I was on the floor of Pottsee's Exotics, a very nice bird store in Bellflower, California. I was in a small cage when I saw two people walk in. The lady sat down and looked down and noticed me and asked the shop owner what kind of bird I was and he told her that I am a Cinnamon Green-Cheeked Conure and I'm not very common.
Then a man came over and the owner's wife put me on his hand. I just sat there, looking around, not too sure what to do. The man handed me to the lady and she held me for a while and then put me on a stand.
Well, I saw my chance and launched myself off the stand and climbed up the book racks. The owner's wife had to get me down. But she gave me back to the man and he talked to me real quietly for a while.
Well, that was all she wrote. I went home with my new mom and dad and now I'm part of the La Habra flock.

Hi! My name is GINGER

I am a Green-Cheeked Conure from La Habra, CA.

Ginger Bird, Gin-Gin, Buzz-Saw. Buzzy, Feathered Beaver.

5 years old   F

Green-Cheeked Conure

Tropical fruit treat sticks, Apples. Anything made of wood. Dad's nose.

On the top of her cage or on top of her neighbors cages.

Anything strange that is brought into my field of view.

They talk to me and let me sit in the living room with them and watch TV. That's kind of cool. I also have lots of wooden toys.

Every time her water is changed, she takes a bath in it. Anything made of wood has a very short life span.
She also serves as the La Habra flock's "Early Warning" system. Anytime she sees or hears something that she feels is a threat, which is just about everything, she sounds the "Alarm".

Every water cup is a bath tub..

  Hi Ginger
This morning started off with bright sunshine but lots of wind.The highs for the day are 70 and the lows for the day will be 60 and right now at 3:00pm its just 70.Mom got us all up and fed us our bean mix and cleaned our cages and room and then she went out to make us some more fresh bean mix as we were completely out of it.She put it in the pan and turned it on low with a cover and left to work on something else while that was cooking.All of a sudden she realized that she had had it still cooking on the stove and ran into the kitchen and it had boiled over onto the cooktop!She shut the stove off and took the pan off the stove and put the over cooked bean mix in the small containers for us and then went to work on getting the stuck on bean mix off the bottom of the pan and had to really scrub the cook top to get that hardened mess off.She finally got that done and then Dad called her and wanted her to take her car down to the car repair shop with the appraisal and get that all set up to be worked on.So after she did a few more chores in the house she got in the car and took it down and Paul looked at it and said it wasn't that bad.She's gonna get a used door and he will check to make sure the window works on it that's what Mom was afraid of.Her appointment for the car is June 15th and it should take anywhere from 4-5 days.Mom will have to find a way to take Nana out for her errands and drs appointment.
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm GCC hugs and soft GCC kisses!Loving you always and forever,sweet Ginger,Love Dixie

This morning was a bright but cool sunny morning with the highs of 72 lows of 60 right now its cloudy dark and 70 cold degrees.Mom got us all up this morning after she got dad off to work and cleaned our cages and fed us and swept our room and then proceeded to get all the laundry washed and on the line.Then she made a ricotta cheesecake and a crustless pumpkin pie.Dad came home around 1:30pm and he got the grill out and all set up for our BBQ and while he did that Mom went and got the hamburgers and the hot dogs and rolls and condiments on the tray.Dad brought two deck chairs down to the lawn and while we stayed on the deck they ate on the lawn by the grill,the day kept getting colder and colder and the sun never came back out!Mom,dad and all of us had a nice relaxing time enjoying the BBQ until a big hawk came circling low in the sky over us!Mom looked up along with dad and couldn't believe the wingspan on that thing nearly 5 feet wide!Mom jumped up and ran to the deck and hauled both our cages inside the door.I can't tell if the hawk smelled the burgers and hotdogs or US!Mom wasn't taking any chances on that though.Then after Mom and dad were done eating,Mom took everything inside and cleaned up and then she and dad went out back to get the laundry in.There was so much of it and dad helped Mom get them off the lines for her and then as Mom folded the laundry,he took all his stuff upstairs and put it away.Now Mom is deciding whether to close all the windows or just leave some open for a while longer.The sun was nice while it was out but it never lasted long!
Wishing you a greyt Memorial day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm GCC hugs and soft GCC kisses!Loving you always and forever,sweet Ginger,Love Dixie

