We adopted Willow 4 weeks ago. Her owner was elderly and overwhelmed by having to care for her. Turns out we are her fourth (and final) home in 6 months so she is still on the shy side. She is our very first bird so we are both learning together..

Hi! My name is Willow

I am a Lutino Mutation Cockatiel from Chula Vista, CA.

my comfy perch



My owner is very patient with me. Even though I will step up onto her hand I am still shy. I enjoy being out with my owner but I still find it hard to trust. My owner has given me a beautiful new cage with lots of toys and is now trying to teach me to eat veggies.

  Hi Willow
Smokey's Mom here. Smokey's in bed and he'll chat with you tomorrow. I just wanted you to know that you look so much like my very first bird. He was a boy name Nigel, Nigel stole my heart from the moment I layed eyes on him. He bonded with me instantly, he was only 6 months old. Nigel would squawk when I entered the room and when I left the room. When he was allowed on the outside of his cage which was a lot, he would jump down and come looking for me no matter where I was in the house, he always managed to find me. He was the love of my life. I had Nigel two yrs until one day due to his obsessivness with me and his love for me, jumped down and was involved in a terrible accident that took his life. I rushed him to the vet, who told me his spine was cracked, to take him home and make him comfortable. I put him on a heating pad with me and he slept in the bed with me that night. Next morning he was still alive but not eating. He couldn't move his legs. I went back to the vet and got bird baby food to feed him, but he still wouldn't eat. I sat in a chair and held him all day. At one point I put him in a small cage on the floor on a soft pillow. He would pull himself by his beak out the door to get to me. So I just sat and held him until about 3 oclock that afternoon, he died laying on my chest near my heart. I cannot tell you the pain I suffered over this beautiful little creature leaving me.
of coarse I blamed myself, that alone made the pain almost unbearable. That was over 2 yrs ago and I still feel that pain as deep as I did the day he died. I'm telling you this because for one it's thereputic for me and two in hopes you realize what you have there in that beautiful baby who looks just like my Nigel. Please take care of her. I hope she and Smokey will be great friends. Mom Now I need a kleenex

  Hi Willow
Thanks for the nice compliments.Today was a pretty day with temperature around 80 and low humidity. Mom put Chi chi in a carrier and took her outside this afternoon. She enjoyed cheeching with the wild birds, especially the finches. One even came close to get a look at her but was too scared of mom to come any closer. Gus didn’t want to go out so he stayed in today. Mom thinks he is scared of the noise when dad was trimming the bushes earlier .Come visit us anytime my friend…we enjoy your visits and glad you are our friend. Here is a vote as we say cheech to you later.

Come visit me, Gus --Chi chi ♥ RIP & Chi chi RIP my sweet girl..
