TOP TEN in Pets are Us challenge: September Avatar ~ No Cats or Dogs

Popcorn our cockatiel knows his name and if I say popcorn he will always follow with pretty bird. That is how I caught his attention to get this picture….

I love being able to capture a moment in time with my camera. I take photos based on what I feel is beautiful, unique or silly. I have a great variety of photographs, from the details of a flower to landscapes, clouds and sky, mountains and more.

    Beautiful feathered friend, Jan! Excellent portrait!

  • Thanks Gene!! I can get some silly pictures with Popcorn… Now that our Jasper is with my daughter and her new husband…. I feel a bit more comfortable letting him out of his cage. Jasper was always so close to getting at him even when he was in the cage that I didn’t dare allow him out for long. I miss Jasper, but life around here is as tense with Jasper and the bird and Jasper always teasing and chasing our “Kitty” who is pretty much an old grandma and was afraid of Jasper’s playfulness. She is much more relaxed now too.

    That is a great shot. He looks just like my cockatiel named Sunny!!

  • I saw Sunny! He does look just like him… We got Popcorn when he still had his baby feathers.. they were white and yellow and my daughter thought he looked like popcorn. The name stuck even after his adult feathers came in and he no longer looked like popcorn. Thanks Ginny… sorry about the late reply… I somehow missed your comment! take care ~Jan ♥

    He’s a lovely looking bird and they certainly are great characters. However, I suspect this is shot indoors, so can’t accept it for Nude Pets if that is so.

  • oh! yes it is….. sorry…. I guess I need to read the rules again! Thanks for your kind way of letting me know I goofed!! Ü

    Isn’t he cute! I have one of these but mine has never mimicked my words, just whistles. I would love it if mine would talk. They are the sweetes birds…………….Barbara

  • I agree! We got him when he was a baby… pretty bird, popcorn, and kisses are the limits to his words… He is a wonderful pet… my favorite is that he will snuggle with his head against my chin and let me scratch his neck and rub his cheeks… he loves that. thanks for your comment Barbara!! ♥
