  HI CHIRPY
before Cori begins her speech Boo Boo dusts her off and then wishes all the birds a wonderful day.
found mostly in the old world, the Kingfisher is a bright jewel of a bird who skims over the water in a flash of blue and orange, dicing for small fish, crayfish, frogs and insects.its eyes have oval lenses enabling it to see well in the air as well as underwater. wearing the Kingfishers feathers was believed to heighten the wearers beauty.in britton it was believed the bird could glow in the dark. it was believed that the Kingfisher was originally a dull colored bird but Noah releases the Kingfisher from his arc in order to find land. after being confined for so long the bird flew up to the sky until it took on the blue color of the heavens. then it flew so close to the sun its breast was scorched so it was forced to dive into the water below . at this point it remembered it was suppose to find land and went in search of the ark but could no longer find it since Noah had long since landed on Mt Arafat. this is why the Kingfisher continues to this day flying along rivers calling out to Noah. it was also believed that upon death the birds did not decay so their bodies were placed among clothes to preserve them. whoever owned dead Kingfisher would be granted grace and loveliness by wearing its feathers. plucking feathers from a Kingfisher and throwing them in water, then retrieving only the feathers that floated and stroking a loved one with them was considered a powerful love talismans. dead Kingfishers hung up by their beaks with a thread foretold the direction the wind would blow by which direction their breast faced.
RENEGE AFFIRM, AND TURN THEIR HALEYCON BEAKS
WITH EVERY GALE AND VARY OF THEIR MASTERS…..shakespeare
it is amazing how birds are able to survive despite man! the amazon and green Kingfishers are found from Mexico to Argentina and are stable at about 500,000 in population.

  Hi Chirpy
We are so sorry it has been a month since our last blogging but the parront has been busy working 5am to 1:30pm for the last 8 weeks. She needs to save some money and also to pay home and car insurance. The A/C broke and she does not know yet how much will be the cost to repair it. The weather is getting hot here already.She also needs a new car, so many expenses.

On Monday 24February she got her first injection on the lower back, there was no much improvement after it, last Monday she got 2 more injections on her lower back, so far her lower back is not bothering her. On Monday 31 she will have another injection on the cervical area.

Also the computer is getting slow, and she does not understand windows 8 yet so she could start using her new laptop.

This is our current situation. Since she is very busy we don't know yet when we will be able to blog again.

This is all for know

See you soon

Cori and Boo Boo both do a short HAPPY HUMPDAY dance before the presentation!

people have always been fascinated by the huge migrating flocks of Cranes. it was believed that Cranes carried small birds on their backs during their migratory travels over large bodies of water. it was believed the reason the Crances did this was that they enjoyed listening to the songs of the small birds.. this belief was held by the egyptians, the bedouins and the the Crow indians.the arawak indians pf venezuela believed tobacco was brought to them by a hummingbird who stole it from triniada and rode on the back of a crane to bring it to south america. it was believed that cranes swallowed stones to keep the wind from blowing them off course during their long migratory flights. upon arrival they would expel the stones. the stones were said to hold magical powers. if one held the stone they would find gold. also the stones were said to warn of impending danger.

The Whooping Crane is named for its call, which can be heard over great distances thanks to the bird’s extra-long trachea, which coils around its breastbone twice like a French horn. Like other cranes, the Whooper is noisy; the word “crane” comes from the Anglo-Saxon "cran," which means "to cry out."
The tallest flying bird in North America, Whooping Cranes measure up to five feet tall with a seven-to eight-foot wingspan. The species also has another distinction: It is the rarest crane in the world. Several decades ago, it almost disappeared forever due to habitat loss and hunting.
Still extremely rare, Whooping Cranes are on the WatchList and protected as an endangered species. Sadly, up to one-quarter of all Whoopers are shot and killed.
Whooping Cranes are one of our country’s most majestic birds—and also one of our most endangered. Though the species once ranged throughout the Great Plains and Gulf Coast regions, the Whooping Crane population was decimated by hunting and habitat loss, and only 16 birds remained in 1941.
Today, a major captive-breeding effort has helped the population rebound to nearly 600 individuals. But these birds are still under threat. A mated pair of Whooping Cranes was recently shot at a crawfish pond in Louisiana. Sadly, both have died from their injuries. Still worse, this is not unusual: Nearly one-quarter of all Whooping Crane deaths are caused by illegal shooting.
Whooping Cranes deserve the full protection of the law.

