is PB, our adorable male cockatiel. He loves to sing to himself in
the mirror. He especially loves bathtime and splashing in the water. He
greets us when we walk in the door with a favorite song (one he wrote
himself!). He is the perfect gentleman and deserves to be honored every day.
PB is short for Peter Beakman (or Party Bird as my husband calls him).
He is very affectionate. He loves to cuddle up on our shoulder or chest
and take a nap with us. He especially loves having his head scratched.
He has a fascination with running water and whenever the sink or tub is
on he makes it known that he must be in the room with it. He enjoys
baths but loves the hair dryer even more. We discovered this when we
started blow drying him in winter when we thought it was too cold for
him to be wet for very long. He'll stand there with his wings spread out
and his chest held high while we dry him (on the lowest setting and not
for very long, of course). He loves to make up his own songs and sing
them to us while we do housework or take our baths and he has mastered
the infamous wolf whistle which he manages to do quite loudly at the
most bizarre moments (when we step out of the shower or flush the
toilet). He is very courteous in that he waits his turn for his little
bite of our dinner, but if he doesn't like what we're having, he throws
it on the floor, shakes his head in disgust and gives us his verbal
disapproval. He is our little PB (or Mr. Peebs as we have been known to
call him) and he is the greatest bird in the world!