  Hi Ginger!
We went over and saw the pictures of Izzy, he is a very handsome Grey! How old is he? Thank you so much for voting me Bird of the Day on Friday! I had a fun time hanging out with my friends in the castle! (: Jester, Honey, Pressie and I got dropped off at our Uncle Charlie's house today. I don't get to see mommy again until the 5th of June! ): I don't mind it too much here, I like Uncle Charlie. Grey Bird, Bella and Dobby are staying at our house, and mom's Grandmother is coming over to take care of them, and the dog and cat. At least I'll be let out of my cage here! Have a nice night, I'll talk to you later! Hugs, Peatree

We woke up to a bright sunny morning a little chilly the highs for the day of 71 the lows being 55,its 63 right now at 7:00pm.Mom got to feed us our bean mix and clean our cages then got dad his breakfast and made dad his sandwiches for his lunch for the week,and skin sis came over before 10:00am.Then Mom started on cleaning out the TV room closet and had everything pulled off from the shelves and on the TV room floor and then skin bro came in.Mom had two big huge garbage bags and a third one started.Skin bro wanted a haircut so Mom had to stop what she was doing and get the clippers and go outside to cut skin bro's hair,dad was outside mowing the yard and getting the deck furniture up and he got the screens in the storm door and the grill out.We will have a BBQ tomorrow when dad comes home from work!After Mom got done with skin bro's hair he left to go look for some houses with the realtor and Mom and skin sis continued on with the closet.Finally by late afternoon Mom got most of everything out of the shelves and filled one big huge garbage bag for donations and the other huge bag with trash and then there were several smaller bags with more donations.Around 3:30pm Mom stopped to make lunch for everyone and just as she got done making french bread pizza and brought it out to the deck,skin sis's ride came and she had to leave.So Mom packed up her pizza and she took it home with her to eat there.Mom had already taken us all out on the deck to enjoy the sunshine and we had some nice showers too!Then Mom had dad lift all those heavy bags out to the car for her so you could see the room again.After Mom made dinner for dad and got us all cleaned up for the night,she finally got into the TV room again so we could do our blogs.We so hope that tomorrow will be just as nice as today was and that Mom will not be spending the day inside working so we all can enjoy the warm sunshine!
That BBQ sounds like it was so much fun with all that food there!It sure sounds like there was plenty of food to go around for everyone!

  Hi Ginger
Oh my word does that sound like a lot of eggs and lots of boiling going on!85 eggs!That sure is a whole lot of people coming to that Memorial Day BBQ!And a new chicken recipe too?I sure do hope that after all that work in the kitchen that both your sweet Parronts will enjoy the BBQ and not have to do anymore work at the BBQ!
This morning dawned bright and sunny but is it ever cold out there!Our highs for the day will be 59 while the lows will be 50,its 55 right now and still too cold for us to get out on the deck today!Mom got us all up and fed us our warm bean mix,cleaned our cages and our room and then she sat and made out some bills and got them in the mail.Dad is outside finishing raking the leaves and then he's going to bring the lawn mower back up to the garage and the snow blower back down to the cellar and he's thinking of mowing the lawn tomorrow,Mom is hoping to get the deck furniture out so she can sit on a chair and not on the deck floor with us!Mom is busy trying to clean up more clutter here and is still thinking of cleaning out the tv room closet she's been trying to do for a while now!That will be a day's work in itself as there's so much stuff in there she hasn't seen in ages and the skin sibs have clothes and stuff they left behind in there also!There is so much stuff that Mom has got to get rid of in this house that hasn't been used in ages or that has been forgotten about!

