Bird Fair in Omaha, the breeder was selling her and her sister cheaper than normal since her husband was dying and these two birds were getting wild from not enough attention...but Sunshine is really beautiful and is as tame as ever and loves to be with people..and is trying to talk already at 6 months....

Hi! My name is OSM Aiden Sunshine

I am an Indian Ring-Necked Parakeet from Omaha, NE.

Sunshine, Stinker, OSM (for awesome)

8 years old   F

Indian Ring-Necked Parakeet

apples, grapes, peppers, carrots, mini peanut butter crackers

Playground, shoulder, near me anywhere

Doesn't like people with dark brown or black clothing

I love it when she scratches my head, and sprays me with water so I can make my bright yellow feathers look gorgeous.

Like to throw clothes pins on the floor so I'll pick them up for her...takes pbutter crackers apart like oreo cookies and eats the pbutter out first....:-).

Jibber jabber all day long and I'll finally get the hang of this TALKING thing...
watcha doin? hmmmmm...think I'll even learn to sing "You are My Sunshine" pretty soon.... :-)

  This is Rocky here and I am on a mission to get my good friend Lady Bird BOTW. She is a very sweet girl that has been through alot in her life and she really deserves to be BOTW. I would like to ask you if you could stop by and give her a vote everyday this week and show her how many good friends that she has out here. She also has a new sister named Dutchess and her mommy rescues abused birds and she is looking for any advise that you might have on helping her with Dutchess. Dutchess is a macaw and she was abused very badly and she is a biter. So if you could help her out with Dutchess she would really appreciate it. Thanks and PLEASE help Lady Bird out this week, she really deserves this award.... Thank you! Now to find Lady Bird, just go to the top of your page and hit the profile button, then type in Lady Bird where it says Search Name. She is the only cockatoo there the rest are macaws. Thanks again and I hope that you have a great day and I am also leaving you a vote to. Love, Rocky? R(*><~)R

  Hi from Lonnie
Good Morning Big Bird, Sunshine, I just love the help I get on BC. Today, I decided to take Zeus advice. I think and just let Ellie build our nest herself. I love her to death and just want to help but she reminds me that for safety sake I cannot put material so close to the hole. She thinks the chicks will fall out. I guess she is right, but a man likes to look out the door when resting on his nest. Our teils, Ms.Skeeter and Mr. Wishbone have two eggs already and she is still laying. Beep and Peep the Zebras have 3 eggs and are expecting on January the 6th also. I guess all good things come to those who wait. I'll be patient with Ellie. Afterall, I can't lay the eggs. hehe she is the expert there. Well, got to fly...Here is a vote for you and your flock too. It is from all of us. Yes, Fortune has the Big Head.....Patrick and I love it for him though. Happy 2008 my friend. Lonnie

  NEW FRIENDS!!
Sunshine, You are a girl but look just like me! Please check me out, you will be so surprised. I am 6 mths old. How is your living situation, I Hope good! I live in Fla. You are a cutie! Nice Pics. We act alot alike. I never had mini peanut butter crackers, I'm getting some tomorrow! You don't bite anymore? You really sound well manored for being less than a 1 yr old. We IRN's usually take some extra love & patience & I think that's what probably gives us our special & quirky personalities. I'm usually pretty good with Mom, except when I forget(ha,ha). I'm lucky Mom is smitten with me. If someone is home, I better be the center of their attention or they hear me. Mom, Dad & I are a perfect match. They had an empty nest & was just what they needed to fill it perfectly!! At least that's what Mom keeps telling me! Do you talk yet, is it clear? Mom talks to me constantly, so I like talking, too, even if I'm the only one that can understand me. I'm starting to say something that sounds like my name "Louuuuu ieeeeee" Louie! At least, Mom thinks so. I'm only 6 mths old, when did you start talking? I also laugh & whistle, some. My Mom says I sound just like my brother's squeekie toy, his name is Buster, a Bichon, he likes to watch me & bark from the patio door that my cage looks out on. I have a sister - Bunny Rabbit, she's a Chihuahua, very cute but not interested. I love to play with Mom on her bed & climb on her back. Then I nestle on her shoulder, play with her hair & we watch TV at night together. She gives me all kinds of toys & lets me try all different kinds of treats,fruits & veggies. I really like my roasted peanuts in the shell, tearing the shells open is more fun than the nuts. Have you tried them? Come & look at my new photos every week. I love looking at the camera, it tastes good, too!

Come visit me, LOUIE Hi! Pals, LIBBY LU - Hi Pals! & LACIE - Hi Pals!!.

  Oh Beautiful Birdie...
You sounded so sad! I want to be able to help you--out of your space on short notice--it must be very unsettling for your entire flock! I wish I lived closer and could help! My mommy used to babysit an Indian Ring-Neck Keet that she just adored. Unfortunately, I was overwhelmed with jealousy whenever she would visit. I just can't control myself...I don't know why. You are such a beautiful bird and I know the love that your species if capable of sharing-- I hope everything is going to be OK!!!! Will you please keep in touch so we can know how you are doing? We are praying for you! Here's a vote--not much help, but you know we care!

Thank you for the congratulations and compliments. We are both honoured, first to have our picture chosen for the calendar and secondly to be voted as BOTW. It will be a great way for other birdies to find out about the calendar. We hope you have a wonderful week. Here is a vote.

  Hi OSM, Miss Majestic here!
Thanks for the compliment. I came from Virginia to Pa so I think I'm something special. Mom just loves white birds so I'm VERY special. My feathers are pristine white and I keep myself very clean. Royalty must keep up appearances you know! I consider myself to be an only child and the rest of these wing-ed things to be my subjects. Mom seems to understand and, after all,I try to be kind. I see you are from Omaha Royalty. Good. We can talk more later. :) Here's a vote for your golden beauty.

  Hi there OSM, this is Jasmine.
So nice to meet you! And what a beauty you are. Mom says I'll get beautiful golden yellow feathers like you too but not so many. I'm gonna be more red. Thanks for stopping by. Mom really likes to read all the comments and look at new birds. She thinks you are gorgeous and here's a vote for you! See ya soon.

  Hello there
We can go stay at the Treasured Parrot when mom goes away, and it doesn't cost much. Our best bird lady here moved to Nebraska, but not sure what city...there is a crazy big furniture store there she talks about. I wonder if she is near you??? Anita was the best Parrot lady ever here, we all miss her. She raised Harley and Scratch from a baby at the Treasured Parrot, and her Parents Opened Parrot's Inn in the 80's. I am so excited about all my new feathers. Mom thought they stood out more today, but didn't get a picture before she sprayed me down...I am soaking wet now...that crazy woman!!!~~Hollie

  Hi Sunshine
I do hope they see the light and let you stay. I wish I was closer, and you could just come and stay here.My cousin Rainbow is staying here for a bit while he is mad at his daddy. Mom thinks a birdie should get to stay with his flock if at all possible, so he is working through his issues with his daddy on neutral territory. He is a nice birdie though, so he can stay as long as he likes~~Hollie

  Hello there Awesome Sunshine birdie!!!
Spirits mom blogged us today. She is a little better, not much. She will be so upset for a while. I know my mom would be. We sent her a Mother's day card, but she didn't get it til today...good thing, as it did make her feel a little better today. I don't think it would have been so good to get it Sunday. I hope all my friends stay around for a long time. We have lost 2 so suddenly this past couple weeks

aude has been eating hers, and she is Fuscia now, lol. Oh, I hope there is no lead in it. There isn't in ours. I haven't eaten any screens yet. That mom of nine put me in the sink and tried to give me a bath that way today. I am still biting her fingers!!! She'd better never try that again.
