  Hi Chico
Hi everybirdie, Zeena here with Monday's BOTM POST. Today we visit a beautiful song bird making a new comeback in homes around the globe. The Pekin Rokin, a song bird of extraordinary talent. I wish to thank all my many friends for their votes and stopping to leave comments on my page. I read them all.
The Red-billed Leiothrix or PEKIN ROBIN (Leiothrix lutea) is usually found in India, Bhutan, Nepal, Burma and parts of Tibet. This species is a bird of the hill forests, found in every type of jungle though it prefers pine forests with bushes. It has also been found at elevations ranging from near sea level to about 7,500 feet.

The species was introduced to the Hawaiian Islands in 1918 and spread to all the forested islands except Lanai. Its population on Oahu crashed in the 1960s and it disappeared from Kauai, but is now common and increasing on Oahu The leiothrix was released in Western Australia but it failed to become established. This species was also introduced in Great Britain but permanent establishment was unsuccessful. It was introduced to France, where it is now established in several areas.
Adults have bright red bills and a dull yellow ring around their eyes. Their backs are dull olive green, and they have a bright yellow-orange throat with a yellow chin; females are somewhat duller than males, and juveniles have black bills. It has also been introduced in various parts of the world, with small populations of escapees having existed in Japan since the 1980s. It has become a common cagebird and amongst aviculturists it goes by various names: Pekin Robin, Pekin Nightingale, Japanese Nightingale, and Japanese (Hill) Robin, the last two being misnomers as it is not native to Japan.
Pekin Robins don't fly frequently, except in open habitats. This bird is very active and an excellent singer but very secretive and difficult to see. It makes a wonderful addition to a mixed aviary with good cover provided. Housing one pair per flight.
The standard fare for Pekin Robins in captivity comprises a mix of dried insect food, fresh fruits and mealworms. they especially like fruitflies and live crickets especially in the breeding season.
Pekin Robins are difficult to find for sale but well worth the expenditure and effort to find them.

  Hi Chico
Hello everyone, Zeena here with today's BOTM POST. Today we head to the warm tropical Island Luzon, Philippines and visit an unusual and exotic species of Dove. The Luzon Bleeding-Heart. The Luzon Bleeding-heart (Gallicolumba luzonica) is one of a number of species of ground dove in the genus Gallicolumba that are called "bleeding-hearts". They get this name from a splash of vivid red colour at the centre of their white breasts. The Luzon Bleeding-heart is the species in which this feature is most pronounced, and on first sight it is hard to believe that the bird has not recently been wounded. A reddish hue that extends down the belly furthers the illusion of blood having run down the bird's front. The Luzon Bleeding-heart was featured on a Philippine 2-peso postage stamp in 1994.


The Luzon bleeding-heart is classified as Near Threatened (NT) on the IUCN Red List and is listed on Appendix II of CITES., since it is commonly trapped. Local people use it for meat, but its striking appearance means that there is also a market for it in the pet trade. A captive breeding project has been started in Australia, and the Philippines. Habitat conservation is a priority but it will also be necessary to bring some of the three other species of bleeding heart doves (Negros, Sulu and Mindoro) into captivity, to prevent their extinction. Recently the first captive population of Negros bleeding heart doves has been established in the Philippines.

Only two of the five species of bleeding heart doves are held in captivity in Europe at present: the Luzon and the Mindanao. The European breeding programs for these species are coordinated by Bristol Zoo Gardens. They are being managed to provide a self-sustaining captive population and to develop important care and breeding techniques for use in the Philippines.

Identifying the areas where Luzon bleeding heart doves are found and the numbers that are left is the next step needed to secure this species in the wild. Once sites have been selected with the local community, the area will be protected to ensure the survival of the species in that area.

The areas where the bleeding heart dove lives also contain many other birds unique to these islands, all of which have been threatened by deforestation. In addition, some are threatened by hunting and illegal collection for the pet trade. By highlighting the plight of the bleeding heart dove, conservationists work to save the habitat for all the species in the area.

Although extremely rare in Aviculture 2 pairs were found for sale at $5000.US per pair.

