I met my mom when she came to meet my African Grey flockmate who, like me, was in need of a new home, our first family having grown too old to care for us. It is with pride that I tell you that I think I made more of an impression than the sulky grey did 'cause I waved and said "HELLO!". Saber said nothing and did nothing but glare. I owe that bird though because after he was adopted, he put in a good word for me, mentioning my name often in the days after he moved in. That had mom thinkin' the grey bird missed me after eight years of bein' together. Truth be told, Saber didn't miss me but I sure love being a part of this family.

Hi! My name is RaneBeau ('>

I am a Macaw from Monmouth, IL.

'Bo', BoMan, RaneBeau, BIRDBRAIN (according to CocoPuff)******- *
I joined the BC 1.2007. **** ******* ***** My Hatchday is Feb. 10!

19 years old   M


Pistachios and hazelnuts in the shell. I love cheese but so rarely get any, it's like the ultimate treat.

It used to be a laundry basket with a collection of mismatched socks or the top of Saber's cage but that's all changed now. I love to have a big cardboard box on the floor behind the door of my room where I can hide and no one can see me. Except for my tail that is. I also hang out on my grapevine perch on the side of my cage or in the closet if I happen to catch the door left ajar.

When Reba is invited out of the bird room and I'm not, it gives me cause to holler at the rude human that didn't take ME too. Other than that, I'm rather unruffled about most everything else in life.

My mom sticks up for me when I'm noisy, reminding the family that I'm just excited and want to be in on the action! She tries to keep life interesting for me by including me in most everything she does, whether inside the house or outdoors. I appreciate that I'm allowed out of my cage most of the day...until those guys come home...

I have to float almost everything I eat in water first; Birdie Bread, granola bars, Walnut loaf, fruit, you name it, it's goes in there. (Update; I don't do this much anymore. It's just dried apricots I put in my water bowl now. Can you believe that flat things becomes a plump apricot after a long soak? Me neither!) I prefer to play on the floor, unless that's the norm for all macaws. I don't know.

Wherever my Mom is,that's where I wanna be. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~- ~~~~~~If you'd like to see me 'In Action'... YouTube. com/kelybrd.

  Thank you RaneBeau
for sharing your scarf sweater.
Dad did NOT get the furnace hooked up to the generator for the taking down of trees. Fortunately the house never cooled below 60. Dad put a space heater in the dining room so HE'D be warm, but it was close for me too.
I also spent some time on mom's lap under a fleece blanket. That was very warm.
Mom went grocery shopping today and reports all the spring stuff is out, with some St. Patty thrown in. Lots of Easter.
Me, I'm just working hard at getting my collar undone. I have one of the eggstra paddings mom sewed on to keep me from getting to my shoulder feathers almost all undone. YAY ME!

  Hi RaneBeau!
I just love your visits, and they happen too rarely. It's great to see you!
We talked to Rose last night, and Nana had her surgery yesterday. She will be going to rehab after a stay in the hospital, and she's very worried about her own birds, Trixie and Bella. We think Rose will end up taking care of them as well as her mom.
We were surprised to see Divo as Angel of the Day today. Thanks for remembering him.
Mom was at the center this morning as usual, and had the RVS room to clean. There was only one groundhog in there today, as well as that mean raccoon, and 5 bats. The good news about the bats is they are all in one terrarium. That's also the bad news! It's hard to keep track of who's been fed, and the white out was nowhere to be found. They all ate, mom thinks. They are so cute when they drink, too. Mom gives them water in a 1cc oral syringe, and their little tongues just lap it up from the tip of the syringe.
After the center she went to the supermarket to get us fresh veggies and to get herself some juice. Tomorrow she has raptor class at the center, it will be on medical handling for raptors, we think. They might redo the mammal handling class, which is great, since mom missed it. She also told them already that she would miss next week's raptor class because that's the day she helps out at Biscuits Bingo. Hopefully they will do something to make sure mom qualifies for raptor handling, since she's been doing it for 13 years.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of warm cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Peppino, Divo & Falco.

