One day I made a pact with my parents. If I wanted a pet I had to keep my room clean for a whole year. At first I wanted a rabbit, but when arriving at the store I thought that they were boring and inanimate. But the budgies were fun and full of life. They chattered sweet nothings to thier cage mates and came in all colors. At the time I liked the color blue. I also felt sad for a blue budgie digging in the corner of the cage, sweeping away the bedding, trying to get out. So I chose "that" budgie 9 years ago and dubbed her "Polly" for Doctor Dolittle's macaw, Polynesia.. Awards

Hi! My name is Polly Tenwood N.

I am a Budgerigar from New Port Richey, FL.

Boogie,booge,bu- dgie bird, budgie wudgie, sweetie, moltn' lava, Polly bird, feather butt, tweety, sweety tweety, fluff, blue bird, bouncing baby blue budgie bird, piglet, old lady.

17 years old   F


Oats, millet, Vive veggie bars, rice, shredded carrot, peas, kale.

Shoulder and inside T-shirts.

USED to like cats (loved eating cat ears).

In the begining I used to bite her & freak out when someone came close to my cage. But once she learned how to take care of me I have become a very brave little bird. I used to only eat seed and drink from slime coated water bowls. But now I eat lots of healthy food & drink from a clean water bottle! I love that my owner did her research (even if it was later on) and we are best buds! She's taught me to love being picked up & petted. We even spend some time learning tricks together! She may have taught me 12 of them, but I trained my owner to let me cuddle in shirts!

Greets people by raising her wings up.
Loves EVEYONE, any new person she sees she flies to & gives kisses.

If I see it, it's mine.

  Hello Polly!
You're such a cute bird! Thanks for visiting me in September. Sorry to write back now!

To answer your question, I knew my budgie, Benny, was getting old when he had trouble staying on our shoulders because his grip was getting weak. He also would tire more easily and nap a lot. But he was happy until the day he died, bless his soul. You still have a lot of happy memories ahead of you!

Come visit me, Benny~in memorium & Kermit.

  Hello from Brett
Thanks for coming and visiting me. Yeah there aren't that many Vasas out there. Mom's only seen one other around hear. He's at a pet shop about an hour away, and he's been there for over two years because the customers know just as much as the employees about us...which is to say not much. Mom would love to adopt him but he is very expensive through them and she has her hands full with the parrots she has so... Well here is a vote for you. Ttyl.


Come visit me, Brett - Greater Vasa Parrot, Pippin & Ollie (the bird formerly known as Harry).

  Hi Polly!
Thanks for the wonderful welcome!! You sure are a pretty bird too. I really like the color blue, and you have lots of it. That big cage really is mine, my Mommy and Daddy bought it for me for Christmas last year. Supposedly the cage in the box was much larger than they expected, but I sure enjoy living in a palace. Maybe in the future I will be able to share my palace with a nice young lady conure!!! Thanks again for the vote and I will also vote for you now!!

Come visit me, Gilbert.

  Yeah I was a plucker when I first came to live with Dad but he got me all over that with lots of love and Pluck No More. I'm a lot better now. I have a bowl in the bottom of my cage that Dad keeps filled with fresh water and I use it to bathe in when the mood strikes. Dad also sprays me every day or so when he catches me not looking. It sounds like you have your momma well trained. And those humans think they train us1 What goofies!

  Hi Polly
Mom got infatuated with Vasas in the 80's when she saw some wild ones that seemed very tame and interested in every move she made...kinda looked like a mixture of a Pigeon, a vulture, and a Parrot. The way we fanned our wings was interesting as well. I don;t want to toot my own horn or anything, but I am one cool bird!!, lol. You are awesome too. Thanks for visiting. Here's a vote for you~~Harold

  Hi Polly
You are very pretty Polly. My mom had a little blue parakeet years ago, his name was Petey. I had many casts and wraps on my right wing for 5 months. My wing was severely broken and torn by my sister fid SweetPepper. Shes a big senegal who I couldn't fight. It took a long time for my wing to heal but now I have to deal with a big cyst on my wing. It has to be monitored. I am very happy and very active. My mom says I have birdie ADHD, I never stay still long enough for a good scratch. lol Thanks for visiting, Kacey.

  Echo Parakeet?
We have never seen one...I must make mom look into that. Being a rare keet may give me the motivation I need to let my plumage bloom. Here's a vote for you, sweet cute budgie~~Hollie

  What a sweet little guy. I have 4 parakeets, however they love each other and want nothing to do with me, unless I am feeding them or giving them new toys :)

  Hi Polly
Thanks for visiting with Tegan.
When I fostered Tegan she was in with the rest of my flock. I spent as much time with her as I did with the rest and there were many others who came to visit too. Tegan bonded with me yes but it was not me that she screamed for once she went home it was the flock. The original owners decided that Tegan would be much happier with her new flock than being in a house all day alone while they worked.
By the way, Polly is beautiful. I think she is the oldest Budgie I have ever seen. That says so much about you and your care for her. Great Job!!

Come visit me, Rocky, Sadie Rest In Peace My Sweet Baby, Rocky & Me Morgan.

  Thanks for visiting me Polly. You sound like a sweet little budgie. My family had a blue and yellow budgie before they got me. They loved her a lot. Now they love me a lot. I love it when they rub my head. In the morning the first thing I say is my mommie's name. I like sitting on shoulders too. I take naps on my people's shoulders sometime when they are sitting still watching tv, like today on Dad's shoulder. Bye......Oh, Daisy's right. We Red Bellies are sweet little birds!

Come visit me, Sunny.

Hi Polly thanks for visiting our page. We love budgies we have 3 at our house. Red-Bellied parrots aren't very common right now but they are getting more popular. They are sweet, playful, and not very noisy. Great apartment birds. Though Daisy isn't the best talker she makes up for it with her great personality. I'd recommend a Red-Bellied parrot to anyone who wants a sweet little friend.

Come visit me, Daisy (Red-Bellied Parrot).

  Parakeets are the sweetest little birds.
Thanks for visiting me. Nassau is a wonderful place and Akuti is doing very well. We are planning to visit her very soon. It won't be long until her and her mate will be thinking about raising a family. I was hoping to see her when they do. Atlantis is planning on opening a similar type of eco friendly place. But Ardastra is so intimate and friendly. No hords of people pushing and shoving. It is quiet and the different species love it there. Lots of interaction with them. You can go at your own pace too. Its why I wanted to help them with the donation of Akuti. I will let you all know when she is approching motherhood.

Come visit me, Eckkie, Akuti, Nazreen, Chip & Zulu.

  Hi Polly Bird!
We love your pictures! You are a very gorgous Budgie! Both Snuggies and I are the loudest in the house, but I can sure give her a run for the money! My human brother likes to make happy screaming noises when he sees all of us, and we give him a few noises back!

Come visit me, Snuggles and her gang & Feather Plucker's Anonymous.

Hey thanks for the visit. Our mom wants to learn how to teach us tricks one of these days when she gets a little bit of extra time. You sure look really cute and like you are a lot of fun to play with. Talk to you soon!- Desi & Lucy.

  Hi Polly Tenwood N
Thankyou so much for the nice visit. Yeah I feel so lucky to have gotten this parrot. But I felt so bad when I found out a few days later of what happened to other ones there after. Some people in this world are just too in love with money and no care for life.

Well you sure picked an awsome cute little bird. Aw :) love the photo with him the plant and what a good close up too . Nice. :)
eat cat ears hahahah that is cute.