  Hi Chico
Happy Sunday to all my BC friends. Zeena here with a look at a species of bird, well reputed as THE best talker and mimicker. Once abundantly available at low prices, today an often difficult to find and much costly addition to ones Flockily. Momma Deb says as a child she recalls seeing a number of these interesting, entertaining birds kept in Pet Stores, and businesses. She has been searching for one for over ten years and only encounter one at a very costly price.
The Mynah, the loved and disliked Clown of the avian world.
The Common Myna (Acridotheres tristis), sometimes spelled Mynah, also sometimes known as "Indian Myna", is a member of the family Sturnidae (starlings and mynas) native to Asia. An omnivorous open woodland bird with a strong territorial instinct, the Myna has adapted extremely well to urban environments.The Common Myna is an important motif in Indian culture and appears both in Sanskrit and Prakrit literature. "Myna" is derived from the Hindi language maina which itself is derived from Sanskrit madana.

The range of the Common Myna is increasing at such a rapid rate that in 2000 the IUCN Species Survival Commission declared it one of the world's most invasive species and one of only three birds in the top 100 species that pose an impact to biodiversity, agriculture and human interests. In particular, the species poses a serious threat to the ecosystems of Australia where it was named "The Most Important Pest/Problem".

Mynahs are a lively, confident, aggressive, and noisy bird. It is friendly and perky, and the large flocks that gather at roosting time are usually raucous and grouchy. As pets they have many redeeming qualities including an inmate ability to mimic sounds, whistles and human speech. Once quite common in the pet trade, they now are difficult to locate. The Greater and Lesser Hill Mynahs are most thought of when imaging a Mynah Bird. Their clownish, outgoing personalities winning many a fan in years past.

Mynah's eat a mixture of specially formulated insect mash and fresh foods. Like the Lories, they have watery, odorous droppings, making them difficult to maintain in a home environment. those who endure the mess speak lovingly of their companions who seem to adore children, and adults alike. Daily cage washing, bathing and out of cage time are mandatory for good health. Momma Deb recalls that in her childhood most Mynah's were caged in small cramped cages,eating a diet of sunflower seeds and fruit. Thus living a miserable, short life. As advances came, it was found that Mynah's must have a balanced, more natural diet, and lots of room to move around in their cages. Bonded pairs breed readily in captivity. Babies that are hand-reared average $1200 to 1500 each when available. Bali Mynah's are rare and available to collectors only.

I wish to thank all my friends here on C for their daily support, and words of encouragement.

  Hi Chico
Good afternoon my dear BC friends, Zeena here with today's BOTM blog. We will once more make a stop in South American to visit one of natures very interesting and unique inhabitants. Our host is one of aviculture's beautiful, and unusual songbirds. The Green Oropendola. The Green Oropendola is of exclusively Amazonian distribution.The Green Oropendola (Psarocolius viridis) is generally common in its wooded habitats that are found in the Amazon and Guianas of South America; specifically Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Peru, Suriname, and Venezuela. Largely pale green above, the posterior underparts and rump are chestnut, and the tail is largely yellow except for the central rectrices. The bill is green basally, becoming red towards the tip, and the skin around the eyes and lores is pink. Males and females are similar in plumage, but the latter sex is substantially smaller. Like most oropendolas, this species breeds in colonies, usually of five to ten pairs, and constructing a hanging ‘basket’ nest of woven plant fibers. The species’ displays are similar to those of the Crested Oropendola (Psarocolius decumanus).
Related common species include such song-birds as the Meadow Lark, Bobo-Link and Bullock's Oriole to name but a few.
The Green Oropendola eats a diet of fresh fruits, insects, mynah bird food and nectar in captivity. An active, high energy species these birds require a large, long flight to maintain them in good condition. Somewhat difficult to breed, these beautiful birds require an aviary suitable to house a number of mature pairs to have any success in nesting and rearing offspring. Hand reared babies of the Green Oropendola are occasionally available but do not tend to retain tameness once weaned. In the wild they typically nest in colonies similarly to Quaker Parrots, building their hanging basket-like nests in a common tree. Captive breeding is seeing an increase in successful clutches being raised to fledging and adulthood.
These are definitely not a species for the beginner avicultarist, and their pricy purchase costs in excess of $850.00US each leaves them to the more well off and experienced collectors. Their song is soft and melodious, a pleasure to listen to. Their call is often described as flute-like and low.
Tomorrow we will visit with a wonderful, entertaining species of bird, that once filled many living rooms, but today is rare both in captivity and their wild habitat.
I wish to thank all my many friends for their loving support on my quest to be August's BOTM. I couldn't make it without all of you.
love and scritches

