  Hi, Stormy
Wow, fall like there? Still full summer here, but temps did drop a tad so we're just under 90 yesterday. We're hoping it'll drop more today to be our more mild summer.

Good of your dad to clean up the fresh mess and hopefully the bear decides to use somewhere else as a potty next time.

How fun to see so many hummingbirds. Sounds like they are hungry if they were watching him clean and refill the feeder waiting for it to be put back outside. Are you able to get any pics? They do move fast so might be challenging to get one.

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

  Happy Humpday !
It's like summer is on vacation and fall is trying to sneak in under the cover of night ! It's 57 now and only heading to 77 today - is this what they call the dog days of summer ?

Another day of love and play ahead :) I was a little cranky last night when dad wasn't home - I do expect both parronts to be here with me in the evenings ! ! You know the old adage - if mom says no, go ask dad ! ! ! har har har

Missing summer ? There are summer songs over at Name that Tune this week (page 231616). Give it a wing ! love Cookie

  Hi, Stormy
Still hot for us, but down a couple of degrees, not that one can tell. Still, it hopefully means today will go down more.

So, the black bear used your yard as a potty? Ick! Hopefully he doesn't do it there too much as imagine it would smell and not be great for the lawn or whatever plants it might've landed on. Who cleaned it up?

Our mom was told about a couple of free sites to make pics. Meant mainly for using on FB but works great for our BC pics. The one we like is piZap.com and know many other birds use it. Took our mom a lil while to figure it out, but not hard.

  Hey buddy !
What a wonderful surprise to wake up to see angel Christy as our BOTD ! It's the BC family thanking her for her wing in bringing Limon to the Dallas flock :)

We had a quick storm last night and the temperatures plummeted ! This morning we woke up to mid 50's and it's only hitting mid 70's ! Like fall ! ! ! Since it's Tuesday and that's the day daddy goes into NYC - it'll be me and mom for dinner time -

Have a great day ! love Cookie

  Hi Stormy
we don't know what we will do about Boo Boos nest. its a coconut shell that dad wired into a tiny easter basket. then mom fills the nest with alfalfa. the handle of the basket attaches to the top of the cage and Boo Boo swings in her basket when she jumps in it. she always sits in her basket every morning and makes baby sounds for dad who then gives her some canned dog food rolled up into a meatball. since she doesn't have the nest now she didn't make the baby sounds. she only makes them for dad. the bottom of her cage is lined with thick foam so she doesn't \hurt herself when she jumps down. every toy in her cage is a worry because of her bad leg and foot. she can't control it very much and it gets caught on things

my leg still hurts but at least i am using it.

love Boo Boo

  Hi, Stormy
Good that you are savoring your more mild summer. Still hot here, but isn't that bad since it has cooled in the evenings and cool in the mornings when mom is leaving for work.

Would assume that Aunt Rose thinks about what kinda pic to make and which fid pic to use and then just put 'em together and can be done quick. The first few times we did our own pic took a long time, but now that mom kinda, sorta knows what she's doing doesn't take that long.

We had a wonderful time at the Milonga, so glad to see you and the flock there.

Good morning ! I'm finally here - this is the second day in a row that we woke up to NO cable/internet ! During the night some really wicked storms came through - one KA-BOOM at about 3:40 was so loud it must have hit something ! As long as it didn't do any damage - there were no sirens so mom is hoping maybe just some minor damage . . . if any.

Well, mom's kitchen vacation is over :( Tonight she starts cooking again - bbq chicken and corn on the cob :) Nice going mom . . . find something daddy can cook ! har har har

Have a great day ! love Cookie

  Hi Stormy
mom and dad were eating dinner tonight and mom heard commotion coming from my cage and saw my foot was caught in my baby nest i sit in. i was flapping and hanging off the side by my bad leg. mom went over and held me so i wasn't dangling anymore and then dad took the nest from the cage which i was still caught in and worked for at least 3 minutes to get my foot untangled and dad said no more nest for me. tonight i sat all evening with mom in the bedroom and held my leg up but i still hoped around a bit using the leg. mom is glad i didn't pull my leg off i was struggling so hard.

  Hi Stormy !
It's already almost 8:00 in the morning and it's dark and dreary out ! Storms are occurring on and off all day. In fact when mom got up, although we had power, we had lost our internet/cable :( That put a damper on her morning !

