Aimie


This is our Yellow Nape Amazon, Aimie. We've had her for 5 years now, we rescued her from a pet store. She speaks Spanish and we rarely know what she's saying. She mainly jibber jabbers like a little child.
She's a daddy's girl and loves Mike ... she takes showers with him, rides on his shoulder when we are driving to Beaver, she has perches in the family room, living room, shower, garage and backyard. When we come home, we must get her immediately or she starts yelling..."HELLLLLLOOOOOOOOO"!!!!! In this picture, she is eating a chicken wing. Our parrots love to eat hamburger, scrambled eggs, tiny amounts of cheese and peanut butter, grapes, bananas, apples. We spoil them rotten.

I've always wanted a bird, but worry about the poop???

I get to meet Aimie in Beaver too! Score! Tell me you bring Sunnie with you too? The stories you told me are so funny!

Terri said...

We used to bring Sunnie to Beaver...
but first of all...
he gets car sick and throws up most of the way... we had to cover him and that didn't always help.

NOW, we have to bring so much stuff for Matthew that we don't have room for his "travel cage" that Mike built.

When I was growing up we had a double yellow head....his favorite thing to eat was hot peppers.....like the one for tabasco sauce....my grandma had a tree of them and she would bring over branches for him....

AAAHHH!!! SHE'S SO CUTE TOO!

We have two cockatiels that are with Will's Mom right now. We're getting them back next month. I miss them terribly. "Evil Betty" is one of them. I've had him since he was a chick. I used to take them in the shower with me too. And to see two little birds take baths in your hands??? It is one of the most peaceful, beautiful things I've ever witnessed.

I love that birds are cannibals. I've fed some at Disneyland eggs once. They happily ate them all.
