  Your color is beautiful
Hi there,

What a beautiful bird you are.
I too, am a beautiful green parrotlet.
My family loves me very much.
I was their Christmas gift in 2006.
I'm still working to train my owners.
They are doing very well on the food lessons.
I get to taste everything on their plate.
They know I really enjoy pasta best of all.
They hide my food in different places almost
every day. I have to hunt and forage for it and
I just love to do that. Sometimes it's inside boxes,
or mixed with small stones on top of it, or in
my food ferris wheel, or covered with a paper napkin.
They sure test my hunting mental skills, and I
get more exercise that way too.

bye for now/Sweetie-I don't have a website.
I live in Henderson, Nevada.

Janet, Henderson, NV.

  About me...
I am a beautiful Male Spectacled Parrotlet. DID YOU KNOW... that spectacled parrotlets will eventually become mentally retarded if you don't eat with them? I love to eat with my people and when they bring any food near my cage i jump right into my bowl up to my ankles and CHOW DOWN. I feel like i've been banished from my flock when people eat without me. I am an extremely social bird and need to be understood and loved. I can say many words and i'm only 9months old. I now have my adult feathers - as a baby i was mostly green. Now i have a beautiful cobalt rump and turquoise eye ring. Look at my pic and you will see that birdies can smile. Aren't i cute? Vote for me! Press the vote button above. Thanks!

Come visit me, Gherkin.
