June 25, 2005 was the day of our wedding. During the reception, with a smile on their faces, Mr. and Mrs. Anderson told us that they have a very special wedding gift, but he was still in an egg. We both were very excited, but since I had to find homes for my original birds because I was going away to college, I was worried that my heart was not yet ready or worthy of a parrot to call my own again. We got the phone call around three months later that the baby was ready. On the ride there, I was very nervous; this would be the first bird I have owned in close to seven years! I turned to Tamara to ask her, “What should we name him?” Without hesitation, she said, “BeBe!” I never imagined myself as a “Lovebird Person”, but as soon as I saw BeBe, I knew he was our baby. BeBe looked just like a baby Amazon Parrot who never quite grew up. He sat on the bottom of his cage looking like a child at day care waiting for Mommy and Daddy to pick him up, and here we were. While Mr. Anderson gently placed his hand under BeBe’s feet, my heart filled with compassion. He placed him in my hand and immediately BeBe lowered his head asking me to preen him. I almost cried, but my joy overrode my tears.
Mr. Anderson then told us the story of how BeBe actually had died because he got very cold one night. His fragile body literally shut down as the light left his eyes, his organs stopped pumping, and his excrements were as black as death. However, there is a force much stronger than the shackles of death, and that is love. With BeBe’s determination to live and Mr. Anderson lovingly nursing him back to health, death was forced to release its hold on his life. I knew that Mr. Anderson spent so much time and effort on this little miracle, so I asked him, “Are you sure that you want to give him to us?” He assured us by saying, “He was always yours; even when he was just an egg. He’s our wedding present to you and Tamara. ” Those were the words that sealed our contract and friendship. I handed BeBe to his new Mommy, and she held him in her coat all the way home. While his little head was gently falling asleep on her chest, BeBe was serenaded by the music of her heart beating just for him. While I drove, I knew Tamara and I were no longer a couple, but a family.

Hi! My name is BeBe

I am a Peach-Faced Lovebird from Cary, NC.

Sugar Kisses, Chickn' Nugget,
Baby Punk, "The Beebsters!"
(1st Place Top Bench Winner of the African Lovebird Society's Pet Contest.)


9 years old   M

Peach-Faced Lovebird

crazy corn, baby food, greenbeans, and noodles!

hide and peek ball, mommy's hair, the shower, the other birds' playgrounds, and fast asleep in daddy's hand.

when mommy and daddy play with my sissys, Evee and Angel, instead of me. >:(

"That they show unconditional love to me; even when I am a poop head!"

I have one of the most outgoing personalities of any lovebird. Even in a room full of larger birds, I stand out in the crowd (flock). I not only love attention, I demand it! I'm the type of bird who breaks the mold. Funny people say I'm a cute little birdie, but don't they know I'm really an amazon in a lovebird's body! Also, mommy and daddy say that I have changed their lives forever. I don't know what that means, but it sounds pretty good..

"If I'm in the room, you know it!"

  Hello from the Oklahoma Gang
Good Morning, St. Patrick here, we made it through the tornado watches and warnings last night and now it is cold and snow is on the way, they say.. Hope you are warm and happy. I laid down the BOTW crown for Queen Daisy and I am ready to present to you the friends that inspired my Limerick for Today, Angel & Dusty (Meyers parrots from Derry, NH. ) LIMERICK OF THE DAY: ............. ............. ....Their aptitude for fun is contagious. ............. ......................... Their behavior can be quite outrageous. ..... ............. ............... Dusty coos, "Come on, Hon," ............. ............. ............. ........."Angel, let's have some fun!" ............. .................... Then they dive bomb the little finch cages! ... ..... .. Please remember to stop by my flockmates too. Love and hugs galore...Patrick. .....PS......We have been without electricity all morning. About 8:30 am the wind blew a tree down onto the power lines

  Hi Bebe! It is so nice to meet other lovebird friends! You remind me of my Cockatoo sister, Snuggies. She loves attention and demands it, too! But that silly 'too is scared of me! It is so funny.

  Hi!
BeBe! How are you! What a wonderful story and what a wonderful family! I get annoyed too when Mommy plays with Baby and not with me...I'm super glad that you pulled through, one of the big reasons they call us lovebirds because that's what we do! We Love!!! and snuggle; but I prefer Lovebird over Snugglebird! Always - Cookie

  Hi Bebe!
Thanks for visiting me. What a wonderful story of how you met your parents. It made me teary-eyed. We are definitely very lucky to have such great parents and lives! You sound very spoiled too. I also feel I'm a big parrot stuck in a little bird's body. If I could only talk! Hmmm... poor mommy and daddy. I would never shut up. All of you are awesome. Birdie kisses, Boxie :)

Come visit me, Minnie White, Leelers Redcheeks & Boxcar Bird.

  You could be my Twin
I can't believe how much you look like me! You could be my twin, but I am almost 3 years old (Aug).

Do you like bells and balls as much as I do? I love to throw them around the bottom of my cage or pick them up with my beak and bang them up and down. It's a good thing Mom keeps a good supply for me. I love it when she brings me to the couch with a couple of them and we push them back and forth - I get so excited that I end up pushing them off of the couch and Mom ends up chasing me and them all over the floor! I have her trained real well.

Come visit me, Gerry, Saphira & Toby.
