  Morning Angel Snowy, from your Angel Christy
...hello my Illinois Angel man, and your sweet momma! Wowser, we had the mother of all severe rain and thunder last night, lots of local low lying flash flooding, but we made it through with no damage! We are so blessed to have such wonderful neighbors, they help dad or offer to help him with so many little things! The best thing is they are always checking on him to make sure he is okay, and they all love us birds! They helped dad clean out a clogged downspout, two days ago, and it was a good thing! To have good neighbors, you must first be one yourself, and our daddy is very good to everybody! Sometimes they bring us plates of food and great tasting baked things! Have a great ToosDay, and give our love to all in your happy hut, see ya tomorrow...

Your forever friends, Angel Christy & our Dallas family

  Dear Angel Snowy's Flock and Family,
We are so sorry to hear of the sudden passing of dear Angel Snowy. He will be missed by everyone especially at the basebird games.

Our flock sends condolences to your flock along with gentle hugs and kisses to you all.

Our fister Angel Sallykins I know will be there at the Rainbow Bridge to welcome him and show him around and be by his side. No one is really alone at the Rainbow Bridge but our fister has become the welcoming party at the Rainbow Bridge.

Just know that they are all happy and healthy at the Rainbow Bridge hard as it may be, that's what gets my mom by year after year. Through the tears we share with you. We too mourn the heart ache, and give you big birdie hugs to get you thru the day.

One day at a time, we are here if you need us. Just a blog away.

Sending you all big birdie hugs and beaky kisses.

Love and love from above,

No, it can't be true. You can't be gone. This is such sad news. My heart's just breakin' for your Mom and Toby and Miss Ronnie who are now missin' you so much. Snowy, you've always been just the coolest 'Too. You've been a pal of mine and the McFlock's for as long as I can remember bein' a part of this BC family. Thanks for that, Buddy. Thanks for bein' my friend all these years. The world's not gonna be the same without your awesome 'Tooness here, that's for sure.

To Mama Zimmer, me and my mom, we're so sorry. The empty feeling that Snowball's absence has created, we know it's a terrible thing. How we wish it could all be changed and Snowy could be there with you like he's suppose t'be. Please know we're holding you in our thoughts in a special way tonight as well as in the days and weeks ahead, hoping that having others sharing in the sadness of your lose helps make it just a wee bit easier to bear.

  Dear Flockily of Coach Snowy
We are so sad to hear that Snowy flew to the Rainbow Bridge! he looked so happy at the weddings Saturday. We at the Hen House are praying for all of you to remember Snowy as a greyt bird who brought you so much joy and love. We know you are crying now, but hope that soon you will be able to understand that he is waiting for all of us to join him when the Lord comes for us.
He is in good company with Angel Christy, Angel Ms. Chirps, Angel Sally, Angel Bertie and others that we all know and love.
We know there will always be a hole in your hearts from missing him, but that heaven would not be heaven without our beloved birds! God's purposes are beyond our understanding, but we do know that He requires them back to Him. As you go through the stages of grieving for him, remember that all of BC grieves with you. I pray that the angels minister to you and your flockily during this time. Please feel free to call on us at anytime to talk or pray about Snowy. Our door is always open.
Luv, Pastor Spot Le'blaze-atiel, BonBon, and mama Rea♥

  Dear Angel Snowy & Aunt Jeannett & Flock,

It's your Friend, Oz and my Mom. We are just so upset and can't believe you have left this earth! Oz & You were just at the Double Wedding on Sat. I'm so, so sorry to hear this Jeannett and our hearts ache for you and the rest of your Flock as I'm sure they feel it also. Snowy was 18 yrs. but really that's not long for a Cockatoo as I'm sure you know BUT it was his time to go and there was nothing anyone could have done. It sounds like Snowy went very quick and did not suffer which is such a good thing. He had a great life with you, Jeannett and you'll always have his memories. I know a piece of your heart goes with each and everyone of our Family Members. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Casper and so many other Angels I'm sure greeted him at the Rainbow Bridge.

Good Bye my Friend Until We Meet Again.

Love & Winghugs,
Oz (Your Pink Friend)

  Day 21--Cheticamp River Kayaking part 2
Hello Everybirdie, Angel Girl with today's BOTM post. What fun it is to kayak down the rapids, and paddle through the quiet calm between high mountain peaks towering above the river far beneath. As the remainder of our group finish their trip through the first rapids, we paddle along, on calm still waters. Along the shoreline we see a Moose grazing in the cool of the tall tree-lined river. A lone coyote dashes out of sight as we draw near to his hiding spot. The Canadian Geese honk their annoyance of our intrusion upon their domain. It isn't long before making a large curve in the River we enter our second, longer rapids.
"Hey, this is greyt. Like a long roller coaster" Peppino squeals delightfully as he, Rio and Tango paddle fast entering the swift current, bobbing like an apple in a barrel of water
"Snowy, paddle on the right" Finnegan calls out, paddling frantically as their kayak is pulled into the rapids
" okay everybird watch out for boulders, and fallen tree branches, be careful, see ya at the bottom" Angel shouts as her kayak rushes head-long into the fast moving waters ahead.
"Chyna, you need to lean to the lean back so we stay upright." Cori warns her.

