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!

Sounds like grand had a good time at her party!

  Hi Pearl & Silver
thankyou for your kind condolences on our doggie. the house seems empty with her passing. lMonday night the bad budgies, Boo Boo and i paid our respect to our beloved household member by being eerily quiet. the parents are having a very hard time coping. the doggie was very happy on the car ride to the vet and wasn't scared at all since she spent so much time at the vets to begin with. dad told mom it would be worse if they waited until doggie was near death. with kidney failure organs shut down very quickly and it would have been a matter of days. mom kissed doggie on the nose and through her tears told doggie goodbye and i love you and then doggie licked her face and was gone. mom and dad would have gone to the ends of the earth to try and save doggie.

love Cori, Boo Boo and for once the not so bad budgies

  Hi P&S
My vet told mom that the ground hogs do come in different colors (she has since paid greater attention and has seen a few) just like people have different colored hair. Same species.
The ground hogs are very shy. As soon as they hear the door open, they are gone. It is amazing how quickly they can move.
One time dad was watching from the garage, a cat showed up on the other side of the door so dad *hissed* at it. The cat jumped about 5' turning in the air to look where the noise had come, ready to fight. The ground hog, meanwhile, scurried into the berry bushes.

  Hi Pe
Kitty in the Underworld has a greyt finish, and the Cormac/Amanda book is really terrific. Mom also hopes there will be a series about them coming up. Nothing definite in the book, but it sure could be a possibility. Their story is far from over.

I behaved! Got out at a few minutes before 10 for my sunbath, which was fine because it is overcast today. Not really any sun, but the UV still comes thru for the feathers and is a lot more comfortable although still a bit humid. And of course, it is still in the upper 80s, but that beats the heck out of the triple digits we had yesterday.

It is Wednesday which means Mom goes to the gym in the afternoon. Hopefully today she will remember to eat, because on Monday she totally forgot lunch and dinner. Why doesn't that woman get hungry like a normal human? At least I got plenty of nutriberries and my pellets, but I really like sharing her food with her. Yesterday we had a nice roast beef wrap, which was greyt except for all the stupid spinach she piled on there. Needless to say she was wearing it on her shoulder by the time we were done eating. Today I think there is left over pasta. Yay!

And don't forget that my good buddy, Panther, begins his BOTM campaign today. We have spent some quality time coming up with an amazing campaign, and I know you will all love it. Don't won't to spoil the secret though, so you will just have to wait and see....

  HI PEARL & SILVER!!!
So nice to hear from you again...The grand is already a year old...Where does the time go?....Sounded like the outing for the party was a nice one and the temps were not to hot...This particular blood clot was a dangerous one very near to the main artery..Mom was not even allowed to go home first they immediately sent her to the hospital..Dad & Mom were at the Podiatrist and this is an hour and a half or a bit more away from our house...Need to tell you something funny that happened to Mom the other day..She heard walking on our front deck so she got up and looked out the screened door and there was a deer looking in the door...So she grabbed the container of crackers went outside and the deer was eating the crackers right out of her hand..She threw some out on the lawn thinking the deer would go down for them...Nope it wanted them from her hand..Finally she came back in..The deer decided after a few minutes to leave the deck..Tame deer I would say..Hope you are having a nice day...Pecked a V4U....Many birdie wing hugs to both of you..Love you 2 buddies, Stormy :o)

  Hi Pearl and Silver
Nice new washcloths! Happy birthday to the grand, too.
Well, mom did manage a couple of hours at the pool yesterday because it got kind of sunny around 1. Then she, her sister and brother in law went to dinner and to Barnes and Noble in the pouring rain. She had coupons and so did her sis, and it was Barnes and Noble, after all.
Mom was laughing yesterday too, because of the spice cabinet. Do you want to take a guess at how many ancient spices were in the back? Mom was shocked! There were also some extracts in there that dated from when she was teaching and used them in science classes. They're gone now, since she's been retired for 16 years.
One cupboard down, several more to go, but mom is doing it slowly.
Today is the anniversary of the day Gizmo left us, so mom has been thinking of him. Then she saw his avatar on the calendar page and kind of lost it for a little bit. I think she'll be okay now, though.
It's really overcast again today, but it's supposed to clear up by noon. If so, you know where mom will be, and if not, she'll be back in that kitchen.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of good weather, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo and Divo, mom loves you both, Willie, Peppino & Falco.

