My owners saw an ad online from my breeder. They answered the ad and visited me shortly after. We immediately fell in love and bonded over the several months until I joined my family.. Awards

Hi! My name is Merlin

I am an African Grey from Dixfield, ME.

Merlin Diago, Merlin Gerlin, Gooba, Brat,

10 years old   M

African Grey

Fruit Loops and Kiwi

I Love to hang upside down in my cage or sit on the arm of our overstuffed chair and hang on my dad

Barking Dogs, Loud Noises, Computer Monitors scare me

I love to have my head scratched and my belly rubbed, I love to carry on conversations and I know I'm always right. but not when I talk bad like call my dad a peckerhead then I say that I'm a bad boy. My owners have to be very careful what they say around me. I repeat everything! I am starting to put words together and make my own sentences. I even carry on a whole conversation with myself. I even tell mom I'm sorry if I bit too hard.

Answers the phone, Tattles on the dogs, tells the dogs to come and then laughs when they go up to my cage.

I've got my owner wrapped around my beak and I love it..

  Hi Merlin, thanks for checking out my blog.. I wish i could have had this home when i was little like you, but, i'm glad i'm here now. Are you jelouse of one of your people parents? I only like mom!!! And I DO NOT like it when dad or the kids sit by her or kiss her. Thats my mom and I do not want to share.
I like the way you lay on your back, I'm not ready for things like that, or hanging by moms fingers. that looks very scary to me. mom says i'm really a chicken in a grey suit. But, she loves me anyway. Got to fly,its time for breakfast. See ya Remy and Mom

Come visit me, Falcor, Remy & Clover.

  You're soooo cute,
i love that first pix on the bottom, you're sure brave !!! SIMU here the CAG. Let my mom or dad try that with me and they would get a nice 'surprise' from me, hehehe. Hey, and i know what you mean about them barking dogs....sooo annoying. We have a little pup now and i'm trying to train him "my way". Keep on tattling on them dogs, and fly by to see me sometimes.

Come visit me, Simu & Flock & BELLA - Panama Amazon.

Hey Merlin!
My parents wanted to name me either Merlin or Archimedes, but I turned out to be a girl! So, I'm Arashi: The Sky Asunder! Long name, i know!
You are a very handsome bird :)

Come visit me, Arashi: The Sky Asunder, Rebel, Winnie, Pip, Maybelle, Tinkerbell, Lady Jezebel & Sir Percival.
