When I first joined BC, I was surprised that there wasn't much conversation about conservation. I put up profiles of birdies who are less fortunate than the pampered Pollys that the BC people have. So, here is the extinct birds' page, making sure they are never forgotten. They flew our skys once, but never again. We should honor them and how they had to die because of us.

My favorite extinct birds:
Passenger Pigeon
Carolina Parakeet
Dodo
Great Auk
Ivory-billed woodpecker?

My favorite endangered birds
Kakapo
Peregrine Falcon
Spix's macaw
Orange bellied parakeet

BC Achievements:
Falco gave us our 100th vote on 7-30-11!

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches on the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all

And sweetest in the Gale is heard
And sore must be the Storm
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm

I've heard it in the chillest land
And on the strangest sea
Yet never in extremity
It asked a crumb of me
-Emily Dickenson

Hush, a voice from the far away.
Listen and learn it seems to say.
All tomorrows shall be as today.
The cord is frayed, the cruse is dry.
The link must break, and the cord must die.
Goodbye to hope, goodbye, goodbye.
-George John Whyte-Melville
Sung at Martha (the passenger pigeon)'s "funeral" (it wasn't a real funeral)

  Hi
We had one snow a good while ago but that has about it so far.Can you believe this morning dad emptied his oatmeal box and gave it to me! Me, who loves bags, dad, not boxes! Oh woo is me if dad ever has to take care of us if mom isn’t around. Mom took the goofy box out and gave me a paper bag though and then dad wanted to know just what was the matter with the box? LOL I told him but he didn’t understand me at all. “We want to tell all our BC friends so dear, hope you have a wonderful New Year.” V4U Your kissing cousin, Chi chi

  Hi
We havent gotten much snow here yet but we know it wont be long. I guess its time for that big turkey day again soon. I saw mom bringing Tom up from downstairs and he sure looked heavy and a bit….dead. We go through this every year and mom messes with old Tom for almost a week and then he disappears for another year. I suppose there will be people here again too. Oh well at least she doesn’t try this with me or Gus and only Tom so we are thankful for that! “Wishing you butterfly mornings and wild flower afternoons.” V4U Your kissing cousin, Chi chi

  Hi,
Did you get some pet parrots? Any pics yet?

Out parronts can tell us apart when you see us in birdson, in pics it's a bit harder...We have distinct personalities. Pearl is very pecky. One look at our tails will tell you who is who as Silver always has broken, bent or missing tail feathers. Pearl has a perfect tail. (Pearl flies and lands better.) The parronts don't know if we are related, but we were adopted together and already bonded. Not DNA tested, but fairly certain we're both males...

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Hi extinct birds,
Yes, i'm done with my nap. :) I'm still feeling sick tho. :(

  Hi,
Glad you NYers got some cooler weather. We are back to our 70s and breezy, at least in our part of CA, think the south is still hot...

  Hello
Polly here. The skin portion of the flock took a trip to visit another skin member that lives out of state. We had a neighbor taking care of us. We are happy to have the flock back. We missed them. AND the typist is back!
How are you doing the newsletters?

  Hi,
When you have some interesting or fun facts we'd like to see them. Always good to share info. We are fine. Skinsis came over yesterday and after dinner decided she wanted some popcorn. Out came the air popper and voila we have popcorn. So, munching on that. Cooler today. Nice, mild CA summer...
Have a great day, wing hugs, Pearl and Silver.

  Hello
How is the mom doing? Do you get to have any pets?
It is very sad when a species goes extinct. It is exciting when previously thought species are discovered, even in small quantities. Yes, we believe in the wise usage of resources.

  Silly birds!
You're not forgotten! We all love you and like talking to you. And do not plot against the others, they didn't do anything wrong. I think the easiest way to get people to talk to you is to go say hi to them. Pretty soon you'll have a back and forth conversation that can go on forever! Try it with a few people and you'll have all the blogs you could dream of.
Here's a vote and I'll continue to stop by.

Please don't feel rejected. We think of you all the time wishing there was a way of having you back. Humans are not always very (in fact pretty stupid) very smart when it comes to living beings other than themselves. There are those of us trying to change that but we so far are a small group. We are trying very hard to increase this group. We remember & love all of you. Left you a vote & will fly by again. Wing hugs........

Come visit me, Merlin Where have my friends gone?.
