We were looking for a big cage for a ringneck dove we had at the time. At this one pet store was a little blue bird like we'd never seen before. A friend of the owner had traded this 6 month old parrotlet for some kind of debt. The owner admitted being terrified of birds and handled them with thick leather gloves. She said the bird seemed tame but was a terrible biter. (I thought I'd bite you too if you tried to pick me up with leather gloves!)She was selling him cheap because she just wanted to get rid of him. She even admitted thinking about letting him go outside. We opened the cage and this tiny thing jumped on my finger. We bought him and a cage and have loved him since.
When we first bought him they told us he was a girl.With our three daugters help we named him Hedwig. He learned to come to it within in a few days and from anywhere in the house I could whistle and call Hedwig and he would come to me. After about a week we learned that he was very clearly a male (parrotlets are easy to sex visually) but we all loved the name so it stuck.

Hi! My name is Hedwig

I am a Pacific Parrotlet from Paris, TX.

Mom calls me her "baby boy bird". Dad and everyone else call me "Tazmanian devil or devil bird"

10 years old   M

Pacific Parrotlet

I love HUMAN FOOD! Why mom insists on feeding me the other stuff I will never know.

On top of the ceiling fan. (Of course it is left off at all times, mom made sure of that) and on top of the conure girls cages when they are covered. Of course on mom's shoulder or the plate of food that she is eating. She bought me a play gym, but I think its dumb.

Anyone who is not Mom being alive.

She loves me all the time. Even if I get nippy or jealous, she still thinks I'm adorable. She is also in the works of getting me a girlfriend. (YAY!)

I love to yell at everyone in the house even though I am only 5 inches big. Dad will sometimes touch mom when I am out and that is grounds for an all out flying attack. As the only bird in the house that is flighted I love to show off to Saphira and Sprite..

If I nip them, they will listen..

  Hi Hedwig
Here's a vote to you our friend.So how is the seperate room from Luna working out? Mom did let us visit with Kiwi and Mango the lovebirds one day.They were more excited to see us then we were of them.Actually we pretty much ignored them.I think this Monday she is going to put us in to the same room for awhile.Has your mom been looking into black masked lovies?Our mom went into a pet store today and there was a quaker and a sengal.The Sengal was a real sweetie.She held it and scratched its head and neck.One of the store employees had it out of the cage for some reason but then decided he didn't want to carry it back to the cage because the bird bit him.The other employee was busy so he didn't want it on his shoulder so mom told them she would hold it and take it back to it's cage.When mom asked questions about the bird no one could give her an answer.She didn't think that was very good.She has read up on them a bit but now she is going to look for a book specifically on Sengals.She also like Quakers.We think she will one day have a library of books on all the parrots.She has a pretty good collection so far.We hope one day you will like to be in the company of the rest of the flock Hedwig.We hope you and the rest of your family are having a great summer.Will do a fly by again. Seiji and Nori

Come visit me, Seiji & Nori.

  Hi Hedwig
How is it going? So your mom gave you and Luna your own room.Do you get to help doing the crafts? That could be alot of fun.So sounds like you and Luna do alot of chatting.We do too and sometimes we squabble.Mom and dad tell us to be nice.Still haven't found blues but mom is keeping her eyes open.We do have a couple of lovebirds that joined the flock.They are Mango and Kiwi.Seiji and I haven't seen them yet but we do hear them.They belonged to an aunt (she had them since they were babies - they are 4 years old now) and her boyfriend never really liked them because he said they were too loud.Well surprise, he is hard of hearing so he's loud,T.V is loud so naturally the birds had to be loud.Anyhow they were going to let them go so mom brought them here.They have been here just over three weeks but mom has them quarantined.She's trying to get them to eat something other then seed.They are getting curious and check out the different veggies and fruit.She hasn't seen them eating any yet.They have a big cage with lots of toys just like us.Mom can't believe how much we eat compared to those two.We love all foods.Do you and Luna like all different foods too? Everyday we pick through our salads looking for figs.We eat those first.Figs and strawberries are our favorite fruits so far.What are yours? Mom says we have to go and vote for Luna now. Take care Hedwig we will come see you again. Seiji and Nori

  Hi Hedwig
I was being an attack bird today, so I had a time out. Do you think that is fair? I was in time out before Summer this time. Her time came a little later, when she tried to attack Xerxes, though. I yelled and squawked, and mom told me I couldn't come back out til I stopped. I am trying to behave now. I am mad cause no one wants to party with me~~Harley

  Hedwig is the perfect name!
I don't know if you have ever seen "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" (I watched it with my mom) but "angry inch" is just such a perfect way to describe us parrotlets. I am always just one tiny ball of anger because all of those other birds try to take my mom's attention away from me. -Shrimp

  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 a beautiful little boy.We are glad you have a new home.Good thing your humans came to your rescue when they did.We are glad the store owner didn't just let you go outside.That could be very scary.Seiji and I are spectacled parrotlets and though we are just little we think we are big.I'm sure you know all about that.But still,if someone were to let us go outside I don't think we would be very impressed at all.Give your humans kisses for us,for taking you home.Seiji & Nori
