On June 26th, 2005, me and my cousin walked into the Augusta Petco. We were going to get a budgie for my cousin, who at the time was living with me. We went into the aviary and looked at the budgies. I thought that one of the green ones would be cool, but she said no, and that she wanted the little blue and white one that was falling asleep on his perch. She made a perfectly good choice!

Spirit was my cousin's pet until she moved out in 2007. She didn't want to bring him with her, so he fell into my hands. I'll admit, I didn't take good care of him at first. He had been somewhat hand trained, but I didn't handle him at all so he quickly lost trust with hands. In 2009, I realized that I need to take good care of this precious life, who was now mine. I found that Spirit is a bright, comical joy who I couldn't love more nor be more proud of!

Hi! My name is Spirit ♥

I am an American Parakeet from West Gardiner, ME.

Mister Spirit, buddy, S.C. and SP

10 years old   M

American Parakeet

He has tried peas, green beans, bananas, millet spray, mandarin oranges, cucumbers, apples, strawberries, corn, carrots, french fries, bread, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and pasta. Through trial and error, I have found that his definite favorites are (in no specific order), corn, carrots, strawberries, millet spray and apples.

Perch beside his ring toy.

Loud noises, sudden movements, getting his toenails clipped.

She loves me very, very much!

He likes pretending to be a cockatoo (fluffs up the feathers on his head, pins his eyes and makes lots of noise!), his favorite music genre is Hip Hop, he tends to like Soulja Boy, he used to treat his mirror like his mate, he used to be obsessed with his linked-ring toy until I got him a new one! He's moody and stubborn..

Spirit is one of four budgies I own.

.** Murphy, a three year old yellow budgie who came from a close friend of mine who I used to work with. She didn't have the time or patience for the birds, and was looking to rehome them. I got them August 2013.

.** Max, a two year old light blue budgie with a yellow face, who came with Murphy.

.** Lambert, a two year old a dark blue budgie who I took in from a close friend of mine who was moving and couldn't bring the bird along with him. I got him September 2014.

  Hi Mr Spirit!
We totally get the depression thing here...also the out-of-work thing. While one Mom is retired, the other is much younger and has a spotty work she's gotten retrained and has her first job in the new field (after more than a year looking) and it's turning out to be not so good after all. Sigh. So we don't know how long that'll all last.

Tooth passing of course put us all in the dumps. We try hard, but we are not the cuddle bunnies Tooth was...we will get close to the humans, but not land on them unless we're totally freaked out and confused. So there's a big gap in Mom's heart. She'd like another p'let, but right now we have three cages full of finches, plus us two, so Mom is saying no more for now.

If your two doorways are narrow enough, your Mom could try getting shower curtain tension rods and hanging curtains from them when you all are out. The advantage there is that it's easy to take them down when you don't want them, or you can leave them and just push them aside. Just a thought....

Hugs to you all....hope the longer days bring some sunlight to Mom's heart...

Dad put the Happy Hut back in my cage. He took it out when I was having my behavior problems a couple months ago. We're trying it back in - I was so happy to be sleeping in my wonderful hut.
Great to have it back, at least for now.
Dad is having a BluRay Cinema Day here. Friends don't own BluRay Players, so they're coming over to see a movie or two in his BluRay collection.

I'm sure I'll get some snacks from them today.

  Hi Spirit

The plants in your neighborhood can be a big help to nesting birds! Grasses and weeds might be used to build the nest, and having varied habitat in your yard or local park is really important for birds to be able to nest and reproduce successfully, since some birds like to build in bushes, some in small trees, some near the water, some on the ground, some in tall trees, and so on.
Many plants and flowers provide fruit that birds use to feed themselves and their babies. Cedar Waxwings, for example, nest much later in the summer than other birds because they like to eat fruit, and it is more likely that fruit will be ripe later in summer.

All birds need water, both to drink and to keep themselves clean. If you put a birdbath, or even a small shallow container of water, out in your yard, you will probably attract birds! Keep it clean and provide some small stones for them to perch on so they don’t get into deep water.
When female birds are laying eggs, they need more calcium to create strong shells that will protect their young. What’s the best source of calcium? Broken-up eggshells from the eggs in your refrigerator work just fine! After rinsing any yolk residue out of the shells, crush them in a tray and see if the birds come pick them up and carry them away. Some birds use clay or grit to obtain their calcium from their natural environment. Birds also like to collect feathers to line their nests, so you can start a collection of feathers you’ve found outdoors and put them all out one day to watch them get carried away for re-use!

  hi Spirit
FIRST DAY OF SPRING: its snowing at our house
A sure signs that spring is on the way is the return of the migratory birds. : One morning, the bushes and trees around you are suddenly filled with singing birds that were not there just the day before. They have arrived during the night, following a combination of celestial (by the stars) and magnetic cues that are part of their genetic heritage.
These birds may have flown thousands of miles to reach your yard, after spending the North American winter in Mexico, Central America, or South America, where the days remain warm and food is plentiful during our cold season.Many of the birds we consider "our birds," in north america, actually spend less than half of their lives here. They move north as the snow melts and raise young on the plentiful supplies of insects that are abundant only during the long warm days of our late spring and summer. At the end of the breeding season, usually in late summer or fall, they move south again, most of them following only their instincts to reach the traditional "winter" home of their species.

