My mom bought me from an aviary in Florida. I now live in TX and I love my home! I'm almost six months and can already say 'cool' and 'good boy'. I'm still working on other words..

Hi! My name is Tristan

I am an African Grey from San Angelo, TX.



6 years old   M

African Grey

Peanuts and anything carbs.

Top of my cage, looking outside!

My mom taking my bowls away! (even though it's for cleaning and refilling... My toys not doing what I want them to do, I just get so red on my face grrrrrrr!

She shares with me her breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks...and gives me the best scratchies on my head!

If I see something on the bowl I don't like I throw it on the floor, best yet, on the carpet...Oh, for some reason I really don't like bananas, but I love carrots!.

  Happy Thanksgiving, Tristan
It's a holiday once again in our fast-moving year of 2009 so I'm flying around to each bird I've added to my list of friends over my years here on the BC to wish them a Bountiful Holiday. I hope you're are happy and healthy, Tristan. I'm sure you've grown and changed so much along with learned so many things. Someday I know I'm going to get lucky and hear from you again... can't wait to found out how you are. Until then, here's a kiss from K *v*

For the Thanksgiving Holiday all my flockmates who have a BC page are featured on my page in the extra photos section. It's a family holiday after all!

Come visit me, Kelly.

  Hello Tristan~
Kelly here! I'm in luck today- I have command of the computer so am making a big ol' swoop of the BC to visit a bunch of friends I've not said hi to for a while. Trust your spring is winding up nicely and you're ready for the summer season to start. (It is technically still spring, amazingly enough.) We've had a very cool spring here in IL, a nice change, according to what I hear my parronts saying. You ask me, it could've been a little warmer. There were lots of days I couldn't go out to the aviary because it was just a little too cool for a bird from Africa! Mom assures me that next week is going to feel a bit more like the Savanna so I'm countin' on lots of hours in the aviary. That means spray baths (I'm okay with those), fruit kabobs (it doesn't matter how messy I am outside!) and loads of vitamin D. I'll also get to work on my imitation of the weed eater, the birds at the feeders, and the neighbor lady yelling "Geooooorge?" Fun!

Before I go, I'd like to leave an invitation to visit the hatchday page. Come see if any birdie's celebrating today and if so, click on their avatar in my BC Aviary to be whisked to their page where you can wish them a Happy Day. Hope you will... I know they'd love a visit from you.

Come visit me, Kelly.

  Tristan!!
Finally!! I found you!! Let me explain... I have a list I keep of all the birdies I've ever written to. Occasionally I perch and go through the WHOLE list, writing a short note to everybirdie. Well, after going through that list one weekend, I realized I'd not seen your face among my visits. I searched and searched that list for your name but couldn't find it. It had somehow gotten erased! Then suddenly, and I'm embarrassed to admit this part, I couldn't remember your name, having read over so many! So you know what I did? I went through page after page of my past notes, searching for your name, knowing that when I saw it, I would recognize it as the one I'd lost. What a relief when I came across your December note. "Tristan" - what a beautiful name!! It's back on my list of friends and you know, I think it's safe to say, I'll never forget it again. Here's hoping all is well with you, that you're growing and changing, finding new things that you like do and eat, say and feel. My wish is that there'll come a day, soon, that you'll fly in and let me know how you are. Until then, I shall wish you well... Kisses from K *v*

  Hello Tristan!
Coming by to say "Hi", see what's new with you, and let you know I'm thinking about'cha! I see you've got new pictures! Tell me, did you tear into that apple? Make mincemeat out of it? I love shredding apples. In the fall the neighbors' tree is overloaded with apples and mom is always welcomed to take what she wants from it. I get an apple a day for many weeks just for chunking into pieces. It's put on a birdie-kabob stick and hung above my cage where I quickly reduce it to applesauce!! Fun! I'm curious to hear what YOU did with your apple. Know that I wish you many happy days... K *v*

  Hi from Lee-Roial
The holidays were fantastic. I cannot remember anything like them in my past. My new mom told me that my old dad’s wife and the kids want to come by and visit and see all the birds. Mom told them yes, but the rules are going to be quite strict. No touching any of us, for starters… and most of all Mom wants to show how I have come along. She told me she is going to remind the lady to remember something for me for Christmas, because she is sure it is something my dad would have wanted. lol I go through toys so fast, why not. I have never in my life had so much new food to try – everything has been fantastic. Oh, okay, there are a couple of things I hope Mom doesn’t give me again but I did try them like she asked me to, before putting my beak up at them and saying I don’t like it. Thanks to everybirdie here on the Bird Channel, this week has been incredible. I am not looking forward to it ending but all good things must come to an end, and it will be Vinnie’s turn… I am still in awe over how many new friends I have made here. I started 2 weeks ago with a few good friends here, and with a little help from them, I have met the best of the best, which includes each and everyone of you, my new friends. Thank you for just being who you are! I love each and every one of you!

