Hi! My name is Budgie

I am a Budgerigar from Los Angeles, CA.

The Budge, pretty bird, fuzzy

6 years old   F

Budgerigar

I love carrots and granny smith apples, the more sour the better. I also love treat sticks in egg flavor, I can eat these all day long.

The windowsill in the kitchen. A Hummingbird came to see me once, that was cool. Also on top of my cage and on shoulders.

I don't like to have anyone make me get out of my cage if I don't want to go out. It's rare though because I am always out.

She talks to me all the time, lets me drink water out of her cup and keeps the bath at a nice temperature so I can get into the water anytime I want. Most of all, she loves me.

Playing with my owners hair and glasses and once in a while I will see my reflection in the camera viewfinder and make funny noises..

If it's shiny I'm eating it..

  Hi, Pretty Budgie!
Gosh, my owner hasn't been on here in a while. I love your pictures, especially the one with your cute little head peeking over the camera!

Good job on getting to take a bath! I haven't had too many lately--it took me a while to get used to this weird sink with the funny-looking faucet, but it's quite good. I plan on taking many more when the weather gets warmer.

I sat on my owner's shoulder yesteday while she was eating a grapefruit--have you ever tried one? She let me taste it, and it looked so nice and juicy, but it tasted terrible! Humans eat some weird stuff.

I hope you're having a good day. How is the weather there? It's sunny here, but very cold outside, so I'm sitting on my nice heated perch.

Thanks for voting for me, and here's a vote for you! Have a wonderful day!

Come visit me, Tootsie.

  Hi Budgie!
No, I don't get to go on the trip...I don't really like riding in the car too much, it's so bumpy--I'll be lonely though! I guess my favorite song is the "Andy Griffith" theme song, which my owner whistles to me. I try to whistle it back to her, but I'm not so good at it. Well, I'm off to play on the remote...here's a vote for you, and have a great weekend!

  Hi Budgie!
It's raining here, too...the house is dark! My owner's husband tried to mow the lawn, when all this thunder and rain came, and he had to quit, but at least he got the front part done. I like my owner's husband--he pretends to punch me, and I get all excited. I love landing on his shoulder when he doesn't expect it. Sometimes he sings and plays the guitar, and I sing along. I'll tell my owner about the aviary...I don't know if she'll be able to do it, she couldn't even get my little birdie to sit on the tree, so he's floating in the air! Anyway, I hope you and your owner have a great weekend, and here's a vote for you!

  Good morning Budgie!
I hope the wind has died down there...our house gets noisy when it's windy, and it's a little scary! Too bad you can't come visit, but maybe my owner can add you to my aviary if she could only figure out how to do it! Yes, I did eat a little bit of my treat stick when it was on a plate, but now it's hanging up in my cage and I'm staying away from it again. I love messing with my owner's mind, ha ha! Well I understand that the two noisy kids who live here will be getting out of school in a few days, so things are gonna be hopping around here--it's a good thing I like noise! Have a great day and I'll talk to you soon!

Hi Budgie, I hope you had a nice birthday! You should come here and visit me, the temperature is lovely today. My owner has the windows open, and I can hear the birds chirping outside. I'm attacking my hanging toys--do you think that will impress them? Don't worry, I haven't landed on any glasses in a few days....every time I try that, people holler and swat at me, so I won't be doing it again any time soon! Well here's another vote for you, I hope things cool off in your neck of the woods!

  Hi Budgie!
I hope you and your owner are doing well! Yes, we did have an earthquake and I was so scared! It was night and all the lights were out, so I freaked out and fell off my perch, then I flapped all over my cage and yelled so someone would come turn the lights on. So you have more hot weather there--no fun! It was warm here for a few days, then this weekend it got cold again. My owner had the A/C on and now she has the heat back on--I know this because the thermostat is right over my cage! Well, I'm gonna go check out this new "Aviary" thing that I noticed on our profiles--I'm getting really good at walking on laptops. Have a great week!

Come visit me, Tootsie.

  Hi there, Budgie!
Here's another vote for you! Yes, I did hear that my owner has a birthday coming up--she'll be 42; I think we might be about the same age in bird years! I was going to leave her a nice big poop on her shoulder for a present, but now that you mention it that might not be such a good idea--she does get a little put out when I do that. Yesterday she cleaned my cage and gave me a lovely bath, so I'll be nice to her. Maybe she'll give in and let me have a sip of her tea! Have a great week, I'll talk to you soon!

