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 Mr. Finnegan

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

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

7 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??.

Hello everybirdie, Jesse here with our Humpday BOTM Adventure Post. What a relief to see Spot back with us, only to have the the rest of you disappear before our eyes. There is something funny going on around here.
I was just about to cheer for joy that we had found Spot when I heard Cookie say, "I wish I had a jelly donut" and zuzam he became a jelly donut.
"NO LIZZIE" I screamed just in time to stop Lizzie from making a quick snack of our friend cookie. " that's Cookie? I think!"
Everywhere I looked there was something new where a moment before a birdie had stood. Sky was a big green dill pickle, there were cookies, peanuts, shoes, and all sorts of funny things, and of course Cookie the jelly-filled doughnut. Now, I know that this corn maze has been one unusual adventure but there was definitely something odd happening, and I was determined to find out what. With Spot, BonBon, Jenny-Lynn and a few other remaining birdies, we carefully gathered our friends up, and placed them into our backpacks to take to the Castle. BB threw Sky, the pickle, over her shoulder. "I told him if he didn't stop eating so many one day he'd turn into a pickle."
"Ok, we have everyone? Let's get to the castle. I know that the Book of Magic spells there must have a way to turn them back to themselves." to myself I said "I hope!" and off we went along the wide road. The Castle drew ever closer as we hurried to reach it's safety and save our friends.
Finally at the Castle, we made no waste of time to rush in the gates and into the main hallway. Queen Angel was there to greet us. "Where is everybirdie? Did you enjoy the Corn Maze?"
With a quick explanation about our friends we headed to the Magic Room, a place created by Queen Angel during her stay this month. As we filed into the room, lauded down with the backpacks filled with our changed friends we saw Tango there, dressed as a pretty Fairy. She was startled to see all of us there in the Magic Room.
"Hello Jesse, Hi everyone, how do you like my Fairy Halloween Costume?" she asks happily, then in her wings we saw it, Kiddo's Merlin the Wizard's magic spell book. Tango happily reads a spell from it, as butterflies and flowers magically appear.
"Tango, don't do that" Jenny-Lynn says quickly, " that Book is filled with Spells and magic incantations that only Kiddo knows. Then she remembered the Magic wand that had been Kiddo and she reaches into her backpack and retrieves it carefully. She takes the big Book of Spells from Tango and wing-tips through the pages. "Nothing. Nothing here about changing birds back to themselves.' she continues to look when suddenly she sees the page she was looking for, "here, this is it, " How to Undo What's Been Done" She reads it carefully. It says we need a Wizard?"
"Oh No, we have none right now. WAIT! Maybe a Fairy will do?" Jesse says eggcitedly looking at Tango

Hi everybirdie, Jesse here with your Too'sday BOTM Adventure Post. It's a greyt day with the Castle so close, and the BC lake and all these squawk-atiels flying by with birdie's blogs. We are so close to safety with makes a bird happy.
Spot yells as loud as his Tiel voice will allow him, and realizes that nobirdie can hear him. No birdie that is but Lizzie, the Dragon can. Dragon's are magical so she can hear Spot calling for help.
Spot thinks to himself, " I must get their attention that I'm here, I KNOW what to do! "Spot decides maybe he can touch the other birds! "If they can't hear me, or see me, maybe they can feel me!" He runs up to BB and touches her on the leg.
"Hey! whose messing with my leg! " Bb yells startled by the sudden touch. This gets Sky's attention and he runs over and looks around! He searches but nobirdie is there.
"I don't see anybirdy, BB. Maybe you imagined it! " Sky tells her, trying to calm her down.
Spot tugs on Jesse's tail and he yelps "Owwww! " Jesse whirls around quickly, but nobody is there.
Everybirdy starts looking for the invisible toucher!
Suddenly, Jenny says," hey, whoever it is just beat out Morse code for SOS! Now they're beating out "It's me Spot! I'm invisible!"
"Good grief, Spot! Well, come on, hold my wing and we'll go to the castle and figure this out" Spot reaches out and grasps Jenny-Lynn's wing, and holds on tight, afraid he'll be left behind.
Jesse frowns as he continues to walk towards the Castle. As he walks he thinks about his missing friends. "How could birdie's vanish inside a corn maze?"
"Jesse, we're almost to the Castle. Once we get help we'll go back to find Sugar, Cori, Cydney, Snowflake, Gus, Pepper, Apache, Sweetpepper and Pearl. We'll find them." Hulk says
"LOOK!" BonBon calls out, " I can see the Castle walls. SPOT, we'll be there soon, and we'll figure out how to make you visible again."
"I can see him" Lizzie tells Kaji and Gus.
"That's because you're a Magic Dragon Lizzie." Kaji tells her with a smile.
As they walk, Sky begins to think about the pickles he'll eat once he gets to the Castle and they find their friends. "I wish I had a pickle right now." "Phuuufffff. Sky turns into a Pickle"
BB screams, as she watches Sky change into a pickle. Just as she sees her Sky change, Chyna turns into a pair of comfortable shoes, Panther turns into an Army Tank, Kiddo changes into a magic wand, Dixie and Little Angel become a scooter. Everybirdie who made an "I wish..." had become what they had wished.
"OH NO!" BonBon cries "I wish I could see Spot right now" Spot appears before her. "Can you see me Spot?" BonBon asks.
"Of course I can" Spot says, hugging his fister, then remembering he isn't suppose to like her too much, he straightens up, " where'd all these things come from?"

Hello everybirdie, Jesse here with your Monday BOTM Adventure Post It was awesome to see so many of our friends at the Haunted Castle Tour Milonga on Saturday evening. We had a frightfully good time.
Sky scrambles up the ladder after the others are all safely together on the wide road above. Looking around carefully he sees that it indeed appears to be the road that leads tot he castle, the help in finding the others who are missing and Lizzie's kitchen, and an endless supply of pickles.
"Ok Jesse, let's get moving, we need to get to the Castle and get the Macaw guards. If we come back soon as we can, we'll all be a safely home by nightfall" Sky says encouragingly
BonBon tugs on Jesses wing! "Uncle Jesse? Are we gonna find Spot now?"
"We're sure to find him and all the others and if not, George the Tiger will help us find them!"
"OK," says BonBon, a little mollified.
Sky picks her up and says, "come on little one! You'll be safe with me!" Off they go down the wide road! Sky stops to pick up Dixie and L'il Angel, placing them onto his other shoulder. With the Castle so close everybirdie feels much happier and certain that all will be ok in the end.
"We should be at the Castle really soon. The Squawk-atiels are flying past more often now, we're definitely heading in the right direction." Jenny-Lynn exclaims
Spot hears the sound of the others in the distance and gets up from beneath the tall oak tree. He'd done what his Momma Rea had always told him to do if he got lost, " stay where you are until I find you" He was relieved to know that the others would be there soon, and he'd be safely back with his friends. He listens and can hear his Poppa Sky, Jenny-Lynn and even his fister BonBon. He smiles knowing she's so worried about him. "I know she'll never admit it" he says to himself.
"Come on everyone, let's hurry, the sooner we arrive at the Castle the faster we find help in locating our missing friends, and my wife-bird Sweetpepper" Kiddo calls out as he hurries to keep up to Jesse.
Spot watches as in the distance the group of friends grows closer and closer. He decides he should head their way and rejoin them and having made the decision heads off towards the south. Spot quickens his pace as the group grows nearer to him. He begins to call out, trying to get their attention.
"Did you hear something?" Lizzie asks Willie, " I'm sure I just hear something."
Willie looks in the direction Lizzie points, but seeing nothing he shakes his head, " No, maybe you thought you heard something Lizzie. No one's there."
Lizzie frowns. She is pretty sure she'd heard someone calling out for help. She walks along, listening to hear the voice again. "THERE!" she says, hearing Spot calling once more. Willie looks once more, still seeing nothing. "Lizzie, you're hearing things"
Spot calls out again, but no one, except Lizzie looks in his direction. "They can't hear me!"

