Fate and a curiosity about the Grey Parrots. A visit to a bird fair, a sweet baby Grey Bird that snuggled under the neck of my tee shirt making the most adorable whimpering sounds, he was so afraid of all the noise and clung to me like his life depended upon me taking him home. He stole my heart and continues to do so every day with his amazing sweet loving personality. His addition to our flock has made us complete. He and Romeo have become very good friends after a rough start...

Hi! My name is ~Rusty~

I am a Congo African Grey from Oakland, TN.

Rusty, REB, Rustybutt, Rus Ed, Mom's Little Angel

7 years old   M

Congo African Grey

I like popcorn, pine nuts and this white cheddar cheese Mom gives me occasionally. A new favorite are Garbanzo beans (chick peas) My regular diet consist of Zupreem pellets, lot's of fresh veggies, my favorites are sugar snap peas, carrots, broccoli, corn, peas, fruits and nuts and birdy bread..

My cargo net that Arthur and Dad sent me...I love it! Mom hung it from the ceiling and now she has to get a step ladder to get me down...Also our new Outside Aviary that Romeo and I go to almost every day when the weather is nice...

Not having food in my bowl.
Anyone other than Mommy trying to hold me, that's a big no no!


She loves me beyond anything I've ever known, she feeds me all kinds of healthy foods that I devour, and spends a lot of time with me. I'm teaching her new things everyday, and she loves my beaky kisses that I give freely anytime she wants them..She's home with us almost all the time and I really like that. I love to lay my head on her shoulder as she rubs my head and I snuggle under a blanket in her lap when we have our special time together every night...She recently had her son build an outside Aviary for us, it's my favorite place to be. I've also become very attached to the big white bird that lives here and we spend our days playing, exploring all the really cool things uncle Chuck send us, we especially like our cargo net he gave us and we spend most of our time playing on that..



Thank You Mr. Chuck my guardian Angel for giving my Mom the desire to know what it's like to have a Grey parrot in her home, she will either love you for that or come looking for you with a gun...lol


I sneak into Romeo's cage after I've had my meal and rummage through his bowl to find what's left..I always say bye bye to company when they leave, it's the proper thing to do..
I shake my head back and forth when Mommy plays handies with me, she loves to scratch under my wings but I push her hand away with my beak, if she persist I'll bite her..but not to hard..Mom taught me to sing the Tennessee Good Old Rocky Top Song, I have a video on BC singing it.heehe..When Mom tries to video me I clam up, but I will pose for pictures.
I like to swing upside down on my boing chatting the entire time. I've learned to say lot's of things, like talking to Gabby our dog, I will tell her to come'ere, sit, lay down, get the ball, and good girl. I can squawk like my big brother Romeo the Too, that drives Mom crazy..I can also scream like CoCo and whistle like the Tiels. I tell Mom when
I'm hungry and ready to go outside. I love being outside in our Aviary, it's big and I have lots of perches and boings to play on. I don't like being on the floor and if I fall I will run back to my cage and climb back up. I love garbanzo beans, carrots, sugar peas,and broccoli, grapes, apples and most any kind of nuts. Popcorn is good to and I make a big mess eating it..Romeo and I are best friends as long as he's not trying to aggravate me with a toy in his beak which he often does..I don't like strangers to touch me, I only trust my Mommy.
None of these are really quirky for a grey but that's me...

  Good Sunday Morning Rus Ed-from your Ms LaLo Lee
...I know we do not communicate much these days, but I do not love you any less! You are maybe the most handsome Grey Parrot on BC, to include Art and Saber, and that is saying a lot! As is usually the case, our dad fell asleep while waiting for the Milonga to start, he did however recover long enough to say hello to every birdie! Congrats to all the winners in the picture contests, they were all great and every birdie seemed to be having a great time! Many thanks to Kiddo and his staff for making it fun for all of us, and thanks for inviting us Dallas'! We have a simple Sunday planned, our favorite kind! We are praying for our dear aunt Eileen for a speedy recovery from the nasty shingles, give our love to all in your happy home, we'll see ya all tomorrow...

Forever love from Jenny, Angel Christy, Ms LaLo Lee, Ziggy, & our daddy

  Congratulations on BOTD Rusty
Hi fellow adventurers, Mikey D here with our Friday post on the trek across the USA with our special cargo. With BC actin' funny again, I sure hope we make it there safely. With Sweetpepper and Kacey's message about Black Bart, the whole future sure looks dark and ominous. Many of ya will recall Black Bart and his gang of thugs from our Cattle Drive last year. HE sure tried his darnedest to side-swipe us cow-birdies, but thanks to Jenny-Lynn and her group of scouts, his plans were squashed like a bug, and the cattle arrived safely in Wyoming.
"Kacey, can ya please go round up the Drivers and Carporals, we best be havin' us a meetin' and make some plans so's we can make it to California safe and sound."
"Sure Boss, be right back." Kacey races off to gather everybirdie for the meeting, while Mikey D paces anxiously. " I wonder what we can do to foil his plans?"
" What's up Boss?" Pearl asks as he and Silver hurry to join him outside the Livery.
"Black Bart" is all Mikey D can reply, as he thinks of a plan for action.
It isn't very long before all have gathered back together, a worried look on every face. A whisper fills the air as the concerned birds try to figure out what's happened.
Mikey D stops suddenly, and jumps onto the back of the nearest wagon so everybirdie can see and hear him better. He looks intently at his friends, he feels a sense of happiness to be with such brave, heroic birds, when faced with such a big problem as Black Bart. He shutters, then slowly he begins to explain what Sweetpepper and Kacey's search has exposed.
"Well, I hate to bring us bad news, but indeed bad news it is. Our Night riders, while watchin' over the remuda outside of town have uncovered Black Bart and his gang of hoodlums. The BIRD has sent back word, that Black Bart has set his eyes upon our wagon train and even now is makin' plans to ambush us along the trail. Accordin' to the BIRD he will attack somewhere between here, in Santa Fe and Abiquiru where we pick up the Old Spanish Trail. If the opportunity fails for him, we will be at his mercy as we begin to travel through hostile and formidable territory." Mikey D stops to allow the news to sink in, before finishing. "we will have to drive hard, every-bird on alert, guns at the ready."
It remains quiet for a few minutes, then a cheer rises from the gathered travelers. " We will beat him at his own game once more!" the BC friends high four one another as they agree to stand together against Black Bart and his thugs, or anybirdie else who might mistakenly think they can steal their precious supplies destined for needy birds in the sunny south-west. Mikey D sighs a relieved sigh as he smiles to himself. These are brave and fearless birds he has along with him on this dangerous trip.
"Ok, let's hitch up and get movin', we want to cover as much distance as possible by sun down.
See ya tomorrow, MIKEY D

Come visit me, MIKEY D, Steppin' back in history for BOTM April, birdie haven park, ANGEL CHUEY--April 26/15, sweetpea, thanks for botd, zoey & cricket & nakita.
