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 **Praying for Panther's mom**

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

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

6 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!
Hi Everybirdie! I am so sorry for not blogging yesterday. Mom had a very bad headache and couldn't keep her eyes open. But, I am happy to report that when she woke up this morning she felt just fine! To make up for not blogging last night, we will be making two toys tonight. For the first toy you will need,

- Cupcake papers (for small/medium birds) or mini cupcake papers (for extra small birds) or coffee filters (for large birds)
- Beads
- Safe stringing material

Take your string and tie a knot at the bottom. String on a bead, and take 3-4 cupcake papers or coffee filters, poke holes in the center, and string them on. String on another bead, and then more papers. Keep stringing on the beads and papers until it reaches your desired size. Then finish off by stringing a bead on top, and tying a loop.

For the next toy you will need,

- Wood (what ever size and type is right for your bird)
- Beads
- Safe stringing material
- OPTIONAL: a bell

Take your string and tie a knot at the bottom. If you are using a bell, tie the knot on the bell. String on a piece of wood, then a bead, then another piece of wood, then another bead, and so on until it reaches the desired size. Finished it off by adding a bead to the top and tying a loop.

Both of these are very simple, but fun to play with! The wooden toy was made for Paris using balsa, and the cupcake paper toy will be for one of the conures. There are pictures of both toys in my gallery. (Mom apologizes for the hideous colors of the cupcake paper toy. She had no pretty colors!)

Thank you so much for voting for me!

Hugs,
Grey Bird

This morning was a bright sunny morning with the highs for the day of 51 the lows of 37 and right now at 7:00pm its 51 and still sunny out there.Mom got dad off to work and then she got some things done and then got us up super early,8:00am and cleaned our cages,swept our room and gave Dixie his antibiotics and Ofloxacin for his eye.Then she left to go to Nana's.Nana finished getting our cousins ready and then they got in Mom's car and went to E.Falmouth to pick up skin sis.What a nightmare it was having to go miles and miles out of the way just to get a few minutes down the road.There's construction going on everywhere in Falmouth and the detours are so long and all around creation.They went to Friendly's for breakfast and got the half priced breakfast which was too big for Mom and Nana to finish.Two eggs,Two slices of ham,Nana got bacon,and two pancakes.Skin sis got sausages and Brioche.From there they went to Falmouth Pet where Nana got some dried fruit for our cousins and the girls there wanted to know if we knew of anyone who wanted a B&G macaw.Mom was talking to him and he took a nut from her but the second time Mom offered him a peanut he nearly took her finger off!The girls said that he had been with his former home for over 35 years and the wife died and the husband couldn't keep him anymore as the Macaw started attacking him,the macaw hates men.And he loves the girl who works at the store but then he has his days where he wants to attack her too!From there they went to Dollar Tree and then Christmas Tree Shops and then Stop&Shop and CVS.Skin sis wanted to go to DQ so they went there and she bought them all Blizzards.Mom had one with fruit in it.From there Mom dropped skin sis back to her apartment as she had to go to PT and she took Nana home and had some tea with her and then left as it was 5:00pm.When she got home dad helped her unpack her car and then load it with all the stuff that skin sis left for the trash and donation places they worked on the other day.Then Mom made dinner for dad(Mac'N'Cheese)cleaned the dishes,our cages and then put all the stuff she got away.She brought some stuff out for the CawCaws to eat,dad had brought them the stuff that Nana brought home for them earlier.Now finally,Mom is here to help us get our notes out!Mom is so tired from driving around all day!

Those antibiotics are just like what your sweet Papa John said they are,if you don't take them long enough until there's an improvement then they're not going to work properly.Papa John is right to demand a refill to keep taking them to really do the job they're intended to to!We are all hoping that the new medication for his leg with work for him quickly!He will always be in our good thoughts and prayers for speedy healing!
How awesome that he got to enjoy his last birthday dinner and to get a free dessert as well to go along with it,you just can't beat that?And that in itself sounds so good!big chocolate chip cookie with ice cream in the middle of the cookie and a candle stuck in the ice cream!Bob is so funny with telling Papa John should've had a road flare in his dessert instead of a candle!LOL!
This morning was a dark rainy cold morning with the highs for the day of 48 the lows of 40 and right now its 43 and raining.After Mom got dad off to work she got us all up and cleaned our cages,swept our room and fed us our bean mix.Then she scrubbed both bathrooms and gave Dixie his antibiotics and eye drops.Other than washing the floors and vacuuming and working on trying to put all the junk Mom and skin sis got out of the spare room packed in her car,and some other chores its going to be another boring dark day here.But at least it will keep Mom home with us all day again.Another uneventful day here but we're happy about that.We never know what's going to happen around here with people popping in unexpectedly like yesterday afternoon skin bro came and stayed for several hours and then skin sis came over at 7:30pm to pick up her big game table from the sun room.

