Mom and Dad had my bird parents and I hatched while my bird parents had me. Then my parronts took me away from them and started feedin me this yummy formula. They also cuddled me a lot and we fell in love with each other. I was supposed to be sold but Mom and Dad said "NO WAY! We can't sell her!" So they keeped me! I am Pipper's sister (from the next clutch)..

Hi! My name is Sunkist

I am an Orange-Winged Amazon from Spring Hill, FL.

Sunny K, K Bird, also Daddy says I'm a fireball.

7 years old   F

Orange-Winged Amazon

I just love to eat anything my parronts are eating but I really like yogurt.

Daddy's shoulder, play gym, top of my cage.

I don't like when I can't see Daddy but I can hear him!

Dad spoils me and gives me lots of attention. I love to play with Mommy and hear her yell "OW!" but she doesn't really like it.

I love to play on my back and kick my feet in the air. You just have to be careful cause sometimes I get carried away and start to nip..

I'm a fireball!.

  Hello!
Hello Sunkist!! That you for you message! Yes, in that picture I was doing the trick my momma taught me. It is called "Elliott, do Eagle"....it makes he laugh, so I do it to humor her. I am hoping my momma expands my flock and gets me a friend. She says that right now I am enough for her and she can't imagine loving another bird like she loves me. I AM quite the catch, so she may be right! Thank you agaon for your message. Keep in touch! I get to have my first fourth of july this year and my momma is makiing a bit of a production out of it...like the sound of those fireworks is something that actually EXCITES me...no thanks.

Come visit me, Elliott.

  Christmas Was Grand!
Sounds like yours was too. That's excellent. I'm the proud owner of a new foraging ball and a giant sisal boing. Well, the boing isn't actually mine- mine name wasn't on the box- but it is hung conveniently close to where I like to hang out so I take advantage to the view from the top of that twisted thing on occasion. I also got a couple of foot toys made of leather and beads and have thus far untied half of the first one. Mom keeps re-tying the beaks back on so I don't know if I'll ever have them all off at once. Guess I'm glad to be kept busy. Hope you can say the same, Sunkist.

Here's wishin' you a nice ending to the old year and a pleasant start to the new. A <ª)

  Hey, It's Alfie Again
It's great to hear from you! No need to apologize for any length of absence, especially when you've got a mom that's busy with college stuff. Thanks for sweet talkin' her into sharing the computer with you long enough to let me know all is well with you and your flock. Had a chuckle about your not liking the sparkling tree. It does seem like a rather odd thing to do; bring a tree into the house and put stuff all over it. I could be more amused by the whole process if I were allowed to play with the ornaments but with the "Just Look, Don't Touch' policy, it renders the tree rather boring, really. Pretty, yes, but what a wasted bunch of opportunities!
Your scroll-say toys sound awesome. Those shapes must be a nice thin size, easy for taking chunks out of. I like chunking wood. Makes a lovely mess on the floor which to me is an indication of a day well spent.
Please, tell your mom good luck with her school stuff. She's likely going to be getting a vacation here shortly? Bet you'll enjoy that, having her around a bit more for the holidays. In case I don't see you again before Christmas Day, Merry Christmas, Sunkist. A <ª)

  Hello Ms. Fireball!
What's happening in your stretch of the world? Here, I've got grey skies and melting snow, the typical appearance of the transition from fall to winter. Being a Florida girl yourself, I'm sure it's probably harder to tell when winter arrives in the south. How do you know, anyway? !! I'll bet it's when your northern friends start complaining about freezing cold temperatures.
Have your halls been decked with holly and other festive decorations in celebration of the Christmas holiday? I've got a fancy tree and lots of little twinkling lights here that tell me something special's going on. Lucky for me, the tree doesn't interest me. I fly right over it! Mom tells me that if I do happen to land on it to be prepared for the whole thing to fall over. I take it it's root system's not all that impressive. The macaw I share this home with has been under the tree a couple of times, something that gets my mom all excited. I guess the powercords under there would give him a shock he'd not soon forget, much less remember. That tree don't sound like anything I wanna spend time on.
Hope these days leading up to the 25th are joyful and triumphant. A <ª)

  Happy thanksgiving!
Here is a wonderful holliday recipe that I concocted today! Hope you and your flock enjoy!

Birdy Pumpkin Nut Puffs

Ingredients:
½ part flax seed
1 part oats (either rolled, whole or steel cut)
1 part shelled raw almonds (may toast if desired)
1 part shelled raw pecans (may toast if desired)
any other nut or grain you wish to add –perhaps cannabis seed or wheat berries
plain canned pumpkin
cinnaman and/or nutmeg and/or ground cloves (optional)


Equipment:
Mixing bowl
Spoon
Oven or microwave
Mini-muffin tin or paper plate
Oil for greasing tin


To make these I took the flax, oatmeal, almonds and pecans and processed them into a flour in my blender – then I took and added canned pumpkin until it was a paste. Then I dropped small dallops into my (greased!) muffin tin and cooked at (convection) 350’F for 7 minutes. Alternatively, you may add less pumpkin and roll into balls. Place the balls on a paper plate and microwave for about 2 minutes, or until they reach desired crunchiness.
For large birds you may opt to not initially grind up the ingredients, but just throw them all together, or only loosely chop them. I haven’t made it this way, as less is wasted by my birds if it is all together.

Optionally you may either add in or sprinkle on a small amount of cinnoman, nutmeg or ground cloves. I sprinkled those three alternately across my little “muffins”.

Serve to birdies slightly warm or cool as a “footheld” nutty holiday treat!

  Geez-Whiz, Sunkist~
Has it really been a month since I've flown by to say "hi"? That's pathetic!! Well, here I am!
So, how was the month of October for ya? I spent less and less time outdoors what with the decreases warm temperatures. There was one day there late in the month where the temps were in the high 60s and mom thought I might enjoy an hour or so in the sun. Oddly though I opted to sit in the SHADE... something mom couldn't quite understand. In truth, neither can I. The sun was warm, the shade was rather cool. Goofy me, I guess.
Now of course I'm spending all my time indoors and the bird room floor attests to that; it's constantly covered in bits of wood, paper, and plastic along with an array of feathers, dust and well, bird "art". It definitely has that "lived-in" look. *grin*

Hugs to you, Pretty Girl. — A <ª)

  Sunkist!
Finally! Some BC time for me. Thanks for stopping by the other day with your funny note. Congrats on the all the new words. Don'tcha just love to hear the parronts laughing themselves silly when something new rolls out of our beak. I know it's the highlight of my day if I can get a burst of laughter out of my mom over something antic or sound I conjure up. My vocab's not grown any since my arrival here but there's hope; the other day mom thought for sure I was giving the work "love" a genuine tryout. I know it would make her day if I could tell her I love her. I would think she can see it in my eyes when I get right up in her face and just gaze into her eyes. Why, just yesterday I let her kiss me on the beak- three times! That's progress, Baby. I've never liked anyone that close to my head in the past.
Did the summer fly by fast for you? It sure did for me. Jenny was able to visit my home a number of times. In fact, for a while there, Wednesday was play-day with the neighbor kids! Somedays she would come sit right beside me, others she would sit across from me and just tease me with her pretty smile. The weather is a bit cooler now and my mom's been unusually busy so there's not been a visit lately. Maybe we'll be able to get one or two more in before the backyard socializing is over for the year. I hope your fall days are beautiful ones. Thanks again for coming by, Sunkist. — A<ª)
