The neighbor had a grey pair of birds and they of course mated and had 9 eggs. When hatched, I picked one of the Lutino babies out..

  Hi Cydney
Sounds like the baby B/G is a tad loud LOL.
Oh woe is me what a day I had. Yep that dreaded groom though mine only consists of a beak and nail trim it is still not good. Not only that but I just had this done at the vets a month ago but mom said he didn’t get them short enough and holding me was painful to her hands and shoulder. I heard mom on the phone talking to Cindy but didn’t know it was about me!! Pretty soon mom and I were going down the steps and I was in my wingabago and on our way. Oh I had lots to say and talk about…I love going in the car. There was lots of construction of course along the way. Finally we were at c&b warehouse and then wrapped in that dreaded towel and the dirty deed done to my talons and beak! Mom did buy me a nice toy something like Grey Birds mom did with coffee filters. I was quiet on the way home and we stopped at skin sis but I didn’t have anything to say there either., Then the silent ride home and once on my condo I went right in and got on my perch and the silent treatment to mom again. Maybe I will forgive her tomorrow. Right now I am tired and just want to sleep! “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. Its learning to dance in the rain.” Left a vote for you my friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Cydney and flock,
Thank you for letting me be Queen Angel for today. I sure do like all the new stuff at the Castle. And those Mac nut trees we grew, boy they're growing faster than weeds! How cool is that? :)

There's a luau going on tonight at the Castle along with King Grey Bird so come on over.

We'll have all the Hawaiian favorites including the sticky rice! :)

Lots of local sweets like Leonard's malasadas and those purple poi donuts too.

Mom is making a ton of pineapple cake so we will be happy campers. And as the night goes on dad is doing the fireworks thing at 8 pm and we'll also have the bonfire too.

Marshmallows and smores galore. Come and stuff yourself and then go on a diet the next day. That's what we'll be doing. :)

Dancing doing the disco duck and other favorite songs will be playing and Laka will also be doing the hula too. We can all dance along with her. Grass skirts will be provided so no worries. :)

A big Mahalo for letting me be Queen for the day. :)

Love, hugs and a vote for you.

Angel Sallykins Queen for the day. :)

Come visit me, Angel Sallykins with her pretty red hat on, Angel Pookie says on guard you scoundrel !!! & Laka with her pink Lehua flower hat on.

  Hi Cydney
Happy Belated birthday to your mom!! How sweet of your moms brother to get her a sun conure for her birthday and just what she has wanted too.
Last night we were late getting on and tried to do my blogs but it just kept circling and only got one done and took us 15 minutes to do that one so we had to quit. Sorry about that and here is last nights blog. I don’t know about you but mom says I get more wound up in the afternoon. Today I kept flying over to the kitchen divider and trying to get into a bag of pretzels that mom has close by. Mom would tell me “go home” and I would but not for long and be back at the pretzels again. This went on for a good 15 minutes and then I knocked some of moms knick knacks down the steps to show her I was upset. Mom picked them up and put them back and told me again to go home. I did but was not happy. I yelled at mom and she said that wasn’t nice and as soon as I could I flew back over and promptly threw the knick knacks down the steps again. This time mom made me go in the condo for a while. I was not happy but after I cooled down and mom left me out again I figured those pretzels were not worth all that grief! I am sure tomorrow I will try again though. “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. Its learning to dance in the rain.” Left a vote for you my friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

We have another rainy and overcast day, it is getting very old! For the most part all of dad's meeting went well, but he will need to adjust some of his meds, especially the diuretics, the smaller amount was causing excess water retention and edema! Another appointment today and our nurse comes tomorrow, she is a welcome guest, always so pleasant and caring! Dad plans to rest as much as possible today, they ran him ragged yesterday! Have a great ToosDay, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow BC friends...

  Hello Cydney~
I hope you had a great day! I didn't think I was going to get any notes done today at all! We had tons to do and mom still has a few more things to do but she is going to wait until we are all in bed! I don't know why? I thought all the screaming I did was a real help.
The complex is doing a HUD inspection tomorrow. I guess they are trying to get certified so they can rent to low income people and get subsidized by the government. I imagine they lost a lot of people when they raised the rent so high. They could have just lowered it and maybe people wouldn't have moved.
We had to clean up the house and the storage room. Dad had lots of junk in there and it took a while. There is still stuff to do but like I said, mom is waiting for us to go to bed.
The construction guys showed up a little while ago. They are blocking off the right 2 lanes on my side of the street. Guess it's going to be another noisy night. They did take a 3 day weekend so I am thankful for that. I think they will be done in a few more days.
Have a lovely evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love ya ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Cydney
Mom would do it if it were a day trip but to go and spend two nights isnt doable.
Mom knew what she had in that purse so had things filed in a cabinet so just had to sit and cancel things then.
Today was another cool cloudy day here in the burg. At least it was as cold and dreary as it was yesterday. Mom did a few things around here this morning and then she got ready to go for a much needed hair cut. I usually get a bath on Friday but mom said it was a bit too cold today so maybe tomorrow I will get one. Mom said she will blow dry me if its still cold. I miss my sun baths though and they sure help my feathers a lot. I start looking pretty bad by the end of winter cause I like to chew off my feathers. I just take the tips of the feather off and leave some and mom says I feel like a porcupine . There are some new ones coming in now and I am not chewing them off as much now either. I wonder if this hair cut will keep mom from flying away so much!! “A memory last forever never does it die. True friends stay together and never say goodbye.” Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Cydney
Mom remembers when Aunt Rose and Uncle Rich and Aunt Tanya and your parronts all went to Parrot Palooza together too.
Mom hates to leave me for long and would have to stay all night at least one night and that is a long trip to NJ too.
Mom didn’t have a very good day yesterday. She decided to go to the fruit stand after washing up the sheets and hanging them out and some house cleaning. Well her wallet was missing. Mom called Giant Eagle since that is where she used it last. They didn’t have it. Then she tore the car apart inside and the trunk and no wallet. She started calling to cancel her cards and get new ones then. She looked in the car again and all the rooms in the house. Then she had to go to the bank so she stopped at the fruit stand and got a few things too. She came home and took the sheets off the line and put stuff away and looked some more. She got supper and did dishes and cleaned up and then started to clean my condo and play gym. Then it hit her!! Yep she took her wallet along to vote and left it in dads truck. She ran out to get it and there it was. Now she has to wait on all the new cards to come and then do what she has to do with them too. Wow what a day. Mom looked pretty tired tonight. “A memory last forever never does it die. True friends stay together and never say goodbye.” Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hello Cydney~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! I can't believe I'm BOTD! I am so excited and so grateful to all my friends here. It is still such an honor to be picked from all the awesome birds here to have a day in the spotlight!
We have had a crazy morning already! It was pretty loud last night since they were paving the road across the street. Who knew that paving included pounding? I didn't! It was the stream roller I guess! Mom cranked the radio up but you could still feel a bit of shaking. I squawked a few times and Merlin spent most of the night in the window watching it all! McKenzie slept through it all!! They were done by 4 am but I think I'll be grabbing a nap later!
We have a wetland that runs the length of the complex. It is fenced in but it's just a plank fence and not totally to the ground. When mom was walking McKenzie this morning, McKenzie stuck her head under the fence that encloses the wetland and pulled out a Mole! Thank goodness mom has been working on "drop" with her because when mom screamed, she dropped it! The poor thing was flailing around and so scared! McKenzie knew she had done something bad cause she flattened out on the walkway and looked guiltily at mom!
Mom locked McKenzie in the car and grabbed the car towel. She picked up the little Mole and checked him out. Thankfully he wasn't hurt! He kept flailing and growled at mom! Mom crawled against the fence and found his hole and set him down there. He dug a little and then popped back down in the hole. Mom told McKenzie that there will be no hunting allowed! We read later on that coyotes dig up moles for food. Dad thinks any kind of dog would do it and that is probably true. Obviously there will be no more walking anywhere near the fence! I don't think moms heart could take another incident like that!hahahahaha She was so scared that McKenzie had killed it.
Come on over to the castle today! Mikey and Kacey have had Lizzy and Chipper prepare a wonderful luncheon for us! I can't wait to see you!!!
Enjoy your day!

  Hi Cydney
I hope that fire is more under control today; 40% is less than half! Maybe you'll get more rain, which will help.
I had another visit with Dr. Pleban yesterday afternoon, and she says I'm healing quite nicely. All my meds are done, and she said I don't need any more. I have several feathers growing in, the scab on the inside of my leg is gone, and the big one on the outside is looking good. She says everything is moving right along. She left my little turtleneck collar on, and wants to see me next week. She made the appointment, to make sure her staff knows that when she says one week, that's what she means.
My appointment yesterday was at 3:30, which put us in the middle of rush hour traffic again, but mom chose a different route home, so the trip home only took 40 minutes, not 80 like last week. Next week my appointment is 2:40, so we shouldn't hit any traffic there or back except for school buses.
Today it's raining hard out there, but of course the dogs still wanted a walk. It's funny, because they hide under the overhang on the deck when mom puts them out in the rain, but they'll walk on leads right out in the rain! Mom got wet, too, even though she was carrying an umbrella. It's a spring rain, though, so it will be good for the flowers. Temps are mid 50s, it feels like.
Mom is getting that laser treatment on her eyes today, we think. She doesn't know if he'll do both eyes today or not, but we're kind of hoping he does, just to get it over with.
I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of sunshine, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hello Cydney~
I hope you had a wonderful day! We did the chores we never got done yesterday. Kind of boring but mom put Minions on for me while she was cleaning the kitchen! I love those squeaky yellow guys!
McKenzie was a bit rowdy this afternoon. She thinks that the cat is going to play with her like another puppy would but we all know that is not going to happen. He sits and whacks at her and whines for mom to come pick him up. I think he is doing that on purpose to that mom will pick him up. He certainly could get up on something, like he usually does, but I think he just wants mom to rescue him!
The road construction is continuing at night. The trucks just stared showing up. Mom put the radio on a bit louder last night so we wouldn't have to listen to the beeping when the trucks back up. Mom was hoping they would be farther along at this point. They still have not paved across the street from us so maybe tonight. Then they will start tearing up our side of the street! The parts they have finished do look very nice and are really smooth to drive on!
I hope your evening is just wonderful! }

  Hi Cydney
I hope that fire stays far far away from you! I hope also that the rain helped the firefighters.
Today is my vet appointment, I hope she says I'm healing and maybe can take off the collar. If not, maybe next time. I have 2 new feathers that mom can see on my chest, but the rest is still bald. Anyone know how long it takes?
Mom had 2 tours this morning with first grades. They all wanted dinosaurs and friends, and both groups had booked a pterosaur time after their tour, so mom knows they will have a great time. One of the little guys kept trying to correct mom when she said pterosaur! He kept saying pterodactyl, so she finally told him that pterodactyl names one animal in the group, but pterosaur is the name for the whole group. He was very cute!
I hope your weather is better than ours today. It's 62 and cloudy, looks like rain any second. We are hoping the rain doesn't come until mom is back from the vet's office. I hope that you are getting lots of attention, cuddles and scritches today. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Cydney
Your mom is lucky to get to Parrot Palozza and meet some of the BC moms too. Mom hates to leave me plus the drive so far so she doesnt go to it.
This morning after mom got my breakfast and hers and dads she decided to go for groceries. It was raining but mom figured she would dodge the rain drops and get it over with. Dad was home so I didn’t have to go in my condo and stay so that was good. When mom got back and put stuff away her and dad went to vote. Then I did have to be in my condo but the good part was its close by and they weren’t gone long. After they got back mom took me out for a sunbath and just as we got out there the sun vanished and it got cloudy and windy so we came back in the house so no sunbath today. We will see what tomorrow brings if I get a sun bath or not then,. “A memory last forever never does it die. True friends stay together and never say goodbye.” Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Cydney
Yep, spring and summer are the busiest times of the year at the center. Mom felt lucky that nobody else came in before she finished the paperwork for the intakes she did. She fielded at least 4 raccoon calls, a bunny call, and a bird call, too.
Today mom did the presentation of Hopi and ancient Egyptian animals for the new docent class. It was a little scary, because mom didn't find a lot of information on the Hopi animals, but she managed. She showed the class some of the things that lived or live today in the southwest, like jaguars, pronghorns, etc. She also stopped at the deer and elk cases, even though those particular deer and elk aren't from the southwest. They also stopped at the coyote.
Egypt was a lot easier to research and present. Mom presented the animals and the gods with whom they were associated. It was fun, because not only did they wander all over the second floor, looking at the African dioramas, they also got to see the dung beetles from the resource room.
On the third floor, mom did Bird Hall, but told them they were doing both Egyptian and Hopi, so they had to keep separate notes for them. They paid particular attention to vultures and falcons for Egypt, golden eagles for Hopi, then further down the hall, they stopped at the turkey (Hopi raise wild ones for food), quail, ibis, and a few others. The last 2 stops were in the cultural halls. Mom showed them the mummified animals in Egypt, and where to see the golden eagle in the Hopi area. All in all, it took the full 2 hours which mom didn't expect, but they seemed to get a lot out of it.
On the way home, mom stopped at Trader Joe's (always a mistake when you are hungry), and picked up some beet hummus, Mediterranean hummus, curried chicken salad, sushi, well, you get the picture. She went in there for broccoli and blueberries for us. Oh yes, she got them, too.
That meant coming straight home, though, because it's warm out and some of the things she bought had to be frozen or refrigerated. So she didn't stop to vote, but will go later, as she's not going to miss today's primary.
It rained here this morning, and apparently while mom was lecturing at the museum. It looks like it might rain again, but in between, the sun is really hot. It's in the mid 70s here. I hope you are having a great spring day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches, too. Hugs, Falco

  Hello Cydney~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!! I did not get many notes out yesterday just because we ran out of time! Actually, it's all moms fault since she fell asleep when she got home from work! Guess she was tired but it sure did put us behind! We managed to get the stuff done that needed to get done but it was time for her to go to bed after that! She only has one more night to work and then we get our weekend!
Really nothing exciting going on. Jennifer is not feeling well so McKenzie and I are trying to be quite so she can sleep! Merlin sleeps all day anyway so it's no big deal for him! I'm doing pretty good but McKenzie doesn't understand quiet yet.
I hope your day is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Cydney
Deer are a problem all over the state. People killed off their predators, so the herds are free to keep expanding.
Mom got back late from the center today. She went up about 15 minutes early, and started right away to do animal intakes. One couple brought in 3 bunnies in their nest (mom had been hit by a car), and while mom was doing the intake info on them, another lady came in with 7 baby possums. So, between answering the phone, and doing the paperwork, there went her advantage in being there a little early. Mom checked with Jess, one of the rehabilitators, to see how she could help, because Jess looked very stressed out. Jess told her she needed to stimulate and weigh all the baby bunnies and she was the only person there who knew how to do that. Mom said not true, I can help! So she stimulated about 24 baby bunnies to help them urinate and defecate, then weighed each one of them and marked the charts. It saved Jess a ton of stress and time.
After that, mom cleaned the squirrel porch, and prepared 2 cages out there for babies from the mammal nursery who are ready to go outside and see the world, although they're not ready for release yet. When she finished that, she cleaned the small flight aviary, where Martha the great horned owl is raising a young one. The baby has grown quite big, and was clacking its beak at mom, just like an owl should do. Martha is a great foster mom.
They had scheduled mom to feed raccoons at noon, but it was already 10 after, the raccoons' milk was not even warm yet, and mom was tired, so she told Jess she was leaving.
It sure was a long and busy morning. Now she's back with us, and as soon as she's done with our blogs and a shower, she will work on her presentation for the docents tomorrow. She will be doing Egyptian and Hopi animals. She is including reptiles in this presentation, because both groups are/were desert dwellers, so there are lots of reptiles there. Also, in Egypt, she has to include the dung beetles! She's not sure it will last for 2 hours, though. That's fine with her, of course.
Today is a bright, sunny day, in the 60s so far, which is normal. I hope you are having a great day, getting sunshine, and lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Cydney
This morning mom decided she would go to the bird show in Irwin. She called and asked the grands if any of them wanted to go with her. The grandson and the youngest grand daughter did. Mom picked them up on the way. The oldest one didn’t want to go cause the two others fight. Mom will take her by herself another time though. Cindy told mom that Aunt Arlene was looking for her but mom hunted for her and thought she might be in the show way down front but didn’t want to walk down there and find out it wasn’t her! Plus she would have to walk past and disrupt all those people in the show too. Mom hunted some more and then came back through where the show was and it was all done and never did see Aunt Arlene. Mom continued to look for Aunt Arlene and decided she must of left and they missed each other. Mom got some cooked foods that are ok for me and a cloth perch for in my outside condo and two leather type toys so that was what she bought home from the show. There was lots of people there though so a good turn out. There was lots of birds for sale and the one room was a very loud birds in there and one that really screeched and yelled loudly!! “Best friends are the ones you can do anything or nothing with and still have the best time.” Your best friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Cydney
We have that same problem with the deer eating everything. They love the hostas, day lilies, tulips, and lots of other things. Mom is hoping to see blooms on her peace rose this summer, as they ate all the buds all summer long last year.
It's a bit warmer today than it was yesterday. It's around 70 and sunny right now. Mom went to the bird show this morning, and it was pretty good. She bought some new sea grass mats with toys on them, some poop off, many other toys (of course), and a huge bag of fresh chop. The chop was being sold fresh to benefit a parrot rescue group, so mom was happy to contribute. The lady making it made an immense plastic bin full! She put in more things than mom cuts up every day, so we're going to try it with Maxine and the boys. Mom might give me some too, to see if I'll eat it.
She got to see 2 presentations at the bird show, one on how to make chop, and one about the new rescue in our area. They had lots of birds with them, including 2 adorable nandays and a galah that mom was really admiring. I have to say that she came home with lots of stuff, but no new birds. This place offers foster opportunities though, so she's thinking about that. There were the usual raffles going on, as well as a huge raffle for an outdoor aviary. Mom did not buy tickets for that one, though! She'd never get it put up outside.
When she left the show, she stopped at Moio's, a local Italian bakery, to take some goodies to Aunt Ginny who is recovering from pneumonia. Mom was her first company, although her adult kids have been with her every day and evening for the past 2 weeks. They had a nice visit, then mom came back here and divided the chop into some smaller containers for the freezer. It's supposed to be good frozen for 3 months. She is really hoping we'll eat it.
My vet called yesterday and changed my appointment to this week. She had wanted to see me in a week, but the front desk made the appointment for 2 weeks instead, due to availability (mom's and the vet's). So, I'm going in this Wednesday at 3:30, which means another trip in rush hour traffic to return home, but it's all good. Mom says as long as I'm getting better, that's what counts. We can sing in the car on the way home.
I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Have a great Sunday dear BC friends, and give our love to all in your happy peaceful home, see ya all tomorrow...
