New Private Bird Club Website Sign Up & Info
Hi Every birdie! Squeaky's mom is working with two web designers to build a new and improved but similar bird club for us to play on since our beloved BC will be deleting our Bird eClub sometime this year! We need your support! So start nagging your parronts so we can stay together!
Basically, the more parronts that sign up, the cheaper the initial set up fee will be and also the annual fee to join the site. For more information and to sign up to participate please visit my page 28415 and leave an email address. Or you can email my mom, Sunny, directly at our email nubinskis@aol. com. She will send you all the up to date information that has been sent so far and she can answer all your questions. She also told me to tell you that all ideas and suggestions are most welcome. She also is hoping to find some parronts that have some expertise in working with advertisers and who would volunteer to get advertisers for the site. If that happens, costs would be next to nothing or maybe even nothing for all of us to play together.
So send your parronts to my page 28415 or email us to get information, leave suggestions and to sign up!
Hugs and Love to all! Squeaky, Picabo & Scion

  Hi Cori and Boo boo
Mom says there are lots of acorns on the ground on the trail too so that is good.
I didn’t like how my jungle talk toy sounded and it never did get better. Mom was sure it was going to be a matter of time and I would be talking like it did so she bought a few up stairs and got one working that has the normal sound in it now. Of course I had to check out the other ones that mom had for parts and helped one of them down the steps …clunk, clunk, clunk. That one didn’t work before and it didn’t work after either. Oh well I am all set with the one I have now so I am a happy fid again. “The only thing wrong with fids, is that they can’t live forever.“ Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Oh does my Mom know what that's like because she can never take any really good pictures of me because I try and attack the camera on her and all she gets if she gets any pictures of me are ones with my beak in attack mode!Like in my Halloween pic!It would be so cute to see BooBoo in her little nest though!
Oh are there a gazillion acorns all over the ground here,whenever Mom tried to walk around the side of the garage to hang out laundry she would be stepping all over them and my dad had to try and rake them up!The animals and squirrels sure aren't going after them to store them for their winter supplies!
I don't think the hawk wants your daddy's little doggie,they want something that has a little more meat to it!Mom only wishes that the hawk would come and grab the rat family that we have living under our rhododendrons that she's been trying to get rid of for the past year or so!Dad has to cut the rest of the rhodies back so there will be absolutely no protection for the rat family!
Mom finally heard from Dixie's vet and he had an infection that was caused by his beak and his sinuses and it was a cyst that they had to cut from the whites of his eye ring.He's got to finish taking the meds until they're gone,antibiotics and eye drops.
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses for my sweet Cori,Loving you always and forever,Kallie

  October BOTM POST number fifteen
Hi everybird, Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure POST. It is such a relief to be free from those creepy, crawly, ucky black Monster sized Spiders. I didn't wanta say anything but I think that some of them are the Giant Birdeater Spiders. "YUCK, is all I can say."
"Where are Sweetpepper, Apache and Pearl gone?" Kiddo asks in fear for his wife-bird and friends.
"Not again" Jesse says his yellow face turning a ghostly white. "they have to be here, I just saw them a moment ago!" Jesse brings to run back and forth searching under every bush, behind every tree and asks everybirdie, but he is unable to find his missing friends. Sadly he returns to where Sky is in deep conversation with Jake and Spot.
" We have to get to the Castle. We can't delay. Our friends are gone, and we have to save them." Sky's voice hesitates for a moment, before finishing his sentence, " before it's too late"
"Everybirdie" Jesse calls out loudly, " we are going to follow a path I found searching for Sweetpepper and the others. It looks well traveled, it must lead to the Castle. We have to hurry, it's getting late, the sun will be setting soon."
Jesse leads out, following the path, watching carefully for anything "odd" he might find along it. Everything is fine, and he begins to relax, the birdies are making greyt time, they will be safely at the Castle soon. Then he can return with help to find their missing friends.
"JESSE?" Spot flies up to walk with him, have you noticed anything weird?
"Nope, everything looks fine. WHY?" Jesse asks an edge of concern to his voice.
"No reason, well, maybe it might be odd, maybe not but have you noticed that every tree is planted beside another one that is the same?"
Jesse looks at the trees beside the path, and certainly it is true, every tree has a perfect match to it. He continues to watch as he walks quickly along. Every rock and every bush also has a double.
"Yeah, it sure is odd Spot." Jesse turns his head to speak to Spot and let's out a terrified scream, " SPOT? SPOT?" he yells in terror, as his eyes fall upon not one but two Spots. Jesse screams again, and a perfect echo follows, causing him to snap his head to the right to come beak to beak with "HIMSELF! AHHHHHHHHHHH!"
"SKY, JAKE, come quickly!" the two Jesse's scream in echo of one another. Jesse tries to get away from himself, but his double follows every move he makes. he sees Sky and Jake coming his direction, and stops. There are two of each of them, in fact everywhere Jesse looks there are two of everybirdie. The others realize that they too have a perfect double and fear spreads like fire among the group.
"Falco? BooBoo?" Hulk asks then backs away unsure of which one is the real Falco and the real BooBoo.

  Hi Cori
Crows and hawks are natural enemies and will always have issues. Not sure that hawk is after your doggie, but why take a chance?

Well, Mom got a call from her friend who is in the Master's program at CSUN about editing her paper that is due soon. Mom being the grammar queen, she loves helping out. And I love it, because it means she stayed home from zumba. As soon as they are done, Mom and I will share lunch and then go out for my sunbath. Then the rest of the day is mine!!

I wonder what is for dinner tonight? I sure did enjoy the thigh bone I got from last night's feast. Mom loved it, but I think she enjoyed the Hawaiian Sweet roll the most. 8 weeks without bread is a longggg time!

Don't forget that today is the last day to enter the costume contest for the Halloween milonga. And for those who have already entered your awesome costumes? Thanks!!

  Hi Cori
Today is a pretty lazy day for all of us. Mom got her nails done, then came home to be with us. She carried in the African violets a while back because of the weather, so today she's closing the fountain, bringing in the rest of the house plants, and maybe planting the amaryllis and paper whites her friend left for her. There is still a Boston fern outside, as well as a succulent dish garden. We hope they have both survived the chilly nights lately. If not, well, there's always the nursery next year.
I hope you are having a good day today, and getting lots of sun, cuddles, and kisses. Hugs, Falco

LOL. We understand .... Mom doesn't drink much though ... tends to upset the liver and kidneys too much :) Mom thinks they may have that Ebola bug under control but obviously will have to wait 42 days to be certain no new cases pop up! Mom has also been seeing that the Entrovirus (D68) is really wreaking havoc on our children of late .... mom hates those nastty bugs. Well I gotta run, have a terrific TOOsday, V4U. Hugs.

I hear that we will get up to the low 50's with sun! I sure hope they are right. I'm sick of rain and dark days.
Today was interrupted by a visit from a doe and fawn. They spent most of the day eating our grass. I squawked to them one time and they heard me. I was just saying hello and hope they enjoyed their dinner.
It was another night of internet problems. I'm finally on .... hope it's ok now.

  October BOTM POST number fourteen
Hello everybirdie, Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure POST. What a sticky, icky mess we have found ourselves in. Giant Spiders everywhere, and no where to run. Then all of a sudden I found a clearing. I was eggcited to see our way of escape, that is until the air is shattered by the terrified scream of Dixie.
Dixie is very upset and frightened about what the spiders would do to Little Ange. He runs in circles around the tree where she is hanging from their thick webs! Dixie screams for someone to come to his aid," Please help me reach my wife bird and cut her loose" He tries but is too small to reach her at this point! He asks permission to get on top of Poppa Sky's head so he can have a better reach of her and then pulling off a thick branch from the Mulberry tree to reach LA with, he stands carefully on Poppa Sky's head trying to balance with his twisted toes,all the while reaching up with the long branch to his Little Angel! Little Angel reaches down breaking through the webbing she is caught in and grabs the branch that Dixie is holding out to her, suddenly losing her balance she falls from the webbing and tumbles down onto Dixie, as both birds fall sliding down Poppa Sky's red feathered back!
Dixie kisses his Little Angel. "Oh Dixie you saved my life. I'm sure those black Monster Spiders were going to eat me for dinner." Little Angel sniffs, wiping a tear from her eye. Sky checks his little fister over and seeing she and Dixie are ok, he stands tall as he can, and looks intently around to find a way to escape from this mess. It is while he is busy searching that Jenny-Lynn arrives ta his side. "SKY, I have a plan." she whispers into Sky's ear. HE nods his red head several times as he listens to her plan. After she finishes he clears his voice to get everybirds attention.
"Jenny-Lynn has a plan. She thinks if we were to form a long line and use sticks to break the webs, we can easily bust free of the spider's trap and get away from here. BonBon has a lighter." He frowns, thinking to himself, she ought not to have it in the first place, taking note to lecture his daughter later. " We can use it to burn the webs off the trees and bushes, our sticks can tear them down from the path ahead of us." Seeing no other plan, everybirdie lines up, wing to wing forming a greyt line of feathers, and slowly they work their way forward, removing webs as they go. It seems a very long time before they reach the end of the spiders home, and bid them a quick good-bye. The Spiders glare angry eyes at the retreating birds. "Just wait, they think they are free from troubles...." The Spiders hiss and laugh as they return to their damaged webs. " they'll wish they were here again!"
Jesse stops for a moment to get his bearings. He sits on a tree that had fallen to the ground. HE asks SKY to find Apache so he can use the binoculars. Sky searches but returns with Kiddo in a panic, " Apache, Sweetpepper and Pearl are gone!"

  Hi Cori
We woke up to bright sunshine after a frigid night of temperatures of 36,the morning was cold as winter until the sun came up and warmed it up a little.We got as high as 54 degrees and no higher.Mom went out and took the hummingbird feeder off the hanger on the deck and emptied it out and cleaned it up and put it away for next spring.Then Mom worked on some of her chores around the house,cleaned our cages out good as she was too busy yesterday with the grill and then the clean up that goes with grilling.My dad cleaned out the grill and put that into the sun room til next spring so all the signs of summer are gone.We are in for a week of rain again starting with tomorrow and going right through Friday with Wednesday being the worst with all the heaviest downpours coming then,of course when Mom has to go out so she can get soaked!We will be no higher in temperatures than the mid fifties and hopefully we won't be getting anymore 30 degree nights!Skin bro came over to visit this morning with Mom and he's excited to possibly be getting a job with Macombers a trash and septic company in the Mills here.They will call him on Thursday or Friday to see what he can do,he's worked for several trash companies before so he has skills in this area.Mom put Dixie back on his antibiotics and eye drops as he was in too much pain all weekend to stand for the oral dose from the syringe.He's not too happy about that but that's what the vet wanted.
That butterfly weed really sounds interesting and my dad might like that to grow in our area where there's really no weeds or grass in the far part of the front yard.It would be nice to see all kinds of butterflies coming into the yard!You're right about a month from now we will consider this weather warm to whats in store for us then!Mom can't stand the cold now,I'd hate to see her trying to deal with next month's temperatures!LOL!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses! Loving you always and forever my sweet Cori,Love Kallie

  Hi Cori
Your mom and my mom feel the same way about fracking, although we are fortunate enough not to have any happening near us. Mom has sent all sorts of petitions about fracking in CA to the state and congress, and she received a notice about it in the mail last week. It's on our ballot in November. Sure hope the vote goes the right way.

Well, today's the big day! Mom gets to eat real food, and she started our day out with a bowl (very small bowl) of cereal with banana (a very small banana) which I of course shared with her. As usual I preferred the cereal she had in her mouth to what was in the bowl, but that's par for the course.

Then she left about 9:30 for the gym, and her trainer did abs and core work for the first time in 8 weeks. Unfortunately for Mom the entire 50 minutes was abs and core. Think she'll be sore? Then she ate half a protein bar (trainer said to take it slow on solids this first day) before zumba, which she managed 50 minutes of. She was going to try for the entire class, but that last song was a super fast one and she caved.

Then she came home and instead of coming in to be with me, she took a shower and then took a phone call from her friend who has a court date coming (she's up for disability) and they talked for over half an hour. So by the time my mom came in to see me I was in a rage and bit her hand and her ear, so I got a time out. She did an Ensure for her lunch (big fried chicken dinner coming home with Dad after all) and after a bit she came back in and I was very sorry, so we went out for a sunbath. It's a pleasant low 70s today.

Now I am back in my room, because when she tried the knee sitting blog routine, I went for the antique dresser instead. I swear the hormones made me do it! Not my fault!

  Hi Cori
You'll love this--there are some fracking companies that are dumping that toxic water on dirt roads to 'keep the dust down!'
Yesterday, mom led 2 anthropology tours at the museum. Both were with college students from West Virginia University. Mom's first question to both groups was how many were hung over? WVU won their football game on Saturday, so there was some celebrating going on. She had fun with the college students, and both groups covered 3 desert cultures, Ancient Egypt, Inuits in Northern Canada from about 100 years ago, and modern Hopi Native Americans. The second group was more engaged, and seemed to have a better time with it. At the end of the second tour, they asked if mom had been a teacher, so she said yes. They hoped it wasn't at Pitt, to which mom replied that's where she got her Masters. One of the girls said she'd forgive mom for that, because everyone is entitled to a mistake now and again. Mom just laughed and laughed over that.
Today at the center, mom cleaned the RVS room and the squirrel porch. It was funny on the squirrel porch, there were 3 fox squirrels, including the one she fostered, 6 red squirrels, and about a dozen gray ones. The gray ones were in and out of each other's cages, having a ball. Mom couldn't get an accurate count! Hopefully they were all there.
I hope you are having a wonderful day, full of sunshine, love, and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

My dad's puter is so messed up! He took in in twice and it only works for a couple weeks and then, he can't get on most of his sites. I say, he needs to take it to another place!!! Or, he needs to get a new one.

Today was spent just hanging out with my parronts and chewing up new toys. It's still dark, gloomy and cold here. Dad put the patio furniture away when mom was at Parrot Palooza. That's a sign of winter for us!

Glad your moms computer is back up and running good again!
Mom said it was too cold this morning to go out so she did a few things around here instead. Then she decided to get the grands albums caught up to date again like she does every winter. She didn’t have the three grands new school pictures yet to add or the oldest grands birthday picture so she just put what she had in the albums for now. She does have the oldest grands in line to order but will probably wait to order them since there will be the youngest grands birthday soon plus Christmas too so will just wait. I think she is going to start birthday cards soon cause mom likes doing that more. “The bond that links your true family is not of blood, but of respect and joy in each others life like bird channel is for all of us“ Leaving a vote with the note and a big hug as well…Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Hi everybirdie Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure POST. I want to take a moment to thank you all for your continuous daily votes, and awesome blogs. I am trying to use them in my story line so keep them comin.' IF anybirdie still needs a Halloween picture please let me know your choice of costume and I will see what I can do to help you out.
"AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" Sky screams shrilly and he a Jake back up quickly from the mound of parted grass. "What was that thing???"
"I have no idea but I'm outta here" Jake heads back to rejoin BB and the others, with Sky following on his heels.
Sky shivers, and ducks behind BB. Peaking out to stare towards the grass with dilated eyes. "EEEEEKuck." Sky did not get the words out before birdies began to scream and jump as fast as they could to join Jake and Sky behind BB and BonBon who had come to see what was wrong with her Poppa Sky.
"S-P-I-D-E-R-S!" from every direction big, ucky, black, beady eyed spiders crawl, hang and appear out of every tree, bush and from behind every blade of grass. The girl birds huddle close together as the spiders spin their webs angrily from every solid object. Sky nervously sneaks a peak again from behind BB, closing his eyes. He hates spiders, well no, Sky is afraid of them, and these are BIG, black ucky ones with a quadrillion legs. He shutters, then takes a brave breath of air.
"BOYS, we must protect the ladies" Sky announces not too confidently.
"Yeah, that's right" Cookie says, hanging tightly onto BB's leg once more. " we'll protect you girls"
"Oh really, they're just Spiders" BooBoo says snatching one in her beak and swallowing it whole, "YUMMMMMIE"
The others look at BooBoo and make faces, "how disgusting BooBoo, eating it without BBQing it first" BonBon chirps up. " AHHHHHHH, ones chasing me" she says taking flight. She lands on her Poppa Sky's head. "I'll sit up here and keep watch on them for you" she grins down at her red feathered Poppa.
The spiders continue to emerge, spinning thick webs everywhere. Their black eyes glaring like fiery flames of anger. The birds huddle closely as the Spiders move closer and closer. Suddenly Jesse sees what looks like an opening, and yells, " Follow me" he runs as fast as his talons will carry him between two Mulberry bushes with the others closely upon his heels. The duck low to avoid the heavy webs hanging from the old dark trees, and weave to the left and right around the huge black spiders who appear to block their path of escape. Jesse rushes forward, jumping over an old fallen log, and lands inches from a monstrous Spider, who growls and snaps his feet at the pasting birdies.
"EEEEEEEEEEEE" the scream brings the fleeing birds to a halt, "LITTLE ANGEL, the Spiders grabbed her into their web, HELP HER!!!!!

  Hello Cori~
I hope you are all having a great afternoon! I'm having a nice afternoon even thought my Seahawks did not do so well! I still love them!
Mom is going to go pick Ian up soon and then we will head off to the bedroom so she can get some sleep! She is now half way through her 8 day stretch!YAY!
Mom heard on the radio this morning that there was another town that got e-coli in their water. This one is in our county but not close to us. mom is glad she decided to put us all on bottled water since they can't seem to find out where it came from. They never did find out up on Mercer Island and it happened up there twice!
Mom has had the same problem with the internet and never did figure out what was going on. I hope it stays on for your mom!!
Enjoy the rest of your day and I hope it's just perfect!
love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Cori
It is very nice here today. They were calling for 77, but I don't think it got quite that warm. Our thermometer says 72, and it's 1PM now. I did get out for my sunbath though, and it was very nice in the sunshine. Got two nutriberries as well, which is always good.

And so now I sit on Mom's knee dictating my blogs. She has the door shut, since Dad is home. And besides I have a made a break from my room twice today for the bathroom. I love hanging out on top of the medicine cabinets in there. And besides it annoys Mom, which is always fun.

We had mac and cheese for lunch today. Mom added some Cajun spice, cottage cheese (for protein) and a bit of Romano cheese to kick it up a notch. It must have worked, because she really liked it and I ate like a little pig. Good thing she gets to eat meat starting tomorrow, because this morning when she woke me up and I was doing my morning stretch, she referred to my legs as drumsticks! Yikes!

  Hi Cori
It sounds like you had a ghost in the machine! Glad it's back though.
The opera gala last night was wonderful, too bad it couldn't have lasted longer. Mom did hear lots of arias, duets, and ensembles that she loves, and they did a bit of operetta as well.
Mom's tour with college students turned out to be fun yesterday, and they wanted Dinosaur hall, which she loves. Today mom has 2 tours at the museum with West Virginia University students. Do you think she's trying to avoid the football game? I sure do. She got very upset with the team's loss last week, even though she didn't see the game.
I hope you are having a good day, lots of sun and warmer temps than we have here. Get lots of scritchies and cuddles today. Hugs, Falco

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

  Dear Cori & Boo Boo, from Jenny
...if there is one thing we have learned from computers, even the iMac,is that they can be fickle! When dad has a problem,he call aunt Denise, she is a wizard, dad calls hera witch,and she usually says try this or that,and if all else fails, shut down and restart, she is always spot on! Our bird club meeting went well and we got several new members, these are all wonderful people, that anybody would be proud to call friends! Our new Vet was delayed due to a prior commitment, and had to cancel at the last minute, but we all had a wonderful time, even Ziggy was a good boy! He loves women, and there were a lot of them there chatting with him! There is a definite chill in the Fall air as we relax to football and birdie time, have a great day , and give my love to all in your sweet home, see ya tomorrow...

