Awhile after losing my beloved Bailey, my husband found a bird on the internet. He asked if I liked it. I said yes, but I'm not ready. He said you will never be ready so let's go get the bird. We drove 945 round trip miles in the middle of October in the rain to Ohio. We found "him" (they thought it was a boy) in a small cage. The wings were severely cut, nails in bad shape, and tail shredded and broken. They got the bird at 10 weeks and had "him" a year. "He" never had a name, and they didn't handle the bird much. But they did teach him to step up and say "What are you doing"! They said, we are asking a good price because we don't want the bird. Well, the bird came home with us, an eight hour drive. After our vet saw the bird, it's a girl and she has a respiratory infection. She wasn't properly cared for so, she will always be small for a YCM. Named after a song we heard on the way home - David Bowie's China Girl, please welcome ...our little CHYNA girl.

Hi! My name is Chyna on vacation

I am a Yellow-Collared Macaw from Boyne City, MI.

Baby Girl, Chyna Cate

4 years old   F

Yellow-Collared Macaw

melon, apples, popcorn, peas, scrambled eggs.

On Mom's chair ...

Don't make fast moves around me. I don't like loud noises either!

I now have a real family and a big cage AND lots of toys and good food ... and a NAME! I've never had cuddles before and I like it!

Takes her leg and stretches it back and over her wing and rests her foot on her head. Plays with her toys with her feet while on her back.
I love to toss my toys on the floor and have Mom pick them up over and over.
I love exploring around the house on my own.

Be happy and healthy.

  Hi, Chyna
Hope you and the parronts are savoring the sunshine and warm temps. We never got into the 70s here but still sunny and pleasant. Today might see some much needed rain. Hope so.

Got to see the grand yesterday. Mom was babysitting as baby's parronts had overlapping work schedules. Rolling over and beginning to crawl. Babbling a bit more. Skinsis says she's saying Mama and Dada but hard for mom to discern that! Wonder if she'll be saying furball's name soon? At least we aren't scared of her anymore!

Have fun and we'll see you when you return home, wing hugs, beak kisses and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Dear Chyna, from Jenny & Ziggy
...you met the world famous Felix, wow girl, he is a superstar, we just really love him and aunt Kathy! Unlike our dear friends on the East Coast, we are having very seasonal Winter weather (THANKFULLY), but we pray for our friends out East, we truly care! We are all doing quite well, even the Zig is behaving better, silly little Macaw! Dad went out and give the cold outside birdies some of our leftover seeds, he can't stand to see them be hungry, we love all birds! Don't forget puppy bowl on Sunday, they are all so cute and all those dogs are up for adoption, very heart warming! Sugar has always been a dear friend, but since Art's Lakeland flock picked up her banner, Angel Christy is inching closer to the 10K HOF Club, you will never hear our sweet Angel beg for votes, she has too much pride and dignity for that! Happy ToosDay dear ones, give my love to all in your happy family, see ya tomorrow...

Happy Tuesday. 'bout 5" of snow and bitter-cold chilly temps, but we missed the Big Storm in Buffalo.
I was not on lock-down all day Monday - even though I didn't step-up for Dad, I did go poop in the right place, and that was good enough for Dad to let me roam the house. Yay

