Hi! My name is Timba

I am a Timneh African Grey from Cape Coral, FL.

Timbalina (Timba's nickname after she found out that she was a Girl...not a Boy)... (~_~)

19 years old   F

Timneh African Grey

Pasta, Beans, Any Cooked food..."Waterme- lon"... (my favorite), grapes, oranges. bannanas

The kitchen. ..watching us fix meals. Laundry Room, Trash Can, Top of the Shower Doors, In the Sink, on top of my Toys, Screened in Porch...and with Treasure (Even-tho he doesn't want me in the Guy's Bath Room)

Doesn't like baths or loud noises...or left alone. She wants her flock/family around at all times.

They let me explore and have fun. Night time is family time...I get to cuddle on my Mom's chest and take a snooze...My "Hatch Day" was November 25, 1996

Timba stays out of her large cage that has lots of toys most of the day??... Finds/makes herself toys (like paper rolls)... Timba Invented and Loves to do what we call ...The "Birdy'Walk". ..where she puts her beak on the smooth floor & slides around for several minutes...Very Funny! When we laugh...she will continue to do it. Timba loves to say...Hello my husband. She has a neat vocabulary of odds & ends words...and when she starts...she can go on forever...if you laugh...that is her cue to continue. She adds a lot of fun to the day..

A Happy Parrot is a Healthy Parrot! & God Bless Our Troops and Brings Them Home Soon!.

  An Ode to my Fellow Florida Flock by Caymus
Down South in Naples resides Bogie the Grey,
And every summer he goes up North to play.
When the temps start dropping he will come back my way,
And sit on the lanai with his parronts drinking latte!

Sprout and his flock reside on the Coast,
And he has the best parronts, he eagerly boasts.
He may be shy, but not his buddy Noodles
And the rest of the flock, each one cute as a doodle!

Pepper and Parker are new pals of mine
And I quite like their mom, whose writing’s divine!
They live down south in Hollywood (no, not California)
And they certainly are characters, I must warn ya!

Louie from Coral Springs was one of my first buddies.
Now they’ve added another, Miss Libby Lu who is lovely.
Their mom brings smiles to all birdie faces
When she sends homemade gifts and cards to their resident places.

Over in Clearwater is Rocky the ‘Too,
With Bobo and Chewy, they make quite a crew!
The Rockster is such a smarty,
And he will be 10 this year, a reason to party!

Misha the Nandy just a short distance away…
I still have not met her but I heard she can play!
As a fellow Conure I’m sure I can say
How much she must make her mom’s day.

The handsomest of them all is Michelangelo
Because he’s a Dusky Conure that’s also my bro!
Separated when we were so young in age
We met again on this wonderful BirdChannel page.

There’s Knuckles who whistles better than me,
And also a Seni by the name of Queakie.
Timba & Treasure, Turtle and his flock,
And Sunny the ‘Tiel…I like them a lot!

Across the state, my hugs I extend,
As I am so blessed to have all of you as my friends!

Caymus here. Hey my fellow Florida friend...where are you? Where have you been? It's been like years since we've chatted! Ok, not quite a year but very close and that's just way too long for you to have disappeared! As my fellow Florida flock is near and dear to my heart I wanted to try and get in touch with you one last time. Fly by my page and let me know you're ok. Miss ya!

  Hey Timba!
Caymus here. Well it’s that time of year again when I really show my true colors and invite everybirdy our there to “go green” with me! Even my fister Peachy has gotten into the spirit…I mean, have YOU ever seen a green Canary? Rumor has it that I painted Sam the Grey green last year, so you better be careful or this year I may come after YOU! hehehe And of course, stay tuned for my “green ideas of the day” as well as some really neat quotes, and of course a silly joke or two. Earth Day is very important to our flock not just on April 22nd, but every single day of the year because as an old Cree Indian Proverb says, “only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught, will we realize we cannot eat money.”

