I have owned my Yellow Crowned Amazon, Bimini, since 1976; that makes him about 30 years old. He is a 1-man bird, loves me but is skeptical about anyone else. He has a pretty good vocabulary -- pretty bird, hello how are you, wolf whistle, hi I'm Bimini. He still calls for Lila the cat who has been dead now for fifteen years. (Breaks my heart.) Since we live in the Florida Keys, he stays outside year-round in or on his cage in the shade with the door open, loves a misting with the garden hose, alerts us at sundown, lets us know it is dinner time. (He loves meat and potatoes, a meat-eating parrot, exceedingly rare.) Although his wings are not clipped, I still take him around for a bike ride on my shoulder sometimes when things are quiet. He is in great shape, never had a sick day in his life. Evidently they live forever.

Hi my name is Jess and i just got a sun conure for my birthday, i already have 60+ budgerigars, ecelectus, corellas, finche, canaries, galahs, cockatiels and quails and this is another to add to the manargery :)

well this is the second day i have had it, its only 8 weeks so hasnt been sexed yet. his name is Rusti and is very good at playing dead, almost gave me a heart attack lol. It isnt very friendly yet but i am hand feeding it so it should get used to me pretty soon, he loves his cuddles and as soon as i leave it alone it screams really loud. Although i know sun conures arent too good at talking i hope mine will be able to say atleast "Rusti" and "wanna kiss?" its favourite position is on its back licking its foot. weird i know, but every time i check on it thats what its doing, probably like ababy sucking its thumb :) anyway im so excited and have heard only good things about them so i hope Rusti will be my next best friend

I have had my budgie for about a year. Her name is Banana because she is yellow and black. I love her so much. When I take her out she will sit on my shoulder like she is right now. banana is learning to talk and she sings all the time. My budgie is a very good friend because she listens and doesn't talk back at me. When she is in her cage, she dances to the music on the TV. She bobs her head up and down and jumps all around her cage and will start singing. I love my Banana.:)

I recently got a peached-faced lovebird as gift from my dad for christmas last year. Her name is Peaches. Lovebirds are so cute and interesting that I wrote a two-page report on Lovebirds for my biology class this past school year. I spoil my lovebird with fruits and vegetables. It is so funny because I have Peaches and Delilah in the same cage together, and they get along so well. I think my Lovebird is falling in love with my parakeet because of the way they get along with each other. I asked my Biology teacher if I could mix my lovebird's DNA with my parakeet's DNA, and she said it's possible if you do it in a laboratory, but they'll never have babies together. If that should ever happen, I could create a new species of bird. I'll call it, "the Loveakeet!" Lovebirds make great pets because they love you, and whoever/whatever it is around. Lovebirds are the coolest!

Last year for my fiveteenth birthday, a got a female colbalt budgie. Her name is Delilah, which I named her after the radio talk show host on a certain light rock station. I was sad when both Huckle and Clarissa died last year. The cause of death was unknown, even though I think it might have been from natural causes. Anyway, my dad tought little Delilah a new noise. She kinda sounds like a pigeon when she chirps. The other day I was training her how to talk, and when I left the room, it sounded like she said, "Don't leave me." Parakeets are the coolest!

I have a 1 yr green cheek. She is just starting to talk. She screams when you leave the room unless you tell her good-bye. Which is what I tell her everyday when I leave for work. I am still working with her an a better contact call. but she is my baby so we deal with it.

It's really an interesting article. It encourages me to spend more efforts to train my eclectus parrots to speak. I used to keep 4 eclectus parrots, but no one spoke.
