We are so done with winter! It's now just another ugly season that we can't wait to boot out of here. Mom is longing for spring, and so are we. 21 more days??? I sure hope so! Hope also that you are having a great day. Hugs, Willie

i think doggie is more accepting of what she is going through than dad is. she still won't use her healed leg and dad took her cone off of her head so ll she wants to do is lick and so dad keeps yelling at her to not lick and mom said just put the cone on her. she doesn't mind it. true the doggie doesn't mind the cone but dad sure does.

it warmed up today to 22 and actually felt comfortable compared to the - temps we have been getting. mom heard this strange miml cry late last night and was trudging around on the icy roads trying to find it. she never did and it quit crying. haven't heard the animal crying today but saw a big fluffy brown bird flying around and think it might have been an owl baby crying. they make the strangest sounds.

  Hi Dandy
temperatures were 43 degrees today and it sure felt wonderful. the driveway is still very icy but slowly melting. i think tomorrow it might rain and help melt it faster

so far everything has been calm and uneventful around here which is just dandy with all of us. doggie hasn't lost her splint for 3 days. Cori got a bath tonight and then blow-dried.she pouted over this until just before bedtime when she then decided she wanted to play. tomorrow is nail trimming day so none of us re looking forward to that but it is an evil necessity. our one cat ate about 1 cup of her hard kibble and then brought the whole thing up undigested but she isn't sick. she just the like a pig so mom took away her food for now til her tummy calms down. the bad budgies we finally allowed to fly free in the bedroom for a few hours and man were they loud. they were so excited after being cooped up for almost a month.

mom was happy today when she noticed i was actually gripping my perch with my bad foot. usually i keep my foot all balled up

My pine cone is toast! I finished it off yesterday, but mom expected that to happen. My parrot pinata is good for a few more days though. I love the blue elephant, the pink pig, the green frog prince, and that pirate parrot. I was happy to get the parrot one for my hatchday.
Thanks to Aunt Rose for our Valentine pics. She always comes through for us! We love her work, too.

Thanks for coming by to help me celebrate my fifth hatchday. It was a great day. I got lots of attention, a new coconut coated pine cone treat, a new pinata, and mom baked my favorite kind of birdie bread. The cake that Lizzie baked was delicious, too. I'm so glad you could have a piece with me.

  Hi Dandy
The handlers of Pennsylvania's most famous groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, said Monday the furry rodent has forecast six more weeks of winter.
Members of the top hat-wearing Inner Circle announced the "prediction" Monday morning.

A German legend has it that if a furry rodent sees his shadow on Feb. 2, winter will last another six weeks. If not, spring comes early.

The forecast was delivered after a steady pre-dawn rain turned to snow as temperatures dropped from the high 30s to around freezing. They were forecast to keep dropping over much of the state, prompting the state Department of Transportation to lower the speed limit to 45 mph for many interstate highways which were already wet and expected to freeze or be covered with snow as the day wore on.
The rain kept some revelers away, with state police estimating the crowd at around 11,000, slightly smaller than in recent years when upward of 15,000 attended.

Despite the German legend, Phil's handlers don't wait to see if he sees his shadow — as he likely would not have on such an overcast day. Instead, the Inner Circle decide on the forecast ahead of time and announce it on Gobbler's Knob, a tiny hill in the town for which the groundhog is named, about 65 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.Records going back to 1887 show Phil has now predicted more winter 102 times while forecasting an early spring just 17 times. There are no records for the remaining years.

Phil's counterpart in New York City, Staten Island Chuck, delivered a conflicting message in calling for an early spring after not seeing his shadow.

Punxsutawney Phil, the weather prognosticating groundhog, during the 129th celebration of Groundhog Day on Gobbler's Knob in Punxsutawney, Pa., Monday, Feb. 2, 2015. Phil saw his shadow, predicting six more weeks of winter weather.

