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

7 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 from Flitzer
Hope you're doing great.

Soon we will be full-time on the other site.
I'm looking forward to being in 1 place instead of 2.

I love the BC but we need to bid it farewell.

So happy with all the friends we've made.

Dad reluctantly gives me strawberries - He hopes I'll eat them, but mostly I like to decorate my cage and the wall and make everything a nice sticky strawberry-colored mess. It's so much fun.

Hello from Buffalo.
Daddy is all over the tummy-flu, but is seeing doctors on other issues. His blood pressure is very high - and has never been a problem before. Lotsa readings, tests and more doctor visits ahead.

Dad and Uncle JJ went to a special showing of Jacques Demy's French Musical Film:
"THE YOUNG GIRLS OF ROCHEFORT" (1967) on The Big Screen the other night. it was magical. A great turn out for an old French film on a Monday night - 45 in attendance.

Update: Dad and Uncle Geno got me food and treats and toys at The Bird Show.
Sadly, Dad's tummy attacks started again - just when we thought it was done. He can't keep any food down and need to be near the bathroom all the time. This bug is not fun.
Maybe I can *squawk* the bug away.

Dad did get out w friends on Wednesday for an organ concert and silent movie at the old Riviera Theatre, home of the 'Mighty Wurlitzer'. They showed "GIRL SHY" with Harold Lloyd from 1924. A wonderful evening.

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.

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.

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!

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.
