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.. Awards

  Oh Kallie !
It was such a busy morning that mom didn't get done what she wanted to this weekend since it was so busy . . . so mom came home from school today and started to tear her bedroom apart ! Get those t-shirts and shorts put away and the fall clothes out . . . all the bedding is in the wash now - why she even changed out the bedskirt !

She's writing a couple notes for me while the roast chicken is in the oven finishing up - then she'll go finish the bedroom. She even has a bag for the goodwill bin ! Looks like daddy will have to walk alone tonight or not at all ! The weather is perfect for it - it reached the high 60's today and the sun is shining brightly :) There may be a few sprinkles tomorrow morning, but the rest of the week is supposed to be like today :)

Hope mama Rose had a good day too ! Give my love to everyone in your house ! I love you guys :) Cookie

  Hi Kallie
You know it's a big no no to bite brother like that! Wow, you left welts? That's pretty impressive to me, heehee. Maybe I can leave some on Bree today when she comes for our nails...Let me plan on how to do that. Mom probably won't let me, though.
Today Bree is coming for our birdicures. This morning mom cleaned the outdoor RVS pens for the first time in awhile. There are 2 adult coyotes out there in separate pens as well as 22 raccoons! Good thing the raccoons are social and don't mind sharing quarters, because the center doesn't have 22 cages out there! They can be housed in a few large cages, but those are real bears to clean, so it took mom over 2 hours for all the outdoor areas today. Still, it was nice to be out in the sun, even if it was cooler than we like.
I don't think we'll get out today, because it's not very warm again. In fact, it looks like it's gonna be cool all week long. I hope you are having better weather, getting some warm sunshine and especially getting lots of cuddles. Hugs, Falco

we were so happy to see that the little bunny is back sitting in our yard. we were so afraid something had happened to him because he has been gone for about a month. he is now sporting a long haired winter coat. he needs it because it is dropping into the 40s now at night. of course in a month that will seem warm and will be our average day temps.

No problem at all things happen like that sometimes and yes BC has been a big pain lately.
Sure sounds like your parronts were both very busy hauling all that stuff around makes you just exhausted by the time you get through.
When it was so cold like that the other day my mom wanted some hot chocolate or tea so bad it was just a bone chilling cold where you couldnt warm up.Luckily its slowly warming up here and should be in the 70's in a few days.I have faith I will still be able to get some stroller rides in we normally have some pretty nice warm fall days here.
I didnt end up in lock up the other night when I bit my mom only because it was dinner time.Let me tell you she was mad enough to throw me in my cage and cover me for the rest of the night.She still gave me my corn bread she was making but was very mad at me but told me she was sorry later on shes such a softy.
HOpe your having a great weekend buddy and getting some warmer weather too.Have a good evening.

  A little chilly
but otherwise a really pretty day here ! Unfortunately, it does look as if days on the patio are numbered - it was only 45 when we woke up this morning and we reached a high of 68 - the sun is so shiny :)

Mom and dad did go to the g'parronts this morning. Daddy thinks it's the last time the lawn will need to be mowed this year. And like they promised, they didn't stay for supper. They came home and we're having leftover sketties - well, the sketties are fresh the sauce is left over . . .

Back to school tomorrow :( And this week is back to school night so it'll be just me and daddy on Thursday night - mom won't be home till after my bedtime. But she'll fix it (daddy is not a good tucker-inner) and give me kisses . . .

How was your Sunday ? Hope it was fun and you got lots of attention ! Did the parronts stay home with you guys ? Give them and nana my hugs - and wing slaps for the fiblings :) love Cookie

  Hi Kallie
I hope both mom and dad are home relaxing today and getting over all that work they did, carrying stuff down the stairs, cleaning rugs, putting away the AC units, etc. Mom got tired just reading it, heehee.
Today mom was up super early to feed us and the dogs, then get to an event on time. She thought she would have time to walk the furballs, but she didn't, so she's going to walk them when we are done with our blogs. The event was called Wild Rumpus, and there were 2 obstacle courses, one for adults that was 5km, and one for kids that was considerably shorter, as it was all in a field with a hill on it. There weren't as many people as mom thought there would be, but it was not well advertised and was competing with at least 2 other local events. It was damp and cool out, but mom was mostly dressed for the weather. She refused to wear real shoes, though, so her feet got cold in her sandals. Twitch the squirrel was pretty cute, though. He ate a couple of Brazil nuts which mom gave him as a challenge. She thought it would take him awhile to get through the shell into the nut, but he surprised her with his quickness.
I hope you are having a good day today, staying warm and getting cuddles. Hugs, Falco