Come visit me, Tootsie.

Hi Budgie, here's another vote for you! Yes, I'm happy to be back in my house, and I got some exercise today. I don't understand hamsters--why would they want to run on a wheel that doesn't go anywhere? Flying is so much more fun.

My favorite treats are whatever my owner is eating. Today I ate some of her cookie crumbs. She never tastes my bird food...I wonder why?

I hope you and your owner have a great week!

Come visit me, Tootsie.

  Hi Budgie, I'm back!
And here's a vote for you too! And it's OK if you forget to tell me--I know you're voting for me, and I appreciate it! Anyway, I'm sorry I couldn't answer you sooner, but Michaela and I stayed at my owner's mom's house this weekend while my owner and her husband went to Las Vegas. It was kind of fun, I got lots of attention and everything, but I'm not allowed out of my cage when I'm away from home. I need some exercise! Well, I sure hope those hamsters went home so that you can have your owner's undivided attention. Take care and have a wonderful week!

  Happy Spring, Budgie!
Here's a vote for you, my friend! I'm glad you had a good Easter. It's finally getting warmer here, but all it does is rain, rain, rain, and my owner doesn't like it. But I don't mind, 'cause I'm too busy eating all this nice food she's been buying me. It's SO much better than the other stuff! I heard your owner got a new monitor--have you landed on it yet? Take care and have a great week!

How could I turn down an offer from a pretty bird like you? I'm having a good week; I've been eating a lot, chewing on my owner's necklace and earrings, landing on her husband's bald head, and pooping all over the place. I've even pecked on my egg treat a couple of times when nobody was looking--don't tell anyone! Have a great day!

  Hello, my pretty twin!
That must have been so scary when the balloon popped! I'm glad your owner bought you some new toys to make up for it, and I can't wait to see your new pictures! I'm still driving my owner crazy, throwing pieces of my egg stick out of my food dish and shedding feathers all over the place. I'm glad your weather is nice! It was lovely and warm in the house today, then all of a sudden the temperature dropped and now it's freezing! The wind is howling outside and the house is making scary noises. Well, my towel is on, so I'm going to sleep now, but I hope you enjoy your day tomorrow and that you have recovered from your moulting. Take care and here's a vote for you!

Come visit me, Tootsie.

  Hello, Budgie!
I hope you're having a good weekend. That's too bad about the balloons--I hope they didn't hurt you! Did your owner have a party? I like having lots of people around, because I can practice my talking when they make all their noise. I am driving my owner nuts right now because I've been losing so many feathers. She keeps threatening to take me to a doctor, but I don't think she will because it's REALLY cold here. Well, gotta go take a nap. Have a great day!

  Hi, Pretty Budgie!
Here's a vote for you! I've been busy throwing stuff I don't like out of my food dish (my owner is giving me dirty looks....ha ha!). Be careful when you fly around trying to get to those birds outside--you might end up with a bashed up cere like me! I think you're right about my owner, though, if she had wanted to kill me she would have done it a long time ago...I guess she's just careless. So, you might get a fish to keep you company? Be careful--my owner says her mother had a budgie drown in the fish tank once! But I know you're much too smart to do that. Take care and say hi to the outside birds for me!

  Happy New Year, Budgie!
Here's a vote for you! I hope you had a great holiday. It got really warm here (in the 70s!) for a couple of days, then we had some bad storms, and now it's getting cold again.

I think my owner is trying to kill me--either that or she's really dumb! She took me upstairs to this horrible room where every time I tried to fly, I bumped into something! I've still got a headache. She tried to put some of that treat stick into my food, and I threw it out--I don't trust her!

Have a great year and stay pretty!

Here's a holiday vote for you! You sure are looking good in all those pictures. Santa left me a hanging toy made out of fruit--I haven't tasted it yet, because I'm still a little scared of it. I came out of my cage on Christmas while my owners were watching a movie, and I wouldn't go back in-ha ha ha ha! Well I hope you enjoy having your own bedroom--I just stay here in the family room with a towel over my cage. Enjoy the rest of your holidays, and I'll talk to you soon!

