How my tiel and I got together was just a miracle. I had lost my first tiel in 98 and was hoping one would drop on my doorstep and in 2002 we were supposed to babysit him for his previous mommy and she passed away and her friend asked if we would keep him for our own. I was so happy! cause I needed a tiel to fill the hole my first tiel left. Of course my peach fronted conure arrived the day after he died but it was only a tiel that could fill up that hole. I love my conure because she makes me laugh and keeps me happy. I was even happier when Peepers came to fill that void, the void needed by another tiel. I became the owner when my mom asked me if I wanted to keep him and I was like heck ya, I love this tiel so much! I heard his previous mommy wanted to make sure he was in a loving home before she died and he sure is!.

Hi! My name is Peepers

I am a Cinnamon Mutation Cockatiel from Marstons Mills, MA.

Peeps,Big Boy,

22 years old   M

Cinnamon Mutation Cockatiel

nutraberries,pa- sta,animal crackers,apple peels,

i like to hang out on the playpen with my 4 conure brothers/sister- s and my pesky lutino brother and on my mommys shoulder.

I dont like showers but mommy makes me go with her but hey at least im a clean boy!, when my brother Mario steals MY perch(Lutino Cockatiel),when i gotta be stuck in the cage when mommy goes to work cuz i like to hop onto the floor because she doesnt want me getting hurt,

I love my mommy cuz she takes real good care of me and gives me lots of loves, she says im a special boy cuz i eat with my foot like a parrot she takes me on car rides, walks on my neat neon yellow harness and leash which i hate but wearing that leash means going out so i gotta be a good boy for mommy and wear it,she likes to snuggle with me and i with her. for my birthday she makes me a special birdie cake topped with seeds cuz i only get pellets for my meals cuz she thinks pellets are alot more healthier for me than seeds and they taste good too! the fruity ones are my fave! im just soo happy she adopted me cuz im happy that i found her and made her soo happy again! me being left at her house was a miracle to her and to me too cuz i have 5 brothers/sister- s for company when mommy goes to work.

i like to eat with my foot like a parrot mommy thinks its soo COOL when i do that,I like to hold my foot up when i sing and she thinks thats soo CUTE!, mommy taught me to play dead, i just lay on my back in the palm of her hand real still she thinks thats soo Cute as well and hopping on the floor and going for a run catch me if u can cuz my little pink tiel legs can move!.

"where there is floor tiel will travel, watch your step cuz im goin for a run!".

Today we are going to a beach that is on Lord Howe Island and then visiting the rest of the island. It is located between Australia and New Zealand.

The weather is so warm and the beach is relaxing. The whole island is just beautiful.

Come see the pictures in my gallery of this beautiful island.

  Hi, Peepers
Sometimes we get the odd weather too, but yours is really strange with the fog, bright sun and then hard rain. Yikes! The skylight leaked due to bird damage? What a pain in the tail feathers to have to clean up and try to keep things from getting ruined by the water. Our mom remembers having buckets catching water when her childhood home needed the roof done.

Okay, even an occasional ant here and there is just too much. They need to stay outside! Know that if one is inside there are many more lurking about that haven't been noticed.

Think the 24 hour grocerys depends on the location. Others close at 11pm or so.

Hopefully your weather will warm enough for the steam clean of all the birdhouses and for the flock to sit outside and preen and soak in the sunshine. Good that you just defer to Mario and know that your mom can always refill the food dish.

Think Cookie or the ninjas told us a long time ago that even if we didn't have a guess, just flying in and blogging will enter one in the jukebox drawing.

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

  Hi Peepers!!
Sunshine runs over into his wings. We've pretty much have only been getting on to leave BOTM votes lately. Mom has gotten burnt out doing tons of blogging. Don't blame her!! Nothing much happening down here in Texas. Same boring hot weather as normal. Wedding plans sound wonderful right now. My fister Poppy is mourning the loss of her fiancé Lupe'. He crossed the RB last week. So, maybe this would cheer her up
All My Love,
Sunshine

