My mom's good friend had several cockatoos and when they laid an egg and I hatched, they gave me to my mom and dad. Even the vet said I was the ugliest bird she'd ever seen since my bird mom plucked me when I was 3 months old! But see, the Ugly Duckling story is really true!!! hehehe

  Hello Picabo~~
Hope you are having a wonderful day! Squeaky is one brave little conure! I can understand how that cat was just too tempting to ignore. I have bitten many a cats tail in my days!
Dad is working with McKenzie training her to lay down on command. She will lay down but jumps right back up! Guess he needs to work on the "stay" command! Ian taught her to shake paws so dad was pretty surprised when she did that.
I don't know if they sell your car here or not! We just looked up a picture to see what it looked like! Can't wait for the parronts to get it!
We have the HD TV too but I'm not sure if we had to do anything to watch HD stuff. We don't have cable. We have Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu Plus. No one really watches much TV around here and we can catch up with the shows everyone likes on Netflix.
The pigeons live up in the eaves over the building. They just sit on the edge when it's nice outside and peek into the window. The one has been doing it for a few months but he brought a friend along! It really is rather creepy!!!
Hope you guys have an excellent day!!

  Morning my handsome Picabo pal-Jenny & Christy
Good morning my dear birdie friends and humans, here it is Friday again already, I know Cookie will be doing his happy dance! TGIF everybody, but we must say Friday is not one of our favorite days for a number of reasons! It seems like all of a sudden we went from heat and humidity to a real chill in the air, our furnace actually kicked on a few times, but it felt good taking the chill off our home! It will reach into the mid-sixties today with a real chance of more rain, oh goody! Have a great day dear friends, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

Forever love from Jenny, LaLo, Christy, Ziggy, & our daddy Chuck

  Hello Picabo~
Hope you had a fun day! It was nice here!
That pigeon that likes to look in the window brought a friend along today. It is rather creepy!hehehehehe McKenzie sits on the edge of the sofa and watches them and they watch her. I watch them all and wonder why!!
Ian pulled a muscle in his back so mom had to take him to his doctor today. They told him to ice it for 2 days then use the heating pad. They want him to take 800 mg of Motrin every 8 hours for a week. It doesn't always hurt but they said taking Motrin only when it hurts won't help the muscle to heal. Mom never knew that but since ibuprofin is a muscle relaxer I guess it makes sense. Good thing he is on vacation this week because he isn't suppose to lift anything for a week.
So is the new car home yet??? I hope so. Bet your parronts can not wait to have it! They will have to take a little road trip to see how it drives!! I hope your mom can post a picture of it cause we would love to see it!
I hope you have a wonderful evening!

Happy Monday :) Even though it won't be very happy for me . . . back to school for the folks :( At least I have new toys to play with while they're gone - and maybe a nice nap. I had a really fun day yesterday - presents, popcorn and a movie in the afternoon, corn on the cob with my supper, and then a strawberry ! Best of all though, was everyone staying home and playing with me ! Mom did run to Wallyworld for batteries since the tv remote died, but that was it -

Now it's cold ! It was our first extra blanket night this fall - down into the high 30's - and only reaching 70 any day this week. Some areas not too far north of us had frost advisories ! No wonder mom is waking up with a scratchy throat !

Camp is closed till May now . . . mom called the plumber to bleed the pipes and the phone and electric companies to put utilities on suspension. sigh . . . Have a great day Picabo ! love Cookie

  Heya, Picabo!
Our farmers market is open from the first Saturday in May to the Saturday after Thanksgiving. There is a winter market as well, but Mom has not been there since they moved to to behind our Mitchell Park Domes--it used to be very close at Wisconsin State Fair Park. She may check it out this winter--but she sure hates to get up and get there between 8-11 AM. Mom loves the type of markets that you have, as the items are fresh, and local. Mom would love that!!

I think Lizzie and Scion WERE bowling--she mentioned something about a league semi final that they were in. Heard that there were a number of our buddies on their team, too. No wonder we had the same here!

