  Hi Dino
back in the fall mom found a small sparrow that had somehow gotten its leg tanged in a bird house filled with our doggies hair mom clips every spring for the birds making nests. there was another sparrow tangled in it also and mom thinks it was trying to help the other one that was dangling by its leg. mom had a heck of a time getting the sparrows leg out and felt the sparrow probably broke it by struggling so much. once she untangled the one sparrows leg the other sparrow became free also and they both quickly flew away before mom could check for any broken legs. today dad had the doggie outside to do her business and called for mom to come out because there was a little bird sitting on the driveway. somehow mom recognized this sparrow as the one dangling by its leg months ago from the bird house. it sat there for a few minutes and looked at mom and then it hobbled away and then flew to a nearby tree. mom knows its leg has never healed but at least it looked in good shape considering its bad leg.

I, Boo Boo, the rare blue bali mynah will be running for BOTM starting tomorrow and would greatly appreciate your votes. i don't have anything planned but will try and entertain you with some interesting facts.

love Boo Boo

  Hello Dino~
I hope you are having a lovely day! I had a lovely cranberry scone for breakfast so it's been a great day so far! The gardeners are here but since it's raining they are not going to get much done! I suppose that it will be all bush trimming and sweeping today so it won't be too interesting, Suppose I'll have to find someone else to yell at today!
Mom is cleaning today so I will just supervise and wait for the cooking to start and see what is on the menu for the day!
I do hope you enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

First time this week mom has given us some time. She CLAIMS to have been busy. She certainly has not been home much.
I am busy taking apart my collar. It is so satisfying to break the threads.
Another few inches of snow on Sunday, but we eggspect that in March.
At least we see some sun today.

  Hi Dino
Thanks for the tip. Mom always has Dawn dishwashing liquid, which they use at the wildlife center, so she can try it. A few people suggested vinegar and water, too. We'll try them both when the Poop off runs out.
I really like your new pic, it's very spring like. If I remember, we'll send your mom a birthday wish on St. Pat's day, too.
We got our Bird Talk with points, and it came the other day. Mom is so far just looking at it, but I think she'll love the conure article, hahaha.
At the wildlife center there was some bad news today. The center lost Cy, one of the education owls. The little grey phase screech owl was brought to us a few years ago after having fallen (or been pushed) from his nest. He had some neurological problems and was missing an eye, so he couldn't be released. He became one of our dear education animals. Lately though, he's been having more seizures and they've been getting worse, so the decision was made to put him down to save him further suffering. It's always sad when they decide to euthanize an animal there, but one with a name whom everyone has worked with is almost unbearably sad. Mom cried this morning when she read the email, and is still kind of dripping. Cy is okay now, we know, and is whole and healthy once again. Fly free, little Cyclops, we'll all miss you.
I hope you are having a wonderful day, full of cuddles and scritches (and warmth). Hugs, Falco

  Hi Dino
thanka for liking my picture. i had a heck of a time finding a dress.

the doggies cast has come off and her leg is healed but she was still limping and we found out she had a fungal infection on her toe from being moist while in the cast so we have been treating her with antibiotics and fungus medicine
dad took the doggie to the vet today to check the progress of her healing. while at the vets office the pad on the bottom of doggies toe fell off. there is a big hole there now. all the tissue inside the hole is very healthy and should regrow and fill the hole up. the vet said there was still a little necrotic tissue on the sides which will also fall off but for dad not to worry

Hey buddy! How are you? Did you have a nice Valentines Day? We did!
We do get ice storms here in Ct in the winter. Today the weather was awful with some snow making the roads slippery. Tomorrow night we are getting snow again! Yikes! Sounds like your weather isn't any better than mine! The weather is so crazy now days!
That's too bad that the doctor isn't helping her.Kick boxing? Sounds awesome!
Another thing your mom might like is Walk Aeorobics withnLeslie Sansone. Mom has done that for years...and really likes it.
You still didn't get Bird Talk? It's crazy how fast we got it.
Hope you had a nicecday buddy!

