I was hatched at a breeders house. Mommy came to visit me every week until I was ready to come home. She finished my hand-feeding. She says I was always a really messy eater..

Hi! My name is Miko

I am a Cockatiel from Ashland, OR.

Bird Boy. Professor (because I lecture people, especially their feet). Little man, Tweet Heart, Freako, Tweako.

22 years old   M

Cockatiel

Millet, pasta, corn kernel or peas (actually shells them). Soft shelled pine nuts. Mom's birdie bread. Potato, spider plant (I have my own special one on the dinner table.)

On mom's shoulder, on mom's foot. I like to sit with people when they come over to visit.

Shoes, toes sometimes cause me to rant and rave.
Sister bird, Layla, the green-cheek conure is a pest. She chases me and is territorial.


She is devoted to me. I get lots of good, fresh, organic fruit and vegies. I love when mom serves pasta. My mom has always kept me safe so I am not afraid of anyone. I get to ride around on mom's shoulder more than any of the other birds. Mom says it's because I'm more trustworthy. I don't know what that word means, but it is a good word.

I whistle the theme to Star Trek the Next Generation. But, don't interrupt me when I do it. I'll give you a loud tweet to tell you to shut up!
I like to jump down from where ever I am and wander the floor.
I say good morning everyday when I wake up.
I like to play in the tea or canned food cupboard.
.

Millet is my friend..

  Hello from St. Patrick D'Bird
Hi, Patrick here with a vote for you. Yeah, this morning I was just waiting to jump up on Mom's shoulder and help feed the rest of the flock. Fortune and I both helped. Fortune squawed on about "crackers" a word I have never used (I don't like them) so I decided to let Mom know I could say it to. She was so proud of me.......WISH YOU A HAPPY WEEKEND, Please visit my fiblings too as I am blogging for us all.

  Hi
One of your flock came to visit me a while back but the channel would not let me blogg for a while which is why I did not get back to you sooner. My Mom and Dad are a way for a week and I am staying with friend Pat. Pat decided that it would be my 'summer camp'. Visit my blogg and read all about my adventures at Camp Sonewell. MM

I wasn't sure which bird to reply to, but Jack and I would like to thank you for vising him! I will definitely browse through your flock. That play gym on your first gallery picture looks like loads of fun.

Come visit me, Jack.

  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 www.1luckybird.com

Come visit me, Tweety, Frosty and Ringo.

  You are one handsome bird!
Hello! Thank you for leaving a blog. I am an important bird. An elder states bird... though Mama says we were #4 because her good friend is a web editor here and we had to test it to make sure it was a good thing. You are very talented... I can only somewhat whistle "Pretty Bird" and dance to "What's New Pussy Cat". Mama says I have horrible taste in music. I think that Tom Jones is great! But I also love ska and the Clash. She's proud of me for that.

Come visit me, Wilbur & Monsieur Dijon the Grey Poupon.

Thanks for the visit. Yep, upside down. I love to be that way. Dad calls me his Batbird. Hey, Dad taught me to do Ho-Ho-Ho like Santa so I am sure monkey noises for you wouldn't be any problem. Keep training Thanks again, Casper

  Hi Miko!
You look just like a cockatiel that lives with me (Pebbles). His name is Scooter and someone found him outside and brought him to the Wild Bird Center. They specialize in food for outside wild birds. Anyway my mom came in to buy wild bird seed and saw him and adopted him. He is very happy in his new home. I voted for you too!

Come visit me, Pebbles.

Doo Woop, Cool, Dad is good at getting the sheaths off too. I didn't know you are a published author. OUTSTANDING. Great to know some of us are getting some press. Dad loved the bathroom analogy. Said it's perfect to explain living in a small space with no escape or anything to occupy your mind. Yours in plush feathers, Casper. New photos below as of today.

  Hi Miko!
Glad to meet you! You sound like a really cool bird! Me too! Your mom visited my blog yesterday and said I was a lucky bird coz my mom found me! You sound so cute...especially when your "star wars" whistle gets interrupted! I grumble a lot, but not to my mom...coz she's perfect in my book! My mom has 2 cockatiels too. Their blogs aren't up yet. They're not as friendly as you and they're real "fraidy-birds". They don't come out of their cage unless mom rolls them into a "safe room". Me - I grumble...I say "why bother!...give ME the attention!" Maybe one day they'll be as friendly as you. I wouldn't have the patience that my mom has. Anyway, thanks for visiting. Us little guys have to stick together! Oh - I'll vote for YOU today! Laters, birdie hugs, Tiki!

Come visit me, Clyde, Tiki, Buddy, r.i.p. 8/20/08 & Bobbi.

Thanks for the visit. You're right, my Mom and Dad realy love us. they know love breeds love and trust. My Dad is very concerned with the treatment of us Parrot types cause he says we depend on our humans for everyhing. he does his best to educate anyone that seems to have an interest or ask questions about us when we're out. Love your hat:-) My Sister Hanibal has one of those. Dad put a photo of her showing off and it really shows her hat. Try a visit and see. thanks again and take care. Autumn

You're gorgeous! Your gray feathers look so smooth and neat. What a sharp guy your are. Thank you for your note on my webpage. There's a cockatiel that lives at my house; Tiki would love your manzanita tree. Shucks, I probably would too. You sound like quite a character; love the tale of your singing Star Trek and prefering NOT to be interupted. Aren't birds the greatest little entertainers!! Keep in touch! R

  Hello and welcome Miko, You are so pretty. I told Zazue that Poirot was the pest. Maybe you feel the same way? I can be pretty annoying to him at times though. Your manzanita tree looks like the one my mama made Poirot. I am leaving you a vote, Pringle
