    Heres my quilt inspector...my bird. I laid these out on the floor last night and I was in the kitchen just now and heard him chirping softly, so I got up to see what he was doing (he has this cut up hand towel, its his "friend" and he gets "friendly" with it, if you know what I mean). Anyway, he was walking around, checking the quality..haha. He isnt locked in his cage, the door is always open except for at night. He has learned how to climb up and down the base of his cage and rarely flys and wanders around all the time. Every time Im in the kitchen sewing..here he comes, waddling in here to see what Im doing. I had to show you my unusual guy!

    Looking good

    How cute! We have one too. I just love cockatiels! We have a girl her name is Snickers or Miss Snick. She is the first one we've had out of several that has learned to talk. I can't let her near my sewing tho as the dogs are there and I don't trust one of them not to eat her. Mollie is a bird dog!

    Does he pick out certain colors? I don't know do birds see differant colors?

    Does he have his preferences for color other than his hand towel?

    Cute pictures. Love when we can be entertained by our pets.

    Your little quilt inspector is charming....looks very serious about his work. I love Cockatiels, had two in my life...Ricki and Chilli, both gone now, but much loved little guys.

    I used to have one of those, named PJ.. he would "help" me sew.. heard him muttering away one day when I was pinning down a pattern and looked back to find him very carefully pulling out each pin I had carefully put in. And he too was an "amorous" fella.. but he was in love with my brass french phone.. boy did he get ticked off when it would ring and I'd pick it up and talk.. :shock: :shock:

    Your bird was so cute, I had to send the link to this thread to my hubby, who has an African Grey Parrot, named Howard. My hubby's response? "You would have a cow if Howard starting walking around on one of your quilts ;-) Birds do leave little gifts behind." LOL - he is right! Howard's cage sits rights next to my cutting/pressing table, so he watches me pretty closely. So, far, everything has been out of his reach, and he really doesn't like to get off his cage too often (keeping my fingers crossed).
