Hello there!

I've just signed up here on Talk Parrots! I've been a member over on Talk Budgies since September, but I've decided that it wouldn't hurt to learn about other types of birds, as well.

Funny thing is I used to be terrified of birds! My neighbors raise homing pigeons and unfortunately they get a bit territorial during the spring and they dive bomb me when I go outside. I don't really mind it now. Even before then, I had a bad experience with a family friend's cockatiel. This hen didnt like children, and whenever I tried to pet her, she would always bite.

That all changed when I got my little budgie hen, Elsa. I adopted her on April 21, 2014, one day before my birthday. She didn't seem truly happy until I got her a friend on December 26th, my budgie cock named Gilbert. He's almost 6 moths old now. They're the loves of life. Elsa is semi-tame, and I'm working with Gilbert. I have such a soft spot for budgies, but I fall in love with the various types of parrots I see at my local pet shop every time I visit to get supplies. There's a little Sun Conure there that I coo over every time I see her/her.
