Mom saw me in a bird store in San Diego and visited me for months! She would drive 2 hours whever she could to come and play with me. We loved each other right off!! She had to visit me at that store for months before I got to come home with her. Mom's oldest daughter (she has no feathers so I think she looks so silly) and her husband bought me for mom's 47th birthday present. She has said so many times that I am by far the best gift anyone could have ever given her. She says I give her tremendous joy every day!!!.

Hi! My name is Stella

I am a Blue-and-Gold Macaw from Running Springs, CA.

Snuggle-bumpkin

9 years old   F

Blue-and-Gold Macaw

Mom's homemade birdie bread, Nutri-Nuggets, and pomogranites! I love to fling those red, staining seeds everywhere!!!

my big tree playstand, my star-bird net with toys and my moms bed. We love to watch Animal Planet from under the covers!!

I don't like that nasty CAG Katie! She is always trying to sneak into my cage and bite me. She has a real tude!

I love my mom so much! I just want to be wherever she is!! She cooks for me everyday and gives me very fun showers when it is warm enough! I just glow with such beautiful irredecsent feathers!!! My mom buys me the bestest toys and she has made me some neat ones too! She got me a huge net that hangs high from her her ceiling and she filed it with toys for me to play on! My brother and sisters just love to play there with me too!

I love to flap my wings as hard as I can!!! Mama let my wings grow out and we are trying to learn to fly and land right where Mom wants me to. I seem to miss a lot but mom still loves me...even more maybe because she says I am her clumsey Snuggle-bumpkin- !!!.

A Parrot can never have too many toys!.

  Happy Fall to You, Stella!
I can't believe I've taken so long to come by and wish you a Happy Harvest Season. Your festive treats of pomegranates, nuts and cranberries sounds like a wonderful taste adventure into the joys of Fall. I'm hoping for a bit of pumpkin birdie bread with dates today. I've never had a pomegranate. I'll bet they're wonderful! Congratulations on your New Room! That's awesome! Hope by now you've grown more comfortable there. I know I sure like having my own room, something that came about when one of my human brothers moved away. Thank goodness there are still a couple more here or I think my mom would be boo-hooing about that empty nest thing as well. It's hard to see the fledglings fly away, isn't it. Stanley was telling me that Molly's got the chance to go see the Tiki Room! Oh, I've seen pictures of that enthralling place! What fun it'd be to play in there, all those swings and vines and perches to crawl on. I'll bet your new room will end up looking just like a Jungle Room when your mom gets done adding her magic touch. Can't wait to see some pictures of it... with YOU in them, I hope. Oh, for a peek at my pretty B&G California Girl... With luv from R ('>

Wonder what you're doing today. I'm enjoying a warm day, actually it's almost a hot day but the breeze is nice and the big white clouds throw an occasional cooling shadow. The lilies are blooming not far from my aviary and I couldn't help but thing that I've got a B&G friend who's as beautiful as those blooms! Had to come by tosee your picture and leave you wishes for a wonderful weekend. R ('>

This is so wonderful, gettin' to come to your page to write once again! Wooo-Whooo!! Your garden of goodies sounds so tasty; wonder if you've gotten to eat a juciy strawberry yet. Our patch had to be plowed under as a shed is to be built there this coming weekend. Mom says it was time to start over with it anyway. So you like to quilt, do you Stella! I can assure you, I'd be banned from the fabric stash too, mainly because I'd, shall we say, 'spit-up' all over them. Mom had to take my favorite towel out of my laundry basket 'cause I wouldn't stop regurging my food all over it. Guess my bony frame needs the food more than my towel. I miss my towel. I missed it so much after it was removed I crawled into the sock basket and not only yucked them all up, I put holes in about half of them! Good thing it's summer and the guys can wear sandals. Sadly, none of them do so I hear grumbling when my brothers run out of socks earlier than usual. You can see why I wouldn't be allowed around the quilting supplies. A day at the park sounds like a delight, with the exception of that hawk, of course. Shotgun. Mmm, I've heard that word around here also. Our neighborhood hawk must've heard mom when she yelled at him 'cause I haven't seen him yet this summer. She keeps begging him to go hunt somewhere else. Well, gorgeous Girl, I'd best let you go. My mom sends a 'hello' back to your mom! And I send YOU a Big Wing Hug! R ('>

