Hi! My name is Ollie

I am a Rainbow Lory from Ridgehaven South Australia, Intl.

Ollie Oi Oi, Sweetheart.

8 years old   M

Rainbow Lory

Australian Bush flowers and Broccoli, Apple & tiny bits of toast. yummy.

Ollie's very tall cage is in my office. Ollie loves to sit on his blue calcium stick as close to me as possible. He also love to hang out in his biscuit tin for his private time. Sometimes he is allowed out and he likes to sit on my hand, shoulder or head.

Being ignored. When Mum talks to someone else on the telephone.

My Mum talks to me a lot and we play whistling games. I like being tickled under my wing with a feather.

I like to lie on my back inside a round biscuit tin and juggle a toy with my feet whilst chatting quietly to myself. I love the sound of the echo in there! I like to practise my words in there too..

  Hi Ollie
Hi long time no see. Thats a American expression. haha. Well we have been going through our summer here and believe it or not fall is approaching soon. Its been one crazy summer with the weather. We had thunderstorms with wicked lightening more often then we normally have. We had a few bad storms roll through that knocked down alot of tree branches and trees over a month ago or longer. Our own backyard we lost 2 big branches from one storm and a few more from another storm weeks later. Then days ago we got hail a little bit bigger than marbals. I started looking at utube videos last night of hail and wow there was clips of it the size of tennis balls. Kind of funny but does damage. ANd we also got a horrible heat wave exactly a month ago where it got up to 100 degrees. Exactlly you go by celcius and we go by Farhenhiet. 100 degrees is HOT. (doest get any worse than that). I mean we had alot of very hot days but then the heat wave a few days in a row was worse. Other than that i have been enjoying the summer. I made video tapes of Feather you can go see. Just type in Feather or Feather and the lightening and see her latest videos under Sheri. Acutally last night i did a short video of a Hawk nearby and posted it so it will be up anyday. And days ago i did a video of morning doves and posted that too. So both of those video should be up on the videos anyday now. THen if you were to click onto Sheri that shows the rest of my videos. Oh one big thing i got myself a smart phone called LG phoenix about 3 weeks ago and i love the phone. Its cool and its fun to go to the weather and news. Of course its got a camera and MP3 player ect ect. So now i am extra cool i got a cool phone. haha.

  Hi! Ollie,

How have you been? It's Oz the Rose Breasted Cockatoo. You're so beautiful. So what's new Ollie? How was your weekend? Mine was pretty good. Mommy just gave me a shower and my cage (Avian Accent Cage - pc. of furniture really) is nice and clean so I'm a happy girl. It's raining cats and dogs here today. But I guess we needed it at least that's what the humans are saying. Okay, well you take care and please stop by sometime cause I miss you. Before I go I'm gonna vote for you. Bye now and I hope to see you soon.

  Hi Ollie! V4U!!!!
Great to hear from you! The baseball games were suspended for two weeks due to a death in the baseball family community (our friend and commissioner Mr. Tim Graham). We know he would want us to keep going, so we are getting our spirits back up to play. Just got our new profile portraits done. Our friend Cinny did them for us at the BC Art Studio. She is really talented! Check out her page at BC #204102. She has some really pretty artwork. And it is getting us in the mood to play again. Our first game is coming up in a week or so. I'll let you know how it goes. Weather here has been strange. It snowed the other day - very wierd for April in the Midwest. Everyone is in the dumps. We need some sunshine!!!! Mom is busy at work so we haven't a lot of time to play. I got a new cage though ... dad is dragging his feet putting it together. I'll take a picture and send it to you. You are such a beautifully feathered bird. Do you have a sweet personality? I don't ... I am a little stinker and only like mom. Everyone else I try to nip if they want to pet me. Have a great day! Hope your weather is good! Hugs, Sam

Hey buddy, how are you? So good to hear from you. No problem regarding baseball. We completely understand - and we support your decision. How is the weather in Australia by your house? I hope everything is OK. I heard there were some bad storms a while back. That is scary. Just wanted to say hi! Next year maybe you will have more time and be able to come out and play with us!!! We have fun! Take care and I'll see you soon my new friend! Hugs, Sam

  Hey Ollie
Yep, that was me that mentioned the Laughing Kookaburra. That's cool that you hear them! Does it really sound like laughing?