  Hey buddy !
Well the company just left - it was a pretty good day. It started just overcast and cloudy so mom and dad took them to the park where they go to walk . . . they got halfway and guess what ? It started POURING ! ! har har har - they all had to run back to the car ! That was good for me - everyone in the house keeping me company ! And I put on a good show - songs, and chatter and my charming personality ! Now guess what the best part was ? SKETTIES for dinner ! ! !

Hopefully the rain will stop and the sun will return for tomorrow - according to the weather guessers, it's supposed to ! Mom promised that even though they'll go to the g'parronts tomorrow, they won't stay for dinner, only lunch, and then come home to me ! !

What did you do today ? I hope mom and dad stayed home so you got some playing and flying time ! Pretty soon pumpkin time will be here - then you can jump in a pie ! ! Till then give everybirdie my love and beaky kisses :) Cookie

So why was you lock I. Your room don't you and your fister get along? Mom decided not to get they baby Love bird her friend took it instead along with the Lutino tiel to. Mom said she was happy her friend took them.

How are you this Weekend. We doing good. Now we are watching Football game with mom and brothers. Lucy my blue Quaker fister keeps yelling go go go touch down then laughs when older brother yells at the TV. I think they both funny they must think the players can hear them yelling. I knew they can't but I bet the neighbors hear them tehe. Mom cleaned our cages today again . She does it every weekend they get a good washing plus she changes our papers and wipes them down daily. It's not like we are messy or anything tehe. Mom says we have a bird fair coming soon here and she going . So she been making a list of what we need and going to
Do Christmas shopping for us , friends and relatives birds. She said that way ours is done . Looks like mom is going to be working long hours the next few months she said probably until the Holidays are over then her hours will be back to normals. Well mom. Making nachos.

  Hi Kallie
Sounds like mom and Nana are terrific cooks, no matter where they are. Mom just put in her 2 hours yesterday, there aren't nearly as many animals there as there were all summer long.
Mom walked the dogs in the rain today, but the showers are supposed to end soon. We'll see, the weather guessers are usually wrong. Mom had to pull out capris and shirts with sleeves for today. It's pretty cool out, high 50s, and not expected to do much better as the day goes on. Mom has public tours today in dinosaur hall, and she's hoping to cut her tour time to a real mini tour today, between 35 and 40 minutes. We'll see...
Tomorrow mom will be working the Wild Rumpus event for the wildlife center. She will be taking care of Twitch the squirrel. He won't be the only one there, though. There will be at least 4 animals and their handlers throughout the obstacle course. This is the first time they've done this, so mom doesn't know quite what to expect, except for 5 hours outdoors and minding Twitch.
We'll let you know tomorrow afternoon what happened.
By the way, Twitch is the perfect example of why people shouldn't keep wildlife in their homes. He came to us after being kept as a 'pet' in a small cage for over a year. He was really fat, his tail is twisted irreparably, and he has metabolic bone disease from not being fed the proper diet growing up. He's called Twitch because of his seizures, as well. The poor boy is destined to be an education animal for as long as he lives, instead of being a healthy outdoor squirrel.
Hope you are having better weather than we are, more sun, more heat... And I hope you will get lots of cuddles today, too. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Kallie
we didn't get much of a storm the other day but temps has certainly dropped. today was no higher than 62. i know we will get some warm days here and there but hate the thought of cold weather coming.

since dad won't go anywhere he sent mom to the Olive Garden on wednesday night to bring home dinner. she got braised beef tips for both of them and lots of salad. after bringing it home and eating it mom and dad will now call the restaurant the Vomit Garden. they became so sick mom actually thought she was going to die. she spent the whole day yesterday in bed. today they are both fine.

