Went to a breeder who had maybe 600 birds, birds of every kind, size color. My ten year old picked Houdini out, and he was like only the second cage inside the aviary. After maybe a dozen trips to the aviary and 12 birds later i got tired of my son's obsession with this one lil bird and bought him. i have never regretted it. He was worth thousands. He is a constant amusement. and my whole family adores him.. Awards

Hi! My name is Houdini

I am a Black-Headed Caique from Logansport, LA.

lil clown, goober and dini

14 years old   M

Black-Headed Caique

mac and cheese and mashed potatoes.. anything my humans are eating i want it

The towel rack in the bathroom, the kitchen window and on anyone's shoulder who walks by.. and i love people with long hair, i play in it.

someone reaching for me when i'm on my dad's shoulder. The ecelectus Ely. can't tolerate him for some reason and i get into trouble alot and have to go back in my cage for attacking him

I have a big family and love all of them. my dad loves me specially even tho they have lots of birds in the house. He lets me sleep with him in the big bed

i love the towel rack in the bathroom. I walk on it like a balancing beam and fan my wings and sing.

I may be a small bird but i am king of this house.. just ask anyone.. King Houdini.

  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.

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

  Thanks for the comment! Ophelia got lots of presents, amongst them a steel cup she can scream into and wear as a hat. I think that's the favorite. Houdini and his brothers and sisters are beautiful! Oph is trying to convince me to get a caique for her to hop around with...

Come visit me, Guthrie, Jude, Sage, Beedie & Ophelia.

  From your Birdie Buddy
Hello to my entire birdie buddies here at Bird Channel. My Mom is working many hours right now so she has no time for us to come visit you, so we are stopping by very quickly while I am setting on Moms shoulder to say Hello & to wish you & your families a very Happy New Year. I got many toys for Christmas & Mom even let me unwrap my own Christmas presents that she had wrapped in brown paper bags & she cut them so that no glue is on it, or ink so, I am safe to open these presents from Mom & Dad, & plain white paper that Mom gets for me at the News Paper Business. I had much fun un-wrapping my toys because Mom wrapped them so good it took me a week to fully un-wrap one present, but I loved it because as you know, we love to rip paper apart being the birds we are. *squawk* Mom promises to let us come visit as soon as she is through with her job project she has going. She is under a timeline, so she is working many hours every day, daily & nightly & has no time for us to come visit, but I told Mom this morning that I wanted to come on Bird Channel & wish all my birdie buddies a Happy New Year & to say Hello. She said it was ok & made me happy today by letting me set on her shoulder while she works & we visit all of you. Your Birdie Friends, Valentino & Mooooooooooooom

Come visit me, Mic "The Tongue" Jaeger & Valentino "Big Boy" Jaeger.

  Thanks For visiting Pepper! I told her all about it. Any mail she gets gives me a reason to sit down with her, and read it to her. I could read the Wall Street Journal to wouldn't's really all about the attention! So it's a good reason to sit with her and give her a little "one on one time".
Houdini is Wonderful! I have always wanted a Caique! I have a friend with several and have simply loved the species ever since. Good Luck with the little tyke!

Come visit me, Parker (The "Memo Bird" in Bird Talk) & Pepper.

  Thanks for visiting Zoey and for your nice compliment. Plumheaded parakeets are kind of rare, but can be found. Sometimes you have to wait till spring to find one as they only breed once a year I've been told.
For a while I was trying to find a male, but everytime I thought I found one it had already been sold. The funny thing is a woman on this site has a male and she only lives about 20 miles from me. It's a small world!!! Go check him out. His name is Tookie Caw Caw and you can find him in my blogs on Zoey's page.

Come visit me, Channer and Kade, Tobias, Louie, Leah, Ringo, Zoey, Alex & Emma.

  Thanks for visiting us. Houdini is a great name for a caique. Houdini is a beautiful bird. I sometimes think that I would love to get the black headed caique, since I already have the white bellied, it would be awesome to have one of each of their type. Unfortunately our house is quite full already, with 7 parrots and 6 rosey bourke parakeets. Someday it will happen, when we get a bigger house. Have a great xmas and tell everyone we said hello.

Come visit me, Corky, LuLu, ANGEL, Arie & ZIGGY.

  We didn't get to chose our baby Jenday, really. He was at the bird store, we visited often, and eventually, he just seemed to make his way to my house!

Come visit me, BEEP!!, Gibson & Fender.