  STELLA!!!!
Oh Stella!! You cannot possibly know the joy I experienced last night at the discovery of a note from YOU! Needless to say, you made my day! My week! My month! Why, the year has been rescued even!! It is SO good to know you are well and that your family and flock are fine too. I've worried about you so often since those horrible fires, not knowing if you were safe, if your lovely home survived... The sigh of relief I breathed should have been enough to blow out the fires that are again blazing away in your home state! I hope these are a long, long, long ways from you this time. So, I take it from your note that Stanley and Shelby are still with you? Perfect! Absolutely perfect. My heart is singing just as your mom's has been at the joy of you all being together. I just can't tell you how wonderful it is to hear from you, Stella. *smile* All is well here in Illinois; it has been the most pleasant of springs... cool and comfortable, clear up until just yesterday. That blasted humidity found us just last night. It officially feels like summer outside now. In all honesty, it feels good to this bird—dad likes his air conditioned house, something that feels nothing like the tropics my blood is built for! I've spent a lot of time outdoors in my aviary where I have lots of tree branches to pluck leaves and bark off of. As is the norm, springtime means less time on the BC for me—I have a tough time getting mom to stop planting or weeding or working in the garden. It's been well past my bedtime many a times before she finally gathers me and the greys up and takes us into the house! But since I'm happiest being wherever mom is then I'd rather be outside late than inside wondering what she's doing. So glad you and your mom have more time together now. Isn't Mom Time the most wonderful thing! That and getting notes from my precious gal, Stella!! My heart is still singing with joy! I can't believe this!! Big, big hug to you too, Pretty Girl!! Great big hug, indeed. R ('>

I long to know that your lovely home is safe and that you are enjoying the bounty of the Holiday Table there. In my tally of the many things I have to be thankful for, having met you, Stella, remains a treasure.

  I just had to stop by and vote for such a beautiful bird. I'm a B&G too. I don't get to come home until Sat. Mom is so excited she's driving everyone nuts. Once I get settled in and mom and I get to know each other better we are gonna go to schools to talk to kids about bird care. I'm a natural show off which is why mom picked me instead of a baby. I'm sure she'll post lots more pictures once I get here. OSCAR

  Summer Days...
Lazy days...if you're a parrot! I sit and watch Mom run circles around me as she keeps up with all there is to do around my house. We spend a lot of time out in the yard waging war against the weeds that wanna grow right along side all the flowers Mom's planted. When not outdoors, I'm inside following Mom from room to room, keeping track of what she's doing. Today's she used that noisy vacuum a lot so I'm about hoarse from 'honkin' along with it! (Just one of those wierd things I do!) I know it's been a long time since you've been on your page but I wanted there to be a note here from me for you if and when you do get the chance to check your page. Hoping all is well at your place, Stella. I miss the days when we used to talk often...you are such a darling girl! If that chance ever comes again, well, I'll be a happy bird! Love and kisses...

Lots is going on at your house...I know this 'cause my Mom's been gettin' notes from YOUR mom. I'm keeping my wings crossed for all of you in hopes that things will work out for the best that's possible. Wonder how your Grandpa is doing. Today is so hot and humid I don't think I'm going outside till late afternoon. I've grown accustom to conditioned air!! Actually, my room isn't cooled like the rest of the house...it's stays pretty warm in here. Just wanted you to know I'm thinkin' about you, as usual!! Hope today, yesterday and tomorrow are all wonderful days!! Love ya...R ('>

I'm SO happy to hear from you!! So happy, indeed. Yes, I've had a fine holiday weekend...and give thanks for all those who gave their lives, including my Mom's grandpa (her dad grew up without a daddy because of WWll) and those who are protecting freedom now. I watched our flag flappin' in the breeze today while Mom planted flowers. So, a mini-vacation's about to be enjoyed! Well, I don't mean to hurry your R&R but I can't wait for that nice long chat you mentioned. Oh, I'm SO happy to hear from you Stella. A long tender birdie hug to you...~R '>

