Since I only had a bonded bonded pair of budgies, I wanted a bigger bird that would bond with me and be my friend. My parents told me I could get a bigger bird when I turned 13 (I was 10 at the time), but after begging, they told me I could get a conure and they would pay for half of her as my Christmas present. So I started searching on craigslist and petfinder. After a while, I found an ad for a pineapple green cheek conure. I remembered playing with one of those at the pet store, and how sweet he was. So I had my mom email the lady. After chatting for a while and trying to talk down the price, my parents said we could get her as long as she looked healthy when they went to pick her up. A few days later, they went to pick her up and she was healthy. I fell in love with her when I saw her. Now we are best friends!

Her Hatchday is June 21st 2008.

Hi! My name is Peatree

I am a Green-Cheeked Conure from Clermont, FL.

My name was Peatree when mommy got me. When she first got me, she didn't like that name at all and wanted to change it to Abigail. But I could say Peatree and looked at you when you said Peatree. Mommy likes my name now.

My full name is Peatree Abbigail. Yes, two B's!

I have A LOT of nicknames! :D Peachy, Peach, Pea, Baby, Baby Girl, Shnuggy, Baby Doll, Peachy Abby Gailey, Sweetie, Sweetheart.


6 years old   F

Green-Cheeked Conure

I love sunflower seeds, cashews, ice cream, lolly pops, bananas, parakeet seeds, black berries, raspberries, and peanut butter.

With mommy, with grandma, on top of my cage, and in the living room on my T-Stand, and the shower.

Bellatrix and Hermione, when people touch my tail, and when mommy forgets to uncover my cage right when she wakes up.

She got me from my old owner who left me in my cage and never took me out and played with me. She loves me soooooo much, and I love her back ♥

If mommy doesn't uncover me within 5 minutes of her waking up, I'll yell and ring my bells..

I am in charge!

  Hello Peatree~
I hope you are having a great day! We got the car back this morning! YAY! New transmission and an oil change and he is in great shape. Mom is going to have to remember she doesn't have to go really, really slow until he grabs 1st gear now! Felt a bit strange but we are so happy to have it done!
We got the linen closet all cleaned out and made room to store the huge package of paper towels and toilet paper. Mom also got a few cases of bottled water she is keeping in there too. There was an e-coli contamination out on Mercer Island and it closed down all the restaurants for days and everyone had to boil their water. We use a Brita filter but mom doesn't think that it will filter e-coli. She has decided to give me, Mandy and Merlin bottle water to drink just to be safe. They have no idea where the contamination came from and mom doesn't want to take the chance it might happen here. Maybe she is just being too paranoid but she would rather be safe than sorry!
Kaji is only 11 away from his 10K so he will be there very soon. The 10k page is ready for a party so please stop on by tomorrow and congratulate him and grab some food!

  October's BOTM POST number ONE
Hello every birdie, my name is Jesse, a double-yellow headed Amazon, from the Sky Flock. I am your October BOTM candidate. This month I will be exploring many new and important developments in the avian world, as well as eggploring some controversial techniques and methods used presently and in our past all in the name of profit. I know that you will be both encouraged, and shocked at what we will discuss this month. Some of your parronts might need some Kleenex too as we look at my most important subject--" at what cost?"
Before we get started I want to take a few minutes to thank everyone for all their support, and daily votes for my fister Queen ANGEL GIRL.The words of condolence sent for the loss of our beautiful Umbrella Cockatoo Fister Sassy have touched my Momma's heart and have helped her through the last days. Because of Sassy's critical illness last month, Momma Deb's attention and energy was given to what mattered the most, loving and caring for Sassy. Thank you all for supporting my Fister even when blogging was last thing on our minds. She promises to make up for it this month by holding a fun SCOTTISH FESTIVAL to be announced.
I will work diligently to both entertain and inform you as the month progresses. October looks to be a very busy month, with our Canadian Thanksgiving and of course Halloween. Our BOTM campaign month will include a fun Halloween SPOOK-TACTUAL PARTY. I trust you shall enjoy our month spent together and I look forward to meeting many new friends, and blogging daily with lots of my long time friends too.
My history is rather ordinary compared to others int he Sky Flock. I lived with my first daddy and mommy most of my life. My daddy became ill, and went away and never returned. I missed my Daddy whom I loved early and became very angry. My Mommy did not understand me, and became afraid of me, and put me into a small cage in a far off corner to "protect" the Grandchikldren. I hated it and became even more aggressive and angry. Finally I was sold to a lady who loved me, but did not understand me, and when I bit her aggressively posted me for sale once more. Momma Debhad always wanted a DYH Zon and saw the ad. I was the second larger parrot to move into what became the Sky Flock. Momma has had to work hard with me about my biting, and I still do if given the chance. However, I have my very own room to fly in, a best buddy Ollie, a Quaker, a TV and lots of love. Momma says I am 200% better then the day I arrived. It just proves that hands-off parrots can be greyt companions too. I have my forever home.
Tomorrow we will begin by looking at some very controversial methods used to stop biting in companion Parrots.
with love and hugs
Jesse 227428

