  Hi Hulk
I've had a few BC problems today. After every bird had the problem of signing in ... it's been a daily problem for me (weeks). I did get an email from them today ... amazing. But it didn't say that they were working on it. Maybe after getting daily emails from me for over 2 weeks, they will get the hint?
I woke up to snow again this morning. But, the sun finally came out in the afternoon. Looks like rain for tomorrow. Maybe it will get rid of some snow. Where is the ground?
Not much going on here. Mom is sick with a sinus infection and cold. I took good care of her.

This morning was another dark dismal day with our temperatures highs being 42 and the lows being 33.Right now its 37 and fairly cold.Skin bro came and picked Mom up at around 8:00am this morning.So Mom really had no time to do much of anything except to clean all our cages quickly and feed us all.Then she collected the trash and recyclables and skin bro loaded them in his car while she got Dixie in his carrier and wrapped him with a blanket.When they got to Nana's Mom got Dixie settled in his cage there and set his food bowl down for him and he immediately started eating then skin bro and Mom collected Nana's trash and recyclables and they loaded them in Nana's car and they went to the dump,when they came back the VNA came to work out with Nana.The VNA had Nana walking over and over around her house with a cane.They are trying to get her out of the walker.But she is not to use the cane when the VNA is not there and she is not to go outside yet as the ground is too uneven and Nana promises she isn't going to try as she doesn't want land back in the hospital or rehab again!Mom and Nana were supposed to try and make at least one loaf of Easter Bread for Easter but that never happened so if Mom makes it over to Nana's earlier tomorrow they can start it then,Nana will mix all the ingredients and Mom will do the kneading.Then skin bro is going to take Mom grocery shopping at Market Basket to pick up some things for Easter dinner.They both have no idea what they will have for Easter dinner this year as Nana isn't feeling well with her broken hip,Nana doesn't know if they can make ravioli's.Mom said she wouldn't mind trying to make them as she's been helping make them for a while now.After they left Nana's skin bro drove Mom into Falmouth and he bought Mom and himself a medium blizzard at DQ and then he took Mom to the Dollar Tree to get our dad some funnels that he needed.Then he took Mom home and it started to rain again and got dark as night.When Mom got home she made dinner for my dad,cleaned all our cages and dad had already given us our snack and put our light on for us and filled our humidifier.Please accept our apologies for not being able to chat longer,Mom is so tired and had another long day and is going to have another long day tomorrow again,I'll be back tomorrow to chat more I hope Mom can stay awake long enough to do so!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses my sweet buddy,Loving you always and forever,Kallie

Oh, Mom misses seeing the cranes like she did at her old job. All she sees is the seagulls now, and the geese at times. The seagulls are kinda icky, if you ask me. Not my favorite birds.

It was nice and the rain was not too bad, either. Chilly though at the lake. But at least she was able to wear her heavier spring coat today. Tomorrow? Who knows?

