Hi! My name is Nikki

I am a Dusky-Headed Conure from Burlington, MA.

Miss Nikki, Nik-Nak, Ballerina Girl

14 years old   F

Dusky-Headed Conure

Millet and fresh fruit are my very favorite treats.

There's nothing better than sleeping in my mommy's shirt next to my husband, Charlie. Sometimes a bag or box will work too.

I hate big, new inanimate objects. Loud noises are scary too. Dogs, cats and hawks should never come near my yard!

Mommy kisses my tummy and tells me I'm pretty.

I love playing with my toys. Paper bags and boxes are great to shred. And I love singing to Doo Wop and Classical music. Unfortunately I like to pull my feathers out too!.

"Where Charlie goes, I follow"!.

  Hi Nikki
Oatie here. Hey looks like you beat the plucking!! I haven't that's for sure. In fact I'm worse. Mom says it's cooling off enough that I can probably start wearing a sweater. Mom's also thinking about a collar for me. Ah well, with this big move to NC I'm pretty stressed. We do have a great home now and all but it's still quite the change. We got here just as the rains started then the hurricane followed by the earthquake. What a welcome!! We were far enough inland not to have anything but about 6" of rain from the hurricane. Not bad at all.

  Hi Nikki
Oatie here. Mom doesn't know why I'm a plucker either. When I got here I had most of my feathers but have plucked ever since. I have a better diet than I did at my old home. She has a humidifier but she guesses it isn't enough. She's wondering if Sophie told me to pluck and then I'd get more attention. I does work too.
You guys hear that we'll be moving to the East end of July? Yep over to NC. Mom has been so busy she doesn't let us on much. By the time it's evening she's shot.. I guess that means she's to tired because I haven't seen any blood on her. I miss her being on the computer all the time because I always watched the kids walk past the house..and mom says that school is out so that they don't walk past anyhow. Ah well, we'll be getting a new view later anyhow. Right now we get to scream at the cows out behind our place. Not our cows but cows at any rate. Well mom says it's way past time for her to do more packing so I gotta fly. Stop by any time, I like the company but it may take a bit for me to get back at ya.

  Hi Nikki and Charles
Punkin here.
Here it is my very last vote day and I want to THANK EVERYBIRDIE FOR ALL YOUR VOTES. WITHOUT YOU I COULD NEVER HAVE MET SO MANY AND HAD SO MUCH FUN. THANKS AGAIN.
Now onto the more important things.....I know that our dear Queen Falco is having computer trouble. Yep, of all times for her eh? I am planning so much for my party that everybirdie will attend...I hope. Don't worry about being late or early as there are many who love to party and rarely miss one. And rarely turn in until way late. hehehe I have gotten the castle staff to start fixing the flowers and veggies for tonight/tomorrow. They say they are very excited to taste them themselves so it should be good. They are busy making ice cubes...that started yesterday...with flowers and for some adventurous ones out there, bugs. Mostly for BooBoo, our jay friend. I know me and my Co. of finches are going to try them. Then I have asked Martini to set up a bar to serve his magic mixes. The Thirsty Parrot is bringing appetizers. And we all know how good they are! And of course, Ollie's Pie Shop is providing the desserts. Not sure what all that will be but they make the best so who cares? As always Popeye is going to be there with her security force.
I have no real theme this time, however, everybird will be getting a lovely flower of their choice as a gift. OF COURSE THEY CAN BE EATEN!!!! But please don't eat the whole plant so you can enjoy more flowers. Whatever is left (if any) gets planted in the gardens.
Please come and enjoy Queen Falco's and MY party.

Flowers of the day:

Corn Shoots (Zea mays) - Corn shoots may be eaten when they resemble large blades of grass with a strong sweet corn flavor, which could be used as a garnish for a corn chowder. The whole baby corn in husk may also be eaten, silk and all.

Marjoram (Origanum majorana) - Flowers are a milder version of plant's leaf. Use as you would the herb.

Burnet (Sanquisorba minor - The taste usually is likened to that of cucumbers, and burnet can be used interchangeably with borage.

Now the page/pages everybird has been waiting for!

http://whatscooki- ngamerica.net/EdibleFlowe- rs/EdibleFlowersMain. htm

http://www. ces.ncsu.edu/depts/hort/h- il/hil-8513.html

One last note...Molly asked mom to write up something and make sure that she sent the flower pages into BC so they could publish it as there are many birdie parronts that are either not in our circle or just don't have a computer. Mom and I are going to do just that. Mom got permission from the page's owner as long as mom mentions whose page it is. The said lady is.... Linda Stradley. We can thank her for her hard work.

  Hi Nikki,
it was my pleasure to add my wee vote to help you achieve the status of Queen for a day.
I look forward to you and Charlie's visit...

We had a not so fun night, the power went out at about 7:30 pm and it was all over our area. Someone ran their car into what mom called a transformer that took out the power all over West Pasco where we live. Mom had to give us our fresh night time water and snacks quickly before it go to dark to see, it was almost to dark already. We had to go to bed a little early last night, it was scary without the lights and Simon was yelling at mom. I think he was a little scared. The power came back on about 2 hours later so that was good. Mom had a busy day today, she went grocery shopping...we like shopping day cause mom always gets us yummy food to eat. We had fresh corn on the cob today...

Wing hugs and a vote from your friend Jewels
