Hi! My name is Pookie says Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pie !! Yay

I am a Green-Cheeked Conure from Pearl City, HI.

Pookie Pot Pie, Pookums, Pook, Pooooooooookie, Hey You! Rice bird !

5 years old   M

Green-Cheeked Conure

Fresh Papaya, Mango, grapes, Raw Peanuts, pumpkin and papaya chews, and all SUNFLOWER SEEDS!!!! Or sticky rice and whatever mom is eating I want to try too. :)

Nowadays since its cold, i've been hanging out in mom's shirt cause its nice and warm and cozy in there. :) or on top of my tree screeching when I see an intruder like a cat or dog that goes by.

I think i'm a teenager now. I don't like loud noises or stink and strange people and my vet said that I can't have seeds everyday cause its not good for me. :( And when i'm on mom and don't want to come down till i'm ready to go down! :( Cause i'm a spoiled birdy!

she gives me love and lots of fruits and treats and stuff to play with and spoils me rotten :)

I also took a DNA test on Friday to see if i'm a boy birdy or a girl birdy. We'll know in 10 days. :) I think we'll get the results by February 14th, 2010 Valentine's Day.
GUESS WHAT EVERYONE, I'M A BOYEEEE!!!!! MY DNA TEST CAME BACK TODAY FEBRUARY 17, 2010!!! HEHEHEHHEHE :) HAPPY HAPPY, JOY JOY!!!!

Also, my mom reminds me to say my birdy prayers every night before I go to sleep. And it goes something like this: Dear God, I thank you for my mommy and daddy and all of my birdy friends here on the BCC and every where else. Please bless all my birdy friends and especially to those who just came out of surgery and are recooperating. Please bless those young and old birdies who are ill or are not feeling well, as you are the great physician in the sky and can heal all. I pray that you cover all us birdies with your shield of armor to protect us from any disease or illness or harm that may come our way. I thank you from the bottom of my little birdy heart, Amen. :)


I think i'm in puberty my hormonies are running a muck! I don't like daddy when i'm on mommy and I try to bite him and I lunge!! I dunno why? PUBERTY !!!!.

Pook Pook Pookie! Ma! Ma! Ma! What U doing??? Pookie go botcha! What U doing?? Pookpook Pookie Pookie Pookie, where's Daddy? Where did you go?.

  Hi Pookie
Oh boy I love to surf on my boogie board so am all ready here.
I hope you had a really nice Thanksgiving yesterday. Mom says she doesn’t like shopping so sure wasn’t about to go out in it today either. Mom and I did some scrap booking. Well mom did it and I watched but she was home all day so that was good. It was very cold out today and think that kept her home too but know there was lots of traffic too and mom doesn’t like to be out in that. “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole stair case.“ Dropping a vote in your basket.

is becoming more and more excited about the boogie board contest and he just can't wait for the sky to darken up and the sun go in and the moon come right out high in the sky for it to splay out its luminescent light across the very blue Hawaiian waters!He watches as the waves hit the shores on the beach and as he sits finishing up his lunch and snacks with Pookie a wide smile spreads across his beak just thinking of all the excitement coming up in the next few hours on the beach,the bonfire,the boogie board contest in the dark moonlit night and just being with every birdie right down to the very last minute!

  `Ü´ Greetings & A Happy Day After
Thanksgiving to you Mr Pookie and Miss Laka! I do hope your Thanksgiving was one of contemplation and appreciation for all the blessings you share with your flockily, as well as loving time together to celebrate all of those blessings.

As I mentioned several days ago, my momma and daddy were blessed with not only the very first Holiday Celebration (or celebration of any event or holiday) with EVERYone in daddy’s family being present, but also a several day long visit with my Grandma beforehand, and a couple of days to come still with my Uncle.

As a result, I have not been able to visit as regularly as I otherwise would have. But parrotsonally, I did use the contemplations of the Holiday to count the many featheriendship blessings that I’ve had in the process of this Quest for the Bird of the Month Crown that I’ve been on this month, AND the love and support you’ve all shown me in that effort. And I eggstend my most heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you.

For today I thought I would lighten the spirit of the Campaign and share a funny story. We will, however, finish up with our FootBall information before the month is out.

