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 Pearl & Silver
V4U today. Well, we had a few warm and sunny days. Yesterday the rain returned along with the cold weather. There are freeze warnings for the weekend. 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. LOL :) The wild birds have returned to our yard, hopefully we'll be seeing some nests soon. The wasps are back, too. LOL :) Have a good day. From, Marigold

  Hi Pearl & Silver
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.

  hey fellows
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 . . .

Have a lovely Friday :) Hugs from Cookie

  Hi Pearl and Silver
This morning was a dark,gray,dismal dreary rainy day with the temperature highs of 53 and the lows of 38. 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

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)

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.

  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,

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

  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!

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)

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.

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.

  Hi Pearl & Silver
Well we survived our first storm of the season. A town south of us, MOORE, was hit again ... mom says she wouldn't live their if you paid her a million bucks. Dad watched a tornado form over our house and then we got hit with pea sized hail ... we were lucky. Others were hit by baseball sized hail just 3 miles from us.

Daddy then shut off his phone and says he wont use it again because someone apparently added him to a group message and it was blowing up his phone. Daddy doesn't text .. at all ... so he was very annoyed and ready to just cancel his phone .... mom we see how he feels later. Have a great day. V4U. Hugs.

  Hi Pearl & Silver
Is that a new pic? ... very cute.
They are very please with the bird count ... seeing how this is early. My parronts went up there one time and it was amazing. The birds follow the Mackinac Bridge to cross to the UP (Upper Peninsula).
Woke up this morning to freezing rain. Then it turned to snow coming down very heavy. The roads were really bad. Dad was out there plowing. Now it's going down to really cold again. My sunglasses and flip flops have been put away. I have a pot of hot chocolate ready, come join me.
Hugs
Chyna

The condo where we live isn't to big so usually pretty easy to keep track of where I'm going. Sometimes though all it takes is a split second for my parronts to look away and I can sneak off.I usually give myself away though by calling out a high.Yes I still hunt toes my mom's more than my dad's.
The weather didn't get to awful there was just a little bit of snow outside this morning.Its usually the other drivers that makes my mom more nervous then her driving in the bad weather.
Yes the picture is not bad at all for a older phone. Happy humpday have a great night.

  Hi Pearl and Silver
Wonder if the grands hair will come in naturally curly. The one grand was not much hair for two years and came in naturally curly. Skin sis got tired of People calling her a he LOL.
On Monday and Tuesday the one grand had try outs to get on the middle school softball team. She was so excited and scared too but has wanted to play on the team since she was in grade school even, Mom kept thinking of her all day after school and hoping she would have her dream fulfilled. Finally last evening the grand called and mom was scared to ask what happened but finally the grand yelled, “I got it Gram!!”. She will still be on the travel team too she has been with for quite a few years now but will play for the school also. “When I count my blessings I count my BC family” Leaving a vote with my note, hugs from Gus (RIP Chi chi)

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

Hah! I got my sunbath yesterday after all!! After Mom got finished with my blogging at 2PM, we went back into my room and I flew right on to my outside carrier and climbed in and chirped at Mom. So she took me outside, and it was just barely still warm enough. However we got a good 25 minutes before Mom thought it was cooling down too much. Then today we got out there at 11 (no fooling around from me today!). Good thing we got out early too, because it was pretty darned warm. It was forecasted for 84 degrees today, and Mom thinks it may have even been warmer. Now tomorrow they are saying 88, which is better than the 90 they were predicting. We will still get out early though.

Mom goes to the gym from 4-6 today, so she is spending as much time as possible with me before then. She is buried in her kindle when we are in my room, but all I have to do is land on her shoulder and she gives me all of her attention.

We had the Methi Malai lunch today, and Mom's curiosity finally got the best of her and she googled it. It is an Indian dish, which didn't surprise her. I love the kidney beans, but I insisted on grabbing one before Mom blew on it to cool it down for me. Boy, did I drop that quickly! Once it cooled off, Mom gave it back to me and cooled off a couple more. Yum!! And I got blueberries with my breakfast, which I liked for the first time! I ate them all, and then we had a piece of the cookies Mom baked yesterday for mid morning break. Life is good!