  Hi Dino
It's good to see you again, my friend! It's been awhile. Mom did about 14 quizzes the other day when her courses wouldn't load. She was bored, so did bird quizzes instead.
Thanks for the great St. Pat's pics go to Aunt Rose once again. She always comes through for us.
We are in the deep freeze again, not that we ever got out of it. Most of the schools around here had a delay today from the cold temps. They were warning people to cover themselves well if they had to go out this morning. When mom walked the dogs, though, it didn't feel that cold. Of course she waited until 9:30, so that probably helped. The dogs' outdoor tie outs have cracked in several places because of the weather, so I guess mom will be buying new ones already.
Nothing much going on today, mom will run some errands and tend to laundry before washing all the cages later on. We've been using Poop Off for years, which works just fine. It's a bit pricey, though, so if anyone has a better alternative, we're open to suggestions.
I hope you have a great day today. Stay warm, and get lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hello Dino~
I hope you are having a great day! Dad is back on the road and it's not New Mexico he was going to, it Colorado! Different story all together. Mom could have sworn he said New Mexico but he tells her he told her it was Pueblo which is in Colorado! Well he got to the yard and they don't think he can make it all the way to Colorado on time so now he is going to Salt Lake City! Good news is that most of the mountain passes between here and there are bare and dry. There is a storm blowing in today but it's mostly wind and it's just not cold enough to snow. We did put the fireplace on for a bit this morning just to warm the room up for me.
Mom is finishing up the laundry and then she'll head off to bed. We had a great weekend but now it's time for the workweek to start! I wish I could be at the Milonga tonight but mom will be sleeping so I won't have a typist! I think I have only made it to one but I always go back on Sunday morning and read all about it!
I hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

Well, the sun AIN'T HERE.
The current snow storm is south of us, so at least not much new snow this round.
We can tell Spring is coming--the darkness goes away earlier in the day.
I do not like my new collar, mom made it harder to get around to my shoulder. AND my should is itchy, plus I'm hormonal. Kinda crabby.

I hope you are having a wonderful day! I finally have some time to get a note out! Dad has been home for a few days and is now getting ready to head out again. He was suppose to go tomorrow but there might be snow in the mountains tomorrow so he is getting a head start to avoid the snow!
Just the usual stuff going on around here. Lots of cleaning up and boring stuff like that. I have kept myself busy with toys and snacks and lots of play time with mom.

HAPPY HUMPDAY

today the doggie got her splint off. the vet said her bone is completely healed in her leg. when she came home she was limping like crazy and after looking at her foot it was all bloody so bcd to the vet she went. the vet said because the splint held her toes so close together they are almost like bed sores on her and of course she just wants to lick them so the vet put a cone on her head. the poor doggie. she doesn't seem to mind the cone and hopefully the pain from the sores on her foot will heal quickly

Hey buddy! How are you? So good to hear from you! We've been thinking about you!
We had a nice Valentines Day. My parronts and skin sis went out to dinner. Sounds like your parronts and granny had a nice day too!
We are longing for spring too. Last night we had an ice storm. We have noticed that it's staying light outside later! Yay!
Is your mom feeling any better? She is doing KBT...what is that? Hope she is feeling better.
Glad your mom got a diagnosis on her foot. It must be really sore. Hopefully she won't need to have surgery. Hope the soles work out for her.
It is hard waiting by the phone for test results. Sounds like your mom has been really busy with appointments too!
I got my BirdTalk USA 2015 already. I used my points on BC. It came quite quickly. Did you order yours? Sure hope comes soon for you. We remember last year....
Hope you are doing well my friend and we hope your mom is feeling better and getting her rest.
Much love to my best buddy,

Happy Valentine's day! Mom is starts her workweek tonight so we are having a little celebration for lunch! There are some yummy apple muffins just waiting for this little zon to sink her beak into them!
We are getting some cooking done and some laundry too. We never seem to run out of laundry for some reason! The dog is going to get another bath and then mom will be off to bed and I'll be off to the night cage to destroy another toy!
Enjoy your day!

