  Hi Cheeks!
Caymus here. Just flying around today meeting new friends on the BC. About a year ago I began on my goal to meet every birdie here on the birdchannel. Well it seems I’ve hardly made it very far but I’m a persistent little fellow! (hehehe) Hope you’ll stop by my page to say hello as well. Leaving you a vote and a big birdie hug!

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

  Hi Cheeks!
Mom is very excited to find you here. We live close to you. I have to tell you mom really wanted to get a greycheek parakeet like you before she got me. She searched and searched, on the internet, contacted different breeders, went to bird fairs and could not find any. A few months later she decided the next best thing was an amazon. She got busy looking for one and she found me (an orange winged amazon). She says she still would LOVE to have a greycheek parakeet as pet. Which breeder did your mom get you from? it was many years ago, hopefully she'll remember... mom would love to know. She said when she was looking for one like you they told her greycheeks were difficult to breed and there were only a small number of them left in the US. Mom and I want to send hugs and birdie kisses to you. You are very cute! Since we live so close ask your mom if it'd be ok for us to meet you :) We would love that very much. Here's a vote for you! Sunny

Come visit me, Careto, Sunny, Ray-Ray, In memory of Travieso & Tweety.

  Hi Cheeks!
Aloha! My name is Stitch. My mommy and I saw your picture and we had to give you a vote and drop you a note. My mommys first birdy was a Grey Cheek named BooBoo. He was the best little to me of course! He said a few words and would hang out with mom...on Saturdays he would climb out of his cage and walk to the bedroom and climb up on moms bed and snuggle next to her check and go to sleep with her. Then he would nibble her hair to wake her up so she could feed him and take the morning shower and play. Great little bird. He lived about 20 years. Unfortunatly he went over the rainbow....a dog got into the house and the cage was not locked. (somebody opened it to take him out to play when they had been told NOT TO) It was very very sad. But he was an awsome bird. Now mommy has me a Hanhs Macaw and we have a blast together. Come and visit us!
Stitch ~:)

Come visit me, Stitch Auli`i Koa Mea A`a SURF'S UP!!!! & Lola Neolani Desdemona~:>!! NEW TOYS!!!!!!.
