Chico ... Grey split Cockatiel hatched April 2004
Belongs to ... Hugh & Karen
Chico is a shy, gentle bird, who is the guardian of the house. He loves
to look out the picture window at the deer and moose who come to visit our
yard. He now calls to me when someone comes up the lane. Every morning we
are serenaded by his beautiful songs, and wolf whistles. He loves it when
you talk to him and knows he is a "beautiful boy".
Chloe is sweet, loveable, curious
little girl and loves life. Chloe is the bath queen and is comical to
watch her turn almost inside out to catch every drop, while Chico tries get
as far away as possible. She does her "beautiful me" routine,
stretching out her wings and tail while hanging off the perch. Whatever she can get
into is her favorite place to be - a bath in a bowl of milk and Cheerios, picking
at anything beaded, perching on the star on the Christmas tree, hiding in
the tree at bedtime, helping vaccum and other household chores. Her vivacious
personality has even charmed her Vet. Chico calls her when she strays too far,
so I know when she is into trouble. They love to fly around the
house and are beautiful to watch, as they bob and weave calling to each other.
Chloe sits on the diningroom window and often has a downy woodpecker outside
to visit her, following her back and forth along the sill.
Chico and Chloe love to spend the summer days outside watching and calling
to their many wild bird friends, playing on their toys and tree branches,
and eating treats from their own organic garden.
