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

9 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??.

We had 5 hours of nasty t-storms and tons of rain. A lot of flooding in our county but we are fine. I think the plants all loved it. Bunni came over after the hard rain. It still sprinkled on him a little bit. Well, the pool is very full now. It was a little low with all the 90 degrees we had. Hope your day was good.

Today the parronts were busy working around the house. I told mom that I think I had a sprained toe and couldn't help. So, I got to rest and play all day. I did shout some instructions to them as I knew they needed direction. The weather people say we might get a storm tomorrow, we'll see as it's been very dry here. Have a greyt night.

  Hi Finnegan,
I want to thank you for your votes for me in the quest to get my BOTM Badge.

It's just not fair as I had worked so hard through out the whole month campaigning. Only to find out that the BC was not fixing the site.

Perhaps with every birdies help me and the others like Kacey and Mikey will get our recognition like we should have.

A big Mahalo to everyone for their love and support. The things we birdies hafta do to get things done.

Here's a vote for you as well my sweet friend.

Love,

Laka

Today was pretty boring ... laundry day. I faked being so tired that I had to rest. When mom wasn't looking, I was busy chewing up a wood toy. After she was finished, I had all the energy of a sugar buzz .... hehehe. Yes, I was chatty and playful and charming of course. Tomorrow, mom wants to paint her closet ... I feel a relapse coming on ....

  Hi Finnegan!
Thank you for stopping by to vote for me! We have been making bird toys all month. If you guys want all the previous toy instructions, my mom could email them to you!

Hi Everybirdie! Tonight is the last night! I am so excited! Mom was finally able to pick up all of the bird toy parts that have been scattered around her room for the past month. She was happy about that! Haha! Tonight we are making a toy that looks like bird. You will need,

- Cardboard
- Coffee filters
- Finger traps
- Beads
- Little bird toy trinket pieces
- Safe stringing material
- OPTIONAL white paper

Take a large piece of cardboard and cut out a nice sized bird head and body. Once you have the body cut out, take a piece of string and knot the bottom, then poke a hole in sorta in the middle of your cutouts body, but a little lower. String your string through the hole, with the knot being on the back side. Take some coffee filters, and cut the sides into strips and poke holes in the middles. String those on like you would for a puff, one facing down, one facing up, and so on, until it is a nice sized puff on the body. String on a bead and knot it. Now poke a hole in the middle of the cutout near the bottom. Take a piece of string and knot them bottom, then string it through the hole with the knot on the front side (you won't see it, it will be under the puff). Take three finger traps, and string those on. Then string on a bead and knot it tight. Once they are tied, you can stick them out in different directions like a tail. For the head, it will be different for everyone depending on what kind of bird you want it to look like. We did a Green Cheek Conure. If you want an eye ring, cut out a small oval and poke a hole in the middle. Then to attach the eye, poke a hole on the cutout where you want it to be, take a piece of string and tie a knot at the bottom, string it through, and then string on the paper, and then a dark bead. Then knot it. To put on markings, you will do the same thing with the holes and string. Just add them (beads and random toy pieces) however you'd like in what ever colors you want. To make it so that you can hang it, you can make a loop, make a small hole in the cutouts head, and then string the loop through. Or, you can tie a bagel to a piece of string, then make a small hole in the cutout under the puff and string it through the hole with the bagel on the back side. Then knot it. You can then attach it by sticking the bagel through the cage bars and turning it the opposite way so that it stays.

I will post a picture of both the front and back sides of this toy in my gallery.

Thank you SO much for voting for me!

Hugs,
Grey Bird

Not much going on here. It was another sunny day of 91 and still no rain. I was busy chewing up some wood toys and I'm proud of the artistic design on the floor. It looks greyt to me.
Mom was outside watering the plants and someone came up to her ... it was Bunni. He just watched her and walked along with her for a while. I guess I should tell him that I do the supervising around here, it's my job.

Today was another sunny and warm day in the upper 80's. We are still waiting for rain.
Today we had a new visitor. Bunni came with a bunny friend right up to our front screen door this morning. But, they didn't leave any Easter eggs or treats. I guess that's over with. They are very friendly.

