It was love at first sight. My mom never believed that she would have a Macaw of any sort. I was her first! Every time she came into the store, I knew just how to catch her eye!.

Hi! My name is John Henry

I am a Blue-and-Gold Macaw from Germanton, NC.

I am quite proud of my name, John Henry. I can say it quite clearly too. When I am doing something I am not supposed too, my mom says "John" to get my attention. I look right at her and reply "John Henry" because I know what my name is and it's not just "John".

5 years old   M

Blue-and-Gold Macaw

Noodles of any kind but, I really love pizza and spagetti with chili!

Either hanging by one toe nail from the top of the cage or on the bottom of the cage with all of my toys.

Well, I don't like the broom. I think it's scary. I also think that my mom should be the only one to hold me and I let everyone know.

When I call her momma, she comes to see what I need.

Mom gets upset when I unhook all my toys and drag them to the bottom of my cage. I like to pile them up and dance around them. I am a great talker! My mom teaches me all sorts of wacky things to say. Right now we are working on "Thundercats Ho!". So far I have got the "Ho!" down packed! Mom laughs at me because I like so much that I holler and stretch "Ho!" out for about two minutes! Also, mom thinks I'm sort of silly, my best friend is a kitchen towel. It's my blanky.....

Ho!.

  Vet Visit
I took Joey to the vet on Wednesday for a complete check up. Including wing clipping, toes, and beak trim. He also recieved a microchip as well. Vet said that he was in great condition and I am very pleased with the outcome. He enjoyed the car ride and talked all the way there and back home. He has started a bit of combination moulting and feather plucking. Vet suggested he take a couple of bath's a day to help out. So I purchased a product called Tropical Rain. Joey did not seem to like it at first but it is now getting to enjoy his morning spritzing.

Come visit me, Joey.

  Hi John Henry ---Love Your Name:)
Hi! Thanks for the vote. Left you one:) Today was a nothing day. Mom was busy with school and when her dad came home from work they went out! Mom promised she would play with me tomorrow! So, hopefully I will tell you how that goes tomorrow:):) ♥EMILY ROSE

Hi! How are you? Tonight mom said that it was really really hot.....To-NIGHT! Thats strange. Anyways, like Emily said mom didn't really play with us today because of busyness. So I just sat in my cage SLEEPING! So, gotta go back to sleep, big day for me tomorrow:) Have a peaceful night ¥NAVAJOE

  Mr. John Henry!
Hello! My name's Kelly. Your name was given to me by Emily Rose, our parakeet friend here on the BC. She suggested you as a Bird of the Day nominee. The unique thing about her suggestion is that she and myself would like to see you run on the 26th of September, a date just two days away! This is very short notice, I know, but as the candidate set to be our featured bird in the voting process is no longer active on the Bird Channel, I'm looking for somebirdie willing to run in her place. There's really nothing that's needs to be done in preparation for this election day. Birds from far and wide will seek you out and share a vote with you so that come Monday, the 27th, YOU'LL be our new Bird of the Day. May I please place your name on the BOTD Agenda for the 26th? Please say "YES!"

Sincerely,
Kelly, on behalf of The Calendar Page

Come visit me, Kelly.

  Hello John Henry
You know it would be kinda nice to have some company that is of the feathered kind we could keep eachother company while my parronts are at work or running errands.Mom would love to get a congo african grey but also she would like to get another senegal that is what she had before I came to live with her.She said he was such a sweet smart little guy he would call her mommy she would be in another room and she would call out his name and he would call out mommy.So she is not quite sure yet but she will know whats best when the time comes.Hope you are having a good day.

  Hello John Henry
Thanks for stopping back, I love making new friends here. We've been having really warm weather this week, so mom is getting to the pool daily--she loves it, we don't, so much as it means we are here entertaining ourselves for a couple of hours each afternoon. Today, she is going to make bows for gift baskets when she gets back and she said maybe I could help. If I'm going to help, though, I have to refrain from saying my favorite word, which is STUPID, while she works. She somehow doesn't appreciate my comments on her skills! Here's a vote, fly by soon.

  Hi John Henry
Do you and Kaliagh get along?Mommy always thinks about getting another bird but then worries if we will get along or not.She thinks that I would be very jealous for some reason but she is probably right since I dont like to share.Hows the weather been by you?

  Hi John Henry
It's me, Chilli
I was up early and ate some of my food. And last night, I was real active before bed time. I was still eating when dad put me back in our room.
Today I'm still a little drowzy but dad's gonna watch me and he may or may not give me the medicine tonight. the vet doesn't want me to skip too many doses. I guess they have a lot of that pink stuff and they want to get rid of it.
Why would your mom move you just because you peeled off the wallpaper? I always thought that demolition and remodeling ware our main jobs.
Well, I hope you have a good day.
Love,
Chilli

Did I tell you that I think you are a beautiful bird?
Well, I'm not getting much better. I'm still tired all the time and I sleep alot during the day. I'm not active like I used to be and I'm sitting on my perch, all fluffed up. Dad is worried and is going to call the vet, tomorrow. He may have to take me back to the hospital.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a good Sunday.

  Hi John Henry. Hi Kaliajh
It's me, Chilli.
I don't belivev we've met before. Mighty pleased to meet you both. I love your names.
Please excuse the use of copy and paste but so many friends have asked my how I'm doing that I will never catch up if I don't
Today I was not as active as yesterday. But I still ate good and my poopies are looking almost normal.
I napped alot today but dad knows that I'm getting better and rest is good for me.
I bit dad again when he gave me my meds. I think I have the right to, because he squerts that pink yucky stuff in my mouth. If i could, I'd spit it out.
After the meds dad brought me into the living room to watch TV with him, so he could watch me. I ate a little more and than setteled into my favorite corner, under my food cup and proceded to grind my beak and flip my wings. Dad says that is a sign of comfort and contentment.
Well, that's it for tonight. I hope you had a good day.
Love,
Chilli

Alex your Blue and Gold friend here. Thank you so much for the visit. It is so nice to talk to another Blue and Gold and I really like you because your so handsome and are just as big as me or even bigger. Mom says I am huge for a blue and gold but you can not tell from my picture. My flockmate Sweetie another blue and gold in the flock and I have bonded and are always looking for a place to nest when we are outside of our cages. I love to throw things I will throw anything on top of my cage down to the floor if it is not bolted down. Mom had to buy these special locking dishes for outside the cage and I can not get them lose to throw but the verdict is still out to see if I can figure it out. Mom is going to let me go outside in the aviary today because it is so nice. Have a great day. Your new friend Alex. Leaving a vote.