Gotta say that it was a very overcast day here, and then the rain came--boy, did it ever! Mom was going to Grandpa's, and she just was able to run out the garbage and hop back in the car before a big old bolt of lightening streaked across the sky, and the thunderboomer rolled, and the rain came down in sheets! She said it was so hard to see where you were going, and the street sewers could not handle the water that came down, and big puddles were forming. She made it to Grandpa's okay. I like watching the rain come down, so I did that. But I sure was happy to have her back home with me!

Kim's house got broken into again. Her hubby left for about 90 minutes yesterday, and sure enough, when he came back the door was open. The TV was gone, and that is really all that they took. Guess they could not figure out how to get the monitor unattached. Kim has her tablet with her, so that is good. Her hubby's buddy has his to load some pictures and stuff on it. They need to get out of there!!!

Football and more football here! Packers won. Seahawks won. Washington won. Bears are losing.

Wing hugs coming atcha!

  Hi ya Picabo~
Hope you had a fun day! How very cool that you guys are getting a new car! Awesome! We are so excited for you. We looked it up and it is such a cute car. Looks like it will get great gas mileage too. Sure hope your parronts enjoy driving it! Is gas expensive down there? We are at $2.79 per gallon.
Mom is off for 4 nights!! She will get some sleep. Don't know what else we will be doing. Just relaxing I imagine. We still have lots of things to get done around the house. I think all the time should be spent playing with me!! That is very important you know!!
I hope your evening is just wonderful.

  Hi Picabo
Mom loves the four seasons and would miss them. That is something you cant have a car there with US plates legally! Hope that car keeps on running on the duct tape and tequila LOL.
Today was a picture perfect day! I got a sunbath again today and they sure are helping my feathers look nice too.
This morning when mom held me my toes were cold so mom turned my heater on for tonight and know I will feel lots warmer and sleep better with that on!
Mom and dad went to watch the one grand play two softball games and they took the other grand with them. These two are the same age so they enjoy being together when they can. That left me all alone at home but psstt don’t let on but I had a great nap while the parronts were gone LOL. Mom is running behind since dinner was late and so that threw everything else here as well.

It got really cold here ! ALL the windows are closed and it's only 49 degrees out ! High of 70 today . . . but that's OK, cause we're celebrating ME ! Yeppers, it's my hatchday so come on over ! Mom got corn on the cob and strawberries ! Plus the sugar snap peas were looking really good yesterday when she went to the market :) And I think I may finally get to see what was in that bag the folks brought home from BirdJungle last weekend when they went to get the new bulb for my lamp ! My Laura even called last night saying she was going to stop over - is life great, or what ?

Mom's been in school almost a month now. She says it seems to be a good group except for a couple of younguns who are vying for the title of "class clown . . .

Hurry ! I'll be waiting ! Love you bunches ! Cookie

  Heya, Picabo!!!
Mmmm! We love jelly roll! Thank you for bringing it! Know Lizzie loves these as well!

Well, I did not get to the farmer's market today--it never got past 65, and there was a light breeze and humidity, too. Mom said that it was not warm enough. I was not happy about it, either. She was not gone too long, though, and brought back some lovely yellow and red tomatoes for me. She said it was packed there, too, as they were having their Oktoberfest celebration--and that brings out a pile of folks who come for the beer and food, and never come otherwise. Mom was glad to get out of there, too, as people were driving crazy!!!

Other than that, it was a nice day. A bit chilly out there now cuz it is damp. And tomorrow they promise us rain and more rain. We did watch the Badgers win over Michigan State. That was fun. Brewers lost, though. Tomorrow is the Packers game.

Kim is in the hospital. She said that they were debating about sending her home, but they kept her. Thank God, too. She spiked a high fever once she was in her room, and they were trying to get it down, including putting ice around her. That helped a lot. She said it was pretty bad for a couple hours, and she finally was able to get a little sleep around 4 AM. Mom will stop to see her on Monday, depending on what they have planned for her. Guess the wound care clinic folks will come to see her then too.

Wing hugs coming atcha!