  Hi Pearl and Silver
Last night's dinner with Gene was a success, he's actually a pretty good cook. Mom also loved spending time with her niece and nephew and their mom, Aunt Ginny. The food and conversation were both quite good, and champagne never hurts anything, either.
Mom is back! She did a tour with preK kids this morning, which they had scheduled for an hour. She wishes the visitor service people would stick to 45 minutes for little kiddies. It's too hard to keep their attention for an hour. After the tour, mom stopped at Trader Joe's for a few things, but now she's back and ours for the rest of the day. We know she's planning to read a few chapters in her book, but other than that, I think we will be getting all the attention we so richly deserve. I hope you are having a good day, getting some spring like weather (It's up to 50 today here), and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

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

  Hi Pearl & Silver
HAPPY HUMPDAY
OBSERVING NESTS (PART2) from yesterday

7)Search carefully: It is critically important that we avoid damaging nest sites. Nests that have yet to be discovered are particularly vulnerable. When searching for nests, move slowly through dense foliage, being careful not to dislodge any nests. The nests of ground-nesting birds, such as Killdeer, Ovenbirds, Bobolinks, and many waterbirds, are difficult to see, so tread lightly and be cautious around potential ground-nest sites.
8)Be wary of nest predators: Avoid leaving tracks that can direct predators to nests. Nest predators are everywhere—on the ground, in vegetation, and in the air—and many are smart enough to watch you, so be careful that predators such as cats are not following you! Also try to not damage or trample vegetation that could expose nests.
9)Minimize disturbance at the nest: It is important not to startle a bird as you approach the nest; this may cause it to accidentally knock out eggs or young when it flies off. Before approaching the nest, try to see if a parent is sitting on it. Whenever possible, wait a few minutes to see if the bird leaves on its own. If they do, this is the ideal time to check the nest. If a sitting bird does not leave on its own, do not force it off the nest. In this case, you will need to come back later. Remember to keep each visit brief.
10)Never handle birds or eggs in the nest: Eggs can be easily cracked or small nestlings injured, and there is no reason to touch these fragile younglings, despite how cute they may look. Small nestlings are remarkably helpless and may not be able to crawl back into the nest cup if displaced, even inside of a nest box. Children observing nests should always be under the supervision of an adult.
11)Don’t leave a dead-end trail: If you plan on visiting the nest frequently, try to take a different route away from the nest site than the route you took to reach it. Walking to the nest and back along the same path leaves a dead-end trail that can lead predators directly to the nest.

  Hey Buddy's
Tell your mommy not to worry the baby will grow lots of hair... They always do even if it comes in late heehee..
In either case she is a beautiful baby and your mommy is so proud of her !!!

Vegas was just what my mommy needed. It was good for her to escape the skin sibs...
The parront's enjoyed the ride up there and back.
They stopped at this store in Barstow and bought two big bags of pine nuts and 5 sacks of roasted green chili.
My mommy's wondering if pine nuts are good for us tiels.
She won't give them to us until she finds out...

It's hot today ,hot tomarrow and that major heat wave is on it's way. That means hot to hotter...
It looks like we will be getting 8 months of summer weather.
What's up with that ???

That's terrible that the Sharks are not doing so well.
Maybe we should step in and help the coaches !!! Heehee !!

Have a Happy Humpday
Stay cool and comfy
Love your buddy

  HI PEARL & SILVER!!!!
Well the grand baby is a real cutie and we hope you will be posting a picture of her standing soon..Mom wanted a new microwave when they remodeled the kitchen but Dad said the old one still is working...Not for long(Ha Ha) looks like Mom won sooner then she thought she would..Yes you are right they are not all that expensive and really can find some nice ones with good features on them...Our stores to shop in around here you must travel about 20 miles before you find a Wal-Mart,Shop-Rite, Price-Chopper, K-mart, etc. and if you want some place like Sears and other department store you need to go to a mall and that is about 40 miles or more....Hope you are having a nice Hump Day Wednesday...Just pecked a V4U..With many birdie wing hugs to both of you...Love you 2 buddies, Stormy :o)

  Hi Pearl, Hi Silver
It's Blue and Jewel.
Mom and dad finally went to Temecula. Mom insisted that dad said that he wanted to go during the week, not on the weekend. Yeah, with all the trucks, rush hour traffic and freeway construction? We don't THINK so! It took 2 hours to get there and was too late to do what mom wanted to do. Going home only took 1 hour.
Today will be clear, with a high of 87 and a low of 61.
Hope your day is fun.
Grey is still in the works.
Hugs,
Blue and Jewel.
