Hi! My name is Buddy

I am a Cockatiel from Staten Island, NY.

Mommies Boy

17 years old   M

Cockatiel

Popcorn, millett

I love to be on top of my cage. I also like to be on my mom's shoulder talking to her

My sister the cat

She gives me lots of kisses. She taught me to talk, now I don't shut up. I have a whole act that I do with my mom.

I over preen myself.

Live and let live, so what if the cat is frustrated.

  Hello Buddy,
It's very nice to meet you. I had no idea that JJ and Sadie and a birdy brother.
Thanks for flying by with Hatchday wishes and a BOTD vote.

I've had a greYt day. It started with banana and blueberries in my oatmeal. I ate every little bit. It was delicious.

Then I got some good screaming in while looking out the window, before taking a long and energetic bath. Even though I get showered everyday with the spray bottle, my feathers only get really soft when I bathe in my tub. I was given a whole mandarin orange. It was so scrumptious that very little, if any, was wasted.

I spent most of the afternoon napping then ate a delicious supper of scrambled egg with beets in it. It was a very pretty colour. The windows were opened to let in the fresh air and I sat near the window chanting, "Pengweeen, weeeeen, weeeeen....."

There is still some more in this day to eat up attention and be given treats. I plan to milk it for all it's worth. I've yet to be given a gift, but Mama says when she gets the chance she'll make me some of my foraging pockets, which consist of scraps of material sewn into little pouches, filled with pieces of wood, ribbons with beads strung on them and dried pasta and corn. They keep me occupied for hours and it's been ages since I've seen new ones.

If you'd like to see my baby pictures, (how embarrassing) the first three in my photo gallery are of me at 12 weeks old. Mama thought they'd be fitting since it's my hatchday.

I'm afraid I do not have a hatchday video, but I do have several on here, the last one is called "Greyscale," if you'd like to see it.

Thank you again for flying by and making my hatchday a wonderful experience,

Taking you vote button with me,

Poirot

  HI BUDDY!
Just browsing thru, saw you lived in Staten Island just like we do, and had to stop & say hello. You look so much like me, looking at your picture's like looking into one of my mirrors! And all those toys & cuttlebones, looks like your mom really knows how to take care of you. We notice your mom hasn't blogged for a while - we hope all is well with you guys.

Mom has finally let Lily & I have a clutch, and will only place the babies with knowledgable people (like your mom!) who she knows will take good care of them.

BTW, there's a bird club on Staten Island which will next meet on Thurs., Nov 19 at the Blue Heron Nature Center at 7:30 pm, and your mom's invited!

Well, got to fly now, hope to hear from you,

Love, Treasure

Come visit me, Monique, Treasure, Lily : Thanking all of voting me BOTW!, Eloise, Simon, Mojo, Quentin & Bungee.

I have not been able to be sending messages as my Mom and Grandma have been going back and forth to Bobbis for 7 weeks helping to pack stuff and carry it. Hard work, now Grandma is exhausted. It is cold here, supposed to snow next week, guess that will cause people to spend more money as the snow will remind them Christmas is near. Hope you have a Happy Saturday. Tweet dreams.xoxoxoxo

It is so nice to hear from you. Is it miserably hot there, it is here. My Mom had gone to 4H camp for 5days and now afternoon summer camp, Grandma wants her to spend less time on the computer and phone. Hope you have a wonderful Tuesday.
