At the time, I had recently adopted out my militiary macaw, Vinyard, due to his screaming. He was not a very tame bird and the closest I could ever get to him was him taking a treat from my hand. He only screamed when I wasn't home and I was working a lot, barely home and my neighbors were upset about the noise. It wasn't fair to him or my neighbors, I guess. I fell in love with Miak when I met him and he cuddled with me. I got him as a baby and handfed him.. Awards

Hi! My name is Miak the Swamp Thing

I am a Jenday Conure from Worcester, MA.

15 years old   M

Jenday Conure

Bananas, papaya, peanuts, I love nutriberries

I love to hang out on top of a ferret hammock I have in my cage. It is a cube shape and I also sleeps on top of it.

As an aratinga, of course, screaming is the #1. Also, I hate her boyfriend. We have a sort of rivalry. Even if he tries to be really nice to me, I just want to bite him! In fact, I want to bite everyone but her, I am very possessive!

I love when she brings me treats and I love to hang out, perched under her neck on the crease of her shirt and yes, I love to make shirts holey!

I don't really talk, except when I hear her talk on the phone I says, "OK" over and over and I like to say step up repeatedly, even if I am already being held. I think it's fun to "sneak up on" her from a hole I chewed in my hammock. I also like to "grumble" at her when I hear her late at night, but I know I should be sleeping, and I like to try to imitate her boyfriend's snore. Lastly, I despise her sister, if she comes to visit, I'll run on the floor at her with my beak open and chase her out of the house!.

Life is good, so SCREAM!.

  Miak's Message
I haven't gotten a message in a while, so in typical conure style, I say "squawk, squawk, squawk!" to remind everyone that I am important!

Come visit me, Miak the Swamp Thing.

  I went to work with mom yesterday! I had so much fun and I actually let a few people hold me. I kept trying to fly back to mom, but I didn't bite anyone!!! Mom was so proud of me, that means I got lots of snuggles and special treats!!!!

Come visit me, Miak the Swamp Thing.

I am trying to get mommy to put up our Christmas Tree! She is so very busy though, she is a full time student and she has a huge paper to do! We yell at her everyday to sign on here check on our friends! She is pretty good about it but sometimes she is just too busy. I don't know how she does it all. Today Ridley and I had oatmeal!!! I like to throw it at mommy and Ridley will only eat it if mommy feeds it to her! Here's a vote!! Love Cooper

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

  Hi from Tiki
Hi, Miak! Mom isn't here much anymore. She says her computer's possessed, whatever that means. So she had a lot of trouble getting online to places. How did you get a name like "Swamp Thing?" Our humans have the strangest senses of humor, don't they? Oh well, we love them anyway, huh? Thanks for visiting me!

Come visit me, Freddy, Callie & Tiki.

  Tweety needs your votes for her poem. Her foot had to be amputated Feb. 26th due to the main blood supply being cut in her leg. We had to separate her from her cage mate. I wanted to get her a big cage to move (fly around) in and after paying 258.00 for her leg to become amputated we could not afford to buy her the cage of her dreams. We notice that she flies a little to get around her cage and can defiantly use a bigger one. Thank you; please visit her web site at

Come visit me, Tweety, Frosty and Ringo.

  Hey Miak!
Just stopping by to give you a vote and visiting all the other jendays on birdchannel today. I too am very possessive of my mommy, but I love everybody. I just act like I want to attack when I'm snuggling with her because I don't want anyone to take me away from her. I love kisses from everyone though and especially love destroying my daddy's baseball cap, it's my favorite thing to shred... and he's pretty cool, because he lets me do it. Jamie

Come visit me, Jamie, Twinkie - Pastel-Faced Lutino, Skittles, Carley & Jessie.

  Hi Miak
Thanks for visiting me and Burgin. I am writting for Burg cause you know he can not see. I help him a lot to find his way back to his perch if he falls off.
Tell your Mom I am so sorry she lost her little friend. It is always so sad when we lose one of our flock. We lost a Sparrow a couple months ago. We have a new one now though. Mom told everyone that P2 had passed away and this lady wrote to mom and asked her to adopt a new one. This one's name is LuLu.
You got a vote from..
Hippie Boy

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

  You are very cute!! I like everybody. But my brother puggy (a rabbit) only likes certain people and perfers mom over them all. He's finally warming up to daddy but when mom first brought him home he hated him. :)

Come visit me, Sir Morgan & Samuel.

  Hi Miak
Thanks for the visit. And Yeah I am a lucky bird. I come from "My Pet World" in West. Boylston, Mass, Brians pet shop. He use to be at the old worcester flea market before it burnt down then he was near walmart in West Boylston then he moved closer to highway ramp for 95 in west. Boylston. So that is where Zazoo is from :) I felt so bad for Brian, he really cares about his birds at his pet shop :)

AND YES My zazoo makes my day always. And yours is so cute too. :)

  HI Miak the swamp thing
HI Welcome to the site. You are a cute. Sounds like you did the right thing, sometimes certain species are just not for everyone. It happened to me too, A parrot I had a few years ago, a kind that just did not work out for me and my amazon, so I found him a good home too. What counts is finding a good home.

And second, We moved down here to Florida a few years ago and guess from where???? YES WORCESTER MASS, hahah I saw the town on the list hhahah Small world. Me and Zazoo lived near burncoat & lincoln st.area before moving down here. We also lived in Spencer , and Holden :) Small world. We got sick of the cold and high cost of living up there, other than that we miss our friends up there, they love visiting us down here Now :)
