I saw an ad for her on Craig's list. I kept inquiring about her and filled out an adoption application. Her foster home contacted me about a week later and she came home with us on 6/4/2009. Her foster home loved her very much, and this is quite evident in her wonderful disposition and super personality..

Hi! My name is SUSAN, sooo Sweet!

I am a Solomon Islands Eclectus from whiting, NJ.

Red Bird, Sooz, Sweetheart, lil griffin, Su Su, Lil Sooz, Suzy

8 years old   F

Solomon Islands Eclectus

Susan likes cinnamon sticks, banana, hard boiled egg whites with egg shells and fresh cantaloupe. She also likes to have a tiny bit of hard cheddar cheese as a treat (all of the birdies in our flock love this!!)

Her swing, her play top, and on anyone's shoulder or hand. She loves it especially when Mom cuddles with her at night! She is a Mamma's girl!

Susan gets nervous when she is perched on your hand and you are carrying her down a flight of steps. I am not sure why she doesn't like going down stairs, but she doesn't. I always have to cradle her against my body and tell he "it's ok", when I go down a flight of steps with her. She also doesn't like thunder storms and lightening strikes. (She was happy when we closed the blinds on the sliding glass door, so that she could no longer see out during a lightening storm.)

Susan loves her new home and her big new cage. Her foster home was very thoughtful and sent her off with some of her favorite toys and some of the food that she had been eating. (I don't know what she would do without her swing!) Susan likes the fact that we let her be herself, and she seems to be enjoying the variety of different foods that she has been getting since she has been here. She especially likes fresh vegetables and fruits. Susan likes getting new toys and she especially likes chasing around a little ball with a bell inside of it. She plays on the floor of her cage with the ball. She throws it around like a puppy playing! Susan is a crazy and playful girl! Susan seems to like having her cage kept spic and span clean; and she likes trying "to help out" while I do this for her.

Susan loves her baths; and she enjoys being fussed over when I dry her and fluff her feathers for her. (Like a lady being spoiled and fussed over in a beauty salon!)Susan also can't keep her beak off of anyone's jewelry. SHE IS SUCH A GIRL! Susan loves to swing on her swing really fast. It is funny how she pushes off of the sides of her cage to make herself swing!!! She also likes to dip some of her food in her water dish before she eats it. Susan has a very loud scream that she does on random and without warning. The first time that I heard it was very startling. Pedro and Rocket were just hanging out on their perches when Susan decided to scream...both birds went flying off in different directions! Susan can get a reaction out of anyone with her prehistoric sounding dinosaur scream! (I think that I heard her laugh when Rocket and Pedro went blasting off of their perches!!! LOL) Thankfully we don't hear this noise from her very often. Susan also enjoys immitating new noises. The other night we were watching a movie on TV that had a military theme to it. There was alot of machine gun fire in it; and it did not take long and before we knew it Susan was also "firing her machine gun"! Susan joined in the battle for the entire rest of the movie, and really seemed to be enjoying herself while she did it. She is quite a character and we love her SOOOOOOO much! Susan is a cheerleader for the Bird Channel "Wonder Wings" baseball team. Susan loves to make "owl calls" to the crowd during the games. She gets very excited and swings back and fourth very fast on her swing, when the team scores a run! LOL.

Make noise when everyone else in the flock does...and then they won't know that it is you!!

  Hi Susan
That is great that your mom got a good nap today! Wow even with Maestro and Buddy chatting too...she must of really been tired.
Looks like we are safe for the weekend again since BC is still up and running!
There was no sunbath for yours truly today. First off it was hot and humid and then mom went to the store and by the time she got home it sure was too hot!
Today was NRA youth day at the gun club dad belongs to and the grands came to participate in it. They had fun and learned a lot too. Dad went up this morning to meet with skin sis and DIL and then he had to go to the trail to fix something there. After that he stopped at home and mom went to the gun club with dad to watch the grands in the different activities. Yep that left me home alone! Now mom is way behind and almost time for bed.

