I was hand-fed by Renee, just like a ton of other birds at her work. I made an impression on Renee with my talking ability, early on. I told Renee "I love you best." Renee paid to have me come to her house. (I was purchased.) She had to test out of the hand-feeding before I was allowed to be taken home because I was an unweaned bird!. Awards

Hi! My name is Mikey

I am a Quaker from Lake Elmo, MN.


11 years old   M


I have a fondness for green beans, split open and love one bite of bing cherries; but only one bite.

I like to be wherever Renee is or in my tent, inside of my cage.

I am suspicious of fingernail polish and Rocky the cockatiel.

"Renee is a good companion and tries to understand my needs and enrich my life.
She understands me when nobody else does, literally."

I tell my female dog that she is a "Good Boy".
I help with the dishes by doing sound effects of dishes being washed and water running.
I tells loud people to "Quit"

"I'm a bat. Are you a bat?".

  Long time no squak
It seems like forever since we have been here. Renee got caught up in that hobby, scrapbooking. I like to scrapbook with her. I make sure to ask if the paper is a "TOY?" first. If she says no then I know I must not help. But then she gives me a sticker. I nod my head and say "toy" before I take it just in case she's not sure. I think she buys stickers just for me. She says "Michael, are you helping?" and I say "yeah". If I want a sticker and she forgets to let me help, I just say "Want some". I like to scrapbook with Renee and hate to be left out.
Well, it's spring again and my thoughts are out there flying. I would like to be in the open skies and under the bright sun. Renee is so paranoid that I will leave again but I am trying to convince her to take me outside. I ask her "Come with me?" and "Pick Me Up?" Sometimes I have to ask her several times. But even though she won't take me with her, I always send her on her way with "a big smoochy kiss".

Come visit me, Mikey.

  Where have we been the last 600+ days?
Mikey Here: Life has been very exciting. I am a big bird now- a world traveller. Not really but I have gotten a lot of flying in. I scared Renee pretty bad early on when I suddenly launched myself off her shoulder got out the door that was open and caught an updraft. She cried for days. I had a great time living in the local trees, eating out of birdfeeders and calling out to the schoolchildren. Unfortunately I didn't know which home was mine and I didn't find my way back. Fortunately Renee's pet husband is pretty helpful and persistent and put up a hundred "Lost Bird" Reward signs with a lot of helpful info. Within several weeks I was back, thanks to a helpful neighbor who kept a full feeder and can follow directions well. Renee was overjoyed! Actually so was I. I squakked my lost bird/found bird call for days after. You get tired of being in the elements, You Know?

  Hi Mikey
So how are things going with you. I know it has been a while, but Mommy was sick, then super busy there for a while. this is really the first time she has left us spend any time on the computer. I'm glad we get a chance to say hello to all of our friends... I'll kick that votie thing off of your page, have a wonderful day, and try to stay warm.

Just flying by to say a quick HELLO. We were on BC last night and spent time leaving little notes for everyone. However; when Mommy told us to hit that button to post our notes BC was doing something stupid, and wouldn’t leave any of our notes. Funny when she has time to get us out and get on BC and check in with everyone we couldn’t. Mommy said we can fly by quick and kick that votie thing off the top. Take care,

  Hi Mikey
I hope your week goes well. Mom's tried to retrain me and got tired of being bite (Wow she has a great pain threshhold!!! I bite hard for a little bird, I must like the taste of blood too.) Thanks for the offer of the training tips though. She's just going to let me wonder around outside of my cage and if she has to get near me she's usually "shooooing me" into the cage b/c she has to go out or she's picking up all my toys for me. She tried to put her finger up to my chest and she said "UP". I gave her a good bite to let her know "I don't want your fingers in my cage Thank You!!" LOL I do thank you for trying to help though. I'll fly by later on in the week to see what your up to. Bye for now though.

Come visit me, Charlie.

Just thought I would fly by with the family. It has been a while since all of us have been on the computer. Mommy was sick last week and didn't really do to much. We got to watch a lot of movies and take long naps. Which was ok with us. I guess Mommy didn't want to get us out so she wouldn't make us sick. Take care and get with you later... here is a vote for you...

  Hi Mikey
Yeah your so right about the parakeet. I hope the keet finds a really good home. The owner of the bird has to/or really should be the one to train his/her own bird seeing that he/she will be the one handling it and caring for it!! Mom has tried to refinger train me, but I'm just to territorial of my cage. Anybody that get's to close to my cage or stuff is looking to get a bad bite!! I get scared if I can't see or be near my cage. Mom just lets me out of the cage to play, every now and then I fly down to the floor and usually can't fly back up to my cage (my wings are clipped) so I SCREAM at Mom (if she's not in the room). She knows what that scream sounds like then she'll kneel down so I can fly to her shoulder and back to the cage. Sometimes I stay on Mom's shoulder. Thanks for the visit and vote. Here's a vote back to you. Bye.

