  Hi Falco
Glad your mom thinks your starting to feel better now too.
This morning mom and dad were up early again and after mom fed me and got twisted around her and dad left. Mom said they were going to Idlewild to see the Scottish games and find moms Maxwell tent. They were home pretty early and mom bought a shirt and they said watching the games was fun. Moms cousin that is a doctor was there so mom got to chat with her a bit also and the other cousin and their mom too.. Mom said they also sold kilts there but knew dad would never wear it and besides mom is the Scotish one in the family and not dad LOL. Mom didn’t think she would wear a kilt either. “Sometimes people ask mom how she can be friends with people she has never met and mom tells them then you have never been on bird channel I bet. That about sums it up to my friend” ~~ Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Come visit me, Gus --Chi chi ♥ RIP & Chi chi RIP my sweet girl..

Mom is trying to do more research on the probiotics for birds but her avian med manuals are really old and that is something new now so she is going to look further in her other articles she keeps for references for your sweet Mom!
Oh Poor Falco!Dixie sure understand what's that's like having to have meds pushed onto you like that!He's had to have meds on a daily basis for years now and it does get old after awhile!That's why my Mom puts his meds on his bean mix in the morning so he'll get it down without a fight!Please Falco be a good girl and take your meds,we only want to see you feel better with no booboos that will be bothering you!We all love you and want you to be back to your normal self again!Our prayers will never stop coming for you til you are 100%!
It sure sounds like your sweet Mom had some interesting training tours!Those halls in the museum sure sound quite interesting to be able to walk through and how awesome she got the that mini tours all done in 35 minutes,that means more time for you!
It got no higher than 68 here today but at least the sun was out even though it was a freezing cold morning to start with!Mom is hoping to not go out tomorrow at all she's had enough driving around from one end of town to the other but it was interesting to be at the Blessing of the animals to see all the silly dogs trying to sniff my cousin Bella(CAG)and hear Bella just yell and growl at them!I think they were looking at my baby fister Candida like she was going to be a snack for one of them!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses,my sweet Falco,and a wish for a day filled with lots of Mom time,special treats and those wonderful scritches too!Loving you always and forever,Kallie

Glad you approve. Always like to be diplomatic.

Well, I didn't get a sunbath today, and it is all my fault again. It was actually too cool this morning before Mom and Dad went grocery shopping, and so when Mom got home she tried to get me to go outside. Nothin' doin', and I made that quite clear thru several attempts on my mom's part. She couldn't even get me to sit on her shoulder, much less climb on and in to the outside carrier. Oh well, maybe tomorrow.

However it is not a total loss, because I was more than willing to climb on my mom's shoulder to come in and blog. (She tried one last time to get me to climb in the carrier....nope!) So now I am sitting on Mom's knee and having Mom time with my blog time. Works for me.

  Hello Miss Falco!
I just wanted to come by & see you & make sure you are continuing your convalescence in good form. I'm making note of all these suitors pouring in. BLAST!! Take a number, won't 'cha? Sam hollers out at all the male birds he sees lined up with flowers & treats in their talons. She needs some down time, okay? Sam huffs. Sheezz, you'd think they'd be a bit MORE thoughtful. Falco giggles under her wing like she's preening some feathers.

Well, I just wanted to say, our Moms will be meeting once again at the Parrot Palooza! Yes, & I heard there are great many TOYS there & treats & so many beak watering things to chomp upon! Do you really think it's like a mobile Santa Bird's work shop?? I dream of the Angel Wings Toy Shoppe like that! Santa Bird comes there to pick the cream of the crop from those awesome toy makers. Mom said she wanted to buy some parts then make it in front of me. Maybe let me CHOOSE my own pieces. You see, every new toy I get, there must be a ceremony of acceptance. I & other "scardy-birds" sit in a big circle with the NEW toy in the middle. Then we pass around the big 'peace' stick & each one of us pokes, swats, skewers, the NEW toy with the stick. Each time when somebirdy does the poking, swatting, or skewering, we all run away because we just KNOW something horrible is inside of it!! After squawk-a-tiel gumbo, I'm sure they will be trying to get into everything for revenge on me! Anyway, if we make it all around the circle without any monsters or other birds coming out of the toy, then it will be played with. At first, cautiously, but then I, & other "scardy-birds" will dive into having a good time with it. Christmas & my hatchday are just too close together! Christmas toys do not have sufficient time for the ceremony & then ANOTHER group of toys comes in & it looks like an invasion to me! It is to laugh, Mom says!

