Hi! My name is Myrtle

I am a Dusky-Headed Conure from tuckahoe, NY.

Myrtle the turtle I am very sorry to inform everyone of the passing of our wee baby, it happened sudden while I was holding her and talking to our vet who is the best in the world, it was a natural death that we could not of seen coming or been able to help her, we have shed so many tears over the past months and miss her alot, but she will always be in our hearts and thoughts and we know she is waiting for us in a better place, RIP my baby girl xxx

8 years old   F

Dusky-Headed Conure

almonds, apples, but mostly anything, she loves food

on the window.
on my mum and dads fingers.
inside my mums shirt as she makes dinner


taking me away from food I really should not be eating and being left alone

she tickles me, gives me great treats , nice showers and talks to me all the time. and does not get to mad when I get naughty and bite her and she bought me a really long ladder that reaches from the floor to my house, so when I need alittle snack, drink or nap I just have to walk up there, I love ladders to play on.

lying on my back to get my tummy tickled..

life is way to short to not have a bird in it.

  Hello Myrtle!
We were checking out the pics of the other Duskies on the BC and we just wanted to say, LOVE THE HATS! Of course, there is no way we would let our mom put any of that silliness even NEAR our heads! But it works on you! If you are in the area, stop by and check out our pics as well (no hats tho!). Fellow Duskies, Barney and Freddy

  HI MYRTLE
Thanks and you are very cute to. I love all your pictures and you have some cool hats. Was it your hatchday? I see you with a birthday hat on. How does your mom get you to keep them on? Yeah I love my fuzzy hut. If anyone tries to touch it, I will attack them. "IT'S MINE!" (giggles) Our holidays were good. We stayed home and celebrated with my mom and grandparents. We are staying at my grandparents house temperaraly until my mom gets her own place again. She had cancer and now she can't work so she is waiting for her SSI to start up.. Thats a long wait! WOW! A heated perch! Your tootsies will stay warm now. Your cousins must really love you. Rocky and I are the only birds in the family so my mom spoils us. (giggling) Well I better get going so Rocky can get back on here, he's always on here, big brothers, Geez! Take care and have a good weekend. Love, Tootes♥ (><)

  A note from Sierra to all of her friends
I just wanted to stop by and wish all my friends here on Bird Channel a nice weekend. Today is a very special day for me and my Erin. We are celebrating my 1 year of coming to live with Erin!! We are so happy today! It's seems like Erin and I have been together forever, but yet we both can't believe this day is here. It was an uphill battle (guess mom named me right, Sierra means jagged mountain range.) Just to think a year ago I was afraid of everyone now I have nothing to fear, well almost. Erin says I have grown by leaps and bounds, this past month have have also decided its okay to let select people hold me. We both feel so triumphant! It's so wonderful to live a normal happy life. Today we shall celebrate with some birdie bread and new toys!! I can't wait to get the party started :) we will take pictures and post them at a later date. So in honor of me please do something fun with your parrot today! Birdie hugs <3 Sierra

Come visit me, Sierra & Sam.

  Hi Myrtle
Nani here.....my Mom got lucky with me and Rocco. We are still young (under a year)and Rocco is only 3 months older than I am. We get along real well and do share the same cage.
For you sharing the same cage may not be good...but just having another bird to "talk" to may be just what you need. But you will have to learn and share your humans....Hope all works out for you, keep us posted. Birdie Hugs, Nani And thank you for the vote! right back at you!!

Come visit me, Nani, Rocco & Kai.

  Hi Myrtle
Just wanted to fly by and see how things were going for you. Did your Mom help you calm down a bit? Let me know how you're doing.
My Mom and Dad got a friend for me, so I wouldn't get lonely while they're at work all day. Her name is Nani, and she's a very pretty Sun Conure. Hope to hear from you soon. Birdie Hugs Rocco

  Hello Myrtle
Duskies are my very favorite conure. They have such beautiful grey eyes, and are calm and intelligent. My Dusky, Pippa, was the greatest husband ever to Huckleberry (his sun conure wife). He fed the babies and fed the mother too. What a great bird. Wish ours could meet.

Come visit me, Ringo aka Chicker, Pippa, Huckleberry & Dajee.

  Hi Myrtle
Well, My mom's not quite sure what your mom could do. Maybe if she's having guests over, that might be a good time for you to nap in your "condo" (as I like to call it)....do you have a "condo" cover? That's the only thing she can think of....she knows that you would likely want to be more sociable....but sometimes new people are too stimulating. Hope this helps. Rocco

Come visit me, Nani, Rocco & Kai.

  Kelly here...
Just flappin' by to say Hi! I see you like to lie on your back and have your tummy rubbed. My Mom wishes I'd be willing to do the same, but I'm sorry, that's just a scary position for me. It's too much like the time-to-trim-the-toenails-position! Yuke! I do like to lean up again my mom's shoulder and let her scratch my head but she chuckles at my constant awareness of what's going on in the room! I don't want to miss out on a thing! Hope all is deee-lightful with you, Myrtle! A V4U from K!

Come visit me, Kelly.
