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!.

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!.

  Hi Peepers
Insurance companies are awful! Hope mom gets the car fixed soon, though. A cookout with the family sounds perfect.
Yesterday mom found ribs at a good price, and baked them last night so she could cut and freeze individual portions. We don't cook out, because mom is alone and has no need for a grill, so she will barbecue them in the toaster oven at some point. Our neighbor brought corn on the cob, too; today we all got corn! (Well, Falco got a couple of kernels to see if she would eat them; we and Maxine got slices of corn on the cob to eat.)
The pool opened yesterday. Mom went up for about 3 hours, and got a bit of sun. All her friends who sit in the same spots were there, so they all got caught up on each other's lives. It's funny, they don't see or talk to each other all winter long, but they are still friends.
We have a new iris in bloom, mom thinks it's called wildebeest or gnu or something like that. It's striped purple and white. We'll try for a pic and see if anyone can identify it. Mom doesn't remember where it came from.
Today is a pool day for a couple of hours, then mom has to go to a double birthday party. Her grand nephew and her grand niece are celebrating their 11th and 10th birthdays, respectively. The little girl plays softball, and is pretty busy every weekend, so they decided to combine the parties into one. That's fine with mom, for sure!
I hope you are having a bright sunshiny day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
Skinsis just wonders how old the grand will be when she grows taller than her mom. The parronts do enjoy spending time with the baby and seeing her learn and change.

At mom's grocery the gas points eggspired after awhile so maybe that happened to your mom. Some items don't qualify towards earning points either so that could be it too.

Sounds like separate birdhouses are best for most fids. We only share since it was obvious we would be upset being separated. If we'd ended up battling all the time the parronts would've gotten another birdhouse but they are happy we together. We've never nipped each other's feet, whew!

Staying cool here so far. At least the sun came out earlier yesterday so it was nicely spring. Mom started knitting another washcloth since dad mentioned wanting to give one to a coffee shop friend. Mom knows the guy is a retired pilot and had seen an airplane one so is making that.

The three 'tiels all open their wings wide for a big group 'tiel wing hug and hold on tightly. They always feel Angel Mario's wings surrounding them as they sway and hum in contentment.

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

  Hi Peepers
I hope mom gets to stay home for the weekend, too. Did the insurance people get back to her? Are you planning a big cookout for the family?
The pool opens today, and it will be 66 at noon when the doors open, so mom is thinking of going up there a little later on, maybe 1 or 2. She slept in this morning, so got a late start with feeding us and walking the dogs, so that's her excuse. The sun is beautiful today, we think it will warm up quickly. We had a frost warning last night, but mom didn't cover anything and it was okay, there was no frost here.
I hope you are enjoying the start of the long weekend, and planning some fun in the sun. Get lots of cuddles and scritches, too. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
Weather here was blah again, but sun did show up sooner than the previous day. Skinsis called mom after work as she wanted to hang out waiting for hubby to get off work. So mom picked her and the grand up and they went grocery shopping then came here. They ate and played. The grand is standing more but still not walking quite yet. Dad took some new pics but who know how long till he downloads and sends a copy to mom.

What a busy, busy day your mom, Nana and skinsis had there. Good they got all the errands and bills taken care of and know our mom would be so tired of having to haul trash to the dump every week. Mom's so glad she's able to use her gas points as when the program first started there were no places nearby to use 'em at. Every bit of savings helps.

Normally mom lets us battle a bit but if those wings open up and we start squawking loudly then she intervenes. We haven't been anywhere near as bad as we were last year. Certainly wouldn't want a beak injury.

The three 'tiels all open their wings wide for a big group 'tiel wing hug and hold on tight for a long time. They are basking in the love and joy of friendship.

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

PS: Oh, we won another theme pic, right? Could we get the 5th pic - the open book one? No rush, let us know when it is ready if sent in email since mom doesn't check that everyday.

