I visited a bird store where the birds were free flying and she flew to me and claimed me. After several visits, to be sure, I couldn't resist..

Hi! My name is Cookie

I am a Green-Cheeked Conure from Kalamazoo, MI.

Snip-it; Sniper

5 years old   F

Green-Cheeked Conure

Anything I am eating. Doesn't dislike any food and yet still maintains her slim figure.

My shoulder. My head. My lap. My plate of food.

Toffee, our Senegal. The cat. Not getting ALL of the attention. Toffee has flow away and the cat has died. Now my silly human has brought two new birds into MY house. What was he thinking!?

He lets me fly and play whenever he is home. He holds me whenever I nudge his cheek! He lets me take showers with him.

Luring Toffee over for feather preening and then nipping Toffee's foot. Singing "Cookie! Cookie! Cookie" in the shower.

Even though her flight feathers were trimmed, my precious Cookie flew into a door on Saturday and suffered severe head trauma. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers. She seems to be blind right now but she is eating and drinking. She is such a wonderful, vibrant little buddy. Give your birds an extra hug tonight.
Cookie is doing MUCH better but HE now has diabetes insipidus. Result of the head trauma. I am so thankful for having such a good friend!

  Happy Thursday from Flitzer
Another Wintry Day here - temps rise for rain and a rain/snow mix in Buffalo, NY

Then temps crash for the unforeseeable future - causing all wet surfaces to be icy and slippery again.
Dad keeps using the word "hibernation"...silly guy, he's not a bear.

Make it a great day ==Flitzer

Happy Tuesday. 'bout 5" of snow and bitter-cold chilly temps, but we missed the Big Storm in Buffalo.
I was not on lock-down all day Monday - even though I didn't step-up for Dad, I did go poop in the right place, and that was good enough for Dad to let me roam the house. Yay

We had a sudden, unexpected ice storm late Saturday afternoon. Freezing-Drizzle mixed with snow coating everything - making an icy world. Dad changed his evening plans to stay inside.
We had popcorn!

Dad has to go out a lot today - but sadly, instead of temperatures going up to melt the ice, the temps have fallen to keep everything slippery n nasty. Hope he doesn't fall.

Hope you have a great day. ~Wings Up~

Hello Cookie!
Today was the first day in a long time I "stepped-up" on Daddy's hand and went to the proper place to poop. Daddy is thrilled. I hope this means the end of my moodies for a long while.
A busy weekend ahead. Sending all our love. Flitzer and Dad. ~Wings Up~

-yet another snowy day in Buffalo, NY.
..........
We are near two Great Lakes [Lake Erie and Lake Ontario].
"Lake-Effect-snow" happens when the winds pick up the lake water and throw it at the City.
People have asked why we don't live in a beautiful spot, lakefront. Heck, Dad is shoveling lots of 'Lake' right now!

  a cold cold Buffalo Hello from Flitzer
Hey, Cookie -

Coldest Day of the Year so far. Daddy made it to the gym, but he's probably going to stay inside. Cold, High Winds, Snow. Wind-Chill Warnings below Zero.
Daddy was in-and-out a lot yesterday, helping friends and doing things. We did get some play time. I'm still refusing to "step-up" when he commands, but I do go to my cage when he asks [which is new 'cause I used to only go back into the cage when I was good and ready].
He can't say I'm disobeying, at least with the cage part. I'm still in my moody-mode, but trying to get along better - and I show my love to Dad all the time.

How is your beak doing?

It's Monday again. We had a nice weekend.
Daddy is missing his hugs and kisses, but we play and I do grant him some affection.
Hopefully we'll be back to normal soon.

After a very warm Sunday - in the 50's, we will have a windy and bitter-cold week. Hopefully not much snow here, but still unpleasant. Spring is far away yet.

Happy Saturday. A cold an wintery weekend in Buffalo. Dad has plenty to do at home this weekend, so we'll get a lot of together-time.
--
I'm still moody and bitey in the morning with my hormones. This has been going on almost two weeks now - Dad is wondering when I'll be back to being "normal bird". I do show him affection when I choose to, but I know he's frustrated with me....

Hi, Cookie -
Hope you had a nice Christmas.
Flitzer is still bitey and moody - I can't wait until this passes. He hasn't started a molt yet - but that's what usually brings on this behavior. We are on Day 4 of him biting at me. He did have a slight fright when he fell flying to his cage yesterday - and he let me hold him and calm him then. Otherwise it's 'Hands Off'.
Sad Dad

  From Flitzer's Dad
Hi, Cookie -
Bad Timing.
Flitzer's Dad here. Flitzer is in one of his "hormonal" states.

For a few days he seems to be going on double-speed.
He gets very feisty, vocal, and also aggressive.
Instead of 'stepping-up' he'll attack me and I'll end up with a shredded hand.

Flitzer is his happy-self at a distance, but I can't get hear him. I'm sure his Winter molt will begin soon.

Was hoping for his 'sweet, cuddly' side for Christmas, but instead I have "attack-bird"

Merry Christmas from Mr. Hyper-Bird, and Mr. Bloody Hands

Dad was in and out Saturday - went to an Art Reception with his artist friends, visited the Museum which was all decorated for Victorian Christmas, and later joined friends at the Annual Christmas Dinner at a local Italian Restaurant they love.
--
In the evening he brought his friend, JJ, over here to see a scary film called "The Babadook" on Instant Video. I was with them for a bit - but the sounds frightened me, so I retreated to my 'Happy Hut'.

  Hi from The Flitzer-bird!
I like Popsicle Stick Toys, and toys with little round "Bagels" I can chew.

Dad has bought me many toys that I find "decorative" for my cage but I don't play with them.

I'm more thrilled with a plastic spoon - love those.

  Happy Saturday from Flitzer n Dad
[From Flitzer's Dad:]
I caught Flitzer climbing up the wall to visit Jesus. There is a plaque of Jesus as the Good Shepherd with His sheep on the wall - heavy plaque hanging on a little nail.

Although I appreciate his Spiritual curiosity, I was afraid that Jesus and or Flitzer would come crashing down.
Looks like Flitzer is certainly a Christian - lol
Perhaps he was interested in the flock of sheep around Him -but either way it was a funny scene.

Happy Friday, Cookie, my friend!

What a great Thursday we had.
We started with "Flitzer Coffee" [I get a small taste],

we played "watch Dad chase after the balls", and later we had "Cuddle time".
Dad always wants to cuddle - silly man - he doesn't get that cuddling is strictly on My whim and My Say-so.

Hope you have a wonderful day.

Hello from Buffalo. We are well, but many South of where we live continue to dig out and continue to struggle from the massive storm. Now the temps are rising and they're getting some melting - adding weight to the snow on their roofs. They are encountering flooding and collapsing structures. Please keep them all in prayer.

Daddy and I are well -helping friends and neighbors on light errands where we can.

Daddy is going to The Buffalo Philharmonic tonight. Why he doesn't stay home and cuddle with me and listen to music on the radio, I don't know. Oh well, we'll have time together earlier today.