By the way, didn't I see you joining in one of my Acceptance Ceremonies? I could've sworn it was YOU, but with the terrified shudderings & loud calls of alarm, I was a bit distracted.

Have a greyt day, Miss Falco. I hope you're not becoming a Mom Muncher. She's only trying to help you get better, ya know? They don't grow their skin back as easily as we grow our feathers. Just think about it before you chomp again. Hugs to all, SamIAm

  Hello Falco~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! How are the meds going? I hope mom does not have any new bites on her hands! I would hate it too but if it's going to make you better than hang in there!!
Did your mom find any probiotics for you?? Mom doesn't see how a powder would work since I don't eat everything at once. I am more of a snacker than an eat it all at once eater! I suppose she could try it on apples if I needed it because I do eat them all at once!
Mom is going to do a bit of cooking and then I think dad has to go back to his truck. He is off at Costco and Best Buy looking at computers. He is just looking at them for now and mom is hoping that he will just buy a new laptop and let us have the old one. We shall see!
Enjoy the day and please give the boys my love!

Jesse grins sweetly as he pulls a bouquet of roses from behind his back presenting them to Miss Falco. " Too the most beautiful cowgirl I know" he kisses Falco's wing tip softly before standing tall.
I thought you might enjoy a walk today along the river before the wedding this afternoon at the castle. Everyone's getting married on BC lately, hard to keep track of who is married to whom." Jesse giggles as the two walk wing in wing along the board walk enjoying the soft, fall colored leaves and honking geese out on the water.

  Day 20- Cheticamp River Kayaking
Hello everybirdie, Angel Girl here with today's wet BOTM post. We finally arrived at the inland beginning of the Cheticamp River, where we found our Kayaks ready and waiting for our down river tour. The sun was just peaking over the mountains when we pushed off and began to slowly paddle out into the calm river. We had not gone very far when the current of the river began to move rapid and strong towards our first white-water adventure.
" Angel GIRL!!!" Raffikki called loudly, " you sure this is safe?"
"Well, I think so," she saw the look on several faces change, " YES, of course it is, just hang on tight to the sides of the kayak and paddle when you can. Watch for rocks, and paddle backwards to slow yourself down to navigate around them. SEE YOU ALL AT THE BOTTOM"
"WEEEEEE," Little Angel and Dixie's kayak begins it rapid ride down the rough, fast moving waters, spray flying up into their faces, " this is fun Dixie" Dixie wasn't so sure, but paddles and leaned slightly to go around the first rock in their pathway.
"Oh, my feathers!" Chyna complained as water soaked her from head to tail, " It's freezing cold too!"
"Paddle harder Cori" Boo Boo ordered as she navigated a turn in the river expertly
""BRRRRRR. It's icy. I'm soaked too" Falco called to Chyna as she and Willie splash around a huge boulder in the river.
"Havin' fun BB?" Sky asked laughing as water covered over their kayak, as they bobbed and spun down the decline" reaching quickly back to check on his pickles. " Ok, their safe!"
"YUCK!!!!!! " BonBon glares at Spot who grins back, " you did that on purpose." BonBon shakes her feathers dry of water and "OHHHHHHHHHH, algae" Spot giggles and splashes her again with the paddle. She sticks out her tongue. " where'd you learn that from"
"I'm tellin' Poppa Sky on you Spot" and Little Angel"
YEEHAWW" SamIAM yells as he and Miranda move swiftly through the choppy waters, mist and waves soaking them to the skin. " This is so much fun"
" Hold on tight" Jesse yells to Falco as they reach a very rough, rocky spot at the bottom of a short falls. Willie and Jesse paddle hard to keep up-right and finally they exit the white water into the calm river below. :Wasn't that greyt falco?" Jesse asks, but only gets a fluff of wet feathers in response. The boys laugh.
" Here we go Gus" Hulk says as they enter the rapids, water falling high around them
"Snowy, Strawberry are you two ok?" Angel calls back seeing them caught up on a small dead-fall( tree limb) in the water.
"Yep, we're free" the kayak moves off swiftly, into the deeper water.
Chipper, Cheyenne, Cookie and TiPaul ride the rushing current safely through the first turn, into the rough, drop over the falls, when suddenly their kayak turns sideways. They paddle hard trying to correct themselves, but it's too late, they tip to the left and then turn upside down. Just as swift they roll themselves upright to the applause of the others watching from below.

