Hi! My name is sunny

I am an African Grey from houghton lake, MI.

he does not have a lot of nick names but every so often I call him bobo

23 years old   M

African Grey

peanut buter bananna cracker sandwich, topped off with almonds.

he likes to hang out in northern Michigan, some people think I'm a yooper .

he throws temper tantrum when I move furniture in the room . he likes things in the same places all the time .

my owner take me for long rides in the car to upper northern michigan, some times I go to where she works for the day. On good day only if I behave I am able to play on the hand built play gym in the room .

he likes to chew paper up in the bottom of his cage and he makes a lot of noise at midnight, he likes doing all sorts of noise especially the radar detector..

So sorry to hear about your computer. I sure hope that you are getting it all figured out. You guys have had a bad winter this year. I was born in Madison Heights and then raised in Gaylord so I know how cold it gets there and how much snow you all get to. I don't miss the snow at all. I have been living in FL. for about 15 years now and I would never move back to MI. it's way to cold! I sure hope that you start getting some warm weather soon. I'll try to send some your way. So Sunny has picked up some bad words, shame shame, Sunny! I have been thinking about getting an african grey. They are very smart birds and they are so funny to. They sure have a mind of their own. Well it was nice hearing from you. I hope that you and Sunny have a good day! Love, Rocky & Stacy(mom) ♥ R(*><~)R xoxoxoxoxoxo

Well our new year is going pretty good, I hope that it gets better, like a new cage better. hee hee!!! I need a bigger cage because santa brought me a huge hut and it's to big for my cage so now my mom has to work on getting me a bigger cage... I'm finally able to go outside today and I am having so much fun in the sunshine =] Well sweetie, I better get going so I can catch up on my writting. Take care and I hope that you all stay warm.

It's been in the low 80's during the day and 70's at night. It's been some unusual weather this year.. We fish on the piers and the pelicans are still there trying to eat the fish. We have caught some pretty big fish this year. I even caught a 4 foot hammer head shark, boy was that a good fight! So how is your hand? I know how hard these birds can bite. Rocky bit threw my hand once and that smarted... So what ever happened to the cat? Was it tested for rabies? I sure hope it didn't have rabies.. 20 stitches is alot from a cat, I hope you are ok... I know right were Houghton lake is and I can't believe that you used to live in Madison Heights. What a small world! I even know where Bishop foly is.. This is soo neat. Do you know where Utica is? Thats where I lived for the first 5 years of my life. We lived on Deshon off of Hall road. Well I better get going. I am way behind on my writing. It is really nice talking to you. Take care and I hope your hand is ok. Love, Stacy & Rocky♥ (*><~)

  A Day for Giving Thanks <~)
Hello, Sunny. Rose’s Mom here (~.~). Rosalie has asked me to deliver a Thanksgiving Day message to her friends, and I must admit that I appreciate the opportunity to visit all of you as well. She brought many blessings and much wisdom to my life, and I have been only too happy to share both with you all. So without further ado, I give you Rose ~~~~ ONE MONTH AGO Thanksgiving day, I left all of you, My Beloved Friends, for the Rainbow Bridge. ~~ You have been so warm and loving, thoughtful and supportive. I am at a loss for words (Hard to believe of ME, isn’t it?!) to express my deeply heartfelt appreciation for your friendship. I have been able to read all of your blogs on the ‘HeavenNet’ up here at the Rainbow Bridge, and I have seen all of the lovely tributes you have created, and the expressions of sympathy you have shared with each other, as well as with my mom and family. I have had the honor and privilege of receiving other friends into our flock up here, “just this side of Heaven”. And we want you all to know that we are well, whole, and happy to be awaiting the day together when we are each reunited with those of you who have loved us. ~~ I did a little meddling in Mom’s business a few days ago (as was always my habit), and made sure that she saw some words that would make her stop and look at Thanksgiving a little differently than usual this year. “When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.” ~ Kahlil Gibran. ~~ There is much to be grateful for this year. Mom has been a part of a journal writing class at one of her bible studies, and her homework for this week is to ’write about things that you are grateful for’. Her group leader left everybirdy with this reminder: “Gratitude is the forgotten factor in happiness!” That must be why we wish everyone a ‘Happy Thanks-giving’. ~<~)~ [You can see a pictorial version of Rose’s message in her photo gallery at the bottom of her page, courtesy of her Auntie Amy, Me Morgan’s mom.]

