||Four years old|
||New Jersey, USA|
is a four-year-old albino parakeet. I got her in the summer of 2003
and it was one of the best decisions I've ever made. Star is the light
of my life. Every time I walk into the room she bursts out into chirps.
She's such a little sweetheart. She has bonded with me the most out of
everyone in my family. Although she doesn't come out of her cage, I can
easily pet her and hand feed her. She will not except anyone hand-feeding
her except me and she refuses to take it. She trusts me the most out of
everyone in the house and she's always so cheerful.
Star certainly has a lot of personality. She is very funny when she
wants to, and also very smart. She changes moods very quickly. One
minute, she is making angry budgie sounds and when you say "Star" she'll
chirp happily at you. She enjoys hearing birds outside in the morning
and when she hears them she goes nuts. Star knows her name, and often
tries to talk. She has not succeeded yet in doing so, but she might
soon. She also knows how to open the cage door, and anytime you hear the
clanking you know exactly what it is. Star opening the door. She can't
open fully but she's smart so she may find out how to one day. She is
also very hammy. If you take out the camera she gets all excited because
she knows what's to come. A photo shoot, of course!
A lot of people are fascinated by her color, I've been told countlessly
how rare she is. They think that's the reason I picked her out. In all
honestly, I don't care about her color. It may be nice to have a rare
colored bird sometimes, but I love her more for her personality. She's
the cutest and funniest bird I've ever had the honor of owning. She is
my heart bird, and I wouldn't trade her for anything.
