Good morning ! I'm finally here - this is the second day in a row that we woke up to NO cable/internet ! During the night some really wicked storms came through - one KA-BOOM at about 3:40 was so loud it must have hit something ! As long as it didn't do any damage - there were no sirens so mom is hoping maybe just some minor damage . . . if any.

Well, mom's kitchen vacation is over :( Tonight she starts cooking again - bbq chicken and corn on the cob :) Nice going mom . . . find something daddy can cook ! har har har

  Hi Sugar
A BIT OF HISTORY I BETCHA DIDN'T KNOW.

Hours after Pearl Harbor was bombed on December 7, 1941, the Secret Service found themselves in a bind. President Franklin D. Roosevelt was to give his Day of Infamy speech to Congress on Tuesday, and although the trip from the White House to Capitol Hill was short, agents were not sure how to transport him safely

At the time, Federal Law prohibited buying any cars that cost more than $750, so they would have to get clearance from Congress to do that, and nobody had time for that. One of the Secret Service members, however, discovered that the US Treasury had seized the bulletproof car that mobster Al Capone owned when he was sent to jail in 1931. They cleaned it, made sure it was running perfectly and had it ready for the President the next day.

Al Capone's 1928 Cadillac V-8 "Al Capone" Town Sedan became the President's Limo in December 1941.

Mechanics are said to have cleaned and checked each feature of the Caddy well into the night of December 7th, to make sure that it would run properly the next day for the Commander-in-Chief. And run properly it did. It had been painted black and green to look identical to Chicago's police cars at the time. To top it off, the gangster's 1928 Cadillac Town Sedan had 3,000 pounds of armor and inch-thick bulletproof windows.

  Heya, Sugar!
Mom heard that jobs were good in Texas--and she hopes that the family will be happy there. Depending on where they live, it will be a huge change, that is for sure. But sometimes you have do what is best for you and your family, even though it is hard to move away.

Today was a strange day weather wise. We started out hot and sticky. then we got grey and icky. And it went back and forth between being sunny and raining like crazy. Oh, and the temperature dropped from 83 to 61, but then went back up to 76. And more rain is on the way, and tomorrow we will have a high of 70, with low humidity. That is the best part of it!

Doing my velcro thing on Mom's shoulder. She has to get out to a meeting at the Franklin campus by 8 AM. UGH.

Hope you had a lovely Sunday!

is waiting by the door for Sugar to come and he sees her waddling up to his door and throwing her wings around him and holding him tightly she tells him how very happy she is to be here with him!Dixie hugs Sugar just as tightly and he tells her just how excited he is to see her,he just couldn't wait another second!His time with her is the high light of his day!
Dixie tells Sugar that he got to go outside on the deck for a few hours before his Mom and dad had to go out,it was nice to be in the sunshine and get a shower!Dixie tells Sugar that all that company would wear him and his Mom out also!But it sure must've been fun to see everyone!Dixie just loves helping to clean the kitchen,there's so many interesting things you can find in the kitchen while you're cleaning it!
Dixie and Sugar waddle on to the platform and snuggle close together.Dixie takes the Hello Kitty Lunch Box from Sugar and upon opening it finds sugar cookies inside!While Sugar fills two big glasses with blueberry smoothies for them Dixie sets the cookies on napkins for them!As they start to nibble on the cookies and take long cool sips from their smoothies,Sugar takes out the book she brought for them to read tonight! Its called Elsie's Bird.Elsie is a little girl who lived in Boston a long time ago.She loves Boston and likes to visit the harbor and play with her friends.She enjoys hearing all the birds singing and she can name every bird in her neighborhood.
Her father doesn't like living in Boston and he tells Elsie he is going to move them to Nebraska!He already bought some land out there and they are going to be farmers!Elsie isn't sure whether she will like it there or not!Her father buys her a canary before before they leave for Boston and she names him Tommy Tune and he quickly becomes her best friend.Elsie doesn't like Nebraska at all!There isn't a harbor and her house is so far away from the closest neighbor.She and Tommy Tune spend their days together doing chores and singing.One day as Elsie is cleaning Tommy's cage he escapes!Grabbing his cage she runs after him.She is very upset!Never being away from the house,she has no idea of where she is!Hearing Tommy singing she calls out to him.He flies back to her but they can't figure out how to get back to their house!Elsie's father is calling her and she finds her way back home again!At the house is a big dog her father brought back for her!Both she and Tommy are so happy to have a new friend!They think that maybe Nebraska is all right after all!
Sugar cleans up after their snack and gets Dixie's legs up on the Hello Kitty Pillow and massages his legs and Dixie agrees with Sugar that he too is happy that Tommy Tune came back to Elsie!It would be very scary for him to be by himself all alone out there!
Dixie tells Sugar that when his parronts came home he got to go out in the acrylic cage and watch all the wild birds come and go to the feeders and the birdbath and then he got to snuggle in his freshly washed blanke

