Daddy (and Mom) took us home from the pet store (he was a falconer and had red tail hawks previously, but we smaller birds are easier...) If anyone is interested in becoming a falconer, you need to find a currently licensed falconer to sponsor and train you. You have to take and pass a test. You have to pay for a license. You need to have all the equipment to keep a bird - a mews (the hawkhouse), a travel box, a falconer's glove, jesses for the bird, hoods, food, etc. and everything is inspected by fish and game. Then when you have all the training and license you build a trap and catch a wild (first year) red-tail hawk, but during the trapping season. All novices start with a red-tail and you have to train it and eventually you take it hunting. Whew! Dad was the falconer, but Mom would tag along. They did that for a few years, but now they have us, the cockatiels!

It's the weekend ! Best of all only a few more days of school till mom's vacation ! She's off Friday and the first week of April :) Lots of time for ME ! Even though this morning there will be an incarceration while the folks go visit the g'parronts. They never went last week between mom's cold and dad's tooth. At least mom will come home with my sugar snap peas !

Hope to see you two at the milonga tonight - fun and frolic ! Even though it's hard to keep up . . .

  Hi Pearl and Silver,
Just to let you know Spot has already set the time and place on the calender page.

It'll be this Sunday at 1 pm now. Things just seems to change quickly here.

Thank you Sugar for putting Mario's Celebration of life on the calendar page for all to view.

This way every birdie can come and join in.

The Castle Page number is 276082 and it will be in the Ballroom this Sunday.
I'm guessing they only have 1 ballroom ? I don't want to get lost.

I guess Spot knew the Ballroom page number, that's good. :)

Since he said it starts at 1 pm EST I'll try to set up early so that if some birdies can only come in the morning it will be okay. I'll be there with my flock to welcome them. :)

Here's a vote for you my sweet friend !

Love & hugs,

Pookie

  Hi Pearl & Silver,
mom did have a better day today and it was beautiful outside today. It was really nice and warm...around 75º and sunny too. Mom got outside and trimmed seven of her roses today and she is hoping that it is nice again tomorrow so she can finish up the front yard pruning. The parronts are going to go and buy some flowers tomorrow for the front yard.

The gardener was here yesterday and did all the mowing and trimming etc. He came back today to put a weed killer on the lawn and on the flower beds. He is really good at keeping the weeds out of our yard and it doesn't cost us extra for him to do that either, another reason we like him.

Gentle wing hugs, love, and a vote from your protector and friend...Chica ♥

  Hi Pearl & Silver
Thanks, my mom says I'm doing better at taking pics.
We need to put our weather together and then divide it in half! That way it won't be too cold or too hot!
Today I went for a ride in the car with mom. I saw some sun and asked if we were going to Florida? She said no but we should be. Dad was using some smelly ant stuff in the basement so, we had to be gone most of the day.
Very sad news today for the Pitts-Hays Eagle parronts. The remaining egg cracked open but was not viable. Mom eagle is so sad and staying with the lost baby. I hope to see them again next year.
Hugs

  Hi Pearl and Silver
This morning was another dark dull grey dismal rainy day here and the highs for the day will be 41 while the lows will be 34,right now its 39 degrees and we have more snow coming our way for tomorrow.Mom got up and cleaned our cages and room and then she fed us our warm bean mix,Dixie refused to eat as usual and Mom tried putting animal crackers in his dish but he still wouldn't eat.Then she got some things together,along with the trash and recyclables and dad drove her and Dixie to Nana's sometime around 10:00am.The PT nurse had just left when they got there.Dad took the trash from his car and put it in Nana's car and then he left to go home and Mom set Dixie up inside in the cage Nana has for him. When Mom got there both skin bro and Nana were eating breakfast and Dixie was invited to join them on the table and did he have a greyt time.He ate from Nana's dish and had some eggs and even grabbed some of her toast,she even put some in the dish that Mom had brought for him.Mom left him with Nana while skin bro and she went to the dump,then to the bank and to Roche Bros grocery to pick up some things that were on sale and on the three day sale page.Mom and skin bro got the items that Nana wanted and then they came home and Nana was getting lunch ready of salad and sharp cheddar cheese,warm rolls and rice pudding and tuna.Mom did a quick vacuuming of Nana's rooms especially her bedroom where our cousin Trixie II sleeps she's got more feathers everywhere there and Mom helped Nana put some of the laundry she did away.Skin bro and Mom relaxed with Nana in the tv room for a while then he brought Mom home so she could make dad his dinner and get us all our late day snack and clean our cages out for the night.
We only wish we could send you some of all this rain and now the snow again!We think its time for the warm weather to be here now,we are so tired of winter and all the cold weather!
Oh Mom had all she could do to not dive into those donuts when they brought them home,she had one with Nana with the coffee and it tasted so good but if she keeps that up it'll look really good on her hips and gut too!LOL!
The three tiels all open their wings wide for a big group tiel wing hug and hold on tightly.They know Angel Mario is at the Rainbow Bridge but it feels like he's still there with them as part of the embrace and know they will keep loving him no matter what.
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm tiel hugs and soft tiel kisses and a vote for you too! Loving you always and forever,Peepers

