M: I got Cosmo when as a baby when the original family found their son was illergic to him and decided not to get him. I had fallen for a grey that someone else ended up adopting when Cosmo became available. He was a bird of extreme emotions from day one. He is all or nothing. No grey areas. And is all rowdy boy. Although we got him for me, he has taken to thinking I am to be put in my place as third in the household.
C: I was a baby and let it all happen. I really have the best of everything with this arrangement. I couldn't have chosen a better home if I had been able to choose.

Hi! My name is Cosmo

I am an African Grey from Royal Oak, MI.

African Grey

I will give the female human a kiss IF she gives me a pine nut. I will do many silly things for her for a pine nut.
I love music, too. Despite my tough exterior, I love mellow, crooning music with a great melody. I particularly love Ella Fitzgerald -- her version of "Dancing Cheek to Beak" is to die for. I will sway and click for it every time! I learned how to really dance and I get a lot of attention for it.

I love to be on top of the curtain rod, strutting my stuff. If you don't notice me there, I will bang my beak and stink eye you until you do.

I hate anyone that comes into the room thinking they are better than me. I AM THE BIGGEST BADDEST BIRD EVER and I aim to make sure you know it. Bow to me, I am the bird that all others should be measured by. I should be feared.
And don't show me any brown cardboard boxes. I hate those things -- they are the only things that gives me the heebie-jeebies!

The female human... I have her right where I want her. She will do anything for me and I dole out the rewards sparingly, in just enough amounts that I keep her trying to do whatever I may want. The male human is my best buddy. He and I can play and wrestle and be "guys" together. He can scritch me just right. I love shower time where we get all wet and scream and whoop in the spray. But I don't let him sing to me. I'll nip him if he sings -- that's the female human's job.

I'll give you the supreme stink eye. Then turn around and give a kiss noise. It keeps you on your toes and makes you want to keep trying to get on my good side.
I am the leader of all the birds in the house. What I say goes. I tell them all what to say and when to say it.

  Tweety needs your votes for her poem. Her foot had to be amputated Feb. 26th due to the main blood supply being cut in her leg. We had to separate her from her cage mate. I wanted to get her a big cage to move (fly around) in and after paying 258.00 for her leg to become amputated we could not afford to buy her the cage of her dreams. We notice that she flies a little to get around her cage and can defiantly use a bigger one. Thank you; please visit her web site at

Come visit me, Tweety, Frosty and Ringo.

MY BABY BROTHER, AN AFRICAN GREY, / NEEDS A VOTE FROM HIS FRIENDS EVERYDAY/ TO HELP HIM WIN A WONDERFUL CAGE,/ THAT WOULD LAST HIM FOR YEARS UNTIL RIPE OLD AGE. Poirot my brother has entered a limerick in the poetry contest, located on the home page. He is the first bird on the second page, ( African Grey lying on a cocktail glass.) You can read the limerick on his page. If you like his limerick will you vote for it? I am voting for you. Many thanks, Pringle

  I agree completely with everything you say. Those humans think they own us, but we know better. When someone goes by my window and ignores me I will bang with my beak and call them until I get an answer. By the way, I thought I was King of the Poirot

Come visit me, Pepper, Poirot, Pringle & Artistic Avian Avatars.