  Hi Peepers
Our bleeding hearts are finished for the year, so mom didn't take any pics. The rest are pretty, though.
Mom has a booboo on her leg that she didn't even know happened. Yesterday when she left the museum, the car door slammed into her shin (because she's clumsy sometimes) and it hurt, but mom didn't think anything of it. Last night when she was getting ready for bed, she saw that she had bled on her khaki pants! There was a huge wound on her leg as well. It doesn't hurt, but it will take awhile to heal.
Today mom worked in the avian nursery, and she had the 20 minute timer as well. Every 20 minutes she had to feed the smallest babies in the incubator, and of course, clean their nests and paper underneath, too, because what's going in one end seems to push out what's at the other end. She managed, between 20 and 45 minute feedings, to clean only 6 other cages. The avian nursery is pretty full right now, with robins, sparrows, starlings, mourning doves, pigeons, a cedar waxwing, a woodpecker, a little screech owl, crows, etc. The 6b ducklings in one of the cages got a fake mom today. Mom found the decoys they use for moms, and popped one in there on the heating pad. The babies will gather round it for comfort once it heats up a little.
After the center, she went shopping for fruits and veggies for us. Now she's home, and after doing our blogs, will plant the strawberry, gooseberry, and peppers that our neighbor left for us. We are under a frost advisory for tonight, so mom will have to look for some sheets for the tender stuff she is planting today. Everything else should be okay.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
Guess next time a Macy's trip is taken they'll know which end to park on to get to the section they wanna shop at. When the parronts went they didn't know that the housewares and such are in the men's section.

Yeah, the feather dust is everywhere and good we are molting at the same time to get it over with together. The air cleaner will be run more. So far so big beak battles and we've never hurt each other though at times it does sound like it.

Haven't tried PB Cheerios. We've had the plain and the medley versions. Right now mom has some bran stick cereal (used in the muffins) and rice chex. Both are sooooo yummy.

Glad the ant invasion has been staying away. That is just so yucky when they are crawling around inside the house.

Sometimes boring days are the best without any rushing off to do anything and no timetable to get things done. Can read or do some crafts in between chores.

  Hi Peepers
Mom and Aunt Ginny both liked the movie! It was funny, sad, and a lot of things in between. The Chinese food was tasty too, but we only got to eat the fortune cookie, because mom thought there were onions and garlic in the sauces.
It's really cold again today, high of 56, but we don't think it's anywhere near there yet. Mom took lots of flower pics, so will post them on all 3 pages. There are 19 or so new pics. It's a good thing she took the azalea pics yesterday, because it rained overnight and with the cool weather and rain, many of the flowers have dropped off the bushes already.
Today mom had 2 tours, both from the same school district, and both in Dinosaurs. The kids were 4th graders, which is the grade mom likes best. So her time at the museum was lots of fun this morning. Later we will get our cages cleaned, and mom will go to dinner with Aunt Renee. Aunt Renee is leaving next week to go to Texas and celebrate her namesake's 90th birthday. Mom will have a card ready for her to take to Aunt Lorene when she goes.
Not much new, enjoy the flowers! Hope you are having a good day with sunshine, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
The Macy's at one mall here has the women's dept at one end and the men's at the other. Would have to walk a looooooong way to get to shop at both. One time the parronts parked near one then found what they wanted to look at (rugs) was located at the other one!

That's great Nana's mail is now getting into the new box near her garage so won't be having to go across the street for it. Really makes more sense since so much safer for the residents to have it close to the house.

We are dropping feathers left and right. Guess with two of us it looks like we shouldn't have any left! So far we haven't had any big beak battles with mom having to intervene. Last time we were so mean to each other. Got some yummy broccoli last night. Later some cereal since we heard the crinkling of mom getting herself some.

  Hi Peepers
Why is it that insurance company people are so nasty? They are always willing to take your money, but when you have a claim, they're reluctant to give it up.
Today we're in the middle of a cool spell. It's around 50, if that, and breezy. Mom is okay with the cool weather, as long as it warms up by Saturday, which is opening day for the pool.
Today mom had 2 tours, one at 10:10 and one at 12:30, so she had over an hour between. She took a book to the museum to read, so it wasn't so bad. The first tour was PA Natural History, so that was fun with third graders. They had a museum quest after the tour, so mom handed out materials for that when she got done. A quest is like a scavenger hunt in the hall on the sheet. This group stayed in North American and Botany Halls to complete their quest. The second group was another 3rd grade but it was the World of Dinosaurs. We all know how much mom loves doing dinos, so that was a fun tour.
Tonight Aunt Gin is bringing dinner with her, and she and mom will watch a movie here. It's called This is where I leave you, I think, and it should be good.
I hope you are having good weather there, not as cool as it is here, and that you are getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
Think all GPS systems warns one that they should be aware that some directions might not be accurate. Having a paper map to go with the GPS would be a good thing.

Our mom has a recipe for chocolate zucchini cupcakes. So moist and would never think zucchini was in it if didn't see the lil green bits in it. Mom made 'em for one of skinsis birthday parties.

Have to agree the natural sunlight is best for doing things as certainly don't want to mess up trimming the claws and polishing/shaping the beaks. Our mom doesn't do our grooming as we aren't plagued with over grown or misshapen beaks so only have it done once or twice a year at the vets.

