We read up a bit on birds and know people who have birds. We visited a store and fell in love with Percy. It was love at first sight even though we were going to get a finch when we first walked in there.. Awards

Hi! My name is Percy

I am a Cockatiel from Hyde Park, NY.

10 years old   F


Percy loves millet as well as crunchy treats that taste like cherry blossoms. She also enjoys an occasional grape.

Percy loves being close to either me or my husband on our arms or on our shoulders. She likes her cage near the kitchen windows where she can see the wild birds at the feeders.

I love when they rub me on my head, around my ears and under my chin. I love being cuddled, too.

I wouldn't necessarily call it quirky but Percy loves eating her dinner when we're eating. We'll move the cage to a corner of the dining room and when she sees us sit down to dinner, she walks down her ladder and eats her dinner..

To "air" is avian..

Alex the famous Grey who worked with Dr. Irene Pepperberg, died this morning. Dr. Pepperberg must be absolutely devastated. I have copied what it says on the Alex Foundation website.--- We are deeply saddened to announce Alex died this morning of unknown causes. We will have a formal press release on Monday when we know the cause of death. He was absolutely fine yesterday and he was found dead this morning. Dr. Pepperberg will take the weekend to mourn his death. We hope to have more information on Monday We miss him so much. Thank you, Arlene Levin-Rowe - Pepperberg Lab Manager and the Pepperberg Lab Staff

  Hi Percy,
My owner said I must write to you to let you know she thinks you are a cuter. Stop by and visit me sometime on my page. My mom used to breed cockatiels so she has a special place in her heart for you. Oh, I also think you are ok. I had a friend called willow she was a tiel also. bye for now. Cody

Come visit me, Cody & Pat.
