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..

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

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??.

How Do Birds Survive Winter Storms?
It’s cold out.. where do birds go for protection during severe weather such as blizzards, hurricanes, and tornadoes?

Many birds have an amazing ability to find refuge from storms and use a variety of ways to cope, depending on the species and the bird’s natural habitat.Some find protection against the cold and storms by communal roosting, often in a bird house. This shares warmth, and keeps the birds out of the wind, rain and snow. cavity nesters, such as chickadees, titmice and woodpeckers, also seek out old nesting sites in dead trees or bird houses in which to roost or find protection during a storm. Nuthatches, which sometimes nest behind a loose piece of tree bark, may seek the same kind of shelter against the cold.Flocks of Rosy finches often roost in an outcropping of rock where they can get out of the cold wind.Bobwhite make a circle of the covey, huddled side-by-side, with head facing out. This allows them to share body heat, while being ready to escape in all directions, should they be attacked.Ruffed grouse take a different tactic. They dive into a snow bank, and may stay there for several days until the storm passes. The Ruffed grouse has the largest range of any grouse species in North America and winter hikers have been surprised by a startled grouse bursting from the snow at their feet.Many other birds retreat to dense, evergreen thickets where they are protected from the elements for the duration of the storm.

Keep thinking spring! Daylight savings time starts this weekend, and spring is only 15 days away.
Meanwhile we had more snow overnight, about 4 to 6 inches. Mom checked this morning and both her museum tours were cancelled. That's good because it's now after 11, and the plow/salt truck just went up our street. When mom walked the dogs, it wasn't done yet and the streets were a bit slippery. The good news is that mom waited to walk the dogs, and a lovely thing happened. Apparently school was cancelled here, and there were 3 teens with snow shovels walking around the corner. She pointed out the house, and by the time she got back with the dogs, the driveway and front walk had been done. Mom is always happy to pay someone to do that for her. They also salted and took the recycle can to the edge of the driveway. They were going to take the trash out, but mom told them to leave that can as she wasn't done loading it yet. It looks like a good day to stay home and read today.
Thanks to Sweetpepper and Kacey for updating us on Nana's progress. Mom hasn't called Aunt Rose for a couple of days. I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

We do understand about spending time on the puter and other things are going on....

Mom and I are fine, but she has work to do tonight--looks like this will be a regular thing every 3-4 weeks as she has to write acceptance criteria for the project work that is being done. So of course it runs into my blogging time...but I will forgive her. She says she will take the time back on another day if she can.

Sorry for the short notes but you know how it goes when the puter is being used for work and not fun.

That is nice your mom and flock get company to watch once in a while and come stay with you. So this one that is coming to stay a while can whistle good eh? Do you pick it up too? I whistle like Chi chi did and mom used to think Chi chi whistled alot but it was just me and her together LOL
Mom says I have been like a Velcro fid lately and am always on or with her it seems. Well you know how that goes with the hormones so thinking mom is my girlfriend. Tonight when I went in with mom while she took her bath I went to fly up on the cabinet like I do and sit there and then get on the shower rod. Well I flew to the mirror instead and mom said I was hanging like a bat. She was out of the tub so she helped me off there. I did end up on the shower rod though and hung out there for a while. it’s a neat place and up really high too! “Roses are red, Violets are blue, Your house is blessed because a fid lives with you.” leaving a vote for you.~~your friend forever, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

HAPPY HUMDAY

The Smith’s Longspur May Be Nature’s Champion Lover
Are you the type that has an insatiable appetite for lusty affairs?
Do you seek the same qualities in a partner?
Then you’ll probably enjoy the story of the Smith’s Longspur. This bird’s 70’s swinging style is enough to make even Hugh Hefner blush.

Arctic Summers, Midwest Winters
Small like a sparrow, the Smith’s Longspur spends its summers in Alaska and Canada and its winters in the Midwest and the South, often congregating in open fields.In terms of range, then, it’s a lot like some other species. What sets the Smith’s Longspur apart is its astonishing libido.

An Insatiable Appetite For Love
At the peak of the spring mating season, the typical Smith’s Longspur copulates more than 350 times a week. The females solicit these encounters, and the males cooperate roughly half the time.Otherwise the creatures are resting and refueling—for their fall migration or just to maintain their busy love lives!

As hard as it may be to believe given the cold affecting much of the country, but spring is only 16 days away

  Hi Finnegan
today is World Wildlife Day—a day to celebrate the amazing variety of animals with which we share the planet and a special day to raise awareness of the plight of wildlife.