  Hi, Falco
We don't have first wing knowledge of having to swallow meds, but hear it isn't a pleasant thing but necessary. Are you planning on giving your mom 11 more bites?

Never eaten yogurt but think other fids have sampled it. Hopefully others will have some good suggestions since a fid wouldn't need much.

Wonderful that many of the critters were able to return to the wild. Sounds like the owlets will be able to hone their flying skills now.

Mom had a nice visit with skinsis and the grand but no pics - she was too busy holding the baby.

Have a great day, wing hugs, beak kisses and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  You have no idea how happy
I am that you are feeling better Miss Falco cause mom wants Aunt Arlene coming to Parrot Palooza not having to worry !

Well, mom did it again ! She came home from school and started in on another room in the house ! Then around night-night time she realized she needed milk for coffee and off she went ! Then, as we all know, today is the day the folks go to help out at the g'parronts ! Hopefully they'll be back early or I may go on strike ! Enough of this ignore the bird stuff !!

The plumber comes back on Monday to install the shower/tub valve - so once again, I'll show off for him :) I wonder if he'll have an assistant ? When the new dishwasher was installed, I made friends with the assistant and daddy had to hold the flashlight and hand the plumber tools ! His helper was playing with me ! har har har !

Have a great Saturday ! love Cookie

Thanks ... and look at you girlfriend ...23,825 votes!
I had some yogurt too. The vet told mom what kind I could have. I only ate some of the key lime one. But, I LOVED my bene-bac! Mom got the syringe free from the vet. It has a dial on it so easy to use.
So sorry to see all the animals leave but good to know they are well now and ready to go home.
I received a card/letter form Squeaks today. Looks like her mom is back home today. No internet in VA either for her. She is ready to be home.
What a greyt day! I hit the 20K at 1AM, thanks to my sweetie Scoober. Then, it was Talk Like A Pirate Day! I did my best. Today was a high of 65, partly sunny and rain tonight. The T-storms are back and will hit us from 2AM thru 8PM on Saturday.
I want to thank all of you who have voted for me. I wouldn't have this honor without you.

Oh I just thought it was so funny because I know exactly what you were going through,you keep hitting the send button because it never gets onto the page,Mom and I have done that so many times once it got on a page we were blogging on six times,how sad is that!LOL!
Mom has a list of foods containing probiotics and some of them are green beans,tomatoes,banana's whole grain bread,Mom will research more from her Avian Medical Manual as soon as she can catch her breath tonight and give you more and yogurt of course is another.Its good to have Falco take probiotics while she is on her meds to keep her flora in her gut healthy,and a tiny amount of plain yogurt won't hurt at all.
Mom is hoping to take us to the Blessing Of The Animals tomorrow morning in Yarmouth if she can get herself up and out to Nana's on time and pick her up and my cousins and then drive back towards here with us in the stroller and Kallie on his harness and leash!
You be good and don't bite your sweet Momma who is only trying so hard to make you feel better!Mom puts Dixie's meds in his bean mix in the morning so he has all morning to eat it and get it in!We love you Falco and we want you to feel back to your old self again and be 100% again!Take your meds like a good girl and maybe your sweet Momma will give you a reward after you take your meds like a nutriberry or an animal cracker,Dixie gets his choice of anything that is safe for him from the fridge,he loves cake or pie!
That sure was a whole lot of animals that were released back to the wild today and it sure must be calming down now for your sweet Momma so she doesn't have to work so hard!Please tell Falco how much we love her and tell her to please be a good girl and take her meds without biting you poor Mom to shreds!We all want to see her well fast!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses!Loving you always and forever,my sweet Falco,Love Kallie

