I was wanting an amazon for quite some time. I had to first convice my husband. When he finally said "go ahead" I went searching for breeders. I found one in Gainsville, Florida and he had two 4 month old just weaned baby orange wings. He sent pictures of both and I chose Sunny. Sunny was shipped to me on a plane on November 2005 (for my birthday).. Awards

Hi! My name is Sunny

I am an Orange-Winged Amazon from north chicago, IL.

cotito-coti, mi coto

11 years old   M

Orange-Winged Amazon

he loves to eat period, almost anything goes. He enjoys table food and sweet treats of course.

on his manzanita tree, on top of his cage, and on his cage porch; where the action is that's where he wants to be

He doesn't like sudden unpredictable hands approaching or moving near him. I don't like it when my sister Ray-Ray starts making her strange children noises, it gets me very agitated and loud.

My mom adores me. She loves playing with me, turn me on my back, kissing me, cuddle me, give me food by hand of what she's having. I love when mommy gives me showers...I flap my wings and I talk nonstop; I have lots of fun getting all wet. In the evenings I beg for scratches on my head, neck, chin and near my beak area. It feels good when she scratches underneath my wings also... mom helps me get the quills out when I'm molting :) My mom and I are a pretty bonded pair (pics of us are on the bottom of the page)

hanging upside down or on his back and wrestling with his toys at the same time.

If i see you eating it, then I must have some too. I will decide when and how you'll give me affection..

wow yeah I sure remember you guys nice to hear from you. Yeah us too been so busy thanks glad you like the beach pics and NO the sand was not hot after 4 pm we went there and mum only put me on sand for few min for pics. yeah I sure got alot of attention :) Amazing how many people have never seen a parrot like me hee hee. yeah we only live a 10 drive to the beach we sure are lucky. Mommy loves the ocean and has never lived too far from one she would go nuts if she did but lakes are nice too. Each has it's beauty. and yes have to be real careful when not groomed mommy does our grooming and makes sure we are done good before being out anywhere plus what you see in pics are us out for short minutes for pics we have travel cages and are in there after and mostly. thanks for the visit glad to hear you are well missed ya xoxoxo ZAZOO

Hi Friends, Cotton Ball here, We are getting aroung late today. Mom and Dad are home and I am playing in my new bathtub and mirror. Ellie and I are having fun. We stayed up late last night celebrating with Mom. Patrick helped her make his avitar this morning. He started playing the Coughing Game and Mom didn't notice so he coughed LOUD in her ear. When she said, "Poor sick baby, what a cough" Patrick yelled,"A cough drop would make it better." LOL Patrick told me he didn't know why Mom was shocked...she always says that to him when they play the game... hehe ... Well Fortune just wants to go on another trip.. he is still yelling bye bye and squawking at Mom today.. silly bird loves to travel. HERE IS A .....tiny kiss on your beak...the LIMERICK OF THE DAY IS POSTED ON PATRICK'S PAGE.

Hi, My name is SweetPepper and I am the campaign manager for my friend Beavis. Beavis is a 28yr old quaker who has a dream to be the next BOTW. He has tried before and lost, he was even beat out this past week by a fellow quaker. So I am campaigning extra hard this week for my friend and asking all my birdie friends to help by voting each and everyday. All you need to do is stop into his page each and everyday and kick that vote button off the top of his page, you don't even have to leave a blog each time. Help me in helping Beavis achieve his dream of becoming BOTW. Thank You , SweetPepper, campaign manager to BEAVIS FOR BOTW!

  Hello from Fortune, St. Patrick D' bird and Lonnie
Happy Lord's Day Everybirdie, Mommy just now stopped to take a breath and help us write to our friends. Daddy is not feeling well and Mommy went to church then cooked lunch for our skin sis and her three kids. It has been a great day. We (Lonnie and Ellie) watched while Fortune actually played with the skin grandkids...They were thrilled. Patrick made a huge circle flight path through the house and has been flying laps. hehe He found the new FIDS ( Slate and Mica ) Mommy is almost hysterical... She was trying to keep us all separated. Now all she can do is pray that they are not sick or we all will be sick. Mommy said to tell you PICS OF NEW FIDS on FORTUNE'S page. BABY ZEBRA 12 day)PIC is on PATRICKS page. VOTES 4 ALL our friends. Love and Kisses, Lonnie, St. Patrick and Fortune

