Mom shopped at the pet store where I was patiently waiting for her. For months she'd stopped and talked to me and my brothers but always left without me. I was starting to take it birdsonally. After my brothers went to their new homes, I had mom's undivided attention yet still she kept leaving the store without me. Then one evening after having shopped for the first Grey in the family and sharing a hello with me through the glass, the parronts headed for home, again leaving me behind. But when Mom commented to Dad that it was just sad to see a sweet little bird waiting week after week for a home, Dad, bless his heart, said, "Why don't you just go back and get her." (I love ya, Dad!) So the car was turned around on a bend in the road, a spot my family now calls "Kelly's Corner" and raced back to the store. Mom was just sure, having made the decision to bring me home, someone else would take me. Obviously that didn't happen. She was meant to be my buddy and my photographer.

Hi! My name is Kelly

I am a Congo African Grey from Monmouth, IL.

Kelly-Bird*-*-*- *-*-*-*-*-*-*-* I joined the BC on 2.28.2007*-*-*-- **-*-*-*
My Hatchday is 4.16.2004


10 years old   F

Congo African Grey

It used to be an almond that was the first thing I picked out of the nut jar but lately it's been a raw cashew as first choice.

For some reason, I have to perch on the very end of the branch that's suspended from the ceiling in my birdroom. I like to hide in my cardboard box on the top shelf of the closet in my room while the cleaning services are being tended to. I also like to perch on the top of the closet doors when they're open.

When out of the birdroom, my goal is to make it to the kitchen counters whether by flying there or climbing up the handles of the kitchen drawers. This is only necessary during the time my wings have been trimmed.


Nothing much bothers me. If you think you need to touch my tail though, I might think I need to touch your finger.

My mom's happy to be my faithful sidekick.

I learn my new words from Dad but won't talk while he's around. He has to hope a video can be recorded so he can hear my latest words.

If all else fails, pose pretty.

A Hatchday poem found and shared by SamIAm:

Happy birday, our precious friend,
Our love for you, we wish to extend.
Experiences filled, with joy and laughter,
Special memories, we shall recall after.

From the beginning, you made us smile,
Accepted us, without any trial.
Never judged or jumped to conclusions,
Exciting friendship; random infusions.

We cannot ask, for anything more,
So many things, we simply adore.
Hope this birday never ends,
In our hearts, time transcends.

  Hello Pretty Kelly
Kelly
Thank you for your nice note. Such an honor to hear from you lovely lady. We are having an amazing winter. mom,s neighbor said it's the worst in 16 yrs since his living in B' more so there you have it. It was a stroke of luck that mom moved us to the 2 nd floor last year where we have our own window and the room is so much warmer too. These old 200 year old houses were built with some knowledge of that ole heat rising! We've been very comfortable all winter but we know that 1 st floor can get chilly. The fireplace insert helps a lot there. Amazing
how us Australian birds understand winter in this harbor town of Baltimore! We always wonder what it was like for families who lived here before central heat and. Before the war of 1812! All we can say is that there must have been a lot of love in this house because we feel a sense of peace and harmony here. And we hope our living here does justice to the good folks living before us. It's a good home and a sense that all was good here for many generations.
The storm last weekend was pretty bad but the weekend before we didn't hear any church bells at 8 am and that's never happened before. Must have been the weather but we never want to see the nice folk at the next block missing their service. We know all is well when that block is double parked with parishioners. Theirs is an historic church too.
Well enough of my view of history. tomorrow promises to be more normal for our routine

All the best to you pretty girl from your faithful friend and admirorer
Romeo
I hope you can hear the little song I'm signing to you while this is typed

Come visit me, Sunny(RIP) and Haley, Romeo and Julie(loving memory of Maxi ) & Tahoe and Pearl.

It's been way too long but I want you to know I've been thinking of you and wish you a belated Happy Valentine's Day pretty one!
We had a quiet day. Mom's been sick with a cold and staying low. Julie and Halley are sitting on eggs so that is surely interesting. When they step away to eat everyone else looks in the feed bowl made into a nest to check on the eggs. Now I understand why Capt Nemo was so aggressive a while back that Mom put him in birds jail for some time.
Well sweet hugs to you. Know that spring must surely be in the air with these eggs a lay in'
That means the flowers will be up before you know it!
Stay warm

  Hello sweet Kelsey from your old pal Jenny
...I am aware you do not visit your old friends to much anymore, and for that I place the blame on my lovely aunt Denny!

