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 - "HI!" FROM THE DERBY!

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??.

That is funny how you say the right thing at the right time and sure would make your mom laugh and not be so upset when you come out with them words LOL
Today was another too cold day out for me to go out for a sunbath so I helped mom in the house today. We cleaned out the cupboard under the sink. I sat on the chair and watched but didn’t see anything at all interesting under there. Mom has some tomatoes on the kitchen sink window sill and every once in a while I fly over and take a bite of the one. Yet mom puts any my bean/rice meal I wont eat it. “If there ever comes a time when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart. I’ll stay there forever.” V4U. Hugs~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

You are too funny! My mom would laugh at that too, instead of getting mad. Don't forget to vote for your favorite lady's and gent's hats on the milonga page from now to May 7. You can get there through the big hat avatar in my aviary if you don't have the page number.
Okay, this cold weather has to stop soon! Mom was going to work in the garden today, but it's only low 40s outside right now, and really cloudy. If the weather changes, she'll have some time to work outdoors, but if not, I guess it's only laundry today.
That's fine with me, because I'll get to help out by dive bombing those towels to make sure they're fluffy and warm, and walking all over the socks to make sure they look good.
I hope you have a good day, with spring weather and lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Finny and flockily
Mikey D here, sorry I'm rather in a hurry. We're closin' in on the bird-napper who has taken Miss Falco. Havin' scanned the Ghost town building by buildin' we knew where our friend was being held. Standing together in the middle of the empty, dirt street we glimpsed a ratty hat peerin' out the window of the General Store. The 'tiel frothers, Pearl and Silver are worried about Falco. However, they know how feisty, clever and brave she is even if faced with a hawk-foe." He's the one that better be careful and not underestimate Falco just 'cause she's a hen!" they exclaim angrily.
"We need a plan, we're gonna bust in and save our friend." Mikey D says a frown on his brow.
"I Guess I showed you what for!" Falco grins and awaits her rescue. She knows her friends will be there soon to free her. The look on Hawk-eye's face tells her that he also knows they're comin' for him. He begins to pace nervously, making sure he stays well away from Falco. He won't that happen again.
Kiddo looks across the street at the store, and says "Falco is not a birdy to submit peacefully, and by the time we catch up with them I am thinkin' she will have that nasty ol' hawk tied up in knots!" This causes an loud laughter to erupt from the team as they study the situation.
Jesse smiles as he sees BB slip into the entrance of the mine. She crouches low and makes her way in the shadows to where Jesse is sittin' tied up like a Christmas gift. Pulling her knife, she quickly cuts the rope and the pair make their way out the door of the mine, and wind their way up the hillside to the boulder.
"My horse is tied yonder," BB points in the direction, " you go, I wanta wait here for our friends to return. They've bird-napped Miss Falco!"
Jesse's eyes become pinned with anger. He doesn't waste a moment to say good-bye, as he bolts towards the horse. "I must save Falco!"
Riding like the wind, Jesse urges Sundancer into a fast gallop towards the ghost Town. His mind is filled with thoughts of saving Falco from the clutches of that dirty, rotten Black Bart and his gang of misfits. Someone was gonna pay for this.
Mikey D and Sky take a dozen friends as they begin to move to burst in the front door, others go to take the back door. Inches from the door they freeze. The sound of gun fire ricochets through the town. "'DON"T YA MOVE A WING MUSCLE PARTNERS!" the growling voice of the tall gangly Gull stops everybirdie cold. " Now move away from that ther' door pronto"
"We got 'um boss, we got good" the wiry small bird says, clapping his wings happily in excitement.
Falco hears the commotion outside the door, and grins, "told ya they were goin' for me!"
"Hush now" Hawk-eye says, wavin' his wing in her direction as he presses his ear to the wall to hear better.

  Heya, Finney!
I bet your Mom chuckled at the "Rats!" I know my Mom would. Sounds like your Mom was distracted today--some days are like that. Mom can go to the store for something, and come home and realize she did not buy it. Ah well.

Mom ran out for groceries before the rain came, and hafta say she brought me back good stuff--matoes, peas and carrots. Yummy! And then she made me some rice, which we don't have a whole lot. Boy, was that good! She put some tumeric in it, and some chicken broth, and then some Tandoor spices (she really likes food from India). Do we say that I was beak first in my dish for a long time? Yeah.

