I have a White Capped Pionus who is spunky, friendly,and that loves to play. He is my baby. Even though I am 11 years old I would love to have at least 2 more of these fantastic birds. My bird,Remy,loves taking showers with me and is very talkitive knowing 20-30 words and phrases. I would recommend this bird for young couples and older maturer children like 9-adult. He can be very moody at times but, usaully very friendly.

My dove is a very special one. I began to travel this spring and summer, at last without the worry of petsitters. About two days after returning from a pilgrimage to Ireland, my doubting husband and I were on the back deck in the evening, having coffee and discussing End Times and the authenticity of the Irish visionary. Not ten minutes into the discussion, as if Heaven was listening, comes the sound of the flutter of wings from over the roof behind us. And to our utter amazement, between us lands this white dove! We looked at each other - speechless. Finally, all I could say is "here's your confirmation about authenticity!" So, we named him Spirit!
Spirit is so intelligent, amusing and gentle. He is a poor flyer so he truely must have dropped out of heaven! He does make to the the curtain rods and our shoulders and heads but tires quickly and sometimes just 'falls' out of the air!. He loves to be kissed, and cuddled and will bury his head inside my sweat jacket and coo up a storm. He is alllllways looking for affection and kisses back. We have to be careful not to step on him since you never when he is around your feet. His constant companions are a red rubber lobster (whose antenas are an object of his affection) and a white styrofoam dove called Baby, which he has mutilated in frustration, trying to elicit a response! He is absoutely in love with my husband's giant white sneakers but has been known to croon to a crumpled paper towel, too!
Spirit is currently hopping from my head to the keyboard because I am not paying attention to him while I type. He has a way of showing you he's happy when you call his name, by breaking his pace every few steps to do a little hop as he comes to you - it's so funny!
His favorite foods so far are safflower and small sunflower seeds but slowly he is expanding his menu.
He keeps me company by following me around like a puppy when I'm out in the garden, somtimes picking at the weeds as I pull them up. At times he tests his wings but usually ends up falling into a bush or the flowers.
Everyone in our family has come to see the dove who dropped out of the sky and each wants a turn sitting him when we hit the road for a spell! Who is more blessed than this dove?

I have hand raised a baby male greenwing from the egg...he was too big for the egg, so his beak is bent way to the side, but he is fine with any type of food, has learned to soak the hard pellets and loves what we eat. The breeder i got him from noticed the deformity, was going out of business, wanted $1,700 or she was going to break its neck, due to unsaleabilty..Is sad that people like this exist...but he has become my best and truest buddy over the last five years and is the best investment i have ever made in a friend (is a toss up between the investment in him and the investment in my wife....lol) but as has been said, not a first bird for a bird-lover to own..they do get moody, try to act tough and scary, but are extremely intelligent and very lovable...if its not your first experiance with larger birds, i would highly recommend a greenwing macaw if you are looking for the best friend you have ever had.

As a parrot behaviorst and having done rescue for numerous years...you MUST understand, especially regarding Macaws that any and all have the potential to bite and cause serious injury. You can have a wonderful, lifetime mate with them, but they are, foremost, a wild animal, most a mere 3rd generation from the wild...also, they are a product of their environment and have days in which they do not want bothered. If you respect their boundaries and respect the damage a beak can do, they make the most awesome pets ever! I just returned from a place that at last count had over 60 dead macaws and 35 more that may have to be euthanized. All due to poor nutrition and lack of basic care/needs. You must also ALWAYS place the birds needs first. If it's too much, please find an adequate home.

hello, ive had my sunny conure for about a year now. He is simply adorable, his name is cracker, but my parterner and i call him mwat-mwacks cos thats the sweet little sound he makes. Apparently Cracker has been left in a cage for most of his life (he was about seven years old when i got him), which wouldnt surprise me as he was desperate for attention when i first got him and he could barely fly, and he was scared of his cage. I personally think he was mistreated by a man as he genuinely doesnt like men, although he is getting better. Some people think that craker is spoiled because he has his own minature bedroom (made from an old sofa), where he sleeps and goes whenever he wants to have a good chewing session (this stopped him chewing all my clothes up) he absolutely loves it! Cracker has a thing for towels, he despises them. Whenever my boyfriend or i get out of the bath he starts attacking (especially my boyfriend Lee). He can get very jealous of Lee and bite him viciously when we are on our own, but just like a child hes as good as gold when we`re with other people. Despite crakers funny ways we love him and are proud of his progress!

i have a scarlet macaw it screaches all the bloddy time i hate it and wish i never gotten it (and so does my wife). i hope this is an example to otheres. my macaw (bobby) screeches so much because i probally dont pay enough attention because i have to work so much to feed my four children. if i could turn back time i would love my little buttercup bobby so much.

oliver is one of the best things in our life. its a privilige to be able to have him as a family member. lets keep up the species to help with mortality. just think he is a rapter that could go out of extinction in the wild if not taken in concern. rosienski mass.

hi, i recently got a pair of cockatiels. they where not well care for the female is really mean. the male will fly and land on my arm or finger. so i have hopes they'll come around. the old owner used to keep them covered all the time when they needed their cages cleaned. i did notice after they saw me cleaning their cage and giving them water they perked up a bit and on day two the male was singing none stop. then the male started hammering his toy with his head so i looked it up and found it to be good. i don't know their ages but i have fallen head over heels for them. i named them bonita and goupo. i also have a black face love bird named solitaire. i have had him now for almost a year. butterfly from the vill
