Mom put a down payment on a cockatoo. When we were weaned and the time came for her to choose between me and my brother, she asked us, "Which one of you guys would like to come home with me today?" My brother wanted nothing to do with her. I took one look at her, climbed up on her arm and up onto her shoulder. She said, "It looks like I have been chosen!" and took me home. I did choose her that day. I knew she would be easy to tame! HATCHDAY: MARCH 20, 1995. ADOPTION DAY: JUNE 4, 1995. My Parents are: His Majesty and The Queen. I am royalty and mom says I definitely have the attitude!.

Hi! My name is Chicklet

I am a Bare-Eyed Cockatoo from Nelson, BC.

Chickerdoodles, Chickabee, Chickabeast (when I am bad), Bones, Dover, Baby Bare

19 years old   F

Bare-Eyed Cockatoo

Almonds in the shell, bananas, mangoes, almonds in the shell, spinach, almonds in the shell, peanuts, sugar snap peas, almonds in the shell...

I absolutely love my pet human(PH), so I want to be with her! I also prefer that we hang out in the bathroom because of all the vanity mirrors. Mom can't complain...she even has a 'throne' to sit on! ha ha

I really hate the vacuum! I also don't like it when the neighbours across from us sit out on their patio. I have to yell my head off and let everyone know of my disapproval. I have a cagetop sitting area and sometimes the 'tiels like to perch there. I tolerate Sunny, but not the others.

She is a perfectly trained pet human. I love the head scratches I get and all the loving attention that she gives me. She also makes yummy food for me and gives me lots of things to play with. Ok, I guess the wicker laundry basket WAS hers, but I bit the handles off and chewed it down several inches and it is now my toy basket. I mean I can get away with anything when I look up at her and sweetly say, "I love you!" It works like a charm! Hee hee hee!

I am a feather plucker-even more so since I became sexually mature. I lay 2-5 eggs(usually 2) every year around Dec. to March. I insist on laying them in my pet humans hand while snuggling underneath her sweater. I even get her up in the middle of the night to do this. hee hee hee! I also like to wash my feet after I am done eating..

Anything not nailed down is mine;anything I can pry loose is not nailed down.

  Hello Chicklet~
I hope your day was just perfect! We had some very dark clouds to the west but sunshine to the east! It looked very pretty. We didn't do a whole lot today. Mom is off tonight and tomorrow night and we have lots to get done around the house. Dad will be home Wednesday and he gets to stay home until Christmas is over!!
Mom went to the mall today to the Hallmark store to get Ian an ornament. She got him the Spiderman one this year. Mom has been buying him a Christmas ornament every year since he was born. This will be ornament #32! He has a strange collection of book characters, Godzilla, spaceships and action figures! The very first one was the Poky Little Puppy! That was his favorite book at the time!
I hope your evening is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi sweet Chicklet, almond lover-from Angel Christy
Well the dad had a great time at our Club's Christmas Party, but came home tired and fell right to sleep! Now he is up early to start addressing our Christmas Cards, and he put a beef roast in our slow cooker, they always smell so good while cooking! Our commuter says we will reach 55 degrees today, jeepers it is 47 already! This should be a fun casual day around here, dad is about ready for one of those! I hope you all have a great day, and give our love to all in your happy home, we'll be back tomorrow...

Much love on Sunday & always, from Angel Christy & our family

  Hello Chicklet~
I hope you are having a great day! We've had no rain and the wind has died down too. It is a bit cooler but it's more like it should be this time of the year!
Look at that playstand! It is awesome! Looks like you are having a great time up there!!
There was a blackbird running around the furniture pad at mom's store this morning. Someone left the garden doors open and he came on in!! Mom tried to get him to come to her but he just hid around the back of an ottoman. She called her manager and told him that the bird was there and he told her that he had come in the day before. Her manager chased him around for half an hour but couldn't catch him. Mom thought about the fishing nets in the sporting goods department but the mesh is too big and she doesn't want him hurt. Mom suggested they make a trail of seed to the garden door. If he has been in the store for a day he must be hungry. There is a fountain in the indoor garden so he had access to water at least. Mom will find out tonight if they managed to get him out.