We're entering Spring now. Some people call it Autumn, but I prefer Fall heheeh. How cold does it get in Australia in the winter? It can get down to -10° F in the winter here, but usually that's only once or twice a year. The hottest in the summer can be up to 100° F but that's very rare, usually the hottest in the summer is 90-95° F.

That's funny that those boys had never seen a bird like you before! Was it your color, or the way you act? I'll bet that they liked you though :) Oops, time for me to get going! I'm sorry! Here's a vote...

See you later!

  Hey, Ollie!
Thanks for the visit! oh it's night time in Australia? It's mid-afternoon here in the states! What season are you in? We're in spring.

Mama just let me out and cleaned my cage. I had fun most of the time but got scared whenever she slid the bottom of my cage out or in. I'm okay though! Here's a vote,

See you later!

  Heya Ollie
We are all fine thank you. It's so nice to hear from you:)
Wow!!! Ice cream yes it's delish....... Cereal and milk too:)
I share the cage with Alex, the only bad habit I have is I must get whatever is being shared first:).... Sometimes mama says no to me and gives Alex first.:( I get angry and fight him.. He drops it and walk away... Then he won't eat all day... He's angry....
I know it's not fair, daddy softly speaks to me about that..
Shut up"" that's all we heard in that mean house.. With the old owners
They did alot of mean things to us... Read alex's profile.......
Alex one deals with mama, she is his sunshine and vice versa..
What nice veggies did you get from the garden? Did your mama plant any fruits or peppers?
Pruning the garden sounds like alot of work? Did you help? Hehehehe
Sorry to hear you can't be in the baseball team:( may be at a later time.
Take care

  Hi Ollie
Wow that must of been a shock to all of you to see this happen to his country while he was at your house. Not hearing from him is not the greatest news but maybe cellphone and regular phone towers are knocked down. His living on higher ground would be good. I watched some of those utube videos where people who live on higher ground where able to video tape the tsunami rolling in. I never realized how powerful a tsunami can be. You should see this one 6 minute long video on utube how the person is standing on a walkway and everything around him was washing away. Even a big house or something went floating past him. The sad thing is that the exchange student you had for two weeks is really not safe from the radiation because i heard that Japan is smaller than the state of California and thats pretty small. That would mean that the USA is probably 70 times the size of Japan. Like maybe 70 or 80 or 90 Japans would fit in the country of USA because Japan is so tiny. And your country is the size of the USA so you could fit many Japans in your country too. I happen to have a map of the USA hanging by my computer. Feather is fine. SOmebody told me about a website called so i went there and added stuff to Feathers picture on her homepage.

Thank you for voting! I’m almost at my goal, and I honestly didn’t think that I would make it this far so quickly! I’m 4 votes away as I type. Hooray! My good friends Pearl & Silver got BOTD :) I’m so glad. Oh by the way, please keep voting for Kootenai (HC 161648)! Thank you to those who left him a vote, this is his 3rd try for HOTM :( I think that he really deserves this!

Well, Mama and I learned that I think corn is DELICIOUS! I think that it was yesterday, Mama was searching the fridge for something she could give me as a treat when she let me out. She found some corn (home-grown!) and decided to give it a try. I LOVE IT!! It’s so sweet and yummy :) she’s happy to see that I like it, since we ran out of strawberries (my other favorite) and we have to wait until summer to get more quality strawberries. And how does she expect me to wait that long?? I’m glad I like corn, hehe!