This is a story that I “made up” about my frother Jake. The originally disguised parrot’s identity was changed to reveal Jake’s NON-innocence. **GiGGle**


BAD Jake <Ö)

Jake joined The K Kritter Korral as the first Blue-and-Gold Macaw after fister Rosalie made her Journey to The Rainbow Bridge. He had a bad attitude and an even worse vocabulary.

Every word out of his beak was rude, obnoxious and laced with profanity. Momma tried and tried to change his attitude by consistently saying only polite words, playing soft music and anything else she could think of to clean up his vocabulary.

Finally, Momma was fed up and she yelled at Jake <Ö). Jake <Ö), of course, yelled back. Momma shook him and he got angrier and even more rude. In desperation, Momma threw up her hands, grabbed Jake <Ö) and put him in the freezer.

For a few minutes Jake <Ö) squawked and kicked and screamed. (And Jake <Ö) screams LIKE A GIRL! **TeeHee**.) Then suddenly there was total quiet. Not a sound was heard for over a minute.

Fearing that she had hurt him, Momma quickly opened the door to the freezer. Jake <Ö) calmly stepped out onto Momma’s outstretched hand and said "I believe I may have offended you with my rude language and actions. I am sincerely remorseful for my inappropriate transgressions and I fully intend to do everything I can to correct my rude and unforgivable behavior."

Momma was absolutely stunned at the change in Jake’s <Ö) attitude.

As she was about to ask Jake <Ö) what had made such a dramatic change in his behavior, he spoke up, very softly, and asked … "May I ask what the turkey did?"

  Hi Pookie
Greyt game today, but the boogie board race was the best! I never knew those things were so much fun!

We had a very nice Thanksgiving Dinner with our duck and my favorite, the wild rice and water chestnut stuffing. It was so very tasty, and today Dad gave me a thigh bone to chew on. This was after Mom and I shared her birdy bag from her Birthday lunch on Wednesday; it was Vietnamese food and I just loved those rice noodles.

And our warm spell continues, so as soon as Mom got home from zumba at the gym we went outside for a spell. I got two nutriberries since we were out for a while, and I enjoyed the whole thing a lot.

Be sure and stop by the Calendar Page and read up on the doings tomorrow night at the Feetball Milonga. It is going to sooooo greyt!

  Hi Pookie
HAPPY THANKSGIVING!! I hope you had a good one with lots of food and family around. Mom was making some things here this morning and washing clothes. This afternoon mom and dad went to visit the one skin sis since they were invited there for dinner. It was my nap time while they were gone and nice and quiet so I had a good one too. This evening dad was getting left overs in the kitchen and I yelled and then flew over to see what he had. He gave me some turkey so I guess he is a good dad too. “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole stair case.“ Dropping a vote in your basket. Hugs~~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

plops himself down right beside Pookie all hot and tired from such an eggciting game with that ball just flying here there and everywhere!Dixie guzzles down some ice cold juice that Mama Ruthie has set out for them and then takes a bite from his sandwich and he watches Pookie just chowing down his sandwich so quickly like as fast as lightening!A smile forms on Dixie's face,he just can't get over at just how hungry Pookie really is!Pookie tells Dixie that he is so hungry he thinks the whole world could here his tummy grumbling!Dixie cocks his head to the side just trying hard to listen to Pookie's tummy crying out for more food and just at that moment a funny high pitched sound emanates from Pookie,both boys look at each other directly in each others eyes and before you know it you can hear laughter echoing from the spot where they both are sitting perched in a shady area!Pookie's tummy makes another high pitched almost whiny sound and that sets the two boys off again in unstoppable giggles.....

Thank you for congratulating me on BOTD! It sure was a surprise this morning to see that I had won:) Mom is going to give us all some millet to celebrate! It doesn't get much better than that as I love millet. Don't worry, I will monopolize the head scritches when we get out too. That crown makes my head a bit itchy....LOL!

Kiddo takes a quick break from the game to say:

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!

Just a quick blog to wish you and yours a very happy holiday. Whether your table is loaded down with a turkey, or you are having a duck like we are at my house, may your meal be filled with thanks and happiness.

I am thankful for the wonderful sunbath I had this morning. It is 88 degrees here now, and was a lovely low 80s when we went outside at 10:30. I wish I could send some of our sunshine to those of you who are shivering under winter weather. At least let your hearts be warm with love and laughter today and it will feel like Spring!

