I met my Mom after her cockatiel had died and she wanted another little buddy to hang out with. It just so happened her best friend Sheri discovered me at the pet shop and brought my future Mom in to meet me. I turned on the charm and she took me home.

Hi! My name is Gidget

I am a Conure from Lansing, MI.

Gidgie, Putters, Wubby, Whoozer, Scooby-booby, Scubby-bubby, Chicken Little-Little Chicken, Moldy Chicken...What exactly is my name again???

13 years old   F


Whatever Mom is having...

on Mom

Don't even try getting me to talk! I will yell if you repeat a word to me more than 3x. And then to really get the point across, I will bite you on the nose! Oh, and don't forget that annoying little green cheek, Oscar who thinks he can share MY Mom with me...

My mom and I cuddle under fleece blankies together and she even made me my very own cage blankie and tucks me in every night. She almost always gives me my own little bowl of whatever she is eating (as long as it's birdie safe, of course!)

I HATE Mom's silver rings and bracelets. I don't like nail polish or anything on Mom's hands. Oh, and I freak out if someone comes into my house with a hat on. Nail clippers get thrown across the room if I see them. Mom's water bottles are meant to be attacked..

Nail clippers are evil and must be destroyed!!!.

  Hi from Maxie the WonderBird!
Hey Gidget! I'm so glad you liked my festive pics. Trouble is, every time I get a new pic my human manages to sneak in a cat. Bad enough I have to put up with them at home. I learned to call one, I say "Smoke! Come here, Come on, Come HERE!" Believe it or not, the other day she actually came over to the cage area. I was on top in the play area so I dropped my plastic ring on her I get the impression that the next time I call her she won't come....Hope you and your family have a great Thanksgiving! Any big plans? We're cooking at home but it will just be my human and her mom and one of the neighbors.....Cya...

Come visit me, Maxie WonderBird -Thanks for BOTD! & 10 Grand HOF Club - Welcomes DIXIE!!.

  Hi Gidget
That is just the cutestpicture I have ever seen. I'm not sure if my dad will get any good pic of me. I'm a little funny around cameras and cell phones and everything else that's new to me. I'm sure in time, dad will get plenty of shots of me. He's pretty sneaky with the camera.
Here's a vote for you.

You hate hats too? Wow, that's a relief. I thought I was the only one.:) I like fleece blankets too. Thanks for the welcome. I have only been a member for a few hours and I have already made some friends. I don't quite understand the votes completely yet, but I voted for you and Oscar.

  Hi from Max (the WonderBird)!
Hey Gidget! Your avatar picture is so cute! Actually, that's one of the two felines that lives here with me. I would have shown them both stalking me except that you're limited to 50 "parts" and I wouldn't have had enough! Cya...

You get a vote because you do look like me - CUTE! You also like cuddly blankets like me. You also seem to dislike things like I do. We conures have very strong opinions about things!

You asked for it…YOU GOT IT ! Yes, indeed, Mom and I have been workin’ on a way for me to satisfy my urge to explore AND satisfy Mom’s directive for me to STAY OUT OF TROUBLE ! ! (At least I THINK this will do it…) ~~ Buddy and I have decided that we’d like to ‘explore’ our creative side; try somethin’ new; jump into a new project; STAY ON THE GROUND ! And we thought we’d try our luck at the visual arts. You know…movies, TV. ~~ You might have noticed that I seem to excel at the dramatic. So, having been told I’d be a natural at it, I’m gonna try my hand at acting! And since Buddy’s talents lie in organization and presentation (i.e. his reputation as a ‘Master of Disguise’), AND he has one REALLY WILD IMAGINATION, he’s gonna take on the role of Producer/Director. ~~ Now, obviously, this is gonna hafta be a scaled down version. Since we operating on a scaled down BUDGET ! Each day, we’ll put a scene from a well-known movie or TV program in my main pic (‘cause we just can’t afford a real moving picture production), so you can see what we’ve been workin’ on. BUT…and here’s were YOU come in…I’m gonna be needin’ co-stars. So, you’ll just hafta take a peek everyday to see who’s gonna be in the ‘show’ with me! ~~ And to make it interesting, I’m gonna give you a clue in my note to you each day about what movie or TV program the picture is gonna be from tomorrow! Just a little way to keep havin’ fun with all my new BirdChannel f[eathe]riends. No big deal. Not a contest or anything like that. Just a game. I think I’ll call it “What’s My Line?” (Get it? Movie, script, line…) ~~ Hope you’ll play along. Watch for the first clue tomorrow. AaaaaAA!! Scream at ya again soon! CRJake (Ö> Trouncin’ on your vote button on my way out…

  Hi from Max (the WonderBird)!
Hey Gidgie. I was just telling Oscar that my person wishes that I was a cuddler like you two are. I guess maybe amazons aren't generally that way, but hey, at least I don't bite her! (everyone else, but not her!). Hope the weather is nice up north....It was nice enough for me to go outside again in the small cage...Cya...

