I was at the breeders store and Kallie was being fed formula and he was distributing it to all the other baby birds in the nursery and when he looked up and saw me through the glass window it was love at first sight. Tim the breeder let me hold him and he immediately went inside my coat to snuggle. That was it..

  Hi Kallie
I saw a note that said Squeaky is having tons of internet problems. Not a big surprise at all. All is well with them. RaneBeau sent me a blog and will tell his mom to get back on the BC. She has been very busy after her trip out of state. Right now, she is working on the August Milonga.
Well, mom tried that Google video chat ... no luck so far. Is there an address for it? Like Skype.com

  Hi Kallie
we normally like to blog around 11:30pm and let night we couldn't even get on bird channel. mom stayed up til 2:30am and still no bird channel. then this morning still no bird channel. then around noon today bird channel was back. i hope everything runs smoothly for the milonga tomorrow night since we won't be having many more of them

today was a beautiful bright sunny day. have never seen a day in Pittsburgh were there wasn't one cloud in the sky and a high of 78. its taken me a whole week to forgive mom for trimming my nails and i did enjoy my short time outside today. i can't take the sun though nd prefer being in the shade but there are still plenty of UV rays in the air for me to absorb.

love Cori

  Hey Kallie !
We're back in business ! Mom is an early morning person - even though it's summer and she doesn't have to get ready for school, she's still up around 5:00. She has gotten so used to having her coffee with all our friends, it was a tough morning :( Because you're a special friend she waits till things settle down at night so she can spend more time with you !

So she ran some errands and did some banking . . . now we're so happy to be with you again ! The parronts just got back from the Italian Festival for dinner for yet another night ! Dad calls it mom's KITCHEN VACATION ! har har har ! Mom has sausage and peppers (again !), Dad had a meatball wedge. Tonight they stayed for a while and visited. One of the new priests has a little dog (looks like TOTO) that follows him everywhere ! Mom caught up with a friend she hasn't seen in a couple months who used to be her classroom aide - they decided to go to breakfast one day next weekend :)

Tomorrow the parronts will be heading up to the g'parronts to work in the yard and do some of the indoor stuff too. G'ma still does most of it but needs help with the heavier work - meanwhile I'll be home all alone making as much of a mess as possible so they have something to do when they get home too ! LOL

Hope you had a great day - even though it was mom's busy errand day . . . give all in your family my love ! Cookie

  Hi Kallie
Happy Friday!!Im glad to be back on BC.I tried last night but wouldnt let me leave any blogs.Plus it was only showing me notes from like two days ago it was really weird.
My mom has been fighting a headache all day seems to get like this when the weather is changing.We have had a beautiful week then today has only been in the 60's with rain and gloom.Now as the day goes on its getting pretty humid and we are going to have a pretty warm and humid day tomorrow.
All that extra traffic has to be so annoying its frustrating when it has to take extra long to go somewhere because of all the extra people.I bet your family will be so happy when the fair is over.We had our county fair last week but thankfully its in a part of the city where my parronts have to go no where near.
Hope all is well on your end and I will squawk with you later.
P.S.I wonder if nana could maybe find a small radio at goodwill or some place like that?

and flock! Thanks so much for the good wishes for my hatchday, but especially for coming over to help me celebrate my special day. The cake and ice cream were luscious, weren't they? I got a new Jungle Talk Cotton Candy, new party whiskers, and my favorite movie popcorn nutriberries! Mom spoiled me all day.
Today mom cleaned in the RVS room, but didn't get it all done. She cleaned the fisher's big cage which takes up half the room, the bat's enclosure, the groundhog, and 8 of the raccoons, but had to leave 4 cages undone. Steph said they'd take care of them, though. It was a perfect pool day, too, so now mom is home to blog, and apparently in time to find BC up and running! Hope you are having another beautiful summer day today and getting lots of love and hugs. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Kallie !
So today was the day mom was staying home and NOT doing any work, just playing with you guys ? LOL ! Honestly though, I hope she found some time to relax and enjoy the day . . . dad should too ! His week is almost over -

All the heat and humidity is gone ! ! ! Once the clouds disappeared this morning and the sun came out, it was one of a kind ! NO humidity and mid to upper 70's ! ! ! Dad just went down to the church festival to bring home dinner - mom doesn't care what he brings for dinner (I'm betting calamari !) as long as he brings her a cannoli - har har har ! She just wants to hang with me tonight I guess ! Tomorrow they'll go later and stay - fireworks !