  Hey what a great surprise !
Seeing you at my perch to share in the celebration ! Thanks ! TGIF ! Now if only it could get warmer - 22 days till Spring ! ! ! We've had a couple feet of snow this year, but it's been so cold none of it has melted !

I had a great bath last night - mom says finally cause I've been cranky and hormonal - EVERYTHING got wet ! Even daddy who sat with me to splash :) Then we sang my quaker song for a long time LOUDLY ! After that, I went to bed early so mom is hoping I'll be in a better mood today ?

Have a great Friday my friend :) Love Cookie

Hey ... is that whipped cream? I want some too ... looks like you are enjoy a taste, lucky bird.
Yeah, we were without power for 12 hours. The generator didn't want to work. So, dad had the car outside with lights on the generator. He worked out there for a good hour. Finally it worked (not greyt) but, he was in and out all night to make sure we stayed warm. We had it on for an hour and off for a half hour all night. I had a ton of blankets on my condo. It wasn't a fun night.
I would have to put up that For Sale sign when dad isn't looking! Mom & I already found a place we like in FL.
So, you had some more snow ...I feel bad for you. I agree that it should be here on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day ... and then be gone!!!
Jess got a hard cast on Monday and today they re-casted it as it was hurting her thumb. Silly bird, I can hear you clunk step clunk step .... hehehe. She is doing pretty good so far.
Oh my ... you are colder than we are???? Poor birdie :(
This weekend, mom is putting up a new page called Derby Farms. It will have derby info and any pics you want to post of the derby horses. She will have the horses picked by then too.
Tonight we'll be down to -22 degrees. Dad has the generator ready to go ... just in case! They cleared the roads down to the ice, greyt job!! We should see some sun the next few days. Hurry SPRING!

  Hi RaneBeau
This morning was another cold morning here and it started snowing again a little after 10:00am this morning.Mom got us up and fed us and quickly cleaned our cages and swept our room a little as skin bro was on his way over to pick her up to take her to the hospital to be there in time for Nana's hip surgery.Mom had tried calling the hospital all morning to find out when the surgery was going to be and finally after being bounced around from one floor to the other she talked to someone who told her it would be at 1:00pm.Skin bro stopped at Nana's house to check on my cousins,Bella and Trixie II.Skin bro is taking really good care of them.Mom changed out their papers and skin bro gave Bella more to eat before we took off for the hospital.Mom had called her sister this morning to tell her about Nana and she met us at the hospital shortly after we got there.Nana was so tired as she got no sleep all last night because of the severe pain she was in and while Mom and skin bro were there they took more blood from her asked more medical history questions,gave her more meds for the severe pain she was in and then the surgeon came and marked her leg in purple ink that was to be operated on.She never got in at 1:00pm and it was sometime after 2:00pm that they finally brought her down to the OR.The dr told us it would be about an hour and a half for the surgery but Mom and her sister and skin bro were sitting in the waiting room for three and a half hours waiting for word.Mom and skin bro hadn't eaten anything all day and were quite tired and bored just sitting there waiting and worrying!When Nana finally came back from the OR the nurses did their thing with her again,blood pressure,temperature,etc.then Mom,her sister and skinbro could go in and see her.She was so nauseous and they had brought her a tray of jello,chicken broth,tea and apple juice but the nurse didn't want her to eat any of it so she told Mom and skinbro and her sister to eat it,skin bro had the apple juice,Mom's sis had the jello and Mom tried some of the chicken broth but didn't like it!Nana will be in the hospital for three more days and then by Sunday they will transport her to a rehab center,she doesn't want to go and if she has to go there Mom wants her to go to Spaulding in Sandwich and her sister wants her to go to JML.Nana sides with Mom if she has to go she'll chose Spaulding!Its been another really long day for Mom she's been at the hospital with nothing to eat or drink all day again and didn't get home til 7:00 tonight and my dad came home shortly after that!Then Mom had to get my dad something for dinner and they were having dinner by nine tonight,Mom gave him another heat and eat dinner with mashed potatoes,poor dad hasn't had much of a good dinner in days now!Mom is just too tired by the time she gets to come home!

