I had been looking for a grey for about 6 years when I came across an add for Taco on the internet. I had wanted to buy a baby but there was something about that little gray face. I ended up emailing the woman who had him for about three weeks before driving two and a half hours to pick him up.
Taco had just turned two and was just about the most ornery and disagreeable bird you would ever want to meet.
After 5 years he has come a long way and seems to be improving everyday.

Hi! My name is Taco

I am a Timneh African Grey from Houston, TX.

Taco is his nickname his given name is Tyco.

15 years old   M

Timneh African Grey

Taco goes nuts for sunflower seeds, small pieces of peanuts and yogurt treats.

Taco loves to chill on the door of his cage, on the window perch next to my bed and for some odd reason on the laundry hamper.

Taco is a talker and will get very angry if you don't listen to what he has to say.

My mom is just as stubborn as I am. It doesn't matter how many times I bite her and call her names she wont give up.

Taco loves to make fun of people. He even makes up his own insults.
Taco uses tools to scratch his head when my fingers are not available.

I wont unless I have too..

  Hi Taco!
Welcome to bird channel. You will meet many new friends here and your flock can also get great information from the web site. I think that it is wonderful that your owner adopted you from someone that wanted to give you up. I am glad that you got a good home. Too many people don't take care of birds correctly, and when they get a bird they don't realize how much time they need and they don't feed them good or care for them properly, so they get rid of them. I am glad to hear that you are getting friendlier and friendlier with each passing day. My owner spends lots of time with me and my flock mates each day. We even know her name and call for her. It is nice to meet another African Gray birdie. I am a Congo Gray, so I am a bit larger then you are. You are a very pretty bird! Best of luck to you and your flock!! Come and visit if you get a chance!

Come visit me, SUSAN, sooo Sweet!, ROCKET....rocking the house!!, Zazu R.I.P. - Waiting at Rainbow Bridge <3, OOdles, The "finchey" bunch., PEDRO...the destroyer!! Thank U 4 BOD! & ~~BUDDY ~~Thank you for BOTD! :-).

  Hi from Suzie
Welcome to BC Taco. You're a very cute grey. I'm a grey also, and my brother, Kirby, is a Barraband's (aka Superb parrot). He's got a swelled head right now as his pic was in the July Bird Talk mag! Have a great day. Here's my vote for you :)