HERE IS THE PAGE NUMBER, 239094

THE TIME MIGHT CHANGE AS SUGAR IS WAITING TO HEAR BACK FROM AUNT ROSE. SHE WILL HAVE TO GET THE ADLER FLOCK THERE AND SHE IS BUSY WITH NANA. AUNT ROSE IS VERY WORRIED ABOUT DIXIE, HE IS TAKING IT THE HARDEST AND IS NOT EATING. I THINK WE NEED TO PRAY FOR DIXIE TO BE STRONG AND GET THRU THIS AND START EATING.

WE HAD SNOW TODAY, ONLY ENOUGH TO COVER EVERYTHING. OUR HIGH TEMP WAS 35 DEGREES AND WINDCHILL WAS 21. ANYTIME THERE IS A WINDCHILL ITS COLD OUT. WILL BE THIS WAY ALL WEEKEND.

Always nice to have some body in your hair so you can do either with it too.
Mom has been knitting on hats some and she is starting to like doing it but only does it at home cause scared to take it anywhere and lose stitches and would sure be up a creek then LOL.
Today was a laid back sort of day. I think mom was just tired from the two trips to Pittsburgh with daughter in law and the grand this past week. I did get my bath and blow dried and sure like the blow dry its the best of the whole thing. It got colder here again, Mom says March is for flying kites but the month is almost over and sure could of never flown any kite on any days in March. Hopefully next month will start to warm up some. “When I count my blessings I count my BC family” Leaving a vote with my note, hugs from Gus (RIP Chi chi)

The way I see it if the wood was pushed to close to your birdhouse and it's within a beaks reach you can chew with it not being your fault.
We are having lots of sun today which is nice but it did stay cold.Looks like next week will start warming up and hopefully this time it will last . Have a good evening.

Yes, I got my chicken thigh bone, and it was still 80 degrees when Mom put me to bed at 7:30 last night. And I think today just might be even hotter. They were calling for a high of 89 today, but it is 90 out there right now. Looks like they missed it again. Mom took me out for my sunbath as soon as she got home from zumba a few minutes after noon, and it was so warm she sat in the shade and put my outdoor carrier in partial shade. So I still got my sun, but it wasn't nearly as hot as in the full sun.

Mom is in another battle over insurance and medical bill, only this time it is the hospital's fault and Anthem Blue Cross has been struggling with them since Mom's surgery last August! She spoke to a very nice young lady a few minutes ago, and they finally received the records (125 pages!) of the procedure they have been requesting since the whole thing started. Hopefully this time it will be resolved.

Meanwhile I am perched on my mom's knee dictating my blogs. Since she is wearing shorts, she is hoping I will not have an accident. She had better hope I don't get adventurous and climb all over her like I did during yesterday's blogging...Whoops! Here I go!!

  Hello Pearl, Hello Silver~
I hope you are having a great day! It is going to be interesting to see what Jade wants to get into once she is mobile! Did the skin sis get those plastic plugs to put into the wall sockets? Mom uses them around my cages!heheheheh I really can't reach the socket but since I get very enthusiastic when I shower, mom figured it would be a good idea to keep them covered!

