Hi! My name is Gizmo

I am a Pacific Parrotlet from Jefferson City, MO.

Lil Buddy

6 years old   M

Pacific Parrotlet

Sunflower & safflower seeds, coconut, Whole Grain Cheerios, papaya, and now hulled oats and buckwheat. Likes blueberries, shredding baby carrots, and hunting for the bean in a piece of green bean.

Sleeps in a plastic Slinky. Out of the cage he likes sitting on my shoulder.

Hands in the cage, but we're working on that...

He whistles a lot to me and gives me lots of toys.

Likes harmonicas & guitar solos in songs, and salsa/merengue/- Latin music. He calls me, "what 're you doin", to watch him dance so he can have a treat. Will talk constantly when I'm in the other room. "Dance Gizmo" and "dance dance dance" are his other favorites. Also says "Hey buddy","Hey lil buddy","silly boyyyyyy", "are you being a good boy", "are you being silly", "are you upside-down", "are you dancing", "come 'ere Gizmo". In the last couple weeks he's learned "where's Gizmo? peekaboo!" and "are you gonna talk to me?" and he's trying to say "lost it!" and "want a treat?".

He doesn't like when he poops on me so he usually quickly flings it somewhere else before I can wipe it off!

He doesn't like cameras but gets excited when I'm on my cell phone and will babble on and on.
.

If you can't join them, say "what 're you doin" louder and louder until they join you!.

  Hi there! Bailey here. I think spring is finally come to in Arkansas. My mom is so glad. I like the warm days because Mom lets me stand on top of my cage and she gives me a shower. I like it! She gives my brothers and sister a shower too but they have to stay in their rooms while I am out because I might want to taste them. HA! HA! I get baths all year but when it is cold not so many. Moms afraid I will get sick. I have a brother that is a cockatel named Spike, a brother that is a parakeet named Benny and a sister that is a parakeet her name is Sunny. Mom will put pictures out when she gets time. Here's a vote for ya!

Come visit me, Bailey.

  Hi Gizmo!
Good morning! It's the weekend! Yay!! Tomorrow is Peaches 16th bird-day so we're trying to figure out what to do to celebrate. It's still so cold outside, so we'll need to stay indoors where it's warm. Hope you have a great weekend!

Come visit me, Pretti, Peaches (RIP 04-Nov-2012), Moonbeam (RIP 10-10-2008) & Cracker.

  Hi Gizmo!
You are very cute! Mom was thinking about getting a parrotlet, but she found me instead. I'm glad she did! Thanks for the visit. I wish I could have got back to you sooner, but mom has been busy with school and her pet sitting business lately. So, we don't get much computer time anymore. Hope you had a great day and here's a vote for ya! BHAK, Crystal

Hello! Happy February 26th! Well, Thanks for stopping by Pogo's page. Here's a vote! Pogo is still recovering and his feet aren't showing many signs of improvement, so he still needs you to think and pray for him. I'll fly by later. Here's a vote!

Hi Gizmo, You sound like a fun bird. We don't have a slinky. 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.....