We love you and your flock and loved being a part of the old ongoing dream! Have a great day most beautiful of all Grey birds! We are having warmer temps, but maybe a rain/sleet mix for awhile tomorrow! Valentine's Day is next Saturday, I hope yours will be a good one, give our love to Alfie, and all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow...

  Hey Kelly Girl.....its me, Grady!!
Flying by with a belated Happy New Year for you, your Mom, and the rest of the McFlock. I hope 2015 is treating you well so far. Nothing new here on the Kansas prairie. I stayed with my Mom's friend for a month while she went galavanting thru California and Oregon. She has a new human baby up there that she calls a great-nephew that she went to see in Oregon. He also has a two year old brother, she said she enjoyed her visit, but she was sure gone a long time!!! I'm glad she didn't bring any crying babies back home with her!! The last time she babysat one of those little crying bundles overnight (so Mommy could sleep all night) it woke me up with its noisy crying wanting food in the middle of the night.....argh, I was not a happy camper, and I promptly spoke my opinion to IT saying "BE QUIET GO NIGHT NIGHT!!!" I mean really, I don't get fed in the middle of the night....what nerve, and IT was a visitor!!! Well enough about that, I had better be flying home, it's late and I need my rest so that I can destroy another toy tomorrow!!

Wing hugs and beakie kisses,
Grady

  Hello My Sweetest Kelly,
I thought I'd fly by this drizzly night, to drop off a quick kiss.

Things have been crazy here this week. Mama says she was working the zombie shift. That's day and night for too long! lol.

Big news from us birdies, well Pepper. He got a nice new ENORMOUS cage. His 4 year old cage was not good quality and now the time was right for a new one. It makes my cage look like a tiny shoebox. I'll have to share pictures.

Have a greyt weekend and get into tons of stuff for me! Good night, P*>x<*K

Holy bejeebers, now that was a football game for the ages, don't ever try to disrupt an Amazon that is heck bent on winning! While winning was important to us Indian Braves, the part I enjoyed most was seeing the intensity of so many of our friends on both teams! We have never seen Cookie, Cori, and others with an unfriendly snarl, I swear some of you were snorting smoke out of your nares! With Kiddo's coaching, Chyna's cheering, we shall never forget last night's game! Sunday love to all our battered football buddies, and give our love to all in your home, see ya tomorrow...

  Hi Kelly Girl....its me, Grady
Thank you for the Thanksgiving wishes! I hope that you and Cousin Tom had a good visit this year. It just wouldn't be the same if he didn't stop by every year ;) I know he's glad to come over AFTER the oven is turned off for the day!! I stayed home this year while Mom went to Aunt Karen's for dinner, but that was O.K. with me because she has three little grandsons that would make me very very nervous. Little fingers poking at me would not be a good thing. Did your Mom cook you a special dinner minus our relatives (turkey)? I don't like human food except for corn and fruit, so I stuck with my pellets. I did get a couple extra walnuts for my special Turkey-Day treat, and oh how I do love them!!!! Well, it's past my perchtime so I need to fly....pecking your vote button thingy :)

Your Kansas Cousin, Grady

  Hi My Kelly-Girl,
Just a quick fly by to say Hi and that all is well here. Oddly enough we've not yet had our first frost of the season, which usually happens in Sep.

Mama has been playing us birdies a cd of kids songs which Pepper and I whistle along to VERY loudly.

I hope you and all the McFlock are well,

Your Fluffy one who loves you very much!

  Hi Sweetie,
It's me, your Mr. Fluffy. I was thinking of you and had to swoop down for a good night kiss.

Things are alright here. Of course I'm the daily entertainment and continue to keep Mama on her toes. Exercising these humans is a hard chore. Climbing into Pringle's cage is a good way to test fast reactions. Too much fun!!!!

I've been groaning like Tuna lately. The pug in her makes it hard for her to breath properly at times and it's so much fun to imitate. Guess what? Pepper does a pretty good job at it too. So we can all groan in unison.

We had a small amount of rain tonight. It's something and we hope for more. Otherwise the weather has been keeping amazingly warm and nice. We've been out most days. Soon the aviary will be too cool, because of the shade, but our small cage can be placed in the sun. Hope the warmth lasts.

