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??.

  `Ü´ Greetings & OH! MY!! GOODness!!!
Mr Finnegan!

Does anybirdy ELSE realize how much there is to KNOW about FootBall??? Why … I had no idea how much I DIDN’T KNOW until Momma consented to help me learn for the sake of my Quest for the Bird of the Month Crown, and sharing her passion for The Game so that I might understand all of the HoopLa that I hear coming from the area of the television every time she watches a Game!!

HEAVENS to BETSY … and BACK!!!

Well! As promised, we shall begin our investigation into the individual responsibilities of the Players in each Position today. But I fear it will never fit into one day’s note. So we shall simply spread it out over several days so that you, My Featheriend, can take it all in and not fall asleep before you learn what you need to know!

You may recall from our earlier information that the NFL limits active, uniformed Players to 45 per Team on Game Day.

Each FootBall Team has 11 Players per side: 11 on Offense and 11 on Defense. Teams are allowed to play with fewer than 11 Players (and for the LIFE of me I can’t IMAGINE WHY they would WANT to???), but they are penalized for having more than 11 Players on the Field during play. Rarely, a few eggsceptionally talented Players may play both Offense and Defense in the NFL. (And I do believe that we have a few of those eggsceptionally talented Birdie FootBall Players on the Indians and Pilgrims Team Rosters!)

A typical NFL Game Day roster includes three QuarterBacks, a Punter, a PlaceKicker, a Kick Return Specialist, eight Offensive LineMen, four Running Backs, five Receivers, two Tight Ends, seven Defensive LineMen, seven LineBackers, and six Defensive Backs. (The NONSTARTING Players – that is, those who are not among the 22 or so Players who are listed in the Starting LineUp – are considered Reserves, and many of them are Specialists.)

In the NFL, an additional Player can be in uniform, but he must be a QuarterBack and enter the Game only after the other QuarterBacks have been removed from the Game because of injury. When this eggstra QuarterBack, or 46th Player, enters the Game, the other QuarterBacks are deemed ineligible and cannot return to that Game even if they are healthy.

With our very own 3rd Annual Milonga Thanksgiving Bowl Game approaching in a little over a week, and Players needing and wanting to know how to practice to yield the most effective results, when we next meet I shall delve into the individual Positions on the Offensive Squad.

Before I depart this evening, though, I do wish to thank you, once again, for your wonderful continuing support of my efforts to be your Christmas Queen on BirdChannel. I am truly beginning to feel the eggscitement of the prospect of having my dream realized. You and your featheriendship are appreciated more than you know.

A bientot, mon ami,

  `Ü´ Greetings & Good Evening
Mr Finnegan!

I am flitting by this evening for a very short visit to share with you a little bit of the great fun I had this Tuesday past presenting a program with Momma for The Sylvan Seniors at Mt Sylvan United Methodist Church in Durham, where Momma and Daddy attend. (They do not attend the s-e-n-i-o-r-s functions. **TeeHee** They attend CHURCH there.)

Momma and I were given half an hour to address the group, to share what Life with a Parrot is like, for most of them had never had an eggsperience with a companion parrot; particularly not one of my size! When we have a program like that, Momma usually starts out by eggsplaining how she and Daddy came to start a flock like the K Kritter Korral, and how it grew; and then, through sheer human curiosity, we have a wonderful conversation about what all is entailed in living with a parrot (or parrotS). Of course, I-I-I contribute greatly to program content; this time including a stroll back and forth in front of the front row at one point, for emphasis of the subject matter at hand. (At just the right point in time I climbed down off my play stand and let Momma know I had something to add. **GRiN**)

When our time for the presentation was over, the group had some lunch together. I was given my fill of some lovely white grapes by a number of brave ladies and gentlemen, and then several of them wanted to have their picture taken with me. In my Gallery at the bottom of my page you can see just a couple of the lovely folks I visited with parrotsonally.

I shall return with those promised eggsplanations of the positions of the players on a FootBall team when next I visit.

Toutes alors, mon ami,

  `Ü´ Greetings & Happy Sunday
Mr Finnegan!

It would seem that most of North America is in the middle of an early onset of Winter, wouldn’t it? There are those FootBall Fans who would call this REAL FootBall Weather! And in view of the “chill” in the air, I am bringing mugs of Hot Cocoa (with marshmallows, if you like) for us to enjoy during my visit today. But this is what I would like to inquire of you: Is this weather inspiring everybirdy to prepare for the upcoming 3rd ANNUAL MILONGA THANKSGIVING BOWL GAME??? **Tee Hee**


Today I am deviating a bit from the previous path of information about the NFL in order to address two questions that were presented by several birdies regarding my last note.

First, a number of you asked if the entire building at 345 Park Avenue in New York City was occupied by the offices of the NFL. Well … no. For an inside look at the Ted Moudis Associates designed NFL headquarters, home to the employees that help power our favorite sport, I direct your attention to the Gallery at the bottom of my Profile Page. The modern, multi-level office space is located, as I mentioned in my last note, at 345 Park Avenue in Lower Manhattan, and was designed by TMA with the goal to “carry its strong brand identity throughout the design.” The office includes a League Room for the owners of our favorite franchises to hold meetings, employee cafeteria complete with kitchen along with an employee store, fitness center for staying in shape with lockers and showers, and a whole lot more. The 4 main floors of the office building were designed to represent the “Four Pillars” of the National Football League, which include The Game, The Teams, The Fans, and of course The Innovation. The 5th floor of the building houses the Officiating Command Center, and the 6th floor includes multiple outdoor terrace areas.

