After we lost our precious, little Daisy, I was at the Bird store and saw him in one of the cages. I had wanted an ekkie for quite awhile. So I asked about him and learned that he needed to be rehomed. His previous owner had two seriously ill children and had to give him and his flockmates up. He was only two years old and just starting to talk. He was very scared the first time he was taken out of his cage. However, I visited him almost everyday for a month. He soon began to look forward to our visits. He also began to recognize me when I came into the store, and wanted to come out and visit me. One day my husband was with me and asked me when I was going to bring him home. So I wrote out a check, ordered his cage and made arrangements as to when I'd pick him up. It was an excellent decision. He's a delightful, wonderful bird and is very happy in his forever home. He said about three phrases at first. Now, 5 years later, he says about 3 dozen different things, including telling our ringneck, Princess, to "Stop it!" when she's shrieking. He loves to talk and has the cutest little voice! My favorite is, "I go poopy, Mama. I'm a GOOD BOY!" He does, too, and he is!! He's potty-trained..

Hi! My name is Finnegan - Will you be my Valentine?

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

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

8 years old   M

Solomon Islands Eclectus

CHEESE, pecans, CHEESE, grape juice, CHEESE, apples, eggs and just about ANY FOOD Mama and Daddy are eating! Did I mention CHEESE? Oh, and I almost forgot, blueberry yogurt, yummm!

My boing, the baker's rack out on the sun porch (when the weather's warm) and my playstand. I also like to hang out on the fold-down door of my cage, and of course, my fav...on Mama and Daddy.

Touching my head or my back with your hands.

Mommy and Daddy love me SO much that they share their food with me. I get to try so many new and delicious things. What bird wouldn't love that? I LOVE to eat, so that's really high on my priority list. I love to take showers with Mommy, and she and I constantly talk to each other. She's taught me many new words and phrases. I love to talk to Mommy, but not Daddy, although I'm getting better about that. Mommy gives me lots of kissies, too, and I say "Kissy" and make the kissy sound. In all, I say about 30 different things now.

I LOVE being blown dry with the hair dryer after my shower with Mama. I talk a lot, but stop talking when my Daddy enters the room. Best of all, I am potty trained and tell Mama when I have to poopy. I don't happen to think that's quirky, do you?.

What's for dinner??.

  Hi Finnegan,
Today I want to talk about where my mom is from. She grew up in a little town called Hilo pronounced (hee lo). The name of Hilo is an ancient one, its origins lost in the mists of time. One of the widely accepted origins is that Hilo was named for a famous Polynesian navigator, Hiro, perhaps in honor of his great skill in bringing his people to this rich and fertile place.

The first night of the lunar month, just following the new moon, is known as Hilo. The think crescent moon is on the eastern horizon as the sun rises, its shape reflected in the curve of Hilo Bay's crescent shaped black sand beach.

No story of Hilo is complete without mention of the three names for Hilo. Hilo-one refers to the part of Hilo fronting the black sand beach, where shoreline activities like fishing and canoe launching took place. Hilo-Hanakahi, the fertile food-producing land south of Hilo Bay was named for a beloved chief who ruled here during a time of peace. The formidable cliffs that run north from the mouth of the Wailuku River are known as Hilo-pali-ku. Hilo was considered waiwai, or wealthy, due to its abundance of fresh water.

A charming folk tale has long been told linking Hilo to King Kamehameha, a great warrior, whose chief ambition, which he lived to realize, was to become the ruler of all the Hawaiian Islands. Naturally, he had numerous enemies, and he never remained long in one place for fear that the some of them might learn about his whereabouts and attack him.

Okay now for some fun stuff. Today is Sunday and it is spelled Lapule pronounced (la-poo-lay) in Hawaiian. The month is February and it is spelled 'Ianuali pronounced (yah-new-ah-lee) in Hawaiian. Have you got it? :)

Just say it slow and it will come, soon you all will be eggsperts in speaking Hawaiian.

Tomorrrow is spelled i ka la 'apopo pronounced (ee kah lah ah-poh-poh) in Hawaiian.

We shall finish or pau/(pow) in Hawaiian with good afternoon or aloha awakea (ah-low-hah ah-vah-kay-ah)or (midday).

Mahalo a Nui Loa (ma-hah-low ah noo-ee low-ah) or Thank you very much for your love and support.