  Hi Ginger
This morning was a dark gloomy wet morning to start and then the sun came out nicely,our highs for the day were 66 the lows of 44,right now its 64 and quite windy!Mom got all the trash collected and in her car and then put Dixie's harness on and got him in the car seat and they took off to Nana's.When they got there Mom got Dixie settled in his cage in the sun room and then she got all of Nana's things for the dump in her car along with hers and they went to the dump and from there Mom went to the bank,then they went to pick up skin sis in Falmouth at her apartment,then Mom drove back to Mashpee to CVS so Nana could get some things she needed and then they went to Subway to have lunch and from there they went to get Nana's inspection sticker for her car then they went to the post Office for skin sis and as usual couldn't find a place to park so Mom had to park in a handicap spot and ran in and was out in a second then they went back to Nana's house and had some tea and strawberry shortcake.By that time it was getting late and Mom had to take skin sis back home and get gas in her car.So everyone got into Mom's car and she pumped gas for $2.67 a gallon but she got her gas rewards points and got the gas for $2.57 a gallon.She filled her tank for $20.00. When Mom and Nana got back from dropping skin sis off at her apartment she collected Dixie and left to go home,the traffic was so bad and it was bumper to bumper like it was the other day and no one was going anywhere fast.I think the whole world is here for this weekend!It took Mom 45 minutes to get home as the traffic was still so bad.When Mom got home she cleaned our cages and fed us our snacks as Dad had just got home himself.Then she got dinner for dad and put everything away that she brought home with her.Mom is hoping to stay home for the rest of the weekend and not have to go out again!They have those already cooked and peeled eggs here at Trader Joes and several other grocery stores in the area!Mom thought that was interesting also!They also have a deviled egg platter that you can get already made up in Shaw's/Star Market and you can also get the hard boiled egg whites and the filling all ready to pipe into the egg whites in a pastry bag and do it yourself!

  Hi Ginger!
Hi friend! How are you? I am doing very well. Right now I'm hanging out on mommy's computer while she is helping me and my other flock members say hi to you guys! I'll probably stay here to help her do her school when she is done here. (: I overheard mom saying that she is going to deep clean and rearrange our cages today or tomorrow... I like when she cleans my cage, but I don't like when she moves my toys around! I'll keep them right where they are, thank you! Mom has been teaching herself to do watercolor paintings, so far she has done one of Me and one of Weasley. I think she is really good with the watercolors, I'll have her upload them to my gallery for you guys! (: Hugs, Peatree

Oh do I know how you must feel like not being able to see your parronts for days on end,that's what its been like around here for the past several months or more.If Mom isn't running off to help Nana then she's doing both helping Nana and skin sis sometimes all in one day which makes for an early morning getaway from here to a late night coming home for her.Its a good thing our daddy isn't working any storms or other dire emergencies for the town or we'd be totally alone til way after dark waiting on our snacks and cage cleaning and snuggle time.
Rio sure is a smart one to figure out how to escape the nest box and the cage!
This morning is a bright sunny day but cold,our highs for the day will be 62,the lows being 49 and its 61 right now. Mom tried opening the windows but it was cold air that came in so she closed them and she's running our two heat boxes just to keep the chill out of the house.Mom is home with us today and she got us all up,cleaned our cages and fed us our warm bean mix.Then she's going to work on getting some of the chores done,collect the trash and recyclables for the dump tomorrow and maybe if she is in the mood will start cleaning out the tv room closet.What a mess that will be as there's so much stuff in there.The sun is starting to fade out now and its not getting any warmer so I don't think that we'll be going outside any time soon.Other than Mom working around the house its going to be another boring day here which is fine with us,at least Mom will be home with us all day!