Other current tenants include The Blackstone Group, Consulate General of Ireland, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Capital Trust, Deutsche Bank, KPMG, and Piper Jaffray.


Secondly, several birdies were curious about who the three “pre-NFL/AFL-merger” teams were. As nearly as I can discern, those teams were the AAFC Teams the Cleveland Browns, the San Francisco 49ers, and the original version of the Baltimore Colts.

Since its inception in 1920, the NFL fended off several rival leagues. Before 1960, the most important rival was the All-America Football Conference (AAFC), which began play in 1946. The AAFC differed from the NFL in several ways, and the AAFC's perennial champions—the Cleveland Browns—were considered to be one of the best teams in professional football during that time. However, due to the AAFC's poor financial situation, the league disbanded after the 1949 season.

  I do hope I am providing you with interesting and accurate information that satisfies your curiosity about American FootBall, its history and its structure. I am finding the details of my research quite entertaining. Are you?

I am very happy to report than Momma’s hand is much improved! While there is still a bit of swelling and light bruising on the back of her hand, she is now able to fully use her fingers with only minimal hindrance and no discomfort. Thank you so very much for your thoughts and prayers, good wishes and concern. (I believe she and Daddy have plans to purchase a new NylaBone for Mr Tyson; one that he cannot fit through his crate to deposit on the floor and cause more accidents!!!)

When I continue with the background information of American FootBall, we shall be moving along to Season and Playoff Development. I am looking forward to sharing what I have learned in that area with you.

  `Ü´ Greetings & Welcome to Week 11 …
of the 2014 NFL Season! The week “kicked off” (**TeeHee** … if you will pardon the pun) last night with the Buffalo Bills traveling to play the Miami Dolphins at Sun Life Stadium. The Dolphins won handily, 22-9. I do hope that you were able to enjoy some Stitch’s Spicy PopCorn with the Game!

It was so lovely to receive your visit, Mr Finnegan, and I thank you so very much for your vote that raises the tally toward my Quest for the BOTM Crown. And it is, once again, with apologies that I am a day late returning the kindness. For those of you who did not see the note on my page, Momma had a bit of an accident which prohibited her being able to assist me in visiting you. It involved a little mishap with a dog toy on which Momma slipped and, in the attempt to catch herself and prevent falling, she injured her hand on the door frame. It is very sore yet today, so I will not be able to leave any parrotsonal comments on my visit as I prefer doing, but will be resolved to using the copy and paste method of delivery for the time being, until Momma’s had is less sore. (It seems that she can click on the left side of the mouse without too much discomfort. The right button is a bit painful. And typing is one key at a time; not conducive to individualizing each note.) Be that as it may, she is determined to keep in step with my FootBall information for you.


Now, let’s pick up where we left off, completing the Founding and History of the NFL before we move on to Season and Playoff Development next.


UNTIL THE 1960s, the NFL was the dominant professional football league and faced little competition. Rival leagues included three separate American Football Leagues and the All-America Football Conference (AAFC), none of which lasted for more than four seasons (although several teams from the AAFC joined the NFL after the league dissolved in 1949). A new professional league, the fourth American Football League (AFL), began play in 1960. The upstart AFL began to challenge the established NFL in popularity, gaining lucrative television contracts and engaging in a bidding war with the NFL for free agents and draft picks. The two leagues announced a merger on June 8, 1966, to take full effect in 1970. In the meantime, the leagues would hold a common draft and championship game. The game, the Super Bowl, was held four times before the merger, with the NFL winning Super Bowl I and Super Bowl II, and the AFL winning Super Bowl III and Super Bowl IV. After the league merged, it was split into two conferences: the National Football Conference (NFC), consisting of most of the pre-merger NFL teams, and the American Football Conference (AFC), consisting of all of the AFL teams as well as three pre-merger NFL teams.

  TODAY, THE NFL is considered the most popular sports league in North America; much of its growth is attributed to former Commissioner Pete Rozelle, who led the league from 1960 to 1989. Overall annual attendance increased from three million at the beginning of his tenure to seventeen million by the end of his tenure, and 400 million viewers watched 1989's Super Bowl XXIII. The NFL established NFL Properties in 1963. The league's licensing wing, NFL Properties earns the league billions of dollars annually; Rozelle's tenure also marked the creation of NFL Charities and a national partnership with United Way. Paul Tagliabue was elected as commissioner to succeed Rozelle; his seventeen-year tenure, which ended in 2006, was marked by large increases in television contracts and the addition of four expansion teams, as well as the introduction of league initiatives to increase the number of minorities in league and team management roles. The league's current Commissioner, Roger Goodell, has focused on reducing the number of illegal hits and making the sport safer, mainly through fining or suspending players who break rules. These actions are one of many the NFL is taking to reduce concussions and improve player safety.