  Hello Dino~
I hope you guys are having a great day! Lots of cleaning going on this morning. Mom wishes she did not have to work tonight so she could get more done. She'll be off tomorrow night so the chores will continue tomorrow. Mom will come home and take a nap in the morning and then get me my toast!! She thinks she will go to Ross tomorrow to buy some new clothes. Dad gave her a gift card for Christmas and told her that her clothes were mostly junk and she needed some new stuff! I guess you can tell mom doesn't like clothes shopping much!
Dad has been in a motel in Phoenix for 3 days. He is really bored and wants to get back out on the road. He has his laptop with him and can watch TV. There is a Jack in the Box and a Waffle House within walking distance but I think he is tired of them. The satellite system broke and it is taking them forever to get it fixed. His terminal up here is complaining to the shop in Phoenix because they are taking so long. They told dad it should be done today but if it's not done by 6pm he will be in the motel for another night.
Mom and Jennifer went over to the dollar store and bought some cards and candies for the kids at the daycare. They are having a Valentine's party tomorrow. The kids decorated paper lunch sacks and all the candy will go into their bags!
I think they are going to have lots of fun!
I hope you have lots of fun today!! Leaving a vote and a big hug too!

  Hello Dino~
I hope you are having a great day! I heard that BC was all messed up this morning! They usually do that on Sunday mornings but maybe they were busy yesterday!
The school bus was late this morning!!! I know what you are thinking~~Sugar has no little kids in her house so why is she worried about the school bus being late??
Well, the little kids love to stand in the driveway while waiting for the school bus and pump their arms up and down! This causes the many big rigs going down our street to honk their loud honking horns!!!! A few times is cute but when the school bus is 8 minutes late, you get it 22 times! It quit being cute after the 3rd time! Lets hope Mr. Bus Driver will be much more punctual tomorrow! Sugar will be checking up on him!!!!!!
Ian worked his first ever overnight last night. He came right home and went to sleep!HAHAHAHAHAHA Mom has already cleaned the carpet in the living room, mopped the dining room and done 2 loads of laundry! She would love to come home and go to sleep but I am use to my schedule and need to have my toast and my apples and tell mom all about what went on while she was at work! Since we are all sleeping while she is at work, there usually isn't much to tell!
I hope your day is just wonderful!! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Dino
temperatures were 43 degrees today and it sure felt wonderful. the driveway is still very icy but slowly melting. i think tomorrow it might rain and help melt it faster

so far everything has been calm and uneventful around here which is just dandy with all of us. doggie hasn't lost her splint for 3 days. Cori got a bath tonight and then blow-dried.she pouted over this until just before bedtime when she then decided she wanted to play. tomorrow is nail trimming day so none of us re looking forward to that but it is an evil necessity. our one cat ate about 1 cup of her hard kibble and then brought the whole thing up undigested but she isn't sick. she just the like a pig so mom took away her food for now til her tummy calms down. the bad budgies we finally allowed to fly free in the bedroom for a few hours and man were they loud. they were so excited after being cooped up for almost a month.

mom was happy today when she noticed i was actually gripping my perch with my bad foot. usually i keep my foot all balled up

dad took the doggie back to the regular vet for her scheduled appointment today. the vet said the er vet had made the splint all wrong and then made the doggie a new one. when they came home from the vet the doggie then peed on the carpet. the doggie is trying to run around on three legs and dad yells at her to lay down. then dad lays down with her and goes to sleep.

How are you today? It's very cold and we have lots of snow here now. It snowed for 4 days straight and is to continue into the weekend as well. Where we live in Canada we do not get a lot of snow normally so other areas have a whole lot more then our 2 feet or so.
It is nice to relax in the castle this month. I plan to hold a special get-together for my friends during this month to celebrate a job-well-done in fighting the poachers and returning baby Armando to his family.
Have a great day my friend.

Hey buddy ! Good to hear from you!!
Your mom gets her MRI results on her foot next week? Hope she finds out what is wrong.
So your mom is considering CBT for her OCD? If she needs to take antidepressants she might not have to take them for the rest of her life. Did the doctor tell her that? She should discuss her concerns with her doctor. Maybe start with a low dose if she starts that.
So you are getting a lot of snow now? No snow here!! Yay! It's getting a bit lighter here too with the evenings not getting dark as early! We will be glad when the days are longer!
Did you mom help you with your pin feathers? I won't let my mom touch mine!

