My family wanted a baby Cockatiel, So when we saw a ad. for baby 'tiels my family went and looked at them. When we got there I saw a beautiful white face 'tiel (now Sunny)and it was love at first bite. I had to tame her some, because she was a bit nippy. But at the end I would not trade her for any other bird.. Awards

Hi! My name is Sunflower Seed

I am a Cockatiel from Katy, TX.

Sunny, Cutey Pie, and Baby.

9 years old   F


I love Nutri-Berries, Krunch-A-Rounds- , and millet. Did I already say millet because I love millet.

I like to sleep in my food dish at night. On Mommys shoulder, so I can play with her hair.But one of my best spots to hang out is on the curtain rod. My mommy just bought me a new toy it is a coconut shell that is split in half and three strings hold them apart. ( about 4")
It is so much fun to lie in the bottom shell and move the beads that are on
the strings.

I don't like it when my family leaves to go to the store. When my silly, furry brother,Tuffy, the dog barks. When nobody gives me what they are eating. Last but not least, when I don't get to swim in Mommys food, that makes me so mad! You know those human slaves should let me swim in that bowl of cereal!

She always singing to me so I have now learned "Its a
Grand Old Flag." She lets me play with her hair too. But best of all she holds me when ever she has time."I like it best when she is watching a movie, so I can snuggle under her chin and sleep."

Barking like my furry brother, Tuffy, and then laughing after. Sleeping my food dish so that my tail sticks up in the air. Singing my own version of "Its a Grand Old Flag.".

"Hand over the millet and no one gets hurt.".

Your Mom doesn't let you swim in her cereal bowl?!?! How rude!!!!! My Grandma lets me swim in hers....ok, it's empty, no cereal, but she fills it with water for me to splash in. Does your Mommy get special hair beads for you to chew on? My Grandma gets no metal hair beads for her hair and likes to see how long it takes me to chew through the elastic. Which is never too long since I have chewed through my concrete manacure perch before [Grandma was quiet impressed]. You are quite pretty. My cousin, soon to be permanent brother, Tyson Parker also has no ear patches. Worthingtons' are yellow, so you can see them, but Tyson Parker looks like you. I'm a cinnamon pearl split to pied. Does your Mommy make you Birdie Mush? That's what Grandma feeds us with pellets and nutri-berries. No millet though. I love your name! Very pretty! I just popped by to say HI!!

  Hello Texan!
Great to hear from you. You have built in A/C? Wow must be nice. Here we don't. We also missed the bird mart today as grandma was here. i was alittle cranky because I didn't get enough sleep. We all had a nap this afternoon to make up for the lack of sleep. much better now. Grandma is here because he other grand -daughter is graduating from high school. It was a short sweet visit. She loved the mini scrapbook we made for her. She likes staying with us cause we are cool and fun. I wanted to attack her earrings but she wouldn't let me. I wish she could stay longer but she has other family that she visits also. It is my 1st birthday today. There was a chocolate cake. Apparently it was very good. I got lots of snuggles and kisses. It was great I had an ALL about me day. How are things with you? Has your mom found you a friend yet? I better get going as it is passed my bed time. I gave you a vote. Mom still thinks you are the cutest aside from her dads new puppy that she won't shut up about. Have a great week. TTYL - Dito.

  Hi Sunflower Seed
Hi there you are a very different color little lady. My mom said she has never seen a cockatiel your color it's beautiful. Don't feel bad I had my feet in the cereal bowl with milk in it about to dunk my head in it and my mom caught me. I thought she was going to have a heart attack. Have a good weekend.

Bozo here...Whatcha ya up to, Little Gal? Me? I had a pleasant afternoon in the yard, watchin' my Mom plant flowers. I had the breeze in my face and the sun on my back. It was great! No rain, so no shower. When you said that it poured at your house the other day was the from the spray bottle or did it actually rain??? I don't like spray bottles...the words 'Stop It' always come to mind when I see one of those. Mom assumes that in my former home a squirt bottle was used as a threat to silence my excessive noise. Here it's used to mist the smaller birds but none of us bigger birds care for "man-made rain". As for my excessive noise, I've learned to tone that down considerably. I'm actually encouraged to be loud when I'm outdoors, 'to let the natural behaviors loose' as Mom puts it! I like screamin' in my birdroom...the sound just amplifies off the walls!! Outdoors it just kind of drifts away on the wind. That, or calls the nearest hawk into the neighborhood, I swear!! Hope all is well with you, my little Sunflower Seed! (Mmm...just saying your name makes me hungry for a little snack before nite-nite time...) A V2U... R '>

I haven't seen the rain in a while. it hasa been sunny and very bright here. I watch all the kids in the park. Today is ging to be very hot. Mom put the fan on and dad bought and A/C (looks like a robot) That should keep us cool. Mom havd a candle party on Sunday. All these people were more interested in us. We were and always are the center of attention. I don't like crowds. I like just the family. Raptor and Theo like to entertain. Other than that all is good. I am getting used to Theo. I went and checked out his cage the other day. Mine is nicer and bigger but his had some cool toys and not bad food. I hope you get some nicer weather. Gotta fly and get dad up for work. Here's a vote from the sunshhine in BC. TTYL Dito

How are ya, pretty little Cutey Pie? Ooo, a pool sounds like a fun place to hang out when it's hot! I can just picture a floating island designed just for a bird to perch on while everyone else splashes about in the pool! It could have an inflatable palm tree, an 'old log' as a perch, and a convient drink holder for some cool to sip while sunbathing! Hardeee-ho...what an idea. Speakin' of splashing and water, today it actually rained at my house...a rarity these days!! Also unusual was what my Mom did with me when it was pouring out; she got me to step up on my carrying perch, took me onto the porch then stuck me out in the rain for a rainforest-like shower. At first I thought she'd gone a little cuckoo but then I figured out what she was up to and actually got into the whole au natural shower! Wow! I've never felt so clean and shiny!! I wonder if I'll get to do this every time it rains??? I hope she doesn't plan on dangling me out in the storms that have lightening included. I don't want to be a fried chicken!! Hope you're not 'fried' by all the hot weather you're likely to be havin' in TX! Stay cool, Partner!! Looking forward to seeing your new pics that will show me your changing colors...A V2U!

