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

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!
I got this cage a couple of years ago. I was sitting on my eggs in the bottom of the cage though so maybe that is why it looks new!
Mom has been busy doing taxes and all sorts of admin stuff that has been backed up this morning and filing claims for dads' health work stuff etc. it is cooler today and maybe it will rain. We about died yesterday in all the heat!
The internet is fast today so i really hope it works tomorrow and thru the holiday. They put a portable tower on a lot a few blocks away so maybe it will help give enough power to our service!
See you tomorrow nite!
Love, Squeaks

  Hi Chyna
Mom would love that, but Whitefish Point is way too cold! Not sure about Mackinaw, though, it might be a bit warmer.
It was snowing when mom left the center today! Where is spring??? She had the bunny room, but there was only one bunny in there, so it was quick. She also cleaned the main aviary and the rolling aviary with the doves in. There were 5 doves and 13 pigeons today! She got the areas cleaned, got all the birds and the bunny fed, then went in the kitchen and did dishes for about 45 minutes, until her hands got too cold and she had to take a break. The gas guys are still up there digging, so maybe some time soon there will be gas again. The dryer turned out to be gas, so the interns are taking laundry to the shelter or to a local laundromat to clean. It's pretty much a full carload when they go, too.
Tonight is the last night of the fish fry at a local church where mom goes every Friday in Lent for dinner for her and Jeff, our neighbor. Mom told him to savor it tonight, as it will be a year before he tastes anything this good again.
I hope you are having a good day, getting spring like weather, and of course, enjoying cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Peppino, Divo & Falco.

  Hi Chyna
Birds do a lot of activities that may seem smart, but how much of their behavior is instinct instead of intelligence? Ornithologists are continually studying birds and learning new information about their brains, how they think and why they behave why they do.

Deciding just how smart birds are depends on how intelligence is defined. Birds exhibit a wide range of intelligent behaviors, including good memories, extensive communication, planning for the future and remembering the past. Some birds can solve problems, and others have been observed playing – both activities that indicate more than just basic instinct. The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines intelligence as:The ability to learn or understand or to deal with new or trying situations or the ability to apply knowledge to manipulate one's environment.
Do birds do this? Scientific studies indicate that yes, birds do learn, and every backyard birder knows birds are capable of adapting to new environments and conditions. Quantitative measurement of bird intelligence is difficult because birds cannot take intelligence tests or attend classes to be measured with their peers. Observations and studies of birds are revealing that birds may be far more intelligent than initially believed.
Bird Brain Structure
Brain size and structure is not an automatic gauge of intelligence, but it can be a clue. Birds may be small, but they have a proportionally large brain compared to their overall body and head sizes – in fact, bird's brains are similarly proportioned to primates. Studies of birds' brain anatomy also suggests that while the structure is different than that of mammals' brains, birds may have a higher degree of connectivity between the sections of their brains, which could indicate more intelligence and faster reasoning than previously believed.
Evidence of Bird Intelligence
The best indication of how smart birds are is direct observations of birds acting intelligently. While some observations have been made under scientifically controlled circumstances and through laboratory experiments, other observations have come from casual birders who notice their favorite birds behaving in peculiar ways, ways that seem planned and premeditated.

  HI CHYNA!!!!
Yes I do like your bunny it is the cutest ever...Well our spring just might happen to get here late April and a lot of the times it is already into May before we really see anything like buds on the trees and those Easter flowers we planted in the ground to come up...Last week in August already many of the leaves are falling off the trees..So Spring and Summer are short ones here....Oh well it is not going to change ever so we live here and must except what it is..But, we do not have to like it...We are suppose to be getting colder today and chance of snow showers all weekend...So for sure all of our winter things are still out...So we will be thinking about you when drinking our cups of hot chocolate..Hope you are having a nice TGIF..Just pecked a V4U..With many birdie wing hugs to you our dear friend...Much Love to you, Princess & Cydney :o)

  Hi Chyna
It's Alex.
Mom got busy and cleaned all of our cages yesterday. While we were out of the room dad cleaned up the floor. This took most of the day. After all the cleaning, mom and dad went out to dinner with mom's parronts to Romano's Macaroni Grill. They had a special express dinner for $9.00. There was plenty of food and it was really good. Then they went to the Brea Mall and dropped off mom so she could attend a special event ($$$) and dad took mom's parronts back to the house so they could drive home. Then dad went back to the mall to pick up mom. They got home just in time to tuck us in.
Today will be clear, with a high of 92 and a low of 60. A plumber is going to be here this morning to fix some bad pipes under the house so we'll be in lockdown.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Alex.

V4U today. Well, we had a few warm and sunny days. Yesterday the rain returned along with the cold weather. There are freeze warnings for the weekend. This always happens right before Easter, glad we didn't put our deck plants out yet or we would be bringing them right back in. LOL :) The wild birds have returned to our yard, hopefully we'll be seeing some nests soon. The wasps are back, too. LOL :) Have a good day. From, Mayo

Well it looks like mom is going to cancel dads cell phone. He pretty much threw the phone at her yesterday and told her to cancel it. All because he doesn't want people to text him. SIGH. The whole house is upset when dad throws his tantrums and mom has just about come to the end of her rope and she has scissors. Maybe tomorrow be a better day. Have a great day. V4U. Hugs.

