I'm so sorry that you've lost your friend, Bubbles. How lonesome it must feel without her after being accustomed to her company. And to Pebbles' family, my sympathies for the sadness you're feeling in your little finch's absence. Small or big, the death of a bird leaves a huge hole in the heart.

With condolences from one who knows the emptiness of loss.

I can't believe that it's been a month already. I mean, really, it's just flown by with all the help from all my friends. Most I've known for quite a while but now I have new ones that I hope to keep closer to. THANK YOU is all I can say....besides asking y'all to come to the Ball tonight. I'm asking for Ballroom. I love this music. Well I like all music but Ballroom is so fun. So expect a lot of Cole Porter, Benny Goodman and others of that era. So Please come. Mom says I'll have to rest today until I'm sent for but she's as excited as I am.
Final Finch List 3--
Tier 3 - AggressiveThese birds need a very spacious enclosure with plenty of visual barriers in order to be housed together. Keep a close eye on them and separate birds that quarrel. *Note that the Java Finch is a peaceful bird that may be housed with birds from Tier 2 and possibly Tier 1, but is placed in Tier 3 because of its intimidating size and ability to coexist with the other birds in Tier 3.
Cutthroat Finch (do not mix with waxbills)
Diamond Firetail Finch (do not mix with other Australian finches)

Java Sparrow/Finch (see *Note above)

  Hi B & P
hehehe yeah we went through the bath thing today. first Ipo then Sid and all of a sudden Kiwi wanted one and mom had water everywhere. hehehe
mostly sunny and 70 outside! hehehe
This is in honor of Bubbles and Pebbles who have supported me this month and long before...

Black Throated Finch

The Black-throated Finch has two subspecies, with intermediate forms found between the two.

Poephila cincta cincta is a white-rumped form found south of Townsville[5]
Poephila cincta atropygialis is a black-rumped form found north of Cairns, and is possibly extending its range southwards.[5]

[edit] Description

Measuring around 10 cm (4 in) in length, the Black-throated Finch has a short black bill, lores, and throat, sharply delineated from the rest of the pale grey head. The wings, breast and belly are pale pinkish brown, and the short tail is black, while the rump is black in northern forms and white in southern.[6]
[edit] Distribution and habitat

The Black-throated Finch was traditionally found from Cape York south through eastern Queensland and into northeastern New South Wales in the vicinity of Tenterfield, however has not been recorded in New South Wales since 1994. It is sedentary or locally nomadic. It is found in grassy open forested habitats,[6] generally near bodies of water such as rivers.
[edit] Threats

For the past few decades, the population of this species has declined; the southern subspecies has been declared threatened in New South Wales,[7] and vulnerable in Queensland, and appears to have vanished from 80% of its former range.[8] The reason for the declined population is probably due to spread of pastoralism, changes in fire regime and increases in the density of native woody weeds in grassy savannas. A national Management Plan was published in 2004 by the NSW and Qld Governments.[9]

Much of the remaining population is located near Townsville, and there have been issues with development encroaching on suitable habitat.[10]
[edit] Behaviour

The Black-throated Finch is found in flocks of up to 30 birds.[5]
[edit] Feeding

The Black-throated Finch primarily eats seed from various species of grass, and also eats spiders and ants. In the wet season, birds also hunt flying termites.
[edit] Breeding

Breeding may occur from September to January in the southern parts of its range, and after the monsoon season in February onwards in the north. One or two broods are laid during this time. The nest is a round structure woven from dried grasses with tube-like entrance placed high in a eucalypt 5 metres above the ground. Four to six matte white oval eggs are laid, measuring 12 x 17 mm.[11]
[edit] Aviculture

The species breeds and survives readily in captivity.[12]
[edit] Origin

Origin and phylogeny has been obtained by Antonio Arnaiz-Villena et al.[13] Estrildinae may have originated in India and dispersed thereafter (towards Africa and Pacific Ocean habitats).

  Hello Bubbles & Pebbles...
Punkin curtsies to all...
I just want to THANK YOU for all the wonderful things you have given to me...First for all the votes for the poor homeless birds. Second for all the joy you have given this little finch and her flock...nothing is better than friends both old and new. And lastly, for the votes. You all have been so generous.
Now Everybirdie wants to know what we're gonna do this Thurs....we don't know. Nope not at all. We're real happy to be able to spend time with our family and skin sis if they come over.
Now all I need is at least 100 more votes to get me into the castle and a whole bunch of birdies to share it with.
Oh and since we are here and not much is happening I will do as promised...tell you about us little finches. And since I'm an Orange Weaver guess what I'm starting with.....Origin
Africa

Area of distribution
Across northern Africa, from Senegal to Ethiopia and Tanzania, and south to Angola and South Africa.