Your sweet daddy will always be in our good thoughts and prayers for his leg to be healed so he won't have to deal with anymore pain.We do hope that his doctor will find some other way to get his leg on the right path to healing.
This morning was a cloudy morning with some sun with our highs for the day of 58 the lows of 39 and its 52 right now.Mom got dad off to work and then got us up,cleaned our cages and swept our room and gave us our bean mix.Dixie got his eye meds and his antibiotics and Mom had to chase Candida back and forth from the dining room to the Bird Room about 10 times as she refused to be put back in her cage to have her breakfast.Mom chopped up the broccoli she bought the other day so it will be ready to use and other than finishing up on some chores she never got to yesterday its going to be another boring day here and you know we don't mind those days at all!

  Hi Ginger!
Hi Everybirdie! Tonight's toy isn't pretty, and very simple, but so much fun to shred! You will need,

- 3 paper bags
- Crinkle paper OR tissue paper
- Safe stringing material
- Treats

Take your first paper bag and open it. Take another paper bag, and without opening it, put it in the first one. When it is in, you can stick your hand in and open it up. When that one is opened, take one more closed one and stick it inside the others, and then open that one too. Stuff the bags with crinkle paper or tissue paper, and throw a treat or two in it. Close the bags, and fold over the tops. Take a piece of rope, make a loop, and then make a hole near the top of the bag (that goes through the front and folded over part), and string the loop through the hole.

I know this toy isn't the prettiest or most amazing, but Jester and I just love them! And they are so easy to make, and mom uses the hanging loops over and over again. LOL. Picture in my gallery!

Thanks for voting for me!

Grey Bird

  Hi Ginger
It sure sounds like your poor daddy was really working hard and all that standing and lifting really does a job on his leg and makes it sore all over again.Please know that he's in our good thoughts and prayers constantly for something to be done to ease the pain and have the wound heal once and for all.Oh what a pain those smart phones are,they seem to be too smart for my Mom and that's why she doesn't have any of those!And Aunt Lori is right the grand kids would definitely know how to run those things!
This morning was a bright sunny morning with the highs of 51 the lows of 40 and at 6:30pm its 53 and quite cold out there.Mom got us all up and cleaned our cages,swept our room and gave us our bean mix,then she got dad his breakfast of blueberry pancakes and coffee and then Mom started to scrub her oven.That took her all morning and she was in the middle of it when skin sis showed up.Mom finished cleaning the oven all outside and the inside and got that all shined up then she spent the rest of the day helping skin sis get rid of most of the stuff she had in the room off the Mud Room.They got lots of stuff for donation and now Mom has a whole lot of stuff to take to the dump and donation centers.She may have to take several trips with all that stuff.Dad helped Mom carry the heavy boxes out to skin sis's car for her.Skin sis still has to come and get the rest of her big stuff,the big game table and the big desk out of the sun room and skin bro still has to get his two box springs and two mattresses out of the sun room also.At least the work out room looks a little better with all that junk gone.Then Mom had to make a late lunch for skin sis and she tried making chicken burgers but they were taking so long to cook,they were frozen solid,so while they were cooking Mom made some chicken noodle soup and they had that while the chicken burgers were cooking.By the time they finished the soup the chicken burgers were done and they had them.Mom wrapped up the rest of the burgers and skin sis took them home for her dinner.By the time Mom cleaned up the dishes and the kitchen it was 5:00pm and skin sis left shortly after.Mom had us both out on the kitchen table to get some sunshine and to join in on everything that was going on.Candida took a nice shower while Mom was trying to wash the dishes,she even pulled the dish out of Mom's hand so she could hog the water!Then Mom took a nice shower and had to come back down and make dad his dinner of cheese bacon omelet and pan fried raisin toast. After she cleaned up those dishes and put everything away she finally got to come in and begin our notes to everyone.Mom is hoping that tomorrow will be a nice quiet day.
Tell Papa John that he was right about cleaning the oven with the citrus orange cleaner it did come out nice!

