Sunday Started Out So Sunny.....
…..and I had the best luck of being taken outside on the deck! I was so excited & was dancing back & forth!! I guess Miss Pico would call it a "happy dance" because I was extremely HAPPY to be outside! Mom was sitting under that Japanese Maple that is so B.I.G with burgundy leaves! Just the same color as my tail feathers! Nice that we can coordinate together for maximum sunning. I was looking forward to seeing my little hummingbird friend! Mom even allowed me to have a cut rose so I could entice her over for a peek at me! She also set another hummingbird feeder to hang off the maple's smaller limbs close to my cage! Ahhh….it should have been longer that I got to be outside but Mom's mate lit a pile of downed limbs, trees, and some stumps on fire!! It was down wind from us, but on occasion, Mom could smell it & was worried about that. I gave her a sign that I was distressed by starting to quiver & tremble. Then Mom looked at me in alarm because I was now panting with my beak open & my tongue sticking out!! Mom doesn't know if it was the heat, which was about 80 to 85 degrees out there or was it the smoke which wasn't a lot. You couldn't see it but you could smell it!! Mom dropped everything & brought me in as fast as she could push that cage. She gave me cool fresh water which I immediately went to drink. Mom soon took me out of my cage and I let her handle me & scritches, I couldn't get enough of….I was feeling better after about 10 minutes. Talk about ruining a good day!

Mom's mate went to the Aquatics Center but Mom stayed with me to watch me close for a long while. I was feeling better when I flew on over to the window to watch the hummingbirds, looking for my little ladybird friend! I peeped a lot which is my way of telling Mom I was happy & feeling better. She brought out these new, wonderful things I get to eat when
it gets warmer. They're red with tiny seeds on the outside of them. Strawberries is what Mom calls them. She cut up some of them because one berry was bigger than my head!!! She also had some fresh cantaloupe & put them together & I ate them all! That was a fairly good reason to be back inside. Before we had been sitting there for 30 minutes, the
rain came with the winds blowing really hard!! I watched Mom's mate's fire get rained on but the fire was SO HOT it kept burning even in the rain!! In fact, it's rained off & on since then, and that fire is still burning!! I won't be going outside with that going on ever again!! Mom laid down the law!

Hope you've had a great weekend & have a restful night! Hugs to all, SamIAm