  Hi Falco
Mom just put those cut outs on a white paper towel and on the bench to show the cutouts on them. She actually put a piece of yarn thru the hole and hung it on the kitchen window off to the side cause my one perch is on the other side and I sit there and look out the window in the morning so dont like anything hanging there. Know what you mean about biting the mom when you have to take the meds. It takes both my parronts to hold me when I need the meds. One holds me in a towel and the other puts it in my beak. That is the only way to get better though. Did you ever try lactopriv/B ? Its in a box but its ok for humans too and actually good for everyone. Jane at Pretty Parrot sells it to my mom and 4xs a year I am on it for a month...when the seasons change. Mom adds it to my oatmeal in the morning and I eat it all so at least its going in me. If you want Janes phone number or information to talk with her let us know and we can give it to you.
Usually Fridays are moms laid back days or a day if she needs to make an appointment she will pick that day. Its also my bath day for sure though I often get others thru the week as well so we got that over with too. The telephone man came cause there is noise in the lines again and this has been an ongoing problem for at least 5 years now. Of course while he was here I had to be in my condo. Then skin sis came up so back in the condo I was again cause she was showing mom something and I tried to be in the center of it all. Then moms cousin came so back in the condo I went again. Geesh I felt like it was moving day for me LOL. “Sometimes people ask mom how she can be friends with people she has never met and mom tells them then you have never been on bird channel I bet. That about sums it up to my friend” ~~ Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

HAPPY TGIF DAY

WELL LAW SUITS ARE PENDING BECAUSE OF GROUND WATER CONTAMINATION BY RANGE RESOURCES (one of the many fracking companies). they have agreed to pay 4.15 million in fines for violations and contamination of our drinking water.. they are still using the outdated open water containment of the poisonous waters allowing leakage and access to wildlife. at least the other FRACKING Compaines have switched to above ground storage tanks and are building safer fracking sites. no fracking should be allowed by them until they update and comply. it seems it is easier to pay the 4.15 million in fines rather than do anything about their leakage. a big THANKS to our esteemed governor for giving all these fracking companies the green light to come into our lands and poison everything. (we are being sarcastic)

  Day 19--Sights and Scenes to behold
"HELLOOOO!!!!!!!" Angel Girl yells, listening to her voice echo off the rock faces of the mountains. " This is so cool. We have so much to do in this one park, it's incredible."
"Oh look" Kaji points as he spies a large mother black bear with three tumbly teenage cubs following behind, wrestling and rolling in the long meadow grass.
There are many activities to do when visiting the Cape Breton Highlands National Park. Activities include camping, hiking, sightseeing, swimming, fishing, cycling, golfing, kayaking and surfing. There are endless swimming options available for all ages in the park. There are five main salt water ocean beaches in the park and two freshwater lakes. The ocean beaches include Ingonish Beach, North Bay Beach, Broad Cove Beach, Black Brook Beach and La Block Beach. The two freshwater beaches include Freshwater Lake and Warren Lake. Freshwater Lake and Ingonish Beach are both supervised with a lifeguard during the summer months. There are very strong currents at Black Brook and Ingonish Beach which must be considered when bringing small birdies to these two beaches.
"Hey let's go white water kayaking down the Cheticamp River." Pookie says eager for adventure. " Then we could try surfing off the beach."
"Sounds like fun." Angel Girl climbs up on a tree stump to be heard. " OK, who wants to try some kayaking in white waters?" she looks as every wing goes up. " cool bunch of adventures."
"They Park ranger says they have kayaks arrival at the top of the river. We can ride the horses there, or hike cross country." Jenny-Lynn tells the group.
"We better hike, leave the horses here until we return and head down tot he ocean later for some surfing. Pookie offered to help teach us a few basics." Willie adds, grabbing his backpack
. The sun shines like sparkles through the heavy pine forest canopy. As the group walk they reach the opening over looking the ocean and park below. Steep cliffs and deep river canyons carve into a forested plateau bordering the Atlantic Ocean.
"BB, this is so beautiful, I feel like we have escaped into the past. Look how alive it all looks here." Sky hugs BB close as they look out over the park.
"Dixie, look, deer" Little Angel watches as the group graze in the shadows of the mountain.
Rio and Cydney, stand in awe at the size of the ocean stretched before them. " It goes on forever"
Jesse, joins Falco as they take photos to member their trip to Cape Beeton. " Popeye, Cori, Boo Boo and Pearl stop to admire an Eagle soaring high in the sky above them.
"We better get going so we have time to kayak before the sun gets too high in the sky. It will be so much fun bumping and splashing down the river." Angel Girl talks to Lalo and Sugar as they begin to hike down the soft, leaf covered pathway.
Sky grins, patting his backpack. " some pickles just in case I get hungry."
Angel Girl giggles and shakes her head at her frother, " always hungry"

  Heya Miss Falco
I just read about you havin' to go back to the vet's about your leg. Did ya end up having to get x-rays? Bet that was a whole lot of fun. Not. Never had it done myself but I can well imagine it's a real pain t'have t'be still, or worse, have to fake deep sleep while they take your inner pictures. Bein' jabbed with a needle and havin' a bunch of blood sucked out of me was horrid enough. Hope you're gonna be a-okay without too much trouble and discomfort. I'd feel terrible if I knew you were miserable and hurtin'.

