Hi All --

Glad to be apart of this community. I recently lost my Congo Grey after having been through most of my life with her. The past 26 years were a joy to have with Cookie. I guess I'm looking for a place to both share my experiences of birdie companionship, as well as grieve over her sudden passing.

I am 34 years old from sunny southern California. My wife and I love gardening and animals. Instead of having children, we may just adopt as many birds as possible!

I started young, and I parented my own budgies since the age of 12; then I upgraded to cockatiels as a teen later on.. Buuuut since I was an irresponsible kid who couldn't keep his own undergarments clean (let alone care for parrots), my parents eventually found better homes for them. Eventually I grew older, and alongside our Congo Grey Cookie, we matured together. Cookie had been with our family since I was 9. She was very smart and loved every member of the family and was loved by all. Now she's flying freely in birdy heaven.

Anyway -- enough of the sob story! Hoping to learn more about the best companions to man (I love dogs too, but we all know birds are superior!).

Welcome! It's so hard knowing them for so long and then having them leave us like that! What a special thing to experience though!