Bet your mom will have a nice "me" day that I am sure will include you too!
We keep expecting to come on BC and it not be here so always a good day when its still working!
Today was suppose to be cool but nice and all that jazz but it didn’t happen. The weather guesser was really wrong today. It was cool alright(78) but we had lots of rain and clouds here! Yours truly didn’t get a sunbath that is for sure. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.
The nurse called mom this morning and said the blood work came back ok. The one thing the doctor was concerned about came back fine though moms platelets are low and she has to be rechecked for that in 3 months. Moms platelets do run low once in a while and mom suspects she was just born with low platelets. She can usually tell cause she is more tired too when they are low.

Yep mom was resting though...she never naps like dad does in the day time though.
Well it was a month ago that BC was suppose to be gone but its still here and so are we!!
No sun bath for me today ! We had a cloudy and off and on rainy day here but the good thing was the humidity was lower at last. The other good thing was mom was home all day with me and we had lots of one on one time together too. It was a great laid back Sunday and my kind of day. Hope yours was great too.

It seems our hummers have slowed down a bit here. Usually the vinyl does clean up nice so hope yours does too.
And another day it is with BC!! Just amazing it is still here but happy too!
Today was very hot and humid here right from the start so no sunbath for me again! Mom washed clothes and the sheets. She hung a few clothes out and the sheets and they dried pretty fast too. The rest of the day was in house with mom. Dad did a few things down on the trail and when he came home he laid on the floor and fell asleep. Mom laid on the couch and I got under my condo and fell asleep. Just as mom as dozing I decided I had enough sleep and came out and played with my jungle talk toy. For some reason mom and dad decided they were done resting and mom never did sleep LOL.

Yes life changes and we miss having the skin sibs around too. Mom keeps reminding the skin sibs now is the best time while the skin sibs are home.
Its always a big surprise when we come on BC and its still here, but we are enjoying it as long as we are able!
Today I got up on my window sill and was looking out and there was peeping dog looking back at me from his upstairs window! I thought he was on vacation or moved but nope he was here today in the fur.
Today was nice enough I went out for my sunbath though I did do my own bath in the water bowl when mom ran the sweeper.

  Hi Susan
That is funny cause mom thought the same thing that the hummers should just eat and fill up and not be fighting LOL.
We had rain during the night last night here.
Well here it is another day with BC so guess we will get through the weekend since its rumored BC doesn’t work on the weekend. We shall see!
Last night mom and dad went to skin sis where skin brother and his family also came and the grands all went swimming for a good hour or more. Then a fire was built in the fire pit down in the back yard and everyone roasted marsh mellows, hot dogs and made smores. Mom took zucchini iced cupcakes so the grands and family all had a great time. Mom got home just in time to cover me and give me a kiss good night though it was way past my bedtime.

  Hi Susan
That is strange the sugar stuff for the hummers would turn to syrup so would think something is the matter with it too. Hope your mom can get a refund on it too. Mom just uses sugar and water and boils the water and the hummers like that it seems better then the stuff she bought before.
Gus is on his porch and hollering for mom to cover him up LOL.
Every day we are expecting BC to be gone forever when we get on and always so nice to get to blog with our friends one more day!
Tonight mom and I was looking out the big picture window at all the wild birds and hummers and a bunch of geese went flying by in the sky and were scattered all over and not in a V formation at all. Then pretty soon another bunch flew over and they were in a row one behind each other and not in formation either. We could hear them honking as they flew over though LOL.

Mom makes me mash so will be good to get fresh fruit stand stuff for that too. Mom makes me a fresh fruit bowl every day around noon.
We have another day here on BC though we know our days are numbered. The weekends BC doesn’t work so we have been told so if that is the case we just might have tomorrow too.
Moms cousin came early this morning and her and mom went to their friends house and met up with another friend and the four of them went to a scrap booking show. Mom was glad she didn’t have to drive to the show cause it was pouring down rain! The good part was dad was home all day with me! Mom didn’t buy much at the show but did a lot of looking LOL.
It rained here all day till late afternoon and thinking tomorrow might be more of the same. It seemed to be cooler today but with no sun that does happen LOL.