  Hi Finnegan
HOWDY BC partners, Mikey D here as we ponder just how we're gonna save both Miss Falco and Jesse from the talons of some nasty outlaw member of Black Bart's gang. As we spread out to search every nook and cranny of this Old Ghost Town, Miss Falco is busy dealin' a nasty blow to her bird-napper.
"Oh, I am so angry about my friend Falco being birdnapped by that nasty ol' hawk. I can't wait to get my six-shooter pointed in his direction. We'll show him we don't take kindly to our friends being bushwhacked!" Kiddo shouts as he shoulders open the door to the blacksmith's shop beside the Livery stable. He and Angel-tiel bolt inside, guns at the ready. A group of birdies follow them inside as they check every inch of the ole' buildin' " nuthin' here, let's keep goin'"
Jesse can hear his bird-napper outside as they talk softly about what was takin' place back in town. He hears Falco's name mentioned and his anger grows. He tries to call out, but the cloth tied around his beak prevents him making a sound. He sits thinking for a moment then worried for Falco,
"I MUST get free and save Falco. That nasty, foul-smellin' Hawk's gonna find out who I am" with that Jesse begins to swarm and wiggle, working to loosen his bindings. He pulls and tugs and finally feels the ropes begin to give a little slack.
" Did that hurt?" Falco asks coyly, trying hard to find a grin, " a little ol' girl couldn't hurt someone as strong as you?" she giggles out loud, then seeing Hawk-eyes look, she stops with difficulty .
"You just be settin' there and behavin' Black Bart will be along right shortly to deal with ya and your band of goodie-two-shoes"
BB sneaks out the back door of the jail to do some lookin' around for Jesse on her own. "Maybe he is not even being held in this ghost town any more! There is a old mine shaft in the hills close by" so BB mounts Sundancer & heads out to do more scouting. Riding north, she works her way up towards the mine from the back end. Tying Sundancer to a bush she grabs her riffle from the scabbard and checks her six-shooter, then carefully makes her way to a large boulder just above the mine's entrance. There, she hankers down to listen carefully as she watches two of Black Bart's gang pacin' nervously back 'n' forth.
"We better leave Jesse here and go see to gettin' Bart outta jail." a small, wiry bird tells his partner, a gangly sea gull in ragged clothes. She sees his dirty hat nod, then both head towards the north east where their horses had been hitched. BB grins, "the horses are long gone towards the south west.' She chuckles softly to herself as she inches closer to the mine's entrance.
"If I were you I'd be lettin' me go mighty fast, my friends are headin' this way right now and it ain't gonna go well for you!" Falco tells her bird-napper. He peers out the dusty window, what he sees makes him cringe.

  Hi Finnegan
one more thing about spiders……... Spiders

You should always keep a spider
At least one in every room
Give them a little corner
With an offering of food

They'll spin away at night
And they'll hunt for you by day
Keeping your house clean of pest's
In their very special way

So do not go hard with insect spray
When bluebottle's and flies come your way
Remember the little spider's
Who hide themselves away