  Hi Sugar
Hello everyone, Zeena here with today's BOTM POST. Today we head to the warm tropical Island Luzon, Philippines and visit an unusual and exotic species of Dove. The Luzon Bleeding-Heart. The Luzon Bleeding-heart (Gallicolumba luzonica) is one of a number of species of ground dove in the genus Gallicolumba that are called "bleeding-hearts". They get this name from a splash of vivid red colour at the centre of their white breasts. The Luzon Bleeding-heart is the species in which this feature is most pronounced, and on first sight it is hard to believe that the bird has not recently been wounded. A reddish hue that extends down the belly furthers the illusion of blood having run down the bird's front. The Luzon Bleeding-heart was featured on a Philippine 2-peso postage stamp in 1994.


The Luzon bleeding-heart is classified as Near Threatened (NT) on the IUCN Red List and is listed on Appendix II of CITES., since it is commonly trapped. Local people use it for meat, but its striking appearance means that there is also a market for it in the pet trade. A captive breeding project has been started in Australia, and the Philippines. Habitat conservation is a priority but it will also be necessary to bring some of the three other species of bleeding heart doves (Negros, Sulu and Mindoro) into captivity, to prevent their extinction. Recently the first captive population of Negros bleeding heart doves has been established in the Philippines.

Only two of the five species of bleeding heart doves are held in captivity in Europe at present: the Luzon and the Mindanao. The European breeding programs for these species are coordinated by Bristol Zoo Gardens. They are being managed to provide a self-sustaining captive population and to develop important care and breeding techniques for use in the Philippines.

Identifying the areas where Luzon bleeding heart doves are found and the numbers that are left is the next step needed to secure this species in the wild. Once sites have been selected with the local community, the area will be protected to ensure the survival of the species in that area.

The areas where the bleeding heart dove lives also contain many other birds unique to these islands, all of which have been threatened by deforestation. In addition, some are threatened by hunting and illegal collection for the pet trade. By highlighting the plight of the bleeding heart dove, conservationists work to save the habitat for all the species in the area.

Although extremely rare in Aviculture 2 pairs were found for sale at $5000.US per pair.

Maddie sounds so cute. I hope she didn't expect Merlin and Mandy (or you) to sign back to her, heehee.
It was another fun milonga last night. It was great to see everybirdie there! Mom signed off because of all the thunder and lightning, but we all stayed til the fireworks were done, then went home in Ipo's shuttle. Thanks to Kiddo, Taz, Lizzie, and Sam for another great party!
Mom spent yesterday afternoon at the pool, it turned out to be a gorgeous day. Last night the thunderstorms rolled in right around time for the milonga and continued til about 2AM. Mom was kept awake by Daisy, who is scared of the noise. She was wearing her thundershirt, but she was still pacing and whining a bit. Today it's gray, cloudy, and looks like it will rain again. It might be a shopping day or just a stay at home and clean the porch day. I hope you are having a fun day of sunshine and summer weather, and that you can get out to play awhile. Hugs, Falco

Hi again Sugar and aunt Eileen, great time last nib, but we couldn't stay long! Thanks Kiddo, SP, Taz, & Lizzie, what a fabulous Beach Party Milonga you put on last night, and Sammy and the Scruffies did a great job also, with good music! Sorry we had to be pulled away so soon, the neighbor man wanted to talk, and dad's sister called about a family matter, both were very chatty! Limon had a really good time and got to meet his hero Taz, they like each other as good buddies already! This should be a peaceful Sunday for us, dad has to finish assembling Limon's new cage, it should work really good for him! We are going to try to get Limon's BC page put up as soon as time allows, he is truly a remarkable TooMan! Have a great day, and give my love to our dear hard charging aunt Auda, and all in your home, see ya tomorrow dear Sunday friends...