Hey! It was greyt to hear from you, dude! I have missed you, and I do hope you are staying warm out there in the frozen tundra!

Quick blog today since Mom wasn't able to log on to BC at all earlier. I am already in bed, but I told her what to say for me.

I actually got a sunbath today! It hit 73 degrees, so Mom got me out there right at noon and it was lovely. Then we came in and had a turkey, pepper jack cheese and spinach wrap for lunch. Now why does she have to load all that spinach on there? I accidentally ate some, and yikes! That stuff is good for you! I must admit I do like that spicy cheese though.

  Hi ya RaneBeau~~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Sounds like there are some good eats at your place! I wonder how long it would take me to get there???

It has been one crazy week. Jennifer's dad had a heart attack on Tuesday. He is doing okay but it sure was unexpected. Jennifer was in shock. Mom and Ian took her down to Olympia to the hospital. She is still down there and keeping in touch through text.
The doctors didn't really explain anything to Jennifer and her sisters. I think they were waiting for his wife. She lives in Florida and didn't arrive until last night. We haven't heard anything today but we are guessing he is doing okay.
Her dad is a teacher at a college down in Olympia and has a contract so that is why he still lives here while his wife lives in Florida. His parents live down there too and they got in yesterday morning.
Her dad is not very old or heavy but he is very fond of junk food. I think he is going to have to have a big lifestyle change and I think it would probably be a good idea if he moved down to Florida.

Today is a boring day and that is just fine by me. I didn't like mom being gone all that time. She did bring me back some rice and veggies so I sort of forgave her!

It's wet up here for a few days but it's going to be sunny again in a few days. I have heard how cold it is out your way!
Dad has been lucky because he has been mostly out west and we are having a non-winter this year.

I hope you enjoy the day!!!! Please give mom and the flock our love!

How is things on the McFarm, I miss visiting with all of you guys there! We have bitter cold at our home also, complicated with overnight snow, yuck! We are nearing the end of February already, it is traditionally the coldest and snowiest month the year, but all bets are off this year! Please join us in sending Dixie's g-ma prayers to help relieve the pain from her broken hip, that is a very serious injury for anybody, but especially for older people! Be well Nana, God Bless you! With all our snow and windchill, we will be staying in and having more flock lovin' time! Have a great Thursday, and give our love to all in your happy parrot cottage, see ya tomorrow...

  Hi Ranebeau!
So nice to hear from you in the frozen north! I wish i could send you some of our hot weather! It made it to 90F today, the hottest it has been this month! So guess we are getting into spring/summer weather now.

I had a very boring day today. My parronts went to the city. Dad went golfing and then they went to see the movie American Sniper. They always give me some of my wooden cookies (kept in my personal cookie jar on the kitchen counter) to chew on while they are gone, and they forgot! So i was very bored. So i was forced to take a nap! They didn't even leave any music on for us. Super boring!

I do enjoy some ice cream and yesterday i had two chicken wings so that was wonderful. I love me some chicken wings! Mom calls me a cannibal! But i just can't help it! And i noticed tonite that dad has a can of whipped cream in the fridge- another of my favorite guilty pleasures! Maybe he will make it up to me for the boring day with a little squirt of cream tonite before bed!

I do think it is very cool you have llamas. When we lived at our farm, we had a lot of hay for the goats, horses and rabbits and they all enjoyed getting free access to the hay room when the weather was cold too! Comfort food! Hehehe!

Well, mom is giving me the "almost time for bed" look. But of course the lovebirds have to go to bed before me and they are still flying all over. Little pests! They get in my cage and eat from my bowl! I act cool about it and pretend i'm not even looking at them but i really am! I'm very sneaky! Hehehe!

Hope you and Kelly and Kirby have a fun week and get lots of scritches! I have been supervising mom with the making of new seat cushions for the dining room table chairs and some throw pillows for outside. It is a lot of work so i better get some whipped cream! Right?

