I had always wanted a bird as a pet. My daughter told me about Buddy, who was found by a friend of hers in a culdesac in Eastern Oregon. Unable to locate his owner, he was brought over to Western Oregon and the family that had taken him in decided that he was too messy. I received Buddy as a Mother's Day gift in 2005. We do not know how old he is. He has been a wonderful friend and a constant source of entertainment.. Awards

Hi! My name is Buddy

I am a Cockatiel from Carlton, OR.


8 years old   M


Millet sprays
Cooked potatoes

My left shoulder or left hand.
The window sill above his cage.

Getting his cage covered at bedtime.
Other people getting too close to me when he is on my shoulder.

I love my owner because she lets me sit on her shoulder when she is doing her household chores or dinking on the computer. She also makes sure that there is a fresh supply of millet on hand for me and waits patiently as I "preen" her hair and face. She makes sure that my nails are trimmed and flight feathers clipped so that I can never get lost again. I love my owner because she knows that I love to get my head feathers scratched and my neck nuzzled at the same time. She also showers me with kisses when she tucks me in at night.

When Buddy gets his spritz-bath, he extends his wings out, fluffs up and, while staying in one spot, swoops around like he's flying.
He imitates barking dogs when he gets nervous.
Buddy loves to preen my hair and face when he is on my shoulder.
He loves whistling the theme from "Andy Griffith" and gets very excited and animated during the chorus of the song.

With entertainment like me, who needs TV..??.

  Hey Buddy
Good Monday morning to you and your flock. How's it going for you today? It is a beautiful day and I am hoping that we have warmer weather coming up. The snow melting and green grass. What a beautiful dream. Mommy said that when it gets warmer, I can go outside and take more car rides. Here's a vote. Birdy Hugs...

  Hi from Fortune, St. Patrick and Lonnie
Patrick here, I'm being good. The Lovies, Slate and Mica, won't let me sit on top of their cage, they nip at my toes. Then I moved to the top of the aquarium now that silly Mica, is trying to move in on my territory there. Daddy put him back in the cage. We were having to speak. At least I didn't try to nip him. hehe LOCK DOWN for MICA. hehe....My BC friend, Talker, the Cockateil's, baby is so cute. We love baby teils. We have six teil eggs in the nest box with Mrs. Skeeter and her husband Wishbone. Wishbone is a good daddy too. He seems to love caring for the babies more than Skeeter does. They are so funny. They should start hatching soon. Our Zebra baby needs a name that is not gender specific. Any Ideas? It is all white. They mature faster than teils do. It's new pic is on my (Patrick's) page. He took off flying when Mommy tried to take his pic this morning. heehee Well V4Y, Cheech to ya later,,,,xoxoxoxox Patrick, Lonnie and Fortune

Come visit me, St. Patrick D'bird loves Ruby Sue, Lonnie, Slate and Mica, Fortune & Cotton Ball "I'm Tiki's Girl".

  Hello Buddy! YOU like spritz baths as much as I do! It is the best part of the day. A few of the parakeets have taken to it too! Thank you so much for the message! I voted for you.

It's so neat that your friend Tweety can talk. I only wolf whistle and sing to Capone... Mom rescued him, I keep telling him he's PRETTY but he's not hearing it. Back to pestering the girl parakeets I suppose!

Come visit me, Wilbur & Monsieur Dijon the Grey Poupon.
