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

  Hi Picabo
Hello fellow Amazon Adventurers, Amando here with a rather "fishy" situation. After scaring the Hippos away with a Cappy scream and landing safely down River, we soon made the discovery that that the Amazon is home to some pretty "fishy" characters. Red-bellied Piranhas.
Cappy shudders when he sees the bucket and the churning water ..." I think it best to stay away from that water ... Thank goodness those things can't come on shore ... just look at how fast they ate through the bucket ... Faster than I could have ... whew."
The others back away from the water as Jenny-Lynn eyes the chewed bucket, then leans over to look at the fish. "could I get one of those Piranhas with tartar sauce and lettuce, LOL! "
Just as the birds had settled for lunch Capt. Finny flew in at a swift speed, between breathes he related the outcome of the Green Angel's search of the area. "Kacey and Kallie sent Chuey to tell Chipper and I to get up the river fast! Pearl and Silver have been on the look-out with them to see what kind of suspicious activity is going on. We're getting pretty near where we could be spotting Armando's Momma and flock anytime now. So we wanted to be really careful. You're not going to believe this, but we saw more poachers! And this time they were really operating undercover, spreading nets. I think they may be after Armando's flock! You've got to get up here fast with JL and the gang, but be sure you keep little Armando out of sight. We've come so far and we're so close now, but this is going to be dangerous."
Amando looks at Jenny-Lynn and Sky, then at all his friends. He goes to Sugar and leans over to whisper into Armando's ear, " you're almost home little buddy. We're not going to stop now. Soon you will be back with your Momma" he kisses him softly on the head and sadly smiles at Sugar.
Turning to the others he says, " Finny and the Green Angels have found poachers ahead. Armando's flock is in danger. We are BC Commando Birds and we will not give-up, back-down or retreat. Who is with me?"
With one voice the cheer fills the Rainforest opening where the group stopped for lunch. "We will not be defeated. Together we shall win the war over poaching!" Amando's heart filled with hope and courage as he returned to Jenny-Lynn and Sky. Sitting on an old log, the three discuss with Finny the area ahead, the location of the poachers and make their plan of attack. Little Armando must be returned to his flock. Jenny looks at the drawing of the area and frowns. The nesting site for Armand's flock is close by. "I have no doubt that they are indeed after Armando's flock. " Jenny growls angrily, and glares off into the jungle growth.
"OK Birdie Commando's let's move out. It's war. This time it is no-holds-barred" Amando yells.
Sugar and Dory get Armando ready for the cross jungle trek. With Guards, Taz, Spot, Gus, Cori, Sweetpepper, Kiddo and Pookie in closed formation around Armando they begin to move out.

  Hi Picabo and flock
Hello everybirdie. Amando here with today's Adventure update. After a frightful emergency with my fister Sweetie and her Pet Store toy, we are back on our trip to return Armando to his Momma and flock. With the Hippos awake things got pretty nasty for poor Cappy and his boat load of Amazon Adventurers. Hippos are not native to South America but were relocated here by someone then left to fend on their own when their owner was killed by authorities. The warmth, abundant water and plant life are perfect habitat for the displaced African natives. A large male awoke by the passing boat lets out a loud roar of annoyance that rouses the others from their afternoon rest. He runs forward, his strong legs moving easily across the river bottom. The others in his pod follow, heading towards the longboat.
Cappy sees the angry hippo coming and let's out a huge Cockatoo SCREAM, crest up, feathers fluffed. The male Hippo comes to a screeching stop and stares in wonder at the large white bird standing on the helm of the longboat. The others stop behind him, not certain what to do. The leader roars again and steps forward. Cappy screams again, this time he is joined by the other BC friends. The sound is deafening as it echos across the water. The Hippos having never seen or heard a Cockatoo before stare for a moment longer then turn on their heels and head back towards the distant shoreline. Cappy screams once more for a final warning, before smiling happily at his friends in the boat. "You just don't mess with a TOO!" he says, grabbing his oar. "OK, let's paddle out of here."
The other boats pass by undisturbed as the hippos keep a nervous watch from the banks. The group sails past Manaus, before BB calls to them to head for shore for lunch. Dixie and Little Angel were so comforted to be in the boat with Cappy as their guard,he sure did scare those hippos fast! They wouldn't want to mess around with that strong big beak.
BB opens her travel bag & gets out the portable kitchen. Out of the storage bins she gets corn on the cob, veggie Kabobs,Soy burgers and Spam hot dogs. Little Bits Best root beer is in the coolers along with Cream & Ginger Ale sodas.
"I am going to call in the supply shuttle for more food. Any birdie have a request for food??" she asks looking at Sky, " yes Pickles, I won't forget. Sky could you and Jesse go bring some water from the river please?"
Sky grabs two buckets as he and Jesse wander back down to the River where the others are playing a game of beach volleyball. Bending over, sky dips the bucket into the river and suddenly the water begins to turn and bubble. Startled Sky yanks the bucket out. "WHAT ???" he yells looking at it. The whole bottom was gone, eaten away. "Stay out of the water, Piranhas!"
Everybirdie stops dead and stares at the bucket, and the River.
"So many dangers to be wary of" Kaji sighs