...Jen said she saw your name on sweet Sugars page, and that is great, it shows your class, of which you are dripping with! I have always liked you a lot, but I had my Romeo, and since his/her sex change, I am free to pc my own friends, and I pic you! I am nothing special, just a real parrot that loves life and all it holds, I have not sampled all life had to offer but I am ready now! Our BC is still giving us fits, dad had to enter our password 7 times before it finally came on line! At least we are signed on for now! Nothing special planned for the day, just more of the same, maybe a little bit boring to some, but that's the way we like it! We are praying for rain in So Cal for Pearl & Silver, warmer weather for our Michigan Chyna, and all our friends in the devastated Boston and East Coast area!

  Hi RaneBeau
I thought you would be stopping over once a week? I miss you. Are you resting up for all the derby stuff that's coming up soon?
Jess was dancing at a b-day party. Someone dropped a bottle and walked away. She slipped on the glass/liquid and went down like a rock. So my parronts have made many trips to doctors, xrays, er etc. Today, I was locked up cause mom had to take her for a hard cast (She had this $80 Velcro thing on since Sunday morning). Now they say she will need another hard cast in 3 weeks ..oh goodie. I want to sign her cast!
We still have 3 feet of snow and the cold this winter is unreal! negative temps daily! I'm a frozen birdcycle.
We can't cry cause it freezes on our face!
Oh yes, Mother Barbara did a beautiful job on my portrait. Mom is going to have one of Bailey done too and then frame them.
Another winter weather advisory until Tuesday night! We are having more snow and cold ...temp is minus 18. Well, I had to stock up on my hot chocolate mix! This is getting so old ... where is the spring weather?

  Oh yes the dinner party!
I completely forgot to tell you about all the great smells we smelled and all the nice people who visited our cage!
First Mom gave them the tour- our houses are similar but some are wider. Mom had the insert burning a nice warm fire that kept the downstairs a warm 75 and we sure benifited too.
Dinner was pork with herbs and apples that cooked down to sauce, for non meat eaters there was flounder with almonds, grilled eggplant, salad and rice. One nice neighbor brought appetizer which was great cause it took a little longer to cook the pork and apples than Mom realized. They sat around and talked and laughed until about midnight. Way past my bed time but I made up for it the next day. We sure do like our neighbors!
Sleep well good friend!

  Hi Ranebeau!
I'm sure glad you had such a nice hatch day. I love me a piece of cheese too! I'd have tah say that is one of my favorite foods except for chicken! hehehe! Mom says I'm a cannibal. I've never had apple raisin cake before but I bet it's good. I have had ice cream as a snack lately during tv time with my parronts. Dad says I get brain freeze from eating it too fast. I do enjoy it though!
We are hearing about the wicked cold weather y'all are having up there in the frozen north. It has been chilly for us here but actually today it was pretty hot. Squeaks and I helped mom do some bird counting in the yard for the great backyard bird count. We even had a woodpecker today so that was cool. We don't see them much, every so often so he picked out a good day to visit us! No flamingos this year though. They are all in their winter home now. They were late going and in December there were thousands here in the lagoon behind our island. Mom likes the babies - they are gray until they eat enough shrimp to turn pink.
Not much going on around here otherwise. Of course everything is boring after the boas in the yard last month. I don't know if you heard but one day we had an 8 ft. one right by the front door and a week later there was one almost 3 ft. long there too. Dad relocated them back to the lagoon! They really freaked out the cats who look at that spot now whenever they go in and out the door. Mom isn't a fan either! How is your llama? I bet he is nice and warm with all that nice llama wool!
Well, sleepy time here! Hugs and enjoy your new privacy hut wall. It is always nice to have a dark, private hidey spot!