love Queen Boo Boo

  Hi Mr. Finnegan and flock
Howdy partners, no time to be talkin' not with Black Bart heading with his gang to the ole' jail. Pearl and Silver smile " What a greyt feeling to be taking Black Bart and his cronies to lockdown (where they deserve to be) but we cowbirdies still don't have Jesse back." BB is riding out of the mountains towards the ghost town when she sees Falco being jerked into the general store. by a scruffy-lookin' Hawk. She slaps Sundancer on the shoulder and encourage her into a gallop as she winds her way towards the Ghost Town. "What foul deeds are going on now" she thinks. BB rides around town to scout things out & sees a strange horse out back of the general store. On the other side of town BB sees Boss D & the wagon crews putten Black Bart's gang in the jail house. BB enters the jails back door and tells every birdie what see saw at the general store. "It seems we have 2 birds being held hostage now"
Everybirdie turns around alarmed at the sudden sound of BB's voice. The news that Miss Falco has been bird-napped shocks everybird silent. "Oh no, not Falco! We have to rescue her from that awful hawk. I don't like hawks at all, ' Kiddo exclaims
Mikey D looks from Kiddo to Sky, then to the others searching for an answer. " We must move fast. Jesse and Falco are somewhere in town. "BART!," he growls angrily, " where ya got Jesse stashed? and NO! funny talk or you and your cronies are gotten be sorry!"
Black Bart begins to laugh, " now ain't ya all in a real bind? If' 'n ya don't set us free, you ain't findin' either Jesse or this Miss Falco either!" his eerie laughter echos in the old jail house.
"We have your gang hog-tied outside in the wagons. You make us a trade, we'll let ya have your lice-bitten hooligans back!" Sky says, an anger fillin' his eyes like a wildfire. Cappy marches Bart and his hooligans into the jail cell and locks them up, sittin' down to keep watch so there is NO jail breaks! " Ya' ll set outta here to search, find Jesse and Falco. I'll make sure our guests are all comfy-cozy."
The team bolts from the jail, spreadin' out to search for their friends, now held captive. Raffikki turns to Cookie and Pookie, " I bet Falco can hold her own!" they laugh a small worried laugh, then fly down the street to search in the livery stable.
Falco sits quietly, eying her captor. " Ya know they're gonna find me, and you'll end up gettin' your tail-feathers trimmed?" she grins straighten up under his angry glare.
" Now, no sassin' from ya missie" he yells walkin' over to within inches of her beak.
"Bad move buster" she yells, as she stomps down on his toes with her cow-girl boots, bitin' him on the wing at the same time.
"OWWWW" Hawk-eye screams, hoppin' on one foot, holdin' his wing with the other."Now, you're gonna get it, no more carryin' on!"

  Hello Finn~
I hope you had a great day! Mom went and bought new tires today. She only had one bad one but since it's been a few years since she bought some she figured she would replace all of them right now. The guys who put them on they left one of the labels on a back tire so it makes a funny noise when you drive! Mom couldn't get it off either so it will just have to wear off!!
I hope Spring comes to your house!!

  Hi Mr. Finnegan and flock
Hello everybirdie, Mikey D , driving like the wind towards that ole' Ghost Town and a confrontation with Black Bart the notorious robbing, murderin', cantankerous villain of the Old West. With his gang members stowed away in our wagon beds, we drive into the deserted town ready to come beak to beak with our cunning enemy.
Pearl & Silver are wondering eggactly how the tunnel birds are gonna get outta their predicament when they see Cappy wink. Looking around for some way to get out of the predicament they found themselves, the Tunnel Birds realize their time might be up, when Cappy, their leader comes up with a thought to save them all and capture Black Bart. "Well has Black Bart ever encountered a mad Cockatoo Scream?" Cappy thinks and then lets out the loudest highest pitch scream he can manage. He rushes Black Bart with Drawing Blood on his mind. Everybirdy around that Cockatoo screaming drops everything to cover their ears and wince in pain, giving the Tunnel Birds time to react as they were all wearing earplugs.
The Tunnel Birds rush Bart and his birds, grabbing their dropped firearms. Cappy glares at Black Bart, his gun pointed at the leader of the robbin' gangsters." Move i, there's an old cell over in the Sheriff's Office that has your name on it. You can stay there until Mikey D and the others decide what to do with you." Cappy points to the door with his gun barrel. Bart turns signaling his birds to follow him to the jail house. Moving as one for the door, Falco stands aside to let the group pass, then joining the others she follows along towards the jailhouse.
No one has seen Jesse yet, but once Bart and his gang were under lock they'd search for him and set him free. Falco stops as she sees Mikey D and the wagons rushing along the dusty, bumpy road, then out of no where a wing covers her eyes and beak, stopping her from screaming for help. The dark shadow drags her into the old General Store before letting her go. With gun pointing towards her, she turns to see her captor. A scruffy Hawk squints beady blacken eyes at her. His torn jacket covering dusty clothes, and the smell of him makes Falco's nose sting.
"WELL now Missie, whata we here?" the birdknapper says, " bet Mikey D and the others gonna give us what we want to save ya!"
Falco glares angrily, and straightens her clothes out, " How dare you grab me, you rotten dirt-bag"
"Now, now that ain't no way to be behavin' missie" the birdnapper taunts. " you just set right yonder, and keep quiet like, hear me?"
Mikey D pulls to a stop at the saloon, as the others stop and rush for the doors of the stores and hotel to search for hide-a ways. No one realized with all the action that Falco was missing.
"Where's Jesse?"

  Hi Finnegan
Every day, animals are put into critical danger when their natural habitats are jeopardized by human activity. Together, we can protect the one earth we all rely on.

