Hi! My name is Poppy- Goodbye Joey my love

I am a Normal grey Cockatiel from Nelson, BC.

Pop-a-do, Pop-Tart

6 years old   F

Normal grey Cockatiel

I love millet, spinach, nutriberries and seeds. I will try anything once.

I love to follow Joey around wherever he goes. I also love to hang out on the climbing tree and cagetops or pillage and destroy things in Sunny's cage.

I don't like people getting too near my cage. I am very shy. I hate diets!

She lets me out and spoils me with all sorts of 'tiel desirables! She is also very gentle with me and never asks me to do more than I am comfortable with. I was terrified of people when she first bought me and I am now comfortable sitting on her hand and searching for treats in her fingers. I am facinated how she scratches Sunny's head. Maybe someday, when I am ready, I'll let her scratch mine...

I am over zealous with egg laying and have to be on a special diet to curb my hormones to avoid lupron shots. I am also an escape artist! I figured out how to slide up my feeder doors and get out. My pet human thought she was smart and put quick links on them to keep me in. I merely undid them and escaped again! She tightened them really hard this time and said that if I did it again, she would put little pad-locks on my feeder doors. I'm still working on it- CLANK CLANK....

If you can't rule the roost, rule the rooster. I absolutely love Joey!.

  Hi Poppy
Aww that is great you all got treats celebrating Jazz house hold joining year event. It got colder here too today.
Mom washed a few clothes this morning but most went in the dryer since its so cold here. Mom says it doesn’t look like any warm up even next week either. Guess that means I wont be outside for a while if at all. I am hoping the Indian summer shows up at least. “You know you’re a bird person when your pockets contain more almonds then money.” Leaving a vote for you my friend… Gus (RIP Chi chi)

That is good the weather is so nice there. It has cooled down here a bit but Friday is suppose to get lots colder.
There are a few bunnies around here and dad feeds them so they stick close by. One is a baby and so cute to see him stretched out in the shade in the grass just relaxing. Yesterday dad looked out and saw a little hawk in the tree so he went out and chased that hawk away cause he figured he was going to have that little rabbit for a snack! Good dad watches out for them. “You know you’re a bird person when your pockets contain more almonds then money.” Leaving a vote for you my friend… Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Poppy
Mom tried to teach me about crocheting but you know how busy us fids are and I sure have no time to learn that with fixing my feathers and everything I have to do. It would probably interfere with my naptime too.LOL
Guess mom is done flying around for a while cause today she went to get her feathers cut. They were getting rally long and mom said they were getting all tangled up in the curling iron. When she got home she disappeared for a good while and when I yelled for her she would yell back. Finally when she came out she had curls again so guess she gave herself another perm. “A real friend tells you when you have bird food on your beak” Leaving a vote for you…Hugs~~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Polly
Mom has been working on an afghan. Mom said the summer is flying by so fast and pretty soon her sister will be leaving again for the winter to stay in Arizona. I bet she gets tired of going back and forth on the road each year and mom often wonders how much longer they will do it. Mom got some cleaning done here this morning and then she met up with her sister and they sat and talked a long time and had a late lunch together. Dad was home most of the afternoon but I gave mom the cold shoulder and didn’t come out much after she came home either. Being so stubborn though I missed going in while mom took her shower but I yelled loudly till she came back out. “A real friend tells you when you have bird food on your beak” Leaving a vote for you…Hugs~~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

It cooled down here a bit now and not as humid so that is good. Even though it was humid yesterday I still got my sunbath a bit after mom got home from grocery shopping. Mom had to pull a few more rows out of her stitching and said she will be glad she changes colors on it again and might be easier to keep track then too. “A real friend tells you when you have bird food on your beak” Leaving a vote for you…Hugs~~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