Yesterday the parronts went to help out the g'parronts. After dad did the yard and mom took g'ma shopping (can you say cherries for $1.89 ?), they went to look at 'puters ! Yep, at 86, g'pa wants dad to teach him how to use a computer ! ! ! Exciting huh ?

Then last night mom brought me to Milonga and once again a great time was had by all ! Thanks Kiddo, Taz and Sam and the Scruffy Birds ! Oh, and Lizzie - gotta love those wings ! Have a great day - love Cookie

  Hi, Stormy
That's good it isn't too hot by you and cool at night. Really no fun when a hot day results in a too warm night and hard for hoomans to sleep.

Oh, Aunt Rose did your flock pics? She did some other flock pics (Falco's?) that are really nice too and wonderful that she could do those for you. (Our clothesline pic is her handiwork.)

So fun to see everybirdie at the Milonga. We didn't have any trouble with BC though know many others did, but at least it was mostly working.

  Hi, Stormy
Welcome back to BC though if you tried to get on Thu night it wasn't working. Very frustrating for us all as it still wasn't back Fri morning and mornings is when we send our blogs out.

Sounds like the family has been very busy indeed. Good to get things upgraded or maintained in the house.

We just got more hot weather (90s), but there is a breeze and it has been cooling at night so tolerable. Still, mom says it felt like an oven when she left work to come home yesterday.

Love all the new profile pics of you and the flock.

  Hi Stormy
mom was at the store today waiting for the cashier to ring up her order and a woman with 2 small girls was in front of her. the littles girl was whinning for some candy and the mom kept saying no so the little girl picked up a candy bar and bite into it through the wrapper and all and then placed it back with the other candy. the little girl then noticed mom was staring at her watching her bad behavior and gave mom this cutey pie smile. for one of the few times in moms life she kept her mouth shut and face expressionless as she stared down the little brat who then burst into tears and ran to her mommy. mom thinks she taught the little girl a lesson but isn't quite sure what. either don't do that again or to be more sneaky. mom is hoping for the first result. by the way don't ever buy the candy near the checkout counter at any store.

  Oh Stormy
tell your dear mom that we're so sorry for her loss . . .

After all the rain, yesterday late afternoon the sunshine finally returned ! And it cooled down too - in the high 50's overnight ! In time for dad to do a London broil on the grill - with corn on the cob ! ! YUMMY in my tummy !

Today mom has lots of errands to do - one of the window fans died :( Daddy likes the "white" noise they make - says it helps him sleep, mom just likes that it brings fresh air in. The a/c stays off unless absolutely necessary - like when mom's cooking.

Meanwhile, I worked on my heap till my Laura came and cleared just about everything out that mom brought home ! Then she played with me till my night-night time :)

Have a great Thursday :) love Cookie

  Hi Stormy
today when mom turned on the bathroom faucet the water was only trickling and all the other faucets in the house were working normally . mom was afraid of another broken pipe so dad called the plumber who for $85 unscrewed the filter from the faucet, cleaned it off and screwed it back on. it took him 5 minutes. no broken pipes and no leaks.

it then stopped raining so mom thought a good time to pull weeds while the ground is wet. outside she went and was working away and noticed the little bunny that lives in the yard was standing right beside her eating the weeds. mom said hello little bunny and he twitched his nose and continued eating. he was only about 2 feet from mom.
then a yellow jacket came out of nowhere and stung mom on the arm. mom screamed and the little bunny ran away. the bee got mom good because its 7 hours later and her arm is still stinging like crazy and all swollen up. its also been raining every since.

  Hi Stormy
DONT FORGET TO WATCH THE SUPERMOON TONIGHT!

The moon that rises tonight (Saturday) is what has come to be called a “supermoon” — because it’s both only hours from being perfectly full and hours from one of the year’s closest approaches to Earth. This combination makes the moon appear bigger and somewhat brighter than usual, even for a full moon. And because the moon always looks larger as it rises, moonrise Saturday night may show off a moon that appears about as big, bright and round as the moon can get. As the moon rises in the southeast at Saturday evening (at 8:30 or so on the East Coast) it will move west across the dark heavens through the night and early morning before setting in the southwest on Sunday morning.

  Hi Stormy
Did you know that it’s not against the law to slaughter dogs and cats for human consumption in Pennsylvania? While instances of this happening are rare, we know you’ll agree that there needs to be a law on the books to prosecute anyone who kills dogs and cats for food.

