Hi! My name is Frank

I am a Quaker from Franklin, VA.

Franky, I suppose that is his only nickname

11 years old   M


Oh, I am not that picky. I love herb tea for drink(bird safe caffeine free) and anything you are eating will do for food.

I love hanging out on my owners's shoulder, or if you insist that I can not be on you right now, the top of my very tall playgym.

When someone ignores me! Peter, who thinks he is my friend, just grates on me as well. I can not do anything to him, I guess I kind of gave up, but he will not stop trying to be friends.

She is my best friend, so I am very tolerant of anything she wants to do, though I can not be polite to other people much of the time. She gives me treats and plays and sings with me.

I don't do quirky. Every one thinks I am a genius, for I use my humongous vocabulary corectly. Quirky, humph..

Not my idea, I don't agree, and is that dangerous!?.

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 support us by e mailing us at or visit the new myspace page at

Come visit me, Moulin Rouge, Bo & Riki.

  Hi it's me Michille!!!!
My favorite kind of toy is the coconut and corn one my mom gave me a month ago. It is like this... the coconut and corncobs go every other one on this thick piece of rope and you hook it on to the cage. We chewed it up and there is pieces lying on the floor of the cage and we still chew those pieces up. My mom is up to the challenge to have a Quaker in her home. My mom also went on a site that sells or trades birds and she found a Catalina Macaw that this person wants to give away because she doesn't have time for him. She got the bird from her cousin. It's close bye too. I might get a big brother. She said his name was Charlie. Wow! That's so cool! I hope we can get him. When my mom opens up her shop he can test all the toys and food out too. Well, got to fly. Left you a vote. Best wishes with kisses! Michille♥

  Hi Frank
Flying in to give you a vote. The yellow is birdie hut You can get it at any pet store. The green and Pink toy I'm in is a cat toy it is a tunnel that you can crawl in the middle andout both ends it belongs to our Kitten Sassy she lets me play in it. Mommy either makes our toys or gets them from PetsMart or PetCo the ones on sale. She has even gotten them from Wal Mart or even used Dog and Cat toys as long as they are safe for us. She has found toys for us at Garage Sales and Good Will and brings them home and cleans them really well she stairalizes them even before we get to play with them. She has gotten toys from Bird Fairs.She even has taken clolred shoestrings and empty toilet paper rolls and made a chew toys for us and hung it in our cage to chew on. Mommy says by buying the toys on sale she can buy us lots of toys on sale and we are happy and she saves money. I can be a handful at times and get in a nasty mood but other then that I'm a sweety hehehehe Well better fly off here now Hugs Boo - berry

  Hello there
Hi Frank! Thank you and your flock for visiting. It is so much warmer today. I feel so sad for our neighbor cockatiel. The cockatiel is an outside cockatiel but I think they leave him/her out at night and it is so cold! I wish her parents would bring her in, I wish we could adopt her. Well, have a great day. Here is a vote.

  Hi Frank!!!!
You look really in deep thought in your picture on the top. I'm kind of getting used to feet now. I just didn't get a chance to change it yet. My mom loves birds she wants to get a blue Quaker parrot and a green one like you. She's thinking about opening up a pet shop to sell pet supplies but not really any pets. She's going to breed my friend Jacques over the summer with Princess. She can't breed me yet though. Macy is my sister, and I don't think I want to do that. Well, it's been fun chatting. Come by soon! Michille♥ P.S. Here's a vote!

  Happy Halloween Frankie ( a little late...)! I'm all used to the pumpkin now, thanks for asking. I am afraid of the camera, too (big surprise), that's why pictures of me are all so blurry! The dog Zoe is here again and Sara mada a costume for her! She had a pretty pom-pom collar and a silver princess hat- she did NOT like the hat! The cats wore ruffly halloween collars, too. I was NOT jelous!

