You will be 4 on 6-18-09, my how the years have flown by!
I still remember you as you were hatching and still have your egg shell. I have every large feather you ever shed.

Hi! My name is Sterling Gray

I am an African Grey from Grosse Ile, MI.

Beautiful(In a high pitched voice)
Baby Finster
Little Bindy


9 years old   M

African Grey

He must have his organic cereal with 1/2 % milk, he also loves hard boiled eggs in which I give him tiny pieces to find in little covered forging cups. He loves cooked pasta and he devours all cooked veggies.

His favorite spot is on my shoulder. Other favorite places are under my bed and in my closet after his shower.

Coming off my shoulder when he does not want to. He makes funny grunts and says "no!" and clings behind my back because he knows I cannot reach him.

I love the special language of love she shares with me and only me.

Every single morning at the crack of dawn, he starts to call my name Nicole Nicole Nicole repeatedly until I wake up. He most certainly knows my name and calls me throughout the day when he doesn't see me. He takes a shower daily with me. Just like clockwork after my second cup of java, he will start. "Do you want to go in the shower?"
He loves to play in the parakeet cage for some reason. He hangs upside down and clowns around for entertainment.
.

My Parrot My Self
I would never expect my parrot to tolerate anything that I would not. This includes 1. making sure his home is spotless all the time
2. The best in an organic diet 3. Excercise and companionship 4. Entertainment and interaction
including daily lessons and games.
If I were owned by him, what would I expect? What would my standards be? This.... I give to him. The love of my life.

  Hi
Guess what Ridley (my African Grey sister) learned to make sounds just like the phone! Yesterday, mommy thought she forgot to turn on the answering machine because the phone was ringing off the hook, mama came down stairs and found out it was Ridley not the phone!!! Mom said she needed to answer the Ridley because she was ringing!!! How are you? Here's a vote! Love Cooper

Come visit me, Ridley, Aurora, Cooper, In memory of Crosby & Phoenix.

  I got away again!
Hi Everyone
I flew away again!
This time for 3 days, mom was really upset this time.
I got scared when mom did not come get me until the third day though. She probably could not find me in my hiding spot 4 blocks away.
I was happy to see her riding on her bike calling for me
out loud in her special voice she speaks only to me.
The neibours think she is crazy but she does not care.
She knows now that she must clip my wings because it is just my instinct to fly away.
PEOPLE....PLEASE CLIP YOUR FIDS, YOU PROBABLY WILL NOT BE LUCKY ENOUGH TO HAVE YOUR BIRD COME BACK ONCE, LET ALONE A SECOND TIME!

Come visit me, Sterling Gray.

  Comment from Sterling Gray Himself!!!!!
Hi Everyone!
I just wanted to let you know that I flew the coup for a couple of day's last week!
I stayed out for two whole days all by myself and I am not even 2 yet.
I was chased continuosly by black birds because they felt threatened by me.
I felt really free flying around all by myself without my leash on.
After one whole night and 2 days by myself though I really missed my mom. I missed my continuous neck scratches and love I take for granted from her each day.
Most of all I missed my FOOD, so when I was starving, I came down from that crazy height I was at in that tree and stepped up for that wonderfully delicious peice of cheese!
I love you mom.
Sterling

Come visit me, Sterling Gray.

I think African Grays are the most fun bird, although I am quite attached to my Noble Macaw, Mikey. But he wanted me to tell you that although he doesn't have the vocabulary you do, he thinks you are terrific.

Come visit me, Mikey.

  Hi
Hi, What a beautiful Gray! Thanks for visiting me. My indoor aviary is simple all our bedrooms are around the outside and playgyms in the middle, with swings hung from the ceiling, its about 20x20 (the Den)Course Mom has descovered that the carpet has got to go (gone through to many vaccuums), LOL. We have a big window box off the window but moms making that bigger too with one of those metal carports attached to the birdroom. You sound truly loved. And you are so beautiful. Vote for you.

Come visit me, Miss Babygirl, Cricket & Fluffy.

  and....I forgot something....
(I must be a bird brain! hehehe) I live in a room right by the kitchen. It's a really big room and my mom is nearby a lot. I also live out of my cage, wherever my mom is. I have a playstand in her office and in the family room too. My cage is called the penthouse, the office playstand is the condo and the family room playstand is my vacation home. What a lucky bird I am! Clyde :)

Come visit me, Clyde, Tiki, Buddy, r.i.p. 8/20/08 & Bobbi.

  Hi Sterling
Oh it warms my bird heart to hear that you have such a good home. All us birds should be so lucky! I'm a lucky one too! To answer your question about 'too's, well, yes we are loud....at least that's what my mom says. to me, it's just my normal voice! She says that cockatoo's are demanding and may not be the right bird for everyone. In a couple of words....we can be brats! If your mom wants to get a 'too, I'd read up on everything you can about them. There are many kinds of cockatoo's and we all have our own different quirks. If you want a hugable, loveable bird, then a 'too is your best bet. Just make sure to give them the time they need out of the cage and a whole bunch of attention. (kind of like you already have!) Thanks for visiting me....come visit my flock mates sometime....although I'm the favorite! Birdie hugs, Clyde

Come visit me, Clyde, Tiki, Buddy, r.i.p. 8/20/08 & Bobbi.

  Hi there Sterling Grey
Your adorable. Buddy and Toby said thanks for votoing for them. Hey I used to live on Grosse Ile as a kid on the Navy base. What a small world. I started school there. We were there from 63 to 67. I bet so much has changed since then.

  Tuki says hi
Dear Sterling Gray, You are one lucky bird to have such a loving mom. It sounds like you have brought joy to her, too. My humans visited Michigan several years ago, they say it was very nice. It was during cherry season, so it must have been tastey, too! Have a great day. Do you mind the flight suit? I have wondered if it would help protect my chest from my feather picking, but I also worry that the stress of putting it on might be worse. Stay warm, Tuki

Come visit me, Tuki.