The United Nations has designated March 3 as World Wildlife Day, described by the UN as “an opportunity to celebrate the many beautiful and varied forms of wild fauna and flora and to raise awareness of the multitude of benefits that conservation provides to people. At the same time, the Day reminds us of the urgent need to step up the fight against wildlife crime, which has wide-ranging economic, environmental and social impacts and obstacles faced by those who wish to conserve populations of endangered species and their habitats all over the world.

Wildlife crime is a key issue when it comes to the conservation of increasingly dwindling environmental resources shared by humans, plants and animals. Without the help of citizens all over the globe, wildlife crime will remain a threat to our world and all who share it. Thousands of species are decreasing at alarming rates as ruthless profiteers prey on the most vulnerable populations around the world.The illegal wildlife trade is among the worst and most lucrative transnational crimes, after drugs, arms, and human trafficking. Global commercialization of wild animals and plants is a multi-billion dollar industry that results in extreme animal cruelty and severe population declines.

On World Wildlife Day, we ask that you reflect on how wildlife crime is endangering our planet, and what you can do to help.

Today, on World Wildlife Day, speak out loudly for wildlife—because they can't speak out for themselves!

  Hi Finnegan
since we are still getting winter advisory warnings, more snow and temps still dropping down to the low 10s i thought i would talk about chickadees those cute little black and white balls of fluff we see flying around outside in this weather. Chickadees Are Cold Weather Machines

Though any bird that survives winter in the North amazes those of us that depend on furnaces and warm blankets, the black-capped chickadee may be the most incredible of all winter survivors. although none can compare to the emperor penguin thats for sure.

“Black-capped Chickadees have a wonderful assortment of adaptations for the winter. “Carefully hidden food items, dense winter coats, specially selected winter roost cavities, and perhaps most remarkable of all, the ability to go into nightly hypothermia, thus conserving large amounts of energy, greatly increases the chances of survival,” The ability to go into regulated hypothermia actually lowers the chickadee’s body temperature in a controlled manner, down to about 12 or 15 degrees (F.) below their normal daytime temperature of 108 degrees (F.). This remarkable adaptation allows the bird to conserve almost 25 percent of its hourly metabolic expenditure when the outside temperature is at freezing. The lower the outside temperature, the more energy conserved

“Chickadees are not the suburban wimps that some people think they are as every winter morning chickadees replace the fat they used overnight and struggle against starvation and stinging cold. even though they are tough survivors that live close to the edge of life i still find myself partial to Bue Jays as i spot their bright blue color against the white snow and hear them calling out to me every morning. at least i like to think they are calling out to me.

  HI FINNEGAN
March has come in like a lion in our neck of the woods and its snowing snowing, snowing. i would like to start out my campaign by talking about HUMAN POOP. More than 2.5 billion people in the developing world lack access to toilets, and a child dies every 15 seconds from diarrhea, usually the result of food or water becoming contaminated by human waste. Each year, 200 million tons of the world’s poop also goes completely untreated, ending up directly in lakes, rivers, and oceans.

in Kenya, , $324 million is lost every year due to sickness and missed work hours caused by poor sanitation. Nonprofits and businesses have experimented with what to do with human waste. Haiti is famous for distributing “composting toilets” that drastically lower the risk of contracting diseases. by collecting the poop from toilets, treating it, and selling it as fertilizer.

in Kenya Instead of composting the waste to grow food, it’s turning it into energy to cook it by distributing toilets to local families, emptying them each month, and turning the poop into briquettes. After the waste is collected from toilets around town, it’s put it in a solar concentrator that uses mirrors to heat the waste to temperatures that have been shown by the Centers for Disease Control to kill pathogens, making it safe for reuse.

Across Africa and around the world, hundreds of millions of people cook with wood and charcoal. Most charcoal comes from trees that are slowly cooked down in huge earthen ovens, removing the moisture without oxidizing the wood so that it becomes a more efficient source of heat per volume. But the process consumes a lot of trees—four tons of trees produce just one ton of charcoal, according to the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization—and with populations on the continent rising exponentially, deforestation is only increasting. Already, forest cover in Kenya has fallen to just 2 percent, and the price of charcoal is rising.

Moreover, smoke from burning charcoal indoors can be hazardous 6 percent of global diseases and 7 percent of disease-related deaths are caused by respiratory infections. poop briquettes contain one-third less charcoal than normal ones. For now the briquettes being given away for testing purposes.“When you look at the chemical composition of poop, it’s 90 percent organic matter and 40 percent carbon. So not only is there a high demand for fuel, but poop from a chemical composition standpoint already has a great composition to be turned into fuel,” he said.one major obstacle is the “ick” factor. reservations tend to disappear as soon as they try out the odorless briquettes for themselves. the proof is in the smell—or rather, lack thereof. They see it’s not smelling, it’s cooking good.”