I hope having a more complete image of the beginnings of American FootBall will be of some help in adding to your enjoyment of the Sport.

  `Ü´ Greetings Mr Finnegan!
I do hope you were able to locate and read the posting Momma and I put together for Veteran’s Day yesterday. I apologize for both of us that we did not visit anybirdy yesterday. Momma had made an appointment for both me and Caique frother Sammy to have nail and beak trims with Dr Burkett, the BirdVet [and if you look him up on the internet, that is how you will find him listed **TeeHee**] in the afternoon, after she finished up with all of her other responsibilities, and during the time when we would normally have begun our visits. The greater complication arose when I became very agitated and overwhelmed during my beak trim. Dr Burkett even stopped his work before he finished all that he wanted to do because he told Momma it was not worth stressing me out further. Momma was VERY concerned because I was breathing so very hard, as was Dr Burkett.

At any rate, once we got home, and after Momma stayed with me for a long time to make sure that I was completely restored to normal, she herself was so stressed out that she was unable to settle herself down so that we could go to work delivering my note to everybirdy. Daddy and I both insisted that she just take the evening to calm herself and regain her composure before trying to go to sleep at bedtime so that she COULD get a good night’s rest, knowing full well that she would not be able to focus enough to be efficient while working on the computer and would therefore likely be up all night (being stubborn as she is) to complete the task.

What was so important that Momma would have scheduled an appointment with Dr Burkett for something as basic as a nail and beak trim right in the middle of the heightened activity of my Quest for the Crown? Well, I have a Public Appearance scheduled with the Seniors Group at Momma and Daddy’s church this coming Monday, and Momma wanted to be sure that my nails and beak would not be off-putting when they wanted to hold me. (And everybirdy ALWAYS wants to hold me! **GiGGle**) Besides, I-I-I always insist on looking my best when I have an appearance in front of the public.

It is so kind of you, Mr Finnegan, to come to call yesterday and today. I do so appreciate your visits and your votes. Please be sure to thank your momma for me, for helping you support me.

I shall look forward to visiting again tomorrow when we shall complete our Founding and History of American FootBall, and then move on to Season and Playoff Development the next time.

  `Ü´ Greetings, Mr Finnegan ...
and Welcome to “Monday Morning QuarterBack”, the show that brings you interviews, highlights, and FuN and informative tidbits of information on everything from The History of FootBall to each play and position on a Team. Actually, Monday will not be the only day we broadcast (nor will it always be seen in the morning), but it’s a catchy title for the program, is it not? **GiGGle** [OoPs! That wasn’t very professional. Well, moving right along … ] On today’s program, we pick up where left off last week in our discussion of the beginnings of American FootBall.


FOUNDING AND HISTORY
On August 20, 1920, a meeting was held by representatives of the Akron Pros, Canton Bulldogs, Cleveland Indians, and Dayton Triangles at the Jordan and Hupmobile auto showroom in Canton, Ohio. This meeting resulted in the formation of the American Professional Football Conference (APFC), a group who, according to the Canton Evening Repository, intended to "raise the standard of professional football in every way possible, to eliminate bidding for players between rival clubs and to secure cooperation in the formation of schedules". Another meeting held on September 17, 1920 resulted in the renaming of the league to the American Professional Football Association (APFA). The league hired Jim Thorpe as their first president, and consisted of 14 teams. Only two of these teams, the Decatur Staleys (now the Chicago Bears) and the Chicago Cardinals (now the Arizona Cardinals), remain.


The Akron Pros won the first

APFA (NFL) Championship. [Y-a-a-a-Y Akron! Momma’s HomeTown!!!]
Although the league did not maintain official standings for their 1920 inaugural season and teams played schedules that included non-league opponents, the APFA awarded the Akron Pros the championship by virtue of their 8–0–3 (8 wins, 0 losses, and 3 ties) record. The following season resulted in the Chicago Staleys controversially winning the title* over the Buffalo All-Americans. In 1922, the APFA changed its name to the National Football League (NFL).


* The 1921 NFL Championship controversy, known among Buffalo sports historians and fans as the Staley Swindle, is a dispute in which the Buffalo All-Americans unintentionally surrendered the 1921 APFA Championship title to the Chicago. The controversy began at the conclusion of the 1921 season, when the All-Americans finished the season with the best record in the American Professional Football Association. However, after losing what the All-Americans owner had intended to be an exhibition game to the Staleys on December 4, 1921, the All-Americans lost their title to Chicago on a tiebreaker.


And that’s where we will have to leave you for today’s program, FootBall Fans. Be sure to tune in again for our next program where we pick up the conversation on the Founding and History of American FootBall.

  `Ü´ Greetings & Happy Weekend Mr Finnegan!
.
And how are you faring on this lovely Saturday evening, My Featheriend? In my last post, I alluded to the familiar saying, “Man [and LadyBirds and their mommas] plan, and God laughs!” Well, Father God is having a BELLY LAUGH today on The K Kritter Korral!!!

