It was a case of Bugs picking his owners. We were at the pet store for a new bed for Sunny. Bugs begged us for attention. When we finally found someone to let him out for us to see, he ran to us and we didn't look back, found his way into our hearts from that point on! Bugs passed away in my hands on Christmas Eve. RIP Buggsy!. Awards

Hi! My name is Bugs - RIP 12/24/08

I am a Green-Cheeked Conure from Joliet, IL.

Love-A-Bug, Buggsy, goofy, rock-hopper

10 years old   F

Green-Cheeked Conure

Anything I can get my beak on. Especially if I can steal it off of mom or Dad's plates. Or even better, out of Sunny's Bowl!

On my mom, I don't care where as long as I am on her. Anywhere were I can be in Sunny's way. He thinks just because he is bigger I should be scared of him. HA! I will prove him wrong. I think Mom & Dad wish I would be nicer to him though? Maybe I will think about it!

Not getting enough attention, When Sunny is on my Mom or Dad that is my place and he better move, or it will get UGLY! I also really hate that red light that comes from the bottom of Mom & Dad's mouse, I will get it one of these days!

She is always paying attentions to me and laughing at all of my tricks. I LOVE it when she rubs the back of my head. She knows all the spots! Mom is the only person I will let play with my tail, but I love it when she does! She helps me preen those places that are just a little hard to reach.

I love to see thing from a different perspective, which means I spend a lot of time hanging upside-down. My mom always says that I am a goof ball. I am always the families entertainment. I like to hop from one place to another, I guess that is why mom calls me a rock hopper. I recently learned how to give kisses. Mom loves it when I lean into her and give her a big kiss! Mom and Dad say that I snore when I sleep, but I don't believe them, I have never heard it?!.

Good things come in little packages!.

  Hello from the Moonshiners !!
Hey Everybirdy !!! We're back !! Mom is finally well enough to go back to work which means we can get back on the computer. The last two months were rough. We took care of mom the best we could. Sang to her all day long to make her feel better. Redneck and Hillbilly perched themselves next to mom everyday to keep an eye on her. Whiskey and I kept climbing around her shoulders to make sure she was being entertained. Yesterday was rough because we didn't know where she went until she got home from work and said hello to us. Dad is out of work right now so there is always someone home, but it's not the same. Dad doesn't let us climb all over him. The summer has been pretty crazy here with mom being sick and dad being out of work. The weather has been great all summer long, but we haven't been able to go outside at all. And would you believe after two months of not being here I don't even have a good story to tell. Mom keeps trying to take new pictures of us, but clam up every time the camera comes out. It's our little game with her. Well mom announced it's time for her walk, so we have to go. It's great to be back and we hope to hear from y'all soon!!

Come visit me, Redneck & Hillbilly & Whiskey & Bourbon.

Hi Bugs and Sunny. WOW you're from Joliet too? What part? We live on the west side behind the Jewel on Larkin Ave. Mom goes to the bird Fair at the Knights of Columbus every mos to get our supplies and endless toys. We are just so spoiled. hehehe I hope we can become great freinds. Just stop by whenever and we can keep in touch. It is so great to meet some more friends that live so close. You should also visit Redneck, Hillbilly, Whiskey and Bourbon. They are from Romeoville and I got to meet their parronts at the fair. Whiskey and Bourbon are green cheek parrots also. They are so cute. Well I am here to get votes for my sweetheart KIDDO for BOTW. I would love to be able to pass my crown onto him next week. It also would be cool for us both to be back to back BOTW winners. So Please stop by and VOTE KIDDO BOTW and spread the word to all your friends. WELCOME NEIGHBORS TO THE BC!! SWEETPEPPER CAMPAIGN MANAGER TO KIDDO FOR BOTW

Teri, Joliet, IL.

  Hello from Pippin
Hey there Bugs welcome to the channel. It's great to see another Green Cheek Conure. I like to climb around the top of my cage upside-down. That always get's mom laughing. Don't let that bigger bird push you around! Mom says I don't realize how small I am. One day I tried to take on Ollie the Blue Front Amazon. That scared mom, but I took him down. Mom thinks I'm a little bully, but I just like to assert myself :) Well here is a vote for you, stop by and visit me anytime.


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