  Heya, Willie!
YIKES! 23 cages of bunnies? Wow. That is a whole lot of bunny! Mom says that there are bunnies in Grandpa's back yard. She looks for them when she takes the garbage out. She will say hi, and they don't run off, which is cool. They sure are pretty with all those different colors in their fur.

Not a lot going on here today. Nice relaxing day with Mom, getting a lot of head scritches and neck and cheek and chin ones, too. Getting in some new feathers, so needless to say, Mom was full of what she calls bird dust. Then I took a huge bath and boy, did that feel good!

Gorgeous here today-- 81, with no humidity or dew points. Sunny, with a nice breeze. Patio doors were open all day to get the fresh air in. Gotta say that it was a perfect day!

Wing hugs coming atcha!

  Hi Willie
This morning was a bright sunny warm morning after we lost our power again last night, with the highs for the day of 83 and the low of 72,it's 84 right now.Mom got us up and fed us,cleaned our cages and vacuumed our room and the rest of the house.Then she got a phone call from someone who wanted their cockatiels wings clipped.They came down around 11:00am and Mom got the feisty tiel and got bit to shreds but she did get the flights clipped. They will be back again in October before they leave to go to Florida.They had wanted to check us all out and when they went into the Bird Room,Kallie was out and flew at one of the ladies right in the face!Mom was mortified but the lady was all right.They all just couldn't believe all the ribbons we got for our shows and how old we all were!They wanted Mom to give them a demonstration of how our harnesses worked and Mom had Dixie show them how it worked and they then wanted to see our car seat so Mom showed them what that was and they all wanted one for their tiel.They just didn't know how many things there were for us fids out there.The 2 ladies and the one guy that came told Mom that their Tiel flew off from them and was out in the wild for four days!Mom told them they were lucky to get him back at all!They had gone to a vet in Florida who clipped the tiel's wings and they did a chop job on him and he still flew away,that vet never clipped the proper flights and clipped the covert feathers also!When Mom clipped the tiel's feathers she showed them how he glides easily to the ground and doesn't get hurt by dropping like a rock from a bad clipping.
Mom is home with us for the day and hopefully now it will a quiet uneventful afternoon til dad comes home.Mom ordered our fold'n'go travel cages this morning and they should be here within 5-9 days!
Skin bro came over tonight while Mom was in the shower and he got Candida out,she got really scared and flew and lost all her tail feathers,all twelve of them,now she looks like a duck!
We finally all got to go out and enjoy the last of the hot sunshine at dinnertime with Mom and dad.We all even got soaked to the skin as we haven't been able to go outside for nearly a week now.
Thank you for liking our coke can pics!Chipper did that one for me!

  Hello Willie~
I hope you are having a great day! I certainly didn't get many blogs done this weekend at all! It was all mom's fault. She was tired and every time she sat down to type for me she would start to fall asleep! I didn't want any bird to get some weird looking blog because she was too tired to type! She can't spell well on a good day so you can imagine what it would be like if she was sleepy!
Only one more night and then we have our weekend! Can't wait! Dad should be home tomorrow sometime. He said he did his laundry out on the road so he wouldn't have to spend his days off washing clothes! I am betting he will still have a load or two with the bedding and other stuff from the truck.
It has really cooled off here and I am one happy bird!! I am still molting a bit and mom is wondering if the heat makes it worse. She tried to find out but couldn't find a good answer. I'm still taking showers and keeping myself comfortable! I think it's nearly done now! I won't have to worry about it for a while!
When mom went on break this morning a 6am she saw a hawk circling the wetlands behind the store. There were a group of crows out there trying to get the hawk to leave! Mom was amazed that he didn't attack one of them because he certainly was a lot bigger! I guess crows know no fear!hahahahahaha
They finally gave up and left and the hawk kept circling!
I hope your day is just fabulous! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Willie
What Can We Do for Birds in Summer?
In some parts of the country, summer can be quite dry. With global climate change, droughts are becoming more frequent. Natural sources of water have dried up. Creeks run low or underground. Rain is scarce, and temporary puddles are gone. And birds need water – to bathe and to drink.

