I went to a Bird Expo, and wasn't expecting to buy anything. To be honest, I didn't want another bird yet, but as I was about to leave, I saw him, and was talked into getting him by my mom, who reminded me how he was a rare breed and how getting babies to hand-feed yourself are hard to find (he was still getting hand-fed and the breeder had said he'ds only sell him to me since I had experience hand-feeding birds before). So I ended up buying him, and though I wasn't ready for another bird, after some time, he grew on me, and now we are happy.

In Frieck's point of view: I was chirping happily at the bottom of my cage, with a full stomach, since I just ate my baby-bird formula. A girl came over and looked at me, in which I quickly went over to her. My owner let her hold me, and I chirped excitedly the whole time. She didn't seem to excited about me though, especially when my owner's friend started bashing on Lovebirds. She handed me back to my owner and walked away. I thought that was the end of that, but then she came back and I was taken home. Later I realized why she was sure was hard at first to be rebound bird after Toose, but now my new mom and I have our own special bond (though I really like her brother too).

Hi! My name is Frieck

I am a Lineolated Parakeet from Calistoga, CA.

Freeek bird

6 years old   M

Lineolated Parakeet

Oranges, bannanas and monkey chow.

On my brother's shoulder, the dinner table, and my head.

He doesn't like it when I pet my puppy while he's out of his cage. I think he's jealous, because he chirps angrily and attempts to get her.

She takes me out a lot, and bathes me frequently. She also gets real excited to see me when she gets home (though I'm the one who instigates it since I chirp as loud as I can as soon as I hear her voice, hehe).

He hangs upside down, hanging onto his perch with one leg while chirping and whistling crazily..

I'm too cute not to like!.

Think we have chatted before but if not sure glad to know you and if we did well its been a long time so glad you stopped in my friend!!
In case you didn’t get cake and ice cream or any other foods from my hatchday yesterday there is plenty left so just help your self. Sunday evening mom and dad went to see the Duquesne University Tamburitzans perform. They both enjoyed it a lot. The singing and dancing was from the European countries so mom had no idea what the words were but dad knew a few of the words. Mom said it sounded very pretty any way and dad agreed. The costumes were so colorful and added to the show as well. By the time the parronts got home I was sound asleep but I did come out to give mom a kiss good night and then mom covered me up and I soon fell back to sleep again. “If your alone, I’ll be your shadow. If you want to cry, I’ll be your shoulder. If you want a hug I’ll be your pillow. If you need to be happy, I’ll be your smile. But anytime you need a friend, I’ll just be me. Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Glad you like my picture. I love listening to my jungle talk toy like that and mom finally got the kodak moment with it. When mom went to the store yesterday she came home with another magazine about crocheting again. I saw her looking at it a bit today and turning pages down on the patterns she liked apparently. I say she has enough to do right now and needs to get them done before she gets ideas on other things to do. She keeps saying about the Swedish weaving afghan she needs to finish up and been 6 years she been working on that. She only has about two more patterns on it to do and finish it up too. “Love doesn’t make the world go round, love is what makes the ride worth while.” Your big green friend, Gus.

Glad to hear from you again and we are doing fine. A little cold here right now and snow flakes in the air but we are fine. Moms birthday isn’t for a few months yet but she got something in the mail today for it she said. Guess she has to send in money to get it though and then its good for 4 years. Oh and she gets to have her picture taken too. She didn’t seem very happy about that cause she said they never turn out like glamour shots LOL. Guess it allows her to drive for four more years though.

  Hi Sweetie
It's SO good to hear from you. You and your birdies, especially your sweet Toose are not forgotten. I haven't been blogging as much as I used to, but BC friends are always in my thoughts & prayers. After all, there's no friends like bird friends, right?

I'm not surprised that Toose was in your dreams. She was such a big part of your life and you loved her so much. Love hurts because everything/everyone dies eventually on this side of the grave. Yet, how empty life would be without love. You have to take the risk and it's worth the pain of loss to have loved. I'm so happy to hear that your sweet boyfriend loves birdies too. I couldn't see you with someone who didn't love animals.

Things are good here. My girls are both grown & married. I do miss my granddaughters, since they moved from living in Racine, here, to the Portland, OR area. It was a job-related move. That's how things are now and I accept it. My younger daughter still lives in the area, about an hour drive. She graduated in '10, married last summer and has been applying for teaching jobs since she finished her intership & got her teaching certificates in IL and WI. The teachers here are hanging on to their jobs and not retiring, something that she didn't anticipate while going to school. Lately, she has been getting substitute teaching jobs in about 3 different schools. One is in Racine and I have been puppy-sitting for her when she works in Racine. She has an adorable Cavilier King Charles Spaniel and I find myself liking puppies now because of her. Angel & Pepper keep their distance from puppy. So far it has worked out okay. I'm looking forward to a trip to St. Louis at the end of the month for my nephew's wedding. I will be taking the birdies with me, as I would be worried about them, especially Angel, who is very attached to me. He is now 15 1/2 and Pepper is 13 1/2 and I am afraid to leave them with anyone. You know, birds can stop eating if they are freaked and then it's all over. They are such interesting creatures!

Blog when you can. I know that you are super busy with school and working. Try to treasure the time, as it is a special time in your life. Blessings and best wishes to you.


Angel, Pepper & mom, Sandy

Don’t know what is going on here this week but every day mom is going somewhere. She doesn’t stay for long which is good other then the other day when her and dad went to the farm…that was a long day. Now to top it off she must be wanting to fly cause she went for her flu shot today.

I bet you're still fast asleep at this moment, Frieck, so I'll write real quietly so I don't wake ya up...

Yup, there are little hints of color in the trees I can see out my window; some rusty reds, some mellow yellows, a bit of burnt orange. Don't think the colors are gonna be as brilliant here this year 'cause we didn't get much rain during the summer. The pictures of me on my page with the fall leaves were taken a couple of years ago when we had a really pretty autumn. Don't know if I'll get any new photos for my collection this year or not. Hope so. I like goin' out and sittin' in the trees for pictures.

Hope your weekend's a nice one. You'll get a break from helpin' mom study, right? or does she sometimes have homework on the weekend too? Knowin' your mom, she'll make playin' with you a top priority! Who wouldn't — you're so cute!

That is great you wormed your way into your moms heart and sure knew what you were doing apparently LOL. It is good for your mom to have you too and glad she is studying hard too.
Yesterday mom decided to hang a few clothes out on the line and then she washed the summer comfort and hung it out there too. Well needless to say the comfort didn’t dry and the clothes didn’t either so she just wasted her time hanging them out. It was cloudy and only 48 here yesterday. The line is still hanging so guess mom hasn’t given it up completely though. “The most beautiful view is the one I share with you.” V4U ……Your forever friend, Chi chi

  Hi Frieck
(Is that pronounced freek?)
I'm Zippy running for BOTM. Here is my current speech:
“Polly, you sure do like to collect different perches!”
“That BIG perch next to you.”
“NO, Zippy, this is a RAIN STICK”
“There's rain in there?”
“No, it SOUNDS like rain. Listen.” He turns the stick over, it makes a tinking sort of noise.

Remember way back at the beginning of the month I told you about the first castle wedding? While Kiddo and SweetPepper were away on their honeymoon, Kacey (SweetPepper's flockmate) and her boyfriend Mikey put in the skating rink and bowling alley at the castle as their wedding present to the new couple. The ice rink was for SweetPepper and the B.A. was for Kiddo. This began the tradition of the BOTM adding something to the castle if they so decided. It came in handy, because one of the earliest milongas was an ice dancing party and the next month was a bowling party.
However Kiddo wanted a contribution to the castle of his own, so he put in the Jungle room which if filled with rainforest type plants and a stream which ends in a fountain. The trees are specially picked for climbing, and the fountain and stream are exactly the right depth for a nice bath. Soon after the Jungle Room was finished, the BC Circus was held. Anyway Kiddo was in the circus with George the Tiger in a big cat training act. So when George told Kiddo he wanted to run away from the circus, Kiddo invited him to come live at the castle since he was so fond of birds (but in a good way, not a hungry way). Over time George become a sort of emissary or even a butler of the castle. When the BOTM comes to the castle his or her tour is conducted by George, and usually from his back.

Thank you so much for following my version of the history of the castle and BC. Thank you for your votes.

A PS from Kaji
You know, Turk was the Master Caterer. When he flew to the Rainbow Bridge, my nephew Olly took over the catering. He ran the Pie Shop, and he and Lizzie ran Turk's Dragon Catering. Then Olly flew to the Bridge. Lizzie continued to do the catering for the Milonga's and she did the catering for Mikey and Kacey's wedding. Just hearing Turk's name makes me smile, cuz Lizzie just adored Turk! She still goes to get recipes from him at the Bridge.

  Hello Mr. Frieck
Today I thought I would introduce myself and set the 'stage'. For my campaign for BOTM I would like to consider the history of the Castle, where all BOTM and BOTD reside. I have asked Polly to provide some atmosphere by playing minstrel. He will accompany me on his lute.
“Hey Zippy, its a banjo”
“Polly, what about your guitar?”
“I broke my last one at the Western Milonga when I was 'El Kabong'”
“Don't you at least have a mandolin? It would be a little closer to what I was thinking.”
Polly shakes his head.
“O.K., with background music on a banjo, I will attempt to narrate some history.”
Way, way, way back in time, our dear friend Kelly *v* became BOTW (Sept. 2008). On the last day of her reign, Kelly threw a party. BOTW Kelly *v* issued invitations to a Masquerade. Kiddo showed up as a knight. Kelly's skinmom made her a beaded crown which she wore for her pictures. Thereby was the custom of wearing crowns instituted. Upon her coronation as BOTM, (Oct. 2008), she declared the party to be at the castle. And behold, in the magic that is of BC, a castle appeared. And then did Queen Kelly's many friends party.

Many thanks to Kelly *v* Miss SweetPepper pointed out to me that many NEW to BC birds do not know what is going on with B(ird)O(f)T(he)D(ay)/BOTD and B(ird)O(f)T(he)M(onth)/BOTM.
The BOTD is the bird with the most votes in one day. The day following the votes, that bird has its profile picture in the Bird of the Day spot on the right side bar. The 'account' also receives 1000 points.
Now the BOTM is the bird with the most for a whole month. The 'account' receives 10,000 points. To see the BOTM, go to the Bird Eclub on the left side bar. Scroll past the Birdie Quiz to the next set of tabs. On the very right is Top Bird. Click there and you will find the BOTM. Click on the name, and you will get to that bird's page, and you can find out what has been happening in the castle. The birds on BC honor our BOTM by referring to the bird as King or Queen for the month of their reign. The castle is in our imagination, although a page is being set up, #239094 (#234862 not active in 64 days as of 7/29/12).
There has been a campaign for BOTM. The month prior to the honor, the bird running, visits as many birds as the campaigner is able, soliciting votes. Recently the campaigns have had a theme.
Every day, the castle is the residence of the BOTD along with that month's BOTM.
A piece of history is that back a few years ago there was BOTW (Bird of the Week) instead of BOTD. So you will find BOTW awards in the award section of pages.
ANOTHER point of interest is that although you only get points for 1 vote and 1 blog per day, you may vote (for different birds) AND blog multiple times in one day.
Hope this is helpful, and please VOTE 4 ME.

  Hi There
Pepper here... That was really good news that you have new baby pigeons and chickens. Has it been dry by you? We are having a drought here & mom is praying for rain for the farmers. It would be awful for everyone if they lose their crops. Some are having to sell their livestock because the crops they feed them with have failed. Hope things are okay by you...

  Hi Frieck!
It was good to hear from you again. We hope you are enjoying your summer & time off from school. Mom hasn't been blogging for us much, because she has been pitching in on getting Grandma's house ready for sale. Grandma turned 90 on July 5 and unfortunately, needs round-the-clock care. The place she is in is good, but, of course, it is very difficult for her. To pay for the nursing home care, the family has to sell her house. It's been overwhelming for everyone, to say the least!

Do you still have a puppy and a horse? You are a very pretty bird!

  Hi Frieck!
I'm sorry that it's taken so long to get back to you. Mom has been kind of behind on things that need to be done. It is always great to hear from you. I agree with you that it most likely, it was the Lord closing the door on getting the lovebirds. Mom still remembers how heartbroken you were when Toose flew to the Rainbow Bridge & the Lord is sparing you that. Frieck is very cute and sounds like a fun bird. How great it is, too, that you have a bird/animal lover for your boyfriend. He fits right in!

What did you finally end up majoring in? Teacher? Nurse? Vet? Being such a compassionate person, mom could see you in any of these jobs.

Well, write when you can. You are not forgotten.

  Heya, Frieck! glad your Mom has you! I know she totally loved Toose, so it is awesome that you got to come home with her! It is also nice to hear that you also like her brother--so many times us birds get bonded to one person, and everyone else is considered a threat! Sounds like you are social birdie!!!
