She is my stepdads bird. He had an African Grey, named Saki, when he lived in Louisiana. When he was moving to PA, the vet said that Saki wouldn't make the trip so my stepdad had to give her up. He later found out that she would have made it and he was devastated. It has been many years and he really wanted another African Grey. That is how Hope cam along. She is the new love of his life and she is maturing gracefully. Please vote for Hope.. Awards

Hi! My name is Hope

I am an African Grey from Levittown, PA.

Hopey, Hoper

7 years old   F

African Grey

Whatever you are eating

On whoever is holding her

Being in her cage

He spoils me rotten.

Squawking when you whistle to her..

Keep me away from the cage or I will dig into your fingers..

  Hope .... Here's a Vote!
Dear Hope,
I am giving you a vote because I feel so sad about the story you told about a vet telling someone a bird could not travel from Louisiana to Pennsylvania. Get this vets everywhere -- I'm healthy living proof that birds can travel. My daddy is a pipeliner and we work away from home more than we are at home. My farthest trip was from Grand Rapids, North Dakota to Kansas, OK in the middle of winter!

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…

  Hiya, Hope! (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, Hope! (Ö>
Very aptly named, Pretty Girl! Thanks for stopping by my page to offer congratulations. Won't you stop back again soon, and try to help my friend Buddy (another African Grey) and I get out of this situation we seem to have gotten ourselves into? ~~~~ Whoooaaa…BUDDY ! ! ! Maybe we shoulda left a note for our moms tellin’ ‘em what our plans are…just in case! This isn’t exactly what I had in mind when I said we should strike out on an adventure of our own. What ARE our plans anyway?! Do they include landin’ this plane soon?! Hey, Hope, do you know anybirdy in the PAA [Parrot Aviation Administration]? Can somebirdy get in touch with Rosalie at the Rainbow Bridge for us? Maybe SHE can put in a good word for us and get us outta this mess! ~~ Any help or suggestions you may have to contribute would be greatly appreciated…and welcomed…AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! AaaaaAA!! Scream at ya again R-E-A-L-L-Y SOON! CRJake (Ö> PS: I’m positive I felt the tail of the plane smack your vote button on one of spins we’re in!

  Hiya Hope!!
I’m a ‘new fid on the block’ too! I can get what it’s like to have to try to break the ice, and start making new friends here on the BirdChannel. I may live in the South, but I’m FROM the North, so I know ‘breaking ice!’ So I said to myself, I said “Self, wouldn’t it be easiest to start off talking to fids who are just as nervous as you are? And what’s more reasonable to talk about than being new?!” My good pal Buddy and I are in a contest too..maybe you would like to play!! ~~ Come on over and visit when you can. I’m sure we can find something we have in common! Here’s a ‘Welcome to the BirdChannel’ vote for you. AaaaaAA!! Scream at ya again soon! CRJake (Õ>