  Hi ya Hulk~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's been too long since I got blogs out to every bird and I wish I had something exciting to share but it's been rather dull around here.
Dad is home for the day since he had to go to his doctor. Just the usual 6 month check up because of the cholesterol medicine he takes. You would think the cat would be all over him since he doesn't see him much but Merlin is still following mom everywhere. She is the one who feeds us so I can't blame him for sticking close by! You wouldn't want to miss a snack!
I will be having "turtle tank" cleaning duties once mom gets back from dropping Ian off at work. He wasn't suppose to work today but someone called out again! Ian picks up most of his hours that way!
I have the very important job of watching George and Gracie while mom washes the tank. They go into a little box which mom calls there summer home! I watch to make sure they don't escape! Gracie is always wanting to get out although I have no idea where she thinks she is going to go. It's a turtle thing I guess!
I hope your day is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Hulk
this is a continuation of birds intelligence from blog on 3-27. we messed up on the order.
Examples of bird intelligence include…
Carrion crows in Japan that deliberately place nuts in roadways, wait for cars to crush the nuts then retrieve the nut meats, all while coordinating around traffic lights to keep safe.
Woodpecker finches in the Galapagos Islands that trim sticks to the proper length for use as tools to forage for insects.
Green herons and other heron species that use bread fed to ducks or picnic leftovers as bait to attract fish for their hunting.
Blue tits in the 1920s that learned which color of milk caps on delivered milk had the most cream (whole milk) and pierced those caps to drink the cream.
Western scrub-jays that hold funerals for dead birds by making loud noises and avoiding the corpse, behavior that may be warning other birds of fatal threats.
Northern mockingbirds that recognize individuals who may be a threat to their nests and will attack only those individuals rather than attacking all passersby indiscriminately.
Aplomado falcons that hunt cooperatively in pairs and thereby increase their hunting success by a large margin through this teamwork.
Jays that cache hundreds of seeds and nuts in fall and manage to retrieve the majority of them over the course of the winter, exhibiting great recall for their hiding places.
Other well known examples of bird intelligence that could be attributed to instinct but still show at least some higher mental capability include:
Amazing nest architecture with intricate construction
Returning to the same ranges, even the same nests, for many years
Ability to navigate migration safely despite changing landmarks
Play behaviors, including taunting cats or playing with objects for entertainment
Recognizing who refills feeders and interacting with that person
Curiosity when responding to pishing or investigating new stimuli
Showing emotions through courtship, caring for nestlings, etc.
Some Are Smart, Some Are Stupid
Like any animal, not all birds are equally intelligent. Ornithologists generally agree that corvids (jays, ravens, crows, rooks, jackdaws, etc.) and parrots are among the smartest bird species and that social, gregarious birds often exhibit more intelligent behavior than solitary species. Still, every backyard birder has seen that one "stupid" bird at their feeders who just can't figure anything out, while another bird of the same species seems to be an Einstein in comparison. Watching birds and witnessing their intelligent behavior can be a joy for backyard birders, and learning more about bird intelligence in quantifiable ways is sure to keep ornithologists busy for decades to come.

How is your mom feeling? I hope she is better. That is too bad she feels awful and has to work all weekend! Our weekend was pretty quiet too. We had a big cold front come in on Friday, no rain but high winds. So we didn't get to spend much time outside. Yesterday mom went out with us for a little while but when the winds got too strong and the cages and furniture started dancing, she brought us in quickly! Today it is nice and sunny and warm but the winds are still blowing pretty good. We are outside anyway, no dancing cages yet! hehehe!
That was pretty cool we got 3rd place for couples in the contest. I was surprised. Well, not becos I don't think we are an awesome looking couple, but becos there were so many greyt pics. I have been flying around getting caught up on BC this morning and the Easter pictures are really good - much better than the St. Pats pictures! Wow! There are some really creative people on here!
Last nite my parronts went to the fair in the village and ate churros and salbutes and rode the party bus (double decker bus with blaring music that goes up and down the streets in the village). Mom won't take me. Rats! No dancing!
I was surprised we have good internet today. We didn't have any yesterday and Sat. nite it was so slow, mom was reading a book between pages loading so we finally gave up on it.
Are you doing anything special for Easter?

Haha, mom has written in Sharpie on every CD she has ever burned. It's permeable with alcohol, acetone, and a few other chemicals. On CDs it will eventually leak through to the playing surface. Mom suspects that will take longer than she has to live, though, so don't worry about it.
That was a beautiful service for Angel Mario yesterday. What a great way to celebrate his life. We were there, but silent, as mom was working. In my gallery are 2 pics of what she was doing yesterday. One of them shows where she was set up, right by the camel driver and lions, and the other shows what she had out on the cart: lion pelt, cheetah pelt, sable horn covering, giraffe ankle bone, an impala skull, a gorilla skull, and a warthog skull. The pelts were new, and got a lot of attention. It was a good afternoon for talking to folks.
Today at the center, mom did the RVS room again, and was supposed to feed the bats. When she got to the treatment room, Jess (staff) had already fed 4 of them, and cleaned their terrarium. She was feeding one of the baby squirrels, and invited mom to feed the other one. Mom gladly did that! She hasn't fed babies for nearly a year, so it was a nice change.
Speaking of squirrels, when mom walked the dogs this morning, there was a squirrel near the bird feeders in front of the house. It ran when it saw mom and the girls, and it ran right into the hide box that mom brought home and got nailed up last week, so it was one of the new kids! Mom was happy to see that. She got more squirrel mix while she was at the center, as things aren't really growing outside yet. So they will have food for at least another week.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Hulk
Many birds seemed to have problems with BC during the Milonga but we didn't. Always eggspect it to be slow. We did get thru all the awards and heard some singing and got to visit a bit too so that's not bad. It is nice that the contests have the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place so more can have a prize.

Hmmmm, guess if your mom saw you doing the mating dance should've been a bit more careful. Never fun for parronts to get nipped hard enough to draw blood.

