DANG, there is no more beautiful bird than a well-feathered, well-preened Grey. What a good-looking parrot.
You're right about the crew here... I'd almost forgotten what it's like to crack up at the antics of the parrots (and their parronts).

A first order of business upon my return... a trip to the vet.
Here's the Rickeybird raising havoc in his travel crate/play box... Note the silence when I ask a special question. Dead silence. No bird in here. Nothing to see. Move along, move along...
That is a full-on, floor-rolling laughter minute or longer!!
Special love of vets is common in Julio's Kingdom as well!

Martypants, Lea, and Mr. Boats... steadfast connoisseurs of Rickeybird foolishness.

Here's a bird with a better attitude...
Oh no, there must be something SERIOUSLY wrong with that 'Zon, that's no way for any self-respecting bird to behave at the vet!! Please have the Rb show him how it's done, THIS is the proper attitude and demeanour - demonour - he should have!!!!

None. My wife has one too many. Kidding!
This post is from the OTHER resident rooster, aka Kirby, aka Rival of the Rickeybird. aka Gail's ol' man. Thank you for resurrecting that photo. It was from Halloween a few years ago, when I was going to get the bird a costume until I realized he didn't need one. Feel me?
Rival out

Yes, but you know how some hens are... so smitten.
Where there are horns, they see a halo; where there is a pitchfork, they see an olive branch. BAH.

By the way, good to see ya, Pants!

Oh don't I know it, Mr Rival! I don't know if you've made the acquaintance of my princess parrot Peachie or her boyfriend Lovejoy the lorikeet yet? A more classic case of the sweet innocent girl falling for the bad boy you will probably NEVER see, and they are MADLY in love!! πŸ’˜πŸ’˜πŸ’˜

Good to see you too, Rival, you and your lady have been away for far too long!

Julio demands to know how that video got out from his last vet visit!!
Although it portrays the precise beak cutting method, the vet had clearly removed the offending finger!! And who approved the removal of the vet screaming as that was in perfect pitch!!
Here you go, @SailBoat, I think maybe this is the sound you're looking for!!

The Rickeybird, 38-year-old Patagonian Conure
Well, well, well! Announcing a terrific event in the life of the Rickeybird. He will be featured in the December issue of Harrison's THE BULLETIN BIRD online publication. I submitted his story to the Customer Spotlight section, along with pictures, and they accepted. Here is the text, along with photos. I would encourage you all to submit your bird's tale.




The Rb

Please meet my Patagonian Conure, Rickeybird. He is 39 years old this year, and has thrived on Harrison's foods since his first year of life. My avian veterinarian recommended it at the time, and we've never turned back. He loves Harrison's almost as much as he loves his super-hot green chiles.

His accomplishments (with some assistance from me) include several pet-of-the-day venues, parrot of the month and multiple photograph of the month contests in the well-known international Parrot Forums online community, and numerous anecdotal and informational articles in various magazines. Lastly, he is an artists (prepare for a bit of fun here)! I have a very small art gallery online. A few years ago, I began to include items made by Rickeybird in my selections. Allow me to explain.

He has always chewed "designs" in his cage-cover overnight. I began to notice that some of these designs looked like people, things, symbols. I started cutting them out and 'matting' time on colored paper. A few have included subjects such as birds, hearts, moons...

Here is a photo of the artist in his studio.

The projected life span of a Patagonian is 30 years, but our avian vet says Rickeybird is going strong and may have many more years with me. My vet and I thank Harrison's High Potency Fine in no small part for the decades of health and happiness.

Have I told you lately that I love you? XOXOXO

Yes, Julio states that's the scream he recalls!!
And passes along he's gratitude!


RB's ever developing fame is no surprise to the Boats' household!
However, take care of the free bar at the Hot Hen's Club as YNL will not be picking-up the tab this year.

I am certain that Harrisons' will be interested in picking-up that tab this year!

Congratulations RB on yet another stellar accomplishment!!

Every now and then I take a trip down Memory Lane and cruise previous Scrapbook posts... this one caught my attention: it's the Rickeybird trading kisses: with me, and it is from 2016! Seven years! Parrot Forums is definitely part of our lifestyle.