  In Appreciation <~)
It is difficult to sit in front of the computer, and type in these silly blog boxes without using Rosalie’s voice. She has been my inspiration, my heart, my light for more than 10 years. Even the cats are looking for her in her cage. ~~ I was reminded, in the early hours of this morning, of a quote that really hadn’t made much sense to me, until now. Rosalie helped me understand: “Hope is a thing with feathers that perches in the soul.” ~ Anonymous. ~~ You all have been so kind, so welcoming, so loving. We have truly been blessed to become a part of your family. Your kind and thoughtful expression of sympathy is helping to heal our broken hearts. ~~ We invite you to “Come Visit” Rose’s page again, and often if you’d like, to help us continue to celebrate a lifetime of loving and being loved by our precious Rosalie. ~~ Rose’s two fisters, Ruby Francesca Begonia and Leah Danielle Sharon, have their own pages here on the BirdChannel, and we will welcome your visits there as well. ~~ Again, thank you for your love and prayers for Rosalie and her family. ~~ Eva, Dan, `U´Ruby, and <°ÇLeah

  Good Morning, Sunny
Rose’s mom here. Rosalie is, once again, hospitalized. At this point, her life is not immediately threatened, although what we are dealing with is serious. I have posted a note on her page giving a brief explanation of what has happened to date, if you would like to learn the details. Please keep her in your prayers. Many thanks, Eva

  `Ǖ´ Extry!! Extry!! Read All About It! <~)
I’ve got a baby sis, and I’m gonna SHOUT IT!!! ~~ I’m sorry I haven’t been in touch with you like I shoulda been recently; like I woulda LIKED; like I think I OUGHTA! This summer has been really BIG for me!! It’s my first summer in the South. It’s the first time I’ve EVER had my own web page. It’s the first time Mom and I have ever had to ‘play Nurse’ for my Dad. A-N-D… it’s the first baby MACAW sister I’ve ever gotten! (Wait for it…it’s comin’. I promise!) ~~ We’re all having a challenge getting used to the climate here in SC (compared to what I’ve known all my life up in MI). When I first got down here, it seemed really neat to be able to go outside for a walk in March and April. Now, I can’t even imagine how hot a 117° heat index feels ‘cause Mom won’t let us out in it! (Now that I think about it, SHE doesn’t go out in it either!) ~~ Mom and I have been havin’ SO MUCH FUN meetin’ all our new f[eathe]riends, Dad’s beginnin’ to EXPECT to find us in front of the computer whenever he loses sight of us (or in the middle of the night, when he gets up to go potty!). And I know that you know that we just don’t know how to send SHORT notes! (Case in point: THIS ONE!) ~~ Then there was Dad’s gall-dern bladder exor-cision the first part of July. Man! Did he take a looong time getting’ back to work after that one. And, o’course, Yours Truly got to bein’ his favorite care taker during his recovery. I’ll tell ya a secret: I think he took a long time to heal ON PURPOSE, ‘cause he liked the brand of TLC he got from Mom and me. ~~ And the toughest part of the summer has been waiting (until Dad was better enough) to be able to bring home my new baby Green-Winged Macaw sister!!! Her name is Ruby Francesca Begonia!! And she was hatched May 3, 2006! (Mom’s birthday is May 2! Neat, huh?!) ~~ Last week, I got to go stay with her (in the cage next to her) at the bird store where she has been livin’ until we brought her home with us. My best pal, Rainbow, the Harlequin Macaw, called it ‘Camp Get Acquainted’! And get acquainted, WE DID!! While I was at camp, Mom and Dad got us both new cages and set ‘em up in our living room on either side of the computer so’s we can each dictate our correspondence to our BirdChannel friends right from the comfort of our own cribs. So Mom got to work, once Rubes was home, makin’ up a brand new web page just for the Rubicube. And THAT’s really the reason for my note today. We want to invite all my buddies, my pals, my friends to stop by Ruby’s page and say “Hi” to the new baby. You’ll like her. She’s CUTE!!! ~~ Thanks so much for stayin’ in touch with us. We plan to be back on top of all our correspondence again, startin’ now. After you visit my new sis, stop by and see me. I’ll be lookin’ for ya! ~<~)~ PS: How are Mother and Dad?

  Hello pretty parrot
Hi my name is Ollie, you left me a message on my page... but I think you ment to leave it to Gunner perhaps, perhaps not. Anyway I thought I would introduce myself. Northern Michigan must get really cold in the winter, Brrrr. Southern NH does too. But the summers are nice and my room faces the sun so I get all the rays I want. Hope your having a good Friday the 13th. :) Tall to you later!


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

  It's nice in da UP, eh?
Hi there Sunny boy! Thank you so much for stopping by on the holiday last week, and please accept my humble apology for my not coming by sooner. (My dad had some outpatient surgery on Thurs. and Mom hasn't really had much time to type for me in the last few days.)~~ Mom said that reading your profile made her feel like we were still living in MI. I think she misses it more than she's willing to admit sometimes. We've been living in SC since mid-January this year, and it is one tough adjustment to the different climate down here, even for me and I'm supposed to be a tropical bird!~~ I think that I'm going to have Mom make me one of your peanut butter/banana/cracker sanddwiches. I love peanut butter, and bananas are one of me absolute favorites, but I can't say as I've ever had them TOGETHER. I like the idea of adding almonds, but I hope you won't be offended if I pass on the baby food.~~ Let me add my 'Welcome to the BirdChannel' to those who've already visited you. I hope you have lots of fun making all kinds of new friends (including this Blue & Gold)! And, of course, here is a welcome vote to add to your collection. -<`)-