Anyway - you be good and give everybird my hugs and beaky kisses ! love Cookie

The fair traffic must be horrid to long time residents who have their lives there. It's rough to get caught in traffic any time, but knowing it's going to be for a week somehow makes it worse.
It's cooler here today than it has been for a couple of days, only going into the mid 70s today. That's good pool weather though. Mom will spend the afternoon reading by the pool, then do some grocery shopping which is really needed at this point. (She only had 7 things to cut up into the boy's and Maxine's bowls today.) Later we will celebrate my hatchday with songs, special treats, and maybe a new toy. I hope I get my favorite popcorn nutriberries. ♫Happy Hatchday to me! ♫ Come on over for some cake and nutriberries later! Hugs, Falco

I really don't know what is going on with Birdyville. I haven't heard from Squeaky in a while. She isn't on very much any more, so sad. I miss her. She and Kirby/RaneBeau were my frother Bailey's first friends on the BC.
I hope those people can fix our new site to make it more user friendly.
Looking forward to Skype.

HAPPY HUMPDAY

mom has heard that if you don't use something for at least a year then toss it out. problem is our dad refuses to go anywhere and mom would, according to this theory ,,toss out everything she owns since she never uses it. still there must be a happy middle.

mom spent all day cleaning our tiny front porch. it was full of spiderwebs, dead bugs and dirt. she found a small animal cache under the glider with a nest of leaves and tons of tiny little acorns.

Happy humpday!!Much cooler today feels great to be able to open the windows back up.Should stay like this now for a while upper 70's lovw 80's might get some storms on friday but who knows?
Mom's niece has met me a few other times before but this was the first time we were able to play together.
That was so nice of you to preen Dixie like that I feel bad his toes are so twisted up like that poor guy.

  Hi buddy !
Happy humpday Kallie ! It's mighty hot and humid here - can you say ICK ? The a/c has been on since about 3:00. Soon it will go off so mom and dad can head back to the Italian Festival for dinner . . . mom's thinking chicken parm - don't know what dad is thinking. I just want a birdie bag :)

Where is the summer going ? Mom can't believe we're heading into the last week of July ! That leaves only August . . . the parronts don't even know when we'll get away ! Lots of family stuff going on this year :(

Later tonight the thunderboomers are supposed to hit - severe thunderstorm watch till 10:00 tonight - mom says she and dad will be right home after getting supper. They'll have it wrapped and eat here just in case !

How's daddy's vacation going ? Did he finish the painting ? I hope his whole week isn't just getting work done ! He deserves a break . . . so does mama Rose - she's been working awful hard in the house too ! So give them both my love and tell them Cookie said to give it a rest !

love you guys ! Cookie

  Hi Kallie
I'm glad you finally got some hot weather. It hit 90 here yesterday, but mom said she'll never complain about hot weather after the winter we just had. She loves the heat! Mom made a recommendation to readers in the BC Library (Cookie's page), if anyone likes thrillers/mysteries.
Dinner last night was good, the groupon was for a local Japanese restaurant, but not traditional Japanese, one of those places that puts on a show of cooking on the hibachi. It's called Saga, and the chef came out and cooked in front of mom and her sis. They shared a sushi roll for appetizers, and her sister had a tempura banana for dessert. Mom was much too stuffed to have any dessert, though. Plus, a fried banana didn't sound appealing.
Mom has her mammogram and bone density appointment today. There is a women's imaging center that does both at the same site, so that's where she'll go. They are predicting rain today, but if the walk with the dogs this morning is any indication, it will be another bright sunny day, so pool time again!
I hope you are having a bright sunshiney day with lots of hugs. Hugs from me too, Falco

yeah, I don't think I will be on Birdyville daily like I am on the BC. I had asked Squeaky to find out if they can get all our stuff on our own pages. She said that they still have work to do on it so, I guess we'll have to wait and see.

oh your poor dad painting the trim outside in all the sun and heat. hope he gets it all finished before it starts raining again. by the time your mom clears out all the unwanted items in the house the rooms will start to look very large and empty. mom would also like to start getting rid of things. we don't have an attic or a cellar and mom has over 35 years of stuff jammed into all the closets. she likes everything because it all has meaning to her and thats why she has kept it but she doesn't need it. she needs someone to come and tell her what she should keep.

Sure was warm and humid here today got into the 90's and with the real feel it felt like 103.Thank goodness for it being cooler tomorrow should feel 25 degrees cooler.
My mom spent most of the day with me today . One of mom's nieces is in town and is staying with mom's parents house for a few days. She wanted to come by and see me so she and mom's parents came by for a bit and I played ball with her I think she gets a kick out of me. Then they left to have dinner mom ran a few errands then came back home to me.
Mom didn't hear anything about that train crash she will have to look for that story Washington County is about a hour east of here one of mom's brothers and his family live there.
I bet the sun does feel good on Dixie's toes that's great he loves to get out with your mom.
Hope you had a great day buddy have a good night.