I hope you are having a great day! I am supervising laundry today! It's a rough job but some bird has to do it! I really don't know what mom would do without me here to yell and fuss while she is trying to get chores done! I really do think it makes her move faster!hahahahahahaha
Well the Seahawks have shown us how to win a game in 3 minutes and now how to lose one in 26 seconds! They are still my team, I am still a 12th bird and I really am very proud of all their achievements this year! I hope they are proud of themselves too and just move on!
One very nice story is that Chris Pratt~from Seattle and the star of Guardians of the Galaxy~and Chris Evans~from Boston and is Captain America~made a bet. If the Hawks won Chris Evans would visit Children's Hospital in Seattle dressed as Captain America! If the Patriot won Chris Pratt would visit a charity in Boston dressed as Star Lord! Even thought the Patriots won, Chris Evans is coming to Children' Hospital Seattle!! They are both really good guys! Those kid's are going to be so excited!
Punxsutawney Phil says there will be 6 more weeks of winter! I really don't think that was a hard call at all!!! Did you know that in the old days the use to eat the groundhog! Is that gross or what???? ICK! The poor groundhog and really?? Who eats groundhogs? Guess they didn't have McDonalds back then!hahahahahaha

I hope you are having a fun day! I'm done with my yelling for now and have gone back to chomping down on my veggie bowl. I got apple last night so mom gave me veggies this morning. It's fun to switch it around sometimes and as long as I get something I like to eat, I don't seem to mind!
The last load of laundry is in the washer and mom had some to put away. We seem to be doing laundry everyday now so it is not such a big deal.
There is a big line at the Starbucks next door! They are selling Seahawk Fraps! Mom treated herself to one after she renewed her license yesterday and it was yummy! It's the Vanilla cream, which mom likes anyway, with blueberries and a green tea whip on top! Seahawk colors! There are Seahawk colors everywhere up here today and I imagine tomorrow will be the same! Mom wore her 12th shirt to the DOL but the drivers license picture is only your face so you can't see the shirt! BUMMER! Almost everyone at the DOL was in Seahawk gear, even the employees! I think it's going to seem a bit dull around here without Blue Fridays!

  Hi Dino
Hello BC commando's, Amando here on this final day in the Brazilian Rainforest. We we took a bite out-of-crime, Sugar and Dory watched baby Armando. He was very restless and alert as he listened to the screams and calls of the angry birds. Suddenly he hears a familiar call echoing over the treetops. He replies happily. The calls continue as baby Armando replies over and over again. Captain Finny appears over the edge of the clearing, and there, following close behind are two beautiful adult Blue-fronted Amazons. The three land close to Sugar. Baby Armando stands up as tall as his tiny legs will allow him to and chirps non-stop. A lovely Zon moves closer, chirping softly in reply. The baby gets even more eggcited.
JL and Amando whistle in loud short Zon calls and the attack comes to an end. The birds leave their prisoners lying entangled in the nets and rejoin them near to baby Armando and the two wild Parrots. The wild Zon reaches forward to touch the baby gently, not certain if it is their chick after so long. The baby responds with happy chirps of happiness, "Momma? Poppa? it is me baby Armando."
The two Parrots grin happily and snuggle their stolen offspring to them. "How do we ever thank-you for saving our baby, and freeing our flockmates from the cages those evil poachers had them imprisoned in? Our flock was once very large over 80 adults but the poachers come again and again stealing them away, taking our chicks from our homes. They cut down our nest tree and stole Armando and our two other babies. We now have no home to take Armando to."
Gus speaks up happily, " we have a nest for you. BB built it to trap the poachers but we didn't have to use it. It is solid, and warm and we will put it high into a tree were you and your family will be safe."
The BC Commandos cheer as they watch baby Armando with his Momma and Poppa. The family is so happy to be together once more. "Sadly this is not the true outcome of poaching. Humans can help stop this awful trade in wild-caught Parrots by becoming our voice in the World. By NEVER buying Parrots without bands or documents showing where they originated from. Remember that many wild Parrots are sent to Europe to be shipped back into the USA. Encourage Eco-tourism as an alternative to poaching. HELP US STOP THE UNNECESSARY TRAPPING OF WILD PARROTS THROUGH OUT THE WORLD!"
Remember Paoo, what he suffered because of human greed, and also remember that many former poachers now fight on the other side of the law because of their intimate knowledge of the area and of bird habits, these poachers-turned-rangers are undeniably the most able bird conservationists available.