Boo Boo places an ice bag on Coris head before todays speech. they both had a little too much st paddys day celebrating yesterday.

a very common superstition was that storks deliver newborn babies. this superstition was found amend europeans and even the sioux indians. the great flocks of storks flying north from africa at the beginning os spring created an association in peoples minds with fertility. also the considerable size of the stork could easily carry a newborn human. it was also believed that the storks caring nature extended to its own parents as well and in ancient rome there was a law requiring citizens to care for their elders known as lex ciconia, or stork law. it was believed that storks lived to a ripe old age and in china, storks were believed to carry the human soul, particularly those of brave soldiers up to heaven. in greece if a woman befriended a stork it would one day return and lay a jewel at her feet in token of affection. storks were thought to be very strict with their own babies and would often peck them until they bled but then could miraculously heal them instantly with a lick of their tongue. this is why the reddish pink marks found on newborns eyelids is often referred to as stork bites. farmers in europe felt storks brought good luck and would place platforms on their roofs for storks to nest. if the storks left the farmers roof it was considered bad luck. the stork represent duty and gratitude.

Boo Boo and Cori have kegs of green beer and start filling up frosty mugs and handing them out to all their friends.

St. Patrick's day is a feast celebrated yearly on March 17 (except when it lands on Catholic spiritual holidays). St. Patrick, aka St. Paddy, is the patron saint of Ireland and is celebrated by wearing green, drinking green beer (usually Guiness, but sometimes substituted with Irish whiskey or Baileys Irish cream), and eating Irish food. Traditionally, those who don't wear green are pinched on St. Patrick's day.

each petal on the shamrock
brings good luck your way
good health good luck and happiness

never iron a four leaf clover
your don't want to press your luck

There is nothing on it right now, but she is turning into her art website. Hopefully it will look way better then her current website! Right now mommy is working on three paintings.

Cori starts playing an irish tune on her fiddle as Boo Boo , wearing heavy boots, does some Irish step dancing before Cori begins her speech for today:

An irish saint, similar to /saint francis of assisi called /st Kevin(498-618) was said to prefer the company of animals over humans and was said to have a mystical command over them. once when he was praying during lent, a blackbird landed on his outstretched hand and laid an egg there. St Kevin then remained perfectly still until the egg had hatched- an illustration of the saints virtuous patience and gentleness.
there is a saying from the county meath in ireland "when the blackbird sings before christmas, she will cry before Candlemas" This meant if the blackbird started signing before its usual time of early to mid february a cold spell will occur before february 2, when the rite of candlemas is observed. in germany it was thought a blackbird kept caged in a house offered protection against lightning.

  Hi Chirpy
Boo Boo tosses 4 leaf clovers out to the bird e club audience before Cori begins her speech.

What is “The Ideas of March?” The Romans called March 15th “The Ides of March.” Originally, the “ideas” referred to the full moon.Ides were days of settling debts

What does “Beware the Ides of March” mean? It means, be aware of impending danger.

The saying, “Beware the Ides of March” came from William Shakespeare’s play, Julius Caesar. In the play, a soothsayer says “Beware the Ideas of March” to Julius Caesar to warn him that this was to be his assassination day.

Julius Caesar was assassinated on March 15, 44BC by Roman Senators who were concerned that he had too much power. Rome was a Republic and these Roman Senators did not want anyone to disrupt what they had built. However, after Julius Caesar’s assassination, Rome was saddened by his death. The senators were banished and the republic was never restored to its previous glory.

“Beware the Ides of March” is now a proverb, superstition and a phrase that warns of impending danger and unfortunate events.