  Day one of kitchen vacation
The parronts will be leaving in just a few minutes . . . mom is thinking sausage and peppers, don't know what dad is thinking about . . . mom is always thinking about sausage and pepper cause she doesn't cook it here - silly daddy doesn't like peppers ! ! Can you imagine such a thing ? I happen to love peppers - hotter the better ! Luckily one of mommy's good friend's husband grows the hot ones in his garden and always sends some for me :) YUM !

The humidity is creeping back in :( We can feel it in the air . . . then tomorrow afternoon come the thunderboomers - hopefully ending before festival dinner time ! Mom's been looking forward to chicken parm too ! ! Besides she DOES not cook this week !

How's daddy's vacation going ? Is he finding some time to relax or is he too busy working ? Lucky Candi - she must be in heaven having him home ! Give everyone in your house my hugs ! love Cookie

Is dad on vacation this week? That's good for all of you, because mom has been so busy cleaning out things. I'm glad you got out on the deck, too. It's good to see the sun isn't it?
It is a gorgeous day today! I think it's the best one of the week. Tomorrow we're supposed to get thunderstorms again. Usually by this time in July the grass is brown and dry, but everyone has green grass still. Mom has some grocery shopping to do, but it can wait. She needs to buy fresh fruits and veggies, but we have enough to tide us over for a few days. Today is definitely a pool day, and tonight mom and her sister will go to a Japanese restaurant for dinner. Mom bought a groupon a few weeks ago and wants to use it before it expires. Tonight will also be cage cleaning night, so we all have to be prepared to fix up our homes as soon as mom is done destroying them.
I hope you are having a bright and beautiful sunny day and getting lots of attention that you deserve. Hugs, Falco

I agree with you on Birdyville. I do think it's more like FB. I can't see how we could do a derby on that (or FB either). But, if that's all we have, I guess it's better than FB. I don't see why we can't have all our info on our own page. Then, maybe a main page with all our names and pics to click on so we can blog each other.

Things have really heated up here the humidity has moved in but at least there was a breeze even though it's a warm one . Tomorrow the weather people are saying that it could be the warmest day we have seen yet good thing it's my mom's day off.

In a short while the parronts will go pick up dad's car (brakes) and drop off mom's (Service Engine Soon light)- by tomorrow at this time both cars will hopefully be in good working order ! You're right - it never rains, it pours !

And tomorrow starts mom's kitchen vacation ! She was down at the church finishing up today - tomorrow she and the other three will put the finishing touches on - she's not working the sale. Just going to eat nightly and showing up the next morning to tidy up and consolidate . . .

Tomorrow the humidity is supposed to return - today was pretty nice so mom got laundry done and did a real thorough vacuuming - my feathers end up in places I never go ! ! Mom thinks I must sneak out when nobody's home ! har har har

It sounds like another busy day at your place, with everyone there for dinner again. Tell mom the laundry will be there when she's ready for it.
Just a quick note today to let you know we're thinking of you. Mom cleaned the skunks, foxes, groundhogs, and coyotes today, all outdoors, and very muggy, so she was happy to get to the pool. We need her tonight, though, so we're making her hurry up with our blogs. Hope you are having a wonderful summer day with lots of love coming your way. Hugs, Falco

i am sooo happy that you take such good care of that little old frother of yours! He certainly does not need that Candi pulling on his bad leggie! Another very busy weekend. Blue's former mom came down to visit. Mom finally got the nerve up to ask for his old cage. (the lady has no bird, etc and till has his play stand and cage.) Go figure. The cage is very large and we could sure use it for Josh and his anger management issues. She promised mom that she would start to take it apart. So Aunt jeanne was also visiting with Angel who performed his usual antics running about the table outside on the patio smoozing with dad and mom. He's a real keeper. Mom wants them to do a sleep over! that would be fun because we could all party and watch movies. I hope you all had a greyt weekend! Love and winghugs, carter

Your blog was eaten by a squawk a tiel!
Skype is easy to set up. Just remember to put your mom's name and city and state. That is the important thing. You do not need to put personal info on it.
As you can guess ... we are still having BC problems. The squawk page, the virus pop-up, the forever cycling, and not being able to "contact us"! Getting really tired of this. But so far that Birdville isn't to our liking either. if that stays as is ... no more derby.

