Charlie was a Valentine's Day present from my dad in 1984. Who would have guessed that he'd be living such a full and feisty life! Charlie's lived in several states and been on his fare share of airplanes. He's a little crabby in his old age, but that's why we love him.. Awards

Hi! My name is Charlie

I am a Cockatiel from Monrovia, CA.

Pretty Bird, Ratso

32 years old   M


Bread, pasta, rice, crackers, the occasional tortilla chip. I'm a carb maniac! Hey, I've lived this long so I'm doing something right!

If things seem awfully quiet, it's because I'm in my shoe box. I also enjoy sitting in the potted plant and eating a little dirt. Sometimes I hide in the pillows on the bed... a great way to freak out the bird sitter! I also love spending time with my girlfriend, a sun conure.

Please don't disturb me when I'm in my shoe box. Can't a bird get a little peace and quiet around here?

I love that she and I have pretty much grown up together. And I love that she gives me showers.

Well, seeing as I'm an elderly bird, I'm entitled to do just about anything I want. I like to freak people out when they're sleeping by sitting really close to their head and staring at them so that when they wake up, I'm right there!.

Gimme the carbs!.

  Hello from the flock
You are sooo handsome. I can see why the ladies love you too. I'm writing for Rudy because he is a bit grumpy this morning. My first feathered child was a Cockatiel like yourself. She was named Chauncey but at the time I didn't know her sex. I did learn quickly after she laid an egg.
Chauncey crossed the rainbow bridge at the age of 15. It was my complete devotion to her that made me start a new flock years later. Funny, we don't have a Cockatiel but plan on it again. I've taken on much bigger wings and will have to stop that practice unless I plan on moving.
Keep on loving! Mommy and Rudy.

Come visit me, Stella, TiVo, Lucy, Rudy, Gumbi & Gracie May.

Good Lord Charlie! I am a young sprig compared to you. I must say, you look quite handsome and healthy for 23 -- we old birds know how to look polished! Thank you for writing -- I am sending you a vote and a friendly hello! Write back anytime. Your buddy, Calvin

Come visit me, Miggy, Calvin passed away July 16, 2008, Smarty, Silky & Jacinta.

  Hi Charlie
Well, 23 years old, You & your Mom must be doing something right. I am only 2 1/2. I like that you have a box for peace & quiet, that way you can get yor needed sleep. I keep trying to bite the wireless mouse while Mom is typing.Here's a vote for you. (*>*)

Come visit me, In Memory of Dusty (a white faced cockatiel).