A proverb is a saying that contains advice or accepted truth. They are passed down through generations. Common proverbs are; “Look before you leap,” “don’t count your chickens before they hatch” and “don’t put all your eggs in one basket.”

A superstition is a belief that a particular thing, event or circumstance holds some kind of significance that something going to happen (bad or good) even though it’s not based on knowledge or reason. This belief can be based on fear, ignorance, trust in magic, coincidence, or a prior experience with a similar situation. Some common superstitions are; breaking a mirror can cause bad luck, finding a 4-leaf clover can bring good luck, stepping on a crack in the sidewalk can “break your mother’s back” or cause bad luck, the number 13 can bring you bad luck, and finding a string on your person means your going to get a letter.

thankyou for the compliment on my picture. you should see how the wind blows my frills ion my dress when i am standing in the crows nest on the pirate ship Pearl. here is Coris blog for running for BOTM. hope you can help by voting for her.

BOTH CORI AND BOO BOO THANK ALL THE BIRDS FOR THEIR CONTINUED SUPPORT FOR CORIS BOTM CAMPAIGN.
BIRDS WILL BAND TOGETHER TO SING TRIUMPHANT SONGS WHEN THEY HAVE WON A TERRITORIAL BATTLE. THE BOUBOU WILL WILL PERFORM DISTINCTIVE DUETS TO SIGNAL THEIR VICTORIES.. THIS ALERTS OTHER BOUBOUS THAT THE COAST IS NOW CLEAR AND ALSO WARNS OFF OTHER POTENTIAL INVADERS.
SCIENTISTS HAVE FOUND THAT BIRDS WITH A LARGE .SONG REPERTOIRE ALSO HAVE LARGER SPLEENS, WHICH IN TURN IS LINKED TO THE QUALITY OF THE BIRDS IMMUNE SYSTEM. FEMALE BIRDS LIKE THE GREAT REED WARBLER MATING WITH THE MALES WITH THE BIGGEST SONG BOOK HAVE OFF SPRING THAT TEND TO SURVIVE LONGER
MALE CANARAIES CAN DRIVE FEMALES WILD WITH THEIR SPECTACULAR RAPID FIRE TRILLING VIBRATING NOTES 16 TIMES PER SECOND. FEMALES HEARING THIS IMMEDIATELY ADOPT THE POSTURE THAT SIGNALS THEY ARE READY FOR SEX.
THE MALE WOODPECKER DOESNT SING WELL SO INSTEAD HE USES HIS HEAD DRUMMING ON ANY SURFACE THAT RESONATES AND WILL ATTRACT MATES.
THE BLUEJAY IMMIATES THE RED TAILED HAWK PERFECTLY TO WARN OTHERS ITS AROUND
THE BURROWING OWL MAKES THE EXACT SOUND OF A RATTLESNAKE TO WARN PREDATORS AWAY FROM ITS UNDERGROUND BURROW.
THE MALE RUFFED GROUSE MOUNTS A FALLEN LOG OR LARGE ROCK AND BEATS HIS WINGS AGAINST THE AIR CREATING A DRUMMING SOUND TO ATTRACT MATES.

How are u sweetie? Well, it looks like luck is on our side today! Our county was supposed to get 10 plus inches of snow from late Saturday night thru Monday 1pm, but it's been down graded to 3-6 inches...tho it's snowing pretty good right now! Luckily, it looks like the g-kids will have a 2 he delay instead of A cancellation...all snow days have been used & any more missed days must be made up at end of school year.
Today, we will finish the Parrot's Bill of Rights.