  Hi Ginger!
Hi Everybirdie! Today mom went out to the pet store to pick up some pellets, and not only did she buy pellets, but she came home with TWO little BABY CHICKENS. They are super fuzzy and she thinks they are adorable. You can go see a picture of them on their page (The Peepers). They don't have names yet, mom is still thinking about them. They are very loud, they keep PEEP, PEEP, PEEPING. Mom thinks I will pick up the peeping noise by the end of the week, LOL. Anyway, for tonight's toy you will need,

- A wooden base (one that has 3 holes)
- Square wooden blocks
- Wooden slats
- Beads
- Paper treat cups
- Finger traps
- Safe stringing material

Take a piece of rope and tie a loop on it. String a bead on under the loop, and then string the rest of the rope through the middle hole on the wooden base. Add another bead, and knot it. Take another piece of rope, tie a knot, string on a bead, and the string the rest of the rope through one of the holes on the ends. On the piece that is hanging down, string on a wooden block, a wooden slat, and another wooden block. Take a treat cup, poke a hole in the center, and string it on facing down. Take a finger trap, a string that on through one opening all the way to the other. Take another treat cup, and string that on. Then string on another wooden block, and a wooden slat. Then tie it off. Then repeat that process through on the other end hole.

Jester is going to enjoy this one. Picture in my gallery!

I think that Aunt Lori's parronts should get a simple phone that they can make calls on and get calls and not keep that confusing smart phone at all!
This morning was a dark,dull,dismal,dreary,rainy day here with the highs for the day of 56 the lows of 47 and right now its 59 but it feels like its 39.Mom got us up and cleaned our cages,fed us our bean mix and swept our room.She got dad his breakfast of waffles and then she got some bills written out and put in the mailbox.Its going to be another boring day here with nothing of interest going on but that's just the way we like it.Mom was so tired from driving around all day that she slept late so now she's got to hurry and catch up on all her chores!

  Hi Ginger!
Hi Everybirdie! Tonight we are going to make little balls made out of toilet paper or paper towel rolls. You will need,

- A toilet paper or paper towel roll
- A treat

Take your roll, and cut four rings off of it. The rings can be what ever thickness you'd like, but we tend to cut ours a bit on the thick side. Start by taking two of the rings and sticking one inside of the other, so that it forms an X. Take a third ring, and slip it over the other two. Now you should add a treat. Finally, take the fourth ring and slip that over the others, and you're done!

These are super fun the play with. I love them! There is a picture in my gallery.

This morning was a beautiful sunny day with the highs for the day of 65 the lows of 49 and right now at 7:00pm its 61 and getting cold.Mom got dad off to work and then she came in and got us all cleaned and fed and swept our room.Then she finished loading the trash in her car and took off to Nana's.When she got there she loaded all of her trash and recyclables along with Nana's into Nana's car.The car was so full,then skin sis came over and they all got in Nana's car with Mom driving and they went to the dump where Mom got rid of all the recyclables,then she drove to the trash tunnel and got rid of all the trash.From there they went to Market Basket down by the Sagamore Bridge where Mom got 1% gal.milk for $1.99 each,then she got frozen veggies for 99 cents each and she got 10 bags of those,frozen pizza for 2/$5.00,fresh broccoli,cereal,soup and some other things.Nana and skin sis bought some good buys also.From there they went to Mom's house in the Mills to drop off all her groceries as it was quite hot here when they got out of Market Basket.Mom quickly unloaded her frozen groceries in her freezers,from there Mom drove to Hyannis so Nana could go to Sears in the Mall and return her cell phone,then from there Mom drove back to Mashpee to Nana's house to drop off her frozen food,Mom unloaded her groceries and helped Nana put them away,then from there they went to Skin sis's apt in Falmouth where Mom helped skin sis carry up all the groceries she got to her apartment.From there they went to the gas station where Mom got Nana's car filled up,from there they went back to Mashpee to the Fro Yo place and they all had some fro yo that skin sis got for them,from there they went to Stop&Shop in Mashpee where both Mom and Nana got some things they needed that forgot to get at MB.Then as it was after 4:00pm they drove back to Nana's where they all had some chamomile tea and some dessert and Skin bro met them there.After they were done with that Mom and skin sis left as skin bro had left sooner after he had some tea and cake that Nana served him.Mom didn't get home til nearly 6:00pm and dad helped unload the car while Mom put more frozen items away and got dad some dinner and then she came in to see us.We had to stay home today.Mom and all of us are bumming because we missed on a such a glorious warm day out there.Tonight it's going to rain and the weather doesn't look too good for the weekend at all.Mom got dad some tuna noodle casserole she had made and frozen.After she cleaned up the dishes and got our cages cleaned out for the night she finally got to come here to help us with our notes.Dixie will get more eye drops later on.Dad gave us all our snacks and today is our fister Celine's hatchday,she's 18 years old today.Mom has had a really long day today and doesn't want to get into a car for a long time but that won't last long!
Our good thoughts and prayers are going out for your poor sweet daddy so he can find out what's causing all that pain he has

