  Hi Hulk
July 11th BOTM POST
Hello to all my BC friends. Zeena here today to take a peek into some nestboxes around the world, and take a look at some of the amazing Amazon mutations being bred today. Please note that most are not currently available to the public. Some of these awesome finds are selling for as much as 125,000US each to breeders.
One day these new color mutations will be found in pet homes as newer mutations occur. Their unique beauty and charm is well worth the look. I hope you will enjoy them as much as I have. There are several renowned pioneers in color mutation breeding working in the USA in conjunction with international breeders.r Howard Voren is one such dedicated breeder. He has specialized in mutation breeding in several species with great success. All pictures show "pure" mutations, they are not hybrids. Hybrids are a breeding of two diverse species to produce specimens with characteristics of both species.
To breed mutations which occur spontaneously, breeders work with like marked birds or carriers which genetically have the potential to reproduce the desired new mutation. With continuing breeding the new mutation becomes stabilized, and will improve in size, pigmentation and over-all characteristics. Mutation breeding does not weaken the natural health of the species as they are produced from "normal coloured" birds. Many mutations are sex-linked which will only produce specimens of one sex or the other or must have one parent that is the desired mutation to reproduce mutation offspring. Mutation breeding is a challenging and rewarding field of aviculture built on patience and hard work.
I wish to thank everyone for their daily votes and blogs. I read each one and have learned a lot from your input.
I have added the mutation name to each picture for easier identification.
with love and scritches Zeena 255116

Well, it is slightly cooler (upper 80s) here again today, so Mom was able to take me out for my sunbath at 10AM instead of 9. And yes, I was very good and cooperative. Guess I learned my lesson on Tuesday. We had a nice time, but no interesting pedestrians today. Perhaps they heard I was out there and were too scared to come by.

Mom is so very glad she has her Celebrex now, but apparently she has to build up to them all over again after the nearly two week break. Last night was a very bad and sleepless night due to arthritis pain. Dad had to sleep on the couch, because Mom just couldn't get comfortable. She finally gave up and read for a while. Sitting up in bed is about the only comfy position when it gets bad.

Mom goes to see the GI doc this afternoon to get the results of her endoscopy two weeks ago. Hopefully not only the pre-cancerous Barrett's esophagus has stayed clear, but she is hoping the ulcer is gone too. She has been a very good girl drinking iced tea for her headaches instead of Excedrin. I just realized Mom sounds all sickly, but she really isn't. After all, 4 days and nearly 8 hours a week at the gym must mean she's doing something right!

  Hi Madison Man, great news at my home today-Jenny
So sorry I wasn't on BC and FB much yesterday, dad was so busy prepping our home and a cage for our new flock member! He is a bird we have known for a long time, and loved him for all those years! He is a Citron Crested Too, and is the spitting image of our Angel! His name is "LIMON", we like that name and we are going to keep it that way! He is very sweet, but like all Toos, he has a stubborn side, we'll just deal with it! His current mom is having severe separation anxiety, and we fully understand that pain! He will be coming to our home tonight, and will became a full fledged Dallas flock member, needless to say, dad and all the rest of us are very excited and full of anticipation to see what the future brings! Have a great throw back Thursday, we certainly plan to, and give my love to all in your happy bird home...

Love from Jenny, & my Dallas family

PS~Limon has rekindled the spark of love in my daddy he thought was gone forever, life has taken turn for the better, we have not seen him this happy for more than 2 years!

Thanks so much for BOTD! I was a happy boy yesterday. Mom topped off the basil plants and gave me all the flowers to munch! What a treat. I didn't get a new pinata, though. She says that's coming in a few days.
It has been pretty dry here. There have been lots of showers and scattered thundershowers in the Pittsburgh area for the past week, but they seem to be bypassing us. It rained the other day for about 3 minutes, and that's all. Mom is watering all the pots daily, and needs to get the hose out to soak the ground a little.
Tonight mom is working an evening event in Dinosaur hall, which should be fun. She likes doing evening events, and it is only scheduled til 7:30, so she should make it home before dark. We will have her attention and cage cleaning skills when she gets back. It should be a pool day, too.
Falco is still fighting mom on the meds and limping, but each day her leg looks a bit better. Mom's hands are beginning to look shredded, though. Hahaha!
I hope you are having a great day and getting sun and love. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Hulk
Yeah, the cost of using film, waiting for it to be developed (even with the one hour option), and having to go thru negatives if want reprints are not missed by our mom one bit. So good with digital can crop stuff out of pics, adjust brightness, etc, etc.

