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
Boo Boo and I got to go outside today for the first time this year.Boo Boo got to sit on the porch for about 45 minutes.. Dad sat there with her for about 1/2 until mom brought me out in my harness and then dad went inside. even though it was Boo Boos old cage it scared her at first but she adjusted very quickly and even took 2 baths. usually i am not that interested but since this was the first time for the year i was quite excited and very interested in watching all the birds flying around in the yard. since dad went inside he decided to wash a frying pan mom had soaking in the sink. suddenly we all heard this yelling because dad had dropped the frying pan on his foot and smashed his already broken toes so mom had to cut short my outside time today but 15 minutes is better than none at all and i am looking forward to the next time i get to go out.

  Hi Sam
the nursery delivered the bottle brush shrub today . dad spent all day Saturday and this morning digging the hole. he had to use a pick ax and a root loper. it would have taken mom a week to dig the hole. after dad put the shrub in the ground he spent the rest of the afternoon mixing the soil with social mulch and peat moss and carefully tamping it into the ground. the shrub doesn't look like much now but eventually will.

  Hi Sam
for some reason mom was feeling a false sense of security from the marauding deer. they came by last night and browsed on every new plant mom planted. they didn't touch anything else. they even ate the flowers off of the geraniums which they have never touched before. it is kind of funny since none of the neighbors ever plant anything so the deer don't even bother going into their property. our house is like a smorgasbord of gourmet delights for them.

  HI SAM
mom and dad have been traveling now for 2 days to various garden centers to find a shrub to replace the blue spruce pine tree dad had cut down last fall. they went to a place about 25 miles south of the city and found a beautiful nursey that had beautiful plants and had perfect shrubs for mom and dad. problem was dad isn't able to dig a hold big enough for some of the big root balls and can't afford to have the nursey deliver and plant so the parents settled for a bottle brush buckeye shrub that is about 3 feet tall but should grow to about 15 feet which is "deer resistant", tolerates shade and wind and grows big fluffily white plumes. while mom was out with dad today the bank called and said moms power of attorney for g-ma has been approved so mom has to go to the bank tomorrow to sign papers so she can open a new checking account for g-ma and start paying her bills and keep track of what the money is being spent on.

HAPPY TGIF DAY

its still pretty cool here but is suppose to start warming up. mom was going to clean the house today but when she opened her box of swifter refills she had bought the wrong ones and these had strong scents on them so mom had to throw them away and run to the store to buy the unscented ones. since she was out she stopped off at the garden center.. prices have skyrocketed on plants but if you don't buy them now they won't be around for later. its a lot of money to spend for deer candy

our weather has been pretty cool and one morning last week we even had snow flurries. today wasn't too bad and warmed up to the mid 60's. we are getting lots of rain which is good for everything growing. haven't seen much deer activity around and hope we don't get baby fawns born in our garden again. they are super cute but learn to eat all the plants and flowers.

i was sneezing like crazy yesterday evening. i also kept yawning so mom assumed my Eustachian tubes were clogged. she also could hear congestion when i breathed. mom didn't panic because this is pretty much how mom feels everyday and is starting to suspect i might have allergies also. my nares were also bright red and mom used a tissue to wis them off every time i sneezed. what mom did was wipe my whole face and nares down with apple cider vinegar. then she applied aloe vera juice from a freshly squeezed aploe vera plant and rubbed it very well into my nares and face. she then massaged my ears which also cause me to yawn. then mom put me to bed early and figured i needed a good night sleep. today I sneezed a few times and tonight none at all although i did start yawning again but only for a little bit. mom had on clean blue jeans tonight and was wondering if maybe there had been something on the dirty ones that i was having a reaction to last night. the dirty ones got filthy today and crusted with mud because mom worked on the 3rd hillside cleaning out the leaves and she is 3/4 done.

hope everybirdy had a happy mothers day yesterday. the painter came yesterday and finished at 7pm. mom went to visit her mom at the nursing home and when she got home mom worked outside while he painted and got all of her shrubs planted but one. dad bought mom a beautiful bouquet of roses and then they went out to eat at a local italian restaurant. by last night mom was completely exhausted. today mom worked on cleaning up the front porch from the painter and cleaned the front porch furniture so once again she is very tired tonight.