  Hi Pearl, Hi Silver.
It's Blue and Jewel.
Yesterday afternoon we all heard the pitter patter of rain drops on our patio roof. We also smelled water. Dad brought up the weather radar page and there was a big storm cell right over our house. The wind changed direction and was blowing cool air through the house and blowing dark clouds directly over us. By the time dad got outside the rain had stopped. Dad said that we got about ten drops. The rest evaporated before it hit the ground. Hummmph! What good is that? Meanwhile, mom was finishing up cleaning cages, in the kitchen, on the floor that dad had just scrubbed the other day. Dad is not a happy camper right now.
Today will be cooler and partly cloudy, with a high of 89 and a low of 63. Three degrees cooler?! Big whoop!
Today is a power alert day to save energy so mom and dad are going to hang out at the movies. Us? Well, you know where we'll be. For those who asked to see mom and dad's award pictures, they're posted in Alex's photo gallery. We don't know who the guy standing behind mom and dad is.
Hope your day was fun.

Tuesday evening Dad and Uncle Geno went to a special event at Parkside Candies.
The evening included 'Make Your Own Sundaes' at the ice cream counter and a tour of the candy factory. Much of the original equipment from 1927 is used to make all kinds of candies.
They even gave 20% discount on candies bought that evening.
A great time! [Cue 'Willy Wonka' music].
Fortunately Dad did NOT get turned into a giant blueberry!

“Hello Every Birdie! Today is the last day of June, and my last Bird of the Month blog. For our last trip, we are going to be visit Tokyo, Japan. Our first stop is going to be the Imperial Palace. Let’s go!” They arrive at the Imperial Palace grounds, which is the main residence of the Emperor of Japan. They take a tour of the grounds, but aren’t allowed to enter the buildings. Next they head to the Edo Tokyo Museum, which a museum of the history of Tokyo during the Edo period. They see the life-size replica of the Nihonashi, which was the bridge leading into Edo, and they see scale models of towns and buildings from the Edo, Meiji and Showa periods. Next they visit the Shinjuka Gyoen National Garden. They stroll through the gardens, and see beautiful trees, plants, and ponds. It is very calm and peaceful there. After that they visit the Ueno Zoo. At the zoo, they see Red Pandas, Japanese Black Bears, Sumantran Tigers, Capybaras, and many other animals. Next they head to Tokyo DisneySea. They see the shows and go on the rides there, and have a lot of fun. After, they visit Tokyo National Museum, which is the oldest Japanese national museum. They see lots of interesting things there. After they are finished there, the visit the Tokyo Skytree. They head to the observation tower, and up there they have a lovely view of Tokyo.

Can't believe that the grand is one already!!! Hope the pics came out.
That was the first attempt to file my beak, mom did good. It was my lower beak that the vet wanted to put me under to fix. Now, mom knows what to do.
Oh yes, there were several avian vets in the area we are moving to. One huge avian vet office was within a mile!

Moms left her neck wrap in the microwave over night before obviously completely forgetting it was in there.She didn't forget very long last night though as she had a horrible headache that turned into a migraine.