Mom's store only had about 8 feet of the summer toys out and an endcap with bubbles. The have the kites out too. They got some new supersoakers called Zombie soakers! Don't know what that is all about!

You guys enjoy the day and stay cool!!

  Hi Pearl & Silver
Birds do a lot of activities that may seem smart, but how much of their behavior is instinct instead of intelligence? Ornithologists are continually studying birds and learning new information about their brains, how they think and why they behave why they do.

Deciding just how smart birds are depends on how intelligence is defined. Birds exhibit a wide range of intelligent behaviors, including good memories, extensive communication, planning for the future and remembering the past. Some birds can solve problems, and others have been observed playing – both activities that indicate more than just basic instinct. The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines intelligence as:The ability to learn or understand or to deal with new or trying situations or the ability to apply knowledge to manipulate one's environment.
Do birds do this? Scientific studies indicate that yes, birds do learn, and every backyard birder knows birds are capable of adapting to new environments and conditions. Quantitative measurement of bird intelligence is difficult because birds cannot take intelligence tests or attend classes to be measured with their peers. Observations and studies of birds are revealing that birds may be far more intelligent than initially believed.
Bird Brain Structure
Brain size and structure is not an automatic gauge of intelligence, but it can be a clue. Birds may be small, but they have a proportionally large brain compared to their overall body and head sizes – in fact, bird's brains are similarly proportioned to primates. Studies of birds' brain anatomy also suggests that while the structure is different than that of mammals' brains, birds may have a higher degree of connectivity between the sections of their brains, which could indicate more intelligence and faster reasoning than previously believed.
Evidence of Bird Intelligence
The best indication of how smart birds are is direct observations of birds acting intelligently. While some observations have been made under scientifically controlled circumstances and through laboratory experiments, other observations have come from casual birders who notice their favorite birds behaving in peculiar ways, ways that seem planned and premeditated.

Haha, I love seeing that big eyed baby with that big smile! She's so cute! I know, I'm repeating myself, but she is...
It was snowing when mom left the center today! Where is spring??? She had the bunny room, but there was only one bunny in there, so it was quick. She also cleaned the main aviary and the rolling aviary with the doves in. There were 5 doves and 13 pigeons today! She got the areas cleaned, got all the birds and the bunny fed, then went in the kitchen and did dishes for about 45 minutes, until her hands got too cold and she had to take a break. The gas guys are still up there digging, so maybe some time soon there will be gas again. The dryer turned out to be gas, so the interns are taking laundry to the shelter or to a local laundromat to clean. It's pretty much a full carload when they go, too.
Tonight is the last night of the fish fry at a local church where mom goes every Friday in Lent for dinner for her and Jeff, our neighbor. Mom told him to savor it tonight, as it will be a year before he tastes anything this good again.
I hope you are having a good day, getting spring like weather, and of course, enjoying cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Pearl, Hi Silver
It's Blue and Jewel.
Mom got busy and cleaned all of our cages yesterday. While we were out of the room dad cleaned up the floor. This took most of the day. After all the cleaning, mom and dad went out to dinner with mom's parronts to Romano's Macaroni Grill. They had a special express dinner for $9.00. There was plenty of food and it was really good. Then they went to the Brea Mall and dropped off mom so she could attend a special event ($$$) and dad took mom's parronts back to the house so they could drive home. Then dad went back to the mall to pick up mom. They got home just in time to tuck us in.
Today will be clear, with a high of 92 and a low of 60. A plumber is going to be here this morning to fix some bad pipes under the house so we'll be in lockdown.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Blue and Jewel.

Thant is so nice of your mom to offer more instructions about knitting in the round. If she doesn't mind...we would love to learn more!
It funny....my mom being a tech geek has all kinds of cameras. She loves cameras. Each camera does something different. But now....with the technology of today's phones....she hardly ever uses her cameras. Bet skin sis can get some great pics and videos of grand baby with her iPhone!
Why does my mom have two phones? Because she is a tech geek.! Years ago ...it was because she wanted a back up phone. But now days ...it because she likes different the different iOS that the phones have. She loves her iPhone.......but that isn't her main phone . The iPhone is extremely user friendly........and has the best apps. It's her....fun phone......and had a great camera.
Her smart phone...the Samsung Gallaxy S5 is her main smart phone. The iOS is different from the iPhone. iOS is the operating system. That iOS is Android. My mom has had the Galaxy phones since they came out. She really likes that phone too. And the camera is great! My mom is a happy tech geek! Heehee! So now you know!
Have a great day!