I hope you enjoy all the family time, sounds like fun!
Today is my vet appointment, I hope she says I'm healing and maybe can take off the collar. If not, maybe next time. I have 2 new feathers that mom can see on my chest, but the rest is still bald. Anyone know how long it takes?
Mom had 2 tours this morning with first grades. They all wanted dinosaurs and friends, and both groups had booked a pterosaur time after their tour, so mom knows they will have a great time. One of the little guys kept trying to correct mom when she said pterosaur! He kept saying pterodactyl, so she finally told him that pterodactyl names one animal in the group, but pterosaur is the name for the whole group. He was very cute!
I hope your weather is better than ours today. It's 62 and cloudy, looks like rain any second. We are hoping the rain doesn't come until mom is back from the vet's office. I hope that you are getting lots of attention, cuddles and scritches today. Hugs, Falco

  Heya, Finnegan!
So good to hear from ya! We think about you lots, and are saying prayers and sending your Mom good thoughts--we know how busy she is with the bird shows, and trying to get things fixed or packed! I know you are gonna enjoy the visits from the flockily, too!

Today it got to a high of around 48, if that. Very damp and the wind was not horrible, but it made it feel worse. It is 42, but feels like 36. No sun to speak of. Thursday we are not even gonna hit 40. Rain, too.

Mom went for her dental appt. today and had her cleaning. The tooth that has a growing white spot on the front of it will be taken care of on Monday along with two tiny spots on another tooth. Insurance should cover 50% of the cost, so Mom is happy. Mom says that she is just relieved that nothing else was found!

She ran to Trader Joe's today for some stuff and managed to get out of there under $26. And ran to pick up some other stuff at Metro Mart (fresh papaya! apricots--the first of this year! and an ear of corn on the cob). Yeah, I know, I am spoiled!!

Wing hugs coming your way!

Thanks for liking my picture. Kaji mom made it for me and we like it alot too.
Next month we are getting company so we wont be on BC either then.
This morning after mom got my breakfast and hers and dads she decided to go for groceries. It was raining but mom figured she would dodge the rain drops and get it over with. Dad was home so I didn’t have to go in my condo and stay so that was good. When mom got back and put stuff away her and dad went to vote. Then I did have to be in my condo but the good part was its close by and they weren’t gone long. After they got back mom took me out for a sunbath and just as we got out there the sun vanished and it got cloudy and windy so we came back in the house so no sunbath today. We will see what tomorrow brings if I get a sun bath or not then,. “A memory last forever never does it die. True friends stay together and never say goodbye.” Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

It was just a lazy day today. Did a few things around the house and then enjoyed the pool/lanai. I did get a nice sunbath and spoke with a few local birds.
Luna (skinsis's corgi puppy) found a chocolate egg on a lawn and ate it. She was very sick and rushed to ER. They worked on her and got it out. Now she is back home and resting, doing well. Who leaves a Cadbury chocolate egg on the lawn?

  Hi Finnegan
Oh, we understand! It's tough to downsize, though.
I went back to the vet yesterday. The appointment was for 3:30, so mom left super early, thinking she'd run into a lot of school buses. She ran into 2, so we got there before 3 o'clock. Mom had something to read, though, so we were fine. The vet looked at my booboo, and said the inside of my leg had a beautiful scab on it, so it's healing nicely. The outside, after she cleaned it off a little, looked much better too. It got hard, which means it's on a healing path. The edges are curling in, which is a good sign, according to the doctor. And there are some new feathers coming in. I have to stay on my meds: pain relief through Friday, and antibiotic for the full 14 days. She wanted to see me next week, but there are no times when she and mom are both available. Mom made an appointment for May 4, and called off from the museum that day. She also told them at the vet's office that if they have a cancellation next week, to call her and get her in sooner. They said they would. When we left the doctor's office, we ran into rush hour traffic, as mom thought. We were fine until we crossed the Allegheny River. There was traffic on that road until we turned off for home. We were about 20 minutes getting to the vet, and about an hour and 20 minutes getting home.
Today mom had 2 tours at the museum with second grade children. It was an animal tour, so she started both of the groups in bird hall. They all had questions about the birds! The funny thing was that the first group was all boys, and the second was all girls. They were okay for second grade, not quite as bad as mom thought they'd be.
Did you notice on the parrot newsletter that it's not i5publishing any more? It said Lumina, formerly i5 in the credits. Maybe that's why BC is doing better for the past 2 days.
I hope you are having another beautiful day. We sure are! It's cooler than it was yesterday, only in the 70s today, but it's sunny and pretty out. I hope also that you are getting lots of attention, cuddles, and scritches today. Hugs, Falco