Mom doesn't know if the neighbor had the backup camera or not in her car but she has a 2012 Toyota.Thanks for the good luck for my Mom on this thing,she's so hoping they'll see that she's telling the truth and that she wasn't at fault,the neighbor even said she didn't see her!
Your sweet daddy is so amazing to wash all the floors for your sweet Mom like that!And he sounds just like my Mom,she love cranking that radio up loud while she does her house chores,we're like you we love to make joyful noise as we have our own boom box in our room all day and up until we go to bed!We have a Red Robin over the Bridge here also and what a greyt fund raiser that is!
This morning was a bright sunny morning with the highs for the day being 66 and the lows 46,its 61 right now.Mom got us all up and fed and cleaned our cages and swept our room and then she got Dixie's harness on and set him in the car seat and took off to Nana's house.When she got there,she set Dixie up in his cage in the sun room there and she first had to clean out his nares which were blocked with a toothpick and Qtip,she finally got his nares cleared so he could breathe better again then she and Nana took off to Hyannis.Nana had wanted to go to Macy's to get something with her gift card there and Mom parked close as she could to the door and as they walked inside it was the wrong part of Macy's that they had wanted,they have the Womans part of Macy's further down the Mall and Nana had tried to start walking and her legs were starting to hurt so she and Mom turned around and went back out,Nana said she'd go another day.They then went to Shaw's/Star Market so Nana could pay her EverSource bill and they got a lot of buys there as well,Mom got some hamburgers for the grill for the weekend and a few other items that my dad had needed and a frozen pizza that was on sale for Saturday night.Then from there they went back to Mashpee and to Stop&Shop grocery store to get a few more items that were on sale.Then as it was getting late they stopped for lunch at Asia one of their favorite Chinese restaurants and Mom got Hunan chicken while Nana got Mango chicken.They checked out CVS but didn't find anything they had wanted so they left and went back to Nana's house.Mom unloaded the car and brought all of Nana's things inside for her and went across the street to get her mail.She actually got mail in her new mailbox that's right outside her garage door that my dad put up for her last weekend.The traffic was horrendous and when Mom and Dixie were coming home it was bumper to bumper and crawling.It seems like everyone is back up here again now.
When Mom came home she had to unpack everything and find room in the freezer and then get dad his dinner and our cages cleaned for the night,dad had already given every birdie their snack.Mom finally finished the dishes so she could come and get our blogs done for us!

This morning was a dark cold morning with the highs being 62 and the lows of 55,its 57 right now.The morning didn't start off good for Mom at all.She got a call from her insurance company and they told her that her neighbor's insurance company said that her neighbor is blaming Mom for the accident that happened last week.Mom is so upset because that is not what happened,it was the neighbor who drove into Mom,Mom's whole passenger side door is banged in and dented,and the neighbor's bumper has damage.How can that be?So its been a morning of phone calls back and forth,between the insurance company and the agent.Now Mom has to fill out an accident form for her insurance company and send that in while they send someone out to survey the scene of where the accident happened.Mom is so upset.Then on top of all that we lost our power and Mom had to reset everything including the computer,which she had lost the blogs she had already done for us.Then it started raining here ,downright pouring.Mom got us all fed and cleaned and our room done,and then my dad called Mom and he was none too happy about the insurance mess and he called the insurance company which in turn called Mom back again.Dad is furious with the neighbor now!Mom is so upset and doesn't want to start a war.This is such a mess,but if Mom gets blamed for this her insurance premiums will go up higher and she'll get the bad driver credit points against her for the next seven years.
Mom has lost all desire to do much after this rude awakening this morning.She'll just try and keep her mind off this mess and clean up the house and get more of her chores done.

How awful the Country Festival.Who goes to a place to hear a DJ play recorded music and of all things RAP CRAP!YUCK!It was good that at least they did get to see their photographer friend and got some nice pictures!Your sweet parronts are right,who wants to hang around til 6:00pm for the bands to start playing!
This morning was a bright sunny morning with the temperatures highs of 72 and the lows of 51,its 64 right now.Mom got us all up and fed and cleaned our cages and swept our room,got dad his breakfast and then skin sis called Mom crying because she wasn't feeling well and wanted to come with us but Mom told her to stay home.Skin bro came and picked up Mom with Nana and they took off for Middleboro and to Peter( the Breeder friend) of Mom's place.It took them 2 and a half hours for them to get there.The GPS kept giving them the wrong turns and they kept going in circles and was it ever hot in the car as skin bro has no A/C and it was 89 over the Bridge.When they finally got there both Mom and Nana bought some InTune pellets for us and Madagascar mix and some fruit and nuts mix.Nana got our cousin Trixie II a little wooden mirror with a perch on it.From there they went to find someplace to eat and they went to one place and it was cafeteria style and Nana couldn't stand that long to serve herself so they left and went to Chilli's and got something there,Mom and skin bro got a chicken quiesadilla and Nana got a hamburger and then Skin bro ordered us the molten chocolate cake and they were full by the time they finished that.Then they went to Big Lots but Mom didn't find anything there,Nana got a few items and Skin bro got a few things,then they went to the Dollar Tree and Mom and Nana both got some things there.Then from there they came home.Mom didn't get home til well after 6:30pm.Mom had to hurry and clean up the kitchen and get dad some dinner and his coffee ready for tomorrow and his lunches made.By the time Mom got her shower in and our cages cleaned out for the night it was after 8:00pm.So here we are trying to begin our blogs to every birdie.Mom is so tired from yet another long day out,she's hoping to get something done in the house tomorrow.Skin sis wanted to come over early in the morning and stay til 5:00pm and Mom told her she just couldn't do it right now.She's got to get her chores done and our cages properly cleaned and not just another fast one done on them.