Ipo hugs her friend tightly. I am soooo happy to see you again. It's been so long!! Since we all got home we haven't had ANY internet. Oh sure, mom can get online with her phone enough to answer two or three things so it really doesn't count. We've been busy catchin up with all our missed snuggles an all. Mom's been so lazy! We think she had way to much fun while she was gone....except when she was tryin to get home. Yeah it took her 4 days to finally get home. They were on standby and there was bad weather so they kept gettin bumped. FINALLY on Thurs they go on a plane home. Their luggage made it on Tue when they were sposed to be home. Well its happy to have her home and don't want her to leave us again. Course, Sophie quit pluckin and had 2 daddies to spoil her. You guessed it, she's startin up again. My poor fister sure wants a daddy again. The rest of us are so happy to be home period.
Did ya hear about the fire not far from us? Its at a town called Levan an it's only about 30 mi away. It's not threatenin us at all, just makes the air smell bad. Sure hope the year ends without fires up on the mountain or anywhere close to us!

  Heya, Miss Sugar!
Oh, we saw you at the Milonga--lack of a typist means nothing at the Castle grounds. Love your new picture, too! Send in the clowns...and you and Pippo are the best looking ones in the group!

I was waiting for Mom to get up this morning. Nope, was not hungry. Not cuz it was light out...but because I know today is Saturday! FARMER'S MARKET DAY! Mom had to run to the store first, but I followed her around the house just in case she forgot that I knew it was the best day of the week. She says I am pretty darn smart. Of course!

And we went to the market, and I got the nice guy from the pie place whistle for me, and had so many people say hi to me. Got to flirt with Paula, too, and even said "You're a big cutie!" which came out pretty clear for her. She just thinks I am the best! I think she is awesome! Got some carrots there, and corn on the cob (oh, soooo yummy!) and some potatoes--YUMYUMYUM! I just love Saturday!

Guess we get some rain too, tonight or tomorrow. Big storms heading out east, so hope all is okay with everyone.

  Hi Sugar
Hello my dear BC friends. It was a long day without our beloved BC family but we are happy to say once it was up and going it was actually much faster then before. I had a special request from one of my friends to example the breeding of mutations. As this is a limited BOTM series I will touch on it briefly. For anyone interested in more in depth study I have a number of very good links and references.
In simplest terms a "mutation" is any deviation from the "normal wild-type" of any species of animal or bird. They occur spontaneously in the wild, as well as in captivity. In the wild MOST mutations have a very limited life-span owing to their coloration or other physical characteristics that make them more visible and easier prey. An example of a successful mutations are the red markings on normal Congo African Greys. These individuals integrate well into existing grey colored flocks.
In Captivity mutations are able to live and mature thereby offering breeders an opportunity to reproduce like marked/colored offspring. An excellent example is the Blue Budgie. These spontaneously occurred in several continents. By breeding Blue offspring back to normal parents the breeders were able to produce more of the same. Through selective culling and breeding of F2-second generation-blues the color was stabilized. Mutations can continue to occur even in a new mutation color--such as the blue Budgies who then produced offspring with yellow-Lutino or albino pigments. Inbreeding, selective crossing and out crosses to other colored mutations has given rise to all the many colors common in Budgies.
When looking specifically at Quaker Parrots, whose natural color is green/grey we find that the first mutation was a Blue baby hatched in Belgium in the 1940s. It is a complete replacement of the normal green plumage by blue. The gene for blue plumage is Autosomal Recessive and both hens and cocks can be heterozygous or ‘split’ for or‘carriers’ of blue – depending upon your favored terminology! This means--both parents must carry the gene to produce blue even though they are visually "normals" Today there are a large number of mutations being bred.
With all mutations, breeders must cull out the colors they do not want and breed the desired colors into the gene pool. Through consecutive generations of offspring the color is improved upon, often mutating from the original mutation thereby adding yet another new color for serious breeders to work with. Mutation possibilities are limitless as they occur spontaneously and can not be "created" by humans. Hybrids must not be confused with mutations. Hybrids are the result of breeding two diverse species within the same Genera together--examples of which are the Hybrid Macaws, Blue/Gold mated to a Green Wing etc.
Today we will visit a selection of mutations from a number of different species, I hope you enjoy the results.

