Mangobirdie (pictured above) will be 6 in June. He has owned me since he was 6 months old. His vocabulary is limited to "Hello" sounds more like Helwo, lol. He also can say my name Karen and he always says it twice. sounds like "Kawen, Kawen". He loves to play & say "Peek a Boo"! Another favorite is "Out now." He loves to take a bath or shower, and I cannot say either word unless I am going to give him one otherwise I have to spell it. Thanks ~ Kawen
We have a 5 year old Sun Conure named Cuervo. The first day we brought him home he picked up my husbands laugh. He laughs so hard and throws his head back like a person does when they are laughing hard. His laugh will bring you right out of any fowl (ha ha) mood. He also coughs, says his name and hello, dances to any music. He loves to call the kitty, say kiss kiss, and night night when we put him down. He makes sounds of doors squeaking and telephone ringing. We were told when we purchased him that they would not talk ....well I have news for you they do... and they are a lot of fun to have around. He is a great form of entertainment and a great companion. He loves to snuggle with us when we watch TV. His favorite TV shows are ones with laugh tracks....He laughs with them.
My pet parakeet Bella (seven months) is so cute and funny. The other day I was in the kitchen making a prepared biscuit mix and Bella flew right to the bowl and stuck her face in the mix. Her beak was covered with batter and she loved it. I call her my little shadow because now she is always on my shoulder following me to the kitchen to see what she can taste now. She loves fruit, crackers, pizza crust, rice and now biscuits..
My pet cockatiel, Caesar is very special to me. He is able to whistle the theme songs to the television show The Simpsons. Every day, like clockwork, he will start to whistle it when its almost time to watch.
Oskar, my 3 year old African Grey, is bilingual. In the mornings if he hears me and I haven't gone to say hello to him yet he will call out Hellooooooo! If he hears my husband he says Buenos dias! Actually, he has an incredible vocabulary including asking for his food and telling my children off when they start yelling at each other. He also barks like the dogs, whistles like the canaries and I can't tell you how many times we have gone to answer the phone thinking it was ringing. And he laughs exactly like me, which gets us all laughing!
My cockatiel is the best she tries to eat my eyes and I love her so much. Her name is Star. I love her and she loves me too.
This is a story about our almost 5 year old parrot named Shiraz. She is a Lilac-Crowned Amazon. This story takes place 2 years ago when our family took a trip to Mexico. The lady who usually took care of our parrots had moved so we asked the manager of the pet store we bought them off of to watch them for the week. We had 2 parrots then. A Blue-Headed Pionus named Oliver who was just a little baby and Shiraz. We were gone for 1 week.
I wanted to brag about our Greenwing ,APPLE! We work in the fashion world. I am a celb. makeup artist and my partner a fashion photographer. We have had our Apple since she was 30 days old. She is now 1 yr. She is the luckiest bird in the world and knows it. SHE GOES EVERYWHERE WITH US!!
My bird Lewis is very smart, He is a cockatiel. He Says 10 Phrases, Eats when you eat and Copies Tunes. When He sees Our Cat he says "Puss Puss Kitty". We have 2 other birds he likes to me loud when they our out. If I let him out while I eat he take some and runs away with it and eats it.
Morgan is a Lutino Cockotiel. I really do not know if it is a Morgan or a Morgina yet. But it looks like an old man with its bald spot on the back of it's head so I assumed it is a male. Morgan reminds me of a man with a balding spot on the back of his head. Morgan may never talk as I am mute but he is already copying my whistle that I use when I call my dog, Magic. Morgan also has told the cat, Tom Tom who is boss in the family...he is!, not the cat. Morgan thumped the cat on the nose and the cat has been cautious of that squawkie bird ever since. Morgan was purchased after my father passed away to help me get over my depression. Morgan loves being on my shoulders and he is so affectionate. He has this special squawk he gives when he wants me to come get him. I open the door to the cage and he jumps onto it and wait for my finger to get on it so he can be lifted the rest of the way out. Altho I still have my depression, Morgan has given me many happy times and since he is a young bird I hope to have many years of happiness with him. Morgan rides around the house on my shoulder while I am in my power wheelchair. When he falls to the floor I put my foot out and Morgan climbs on my toes and then starts walking up my leg to my hand so he can get back on my shoulder again. Like I said, Morgan may never learn to talk and that is ok, I like his noises.
My husband and I have three parrots. A Congo African Grey (Beakman), an umbrella cockatoo (Sidney) and a red lorde amazon (Popeye). When the cockatoo and amazon start screaming in unison Beakman will say "Be quiet, shhhhhhh, Popeye stop it, Sidney no no. He is my bird noise monitor. He also will reprimand the cat when he is clawing the carpet. He will say Dufuss, no no no. They all have their own unique personalities and I love them all! Beakman has appx. a 300 word vocabulary and every morning when I leave for work he sends me of with "Bye bye, I got to go to work, have a nice day, I love you" and then makes a kiss noise. What a way to start your day!