Hi everybirdie, Jesse here with your Sunday BOTM Adventure Post. What a relief to know we are finally back heading towards Bird Channel Castle. The only real problem is we still haven't seem the Castle, and our friends are still missing.
" It is definitely Bird Channel, and I know we have to head this way" Jesse says, " Squawk-atiels only remove blogs they never bring them, so we go this way" Jesse points to the North. He came from that direction."
A wave of hope fills everybirdie's heart as they began their trek towards the North, and the BC Castle. Knowing they were back on BC, allowed them to enjoy the walk with the babbling brook beside them, and the Castle somewhere ahead of them. The girls pick daisies making pretty necklaces and leg bands for the boy birds.
"Jesse, I can't wait to get back to the Castle. This has been one scary adventure." Dixie says as he and Little Angel walk together. ""we need to get back to find the others."
"It shouldn't be too far now." Jesse replies, scanning the horizon for the Castle.
"Sky, I think something is wrong." BB whispers, " we should be at the Castle by now"
"I bet it is right over that hill there" Sky says, pointing to a hill that lies to the northeast.
Jesse stops to get his bearings, climbing up a small hill he stares a long time into the distance before saying, " I see a ladder ahead to the right. We need to climb it,to get onto the road and continue to the North. If we stay here in the meadow we have a very long ways to go to reach the Castle.
Panther joins Jesse on the hill. They both look at the ladder for a while. Then they look towards the North. The Castle is no where to be seen ahead. The ladder looks well used, and reaches a wide roadway above. It has to be the main road that leads back to the Castle. They decide to climb it themselves first and check it out, before allowing the others to follow them. Too many birdies have already vanished. After briefly explaining their plans to the group, Jesse and Panther lead the others towards the ladder.
After a quick walk, they reach the ladder sitting invitingly, leading upwards to the wide road above. Sky tries hard to discourage Panther and Jesse from climbing it, but to no avail. Jesse leaves his backpack on the ground and begins the long climb to the top with Panther right behind him. As they reach the top, they scramble up onto the road. It is a wide well worn road, one that has been traveled many times, and recently too. It has to be the road that leads to the BC Castle. They decide to explore a little before allowing the others to join them. They travel down the road and see that the BC lake is there, safe as always to their right, and the Castle, oh the Castle is there too, sitting high upon it's hill.
"OK, come on, we're back, we've found our way back." Jesse calls as he high fours Panther. Sky grabs Jesse's pack, and helps the others up the ladder before following behind.......

Hello everybirdie, Jesse here with today's Haunted Castle Milonga day BOTM Adventure Post. The three doors opened. As we look we see that behind Miss Ronnie's door, lightening flashes, and rain falls heavily, behind BonBon's the sun shines, and the sound of a babbling brook can be heard, and behind Piddy and Paddy's door, Jesse and the others can see that everything looks very beautiful, too beautiful in fact, sunny, and bright. It surely must be the right door!
"Can we go through this door? I love sunshine! And maybe Spot's there" BonBon squeals delighted to start on a new adventure.
"No, wait!!" says Jesse"We don't know what's back there yet. Piddy and Paddy, back away from that door! Let me look first, to make sure it's safe to enter it."
All of them wait to give Jesse a chance to see what's inside. Jesse looks carefully through the first door with the lightening,"nope, not this one!" The second door appears safe, but that could be an illusion! " let me see, I'll check door three too!" Finally he looks through the third door and screams!
All the birdies drop to the ground and cover their ears and shut their eyes! What could make Jesse scream like that?
Jesse screams so loud it scares everybirdie. Backing away from the door Jesse's face is white with fright. " Ok, definitely not door number three. Jesse slams the third door shut just in time. As the door closes a heavy thud echos from inside as something hits it hard. A loud, frightening roar sounds then all becomes eerily quiet once more.
"Told ya three doors is never a good idea." Kaji says
"Alright we have only one option. Door number two it is" Jesse announces, as he picks up his backpack, and waits for the others to get ready. "Follow me, we're gonna find Spot and head for the Castle to get help" Jesse steps boldly towards the second door. As he is about to go through, BonBon leaps past and disappears inside. Everybirdie watches in shock as she vanishes out of sight. Just as they are ready to change their minds, they hear from inside a tiny Budgie voice, "Come on, what are you waitin' for?" Jesse smiles, as he follows the voice. He steps through the door, and begins to fall, slipping and sliding down a chute. He hits the bottom with a splat. Standing up, he fluffs his feathers before calling out, " Ok, follow me, it's just a slide, it's fun.
One by one the other Adventurers step through the tiny door in the cloud, slipping and sliding to the bottom where BonBon, Jesse and the others awaiting them. They look around and can see that they are in a meadow filled with daisies. A gentle brook runs through it, and the sun is bright in the blue sky above. A lone Oak tree stands on a tiny hill.
"It looks like Bird Channel to me" Sky says looking intently around him. Above in the sky a Squaw-atiel flies past carrying somebirdies blog. "YEP, definitely BC, but which way do we go now?"

Good Friday morning everybirdie, Jesse here with your BOTM Adventure Post. Just when things begin to look better, and the flag from the BC Castle is visible on the far distant horizon, Spot disappears in down-side Uppsie land.
"Anyone?" Spot cries out loudly. He looks around carefully for any signs of where he might be, but all he can see in every direction is the heads of beautiful white Daisies and the green lush fields. Trying not to panic he sits down under the shade of a large oak tree to think. Putting his wing tip to his chin, he frowns. " Now, since i don't know where i am, how do i know how to get back to where i came from?"
"SPOT!!!!!" Jesse yells as he sees his tail feathers disappear from sight. It's too late, Spot is gone, vanished. " SPOT, come backkkkk"
"Where'd Spot go?" a tearful BonBon asks, rubbing her wing tips togetehr anxiously. "I'm gonna get in trouble if I loose him"
"Don't worry, we'll find him" Jesse says. " Let's search. Everybirdie, spread out and look for Spot. HE was flying up? Down? to the sky and suddenly vanished. there must be an eggplanation. Stay in pairs, and don't wander too far from sight." The birdie hurry to begin their hunt for the missing Spot . Jesse flies upwards towards the ground, and looks in every upside down tree before landing in the sky once more. Sky and BB head towards the biggest cloud to search there. It was the last place they'd seen Spot before he disappeared.
"Dixie, I'm getting scared. Everyone is vanishing. We have to stay really close." Little Angel holds onto Dixie's wing as they look for Spot
"Don't worry LA I will always protect you." Dixie says kissing her softly on the beak. It was then that Dixie saw the little door.
"JESSE! SKY! EVERYBIRDIE!" Dixie yells loudly, "we found something, hurry"
"What is it, did you find SPOT? BonBon asks
"NO, we found a tiny door in this cloud. It was hidden from sight by the white fluffy clouds, but look" Dixie points to a little door in the distance.
"Come on let's check this out" Jesse calls eager to find Spot, and all the others. He waddles quickly towards the door. As they approach they see there are in fact three doors, side by side.
"Now what do we do?" Kaji asks, looking at the three doors. "three doors is never good. One is always holding in some kinda scary monster."
"We could open all three at once and see what lies behind them" Miss Ronnie chirps bravely
"Yeah, come on" BonBon agrees, " Budgies aren't afraid of anything. Miss Ronnie grabs one door knob, BonBon the other and Piddy and Paddy the third, they turn them before Jesse can yell "NO! Wait!"
The three doors open. Behind Miss Ronnie's door, lightening flashes, and rain falls heavily, behind BonBon's the sun shines, and the sound of a babbling brook can be heard, and behind Piddy and Paddy's...