  Hi Peepers
It's best to have someone who knows what to do with plumbing! Doing it yourself can be a real mess. Mom's brother tried one time to fix a pipe for mom and she heard him say things she's never heard him say before or since. They ended up with a plumber anyway.
Today might be mom's last day blogging for a couple of days. Tomorrow is the surgery, and the follow up appointment is on Friday, so we may not be back until Saturday.
It got really chilly here today, not expected to get out of the low 40s, and there's a possibility of some snow flurries. I say SPRING is no time for snow! Phooey!
Mom cleaned the outdoor raptor mews and aviaries today then did the middle room of the hospital called the Runs. It's for a wide variety of animals, but there were all birds in there today, except for one snapping turtle. She hasn't done that room for awhile, so it was interesting to her.
Then she went to the grocery store to get our veggies and fruits, since she didn't go yesterday. (She and Lena had walked to lunch and back, so she had to come straight home to put in the eye drops the doc wants her to use.) After buying our goodies, mom went to the nail salon to get the polish removed from one nail on each hand prior to the surgery. Tonight she has to go back to the center for a class on animal medicine, but she's going to get some laundry done before she leaves.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of attention and maybe some sun and warm weather, too. Hugs, Willie

Today we are visiting Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. There are many wildlife animals that include: koalas, kangaroos, Tasmanian devils, wombats, echidnas, and various species of reptiles as well as the platypus.

There are also many Australian parrots and cockatoos as well as other Australian birds.

This was founded in 1927 and it is the oldest and largest koala sanctuary in the world.

  Hi, Peepers
The parronts were always annoyed having to deal with the yearly ant invasion and so glad not to see any inside the house since getting the termite treatment with the tent. We assume getting the outside treatment helps ensure it.

Very breezy here yesterday and only a lil bit of so called rain in the early morning. Next chance for rain will be Fri. We'll see.

When the parronts were lil nothing was open on Easter. So if ran out of anything were just outta luck. Not sure, but one year mom's store decided to open and since so many shoppers has continued it. Think our grocery stays open too, but closes in the evening for their employees to have Easter dinner (usually open 24 hours) and then would reopen the next morning at 6am. Used to be that volunteers were asked to work, but now they just schedule whoever, but sure could ask for it off ahead of time if wanted.

Sometimes mom sees us eating out of the 'wrong' bowl but normally we do eat of the bowl that is 'ours'. Silver has the one on the left (looking from outside) and Pearl has the one on the right nearest to the birdhouse door.

Did we leave a blog on NTT? We did fly over and saw the 'wish' songs, but only knew the last one! Our mom has a fave wish song (not included) and it's the same title as one of dad's but different songs, different groups.

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

  Hi Peepers
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, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
That's good the parronts were able to tackle some of the yard work and get it clean and trimmed. Yuck to ants! We would get an invasion in winter when it would rain and drive 'em inside. However, after we had the house termited tented a couple of years back and get the monthly outside treated no more ants inside the house! Hopefully you don't get any either.

Yeah, those temps are rather chilly for going outside. Think you need some 70s and sun and only gentle breezes.

It is tough to have work on the w/e or evenings when family functions are going on and have to miss 'em. Good that there was lots of leftover things for skinsis and others to munch on.

We also have multiple perches and dishes and usually we eat at 'our' food dishes, but occasionally one of us will peck the other to move in order to take over. Not sure why and mom always says the food's the same in each bowl etc.

We will display our new jukebox with pride! Thanks again!

Well, yesterday was sure a success. The food was delicious, the company was a lot of fun, and mom even got a haircut in the middle of it all! Her colored deviled eggs were a huge success, so next year, she's going to make even more. They disappeared in a hurry. Some people weren't even here yet, so they never even saw them.
Three of us had a taste of the wedding soup and some salad, too. Falco didn't, of course!
Today mom picked up the eye meds she has to do before and after surgery. She also dropped off wedding soup to Mary at the nail salon. At the center, she did birds and the outdoor ground hog cage. There are some interesting birds in the avian nursery, a yellow bellied sapsucker, for instance. They are always fun to see up close. There are about 6 screech owls in there, too. Anyway, she's home and ours for the rest of the day! Hope you are having the bright sunshine we are getting today. We're supposed to go up into the low 70s, mom hopes that's true! Here's a hug for you, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
Sounds like the family had a wonderful Easter with so much goodies have enough for today as well. How awesome that Candi and Carmie got along so well together. Talking too? No pics? Guess your mom wasn't being sneaky enough with the camera.

