Mom always wanted a bird, and a parakeet just would not do. She did some research, thought a big bird would take to much time as she in one who does not just get a animal and cage or fence them, so she choose a pionus. Now she had to find one. Luckly she found a lady who breed all kinds of birds and became friends with her. She choose me right after I hatch, boy was I ugly then. she came over all the time and feed me with the help of the breeder and after what seemed a long time took me to her house. We have been together ever since. Mom and I worked with cub scouts for 12 years, my name means respected leader. I went to a lot of Pow wows and events as mom was a Round Table commissioner and had lots of fun. Now we do genealogy with dad and I travel with them going to historical societies ( I even have my own card with some of them) and cemeteries to find the deceased. And of course I have to help mom with the furry cat family when home, playing with them and whistling for them. What a Great life I have.. Awards

Hi! My name is Akela

I am a Pionus from Springville, NY.

noisy, good boy, buddy boy. bird brain, Bloomer.

24 years old   M


Chicken wing bones...okay I will take them with meat on them too.

mom's shoulder, on top of cage, where ever there are people to watch, cemeteries.

cigarette smoke, bugs, Q-tips, people eating near me and not sharing!!!!

Takes care of me and treats me very very well. I get to travel with them and have been to several states! I do make a great motel room alarm, if anyone walks in. My owner has 4 cats that I get to play with. I hide under the couch and sneak out to pull there tail when they walk by. I love to grab their toys and run away with them, they chase me but are not sure what to do next, so they yell for mom to come and help them. I love that the most!!

whistling at people with no feathers, not doing anything when other people are around..

play, sleep and keep my owner surprise at what I can and choose not to do!.

  Hi Akela
I'm a blue-head Pionus living in Utah and am 21 years old. Just wondering how you are doing? I had a bout of Avian TB and am recovering from it nicely (still on meds). I like to check with other 'mature' (are we ever really mature...haha) Pionus' and see how they're doing.

Come visit me, Peeps & Silver.

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 Akela
Forgot to mention a few things when we voted so here goes.Gus loves chicken bones too and if it got some meat on it that is good also. Mom got my baby pictures on cause she kept taking pictures when I was only 2 weeks old at the store and getting weaned till I got home in November. Mom put money down on me right away and visited me every week till I could finally come home and took pictures so that is why there are different ones on of me. I love how your mom added on your page and its great how you get to travel with them. My mom is into geneology also. The whole trouble is she can knew her grandfather came from Ireland (said he came from Scotland so that took a wile to figure out) and went back to find her gr grandparents but that is all she can find so far on him. Other parts of the family were here in the states so not hard to find out more on them. Gus and chi chi would like to travel with mom and dad but Gus got this huge cage and Chi chi makes a lot of noise hihihi. Cheech to you later my friend.

Come visit me, ~~Gus~~ & Chi chi RIP my sweet girl..

  Hello from The Konawa Oklahoma Gang
Hi Akela, Patrick here, somebirdie needs our prayers. We don't know if Captain Cook (Umbrella Cockatoo missing in Alaska) was found or not. When mom blogged his parronts about his adventures several weeks ago, they said he usually does it in the summer and is not too cold. It can't be summer there now. Do you know anything about cockatoos being trained as homing birds? I had never heard of it until I read his bio. He was trained in Hawaii it said. Here is a vote for you. We will step on the vote buttons for your flock as well. Not much time to blog today.

  Hello from The Konawa Oklahoma Gang
Welcome to BC. We want to be your friends. As you can tell we live in oklahoma. Today we have freezing rain...DREARY....Can't be sad though.....My favorite day of the year is comming March 17. My skin sis thought of St. Patrick's Day when she first saw me. It was my green feathers she said. You know Quakers are not Irish we just love to celebrate.
