Hi! My name is Oscar the Green Cheek

I am a Green-Cheeked Conure from Lansing, MI.

Lil' Nipper, Snugglebutt, Turkeybutt, Panini (I don't know why), Cheeky Beaky, Mommy's Lil' Duck...this could go on and on,'cause one nickname leads to another...

14 years old   M

Green-Cheeked Conure

I LOVE peanut butter, yogurt, grapes, figs, corn, cereal...

On top of my cage where Mom can't reach me to put me back in my cage:) Another fave is my Mom's shoulder or if she's laying down, I perch on her elbow. Oh, and don't forget Mom's shirt sleeve - I don't care if I have to SQUEEZE in, if there's a will, there's a way to get in there!

When Mom's out in the kitchen and doesn't let me sample whatever she's getting into. hmmmph, the nerve...Gidget, Mom's white-eyed conure...

Mom snuggles me all the time. She likes to eat alot and usually gives me something too.She picks up all my toys so I can throw them from the cage 2 seconds later.

Do I have to choose? I LOVE strangers, especially women. If I'm not afraid of what she/he is wearing, I hop on and run up to her/his shoulder. When it's time for the person to leave, I bite Mom when she tries to get me off my new friend..

OOOOHHHH, I wanna see, lemme see! Gimme, gimme, gimme!.

  Vote Beavis the Oldest Quaker for BOTM Page #56094
Hi everybirdie. My name is SweetPepper and I am on the campaign trail for my best friend ever, Beavis for BOTM. He is the oldest quaker at age 29 here on the BC. I think he deserves BOTM for his wisdom and strengths. He is a very quiet kind of bird but very loyal. He was my first really good friend that I met here on the BC. His mom is a wonderful person who can't spend a lot of time on the computer to campaign for him so I have dedicated myself as his campaign manager. I did it for him when I got him elected BOTW. So please help me make his day by becoming April's BOTM. Thank you, SweetPepper, campaign manager for BEAVIS FOR BOTM!!!

  Hi from Maxie the WonderBird!
Hey Oscar! Good to see you! Thanks for the compliment on my Biker pic. That's because of a party that's going on tonite on Pico's page. We BC birds have been having a LOT of parties lately, you should try to come to one. In fact, I'm planning on having one the last weekend in March. Details on my page under 'how we met' and 'my motto'. It should be a lot of fun. Yes, I especially like St. Patrick's day as well, gotta love those green holidays! In fact, I made me a St. Patrick's Day costume as well, it's in my lower gallery. My human has developed OCD with her Photo program....heehee....Hope you had a great day! Cya..

  Hi from Maxie the WonderBird!
Hey Oscar! Good to see you again, little buddy, missed you! How was your summer? Ours was very wet, floods all over. Are you and your family getting all prepared for the holiday? I can't see what all the excitement is about, I saw that skinned bird before they put it in the refrigerator and he didn't look like much to me. Gidget said she liked my pics so I'm gonna fly over there now and say hi...Cya...

  Hi from Max (ie) the WonderBird!
Hey Oscar! Yep, I guess DNA tests mean more than my saying "What a Pretty Boy" or "Good Boy". It's gonna take me a while to relearn those phrases! But I refuse to change "Hi, I'm Max-the WonderBird!". Some things are sacred! Hot and humid here this week, having to run the a/c. Hey, you could lay an egg and really mess with your mom's mind...I figure I'm too old, so it's up to you! Cya...

  Hi Fellow Conure;)
So great to meet another Green Cheek. My mom is a newbie not only to birds but our kind:) She is trying lots of treats do you have any suggestions? I have been very "Beakie" the last few days and she is trying to show me that is not nice, but I don't always listen;) Any advice on that?? I have been at my home about 10 days and boy am I feeling like I have lived here my whole life....Hee hee...Look out mom!!
Ok off to zzzzzzzz's

another warm day here today. The AC is not working and we are still waiting for the repair guy to get here. mY Mom is like your's taking all these pics but mom says that mom's can never have to many pics. I bet your mom was really surprised to see you hoping down the stairs to see her. I do talk in my little vioce I say good morning Kiwi, Good night Kiwi, hello and step up that some other things but mom is not understanding what I'm saying. Yep if you are saying something naughty it's best to keep that to your self. Waddles and Pita doe say a few naughty words that our skin brohters and their friends have taught them and mom when she drops something she has said oh sh**t and now when Waddles drops a toy or pellet she says Oh Sh**t so mom is trying to redidrect her to saying oh no but that is not really working hehehe. Well have a Nice Day.Peeps Kiwi the GCC PS V4U