Yes, BC never seems to do what they say they are going to do. Glad we didnt delete our pages too.
I dont allow mom to mess with my feathers either. I push her hand away with my beak LOL.
Well we got another BC day!
This morning mom cooked up some steel cut oats since I was about out of what she made before. Mom puts them into packets and freezes them for my breakfast. I have that with applesauce and maybe a few other goodies depending on what mom has available in the house that I can have.
Then this afternoon she decided to go to the fruit stand since her friend told her they had chambersburg peaches again. Mom really didn’t want to go and took two tries before she got her tail feathers moving. When she was there they told her the fruit stand was sold and would be open year round other then on Sundays so mom sure was glad to hear that! Now mom can get me good fruit all year round as long as its in season.

We are on you pet but as long as BC is up and running we arent on YP much.
Well it looks like we have another day with BC but know our time is limited. I wish some of the others had stayed too but we have our little group for now so happy for what we have.
Today I helped mom do the laundry …well I watched mostly. LOL. Mom hung a few things out on the line and it was so hot they dried really fast. Mom was scrubbing the floors and then when she ran the sweeper it always makes me take a bath in my water bow so of course today was no different. I didn’t get out for a sunbath with the heat and humidity today. Mom said she about melted when she was outside though even just hanging up and taking down clothes.

Awww those deer sure sound cute! Mom likes them but doesnt like them running into her car though LOL.
Well like Cookie said I5 doesn’t work on the weekends so we are on another day with BC.
Today was hot and humid and in the 90’s so way too hot for a sunbath even early this morning. We got some rain this evening and it cooled it down a tad. Summer time is nice but we don’t want it this hot but mom says the weather can’t be ordered.
The milonga was nice on FB last night but real confusing for us so we just listened and watched once we announced we were there.

Mom got your email and did respond to it too!
Some birdy said BC is suppose to be here till the 26 but I don’t remember who said that. If that is the case then we have a few more days to blog.
Today was really hot and humid again. Mom did go to see the grands a bit this morning but that was it and once she came back home she was in the house where the AC hasn’t quit running almost all day. Of course I didn’t go out for a sunbath either. Mom had thought of taking me out this morning for a bit but it was even too hot then too. I guess this beats snow though LOL.

Yes just never know how long BC will still be up and running now!
Well we get another day here on BC and always a surprise when we can. Some one said the guy is sick that was suppose to end our time on BC so till he gets better I guess we have a few more days to blog with our friends which is great!
Mom went grocery shopping this morning and then came home and I was on her shoulder helping. She soon had me and a I got a bath and then was whisked out side in my fluffy towel into my outside condo for a sun bath. The humidity is low and there was a breeze so I didn’t mind it plus mom sits with me the whole time too and we discuss so many things!!
After dinner mom went to get a feather trim but dad was home so I got to be out of my condo. Sometimes its good to have two parronts for when one isn’t home!

The BC page is shrinking LOL
We didn’t have the heart to delete our page here on BC and still on till the ship sinks and then no choice. We are on you pet and FB bird page so a bit of everywhere yet LOL.
I didn’t get out for a sunbath cause mom said it was too hot and humid when the sun finally did come out today. It was raining and cloudy most of the morning and weather guesser kept threatening rain though we missed most of it but not the humidity.
Mom decided after supper tonight to perm her feathers since she is going to get a hair cut tomorrow and figured its easier with longer hair then short hair to perm so now mom has the curl look. Of course she hid out from me while she doing that cause of the stink she says. Dad was around so I didn’t have to be in my condo so that was good. Dad gets the job of putting the stuff on moms curls though so he would be missing a few times in between too LOL. Guess dad does a good job at that cause mom gets him to do it every time!

I'm back after my mommy's long stay of support at the hospital...
My skin auntie (My mommies sister) had to go to the hospital to stay with her boyfriend.
He came down with the flu cause he didn't take his flu shots.My auntie told her boy friend with all these different flu's going around that he needs to take them.He refused.He got sick with the flu and now he's in the hospital in a coma and on life support.All because of the flu.
We are all hoping for the best but he's getting worse by the day.
My auntie is heart broken and my mommy went to stay with her to give her support.

