I adopted Solo from a lady who was worried he was too vocal for her apartment. I'm not sure how old he is, but he was apparently fed a horrible diet (Think Doritos) before that lady took him in.. Awards

  Hi Solo
Punkin here. You are so gorgeous! So you're vocal eh? Always wondered what your personalities were like. You as vocal as a tiel or sun conure?
I've only got 2 more vote days. Hope you are having a great weekend.

Don't think I've ever heard of this one:
Dame's Rocket (Hesperis matronalis) - Also called Sweet Rocket or Dame's Violet. This plant is often mistaken for Phlox. Phlox has five petals, Dame's Rocket has just four. The flowers, which resemble phlox, are deep lavender, and sometimes pink to white. The plant is part of the mustard family, which also includes radishes, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, and, mustard. The plant and flowers are edible, but fairly bitter. The flowers are attractive added to green salads. The young leaves can also be added to your salad greens (for culinary purposes, the leaves should be picked before the plant flowers). The seed can also be sprouted and added to salads. NOTE: It is not the same variety as the herb commonly called Rocket, which is used as a green in salads.

Artichoke (Cynara scolymus) - The artichoke is considered a flower in which the leaves of the flower are eaten and the choke or thistle part is discarded.

Squash Blossoms (Curcubita pepo) - Squash and pumpkin blossoms are edible and taste mildly of raw squash. Prepare the blossoms by washing and trimming the stems and remove the stamens. Squash blossoms are usually taken off the male plant, which only provides pollen for the female.

Come visit me, Shaggy--2010-2013, Ipo, Sidney ~~ALWAYS IN MY HEART~~6/1996-2/2013, Oatie Odette *Thank you for the honor 11/27/13, Sophie O'Too, Pimer--Thanks you all, Jules, Punkin *My Dearest Little One--5/23/03 to 9/16/13* & Makana *I am honored as BOTD 10-17-14* Thank You.

  Solo, You have such beautiful colors, your mum must be looking after you very well. I had really dull feathers and my skin was all dry. Mum took me to the doctor and i fluffed up my feathers and flapped my wings to show him whos the boss! Then i bit mums finger and told her shes "very nawty!" for taking me there. Mum gives me some vitamins and now my feathers are silky and my skin is soft. P.S. Thanks for visiting me the other day. Fistik the Eclectus.

Come visit me, Fistik.

  `Ü´ SO-oo-oo … It would seem …
… that most everybirdy would like to SEE the sketch that Rio Feather Duster drew of Ruby Francesca Begonia in the sitting room of Suite B-52/56 aboard Titanic. ~~ Well, after a great deal of urging, plying, pressuring, promoting, cajoling, coaxing, beseeching, and finally begging, **Ruby draws in a fresh supply of air** Momma has consented to allowing Mr Rio’s work of art to be posted on my page. H-o-w-e-v-e-r … you will need to take the journey to the very bottom of the page to view his masterpiece, in my Photo Gallery there. (Momma seems to think that it may take some time, if indeed ever, before Daddy will find it there!) ~~ I have been having the time of my life aboard Titanic, meeting Mr Rio Feather Duster, finding true love and romance, and simply being together with him for oodles of time! Although, to be truthful Mr Solo, by now I can barely wait until our adventure is concluded and I may return home, to my very own page, and notes from my very own featheriends, so I can get back to visiting with each and every one parrotsonally! But that will have to wait, for a short time yet anyway. Even I-I-I do not know where this adventure will lead. Only ‘The Momma’ knows for sure! ~~ Remember, if you have not experienced the entire adventure with us as it has unfolded (or if you desire to relive any portion of it), Momma has typed instructions in the area of my page where “My motto:” is, to direct you to the BirdChannel Forums, where she has also posted each chapter of the story we have already lived through. ~~ I can now promise you though that the end of this adventure will be only a beginning for My Mr Rio ® and I. You may need to forgive us however, if we do not include y’all as intimately as we have thus far in our continuing adventures! I will take my leave for today then, Mr Solo, depositing a Vote of Gratitude for your company on this adventure. And I shall be ‘round again soon with the concluding chapters. Toutes alors, mon ami [Until then, My Featheriend] ...`Ü´ ♥’s ®

Come visit me, `Ü´ Ruby Francesca Begonia.

