My mom bought Sammy to replace our beagle, whom we'd recently given away. He more than replaced my dog. He was cute, and he had this look in his eyes that said, "I like you. I think you'll do." He and I have been best friends ever since! He's been such a sweety, and his personality amazes me. He's a character, that's for sure. I never thought I'd be a "bird person", but here I am, and I'm loving every single second!!!.

Hi! My name is Sammy

I am a Cockatiel from Greensboro, NC.

Baby, The Orange Cheeker

17 years old   M

Cockatiel

Nutri-Berries, Nutri-An cakes, the occasional millet berry or two

top of cage, kitchen table, my friends's shoulders

wandering little hands/fingers, balloons

She gives me head scratches and lots of healthy treats. She knows my likes and dislikes, so we really along. Sometimes I'm loud, and she'll threaten to cover my cage, but she can't resist "the look" that I give her. She's cool because she knows that cockatiels are the best. She's my best friend, and her life would be very boring without me!

hanging upside down when being sprayed, eating one kind of food at a time out of my dish.

Remember... The Cockatiel Is ALWAYS Right!!!.

Happy Halloween! I'm so sorry about Sammy passing away. This is Pippin the miniature horse. I'm Pringle's and Poirot's cousin. I just wanted to let you know that there is another video of me on YouTube. I'm doing my tricks and pulling my cart with the little dogs on it. I hope you'll come and see it. I'm sure you'll enjoy it. Why don't you come and visit me on the horsechannel? My number is 11626. Here's a vote for you.

  Sad News...
Hi guys! I've got some sad news. Sammy passed away on October 11, at around 6:35 p.m. This is a really sad time, but I'm glad that Sammy was put into my life, and I will always, always remember him. I'll still be keeping up his profile as I find more pictures and such, but it'll be just me... I'm hoping to eventually look into getting another bird, but not right now. Please continue to visit, and I'm glad we have made so many friends!

Come visit me, Sammy & Ivy.

  It's been a heck of a summer
So it's the end of the month, and fall is finally starting to settle upon us here. Summer went by so fast for me. I lost my second home and found my third. I've been with my new mom now for about five months and I've really started to settle in. The leaves are starting to change color. Lots of red, orange and yellow. It's very pretty in NH this time of year. Apple picking is coming to a close so mom is hoping to get some picking in soon (not that I like apples all that much, but they are one of Pippins favorites). The weather is surprisingly still very warm, but mom and I hear that is soon to change. Whether we like it or not snow is on it's way, brrr! We've has some baby birds come and go and now the house is relatively quiet again. I hope you've had a wonderfull summer and fall, and I'll talk to you soon. Ollie~

  Oh Sammie
Hey there, how has your summer been? Mine has been Hot, Hot, Hot! Have you done anything fun? Pippin is molting right now so his little feathers are getting everywhere. They are even in my cage. I'm thankfully not going through a molt...yet. I just have a few new feathers coming in on my head. This is Pippin's first big one. Wish him luck! I'll talk to you later.

  Hiya!
Hi, and thanks for visiting me. I hope you like my pictures and my story. My mom is really busy so she doesn't have as much free time as she used to, but if anyone would like to come and talk, that'd be great. Even though I'm not a big talker, I love it when my friends come and chat!! So swing by whenever you like and stay for as long as you'd like. See ya!

  Hello Sammy!
Why don't you try sending that picture in? It is so cute. Thank you for the congratulations and votes. We are both honoured, first to have our picture chosen for the calendar and secondly to be voted as BOTW. It will be a great way for other birdies to find out about the calendar. Poirot and I also have our regualar profiles up on a different account. You can find mine by typing 8908 into the address bar above instead of the number there. We hope you have a wonderful week. Here is a vote. Pringle

Come visit me, Mahatma and Gandhi.

  Hello Sammy!
I do hope you enjoy your calendar when you get it. Mama had two good pictures to choose from. The others all had one of us in the wrong position. I had turned around or Poirot was eating the brush. I really like your last picture where you are whispering secrets. You are both cute in it. I hope you have a good Sunday. Here is a vote. Pringle

Come visit me, Mahatma and Gandhi.

  About that human...
In the last two (NEW!!!) photos, I'm on my human brother's shoulder. In the first one, I've got my back to the camera. In the second, I'm "giving him a kiss". (Don't worry, he's super gentle for his age, and-with constant supervision-can be trusted with me.) He can scare me sometimes, but he's learned to keep his space. Isn't great that little kids can be taught how handle birds? I think that everyone should have a chance to interact with us birds, don't you???

Come visit me, Sammy & Ivy.

  Hi Sammy
Thanks for stopping in. Yes Digger was a sweetie and we miss him a lot. My sister Kacey is still young and must be watched over. She is a special needs birdy. She can't fly due to a broken right wing and she had damaged tail feathers from babyhood, they won't grow. She also has weak feet and can't grip very well. I took over the job of protecting her, she has grown on me. You look like a birdy who knows what he wants. I can see it in your eye. I always give my family looks when needed. We must keep our humans in line. lol Take care, Maxi and flock

  Votes in Memory of Digger
Hi Sammy, I see you are a senior tiel also. I am soon to be 15 years old and I'm feisty as ever. My younger sister tiel, Kacey has shown me how to be young again and to enjoy playing with toys, I was never a toy bird. I am here to ask all birdies on The BC to vote for my brither tiel Digger for bird of the week. It was 2 years ago June 11th that Digger passed over the Rainbow Bridge and mom has been really missing him. It would be a great tribute to his life to make bird of the week. So please stop in and vote for him and pass it along to all your bird friends. Thank you, Maxi and flock