  Hi Timba and Treasure!
Happy New Year! I know that Peachy and I have not been around much lately but that doesn’t mean we haven’t frequently thought about all our dear friends here on the BC. We just wanted to fly by today to say that we have not forgotten about you, miss you dearly, and promise to keep in touch in 2009. You’re friendship has meant a lot to us (and mommy, too) and we all wish you joy, peace and prosperity in the new year. Ok, have to leave you with a “joke of the day….” Question: Why can’t a chicken coop have more than 2 doors?………………………………………….Answer: Because if it had 4 doors it would be a chicken sedan! hehehehe! See ya next year!

I'm campaigning for Clyde this week so if you could help by votting for him all this week. He's the handsome cockatoo in my aviary. Thank you! After him, it's Joes turn and then Hootie and Alex, now I was just asked if we could help Percy after that..So thats the plans for now. My mission is to get everyone BOTW so if we all stick together, we can get it done.. Well I hope you have a great week and I hope you stop back whenever you can. I love hearing from you...

How have you been? I haven't heard from you in a long time. I hope you all are doing good. Guess what? I went to Sprouts house on saturday and I had a great time! They were all alittle afraid of me because I'm sooo much bigger then them but his mommy spoiled me! I loved that part! My mom said that I behaved like a perfect gentlemen and I can go back to Sprouts house anytime! So I have one favor to ask you, I would like to campaign for Sprout and try to get him BOTW because none of his fids have ever been BOTW and I had such a good time at his house. But theres one thing, please don't mention anything to him! I want this to be a total surprise! OK? Just stop by and talk to him and don't mention BOTW or anything. Thanks alot!! You can find him in my aviary, he's the quaker parrot.. Well I better get going. Take care and have a great week! Love ya, Rocky? R(*><*)F xoxoxoxoxoxoxox V4U

  Hey there
We are still at skin sisters with Mommy. With the weather heating up the gkids are getting more ornery and Sassy is doing her job keeping an eye on them so every few minutes she is hollering. I keep telling her to quiet down but then Mommy tells us both to hush up. Skin sister was 'due' last week Friday but the midwife says she is coming along just fine. Mommy says we are here until the baby comes. We have to fly so here's your vote and birdy hug. Baby

  Please Vote Kacey for BOTW
Hi Timba and Treasure, how are you both. Been a while since last blogged. Hard to keep up with all my friends. My baby fister is running for BOTW and we are trying to help her in her quest. Her boyfriend Mikey has been doing a great job in campaigning for her. We hope she makes it Monday otherwise we will have to wait till we get back from birdy camp. The family is going on vacation and we go to the birdsitter's. Have you heard about the greys getting a baseball team together? You should check out Gizmo's page to see if you both can join up. Gizmo is wearing a grey baseball cap in his pic. Try out its fun. I play on the senegal team and so far we are the undefeated champs on BC. Well I will TTYL. Please stop by for a chat and also help baby fister Kacey by voting her for BOTW. SweetPepper and flock

  Hello from Caymus
Hello Timba! I know…long time, no squawk. It’s been an interesting few weeks around here. My skin-sis just celebrated her 12th birthday and (I don’t know what my parrots were thinking) she had a sleepover with FIVE other girls. And mommy and daddy thought I was loud? Ha! A good time was had by all and only one girl went home with a tummy ache (pizza at 11 p.m. followed by chips, soda and a pickle…ugh!) and apparently dad has to repair my sis’ bed. Hey, I understand…sometimes I chew off the loops that hold my happy hut to the bar clips and mommy has to sew them back on. (grin) Dad’s two sisters also came to visit and I got to sleep in mom and dad’s room just incase I felt like imitating an alarm clock in the early morning. But even daddy said I was on my best behavior and when everyone left on Monday, mom fixed me a special plate with brown rice, chicken, green beans and grapes! Sunday mom is going to the bird show and I can’t wait to see what she brings back (feathers crossed for a Pak-o-bird). So what’s new with you? Hope all is well and I’m leaving ya a HUMONGUS hug and a vote!