The first thing this morning, on a day that Momma was absolutely certain would be a day in which we could easily visit each of my featheriends at a leisurely pace, she needed to phone our Kittys’ Veterinary Hospital once a-g-a-i-n and make an appointment for a DIFFERENT KITTY from last week’s visit to be seen immediately. This morning it was Mr Larry Kitty who was having difficulties and throwing up multiple times; and it concerned Momma greatly. Momma and Daddy took him to see Dr Ken at the kitties’ new Triangle Clinic in Durham and once again Dr Ken gave our kitty an injection to make him feel better. It does seem to be working, and Momma is more at ease about the situation now. But the whole turn of events has, once a-g-a-i-n, set us behind schedule.

Ah, My Sweet Featheriend Mr Finnegan, there is nothing to forgive. (Though if you feel badly enough to ask, I shall more than gracefully grant you my forgiveness.) I am thankful for any and all visits you are able to make. I simply enjoy receiving you and our conversations. Please tell your momma that she need not put herself out if her schedule is too demanding to bring you to call every day. I shall miss you, but then I shall look forward to your next visit all the more!

And now, without further ado, I shall move immediately to Part II of “The History of the NFL”. Yesterday we talked a bit about how the League was born, and how it reached its current structure. Today we shall take a brief look at how the Teams are regulated and Championship Records from previous Seasons.

  EACH TEAM IS ALLOWED
to have up to 53 players during the regular season, but only 46 can be active (eligible to play) on game days. Teams are given exclusive rights to sign free agents* that have three or fewer seasons in the league, but free agents that have been in the league at least four years can sign with any team of their choosing. Each team is subject to a salary cap**.

The champions of the most recent season, the 2013 season, are the Seattle Seahawks, who defeated the Denver Broncos by a score of 43-8 in Super Bowl XLVIII. The team with the most championships is the Green Bay Packers, who have won 13 championships. The team that currently has the second most Super Bowl championships is the Pittsburgh Steelers, who have won six.

In an earnest effort to keep my notes to a minimum, I shall bring this portion of our investigation into FootBall to a close for today. I hope you have enjoyed learning a little bit of the foundation of America’s BIGGEST Sport. I most certainly have enjoyed bringing it to you.

Have a lovely day. A bientot, mon ami [See you soon, My Featheriend]

PS: Momma says that we will most likely be taking a break from visiting my Featheriends on Sunday. Rest assured, however, that just as you are so kind and loyal as to stop by and at least cast your vote to assist in my Quest for the Crown, I shall also return the kindness and drop off a vote for you. It is my pleasure to do so!


DEFINITIONS:

*free agent – A player who is eligible to sign with any club or franchise, i.e. not under contract to any specific team. The term is also used in reference to a player who is under contract at present, but who is allowed to solicit contract offers from other teams. In some circumstances, the free agent's options are limited by league rules. (The term came into wider use after the league stopped using a "reserve clause", which provided a repetitive option for a club to renew the contract for one or more years but did not allow the player to terminate it.)

**salary cap – An agreement or rule that places a limit on the amount of money that a team can spend on player salaries. The limit exists as a per-player limit or a total limit for the team's roster, or both. (The league implemented salary caps both as a method of keeping overall costs down and to ensure parity between teams so wealthy teams cannot entrench dominance by signing many more top players than their rivals.)

Greetings & Good Friday Morning, Mr Finnegan.

Once again, what Momma and I had planned for today’s note has been foiled by circumstance! However, THIS time, it is a HAPPY circumstance. Let me eggsplain. The first thing I had intended to do was to eggstend my parrotsonal invitation to you to hurry over to The Milonga Page (#165848) to sign up to be either a Member of one of the Teams to play in this year’s 3rd Annual Birdie FootBall Milonga Thanksgiving Bowl, or to participate as a CheerLeader for this year’s Game. WELL!!! As of Mr Kiddo’s visit Wednesday evening, I was informed that there had already been 31 Birdies sign up to be Players, and 10 to be CheerLeaders! So, at this point in time, with the deadline to sign up having been midnight YESTERDAY (Thursday, November 6) what there is to do now is to BE SURE to mark the date on your calendar, November 29th, to attend this wonderful Annual Event and root for your favorite Team to win; either the Pilgrims or the Indians. As my frother, (Ö> Jake would be prone to say here, “Be there, or be SQUARE!!!” **TeeHee**

Thank you so very much, Mr Finnegan, for your visits and your votes. It is so comforting to know that I can count on seeing your handsome face on my page each day. I truly appreciate all your support. And I have conveyed your kind greeting to Momma. She smiled!

  Now, moving on …
to today’s planned History of the National FootBall League, this may serve to give us all a clearer picture of our American FootBall Heritage.


The National Football League (NFL) is a professional American football league that constitutes one of the four major professional sports leagues in North America. It is composed of 32 teams divided equally between the National Football Conference (NFC) and the American Football Conference (AFC). The highest professional level of the sport in the world, the NFL runs a 17-week regular season from the week after Labor Day to the week after Christmas, with each team playing sixteen games and having one bye week* each season. Out of the league's 32 teams, six (four division winners and two wild-card teams**) from each conference compete in the NFL playoffs, a single-elimination tournament culminating in the Super Bowl, played between the champions of the NFC and AFC. The champions of the Super Bowl are awarded the Vince Lombardi Trophy. Various other awards exist to recognize individual players and coaches. Most games are played on Sunday afternoons; some games are also played on Mondays and Thursdays during the regular season. There are games on Saturdays during the first two playoff weekends. Sometimes, there are also Saturday games during the last few weeks of the regular season.