Good night my greyt Princess. Sleep tight and know that your fluffy one is always thinking of you,

I have been so neglectful and haven't stopped by to visit lately. Mom doesn't go visiting very much on BC anymore. I think when she gets a reminder from the humans that run this place, we fly by for a minute. I can see from your picture that you are as gorgeous as ever!! It won't be very long before 'ol Cousin Tom will be coming to visit, and I know you will be the perfect hostess as always :)

  Hi Kelly
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!
Love from

  Hi Kelly-Birrrrd!
It's me, your fluffy guy with a late night note.

I feel terrible that I barely come by here anymore. Doesn't mean I don't think of you as I sit by the window and chatter and toss my toys around. This morning I bathed and made my feathers so soft.

We had about four days where the sunlight was bright and the sky blue. Now the smoke is as bad as ever, if not worse. The two fires I'd been mentioning earlier are pretty much contained, but still burning. The newer fire, about ten miles away is still going strong, but it's very difficult terrain to get too. They have mule strings bringing in supplies. Northwest to us is an Enourmous fire. It'll be at 100,000 acres tomorrow. It's burning at a lake we've hiked to in the mountains and has almost reached the picnic area I've been to in the past. Luckily no homes have been destroyed by that fire. Most of it is in the wilderness. The air has remained dry with no rain in sight. We'll see what the Fall will bring.

Take care my grey one and sleep tight!

Your long overdue friend,

P*>X<*K

  Hi Kelly
Hi everybirdy!
Tia here, sorry I haven't been around in quite awhile, sooooo much has been going on, I'll let u know all about it. Mom FINALLY unpacked the box that contained her notebook that has everybirdy's page #s! Today, mom & I ask for ur prayers.

A good friend of mom's has an adorable 4 yr old daughter, Mila. The past 14 months have been a horrific nightmare for Dawn, Mila's mother. Mila was born with Li Fraumeni Syndrome, which is an EXTREMELY RARE genetic condition. Certain receptors shut off & leaves that person very prone to cancer. Last summer, Mila began acting strangely...bobbing her head around, running into things, suddenly falling down & grabbing her head & screaming. Her pediatrician immediately ordered a brain MRI. Dawnh& Neil were devastated to learn that their precious 3 yr old daughter had Choroid Plexus Carcinoma, an EXTREMELY RARE & very aggressive brain cancer. Mila had brain surgery 3 days later. It was touch & go for the 1st week, they had to restart her heart 4 times. Miraculously, she made it thru, although she spent 3 months in intensive care. She was released fromthe hospital 2 days before Christmas...a true Christmas miracle...Mila had ABSOLUTELY NO mental deficit! Since then, she must have an MRI every 3 months. All of them had been perfectly spotless - until her MRI last week.

Mila now has 2 aggressive tumors - the larger one, the size of a small navel orange, & the other is a bit larger than a golfball. The larger one is in the same spot as the one removed last year, but it is tangled in her nerves & has been deemed inoperable. She will once again have to endure chemotherapy & this time start radiation. The smaller tumor will be removed. I just spoke to her mom Dawn, they will be leaving for Children's Hosp in Pittsburgh in a couple hrs. Mila will be having brain surgery tomorrow morning at 7:30am. to remove the smaller tumor & hopefully be able to remove part at least part of the larger one. We are all heartbroken that this precious little girl hasto go thru tthis again. I hope all our dear friends will say a special prayer for Mila, that God in Heaven will once again restore her health! Thank you my dear friends & God Bless u all.
Love
TiaMaria & mom Sandy

How have you been? I'm kind of looking for a girlfriend, and asked Miss Lalo, but we're not sure Uncle Chuck would approve. He rather grumpy like my dad, hee hee.

Well we had a cook out earlier this afternoon, and as usual, pops managed to burn the hot dogs so you couldn't tell what they were. Mom said that she making dinner, RESERVATIONS..... And I can't say I don't blame her. Sometimes pops cooking leaves a lot to be desired.

  Hi Kelly-Birrrrd!
I'm zooming through with a very quick update.

The good news is that the Log fire is now %95 contained, and the evacuation advisory is lifted. They are still fighting it and keeping it in the boundaries.

The Whites fire is crazy and much too big. Over 32,000 acres.

A new fire started last week, is now over 700 acres, but further out in the wilderness. Crazy terrain has made it impossible for the workers to do anything on it yet.

We've been under really thick smoke and ashes all week. That's getting to everyone and we feel terrible for the wild birds who can't get away from it.