There are only 11 more ads until Christmas!hahaha Of course they are going to do an ad the day after also so mom will have to be there at midnight. They have tons of wrapping paper so everyone will probably be in for that. It will get slower after a few weeks. They have a storage event and early tax time and then it will be Valentine's Day! They already have throws, blankets, pillows and decor for Valentine's Day! At least it's all in the stockroom and not out on the floor!
I hope you enjoy your day!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Chicklet
Mom and I love all the beautiful Christmas pictures your sweet mommma has sent us. They are all so pretty.We sent you a message that disappeared from the computer when mom hit a wrong key. So now we will write you another one. The cats here have managed to knock down some balls from the Christmas tree and mom manage to step on one this morning getting ready for work but it was only plastic so that is not to bad. It has been cold and windy here but today the sun it out at least. Hope you and the flock have a nice day. Stay safe and warm.

Hugs
Puffin

  Hello Chicklet~~
I hope you had a wonderful day! It was pretty nice here. I am on my second toy in a week and had a great time making a lovely pile of wood at the bottom of my play cage! Mom is off tonight and tomorrow night so she took a nap and then had to go to the bank. She and Ian are giving Jennifer a new Kindle for Christmas and she wanted to use dad's account because he gets free shipping on Amazon. I think Jennifer is going to be very surprised!
I got squawked again yesterday morning and couldn't get back on until last night! It keeps happening on Sundays!! I have no idea how long it stays that way since mom had to work last night so she had to give up and go to sleep! I'm so sorry I didn't get by! I thought they took weekends off!hahahahaha I think they should take the weekends off!!
We are watching a movie while I get my notes done then it will be off to bed! I don't know why mom gets so happy about going to sleep! I'd rather stay up all night and play!
Leaving a vote and a big hug!

This is the day we remember the attack on Pearl Harbor, and our forced entry into WWll, we remember that date with solemn reverence! This is also the day that in 2007, Jenny joined our precious Bird Channel, my goodness, that seems like an eternity ago, but we have made so many wonderful friends, bird and human, but managed to make a few friends angry with us along the way! It has been a fun trip though, we wouldn't have missed it for the world! Have a great Sunday and enjoy your football games if you watch them, we are going to collect our thoughts and try to have a relaxing day, please give our love to all in your Sunday home, see ya tomorrow...

Love on this day and always, Angel Christy & our patriotic Dallas family

  Hi ya Chicklet~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Lots of cleaning and some cooking going on here. Kind of boring really but I have a new toy in the play cage to keep me occupied.
Mom put the Trans Siberian Orchestra CD on for us to listen to. She just love the Christmas Canon. She love the Canon and this version of it is very beautiful! I'm enjoying it. The new computer does not have the same music program as the old one so mom has not figured out how to get more music on her MP3 player! Ian gave mom his old IPod since he got a smart phone and it does everything the Ipod does. Now mom has to figure out how to use it! She can turn it on and off! So far that's about it!Hahahahahaha It's rather embarrassing to have a mom who is so clueless when it comes to technology!
You enjoy your day and I do hope it's perfect!

  Hi Chicklet dear, from Angel Christy
We have ordered our Christmas cards, and our sweet aunt Denise did a masterful job of putting the four of us on them, she is so good at that sort of thing! With our tree and ornaments waiting in the wings, we should have it up and decorated during the weekend! I swear our home warms up a few degrees when it is shining brightly, at least all the hearts in our home do! TGIF best of friends, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow...

I hope you had a wonderful day. It's been crazy here and I am so sorry I have not been able to get notes out like I should! I would not want you to think you are not important to me because that is not true!!
You know our dog Mandy is very old now and can no longer go up or down the stairs anymore. Mom got the wee wee pads and put them all over the balcony but Mandy has been stubborn about them! She has hip dysplasia so she tends to slip a lot. She has figured out what the pads are for at least!
When mom gets home in the mornings Mandy is so excited to see her that she just pees wherever she is! Mom has been spending a whole bunch of time mopping floors, cleaning the carpet and washing blanket and towels which has left me very little time for the BC! Mom just finished working 8 days straight too!
Mom is going to put diapers on Mandy at night now. It's easier to give her a bath everyday then it is to do all this cleaning. The warm baths seems to help her too!
Everything is just fine here. We had 3 very cold days but the clouds rolled back in today and it's warmed up! I have been busy with chewing up wood and supervising the chores! It's a nice way to spend the day!
Enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Chicklet~
I hope you are having a great day! We got to talk to dad this morning. He is in Iowa now and it's snowing there! He is at a truck stop and is going to stay there for the day. Truck drivers are only allowed to drive a certain amount of hours a day and if dad is on a road where there is an accident and he gets stuck, he will run out of hours. If he takes a break right now he gains more hours and won't have to worry about running out. He's on his way to Oklahoma. He actually told mom that the snow looked pretty! Dad usually hates snow!
Did you get more snow? We are not suppose to get any this year but we shall see. We are having lots of wind and rain but that is very normal for us!
We are getting things ready for mom to start her workweek tonight and for Ian who starts his tomorrow. Hopefully Black Friday won't be too crazy. Mom just hopes everyone has a good time.
Do they do Black Friday in Canada??? Perhaps it's just a crazy american kind of tradition. Mom is not really into shopping and since she works retail she is always working then anyway!
I know you already had Thanksgiving but I wanted to say I am thankful for your friendship and know how very blessed I am to have found such excellent friends here on the BC!

