After we lost our precious, little Daisy, I was at the Bird store and saw him in one of the cages. I had wanted an ekkie for quite awhile. So I asked about him and learned that he needed to be rehomed. His previous owner had two seriously ill children and had to give him and his flockmates up. He was only two years old and just starting to talk. He was very scared the first time he was taken out of his cage. However, I visited him almost everyday for a month. He soon began to look forward to our visits. He also began to recognize me when I came into the store, and wanted to come out and visit me. One day my husband was with me and asked me when I was going to bring him home. So I wrote out a check, ordered his cage and made arrangements as to when I'd pick him up. It was an excellent decision. He's a delightful, wonderful bird and is very happy in his forever home. He said about three phrases at first. Now, 5 years later, he says about 3 dozen different things, including telling our ringneck, Princess, to "Stop it!" when she's shrieking. He loves to talk and has the cutest little voice! My favorite is, "I go poopy, Mama. I'm a GOOD BOY!" He does, too, and he is!! He's potty-trained..

Hi! My name is Finnegan

I am a Solomon Islands Eclectus from White Lake, MI.

Finny, Finny-Guinny Mr. Finnegan, Buddy, Mama's Boy

8 years old   M

Solomon Islands Eclectus

CHEESE, pecans, CHEESE, grape juice, CHEESE, apples, eggs and just about ANY FOOD Mama and Daddy are eating! Did I mention CHEESE? Oh, and I almost forgot, blueberry yogurt, yummm!

My boing, the baker's rack out on the sun porch (when the weather's warm) and my playstand. I also like to hang out on the fold-down door of my cage, and of course, my fav...on Mama and Daddy.

Touching my head or my back with your hands.

Mommy and Daddy love me SO much that they share their food with me. I get to try so many new and delicious things. What bird wouldn't love that? I LOVE to eat, so that's really high on my priority list. I love to take showers with Mommy, and she and I constantly talk to each other. She's taught me many new words and phrases. I love to talk to Mommy, but not Daddy, although I'm getting better about that. Mommy gives me lots of kissies, too, and I say "Kissy" and make the kissy sound. In all, I say about 30 different things now.

I LOVE being blown dry with the hair dryer after my shower with Mama. I talk a lot, but stop talking when my Daddy enters the room. Best of all, I am potty trained and tell Mama when I have to poopy. I don't happen to think that's quirky, do you?.

What's for dinner??.

  Heya, Finnegan!
3690 from me to you!

Not a lot going on here today. Nice relaxing day with Mom, getting a lot of head scritches and neck and cheek and chin ones, too. Getting in some new feathers, so needless to say, Mom was full of what she calls bird dust. Then I took a huge bath and boy, did that feel good!

Gorgeous here today-- 81, with no humidity or dew points. Sunny, with a nice breeze. Patio doors were open all day to get the fresh air in. Gotta say that it was a perfect day!

Wing hugs coming atcha!
Your buddy,
Kaji

I hope all our dear friends and family are all ok from the fires in CA, floods in FL and the super storms on Sunday in northern MI. There is so much clean up here and will take weeks in many places. We had windshears of 100 mph. One beautiful town has been cut off, can't get in or out. They are working on cutting a path thru all the many trees on the roads to get people to a safe place. We were lucky this time and only had a couple of trees down and debris that we could move to get out. We had a little sun today before the rain. It has really cooled down after the all day storms on Sunday.
Have a good night.
Hugs

Our northwest corner of MI was hit hard today (we are ok, just a couple trees and limbs are down). We had severe t-storms on and off all day. The wind had gusts up to 70mpr. Several trucks and campers were knocked over on the Mackinac Bridge so, it was closed. Hope it calms down as I need to get to sleep on my perch. Hope you are having a peaceful storm free night.
Congrats to American Pharoah (Triple Crown Winner) had another amazing win today at Monmouth Park NJ.

  Heya, Finney!
Wow, we had some icky clouds come in here, and some rain, lightening and thunder. But it seems to have stayed south of us--we sure could have used more rain, that is for sure. Mom turned on the a/c this morning and it is still going--even though we have a good breeze with all that wind gusting around. Hopefully things will cool down like they said. It was 92 here today! We were so lucky to not get the golf ball and baseball sized hail that is falling to our south. Ugh!

Just a lovely day with Mom, and enjoying my watermelon and seeds.

  Heya, Finney!
Mom did it! SHE DID IT! She found me watermelon with seeds! It was by accident too--she goes to this neat store with lots of organic stuff, and other specialty items plus regular groceries. She remembered Boo Boo telling me to check places that sell organic stuff, and she saw they had organic mini-watermelons. Well, they HAD SEEDS! She was so happy she finally found one for me! They are not ready here yet at the farmer's market but she knows that at least she might find them at this store. And she cut it up for me and gave me some with the seeds and I chomped those down in no time. Isn't she the best Mom?

And we went to the Farmer's Market. It was warm, sunny but a bit windy at times. I got to see Paula, and Jerry and Chris, and I even flirted with Chris. He thinks I am pretty cool, and he calls me "Handsome". I like that! I flirted with Paula, too, of course. It was really busy there so we didn't get to visit too long. Then we picked up corn on the cob, and it took longer than I wanted, so I hollered "Vite, vite, vite!" That is French for fast, and it is pronounced 'veet' like 'beet'. Mom taught me that a long time ago, but I haven't said it much. She told me to hold my feathers, and so I said "Ya-Ya-Ya". She laughed at that, alot. Stopped and got some eggs, and I said something that startled the farmer--but he thought I was the coolest thing ever! Of course! Hehe!

Hope we don't get the bad storms they are talking about for tomorrow. We need rain, but not the kind that pounds the ground. Nice gentle one would be lovely. Supposed to be humid, too.

Wing hugs coming atcha!

  Hi Finnegan
We often call the solstice "Midsummer," but it's actually only the beginning. August 1st is Midsummer. the birds have stopped singing. No longer are we awakened at 4AM by the dawn chorus.

Many birds – wrens, robins, and others – may raise more than one brood in a breeding season. Depending on what part of the country you call home, your local birds may still be feeding fledglings, or those young ones might be completely independent by now. This is the time of year when a lot of birds begin to look shabby. Crows are missing feathers, and male Mallards look almost like females. [Listen to Male Mallards Disappear] Northern Cardinals and Blue Jays can be positively bald! It's their annual molt. Or one of two or more for some birds. American Goldfinches lose their bright summer colors in order to blend in with their dull winter surroundings. They'll molt again in the spring to show off those bright yellow feathers.

Some birds even lose the ability to sing after the breeding season is over. The part of the brain used for singing shrinks to lighten the bird's body mass. During the non-breeding seasons of fall and winter, most birds don’t need to sing to establish a breeding territory and attract a mate. Their lighter body mass makes them more agile and thus more likely to evade a predator during their winter foraging.

Those were very nice family pics on FB! But, where were you? Hope mom's B-Day was greyt.
Today was 79 and cloudy. It rained a little and then the sun came out. By late afternoon, we had a mini t-storm with sun after. Then a little rain at dinner. Not a bad day. The parronts got a lot done with my supervision help of course. I think I deserve an extra treat for all that work!

Today was a good summer day. I got to visit with my uncle and cousin. They came to help my parronts move heavy things. But, I got lots of attention! Looks like the next 3 days will be sunny with 83 to 86 degrees. I hear we are having BeeBeeQ kabobs on Sunday. Treats for my feets and on a stick ... what could be better?