  Hi Picabo and flock
Hello Adventurers. As we draw close to Manuas, Brazil, we must be watchful for both human threats and the ever present threat from wildlife both on land and aquatic. Although the Hippo is an African animal, there are now over 50 individuals and counting living happily along the Amazon and other South American Rivers. In the late 1980s, Pablo Escobar kept four hippos in a private menagerie at his residence in Hacienda Nápoles, 100 km east of Medellín, Colombia, after buying them in New Orleans. They were deemed too difficult to seize and move after Escobar's fall, and hence left on the untended estate. By 2007, the animals had multiplied to 16 and had taken to roaming the area for food in the nearby Magdalena River. In 2009, two adults and one calf escaped the herd and, after attacking humans and killing cattle, one of the adults (called "Pepe") was killed by hunters under authorization of the local authorities. As of early 2014, 50 hippos have been reported to exist on the Amazon and it's tributaries.
With Mick Dundee departure after enjoying BB's lunch, the birds begin to wonder how they would get past the Hippos ahead in the River. Amando, Jenny-Lynn and Sky sit close, deep in discussion trying to figure out the safest way past the upcoming danger.
"I think we simply paddle by, staying as far away from them as we can. If we take one boat past at a time it shouldn't disturb them overly" Jenny-Lynn adds, worry on her face
"But if they do attack the boat and it is alone we might not be able to get there in time to help them." Sky adds
"I think we stay close together." Amando replies after some thought, " we paddle as little as we have to, let the river move us by"
"It might be best if we separate and place guards in each boat while passing the hippo pod." Jenny-Lynn directs
Sky and Amando agree, and set about moving guard birds into each boat. The nervous Adventures load their boats, and pushing off from shore, slowly paddle towards possible danger lurking the the River ahead. Finny and Chipper had reported back that the hippos were resting near the west bank of the river in shallow water. The birds move their boats towards the eastern shore, paddling carefully, ever watchful for danger. Rounding a sharp curve in the River near Manuas, JL in the lead boat with Sugar, Cookie, Raffi, Peepers, Laka, Strawberry and RT spots the first group of hippos. Resting submerged below the murky Amazon waters, just their heads exposed. Pointing she let's out a shrill whistle to inform the others that danger was ahead of them. JL directs her companions to stop paddling, and allows the boat to move slowly along pulled by the current of the water. Sky and Kaji's boats pass by the hippos without incident. Next boat to pass is LA and Dixie's group, guarded by Cappy. As Cappy instructs his friends to stop paddling, one huge male Hippo opens his mouth and lets out an angry roar. His sudden call rouses the others in the pod.