  Hi Chyna
Hello fellow Amazon Adventurers, Amando here with a rather "fishy" situation. After scaring the Hippos away with a Cappy scream and landing safely down River, we soon made the discovery that that the Amazon is home to some pretty "fishy" characters. Red-bellied Piranhas.
Cappy shudders when he sees the bucket and the churning water ..." I think it best to stay away from that water ... Thank goodness those things can't come on shore ... just look at how fast they ate through the bucket ... Faster than I could have ... whew."
The others back away from the water as Jenny-Lynn eyes the chewed bucket, then leans over to look at the fish. "could I get one of those Piranhas with tartar sauce and lettuce, LOL! "
Just as the birds had settled for lunch Capt. Finny flew in at a swift speed, between breathes he related the outcome of the Green Angel's search of the area. "Kacey and Kallie sent Chuey to tell Chipper and I to get up the river fast! Pearl and Silver have been on the look-out with them to see what kind of suspicious activity is going on. We're getting pretty near where we could be spotting Armando's Momma and flock anytime now. So we wanted to be really careful. You're not going to believe this, but we saw more poachers! And this time they were really operating undercover, spreading nets. I think they may be after Armando's flock! You've got to get up here fast with JL and the gang, but be sure you keep little Armando out of sight. We've come so far and we're so close now, but this is going to be dangerous."
Amando looks at Jenny-Lynn and Sky, then at all his friends. He goes to Sugar and leans over to whisper into Armando's ear, " you're almost home little buddy. We're not going to stop now. Soon you will be back with your Momma" he kisses him softly on the head and sadly smiles at Sugar.
Turning to the others he says, " Finny and the Green Angels have found poachers ahead. Armando's flock is in danger. We are BC Commando Birds and we will not give-up, back-down or retreat. Who is with me?"
With one voice the cheer fills the Rainforest opening where the group stopped for lunch. "We will not be defeated. Together we shall win the war over poaching!" Amando's heart filled with hope and courage as he returned to Jenny-Lynn and Sky. Sitting on an old log, the three discuss with Finny the area ahead, the location of the poachers and make their plan of attack. Little Armando must be returned to his flock. Jenny looks at the drawing of the area and frowns. The nesting site for Armand's flock is close by. "I have no doubt that they are indeed after Armando's flock. " Jenny growls angrily, and glares off into the jungle growth.
"OK Birdie Commando's let's move out. It's war. This time it is no-holds-barred" Amando yells.
Sugar and Dory get Armando ready for the cross jungle trek. With Guards, Taz, Spot, Gus, Cori, Sweetpepper, Kiddo and Pookie in closed formation around Armando they begin to move out.

  Hi Chyna
Mom really wishes she were there! We got about 6 inches of snow so far last night and today. Mom shoveled the front walkway after she walked the dogs. It's still snowing, though, so she called off at the center and is going to wait to do the driveway. She is kind of hoping that Josh comes by to shovel when the snow stops. It's supposed to stop by one, but it will snow again later.
Mom's family came over last night with pizza, salad, and ice cream cake to celebrate her daughter's birthday. They will try for Nicky's Thai next week if the weather is good. Everyone had a big dinner, and some of us(Willie, Peppino, and Maxine) got to have a little crust and salad, too. Mom made sure we were all in cages before everyone left, too, so none of us would try to follow them outside in the snow.
There's not much going on, due to the snowfall, so I will wish you a day filled with cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, PEPPINO, Happy New Year, Everybirdie, Divo & Falco, Happy New Year Everybirdie!.

  Good morning sunshine lady-from Jenny & Ziggy
Dad watched the 1st half of the Pro-Bowl last night and just couldn't take it any longer, those guys are high paid pros, and nobody wants to hurt anybody else, dad thought they should all wear little pink skirts, and carry parasols, LOL! All the new rule changes took all the fun out of the game, no kick offs, no blitzing, come on, give me a break! Our guessers have predicted 1 to 2 inches of snow, no big deal, but it will keep our dad at home today! Sweet LaLo was climbing all over dad, last night biting holes in his t-shirt, she loves her daddy so much! Our prayers are going out to our East coast birdie friends, Winter Storm Juno is said to be the worst ever, God Bless them all! Give our love to all in our happy home, stay warm, see ya tomorrow...

Next time, check with me first. There's a store over in Brandon, (not all that far from where your at), called 1-2 Tweet, and they always have a large selection of birds, and yes, toys, and cages, and more food then you could ever ear, plus all the cool treats. It is a great place, and close to the Brandon Mall, so Jane can do some serious shopping.