Here's a vote for you and hope you all have a great Lapule afternoon! :)

Love,

Laka Aolani, Candidate for BOTM

  Hi Finnegan
The contests are usually announced on the calendar page and/or the milonga page by Kiddo or another member of the milonga team. Keep going there to see new contests monthly. There isn't always a contest with the milonga, but often there is. Sometimes the folks in the kissing booth hold contests, too, so check there every 2 weeks. Sorry you missed this one, Lucy's pic is adorable.
We now have images of pterosaurs on all of our pages. Mom tried to photograph the book on Pterosaurs, but it's shiny and that didn't work well. We got some images from the AMNH website to show everyone, and if you want to look it up for yourselves, this page shows a lot of what's in the exhibit and the book. We're just teasing you with a few images. You can go to AMNH.org/pterosaurs and see for yourself lots of what's on display. There have been about 150 different species of pterosaur fossils found, ranging in size from ones that will fit in your hand to Quetzlcoatlus northropi, which has a wing span about the length of a city bus and weighed between 180-250 kilograms! That's 550 lbs. at its heaviest. He stood about the height of a giraffe.
You might be able to access some of the short movies that are being shown, too. One big thing to remember is that they are NOT dinosaurs. They, like crocodiles and dinosaurs, all belong to the archosaur family, but they are cousins, at best. One of the things mom loved seeing is that they all had a fine hairy coating, probably to keep them warm.
I hope everyone wasn't bored by that, mom is finding them very interesting. Don't forget to vote in the milonga contest today and every day. I hope you are having a sunny day today. We are, and the temps are already in the 40s, but we know the cold is coming back soon. Make sure you get lots of attention today! Lots of cuddles and scritches should be coming your way. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Finnegan,
Tonight I want to talk about Madame Pele, the volcano Goddess of Kilauea Volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Legend has it that the lava flow will never come down to the Hilo side or the Kona side as long as the "Hawaiians" are in check. So to speak.

That's why there are Hula Halaus that have ceremonies at the volcano to leave offerings of food and other stuff but no hooman sacrifices. Which is good. :)

There are many legends at the volcano observatory that have written testimony from hundreds of tourists that have taken a trinket from the land and have fallen into lots of bad luck.

Be it a rock or black sand or something minute, everything from the Aina or land has to stay here. Once taken off the island the person or persons will have terrible terrible bad luck.

Many of them had since sent those things taken sent back to the island ASAP.

There are warning signs about taking anything off the island. All the written testimony proves that the legend is true.

Tourist beware, or prepare to have terrible bad luck. Indeed the Madame Pele spirit of the "Aina" or land is so true and strong.

That's like Mr. Glen Grants stories in his book "Chicken Skin" tells all and then some it's very true.

Happy weekend everyone and a vote for you too.

Love & Aloha from Hawaii. :)

Thank you for you votes and support.

At least we saw sun this morning. In the afternoon, the rain started and hasn't stopped yet! I'm still waiting around wearing my swimsuit and flip flops. Looks like one more week of low 60's ....brrrrrr. The only eggciting thing we saw today was a cute brown bunny eating our lawn.

  Heya, Finny!
Oh wow, we think that your folks processing the deer themselves is something. We have not had venison because Mom is a bit leery of the wild taste. Done like your Mom does, well, Mom would try it. We used to have a place that sold it fresh, but it got really pricey. This is the first time we have seen fresh in ages, some places sell it but it is frozen.

Mom went to get her feathers cut today, and her hairdresser said she loved the website. And sounds like Mom could get on as a consultant for other stuff that her hubby does. That would be cool. It sounds like there is a lot of stuff in the works. Guess we shall see. Then Mom said she wanted to see the hubby's laptop--it has been in to Best Buy 8 times in two years for issues. Mom says she wants to see what the problem is when he gets it back.

Then she made soup today. Oh, boy! I knew the minute she took that stock pot out that something good was gonna happen. Just got done having my second nibble at it (buried the beak the first round). Just yummy!

Hope your Saturday was awesome and you got lots of good Mom time like I did.

Wing hugs coming your way!

I want to give a very big thank you to SweetPepper & her sweet mom for making my awesome Valentine's Milonga pic! Thank you sooooo much!!!

Mom left for 1 1/2 hrs today to get some supplies for Livi's science fair project. Mom is going to her house tomorrow morning to start working on sugar crystals. Livi is in a girls' basketball league so mom has to work around her practice schedule. I'm sure not going to like being in lockdown every time she leaves! Mom's world is supposed to revolve around ME!

I hope your day was a good one!