A PARROT'S BILL OF RIGHTS (Pt 2)
7. PLEASE DON'T PUNISH ME.
Just as I don't always understand ur peculiarities, u may not understand mine. I don't TRY to get in trouble - remember...a house is NOT the jungle. If I DO screw up, don't yell at me & NEVER hit me! I have very sensitive ears & I may never trust u again if u strike me. Hands are sometimes scary things to us. (Why in the world would u not be zygodactylous like us?) Even more importantly, we don't learn by punishment. We are gentle creatures who only strike back to protect ourselves; we learn through patience & love.
8. SPEAK MY "LANGUAGE".
I know u get upset with me when I knock over my water bowl, throw food, scream or pluck my feathers. I don't do these to annoy u - I am probably trying to tell u something (perhaps that I am hurting, lonely, or sad). Learn to speak MY (body) language. Remember that I, alone of all creatures on this planet, learn to speak yours!
9. SEE ME AS AN INDIVIDUAL.
I am a unique & feeling being. No two of us are alike. Please don't be disappointed in me if I don't talk like u wanted, or can't do the tricks that ur friend's parrot can do. But if u pay close attention to me (& I always empathize with u, whether u know it or not), I will show u a unique being who will give u so much more than talking & playing. Give me a chance to show u who I am; I think you'll find the effort worth it. And remember - I am NOT an ornament; I DO NOT enhance ANY living room decor. And I am NOT a status symbol - if u use me as such, I might nip at your turned-up nose!
10. SHARE YOUR LOVE WITH ME.
Above all, PLEASE remember that u are my Special Person. I put all my trust & faith in u. We parrots are used to being monogamous (no bar-hopping for us!) So please don't go away for long periods or give me away. That would be a sadness from which I may never recover.
If that seems to be asking a lot, remember - u could have learned about my needs BEFORE bringing me home. Even having a baby or taking a new job isn't a fair reason - you made a commitment to me FIRST! And if u think that u must leave me because u might die, provide for me forever after u leave. I may live to a ripe old age but I can't provide for myself. Remember I'm in a small cage amongst people who are NOT of my blood.
AWE SHUCKS! Blog too long & cut off! Will finish last part tomorrow & continue with first aid - poisoning & toxicity. See u tomorrow sweetie!
Love & a vote
Tia

  Hi Chirpy
How are u sweetie? Congrats to my BBFF Snowflake for winning BOTM! She will be an amazing queen!

A PARROT'S BILL OF RIGHTS. by Stewart A. Metz, M.D.
1. GET TO KNOW ABOUT PARROTS BEFORE U BRING ME HOME.
I am NOT a domesticated pet like a dog or cat. I still have the spirit of the jungle in me. I have special needs, which u may find it hard to fill. Please don't learn these too late for my well-being. And please don't acquire one of my cousins wild from the jungle...it will jeopardize his survival & well-being, & that won't be a party for u either!
2. GIVE ME THE LARGEST HOME POSSIBLE.
I am used to flying through rainforests or savannahs. I have given up this great gift for ur pleasure. At the very least, give me enough room to flap my wings & exercise. And o need toys for my amusement & wood to chew...otherwise, I might confuse ur home with the forest & its trees.
3. GIVE ME A NUTRITIOUS DIET.
I need a wide variety of fresh & nutritious foods, even if they take time to prepare. I cannot survive on seed alone. Take time to learn what mynneeds are.
4. LET ME HAVE A "SOCIAL LIFE".
I am a gregarious flock animal...but I am NOT one of u. I need lots of socialization to learn how to act with u, & with my siblings. I also need to have adequate quality time with u every day - no matter what it schedule or other needs are. I am a living, feeling creature. Above all, I need to be able to have complete trust in u, & count on ur predictability in looking after me - EVERY DAY.
5. LET ME BE CLEAN.
I may like to drop food or even throw it, but I need meticulous cleanliness to be healthy. My skin itches without frequent showers, the barbs of my feathers won't seal if they become oily & worst of all, I may become ill if my food & water is not always sanitary.
6. I NEED MY OWN DOCTOR.
U may not understand my physiology & therefore u may not recognize it early on when I get sick. And it may be too late when u do, because I hide my illnesses (remember what I said about my being an animal of the jungle, where there are lots of predictors). And I need an avian vet - a specialisy (no HMOs for me please). If u can't afford one, perhaps u shouldn't have taken me home.
I will send u the 2nd part tomorrow. Have a great day sweetie!