  Beautiful darling Chicklet from, Angel Christy
...just a quick note to say hello and that I am thinking about you! We are just having cold, but not so unusual for this time of the year! We hope the illiterate folks in Furguson are happy with all their looting and violence, they must have needed an excuse to get more booze & new things! We have a thought on all that, but perhaps not so appropriate for our beloved BC! Dad is prepping our turkey in the final thaw, chopped onions, celery, Emeril Lagasse turkey rub, onion & garlic powder, butter, and lots of love, a lot of work, but for dad a labor of love, don't tell his heart doctor, LOL! Have a great day dear friends, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow...

  Hi Chicklet
Puffin here and I love the bathroom to Chicklet. I love to stay in there and play and chew things up. When I disappear that is usually where I go and I like to sleep on top of the shower doors and Ceasaur my bluefront amazon buddy sleeps in there with me. My mom loved all the things your mom sent and I loved the wooden blocks with the corks in them and Ceasaur loved the coconut pieces ans he loves to shred them along with the Teils. There were so many good things in that box you sent.Thank you and your flock and your sweet mom Ellen for all are goodies.Mom has been giving me walnuts along with the macaws because the stores have the nuts in them now for Christmas. I bet you can not wait to get your beak on all the toys your mom is making for you. Have a great day.

I hope you are all having a wonderful day! It's still grey, wet and windy at my house! We have the fireplace on and it's very cozy inside! Mom tells me that if it were sunshine and warm all the time we wouldn't be able to use the fireplace!!
They had the first big snow up on the mountain today and it was a mess!! Snoqualmie pass is the main road between west and east out here and a lot of people use it. There were cars spinning all over the place! Some people didn't check the pass conditions before they went so they didn't have chains with them. Everyone who uses that road knows that you always check the pass conditions no matter what time of the year it is!
Mom is going to get the pantry straightened out today since it looks like something exploded in there!hehehehehe We have too much stuff and need to get some meals cooked. Mom only works 2 nights and then she'll be off 2 nights so we will have our Thanksgiving then. She got a ham and a turkey since they were great deals! Most stores don't do the cheap turkeys anymore but mom found one where she got the turkey for 48 cents a pound! I'm just looking forward to the corn bread! Maybe some pumpkin pie too!
You enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a hug for you!

I hope you are all having a wonderful day! I'm having fun so far!
It was stormy here all night but when we woke up this morning there was a rainbow outside the window! So very pretty and what a lovely thing to see at the start of the day! It didn't last very long but I hope all those people out in the busy morning traffic got to see it and I hope it brought a smile to their faces.
The last load of laundry is in the dryer. It's the towels mom uses on Mandy. She has become a pretty high maintenance dog lately but mom said that is to be expected with her age. She still eats like there is no tomorrow and still plays with her toys. The play time has to be gentle due to her physical limitations but she still enjoys it. Since she is 4 years past the life expectancy for her breed, we feel blessed to still have her in our lives. She and I have been together her entire life and even if I do still try to nip her if she gets too close, I love her!
Mom got a lot of fruit yesterday so I am having a fruit salad today. I got some peaches yesterday with my apple and they were good. No telling is I will decide to eat a banana today or not. Somedays I like them and others I do not! I like being contrary because that is what us birds do! It's good to keep the parronts guessing!hehehehehe
I do hope your day is just perfect! Stomping out a vote and sending hugs your way! I hope mom and the rest of the flock are all well and happy!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! Happy November!
For the 9th year in a row, no one came to trick or treat! Mom is so disappointed! Maybe next year!
Mom and the kids went to the mall in the afternoon. Mom did her walk while the kids were at Gamestop. There were a few people dressed up so that was cool!
Dad delivered locally so he got to come home over night. They went to have dinner at the Mexican restaurant down the street and everyone there was dressed up. Their waiter was dressed as Chumbly from Pawn Stars and some of the people there had the Dia de Los Muertos face painting! It was awesome! There was a lady having dinner there with her family and she was dressed as Tinkerbell! She did the costume herself and even had her hair pinned up the way Tinkerbell does! Her little girl was Cinderella but they made her take the costume off while she ate! Probably a good idea!
Thank you to every bird for the BOTD on the Calendar Page! We are so honored and appreciate it so very much!!
I hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug too!

