I found him in a crowded local pet store. The owners told me he was aggressive and that they had acquired him from an elderly gentlemans family when he passed away. I started handling him and found out, he's not mean he's just selective in the people he's nice to. So I guess you can say he chose me..

Hi! My name is Charlie

I am a Meyer's Parrot from Fort madison, IA.

Charleston, Sharles

14 years old   M

Meyer's Parrot

I love dried papaya and sunflower seeds.

Sitting on my playgym on the computer desk, or the top of my cage.

I don't like being covered up at night, I have to be reassured over and over. And I can say Good Night but I really don't like it, lol
I also don't really like anyone else but my mom. She wishes I'd be a little more open minded but it's ok because I'm really nice to her.


Oh man do I love her, and no one else. ;) I love when she scratches my neck and gives me papaya chunks.

I'm a weirdo so I have lots of quirky habits. I dunk my pellets in my water before I eat them so mom has to change my water all the time. I also say my name in a bunch of different voices and sometimes I sound evil when I do it really low lol.

Thank God for small favors..

Do you know about the baseball teams on Birdchannel?

Last year there was not a Meyer's team; if we get one together this year, would you be interested in playing?

Let me know (and by the way, all of us except Casey and Pebbles are rehomed birds so we are glad you have found your current home!)

  Hi Charlie
Thanks for coming to see me. You look so much like our cousin Rainbow. Meyers are great little birds...we are all family. Nice to meet you. I think I am going to like it here. Do you think my name is OK? I came here with it~~Big Bird

  Hi Charlie
I'm Rainbow, and I am a Meyers too. I have had my page just a few days now, and I don't know many birdies like me. I sure love your main pic. I am a snugglebunny too. My Auntie loved me the minute she saw me, and that is why my daddy took me home. He has a Trach, and doesn't talk real well, so I never did learn to talk, but I love to make lots of really cool sounds~~Rainbow

  hi!
Wow, Charlie you are a very striking bird! My mom thinks you're beautiful. Me and my sister Maddie are the first non-South American species my mom has ever had! Yes, she loved living in South America and hopes you get to visit someday. We have to help conserve our bird cousins there! Thanks for visiting my page though, and here's a vote from all of us!

Come visit me, Captain Jack, Mathilda & Riley.

Kelly here, just flappin' by to say hope your Easter Weekend was a nice one. Wouldn't it have been nice if the weather had been warmer and we could've gone outside for the egg hunt? Last year I got to watch all the wild and crazy activities from my outdoor perche but not this year....too cold! Catch ya later, Neighbor! K

  Kelly, again...
I'm turning into a regular pest here! It is what I'm known for...being a pest! Anyway, I was wondering if the Coral Reef pet store in Burlington is still in business? My mom shops in that town more than anywhere else so I suggested she find out about that store...I know when she goes into a bird store I always get some new toy to play with so it's in my best interest to find out about this store!! Hope your weekend's a fun one! Later, Charlie! And might I suggest you be nice to dad this weekend? Think about it, you could get a ton of papaya treats if you were extra sweet! Easy for me to say...if you told me the same, about being nice to others beside my mom, I'd be in trouble...no amount of almonds or popcorn would convince me to resist the temptation to get a little pinchy! It's tough, ain't it!! AVote2U..

Come visit me, Kelly.

Awesome to hear from you again! The reason I asked if you were from Dan's is because a bird just like you was there for the longest time...waiting to be adopted...his previous home didn't work out...my mom talked with him everytime she was there...even considered adopting him because he was such a sweetie and was breaking her heart waiting so long for a forever home. Thought that little guy might've been you! Glad you found your permenent perch! My mom's bummed that Dan's closed...she liked seeing the birdies and other critters...but now she's no longer tempted to bring home lonely looking birdies! Ever heard of the Gibb's Brothers Band...they're from Ft. Madison...my dad's great friends with them! Another vote for my neighbor...!

Come visit me, Kelly.

Kelly here...the CAG from IL. The pet store you refer to in your note, was it Dan's in Burlington??? Is that where YOU came from? Can't wait to hear your answer to these questions! Thanks for visiting my page. It's cool to know you're so close...there seem to be so few birds from the midwest area on these pages. Great to meet you. A vote to a neighbor!

Yep, I was kept with the hens -- I can do a pretty good broody hen and cluck with the best of them!!! I don't have to stay with the chickens anymore, I get to live in a house!

  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.

  Hi Charlie
I am Flip. I flew away once but only because I was thrown. My clipped wings fooled my human. He later found all quakers can fly quite well clipped wings or not. I only fly on a leash now. I did not know how to turn and just went straight and straight up. I used to go outside without a leash every day until then. I still go outside without one occassionly. I had a leash on in that photo. My feathers and leaves hid it quite well.

Yes, I love my big black god. It opens up and shows me the light every day until my bird bowls runneth over with bountiful harvest. I hate it when my human comes between me and it and I can't gaze upon it's glorious splender and wonder. Signed, Flip the Bird.

Yes, mom says I'm pretty anyway too...even with my bullet proof vest. I've been calling it a bullet proof vest coz it sounds less humiliating than "e-collar". Makes me feel very important! So what's this...only 4 votes? I can fix that! Birdie hugs, Buddy

  Here’s a vote for you and a birdie poem:

I love birds, I love them so,
Life without them I’ll never know.
Each day starts with a meeting,
Chirps and whistles it’s their own special greeting.
Fresh fruits and veggies to wash and chop,
Served with warm birdie bread to fill each crop.
Toys of wood, leather and bells,
Makes for fun with loud squawking yells.
Feathers and pellets all over my floor,
Does not deter me from loving them more.
As the sun fades we share kisses and scritches,
Then it’s off to each cage with sweet dream wishes.

If you enjoyed that, please stop by the Bird Contest section on this website and give us your vote in the poetry contest – we are on page 4! Mom would like to add another member to our flock and by winning a new cage, this would encourage Daddy to let her do so!

Come visit me, Riley, Tinkerbell, Tiki & Sayde Rose.

Welcome to the channel! I could hardly believe my eyes when I saw you were a Meyer's! I'm a Meyer's too and I hardly ever see them on here! We look like we could be brothers! I'm in my 2nd home too. It was funny, coz everyone thought I was the meanest bird ever...but to my mom I'm a sweetie! Guess I was just waiting for her to come along! I'm voting for you today...come visit me sometime! Birdie hugs, Tiki

  Hi Charlie
Hi Charlie, my name is Pippin, and I am a 1 year old Senegal from Jacksonville, FL. Congratulations on your new home. I have been with my daddy for almost a year now, and every day is a fun adventure and new experiences for me. Some of my favorite treats are pine nuts, corn on the cob, and pistachios. My favorite place to hang out is under my daddy's chin where I can sit and get my feathers stroked. My daddy has taught me how to whistle "Yankee Doodle", and has started trying to teach me "Pop Goes the Weasel". I will whistle "Yankee Doodle", but sometimes I get it mixed up. Welcome to the group.

Come visit me, Pippin.
