When my parakeet flew away, I was wanted a new bird and decided on a bird that I could really play with. I did some googling and came across the Paterson bird store in Totuwa(an awesome store with amazing staff) and met my grey Sammy. I was really nervous of her because I was used to a chirpy little parakeet not a dignified, nervous, cautious grey. We got used to each other very quickly and now we have a great relationship..

Hi! My name is Sammy

I am an African Grey from Airmont, NY.


7 years old   F

African Grey

Carrots, grapes, apples, peas, lima beans.
Yeah those are her healthy treats, the ones she gets all excited for and starts flapping are walnuts, nutriberries, and unshelled almonds.

Wherever the top is! He is slightly annoyed that he cant get onto the ceiling of my room.

She likes to be the king of the hill"!
She will also do ANYTHING for a walnut!
Do not do anything to her tail. She is much too proud for such undignified behavior.Also under the wings is strictly off limits to any human hands.
Whatever my mom is eating, I have to eat too.
I will choose when to come out of my cage, doesn't matter to me if you need to catch the bus and you want a cuddle before you go, the bird is in control here!
Don't put me back in the cage! I don't care if it's 10:30 at night! I want to stay out!

I feed her treats and bring him to high places. I also give her walnuts which are so delicious they fall under the category of ambrosia. She cuddles with me and gives me lots of kisses and head scratches.

She guards her food bowl
She also likes to hang from the top of the cage like a bat!
When I want a scratch, I cup my head in my hands.
I've started to laugh like a more like a hyena.
She doesn't want to leave the cage in the morning and she never wants to go back in at night!
She sticks her tongue out at me!
SHe bables hysterically when we're out of the room and when we come in, she gets all quiet, and looks at us as if to say,"Who me? Me... talking... no you must have the wrong bird... look over there at the chirpy parakeets, they must be the one's talking"
She will do ANYTHING for a walnut!

WAAAAAALNUTS! Give me a walut!.

Well you see, my mom is jealous of your mom because her dream bird is a grey. I am a huge talker and mama says i talk too much, I talk during the soaps, I talk while she is on the phone, I talk toalk talk all DAY long! And Yes I am very loud. I flock call loud enough to make the walls shake. But mama just squirts me with a water bottle. Hopefully mama will one day get her a grey. I don't like mama much and bite her every chance i get!!! But atleast mama understands and just leaves me alone! TO be a boy I really hate girls!

  Hello Everyone!
i'm doing great! I had an awesome breakfast, lunch, and dinner! Mom is trying to be extra nice to me cuz she's leaving to school soon. She's not going away but school for her is 10 hours a day cuz she had a double curriculum of hebrew and english studies. What that means is that mom is crazy busy during the year. So now she's being seriously nice to me to make up for all the tie she has to be away! I;m going to miss her!

So how was your trip to the spa? Nails all trim? Mom does my nails herself. Dad holds me in the towel and Mom trims them. I have never had to have my beak done. Fortunatly it seems to stay in trim without any help. Well time to fly. Hope you are having a great weekend. MM

  Hi Sammy
So glad to hear your Mom is home. I bet you were very pleased to see her. I hate it when my Mom goes away.

As for me I am doing just fine. It is hard to belive that we have now been in our new home for almost two months now. I very much like it. Mom took the oppertunity to have new rules for me on places to perch and such like. I picked up on it quick and am not unhappy about it.

Well time to fly. This is the first time in days I have had Mom to type for me so I want to fly round a few more friends to say hi. Hope you have a great day. MM

  Hi Sammy
If Mom is looking for some good stuff to add to your meal plan, get her to steam/cook up some sweet potato, carrots and squash. Mash them all together, divide into portions and freeze. Than all she has to do is defrost, warm it up (I don't like mine cold) and serve you some. It is packed with Vit A that us Greys need and is very tasty.

Glad to hear you are speaking out. Hehehe. Us Greys need to keep up our rep for talkers you know. Mom and Dad were having a good time listening to me talk to a local wild bird. I was calling out 'coming to see me', 'hello' and 'who's that'. All of a sudden I shouted 'what do you want' which got them laughing. I have no idea why they thought it funny. Seemed like a resonable question to me.