Nothin' too new around here other the fence right through the middle of the bird room. Seems mom got tired of my roaming ways and decided t'make sure I stay on my half of the room. Actually it was Miss Reba's following me around that was the real problem. Her beak can bend the lighter wires on all the other cages and we can't be havin' that happening. I birdsonally wasn't doing any harm anywhere, just checkin' out what was in other's food bowls. In the eight years I've lived in my bird room (I used to live in another part of the house before that), I've never shown any interest in checkin' out other bird's cages, but all of a sudden, well, it seemed like an adventurous thing t'do. I'll give the wooden divider another couple of weeks of peace and then I'm going to start in on tryin' to figure out how to either go over, around and through it. Reba's got a start on a small hole but don't tell my mom about that.

You take care, Falco. Hopefully you can find a comfortable way t'perch so that leg can heal up faster.

  Hi Falco,

It's your Friend, Oz. I wonder if you would like Yogurt Chips for Birds. They have them a Bird Paradise and they are very, very tiny NOT the bigger ones. Just a thought. Boy these Sweat Lodges really take the bad stuff out of you, don't they? Just the rest of the day to go and we'll all be done for our Snowflake and Jedi's Traditional Ceremony. Boy what we don't do for our Family & Friends LOL. I'm so excited about the big Double Wedding Ceremony tomorrow and I can't wait til we're there. Hope you'll be feeling well enough to dance alittle, Girlfriend. Here's a vote for you.

Love & Winghugs,
Oz (Your Pink Friend)

Come visit me, Parker, Silver, APACHE IS SO HAPPY SNOWFLAKE SAID YES ON 04/27/14, Oz & Cheyenne said YES to her Jedi 5/3/14.

  Hello Falco~
I hope you are having a great day! Dad actually showed up today. He took his truck over to the Kenworth dealer in Tacoma and called mom to come pick him up. I think he is only going to be here for one day since he has a load to Wyoming already to go.
He just had to go off to get a drug screen done and stop by the bank. His aunt died a few years ago and since he is the only one left in his family, he inherited her stuff. She owned a mobile home and the land up in Northern California so it took about 4 years to get it sold and get all the stuff done in the courts. It's done now and he got a check so he is going to stop by the bank and deposit it. We now have enough money to get the Envoy fixed! Mom is very happy about that. Since she already has vacation scheduled from the 28th to the 3rd, she take it down then. Don't know how long it's going to take to fix the transmission but she'll find all that out before she takes him down there!
I am sorry that you have to take the meds and that you don't like it! I'm sorry that you are biting your poor mom too! I did some really hard bites last week and mom is still wearing band aids because of it!
From what we read, probiotics are species specific. There are powers you can buy but I don't know if you eat enough food at one time to get the power down into your tummy! I don't so we would have to figure out something else. I just want you to get all better and be your old happy self again!!
Glad to hear that your mom enjoyed her evening. I bet it was really funny to be a guest instead of the one leading the tour!
Enjoy the day and please give the boys my love!

  Hi Falco
Added the word "living" to the voting requirements on the Calendar Page, and so if any "angels" vote they just won't be counted. Will make sure it is in there for any future events. I noticed Dixie's flock is voting exactly that way.

Today we finally got the real cool down. Mom took me out for my sunbath at 8:55 so as to be sure I got sun before she went to the gym, but it was actually so cloudy it was a little cool. We only stayed the minimum (per the vet) of 20 minutes. However since today's high is 83 (YAY!!) it was so nice outside when Mom got home a bit before noon, we went out again for another sunbath. Then we came back in and shared rice and veggies for lunch. And I am now perched on Mom's knee dictating my blogs.

Well, Mom did it. She went to zumba after training with Becky today, and it went well. She had to really watch herself not to give in to the hip swaying and circling, because that is still a no no, and she also left after 40 minutes instead of staying for the whole hour. It wasn't that she was too tired, but she was worried about her tummy. She is being very careful. And boy, did she get a lot of hugs from all the zumba ladies! It was a great time for her, but me...not so much. I guess I have to accept that zumba is back to stay.

