Camera Critters


This is my buddy, Spike. He is the nosiest little creature - he wants to go where you go and do what you do! He loves opera and rock and rock. He keeps tempo with the music by bobbing his head up and down. They call cockatiels the clowns of the bird world and boy, are they right!

He's 17 years old and most cockatiels live between 20-25 years. We're hoping to break the record!

Hi Gracie, Spike is a very handsome fellow! Cockatiels are great birds and super pets aren't they? I hope you break the record with Spike. He looks like a cool dude!

Spike is so cute. I didn't know cockatiels were considered clowns!

I've always thought it would be cool to have a bird.

I had no idea that cockatiels lived that long! I'm not sure I could live with the noise; my kids are noisy enough for me. *grin*
