Each of my birds has about a million nicknames. Lately I've been referring to them collectively as cooties.

Of course I refer to all of them as "the boys". The budgies are exclusively "speckies".

Here's one frequently-used nickname for each of my birds. Some of them are not terribly imaginative lol:

Vlad: Captain Vleeo
Mims: Mimsy Poo
Shodu: Miss Dudu
Buster: Buzzolo
Squeebis: Squeebitaboo
Henry: Ennui (that's French, pronounced on-WEE)
Teela: Neferteetee
Priscilla: Prissy Pru (her unofficial second name is Prudence)
Pip: Pippy Pooper
Ladybug: Pearlie
Elvis: The King
Azazel: Zazu
Snowy: Snosephine (looks weird in print but rhymes with Josephine)

Might I add, I enunciate the name 'Specky.' I sort say it in the most obnoxious voice I can, with a long draw. It sounds like "Spea-ck" but really focused and draw out on the "ea" sound. Hard to explain.