The NFL was formed on August 20, 1920, as the American Professional Football Conference; the league changed its name to the American Professional Football Association (APFA) on September 17, 1920, and changed its name to the National Football League on June 24, 1922, after spending the 1920 and 1921 seasons as the APFA. Following the NFL's merger with the All-America Football Conference at the end of 1949, the league adopted the name National-American Football League, but reverted back to National Football League three months later. In 1966, the NFL agreed to merge with the rival American Football League (AFL), effective 1970; THE FIRST SUPER BOWL WAS HELD at the end of that same season IN JANUARY 1967. Today, the NFL has the highest average attendance (67,591) of any professional sports league in the world and is the most popular sports league in the United States. The Super Bowl is among the biggest club sporting events in the world and individual Super Bowl games account for many of the most-watched television programs in American history. At the corporate level, the NFL is a nonprofit 501(c)(6) association. The NFL's executive officer is the commissioner, who has broad authority in governing the league.


At this point, I shall conclude my History Lesson for the day. I shall pick up with the balance of the lesson with my next note.

Have a lovely day. À la prochen frois, mon ami [Until next time, My Featheriend]

  `Ü´ *Ruby perches with Mr Finnegan.
Her head slightly lowered in humility.*

I am so sorry, My Dear Featheriend, that I did not make it here yesterday for a visit! Tuesday was not a day of plans fulfilled at The K Kritter Korral. I have no eggscuse. But I would very much like to offer my humble eggsplanation, if you will allow it.

Here Momma and I sat down and composed my note for yesterday (which you will find posted below) by way of request for your patience and understanding for a somewhat diminished Campaign for my Quest for the Bird of the Month Crown … and then we were not even able to fulfill THAT!!! I do, most humbly, apologize. **BLuSh**

You see, by the time Momma and I had everything set and ready for me to strike out on The Campaign Trail (as it were), anything and everything that could possibly interfere … DID. Daddy is still at home from work with his illness, making his best effort to recover before returning to work so that he does not have a relapse, and he needed Momma to take care of some eggstra tasks that he would normally have handled himself. And then there was our oldest furry feline, Mr Taggart, who DID have a relapse in his vomiting that Momma and Daddy had him treated for last Saturday. This will require another trip to his Dr Kitty Vet, probably today. Momma was very concerned and felt that she needed to keep a close eye on him after several episodes of vomiting and therefore had her attentions diverted from our project here on the BirdChannel.

I am beginning to feel very much like the broken record, having to ask once again for your forgiveness for my neglect. I do hope you will understand. And I absolutely appreciate your kind indulgence of our flockily’s circumstances.

SO … All that being said, Momma and I are attempting to get an early start on my visits today in order to be sure that, no matter what the interruptions may be, we will be able to see everybirdy today!

Ah, Mr Finnegan, I must wholeheartedly agree with your momma, we Fids are most definitely addicting! And MY momma's got it B-A-D! **TeeHee**

That is very interesting that Granddaughter is a hair stylist for the infamous Mr Manning! (Perhaps at some point she could save a lock of his hair and your momma could send it to my momma! **GiGGle**)

You know, one can adjust the "temperature" of Stitch's Spicy PopCorn. Momma cannot consume anything that is too hot either, so Daddy goes easy on the pepper that he adds to the oil. You might suggest to your parronts that they start off using just a little; so little that they might think it isn't enough. It is far easier to add more the next time you make it than to have a bad eggsperience the first time and NEVER have the chance to ENJOY it. Be sure to let me know if they choose to eggsperiment.

Here we go! Wish us luck!!

`Ü´ Your Featheriend,
Ruby Francesca Begonia

PS: The note that follows this one is what I had intended to leave for you yesterday, had I been able to visit as I had planned.

  `Ü´ Greetings & Happy Tuesday [before Threesday]!
Hello Mr Finnegan!

I know you must be anxiously awaiting the “Kick Off” of the FootBall themed blogs that I have promised to carry us through this month on my Quest for the Bird of the Month Crown. And Momma and I have been embroiled in deep research to “Get this party started!”. However, it is already becoming painfully (and I make that statement quite literally) obvious that composing a new blog and creating a new picture for each day of the month is far more than Momma is going to be available to help me with. As you can already tell, we in The K Kritter Korral are hard put to understand the concept of a “short” blog. It is a very time consuming process for me to dictate to Momma all that I wish to communicate to each of you every day, not to mention an equal amount of time to create a picture to compliment my blog; and even more time consuming to return the kind visits you make to my page to cast your wonderful votes to support me, all of which is above and beyond my fondest dreams.