• In a single year, the American robin can produce three successful broods.
• The Laughing Kookaburra gets its moniker from its manic laughter-like call. And its early dawn and dusk cackling chorus earned it the nickname “bushman’s clock”. The Laughing Kookaburra is also the largest of the kingfisher family, getting up to 18 inches long (beak to tail), with it’s beak growing up to 4 inches.

The peregrine falcon (Falco peregrinus) is believed to be able to spot a pigeon from a distance of more than 5 miles under ideal conditions.

WHOA!! That is REALLY good vision! Under ideal conditions, they can see more than 5 miles?? Sheesh! Too bad my vision isn’t that good hehe. I’d never heard of the Laughing Kookaburra (whew!) before finding bird facts. I wonder what it sounds like? I’ll bet you could find that out online.

Guess what?? My portrait is finished! But I can’t show you or tell you anything about it except that ... IT’S AWESOME! Hehehhe. I got it a few days ago, it is just amazing. Just wait until you see it! Friday. Whew. My run will be over on Friday! Weeird... OH yeah, and I wanted to remind you that my frother Royal #203755 is running for BOTD tomorrow! Please leave him a vote on the 31st. We’re hoping that if he wins BOTD, then he and I can have the castle to ourselves on my first day as BOTM! Anyway, here’s my vote for you ... Thank you again for helping me with my votes! OH yeah, and one more thing! You won’t have to miss my birdie facts too much!

  Hello Ollie
I'm so sorry, I'm a bad friend. Sorry I took so long to reply, mama & fister Princess were sick.
We are still trying to catch up with our blogs.
How are you feeling? I know you were yourself the last time we chat. I did say prayers for you, like I do for all my friends & parronts before we go to sleep.
I just love your colors, it's georgous!
I have another friend out too:) his name is Jivu.. Check out my frother Myron's page and you can get to Jivu if you wanna be friends. If not it's ok:)
How's your mama? A kiss for her:)

  Hi Ollie
I am flying by visiting some of the birdies i havnt seen in a while. Feather is doing fine. I got a new little short video up of her under a minute. I wish the video was longer but there will be more videos in the future. The background is my birds from Danbury mint. I have not bought any in a while. THey are expensive replicas. I have one bird that looks like Feather. In the video my Chicago Sears Tower shows up in the background. I bought that about 4 years ago for about $80 bucks or maybe it was over $100. Just wanted to share that because i didnt realize my stuff would show up in the background. I also have a replica of the city of Chicago a tiny little thing. Well we are slowly dipping into spring. But today was cold. We got a sprinkle of snow last night and thats probably it with the snow. We really dont see snow in April. I guess its still stinking hot over there. haha. Well we will get hot weather in a few months. It actually gets very humid over here during the summer.

Hooray! The chicks are here. That’s why I’m getting on a little bit later than usual! The post office called around 6:00am and told us that the chicks were there. We went to Agway (a farm store) and got some chick mash. We then went to the post office and picked up the chicks, who were in a box a peeping like crazy. They are now all settled in the chicken barn, but in a separate little crate. They’re all healthy, and you can see the pictures of them in my gallery!! They already have little feathers on the tips of their wings, and they only hatched yesterday. Feathers on chicks literally grow overnight. One day, no feathers, the next day, feathers!

Thank you so much for the vote & visit :) I’m almost at 2,300! And according to my Daddy Kiddo, I’ve actually already won BOTM, but I just need to wait until April 1st. But let’s try and get me up to at least 1,000 votes in one month, okay? I’m almost there. I had about 1,4050 when I started my run, and as I type I’m at 2,276. Daddy Kiddo says that I might make a new record. What do you think? Let’s try and make it to 1,200 in one month! I think that we can do it :)

WOW! Imagine not going back to land for five whole years. Wait, does that mean that they never stop flying?? How can that be? I actually typed up the correct term for the rooster fact myself, hehe.

