Mango is just a little boy, and special because he is not one year
old yet and he knows the way from the living room to my bedroom. One
morning I got Mango's food bowl out of the cage and Mango started to do
long, slow squeaks. I went away and he did quick, loud ones. My mum's
friend was over and she said Mango must have been singing. I think the
quick ones meant "come back, I need an audience!"
I got a cockatiel for Christmas 2005. I named him Mango because of his
fluffy little orange cheeks. Sometimes he's just a wimp. He likes to
come in the shower with me. Afterwards I wrap him in a towel to dry him
and he falls asleep. Sometimes after showers he likes being blow-dried
with my mum's hair dryer! Mango's favorite game is when I wiggle my
fingers in front of his face and he tries to peck them (he's gentle and
never bites hard). He doesn't like big colorful things like my brother's
Krusty the Klown doll. He doesn't like the goldfish, either.
Mango goes crazy sometimes. He flies around really fast and crashes
into things. He never seems to hurt himself, and always seems to be
pretending he crashed on purpose! He is very affectionate and loves
company and adventure. Whenever I come home in the bus, Mango starts
tweeting when we're just in front of the house! He loves being cheeky and
pecking my brother on the nose! He is the fastest bird on the planet at
eating seed bells! He comes to the beach and has even been canoeing
with me, in his little cage. Is this enough information? I can talk
about him forever Just ask my dad!
