Jury members of the 6th Championship
She graduated technical school with a degree in geodesy. However, land measuring did not become her passion. She loves handicrafts, so after school she set up her own business producing and selling hand-made jewellery. She has attempted various professions. She was even a paramedic. And now she is raising her little daughter. She loves animals and has always had a pet at home since she was a child: rats, hamsters, a crab, a miniature rabbit, a green iguana, a chameleon, a bearded agama, a cockatiel, a husky dog, a sea aquarium, and, of course, her pride - the Umbrella cockatoo named Tomy, a participant in the 4th International Talking Birds Championship of Poland "PARROT CHAT" 2017/18. We could also watch her wonderful videos with Tomy in the "Parrot Videomakers" fb group, where one of them won the title of the Parrot Video of the Year 2018.
He has been professionally involved in illusion for 30 years. His artistic nickname is Brozi, and he calls his magic show Brozi Magic Show. The show features, among others, David Copperfield's famous guillotine trick. As the only one in Poland and one of eight illusionists in the world, he can drive a car into a crowd with his eyes covered. He also uses telepathy and teleportation. Birds have accompanied him in his shows for 25 years. Initially they were pigeons and for the last 10 years they have also been budgerigars. In 2014, he was a finalist in the 7th edition of Got Talent. Of course, his talent was illusion. He performed not only in Poland, but also in almost all of Europe. However, his greatest joy are always his charity shows for children in hospices and hospitals, when he brings a smile to their faces.
He is also involved wherever help is needed but there is no communication. He is a ham radio operator and is active in the emergency communications staff. His call sign is SP3MST.
His love for birds has led him to own a Yellow-cheeked amazon named Kuki. But it was definitely not magic but Kuki's talent that led him to participate in the 4th PInternational Talking Birds Championship of Poland 2017/18. His work involves a lot of travelling and living in suitcases, which Kuki, who accompanies him not only on trips but also during performances, copes with perfectly. Being together practically non-stop, getting to know each other and learning about each other, have made their relationship unique. Unusual situations in which life puts them, bring them very close to each other. These two "lovebirds" show people how strong a bond can be built with a parrot, and Brozi spares no effort to share his experience with other parrot owners.
A Romanist and linguist by profession, a bird lover since childhood, and the owner of Zara the African parrot for eight years, who was elected the Chatterbox of the Year 2017/18 in our competition.

Currently, she is the owner of the Green-cheeked conure with ADHD named Richard, who provides her with new challenges every day. She is also trying to teach him to talk.

Owner of famous Indian Ring-necked parakeet named Carol - the Vice-Master of Poland of the 2nd Talking Birds Championship "PARROT CHAT" 1999. Carol has become famous by declaiming Polish romantic poetry. Now, Mr. Zaręba is an owner of the Alexandrine parakeet named Arni (a contraction of Arnold), but his interest in birds developed also in the sphere of representatives of our indigenous fauna. That is why he can be met with field glasses when he is watching them in their natural inhabitat. Moreover, he constructs nest boxes and attaches them on trees, and in winter time he fattens birds on birdtables which he also makes by himself.
