  Much better winter
than last - don't you think ? Although, I do miss the time mom spent at home last year with the bad roads - one itty bitty storm since that Halloween freak storm -

Last night mom made baked ziti ! I love any kind of macaroni ! I'm hoping for leftovers tonight =) What have you guys been up to ?

  Flying by to wish you two
a Merry Christmas ! I've been trying really hard to be good cause I'm told Santabird only visits good birds - so far I've discovered I'm really good at shredding books and magazines, I'm good at flinging food onto walls, I can screech pretty well, and you should see some of the beaky holes I've put in dad's t-shirts ! So, I'm sure there'll be presents under the tree for me ! Have you guys been good ? love Cookie

  How wonderful to hear from you !
And so happy to hear that everyone is well . . . we worried about you after the hurricane ! Did you guys get hit with that freak Oct. snowstorm too ? We got that here ! In fact mom got caught coming home from the inlaws - about 20 miles north - it took her 9 hours ! And while sitting on the Rt. 9 parking lot - a tree fell on her car ! ! ! UGH

We're getting ready for Christmas too - the only thing I don't like is the tree is in the window I like to sit at and watch the outdoor birds at the feeders . . . I don't know who'll keep an eye on them now - and this weekend mom wants to start wrapping - now that's my favorite part of Christmas ! ! ! Well, except for the presents - and the treats - heeheehee - I guess I really like Christmas ! I'm trying really hard to be good so I get everything on my list . . .

love Cookie

Punkin here. I can't tell you how saddened we were to hear of the fire. You two must have been sooooooo scared. I know all of us would have been. Bet you never want to see fire ever again. We send our love to you and your parronts....yeah even the reptiles. Mom likes reptiles...me, I'm a finch and would just as soon not have them around.
I'm going for BOTM and am letting everybirdie know what flowers we CAN EAT. I'll try to remember to fly by your page with the info every day...may come in handy, ya never know. hehehe HUGS to you both.
Todays flowers are:

Gladiolus (Gladiolus spp) - Flowers (anthers removed) have a nondescript flavor (taste vaguely like lettuce) but make lovely receptacles for sweet or savory spreads or mousses. Toss individual petals in salads. It can also be cooked like a day lily.

Yucca Petals (Yucca species) - The white Yucca flower is crunchy with a mildly sweet taste (a hint of artichoke). in the spring, they can be used in salads and as a garnish.

  ZOO NEWS
We just wanted to let everyone know, we were the survivors of the fire on 4/25/11 in the Discovery Zoo. The reptile hut burned down as a result of electrical malfunction. We used to stay in it at night, so we were in there when it started. Tiffani and Richie were just starting to feed the animals at the lower barns when Richie saw the smoke, Tiffani told him it was the reptile building and they both ran to the zoo. Tiffani stoped at the house on the way to get a fire extinguisher and the zoo keys. Richie got there just in time to save us, the fire started on the opposite side of where we were. He punched open the glass on the front of the cage and we gratefully came to him and he grabbed us and threw us out. We flew to the chimpanzee cage and waited there. It was too late to save anyone else, by the time he turned around the flames were over his head and he had too get out of the way. Tiffani got there and opened the back gates so the fire trucks could get in. By the time they did there wasnt much left of the building. We lost a a snake, a couple of tortoises and some baby chickens and ducks. We are all very sad that this happened. The Zoo is welcoming donations of any kind to help us rebuild.

We ourselves wanted to thank Richie for saving our lifes and being a great friend!

Tiffani's father owns the Zoo. If you would like to see the newspaper article and a photo of us and the building please visit www.thedailymail.net "Exotic animals lost in fire"

  Hoppy Easter to you too !
Mom's making Easter bread and I'm trying very hard to be good so maybe she'll give me a raisin - not easy ! ! But I have a new roll of calculator paper to keep me busy and out of her way - and now that the weather is warmer (not nicer) my cage is by the window so I keep her abreast of all going on outside . . .

What an exciting time it must be ! ! ! Is the baby kangaroo cute ? Friendly ? We know that Ithaca place -dad's uncle lives there and we drive through on the way to our summer house in Skaneateles . . . it's pretty

Guess what happened to me ? Dad gave me a tissue box to play with, so I hopped right up and started chewing and shredding all around my feet - nobody told me I couldn't do that ! Then if falling in were not humiliating enough, mom LAUGHED - she said only cartoon characters (and quakers apparently) do such silly things - hurummmpphhh

Whew . . . mom is finally letting me catch up with my friends ! Dad hurt is back and me and mom have been very busy taking care of him . . .

The garden shop down the street had their first shipment of flowers today ! That means it will be warm soon . . . and mom can put her little sprouting peat pots outside (actually, they're mine - veges - yummy)

Mom gave me 2 paper towel rolls yesterday - she cut them into 3-4inch pieces - such fun - sometimes when I feel silly, I wear one on my head ! ! ! heeheehee

That sure was one tricky April Fool's Day joke she played ! Luckily, we were right on the rain/snow line so the roads were fine and it was all rain by lunch time . . .

