Hello Cookie~
I hope you are having a great day! I'm still flying around with blogs to help Muffin become our Queen! I know she appreciates every single vote she gets! Mom's first bird was a parakeet named Bobbie! She was green like me!
Sometimes it's just harder for some parronts to get so many blogs out! I have to tell you that before mom and I joined BC, mom had no idea about c/p! She couldn't even upload a picture! Sad, isn't it? Thank goodness for the skin brother and dad or I'd still have a page with only one picture on it!
Enjoy the day!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar

Today's Fact about Parakeets is a focus on the only parrot that was ever native to the United States.
The bird was called the Carolina Parakeet and lived on the East Coast, from the north all the way down to Florida.
They liked to live in tree trunks so you would find them in the forest. They ate seeds from the plants around them, bugs and fruit when they could find it.
They grew to be about 13" long and were believed to be poisonous since any cat that ate one died!
ROCK ON CAROLINA PARAKEET! hehehehe
Their love of fruit and their beautiful orange, yellow and green feathers proved to be part of the reason they are now extinct. Farmers would kill them because they would go after the fruit. The flock would always return to their home, even though flockmates had been killed so it made it easy for the farmers to kill the entire flock. Ladies of the time wanted the feathers for hats! They also believe that some of them contracted a chicken disease.
The last wild Carolina Parakeet died in 1904. The last captive Carolina Parakeet died at the Cincinnati Zoo in 1918. His name was Incas.
The picture in my gallery is a stuffed bird but at least we know what they looked like!

Please vote for Muffin #203943 everyday this month!
Thank You!