  Hooray for Friday !
Wow ! Look at all those turkeys ! There are a few that must live on the school grounds - haven't seen them yet but the past few years they've been outside mom's classroom window ! I think they wanted to learn long division !

It's finally Friday ! Mom did stop at the grocery store on her way home - she picked up some green beans that looked really good ! I got to have one with my supper :) They're probably the end of the really fresh from the garden green beans this year . . . now I'm unraveling a nice big piece of rope ! When I have enough I try to put it in the door of my cage so it can't be closed ! har har har ! I won't have to go to bed ! I'll be able to sleep on my gym :)

Did mama Rose get all her errands done today ? It was a perfect day to do them if it was anything like it is here ! I sure do hope poppa Rich can get the car fixed and mama Rose can find a fid sitter so they can come to Parrot Palooza !

Love you lots ! Give everyone my love - Cookie

  Hi Kallie
I love the turkey pics! They are such neat birds. We got a temporary reprieve on the talons, Bree had to go to a wedding today and the center was quite busy, so she had to stay there a little longer than she had planned.
Mom went to the center today and got there just in time to see the USDA inspector arrive. They pop in periodically to check on the animals and the cleanliness of the building. Guess what he found wrong? A cobweb in the upper corner of the possum cage and some thistle seed(finch food) spilled on a storage can lid in the kitchen! Talk about picky! Anyway the center passed with flying colors, he even complimented us on how well the animals looked.
Mom cleaned the RVS room again today, then went on to the the birds, cleaning the raptor aviaries, the small flight aviary, the main aviary, and the screech owl's enclosure in the other building. It was a very busy day, but mom feels she got a lot done.
I think she plans to read today, using her new glasses. It will be a good day for that, since it's much cooler today than it has been for awhile, only in the low 60s. I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of cuddles. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Kallie !
Well, not only did the rain hold off till after recess - it's now after dinner and the sun is STILL shining ! It was pretty muggy today so when mom got home I started squawking "wet, wet, wet" for my bath tub ! It felt so good having a good splash :) Then while mom fixed dinner, I went through my repertoire of words, phrases and songs for her . . .

Tomorrow is Friday and mom and dad have a busy weekend so mom is going to do the grocery shopping on her way home - company coming on Saturday and off to the g'parronts on Sunday. Come next week mom'll be wiped out ! She wishes she had mama Rose's energy - she's always running around ! Doesn't she ever just want to stop and do NOTHING ?

So how was your day ? Did you behave ? You know if you're a good boy, you'll get more privileges ! Give all of your family my love ! cookie

Today mom had her final post op appointment with the eye doctor. She got a prescription for new glasses, and went straight to LensCrafters with it. Her new glasses were ready in about an hour, so she and her sister went to lunch, then went back to pick up the glasses. Then they went shopping for shoes, and stopped and looked at some clothes, too. So now they are back, and mom is finally getting to our blogs. Bree is coming to do birdicures either today or tomorrow, too. We are all ready to have our talons done, or at least mom is. She doesn't seem to appreciate the stabbing of her hand and arm that we are all willing to provide.
I hope you are having a fantastic day and getting lots of love and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

That's great your mom made it through Zumba despite her sore toe.
Boy all those turkeys sound like something my mom would have loved to see that I will keep my eyes posted for that pic if your mom can get it posted.
Sound's like another full day of errands to be ran.
We hardly got any of that rain that was called for so at least my mom had no trouble getting to work.
It was still so humid here today but in the afternoon it was like someone flipped a switch. The wind picked up the humidity left and man did it cool down in the 40's now.
Don't blame your parronts wanting to store that a/c unit upstairs that's to much to be hauling around.Best to be safe so no one gets hurt.
I got into trouble tonight. My mom was in the kitchen making dinner and I came walking in to chew on the cabinets.Well she told me no and had me step up right away which I did but then I pinched the heck out of her arm and broke the skin.Let's just say she was none to happy with me.

I hope you were a good boy today ! Did mom go to zumbaa ? Pretty good day here ! It was chilly this morning but warmed up really nice - mom didn't even want to pick the kids up from the playing field - she wanted to let them keep on playing ! But they head to the computer lab on Wednesday afternoons and she didn't want them to miss that !

