I call my conure Charlie, Pooper, Poopy, Heep, Dinoboy (because birds are dinosaurs) my budgie Benny as Benny-boy, and lastly, I refer to all of my birds collectively as Burgess. Because it kinda sounds like "Birdies."

What silly nicknames do you name your critters? Redshift, my cockatiel, is 'Booger Bird' and Charlie, my conure, is 'Buzzsaw ' because of his habit of mowing through paper he's allowed to chew, LOL.
Paco went to Paco Belle to Pacololo (Hawaiian weed cuz she's crazy " li dat ") she's a 44 year old yellow nape Amazon.

I sing "Soldier Boy" to him, substituting Salty-Boy - its his next singing tune, I hope.
"Salty-boy, Oh my little Salty-boy!"
I sing "Paco's pretty a la " I'm so pretty/west side story) she joins in at and I pity any bird that doesn't feel that way!

21yr old LutinoxPearl Quarrion (sorry cockatiel) Munchkin aka The Princess
Munchkin is often called "the Princess" by us and visitors, also Missy and Pooper, ends up being Princess Missy Munchkin.
My old Canary who lived for nearly 20 years was Gandalf aka Alfie and our beautiful Galah baby was originally Gladys (was only 4-5 weeks out of nest ) when his mum was run over but he (eyes hadn't coloured) became Chook Chook aka bugger bird.

I feel like I'm the queen of horribly unhinged nicknames for my birds.
Tina: Teeba, Teenie
Siouxsie: Soozie Soo, Soup, Chicken Noodle Soupie, Soupie. (This nickname has gotten so bad we just call her Soup)
Betty: Crimebag. Bigfoot Betty
Squid: Squidward, Squidge, Squidgimus
Bonita(RIP): Bonbon, Nita, Benny, Bean burrito, Beaniebaby, the list literally is a mile long.
Jello: Jello Bello, Jello Biafra, Mr. Man
Honorable mention is my dog Henry Rollins. We can him Hamster, Ham-man, but he literally will respond to his 'wizard name': Hamma-wamma-bo-bamma-slamma-shamma!

Somehow, Stinkybeak is a popular name. Even though the birds donโ€™t stink; โ€œ-beakโ€ seems to be a popular parrot prefix or suffix, kind of like โ€œ-manโ€ or โ€œ-skiโ€ or โ€œ-bergโ€.

Hence, Nastybeak, sweetiebeak, snugglebeak, Beakmonster, Beakmeister etcโ€ฆ. Although when unfortunate poop incidents happen the bird gets called โ€œbutt birdโ€. Thank God these birds donโ€™t pick up speech like Lucy did.

And phrases like โ€œdonโ€™t give me that beak!โ€ โ€œWatch your beak,โ€ โ€œthis beakโ€™s for youโ€, โ€œbeak-tastic!โ€

If the mammal owners donโ€™t get it, theyโ€™re just being narrow-minded. Birds are better in so many ways.

My birds' nicknames may not be funny because I speak to them in English. But I'll try to translate them (some of them I've already written but here are some old and new ones)

Zenek:
- Huligan (hooligan, not used any longer)
- Gaล‚gan (togs)
- Dewastator (devastator)
- Zenobiusz (rather not used any longer)
- Srajdupa (shit-butt?)
*- Zen (only sometimes on PF)

Rozalka:
- maล‚pa (monkey)

Angela:
- niebieska (blue, only sometimes used)

Bourkes (all their flock):
- rรณลผowe (pinks)

All flock:
- pierzaste (feathered ones)

Oh no, most nikcknames seem to be negative :ROFLMAO:
These aren't nicknames but for non-Polish speakers other name variations aren't obvious (I use them too. most of them are positive so I don't always use such words ๐Ÿ˜… ):
Zenek --> Zenuล›
Rozalka --> Rozalcia
Jaล› --> Jasio, Jasiek
Fela --> Felcia
I forgot about one Zenek's nickname - Gargamel :ROFLMAO: It's very rare used but sometimes my mom does it.

They get nicknames having to do with their behavior, like Mr. PinchyBeak or Crunchybeak.
And now with Willowโ€™s new poop-cleaning (via beak) habit heโ€™s been nicknamed mr gross-beak or dirty bird. Yuck!