I hope you are having a wonderful day!
The new computer is up and running. Dad put Window 8 on it so mom is scrolling around like a lost puppy!! She has pretty much figured our how to get to where she wants to go so that is all that matters. The living room still looks like we've been robbed but mom and I will be working on that today.
I left the room when dad was building it because there was just too much stuff and I was getting very upset! He shoved the old computer and monitor in front of my playcage!! That was the last straw so I went to climb around my night cage and clear the dresser off for mom! I even shoved my Hello Kitty lunch boxes off! I know it was a big help!
Mom's uncle does Ancestry research and someone sent him pictures of the graves of mom's Great Grandma and Grandpa. They are in upstate New York by Medina. Mom went there when she was a little kid but doesn't really remember much. It was very cool to see it now though.
I hope you enjoy your day! I'm off to help clean the living room up! We can't even turn the fireplace on at the moment because of all the stuff that is in front of it! It has gotten colder here in the last few days so we might actually need it!!

Finally the BC seems to be up and working, I guess we should be thankful, we sure have missed it a lot! Our thoughts and prayers go out to all our lucky birdie mommas traveling to the Parrot Palooza! It would be so nice to put a happy face to all those names we have been blogging for so many years! Have a wonderful time everybody, this weekend will go by like a beautiful flash, leaving you all with fabulous memories, take lots of pics!

I hope you are having a great day! We got the car back this morning! YAY! New transmission and an oil change and he is in great shape. Mom is going to have to remember she doesn't have to go really, really slow until he grabs 1st gear now! Felt a bit strange but we are so happy to have it done!
We got the linen closet all cleaned out and made room to store the huge package of paper towels and toilet paper. Mom also got a few cases of bottled water she is keeping in there too. There was an e-coli contamination out on Mercer Island and it closed down all the restaurants for days and everyone had to boil their water. We use a Brita filter but mom doesn't think that it will filter e-coli. She has decided to give me, Mandy and Merlin bottle water to drink just to be safe. They have no idea where the contamination came from and mom doesn't want to take the chance it might happen here. Maybe she is just being too paranoid but she would rather be safe than sorry!
Kaji is only 11 away from his 10K so he will be there very soon. The 10k page is ready for a party so please stop on by tomorrow and congratulate him and grab some food!

  Hello my almond munching friend-from Angel Christy
Happy ToosDay my darling Chicklet, it is much cooler today, but it feels so good! Dad's VA visit went better than he could have wished for, the right leg is normal, BP is great, no infection, potassium levels back to normal, but the left leg is coming along more slowly! His reward is yet another VA visit next week, oh joy! Today dad's best friend is coming over to help us set up our new phone, is not an inexpensive one but dad will be able to take pictures and send them to friends, my dad is a real computer nerd, LOL!

  Hello Chicklet~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!! We are playing
"Where in the World is the computer's cursor?"hahahahaha
It's a very fun game and when the cursor vanishes you have to wait for a few seconds to find it! Mom should market it to all computer users! I'm sure there are lots of people out there who would love to sit around and wait for that cursor to re-appear! Okay, so you would need a lot of patience to play this game and it might not be for everyone!
They are changing out the flags in front of our building today. There are 8 of them, 4 on each side of the driveway. The ones up there are blue and green with red tulips but since it's Autumn they are putting up gold ones and burgundy ones with gold stripes. They are very nice looking but I think I like the tulips better. I guess the tulip flags will be back in the spring.
They are also cleaning the vents on the roof over at the office building so I've been switching back and forth watching the vent cleaning and the flags. It's like a double feature at the movies!hehehehehe
Enjoy your day! Leaving an Autumn hug and a vote too!
Love you ~ Sugar

I hope you are having a great day! It's starting out cool and misty here! Just the way it should be!
I love your fall pictures! Just beautiful!!
Only 2 more days until the fair is over down in town! It's really fun but there is way too much traffic down there during the fair time. My skin sister's boss went yesterday and brought back a whole bag of fair scones for us! YUMMY! Mom has the mix so we can make more at another time. They have raspberry jam in them!
Can you believe that it is the last day of summer?? I had a nice summer but I just love Autumn. Pretty colors and really yummy squash! Halloween too! Guess I had better start thinking about a costume!
I hope your day is just perfect!

