Meet Quigley ~ The 2014 Bird of the Season & Our Mascot

May 22 179Congratulations to the ever so handsome Quigley! He will be our informal mascot of sorts this season, encouraging us all as Finch owners to become acquainted with the many beautiful parrot species we share the avian community with. He is a Rosy Bourke Parakeet (click here for more info about his species). Expect more stories and photos as the season progresses.

Isn’t he just so handsome and adorable?! I think so too! I could look at his gorgeous pictures all day. He is not only nice to look at, he’s also got a big heart and loves his people.

Here is how his owner (and momma) Kristy explains how he came to join her family: Quigley picked me as his own while picking up a hand-fed parakeet that wanted nothing to do with me. He loves to help me with everything, including decorating the Christmas tree each year by inspecting each ornament and making sure the branches are sturdy.

Visitors are greeted with a whistle and a kiss and evenings and weekends are full of cuddles, kisses and various tunes which he practices every day. Each morning we shower together and if extra rinse is needed jumps in with dad.

Quigley is never far behind and always arrives before we do, no matter where we are headed in the house.
