Hi! My name is Cheerio Cheerioptera

Lory

Whole apples that I can play with and demolish.

In the shower and at the beach.

I hate that "BIRD" that hides out in the mirror...she's everywhere... everywhere in my business!

Cuddles.

I like to dump my waterbowl on the floor to remind my owner to clean my cage!.

"da..da. .da..da..BAT BIRD!".

  Hey there.
I hope you are having a good week. Mama is off from work tomorrow and that means she will spend the day with us. I learned a new phrase. I said "Rascal, sit" yesterday. Rascal is Mama's big walker. She got all excited when she heard me and begged me to say it again. Of course I wouldn't say it. I just said all my normal stuff. Then, when she turned the lights out to go to bed, I relented and repeated it. Mama called me a stinker. Gave you a vote. Later, Skittles.

Come visit me, Kudzu.

  No worries
So it's the end of the month, and fall is finally starting to settle upon us here. Summer went by so fast for me. I lost my second home and found my third. I've been with my new mom now for about five months and I've really started to settle in. The leaves are starting to change color. Lots of red, orange and yellow. It's very pretty in NH this time of year. Apple picking is coming to a close so mom is hoping to get some picking in soon (not that I like apples all that much, but they are one of Pippins favorites). The weather is surprisingly still very warm, but mom and I hear that is soon to change. Whether we like it or not snow is on it's way, brrr! We've has some baby birds come and go and now the house is relatively quiet again. I hope you've had a wonderfull summer and fall, and I'll talk to you soon.

  Hi, Cheerio.
How's it going with your new "friend"? A budgie lives with us, too. She's not nearly as friendly as I am but Mama seems to really like her. Mickey always sounds so darn cheerful and likes to sit with her head in her bell. What's that all about? Mama did some moving of the cages today. At least I didn't end up beside of Mickey. Now my neighbor is Starburst (sun conure). He's really colorful but I think I'm much better looking. I have a parrotlet on the other side of me. We'll see how it goes. Left you a vote. Skittles

  Mommy and I have been on an internet hiatus. Mommy says it's good for us not to sit around so much. Personally, I wish she'd hook up the TV again. She spends too much time with the boyfriend playing video games when she's supposed to be outside doing stuff! On top of it all, she's playing them on my TV! I wish she'd let me play video games.

Someone gave Mommy a parakeet. Mommy says she wants us to be buddies, but I have my doubts. 'Urqeet' just sits on his perch all day and stares at me. He likes Mommy too much, although he pretends not to. I can tell 'cause he chirps at her when she's away. Mommy is MY Mommy! It's bad enough having to share Mommy with the boyfriend, but 'Urqeet' can't even talk!

Come visit me, Cheerio Cheerioptera & Urqkeet.

  You have to give it back
So have you started bringing the ball back yet? Or are you still keeping it for yourself? Silly bird. Maybe you'll get a special treat if you bring it back. I get sunflower seeds when I do what I'm supposed to.

  Hello, Cheerio.
Just wanted to stop by and say hello from one rainbow colored birdie to another. I know what you mean about that other bird popping up all the time. I get on Mama's dresser and fuss and fuss at him, but he just won't go away. Plus, he insists on copying everything I do! It sounds like you had quite an adventure on your camping trip. But shame on your Mama for giving your food to that old crow! I've gotta go wash off my breakfast (cream of wheat...messy). I'll talk to you again. Skittles

  Sebastian loves Cheerio
I think we'd make a mighty handsome pair, pretty girl! Just platonic, of course... You're not only beautiful, but I like your playful attitude, and you're obviously almost as intelligent as I am!

Look forward to seeing more pics of you. Mom tells me she used to prepare food for the lories when she volunteered at the zoo, and she thought they were enchanting.

Your beach trip sounds awesome! The furthest I've gone is to the local Farmer's Market, where of course everyone loved me. Oh, yeah, I also traveled to a yard party which was a lot of fun, but I had to keep some of the kids in line 'cause they thought I'd love to be petted by just anyone, anytime. The hostess didn't think it was so cute when I jumped into the guacamole and walked around. Some people just have no sense of fun and spontaneity!

A vote for my Special Someone.

Come visit me, Moby, Darwin & In Memory of Sebastian.

  Names
My Mommy named me because she said I'd need a scientific name after I won my Nobel Prize in Ornithology. She thinks I'm brilliant cause I talk lots... Shhhhh.... don't tell her otherwise! I'd rather play ball than read books and upside down hanging is fun!

  To the Beach!
Argh! I've been having a fun week... Mommy took me to the beach. We went camping. I was scared at first but it was fun after awhile. Our tent was like a big bird nest and I could hear the ocean. I like the sound of the ocean, and Mommy says it helps her sleep. She was having trouble getting to sleep at home, and kept waking me up accidentally. Mommy says I'm crankier than her when I don't get enough sleep, cause she doesn't bite people.

The Ocean was really cool, but Mommy gets way too close to it. She swims in it and I wonder if maybe she's secretly a Mermaid. I'm no fish! I'm a bird! What's wrong with Mommy that she doesn't realize she's a bird too!

We saw lots of wild Birdz flying about and Mommy fed some of my food to a scruffy looking Crow. I was mad at her çause it's my food! Mine! The Crow had scary yellow eyes, but he could FLY! I started pecking at my food after watching him peck at the food Mommy left on the ground. Maybe if I peck at my food I'll be able to FLY!

Sorry to hear the other lory died. That is very sad, I hope your Mom is doing alright. Be very careful, apple seeds are poisonous, so are peach, pear, cherry, and I forget the others. My Mom did a display board for 4H on poisonous foods, plants for 4H. She got a blue ribbon. I got a blue ribbon too at the small pet judging. I think I would like to do it again, go to the Mall and see how many people come visit me, I was nervous at first and in a cage, I had my horrible harness on then Mom took me walking so it was fun.

  Hello from Pippin
Hi Cheerio. Mom just loves Lories, you guys have a ton of energy a bit like a Caique. I love all of your pretty colors. Mom got to hand raise a green nape lory at her work, he used to come and stay with us over the weekends. He was a fun playmate. I always tried to sneak a drink of his nectar. I don't really talk that much, I only say "hi". But I know how to do about 11 tricks when my mom gives me a hand signal... I do it for the treats : ) Anyway here is a vote, hope you stop by and visit me sometime!

Pippin <3

  I talk therefore I am!
I've been practicing all the new words I've learned lately... "I love you!", "Good Birdy","Good Cheerio","Let me outta here!"... lately though my favorite word has been "BIRD!" My owner says I say it really funny... well, you would too if that "BIRD!" kept following YOU everywhere! I go to take a shower and there she is in my mirror! I scream at her and flap my wings, but she just doesn't get the picture! I'm the boss! Sometimes she brings "BIRDZ!" and that hangout in the medicine cabinet mirror. I wish they'd find something better to do with themselves!

Come visit me, Cheerio Cheerioptera & Urqkeet.