  Hi Chicklet sweetie!
I want to thank everybirdy for their prayers! Mila's family is truly grateful! We all know the power of prayer is a powerful thing...but we are all in shock over little Mila's progress. She had brain surgery 7:30am on Friday. When the surgeons went in, they discovered that some of what was tumor, was actually scar tissue from her surgery lastyyear, & sort of made a pocket that the larger tumor was sitting in. They were able to ENTIRELY remove BOTH tumors! On Saturday, she was moved to a regular room & they had her up walking! On Sunday, less than 48hrs upon completion of her surgery, MILA WAS SENT HOME...TRULY A MIRACLE!!!
Mila's family would still appreciate ur prayers. Since this cancer came back so quickly & aggressively, doctors are going to treat it very aggressively with chemo & radiation. Mila is doing wonderfullly! She has to take it easy, but she's up & playing with all of her princess toys! She'll walk up to u, give u a hug & tell u that she has a boo-boo & that herhhead hurts. It's truly amazing & miraculous! All things are possible with God!
Love from
TiaMaria & Mom Sandy

  Hello Chicklet~~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's very pretty here today and I've been enjoying myself.
Nothing exciting going on unless you find laundry exciting. I don't! I do like climbing into the basket of towels and assisting mom in folding them. I'm actually very good at it! For some reason everyone thinks I should stay away from their clothes! I think they think I am going to chew them up!
We are still having computer problems but it's not the new stuff that got installed the other day. Mom is still trying to figure it all out but so far today we have had to restart 4 times. It is not easy to get notes out when the thing keeps freezing up but I do want you to know that I think about you everyday and I hope to be able to spend more time on notes when the computer is cooperating!
How is your mom doing? Mom and I both think about you guys all the time and we really do hope all is well. I hope all is well with you too! I can imagine it must be hard to have those lovely almonds rationed!
Enjoy the day and I hope it's just perfect!
Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Chicklet sweetie
Hi everybirdy!
Tia here, sorry I haven't been around in quite awhile, sooooo much has been going on, I'll let u know all about it. Mom FINALLY unpacked the box that contained her notebook that has everybirdy's page #s! Today, mom & I ask for ur prayers.

A good friend of mom's has an adorable 4 yr old daughter, Mila. The past 14 months have been a horrific nightmare for Dawn, Mila's mother. Mila was born with Li Fraumeni Syndrome, which is an EXTREMELY RARE genetic condition. Certain receptors shut off & leaves that person very prone to cancer. Last summer, Mila began acting strangely...bobbing her head around, running into things, suddenly falling down & grabbing her head & screaming. Her pediatrician immediately ordered a brain MRI. Dawnh& Neil were devastated to learn that their precious 3 yr old daughter had Choroid Plexus Carcinoma, an EXTREMELY RARE & very aggressive brain cancer. Mila had brain surgery 3 days later. It was touch & go for the 1st week, they had to restart her heart 4 times. Miraculously, she made it thru, although she spent 3 months in intensive care. She was released fromthe hospital 2 days before Christmas...a true Christmas miracle...Mila had ABSOLUTELY NO mental deficit! Since then, she must have an MRI every 3 months. All of them had been perfectly spotless - until her MRI last week.

Mila now has 2 aggressive tumors - the larger one, the size of a small navel orange, & the other is a bit larger than a golfball. The larger one is in the same spot as the one removed last year, but it is tangled in her nerves & has been deemed inoperable. She will once again have to endure chemotherapy & this time start radiation. The smaller tumor will be removed. I just spoke to her mom Dawn, they will be leaving for Children's Hosp in Pittsburgh in a couple hrs. Mila will be having brain surgery tomorrow morning at 7:30am. to remove the smaller tumor & hopefully be able to remove part at least part of the larger one. We are all heartbroken that this precious little girl hasto go thru tthis again. I hope all our dear friends will say a special prayer for Mila, that God in Heaven will once again restore her health! Thank you my dear friends & God Bless u all.
Love
TiaMaria & mom Sandy

  Hi Chicklet
We have finally arrived at Monday once more. It's hard to realize one week is already gone on my BOTM campaign. Today we will take a short stop-over in Costa Rica to visit some good friends of mine and see what they have been busily working on. Being a Macaw this is one subject that is near and dear to my heart. The Ara Project. The Ara Project is a Costa Rican non-profit organization that’s breeds, for the sole purpose of release into the wild, endangered Scarlet & Great Green Macaws. With only 2000 Scarlet Macaws left in Costa Rica and only around 2500 Great Green Macaws ( also known as Buffon's or Military) left in the world the Ara Project is proving "breeding for release" to be a valuable tool to prevent further declines in the numbers or even extinction of these magnificent birds. They work in conjunction with MINAET (Costa Rican Ministry of Environment, Energy & Telecommunications).
The Great Green or Military(Buffon's) Macaw is endangered, and has been one of the key elements in the proposal for the formation of a new National Park in Costa Rica, Maquenque National Park. Already significant parts of the bird's existing habitat is covered by Nature reserves and other conservation projects. Project Ara is working hand in hand with locals to reestablish a strong breeding pool of wild Macaws with the end result to stop and reverse it's rapid decline.

