We had an alexandrian parakeet. it is 9 months old. We named it tweety. it was very close with us and used to tell so many words including its name very nicely. But unfortunately it flew away last week. We are still in a hope it will come back to us. We don't know whether it will come back to us. We miss him a lot.

Hello, 28 years ago my niece bought me a green ring neck baby for my birthday. When I retired, I moved to Florida and PJ moved with me. However, PJ passed away a few months ago. He was the love of my life and I miss him very much.

PJ rarely was in a cage and always wanted to be on my shoulder. PJ talked a storm and also sang and whistled. I sure miss his morning "hello", and his singing version of "row row row your boat".

Last week by accident I found a local bird rescue and low and behold I found a blue male, not a baby, but young. Hopefully, I will gain his trust and again have a wonderful friend by my side.

I have a Tangerine Ringneck and it doesn't shut the heck up! I love him/her to death, but oh god, I need some sleep. I don't know what sex it is, but mine has a girl's name (Lyia) and since it never laid an egg, I usually refer to the bird as a him.
Beautiful bird, love the wings. Absolutely adore them. Often times i let him take a bath just so he'll stretch that wing out and i find myself just staring at them.
I've had him about 9 years and he was an abandonee. I worked at a petstore with a friend and one day this bird showed up in the store's aviary-she said "i dont know, he was just there one day" I adopted him because i wanted a dove so bad, my father raised them and i just grew up listening to that coo sound as a baby. So i took the bird home but needed a cage. My friend said her mother had recently had a bird and had the extra cage and she gave it to me.
Shortly after i wound up moving in with that friend from the petstore (and her mother), and of course I brought my bird. Oh, was that a nightmare! It kept my new roommates up, they curse him, they wanted me to get rid of him-- and when her mom finally said "oh no, not that bird again!" i inquired to only learn that it was her mother who abandoned the bird at the petstore in the first place! So of all people to adopt the bird she tried to get rid of it was me and i moved it right back into the house and into the exact same cage!
The bird is a survivor. Three times he was attacked by my friend's evil cat, once so bad it required a trip to the vet. The cat's claw sliced open its neck and i scooped it up holding him, thinking he was not long for this world. His blood squirted out in a pulse along with his heartbeat. I was terribly upset--but he didnt die. It been about 7 years since that incident and he's missing a patch of feathers in his neck so when he puffs up to sing its really obvious.
Me and my bird moved out some years later and he enjoys a much larger cage now and alot of out-of-cage time. He's very good at being in the house in general and we often let him out for days. We put his seed dish right with the cat's and the two of them will eat side by side. I've seen the bird snuggle into the cat while she's sleeping. In the spring/fall we'll set his cage on the backporch on cloudy days (bright sun just seems so bad for him) so he can get fresh air.
As much as i can't wait for him to shut up every night, i'll miss him terribly when he his gone.

Margaret Garret,

I just found this site and don't know if you are still seeing the parakeet in your back yard. The little bird you are seeing is probably a domestic parakeet that was purchased locally and has escaped from its home. He will not survive in the wild. Though parakeets exist in the wild in Austrailia, they are a hardier breed. If possible, try to gently capture this little bird. Do not be afraid; he is quite small and really cannot hurt you. Use a small towel if you need to. Before doing this, get a small cage, if possible, and put some water and seed mix into it. Parakeets are very lovable; if no one claims him, he will make an adorable fun little pet.

We recently got a bfa. He is beautiful, but he was mistreated and abused. He will not let me or my husband near him, but he loves my 10 year old daughter, she can do anything she wants to him. She can spread his wings, pet him, he also regurgatates food for her. Hopefully one day we will be able to handle him like my daughter does. He talks very good, and does lots of tricks for us.

Hi, I have a large metal garage shed and converted it into an aviary for diamond doves and zebra finches. They have a fountain and an artificial tree with real branches, and a hibiscis tree.

I live in Anaheim Hills and have had a male Pintail Whydah at my feeders for a few weeks. He is very vocal, and not overly afraid of me when out in the yard or filling feeders. He does seem very interested in the other finches and follows a few around, but I have not been able to determine if any of them are actually female Whydahs.

Yes, these little birds are gifts from God for us to cherish and take care of. Last month I was watering the plants out front when a beautiful little lovebird landed right on my head. I have been wanting some kind of bird (either finches or a canary for years) but my husband said our 4 dogs would go crazy and we have enough animals. It is a miracle to me that this has happened, as my 4 dogs are older now and pay no mind to the birds. I was laid off last year so I am home and able to spend time with my birds. Since the Lovebird landed on my head, I have gotten a singing canary and a beautiful tame cockatiel. I named the Lovebird "Penny" after the old song, "Pennies From Heaven". I truly believe that she was a gift from God. I never would have gotten any of the birds, if it hadn't been for Penny landing right on my head. My husband has been great and says I can have more than one bird because he sees how much joy they bring me. I absolutely love them! I wish I would have known how much love and joy they could have brought me (4 dogs ago!)
Please do not be sad over the loss of your bird, but instead rejoice in the miracle of your relationship with him and those fond memories will stay with you forever. This is just one more testament that God does exist! He has provided to us what we have asked of him!
