Baby cockatiels I helped my mom hand raise, I did the keep them tame part which is the best part of course, cockatiels are my favorite of the small parrots. This picture is extra cute but it won't be my official entry as we just hand raised them and sold them (mother had a pet store) so they didn't stay as our pets for long even though this is probably the picture I am posting that'd be most likely to get more votes:


So I was having a hard time choosing between this picture and the next as my official entry and I'm still unsure but I have to choose, so this is going to have to be another just for fun, Jacob on his back as a baby:


And now for my official entry, my first pet ever, Spike the cockatiel playing in a K'Nex fort, as kids my brother and I loved playing with these. Spike is now 19 years old and my mother's friend has him, I go visit him once in a while. We couldn't keep him due to Jacob being allergic, Spike is happy where he lives now.
I love all of these pictures! I can imagine how hard it was to pick just one, but you picked well Spike is beyond adorable keeping watch there, and my tiel Spike sends feathered greetings!

Re: November 2019 POTM Contest

I am impressed beyond belief with the durable memories and overflowing love for the fids featured thus far. And we're not even through the first week. Amazing contest, Terry!!

Re: November 2019 POTM Contest

Here are some Just For Fun entries. These pics have always been particularly special to me, as my Bixby was valiantly fighting the sickness that eventually claimed his life when we took them. I feel like the love between us really comes across in these, and I've always cherished the way looking back at them makes me feel. Love you, Bixby!

Stephen, I realized I missed commenting on your earlier post about Cally, but am glad she is now sharing a post with the Warrior Bixby. Seeing them both makes my heart smile, too.
My friend, Bixby may have had a life that was far too short, but what a life it was.His life was filled with love, and that is so obvious in these pictures. He stole a lot of hearts along the way, including mine, and will never be forgotten.

The look of love and trust from Bixby leaps off the monitor, Stephen. You were so fortunate to have his powerful spirit between your hands.

Thank you, my friend! I really was fortunate to have him, even for the little time that I did.

November 2019 POTM Contest-resized95snapchat-99464250.jpg



Little miss Dj the day we met her. Asked the store owner about a lavender IRN, and he said that one had found a home, but he showed me this little one, and we ended up with a pair.

Sadly she is going through a terrible molt, and she looks similar to that picture currently with pin feathers everywhere, and she's turned into a rotten little soul, my ear is still scabbed from her taking a nibble about a month ago.

Re: November 2019 POTM Contest

When we first brought Kass home, despite the year long research and searching for the perfect breeder, I had a moment of "Uh-oh...I think I made a mistake getting such a large bird as our first bird!" because only my husband could get him out of the cage we brought him home in. Fast forward to a week later, and I caught him falling asleep on his gym. It's not the best video of him but it was certainly the first time we knew he was comfortable enough around us to fall asleep and be vulnerable.

Wasn't sure how to embed this video from flickr, but if you click the image you can view the video.
