I was going to rescue a bird. I went to the Pet Store to find out some information about Cockatiels and he spotted me. he jumped up on my hand and did not want to go back. I was ready to take him home that second. I had brought my voice of reason with me who reminded me we had no cage yet. I put him on hold. Left work early the next day, picked up a new cage and Raptor. He has been a great addition to our Flock. He is full of personality and life. There is never a dull moment when he's around unless he's sleeping..

Hi! My name is Raptor

I am a Cockatiel from Langley BC, BC.

Mr., Squeeker, Screecher, Mr. demanding, Clear cutter, Porky, Beast, Brat, Rappa Rappa, Happy Ham

8 years old   M

Cockatiel

I eat anything I can. I love anything my human companions are eating. I like seed, millet, treats of any kind. I eat Theo's food when I can get in his cage.

I hang out on all the cages in our bird room. I have taken over the bathroom counter as Dito gets the perch and she DOES NOT share. I love to hang out @ the computer. My dad is learning Spanish so we hang out every night @ the computer. I am learning but I can't talk yet. My other favorite spots are napping on the couch with mom or just hanging out with dad watching TV. I have my plant in the kitchen window that I like to sit on and stare out the window. I used to go for walks in the park but now that I have flight I need a leash. Good luck getting that on me! The dinning room table is very interesting as I can play and chew with whatever is on the table. I'll hide on top of the fridge and wait for dad then I pounce on him. Moms purse is my new favorite thing to investigate.

I do not like bedtime, being locked in my cage or when mom has to go to work. I have my mirror and I own everyones elses so I get upset when mom takes them to be cleaned. I don't do mornings very well. I like to sleep in.

She gives me ALL the attention I demand. She puts up with my temper tantrums. I love to snuggle. I get snuggle time before mom goes to work and when she gets home and before bedtime. I get a clean cage with fresh food daily. She is always bringing home new toys and treats. She always finding new things to keep us entertained while she is @ work. She also gives me freedom to be who I am and loves me no matter what.

I love plants. After I clear cutted 5 of moms favorite plants she bought me my own and put it in the kitchen window. I have shaped it to my liking. it is perfect. I love to screech to get attention. I don't take no for an answer either. If I want something I always get my way. I have a thing for laundry. i have to help out. The dryer puzzles me I don't understand the strange sound it makes..

I am all that and a bag of chips.

  Hello from the Moonshiners !!
Hey Everybirdy !!! We're back !! Mom is finally well enough to go back to work which means we can get back on the computer. The last two months were rough. We took care of mom the best we could. Sang to her all day long to make her feel better. Redneck and Hillbilly perched themselves next to mom everyday to keep an eye on her. Whiskey and I kept climbing around her shoulders to make sure she was being entertained. Yesterday was rough because we didn't know where she went until she got home from work and said hello to us. Dad is out of work right now so there is always someone home, but it's not the same. Dad doesn't let us climb all over him. The summer has been pretty crazy here with mom being sick and dad being out of work. The weather has been great all summer long, but we haven't been able to go outside at all. And would you believe after two months of not being here I don't even have a good story to tell. Mom keeps trying to take new pictures of us, but clam up every time the camera comes out. It's our little game with her. Well mom announced it's time for her walk, so we have to go. It's great to be back and we hope to hear from y'all soon!!

Come visit me, Redneck & Hillbilly & Whiskey & Bourbon.

The Quakers are ready to play ball. Game one should be this week- I will let you know. I have gotten real good balancing on the head rests.I used to fall off a lot when the car went around a turn but now I am a pro even on the way home when I don't have my nails to grip. My mom puts towels so I don't poop all over the car. Bye bye.

Here is a Let's Kick those Amazon Tail Feathers vote for you. Game one is at noon tomorrow. The Moochers found the BYM headquarters complete with a radio tower to send messages. See pics on the Mooscher's page. They said they would talk with the turkey vultures to keep an eye on them and report any significant movement. Bye bye.
