My owner decided she wanted a cockatiel, and came and found me at my breeders house! She chose me because I was the only lightly colored one in my clutch, all my siblings were dark gray. She originally was looking for a male bird, and did not know that because both my parents were normal grays, that meant I would automatically be a female, and that she probably picked the only female bird!
It doesn't matter because she loves me anyway. She says I'm one of the sweetest and gentlest birds she owns.

Hi! My name is Katana

I am a Cockatiel from Marysville, WA.

Katanabird, Tana, Tanabird, Katanagirl, Tanagirl, Sweetie, Sweetheart, Babygirl

7 years old   F

Cockatiel

Millet! But I don't get that very often. Really, anything that I can steal from my owner's hands as she's eating it. She tells me I'm a bad birdy for doing that, but, it's so not fair! I should be able to have cookies too, shouldn't I?
I loooove when my owner gives me fresh edemame! It's sooo good. I sit there and eat every last little crumble of that green stuff.


On top of my cage is the nicest spot, or that little playgym owner carries around... just so long as Monk isn't here...

Monk, the lovebird. He pesters me at every turn, with his annoying squaking, and attempts to regurgitate. Sorry, but I want a guy at least my height, if not taller!

She lets me sit on her shoulder so I can preen myself, and she gives me a HUGE cage with a platform in it to sleep on. She also took great care of me when Mika bit my claw off, and when one of the dogs got ahold of me.
She does say I tend to get into trouble if she looks away for just a second!


I like to hang off the side of my cage and flap. Also, when my owner is not looking, I like to unhook my feed dishes. It drives her crazy! I even broke one once!
Oh, I also use my feet to eat. Not many cockatiels can do that!

Preen, preen, preen! Send the dust and keretin flying!.

  Hi Katana
You remind me of one of my flockmates but she is a normal gray and she is everything except sweet! She is always screaming at everything and everyone! thats probably cause she is laying eggs and dislike being pestered by curious budgies and lovies je je! Gotta go, byebye!

Come visit me, Murzy & Mercury.

  Helllo there
Just a brief introduction. I'm a 3yr old parrotlet, female and green with envy. You have nice friends.
I am a solo birdie. 'Cause I don't interact very well with other birds. But, on a light note, I do like my
owner's friend's kitty. He's nice and soft. I might try
riding on his back next visit. He's kinda old and has
mellowed and fortunately has no teeth.
Enjoy you flock and have a nice Christmas season.

Janet, Henderson, NV.

  Hi Katana
Scrappy here. Hey thanks for the recipe. Mom says she's going to make us some real soon. Sure sounds yummy. But of course since I'm a tiel I probably won't be holding it. hehe But know Kiwi and Sly will.
When mom got us she told the family that we were beautiful males! (they thought we were girls) And we were much paler too. But after we got here mom saw how colorful I got and my attitude too, and the fact I was scrapping with everyone. So I was named. Nolly was much paler too and mom says sweeter and quieter...still is the little kisser upper. Thus the name Menolly....now Nolly is acting more like Dandy and me. hahahaha FOOLED MOM!!! Oh and the color is out royal too. Doesn't make any difference to mom either way. We are bonded because we were always together. We can't get out of the others sight without screaming. We're getting that way with Dandy now too. You can only imagine how it is with mom answering the phone and we start in. hahahahaha Of course Sly and Kiwi help too.
Fly by again when you can. v4u

Hello Katana and Flock,

It was very nice of you to fly by and to give me a recipe. I'll have to see if Mama will make it for me.
We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving day and got some good things to eat.
We had a good day of eating, playing, flying and resting. What could be better than that?
We are very thankful for all our BC friends and just wish we could spend more time hanging out on everybirdies pages.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and all your family, and a vote for you,

Pringle and Poirot

  No, no - not the whole foot - just a claw. Mika (the senegal) jumped on top of Katana's cage and bolted down the side of it whilst Katana was climbing around on the walls (as cockatiels do)... the sennie got ahold of one toe and during the healing process the claw fell off and still hasn't returned after nearly a year.
The platform was mainly because I think that birds should have a flat place to rest, and also because Katana could not place all her weight on one of her legs after the dog bit her - she's better now, but it took a few months to get her right again - I feared she would never eat with her feet again!

Come visit me, Monk, Klutz, Mika "Thanks ALL for 2/17 BOTD!", Katana, Pluto, Neptune, Tink, Cayenne & Farewell, dear, sweet Klink.

  Hello Katana
When you say claw, do you mean your whole foot?? Out female 'tiel runs that sort of risk with our quaker. For some reason the food in the quaker's cage is a good place to forage. sounds like you have a great owner to get you a platform for sleeping. How do you hang on to the shoulder??

Come visit me, Polly; Thank you ! V4 Chipper #257319 BOTM & Zippy; V4 Chipper #257319BOTM.

  Hello Katana
Welcome to bird channel and here is a big first vote for you! You have a handsome flock of birdies to hang out with!!!! You are a lucky cockatiel indeed! We think that it is funny that the lovebird in your flock tries to regurgitate to you. Rocket regurgitates to Pedro all of the time. At first she thought it was gross and would put her foot up to push him away...but now she loves him and accepts the "feast" that he offers!!!! Ughhh! Rocket tries to regurgitate to Mom, too...and that makes Pedro really jealous. Fly on in for a visit any time!
Rocket & the gang