gives both Sugar and Dixie a hug and watches as they both go to the platform,taking the Hello Kitty Lunch box from the Hello Kitty Wagon on their way!As they settle in Dixie opens it and sees there are snickderdoodles inside!While Sugar fills two big glasses with blackberry smoothie,Dixie places the cookies on napkins for them!As they start to nibble on the cookies and takes cool sips from the smoothies,Sugar chooses a book for them to read tonight and then shows it to Dixie!
The story Sugar picked is called Sheep In A Jeep!It's another rhyming story and both Dixie and Sugar love stories that rhyme!The sheep are trying to drive up a steep hill in a jeep.Suddenly the jeep stops and refuses to go any further.The sheep get out and start to push the jeep but they don't pay attention to where they're going and they push the jeep into a big mud puddle!It keeps slipping as they try to pull it out!They need help and a bunch of pigs come to help them get the jeep free from the mud!They succeed and the sheep thank the pigs for helping them and get right back in!They are on their way again but the jeep isn't running so good!Down,way down the hill they ride and they crash right into a tree!The sheep are all right but the jeep is not all right!
Sugar and Dixie savor the cookies and the smoothies!They both can't help giggling at how the sheep aren't very good drivers and how in the end the jeep gets smashed into a tree!The sheep decide to put a for sale sign on the jeep and they walk the rest of the way!
Sugar cleans up from their snack and gets Dixie's legs up on the Hello Kitty Pillow and massages his legs and she thanks Dixie for having her over today!Dixie just loves having Sugar over and he can't thank her enough for coming and being here with him,Sugar made his day so special like she always does and he always has the best time ever when he's with Sugar and his home is always open and welcoming for Sugar to come any time she wants to!He loves nothing better than spending time with Sugar,she means the world to him and is such a wonderful loving caring friend to him!
Both friends begin to yawn and stretch their wings and they know its time for bed!Dixie gives Sugar a kiss goodnight and cuddles under her wing!They say their prayers and add a special one just for Nana!Dixie says his own special prayers of thanks for Sugar,for always being there for him and making his world so bright and warm and putting the sun in the sky for him each day!He loves her sooo sooo very much!Sleep tight and sweet dreams!Bird Of My Heart!I love you more than there are stars in the sky and wider than the ocean is deep!

  Hi Sugar
It's Popeye.
Did you miss us? Yesterday morning, when dad tried to log us on, the BC was down. Dad kept trying but
nothing would work so he sent messages to Crystal and went out to take care of things on his list.

So, let's see, What happened on Thursday? Oh yeah, On Thursday mom and dad stayed home all morning and then mom said that they needed produce. So, off to Sprouts they went. They also went to Petsmart for more corn cob cage bedding for us. Then they picked more burgers at In-N-Out and headed to the park for the concert they missed last week. The group was called Cold Duck and they played something for everybody. Mom and dad liked them a lot and want to see them again.

Now, yesterday, since the BC was down, dad took mom to the police station and came home and started cleaning the carpets. Never mind that the temperature was around 90. Dad said it wasn't that bad. He has a "Rug Doctor" machine so the job wasn't too hard. Dad only did the hallway but said that the carpets are so dirty that it's going to take two cleanings to get them clean. He'll let the hallway dry and then try the second
cleaning to see how it goes.

