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

Hi! My name is Finnegan

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

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

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??.

Not that hot out today, only around 80 but the dew point and the humidity were in the mid-60's so you know it is very sticky and very damp. YUCKO! Tomorrow is supposed to be worse. She is definitely going to get out to the bank, and then pick up some groceries from Trader Joe's, and drop off the rent check. September 1st! Wow.

Other than that, not much else going on. Me and Mom day. Love it!

I too will be missing on the BC soon. Probably still blog until the 8th ... then we will be moving and I don't know when we'll have the net.
Hope your mom has a safe and fun trip.
What a cold weekend. The family reunion went well. I stayed home with skinsis. It's been a busy day.

  Hi Finnegan
the hummingbirds are still coming to the feeders but their numbers have slowed down. mom just made a new batch of nectar which should last about a month. we have seen hummingbirds come as late as November. not many but they must be stragglers coming from the north. we got a light sprinkle of rain during the night but we need a lot more.

love Boo Boo

  Heya, Finney!
We were up to 73 here, and it has been grey and damp to boot. The sun came out a bit this afternoon, and when Mom was coming home it was getting ready to set. It was a brilliant red, so we figure that is due to the forest fires out West. She so wanted to get a picture of it, but was driving and could not get to a spot where she had a good view of it to stop and snap one. It is dark now, too. Guess that means we have fall time coming. Supposed to heat up over the next week, so I am pretty sure I will get to the market. I know I will get to the vet for my nails and wings on Thursday. I think I need the nail trim, too--been chewing them and making them into little points. Did I tell you Mom is not impressed? Yeah.

Wing hugs coming your way!

Hope the picnic was fun, and that mom has a good time in CO.
Mom got to the pool yesterday for an absolutely glorious summer day. Today it's supposed to thunder and rain, but it is looking good so far. Of course, this is Pittsburgh where the weather can change in 10 minutes. People around here can have the heat on in the morning, then the AC on for the afternoon, and umbrellas out for the evening.
We don't have a lot to write, hope you are having a great summer day and getting lots of cuddles and sunshine. Hugs, Falco

  Heya, Finney!
Kim is one of Mom's friends from her nursing days. Kim is also an RN, and they have kept in touch since Mom last worked with her in 1999. They worked together for nearly 20 years, too. Kim had a bad episode of endocarditis a couple years ago, and ended up in the hospital/rehab/hospital/rehab for about 8 months after. She was very weak, and ended up with a huge bedsore that was awful. Kim ended up needing a walker to get around, and became totally disabled after everything. Mom takes her out every week, either to the doctor or to do something fun. They love to shop, but the place has to have an electric scooter or it is a no go for Kim. Anyway, Kim's knee was acting up (gout) and she was not feeling really good, so Mom brought her lunch. And missed another fried of theirs by about 5 minutes. It makes Kim's day much brighter, and that is cool.

Hope you will be getting lots of attention while your Mom is gone to CO. Who takes care of you??

I hope you had fun at the picnic. Summer time is busy for us too here.Hope your mom has a fun trip to CO.
Another pretty day here in the burgh thought the humidity is creeping up. I got a bath and a sun bath today again too. My light above my condo is on a timer so it comes on in the morning and goes off in the evening when it is time for my night night. Well the days are getting shorter already so I am ready for bed before that light goes out. Let me tell you once it goes out I leave out a noise so mom knows too LOL. I mean if I didn’t tell her she would never notice I don’t think,,,what that woman would do without me is hard to even imagine! I am the one that keeps her straight I think LOL. “Our paths may change as life goes on but the bond between friends remain ever strong.” Left a vote for you my friend~ hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Another gloomy day with NO sun and rain tonight. It did get up to 72 but, didn't feel like it.
I will be off the internet on Saturday night. It's family re-union time.
I'm having lots of internet problems tonight.
Don't forget to cheer for American Pharoah on Saturday's Travers Stakes in Saratoga NY.
See you on Sunday night.

Mom went over by Kim today and brought lunch over for her (Pad Thai) and they had a nice visit. Kim's knee is still sore, and she was not feeling too good. Mom came home after--she was going to go to the store but she decided not to when it started to rain a little. She says she can go to the store anytime now. And she brought me some Pad Thai and rice back--makes a guy happy! Love that stuff!

Not a lot happening here. Nice outside, sunny at times, and we hit a high of 73. Nice to have the patio doors open again! Tomorrow will be nice again here, but thunderstorms are supposed to hit later in the evening. Don't care about that, as I know Mom will be home and I will be on her shoulder if that nasty lightening happens!

  Heya, Finney!
We are so far below the normal temps, Mom had to put on the radiator heater for me! We got to a high of 64. It was dull and overcast all day until around 6, when the sun came out. Mom and I took a nap--and when the sun started to come out a little, I decided I would snore a bit so Mom would wake up. Did it once. Nothing. Did it again, nothing. Tried it again. She made the whistling sound that happens when someone snores. So I did it one more time and she whistled, and then she was laughing. Of course, I had to take a bath after that. Mom says I have more feathers and feather dust, so she knows how good it feels to get clean.

Just another wonderful day with Mom!

OH! The Milwaukee Lion is back! Two sightings so far! It is a mountain lion according to the sighting today. It is in Mequon, which is a suburb to the north/northwest of the city. Both sightings were in the early morning, and were in the same general location (about a 20 minute drive from where Mom lives). The areas are very close to the Little Menomonee River Parkway and the Mequon Nature Preserve. Great areas to hide in, for sure.
