I guess my mid life crisis is birds and not a younger woman or a stupid fast car.

This just happened.........No name yet and his super HUGE cage is arriving at about 9PM from the store, free delivery :D

Barry

P.S. No name yet, BUT 100% tame, happy to step up and walk around on my shoulder, he just finished being hand fed a day or 2 ago :)

P.P.S Snuck in a new pic of Merlin looking all happy with himself :)

Amen, my brothers!:D Tiels are the best companion birds to have, but they can get a little too clingy. My boy tiel can wake the dead with his ear-shattering flock calls absent my presence.:D

Just took him outside for a little visit to my front yard, he is clipped so I was not going to worry. He looked around and went, nope happy to stay here on your shoulder and preen you, He also found my earing and has decided it is his new fav toy... OUCH LOL

I got it bad guys, is there a 12 step program? lol

Clipped wings or not it not a safe practice to take a bird outside. There are wind currents outside that do not exist inside a home where a bird, even with the wings clipped, could fly away for quite a distance. Not to mention a neighbors dog or cat or an owl or hawk that could end everything before you even have a chance to react. Please be careful and do not take any bird loose outside.

I should have explained better, I went on the steps and he didn't move, also was dead calm outside. I can see what you mean though, from now on just to be safe he will stay inside, and OUCH he would my earing again, how can I make him not think it is a toy?

I put him on my other shoulder and he went right back to it lol, lil stinker

Wow, Barry!

I can't believe you've purchased so many birds of different species within such a short time. :wow:

Congratulations on your new addition.

Please don't take this the wrong way, but it might be a good idea to consider put any purchases of additional birds on hold for at least a few months.

Sometimes it's very easy to get in over your head when you are caught up in the moment. ;)

Please make sure you have a good emergency vet fund set up and a birdy first aid kit at hand as it is always best to be prepared.

I'll be looking forward to seeing more pictures of your three feathered kids in the near future!

Congratulations again and best wishes!

Deb, no more birdies I swear, my midlife crises is over :D

I got a great job working from home and as such I can afford any vet bills that might pop up, so that is covered.

TBH When I got Merlin I was looking at this guy as well, as I live alone in a huge house I went back today to get Mr Noname yet.

Working on my first aid kit as I think stuff is called different here in Canada

Thank you for your concern I know where it is coming from :)

I'm glad your mid-life crisis ended so quickly! :giggle:

Thanks for your understanding regarding my concern and for putting my mind at ease with regard to potential vet expense and your birdy first aid kit. :hug: You're a great birdy-Dad already! :thumbsup:

By the way, if I were financially secure and lived in a huge house by myself I'd probably have more than the seven birds I currently own myself at this point in time. :rolleyes:

So you officially have a big flock :giggle:

Okay but *cough cough* you should name him Tucker

Goodness, you really have it bad! You'd better get to Birdaholics Anonymous ASAP! :eek:

Deb, 7 birds? wow!

I had to get him, he looked so lonely and sad, but no more birdies for a long while.

I think I will name him Echo, not sure yet but he calls I answers he calls back, I love his soft lil voice, hmmmmmmm Echo is growing on me lol

We shall see tomorrow after I sleep on it lol

There is a birdie vet 30 min away from me, so in case anything happens, I can be there in a flash.

P.S Lovebirds and Tiels and Budgies rule :p

And as I typed that he pooped on me lol Yes he is still on my shoulder :D

Barry, if he is anything like my tiel, he will stay on your shoulder until you know where freezes over...:D

Also, since you have the shiney ear ring catching his attention already, I will warn you, they have the eyes of an eagle, and any mole, skin tag, any flaw in your skin will become a target..:D

If Echo is going to be glued to one shoulder and Merlin to the other, is Buddy going to ride around on top of your head?

(Skipper and Scooter love playing on top of my head.) :giggle:

Hahaha he is a beauty and yes you've got it bad!!! I was in the pet store earlier too and it took every ounce of will power not to leave with a bunch of baby budgies, an Eclectus parrot (who befriended me instantly and took a huge chunk out of my fiances finger when he tried to move him off my shoulder!), a young kakariki and a lorikeet!!!! Seriously I could have taken all of them!
The only thing that stopped me is that we are going overseas in 9 weeks for a month so the timing is not quite right:(