I have a meeting with the Royal Archivist soon. We’re going to get a portrait done. I’m excited. We have to choose a crown (Royal and I chose one earlier but the Archivist has better ones) and think of a good place for me to pose. I think outside of the castle with flowers blooming would be nice. What do you think? Wow. Just think. I will probably be BOTM soon … in just over a week, I’ll be King for a month……. I’ve gotta get packing!!!!

How was your St. Patrick’s day? Mine was great! I didn’t make it to Big Baby’s party at the time when everybird would be arriving, but I had a good day anyway. Did you go to BB’s part? I bet it was a lot of fun! Thank you for leaving me a vote, and thank you for praying for my friends. ♥

Well, we learned that I think that strawberries are tasty! Mama let me out later in the day than she usually does yesterday, which was around 7:00pm. She didn’t think that I would be very active. We’ve run out of carrots, so she was having a hard time finding something to give me for a treat! She remembered that there are some strawberries in the fridge because she was making strawberry shortcake. So she grabbed a berry that hadn’t gotten any sugar on it or anything. She took it in the bathroom with me, and I was like, “What the heck is THIS??” because it’s red and I’ve never seen a red food before. So she ended up getting me to try it, and I couldn’t keep my little beak off from it! Of course, she didn’t give me the whole thing, but I do think that it was very yummy :)

Wow! I guess that Owl eggs look a lot like turtle eggs then! And that England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales don’t have a national bird?! What, are they crazy?? Some body should start a petition that they need a national bird! Maybe they should have it a super cute budgie with blue shoulders and a bright eyes :) oh wait, then it’d be me! Heheheehe!

That's so cool that you are at 1st place!! I'll try and give your picture 5 stars when I can.

I didn’t make it to BB’s party yesterday, but I’d like to invite to you the March Milonga, page #165848.. The Milonga is a really fun party that my Daddy Kiddo (7592) hosts every month. This month, we’ll have everything Irish. It’s going to be at 8:00pm, Eastern Time. If you want to see the whole invitation, then please go to the Photo Studio page, because I posted it there. It wouldn’t be any use to post it on my page, it would get washed away by all of my blogs before most of you could get to it!! Well, here’s your vote, and thank you so much again for all of your love & support. I hope that you have a wonderful day!

  Hi Ollie!!
Sorry that I have not been on. Mommy has been super busy. I can't remember if I told you before that we were going to bring a baby brother home soon? Well, we brought my little brother home today. His name is Rhett Butler and he is only 7 weeks old. Mommy says that he hatched on 1/27/11. Be sure to come by and look at his pictures. Mommy is not sure how to incorporate both our profiles. She created one for him and hopes that everyone will be able to click on his from mine. Any advise that you can offer will be appreciated.

I am not sure what to make of him yet. I am sure that I will get used to having him around eventually.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Take care,

Come visit me, Scarlett & Rhett Butler.

I didn’t get back to some of you, so you may not know about my friend Princess (193758). Princess is a little budgie, who is sick and her meds aren’t working. Please keep my wonderful friend Princess in your prayers! I don’t want to lose another friend.

That’s interesting about the Toucan’s beak, but I think I’ve heard it before. Have you? And I like the fact about the Hummingbirds’ nest. Spider webs! That’s a new one.

So, I’m really sorry about not getting back to you yesterday, and I just want to thank you SO much for the hatchday songs & presents. I really, really appreciate them. And thank you for the vote!! My friend Cookie #195216, who had left me #1,700 on the 7th, gave me vote #2,100 this morning!! Well here’s my vote for you. I hope that you have a SUPER ♣ St. Patrick’s Day ♣, and I’ll see you later!

Hoorah! It’s my 6th hatchday! Thank you sooo much for the vote and visit. I’m over half way to 2,100 now... will you leave that special vote?

I have a piece of sad news for you. As you probably already know, Huey (#60780), passed away yesterday (3/15) while he was having surgery. Please pray for his Mama and also for my friend Princess (#93758). Princess is sick and has been for quite some time now, her meds aren’t working. Please keep her and her parronts in your prayers, Princess is such a sweet bird! Since my run started, she comes by more than once a day just to visit. She is great!