When my mommy came home she was tired.To her surprise us birds got a new play gym.My daddy got it for us to make us happy while my mommy was gone.

There's lots of rain going on here and we are loving it.

I hope you have an awesome day today.Did you know today is national nap day???
Nothing like a good nap with lots of rain heehee!!!

Remember make your hoomans take their flu shots!!! It's very important.

I'm back and I missed you so much!!!Mommy played stubborn and didn't listen to her doctor.Any way he made her rest and talked to my daddy and skin sibs.He told them there's only so much she can do until completely healed...

Mommy wants you to know that she can't be on BC typing for me everyday.But she will type for me every other day minus the weekends..

Today we got up to a very dark day.We are now having a strong storm and it's cold outside.
We love it!!!

Happy hot humpday!!! Today is a repeat of the last few weeks.My mommy can't stand it and feels under the weather today.
This is unreal on how mommy heals up and it gets hot again.Then she ends up feeling sick from the heat again because it's back!!!

This hooman world is really whacked.Just think if us birds ruled it things will be much better .Such as no global warming and no destruction of our beloved mother earth.

Last night a cute lil baby goat wandered on our property.My mommy saw him eating tangerines off the tree and she wanted to keep him.
By the time the skins made it out there to catch him he had run off...
Maybe he will come back???

Hopefully the rain will make it here and it will give us some relief.Lets keep our talons crossed!!!!

I wish I could distribute this heat to my BC family who are living in cold states and they can distribute their cold weather to us birds who are frying...

I thought crickets only come out during the summer.Guess what???
They are invading us!!!!

You can blame this one on mommy!!!! Yesterday she was supposed to color her feathers and she got caught up doing something else...

Cleaning the house...


So today as I chat with you my mommy has a new color in her feathers.It smells! Now she's playing catch up.

On my blogs? The nerve of her!!!

The weather is hot and mother Nature sure can be rude at times.
Do you agree with me???

Sorry I got to make this short,like I said blame mommy on this one.

My flock and family wait all year for the cool weather and we get a tease!!!

A lot of birds say we are lucky but what they don't know is that we live in the central dessert where it's the hottest.

Mommy couldn't stand it yesterday and in the next few days it will be warmer...
This is supposed to be winter and we are wondering what happened to it???

This is quite ironic on how mommy starts to get better because the heat went away and now it's back.All 88 degrees of it!!!

This is so not right for us California birds!!!!

Other than that we had an awesome BBQ with green chili and Steak along with blue cheeseburgers and BBQ beans with fry bread.Yummy!

  Hi Sweet Susan,
Today I want to talk about where my mom is from. She grew up in a little town called Hilo pronounced (hee lo). The name of Hilo is an ancient one, its origins lost in the mists of time. One of the widely accepted origins is that Hilo was named for a famous Polynesian navigator, Hiro, perhaps in honor of his great skill in bringing his people to this rich and fertile place.

The first night of the lunar month, just following the new moon, is known as Hilo. The think crescent moon is on the eastern horizon as the sun rises, its shape reflected in the curve of Hilo Bay's crescent shaped black sand beach.

No story of Hilo is complete without mention of the three names for Hilo. Hilo-one refers to the part of Hilo fronting the black sand beach, where shoreline activities like fishing and canoe launching took place. Hilo-Hanakahi, the fertile food-producing land south of Hilo Bay was named for a beloved chief who ruled here during a time of peace. The formidable cliffs that run north from the mouth of the Wailuku River are known as Hilo-pali-ku. Hilo was considered waiwai, or wealthy, due to its abundance of fresh water.

A charming folk tale has long been told linking Hilo to King Kamehameha, a great warrior, whose chief ambition, which he lived to realize, was to become the ruler of all the Hawaiian Islands. Naturally, he had numerous enemies, and he never remained long in one place for fear that the some of them might learn about his whereabouts and attack him.