It was quite busy at mom's work yesterday. Many other stores weren't open for the truly last minute shopper. However, other shoppers were kids spending their Easter bunny $$ so that's good they could do that.

Sometimes we want each other's perches too and usually give a lil peck to get the other to move somewhere else. Although there have been times one chased the other, so understand why Mario does that to you.

Hopefully you'll get warmer temps to make it more pleasant to prune the hydrangea. Being in the 40s will be very cold on the hands.

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

PS: We won a jukebox? Awesome!

  Hi, Peepers
We look forward to seeing the flower pics. Those cinnamon rolls and anise biscotti sound sooooo yummy. Mom's made both of those before but not lately. She made pumpkin bread and apple crisp yesterday for today, but both already have been sampled. Since mom has to work today it'll just be the family tonight anyway.

Hmmmm, guess after all this time you and Mario aren't gonna suddenly like each other. Good that you respect each other enough to share the birdhouse and don't end up in endless beak battles.

That wild turkey must've gotten separated from the flock. Hopefully it won't be dodging traffic again and all the wild turkeys are safe. Well, if Nana is by the woods it is no wonder see 'em occasionally.

Hopefully your temps will be warmish and no rain today.

Happy Easter to all. Wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

  Hi Peepers
Mom made our Easter bread yesterday, which is pretty much an all day affair. There are so many eggs in it, it takes forever to rise. She also did the hard custard, so it's in the fridge. She decided to do deviled eggs and dye the egg whites this year, so they are in the fridge as well. This way, people will eat them and she won't end up with a dozen hard boiled eggs. Last night she found a fish fry at a local church, so that's where she got dinner. It wasn't as good as the place she usually goes, though.
Today mom worked the Easter Egg Hunt at the museum. Guess where they put her? Yep, Bird Hall with a trainee. It was fun, the kids were so excited and the touchables were a hit, too. Everyone who stopped got a plastic egg with an owl shaped eraser inside.
Now mom is making the wedding soup for tomorrow. All in all it's going to be a good dinner, we think. We will get a sample of pasta and veggies, and maybe some salad out of it. Falco won't eat any, but the rest of us will enjoy the treats. Hope you are having a good day, warm, sunny, and filled with love. Happy Easter! Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
Well, our mom didn't look to see where that Qtip was going, heehee. We're just glad it is all over for a year! For you and Mario to preen each other means you'd have to be next to each other and sounds like that doesn't happen. Good that you let your mom help groom the areas you can't reach.

Was that a wild turkey running in the road? Our mom's never seen one in the wild. Imagine they are huge and hopefully got out of the way of all the cars.

Continued 70s and sunny here. Hopefully you'll get that warm up for Sun.

  Hi Peepers
They already started to replace the trees along one of the roads in the park. Mom drives that way to the museum. The new ones are pretty, and mom thinks they were bought with an eye towards their hardiness around gas fumes and other air pollutants, since they're on a road.
Well, it's Good Friday, so mom made the Easter bread dough this morning. She usually does it today because she doesn't have museum or wildlife center responsibilities.
Bree came yesterday and Falco gave her and mom a run for their money! She flew all over the place until Bree finally caught her in mom's lightweight jacket, because the towel wasn't big enough. She left all of us our wings, though, because Daisy still hasn't learned manners with us birds, and mom wants all of us to have an escape, just in case.
I was the drama king, as usual, crying before Bree even got near me with the clippers. Mom thinks I'm so funny! Peppino was okay, except he bit mom pretty hard because she let his head out of the towel. She'll learn in time. We all got Falco's favorite treat, movie popcorn nutriberries, when Bree was done. She always says Millie and Lily are the best behaved, and they never want a treat for it.
Today, as well as the Easter bread, mom will boil eggs for deviled eggs, and make the hard custard that the family calls Easter Cheese. Everyone looks forward to it each year. Hope you are enjoying some sunshine today. It's a bit overcast here, but pretty nice, and it's supposed to hit the 70s on Sunday! I'll believe that when I see it, though. Here's a big hug today for you! Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
Glad that your family was past the point of all the accidents with the wet roads and the flying ice. Even when one is driving slower and taking precautions never know about others speeding or as you say the uncontrolled nature of things like ice or splashed water making it hard to see.