Good morning everybirdie, Jesse here once more with your BOTM Adventure Post.
After hiking along the path for a long while, I decide to stop for a moment to rest, and seeing a large rock, I sit down. Well, I look up and see that the grass and trees are up-side-down.
I shake my head, and rub my tired eyes, "I must be seeing things" so peaking another look up, I see that the grass, trees and everything from the downside is now on the up-side. " EEEEEEEE!"
"What's wrong Jesse?" Chyna asks then suddenly realizes she is standing on a cloud in the sky. She looks above and sees what had scared Jesse so much. The trees are above her head. As Jesse and Chyna makes this discovery, it becomes apparent that every other birdie has also realized that they are floating in the air, or is the ground floating?
"Don't panic" Angel says, " trying to reach the rock? Cloud? that Jesse is sitting on. He ducks quickly as a Duck flies by upside down. " Now this is too weird"
" Where are we BB?" Sky asks her, hoping there is a logical answer to why they are now below the ground or above it? Sky shakes his red head, this is getting confusing. " I sure could use a pickle right now?" he says to himself
" It must be " Uppie-Downsie Land" BB answers, not eggactly certain where they were. She looks around at the ground above her. " look, in the distance, I can see the tower of the BC Castle" she points to the very far distance, and the small flag that sits on the top of the main tower. A wave of relief washes through the group of Corn Maze Adventurers. But how to get there from here?
"Look the path is up there" BonBon says to Spot. She tilts her head to see it better.
"How are we going to follow the path, when we are up here, or down here, in the air?" Cappy questions
"If we are upside down then we have to figure out how to get back down? Up, there?" Jenny-Lynn explains, concern in her voice. " I knew I should have brought my cell phone"
Jesse, sighs, scratching his head. If they were now upside down, or down-side up, how could they get there from here? He looked at the blue sky and clouds that carried on as far as the eye could see, then at the ground, the path, the trees above. " I wonder if we can fly down there, or up there? SPOT?" Jesse explains his idea, and Spot agrees to try to fly down or up to the ground to see if he could find a way back to where they belonged. Taking off into the air Spot circles twice then heads for the ground above, but begins to fall towards the sky where the others are watching hopefully from below. Spot hits the sky, ground with a bump, then stands up.
"Where am I?" he asks out loud, brushing the dust off his feathers. HE looks and sees that he is alone, beside a large field of daisies. All the others have disappeared from sight.
"HELPPPPPPPPP!" he calls and his voice echos in the empty field. HE is all alone in some strange place, " JESSE? Poppa SKY?" he calls, but realizes he has disappeared from their sight.

Hello. Hello. Quit that. Quit that. Geesh. Geesh. It's me Jesse, the real Jesse with today's BOTM Adventure Post.
Snowflake looks at her double, " Two Snowflakes are better than one heehee" Her double laughs too.
"You know this could be fun, especially when time for grooming." Cookie says, " then again how can I tell which me, is me?" he frowns and his double copies his every move.
Jesse stands tall, trying to see if he can find a logical answer to this double-trouble. He finds BonBon sitting on the path in front of her double. She is carefully grooming out the spider webs from her feathers.
"What are you doing?" says Jesse.
"Preening! After all, I am a pretty bird! I can't be seen with this junk on my feathers. So when I found this mirror, I decided it was a good idea to clean up some!"
"MIRROR!" shouts Jesse. "Hey Spot, these are mirrors!" Jesse yells eggcitedly.
Spot looks critically at his double and says," I hope I don't really look this bad! He starts to preen as well."
"Aaaaaagh" says Jesse. "We are still missing birds! Clean up later!" Jesse is thrilled to learn that the doubles are in fact mirror-images. " we can keep going. Our doubles are just reflections in mirrors. That's why they do everything we do exactly, they are us, only doubles." Jesse scratches his head,, "Ok, that was even confusing to me, but the point is, we can leave the doubles behind."
Snowflake frowns, "I kinda like my double. She's beautiful, and loves to giggle just like me."
Kiddo comes to where Jesse is standing, a sad, worried look on his face. "OH NO! Where is my SweetPepper??!! I have no idea, and it is really scaring me that my wifebird in now one of the missing. We need to find the Macaw Guard right away for some help. Maybe George the Tiger could help with his superior smelling abilities."
Jesse agrees, and helping Kiddo up onto a large boulder, he waits as Kiddo calls "GEORGE! GEORGE! We need your help!"
"I sure hope he hear me." Kiddo says climbing back down. " we have to locate the missing birds."
"We will, don't worry. We can't be too far from the Castle now." Jesse replies encouragingly. " let's get everybirdie ready and keep going. We'll be safe at the castle soon."
Kiddo and Jesse wander around the group of double-birdies, telling everyone the news that they will soon be at the Castle. Bidding farewell to themselves they leave their double behind, as they start off once more along the worn path. The ground slants upwards as they continue to walk quickly along.

Hi everybird, Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure POST. It is such a relief to be free from those creepy, crawly, ucky black Monster sized Spiders. I didn't wanta say anything but I think that some of them are the Giant Birdeater Spiders. "YUCK, is all I can say."
"Where are Sweetpepper, Apache and Pearl gone?" Kiddo asks in fear for his wife-bird and friends.
"Not again" Jesse says his yellow face turning a ghostly white. "they have to be here, I just saw them a moment ago!" Jesse brings to run back and forth searching under every bush, behind every tree and asks everybirdie, but he is unable to find his missing friends. Sadly he returns to where Sky is in deep conversation with Jake and Spot.
" We have to get to the Castle. We can't delay. Our friends are gone, and we have to save them." Sky's voice hesitates for a moment, before finishing his sentence, " before it's too late"
"Everybirdie" Jesse calls out loudly, " we are going to follow a path I found searching for Sweetpepper and the others. It looks well traveled, it must lead to the Castle. We have to hurry, it's getting late, the sun will be setting soon."
Jesse leads out, following the path, watching carefully for anything "odd" he might find along it. Everything is fine, and he begins to relax, the birdies are making greyt time, they will be safely at the Castle soon. Then he can return with help to find their missing friends.
"JESSE?" Spot flies up to walk with him, have you noticed anything weird?
"Nope, everything looks fine. WHY?" Jesse asks an edge of concern to his voice.
"No reason, well, maybe it might be odd, maybe not but have you noticed that every tree is planted beside another one that is the same?"
Jesse looks at the trees beside the path, and certainly it is true, every tree has a perfect match to it. He continues to watch as he walks quickly along. Every rock and every bush also has a double.
"Yeah, it sure is odd Spot." Jesse turns his head to speak to Spot and let's out a terrified scream, " SPOT? SPOT?" he yells in terror, as his eyes fall upon not one but two Spots. Jesse screams again, and a perfect echo follows, causing him to snap his head to the right to come beak to beak with "HIMSELF! AHHHHHHHHHHH!"
"SKY, JAKE, come quickly!" the two Jesse's scream in echo of one another. Jesse tries to get away from himself, but his double follows every move he makes. he sees Sky and Jake coming his direction, and stops. There are two of each of them, in fact everywhere Jesse looks there are two of everybirdie. The others realize that they too have a perfect double and fear spreads like fire among the group.
"Falco? BooBoo?" Hulk asks then backs away unsure of which one is the real Falco and the real BooBoo.

