Scott Breier is a free-lance cartoonist who posts his work under the nickname "Noodles". I'm saving his older work (some non-color strips featuring Vince the budgie) for later; for now, here is a 2012 offering from him:
Bizarro for April 8, 2013. For those who are not Roman Catholic, an explanation of the joke follows.
This toon appeared not long after Pope Benedict XVI made the decision to step down. When a new Pope is to be elected, the College of Cardinals (the highest rank in priesthood) is summoned to the Vatican to deliberate and vote, and the new Pope must be one of their number. Dan turned this upside-down and sideways to show a cardinal (avian type) wearing the papal mitre (headgear).

Margaret Shulock of the Six Chix provides today's toon, originally published October 1, 2013:
I have a handful of Ziggy panels in my archive. Although his parrot is featured fairly often it is rare for the joke to be bird-related. This is from March 16, 2005 but apparently was a reprint from 2001 and I don't know the actual original date.

Overnight this morning, Mickaboo budgie Miracle passed over to the Rainbow Bridge. Since I am known for providing a forever home where budgies have the run of the place whenever I'm home, I think this Strange Brew from April 27, 2006 is a good tribute to my departed little guy.
Loose Parts from June 7, 2013 ... perhaps another good reason for quarantine of a new arrival?
