Alex, it is So sad for all of us, those that followed your lifes work in the news & those that just heard of you, that you couldn't stay with us earth bound mortals longer to teach us more, we still have so much to learn. And you were a patient teacher. You will be dearly missed, I am sure Griffin and Aurthur are greiving also.~ ~ Fly high, fly straight, fly amongst the clouds and those other feathered angels in the sky above us, always....... ....... 7 ....... .......

  Tricky Ricky,
All new pictures from you, love every single one of them especially the one with you hanging upside down. My mom loves your tree, she says something like that will be my next new 'toy'. She almost got a sandblasted one back in april at the birdshow, decided on a t-stand instead....and i hate that thing. Really freakes me out, so bad that i'm shaking. But i do love my swing now. You guys have a great weekend. See you, SIMU

  Instead of silver or gold, Precious stones, pearls or gems, My jewelry is now made of hemp, It is strung with wooden beads, Shiny baubles and bells, I no longer wear clothes with famous designer names, Although my clothes do have “custom designs” And missing buttons, special holes, Pulled threads, yet I feel no shame. The vacuum is never quite for long. Since acquiring 10 fids It works many times a day for a song. There are more than just seeds in the fridge, It has a special shelf for fresh and tasty treats. Foraging involves more than finding food, Keeps the keepers searching for new ideas To keep us learning, busy and happy. This is all a small price to pay To live so near to the most elegant, Awe inspiring, colorfully iridescent, inquisitive creatures in all of nature. And be able to call them friends. It is hard to dedicate this to only one bird, So this is for all our feathered friends That are close to our hearts and Those that have yet to find that elusive “forever home”

  Hi Tricky Ricky,
Simu here and to be really honest, i did'nt have a good time on that swing (pssst, don't tell mom). I only went on there because mom tricked me with a peanut. After 5 minutes off i went. Well actually i went exploring on that swing and did'nt know that stupid thing would move. So i flew off and thank goodness mom gave me her arm to land on (i'm not a good flyer). I landed on her arm and acted really COOL.....i laughed at her and said "are you okay?". Hey, i can't let her know that this darn swing just scared the heck out of me, hehehe. Mom thinks that this swing is "non-shreddable", it's made out of really hard java wood and bamboo. Mom bought it at "" was the cheapest place she could find. They come in 3 different sizes from Cockatiel to Amazon(i have) to Macaw and with 2 or 3 tiers. Prices range from 34.00 to 100.00 dollars. When you search for it use the name " java gym ". They would look super in your outside-jungle. Let me know if you will get them and if you like them. See you guys soon, Birdie-hugs from Simu & gang

  Hi Ricky!
Wow I just LOVE the setup you have! I want a room like that for my fids!!!!! Looks like lots of fun!!!!! Stop by and visit us - Riley is a CAG too! Here’s a vote for you and a birdie poem:

I love birds, I love them so,
Life without them I’ll never know.
Each day starts with a meeting,
Chirps and whistles it’s their own special greeting.
Fresh fruits and veggies to wash and chop,
Served with warm birdie bread to fill each crop.
Toys of wood, leather and bells,
Makes for fun with loud squawking yells.
Feathers and pellets all over my floor,
Does not deter me from loving them more.
As the sun fades we share kisses and scritches,
Then it’s off to each cage with sweet dream wishes.

If you enjoyed that, please stop by the Bird Contest section on this website and give us your vote in the poetry contest – we are on page 4! Mom would like to add another member to our flock and by winning a new cage, this would encourage Daddy to let her do so!

Come visit me, Riley, Tinkerbell, Tiki & Sayde Rose.

  Hallo Freunde,
Huuh, sounds like you've had a really good time at the Parrot Jungle, sounds wonderful. So glad you and der kleine Enkel enjoyed it there, especially because you had to pay to see parrots, hehehe. Wish i could go there myself, but it's a little to far to go, but it sure sounds like a lot of fun. I'm in the process to fix the birdroom up a bit more, put a bouncing rope in for Simu, but so far he gave it only a "dirty" look, hahaha. I'm looking for them big swings like you have, but could not find them. Any advise where to look for them? Can't wait to see them new pix you're going to put up, with them ropes. I'll bet they all like it, especially Big Red & Blue. Wishing you all a great week and all of you get our vote as usually. Talk to you soon, and please let me know about them big swings. Danke!!! The Cadiz-gang