This always happens right before Easter, glad we didn't put our deck plants out yet or we would be bringing them right back in.

Well daddy practically threw his phone at mom yesterday and told her to cancel it. He is sooo upset that he is getting text and that for some reason he can't call a stupid radio station..... really .... mom thinks he is being childish, bull headed and just downright nasty. Mom barely even talked with him yesterday and she had to take him to the hospital for shots in his neck. Then this morning he was ranting over how the Dr didn't do what he said he was going to do ... SIGH. No winning with him. Sigh, Sorry to be such a downer today but its pretty much affected the whole house. Have a great day for me. V4U. Hugs.

TGIF ! Except for it's still raining . . . but hey, it's better than snow !

Mom is running out of soft food ideas for daddy - all he keeps saying is once his tooth is done he wants to go out for a big fat juicy steak ! Where does that leave me ? I prefer for the parronts to eat here at home so I can mooch off them !

Since mom's vacation starts next Thursday, so will the spring cleaning - I am preparing my list of supervisory duties . . . she can't wait ! Can't wait to clean ? I just don't get her sometimes - jeeesh ! All I'm waiting for is the extra fun ! Are the schools off there too ? It'll probably be busy at mom's store . . .

Mom got the three of us all fed and cleaned,swept our room and then she got my dad some breakfast and then after a few more quick pick ups around the house my dad took her to Nana's where she met skin bro and Mom helped Nana get her shoes and socks on,and skin bro got her down the two steps out into the garage and into the car.Mom folded up the walker and skin bro put it in his trunk and they went to the surgeons office.When they got there all the employees were outside and the fire alarm was going off,then the fire engines came and they went into the building so Mom,Nana and skin bro waited out in the parking lot for awhile,Nana was supposed to be there at 12:45pm but by the time the fire engines left it was after one.Skin bro drove up to the front of the building and he helped get Nana out of the car and Mom got her walker and they went into the building while skin bro parked the car.They had to wait another 20 minutes or more until someone came back into the office and then the receptionist gave Mom five pages of info that needed to be filled out,she helped Nana fill them out and then she had to go down and get another x-ray taken then after that she got seen by the surgeon.Nana is healing nicely and she has another appointment to see him on May 6th for a 6 week check up.Then from there they went to DQ which finally opened up in Falmouth and they all had a Blizzard,skin bro had a grasshopper mousse,both Mom and Nana had one with all fruit in it.Nana was hankering for some Honey Dew donuts and skin bro drove to Cotuit to the shop there and they made some Barvarian cream donuts up fresh for Mom as those were Nana's favorite so they got a dozen donuts there while Nana waited in the car,then they went to Stop&Shop to get some bananas and salad mix.It was pouring rain hard while they were out and Mom was so cold from getting wet in the rain.They went back to Nana's and skin bro got Nana safely back into the house and Mom made coffee for everyone and they had a donut and coffee,shortly after that skin bro took Mom home as it was well after 5:30pm and Mom still had to go home and make dinner for my dad.When Mom got home everyone fairly much ate but Dixie didn't touch any of his food at all,he didn't even eat the animal cracker that dad gave us all for a snack.Mom tried everything to get him to eat and he refused.Nana told Mom to take Dixie with her tomorrow when she comes there to help with the trash,Dixie always eats there and he may be missing his time with Nana and the car ride.
Oh how I wish that we could have those temps and you're so right if we could only mix our temps with yours then we'd probably have the perfect weather for sure!Mom is still preparing four bowls of food for us instead of three.She has to get it through her head that Mario is not here anymore.She keeps trying to tell herself that Angel Gabbie has him now and he's doi

Come visit me, Gabbie, Kallie, Peepers & Dixie.