Chuck emerged from his home at the Staten Island Zoo early Monday and took part in a new ceremony that didn't include being held by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.Last year, in de Blasio's first time at the annual ceremony, the rodent slipped from his grasp and fell to the ground. It died weeks later.A medical exam revealed it died of internal injuries, but zoo officials said it was unclear if they were caused by the fall from de Blasio's arms. Zoo officials didn't make the death public for months.The accident became a source of teasing for the mayor, and de Blasio himself suggested Monday that "teams of animal behavior experts and scientists have consulted from all over the country" to keep the groundhog safe.

In Wisconsin, the mayor of Sun Prairie might not be getting too close to a groundhog again.During a celebration Monday, the handler of Jimmy the groundhog held the animal next the face of Mayor Jonathan Freund, and Jimmy promptly bit down on the mayor's left ear.Freund flinched, but went on with the event

Mom is tired of winter before it even starts! She hates the cold weather. We can't go outside so we don't like it either... However a new pinata makes me stay busy, so I don't mind it so much. My cage is in a window, so I watch the wild birds at our feeders, too. Mom puts out suet, so we get to see woodpeckers among all the other birds who visit. She also spreads seed on the ground, for the cardinals, jays, and doves who do not come to the feeders.
I hope you are having a good day and getting some mom time. Hugs, Willie

mom is sorry she isn't answering blogs very well.mom hasn't been on bird channel much in the last few weeks. first her back went out and whenever she thought it was getting better and would try and do things it ended up getting worse. she was at the point where she couldn't even stand up straight and then a intestinal virus hit her and think of the word projectile a lot. mom was in such agony she prayed someone would shoot her. very slowly mom is starting to feel better but it is very hard to blog on the puter because it hurts her to sit there for too long. at least she is able to hold food down.

It's a long winter, isn't it? It isn't even a month old, and it seems like it's been cold forever. We do have some amaryllis in bloom here, though, and some narcissus as well, so it brightens up the house a bit.
Hope you are well and happy, even with the cold weather. Hugs, Willie

  Hi Dandy
mom always heats the water in the outside birdbaths so the birds have water in the freezing temps. then she would have these long extension rods stretching from the bird baths to the outside electrical outlets. this year she moved her birdbath to right beside the front porch because its closer to the house and easier to get to and no long extension cords. since she has one heated bird bath there she let the others dry up as they are concrete and can crack from the ice. anyway she didn't think the birds would be able to find it but they did. if we don't get a certain level of snow our water tables this summer will plummet. we should have had about 25 inches by now. they say we are going to have a very hot and dry summer.

Hope your New Year's day was a fun one. Ours sure was! Mom had a bunch of people over, and we all love to show off for guests. As promised, here are some pics of the flower show at Phipps.
This morning at the center mom cleaned the raccoons and ground hogs and bats again. The good news is that one of the other volunteers came in to help her feed the bats, otherwise she would probably still be there!
I hope today brings you lots of good cuddles and scritches! Hugs, Willie

I got some pinatas too!
Mom worked today on the mammal cart at the museum, where she pulled out a bunch of skulls and some small things to talk about. Later she had a tour of dinosaur hall with a few people before finishing for the day. There was a steady stream of people at the cart, not so many for the tour.
After leaving the museum, mom went to Trader Joe's to shop for her open house on New Year's day. What she didn't find there, she bought at the supermarket. When she got home, she was pretty tired, so we are late getting to our blogs. But, there's nothing much to talk about anyway, so I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles.

