Their owner moved back to the United States and couldn't take them so we built an aviary for them at our house. Indio just flew into our yard one day answering the calls of the other 3! After a few days in quarantine, we put her in the budgie aviary and she immediately went to our bachelor, Superior and snuggled right up! Modelo is the latest budgie to arrive in the garden - an escapee from someone's house. He is loving and looking forward to integrating into the flock. Superior crossed to the Rainbow Bridge 8/28/2011..

Hi! My name is Bud & Modelo- Wintertime

I am a Budgerigar from Chuburna Puerto, Intl.

Budweiser, Modelo, Victor (RIP), Ice (RIP),, Modelo Light (RIP), Sophia (RIP), Victoria (RIP), Violet (RIP), Weiser (RIP), Puff (RIP). Indio (RIP). Blue (RIP), Tecate (RIP), Amarillo (RIP), Sol (RIP), Superior (RIP)

Angel Sophia was a very special lady! We rescued her about 3 years ago. She had a bad mite problem which we cleared up only to find out it had damaged her nares so bad, they were gone and it also destroyed half of the top of her beak which fell off. She remained cheerful and greeted us with songs every day. She was very tiny and once her health problems lessened, she became a good eater and gained weight. She was very brave and tried hard to stay alive but with respiratory problems brought on by the lack of nares, she finally crossed to the Rainbow Bridge on Thursday, Nov. 8, 2012 as she lay in my hand looking up at me. She had a moonlight funeral under the papaya tree fit for the special lady that she was. We will always love you, Angel Sophia!

Budgerigar

uncooked corn on the cob, millet

on our wood perches/branche- s during the day and our hanging perches in the evening - the ones with bells on them!

sharing the aviary with those darn lovebirds - they think they rule us all! But we have our own big aviary now! Yea!

Our parronts sing to us, talk to us and whistle at us and the food is always on time! They cover us up if it's really windy or cold!

just like to hang out and watch everything in the yard!.

We 'keets have to stick together! Always!.

  Hi Guys
It's pretty nice here today, in the high 40s to low 50s but cloudy. We hope the plants aren't too upset with this winter, because we know they need the cold to produce pretty springtime flowers. Mom keeps telling them to stay underground for awhile longer. Since the weather is so mild, folks at the wildlife center have a pool going for when the first baby squirrels will arrive. The earliest date is next week, the latest is around March 20th. Mom thinks around the 16th of March, but that's probably too late. Squirrels breed according to photoperiod, not weather, so she might be right after all. Owls and hawks have already laid eggs, or will do so soon, so their babies can take advantage of spring, too.
Today at the center was disinfection day. Mom and another volunteer were assigned to do the menagerie. It takes a long time to disinfect, so 2 people or more are needed in a large area. Mom did some laundry and dishes, and prepared diets for the animals in the menagerie while waiting for the bleach to take effect. (Once everything in the enclosure is either discarded or otherwise removed for cleaning, the walls, floor, and ceiling are sprayed with disinfectant, which has to sit for 10 minutes.) It's a monthly protocol in the menagerie.
Now that she's home, she's with us the rest of the day, YAY! I think she might do some laundry, but otherwise she'll be playing with us and reading.
I hope you are having a great day today, and getting lots of parront time, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

Well here it is a peaceful Sunday once again, and in Cookie's home it is baking day, we would love to be there, if only to smell all the wonderful aroma of aunt Mary's baking, we bet that would knock your socks off! Dad is having a hard time getting his ol' motor running smoothly today, but it will catch up shortly, there is no real reason! He will finish his daily cleaning chores and get ready for our cleaning lady tomorrow, but there will be a lot of football on the tube! Christmas Day is so close, and I hate to sound like a broken record, but it slipped right up on us, gee whiz! Have a great Sunday dear friends, and give our best love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

I can hear the my new flock members chatting from another room, and I wish I could meet them now! But my new mom says I have to wait a month....just in case. Oh well. At least I can talk to them. I've been eating well and playing with toys, so that's good! Okay....it is time for me to go to sleep! Night night everybirdie!

  Hi Bud & Modelo,
Thanks so much for your condolences! We will miss Rico, he was a special guy! I know he found Scion right away, and I'm glad to think he's got a big brother to show him the ropes.

We really miss all our BC friends and wish our typist had time to blog for us again. Life's too busy with work, school, kids, fids, etc. She keeps breaking that "no more birds!" rule, too. But she SWEARS that this time, she means it!

Annie is doing great and is as queenly as ever. She misses Scion terribly but she's very brave about it. She lives in a cage with 2 boys (Chewy and Pie Face) and won't give either of them a second look. She's very happy being an independent woman.

We hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Mexico style!

