I have had Ricco (G2) for almost two months now, which may not seem like much time, but gosh it feels like we've known eachother forever! He is truly my heart and soul! My main concern when getting a bird was that I was afraid he or she wouldn't bond to me. Well, the exact opposite happened. He bonded to me and ONLY me and he HATES everyone else. Hahaha. Which is alright since I'm the one that cleans his cage, gives him baths, feeds him, etc. I'm his only caregiver. Sooo that's alright by me!

Anyway, we take showers together. I haven't had one shower alone since I brought him home! Which is great, he's a great shower buddy! We take drives in the car together, he has his own birdie carseat. We eat together, he shares my food as long as it's healthy, which it usually is. I don't salt anything, ever. Lol. We do pretty much everything together!
Awww ur relationship with ur feathredbaby sounds much like the 1 Seaweed and I share.He LOVES going 4 car rides on his carseat perch.He starts singing as soon as the car starts movng...its the cutest thing ever! Seaweed eats almost everything in my house LoL.No meal goes un noticed lol.He'll come right to our plate & helps himself lol.Hes quiet partial to being a theif lol.Now that I have Seweed in my life,I could never picture my life with out him! Its no coinsidence tat angels & birds both have wings! Birds are truelly heaven sent He brings smiles everyday! Never a dull moment in my house lo4l <--typo from Seaweed lol
Im so thankful that I can share my life with him
Thank u so much 4 sharing ur story with me.Really enjoy reading these lovely stories.Keep'em comming everyone Blessings

Re: What are the signs that your parrot as bonded with you ?

Hi seaweed! You are just a darling bird to love your mummy and daddy so much! Yes...boogie is the same..loving, attentive and affectionate. My husband jack originally wanted an eclectus, and purchased boogie from a reputable breeder here in Australia, hoping to have a long loving relationship. I wasn't so interested in birds, having never owned one ( I'm was more a cat person) but boogie chose me! And ignores my husband completely ( my husband is now resigned to this fact : ( and o.k with it) I am completely in love with boogie and he with me...it's such a wonderful bond...and difficult to explain to other people, just how powerful and special it is...I'm so happy you guys have this connection with seaweed! Beautiful! I look forward to hearing more about your gorgeous boy!

Re: What are the signs that your parrot as bonded with you ?

These are great stories. It's true that "non-bird-people" don't understand the depth of the relationship one can have with a bird, or their capability for emotional intelligence. Sometimes I miss Casady so much when I am away from her I'll say it right out loud without even thinking about it, and sometimes people will regard me strangely or question how someone can miss a bird...

Through her vocalizations and body language Casady communicates her desires pretty well, and I always try to listen. I think she was truly happy when I figured out that she likes me to crush the ends of her pinfeathers between my tumbnail and index finger...she closes her eyes and settles back into my hand. That's when we really started to bond, once I figured out the preening thing. She likes to be held like an ice cream cone, with her feet reasting on my thumb. If I don't wrap my fingers around her, she'll whine until I do. She loves to rub her face on mine, it is too cute.

I remember the first moment when Audrey finally decided to warm up to us. I was sitting down on the couch with my family ready to watch a movie and for the first time Audrey flew down to me and sat on me, snuggling up to me the entire time. Now she's like my little follower, everywhere I am she wants to be, always up for a snuggle and a cuddle. Even those times where I just want some me time, nope, Audrey comes flapping over for a cuddle haha :P
Even after these past few days when I've had to medicate her (which isn't fun for her at all) after being toweled and syringe fed this horrible medicine she still comes right up to me for a snuggle, holding no grudges <3 Not yet anyway lol!!
Its really amazing how much you can bond to a bird. I've had pets of all sorts over the years, and I have loved them dearly and bonded with them, but with Audrey it just seem's different! She has my whole heart!
I couldnt agree with you more! Seaweed has taken over my heart & home lol.Thats really encouraging to hear that after being toweled she was able to get over it quickly. I have to take seaweed to the vet to get his toe nails trimmed,not the 1st time he goes but I dont really like that he doesnt like it lol. I just bought 2 pumice perches 4 him in hopes that the toe nail trim visits can be a thing of the past.Do u trim/file Audreys Toe nails urself? I would venture to try it but Ive never/filed cut a parrots nails b4,dogs yes all the time,being a vet tech for 10 yrs.I can do anything to my dogs but birds are new 4 me lol. I read in the past threads that Audrey wasnt feeling well.I hope shes feeling better.Shes a beautiful parrot Thanks 4 sharing ur story with me.I really enjoyed it
I did trim Audrey's nails at first, I found it similar to trimming cat or rabbit nails, only difference is you can't see the blood inside their nails so its a bit more difficult, but I was just taking off the sharp tips. Now she has some pedicure perches as well and I don't have to do it anymore
Audrey is back to herself now, such a happy girl singing again which is great! The vet check this coming weekend will tell me if the medication has been successful but I'm thinking that it has!

Re: What are the signs that your parrot as bonded with you ?

I knew when Mi amigo had bonded with me when I could trust him, unconditionally, not to bite me or threaten me with his beak, in any way. I love this bird with all my heart and just hope and pray that we die on the same day, at the same moment, I can't even say that about my husband!!

You been talking to my wife behind my back Mare?!??!!

The bond is REALLY hard to explain, it has to be experienced. My bond with ReaRea and even Miri is great, the bond the wife has with the Zon's is scary almost. Wife can handle the GW's but oh ^&#$ me handling the Zon's is a pain.

The bond IS really hard to explain, WharfRat, I'm with you on that. There is definitely a connection going on!

Re: What are the signs that your parrot as bonded with you ?

About a year and a half ago I came home from work and there was a little parrot in the kitchen with my wife. I had previously had a cockatiel for a few months and had very basic knowledge of bird care. I told it to step up and took it into the living room, putting it on the arm of the sofa. We "talked" for about 45 minutes and I then put it back in the kitchen. I did that the next two nights. The fourth morning my wife tried to move it and it bit her, drawing blood. I named her Carla and she is still here. She tolerates my wife, but spends most of the time I'm home on my shoulder. When I go on business trips I have to call her everyday, Carla, not my wife. The only time she has bitten me drawing blood was when I tried to take her off my shoulder. One of my co-workers said that if someone met my wife they would say "Leslie? I thought your name was Carla!"

Re: What are the signs that your parrot as bonded with you ?

My relationships with my babies are all different. Jules was my first and she's a handful. She has attitude for days, but she'll go to anyone. I know that when I'm making breakfast for them that if I'm not fast enough, she's going to fly down and walk into the kitchen to sit on top of my foot until I get finished. She's very bossy like that. With Buju, he's my rescue Meyer's who doesn't have a mean bone in his body. I have to be very gentle with him because of his past, but he loves me I think mainly because he knows that I saved him. And then there's Micah who absolutely bonded with me the moment I brought him home. He flies all over the place trying to find me, loves to cuddle and lean into my neck as close as he can. He also presses his beak against my lips and will stay there as long as I let him lol.