Is everybirdy remembering to go vote for Rodeo Queen? Remember every living bird in your flock gets one vote each day thru the 24th, so don't miss a single one.
So far every contestant has at least one vote, and I know when I go count this evening there will be even more. Will yours be there????

  Hi, Falco
There's a Whole Foods just down the street from where the new Sprouts moved in. Prices aren't bad and just have to focus on quality so get what one pays for. There are a few things mom gets at Whole Foods that are close in price to other stores.

Our mom's puter updated awhile back and has a popup saying there's something missing from her email. Not sure what it is but the email seems to work. Irksome these error messages don't go away.

We are quite relieved that your leg isn't broken and that the wound on your side should heal without any problem. Probably not fun taking those meds but certainly don't want any infections.

Hope your mom enjoyed attending the event as a guest. She deserves to relax and have fun.

Have a great day, wing hugs, beak kisses and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

V4U today. We hope that your leg is healing nicely, and that you'll be as good as new very soon. Sorry that my mom hasn't had time to blog, she thinks of everyone and keeps everyone in her prayers even when she isn't blogging. Get well soon, Falco. Your friend, Mayo

  I am SO happy you are healing !
We were very worried ! It's been a busy week here ! Mom had back to school night last night and didn't get home till 10:00 ! ! Of course she said good-night and re-tucked me in ! Daddy is a great pal and my favorite playmate, but he's not very good about tucking in ! I'm hoping for lots of Cookie time this weekend !

After school today though mom has to go buy a new shower/tub valve - ours just fell off ! The plumber says it's because we have hard water things just don't last . . . last spring it was the sink - sigh - always something :(

Have a lovely Friday - Cookie

  Hi Falco
Good luck with the Rodeo Queen contest!
I remember that pain of Java script! We haven't had it since this new windows 8 puter!
So, how are the meds doing? Are you taking them good? I hope so. Are you leaving your side alone? If not, they might put one of those collars on you! That wouldn't be good :(
We hope for some high 60 temps with sun this weekend!
Today was a cold day with a bit of sun. Mom & I did some house cleaning but mostly relaxed. Dad will be home tomorrow for dinner. I don't think he caught any fish. Mom & I would rather go out for dinner.
I made it to the 20K ... thanks Scoober!

  Hi Falco
Mom often says when the snow is flying she wishes she would of went more often with her sister when she was here in the summer cause you sure cant go in the winter even if her sister was still here.
We have Verizon also and on the main computer dad is always getting pop ups and problems and keeps thinking he has virus too though we also have have virus protection on it. We do know lots of virus can slip thru anyway. Mom had that happen on hers.
Sure happy to hear your doing so well Falco and when we have problems the parronts always try to figure out what happened or why.
I finally got to sit out for my sun bath today. It takes awhile for the day to warm up so it was later then usual that I went out today but by then the day was warm and the sun was out nice. The cows were way up on top of the hill and hadn’t worked their way around down by the bottom so I didn’t get to see much of them today. I guess they have a system they use and do it every day so guess it wasn’t time when I was out there for my sun bath to come down around the bottom. The baby cows are so cute and they sure do like running and playing around the older cows. They must be have ok cause I never see any of the big cows give them heck LOL “Sometimes people ask mom how she can be friends with people she has never met and mom tells them then you have never been on bird channel I bet. That about sums it up to my friend” ~~ Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Falco--
Well, you certainly gave Mom a scare yesterday...we're all glad you're ok. Hope you survived your claw-a-cure ok. I know they can be stressful.

It's gonna warm up here a bit for a few days....suspect it'll bring the Moms some tropical moisture...Mom says the softer the ground gets, the easier her digging will be, so she's all for it. As for the rose of sharon...Mom thinks that if she cuts off all the seed pods, she can keep it from taking over...which it was trying to do, of course.

Sherman and Peabody ignored the millet the whole time Mom had it out and devoured it as soon as it was in their cage. Sigh. But they do like straffing her hair, tho. Silly birds.

Well, take care and be well...hugs all around.

