Hi! My name is Echo

I am an African Grey from Fleetwood, PA.


8 years old   F

African Grey

Food...doesn't matter what kind.

Under mom's chin. I love to snuggle as close as I can to mom's chin and take a nap while she rubs my neck. Oh boy do I live the life!

Being on my cage. I love to sit on the back of the lil' sofa or on the window perch.

They spoil me rotten. They give me yummy food and let me play with all the fun toys. I am spoiled rotten...or so mom says. he he he!

I get into EVERYTHING! I must chew up everything! Boy does momma get upset with me..

Echo is my name and stealing food is my game. he he he!.

  Hello Echo!
My goodness, I can't believe it's taken me this long to get back to your page with a note. It was so nice to hear all about what you're up to these days. I want to know MORE!

So your skin sister has turned out to be your favorite human. Isn't that something. It's neat that you go on expeditions with her. LOL about those furry things you see running around. I live with three furry things that run around. They were just in my room a minute ago sweeping the floor clean of all the dropped pieces of birdie load. It's a wonder the dogs aren't fat— we birds drop a lot of food.

Everything's going very well for me, thank you for asking. My flock's grown considerably since we last talked; I now live with two macaws, an DYH Amazon and two Greys, one of which is just visiting for a few weeks. It's a hoppin' place! Or rather, it's mom that's hopping to keep up with all of us.

What humans words are your favorites to say? I love calling the dogs, answering the phone, carrying on a conversation similar to what I hear my dad having with the oldest son who lives elsewhere, stuff like that. I've remained a Mama's Girl but still like to learn my words from Dad. I have yet to repeat anything I hear mom saying.

Thank you for the compliments on my pictures. I do enjoy being the focus of the camera's attention. *giggle*

Hope all is well with you and your family. And please tell Moosey thank for letting you have the computer so you could write to me.

K *v*

Come visit me, Kelly *v*.

It's Kelly! Oh my, I bet you've grown and changed since we last talked. Why, you've probably got a most impressive vocabulary at this point and all sorts of fancy tricks that work their magic on your mom. That's the Grey Way and I'll bet you're good at it.
I regret that it's been so long since I've come by. I got to thinking last night that I should go visit each of the greys on the list of friends I've made since joining the BC. I've been surprised at how long it's been since I've talked with some of them.
It's nice to see you again, Echo. Your long lost grey friend, K *v*

  Hi Echo! BBFF!
A Parrot's Christmas T'was the night before Christmas and all through the nest, not a wing was a flutter; we birds were at rest. Our feed cups were hung by the cage doors indeed, in hopes that Santa would fill them with seed. We Parrots were perching all snug in our beds, while visions of pine nuts danced through our heads. After another long day of taking our flap, Mom and Dad settled down for a long winter's nap. When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter, I sprang from my cage to see what was the matter. Away to the window I flew like a flash, chewed open the shutters and threw up my mash. The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow, looked as bare as my chest (well, what do you know?). When what to my beady eyes should appear, but a miniature sleigh and eight tiny reindeer. With a little grey driver, so lively and quick, I knew in a moment he wasn't too slick. Hey Senegals, and Conures, and Yellow Napes, and Toucans, Macaws, and Eclectus, and all you Moluccans. To the top of your perches (don't splatter the wall), now listen, now listen; can you hear our loud call? As seed shucks that wild parrots make fly, when they meet with an obstacle; take that in your eye! So up to the nest-top those reindeer they flew, with a sleigh full of toys, and Santa Bird too. That's when I heard it, (was it The Real Macaw?) the scratching and digging of each little claw. As I flew back to my cage and was turning around, down the chimney Santa Bird crashed - - a terrible sound. He was dressed all in feathers from his head to his foot, and his wings were all tarnished with ashes and soot. Zac Squiggles' safe toys he had flung on his back, and he looked like a vulture awaiting a snack. His eyes, how they twinkled! His strutting, how merry! his grey wings enormous, his red tail like a cherry! His sharp little beak was as black as a crow, and the skin on his chest was as bare as the snow. The stump of a cracker he held tight in his bill, and he gobbled the crumbs 'til he'd had his fill. He had a grey face, and a round naked belly, that was as ugly and pink, as a ham from the deli. He was chubby and plump, a right jolly grey elf, and I laughed, when I saw him, cause he looked like myself. But, he let me know I had nothing to dread, everything was okay, cause my tail was red. He spoke lots of words, while he continued his work, and filled all the treat cups, then called me a jerk. And laying a wing-tip aside of his beak, up the chimney he rose like a sneak. He sprang to his sleigh, to the team gave a whistle, and away they all flew, like the down off a Quetzal. But, I heard him shriek, ere he flew out of sight, "Pine nuts to all, and to all a good-flight! " Here's a vote for you. Hope you can fly by for another visit real soon! BR-r-r-r, It's 17 degrees here! Warm hugs, Dew Drop, Jingle, Honey Bun, and Sweetie