  Hi Finnegan
It must have been good for mom to get away for awhile! Today is a pretty lazy day for all of us. Mom got her nails done, then came home to be with us. She carried in the African violets a while back because of the weather, so today she's closing the fountain, bringing in the rest of the house plants, and maybe planting the amaryllis and paper whites her friend left for her. There is still a Boston fern outside, as well as a succulent dish garden. We hope they have both survived the chilly nights lately. If not, well, there's always the nursery next year.
I hope you are having a good day today, and getting lots of sun, cuddles, and kisses. Hugs, Falco

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

  Hi Finnegan
It was just too late to get a hold of your mom. I hope next time she comes up here, she can meet me.
Awwwww, we all miss our moms when they go away.
I sure hope your dad's appointment goes well.
Today was interrupted by a visit from a doe and fawn. They spent most of the day eating our grass. I squawked to them one time and they heard me. I was just saying hello and hope they enjoyed their dinner.
It was another night of internet problems. I'm finally on .... hope it's ok now.
Hugs
Chyna

Hello everybirdie, Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure POST. What a sticky, icky mess we have found ourselves in. Giant Spiders everywhere, and no where to run. Then all of a sudden I found a clearing. I was eggcited to see our way of escape, that is until the air is shattered by the terrified scream of Dixie.
Dixie is very upset and frightened about what the spiders would do to Little Ange. He runs in circles around the tree where she is hanging from their thick webs! Dixie screams for someone to come to his aid," Please help me reach my wife bird and cut her loose" He tries but is too small to reach her at this point! He asks permission to get on top of Poppa Sky's head so he can have a better reach of her and then pulling off a thick branch from the Mulberry tree to reach LA with, he stands carefully on Poppa Sky's head trying to balance with his twisted toes,all the while reaching up with the long branch to his Little Angel! Little Angel reaches down breaking through the webbing she is caught in and grabs the branch that Dixie is holding out to her, suddenly losing her balance she falls from the webbing and tumbles down onto Dixie, as both birds fall sliding down Poppa Sky's red feathered back!
Dixie kisses his Little Angel. "Oh Dixie you saved my life. I'm sure those black Monster Spiders were going to eat me for dinner." Little Angel sniffs, wiping a tear from her eye. Sky checks his little fister over and seeing she and Dixie are ok, he stands tall as he can, and looks intently around to find a way to escape from this mess. It is while he is busy searching that Jenny-Lynn arrives ta his side. "SKY, I have a plan." she whispers into Sky's ear. HE nods his red head several times as he listens to her plan. After she finishes he clears his voice to get everybirds attention.
"Jenny-Lynn has a plan. She thinks if we were to form a long line and use sticks to break the webs, we can easily bust free of the spider's trap and get away from here. BonBon has a lighter." He frowns, thinking to himself, she ought not to have it in the first place, taking note to lecture his daughter later. " We can use it to burn the webs off the trees and bushes, our sticks can tear them down from the path ahead of us." Seeing no other plan, everybirdie lines up, wing to wing forming a greyt line of feathers, and slowly they work their way forward, removing webs as they go. It seems a very long time before they reach the end of the spiders home, and bid them a quick good-bye. The Spiders glare angry eyes at the retreating birds. "Just wait, they think they are free from troubles...." The Spiders hiss and laugh as they return to their damaged webs. " they'll wish they were here again!"
Jesse stops for a moment to get his bearings. He sits on a tree that had fallen to the ground. HE asks SKY to find Apache so he can use the binoculars. Sky searches but returns with Kiddo in a panic, " Apache, Sweetpepper and Pearl are gone!"

Hi everybirdie Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure POST. I want to take a moment to thank you all for your continuous daily votes, and awesome blogs. I am trying to use them in my story line so keep them comin.' IF anybirdie still needs a Halloween picture please let me know your choice of costume and I will see what I can do to help you out.
"AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" Sky screams shrilly and he a Jake back up quickly from the mound of parted grass. "What was that thing???"
"I have no idea but I'm outta here" Jake heads back to rejoin BB and the others, with Sky following on his heels.
Sky shivers, and ducks behind BB. Peaking out to stare towards the grass with dilated eyes. "EEEEEKuck." Sky did not get the words out before birdies began to scream and jump as fast as they could to join Jake and Sky behind BB and BonBon who had come to see what was wrong with her Poppa Sky.
"S-P-I-D-E-R-S!" from every direction big, ucky, black, beady eyed spiders crawl, hang and appear out of every tree, bush and from behind every blade of grass. The girl birds huddle close together as the spiders spin their webs angrily from every solid object. Sky nervously sneaks a peak again from behind BB, closing his eyes. He hates spiders, well no, Sky is afraid of them, and these are BIG, black ucky ones with a quadrillion legs. He shutters, then takes a brave breath of air.
"BOYS, we must protect the ladies" Sky announces not too confidently.
"Yeah, that's right" Cookie says, hanging tightly onto BB's leg once more. " we'll protect you girls"
"Oh really, they're just Spiders" BooBoo says snatching one in her beak and swallowing it whole, "YUMMMMMIE"
The others look at BooBoo and make faces, "how disgusting BooBoo, eating it without BBQing it first" BonBon chirps up. " AHHHHHHH, ones chasing me" she says taking flight. She lands on her Poppa Sky's head. "I'll sit up here and keep watch on them for you" she grins down at her red feathered Poppa.
The spiders continue to emerge, spinning thick webs everywhere. Their black eyes glaring like fiery flames of anger. The birds huddle closely as the Spiders move closer and closer. Suddenly Jesse sees what looks like an opening, and yells, " Follow me" he runs as fast as his talons will carry him between two Mulberry bushes with the others closely upon his heels. The duck low to avoid the heavy webs hanging from the old dark trees, and weave to the left and right around the huge black spiders who appear to block their path of escape. Jesse rushes forward, jumping over an old fallen log, and lands inches from a monstrous Spider, who growls and snaps his feet at the pasting birdies.
"EEEEEEEEEEEE" the scream brings the fleeing birds to a halt, "LITTLE ANGEL, the Spiders grabbed her into their web, HELP HER!!!!!