Hi Everybirdie! Tonight we are making a cup holder shredder toy. You will need,

- A paper cup holder
- Paper treat cups
- Coffee filters
- A small paper plate
- Cupcake papers
- Finger traps
- A bead
- Safe string material

Take your cup holder, and start by putting a coffee filter in each one of the cup compartments. Next take you treat cups, and push one of those into each compartment (you may have to force them in to fit). Then stick a coffee filter in each one of the treat cups. Next, poke a hole in the middle of the cup holder, take a piece of string and knot it at the end, and stick it through the hole you made (so that the knot is on the bottom, and the string is sticking out the top part). On that string, string on your paper plate, a few coffee filters, a few cupcake papers, three finger traps, and a bead, then knot it. Near the top of the cup holder, poke a hole, then make a loop with your string, and thread the loop through that hole.

Mom makes these for me all the time. I LOVE them! There is a picture in my gallery! (:

  Hi Ginger
Mom won't use any of those complicated smart phones,the skin sibs have them and she would never be able to run one of them!They do way too many things that Mom could never figure out!
This morning was a cool morning with our highs for the day of 51 the lows of 40 and right now its 49 at 7:00pm.Mom got dad off to work,then got us up and our cages cleaned the floor swept and brought us our bean mix while she got everything ready to go out to Nana's.She got us both in the carrier and then we took off.When we got there it was too cold in the sun room for us to stay there so we stayed in our cages in the kitchen.Mom and Nana took off for Hyannis where they stopped at Friendly's for breakfast.Both Mom and Nana took half of theirs home with them as it was quite filling.They had 2 eggs,2 large brioche french toast,2 slices of ham.From there they went to Shaw's grocery store where they got lots of clearance items,Reese's ice cream cups for $1.00 for a box of 6,some Greek Yogurt frozen bars for $1.00 and some pork ribs for a BOGO.Mom picked up some chips for dads lunches for BOGO.From there they went to the Nature Food Store in Centerville so Nana could get Trixie II and Bella some dried fruit,which she did dried cherries and from there they went back to Mashpee so Mom could pump some gas into her car,she got it for ten cents off the $2.07 price with her Stop&Shop points.From there they went to Stop&Shop where Nana got a few things she needed and they made one other stop,but Nana's hip and leg were really hurting her so badly.When they got back to Nana's Mom unloaded the car and brought all of Nana's things in for her and put her frozen things in the freezer for her.Then Nana made Mom and herself a salad for lunch and as it was after 4:00pm Mom packed us up and got us in our carriers,Nana had made us some fruit bowl and we wanted to finish that first.We got to spend a few hours in the sun room as it got really warm out there.Candida took another bath in her water dish.So Mom wanted to wait til she was dried off more before we left.Mom had our carrier wrapped with a warm blanket.When Mom got home,dad unloaded the car while Mom put everything away.Nana had sent home some linguine and meatballs for dad's dinner and Mom heated that up while she got us all settled back in our cages.She put everything away and then all of a sudden she was worried that she never put the gas cap on her car after she filled up and ran back out to the garage and checked it and it was on.Mom is losing it!Mom is so tired and she had to give Dixie more meds and more eye compresses.He had a bad night last night and his eye was really awful.Mom held him for a good part of the night and both Dixie and Candida never went back to their cages until three am.Dixie's eye looked much better this morning but it was last night that it was leaking all over his head and his eye looked so bad.