  `Ü´ Greetings, Mr Solo!
It seems as though forEVER and A DAY has passed since My Mr Rio ® [AKA Rio Feather Duster] handed me `Ü´ [AKA Ruby Francesca Begonia] the note that said, “Make it count. Meet me at the clock.” Well GLORY BE! Was this GRITS Girl surely surprised later that evening to see so many BirdChannel Featheriends gathered on Titanic’s main staircase with My Mr Rio standing at the very top, next to the clock, of course! All in attendance for the “Feel the Love on the BirdChannel” Valentines’ Dance, hosted by our very own Mr Djimo Beaumont Teasdale and HIS very own Miss CoCoPuff. A good time was most definitely had by all!!! ~~ Then the very next thing I know, on Monday morning, Mr Rio is telling everybirdy, “® Rio’s ♥ beats 4 Ruby `Ü´ Proud of MY Girl!” Well, My Dearest Mr Rio, I am very proud of YOU as well! As I’ve told you… “I have long counted myself as holding the honor or Bird of YOUR Week. That you would step aside from the coveted honor of BirdChannel Bird of the Week in order to make the way for my receiving it exceeds this BirdGirl’s ability to comprehend!” For that reason, My Darling Mr Rio, I am not wearing a crown this week, but the “Heart of the BirdChannel” necklace, an icon of the Titanic story, to acknowledge and honor you throughout this week as well. ~~ And OF COURSE, I cannot be spending this week in a castle somewhere. We Are Aboard TITANIC! And the Adventure continues! ~~ Please be reminded, Mr Solo, that Momma has created a Topic Blog in the BirdChannel Forums… “For all our Dearest Featheriends, if you are just joining our Titanic Adventure and would like to see how it all came about and all that has transpired since our embarking on it, or if you would like to see The Story in its entirety to the present, you may visit the BirdChannel’s ‘Bird Community’. [Link on the left of any BirdChannel page.] Once there, click on ‘Log In to the Forums’. [Next to the picture of those two lovely canaries, in the box tabbed ‘Bird Message Board’, located in the middle of the page as it comes up.] In the second box with bright green and yellow stripes at the top on that page, look for the fifth topic, ‘Pictures of Your Birds” and click on that. Look for ‘Ruby and Rio’s Titanic Adventure’. And once you click on that title…VOILA! You will find every little detail of our adventure and how it came about. ~~ We shall be weighing anchor on the morrow. Leaving you with a Vote of Anticipation. Toutes alors, mon amie...`Ü´ ♥’s ® [Until then, My Featheriend]

Come visit me, `Ü´ Ruby Francesca Begonia.

  `Ü´ Greetings, Mr Solo!
I am indeed honoured! And all the more so that your flock would come all the way from the Kootenays region to visit me!! My gracious, you are a long way away from my home. I had Momma check for me and we are, at the very least, 1800 miles from each other! Momma also showed me a picture of Lake Kootenay. Oh my, it IS lovely. Would you share with me, Mr Solo, eggsactly what part of the Kootenay region do you live in? I am thinking that you must be in the middle of some VERY COLD weather right now where you live. I am originally from Charleston, South Carolina. (At least that is where Momma and Daddy found me.) And I am very proud to count myself what is called a GRITS girl...a Girl Raised In The South. Ask your momma if she knows what that is. ~~ Momma and I do not know how to tell you how very much it means to the both of us that I have been honored as a Bird of the Week, here where we feel like flockily, on the BirdChannel. Words are so totally inadequate. **Ruby now whispering, so that her Momma will not overhear** Momma has long yearned for me to be as loved and revered here in the bird pages as was my Rainbow Bridge Fister, Rosalie Hale Bopp. I can only believe that it is because of her (Miss Rosalie) that I now have so very many wonderful featheriends who would be so kind and accepting as to grace me with the same honor and recognition as she once held. I dedicate this award to her memory, as well as to My Mr Rio ®, without whose love and generosity this might never have happened. Thank you so very much. ~~~~ Momma? …Do you need a Kleenex, Momma? ~~~~ Thank you for your Congratulations, Mr Solo. And thank you for being A New Featheriend. Please stop by again soon. Toutes alors, mon amie...`Ü´ ♥’s ® [Until then, My Featheriend]

Come visit me, `Ü´ Ruby Francesca Begonia.

Talk about beautiful flocks, yours is the most beautiful I've ever seen. I don't recognize Solo's species but he's a rainbow of beautiful colors. Someday I wish to get a CAG like yours, but the five birds I have now are perfect. One isn't pictured on my web page.. a little lovebird named Picker. If he lands on you, you'll know why he's so named... Pick, pick, pick, etc!
Hope to hear from you again!

  Hi All
Always appreciate a visit from friends. Yes, Ekkies are so much fun and we love to snuggle as well. Sometimes I get a little jealous of Figaro when mom holds him. When they pass by me when I'm on the tree stand, I reach forward every so gently and try to snip his tail!

I'm also a rosella but I'm a mixture of a crismon and golden mantle. My other sibling is an eclectus who likes to try and snip my tail off when I'm on mommy's shoulder and she walks by her. She hasn't yet ha ha! So here's a vote and come visit me soon!