• Parrots are the only birds that hold their food up to their beaks to eat.
• A flock of goldfinches is called a 'charm'

.·:*¨¨*:·. “Most Airborne Bird” .·:*¨¨*:·.
The sooty tern (Sterna fuscata) leaves its nesting grounds as a youngster and remains aloft for 3-10 years, settling on water from time to time. It returns to land to breed as an adult.

That’s interesting, that parrots (which includes budgies, parakeets, macaws, ‘tiels and I think a few more) are the only birds that hold their food up to their mouth. And that’s a cute flock name... a ‘Charm’! Also a bird staying airborne for up to TEN whole years?? THAT’s a long time!!

I’m so happy that it’s my hatchday. I’m finally SIX WHOLE YEARS OLD!! That’s a long time. Mama’s surprised to think that she’s had me almost that long. I don’t think that we have anything special planned for today, Mama said that I’ll have some extra time with her. I hope so! Too bad we just ran out of carrots the day before my birthday. They’re my favorite treat, too! Oh well. Here’s a vote, and thank you SO much for visiting me, with a hatchday wish and vote! All are greatly appreciated :)

  Hey, Ollie!
I used to have a guinea pig friend. We used to run around on the floor together playing. He ran me over a few times... but I had fun "chasing" him. I would climb into his cage and he would come in after me and knock me over, but it was sofly bedded with fresh hay so I was okay every time :) Guinea pigs are really cute and sweet animals, the one we had died a few years ago and I even used to mimic his whistles and squeaks. After he died, Mama would get confused because I would be making the whistles :D and when we still had him, both he and I were up in Ma's room and whenever say, a cat was bothering the guinea pig, he would make a high pitched squeal and then Mama would get that cat away. Well, sometimes I would make that squeal for no reason and get Mama all excited and worried! Hehehhee...
LOve, Spirit Cloude

I’m getting close to 1,800, so please let me know if you leave that vote #. Thank you so much for voting! ♥

Well, it’s Ash Wednesday. Are you going to do anything for it? We’re going to church. If you celebrate it, what are you going to do for Lent? I think that I will try not to... wait... I never do anything wrong! Hehe. I guess I don’t have to take anything away :)

Swifts, doves, falcons, and sandpipers can approach 200 mph.

The phoenix fowl, or Yokohama chicken (a strain of the red junglefowl) Gallus is bred in Japan for ornamental purposes. A rooster with a 34 ft. 9.5 in. Tail covert was reported in 1972.

Now, that one I’m a bit iffy about. A bird that can go 200 miles per hour??? That’s a crazy speed! What do you think? But the Yokohama chicken record is pretty cool, I think :) Mama says she almost got some Pheonix chickens, which are like Yokohama’s but different colored and a bit of a different body shape. If you wanna look up Yokohama chickens, or Pheonix or any other breed, a good website with great pictures is: (delete all spaces/dashes!)

Well, I hope that you have a wonderful Ash Wednesday! Here’s a vote for you. Thank you, again, for voting for me.

Thank you all for helping me reach 1,700 votes! Cookie #195216 left me the special vote. Thanks, Cookie!

Well it was raining yesterday but it’s sunny today. Oh and before I forget, if I end up blogging on Friday, some of you might not get a blog. Mama has some stuff to do in the afternoon, and then on Saturday if she does blog for me it will be later in the evening. Sorry about that!

Pigeons can reach speeds up to 100 mph.

WHOA, now THAT’s a fast bird! I think that maybe I can go something like 25 miles per hour, but that’s only measuring how fast I go when I’m flying around the bathroom, where I can go pretty fast but it’s a smaller space than pigeons have to fly around!

Thank you again for all of the votes :) You’re so nice to come by every day and stomp on that voter, even if it’s silent. I really do appreciate every one of those votes. Thanks! And now here’s my vote for you.