My baby Sydney 5 yrs old mini Macaw isn't so happy now. I brought home a 4 month old Congo Grey and she hates him. She will squawk as loud as she can when I show him any attention but if I play with her first and say I need to play with the baby now she will say ok and be quite. Buddy cant really talk yet but he is doing baby grunts and every once and a while will wolf whistle ty for time to brag
Sweetie, my cockatiel, is the best thing I ever had! I can't ask for a better bird who flies on my shoulder all the time! She is so smart!
My 2 year old quaker Elliot loves the song Manamana by The Muppets. To wake me up on Saturday morning he sings "manamana do do do do do" over and over a little louder each time until I wake up and take him out of his cage.
My 7 month old female cockateil-Pennelope- knows how to say "hey baby", and she always rubs her head up and down on my cheek or lips! cockateils are one of the most loving birds!
My pet sunshine is the most cutest bird in the world he is so cute!!!!!!!!!!
My name is Ryan. I have a indian ring neck. He is very smart, when I take out his food he is very happy to see it. He is 9 years old and very cute. He is very funny because at 3:00 P.M he starts pulling at his cover because he is ready to go to bed. But my mom will tell him it is to early to go to bed. We put him to bed at 6:00 P.M. His name is Phil.
My 3 cockatiels, Dr. Hook, Dizzy, and Arlo are my best friends. They share
I have two; "No. 1" bird is a 4 yr old male Senegal I "hand-raised" from a chick, and "No. 2" bird is a 3 1/2 yr old female Blue-Front Amazon I purchased at 6 months. Sundance (the Senegal) purrs like a cat and makes a not-so-nice-sounding "body-function" noise! He likes to run Choo Choo (the Blue-Front) off her perch. Although she is four times his size, he terrorizes her. They are both so sweet individually, and generally behave when I carry one on each shoulder. They do "kiss-kiss" by putting beaks towards my face. Choo Choo likes to say "atta baby" when she does something clever. She says many, many more things, but I don't want to overdo it. She also shakes hands and imitates my answering machine!
Solley, my 6 year old nanday conure, can imitate the ding of the microwave as it finishes cooking.
Hi, my female quaker parrot LILO is just the sweetest lil' thing. I've had her for nearly 4 months, she grows like a tiger, she can "wave" and "turn-around", she is friendly with everyone (except my mum, she doesn't like her at all for some reason?). She gives me kisses, she quacks like a duck, and she lets me pat her wherever!
I have two Eclectuses (Ozzy and Scarlet) who wolf whistle whenever I drop something. Ozzy frequently goes up to Scarlet and says in a deep sexy voice Hey Baby/Babe how ya doin’? I don’t know where he learned this but its very funny. Scarlet always replies with a ‘Hey Oz my man’ or a ‘Sorry I’m busy weirdo’ depends on her mood. Ozzy doesn’t seem to care though. These two birds are both 1 ˝ years old and very special to me
My little lovebirds are awesome they make peeping noises all the time when I hold them and they are very active!
My Parrot Mykah sings the oscar meyer weiner song everytime i say "HOTDOG!!"
I was going to name my Grey Rip Van Winkle at first since he rips everything within his grasp, however, in April on my birthday the following happened.
I have a 9 year old Senegal parrot that I rescued. He is so special! His name is Rodney, and he is handicapped. He cannot fly because his previous owner's dog got him and broke his wing. Well, now, he is a Therapy Animal (goes to nursing homes, hospitals, schools etc) and MY Service Animal. So yes, my boy Rodney is VERY special indeed!
Our flock consists of 5 special birds. Cookie, Bam Bam, Java, and Aliyah are such sweet Cockatiels who have their own personalities and charm us daily. Cookie and Bam Bam beg for our human food, and most of the time we will give in to their demand. Our Gold-Capped Conure Zeuss, is so smart and comical. She is potty-trained, understands 6-8 words, coos when we sing to her, and anytime a female visits us she immediately goes to her bell to welcome them. Our flock gets time out of their cages frequently to fly and mingle with each other; it's been a "family affair" for sometime now. We love them so much!!!!!
Hi everyone...my budgie has an extraordinary vocabulary but one of the sentences he says is "Hello your so pretty..what's your name, my name is Jojo Ryan, I'm a budgie, I talk". He is amazing, he also does the moon walk (like Michael Jackson) and gives great kisses. I love him so much.
