We met Sam at a Breeder's house.We were looking for a bird and she told us pick whatever one that would like. He was the smallest and had a very short tail at that time. Told the lady that is one and we brought him home..

Whatever you put in the cage for him to eat

His favorite spot is on the swing or at the Mirror.

Do not stick you finger in the cage because it makes be upset.

Mom gives me all kinds of treats everyday and talks to me whenever she passes the cage.

He needs to be where ever his brothers is. If his brother is drinking or eating, etc..

Make sure I am at the water dish or the food dish first after Mom fills them up..

  Hi Sam and flockiky,
Laka throws her wings around her friend and gives them big birdie hugs and says Happy Valentine's Day my sweet friend! ;). Laka gives all the flock members and parronts big birdie hugs too.

She says I want to say thank you for all the votes, love and support for me during my campaign run for BOTM. I appreciate all that you all do for me, then she gives everyone soft beaky kisses and says I love you all now and forever. ;)

I brought some Mac nut kisses to share but, I'm sorry it's not in the shape of a heart but love also comes from kisses too. :). Especially when it's a Hershey's kiss with Mac nuts in um. ;)

But it does come from my heart and I am truly very appreciative of all the love and support I have received. :)

Okay let's eat shall we? Laka dumps out all the individually wrapped Hershey's kisses on the table and everyone grabs one and starts opening the wrapper so carefully as to not break the tip of the Hershey's kiss. Laka likes to bite the tip off then plops the whole thing in her beak. Now she looks like a full cheek chipmunk. Hahahaha everyone laughs and has a good time.

She says even though the weather outside is bad we can have a little fun with some sweets, right? :). Everyone agrees with a full cheek of kisses.

Okay I must go and hit the campaign road and get back to campaigning.

Happy Valentine's Day my sweet friends! :)

I love you all and leave you with a Cupids arrow vote. :)

See you all tomorrow!

Leaving you all with warm birdie hugs and Hershey's kisses.

Love,

Laka Aolani, BOTM candidate

  Hi Sam
I'm glad you had a good day of fame!
♥Happy Valentine's Day!♥
Last night's bean and ham soup was a huge success, and mom made pumpkin cornbread (Trader Joe's box) to go with it. It was a great hearty winter meal, and Jeff was happy that mom used his dried beans in the soup.
We're in the deep freeze here today, it's not supposed to get into the double digits at all. Tomorrow will be a different story though, it's going into at least the 20s. Mom did a quick walk with the dogs again today, just around the block. It's a good think she's working at the museum today, doing 3 tours, otherwise she'd get no exercise at all. Mom is doing 2 mini tours on Bears, bears, bears, and a full featured tour in Dinosaurs in their time. She will love both topics, we think.
I hope you are getting a lot of attention, cuddles and scritches today. Stay warm (or cool, in CA), my friend. Hugs, Willie♥

  Hi Sam,
Thanks for the invite, you sure know how to throw a party. :)

Today the parronts was busy cleaning the garage and dad changed the carpet on the porch,.

Here's a new Hawaiian word for today Moe lepo (moi-le-po) meaning dirty stinky. The dust and dirt was all over as the vacuum cleaner or "jaws" as I call it spewed out of the side as he was vacuuming the carpet. I say ewwww!!!

Dad was so dirty and stinky that mom made him take a shower before they went to the store. Hahahaha parronts are so funny sometimes.

So moe lepo is the dirty word for today, I'll have a nicer one tomorrow for you guys. :)

Hope everyone had a great big warm birdie day!

Sending you all warm wing hugs and beaky kisses, and a vote also.

I thank you all for your love and support for my BOTM campaign run.

See you all tomorrow.

  Hi Sam
Oh we know just what your sweet loving Momma is going through with two BOTD's in one week,Mom went through that in December and January with three of us in one week and one in December.We all know just how hard it is to keep up with the regular blogs never mind the BOTD blogs!When your sweet Mom's fingers stop burning and falling off from all that typing she's doing for you two,we'll be right here waiting patiently,we love you all so very very much and you just don't know how much we love you all!
This morning was a frigid ice cold morning with the highs for the day of 24 the lows of minus 1 and right now its 0 and going down with a wind chill of -26.We had snow overnight and C Crew was up so my dad got to stay home.But he's up next.Mom and dad really overslept this morning and when Mom finally came downstairs to get us up we were really yelling at her for being so late!She cleaned our cages and Peepers and Celine made a big mess out of their cage with splintered wood from a toy they chewed up so it took Mom longer to get to the rest of us.We got our bean mix and just as Mom was going to get to Candida the doorbell rang and Candida wouldn't go in her cage to eat,she flew out into the dining room and Mom couldn't open the door(we have two front doors)one for the dining room that goes out into the mud room and the main front door that gets you into the house.Mom finally got her to stay on the play gym and let the plow guy in.She flew around him and he ducked.Mom had to chase her back to the play gym so the poor guy could get back outside!Then Mom spent the day cleaning out her china cabinet.There was a lot of stuff in there that got dumped for a better reason than to put it where it belonged,Mom threw out a lot of stuff too that wasn't needed anymore.Mom is hoping to get more cleaning done tomorrow but right now it doesn't seem like it as skin bro has other plans.Skin sis called Mom this morning and she sounds much better again,she was waiting to get her lunch and they were getting her up to walk.She was waiting for them to put wheels on her walker so it would make walking much more easier for her.Because of this bitter cold and all the warnings of not going out tomorrow if one doesn't have to because of health reasons and frost bite Mom will be staying inside.Three of us got to spend dinner time with Mom and dad,Celine got to stay on the playgym,Candida got to join dad in his pizza and her Candies jar,and Dixie got to stay in his travel cage on the table getting handouts.Other than that we're having a boring day but only too happy to be inside a nice warm house!Please give Aunt Janet and Uncle Bill a warm hug from my Parronts and Nana and we all send everyone and everybirdie warm wing hugs and Mom never forgets to put both Aunt Janet and Uncle Bill's names in the special intentions book at church each and every week for healing and peace from pain.
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beak

Phil is a lying rodent! You should never believe a rodent when it comes to the weather.
Happy Birthday to Charles Darwin and Abraham Lincoln today!
It's cold out there, but it's going to get colder still by Sunday. We think mom is crazy for going out in this weather, but she says it's okay as long as she bundles up.
This morning at the center, mom had the mammal nursery to do. There are only adults in there right now, 2 possums, 2 gray squirrels, and the little flying squirrel. The work wasn't too hard, and she got the floor and counter top well cleaned too. She usually wipes them off, but today she did more deep cleaning. Then she cleaned the refrigerator and freezer in the treatment room. It needed a thorough scrubbing before the craziness of baby season.
After the center, mom went to the post office, then to the supermarket to pick up some fresh fruits and veggies for us. We were nearly out today. There were no sugar snap peas, so we're going to have to settle for frozen peas until they come back. It's okay, we like them. She also got some French endive for the first time, we'll see how we like it.
It's fish fry Friday, so I think mom is going up to the church to get fish dinners for her and Jeff tonight. If it's too cold, though, she may just stay here.
I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches and staying warm (or cool if you're in CA). Hugs, Willie

at the kissing Piddy puts away all the decorated valentine boxes
and valentine decorations for now they are going to have a Mardi Gras celebration at the kissing booth andshe decides that she is going to bake a king cake " giant cinnamon roll" and place inside the cinnamon roll a candy "king/Queen" baby for their celebration tomorrow for mardi gras. which ever bird finds the candy baby will be King or Queen of their Mardi Gras. while she is baking Paddy Cake is standing on Ms BBs he'd and telling her which way to step nd watch out so she doesn't trip. Ms BB yells at Paddy and says i am not blind i just had a traumatic day being glued on the wall twice today. Paddy says lets makes some masks for Mardi Gras and gathers Ms BBs feathers which are all over the kissing booth to gLUE on the masks.. first i will paint your face and Paddy paints Ms BBs face purple with green stripes and spots of gold. purple represents justice, green is faith and gold is power. Ms BB works very diligently making her elaborate mardi gras mask. Paddy then fills bowls up with lots of beads and accidentally knocks one of the bowls off of the table and Ms BB gets up to show Paddy her mask she made and trips on all the beads rolling on the floor and lands face first in the king cake. WILL SHE FIND THE CANDY BABY AND BE QUEEN OF THE MARDI GRAS?. PIDDY IGNORES ALL THE COMMOTION AND GETS ALL HER BEAD NECKLACES READY TO HAND OUT TO ALL THE BIRDS for tomorrows Mardi Gras parade they will have and then a big feast of jambalaya, jumbo shrimp, pancakes, fonts and chocolates. she puts cajun music on the kissing booth stereo. tomorrow there will be fun activities after the parade and before the feast.every bird will get 5 necklaces. if they say the words "Fat Tuesday/Mardi Gras" they have to give up a necklace. the bird with the most necklaces at the end of the day wins the game and gets to take home lots of glass beads so they can make their own necklaces at home Piddy in the meantime is cooking her tail feathers off whir Paddy flys at her as fast as he can only veering at the last second. more to annoy her than anything else. she tells him to stop or she will put him in one of the cooking pots. in the meantime Cori and Boo Boo
start filling up purple, green and gold balloons with helium for the Mardi Gras celebration tomorrow and the kissing booth is filled with the floating balloons. it looks just like New Orleans now. Paddy & Piddy see the helium canister and notice there is plenty of helium left inside and they place their beaks over it and inhale deeply and pretty soon they sound very silly indeed.

