Hi! My name is Cookie

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

Snip-it; Sniper

6 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!

Hey Cookie.

Dad leaves on his trip early early Thursday May 5th.
He'll be returning late on the 9th.

Although it SOUNDS like a short time, it will be an eternity for both of us.

Hello, Cookie, Folger and Dante. cool morning in Buffalo.

Dad busy cleaning, moving things, and getting things changed so men can measure front windows for much-needed replacement. The windows don't open and it gets oppressively hot here in the Summertime.

Those Quadruple-Berry Muffins were wonderful the other day. Dad knows how to make me happy from beak to tail.

I was very good for Aunt Maria on grooming day. I did flit across the room for a moment and landed in a plant [yeah - they laughed at me], but after that, I was still and patient for the grooming.

Dad is making preparations for his May trip to see Grandma in Kentucky. He will be there for Mother's Day and on Derby Day as well. [I'm suggesting a flowered hat, but he doesn't like the idea].
When Grandma calls on Sunday I call to her, sometimes making their conversation hard to hear.
"I'm here, Grandma, it's me, Flitzer". She often wonders how Dad can live with me. Ha-Ha.

Aunt Kathy, the bird-sitter will be checking in on me. Last time, we were both miserable to each other. Dad is asking me to PLEASE TRY and be good. We shall see...

Hi, Cookie!

A perfectly wonderful weekend here in Buffalo.
Dad took me outside in the Travel Cage both Saturday and Sunday.
It was great seeing the outdoors and feeling the sun. We took a walk and visited friends in the neighborhood.

The Spring Milonga was fun, but Dad had to step away before the end, that's why I seemed silent for a while.

  Hello from Flitzer's Dad
Flitzer's Dad here with the tail [tale] of an (almost) lost bird
- - - - - - - - - - -
The house got quiet - and I couldn't locate Flitzer. I looked everywhere, calling his name.
No sound. No response
--
I know he had been in the video cabinet - as my DVD Sleeve for "THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA" was shredded all over the place.

He did not make any sounds when I called, nor when I rattled the DVDS.

After searching the rest of the house - I started taking out DVDs from the cabinet. For sure he was hiding back there. Keeping perfectly still.

Thank Goodness he's OK - Sometimes it's tough being a Dad!

Love from Buffalo, New York.
We had a warm, sunny Easter weekend - is was so pretty and wonderful
Sadly we're back to cold rain, high winds and threats of ice and snow.

Dad and Uncle Geno saw a great movie the other day: "REMEMBER" (Dir Atom Egoyan) STarring Christopher Plummer. We read disappointing reviews, but we thought the film was Excellent.
Being a "smaller" film, I'm sure it won't stick around very long. We highly recommend it.

1. Bananas MUST be hand-fed.
2. Between each bite, I go into my "banana-dance" and Dad MUST follow my moves and prepare to feed me my next bite of banana. [Repeat dancing, then next bite]

Dad made the mistake of putting jelly beans in the candy dish.

Bad Ice Storm last night - Dad is staying home with me all day today - Hurray!
We don't mind snow - but ICE is another story....
Living in Buffalo is all about watching the weather - planning around the storms and dodging bad travel if you can.

Dad was generally plesed with The Oscars.
'SPOTLIGHT' was a good film and deserved Best Picture. Leonardo DiCaprio deserved an Oscar sometime - even if this wasn't his best performance. It would have been great to see Stallone win, but Rylance was wonderful in 'Bridge of Spies'.
The show itself was awful: Three hours of beating up on talented White People....not what The Academy Awards is about. We feel we deserve and award for enduring this mess.
3 hrs insulting Talented White People - and then - an Asian Stereotype Joke - - Really??