  Hi Picabo and flock
Hello fellow Amazon Adventurers. I was sure glad to see that Ms BB had welcomed her pal to join us for a part of our trip up the River. She musta known we were going to run into some nasty company along the way. Nothing worse then Crocs or gators for rocking the boat so to speak. Thankfully we had warning from Finny and the Green Angels. With BB's shuttle always on the ready she was able to have her friend Mick from Australia join us . He has a nickname of Crocodile Dundee. Mick stepped up on the bow of the long boat so the crocs could see him better. When they did they all headed for the bottom of the river & stayed there. They didn't want to be made into boots,belts,hats or luggage!!! I sorta feel sorry for them after Cappy and Little Angel got done with them.
"OK, enough with the green gator guys, Ok Crocs. Let me at' em. I'll show them a thing or five. I'll bite their noses, sparkle their tails and then......"Li
"il Angel yells at the crocs as they swim around the boats. "Oh you don't wanta wake the baby.
Too late....LOOK OUT CROC HERE I COMEEEEEEEEEEE." Little Angel grabs an oar and whacks the croc on the nose hard making tears come to his eyes.
Little Angel" Sky yells, "Stop hurting the Crocs, you're making them cry. OH no not that." He watches as she grabs one by the tail and bites down as hard as she can, "and trust me that's hard."
"Little Angel, I thought I told you be good?" Amando looks at her and can't help but grin as he watches the neon sparkled crocs swimming away in shame, that a little girl bird beat them up.
Everybirdie laughs as the crocs disappear. Then little Angel turns to see Mick standing on Ms BB's boat. She grins sheepishly and giggles. "Way ta go mate" Mick calls to her making LA happy.
"Whew! That was a close one! Thankfully, LA, Cappy and Ms. BB took care of those nasty crocs! Good grief! What will we encounter next?? Oh, oh....my Green Angels just informed me that there are some hippos up the river. Just what we need! Do be careful. Hippos are even more dangerous than crocs. We have to find baby Armando's Momma and get him home before anything else happens. I'm off to check on the hippo situation and really search for Armando's Momma. " Finny waves his good-bye as he heads off up-river to re-join the Green Angels as they gather information about the hippos.
Heading into shore, tie off their boats and relax. Its lunch time so Ms BB sets up her portable kitchen." How about deep fried gator bites, corn dogs and deep fried pickles?
I have been told by Mr Mick Dundee the gator bites taste like chicken. " Picabo makes a face at the thought of Gator bites. Boo Boo yells, " Bring'em on!"
"Then we can sneak past those Hippos and continue our hunt for the baby"s Mom & Dad."
As BB and the girls cook lunch, the boys bring out some maps and check for possible nesting sites ahead. As they look over the map Willie points to a treed area, "LOOK! A nesting area of Amazon species"

  Hi Picabo
Those fish tacos sure were tasty! Wish we could catch some prawns or lobster, though, but they don't live under the ice here! I'm glad of the bonfire, it helped last night, and it's a good thing we did that on land!
Today mom was going to go out to the National Aviary with a friend, but it's snowing again. It's mostly a very damp, slushy kind of snow, but that could go either way. If it gets colder it will freeze and be dangerous. If it gets warmer, it will melt. Mom didn't want to chance the former, so she called her friend and canceled for today. They will have other times to go see the baby penguins. They hatched a while ago, and the parents raised them so far. They were taken from the parents and put on display of sorts over the weekend. (It's the time they would normally leave the nest, though.) They are in the viewing window of the infirmary, being hand raised for a couple of months, so they will be good education ambassadors.
In March, the aviary will add some immature birds of Paradise, and we'll get to see them grow into their adult feathers. That should be exciting.
Anyway mom is all ours for today, since she isn't going out anytime soon. I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of warm cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