A clean bath with sloping sides is a great way to start. Be sure to hose it out every day, otherwise the water will become stale and dirty, and mosquitoes may lay their eggs. OK, it's a fact: birds poop in their baths. And a robin taking a bath can splash out half the water in one go. On a hot day, you may find yourself on hose patrol, but the birds will love you for it.

If you have the time and inclination, go one step further and offer two or three birdbaths. Larger birds need deeper baths, which might pose a danger to small birds. An inch of water – or even less – is ideal for small birds. A wide, shallow birdbath that deepens a bit in the center will suit a broad range of birds. And some birds like to bathe closer to the ground. Certain shy birds will visit a birdbath set flat on the ground, but may shun a birdbath on a pedestal. (Just keep an eye out for cats! When a bird is refreshing itself in the spa, it's an easy mark for a cat.)

Want to really spoil your birds? Put out a mister, and watch the smaller birds – including chickadees, nuthatches, warblers, and especially hummingbirds – flit in and out.

Thanks for the offer to nominate me for BOTM but I really am not interested at this time. Thanks for thinking of me!
That fruit that your mom got today sounds interesting.Did you like it?
My mom has her flowers on the patio off of the laundry room and she used the watering can for that. Kind of a pain in the tail feathers!
We have that little raised garden this year and everything is doing well.
Hope your mom had a nice pool day and hope your day was awesome buddy!

This morning was a bright sunny warm day, the highs of 84,the lows of 69,we awoke with a beautiful day with very little humidity so Mom decided to do laundry and did two loads and the sheets and she got it all hung out on the line,then she made sandwiches for my dad for the work week,and then each one of us got our nails done while Dixie and Kallie got their beaks done out on the deck.Dad is starting our BBQ and Mom got some smoked turkey sausage,pork tenderloin and if the skin sibs come she'll put on hamburgers and hot dogs.The traffic is really brutal here now and even the expressways are all jammed up and the backup going off the Bridges are over ten miles long now.I guess everyone wanted to leave here early to avoid the Bridge back up.
Mom and dad had their BBQ but we weren't allowed to come outside as it was still way too hot and the humidity was back again.The skin sibs never made it down,skin sis didn't have a ride and skin bro didn't want to deal with the Bridge backup.Mom and dad brought the laundry in and it dried really well and Mom put the fresh line dried sheets on the bed.As soon as the sun goes down and there's shade on the deck we'll be going out for a little while.It was a nice quiet day here and we all enjoyed every minute of it!

  Heya, Willie!
Oh, now I love all that lovely food! Silly Falco for not wanting to try it! I am so glad that my Mom gave me good veggies and fruit from little on. Of course, I turn up my beak at anything that is supposed to be for a bird. I want what she eats! Though she better not try to eat my watermelon seeds!

Wow, we had some icky clouds come in here, and some rain, lightening and thunder. But it seems to have stayed south of us--we sure could have used more rain, that is for sure. Mom turned on the a/c this morning and it is still going--even though we have a good breeze with all that wind gusting around. Hopefully things will cool down like they said. It was 92 here today! We were so lucky to not get the golf ball and baseball sized hail that is falling to our south. Ugh!

Just a lovely day with Mom, and enjoying my watermelon and seeds.

Wing hugs coming your way!

  Hello Willie~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! There was another fire down on South Hill overnight. You couldn't smell anything here but mom could smell it when she came out of work. It was a junk yard with old cars that burned up and boy did it stink! Mom was a bit worried but realized half way home that she couldn't smell it anymore. She only left the bedroom window open a bit since Merlin keeps getting up there and howling. She can't leave it open too much unless someone is home since Merlin might jump against it and fall out! That is a dumb thing I would expect from him!
I hope your day is just wonderful!