  Hi Sam
This weekend bird enthusiasts from around the world will become citizen scientists for a few days during the 19th annual Great Backyard Bird Count, which is happening this year February 12-15.During this four-day event, which is organized by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, the National Audubon Society and Bird Studies Canada, people will be headed outdoors to count their local birds in the name of science.The goal of the count is to give scientists a better understanding of bird populations and distribution during the winter. The data collected can help them answer questions about how they’re being affected by factors like disease, development and climate change and how the timing of migrations may change over the years, in addition to offering insight about where conservation efforts need to be focused to protect species at risk.
The Great Backyard Bird Count first launched in 1998 and involvement has grown exponentially over the years. Last year more than 140,000 people from more than 100 countries participated, counting 18,726,079 individual birds from 5,090 different species. The total resulted in what organizers called “the most detailed four-day snapshot of global bird populations ever undertaken.”
This year organizers are encouraging more people to join. They believe the unusual weather patterns associated with El Niño may have a significant impact on birds being spotted.
“We’ve seen huge storms in western North America plus an unusually mild and snow-free winter in much of the Northeast,” said Audubon chief scientist Gary Langham. “And we’re seeing birds showing up in unusual places, such as a Great Kiskadee in South Dakota, as well as unseasonal records like Orchard Oriole and Chestnut-sided Warbler in the Northeast. We’re curious to see what other odd sightings might be recorded by volunteers during this year’s count.”
While organizers note odd sightings may be exciting, gathering data on common birds is just as important to see how they’re faring.
“Citizen-science projects like the Great Backyard Bird Count are springing up all over the world,“More and more, scientists are relying on observations from the public to help them gather data at a scale they could never achieve before. The GBBC is a great way to get your feet wet: you can count birds for as little as 15 minutes on one day or watch for many hours each day at multiple locations–you choose your level of involvement.”
Participating is easy, and free, and is open to people of all skill levels. Experts are being encouraged to help fledge newcomers and there are plenty of tools for those starting out to help identify local birds.

  Hi Sam
I like those too, but I pretty much like all toys.
We had more nuisance snow overnight. It's just a little, but enough to make walking the dogs a bit slippery this morning. Mom got through it, though, and swept and salted walk and driveway again. It's supposed to get REALLY cold this weekend, but no more snow is predicted. We'll see how that goes, haha.
At the end of the summer, mom told all her pool buddies that she would organize a lunch sometime over the winter. Yesterday she finally did just that. She texted, called, and emailed everyone with the details, and they are all meeting at a local restaurant for lunch on Feb. 23. She even arranged a snow date: if it's miserable on the 23rd, they will meet the following week, same time, same place.
Mom is going out to dinner tonight with her sis and brother in law. She is going to take a quick peek at their lunch menu because this is the restaurant she has chosen for the get together.
That's all the news that's fit to print. I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Stay warm (or cool, if you're in CA). Hugs, Willie

we haven't been on BC either because our dad is having a lot of health issues and as soon as he hears mom go to use the computer he needs her for something. mom then loses her traIN of thought, which isn't hard for her to do, while helping dad. tonight was better because he seems to be feeling better. it did get cold out. i think its 18 right now but at least we didn't get much snow.

HAPPY HUMPDAY

love Cori

HEY SAM. THATS GOOD YOU ONLY GOT 1/2 INCH OF SNOW. BUT THE COLD IS NOT GOOD EITHER. THAT BITING WIND IS THE WORST.

BEST TO STAY INSIDE AND KEEP WARM.

  Hi Sam
It's great to see you back. We knew Shelby would be okay, our Mini was blind for a few years, and she got along well, knew where everything was, and never missed a meal.
Maxine and Falco have been giving mom fits with their shredding lately. Falco likes phone books, and Maxine loves cardboard. Falco finished a phone book yesterday. Mom won't give her a whole one, unless it's the skinny local one, because she can't wait to get in there and shred. She just gives her 25 - 30 pages at a time. Maxine is shredding boxes, paper towel rolls, and anything else mom puts in there. Needless to say, it makes cage cleaning more of a challenge.
Yesterday we did sheets and towels, and not much else. We've been getting what the weather guy called snow globe snow. That means squalls followed by some calm, then more squalls. Mom got the driveway and walkway cleared this morning before walking the dogs, and we're hoping they stay clean. The snow is supposed to clear up today sometime.
Well, there's not much else new, so I'm just going to wish you a very good day, full of attention, cuddles, and scritches. Try not to get into too much trouble. Hugs, Willie
