I have a website, www.parrot-and-- conure-world. com and I collect pictures and stories to help people decide what bird is for them.

In researching parrots, I really liked the Yellow Sided GC.

Then, I saw a Yellow Sided Green Cheeked Conure waiting in line for the Vet one day and decided I had to have one.

Later, I called my breeder friend and she had just finished hand feeding Widget out, so I went that day and brought her home.

Hi! My name is Widget

I am a Green-Cheeked Conure from Ross, TX.

Silly Widget, Missy Widget, Brat Bird, Little Toot

10 years old   F

Green-Cheeked Conure

Scrambled egg, dried blueberries, black cherry juice, and corn.

The back of my dad's collar, tucked inside someone's hand on their chest, and any tent in any cage. I guess I like Buddy the Green Cheek boy I share my cage with. But he gets on my nerves sometimes.

I want to go to bed when I want to go to bed. I want to be on the playstand near the kitchen when anyone is in there just in case they may share something with me. If they forget to invite me I will say my name over and over again until they remember to invite me.

My owner, Widget is the cuddliest bird I have ever had. She will almost always be content to just lay on someone's chest with their hand covering all but her head. She has never bit anyone that I know of.

She says her name when she wants to be held. That is why we named her Widget, she is always making that sound.

She is so beautiful, who can resist her?

Even though I'm begging to come out to be with my human pets, I will run back into my tent several times before I will get on their finger. It's a really fun game I play several times a day. :o).

My name is Ces Erdman and I am a huge bird dork! At the moment there is not a Bird Club in Wilmington, NC. So, I decided to start one myself! Come to find out, there are a lot of bird lovers in the Wilmington area and no where to express our interests. In the beginning this site will be a way to communicate with other bird lovers, ask questions, find birds to adopt, read interesting articles, share bird links, find bird sites, and of course share pics of our babies! Maybe as interest grows, we will be able to start a real Wimington NC Bird Club. If you have any suggestions please let me know. Please visit the new site at or e mail me at

Come visit me, Moulin Rouge, Bo & Riki.

  Greetings from Oscar and Gidget
Just waddling thru the profiles and came across a very sweet-faced wittle Widget. Mom wants a yellow-sided GCC so bad. We don't think that's a good idea at all! We want all her attention and her food. It's bad enough we have to fight over Mom to begin with, not to mention the tiels...Trying to convince her your pic is enough, but uh-oh, we think she wants one more now...Come over and play on our pages sometime. Pecking a vote for wittle Widget...

Come visit me, Oscar the Green Cheek & Gidget.

  Hey Widget
Mommy has been so busy with doctor visits and vet visits this week plus having 5 out of 6 grandkids here. The only time we have had together was when we go pick up skin brother from school. Yup, Mommy has allowed me to go with as it has been so nice. Well, got to fly. Beaked the vote thingy and left a birdy hug for you. Have a great weekend

  Hi Widget!
Hello friend. How's you week passing by? I hope it's going by well. It's been sprinkling every now and then here. And our mama has to quiet us down every second because her family is still sleeping. I guess we are kinda TOO loud. When everyone wakes up, we'll sing to our loudest though! Here's a vote and LOBH, Sunshine, Sparkle, and Snowy.

From one Yellow-sided to another. I'm Pebbles I am a young fid. I wanted to stop by and say hi and peck your vote button. Mom and I couldn't help but notice your picture at the bottom. Is that you? The reason we are asking is because we have the same photo. When I was at the breeders my mom ask someone on a forum if they would go by and take a photo of me cause she lived so far away well this person sent her the same photo and said I was sitting on his finger. I think this person must have lied. Stop by and visit sometime. Pebbles

Come visit me, Angel Charlie (*Popeye is my girl*).

  Hello from Caymus
Hi Widget! Just flying around the BC today meeting new birdies. Had to stop and say hello to you, especially since I'm just slightly partial to Conures (grin)! My mommy has been on your mommy's website and really likes it. It was consulted before bringing me home. And for sure, there's no way mom would get rid of me. I help her exercise pushing by toys onto the floor so she can hop around when she steps on them, I help her clean my cage by tossing out all the food I don't like or am done with, and I wake her up bright and early in the morning so she's not late for work. hehehe Well anyway, here is a vote for you and a happy Friday hug. Fly by and say hello some time!

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

  Tweety needs your votes for her poem. Her foot had to be amputated Feb. 26th due to the main blood supply being cut in her leg. We had to separate her from her cage mate. I wanted to get her a big cage to move (fly around) in and after paying 258.00 for her leg to become amputated we could not afford to buy her the cage of her dreams. We notice that she flies a little to get around her cage and can defiantly use a bigger one. Thank you; please visit her web site at

Come visit me, Tweety, Frosty and Ringo.

Hi Widget

I went to your web site. It's really nice.
I am hoping to update the link for eagle creek exotics to the new web site for our nest boxes.

We also have a normal green cheek in our group. Her name is Cricket. She is a breeder bird with a very cute personality. She loves to bob and dance up and down when our Mom talks to her. She does lots of little squeaks and noises and gets all excited.

We are thinking of adding some of our flock pictures and stories to your site...
