Lucky for me, mom likes even numbers. Prior to my arrival, she had a three-conure flock which meant one more was needed and that space was reserved for me. Like the other conures who joined the McFlock before me, I was adopted through the Quad City Parrot Society. The coordinator knew that my mom wanted a Sunnie so called her when I came in. Of course, a new adoptee here is welcomed with the understanding that it must be a two-way adoration—betwe- en human and bird, and more importantly, bird to human. When, within the first twenty-four hours I managed to give mom a royally good pinch with a whole lot of attitude to go with it, mom wondered if maybe I wasn't as equally excited about my being here as she was. But within days and with time to adjust to the crazy zoo that I've moved in with, I've come to the conclusion that this may very well be the place for me. In fact, I've even taken to following my new mom around, offering a foot in friendship (and a hope that I'll get some quality top-of-the-head "mom time"). It's good to be Home.. Awards

Hi! My name is Riza •v•

I am a Sun Conure from M., IL.


"Riza" is pronounced rye zu.

8 years old   F

Sun Conure

Banana Chips! I'm the only one here who likes them so there's always some left behind in everyone's bowls.

My side of the little bird room on my collection of branches. And when I get to sit on mom, her right shoulder. It has to be the right shoulder.

A hand or other beak near the dish I'm TRYING to eat out of. And no one near my sleeping space. Otherwise, I'm cool with whatever you want to do.

Update: I'm adding Jensen or Kirby sitting on MY mom. I'm about to get the nickname "bouncer" for running them off when they dare to fly to her head or shoulder.

I'm thankful that a homeless bird was given a chance over a baby bird. (One was about to be reserved when the call came in about my needing a new home.) I like that even though I'm a part of a large flock, there's always time set aside for just me. I live for those precious moments!

Instead of sleeping inside my Sleepy Hut, I'm now wedging myself between it and the side of the cage. It doesn't look comfortable but it is, trust me..

Sunny Side Up!.

  Hi Riza!
I am so happy to hear from you! I know that the summer can be hectic and it is hard to get our Moms to type for us.

Mama has been busy getting "That Boy" ready to depart for college on the 19th. I've been helping her wash and fold all of his new college sheets, blankets and towels. I even tried to put my mark on one of them by putting a little hole in the towel, just to remind him who is boss around here. But I was caught just in time by Mamas quick hand.

Next week, the family is going the beach one last time before he goes off to school. Faithful Aunt Lisa will be coming to take care of me again, of course.

Well, that was certainly quite an adventure flying that you had! I am glad you didn't have any lift, so your poor Mom didn't have to climb a tree to get you down. Better keep those little wings trimmed!

That's about all for now. Enjoy your day and I'll speak with you again soon.

All my love ~

  Hi Riza!
I just wanted to fly by and leave you a quick note to say "Hello" and tell you that I love you! I have been having problems getting on BC for the past few days, and I couldn't even see my messages. I can now, and have instructed Mama to write down your page number so that we can find you if the same thing happens again.

The family is going away next week to the beach, so Aunt Lisa will be taking care of me while they are gone.

I hope you are enjoying your summer so far, and have been able to get out in the fresh air.

I'll be back for a visit when my typist returns from vacation.

All my love ~

  Hi Riza!
Well, Mama is finally back in the swing of things...sort of! Her foot is much better but she is still wearing that ugly black boot. Hopefully, when she visits the dr tomorrow, he will let her take it off for good. I don't like it at all and try to bite it whenever I can get close enough. The other day, I got onto the floor and ran towards it, beak snapping and wings flapping. Luckily, Mama caught me in time and scooped me up before I reached the ugly thing!

We had bad thunder storms here last night. I was sitting on Mama's knee in the sun room when they started, and I didn't even flinch. I hope the weather has been good in your area.

When I signed on to BC today, I did not have any of my previous messages. I hope it is just a glitch and not permanent.

Well, that's about it for now. Hope you are doing well and being a good girl.

