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!

  Hello Pearl, Hello Silver~
I hope you are having an awesome day!! You guys are so handsome! I just love all these pictures!!
Nothing exciting going on here. Merlin and McKenzie are taking a nap so I have a few minute of peace and quiet! Mom has been working on training McKenzie to stay away from Merlin but he comes over to her so he is not helping at all. He wants mom to pick him up and let him sit on her lap. When mom does that McKenzie figures she should sit on moms lap too! She is not a lap dog size anymore so it can be painful for mom! I just sit in my play cage watching the whole thing and thinking to myself that mom should have stuck to feathered pets only!hahahahahahaha
Mom got the ad done early but then had to figure out how to sign a huge stack out of beverage dispensers! There are dozens of them and all different prices! Guess it's a big thing this year!! They are bigger than the tea jars, which they have also, and are on stands. I suppose it would be good for a party????
Enjoy your Sunday!

  Hi Boys
You two looks so handsome in uour tux's so ready for the prom.
The trivia can be fun and you can even submit your own questions to be added to the game. Mom says some of the questions you get on the game are so stupid then some are so hard.
Sunny again today but once again very windy at least that helps things not feel to warm.
That's what my mom said too everyone at work will have melted away to nothing that by the time they will probably get the air up and running no point to it it will be time to turn the heat on. Guess having no air isn't as bad as no heat. Have a great evening.

Greyt pic!! You both look very spiffy!!

Well, I may or may not get outside for a sunbath today. It is only 69 degrees out there right now, with a forecast high of 71. Mom thinks it might be warm enough around 2PM, but she just checked and it isn't there now.

Meanwhile the entire house smells so good with all the aromas from Dad's enchilada pie. And it hasn't even gone into the oven yet! Dad is making two of them, but he is baking one after the other because our oven is big enough to do them at the same time. That means the house will smell wonderful for a very long time. And that is definitely a good thing.

C'mon ladies!! We have four more gents entered into the Prom Pic Contest than ladies!! And last month's contest the men outnumbered the females as well. Where is your BC spirit?

  Hi Pearl, Hi Silver
It's Blue and Jewel.
ADT was here bright and early on Thursday and had the alarm system reprogrammed in less than an hour, at no charge. There's actually not much else going on. Mom cleaned a bunch of our cages while dad cleaned our room. We didn't think it needed cleaning but we were out voted. Today dad is putting the nest boxes back on Blue and Jewel's cage, Skye and Rio's cage, and Cammie and Bourke's cage. Maybe there will be babies this year.
Yesterday mom made her famous Cheesy Garlic Artichoke Dip for a Memorial Day BBQ at her brother's house this afternoon, so we'll all be in lockdown again.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 75 and a low of 55.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Blue and Jewel.

Wow, don't you two look handsome! What great tuxes!
Yesterday it was such a beautiful pool day. It was warm, sunny, and the water was wonderful. Mom didn't do any laps, but she did get in the water, which is a step in the right direction. Mom's sister was too tired to go, since they got home after 1 in the morning, but the other people mom knows there did show up, so she was able to chat and read. Those are the main reasons for going, haha.
Today mom will be there again, then later, her daughter will take her out to dinner. Mom's son in law has gone to Ohio to see his mother, and her daughter thought it would be good for the two of them to get together. Mom likes that idea, especially since she doesn't have to cook.
I hope you are having a pleasant spring day, with lots of sunshine and plenty of attention! Hugs, Falco

  Hi well dressed Prom guys-Sunday love from Jenny
I can't begin tell you how nice it is to be back home, but I think LaLo is driving dad crazy with her insistence on being held, but she is so sweet with him! Dad bought us fresh new veggies and fruit yesterday, it will be nice to get some of that yummy stuff, apples, carrots, romaine, but the big dummy forgot grapes, he will however come in to sit and share a banana with peanut butter on it! Sorry to admit we don't care much for the Indy 500, but we will check in on it from time to time! Love each other, and be safe, and give our love to all in your Holiday home, see ya tomorrow...

  hey guys !
Another hot sticky one here in NY - mom and dad went to the flea market - didn't come home with any fleas but mom found a few little things, daddy ate a funnel cake . . . and boy did they left just in time ! The line of cars waiting to get in was almost 2 miles long ! Now, that's crazy ! Then they went and ordered a new tv for g'pa for Father's Day. He still has a huge boxy analog tv and right now all he really has are his books and tv and g'ma - it's sad cause he was always busy. He did woodworking, and was always building something, he practiced on his trumpet (he was in the Navy Band), loved to work outside . . .

Today is work around the house day - laundry, BACK DECK, and playing with me ! ! Have to get it done today since tomorrow is supposed to rain :( And rain is perfect for doing nothing ! ! with me ! Then hopefully it'll cool down a little . . .

Have a great day - love Cookie

  Hi Pearl & Silver
Cori is ok. the candy has now been moved.

dad was pointing out to mom all the things that need to be weeded. mom says she is quite aware of the weeds and will get it done. it only looks nice for a few months and its great exercise so mom doesn't mind. its very hot right now so we can't sit outside and because of the weeding mom can't sit there with us.

our computer was really bad last night and the ball kept circling and circling and finally mom decided to just unplugged the computer and it took her 20 minutes just to get her computer to go to sleep before she unplugged it. it was pizap who caused all the problems because they told mom to disable her ad block and when mom did it frazzled her computer. they have more ads on pizap than they had on bird channel.

we hear the whippoorwills tonight. not too many but still hear a few mom was afraid they wouldn't come back with all the new housing development going on where they live. hopefully they are ok.

They talked about the turtles tonight on the news. To stay away and give them space. I have no idea how long it takes to hatch.
Well, the sick 3-4 year old was with his dad who let him do as he pleased. I guess kicking and banging on the tray (attached to my mom's seat) was ok. Also the sneezing and coughing without kleenex or covering his mouth was ok too. The older kid across the aisle was yelling and jumping on the seat while banging on the luggage bin. We had at least 12 children from baby to 7 years old on the flight!
Glad mom is home.
Today was a better day for my mom. She said I was a good nurse.
It started out sunny and warm but by the afternoon, we had severe t-storms and several downpours. Then of course it dried up and the sun was back, very Florida.
And, George gator is back in his pond my dad saw him .. all is well.

Yes hats and scarfs are an easy project to start with and so are dishcloths.
Last night while we were doing our blogs the internet quit so I didn’t get to finish a lot of my blogs. Dad called the internet company today and they put us on another line but this has happened three times before too and its just a band aid on the fix and never lasts long. If we arent on then the band aid came off again and will be back as soon as possible LOL. This is my blog from yesterday : Today was another pretty day here. This morning mom was getting coats out of the closet in the hall and laying them on the chair. When mom gets a coat out of there I know she is going to go somewhere so I started to watch her really close. She had more then one I could tell that and she laid them on another chair. I went to investigate and mom said she was only going to wash them and hang them out to dry. Later she showed me them all hanging on the line out the window. I got a bath this morning. Then later we went out for my sunbath since it was such a nice warm day. Actually I got two sunbaths today cause we went out again before dinner. “We don’t meet people by accident. They are meant to cross our path for a reason” Left a vote for you ~~Hugs from Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  to be an uneventful day here but both Mom and dad are home with us today and we are so happy about that.Because of the pollen we're not sure if we'll be able to get outside for a sun bath and shower today…
Mom decided by late morning to do a wash and get it outside as she may not even be home tomorrow as she heard that skin bro wants to take her to Nantucket Island for the day and so she had to quickly get a wash in and she got it hung outside and it dried nicely!Dad must've have a hundred pairs of socks.If Mom doesn't happen to go out tomorrow she'll get the sheets and towels and rest of the laundry out then.

Those lemon zucchini muffins really sound delicious and my Mom would love to try them!She makes zucchini squares but adding the golden raisins and blueberries really sounds healthy and tasty at the same time!
We love the flake cereal eggspecially Cranberry and Blueberry Morning.And you're right about Chex cereals.Mom gets fruity pebbles for Dixie because when he comes out of a seizure the sugar somehow helps revive him faster.Mom will have to see if we like that bran cereal.She never thought of giving it to us.
I think our climate here isn't conducive for melon type plants or even pumpkin though Mom has tried several times and only gotten leaves.They have fresh compost at the landfill that you can take all you want.You have to come with a container and shovel and get it yourself.They make it from the leaves and piles of grass clippings and lawn waste that people bring.Both Mom and Nana usually stop and fill up on as much of it as they can shovel and load in the car.It really does good with the plants in the garden.
The schools here start the last week of August now,they used to start the Wednesday after Labor Day.The kids here have to have 180 school days.It must be hard for parents going on vacation to have to make all their plans before mid August.Here the last two weeks in August is the last Hurrah for all the out of Staters with kids.I know in Connecticut that school must start sometime in August also.
I can't believe that you're still hot there.But I can agree that 80's are so much better than 90's heatwise and humidity wise.Its good that your dad will make sure the house is cool for when your Mom comes home from work.It's awful to have to drive in the heat,even though you have the a/c on in the car,in some spots the sun can shine right on you as you're driving.
Verizon called Mom today and it was a recording of course and they said that if the problem was fixed to say yes and if not not to do anything so Mom didn't say a word,then they told Mom that the problem will be taken care of on the appointed time and day,whatever that meant?Mom is so hoping that its not going to take much longer to find where the wires have been cut!
That's really awesome for your Mom to get your dad something that he wants even if its not on sale.
This morning was another bright sunny and warm morning.The highs for the day will be 74 the lows of 62 and right now its 71.Mom got us all up and cleaned our cages,swept our room and fed us our bean mix.Then she got dad his breakfast of blueberry waffles and coffee and dad went out to mow the lawn.Mom is gathering the laundry to wash tomorrow and get on the line.Then she will work on more chores that have to be done that didn't get done yesterday while she was out.The pollen here is so bad right now and everything is covered with yellow,our deck,cars that are out there,the roads and Mom opened all our windows to let the warm air pass through and now everything will be covered in yellow pollen dust.Its going

That sounds about right with needing 6 pieces to win trivia pursuit it's the same eith the trivia crack game. You need to answer 3 cirrect questions in a row to go for a piece or spin the wheel and land on the wedge where you can automatically answer a question to go for a piece.
Pretty absurd that the place in the kitchen that has air still doesn't have any. Now it's sounding like they have to wait until the start of the new fiscal year which is July 1st to get approved for funding for the part they need to fix it. Then once approved they can order the part everyone jokes saying summer will be over before they can get the air working.
Started off gloomy here today then got sunny and pretty windy and warm. Now that its evening time we have thunderstorms rolling through. At least mom got all her running around done earlier when it was nice out. Have a good evening.

Mom's date to her senior prom was her best friend's older brother. They doubled with her friend and went to dinner first and didn't make it to the prom until 30 minutes before it was over. So she doesn't know much about Proms either.

I am having a nice Saturday. Sure, I lost Mom to her grocery run with Dad this morning, but she did bring me home sugar snap peas, new grapes and bananas. So I let it slide.

Then we had chile relleno for lunch. Dad brought it home from work, because his company had a retirement luncheon for the Pres of the company and it was catered by a local Mexican restaurant. He brought home four of them, so Mom and I shared one yesterday and one today, while Dad chowed down both of his for dinner last night. I was not sure what it was, but after a couple of tentative nibbles I dug in. Tasty stuff! And now he is working on his famous enchilada pie for the holiday weekend. It takes two days to make, so it will be ready tomorrow and there is enough to eat for two days as well. I love the stuff! Right now the whole house smells of roasted chilies...yum!

After lunch we went outside for a nice long sunbath. It was very quiet for a Saturday. No pedestrians to scream at, and my two little white doggie friends didn't come by either. I got bored after about 45 minutes and made it clear I was done, so we came inside.

Now I am here to say thank you all for your entries to the Prom Court Pic Contest, and surprisingly we have more gents entered than ladies!! So come on, you beauties and get in those prom dresses and bring out the camera.

  Hello Pearl, Hello Silver~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's been fun around here. It's fun because I live with a dopey dog and a dopey cat! They are pure entertainment for me!hehehehehe
Merlin decided to sit on the arm of the sofa right next to my play cage. It's far enough away that I can't get him and if he sits still I don't really pay any attention to him. McKenzie brought a toy over for him but he's not interested in that! She brought her new one over for him and he didn't even look at it! McKenzie got on the sofa a sat down right next to him and knocked him off!hahahahahaha She leaned over against him until he went down! He was hissing! Hopefully they will both go to take naps very soon!
Merlin was dumped by a neighbor because he messed in the house. Of course the guy did not have a litter box for him so don't know what he expected. Dad found him out by the street and asked at the office and they told him what had happened. It didn't take long at all to teach him what the litter box was and he has never messed in here.
Mom talked to her manager this morning and he wants her to work the whole week. Audits were not good this week but none of the bad ones were moms. She has an ad Sunday, Monday and Tuesday and then clearance Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. She will get Wednesday and Thursday night off. They have to pay her double time for Monday so that's okay!
I hope you enjoy your day! Should you get bored, come on over. We can make some popcorn and watch the show!!!

  Hi Pearl and Silver
There were about 10 tour groups altogether from that school, and it looked like they were divided evenly, half were all boy, and half were all girl.
After mom walked the dogs this morning, she watered everything again. There were supposed to be showers last night, but they never materialized. Jeff brought over a huge bag of onions and mustard greens, so mom cooked that for him while she was cooking our bird food. He also brought over some sunflower seeds to plant. One of them is called Teddy Bear, and it's the cutest sunflower in the world! Mom hopes it grows here.
Today the pool opens, YAY! So mom has to pull out the bathing suits, towels, and cover ups, as well as the SPF 8 that she starts the year with. I know, 8 doesn't sound like much protection, but for mom it works. Her sister does a 16, and one of her friends at the pool has a 75, but that seems like overkill.
Anyway, mom will be at the pool today, then when she gets back and showered, if she's not going to dinner with her sister, she'll be ours for the evening. She isn't sure, since her sis just got back from the Alaskan cruise.
I hope you are having a wonderful Saturday, with sunshine, warm temps, and lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  morning guys
Well, the parronts got home a lot later than expected after taking g'pa to his appointment yesterday. Everything is healing well, he's just angry that the dr. told him he can't drive for 6 months ! That's a long time ! But at least they came home with my yummies :) Now this morning off they go again - flea market time :( Mom loves to poke around - daddy loves the junk food !

I wonder if the ground will be wet though - we had dumping rain yesterday afternoon - so, no, of course mom did NOT get the back deck done yet ! She is still promising either today when they get back or tomorrow . . . sigh - what's a bird to do to get outside ?

Have a great Saturday ! love Cookie

  Hi Pearl & Silver
I agree ... someone should have told those children to behave and not cough and sneeze on people ... the parronts didn't! Mom spent the day in bed sick!
The turtles are roped off and they have turtle watchers going around and checking on them. Don't know when they hatch but would be wonderful to watch.
Our weather for the next 8 days is 90 degrees and 75 at night with a chance of a little rain at night for a few days ... not bad.
Mom is sick, thanks to the kid on the plane coughing and sneezing on her for 4 1/2 hours! I'm wearing my nurse's scrubs and I'm on duty 24 hrs for my mom.
Hugs

  n a regular spot.Nana kept looking while Mom went into the bank.Nana didn't find it.From there they went to Falmouth to Home Goods to look for some curtains for Nana's newly painted rooms but didn't find much of a selection there,so they went to Walmart where the had more curtains but no selection of colors or the style Nana wanted.Mom bought 3 bags of charcoal and a step stool and Nana bought a few things from there they went back to Mashpee to Stop&Shop where both Mom and Nana got Hood's Ice Cream on sale for $1.88 half gal.Mom got Frozen Yogurt and this time there were no limits on how many you could get so both Nana and Mom got 4 each.They even got a small container of maple bacon gelatto for $1.25.They each got a pizza for Saturday night dinner and Mom got lots of broccoli rabe with smoked provolone cheese for $1.89 among other bags of frozen meals that were on sale.Nana got some of the frozen bags of meals also.Mom got some chips for Dad's lunches that were on sale and several other things.From there they went back to Nana's house and when they came to Nana's driveway Mom had to park across the street in the field because Verizon was there in their truck.The Verizon lady got out of the truck to tell Nana that the problem was on the street somewhere and she thought it was the landscaping company a few doors down the street.Several other people were having the same problem.They had two trucks at Nana's house checking.Now they have to send out more workers to locate just where the problem is so they can fix it.They think someone cut the underground wires somewhere.Mom started to unload the groceries by running back and forth across the street and then when the Verizon truck left Mom got to pull into the driveway and garage to finish unloading the groceries.She helped put Nana's ice cream in the freezer while Nana made them a salad for lunch,it was after 4:30pm.After they ate Mom helped Nana finish loading her dishwasher and got it started for her before she left for home.The traffic was brutal and she had to wait at the end of Nana's street for a good ten minutes before someone stopped to let her out,the line of traffic was bumper to bumper all the way down 151.It was slow going home with all the cars and vehicles that are here now.It's the unofficial start of summer here and both the stores and the roads really show it.When Mom got home she started dads dinner,while dad unpacked the car,Mom put away the groceries and then cleaned our cages,dad had already given us our snacks.She finished the dinner dishes and now is able to sit with us and type out our notes.Mom is so tired and her feet hurt!She couldn't wait to take her shoes off!
The three tiels all open their wings wide for a big group tiel wing hug and hold on tight for a long time.No birdie ever wants to be the first to let go!
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 too!Loving you always and forever,Peepers

  Hi Pearl and Silver
Oh does that zucchini bran version muffin with added blueberries and golden raisins sound really good that Aunt Karen makes!My Mom usually will make zucchini pizza,chocolate zucchini bread and like your awesome Mom said cakes too.Oh don't you just love cereal?We get peanut butter cheerios and some other healthy cereals.It really keeps us busy for a while!Us tiels have a healthy system and we are always regular!hehehehe!
Mom has tried broccoli in her garden before and only got leaves,and even a pumpkin and got leaves also!Did your dad actually get a watermelon from the seeds he planted and cantaloupe?Mom tried eggplant one year and had actually eggplants growing but the varmints ate them off the plant on her!Mom loves making eggplant Parmesan!My dad hates eggplant but the skin sibs love it.Mom has planted corn and got as far as the corn cob forming but the squirrels got that just as it was beginning to get bigger and close to picking to eat.
How awesome that the schools there are out early.I think our schools don't let out for summer until mid June sometime.Depends on how many snow days they had off this winter.
Those hot temperatures are just too hot to have to deal with this early.Here this weekend is the unofficial start of our summer and we are going to be getting some hotter temps but where we are on the coast,its going to be closer to the mid 70's or so and our nights are still cold,we are at 65 right now and Mom has her coat on while she's working on our notes.Mom opens all our windows during the day and closes them at night.I sure do pray that you don't get all that oven like heat there.That is most uncomfortable,wish we could send you our automatic a/c night air here!
This morning was a bright sunny morning with our highs for the day of 72 the lows of 57 and right now at 7:00pm its 72 but a breeze is blowing out there right now making it feel much cooler.Mom got dad off to work and then she collected all the rest of the trash and loaded them in the car.Then she got us up and cleaned our cages and swept our room and gave us our bean mix.Then she left us with our radio on and took off for Nana's.When she got there,she unloaded her car with trash and recyclables into Nana's car and then brought Nana's trash and recyclables out to the car,then Mom vacuumed Nana's whole house downstairs,Kitchen,living room,bedroom,bird room and hall and bathroom.Then Nana made breakfast for Mom and herself of two waffles and some tea.Mom called Verizon and got that stupid robot again who wanted to cancel the appointment and had to yell AGENT at her to get a human on the phone,and when she did they told Mom that they would be there between 3-7:00pm and that the problem was on the outside and that Mom didn't have to be there.They left after that for the dump and when they were there Mom realized that she had forgotten to take Nana's kitchen trash.From there they went to the bank and Nana realized she didn't have her handicap placard so they had to park i

  HI PEARL & SILVER!!!
Since we are having some great warm temps here and sun so having the pools opening this Memorial Day weekend will be a big treat to many of people that will be here getting their summer home ready...Like taking care of the grass and the community dues are to be paid by the end of May...Many have not been here since last fall when they closed them for the winter...
The little grands girl or boy today are so smart today with the phones, tablets, etc...They know more about movies, dances and songs of today then some adults.
Hopefully Dad will get putting the pictures from his camera on the computer soon....Yes, we will keep you updated on the cute and active little Sunny Baby B/G...
Sure hope you are having a great TGIF and Memorial Day weekend...Pecked a V4U...Many birdie wing hugs to both of you...Love you 2 buddies, Stormy :o)

  Hello Pearl, Hello Silver~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!! Mom had to take Jennifer over for her check up today and she was gone 3 hours! The doctor was a bit late and then Jennifer had to wait to get her lab work! Mom knew it was going to take that long but it's hard for her to sit for so long in the morning since it makes her tired!!
Oh Merlin is anything but aloof! He loves to sit in everyones lap and get lots and lots of attention. He has always been like that. Dad wasn't working when Merlin first came here and got use to all the attention. When dad went back to work it was hard on him! Mom makes sure he gets his playtime everyday but when McKenzie wants to bet petted he wants it too!
They are going to do the fire alarm and sprinkler inspection next Wednesday. They do it once a year. Ian has to work Wednesday as I suspect your mom does too, because of the baby ad. If they don't show up before mom has to take Jennifer to work or pick Ian up then I'm going with her and McKenzie! We can lock Merlin in the bathroom and he'll be fine. The noise of the alarms upset me so mom doesn't want to leave me alone. Maybe dad will be home by then but we are not sure about that!
I hope you guys enjoy the rest of your day!!

My mom thinks she recalls that in trivia pursuit you would roll dice then move your piece what ever way on the board and then whatever square you landed on told you the category.
Still pretty humid and warm here and still no air conditioning for the breakroom at moms work. Sounds like its going to be at least another month or two before they get any. First they have to get approved for the funding for it then the part has to be ordered so its sounding like they can kiss the summer goodbye with having no air. Really stinks when the temps get to warm to early hopefully this is just a short spell and not what summer has in store for us. Have a good evening.

  Hi Pearl & Silver
Mom went to the gym this morning, and she found out that Becky has given her 2 weeks notice. It works for Mom because Becky's last day at the gym is 6/9, and Mom's last prepaid session is on 6/8. Of course, Becky told Mom she planned it that way. Anyway she worked on Mom's shoulder, but she agrees with Mattea that a cortisone shot is needed. Mom lasted thru 40 minutes of zumba, which is a slight improvement, but she is hoping to get back to the full hour after the shot. Unfortunately doc is on vacation, so she won't be able to see him until 6/3. Guess she will just have to be careful till then.

Meanwhile it has finally gotten warm enough for a sunbath here, and I was out by 1:15 (silly mom insisted on showering first!), and we stayed out till it was time to come in and have lunch: chicken tamale with Spanish rice. I did not consider the tamale to be food, but boy did I ever chow down on that rice!

Finally I would like to remind everyone that we have a pic contest for the June Prom Milonga. The deadline to enter has been extended to 5/30, because we don't have enough entries. And I have it on good authority that if you need help with your pics, that Kaji and Dixie's moms would be happy to help. So get out those tuxes and prom dresses and pose for the camera!! And thank you to all the birdies who have been kind enough to already sign up. You can see their names on the Milonga Page #165848.