Hopefully your temps will warm up before summer hits! We continue to be in the 70s here.

Think our dad rototilled the area the lawn was gonna go before he did the lawn. Still had to deal with roots but was a tad easier.

Yup, our mom'll make a couple of things for Sun dinner on Sat as she surely won't want to do much after she comes home from work.

We got our well bird check yesterday. After the poking and prodding our beaks were polished and claws trimmed. We weren't happy, but at least there was some millet in our birdhouse upon our return.

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

  Hi Peepers
Thanks for that recipe, now mom can't wait to try it.
The trees need to be taken away, they've lived their life spans and if they fall now, they could damage cars and people by falling into the street. The botany curator at the museum talked the parks people into leaving the healthier ones up for a few years more for a few reasons. It's nearly impossible to buy trees grown from seed any more. Most nurseries sell clones. This means they can get them out for sale in fewer years. Saplings must be cared for over a longer period before they can be sold. The bad news about that is with all clones, if something goes wrong with one, it will happen to all of them because there's no genetic diversity to fend off pests, fungi, or disease.
In trees grown from seeds, there is a natural genetic diversity, so they are not all susceptible to the same illnesses, etc. Anyway, Dr. Morton is collecting seeds from the healthier trees to add to the genetic diversity of the sycamore population and she is trying to talk the parks department into investing in saplings grown from seed rather than the cheaper cloned trees.
Sorry for boring you with all that, mom is off the soapbox now. We hope sis has a fruitful day at the surgeon, gets some good information and some dates so she knows when she can be feeling better. Hope also that you are having a good day and not freezing. Hugs, Willie

What a beautiful day we are having for our trip. Everybirdie is having such a good time. There is an activity planned for each night on the boat.

Last night, there was music and refreshments, just a time of fellowship for all of us to get to know one another better. Refreshments will be served all day today as well.

Tonight, we are going to see the movie Rio 2. There will be fresh popcorn and drinks for everybirdie.

**Did you know?? Ringneck doves are available in over 40 color mutations.

  Hi, Peepers
Our mom will be working on Sun, but that's her usual day anyway. Not sure what her meal plan will be but think she'll get some ham today and hide it for Sun! Think she'll have to make things on Sat as she won't want to do much when she comes home. Fresh baked bread and homemade cookies will be an awesome part of any meal.

Heard that the polar thingy is returning so a further delay of spring. At least you had a few days here and there of the sun and warmth. Saw that some areas are snowy or getting flooded so that's not good. It should be falling here instead where we need the water.

Think our dad put out seeds to do the lawn and it worked okay. Using sod works best and does take more work but looks great instantly! Many around here don't have lawns due to the droughts we've had. Ours is the drought resistant type and less area of lawn than we had in the past.

Usually when Cookie mentions NTT we do fly over and look but don't always blog. Mostly, we only know one or two and a few times were totally stumped then saw the answers and knew we should've known some!

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

  We are now leaving...
for our trip. We will be traveling for the next few days!

*There were so many birdies that signed up so late that we need to take two ships. There will be two pictures shown of our ships. If you signed up and your picture is not on the first ship, look on the profile tomorrow night or Thursday. All birdies that signed up are included on this trip. I am very happy to have so many of my BC friends joining me on this adventure.

Did you know that there are over 300 species in the dove family?

  Hi Peepers
Mom will look forward to that recipe, it sounds good. She bought a bunch of those really colorful mini peppers today, just because they are so pretty and sweet.
It sounds just awful to have that wood chipper going all day and the saws, too. Hope there is still some shade left when the guys are done. In Pittsburgh in one of our parks, there are trees planted along the streets which have basically lived out their lives. They are over 100 years old and will be replaced in the next few years by new trees. Mom will hate to see them go, though, they are beautiful sycamores. Hope you are having a good day today, it's snowing here! Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
Sounds like the wind was very strong if it whipped those area rugs all over the yard. At least they got the dust out and the wind dispersed it all. Think the plants will be happier waiting for a calmer day for pruning 'em. Good for the trees to be trimmed to help prevent power outages and with those strong winds for breaking any big branches that might do damage.

