I researched different species of parrots and decided that Parrotlets would be a good 1st choice for a new parrot owner. When I met Desi, he stepped up to my finger right away and started 'preening' my hair. I knew he was for me! He was also a very good 'helper' with younger parrotlets born a month later, even though he was an only child!. Awards

Hi! My name is Desi

I am a Parrotlet from Colorado Springs, CO.


10 years old   M


I love any kind of seed and food treats. I love it when my Mommy lets me taste something healthy of her food.

Wherever Lucy is, and wherever I can find something fun to do.

I hate it when I get too tired and I get cranky.

I just love my Mommy so much. I love it when she will put me on her shoulder and sing and dance salsa music with me. I love to rock back and forth and watch myself in the mirror. I also like to coo and sing to my Mommy when I'm in my 'soft' mood!

I love anything plastic and white in color. I go bananas when I see plastic white objects and puff up and get all 'BIG' and mean- tossing the object anywhere I can..

Be patient with me.... God isn't finished with me yet! I'm really a very sweet boy!.

  Giving Desi a visit too. :)

To continue on amazons: Yes they do talk great but like they say there is NO garantee, I love him even if he did not talk. He learnt alot, but it is alot of repeating. I fouund the trick is to say words with alot of emotion and with a tone that excites him and I keep words with the appropiate action then he remembers it better.

For coming out of the cage, he does loves out yes then sometimes he begs to go in it , you it depeneds on mood. He does ok being alone in the cage when I am at work because I got him a huge cage, and I have small tv for him :) They like voices . company for him. As for other birds, I would not now cause he is older .Visually he did ok with a bird that stayed with us short time before, but I would not trust them , if you get one as a baby and start young, then yeah I am sure they get along good. Then again your birds are so small I would be afraid to have them that close together.

Amazons for me turned out to be the best. :) There is a smaller kind of amazon that I would like If I saw one, it is the white fronted amazon, Much smaller than mine and they seem so cute.

Gave ya a vote little guy. Your Mom is so nice! And I do not blame her for not going anywhere on vacation unless she has piece of mind for a good caretaker for you guys. My Mommy too feels that way. She wants to visit her family in Canada. My grandma and grandpa are in Canada. So mommy found a great pet sitter from a referral from the vet. She came to visit and I like her! So mommy will pay her to come over and take care of me when she goes away. She even has a web site. My mommy prefers me to stay home where I am comfortable and safer from diseases than if I went to be boarded elswhere.
Tell your mommy to ask the vet for a referral for home pet sitter. That is the best and I hope you guys can go visit too .