"Spot, you look sea-sick" BonBon giggles making fun for her frother, " you ain't gonna puke are you?"
"BonBon, behave" Poppa Sky tells her as he and BB flash by, barely avoiding a giant red boulder poking out of the river.
Pearl and Silver let their kayak go and keep their paddles on the ready to push away from the rocks, they glide smoothly to the bottom of the rapids where they wait for the others. Sugar and Jenny0Lynn with Lalo and Sweetie in a tandem kayak begin to paddle to the further left edge before pointing into the rushing rapids. Their kayak bobs roughly, then smooths out sailing through the water swiftly. the girls watching intently for snags under the water, and pushing off from the great boulders that point their angry heads towards the sky. Hulk bravely paddles into the rapids, Snowy and Strawberry paddling on the right to keep them steady as the current under he surface draws them along to the bottom.
Chipper, Cheyenne, Cookie and TiPaul enter the rapids last, their kayak begins to wobble and then straightens out. They paddle madly as a black form seems to leap out of the water just ahead. The water is too strong and their kayak bumps the rock, causing it to spin in a circle. Facing backwards their kayak is out of control as they drop down the rapids too fast. Chipper yells as water washes over them. Cookie and Cheyenne, paddle in reverse, slowing their descent. Together they work to turn their kayak, as more rocks rush towards them. The others watch in shock as their friends dip out of sight under the water. Holding their breath they wait. "There they are!" everyone cheers."
Breathing hard the foursome stops in the midst of the others.

  Day 20- Cheticamp River Kayaking
Hello everybirdie, Angel Girl here with today's wet BOTM post. We finally arrived at the inland beginning of the Cheticamp River, where we found our Kayaks ready and waiting for our down river tour. The sun was just peaking over the mountains when we pushed off and began to slowly paddle out into the calm river. We had not gone very far when the current of the river began to move rapid and strong towards our first white-water adventure.
" Angel GIRL!!!" Raffikki called loudly, " you sure this is safe?"
"Well, I think so," she saw the look on several faces change, " YES, of course it is, just hang on tight to the sides of the kayak and paddle when you can. Watch for rocks, and paddle backwards to slow yourself down to navigate around them. SEE YOU ALL AT THE BOTTOM"
"WEEEEEE," Little Angel and Dixie's kayak begins it rapid ride down the rough, fast moving waters, spray flying up into their faces, " this is fun Dixie" Dixie wasn't so sure, but paddles and leaned slightly to go around the first rock in their pathway.
"Oh, my feathers!" Chyna complained as water soaked her from head to tail, " It's freezing cold too!"
"Paddle harder Cori" Boo Boo ordered as she navigated a turn in the river expertly
""BRRRRRR. It's icy. I'm soaked too" Falco called to Chyna as she and Willie splash around a huge boulder in the river.
"Havin' fun BB?" Sky asked laughing as water covered over their kayak, as they bobbed and spun down the decline" reaching quickly back to check on his pickles. " Ok, their safe!"
"YUCK!!!!!! " BonBon glares at Spot who grins back, " you did that on purpose." BonBon shakes her feathers dry of water and "OHHHHHHHHHH, algae" Spot giggles and splashes her again with the paddle. She sticks out her tongue. " where'd you learn that from"
"I'm tellin' Poppa Sky on you Spot" and Little Angel"
YEEHAWW" SamIAM yells as he and Miranda move swiftly through the choppy waters, mist and waves soaking them to the skin. " This is so much fun"
" Hold on tight" Jesse yells to Falco as they reach a very rough, rocky spot at the bottom of a short falls. Willie and Jesse paddle hard to keep up-right and finally they exit the white water into the calm river below. :Wasn't that greyt falco?" Jesse asks, but only gets a fluff of wet feathers in response. The boys laugh.
" Here we go Gus" Hulk says as they enter the rapids, water falling high around them
"Snowy, Strawberry are you two ok?" Angel calls back seeing them caught up on a small dead-fall( tree limb) in the water.
"Yep, we're free" the kayak moves off swiftly, into the deeper water.
Chipper, Cheyenne, Cookie and TiPaul ride the rushing current safely through the first turn, into the rough, drop over the falls, when suddenly their kayak turns sideways. They paddle hard trying to correct themselves, but it's too late, they tip to the left and then turn upside down. Just as swift they roll themselves upright to the applause of the others watching from below.