Tomorrow is her day for recess - hopefully it'll be just as nice. The weather guessers don't think so - they think it's supposed to storm . . . we'll see.

We're waiting for the FedEx guy to show up - I know it's a hatchday present for me, but I'm trying to figure out what it is. Mom keeps spelling things out for daddy - why didn't I ever learn to read ? Now I just have to wait :( sigh . . .

They told the staff that the snake swallowed the ceramic egg out of a hen's nest. Apparently they put one in there to make the hen lay, but we've never heard of that. Of course, we are not farmers, so it could be true. One of the docents at the museum was telling mom those eggs used to be made of glass! Her mother collected them.
Mom is a lowly volunteer there, doesn't do all that much. There is a very dedicated and knowledgeable staff up there who know how to treat all kinds of animals. Mom is just a cleaner, feeder, whatever they need. She couldn't begin to diagnose or treat the animals! She has administered shots or oral meds at times, but she's more comfortable doing the cleaning and feeding, and of course, fostering when needed. She also is okay with the reception and quality care kitchen work.
I hope you are having a fun day today and getting lots of love and attention from mom. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Kallie
What happens when weeds and insects evolve into superweeds and superbugs? And refuse to die when doused with Monsanto’s toxic poisons?Enter Monsanto’s dump “More On” Strategy. More herbicides. More insecticides. Each one more toxic than the next.

Consumers hold the key to ending Monsanto’s “Moron Strategy.”
We do it by forcing states to pass mandatory GMO labeling laws. Which in turn will force Big Food to replace GMO ingredients with non-GMO alternatives.

It isn’t just Monsanto that’s escalating the “Moron Strategy.”
Dow’s new GMO corn and soy varieties are engineered to withstand massive amounts of a new herbicide concocted from a combination of glyphosate, the key ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup, and 2,4-D, one of the chemicals used in the deadly Vietnam-era “Agent Orange” herbicide.

The EPA has already approved the new “Deadly Duo” herbicide. And the USDA—over the objections of more than 50 members of Congress and hundreds of thousands of citizens—is expected any day now to approve the crops it will be sprayed on.

Why approve this new “Deadly Duo?” Because the millions of pounds of glyphosate and 2,4-D herbicides already being sprayed on GMO crops aren’t working anymore.

It would be great if the FDA and USDA would protect consumers from the madness of Monsanto’s “Moron” Strategy.But instead, our government agencies are intent on protecting only one thing: "CORPORATE PROFITS"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In fact last year, the FDA actually raised the limit of glyphosate residue allowed on your fruits and vegetables—despite several new studies exposing glyphosate’s toxicity. According to one of those studies, glyphosate is “insidious and manifests slowly over time, as inflammation damages cellular systems throughout the body… it may in fact be the most biologically disruptive chemical in our environment.”

Only a moron would want to use more, not less, of the “most biologically disruptive chemical in our environment,” right?

We are having a pretty warm and humid night it's going to be around 67 so think the air is going on just for the night before my mom goes to bed.
Got a huge rain system moving in tonight too we could get up to 3 inches of rain by the time it's over then comes the cooler weather with highs in the 50's Thursday and Friday.
Fall is getting closer and closer it's so depressing how early it gets dark.I know what you mean about being ready for bed so early.
It won't be much longer and my mom will be doing away with all her flowers outside and the grill will be getting covered.
We spend all winter looking forward to summer just for it to come and go so fast.

It really cooled off here ! Daddy had to get up during the night to close windows ! ! Mom wore long pants to school even . . . and again tomorrow ! Thursday is supposed to get warm again - but with thunderboomers ! Looks like mom may have an indoor recess . . .

Mom came home at 3:00 today ! Tuesday is the day she has no prep time and she was just exhausted ! She sat on the sofa and played with me for a while before changing my papers and getting my dinner . . . then she made burritos for her and dad. Now he's in the kitchen cleaning up ! I have a feeling though that they are heading out for a walk :( Before the weather gets too cold and the nights come too early . . .

You be a good boy and no more jumping in chocolate pie ! ! ! That's not healthy ! By the way, did it tickle when mama Rose licked the chocolate off your toes ? heeh hee heee !

