  Hi Hulk
I got out for my sunbath at 9AM this morning and it is a good thing I did too. Our high today is supposed to hit triple digits. When my mom went to get her talons (OK, she calls them nails) done and stop by the library this morning there wasn't a cloud in the sky. Very pretty blue, but no shade to speak of.

So this is Wednesday, which means my mom will leave for the gym right before 4 and not be back until a little after 6. Phooey! I do get her full time after she gets home though. We will watch a little TV, and Dad is locked out (so I won't bite him). It's just mommy and me and the TV recordings. Good times!

  Hi Hulk
It was good having mom home with you, I bet! Also playing ball sounds like a lot of fun!
Mom made a recommendation to readers in the BC Library (Cookie's page), if anyone likes thrillers/mysteries.
Dinner last night was good, the groupon was for a local Japanese restaurant, but not traditional Japanese, one of those places that puts on a show of cooking on the hibachi. It's called Saga, and the chef came out and cooked in front of mom and her sis. They shared a sushi roll for appetizers, and her sister had a tempura banana for dessert. Mom was much too stuffed to have any dessert, though. Plus, a fried banana didn't sound appealing.
Mom has her mammogram and bone density appointment today. There is a women's imaging center that does both at the same site, so that's where she'll go. They are predicting rain today, but if the walk with the dogs this morning is any indication, it will be another bright sunny day, so pool time again!
I hope you are having a bright sunshiney day with lots of hugs. Hugs from me too, Willie

  Hi, Hulk
Okay, that isn't nice of the coworkers to call during your mom's vacation. However, can also see how it would be less of a surprise if something had happened and she was already informed.

Schools around here start a lot earlier than when the parronts were lil. That's part of why it seems so much earlier. Doesn't help when stores put out holiday stuff before Halloween when they used to wait until the day after Thanksgiving.

90s? Yuck! Humid? Double yuck as know it feel like triple digits and that everyone is wet/sticky. We had a tiny bit of rain yesterday morning but was over within minutes and the rest of the day was mostly sunny and warm.

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

V4U today. Thanks for flying by to congratulate me for 10,000 votes. :) We finally saw our first hummingbird last weekend, and we've been seeing the same hummingbird every day since. We only see one so far, but maybe there are more. The mockingbird babies are getting so big. They scamper in and out of the bushes. Wishing you a nice day. From, Mayo

We had the hot and humid weather today too. Then some rain for a half hour and back to humid. Thank goodness the night is cool as we had to open the doors and windows when the power went out.
I haven't opened my presents yet. Mom will post pics.
It was a hot, humid and windy day. So why was I surprised that the power went out tonight? I need my beauty sleep ... I'm turning 4 on Wednesday! It finally came on at 12:40am. Now to catch up. Hey, it's Wednesday .... do I get my presents now mom?

it hit 90 here.as hot as it is and even with mom wearing the back brace she is loving the hot weather. it gets cold way too soon and lasts way too long. Cori got her nails done today and then a bath and mom then put on Coris harness on and took her outside to dry off. Cori said she preferred being blowed dried. i sat in my outside cage and and took several baths myself to cool off. i watched the american redstart couple come and drink from the fountain. then dad yelled at mom it was way to hot outside for me so i had to go back inside.

Today was a really hot day and it got into the 80's and was really humid.Mom worked on cleaning the bathrooms and the bedroom and got rid of more junk.Then she went downstairs and made grapefruit juice from the grapefruits she had in the fridge,then she cut up some broccoli and we all got to have some,my baby fister Candida sure did love it and actually ate it!My Dad was out all day in the hot sun painting the trim on the house and by the end of the day he was red as a lobster!Mom wouldn't take us outside til late in the afternoon because it was way too hot on the deck!We got to have several soaking showers and even got to join Mom and dad for dinner on the deck.Dad put the a/c on for Mom as soon as dinner was done so Mom could do our blogs without slipping off her chair!It will be a cage day for all of us tomorrow as Mom will be gone all day first to the gym for Zumba and then to run errands with Nana and skin sis.Dad will be home with us but he will be outside painting again and we won't see much of him.
I think that was so awesome that you got to play ball with your sweet Mom's niece!I'll bet she didn't realize just how intelligent you are!I'm so glad that that train accident wasn't near you and I hope that your sweet Mom's brother and his family weren't harmed by it either!They didn't mention it anymore tonight on the news!Candida beat on Dixie tonight and Mom had to move him into my deck cage where I preened him,his feet are so twisted and Mom is so careful that he doesn't fall,Candida is so jealous whenever my dad is close by and she can't get to him!