  Hi Snowy,

It's Oz and what's wrong with you, Boy? You know you can fly down here anytime and stay with us. I'm so glad you're here and you can go with us to the Castle at 2:00 because the whole Bridal Party has to be there earlier. The Double Wedding Ceremony is for 4:00 and the Cocktail hour is after that and then the Reception starts. We're gonna have a blast and I hope you have your dancing shoes on because Everybirdie knows that I love to DANCE! Here's a vote and yes I hope you're planning on at least staying overnight because it's gonna be a long Party til wee hours LOL!

  Day 19--Sights and Scenes to behold
"HELLOOOO!!!!!!!" Angel Girl yells, listening to her voice echo off the rock faces of the mountains. " This is so cool. We have so much to do in this one park, it's incredible."
"Oh look" Kaji points as he spies a large mother black bear with three tumbly teenage cubs following behind, wrestling and rolling in the long meadow grass.
There are many activities to do when visiting the Cape Breton Highlands National Park. Activities include camping, hiking, sightseeing, swimming, fishing, cycling, golfing, kayaking and surfing. There are endless swimming options available for all ages in the park. There are five main salt water ocean beaches in the park and two freshwater lakes. The ocean beaches include Ingonish Beach, North Bay Beach, Broad Cove Beach, Black Brook Beach and La Block Beach. The two freshwater beaches include Freshwater Lake and Warren Lake. Freshwater Lake and Ingonish Beach are both supervised with a lifeguard during the summer months. There are very strong currents at Black Brook and Ingonish Beach which must be considered when bringing small birdies to these two beaches.
"Hey let's go white water kayaking down the Cheticamp River." Pookie says eager for adventure. " Then we could try surfing off the beach."
"Sounds like fun." Angel Girl climbs up on a tree stump to be heard. " OK, who wants to try some kayaking in white waters?" she looks as every wing goes up. " cool bunch of adventures."
"They Park ranger says they have kayaks arrival at the top of the river. We can ride the horses there, or hike cross country." Jenny-Lynn tells the group.
"We better hike, leave the horses here until we return and head down tot he ocean later for some surfing. Pookie offered to help teach us a few basics." Willie adds, grabbing his backpack
. The sun shines like sparkles through the heavy pine forest canopy. As the group walk they reach the opening over looking the ocean and park below. Steep cliffs and deep river canyons carve into a forested plateau bordering the Atlantic Ocean.
"BB, this is so beautiful, I feel like we have escaped into the past. Look how alive it all looks here." Sky hugs BB close as they look out over the park.
"Dixie, look, deer" Little Angel watches as the group graze in the shadows of the mountain.
Rio and Cydney, stand in awe at the size of the ocean stretched before them. " It goes on forever"
Jesse, joins Falco as they take photos to member their trip to Cape Beeton. " Popeye, Cori, Boo Boo and Pearl stop to admire an Eagle soaring high in the sky above them.
"We better get going so we have time to kayak before the sun gets too high in the sky. It will be so much fun bumping and splashing down the river." Angel Girl talks to Lalo and Sugar as they begin to hike down the soft, leaf covered pathway.
Sky grins, patting his backpack. " some pickles just in case I get hungry."
Angel Girl giggles and shakes her head at her frother, " always hungry"

  Day 18--Cape Breton Highlands National Park
Hello everybirdie, Angel Girl here with today's BOTM post. It was so eggciting to see the whales so up close and personal. The majestic giants were happy to show-off their talents, leaping, and blowing for us as we paddled among them heading for our new campsite at Cape Breton National Park. I wish to take a moment to thank everyone for their their daily votes and support in my quest for the throne. Sharing this adventure with all my friends is making it a special memory for me.
After paddling along the coast we finally arrived at Cheticamp, on the edge of Park. Here we were reunited with our horses, and were able to pick up a few needed supplies that my frothers Jesse and Amanda, being boys, forgot to include in our packs. The park is located in the northern end of the island and covers one-third of the Cabot Trail. It passes through the park featuring spectacular ocean and mountain views. The park is well known for its "steep cliffs and deep river canyons that carve into a forested plateau bordering the Atlantic Ocean" The park was the first National Park in the Atlantic provinces of Canada and covers an area of 948 km². It is one of 42 in Canada's system of national parks. It is known worldwide as the place where singer Taylor Mitchell died after being fatally attacked by coyotes, the only adult human fatality from coyotes in history.
At the western entrance of the park is the Acadian village of Chéticamp on the Gulf of Saint Lawrence . On the eastern side of the park are the beaches at Ingonish on the Atlantic Ocean. In between are mountains, valleys, forests, waterfalls, rocky coastlines and a tundra-like plateau known as the Cape Breton Highlands. Park wildlife includes moose, black bears, coyotes, and Bald Eagles. The park provides habitat for the uncommon Bicknell's Thrush and Gaspe' Shrew. The first nest records of Boreal Owls for Nova Scotia were found in the south west corner of this park.
" Lalo, come on, you have enough souvenirs" Jenny-Lynn says, wings on her hips as she keeps an eye on her fister in the gift shop in Cheticamp.
"What's this Acadian thing?" Gus asks Hulk, "reading a sign mounted in town square
"Acadians are of mixed decent, French and other races. They came here from Louisiana"
"So we can get some Cajun cookin here? Let's go get something to eat!" Gus replies happily
"Wait for us" Susan and Snowy yell as they weave through the crowd of horses and riders." can't pass on a greyt meal"
Angel Girl continues to check their supplies list preparing to head to their next camp site.."Oh we need more eggs and oatmeal." She gives the list to Sky who heads off to gather all they need from the store near by.
"This place is beautiful" SamIam comments, looking out over the ocean, :has a historic appeal to it."
" I have everything we need. We better ride out before it gets too dark: Sky tells Angel Girl
"Ok, let's mount up birdies, time to head into the mountains."