How are u sweetie? WOW, did this month fly by! I can't believe this is my last day as ur BOTM queen! But I'm very happy & excited for my dear friend Snowflake, who will be my successor! First thing tomorrow, I will hand over the castle keys, & take her by the wing & give her the grand tour of her new home for the month!
Tomorrow, I will send u the first part of A Parrot's Bill of Rights. It's like a parrot owners manual, short version, with a bit of comic relief added in! Today, I will finish A Parrot's Prayer. I have to warn u, the second part is as heartbreaking as the first, & will leave a lump in ur throat.

A PARROT'S PRAYER (cont.)
LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER...
For all the macaws, cockatoos, amazons & conures that are stripped of their vocal cords for screaming; their sensitive beaks cut back to prevent biting.
LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER...
For all birds that end up for sale in pet shops or breeders like used merchandise, unwanted & frightened in strange surroundings with nothing more than the familiar sight of bars on a cage.
LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER...
For all the neglected birds that are sick with infections from filthy conditions & malnourishment that may never recover & know what it is like to feel healthy & be playful.
LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER...
For all the misconceived parrots who were beaten, stabbed, blinded & burned for just being a parrot.
LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER...
For every african grey, cockatoo & macaw that punishes itself by maiming their bodies & plucking their feathers & for those who have lost all spirit of life & sway their head low from side to side slowly into insanity.
LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER...
We ask humbly of you dear Lord to look upon all of your magnificent feather creations, protect them from evil & harm caused by man & to bring forth an awakening in the human heart & make it a kinder, gentler world for all captive birds.
AMEN.
Written by Sally Brooks

Every time mom reads this, her eyes fill with tears & she holds me a little closer & gives me extra kisses. As much as she loves me, she just can't imagine people being so despicable to do these things to these wondrous & magnificent creatures! I know that everybirdy's moms feel the same way...especially the moms that have rehomed birds and rescues, who have given a home to broken & battered birds...& God bless each one of you! I hope u have a great day, & I'll see u tomorrow sweetie!

Mom would like to thank everybirdy for their encouragement & support for her quitting smoking...it really means a lot to her! She has been "quitting" for the last year or so with not much success! She is sooooo happy that the Lord took away withdrawal torture! Mom could never quit before coz she could never make it past the 3 weeks of torturous withdrawal symptoms. But this time she had no physical withdrawal at all...which is truly a blessing from God!

How are u sweetie! I meant to be back sooner, but since mom is feeling a lot better, she has been busy! Plus giving me attention is a full time job! It's been over a month & mom still isn't smoking! That's another reason mom hasn't been online much...it's an activity she associates with smoking & the only time she craves one, but it's starting to go away! There is still a lot of first aid info I would like to go over, but first, we would like to share a couple things that are in one of mom's books. Both are very thought provoking & also very true. I will start with A PARROT'S PRAYER, (which is incredibly sad & infuriating!, then A PARROT'S BILL OF RIGHTS. Each should take 2 days.

A PARROT'S PRAYER
LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER...
For all the wild caught parrots so savagely netted & swept away from their families while their babies, dumped into burlap sacks, cried out in terror.
LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER...
For all the exotic birds that witnessed the destruction of all the blessed trees & fled fires in fear from man's thirst to dominate, stripping the land of all its inhabitants, leaving nothing but bare ground behind.
LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER...
For all the parrots that struggled through the capture, but died merciless in transport from the stress of overcrowded, barbaric, confinements & inconceivable horror.
LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER...
For all the survivors that made it into captivity but exist in a nightmare of confinement unable to use their God given wings of flight as they once remembered.
LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER...
For all the baby birds bred in captivity whose crops burned or have died needlessly from harshness of human hands.
LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER...
For all captive birds that have been erased from their owner's consciousness & are abandoned to a lifeless existence with only a distant memory of what it was like to hear a gentle voice from someone that used to care.
LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER...
For all those helpless creatures who don't know what it's like to live life as a bird or even to feel the breeze or sunlight but are doomed to darkness in closets or garages, trapped inside covered cages or shackled.