The Ara Project incorporates breeding techniques and aviary management in order to carry out controlled release programs in conjunction with Costa Rican wildlife laws imposed by MINAET. The Ara Project has released a total of 80 Scarlet Macaws on its release sites. The Ara Project aimed to started their Great Green Macaw reintroduction program in 2011. This will be Costa Rica's and the world's first official reintroduction of the species. To date having released a number of both species
In the 80's retired American couple Margot and Richard Frisius started a licensed zoological park to take care of parrots confiscated by the government or disowned by private owners. In 1992 they officially started a breeding program to participate in macaw conservation, resulting in the establishment of the non-profit organization formerly known as "Amigos de las Aves" (Friends of the Birds). Over the years they created what has become the biggest collection of Great Green Macaws in captivity and, upon acquiring a breeding stock of sufficient genetic diversity, a successful Scarlet Macaw reintroduction program.

  Hi Chicklet
Happy Sunday to all my BC friends. Zeena here with a look at a species of bird, well reputed as THE best talker and mimicker. Once abundantly available at low prices, today an often difficult to find and much costly addition to ones Flockily. Momma Deb says as a child she recalls seeing a number of these interesting, entertaining birds kept in Pet Stores, and businesses. She has been searching for one for over ten years and only encounter one at a very costly price.
The Mynah, the loved and disliked Clown of the avian world.
The Common Myna (Acridotheres tristis), sometimes spelled Mynah, also sometimes known as "Indian Myna", is a member of the family Sturnidae (starlings and mynas) native to Asia. An omnivorous open woodland bird with a strong territorial instinct, the Myna has adapted extremely well to urban environments.The Common Myna is an important motif in Indian culture and appears both in Sanskrit and Prakrit literature. "Myna" is derived from the Hindi language maina which itself is derived from Sanskrit madana.

The range of the Common Myna is increasing at such a rapid rate that in 2000 the IUCN Species Survival Commission declared it one of the world's most invasive species and one of only three birds in the top 100 species that pose an impact to biodiversity, agriculture and human interests. In particular, the species poses a serious threat to the ecosystems of Australia where it was named "The Most Important Pest/Problem".

Mynahs are a lively, confident, aggressive, and noisy bird. It is friendly and perky, and the large flocks that gather at roosting time are usually raucous and grouchy. As pets they have many redeeming qualities including an inmate ability to mimic sounds, whistles and human speech. Once quite common in the pet trade, they now are difficult to locate. The Greater and Lesser Hill Mynahs are most thought of when imaging a Mynah Bird. Their clownish, outgoing personalities winning many a fan in years past.

Mynah's eat a mixture of specially formulated insect mash and fresh foods. Like the Lories, they have watery, odorous droppings, making them difficult to maintain in a home environment. those who endure the mess speak lovingly of their companions who seem to adore children, and adults alike. Daily cage washing, bathing and out of cage time are mandatory for good health. Momma Deb recalls that in her childhood most Mynah's were caged in small cramped cages,eating a diet of sunflower seeds and fruit. Thus living a miserable, short life. As advances came, it was found that Mynah's must have a balanced, more natural diet, and lots of room to move around in their cages. Bonded pairs breed readily in captivity. Babies that are hand-reared average $1200 to 1500 each when available. Bali Mynah's are rare and available to collectors only.

I wish to thank all my friends here on C for their daily support, and words of encouragement.