I'm having BC problems daily for over 2 weeks now. I email them daily and they ignore me. It keeps freezing up and then says BC not responding! Ya think?
Thanks for liking my Milonga outfit. Sam did a greyt job on the pic.
The eagle eggs got too wet and rotted. The parronts are doing fine now and are repairing the nest.
My parronts are waiting for the snow to go away ... big project. they have to remove the side deck and re-build it
Today we had more snow with freezing rain. Maybe we'll see a couple minutes of sun on Monday. I'm waiting for beach weather.

This morning was a bright sunny morning with the highs being 36 and the lows of 30.Its 28 right now.Mom got us up and cleaned our cages and fed us and then skin sis came over around 9:30 this morning with Peepers and Celine.Mom got them set up in a spare cage and then Mom,Dad and skin sis took off for IHOP as my dad had been wanting to try their criss cross croissants so they went and had them,then dad took them through the car wash to see all the pretty colors of the soap as it went on the windows of the car,looking like a rainbow.When they came home,Mom did birdie cures on every birdie,nails,beaks and flights and then skin sis wanted to bake something with Mom as this would be her last time to do so as she's going in for surgery next week.So they made seven layer cookies,cherry dump pie,and mock pumpkin pie.Mom gave skin sis half of what they baked to take home with her and skin sis left around 5:30pm.Mom cleaned up the kitchen and all the baking dishes and mixing bowls and utensils.
Mom and all of us here send more warm loving hugs to your sweet Momma so she can feel even more better tomorrow,give her our love and tell her she is in our thoughts and prayers to feel much better and to get rid of that sore throat and cough.We only want her to be her healthy self again.Dixie is eating very little for Mom,she will be taking him to Nana's and hopefully he'll want to eat for her there again.It seems he really likes it there for some reason.Mom is holding off on weighing him til mid week until he starts eating again.
They both attended Mario's Memorial and it was just so beautiful,tears were coursing down both Mom and skin sis's faces,it was such a beautiful ceremony and all of us including Mom and skin sis are so thankful to all those involved with making it such a wonderful and special time.We all just can't thank you enough for all the outpouring of love and caring you have given us here,you have put the sun back in the sky for us and in our hearts.

BC is being weird tonight. Ate my note to Miss Chyna, and got the squakatiel for Willie x 3. Sheesh!

Glad to hear that your Mom did not have any problems getting in to work today. We had rain but nothing like it was supposed to be. I am happy though that it didn't freeze. So is Mom.

Yah, it will be sweet to beat KY on Saturday. They are a good, good team, but I think we have the stuff this year to do it. Sure want the team to go all the way!

Not much happening here. It was a lovely day with Mom. Colder, with winds that gusted to 40 mph. Sounded like winter when you were near the window in Mom's bedroom. Nice and toasty inside though.

We stopped over at Mario's memorial too, but think we mixed up the times. In any case, we did get there and it was lovely.

  Hi Hulk
The Purpose of Play
All play that wild birds may use helps them develop necessary survival skills. Even adult birds may continue to play and refine their abilities, though not necessarily with the same frequency as juvenile birds play.
Manipulation play helps birds get more coordinated to build nests, capture prey or extract food from different sources. This type of play keeps bills and talons in good condition and builds up the necessary muscle strength and dexterity for intricate actions.
Investigation play teaches young birds about the world they inhabit, including edible and inedible foods and what objects are safe to touch. As birds investigate more, they refine their ability to cache objects and develop their senses.
Chasing play strengthens wing muscles and helps young birds develop greater agility in the air, or for terrestrial birds, strengthens their legs and helps them be more agile when running. This also helps carnivorous birds develop sharper hunting skills.
Taunting play sharpens a bird's reflexes and increases their agility. It also helps them learn to anticipate prey reactions or how to avoid predators, and will be useful for mobbing behaviors or defending their territory.
Balancing play strengthens foot and leg muscles and helps birds learn how to use their wings to counterbalance air currents or disruptions. Balancing can also be useful for different types of foraging or courtship displays.
Curiosity play teaches birds more about their world, expanding their knowledge of both threats and benefits and helping them react to the unexpected. Curious birds can be more adaptable and will be more successful when encountering changes in their habitat.
Mimicry behavior teaches young birds how to act like adults of their species and learn essential skills such as proper sounds and songs or how to use their unique bills or other physical attributes to the best effect.
While different play behaviors all have a purpose in helping birds survive, some birds do seem to play just for the sheer joy and fun of the activity. As with many types of bird behaviors, the exact purpose of all play is not yet understood, even by dedicated ornithologists, but birders can still enjoy watching the playful behavior of birds. Every time they see their feathered friends engage in another game, they learn just a bit more about birds even as the playing birds are learning more about their world.