Hello friends, Jesse here with our Saturday BOTM Adventure Post. As we turned for a final look at BC Lake, the water is once more calm, glass-like and no sign of the past violent storm remains. Even the row-boats have disappeared. "WHAT! The row-boats, their gone!" Kacey exclaims loudly as she stares in disbelief. For indeed the boats had vanished into thin air.
BB looks at Sky and Jesse, then back at the Lake, "I hope we can find the BC Castle. It is funny that it has disappeared on us. I know it is a magical place but why would it vanish on the birds who love it sooooo much???" Then looking down towards the ground she says with a sigh, "Can somebirde please remove Cookie from around my legs? Its hard to waddle this way."
" SURE HOPE WE FIND OUR WAY BACK TO THE CASTLE THEN FIND OUR FRIENDS. THIS IS ONE SCAREY TRIP.' Sweetpepper tells Kiddo with worry in her voice. Kiddo takes her wing in his, and holds her tightly. "We'll get out of here, don't you worry Sweetpepper."
Spot comes to where Sky, BB and Jesse are standing, trying to decide what to do next. Jake walks towards the group, but suddenly stops dead in his tracks. "What was that?" he asks pointing to where he had thought he saw something peaking out of the grass at him. Seeing nothing he joins the others.
Bonbon looks and sees that her picture with Parker is in the photo album Hesse has on his gallery. turning to spot and Parker she says, "Jesse put me and Parker in the profile!Hehee!!! I can't wait to show Snowflake........ Oh no! I forgot that she disappeared!" BonBon starts to cry loudly because she misses her friend!
Spot hugs her and says, "don't worry BonBon. We'll find her and all the others too!"(He sounds more confidant than he feels, but he won't let BonBon see that!)
"Hey, Panther! I have an idea! We're tiels, and fly well! let's go up as high as we can and look for them!"
"Good idea, Spot," says Panther.
Jesse says, "you guys be careful! And keep up in sight range, OK?"
"OK, let's go Panther!" Spot lifts into the air
They fly straight up and fly in a big circle looking for their friends. Finally, they land and report to Jesse. "We didn't see them, we also didn't see the castle in any direction! I think we're lost!"
Worry lines form on Jesse's handsome face again, and he says, "it must be a trick of some kind by the BC ghosts! The Castle has to be there. It's always easy to find from the Lake."
Jake and Sky stand close, talking. "I am certain I saw tiny black eyes staring at me from over there, then they disappeared." Sky looks in the direction Jake indicated. Seeing nothing he frowns. " We better go check it out, just to be sure." The two boys inch closer to where the eyes had been. Parting the grass carefully using a stick Sky found on the ground they lean over for a better looks and suddenly the air is split in two by their terrified screams........

I wished I knew that your mom was coming up here. Then we could have met for a little while. She could have met me too! I hope she came with a warm jacket! We are in Petoskey all the time. Bay Harbor is very nice she should have a nice time.
Yes, it was a lot of fun at the Parrot Palooza but cold and rainy!
It seems that tossing a full food dish on the floor is frowned upon. So, I thought that two dishes would be better. Mom wasn't smiling! Hey, I'm bored with all this gloomy weather. Looks like we will have a few days in the 40's. I hope with no rain, my feet are getting webbed! QUACK!

Helloooooo, Jesse screams in fright as the row boat bounces wildly on the storm tossed lake. The waves reach high over the sides of the row-boats filling them with cold, icy water. The frightened birds yell for help, their voices lost in the crashes of thunder from above.
After what feels like an eternity, the small wooden row-boats bump roughly into the rocky shores of the BC Lake. With a deep sigh of relief everybirdie scrambles to escape from the angry waters, and wind, jumping over the edge quickly, and running for cover in the nearby brush that watches over the normally quiet Lake. Jesse crawls along the beach, counting heads, making certain everybirdie is safely ashore. With so many disappearing he doesn't plan to take any chances at all from here on. Sitting down beside SKY, BB and Jake Jesse rubs his chin as he thinks of the next thing he ought to do. HE frowns sadly, uncertainly etching his handsome face with worry lines.
"I'm not certain where we are?" Jesse says, sneaking a peak out from around the brush he and the others are hankered down behind.
"We aren't far from the Castle. In fact from every point of BC Lake we can see the Castle. We need to get our bearings." BB says with confidence.
"Ok, Jake and I will head up that small hill and get a better idea where we are." Sky says climbing to his feet, with Jake beside him. ' Be right back" he tells BB and Jesse as they head off up the hill.
"You any idea where we are?" Sky asks Jake as they climb the hillside.
"NOPE!" Jake says looking around slowly. " NEVER saw this place before"
Sky takes Apache's binoculars from his jacket pocket and scans the area. " I can't find the Castle. Actually I can't see anything I recognize."
Sky hands Jake the binoculars. HE looks along time, then " whistles softly. Nope, me either. I think if we head towards the west we will find the Castle, or at least something we will remember."
Sky and Jake climb back down to where they'd left Jesse and BB. After a moment of explanation, they decide that they better keep moving. BB agrees that the Castle should lay tot he West. Jesse once more moves down the brushes, stopping to explain the plan to each group of nervous adventurers. He stops where Falco and Boo Boo sit quietly looking rather scared. " I'll get you outta here, and we will find the others. I promise." Falco smiles softly.
"OKAY, everybirdie, let's keep moving. I am sure that if we keep heading WEST we will locate the Castle, or somewhere we will all recognize. We need to hurry, we have to find Sugar, Cori, Pepper, Gus, Snowflake and Cydney."
With much murmuring the tired, wet, scared birdies follow Jesse as he begins to walk towards the West. The group climbs a small hill, coming to rest at the top for a moment. As they reach the summit, the wind fades, the clouds part, and once more the sky shines blue, and golden with the warm sunshine.

  Hi Finnegan
Maybe mom will have a chance to see Chyna and her parronts.
Mom put away most of the stuff from Parrot Palooza. She gave each of us a new toy, and Maxine got a new perch, but the rest of the stuff got put up. I suspect we'll see it a little at a time. Mom was pleased to find greeting cards there with birds, too.
Yesterday after mom planted all the bulbs, the irises, and the rudbeckia, she thought she was done. Later, when she went out to get the mail, she noticed that our neighbor Jeff had left more things to plant on the shelf by the door! It was all indoor stuff, though, 2 amaryllis bulbs and some narcissus.
Today at the center, mom went into the RVS room and saw a cage standing open. She went to get Bree, and they looked all over the room for the missing raccoon. They couldn't find him, so mom took his chart to the front, entered today as his self release day into the computer, and put the chart in a drawer for filing. She then helped a new person catch a squirrel who had gotten loose. When she went back to the RVS room the raccoon was on the bank of cages staring at her! She got Bree, and the two of them captured the little bugger and put him in a carrier until his cage was done. Mom put a carabiner on the cage to prevent him from opening it again. There were other raccoons and a bat in there today, so it took the rest of her time to clean them, feed them, and finally she emptied the dryer, reloaded it, loaded up the washer, and started a load. Now she's ours for the day! I think she's still catching up with some reading on the Nook, before she starts another real book. Tomorrow is the museum, the opera, and dinner out, so we have to take advantage of today.
I hope you are having a fine fall day, not too cold and rainy. I also hope you are getting lots of scritchies and kisses today. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Finnegan
Thanks, that's my witch costume for Halloween.
Hope dad is doing good now.
So, Dolly got 3rd place. That's nice but, I think you need better judges that are fair next time.
I think that Aunt Gail had to work ... maybe next time she can come.
Well, mom is back and still isn't caught up with everything. It took her 10 hours to drive home on Tuesday in the rain. Mom was gone for seven days and dad took good care of me. She was tired but, I had to see what see what she bought for me! That is after I gave her my greeting. I've been in toy heaven chewing everything in sight! I heard her say that the big toy is for Christmas. Do I have to be good that long??? I also have new perches and some tasty treats. Oh yes, I'm a velcro bird again. She had a greyt time with all the BC moms and hopes to do it again some day. It was cold and everyone had to have lots of layers to keep warm but, still was fun. Maybe we birds can go next time????
Hugs
Chyna

Come visit me, Chyna ~ Thank You for BOTD & Bailey ♥ RIP.