  Hi Budgie!
It's me Cory, thank you for flying by and seeing me. And yes it is VERY VERY cold here, in fact we received our first major snow it dumped about 1 foot or more of snow last night and still snowing. This year Mom said it is taking for ever for the snow to get here, well her wish is here and we get to have a white Christmas again this year. I'm still a little shy when it comes to that camera thing, but I'm getting better cause my folks love taking pictures of me and says I've come a long way since they rescued me. I will fly by again and see ya - birdie hugs and kisses

  Hello Budgie!
Here's a vote for you! Those new pictures of you are gorgeous! Is there really a bird in the camera? Maybe some day when I'm feeling more courageous, I'll check that out. Yes, my owner put some vitamins and other stuff in my food, and it smells terrible! I wouldn't eat it for several hours, and she got all worried and upset, so I'm eating it now to humor her. The egg treat she stuck in my cage is big and scary, so I'm staying away from it! SQUAWK!!!

There's lots of white stuff outside, and it's really cold here. My owner has been leaving the light on over my cage a lot to keep me warm, and her husband put a big humidifier in the front room. I really think a warm, tropical climate would be much nicer, don't you?

Come visit me, Tootsie.

  YEAH, BABY!!!
How was that? (My owner likes Austin Powers too!) Sounds like you're having fun with those outside birds, wish I could join you! Did you hear about how my absent-minded owner forgot to feed me the other day? Man, am I ticked off at her, SQUAWK!!! I'd run away from home if I could figure out how! I'm feeling better now, but still kind of tired. She'd better get me something really good for Christmas to make up for that one. I might take you up on that egg treat offer...the sun hasn't been out here for 6 days, and California is looking pretty darn good. Have fun by your window, and here's a vote for you!

Lookin' good (whistle), here's a vote for you! So, have you bitten your owner's nose yet? I guess if you did, she wouldn't give you any treats. My owner didn't know I had eyelashes, so she keeps coming to look at me, but I won't close my eyes for her, and I blink too fast for her to see--ha, ha! Yes, it's cold and dark here, and I don't like it, so I'm crabby today. Take care and enjoy mild L.A.!

Here's a vote for you. Love the poster! It's getting cold here and my owners have the fireplace going (it's gas, so I won't fly into it!) Now that I'm lifting weights, I'm thinking about flying out to sunny L.A. and hanging out at Muscle Beach. Wanna come watch me? I'll definitely stop by and taste your egg treat, it sounds yummy.

Wow, I can't believe I was quoted in Bird Talk! Maybe one day I'll be really famous--after all, I do have a star on the walk of fame! Your checkup sounded horrible--I hope you bit some fingers, you poor thing! And it was very clever of you to hide your age from your owner, ha ha! Well, you still look like a beautiful girl to me no matter what your age, and I'm glad you've been pronounced healthy by your doctor (but you already knew that, right?).

Here's another vote for you! Sounds like you had a great holiday with lots of yummy food. I got left alone on Thanksgiving night, but it was OK....these kids who live here got hockey sticks for an early Christmas present, and they're hitting toy pucks by my cage and driving me crazy! About your cere...I could be wrong, but I think that might mean...um...ahem...well, you might be getting kind of hormonal. It's pretty normal for you girls. I hope your molting gets better--mine has been so bad lately, I'm tired of having prickly white feather stalks sticking out everywhere. Take care and let me know how your doctor's appointment goes!

  Hi Budgie, how are you doing? Looking gorgeous as always, I'll bet! I'm molting too; I don't think I've stopped molting for months. My owner keeps coming around here with her hand vac and muttering "Dumb bird"--as if I can help it! I'm ready for Santa to come--I hope he leaves me a new toy in my stocking; I'm getting tired of these same old ones. I hope you and your owner have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and save some of that kiwi for me!

  Hi Budgie!
Good evening and here's a vote for you! I'm glad you had a fun Halloween. The family left me all alone to go to a silly parade, so I threw feathers all over their new carpet--ha, ha! No, I don't go too many places I'm not supposed to--I'm afraid of strange rooms, especially the second floor, where I once had a run-in with a mirror, ouch! That wasn't my worst accident, though--a few years ago my owner's daughter dropped the door of my cage onto my neck. I thought I was a goner! Come on over some time, we can steal some of the microwave popcorn those kids got trick or treating!