Hugs,
Paulie & flock

  Hi dear Yucatan friends-from Jenny & Ziggy
We are not familiar with Budweiser & Modelo, you kids must be new in the Yucatanner flock, we would like to get to know you better! We already have so many friends m we are reluctant to make new ones in the interest of being fair to all! That was a wild and crazy Halloween Milonga last night, Kiddo did a masterful job with his Cemetery Tour, it got a little bit scary at some points, but hey, I am an Amazon and not to much scares me, LOL! It is in the mid-thirties at our home, we had to put another log on the fire! Who won the pumpkin skateboard race, we had to leave before it was over! Have a fabulous Sunday dear friends, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow...

  Hello Budweiser~
I hope you are enjoying your day! It's very pretty here but it still feel a bit cool this morning. Today is the last day our complex pool is open so there are tons of people already over there! I'm going to miss yelling at those silly humans splashing in that big bathtub!
It's cooking day since mom starts her work week tonight so I'm hoping for some corn bread. Just a bunch of veggies and a casserole so far!
Enjoy your day and I hope it's spectacular!

Here is today's Parakeet Blog~

Today is the last Parakeet blog! I hope you have enjoyed them as much as I have. It's been a pleasure to learn all about these wonderful birds and a pleasure to be part of Muffin's campaign!

I am ending the Parakeet blogs with the most popular bird in the US ~ The American Budgerigar! There are 120 species of Parakeets and may subspecies also! I did a little research on Budgie clubs and shows and I am sharing that with you today!

The two biggest Budgerigar clubs in the US are the American Budgerigar Society and the Budgerigar Association of America. The American Budgerigar Society and been around since 1941. They are having their annual show on September 19 through the 21st in Nashville. The 2012 winner is pictured in my gallery.

The Budgerigar Association of America is holding it's annual show this weekend in Tampa Florida. They were established in 1999.

To show a Budgie at a competition, you have to have breed that Budgie yourself. They have all different kinds of levels from beginners to experts. They have special cages you must use for competition. There is a picture of one in my gallery.

The Budgies have to be between 8 1/2 inches to 9 1/2 inches from head to the tip of their tail. The perfect size for American competition in 9 inches. The feathers have to be symmetrical and there must be 2 long tail feathers. The bird must sit perfectly still and alert on the perch. If they move around, they get points deducted. Obviously, there will never, ever be an Amazon competition! hehehehehehe

Just like with dog shows, there has to be a proven pedigree with the Budgies. It has become a very popular hobby here in the United States as well as in England, Canada and Germany. I think all my Budgie friends here on the BC deserve Blue Ribbons even if they don't have a pedigree!! Enjoy the pictures of some of our friends in my gallery!

It has been an honor to share these blogs with you! I thank you all so very much for your support of Muffin 203943! It's the last day so let us send her off to the castle in style!

Love, Hugs and a vote for you ~ Sugar

  Hello Budweiser~
I hope you are having a great day! I am keeping an eye on the gardeners right now and making sure they are mowing the lawns just the way I like them!hehehehehe They will be here most of the day since it takes them nearly 8 hours to do the entire complex!
We are going to get some cleaning done around here today so I will be supervising. When the towels are ready to fold, I'll jump in the basket and help out! I am very good at folding towels.
I hope you enjoy your day!

Here it today's Parakeet Blog.

Today I am going to talk about 2 parakeets. They live in the Andes Mountains in South America. The Sierra Parakeet is also known as the Aymara Parakeet or the Grey-hooded Parakeet. The Mountain Parakeet is also known as the Golden-front Parakeet. Check out their pictures in my gallery!

The Andes Mountains run down the entire length of western South America. At 4400 miles long, they are the longest mountain range on land. The highest peak is at 22,841 feet! It runs through Argentina, Chile, Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, Columbia and Venezuela.

The Sierra Parakeet lives at about 9800 feet. The Mountain Parakeet lives at 11,000 feet. The climate along the mountain is very diverse but these birds seem to eat about the same thing as most parakeets. Seeds, buds, fruits and berries. They are both very small parakeets and both are abundant in the wild. The Mountain Parakeet lives closer to the coast than the Sierra Parakeet.

These birds are another kind who are called dimorphic. That means you can tell the girls from the boys by looking at them. The Sierra Parakeet girls are said to have less black on their heads and less blue on their chests. The Mountain Parakeets girls do not have yellow on their forehead.

As for keeping these little birds as pets, I did not find any breeders in North America. There were a few ads for them in England and I saw a You-Tube video of a pet Sierra Parakeet from Japan.

Thank you so much for your time and thank you so much for your votes for Muffin 203943! She appreciates every vote she gets and it grateful to all of you for supporting her! Only 2 days to go so please get over and leave a vote and encourage your friends to do the same!

Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar
