Sprite is my brother's bird. My brother got sprite after his 8th birthday because I had a budgie called snowy and she was one of the sweetest birds out there. (Sprite was devastated when she died.)

Unfortunately, on June 5 of 2009 he died of what we think was cancer. He will be greatly missed by my family and myself. :(

Hi! My name is In memory of: Sprite (07/05/09)

I am a Budgerigar from Cincinnati, OH.

Spritey, Tennis ball, LemonLime

14 years old   M


Seeds, lettuce, and the ocasional millet spray. (We've tried fruits, but he just runs away!)

His cage, Paddy's cage, Bailey's cage, & the bathroom.

Just about everything! (Except perching on a finger or shoulder, Paddy, Bailey, and his cage.)

I love it when my owner gives me a belly rub, but my back is way off limits! I also love it when I get my baths in the sink. I get soaking wet and make my owner wet too, by shaking off and splashing.

Chirdling, going berserk when out of his cage, & seek shelter from the dogs & cats behind his younger brother, Paddy..

"Fly AWAY!!!!!" - Sprite
(You will be greatly missed.)

  Hello friend, How have you been. Things down here are going good. It's raining and kinda storming right now, but hopefully it will pass soon. It still hot out though. My parents are going to get an Umbrella Cockatoo, but it wont be till next year probably. They want to move out of this place first, and we are here until the end of november.

Come visit me, Chester.

  Oh my goodness. Good thing Bailey can be used as a girl or boys name haha. Sometimes when the sun is out the ocean looks a pretty blue color, but for the most part it's more of a brownish color. But it all depends on what area you are in. I haven't been down by it in a while though. Your friend Chester.

Come visit me, Chester.

  Things are going well down here but it would be nice if it warmed up some. I hate it when it's cold! Can you believe it we have had freeze warnings the past two nights! This is New Orleans. I thought we moved away from all that. I've only been down here for 2 1/2 months and all ready it's made me a whimp to the cold. Mom said it's a different cold then up in ny though. With the gulf being right there it's a really damp cold. And the wind makes it even colder.

  Hey Sprite. How is everything going with you? Are you and Bailey getting along well? Paddy told me you have snow and are getting more. I sure dont miss the snow. Mom said she is taking a trip back up to ny the begining of march. She's not looking forward to seeing the snow. She's not taking me with her. She told me it would be too cold traveling from the airport to the house. I didn't want to go anyways. It's warm ehre. Why would i want to go where it is cold and there is snow on the ground. Is she crazy?!

  Hi there
Dropped by to give you a vote. Oh and tell Bailey that I love Disney movies. I forgot to put it in my message to her. Mom puts them on for me sometimes. I like a Bug's Life cause I can whistle along to that one. I also like Robin Hood. I try to whistle to that one too. I like to listen to opera too though. So mom will put that on when she leaves or if shes going to be upstairs for a while. Sometimes she will put on classical music for me. It calms me down. when she's in the room with me though she will put on different kinds of music and sing to me and try to get me to dance. Did I mention she can't sing or dance haha. How does she expect me to.

Come visit me, Chester.

  Yes I do get Birdtalk. The mail is weird done here still though So I missed the one with the amazon on the cover. I haven't gotten my wings done since mom rescued me. My last owner did it her self. She was going to do it for mom and then mom saw the scissors she used. They were really big rusty ones. She said she couldnt find her normal ones. Mom thinks those were the normal ones. She is going to have it done by a guy that owns a bird store down here. I'm not to the point yet where I will let her and she'd rather me be mad at someone else haha. As for the nails, i have a perch that does a pretty good job. we are going to go see paddy and bailey and give them each a vote. Imus and Josie will look for the dogs.

Come visit me, Chester.

  Hi Sprite
I forgot to tell Paddy that Greater Vasa Parrots are from Madagascar, and they are not very common. The most Primitive of Parrots. They are really cool. You can do a search, and get some neat info on them...but not a whole lot, lol. Voted for you, too, sweet budgie

  Bird talk?
I think I must have missed where you asked about bird talk. Refresh my memory please. Mom is going to a bird fair here in new orleans (well Westwego) in March. She's never been to one so she's really excited. How close are you to Cincinatti? I have family that lives in New Richmond Ohio. I almost moved there two years ago. I'm very sorry to hear about how snowy passed. Mom said she used to have a ringneck growing up. His name was Henry. She misses him very much. As for the stinky dogs. To answer your question YES. and they smell horrible. almost knocks me off my perch.

  Hi Sprite
Mom changed my name. I am now known as Chester (I picked it out). They tried all sorts of names. I liked the sound of this one when mom said it. I would like to see your dogs. Do they have pages on dogchannel? Imus and Josie do. Imus was even the dog of the day on there. Don't know how that one happened. If they dont have pages you should tell your mom to put them on there. I want a picture of Josie on my page. mom just has to try to get a good picture. Hows the weather in Ohio? It's been raining her forever it seems. Today the sun came out somewhat. I'm hopeing it will come out a little more so I can have my storm shutters opened. Mom said it's too cold without the sun though. I gave you a vote today. Let me know if you get those pictures added to your page.

Come visit me, Chester.

I dont know why they scare me. I think it's just cause they are new. And when they come into the house they usually just start talking right away and dont even say hi to me first. When they are walking by the house i just like to whistle at them. They always look around to see where it came from, it's so funny! The dog in the picture is Imus. He's the German Shorthair Pointer. He's the one i think wants to eat me. Mom didnt put a picture of josie on there yet cause she's always laying in the sun when she lays in front of my cage and the sun messes the picture up. Oh and I think all birds rule! hehe. I just think they are some of the smartest creatures on this planet. I don't see dogs making sounds like the phone ringing, or car alarms haha. (those are the new sounds i am trying)

Come visit me, Chester.

Most of the time when mom plays music I just sit and watch her. She tries to get me to dance. She's not much of a dancer and either am I. I would like to keep it that way. She tries telling me that there isn't anyone that can see me dance. She must have forgotten i'm sitting infront of a huge window so anyone on the street can see me. If she plays opera i can't seem to stay awake haha. It puts me right to sleep or calms me down a whole lot. The other day though she played a blues cd. Some guy named Sonny Landreth. I couldn't stop whistleing along. It must have been the guitar or something. That was the first time she played music that i really enjoyed. She's tried everything too. Must be i'm a blues man. haha. Well have a good day today. See ya soon.

  Favorite Toy
Hi Sprite, one of my favorite toys, which is really cheap, is a cork (like from a bottle of wine). Mom gets them from her family & friends. She tells me she can't drink wine as fast as I go through them. :-) I also like the little wooden boxes that you get from Michaels - I like to chew on them. That's just a couple of my favorites - in other words, I LOVE my toys! Yes, I live with six cats, yes six. I have a favorite which I really love, and he loves me. You can see a picture of me & him kissing on my page. His name is Moses. I'm also giving you a vote to start your week!

Come visit me, Poco, Pico, Bindi - R.I.P. ♥ & Skittles - R.I.P. ♥.

  Hi Sprite ~
I visited with Paddy & thought I would visit Paddy's sibbling & also give you a vote. I like to play on my back & don't mind Mom rubbing my tummy either. I have a picture of me on my back on my page. Mom is always telling me I play like a kitten. I bet you were devastated when Snowy died. I'm glad you have Paddy for a brother!

  Dog Problems
Mom hasn't let me out of the cage with the dogs in the room yet cause Imus looks like he wants to eat me. He points at me and stuff haha. He is growing less interested in me now though. Josie is a good dog though. She just lays in front of my cage when its sunny, or across the room in the chair. I try getting her attention sometimes but she just doesn't care. About those feathers though. Yes i do do that. Dad doesn't like it though. He keeps saying something about his nose or something. I dont understand. I think he's just making excuses not to be around me. I have a mirror in my cage too, but i'm not sure if i like it just yet. What songs do you sing?

Come visit me, Chester.

  Alone Time
My mom has no idea what I do when I'm alone yet. haha. She hears me whistle at people that walk by the house or something. Sometimes she thinks it sounds like I whisper, but she thinks I just sleep or eat. I never had toys before I came to my moms so I dont know how to play with them yet. Mom tries really hard to make them seem interesting but i just dont understand them. I've gotten used to them being in my cage but that's as far as I got. It's funny watching mom play with them though. It sounds like it is a lot of fun to have a buddy. Do you have lots of toys that you play with, or just one that is your favorite?

  Hello Sprite!
I'm Paddys new friend Pete the amazon. I wanted to fly by and say hello to you too! It's a good thing you like getting your baths. I hate bathtime. I'm trying really hard to like it though. My old owner told my mom that i love showers and stuff. But anytime i see water comeing out of the sink or anything i fly away from it. when i can't fly from it i scream. Mom thinks that i really didnt like it and my old owner just thought that i did. I get the spray bottle now with some bath stuff that makes me not feel so itchy but i still protest it some. Well fly by and see me sometime. You pal Pete.

Come visit me, Chester.