  Hi Chico
Hello everybird, Zeena here with today's BOTM blog. First I wish all my US friends a happy and safe 4th of July Holiday. It is also the day that my little fister Little Angel will marry her beloved Dixie. Their wedding will take place on the BC Castle page number 239094. All are invited to join these two "love-birds" this evening at 6PM Eastern Time as they share their vows of love. The reception will follow on the same page. Today we will take a peek into a few nesting boxes around the world and see what we find. Come on, let's be very quiet, as we explore the many new Blue and Gold Macaw mutations .Color Mutations are considered "pure" birds. They occur in nature, although rarely and if they do, they often don't survive long, if the "new color" is too vibrant and they are easily visible by predators.

Color mutations in captivity are perpetuated by breeding like colored birds to like colored birds (of two birds that carry the color gene). The resultant offspring will often be the color that is desired. Hybrids are the crossing of two species, whereas mutations occur spontaneously.

Most of us know the Blue and Yellow Macaw. Many of us own one or more, however there are some really eggciting new mutations I'd like us to take a look at. We are most familiar with the typical blue and Gold. However there is a larger variant from Bolivia called the Bolivian Blue and Gold Macaw. The Bolivian variety is distinguished by its larger size and its coloring. On all these Macaws the colors are vibrant, but the Bolivian has more of a true blue rather than the teal blue seen in the average Blue and Gold. They all share the same wonderful personality and characteristics.

The Bolivian Blue and Gold Macaw is a variant originating only in Bolivia. It looks just like the typical Blue and Gold, however, it is much larger. A mutation of the Blue and Gold Macaw has also been reported where the yellow coloring is absent creating a blue and white bird. Although seldom seen or available there are many new mutations being bred. Many sell for over $50,0US each.
Momma Deb told me she would love to have one of each, they are so beautiful, I am certain you will have to agree.

King Pepper here, with a special message to all my loyal bird subjects. After being picked up and brought to the castle in a way I still do not fully recollect, I woke up realizing I am Bird of the Month, a King, and I surely could not have done this alone. I could only vote for myself once a day, but TiPaul usually beat me to that too. And so this message – I want to thank each and every one of you… Angel & Pepper, Baby, Bilou, Cheyenne, Chico, Chipper, Chloe, Chuey, Chyna, Cookie, Cori & Boo Boo, Dino, Dixie, Falco, Finnegan, Grendel, Gus, Hulk, Indiana Sam, Ipo, Jolie, Jetta, Kaji, Kahlua, Kiddo, Lalo & Ziggy, Little Angel & Sky, Mango (Sunshine’s flock), Mango(Green’s flock), Mango (Lola’s flock), Mayo, Mikey, Miranda & CuBird, Molly, Ms BB, Norman, Oz, Panther, Pearl & Silver, Picabo, Pico & Poco, Pimer, Poirot, Polly & Zippy, Pookie, Popeye, Raffi, RoofTop, Sam, SamIAm, Snowy, Spot, Squak, Sugar, SweetPepper & Kacey, Tooth and Sebastian & finches for coming by and voting for me, whether it was every day… with a blog, without a blog… once in a while. They all added up and I made it to the castle, actually to the BC castle and to Ms. BB’s castle and it is only the second evening and I have been having the time of my life. I thought I had fun training Mom. Heh heh heh – this is going to be more fun than I ever imagined in my entire life. I have had friends stop by to visit and congratulate me and I cannot begin to thank you all enough for that too. I just don’t know where to begin. With the Canada Day party celebration yesterday, I was pretty tired, and I asked my frother to introduce me to his special friend Lizzie, who I know to be the bestest cook ever. Now food is something this bird has a taste for. That table that is at the castle is something I would like to have at home, for days when each of our flock wants something different to eat and Mom finds that so totally wrong. It is the best thing I have come across so far, and I have only just begun my journey. I will do my best to post my diary on my page every couple of days, for those of you who want to know what I have been up to.

