(See Sebastian's last entry.) Mom thought she was buying another vociferous male, but I'm showing all the characteristics of being female..

Hi! My name is Darwin

I am a Cockatiel from Nacogdoches, TX.

No, but my name like my species comes from Australia. Mom would have named me Adelaide or Sydney if she'd realized I was female.

7 years old   F

Cockatiel

Millet, Quaker oatmeal squares, eggwhite, and Purina dog chow.

Mom's shoulder, on top of Moby's cage, and the keyboard.

That dadgum chihuahua,Sanch- o, who won't share his food even when he doesn't want any. (Brother Poco is much more gracious.)

She's a pushover.

Love to destroy Mom's carefully crafted handmade bookmarks and jewelry, and to "puncturate" book jackets and pages, and bite Mom's lower lip when she's least expecting it..

This is Black Op's commodore Big Sissy (Rosalie Hale Bopp) bring you a status report. Secret Agents Warrior Princess (Leah), Cowboy (Daddy), and Zoo Keeper (Mommy) have completed phase 2 of BLACK OP's OPERATION "AJ" and I will turn it over to Secret Agent Warrior Princess to complete the briefing. The unclassified details of the operation are the following. Myself and Ruby ran the Black Op's side of the operation out of Camp Get Acquainted . My job was to run interference for Field Agents Cowboy and Zoo Keeper as they made the 2000 mile trip to Ohio and then to Michigan and back to Charleston SC. Agent Cowboy had a job interview in Ohio on Friday and they spent the night at Zoo Keeper skin brother's place. They had to rent a second car to make the trip into Michigan because the SC car rental place would not let them go into Michigan with the unlimited mileage rate. On Saturday they made their way into Michigan and there they adopted our new flock mate "Charles Riley Jake" You can read the unclassified Intel about Charles Riley Jake using the following code on the BC 66865. On Sunday they made the long trip home to Charleston SC. You can see a picture of Jake at the bottom of my page. Agent Cowboy was very glad that the car had heated seats. They helped with his back. The second round of injections have reduced his back pain by about 70%. I am glad that Operation AJ is over and that I am at home with my mommy and daddy again. Well it's time to chase the votely thing off of your page. Until the next Black Op operation Warrior Princess signing off. LOBH (Lots of Birdie Hugs) Ç°> Leah

Can't wait to see your picture. the one where I am at the top of my playstand with wings and crest spread is after my first bath. I was drying my armpits. Hand another bath today. Don't think I like the shower. Mommy tried that and it did not work so good. I kept flying away!

Need your help I'm on a Christmas crusade to get Beavis BOTW. He's a very old Quaker.He loves his mom very much and tells her all the time. He was the one friend that didn't forget her when she was laid up in the house for 5 1/2 yrs. He calls for her every morning.all in all, he's a great bird. So pass it along BEAVIS for BOTW and VOTE for him. He will be so thrilled. Thanks so much. Love,BOBA (Beavis U. *%$#@head )PLEASE HELP!!!!

  Hello, ¿Mr? Darwin! `Ü´
I am the third in our flock to visit you on your new BirdChannel profile page! Momma has been reading to me about you on both my Baby Fister Leah's and my OLDER Frother TidBit's pages, and from your own and your late Frother Sebastian's pages too. Rosalie Hale Bopp was our Big Fister, and the founding member of our flock. (Momma still has her page up on the BirdChannel, if you would like to visit her there.) TidBit and Miss Rose never got to be very good friends, even though they 'roomed' together for 5 years. And I was only beginning to know her myself. I just came home to my new family in late July of this year. Rose and I only had a couple of months together, but she came to meet me and get to be friends while I was still living at the bird store. (We called it 'Camp Get Acquainted'.) ~~ Momma has been very quiet on the BirdChannel since Rosalie went to the Rainbow Bridge, and so I have not met very many of the new birdies in the past couple of months. But when we read about you, and saw that your mom is so excited about your flock that she wouldn't let something as silly as not having a photograph of you keep her from setting up your page, Momma knew right where we needed to start making new friends for me! Isn't it wonderful, ¿Mr? Darwin, when your parront is just bursting like that to share you with everybirdy?! ~~ Momma and I saw that you were blessed at The Blessing of the Animals, and we are totally intrigued! We haven't, however, been able to find that 'neat story' on anybirdy's page. Would you be willing to share it with us? And, would you kindly give your mom the benefit of your cooperation in front of the camera lense, Dear ¿Sir?, so that those of us who are waiting so patiently to finally take in your loveliness can have our efforts rewarded? (Parrot-sonally speaking, I don't seem to have very much patience to exercise in such matters.) ~~ I fear that I should apologize for being so bold as to make such forward requests of you at our first meeting; especially since I am calling on you first! I am not normally so forward. And Momma has been trying to bring me up in the tradition of a Southern Belle. But, I am eager to meet new birdies and find new friendships of my own. I hope you will forgive me. And I hope I can look forward to a visit from you very soon. Until then...`Ü´

Come visit me, `Ü´ Ruby Francesca Begonia.

  lol, your picture is cute. Did you draw that yourself? I know cockatiels are very talented. My little brother Taz can do everything us big birds can. That turky was delicous wasn't it? I'm not ashamed at all. It must have been a very bad bird for its owners to pluck him bald and cook him! Here's a vote. Calypso

  I'm a pearl--some kind of a pearl!
Oh, yeah, I forgot to tell you guys, I'm a pearl, probably pied, and maybe cinnamon pied. Mom's just figuring out all the pearl combinations. When her neighbor finally gets a good photo of me (maybe later today?) y'all can give me your opinions on what all mutations I might be showing.

  Hi! I'm Darwin!
You might recognize the "portrait" above; it's recycled from Sebastian's site before he had a photo. Mom has realized I'm probably female,and won't be losing my pearling, so she's only waiting for my new tailfeathers to finish coming in so she can have my glamour portrait done. (I even have natural mascara feathers!) I'm beginning to develop a distinctive personality, but don't have many stories to tell you yet. Just wait! Come on back later and see what the gang's up to.

Come visit me, Moby, Darwin & In Memory of Sebastian.