  Hi Picabo and Squeaky
We have missed you too! The leaves havent changed here yet but imagine it wont be much longer and they will. The wall paintings sound nice. Mom would love to do something like that but her idea of drawing is stick people so guess its best she doesnt try to tackle that LOL.
Mom knows this area well since its close to where her mom grew up.Mom grew up about 20 minutes from this area though. Moms cousin daughter grew up out of state but they would come back to visit her grandparents (moms aunt) when she was young. She has lived here a while but didnt know where moms grandparents lived or moms aunts. Most of the land was there but the buildings gone and a few still has another generation living in them.
Here we are heading into another weekend and its rumored BC doesn’t work on weekends so guess we will be around yet on Monday!
Today was a cloudy drab day other then the two or so hours this afternoon when the sun shined nice. It was cold so I never did gat my sunbath today. We hope there are a few more nice days left for that yet!
Mom worked on her computer organizing pictures and she was right in my eagle eyes view so if I wanted to sit with her I could or just know she was right there…sure worked for me! Mom will be adding to the grands albums once the weather cools down again. She does that every year when its not nice out any more.

  Hello Picabo~
Hope you guys are having a great day! You can see I haven't been to "on the ball" about getting notes out either! Some days there just isn't enough time. Especially if mom want to get some sleep before work. She had 3 hours yesterday and 3 hours the day before so you can see why she needs to grab some sleep whenever she can. She will be off for 4 days after tonight so that will help her catch up! She can sometimes get a nap if McKenzie cooperates. Today Ian and Jennifer are both home so one of them will take over puppy duty so mom can sleep!
Those are some lucky cats! It's so sad when people dump them but unfortunately it happens all too often. That is how we got Merlin.
We are very happy to hear that Ron and Candy are going to coming down. I'm sure it will do him a world of good also!! We know all those tests and treatments are necessary but it can become your whole world and that is not good. I imagine that can become so stressful and stress is the worst thing for anyone, especially people trying to heal!!
Hope your mom and dad are doing great. Rather boring day here but that's just fine by me!!

I hope you are having a wonderful day!! Sorry I have not been getting notes out but the router died and trying to stay online was not working out! We got the new one yesterday and Ian installed it. So far so good!! Ian says it's better than the old one and will last a long time!
The UPS guy never even came to the door. He left the router at the office. Luckily Ian gets notifications about his packages and he knew it was there. I guess the UPS guy was running late and couldn't get to all the apartments. There are a lot of them here and I can see it would take a long time. First time that has ever happened. Ian said there was a bit stack so I bet the office staff was not happy about that. They log everything and lock it in a storage room. You have to sign for the package before you can take it. They know Ian and Jennifer because the two of them are always getting stuff!
McKenzie got a new tennis ball this morning and is playing catch with this one instead of chewing it to bits! Don't know how long that is going to last but she seems happy to play catch. Mom was not happy to have to sweep up all those pieces of hard rubber from the inside of the tennis ball she chewed up!
I hope the day is just perfect!

well its very important to keep those points. bc deleted about 1,0000 points from Paddy & Piddys page. not sure why since they always blog. could be that cockatoo giving i5 the finger we sent to them made them angry. We have been having internet problems also and thought t first it was bird channel but then it turned out to be comcast. they are having problems with the system i guess.

Yep I'm still lurking around the BC. Want to see what happens but from what I heard the guy who is in charge of taking down the site had pneumonia so I guess we'll be around a bit longer. I've been doing notes on YP also.
It's nice that you guys took in CT. Domesticated animals should not be left out to fend for themselves. I know cats are excellent hunters but they are still better off with a family. There is a stray here who hangs out next to the wetland. A lady who lives across from us is feeding her and says she is pregnant. Mom and McKenzie saw her last night. She is orange and white. She ran off when she saw Mckenzie. The lady has been sitting out with food and waiting for her so maybe she'll be able to catch her and get her to a rescue.
Very happy to hear that your mom and dad had a fun anniversary. It is very cool that they are going to do something everyday.
Hope everyone is well and happy!

searching to see who is still left. glad to find you . well we are still here and waiting for the execution. we like you re not giving up the ship and will stay til the end whenever that may be. we will not say goodbye but continue on you pet nd try and make the best of it. one thing about bird channel we will miss is being able to read all the blogs of everybirdy on their pages if we hadn't been able to blog that day. it kept us connected to our friends and kept us informed about what was happening in their daily lives. i guess that will be gone. not really interested in blogging on you pet right now until bird channel is finally gone and who knows when that will be. stay strong and holding our wings together with each other we stay united.