Well, I think it's an adorable pic of baby. I think she needs a pink bunny like I have.
Oh yes, it's truly amazing to see all those birds in flight!
Today was an all day snow. This is a good day to hang out on the perch in my fuzzy robe and slippers. I hope we get early spring weather for us ... middle of April. Where is the sun???
Hugs

Not sure if that is the same picture or not but sure is lighter and can see the grands big smile ..boy is she changing in looks too.
Skin sis has wavy hair...used to be in curls but the grands dad has very curly hair so the grand got it too.
This morning mom was washing clothes and the bed sheets. She was making stuff towards supper and then she wiped up the floors so that all kept us busy …well mostly mom ..I just watched. It was another Pittsburgh trip for mom and DIL with the grand and was raining here so took longer too. Dad was home so we hung out till mom got home again. “When I count my blessings I count my BC family” Leaving a vote with my note, hugs from Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Pearl Hi Silver
There have been a few times where I have managed to sneek off and stay quiet.My mom does the same thing with getting frantic and starts looking for me and finds me hiding in a corner and of course chomping on wood.
Spring has dissapeared here and has gone back to winter.In the upper 30's today but last my mom checked the real feel was at 29 and tomorrow the high will only be 31.
Yes I agree the 80's you are getting is way to warm for spring temps.Squawk with you later.

  Hi Pearl & Silver
Well, Mom got me outside for my sunbath at 9:30 this morning, and it's a good thing she did. It was already so warm she had to move to the shade in about 10 minutes. We hit 91 today, and I think it was already in the 80s that early.

I got pretty good Mom time today, although she deserted me mid-morning to help her friend Judy with a couple of papers for her Masters courses. She is really doing well, and she says she can thank my mom for polishing her writing to always get the good grades. Mom says her ideas are what are getting the grades. Sounds like a mutual admiration society to me!

Then Mom went to get her therapeutic massage, and she stopped at the library on the way home and the car wash so Gloria looks all pretty. Now what is missing from this scenario? You guessed it! She forgot to eat lunch again! I think there is some chicken in the fridge, and if so she will have a piece and I will get a thigh bone. Yippee!

Today is the last day to vote in the Milonga Picture Contest, so be sure and get over there and cast your flock's 5 votes for the day. There are several very close races going on, so you wouldn't want to miss a chance to vote for your favorites. Polls close at midnight EDT. You can find the milonga avatar in either my aviary or the one on the Calendar Page.

  Hey Pearl and Silver!
I need your help buddy. I've asked King Flitzer if we could use the Castle grounds to hold a Celebration of Life in Little Mario Adlers name.

He says okay so I will need some help with the decorating.

Can you and your flock give us a wing?

I'm gonna be asking more friends for help in making this a nice memorial for Mario Adler, Dixie's lil frother.

Pookie bows and says the Castle Ballroom it is!

Can you help spread the word for us?

Mom only has her phone thingy and its a little slow at times.

I'd really appreciate all the help we can get.

Mario was a sweet sweet little guy and he will be sorely missed, especially by me and my flock.

I'll gather some friends and well decorate the ballroom.

Thank you so much again for all your help and for letting us use the Castle Ballroom.

We just hafta spread the word so that no one gets left out.

Sending big birdie hugs and a vote.

We want to hold it this coming Sunday.

Love,

Pookie, Laka Aolani and Angel Sallykins

I hope you guys are having a great day! Look at Jade!! She is so beautiful! That smile certainly brings a smile to my beak! Looks like she has the crawling thing down pretty well! It's going to be a whole new world when she gets up and starts walking!hehehehehe I wonder if your skin sis is ready! It's going to be so much fun!
Sorry I keep missing days but we are doing spring cleaning around here. It is slow going because mom keeps having to stop to clean up after Mandy or help her get to her blanket. She was 2 hours late for breakfast yesterday but mom said that Mandy just felt like sleeping in! She is still eating and following mom around so it's all good!
We have sunshine and are going to hit 70 today! Just beautiful but mom has to go back to work tonight and probably won't be off again until next Thursday night. Lots of special sales for Easter time! It's a last minute kind of holiday since I don't think most people want all that candy around the house! Too tempting!!hehehehehe
You guys enjoy the day!