Talk to you soon ~ Love,

Martini (:>

  Hi Riza,
Sorry for the lack of notes but Mama has been off her feet due to the surgery for 3 weeks now. She is going back to work next week, so I will be back then for a proper chat.

Happy Memorial Day!

Love you!

  Hello, Riza!
How have you been since I last spoke with you? I've been a little bad lately, squawking and squawking. Maybe it's the time change or more daylight hours. All I know is that I have not been a good boy at all!

We have now finished with all the college work, "That Boy" will be attending a small private college here in WV. This past weekend, he went with Mom and Dad to the college for early course registration. He applied thee because it offers a five year MBA program/degree. Later on, he hopes to attend law school and become a corporate attorney. He seemed very excited about it. After that, they went shopping for college dorm room stuff. I did not go along on the shopping trip. Mama said I would be a bad boy, so I stayed at home and took a nap! I think the nap was way better than the store would have been!

Next Monday, Mama will be having surgery on her left foot. Seems she has a stress fracture on the top of it and it is causing her a lot of pain. She will be on crutches for a week, and possibly out of work for two weeks. I wanted to tell you this because I may be absent from BC for a week or two, or until she feels like signing on to the computer.

Not much more to tell. I hope you have been behaving better that I have. I'll be back to visit you as soon as I can. Until then, I'm sending you a big hug, all my love, and of course, a vote!

  Hi Riza!
Have you seen any more robins this week? I have, and am complaining loudly about them flying around! Last evening while I was sitting on Mama's knee in the sunroom, I saw some funny little black birds with long pointed yellow beaks pecking around on the lawn. I puffed up really big at the window and tapped my beak against the glass, but they didn't pay any attention to me. Mama said they were most likely looking for worms and asked me if I wanted her to go out side and get one for me! Well, I just cocked my head to one side like I didn't understand her. Thankfully, she didn't get one for me! I think I will just stick to my pizza crust, Nutriberries and Craisens and leave those yucky worms to the outdoor birds!

I hope you are having a wonderful day today, Riza!

Sending you my love, a big hug and a vote!

Be back soon............

  Hello, My Riza!
Thank you for your note! I, too have tons of feather pins growing all around my face, and they sure are itchy! Mama tries to help me with them but I just get mad at her when she tries to help.

I wish I could come to the Bird Barn and snuggle up with you when the weather gets warmer. That would stop us from squawking and give your mom a break!

"That Boy" was accepted to several colleges, and has chosen a small private college here in WV. He has even received several scholarships from them, so we are all happy about that! Mama will be pretty sad when he leaves, but he will only be two hours south of us, so it won't be too bad.

I am wishing you and the entire an early Happy Easter today, as the family is going away for the weekend, leaving tomorrow. I hope the Easter Bunny brings you lots of treats. I have my Easter sleep tent now, so I am really ready for his visit this weekend!

Love always ~ Martini (:>

  Hi Riza!
How have you been? I have been a very good boy lately, not too much squawking coming from me. Of course, I still lunge at "That Boy" when he comes to close, but otherwise I have been very good.

Next week, "He" will hear back from all the colleges he has applied to, so that will be exciting for him. When he goes to college, the house might seem a bit strange, but of course I won't mind that, I'll have to share Mama only with Dad!

I am sure you are anxious to get into the big bird room to have more area to roam. But you get to go outside also, don't you? I don't know if I would like to be outside or not. As an only bird, I am very attached to Mama, and I would probably squawk all day long if I were left alone for too long. I guess I am a bit spoiled, but who cares! As long as I can sit on Mama's shoulder and put my beak in her ear, I am one happy guy!

Not much more to tell. The family will be going away for the Easter Holiday and Aunt Lisa will be my caregiver while they are away. I'll be sure to visit you before they leave to wish you a happy Easter.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Love always,

Martini (:>

  Hi Riza,
Just wanted to wish you a very Happy St. Patrick's Day!

On Saturday, Mama put my shamrock sleep tent in my cage, so I am ready to celebrate today! Last year, she made Irish Soda bread, and I really liked it, but she didn't have time this year. Oh well, I guess I'll have to wait until next year.

Hope you are having a wonderful day!

Love you,

  Hello, Riza!
How beautiful you are! I can see the yellow so nicely in the picture. I think being in the sunlight makes the color even more bright.

What a bad snow storm we had last Thursday! "That Boy" was going on his band trip so Mama and Dad thought they would go to DE while he was away. The band was going by bus to Florida then on a three day cruise, then to Universal Studios.

There was about five inches of snow on Thursday morning, so Dad had to go outside to shovel the driveway so they could get "him" to the bus. Well, of course the busses were late arriving due to the weather. So after they made sure "he" was safe on the bus, Mama and Dad drove to De. Well, that was one big mistake! Mama said the drive was very bad, the plows were out on the interstate roads, but as soon as they plowed, the snow covered it up again. What is normally a five hour ride took eight hours! When they finally got to DE, there was quite a lot of snow on the ground, and that usually doesn't happen near the beach areas. Needless to say, Mama was happy to get there and also happy to find out that the six busses taking the band, their equipment and chaperones all made it safely.

The snow continued until Friday, and luckily Aunt Lisa didn't have trouble getting across the street to come and take care of me. What a mess it was here!

Well, now that I've told you all about our snowstorm I hope your weather is better in IL. We are due some nice weather, don't you think?

I'm glad you get the kisses when I send them each night. Sometimes I give three kisses as I'm being tucked into bed, but that last one is for Mama. I hope you don't mind that I sneak one in for her once and a while!

Have a happy Tuesday, Riza.

I love you!

  Hello, Riza!
I am so happy you liked the flowers I sent. The Pretty Rose Flower Shop always does a beautiful job.

I did attempt to sign on to BC to send you a quick note on Valentine's Day, but I could not get signed on. I also tried again on Sunday, but the same happened. But I wanted you to know that I was snuggled in my heart tent dreaming of strolling along with you. I even sent you two kisses on Saturday night, I hope you received them.

More cold weather here. Saturday it was in the minus degrees and we had terrible winds, which made it even colder. It was a little warmer on Sunday, but yesterday and today, back to cold temperatures and school was closed both days. Mama was off from work yesterday for President's Day, so we all stayed home and stayed warm. Today she drove in with Dad, and I am home with "You Know Who".

Well, that's all for now. I am going to drop the Flower Shop a note to thank them for getting the flowers to you on time.

Keep warm!

You are such a funny girl, attacking that stick! But I think I would have done the same thing!

I am over the moon that you will be my valentine again this year. Tomorrow Mama will change my sleep tent to my Valentine one. It has bunches of red hearts on it, so I will count them all and send them to you, my heart to you!

It is freezing here! The temp is 4 degrees and it is windy. Schools were on a two hour delay because of the cold. Will spring ever get here?

I will not be on BC tomorrow, so I want to wish you the happiest of Valentine's Days.

Sending you a big KISS and HUG!

Yours forever,

  Hello, Riza!
I just love to receive those hugs and kisses from you, and they do keep me warm at night! I do hope you received the two kisses that I sent you the other evening. Mama reminded me to send them when she tucked me in, and I did just that.

I have a good amount of yellow in my wings also, so maybe we ARE a perfectly matched pair of Sunnies! I like that idea a lot.

And lastly, Miss Riza, I was wondering if you would do me the honor of being my Valentine once again this year? I hope you say yes..........

Love you always,

  Hello, Riza!
Thank you for your note and those wonderful kisses. They sure keep me warm on these cold nights!