Come visit me, Leroy, Little Bit & Chloe - Thank you everybirdy!!, Gizmo - Thanks everybirdy for BOTD!, Max, Jasper - Thanks everybirdy for BOTD!, Micky - Thanks everybirdy for BOTD!, PEPPER-Thanks for BOTM!, TiPaul - Who was 8000??? Who will be vote 9000?, Floop and Porky at the County Fair, Marley - Thanx everybirdy 4 BOTD Carrot cake 4 all, Zak - Thank you everybirdy for BOTD! & Lee-Roial RIP - Thanks for remembering me..

Hello everybirdie. Zeena here with today's Rainforest findings. I wish to thank everyone for their awesome support and hope you will enjoy today's feature species.
The Harpy Eagle is a majestic shadow that silently soars above the Rainforest canopy. Once common, and plentiful, today they rest on the brink of extinction. Previously a common sight in Brazil, the Harpy Eagle has become as rare as seeing a unicorn would be. Hunted to near extinction for their feathers, sport and out of fear and concern for their livestock, these awesome giants of the Raptor world are rapidly disappearing. These birds terrify hapless animals that forage in the shifting sunlight of the high canopy. Harpy eagle is the largest and the most powerful raptor throughout America. They belong to the family of accipitridae. American harpy eagle typically inhabits lowland rainforests but are disappearing from much of its range due to habitat loss and it almost extirpated in Central America.
The Harpy Eagle weighs in at 20 to 27 pounds for a hen and 12 to 17 pounds for a male, standing between 40 and 60 inches in length, sporting 5 to 7 inch talons it is a formidable predator dining on a diet consisting largely of sloth and moneys, with other animals making up the balance. In flight the Harpy flies on strong 5 to 7 foot wide spans, silent and watchful for a meal below in the dense Rain Forest canopy.
With wide spread clear-cutting and man's guns, the Harpy Eagle is soon going to be gone from the wild habitat it once claimed. Nesting in tree top nests, the single chick remains with the parents for up to two years. Pairs mate for life thus making it harder to rebuild endangered populations. Many Harpy Eagles have be poached for the private collector market relentlessly, with current breeding programs being established to help stave off their total elimination. Used by Bird of Prey enthusiasts and trained to hunt on command. Many die from lack of proper diet, and education of would be owners. New Government regulations being in place it is hoped to make owning Harpy Eagles a more difficult objective. Would be owners now have to finish a Government regulated Raptors training program which entails sixteen to eighteen months apprenticeship training in care, training and husbandry.
Tomorrow we will take a closer look at a new and exciting find that is shaking the bird community. Discovered in a nestbox, this unusual baby has enthusiasts in awe.
A quick reminder that on Friday July 4th my fister LITTLE ANGEL THRIFT will wed the handsome Mr Dixie Adler at the BC Castle page number 239094

  Hi Chico
Hello everybirdie, Zeena here with today's BOTM post. As we land in Brazil, we are cautioned to be very quiet so we don't disturb the Macaws. SHhhhhh!

