    It's been about 10 years coming, I finally managed to decide on a bird. Honestly, she picked me. I've met a lot of lovely birds in my life and none have ever warmed up to me so quickly. The shop owner warned me before i met her that she took a little while to warm up to people. But for both of us it was love at first sight.

    She's 18 months old, and I've named her Effie. She has made herself completely at home from the moment she came through the door. It's like she's certain nothing could ever hurt her. All in all she's a very typical caique: piggish, adventurous and very bullheaded. I love it!

    I know I probably have some tougher years coming up in the future, but at the moment she's the sweetest little lovebug (as long as you don't take her food). IMG_0592.JPG IMG_0599.JPG IMG_0601.JPG IMG_0604.JPG

    Thanks guys! I'm glad you are all here. The more I read on parrots, the more I realize I don't know! I've had to temporarily ban myself from googling symptoms of diseases caiques are prone to. She's a very happy, healthy girl. I just want her to stay that way.

    There are so many decisions to make! Food, vet (I have one I love but he's sooooo far away), what boundaries to set with her. Toys! Gosh she's annoying about them. She ignores them if they are hanging from her cage. I finally figured out if I drape one over a perch she likes to stand on the toys to shred them. Anyway, I'll be scouring the forums for answers and then posting any questions I have. I'm sure you'll hear a lot from me!
