Rope

Trevor is such a trouble maker. At night Conner likes to hang out on his stick because it’s close to Audrey.  Trevor hangs out on the rope below or stands above Conner on the top of the cage.  No matter where he is, he fights with Conner. So I bought another rope perch – this […]

Paper

Trevor likes to chew things. He was so interested in chewing the paper of Audrey’s cage that he almost did a split. He’s such a sweet bird, no longer a baby but still cuddly at night.  It’s funny how much he dislikes being touched by humans except sometimes before bedtime.  You can also persuade him […]

Bottles

Audrey has a bookshelf that is all his own.  When the other birds fly to it I put them back on their cage. Audrey needs his own space because when he’s on the common cages the other birds chase him around.  I did allow Conner in Audrey’s space briefly, though, because they like to get […]

Cockatiels Outtakes

I finished a cross-stitch pattern for Audrey. I framed the picture but it’s hanging at work right now and I haven’t remembered to bring the camera to work. Once I do I can post pictures. It looks pretty great. In the meantime I’ve been taking pictures of Conner in preparation for his cross-stitch pattern. Can […]

Buddies

Open Cage

Cockatiels are so ridiculously curious about everything!  I turned Audrey’s cage into a magical playground for Conner and Trevor by securing the door higher.   Of course I put a clip around the door so it wouldn’t slam down on a bird.   Both Trevor and Conner had to explore inside Audrey’s cage.  It was […]

Alarm Clock

For some reason the alarm clock hasn’t been working lately.  It’s not a big deal, though, because I have a backup cockatiel alarm. Starting around 7:00 a.m., Conner starts making little happy noises in his cage.  It’s a very pleasant way to wake up on the weekdays.  And he’s not too loud on the weekend […]

The Importance of Routines

Birds are very routine-oriented birds.  It’s very important to maintain a consistent routine for them.  Not only does it make the birds happy, it will make the bird owner happy too because the birds will be less fussy. In the morning I get up and take a shower.  After the shower I take Conner and […]

Cockatiel Toy

It’s very important to keep your cockatiels occupied with toys.  Birds need to be stimulated.  Trevor has taken an interest in the toy below.  Can you see Trevor eyeing it? The toy is a bunch of shredded paper stuck through two holes.  On another side of the box there is a wooden block and a […]

A Play by Audrey Rufous Bird

Trevor: “So I was listening to Rush Limbaugh the other day when he said that there is no scientific evidence to support the proposition that eating fruits and vegetables prolongs your life.  And his so called evidence for this proposition is that Jack LaLane died.  Jack LaLane died at 96!  Plus, we’ve seen study after […]
