  Hi Chico
I know some of you don’t know a whole bunch about us ekkies but one of our traits is forever cleaning our beak off after we eat. Sometimes my water gets pretty messy so mom has to change it often and other times I wipe it off on what ever is handy when I am done eating. It can be a condo bar, perch, or this stone thing mom has on my condo porch, or this toy with sticks sticking out of it or my heater. Mom is forever cleaning those things off and it sort of dries on my heater so takes a bit of scrubbing to get it clean. Mom always says about what a mess I make it while she is cleaning it too. I think its good exercise for mom to have the extra chores I create for her to do though. It keeps her out of trouble too LOL. “Sometimes people ask mom how she can be friends with people she has never met and mom tells them then you have never been on bird channel I bet. That about sums it up to my friend” ~~ Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

we were so happy to see that the little bunny is back sitting in our yard. we were so afraid something had happened to him because he has been gone for about a month. he is now sporting a long haired winter coat. he needs it because it is dropping into the 40s now at night. of course in a month that will seem warm and will be our average day temps.

Mom went to a craft show though she wasn’t going to go at first she finally got her tail feathers moving and went and she sure was glad she did. There was 40 c raft booths and lots to see and knowing mom she went thru it at least twice if not more too. She came home with a wooden intricate cut out of a bird ~ now who would ever think she would buy something like that ???LOL. “You know you’re a bird person when your pockets contain more almonds then money.” Leaving a vote for you my friend… Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Just another cold (49 to 51 degrees for a high) and rainy day. I was busy destroying some new toys. Mom waited until I was finished to clean my area. I wonder why? I thought it looked nice. It finally stopped raining at dinner time.

Yesterday mom and dad went up to the farm since dads brother and sister are home for a while as well as dads brother in law too. I didn’t really care since it was a great day for napping with the colder temperatures. I got on my perch beside my heater in my condo and boy did that feel good. Mom and dad went out with everyone for dinner and from there mom and dad came home so they were home early. If this cold weather keeps up I am going to need to find my winter gauchies !! “You know you’re a bird person when your pockets contain more almonds then money.” Leaving a vote for you my friend… Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Breaking news: A massive pesticide company has just asked the U.S. government to increase the legal limit for its bee-killing pesticides by 4000%.

That’s right. Four. Thousand. Percent.

Bees are already facing a massive global die-off. This could be a death sentence for millions more bees. Bees fill a crucial ecological role as pollinators and are essential for agriculture, and are responsible for every third bite of food we eat. In other words: No bees, no farms. No farms, no food.

because of this we have come to the conclusion that all CEO's of chemical companies are space aliens intent on the annihilation of all life on earth as we know it. just watch any alien space movie and you will see we are right!

HAPPY TGIF DAY
we didn't get much of a storm the other day but temps has certainly dropped. today was no higher than 62. i know we will get some warm days here and there but hate the thought of cold weather coming.

since dad won't go anywhere he sent mom to the Olive Garden on wednesday night to bring home dinner. she got braised beef tips for both of them and lots of salad. after bringing it home and eating it mom and dad will now call the restaurant the Vomit Garden. they became so sick mom actually thought she was going to die. she spent the whole day yesterday in bed. today they are both fine.

Mom washed a few clothes this morning but most went in the dryer since its so cold here. Mom says it doesn’t look like any warm up even next week either. Guess that means I wont be outside for a while if at all.

I hope all is well! I've been having some major computer problems but I still get by to leave a vote!
Dad says we are going to replace all the insides since they are pretty old. We built this one so we know how to do it. It's surprisingly easy but then you have to deal with all the software! That's the tricky part but dad knows how and so doe the skin brother!! I have hopes it will all be fixed very soon. I really don't like it interfering with my social time!!

Dads sister left to go to the farm this morning. I liked sitting on Auntie and hated to see her leave but dad said she will come back again soon. I went to bed at my regular time last night so I wouldn’t be tired today. It was a good thing cause I had to help mom clean today. It got very cold here during the day so no out side time for me today. “You know you’re a bird person when your pockets contain more almonds then money.” Leaving a vote for you my friend… Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Today dads sister flew in from Georgia. She must be related to me if she can fly and I do like her. She is spending the night with us and going to the farm in the morning to trim the shrubs and spend a few days there then.

today mom heard the crows making all kinds of racket so she knew the hawk was back. she couldn't find where the hawk was perched but she did see the crows yelling and flying from one tree so she knew the hawk was perched there. finally the hawk couldn't take it anymore and flew off. the crows became very happy and flew away also.

There are a few bunnies around here and dad feeds them so they stick close by. One is a baby and so cute to see him stretched out in the shade in the grass just relaxing. Yesterday dad looked out and saw a little hawk in the tree so he went out and chased that hawk away cause he figured he was going to have that little rabbit for a snack!