  Day 17--A Whale of a Good Time
Good morning everyone, Happy Humpday. Today we will finish our trip along the coast. Arrangements were made for our horses and supplies to be delivered to our newest camp site in the Cape Breton Highlands National Park. It's sure been an awesome sight to see all the wild seabirds including Arctic Puffins and several Gull and Tern species. The Grey Seals were a playful surprise, however as many of us know their plight is sad as animal rights groups world-wide fight to ban the annual seal hunt. We had just set off when we were joined by a pod of playful, entertaining whales.
Spot lands eggspertly in his kayak, and waves at a whale! BonBon and Snowflake shriek and laugh as one of the whales 'blows' right next to them and they get showered!"Oh, no, we're covered in whale snot!" yells BonBon! Spot and the band of bros. laugh at them as they try to wipe off the stuff!
"That'll teach you to get too close to the whales! " says Spot.
Just then a whale comes up under Spot's kayak and dumps them into the water! The mama Whale says," it's not nice to laugh at the pretty girl birds! "
"Yes ma'am, we're sorry!" says Spot and the boys reply! He whispers to Panther," we better get out of here!"
"What an adventure! "says Panther." We could have been eaten by whales!"
Angel Girl laughs and says, "silly boys, whales don't eat birds!"
"Today we visit Cheticamp, Cape Breton, a famous Nova Scotia destination, known for it's whale sightings. The most frequent sightings are big Fin whales, dolphins, Minke whales, Humpback whales and Pilot whales. Seals and Puffins are observed on nearly every tour.
"hey look, spotted whales?" Puffin calls out, " look at the white spots"
"They are actually North Atlantic right whales which come here rarely with their calves for the summer from Florida and Georgia waters. Those white patches seen on the right whale's head are raised tissue that is actually dark in color called callosities. Whale lice or cyamids covering the callosities are what makes them appear white. " Sky explains
Little Peep and Rio stand tall to get abetter glimpse of the rare whales. Kiddo and Sweetpepper take photos of the whales as they surface close by. Pilot whales splash happily at the kayaking birdies, as they call in whale-enise to one another. " They're so cute" Kacey adds as she sketches a whale jumping out of the water on her art pad.
" These are so gentle yet so large" Mr Finnegan comments to Susan as they sit watching from their kayak.
" Until recently Whales were feared as being dangerous and aggressive, yet look, how gently they swim and play close to us." BB states as she snuggles with Sky to watch they giants of the ocean.
"Willie, did you get a good shot of that baby and her Momma?" Falco asks from across the group of kayaks bobbing softly in the calm waters.
"YEP! Mom's gonna love these pictures."
Reluctantly the group begins to paddle towards their next stop-over! Spot waves good-bye!