Wow, we are catching some big fish! This is fun, but it is cold.
Lena made a good dinner last night for everyone, and both birthday girls were happy with their meal and gifts.
Today mom attended a docent meeting and learned a new fact about the museum: they house 22million collections! That's not 22million artifacts, but whole collections. Isn't that amazing? It's not the Smithsonian, but it's still a big place!
After the meeting, mom went to get her nails done, finally. While she was at the salon, it snowed like crazy! We were supposed to get scattered flurries today, but that's not what happened. Instead it was a steady shower of snow for a couple of hours. When she got back home, mom had to shovel the driveway before she could pull into the garage. It slants downhill, so when it snows, mom is always afraid she'll slide into the house or something. Anyway, we're finally online, but not for long. It's late, and mom wants to make sure we get our second meal in a timely way.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

  Hi Picabo
Good morning Amazon Adventurers time to rise and shine! Amando calls out happily as he wakes his sleeping friends. " It's once more time to load our long-boats and move further in-land on our search for baby Armando's Momma and flock." The sleepy eyed BC Adventurers yawn and climb off their sleeping perches, waking to the smells of Ms BB's fresh brewed coffee and the warmth of the Brazilian sun falling softly on their faces. Eating a quick breakfast the travelers ready their boats, pushing off from shore, determined to make Santarem by late afternoon.
Santarém (Portuguese pronunciation: [s?~ta'??j]) is a municipality in the state of Pará in Brazil. The Tapajós joins the Amazon River there, and it is a popular location for tourism. It is the second most important city in the state and the financial and economic center of the western part of the state. It was once home to the Tapajós Indians, a tribe of Native Americans after which the river was named, It is located some 800 km (500 mi) from both the largest cities in the Amazon, Manaus, and the state capital Belém. It has a population of 300,000.
Pushing out into the Amazon River, the group paddles through the early morning without incident. Suddenly Finny and the Green Angels arrive, landing on the helms of the boats. "Amando,
just wanted to warn you guys to be careful up ahead. There are some crocs sunning themselves up the river. You never know if they'll take off after a boat or not, so be on the lookout and be very careful with little Armando." With that they were off again, scouting ahead for danger and Armando's Momma.
"I THINK BABY ARMANDO RECOGNIZES THE SOUNDS HE IS HEARING. OH I DO HOPE WE FIND HIS MOMMA AND HE KNOWS HER VOICE." Kacey and Sweetpepper say as they cuddle the baby close, keeping him safe. Armando chirps happily, straining his neck to see everything as the boats slip effortlessly through the murky waters.
"We are all so excited to be on this journey to find baby Armando's parronts.And to destroy all the poachers along the way who have done all this damage to our native habitat!" Dixie tells L'il Angel, an angry look in his dark eyes.
The boats turn the bend in the river, and there, laying on both banks are dozens of crocs and gators, basking in the mid-day sun. As the boats move forward, the paddles ripping swiftly through the water, black eyes open and disappear beneath the water at the edge of the river. Suddenly Falco lets out a terrified scream, grabbing onto Jesse. Their boat vibrates as the croc comes up from underneath, hitting the boat from below. Hulk and Willie hold tightly to their oars as the croc swims around the sides of the boat, then disappears under the water. " HELP!" Boo Boo yells as the croc hits the boat on the side, tipping it over, and causing it to take on water.
BB and Sky turn their long-boat quickly, with Kaji and JL paddling as hard as they can, Cappy holds his oar up, hoping to get a swing at the angry reptile.

It was a frozen fillet! At least it seemed to be. I suspect it was a bass, though...Good thing Zippy likes to clean and cook them, otherwise I'd toss them back.
Yesterday's games were good, the first one was spectacular! Both teams played well, and the win in overtime by the Seahawks was really exciting. The second game went as mom predicted, a total rout by the Patriots over the Colts.
Chyna and her parronts got to their vacation home around 2:30pm yesterday. When Chyna texted me, she was already by the pool, enjoying some liquid refreshment. Her mom was still unpacking, though.
Today mom was at the center, and she got to work in the menagerie for a change. The menagerie is where most of the education animals live, and she could talk to all of them today. Irwin was out working, so she couldn't talk to him, but everyone else was home and social. Even Twitch the squirrel let mom hold him for a minute.
After her shift, she went to Better Feeds to buy bird food for our outdoor feeders, and picked up some peanuts for the center. Ray the crow will get his peanuts today.
It's still not bad temperature wise, around 38, which is pleasant for this time of year. Tonight, mom and her family will join Lena at her place for dinner. Lena is making the birthday dinner for her mom and sister. (Mom offered to take everyone out, but she wanted to cook.)
So, we will get mom's attention this afternoon, and maybe later this evening, depending on when she gets home.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

Hello everybirdie, I am sorry for missing Sunday but we were Squawked right off of BC from dawn to dusk. I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and are ready to continue our trek down the Amazon River to find baby Armando's parents.