  A Hug & A Birdie Kiss to You!
Just out for an evening cruise...and came by to leave you a 'Hello Stella." I worked with mom in the yard today; I ride on the wheelbarrow handle and supervise the weed collection. If it appears mom's going to stay in one place for more than a minute I get down and go over & sit on her back! Someone riding their bike by one day stopped and said it looked like mom was serving as my lawnchair! She's so nice to give me a comfy place to perch!! I miss ya Stella...Look forward to talking with you sometime! Birdie hugs...& a vote of course!

Just droppin' in to say Hi and leave proof I think of you often. I know how terribly busy you all are...I'm just hoping everyone's well and happy! Will you get more playtime once the summer months arrive and school is out for vacation? Or is it like it was here...the featherless kids did schoolwork year-around which is why they got done 9 months ahead of schedule! One thing I know for sure...you are as beautiful as ever! Trust your new playroom and that lovely palace are being enjoyed. Take care, my special friend...R A V4U...

Stella, hope your Easter Weekend was a fun one. I didn't get to go outside to watch the egg hunt like I usually do because it was TOO cold here. But I am looking forward to getting to chew up an Easter basket when the boys are done with it! Wonder what you and your flock did! Later! R

  Post to the Palace!
With a bow I approach the royal palace and whisper an impressed "Wow"! Your octagon is surely beautiful, especially because YOU are in it! Congratulations on your lovely new quarters. I'd love to know just what your 'favorite things' are that your Mama has stocked it with. I can picture Stanley having a grand time in your previous abode. He's such a character!! And then, the outdoor room! Man, you all are just in Heaven! I want to come for a play day, you betcha!! The rumor about my own room, well, it's just a more private place to sleep where I won't be bothered but instead might be able to sleep uninterrupted. We birds like to be in on the action of the family; problem is the action goes on longer than I need it to and when you're livin' in the thick of the happin' stuff, you can't sleep!! So I now have a new evening routine; perch on mom's arm, parade through the house calling 'Bye-bye' and get tucked into a small sleeping cage in a very dark storage room. Not even close to a palace. But quiet. And dark. I'm happy. I'm happy for you too...sleep well, my Queen Stella, in your palace. And sweet dreams.

  Oh Stella!
My heart is singing with happiness! You are ok!! I was so worried that something horribly sad had happened and that I would never know how you are. I'm so thrilled that it was only "so busy" that kept you away from your webpage! What your Mama is doing is absolutely wonderful. (I'm already worried for that Scarlet Macaw...this stress about you, other birdies...it's going to do me in!) I and my Mom wish we could be there to help you & your Mama. We don't have Bird Marts/Bird Fairs anywhere near here. Chicago's about the closest Bird Happenin' activities...& that's 4 hours away. But my Mom's thought about taking me to local schools with the idea of discusses the responsibilities that come with choosing birds as pets. You are an inspiration to do something with that idea. I'll write more later today...I've got to go eat my eggs and orange slices before it all gets cold...I only got on here just to see if you might have written...and you have... and I'm so happy. Wing Hugs back to you, ever so long and tender, my forever friend...Rainbow.

I just know your artwork is lovely. I can just picture you seeing that blank canvas of white and imagining all sorts of visions of color and pattern! Or the quickest route to get to mom! It sounds like your Mama is an inspiring homeschool teacher. You and Molly are so very lucky...but you already know that! Take a peek out your windows at the valley (I kind of know where you're located) and enjoy the beauty for me.

  Tweety needs your votes for her poem. Her foot had to be amputated Feb. 26th due to the main blood supply being cut in her leg. We had to separate her from her cage mate. I wanted to get her a big cage to move (fly around) in and after paying 258.00 for her leg to become amputated we could not afford to buy her the cage of her dreams. We notice that she flies a little to get around her cage and can defiantly use a bigger one. Thank you; please visit her web site at www.1luckybird.com

Come visit me, Tweety, Frosty and Ringo.