  Day 16--Kayaking Adventures
Good morning everyone, Angel Girl here with today's post. The afternoon turned out perfect for kayaking along the coast line. We stop for lunch in a sheltered cove, where within minutes we are able to visit a nationally known Seabird nesting site. Here Terns, Gulls and other species nest noisily in the rocky cliffs and along the shoreline. As we enjoyed our lunch the sounds from the nesting birds was difficult to hear over.
"WOW, I can't believe how loud they are" Popeye yells to Chyna only inches away. The two girls laugh as neither can hear one another.
"Look" Cydney says pointing to a family of whales surfacing not far off shore. She snaps several pictures before joining Willie, Kaji, Lizzie and Cookie as they hike to the nesting grounds with the others. " Yuck!" she looks down, and sees she'd stepped in Sea Gull poop, " OH no, my new shoes!" she looks sadly at the mess. The others giggle
"Snowy!" Sky calls, come here buddy wanta show you something " a lobster" they look at the large clawed creature staring angrily back from a shallow pool of water among rocks. Let's help him back into the ocean." Sky says trying to pick the snapping Lobster." Snowy grabs a stick and lifts him up as he clamps down. " not such a nice fella are ya?" he laughs as Sky and him gently lower him into the surf.
"AHHHHHH, babies" Little Angel tells Dixie, " aren't they cute." they watch the fledglings trying to rise into the sky as clouds of white take off from the shore. " doesn't it make you just wanta have a baby to love too?" LA gets all dreamy eyed. "Maybe we can adopt a baby bird?" she smiles sweetly watching the youngsters.
Boo Boo and Cori take photos of the birds in flight, as Chipper and BonBon draw pictures in their sketchbooks. Spot and a few of the boys take off into the sky flying with the Seabirds, screaming happily with them.
"Ok, sorry everybirdie but we must move on. We have lots more to see" Angel Girl calls loudly, trying to be hear over the roar of bird voices. Reluctantly everyone says farewell to their new friends, as they head to the shore and get their kayak ready to move on. The whales continue to swim close to the shore as the group paddles off. Angel Girl shares a little history of Cape Breton as they quietly paddle along.

In 1784, Britain split the colony of Nova Scotia into three separate colonies: New Brunswick, Cape Breton Island, and present-day peninsular Nova Scotia, in addition to the adjacent colonies of St. John's Island (renamed Prince Edward Island in 1798) and Newfoundland. The colony of Cape Breton Island had its capital at Sydney on its namesake harbor fronting on Spanish Bay and the Cabot Strait. Its first Lieutenant-Governor was Joseph Frederick Wallet DesBarres (1784–1787) and his successor was William Macarmick (1787).

Large-scale shipbuilding began in the 1790s. Shipbuilding peaked in the 1850s, marked in 1851 by the full rigged ship Lord Clarendon, the largest ever built in Cape Breton.

  Day 14--Inverness-Eagle Eye Kayak tour-part 1
Good morning everybirdie, Angel Girl with today's first Inverness adventure. As the red sun rises over the ocean we finish our hearty breakfast of toast, scrambled eggs, bacon and fruit served up by some of our handsome boy-birds. By the time the sun is above the waters edge we are riding off to begin today's fun tour. Our destination is Eagle Eye Kayak tours. We will kayak from Inverness Harbour along the warm calm waters of the Northumberland Strait. See the rugged cliffs, waterfalls and rocky coastlines. Watch the many Bald Eagles that frequent the area. Take a break for a snack on a secluded beach and look for beach glass or fossils. We will learn to and experience the peacefulness of paddling the spectacular coast and enjoying the natural beauty of the coastline.
"Everybirdie ready?" Angel Girls calls as we turn our horses out into the paddock, with plenty of hay and water. " we are off for a five hour adventure. Make sure to bring your cameras, water bottles and let's have some serious fun" Angel Girl waves her wing and leads off towards the shoreline where the instructors are waiting.
After an in-depth discussion on paddling, safety and making certain our life-jackets are on correctly, we are assigned a Kayak, and push out to sea. "Hey that sounds so cool. Out to sea!" Angel Girl giggles happily as she tries to balance in the kayak.
"Wee, this is fun" Rio yells to Kaji and Lizzie in the Kayak. " wow, don't move too much!" he tells Miranda in another Kayak.
"Look!" Jenny-Lynn points to a distant dark shape, " a whale" she shows Lalo and Sweetie, who stares in awe as the giant mammal surfaces int he far distance.
"Eagles!" Finnegan says, watching the majestic form above, " he's beautiful"
" Tango and Susan look down into the dark water seeing small schools of fish swimming by their Kayak"
"Oh Dixie, this is soooo much fun" Little Angel smiles eggcitedly, " I love kayaking" she paddles like a pro. Sky gives her a frown, as he and BB gain their sea-legs and stop their Kayak tipping side to side.
"Touchy things aren't they" Pearl cries as Silver and Peppino try to steady their wobbling kayak.
Finally we are all ready, and begin to dip our paddles into the calm ocean water. The kayaks move silently, some steadier then others as first-time paddlers learn how to do it. Before all have mastered paddling and off we head along the coast-line.
"A moose" Pookie calls out. A huge bull raises his head from drinking, and watches the birds paddle past. Ducks and Canada Geese flock along the waters edge, swimming along beside us as we go. " WOW, Swans." a group of thirty or more white Swans honk their annoyance of our intrusion. Polly and Falco snap pictures with their cameras.
" Everybirdie" Angel Girl yells out, " Seals" the coastline area is grey with seals. Their calls filling the air loudly. Many hurriedly dive into the water, coming closes for us to take pictures. " this is amazing!" Angel Girl takes lots of photos