Come visit me, Charlie.

  Hi Mikey
Sorry I missed your visit (Mom's been busy lately). so glad to hear that all the baby teils are doing well. I bet they're really cute too. Has your Mom trained that parakeet yet? What's she training him to do? I once was finger tame, now I'm very very territorial over my cage!! I like to BITE!! Mom's trying to get me away from the cage each day w/ a towel in hand!!! I've learned to wolfe whistle, doesn't sound like Mom's or Dad's though, but you can hear what I'm trying to do though. LOL But you really have to listen to me to "hear" me talk. The words are clear to other human's but Mom & Dad know what I'm saying. If I say "Paper, please" I get a big piece of paper for it!! Yummy!!! or "Goodnight pretty bird" I get my house (an big old seed container) back, a little piece of paper and covered for the night. I have to hang upside once I'm covered to shred the paper to put into my house. LOL That's what I've been up to. Here's a vote for you!!! Bye for now.

Come visit me, Charlie.

  Hi From TJ
On Mommy just loves your picture. She wants a bird like you, but in our state we aren't allowed to have them. She was going to try to get one anyway, but then she read where if "bad people" found out she had a bird like you, they would come in and give Mommy a big fine and take all of us away. So Mommy doesn't want to take that chance. So she will just admire the pictures and dream. I know for sure Mommy won't give us up for anything. Take care of your Mommy, and I know she will be kind to you always... here is vote for you... you look so kind and gentle..

Thanks for the visit and the vote. I posted an update of why my Mom wasn't around much last week if you'ld like to see. I enjoy visitors of all kinds. Mom isn't sure if she wants a bigger bird than me (I bite pretty hard). LOL She still loves me though. I must fly for now but I'll come back soon. Bye. Oh here's a vote too.

  Hello Mickey!
Hi, I'm kind of new here, too. My moms (I have two) saw me at a bird show here a couple of weeks ago and just had to take me home with them. My dad has a quaker named, Waddles. She says, "Open the door" and makes a knocking sound whenever anyone knocks on the door then she laughs just like her dad. Well, my mom says it's time for me to go back in my cage so I can get some rest. Mom says babies need lots of sleep. Poo, on that, I wanna play with my new friends. Gotta fly! Hope you can come by and visit me! Here's a vote for you! Feathery hugs and beaky kisses! Honey Bun

  Hi Mikey
Thanks for stopping by. I don't imitate a lot of sounds, but I do imatate my Mom's Audobon clock (a different bird call comes out every hour). I like the 4'Oclock bird ( the woodpecker) I really love to make sounds like that. I also like to imitate my Mom's laugh. Sometime she laughs with Dad and I chime in, then they really seem to laugh. I like to "sing" mostly, I do say some words (probably around 15-20). I like to say "Goodnight pretty bird" when it's time for me to go to bed and Dad cover's me up. I say that until I do get covered up. I also say "Good Morning pretty bird" when I'm uncovered. I call myself a "pretty baby, pretty bird" I'm working on a wolfe whistle right now, I've got 1/2 of it down. most of all i like to throw stuff!! I best go for now, thanks for the updates. i look forward to reading more!! Bye!!

  HIYO Mikey!
I talk funny too: hence, HIYO = HELLO and GWOUT = GO OUT or anywhere that I'm not at right this second! LOL I do get LOVE YOU correct though and that gets everyone's attention too, so I know what you mean. We sound like twins from another mother. AND, I too love green beans split open. AND, you are right on the money, my friend KIT-KIT never keeps me in a cage anymore, except when I go to sleep, but the door isn't closed. My cage is just covered up real nice and cozy! I still get nervous when I get locked in somewhere, so KIT understands and hooks me up. We are all so lucky to have and love each other. It's me, Kilroy (Sun Conure), Waldo-Pepper (Quaker) and B.B.Blue (rescued Eastern Bluebird). B.B. is our only sister and we have some fun with her, she thinks she is a parrot....ha ha ha ha....yuk yuk yuk yuk yuk.......... Talk to you soon, BYE-BYE BIRDY & KILROY WAS HERE TOO!

Come visit me, BIRDY & KILROY.

Mikey again. We just got two new cockatiels. Renee changed their names and clipped their wings. They are yummy cockatiels. I love cockatiels (except for that dratted Rocky), especially the toe parts. They moved into the aviary yesterday and they already love it here. We can tell from all the talking and singing. I like to fool them by telling them to "Step up" and "Get Down" a lot. Thank you to all of you who stopped by and voted for me. We like to add a bit of humor to your day. I just can't find where to update this blog unless "Add Comment" is the only way. Still got a lot to learn.