Thankfully, a bill to do just that is making its way through the General Assembly. H.B. 1750 was passed by the House unanimously in November, and then it went to the Senate Judiciary Committee, which made the bill even better for animals by adding language to ban live pigeon shoots—barbaric, unsporting events where dazed pigeons are launched from boxes to be shot as target practice or for prizes.then small children are sent out to retrieve the still living but injured pigeon and instructed to pull their heads off. The Senate is expected to vote on this amended bill in the next few days, and then it will go back to the House to approve the newly added pigeon shoot ban.

We’ve been fighting for years to ban pigeon shoots, and we now have a golden opportunity to get it done, but we must act immediately. Please help us put a stop to both of these forms of cruelty by urging your state senator and representative to vote YES on H.B. 1750.

Please visit the ASPCA Advocacy Center to quickly contact your state senator and representative in Harrisburg.

Thank you, Pennsylvania, for speaking up against horrific animal cruelty.

Yup, having too many treats in one day just doesn't work. Getting something new everyday is wonderful.

It was awesome for Panther to be our 20K vote, rising up from his hospital cage and all. So relieved he appears to be on the mend and hopefully he's back in his regular birdhouse soon.

Supposed to heat up around here in the next day or two. We hope it doesn't get too high here.

Well, it's Saturday and that means lock down while the parronts go to take care of all the yard work at the g'parronts. It's a nice day to be out working though, so I don't think they'll be too tired when they get home. I'll entertain myself with my toys and maybe take a nap so I'm ready ! I've also got the immense job of security . . . keeping an eye on all the wildlife out my back door !

mom worked all day outing the garden and was very tired and when she came in the house she tripped going down the steps and twisted her knee and can barley walk now.
HAPPY TGIF DAY
mom had bought Cori this dog toy that looks like two tires welded together with a jingly bell inside. in order to get Cori to stop licking her mom started shaking the toy and Cori grabbed it out of moms hand and started to violently shake it up and down and all around and then she just let go and it went flying across the room and knocked moms big glass of v8 splash over and the juice dripped all over me the bed the nightstand the lamp and the carpet. after mom hobbled around cleaning everything up it was nighty night time for us

it was a rainy day at our house today. mom didn't do much of anything. i do like to watch mom clean. i find it very entertaining for some reason. especially when mom drags out the step ladder and climbs clear up in the air to dust the beams. it always makes mom sneeze.

We had our hatchday on the 23rd and have been getting treats over the course of the week. Millet, ak mak, egg, green beans, a lot of our favorite things.

Panther gave us our 20K vote, very eggciting to reach that number.

Too bad that most dads and skinsibs just won't take our dictation, heehee.

Temps are hovering in the 70s-80s range so quite nice for summer. We usually have a nice breeze and not humid.

No more humpdays in this house till September ! ! Only Cookiedays :) Well, sort of - today mom's car has to go in for servicing - some silly recall thingy . . . so after she and daddy drop it off, she'll take g'pa's car for the day so she can run what she calls "errands" - hopefully they include FOOD ! I know she still has to write out some thank-you's to students too -

She and the niece were going to take Landon to the Bronx Zoo (Wed. are donation days) but the forecast doesn't look so good so maybe next week . . .

  Hi Stormy
now that summer is here many of us will be encountering (lightening bugs)fireflies in our yards and gardens.
fireflies receive a lot of attention when summer arrives. And there’s a lot more going on than many of us realize…Their remarkable green and yellow flashing lights have a hypnotic effect on people. Children in particular are drawn to fireflies. But the same throbbing glow that attracts youngsters often leads male fireflies to their deaths.In warm-weather months, especially where open meadows and forests coexist, the adult male fireflies of most species set out on mating flights in the evening hours. The females, meanwhile, await their mates in the foliage, blinking seductively. The task for each male is to find an unmated female of its own species.

It’s critical that the female be unmated because in many firefly species the females change through internal chemistry into man-eaters once they successfully mate. Thereafter they use their blinks to attract meals. Some females even imitate the idiosyncratic blinking patterns of other species in an effort to attract as many unsuspecting males as possible.

in pennsylvania a firefly festival will be held on june 28th in Kellettville to celebrate the 15 species of fireflies that live in the area. one rare species is the synchronous which all light at the same time.after the all day festivities tour guides will be taking groups into the old growth forests , after dark, to watch the light display that sparkles with the different varieties of fireflies lighting up the night sky. there are 1,000 different species of fireflies in the world.

Back to the mid 80s for us yesterday, but not bad with the nice breeze and none of that heavy humidity that makes it feel even warmer. Know that is tough to deal with for many and if a/c fails or one doesn't have a/c then even worse.

