Hi! My name is Buckwheat

I am an African Grey from Clearwater, FL.

Buckman ... that's a name he came up with

21 years old   M

African Grey

Granny Smith Apples and chicken wings.

On the back of the kitchen chairs.

When there is food around and I'm not getting any.

She gives me kisses and all the food I need.

I give orders to the dogs, answer the phone and belch after eating. When I'm told I'm a pig, I squeal like a pig...then laugh..

I am king of the house!.

  Hi Buckwheat!
It is nice to hear from you. You are really pretty. I really like your name.
I was going through and reading everyones names it is fun to see what people come up with.
I like to yell at the dogs here too.
My mom is always telling the one to get back and go away from my cage, so now I tell him.
The other dog is a barker so I like to bark and tell her to stop. Here are some recordings my mom made of me if you are interested. http://artofhollyhill.com/links.html .
My sister Mica is only 6 months old but she is starting to learn some of the things I say. I'm still kind of jellous of her. She's ok if she stays away from my areas. Well just wanted to say hi and put in a vote for you.

Come visit me, Mica & Mariah.

  HI BUCKWHEAT
Thanks for writting back! Yeah I think it is the Florida air! hee hee!
So have you or your parronts ever been to the Oldsmar flea market? Thats were my mom adopted me from.
Theres a store in there called Everything Birds and they have great prices on everything! My mom bought my brother Rocky, (who is Bird of the Month)a huge double macaw cage for $600 and anywhere else it would have cost $1200 so her prices are half of what they should be... I'm gonna be getting a new cage from there soon because I have Rocky's old cage and it's in pretty bad shape.
So where abouts do you live in Clearwater? We are on Pinehurst, off of Sunset and Hercules. Are you close?

Well I better get going. Stop back anytime, I love making new friends! Sorry I don't write back right away but my brother Rocky hogs the computer but I will write back..

Have a great day!!

Love,
Bobo xoxoxoxoxo V4U

  Hello Buckwheat!
Thanks for stopping in for a visit. Here is a big vote for you! Us African grays have to stick together. It is cool how you made up a name for yourself. I made up a name for Pedro when she first joined our flock. I didn't like her, so I started calling her "badro the bad birdie". I do call her Pedro now, but sometimes I go back to calling her Badro. Susan (femal eclectus) just joined our flock a few weeks. I have not decided on what I will call her yet. I know and say everyone in the family's names! Maybe I will be nice and call her Susan...or maybe I will make up some goofy name for her jus to annoy her and Mom!!! Fly on in for a visit any time!

  Hi!
Hi Buckwheat - wow, you're gorgeous! We all love your name too, and ordering the dogs around, hehehe! Keep those fur-faces in line for us, 'k?

Yes, I'll be forever grateful to Carys for taking me in and raising me to be big and strong. I don't come for visits 'cuz the grown-up crows have told me not to be TOO friendly with people. Can you believe that there are actually some humans who would hurt me?! I let her know that I'm still around and love her by "awk"ing at her when she's in my sight, and my adoptive momma says that that's just fine.

I'm a big boy now, and well on my way to being a beautiful adult crow. All thanks to Carys, and everyone that gave me the encouragement that I needed to survive. Cheers and awks!

Come visit me, Buddie & Chico 1990-2007.

  WELCOME TO THE BC
Guess what?? I live in Clearwater too!!!
I'm glad you are in a great forever home now and I hope we can be friends..
I love your silly habits! That must be funny hearing you burp after you eat.. I'm only 9 months old but I'm starting to talk alot now. My first words were "ow ow ow Bobo" because thats what my mom yells everytime I bite her. hee hee!! My newest thing I just started saying is "step up" I'm still doing alot of baby babbling but I'm learning....
Maybe we can meet someday and you can teach me how to burp! tee hee!!!

Well I better get going. I hope you'll stop by when you get a chance..
Have a great weekend and Happy Mothers Day to your mom!!

Love ya,
Bobo xoxoxoxoxoxo V4U
