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!

  Hi Guys
I hope your mom doesn't have to work on Easter, and can be home with you and the family.
Mom meant to share this on Monday, but forgot. Remember when she was at the parrot class on Sunday? Well, she learned something new there that all of us should be aware of. You know that zinc is toxic to birds, but did you know that there is zinc in those rubber balls, footballs, and all other soft rubber toys? Mom didn't know that! No more of that stuff in our cages for sure.
Today mom did the mammal nursery and the groundhog that's out in the first RVS cage. The groundhog is looking pretty good, should be gone soon. There were several squirrel babies in the mammal nursery as well as one injured adult possum. Many of the squirrels are still being hand fed, but a couple have their eyes open and are eating on their own now. It seems so soon!
Hope you are having a nicer day than we are. It got down into the low 20s last night, and it's slow to warm up today. The sun is out, but it's still really cold. I hope you get lots of love today, too. Hugs, Falco

Well after a full day of pouring rain here it ended up with about 2 to 2 1/2 inches of snow on the ground and temps only in the low 40s during the day....No flood areas around where we live....Thankful for that.....Yes, I guess the stores are quite busy selling anything that is Easter related right now....Hope that your weather stays on the mild side and not that extreme heat especially if you are not getting any rain at all...Have a wonderful Wednesday....Just pecked a vote for you....With many birdie wing hugs to both of you.....Love, Stormy :o)

  Hi Pearl, hi Silver.
It's Blue and Jewel.
Good news. The chimney is ok. No cracks. No broken bricks. The only thing wrong it the spark arrester on the top had a broken clamp but dad's friend used some heavy wire and now it's solid, too.
Dad did go and buy two giant pizzas from Papa Murphy's. They make the pizzas but you take them home and bake them yourself. But when he tried to turn the oven on it wouldn't work. The igniter was burned out and the oven wouldn't come on. So, all three had to go out to a pizza parlor. Today dad's going to see if he can fix the oven himself.
Mom is the one that got bit. She refuses to follow dad's instructions on how to handle them. She just reached into the cage and grabbed the oldest one and he bit her hard. Serves her right. They don't bite dad.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Blue and Jewel.

  Hey Pearl and Silver!
Yeah....our moms are not into sewing things together once they have spent the time knitting! Jeezzzzz!
When mom used to knit with the church knitting group...they would knit 5 inch squares that were sent to Zimbabwe . The women there would then sew the squares into blankets for the orphanages.
If mom did use the small squares....the car seat would look really nice. Just need to see just how many more squares are needed!
Well, mom doesn't know how or crochet. She Googled adding a border to a blanket. Don't know it it's going to look ok.......if not the blanket will just end up with curled ends. Mom has seen patterns like that...
Glad your mom got her jacket back!
Yeah...the hot summer must mean southern CA!
Have a great day!

What a beautiful day we are having for our trip. Everybirdie is having such a good time. There is an activity planned for each night on the boat.

Last night, there was music and refreshments, just a time of fellowship for all of us to get to know one another better. Refreshments will be served all day today as well.

Tonight, we are going to see the movie Rio 2. There will be fresh popcorn and drinks for everybirdie.

  Happy Humpday fellows !
We woke up this morning to a little less than an inch of (gulp) SNOW ! What's that about ? It's April 16th ! After it being near 70 for a week, now today is only in the 40's. Good thing mom didn't get any of her annuals yet - freeze warnings (right now it's 31) till 10:00 and again tonight !

Mom is counting the minutes till her upcoming long weekend - actually it's a little more than long - off tomorrow at noon till next Wednesday. Yesterday was one of THOSE days - the kids are so excited about vacation that it was like pulling a train with her teeth trying to get anything done !

Hope you have a great day :) Hugs from Cookie

  Hi Pearl & Silver,
there are lots of different birds of paradise...they are just stunning birds.

Dad needs to clean the sunroom floors as during the winter some water leaked in along the window wall. Also when mom washed the windows with the hose more water seeped in. Dad sealed the outside of the sunroom so we shouldn't have any more leaks. Now that the fountain isn't in the sunroom anymore mom wants to rearrange the furniture in there...hehe

Usually when there are 3 eaglets, the first hatched kicks the last hatched out of the nest. I hope this doesn't happen.
My mom was lucky to meet Blue and flock and parronts in birdson last October. She had a wonderful time.
I’m back! Mom was late getting home tonight. But, it’s ok because she came home with a bag of chew toys for me. We had two days of snow and cold. Today was 24 with the nights down to 11 degrees. I hear that mom saw grass and some flowers downstate must be nice!

  Hi Pearl Hi Silver
My mom has seen some of those sales here where you buy 3 tires you get one free . Don't think she's going to find much better than that so she just might have to go with that.
Rule abuser has used quite a bit of her vacation time so if she does get terminated whatever time she doesn't have left to cover the rest of the holidays she will have to pay back.
Nothing is flooding to bad yet but some places are very close to being at that level. Total snow fall yesterday was a inch.Still pretty cold today but should start warming up again soon. Have a good night.

MMMMM! Chocolate! That does sound good;)

It has been rather dull here today and is wanting to rain but so far hasn't. It is a good day for a snooze.

I would not like to have Sunny sitting near me when I am getting a scritch! He and I don't like that as it is too much competition. That guy just has a way with mom! He would chase me off and I would do the same if it was the other way around! We are very covetous of our head scritches:)

Hope you guys have a good evening;)

Yep your right the male ekkies are green and the females are red. oh they did want to know if I talked too and when I did tell them by by am sure they never heard me anyway LOL.

Here we go again tonight with problems with BC so going to take a long time to get done again! It was cold and snowed here today and very windy. Good thing I wrote a letter to winter that you can read my mantra on the bottom of the page LOL. Well today when mom washed clothes some water came up in the floor drain in the utility room after the second load. Dad called to get a plumber that has a camera so we can see for sure where the problem is. Dad is thinking it might be the maple tree he planted about 3 years ago and if it is then he will just pull it out and the red maple tree will be gone for good. Dad thinks the roots might be causing the problem so will know hopefully when the plumber comes on Friday. “Dear Winter, I am breaking up with you. I think its time I start seeing other seasons. Summer is hotter then you”. Left you a vote~~ hugs, Gus. (RIP Chi chi)

WE TRIED TO WATCH THE ECLIPSE OF THE MOON LAST NIGHT. IT WAS A CLEAR STARRY NIGHT UNTIL 1AM WHEN THE ECLIPSE STARTED AND THEN THE NIGHT SKY QUICKLY FILLED UP WITH SO MANY CLOUDS YOU COULDNT EVEN SEE THE FULL MOON. WE WOKE UP TO LOTS OF SNOW FLURRIES THIS MORNING. ITS BEEN A COLD MISERABLE DAY. TONIGHT ITS DROPPING DOWN TO 22.

THE PLUMBER CAME THIS MORNING TO FIX THE GARBAGE DISPOSAL. HE COULDNT BELIEVE HOW BAD MOMS HANDS LOOK AFTER WORKING TRYING TO REMOVE THE MEASURING SPOON FROM THE DISPOSAL AND TOLD HER SHE NEVER SHOULD HAVE TRIED THAT. HE WORKED AND WORKED AND COULDNT REMOVE THE SMALL MEASURING SPOON. HE FINALLY PULLED THE WHOLE DISPOSAL OUT AND PLACED IT ON THE KITCHEN COUNTER AND WORKED AND WORKED SOME MORE. FINALLY HE TURNED TO MOM AND ASKED MOM TO ONCE AGAIN TRY AND REMOVE THE MEASURING SPOON SINCE HIS HANDS WERE TOO BIG. (MOMS HANDS LOOK LIKE SHE HAS BEEN IN A 10 ROUND BOXING MATCH WEARING NO BOXING GLOVES) MOM ONCE AGAIN ATTEMPTED TO REMOVE THE MEASURING SPOON. NO LUCK! THE PLUMBER THEN SAID IT LOOKS LIKE YOU WILL NEED TO BUY A NEW DISPOSAL BUT LETS TRY ONE MORE THING. HE REMOVED THE DRAIN FROM THE DISPOSAL AND THE SPOON CAME RIGHT OUT. THE PLUMBER SAID THIS WAS A FIRST FOR HIM AND WILL NOW KNOW WHAT TO DO NEXT TIME HE EVER FINDS SOMETHING LIKE THIS AGAIN. TOTAL PLUMBING BILL $118. FOR $100 MORE MOM COULD HAVE HAD A NEW DISPOSAL. ANYWAY EVERYTHING IS NOW WORKING AND MOM WENT TO THE HARDWARE STORE AND BOUGHT A DRAIN COVER FOR THE SINK. WHAT A RELIEF THATS OVER.

Well, I did get my mac and cheese yesterday, so I was a happy camper. Love that stuff.

Well, it's a very quiet day around here, and I have to say I don't mind. Mom had no errands to do, and she is spending most of her day with me. However that also means she has no news for me to report. Hopefully this is one of those no news is good news.

  Hi Pearl and Silver
We woke up to another dark rainy day here again with the wind blowing hard.It stopped for a bit during the day and has now started up again with the rain for tonight.Its been one of those dark sleepy days here for us!
Mom is trying to look for something different to bring for Easter.They are all going out to IHOP for breakfast on Easter Sunday as Nana is too tired to make raviolis this year,she did make some Easter Bread today and Mom is going to try and make some different cookies to take for dessert for later on in the day.
Kallie sure does love to eat but he still hates having his beak worked on!He's still new at this beak trimming thing,Dixie knows how to behave as he's been having it done for 15 years now!
That sounds really awesome to have an eggstended patio to cover some of the lawn space!The rhododendrons have taken over our front lawn and we also have the hydrangea there,but mostly our lawn is mostly all roots underneath and weeds,Mom had wanted to have a nice lawn put down but the money always winds up going for something else more important!
My Mom can usually delay the updates also and it sounds like the same thing that happens to her,if she should get off the puter and do something else then its too late to get back on.
Our weather is going downhill really quickly,from this rain things are getting colder again and we may see some more snow!This is really getting old!We get teased with some nice weather and it only lasts a few hours before it goes back to the cold and winter stuff again!
I want to thank you for going over to NTT,even if you guessed a few its greyt!And the theme!I sure do hope you win this weeks juke box and special picture!
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

  Hi Guys
Bree didn't get here yesterday for our birdicures, so mom is hoping she makes it today.
Mom went shopping in the snow today for Easter dinner. She got all the stuff except for salad makings and the greens for wedding soup. She'll get those late in the week. It is snowing today, but not sticking, so we have hopes the daffodils, tulips that haven't been eaten by the deer, hyacinths, and of course forsythia and lilacs will survive. It's going into the low 20s tonight, but there should be a warmup by Thursday. At least that's what the weather guys said. Today we have mom for the rest of the day, but she will be scrubbing our cages down, which we all hate. Just when you get stuff where you want it, along comes somebody to move it and clean it, then you have to start over again. I say phooey to that! Hope you are having a good day with nice weather.

I hope you are having a great day! Absolutely nothing of interest going on in my world but I did want to come by and say hello!
We have been doing more spring cleaning this week and it's really not very exciting at all!! Mom scrubbed the sliding glass door and the screen! It's so bright and pretty and I have an excellent view of the flags out in front of the complex! It's always windy around here so they are always flapping! They have red tulips on the flags and I enjoy watching them wave in the wind!
Your derby picture is just fantastic!!! I really gotta get working on one for myself! I want to wait until after Easter because I love my Easter picture with Gabbie!
I hope you are enjoying your day and that window cleaning is not the most exciting thing going on in your life! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  Hi Pearl, hi Silver.
It's Blue and Jewel.
Yeaaaaa!! Today we get our release papers and our three day lockdown is over.
Yesterday mom and dad did their wine run to Temecula and this time they stayed and ate dinner before attempting to drive home. That worked. The traffic was light and they got home around the same time as if they had left earlier and fought the traffic.
Today dad's friend, Bob may come over and help dad with the big ladder so they can go on the roof and check the chimney for damage. When that's over, dad's going to pick up a couple of Papa Murphy's pizzas for dinner. That's ok with us cuz we get the pizza crust.
Yesterday we wrote that we had no aftershocks in over two days. About ten minutes after sending the messages we had another aftershock and we all felt it. Just goes to show that you never know and you must be prepared.
Hope your day was fun.

Mom never made one of those circular rugs either. Didn't want to have to sew it all together either!
The finger knitting video is kind of interesting. They made a flower for a head band for little girls.
Oh those knitted squares are small. Still...it would be a good start on a car seat blanket.
Mom still has to figure out how she is going to put a border on that baby blanket she is making for a friend.
Oh no...the manager moved all of the jackets? Dad your mom find hers?

Did you see the forsythia in front of my house ? It's all in bloom and looking so pretty - just in time for Easter ! Mom brought the camera out after dinner when she and dad went for a walk. One day when it's not cloudy she'll take pictures of where they walk - right along the river -

Have a terrific Tuesday ! love Cookie

  Morning kids
I may be a mommy's boy, but pops spends a lot of time teaching me new things to say. Mom is more fun, and likes to play.

Come visit me, Jetta.

  Hi Pearl & Silver,
Harley does love it out there especially when mom is out there too. The parronts are happy with the way the garden is shaping up, the grass is getting greener and mom's plants are doing well. The fountain is the perfect height for Harley to get a drink. The water is clean so it is fine for her to drink. Nice clear running water and a big back yard to play in...what more can a doggie want?

Mom can hardly wait to see the completed scarf with the surprise...

The Bird of Paradise birds are even more striking, very interesting...mom is trying to remember the name of the program...

Beautiful day, dad is almost finished his painting project around the sunroom. He did hang two planters on the pergola so now mom needs to get some more flowers for them. Mom transplanted the big pansy to a bigger pot, it had outgrown the fish planter. She sure hopes that it survives. Mom is so happy that her peonies seem to be doing very well, she wasn't sure if they would come back this year or not.