We are gonna keep our wings crossed that the car ins com gets to the bottom of the neighbors story. They must have changed it. Would be hard for your mom to hit a bumper going sideways and she was already out in the street so had the right of way. Best to not confront the neighbors. Let the ins folk deal with it. That is their job.

Yikes! Power outage and pouring rain? At least the flocks needs were met with the feeding and the cleaning.

  Hi Peepers
Wow, look at all those new pics, they are neat. I bet mom was so happy to spend the day at home and do what she wanted to do. Is the car getting fixed yet?
Last night mom worked a special event at the museum and showed lots of folks around dinosaur hall. It's funny, because at some of the special events, the people invited just want to go to the balcony to eat and drink, while at others, like last night, they are happy to see something special before they go to the balcony. There was live music as well as food and drink for everyone.
Today mom went shopping for flowers again, she says for the last time this year, hahaha. She got her peace rose, her pink clematis, and some scented geraniums with a couple of miniature coral salvia and some streptocarpella for the porch planter. She also bought a new planter, it's a tiny wheelbarrow. She got geraniums, dianthus, and vinca for that. She also moved all the house plants outside for their summer vacation. Our little citrus tree has something green on it. Mom thinks it might be a little orange! So that should take care of the plantings in containers for this year. Now to get the tomatoes and peppers in the ground, and we're ready to take pics to share with you.
I hope you are having a great day. After a quick storm last evening, it's been beautiful here, sunny and warm. I also hope you get lots of cuddles and scritches today. Hugs, Willie

Mom knew the price of the unknown item just wasn't sure where it was located in the store to put the sale sign on it. The reason she didn't spot it as it is in a locked case behind glass. Wonder if anyone will buy it...?

Oh, yeah, skinsis has the GPS on her iPhone too. Think most smart phones have 'em these days (not that mom has a smart phone) but dad has the regular GPS that plugs into the car. Mrs. Garmin tells him where to go but often gives funny directions too.

On the odd occasion mom shops at Big lots and dollar tree she won't buy any brand she's never heard of. Getting paper goods is okay though.

MMMmmmmm, all those goodies sound so yummy. Love pumpkin stuff. Mom usually makes a bread with cranberries and nuts. She still needs to make a zucchini bread here since she bought the zucchini for it.

Hopefully the steam will help to unclog Dixie's Nare so he can breath better. The flock must've loved being outside in the fresh air and sunshine and getting the showers. Yuck to the nail trim but know that we'll be subject to that soon.

We had some pasta yesterday too. Mom just puts it in a bowl on the bottom of our birdhouse so we have to go down there to get it. We always race each other to get to it but usually Pearl is there first.

Peter's place sounds fantastic with babies and rescues all there to look at. Does he sell that food, too? That's wonderful. Mom is hooked on Goldenfeast products for our afternoon meals now. She gives Maxine and me the Madagascar Delite and the conure blend, and she gives Peppino the tropical fruit blend IV that's chopped up really fine. Even Falco tries the pepitas in the Madagascar mix!
Well, you know about best laid plans, right? So mom didn't get to that new Mexican place, as they are closed on Sunday. Instead, they went to Ali Baba's in Oakland for some Middle Eastern food. It was really good, too. There were a couple of graduations and a baccalaureate Mass going on, though, so there was a lot of traffic to contend with.
Today at the center mom had the bunny room again, and she got to release 6 bunnies! She is always happy when it's time to let the animals go home, and they release bunnies on their property because they get too stressed being moved by car anywhere else. Before you ask, there are about 16 acres there so the bunnies have good homes.
After her shift, she went to the nail salon to get a cracked nail repaired. She will be ready for a manicure soon, but not today since she is working a special event at the museum tonight. Mom will be in Dinosaur Hall for 3 hours this evening, showing adults the place and talking about the great collection we have at the Carnegie.
Tomorrow mom and Aunt Renee are going flower shopping again. Hopefully she will find the pink clematis she's looking for, as well as the peace rose. There's only one more long planter to fill, and the porch/patio/yard will be done for this year. All that's left is putting out the fountain.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

I see you got my new pictures up so I can get my prize pic! And I won yesterday again!! That is so awesome! These pics are just so beautiful. I know the two I want but I will have to get the pictures to you. First, I want the one with the two big square pictures, next to the book, and the other one I would like the three pics on the easels. I remember last time you told me I did win and you were going to get more pics up. Thanks for finding some new ones for me. I know you didn't have a lot of time with the accident and all you were going through. I appreciate you posting them.

Did mom ever get things settled with the insurance company? I really hope everything works out for her.