  Hi Ginger!
Hi Everybirdie! Tonight we are making a cute little foot toy. You will need,

- A piece of wood
- 2 finger traps
- Mini cupcake papers
- 2 beads
- Safe stringing material

Take your string and tie a knot at the end, then string on a bead. Take a finger trap, cut it in half, poke a hole in the middle of each half, and then string them on, crossing them so that they form an X. Flatten out a cupcake paper, poke a hole in the center, and string that on. Now string on your piece of wood, then another flattened out cupcake paper. Take another finger trap, cut it in half, and string it on the same way as the first. Now string on another bead, knot it, and you're done!

Jester in going to like this little toy. There is a picture in my gallery!

Thanks for voting for me!

Hugs,
Grey Bird

  Hi Ginger
This morning was a dark wet morning with the highs for the day of 50 the lows of 43 and right now its 48 and a much cooler day than the last two days were.We had rain early this morning and then the sun came out but its a mostly cloudy day here and looks like its going to rain again.I don't think we'll be going out again today.Mom got dad off to work and then she got us up and cleaned our cages and swept our room and then we got some bean mix that Nana made for us.Mom put some prescription eye drops in Dixie's eye as it was really irritating him and quite red and swollen again.Mom may have to put a collar on him to stop him from rubbing it.Mom will be home all day with us and because she spent the whole afternoon outside on the garden yesterday she's going to be catching up on the chores she has to get done in the house.Its going to be a boring day here for us and we had so wanted to go outside and enjoy the sunshine again,but the weather just isn't cooperating with us today.But then Mom will be here with us so we can't complain!
It's good to see a fresh new face in the spotlight box and to have our Bird Channel messages in our inbox again!Does this mean they're going to start working on BC to work right for us again?
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,Dixie

Hi Everybirdie! Tonight we are making paper plate tacos. You will need,

- A paper plate (a full sized one for a bigger bird or a mini one for a small bird)
- Safe stringing material
- Cupcake papers
- Wood slats
- Finger Traps
- Crinkle paper
- A bead

Fold your paper plate in half, and poke a hole through the middle. String a piece of rope through the hole, and knot it on one side. Take a few cupcake papers, flatten them, poke a hole in the center, and then string them on the side of string that is not knotted. Then string on a wooden slat, and poke a hole in the center of two finger traps, and string them on. Then string on a smaller wood piece, a bead, and then knot that side of the rope. Then poke a hole near the top of the plate, make a loop with rope, and string the loop through that hole. Now take crinkle paper and fill the middle of the plate, make sure that it is sticking out of the sides too!

These are really fun to destroy! There is a picture in my gallery!

  Hi Ginger
How aggravating is that to have someone pounding on your door well before 7:00am on a weekend of all things!Mom hates it when the phone rings super early like that and its some stupid telemarketing caller to sell you something.She got one of those calls last Sunday morning at 6:30am.
This morning was a bright sunny morning with the highs for the day of 51 the lows of 40 and right now it's 51.Mom got us all up and got dad his breakfast of blueberry pancakes and coffee and then she came in and cleaned our cages and swept our room and then gave us our bean mix with cherry juice.Then she vacuumed the whole downstairs and our room and then she started cleaning and washing the windows in the dining room,tv room and the china cabinet window doors.It was getting late and Mom will continue with finishing up more windows tomorrow.She still has to do the windows in our room.At least the sun can come in without having to be stopped by a white film,the windows are clear now again!It's really nice outside and Mom went out to beat out some area rugs and she stood on the deck in the sunshine and it was actually quite warm just like summer!Mom would've taken us out for a little while but the wind was still cold so we will have to wait a little bit longer for our chance to get outside!Other than Mom working on getting some chores done and dad working out in the yard fighting the wind and getting the leaves in piles for the yard guy to come and take them away,its going to be a nice quiet boring day here!And you know just how happy we are with that kind of a day!