  Hi Chyna
This morning was a dull day here,the highs being 37 and the lows to be 18 and right now we are hanging in at 28.Mom barely got all our cages cleaned and our warm bean mix served,the floor quickly swept up from all our mess and a load of laundry in the washer,my dad's breakfast and coffee made when skin sis was at the door.Mom went down cellar to put her wash in the dryer and skin sis put her wash in the washer and then they came back upstairs to start baking,and as soon as they got started with the first thing they decided to make skin bro called skin sis and wanted to know if it was all right if he could come over also.Mom said why not?And he was here in no time at all.Mom went down and got her wash out of the dryer and then folded it while skin sis got her first dish put together,then after Mom got her dish ready to go in the oven she made lunch for them all of meatball roll up with lettuce and cheese.Then skin sis and Mom finished baking and got the rest of what they made in the oven,they made brownies,Orange Rum Cake,Cherry Cheesecake Dumpcake,and Mom made 12 cannoli's. Mario got to join everyone at the table after lunch and Candida got to hang out with Peepers and Celine on the big play gym in the dining room while everyone was busy.After Mom finished cleaning up the kitchen and washing all the baking dishes and putting everything they baked in containers,the skin sibs were ready to leave to go home as it was after 5:00pm so before they left they took nearly everything that was baked today and when dad came to get himself some of what was baked and only got to have 4 brownies he couldn't believe his eyes!Mom had told him before that he's got to be faster and come and get it as soon as it cools off.After the skin sibs left,Mom made dad some dinner of left over pork tenderloin,mashed potatoes and peas all in one skillet.Dad probably won't be home after tonight because they are telling us that this blizzard we're going to be getting is going to be going on and on right into Wednesday.We'll be getting a lot of snow,then rain then back to snow again and we won't see our dad til probably after Wednesday night.Supposed to get anywhere from 12-16 inches.Mom is not happy about that one and the things she's most worried about are the high 75mph winds,that could knock our power out and cut us off from being with our BC Family.Mom is worried about keeping us all warm.I sure do wish I was there with you and now really know how you feel about all this snow and ice and wind,Mom is a wreck right now just wondering how she is going to keep us all safe and warm by herself!She hates the thought of that old coal/wood stove.I'm so thrilled that you are finally working on your feather tan and getting all those warm temperatures and enjoying some pool time,how awesome to be going on an outing tomorrow!Can't wait to hear about that one!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses!Loving you always an

  Hi Miss Chyna
Hello everybirdie. Amando here with today's Adventure update. After a frightful emergency with my fister Sweetie and her Pet Store toy, we are back on our trip to return Armando to his Momma and flock. With the Hippos awake things got pretty nasty for poor Cappy and his boat load of Amazon Adventurers. Hippos are not native to South America but were relocated here by someone then left to fend on their own when their owner was killed by authorities. The warmth, abundant water and plant life are perfect habitat for the displaced African natives. A large male awoke by the passing boat lets out a loud roar of annoyance that rouses the others from their afternoon rest. He runs forward, his strong legs moving easily across the river bottom. The others in his pod follow, heading towards the longboat.
Cappy sees the angry hippo coming and let's out a huge Cockatoo SCREAM, crest up, feathers fluffed. The male Hippo comes to a screeching stop and stares in wonder at the large white bird standing on the helm of the longboat. The others stop behind him, not certain what to do. The leader roars again and steps forward. Cappy screams again, this time he is joined by the other BC friends. The sound is deafening as it echos across the water. The Hippos having never seen or heard a Cockatoo before stare for a moment longer then turn on their heels and head back towards the distant shoreline. Cappy screams once more for a final warning, before smiling happily at his friends in the boat. "You just don't mess with a TOO!" he says, grabbing his oar. "OK, let's paddle out of here."
The other boats pass by undisturbed as the hippos keep a nervous watch from the banks. The group sails past Manaus, before BB calls to them to head for shore for lunch. Dixie and Little Angel were so comforted to be in the boat with Cappy as their guard,he sure did scare those hippos fast! They wouldn't want to mess around with that strong big beak.
BB opens her travel bag & gets out the portable kitchen. Out of the storage bins she gets corn on the cob, veggie Kabobs,Soy burgers and Spam hot dogs. Little Bits Best root beer is in the coolers along with Cream & Ginger Ale sodas.
"I am going to call in the supply shuttle for more food. Any birdie have a request for food??" she asks looking at Sky, " yes Pickles, I won't forget. Sky could you and Jesse go bring some water from the river please?"
Sky grabs two buckets as he and Jesse wander back down to the River where the others are playing a game of beach volleyball. Bending over, sky dips the bucket into the river and suddenly the water begins to turn and bubble. Startled Sky yanks the bucket out. "WHAT ???" he yells looking at it. The whole bottom was gone, eaten away. "Stay out of the water, Piranhas!"
Everybirdie stops dead and stares at the bucket, and the River.
"So many dangers to be wary of" Kaji sighs

