My Mom and human sister came to visit me when I was only 3 weeks old. I just had a few fuzzy feathers then. Mom says it was love at first sight!..

Hi! My name is Riley

I am an African Grey from GARDEN GROVE, CA.

Rye Rye Also Mom keeps calling me "You little bugger!" What does that mean????

8 years old   F

African Grey

I love plain waffles! I really like it when the little human girl decides she has had enough and she gives me a piece or two. Of course she never gives me the pieces with butter or syrup on them. What's up with that?

I LOVE to hang out on my hanging playgym. It's up high so I can see everything that is going on, plus it is fun, because it swings!

I don't like it when Mom gives the other birds in the house attention. Hey I'm the baby I should get ALL the attention!

She wrote a great poem about me and the rest of the flock.
I love birds, I love them so,
Life without them I’ll never know.

Each day starts with a meeting,
Chirps and whistles, it’s their own special greeting.

Fresh fruits and veggies to wash and chop,
Served with warm birdie bread to fill each crop.

Toys of wood, leather and bells,
Makes for fun with loud squawking yells.

Feathers and pellets all over my floor,
Does not deter me from loving them more.

As the sun fades we share kisses and scritches,
Then it’s off to each cage with sweet dream wishes.


I love to tell the other birds in our household to "Shhhh, Quite!" when they start getting to loud. I will even tell myself "Riley - Quite!" if I start getting out of control. I also love to go for car rides. Mom will get out my travel carrier and say "Rye Rye, do you want to go Bye Bye?" and I make sure she knows that yes I do want to go, because I will scrammble out of my cage as fast as I can..

I'm the baby, so I should ALWAYS have MY way!..

  Hello Riley!
Thank you for the congratulations. Congratulations to you too for being chosen for the calendar. We recognized your picture right away when we saw it. I had an idea. Would you agree to us putting your picture at the bottom of our page, so people can see one more from the calendar? We would write in the profile that you won a spot too and birds can come and congratulate you. Tell us what you think? Take care. Poirot

Come visit me, Mahatma and Gandhi.

  Hi Riley,
Simu here, one of your guys flew by a little while ago and i wanted to say thanks for the visit. Mom is'nt able to get on that computer a lot lately, so we are soooo sorry it took a while to get back with you. WOW, you are such a cute little bugger. How young are you? And i see you have a hanging swing and a flightsuit? You are sooo brave. I don't like my hanging swing that much, the first time i went on there i slipped and flew off and landed on my moms arm....what a stunt!!!...but it scared the poop right out of me. Since then i was on there only twice and only because they made me go on there. Hope to see you again soon. A big HELLO and vote from SIMU

Come visit me, Simu & Flock & BELLA - Panama Amazon.

  Hi Riley
I think that is an awsome picture. And that poem you sent me was really good, so I was wondering If you would like to hear mine about dusty. Here it is!

Gray and green I'd make you smile. I promise you that or I will walk a mile. I may be small and dimly colored, but come and meet me and you'll be glad you bothered. I could brighten any room, plain or musty. Even though my name may be Dusty!

I hope that you will vote for my poem

Come visit me, Dusty.

  Hello!
Hi Riley! My mom loves African Greys! You look like a Congo....I can't see your tail too good but mom thinks you are. If you ever need to move, let my mom know and you are welcome to come here! We'd love to have you ;)

Seriously though, it's great to meet you. I love your baby picture. My mom has some baby pics of Morgan (BCC) and she's going to make a webpage for him soon too.

Have a great day!

Come visit me, Pogey & Morgan.

I have to begin by saying I love your photo with the heart! How perfect for the February holiday. If I were an AG I'd be asking you to be my Valentine! Some lucky character out there will surely sieze upon the opportunity. The next best thing I can do is give you my vote! Thanks for visiting my page. R

  hey riley
you look so cute in that picture. I'm also a CAG! I love peeping and in the morning if mom doesn't take me with her to the bathroom to get ready for work I climb down my rope and peep all the way to the bathroom saying "don't for get me!!" I love watching her get ready and chewing on the towel on the towel rack while mom gets pretty. once in a while my brother Kody joins us but he still thinks that he's king and has to be closer to mom. since he can fly and I can't yet he'll go straight to her shoulder to try and pick at the makeup tools mom uses. are you talking yet? I'm trying but my words don't come out very well...

Come visit me, ABBY & Kody.

Such a pretty bird. I laughed as I imagined the coversations you and your Mom have. My Birdie always wants to know, "What are you doing?" Sometimes she helps.* * bonnie, Birdie, Simon, Pax, and Blue Sky

  Hi Riley
Hey Riley, I see you like baby food from the photo on the bottom and so do I. My mommy visited me too when I was 3 weeks old but she didn't take me home until I was 7 weeks, because my she wanted to let me grow some and to know if I was a girl or boy first. I love going to lots of different places and when I'm in the car I love to sing with the music. Katara.

We think you are very cute! Snuggles agrees with you about the attention thing! She believes that she is the only diva in the house that should received all of the attention!

  do you like that flight suit?
Dear Riley,

You are a pretty bird! Do you like wearing the flight suit? I have a little problem with feather picking and wonder if that would keep my poorly behaved beak from plucking my chest bare?

Come visit me, Tuki.

  Hey Riley!
I am a Baby too (actually it's both my name and occupation)! At least that is what I have trained my mom to think. Since I am the only Feathered Kid here, I practically rule the house.... I don't talk, but I communicate pretty well! I like having my way too. We are practically neighboors, so send me a comment back and we can chat! P.S. When I get that look on my face, mom usually knows I'm up to something! What a beautiful bird!

Come visit me, Babykins.