  KIDDO FOR BOTW; # 7592
Hi Timba and Treasure. How are you both doing. Been a very long time since we last blogged each other. with so many birdie friends it is just to hard to keep up. Mom is starting to keep a list of all our BBFF in a book. As you may know I am the current BOTW but what I would love to do next is be able to pass on my crown to my sweetheart KIDOO for BOTW next week. It would be so cool as a couple to be back to back BOTW winners. So Please VOTE KIDDO BOTW and spread the word to your friends. I will leave Treasure a vote on his page now.

  Sad news from Bowdon Jct.
The Little Love bird Meisa, Mama sold last week, Died yesterday and Mama feels like it is her fault because she sold her. The Lady she sold her to, really got attached and feels like she let everyone down. But the fault lies with the stupid man who sprayed fabreeze around the cage. Mama is broken up over this and we feel her pain because we all loved Meisa. We hope Meisa found her way to the Rainbow Bridge and is happy with all the other birdies that went before. Well here is a vote. We hope you day is Great.

  Hey, How are you. we are good here. It has been very hot and dry, alot of thunderstorm threats but no rain for us. My garden is drying up even though momma pours the water on it but says we will plant again before winter. the tomatoes got cut down but are sprouting back up again. I have gotten some new tail feathers finally and am almost lookin good again. My girl Kiwi sent momma some toys and some birdie bread mix for my hatchday and mom finally baked it for me YUUUUUMMMMMMY!!! She won't let me have too much though. Dobby is talking away now and growing alot, beak is almost totally orange now. Nina felled in love with momma's male cousin from Austin at the family get together(she was raised by a male) and was so sweet to him but squawked at momma every time she came near. hehehehehe. Well have a great week, stay cool, hugs and a vote. Otis and gang.

  Good Day From Bowdon Jct.
We haven't been able to blog everyone lately but we have been thinking about you. Mama has been busy. The petstore owner has been in Canada to attend his nephews wedding and Mama has been feeding his basement. He has some really nice ones, they are breeders. He has a pair of ecletus and Mama is in love. He also has a yelow napped amazon male he is going to sell. That bird sure does talk alot. Mama has been baby sitting 2 congo eggs the parents stopped sitting on. One was laid on June 15 and Mama has been stressing. We hope they hatch. They are due anytime and Mama is afraid to get too far away from them. Daddy bought Mama a new Laptop and Mama finally got wireless enternet (verizon) it is Great. Now Mama can let us blog from home instead of having to go to the library. A nice lady came by the house and wanted Meisa the love bird and Mama sold her. We miss her alot but Daddy didn't want her to be there and Mama thought it would be better for her if she went with the lady. The lady really loves her and will treat her nice. The lady has a page on and mama went and checked it out. We love BC more. We feel at home here. Well here is a vote for you and we hope you have a great day.

  Good Day from the Oshkosh flock
Skippy here. Baby & Sassy are still sleeping so I thought I'd grab a few minutes of computer time. The 'girls' as Mommy calls them have been telling me all about their trip. I'm glad I stayed home in my nice big safe cage! To many people for me. I'd better fly so I can visit all my friends before they get up and start hogging the computer. Leaving you with a vote and a tiel hug.

  Hello from the Oshkosh Flock
We are back from our camping trip and so tried. Don't know what humans see in it. The crazy travel cages that they have and no comfy perches. Mommy used it as a time to teach people about us and birds in general. So many people came over to visit. Why does everyone ask if 'Polly wants a cracker?' No I want grapes! Mommy let us get down with some popcorn. She would have taken a picture but it was too dark. We got to stay up until 10. I did not like my harness. Mommy made me wear it all weekend. :( I bit Mommy's finger when she was putting it on. I tried to love Mommy specially hard after that. Wow, she did not even get mad at me. She apologized to me? I'm going back to my perch to catch a nap. Check out Sassy and my new pics from camping. Beaked the vote thingy for you. Big birdy hugs. Baby & Sassy (letting Baby do the dictating on my perch listening and adding details.)