  Hi Chicklet
Good afternoon my dear BC friends, Zeena here with today's BOTM blog. We will once more make a stop in South American to visit one of natures very interesting and unique inhabitants. Our host is one of aviculture's beautiful, and unusual songbirds. The Green Oropendola. The Green Oropendola is of exclusively Amazonian distribution.The Green Oropendola (Psarocolius viridis) is generally common in its wooded habitats that are found in the Amazon and Guianas of South America; specifically Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Peru, Suriname, and Venezuela. Largely pale green above, the posterior underparts and rump are chestnut, and the tail is largely yellow except for the central rectrices. The bill is green basally, becoming red towards the tip, and the skin around the eyes and lores is pink. Males and females are similar in plumage, but the latter sex is substantially smaller. Like most oropendolas, this species breeds in colonies, usually of five to ten pairs, and constructing a hanging ‘basket’ nest of woven plant fibers. The species’ displays are similar to those of the Crested Oropendola (Psarocolius decumanus).
Related common species include such song-birds as the Meadow Lark, Bobo-Link and Bullock's Oriole to name but a few.
The Green Oropendola eats a diet of fresh fruits, insects, mynah bird food and nectar in captivity. An active, high energy species these birds require a large, long flight to maintain them in good condition. Somewhat difficult to breed, these beautiful birds require an aviary suitable to house a number of mature pairs to have any success in nesting and rearing offspring. Hand reared babies of the Green Oropendola are occasionally available but do not tend to retain tameness once weaned. In the wild they typically nest in colonies similarly to Quaker Parrots, building their hanging basket-like nests in a common tree. Captive breeding is seeing an increase in successful clutches being raised to fledging and adulthood.
These are definitely not a species for the beginner avicultarist, and their pricy purchase costs in excess of $850.00US each leaves them to the more well off and experienced collectors. Their song is soft and melodious, a pleasure to listen to. Their call is often described as flute-like and low.
Tomorrow we will visit with a wonderful, entertaining species of bird, that once filled many living rooms, but today is rare both in captivity and their wild habitat.
I wish to thank all my many friends for their loving support on my quest to be August's BOTM. I couldn't make it without all of you.
love and scritches

  Hi Chicklet
Hello everybird, Zeena here with today's BOTM blog. First I wish all my US friends a happy and safe 4th of July Holiday. It is also the day that my little fister Little Angel will marry her beloved Dixie. Their wedding will take place on the BC Castle page number 239094. All are invited to join these two "love-birds" this evening at 6PM Eastern Time as they share their vows of love. The reception will follow on the same page. Today we will take a peek into a few nesting boxes around the world and see what we find. Come on, let's be very quiet, as we explore the many new Blue and Gold Macaw mutations .Color Mutations are considered "pure" birds. They occur in nature, although rarely and if they do, they often don't survive long, if the "new color" is too vibrant and they are easily visible by predators.

Color mutations in captivity are perpetuated by breeding like colored birds to like colored birds (of two birds that carry the color gene). The resultant offspring will often be the color that is desired. Hybrids are the crossing of two species, whereas mutations occur spontaneously.

Most of us know the Blue and Yellow Macaw. Many of us own one or more, however there are some really eggciting new mutations I'd like us to take a look at. We are most familiar with the typical blue and Gold. However there is a larger variant from Bolivia called the Bolivian Blue and Gold Macaw. The Bolivian variety is distinguished by its larger size and its coloring. On all these Macaws the colors are vibrant, but the Bolivian has more of a true blue rather than the teal blue seen in the average Blue and Gold. They all share the same wonderful personality and characteristics.

The Bolivian Blue and Gold Macaw is a variant originating only in Bolivia. It looks just like the typical Blue and Gold, however, it is much larger. A mutation of the Blue and Gold Macaw has also been reported where the yellow coloring is absent creating a blue and white bird. Although seldom seen or available there are many new mutations being bred. Many sell for over $50,0US each.
Momma Deb told me she would love to have one of each, they are so beautiful, I am certain you will have to agree.

  Hi Chicklet
Hello everybirdie. Zeena here with today's Rainforest findings. I wish to thank everyone for their awesome support and hope you will enjoy today's feature species.
The Harpy Eagle is a majestic shadow that silently soars above the Rainforest canopy. Once common, and plentiful, today they rest on the brink of extinction. Previously a common sight in Brazil, the Harpy Eagle has become as rare as seeing a unicorn would be. Hunted to near extinction for their feathers, sport and out of fear and concern for their livestock, these awesome giants of the Raptor world are rapidly disappearing. These birds terrify hapless animals that forage in the shifting sunlight of the high canopy. Harpy eagle is the largest and the most powerful raptor throughout America. They belong to the family of accipitridae. American harpy eagle typically inhabits lowland rainforests but are disappearing from much of its range due to habitat loss and it almost extirpated in Central America.
The Harpy Eagle weighs in at 20 to 27 pounds for a hen and 12 to 17 pounds for a male, standing between 40 and 60 inches in length, sporting 5 to 7 inch talons it is a formidable predator dining on a diet consisting largely of sloth and moneys, with other animals making up the balance. In flight the Harpy flies on strong 5 to 7 foot wide spans, silent and watchful for a meal below in the dense Rain Forest canopy.
With wide spread clear-cutting and man's guns, the Harpy Eagle is soon going to be gone from the wild habitat it once claimed. Nesting in tree top nests, the single chick remains with the parents for up to two years. Pairs mate for life thus making it harder to rebuild endangered populations. Many Harpy Eagles have be poached for the private collector market relentlessly, with current breeding programs being established to help stave off their total elimination. Used by Bird of Prey enthusiasts and trained to hunt on command. Many die from lack of proper diet, and education of would be owners. New Government regulations being in place it is hoped to make owning Harpy Eagles a more difficult objective. Would be owners now have to finish a Government regulated Raptors training program which entails sixteen to eighteen months apprenticeship training in care, training and husbandry.
Tomorrow we will take a closer look at a new and exciting find that is shaking the bird community. Discovered in a nestbox, this unusual baby has enthusiasts in awe.
A quick reminder that on Friday July 4th my fister LITTLE ANGEL THRIFT will wed the handsome Mr Dixie Adler at the BC Castle page number 239094

