I read about Meyer's parrots and decided that I would like one. My very favorite bird store in the world had owners that also bred Meyer's parrots. Their breeder pair was not very prolific and they never raised more than one chick in a clutch. Hal was hatched from them in 2000 and when Hal and I met we fell in love. Hal was very difficult to name. He is named for the silent movie star Harold Lloyd..

Hi! My name is Hal - waiting at the Rainbow Bridge

I am a Meyer's Parrot from Glen Burnie, MD.

My full name is Harold Lloyd Parrot. My nicknames are Hal, Halibirdie, Step Up birdie, Wernt Birdie, Baby Bird.

14 years old   M

Meyer's Parrot

Dried papaya chunks and raisins. Also nutriberries, particularly the sunny orchard kind.

Mom's hands, the top of Malachite's cage.

Having to share me with the others in the flock. In particular is jealous of Malachite.

She is very sexy! I love to regurgitate for her and I strut and fan my tail for her too.

Hal makes kissy noises and says "Step up" when he wants attention. He also waves good-bye and says "bye" in a plaintive voice when I go to work..

You catch more humans with sweetness than with biting..

Hal, it never seems like we do enough. You were the first other Meyer's parrot that we met. My mom often checked your page to see if something I did was usual for a Meyer's- your page and your mom helped my mom learn to understand me. Both my mom and I were and still are grateful for knowing you. We should have told you how much you helped before you crossed the 'bridge. We will remember you until our time to see you again. Oliver and mom

As one of the birdie BazBol announcers, I got to know you pretty well as a fine player and a good sport. I know your mom will need all the love and support of your flock members to get thru the next few days, but know that we are all with her as you watch over her and them from the Rainbow Bridge.

  Our Condolences
Hal, we just read that you left us. We are so sorry to hear that you had to go to the bridge so soon. It's always harder for the ones left behind, though. To your family and flock, we offer our deepest sympathy. In time your tears will lessen and you'll remember all the happy times you shared with Hal, but take the time to grieve properly. Maybe in time you will find it in your heart to welcome another feathered friend, but you will know when that time comes. Hugs from all of us, Falco, the boys, and mom Arlene

When dad picked up our paper, and visited Christy's grave for their daily prayer, he said it was actually chilly, can you believe it! Have a great day my dear friends, and give my love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

  Hi Hal,

Congrat's on being BOTD. I'm not sure if we ever met or not but my name is Cheyenne and I'm also a Meyer's Parrot. Mommy calls me her Miss Attitude Bird just cause I want what I want and I would like to have ALL of her attention ALL of the time! So what's wrong with that LOL??? Here's a vote for you and I hope you have as much fun in the Castle as my Flock and I did when we were there. Bye for now.