I love food and mom feels bad cause I cant eat alot of the things but she says if I could I would be tipping the scales for sure LOL
Mom went for groceries today and she said the list was a bit hard to read it since I had gotten hold of it the one day. Since the fruit stand is now closed for the winter mom was back pretty quick so that was good but miss the good fruit like only the fruit stand has. Mom did get some things though but know our pickens will be slim as winter comes closer. “A real friend tells you when you have bird food on your beak” Leaving a vote for you…Hugs~~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

V4U today. Yes, long time no squawk for us, too. LOL :) Glad to hear that your feet are healed. I bet that you can get around even faster now to look for the crumbs. I wish we had some of your fall weather. It's still as hot and as humid as can be here. Have a good day. From, Marigold

  Hi Poppy
Know what you mean about that~~ we sure miss Chi chi alot also. At first mom thought about getting another fid but think now she has decided to just have me so that is ok too. It is nice your mom gave you all a toy with Joeys name on it to remember him by...he was a nice fid and a good friend too.
Everyone that knows me knows that mom is my favorite person in our house. I tolerate dad and he is ok when mom isn’t here but that is about the extent of it. Well every evening dad has his second dinner as mom calls it and always warms something up that is in the frig. Dad is one of those people that eats a lot but stays slim..mom says it drives her nuts he can do that LOL. He usually does this after I go to bed which is fine but if he makes something before that I become his busom buddy but mom says its not usually food I can eat but dad does share the things that are ok for me. Guess he isn’t too bad after all. “A real friend tells you when you have bird food on your beak? Leaving a vote for you…Hugs~~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

V4U today. We finally saw our first hummingbird last weekend, and we've been seeing the same hummingbird every day since. We only see one so far, but maybe there are more. The mockingbird babies are getting so big. They scamper in and out of the bushes. Wishing you a nice day. From, Marigold

V4U today. There's some happy news for the mockingbird family. We see both the mom and dad mockingbird flying in and out of the nest all day long. The babies are getting big, they are fully feathered and about ready to leave the nest. There is a picture of the babies in their nest on Mayo's page. Wishing you a nice day. :) From, Marigold

  Hi Poppy
V4U today. Nothing new here, just busy as usual. We've been having both rainy and sunny days. The heat and humidity have been something else. The baby mockingbird eggs hatched and the baby mockingbirds are about 4 days old now. The mockingbird mom built the nest so that twigs covered the front part of the nest. We sure hope that none of the predator birds get to that nest like they did the robins nest. So far so good. From, Marigold

  Hi Poppy
V4U today. We've had stormy weather along with tornado watches on and off since the weekend. It's still raining heavily right now, almost 5 days in a row of rain and storms. The little wrens didn't make it. A predator bird got to the nest. The nest was so well hidden inside of the rose tree, so the bird must have been a strong and bold one. Same thing happened to our neighbors mockingbird nest just a few weeks prior. Thankfully the robins made it and flew off on their own. Wishing you a nice day. From, Marigold

  Hi Poppy
V4U today. Well, the 3 wren eggs haven't hatched yet, should be any day now. The mommy wren is a busy bee, she sits on the eggs all day long, but we do see her fly in and out from time to time. More nests have popped up around our yard, it's neat to see the birds building the nests, each one is a little different. This morning a robin had a whole beak full of straw, and it was really cute to see. Have a good weekend. From, Marigold

V4U today. Our rainy and cold weather left, and it's as hot and humid as can be. We'll take it though. Anything is better than that long cold winter we had. I hope we have a nice long summer with not too much humidity and no mosquitoes and wasps. LOL :) From, Marigold

V4U today. Well, this is day 4 of nonstop heavy rain for us. The chilly weather returned as well. Mom put the hummingbird feeder out 2 days ago, but still no sight of hummingbirds, just plenty of wasps. LOL :) We usually don't see the first hummingbirds till late May or early June so it will probably be a few weeks yet. Have a good day. From, Marigold

V4U today. We've been getting lots and lots of rain here. It's good for the flowers and roses so no complaints. Our yard is just filled with robins. Saw some wrens and finches flying around too. The crepe myrtle is finally bouncing back after winter. Seems like the past few winters have been exceptionally colder than normal. We're enjoying the springtime weather and looking forward to a warm and sunny summer. Have a good day. From, Marigold

