    Hello, Tailfeathers!

    How are you? My name is Andrea, and I hail from the windy city of Chicago. As you can see from my signature, I own a cockatiel named Chibi (14 month old male cinnamon pearl pied whiteface) and a greencheek conure (7 month old male) named Horton. I also have a geriatric parakeet named Cloud (7 years old), but she really belongs to my parents.

    I am currently in my first year of medical school. My birdies keep me sane. My obsessions include cross-stitching and piano performance. I actually took piano as a major in college (along with microbiology). I like to stitch and watch TV in my free time, which I am afraid will dwindle away as medical school becomes more difficult. *sigh*

    I've always had birds in my life. When I was younger, I actually had 10 parakeets at once. Most of them lived full lives and were quite tame. One 'keet named PJ was especially robust and lived for exactly 15 years, although I suspect he suffered in the last few months of his life. It was only recently that I acquired a 'tiel and a greencheek, and they are amazing companions.

    Re: Hello, Tailfeathers!

    I forgot to mention my clear pied cockatiel, Chocobo. He's a gorgeous bird, but he's a bit of a bastard and not very friendly. Fortunately, he sings and talks very well, so it's fun to watch him sit on our portable perch and sing for hours. He refuses scratches or petting by anybody -- he will only perch on fingers.

    Unlike breeder-pampered Chibi and Horton, I "rescued" Chocobo (on a whim) from a poorly-kept grocery store. He had bald spots on his shoulders and neck from other 'tiels picking at his feathers. Fortunately with a diet of Harrison's and plenty of love by me, he's become a beautiful bird with no bald spots anywhere, and he is getting tamer bit by bit.

    There was a bit of confusion regarding his mutation, but with help from this board, I've come to the conclusion that he is a clear pied. He has very dark brown/black eyes, a completely white body, and a bit of yellow mottled on his head. He has a pink beak and feet. Most importantly, he has no bald spots!

    Here's a closeup of the pic in my signature:

    Oops, sorry, Dan!

    I forgot that Webshots usually takes about 30 minutes to show new pictures from time of edit/upload. It should be working now.

    Re: Hello, Tailfeathers!

    Hi Luna (and your 'keet Luna). I enjoy working on graphics, but only for fun. You can visit my websites (www.moonromance.net and www.shingetsu-pgsm.net) and sample some of my graphics.

    BTW Dan, my old username on the Tailfeathers board was also Moonieromance -- I would appreciate it if you could merge those old posts with this account. Thank you!
