We picked Derby out of the crowd at the pet store where he shared a home with about 25. He was very gentle and calm little did we know that he was sick.... Awards

Hi! My name is Derby

I am a Budgerigar from Edmonton, AB.


8 years old   M


With us all the time

None... he was full of life and friendly and cuddly from the get go

Somehow they must have known that I needed to share all the love in my heart before I said goodbye. I drifted off at home in loving hands rather than in a cold dark store...


Better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all....

  Hi Derby!
Happy New Year! I just flew by to say welcome to the Bird Channel! I hope that you are feeling better! My name is Jingle and I'm new kind a new here. I'm a baby lovebird. I've only been here a short time and already I've met so many nice birds and their parronts. You will, too! My friend Honey Bun sure was right when he was telling me about how friendly and nice everyone is here. I hope you can come by and visit me and maybe even Honey Bun, too. The weather here sure was cold! A couple of nights ago mom said it was 3 degrees with a wind chill of -12. Br-r-r! Mom was disappointed we didn't have a white Christmas. Instead we had a white New Year's. It snowed here off and on for two days! Today everything is melting. Mom doesn't like the cold but she does love looking at the snow out the window and it just wasn't around long enough. Of course it never is around long enough for mom because she grew in Massachusetts. Here's a vote for you! I hope we can come by for a visit! Feathery baby birdie kisses, Jingle

Come visit me, Miss Mimi Molly May Aug 5, 2012 Gone WIth My Heart, Sweetie, Dew Drop Aug 5, 2012 Gone With My Heart, Siesta-July 22, 2012 Gone with my heart!, Twinkie, Cookie, Honey Bun-04-11-2011 Gone With a Piece of My Heart, Cera-Once in a lifetime BBF-miss u! 2015, Jingle- BOTW April 26-May 3, 2009 & Murray (Oct 12, 2009 RIP-We miss You!).

  Dear Sweet Derby
We came to visit to offer our sympathy to Derby's family. We are so sorry for your loss. If you listen closely, I bet you can hear Derby singing to you from the Rainbow Bridge--where all birdies go when they pass away. There they are made whole again and are welcomed into a large flock of all those that have gone before them. I will say a little prayer for you. Birdie Hugs, Bella

Come visit me, Bella Blue--In Memory-- 3/26/2008.