Heartbreaking, isn't it? I will finish the Parrot's Prayer tomorrow. Have a great day sweetie!

Thanks for liking the pics. We joined the pirate adventure this year. Mom made the pic of us in front of the POTC flag and aunt Robin (SamIam's mom) made the one of us in the boat.

Sorry we took too long to come back with the update blogging. The parront is working from 5am to 1:30 PM. She is doing 40 hours a week. She needs the money.She is very busy and does not have much free time available.

The weather is getting warm here. It has been raining too.

We spent Valentine Day in cage confinement.

The parront has an appointment on Monday to get her first shot in her back. She has to get 3. They cant do all 3 in the same day because it is too much.

She has her hopes up those injection will ease her back pain.

This is all for now. We will be back again when we have a chance.

See you soon

Have a greyt Friday
be a good birdie
beaky kisses and V4U

  Hello Chirpy
Today I am featuring Tweety.

Him and his friends built an awesome sports complex at the kissing booth. There was a basket ball court, football field,
baseball field, game room, Olympic sized swimming pool, tennis court, boxing gym, etc.

We played lots of game and had serious competitions,
(The boys against the girls). We played lots of board games also. We also had a cross-country skiing contest.

We had lots of yummy health food. We ate lots of apple chips and nuts for snacks. The fresh fruit drinks were the best.

At night would play games in the game room and watch cartoon on the big screen TV. One night the boys were playing at the dart board and Tweety walked in front of it, the dart went through his tail feathers and pinned him to wall next to the dart board. Hee hee!!!
No harm done...

The funniest time is when Ms. Chirps coached the girls football team. She cut the strings off the boys football pants and tied their shoe strings together so the girls could win and we did !!! Heehee...
Tweety says his favorite thing that we did was play basketball and the boys beat the girls...And hanging out with his BC friends...
Fun, love and memories at the kissing booth...

Thank you for your votes. Much love to you all.

  Hi Chirpy
Today is Jedi's KB picture.

It was all about riding with the wind blowing through our feathers on our hogs. Jedi led us all over the BC grounds on his Flathead.

Every night we would pull in before the sun went down and gather around our outdoor stage and rock out to Pearl and Silvers concerts.
We would party all night long and camp out next to our Harley Hogs.

We also had mischief night and there was lots of mischief !!! The General store ran out of that stuff our humans call Potty Paper. And we also put up a haunted house and told each other scary stories around the campfire.

Of course there was lots of good food, and we had a Northern Powwow our last two days at our Kissing Booth biker camp.

We had lots of fun...We were bad to the bone !!!
Thank you for your daily votes...
Much love to you, Snowflake. (BB)

  Hi Chirpy
How are u sweetie? What a month I'm having! I'M THE QUEEN, but I've been banished to the dungeon (my cage is in sissy's basement)! Mom had been sick, so I don't understand why she went on vacation for 4 days to a place called a hospital! She won a trip there coz she had something called pneumonia. It seems to have been a good place for her to go coz she doesn't look like a walking zombie anymore! Another good thing that came out of her trip was that she quit smoking! It's been 3 weeks since she smoked one of those nasty things! Mom always smoked outside, & never around me, but she always smelled of those yucky things. Mom is happy, she tried to quit dozens of times but was never successful. Mom was sooooo sick, that she didn't even suffer withdrawal! Being sick gave mom a wake-up call...she struggled to breathe the last couple weeks & that scared the crap out of her! Also, not buying any cigarettes these last 3 weeks, she's had a bunch of extra money (to spend on ME of course! In the next couple days, I will resume birdie first aid blogs. I still have lots of first aid info that I want to share with all my birdie friends!

Oh, I wanted to share with all my dear friends. .my sissy Amanda's biopsy came back NORMAL!!!! We are sooooo relieved & so thankful to God that sissy doesn't have cancer! Mom was having a hard trying to pretend everything was fine so that sissy wouldn't be quite as scared! The ENT Doc seems to think it may caused by something viral. Sissy isn't going to bother pursuing it right now, but sometime in the future! First aid blogs will start back up again in the next day or 2, mom is trying to get things in order after being in the hospital. See u soon sweetie!
Love & a vote

  Hi Chirpy
Today is Moggie's KB picture.