  HI DANDY
Parrot’s Night Before Christmas
by Cheryl Tamburri
T’was the night before Christmas, so much to do!
Not a creature was stirring not even the Too
The stockings were hung, the parrots were bathed,
To wrap the bird toys, my efforts enslaved.
The cages were covered, the birds all in bed,
While visions of almonds danced in their heads.
And mom in her bird shirt, dressed looking poor,
on hands and knees cleaning poop off the floor.
When out on the lawn there arose such a chatter!
we jumped up to see just what was the matter
we peered out the window, what now to endure!
A Macaw in a sleigh, pulled by tiny Conures!
A Scarlet, he was, in a jaunty red hat,
I thought to myself, Good Lord, look at that!
He flew off the sleigh, and into my room,
bringing foot toys and blocks and a raffia broom.
we gasped in pure wonder; and we love Santa too
‘Oh yes!’, said the Scarlet, ‘i love you!’
“They love and they play and to owners they chat,
How many folks have pets just like that?!”
The joy parrots bring you all through the year,
The ones without out homes that are equally dear,
They deserve affection and enrichment all year,
But tonight especially, in hearts hold them all near.
The wise old bird gave a nod and a wink;
After dropping off toys he was gone in a blink!
And we thought to ourselves, we are blessed, yes indeed;
and to people who take take rescue birds, and to fill all their needs
He flew to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And off they all flew like the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim as they flew out of sight
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

love Cori and Boo Boo

the budgies were very very bad today. they escaped from their cage while mom was cleaning it and feeding them this morning. mom immediately thought she locked the cats in the bedroom and the doggie in the office. somehow the cats got out of the bedroom and while mom was trying to grab the cats to get them back in the bedroom the budgies flew over and landed on Coris cage. all mom could think of was budgies with no more feet. when she got them off Coris cage their flew over and landed on mine and i was ready but not as fast as mom who was running around like a maniac trying to catch them. finally after mom and the budgies were exhausted pidddy landed on moms head and mom grabbed paddy and got them into their cage. bad bad budgies

I asked Santa for the same thing! I hope I get one, I've been a good boy!
Today mom has to make fudge for the volunteer Christmas party at the wildlife center. It starts at 4, so she figured she'd do our blogs first, then make the fudge. Hope it has enough time to cool off, hahaha. She will wrap gifts for the staff while the fudge cools. At the party the volunteers will vote on new liaison people and a treasurer to handle volunteer donations for next year. Mom doesn't even know who's running yet.
Yesterday mom got to the Waterfront and circled around a couple of times before going to the back lot and parking. It meant carrying the box with supplies, which is why she was hoping for a closer spot. It worked out though, the box was more awkward than heavy. In the building where they were wrapping gifts, there were kids' craft tables set up to make cards, snowflakes, and 3D paper trees. There was also live music (think loud), and Santa was there to greet everyone and have kids get their pictures taken. It was funny, a few of the kids saw him and started to cry!
The center will get a donation from the property for showing up, and they collected a few bucks last night, too. It was a different kind of evening, for sure!
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles. Hugs, Willie

You and your flock always have such elegant pics for Christmas. You look so nice. Aunt Rose, Dixie's mom, made them for us. She has been doing our seasonal pics for awhile now since mom is so stupid about doing them.
Yesterday mom got our oil filled radiator and got the wheels on it so it's ready to go. If it's cold next Thursday, the radiator will keep us warm and toasty. She also bought a wreath for outside while she was at Home Depot. This inspired her to put out the little sled, and make beautiful gold bows for both the wreath and the sled, to kind of tie them together. Today she is going shopping with her sister, so no decorating, but we have high hopes for the weekend, at least for the outdoors.
At the KB today, Falco will be running all the Christmas Carol movies, starting with the one from the 30s, and running through the most modern ones. We particularly love the Muppets Christmas Carol, and a movie called Scrooge! with Albert Finney. It has great music! See you at the movie marathon.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of love and attention. Hugs, Willie

Mom tried to put up our football pics, Falco's cheerleader and the our position pics, but they won't load. Maybe when we are done with blogging she can get it done. She sent a note to i5 about it.
Hope your Thanksgiving was fun, ours sure was. We had 10 for dinner, and it was a great success. Mom was happy that everyone got enough to eat, and most of them went home with care packages, too. We will have leftovers today, which are always good the day after Thanksgiving.
It snowed off and on yesterday, but didn't settle on the street. This morning when mom walked the dogs, it was slippery in spots, but by the time she got done at the center, the streets were mostly dry.
At the center mom fed the bats today, then helped them get caught up with laundry. They were only open to 12 yesterday, so the laundry just didn't get done. Mom got 3 loads washed, and it didn't make a dent! Of course, that's because the volunteers were adding today's laundry on top of what was there. Mom also got a bit of filing done, to help them in the office. I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of cuddles. Hugs, Willie

