Cosmo is a rescue bird. I found him in a dark cage on the floor from a woman only interested in breeding him. He was just a baby, not old enough to breed, and very scared. He hid in his nestbox for a couple of days before trusting his new home..

Hi! My name is Cosmo

I am a Peach-Faced Lovebird from Milford, NH.

Peach-Faced Lovebird

Yellow delicious apples, millet, popcicle sticks to rip apart.

We put a fresh coconut basket up on the wall with a ladder running up to it. He loves to roost there and pull it apart. He also hides his treats and toys up there. He has a perch close to a lamp that he loves to sleep on and we joke that it's his "tanning bed".

Budgies entering his territory. His left wing sometimes bothers him. He plucks it beyond recovery every spring and gives the feathers to Loki, his companion.

Even though I'm not the oldest or biggest bird in the house, mom treats me as alpha bird. I tell her when to put the birds to bed and she jumps to my command!

He is a master popcicle stick to toothpick artist. It's a gift! He squeals with delight when he sees one coming his way. We bought a box of 1000 craft popcicle sticks to accomodate him last year and we're almost done with the box! He also knows when all the birds go to bed down to the exact minute and chirps to remind us when to put which bird to bed. It's uncanny!.

If a popcicle stick isn't broken, I must fix it!.

  Feeling Flighty
Lately, I've been feeling less independant and wanting mom to carry me on her shoulder all day around the house like we used to before Oscar came to live with us. I like to make him jealous!

Come visit me, Moonbeam, Oscar, Cosmo, Loki, Kipper, Tofu, Lemondrop & Dobby.

  Happy Spring!
Its the first day of spring and the sunshine is out this morning to hit the couch and warm me up while I play! Mom gave me my morning popsicle stick to shred, but I'm having fun just running around the couch taking in the sunshine!

Come visit me, Moonbeam, Oscar, Cosmo, Loki, Kipper, Tofu, Lemondrop & Dobby.

  Hello cutie pie!
Hello Cosmo, my name is Pippin. You are so cute. My new brother Ollie was just visiting Oscar. Hey did you know we're almost neighbors. I live in NH too. Although I will say I don't like the winters becuase I don't get to go out in the winter. But the summers are nice and we live right by a river so sometimes mom will take me down there in my carrier and I talk to all the birds that live down there. Do you ever get to go out? Oh and tell your mom she is wonderful for rescuing you! I'm not adopted but my two brothers are. Here is a vote for you buddy!

Pippin <3

Come visit me, Brett - Greater Vasa Parrot, Pippin & Ollie (the bird formerly known as Harry).
