I adopted Buddy from a lady I work with. She originally bought the bird for her son but they didn't get along. Plus she thought the bird was too loud, messy and nippy. I never had a pet bird before so I considered the matter carefully for several days. Anyway, I'm happy to say that Buddy has been with me for a couple years now and she seems very happy... and me too.. Awards

Hi! My name is Buddy

I am a Cockatiel from Surprise, AZ.


12 years old   F


Pasta, unsalted cashews, popcorn and of course millet.

I love to hang out with my daddy. If not with him however, I'm content to play on one of the cages or playstands. Of course the sofa or lazyboy makes a nice hang out spot too.

I don't care much for the new bird in the house. He's a Red Bellied Poicephalus named Rocky. He's younger than me and a real nuisance. He chases me around and if he wasn't so slow and clumsy he might actually catch me some day.

I love my daddy because he loves me very much and gives me good scratches on my head and neck. He's protected and comforted me late at night when I've had night frights. My owner has never had a pet bird before me so I've had to teach him a lot of hard lessons. Luckily, he's patient and a quick learner.

I like to sleep on top of my food dish and leave a nice little mess for my daddy every morning. I also like to sit on my daddy's shoulder and give his ear a wet willy..

Why walk when you can fly!!.

  Hello from Daisy!
Hey Buddy, I've talked alot to your brother, Rocky, but I don't believed I've said hello to you yet. Well I don't want you to feel left out, so I came by to give you a vote. I just noticed something on your bio that we seem to have in common....I often sleep on either my food or water dish, too. Mommy finally wised up and takes my food out of it now just before I go to sleep, but she still leaves the water. That dish is easier to clean up anyway. You sure look like a sweet little girl. Bye for now. ~~ Daisy

  Hi there
Hey a local Arizonian! We are from AZ. too. Nice to see you. I have cage mates next to me that are Normal Greys- there are two of them and a Lutino together! All Girls!! Mom loves us tiels! You are sure a pretty one! So I have it pretty good here.....4 female tiels and I'm the only male! I hear Mom talking about getting another male for the "Young Ladies" next to me and Sunshine!
You're lucky to have a nice mommy who likes to give you scritches too! Mommy's are wonderful when they finally figure out what we like and don't like! Nice talking to you.

Come visit me, Joseph & Keeya Tucson.

  Hi Buddy
You sure are a beautiful tiel. I used to sit and sleep on one of my food cups. My mon just moved my food to another one so I can sleep where I want and not mess up my food and seed. Ops.. I just walked on mom's keyboard
I can type but I sure can't spell. Here's a vote for you!

Come visit me, In Memory of Dusty (a white faced cockatiel).

  Hi Brian
You are welcome for the help, anytime. So how are buddy and rocky doing? Sam and Sierra are good. Sam must have gotten spooked in the night by a talking toy that I had in his cage. This morning when he woke up Sam was real happy and talking lots but when i looked in the bottom of his cage he had lost 4 tail feathers and a wing feather that had quite a bit of blood in it. He wanted nothing to do with the talking toy so i took it out. My sister works at petsmart we had 30% off day there so i got some new toys for the birds and a little was fun shopping. spoiling Fids is the best! Heres a vote for today. ~ Erin, Sam & Sierra

Come visit me, Sierra & Sam.

  Hi Buddy & Family
We had to stop by your page, we met rocky and now it is time to meet you! We are glad you hear you have found a home that is perfect for you. Sam used to sleep on his food dish and leave me presents every morning. I got tired of this so got him a hooded dish for his pellet dish since i don't take that dish out as much. then i got this little hood it looks the a roof to a house. Sam loves to sleep under it at night and is much happier with it than sleeping on his dish here is a link to the site if you want to check out the little hood i am talking about. php?product=Poop%20Cover&searchlink=yes&search=POO- P%20COVER&page=1 this link is the one Sam likes to sleep under. heres like the dish we use for pellets I chose this one because he flips pellets every where besides poop his came from petsmart though and is plain. there are cheaper hooded ones that are plastic but Sam ate a plastic one...hehe hope this helps if you were looking to stop the pooping in the dish :)

Come visit me, Sierra & Sam.