  Hi Kallie
Been off bird channel for a few days because moms been having sever pain running down her left leg due to her back problems.moms wearing her back brace and its taking pressure off her leg so her leg doesn't hurt as much. mom looks like a dork with the back brace on.we thought this was interesting and want to share it with you.

Moths are among the most diverse and successful organisms on earth. In fact, scientists estimate there are more than 150,000 moth species worldwide! Move over butterflies, moths come in bright colors and dazzling patterns. Species can take a myriad of shapes and can be as small as a pinhead to as large as an adult’s hand.
here are five awesome (and often little-known) facts about these winged wonders.
1. Some moths don’t have mouths. For example, the beautiful Luna moth does not have a mouth — so cannot eat — and will live only for about one week, with the singular purpose of mating!
Luna moth
2. Moths are great impersonators. Many moths have evolved to imitate other animals as a way to deter would-be predators. The Polyphemus moth has bold eyespots to startle and confuse those looking for a moth snack. The hornet moth looks just like a hornet, but is completely harmless. The beautiful wood nymph, a moth that has evolved to look just like bird poop.
Wood nymph
3. Moths love a good microbrew. Interested in trying your hand at mothing? Nothing attracts these guys like beer. A tip from our scientists: Mix a paste of beer, brown sugar, and banana. Paint it on some trees, kick back and relax, then check back in the evening with your flashlight to see the multitude of moths you’re sure to attract.
Attracting moths... with beer!
4. Moths can turn bears into tigers. We’re all familiar with wooly bear caterpillars — but did you know this bear can turn into a tiger? Yep, the wooly bear emerges from his cocoon in the spring as a lovely Isabella tiger moth. Fun fact: Once a cocoon is spun, the caterpillar turns into a mushy soup during metamorphosis before emerging as a moth.
Moth metamorphosis
5. The death’s-head hawk moth has a serious claim to fame. He got his start in Bram Stoker’s Dracula, then went on to leading roles in both The Silence of the Lambs and The Mothman Prophecies. This famous moth gets its name from the scull-shaped pattern on the thorax, and has the unusual ability to emit loud squeaks when irritated.

Guess what ? MY Laura is coming again today - and this time she's bringing Landon to play too ! So I'm taking a little nap so I'm ready :)

We had a little rain overnight but it was over before daytime - mom only knows cause of the back deck being wet when she got up - wouldn't it be nice if all rain was like that ?

The SERVICE ENGINE SOON light came on in mom's car :( Now she'll have to call the Ford place first thing in the morning - and she just made the final payment ! ! ! Figures right ? No more car payment - can't save the money - have to spend it on repairs ! ! grrrrrr - only good thing is maybe it'll keep her home for a day !

I hope the sunshine came back to your house so you can go out on the deck today - give everyone my love and lots of hug ! Cookie

I'm so happy that dad got some help with those barricades. We were all worried that he'd have to do all that hard lifting by himself. I bet if you're good and stay in the bird room while mom is cooking you won't lose your primary feathers.
Yesterday at the birthday party it rained all afternoon. They have a large garage though, and set up picnic tables indoors for everyone. The children played in the rain, of course. They found a cute little brown toad and showed it to everyone. Most of the women were grossed out. Mom thinks they were surprised when she picked it up after it hopped off Ryan's hand. She was a science teacher, though, so she has handled lots of animals. She made sure they put it back where they found it, too.
Mom's niece's husband took mom's sister's old bed and made a bench from it. It's an antique bed, about 100 years old, but was really starting to show its age, so mom's sis bought a new one and gave the old one to Rich. He did a great job! The headboard is the back of the bench, the footboard is the sides (armrests), and the sideboards are the front. What a clever reuse of something old.
Today is either laundry, pool, or both, as well as our cage cleanings. Hope you are having a good day with sunshine and love. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Kallie
Just let us know when your are on Skype. Mom can call you by finding your mom's name and city and state. It's easier the first time to do that ... remember video calls only. Do NOT give them your phone numbers.
My dad gets up at 5am too. Just on Monday, Wednesday, Fridays. Mom and I sleep in ... zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Hugs
Chyna
PS the BC is driving us nuts!!!

Come visit me, Chyna & Scoober at Beach Party & Bailey ♥ RIP.

  Hi Kallie
Sounds like your mom had a busy day yesterday I hope she's able to stay home all weekend like she had planned.
Well mom's vacation is over and she was back to work today she always dreads going back that first day but once she gets there it's not so Bad . She always hates leaving me and misses me so much but I do just fine.
Had a pretty pleasant day weather wise warm but not over bearing. Now after tomorrow is when the really warm and humid weather moves in but luckily it will only last two days or so.
Happy weekend I hope it's off to a good start. Have a good night.