  Day 13--Welcome to Inverness & its County
Hello everybirdie, Angel Girl here from Inverness, Cape Breton Island. Before we begin I want to ask that everybirdie continue in prayer. We have an urgent request from one of our BC family who wish to remain anonymous at this time. Their sweet baby is in critical, life & death crisis. Also our BC Queen Chuey is not feeling well, although there seems to be some improvement day so ask for continued prayers.
After a mix-up due to Chuey's need for immediate medical care, the wedding of Tiamaria Ganster to my frother Casey went on. It was to be rescheduled, sorry for the mix-up. They will be holding a reception later in the month to celebrate. Rev Spot did an awesome job of performing his very first Celtic wedding.
Now that we have relocated to Inverness ( Scottish Gaelic: Baile Inbhir Nis), a small rural community of approximately 3000 persons.

Located on the west coast of Cape Breton Island fronting the Gulf of St. Lawrence, Inverness sits astride a small coal seam which was exploited from the late 19th century to the mid-late 20th century, beginning with a mine opened by William Mackenzie and Donald Mann during the 1890s after they achieved control of the Inverness and Richmond Railway. Several more mines opened in and near Inverness during the early 20th century, but many closed following World War II with the last one closing in the early 1990s following a fire.

The community was incorporated as a town in 1904. It experienced economic hardship since large scale industrial coal mining ended; the local economy is now based mainly on fishing and tourism. Inverness Raceway was established in 1926, and harness races are held twice weekly between May and October. North America's only true links golf course, the (200-acre (0.81 km2)) Cabot Links is located on the former coal mine and overlooks beautiful sandy beaches. Inverness County is like an unspoken guardian of Cape Breton Island’s Celtic traditions. Its tiny communities are teeming with pride and a genuine way of life that has maintained Gaelic traditions throughout the years. There are many Celtic treasures and traditions waiting to be discovered in Inverness County, from its lively community dances to its well-known outdoor music concerts. The sunset side of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia seems to whisper all things Gaelic.

"WOW, this is so beautiful" Cinn-A-Bunn says taking in the panoramic view of Inverness and county. " Look at the ocean, how blue it is from up here on the mountainside." Zippy adds taking photos.

The birds take in the scene set out before them. Starting tomorrow they will be busily eggploring many interesting and fun adventures.

  Day 11--The Greyt Race to the finish
Hello Everybirdie, Angel Girl here with today's BOTM post. I wish to first ask that you PRAY FOR QUEEN CHUEY. She is not feeling well, and as of yet the cause is "inconclusive" however she seems to have improved slightly in the past 24 hours. ALSO A REMINDER of the wedding of Tiamaria Ganster and my frother Casey Thrift will take place tomorrow-Friday on my page at 7PM EST--all are invited to join them as they exchange their vows in true Scottish style. Reception to follow.
As we left it yesterday Miss Chipper had flown into second place behind SKY. Everybirdie is pushing themselves on this last Triathlon event. Dixie is slowing down quickly, his feet and legs begin to hurt. Little Angel looks back as she waddles at top-speed down the hill. She sees Dixie begin to limp, then finally stop a sad look crossing his handsome face. Little Angel stops, and turns back to join Dixie when outta the blue Puffin and Tango come up from behind and lift Dixie onto their shoulders, running together wings acrossed each others backs. WHAT A SHOW OF TRUE SPORTSBIRDSHIP. The trio catches up to Little Angel who is jumping and clapping in delight as she watches Dixie happily completing the course with help from his friends. She yells and cheers as they come to where she is waiting, and the four birds run together side by side down the hill and head into the stretch moving fast.
The Trio and L'il Angel quickly catch up passing the others two by two soon taking third place as Chipper Sky and the others give it their all. Suddenly Rio, Lalo, Miranda and Peppino appear among the fore-runners and the push is on. Sky stumbles over a tree root, and fights to keep his balance. Willie grabs him by the Wing stopping his head long fall. After a quick man-birdly-hug they are off once more as the finish line appears in the distance. The four-some of LA, Dixie, Puffin and Tango begin to move forward into second position. Chipper flies into first as the group of runners/fliers move together towards their goal.
With the red finish line only ten feet ahead the foursome puts their all into it and take over the lead, as the others see Dixie clapping and Conure screeching in happiness they begin to yell and clap, cheering them on. The others slow their pace as they watch in awe as Tango and Puffin carefully place Dixie onto the ground only four steps from the finish. Little Angel takes Dixie by the wing, letting his weight fall upon her, as she helps him take one, two three steps with just one left she lets Dixie step carefully forward and the crowd goes crazy with screeches, screams and bird calls, DIXIE ADLER is this years 2014 Birdathalon WINNER. Cameras flash as sports announcers push forward, microphones in hand to get an interview with the winner.
"Do you have any words for those watchin' at home?" CBC asks
"YES. I had a little help from my friends." Dixie breaks down here, tears streaming down his cheeks as his Little Angel hugs him close.