  Hi Chicklet
Hello everybirdie, Zeena here with today's BOTM post. As we land in Brazil, we are cautioned to be very quiet so we don't disturb the Macaws. SHhhhhh!

The Spix's Macaw (Cyanopsitta spixii), also known as the Little Blue Macaw, is a macaw native to Brazil.First discovered by German naturalist Georg Marcgrave, when he was working in the State of Pernambuco, Brazil in 1638 and it is named for German naturalist Johann Baptist von Spix, who collected a specimen in 1819 on the bank of the Rio São Francisco in northeast Bahia in Brazil.
The bird is a medium size parrot weighing about 300 grams (0.66 lb), smaller than most of the large macaws. Its plumage is various shades of blue, with a grey-blue head, light blue underparts, and vivid blue upperparts. Males and females are identical in appearance, the females being a little smaller on average. The Spix Macaw is reported to be extinct in the wild, with the disappearance of one last single male in 2000. All remaining Spix Macaws are now kept in several private breeding programs without the world. Due to their extremely small numbers none are available for public viewing. The largest colony of approximately 40 birds is currently owned by an Arab sheik who has been working on breeding these beautiful birds with the final hope that they will be able to be released into their former remaining habitat.
The Spix Macaws were destroyed in the wild by excessive deforestation and hunting. The colonies were ruthlessly killed, poached for the pet trade and shot for pure sport until they had been eliminated in their territory. The introduction of predators into their habitat, including rats, monkeys and feral cats also aided the quick decline in wild Spix populations. In recent years there have been isolated reports of Spix Macaws in land in protected, isolated locations but this has not been publicly verified, although it possibly might be true, to protect what remaining wild pairs there are.
A sad note, this past Wednesday PRESLEY, the second to last known wild-born member of the species flew to the Rainbow Bridge after a brief illness. Presley had been kept as a pet in the USA for years, but was returned to Brazil in 2008. He left no progeny. He was 40 years old at his death.
Presley's death is a blow to conservation efforts in both a symbolic and literal sense. Critically endangered, these native Brazilian birds (Cyanopsitta spixii) are believed to be extinct in the wild. Decades of deforestation and rampant wildlife trafficking have besieged the medium-size macaws, who also ended up having to compete for nest space with introduced Africanized honeybees.
Now with fewer then 100 living specimens, most closely related, the Spix Macaws future hangs in the balance. This spring heralded in the hatching of 5 babies, 3 of which were due to artificial insemination. Perhaps someday our grandchildren will be able to see the wild Spixs fly free once more.

I hope you are having a fun day! It's still cloudy and rainy here but then it wouldn't be a holiday weekend if it wasn't rainy!Hahahahahahaha
Mom is working her regular schedule so we are getting things ready for her to start her work week tonight. I hear that the cages are going to be cleaned too so I'm not too happy about that. My night cage gets put into mom's shower so I don't ever see that happen. I would get to cranky if I had to see that!
Mom and Ian went to see X-Men yesterday and really enjoyed it. Jennifer didn't want to see it so she hung out with me! We watched Project Runway repeats and it was awful! The snacks were good though.
The family went over to a new Mexican restaurant last night for dinner. Mom said is was okay but not worth the money. They don't go out to eat much so when they do they like to go somewhere spectacular!
The voting for Sam 212680 to benefit Iowa Parrot Rescue starts at 12am ESt tonight! I know I can count on you for a vote!
Enjoy the day and I hope it is just perfect!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar
