Abner's previous owner has a son with medical conditions that Abner's squaking seemed to make worse. So as much as she hated to part with him she knew he would be in a safe and loving home with my family and I (both human and feathered). And thats how we ended up together. I love him and he's starting to warm up to me (we've only had him about a week)..

Hi! My name is Abner

I am a Nanday Conure from Brawley, CA.

Abbey Abner (thats what his previous owner called him and we thought it was so cute we call him that too)

21 years old   M

Nanday Conure

Peanuts, sunflower seeds, grapes, and apples

On the top of his cage or on his other cage playtop gym. Sometimes he likes to hang out on the top of the parrolette cage too. I'm sure he will find other cool places as he gets more comfortable and starts to venture away from his cage a little more.

He doesn't like it when you touch his blankey.

My owners seem like funloving people but I'm gonna need a little more time to check them out. They do however give me treats I like and the other birds seem to like them, so we'll see, I'll keep you posted

Well I guess older birds can learn new tricks! We frequently call Abner "silly bird" and now he says "silly silly" back to you. He has also started making snoring noises about bed time as he arranges his blankey to tuck himself in..

Persistance leads to peanuts (and other good stuff too) :).

  Ichi here!
We've been away for awhile! Sorry about that. We've been looking for a house and we finally found one! We don't for sure have it yet, but we are in the process of buying it. The seller accepted our offer, but we are waiting to hear back from the bank on whether we for sure got the loan or not. It's looking good so far tho, cuz our credit score is amazing. It's been really crazy tho. We've been negotiating prices and there's another buyer interested in the house too. But the realtor tells us that she doesnt think the other buyer is going to get financed. Still tho, I'm on the edge of my seat every day waiting for the phone calls finalizing everything. It's such a beautiful house and it happens to be the only house we found that's perfect and that we love. So everybirdie cross their fingers or pray that we get this house. So that we can do things like take in rescue birds that need a home. And have another baby. Mom's been hit with the baby bug really bad. She can't wait to have another one! And we ALL can't wait for this stress to be over.

Hey Abner! Haven't seen your cute beak in a while, thought I'd fly over and say hi. Did you have a good Thanksgiving? It was my first one with my human and I got offered a few weird foods, none of which I liked except piecrust. Hope you and your flock are all doing well....Cya...

  Hi from Maxie the WonderBird!
Hey Abner! Great to see you again, buddy! So your skin sis is walking? That's cool. What did she dress up as for Halloween? We only had our usual dozen or so trick-or-treaters, we don't get many around here. Which means my human will have to eat the leftover candy...again...lol...which is why she always buys the kinds that she likes! We've had a lot of company this past month, I'm glad things are getting back to normal (at least until Thanksgiving, anyway!) Hope you had a great day....Cya...

  Hi from Maxie the WonderBird!
Hey Abner! So your little skin sis is gonna have her first birthday! That's great. I wish I couldn't get locked in my cage...so far it's pretty escape-proof, at least since she tightened up the food bowl doors...I made it out of those once or twice. Trouble with these humans is that they do eventually learn from their mistakes...lol...Hope you had a great day! Cya..

Thanks! I flirt with Nyah lot. She is beautiful! She acts like she doesn't want my attention, but she enjoys me being there. She sings to me when i bob my head and jump all around my perch. But she pecks me when i get too clse. But she'll come around eventually! -Mav

  Hi from Max (ie) the WonderBird!
Hey Abner! Glad you and your flock are doing ok. How's Sunflower doing without Safflower? Will your mom be getting another mate for Sunflower? I bit the grandmom the other day when she was giving me a peanut, I was a bad girl. I tend to draw blood and bruise pretty bad when I get someone. Now she's not giving me any more peanuts either...Hope you have a good weekend...Cya...

  Everyone pray for Duckie Lou
Ichigo here. Duckie had an accident last week, and fell from the top of his cage onto his chest. The impact of the fall was so hard that it wounded him pretty bad. He ended up at the vet, where he was given antibiotics and had to stay over night. The next day, his mom took him to his dad's house where he could have a more peaceful recovery. Well bein the stubborn lil Quaker Duckie is, last night he chewed open his wound and had to get stitches and a cone collar put on his neck. He was really scared and was freaking out really bad. His mom is also really scared and worried that he might not make it. So please everyone, pray for Duckie Lou. I don't want to lose my best friend, and his mom doesn't want to lose another Quaker.

And the new kitties don't really bother me yet. They are still in their box so they don't roam around the house yet. But I'm sure they'll give me a run for my money once they are old enough to run around.

  Hi Abner, So glad everything is going good. I was yelling and yelling at mom this morning. She couldnt figure out why. She gave me green beans this morning for the first time. I ate all of them. Mom finally figured out that I wanted more. I really liked them. Mom is getting ready to vacuum. She said we made a mess all over the floor. I dont see it. Looks good to us. Whats a little seed on the floor. hehehe Hope you have a wonderful day.

Hey Abner! Glad you and your flock and family are doing better. Wow, from 115 to 57? That is climate shock! Enjoy it while it lasts. We have company for the next couple of days but our weather was rainy today and probably will also rain tomorrow. Yep, it was a shock when the DNA results came back. You can call me Max or Maxie, it's fine with me. I keep forgetting cuz I am still calling myself "Good Boy" and "What a pretty boy"....lol...Cya...

  Hi from Max (the WonderBird!)
Hey Abner! I don't know what impedigo is, either, but I hope your skin sister will be ok. That's good that your flockmate seems to be recovering, I sure hope she gets well. I'm sure you are only biting because of everything that happened. I nipped at my person today too cuz she was carrying me past the grandmom. I just don't like the grandmom (or anyone else, for that matter) so I guess I was trying to tell her that I didn't want to get that close...Cya...