  Hi Kallie !
It was cloudy most of the day but now the sun is shining ! Mom and dad went to the state park earlier to walk there for a change of scenery - tomorrow they'll head back to the river where they usually walk.

They also did a bit of grocery shopping - no fresh sugar snap peas ! But they did come home with cherries :) I guess I can't have it all - even though I believe I deserve it ! LOL

You know how in cartoons, the characters chew on the branch they're sitting on and then end up falling ? Guess what I'm doing right now ? Yep ! And I've chewed through a few ladders so dad is keeping an eye on me !

That's all the excitement in my house today ! What about yours ? Give everyone my love dear friend - Cookie

  Good Afternoon Kallie
Sorry it took so long for mom to get back to you. It's very hard for her to get on here and see my pics. I am fine here at the Rainbow Bridge many other birds welcomed me and showed me the way. I'm always looking down to see mom and make sure she ok. I know she knows I m with her in spirit I have little ways of letting her know I'm with her. The other day she found one Of my green feathers in the toy box and sat and cried asked why. It was just my time. Mom wants to thank all of you for the prayers and thoughts at this difficult time. Leaving you a vote BBF Waddles at the Rainbow Bridge .. PS YOU CAN BLOG MY FIBLING RIO He a little me a mommy boy bossy and loves to eat ;)

Come visit me, RIO, MOCHA & LATTE.

  Hi Kallie
That's not good, mom getting up at 4AM. Did dad find any help? I am glad to hear you suffered no ill effects from eating that raw chicken. That might have been dangerous.
It's raining here, pretty hard, but it's supposed to end by midday. Mom is going to another birthday for yet another grand nephew today. He is getting to be a big boy now, 8 years old. She thinks she'll give him cash, as it is hard to buy for kids who have a lot of stuff. The party is this afternoon, so no pool today. That's okay, though, we don't care, we'll still get mom when she gets home, no matter where she is. I hope you are having a fun day with lots of scritches and sunshine. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Kallie !
Another perfect day here today ! Mom did have to go out to pick up a gift card for daddy's sister's birthday this weekend and to get a new battery for her watch. Did you know that it's a watch daddy bought for her a few birthdays ago and I'M ON IT ! Yep, the face is ME !

Mom also did a little more work over at church getting ready for the Italian Festival - hopefully the weather will stay just like it is now !

Tomorrow is my lockdown day :( I know mom has plans to clean my cage first though. That's the one chore she can't do whenever . . . has to be when daddy is home. See he distracts me with playtime so she can get it done. Otherwise, I try to supervise and direct and for some reason she says that I just get in her way - well, it's MY cage ! !

Give everyone in your house my love ! Hugs and kisses - Cookie

  Hi Kallie
I don't think it's a good idea to eat raw chicken, sweetie! Mom offered me the chicken and broccoli from the General Tso's but I just ate the plain rice. She thinks that's okay though, because I'm such a finicky eater.
Last night mom did an event at a local park with Irwin the porcupine. It was a lot of fun! The kids were going on a night hike in the park after the program, so they had to make it last until dark. She also told the education director she is not interested in that job she interviewed for last week, give it to the young woman who is still in the running for it. Mom told her she's still glad to help out, she just doesn't want a job.
Today mom cleaned after 11 skunks, 2 ground hogs, all 3 education hawks, 5 screech owls, and 3 fledgling red tailed hawks. It was a busy morning. She also found out that Bree can stay here with us when mom goes to Parrot Palooza in the fall! She was all excited to know that we'll be well cared for and she won't have to board us.
Hope you are having a good day today and getting some warm weather, sunshine, and hugs. Here's one from me, too. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Kallie
Good grief, frother! ya could have waited until the chickie was cooked! You must have been one hungry connie! Birdsonally, and don't tell mom..I find it heroic and swashbuckling! Mom went absolutely nuts with a deep clean yesterday! She pulled my condo (I had to sit in the crate, very undignified because I couldn't sit quietly with dad and the dog--I mean what is a girl to do? One of my frothers says BBBBRRAACK! And I ahve to answer him back) My condo, teal'c's and Charlies were all pulled for a powerwash and mom was doing ceiling to floor something she reserves for the weekend but that's mom. As obsessive compulsive as a conure! She finally got finished about 7:0pm...dad went ahead and at a hamburger without her and she had a hot dog with japaleno peppers. (another hot conure thingy) My condo really needed the cleaning because the late husbird was not too neat. So all is good. You are a greyt frother preening Dixie. He needs that eggstra TLC. Now stay outta that uncookied chickie, bad boy! love and winghugs, Carter
