White-Bellied Caique from Wakefield, MA

I was on a waiting list to purchase a White-Bellied Caique, after falling in love with one named Rio. I was called in May of 2001 and told that I could come up and pay for my new bird. They had two of them, and I was 2nd in line, so I would get whichever bird was not chosen. After I had arrived, I was told that the other women decided against purchasing a caique because of the cost. So, I had my pick of birds. It was a heart-wrenching decision, but after about 5 or 10 minutes, I picked the OTHER caique, Phoenix. For several weeks, I went up and visited and bonded with Phoenix (he was still being hand-fed, too), but I got the impression that he missed his old cage-mate, and brother, the caique I left behind. About three weeks in, everyone else on that waiting list had been called and said they were not interested in a caique at that time. I mentioned this at supper one night with my folks. They nonchalantly said, "So why don't you just buy the other one?" (I suppose it was a rhetorical question)...and the rest is history. Phoenix's brother Shanghai came home with him, and they have been happy, loud caiques ever since!!!. Awards

  Hi Phoenix
Glad to hear that you have your brother with you. Me; I have 3 dogs, and 2 cats that live in the house with me. And the dogs are always making sure I am ok. I am even starting to bark when the door bell rings. I think you are cute. Nice talking with you.

Come visit me, Buddie & Esmerelda.