Hope all is well with you. MM

I finally convinced Mom to sit down for a few minutes. She has been super busy with the move thing. I am having great fun exploring the new house. It does throw me a little as several of my 'landing' places don't exist in the new house. Dad got to England OK and has called twice to see how we are. Several of our friends have been helping Mom with some of the move stuff but she is doing most of it herself. It must be important cause she hasn't even stopped to played golf in a whole week! Hehehe. Well have to fly. Will let you know how we are getting on in a day or so. Hope all is well with you. MM

  Hi Sammy
As you know we are moving house. The move happens on Tues but of course there is a lot to do before hand. Mom and Dad are very busy getting everything ready and they are having things done in the new house so it is all very hectic. We even had some workmen that were coming on Friday to do a job told us today that they were backing out. They don't want to do the job. Fortunately, Dad was able to find someone else who can do the job but not until Tue which is move day. Mom said if she wakes up Wed and is still sane that will be a bonus. Hehehe.

Will fly by when I can. MM

  Hi Sammy
My goodness what is going on! Mom and Dad spent a lot of time yesterday moving everything out of the kitchen. They even moved some of the furniture around. I didn't know what to do with myself really. Mom had me in lock down most of the time. Today there are people in the kitchen making a lot of noise. They are doing some things with the cabinets but as I have been sequestered upstairs I don't know for sure. It is all to do with this move thing. Mom said there is so much to do with lots of disruption over the next two weeks before the actual move date. She put my large play station and my cage in her bedroom today so there would be lots for me to do and I would feel safe with cage at hand. That is where I have been all day. Mom spent a good deal of the day with me so I would get to worried about all the hammering and noise. I guess it will be a few days before the work is done.

I am not too worried about the move. When we moved here from England I took it all in my stride. As long as I have my cage, my bell and Mom I am at home. Hehehe. Have a good day.

  Hi Sammy
How nice to hear from you. Our weather is moving to summer conditions now so it is getting very hot and humid. Of course hurricane season has now started so Mom is getting in the hurricane emergency supplies just in case. They are predicting a big season this year and are expecting a lot of storms. Of course that doesn't mean that they will all end up in Florida but we need to be prepared in case one sets it sites on us. Just one of the joys of living in Florida. Hehehe.

My other news is that we are moving to a new home in about 2 weeks. Mom and Dad are making all the arrangements. Mom said we will be in a bit of upheaval for a while and I am to visit friends on the actual move day. She doesn't want me to be upset by seeing a bunch of strangers removing our stuff. I have been to the new house a couple of times. Mom wants me to get used to it a bit before we go. Anyway, I must fly. Hope you have a great day. MM

Well Mom has a busy week. She is out today, tomorrow she is playing golf and on Wed we are doing a big house clean ready for a visit from Skin sister. She is flying in from England and will stay with us for 2 weeks. I don't mind the visit cause she is very nice. She gives me attention but is not pushy.

Speaking of cleaning. Mom took my cage outside to give it a super clean with the hose. Well, would you believe it, she gave me a super clean with the hose too. Yep, put it on a fine mist and then aimed it at the sky over my cage. Mom said she was just imitating my natural habitat in the African jungles. Natural habitat my foot! I've never been to Africa! I sure got wet and although I didn't like getting sprayed I certainly liked the after effect. It felt sort of nice and I talked and wagged my tail and played.

Well time to fly. I want to get by a few more friends before Mom has to go. MM

Yep, the bath bowl is sort of nice. Mom puts it on the breakfast counter top. I will usually jump in once in a while when she is doing the dishes. Seeing her splash around in the dish water makes me think maybe I should get wet too. It doesn't work everytime but Mom says that once in a while is better than not at all. Hey, I might even take a bath this afternoon in honour of Mom being home again. Hehehe. MM

Just a quick fly by to let you know that Mom is home from her visit with Grandma in NY. It has been a long 6 days without her. Dad and I are sure glad to see her back.

On taking a bath. I hate Mr. Bottle. Mom puts out a big bath bowl (I prefer to think of it as a paddle pool) for me which I use about twice a month. I will fly by again very soon to talk more about bathing. MM

Just had to fly by with the exciting news. Bird Paradise is now selling palm nuts which you can order online. They are on a special intro special of $1.74 per quarter pound. You can find them at cgi?product=247211&group=247210. They are not the red palm nut that I got in England but very similar. As palm nuts are the natrual food of us Greys I am spreading the word as this is the first time I have seen palm nuts for sale here in the US. MM

How nice of you to fly by. My Dad has been in England all this last week. He comes home tonight so Mom has been real busy getting the house all clean and looking nice. It sure will be nice to have him back home. As for me I helped mom clean house today and I have been busy shredding paper. Hehehe. The weather is good here as well. At last we have the warm weather back. Well have to fly. Mom still has some things to do before Dad gets home. MM