  Hi Dino
Amando here, shhhhhh! We are just preparing to wage an all-out attack on five poachers int he Rainforest of Brazil. Make sure you have your camo hat on, and let's await JL's order to move in!
The Green Angels and Finny have found Armando's Momma and Daddy!! But have warned them that it's not safe to reunite them until we get those poachers. So even though they are very anxious to get their little Armando back, they've agreed to wait and help us. They're up there with the Green Angels and Finny right now in the tree tops tending the nets, ready to cut them down at a moments notice. Their awaiting the signal, but they're really geeked!
Jenny-Lynn and Amando stand on fallen tree limbs, Sky is perched in the tree near to the trap nest box. The Special Forces are standing, beaks ready at the net ropes. Zippy has already begun working on a rope that holds a large webbed net. Suddenly JL and Amando let out a shrill Zon whistle, the signal to begin their attack. The birds begin to chew and tear at the ropes holding the nets in place.
"WE ARE READY TO TAKE DOWN THEM POACHERS AND TEACH THEM A HARD LESSON" Sweetpepper whispers to Kiddo.
With wave of her wing JL leads the BC troops into battle, "we will do what we came here to do, and by the way you have all come together, we shall be invincible!" moving ahead she exclaims, " WE SHALL LEAD FROM THE FRONT! No more stolen parrots, no more needless suffering, are ya with me gang!" Then loudly so the startled poachers hear," Poachers, this is not your day, on this day you pay for your cruelty.'
The startled poachers turn every-which-way trying to see who has spoken. Then out of the jungle, from the sky above come the birds, screaming in anger as they swoop in for the attack. JL and Amando see the Blue-fronts crammed into wire cages and their hatred boils over. Cappy attacks the ring-leader without mercy, biting his hand hard and refusing to let go. The Special forces have the nets freed and as the five cowardly criminals try to run, the net falls entrapping them like they the innocent Parrots they have caught in the past. The air is filled with screams of outrage as the wild Blue-fronts arrive to help. The men scream in fear as bird after bird attacks, biting or pooping on them as they struggle to get free of the nets.
BonBon and Parker are gone to get the jaguars! The cats are very eggsited to help get the poachers! Their kind is also being poached for their fur! The angry jungle cats growl fiercely as they see the poachers flailing in the nets they'd set to trap Parrots. The poachers cry for help, like the Parrots they've captured but no one can hear them. Falco and Jesse free the trapped Zons from their prison, only one is injured from this group. They join in the assault on their enemies.

  Hi Dino
somehow on monday just before dad was going to take the doggie to the vet to talk about the tumor and treatment on doggies toe on her left leg our doggie started limping like crazy and so when dad went to the vet they x-rayed the doggie and said she had a broken right leg. we don't know how this happened. now doggie has a splint on her right leg and she must wear a waterproof sock over the splint every time she goes outside to potty. its very hard for her to walk around in all the icy snow. dad shoveled a path in the yard but it keeps melting and freezing and now its solid ice. anyway doggie is being very good and braves the snow and makes her poo and pee. the vet said not to do anything about the tumor on the left leg until the right leg heals.

while mom was feeding us this morning she looked outside and there was a big buck standing on our patio looking in the window. I didn't make a sound. the buck was very jumpy like someone was after it and it jumped down to the neighbors yard and hung around for about an hour before taking off.