  Hi Sam
mom used to skin her shins all the time when she was a kid roller skating with the skates that fit on your shoe with a key, riding her bike and falling off and playing with her brothers. she never remembers a skin shin that hurt so much. she finally took off the bandage today and that made it feel better. dad told mom that if she can just pull all the leaves down on the 3rd hillside of the house he will have the lawn service come and suck them up and that is a big relief to mom. if only that darn shin would start healing.

the painter who is painting the house came yesterday at 1pm to start and left t 3pm. today he came at 1pm and left at 3pm. his work is meticulous but he works extremely slow and since he works only a few hours at a time at this rate he will be painting the house all summer. mom has 5 bushes (2 mountain laurel & 3 yellow twig dogwood) she wants to plant around the foundation but is afraid to plant them until he is done and by that time it might be too late to plant them. he told mom he was checking her outdoor bird houses and found some of them filled with wasp nests so he took them out so the birds will come and use them so he is a good guy but can't expect him not to smash her shrubs with his ladder. we had to replace the wood in several sections of the house because it was rotted a few years ago when we had the flooding inside the house and it was determined that water was draining off of the roof and running down the side of the house. well the guy who did that did a half ass job and it all has to be replaced. now that the big blue spruce pine tree has been cut down we see that the wood has rotted because the tree was too close to the house. dad wants to buy a big shrub to replace that. anyway the painter is doing the wood replacement also. today he lost his pack of cigarettes and spent about 1/2 hour hunting for them but never found them. so he painted for 1-1/2 hours.

mom has not been feeling well at all. instead of resting up and feeling better she was feeling worse and worse but continued to try and get things done. these last few days it was agony just sitting. her back and side hurt and her leg was throbbing. yesterday she didn't do much of anything and last night she felt even worse so finally went to bed early. today she is feeling better. she changed the bandages on her leg and saw it wasn't healing at all but its not infected. after cleaning it up and a[plying new bandages it feels better now. the painter is at the house and has found lots of wood that is rotted and needs to be replaced. maybe thats why we have so many ants.

moms eye is feeling better and just a little itchy . her side really hurts but that should go away. mom waited for dad, at the eye doctors, for 3 hours. she finished a book and then dad came out and said the doctor said his eye was much better and dad was very relieved. it was good mom was forced to sit there since she couldn't get into anymore accidents while reading. mom came home and then slept and slept some more and is feeling more rested. today she bought 3 yellow twig dogwoods to plant. they re good for -40F and don't require much sun.

Bad Paddy Cake was at it again and landed on top of the curtains in the bedroom and took off with the silk poop protector mom made to cover the curtains. its about 12 feet long and when i saw that thing dropping down to the carpet I panicked and ran into my cat carrier for safety and wouldn't come out until mom had it draped over the top of the curtains again.

Boo Boo saw it falling first and had already hoped to the other end of the bedroom before i even knew what was happening.

mom limped down and picked up the last bag of leaves on hillside 2. then she had to buy a sheppards hook because when dad cut down the blue spruce last fall mom had moved a birdhouse from it to where she always hangs the hummingbird feeder. birds have made a nest in the bird house so mom had to hang the hummingbird feeder in new spot. after getting it in the ground and then getting the hummingbird feeder hung up a branch from the shrub smacked mom in the eye. mom didn't pay much attention at the time but now it is seeping and itchy and quite sickening. mom is loading both eyes up with eye drops and hopes it will feel better tomorrow.tomorrow she has to drive dad to have more intensive testing done on his eyeballs and he won't be able to see afterwards and its 35 mies away.

Sorry for the long lag in blogs...have been busy here with the additional 2 tiels and an amazon in the guest room. Mom annoys me because she will not allow Gracie and Sunny out to fly with me. They have never been free fliers and I can teach them really quickly. I suppose she is right. too many big beaks in this flock and she does not embrace the idea of 3 tiels at large (odd numbers of birds cause aggression, etc) And mom says I am way too assertive as is, hehheeh. We have a frost warning tonight so all of the plants outside on the deck have to come into our room and the parronts have to cover the veggies they planted last week. Hop you are having a greyt week!

  Hi Sam
the lawn care service has come by and sucked up all the leaves about 4times now. it costs a fortune. the leaves mom is picking up now are from the one neighbor who blows his leaves onto side one of the property and the leaves on side 2 are from the neighbor who never picks his leaves up and they all blow onto the side of the property. the leaves on side 3 must be picked up by mom because they are all packed under all the forsythia shrubs on the hillside and will kill them if not taken out. thats the dirty job where mom has to lay on the hill side and pull all the leaves out and then push them to the bottom of the hill and then pick them up. blowing them just packs it tighter.

well mom over did it again. today she started on the 2nd hillside. she got 7 50lbs bag full of leaves. that wasn't the hard part. it was dragging the leaves up the hill that did her in. she slipped and ripped open her shin on a rock. she was so exhausted from dragging the leaves up the hillside she never finished the last bag. the blood on her shin dried and her stuck her jeans to her leg. the good news is their was no tear on her jeans. she was so exhausted she didn't even wash up afterwards. she just got dad his dinner and watched tv all night. i soent the evening pulling all the sticks and leaves out of moms hair. it was a dirty job but somebody had to help her.

today was earth day and here are some memorable quotes to celebrate it.

"Here is your country. Cherish these natural wonders, cherish the natural resources, cherish the history and romance as a sacred heritage, for your children and your children’s children. Do not let selfish men or greedy interests skin your country of its beauty, its riches or its romance."— Theodore Roosevelt

"You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make."— Jane Goodall

"Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together … all things connect."— Chief Seattle

"It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement; the greatest source of visual beauty; the greatest source of intellectual interest. It is the greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living."— DavidAttenborough

"The environment is where we all meet; where all have a mutual interest; it is the one thing all of us share."— Lady Bird Johnson

  Hi Sam
glad your back. tell your dad the older we get the more things that can go wrong and usually do. it is not a sign of weakness to need treatments, medications & procedures. years ago people didn't treat and dropped dead. even the there is no guarantee but at least they might make you feel better

  Hi Sam
miss you lots

mom was outside working today trying to get the yard cleaned up. it was a beautiful sunny 76 outside. while dad was in the back blowing leaves into a pile for mom to put in bags, mom decided to get the fountain cleaned out. she started pulling all the leaves out of it and found a dead bird inside. it had no head or body just it wings. from the color of the wings it appeared to be a female cardinal. at first mom thought it might have hit a window and crawled into the fountain for safety but if that happened then where did its head go? mom now thinking maybe a cat killed it, ate the head and body and buried the wings under the leaves in the fountain. all the feathers on the wings were still attached and didn't looked broken or anything. maybe it did crawl int the fountain and died and then the head and body were eaten by bugs and critters. very sad and strange.

  HI SAM
HAPPY HUMPDAY
!we sure have missed talking to everybody. we apologize for not being on bird channel for all these days. moms just been a little over whelmed with things and doesn't want to bore everyone with the details. mom took dad to the hospital at 4am tuesday morning for his heart catherization. he was prepared to stay in the hospital because the doc felt he should have more stents put in his heart. it dropped down to 20 degrees that morning with 2 inches of snow. you woulnt believe all the car accidents on the road because since its been warm and then got cold all the snow turned to solid ice. mom dropped dad off and came home to feed the cats and birds. she couldn't drive any faster than 5 mies an hour because she kept sliding but she preserved and made it home ed everyone and then wired for the hospital to call. they clued and said to come and pick dad up because he didn't need anything done and by the time she went bak to the hospital all the snow and ice had melted but joe biden was in town so there was a huge traffic jam and the main road was closed because of bridge work. dad will then have lots of tests done on his head and eyes to determine what needs to be done. then since mom is power of attorney over g-ma there are quite a few problems and g-mss investment company UBS told mom if something isn't done with g-mss money she will be broke in 2 years. g-m wrote a check in one month for $34,000 and no one knows why so mom needs to keep a copy of g-ms will and power o attorney and start investigating what is happening to g-ma's money and who is writing the checks. UBS charges $6000 a year just to invest g-ma's money and g-ma is steadily losing money with them every year then g-ma is writing a check to some church for $1000./mo and she doesn't have the money. mom is also going to the assisted living facility and getting a itemized statement on everything they are billing g-ma for since supposedly everything was already paid for in one lump sum when g-ma moved in there.

  Hi Sam
well mom once again put me on milk thistle supplements to try and help with my feather color problem. last time she tried it the milk thistle made me sneeze after about 3 days so mom stopped it. she started me on it again around February 20 and managed to keep me on it until today. the last few days i have been sneezing like crazy and my nares are bright red and snot is dripping out of my nares. i like to wipe the snot off in moms hair because it is very absorbent. anyway i am eating well and screaming loud and flying around and shredding my egg cartons and other than my bright red nares my eyes look clear and my poop is perfect. mom stopped the milk thistle today and if the sneezing continues tomorrow i will go to the vet. mom has never herd of a bird having a allergic reaction to milk thistle and wonders if maybe the milk thistle is allowing my sinuses to drain. of course no one has the answer.

hope you had a wonderful day.

  hi Sam
In response to Alaska’s massive common murre die-off in January 2016, John Piatt, a research wildlife biologist at the U.S. Geological Survey’s Alaska Science Center, said he didn’t know what the future held in store for common murres. Sadly, this seabird die-off saga has just taken a plot twist for the worst: Another 6,000 to 8,000 common murres were recently discovered in another massive Alaskan die-off — in the most peculiar location.In the beginning of 2016 an estimated 8,000 emaciated (dead and alive) common murres washed ashore a beach in Whittier, Alaska.It looked like many of the birds had starved to death, but why couldn’t they find food to nourish themselves? It’s not an easy answer, but the two leading theories at the time were:
1. “Warmer water surface temperatures, possibly due to global warming or the El Nino weather pattern’” could be impacting the murre’s prey fish. Once the temperature goes beyond a certain point, many fish will move on or die.
2. Harsh winter storms that made hunting more difficult for the birds.

in the Most Recent Die-offt he seabirds didn’t wash ashore on a beach like they did before. This time, the thousands of dead birds were found over 12 miles on a freshwater lake (Lake Iliamna) — even though the birds prefer the ocean during the winter.it is believed that the murres couldn’t find food in the Pacific Ocean and flew to Lake Iliamna to eat salmon smolt. its unusual that the lake itself wasn’t frozen.
Seabirds, like common murres, are barometers that scientists use to gauge the health of marine ecosystems.

John Piatt agrees that something’s not right, “We’ve talked about unprecedented things about this die off. To have 6,000, 8,000 birds in the lake is pretty mind-blowing, really. I’ve never heard of any such a thing anywhere in the world.”
The latest death toll between the die-off events and independent cases is 36,000. Let that sink in: 36,000 dead common murres !While researchers continue to try to solve this common murre die-off crisis, they continue to be thrown for a loop, “We don’t even know what we don’t know,” Piatt says.

  Hi Sam
i guess i m a little hormonal now. mom sat down with her coffee to read the pper and i was sitting on my cage preening. after a little while i flew over to mom. mom wasn't concerned because i fly over to her every morning and sit in her hair and then try to get coffee. today i bypassed moms hair and latched on to her earlobe. mom screamed because she said it hurt and tried to knock me off with a paper towel roll. finally i let go. mom is grateful i didn't crush the cartilage like i have in the past. mom pt me back in my cage and locked the door.

I finally got mom to blog for me! She has been in a real tumult with work and is just waiting for things to go really flat so she can retire and we can have her here full time! How are your parronts doing? Mom says that Dr Stas is very good for thyroid issues. How is mom doing? We certainly pray that she is having more good days than bad. Love and winghugs, Moggie

  Hi Sam
i had my nails clipped today by mom. i was very unhappy about it and cried out each time mom clipped a nail. then afterwards i pouted. mom says i should feel better and not be mad because its easier to walk when the nails are shorter. i like to hang from the top of my cage by one nail and swing. my nails were getting so long it was hard to unhook the nail after i was done. i tried to swing with the shortened nail and it worked fine. i am still mad at mom.

  Hi Sam!
Yeah you are right, we should have a potato bar full of different kinds of cooked potatoes.

I'll run and tell the chefs!! :). Thanks Hulk for suggesting a potato bar, what a great idea. :)

Laka gives him a kiss on the cheek. He blushes.......,,

The fish fry is a successful dinner. The chefs took the fish that Angel Pookie and Dixie caught from the Castle Lake and had baked, stir-fried, steamed, broiled, fried and sautéed any which way one can to cook the fish with.
Some have been cooked in butter, garlic and lemon grass and lemon sauce. Thanks to Cookie for bringing the wagon full of fresh lemons. Now we don’t think you picked them all from the Enchanted Fruit Trees did ya? Well, anywho, it will be the bestest fish fry ever!

We will have tater tots, baked potato with the fixins’, potatos augratin with cheese, stir fried potatoes, hash brown potatoes, mashed potatoes and every which way one can cook a tater. The chefs have outdone themselves with this fish fry, Laka thinks to herself she is very lucky to have such dedicated chefs cooking a great meal that every birdie will enjoy. She smiles as she greets her guests coming for the fish fry tonight.

Welcome to the First Annual Fish Fry at the Castle!! Thanks to Dixie and Angel Pookie for catching so many fish out of the Castle Lake. Who knew there was that much fish? When Dixie and Angel Pookie got back from their fish-kin trip their coolers were filled to the gills, all ready for the chefs to cook and make a great meal for everyone.

Cookie, will you say grace for our First Annual Fish Fry? Cookie smiles, sure…….. and it goes like this…….

Here’s a vote for you my sweet friends.

Love & Hugs,

Your Humble Queen Laka Aolani

Come visit me, Angel Sallykins with her pretty red hat on, Angel Pookie says on guard you scoundrel !!! & Laka with her pink Lehua flower hat on.