This morning started off bright and sunny and then it got dark and cloudy and a bit on the cool side.Then it started raining heavy for about one minute and then stopped all while the sun was out shining brightly! Our highs for the day will be 66 while the lows will be 56 and right now its 70 but it sure doesn't feel warm.Mom tried opening the windows to let some of the warm air come through but then it got cold so she closed them again.
Dad's co worker came over this morning with his wife to have a look at us!Their dog just died and they want to get a parrot and Dad had suggested a cockatiel but they are more interested in a bigger bird like a conure.So dad told Mom to stay here while he went to put Nana's new mail box up for her on her house.They were so amazed once they saw us.Mom has us go through our tricks,well,it was only Dixie right now as Kallie had to be caged because they were really interested in our baby fister Candida and Kallie doesn't get along with Candida.You should've seen Dixie do everything he could still do.His feet are so bad that he can't do everything he used to do.They just couldn't get over how he understood everything!The wife wanted to try and direct Dixie to do some tricks and she really wanted to get a conure after that.Dixie played fetch for her and pulled the pull toy for her and even did bowling for her!They were asking all kinds of questions of what we ate,and Mom told them and then showed them our pellets,and she also told them we had to eat fresh fruits and veggies and that we were not to be kept 24/7 in our cages all day.And that we needed medical care,grooming every three weeks or so,and lots of fresh air and sunshine depending on the weather.Mom even showed them all the things that we use,play gyms,swings,toys,etc.Mom told them also to never purchase one of us in a store,they must go to a breeder and a reputable one at that,so they will be going to my Mom's breeder friend in Middleborough to get a baby.
We had rain here but it wasn't anything soaking and it never lasted for long.We are beginning to need the rain badly here also as all our flowers are dying way too quickly as they're drying out.

This morning was a bright sunny but cool morning,the highs for the day 66 the lows 52,its hanging in at 61 right now at8:30pm and Mom got all the trash packed in her car along with the recyclables and our birdie trash to take to the dump along with Nana's.The insurance company called Mom early this morning and helped her fill out the form for the neighbors insurance company and she got that out in the mail.Then she got us all up and cleaned our cages and fed us our warm bean mix and swept up our room,she got Dixie harnessed and in our car seat and then she took off to Nana's.When she got there she packed all of Nana's trash in Nana's car along with hers and got Dixie settled in his cage there in the sun room and then they both took off to the dump.From there they went to Falmouth to pick up Skin Sis to take her out with them and they went back into Hyannis.They went to Home Depot where Nana got a mailbox to hang on her house.Then from there they went to Kohl's but neither one of them found anything there,then they went to Trader Joe's where both Mom and Nana got some more bean mix for us and skin sis bought enough meals to have for a while.Then they went to Bobby Byrnes to have a Nacho plate to share for lunch as it was almost 3:00pm.Then from there they went to Falmouth where Skin Sis got them all a blizzard and from there they went to Shaw's grocery so Mom and Nana could use the bathrooms.Then from there they took skin sis home and while Mom carried her heavy groceries up those 17 steps,skin bro met them there.He had gotten gas nearby and was on his way to Walmart to cash his check.After they stood a talked for a few minutes,Skin bro headed off to Walmart and Mom took Nana home.She unpacked the car and then put everything she had in her car,collected Dixie and then came home.It was 6:30pm by the time she got home and had to get dad his dinner and clean out our cages, Dad had already given us our snacks.Mom is so tired from driving from one end of town to the other and she is so hoping to stay home tomorrow and Sunday with us.
We are needing some rain also here as everything is drying up and all our pretty flowers are dying way before their time.We are all so excited knowing that you are finally getting some rain there after all this time of dryness there.Mom doesn't blame your daddy for not wanting to clean a fish,my Mom won't do that either!Does that Gumbo really sound good!Izzy really sounds like a very happy birdie!I think he's just so happy he flew into a family that really loves him!