I am the Earth
And the Earth is me.
Each blade of grass,
Each honey tree,
Each bit of mud,
And stick and stone
Is blood and muscle,
Skin and bone.

And just as I
Need every bit
Of me to make
My body fit,
So Earth needs
Grass and stone and tree
And things that grow here
Naturally.

That’s why we
Celebrate this day.
That’s why across
The world we say:
As long as life,
As dear, as free,
I am the Earth
And the Earth is me. ?
HAPPY EARTH DAY
love Queen Boo Boo

Great hat, are you in the contest? We are! That sounds like a cool game. I usually dance around some then give kisses.
Happy Earth Day, do something nice for your mother (earth) today.
Mom had a tour with second graders today. As you might know, that's one of her least favorite ages, but this group was fantastic! They knew a little already and were eager to learn all they could about dinosaurs. Mom tells all her groups about some characteristics at the beginning of the tour, then as the tour goes on, she asks questions in front of certain dinos. Examples are big body, little head = herbivore, or teeth can regrow. This group nailed all of them! That's unusual for kids that young. Anyway mom had fun and at the end, one of the teachers told her that she's the best docent they ever had. This teacher has been doing this tour for several years now, so she really liked what she heard today.
Tomorrow is another tour day, so we'll be later getting online again. It was raining cats and dogs this morning. At least that's what mom said, but all I saw were raindrops. Polly didn't want to walk, and Daisy didn't want to stay out long, so maybe they will get a good walk later today. I hope you are having a good spring day, it feels like fall here, with temps in the mid 40s. Get lots of cuddles and scritches while you can! Hugs, Falco

  Hello Finnegan~
I hope your day was just wonderful! We didn't get a whole lot done but that's okay. Mom slept this afternoon and really didn't want to get up! We got some dinner and now I finally have time to get some blogs done.
Mom is off tonight and tomorrow night and wants to get some more cleaning done. She has to figure out when she'll have time to go to the tire place and get 2 new tires.
The rain came back today so it feel more normal up here. The weather channel put out a map for their predictions of summer weather and it looks like we are going to have the hottest temps in the country. Now that is strange! It happens sometimes. Mom cleaned out the portable A/C and is going to get black out drapes for Ian and Jennifer's rooms. They get the afternoon sun and it does get hot in there. When it gets too hot, we all stay in the living room with the A/C. I just hope the heat doesn't last for a long time. In the past it has only been a few weeks!
Have a fabulous night! Leaving a vote and a big hug! I just love your derby picture!! I am not sure I will ever get one done!!

I saw your derby hat ... very cool!
If mom asks for a kiss, I make the kissy sound. But if she just kisses my beak, I kiss back.
We got our snow early morning and then rain. Looks like snow again from 11pm to 6am ... oh joy! Then the light rain will be back and a balmy 34 degrees on Wednesday. I'm so ready to fly south! I'll trade in my hot chocolate for a fruity drink with an umbrella in it!

  Hi Mr. Finnegan and flock
Howdy friends, Mikey d here, at Widow's Creek. It seems we've found us a peck of troubles with Black Bart and his gang of hooligans. All the cowbirds are on claw-tips waiting for the signal. When it happens they are all poised for action. Kiddo's fierceness and bravery gives them all a needed boost of courage as Badact ducks a bullet inches above his head. It was all the incentive the BC team needed, as they draw down on Black Bart's gang right there in the openin' at Widow's Creek.
With the echoing boom of Sky's double barrel shot gun, all chaos breaks loss under the saloon in that ole' Ghost Town. Cappy signals his Tunnel Birds who grab the remaining floor boards in their beaks and talons and with one mighty pull splinter them into kindling. Cookie, thinkin' like Kiddo
quotes a Dirty Harry line; " OK punk,Go ahead-Make my day!" The birds bust through the opening guns on the ready to come beak to beak with Black Bart himself, and a group of his dirty-birdie bandits.
"FREEZE!" Cappy yells as he points his gun at Bart, the others cover the remaining gang-members.
At Widow's Creek things are pretty busy. The bullets begin to fly from all directions as good birds, and gang-birds dive for cover. "The action is heatin' up!!!!!" BB is sitten tall on Sundancer's back over seein' the action at Widows Creek & the ghost town saloon. She is ready to ride to either spot to cover there if need be."This is better then cable TV." she yells as the action continues. Sky stands up and takes a fast shot at Badact and two of his cronies.
"Drop 'em, and wings up, or next shot won't miss," Sky fires so close it ruffles Badacts feathers.
"Ok, Ok, enough, it ain't worth it if Black Bart is gonna rob us of our share boyz" Badact drops his gun and throws his wings over his head.
Polly runs in and grabs his gun, as SweetPepper scoops up the other two guns from his friends standin' wings above their ratty heads. Kiddo takes careful aim at one of the other robbers, nicking his wing feathers, makin' him drop his weapon as he grabs his sore wing and begins to hoot and holler jumpin around like a rabbit. The other villains yell out " HOLD YA FIRE!" they come out from hiding places, wings up.
Mikey D calls out to his friends," grab some rope, lets tie these varmints up, we're headin' to town to make a delivery to Bart! " The team quickly secure the ropes and have the bandits hog-tied and loaded on the wagon beds, under the watchful eye of the gun-birds. They move to their teams like lightening and at a fast trot make dust as they move to the aid of their friends in the Ghost Town. BB clicks to Sundancer and moves off at a gallop, making a direct run for the action in town.
The Tunnel Birds have gotten themselves into a fix. They'd forgotten about the back door to the saloon. As they burst in and thought they had Bart covered they too were under cover; the cover of six gun barrels. " I think we got us a BIG PROBLEM!" Pearl whispers to Cappy.
see ya tomorrow,