Disposition
Aggressive while breeding.

Physical descriptions
When in color ("nuptial plumage"--which occurs seasonally), the male appears as follows: black beak, the top of the head and area around the eyes are black, the abdomen is black, the wings are brown, and the rest of the bird (chin, throat, chest, nape of the neck, back, undertail, and upper tail coverts) are orange to red in color.

When out of color ("eclipse plumage"), he appears similar to the hen: sparrow-like coloration with horn-colored beak, tawny brown body color with dark streaks to the feathers, cream belly.

Sexing
The cocks seasonally enter a more colorful black-and-orange nuptial plumage which the hens do not sport.

  Hi B & P
Part 19...
Well, we're here in our house but all mom and dad got is their bed...one of those blow up type (mom really likes it but it's low) and an office chair, a rocker and a table. Skin sis gave mom some plates and a pan too. With all our stuff in Reno still we were kinda stuck. hehehe A new friend gave us a couch as well as a desk and craigslist got us a recliner. Mom had some cookie and cake pans packed in this trailer. Another friend and skin sis gave mom some extra clothes...most hers are in the other trailer. hehe We may not have a lot but we're happy we're all together...well almost....
Sadly Big Finch was found on the bottom of his cage. he was fine the night before. And we lost little Cali. She was a sweet little zebra. We have no idea how old she was but she came to us in very poor health. We were surprised she survived the trip she was so bad. But she did real well and enjoyed eating the ants too. It wasn't until we had been here in our own home for a month that she was found on the bottom of the cage. We did have a place to put them here...unlike the baby.
We have been enjoying all this wonderful NC weather and being able to be taken outside in November is really something for us.
Thank you all for your special votes. Hugs and kisses--Punkin.

  Hi Bubbles & Pebbles
THANK YOU ALL FOR VOTING FOR ME YESTERDAY. WE GOT 56 VOTES AND SUGAR IS SENDING $1.00/VOTE! THAT SURE HELPS THE IOWA PARROT RESCUE! THANK YOU ALL!!!!!
Part 18....
As many of you know, the earthquake was north of NC but we felt it real strong. I heard that there were a lot of little quakes in Nv after we left too.
SO, as I said yesterday, a lady called dad back about a home and so mom, dad and Jay go off to look at the place. When they drive up it's so lovely, green and pretty plants around and a front porch. They get to look inside and when they come back they're all smiles. WE GOT A NEW HOME!! It'll be a couple of weeks cause they're working on the place still but it's OURS! They think it's great that there's birds in the family too.
Mom is showing everyone photos of the place and skin sis says that she and the grands want to go see it too. So off they go and while they're gone we have our own happy dances and songs.
Now we're here and we've so enjoyed it. Mom put a shade up for us and we get to spend lots and lots of time outside. We still don't get to stay out all night because of cats and other beasties. But we don't mind at all because we're used to it. Not only that but we're getting to talk to the Cardinals here...there's 2 pair. The mockingbirds...there's LOTS of them. And there's a bird that looks a lot like me only bigger. In fact mom came outside and saw that bird and thought it was me. hehehehehe It comes around a little but flies away when mom comes out. We tell it that mom won't hurt it or try to catch it but still it doesn't believe me.
We got our own room again and can make as much noise as we want too. WHEEEEEEEEEE! We live close to a little town named Angier. WE LOVE IT!

Hugs and Kisses to all of you--Punkin

  Hi B & P
Please be sure to vote today because Sugar is making a donation to Iowa Parrot Rescue for every vote I get. Please help out that worthy cause...and me too. hehehe Part 17....
These days have been the most relaxing because we're outside a lot and so is mom. She brings out the bigger birds and just listens to the quiet...until the grands discover she's out there. hahaha
One day we're all enjoying ourselves when we feel a rumbling...only us birds feel it for a long time and we ALL scream to get the humans attention. Then they start feeling it. Mom had taken Ipo, Sidney inside for a nap with her and we hear them screaming...it feels like a washing machine is off balance. Seems like forever before it stops. Mom comes outside and says the walls were weaving a bit. We didn't think we needed an earthquake to welcome us to NC but there it was. Mom got calls from Nv asking if we felt at home now. hehehe
Then the very next day dad gets a call back from a lady about a house........
Just in case y'all was wondering about the bark picture, we liked it a lot cause our friends were on there until right before dad snapped the picture. hehehe
Thanks for the votes and here's hugs to all my friends.--Punkin

