Don't Buy, Don't BreedPlease Adopt a Bird in Need.
He was a white capped Pionus parrot hatched on Nov 14, 1993 and died on Dec 8, 2009.He was the parrot who owned me. He got his name from a children's book called Budgie the helicopter written by Sarah Ferguson. Everyone always thought I had a parakeet because of it.
He never learned to talk but would definitely mimic sounds. He meowed like a cat dead on and learned that from another bird. He loved watching game shows, especially the price is right and would make the spinning wheel beep. I came home from a trip one time and he was imitating the smoke detector. It was quite irritating but that night when I went to bed my smoke detector started beeping. I think it had been doing that the whole time I was on my trip and Budgie was just trying to clue me in to that.
His most favorite thing in the whole wide world was taking a shower and getting the blow dry afterward and of course eating what ever was on MY plate.
I could go on and on with all the stories. He was the most unique character I've ever had in my life and he is sorely missed.
To work in joint cooperation with all avian rescue groups to try and eliminate the need for rescue groups by educating the public about aviculture issues. Until that is accomplished, we will provide a sanctuary for those unfortunate parrots that are in need of a home.