This morning started off super cold and freezing,our highs for the day were 63 and the lows will be 47,its 61 right now!Mom got us all up fed us and cleaned our cages and then the insurance company called Mom returning her call from yesterday and at the same time the appraiser guy was calling her to tell her he was in the driveway looking at her car.This was all before 9:00am!The appraiser was a bit shaky,he had a cane and was slow and holding a camera to take pictures of Mom's car and a clip board to write everything down on.It didn't take long and right as he left Mom took the car back in the garage and skin sis called to tell Mom she was in the driveway and this was just before 10:00am.She came and while Mom was trying to get some things done before they had to go to the drs. she told Mom that they had to be there before 1:15pm.So Mom didn't bother to finish what she was doing or start anything else.They left and when they got there the office was locked,they got there 20 minutes early,another couple came and found the office locked also.Then the secretary came and unlocked the doors after about 20 minutes.They want you there 15 minutes early and then they're the ones who aren't there.From there Mom and skin sis went to Stop&Shop in Sandwich and Mom got some things on sale,the sale ends today,cake mixes of different flavors for $0.99 so she could have them for the recipes she needed.Skin sis the whole time was walking with both her crutches and Mom didn't want her to go any farther and tried to park nearer the store.Skin sis was having a blast out in the fresh air and doing something other than watching movies all day and sleeping.When they got back home it was really nice out almost hot so Mom made them some lunch of sloppy joes made with ground chicken.Mom took all of us out on the deck to enjoy the sunshine while they had lunch and we got some nice soaking showers.Then skin sis's ride came to pick her up to take her home and she collected Peepers and Celine to take them back with her.She really missed them and getting to snuggle with them and take care of them.Mom then took their cage out on the deck and scrubbed it and let it air dry in the sun and scrubbed all the dishes and water bottle and then put that back in the spare room for us when we needed it.Now Mom is back to just the three of us again.Mom and dad both collected the trash around the house so Mom could take it all to the dump tomorrow along with Nana's trash.Then Mom got some forms to fill out from the neighbor's insurance company for the accident and they will call Mom back tomorrow because they are so confusing to fill out or understand.
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm GCC hugs and soft GCC kisses!Loving you always and forever,sweet Ginger,Love Dixie

  Hi Ginger
This morning started off as a bright sunny morning but a little on the cool side.Our highs for the day were 65 with the lows of 49,its 55 right now and freezing!Mom got us up and fed us and cleaned our cages then she took off to go to Nana's. When she got there they went to the bank so Nana could take care of something that was in error and then they went across to the True Value to check out some mailboxes but there wasn't anything there that Nana could use.From there they went to CVS where Nana got a few items and then to Stop&Shop where Nana picked up some fresh fruit for our cousins and a few other items.Then they went back to Nana's where Nana made them some lunch and they sat for awhile and Mom did our cousin Trixie's nails with the dremmel before Mom left with Nana to go back to our house.Skin bro came over for a quick visit and then took Nana home with him.Mom cleaned our cages for the night and gave us our afternoon snack and then got dad his dinner and Mom was so cold she finally caved and put on the heat box just to get the chill out of the house.What happened to all the warm weather we're supposed to get this time of year?Mom just heard from the appraisal guy for her car and he's coming tomorrow morning before 10:00am and Mom has to have her car out in the driveway for him to look at it.So as soon as he leaves she's got to get in her car and get to skin sis's apartment and pick her up to take her to her drs appointment in Sandwich,its going to be another long day for Mom driving all over the place again and Friday will be another long day with more errands to get done and the dump too!
My daddy did the same thing on Sunday when he was out cleaning up and raking Nana's yard in the hot sun,he got a sunburn all over his neck and head even though he was wearing a hat and then complained about how exhausted he was!Oh that taco lunch sounds really good!Are they going to bring you something back?Give Izzy all our love,he sure sounds like a fun fid and quite the noise box too.Please tell him hello for us!