You guys were the first to vote for me today. hehehe Oh and Oatie says to ask if you could tell Miss Jazmyn HI from him.
Part 14....
This is the most moisture we've ever had that was constant...and it's HOT! Mom comes out every now and then to make sure we're all doing well. AW MOM!! *pant, pant* We like it out here *pant, pant* She says we can go out again tomorrow.
Well, while we wait to be allowed outside again I'll try to bring you up on why we're in with a non bird person. Oh sure they have an iguana...we scare her to death and she runs into skin sis' bedroom. hehehe Don't ya just love it?
Skin sis and her hubby have been trying to get mom and dad to move to NC for several years. When dad decided to retire early due to his health, he said he wanted to go east since it's cheaper than Nv!! So East we came and we've had to move in with skin sis and the grands. They scare us a lot but they don't really seem to try to scare us...they just watch us so close it makes us nervous. You know they got both big and little chickens here? Yep, mom says the little ones are banties but they're still the size of Sophie. They don't come up on the porch so we don't worry about them getting us.
There are lots and lots of birds around here and we get to talk to all our wild cousins.
Oh boy, Sophie is warming up...it's getting time to go to bed. OOPS! Kiwi is the first to sound off...There goes Oatie! hahaha Sidney says that Jay, skin sis' hubby, is all wide-eyed! WAY TO GO SOPHIE! hahahahaha Jay's nearly covering his ears. AW DAD! MOM! *sigh* Mom says that all the parrots should TRY to quiet down. Jay's a bit overwhelmed at the noise. Don't know why cause his kids are more noisy all the time. Oh well, he'll get used to it.
Thanks for voting. HUGS to you all--Punkin

  Hi you guys
I wanted to make sure you got today's story... I added some photos of our travel
Dad was planning on taking pics of each state but it didn't work out because of the pace they set. And some states were entered at night.
Part 12.....Dad says that our travels are nearly over!!So mom keeps checking the tom-tom to check the route...Dad NEVER set it he's using his computer for the route. So he's asking mom what road should he take and all. Hey that's NOT the road....the road is back there! DAD! Can't you read? MOM! YOU BLIND????!!! Wow did we see lots of pretty country all cause they got all switched around. hehehe
Dad was trying to save money by avoiding toll roads and so we got lost a few times. What lovely country. All green and all. We missed most rains too which was lovely. So FINALLY we see the WELCOME TO NC sign. Not long now. Raleigh is only a hundred or so miles. Boy is it ever taking a long time getting to Raleigh....HEY DAD! THERE'S THE ROAD TO RALEIGH! Oh, we gotta take a different turn? Thata girl, mom! Call skin sis and find out the RIGHT road....OH THIS IS THE RIGHT ROAD. Sorry dad. This trail is Old Sorrell Rd? Pretty isn't it? THERE IT IS!! HEY LOOK HOW PRETTY TREES EVERYWHERE! GREEN EVERYWHERE! We're stopped! Mom is getting ALL us birds out. Oh this IS wonderful air! no smog here for sure. HI all our wild cousins!
Hey mom's getting out all our cages and putting them together. YES mom is putting together ONLY THE MOST IMPORTANT CAGES. Oh brother, can you believe we're in with a person who's not ANY experience with birds..okay they had a keet once but he couldn't take the noise. Wait'll Sophie starts calling!! heheheehe. Mom got all the cages built and us birds in them. ALL THIS ROOM! THANK YOU MOM!
Thus we landed in the Raleigh, NC area....tomorrow you get to hear about other parts of our new life......
Thank you so much for voting. HUGS and KISSES to all--Punkin

  Hi B & P
Hey don't forget that all the stories are on Shaggy's page. He's such a great frother considering he's a canary.
There were two main reasons I wasn't able to get back to everybird yesterday...first was that the grands came for the night and we were all afluster...especially mom!! She even started sending out the story from the day before! And here's the MAIN reason..We got back on the computer late in the evening and it was so slow on BC...ONLY BC... that it took 45 mins to send 8 or 9 messages!! NO JOKE! Mom says she's really sorry and does hope this day is better.
Part 11....We wake up expecting the world to be still like normal but it isn't! This cramping is the pits for sure. All us finches are pushing and shoving for space. MOM WE'RE HUNGRY! "Sorry kids, I'll feed you when we stop for breakfast or gas...not the same thing at all so get that out of your minds" Now how did she know we're giggling about that? She's better with us birds than we realized.
When we stop for gas mom feeds us all VERY carefully so none of us gets out again. Then she goes to Big and takes the nest out....baby is dead. Mom nearly cried. Woulda too if it wasn't her turn to drive. Mom had to put the baby and nest in the trash because we didn't have a place we could bury them....We were all quiet the rest of the morning...except Big. It was so traumatic for even dad. We're so glad that this was the last bad experience for the rest of the trip. WHEW! Just wanted all the parronts to know NOT ALL the trip was bad.
So mom and dad checked on us a lot. The clouds were with us most of the time and lots of comfortable weather. When we stopped it was nice enough for mom and dad to go inside because a coolish breeze, mom says WIND, so we'll go with that since she's here writing. hehe Love you mom. Anyhow, the windows were left open enough for a good bit of fresh air to come in without us getting cold. The days just went by mostly slow because some of those states are flat as a pancake and just goes and goes and goes...no offense to our friends in the mid-west but we're used to being surrounded by mountains...TALL 9,000-10,000'ones! Mom and dad only stopped for food and gas. one sleeping while one drives.
We're getting closer......Thanks for voting and see you tomorrow-Punkin HUGS and KISS