Thanks for your daily support and tot hose who leave comments we are able to write into our daily posts.
"We're off in search of Armando's Momma" Amando calls out as the long-boats push off from shore. The eggcitement of the day and the upcoming adventure slips away as the boats cut smoothly through the water. Native birds fly over head shouting their greetings as the group of Adventures paddle down the river in search of Armando's flock.
Jenny, always on the vigil, oversees Sky & Amando's plan of returning baby Armando! She will not allow this venture to go South, "there will not be any days like that! This is not a vacation, THIS IS SERIOUS CRAP! " Jen is learning to understand the Napanee flock, and just like her, they are as serious as a heart attack, Jen loves the real things in life! This adventure will not fail!
The birds joke and laugh as they paddle enjoying the scenery slipping by on the shoreline. A Jaguar leans over to get a closer look at the passing Birds. BonBon and Parker fly over to speak to him. " Do you know of a flock of Amazons that have a baby that was stolen from them? We found him, but don't know where to find his Momma."
"He is likely from further inland. Poachers were raiding nests in there a few weeks ago, stealing countless babies from nests, cutting down their nesting trees if necessary. I have seen many dead babies lying discarded along the trails, tossed away like garbage, all in the name in profit" The angry Jaguar roars his displeasure. " Once the nest trees are destroyed there are no places for future nests or chicks to live."
Susan shivers as her boat passes by a submerged tree, where a large snake lies sunning herself along the edge of the water. The snake watches as the birds pass by, watchful least they bring danger to her homeland.
Finnegan and the Green Angels swoop in and land on the helm of the boat where Amando, JL, Cappy, Sky and Kaji navigate the River. "It looks like the coast is clear for now, but the Green Angels and I will be keeping a keen lookout for trouble. This route along the Amazon is really beautiful, at least the birds'eye view of it is." with that they fly off to scout of the river ahead.
Baby Armando wakes up chirping happily as he hears the calls of his native land. " I think he knows where he is now" Dory says to Chyna, Falco and Sugar, "Look" the baby flaps his tiny wings happily.

I have to say staying in the castle last night sure beat the ice cabin! It's cold in there!!! But here I am, bright and early to start fishing again today. Zippy sure made a good breakfast, didn't she?
We want to thank everyone responsible for the fun milonga last night, especially Kiddo, Sam, and Lizzie. It was a lot of fun!
Mom got a text from Aunt Jane this morning saying they are in Florida. They will be at their rental house soon, we think.
If you haven't welcomed Sherman and Peabody (274945), today would be a good day to tell them HELLO! They are Tooth's family, so you know they will be fun. They added something to the milonga last night, a very cute tablecloth by the time they were done chewing a design into it. We might even be able to make them BOTD if everyone visits them and votes today.
Mom was shopping for fresh foods for us today, so we are well stocked with a red pepper, a new yam, some zucchini, blueberries, as well as the apples, grapes and broccoli. I love when she cuts into the pepper and gives me the seeds on the core!
I hope you are having a wonderful Sunday, let's all root for our favorite teams today in anticipation of the Super Bowl! Hugs, Willie