  Hi Kallie
I wish we could tell you that all 2500 animals lived, but sadly, that's not true. The center does have a release rate of about 65%, which is double the national average of releases from wildlife rehabilitators, but many of the animals that come in are injured beyond anything the center can do. Yesterday, for example, a red bat was brought in with such extensive shoulder and wing injuries, he was immediately euthanized. It was the most merciful thing to do. A couple of weeks ago, though, a snake was brought in who had swallowed a ceramic egg. We were able to find a vet surgeon who was willing to operate, and the snake is well on his way to a complete recovery! It just depends on what animals are brought in and how badly injured they are. The orphan birds and mammals are a lot easier to raise, though, and we do have a pretty decent release rate with them.
I hope you are having a great day, Kallie, and getting lots of love and attention today. Hugs, Falco

My mom will only be at the Parrot Palooza on Saturday. But, they (mom & aunt Arlene) are staying four nights. They had planned on visiting with Tooth's moms for a mini vacation. Now, more moms are staying longer too. So, don't know the plans. I guess they will wing it.

Come visit me, Chyna & Bailey ♥ RIP.

  Hi Kallie
hope you had a beautiful day. moms magazine rack collapsed today because of all the magazines in it so mom went threw and got rid of all magazines that weren't from 2014 except for a few years of bird talk which she kept. then she tried to repair the magazine rack which is a piece of crap but it would cost almost $100 to replace the same thing. so she used electrical insulation tape for the bottom of the rack and once all the magazines were inside you can't even see it.

love Cori

  Hi Kallie
Oh that IHOP sure sounds yummy.They use to have these funnel cakes every summer that my mom loved to get otherwise she likes the cinnamon swirl french toast.The parronts haven't been there forever lately they have gone to cracker barrel for breakfast.
Today started off just as beautiful as the weekend was would be so nice if it stayed like this all year.The cooler air is going to be moving in mid week along with lots of rain going to be in the upper 50's looks like fall is coming in.
We still have a few tomatoes coming in on our tomato plant probably going to be the last of them.
Happy Monday I hope your week is off to a good start.

  Hi Kallie !
The weather is nice and cool today - only in the 70's. The sun was out earlier but it's starting to get cloudy now . . . mom says the days are much easier when the kids don't feel like they're missing out on outdoors time . . . She says it'll still take another week or so for everyone to settle into the routine.

How was your Monday ? I hope mama Rose was able to stay home at least for a while ! Did she and papa Rich bring home any breakfast to share yesterday ? That was really nice that bro took them out for breakfast. Mom likes that idea - no dressing up, no stress, just good food ! Our IHOP is like that too - no matter what time you go, there's always a wait.

And that's all the news from NY ! Be a good boy and give everyone lots of love for me ! cookie

  Hi Kallie
My goodness, Kallie, your mom never stops! Mom didn't hear from her grands yesterday, but she wasn't expecting to. She and Lena are meeting tomorrow for lunch, though, so that will be nice. It sounds like your weather is getting more autumnal, we are still in summer mode here, except that the pools are closed and the kids are back in school. It was nice of sis to take everyone out to breakfast.
Yesterday mom did one tour in dinosaur hall. That one lasted nearly an hour, too! She just can't seem to shut up or make her comments brief, heehee. For the second tour, there were not enough people, so the other woman working with mom took the 5 people and did the tour. Mom walked through the hall and talked to a few folks, then came home to us.
This morning mom did the RVS room at the center. There were only 3 raccoons in there! It has really emptied out, now that fall is approaching. They only had 2 intakes this morning while mom was there, too. That's as opposed to 10 or so in 2 hours in the spring/summer months. They have taken in over 2500 animals so far this year. At any rate, she got that room done quickly, then decided to tackle the mountain of dishes. After an hour, she had all the dishes washed, disinfected, rinsed, and stacked! That was a lot of work.
Little boy fox squirrel got returned this morning, too. He rejected the syringe feeding last night in favor of feeding himself, and he did the same this morning, so it was time for him to go into a larger cage at the center and grow up some more.
I hope you are having a good day today, getting sunshine with low humidity like we are. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Kallie
I sure hope your dad can drive mom and Nana to the parrot palooza. We will only be at that on Saturday. Don't forget the button. I would think that someone would help out with all of you. It's not like you will be gone a long time.

