I was out flying in the great wide open when I saw a tree, small but just big enough for me to land on it. I was feeling a bit tired and hungry and saw people walking by the tree. The people were all inside the building staring out at me and talking to one another, and throwing food from the door. Soon a girl showed up, she walked right up to me and started talking to me and I decided to step-up. The people came out from the building and started to talk to her. Then we all went into the building. They were talking about me, where I had come from and how I wasn't Picasso, the bird the girl was looking for. Later that day I went to the Animal Shelter, waiting for someone to claim me, but no one came. I got fed lots of Apples and had lots of fun though. A week later that same girl that had picked me up when I landed on that small tree showed up. She wanted to know if a family had found me, and when she knew no one had, she brought me home. She had a different African Grey named Picasso who she still looked for, but she loved me and said if we can find Picasso I'll have a sister. But we never found Picasso. I'm glad I met my new mommy, I love her and I love being spoiled by her.. Awards

Hi! My name is Oliver

I am a Congo African Grey from Puyallup, WA.

Oli-bird and Trouble

19 years old   M

Congo African Grey

"Nut-nuts" (AKA Peanuts), Peanut Butter, "Roni"(AKA Pepperoni),
"Tatos"(AKA Mashed Potatos),
Apples, Banana Peel, and basically if it's not good for you I love it!

Anywhere on mommy or on the window perch.

I hate laser pointers! and playing "Get the butt", also when mommy leaves my sight.

My mommy leaves my door open 24 hours a day so I can play anytime! I also get to go anywhere she goes, and when mommy and daddy got married I even got to go on their honeymoon!

I enjoy a good hour of circling my cage after eating or playing. I love playing with bows and hanging out with my cat Kelly..

  Hello From Canada
I just voted for you for being so lucky by landing at the right place to find such a good mom to love you. My first mom is Zazoo's mommy (their human daughter.) She gave me to my mom and dad when I was very young and brought me all the way from Mass. to Canada as a gift to them - cage and all - I am a female yellow canary, but I think I would have showed you beautiful songs I could sing! ♥

Come visit me, Sunny ~ In Loving Memory ~.

  Hi Oliver
Welcome, my name is Rosco, I'm a 10 year old African Grey too. I'm really happy that you found your Mom. It sounds like it was meant to be. My Mom plays "get your butt" too, when she does, I will turn around and show her my butt and laugh. She loves it and so do I. I am being naughty right now, pulling my feathers. I hope to stop doing it soon. What kind of carrier does your Mom use when she takes you places?

Come visit me, Rosco.
