Savannah is a female SI eclectus. I got her at 9 months of age. She first learned to yahoo like the prairie dog, then meow exactly like my cat who stays outside but meows at the front door. She's finally saying hello occassionally when she hears you in another room. She's turned into a real snuggler and has been a great joy so far.

I've owned a meyers parrot for almost 2 weeks, I couldn't of picked a better bird! The only problem I've found is that there is little information on this specific bird, I've found them to be every bit of what the internet has said about them to be true. I honestly couldn't imagine my life without her now.

Morgan is a three year old Meyers with tremendous coloring. She is friendly with all who belong in the household and those who visit. She gets along well with our four dogs and mimics the whistle to call them into the house, as well as the "meow" for the two cats. She does not speak, but can mimic about ten distinct household sounds. The introduction of Morgan to the household was a learning experience for the dogs and cats, who were very curious and had to be educated that the bird was not for their amusement. She is now carefully guarded by the dogs who sleep by her cage. Her roomy cage is housed in the heart of the living room so that she can enjoy the daily routine of all. She doesn't "scream" but whistles and chirps contentedly, especially at nature programs when birds are calling. Her favorite daily routine falls on the cool FLorida days where she sits on the porch and calls out to the wild birds while swinging on her rope toy.

I bought my Sengal 23 years ago, her birthday will be next month. When I got her she was very young, i think to young, from a pet store and had many problems. Quiet she is not! Behaviors many! But I love her dearly! She is very anti-social. dont know why. But we find joy in her anyway with her antics. She has learn to talk. Says her name BoBo, makes the sound of the phone ringing, says my name, and on occasion says a swear word. When she is extremly afraid she will get out of her cage and run! into my bedroom and stand beside my bed and yell. We have been through good and tough times, she is my friend. four years ago BOBO lost her friend. believe it or not she shared her cage with a LoveBird! they were the best of buddies, snuggled with each, other preened eaach other etc. BOBO looked for days when Beesha passed on. It was heartbreaking. so anti social but a good heart and loving, thats my sengal

I am the joyful sister of a 3 yr old female eclectus "Gerty". She has an extensive vocabulary and often shouts "WOW" when she impresses herself by teasing the cat. She is sweet & sour. Sometimes chases me across the floor if she has escaped from her cage. She has a flock to chat with; blue/gold Macaw, yellow crown amazon, & sun conure, all of whom she imitates. Her favorite treat is fresh aloe leaf. She will sit in the shower endlessly and is in beautiful plummage. I love all of what she brings to my life .

I don't have a Senegal, but a very closely related bird, a Red-Bellied Parrot. They are very similar in appearance. His name was Pedro and I got him at the pet store I was working at. I was going to change his name, but at three months old, I came in and asked him, "Watcha doing Buddy?" and he replied, "Pedro is a pretty bird". I was so excited, I was running around, telling the rest of the staff about him. Two months and $750 later, I came home with Pedro in the largest cage I could afford, an 18 x 18. He has loads of toys, but his favorite thing to do is to be on his perch in the kitchen window, looking out on the world while I do my chores. He also loves to groom me, whether it be my hair or my nose! He'll give kisses, and flap his wings on request. He's an awesome whistler and knows that when I say 'pretty bird', it's time for the wolf whistle. He is a delight to me and he's the only boyfriend for me :D

I spotted my new Senegal, Skeeter, for sale at a bird fair in New Orleans. The sign said he was 14 yrs old and "semi-tame". His band says 1991 so the age part is correct. However, he is a little lover. His feathers are perfect. And so is his attitude. I brought him and his cage home with me for only $150. What a bargain that was for me. I love him already and he seems completely nonplushed by moving to a new home. Please don't ever think that only baby parrots are to be considered as pets. This "old man" is calm, cool and an absolutely delight. His favorite toy and security in life is his swing. It looks to be as old as he is. But he can make that thing swing and will do so on que. Sweet, sweet, Skeeter.

My Senegal parrot, named "KiKi" is an absolute delight! I bought her at age 3 months, she just turned 1 year old on 7/6/05. She is friendly, comical and loves acrobatics. Best of all she is not noisey at all. She is learning to speak a few words and some phrases too. Very intelligent bird. They love routine and get used to it easily. She's like my best friend!

I have an eight year old, male, senegal. I took him in when he was 4 from a family that did not have the time to spend with him. I named him Tarzan due to his king like attitude. He had many behavioral problems when I first got him, but is a much happier and loving bird now. His favorite activities are swinging on tree branches, dunking his head into his water, and tourmenting my roomates dogs. although most senegals are said to be relativley quit, Tarzan is very vocal and is slowly building his vocab. His favorte phrases are "baby baby", "pretty bird", and of coure his very loud king of the jungle call. This year I brought Tarzan to college with me and he has fit in perfectly. He has learned to trust strangers and is a regular party animal. he is such a great friend to have!
