is a Black-headed caique. I do not know whether he is a male or
female, as that is very difficult to tell on a caique. Jaimy is a real
cuddler that will gladly sit with me. He is very playful and active and
seems so silly when out of his cage. Caiques are known for their
clownish and acrobatic behavior. Jaimy will hang upside down, jump,
roll, whistle ... all while you watch. Jaimy also likes to mimic what I
do. Naturally, he find everything I do interesting, so he wants to do it
at the same time.
Jaimy loves water very much. As soon as he hears the faucet, he becomes
totally happy. I then get him out the cage then go the spring to one's
feet and he quickly begins whistling 'papegaaitje leef je nog,'
'fjiet-fjieuw' and other melodies (he's not able to talk). After that he
jumps into the water and plays very hard. After a time, Jaimy becomes
very tired. After the games, he often nestles under my hair. There he
remains for the whole time until I him put him back in his cage!
Jaimy is very special to me. I hope you think he is, too!