The family went to Delaware last weekend and Aunt Lisa came by to take care of me as she always does. Well this time I flew off my door and got on to the floor where the kitchen table is and ran under the table. Poor Aunt Lisa couldn't reach me and I wouldn't come out for her. Finally I did, and was placed on the door again. Mama bought her a treat of fudge from the candy store at the beach, and when Dad walked over to bring it to her, Aunt Lisa told him all about my being a bad bird. She was laughing about it and said I run like a little chicken! Mama told me I had better behave a little better when Aunt Lisa comes by. I thought I was being very funny and clever, trying to out-run Aunt Lisa, but Mama didn't think so!!

We are expecting a big snow storm here this weekend, so my plans are to sit with Mama in the sun room and watch the snow fall. I think I'll take a little nap too!

Have a wonderful weekend, and here some hugs and kisses back to you to keep YOU warm this weekend!

Love you Riza!

Here I am back again from another long absence. Now that all the colleges have been applied to, Mama and Dad are working on the financial applications. I sat with them yesterday for a long time at the computer while they worked on them. I would really rather would have been sitting on Mama's knee in the sunroom taking a nap, but no such luck! I think they are all finished now, so things can get back to normal.

Did you have a nice Christmas! Mine was quiet without the family here, so I caught up on my rest, dreamt of you, and waited for Mama to walk through the door so that I could squawk my happy squawks at her. She gave me a big kiss on the beak when she came in. I was one happy guy!

Hope the weather is better in IL than it is here in WV. We had snow, rain and ice here this morning. Mama hopes spring is coming soon, she is already tired of the winter weather.

Well, gotta fly now. I'll be back soon for another visit!

Love you, my beautiful Riza!

I have been so delayed in writing on BC! Hopefully after the first of the year, when college applications are due, I will have Mama more to myself. I wanted to make sure that I flew by to wish you and the entire McFlock, a very happy, healthy and safe Christmas.

I won't be on BC all next week, because the family is visiting relatives in NJ next week. I will visit you when my typist returns!

  Hi Riza!
Well, here I am, two weeks after your note to me! It seems that time just slips away, and there is no time for BC lately. As I think I've mentioned, Mama has been busy typing for "That Boy" for his college applications and essays during her lunch hour. That was her usual BC time to type for me. I would give her my notes in the morning before she left for work, and she would handle it all for me. I think that once January rolls around and all of the applications are in, things will be less hectic.

For Thanksgiving, the family went away and Aunt Lisa took care of me. I proceeded to tear up my Thanksgiving tent, and Mama was mad at me when she returned home. So now she will have to find new turkey material for me for next year. I'm not sure if I don't like my new cage, but this is the fourth tent I've destroyed! I had better give Mama an extra kiss or two to make up for my being bad!

Well, that's all I have for now. Have a wonderful Tuesday and be a good girl :)!

Love and kisses,

  Hello, Beautiful!
Oh Riza, thank you so much for remembering my hatch day! I just love knowing that you are thinking of me.
Mama sang "Happy Hatch Day" to me this morning, just as she does every year, and I danced and bobbed on my perch as she was singing. Dad said she probably hurt my ears with her bad voice, but I think she sounds just wonderful!

All has been quiet here, not much at all going on. Have you still be sleeping in the travel crate? Lately, I have been wanting to jump into the washing machine, when Mama puts dry dirty cloths in it to begin the wash. I don't know why, I guess the towels and things look interesting to root around under.

Well, that's about it for me. Thank you for your hugs and kisses and birthday wishes.

I love you, Riza!

  Hello, Riza!
Did you have a spooktacular Halloween? I was by the window with Mama when all those little ghosts and goblins started walking about, and I was very happy to go into my tent when the doorbell started ringing! They were sure scary!

Not a lot going on here. The weather has been bright and cold, and I too can see quite far as all of the leaves are off of the trees. I like looking outside, but without the leaves on the trees, I can see those bad crows flying around and they scare me too! I guess I'm just one scaredy-cat bird!

Hope you and your flock have been well and you have been behaving yourself in the Big Bird Room!

  Hello, Riza!
Well, you are the prettiest bad girl I know! Don't feel bad, you are not alone in being bad. I have been bad for a good while now. Mama thinks it is because of my new cage, even though she left it in my room for several days before I actually moved in. I was climbing back and forth between the two, so she thought things were okay. Then Dad planted some grass seed and covered it with hay outside my window, and I don't think that I like the hay, because I look out the window and squawk. Those two things are the only things that are different. Oh, and there is the plant stand, Mama moved that around since my new cage is smaller. I flutter my wings toward the plant until Mama brings me near it, then I hit the leaves with my beak! Who knows? I guess I'm just one crazy litte bird!

That is about it going on with me. I hope you are being good today, I'm sure you don't want a wing clip!

I'll be back for a visit soon!

  Hello, Riza!
Wow, it's been a long time since Mama has been able to type for me, sorry for not getting back to you sooner.

Mama has been busy lately, helping "Him" fill out college applications. He is in his senior year, and they are working on getting everything together to provide a good, solid application.

I have seen Jenny the dog go by my window, mostly in the evenings when I am sitting on Mama's knee. I am still being good and not sqawking when I see her go by.

And guess what? I have a new cage! Not sure if I like it just yet, as it is a bit smaller than the one I had for the last ten years. Dad put it together last Monday, and it was left in my room so I could look at it for a while. Last night was my move-in, and I think I sort of like it (I think). Mama had a new tent made for the occasion, it is blue and has birdhouses and little birds on, but she hung it a little differently than the other one, so I was confused a bit last night. She fixed it for me (good Mama!), and I went right in to go to sleep. I think I will feel better about it in a few days. We'll just have to see....

Tonight is the high schools first football game, and as "He" plays in the band, Mama and Dad will be going to watch. He is front row center on the 50 yard line this year, as a senior memeber of the band. I'm sure Mama will cry, she crys for everything! I love hearing band music and when I do, I always dance up a storm. If you ever want to dance also, go to and watch the video of their field show, it's pretty neat.

Well, that's all my news. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Labor Day weekend.

All my love,

  Hello, my beautiful Riza!
Well, I'm glad to hear that you have been able to get outside some in the nice weather. I've been outside a few times, but holding on tightly to Mama's finger. I even met a new friend, one of the neigbors dogs named Jenny. She is a poodle mix and very nice an quiet. I don't think she knew what I was, she was just tilting her head from side to side when we were introduced. Now, when she and her Mom go for their walk in the evening and pass my window, I don't even scream. Mama tells me that it's Jenny who is passing and I just press myself close to the glass so that I can see better. When other doggies and their owners pass, I let out some big screams, so I guess I like Jenny!

Not too much going on here. The family is going away for vacation next week again, and Aunt Lisa will be coming by to take care of me. She told Mama that I was dancing for her last week. I have been doing that quite a bit lately, and Aunt Lisa thought I was very cute. I must admit, I am a good dancer! Well, at least I think so! :).

Has your mom been seeing the emails going around for the new bird web-site? We haven't tried to get on it yet, and I think Mama will look into it when she returns from vacation. I am sad that BC is going away, and will especially miss our baseball games.

Well, that's it for now. Thank you for the kisses, I love them so much!

  Hi Riza,
I am glad to hear that you have been enjoying your room, with the nice weather finally here! I guess you will get to spend some time in the bird barn also.

Yes, I do chew my tents. Then Mama has to send them out for repairs! Her friend has a new way of sewing them now. She makes a pocket on what would be the floor of the tent, where I would stand, so that Mama can take out the plexi-glass "floor" of the tent, and wash the tent without the hard part in it. The plexi-glass "floors" are wrapping in batting and flannel, and then inserted into the pocket when the tents come out of the wash. This seems to keep the tents nicer longer, as when we couldn't take the plexi-glass out, they would bang around in the washing machine and get torn up. It keeps them nicer a little longer.