Great to see you at the Milonga. Congrats on your award. Such fun we had.

Uh, oh, bit your mom? Yikes! Guess it'll be less holding you or less out time until you calm down. We imagine a bite from your beak would hurt a lot. One of us drew blood once but it was totally mom's fault. Our dad can't stand when we are overly squawky. In those instances we are put into another room and the door shut. It's fine since we have each other.

Yep, fish fries are great! My train is pretty much toast, I've been going nonstop at it for a few days now.
Today mom got some bad news. Quincy and Danny, the bob white quail who lived at the center, got put down yesterday. It's a shame, but both boys were close to 9 years old! In the wild, they live for a year or 2, and in captivity they can survive to 5, so we were lucky to have the boys for nearly 9 years. Mom cried, of course, but she realized a few months ago that their time was short.
In other news, mom attended a mammal handling class today, and at the end, they said to take mammals off site the volunteer first had to go with staff a time or 2. Mom asked if that was necessary for her, since she's been doing that for 13 years! They told her no, they would grandfather her in, haha.
Then she worked at the museum for the Preservation Fair today. She worked at a table that showed the effects of things like water, abrasion, light, and even using the wrong kind of pen could damage artifacts, prints, photos, etc. Did you know that Sharpies are not permanent, and can cause damage to your CDs? Mom found that out today. She writes on all the CDs she burns, and uses a sharpie. Guess that stops today.
I hope you are having a great evening. We'll talk more tomorrow. Hugs to you, Willie

Gotta say that the fouls called on the Badgers were so bogus--one of them, the other team grabbed and shoved one of our players. It was pathetic, cuz the other team got the free throw. Go figure. But they won, and it was soooo sweet!

Make sure your Mom takes care on the way to work tomorrow. They say we are gonna get sleet and snow and rain and freezing rain--but you get it before we do. Sheesh! So tired of winter!!

We won 3rd Place for the Couples picture tonite at the milonga! We didn't stay too long, I think we left just as you arrived! Our internet is very slow and it is taking forever to load the pages. Picabo got 3rd place too for the Hats. Raffi got Best Overall! All the pics were so good, it was hard.
How is your weekend going? We hear it is cold up there. After being 101F here on Thursday, a cold front came in yesterday afternoon and we're in the 70s today and very windy again. Mom did take us outside for a couple of hours late in the afternoon but mostly we stayed inside and watched tv with dad all day.

  Hi Hulk
Yes, that's what I'm wearing tonight!
It was so sad to see the last egg start to hatch and not make it. The mom eagle was so sad. She kept staring at it an then wouldn't leave the nest for hours. She even tried to sit on it to keep it warm. Both eagles are perching near the nest tree.
We are out of the teens and back to sun with high 20's today. More snow coming on Sunday.
My parronts are cleaning the basement, why they do these un-fun things I just don't know?
I'm busy getting ready to party at the Milonga tonight ... see you there or blog you on Sunday.
Hugs
Chyna

Come visit me, Derby Farms, Chyna & Bailey ♥ RIP.

  Hi Hulk--
Ooooh...biting Mommy, not a good thing, hormones or no!! After all, she is the hand that feeds you, right? We don't get close enough to bite our humans, but we do enjoy strafing them...zoom!

It was cooooold today, but guess what. A crocus bloomed in Mommy's garden. YAY! Maybe spring will happen after all!!!

Hugs...

  Hi Hulk buddy from Jenny Lynn
It is still very cold here, but the sun is shinning brightly! We have a casual day planned, but we will be at the Irish Milonga, to bump wing elbows with our friends! Ziggy will be sitting at the band table with Ms Chyna, that little YCM surprised dad today by flying into the kitchen! He is fully flighted but rarely does fly, he was following his so called girlfriend 'Jen Lynn', who flies over the place! Daddy just smiled, he loves it (a little bit), LOL! Hope to see you all at the Milonga tonight! Saturday love from our home to yours, and spread our love to all in your sweet home, see ya all tomorrow...