When dad brought mom home, mom started fixing fresh green beans for dinner. We get the ends of the beans so everyone won. Dad grilled lamb steaks on the gas side of his new grill. He said that the strong flavor of charcoal would over power the lamb. Guess he knows because mom said they were great.

Yesterday was partly cloudy, with a high of 90 degrees and the low of 67. Today will be partly cloudy, with a
high 90 of and a low of 68, almost the same.
We can still water our lawns but we can't water the street or sidewalk.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Popeye

I bet you loved the visit with Maddie, and her showing you the sign for bird is awesome! She just looks so cute in that pic.
Poor mom, hope it doesn't take as long to put on the wipers as it did to replace the windshield.
It's supposed to rain and thunder today, but the sun is shining brightly so far. Mom has plans either way: If it is sunny, naturally it will be pool time; if it's raining, there is a street sale going on in Oakmont, which is close by, and also she got coupons for Penney's. Either way, she'll be back in plenty of time for us to attend the milonga. Hope to see you there, too. Hugs, Falco

  Morning sweet Sugar & Pippo, from Jenny Lynn
I hope to see many of our friends at the Milonga Beach Party tonight, it should be a lot of fun for all who attend! We're having a hot, muggy, overcast day, but these days come and go, no complaints with our Summer so far! Dad had great time with his old friends yesterday, they talked for hours, what could they possibly have to talk about! This should be an easy day for dad, not much happening, I hope your Saturday is equally laid back and peaceful, and let's all be aware that sadly, bird injuries can happen to any of us, in that magical split second, a constant vigil must ALWAYS be in place! Have a great day and give my love to our specie and very sweet aunt Eileen, and all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow...

we normally like to blog around 11:30pm and let night we couldn't even get on bird channel. mom stayed up til 2:30am and still no bird channel. then this morning still no bird channel. then around noon today bird channel was back. i hope everything runs smoothly for the milonga tomorrow night since we won't be having many more of them

today was a beautiful bright sunny day. have never seen a day in Pittsburgh were there wasn't one cloud in the sky and a high of 78. its taken me a whole week to forgive mom for trimming my nails and i did enjoy my short time outside today. i can't take the sun though and prefer being in the shade but there are still plenty of UV rays in the air for me to absorb. also the hummingbirds have finally started coming back to the feeder after a months absence. maybe they didn't like all those nesting birds on and near the front porch

mom was at the store today waiting for the cashier to ring up her order and a woman with 2 small girls was in front of her. the littles girl was whinning for some candy and the mom kept saying no so the little girl picked up a candy bar and bite into it through the wrapper and all and then placed it back with the other candy. the little girl then noticed mom was staring at her watching her bad behavior and gave mom this cutey pie smile. for one of the few times in moms life she kept her mouth shut and face expressionless as she stared down the little brat who then burst into tears and ran to her mommy. mom thinks she taught the little girl a lesson but isn't quite sure what. either don't do that again or to be more sneaky. mom is hoping for the first result. by the way don't ever buy the candy near the checkout counter at any store.

love Cori and Boo Boo

  Hi Sugar
Thanks so much for the good wishes for my hatchday, but especially for coming over to help me celebrate my special day. The cake and ice cream were luscious, weren't they? I got a new Jungle Talk Cotton Candy, new party whiskers, and my favorite movie popcorn nutriberries! Mom spoiled me all day.
Today mom cleaned in the RVS room, but didn't get it all done. She cleaned the fisher's big cage which takes up half the room, the bat's enclosure, the groundhog, and 8 of the raccoons, but had to leave 4 cages undone. Steph said they'd take care of them, though. It was a perfect pool day, too, so now mom is home to blog, and apparently in time to find BC up and running! Hope you are having another beautiful summer day today and getting lots of love and hugs. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Sugar
July 25th BOTM POST
Hello friends, Zeena the Ballerina here today with a popular, very pretty Australian species. The Bourke's Parakeet and it's mutations . These peaceful, gentle birds make awesome pets for people of all ages and have quite the following here in aviculture. With their calm personalities and soft voices they make awesome additions to any home whether it be an apartment or private dwelling.
I want to again thank each one of you for your wonderful comments and daily votes. If there is a species you would like to possibly see in one of my Posts feel free to mention them.
The Bourke's Parakeets (Neopsephotus Bourkii) are endangered in their own homeland of Southwestern and Central Australia, but are popular in aviculture. They are readily available in the United States and relatively inexpensive. Know the world over for their charming qualities.