  Hi Willie
We often call the solstice "Midsummer," but it's actually only the beginning. August 1st is Midsummer. the birds have stopped singing. No longer are we awakened at 4AM by the dawn chorus.

Many birds – wrens, robins, and others – may raise more than one brood in a breeding season. Depending on what part of the country you call home, your local birds may still be feeding fledglings, or those young ones might be completely independent by now. This is the time of year when a lot of birds begin to look shabby. Crows are missing feathers, and male Mallards look almost like females. [Listen to Male Mallards Disappear] Northern Cardinals and Blue Jays can be positively bald! It's their annual molt. Or one of two or more for some birds. American Goldfinches lose their bright summer colors in order to blend in with their dull winter surroundings. They'll molt again in the spring to show off those bright yellow feathers.

Some birds even lose the ability to sing after the breeding season is over. The part of the brain used for singing shrinks to lighten the bird's body mass. During the non-breeding seasons of fall and winter, most birds don’t need to sing to establish a breeding territory and attract a mate. Their lighter body mass makes them more agile and thus more likely to evade a predator during their winter foraging.

  Heya, Willie!
Glad to hear all is good, and that your Mom is at the pool enjoying the weather!!

Mom did it! SHE DID IT! She found me watermelon with seeds! It was by accident too--she goes to this neat store with lots of organic stuff, and other specialty items plus regular groceries. She remembered Boo Boo telling me to check places that sell organic stuff, and she saw they had organic mini-watermelons. Well, they HAD SEEDS! She was so happy she finally found one for me! They are not ready here yet at the farmer's market but she knows that at least she might find them at this store. And she cut it up for me and gave me some with the seeds and I chomped those down in no time. Isn't she the best Mom?

And we went to the Farmer's Market. It was warm, sunny but a bit windy at times. I got to see Paula, and Jerry and Chris, and I even flirted with Chris. He thinks I am pretty cool, and he calls me "Handsome". I like that! I flirted with Paula, too, of course. It was really busy there so we didn't get to visit too long. Then we picked up corn on the cob, and it took longer than I wanted, so I hollered "Vite, vite, vite!" That is French for fast, and it is pronounced 'veet' like 'beet'. Mom taught me that a long time ago, but I haven't said it much. She told me to hold my feathers, and so I said "Ya-Ya-Ya". She laughed at that, alot. Stopped and got some eggs, and I said something that startled the farmer--but he thought I was the coolest thing ever! Of course! Hehe!

Hope we don't get the bad storms they are talking about for tomorrow. We need rain, but not the kind that pounds the ground. Nice gentle one would be lovely. Supposed to be humid, too.

Wing hugs coming atcha!

This morning was another bright sunny hot summer morning with the highs for the day of 87 the lows of 66.Right now its 86.Mom got us all up and fed and cleaned our cages and swept our room again as it's still too hot to use the vacuum.Then she and dad took off for Ocean Lot to pick up bird seed for the wild birds.The traffic was really brutal out there and it was bumper to bumper traffic and you couldn't go more than 10-20mph along all the roads here.They were headed off to Falmouth.It took them over an hour just to get to Falmouth from here which really only takes about 25 minutes at the most.It looks like every state in the world is here today!After they got through picking up eight 20lb bags of wild bird seed,(2 were for Nana)they went to Dollar Tree to get popcorn for Dad,he was all out.When they got there the popcorn was all wiped out and there were hardly any left so Mom bought 7 boxes of that.They then got back in the car and back into traffic to go to Nana's house so they could drop off the bird seed to her and my dad filled the bird feeder for her and hung it out back for her so her birds can come and get something to eat!Then they got back into the traffic and went home.They left at 10:00am and didn't return til 1:30pm.Pretty sad when two stops takes you nearly all day! Mom has one more thing to do before she can stay home for the rest of the day with us.
Mom and dad finally came home and we all got to go outside and join them for dinner.Dad ordered a Hawaiian Pizza and Mom got a veggie melt sub!Dad kept sharing us with his pizza crust!We had a good time watching the birds come and go and people driving by!Now we are waiting for Mom to come and snuggle with us!

