Cockatiel Hand Fed Cockatiel questions?

Question by Jennifer: Hand Fed Cockatiel questions?
I am going to be getting a hand fed female or male cockatiel in early September. I wanted to know if hand fed cockatiels are quieter than other cockatiels. Would a female be quieter? I know all birds make noise but i want to limit the noise as much as possible. i can take the bird out for 6 hours a day. i have a large cage will many foraging toys and perches. If i am in my room upstairs with the bird and my door is closed, will my mom be able to hear the bird downstairs? Would a female be better? I am going to ask the breeder who is the quietest. i have had two parakeets before so i know how loud they are. will one female cockatiel be quieter than two parakeets? please help! my mom does not like loud noise all day. :)

Hummingbirds Q&A: How common are hummingbirds in Oklahoma?

Question by radioactive_babywipes: How common are hummingbirds in Oklahoma?
I’ve seen hummingbird feeders at the store and I didn’t want to get one unless the probability of getting a hummingbird to come was pretty high. Unless, other birds eat the same nectar…?

Best answer:

Answer by LeeAnn S
Hummingbirds are quite common. There are about 7 species in Oklahoma that visit for about 6 months out of the year, April through October. . So, buy the feeder, it may take a while, but they’ll get used to having food near your home and will stop by pretty often. You may find yourself making the sugar water mixture daily to put into the feeders. My grandpa used to make a huge jug at once and then kept refilling the feeders that way. Have fun!

Bird Identification Bird Identification?

Question by Dan: Bird Identification?
Does anyone know what type of bird this is? I am in PA. I see it all the time at our bird feeder but can’t identify it. I looked at various bird websites but to no avail.

Here is the link:


Best answer:

Answer by The Yodelling Bushman
Looks very much like a species of Starling (Sturnus vulgaris is the common Starling). We have them in plague proportions in parts of Australia (they were introduced in the 1850′s) Check with any local birdwatcher’s group for their status where you are.

Bird Suet Cakes wild bird feeding question?

Question by NY Reefs: wild bird feeding question?
where i live theres a lot of wild birds and especially the every growing population of some sort of domesticated green parrots or finches… when my bread or bagels go stale i decided to give them to the birds which they seem to enjoy…so i been doing this a lot lately cause i like being a nice guy. but my question is, feeding stale bread and bagels bad for wild birds? are there any home foods that i can feed to birds when they expire or should i just buy a bag of bird seeds?

Best answer:

Answer by Trust me I’m a Doctor ♥
You can continue to put stale bread or bagels out if you like, the birds will eat it if they are hungry. Be careful you don’t encourage rats though.

You can buy special bird feeders to hang up with peanuts or black sunflower seeds. Many of the packs of “wild bird seed” are actually mainly wheat (because its cheap) but not too many species of birds go mad for wheat apart from pigeons and sparrows so its a bit of a waste of money.

Finches For Sale Is 1/2" bar spacing to small for a medium sulphur crested cockatoo?

Question by Liz Sheep: Is 1/2″ bar spacing to small for a medium sulphur crested cockatoo?
I’ve seen cages for sale with 1/2″ (or 1.5mm for the rest of the world) bar spacing for “smaller” cockatoos – which is what Elvis is, a medium sulphur crested.

its a newer – but MUCH bigger cage, the bars are only 0.5cm smaller gap.

(just realized I put MM above – sorry! his old cage has 2cm bar spacing, the new one is 1.5cm but a good two foot wider over all, so much much larger cage for him)
Bar size is the same as the old cage – I at least remembered to check that before buying lol just forgot to check spacing other than it was escape and “head stuck” proof!

Best answer:

Answer by Sonnie
That is small, but if that is what you already have, then there is no problem for using it as long as it is a big cage.

04/25/09 115/365 I walked around Mill Grove for a couple of hours tonight, and ended up with tired legs, a growling stomach and, for the most part, disappointing bird photos. As I was about to trudge back to the car, a blue jay whizzed past and landed on a branch right in front of me. It stayed there long enough for me to get several shots before flying away again.

I had a tough time deciding whether to use this shot for my POTD, or the one below. I finally chose this one because I think the closer crop emphasizes the varying shades of blue in the bird’s feathers.

FSU News Sports…

As Florida State Seminoles, we have teams that we will always love to hate, and losing in any athletic event to schools like Florida, Miami, or Clemson really gets under our skin. A win over any of those rival institutions is that much sweeter than a win over any other school, whether it's a sport that's so highly viewed and focused on as football or a sport that slips below most radars such volleyball or golf.

However, there is a school that isn't on that list that has taken pride in spoiling our athletic seasons and conference records this whole entire 2012-2013 period, driving daggers into our hearts slowly but surely. Some of you may already know who I'm talking about and for those of you who don't; I'll give you a hint. They're based out of Raleigh, North Carolina and sport the colors red and white.