Okay now for some fun stuff. Today is Sunday and it is spelled Lapule pronounced (la-poo-lay) in Hawaiian. The month is February and it is spelled 'Ianuali pronounced (yah-new-ah-lee) in Hawaiian. Have you got it? :)

Just say it slow and it will come, soon you all will be eggsperts in speaking Hawaiian.

Tomorrrow is spelled i ka la 'apopo pronounced (ee kah lah ah-poh-poh) in Hawaiian.

We shall finish or pau/(pow) in Hawaiian with good afternoon or aloha awakea (ah-low-hah ah-vah-kay-ah)or (midday).

Mahalo a Nui Loa (ma-hah-low ah noo-ee low-ah) or Thank you very much for your love and support.

Here's a vote for you and hope you all have a great Lapule afternoon! :)

Love,

Laka Aolani, Candidate for BOTM

My mommy's nose appointment went well...The doctor made her sit back in that weird chair they have for noses and he gave her a shot of cortisone in each side of her nose.She said it did't hurt because the doctor numbed the pain.
Then he gave her a prescription of cortisone pills and Flonase spray.
So far it's working and my mommies nose has cleared up.
My mommy said the doctor was awesome and knew exactly what to do in the case of her nose heehee!!!

Today's a slow day with not much to do.The weather is still nice and cool but will be in the hot 80's by this weekend.YUCK!!!! I'm so not looking forward to that!!!

Please excuse any misspelling cause the key board on my mommies puter is taking a poop on her.

My mommy has been addicted to Afrin nose spray since she was 8 years old.She blames it on my G-ma but I know she could have kicked it years ago so who's fault is it???Not only that. My skin auntie is addicted to it too.
When they don't have it they can't breathe in or out of their nose.
I know it sounds funny but it's true heehee.When my mommy and auntie went to the nose doctor he looked in my mommies nose and said this is amazing!!!
Hmmmm I wonder what he means by that?
The weather here is still nice and cool and by the end of this week we will be getting 80 degrees and up on our temps.
Laka is so blessed that her weather is always nice and never too hot even at 80 degrees...

Have an awesome day and I'll keep you updated on my mommies nose heehee!!!

Love your buddy

Who gave me vote 9000? Well today the computer was a mess earlier. It was the last zap from the power outage yesterday from the rain storm.My mommy has to turn off the computer to prevent any damage from happening.Well that last zap wiped out her Pop up blocker and she had to redo it.
I was so angry that I wanted to beat up the computer!!! I chased down the sucking machine this morning and my mommy had to turn it off and catch me.I gave her a good run heehee!!!
I think the sucking machine is scared of me cause it runs from me.
That's what makes it fun...
We enjoyed the rain and hope to get more.We really need it...

Have an awesome day

Happy TGIF!!!
My mommy gave me a new nickname...She calls me Wild thing!!!Now do you think I should live up to it or take it as an insult and protest? What would you do if you were in my talons???

I still don't regret the fun I had yesterday heehee!!! My mommy got me some peanut butter flavored cheerios...Hmmmm I wonder if that's a bribe...

I'll have to check the situation out.My family knows I can't be bribed!!! Especially my Kevin. He can't get me to break no matter how hard he tries and I still get my way.

Am I Spoiled no...The man yes...

Have an awesome day
Luv & Winghugs

Happy Tuesday!!!
Mommy's doing fine except she needs to slow down the pace!!! Today's a boring day with not much happening.This morning my mommy ate a bowl of cheerios and she had about three left floating in her bowl.She got up and walked away for a minute and I ate the last three cheerios.
Anyway when she came back to the table she caught me taking a bath in the left over milk in the bowl heehee!!!
I heard milk is good for the skin so why not use it on feathers???
My mommy sprayed me with water to get the milk off and towel dried me.Then she put me in lockdown! She said Panther why do you always get into things when my back is turned?I looked at her and gave her a big beaky kiss.I melted her heart again and she let me out of lockdown...
What a challenge!!!!

Have an awesome day
Love your buddy

Happy TGIF!!!
This morning was awesome!!! I ate oatmeal with raspberries in it and had fun making a big mess...Then I sat down on my perch and watched the skin sibs argue over who got clean up detail heehee...

