Rainbow here! I've perched myself in front of the computer this weekend with my list of birdie acquaintances beside me, determined to leave a note with each one, including you and Orion. The summer is chugging by, one pleasant day after another here. Hope it's doing the same at your house! I was in a tree yesterday and making the ground look more like Autumn, what with all the leaves I was nibbling off and dropping. Then, when rainclouds rolled in, I ended up getting showered by Mother Nature! Mom holds me out in the rain on the end of my oak stick so I can get soaked all over. The first time she did that I was a bit freaked out and made every attempt to get back to her and the dry space under the porch. Now, I understand what's going on and get into the shower session. Well, just wanted to let you know I was thinkin' of ya and hopin' all is well with you! Until later... R ('>

I am SO glad to hear from YOU!!!! (I'm relieved to know that you're ok!! I don't like the mystery of NOT knowing if all is well.) It's a bummer your 'puter had a crash...sounds terrible! Sometimes I figure other birdies think my computer's on strike 'cause I don't get to write as much in the summertime, what with all the weeding and yardwork I have to supervise. It seems by the time I get Mom and Dad to come in from the yard it's bedtime already with little time to play on the 'puter! I can't believe I'm sayin' this but I'm lookin' forward to snow and colder weather, just so evenings are like they used to be...lots of note-writin'!! Everything is swell here...spending time in the yard or followin' my mom around the house. Toys have come and gone...because I chewed them to is good. Especially since I've heard from you! Take care...and I hope a new computer comes to your house soon. Chat later... R ('>

Rainbow say I've got a couple of new photos posted. It felt wonderful to be out in the sun and the breeze again after all these months indoors. I noticed Cheyenne complimented you on your smooth I inspected close and must agree...your beak is enviably smooth. Beautiful! Hope you've had a lovely day yourself! A V2U! R

What a beautifull girl you are. I visited your mate Orion before so I had to come see you too. I am a Jersey macaw too, we are the best !!! I understand you like to chew everything you can get your beak on. Me too, nothing like a good 2x4. Keep up the good work, our paronts love it, even though they won't admit it. Well, gotta go and give you my vote cause your such a cutie. WINGS UP !!! Jimmy

Come visit me, Jimmy.

  Just Hello...
Rainbow here, just flappin' around the birdie pages and stoppin' in to say 'Hi'! It was a warm enough day for me to go for a stroll around the yard. What a nice change of scenery after all these months indoors. Lookin' forward to hangin' out in my outdoor playpen and watchin' all the wild birds in the yard. Hope you had a nice day. R

  Hey Sydney
Amber told me about you and Orion. I am so glad you came to visit. Thanks for the compliment about my colors. I am only 9 months old and am still waiting for my adult feathers. I have one adult tail feather that dad says is beautiful and has no stress bars. So, I am looking forward to being as beautiful as you and Orion. So your dad is worried about the strength of a Hyacinth, not to worry, really. We are known as the Gentle Giants and we do the best we can to live up to our reputation. Yes, it's true that we are very strong but we have to be to crack the Macadamia Nuts that are the main part of our diet. We are not aggressive at all and horse around for attention and love. We love to have our entire body scratched and especially like our feet rubbed. I roll over in daddy's lap just so he will rub my feet and scratch my belly. Dad looked for me for 3 years and researched Hys while he was looking. His research convinced him that he and my mom could handle me and do the training necessary to make sure I would be a good partner and member of our flock. I live with Amber, who you already know, Casper, an African Grey, Hannie, a Moluccan Cockatoo, Scarlet, an Eclectus, and Louie, a Red Lord. Dad is more worried that one of them will nip me rather than me nip them. Of course, Parrots do posture for territory but there is no fighting between our flock members. So, let your Dad know that we are really difficult to find and are a bit on the expensive side cause our numbers are small and we are difficult to breed. I must admit though, dad makes it a point to keep everyone's fingers out of my mouth so as not to have an accident or train finger eating. I respect fingers and hands cause they feed and scratch me. Let your buddy Casey know about my friend Casper. They are both Greybirds and might like to talk. Your buddy Nomi is a beautiful Conure. Is she very loud? Amber told me she voted for you yesterday and promised a vote for Orion today so, I will go visit Orion and vote. Thanks again for the visit and if you ever get to Florida, be sure and look me up. If I meet your dad in person I could make him a believer. C-ya next time

Come visit me, Amber, Casper, Hannibal & Autumn.

  Thank you sooo much Sydney! You and your family are so sweet. My mom is trying to fix our computer because it is soooo slow. It is taking several minuets to go from one site to another. It has been doing this for a couple of days now. Well thank you again and we will talk to you very soon. xoxo Tweety

Come visit me, Tweety, Frosty and Ringo.

  Hey Sidney and Orion
Wow. You guys look just like me. What's up with thatLOL. Thanks for asking, my toe is all better. Wow, You guys are really cool. You should check out my flock buddy Autumn. She is a Macaw too but only has a couple of colors unlike us. We are all out on the back porch with Dad. He brings the whole flock out when he gets home from work. We just love it out here. All have our own play stands and get to bomb the dog (Gumbo) when she walks under us. Yuck. She don't care but Dad does. Anyway, thanks for the visit. My vote for Sidney today and Orion tomorrow. You guys try to stay warm up there in NJ. If you get the chance, go visit my flock buddies. Cya soon,
Amber. PS. Dad knows a girl in the UK who is searching for a name for her Hyacinth baby. Sidney, Dad told her about your name cause he thinks it's realy cool. We'll let you know if she chooses your name. They're going to name the baby Clyde but are still considering options. TaTa 4 now.

Come visit me, Amber, Casper, Hannibal & Autumn.

So it was just an itch. Well, it IS a cute picture! I noted you hesitated to call it cute. These humans sometimes have different ideas of 'cute', don't they? I put my claw down about a couple of photos that were taken, saying absolutely no publishing of those! (I'm not handsome in the least after a shower. A photograph of a 'drowned rat', as they called me, just isn't good PR!) I personally use your same pose (the itch) to indicate disinterest in a lecture, particularly the "No No!" lecture!. It speaks volumes, like Not listening. Don't care. Yeah, yeah, yeah. But on you, it's just plain...well, cute. Nice to hear from you Sydney. Hope your day is a pleasant one. XOXO back atcha! & a V2.

  What a Pretty Gal!
Rumor had it that a really gorgeous gal had her picture on her I've checked it out...and sure enough, you're a beauty. Tell me, is that picture pose a look of shyness, glamor, or was it just an itch?!? I'd love to see more photos! Pleasure to meet you. Do hope you'll swoop in and say hi on my page. From one Macaw to another...a vote!

Having met your flockmate, Casey, I wanted to see who else shares the roost with him. TWO Macaws! Man, I thought livin' with ONE was somethin'! Rainbow must meet you so I'm going to go wake the tired guy up and tell him there's these two beautiful Macaws he's just got to meet...tonight! I bet you're a sweetie, having been handled since you were a hatchling. My mom sure wishes she could've been involved in Rainbow's life from the start...he surely would've been less inclined to pinch for crazy reasons. I'm used to being cuddled and loved though I am into my ornery teenage years but I have my moments where I still love to be babied! Nice to meet you Sydney! A V2U!