The Spix's Macaw (Cyanopsitta spixii), also known as the Little Blue Macaw, is a macaw native to Brazil.First discovered by German naturalist Georg Marcgrave, when he was working in the State of Pernambuco, Brazil in 1638 and it is named for German naturalist Johann Baptist von Spix, who collected a specimen in 1819 on the bank of the Rio São Francisco in northeast Bahia in Brazil.
The bird is a medium size parrot weighing about 300 grams (0.66 lb), smaller than most of the large macaws. Its plumage is various shades of blue, with a grey-blue head, light blue underparts, and vivid blue upperparts. Males and females are identical in appearance, the females being a little smaller on average. The Spix Macaw is reported to be extinct in the wild, with the disappearance of one last single male in 2000. All remaining Spix Macaws are now kept in several private breeding programs without the world. Due to their extremely small numbers none are available for public viewing. The largest colony of approximately 40 birds is currently owned by an Arab sheik who has been working on breeding these beautiful birds with the final hope that they will be able to be released into their former remaining habitat.
The Spix Macaws were destroyed in the wild by excessive deforestation and hunting. The colonies were ruthlessly killed, poached for the pet trade and shot for pure sport until they had been eliminated in their territory. The introduction of predators into their habitat, including rats, monkeys and feral cats also aided the quick decline in wild Spix populations. In recent years there have been isolated reports of Spix Macaws in land in protected, isolated locations but this has not been publicly verified, although it possibly might be true, to protect what remaining wild pairs there are.
A sad note, this past Wednesday PRESLEY, the second to last known wild-born member of the species flew to the Rainbow Bridge after a brief illness. Presley had been kept as a pet in the USA for years, but was returned to Brazil in 2008. He left no progeny. He was 40 years old at his death.
Presley's death is a blow to conservation efforts in both a symbolic and literal sense. Critically endangered, these native Brazilian birds (Cyanopsitta spixii) are believed to be extinct in the wild. Decades of deforestation and rampant wildlife trafficking have besieged the medium-size macaws, who also ended up having to compete for nest space with introduced Africanized honeybees.
Now with fewer then 100 living specimens, most closely related, the Spix Macaws future hangs in the balance. This spring heralded in the hatching of 5 babies, 3 of which were due to artificial insemination. Perhaps someday our grandchildren will be able to see the wild Spixs fly free once more.

  Hi Chico
Hello Everybirdie
Today we kick off my month of July BOTM run with a special celebration. It's Canada Day here with all the food,fun, family and firework displays. I hate fireworks, too noisy, but being a Macaw I'm always up for some food, and fun. I want to begin this month by telling you a little bit about myself. Most of you already know my handsome frother SKY, my mischievous fister Little Angel and my adventurous frother Casey, but some may not know me birdsonally.
I joined the Sky Flock in 2013. It was Easter weekend when Momma Deb received the call from my former owner to "come today and get her PLEASE!!!!!" I am sure glad that Momma Deb did, because it was the best thing that happened to me in a long while. I had lived with my first owners for 13-14 years but it became necessary to rehome me and I was sold to a lady who had a whole house full of very large, very aggressive Pitbulls and Rottweilers. I never left my cage and spent a whole year and some living in fear of being attacked by the dogs. I thought things were going to get better when once more I was resold. The lady who bought me had two large dogs who constantly barked and growled at me. I was so stressed I began to pluck some of my feathers out and I never spoke, and hadn't in 2 1/2 years.
It was my best day when Momma Deb arrived to take me away from there. I'd only been there a short while but I was relieved to be going somewhere I hoped would be better. I am very happy here at the Sky Flock, I get out of my cage all the time and love to yell at the other birds to be quiet. Momma Deb discovered I have a rather extensive vocabulary and know how to count to sixteen, and know a number of songs as well.
Enough about me. Let's get our suitcases, cameras and sunscreen ready as we begin our trip to every corner of the world. We will visit some very rare and endangered species, learn about some interesting and unusual birds, and my favorite take a look at some of the awesome mutations showing up around the planet of some of our most common feathered friends.
I will see every one tomorrow.

  Hi Chico,
Hi, long time no blog, but now i'm back...for a while at least! What's going on on BC & what's new?
Mum just posted some pics of some of her stuff. It's just a very small selection of what she's been making. Not so many birds anymore, but she really loves to make Barbie clothes & has a whole big bag full of it. She's been to quite a few markets & her stuff is ever so popular. Tomorrow she's going to one again. It's called "our love market" & all the things on sale have to be made with love, so mum thought that's perfect for her.
Hope you're well & your family is too.
Big hug & birdie kisses,v4u
Jivu ♥

Come visit me, Hi everybirdie, i'm back!!!!.

  Hello Chico~
I hope you are having a great day! I hope the weather is lovely at your home!
It has been a very boring week so far. Nothing exciting to share!
It is sunny and very nice outside so I have been spending some time watching the people in the complex pool. Always seems silly to me to be splashing around and getting all wet. They all seem to enjoy it though! I have been spending a lot of time playing with my measuring cups this week. Mom got a plastic link chain and hung them from the top of the play cage. I love to slam them into the side of the cage and just swing back and forth with them!
It's our weekend now. I know that cleaning in on the schedule but I don't know what else. I think the dog is going to get a bath but I never see that happen. I just see her when she comes out and prances around! She is such a goof and loves everyone to tell her how pretty she looks after a bath.
I hope everything is just perfect at your nest!
Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar

  Please vote me for BOTM!
Hello, I am Pepper, African Grey from the Quebec Flock. I, like most Greys, am quite intelligent and I often put together words to make sentences that surprise Mom to no end. Many of you met me when I got bitten some time ago – when I broke open that lock. Well, that one went in the garbage, and so did another one that I managed to beak open. Mom buys a different brand now.
I am running for BOTM this month, something my frother TiPaul encouraged me to do. While he is flying around voting for his friends to get in the 10K club, he said he will fly farther out of his range to help me get more votes. Thanks fro!
I had a difficult time coming up with a subject that might interest you all. Every birdy has been writing such fascinating things. Then it occurred to me – there are so few flocks from Canada, and just our flock is from Quebec. I am going to take you on a tour of our home city, Montreal… Please come to my page to take a look at the pictures at the bottom for pictures I have posted, and will post every day. Thank you in advance for your support!

Come visit me, Leroy, Little Bit & Chloe - Thank you everybirdy!!, Gizmo - Thanks everybirdy for BOTD!, Max, Jasper - Thanks everybirdy for BOTD!, Micky - Thanks everybirdy for BOTD!, PEPPER-Thanks for BOTM!, TiPaul - Who was 8000???

  Hi Chico my dear old buddy from your Angel Christy
...we are all doing very well here in Rock Island, this is our home and we love it here! Daddy has been asked if he could move anywhere, where would it be! His answer is always the same, we stay right here, thank you! But it we were forced to move, we would choose middle Wisconsin, with all the cold and snow, but the people there are the friendliest folks anywhere, but he also likes Minnesota, but it has issues, with some unfriendly Indians and big time Tornadoes, not exactly a welcoming mat! Romey and I are still best of friends, she always treats me like a lady, just like you used to do! Give my love to momma Tammy & Shannon, and all in your home, see ya next time old friend...love forever, from Angel Christy & dad

  Hello Chico~
I hope you are having a great day! It's 60 and sunny here. Another trick the tourist kind of day!hahaha
The gardeners are here so I've squawked a greeting to them and yelled at the silly humans in the pool! A good days work so far!
Mom has to go to the market later but she promises she won't be gone long. The cat needs some food so I suppose it's okay if she goes. He can be a real pest sometimes but I would not want him to starve! I have my apples and a nice big bag of organic grapes so I'm set! Mom looked a the cherries but they are 6$ a pound and not even organic! I like the grapes better anyway.
Mom fell over Mandy when she got up this morning. She is just fine but I thought we were all going to play some kind of game since she was on the floor! I climbed down to peek out under the cage cover and asked her if she was okay. Merlin was sitting at the end of the bed howling for breakfast even though it was very early and Mandy was looking a bit worried! I started laughing and so did mom, so Mandy calmed down. Merlin just kept howling! He's only a cat so we have to forgive him for being unconcerned! It was nice to start the day off with a laugh!
Yesterday evening was a night of CSI LA. Sister got it from netflix and we enjoyed it. Project Runway is fun sometimes but you are right about the silly clothes and mom doesn't like how mean the people are to each other!
I hope you enjoy your day and get to do some laughing too! The lake trip sounds like lots of fun! Count me in!
Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar

  Hi Chico
As you can see from my pic I'm always ready for some beach action! It sounds like a great plan to me. I might have to bring Peppino, because Willie is off with Hulk, Picabo, and Raffi on the Gizzymo, fishing again, or so they say.
Sebastian, the guy mom trained in reception on Wed, was back today for a 4 hour shift, so he must like it. Mom knows he is really interested in working with the animals, but they don't really train anyone during busy season. He's really nice to work the desk, because it frees up volunteers and staff to do the necessary animal tasks. Mom also recommended that he talk to the education person and maybe get trained in taking animals to events. It would be one way to get to work with them.
Mom worked the avian nursery this morning. The wrens are so cute! All the babies are, of course, but she thinks the wrens are so precious. There are birds in all the incubators, including 6 flickers in the 20 minute one. Those birds get fed every 20 minutes, but in addition to baby bird food, the flickers get mealworms, so it's a pretty intense feeding. Mom had the 20 and 30 minute feedings this morning, so she was pretty much busy with the incubators for the whole 2 hours. I bet all of you know this already, but whenever mom feeds the babies, she has to move them into clean nests and clean the paper under the nests as well. That's a new nest and clean papers every 20 or 30 minutes.
When mom left the center, she picked up the Ott light, which now has a new cord. It's good that it could be fixed, they are expensive lamps.
I hope you are having a great day filled with sunshine and love. Hugs, Falco

  Hi,Chico
Hmmmm, let's see, weather here has been fluxuating from hot (90s) to cool (60s), but mostly in the 70s or 80s as it is this week. Without humidity 70s-80s, sunny and breezy makes for a pleasant spring. However, we are in an awful drought and really need rain. Always say to our friends in the midwest/east coast that our weathers need to meld so they have some sun and warmth and we have some rain.

Okay, we have no particular plans for the w/e and would love to join you and as many friends as can attend the lake party. You can pick us up at any time. You have 'tiel fisters?

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

  Hi Chico
That sounds like lots of fun and cant wait to do that with you all too. Oh yea am sure Angel Chi chi will be there though she is an angel so you have to understand she is there but just in spirit. We are running really late tonight so this is a short one…sorry!! Today mom went to meet up with her sister and guess they shopped a round a bit and then had lunch together too. I squawked at mom when she got home but mom didn’t leave till later to go so guess that is why she got home a bit later too. I guess I should be happy the parronts are retired and don’t work or I would be home alone a lot more! “Friends are relatives you make for yourself “ ~~Your kissin cousin, Gus. V4U (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Chico
Good to see you. I'm doing good here except I have been a little naughty lately with chewing on the cabinets then when my mom tries to stop me and have me step up I bite her.
The weather here has been pretty nice lately except for some heavy rain we had earlier in the week. It's been sunny and in the 70's and low 80's.
Sure hope you don't get those severe storms this time of year can be so scary with the storms. I always worry about all my friends when we see the weather and hear about storms in certain areas.
I would love to go on the pontoon thank you for thinking of me and inviting me let me know if you want me to bring anything. Have a good night.

  Heya, Chico!
I saw you on Willie's page, and I realized that I never replied to your note from a while back! I am so embarrassed!! How are you doing? Mom finally got a new job after being out of work for just about 6 months, and she is adjusting to being back at work again. This place has truly NICE people, or at least the ones she works with are very nice! And she is getting good pay and benefits, so that is pretty darn super! I am adjusted to my routine--after all, I did it for all those years. And I sure do stuff to make Mom pay attention to me--chewing the rubber under the rug in the bathroom, chewing the flooring or the baseboards...I mean, I have to make sure she knows I am around, right?


Today was a good day for Mom. She at least was not super tired from dong nothing. She has meetings tomorrow--can you believe on a Friday? Anyway, she will be involved in a project that should be pretty quickly done. That will be good. She is enjoying her walks outside though. The lake was actually blue today as the sun was out. She is not sure if she will be going on any tomorrow due to the meetings. And it was so gorgeous outside--low 60's, and low humidity. Not bad!

Tell me what has been going on with you! And you could be in the 10K club, too--you are closer to it than I am! Great to hear from you, and hope all is good with your flockily!

Your buddy,
Kaji

  Good Suday morning Sweet Cheeks-from Angel Christy
...it is still always a pleasure to see you on my page! We read all about your close call with the nasty tornadoes there in Nebraska, so glad you all made it through that mess safely! We actually communicate with our old BC friends much less these days, and my dad does not like FB at all, he just goes there to stay in touch with our dearest friends! It seems if you put a note there, it is open to public scrutiny, some undesirable, no more privacy! It is another grand and glorious Sunday morning coming down on us today, don't ya just love these beautiful Spring days! I am wishing all our friends gorgeous weather for their family cook outs and BBQs, and if traveling, we wish you all safe travels on the busy Holiday roads! Please give my love to all in your Sunday home, see ya tomorrow on Memorial Day...