when the roads are treacherous the ones you have to watch out for are the drivers that think because they have an suv they can drive fast and nothing will happen. they are the ones who lose control and crash into everyone. today started out with rain and with the rain falling were the most gigantic snowflakes i have ever seen. then it warmed up a tad bit and a lot of the snow turned to slush. now tonight it is cold again and the slush has turned into sheets of ice so tomorrow morning will be very bad for driving. at least we haven't got the big winds that were predicted

love Boo Boo

  Hi Dino
Hello to all my Amazon Adventurers, Amando here with an update on events as they unfold in the Tropical Rain forest. Some of asked about those blue-fronted Amazons in the cages in my gallery. That is where our Armandos family will end up if we do not stop those poachers from trapping them for the PET TRADE. I have no doubts we will put a stop to their plans.
BonBon, Boo Boo, Pepper, Angel, Chyna, Polly, Zippy, LA and Dixie sneak off through the undergrowth to get a better look at what the poachers have been working on. Being very careful and quiet they work slowly towards the opening where the Green Angels have observed their enemies devilish work. Taking note of the area, the nets and where each poacher waits, hidden in the trees for the unsuspecting Blue-Fronted Amazon flock to arrive at their feeding grounds. Returning to the others they explain in detail the whole scene. After listen quietly, Cappy's anger grows to a frenzy of temper, "Today would be an eggcellent day to kick some poacher tail feathers." Cappy ruffles his feathers in anticipation and the look in his eyes would scare anybody.
Kaji grins,"Gotta say, Lizzie is so ready to torch those guys if you want her to. More than happy! She could do a slow roast, good fire power control." Lizzie smiles sweetly and puffs a small flame from her mouth to emphasize Kaji's point.
Ipo is more then ready for battle against the poachers. Ipo whips out her sword. "This is getting too much!!" She gets ready to fly when she feels Sophie's wing on her shoulder "this isn't your time, Ipo. We must await the other rescuers. Your turn will come soon. Now put that away." Jenny and Amando consult together with Sky, Cappy and Kaji, then standing on a rock JL clears her voice and begins to outline the plan for attack. "we will sneak up on them. The Special Forces will tend to the nets, cutting them down from the trees. Silver, you and Chuey are in charge of rope chewing, pick helpers and remove every rope you see. The rest of us will wait for the nets to drop and begin our attack. We are going to bite, scratch, chase, net, warm-up ( she grins at Lizzie) those poachers like they have never dreamed possible."
The birds cheer and high 4 one another, "Then we will return Armando to his flock safe and sound. We have to deal with these thieves first. This poaching happens everyday around the world. Innocent Parrots are stolen from nests, their flocks, many die, many suffer untold abuse and neglect just so people can get "cheap" Parrots. ENOUGH!" AMANDO YELLS.
Sky grabs BB's nest box and carries it under his wing as the BC Commando troops move into position. With the help of Elvis, Willie, Oz and Chyna they get the trap high in one of the trees.
"OK TROOPS Let's go get us some poachers" JL calls with determination as they move as one and begin their plot to stop their unsuspecting enemies.

  Hi Dino
Great to see you, my friend! Hope you're doing well in your part of the world.
Mom is a little worried today. She has to go to the museum, which is about a half hour drive. This is normally fine, but they are predicting freezing rain for exactly the times she'll be gone today! They said it would start late morning and continue to early afternoon. Her tour is at 11:20! We hope driving conditions aren't as bad as predicted. Mom doesn't mind driving on snow, but ice is a whole different story.
Other than that, there's nothing new. I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Peppino, Divo & Falco.

  Hi Dino
Amando here with today's Amazon Adventure update. We have located the flock of wild Blue-Fronted Zons who had been attacked by the same group of poachers earlier this year raiding countless nests for babies. The poachers have been secretly laying nets to trap Armando's flock at their daily feeding grounds just ahead of us. We must move with extreme caution and be on the ready from here on.
Capt. Finny, Chuey, Kallie and Pearl return to the group for a quick briefing. "Since spotting baby Armando's flock, the Green Angels and I have been flying from tree to tree trying to locate his Momma. At the same time we are warning all 38 blue-fronted Amazons of the danger lurking beneath them. We are warning them to stay as high in the tree canopy as possible since the poachers cannot get too high where the branches turn into twigs, and watch out for nets. We told them that we have an entire company of parrots coming to their aid and told them to stay hidden until they hear JL's command to attack. Then they can join in the fun of ripping those poachers to bits and wrapping them in the very nets they had intended for the birds. In the mean time we'll continue our search for his Momma. Only 11 more trees to go..." off they fly to continue their search.
Kiddo whispers to Susan and Polly, " Nothing makes me madder then poachers, and they are just lucky my mom isn't here.."
Kaji tells Amando his idea, "We gotta get to the flock before the poachers do. I still say Lizzie could torch the dirty jerks, no problem. I bet she would scare the living you know what out of those evil people." Amando laughs at the thought.
Sweetpepper plays with baby Armando, she tells Sugar and Dory" It's very sad that 17 babies died. We will give baby Armando back to his parronts and save them from those rotten poachers." Sugar smiles but the anger in her eyes tells it all.
Cori and Boo Boo sigh, we have an idea, "we say lets get rid of these poachers once and for all. ,hey are only doing it because they need money. lets show them something they can do that doesn't harm anything and makes them lots of money, turning their poo into bio fuel." Sky can't help but grin at that thought. Jenny-Lynn nods her head in agreement then suddenly raises her wing for the group to halt, making the "be quiet" sign at the same time. Leaning close to Amando's ear she says, "your plans for Armando's return is a good one, we certainly have the parrot power to succeed! I almost feel sorry for those poacher folks! Somebody will have to hold Cappy back, I think that dude can get violent, LOL!"
They watch Cappy sharpening his beak. Cappy speaks up," if there are 5 poachers then I suggest a two fold trap ... the net and also a deadfall ... a hidden box with a fake nest and bird to attract them poachers in and as soon as they reach for it ...baaam ... the box slams shut ... effectively trapping them and making them vulnerable to our attack. What do you think ."

  Hi Dino
Hello Birdie Commandos, Amando here in the sunny Brazilian Rain Forest. We are on our way to intercept baby Armando's flock and reunite him with his Momma. We have been made aware of poacher activities in the clearing up ahead at a frequently used feeding grounds. As we begin our trek across the dense jungle of south America our goal is to stop the poachers and take a BIG bite out of the illegal Parrot trade once and for all. Amando, Jenny-Lynn and Sky move out ahead of the others using their machetes to cut through the vines and growth making a path for the others to follow. " Those paochers are gonna be sorry they messed with us!" JL comments with an angry Zon growl. Calling a halt, the group stops for a brief rest beside a cool stream.
Cappy quickly sharpens his beak and talons before the group heads off again. He wants to make sure he is able to rip and shred flesh easily. Dory and Dixie hang back with little Armando and Dixie quietly plays peek-a-boo with him to take his mind off what's going on. Rudy ... is looking for something to eat again. Finding some avi-cakes to munch on.
"We need to make a plan to catch them cold-handed, and teach them a lesson they won't forget." Jenny comments to the others.
"If we lay the net on the ground and cover it with leaves, maybe they'll get caught and tangled and trip over themselves !" Cookie exclaims determination on his face
"A note to the poachers; "I know who you are, and what you do I shall never forgive you for, ever, YOU BELONG TO ME! My name is Jenny Lynn, and this is the same jungle my mom and dad grew up in, you are dead meat, GAME ON! " She gets an angry look in her eyes as see thinks of all the birds who have lived and died at the hands of poachers, of the thousands, upon thousands who have been stolen away from their homes, families and flocks, of Paoo who was mutilated for the enjoyment of humans to see. THIS IS WAR. We must fight hard, and we must never given in." she yells loudly and is joined by the cheers of agreement from all the others.
Amando climbs up onto a fallen limb, " Our greatest challenge lies before us. Captain Finny and the Green Angels have been doing reconnaissance and have brought back confirmation that there are 5 poachers ahead to the south west. Also they have located the flock from which baby Armando was stolen. There are approximately 38 Blue-fronted Amazons living and nesting not four miles from here. It appears that the same group of thieves raided the nests of fourteen nesting pairs this year taking all but two youngsters from their homes. Three adults were severely injured while attempting to defend their nests from intruders. Very fortunately no adults were killed at that time, but the mortality rate among the stolen chicks was high, out of thirty-three chicks, seventeen died en-route to the village from chilling, dehydration and crowding. We believe baby Armando is one of the survivors of that nest raid."