  Hi Pearl & Silver
Bald Eagles are nesting on all three of Pittsburgh's major rivers! Who knew the day would never come when Pittsburghers would be cheering for the Eagles…Bald Eagles, that is!

It has probably been more than 250 years since Bald Eagles last nested along Pittsburgh’s three rivers. In the 18th century, suitable nesting habitat in the form of mature tall trees was stripped from the hillsides flanking the rivers to meet the lumber and fuel demands of a rapidly growing human population in the area; second, industrialization beginning in the 19th century led to extensive unregulated pollution of the rivers, which decimated fish populations that eagles feed on; third, beginning in the mid-20th century eagles (and many other birds) showed signs of succumbing to the unintended side effects of widespread use of the pesticide DDT (developed for use in World War II) which eventually caused chronic nesting failure for the species. As recently as the mid-1980s, there were just a few remaining nesting Bald Eagles pairs anywhere in Pennsylvania, all of these in the northwest corner of the state.
One nest, located on the Monongahela River in the community of Hays is the most famous because a web camas been set up to view the nest. millions of people are viewing the nesting activity. Last year this pair successfully raised three eagle babies. this year they only layed 2 eggs. one of the eggs had a crack in it and the mom tried to keep it together but when the dad eagle came to sit on the egg he saw the crack and threw the egg out of the nest. during a recent snowstorm the mom eagle was totally covered in snow while incubating the single egg
The Bald Eagle,has made a tremendous comeback throughout its range in the lower 48 states. Its recovery is due to enforcement of federal laws protecting it from persecution, the banning of DDT, which bio-accumulated in eagles and other piscivorous (fish-eating) birds, eventually causing complete reproductive failure through the thinning of their egg shells to the point that eggs simply broke when parent birds tried to incubate them; passage in the same year of the federal Clean Water Act, and, direct recovery measures taken by our Game Commission, which brought nestling Bald Eagles from healthy populations to hacking sitese when the state’s breeding population was down to just a few nesting pairs. Similar efforts by game agencies in surrounding states also have contributed to the rapid increase in the number of nesting Bald Eagles in Pennsylvania. By 2000, there were about 50 known nesting pairs of eagles in the state; as of 2012, more than 200 nesting locations are known for Bald Eagle in Pennsylvania, including nests in almost every county!

  HI PEARL & SILVER!!!!
Yeah our Dad does the same when going to buy new appliances always checks on line and gets the reviews about the item...This microwave that we just purchased came from Home Depot because he found the best deal there and they shipped it to the house free of charge and that was by UPS...There are not many of those individual specialty stores around anymore...Guess to many big name stores with better prices are what took over...We are now having a rainy day here with temps maybe going up to 50...We certainly will take it though just as long as it not any more snow...Hope you are having a great Thursday...Pecked another V4U...With many birdie wing hugs to both of you...Love you 2 buddies, Stormy :o)

  Hi Pearl and Silver
She sure is a cutie pie, even if the pic is a little blurry. She looks so happy! Mom will try later to put those pics up.
Well, today is going to be one great day for us birdies, after mom gets done scrubbing the cages, that is. She has a few errands, but they won't take long, and the day is ours! We love days like this, they are rare this time of year. The museum will be super busy from after Easter until mid June, so this may be our last whole day for awhile.
I hope you are having a fun day today, getting some springlike weather, and of course, lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

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

  Hi Pearl, Hi Silver
It's Blue and Jewel.
Mom and dad discovered another theater that has free movie day. It's a little farther from home but not much. So yesterday they saw another true story called McFarland USA. It was a great movie.
Mom and dad's friend was moved to another rehab place. This is a small privet home that rents rooms for rehab people. He will be there for about 30 days more than he will finally go home.
Today will be clear, with a high of 94 and a low of 62.
Hope your day is good.
Hugs,
Blue and Jewel.

My goodness, tornado season already, they can hit any of us at any time! Have a great throwback Thursday dear friends, and give our love to all in your safe and secure home, see ya tomorrow...