Hello everybirdie. Amando here with today's Amazon Adventure Update. I want each of you to know how proud I am of you, and how hard you fought against the poachers who were stealing the wild Parrots. Many species of birds and Parrots are extinct or on the brink of extinction. The two of the leading causes being destruction of habitat and unchecked poaching. With the criminals behind bars we are off to the shuttle and the trip down the Amazon to find baby Armando's parents.
Finnegan swoops in, "Hey Amando and team.....that was GRRRRRRRRREAT! We did it! Everyone did a fantastic job nailing those poachers. Now my Green Angels and I have to get busy scouting out the route and helping to look for little Armando's mama and flock. You know there could be many more poachers on our route. There are lots of them out there. So we're still going to have to be VERY careful. My Green Angels have excellent eyesight are the best team you could wish for. We're off." with that the Green Angels head up into the blue skies towards Macapa', and the beginning of our trip.
Kiddo comes to Amando, JL and Sky, " I think those guys are so glad to be in custody. Obviously jail was preferable to the wrath of the beak!" The birds erupt into fits of laughter at that, as they recall the looks of relief when the authorities showed up.
The BC Commando Birdies head back to the shuttles waiting int he clearing. Everything is loaded and ready. Baby Armando is fast asleep in Dory's wings. Cori tip-talons over to see him, smiling at his quiet form, sound asleep oblivious to all that has taken place. Dory hands the tiny parrot to Cori who kisses his little pin-feathered head. He opens one eye long enough to see who has him before falling back to sleep. Everybirdie is glad to sit down in the shuttle, after the awesome fight they just completed. Eggcitedly they relay the events to Paoo who smiles." There are more, many more out there. As long as people buy them, Parrots will be stolen from their homes."
The Shuttles lift off effortlessly and in a flash are landing outside of the City of Macapa'. The birdies climb out cautiously, keeping their eyes open for danger. Finny and his Green Angels fly by relaying the all clear message. Sky and Amando head tot he river to find their guide Jose' who will escort the group down the Amazon in search of the flock that Armando belongs to. A dozen long-boats sit moored at the waters edge. Jose' looks up as he hears Amando heading towards him. "I have already heard word of the fight your group won against the poachers at Belem. Word travels fast through the Rain Forest." The tall Macaw grins widely and offers a wing in friendship.
"Let's get the gear loaded and get moving. We have a long trip ahead of us." Sky exclaims
"Es, and many dangers also" Jose' replies with a knowing look.
"OKAY, all is ready" Amando calls loudly, as the three birds return together to the shuttles. "We're off in search of Armando's Momma"

  Hi Picabo and flock
Hi Commando Birdies, Amando here to update you on progress in the Amazon Adventure. Having encountered poachers in our vicinity we took it upon ourselves to take matters under our own wing before heading deeper into the Amazon to return baby Armando to his Momma.
"Bombs away!" Amando screams as the birds take perfect aim and Poop all over the frightened poachers.
Cappy stares down that ring leader, his eyes pinned and crest straight up. I am coming for you and I require a blood draw. He laughs loudly making the man cringe under the weight of the net.
Dixie and Little Angel have joined in the battle and rip up as much flesh off these poachers as they can get,and as Little Angel clamps her beak down even harder on the one poachers nose, he writhes in agony on the jungle floor. Dixie makes a play for his ear and bites down with the sharp point that his Mom had dremmeled for him to bite into his food easily,making the poacher's cries of pain reverberate throughout the jungle!
Finnegan lands by Amando and Jenny-Lynn, "Wow! That was a great attack, Amando! Let's get the big guy and keep it up until they all have to CRAWL out of the jungle. Then they'll never come back...I hope."
" I think we better escort these criminals back to Belem and make sure they turn themselves over to the authorities." Sky exclaims, watching in delight as the seven men begin to whimper and cry as bird after bird poops on them then flies off to return again. JL stands so close to the netted Leader that he can feel her breath on his face. Mikey D caught up in the action yells to her, "GO FOR THE EYES... THEY CAN'T HIT ...WHAT THEY CAN'T SEE."
"OK, get to your knees slowly" Amando orders the seven criminals," get crawling" they move obediently, " NOW MOVE IT" The six poachers crawl towards their leader, they help remove the net from him, as they keep careful watch on the angry birds. Jenny Lynn bites the smallest guy hard when he attempts to stand up. " I said your knees" Amando yells loudly.
The men crawl through the jungle, moaning in pain from the multitude of cuts and bites they have earned. The birds continue to swoop and dive at them the whole trip. They crawl the many miles back to Belem. Once there Sky and Finny head off to locate wildlife enforcement officers. Getting their attention by screaming, they bring them to where the poachers are being detained by the BC Birdie Commandos at the edge of the city.
"PLEASE, PLEASE arrest us, PLEASE." The poachers plead, "we have broken the law and have been poaching wild Parrots for many years" tears falling from their eyes, "PLEASE save us from these BIRDS!"
The Officers grin as they look at the bloodied, poop covered men cowering under the watchful glare of the BC Birds.