I hope you are having a wonderful day. Very pretty here and not too warm.
Washer broke yesterday so we are waiting for someone to come fix it. It may be Monday before anyone comes over. Luckily most of the laundry is done.
My play cage was all cleaned up when I got up this morning! I did sort of toss my bowl of oatmeal around but since I had eaten most of it the mess wasn't that bad! Now I am working on some toys in order to redecorate the bottom of my cage. Mom said she had to pull it out and sweep behind it! She said I had been busy!! Well of course I have been busy! I'm the bird and it's my job!
Mom bought McKenzie a stuffed alligator yesterday and she has already ripped it open! Mom is praying there comes a time when McKenzie does not chew so much! Birdsonally I don't think there is anything wrong with chewing!!
I hope your day is fabulous! Can't believe we only have one more day and then no BC. Doesn't seem real yet!

In the great Milonga room There was one red balloon
And a picture of-
the big bird channel family
jumping over the moon
And there were four little birds sitting on chairs
remembering all the fun bird affairs
And a quiet old bird who was whispering “hush” Goodnight room
Goodnight moon
Goodnight birds jumping over the moon Goodnight light
And the red balloon
Goodnight fun
Goodnight sun
Goodnight fun time
goodnight great friends
And goodnight to the old bird whispering “hush” Goodnight stars
Goodnight air
Good night noises everywhere

I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's sunny and pretty here and only going to hit 76. I can live with that!
Mom got up early to take Ian to work and then took McKenzie on a walk. She made us some oatmeal with pecans and applesauce when she got back. I ate that all up! Dad is getting ready to head off to Montana. I think he's going to New York after that.
Mom goes back to work tonight so she getting her thing ready for the workweek. We are nearly done with the laundry. We need to get George and Gracie cleaned out since we didn't get it done yesterday. That is about it!
We copied all our stuff off BC just in case they decide to shut down earlier. It took a while to move all of the BOTD Archive stuff!! It was nearly 5 years of BOTD's!! Don't know if any bird will ever need the info but we saved it anyway!
Enjoy your day and I hope it's perfect!

I hope you are having a fun day! I see they say that it is exciting news! Exciting to who? Not exciting to us since they are destroying something we have worked to build up over all these years. We do have the memories and we will still have each other.
The Petcha is going to have a page for birds and you will be able to leave messages according to the email I got. I only got the email from the guy I emailed. The general announcement came in the forum of the newsletter. If we can get the Milonga and other activities going on Facebook it will be okay. I rather like the YouPet and mom put McKenzie and Merlin up with me. I already have a dog and cat as friends! I think the cat is really into it cause she has the most friends on the site. When I signed up yesterday all 12 of the newest members were from BC!hahahaha When you add a picture it takes a while for it to show up so don't worry about that.
Mom and dad went out to lunch for dads birthday. It's on Saturday but he won't be here. Now they are home and mom is off tonight so I hope we get to do something fun. She still has to pick up Ian and Jennifer and then go by the library. She'll go look at books while Ian and Jennifer sit on the bench outside to catch Pokemon. Yep! They are playing that game on their phone. It is rather like a scavenger hunt! They seem to be enjoying it.
She will have to take dad to get his truck later since he is getting a new seat put in tomorrow. Guess the old one was making his back hurt!!
I hope you enjoy the day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Picabo & Flock,

How are you all doing? It's Oz & Flock! Hope all is well in your Happy Home. Just remember Picabo that you can come and stay at my home anytime you want Too. Not just in the Summer to swim in my Pool but anytime through the year Okay, Buddy? We all just love you, Picabo!

