Eclectus from Seattle, WA

I decided to get a male Eclectus for my third and supposedly final bird, ha. I posted on The Eclectus Connection listserve that I wanted to find an older male who needed a home and was contacted immediately about a 3 1/2 year old Aru male who had become aggressive when the female he'd been raised with was given a nestbox. They were separated and sold into pet homes. Donald is an overbonded, frequently hormonal Eclectus, but he is beautiful, loyal, intelligent, and an incredible indoor flier.. Awards

Hi! My name is Donald

I am an Eclectus from Seattle, WA.

The Donald, Big Don, Don Don, Donaldbird

16 years old   M


Edamame soybeans, tofu, and he LOVES Harrison's pellets though I don't feed those to him anymore...but he will try and sneak one.

Donald loves to be in the same room with me. He is my chaperone and likes to make sure I'm okay at all times. I don't allow him on my shoulder but he is often next to me on a playgym or will fly and follow me from room to room around the house.

What ISN'T something that annoys Donald, the world's grumpiest Eclectus??? Being put back in his cage, people visiting he doesn't know, another bird on his cage, me taking another bird AWAY from him before he can nip them....

Jean loves me even though I scream and have frequent bad moods. I love going in the shower with her and when she has me fly around the house chasing her at top fun! And all the good food!

Anything that makes me nervous or mad makes me say "No!!!" Don has had several homes and I believe he was told 'no' a lot in his first home unnecessarily. If the other birds make noise and it bugs him, he yells "No!" at them. But he can make the most noise of all!!! If I leave the house and he doesn't want me to, he will scream for half an hour..

My owner and some food, what else is love?.

  Hi Donald
Thanks for all the information on Eclectus that you have. Gus was making some noises today and it was funny cause Chi Chi just turns her head funny and looks at him like " what are you saying" I cant wait till he says some words though. He still is having a hard time balancing since he is so young. Sometimes he falls asleep on his perch and falls off to the bottom of the cage. The other nite he fell out of the cage. Do you have your birds wings clipped? The store clipped Gus before he left and Chi chi are just growing in again so am not sure what to do with Gus yet. Will have to see how he does later. Here is another vote and cheech to ou later and thanks again.

Come visit me, ~~Gus~~ & Chi chi RIP my sweet girl..

  Hi Donald
Do you make much noise cause Gus sure is quiet. He is just a 3 month old baby though. He "honks" once in a while but that is all. Here is a vote for you and cheech to you later.

Come visit me, ~~Gus~~ & Chi chi RIP my sweet girl..

  HI Donald!
Welcome to the Bird Channel! I love your pics! How are you? Thank you for coming by to visit me. My moms have been busy all week cleaning up all the leaves in our yard. This is the time of year when mom wishes she didn't have quite so many trees. I wonder why they spend so much time cleaning up all those pretty leaves. Looks like a whole lot of work to me. Well, we finally had our first frost here a couple of days so you know it's gotten really cold here. Mom says she can't wait for spring already. I hope you can come by and visit me. Here's a vote for you! Feathery hugs, Honey Bun

I am flying by to give you your 2nd vote..You must have a very big house to be able to let all the birds fly around.. So you are a very horny boy? My little brother Tootes is the same way, he has a good time on his fuzzy hut..He's still a baby and he's doing this already.. Boy, these kids grow up so fast..So you are a little grump? I can be at times to, espesally(my spelling is terrible) when I don't get what I want.. I am a spoiled brat, well thats what my mom says, but I don't think I am.."Not me!" Well I better get to the next flock member, boy is my beak getting tired of all this writing, well pecking. You have a big family.. Have a great day. Love, Your friend, Rocky♥ xoxoxoxoxo