Yes, the NC State Wolfpack.

NC State has been an oversized thorn in the side of Seminole athletics for too long now and being an ACC opponent, the 'Noles and Wolfpack have several different collision courses on different schedules. This past season, NC State has beaten almost every one of our school's major athletic programs, including basketball, baseball and football.

The Wolfpack from Raleigh has irritated some of our teams during regular season play, but not quite sent our teams packing. NC State took our basketball teams, both men's and women's, down a peg this athletic year.

The men's team was run out of the PNC arena by a score of 84-66, which was the final dagger in the team's chances for an NCAA Tournament bid, followed by the women's squad dropping a home game to The Pack only five days before.
Like the men's basketball team, the men's tennis team was dominated in Raleigh, being sent home with a 5-2 loss with an ACC loss that put them on the bad side of .500 in conference play.

Of the two sports that the Wolfpack completely spoiled seasons, one of came earlier in the year but will haunt many a Florida State supporter for years to come, and the other came very recently on the 11th of May.

Starting with the latter of the two, our 'Noles softball team had an incredibly dominant season in terms of both an overall record, but also ACC record, only to be spoiled by none other than NC State.

After going 18-2 in ACC play, including a series sweep against the Wolpack in Raleigh, the 'Noles sat atop the entire conference by a fairly large margin. With two wins in the Tallahassee-based ACC Championship game, our Seminoles had one last team to knock out before their 12th ACC title was rightfully earned, NC State. In what can only be described as a pitcher's duel, the Wolfpack just sneaked out of Tallahassee with a 1-0 win over our 19th-ranked Seminole team.

The most haunting NC State memory we have in recent history is a football game we've all obsessed over the past seven months. Our highly coveted, yet slightly doubted third-ranked 'Noles traveled to Raleigh in routine fashion on only the second road game of the season and look as if they're on their way to a sixth straight victory, only to have a second half meltdown, allowing NC State to rally a comeback that would be completed in the dwindling seconds as Mike Glennon found Bryan Underwood for a touchdown, putting the Wolfpack on top by a score of 17-16.

With a single play, FSU's national championship hopes came to an end, and Seminoles everywhere lowered their heads in defeat.

A happy ending and hope for redemption for our terribly strange story came through a series win from our fifth-ranked 'Noles baseball team.

A series that began in NC State's favor with a 3-1 Wolfpack win (a win that only added to the headache they've cause us already), ended well for our boys in Garnet and Gold as they piled on two convincing wins before the ride home, winning the second game 12-3 and then the third 8-4.

NC State being ranked seventh only made the series win that much sweeter.

With nearly all athletic schedules coming to an end, we can take a deep breath and start looking forward to the next group of seasons that are on their way in. The healing process began with the baseball team's wins over the dreaded red and white, and will only get better when their football team comes to visit October 26th.

Hopefully, with a nice blowout of our tormentors, we can shake off the Wolfpack voodoo they clearly cast upon us and get back to showing them who's boss.

After a pledge drive in 1994, V89 was able to upgrade to 2700 watts which allowed the station to reach outward of a 25-mile radius.

The 2000s was the start of a remarkable decade for the station, where it was nationally recognized in Rolling Stone Magazine, leading to its live audio streaming on their website. In 2001, musical legends Andrew Bird, Lesser Birds of Paradise and Aqueduct stopped by the station for an in-studio session.

The station holds a cattle call at the beginning of each semester. "You can work in all facets of radio broadcast including news, sports, writing, public
relations/promotions, production and announcing," said Laurents. "No experience is required. We provide hands-on training for all positions." Come get a taste of what V89 has to offer. WVFS Tallahassee has every Seminoles' music, sports and news needs covered. Visit V89 on for more information.

— Bryan Underwood vs. Lamarcus Joyner

If you're wondering why the name Bryan Underwood sounds so familiar, it's because he was on the receiving end of the game-winning touchdown in the NCSU upset last year. The receiver stands only 5 foot 9, but finished with ten receiving touchdowns last year and had an eight game streak in which he got into the endzone. The wideout is the Wolfpack's most explosive player and could get come rushes in the game as he has over a 100 yards rushing on the season. FSU has already contained ACC playmakers such as Stefon Diggs and Sammy Watkins on the season, and the 'Noles secondary, led by Lamarcus Joyner, will look to do the same with Underwood.

— Jack Tocho vs. Kelvin Benjamin

True freshman cornerback Jack Tocho got his first start last week against Wake Forest and finished the game with two interceptions. The 6-foot-1 defensive back's task this week? 6-foot-5 Kelvin Benjamin. Tocho is a big corner himself, but Benjamin dwarfs nearly the entire NC State roster and his leaping abilities make him even more of a threat. Redshirt freshman Jameis Winston will be sure to test the true freshman when Benjamin is lined up on him.