Yes, shutting down Bird Channel really has my Mom and us very upset. We have all made such great Friends on here, some we have met but most we haven't and yet we all have such a connection. It's so nice to talk to people with Birds and discuss everything about them & if we have questions, we just ask! We have shared so many good, happy but also sad things that have happened to us, our Birds, Family and even our Friends! I do hope that this "Petcha" will be just as good a site and that we will be able to stay in touch the way we have all these years! It's been nice to have Friends that know what we're going through having Birds/Parrots as my Family & Friends don't understand because they don't have them and just don't get it & really never will the
way we all do!

Take care all and just know that Mom and all of us Love you all and yes she also has tears in her eyes over this whole situation. Hope it can stay as close as it is here on Bird Channel. Mom is not the sharpest pencil in the box and just hopes she can understand how to make it work! Her words not ours LOL!

Love & Hugs,
Debbie, Oz, Cheyenne, Parker, Apache & Silver

  Hey Picabo,
There are too many words to say but the bottom line is that we love you and will always be good friends, forever, wherever, whatever we will keep in touch somehow somewhere.

The love we all have will never end even if the BC does.

  Hi Picabo and flock
Officer Sequoia drives up in his police car.
"Climb in!" He waits until Picabo and his flock climb in the car and then drives off with the lights flashing and the siren on. "If this is out last drive before BC shuts down, we might as well go fast!" All the other cars move out of the way when they see the flashing lights and hear the siren.

They have fireworks at the park in Boonsboro, the town that we live near. They never have them on the fourth though, because other places like Washington DC and Antietam National Battlefield have bigger celebrations. Dad didn't go this year because he was too tired.

We were very very sad when we heard Bird Channel is closing down. We have only been here for around six months but this is the best web site my dad has ever logged on to. I know there is a BC Facebook page but it just won't be the same. Plus, Dad isn't on Facebook.

We are glad we got the chance to get on BC even if it was only for six months. We have had so much fun here!

Hope you had a good day.

Here's a vote.

Your friends,
Officer Sequoia, Supersonic, Sky Guy, Buttons, Popcorn, Creature, Zipper, Brownie, Tomato Candy, Mr. Flathead, Sawdust, Sqeakers, Apple Cider, Secret, Echo, Rainbow Rosie, Whitey, The Buffys, Bock Bockie, Zebra, and last but not least, Lastaloo.

  Hello Picabo~
I hope the day is going great! Sorry for the general type note today but mom has to go pick dad up in an hour so our time is limited.
We posted the reply from Petcha on the calendar page. They say there is going to be a bird part to it. Crystal said they were going to move the stuff from BC over there. Move what I wonder? We have everyones email I think and we think everyone has ours. We are in the BC directory also. We will stay in touch! You have all become part of our lives and we could not imagine a world without you!!!
It is day 2 of McKenzie's recovery and if she did not have that scar running down her tummy you would never know she had surgery! She has been running up and down the hall, jumping on the bed and chasing Merlin! That was just when mom let her out of the crate this morning so they could take their walk!!!! Mom is going crazy trying to keep her quiet. She is not wearing the cone and has not bothered with her stitches. Mom gave her another pain pill so hopefully she will get sleepy and go to sleep. Mom knew this was going to happen even though so many people said that being spayed would calm her down. McKenzie does not have the laid back dog personality!
Enjoy the day and the time we have left here! I know we will figure out something.
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi, Picabo
Very sad that BC is closing next week. Will miss it so much. Hopefully can keep in touch with group emails or on the (dreaded to us) facebook. We have an account but will need to reset the password.

That is funny you are still scared of the chair but a towel covered couch is okay. Wouldn't want the cats to scratch it or any critter to have accidents on it.

Always love to see any birds at the zoo. Must be awesome to see the 'tiels!