The Bourke's parrot has recently been removed from the Neophema genus and placed in a genus of its own. Neopsephotus bourkii. Although discussion continues in this matter. The Bourkes Parakeet is listed on Appendix II of the CITES, as to be monitored and vulnerable. Our hopes is that it will never need to be moved to Appendix I.

They are the only parrot or parakeet that has no green pigmentation in its natural colour. The ‘normal parakeet’ found in its natural habitat is brown on its back area from head to tail with a pink underbelly. Wing feathers can be scalloped with a creamy white to sometimes a pale yellow. They also sport a royal blue on their shoulders, outside flight feathers and tail. A streak of the same blue crosses the top of their eyes. The male will have blue feathers just above his cere. One of the most popular mutations of Bourke’s is better know as a Rosey Bourke’s that is dark to light pink in colour. Today there are a wide selection of mutations available.

I trust you will enjoy the photos I have posted today in the gallery. These are not by-far all the available mutations being bred but gives a wonderful sampling of what is hatching in the world of Bourke's Parakeets.

with love and scritches Zeena 255116

Hey YOU! What's up? !!! Yeah, it's me, the ol' R-Bird. Shocker again, huh? Even I'm amazed when I finally get the chance t'see your sweet face. Looks like you and the Pippo-Pig are livin' it up at the circus. Or is that a group shot at your apartments? LOLOL And check it out, you've been hangin' with a SuperBowl winner! Ain't you somethin'. Me, I've been hangin' with nobirdie but myself. You wanna talk about one boring summer, this one's been it. Maybe I should think about runnin' off and joinin' the circus. Maybe THEN things would liven up a bit. Imagine my beak painted up like a clown face. Go ahead, you can laugh at that mental image.

Even tho I don't get t'chat with you often, I think about you so often, and wonder what you're up to, what you might be chewin' up these days or what snack you might be nibblin' on. Whatever you're doin', I'm always hopin' your feelin' a sense of happiness.

Hug?? ((((((HUG))))))))
Lots of love from your R~Bo Guy ('>

Come visit me, RaneBeau ('>.

  Hi Sugar
You and Pippo are sure having lots of adventures!
We are still trying to get mom back to 'normal'. She has been having difficulty getting to BC. Too many others on-line at home, and needing to watch how much time spent in certain positions.
We are the low birds on the totem pole and not liking it. At least mom is still being good company.
Its fun trying to get Polly pellets when she can't move very well.
Zippy
Yes, about stealing my pellets. For a couple days my collar was off and mom was trying hard to move fast. Almost got Zippy's tail a few times. But, mom saw me with feather in claw and my collar is back on. I'm looking more raggedy, but I'm soo unhappy that I am collared again. It was fun while it lasted.
We are worried about you. Is your mountain on fire?
Polly

  Hi Sugar
It's Popeye.
Dad didn't get to talk to his lawn man yesterday. Mom wanted to see another movie and didn't want to wait for him. Dad wasn't happy about it but did like the movie. it was called The Other Woman and it was funny. The revenge they piled on this "three timer" was staller. After the movie they came home and ate cold chicken leftovers for dinner and headed out for another concert in the park. The group was called Doo Waa Riders and they were good. Dad was raised on country music and even worked in a country music radio station when he was in high school. And, for a short time, he played backup guitar in a country band. He still has his instruments. A six and a twelve string guitar, a solid body and hollow body electric guitar, a five string banjo, a mandolin and three amplifiers.
Dad said he needs to mow the lawn today but he isn't going to. It's going to be too hot. The weather page says it's going to be clear and Hot, with a high of 100 and a low of 69. At least the humidity will be low.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Popeye
