princess nagger has taken to her new pet Cockatiel, Nigel, inimitably. She's had him out of his cage every day, playing with him, having him hang out on her scooter or any handy chair or stool, while she puts on what she calls a ‘Bird Show', spouting off like a circus master.
She's already got the little guy tame and is determined to teach him to do tricks. That will take time, but in the meantime, she's having fun (and hopefully he is, too):
She even got her friends in on the Bird Show act on Saturday:
Do you have any special requests on any particular tricks you'd like to see the Princess Nagger teach Nigel?

Love his name!! She should teach him to dance, bob his head to music! That would be cute!

Too bad you can’t convince her that teaching him to sit perfectly quiet, without speaking (and maybe to do his homework) would be a very special trick, one worthy of her great bird-training skillz!
I had a Cockatiel while I was growing up…we taught him to wolf whistle at me, my mother, and my sister every morning when we came downstairs! 😉
We used to have one named Henry and he would spit seeds in wet hair – shower, pool, rain…didn’t matter. It was a pretty cool trick!
What a cool pet. Definitely more entertaining than the sleepy goldfish my mom used to get for us!
I was about the same age when we got a bird…I loved it! Such special memories!
That’s so cool..having a cockatoo as a pet.. my kids don’t have pets as yet.. maybe when they get older we may consider one.
Nice to meet Nigel. I love birds and we had finches, pigeons, parakeets and cockatiels when the kids were younger. I miss the sweet singing and lovely noise… enjoy!
How fun! What a gorgeous bird!
How cool! My kid would LOVE one!
Thanks for stopping by! And I miss having a bird in the home! Looks like yours is well loved!
haha A bird show. Too cute 😀
how fun is that!!!
Looks like she is having a blast with her new friend!
How fun. We used to have a bird, but now have a cat and dog.
I don’t know. I never could teach my birds anything. Not even to stop landing on the cats head! :0
What a pretty birdie! 🙂
Oh wow, this is so cool! I bet her friend enjoyed doing this show wiith your daughter!
Thanks for linking up!
He’s a sweetie! They look so cute together. Pets are such wonderful companions for kids and teach them so much.
Tell the Princess we love her new bird!

I love how brave, yet tender she looks with her new friend…so sweet that her friends joined in!
She is quite the entertainer.
We had cockatiels growing up as well. Awways liked to fly up and sit on the curtain rods. I can still remember what their cage smelled like. eww. ha. Have a great week!
One day I’m gonna have to tell you about the budgies I had 🙂
How sweet! I love her bird shows! My son wants a pet bird but I just know that the second our heads are turned the dog will eat the bird.
I think she has a future at Busch Gardens! She needs to take that show on the road and start earning keep around there. 😀
Thanks for stopping by Modern Style Mama. It looks like he is keeping her entertained and very happy. I look forward to seeing his new tricks. How about a flip?!
When I was a little girl, I had a cockatiel named Keekee. He was an awesome pet. He loved to take showers and eat cheerios right out of the bowl. You’ll find that the bird will begin imitating familiar sounds in your home. For us, it was the microwave beeps, the beeps after the last message on the answering machine, the doorbell. When we walked in the door, he’d say “Whatcha doin’?”. When anyone walked past the cage, he’d give a catcall-type whistle. They’re fun birds. I hope you enjoy!
Practice for any future boyfriends 😉
How cute!! Sounds like an awesome pet to have.
adorable girl and bird…we had a parrot growing up. Was a fun pet till I had to clean the bird cage…so messy!!!
I’ve always wanted a pet bird! But then I realized how much a mess they make. I’ve settled for a bird feeder in the backyard. It looks like your little one is great at taking care of her pet!
Oh my gosh, very cool. I’m not a big animal person but am always in awe of people who are so comfortable with them. How neat for your daughter.
She’s an ambitious girl! We had a cockatiel once … but we gave it away because when we let it out of its cage, it would dive-bomb my head. No birds for us!
I love that she is already trying to train Nigel! =)
There is nothing better than your very own pet.
Cool pet! Love to have one too!
They look so happy together. I can’t wait to see the tricks.
Oh how cool!
how neat is that. are they the kind that can talk? maybe soon she can teach him to answer the phone….thanks for dropping by Cool Bean mommas =)
Cool pet to have. Looks like a lot of fun. I like his name too 🙂
Teach him how to dance!
Woah, a bird. He is pretty! When PN teaches him tricks, are they going to do a traveling road show?
I’m impressed that she has managed to look after the Cockatiel daily. Usually kids that age get bored with a new pet after a week or so. Train the birdie to go back to his cage when the doorbell rings. Trust me that’s a good idea.
What great photos and what a beautiful bird.
I’m sure she will have no time teaching Nigel to do tricks if she already has him sitting on her finger & shoulder like that.
Cute pics! Hope she’s has success trying to teach him tricks!
