I won a $400 cage at a raffle, which prompted me to get another bird, so I looked around and saw an ad in the paper for congo african greys. I called the breeder, and we decided to meet in a McDonald's parking lot, where she would bring the remaining (6 month old)babies and let me pick. Oscar, whose name was Valentine at the time, stood out, and I went home with yet another member of our flock!.

Hi! My name is Oscar

I am an African Grey from Woodbury, MN.

Ozzie

7 years old   M

African Grey

I like fruit a lot, and sunflower seeds, but mom says I can't have too many of those

I love to hang out at the tops of my cage, and on the kitchen perch so I can look outside.

I don't really have any pet peeves, but mom's pet peeve is when I manage to poop on that little uncovered piece of carpet!

I love how she's patient with me, and she's teaching me every day, whether it's step-up, or "gimme a kiss!"

I'm just learning how to fly corrently, so I will sometimes just take off! Then fall...
And, instead of biting, I'll use my beak to push your finger away if I don't want to be picked up!
.

This is a cat toy? Well, it's a bird toy now!.

  OSCAR!
I did see you pop in and out of the Ball last night...my Mother's laptop was sooooo slow and though I wanted to stop and chat with you, my fiblings were also trying to chat with friends, but I would like to introduce myself now and offer my apologies for not getting to do so last evening. Mom is back on her fast computer which makes life easier for me. You are a FINE looking young bird, and I am happy to visit your page. You are learning to fly are you?...well good luck with that, I never did learn to do that very well, my flight is slow & horizontal, but effective I suppose. I see you have a large and beautiful flock! I hope you and your flock have a wonderful weekend! ~~Rio

Come visit me, Buddy- Thanks so much! I miss you all, Peanut, Rio 7 years on the BC!, Ducky, Fred & Ethyl & Petrie 7 years on the BC!.

  Hey, Oscar!!!!
You have the same name as my Bulldog!!!! Do you know Saint Patrick D'Bird??? Sadly you can't go onto my profile because I don't have a bird. But you are able to leave comments on your own page. Do you want that to be how we communicate???? If you find Patrick tell him to leave a link to his page on yours please.

Come visit me, Bali.

  HI OSCAR
I was flying by to give you a vote and to ask you if you could help us get Lady Bird BOTW. You all helped Buddy and now I would like to see Lady Bird win. She was abused and is a very sweet girl that needs our help. She also has a new sister Dutchess and her mom is looking for advise from anyone that has experience with b&g macaws. She brought her in from an abused home and she would like any advise that anyone could give her. To find her just go to the top of your page and hit the profile button then type in Lady Bird in the left side where it says name. There is two Lady Birds. She is the white cockatoo. Thanks for your help and I hope that you have a great day. Love, Rocky♥ R(*><~)R

  HI OSCAR
As you all know we all stuck together and voted for Braveheart everyday and now he's BOTW. I am hoping we can do it again for Cory. He really deserves it to, he was abused very badly to and he is blind in one eye from being hit so hard in the head and he can't even stretch out his wings because he was kept in a cage way to small. So can you find it in your hearts to vote everyday for him to and lets make him the next BOTW. Thank you very much. Love, Rocky♥ (*><~)

Mom doesn't allow me to have too many sweets either but when my skin siblings are eating, I sneak over and eat their snacks since they are afraid of me and won't pick me up to remove me from their laps or plates. he he he! Mom says I am just being a big bully. Hmmmppfff! if she won't give me my sugar for the day then I must find another way to get it. he he he! I do eat good foods, too. Mom makes us fruit and veggie salads. She also makes this yummy fiesta birdie bread which I cannot get enough of. It is so yummy! Well I must be going. My mom has to finish her wash. How boring! he he he! Squawk at ya later! ~TOOTLES~

  Lettuce...grrrr!
I do not like lettuce. I growl at it. Mom thinks I am weird but hey that stuff is weird. he he he! Mom gave us cooked baby carrots today and I used them to play fetch with my human brother. I kept throwing them on the floor and he kept picking them up. he he he! Of course, Moose had to show off and eat his. He is such a show off like that. Mom promised to buy me papaya today when she went to the store...now that I will eat. YUMMY! I snuck a small bite of my skin brother's cake today. That was pretty good too but when mom saw what I was doing she said no. She is just no fun. Why can't I eat any birthday cake? he he he! Mom claims I have a sweet beak. I have no idea what she means. I think she is telling stories. he he he! Anyway...did you do anything exciting on the 4th? We are having our picnic tomorrow. I hope mom gives me some yummy food to eat. Well I better be going. Mom said she has to start getting ready for the party. Squawk at ya later. TOOTLES

Mom wishes I would just push people's fingers away when I don't want to be held...I am much ruder..I bite. he he he! I don't bite mom though. I let mom do pretty much to me but noone else. I am a big momma baby....a BIG BIG momma baby. he he he! Do you have a favorite fruit? I love when mom makes me a banana and papaya mixture. YUMMY! I also love blueberries. I have been testing cherries but I am not sure about them yet. I have to eat some more....he he he! Do you have any birdie siblings? How do you get along with them? I am sure glad that you joined the channel...welcome. ~TOOTLES~