  Day 10--The Greyt Race to the Finishline
Wow, what a spectacular fireworks display last evening over the ocean. After a day of dancing, playing instruments and dining on fine Scottish cuisine, a relaxing rest on the beach, as the skies filled with color was the perfect ending.
Today is the Triathlon. We're up bright and early to warm up for the Greyt Race. We'll splash in the ocean, ride our horse over rough terrain and finally fly or waddle to the finish. This evening we will continue down the Celtic Trail to Inverness, where we will spend two days exploring the area, and taking part in a wonderful, SURPRISE WEDDING. YES, a wedding. My frother MR Casey Thrift will wed his darling Tiamaria in an ocean-view outdoor ceremony, followed by a reception in the Parish courtyard of St John's Church. Everybirdie is invited to join them on this special occasion as they exchange their vows of love in true Scottish style. The ceremony will take place at 7PM EST on my page # 224627
The ocean is calm, and blue as we ride off to the starting line of today's cross country Triathlon. Pearl, and Silver have been practicing since sign up earlier in the week and are the two to watch for. Snowy, Cydney, Strawberry and TiPaul are strong splashers for the first leg of the three event competition. Sky and BB, Kiddo, Cori and Pepper have been working on their horse-birdship skills and we expect some awesome results from them. In the final leg Susan, Sweetpepper, Dixie, Little Angel, aka lightening-streak, and Raffi are rearing to show their stuff.
The whistle goes to signal the start. All the birdies are lined up as the starting pistol sounds. As a flock they run to the waters edge, wings out, water splashing far and high, they show their best efforts. Pearl dives beak first into the water, sending ripples in all directions, Casey puts his toes in and backs out, " Too cold for me" "Come' on sweetie" Tiamaria calls, splashing intot he surf fearlessly. Thoroughly soaked they wade towards the waiting horses hitched on shore. Casey is still not wet, and Tiamaria is splashing him as fast as her wings will beat.
TiPaul bolts off the ground onto Lightning as is riding towards the rocky hills at the end of the beach with Sky in hot pursuit. BB waves as she charges her horse past the group, up the hill, and starts along the Celtic trail. Sugar and Thorin are closing in fast, as Chyna and Dyna-Dancer take second position. Here comes Boo Boo on Starfire, she's pushin' into third position. Sky takes the lead and arrives at the third event start.
Sky never looks back, but is off at a fast waddle, Sugar jumps clear of Thorin and is on the run, quickly catchin' up to Sky Boy. BB stops to catch her breath as she dismounts and begins the last leg. Spot, coming to a screeching stop, jumps right over Hulk is has gotten off to a quick start. Here comes Miss Chipper, she flies over the runners heads to take second position as they begin their climb up the hillside....

  Day 9--Music to my ears??
Hello everybirdie, Angel Girl here with today's BOTM post. I's been a wonderful, albeit loud day here in Port Hood as some of our talented friends have given their all to learning to play the bagpipes. Miss Lizzie certainly is the best, but my own frother Mr. Sky is mighty good too. No wonder he's such a wind-bag"
"Hey, now SKY was that nice?" Angel Girl glares at him, scowling after her frother swatted her on the shoulder.
"I am not a "wind-bag" now am I sweetheart?" Sky asks BB, who is grinning widely, trying to look innocent as possible.
"Ah, come on Sky, I was only teasing you." Angel Girl says masking her delight in getting one on her frother at long last.
"Listen to this" Polly says taking a deep breath and blowing through the mouth part of the blow pipe as hard as possible. " eeeeeeettttteeeeeekkkkkkwhyatie"
"Hey that's really cool Polly" Silver says holding his wings over his ear holes
"My turn" Spot says taking a b ig breath and puffing out his checks like a hamster. " wwwwykrjfjsdbs" Spot frowns at his bagpipe, then laughs, ready to try again.
"Hey, that's greyt Sky" Angel Girl says in a whisper to Kacey and Mikey, told ya he was a wind bag." Sky shoots her a hotty look and rolls his eyes at his fister.
"ME, ME, Me!" Little Angel yells, as she gets ready to play. She takes a deep breath, then suddenly she swallowed the air in her mouth. " BURPPPPPP!" she giggles as the sound escapes her beak, " now I'm ready." she tries once more. Music comes softly out of the bagpipe, and rises in volumne. Finishing LA grins happily as she kisses Dixie next to her.
Gus picks up his blow pipe, takes a breath and begins to play "Danny Boy" like a pro. Everybirdie stops tolisten as he continues to play. Kaji joins him, followed by Miss Lizzie. They play the song perfectly. Every birdie claps as it comes to a close.
"You guys are awesome" Angel Girl says, " You should go on the road"
Willie, Hulk, Jenny-lynn and Peppino pick up their drum sticks and begin to hit their snare drums, marching back and forth like true Scotsmen.
After a day filled with music and dancing everybirdie is happy to head down to the beach for the Fireworks over the ocean. Tomorrow the triathlon takes places."Has anybirdie seen Tiamaria and Casey? They disappeared towards the Chapel this morning?" Finnegan asks