A quick kiss from your crazy fluffy guy,

  Hello Sweetie,
It was nice of you to fly by with your concerns. It's been pretty smoky here, though not quite as much smoke as we had last year. We did get out a few times last week, for just a short time.

We're still doing ok here. The weather hasn't been nice to the firefighters and one fire further into the wilderness has been spreading like crazy (I'll write more further down on this one). The Log fire, (close to us) has so many personnel working on it, trying to stop it going over another ridge. There are too many residences in the way. They brought in the national guard today, to help with the dozer lines. You've seen photos of the terrain up there, it's not been easy for the firefighters.

If we do go under evacuation advisory, we have one farmer who's offered to take all the animals. So that's a big relief.

The people who brought their goats to us last year just had to evacuate tonight. The larger fire here, is in the mountains on the other side of their home. We've not heard from them, so not sure where they put their goats. There are some scattered homes up in the mountains there and after the heavy winds, had to evacuate fast. The firefighters also had to get out before being stranded. Very scary stuff!

It's a war zone out there, with helicopters and jets flying overhead with water and retarder.

Well I'd better leave you and hope you get some pleasant dreams.

Good night and wonderful to talk with you! It's been so long.

  Hi Kelly, great news from our home, Jenny & LaLo
So sorry I wasn't on BC and FB much yesterday, dad was so busy prepping our home and a cage for our new flock member! He is a bird we have known for a long time, and loved him for all those years! He is a Citron Crested Too, and is the spitting image of our Angel! His name is "LIMON", we like that name and we are going to keep it that way! He is very sweet, but like all Toos, he has a stubborn side, we'll just deal with it! His current mom is having severe separation anxiety, and we fully understand that pain! He will be coming to our home tonight, and will became a full fledged Dallas flock member, needless to say, dad and all the rest of us are very excited and full of anticipation to see what the future brings! Have a great throw back Thursday, we certainly plan to, and give my love to all in your happy bird home...

Love from Jenny, Ms LaLo, & our Dallas family

PS~Limon has rekindled the spark of love in my daddy he thought was gone forever, life has taken turn for the better, we have not seen him this happy for more than 2 years!

It's your Mr. Fluffy flying by with a kiss from chilly CA.

I heard that you are once again grounded, but I'm sure you're too busy to think about that now, what with the aviary waiting for you everyday. Winter will come soon enough and you'll feel the air under your wings again.

Mama got her big order sent out today, but now she's already rushing on the next one. I have to sit by and keep her entertained. Lots of fun. Of course I have to keep her exercised too. You know, getting into stuff that makes her jump up and come to me. Hee hee.

Sweet dreams my love~~~~ P*>X<*K

Come visit me, Pepper, Poirot, Pringle ~ Thank you for the Hatchday wishes! & Artistic Avian Avatars.

  Hey Friend!
Hi Beautiful Kelly!
Just wanted to stop by and send you a quick Hello and let you know you have been on my mind! Hope things are going well for you and the rest of the flock. I am doing okay.. Still been a little on the quiet side.. Mom and I still miss my little pal Mr. B and we think of him all the time. Its just not the same without him. Mom got me a new birdie lamp recently. I used to have one years ago then we stopped using it. Then with all the loss in the house and me being so quiet she thought maybe the bird light would cheer me up some and give me the vitamins I needed.. Well I did seem kinda excited at first, but back to being my quieter self again. I do get a bit happier when we have company around. I try to keep up with all the noise and get a little louder than usual and I laugh with everyone. That makes Mom very happy! Did Mom tell you I like the new tv show "Impractical Jokers"? Dont know if you ever saw it but its a show about a group of friends who play jokes and funny stunts on random unexpected people. Its very funny and when Mom has it on and she is laughing I start cracking up too!! Hahaha! Mom thinks I like it but little does she know Im just laughing because she is ;)
Well Kelly..just wanted you to know your on our mind.. Love ya Buddy and Ill stop by again soon! Take care
Xoxo
Murphy :)

Come visit me, MR. BIRDIE..(RIP) Your flying free now..I love you & Murphy.

  Hi Kelly... Please vote me 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 - WOW! Thanks everybirdy for BOTD!, TiPaul - Thanks everybirdy for 10K HOF Club!, Floop - Thanks for BOTD!, Marley - I'm 13 - a teenager! WOW. Cake for all!, Zak - Thank you everybirdy for BOTD! & Lee-Roial RIP - Thanks for remembering me..