  Heya, Hulk!
Heya, Miss Jenny!
Oh...I have to say that if you hear the cough enough, it is worth repeating, huh? I like it when Mom makes the bathroom door creak, and I will go over by it and make creaking sounds so she will get the idea I want her to do it. We are funny feathers, huh?

Woo...we were toasty today! It got to 88 degrees, but the humidity was super high, so it felt warmer. The nice part was that it was kinda windy where Mom works, so that helped cut the heat from feeling as warm as it was. Mom did get a walk in though after lunch--she said there were not many sailboats out on the lake today. Guess people are working or something. It was a good day though, and the time pretty much flew by. I don't know anything about time flying, do you? I don't see it. Do you?

Short blog today, because Mom and I have been very busy with the August County Fair Milonga. We have our 16 pig riders! To get the names just fly on over to the milonga page #165848 and they are posted. The new riders don't have their pig assignments yet, but returnees will ride their old friends from last year. And face painting is back, plus the pie eating contest.
However please don't forget the July milonga is this Saturday, and we are all going to have a fantastic beach party at the lake.

I had a nice sunbath before my mom went to the gym this morning. I have been climbing into my carrier to play more and more often. Those toys are pretty good in there!

  Hi Hulk
Hello my dear friends. Thank you all for the lovely words of encouragement and your faithful daily votes. i hope you are enjoying viewing a few very rare and uncommon Parrots and birds. All the birds I have discussed are species that are kept in captivity. Some we will not see, or won't see available for a long time due to their rarity.
Today we will stop by to visit some very common friends, in some very interesting and striking colors. Momma Deb has raised many Green Cheeked Conures in her lifetime but none like those we will see today. Many are only available to breeders at this time due to their difficulty in reproducing their colors. I hope you will enjoy what you see.
Momma Deb and I tried to locate the current price of many of these beauties and have listed them here, just for your information sake--

American Dilutes--$2000.00 US a pair and up
American Dilutes yellow-sided---$ 3800 to 6000Us a pair
Red-Faced Yellow-sided----$2500 to 7000.US a pair
Sun Cheek -------$ 4500 to 8500US a pair
Moon Cheeks---$7000Us and up for good stock
Mint-----$5000 to 10,000US a pair
Turquoise---$500 US a pair and up
Cinnamon Turquoise---$750 US and up a pair
Recessive Pied-----$4000 to 8000US a pair and up
Red-Factored Pineapples--$300US and up per pair
Dilute Moon Cheeks---$7000US and up per pair

There are by far not all the new and shocking color mutations available but will give you a good idea of what has been hatching in Green Cheeked Conure nest boxes lately.

Habitat:
Seen in dense, low forests and woodlands. Also in moist, mossy cloud forest on E Andes where seen up to 2900m (9512 ft).

Threat Summary:
Probably declining in E Bolivia because of rapid forest clearance. They are found on CITES
Appendix II. There are flocks living in both Florida and California which can be seen in company of the wild Amazon Parrots.

It will be very hot today with temps in the mid-nineties, and heat indexes well over 100! The high humidity is a killer for dad's old COPD lungs, we are going to keep him inside today!

  Dear Mr. Hulk
Thank you for your visit and the sweet compliment! Everybirdy here has been so nice! Even Spot, who mom says is jealous of me. I look up to him, but sometimes he's intimidating!
He did give me a platinum CC to use to go shopping with! Since I came here with nothing, I'm very grateful. Mom says he is quite rich, so I was very happy to know that he likes me enough to see that I have what I need! I'm going to France on the Galileo with Miss BB and a bunch of other girlbirds to shop for clothes! Whoo Hoo! I've never been shopping before, and I'm so eggsited!