  Hi, Peepers
Gosh, what a busy, busy day for your mom, skinbro and Nana. Sounds like that GPS needs updated maps since it kept the family going in circles (eggspecially with no car a/c and temps so high). Hope skinsis is feeling better since know she misses getting out more.

We have big lots and dollar tree near us too but mom rarely goes. It isn't that far but not in the area she usually shops. Might warrant a special trip though just to check if anything good.

Another busy Sun for mom yesterday. She did mostly finish putting out all the ad signs before the store opened. There was one item she didn't know what it was and looking at the online didn't help since it didn't show what the packaging looked like. She gave the sign to the manager and he discovered it was some kinda wireless speaker for iPods and the like. Cost over $100 regular price! Yikes!

Hopefully your mom will be able to finish all the chores and do a better cleaning job on the birdhouses.

  Hi Peepers
I bet you and Celine like being your own flock again, too, it gives you more one on one time with your mom.
Mom didn't find the clematis or the rose she wanted, so no big holes were dug yesterday.
Mom went flower shopping yesterday, but since she was with her sister, she still didn't get enough. (There is only so much room in her car.) There is one long planter on the porch that's still empty. She did buy 2 more hanging baskets, though, and enough flowers to finish the patio. She was fortunate enough to find 3 different colors of osteospermum, or African Daisy. She loves the colors on those guys! It's a good thing she got it all planted yesterday, though, because we're supposed to get rain all day today.
Mom will get laundry done, and later she and her daughter and son in law will celebrate Mother's Day with a dinner out at a new Mexican Restaurant they haven't tried yet.
I hope you are having a great day, filled with spring weather, cuddles, and scritches all for you. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
The corporate folk are not necessarily in CA. The store's HQ is in New Jersey. Often they want to see multiple stores but normally end up at only one or two.

Skinsis got the laundry done but left the dishes for hubby. Said he promised to do 'em as a Mother's day gift. She did other chores (garbage, vacuum, bathroom clean, bathe baby) instead.

It is good if the coworker and wife have the advice from your mom in caring for a new fid. Sometimes that is all that is needed to ensure success having someone to ask questions of. We imagine Dixie was so proud to show off his skills since he can't perform any longer.

Not much going on with mom's day off. The parronts did the shopping and mom did a bit of reading later.

The three 'tiels all open their wings wide for a big group 'tiel wing hug and hold on tight. Never, ever get enough of their shared joy and friendship.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Hi Peepers
I bet sis really missed you and Celine. It's good too, because now Mom Rose will have a little more time with the flock at her home, and you will get a little more time with your mom, too.
Today and tomorrow mom is off! What a good break for her. (They are short handed at the center tomorrow, so she might break down and go up there for an hour or so.) She did this deliberately to give herself time to plant. This afternoon she is going out with her sister to a local nursery to finish buying annuals for the planters that aren't done yet. She is thinking of buying a pink clematis if one is available, as well as a new rose, maybe a peace rose. She has always loved the colors of the peace rose.
We just saw Kiddo's announcement on the calendar page about the Renaissance Faire for the June Milonga, how exciting that's going to be! I can't wait to see the costumes. I hope you are having a great spring day with lots of sun, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Willie

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

  Hi, Peepers
Wow, another busy, busy day for your mom, Nana and skinsis. Good to get both of 'em out and about to their normal activities.

Glad that the car ins paperwork is all complete to get the claim started and hopefully the car repair done. Hopefully your mom won't have to pay anything out of pocket? When our mom's car got hit (not her fault) the other person car ins paid it all which is as it should be when one's car is stopped and then gets hit by another.

That was not the first time a bigwig scheduled to visit does a noshow. Sometimes they change plans and go to another store. Sometimes they are on a later flight. The store managers would rather they not come anyway, heehee.

Skinsis called mom as she was leaving work yesterday so she went over to watch the grand while chores were being done. Well, the laundry and dishes couldn't be done as the hot water was out! So, while the repair was going on they went shopping instead. When they got back it was done then and mom got to see the grand standing more and taking a couple of steps before falling and crawling. Skinsis says she's been doing that for a week or more and still finding her balance to truly walk.