mom and several others worked their bums off trying to save the pgh aviary when the city was planning to shut it down. she and another girl went to all the city council meeting met with all kinds of lawyers contacted the news stations, were written up in the newspapers stood outside the courthouse handing out fliers they made prior explaining what was going on and asking for support, got petitions signed met with politicians. they worked and worked and worked. they even got barbara baker involved from the pgh zoo. finally it all paid off. then barbara baker put her husband in charge of the aviary and told us that there wasn't any room for us.mom had been in charge of adopt a bird and had gotten thousands of dollars in donations from that and met influential people from that who helped support the aviary. mom held big receptions for these people. anyway the one woman mom worked her bum off with had been named pgh woman of the year for all the hard aviary work. mom never got any mention but was happy she kept the aviary open. it has taken the aviary many years to recover from what happened. now mom keeps reading over and over about this lawyer called fry who says he single handed kept the aviary from closing. mom never even heard of this guy. they have just named a handicapped eagle after him. how could mom have been so involved in everything going on to keep the aviary open and never met a lawyer called fry? as you can see even after 25 years mom has deep wounds and emotions from this as do others who also were involved with the fight and it was a fight believe me.

This morning was another bright hot sunny morning with the highs for the day being 86,the lows of 67.At 7:00pm its 81 degrees.Mom got all the trash collected and the recyclables put in her car then she got us all up,cleaned our cages and fed us and swept our room,then took our trash out to the car.Then she got Dixie all harnessed up and got him in the car seat and then Mom and Dixie took off for Nana's.Once there,Dixie got settled in his cage in the sun room and Nana gave him a good breakfast with scrambled eggs.Mom loaded Nana's trash and recycs in Nana's car along with all of our trash and they took off for the dump,from there they went to the Thrift store to find a baby gate for Bella,so Nana can let her out more often,but there was none there,from there they went to the bank,then Roche Bros. grocery store where both Mom and Nana got a few things,then to Stop&Shop where they got a few more things that were needed and on sale.They went back to Nana's house and had a nice lunch of tuna and salad that Nana made,with Mom's chocolate zucchini bread and rum raisin ice cream for dessert.Dixie and our cousins all got some fresh fruit of apples,oranges and cranberries for our snack.Then Mom and Nana were trying to figure out how to untangle an old hockey net of skin bro's to use for a barrier for Bella but after they both worked on that and got it to work out a little,Nana decided not to use it as Bella may have gotten herself caught in the netting part of it.It was 4:00pm and Nana sent Mom and Dixie home before the traffic got too bad.When Mom finally got home,she unpacked the car and put everything away,then went to clean our cages and give us our snacks as our Dad just got home himself. Mom then made Dad leftover elbow macaroni with butter and cinnamon and sugar for dinner.They sat on the deck and we were able to all go out and join them and enjoy the last of the sunshine and watch all the wild birds coming and going from our yard.We got to stay outside and enjoy the view til around 7:00pm.
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft birdie kisses!Loving you always and forever,sweet Willie,Love Peepers

  Heya, Willie!
Getting squawkatiels again, so will drop off the c/p note. If I stay on page too long....I get the page not found error!

Mom and Kim did their weekly outing today--and after a wrong turn, and having a young red fox run in front of the car (Mom slammed on the brakes so she would not hit it!), they made it to the General Store/railroad salvage place. Got some good deals on food with long expiration dates (not always the case there). Then it was off to have lunch in Port Washington--fish fry! The original restaurant closed 12 years ago, and now they have a coffee shop. It was so gorgeous to see the lake and all the boats in the marina. Would have been a lovely day to sail on the lake, too. Then it was off to Meijer's for food. No watermelon with seeds though. And the watermelon without did not look good, so Mom passed on that. Then it was back to drop Kim off (and all the food, too, that she bought) and head home. Long day for Mom and Kim, for sure. Now she is home and I am velcroed to her. She brought me some snow peas, which were yummy. But the best place to be? On Mom's shoulder, getting head scritches and chin scritches. Love it!

