Mojito is pretty special. My dad walked outside to our front yard one fine day and heard him squawking up in the palm tree across the street. It also appeared as if he was nibbling on the leaves, my dad figured he must have been starving. He rushed inside to grab our Quaker, Beki, and a bowl of birdfood. He set both on the ground and within minutes he swiftly landed on my dad's head! He ran inside with both birds. When I came home from school and I saw Mojito--it was love at first sight. To this day, he hasn't bonded with anyone like he has with me..

Hi! My name is Mojito

I am a Conure from Miami, FL.

'Jito, Baby

8 years old   M

Conure

I love Fruit balls and sunflower seeds.

My rope perch--right in the middle of all the action--in the kitchen.

I can't stand when I hang upsidedown in my cage and no one pays enough attention to take me out! I mean, I'm hanging upsidedown by one foot for goodness sake! Who could resist letting me out?

I love how sweet and gentle she is. Many hands scare me, but she always makes me feel safe when I'm with her. I know whenever I'm scared I can call out and she knows when I need her. I can't explain the feeling of love I have for her--only that when I met those brown eyes I knew I could never have or love another owner.

I love to violently attack my toys when I'm excited, and sometimes confuse my feet and begin to bite them as well. Don't worry, I never hurt myself!! I also love to grab my face with my foot when I get kinda sleepy. I love massaging my head this way..

"What?" (Its my normal bird call, but my owners think it sounds like I'm saying "what" all the time. Now my whole family says "what" in exactly the same fashion I do! I knew teaching humans couldn't be that hard!!).

Mom's been giving us a lot of fresh vegetables from her garden, boy do we love that. We vote for you every morning. We don't let mom get away with not letting us visit friends and vote for friends. ttyl

  Hi Mojito
We are so glad to hear that so far you are doing good. It sounds like you should be fine. We will continue to keep you in our prayers. Boy, it has been so hot here. It has been in the 90s with 60% humidity. We haven't been able to go outside too much lately. It is supposed to cool down to the upper 70s later this week, then we will be able to go outside again. We gave you a vote today. ttyl

You caught us just before camping. Mom and dad are leaving at noon today. We're staying with mom's son and his girlfriend. They have an African Grey and four dogs so we will be busy. They will spoil us rotten. Hope everything is well down there. It's been hot and humid here. Upper 80s, low 90s and of course humid because of Lake Michigan. We'll fly by when we get back. A vote for you today.

  Good Morning Mojito
Thank you for the vote. We voted for you today. It got down to about 40 last night. right now it is only about 46 outside. It is supposed to get to the mid 60s today. Mom likes it about 70 to 78. Dad teases her because she is Finnish, her grandma was born in Finland. He says she has too much Finn blood. We can't go outside until it gets in the 70s. We can see one of her bird feeders outside so we do get to see other birds and hear them too. Michigan has the craziest weather. We can be 80 one day and 60 the next. Mom hopes it warms up by mid june because her and dad are going camping up north. We will go stay with our cousin Twitch. He is an African Grey. He can talk to us in our noises. He has learned to imitate us perfectly. Hope you have a good day. Mom has to go because grandma's physical therapist will be here soon.

Good morning Mojito. The pinecone are baked at a low enough temperature so they don't burn. If you like the smell of pine they smell good. Some smell more like pine than others. It depends on how much sap they have in them. We didn't get much rain here yesterday. The storms went to the south of us. Mom wishes we would have gotten a little more rain, it was a light enough rain so that it didn't run off and got a chance to soak in. today she won't have to go out and water the gardens and lawn. It is only supposed to be around 58 today. A little on the chilly side. Have a great day, Mojito and Mojito's mommy. We gave you a vote today.

  Good afternoon Mojito
We sent you a vote today. How has the weather been down their? Are you anywhere near the fires? I hope not, that would be scary. We have a severe thunderstorm watch this afternoon. We need the rain. It is hot and humid right now ahead of the storm. You are probably used to hot anf humid where you live too. We get a lot of humidity here because of Lake Michigan to our west. Mom got us some pine cones this weekend. she washed them and then baked them so they sap would harden We love to tear them apart. They make god toys. She went to the cemetery Sunday because it would have been her sonBen's 21st birthday and there are a lot of pine trees there. She got a whole plastic grocery bag full. She also got us some pear tree branches Saturday to chew on. She takes good care of us. she always make sure we have things to keep us happy and healthy. Have a good afternoon.

It is beautiful living in Michigan. The weather isn't always the best but the nature is great. Lake Michigan is so beautiful. Lake Superior is the most beautiful but you can't really swim in it. Even in the hottest part of summer the water is very cold. Mom is a big nature lover. Right now she lives in the city but has made her yard very wildlife friendly. Her and dad want to get back up north in the woods someday. But they are living with dad's mom to care for her. They have been with her for a year now. So needless to say they can wait as long as they have to to move because they will be with her until she's gone and they don't want that to happen yet. You have a great day. :)

We are flying by to give you a vote this morning. Mom is getting her online visiting done before it warms up outside. She likes to spend her time working in the yard. In Michigan we have to take advantage of the sunshine when it is here because it can disappear fast around here. We live about 30 miles east of Lake Michigan and it can cause a lot of clouds and rain. We hope we get to go outdoors today. We have missed hearing the wild birds. We haven't been outside since last summer. Have a good weekend.

  Hello
Mom used to have a bird like you. He was about 20 years old and she had to give him to some other people because she was moving to a place she couldn't keep him. He had two owners that we know of before mom got him. We are two Pacific Parrotlets, mom's kids bought us for here in Aug of 2005. We love her. She takes good care of us and plays with us. We sent a vote your way this morning. You are a very beautiful bird.