Just a cold and rainy day today, the same on Tuesday with snow in the morning. And, we'll have snow on Wednesday. I guess those couple of days were spring and summer. I think I'm going to hibernate! Pass the hot chocolate please!

  Hi finnegan
one day last year i kept screaming and screaming and mom kept checking on me and couldn't find anything wrong. my cage is right beside the sliding glass doors and mom thought maybe i had seen a hawk outside so she looked out the window and saw the big black snake trying to figure out how to open the screen door and come inside and eat me. mom grabbed her camera and went outside to take the picture and afterwards used a branch to get the snake off of the screen. she followed it as it slithered away and it went under the house.

love Queen Boo Boo

  Hi ya Fin~
I hope you are having a wonderful day too! Mom just got off the phone with dad and he is back in Phoenix. He has a load to Texas but his truck broke so they sent him back to the main terminal in Phoenix. He has a new truck now but has to move all the stuff from the old one to the new one. That is going to take some serious time because dad has lots and lots in that truck! It is near 100 there so mom told him to get lots of water and do it slowly!hehehehehe He is not use to that kind of heat anymore!! 80 is considered a heat wave up here!!!
Enjoy your day!

  Hi Finnegan
That's why mom won't take any other birds, she's got enough cages and there's only so much time in a day to spend with us already. The good news is that Millie and Lily, the doves, don't really require human interactions.
Mom has been a bit dizzy and nauseous since last night, so when she left the center today she went to the store and got some ginger ale to help her settle the stomach. Hope that takes care of the dizziness too. Of course, she also bought a new cucumber, pepper, yam, and berries for us while she was there.
When she got to the center today she found out she was doing (what else?) the RVS room. But when Bree saw her, she suggested that mom just sit in there and feed bats. Mom fed all 7 of them and cleaned their cages, but it took over 2 hours. While she was working, one of the staff came in and told her not to clean the big cages, just to finish the bats and leave. Mom was happy to oblige. She thought she'd get some yard things done today, but it was raining when she left the supermarket, so yard work is probably out of the question.
I hope you are having a beautiful spring day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Peppino, Divo & Falco.

