Meet Soterion!Soterion lives in Michigan with Randy.Soterion’s favorite toy is his buddy Solomon. Soterion is infatuated with him and follows him around everywhere. He is absolutely crazy over anything green in the veggie department, always the first to the fresh greens I give them, and will fight to get his share. I just had a thought, maybe he chases Solomon around because he think’s he is a big green veggie… Lol…He is also crazy over nutriberries….he is about a year old now : ).

I kept hinting to my husband that we needed to get a mate for Oscar because he seemed lonely to me. He is in love with our cockatiel Jo Jo but she does not feel the same at all. After going away for 2 nights and my husband caring for the birds, he said, “Oscar needs mate he is lonely.” I tried to get a budgie from http://bird.rescueme.org/
Puck lives in Indiana with Jan.
Puck standing proudly in the pet grass, being worshiped by some besotted human.On Feb 20th, 2013 an individual then known as QA2 suddenly noticed he was stuck inside an eggshell that was getting tighter by the minute; with the determination that was to characterize his future personality, he heaved back and smashed that shell to smithereens. Two months later he came to live in Muncie, IN, was rechristened PUCK, and proceeded to rule.
Budgie pride. Like every modern budgie, he has computer skills.Puck has his own account at Amazon, where he orders his favorite millet sprays and stone ground oats from the human part of the store.He is madly in love with a certain plastic penguin-on-wheels named Rosina, and takes care to bap her on the head first thing every morning. After a month here, he said his first words, “My name is Puck.” Apparently, he had been paying close attention. His repertoire is extensive now, half what his human has taught him, half what he decided to imitate on his own. Imagine her surprise when he said, “Are you serious?” for the first time! The sound he imitates best is the rattle of a loose glass flower on his personal venetian mirror.
Meet Bullet!Bullet lives with Des in Florida. You can see more of Bullet’s photos on Des’s Deviant Art page.Bullet likes her spinny bells. She likes to get in between them. She also has jacks she throws and balls she pushes around. She’s very aggressive with her toys and likes to fight with them.I raised Bullet from a baby and took one photo everyday of her life for about 25 days to log her growth. I had no idea that was having an effect on her. The effect was she LOVES my camera and is very jealous and protective of it.She doesn’t like me taking pics of other birds or things. She does everything she can to be in front of the camera. I was taking pics of the Halloween decor next to her cage and she jumped on me and bit me. So funny as she wanted pics of her only. She’s a white lacewing not an albino. You can see the tan markings on her wings, beard and tail in some photos. She’s very feisty and a high maintenance budgie. But I love her and she’s a lot of fun. There are some videos of her on you YouTube too. My name there is Thagirion9.
Meet Robin!Robin lives in Virginia with Alexa. Robin was an escapee who was rescued by a new family in a city park. He was scared and tired when he first came home, trying to hide in a cardboard box for the car ride. Here he is exploring the car when we first found him – gotta have the first day picture! He’s a playful chatterbox. He hasn’t learned any words, but he does love to sing and play. He’s gotten a bit more comfortable with my hand in the cage. He won’t step up yet, but he does let me slowly move my finger toward him and pet his tail or his belly He also doesn’t mind me touching his feet, so stepping up may be just around the corner. Since he won’t come out of the cage yet, I move his home around so he can sit with me in different areas while I’m working in different areas of the house. Hence he is on a chair in this picture.
His favorite tricks are chasing his tail and doing somersaults around his perch.He now has two little birdie friends, Nymeria and Arya the finches. They don’t usually live in the same room, but sometimes they see each other and have chirping conversations : ).He loves going outside when the weather is nice! He chirps away and watches the outdoor birds.
Meet Bert and Ernie!Bert and Ernie live in Minnesota with Karon.At the window, their favorite spot to sit and these cute little faces greet me everyday when I get home from work. Ernie sitting by the door in the morning, he is always the first one out of the cage.Bert by the bells-his favorite napping spot. Preening on the top of the cage after our Sunday bath, just to make sure the feathers go everywhere! Ernie chewing the shoelace on the cage, for a boy he loves to chew on things! These two would be lost without each other! They make me laugh everyday and for as messy as they are, they give us 10 times the joy.
Meet Tweety Girl and Player!These cuties live with Selena in Indiana.Tweety Girl loves being on her swing all the time (and biting her mommy). Player is shy at trying things out. He loves their toys and to bob his head and chirp. They’ve been together almost a year (November 18th). Player loves Tweety Girl and she loves him.
Meet Celeste and Cyan! Named after two shades of blue, these little cuties live in Central Louisiana, United States, with Kamryn and her family.Celeste and Cyan are two spontaneous parakeets, about 6-7 months old. Too young to tell their exact gender, everyone just assumes Cyan is male and Celeste is female.They have only lived with Kamryn and her family for a few weeks, but are extremely friendly and love to perch on anyone and everyone’s head and shoulders. They then proceed to poop on them. House training is a work in progress.
Sadly their wings have to stay clipped because of the size of the house, but they love to flutter around. Especially in front of the window when Milo (their kitty sister that also likes to perch) is locked outside.Their favorite thing to do is perch on Kamryn’s shoulder, snuggle up to her neck, and very loudly “kiss” right by her ear while she is trying to watch a movie.Sometimes Kamryn will take photos of that and add captions, or doodles to them.
Their favorite snack is millet, and the container their vegetables are in.
They have a play gym but all they do is sit next to each other and chirp, like they do everywhere else. Unless the swing is involved. Swings before love.