Come visit me, Leroy, Little Bit & Chloe - Thank you everybirdy!!, Gizmo - Thanks everybirdy for BOTD!, Max, Jasper - Thanks everybirdy for BOTD!, Micky - Thanks everybirdy for BOTD!, PEPPER-Thanks for BOTM!, TiPaul - Who was 8000???

Oh Tristan, just look at how you're growing!! What a precious and darling face you have. And look at those talented toes, holding that peanut, that beak working the treat out of the shell!

So good to hear from you. Thanksgiving Dinner sounded pretty tasty at your place. I've never tried mince pie. I must be good if you liked it. I can picture you wiping your beak off after each sampling; that's what I do too. Like your newest photos; you're such a beautiful young bird... that black beak and those dark eyes. I remember those days. It's looking a lot like Christmas here at my place what with all the lights and the decorations. I like the music that plays nonstop too. Don't have that any other time of the year. The snow outside adds to the spirit of the holiday... glad I do't have to go out in it tho. Brrr! Happy Holidays to you, T. K *v*

  Wishing You a Season of Thanks
Your first Thanksgiving! What'd you think of it? Did you get a sampling of all the yummy stuff that's fixed for this special day? I had a bit of bread dressing and sweet potatoes and am hoping for a smidgeon of pie tomorrow. I'll bet at the top of your list of things you're thankful for is the fact that you have a wonderful, loving home to call your own. That right there is the greatest blessing! Having you for a friend is one too. Kisses from K *v*

  Good Evening, Tristan
How's it going, Little Cutie? Maybe you don't want to be called 'little' anymore, or 'cutie' for that matter. Maybe you're feeling all grown up and like a big guy now that you've been home for six weeks. A lot has probably changed for you in that time; you're likely feeling all comfortable with the routine you now know as LIFE. So glad you're a happy little ... oops, there's that word again.... happy guy. I tried something new today; hanging from mom's finger by one toy, leaning out to give mom a kiss then launching into a whistled tune. I like all the praise and head scratches I get for doing something entertaining. They're so motivational. Kisses from me to you, Tristan. K *v*

  How are You?
Bet you're growing bigger and fluffy and cuter everyday, if cuter is even possible for you. I see you've got Peanuts and Popcorn listed as favorite treats- I like those too!- and carrots as a preference over bananas. The older I get (I'm 4.5) the more I'm wiling to try. Didn't used to like bananas either. Either ignored them or tossed them out of the way, a lot like you're doing! Now I eat both fresh bananas and the dried ones. Still don't eat fresh carrots. Like to make a big mess with them but don't actually EAT any of them. Cooked ones go down better. Hoping you're having one happy day after another. Come tell me more about your days sometime. Until then, Kisses from K *v*

Ahhhhh.... look at your newest picture! Oh, I just want to KISS that precious beak!! I'll bet your mom can't STOP kissin' on you. So, what do you think of Home? Your cage looks like such a fun place to hang out. I'm thinking though that you spend very little time there. So you've found you like carrots, peanuts and popcorn so far. Mmmm... I could easily come and snack with you. Sounds like you've got the famous 'Throw it on the floor' routine down pat. I was up here on the loft the other day, sorting through the morsels in the food bowl on the playstand... and chunking out the stuff I didn't want. What's great about doing from up here on the loft is, if you get it flicked back over your shoulder far enough, it goes all the way to the first floor! Now THAT'S fun!! Welcome Home, Tristan. I know you're going to love life and your new family. I'm so glad I'm your friend right from the beginning—I'll get to watch and hear all about your growing up. You be careful, Little Buddy. K *v*

I'm so curious as to how you're doing now that you're home, Tristan. I'll bet you're just loving all the cuddles and loving you're getting. Can't wait to hear all about it. K *v*

Kelly here to peek in and see if you've made it home today, Tristan. I bet all sorts of thoughts are flying through your head tonight but may the most comforting one be "I'm finally HOME." Sleep sweetly tonight then come and tell me all about your new place. With luv... K *v*

Come visit me, Kelly.