SHHHHHHHH!, Mikey D here at Widow's Creek. The place looks abandoned, not a bird in sight. Suddenly, outta the brush Black Bart's mite-infected side-kicks appear, guns poised at the ready. Mikey D takes a deep breath, and steps down from the lazy-board, and nods to the other drivers to follow suit. Cautiously, every nerve on the ready, the BC team moves to join the trail Boss.
"Far enough, now back off from them there wagons" a surly lookin' Raven orders, his six-shooter aimed at Mikey D. " fella's you take a gander and make sure them wagons have the treasure Bart wants."
Cappy and the tunnel birds have broken through the dirt and have slowly pried on the saloon floor until the boards are loose. Cappy is on high alert waiting for the signal. The tunnel birds are all ready to make their move and just wait in silence until Cappy hears the signal to burst through the floor and save Jesse.
"Wow, we tunnel birds did quick work." Pearl whispers to Silver waiting in the darkness," All the cowbirdies are eggcited and scared but more than prepared to do their assigned duties to carry out the rescue of Jesse as soon as the Trail Boss gives the order. They listen for the sound of Sky's double-barrel shot gun. Cookie shakes dust and dirt from his feathers after digging and stands waiting in silence. Dixie and Kallie along with Peepers and Celine all worked hard to move that dirt out from the tunnel they were building to connect to the saloon.They can't wait to save Jesse from Black Bart's clutches.
Mikey D, looks at the gang of thieves, then at the wagons. " Ok, you got everything ya wanted, now let my friends walk outta here peaceful-like"
"NO, Bart ordered us to take ya all hostage and bring you all back to town. You, come with me" he points at Pookie, one of the drivers, we're gonna go check out the loot. If there's any funny-business he's gonna get it. Hear me?" he growls angrily. Mikey D shakes his head, and waits not sayin' a word. He over-hears one of the bandits call the surly Raven, "Badact".
"WAIT! Badact ya sure you really wanta hand over all this treasure to Black Bart? You all kno' he ain't gonna share it with ya!" this gets the bandit-birds grumblin' among themselves. The plan is working. If they can convince these scoundrels that Black Bart is goin' to take everything they just might get them to turn against their leader.
Badact grabs Pookie by the shirt-collar and marches him to the sixth wagon, stoppin' to think for a moment, he then reaches his wing out to pull open the back of the canopy. He stops dead in his tracks as Kiddo jumps up, his gun leveled at Badact's head. The action gives everyone of the BC team time to dive for cover. Kiddo shoots over Badacts head, startling him, " feelin' lucky?" Kiddo yells angrily. Sky jumps out of his wagon bed, shooting his gun into the air, the double barrel echoing clear to the Ghost Town, signaling the Tunnel Birds into action. All chaos breaks loss

  Hi Finnegan
Howdy, Mikey D here, at the camp readying to head into Widow's Creek. Cappy the tunnel-bird champ and his crew are already heading towards the Ghost Town, digging their tunnel quickly under Black Bart's beak, and moving in to place to rescue Jesse from their felonious grasps.
Ms BB rides back quietly into camp, unseen by the busy birds, it isn't until she speaks they realize she is there, " the tunnel birds are gettin' near the saloon! I seen a big pile of dirt outside of camp. Black Bart still has not shown himself. Some of his gang are still at Widows Creek waiting for the surprise you have planned for them. The group have got the horses away unnoticed and should have them here in the remuda any minute."
"It's time everyone!" Mikey D says loudly enough to be heard by all, "OK drivers, carporals act real casual-like, and don't let them know anythings up! Gun-birds, stay safe, wait for the signal, " Where's that feather-plucked rat?" before you come out shootin' and may God be with us!"
"The horses are stashed safely among the herd of cattle and mules, " Peppino reports to the others.
"Everybirdie knows the part they must play to successfully rescue Jesse and keep us and our cargo safe. Black Bart will regret messing with us again." Silver exclaims, as he and Pepper check their weapons.Pookie says "I'm all ready lets start heading out. I've got my rifle along with a night vision scope attached. I never leave home without it." he climbs up into the wagon. Peepers,Celine and the rest of the Dixie flock are all eager to help dig and be tunnel birds!They all grab a shovel to show Mikey D just how strong and fast they can be! Cappy directs the work, as dirt flies quickly out of the tunnel. Kaji takes a quick look of the work and reports back to the others that the tunnel is nearly finished.
"Let's move'em out!" Mikey D calls as he snaps the reins of his team and pulls them out onto the rough, rutted road. Kiddo spins around and draws his gun to show he is ready for Black Bart before jumping up onto the back of one of the empty wagons, joining the others hidden away in the beds of the Schooners. They move along at a slow walk, no birdie eager for what is to come. In the distance Mikey D spies Widow's Creek and can just make out a small figure of a bird watchin' them.
The Tunnel completed, Cappy waits for a few minutes to regroup his team before them head inside to make their way towards the saloon. They check their guns, and follow into the darkness. They wait to hear the signal shot from Sky at the Widow Creek. Then they will bust through the final inches of dirt and bust into the back of the saloon to save Jesse. Falco and Chyna take a deep breath as they wait. Very bird's nerves are on edge, ready to swing into action......
Mikey D holds up his wing, as they pull carefully into the opening at Widow's Creek..
see ya tomorrow, MIKEY D

