Green-Cheeked Conure from La Habra, CA

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..

  Flitzer at the Movies
Hello, BirdChannel Friends. Flitzer in The Director's Chair here.

This month is Oscar Month, so we're going to be Squawking about Movies.

Stay tuned as we dish about the stars, the films, those hideous designer gowns and all the poop that hits The Red Carpet.
- - - - -
The beginnings of film:
Silent Films were never silent!
Rather than leave audiences with only the noise of the projector as an accompaniment, theater owners hired a pianist or organist or, in large urban theaters, a full orchestra to play music that fit the mood of the film at any given moment. By the early 1920s, most films came with a prepared list of sheet music to be used for this purpose, and complete film scores were composed for major productions.

Come visit me, Flitzer takes The Director's Chair.

  Hi Ginger
Oh just look at you in your new crown we all just love your Royal Portrait and oh it is such a big thing,it was your special day and we weren't there to help you celebrate!We do wish you had a very special day,you are such a greyt friend to me,so kind and loving!
Early this morning at 4:00am when my dad was leaving for work it was freezing and snowing like mad.In the end we only got about an inch or so more and our highs are 21 and our lows will be 12. Mom got us all cleaned and our breakfast of warm pastene/egg/veggie mix when the phone rang and skin bro was outside in the driveway at 9:15am.He had shoveled more of the driveway as the plows left more snow at the end again while they came through.Then Mom made him breakfast of blueberry waffles and some strawberry shortcake coffee and he stayed with Mom til after 2:00pm.Mom gave all of us birdie cures,nail trims for Dixie,Kallie and Candida as their nails were pinchy.Dad went to get gas this morning before he went to work and he tried to open the door for the gas tank and he couldn't get it opened,so he finally had to leave and get to work and later on in the day he finally got to pry it open,it was frozen shut.Mom and skin bro were looking out the window watching all the wild birds coming and going from the feeders and the bird house and there was a starling who was inspecting the bird house,he had been poking his head into the entry holes and then on the second entry hole he decided he was going to go inside and both Mom and dad sparrow came and chased him away,he kept trying to come back but both sparrows chased him right out of the yard.We are supposed to get another big storm on Monday of a foot or more,this is getting to be ridiculous.Skin sis is coming by from work to visit with Mom in about an hour and other than that its been a boring kind of a day.
Oh would we ever love to pack up this snow as the snow we're getting on Monday will have no place to go when Mom tries to shovel it.On top of the 30 inches we got on Monday and the next foot or more we'll be getting this Monday we could coat and cover your mountains with plenty to spare!Its so cold here now that the snow isn't even melting and driving down our street is like taking a ride on a rocky road,the car bumps along side to side and up and down and you'd better not have anything to eat or drink or your stomach will be teaching you a lesson,my dad has been busy trying to get all the mountains of snow piled to the sky down to make visibility safe but there's just no place to bring the white stuff other than to the beach parking lots and those are getting filled up.In Boston they have a snow melter that melts tons of snow in a short period of time in the trucks!Wish we had that here!
That Gambler movie sounds quite interesting.Emmie is such a sweet little thing as is Pearl.Please give them both hugs for me!
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

  It's Saturday - Flitzer Day
Hello Fellow Feathered-Friends!

Bitter bitter cold here - Dad says he's ready for 'Global-Warming' whatever that is.
Dad stayed in last night - we had popcorn [Yay] and watched "It Happened One Night"
(best picture, 1934). I'm still not sure what "it" is, but the people in the movie must be sad as there wasn't a parrot in the movie.