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

  Hi Pearl and Silver
Yes most people dont know what an eclectus fid is and then want to know if I am a boy or a girl so mom always has some explaining to do LOL. Nope mom didnt see anything at the yard sale but think we went mostly for the walk which was great with me!
Mom and dad went to see moms sister and her husband a little while today. Mom hasn’t seen her sister since last year when she left to spend the winter in Arizona so they were happy to see one another again. I took a little nap while they were gone so that worked out good for me too. “Dear Winter, I am breaking up with you. I think its time I start seeing other seasons. Summer is hotter then you”. Left you a vote~~ hugs, Gus. (RIP Chi chi)

Come visit me, Gus --Chi chi ♥ RIP & Chi chi RIP my sweet girl..

  HI Pearl and Silver!
Yes, that is true. We sure didn't expect it though:)

It was so nice and sunny here this morning and mom opened the screens again and by late afternoon it got all cloudy and dull again. We are all sleepy again.

No, I didn't get a scritch as I startled Sunny off mom's hand and that scared me too so we all flew back to the cage tops after making a few rounds;) I did get some good ones tonight though:)

Hope you have a good evening:)

hugs,

Cleo

  Hi Pearl and Silver
We woke up to a fairly sunny day here but the wind was awful strong.Mom brought all her area rugs down to beat out and to hang on the deck rails to get the air and some sun on them but she went out 10 minutes later and they were all over the yard,so she had to beat them out again and then take them inside!Mom is going to wait to prune the hydrangea and the rose bush when its not so windy out!There were loud trucks outside our window all day today sawing down trees and putting them into the chipper truck,our street is beginning to look bare with all the trees they're taking down,they're getting them down so they don't interfere with the wires so the power doesn't go out again I guess as we lost power again yesterday morning!
Mom has some recipe books of his and then she got this one on line after watching it on one of his shows,we can't see him anymore as he's on a channel we don't get now.
I do believe you're right about Kallie sticking his tongue out like that,so Mom would quit but he got fooled,she just kept on until it was the right length for him to be able to eat properly!
Dad has a leaf pile out back that's been there for years and its slowly turning into compost from the bottom,its gotten so high that he can't put anymore leaves on top of it as its a big mountain right now!Dad got a landscape guy to come again this year to clear the leaves off the yard and this time he's going to rake the leaves and the landscape men will pick up the leaves for him and take them away!
Mom is looking for a proper perch for us but can't seem to find the right size in any of the stores she goes into for our birdhouse.Right now she's got us each our own perch that fits side by side in our birdhouse,I don't like Mario and he doesn't like me,but we can get along sharing the one birdhouse without any problems.
That same thing always happens to my Mom at night when she is trying to get our blogs out,the computer decides to give updates right in the middle of a blog,how annoying is that?Its surprising that Mom is nearly all caught up with our blogs today as she could send out blogs in between each chore she was doing today.
I do hope that you will enjoy my frothers NTT song choices for the week!Skin sis was happy to help with the special prizes also!
I think that the two of you will be the winners in the derby contest!You really outdid yourselves this year on the pics!
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

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

  Hi Pearl & Silver
I tried my best to feed my mom yesterday, but she realized what I was up to at the last second and turned her head. So although I was only able to leave my gift of food on her cheek, I got darned close!

We had a nice sunbath today, but Mom had to sit in the shade the whole time. Our high today was 86, and I think we were pretty close to that while we were out there. I like the heat, but Mom just can't handle it, especially when she just came from the gym and is already hot and sweaty.

After my mom finishes my blogging we are going to share one of her lo cal lunches. I am hoping for mac and cheese, but butternut squash ravioli would do just as well. Mom says it will be whatever is on top of the stack in the freezer. Don't you think I should get to choose?

  Hi Pearl & Silver
My mom keeps checking for any good tire sales hasnt seen anything to spectacular yet.She just might buy two here and then another two later on.
The smart thing would have been for rule abuser to just cancel her vacation when she found out she would be serving the 5 day suspension.Now if she gets terminated she will have to pay back vacation time.
We got a lot of rain over the weekend some areas had over 5 inches just crazy.We got some snow last night and were getting flurries off and on today sure got much cooler here.
Like the derby hats you guys picked out they fit you very nice.Hope your week is off to a good start.

  Lifespan of a Diamond Dove
The lifespan of the diamond dove is different in captivity than if living in the wild.

In captivity, the diamond dove usually lives about 12-15 years. With proper care, they can even live into their 20's.

In the wild, however, diamond doves only live 3-5 years.

  Hi Pearl, hi Silver.
It's Blue and Jewel.
We're back. Dad completed his self defense course with flying colors. He said it was like army boot camp. We're glad he's home.
Nothing fantastic happened over the weekend, except that we were in lockdown the entire time. And today? Still in lockdown. Mom and dad are going to make their Temecula trip today. Oh well, I guess one more day won't hurt.
Also, we have gone two whole days with NO AFTERSHOCKS!
Hope your day is good.
Hugs,
Blue and Jewel.