— Pete Thomas vs. Florida State Secondary

Pete Thomas is the starting quarterback for NC State, but is far from his predecessors (Russell Wilson and Mike Glennon) in terms of on the field success so far. The quarterback has eight interceptions on the season to three touchdowns, and will be facing a Florida State secondary that has seven players that have recorded an interception. Now, he does have 184 yards rushing on the year, but he'll need to put the ball in the air if he wants to do as the quarterbacks before him, beat Florida State.

— Robert Caldwell vs. Devonta Freeman

Freeman has been the most consistent back for the Seminoles this season and just looks faster and more explosive than ever. This week he'll be going up against Wolfpack middle linebacker Robert Caldwell. Caldwell leads NC State in tackles and tackles for loss with 7.5. Last season, Chris Thompson ran all over the Wolfpack, finishing with 141 yards. Freeman will look to avoid Caldwell's tackles in the backfield and will to try to have as much success as his predecessor.


Pied Bushchat (Male)
thorn birds

Image by AntoGros
The Pied Bushchat (Saxicola caprata) is a small passerine bird found ranging from West and Central Asia to South and Southeast Asia. About sixteen subspecies are recognized through its wide range with many island forms. It is a familiar bird of countryside and open scrub or grassland where it is found perched at the top of short thorn trees or other shrubs, looking out for insect prey. They pick up insects mainly from the ground, and were, like other chats, placed in the thrush family Turdidae, but are now considered as Old World flycatchers.

They nest in cavities in stone walls or in holes in an embankment, lining the nest with grass and animal hair. The males are black with white shoulder and vent patches whose extent varies among populations. Females are predominantly brownish while juveniles are speckled.

Answer by margecutter
It is always difficult to attract one species and deter others. There are feeders designed to allow access only to the small birds. You could try those.

Cardinals and house finches love black sunflower seeds. Cardinals also like peanuts (the kind sold in pet stores, no shell, no salt) and grapes. Gold Finches love niger or thistle. All birds appreciate a source of fresh, clean water.

African Grey Parrots Advice on an African Grey Parrot?

Question by Kait: Advice on an African Grey Parrot?
I have three smaller birds – a jenday conure, a meyers parrot, and a white-capped pionus. I have a friend with two african grey parrots, neither of them are bonded to each other or her and her family. One of them has started plucking, as she doesn’t really have time for him anymore. She asked us if we would be interested in adopting, and we are considering it. I have been doing a lot of research on them online, as I am really only familiar with smaller birds. Our birds are all kept in a seperate room off the main room of our house. We would most likely house him in a quieter nook of the house, at least to start, not in with our other birds. I am just looking for some general advice, any thoughts, tidbits, whatever anyone has to offer. Thanks so much!

Best answer:

Answer by ★ɱƔş┼ƹƦƴ ѕтαcу☯™
African Greys are not as loud and messy as other large parrots.. but they still can be loud.

Their diet should consist of 50 percent pellets, 5 percent seed, and 45 percent fresh fruit & veggies, and cooked healthy human foods such as pastas, bits of meat, eggs, etc.

Fruits & veggies they can eat:
Apples, carrots, blueberries, strawberries, rasberries, bananas, celery, etc.

Avoid avacado, chocolate, alcohol, and other harmful things. ♥

Thanks for the help

Answer by kmjnpbbppmajjbkhmbt
You going to school that long will be fine. Birds are very independent. The pros to have a cockatiel are that they are independent, they are not noisy, and they are interesting. There aren’t really any cons for cockatiels. I don’t know anything about Quakers. Sorry. No they can not eat Waffles. They can’t have any sugar or salt. Just as long as your sister doesn’t go near the bird or torture the bird then the bird won’t be scared.

I hope I helped!

Question by Georgie: The orbital ring/eye ring of a bird…?
Howdy! I don’t know all that much about birds yet, but I’m trying to learn. Are the orbital ring and the eye ring of a bird the same thing? If they are not, could you explain the difference to me please? I am looking at two different diagrams, and each one uses a different term, but the arrows pointing to the body parts are slightly indistinct, so it’s hard to tell. Thanks!!!

Best answer:

Answer by nekospiritfire
The orbital is the skeletal housing of the eye (The eye socket), the term eye ring (in birds) is usually referring to identifying coloration of skin or feathers near the eye.

Your dogs might be scaring them, especially if the dogs are outside. I’d encourage you to keep the dogs inside if you want to attract birds to your yard. The only thing I can think of, since you both have the same kind of feeder, is that the wild birds must prefer the food your neighbors are feeding them. Like I said before, I’d put out some black oil sunflower seeds, which are a favorite of many birds. You can include some suet and niger seed, too, to attract even more species of birds. Feed them some fruit, too, like grapes, oranges, and berries. You didn’t mention if you have a bird bath or any water source in your yard. If you don’t, that could be the other problem. Wild birds enjoy bathing and like to drink water after they eat. Give this a try and see what happens. I hope you start seeing some wild birds at your feeder soon.

