I'm getting my first real dose of the famed cockatiel sweetness!

My 'tiel boys Fred and Kraz were/are crotchety old men (even as babies :rolleyes:) with attitude out the wazoo, and a penchant for beating up the nearest hand with the fury of harpies. Kraz loves to serenade me and gives me heart wings all day long, but boy of boy if he ever so much as sees my hands...yikes. Opening the cage to change out water and food is like going into battle with a very angry furby.

Tiny 'Tiel, on the other hand, is all about getting as much attention as possible. She hops around her tank following my every move, and when I go in to refill her water or to move something, she waddles right on over and tries to step up on my fingers. A couple minutes ago she managed to hobble up onto my hand, and then she hauled herself up my shirt sleeve (with some help) to snuggle into my hair. She's just too cute. She reminds me a bit of my dear little Sprite.

Probably just the honeymoon period, but I'm lovin' it.

She sounds absolutely adorable! I think this all was truly meant to be. I’m so extremely happy that she already feels really comfortable in her new home. :heart: You have such a huge, caring heart. Thank you. :hug8:

Amazing she survived. And then to be so accepting of her new environment. She doesn’t sound like someone release her. Maybe she escaped. Is she banded, I don’t remember if that question was asked or answered. I’m so happy she is doing so well.

Honeymoon? Awww...I don't think so. :) Female tiels can show some attitude but mine forget it about it quickly. I think they like their cuddles. In general, I think female tiels are more affectionate and cuddly than the males. My 2 females are very cuddly and friendly, my 4 males - when they want to be.:joyful:

She is such a cute and happy looking little girl. It's as if all her recent past experiences never happened and she's back home where she belongs. She is going to bond with you very tightly would be my guess.

This just in: there's another lost birdie on the loose!!

Someone has been posting signs on poles and in mailboxes alerting the neighbourhood to a lost Amazon in the area! Apparently the owner's dad came by to visit without giving advance warning, and opened the door when the 'zon wasn't in his cage, spooking him and causing him to fly outside.

This looks like a job for the Bird Wrangler.

This could be your next career.

:lol: At least this one HAS an owner who's looking for them and not another poor Tiel!

Fingers crossed the owner has heard of and knows how to track down the excaped bird whisperer to save his bird.:lol:

I hope they manage to capture the poor thing so it’s not out in the cold for too long.