How wonderful that the weather cooperated for the grands first birthday in the park!What a nice idea to hold the party.A friend of Mom's two kids had birthdays in June and July and she always had their parties at the pond at the end of our development here.It was so good because there's no clean up and no mess in the house.And all the kids who are invited have plenty of room to run around(those who are old enough).
We haven't got those paper bag fees here yet,at one point they were taking five cents off your bill if you brought your own bags.But that has stopped here.The paper bags if you ask for them are so small its ridiculous.Mom keeps some reusable bags in her car.But like your sweet Mom she bags any meats that will leak all over the reusable bags in those produce bags.
You are right about those designer things being a bit on the pricey side even if they are on the markdown racks.Mom and Nana were in Macy's the other day(Nana was looking for a bathrobe)and they couldn't believe the prices they wanted for sleep wear!You used to be able to get some good buys with the clearance racks but not anymore!
This morning was a bright sunny morning with the highs for the day of 76 the lows of 61. Right now its 75 and its so good to see the sunshine and feel the warmth out there! Mom got us all up and cleaned our cages and fed us and then swept up our room before she vacuums.Mom is home with us all day today and we are so hoping to get outside again today to get more sunshine.Other than that its another boring day here but that's all right with us,Mom is home with us all day again!
We all finally got to go outside today in the hot sunshine and got lots of showers.We got to stay out there from 3:00pm to 6:30pm as we got to share dinner with Mom and dad on the deck.Dixie got to share dad's dinner with him on the table and Candida was quite jealous and kept whining the whole time,she thinks she owns dad.It will be a cage day all day tomorrow for us as Mom has to take Nana and skin sis on their errand runs.We're glad we had some time out these last few days!
The three tiels all open their wings wide for a big group tiel wing hug and hold on tight basking in the warmth and glow of their friendship.Soon they are swaying and humming so happily!
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!Loving you always and forever,Peepers

Happy birthday to the grand! Wow that year sure went fast. She is such a sweetie and you are all so blessed to have her in your life too.
I got a bath and a sunbath again today and the rain didn’t show up till around 4 pm so had a nice sunbath too. When mom cleaned my condo last night she noticed my heater wasn’t working. She messed with the cord and plug but it never came on. The night before when mom cleaned my condo it was working though. Mom called Foster and Smith and there is a one year warranty on them and mom bought mine in November of 2013 so the warranty is done. They are on sale now so mom looked at other things also that was on sale and put an order in for the heater and some other things too. Mom says it’s a good thing June is about over cause I blew my budget for this month LOL. “Laughter is an instant vacation” Left a vote for you my friend. Your kissing cousin, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Mom is all caught up on the Kitty Norville books now, even the latest one featuring Cormac and Amanda which she really liked. She has always had a little thing for Cormac. And she requested her library purchase the next book which is apparently the final one where Kitty faces off against Roman. Sorry to see the series end, but Mom is looking forward to whatever Carrie Vaughn writes next.

Several birdies have commented on the reports of fires in CA, and although I am happy to report that none are near us so far, this is eggspected to be the worst and longest fire season in many years due to the 5 year drought. Fire is actually a season here, and it normally doesn't start until September or October, but this year it has already begun. Our house is pretty much in a safe zone, but the hills around our valley have burned before and may burn again. If that happens the air isn't safe for birds, and I will be kept indoors.

Speaking of which, yes! I cooperated on going outside in my carrier this morning, although Mom was beginning to think it wasn't going to happen. We made it out there at 10:05, and it was already hot enough that Mom put my carrier in partial shade although I opted for the sun. She sat in shade the whole time. The weather idiots predicted 93 for today, but it is 101 out there right now. Too hot!

Although my sunbath almost made her late Mom made it to Abs Blast and zumba this morning, and then came home and took her shower immediately. She had trouble drying off afterwards because of the humidity. We are spoiled here and not used to this wet air. How did she stand it growing up in MD, and how do all my friends back east handle it? Oh yeah, we parrots like it; it is just the humans that have a problem with it!

  Hi P&S
A decade plus ago when mom was driving the skinsibs to camps at MSU, she used to keep 1/2 an eye on a field at one of the corners where there were TAWNY ground hogs--like the color of lions. It must have been a family grouping cause they tend to be loners. They were so pretty and they were so shy. Mom didn't believe they were ground hogs for quite a while.
It is fun having them come right into our yard.
We think the bunny is a baby. Mom saw another one on her walk yesterday, so it is probably just the time for babies to moving about.

  Hi Pearl and Silver
Mom is hoping to find lots of stuff to give away or toss.
Yesterday when mom got back from the pool after a couple of hours, it started raining. It rained off and on all night long. It's sort of overcast right now too, and we think it's going to rain again today. This is getting old! We've had more rain in June than normal. It's the last day of June, though, so maybe July will bring better weather.
Since mom got her nails done on Sunday, if it rains today, she'll start packing up the kitchen. I know it's still a couple of weeks away, but she figures a little at a time will be better than trying to do it all at once.
I hope you are having a good day, summery weather and lots of cuddles and love. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo and Divo, mom loves you both, Willie, Peppino & Falco.