Come visit me, Chyna & Bailey ♥ RIP.

Are Pesticides Lowering Our Intelligence?
fascinating research originating from Harvard’s School of Public Health. Published in Lancet Neurology, assessed five chemicals and metals known as “neurotoxicants” which are substances that are toxic to the brain and nervous system. The researchers analyzed the effects of a group of pesticides known as “organophosphates.”

After assessing the effects of typical organophosphate exposure in children aged 0 to 5, the Harvard researchers found that this class of pesticides caused a collective drop in IQ of 16,899,488 points. Because brain functions develop sequentially, the full effects of early neurotoxic damage might not become apparent until school age or beyond.

Because early childhood exposure to pesticides through playing on sprayed lawns and eating produce containing the toxins can result in a loss of cognitive skills, the exposure reduces these children’s intellectual and economic potential. the health implications to children (and potentially adults as well, since this study only explored the effects on children) is of serious concern.

After assessing the full economic impact, the scientists estimated that for each loss of one IQ point a person‘s estimated lifetime earnings capacity also dropped by USD $18,000 or €12,000.

The journal Environmental Health Perspectives established a link between pesticide exposures and autism.

With the mounting evidence of the health, social, environmental, and economic implications of our continued use of toxic pesticides, isn’t it time for a total ban of these toxic substances?

  Hi Kallie
Well my mom's car got fixed before she went to work Friday morning it drives a thousand times better now.
It's been a gorgeous weekend here nothing but sun and blue sky with temps in the 70's. My mom loves this weather with the warm days and cool nights.
I have got lots of mom time this weekend as she ran a few errands yesterday to pay a few bills and get a few things at some stores.Then today she spent most of the day with me then only left shortly to run to a grocery store to get some things for dinner and stuff for her lunches at work.
This afternoon I took a huge bath in my water bowl then got a corn on the cob. Now I'm ready for a nap as it was a full afternoon.
Hope your weekend has been just as nice. Have a great evening.

Did I see on Chyna's page that mama Rose is going to try to get to Parrot Palooza ? Yippeee skipppeeeee ! Mama Mary is so happy about that !

After the rains and thunderboomers last night we woke up to much nicer weather ! Most importantly, no humidity ! It's a perfect day - the sun is shining and I have corn on the cob waiting for me for dinner ! Mom made cornflake chicken and the house smells so good ! There's a load of laundry going - sheets and towels - this is when mom wishes we had a clothesline . . . she remembers when she was a kid how good everything smelled coming in from outdoors !

Well, I must now run - mom says dinner is ready ! You be a good boy and give my love to everyone in your family ! love Cookie

  Hi Kallie
What a beautiful fall picture! You are such a handsome guy! Of course, all we conures are eggseptionally good looking, but that pic says you are outstanding!
Thanks to your mom for the prayers, mom is sure they help.
Today there is a bird show but mom isn't going, since it will be too much of a rush to get to work on time if she does. That, and the last time she went to this particular show, she was underwhelmed, to say the least. They used to take up the whole fire hall, even moved the trucks outside for the event, but last time, they fit into one room and there were not very many vendors.
Mom did her job yesterday, but there were no people for the rocks and minerals tour that she did at noon, so she walked through the hall and talked to people who were already there, giving them fun facts and answering questions. She started the dinosaur tour with 2 people only, but ended up with about 12. They kept joining as she walked and talked her way through dinosaur hall. One problem with not having been there for a month was that the mini tour turned out to be not so mini after all. She spent an hour with the group, when she is supposed to do the public tours in 30 to 40 minutes. Nobody left, though, so they must have been interested. Today she has 2 tours in dinosaur hall, both public, so she may be able to hone the tour to a shorter time, heehee. I'm laughing, because I know how mom gets carried away in that hall!
Today is another gorgeous day outside, it's sunny, warm, and just beautiful. Hope you are also enjoying some late summer fantastic weather, and getting lots of cuddles too. Hugs, Falco