  Hi ya Peatree~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!! We are playing
"Where in the World is the computer's cursor?"hahahahaha
It's a very fun game and when the cursor vanishes you have to wait for a few seconds to find it! Mom should market it to all computer users! I'm sure there are lots of people out there who would love to sit around and wait for that cursor to re-appear! Okay, so you would need a lot of patience to play this game and it might not be for everyone!
They are changing out the flags in front of our building today. There are 8 of them, 4 on each side of the driveway. The ones up there are blue and green with red tulips but since it's Autumn they are putting up gold ones and burgundy ones with gold stripes. They are very nice looking but I think I like the tulips better. I guess the tulip flags will be back in the spring.
They are also cleaning the vents on the roof over at the office building so I've been switching back and forth watching the vent cleaning and the flags. It's like a double feature at the movies!hehehehehe
Enjoy your day! Leaving an Autumn hug and a vote too!
Love you ~ Sugar

I hope you are having a great day! Well! What do you think about the new flock members? It is so cool that you have two conures to spend time with! I really do hope you all get along. You are use to other birds around so I bet you won't have any problems at all! I've been an only bird for so long I would probably have a fit if there was another one around here!!
I hope you all enjoy the day!

I hope you are having a great day! It's starting out cool and misty here! Just the way it should be!
Only 2 more days until the fair is over down in town! It's really fun but there is way too much traffic down there during the fair time. My skin sister's boss went yesterday and brought back a whole bag of fair scones for us! YUMMY! Mom has the mix so we can make more at another time. They have raspberry jam in them!
Can you believe that it is the last day of summer?? I had a nice summer but I just love Autumn. Pretty colors and really yummy squash! Halloween too! Guess I had better start thinking about a costume!
I hope your day is just perfect!

  Hello Peatree~
I hope you had a wonderful day! I'm doing just fine. It's dark and cloudy on one side of the hose and very sunny on the other side! It looks so cool!
We are still struggling with the computer so it limits our time during mom's workweek! I hope you don't think I haven't been thinking about you, because I have! It can take us an hour just to get 3 notes out and when mom has to work that night, we just run out of time! I don't think it will be too long before dad can get it fixed up.
I am watching the Mikado with the skin sister! It's got lots of music and for some reason it is making me giggle! I don't usually like operas but this one seems to be funny!
I do hope you enjoy your evening!!
Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Peatree
what an exciting camp adventure your mom has had with her family and friends. she will remember this one for years to come. so glad her dad was able to rescue them both and better to lose ones glasses than lose ones life. i bet you all will be thrilled to see your mom again even if she won't be able to see you until she gets her new glasses.

love Boo Boo

  Hi Peatree
So happy to hear from you. That sure sounded like a greyt adventure at camp. They had a lot of fun things to do too. It wasn't greyt losing glasses, that sure isn't fun.
I hope we can meet next February. My dad is looking to rent a place south of St Pete. But, they will be driving around to different places. Mom is happy to get away from the snow. I'm happy cause I get to travel on vacation with my parronts to Florida! Skinsis will stay at home.
I'm back! What a week we had ... tornado, severe t-storms, flooding ... so many power lines and trees down on roads! Last night was an all night LOUD t-storm with no power. We finally got our power and internet (and phones) back tonight. I was scared and whimpering a lot. I didn't like that very LOUD noise that shook the house for hours. Mom made me take a long nap today and early to bed tonight. We were lucky, only a few trees down with power lines on two different nights. We lost trees on our property too. Hope every bird is fine, missed you.
Hugs
Chyna

OH PEATREE, I AM SO GLAD THAT YOUR MOMMY AND HER FRIEND QUINN ARE OKAY BUT THEY MUST MAKE SURE WHEN EVER OUT IN ANY TYPE OF BOAT THAT YOU HAVE YOUR LIFEVEST ON AND PROPERLY TIED/BUCKELD/CINCHED UP. THEY WERE VERY LUCKY. HOPE YOUR MOMMY'S DAD IS ABLE TO DRIVE HOME WITHOUT GLASSES ON. THEY SHOULD HAVE THOSE SAFETY STRAPS ON THEIR GLASSES WHEN DOING SPOTING THINGS. NEXT TIME THEY WILL BE PREPARED.

