I met a grey-cheeked parakeet many years ago, back when I had budgies. I thought that he was the most inquisitive, active little critter and hoped to get one in the future. After my lovebird, Beetle, passed away, I had hoped to find one.

Sadly, grey-cheeks are not as common or as easy to find as they were some 15+ years ago... but there are breeders out there working with other members of the brotogeris family. A wonderful breeder announced that she had golden-winged parakeet babies available this summer and I jumped at the chance to bring another feathered friend into my life.

Hi! My name is Pickle (golden-winged parakeet)

I am a Brotogeris from Bellmawr, NJ.

Baby, Beebins, Pickle-la-da, Pickle-pot, Pickle-puss, Piglet

8 years old   M


White-striped sunflower seeds, homemade birdie bread and granulated papaya.

On the top of my cage or on my human's knee.

Sigh... why must my human touch my food and water dishes? They are mine, mine, MINE!

She feeds me ALL sorts of fresh fruits, veggies and homemade things, like birdie bread and couscous. She also buys me LOTS of toys.

I love to soak my food in my water dish... and take a bath in it later!.

Enjoy each and every day :).

  Hey Pickle!
Hi. Mommy has never seen a bird of your species before, so she wanted me to ask you a few questions. Are you little, like the size of a lovebird? That's kinda what it looks like in you picture. Are you a rare kind of bird, or is mommy just ignorant of the greatest kinds of birds? and last but not least, about how long do birds of your species live? Please drop by and see me sometime. I left you a vote.

Come visit me, Eco.

I think you look like we could be distantly related. You're beautiful, and it's really cute that you almost look like you're smiling in your main picture.

Come visit me, Dixie & Duke.