It's Blue and Jewel.
Bob came back over with some more framing stuff. Aaron Brothers had to start over with Bob's framing because he wanted something else in the frame. So the whole order had to be done over. Bob wasn't happy but he realized that it wasn't Aaron Brothers fault. After the framing, Bob, mom and dad went to a new Asian buffet. it was huge. Needless to say, everyone was full when they left.
Today will be partly cloudy, hot and humid again. With a high of 92 and a low of 67.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Blue and Jewel.

  hi fellows
Mom had a good time yesterday visiting . . . and came home with presents for me ! And even better ? Daddy is learning to speak "quaker" - he noticed my water dish was crooked and knew I had tried to bathe in it, so he got my tub and we splashed and played together in it !

Now today she's shopping with my Laura ! Sheeesh - this is not how I planned our vacation together ! Luckily though, Laura has to work this afternoon so that means mom will be home early - I wonder if there'll be more presents ?

Have a good Tuesday - give all in your house my love ! Cookie

  Hi Pearl and Silver!
“Hello Every Birdie! Today we are visiting Paris, France. Our first stop is going to be the Musée d'Orsay Museum. Let’s go!” They arrive at the museum, which used to be the Orsay Railway Station. They look through the museum, and see lots of art from the 1848s to 1914. Next they head over to the Tuileries Garden. They take a stroll through there, and it is lovely. After that, they go to see the Arc De Triomphe. The arc is big and beautiful. After they are done viewing that, they visit the Louvre Museum, one of the largest museums in the world. Inside, there is lots of artwork. They see the Mona Lisa, which makes Cookie very excited. When they are finished there, they take a tour of the Paris Catacombs. The Paris Catacombs are underground ossuaries, which hold the remains of about six million people. The tour is cool, but creepy. Next they visit the Musée Marmottan Monet. The museum features a collection of over three hundred impressionist and post-impressionist works by Claude Monet, Berthe Morisot, Edgar Degas, Edouard Manet, Alfred Sisley, Camille Pissarro, Paul Gauguin, Paul Signac, and Pierre Auguste Renior. After touring through the museum, they head over to see the Eiffel Tower. The tower is big and gorgeous. They visit the second floor of the tower, and look down at Paris. It is beautiful. After that, they eat dinner at a delicious French restaurant, and then head to a hotel. – Thanks for voting! See you tomorrow! Hugs, Jester

Well, your pic is greyt! Enjoy your big win. I'm thrilled to get a 3rd place. I don't win things so it's special to me.
Today was another nice day. But, I had to go to the vet for a recheck. I have one more day of meds and I'm done. Mom filed my bottom beak and the vet was happy with the way it looked. He said I was doing greyt. That sure took up most of the day (150 miles round trip)! Tomorrow we all have to leave the house twice for people to see our house. Mom says we can have a treat and maybe go to the park.
Hugs

  Hi Pearl and Silver
Yes there is lots of birds around and they do make lots of noise too.I like to get up on the window sill and watch them out the window.
Mom cracks the walnut a wee little bit for me and then I work hard and long to get it open but mom says that keeps me good and busy working for my food LOL.
All the rain we keep having mom said she needed to get out of the house a while yesterday so she went to visit just a bit with skin brother and his family. Dad was home with me so the door on my condo was open if I wanted to be out or not. Mom didn’t stay long but when she came home we acted like we hadn’t seen each other in ages like we always do LOL. “Laughter is an instant vacation” Left a vote for you my friend.

  Hi Pearl Hi Silver
Your mom certainly did come up with a great picture for you guys it's very creative.
Just last night my mom forgot something in the microwave but not for very long.She was heating up her neck wrap because she was starting to get a headache and stiff neck.Probably sat in there for about ten minutes after it was done.
Staying in the 70's here with more rain today and some storms headed this way for tonight. Feeling a bit humid this evening so hopefully that will break apart soon.Hope your week is off to a good start.