Well, I tried to get you here ...lol. My parronts went thru the same thing. Dad said he would stay at our big house until he couldn't take care of it anymore. One side was 3 stories because it was on the side of a hill. We also had 14 acres ... lots of upkeep. Mom loved the house and land but it got to be too much. We thought we would move to a condo maybe an hour from you. But dad said ...want to move to FL and we said YES! No snow is perfect for us!
Another beautiful day here. Well, until a huge fire started in the "wilds" only a mile from us. It's all wilderness there and a large creek with water separates us from it. We are a block away from the water. All our doors and windows were kept closed as it smelled! We don't know if it was a controlled burn or not ... but, it was really huge!
This evening, Bunni was looking at us and mom called out 'hi Bunni" and he came hopping half way to us. Then stopped and ate more grass.

  Heya, Finnegan!
Greyt to hear from ya! Figured with your Mom and Dad doing stuff for moving, it sure takes the time and energy of 6 people! And wow, that is a lot of yard to take care of! With the stuff that your Mom and Dad have been thru, it would be impossible to keep up with all the outside stuff. And then there is the inside work, which is just as hard to get done before you have to start over. A nice condo would be lovely--there are many here that are super nice--just depends on where they are, how much they are, and whether you want a single type home or one in a complex. Mom looks at them and knows pretty much what she would want...but they would be in a warmer area!

Yesterday we were at 78. Today, 47. Crazy, huh? Frankly I liked the 78 better. Overcast, with some rain off and on. Damp. Yuck!

I went to my new vet today. Mom said she was impressed with how well I did there. Got up on the scale perch and sat there! She says she has never seen me perch on the scale like that. They usually have to put me in a bucket to weigh me. So that went good. The lady vet came in and checked me over. I was pretty good, too, Mom said. She snipped and dremeled my toenails. Mom said I was falling asleep when she was doing that (there was a man tech holding me). She checked my wings, too, but those are fine. Then we went out to pay for the checkup and nail trim--and all the lady techs came over and had to check me out. I was totally charming, too, and fluffed my feathers and called out 'Big Cutie', too. They all loved me. Mom says I was awesome, and happy, too. The place is pricey, but if I like it, then she will save up and make sure I get my nail trims there. Normally I am totally grumpy, but today, nope, not at all. Maybe cuz Mom was in the room with me all the time? Hard to say.

So, that was my day. Had to nap after I got home, and am on Mom's shoulder now dozing off.

Wing hugs coming your way!
Your buddy,
Kaji

  Hi Finnegan
Yes sure understand your parronts wanting to move.My mom and dad are content with our house and smaller yard at their age now. Mom is glad when her and dad married the skin kids were all married and on their own and didnt need a big house cause now 30 years later its ideal at their age. You do need a bigger house when raising a family though.
When mom and I go out for my sunbath there are some sparrows that come to visit. The one seems pretty friendly. It gets in the rain gutter that comes off the porch and mom didn’t think anything of it till today when she saw all the nesting material sticking out of the gutter. Mom cleaned it all out and hope they don’t try to build a nest there again cause they will flooded out! They already tried to build a nest above the porch light but mom puts a jug up there and they give it up then.. Mom says when a rain comes they will give the porch gutters up too. “Best friends are the ones you can do anything or nothing with and still have the best time.” Your best friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Come visit me, Gus & Chi chi RIP my sweet girl..
