Hi! My name is Hillari-Elaine

I am a Cockatiel from Chesapeake, VA.

I referred to her as "baby bird" today; that irritated my spouse as he said "there ya go! just like all the other animals Ie: baby balls, baby kitty, now baby bird"!

8 years old   F


nutri ball treats/food

on my hand, on top of her cage, in her cage

everything at the moment since she's a new purchase.

that she's trying so hard! and one day I'm going to surprise her with my broad vocabulary! Meanwhile I impress her with my kisses!

Doing an ear-splittnig eagle-type screeching when I dont want to be handled! Beside that, doing absolutely nothing! *chirp* Did I mention poo'ing on whoever decided to hold me?.

I tweet with the best of 'em!.

  Hello Hillari-Elaine
So nice to meet you. You are a really beautiful cockatiel. Hope you are still having a great time with your new family. They couldn't have found a better friend than a 'tiel to start with. And you sound as though you really are happy with them, too. That makes us all feel so good for all of you. Mom got me, the orange-wing Amazon from a lady whose mom had me for 15 years & then died. Then she adopted 3 'keets from a lady who didn't want them any more. We lost Flicka, 1 of those 3, earlier this year & really miss her. She was the big cheese in her house. Before that, Mom adopted 3 more 'keets from a pet shop that someone had been trying to keep in a styrofoam cooler. They were pretty young & small when Mom brought them home. The manager of the store said they may have been about 6 mos old then. So now there are 5 of them in that house, & me in mine. The 1st week of Sept, Mom & Pop took me to the mountains. I love to go camping with them. Now they don't use the tent any more, & that's good. They have a camper & I can walk or fly around if I want to. I go outside with them in my small house & sit on the picnic table with them. That's so neat. We visited friends up there that have a dog named Buddy. We really like each other, too. And their new next door neighbor has a very young 'tiel named Buddy, too. We got to meet him, & he's neat. Hope we can be good friends. Please stop by & say hello any time. Here's a v4u & a wing hug from everyone here at our house.

Come visit me, Fred & Sunshine Birdie.

  Hello from Caymus
Hi Hillari-Elaine, and welcome to the birdchannel! It's great that your mom is trying to get over her fear of birds. It looks like you're already wiggling your way into her heart. (It doesn't take long since we are so cute and clever!) My daddy was never much of an animal lover either. There are two cats, two mice, a hedgehog, a canary, and many fish in our flock and he's always tolerated them but never really "bonded." I've been in my new home now for 6 months and I've got daddy wrapped around my little toe! And I think my positive influence on him has made him a little more friendly with the other members who have fur, feathers or quills, or gills. Daddy even calls me his little buddy and gives me kisses. That's how well us birds can cast our magical spell on humans. hehehe Well here is a vote and a big birdy hug. Fly by and visit me some time!

Come visit me, Blanche, Caymus & Peachy (2004-2010) - Thank you for BOTD!.

  From Hillbilly
Hi Hillari. I know what its like being in a new home, since I'm only 4 months old myself. I had a lot of help though. My older brother taught me everything I know. I watched him like a hawk. Don't worry, you're mommy will do fine. You sound more comfortable in your home after week 1 than I was. Welcome to the channel.

Come visit me, Redneck & Hillbilly & Whiskey & Bourbon.

  Going on 1 week...
I've been with my new owners going on one week now. I'm excited that they're teaching me all that they think I should know! I'm talked to all day long, handled numerous times per day, taken for walks around the house, get to socialize with the dog and cat who live here with me, get treats and new toys, etc. Living here is *much* better than being in that pet store. I'm looking forward to many years with my new owners!

Come visit me, Hillari-Elaine.