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

Now and forever you are a part of me
And the memory cuts like a knife
Didn't we find the ecstacy? Didn't we share the daylight?
When you walked into my life

Now and forever, I'll remember
All the promises still unbroken
And think about all the words between us
That never needed to be spoken

We had a moment, just one moment
That will last beyond a dream, beyond a lifetime
We are the lucky ones
Some people never get to do all we got to do
Now and forever, I will always think of you

Didn't we come together? Didn't we live together?
Didn't we cry together? Didn't we play together?
Didn't we love together? And together we lit up the world

I miss the tears, I miss the laughter
I miss the day we met and all that followed after
Sometimes I wish I could always be with you
The way we used to do

Oh now and forever, I will always think of you
Now and forever, I will always be with you

Carole King says it better than I ever could ! Let's enjoy our last few days here before moving on to emails, FB, or some other format. is very different but perhaps there is a way to make it work for us - at least for those reluctant to use FB . . . sure beats the alternative !

We had some rain here last night and this morning the air isn't as thick :) If it holds, mom and dad are heading to West Point for an outdoor Army Band concert - with a picnic supper . . . that of course means lock down for me :(

Love you NOW AND FOREVER ! a heartbroken Cookie

  Hi Picabo & Flock
we probably joined bird channel around 2007 but weren't very active on it and bird channel took away all our points because of it. then we got back on and would just vote for birds but not say anything. eventually Hulk stopped by and started talking and we talked back and it hasn't been the same since. bird channel came to usat a time when we really needed it. who would have thought we would have made such wonderful connections and become good friends with people we had never even met. many we used to talk to have now left bird channel and we always wonder what happened to them and how they are. some have passed on and we miss the conversations and fun times with them. we have a wonderful warm loving family and it is so very sad to see it end. at least a few years ago when bird channel announced we were going to be dust we had enough sense to start collecting email addresses names and phone numbers. we have dreaded that this day would finally come but knew i5 publishing had no interest in keeping us together. we knew we would stay to the very end and knew it would be hard to say goodbye to all our fun times. its very hard to talk right now as tears are making it had to type.

love you forever and ever Cori,Boo Boo and the very bad budgies Paddy & Piddy

  Hello Picabo~
I hope your day is going great!! We are being quiet around here so that McKenzie can sleep and recover from her surgery. She did really well and hasn't had to have a cone on yet. She seems to be more bothered by her leg where they put the IV in. She didn't eat much last night but this morning she had her regular breakfast. I shared my pancakes with her too. She has to go back in a couple of weeks to get the stitches out.
Merlin was very upset when mom came home yesterday morning without McKenzie! Who would have thought that he would miss her? He fussed the entire day until mom brought her back. He is such a contrary cat!
Today is Jennifer's birthday! Mom and Ian got her gift cards since she likes those the best! When mom dropped her off at work all the kids at the daycare were lined up by the fence and sang Happy Birthday to her! It was so cute! Think she was a bit embarrassed by the attention!
We saw the pictures of your house on Facebook! OMG! It is just spectacular! We had no idea it was so big! Ian walked by and thought it was some kind of resort!! It really is beautiful and that sofa was worth waiting for!! I can just see you all stretched out and relaxing!!
Enjoy your day and I do hope it's just spectacular!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

Happy Friday ! Boy did I miss all my friends while mom and dad were gone ! But I had fun with my Laura - she called mom early yesterday to tell her that I was an imp ! Can you imagine that ? She had to leave for school and I would NOT go in my cage, so she put a blueberry in there - I scrambled over and sat on the cage door, and looked at her as if to say "HA ! Now I've got a blueberry and you still can't get me in !" Eventually, though, I HAD to have a taste and "whoosh" went the door and out went my Laura :(

Turns out the summer camp needs a new water heater . . . the handy man had been over to power wash the dock and saw the leak - so that's all taken care of. While there dad also got the ladder in the water and replaced a couple loose boards . . . now everything is ready for me to go ! Don't know when yet - a couple more weeks at least.

The last few days (up there and here) have been oppressive ! It's the kind of hot that's like breathing hot soup - YUCK ! Hope everything is well with you !

love Cookie
