When I saw Rose as she was being handfed at the bird store, it was love at first sight.

6-21-10 Update
Yesterday, Rosie said "good morning" for the first time (after working on that with her for 2 years). However, I told one of the dogs that she was being antisocial and 2 seconds later Rosie says "antisocial." Go figure. I guess that's more interesting than a pleasant 'good morning.'

Rosie is a pirate! She finally said "Arrgh!" (and said it and said it). I'll see how long it takes her to say 'ahoy matey!'

Hi! My name is Rosie

I am a Congo African Grey from Scottsdale, AZ.

Rose, Rosebud, Rosebean

8 years old   F

Congo African Grey


Hanging upside down from the top of my cage, sitting on mom's arm

I really don't care much for the two dumb dogs that live with me. I thoroughly enjoy tattling on them when they do naughty things. I also don't like evil stuffed animals (good ones are okay). Vacuum hoses are a definite no-no. Don't even think about touching my back.

She always talks to me and spends time with me, and she makes me feel safe and happy. Alas, since she won't speak to me in parrot, I am learning to speak to her in human, which makes her very happy.

I enjoy hanging upside down in my cage like a bat, battling my toys and talking nonstop all day. Besides having a large and continuously growing vocabulary, I am proud to say I can whistle a part of the 1812 Overture, the theme to ESPN, and my piece de resistance: the ENTIRE theme of the Andy Griffith show! I especially like whistiling the Andy Griffith song over and over and over again..

Silence is NOT golden..

Mom thinks I am beautiful, especially with the peachy color under my plumage. I have a fister, Miranda just like you (but older! Ha!) Yes, I'm Cookie, 'cause I'm sooo sweet! Mom and dad were just up in Phoenix and Flagstaff in May and they loved AZ! What a greyt place you live in! Mom and dad are seriously considering moving there 'cause they are tired of the snow.

Hi Rosie! What a cutie you are. Thanks for the visit and the vote. You don't have to be a cockatoo to visit me! But to sound like one, well that would make you way cool in my flock. Any time you like to visit, fly in. And keep me up on how the voice training is going...Scrawk!

Come visit me, Daisy.

  Hi Rosie!!
Gandalf the grey here, flying by for a visit. :) I love your photo!!! It's fabulous! You are also very talented, I see. You can sing! Yeeesss! So can I. I am learning numbers right now, but can belt out a tune any day of the week, but not the 1812 overture. You've got talent, sister! I love to talk. I talk so much that my parronts literately have conversations with me! Oh - and I also think I can detect earthquakes (hee hee). (ok, really - I think I can! about 2 minutes before they hit, I do the night-fright flap-a-thon in my cage and give off 2 warnings chirps to my flockmates. This wakes up mom, who wakes up dad - if it's in the middle of the night - and then they sit up and just...wait. At least we're all prepared!)
Anyhow, now that I've gone on forever, here's a vote for you, Come by and visit me sometime!
~ Your friend, Gandalf

Come visit me, Clyde, BC Spa (closed for renovations), Raven, Rest in peace, sweet Lola. Page #262648!!!, Luca, Apollo, Gandalf & Lyzo.

  Hi Rosie
Thanks so much for stopping in to visit with me. Sometimes I feel forgotten because I don't get many visitors here on BC. My page is up to warn other birdies of the dangers of those bad tents that are made for us. If I save even one birdie with my page, then it is all worth it. You are a good looking guy. Thanks for being a friend.