  Hi Pearl and Silver!
Sorry for being silent the past couple days. Mom has been sick for over a week. Her best friend has contagious pneumonia, and since they are always latched to each other, they made mom go to the hospital yesterday to make sure she didn't have it. Thankfully she didn't, but she does have strep throat. So they gave her medicine, and hopefully she'll be better soon! I hate that she's sick, but love coughing and sneezing with her. LOL! (:

I'm enjoying my last few days in the castle! I was thinking that maybe we could have a Disney movie marathon tonight.... the movie room has a huge screen! I'll get the popcorn popping! (:

  Hi Pearl and Silver
Today mom posted some pics of animals at the center. She apologizes for the sideways downy woodpecker pic, it was right side up before it got here! Those are the babies that were in the tree on Saturday. The other pic is Cecilia, our resident barred owl with her foster baby. She's a first time foster mom, and she's doing great!
Mom cleaned the recovery room again today. The falcon has some pep in her step now! She's doing quite well. There is also a red tailed hawk in there who broke its beak. About half the top beak is missing, but we think with time, it will grow back. This bird might be a very long term resident, though. Mom put the raptors into carriers while she did their cages, and the poor hawk didn't want to get back out. Mom had to get the huge gloves back on to get it out of there and into its bigger cage. Usually birds want to get out of the small carriers!
There are 2 ducks, 2 turtles (the one with nail polish and another one), and the mom possum all in there too.
We had our pedicures today. I'd like to report that we were all good, but the boys both were screaming bloody murder! Millie and Lily remain the best of all, and I was even cooperative today. I hope you are having a great day. It's hot and sunny here for now, but showers are predicted for later. Mom is hoping that's true, because things could use more water than she gave them yesterday. She still has to move house plants outside for the summer, but probably will get that done today. I hope you get lots of well deserved attention, cuddles, and scritches today. Hugs, Falco

  Morning sweet P&S-from Jenny & Ms LaLo
We are BOTH back home where we belong, this morning dad woke up to the most pleasant sounds of sweet bird calls and chirps in our home! Aunt Denise brought Jenny also and spent most of the afternoon cleaning Jen's area, cage, and play stand! It has been so long since he heard those wonderful sounds of I Love You, and What's a'matter Chuck from Jenny and whistles of every variety from Ms LaLo! Dad can not thank Denise enough for all she has done for us, she is such a peach and what a human dynamo, thanks to her, our home is complete once again! There is no measurement for our appreciation, but just thanks seems so shallow! Have a Greyt Memorial Day W/E, I know we will, and please give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

Forever love from Jenny, Ms LaLo, Christy, Ziggy, & our very happy daddy

PS~Please be safe if you travel, lots of crazies out there...

  hi guys
Today is really and truly a TGIF ! Mom is off today and Monday, and even though today will be busy - g'pa goes for his follow up with the surgeon, and then she PROMISED to finally get the back deck set up for use - it won't be too bad. I've got two new paper towel rolls to find perfect spots for . . . so I'll be busy too - till it's time for me to start my supervisory duties . . .

The weather has been so nice - yesterday mom was on recess duty and hated to ring the bell for the kids to line up and head back in . . . We're into the 80's and it's really like summertime here now. Good thing there are only 14 days left ! ! !

What's up at your perch for the weekend ? Is mom working ? Will there be Jade time - she must be getting big now ! Mom is looking forward to tomorrow morning's flea market - she doesn't usually find much, but loves the atmosphere and the poking around . . .

love Cookie

Oh yes, we are used to the warmer weather down here already. The plane was chilly but the sick kid sitting and standing on the seat behind mom was the worst. The dad let him kick the seat and pound on it. All the time he was coughing and sneezing without covering his mouth!
Well, we probably wouldn't have seen the place where the eggs are buried either ... good thing they rope it off.
I made it to the 30K ... thanks everybirdie!
Today was errand day for my parronts. I stayed home and had a good nap. Looks like I will be taking care of mom. She is getting sick. The child behind her on the 4 1/2 hour flight coughed and sneezed on her the whole time. Have a g'nite.
Hugs