Well, I'm not sure what I did to make Jenny Lynn mad! I know I haven't been on BC as much as I would like, do you think that she thinks I'm not paying attention to you? I sure hope not. I did answer her not to try and ease her concerns. I hope that helps!

Not very much going on here. "That Boy" has finished school, and will be a senior next year. Then Mama will be busy helping to fill out college applications and doing all sorts of senior year things. The week after next, Aunt Lisa will be coming to take care of me as the family is going away for a few days. Mama has been trying to find some beach looking material for a new summer tent for me, but hasn't found anything yet.

Well, that's all I have for now. I hope you have a wonderful weekend, and know that YOU are always in my heart.

I love you, Riza!

  Hi Riza!
Boy, your Dad certainly has more patience than my Dad. He would have never waited around for me to settle down to take a picture with flowers! I don't like that camera thing, so I would have been trying to attack it while the picture was being taken! What a bad boy I am!

Not alot going on at my house, except "That Boy" went to the Prom and Mama was paying a lot of attention to him. He did look nice with his tux on, and Mom and Dad were taking a bunch of pictures, but it did not make me happy that I was not included. I was stuck in my cage, hanging on the door, flapping and fluttering my wings at all the excitement.

I'm glad you were able to spend some time outside with your Mom, I bet you liked that a lot.

Well, that's about all for now. Take care and have a wonderful Monday!

Love always,

Martini (:>

  Hi Pretty Lady
Glad you got some mom time despite Lord RaneBeau.
We are trying for attention here, the skins keep leaving or being busy. Once in a while one or another let us out, then ZIPPY gets jailed again due to trying to steal MY pellets--I really do not like that. She can have what I dump on the floor.

  Hi Riza
It's always fun to have a 2 day party!
Happy Earth Day! It's raining here, so the earth will be shooting up more flowers and green grass soon in celebration of her special day. Mom spotted some buds on the lilac this morning when she walked the dogs. Spring is here!
Today is a relaxing day for mom. She is will meet Lena and see her new apartment, then go to lunch with her. It's always fun to spend time with her grands. She will then do some shopping for us, fruits and stuff. Later she is meeting her sister to plan strategies for Thursday, the date for mom's surgery. They have to figure what time they're leaving and see exactly where the place is. It's an outpatient surgery center, not the hospital where mom thought it was. Most of the day is ours, though.
I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of love and scritchies. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo and Divo, mom loves you both, Willie, Stormy for BOTM, Peppino, vote forStormy & Falco, vote Stormy for BOTM.

  Hi Riza
It is greyt to be the only one and have mom's attention all the time. But, sometimes it can be lonely when the parronts are gone for a few hours. No one here speaks parrot!
It was just another dreary day today. Little darling, it’s been a long cold lonely winter … here comes the sun … lalalalala. I hope so!
The vet says that Blue (54066) is doing greyt but, has to wait 2 more weeks before the stitches come out. She still needs prayers.

A belated Happy Hatchday and Congrats on BOTD... There should be no excuse but Mom was at a Cancer fundraiser Saturday and yesterday, being Easter, her volunteers came really early to help clean our cages, and then the rest of the day flew by. We spent a lot of time with Mom but nowhere near the computer. Shhh... here is a pink jellybean I snuck over for you. We each got one yesterday. They are JellyBelly jellybeans and they have soooo many flavors, it was fun to hunt for them. See you soon.

Come visit me, Leroy, Little Bit & Chloe - Thank you for BOTD!, Gizmo - Thanks everybirdy for BOTD!, Max, Jasper - Thanks everybirdy for BOTD!, Micky - Thanks everybirdy for BOTD!, PEPPER - WOW! Thanks everybirdy for BOTD!, TiPaul and Cubird at the Derby Milonga, Floop & Porky - ready to win the race!, Jockey Marley & Exchange Rate, Zak - Off to the milonga tomorrow... & Lee-Roial RIP - Thanks for remembering me..