CONCLUSION ON SPIDERS
Cellar spiders which have super long legs like daddy long legs (which are not spiders) love to eat ants. if you have those tiny tiny little ants running around in your house cellar spiders will eat all of them.
3. Antarctica is the only continent in the world where you will absolutely not find a spider. There are creatures who live there like whales and penguins, but people and spiders stay away from the Antarctica lifestyle. because arthropods like to keep their butts warm, just like humans do.
4. Spiders possess shyness as a personality trait just like people .Spiders, even large ones like tarantulas, are docile in nature. Most spiders are inherently shy critters. They get squished more often than they actually bite humans. Spiders will defend themselves in rare cases, but these buggies mostly get scared and hide in the presence of danger.Because of their shyness they ALMOST NEVER seek out humans to bite. When spiders and humans come in contact, it is usually when they are looking for warmth or just happen to be seeking out food and we bump into each other.
5. Although we have all the eyes that we need, both spiders and humans rely on our other senses.You would think having eight eyes would be all the eyes that you need to see perfectly, but for most spiders that is not the case. Nearly all spiders have eight simple eyes, but having six more peepers than us, doesn’t make their vision any more superior since most arachnids have poor eyesight. On average, over six out of 10 people need to wear glasses or contact lenses, making our visual impairments almost identical to that of spiders. Instead, both spiders and people depend on our other senses, like sound, taste and touch, to help us survive. Nobody’s perfect; not people with two eyes nor arthropods with a whopping eight.

it is a pain to remove all those webs, mainly because they gather so much dust but consider letting spiders be or releasing them back outside the next time you see arachnid amigos in your home. plus i find them quite tasty

WELL HOWDYYYY!, Mikey D finally back online. WOW, no net was sure tough. Didn't know how we'd make it much longer. Thankfully we can just pick on up were we left off. We gathered together to plan our rescue of Jesse and a greetin' for Black Bart he'd not soon forget. Lizzie had rustled up a great meal, but nobirdie seem too hungry with so much about to take place. With the wagons unloaded, and Apache, Bon Bon. Angel and Willie standin' guard we set about makin' plans on how to carry out our mission.
" I have scouted out Widow's Creek." Ms BB explained, " There is 1 road through the creek with lots of cover to hide in. That's bad for us cause Black Bart has his gang hid in it. I seen the movements they made back and forth to their horses. " BB paused for emphases "The cover is good for us cause we can sneak up & get the drop on them. Maybe a few birds can sneak in & lead their horses away.?"
"Now, that sounds like a workable idea, " Zippy says eager to get goin' and save Jesse. "I volunteer to go!"
"I will too" Parker adds. " Me too!" Flitzer offers.
"OK, you be careful. Take their horses back around the creek, and into our remuda for safe keepin. But be careful." Mikey D says, patting them each on the shoulder. He knows he's picked the best birds to do that job. Angel-tiel, Pepper and Peppino join the group as they ride out of camp to carry out their mission. Angel & Pepper are happy to help the birdies execute the "surprise" for Black Bart!
"We need to get these wagons hitched and ready." Sky adds looking at Mikey D for direction. "I'll be honored to be in the wagon as I'm a good shot." Pookie steps forward eager to do his share to help. Cookie and Spot get their guns ready, they know the team will out smart that rotten Black Bart and his gang.
"We're ready to do whatever part we need to help rescue Jesse and keep everybirdie, cargo, etc. safe." Pearl and Silver check their weapons and smiling, join the volunteers climbing into the now empty wagons.
Cappy steps up to help Mikey D and Sky lead the attack. "I'm very proficient with a sling shot lol. " he begins to pick out shooters to be in his wagon. Kiddo re-loads and speaks up "I have my six shooter loaded and ready to go!" he hops into the wagon bed ready to fight. Cappy asks "has anybirdie thought of digging a tunnel into the town? ... Cappy explains he is very adept at digging escape tunnels .
"NOW, that's a plan" Mikey D says grinning widely, We need tunnel birds quick! Any volunteers? Wings go up all over camp. "Cappy, you take all the tunnel-birds you need and head into town. Tunnel your way carefully towards the saloon. "Jesse!, we'll be there soon!"
see ya tomorrow, MIKEY D