Thank you for voting! I’m about 10 away (as I type) from 1,700. Please let me know if you leave that vote! I’d love to add you to my BC Milestones.

It’s Monday and more rain for us. But it’s getting rid of the 45 inches of snow we had, so that’s kind of good, but I think I’ll miss looking out from my perch and at the nice snow. Mama says that she might miss it too. But it’s March, and that means spring is coming quickly. So, bye-bye snow! Well, maybe. The weather man said that we might get a bit of snow today, but I don’t think that will stay with how warm it is!

The world's only wingless bird is the kiwi of New Zealand.

The Gentoo Penguin found on the Antarctic Islands can swim 40 km per hour, and is the fastest known swimming bird in the world.

A wingless bird?!? Mama says that she knew that there was one, but I didn’t know! And it sounds like a Gentoo Penguin is pretty fast. As I look ahead, tomorrow’s fact should be pretty interesting :)

Here’s my vote for you. And once again, thank you so much for the votes. They are greatly appreciated! Everybird keeps saying that I’m “blowing the doors down” with all of the votes I’m getting. Am I really getting that many?! I don’t know about that hehe.

  Hi Ollie
Our snow is all melted with just a spec laying here and there. We did get a tiny amount of snow yesterday that melted quickly with just a spec here and there.Our temps are getting warmer. Still cold enough to wear a light coat or throw your coat on without needing a hat. One day it was so nice out i yanked my coat off while outside. Then the next day i wore a jacket and i was too cold to have just a jacket because it was a bit cold and snowing. But since are average temp is alot warmer alot of the wild birds are coming back to town. Normally alot of birds fly south for the winter or where ever they go. But i have started hearing birds i have not heard all winter. Today i saw a bunch of Robins in our back yard and counted about 10 and one was sitting in a tree. They normally are not here during winter months. They are flocking back because they know our temps are getting warm enough. Our first day of spring is 2 weeks away. We only have a couple more weeks of ever seeing any snow too because it is very very rare to see any snow in April. Like my b-day is the beginning of April and i dont believe i have ever seen snow on my b-day. When i started reading my blogs Feather escaped from her cage and flew onto my shoulder. Now she is stretching her wings on my shoulder. She is still happy and healthy running around all the time in her cage. Actually she struck me as extra excited the last 2 days and i bet its because the outside wild robin birds are back and she is exicted to hear all her old bird friends outside.

Come visit me, FEATHER.

THANK YOU to Marley #40575 for leaving me vote #1,600 yesterday (Fri.). And thank YOU for all of the votes that helped me get up to 1,600 votes so quickly! I’m having a lot of fun.

I’d like to remind you that March 14th is Maxi remembrance day. His page number is 9042, so on March 14th (even though it’s a little way away) I’d like you to go to his page and visit for a minute, okay? I’m sure that his Mama will really appreciate it, since it will be the year anniversary of his passing. Thank you so much!

.·:*¨¨*:·. Did you Know? .·:*¨¨*:·.
A bird's normal body temperature is usually 7-8 degrees hotter than a human's. Up to three-quarters of the air a bird breathes is used just for cooling down since they are unable to sweat.

.·:*¨¨*:·. “Smallest Bird of Prey” .·:*¨¨*:·.
The Pygmy parrots of Papua and nearby islands. Genus Micropsitta. There's six different sorts - Yellow-capped, Buff-faced, Finsch's, Geelvink, Meek's, Red-breasted - all around 3" long (8cm). Thought to eat lichens and mosses but not much is known about their lifestyles.

~ ☆ ~ ★ ~ ☆ ~ ★ ~ ☆ ~ ★ ~ ☆ ~ ★ ~ ☆ ~ ★ ~ ☆ ~
Wow that pygmy parrot sounds little. That’s smaller than me! A parrot, smaller than a little budgie? That’s small!

Well I’m sorry that this is short today. Not much is going on. Here’s a vote, and thank you, again, soooo much for leaving me votes and supporting me. You’re the best!
