Someone was selling him in our building for $20 (cage, food, and toys). I was running out to see a movie with my sister and ran into the lady with the bird cage in hand. It was love at first sight! I bought him and we've been together ever since. I was his third (and last) guardian....a forever home..

Hi! My name is Gilbert

I am a Budgerigar from Toronto, AE.

Broadway Budgie-wudgie, Budg-Taro, and Gil-lee-bert!

9 years old   M

Budgerigar

Green Apple, Millet Spray, Spinach, broccoli, and Celery.

In the bathroom in front of the mirror. Or on Lisa's shoulder---I have a major crush on her!

I only like to eat veggies and fruits that are Green!---like me!

My owner spoils me rotten! I live in the biggest cage imaginable with all the toys and mirrors I could ever desire. Every night when he gets home from work, I come out for a fly, and a treat---usually Green Apple!

I LOVE water. Anytime I hear a tap running I sing and chatter like crazy! And I always take a bath in either my owner's hand underneath the tap or in my very own tupperware container.

At night-time, I like my stomach rubbed just before I am completely covered in my favourite blanket.
.

I've never met a mirror I didn't like!.

  Hi lets be birdie friends; VOTE FOR MAXI BOTW
Hi everyone, SweetPepper here. There is a campaign being run for my brother tiel Maxi for BOTW. He is 15 1/2yrs old and has never won anything in his entire birdie life. My sister Kacey and I have won contests and even had our pictures published in magazines. We would love it for Maxi to win something. He is a senior bird and one never knows how long a senior bird will live. He is in good health but so was my brother Digger and he died suddenly without warning. So if everyone could stop in to his page each and everyday and vote for him I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you, SweetPepper and Kacey

  hey Gilbert Grape :)
I am leaving Bird Channel. Julia and Gloria are now both dead, and Angela was too lonely to be by herself, so we gave her to a pet store. it's too hard to keep coming onto bird channel and see the pictures of my babies that are gone, so i'm leaving. i wish you much happiness, and it was a pleasure knowing you. God Bless.

Valorie, Charlotte, NC.

  Hi from Woof and Meow
Thanks for your vote, Gilbert. Caiques are lively, funny birds. They're not called the clowns of the parrot world for nothing. They are very social, love meeting new people, will go to anyone, and will often play tricks for you, like playing hide and seek. Budgies are really cute too! One of my nieces has a budgie and another has a cocktail. We're just one big bird family!

Come visit me, Woof and Meow.

As a friend of Skittles I thought you would want to know that the Flock has lost a precious friend. Please visit her page and flood her with votes so that she might be honored as BOTW in loving memory from all her friends. Thank you so much...from Rainbow, friend of Skittles.

  Cat Friend
Hi Gilbert, the cat in the picture is Moses - who I absolutely adore. I live with six cats and none have shown any agression, but like you said there is strict supervision when we're near. The other cats are okay, but Moses is my favorite! There is a couple that like to lay near my cage too. They were very curious when I moved in, but now I'm just part of the family! I can call them for dinner and they come. Sometimes I call them at night (after dinner)and here they come. So mom gives them some treats ~ so I think I won them over because they get extra treats. :-) Have a good weekend! Your friend, Skittles

  Lucky You
Gilbert, my mom is in awe ~ one of the places she hopes to visit one day is Australia. I bet it was cool seeing wild lories flying everywhere! And to think, one landed on you! Thank you for the compliment! Mom is partial to Budgies because that was her first bird (which was a long time ago). Here's you a vote, Budgie-wudgie! Have a great weekend!

You made me blush, Gilbert!!! :) Thanks for coming to visit. I do feel so lucky to have found my Mom & my Grandma. I love my home so much, and they spoil me rotten. I even love my kitties too! They pretty much ignore me, though, except for one who likes to sit on my Mom's lap when I'm on her shoulder & purr to me. My Mom loves the picture of you & your best friend! Do you get along with your kitty? I hope you're having a wonderful day!!! ♥

  Hi
Thanks for visiting Monty Mae and me. Good to hear that you have been doing a lot of reading/research before getting a new African Grey flock member. I love birds, parrots in particular and CAGs especially. You asked if I had any advice. I guess the first would be to find out as much as you can about the conditions the baby bird has been brought up in before you select one. A lot of 'experts' believe that the first 14 to 16 weeks of the baby birds life can have a big impact on the rest of it's live. Things to ask about would be how the bird was hand fed, is it fully weaned and how was it weaned. How was it socailised? Did the baby have the company of other birds and how much time during each day did the baby spend in human company where it was being held by or had interaction with the humans? Also, if you can, try and spend time with the baby before you select one. That way you can judge first hand how well socailised the bird is and just like with Gilbert, you will find love at first sight. Hope this helps. Come visit us again. T and MM

Come visit me, Caden - is my name, exploring is my game & Monty Mae - BOTD and Hatchday girl! Thx u.

You're adorable! we're glad you got a loving, forever home. It's funny that you love food that's green, I love anything that's yellow, like me. I also love to walk on the laptop keyboard (even though i get stuck sometimes) and stick my face in mom's water cup. I'm a bit nosey. -Sammy

You're so cute! I'm so glad that you found a forever home! Imagine, selling your bird for $20...geez! But lucky for your owner, I suppose! Your kittie is very pretty too!

  Thank you so much Gilbert. My mom has spent alot of time at the pet store and many returns (The manger told my mom to buy what ever I need and if it don't work take it back. She has deffently done alot of that.) When I was first injured there were no web sites on how to adapt a cage for an injured bird so my mom thought it would be helpful to have. Thanky again. I am so happy to have good birdie friends.

  Hi Gilbert you are a pretty bird we use to have one like you.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, and after paying 258.00 for her leg to become amputated we could afford to buy her a big enough cage to get around in. 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.