I want to thank everybirdy for their prayers! Mila's family is truly grateful! We all know the power of prayer is a powerful thing...but we are all in shock over little Mila's progress. She had brain surgery 7:30am on Friday. When the surgeons went in, they discovered that some of what was tumor, was actually scar tissue from her surgery lastyyear, & sort of made a pocket that the larger tumor was sitting in. They were able to ENTIRELY remove BOTH tumors! On Saturday, she was moved to a regular room & they had her up walking! On Sunday, less than 48hrs upon completion of her surgery, MILA WAS SENT HOME...TRULY A MIRACLE!!!
Mila's family would still appreciate ur prayers. Since this cancer came back so quickly & aggressively, doctors are going to treat it very aggressively with chemo & radiation. Mila is doing wonderfullly! She has to take it easy, but she's up & playing with all of her princess toys! She'll walk up to u, give u a hug & tell u that she has a boo-boo & that herhhead hurts. It's truly amazing & miraculous! All things are possible with God!

it was a gorgeous day today. mom was cleaning and refilling the wild bird baths in the back of the house before she brought us outside for some fresh air and sun. she saw and heard at the same time some sort of commotion on the edge of our property that slopes down. she thought it was a deer but wasn't sure so walked over to check it out. it wasn't a deer at all but a red tailed hawk that had flown down to grab a red squirrel. when the hawk saw mom it flew right over her head minus any dangling squirrel and took off into the sky. the little red squirrel was making the most pitiful noise but seemed ok. after mom finished with the bird baths and brought us outside she made sure to not leave us alone for even one second.

Another wrong weather report for today. It was sunny but not beach warm. So, the parronts ran errands. Dad's pkup went in for repair. Mom hopes it will be ready early so they can get some beach time (if it's warm) before dad's golf. I have my swimsuit, flip flops and sunblock ready, just in case.

Today was another pretty day and I finally got to go out for a sunbath too. Mom washed clothes and hung them out on the line. She pulls the big curtain back and aims my condo so I can see out the window and watch her hanging the clothes. I yell really loud and mom hears me cause she looks up at the window and waves to me when she is out there and that sure makes me happy too. I wish we could have this type of weather all year round too. “You know you’re a bird person when your pockets contain more almonds then money.” Leaving a vote for you my friend… Gus (RIP Chi chi)

today mom has us outside for exactly 10 minutes. it was cool at 72 but it was very sunny. mom smelled something awful which was blowing in from the s/e which is unusual since most winds blow in from the n/w. dad screamed get those birds inside and mom frantically gathered us up and brought us back in just when my friend the lonely blue jay came over to see me. the parents thinks the smell is a new neighbor dong something toxic with their house.

Are Pesticides Lowering Our Intelligence?
fascinating research originating from Harvard’s School of Public Health. Published in Lancet Neurology, assessed five chemicals and metals known as “neurotoxicants” which are substances that are toxic to the brain and nervous system. The researchers analyzed the effects of a group of pesticides known as “organophosphates.”

After assessing the effects of typical organophosphate exposure in children aged 0 to 5, the Harvard researchers found that this class of pesticides caused a collective drop in IQ of 16,899,488 points. Because brain functions develop sequentially, the full effects of early neurotoxic damage might not become apparent until school age or beyond.

Because early childhood exposure to pesticides through playing on sprayed lawns and eating produce containing the toxins can result in a loss of cognitive skills, the exposure reduces these children’s intellectual and economic potential. the health implications to children (and potentially adults as well, since this study only explored the effects on children) is of serious concern.

After assessing the full economic impact, the scientists estimated that for each loss of one IQ point a person‘s estimated lifetime earnings capacity also dropped by USD $18,000 or €12,000.

The journal Environmental Health Perspectives established a link between pesticide exposures and autism.

With the mounting evidence of the health, social, environmental, and economic implications of our continued use of toxic pesticides, isn’t it time for a total ban of these toxic substances?

This morning mom was trying to get things done here so I knew she was planning on probably going somewhere. Yep she got ready and said she was going to the bird show today. Well at least that isn’t too bad cause she does come back with some things for me usually. Mom was going to get a box of millet but Cindy didn’t have that but mom did get me a neat climbing mat though I am still watching to make sure its safe first. I know mom was looking at some fids too …I could smell them on her but at least she didn’t come home with any. She says her hands are full taking care of me LOL. “A real friend tells you when you have bird food on your beak” Leaving a vote for you…Hugs~~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Northern Michigan still has 1500 people without power, we are lucky to get ours back. They said that we had four consecutive severe t-storms and that's why it lasted so long. My dad says that was the most impressive lighting he has ever seen, I don't like that and neither does mom. We also didn't like those loud thunder booms that lasted for hours shaking our house. It's nice to be peaceful again ... ahhhh a good night's sleep.

Guess mom is done flying around for a while cause today she went to get her feathers cut. They were getting rally long and mom said they were getting all tangled up in the curling iron. When she got home she disappeared for a good while and when I yelled for her she would yell back. Finally when she came out she had curls again so guess she gave herself another perm. “A real friend tells you when you have bird food on your beak” Leaving a vote for you…Hugs~~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

we are just now getting our august weather with temps in the 90s. the cicadas are making cicada racket and it sure doesn't feel like fall even though our trees have started to lose their leaves and their are acorns falling everywhere and the days are getting shorter. HEY i guess that is fall weather

we are sad today we just read that monarch butterflies have decreased by 90 percent along with lightening bugs. we were amazed to see a few tiger moths and blue butterfly flying around the yard during all the sewage work yesterday.“The monarch is the canary in the cornfield, a harbinger of environmental change that we’ve brought about on such a broad scale that many species of pollinators are now at risk if we don’t take action to protect them” - Dr. Lincoln Brower, preeminent monarch researcher and conservationist, who has been studying the species since 1954

anyway the work is done and mom took us outside for about 45 minutes today around 5pm today. dad says its too hot for us but mom keeps us in the shade and knows we need to get a few uv rays in before the weather tuns cold.

HAPPY TGIF DAY