LOL :) Everyone will be coming to our house for Thanksgiving lunch today. Our flock has been told that we will get some of the food, too. :) Mom is sorry that she has not been blogging lately. Along with being busy, our oldest dog just had a cancerous tumor removed. So mom has been preoccupied with that. Thank you for your friendship, and have a wonderful and Happy Thanksgiving. :) From, Mayo

  Oh boy Pookie
All those wonderful juices your mom has set out for us sure hits the spot and after that volley ball game I sure was thirsty too. Ummm this pineapple cake is the best I have ever tasted and your mom sure knows how to make a birdy happy LOL.
Skin sis and family were going down their road and all of a sudden a deer ran across in front of their car and SIL slammed on the brakes but the deer hit the car. The one headlight is broken and the deer landed on the hood and then ran up into the woods. Son in law feeds the deer all winter so he really felt bad and the grand didn’t say anything for a long time and then just hoped he was ok and didn’t die. Good they all had seat belts on and nobody got hurt. Now starts the process of getting the car repaired and all that hassle. “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole stair case.“ Dropping a vote in your basket.

  Hi Pookie
Oh yea my mom loses her bearings too LOL.
Today mom was home all day with me since the parronts went to the grocery store last night. Mom bought all she needed (and more) for Thanksgiving. Today she was chopping and dicing and every once in a while I would fly over to watch. Just when she would be really busy I would leave and throw the nuts out of the bowl on the coffee table though. That kept her busy too and after awhile she quit picking them up. She said she was glad there wasn’t many in the bowl and the bowl was small. Doesn’t matter cause I sure cant get those walnuts open no matter how hard I try! “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole stair case.“ Dropping a vote in your basket.

  Hi Pookie
I am not sure what bearings are, but maybe they are baby bears. I didn't know you had bears in HI.

Well, happy to report that Mom got back from driving her friend down to her disability hearing in time to blog, although it didn't go well. That darned judge sent her back for another doctor's visit after telling her she should try telemarketing! How rude! And he was late too. She and Mom had to wait an hour for him, then they got stuck in construction traffic on the way home. Mom's friend was not very happy.

At least it was still warm enough when Mom got home at 1 for us to share lunch and then go out for a sunbath at 1:30. I only got 30 minutes outside, but the vet said that is good for keeping my feathers healthy...and I do look amazing!

No biting today, and so far no cranky behavior at all. Mom's now got a pretty nasty bite from me on the back of each hand, so I had better cool it for a while. That first one is a week old and still looks awful. Who knew my beak was so sharp?

Susan and Riley Ann have joined the cheerleaders for the Milonga Bowl, and I forgot to announce our referees! They are C R Jake and RaneBeau; both are big boys who can stand up to anybirdy, even Jenny Lynn!

for the juice break!
We couldn’t get on BC last night either. Hoping it stays on so we can get our blogs done now tonight. Sometimes at night after I am in bed and covered for the night I hear dad cracking nuts that sit on the coffee table. Sometimes in the day dad will crack one and give me some of it so he does share. I get on the coffee table and knock the bowl off the table and then check all the nuts out to see if I can get them open but never can do that with the walnuts. They are tough nuts! Mom buys almonds in the shell and some of them I can get open though but takes me a long time. “Sometimes I think “what is a friend?” and then I say a friend is some birdy to share the last treat with as I would share with you ” Leaving a vote for you.

  Hi Pookie
Greyt game today, but the best part was your mom's yummy breakfast and all that wonderful fresh juice!

I am not getting outside for a sunbath today, even though it is just about warm enough. The problem is me! My mom was in my room drinking hot tea from her travel mug for a headache, and I decided I didn't like the mug....and I attacked her hand that was holding it. Yep, another nasty bite, and I am now in my room in time out. I know I have been bad, because I am being very quiet. Mom didn't really yell at me, but she did say Good-bye pretty loud and three times! Haven't seen her since except for lunch. I behaved then, so why am I still a bad boy?

I did get a sunbath yesterday, although since I couldn't blog (thanks a lot, BC) I couldn't tell anybirdy about it. Today is trash day with the big trucks coming around, so I might not have gone outside anyway. Those trucks really scare me. And it is pretty windy here even if it is 75 degrees out.

I may not be blogging tomorrow, because my mom has to drive her friend down to court for an appeal on a disability hearing. If she gets home in time though, I will still be able to blog. We shall see.

Don't forget to vote for Miss Ruby #35469, there are only a few more days to vote!

  `Ü´ Greetings & A Lovely Monday to You
Mr Pookie and Miss Laka!

I do hope that your Saturday and Sunday were full of fun and productivity. I know in my case I had to relinquish Momma’s eggsclusive attention and assistance on my Campaign to be your December Bird of the Month to more pressing parrontal matters around our K Kritter Korral. (The portion of Sunday during which Momma was available to bring me to your page for a visit, the BirdChannel was not cooperating. You might say that their GPS was out of order! **TeeHee**)

You see, Momma and Daddy were informed that they could eggspect a visit from my Grandma from Idaho from later today, to last thru Thursday morning when they all gather at Daddy’s youngest brother’s home about an hour away from us for the first Family Celebration with everyone present since Momma and Daddy have known each other. Grandma was eager to be able to spend time here with Momma and Daddy, and all of us fids of course, before joining the rest of the family for a concurrent Celebration of Thanksgiving and her BirthDay on Thursday! Then she will remain with my Uncle and his family until she returns to her home in Idaho later in the week, while my other Uncle comes to pay us a visit over the long weekend.

So, all of this is to say that my visits may be a bit sporadic from now thru the end of the month, due to Grandma’s visit, the Holiday weekend with my Uncle visiting, and the upcoming Milonga Thanksgiving Bowl Game. I do apologize in advance for any visits I shall have to forego. But rest assured that I shall continue to do my utmost to bring you the maximum amount of FootBall information in the time we have left together.

And on that note, let us get straight to the information I’ve promised you next about the Offensive Squad on a FootBall team …


Let’s begin our eggsamination of the individual Positions on the Offensive Squad.

QuarterBack – The Player who usually receives the ball from the Center at the start of each play. He informs his TeamMates in the huddle of the play that will be run and then, after the Center snaps* the ball to him, either hands the ball to a Running Back or throws to a Receiver.

Center – The Player who hikes (or snaps) the ball to the QuarterBack at the start of each play. The term comes from the fact that this Player is flanked on either side by a Guard and a Tackle; he’s the “MiddleMan” (or Center) in a contingent of five Offensive LineMen or Blockers. He handles the ball on every play and also snaps the ball to the Punter and Holder.

Guard – There are two Guards on every play, and they line up on either side of the Offensive Center. The Guards protect the QuarterBack from an Inside Rusher; they block Defenders immediately across from them and also swing out, or pull**, and run toward either end [of the line] to block any Defender when the ball carrier runs wide°.

Come visit me, `Ü´ Ruby Tells the Tale of 'BAD Parrot Jake <Ö)!'.

11/24/2014 09:04.47 AM Report This Comment  
  Tackle – Both Offensive and Defensive, on Offense they are Outside Blockers on the line of scrimmage°°.

Tight End – Serves as a BIG Receiver [Oh MY!] and also a Blocker. Unlike a Wide Receiver, this Player generally lines up beside the Offensive Tackle either to the right or to the left of the QuarterBack. (Also “Strong Side+”)

Wide Receiver – The Player who uses his speed and quickness to elude Defenders and catch the FootBall, but who isn’t primarily a Blocker. Wide Receivers are also known as “pass catchers” [but I-I-I would parrotsonally NOT disparage one so!]. Also called a WideOut.

Running Back – A Player who runs with the FootBall. Running Backs are also referred to as TailBacks and HalfBacks, depending on their exact responsibilities and alignment.

FullBack – A Player who lines up in the Offensive backfield++ and generally is responsible for blocking for the Running Back and pass-blocking to protect the QuarterBack. FullBacks also serve as short-yardage runners.


I would also like to call your attention to a display of several of the basic Offensive Formations which appear in the Gallery at the bottom of my page. (They also appear in my Profile Picture at the top of my page; but they are much clearer and contain eggsplanatory text in the photos in the Gallery.) I hope these are of use to you in recognizing some of what happens on the actual field of play the next time you watch a FootBall Game.

I am also including several definitions of terms used in the above Position Descriptions at the end of this note.

Have a Greyt Day! Perhaps enjoy watching The Jets play The Bills at 7:00 pm on CBS, or The Ravens play at The Saints at 8:30 pm on ESPN. Both times are EST. Remember, it is virtually illegal to watch a FootBall Game quietly. So do what we Avians are most well-known for doing … **S*Q*U*A*W*K** . **I*T** . **U*P** ! ! !

*snap—the action in which the ball in handed or hiked by the Center to the QuarterBack, to the Holder on a kick attempt, or to the Punter.
**pull—when a player leaves one area of the field, generally moving back and then over, to block in an area other than his normal position.
°run wide
°°line of scrimmage—the imaginary boundary between the two teams prior to the snap of the ball. The Offense’s and Defense’s scrimmage lines are defined by the tip of the ball closest to them and stretch from sideline to sideline. The Defensive Team usually lines up less than a yard away from where the ball is placed.
+strong side—the side of the Offensive formation where the Tight End aligns. With a right-handed QuarterBack, the strong side is usually to his right side.
++backfield—the group of Offensive Players (the Running Backs and QuarterBack) who line up behind the line of scrimmage (vs the Offensive LineMen and/or Receivers who line up at the line of scrimmage).

and all the other birdies all hear the whistle as Momma Ruthie sounds it and they all are so thirsty from such a long and fun game of volley ball and run up to the tent to get some ice cold juice!Dixie's beak is watering for some ice cold pineapple juice as he and the others run as fast as their little legs can carry them off the warm sands of the beach and up into the tent where Mama Ruthie has all those cool drinks ready for them! They all grab a glass of juice and hang loose in the shade from the hot 86 degree weather and Dixie closes his eyes savoring every drop of the refreshing cold juice!Ahhhhhh!This is soooo good! a wide smile spreads across his beak as he heads off to pour himself another glass of the ice cold juice!

Come visit me, Gabbie, Kallie, Peepers & Dixie.

  Hi Pookie
Sorry we weren't able to blog yesterday. Mom was at the Galleria, a shopping area about 20 miles (through city traffic) away. The event started at 12 and ran to 4, but the folks from the wildlife center wanted all the volunteers there at 11 to help set things up, and of course, they stayed at the end to put it all back in the vans. Mom and her partner had Quincy and Dan Quail; Jake the snake was at another table, and Ray the crow was in still another location on the second level. On the third level there were programs every hour featuring Murphy the skunk and Martha the Great Horned Owl. There were also refreshments and kid crafts, as well as face painting on that level. It was a fairly large event to organize and pull off so far from the center, but a local auto company outfitted a van and donated it for a year. It has cages in it, and is comfortable for a lot of animals, and has cats, dogs, and wild animals painted on the sides so we can now transport critters to events and hopefully make more cash.
Anyway, mom was pretty tired when she got home so she spent the evening cuddling with us and crocheting things for Christmas.
Today mom has 2 public tours in Dinosaur hall, but she'll be home making out the shopping list for Thanksgiving and being with us afterwards. We were going to try a Hubbard squash pie this year, but mom left the squash on the back deck, and it froze, so it's not good for anything except squirrels and deer now. Mom tossed it and the pumpkins over the hill for the animals this morning.
Our weather, after freezing rain yesterday morning (during the drive, of course), has turned warmer. It was in the high 40s when we got up today, and it's supposed to carry through until tomorrow, and be nice once again. It's probably our last hurrah, though. We can expect wintery conditions to get here again on Wednesday. Oh, and the furnace is finally up and running reliably after the guy replaced some pressure switches on Friday. I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of attention and love. Hugs, Peppy

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Go Pilgrims!, Peppino, Go Pilgrims!, Divo & Falco, Rah rah for the Pilgrims!.

  Gus falls asleep
dreaming of all the good food he has eaten that Pookie mom has made for them.
Today mom went to a craft show for a little bit. It was freezing rain when mom crept out of the there and was happy to get home again. She said she should of just stayed home and finish her projects here since she has this one card about done she was working on and a book almost finished and some crocheting project about finished so should just finish them up. This week will be busy coming up so if by chance we arent on some evening next week we are just busy and will return soon. Thinking its like that for everyone but then it slows down again too which is good. “Sometimes I think “what is a friend?” and then I say a friend is some birdy to share the last treat with as I would share with you ” Leaving a vote for you. Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Come visit me, Gus --Chi chi ♥ RIP & Chi chi RIP my sweet girl..
