My name is Emily and I have a pet parakeet named Fellows. He
absolutely loves himself. All he does all day is look in the reflection of
the window and talk to himself always hoping for it to answer back. He
always makes me crack up when he does this. But he can almost find his
reflection everywhere: The glossy wood floors, the shiny green tiles in
the bathroom, and the reflection of an iPod screen. He is such a
character!! He even chases the mouse on the computer screen! There is no
place where he can't find a friend. He thinks he's so popular with all his
"friends" he finds everywhere. Everything he does always makes me end up
on the floor laughing.
When there is a lot of noise and talking he always tries to be the
loudest, but when it's dead silence in the room he disappears and pretends
he's not there. That's why I always try to keep the radio on so he doesn't
feel so alone when nobody's around or when I'm not there to take him out
of his cage. He makes these beautiful, soothing trills when he's relaxed
but when something goes wrong or when people start yelling/arguing he
makes these loud screeches telling everybody to "Shut up!" throwing his
own tantrum. This bird is like a child, he hates his veggies and fruits
but loves his snacks (millet). He is too stubborn to try anything else but
his regular seeds and millet.
At the end of the day I take him out of his cage before bed time, plop
down on the couch with him and watch TV flipping through the channels,
listening to him grinding his beak (this is a sign of contentment for
birds). I love this bird.