Maybe your mom can get to the pool today for a little while. It is a gorgeous day today! I think it's the best one of the week. Tomorrow we're supposed to get thunderstorms again. Usually by this time in July the grass is brown and dry, but everyone has green grass still. Mom has some grocery shopping to do, but it can wait. She needs to buy fresh fruits and veggies, but we have enough to tide us over for a few days. Today is definitely a pool day, and tonight mom and her sister will go to a Japanese restaurant for dinner. Mom bought a groupon a few weeks ago and wants to use it before it expires. Tonight will also be cage cleaning night, so we all have to be prepared to fix up our homes as soon as mom is done destroying them.
I hope you are having a bright and beautiful sunny day and getting lots of attention that you deserve. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Hulk
Good that there aren't usually any major issues upon returning to work after a few days off. Think too many hot days in a row really does sap the energy out of people and makes it hard to work. Busy at mom's work too with majority of summer things going to clearance prices this week. Think fall stuff will be set up soon.

Weather folk around here claim temps are gonna climb to the 90s, yuck! Not looking forward to that unless the humidity has totally left. Hopefully if hot day will cool off at night.

It was a good movie but, liked the first one better (got tired of the frog pretty fast). I would have changed the ending and had them with the parronts more too.
Well, my skinsis was working so I saw her at night. She usually doesn't pay attention to me unless I need her.
Mom got a second recall in a month on her car today. Then, we heard the loggers behind out property ... this isn't good.I'm loving this summer weather and patio time! I wish it would last for ever. I'm getting very eggcited for Wednesday, hope I get some new toys!

Oh thank you for letting me know you are all right!We just saw on tv about a bad train crash in Wisconsin on the news and was praying it wasn't near you!It said it was in Washington County or something like that!
We didn't get outside last night but we did tonight but the sun didn't stay long before it started getting cold again,its supposed to get warm here by mid week in the 90's but for us it will be closer to the high 70's or 80's!And the humidity is coming back also!I sure hope that its not too hot for you and your sweet Mom tomorrow on her day off.

I haven't heard from you in a while and I'm just making sure that you and your sweet Mom and daddy are all right!
It was another busy day for Mom even though she was home with us all day,while my dad was outside scraping paint on the trim of the house so he could paint it with fresh purple paint that my Mom bought a month or two ago! Mom was going through more stuff to take to the donation places and to the dump and recycling places.It was a cloudy,on the cool side day but yet humid if you were out side working!It was 72 degrees and the sun never came out until 4:30 this afternoon.Mom decided that as she was waiting for dinner to heat up she would take us all out on the deck to get some sunshine as we haven't been outside for several days.It was good to be able to watch all the wild birds come and go all around us!
Mom will be home for one more day before she goes to Zumba on Wednesday morning and then her errand runs with Nana and skin sis so I'm taking advantage of every moment that I can!At least my dad will be here all week so we won't be totally alone while Mom is gone all day!