Hi Everybirdie! Tonight we will be making seagrass mat swings. You will need,

- A seagrass mat
- Plastic chain (either new, or from an old swing)
- Plastic links
- Straw beads
- An SS ring (or you could use a plastic link instead)

Take your seagrass mat, and cut it to what ever size you need for your bird. Take four stands of plastic chain, and put a link at the bottom of each one. Using the links on the bottom of each chain, hook a chain on each corner of the mat. Once they are hooked on, take a straw bead and use it to cover the opening on each link. Now take your SS ring (or plastic link if you prefer), and connect all of the pieces of chain at the top onto it. If you are using a ring, make sure you close it really well so there is no gap, and if you are using a link, cover the opening with a straw bead. After that you're done! You can hang beads off the chain or a toy in the middle if you'd like.

Paris loves his little swing! We also have a full sized seagrass mat one for the conures, but mom has to make a repair on it as one of the chains went missing. LOL. There is a picture of Perry's little one in my gallery!

  Hi Ginger
This morning was a dull sunless cloudy and very windy morning here and is continuing to be so.The highs for the day will be 45 with the lows of 39.Its 42 right now and quite cold.Mom got us all up this morning and cleaned our cages and swept our room.Candida was very upset with the new dust pan Mom brought home yesterday.It's a bright pink and black almost paisley like design with white background.She keeps yelling and fluttering all over her cage whenever Mom tries to sweep under our cage and brings it near her.Mom won't use the broom that comes with it which is done in the same colors only the bristles on the broom are pink.She doesn't mind the broom that Mom has been using which is white with peach/orange bristles,so Mom went back to using the old broom but Candida still doesn't like the dust pan,Mom likes it because it doesn't fall apart on her when she uses it like the old one does.Mom gave us our bean mix and then she got dad his breakfast of waffles and coffee and then is going to finish up the chores she never got done yesterday while she was gone all day.Its going to be a nice quiet boring day here which we all love with both Mom and dad home with us.Dad cut up some thick cardboard tubing he brought home from work for us so we can have those to chew on and play with.
UPDATE: Skin bro couldn't take Nana to church as he was sick,throwing up and had a bad headache so Mom and Dad wound up taking Nana to church.Then Nana had them stay for pizza dinner.Mom got the pizza in the oven and Nana made chocolate raspberry coffee to go with the very berry pie and Ice cream she had for dessert.Mom helped to clean up the kitchen and wash the dishes before she left.She and dad finally made it back home by 7:15pm.We were praying that we wouldn't be missing the Milonga tonight!

  Hi Ginger!
Hi Everybirdie! Tonight we are making cupcake foot toys. Mom saw these made for hamsters and guinea pigs on etsy, so she had to make one for us birds! You will need,

- Mini cupcake papers
- 1 bagel
- 1 vine ball
- 1 red or pink bead
- Safe stringing material

Take a short piece of your string, and tie a knot at the bottom. Take a few mini cupcake papers, and poke a small hole in the middle of them, and string them on your rope. Then take a bagel, and string that on so that it sits in the bottom of the cupcake papers. Take a vine ball, a string it on so that it sits on the bagel. Now string your bead on top of the ball, and tie a knot.

(A word of caution: please only give vine balls to your bird with supervision! They are a great toy, but mom worries that a smaller bird could get vine pieces wrapped around their neck if they chew it so that it comes apart. Mom loves to let us play with them, but only with supervision!)

There is a picture of the toy in my gallery!

I hope that mom is home tomorrow night so that I can make it to the Milonga! So I hope to see you guys there. (:

