My owner had wanted a pet bird for a long time, so he finally gave in and went to the bird store. He saw many birds there, and even held a few of them. When he held me, he just knew that I was the one he wanted to take home..

Hi! My name is Smokie

I am a Lovebird from Tuscaloosa, AL.

"Squeaky"

7 years old   M

Lovebird

Spray millet and seed. I started to try spagetti, but it's not a favorite yet.

I love spending time on top of my cage and on shoulders. I'm happy any time I'm with my humans.

I don't like the dog very much. He tries to sniff me, and its kinda scary. I also hate when the water is running in the bathroom. I don't know exactly what it is, but it makes me scream a lot.

He spends lots of time with me outside my cage, and he teaches me new tricks. Recently, I learned how to target a pointer and step-up. I'm currently trying to learn how to shake hands and wave.

I have a fetish for ear lobes. I will chew on them until the humans just can't stand any more.

I'm still new to the household, so certain things make me feel uneasy--especia- lly the big bad Labrador they have in the house.
.

It's better to beg forgiveness than ask permission.

(Just FYI) I'm a "slate" whitefaced lovebird, hatched on April 25 2007.

  SAD NEWS
Alex the famous Grey who worked with Dr. Irene Pepperberg, died this morning. Dr. Pepperberg must be absolutely devastated. I have copied what it says on the Alex Foundation website.--- We are deeply saddened to announce Alex died this morning of unknown causes. We will have a formal press release on Monday when we know the cause of death. He was absolutely fine yesterday and he was found dead this morning. Dr. Pepperberg will take the weekend to mourn his death. We hope to have more information on Monday We miss him so much. Thank you, Arlene Levin-Rowe - Pepperberg Lab Manager and the Pepperberg Lab Staff

  Greetings From Rocky
Hi Smokie,,
Whew,,, 100 degrees!! Yikes,, We sure don't have that kind of heat here... We live on an Island in the Puget Sound,, it has actually been kind of cold here... At least mom thinks it cold, being that its suppose to be summer.... Its been about 68 degrees during the day,,, and down in the low 50's at night... We have a Sea Breeze all the time and when the fog sets in its really damp so it feels even colder... It rains here a lot too.... Many years ago the islands were a part of the Pacific Northwest Rain Forest... I think thats neat cause I am from the Amazon... I was eating Toast in the pic... I love toast sooooooooo much... I always have breakfast with Mom and Dad, Toast is one of my favorite things... Okay Smokie,,,, You have a good day and I hope it cools down for you.... Heres a vote from me today... talk to you later,,, Thanks for being my friend and stopping by..

  I'm a Boy!
Well...I was sexed this past week. Boy did I hate having that toenail cut! But the results came back yesterday, and now I know for sure that I'm a boy (my owner had a suspicion beforehand, just because I have a mostly laid-back behavior).

I love your motto. I am happy you picked your Dad so you could go have a wonderful forever home. Remember too many seeds and millet is a no-no. Some seeds and pellets, veggies and fruits and it may take awhile to get used to eating them. The Cecilator on this site likes sprouts, store bought and not the ones his Mom sprouts, he is so stubborn. No chocolate, no caffeine, no acohol, isnt that silly we are smarter than that, no apple seeds, peach,pear,no apricot seeds well peach and pear are really pits with a seed inside it and no grapes with seeds but seedless grapes are fine, yummy. YOu can eat pomegranates, I like bananas. Never dry beans but if they have been cooked and cooled it makes them safe. See my Mom told me all this. Seems a lot of No this or that but it is so we are safe. I like broccoli well sometimes, today I threw it out of my cage,hehe. I hope you have a great evening.

I think you are cute. We have five other lovebirds here, one almost like me, one a weird yellow, three grey ones. Twilight is starting to get a little color but Shadow is not and Blossom isnt changing much. They are siblings, do you think they could be sparrows or something in disguise? My mate Blueberry died and he was such a pretty shade of blue. I hope you have a fun-tastic day.