The spring migration, for each species is a specific, optimal time when the birds need to arrive in their breeding areas. The strongest males arrive first and stake out the prime territories, often in the same location where they nested the previous year. When females arrive, they select the males that occupy the best habitats for raising young. The pair must then construct a nest, incubate eggs, and raise their brood in the short period before it is time to start the journey back to the wintering range.

In the last 20 years, many species are arriving earlier, and a significant number of species are also shifting farther to the north. Why? Scientists now believe that climate change caused by the buildup of greenhouse gases is disrupting the timing of migration and sending some species farther north in search of insects.
There has been an alarming decline in the populations of many migratory bird species. This is a result of several converging factors. Species that depend on unbroken forests in their North American breeding range are suffering because of forest fragmentation. The same species face additional threats south of the U.S. border, where logging and slash-and-burn agriculture are rapidly destroying thousands of acres of their habitats each day. Much research has focused on the lives these birds lead during their stay to the south , how they interact with nonmigratory resident species and how the habitat changes taking place in southern forests might affect the migrants.

Hey Handsome! Well, spring starts tomorrow, and we're supposed to get 4 or 5 inches of snow! Not Fair, I say.
Mom's class on baby mammals went well last night, it lasted for about 2 1/2 hours, which is typical. There were a lot of volunteers there. Mom loved when Jill was talking about baby bunnies, she said she could see people shaking their heads and saying they'd never feed them. The reason is that baby bunnies get tube fed, and it's pretty tricky. Mom knows how to do it, but only does it in a pinch.
Today there were 2 middle school tours on evolution at the museum. During the first one a fire alarm went off, so everyone had to vacate the building. It took over a half hour of standing in the cold before they were allowed back inside. As a result, the tour was extended for that time, and they picked up the second tour a half hour late. That was fine, because they hadn't finished their lunch yet when the alarm went off. What was refreshing to mom is that the kids had a real grasp of evolution and deep time! For middle school kids, they were pretty interested and engaged. She got to show off her 380 million year old ammonite, too, which is always fun. (By the way, it's from New York.)
I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Spirit
What Can We Do to Save the Bees?
1) Garden Organically – Honeybees are very susceptible to pesticides and insecticides. In your own yard, choose organic means of pest control rather than toxic chemicals. Use companion planting techniques and disease-resistant seed varieties to reduce the need to spray more potent compounds in your garden or landscape.
2) Avoid Neonicotonoids that treat the seed before it’s planted. They essentially render the entire plant that grows out of that seed toxic to whatever insect feeds on it. Do not buy seeds treated with neonics, or plants that have been cultivated from them and encourage the garden centers not even to carry them.
3) Avoid Insecticidal Dusts – When bees collect pollen or nectar from a plant dusted with insecticide, they carry the insecticide back to the hive, where it can cause serious bee kills within the hive for many months. If you must apply insecticides, do so in the late evening or very early morning when fewer bees will be foraging, and when it is not windy.
4) Support Local Beekeepers who are on the front lines of keeping honey bees alive. Support their efforts to reduce pesticide spraying. The drift from the spray can infiltrate their beehives and kill off the bees.
5) Provide Water – Bees need lots of fresh, clean, unpolluted water to help them make their honey. Is there room in your yard or patio to add a small pond with a fountain or water filter to keep the water moving while providing lots to drink for the bees?
6) Urge the U.S. EPA to Test Pesticides That Could Be Causing Bees to Die Off
7) Plant A Variety of Blooming Plants – that bloom at different times of the spring summer and fall to provide a steady source of pollen. Native plants like purple coneflower (Echinacea) and Chokecherry can be ideal.
8) Encourage your neighbors to care for trees, flowers and bushes organically. Identify fields that your city or town can leave unmowed so that bees and other insects can feed on the pollen and nectar that will be available from weeds left to grow wild. Testify about the importance of protecting bees at your local city council or town hall meetings.
9) Buy Honey From Local Beekeepers –! You can find it online, at farmers markets and in natural and whole foods stores.