The thunder never scares me either.Oh yes the bowl baths are always lots of fun. Boy we sure do have lots in common Finnegan!
This morning I kept flying to mom and she would let me sit on her shoulder and help her. She was just messing with making a card so it was no big deal. Once she got done with that and I flew to her she held me and said I was going to get a bath since it was time so we did that . I got a pecan for my treat so it wasn’t a bad trade off and then I got wrapped in my fluffy towel and went in the bathroom when I got my feathers blow dried. Oh that sure makes a fid feel great. Of course I kept thinking all day and begging too for another pecan but mom wouldn’t budge…if only I could get that refrigerator door open I would help myself!! “Our hearts decide who is family” Leaving a vote for you ..Frothter, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Oh, Finnegan
I am so sorry, but the deadline to enter the contest was yesterday. Actually all you had to do was post a blog on the milonga page saying you wanted to enter, and I would have picked up the photos and had them numbered and loaded. I hope you and your mom and Lucy are not too disappointed, but you can certainly come and vote for the ones that are loaded.

Yep, the voting has begun in the February Valentine's Milonga Pic Contest (hefty title, isn't it?). We are already getting lots of votes, so I want to thank all the voters and remind everybirdy else to get their tailfeathers on over to page #165848 and support your favorites. There are four categories, so four votes per flock per day. That's a lot of votes between now and the 17th, so get busy.

It is nice here today, but so far not quite warm enough to get outside. However tomorrow they are predicting a high of 80, with 80 or a little more through Friday. The warm weather is greyt for my sunbaths, but there is not a drop of rain in that forecast. That is not a good thing at all.

Mom got her new book from Amazon to replace the one I chewed up, so she will be making a run to the library today. I will be losing her for an hour or so, and nobirdy to blame but myself. Phooey!

When Cookie was king, he added the library to the castle. If you want to find it, go to the calendar page and look below the daily listing to find Places Of Interest on BC. The page number will be listed there. There are all kinds of neat books listed by BC moms, and of course, many are about birds.
We finally got some pics posted of the new chair: the first pic in the gallery is a close up of the pattern, but doesn't show the colors well, so the second one is the colors. The pillow on there is one mom cross stitched a few years ago. The third pic is mom's left hand, new polish.
Mom was at the museum today doing another spotlight of Archaeopteryx for a couple of hours. It was much more relaxed than last week, though. She only saw about 90 people. It's always fun to do those spotlights, because there are lots of interesting questions and comments.
The weather today is in the mid 40s, it's really sunny and pretty, too. We think that's not going to last long, though we can't complain about winter this year. It's been really mild.
Now that mom is home, she's ours, all ours, for the rest of the day! We hope you will all go to the milonga page and vote every day for each category. If you don't have the page number, go to my aviary and hit the biggest avatar, the pink and purple one.
Have a great day today, get lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Finnegan,
Sorry I didn't get my blog out today as mom had an interview lunch time and they made her wait for a few minutes then told her to come back in 15 minutes. Plus mom had to feed the meter but forgot her phone at work so she drove a block and then came back. She had to kinda walk far so when she came home she took a long birdie nap.

She didn't get up till 6 pm, what a snoozer I tell ya!

So tonight I'm gonna talk about Iolani Palace that's in town.

It's full of antiques and portraits of the past king and queens and other Hawaiian descendants also.

Mom took a ghost walking tour one night long time ago and one stop was at the palace and the tour guide was a renound ghost guy.

At one end where the princess was being held he said you could smell her perfume blowing in the breeze. And everyone on the tour could smell it and got chicken skin. Down the street was an old building that was an old morgue back in the day and that's why people in that building has eggsperienced things moving or missing.

The spirits are alive and moving there. Mom never worked in that building, well not since she heard about that.

The ghost tour ended up in the graveyard in town which was appropriate being a ghost tour an all.

Mom enjoyed it and so did her friends.

In my gallery you can see the palace and also other pictures.

Now you know if you ever go by the palace on the east side corner, try and see if you can smell the princess perfume. You'll be amazed, mom was. :)

That's all for tonight as my typist is getting sleepy.

More tomorrow and I thank you for your votes and support.

Here's a vote for you also.

Mom is pretty sure she read Rascal a good while ago. Kiddo says to put hot pepper on the suet and wont bother the birds but will burn the mammals tongue so will leave it alone then.
This morning mom and I washed clothes and sheets and then we dusted and swept up the floor. I supervised from her shoulder and know she would of not done as good of a job with out my help. When mom was all done with that she got my lunch and then started cleaning the refrigerator and the freezer on the frig too. There was lots of nuts up in the freezer and other goodies that I kept trying to get my beak into. Once that was all cleaned out mom started taking all the shelves out and every thing on the shelves. By then dad kept coming into the kitchen and being in moms way too. Mom suggested he take me and go in some other room so she could get done LOL. Finally it was all done and put back together again even with mine and dads help LOL. “Our hearts decide who is family” Leaving a vote for you ..Frothter, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Heya, Finny!
Nah, Mom uses a template and software to make changes to it and make things look good--though most folks would not change the template as much as Mom does (hehe). She loves doing that kind of work. And let's hope the soup is the winner!!!