The three 'tiels all open their wings wide for a big group 'tiel wing hug and hold on tight. They so savor their friendship and feel Angel Mario surrounding them with love each day. Eventually they part and picking up their instruments begin to sing 'River Bank' by Brad Paisley.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Hi Peepers
It's so nice that you and Celine got to go back home with sis, I know she missed you a lot.
Mom had the bunny room to clean at the center today, YAY! Except that there are about 75 bunnies in there, that is. That's a lot of cleaning and feeding. The staff took care of intubating and feeding the littlest ones, so mom just had to feed ones who were eating bunny salad. Litters share the same cage, so there were only about 15 or so cages. One litter had 10 little ones in it! When mom finished in there, she told the staff they would need more apples, carrots, and greens for the bunnies eating salad, so they sent her to the store. She bought a few pounds of each, as well as some berries for the birds, and some distilled water to wash everything in for the bunnies. By that time, her shift was well over, so she came home and sat in the sun for an hour. Now we are getting our blogs done, and later we will get to go out, too. Mom doesn't like us in the noonday sun, but after 3 it's still pretty nice here.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of fresh air, sunshine, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
Wow, what a busy, busy day for your mom. Good to get all the car ins things going at last. Hopefully the forms can get filled out correctly so no delays.

That is very irksome the doc office wants one there early to do paperwork but then to not be there? Don't think the parronts ever had the first appointment so never had that happen. Good for skinsis to get out despite having to use two crutches as not only the fresh air but the eggercize will help her heal faster. (We know you and Celine will be providing lots of birdie therapy.)

We got some rain yesterday. It came in fits and starts but enough to get the gutters going. By early afternoon the sun was out. Glad your flock got outside for some sun and showers. We are beginning to molt so mom's probably gonna give us showers soon too.

The visit must've gone well as the asst manager mom talked to yesterday said he didn't hear any complaints. Later the store manager told her the second day big wig didn't arrive after all.

Thanks for liking our beach pic. Mom thinks she should've tweaked it more but didn't have time and just wanted to swap out our derby pic.

The three 'tiels all open their wings wide for a big group 'tiel wing hug and hold on tight for a long time. Soon they are swaying and humming. Silver & Pearl grab guitars as Peepers joins in with his drums to sing 'Gonna Take A Lot of River' by the Oak Ridge Boys.

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

  Hi Peepers
Mom had 2 tours again today, and she liked both groups even though they were first and second grades. They had enough chaperones to herd them and keep them focused, which made it easier.
After a stop at Trader Joe's on the way home, she got back to us and our blogs. She will walk the dogs when she finishes the blogs, we think. Tonight is cage cleaning night again. I know, she just pressure washed the cages, but you know how we all are, they all need wiped down again.
We posted the pics of the fox and the owlets with Martha on our pages, so everyone can see them. Hope you like them.
I hope also that you are having a good day there, and getting springlike temps. It's in the mid 60s here, which is good for walking and working outside, but not good enough for us to go out. Get lots of loving today! Hugs, Willie

  Hi, Peepers
That is good to get all the errands done despite the temps being rather cold. Can't recall what kinda mailbox the house had when the parronts bought it. Think it was on the small side so dad eventually found a larger, locking one. Not sure where he got it but gotta be one of the home improvement type places like Home Depot. He ended up mounting it on our short fence near the sidewalk instead of on the house itself like most places. Hopefully Nana will find one that goes on her side of the street.

Good the appointment is made for the car to be looked at and get that process started. Hope he is prompt so your mom can do all her other errands.

We'll let you know how the bigwigs liked the way the store looked. Can't imagine what they'd be unhappy about as it looked darned good and everyone worked hard to make it so.

Glad to know we aren't the only ones that used the water dish as a potty. We don't do it much but if we do it is always overnight and when uncovered it can get cleaned immediately before we try to drink out of it.

Took mom awhile to find a new bottle of the clear aloe vera at the store. All she sees is the green ones and can't stand that. When she did find it was the only one!

The three 'tiels all open their wings wide for a big group 'tiel wing hug and hold on tight for a long time. Their joy and happiness can never be beat.

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

PS: Flew by NTT earlier!

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Hi Peepers
Mom is fine, it was just that one day, and she should have known better than to be out in the hot sun working without hydrating.
Today mom had 2 tours at the museum, one about animals, and one 3 cultures tour in the anthropology section. It was a fun day, and she didn't have to think about if she had already said something to the group, since the topics were so different. Tonight mom went to a baby bird class at the center. The volunteers have to attend classes every year for the baby care, because sometimes things change from year to year, and it never hurts to have a refresher. Some of the diets have changed recently. This year they are also using different nests for baby birds. Mom is going to crochet some as soon as she has a free moment or 2. They used to use those plastic tomato or strawberry baskets, stuff them with tissue, and make nests, but the knitted and crocheted ones are so much nicer. They are soft, round, and come in a variety of sizes from hummingbird to crow.
It was really cool here today, didn't get above 50, and we had clouds all day long. Tomorrow it's supposed to be near 70 again, though. I hope you had a good day and got lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie
