ATTENTION: 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

Your poor Mom having this misunderstanding with your daddy.Why would he think that your sweet Momma has his email in her computer?That must be so frustrating for your poor Mom to have to deal with all of the computer problems on top of her not feeling well and having that bad backache.
Its already started to snow here and has been snowing since before noon time.My dad is gone and we probably won't be seeing him again til after Wednesday when this storm is over.Then we will be getting another storm on the weekend again.We will be buried in snow and won't be able to leave the house.

  Hi BooBoo
So glad to hear your mommy's healing progress is going along. We all have her in our prayers.

My daddy bought my mommy a Samsung 40 inch smart TV that is smarter than her heehee !!!
He got it for her before she had her surgery so she could relax in bed and do her blogs with the remote.
She still hasn't figured it out !!!

Today we are expecting lots of rain. It looks like it's about to rain any minute now.
We need as much as we can get. This weekend there was lot's of fires due to high Santa Ana winds. Rain is the answer.

I smell baked apples in the oven. My mommy always makes them on cold rainy days.
It warms up the house and smells soo good !!!
I can't wait to sink my beak into them.
I have a trick question for you. What color is a mirror ???
Inquiring Tiel minds would like to know.

Stay warm and cozy
Love your buddy

Maybe if the tech person explains it to dad, he will believe and understand it. Mom was trying to update information the other day with Wells Fargo online, and the site it took her to had 'Asian beauties' pop up, then they wanted money to answer her question, so she got off there and called Wells Fargo instead. She felt safer doing it by phone since all that goofy stuff popped up on her computer. Hope you are having a good day. Hugs, Willie

It's Alex.
Glad your mom's back is getting better. We misses you.
Mom's mom came over yesterday and watched two shows. Dad sat down after feeding all of us and watched the second one with them. It was a show about people who want to start up their own restaurant. It's just like "Shark Tank" except with restaurants. After mom's mom left, our mom and dad spent the rest of the day watching shows that mom recorded on the DVRs. Dad's head was still stuffed up so he just rested. For dinner dad grilled some Yellow fin fish with rice and fresh veggies.
Today there is a 60% chance of rain, with a high of 75 and a low of 53. Sounds like another resting day.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Alex.

Glad to hear your moms back is feeling better! Back pain is just awful!
We remember when your mom got her TV. Thats terrible that the picture looked so bad. Glad she could figure out how to fix it!
The tech should explain to your dad about his email and password and emails. That should clear it up for him.
Hope you have a nice day!

  Hi, Boo Boo
Haven't seen the Squawkatiels so hope they've skedaddled. We thank you for your persistence in flying in to visit us.

Glad to hear your mom is feeling better and able to stand and walk. Know they make chairs that tilt one up to get out but haven't heard of any beds that offer ease of getting in and out.

Gosh, a new TV that has pic issues? Glad your mom is getting it working. Something in the settings must not have been correct.

Hmmm, sounds like a tech just needs to eggsplain to your dad that he can just change his email password and then only he will be able to read 'em. All that stuff is accessible wherever he can log in. Hope he figures that out.

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

  Monday kinda day...Flitzer
Happy Monday, friends.
Sunday was a cold icy day in Buffalo. Dad had to go in and out a few times – he did manage not to fall, but it was treacherous walking and driving.
--
Dad thoroughly cleaned my cage Sunday afternoon. On the advice of a few good bird-expert friends, he removed my 'Happy Hut' for a time. I really love my hut for sleepy-time. They told him it would help in this time of trying to re-bond with him. This will probably be quite temporary.
I was good with Dad on Sunday - and we enjoyed some good time together. In the evening I flew around the apartment with my loud happy squawk.
--
I nipped Dad instead of stepping-up this morning. He has walked away –says he’ll come back when I want to behave. ~~Sigh~~
Hope we all have a great week. ~Wings Up~

  BOO BOO ? Can I come to your house ?
What a day we've had here yesterday ! Around 2:00 mom's sister called that the house next to hers was on fire - mom just ran out the door to be with her sister and nieces ! ! ! FAST ! Her sister is about a half hour away - and indeed the next door house was on fire - big time. Mom's sister's house was evacuated because of its proximity, and they were cutting power to that side of the street. So the whole family was out in the road watching and praying that their house would be safe. 5 hours later they found out it was, although there was a lot of radiant heat damage - like all the vinyl siding melted off the house, including the electric meter - all the windows on that side of the house were broken and the blinds inside melted . . . mom spent most of the afternoon there and just left when the excavator arrived to take down the little that was left of the next door neighbors' home - around 7:00. The electrician showed up (ever try to find a licensed electrician at dinner time on a Sunday ?) to check the house out and once they got the AOK from him, NYSGE put a new meter on and turned their power back on . . . around 11:30 last night.

Now, here's WHY mom left her sister standing in the cold on the road with 3 dogs (nieces by that time had gone to a neighbors) . . . g'pa couldn't breathe and he was being taken to the hospital ! ! Mom couldn't decide whether to head home to me or up to the hospital . . . she came home and daddy went with his mom to the hospital - g'pa is OK - bronchitis at 86 just isn't good ! Daddy called around midnight to tell mom he was staying there tonight to take g'pa to his cardiologist this morning before the snow . . .

Blizzard Warning starting at 1pm with strong winds and LOTS of snow - can you say YIKES ! If you watch weatherchannel, we're right on the 18-24in line and the 2ft+ ! ! Last night they announced early dismissal today - it'll be surprising if they're in much before Thursday . . . I just hope the power stays on ! Hope you have a good day - Give everyone my love - Cookie

  Hi Boo Boo and Cori
Hello everybirdie. Amando here with today's Adventure update. After a frightful emergency with my fister Sweetie and her Pet Store toy, we are back on our trip to return Armando to his Momma and flock. With the Hippos awake things got pretty nasty for poor Cappy and his boat load of Amazon Adventurers. Hippos are not native to South America but were relocated here by someone then left to fend on their own when their owner was killed by authorities. The warmth, abundant water and plant life are perfect habitat for the displaced African natives. A large male awoke by the passing boat lets out a loud roar of annoyance that rouses the others from their afternoon rest. He runs forward, his strong legs moving easily across the river bottom. The others in his pod follow, heading towards the longboat.
Cappy sees the angry hippo coming and let's out a huge Cockatoo SCREAM, crest up, feathers fluffed. The male Hippo comes to a screeching stop and stares in wonder at the large white bird standing on the helm of the longboat. The others stop behind him, not certain what to do. The leader roars again and steps forward. Cappy screams again, this time he is joined by the other BC friends. The sound is deafening as it echos across the water. The Hippos having never seen or heard a Cockatoo before stare for a moment longer then turn on their heels and head back towards the distant shoreline. Cappy screams once more for a final warning, before smiling happily at his friends in the boat. "You just don't mess with a TOO!" he says, grabbing his oar. "OK, let's paddle out of here."
The other boats pass by undisturbed as the hippos keep a nervous watch from the banks. The group sails past Manaus, before BB calls to them to head for shore for lunch. Dixie and Little Angel were so comforted to be in the boat with Cappy as their guard,he sure did scare those hippos fast! They wouldn't want to mess around with that strong big beak.
BB opens her travel bag & gets out the portable kitchen. Out of the storage bins she gets corn on the cob, veggie Kabobs,Soy burgers and Spam hot dogs. Little Bits Best root beer is in the coolers along with Cream & Ginger Ale sodas.
"I am going to call in the supply shuttle for more food. Any birdie have a request for food??" she asks looking at Sky, " yes Pickles, I won't forget. Sky could you and Jesse go bring some water from the river please?"
Sky grabs two buckets as he and Jesse wander back down to the River where the others are playing a game of beach volleyball. Bending over, sky dips the bucket into the river and suddenly the water begins to turn and bubble. Startled Sky yanks the bucket out. "WHAT ???" he yells looking at it. The whole bottom was gone, eaten away. "Stay out of the water, Piranhas!"
Everybirdie stops dead and stares at the bucket, and the River.
"So many dangers to be wary of" Kaji sighs

We had a sudden, unexpected ice storm late Saturday afternoon. Freezing-Drizzle mixed with snow coating everything - making an icy world. Dad changed his evening plans to stay inside.
We had popcorn!

Dad has to go out a lot today - but sadly, instead of temperatures going up to melt the ice, the temps have fallen to keep everything slippery n nasty. Hope he doesn't fall.

  Hi Booboo
Oh no, being mean to mom when she's in pain is not right! Poor mom! I hope she forgave you, but I'm sure she did.
Mom heard from Aunt Jane via email last night. They are having lots of 80 degree days, and getting sun. Chyna has made friends with an egret who hangs by the pool at the house they're renting.
It snowed here overnight, so mom shoveled the driveway and front walk. She wouldn't have done it so soon, but she had to work at the museum today. (It's supposed to snow again later and overnight.) It's FROZEN day at the museum, as well as another Ask the Scientist day, so mom was anticipating the place crawling with Olafs, Svens, Anyas, and Elsas, as well as cavorting reindeer, etc. The place wasn't as crowded as mom thought it would be, probably because of the weather. The scientists set up on the first floor, and mom was on the third, with a Polar World cart and artifacts from the frozen north. On the way home she needed to stop for more broccoli and grapes, so poor picky Falco doesn't starve. We have lots of fruits and veggies, but she's a very picky eater! Hope you are having a great day filled with cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

  Hi Boo boo.
It's Alex.
Mom went back to the police station and was actually able to get some work done. While mom was working dad checked around for the best deal on Measles shots. The way they are spreading around here it's better to be safe. Sam's Club has the best price. Dad also filled up the car with gas, at $2.17 per gallon. That's the cheapest he's seen it in many years.
Today will be clear, with a high of 78 and a low of 54. Mom and dad are going to mom's brother's house for a birthday party.
Our dad would like to join your mom on that island where there's no pain and no yelling. That would be nice.
Hope your day is fun.

Alex.

  Hi Boo Boo and Cori
Hello Adventurers. As we draw close to Manuas, Brazil, we must be watchful for both human threats and the ever present threat from wildlife both on land and aquatic. Although the Hippo is an African animal, there are now over 50 individuals and counting living happily along the Amazon and other South American Rivers. In the late 1980s, Pablo Escobar kept four hippos in a private menagerie at his residence in Hacienda Nápoles, 100 km east of Medellín, Colombia, after buying them in New Orleans. They were deemed too difficult to seize and move after Escobar's fall, and hence left on the untended estate. By 2007, the animals had multiplied to 16 and had taken to roaming the area for food in the nearby Magdalena River. In 2009, two adults and one calf escaped the herd and, after attacking humans and killing cattle, one of the adults (called "Pepe") was killed by hunters under authorization of the local authorities. As of early 2014, 50 hippos have been reported to exist on the Amazon and it's tributaries.
With Mick Dundee departure after enjoying BB's lunch, the birds begin to wonder how they would get past the Hippos ahead in the River. Amando, Jenny-Lynn and Sky sit close, deep in discussion trying to figure out the safest way past the upcoming danger.
"I think we simply paddle by, staying as far away from them as we can. If we take one boat past at a time it shouldn't disturb them overly" Jenny-Lynn adds, worry on her face
"But if they do attack the boat and it is alone we might not be able to get there in time to help them." Sky adds
"I think we stay close together." Amando replies after some thought, " we paddle as little as we have to, let the river move us by"
"It might be best if we separate and place guards in each boat while passing the hippo pod." Jenny-Lynn directs
Sky and Amando agree, and set about moving guard birds into each boat. The nervous Adventures load their boats, and pushing off from shore, slowly paddle towards possible danger lurking the the River ahead. Finny and Chipper had reported back that the hippos were resting near the west bank of the river in shallow water. The birds move their boats towards the eastern shore, paddling carefully, ever watchful for danger. Rounding a sharp curve in the River near Manuas, JL in the lead boat with Sugar, Cookie, Raffi, Peepers, Laka, Strawberry and RT spots the first group of hippos. Resting submerged below the murky Amazon waters, just their heads exposed. Pointing she let's out a shrill whistle to inform the others that danger was ahead of them. JL directs her companions to stop paddling, and allows the boat to move slowly along pulled by the current of the water. Sky and Kaji's boats pass by the hippos without incident. Next boat to pass is LA and Dixie's group, guarded by Cappy. As Cappy instructs his friends to stop paddling, one huge male Hippo opens his mouth and lets out an angry roar. His sudden call rouses the others in the pod.

Today was the first day in a long time I "stepped-up" on Daddy's hand and went to the proper place to poop. Daddy is thrilled. I hope this means the end of my moodies for a long while.
A busy weekend ahead. Sending all our love. Flitzer and Dad. ~Wings Up~

Come visit me, Flitzer.

  Hi Boo Boo and Cori
Hello fellow Amazon Adventurers. I was sure glad to see that Ms BB had welcomed her pal to join us for a part of our trip up the River. She musta known we were going to run into some nasty company along the way. Nothing worse then Crocs or gators for rocking the boat so to speak. Thankfully we had warning from Finny and the Green Angels. With BB's shuttle always on the ready she was able to have her friend Mick from Australia join us . He has a nickname of Crocodile Dundee. Mick stepped up on the bow of the long boat so the crocs could see him better. When they did they all headed for the bottom of the river & stayed there. They didn't want to be made into boots,belts,hats or luggage!!! I sorta feel sorry for them after Cappy and Little Angel got done with them.
"OK, enough with the green gator guys, Ok Crocs. Let me at' em. I'll show them a thing or five. I'll bite their noses, sparkle their tails and then......"Li
"il Angel yells at the crocs as they swim around the boats. "Oh you don't wanta wake the baby.
Too late....LOOK OUT CROC HERE I COMEEEEEEEEEEE." Little Angel grabs an oar and whacks the croc on the nose hard making tears come to his eyes.
Little Angel" Sky yells, "Stop hurting the Crocs, you're making them cry. OH no not that." He watches as she grabs one by the tail and bites down as hard as she can, "and trust me that's hard."
"Little Angel, I thought I told you be good?" Amando looks at her and can't help but grin as he watches the neon sparkled crocs swimming away in shame, that a little girl bird beat them up.
Everybirdie laughs as the crocs disappear. Then little Angel turns to see Mick standing on Ms BB's boat. She grins sheepishly and giggles. "Way ta go mate" Mick calls to her making LA happy.
"Whew! That was a close one! Thankfully, LA, Cappy and Ms. BB took care of those nasty crocs! Good grief! What will we encounter next?? Oh, oh....my Green Angels just informed me that there are some hippos up the river. Just what we need! Do be careful. Hippos are even more dangerous than crocs. We have to find baby Armando's Momma and get him home before anything else happens. I'm off to check on the hippo situation and really search for Armando's Momma. " Finny waves his good-bye as he heads off up-river to re-join the Green Angels as they gather information about the hippos.
Heading into shore, tie off their boats and relax. Its lunch time so Ms BB sets up her portable kitchen." How about deep fried gator bites, corn dogs and deep fried pickles?
I have been told by Mr Mick Dundee the gator bites taste like chicken. " Picabo makes a face at the thought of Gator bites. Boo Boo yells, " Bring'em on!"
"Then we can sneak past those Hippos and continue our hunt for the baby"s Mom & Dad."
As BB and the girls cook lunch, the boys bring out some maps and check for possible nesting sites ahead. As they look over the map Willie points to a treed area, "LOOK! A nesting area of Amazon species"

  Hi, Boo Boo
It is hard for your mom not to feel a tad guilty when she's hurt and sick and the flock's normal routine of being out and about is curtailed. Think the budgies have each other and will just have to get over it. Glad you were so good and didn't give any fuss about being put to birdie bedtime eggspecially since you ensured your treasures are safe.

Don't worry about blogging if your mom isn't up to it as we shall continue to keep our wings crossed for her.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Happy Thursday from Flitzer
Happy Thursday, BooBoo. hope you and your Mom are feeling well today.

Running late today as Dad had an extended work-out at the gym
["Flitzer-Lifting" isn't enough exercise, I guess, as I only weigh 80 grams].
--
Yesterday Dad and his best friend went to see "American Sniper". Dad doesn't take me to the theater but tells me all about it.
I really wanna go sometime, cause I *love* popcorn.

  Cookie is relieved that aunt Carol
is starting to feel human again and that all of BOO BOO's treasures are still well hidden :)

He's never tried to pepper pellets . . . might be something to try cause his mom gets the regular ones at the vets office too . . .

Come visit me, Cookie - staying warm, BC Library Now Open & Fly with the angels my Sally.

  Hi BooBoo
my sweet precious little Blue Girl!Please don't worry about me right now,we are all so worried about your poor sweet Momma with that bad intestinal virus and her poor back in so much pain with all those sore muscles.You are so right when you say we have our bad days and our good days and Mom is going to make sure that my grams get back on me,she is worried because I won't eat my pellets now and I always ate them before.She tried getting me a different kind today when she went out but they only had Lafeber's and they were too big for my beak to handle.She's going to try and crush the ones I have and make them smaller and maybe I'll be interested in them then.My Mom and I agree with your sweet Momma that you are so much safer in your cage than being allowed out so that nothing can hurt you or you will get into trouble while your sweet Momma is still unsteady and not feeling well enough to keep her eye on you.I feel the same way you do because my Mom keeps me in my cage all day long as I can't fly and will keep jumping off the playgym onto the hardwood floors and break my keelbone.Please know how much both Mom and I love you and your sweet Momma so much and feel so bad that we can't be there to help you both and make things easier for you both.Give your wonderful Momma a warm hug from my Mom and I send her some warm wing hugs to help make her feel better.
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 Little Blue Girl!Loving you always and forever,Dixie