  Hi Chico
Well, today is the big day! A vote for Sam (#212680) gets Iowa Parrot Rescue $3 in donations so make sure to get to his page and vote for him.
Yesterday the pool opened, so mom went up for a couple of hours. She couldn't stay long, though, too much to do here. Last night was volunteer appreciation night for the Wildlife center and Shelter, so mom went out to a little dinner party for the volunteers. She left early, though, because driving at night is painful right now.
Today is a joint birthday party for her grand niece (9) and grand nephew (10) so she'll be heading over there after the pool today. It's at 3, which means she should be home in plenty of time to play with us tonight. She got out our summer carriers, which means we will soon be going outside for a bit of sunshine and fresh air. I can't wait.
I hope you have some fun plans for today and tomorrow. Happy Memorial day to all, please take a minute to thank those who gave their lives in service to the country. Hugs, Falco

  Hello Chico~
I hope you are having a fun day! It's still cloudy and rainy here but then it wouldn't be a holiday weekend if it wasn't rainy!Hahahahahahaha
Mom is working her regular schedule so we are getting things ready for her to start her work week tonight. I hear that the cages are going to be cleaned too so I'm not too happy about that. My night cage gets put into mom's shower so I don't ever see that happen. I would get to cranky if I had to see that!
Mom and Ian went to see X-Men yesterday and really enjoyed it. Jennifer didn't want to see it so she hung out with me! We watched Project Runway repeats and it was awful! The snacks were good though.
The family went over to a new Mexican restaurant last night for dinner. Mom said is was okay but not worth the money. They don't go out to eat much so when they do they like to go somewhere spectacular!
The voting for Sam 212680 to benefit Iowa Parrot Rescue starts at 12am ESt tonight! I know I can count on you for a vote!
Enjoy the day and I hope it is just perfect!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar

  HI ya Chico~
I hope you are having a great day! The rain came back here last night. We had this beautiful sunny week and now the rain is back for the weekend!hahahahaha It always happens like that. Mom is working and we don't BBQ so it doesn't really matter to us. Nothing stops up here because of the rain because if it did nothing would ever get done!
The fundraiser for Sam 212680 is this Sunday the 25th. I know most birds are already voting for him but if you know some birds that I don't, perhaps you could ask them to drop off a vote!! Falco, Willie and Peppino's mom and Raffikki's mom are going to match the donations so it is going to be a huge gift for the birds who live at the Iowa Parrot Rescue! I know it's a holiday weekend but I hope every bird can spare a few minutes to vote. It just happens that Memorial Day weekend is the day I came to live with mom! I think that is a great reason to celebrate!
I've been doing my part by ripping up mom's notebook with all her notes in it! She has to write everything down so that she remembers who is having a hatchday, etc. I have been shredding the old stuff so she doesn't get confused with too many lists! It's the least I can do since I am so very good at ripping things up!
I hope you enjoy the day and that it is just perfect!
Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Chico
Yesterday was good! Mom got home from dinner early, so we had her from about 6pm on! We all got lots of attention.
Do you wake your parronts every day? I do! I start with the sunshine, I yell out the song of my people! Pretty soon everybirdie here joins in, too.
Today mom and her family celebrate Mother's Day with a dinner out, but they are going in the afternoon to accommodate the grands, who both have busy schedules. That means that we will have mom all day once she gets back.
Sugar's mom and mine are combining today to get lots of votes for Sam, #212680. I know you vote for him every day, but if there's anyone you blog who isn't appearing on his page, please encourage them to vote for him. After all, it will help in 2 ways: Sam will get much needed votes for BOTM and Iowa Parrot Rescue will get much needed money to help with their rescue efforts. What could be better? More bang for the vote, I say!
It's a sunny day here, but cool today, so I don't think we will be going anywhere outside, but mom may finally get the other half flat planted. I hope you are having a great day and getting sun and scritchies! Hugs, Willie