Today Mom went to her mechanic as she found some type of bracket under the car. It could have been from the owners parking in her spot for a short time, or feel off something, but since it was sort of under the car, near the muffler, she figured she better get it checked. They could not find anything there. As long as she was there and they were not busy, she got an oil change and then went to get popcorn at the apple orchard store, and then ran to Meijer for grapes and bison--they had ground bison! She loves the stuff, so I know that we are gonna have some yummy bison burgers. Panther and his flock can relate how healthy bison is, we are sure.

Then she came home and we had a lovely afternoon together. The best!

I hope the soup was a hit!
We had a few snow flurries this morning, but it's all clear and sunny now. It's supposed to warm into the mid 40s tomorrow, too, but today's high is only around 38. It's been a mild winter so far.
This morning mom and Asmita, another volunteer, had the Runs to clean. That is an area where some of the education animals live, and there are some rehab patients in there too. The education animals in there are the turkey vultures, Sid, Vince, and Tony, and the 5 turtles. There are also some snapping turtles in there, a beautiful male mallard, a porcupine, and a broad winged hawk. It's always an interesting place to clean, because you never know who's going to be in there.
Mom is going out to dinner tonight with her sister, but she's ours for the rest of the day. We put some of our latest reads on the library page for anyone who's interested. I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

you would think I5 publishing would let us know if the magazine will be available.

mom spent all afternoon grooming our older cat. first she tried to get as many mats off of him without pulling her hurting him. she tried to cut them in half and then pull them apart and then try and brush them out. one of the mats had a stick in it. then mom gave him a bath with tearless conditioning cat shampoo and then put a coconut cat conditioner in his fur. then she tried to brush some more mats out. then after she towel dried him she blow dried him and he seemed to enjoy that. his fur wasn't dirty at all and he doesn't look any different after all that but he must feel better. then mom wanted to brush him some more but she misplaced his brush or else he hid it from mom so she would stop. then after dinner she gave Cori a nice shower and then bow dried her. moms sys her feathers feel very soft now and she spent about an hour preening herself after wards. i watched all this in horror and thought to myself thank god its not me

Mom went over to see her granddaughter Olivia for 3 hrs to discuss her science fair project. Mom had the nerve to put me in lockdown! Livi is so excited to be growing crystals for her project! Mom showed her different crystals on websites. They are going to do at least 10-12 different crystals. Mom said that I don't get to help at all...how rude! She said that boiling water and birdies don't mix! For the crystals that will be made using chemicals will be done over at Livi's house...NEVER any chemicals used around me! Mom is going supply shopping tomorrow and Livi & she will start working on crystals over the weekend. The science fair is on March 7th, so hopefully they will get a lot made by then!

Oh, I had only begun to attack those $20s! Mom went into the bedroom to change the sheets. She was only gone for about 5 mins. If she would have been out of the room much longer there wouldn't have been much left! One of my favorite things to chew up is mom's clothes baskets! I've chewed them so much that the clothes bulge out of the holes!

yes mom was not upset when my leg band came off but she would of liked to had it or at least the numbers that was on it. It was pretty incompetent of the store never to record that mom thought anyway.Mom had told the store she wanted the band removed before she left the store with Gus when he was going home but they lost it and that never happened anyway.At least I didnt have to go through the trauma of having it removed so that was good.LOL.
Mom has been making the suet for the wild birds and dad has two holders down on the trail he puts it in about every other day. Well things were going good and the wild birds were enjoying it and the other day a limb was broken down and the one suet holder was empty and on the ground. Dad got the one tractor and got in the bucket of it and went up high and hung the feeder. Well today he went down to check and here is was down on the ground again and empty. Dad thinks it’s a raccoon stealing the wild birds food so now he is going to put it up in a different area and see how that works. Poor birds probably arent getting much of it but guess the raccoon has to eat too LOL. “Our hearts decide who is family” Leaving a vote for you ..Frothter, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

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

  Heya, Finny!
Hehe! I bet after a hard work out, that soup is gonna taste might good, and the workout will burn off the calories even after they are done exercising. And yeah, cheese is wonderful. I am not fond of the broccoli though.