Sorry we haven’t been around most of the week. Mom had 5 pet sitting jobs that she had to go to 3 times a day and she had to go to school too.

  Hello from St. Patrick D'Bird
Happy Lord's Day, Patrick here, I am so happy to be a part of BC. When Mom got home from church read a Limerick about me. It was written by my new friend Chiquito in WA. You can stop by and read it if you want. The limerick for today is a belated hatch day greeting for our friend Sassy. LIMERICK OF THE DAY:......... ............. ............. ............. .................Happy Hatch Day Sassy, heard you’re one. ............. ............. Wake up the flock and have a li’l fun. ............. .......... Sittin’ in the window,...... ............. ............. ............. .... Munchin on a nacho. ............. ............. ............. ......... “Sun Conures Rock” til the day is done........ (Dedicated to my friend Sassy, Sun Conure, from Hamilton, OH. Hatch date was 3-28).. (3-30-08). ........Here is a vote for you from all of us. Patrick, Fortune, Lonnie, Cotton Ball, Slate and Mica

  Hiya, Gidget! (Ö>
Geez… Ya know, if Buddy’s and my mom had just not bugged out of our ‘Winners’ Circle Party’ last Monday without so much as a “By your leave…”, WE WOULDN’T BE IN THIS MESS! Serves ‘em right though, that they should have to worry about where we are and if we’re safe. Myself, I’m just worried about whether or not we’re gonna make it back home! ~~ When we took off Wednesday evening, it was a great plane ride: Clear skies, smooth air. But BOY! When that tornado came up Thursday…. We STILL haven’t figured out where we are! Well, except for that sign that said “Welcome to MUNCHKINLAND”. But that still didn’t tell us much. Then all those little people singin’ and dancin’ at us, and tellin’ us to “Follow the Yellow Brick Road!” And this suppos-ed witch-type lady bird that looked awfully familiar. It’s enough to make a coupla fids NERVOUS! ~~ But, you know how the saying goes: “When in MUNCHKINLAND, do as the Munchkins do”…AND FOLLOW THE SILLY ROAD!!! ~~ So, here we are (who-knows-where), flyin’ along mindin’ our own business, and we come upon THESE three CHARACTERS. Maybe it’s just me, but I’d swear I recognize these guys too! Now, they want us to spend all day in a meeting with them doin’ some kind of strategic planning, or some such silly stuff. We’re supposed to be findin’ a way to get home, not strategizin’ with some looney tunes! And I wanted to get in touch with our friends back home to see if THEY could offer some suggestions. Maybe these guys have access to some ‘OZ-Net’ or somethin’ Buddy and I could use to send a message. ~~ Well, if it gets us to the end of this adventure, I suppose we can handle it…as long as they don’t forget to leave a vote when they send our notes out for us! AaaaaAA!! Scream at ya again soon! CRJake (Ö>

  Hiya, Gidget! (Ö>
CRAZY?! Who's crazy? I'M not crazy! Are YOU crazy? Not ME. I'm not crazy either! Well, if it' not US who's crazy...must be THEM! ! ! ~~ Well, OK…so I got the plane landed alright. It seemed a little bumpy at one point, but nothing serious. The air strip was a little odd. I don’t think I’ve ever seen one made of yellow bricks before, but that’s OK too, I guess. Buddy said he saw a sign that said “Welcome to MUNCHKINLAND”. Where in creation is THAT? And WHAT is a MUNCHKIN?! ~~ And now here’s this lady character in a big fluffy dress….And I just know that I KNOW HER from somewhere. ~~ [Oh Boy! Buddy here. One thing I’ve learned about my pal, Jake, is that sometimes he can be a little DENSE! That ‘lady character’ is none other than HIS FISTER, Rosalie Hale Bopp! Of Rainbow Bridge fame. I just got back from a special visit with her after my last vacation. Of course, I guess I can’t fault him too much for not recognizing her right off the bat. They never actually met!] ~~ Is there anybirdy who can tell us where to go from here, to get back home? If we don’t show up soon, our moms are gonna have a KNIPTION FIT! AaaaaAA!! Scream at ya again soon! CRJake (Ö> Oh yeah, and those little people over there said they’d be happy to dance on your vote button for us!

  Hello from St. Patrick D'Bird
Hi, Patrick here with a vote for you. Yeah, this morning I was just waiting to jump up on Mom's shoulder and help feed the rest of the flock. Fortune and I both helped. Fortune squawed on about "crackers" a word I have never used (I don't like them) so I decided to let Mom know I could say it to. She was so proud of me.......WISH YOU A HAPPY WEEKEND, Please visit my fiblings too as I am blogging for us all. Cheech later........ ............. ................LIMERICK OF THE DAY:......... ............. ............. ............This bow-legged U-too is quite the man.......... ...............eats mashed taters faster than a toucan....... ............. ............. ................ He can not hack, ............. ............. ............. ............. ...... anything that’s black........ ............. ..........