This morning was a sunny morning but very cold and very windy.The highs for the day were 47 with the lows of 38.After Mom got dad off to work she collected the rest of the trash and got that and the recyclables loaded in the car.Then she got our breakfast ready and got us up early and cleaned our cages and swept our room.We got our bean mix and then Mom checked Dixie's eye and it was red and sore looking and half closed so she gave him some saline drops to help make him feel better.We had to stay home.Then she left for Nana's and when she got there she loaded both their recyclables and trash in Nana's car and Nana got ready after she finished cleaning our cousins cages and room and gave them their breakfast.They took off to the dump and Mom got all the recyclables in their bins and then the trash thrown over the wall and was it ever windy,Mom had all she could do to hang on to everything that it didn't get air borne and take off.From there they went back to Nana's to wait for skin sis to come over so Nana made Mom and herself a waffle and some tea.Skin sis finally got there sometime after 11:30am and they went to Falmouth to Ocean State Job Lot where both Nana and Mom got some good buys,Mom got some water enhancer for $1.50 each and a much nicer dust pan that stands up with a broom attached for our room.Then from there they went to WalMart where Mom got some juice boxes for dad's lunch box for $1.88 for the Kool-Aid ones.From there they went to Petco and the Dollar Tree where Mom got a few things and then skin sis wanted to go to DQ where she bought them all a Blizzard both Mom and Nana got ones with fruit in them skin sis got a royal cheesecake one.Before they could eat any of it skin bro texted skin sis to tell her he was in the vicinity to check the apartment next door to skin sis so skin sis texted the landlord and she was to meet them at skin sis's apartment in 20 minutes so they had to hurry through the construction and all the detours that were going on all around Falmouth's roads.Skin sis got there and both she and Mom went up to meet with the landlord while Nana waited in the car as Nana couldn't get up all those 17 stairs.Skin bro was stuck in traffic and the detours and he was 20 minutes late getting there.The apartment is getting all new paint and blinds on the windows and carpets cleaned up and the ceiling fixed where someone bumped it with something.When skin bro got there he checked it out and he told the landlord he would think it over and get back to him.Skin bro got in his car and Mom and skin sis got in her car and in the meantime from all the time Mom and skin sis were up in the apartment Nana had gotten sick while waiting for everyone to get back.They went right home from there and Mom stayed and had some pie and coffee with Nana and then left.It was 6:00pm and Mom had to hurry and get dad's dinner,clean out our cages,clean up after dad's dinner,put everything away and finally now at 8:00pm is getting to our notes.Mom is so t

  Hi Ginger!
Hi Everybirdie! Today we will be making paper cup garland. You will need,

- Paper sauce cups
- Crinkle Paper
- Safe stringing material

Take however many paper sauce cups you'd like to use (we used 7), and poke holes through both sides near the bottom. Take your rope, and tie a loop. Start stringing on the cups, all facing the same way, and when you have them all on finish it off by tying another loop. Now fill all the cups up with crinkle paper. To hang it, put a quick link in each loop and hang it like garland.

This is a favorite of the conures. (: As always, there is a picture of it in my gallery!

  Hi Ginger
It seems like that grooming thing is going around BC like wild fire!We had all ours done on the weekend and are so glad its all over with!I can't tell which is worse the beak dremmeling or the nail clipping.I really don't mind the weight being taken as it doesn't hurt at all!I am very good sitting on the scale for Mom and even when I go to the vet!
This morning was a bright sunny morning a little on the cool side with lots of wind.The highs for the day will be 47 the lows of 37.Right now its 51.Mom got dad off to work and then she got us up and cleaned our cages and had to really work at cleaning up the mess that Candida made of chewed wood toy and cardboard box confetti which was just everywhere,even stuck to the wood paneled wall next to our cage.Its going to be a nice uneventful day here today with Mom staying home with us all day long.She's going to try and finish working on cleaning out the hall closet of towels and other things that have been thrown in there.Skin sis called and wanted to come over today but Mom told her to stay home and rest up as she'll be seeing her tomorrow again.Mom needs some time to catch up on getting these chores done without anymore interruptions,she doesn't have all that many days in which she can get things done and there doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day to get anything done when she does start!We are only so happy to have Mom home even if its going to be a boring day for us!

Hi Everybirdie! Today we are going to make palm shredder toys that can be used as a hanging toy for a smaller bird or a foot toy for a bigger bird. You will need,

- A roll of palm shredder
- Beads
- Bird safe stringing material

Tie a knot at the bottom of your rope. Take your roll of palm shredder, and poke a hole in a piece. String it on the rope and add a bead. Take the palm shredded and fold it over the bead, so that there is a loop on one side, and then poke another hole and string it on.. Add another bead, and do the same thing. Repeat this until it reaches your desired size. To finish it off as a toy for a smaller bird, add a bead to the top and tie a loop. To finish it off as a foot toy, just knot it really tight.

Thanks for voting for me!

Grey Bird