  Hello Falco~
I hope you are having a wonderful day. It's been nice here.
Mom came home and took a nap. Her sister called while she was sleeping and mom didn't even hear the phone! I guess she really was tired! She called her sister back in between taking Jennifer and Ian to work. She didn't want her getting worried again.
I am glad that you leg is okay but it is worrisome to have a wound there. I hope the medicine helps and that you heal quickly. I think it would be really hard to leave it alone. I know I'd be a pill about it!
Oh we hope your mom enjoys herself tonight! How exciting to be a guest instead of having to work. Mom and I both hope she has the most wonderful time.
Mom is off tonight and tomorrow night but I don't know what we have planned yet. She already cleaned on bathroom and is baking some macaroni and cheese. I've had my macaroni and veggies and it was just yummy. Maybe we could do some birdie bread next! That always goes well with macaroni and peas!
Enjoy your evening and I do hope it's perfect! Please give the boys my love!

  Day 18--Cape Breton Highlands National Park
Hello everybirdie, Angel Girl here with today's BOTM post. It was so eggciting to see the whales so up close and personal. The majestic giants were happy to show-off their talents, leaping, and blowing for us as we paddled among them heading for our new campsite at Cape Breton National Park. I wish to take a moment to thank everyone for their their daily votes and support in my quest for the throne. Sharing this adventure with all my friends is making it a special memory for me.
After paddling along the coast we finally arrived at Cheticamp, on the edge of Park. Here we were reunited with our horses, and were able to pick up a few needed supplies that my frothers Jesse and Amanda, being boys, forgot to include in our packs. The park is located in the northern end of the island and covers one-third of the Cabot Trail. It passes through the park featuring spectacular ocean and mountain views. The park is well known for its "steep cliffs and deep river canyons that carve into a forested plateau bordering the Atlantic Ocean" The park was the first National Park in the Atlantic provinces of Canada and covers an area of 948 km². It is one of 42 in Canada's system of national parks. It is known worldwide as the place where singer Taylor Mitchell died after being fatally attacked by coyotes, the only adult human fatality from coyotes in history.
At the western entrance of the park is the Acadian village of Chéticamp on the Gulf of Saint Lawrence . On the eastern side of the park are the beaches at Ingonish on the Atlantic Ocean. In between are mountains, valleys, forests, waterfalls, rocky coastlines and a tundra-like plateau known as the Cape Breton Highlands. Park wildlife includes moose, black bears, coyotes, and Bald Eagles. The park provides habitat for the uncommon Bicknell's Thrush and Gaspe' Shrew. The first nest records of Boreal Owls for Nova Scotia were found in the south west corner of this park.
" Lalo, come on, you have enough souvenirs" Jenny-Lynn says, wings on her hips as she keeps an eye on her fister in the gift shop in Cheticamp.
"What's this Acadian thing?" Gus asks Hulk, "reading a sign mounted in town square
"Acadians are of mixed decent, French and other races. They came here from Louisiana"
"So we can get some Cajun cookin here? Let's go get something to eat!" Gus replies happily
"Wait for us" Susan and Snowy yell as they weave through the crowd of horses and riders." can't pass on a greyt meal"
Angel Girl continues to check their supplies list preparing to head to their next camp site.."Oh we need more eggs and oatmeal." She gives the list to Sky who heads off to gather all they need from the store near by.
"This place is beautiful" SamIam comments, looking out over the ocean, :has a historic appeal to it."
" I have everything we need. We better ride out before it gets too dark: Sky tells Angel Girl
"Ok, let's mount up birdies, time to head into the mountains."
Angel Girl 224627

  Hi Falco
I sure hope that wound seals up quickly. It sounds pretty scary to me. Now keep your beak away from there or you will end up with the cone of shame. Never a good thing!

Well, yes we got the cool down, but they were calling for low 80s, and we got 87. Not low in my opinion, but it did mean I was able to go out for my sunbath at 9:45 and it was very pleasant. I didn't want my nutriberries for some reason though. I ate half of the first one and dropped it, and turned up my beak at #2. Maybe because they are the bottom of the bag.

However last night when Mom picked up the little can she keeps them in to put it in the hallway as a reminder to go on Amazon Prime and order more, I thought she was getting rid of them and got very upset. However they were back in my room this morning, so all is well.

Voting for rodeo queen begins today, so get on over to the milonga page #165848 and cast your vote for one of the lovely cowgirls in the gallery. Just pick a # and post your vote. One vote per bird in your flock each and every day until midnight EDT on the 24th. Lots of voting activity already, so it will be a great contest.
