Introducing Sido!

Last month we visited our local bird rescue (Free Flight Exotic Bird Sanctuary) and met a little cockatiel named Sido. She was found in a dog park in November.sidoShe was very friendly and loved having her head scritched.sido2Of course, we fell in love with her.sido3So we decided to adopt her. Here we are with Sido on the day we brought her home (the eclectus parrot is Timmy, a little fellow that we are now sponsoring).usSido has been with us for one week now. She’s currently in quarantine in Harry’s office. Here she is in front of her flight cage.sido4She’s missing her tail feathers (only has two on one side) and the toenail/tip of one toe.  We’re going to let her wings grow out. She likes her veggies. Here she is enjoying some kale.

sido5Sido is very calm and gentle (a bit of a change from our busy little budgies). She likes to play with her toys. Dropping a ball over the side of the cage is fun.sido6So is playing with her crinkle paper on the couch.sido8She’s a “people bird” and is content to sit on our shoulders or on the play gym while we watch tv.sido7She’s a little love and we’re so glad that she’s part of the family. sido9Welcome to the flock, Sido!

  1. WOW!!!
    That is SO Cool!!! (I suppose it was only a matter of time…) And – No Wonder you have been posting all that cute cockatiel stuff lately!…
    Sido is a Darling, and couldn’t Ever have a more wonderful home than she does with the two of you.

  2. Your new bird is SO CUTE! I have always wanted a cockatiel but I have no idea what they are like! You have to keep us informed how they differ from budgies since thats all I have ever owned for 20 years!

    • She is! Well, so far there is a big difference in energy. Sido is in first gear and the budgies are in 5th. And her poops aren’t as “cute” as budgie poops. We’re still figuring everything out – but I’m sure Sido will be making appearances on the Corner : ).

  3. She is so sweet! (And you guys are so great for giving her such a good home!) You’ll have to let us know how the budgies take to her!

  4. OMGosh Sido is SO cute and so gorgeous! She sounds like such a sweet little bird and she is just beautiful!! Sido is such a lucky bird to be part of your flock now 🙂 I can’t wait to hear more about her adventures in her new home 😀

    • She is the sweetest. We can’t believe no one was looking for her. She’ll definitely be popping up on the Corner. Maybe we’ll have a “Sido Sunday” feature…