  Hi Ginger
This morning was a wet morning and it rained somewhat last night just enough to get everything wet and damp. By mid morning the sun came out and right now its 72 degrees and warm,our highs for the day will be 70 while the lows will be 54. Mom got us all up fed and cleaned and then she scrubbed both bathrooms and she has to wait to beat out the area rugs as the deck is still too wet to hang them out to air just yet.Mom vacuumed the house and since it looks so nice out there today we just might be able to get outside later on when Mom is done with her chores.
Oh is that Izzy interesting making all those sounds of life around him!That sure must draw fast attention and people must come running whenever they hear him make that sound of a woman screaming like that!And those fire engine sirens will surely bring the police to your door!LOL!

  Hi Ginger
This morning was a grey darkish morning but by late morning the sun started to come out and it started getting warmer.Our highs for the day will be 71 our lows will be 58 and right now its 66.Mom got us all up early today and cleaned out our cages and fed us our warm bean mix. Then she opened all our windows to let the warm fresh air come through the house. Mom promises us that after she gets done with her chores she'll bring us all outside to enjoy some of the sunshine,there is quite a breeze going on right now though which makes everything feel colder than it is.
Mom always worked with us on our performance tricks no longer than in 5 minute intervals.Then after we learned some of our tricks she would go by our body language to see if we still wanted to cooperate with her and work on our tricks.We had our down days and off days but mostly we love performing.Izzy is new to your sweet family so it may take him some time to adjust to working with your awesome Momma Lori for longer time frames!
Mom is still waiting for my dad to put out our deck furniture and put the screens in the storm doors so the air can come through to the mud room!

  Hi Ginger
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO ALL OUR BIRDIE MOM'S!
This morning was a dull kind of morning but by late morning the clouds burned off and it was a nice warm sunny day here.Our highs for the day were 72 and our lows will be 58.Mom got us all up,fed and cleaned our cages and got a few things done in the house before she and dad got ready to go to Nana's.Mom packed Dixie and Candida up and put our harness and leashes on and we got in the car with Mom and dad and when they got to Nana's dad took out all the tools he brought with him to rake and clean up Nana's yard.Skin bro met them there and Mom put us in Dixie's cage in the sunroom where we enjoyed the sun and got to watch our dad working out the window there.Then Mom,Nana and skin bro took off to pick up skin sis at her apartment and they went to DQ where skin bro bought them all a blizzard.He even brought one back for our dad.When they got back to Nana's after enjoying the Blizzard,Dad was all hot sweaty and sunburned from being out in the hot sun in the back yard.Then Mom and Nana started dinner and Nana pulled out some chicken drumsticks,sausages,fries, peas and carrots and she made a salad.Mom got the table set and helped get everything in the oven and they sat in the living room together while dad fell asleep and was snoring loudly,but before that Mom tried to help Nana put on a new couch cover and it was too big so they had to take the whole thing off and put the old one back on again.Then Mom checked on dinner and it was ready so she got it all out and got it served and Nana came out to help her and they all ate together and Nana made both Dixie and Candida a fruit bowl to enjoy and did Dixie love that!After Mom and everyone helped to clean up the dishes and put everything away,Mom,dad,and skin sibs all left to go home and Mom came home and took care of the rest of us who had to stay home.Kallie got some chicken bones brought back to him and Peepers and Celine got some animal crackers and Mom cleaned out cages for the night and got dad's things ready for work tomorrow.
Izzy really sounds like a dream bird and how funny he burped too!That is so hilarious!I do believe he enjoys being with all of you and sharing in living in your room with you all!How said his former Parronts gave him up or had to.It sounds like he was well loved by his funny birdonality!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm GCC hugs and soft GCC kisses!Loving you always and forever,sweet Ginger,Love Dixie