Bundle Up if you venture outdoors. ~Wings Up~ =Flitzer

  Hi Ginger
First of I want to wish you a belated Happy Hatch day!Mom was supposed to let us sing to you yesterday and she was so tired and trying to catch up with all our visits but with the sudden having to run out to bring my dad the antifreeze and distilled water she had to rush back and get his dinner ready so he could get a shower and get right to bed to get up again at 4:00am and by the time she got all his things made and ready for another 12 hour day she completely forgot.Mom's been getting batty with all my dad's 12 hour days and having to get up at 4am to get him off to work.I am soo sorry I missed your special day!
This morning was a dark,dismal,dreary day with rain on top of the snow.Our highs for the day were to be 38 and our lows will be 14 and right now its 32.Mom got us up and cleaned our cages and got us our warm pastene/egg/veggie mix and then she cleaned our room and vacuumed the whole house.After she got that done she cleaned out the coal/wood stove and got it all set up for the next storm we will have and that will be on Monday where we will be getting another foot of snow here!There's just no place to put the snow we have right now and my dad is working 12 hour days to get rid of it and to get the mountains of snow on the roads down so drivers can see around them.As she was getting ready to scrub the bathrooms skin bro called and he was quite upset so Mom told him to come on over if he could get here safely which he did,so Mom fed him some lunch of angel hair pasta and told Mom that he was still shaking after slamming into an elderly man who suddenly slammed on his brakes with no warning,skin bro tried to stop but he hit him anyway.They both got out of their vehicles and the man waved skin bro on as there was no damage to either car.Then my dad calls Mom and tells her that he will be working 12 hour days on the weekend also.So now he comes home from work,Mom has dinner ready,he eats and goes to bed only to get up at 4:00am and do it all over again.Mom hasn't seen him in nearly a week now!This is going to go on until further notice.I sure do hope that that repeater fixes the problem there for you and I sure agree with you that I wouldn't want strangers in my house either!It sounds like you'll be having a greyt time for SuperBowl Sunday having pot roast and watching it.Mom will be shopping around for a new coal/wood stove probably in the spring when you can get into the house!Would you care to have a couple of feet or two of snow?We have no more room for anymore and Mom is just none too happy about having to go out again to shovel even more!
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 was a bright sunny morning with the temperatures of highs of 33 degrees and lows of 26. we are at 21 right now.Mom got us up and fed and cages cleaned out.Candida and Dixie got to sleep with Mom and Kallie got to stay in his sleeping box in the tv room all night.After Mom got us all settled she got dressed with her warm clothes on and boots and went out to the garage to start tackling the deck and walkway and mail box and as she opened the garage door there was skin bro tackling her side of the driveway and was she ever so glad to see him!While he was working on the driveway,Mom walked around to the other side of the house,she had to walk in the street and down our street to get there to start the walkway and mail box.Mom could barely get a small path made as the snow was so deep and so high and she made a small path all the way up to the deck and found one stair at a time and by the time she got to the top of the deck skin bro was down by the mailbox making that better and larger so the mail truck will fit in to get to the mail box.Then skin bro took over cleaning off the whole deck and he even cleared the snow off the top of the birdhouse and opened up the other entry hole for them.Mom went back inside as her arms were really aching at that point.Skin bro finished the deck and the walkway and Mom made him breakfast of waffles and strawberry shortcake coffee.Then dad called and wanted to know if skin bro would help him give his car a jump start as it wasn't working and had been in the snow for three days and skin bro said he would and hung around with Mom til 3:00pm when dad called and said he got someone at work to help him so skin bro left and Mom got dinner in the oven.Now dad called Mom and told her that he needed her to come up and bring some antifreeze and distilled water from home as his car started smoking and was running very hot so now Mom has to leave and drive on these awful roads to bring dad the stuff and she's so hoping that his car will work with this and it won't be anything more serious.Well,Mom went up and the roads were treacherous and slippery,she even slipped and skidded on the road in front of our garage.And the roads into town were no better,she was so happy that it didn't take dad too long to fill his car with the antifreeze and distilled water and it was really getting dark as they were heading home again,the snow piles were so high you couldn't see around them and it was quite dangerous with those cars that didn't even put their lights on when it was dark.Mom is hoping she just doesn't have to go out tomorrow.When dad came home she made him pork tenderloin,mashed potatoes and mixed veggies.He took his shower and went to bed as he has to get up at 4:00am and he's still on the twelve hour work schedule til further notice.Maybe Mom can get to her house chores tomorrow.And clean out the coal stove and get it set up for the next storm.Mom wants to get a new coal/wood stove.Can you ask your daddy what would be t
