My human Grandpa rescued me from being attacked by two mean crows in his front yard. He built me a little make shift cage out of a milk crate and went and bought me some seeds. (He didn’t know at the time that us birds are suppose to have pellets, fruits and veggies, but that’s okay, because my previous owners didn’t know any better either, because Mom had a heck of a time getting me to convert to pellets. I was a big time seed junky!) They searched for my owners, but no one claimed me nor no one was looking for me either, so Grandpa gave me to the little human girl. Well Mom started researching birds and found out that I was suppose to eat pellets, fruits and veggies, so she turned my world upside down and convinced me pellets are yummy! I was mean and nasty to her at first, but again she convinced me she was really nice and it wasn’t long until I would climb out of my cage and climb up the couch to her! The little girl person named me Tinkerbell – Ummm excuse me that’s a girls name and I am a BOY! But when Mom told her I was a boy she said “Well Mom, he is just a bird, he doesn’t know that’s a girl’s name!” Well excuse me if I didn’t know it before I sure do know it now! The picture of me above, that’s my human child girl dressed up as an elf and that’s Mom dressed up as Santa, with my brother Tiki, he’s an Indian Ringneck, on her shoulder. I have a brother who is a blue Indian Ringneck, his name is Tiki and a sister (her name is Riley) who is an African Grey. But I was the first bird in the household and I am proud of it! Mom keeps saying she might be bringing home another sister - an Ekkie.. Awards

Hi! My name is Tinkerbell

I am a Cockatiel from GARDEN GROVE, CA.

I sometimes get called "Shhhh, Be Quite!" What kind of nickname is that. Hello I am just welcoming the sun at 4am!

12 years old   M


Millet, millet and more millet!

On the little girl humans shoulder or lap.

I HATE yellow pellets! YUCK! I always leave them in my bowl and Mom throws them to those weird dogs in the back yard and they eat them! Whatever as long as I don’t have to eat them!

She wrote a great poem about me and the rest of the flock.
I love birds, I love them so,
Life without them I’ll never know.

Each day starts with a meeting,
Chirps and whistles, it’s their own special greeting.

Fresh fruits and veggies to wash and chop,
Served with warm birdie bread to fill each crop.

Toys of wood, leather and bells,
Makes for fun with loud squawking yells.

Feathers and pellets all over my floor,
Does not deter me from loving them more.

As the sun fades we share kisses and scritches,
Then it’s off to each cage with sweet dream wishes.

As soon as I hear Mom’s car pull into the driveway, I love to start screaming to let everyone know she is home!.

  Hello Tinkerbell!
I have visited Tiki before, but I never knew he had a tiel sibling. It is nice to meet you. Thank you for visiting and congratulating me. I am glad you got rescued from those crows. That must have been terrifying. I had to be converted to pellets too. It was tough. Good luck to all of you on your poem. I am voting for you. Pringle

Come visit me, Pepper, Poirot, Pringle & Artistic Avian Avatars.

  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.

)Hi Tinkerbell! My name is Tinkerbell too! (I'm a girl, I'm also a Pacific Parrotlet;) My mom got bit by the bird bug too. (there's ten of us, 8 parrotlets, a sun conure, and a green-cheek conure. Before that there were two cockatiels, a lovebird, a senagal and an amazon. Mom moved and gave away the cockatiels and senagal. the lovebird passed away( 1995 and so did the amazon in 2003)So now mom has us.

Come visit me, Tinkerbell, Two-key, Jordee & Lil Bird.