  Hi Finnegan
Mom says it's worth the trip, just to meet everyone! She loved the socializing more than the shopping, I think.
A lot of what mom got were food samples, and surprise! I even ate a cranberry. Aunt Jane gave it to me. Of course when mom went to give me another one yesterday, I turned up my beak at it. She got new perches for some of us, too, and a rope perch for the Wingabago.
Mom spent the day yesterday doing laundry and playing catch up with chores. It was good for us, she was here all day, except when she went to the store and bought us fresh fruits and veggies. Today I think she'll be planting the things that were shared with her at the Palooza. Aunts Donna and Robin both gave her plants to keep her busy, and our neighbor gave her a bunch of tulip bulbs before she left, so she has some digging to do, if the weather doesn't turn nasty.
The gathering in New Jersey and at the Sheraton went far too quickly. I have to share a story about my idiot mom: she put her buttons of us in her suitcase inside a zippered compartment in the very front, and put the camera in the corresponding compartment on the other side. When she got to the hotel she thought she emptied the suitcase, and had forgotten to pack the buttons and the camera, so went all weekend without them. She found them on Monday when she got home! Good thing the phone had a camera in it!
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of loving attention. Hugs, Falco

Hi everybirdie, Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure POST. " SHHHHHH, we don't wanta wake up those crazy trees again."
"Turn three times and head to the East" Jenny-Lynn reads the sign, " what do you suppose this is all about Jesse?"
"HHHHMMM" Jesse rubs his chin, thinking deeply, as he looks around at the land before them, " not too sure but if the sign says head East we better do it." Jesse pulls his compose from his backpack and gets his bearings. " Ok, this way!"
"WAIT!" Chyna yells, "the signs says we have to turn three times first."
Jesse shrugs, shaking his head, "Girls" he thinks to himself. "East is East, but ok" he motions for everybirdie to stand still.
"The sign says we have to turn three times then head to the East" Jesse begins to turn in a 360 degree circle, " One, Two, Three" he stops and waits as the last of the group completes their third turn. "WOW, that makes me dizzy" Jesse giggles as he tries to get his balance.
"Alright, let's go this way. The road is narrow so be careful not to get too close to the trees and bushes as we get down this hill." Jesse strides off, happy to be moving as far away from the Enchanted Forest as he can get. The sun brilliantly shines down upon the birds as they enjoy the walk along the old dirt road heading towards the Castle in the East.
"Look, ahead" Rio says to Jesse, " what's that?" he points to a shiny area off to the side of the road about a quart mile away.
"Apache? Did you bring your binoculars?" Jesse asks
"Yes, of course, can't be a good scout without them" Apache pulls them over his head, and hands them to Jesse. " It's a lake. It must be the BC Lake" he hands the binoculars back to Apache. "we're nearly back tot he Castle" Jesse breathes a sigh of relief. Soon he could get the Macaw Guards and go back to find his two missing friends. His happy thoughts are shattered by a frantic cry.
" Cydney and Snowflake. They're gone" Raffi cries, as he rushes around, searching for them. " Where's Pepper? and Gus?" the others begin a frantic search for their friends. I saw Snowflake and Cydney, over there by that red rock. The boys spread out to search, but not a feather can be found from their missing friends. Tears fill their eyes as they return to the milling group, and tell them their friends have disappeared into thin air.
"We have to get out of here, and back to the Castle. Come on, let's hurry" Jesse leads out in a quick waddle as fast as his legs will carry him. The others scramble to keep up as they continue down the road drawing closer to the Lake. As the walk, the breeze begins to pick up, and clouds begin to blow blocking out the warm sun. Jesse feels a shiver of dread as he rushes towards the East..

Hello, Jesse here today with you next BOTM Adventure POST. " I always liked trees, but now I don't know" "HHHMMM?"
Spot reaches his Poppa Sky's side, " here, you'll need this" Spot hands his Poppa a hatchet.
"Where'd you find that?" Spot points to a rock by a tall Pine tree. It was just sitting there."
Sky grabs the hatchet and chops the limb off the tree. " AAAAHHHHH!" the Tree yells in pain.
"What?" Sky says to Spot who is helping fight off the vine with Poppa Sky;s pocket knife.
"That hurt" the Tree growls angrily. " now I'll show you" the Tree reaches out so quickly that Sky is not ready for the attack. It grabs his leg and pulls him up into the top-most branches, hanging him upside down. BB hears the scream, and rushes out of the safety of the Boulder where her Sky had left her. Others had found the safety also, and hurried to join her. " NO WAIT HERE" she says picking up a large branch lying on the ground. " that's my Mr Sky" she dashes and runs over the snaky vines, and ducks under the limbs reaching out to grab hold of her. She stands below the tree holding her SKY captive, and pulling back she let's the limb swing, slamming a home-run hit on it's trunk. The terrified tree screams in shock. " Let my MR SKY go, NOW!" she orders angrily. The terrified tree watches as she readies for a second hit. With aloud gasp, and thump, Mr Sky is dropped onto the ground at her feet, in a pile of red and green feathers. Seeing Sky is ok, if not embarrassed she orders the tree, " and Cookie too, and any other birdie you have up there to"
One by one they drop onto the soft leaves and grass below. Six birdies jump free and scramble for safety behind the boulder.
"Ok, let's go rescue the others." Sky tells Spot and BB. They work their way from bush and tree to tree. Leaves shaking furiously at them, as they release their bounty. "Where's Jesse?" Spot asks once the others were in safety. I haven't seen him yet. JESSE?" Spot listens carefully. "Hear that?" he asks BB
"This way" Spot leads the rescuers towards the source of the muffled sound. There, lying rolled in Ivy and wild grape vines with only his bright yellow head feathers showing was his Uncle Jesse. " et eeee utta ere." Spot begins to carefully cut the twined vines and Ivy free, making sure not to cut Uncle Jesse in the process. " Ah, thanks Spot, I was starting to loose consciousness."
Jesse scrambles free of the vines, panting. HE looks around at the trees, now standing quietly, leaves stirring gently in the soft, autumn breeze, like a man sleeping in the sun. " What just happened?" he says out loud.
" We best be gettin' outta here quick, before these crazy trees wake up." Jesse waves the others onwards, as he stand watch until the last one is clear of the " Enchanted Forest". He hurriedly takes the lead once more, as the group climbs a hill. At the peak, a sign reads; turn three times and head to the East.