  Hi Oscur
Hi ther how the heck have you been!!!!! I see you still have that life saver pic mom thinks that is so cute of you. I got watermelon for a snack this afternoon and boy was it good. Hey did you hear that mom had a Dna test done on me and i'm a BOY !!!!!!!!!!. Mom has her eye on either a grey Indian ring neck or a fallow green cheek. I got my wings crossed for the fallow green cheek hehehe. She is still thinking about it. Dad told her if she wants it just go buy it but if he was her he would not wait to long or they might be gone. Mom is trying to decide if she wants a Indian ring neck or the conure or if she want another bird at all who knows about her "WOMEN" always changing there mind shhhh don't tell I said that lol. Well it is warm here today and we was outside watching mom and dad plant flowers for a while and then mom said time for a break and we came in to blog for a while. I was flying around and see your page and I think we have chirped at each other before. Time for me to fly off now Peep at you later Kiwi (Green cheek conure) Kicking the vote off your page on my way out!!!!!!!!!!

  Hi Oscar: Thanks for coming and visiting me. Mom's been so busy lately what with getting ready for vacation without us in two weeks time. So she hasn't let me have any time on the puter. I think you are such a pretty birdie yourself and you look just like me! You live where my dad comes from. Do you know where Utica Michigan is? My dad comes from there. Oh, I do so love p'nut butter alot. When mom makes up dad's lunches she always brings me the knife to lick clean but I have to share it with all my brothers and sisters fids. I gotta go now but come and visit me again. I'm flying by and dropping off a vote for you! Love Dixie

  Hi, Oscar!
I'm so glad you came to visit me! I have been bummed out because that meanie, Layla, bit my toenail off! I was climbing on her cage again, and Mom plucked me off and scolded me, but I just can't help myself. I LOVE to bug her while she is in her cage! Mom sighed and said thank heavens we move tomorrow and I will have a new cage and my own room to explore, away from the big guys.

It's getting to be spring up here and Mom likes the 50 degree weather. Hey, for us Alaskans that IS warm! Mom went to visit family in North Carolina and when the temp hit 90 one day she almost died! She said she can always add sweaters to stay warm but where do you go from almost naked to get cool? Her daughter found her one day with the freezer door open and asked what in the world she was doing. Mom smiled and said "Just chillin'!" Come and visit me! Here's a vote for you!

  Hi Oscar
Hello Everybirdy .. Whiskey here writing for the Moonshiners. Summer gets very busy for mom and dad because of work, so unfortunately group messages are about all we have time for. I'm adapting well to my new environment. It's been almost a month in my new forever home and I just love it. We're all getting a little frustrated because we don't get much free time anymore, but mom assures me that we'll get a day out soon to play and stretch our wings for more than hour. Mom tells me that we get to meet one of our skin brothers next month when he comes home on leave from the Army. She warned us not to scare him too bad (he's never been around birds) ... now that could be fun. hehehe. Well thats about all the news we have for now. Hugs and pecks to all our birdy friends. We'll be in touch soon.

Come visit me, Redneck & Hillbilly & Whiskey & Bourbon.

  My dear birdie friends!

My mommy has become concerned about infectious disease that the News was broadcasting here in South Florida!!! If any birdie is going to the vet try and find out if this can infect us and also pass it along to our owners and family...

According to the News MRSA was found in some dogs, cats, and horses. The staph infection was also found in some family members. One of the dogs was gravely ill and barely made it.

If anyone can find out please send mommy and the rest of us Birdie friends a note.

Always looking out for my pals! Jimmy Hendrix and mommy

Pass this on to your friends

Come visit me, Jimmy Hendrix.

Thanks for the nice welcome. I love my name too. My friends at the pet store picked it out and my pet dad loved it. I can't wait to get in trouble with you. Wait, did I say that out loud? He he. I love to play and get into things. I'm just learning about new foods and snacks. Yesterday dad gave me some of his mango. I do hope he eats more mangos. It was so tasty.