Hope you had a wonderful day, too! Wing hugs coming atcha!

Your buddy,
Kaji

  HI WILLIE!!!
Mom said the cardiovascular surgeon was happy when checking the sight on the back of her knee were he entered to clear the blockage and insert the stent..He said the blood clot was a result from the artery laying on the vein and cutting the blood flow and he gave it a name Mom cannot remember..Along with that he did say it is results from a gene she was born with...He can not guarantee that it will never happen again but if it does it will not be in the same vein...He wants to keep a close check on it for now..She is okay with that..No rain here..Beautiful day with lower humidity...The 2 pools here are quite full today...Hope you are having a great Friday...Many birdie wing hugs to you my dear friend...Love you, Sam :o)

  Hello Willie~
I hope you are having a fun day! We just read that there is a town in Iran that with the heat index it is 163!!! I can no longer complain about the heat! I don't think anything can live in temps that high! I sure hope everyone is staying inside with A/C! WOOZERS! I thought Mojave was hot when it was 122 but that's nothing!
Enjoy the day!!

  Hi Willie
So you don't have a spigot on the outside of the house? That would be a pain in the vent. Boy that's a little bit of a wait ... mom would have to do laundry in the time you have had the space taken up lol. Hope you have a great day. V4U. Hugs.

  Hi Willie
Mom doesn't need a new cage for us,Nana needs one for Trixie our cousin.The Pet shop still hasn't gotten back to her on the broken cage and Nana is tired of constantly having to call them and getting nowhere with them.Trixie is never going to go back in her cage if she ever gets a new one!LOL!She's having a good time being able to come and go as she wishes all day long!
This morning was another hot bright sunny morning with the highs for the day at 85 and the lows of 70 for tonight,right now its 81 and partially cloudy with a breeze out there.Mom got us all up,fed and cleaned our cages,and swept the floor.Then she scrubbed both bathrooms and was contemplating on vacuuming the house but decided against it for today as its too hot to be running a hot vacuum only to make the house even hotter.Mom collected the trash for tomorrow and put the recyclables in her car.It doesn't look like we'll be getting outside again today because of the high humidity.Maybe tonight for dinner when the sun is getting ready to leave the sky and its a lot cooler we can join the parronts for dinner on the deck.Its a very uneventful day here and Mom and all of us are happy for that.Lately having a nice quiet boring day with Mom while she works around the house it quite alright with us!Its more than alright with Mom,she looks forward to these kinds of days!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses!Loving you always and forever,sweet Willie,Love Peepers

  Hello Willie~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!! I think it's hot just about everywhere now. I think we are going to break the record for the most days over 90 today. I guess they have been keeping the record for about 120 years.
Seahawks training camp starts tomorrow and Taima the hawk is coming over for a meet and greet! Wish we could get up there to see him but mom has to work the whole weekend. Everyone is very excited for football to start again. It seems rather dull around here without it!
We are finishing up laundry and getting things ready for mom to go back to work tonight. It's not much fun but I do have some new toys to keep me occupied!
I hope your day is just fabulous!! Stay cool and enjoy it!

  HI WILLIE!!!
So today it is cloudy with a slight breeze blowing and keeping it quite comfortable..They say we are in for some t-showers most of the day and when they leave the area the humidity should be lower...That is a wait and see for sure..Mom sees her cardiovascular surgeon today for a follow-up..She will find out how things are going...Have a great Thursday and get lots of those much loved scritches from Mom....Pecked a V4U...Many birdie wing hugs to you my dear friend...Love you buddy, Sam :o)
