Hi! My name is Bailey

I am a Congo African Grey from Bloomington, IL.

Bay, Goober

16 years old   F

Congo African Grey

almonds,peanuts- ,pizza

Anyplace my mom is. I like to sit with her when she's on the computer. And I like for her to hold me at the patio door so I can watch the birds outside fly by.

I hate cardboard boxes!

She spoils me! She lets me help get everybodys yum yums in the morning. And she lets me look outside. I like to do that every day.

I like to watch Cubs games. We cheer (woo hoo and Go Cubs Go!) when they score runs and in the 7th inning stretch I sing "root, root, root for the Cubs". Every morning when I wake up I say "Cubs win!"..

You want to come with me?.

  ‘Twas the Night Before Easter – By Caymus & Peachy
‘Twas the night before Easter, on a warm Florida night**And Caymus was snuggled in his hut out of sight.**Peachy was snoring, the cats on the couch,**Mom and dad in the bedroom; all was quiet in the house.**And while the Conure was dreaming about hard-boiled eggs**(Which he was soon to consume and get all over his head),**In the sky flew a birdy not many have seen**He was yellow and blue and orange and green.**He had all of the colors that we’ve come to know**When we look up in the sky and see a rainbow.**Purples and pinks, some teal and blue**And gold was his tail, leaving streaks where he flew.**Now we have heard stories about bunnies and such**Who leave hidden treasures from his basket’s clutch.**There are chocolate eggs from Cadbury and jelly beans galore;**There are sugary treats, Peeps, bubble gum, and more.**But high in the sky, flying over the trees,**Above all the rooftops and smooth like the breeze,**Came a birdy so beautiful no one could deny,**Delivering delights to all his friends who can fly.**He had a gray beak, and a little round belly,**And his favorite treat was raspberry jelly!**As he landed upon one particular home**He looked down in the windows to see if any lights were on.**Now there was no movement or sound from inside this space,**So down the air vent he went (because in Florida you don’t need a fireplace).**Now Caymus the Conure was on high alert this night**And said, “Squawk, who’s there? You gave me a fright!”**“Don’t fret now, my friend…I mean you no harm.**But I’ve just flown in for the birdy nut farm.**I’ve got peanuts, pistachios and cashews, all unsalted.**Walnuts and sunflower seeds, too,” then he took a deep breath and halted.**Caymus said, “So who are you then, and why are you here?”**And the stranger responded, “haven’t I made that quite clear?**I have come to bid you happy Easter wishes**To you and your flock, even the mice and the fishes.**Thank you so much for letting me stop by,**But I’ve got to move on and to the next house I must fly.”**And like that he was gone before Caymus could blink**And that Dusky was left saying, “I just saw the Easter Birdy, I think!”**So the story now goes at this special time in the Spring,**If you turn your head late at night and think you see a wing,**If you find extra treats inside of your cage,**You’ll know the Easter Birdy is real, and could even visit your BirdChannel page!**

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

  Hello from Caymus
Hi Bailey! Just flying by to meet new birdy friends. My goal is to say hello to everybirdy here. I know it's going to take a long time, but this little Conure is up for the challenge. I hope to meet lots of new friends along the way. Well here is a vote and a big birdy hug. Fly by and say hello some time!

  Hi from Hera
Hi, Baily. My parents were thinking about an African Grey, but I needed to be adopted before they found one. I can really scream, usually it's for about 5 minutes in the late afternoon - just blowing off steam. Since we live in the country, no one minds. If it goes on longer than that - I have to go into "time out" for 5 minutes (I go back into my cage and Mom puts my cover on so I can't see anybody.) Other than that - I've got it pretty good. My cage if in front of a set of french doors, so I get to see all the wildlife during the day. Take care - Hera

Come visit me, Hera.

  Hi Bailey from Shannon!
Is there any other team to cheer for (though it would be kind of cool if they were called the Chicago Greys ... maybe we should start a ground-swell). I'm not talking yet but I am doing a lot of whistling, clucking, clicking, etc. Oh, and I growl when the mommy's husband gets too close grrrrr. I have to say that you are gorgeous! Here's your vote for today.

Come visit me, Shannon.

I know I will look like Dusty but I had to be beaky and come visit your entire grey family. he he he! I love that pun. he he he! I still have my baby reds though so my tail looks like a cross between yours and Dusty. Mom said I also still have red spots under my wings. She teases me and says they are my stinky spot. What is she talking about? I don't stink. I took a shower 3 days in a row. I am slowly making progress with my shower issues. he he he! I am glad you came to visit me. Take extra good care of your mommy today and tell her I said "Happy Mother's Day". ~~~Tootles~~~

  good afternoon
We hope your Mom is having a truly wonderful day. We have all been singing or squawking or cooing today. Does your Mom know how these sites work where you get free birds? I bet I could really surprise Mom if we found her a new bird, she has all of us but large families are nice.

Wow! You sure have one big grey family. he he he! My family is slowly turning green...we just got a senegal and mom is hoping to get a male eclectus. Hmmmmppfff on green! he he he! It is okay if there are more green birdies since I am still the boss. he he he! How do you get along with your timneh siblings? There is a beautiful congo where my brother is living right now. Mom says she is very big and that she lets my mom give her head scritches. I told mom she better stop giving head scritches to anyone but me. he he he! I am glad I came to meet you. Welcome to the club. Birdie beak kisses. ~Tootles~

Gee your Mom is lucky three of you greys, that is so cool. My Mom loves me but someone said the best bird anyone could ever purchase is a grey. Are you the only one who likes pizza? If so more for you while the others eat their peanuts and almonds. Grandma was born in Peoria, in fact her birthday is June 6, she will be 60, Mom thinks Grandma is old, of course Mom is 14 so she probably thinks everyone over 18 in ancient. I heard zoos get overpopulated and give out their excess, have you ever checked in on this. My Uncle Robert used to go to the Denver zoo and when he was little he called Mergansers nerf ducks. I hope you guys give your Mom a lot of kisses today and remember Mothers Day is next sunday. In Sweden it is May 27th, Uncle Robert fell in love with a Swedish lady, they are comming to visit and then moving here next year hopefully, well to Colorado.

  Hi Bailey and Owner,
I live in Creve Coeur IL. about 45 from bloomington. I own a congo african grey parrot named Kenya. She turned 2 in august. I have never owned a parrot before. I have had her since april this year. She is sooo much fun and I have learned so much. I have read several books and websites about african greys. Just thought I would say hi since it was nice to see that you were from Illinois also!

michelle, creve coeur, IL.