But I have convinced Momma that it is far too much to fit into every single day in addition to being available to take care of all of us, our home, our daddy, and all of her other responsibilities. So she and I have reached a compromise. We will continue to work diligently to bring you the planned Information and FuN we fully intended from the very beginning of launching my Campaign, however that type of blog will be produced only about every other day. On the off days, such as today, she and I will give it all of our available time and energy to simply return your kind visit with a Thank YOU Vote, and [hopefully] a short blog to return your lovely comments from the day before. I do hope that I am not disappointing you too very much. But I have the feeling that you understand our situation completely, and that you will not be upset, but will be willing to continue your daily support. And I will, as you already know, be MORE than thankful for your efforts!

And with that lengthy eggsplanation, I shall bid you Adieu for today, and tell you that with tomorrow, we shall begin to eggsplore the first days of The National FootBall League.

Toutes alors, mon ami [Until then, My Featheriend] ...`Ü´ Ruby ♥

I'm so glad that you had a good time at the show. Of course everyone would love you. Mom says you are a sweetie giving her kisses and talking to her.
Wow, your parronts will have a busy day tomorrow. Hope the other shows go well for all of you too.
Still getting used to the time change :(
Today the snow melted, the sun came out and it was 48 degrees. One guy said we will have less snow but cold temps this winter and the next one said it will be like last winter. I vote for summer all year!

  Hi Finnegan
We hope you had a good time at the bird show, and showed everyone there how sweet you are.
Well, the Steelers are finally playing up to their potential! They soundly defeated the Ravens last night, and they looked fantastic doing it.
I have a bat story for you today: mom had fed the Big Brown bat in the RVS room on Friday and sealed his cage. Bree said he escaped either overnight, or in the morning when she went in to clean and feed him. This morning mom found him on the floor in the rat room,* cold, dehydrated, and looking almost dead. She picked him up, put him on the heating pad at the bottom of his cage, and finished with the raccoon in there and the other bat. Then she did her outdoor raccoon cages, and came back to see if he was okay. She took him out, he drank about 2ccs of water, then ate about half of what he usually does, and looked considerably better. Mom was so happy he ate and drank, she did her little happy dance right there in the RVS room!
*The rat room is where the center raises rats, mice, and mealworms, as well as any other live food they need (think goldfish for herons).
Anyway, the bat looks much improved, and mom said if they needed her, she'd go back later and try to feed him some more.
Tonight mom is going to meet her friends Gene (from Germany, he's here again), John, Frank, and Ginny. They will have dinner at the Casbah, which serves middle eastern food.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of special attention. Hugs, Falco

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

  `Ü´ Greetings & Happy FootBall Sunday to You!!!
Thank you so very much for visiting and voting for me today. I appreciate yours and your fister's support more than I can say.

It is good to be remembered by old Featheriends. I have thought about Miss Daisy often too. I do so miss visiting between our flockilys the way we used to. Thankfully we now have the perfect eggscuse to catch up, don't we?

I do hope that you have been able to enjoy watching a game or two today. Which Team is your favorite? Momma and I just LIVE to watch Peyton Manning and The Denver Broncos each week during the FootBall Season! (Parrotsonally, I think Momma has a big *CRuSh* on Mr Peyton. **GiGGle**)

Of course, we Fids of The K Kritter Korral are actually much more interested in what Sunday afternoon FootBall games mean for US …

I’m sure you’ve heard at least one of us mention our flockily’s favorite, Delicious Stitch’s Spicy PopCorn once or twice in the past. I thought today I would share the recipe for this bird safe treat with you and your flock so that we might ALL be able to enjoy it during the rest of this 2014 FootBall Season.

To give you just a little background on where the recipe comes from, Miss Stitch was one of the first birdies to befriend my Rainbow Bridge Fister, (~> Rosalie Hale Bopp, nearly 7-1/2 years ago. (Miss Stitch is on page #15308, if you would like to stop by later and say “Thank you!” for this wonderful concoction.) At any rate, Miss Rose and Miss Stitch were in conversation one day, and Miss Stitch happened to mention that she had enjoyed some of her momma’s Special Recipe PopCorn while watching a FootBall game. Well, OF COURSE, Miss Rosalie jumped right on the opportunity to inquire about this lovely sounding treat, and Miss Stitch was very happy to oblige with the recipe. After Momma and Daddy searched for a PopCorn popper that could be dedicated to the recipe (you will understand why after you actually read the recipe!), they made a batch and shared it with Miss Rose and Mr TidBit, the only other parrot in The K Kritter Korral at the time. From there, the size of the batch of PopCorn that Momma and Daddy prepare has blossomed as the size of The K Kritter Korral has grown. Currently, it takes THREE PopCorn poppers to accommodate The Flock AND Momma and Daddy for a game! **GiGGle**

And now, without further ado, I give you the recipe; which I hope you will enjoy at least as much as my Flock and I do!

  STITCH’S SPICY POPCORN
(In Her Own Words)

“There are a few different ways to make it but first off I have my own popcorn pot. Mommy has a couple of them; one for me and one for the family. Mine is seasoned just right. (Once you put the oil with pepper in the pan the next thing you cook is going to be spicy too! That is why I have my own pot!) She puts pepper flakes or diced peppers in the pot with some oil. [Momma and Daddy just use pepper flakes here at The Korral.] You can use "popcorn" oil or you can use regular corn oil. Mom likes to use corn oil as there is a bunch of yucky stuff in the "popcorn" oil. You know ... additives and weird stuff like that. Mommy does not like me to have that. So she just uses the corn oil and puts the pepper right in it and lets it "sizzle". Add a sprinkle of cayenne pepper. Sometimes she puts in a dash of chili pepper too. Then she puts in the popcorn. [Daddy always puts just a single kernel of popcorn in at first, and waits until it pops before adding the rest of the popcorn. That way he knows that the oil is hot enough.] She sprinkles some Parmesan cheese over the top after it’s popped. But no salt...not good for us.

‘YUMMY!! Let me know how you like it! Aloha! Love Stitch ~:)”

[When Momma and Daddy make the PopCorn for us, Daddy dumps the popped corn from the popper into a paper grocery bag while Momma holds it open for him. Momma shakes the parmesan cheese onto it in the bag, folds the top of the bag down, and shakes it up to make sure the topping gets on all the pieces. Then she gives us each some from the bag. THEN she can add the salt for her and Daddy’s share.]


And there you have it, My Featheriends! The recipe for the Treat that we in The K Kritter Korral love the best!! I do hope that you will be able to convince your parronts to make you some; perhaps for Monday Night FootBall this week!? I hope you enjoy it at least half as much as we all do.

  `Ü´ Greetings and Happy Halloween, Mr Finnegan!
And Miss Lucy Blue too!

It is I, Ruby Francesca Begonia; the GirlBird who is dreaming of being voted the Bird of the Month for December. I don’t suppose you remember me now … Dooooo You? *GRiN*

I have been a member of this BirdChannel Community since August the 2nd of 2007. I am actually the Official Flock Leader of The K Kritter Korral; not that loud beaked frother of mine, (Ö> CR Jake, as HE would have everybirdy believe. It is understandable, though, that everybirdy would think that, since he does seem to have more to say than any of the rest of us in the flock.

I am just stopping by today to say “Hello” and to introduce myself (or Reintroduce, as the case may be) to everybirdy before my “Run for the Roses” commences tomorrow. And I am also inviting you to stop by my page (#35469) each day during the month of November to see what Momma and I have been able to come up with to entertain you and make it worth your while to cast your invaluable vote to help me attain my goal. Because, as everybirdy knows, this coveted Award does not just fall out of the sky each month. It takes work. And a desire to have a LARGE AMOUNT of FUN to make it happen.

And FUN is precisely what I intend to conjure up for everybirdy, as much as a GRITS GirlBird can. **TeeHee** I say that because, you may have noticed that my way of speaking may seem just a bit odd to you. That is because a “GRITS” GirlBird stands for a GirlBird Raised In The South, as I was; and as you may well know, we Southerners have a distinct way of speaking. I hope I will not be too formal for your tastes, and that we will all be able to have a great time … even if it does take a bit of getting used to. I shall try my hardest to give you all a good time!

Also by way of introduction, you may or may not recognize me as a partner with Miss Alex of the La Habra Flock in The Pretty Rose Flower Shop (Page #188440). If in no other way, you may recognize who I am from your having placed an order or received a Floral Gift from our Shop at some point. If that is how we have met, I do hope we have served you well and that you will give us many more opportunities to do so again in the future.

But I ramble on. Suffice it to say that I hope what Momma and I have planned for you for the month will be both fun and interesting. And, at this point, I also wish to thank Mr Jesse, the October candidate for November Bird of the Month, for his kind invitation for all of you to come play with me during his reign.

À la prochen frois, mes amies [Until next time, My Featheriends]

PS: It is SUCH a pleasure to be visiting with your flock again, Mr Finnegan. I am hoping that my activities this month will help to make that a much more regular occurrence for me and the rest of my flock here on BirdChannel again; just like it used to be.

  October BOTM POST number twenty-five
Hello everybirdie, Jesse here with my final BOTM Adventure Post. Tonight is a special night with Ghosts, and witches, Ghouls and every manner of scary beasties. It's Halloween. I want to begin first by saying THANK-YOU to all my many BC friends for their loyalty to daily voting, words of encouragement and some funny lines I used within the story Adventure. It's never the same without your friends to share in all the fun. I had a lot of fun exploring the BC Castle Corn Maze with you. I can't say I'd love to do it again like my fister Little Angel would, but doing it with you made it more fun and less scary all the way through.
A very special thank you to Queen Angel Girl, my beautiful African Grey fister for an awesome Milonga Halloween Castle Tour. She did a greyt job even if she is busily learning FELIX'S "eye of disdain" for our trainee, Momma Deb. I hope I was able to make up for the missing blogs in Angel's campaign due to all that took place with our beloved Sassy.
I want to remind you to please make sure to go over to play at RUBY's page # 35469 during the month of November as this gorgeous Macaw Lady-bird entertains and educates us during her very own BOTM Campaign. Let's give her all our BC support on her quest for the Castle.
"OK, I did my speech can we go now?" Jesse asks
"YES JESSE, you can go!" Momma Deb says with a nod and smile
"OK, COME ON TRICK OR TREAT TIME AT THE CASTLE!!!!!!!!!"