Well, the a/c is finally on this summer ! Yesterday was really the first day we needed it - and again today ! Luckily, the nights are still cool enough that once a room is cooled down, mom can turn it off and get through the rest of the night - mom turned it on in her classroom yesterday too !

Last night I had a really soaking bath - the kind that wets me and everything around me ! It felt good and then I had a great chat with dad ! Did you see the front BC article on us quakers ? FIVE reasons that we make good friends ? Jeepers, there must be a bazillion and five ! ! !!

,we have ben expecting some heavy rain for the last few days. lists of thunder and lightening but no rain. tonight you can see all the stars in the sky but the sky is lighting up with these brilliant flashes of light but no lightening streaks and no thunder and no rain. it has hit 90 the last few days and so this must be heat lightening.

  Hi, Stormy
Glad to hear your dad had a wonderful father's day. The parronts went out on Sat since mom works Sundays. They got him the commemorative glass from the restaurant as they do one every year. Dad has a lil collection now but did miss a couple of years, guess the parronts didn't go those times. Mom got dad a new bicycle helmet. He says it fits fine and tried it out already.

Yeah, cars are soooo eggspensive and they say it starts losing value the minute you take it home. Hopefully mom's car works for a few years to come without any other major issues.

As you all know, Tuesday's are my mom's humpdays, and today is the LAST one this year ! We are getting very excited about the summer vacation now that it's within days :) I even showed her how entertaining I can be last night by being silly and carrying my bell ball around and into my cage - this way she won't want to leave - she'll be afraid of what cleverness she may miss !

Daddy got his tire fixed so I guess I'll be on my own today :( At least they always leave the tv on Disney Jr. for me . . .

thanks for liking my picture

mom was working out side today and finally found what has ben eating her plants. she thought it was the bunnies or deer because they are all over the place but today a ground hog was happily munching on some of moms hosts. when it finally noticed mom it ran away. mom found its burrow which is on the very edge of the property and as long as it doesn't do much damage it will be allowed to stay.

  Hi Stormy
HAPPY FATHERS DAY
SOME GREAT BIRD DADS
Great Horned Owl
Great horned owl dads are the stereotypical breadwinners in their families. After finding the perfect home with their mates, male great horned owls take on the role of provider by hunting enough to feed himself and his mate, who is bigger than he is, before taking on the added responsibility of hunting for their young when they hatch.
Rhea
As members of a polygamous species, male rheas have a lot of partners, but when it comes to child-rearing these dads pull their weight and then some. Males can have up to a dozen or so female partners who all lay eggs in a nest he builds before they leave. Males then take on the role of incubating and guarding what can be more than 50 eggs for close to two months before taking on the role of a single parent after they hatch. Males have also been known to adopt orphaned chicks who have been separated from their brood.
Emperor Penguin
After females lay a single precious egg, Emperor penguin dads take over the responsibility of incubating it by balancing it precariously on their feet and keeping it warm under their feathers in the frigid Antarctic weather while mothers go off to feed. Dads can go for about two months without eating until the egg hatches, at which point he will feed it before mother’s return to give them a break from baby-duty.
Spotted Sandpiper
It doesn’t happen every time, but sandpipers have been found to reverse roles where female sandpipers establish and defend territory, while taking on multiple male partners. After luring a male to mate with and laying her eggs, she takes off to find another mate. Dad meanwhile stays to incubate the eggs and becomes the primary caregiver for the young for the first few weeks of their lives.

  Hi, Stormy
Hmmmm, heard that many birds are being squawked doing blogs at night, but we haven't had much problem in the mornings. Think we've seen one in the last couple weeks.

The car is back and was rather costly. In the lower 4 digits, yikes! Sure glad she'd saved a tiny bit so isn't that bad but sure can't save for our non eggistant rainy days. You and others have too much rain, we have none and just wish it would all even out and all areas would be in better shape.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Hi Stormy
i wanted yo wish you a Happy TGIF day and hope your Friday the 13th went off with out any bad things happening. mom went to the deli today and her ticket number was 13. her change at the gas station was $13. and her bill at the drug store was $13. Spooky huh?

the american redstarts that have their nest right by the front porch were quite angry yesterday when mom put me outside for a bit before the big rain storms hit. i guess he felt i was very threatening to is nest full of young uns .the male sat in the honeysuckle bush and screamed at me. i turned my back on him and took a bath.

love Boo Boo
