Hi - new to owning a bird

Hello. I've always wanted to own a parrot... so I started with a parakeet and am finding out there's lots for me to learn! I've had 'Tweety' about a year now and have gotten her so she'll get on my fingure and ride a little ways, but know there's much farther we can go.

Hi, welcome. You will find LOTS of nice here. I had a blue budgie years and years ago. His name was Sweetie, and he really was. They are such little characters, full of personality. So far it sounds like your making alot of headway with him. I luv them...