We had a sudden, unexpected ice storm late Saturday afternoon. Freezing-Drizzle mixed with snow coating everything - making an icy world. Dad changed his evening plans to stay inside.
We had popcorn!

Dad has to go out a lot today - but sadly, instead of temperatures going up to melt the ice, the temps have fallen to keep everything slippery n nasty. Hope he doesn't fall.

Hope you have a great day. ~Wings Up~

Hello, BirdChannel Gang!

I've developed a fun little time - when Dad opens the food/water doors of the cage, I slip out the hole. It's much more fun than the regular way of climbing out of the cage.
Daddy says "Holes are for Bowls" =but I just laugh and slip out that hole.

  Hi Miss Chyna
Hello Adventurers. As we draw close to Manuas, Brazil, we must be watchful for both human threats and the ever present threat from wildlife both on land and aquatic. Although the Hippo is an African animal, there are now over 50 individuals and counting living happily along the Amazon and other South American Rivers. In the late 1980s, Pablo Escobar kept four hippos in a private menagerie at his residence in Hacienda Nápoles, 100 km east of Medellín, Colombia, after buying them in New Orleans. They were deemed too difficult to seize and move after Escobar's fall, and hence left on the untended estate. By 2007, the animals had multiplied to 16 and had taken to roaming the area for food in the nearby Magdalena River. In 2009, two adults and one calf escaped the herd and, after attacking humans and killing cattle, one of the adults (called "Pepe") was killed by hunters under authorization of the local authorities. As of early 2014, 50 hippos have been reported to exist on the Amazon and it's tributaries.
With Mick Dundee departure after enjoying BB's lunch, the birds begin to wonder how they would get past the Hippos ahead in the River. Amando, Jenny-Lynn and Sky sit close, deep in discussion trying to figure out the safest way past the upcoming danger.
"I think we simply paddle by, staying as far away from them as we can. If we take one boat past at a time it shouldn't disturb them overly" Jenny-Lynn adds, worry on her face
"But if they do attack the boat and it is alone we might not be able to get there in time to help them." Sky adds
"I think we stay close together." Amando replies after some thought, " we paddle as little as we have to, let the river move us by"
"It might be best if we separate and place guards in each boat while passing the hippo pod." Jenny-Lynn directs
Sky and Amando agree, and set about moving guard birds into each boat. The nervous Adventures load their boats, and pushing off from shore, slowly paddle towards possible danger lurking the the River ahead. Finny and Chipper had reported back that the hippos were resting near the west bank of the river in shallow water. The birds move their boats towards the eastern shore, paddling carefully, ever watchful for danger. Rounding a sharp curve in the River near Manuas, JL in the lead boat with Sugar, Cookie, Raffi, Peepers, Laka, Strawberry and RT spots the first group of hippos. Resting submerged below the murky Amazon waters, just their heads exposed. Pointing she let's out a shrill whistle to inform the others that danger was ahead of them. JL directs her companions to stop paddling, and allows the boat to move slowly along pulled by the current of the water. Sky and Kaji's boats pass by the hippos without incident. Next boat to pass is LA and Dixie's group, guarded by Cappy. As Cappy instructs his friends to stop paddling, one huge male Hippo opens his mouth and lets out an angry roar. His sudden call rouses the others in the pod.

  Hi Chyna
Hello fellow Amazon Adventurers. I was sure glad to see that Ms BB had welcomed her pal to join us for a part of our trip up the River. She musta known we were going to run into some nasty company along the way. Nothing worse then Crocs or gators for rocking the boat so to speak. Thankfully we had warning from Finny and the Green Angels. With BB's shuttle always on the ready she was able to have her friend Mick from Australia join us . He has a nickname of Crocodile Dundee. Mick stepped up on the bow of the long boat so the crocs could see him better. When they did they all headed for the bottom of the river & stayed there. They didn't want to be made into boots,belts,hats or luggage!!! I sorta feel sorry for them after Cappy and Little Angel got done with them.
"OK, enough with the green gator guys, Ok Crocs. Let me at' em. I'll show them a thing or five. I'll bite their noses, sparkle their tails and then......"Li
"il Angel yells at the crocs as they swim around the boats. "Oh you don't wanta wake the baby.
Too late....LOOK OUT CROC HERE I COMEEEEEEEEEEE." Little Angel grabs an oar and whacks the croc on the nose hard making tears come to his eyes.
Little Angel" Sky yells, "Stop hurting the Crocs, you're making them cry. OH no not that." He watches as she grabs one by the tail and bites down as hard as she can, "and trust me that's hard."
"Little Angel, I thought I told you be good?" Amando looks at her and can't help but grin as he watches the neon sparkled crocs swimming away in shame, that a little girl bird beat them up.
Everybirdie laughs as the crocs disappear. Then little Angel turns to see Mick standing on Ms BB's boat. She grins sheepishly and giggles. "Way ta go mate" Mick calls to her making LA happy.
"Whew! That was a close one! Thankfully, LA, Cappy and Ms. BB took care of those nasty crocs! Good grief! What will we encounter next?? Oh, oh....my Green Angels just informed me that there are some hippos up the river. Just what we need! Do be careful. Hippos are even more dangerous than crocs. We have to find baby Armando's Momma and get him home before anything else happens. I'm off to check on the hippo situation and really search for Armando's Momma. " Finny waves his good-bye as he heads off up-river to re-join the Green Angels as they gather information about the hippos.
Heading into shore, tie off their boats and relax. Its lunch time so Ms BB sets up her portable kitchen." How about deep fried gator bites, corn dogs and deep fried pickles?
I have been told by Mr Mick Dundee the gator bites taste like chicken. " Picabo makes a face at the thought of Gator bites. Boo Boo yells, " Bring'em on!"
"Then we can sneak past those Hippos and continue our hunt for the baby"s Mom & Dad."
As BB and the girls cook lunch, the boys bring out some maps and check for possible nesting sites ahead. As they look over the map Willie points to a treed area, "LOOK! A nesting area of Amazon species"

  Sooooooo....
Whaddaya think of FLORIDA??? What's it like t'see Palm trees instead of pines? Is the sun warmer there? Are ya tan yet?!! Inquiring minds wanna know, or at least this one does. I've been thinkin' about ya lots and hopin' you're having the best time ever. All the snow at my house is gone again, leavin' eveything just downright boring anf ugly. Haven't seen much of the sun either. I'm hopin' it's shinin' bright and cheery for you!

I'm excited about workin' on the Derby again with you. While May seems a long ways away at this point it'll be here before we know it so gettin' an early start is great idea.

I won't keep ya any longer. You've got a fruity drink t'finish i bet or maybe it's time for an evening stroll on the beach. We'll chat more when you get back.

Come visit me, RaneBeau ('>.
