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
same old same old going on. mom has been super tired these last few days and hasn't gotten much done other than helping Boo Boo with her campaign. we are still having cold weather. right now its raining and probably going to turn into snow. at least we haven't had one of those super warm ups where everything starts to bud and bloom and then a freeze kills it all. the crocuses come up when its not too cold out but only last a day. the weather forecaster keep saying we are in for a warmup. mom remembers lots of times when we get snow in April. lots of birds in the yard checking out the nesting boxes. a bad storm knocked one down and mom can't get it back up until the ground thaws.

love Cori

Mom got me a corn muffin and some almonds! I even got a new cool swing toy that mom hung in my house! At first I wasn't too happy about her removing my swing.. Hmmmm I couldn't figure out what she was up to! She promised me that she would put it back if I don't like this new wooden one with a bunch of wood toys attached to it. I'll have her put a picture of it in my album so you can see what it looks like!! Thank you again!!!

  Hi Sam
a fairly upscale town in Pittsburgh called Mt Lebanon had residents in an uproar over the huge deer populations. 50 percent didn't mind them and actually liked having them around and the other 50 percent wanted them gone and said they might attack people. the town hired a company to bait the deer and put them in a corral and slaughter them. they planned on doing this to 150 deer. people snuck into the corral and stole the bait food, soak towels full of deer repellent and threw in the corral and made lots of noise to scare the deer away. the company shot 5 deer. they want the homeless people to eat the deer. we have lots of coyotes living in our area and they are very good at keeping deer populations down. now people are afraid of the coyotes and want them removed. the problems all are stemming from dumb interfering people and if left alone nature takes care of everything except dumb people who you just can't get rid of. I still say kudos on the people who tried to save the other deer

HAPPY TGIF DAY

sorry i didn't get back to you yesterday. we lost our internet, cable tv and phone for about 2 hours. just when i was starting to blog. by the time it came back on it was after 1:30am and mom was too tired too blog at that point. even though its warmer now and around 44 mom feels very cold. she thinks she is coming down with a cold. dad is just getting over a nasty bronchial thing and mom hopes she isn't catching that. tomorrow they are talking about snow for the first day of spring. talk to you tomorrow.

Jules looks around wide-eyed. WOW! Did you see that? Ipo, Pimer and Oatie flying all over!! Whew! *Jules starts climbing the ladder he finds*Those guys know I don't fly that well....actually very little...and they start flying all over! Scares me so I end up on Sophie's cage and she tries to bite me so I fly to the floor and start letting mom know what's happening. She usually just calls for me to make sure I'm ok and then tells the others they're being snots. hehe Wait'll I come out with calling them snots. hahaha
We have had the most beautiful weather and the worst part is that mom is outside or gone all the time. Either way we aren't allowed out of our cages because she can't keep an eye on us. She is going to fix up a room for us all to play in. She's just got to spring clean she says.
Hoping you're having good weather now. It's been way to long a winter for so many.
Better see how the trip home will be with those guys teasing each other. See you later.

NO MORE SNOW!!!
Today at the center mom cleaned the recovery room. There were some ducks, a hawk, and some turtles in there, so it was the usual variety. She gave the room an extra helping of cleaning, though. This afternoon there will be a big event at the center. They got a grant to get solar panels installed! The solar people will be there at 2, and it will be a media event. Mom is thinking of going back up to see it, but may not. It depends on whether our blogs are done or not.
One or more of the local TV stations will probably cover it, so she can see it later.
I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches, and getting ready for spring in just 4 days! Hugs, Peppino

Happy Pi day and Happy Birthday to Albert Einstein! Did you know this pi day is special? The date, 3.14 is only the start. The next numbers in the series are 15926, so at 9:26 we should all yell happy pi day! 3.1415926
Mom had a meeting at the center this morning and they gave out some numbers: they took in 2974 animals last year. The release rate was ~62%, which is about double the national average. Volunteers clocked in 13,500 hours, which is equivalent to 6 full time and one part time staff worker. Mom also shared the Biscuits Bingo numbers. They made $1227 at their table, and they got $1272 from the gate. Not bad for a day's work.
Guess what the snack was at the end of the meeting? That's right, pie!
We should have mom here with us the rest of the day, it's pretty gloomy looking outside, even though it's in the high 40s. I hope you are getting lots of cuddles and scritches today, as well as some good quality mom/dad time! Hugs, Peppino

tonight Paddy the bad budgie was trying to teach his mate Piddy how to hop but she never got the hang of it and would lift one leg up and then hop so it looked more like she was skipping. it was a hoot to see.

we think spring might be pretty close. today we saw a chipmunk running around outside on top of the snow which is slowly melting day by day.

  Hi Sam
Well, mom didn't say anything about the bingo except that she was tired. Their table made over $1200! Mom doesn't know what they got from the gate yet, but that was a good day of work. Yesterday's tours at the museum was fun, there was the cutest little 4 year old on her first tour who had a ton of questions. That always makes the tour interesting.
Today mom called off at the wildlife center to go to the emergency room. Her ankle woke her up several times during the night, so she thought it was a good idea to get it checked out. It turns out that it is osteoarthritis, which mom suspected anyway. They wrapped it up with an Ace bandage, told her to take Tylenol for the pain, and sent her home with a referral to an orthopedic group. So, after she gets done with our blogs, she will put up her feet, call the orthopedic guy, and put ice on it.
Hope you are having a good day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. It feels like spring here! Temps in the 40s and sunny today! Hugs, Peppino

it warmed up to 43 degrees today. all the snow is slowly melting. our bad budgie is still going after Boo Boo who seems to like it at this point. the budgie has now stopped walking and hops just like Boo Boo. he also has learned to do the jump straight up in the air spiral flutter fly that Boo Boos does. Boo Boo is not impressed. its more fun watching their antics than playing with my toys or watching tv.

Forties are a good start!!! We're in the 50s so we're doing good too. Sure makes us feel good when it feels as good as it looks. Mom even opens to the screen door so we can get some fresh air. Now if it were just safe enough to put us outside. Mom says not because it isn't quite warm enough for us inside birds so will have to settle for watching the wild ones.
We been driving mom crazy....well, the girls have. All those whistles and squawks. Pimer and I have been good. I whistle and stuff but because I'm happy. Mom smiles at my sounds because it doesn't hurt her head. HA! Mom's working on letting us boys have the big white cage, but wants to see if we can escape first. hahaha we'll wait and show her after she's sure she's fixed all the big openings.

We are all sorry we didn't get to talk to you yesterday. Mom worked at Biscuits Bingo yesterday, so she was gone from 9 in the morning till well after 4 in the afternoon. When she finally got home, she was tired and needed to pay attention to us and the dogs. After dinner, she decided to relax and finish a book. Anyway, here we are today, before mom goes to work at the museum. She has tours today in dinosaur hall. I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches.

our doggies tumor on her foot is now bleeding. we think doggie is licking it and causing it. dad won't put the cone on her because it makes her choke and not just a little bit but she chokes on and on until you take it off. mom told dad to put the doggie tube socks on doggie to keep her from licking the tumor but dad made mom wash them first because they are made in China and there is a fear that the dye in the socks would make our doggie worse. mom washed them twice in boiling water and detergent and then she just kept rinsing them until the water ran clear. actually there was quite a lot of dye in the socks.

we got about 6 inches of snow and last night the temps went below zero. today it warmed up to 22 and will only go down to 14 tonight. we are doing ok and glad the furnace is working ok. we were told it needed replaced by our furnace service company and are praying it will last until it starts to warm up a little bit since a replacement will cost around $15.000 for a brink man.

HAPPY TGIF DAY

  Hi Sam
Winter is nearly over, keep up your spirits. Only 14 more days to spring, and this weekend we go to DST again, so days will be a bit brighter.
Mom was at the very cold center this morning. She did the bunny room and the main aviary. The bunny room only had one bunny, so that was pretty easy, and there was a space heater in there, so it was warm. The main aviary is currently housing 11 pigeons in the large area, and 5 doves in a wooden flight cage. The pigeons are all indoors, as are the doves, with the outer door closed. Mom was grateful for that, because it meant she only had to clean the indoor part of the aviary. There are lots of things to do there when the animals are finished. Laundry had piled up a bit, so mom pitched in with that.
Tomorrow we may not be online at all. Mom is working the Biscuits Bingo, and will be gone pretty much all day long. If they let her leave early, say 2ish, we will do our blogs, but otherwise, we'll be back on Sunday. Mom is working at the museum Sunday, but there should be time for blogging before she goes.
I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

the budgies are still being very bad. Paddy has now gotten Piddy to follow him to see Boo Boo on the floor.Piddy has no interest in Boo Boo which is just as well and Paddy keeps himself in the middle between Boo Boo and Piddy. Piddy is very impressed with the crystal water dish and is spending most of her time playing in the water which is good since her face is covered with the harrison pellet crumbs.

this weather is unbelievable. you can't even drive on the roads now. its been snowing at our house all day. at least its not bitterly cold, just cold.

This weather is so nasty! We are so done with winter, wish it were done with us, too.
Well, mom was supposed to go to a meeting at the museum today, but with the horrid weather conditions, she opted to stay at home. It was rain changing to snow when she got up this morning, and the temps have been falling since then. When she walked the dogs (at 10!) the salt truck was going up the street, so it's slippery. We don't have sidewalks in our plan, so mom walks on the street and was glad to see the truck. If mom goes out at all today, it will be to Mystery Lovers Book store to pick up some books she ordered last week, and to the supermarket to buy more grapes and berries for us.
I hope you are having a nicer day, less yuck on the ground, more warm in the sky. Get lots of scritches and cuddles today and stay warm. Hugs, Peppino

it was a nightmare at our house last night. mom was dragging the garbage cans and recyclable bin up the icy snow packed driveway and she kept hearing this Zzzzzing sound and finally realized it was the electrical wire leading from the house to the street. mom told dad who called the electric company, the cable company , the police and the fire department since we didn't have a clue what was happening. they all showed up at once. at first they said it was just the ice and snow on the lines but just to be safe theychanged the transformer cover and cable and the Zzzzzing sound went away. while they did this the power was shut off to the house. we really didn't need any lights because all the trucks and equipment made it seem like daylight outside. at least it is fixed now.

Jules offers a cuppa and a cookie. You sure do have lots of snow. Hope the shuttle is out of the way. Those poor deer. Mom doesn't have to worry about feeding them out our way. It's been such a mild winter that they've been able to feed easily. And even with snow, there's enough around here in town that has hay. yeah, it's good to live in a small farming town. Mom's been feeding the outside birds all our old foods. She hasn't had to add to it much this year. We were just looking outside and we got chickadees, junko, dove and starlings. Not to bad for the small amount she tosses out.
We woke up to about 2" of snow that got to about 4" but it's so warm that it keeps melting to and inch or so. We'll take all we can get at this stage. Haven't been able to see the mountain for a couple of days so hoping it's getting lots and lots of snow.
I better fly and see what I can get into. hehehe

Yesterday mom did call off at the museum, as the weather was horrid. It snowed most of the morning and into the afternoon, then it changed to rain and froze. The good news is that Josh came and shoveled, then salted. That didn't keep it from freezing overnight, though, so mom had to salt the front walk and the driveway before she could walk the dogs and leave.
Mom did her taxes yesterday, and with the refund, she may buy a new stove. At least that's what she's thinking right now.
Today mom worked at the very cold wildlife center. They have set up space heaters, but the building is so big with high ceilings, they didn't help much. Mom cleaned up after the gull in the small flight aviary (no heater in there), then she worked in the recovery room (again, no heater in there). She was pretty cold when she got done with the animals, so she asked if it was okay to leave. They said yes, of course! Now she's working on warming up.
I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches, and staying warm. Spring in 18 days! Hugs, Peppino

back in the fall mom found a small sparrow that had somehow gotten its leg tanged in a bird house filled with our doggies hair mom clips every spring for the birds making nests. there was another sparrow tangled in it also and mom thinks it was trying to help the other one that was dangling by its leg. mom had a heck of a time getting the sparrows leg out and felt the sparrow probably broke it by struggling so much. once she untangled the one sparrows leg the other sparrow became free also and they both quickly flew away before mom could check for any broken legs. today dad had the doggie outside to do her business and called for mom to come out because there was a little bird sitting on the driveway. somehow mom recognized this sparrow as the one dangling by its leg months ago from the bird house. it sat there for a few minutes and looked at mom and then it hobbled away and then flew to a nearby tree. mom knows its leg has never healed but at least it looked in good shape considering its bad leg.

my fister Boo Boo, the rare blue bali mynah will be running for BOTM starting tomorrow and would greatly appreciate your votes

the nurse was a young woman and was very nice. it seems to be the new policy of a lot of health insurers to come and visit the homes when the people start using medicare. we had just gotten this new health insurers because our old health insurance was charging an extra $3000 a year for dad who just went on medicare. this doesn't make any sense but they explained they were not equipped to handle medicare. we had been with united healthcare for over 35 years. all the nurse did was ask the same questions that you would answer if you were filling out forms in a new doctors office. Cori was intimidated by her and was very quiet, the budgies just stared at her and Boo Boo wouldn't shut up. the nurse wasn't interested in any of us but Boo Boo was making so much racket the nurse finally looked up and said what kind o bird is that and dad quickly replied Boo Boo was a rare Bali Blue Mynah and the nurse accepted that and went on with her dumb questions like do you visit the dentist, have your eyes examined, etc. i was a waste of time and she reeked of fabric softener. she would have left much sooner but dad kept talking on and on and even the nurse finally said ok i m leaving now.

survived the day. first i had my nails done. i screamed after each toenail was clipped. mom then used a emery board to smooth the edges. i really wanted to bite mom for that. then when i thought it was all over mom decided to trim my beak a little. how much worse can the day get i thought. after mom put me back in my cage i sat there and pouted. mom felt sorry for me and decided to bring me out to calm me down. i lunged at her and wouldn't come out of my cage. by this evening i had forgiven mom for the awful day she put me through and came out for my playtime. i wasn't very active but at least i got some cuddles and head scratches from mom.

  Hi Sam
Has your mom contacted the raptor place again? Just curious...
We were surprised to see Divo as Angel of the Day today. Thanks for remembering him.
Mom was at the center this morning as usual, and had the RVS room to clean. There was only one groundhog in there today, as well as that mean raccoon, and 5 bats. The good news about the bats is they are all in one terrarium. That's also the bad news! It's hard to keep track of who's been fed, and the white out was nowhere to be found. They all ate, mom thinks. They are so cute when they drink, too. Mom gives them water in a 1cc oral syringe, and their little tongues just lap it up from the tip of the syringe.
After the center she went to the supermarket to get us fresh veggies and to get herself some juice. Tomorrow she has raptor class at the center, it will be on medical handling for raptors, we think. They might redo the mammal handling class, which is great, since mom missed it. She also told them already that she would miss next week's raptor class because that's the day she helps out at Biscuits Bingo. Hopefully they will do something to make sure mom qualifies for raptor handling, since she's been doing it for 13 years.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of warm cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

  Hi Sam
Jules joins him on his cage. We've been having so much fun watching the outside birds. Especially after mom tosses our old food out to them. We have a nice flock of Junko and of course, dove. Sparrow and a few chickadee. It's good to see so many and we haven't seen the cats around either. Not that mom doesn't like cats, but she keeps telling them she's not feeding the birds for an all you can eat buffet. hahaha
Mom moved Sophie's old cage to one side of the room and says that after Sophie realizes it's not her cage any longer that I get it. Maybe Pimer and I can get along, but we did tell her not to get her hopes up. haha
Better fly for now

  Hi Sam
We got our Bird Talk with points, and it came the other day. Mom is so far just looking at it, but I think she'll love the conure article, hahaha.
At the wildlife center there was some bad news today. The center lost Cy, one of the education owls. The little grey phase screech owl was brought to us a few years ago after having fallen (or been pushed) from his nest. He had some neurological problems and was missing an eye, so he couldn't be released. He became one of our dear education animals. Lately though, he's been having more seizures and they've been getting worse, so the decision was made to put him down to save him further suffering. It's always sad when they decide to euthanize an animal there, but one with a name whom everyone has worked with is almost unbearably sad. Mom cried this morning when she read the email, and is still kind of dripping. Cy is okay now, we know, and is whole and healthy once again. Fly free, little Cyclops, we'll all miss you.
I hope you are having a wonderful day, full of cuddles and scritches (and warmth). Hugs, Peppino

  Hi Sam
the visiting nurse is coming tomorrow so mom was doing some cleaning today. don't forget mom was laid up with a bad back for about 4 weeks so there wasnt much cleaning done in that time period. moms back is about 90 percent better but if she overdoes it or moves in the wrong way it hurts.

we are only allowing the nurse in the dining room which is part of the kitchen and living room but she must sit at the dining room table right next to me and i will entertain her with how loud i can yell. hopeful she won't stay long.

love Cori

  Hi Sam
Good to hear you had a nice day. But, I don't think it's over yet! Well, not for us anyway.
Jess got her cast on today and will have to get another in 3 weeks. The pain isn't as bad as on Sunday.
Another winter weather advisory until Tuesday night! We are having more snow and cold ...temp is minus 18. Well, I had to stock up on my hot chocolate mix! This is getting so old ... where is the spring weather?
Hugs

  Hi Sam
Willie and I hung out at the buffet table most of the night at the milonga. We loved all the food Lizzie put out! It was a fun night for the dancers, too. It was so good that Chyna pulled out that karaoke machine and sang.
Our weather is clear but cold today. It's great to see the sun, even if the air is cold.
This morning mom cleaned the recovery room. It was interesting, because of the variety of animals in there. There were 3 snapping turtles, 2 box turtles, a canvasback duck, a Canada goose, a barred owl, a Cooper's hawk, and a broad winged hawk. It was one of those days where the room was short of supplies, so mom had to gather newspaper, paper towels, daily care sheets for some of the charts, and make fresh disinfectant spray for the cages. The Coopers hawk got loose, and mom had to move a bank of cages to get it to fly to where she could net it. Always an adventure there! After the center mom picked up Lena and they went to the Smiling Banana Leaf for lunch. It's a Thai restaurant near where Lena lives. It was quite tasty, too. Then mom picked up a few things at the Giant Eagle, including her prescriptions, and went to the bookstore to order some new reading material.
Now she's back and ours for the day! Once she finishes our blogs and showers, that is. I hope you are having a great day, staying warm and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

  Hi Sam
Thanks for liking my pic ... it's not a real new one ... it was my NYE pic.
This wasn't a good day. My skinsis fell and broke her wrist. She is doing pretty good but is in pain.
We still are getting wind chill alerts. This is getting old! Where is spring weather????
Hugs

  Hi Sam
I love that pic with all the hearts. It's been so cold here that mom has tried to stay home as much as possible. She did teach a docent class on Tuesday, she did the animal adaptations part of the class, while a fellow docent did the plants and climate change. Her shifts at the wildlife center take her out of the house too, but that's fairly close to where we live, so it's not hard to do. Tomorrow she is working at the museum again, so she's hoping the snow from today clears up. We are supposed to get 4 to 8 inches, yucky! Hope all is well with you and that we'll see you at the milonga tonight. Hugs, Peppino

  Hi Sam
we are getting ready for a heat wave. we are getting temps of 34 tomorrow. the weather forecaster are saying Pittsburgh may or may not get hit with a super snowstorm. the grocery store was packed.

the doggie is now using her her healed broken leg


not sure why the new health insurance wants to come to the house but they said this is their new policy. it sounds like they want to check the house out and make sure the parents can care for themselves and eat nutritional meals. it seems like they think the parents might be idiots.


HAPPY TGIF DAY

love Cori