  Hello Kelly~
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 had to go to the market but Jennifer is off today so she was here to keep me company! I don't need anything since 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. She had to get food for Merlin and even though he's a pest, I wouldn't want him to starve! He would drive us all crazy with his howling if there wasn't any food for him! He howls anyway but it's worse when he wants food!
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!
I hope you enjoy your day and get to do some laughing too!
Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar

  HI KELLY *v* !!!!!
Thank you for your vote...I really appreciate it...Hope you are having a nice day...V4U...Today I will finish the second part of "Treating a Sick Bird"....Make sure that water is freely available; a sick Cockatiel will find it easier to drink from an open hook-on-container, rather than a tubular drinker.Put food within easy reach; sick birds can sometimes be persuaded to feed from the hand, but do not cause them stress at any stage. As the cockatiel's condition improves, you can gradually lower the temperature of its surroundings. Before returning a bird to its regular cage, make sure that it is fully recovered and re-acclimatized. Egg-binding is another very serious condition that often happens to female Cockatiels.Sometimes they continue to lay eggs and they must be watched closely. Because one egg might get stuck in the vent and if it is not removed it could become fatal to the cockatiel.A bird in this condition must be handled very gently, so as not to break the egg.The most effective treatment is usually an injection of calcium, given by a veterinarian.This appears to restore the the muscular activity, so that the female cockatiel can lay the egg without difficulty.In extreme cases your veterinarian may undertake surgery as a last resort..Check your cockatiels diet after a case of egg-binding. It may be that insufficient cuttlefish bone was available to them, or perhaps they could benefit from a supplement containing Vitamin D, which is responsible for moving calcium stores around the body.....Have a "HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY EVERYBODY"....Many birdie wing hugs....Sam :o)

  HI KELLY *v* !!!!!
Thanks for your votes....Wow!! Sure have been busy today with the votes...V4U...Today my campaign blog will be about "Treating a sick bird"....Accurate diagnosis of illness in cockatiels can be very difficult without laboratory assistance,but you will soon see that a bird is sick.It will sit quietly, with its plumage no longer sleek, and its eyes may be closed.The droppings will alter in appearance and,in some cases,can even show traces of blood.If you begin treatment during the early stages of the illness, there is a good possibility that the bird will make a full recovery.Antibiotic drugs,prescribed by a veterinarian if necessary, can be administered via the cockatiel's drinking water or, in more acute cases injected directly by the veterinarian.Carefully follow all instructions about dosage and never stop a course of treatment before the recommended time.Antibiotics are useful in countering bacterial disease, but are of little direct value in viral and most fungal infections. Fortunately, viral infections are uncommon in cockatiels and the main problem involving fungi is candidiasis,which can be controlled by feeding a well-balanced diet.Sick birds need a warm environment up to 90 degrees F or 32 degrees C.You can keep them in a hospital cage with an infrared lamp.Choose a 'dull emitter'variety, because this produces heat but not light.Suspend the lamp over part of the cage.The cockatiel will then be able to adjust its position,moving closer to the heat to the heat source as necessary...Tomorrow I will continue part 2 of "Treating your sick bird"....Hope you are having a great Sunday....Birdie wing hugs to you...Sam :o)

  Hi Kelllly Birrrrrrd!!
Now I'm the one so behind. I really enjoyed your note..epistle, I mean and Yes, Mom's doing better..looking fwd to being off meds soon and increased stamina.....pooches still need to be told quiet..by me....sheee!!...Cookie and Molly continue their same ole boring antics while I continue to keep everyone on their toes..ie. on my Hatchday, I surprised Mom by jumping off my perch and waddled across the dining table and chowed down on the extra party favors and snacks at the other end. I hit Hatchday Jackpot!! Ohhh yeahhh!....and, No, Dad has no further political plans. Like he said, They had their chance!! It's all going well here. Mom's next scan is 16 June and sees Drs. on 20th and 24th. In hopes the lung inflammation from the radiation is gone completely. She feels a difference, but is looking fwd to "normal" energy! Hoping you and all at the McFarm are doing well. Please give Aunt Denise a special wing hug from one of her biggest fans. Wishing you a greyt weekend!!...now, back to barking and telling myself to be quiet...hey, it's all in a Grey's day!! hugs, Tahoe

Come visit me, Cookie, Molly & Tahoe.