  I'm sure your pumpkin is fine, Sara bought one for me today! She showed it to me from a distance so I wouldn't get scared, then every day she'll move it closer so I won't be startled by it. Yes, the sweet potato was delectable. I've been getting lots of pear and apple lately, too (oh boy!!!). A chickadee flew into the house today! I guess it wanted to live the good life with us, but Sara caught it and put it back outside. I screamed and screamed, but I wasn't really scared, I was just fooling...

  Sara says to thank your mom for the get-well wish. I got lots of new toys about a month ago, but I really need new perches (so does Tedi, but I don't care!). I was just thinking about those bike rides- I would be so scared! Do you like it outside? Pye used to go out when Sara hung the wash and I acted SO jelous, but I wasn't really bacuase I'm TERRIFIED of outside! Mmmmmm, I smell sweet potato! Sorry, I got distracted. I would like a little pumpkin of my own to play with, Sara says she'll look for one for me. She says the old ones might have lead paint, but I think she just doesn't want to share!

  Frankie, I'm so glad Lola is getting better! Your mom must be very smart to know what to do for her!~ what a lucky bird Lola was to come live with the right person (and you of course!). Sara loves fall, too. Halloween is her favorite holiday and she collects vintage halloween stuff (so do a lot of other people, so she can't afford much)- one thing she collects that most Halloween collectors scorn is plastic pumpkins. She keeps them out all year on top of some cupboards in the family room and I am NOT allowed to chew them! Here sister's always buying her sickeningly cute Halloween stuff for Christmas, Sara thanks her then gives it to charity! Sara's sick again! She has one of those cold/flu-type things. I'm happy because she didn't go to her morning class, she's hanging out with us instead. I used to chew on my new branches untill all the bark was stripped off, but I grew out of that. I am about due for a cage makeover, though...

  Sara was sick too (a LOT of stuff going around...). I liked it because she stayed home from school, but I didn't like it when she had to spend time in bed because then I couldn't see her! No new birds yet, but Sara's still looking. Lola's probably making progress but you don't notice because you see her every day. Like, maybe she plays with toys now that she never had in her life before, and you did that because you showed her how! That's great that you mom's going to make toys to sell, I wish her the best! And, you get to play with all her prototypes!

  That's great that you and Lola get along so well, I'm glad you're happy! If Sara ever sees a green-cheek that needs a home she promised to get it for me. She's ok, Sky was a good bird, but his time had come. Windy's ok, but she's louder than normal. The good thing is that none of us are showing any signs of illness! Plus, that Zoe-dog is here and she's great at cheering us all up. I trust her so much that yesterday I climbed down to the floor of my cage to forage (I'm not supposed to, but hey I'm a bird!) and I didn't care that Zoe was walking right past me! Sara say's I'm a very brave bird and Zoe is a VERY good dog!

  Hooray for the new quaker!
What a lucky bird you are! I'm sure you'll be friends, she's probably just shy. Bummer news from me, though, Sky died this morning. He was a little sick but Sara was medicating him. He most likely would have recovered, but sometime last light Windy beat him up pretty badly and chewed a hole in his head! By the time Sara got up he was in shock. She tried to warm him in a hospital cage, but it was too late- sigh. Sara took everything out of their big cage and disenfected it- it's like new! Next week if Windy's healthy Sara's going to get another 'keet- maybe three more.

  Hey Frankie! Sorry I was gone for so long, but Sara went away- that was awful!- then she had her last week of school (exams, final projects, etc.). So yeah, Sara went up north for a week, leaving me behind with the cats and NONE of us were happy about it! My only consolation was that she left my forage toys chock full of nutri-berries- yum! Actually, that's all I ate the whole time she was gone (although she left me a whole dish of pellets and another one of seeds) and I didn't mind that AT ALL! I missed the tv sounds, though, and she let me out of the cage for a LOOOONG time when she got home! I've finally gotten used to the toys she bought at the bird fair for me and even untied the shredders! I think they're fun, but I'd rather shred one of Sara's shirts! I hope you're enjoying your new toys!