  Hi Ginger
This morning is a dull grey morning and the highs for the day will be 67 while the lows will be 55.Its 54 right now with a sunless sky.Mom got us all up and fed and cleaned our cages and vacuumed our room,then she got dad his breakfast and started the coffee for him.We are hoping to get some out side time with Mom today but it doesn't look that way right now.Basically its going to be a quiet day here,with nothing interesting going on.We are glad to have Mom home all day with us today.Mom is hoping to get some of her work done today or at least try to catch up with some of it.She still has to change out her winter things for her summer things in her closet.Your daddy sounds like my daddy,he just loves all those movies and shows that have lots of fighting shooting and gross people dying!That's what I can't figure out either,how our dads can be such peaceful loving guys and still like that kind of thing!

  lose to 7:30pm and Mom is so tired and couldn't wait to get her shoes off and try and relax.I'm so sorry this is short but Mom is really tired right now.Oh how awful that Skye and Rio ate part of their egg like that!Hopefully by the next egg they will do better.Sometimes the first egg from a new clutch after not having recent clutches is used as a throwaway,the next eggs usually go smoothly and Mom will sit on the next eggs that come.Izzy is such a good bird!He must be so happy to be part of your flock,I can't wait to hear about your reactions when you do get to see him!

  Hi Ginger
This morning was another bright sunny warm morning with our highs for the day were 65 and the lows being 48 which they are right now.Mom had another long day.After she got us all up and fed and cleaned,our room vacuumed and the trash and recyclables packed in the car she took Dixie and got him in his harness and leash and put him in the car seat and took off to Nana's.It took her an hour to get there,traffic was backed up all the way to the Mills and Mom only got to drive 8mph all the way down,and as soon as she got to Mashpee she finally saw what the big hold up was,they were cleaning out catch basins right before the rotary right where Mom had to go to get to Nana's.When Mom got to Nana's she got all the trash,recyclables and all of Nana's packed into Nana's car.She got Dixie set up in his cage there in the sun room and then Mom stayed with Nana so she could take a shower.Mom helped Nana by getting her the towel to dry herself off with and helped to put lotion on her and wash her back.Then they both left and went to the dump and Mom got all the recyclables and then the trash,then they went to the Post Office so Nana could drop off the note from the surgeon that Nana has to have a mail box on her house and not across the street.From there they went to Skin sis's apartment so Mom could pick up skin sis's EverSource bill to pay it as she was going to pay hers anyway,Mom was going to go to the bank for her also but there was a discrepancy in her check so Mom didn't have to do that,then they went on to Falmouth to Comcast to pay the cable bill and they got stuck in more construction right at the lights where Mom was supposed to turn to go down that street,there were big trucks blocking the road,orange cones everywhere and the policeman had to point Mom out how to go to get down the street she had to take then to Dollar Tree where both Mom and Nana got some things they needed,Mom got her coffee filters and fruity pebbles to make rice krispie treats with,then they went to Shaw's grocery store where they got some sale items,hamburger,brownie mix and a few other items,then from there they went back to Mashpee and Nana went to the bank,then they stopped off at Subway and shared a half of a veggie sub as it was well after 3:00pm and they hadn't had lunch yet,then they went on to Roche Bros.grocery where they got a few other items on sale and then onto Stop&Shop grocery store to get ice cream on sale two for $4.00 and butter for $1.88.Then they went back to Nana's and had some coffee and a little something to eat while Mom unloaded the car and put her stuff in her car and brought Nana's in the house for her and helped her unpack everything.Nana's legs were killing her from doing so much.By the time Mom cleaned up Dixie's cage and got him harnessed up and in the car seat and helped to clean up from having coffee,it was 6:30pm and by the time Mom got home and unpacked everything here and got us cleaned out and dad his dinner and everything put away it was c