I saw a contemptible little bird’s nest on the bottom step two days ago. I thought the bird was a fool. It turned out that the beginnings of a nest had blown out of the rafters. In fact, I found five excellent nests under there last night.

Adult pair of Pacific parrotlet, Forpus coelestis (also known as Lesson’s parrotlet or as the Celestial parrotlet. "Parrotlets" are also known as "pocket parrots".). These parrots are expressing a combination of two recessive colour variations (dilute and blue) known as dilute blue, pastel blue or, I believe, as the "American white". This pair is for sale.

Birdcage Q&A: Stretches/Tips for getting your birdcage and/or scorpion?

Question by ……….: Stretches/Tips for getting your birdcage and/or scorpion?
Hey!(: I’m a dancer and i’m trying really hard to get my birdcage and scorpion. What are some general tips for increasing flexibility in my back and those tricks specifically? Here is a little more information about both tricks:

Birdcage: I can easily do a chin stand, but i can’t hold it. What are some ways i can work on balancing/holding my chin stand for starters? Also, when i do a bridge i can also easily bend my elbows and stay on those (still in my bridge) but what i can’t do it move my feet close enough to my hands to make it a bird cage and getting my legs over and touching the ground. So any tips for that, and any stretches that can help me get closer and eventually DO it.

Scorpion: Without any strength or pain, i can do a scorpion with my leg bent. But i really want to straighten my leg! I can get pretty close, but what i have trouble with is walking my hands down to get it to straighten. According to all my instructors, my back is more than flexible enough to do it, its just getting my hands to walk down. I think that for this, its my hands/arms that need to be more flexible, but i’m not positive?

So please give me any tips/stretches pretty much anything helpful! :) If you need any more information please let me know:)

Answer by Milllie
cant really help on the birdcage because you are describing something that i call different when you say bird cage but the scorpian is easy.
depending on how you get into it is different. but if you grab the inside of your calf and pul it up and then move that hand to the outside of your leg:
when your hand moves to the outside of your leg, dont grab your ankle…grab your shin. then take your other hand and put it further towards yur kneeand straighten your leg. then continue sliding your hands down your leg. it isnt based onarm flexibility. bend your arms to bring your leg closer to the back of your head. good luck !

Nice Bird Facts photos

A few nice bird facts images I found:

The Bird Market. Part 2 of 8.
bird facts

Image by Desmond Kavanagh
In the apparent chaos of the Esfahan Bazaar and its twisting, branching system of interconnected corridors occasionally you come across something that throws you, that seems to defy reasoning. Sometimes a locked in mosque in a blindingly bright sunlit opening, other times a mysterious brown tower visible through a few openings in the canopy above with seemingly no entrance, every so often on the path an exquisitely detailed fountain shielded from the sky by solid tall walls and a roof of small red bricks.

The people did things that I didn’t understand, they seemingly obsessively pour water on the ground outside their stalls and at midday, even though they are indoors in the cool shade, they drape a small rug and sleep in their shops, wares left unattended. The labyrinth is deathly quiet for an hour and any attempt to blend in with the locals is lost in the very fact that you are still conscious (be aware of this, once i was invited for lunch in a man’s home and found myself obliged to sleep on his living room floor afterwards!).

From a busy road in the bazaar there is a small passage that slopes down, duck down this passable street and find yourself in the beating heart of the bazaar, far from the pretty craftwork and walls lined with jewellery and clothes.

This is the bird market, patroned only by locals. It’s like a western butchers but without the morals swept under the counter, you buy it, you kill it, you eat it.

Except for these lovely little things though, they’re dyed for a seasonal celebration.

Male Cardinal and Grosbeak: Pecking Order 3 of 3
bird facts

Image by Cindy Sue Causey
Project: Backyard Pishing; Private Residence, Talking Rock, Pickens County, North Georgia, USA
Date: 2012.10.04; Pleasant day with some Sun
Camera: Kodak Z740 Zoom

In this third of 3 pics taken in a series, a male Northern Cardinal (Cardinalis cardinalis, NOCA) appears to have now resigned himself to standing in line and waiting for a Fall migrating juvenile male Rose-breasted Grosbeak (Pheucticus ludovicianus, RBGR) to finish up eating on HIS PLATFORM FEEDER. This is about the first time I think I’ve ever seen any of the male Cardinals stand down against any of the other birds. In fact there’s a different series of four images where the Cardinal is eating and the immature Gray Catbird (Dumetella carolinensis, GRCA) involved is the one standing at bay instead.
