Hello from Stonehenge and a brain damaged bird!!

Hi,
My name is Kate and my youngest daughter (17yo) and I are owned by 2yo Indian Ringneck called Buddy. About 5 months ago we had a disaster and Buddy unfortunately was hit by a car........head on.......and survived! We nursed him back to what he is now.........lol. He has mood swings, he can vicious beyond belief but then he can hilarious and ask for kisses (because that is THE amount of affection were going to get out of him). Hes lost all his vocabulary but is just learning a few words but........he whistles a mean tune. He can do, the Adams family, ŵe wish you a merry Christmas, Im forever blowing bubbles and were deciding what to do next. To listen to him telling the dogs off in his mumbled way is a treat and when he says sit, they do. For all his foibles to hear him half whistle/talk hey Kate, what ya doing never gets old.....lol.

If any one is around and can help with his speech, that would be amazing. Hes tending to whistle at me more than speak.

He has free flight of the house all day because Im home all day but we cant move his stands or perches around too much as he doesnt have very much.

I make him sound like such a lost cause but we nick name him The Blue Bomber because he does nothing slowly.......lol. X

Hi Kate and a warm welcome to you from all the Staff and Moderators.

I'm sure you will enjoy it here and I look forward to hearing your news.

Please note, though, that this is a site for wild birds not pets and captive ones.

Oh Lordy!!! Does it count that I have that I have 2 Campbell’s running round the back garden..... lol. One who’s a very beautiful dark female called ezmerelda and a hysterical white one called George who’s a bit more like a curveball. Literally! As he grew grew, he grew with a curve in his spine for some reason. If I can catch him keeping still I’ll take some photo’s....lol.

I also live on the edge of Salisbury plains and walk my dogs up there. We’ve rescued a few birds over the 20-something years we’ve lived here. I’ll see if I can get some pics of the BoP. I don’t tend stay to the main areas that people walk. I tend to go right off the beaten track. If I’m still off the mark, I will bow out gracefully. X