  Hi Finnegan
We are sorry to hear that dad is still struggling to heal.
It sure sounds like Dolly ran rings around those other animals, and should have taken top prizes in everything!
Last week Aunt Jane drove here from Michigan and picked up mom and off they went! Bree stayed with us and did a great job.
Now mom is back from New Jersey and Parrot Palooza. She had a great time, meeting all the bird moms and having a lot of time to visit and talk with them, although at times, it was kind of like the milonga, she couldn't get a word in edgewise, heehee. It was super to see a lot of the folks we just talk with online. The only thing that would have made it better would have been for us parrots to go to Parrot Palooza!
Mom carried a bag with parrots painted on it, and wore all her parrot jewelry. They shopped on Friday and more on Saturday. They saw a parrot show on Saturday, mom won a prize in one of the penguin races, and made a toy for us as well. Sunday was a quieter day. Aunts Donna and Therese invited everyone for brunch, and they made a day of it, visiting and talking, then went out to dinner together, too. Sheesh, you'd think they'd have had enough, right? But no, mom loved every minute of it, and wished it could have lasted longer.
In my pics you can see the loot in 3 pics! The one with the bird mom tee is Aunt Jane's pile, the other 2 piles are ours. The other pics show a sign welcoming BC people to the Palooza (WOW) and a group shot in back of the sign. On Willie's page are a Java tree stand with carved parrots on it, a different group shot, and mom with a Moluccan 'too named Pearl. On Peppino's page there are some pics of Aunts Therese, Eva, and Donna; Robin, Jane, Deb, and Eva; and Cindy with her new tiel. She is also getting a new timneh grey, but mom didn't get a good shot of Myles. Hope you love the pics. I also hope you are having a fantastic day today, and getting lots of hugs and kisses. Hugs, Falco

Hello everybirdie. Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure Post. I know right now, I sure wish I'd brought my cell phone with me.
Jesse and Jake head across the room, following the sound of the voice, with Kiddo and Sweetpepper joining them.
"Let's grab hold and pull." The birds grip the handle with all their strength, " One, TWO, THREE!" Jesse yells and they tug as hard as they can. They pull, and pull, with all their might. Suddenly, the handle gives, and a small door springs open in the wall. " We did it, we got it open" Picabo calls out happily, as sunlight beams in through the opening. "We're free"
Jesse smiles, happy to think that they would be out in the sunlight in a minute, and soon the Castle macaw Guards would be there to help find his friends Cori and Sugar."I bet their already outside ready to jump out and frighten us as we step into the sunlight." he thinks to himself as he starts to climb through the small door.
"Come on,it's beautiful outside. I'm glad to be free to that corn maze for good." Jesse calls over his shoulder as he steps into the open again. The trees look pretty with all their colorful leaves stirring in the gentle breeze.
Quickly the others rush out through the small door and shake their feathers to calm themselves, after being in the pitch dark, dusty room. They smile as the sunlight beams onto them, and the soft breeze stirs the leaves on the ground around their feet. They start off in the direction of the Castle, looking for help in locating their missing friends. They hadn't gone very far at all when suddenly a terrified scream rose from amongst them. Every head snaps round just in time to see Cookie disappearing into the leaves of a nearby tree. The birdies yell in fright, as the trees and bushes around them spring to life, branches and limbs reaching out to catch hold of them, as they dart and twist to get free. Screams shake the air as birdies are gripped by the leaves and twigs, pulled high up into the air.
"Jesse" Elvis yells, as he dashes to stay free of a vine, trying to wrap around his foot. " help, we gotta save the others"
Elvis, leaps just in time and the vine snakes back into the darkness below the tall Oak tree nearby.
Sky dodges a limb, grabbing BB by the waist and hurrying behind a large boulder away from the trees. " You stay here, I'm going to save our friend Cookie. Sky hops,and jumps vines and limbs that fly forwards to capture him, as he works towards the tree where Cookie is yelling for help. " I'm here buddy." Sky ducks as a branch reaches for his head. " That's it. Enough" he takes out his pocket knife and cuts the vine around his foot, and snips the end of the branch as it reaches forward once more.

Happy Sunday to all my BC friends. I hope you all are having an enjoyable weekend. Thank you to each of my friends for their votes, messages and encouragement. I hope your ready for today's adventure in the Corn Maze.
"AUHHHHHH!" Sky coughs, as dusty air fills the room. "What is that awful smell? "
"I don't know buddy, but it wasn't me who did it." Jake laughs loudly, sneezing as the dust swirls and turns in clouds around them. How can that dust blow everywhere when we haven't moved?"
Looking from one to the other, their eyes big. One by one the group files into the stinky, dusty room and crowds together in the damp, blackness. "Everyone here?" Jesse asks
The room is alive with answers. " CORI? SUGAR?" No answer comes.
" Has anybird seen Cori or Sugar?" Jesse questions fearful of what might have become of them in the darkness
" After a moment of puzzled questions and answers, " NO, last time I saw Sugar or Cori was when we were by that hole in the wall, where the maggots where." Pookie and Laka reply. Laka's pretty face pales at the thought of what might have happened to her friends.
"I'll go back and look for them" Raffi says, Cinn-A-Bunn joining him, as they lave the room and feel their way back down the wall. Sky and Jesse rush to catch up, as the four boys search for their missing friends. In the gloomy room, the others stand restlessly waiting. Fearing what fate might have befallen their missing companions.
"We should have gotten to the hole by now. It wasn't this far Jesse" Cinny says
"Yeah, where did the hole go?" Raffi asks concern in his voice, it should have been back a ways in the other direction. " Let's go back, we must have missed it somehow." The four boys turn and retrace their steps. Arriving at the door frame once more they step inside. " DID they show back up?" Jesse asks hopefully. When he hears that negative responses he swallows the lump in his throat.
" I say we go onwards, get outside and go get the Castle Guards to help search. They likely found a way out and are waiting to scare us when we step out the door." BB says, looking at Sky her eyes filled with tears. " I know they're ok, you'll see" Sky pulls her close and hugs her tightly, " we'll find them sweetheart."
"Let's all check out this room carefully for the way out. Stay close so you can feel each others wings and us your feet and wings to feel for the door out of here." Jesse instructs the group. They make their way to the walls, and start to run their wing tips over the icy surface.
"I found something right here" Picabo says, touching a handle made of wood, attached to the wall in front of him. " It must be a trap door outside."

Hi friends, JESSE here once more with your BOTM POST. "WOW, it sure is dark in here" Being a boy Amazon, I have to be brave, bold and courageous? "Jenny-Lynn? You here?"
Little Angel clings tightly to Dixie's wing-tip, as she tries to think how to get out of this scary, dark corn maze. How hard can it be to chew through the corn stalks anyways?
"I have an idea" LA calls out in the blackness. We can chew through the corn stalks and climb out."
"Greyt idea LA" Jenny-Lynn says heading tot he wall and grabbing a beakful of corn-stalk. " HEY, hello? I could use of help here" she says as she pulls a piece free and throws it onto the floor. Soon, everybirdie is busily working their way through the wall of dried corn stalks. " I'm through. Come on, let's pull these piece out and get outta-here."
Sky, Jake, Jesse and Finnegan work quickly to remove the remaining wall, as the others push them out of the way. Jesse carefully climbs through and steps down onto the ground. "AHHHHHHH!" he screams in terror. "Pull me back in, pull me back in, hurry" The group of adventurous birdies grab their friend and guide and yank him through the hole into their midst. " Maaaaaagoootts" he says trembling.
"Let me at them" Boo Boo chirps up, " their greyt on bread with peanut butter"
"YUCK!!!!, OWWWWWW!! GROSS!" everyone gags at the thought of maggots on peanut butter.
"HEY, don't refuse it till ya try it" Boo Boo says grinning, a twinkle in her eye.
"Let me look" Jenny offers, sticking her head through the large hole in the wall. " YEP, maggots all right." she backs into the room, " millions of them everywhere"
Jesse calms down and shakes to make sure none got onto his feathers. " We can't go that way to get out. We'll have to feel our way and go on" He places a wing tip onto the wall, " OH, watch your step" he trips over what feels like a fallen tree limb?' He wonders to himself how a tree limb got into this hallway.
Everybirdie places their wings onto the rough wall, and inching carefully forward follow Jesse down the twisty hallway. Jesse feels his way until he reaches what feels like a wooden door frame. He stops and runs his wings over the frame, then the cold, hard door. "I found a door. It must be the door that leads us outside again."
Jesse pushes on the door, but it is stuck tight. Then in the pitch blackness, his wing touches a metal doorknob. Using both wings he turns it. Slowly it moves, grinding and clicking, as it opens the door. Jesse pushes the door and it opens noisily on rusty sounding hinges. A puff of stale, dusty air escapes into the hallway, making everybirdie sneeze. " ok, come on, we're going to get out of here. When you go through the door stop and wait until we are all together. We don't want to leave anybirdie behind."
Jesse walks into the room, followed by Jake and Sky, BB and Kiddo. They cough as foul-smelling dust rises into the air.

