Why did you choose the bird you chose?

Why did you choose the bird you chose?
I chose a lovebird because I heard they were absolutely darling. I think they're one of the cutest birds out there. Maybe I'm a bit biased, but I feel that the progress with my lovebird, I could not have made with any other bird. He went from a timid, scared, angry little devil to a bird who sits on my finger and rests on my shoulder. I chose a lovebird because they don't make a whole lot of noise, and when they do they aren't very loud compared to other birds. He requires little maintenance, just fresh food, water, toys and love. I can't imagine owning another bird now, since he is so integrated in my life. As we speak he is foraging for treats in the toy I made him. He's so smart.

So why did you choose the bird you own now? The intelligence, the looks? What else?

RE: Why did you choose the bird you chose?
I just got two budgie parakeets. You can see the details from this thread.

Why did I choose budgie parakeets?
1. They are pretty. I like eye candy. Smile
2. They aren't too big. They are small sized parrots. It cuts down on the cage size requirement.
3. They are very active and playful. It is fun to watch them and to play with them.
4. They are fairly easy to take care of. As the matter of fact, they are considered beginners' birds.
5. I have had experience taking care of them.
6. They have the potential to learn to talk. Big Grin

RE: Why did you choose the bird you chose?
I don't have any birds yet but I'm interested in reading these replies because I can't decide what type of bird I want! Do you have any pictures of your sweet bird?

Are all love birds known for being similar in temperament and attitude to yours or do you think yours is extraordinarily so?

How can you not be sweet with a name like "Love" bird?

I don't have any birds right now, but I have had parakeets and a cockatiel before. I love the pretty colors that parakeets come in, and they have such interesting personalities as well. When i was growing up, my family had parakeets, and we loved letting them all come out and play in the little play area that we had for them. Mostly they stayed right there and went up and down on the little perches and swings, but sometimes one of them would take off and just start flying around the house, and then we had to catch them and bring the birds back to their play area.
I have always thought it would be awesome to have a parrot that talks, but I know that it is complicated to take care of a parrot; so if I get [/font]another bird, it would probably be a parakeet, or maybe a cockatiel.

RE: Why did you choose the bird you chose?
I chose a Cockatiel because my sister in law had one, and I fell in love with him because he was so cute. I visited a store several times that sold only birds, owned by a breeder and Bird specialist. I observed the behavior of each of the young birds for sale. I watched how they interacted with the other birds, and if they were friendly or stand offish with humans. After about five or six visits, I chose my little Kirby because he was smart, outgoing, friendly and full of amusing antics. He also loved to chase after the girls! Not bad for a bird only a few months old. I have never regretted my choice. He is very sweet and loving, and he has learned so much. Even after six years, he is till very teachable and learns new tricks, words, and songs. I never know what he will come up with next. Now my daughters and I are the only girls he can "chase" after, but he is always cat whistling at us, so I guess he hasn't given up!

He has also become a favorite of our friends. Everyone that comes to the house has to visit Kirby before they pay a bit of attention to us!

RE: Why did you choose the bird you chose?
I chose a rescued Umbrella Cockatoo. I have always had dogs, cats and horses and never really thought about a bird until I happen to be on petfinder.com and did a random search and scrolled through the pictures and one sweet face appeared and I looked into her eyes and that was it. We had to go through a very detailed adoption process and education in order to be able to adopt Nana. She's an older bird who had plucked most of her feathers on her chest and she had an attitude probably from abuse but she is so sweet. It's been 5 years now and I still the same way about her when I see her sweet face.