Congratulations to Flitzer, he makes a good looking king. Please remember to vote for Booboo this month, it will be another BC first to have a rare Bali Blue mynah in the castle next month, hahaha.
Here's March, coming in like a lion! We are getting a ton of snow today. Well, not really, but it's going to snow pretty much all day long. They are predicting 5" but if it keeps up it will be more. When mom walked the dogs, it was already about 4 inches deep, and, being Sunday, the plow hasn't hit the street yet. Mom may call off work at the museum if we don't hear that truck soon. She still has to shovel the driveway, too.
The news about the center is that it may take 4 to 6 weeks for the gas lines to be fixed. There will be no heat, other than space heaters, in the building, and no hot water. I guess the good news is that it is an electric dryer, so the laundry can still be done. They just fixed the huge washer, so laundry problems should go away this week.
Mom may work on her taxes today, especially if she doesn't go to work. Her one Coursera course finishes this week, the other 2 will still go on, so her evenings are pretty much occupied. I hope you are having a good day, staying warm, and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

back in the fall mom found a small sparrow that had somehow gotten its leg tanged in a bird house filled with our doggies hair mom clips every spring for the birds making nests. there was another sparrow tangled in it also and mom thinks it was trying to help the other one that was dangling by its leg. mom had a heck of a time getting the sparrows leg out and felt the sparrow probably broke it by struggling so much. once she untangled the one sparrows leg the other sparrow became free also and they both quickly flew away before mom could check for any broken legs. today dad had the doggie outside to do her business and called for mom to come out because there was a little bird sitting on the driveway. somehow mom recognized this sparrow as the one dangling by its leg months ago from the bird house. it sat there for a few minutes and looked at mom and then it hobbled away and then flew to a nearby tree. mom knows its leg has never healed but at least it looked in good shape considering its bad leg.

my fister Boo Boo, the rare blue bali mynah will be running for BOTM starting tomorrow and would greatly appreciate your votes

You did it! I am vote number 3002! Was here last night but did not leave a note--Mom was falling asleep at the keyboard! So happy you made it!!

It was bright and sunny--sure made it seem like it was warmer than it was. I thought for sure I would be going with Mom to the store. She told me it was way too cold out there, even if it was sunny. She did bring me back some peas and carrots and fresh papaya and raspberrries and grapes. So I will forgive her. Oh, yeah, and samosa's from Trader Joe's. I had the meat ones and did not like them that much, so Mom picked up the veggie ones. Oh yeah! Now that is what I call a samosa!! Mmmm!

We are supposed to have some light snow tonight. Mom took the car in to be washed today too. She says it looks much better. That grey film of salt and road yuck is all gone. And boy were there a ton of folks at the car wash! Anyway, Tuesday is the big winter storm day, so you know Mom is staying at home with me. They are saying 6 inches after rain and sleet. Not driving weather. Nothing like the folks out east got, thank heavens.

That is good you got your 3000 vote and you know you can stop in and visit with me any time you have time or just want to chat.
Mom has been knitting a hat that her daughter in law told her about that she is making too. Well mom looked at it today and about 4 rows down mom pearled where she should of knitted. She thought about leaving the mistake there and then decided she would rip it out to that part and try to put the stitches back on and it worked! Mom is not good at knitting but sat at the table and took her time and even got the right number of stitches back on the needles so she was pretty excited about that. I bet winter will be over before this project is done though LOL “Winter is on my head, but eternal spring is in my heart.” Leaving a vote for you my friend…hugs from Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Nothing to do but complain about the weather! It was -24 this morning. Sunday thru Wednesday we will have a warm up in the 20's. Get out your flip flops and umbrella drink. Then Thursday, we will be back in the deep freeze again. I guess we broke some record about being under -20 for so many days in a row. This record I wasn't trying to break! For now, pass the hot chocolate!

  Hi Finnegan
Pimer slides in on the vote button before Makana gets there. YES! I DID IT!! 2982! *Pimer jumps up and down. Makana dusts herself off and glares at her frother thinking, 'I'm gonna get you soon. real soon.'* Well, Pimer, we better get going. Don't want to get in a snow storm.
Right! See you later Finnegan.

Tonight we'll be down to -22 degrees. Dad has the generator ready to go ... just in case! I think we will see some sun the next few days, hope so. Hurry SPRING!