  Hi Spirit
It's so good to see you back, old friend! Mom doesn't have pneumonia, she got a vaccine for it yesterday. Her arm still hurts a lot, though.
Mom had a tour at the museum this morning with third graders. They were doing American Indian hall, and it was the first time in awhile that mom has done that tour. She had a good time, and apparently the kids did too. One of the boys said it had been awhile since he was at the museum, and he had forgotten how much fun it was.
After the tour, mom picked up a few things to make fudge for next week's staff meeting and spring luncheon. Everyone likes her fudge, but she doesn't do anything special, just follows the recipe on the Kraft marshmallow stuff. It's fairly straightforward and easy.
She then went to the wildlife center to pick up a box of squirrels for soft release on our property. The squirrels weren't ready, so she waited for awhile for the girls to catch them and box them up. The squirrels were getting too stressed, though, so mom decided she'd pick them up on Friday after her shift. She is depending on one of the other volunteers to come here with a ladder to mount the box high enough in a tree for them to feel comfortable.
Tonight is training for baby mammals. Mom and all the volunteers who want to work with babies during the spring have to attend the class. Mom has attended this class at least 12 times in the past 13 years, but each year brings something a bit different, so it's always worth going.
I hope you are having a good day today, feeling spring approaching (2 more days!), and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie O'Willy

  hi Spirit
Honeybees do more than make honey. 100 crop species which provide 90% of food worldwide are bee-pollinated. Almost every food you eat exists because bees pollinated the plant they came from. Honeybees populations are dying out in alarming numbers. Since 2006, 10 million beehives, worth an estimated $2 billion, have been lost .Scientists and beekeepers have several theories about why honeybees are dying off.
1) Bees live in colonies, with one queen and many drones and worker bees. During winter, the queen lays eggs within each cell inside a honeycomb. Fertilized eggs hatch into females that become the worker bees. Their job is to forage for food and take care of the colony. Unfertilized eggs become drones or honey bee males. For any colony to survive, the queen must lay fertilized eggs and those eggs must become worker bees. There is only one queen per colony. She mates once, but it counts when she does, as normally she collects more than 5 million sperm, enough so she can fertilize eggs throughout her life. When a queen can no longer lay eggs, new queens become responsible for mating and laying honey bee eggs. One theory behind the collapse of honeybee colonies is that the queen is not getting enough sperm from the male bee that she mates with. Another theory is that the queen is dying earlier than usual, which means she has less time to fertilize eggs. fewer fertilized eggs give rise to fewer worker bees that can help maintain the bee colony. If the queen dies out and is not replaced by a new queen, the hive will die out.
2) Many bee hives have been found to be infected by a tiny parasite called a varroa mite are wreaking havoc on bee colonies. The mites suck fluid from bees’ bodies, making the bees weak and compromising their immune systems. The mites also pass along viruses that can paralyze the bees. It is hard to kill off the mites without harming the bees
3)–, bees need food and water to survive. In their case, food comes from the pollen they collect from a variety of fruits, vegetables, and trees. They also need unpolluted water sources. Urban sprawl and industrial development are taking the place of fields that used to provide the plant variety that kept bees thriving. regions suffering from drought, annual flowers aren’t blooming and perennials aren’t producing as much nectar.
4)Neonicotonoids – is a systemic pesticide. It’s not sprayed on plants. Instead, seeds are treated with the chemical. As the plant grows, the pesticide infuses its plant tissue. If a bee nibbles on a plant grown from neonic-treated seed, it could be lethal.TOMORROW: HOW WE CAN HELP THE BEES

Your Mom will be fine--doing healthy things for herself will help. The winter you have had is depressing enough (we are not winter folk here) and then having things happen like the job, and the boyfriend don't help. But one thing is for sure: Mom says you hafta kiss a lot of frogs sometimes before finding the Prince. And if you don't find the Prince, you end up being stronger and more resourceful and happy that you did whatever you did for yourself.

Hi Son,

So pleased to see that you won BOTD. You're right, that is a super welcome back surprise. A day at the castle is always a good time.


Gonna be a quick blog today, because Mom is very late getting on to the puter. The city took down a street light and replaced it, which meant our power was off from 1-4. So we are just getting on now.

I did get a nice sunbath this morning at 9:45, and after 30 minutes Mom was really ready to come inside. It was pretty warm out there. Then she and I set up the corned beef and cabbage in the stock pot with all the seasonings, but she didn't put a fire under it since she had to go do her zumba thing. The minute she got home, the fire went under the pot and now the house smells wonderful. It should be done in an hour or two.

Meanwhile since Mom couldn't do anything but read with no power, I got her all afternoon! My room is the brightest one in the house, so that is where she sat. Sure worked for me, and now it is just waiting around for dinner.

  Hi Spirit Cloude,

First of all, Congrat's on being BOTD. Secondly, Happy St. Patricks Day to you and your Mom. It's Parker, the English Keet.

So sorry your Mom has been dealing with depression. It's a disease like so many others. Mom has a few in her Family that have it. She just turned 60 recently & back in 2011 had to leave work (was at that job for over 35 yrs.) because of health issues. But over the years she also had to deal with lots of sexual harassment. Not so much in her last job but many part time jobs she had & always ended up leaving them! SOME but NOT all men can be such Pigs! Anyway, Mom & I hope your Mom is doing better and if need be taking her meds especially if they are helping her. Hang in there, no one ever said "Life" was easy. Hope you're helping her "Too" Spirit. Pets are great Therapy. We have "5" Birds in our Flock and Mom also has "2" Siamese Cats. Here's a vote for you, cutie. Bye for now.

Parker (Your English Friend)