Queen Angel Girl watch as her friends dressed as witches, wizards, super-heroes and all sorts of very cute creatures spread out for the annual Halloween eve fun. Candy is hidden all over the Castle.
"One hint" one of the Macaw Guards says as we get started, " there's lots of candy hidden in the CORN MAZE!"
"NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" scream the birds, " we don't want candy that badly"
"Just joking, it is hidden allover the Castle, and every room has someone there handing out candy. Go to the Games Room first we put SKY there, and he says he Loves candy." Queen Angel says with a laugh.
"Come on everybirdie, time to have fun, then we can play games. There's bobbing for apples, ring toss and my favorite spin-the-bottle" Jesse says smiling as he looks at Falco and how beautiful she is tonight.
The birdies spread out all over the Castle trick or treating, filling their bags with Nutri-berries, peanuts, sunflower bars and candies. Little Angel helps Dixie, as she carries the bag for them from room to room. " We sure have lots in our bag Dixie" Little Angel pulls their bag along the Castle hallway. We'll have candy to last all year.
" SKY!" BB says making him jump, " did you eat ALL those candies yourself?"
"NOPPPEE" Sky mumbles through a beak filled with popcorn-balls and pickles?
"Come on, let's go find more candy" BB says taking Sky by the wing, " you better stop eating so any pickles before you turn into one. Again!"
Jesse 227428

  Hi Finnegan
It's always nice to see you when you do get online, don't worry if mom is too busy for awhile.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYBIRDIE!
Mom cleaned the RVS room again today, and fed that little bat. She thinks they will have another bat by Monday. Someone called from Laurel Caverns to report a bat with a broken wing, so Jill will go to meet it tomorrow and see if we can help it. They are so precious and important to our lives all over the world. Did you know there are about 8000 kinds of mammals, and bat species make up over 2000 of them? That's right, a quarter of the mammal species on earth are types of bats. They help to keep insect populations down, pollinate some foods, and spread seeds from some fruits, depending on the species.
Okay, that's enough of the teaching moment, Bats are spooky, ooky, and have a ton of old wives tales around them, too. Let's debunk a couple of them. They will never fly into your hair, unless you are harboring bugs in it. Bats use their eyes and echolocation, so they avoid things like hair and bumping into trees. They are not blind, either, most can see as well as humans can at night. One cautionary note, bats are rabies vector species, so if you come into contact with one, be careful not to touch it with bare hands.
I hope you have a day of treats with a few tricks thrown in just to keep you on your toes. Have a great day today, and don't get sick on candy! Hugs, Falco

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

Hi everybirdie, Jesse here with our second to last BOTM Adventure Post. Please remember to vote for our dear friend Ruby #35469 starting on November 1st. No doubt she has a really fun and interesting campaign ready to share with us all.
I looked eggcitedly at Tango, dressed as a Fairy, and hope rose in me that perhaps lacking a Wizard that the Book of Spells would listen to her and help save our friends.
Jenny-Lynn reads the spell to herself and takes a BIG breath. " We need to lat every bird out in order from biggest to smallest. Then we have to read the spell and Tango twirls her magic wand, just so, and I think, it should work."
"Oh, we have to make this work. I don't want my Poppa Sky a pickle forever and ever" BonBon says a tear in her little black eyes.
"It'll work. It h as too." Jesse says, certain that if anything was going to work, then the Book of Spells was it. " Let's lay everybirdie out. The book says, Biggest to smallest. So we start with your Poppa Sky and go down from there to the tiniest one."
Carefully the remaining birdies placed their friends in a line on the Castle floor. It took some rearranging but eventually everyone was happy with the order, and certain everybirdie was set according to their size. " OK JL, now what do we do?" Spot asks
" I read the Spell, and that should be it." Jenny-Lynn replies. She re-reads the words before starting out loud. "Let every whatnot that was what-so, turn once more from whence it goes to where it now should be!"
Tango flicks her wand and the room flashes with light, and bells chime, smoke puffs up and "WHAMO" everybirdie is returned to themselves. " Oh, I'm me again" Cookie says, " hey Lizzie, you almost ate me" Lizzie shrugs her shoulders, "I was hungry" Kiddo returned to himself once more looks everywhere for Sweetpepper but she is no where to be seen. " Where's Sweetpepper?" he asks sadly, then realizing that Cori, Sugar and the others aren't there either he turns to Jesse.
"We must get the Macaw guards and return to the Corn Maze to find our friends!"
"FRIENDS?" asks Tango
"yes Sugar, Cori Cydney, Snowflake, Gus and Pepper. Apache, Sweetpepper,and our friend Pearl are all missing. They simply vanished while we were in the Corn Maze."
Just then Kiddo and Jesse hear laughter and chattering coming from outside in the Rose Garden. Everyone follows them as they rush out the door of the Magic Room into the sunlit beauty of the Royal Gardens. There, all their friends are relaxing, laughing and enjoying themselves.
"What happened to all of you. We have been worried sick that a monster got you." Jesse asks
"Monsters?" Sugar and Cori reply, " NO, DIDN'T YOU GUYS SEE ALL THE EXIT SIGNS?????"
"Exit signs?" Sky asks confused, " what exit signs"
"There were signs all over the place that said, " this way to the Castle" Gus exclaims, " you must have seen them?"

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.......