Hello everybirdie, Zeena here to start this week with one of the worlds most well known Parrots. Today we stop to visit the Senegal Parrots and their mutations. I wish to thank you all for your greyt support and daily votes in my quest to earn the Title of Bird of the Month for August.
Over the last 30 years as many as 3 million wild Senegal parrots have been removed from the wild – 811,408 CITES Export permits have been issued since 1975. Unregulated trade in African parrots peaked in the 1980s and ’90s, and still exists today. This lucrative black market industry is fueled by profiteering middlemen who exploit wild bird populations. In 2005, the Senegal parrot was the most traded bird on the CITES Appendix II, with an average of over 45,000 individuals being removed from the wild each year. Today, African parrots remain among the most traded species on earth.
The Poicephalus parrots, including Senegals, Red-bellied and Myers etc are among the hardiest parrots on earth being able to survive in the harsh, African subtropics. All of their ranges are under serious pressure from the booming charcoal industry, out-of-control commercial logging , burning by local people for pastures and agriculture, as well as climate change. Deforestation rates on the continent are now twice that of the rest of the world. Africa has lost one half of its old-growth forests and forest restoration has become absolutely essential to save endemic forest bird species.
Long-lived forest specialists like Senegal parrots and rose-ringed parakeets are particularly sensitive to forest degradation. The added pressure of the wild-caught bird trade is often catastrophic, resulting in local extinctions in many Africa countries. Meyer’s parrots have all but disappeared from South Africa, African grey parrots are no longer seen in Kenya or Tanzania, Ruppell’s parrot and the brown-headed parrot have disappeared from much of their ranges in Namibia and Mozambique respectively, and the Cape parrot is only found in small forest refuges in the high mountains. Anyone who has traveled by road in Africa will tell you that every time you are in or near a forest you will start seeing parrots in cages or with their feet tied up on the roadside. Africa is exporting its parrots, its wildlife, its birdlife, its natural heritage,at alarming rates.
The Senegal Parrot is now extinct in many of it's ranges. The only way to stop this trade in wild-caught Parrots is to refuse to purchase birds that are not born in captivity.
Many devoted Senegal breeders have been working with a few unique mutations that have appeared in nestboxes starting in the early 1990's. These rare and beautiful mutations are still expensive and normally available only to other breeders, they include the yellow, pied, opaline, dilute and cinnamon. Regardless of color Senegal Parrots will remain one of the most common family pet birds kept the world over.
with love and scritches Zeena 255116

Just a quick note today to let you know we're thinking of you. Mom cleaned the skunks, foxes, groundhogs, and coyotes today, all outdoors, and very muggy, so she was happy to get to the pool. We need her tonight, though, so we're making her hurry up with our blogs. Hope you are having a wonderful summer day with lots of love coming your way. Hugs, Willie

It looks like our heat and humidity will be cranking up for the next couple of days, no big deal, it is after all late July! Limon comes out of his cage first thing every morning and is out all day, he is so sweet when when makes a few whimpers and grooms himself, what a pleasure he is! This is busy Monday for us, but we don't have a lot on the 'to do' list! I hope the start of your week is going well, I wish for you a happy, peaceful, and productive week, & give my love to all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow...

I played with mom in the afternoon, and she let me run all over her. Well, she sure learned a lesson. Next time she has to put a towel of something on her shoulder, or she'll end up being used as a potty place. Hey when a kid has to go, they have to go.

  Hi, Hulk
One always wonders if there are any work disasters when one has been off for a week. Usually get back into the routine quickly as always lots to do.

It does help if humidity or high temps only last a few days before returning. Do eggspect it during summer, but having no relief is terrible.

Busy day for mom at work yesterday. Not sure why, but at least everyone scheduled showed up and still could've used another.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Hi Hulk
Been off bird channel for a few days because moms been having sever pain running down her left leg due to her back problems.moms wearing her back brace and its taking pressure off her leg so her leg doesn't hurt as much. mom looks like a dork with the back brace on.we thought this was interesting and want to share it with you.

Moths are among the most diverse and successful organisms on earth. In fact, scientists estimate there are more than 150,000 moth species worldwide! Move over butterflies, moths come in bright colors and dazzling patterns. Species can take a myriad of shapes and can be as small as a pinhead to as large as an adult’s hand.
here are five awesome (and often little-known) facts about these winged wonders.
1. Some moths don’t have mouths. For example, the beautiful Luna moth does not have a mouth — so cannot eat — and will live only for about one week, with the singular purpose of mating!

2. Moths are great impersonators. Many moths have evolved to imitate other animals as a way to deter would-be predators. The Polyphemus moth has bold eyespots to startle and confuse those looking for a moth snack. The hornet moth looks just like a hornet, but is completely harmless. The beautiful wood nymph, a moth that has evolved to look just like bird poop.