There was lots of 4th of July fireworks.
We also had lots of ethnic food nights, Italian, Chinese, Mexican, etc. We had chili every way you could think of. Heartburn was had by many birds. We had an awesome time.

Hummmmm, I think Cookie pressed that big red "do not press button" in Ms. BBs shuttle when we were organizing for a field trip somewhere. Heehee.

And I really don’t have to say it do I? IT RAINED ON US!!!

Thank you for your votes.
Much love to you Snowflake...(Ms BB)

  Hello Chirpy
Today is Pearl and Silvers KB picture.

BB was always there to help man (bird the booth) hee hee.
It was all about good food and music. P&S would arrive early in the morning, start BBs coffee and drop off a list of three songs with a theme.

If birds could figure it out they were invited to sing another song within the theme. In the evening P&S returned to give a concert playing their guitars.

Theme's ranged from songs with a month in the title, a color, an animal, a state, etc. If the song featured a female singer Pearl (since he's the one with a girls name) sang the lead vocals.

Memories and fun at the kissing booth...

  Hi Chirpy
Today is Mr. Sky's picture.

Mr. Sky has the highest count ever at the KB at 807. He was in the booth 12- 24- 2013 to 1-7-2014. Ms BB was with him a lot while he was there (what a shock that was, haa,haa,haa.).

Mr. Sky has a lot of adopted kids. A lot of little birds look up to him, pun intended.
He's a big guy with a big heart. He goes out to schools for show & tells with Mama Deb.

Ms Chirps tried to keep Mr. Sky & Ms. BB apart by spying on them all the time. She even stowed away in the horse drawn sled when they went for a ride and ran out of hay for the horses.

There was lots of good food there. Sante Bird was even there for a couple days.
We had lots of fun. Thank you for your votes.
Much love to you
Love Snowflake. (Ms BB)

  Hello
My name is Snowflake. I'm running for March BOTM. Please support me and vote for me.
I will be posting daily blogs about the BC Kissing Booth that Ms BB runs. Everyday there will be a different bird and his picture with a short description of what went on.

Today is Stormy's KB pit at the Yellowstone park.

We got to ride the white water in the rafts and go exploring. We camped out and slept on buffalo robes.
We even got to go participate in a rodeo & ride horses. We had a northern protocol powwow with lots of fry bread.

The girls and boys made moccasins and made their own dance regalia. Ms Chirps and I taught them, hee hee.
The band of brothers sang at the drum. We had lots of fun.
Fun, dancing, exploring, bulls riding and romance at the KB.
Thank you for your votes. Much love to you.
Love Snowflake... (Ms. BB)

  Hi Chirpy
DAY 31
How are u sweetie? It's been a rough week here! Sissy had her biopsy on Wednesday. She's a little bit sore, but not too bad. The Dr said she would have sissy's results in a week. Mom has a horrible case of bronchitis & hasn't been out of bed since last Saturday, except for a Drs appt on Tuesday & chest x-ray on Thursday! Mom is going to have to make another appt. She's finished her antibiotic & is feeling worse instead of feeling better.

I want to thank each one of my dear friends for all ur support during my campaign, it has really meant a lot to me! I want to thank everybirdy that put my name & page # on their name tags...that really meant a lot to me! I would like to give sweet Momma Deb a special thanks for all the awesome campaign pics that she made for me! If it wasn't for Momma Deb, I wouldn't have had any pics!

Mom ALMOST forgot my Hatchday, good thing sissy remembered! I'm sure it's the fever & lack of sleep!

There is still lots & lots of first aid info that I want to share with u! I will continue doing blogs! It should take up all of Feb, maybe March too! Mom is going to get this blog out, then spoil me the rest of my Hatchday! She needs to start treating me like a queen!
Love & a vote
Tia
Has anyone heard from JennyLynn? Her page is missing.
