Hi! My name is Rio

I am a Pacific Parrotlet from Union, NJ.

Little Baby

10 years old   M

Pacific Parrotlet

Berries & Popcorn

On the bed frame where I talk, crack my beak and fall asleep.

Having ruffeled feathers or hearing anything that rattles like a bottle full of pills or buttons.

Everything!!!!! There is nothing not to love about them!

Preening myself constantly - I have to look good for everyone!
I love to bite paper, whether it is paper towels, toilet paper or copy paper-that's the best!

Hi Rio! Well, my mom and her human son went to Birds I View like your mom suggested. She fell in love with the Maroon bellied Conure the girl who works there owns! Her name was Ginger and she gave kisses and was just adorable!!We have our names on a list for when they come in again..Thanks for the tip!! They didn't have any little birds as cute as you!

Come visit me, Buddy !!!, Little Bird & Gracie*.

  Hi Rio!
I'd love to be friends with you Rio. You are a very pretty bird. How old were you when you started talking? I was hatched in February and my mom thinks I'm trying very hard to talk. Mostly I sound out these sweet little chirps, but sometimes I get going and I'm giving somebody the 'what for' just mamma can't quite figure it out yet. Kweep in touch!

Come visit me, Jae Jae, Peepers, Yetti & Bonsai.

  PS from Turtle Bird
Actually, I can talk but most of what I say my people can't seem to understand (but I'm patient with them and have faith they'll catch on). Right now I can say my name, my Dad's name, and the name of their elderly cat, along with imitations of the phone, the microwave, the food timer, and any other noise that makes people run. When I call out "Bear!" the cat doesn't know who's calling him! This makes my Mom laugh so then I laugh too.

Come visit me, Turtle Bird.

  Rio, you're gorgeous!
Parrotlets are the absolute cutest parrots ever. My auntie has one named Miss Peanut, and boy does she get angry when her person spends too much time on the phone! She flies right over and bites her neck like a little beaky vampire! Miss Peanut has a chronic problem with ingrown feathers, and has to visit the vet regularly as a result... but that's why she wound up at a rescue, and then was adopted by her auntie who is really great and has a Timneh and a Jardine's. Even though the others are much larger, Miss Peanut holds her own! Thanks for coming to see me. Nice to meet you! PS It's nice that your beautiful blue eye patch goes with your human's eyes!

Come visit me, Turtle Bird.

  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.
