Hi! My name is Zoey

I am a Plum-Headed Parakeet from Ypsilanti, MI.

Plum-Headed Parakeet

sesame sticks and nutriberries

On my hanging java gym

I will squeal in anger if anyone sticks thier hands in my cage when I'm in there

She's been patient with me and she even lets me hang out on her head!

hanging on to the corner of my cage with my feet and flipping up and down. Also running back and forth on my perch at an incredible rate of speed. I didn't know such speed was possible for a bird on a perch.

ALL Nutriberries are mine!! Even yours!!!.

  story about santa bird
Ever wonder how mysterious red feathers appear in your home on
Christmas, or how empty nut shells appear on your floor.
Or better yet, how did they get out of their cage on Christmas?
Let me tell you:

This is the story of a beautiful Scarlet Macaw that lived
In the rain forest of Peru a long time ago. Now this beautiful bird was
Reds. He was different from the other macaws, He always looked after
The other birds, if they were weak or small or sick.
He took care of everyone else but himself.
Every year on Christmas Eve, Santa visited the rain forest
And asked each bird what they needed or wanted; Reds made sure the
Others got
First pick. Santa would then ask Reds what he wanted, but he always
Asked for food for the others or medicine for the sick ones. Every year
Was the same scene; he never asked for anything for himself. He was
Happy to help the
Others and it made him proud to see them all eating treats and playing
And singing
On Christmas Day.

Many years passed by and Reds was getting older. He was starting to
Have a touch of Arthritis in his wings. It was harder for him to fly
Any distance and his eyesight was not what it used to be, but still
Nothing changed, he was just a little slower and more tired, his
Feathers not quite as bright, but he continued to help the others.

Then one year on Christmas Eve, Santa stopped as usual and once again,
He asked Reds
What he wanted for Christmas. With great difficulty and pain, he
Climbed up on Santa's knee and said, "Can you make me young again?"
"You see, I am in pain now and can't get around as easy to check on

Santa thought about this and turned to Reds, and said, "You know my
This job is getting to be too much for me also, so I was thinking of
On an Assistant to deliver to my feathered friends." "Who better than
"It doesn't pay a lot but the rewards are the best". "The only
Thing is
You must leave the forest".
"Leave the forest? It is the only place I know. Who will take care of
The others if I go with you?"
Santa said "Look around, they have each other to depend on. It is time
Someone did something for you". Reds talked to the others and they
Agreed it was time for him to go, so he climbed on Santa's shoulder and
Off they flew that night.

Now Reds will never grow any older or have any pain and every year on
Christmas Eve, make sure you leave some walnuts out, because, if you
Hear tiny claws on your roof, you know it is Santa Bird, come to visit
Your feathered friends.beaky kisses and a vote Boba

  Hi Zoey
We Lories can be naughty. Not many of us play well with others. I bet Scratch was hapoy that I found someone else to pick on. I learned my lesson because I got a time out while everyone else got to play. Mom might have to ask Chet Womach what to do about my attack bird thingy. I will try to do better~~Summer

  I am so glad you found me! This is an awesome website! I see that Zoey enjoys sitting on your head. That's funny, so does Tookie, he is also very cage territorial. The two are very similar in their personalities.
I would love to exchange more stories with you, keep in touch!
Oh, yeah, she is beautiful, I am going to take more pic's of Tookie and put them up asap!

Come visit me, Tookie Tookie Caw.