Love from Jenny, and my Sunday loving family

Of course we're running late. HE slept in until 6:30, and now has to rush to get done, so I can send them off to the ORLANDO bird show. RT

  Hi Cori
I wonder if they will come up with a shot to take. Mom already had to have the flu (yearly), pneumonia, and shingles. I think it's cause she's old!!!
Hey, tell your mom to come next time we have a bird mom get together.
Does any bird have some sunshine they can share? We are in the hot chocolate season for sure!
Hugs
Chyna

Come visit me, Chyna & Bailey ♥ RIP.

  Hi Cori and Boo boo
Thanks for the ebola facts! Interesting indeed.
This morning mom and her cousin met up at a church that was having a craft show. I told mom she has enough crafts to get done here but she said she had gallon plastic jugs my water comes in for some lady there. The lady makes skeletons for Halloween out of them so mom said she will save them for her. I suspect mom looked at all the crafts there too though. Oh well she didn’t stay long and was back home the rest of the day with me so that was good. “The bond that links your true family is not of blood, but of respect and joy in each others life like bird channel is for all of us“ Leaving a vote with the note and a big hug as well…Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Cori
Okay I think Mom gets it now,she's going to start saving all those laundry detergent bottles now and see if she can get some from everyone else she knows too,Jeez!She could've had a yard full of those laundry detergent bottles already had she not thrown them all out!That is a wonderful idea and Mom can't wait to get one of them started at least to keep those poor birds from freezing in the snow and cold!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses for my sweet Cori,Loving you always and forever,Kallie

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

  October BOTM POST number twelve
Hello friends, Jesse here with our Saturday BOTM Adventure Post. As we turned for a final look at BC Lake, the water is once more calm, glass-like and no sign of the past violent storm remains. Even the row-boats have disappeared. "WHAT! The row-boats, their gone!" Kacey exclaims loudly as she stares in disbelief. For indeed the boats had vanished into thin air.
BB looks at Sky and Jesse, then back at the Lake, "I hope we can find the BC Castle. It is funny that it has disappeared on us. I know it is a magical place but why would it vanish on the birds who love it sooooo much???" Then looking down towards the ground she says with a sigh, "Can somebirde please remove Cookie from around my legs? Its hard to waddle this way."
" SURE HOPE WE FIND OUR WAY BACK TO THE CASTLE THEN FIND OUR FRIENDS. THIS IS ONE SCAREY TRIP.' Sweetpepper tells Kiddo with worry in her voice. Kiddo takes her wing in his, and holds her tightly. "We'll get out of here, don't you worry Sweetpepper."
Spot comes to where Sky, BB and Jesse are standing, trying to decide what to do next. Jake walks towards the group, but suddenly stops dead in his tracks. "What was that?" he asks pointing to where he had thought he saw something peaking out of the grass at him. Seeing nothing he joins the others.
Bonbon looks and sees that her picture with Parker is in the photo album Hesse has on his gallery. turning to spot and Parker she says, "Jesse put me and Parker in the profile!Hehee!!! I can't wait to show Snowflake........ Oh no! I forgot that she disappeared!" BonBon starts to cry loudly because she misses her friend!
Spot hugs her and says, "don't worry BonBon. We'll find her and all the others too!"(He sounds more confidant than he feels, but he won't let BonBon see that!)
"Hey, Panther! I have an idea! We're tiels, and fly well! let's go up as high as we can and look for them!"
"Good idea, Spot," says Panther.
Jesse says, "you guys be careful! And keep up in sight range, OK?"
"OK, let's go Panther!" Spot lifts into the air
They fly straight up and fly in a big circle looking for their friends. Finally, they land and report to Jesse. "We didn't see them, we also didn't see the castle in any direction! I think we're lost!"
Worry lines form on Jesse's handsome face again, and he says, "it must be a trick of some kind by the BC ghosts! The Castle has to be there. It's always easy to find from the Lake."
Jake and Sky stand close, talking. "I am certain I saw tiny black eyes staring at me from over there, then they disappeared." Sky looks in the direction Jake indicated. Seeing nothing he frowns. " We better go check it out, just to be sure." The two boys inch closer to where the eyes had been. Parting the grass carefully using a stick Sky found on the ground they lean over for a better looks and suddenly the air is split in two by their terrified screams........