Our skinsis finds a lot of recipes online whether on a food network link or just other recipe places. Mom looks occasionally as well.

Hmmm, guess Kallie hasn't figured out if the beak is overgrown or otherwise not 'perfect' then makes it harder to eat and we assume he loves to eat.

That's good to get some assistance with all the leaves and such. Over the years the amount of dirt in our yard has been covered with and eggstended patio. The lawn is greatly reduced and only small areas available to garden. Less yard to deal with.

Mom's puter usually 'tells' her it'll update in 15 minutes and she can delay it, but sometimes she has the puter on while doing something else and comes back to it in a few minutes and then those updates take over.

Good that you and Mario can share without battling if you have enough perches and multiple food bowls.

Okay, we flew over to NTT and didn't know many, but guessed the theme.

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

  Lifespan of a Diamond Dove
The lifespan of the diamond dove is different in captivity than if living in the wild.

In captivity, the diamond dove usually lives about 12-15 years. With proper care, they can even live into their 20's.

In the wild, however, diamond doves only live 3-5 years.

  Hi Peepers
That stuffed garlic bread sounds heavenly! Mom is going to try it one day. What is essence, though? Can you get it at the supermarket? Is it under Emeril's name?
Mom had 2 trainees today, and it was an all bird day, so she was happy. She had them both get on the camo sheet and the ghillie suit and do the owlet with Martha. She couldn't go in there because there are only 2 suits, so she kind of watched through a corner of the curtain to see that they did right.
They went into the main aviary next, where there are a couple of blue jays, a cardinal and a starling. It's not too crowded in there yet, but they got to do the inside and the outside aviaries. Last but not least, they did the avian nursery. Again, no babies yet, but several cages to be cleaned anyway. Those birds included screech owls, pigeons, doves, a woodpecker, a jay, and a yellow bellied sapsucker. It was a good variety, so the trainees got to deal with a lot of birds. The dove escaped and mom showed them how to catch it calmly and replace it in the cage.
This afternoon we think Bree is coming to trim nails and maybe wings. Mom is still thinking about the wings part, because of Daisy dog. She wants us to be able to get away if necessary. Mom is about ready for a haircut, too, so maybe Lena will be coming over as well. It's not as pretty as it was over the weekend, but it's still pleasantly warm. Hope you are having a good day. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
Continues to be in the low 70s and sunny for us so very nice out, but need rain still. Your rose bushes can wait a lil while for pruning.

Thanks for telling us about the garlic bread. Anything that is carmelized is tasty. (Mom isn't fond of Emeril so would never have seen anything he made on his show.)

That's good to get the assistance of skinsis for the beak trim on your frothers. Not sure why Kallie would keep sticking out his tongue, oh, probably to get your mom to quit the trim, heehee.

We figured that your yard waste might turn into compost like we have here, but too bad you have to haul it there as transporting leaves and stuff is messy when they are damp.

Yeah, gotta be something that gets in Mario's way of moving his tail around. 'Tiel tails are long so not surprising that he bangs it on a perch or something.

We'll try to fly over the NTT later to see the lyrics. Mom is behind sending out blogs this morning and won't finish before leaving for work as the puter was doing updates.

Thanks for liking our derby pic!

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

  Hi Peepers
It's a c/p night again, sorry! Mom had a busy day yesterday, even though she wasted a couple of hours going to that event. There was a mix up and they weren't expecting her, so there was no table for her to set things up. They offered her a tray table, like you'd set a TV dinner or snack on, but she was worried about children knocking over the quails' cage, so she declined and drove back to the center.
It has been a gorgeous weekend, and some of our daffodils have finally bloomed! Today it hit over 80 degrees, YAY! Mom attended a parrot raising class this morning, then another meeting for a new group called BirdSafe Pittsburgh. They are recruiting volunteers to walk the city early in the morning during spring and fall migrations to pick up any injured migratory birds in the city and get them to the wildlife center for rehabilitation. Mom offered to transport birds a couple of days a week.
Once she got home and cleaned our cages, it was evening and she was tired, so she sat in front of the TV staring stupid all night! Anyway I hope you had a glorious day and got some sun and attention. Hugs, Willie
