Hi! My name is Sweet Pea

I am a Parrotlet from Merkel, TX.

Sometimes I'm called "Linnie" which is short for Lineolated Parakeet. Mom had to select Parrotlet for my bird species because Lineolated Parakeet wasn't in the list, but I am really a Lineolated Parakeet from Central America!!!!! (You can read about Linnie's in the February BirdTalk Magazine)

7 years old   F

Parrotlet

apple, millet, soy beans, and steamed broccoli

my little "happy hut," wicker basket handle and my mom's shoulder

I hate to be excluded when my family is eating at the table. I also don't like it when mom puts my bird diaper on!!!!

the love and attention she gives me:)

I like to hang upside down..

A little sweetness goes a long way:).

Happy Lord's Day, Cotton Ball here. I have good tidings of great joy!.. Yes, really, we are doing just great, even though, Mom was away Friday evening and Saturday to a Ladies Retreat.. She brought home another Society Finch. A "Linda" she hopes. Lonnie was way too excited. Ellie or Ellery which ever it is, is not impressed.. Today we got baby tiel number 3. Out of 5 eggs two were not fertile..Everybirdie else got millet and treats....It was just a big party. Here is a vote for you..Patrick has his LIMERICK OF THE DAY posted under his motto. Check out todays Featured Friend and remember to stop and vote for my brothers too.. peep peep later Cotton Ball.

  Pecking out some votes tonight!
Mom has been busy since coming home. She met the new cockatiel sister.... and thinks she may be a he! The very yellow face on a grey makes her think so. No matter! He makes a lot of noises, too! That should be fun! She isn't sure when he'll be moving in, but no matter! It will be fun! Then we can both try to drive daddy crazy! Yay!
Mom is also hoping to get a parrotlet this summer! How much fun is that! She saw you and fell in love!

Kiwi here, pecking out votes for today!
Mom said she is on spring break... and happy to not be looking at students for 1 week, whatever that means. She is really happy, however. When she is happy, I am happy! Mom has also decided she wants to bring home a parrotlet. This BC thing has been great for her!

  Hi Sweet Pea!
I’m a ‘new fid on the block’ too! I can get what it’s like to have to try to break the ice, and start making new friends here on the BirdChannel. I may live in the South, but I’m FROM the North, so I know ‘breaking ice!’ So I said to myself, I said “Self, wouldn’t it be easiest to start off talking to fids who are just as nervous as you are? And what’s more reasonable to talk about than being new?!” My good pal Buddy and I are in a contest too..maybe you would like to play!! ~~ Come on over and visit when you can. I’m sure we can find something we have in common! Here’s a ‘Welcome to the BirdChannel’ vote for you. AaaaaAA!! Scream at ya again soon! CRJake (Õ>

  Hope your St Pat's was chirpy!
Stopping by to hit some votes this evening. Mom gave me a bath and let me try broccoli tonight. If she eats it, it must be good! She is trying to convince me to stop being so picky, but it is hard. The broccoli was kind of fun to eat, so I plan on trying it again! Plus, it is green! What a perfect snack for St. Pat's day.
Hope you have a wonderful week!
