I was wandering through my favorite pet store (NOT bird shopping!), and I saw an empty cage with a sign: "Bronze-winged Pionus, $100 off" -- but no bird! I was amazed, since I had never seen a Pionus for sale locally, and I thought, oh, and of course it's sold! And then a few minutes later as I continued shopping, I saw this Pionus climbing around on some boxes! I said, "Well, there you are!" and she stepped right up on my hand. And the rest, of course, is history..

Hi! My name is Eureka

I am a Bronze-Winged Pionus from Rock Island, IL.

Reka Beaka

12 years old   F

Bronze-Winged Pionus

Anything warm, like freshly cooked veggies.

On Mom's head, and hanging upside down from the top of the cage.

Being toweled by the vet. It's so rude!

She gives me a special kind of goodnight hug that none of the other birds gets.

I dance and show off my wings so much in the shower, sometimes I fall off the perch!.

No one has prettier wings than I do..

  Hi Eureka
That's nice how your mom gave a good home to a white-cap in need. What's his name, and how old is he? You might think he is intruding right now, but you will probably get to be good friends soon. Here's a vote for you. From, Mayo

  Hi Eureka
Flying by with another vote for you. Mom gives me a bath in the kitchen sink. Her faucet has two different spray types on it. I like the one that feels like rain. I stretch out my wings as far as they can go and I like to get soaked. Then mom tells me I am such a pretty bird, even though I am a boy bird. ha ha From Mayo

  Hello Pretty Lady
I was cruising the BC looking for another friend and ran into your picture and did a double take. Had to come by and say hello to you. My name is Romeo and I'm a Umbrella Cockatoo from TN. You are very beautiful in case you haven't heard that before, and I'm pleased to meet you. I see you have quite a flock there. There are 5 parrots in our home, three tiels, a Senengal nutjob, and Me the handsome Too Man. It would be an honor to have you visit my page,.Take care Romeo

the breeder of kings did not have any this year:o(i did purchase a handfed superb parakeet same family as the princess,he was shipped from a pet store in florida,but he is scared and very flighty,so when i got back to the person i purchased him from he was very nasty and did not want to work this out,so i called my credit card company and they are going to dispute the charge so we shall see what happens,i did just put down a deposit on a handfed lutino princess of wales,i do know they have another and i also know of a breeder that has some normal color,so if you want the info let me know i will give you my e-mail address.

  Hi from Woof and Meow
Hi Eureka, Yep, we need lots of attention even though there's two of us. We are very sociable. Anyone who comes knocking at our door must be coming to visit us and must want us to sit on their fingers and shoulders. Mom says some humans are scared of us, but we don't believe that for a second. We don't bite. We just like to climb all over people and investigate their jewelry, clothes, eyeglasses, watches, etc. How about you? Are you lively? Friendly? Here's a vote, Woof & Meow

  Hi from Woof and Meow
Tell your mom us caiques are so much fun but we need a lot of attention. Our mom used to have a pionus once -- a blue-headed pionus. He was sickly when she adopted him and passed away after five months with her, but he was the gentlest bird ever. You guys are sweeties. Woof & Meow

  Hi from another bronze wing!
Hi Eureka!

Thanks for visiting my page! It's nice to see another bronze wing around--not too many of us! My mom is going to post new pictures soon. You sure are pretty! Am I seeing in your picture right that you have white speckles in your head? Do all bronze wings get that? I'm only 14 weeks old, so I don't know all this stuff yet. Mom knows more about IRNs and cockatiels, since they're the oldest birds in the house (about 2 years). Here's a vote for you, please come visit me again! ~Starbuck

  gee its faux agian we have bad luck:
ok so the breeder called and the amboina king is out 1 baby died and the other is sick,so i got my money re-funded from the pet store,but i did find a bird store called uptown birds in manhattan ny,they breed the australian kings thats the real big ones 17inches/230grams and they also have the princess of wales in normal,blue and lutino mutations,they say theirs are working the nest boxes now so to call next month,so i will have to wait longer but we dont mind its better then getting a species we really didnt want,as of course the owner kept trying to push a few others,well we will keep you updated on as the baby birdie hunt continues:o)

well we could not get the princess of wales parrot,he died before we could take him home,they could not find any more princess parrots im just not having any luck,but he did find one of his breeders had two amboina king parrot youngsters,so he said they should be in by thursday,so i may be getting a king parrot instead,and if theres a problem then im just going to pick out a ringneck parakeet they have plenty of those.

