We met at a breeder. She picked me out from several clutches. I was outgoing and making lots of cute noises, so she instantly fell in love with me.. Awards

Hi! My name is Hector

I am an African Grey from Iowa City, IA.

Hector Bobector, Little Man

African Grey

apple, raspberries, nuts

I have a play tree on every floor of the house, so I love to hang on those. Also, my cage has a playtop which I love because I can play "King of the Playtop." But my favorite thing is to run back and forth on top of the sofa and chew my blanket.

My cousin Harrietta (Harry, for short), another African Grey, picks on me. It makes me a little stressed out.

She loves to whistle with me and she lets me sit on her shoulder, which is my favorite. Also, I love when she cuddles my neck and shoulders. Also, I fly over to her when she is studying and she lets me chew the caps on her highlighters.

I shuffle my right talon back and forth when I want attention, like a bull that is about to charge..

  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.

  Tuki says Hi!
A quick note from a friend who lives south of you in Missouri. Love your picture. You are a pretty bird. I have a play tree on the screened in porch, but it is too chilly now to enjoy it. Can't wait for spring! Tuki

Come visit me, Tuki.

  Hello Hector
Hi Hector,
I like your picture. Are you trying to look at where your ancestors are from on the globe? I'm a grey as well and a year old. I say you have a nice beak.

Come visit me, Seymour.
