My mom first met me when she started to volunteer at the Lily Sanctuary in 2009 (a parrot rescue she is currently still a volunteer at) and fell in love with me instantly. I was very scared of humans but I do love to have my head and neck rubbed. I am letting mom cuddle and kiss me too! I am an import from Chile, and little is known about me, however my previous owner abandoned me with no food and water and left me in a dark room to die when he moved. Not very nice! I was brought to the sanctuary where I let some of my feathers grow back (I pretty much plucked them all out when I was abandoned and think I may have damaged the feathers forever). So my new mom got to know me, fell in love with my nakedness, and had to add me to her family. I finally have a permanent family to love!

* Note from Clydes mom * Update* 07/19/2013: Clyde has been diagnosed with advanced cataracts. He is almost completely blind in his right eye and partially blind in the left. He sees shadows and this frightens him. I had to move him to a smaller cage as he has started to have seizures as well. His first one was in April and he broke his wing in two spots. Surgery was not required but it took 6 weeks to heal. Despite all this, he is still a jovial fellow who loves his veggies and getting neck rubs and scritches. He is utterly adorable and he is much adored.

Interesting fact: Patagonians are CLIFF DWELLERS in their native homeland, Chile. What does that mean? They live in cliffs by burrowing.
So what has Clyde been up to? He licked the wall to death in one particular spot and started a hole about the size of his eyeball - and tried to squeeze in the hole! Silly goose. We're trying to figure out something for the inside of his cage so he can 'Dwell'. Any idea's are welcome!

Hi! My name is Clyde

I am a Patagonian Conure from La Mirada, CA.

The Clyde-ster, My little turkey boy, McLickster

23 years old   M

Patagonian Conure

Corn corn and more corn! I like a cheeze-it now and again too. Not healthy but I like them.

On my perch and play stand, but I like to be around mom too. I like being on my cage door, hanging out and watching the other flock members. I like to think of myself now as the 'aviary' guardian. I also have this thing about moms shoulder. I want to be on it but I'm a little unbalanced so mom doesn't risk it. I'm also currently working on the cliffside behind my cage (mom calls it a WALL, but it's not. It's a cliff). I plan to burrow in there and invite guests for tea. :)

Hands, people, movement, sticks of any kind

She takes me in the shower so I can have my 'shower coma'. Ahhhh what joy! She has patience with me and lets me just be a parrot. She spoils me and preens my pin feathers. She blows angel kisses on my naked wing spot and makes me giggle. I love to preen her hair and face, and I am getting pretty good at giving kisses too.

My call is almost like a turkeys. I do not sound like most parrots and sometimes chortle instead of sqawk! I also like to run. If I end up on the ground, I love to lead a merry chase!!! And I love the TV. I can sit on mom for HOURS and watch it. I would rather play hide-n-seek with mom though. And licking! I have this weird thing now where I love to lick hands, towels, toys, walls, anything (hence the nickname Mclickster.

I love licking things!.

  Happy Happy Hatch Day, Clyde!
Wishing you lots of treats and toys and head scritches on your big day! I think we are related becos I'm a Pionus and my ancestors were cliff dwellers in Ecuador. Well, I think my relatives are still there but I was hatched in the US. That is cool that you're from Chile! Do you speak Spanish? What a story you must have!
Enjoy your special day!

  Hi guys
It's me, Lola.
Papa John wasn't mad at me. He understood that I just wanted to be on his shoulder. A princess has to know how to communicate.
At toy? For me? Aw, you shouldn't have....Uh, oh yes, you should have. He He. I can hardly wait. Hurry up!
Hope you all had a great week.
Love you all,

  Hi guys
It's Lola again.
You're right, I am happy here. But I didn't nip because I wanted food, I nipped because I wanted to stay on papa John's shoulder and there was no two ways about it.
I will always love you all, too.
Love,
Lola

  Hi guys
It's me, Lola.
Gosh it's good to see you all. Thanks so much for dropping by. This is sure a surpise.
I just love it here. Popa John and momma Lori are so nice to me. If they're not careful, they just might spoil me.
Yesterday, while mom and dad were fixing dinner, I decided that I wanted to sit on papa John shoulder. So I flew over and landed on his shoulder and refused to get off. I nipped mom and dad when they tried to remove me. I finally ALLOWED dad to put me back in my cage. I sure did show them who's boss, didn't I?!
I hope you all are having a great time. Say hi to mom for me. Momma Lori and papa John are the greatest but momma Dede will always be my mom.
Love you all,
Lola