HELLO, everybirdie, Jesse with today's BOTM POST. I want to thank you all for your daily votes, and I really love the photos of you in your Halloween costumes. I am picking them up and will soon post them on my gallery for everybirdy to enjoy them.
Dixie looks upset and confused, scared that something had happened to his wife-bird. " They'll be there when we get back Little Angel" he kisses her beak softly to comfort her.
"it'll only take me a moment to run back, get them and be back here." LA turns to run but stops dead in her tracks. The entrance hall has vanished. A solid wall lays in its place. She spins in a circle trying to figure out where the hallway into the maze is. Finally she gives up and stands very still staring at the blackness. Dixie grabs her by the wing and pulls her to him protectively.
" Don't panic. There must be an explanation. RIGHT? SKY? JAKE?" Jesse says anxiously. He looks around to find where the hallway was before he had stopped. Confused he shakes his yellow-head and says, " OK, it's obvious we can't go back out the way we came in. We have only got two choices. Either we stay here until the Castle Macaw Guards come rescue us, or we continue to move on." HE looks at the two tunnels ahead of them. Right now, he wishes he were anywhere but here in the darkness, as a cold chill begins to fill the place where the group stands waiting.
" I say we toss a coin" Hulk says pulling one from his backpack
"Heads we go to the right, tails we go to the left?" Oki calls out
"Ok, we need to do something." Gus replies as he watches the coin sail into the air and land on the floor. " heads. We head into the narrow tunnel on the right."
"Ok, keep close together. I'll go a head a little ways to check it out. SKY!!!!! Come on, you can help me." Jesse states with concern in his voice. Sky inches closer to the entrance to the narrow tunnel. He flashes his flashlight along the narrow floor, then over the walls as far as he can see.
"It looks ok to me." He moves forward, Jesse at his side. The others wait a few minutes then begin to venture slowly into the dark hallway.
Jesse calls out to the group, " Come on, it's ok." He takes a deep breath then moves forward along the wall. HE hasn't gone more then ten feet when his flashlight begins to flicker, then suddenly goes out. "It's ok, does anybirdie have a spare light?" He asks, and listens as gasps of fright fill the tunnel. " My flashlight won't work." Chyna cries out, "Mine either" Falco says. Soon all down the line of birds the replies come back the same. THEY ARE NOW STRANDED IN TOTAL BLACKNESS.
"Dixie, I'm getting scared. Somebirdie might steal my sparkles." Little Angel says in a whisper.
"How can you think of them when we're trapped in the dark, and can't find the way back to the entrance?" Dixie asks
" Ok, I'm scared of the dark," LA holds Dixie's wing-tip tightly as she shivers in the dark. " Dixie,what if we can't get out of here?"

Hello friends, Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure Post. I am busily picking up your costume photos, so if yours is ready let me know and I'll fly over for it. IF you need some help with one, just let me know and we'll see what we can create for you. Are you ready???
The others follow, trusting that Little Angel must know what lay before them. Birdies flick on their flashlights,as they are enveloped in blackened gloom. Staying close together they step cautiously along the wall, keeping as close to LA as possible. Jesse hurries to the front of the line. Not wanting to be left behind.
"Little Angel, do you know where you're going?" he asks anxiously
"NOPE" LA answers with a flash of annoyed eyes, as she continues to slowly lead down the straight entrance wall. After what seems like a long walk but in fact was only a rather short one,they come to a sudden stop in the darkness. Two tunnels lay open before them. One leading to the right, is narrow, and appears to be clear of rocks and other hidden obstacles. The second tunnel is huge looking with many large boulders scattered around the entrance.
Jesse takes a deep, slow breath, and gazes at the two tunnels before them. He looks as closely as he dare in first the one, then the other.
"AH SKY? JAKE?, birdly-conference" Jesse yells out louder then necessary, then catches himself and continues, " can you please join me for a momenttttt?"
Sky and Jake hurry in the direct that Jesse's voice had come from. They find Jesse pacing up and down in front of the two tunnel entrances. Seeing his frother SKY and Jake, he stops in mid-stride and joins them as they huddle in foot-ball style heads close and whispering in soft voices.
"What way do we go?" Jesse questions
"Don't ask me, I'm only here for the trip" Sky says, trying not to sound too nervous himself
"Let me see" Jake says looking closely at both, " well, how's bout we toss a coin? Heads we go to the right, and tails we leave all together.?"
"Why don't we just leave the same way we came in?" Jesse says, " we can always say the pathway is blocked for repairs. Permanently"
Suddenly the air is split by a high-pitched terror filled scream. Everyone freezes in fear as Little Angel screams a second time, sending chills up and down everybirdies spine.
"What? What was it? Did you see something?" Sky inquires urgently of his fister
"NO!!!! Little Angel looks white as a ghost, " AAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH" she screams again, " I FORGOT my red and orange SPARKLES in the Castle!" she looks so upset and tears are streaming down her green cheeks. " I left them on the table in the Banquet room. I can't go on an adventure without my sparkles. Cookie gave them to me for my hatchday!"

  Hi Flanny, how's your daddy today, from Jenny Lynn
...we love you & him and your whole Christian family, especially sweet aunt Susan! There does not seem to be the same old enthusiasm on BC any more! With the threat of shutting us down, I think many feel like what's the use! We love all our BC friends and we are going to be here until the very last day, we ARE NOT QUITTERS! What happened at the pet judging goes on all the time, we have seen favoritism practiced in many forms and many times in many places! My dad could not do that, although we all like to win or at least be honorably mentioned! A true Christian heart would not ever cheat that way! We would like to think we all have the most gorgeous parrots in the world, with Christy, Jenny, and LaLo, for us, but we know better, so we'll just love the crap out of what we have, and smile at our Lord Jesus Christ and say thank you for what you have given us to love! My goodness, I hate to sound like a broken record, but it is Friday again already! Also brrr, it was only 37 degrees this early morning, but soon that will seem like a heat wave, not looking forward to those days that surely lie ahead! Dad has a plumber friend coming over today to repair two faucet leaks, and help dad with a few other things, he is on a 'fix it before Winter' kick! TGIF dear friends, I hope yours is a good one, and give my love to all the warm hearts in your sweet home, see ya tomorrow...

Love for all time, Jenny, Angel Christine, & our Dallas family
