I have had Peter, a grey cockatiel, for 12 years now. He is a well-natured, very calm bird. However, fully taming him has been a challenge, partly because he had a partner up until 3 years ago. Peter has discovered a love lately. He loves sailing. We live on board our 30 ft. sailboat during the summer for approximately 10 weeks. Now I know why pirates carried parrots. My cockatiel is a hoot on board a boat. Peter flourished, he whistled contently, started imitating Terns. I was hoping he would mock a loon, but that did not happen. His plumage improved immensely due to the humidity and different weather. He was outdoors underneath the dodger all day, except for rainy periods and during our voyages. He slept inside the cabin at night. We would often be approached by other boaters on their dinghies wondering where the "unnatural" bird sounds were coming from. Peter has his way of complaining when we sail in rough weather he screams and screeches. When the conditions improved, he would start his happy whistle. He is going to be sailing with us every year. I could not stand to leave him home alone and only having someone to come in daily to care for him.

We have had birds for a year and a half now, but just got our baby blue and gold about a month ago. He is a totally different experience. He is such a joy to be with. He is seven months old and so loving. He loves for you to hug him and kiss him. He will lay on his back for you to tickle his belly and laughs. He follows us around like a little puppy. Our family says we talk about our birds more than most people do about their kids. I tell them that is alright because they are our kids.

I have a 20 year old timneh named Damascus ( due to the damascus steel like pattern her feathers make) she loves to mimic my car alarm
the microwave the phone, chopping noise from the kitchen , when I am clipping my nails she makes the same clic -clic -clic she will shake claw, do two type of flapping, dance, circle, get in her cage when told to all on command. This is a bird that needs love interaction and stimulus, you can not just put it in a cage and look at it you have to make it part of your flock. A vey loving and intelligent bird!

I have a GCC named Oz that I have had for six months now. He is about 10 months old. I have tried to teach him to talk but with no luck, but he does mimic sounds. He often lays down flat or on his side to be petted, and can do somersaults and head stands up against a pillow! He enjoys spending time with me the most, but also likes his little playmates, my pet parakeets, Yawn and Stretch. They play together, eat together, and bathe together. Occasionally, Oz is a bit nippy-when it comes to having to go back in his cage, at bed time, or when I head out to work. I have found Oz to be a great companion and a very loving pet.

We have a girl Rainbow Lorikeet that we got suddenly and knew nothing about pet birds at all!She is a sweetie that plays soccer on the floor with a cat ball with a bell (but no catnip) in it and loves to give kisses and take noisy,splashy baths in a pyrex brownie pan.She even said my name after 3 days with us!She is so funny when she plays she could get Frankenstein out of a bad mood.I love her so much and never knew what I was missing until she came our way.We still have to think of a girl name for her because we thought she was a he until the DNA results came in last week. Princess would be appropriate,LOL.

I am new to the bird world. It began the day a very brave and tough little female parakeet, who survived being outside from September 2003, until January 22, 2004, was too cold...too tired to feed at our wild bird feeder. We had tried many times during that time frame to catch her...she would have NO part in it. She seemed to love her freedom. When we brought her in, her left foot was black from frostbite...her right foot red and swollen. Within a day or two she lost her left foot. The circulation in her right foot was damaged too and her foot began to darken with gangrene.

Even throughout the loss of her feet, she continued to thrive inspite of the obvious discomfort. I live in the Chicago area and anyone who knows the kind of weather we had this year will think she is a miracle. Her will to live and survive the sub-zero weather here in January, only proved she was well worth the effort to make comfortable until her dying day. This tough little bird has managed to adjust to a life without her feet (they were frostbit beyond repair by the time we could finally catch her). Through trial and error, we have found a way to make her a happy and comfortable bird in her modified cage.

Her chirps and singing in the morning is music to my ears. As she continues to adjust to a footless life, we will continue to expand her horizons to a more normal existence. For now, she seems content to be in the cage. No, she cannot walk but she has figured out that she can hop from spot to spot by propelling herself with the bottom part of her legs.

I have raised harlequin macaws for fifteen years. I kept my first baby, also a few others that had unique beginnings. They are very smart, pick up new phrases quickly and so very loving. I have blue & gold, scalets and greenwings but the harlequins are my very favorite.