BET YOU WILL BE SO VERY HAPPY TO HAVE YOUR MOMMY HOME SAFE AND SOUND. WHEN DOES MOMMY GO BACK TO SCHOOL? HOPE SHE ENJOYS THE NEW SCHOOL YEAR AND LEARNS LOTS OF NEAT STUFF.

What an eggciting experience you had with the canoe!Your poor Mommy and her daddy who both lost their glasses like that in the heavy currents and being tipped over is just awful!It sure must be a fun trip though being able to do all those fun things every day!
Thank you for sharing it with us!

  Hi Peatree
Sounds like camp for your mom is lots of fun but know you miss her too. Mom always tells skin sis to take her old glasses with her also and last year at Myrtle Beach a wave took her new glasses off and away and she sure was glad to have her old ones to wear the rest of the vacation time then!
Today is the Parronts 28th wedding anniversary. No they arent young and just the second time around for both of them LOL. They didn’t go out to dinner and mom says maybe something later they will do but for now will wait and enjoy it more later then. That way they go somewhere they really want to instead of going just to go. I was glad they stayed home and spent the day with me too. “A real friend tells you when you have bird food on your beak” Leaving a vote for you…Hugs~~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Oh Peatree~~
I hope you are all home and safe!! That is not a funny story! That is a scary story! We are so glad mom was wearing a vest but if she ever goes out again, make sure it tight enough!!
I tell you this is why this little green zon does not like water! It's just a scary thing! I guess mom and her dad had to get new glasses huh?
I'm just glad they are home and I hope they had a fun time with the rest of the trip! Horseback riding is fun and you don't get wet!!heheheheheh
It is very cool that the family got to go together and spend time with so many friends too! I know there are going to be some great memories for your mom!!
You all enjoy your evening!!!

  Hi Peatree
That was a good camp story! My mom went canoeing a few times, too, and once it tipped over, but the water was calm and she can swim, so it was no big deal. We are sorry mom and her dad lost their glasses, though, that IS a big deal.
Wow, in case you didn't hear yet, mom got the best news yesterday. She went to the retina doc, expecting another shot, but they took pics, she reviewed them, and told mom it looks like it's under control, no bleeding! No SHOT!!! Mom has to go back on Oct. 6 for a recheck, since it could recur at any time, but it's looking great for now! Mom was so happy that after she treated her sister (driver) to lunch, she took her to the Italian pastry shop and bought her and her husband treats for dinner, too. The next checkup is right before Parrot Palooza, and mom is optimistic about getting a good report then as well.
Mom did the outdoor raptors this morning, as well as the menagerie animals. It is nice to work in an area where she could talk to the critters today for a change. She also returned little gray squirrel girl, since she's eating on her own and not needing hand feedings any more. Now she just has little boy fox squirrel to foster. He shouldn't be here more than a week more, either.
I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of sunshine and warm cuddles. Hugs, Falco

Wow, that's some story. Our dad has never been in one those floating things and now he never will. Dad doesn't like being wet unless he's taking a shower. Too bad your mom lost her glasses. Dad would be helpless without his glasses.
Hope your day was fun.

Wow, what a adventure your mom and family had. Would think it very scary at the time to fall out of the canoe and not being able to see from the lost glasses. Glad all is well and know she'll be telling this story for years to come. Sounds like the rest of the trip was fun too.

Hope you and Jester have an awesome reunion when your mom arrives to take you home. We know she missed you and know you will be happy to be all back together where you belong.

  Oh my !
That's some big adventure your s'mom had in that canoe ! I bet you were happy to see her again !

