Hi! My name is Jaap

I am a Budgerigar from Papendrecht, Intl.

Piet Japie..

19 years old   M


He doesn't like treats, he just wants to eat his normal food.

He loves to sit next to his mirror, then he can see all around the room!

He doesn't like to be touched.

That she gives me special attention!

  Caymus' Joke of the Day!
Hey Jaap, I’m just flyin’ by real quick to tell you a “joke of the day!” (hey, no groaning…I SWEAR this one is funny!) Ok, so… was the Roman Empire cut in half? ??????????? With a pair of Caesars! hahahohohehehe!!! Oh come on now, you totally laughed! I saw you! (grin) Big birdy hugs and a vote coming your way!

  Hi Jaap!
If you’re taking a vacation with your parronts this year…or they going off without you (hmph!), then I’m here with Caymus’ “green idea of the day” just for you world travelers out there! 1) Touring a new city? No better way to see the sites either by walking or public transportation. When in Rome, they say. 2) If you must rent a car, rent a hybrid! 3) When dining out, eat “local”…if in Maine, have lobster. Trip to Washington? Try the salmon. No sense having a steak in Key West when you could be dining on Stone Crab and Key Lime Pie! 4) Same for where to dine…choose a local mom and pop establishment instead of the golden arches. Helps the local economy at the same time. 5) Stay at hotels that are adopting sustainable initiatives…and use those towels and linens more than one day please! 6) When it comes to souvenirs, buy something that was locally made. I’d rather have a painting from a local artist than a Grand Canyon snow globe made in China any day. Happy trails, and don’t forget to write! (hehehe)

  Hi Jaap!
Peachy here…helping Caymus with his Earth Day campaign. While Mr. Big Beak was chowin’ down on mom’s Easter dinner Sunday, I hopped on the ‘puter to do a little research. --Did you know that recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy to watch TV for 3 hours? --Did you know that more than 20,000,000 Hershey's Kisses are wrapped each day, using 133 square miles of tinfoil? All that foil is recyclable, but not many people realize it. --Did you know if every newspaper was recycled, we could save about 250,000,000 trees each year? Unfortunately only 27% of all American newspapers are recycled. --Did you know that each year, billions of used batteries are thrown away in the United States? This constitutes 88% of the mercury and 54% of the cadmium deposited into our landfills. --Did you know that approximately 5 million tons of oil produced in the world each year ends up in the ocean? And those humans complain about how messy us birdies are??? Ha! Even Caymus isn’t that dirty and he’s a WRECK! hehehe Singing a little Canary song as I press the vote button on your page!

  Hi Jaap!
Caymus here. Today I’d also like to mention that it’s “Prevention of Cruelty to Animals” month. My little friend Pippin from Dearborn Heights, MI, along with his flockmates Dusty Beaker, Skipper, Sammie, Max and Sapphire, reminded me of that fact. Thanks, Pip! I got my green idea of the day by going to, where you can preview the trailer for the new movie coming out on Earth Day. And, to celebrate the premier, the film’s makers will plant a tree in honor of every moviegoer who sees the film in the opening week. The trees will be planted in the Brazilian Atlantic Forest, which is considered the most endangered rainforest in the world. Some of our wild cousins live there…so now mom’s trying to figure out how she can smuggle me in the movie theater! hehehe Stay green my friend-hugs and votes all around!

Caymus here with my green tip of the day…and this one comes from Monsieur Dijon the Grey Poupon (or could he be the GREEN Poupon? hehehe Anyway, his mom recommends for cleaning, Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day and Method products. Thanks Dijon! Hey, how can you tell the ocean is friendly? ….. Because it waves! Woo-ho-ho-ho! Sending a vote and hug your way – see ya tomorrow!

  Hi Jaap!
Caymus here. Well it’s that time of year again when I really show my true colors and invite everybirdy our there to “go green” with me! Even my fister Peachy has gotten into the spirit…I mean, have YOU ever seen a green Canary? Rumor has it that I painted Sam the Grey green last year, so you better be careful or this year I may come after YOU! hehehe And of course, stay tuned for my “green ideas of the day” as well as some really neat quotes, and of course a silly joke or two. Earth Day is very important to our flock not just on April 22nd, but every single day of the year because as an old Cree Indian Proverb says, “only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught, will we realize we cannot eat money.”

  Hi Jaap!
Happy New Year! I know that Peachy and I have not been around much lately but that doesn’t mean we haven’t frequently thought about all our dear friends here on the BC. We just wanted to fly by today to say that we have not forgotten about you, miss you dearly, and promise to keep in touch in 2009. You’re friendship has meant a lot to us (and mommy, too) and we all wish you joy, peace and prosperity in the new year. Ok, have to leave you with a “joke of the day….” Question: Why can’t a chicken coop have more than 2 doors?………………………………………….Answer: Because if it had 4 doors it would be a chicken sedan! hehehehe! See ya next year!

You are at Rainbow Bridge! Sorry I didn't get to know you before you left ua. I am named after a birdie who looked just like you. He lived here for 17 years! his name was Anthony, so I am Anthony Jr. Mom tried to find a birdie who looked just like him, but at the time there were none around. I was the most green she could find. Later we lost a little bird named Rikki, and she found a greener birdie, and named him Riley. He lives in a cage next to me with at totally yellow girl, called Ricky (?). She is named after Ricky the chi on DC who was killed by a Pitt Bull dog. (and Rikki our birdie) I'm sure you've met Anthony up there at the Bridge, so have fun with him. Love, AJ

Come visit me, Jay-Lo.