  Hi Snowy sweetie
I want to thank everybirdy for their prayers! Mila's family is truly grateful! We all know the power of prayer is a powerful thing...but we are all in shock over little Mila's progress. She had brain surgery 7:30am on Friday. When the surgeons went in, they discovered that some of what was tumor, was actually scar tissue from her surgery lastyyear, & sort of made a pocket that the larger tumor was sitting in. They were able to ENTIRELY remove BOTH tumors! On Saturday, she was moved to a regular room & they had her up walking! On Sunday, less than 48hrs upon completion of her surgery, MILA WAS SENT HOME...TRULY A MIRACLE!!!
Mila's family would still appreciate ur prayers. Since this cancer came back so quickly & aggressively, doctors are going to treat it very aggressively with chemo & radiation. Mila is doing wonderfullly! She has to take it easy, but she's up & playing with all of her princess toys! She'll walk up to u, give u a hug & tell u that she has a boo-boo & that herhhead hurts. It's truly amazing & miraculous! All things are possible with God!
Love from
TiaMaria & Mom Sandy

Come visit me, TiaMaria.

  Day 8--Chestico Festival dance lessons
Hello everybirdie; What a greyt time we had on the beach. The bikini competition was amazing, and we only had to pull three of the boys off the stage. LOL! It was so much fun getting a chance to see all the latest European styles and designs. Between the warm surf and the savory foods it has been an eggciting visit in Port Hood. Today we get our chance to watch, and try our talented talons in some Celtic dancing, and maybe even put our beaks to the bagpipes and play some Gaelic tunes. The Interpretative Celtic Music Center is open to visitors, who can try not only the bagpipes, but also their wings at being a drummer as well.
"Hey L'il Angel, what are you dressed like that for?" Angel Girl asks her fister, eying up Little Angel's new Celtic tartan kilt.
"I'm going to take Highland dancin' lessons today" L'il Angel says putting her tam on her head and looking at herself in her mirror.
"Dixie? Are you ready sweetheart?" L'il Angel yells into the tent door.
Slowly Dixie exits the tent, his face blushed red. He looks around quickly making sure the coast is clear. HE is wearing a kilt too, complete with a sash over hi shoulders. " We're taking Scottish dance lessons" It was then that Dixie saw that many of the other birds were sporting kilts in various Tartans ( Clan colors).
"See, we all are had the same idea" Sky says walking past in his kilt (Feileadh-beag - pr: feela beg). Sky stands tall, and smiles. "It's birdly. It's not a dress Dixie!"
"Hi SamIAm, you off to the bagpipe lessons?" Kaji asks, reining in his horse, " That's were Lizzie Pookie and I are riding too. Com' on with us"
The birds mount up and head off to the Music center and the MacInnis Sportsplex. There is Celtic music, dancing demonstrations and more Scottish foods to try today. Tomorrow is the Triathlon. Many famous fiddle-players, Celtic musicians from as far away as Scotland, British Columbia, Canada and the USA have arrived for the days concerts, lessons and fun.
At the Celtic Music Center, Snowflake, Little Angel, Cookie and Cydney stand as the instructor Patricia Chafe shows them the first dance steps. 'Ok, one, two, three..." Little Angel takes the first two steps then suddenly making a quick turn on one foot, she trips sending Cydney falling into Snowflake. The three girls giggle as they lay on the floor in a jumbled heap at Cookie's feet. "Ok, let's try this again. Maybe you should stand over here, Little Angel" Pat says, walking her to the other side of the line. The three girls do the steps again, perfectly. Then the others join them, as the fiddles play a quick tune. The laughing birdies have lots of fun, learning to dance. After a few lessons, they sit down to watch some experienced dancers for a while. " We did greyt" Dixie says happily as he hugs LA close.
"Ok Sky and BB. You're turn" Sky leads BB in a graceful Highland Waltz. Everybirdie applauds their performance. "WE practiced!" BB says
