In the back of a noisy bird store, going out of business, a figure came walking toward me, in a lonely cage.

I looked at him and he looked at me, it was love at first sight!

When I got to my new home, I was a bit nervous and unsure.
But that all changed when he introduced me to apples...

I was in double love...
And because of that, he's still been my owner since August 18, 2005!

Hi! My name is Dusty

I am a Dusky-Headed Conure from Stroudsburg, PA.

Dusterz and Ms. Squawks-a-lot

11 years old   F

Dusky-Headed Conure

Um, apples!
Who wouldn't know that?!
And also mangoes.


My owner's shoulder and my super cool jungle gym!

Things that are strange and bigger than my head, and peaches! Yuck!

I love, ahem... LOVE it when my owner scratches the back of my neck! Ohh... It really hits the spot!

Then when he goes in the refrigerator, gets an apple, cuts it up and feeds it to me! Yummmie...


Going sideways on my sideway perch while eating...
Oh, come on! Do I even have to say it? APPLES!!
.

Gimme dat apple!.

  Hello Dusty...
Barney and Freddy here. We were just surfing the BC, checking out the other Duskies. I see you are fond of apples too! We prefer the Granny Smiths, but those red ones will do in a pinch. Stop by and check out our pages sometime. We have lots of pics to share!

Come visit me, Barney Bird, Nikki, Parker Parrot & Freddy.

......BEAVIS U. ----HEAD IS NO CHICK, ................HE IS OLD AND WISE, BUT NOT SICK. ............. ......... HE WAS LOST AND ALONE, ............. ............. ............... CAUGHT AND BROUGHT TO MOM'S HOME. ............. ................ FOR BIRD OF THE WEEK HE'S YOUR PICK! (Dedicated to my pal, Beavis U. ----Head, 28 year old quaker parrot from Virginia Beach, VA.
Hi, My name is SweetPepper and I am the campaign manager for my friend Beavis. Beavis is a 28yr old quaker who has a dream to be the next BOTW. He has tried before and lost, he was even beat out this past week by a fellow quaker. So I am campaigning extra hard this week for my friend and asking all my birdie friends to help by voting each and everyday. All you need to do is stop into his page each and everyday and kick that vote button off the top of his page, you don't even have to leave a blog each time. Help me in helping Beavis achieve his dream of becoming BOTW. Thank You , SweetPepper, campaign manager to BEAVIS FOR BOTW!

Hi Friends, (from the Konawa Gang) Mom had a sick skin kid to run to the doctor and the skin nieces school project to assist with. She had to help us blog late last night. And we still got to vote for our friends. Whew!....But the celebrating continues and St. Patrick keeps composing. We hear him pecking away in his cage as though it is a PC. hehe HERE IS TODAY'S LIMERICK: ............. ............ Our Mom welcomes angels and birds,...Tis the sweetest thing Dad ever heard,...when each morning she brings, ... all the FIDS out to sing....and showers them all with kind words.....ps..steppping on the vote button on the way out ...LOBH

  ST. PATRICK D'BIRD OF DEE WEEK -- THANKS YOU
Hi BBFFs, I am shocked. Your sweet honor has Mommy in tears. She always tells us to do our best to love others and we will recieve our rewards as God sees fit. BUT,I was thinkin' my wise friend Beavis would be BOTW. Hope you will vote for him every day this week as we have been......Well, friends I am not a poet but,I decided to spread my wings and try my feathers at limericks......Here is another from all of us that poked fun at ME! ............. ...............St. Pat will sit on his cage, if Mom he wants to engage, and nothing above, will wake up his love, a LOUD SQUAWK OR CHEECH is the rage.......Have a great week, Dad said we can't afford go on a world tour..However, some of the lesser known Oklahoma attractions are a possibility... Just have to wait and see....Love, Patrick and the flock.......

  Hello from the Oklahoma Gang
Good morning Patrick here, Our house is still a mess. I keep telling the construction workers, "Hello Baby" and wolf whistling at them. Mommy laughed and told Dad that is reversed. Usually the construction workers are whistling at the girls that walk by. Well here is a vote for you and the flock on our way out...xoxoxoxo

  Hi Dusty
Are you like me and having cabin fever. I so want to go outside, but mom says she can not take me anywhere because it is just too cold. Bummm..... It is warming up today and maybe, just maybe she will sneak me outside a little later today if it gets in the 40s. I love to hide inside her coat and pop my head out near the collar, we will just have to wait and see. have a great day. Akela

Come visit me, Akela.

  Hello from The Konawa Oklahoma Gang
Here is a Welcome vote for you. We hope to have you as a friend. There are so many fun things to learn and to do on BC. We laugh at each other and cry with each other as LIFE happens in our homes. We rejoice when our flocks grow and cry when we lose our loved ones...We are a happy birdie family reunion.