A hundred, did I say?
I gave a thousand Valentine’s
One cold and wintry day.
I didn’t put my name on them
Or any other words
Because my Valentine’s were seeds

roses are red
violets are blue
love is sweet
and so are you

  Hi RaneBeau
Sounds like you had a great hatchday and that cake sounds delicious. I'm not so sure about the raisins though I would probably pick around those.
We are surviving winter pretty good up here hasn't been to bad not like last winter was.We have only got a little bit of snow and only a few really cold spells.
The ice fishing was great I went with a few of the guys and we caught a ton of fish we even had a big fish fry at the kissing booth.
My mom says she use to love ice fishing when she was a little girl only her feet would freeze guess her boots weren't very good.
Happy Friday the 13th hopefully you had a great day. Have a good night buddy.

  Hi RaneBeau!
36 days to spring!
Today was really cold, but it's only the beginning. It's supposed to get colder and colder, ending with a single digit on Sunday and wind chills below zero. Today there were some scattered flurries, but nothing serious fell from the sky.
This morning mom had a tour of Egypt hall with 6th grades from Sharon, a bit north of us. After that she had a meeting about the training that she and another docent will be doing for the new class next Tuesday after the meeting. They got everything solidified, and got an extra hour for the training as well. It's a lot to cover, and they thought it would be better to go for 3 hours rather than 2.
After mom left the museum, she picked up her sister and they went out to pick up sis's new glasses, then went to lunch at Red Lobster. Of course, they both ordered dinner instead of lunch so neither of them has to cook tonight. It was a nice outing but kind of long, as mom's sister wanted to find a specific kind of licorice that she likes, and they went to a couple of stores before finding it at Moio's bakery. (You know mom bought something there, too, so it's a good thing they went after lunch!)
Now we get mom for the rest of the day, YAY! She will clean our cages, then have us out to cuddle. Hope you are getting lots of cuddles and scritches today, too. Stay warm! Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Peppino, Divo & Falco.

  Hi RaneBeau
So happy that you were able to collect a bunch of hatchday wishes. I hit the FB and BC! That was so unfair of them to go down. Then our net went down after that :( Today, it has been taking me 5 tries every time I want to sign in ... BC doesn't like my password I guess.
Thanks for calling me a model. Mom says I move my head too much but, I'm trying. She posed me in front of a tea towel ... what's with that???
My mom's walking on cloud 9 from your kiss ... silly mom!
Looks like another footie pj and two cups of hot chocolate night. We have a wind chill advisory until 02/12 at 1 pm posted for us.
Hope all this nasty weather that every birdie is getting goes away soon. Stay warm and cozy.

  Hi Ranebeau
I am hurrying to try to get around to see all my friends. I couldn't get on yesterday but finally arrived here today. I spent yesterday working on my newest wooden toy made by Chuey's Momma at Chuey's Unusual Chewies Toys. It is a red and blue helicopter with a blade that actually turns. I ate the blade so it doesn't fly away on me. It is fun to play with and the little back tail blade turns in circles on it's wood peg.
I go to see Dr Z next Monday afternoon. He wants to take a look at my other, only foot and see why the toes are circles on two of them. I still perch ok, move ok but Momma Deb wants to be sure it doesn't become a problem for me.
Tomorrow is Riley's hatchday so I'm heading there for cupcakes. I love cake by the way just in case anybirdie wants to surprise me with one! LOL!
Well, back to testing out new wooden toys. Today it is a medium sized Zon tug boat. I think I'll start on the wooden rings first!
PS thank you for the daily votes.

Dixie apologizes for coming over so late but he's been kicked off BC for the last two days and he wasn't able to get back on til later on tonight!Dixie tells RaneBeau that he fell on his back again on the tile floor and he couldn't get up so his Mom had to grab him really quickly and hold him for hours as she was terribly upset and scared,this is the second time that he's fallen on his back,Mom will have to seriously find him something he can be with her and not fall and get hurt.Oh but enough of me,I'm wishing you get the best hatchday celebration ever,lots of hatchday cake and new toys to chew up and lots of special treats!You sure do deserve to have something super special on your very special day!Dixie hugs RaneBeau tightly one more time before he has to go before BC decides to kick him off again!I love you so much RaneBeau!You enjoy your awesome day!Love always and forever,Dixie