It must be a real exciting time - what made the parronts decide not to let you roam ? Do you get into mischief - heeheehee - I know I've always got something under my wing . . . like the book of mom's I got a hold of - shred, rip, rip, shred - I was put in lock up for a while after that =(

  Morning friends !
Just a quick fly-by before lock up - mom and dad are going out to the market (they always bring home something yummy for me) Although it's cold, at least it's sunny - mom says she'll maybe start cleaning up the deck later . . .

Had a really good bath last night mmmmmmmmmm =) I have an old plastic cake carrier tub and I usually soak the entire kitchen (and mom and dad) when I bathe - I HATE showers - I like to do it myself - what about you guys ?
Then I go through my entire repertoire of words, phrases and songs . . .

How'd you like that weather yesterday ? YUCK - at least it didn't last, although mom did have a 2 hour delay before going to work - that's always good - she shared some of her oatmeal with me - yummmmmm

She made the mistake last night of trying to clean my gym before I went to bed - she won't do THAT again - heeheehee - lucky for her, I have a little beak (but it packs a powerful nip)

Have the new animals moved in yet ?

Can you believe this weather ? YIKES =(

There is a farmer's market right near our house, and I'm happy to say mom saw activity over the weekend ! ! That means they're getting ready to bring in the spring plants - The owner has a cockatoo that comes to work with him during the summer and they always send a treat home for me ! ! I can't wait (mom has tried gardening, but she just doesn't seem to have the knack - she's OK with flowers but not vege's)

So when you guys are hanging out with the kangaroos, who's the boss ? You two look like you have attitude, so my guess is one of you - yes ?

My mom sometimes calls me blabber beak ! I yell "step up" when I want out of my cage, and "wet, wet, wet" when I want a bath , "popcorn" when I want a treat and "commere" when I want head scritches . . .

  Hi guys ! !
Sneaky Mother Nature ! ! 3 days in a row of 60's and now back into the 40's and low 50's for the WHOLE next week - grrrrrr -

Did you two ever learn any of the other animals noises ? I ask because mom says I sometimes sound like Titan must - when I'm angry about something - I GROWL ! ! ! Mostly though, I voice my opinions with words - like "popcorn" when I want a treat, "wet, wet, wet," when I want a bath, "comere," means scritch my head and "gimme kiss" and "hi" - pretty obvious . . . I also know lots of other words, but those are the ones I know in context - what about you ?

We saw ROBINS yesterday ! ! ! Spring really is going to come to NY =) Good thing too - the wild frothers are getting very picky - whoever said "beggers can't be choosers" never visited us ! We ran out of seed for the feeders outdoors and didn't have time yet to run to Wild Birds Unlimited, so dad picked up a bag at the market - THEY TURNED THEIR LITTLE BEAKS DOWN AT IT - needless to say mom and dad had to make the trip (it's about a half hour away) and now they're all happy again !

I'm glad you two are "supervising" this spring - I often act as cheerleader when something needs doing here . . . and being loud is the best way (heehee)

Finally, sunshine and more moderate temperatures here ! The flooding is finally starting to recede - we live on high ground too so we stayed warm and dry - although after watching the pictures from Japan, who could worry about the water ! (Although, the long range forecast says we will have one more snow storm next Sun. or Mon.)

I learned out to untie knots this week ! Mom came home to wooden beads, plastic rings, cardboard donuts and bells ALL OVER - I pretty much dismantled any toy with a knot ! She says I have to learn how to put them back together now or I'll have nothing to play with ! !

It must be very busy about now up there - do you "help" get everything ready (heeheehee) ? A V4U

  Ohhhh, more rain
We're expecting another deluge down here, what about you ? I just hope it's not snow . . . The other day (and probably tomorrow too) there were roads closed, and even schools and businesses because of the flooding - personally, we're lucky to be on high ground -

So, you like to drop toys from the cage ? Me too ! One of the first things I learned was how to unscrew the hooks that held my toys ! Tell your parronts not to worry about you two being loud - especially on days like this - where oh where is the spring ?

I too, throw food cause I know mom will pull out the vacuum - one of my favorite noises ! I love to sing with it =)

Noah: Were you visiting us yesterday and rounding up our birdies two by two?? We had 4.09" of rain in 24 hours. Wow. And we still have over a foot of snow on the ground even after all that.
It sure would be nice to see the ground again.

  Hi friends !
Llamas are great (not so sure about an alligator . . .) We have pictures of some llamas lined up a snack bar, and in mom's armpit trying to get crackers - they are sooooo friendly !

What kind of pellets do you two eat ? I have zupreem, but I recently decided to eat only yellow - mom says food is too expensive to throw 3/4 of a bag away so I better get over it - doesn't she understand - a bird's gotta do what a bird's gotta do

We have rain today - we hope it will wash away the rest of the snow ! I hope it's not snow by you guys since you're about 100 miles north -

New toys huh ? You should thank that monkey (hey, where can I get one ?) Is he like a Curious George type ? Actually, I'm pretty destructive for a little guy, so my toys must be replaced pretty rapidly - my favorites are boxes (I can empty and chew up a tissue box in record time !) popsicle sticks, calculator paper, and empty paper towel rolls - sometimes I wear those on my head (heehee)

So some new additions ? Mom is keeping you guys in suspense ? How exciting ! ! ! Keep us updated . . .