  mom is VERY careful with us birds
Hawks in the sky birds inside. Part 8....
Packing was going pretty good until mom seemed to hit a brick wall. I never seen anyone stop dead cause she couldn't think. Good thing we birds have our ways of getting loves....Anyhow, we still had "the girls" in fact they didn't go home until just a few days before we moved so us finches had those crazy birds flying all around. We got to laugh so much too...Sara, she's the yellow tiel, can fly real good but crash lands ALL the time. CRASH! into the curtain she's trying to land on...CRASH! on the floor. She's always been this way and there's nothing wrong with her, she's just not coordinated. The other girls were fine. They'd fly on mom for their loves when it was bed time.
Back to the move...well dad finished his working 2 weeks before we were to leave....mom was hoping for help but got none. Yep, no help at all. And then out of the blue Lisa and Page come back over and bring wood. Didn't take but about 3 hrs to put floor, sides and back on the trailer. Lisa was helping mom pack the kitchen and stuff and all of a sudden Lisa got a call to pick up a bird..a Grey. NO mom didn't even hint on keeping it because Lisa already got a person in mind. We all REALLY miss Lisa and Page. Mom emails all the time and they call but it's not the same.....
So now mom has this great trailer to pack. Some ladies were sent to help mom pack and stuff. Well, mom said she really needed and wanted the walls to be cleaned and gave a few other things needed and you know those ladies NEVER DID A THING! Mom said she needed help packing the trailer...nope of the 4 none helped. They said they needed her inside to tell them what to pack. You would think when someone tells you...this room, this cabinet and stuff you could get that packed right? Nope not a thing. So that REALLY got mom down. Don't remember what dad was doing but he had something he really had to do....OH YEAH, he took the car down to have the oil changed and a few things like that. Yep it was important things. He was miffed when the ladies spent the day playing with the birds instead of helping mom. Oh well, mom wasn't paying them for anything. And she got things done thanks to Lisa. That was an awful day.

Okay on that note... I will let you all know that Sophie is her old self today and was outside playing for a long time with dad. There were few sightings of hawk or crow and dad even took a few videos of how happy she was...mom will post one soon. We got to go outside today too and boy was it wonderful. lots and lots of sun and fresh air.
Thank you Everyone. I'm so happy you fly by. And Thanks for the votes too. --Punkin

  Hi P & B
Punkin here. It was so wonderful. We got to look outside a lot and make all sorts of noise. Maybe if the weather is good again...like it's supposed to be...mom will take us outside. Today they had to come in pretty fast because the hawk family..all 4 of them...were flying real low. They were just over the trees so mom and dad had to bring Sophie and the others in. Oatie says he's real scared of them flying THAT low.
Our Moving Experience....
Part 7...Let's just face it..there were boxes stacked everywhere and mom was shot. Plus the heat was awful for the summer. So I'm skipping forward to the building of the trailer.Lisa was extra good about watching over mom. After all, she was military. hehehe So one day she called and said that she and her hubby was on the way and what did they need to pick up. I can tell you mom sat down and cried right there. She didn't do that much at first but by the end she was down right exhausted, but that comes later. So They show up and they break out the sun shade and off dad and Page goes. They got the bottom fixed that day. Took a good 8 hrs to build just the frame! And we know it would've taken mom 2-3 days on her own. You should have seen it all...They were breaking open boxes and had noisy things, mom says they were tools, yeah okay, noisy tools. REAL scary. Everybird was screaming their danger calls. Mom and Lisa looked outside and were called out to help move the thing. It took 4 of them to flip the thing over. AND IT WAS RED! DANGER!! Mom and Lisa had a time calming everybird down when they got back in too. hehehe Mom and dad were so happy we asked them to stay but they had a couple of birds to pick up. Wouldn't take a dime either. That ended that day cause mom and dad couldn't hardly stand up but they were extra happy.
got a photo of the frame on my page.
Thanks again for voting for me.