Just me again I forgot to tell you mom put a story about us on the web. Check out Birdchannels web. Sorry I had to be short this am but mom had to go. I told you about my visit to the Petstore well I am doing much better. Mom and dad tried t give me a bath the other day. I would have no part of it. I think they got more of a shower than I did. haha. I will shower when I am ready and right now I am not. Must give them credit as they are getting pretty creative. Moms doing the scrapbook thing again Friday night so we get another night with dad. That's always fun as we can do whatever we want. He leaves the mess for mom when she gets home! She gets 4 days off as it is a stat holiday. Not that I know what that is but she gets 4 days off. Thus we can hang out! A few more weeks and my fav GrandMAMA arrives. Must get all cleaned up for that. Well I will sign off as I would like to enjoy this sunshine while it lasts. Does you mom still want a budgie? Likdding mom would be very upset if I gave her 1st baby away. TTYL Dito

Glad you had fun with your aunt. I have been just hanging out. We have been busy trying to get the patio and plants ready. Mom loves doing all that stuff.

Humidity! Feels great to this bird...makes humans grouchy, at least that's what I've noticed here. It was almost cool at my house today. I went outside but only briefly 'cause the sun went behind some clouds and it got too cool for me. You said your mom wanted to know about how loud I can get... I'll give you my mom's opinion, not my dad's or the youngest son's rating! I can be loud, VERY loud, but generally only in bursts! (Ok, so it's a blast that's loud enough to make your ears ring. Literally.) When I first came to this house I was incredibly loud. A lot of the time. Even my Mom wondered about her decision to add me to the flock. But when I figured out that I got the cold shoulder and majorly ignored when I screamed but got treats and company when I said words nicely, well, it didn't take long (a couple of months) for me to learn to tone it down. I'm allowed to get wild, crazy loud outside so I do have a chance to be a Macaw and get it out of my system! (We live in a rural area, only 6 house, three of them are my family so they understand. One couple is older and nearly deaf (not my fault!) so I don't bother them. The other two, well, they find me entertaining!) You cockatiels, I will say, are plenty volumous for such little birds! The difference, I think, is that you're making music and racket almost constantly! The 5 that are here are always jabberin' about somethin'! It's sweet. I'm not complaining! Just pointing out the differences. At my house, anyway. But yup, we Macaws have the volume to go with our size. It's a package deal! Nice to hear from you, Sunflower Seed! Hope tomorrow isn't as humid for ya. Here's a Vote for you!

Hey, thanks for stoppin' by my page. I bet you miss looks like you two shared notes often. Is it hot in Texas already? It was 80° here today...a nice temperature for a tropical bird but my mom was already grumbling about the heat! She wants to live in the mountains of Colorado but I remind her often that her chosen hobby (birds!) prefers, say, Texas temps!! You're sure a pretty little thing! And I really like your motto...funny one! (There are some 'tiels here that surely feel the same way!!) Good day to you!! A V2U, of course!

Glad to hear from you! Did you go on the holiday with your mom? 9.5 hours driving. Wow! That's a drive. Not much new around here. Same old thing. Well on Sunday mom wasn't feeling good but she was worried about me. The people that sold me to mom and dad clipped my wings very short. This is an ongoing issue. I went to see a very nice young lady named Sharon @ the Pet store sunday. She was great. trimmed my nails bathed me. sHE ALSO HAD A LOOK @ MY WINGS AND FIXED THEM UP. i AM A MUCH HAPPIER BIRD. Opps hit the caps key. Mom tried to bath me no I was not having any part of that. She tried must given points for that. Very excited there is a birdmart coming up and that means more toys and stuff for us. Can't wait. Another month and GrandMAMA returns for a visit. She's great I can't wait to see her. Grandpa is getting another dog this time a puppy. Mom is excited as she is going over there later to meet the new critter. Me no I will stay home and manage the fort. Keep my roomies in check. Maybe dad will be home early and I can hang with him. Well I should go as mom has to get back to work. Take care keep in touch. Here's a vote from me! Dito

  Well Hello
Glad to hear all is okay. I was getting worried. Did your mom find you a friend? I have been hanging with my mom myself. I am learning alot from Raptor. He has been getting into trouble. I just sit there and look like the sweet and innocent tiel that I am. I own the perch in the mirror. It is now officially mine and I DO NOT share. I get very upset if something is on it. No! We tried a new treat some treat bar it looks like a granola bar. Not bad. I love cherrios. Yummy. I sit in the window ledge on my mini radio and watch all the humans in the park playing. The nicer weather seems to bring humans out. It is rather nice to watch the strange things they do. Mom tells me what they do but I no understand. Baseball? Frizbee? Football? What is that? Some girl was flying a kite. That scared me even though I am in the house. Well we should get going as mom does have work to do. Talk to you later. Dito
