Caique from Pensacola, FL
In Loving Memory of my Mack

UPDATE: Mack passed away on Friday, Dec. 7, 2007 - I had a necropsy done and all the pathology work ups done... no disease or injury apparent. My veterinarian has no idea why Mack passed away.
I always wanted a caique. During Hurricane Ivan in Sept 2004, we lost our home and had to move about five times and I lost my African Grey - I was heartbroken! Eventually, I found a breeder close by and Mack picked me out and I also got picked out by Holly (She's an African Grey) but that's another story!

Hi! My name is In Loving Memory of my Mack

I am a Caique from Pensacola, FL.

Crazy Man,
Upside Down Clown

11 years old   M


all kinds of fruits and veggies, corn, orange juice - I will try almost anything

All over the house, I love to climb the drapes (but Mom gets a little upset!) and I also hang out with Louis ( another Caique - rescued from Hurricane Katrina! and Dad's African Grey - Holly - We are all buddies!

When I am hair surfing I do not like being bothered!

My mom loves me no matter how much trouble I cause and she always talks to me even though we have lots of other fids in our house

I chase my Mom's chihuahuas and I love take things and hop up and down the length of the counter with it while she works there.

"If I want it, Mommy will get it!".

  Hi Mack
The Birdchannel is looking for stories about Caiques, so maybe you can tell your story. My mom told a little about me. Even though you were at the bridge, I bet you have some Caique fun to share. I would love to read a story about your life, even though it was cut short. Let's Celebrate your life, Birdchannel style. Great Big Birdie hugs to you~~Harley

  I am so sorry for your loss
I want to make you feel better. Here is a Poem for youJust this side of Heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When a bird dies that has been especially close to someone here, that bird goes to the Rainbow Bridge.

At the Rainbow Bridge there are meadows and hills and beautiful trees of all kinds where all our special friends can fly and climb, hang and flap, hop and run, jump and play, squawk and squeal and sing together.

There is plenty of good food, including grapes and peanuts, ice cream and cheese, spaghetti and especially lots of pizza. There is crystal clear water in brooks and springs are filled with water as well as every kind of delicious fresh fruit juice.

One warm spring even runs full of the coffee they can now drink their fill of without hearing a single no-no. There is lots of glorious sunshine, and sweet warm rain when they want it and our friends are warm and comfortable and totally at peace.

All the birds who had been ill or old are restored to health and vigor and to their natural incredible beauty. Their feathers shine, their wing feathers are whole, and their eyes gleam once again with vitality.

Those who were hurt or maimed or ignored or broken-hearted are made whole and strong and free of fear again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days gone by.

The birds are happy and content..... except for one small thing - they each miss someone very special to them who had to be left behind when the bird returned home. Still they all fly and play happily and safely and noisily together - even the grouchiest greys and orneriest senegals, the tiniest finches and the grandest macaws.

But the day comes for each bird when he suddenly stops and looks far into the distance. His body freezes and his bright eyes are intent as he watches and listens in silence. Suddenly he begins to fly from the group, soaring over the green grass, his wings flapping harder and harder!

You have been spotted - and he shrieks to you and then calls your name and his own and cries again and again and as he rushes toward you.

When you and your bird finally meet, you cling to each other in joyous reunion, knowing you will never be parted again.

Your face and your fingers - and even your toes - are covered with beak nibbles and soft ecstatic kisses. Your hair is preened by that special beak, and his head bends under your fingers to invite your touch. Your hands again find their way under beloved wings, to caress the downy softness beneath.

You look once more into the trusting eyes of your companion-so long gone from your physical life on earth, but never for an instant absent from your heart.

Your tears of joy are gently brushed away by those beloved wings... and feeling immersed once more in total contentment and love, you and your beloved companion cross the Rainbow Bridge together.... I hope I can entertain you and give you a little Caique relief sometime~~Harley

I just thought I'd mention that I like to chase our chihuahua also! He's scared of me because I bite his tail!

  Wow! An aviary full of Sennies! That's got to be some wild fun. 8> How many feathered friends are in your flock? In my nest, there's just me. Mommy used to bird sit for a couple of friends, and those visitors would always stay in a separate room (mom called it quarantine.) But I would do all I could to hunt them down--even if I had to go on foot--just so I could make sure they knew I was the top bird! Mommy thinks I would not be nice to more feathered friends here. Hrmph! How else will I create my flock of loyal subjects? V2u and ciao for now!

  Hi Mack!
Welcome to the flock! We are very happy that you found such a great flock to live with. I'm (Michaela) the imp in my family. Is your Mom able to watch when you hang upside down and flap? My Mom has to look away because she says one day I'm going to fall. It really makes her nervous when I hang by one toe flapping and screeching! I can't help but laugh at her.

Come visit me, Michaela, Cuddles, Nicky & Lilly.

Welcome to Bird Channel! I'm new to Bird Channel too! I have a couple of other Caique friends and looking forward to making more. Mom had lost her bird to illness and I picked her out like you did your mom. I'm still a baby - but I'm keeping Mom on her toes. Here's a vote just for you ~ Your buddy, Pico

  Hi Mack
Nice to meet you! You seem like your a happy bird in a happy home. Be careful climbing drapes. My bird Pudgie likes to climb on wires or strings hanging from the blinds because the previous owners would hang a rope through out their house so he could follow from room to room. I have to watch him closely. Most of the time he is a good bird. Ok byebye

Come visit me, Pudgie & Treasure.

  Welcome to the channel Mack!
Hello my name is Ollie, just wanted to pop in and say hello. Great to hear that you found such a great home. Me I don't like fruits or veggies very much. Mom tries everyday... but no thank you! Sometimes she'll sneak some in when she is letting me have "human" food. But mostley I just like my pellets and the occasional nut! Here is a vote for you. Stop by and visit any time you want.


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