It looks like rain tomorrow but I hope it's tonight. Everyone around here gets it but us.What's up with that ???

Yesterday our temps went up to 70 degrees and it did bother me cause its still winter. Hopefully it cools down and does not get any hotter.

Have an awesome day

It's totally ridiculous the way the weather geeks on the news can't even get the weather right!!!
We don't know from one day to the next what we are getting...
Maybe we could do a better job heehee...Today is boring!!! My mommy is kicking back and letting her stitches heal up.
And me,I'm looking out the window in pure boredom!!! I think I'll count the bars in my cage AGAIN ????!!!!

Enjoy your your day
Love your buddy

Happy Thursday!!!
Today I'm taking you to part two of area 51...Jump on your sleds and lets ride through there...

When Sean Morten started visiting my mommy and my family lots of weird stuff started happening.

The skin sibs started telling my mommy they saw spirits dancing around the house at night.
And the neighbors told my mommy they saw guys dressed in camos creeping around our house.
My mommy was actually followed by some of these guys when she went to town.
There was strange noises like X-ray machines coming from no where.
Each time my mommy went out these guys got closer and closer to her.It got to the point where they would walk right behind her...
My mommy got scared!!!She wouldn't leave the house!!!

Sean Morten kept coming over on a regular basis showing my family recordings of area 51...
There was even a recording of Seans wife getting chased by UFO's as she hung her laundry on the line in Roswell New Mexico.

My Uncle from my daddy's side of the family then told my mommy there is something that is not human in our home...

PART THREE TOMORROW...

Happy humpday !!!
Today was somewhat quite and I got lots of mommy time so no complaints... I don't know what happened to the rain but I hope it comes back.
I found out that my mommy is highly addicted to those root beer barrel candies.She killed a whole bag heehee!!!
I love spray millet's and seed sticks. But I have to watch myself
When it comes to seed sticks.
I pack on the grams eating them.I become fluffy!!!

Have an awesome day

  Hey Susan
Good morning I'm glad to be back...
My Mommy's surgery went well and her hernias were removed successfully with no complications.I told her to bring them home in a jar heehee!!!
My mommy had outpatient surgery and was off BC for awhile due to the pain med's not letting her focus...
She's doing fine now and her stitches are annoying but healing...

Today I'm going to start off with a short blog and tomorrow and the days after my blogs will be longer.

Everyone lets jump on our Harley Hogs !!!

Here we are in Roswell New Mexico...Area 51...
If you haven't heard of it this is where there is lots of UFO sightings along with other weird and scarey things...

For those of you who don't believe in these things think about it...
How can a whole town and state be wrong and how can the military be wrong ???

As I ask once again who are we to make these judgements???
Only god knows!!!

Tomorrow we will be exploring Roswell New Mexico and area 51...
Each story told is a true account of what happens here...

Trust me Cookie,Tweety and BB knows...You wouldn't believe how many times BB has caught Tweety and Cookie here visiting their alien friends...Heeehee!!!!

Tomorrow I will start my series....

Thank you for your votes and well wishes for my mommy

Here's part 3 of the Penitente's...

My mommy found out that those dolls created in the image of each Penitente would be thrown in a pit in back of the ranch if they died or left the religion.

The Angel of death was also revealed to them. The guy Richard told them that whoever it pointed at would die.In the first picture in my gallery is a picture of what they call the real angel of death who wakes up to take his victims soul away on a chariot of fire...

Anyway my mommy introduced herself to the guide and told him she is the daughter of hundreds of generations of medicine men and women from the Northern Cheyenne tribe.She knew it would scare him and it did.
He also also saw the medicine pouch hanging around her neck that is hundreds of years old.
He looked nervous and gave them his farewells very quickly and walked them off the ranch.
My mommy,Katherine and the school kids made it out of there without incident!!!

My mommy always say's you may win the battles in life but are you prepared for winning the big war in your life ???
Always dig deep into your roots and tap into your inner strength...
You will receive honor and victory...

Thank you for your votes...
Love
Jedi

PS...I'll be back Monday with a weird and funny blog...