  Hi Dandy
Yesterday mom needed another shot for that wet macular degeneration condition. I guess it is chronic. She's been 4 months with no shots, so the doctor thought that was good. Anyway, now that she has the shot, she has to go back in January, which means she's clear to do all the Christmas things without worrying about losing a day. Her eye was irritated, runny and itchy all day long. Today it's better, though.
Mom did 2 tours at the museum today, the first with 7th grade kids on biomes and climate change, and the second with a group of home schooled kids. The first tour was fun, and mom is confident about doing that again. It was an experience where mom introduced the topic, handed out notebooks and pencils to the students, and let them explore the dioramas on the second floor. At the end, they all got back together and shared their notes. It was her first experience with that kind of tour, so she wasn't sure about it, but it worked out well. She got to engage with all the kids in their exploration time instead of just talking the whole hour. The second one, well the kids are home schooled, so don't have a lot of social skills, but they were engaged, except for the youngest ones.
It's been really cold here for the past couple of days, or at least it feels really cold. On Tuesday it was 70, but yesterday it barely hit 42, and today it's about 38, so it feels pretty cold. I hope you are enjoying some better weather.
Congratulations to Popeye and Jenny Lynn for hitting milestone votes!

Those roses were just too tangled, now they're down to the ground, but they should all grow back. Mom is hoping to keep up with the pruning next year. She bought new hedge clippers today, so it should be easier.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYBIRDIE!
Mom cleaned the RVS room again today, and fed that little bat. She thinks they will have another bat by Monday. Someone called from Laurel Caverns to report a bat with a broken wing, so Jill will go to meet it tomorrow and see if we can help it. They are so precious and important to our lives all over the world. Did you know there are about 8000 kinds of mammals, and bat species make up over 2000 of them? That's right, a quarter of the mammal species on earth are types of bats. They help to keep insect populations down, pollinate some foods, and spread seeds from some fruits, depending on the species.
Okay, that's enough of the teaching moment, Bats are spooky, ooky, and have a ton of old wives tales around them, too. Let's debunk a couple of them. They will never fly into your hair, unless you are harboring bugs in it. Bats use their eyes and echolocation, so they avoid things like hair and bumping into trees. They are not blind, either, most can see as well as humans can at night. One cautionary note, bats are rabies vector species, so if you come into contact with one, be careful not to touch it with bare hands.
I hope you have a day of treats with a few tricks thrown in just to keep you on your toes. Have a great day today, and don't get sick on candy! Hugs, Willie

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Peppino, Divo & Falco.

  Hi Dandy
I hope you enjoyed your day as queen of the castle!
It's gorgeous out today, and that's the reason we're late logging on to BC. Mom went grocery shopping for us this morning after she walked the dogs, then she decided to tackle that tangle of rosebushes again. There are really 3 of them which grew together and got all snarled. Today is the third day she worked on it. Her neighbor across the street saw her with the branch loppers, and he came over with his chain saw. He had that mess cut down in seconds! Mom thinks she should have bought a chain saw, except she's kind of afraid of keeping gasoline in the garage.
Anyway the bushes are gone, the debris is cleaned up, mom took a shower, and here we are at last! We want to thank Kiddo, Taz, Lizzie, Sam, Queen Angel, and anyone else who contributed to making the milonga a memorable one last night. We all had a great time, even though, as usual, we didn't get to talk to everybirdie we wanted to greet. We were sure scared on that tour!
We will be helping mom watch the Steelers later today. I hope they win, so mom will be cheering instead of screaming at the TV.
I hope You are having a good day, with lots of sun and scritches coming your way. Hugs, Willie

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Peppino, Divo & Falco.
