Hi! My name is In memory of: Bailey (02/17/2010)

I am a Budgerigar from Cincinnati, OH.

Bail-bail, cutie-pie, and wild guy.

10 years old   M


Lettuce! (YUM!!)

The bathroom and with Sprite!

The dogs and cats.

"I want my owners to know that I'm fine now that I'm with Sprite up in heaven. I love you guys with all my little feathered heart."

Singing to my older brother Sprite and swinging on his swing..

Rub my back and I'll cooperate. If not... then it's time to play TAG!! - Bailey.

  Hello ?Bailey
Today I thought I would introduce myself and set the 'stage'. For my campaign for BOTM I would like to consider the history of the Castle, where all BOTM and BOTD reside. I have asked Polly to provide some atmosphere by playing minstrel. He will accompany me on his lute.
“Hey Zippy, its a banjo”
“Polly, what about your guitar?”
“I broke my last one at the Western Milonga when I was 'El Kabong'”
“Don't you at least have a mandolin? It would be a little closer to what I was thinking.”
Polly shakes his head.
“O.K., with background music on a banjo, I will attempt to narrate some history.”
Way, way, way back in time, our dear friend Kelly *v* became BOTW (Sept. 2008). On the last day of her reign, Kelly threw a party. BOTW Kelly *v* issued invitations to a Masquerade. Kiddo showed up as a knight. Kelly's skinmom made her a beaded crown which she wore for her pictures. Thereby was the custom of wearing crowns instituted. Upon her coronation as BOTM, (Oct. 2008), she declared the party to be at the castle. And behold, in the magic that is of BC, a castle appeared. And then did Queen Kelly's many friends party.

Many thanks to Kelly *v* Miss SweetPepper pointed out to me that many NEW to BC birds do not know what is going on with B(ird)O(f)T(he)D(ay)/BOTD and B(ird)O(f)T(he)M(onth)/BOTM.
The BOTD is the bird with the most votes in one day. The day following the votes, that bird has its profile picture in the Bird of the Day spot on the right side bar. The 'account' also receives 1000 points.
Now the BOTM is the bird with the most for a whole month. The 'account' receives 10,000 points. To see the BOTM, go to the Bird Eclub on the left side bar. Scroll past the Birdie Quiz to the next set of tabs. On the very right is Top Bird. Click there and you will find the BOTM. Click on the name, and you will get to that bird's page, and you can find out what has been happening in the castle. The birds on BC honor our BOTM by referring to the bird as King or Queen for the month of their reign. The castle is in our imagination, although a page is being set up, #239094 (#234862 not active in 64 days as of 7/29/12).
There has been a campaign for BOTM. The month prior to the honor, the bird running, visits as many birds as the campaigner is able, soliciting votes. Recently the campaigns have had a theme.
Every day, the castle is the residence of the BOTD along with that month's BOTM.
A piece of history is that back a few years ago there was BOTW (Bird of the Week) instead of BOTD. So you will find BOTW awards in the award section of pages.
ANOTHER point of interest is that although you only get points for 1 vote and 1 blog per day, you may vote (for different birds) AND blog multiple times in one day.
Hope this is helpful, and please VOTE 4 ME.

  Hello Bailey, So your favorite treat is lettuce. Mom can get me to eat that everyonce in a while. I usually dont eat it though unless she takes a bite of it first and then gives it too me. If she puts it in my bowl i wont eat it. I dont really eat anything that is green. I tend to like orange and purple things. Carrots, orangees, grapes. Even with my pellets. i eat the orange and purple colored ones more then any other color. There are always green ones left in the dish. Don't know why I dont like eating the color green too much. maybe it's because I am so green. hmmm.

Come visit me, Chester.

  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.

  I've never been to new jersey but mom has a few times. She was never there for very long though. It's stupid how quakers aren't allowed in a lot of states. It made sense before when they were bringing in a bunch of wild ones. Cause they were adapted to living in the wild so if they escaped that could cause problems. I think they should just set it up differently. Have them registered or something, but not banned. But that's just me. I'm glad Sprite is treating you so well and showing you around. He's such a good bird.

Come visit me, Chester.

  Hey Bailey. Are you adjusting well to your new home? Are Paddy and Sprite treating you well? You are such a pretty bird. Do you know what your favorite treats are yet? Make sure you stay warm up there with that snow. Hope you dont get too much ice.

Come visit me, Chester.

I blogged Sprte and brothers were mentioned so I had to come check them out. I only have a sister right now, but mom and dad are going to get a blue Quaker for my brother. So there will be two Sprites with blue Quaker brothers. You have a very nice name too. - Sprite

Come visit me, Hedwig, Sunshine, Sprite, Luna, Snowball & Saphira.

Hi Bailey, My name is Bailey too. I'm a Sun Conure. You're a very cute budgie. How did you like the fair?

Come visit me, Bailey.

  I'm so glad to hear that your cage is right next to Sprites. He must really like that. My mom said that up where her mom lives they have over 2 feet of snow! Boy am I glad we moved down here before the snow came. It was a late winter so we made it out in time. The sun finally came out down here. It's been cloudy and rainy for weeks. And it has been cold. Maybe not as cold up there but we dont have heat in our house or insulation so when it's cold down here it's cold in the house. Another vote for you my friend. Oh yeah and mom said she likes your name.

Come visit me, Chester.
