Hi! My name is Sobe

I am a Green-Winged Macaw from Westminster, CO.

Handsome, and "He's My Special Boy".

8 years old   M

Green-Winged Macaw

Skippy Super Chunky Peanut Butter on Lafeber's Nutri-Berries.

In the Living Room Play Area;
In the Aviary Play Area;
In the Outside Porch Play Area;
In Dad's Office helping him work.

Not being the focus of everyone's attention when there are other Parrots around.

We understand one another!

Telling the other birds "No" when they are doing something that I know Dad does not like. Or telling Daddy "No" sometimes, when he says I have to go to bed. And finally, walking up the stairs to Daddy's office to let him know that we have a meeting (appointment) between he and I, and that I plan on ensuring he makes it. Even if I have to bring it to him! :).

If I talk about it long enough, and make my words clear so that the Hoomun Beans can understand them, invariably I will get MY point across..

  `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 Sobe, 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 Sobe, 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 Sobe!
Oh! My Goodness! OH! MY GosH!! OH!!! MY WORD, Mr Sobe!!! You simply can NOT know the joy with which my hearts leaps to make your acquaintance! YOU, My Dear Young Man, are frother to Miss Jadzia "DAX" who also introduced herself to my departed Rainbow Bridge Fister, Rosalie Hale Bopp, when Miss Rosalie was voted Bird of the Week in July of 2007. Neither Momma nor I could contain our joy at being called upon by your flockily again! This is a day of rejoicing INDEED. And You and I, Sir, look so much alike that Momma says we could be TWINS...SERIOUSLY. I'm sure your mom or dad can tell you, as you and I already well know, that not very many of us Green-Winged Macaws are really all that similar. It is simply amazing. You may not be able to discern that given the pictures currently displayed in the gallery at the bottom of my page. But, Momma says it is true, and I trust in her judgment. ~~ 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 Sobe. And thank you for being A New Featheriend. I leave you with my Vote of Appreciation. Please stop by again soon. Toutes alors, mon amie...`Ü´ ♥’s ® [Until then, My Featheriend]

Come visit me, `Ü´ Ruby Francesca Begonia.

  `Ü´ Greetings [Again], Mr Sobe!
Might I invite you to join an "Adventure In Progress"... 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 Sobe, 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.

  Hi Sobe
Looks like Santa made a trip early to you with that brand new sing you have there. Wish we could come up there and help you chew it up. Ooops to late you already have it half gone before I finish this letter. Beautiful bird, here's a vote from a distant cousin.