We are not surprised at the latest from rule abuser. Though if she did have dental work know that can be uncomfortable and so glad we have beaks!

When see the unknown fruit/veggie on a cooking show good that they usually describe the taste as well. Wonder if tourists from other countries that have different veggies/fruit would be hesitant to try what is unknown to them?

Hopefully you'll have good weather for your mom's vacation so she and you can both enjoy time outside.

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

  Hi Hulk,
yes mum was very happy about the FB orders. It was only 2 but better than nothing.She made this cute brown headed parrot for a lady in Idaho & send it off today. She had never made one of those before & was surprised how nice it turned out. The lady loves it.
Thanks for liking the pics. Yes she has a lot of stuff & she's making more & more all the time!
Was just an ordinary day here today, a little on the cold side, but sunny.

I heard from Squeaks too! Good to hear from her.
I heard that our weather will warm up to 72 soon, hope so.
Well, the parronts made another trip to see a polo match ... no luck again. Mom talked to one of the riders and he said the field was fine. Maybe they will play on Thursday and Friday. They have to get in 3 matches before the other team and referees leave on Sunday. It was 68 degrees today and should be 72 tomorrow. I hope to get some patio time!
As for the court case about Ozzi, even her parronts haven't heard the outcome today. One of the boys mom's was on FB complaining that the boys are being harassed. I hope we can get an updated new law ... Ozzi's Law.

wel i got to be outside on the porch today for about 1-1/2 hours. it was a beautiful day around 80 with no humidity and a nice breeze with plenty of sunshine. mom trimmed Coris beak on the porch and i sat there and watch Cori cry like a big baby. then mom gave Cori and bath and took her out in the sun to dry off. a family of blue jays just fledged and the family was making all this noise as the parents and babies kept calling back and forth to each other. then the one blue jay parent spotted Cori and started making calls like a hawk. for a moment mom was worried about me sitting on the porch til she realized it was the blue jays trying to scare us away from the babies.

HAPPY HUMPDAY

My Mom left early this morning as skin sis came before 9am to bring her to Zumba class and then from there they went over the Bridge to Wareham to the LLBean store there and had to deal with the traffic going up and back,then they went to Hyannis so Mom could pay her RE taxes and they went to pay the NStar bill and went to the dollar store,then they went from Hyannis to Falmouth and then got stuck in a major accident as they were taking Nana home,lots of police cars,fire engines and ambulances,the traffic was really backed up far down the road and no one was moving.An SUV slammed into a car and there were at least two people on the ground in the road on stretchers one on the side of the road by the wooded area.Mom never made it home til nearly 7pm and then she had to get us all cleaned(Dad had given us our snacks and let my frother Kallie out)and get dad something for dinner and put what groceries she had away.Then tomorrow the skin sibs are supposed to come over and help her get all the junk she cleared out from the mud room to the dump and the donation sites!It's going to be another busy day here again and then Friday she's going out again to get what errands she didn't finish today and try and help Nana with some things in her yard and house!
My dad had a nice quiet birthday having his dinner out on the deck with us joining him also!Mom had made him multi grain spaghetti and we got to have some too!
How awful that your poor sweet Momma fell into you puddle of water like that!I sure hope her leg wasn't hurting for too long but my mom knows just how painful that can be especially when you fall a certain way with all your weight on that side!
It was 82 here today and hot but so far there's a nice breeze coming through the windows so so far we don't need to use the a/c.
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses and a greyt hump day too!Loving you always and forever,Kallie

  Hi Hulk!
I sure have missed you! My typist has been busy since she got back from visiting my g-ma and she hasn't been doing my blogging! Even the head scritches have been a little below average! She is tired and busy doing stuff around the house.
My skin sis and her husband had their baby two weeks early! Mom wrote them an email becos the hurricane was going up the coast and heading for Virginia so mom said babies like to come during hurricanes! And bingo! The very next morning, the baby wanted to come on the 4 th of July! But then he waited until July 5 th right after midnite to make his grand entry! All are doing fine!
Mom is busy working on the mermaid mosiac wall in the backyard. And she is swimming every day. Yesterday a big flock of flamingos flew over and she loved that! I'm glad she is back and i have been doing my dancing and kisses with her but i woukd really like longer scritches! And more yogurt for breakfast!
It will be a full moon this weekend- want to moon watch on the beach? Did you go to Dixies' wedding? I was so mad i missed it! My parronts had a 4 th of July bbq here to go to and also with the eggscitement of the baby, mom forgot!
Big hugs and a very beaky kiss!

  Heya, Hulk!
What is that stuff that people say: Eat your veggies? I agree, broccoli would not be one I would eat. Not even for mac and cheese!

Wow. Today was so great--sunny, no humidity, in the 70's (low) with a breeze. The only thing better would have been if Mom was home all day...but I got head scritches and beaky ones, too, so I have to say it was perfect!

Mom says she was in meetings all day, so she is surprised that she is not super wiped out--those meetings can do that, I guess. The meetings were good, too, and a lot got accomplished. I have no idea what any of that really means, but I will take her word that it was good.

I dont allow anyone to touch my pin feathers other then on my back and mom says she wont touch me there. I am sure if I would let mom touch the pin feathers it would feel better but they hurt and I dont want them touched.
Boy I messed up this morning! Mom always puts me on the wastebasket in the morning to do my hurry up and then I get a treat. Well this morning I didn’t do the hurry up and mom kept sitting there with the treat bowl in her hand waiting on me. I finally flew to the bowl and promptly made mom lose the treat bowl and all the treats were on the floor. Needless to say I didn’t get a treat or do the hurry up for that matter either. Mom put me back on my condo and she swept up the mess and in the wastebasket it went. Now I must remember this tomorrow morning so I get the treat and not the wastebasket.!! “Anyone of us can be a rainbow in some ones cloud.” Leaving a vote for you …Hugs~~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Hallelujah! The mailman delivered my mom's meds finally yesterday afternoon. It will take a bit for them to build back up in her system, but she already feels better after one yesterday and again this morning (she takes two per day). It is a 90 day supply, so hopefully she won't have this kind of problem again. And next refill she won't trust them to ship it as soon as she puts in the order; she will check it every day afterwards to make sure it ships.

Needless to say after yesterday's stupid temper tantrum that cost me my sunbath, I was a very good boy this morning. We got outside at 9, and it was still a bit cloudy and quite comfortable. The clouds burned off before we came in at 10, but it never got too hot. However it is supposed to hit upper 80s today, so early is still better. A couple passed by across the street (so I allowed it) walking their Irish Setter and their cat in a pet carriage just like we birds use. They admired me, of course. How could they help it?

The Ara Project Part # 3

Happy Humpday everybirdie. Zeena here with the conclusion of the Ara Project series. I hope you have enjoyed visiting with these highly endangered Macaws, and learning about what is being done to help save the species in the wild. I wish to thank each one of my friends for your continuing votes and words of encouragement. I love receiving input from my friends, and learning more.

The Scarlet Macaw (Ara macao) is found in lowland rainforest and savanna, in Mexico remote portions of humid forest, on the Pacific slope in Honduras, in Costa Rica deciduous and humid forest, Colombia in lowland rainforest and gallery forest and Venezuela in rainforest and savanna. Although the Scarlet Macaw is listed by IUCN as least concern there is evidence of a population decline in the wild. It is listed by CITES as Appendix I. The declines in this species' population are due to habitat loss and fragmentation (expected to lose 20-35% of habitat within its range over 40 years (Soares-Filho et al. 2006, Bird et al. 2011)), the wild bird trade and hunting for feathers and food. Current population estimates are 20,000 – 50,000; total Central American population no more than 4000. Many outside conditions could suddenly drop numbers to the point where they will be unable to rebuild populations.
Reasons for decline in population;

Exploitation for the former wild bird pet trade
Habitat loss and fragmentation due to logging and agriculture
Illegal trapping for in-country trade, food and feathers
Shooting for the sport of it
Ecology

The Scarlet Macaw is found in lowland rainforest and savanna, in Mexico remote portions of humid forest, on the Pacific slope in Honduras, in Costa Rica deciduous and humid forest, Colombia in lowland rainforest and gallery forest and Venezuela in rainforest and savanna. Birds are encountered in pairs, parties of 3-4 or flocks up to 30 individuals as they forage on fruits, fruits and nuts of various palms, and seeds, flowers and nectar.

Tomorrow we are going to stop and take a peek into a few nestboxes to discover what eggciting chicks are inside. Bring your cameras for these awesome new arrivals in aviculture.

Thanks for helping me to be BOTD today! I'm so happy to be in the castle for a day.
Mom is trying her best to get an appointment for the cataract removal, but so far, no luck. She's waiting for a phone call which may get her an appointment sooner than the end of the month.
There's not much news here. It's going to be a lazy summer day with mom at the pool and later spending time with us, hopefully outside if it's not too hot.
Falco's still limping, but mom thinks her leg is looking better. Did I tell you she clipped Falco's wings? After leading her on a 15 minute tour of the house the other night because she didn't want to go to bed, mom finally took her into the kitchen, and clipped her.
I hope you are having a good day and getting some sunshine and love. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Hulk
Thanks for liking the baby pics. Good thing for digital as know there will be plenty more taken.

Really is best to document any and all work related injury as never know. Certainly would want to ensure that doc bills get paid.

Can't imagine that any veggie would taste that much better than what we already have but imagine some of the fruits might be worth tasting. If saw it being used on the food programs might be tempted to try it, but we're good with just the normal ones the parront grew up with.

Another warm day here. Hopefully you'll get less wind to be able to get outside if not raining.

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

  Hi Hulk,
it's been a few days, but now i'm back! She just posted some pics of her market stall. It was an outdoor one & not really that busy, as mum would have hoped. She did alright, but it could have been a lot better, to say the least. People just don't seem to want to spend money anymore, but everybody loved her stuff, as always. One lady was so kind to let mum put one of her doggy sweaters on her dog, just to see how it looks. It was too cute, but the lady didn't buy it!
The pics of the market stall on FB created a lot of "likes" & even promoted some orders.
Hope you're having a good week.

kind of a gloomy day with rain on and off all day long. around 6 pm the clouds parted and a ray of sunshine came through the gloomy sky.

mom has been suspended from Facebook again because of a inappropriate comment she posted on a video of a blue and gold macaw chained to a steel perch saying WTF. it turns out the blue and gold macaw is owned by the raper ludicrous and i guess he was offended by moms comment. mom is standing by what she said even if it was said in an inappropriate manner. no parrot should be chained and forced to stand on a steel perch. obviously the parrot chews the wooden perches so that was taken away from it. all mom said was are you too cheap and lazy to care for your parrot properly. this is a form of parrot abuse. of course mom didn't use those exact words.

Really? You didn't get all this rain? They are calling off the polo match again for tomorrow ... cause of the rain.
Another dark, cold and rainy day today. So, I had to play inside. At least I had my favorite breakfast of scrambled eggs. Mom's window's 8 did an upgrade and now she is missing things. It will take a while to find them again as they changed everything around ... I'm thinking that i5 is behind this ... hehehe.

Don't those dips in the water bowls feel so good on a hot day?We don't have the luxury of getting to dip in our water bowl because Mom has us all on water bottles and you should see me trying to get that thing to give me a shower!I rub up against it and make it move in its holder so I can get the water to come out on my back!We had some wind here right when my parronts were trying to eat dinner on the deck,the umbrella twirled around and then the deck table started walking across the deck so my dad had to take the umbrella off and eat with the sun full in his face,which he didn't like too much!
I sure do hope that your sweet Momma has good weather for her vacation come Saturday and that the two of you can go for some stroller rides and enjoy the outdoors!We'll be inside for the next several days because its supposed to rain here starting tomorrow,UUGGGHH!No more rain and storms!We've had enough already!Wishing you a greyt night,and sending you all my love,Kallie

  Heya, Hulk!
Oh! Turning up your beak at the chicken! Oh dear! Of course, the broccoli is not my favorite either--but mac and cheese? YUM!

Oh, today it was windy and in the 70's. The humidity went away--yippie!--and the sun was out. Mom said it was just gorgeous out there when she was able to get out. And she had a better day today, too. She felt much better as she was dealing with things that she knew, so it helped. Tomorrow is meetings most of the day, so that will be okay, too.

Other than that, not much else happening. That's okay by me! I get my head scritches and shoulder time...and Mom!

Hoppy Toosday!
Your buddy,
Kaji

Oh I wont allow mom to touch the pin feathers at all. In fact I dont like my head scritched or touched either. Of course I like my back rubbed and mom knows that just causes more hormonal problems so she wont do that for me either LOL. I got to go outside today but this evening we had a storm and lots of rain but it got worse up North from here so was happy it wasnt any worse at least. yes sure glad BC is better so far tonight.
Today when mom went to the fruit stand and grocery store she came home with this wee little orchid and she said you put an ice cube a week to water it. Mom thinks the ice would be too cold so she will just use one and half tablespoon of water instead. Moms cousin has a big one and that is where mom first saw it but got the small one. I say either way bet she will kill it LOL. Guess mom figures at least it will be cheaper to kill the small one then the big one though. “Anyone of us can be a rainbow in some ones cloud.” Leaving a vote for you …Hugs~~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

It was quite a hot humid day here with the temps at 81.Mom was busy doing her house chores and trying to see if she could fit some of the stuff she cleared out from the mud room in her car,she's got lots of recyclables and some of the skin sibs shoes and stuff they left behind she has to take to the donation bins or church thrift shop!She's going out tomorrow to get the errands done she couldn't do on Friday because of the storm.After Mom figured out the bills and got most of them ready to go out she took us all outside for some sunshine and more showers!We got to join them for dinner and got a big chicken bone with lots of chicken on it and some corn on the cob and multigrain spaghetti!Even my picky baby fister Candida loved the spaghetti,she even had two helpings of it!
I do hope that you get good weather for your sweet Mom to be home with you on her day off so you can go outside too and enjoy the sunshine!Mom would feel the same way about not feeling comfortable going to the baby shower and it might make her feel at ease if her brother went with her!
I'm wishing you a greyt Toosday and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses!Loving you always and forever,Kallie

  Hi Hulk
Hello Everybird, Zeena here with the continuing article on the Ara Project. Today we will look at the Great Green Macaw ( Military or Buffon's). We will look at their distribution and what has pushed them to the point of extinction.


Once prevalent throughout the entire Caribbean, Great Green Macaw (Ara ambiguus) populations have declined alarmingly in recent years due to poaching and deforestation, in particular the cutting of Mountain Almond trees. BirdLife International states" that over the past 50 years global populations have been reduced by half." A census conducted in the Cordillera de Chongon Colonche and Esmeraldas Province in Ecuador in 2010 found only 8 birds, with the current population in all of Ecuador suspected to be 30-40 birds (E. Horstman in litt. 2012). Recent conservation efforts in Costa Rica have stabilized numbers with less than 300 birds and an estimated 25-35 breeding pairs remaining (PsittaScene Aug. 2011). There are less then 1000 individuals in South American.
Factors contributing to decline in numbers;

Unsustainable exploitation, poaching for the wild bird trade
Subspecies guayaquilensis reportedly shot as a crop-pest
Conversion of forest to oil-palm and banana plantations, causing the loss of the large Mountain Almond
Increased impact of logging, agriculture, illegal coca plantations, gold mining and hunting
Illegal trapping for in-country trade, food and feathers

Ecology

This macaw prefers lowland humid forest and also strongly deciduous forest; in Costa Rica lowland primary forest. It is found at altitudes to 600m (1968 ft) in Costa Rica and1000m (3280 ft) in Panama. Less gregarious than other large macaws, it is found in pairs and groups of 3-4 birds, foraging on fruits and flowers.

Tomorrow we will take a closer look at the plight of the Scarlet Macaws, and what we can do to help save the remaining populations.

with love and scritches Zeena 25116

  Hi Hulk
This morning I didn't want anything to do my with strip of banana peel either. However there won't be any more until Mom and Dad go to the store on Saturday, so maybe by then I will like it again.

Well, I messed up today. Don't know what got into me, but after being so good about getting in the carrier for almost two weeks straight, today I got my tail feathers in a bunch and wouldn't cooperate with my mom at all. I even nipped (gently) at her cheek when she had me on her shoulder to show I was not in a good mood. She retaliated by leaving for the gym, but I know she was planning on going anyway. The problem is that by the time she got home again at 12:30 it was up to 92 degrees, and sunbaths were no longer an option for today. I had better get it right tomorrow!

My mom did not get her Celebrex yesterday, so today she has been checking the mail box every hour since she got home from the gym even though she knows he usually doesn't deliver until around 3. She is trying to stay away from the Aleve today, and doing zumba did help some.

My lovely SweetPepper's poor mom is still in a lot of pain, and until the antibiotics reduce the infection in her tooth the dentist can't do anything. So she may or may not feel up to blogging today. Don't worry if you don't hear from her. Kaji and I are keeping a close eye on the situation.

  Hi Hulk
I tried the peas and carrots one, but I like the coconut one better. I can't wait until that order gets here!
If you didn't read it on the calendar page yesterday, I'll spread the news today. Mom didn't blog yesterday because her eye was scratchy all day long after the shot, and made it hard to focus. But, the news is terrific! The Macular Degeneration is halted, no new bleeding. She got the okay for the cataract surgery, so she has to make that appointment, and hopefully she will be able to see clearly again. She still has to go for shots, but her next one is scheduled for 2 months from now.
Falco's leg is much better, but mom is still giving her the antibiotics as long as the doc prescribed, so she's on meds until next Wed. It looks much better, though and she's walking normally again.
Not much else is new here, hope you are having another perfect summer day! Hugs, Willie
