Hi! My name is Ben

I am an Eclectus from Calgary, AB.

"Big Bad Ben" "Baby Birdie"

9 years old   M



My hand, my shoulder, kitchen of course... staring out the window on his tree wishing the snow would go away. Playing in one of his toy boxes.

"Nite - nite".

His great taste in parrots, and he likes to tell me a scary story about when I was just little and I fell out of my nest and fell all the way down to the jungle floor and was rescued by a monkey.

Standing on his head on command. Displaying his beautiful wings while saying "beautiful wings"
Attacking chicken bones and grinding them to dust. Ice cubes get the same treatment.
Falling on my back in my owners hands when I want to get my own way or don't want to go "nite - nite" Gripping my finger like a vise and not listening to any command to step down when he doesn't want to go back to his cage.Ben knows over 80 different words.

"Supper Time".

Please come see me, my Sister, Cheyenne (Meyers), my Brothers, Parker (English Keet) and Apache who is the Baby. He's a White Face Cockatiel. I have to go now but I'm gonna leave you a vote Okay?

Your new baby is wonderful. Where did Truman come from, I gather he was shipped to you? If so, I think that would have been scary for you both. How old is he? He is actually an un-cape, correct? I was lucky enough to hold one in my local bird store. Great special parrots! I was also lucky to be able to attend a local fundraiser for So African Cape Parrots held by Jean Pattison. I have read everything I could find on them, I'm sure you have, too. I seriously thought about getting the one I held but it wouldn't be fair to the 2 birds I have and love so much. Not enough of me to split anymore. You are very lucky to get to add Truman to your home and so is he to be added! I look forward to watching and hearing as Truman grows!! Congratulations and Good Luck!!!

Come visit me, LUCKY, LOUIE Hi! Pals, LIBBY LU - Hi Pals! & LACIE.

  Hi Ben
I play peek a boo too hihihi. So you talk alot eh? What kind of foods do you eat? Mom and I were sitting on the porch and we heard this noise like a chicken across the road at the farm. Then we saw the beautiful fanned tail of a peacock over there. It sure was pretty so now I will have to watch when I am outside to see it again. “Come sit on the perch with me, but if you can’t you see, we can still visit on BC”. Just like Motel 6, I will leave a light on for you. V4U…Your feathered friend, Gus.

Come visit me, ~~Gus~~ & Chi chi RIP my sweet girl..
