Where: Jerry's page

When: this party will last for four days, come whenever you have time!!! Aug. 9 - Aug. 13!!!!!!! yeah!

Bring: any food representing birdie awesomeness and friendship, and of course, The Beach!! also bring sunscreen! The "pool" is open through the entire party. You are allowed to bring a friend!

Notes-- there will be a water fight all day on the 10th. water guns will be provided. you don't have to stay the whole party; thats why the party is longer. there will also be ice cream and popsicles. since Jerry does not live on a beach there's just gonna be umbrellas, towels and pinatas. and of course sticks to beat it until the treats come out!!! the kings and queens are welcome!!

Jerry and the FLOCK!

  HI Nico
Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. Mum and Dad have two apartments and a house and they are selling the house and moving all of their things into either of the appartments or their garage. its a long story, but they have been busy so that doesnt leave very much puter time for us birdies. I have lived here with mum since Sept. and I am still a little afraid of my harness. I used to bite Mum when she put it on and I no longer do that but I still am not a big harness fan. But let me tell you that once its on I do enjoy going outside.This is how Mum got me used to putting the harness on me. First she would let me sit on her lap along with the harness. She did that for about a week or so and then she would start touching me with the thing. Of course I didnt like that and tried to bite it, but after a few days it seemed like a game so I got used to that. This harness is my aviator harness, Mum still hasnt got me into a flight suit yet. We all have several types of harnesses and Mum thinks the aviator is the best but for some birds the feather tether can be easier to put on when you are first starting out. Anyway, One day Mum was touching me with the harness thing and all of a sudden it slipped over my neck, and Mum was stroking my wingers. Next thing I knew,i was hooked. I tried to jump off Mums lap and run and found out that Mum could catch me just by holding on to the end of the harness thingy. I was freaking out because I couldnt get away from it, so Mum picked me up and just let me sit on her lap awhile. She tried giving me treats because that worked with my African Grey sister, but I wasnt interested in eating when I had this thing attatched to me. Every time I would try and chew at it, Mum would distract me and start giving me scritches so I wouldnt destroy the harness. Finally I just sort of forgot about it being on, and the next thing I knew Mum had slipped it over my head and I was free again. Then she gave me a almond and I finallly decided to eat the yummy thing. Mum and I played this game for a few days and then one day when I had the thingy on Mum had me on her arm and took me outside on the balcony. i had never been outside without my cage before so I tried to fly off Mums arm but she had ahold of the harness thingy and it pulled me back so I couldnt fly away. It was scary at first being outside, but now I love it. My Cockatoo brother Simon and Macaw brother Mac both have flight leads that can be attatched to their harnesses so they can fly as long as their are no hawks around, but Mum says that I am still a little to nervous for that. It really does take awhile to get used to the harness things, just tell your Mum not to give up. Even though I like going outside I still try and chew my harness, so always watch out for that. I am sure after awhile you will learn to associate the thingy with going outside like I did. Now everytime I see it I know that I am going out for awhile and It is nice to be outside without a cage. Good l

Punkin here. Did you hear that I have a quest to be BOTM! I sure can use all the votes I can get. Would your flock support me?
I'm also sharing with everybird some flowers we CAN EAT!
Today's is:

Bee Balm (Monarda didyma) - Also called Wild Bergamot, Wild Oswego Tea, Horsemint, Monarda. Wild bee balm tastes like oregano and mint. The taste of bee balm is reminiscent of citrus with soft mingling of lemon and orange. The red flowers have a minty flavor. Any place you use oregano, you can use bee balm blossoms. The leaves and flower petals can also be used in both fruit and regular salads. The leaves taste like the main ingredient in Earl Gray Tea and can be used as a substitute.

Phlox, Perrennial Phlox (Phlox paniculata) - It is the perennial phlox, NOT the annual, that is edible. It is the high-growing (taller) and not the low-growing (creeping) phlox that grows from 3 to 4 feet tall. Slightly spicy taste. Great in fruit salads. The flowers vary from a Reddish purple to pink, some white.

  HI Nico
You are a very handsome birdie. Mum loves Quakers but they are illegal here in Pa. That doesnt stop some people from haveing them, but if you have a Quaker in Pa, you have to keep it a secret and not even put his pic up on BC.Mum didnt name me ZaZu, but she likes the name. My first people named me Jill until they found out I was a boy and then they changed my name to Gill. The lady that rescued me named me ZaZu because she was giving me a new start and wanted to give me a new name to go along with it. Once Mum was telling her friend that my name used to be Jill and I heard her say the name. I started shaking and snapped at Mum when she tried to pick me up.Mum doesnt say the J name anymore around me because apparently it brings back bad memories.Thanks for stopping by and here is a vote for you. Hope to talk to you again sometime, ZaZu

  Hey, It'sNico
I just learned a new trick! I can fly off Becky's hand, fly around the room a little bit, and land back on her hand. This is a huge step for me.
I'm trying to learn to fly off a perch and onto her hand when cued now. Any suggestions?

Come visit me, Nico.

You are such a cutie! I also enjoy flapping and flying at my mom. She believes that wearing hats will keep me from landing on her head, but it doesn't keep me from trying.

You are very cute and sassy. Here is a vote for you. Quakers are worth waiting for. We are small, intelligent animals. Mom likes to say that we are a big parrot in a little bird package. I have that knack of going poo poo in places that I shouldn't either. But then, that's what you get when you own a bird. What is your noise level? I'm quiet. I whisper and I'm old enough to be stubborn that I won't do those whistles that Mom wants to hear. Hee hee, I crack myself up. Fly by for a visit. Your new friends, Jewels and Boo Boo

This must be your 8th vote. Tell ?Becky that some things are just plain SCARY! We do NOT like the step ladder mom uses in the kitchen--we can see it! And the vacuum is especially scary. Long handled things are not nice, nor are the large boxes that get carried through the living room. Sometimes mom helps by telling us "MINE! You cannot play with it!" This helps a LITTLE.

Congrats on the loving home. You're a cutie. When my owner's son does homework, I like to shut the light off on him. He gets so mad which I think is really funny. Eventually he puts me on his shoulder. Works like a charm. I gave you a vote. Love, Sweetpea

You are a cutie, but most of us Quakers are. I just love wing whipping my momma's head when I fly by. She doesn't seem to mind much either. I like paper. I chew it into little spitballs when I can. Voting for you. Photon