V4U today. Our two clearance lilacs took, so maybe in a few years we'll see some flowers on them, too. Right now they are each about 8" tall and look like two sets of sticks with a few buds popping out. LOL :) Wishing you a nice weekend. From, Marigold

V4U today. Nothing new here, just been super busy. Since the warmer weather is back so are all of the lawn and garden chores along with keeping up with everything else besides. The last few days have been so warm, and it seems like we'll have to turn the air conditioner on pretty soon if it stays like this. For now the windows are open, and it's nice hearing the wild birds chirping outside. Our flock chirps back to them. Wishing you a nice day. From, Marigold

  Hi Poppy
V4U today. Guess what? We bought two clearance lilacs. One is white and the other is a pink and white blend. They were in pretty bad shape, still in their bare root packages, but they did have some green leaves so they were worth taking a chance on. They already look better after being planted and watered so hopefully they will make it. :) It will probably take a few years before they flower, right now they look like little twigs with a few leaves. LOL :) Have a good weekend. From, Marigold

V4U today. We had a really nice Easter and hope that you did, too. And as usual, the day went by way too fast. The lamb cake turned out nice and everyone liked how it had a little extra vanilla flavoring. Everyone brought something they cooked or baked and there was plenty of food. Our weather seems to be staying nice now, so I think the cold wintry days are finally behind us. Wishing you a nice day. From, Marigold

  Hi Poppy
V4U today. Yesterday mom got the lamb cake baked, so that's done. Still lots more cooking and baking to do yet. This is kind of funny. For over a month now there are a pair of buzzards that perch on the neighbor's roof towards the end of our block. They preen each other and are a couple for sure. They fly together then fly back to the roof to perch again. It's kind of cute even though they aren't cute birds. LOL :) I am glad the buzzards didn't pick our roof to perch on, let's just say that the neighbor's roof could use a cleaning. LOL :) Wishing you a nice day. From, Marigold

V4U today. We're not so sure that spring is really here yet. Seems like winter really wants to hang on and doesn't want to leave. We hear that our weekend weather might be warmer but rainy, so we are hoping that it's true. Even rain is better than snow and cold. Been seeing lots of robins and cardinals flying around the yard. Nesting time again. Sure wish it was warmer and sunny though. Have a good day. From, Marigold

The good news is that our lilac that hasn't re-bloomed in a few years has tiny purple flower clusters forming! It will be neat when the flowers open. The crepe myrtle still looks dormant from winter, it's slow in bouncing back this year. Have a good day. From, Marigold

V4U today. Well, it looks like our clearance amaryllis is going to be red. The bud has not opened just yet, but there are hints of red showing which means it's probably a Red Lion. Mom's happy about that because the other two clearance amaryllis she bought are both Apple Blossom, which is the pink and white blend. We're supposed to get lots of rain soon. Have a good day.

I am out posting todays activaties at the castle.

Once again Queen Ms BBs big heavy lift shuttle appears above the new tower at the castle.

There is a big silver dome hanging under it on cables. BB slowly lowers the dome on to the tower. Thunk!! It is on the tower & the BC Consolidated Construction Co. (CCC. Older humans may remember this as standing for Civilian Conservation Core.) starts bolting it in place. Some of the workers begin hooking up the power cables & the ‘putter tecks download programs into the big new ‘putters.

There will be a grand opening of the new addition I made to the castle on Sun. Every birde is invited to join in at the castle page #239094 around 5 PM.

V4U today. You never know. So far our Easter decorations are supposed to be out in March, but if February is as cold as January has been, they might be out a little earlier. LOL :) Mom got an amaryllis for .25 cents on the clearance pile. She does not know what color the flowers will be, so it will be a fun surprise when it blooms. Her guess is Apple Blossom, but it could be a Red Lion or a Minerva, too. Have a good day. From, Marigold