  Hi from Lonnie
Good Morning Big Bird, Sunny, I just love the help I get on BC. Today, I decided to take Zeus advice. I think and just let Ellie build our nest herself. I love her to death and just want to help but she reminds me that for safety sake I cannot put material so close to the hole. She thinks the chicks will fall out. I guess she is right, but a man likes to look out the door when resting on his nest. Our teils, Ms.Skeeter and Mr. Wishbone have two eggs already and she is still laying. Beep and Peep the Zebras have 3 eggs and are expecting on January the 6th also. I guess all good things come to those who wait. I'll be patient with Ellie. Afterall, I can't lay the eggs. hehe she is the expert there. Well, got to fly...Here is a vote for you and your flock too. It is from all of us. Yes, Fortune has the Big Head.....Patrick and I love it for him though. Happy 2008 my friend. Lonnie

Hey Sunny - I thought I'd fly in a leave you a note! How are you? All is good we hope - it sure is it my house. Mom and me sure have a lot of fun together - especially since Sassy doesn't like her and Pepper just likes to sit by herself - hehehe - I get alot of attention and I'm such a ham. Pepper doesn't like me at all and she even tries to bite me! She and Sassy are friends but that's OK at least I get to listen to them act so silly with all the screaming Pepper does and Sassy yells back at her to shut up - those girls - they just don't get it do they! HAHAHAHAHA!

So here is a new vote just for you and I'll come back soon.

Hi Sunny,
How are you doing? I am ok, but mommy doesnt feel too well, she had oral surgery done this morning...thats
why we are so late getting our blogging done, she does a
little at a time, then rests....we were reading on Angel
page how your mommy comes home to eat lunch with you
Awww...that is so sweet of her, if your mommy doesnt mind me asking...what kind of work does she do? My mommy is home with me alot too, and I even get to go to work with her, she works and lives in the same place, she does home health care for adults with special needs
and I get to interact with her clients alot and of course they just love me...hahahee...I am one lucky and spoiled amazon...well Sunny sounds like you are getting
some good treats from your mommy:) hehe, Im still being picky as ever....mommys gonna try the birdy bread next week....mommy says to your mommy thanks for the suggestions, it worked with the yogurt, she smeared
some on my beak and I ate it up....yummy, heres a vote for you and one to Ray Ray

YEah true, maybe someday I will not be able to have fried chicken with skin. and hahah Mommy wishes Zazoo could give some of his weight too. Zazoo eats too much and I actually am fussy. I only love seeds and chicken. That's cool how your mommy can come home and eat lunch with you guys and all sounds so good too, yum! But I think I would be picky hhahah I seem to like food then just look at it and won't touch it. Mommy does not give in. She gives me good pelllets and when my seed bowl is empty then I have to eat my pellets. YES I was only 341 grams few weeks ago and now am 391 grqm but should be atleast 450. We are working hard towards that goal. Thanks for stopping by and say hello to all in your family for us too xoxoxo ANGEL

Yup I sure do love the fried chicken. It's from the local gorcery store and use good oil and no trans fat. And the vet said until I gain some weight and eat better that I can have as much fatty foods as I want so I am savoring the moment hee hee ANGEL Xoxoxo

Thanks for coming to see me. YEah I sure do love the fried chicken. It's made at the local grocery store with good light oils with no trans fat too. Mommy is not one to believe in letting us eat these. Zazoo only had small pieces and no skin. Mommy only got me about 6 months ago and am in my 3rd home and was fed only seed so mommy is having a very hard time making me eat anything. I will not eat veggies or fruit and not many pellets . Long story but went to vet and got checked out no disease but need to gain weight and vets said too that I should eat anything right now and then hopefully someday when I get to love food can cut back fatty foods but sure enjoying it for now. And eating with mommy at the table had me eat more. :) Thanks for stopping by. I think I know ray ray sounds familiar :) She visited Zazoo before :) By the way wow you are from florida too cool and you are so cute :) and my mommy tells Zazoo "mommy scratch the pickies" and that means she will help with the quills on his new feathers. aw your mommy does that too. :) XOXO ANGEL