3. Moths love a good microbrew. Interested in trying your hand at mothing? Nothing attracts these guys like beer. A tip from our scientists: Mix a paste of beer, brown sugar, and banana. Paint it on some trees, kick back and relax, then check back in the evening with your flashlight to see the multitude of moths you’re sure to attract.
Attracting moths... with beer!
4. Moths can turn bears into tigers. We’re all familiar with wooly bear caterpillars — but did you know this bear can turn into a tiger? Yep, the wooly bear emerges from his cocoon in the spring as a lovely Isabella tiger moth. Fun fact: Once a cocoon is spun, the caterpillar turns into a mushy soup during metamorphosis before emerging as a moth.
Moth metamorphosis
5. The death’s-head hawk moth has a serious claim to fame. He got his start in Bram Stoker’s Dracula, then went on to leading roles in both The Silence of the Lambs and The Mothman Prophecies. This famous moth gets its name from the scull-shaped pattern on the thorax, and has the unusual ability to emit loud squeaks when irritated.

  Hi Hulk
Well, the little ones are 1 to 2 years old and fast moving. The older ones didn't make it this year. The only place I could have set up my travel cage was out of mom's sight! So, better I stayed home with skinsis. She had to work so I saw her after.
RIO 2 was good but we liked the first one better. But, we'll probably buy it.
We had another beautiful day here up north. My parronts went to watch another polo game and I took a nap. Sounds like mom and I will have lunch on the patio tomorrow. I'm getting used to this and liking it!
Hugs

  Heya, Hulk!
Ah, I see your Mom uses tough love on you! Won't step up, off goes the light. She has your number, I would say. I think Mom's are good at that--mine is pretty much the same if I am on my playgym and she is going to another room, she will tell me and come over for me to step up. If I don't, she says bye, and goes to the other room. Then I start crying and she comes back to get me.

Another wonderful day with Mom, though I am grumpy today cuz she did not get up until 8 AM! I was up and ready to go at 7 but that lazybones did not get out of bed until later. Now mind you, 8 AM is not super late, but she is normally up by 7 on Sunday. So I had to wait a whole hour for her! Sheesh. But we had a good day, and now she is getting things ready for her return to work tomorrow, and I am not happy about that at all. So I am velcroing myself to her shoulder. Get me to move? No way.

Hope you had a wonderful Sunday!

Your buddy,
Kaji

  Hi Hulk
Hi everyone, Zeena, here with your Sunday BOTM POST. I want to take a moment to thank you all for all your support and votes during this month's BOTM campaign. Today, we will visit with some unique and usual Budgie mutations. Known by many names, Parakeet, Budgie, and officially Budgerigars. these fun-loving, friendly members of the avian family are loved the world over.

Feather Dusters
Feather Dusters are a rare mutation produced solely at random, mostly among English Budgies. These birds are huge compared to other budgies and have abnormally growing, very long feathers. As the name implies they do look rather like the feather dusters used for dusting furniture. They must eat constantly to try and supply their bodies with the nutrients they need because of the heavy demand put on them by the constant feather growth. They generally don't live more than a few months, cannot fly, and are usually blind. They are also thought to be deaf and may even be afflicted with what is known in humans as Down's Syndrome.


Half Siders

Half-Siders a randomly occurring rare mutation in which the bird is split right down the middle with each half representing a different color or variety. One side may be blue and one half green, one half normal and the other half pied, etc. When one of these is at a show, you can tell exactly where it is in the room because of all of the people standing in front of the cage doing double takes. As they say, you have to see it to believe it. Quarter-Siders, in which only one quarter of the body is affected, also occur.

CRESTED

In this variety, the feathers on top of the budgie's head point awry, forming a crest.
There are three types of crested budgies: full-circular crest, half-circular crest and the tufted crest.
Crested Budgies are both a random occurring mutation, and one for which breeders can breed to produce them. They are relatively rare and sell for upwards of $100US each and more depending on crest.
Helicopter Budgies

These unusual Budgies are bred to produce long, silkie feathers at the shoulder and upper wing margins. The more complete the covering the higher the quality and price. They are especially popular in Japan and Asia where pairs can sell for up to $55,000US
