At a bird Expo in Freeport, NY.  My cockatiel Angel had passed away a month before. I wasn't planning on buying a new bird that soon after, I just wanted to look at, pick up and hold a few cockatiels for comfort.  One cockatiel pushed out of my hand at sat on my finger with a look that said "if I can just sit here, we're ok, otherwise I'm out of here", then tilting his head toward his breeder with a look that said "ok, we met, lets go buy me & go home"  What could I do? Buy him & a traveling case & tote him from Freeport LI to Staten Island, NY..

Hi! My name is Treasure

I am a Cockatiel from Staten Island, NY.

Macho

12 years old   M

Cockatiel

spray millet, flavored mineral blocks

The top of his cage or playgym, on basket, bowls & boxes.

any headgear, hats, scarves,rollers- , and fans

The big cage she had for me, the great toys she makes for me, the expensive wood playgym she got for me, but most of all the lovely female companion she bought for me (she realized I missed being with other birds & kept her promise of getting me a birdy friend). She got a female cause she thought I was a female and she didn't want to breed me, and well what can I say, now I enjoy the company of 5 other tiels. And, she also gets me the best most expensive food: Noah's Kingdom & Harrisons pellets, plus a spirulina/wheat grass supplement. She loves me and has spoiled me accordingly.

likes to nip noses, lips and ears..

  Congratulations Treasure on BOTD
Happy Sunday to all my BC friends. Zeena here with a look at a species of bird, well reputed as THE best talker and mimicker. Once abundantly available at low prices, today an often difficult to find and much costly addition to ones Flockily. Momma Deb says as a child she recalls seeing a number of these interesting, entertaining birds kept in Pet Stores, and businesses. She has been searching for one for over ten years and only encounter one at a very costly price.
The Mynah, the loved and disliked Clown of the avian world.
The Common Myna (Acridotheres tristis), sometimes spelled Mynah, also sometimes known as "Indian Myna", is a member of the family Sturnidae (starlings and mynas) native to Asia. An omnivorous open woodland bird with a strong territorial instinct, the Myna has adapted extremely well to urban environments.The Common Myna is an important motif in Indian culture and appears both in Sanskrit and Prakrit literature. "Myna" is derived from the Hindi language maina which itself is derived from Sanskrit madana.

The range of the Common Myna is increasing at such a rapid rate that in 2000 the IUCN Species Survival Commission declared it one of the world's most invasive species and one of only three birds in the top 100 species that pose an impact to biodiversity, agriculture and human interests. In particular, the species poses a serious threat to the ecosystems of Australia where it was named "The Most Important Pest/Problem".

Mynahs are a lively, confident, aggressive, and noisy bird. It is friendly and perky, and the large flocks that gather at roosting time are usually raucous and grouchy. As pets they have many redeeming qualities including an inmate ability to mimic sounds, whistles and human speech. Once quite common in the pet trade, they now are difficult to locate. The Greater and Lesser Hill Mynahs are most thought of when imaging a Mynah Bird. Their clownish, outgoing personalities winning many a fan in years past.

Mynah's eat a mixture of specially formulated insect mash and fresh foods. Like the Lories, they have watery, odorous droppings, making them difficult to maintain in a home environment. those who endure the mess speak lovingly of their companions who seem to adore children, and adults alike. Daily cage washing, bathing and out of cage time are mandatory for good health. Momma Deb recalls that in her childhood most Mynah's were caged in small cramped cages,eating a diet of sunflower seeds and fruit. Thus living a miserable, short life. As advances came, it was found that Mynah's must have a balanced, more natural diet, and lots of room to move around in their cages. Bonded pairs breed readily in captivity. Babies that are hand-reared average $1200 to 1500 each when available. Bali Mynah's are rare and costly when available.

I wish to thank all my friends here on C for their daily support, and words of encouragement.

Dad and Mom are both off today! Yeay!!! They slept in and we didn't get uncovered until 10:30 or later!! Can you believe that nonsense! Mom is usually awake at no later than 8:30 when she is off! So to make it up to us Mom just finished baking a pan of birdie bread with fresh broccoli, red sweet peppers and carrots added in!! It smells really good in here! I loved the birdie bread, Green thought it was so so.. Peetie and Paulie liked the way it smells better then the way it tastes apparently! haaha!! Now we are just chill'n out! Have a fun Sunday!!!

What a great couple of days it was partying and having fun! I'm so glad that you had a nice time! Mom worked till 4:45 today! She had to rush home to get the mail, get Sheena fed, get our veggies cut up and she finally just made herself a frozen dinner! :)Mango was screaming at her to get a move on it! Mom wasn't very happy about that! Not much else happening! Mom cousins and Aunt and Uncle are visiting this week. Mom will meet up with them maybe tomorrow night and Thursday night for sure. That's about it for now!