Haha, I was going to say I'll be there with bells on, but that wouldn't be a good idea, would it? The fish will swim far away.
We may not all get to blog this morning, but we can come back later if we don't get done. Mom, as you know, is going to hear Phil Currie speak today at the museum. After that, she is picking up a friend for late lunch/early dinner, whichever. She also has to replace (already!) the picture frame she got for Falco's latest, because it fell off the wall last night and the frame broke. What a mess, but at least the glass part is intact. She doesn't think the rest of it can be saved, though. She might try...
So, it's going to be a longish day for mom out of the house, and it's already near the time she has to leave for the museum. At any rate, we hope you are having a great day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

  Hi Picabo
sorry there is back problems at your house also. they are the worst until something see goes wrong. mom keeps forgetting she is now a old lady and not a kid and never thinks twice before she does something. then afterwards she has lots of time to realize how dumb she was in attempting it.

mom made the big mistake of vacuuming the bedroom and it looks 100 percent better but mom feels a lot worse because of it. then our doggie went to the vet to have her nails trimmed and the vet found a tumor on her little doggie toe and removed a small piece to send out for lab work. dad said to the vet how long does she have to live and the vet said well quite frankly she has already lived her life span which was very upsetting to hear. mom told dad the vet wasn't thinking when she said that because even though our doggie has health problems she is acting quite healthy and lively for a 14 year old. anyway both parents are upset over this and our doggie is now wearing a pressure bandage on her foot. now we have to wait for the lab results.

love Cori

  Hi Picabo and flock
Hello Birdie Commandos, Amando here in Brazil. We are taking a huge bite-out-of-crime as we teach these seven poachers the price of stealing the wild Parrots of South America. I'm certain word will fly fast around the globe that the birds are ready to fight back. It's hilarious how grown men will cry like babies when a few dozen birds decide to fight back. Jenny-Lynn lets out a loud Zon scream and leads the attack. Sky lands on the terrified man's back, leaning in for a good shoulder bite. The man screams in pain. Jenny grabs his right arm in a Zon lock and clamps down hard. Sugar bites his leg as he tries to run. Amando flies towards his face. In fear the lead poacher screams for help but his six friends are busily learning a lesson about crime. Amando bites hard on the mans nose making him yelp in pain, He tries to fight off the angry attack but is unable to stop the bites that come one after the other. Falling helplessly to the ground he cries out in fear for help.
" Stop crying you baby!" Sky orders glaring at him inches from his face. "for years you and your band of thieves have trapped, killed and stolen birds from these jungles without one thought of their lives, their families."
Jenny-Lynn bites down hard on the man's hand causing blood to flow from yet another bite wound. "Soooo, how do you like it? How do you like being the victim?!!!" She growls angrily, glaring furiously into his terrified eyes. " I am not even sure we should let you live for all the birds that have suffered and died at your hands, and those of your friends." She bites down hard again making the poacher scream in pain.
"What should we do with these criminals?" Amando yells out to his friends who have cornered the six others in frightened, bloodied submission. Afraid to move, the seven poachers lay still as the birds stand guard over them, others flying above keeping watch lest their be others hiding in the brush.
Raffi growls menacingly at the head poacher while he stands on his chest, beak inches from his now very sore nose." why don't you try to run?" Raffi moves even closer making the man shiver in fright, as Raffi does his loudest Grey growls.
The Ring leader manages to stumble to his feet, pushing Cappy off him in the process.
Ms BB is waiting in the jungle for a pocher to run by. She has her super dupper net gun ready.
"Bammmmmm !!!!! Bulls-eye!" The net goes over the big screaming man running from Pearl and Silver, Cappy, LA, Raffi and Angel and Pepper. He thrashes on the ground cryen and whimpering.
"Now he knows what a trapped bird feels like,"says Ms BB grinning triumphantly at her victim.
" Let's decide what to do with these thugs!" Amando calls out. While birds stand guard the others begin to fly in circles above their victims, "BOMBS AWAY!!!!!!!!"