TGIF ! and it's for real this week ! Mom says it looks like a pretty good year - a few bad habits of talking out loud to fix, but that's pretty easy . . . it wasn't even so bad having recess duty - warm but nice. Today the humidity is supposed to return and then thunderboomers tomorrow. She hopes fall comes soon - not that she's wishing winter - just fall. It's much easier to keep the kids' attention when the weather is cooler ! Meanwhile, I sit home and work on some of my decorating projects. Yesterday I started weaving calculator paper around my perches :)

Have a good one ! love Cookie

Let's tell mom what a wonderful little bird you've been these last few days. You came easily out of your cage today and have been sitting on my shoulder for an hour. You weren't nippy like yesterday and you didn't fly onto one of the macaw cages. Currently, I'm receiving treat training. That's where you tell me that you want treats and I bring them to you. Maddy will be here to get you and Jester tonight. I'll miss you both when you're gone.

I hope you are having a great day! It's cloudy and cooler here and I am loving it! Having sunshine for so long this summer was a true blessing and we enjoyed every minute of it! It's just nice to have the normal weather back! It feels more like home that way!
We are getting some chores done today because mom has let a lot of things go and this place is a mess!!! Some days she has to pick between cleaning and getting some sleep and lately the sleep part wins! I have been supervising and we have completed the dining room and the living room. That evil vacuum will be out later but I'll be in the bedroom by then! I really hate that thing!hehehehehehe
Dad is on his way home. He's been gone for 2 months now so it's about time he came home! He called mom this morning and told her he got them a Costco membership. The company dad drives for delivers to Costco's all over the US. This is a bad thing since dad had no control when he goes into a Costco! He was delivering at one in Minnesota and went in to get a hot dog and decided to get a membership too!
I hope you have a wonderful day! Leaving a vote and a big hug too!

I hope you are having a great day! Everything is fine here at my nest. I'm having some playtime with mom and soon I will head off to the play cage for my apple.
We have lots of chores to get done today and I think mom is going over to the market to get a few things. It's only at the end of our driveway so she won't be gone long. Later on we will be getting some cooking done. My beans and grains for my mash are soaking and mom will cook those tonight. I am hoping that some corn bread will be on the menu too! A little corn bread to go with my mash sounds like an excellent idea to me!
How did the story time go? I hope your mom enjoyed it.

  Hi Peatree
happy to hear from you ... missed all of you. Sounds like you have been busy.
Did I tell you that I'm coming down to Florida next February? My parronts are staying for a few weeks and I get to go with them. Maybe we can meet.
I'm back! Mom had a fun mini vacation. First she visited with Finnegan, Lucy Blue and their mom. It was a short but lovely visit. Finn gave mom lots of kisses and Lucy was so funny and adorable. Mom hopes they can get together for a longer visit next time. Then she went over to aunt Gail's house for a few days. They had a greyt time with aunt Lydia too. I only wish I could have gone with her, maybe next time. The weather was really nice too. I'm happy mom is back home with me.
Hugs
Chyna

  Hi ya Peatree~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's still very pretty here and I am enjoying this last month of summer!

Today is the little niece Maddie 2nd birthday! Time flies! The picture in my gallery is from this morning! She is going to have a party today but I don't get to go. I guess one little kid around is okay but a whole bunch of them would be too much for me to take! I'll get to see her soon!

Merlin is shedding, Mandy is shedding and I am molting! That evil vacuum has been out way too much! mom tries to move us to different rooms when she uses it but she has had to use it so much in the past few days that one of us is always around! Merlin doesn't really care about it but it kind of freaks Mandy out! I go into Monster Bird mode and stomp around! Mom thinks it's funny when I do that! A little respect for the zon attitude is needed!!!!

Enjoy the day and I do hope it's just perfect! We hope your mom has fun with storytime! It's an awesome thing for her to do!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar

  Hi, Peatree
Sounds like the flock is doing well and hope that Jester keep his tail feathers intact.

How awesome the budgies get to accompany your mom to teach lil kids about their species. Know those kids will be very lucky to see a live bird that matches the story.

So, the painting for the bird show is that on feathers and is your mom gonna be showing 'em and selling 'em? That is really a very unique medium and impressive.

Not much going on here either. Skinsis, baby and furball moved, but not far so the parronts can visit easily.