  Hi Pearl and Silver
When Dixie was given the bowl with the names in it to pick out he kept teasing Mom by walking around the bowl and finally Mom shook the bowl up again and set it down in front of him again and he decided to pick a name out and when he went running around the counter top with the name in his beak and Mom was so surprised to see it was your names!I myself was so pleased!Just take your time and let me or Dixie know what you'd like to have for your prize pic!I birdsonally loved your Milonga Ren Faire pic!What a wonderful job your sweet Momma did on that!
That sounds just like what my Mom and Nana did when my skin sibs were little also!They could never afford it otherwise with the price of clothes these days.You can sometimes get some good buys on those clearance racks!
They were talking about making us pay here for each bag that we use in the grocery stores but so far nothing has come of it,Mom does bring her own bags but when she buys something messy like meat she asks for plastic bags so it doesn't get all over the reusable bags.There are some places here that you have to bring a bag or you take the stuff you buy out without a bag!Mom loves those reusable bags as its like giving the recipient two gifts in one!
Your Mom must've had so much fun with the grand eating.They are so funny at that age!How wonderful she enjoys food and eating!
Another dark dreary,cold,dismal day.We woke up to a sunless sky with more rain,the highs for the day 74 the lows 60. We are at 64 right now.If it gets any darker we may as well go back to bed!We waited all the cold long winter to be thrown into cold and darkness and lots more wet stuff? Mom got us all up fed and cleaned our cages and then swept our room.She's going to spend the day cleaning the house and scrubbing the bathrooms.Skin bro called earlier and he's going to try and make it over here for Mom to serve him some lunch.So Mom will heat up some of the Creamy Chicken Tetrazzini she made yesterday for him.When are we ever going to see the sunshine again?Here it is the end of June and still no warm sunshine everyday!We are in our third week of constant rain on Sunday and no BBQ and no outdoor time in!Where did the sunshine go?
Finally late in the afternoon the sun decided to come out and Mom was so happy she ran and opened all the windows and stopped what she was doing and got us all outside to sit in the sunshine and have a few showers!It got as high as 71 and felt even warmer then that!We got to stay outside even when dad came home and Mom went inside and got dinner ready all the while dad was keeping an eye on us while Mom was inside,we even got to join them for dinner but as soon as Mom brought dinner out,the sun went down the wind picked up and it started getting cold.But we were just happy to be out there with them.Mom brought us our snacks of grapes and we ate them out there,Kallie got another chicken bone to chomp on.
The three tiels all open their wings wide for a big group tiel wing hug and hol

  Hey Buddy's
I'm practicing my C/P and I wrote a poem when I was bored in lock down heehee...
Journey is so cute and she smiles at my mommy every time she see's her. Time flys faster than us !!!

Here's the silly little poem I wrote. I hope you like it. I had nothing but time in my claws when I wrote it.

It's a super hot day in my neighborhood.
The heat over here is up to no good.
Please send me some rain and cold temps if you could.
I'm going to bite mother nature if you think I should.
I feel like I'm going to fry, so to you I shout out and cry
Please don't eat KFC cause it might be me in this hot neighborhood.

Love your KFC buddy

  Hi Pearl and Silver
We had some sun today, for about 2 hours, but now it's cloudy and threatening rain again. It's in the low 70s, which is really low for this time of year.
Mom was scheduled for the RVS room again today. She cleaned and fed 23 raccoons and a skunk baby, but that was only about half the room. She left a note for her replacement person on the daily schedule to let her know what was done. With raccoons, sometimes it's hard to tell if they have been cleaned or not, especially after they are fed. They paint themselves and each other with the food, fling it around, just make a mess in general. Mom moved some of the animals around while she was cleaning, so she had to keep track of their charts. Charts are hung on the walls now, to keep them out of reach of curious raccoon hands, so it's easy to switch them around.
Mom did get to the pool for about 2 hours, but it got really dark, so she packed it in and came home to shower and blog for us.
Carol(Cori and Booboo's mom) lost her dog Cookie this morning. They made the decision to put her down because she was not eating any more. It would be nice to drop by Cori's or Booboo's page and offer condolences.
I hope you are having a good day and getting some sun and cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo and Divo, mom loves you both, Willie, Peppino & Falco.