Sounds like your in trouble now! Wait until she makes funny pics of you, like my mom...hehehe! Maybe you need to teach tootles how to play by himself. It's been a long day here for my family, they were away for most of the day. We spent half the day in our cages."I guess, mom couldn't wait to get out and spend some of her B-day money on herself. Now mom is looking tired.Not much else going on here.V4U Ivy

  Ah, Thanks, Echo
I'm pleased you like my photographs. No, mom's not a professional picture-taker; she just has a really good bird!! I tried to wear one more crown that mom found but it was just too heavy and a little too big to stay on my head right; it kept sliding to one side even though I was holding very still. I ended up just posing with it and it now sits on mom's computer as a reminder of the most enchanting week of my time here on the BC. I bet you'd do a fine job of wearing a little crown or tiara. I like it cause mom scratched my head with for several minutes before setting it on. The couple of times it slipped off I always got another little session of scratches with it. It's a wonder I didn't decide to just fling it off in hopes of a LOT of scritches! I'm honored you feel I was deserving of a week with the crown. It only happened because I had so many friends who generously shared their votes. Friends are a wonderful thing to have. Glad I'm making a friendship with you, Echo. Please tell Ms. Kiwi hello for me; I'll have to visit her and ask just what it was she got into on mom's desk, see if I might like to try the same thing. Oh, I probably shouldn't have said that to you; you're young, innocent and not yet full of 'baaaaad' ideas! It be best to keep it that way. K *v*

Come visit me, Kelly *v*.

  Cute in a Crown!
I agree; you'd look darn darling in a little tiara or slivery crown. You know, the tiara in my picture is a real one, not a photoshop addition. Mom made it for me and I was a very good little Queen and let her put it on my head! I'm pretty proud of myself for sitting still long enough for mom to take about 30 pictures! She said that was way more than she needed but because I was cooperating so nicely she just kept snapping away. I think your pictures are very nice. In a lot of mine I cheat and go outside and pose with flowers which adds to the color. My wings are trimmed in the summer which makes it easy to take me outdoors. They're growing out now so no more flower pictures. I wonder, what's giving you and Toots the orange glow on your faces in the last of the extra pics? I love that one; you both are so cuuuuute! Thanks for stopping by. You're such a dolly, Echo. K *v*

That's an interesting point; that you're the youngest yet the biggest of the flock! And you're not even done growing yet. Sounds like Tootles is very happy to have some Grey for company. That's sweet. I bet Kiwi's just feeling blue having to give up her spot as the 'baby' of the group, the newest in the flock. I hope she'll decide that it's ok to be nice to you once she realizes that mom loves each of you very much. Mom's say they don't have favorites but I think they do... there's something about each of us here that she favors so it all works out nicely. Especially when I'M the one sitting with her at the computer!! ~About the run for botw... a group of my friends decided one day that they wanted to see if they could work their magic on my behalf and gather in enough votes to win me a crown. They told me, 'You just sit back on your perch and let us take care of things.' I couldn't just do NOTHING... I HAVE to say thanks for each and every vote (with a note 'cause I'm a terrible guesser as to whom has left the 'secret' votes). I didn't know the world was so quiet at 2 in the morning. I'm usually dreaming about wild parties in a jungle somewhere about that time at night! That you're willing to fly by and leave me a vote for the rest of the week just goes to show how special a friend you are to me. I so hope that my guy Poirot, and my friends Jenny Lynn, Christy, Romeo & Coco realize their dream of me with a crown on Monday morning. Thanks for your help. K *v*

Kelly *v* here, come to find out how you're settling in at home. That Tootles has got your feathers polished to a lovely grey luster by now I'm sure. He's a good guy. Haven't chatted with him in ages. Got to gabbin' with your new sister, Kiwi and well, she keeps me updated on what Toots is doing. Had to chuckle when you called that green girl a 'piggy'. Do believe them amazons are famous for their insatiable appetites. Mom wishes I had more of an Amazon penchant for food. The other Grey that lives here at my house sure does; she's been called a piggy a few times in her life! Her wings don't need much of a trimming in the summer months 'cause she weighs so much, unlike me who's technically a light-weight for a CAG. Oooo, I just love your dark eyes. I remember when I used to look just like that. I bet your momma is just lovin' on you like crazy 'cause she knows these 'baby days' will be gone all too soon. Hope you don't mind me calling you a baby... it's great to be the baby in the family... so soak it up while you've got that status!! Kisses to you from K *v*

  Hi Echo
and mom keeps saying she might get an african grey some day hihihi. Moms are always looking just in case maybe one more it seems. We have a full house right now so no more dad says. We cant wait to see your picture too.I heard mom telling dad she ordered a CD to help birds talk and say words. I thought I talked enough but guess Mom cant understand it all or wants me to have more of a vocabulary. I thought I was noisy enough so maybe I will have to step things up here a little. Hope you will come visit with me any time you can my friend ….I love your company and consider you the best there is. Vote 4 U and Brawk to you later. Gus