  Hello Picabo
I had a blast snow boarding with you we both have gotten so good I just love doing the flips on the board even though I know Squeaky doesnt like it when I do that.
I would love to do some ice fishing its getting a little warmer here so my grandpa went out to do some ice fishing today with one of his buddies who he does a lot of fishing.
My mom said the cookies turned out good she had a extra bag of those chips so wanted to use them up.I just love how the baking makes the house smell so good.
Yup you better be good for when your g ma visits wouldnt be nice to scare her.Even though i love to scare company espically company thats already scared of birds they are the best to chase and scare even more.Its no fun when they arent scared of us to begin with.

  Hi Picabo and flock
Good morning everybirdie, Amando here in the jungles of Brazil as we, BC Birdie Commandos prepare for an all-out war against illegal poaching. A shadow passes over the poachers causing them to startle just long enough to look up and see the huge flock of descending birds. Panic flows through them as they suddenly realize that the birds are not the Blue-Fronted Zons but a huge flock of mixed species, and they are flying directly at them.
Cappy is looking for that head poacher ... he spots a pretty big burlesque man and starts his attack run. He swoops in avoiding flailing hands and objects and rips into some tender flesh and blood starts squirting everywhere ... Cappy chews a little and spits as he takes off to prevent getting hit by the bad guy .... he circles and waits for another opportunity. "Is that a bird in trouble over there????" Cappy immediately heads over to help.
Pookie says" lets get dem Poachers!!" and swoops at the smallest poacher, biting him on the arm as he flies past quickly. The frightened man lets out a loud scream of pain, grabbing at his bleeding arm. Cappy and Cookie land on his back, biting and screaming angrily. The little man tries to get them free by spinning in a fast circle only causing him to trip and fall to the ground. BonBon, Parker and Spot land on their target making him yell out in pain.
"We WILL AVENGE ALL THOSE WHO HAVE SUFFERED. LET THEM POACHERS HAVE IT." Sweetpepper yells as she and Kacey fly towards a second fleeing poacher, biting him on the shoulder before flying away to make a second attack.
"LET 'EM HAVE IT!" Angel & Pepper join in to help with the attack, chasing a third poacher into the jungle, they are joined by a very angry Flitzer, Puffin and Chyna. The man trips over a fallen branch as the birds dive and swoop, biting as they pass by. He yelps in pain as strong beaks leave their mark behind. A forth and fifth poacher flee screaming in terror as flocks of parrots and birds follow, talons and beaks making their marks.
Gus, Kaji and Hulk join forces with the Green Angels as they attack a sixth large man, who tries in vain to fend off the attacking Birdie Commandos. Chipper grabs a beakful of hair and yanks hard as Finny, Chuey and Kallie take bites out of crime. The man begins to cry in pain, pleading with the angry birds to stop. Little Angel and Dixie enter the battle ready for the attack to teach them not to mess with innocent fids who are minding their own business and only want to be left alone to live and let live! LA grabs the man by the nose and bites down hard, refusing to let go as he withers in pain on the jungle floor.
Then the birds turn their attention on the ring leader. His eyes grow huge as dozens of angry eyes glare in his direction. The blood flowing from countless bites inflicted by Cappy........