Forever love from Jen & our Dallas family

Come visit me, Ziggy~Happy Easter & thanks aunt Mary Haines, Jenny Lynn~Loving that warm sunshine..., Limon Dallas~Love my home & still see my old mom, The Raiders~Happy New Year from the team in 2014!!, Angel Christy~Happy Easter every birdie, Ms LaLo~Happy Easter dear friends... & Mr Flash~Summer at the McAviay.

  Hi Hulk
This morning was another dark,dreary,dismal pouring rainy day here and then by late morning it all turned to snow,with big heavy flakes coming down,our highs for the day will be 34 and our lows will be 28. Its 34 right now with those big flakes of snow still coming down.Its not sticking to much just the lawns and not the deck or the walkway or the street which is good.Mom was busy today cleaning our cages and room,then she vacuumed the whole downstairs of the house and kept trying to get Dixie to eat.Ever since Mario flew to Rainbow Bridge he stopped eating.Mom has the day off today so she will be spending more time with us between playing catch up with the house chores. Its going to be an uneventful day here and that's just what we need right now,for Mom to stay home with us and not have to leave.We haven't had one of these days in quite some time now!
Your poor sweet Mom not feeling good still,please give her a warm hug from my Mom to help make her feel better and we all give her warm wing hugs too,those sore throats are just awful and it makes eating so uncomfortable.And having a headache and stiff neck is really adding to the pain of it all too,we are praying that she will start to feel better soon.Oh how could you bite her so hard like that?I sure do hope you said you were sorry!She has enough to deal with and now a big booboo on her hand from you which must be really sore if it bled like that!But I can understand where those hormones are coming from and I sure wish that winter will hurry up and be over with!
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,sweet buddy,Love Kallie

Come visit me, Gabbie, Kallie, Peepers & Dixie.

  Hi Hulk
Birds That Play
All birds engage in playful behaviors, and more intelligent bird species need greater amounts of the mental stimulation that comes from play as they develop. Bird species that can seem especially playful include…Jays, crows, rooks, ravens, magpies and other corvids,Parrots, parakeets, macaws and Keas,Tits, chickadees, nuthatches and small finches,Gulls, terns and related species.
Many social and adaptable birds also play, as do young birds of nearly all species as they socialize with their siblings in the nest. The extent of play and how much play each bird species carries into maturity varies, and different birds engage in different types of play to help them develop a range of skills.
Types of Bird Play
There are many different behaviors birds engage in that could appear to be play. The most common playful actions include…
Manipulation: Using the bill or talons to drop, toss, bend, tear, rip or otherwise manipulate objects, even objects without any food value.
Investigation: Seeking out unique objects or trying a wide range of different foods, continually noting new objects and poking or prodding them.
Chasing: Following one another in short or acrobatic flights, or chasing other objects such as insects or fluttering leaves.
Taunting: Teasing or deliberately harassing one another or other creatures, such as teasing a domestic cat or instigating fights.
Balancing: Swinging, swaying or dangling on wires or weak branches, possibly releasing and reattempting different acrobatic actions.
Curiosity: Responding to pishing or other unique noises, such as being attracted by ringtones, mechanical noises or music.
Mimicry: Imitating an adult's behavior, including physical actions such as foraging or preening as well as songs and sounds.
Not all playful birds will engage in the same behaviors, but they often try different actions and activities as they are learning new skills and refining their abilities. Play may be only between birds of the same species, while some types of play, particularly chasing or taunting, may be between birds of different species.

  Hi, Hulk
Oh, yes, if something is within beak range then not our fault if we decide to sample it. Think parronts just don't realize how far we can stretch or how quick we can chomp. Same goes for leaving a book nearby.

Our temps cooled a tad. Being in the lower 70s is so much nicer than those mid 80s. Supposed to hover 70s-80s for awhile but certainly hope we stay in the 70s range.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Hey Hulk,
Thank you Sugar for putting Mario's Celebration of life on the calendar page for all to view.

This way every birdie can come and join in.

The Castle Page number is 239094 and it will be in the Ballroom.
I'm guessing they only have 1 ballroom ? I don't want to get lost.

I guess Spot knew the Ballroom page number, that's good. :)

Since he said it starts at 4 pm EST I'll try to set up early so that if some birdies can only come in the morning it will be okay. I'll be there with my flock to welcome them. :)

Here's a vote for you my sweet friend !

Love & hugs,

Pookie

Come visit me, Angel Sallykins, Pookie strutin' new Camo duds & Laka.