  hi the infamous faux bird here:
we were looking for a rock pebbler and just could not find any,any of the breeder's that wrote us back(some did not)were sold out,a few said the birds did not produce this year,the large australian parakeets normally breed early,so i don't think brightwood will have any this year,so mom and i came across a 5 month old princess of wales parakeet he is supposed to be a boy,he sounds kinda like a loud cockatiel so he is a little louder then we would have liked,they are very pretty birds to oh well maybe next time around,but glad to hear you found another baby for the moment LOL!:o)

  Hey Eureka, just stopping by to say hi and vote for my new best friend. I think the reason you resemble a hawk or golden eagle is because of the bronze coloring of your feathers. You are one fine looking bird. Have a great day. Kacey

  Hi
Hello Eureka!! That is wonderful that you two share a cage. Pebbles and I like each other a lot but mom wouldn't trust me to share a cage all the time. Sometimes I try to nip at Pebbles but I have'nt ever really hurt her. Starr the new puppy is still peeing in her crate but it's not all her fault mom doesn't get home til late because she has to go by the hospital to see grandpa so it's gonna take a little longer. None of us are poop trained birdies. We poop all over our cages. We have our wings clipped and mom puts carpet runners on the floor were we hang our butts over. Have a great nite. Hugs, Charlie

  Hello
Hi Eureka!! I'm so glad you stopped by. I'm sorry about your poodle. We have 5 Chihuahuas that live here and a Black Lab. Mom lost a Chihuahua several years ago and she still hasn't gotten over him either. She said we are like her kids. The new puppy Starr is doing pretty good. Mom is teaching her to sit and they stare into each other eyes for a little bit and then she gets a treat. If she don't get a treat she don't sit HEHE!! Boy!! We are so good we don't need training. Mom said she wishes I was pottie trained cause I'm a pooper. Hope your enjoying your weekend it's nice a warm here in VA. Hugs, Charlie Is that your little quaker friend with you in the pic. What a sweetheart!

  Hi from Fuzzy, Boo, and Lilly
Hi friends, it's been so long since mom let us on the computer to blog! We missed you all. Mom has been busy preparing for weddings, working in the yard, golfing, traveling, cleaning house, working, and of course loving on us little birdies. Mom usually puts us in one room with our play gyms and toys and keeps the budgies in their own room to play. But, sometimes, she lets those budgies out and forgets to close the door and they fly and land on our cages or play gyms. We don't like that at all. Mom says we have to be nice though. I (Fuzzy Good Birdie) don't like anybirdie on or in my house and I don't like to share my play gym. Silly and Boo, they share everything with each other. Mom won't let them live in the same houses though, but she lets them share their houses when she is home during our play time. She says it has something to do with a boy and a girl and no more birdies. Mom said she will work on the lovies line up today, anybirdie interested in signing up please blog Silly Lilly. We will leave votes with your fibs, but for the sake of time, mom says we can only blog one birdie per flock.

Come visit me, Baby Boo Bird, Fuzzy Good Birdie & Silly Lilly.

GiGi, Charlie, Pebbles, Kiwi, Tinky, Buttercup and mom (Della) would like to thank you all for stopping by with comforting words and prayers for us. It means more to us than you will ever know. Who knew when we joined the BC that we would meet so many wonderful parronts and their beautiful fids. We really enjoy you all. We are going to miss Mr. Mellow Yellow so much. Mom is really heartbroken right now but she knows with time the pain will ease. She's gotta be strong and take care of the rest of us. We are a demanding flock for her time. She has spoiled us so bad. God Bless you all. The Va Flock and Mom Love your pictures!

Oh friends. it has been such a sad day. Our mommy has a blue black masked lovebird (Baby Boo Bird) and a white faced yellow lovebird (Silly Lilly). Another mommy has a blue black masked lovebird (Gigi) and a white faced yellow lovebird (Mr Mello Yellow). Mommy always called them our twins. The cutest little birds ever. Mr Mello Yellow has gone to the Rainbow Bridge today. Our mommy is really sad, so we know their mom is devastated. If you get a chance drop by and leave a vote for Gigi and Mello, they'd appreciate it.