Mom and I had a nice quiet day here. She is excited as the website she was working on is now up and running on the internet. It is not done yet, but just the fact that it is uploaded and functional is greyt. And the guys she did it for are happy with it. Gotta admit, she loves it too. Hopefully it will get the rest of the information in it and can be working to help bring in business for them. Hope so.

Wing hugs from your buddy,
Kaji

  Hi Finnegan,
Well, so far we've gone to the north shore of Oahu and seen the big 24 foot waves and boy was it windy! :)

Today we are going to Hanauma Bay (pronounced Hanau-ma). It's a nice cove that's a fish and aquatic sanctuary. It used to be free but now everyone has to pay to go in.

Mom has passed by and from the hill looking down the water is prestine blue and clear. Before you could feed the fishes and they sold frozen peas for you to feed the fishes. Mom heard that all the fishes are tame since they are fed regularly. They come up and rub your legs as you are in the water. Never heard of anyone getting bitten by them tame fish. You never know one might just get a little too greedy and take a chunk of flesh to see if it tastes good.

Anywho, maybe when one of the BC parronts come down to Hawaii, mom will actually have a reason to go there and feed the fishies.

The picture of Hanauma Bay is in my gallery thanks to Cookie's mom, Momma Mary. :)

Love and warm hugs to ya'll in the cold states.

Also a vote for you.

Aloha a Hui ho! Till. Tomorrow! :)

Ahhh, we had another sunny day of 86 and the pool was 84! Lunch was out on the lanai with my parronts. They saw a young gator today ... in a water filled ditch next to the road. George Gator was out getting a tan next to his pond .... a good day for all.

What a beautiful day, our temps were 64°/47°, the average temps are 36°/21°! Tho it's going to cool down again, a high of 40° tomorrow.

Mom is going to be busy for the next couple weeks. She'll be helping Livi, her 7 yr old granddaughter with her science fair project. They are going to make several different kinds of crystals. Mom said that I get to taste the rock candy crystals, yummm!

I hope your day was a good one!

  Hi Finnegan
The chair is here! I landed on it first thing, but mom chased me off. I don't know why. We'll post a pic later. Willie got 3 new toys for his hatchday, so he was happily making toothpicks last night.
Today we are writing a short blog, because mom is meeting a couple of other retired teachers for lunch. She has to be there at 11:30, so it sounds like the old days at school. We are hoping they will have more than 20 minutes to eat, haha! After that, she has a ton of errands to run. We need wild bird food, she needs to return a gift, check out what happened to her Barnes and Noble membership, get to the bird warehouse here and buy more pellets, and a few other things. We think she'll be gone all afternoon, even if lunch is only 20 minutes long.
I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of attention as is your right! Hugs, Falco

  Heya, Finnegan!
We missed the snow so far--got rain, and sleet and some snow mixed in this afternoon. Mom had a meeting with her hairdresser's hubby about the website and of course, it started to do the rain-sleet-snow when she had to run from the car into Starbucks (she is not a fan of their coffee, but he loves it). Got good info and is working on that. But I am being ignored (Mom says no way!) and I am acting pretty grumpy today. I don't like her leaving to go anyplace. Spoiled, huh?

Wing hugs coming atcha!
Your buddy,
Kaji

  Hi Finny
We have only seen one live wild pig and 3 road kill. They have all been in the same area. We live one block away from a very large preserve. They have pig hunts in there. I guess they sometimes decide to try and cross Tamiami the main highway!
Phil says we will have an early spring! Well, we have one more day of summer weather and then back to chilly for a while. It was 82 and sunny today. We spent most of the day on the lanai and pool area. The parronts went swimming and I stood guard, see my new pics. I had a fun day.
Hugs

  Hi Finnegan
Thank you again my dear friends for the Hatchday wishes and for BOTD honors! I had such a great Hatchday and it was wonderful to be queen for the day! Tho I must admit that I have my mom so well trained, she treats me like a queen every day!

Some friends asked me about two of my pics, so I'll answer in my blog.

In my one pic I chewed up two $20s. She put all the pieces into a baggie & went to her bank. Mom explained what happened & showed a pic of me. All the tellers came over to see the money shredding birdie & had a good laugh! Mom left with two unchewed $20s. Mom no longer leaves money on the table!

The other was about shreddable pinatas. They are my favorite toys! Mom always gets me a parrot & a horsie (or donkey). I always bite the face off first! Then I bite off the hanging string & destroy the rest of it on the floor!

I hope your day was a good one!
Love & a vote