Have a great day, wing hugs, beak kisses and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Hi Peatree
Glad your all doing well and how great the budgies will go to church with your mom fr a story time too! Cant wait to see new paintings and love the ones in the gallery!
Yesterday mom met up with her sister for the afternoon so that sure put a damper on my outside time and it was a nice day too. Mom said she would make it up to me today and she did! It was a pretty day and I got to sit out and enjoy the sun .Mom gave me a bath just before taking me out side so that sure felt good on my feathers too. Mom even washed the bed sheets and clothes and hung them all outside too and boy did they smell good when she bought them back in the house again. She repotted her spider plant as the pot was too small for it and boy did it have big roots on it. Mom is hoping it doesn’t die once she has to bring it back in for the winter. Every time mom would water the plants she would remember she had to repot that spider plant and then would forget till the next time they needed watered again. Now she is glad its done. It should give it some time to adjust before bringing it back in for the winter too. “To find one good friend in a lifetime is good fortune; to keep him is a blessing.” Leaving a vote for you! Your good friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Come visit me, Gus --Chi chi ♥ RIP & Chi chi RIP my sweet girl..

  Day 7 Waterin' holes or watering holes?
Howdy pardners, Cow Rangler Chuey here again, we spent considerable time today persuadin our Scout Kiddo off the Bar Stool at the waterin' hole he found. it took Jenny-lynn, some fancy ropin and a good cuttin' horse to get him back in the saddle. Miss Susan surprised us cow-punchers with a wonderful spread last night, given Lizzie and Kaji a much needed break.

The most famous "Trail Drives" during the early days of the American west, were from Texas north to the railheads in Kansas, and on to ranchers in more northern states.

They usually began in the spring, so that the cattle could feed on the new grass as they were herded along. For the northern ranges, the key element was to get to their destinations before an early winter came upon them. Also driving cattle driven in the spring, usually avoided the flooded rivers, so if a herd could leave at the right time, the streams and rivers would be shallow and fordable.

Starting too late could cause problems (including the loss of cattle) because the streams/rivers would be flooded from melted snow. The favorite speed was around 10 to 12 miles a day, although at different times, or under ideal conditions the herd might travel 18-24 miles per day. Generally a herd of steers moved faster, but a mixed herd that included cows and calves that moved slower, but was less likely to stampede.

In a trail drive, the cattle were "guided" and sort of drifted along rather than actually driven on an exact path. The drive started after breakfast, and went until time for the noonday meal (dinner) in which the Chuckwagon had gone ahead to pick a spot for the noonday meal. The Trail Scouts rode ahead to find a suitable night pasture.

A herd of around 3000 or so cattle would need somewhere between 12 to 15 drovers, and this included the Trail Boss, the cook, and the wrangler. Rank and/or status of the cowboy was determined by his place on the drive. The best positions were lead or point riders who "guided" the herd, the outriders on the flank were next, and the least favorite position was the "drag" riders who ate a lot of dust from the herd. At night two bird teams would take about two hour shifts, often singin' to the cattle to keep themselves awake. A term that was used for the shift was "Night Hawks" .
In the best of the trail outfits, each cowboy had between eight and 10 horses in a group of horses taken care of by the "wrangler" because the cowboys needed a good swimming horse, a good night horse etc. It was up to the Wrangler to know who each horse belonged to, and keep them together.

Well, times a flyin' and we gotta get these cows bedded down for the night at Bull-Run Creek.

Yipppeyiiiiahhhh cow dawgies

  Hi Peatree
It's Ginger.
Good to see you. Long time no squawk.
We've all been good. Mom and dad are busy as volunteers at the police dept. and dad has been doing a lot of work around the house. They have also been going to concerts in local parks. They're free and the bands are great. Last night was a big band that played songs from the 30s, 40s and 50s.
Hope your day is good.
Hugs,
Ginger.

  Hi Peatree
It's always good to see you, even if it isn't as often as it used to be. I hope mom is doing great artwork for the bird show, and will make lots of money from it! That idea of the story about budgies is cute, hope the budgies enjoy their outing.
Isn't it nice to have the avatars and aviaries back? We never got a response from i5, but they are back for sure. Mom wrote a thank you note to Crystal and i5 this morning when she saw them.
Yesterday mom got some errands run. She picked up the bracelet that she left at the jewelers last Saturday, got the calcium/vitaminD supplement her doc told her to pick up, and did shopping for fruits and veggies. While she was at the supermarket, she saw Turkey Hill ice cream for sale, so she picked up some of that, too. Of course, we don't get the ice cream, but mom seems to like having it take up freezer space for awhile. She couldn't find sugar snap peas for the boys and Maxine, but she found out today they will eat frozen peas.
I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of fun in the sun and attention. Hope to see you at Queen Zeena's banquet tonight at 6 eastern. Hugs, Falco