  Hi, Chyna
Looks like you've gotten the modeling idea down pat now. Angel Bailey would be so proud of you.

Not sure what kinda stuffed animals the grand might have. Skinsis won't buy any since she still has all hers! Mostly furball leaves the baby things alone and plays with the doggie toys only.

Once again our weather is totally opposite yours. It got into the mid 80s for us (into the 90s for Southern CA) and that's just too warm for spring. Both our areas need to meld to get a more mild spring. No sun either? Yikes!

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

TGIF ! Except for it's still raining . . . but hey, it's better than snow !

Mom is running out of soft food ideas for daddy - all he keeps saying is once his tooth is done he wants to go out for a big fat juicy steak ! Where does that leave me ? I prefer for the parronts to eat here at home so I can mooch off them !

Since mom's vacation starts next Thursday, so will the spring cleaning - I am preparing my list of supervisory duties . . . she can't wait ! Can't wait to clean ? I just don't get her sometimes - jeeesh ! All I'm waiting for is the extra fun !

  Hi Chyna!
That sure is a lovely pic of Jess! She is a real knockout! I like your pink Easter bunny! Did you hear that our greyt friend Kirby laid an egg? So now he gets pink things too! hehehe!
Well, we woke up to no electric here today due to the electric people adding transformers around the corner from our house. Then the temps rose and rose to 101F! And us with no a/c! Fortunately concrete houses stay pretty cool inside so that's where we were all day except for about an hour in the morning before it got too beastly! Mom went in the pool!
The internet didn't work all day either but now it is pretty fast. I hope it will stay on this weekend so we can go to the milonga! They expect 100k people to arrive tomorrow for the next two weeks of beach vacations so no telling what that is going to do to the internet and the phones!
Hope to see you at the milonga! Hulk is going to talk for me if I can't make it due to no internet! Are you getting more snow?
Love you, girlfriend! You, me and Falco need to get a girls' nite party set up again! We could make it a welcome to the girlhood for Kirby! hehehe! Who else has laid eggs recently that thought they were he's?

  My little bunny girl, ♥
you look so cute with your pink bunny...are you giving it a kiss or biting his ear....lol

Mom didn't do anything to her foot it was hurting so much just because it decided to...part of the disease, never know when or how long the extra pain will be with you...unfortunately there is nothing that anyone can do to help mom and dad feels so helpless when mom screams from the pain and then mom feels so bad that dad is hurting too...oh, well, that's life...

We got a reprieve from the rain today, it was beautiful, lots of sunshine and warm temperatures. Mom was so tired from yesterday she just couldn't get out into the garden so she is hoping that tomorrow will be nice as well so she can get outside and finish trimming her roses etc.

I will join you for a cup of hot chocolate...

Cute picture are you kissing the easter bunny?
Sure was cold today and tomorrow even colder. My mom could not get warm today and that's unusual for her she's normally on the warmer side so she hopes she's not coming down with something. She's been feeling pretty tired lately too do who knows and now her throat and head are starting to hurt a bit. She's got the day off tomorrow so she better just stay home with me and take it easy. Have a good night.

Oh we love your pictures with the bunny! You are such a natural in front of the camera!

Well, we are back to winter here. Tonight it is supposed to get down to 19 degrees. Can you believe that?

Mom found out this morning that her contract will end as of April 10th. So she will either look for a new job, or she will look into early retirement. Now you know what I want? Her to retire, of course. So sorry for the short c/p note, but Mom had to update her resume and send it to the company she works for tonight.

This morning mom was washing clothes and the bed sheets. She was making stuff towards supper and then she wiped up the floors so that all kept us busy …well mostly mom ..I just watched.

This morning was a dark,gray,dismal dreary rainy day with the temperature highs of 53 and the lows of 38. Mom got the three of us all fed and cleaned,swept our room and then she got my dad some breakfast and then after a few more quick pick ups around the house my dad took her to Nana's where she met skin bro and Mom helped Nana get her shoes and socks on,and skin bro got her down the two steps out into the garage and into her car.Mom folded up the walker and skin bro put it in his trunk and they went to the surgeons office.When they got there all the employees were outside and the fire alarm was going off,then the fire engines came and they went into the building so Mom ,Nana and skin bro waited out in the parking lot for awhile,Nana was supposed to be there at 12:45pm but by the time the fire engines left it was after one.Skin bro drove up to the front of the building and he helped get Nana out of the car and Mom got her walker and they went into the building while skin bro parked the car.They had to wait another 20 minutes or more until someone came back into the office and then the receptionist gave Mom five pages of info that needed to be filled out,she helped Nana fill them out and then she had to go down and get another x-ray taken then after that she got seen by the surgeon.Nana is healing nicely and she has another appointment to see him on May 6th for a 6 week check up.Then from there they went to DQ which finally opened up in Falmouth and they all had a Blizzard,skin bro had a grasshopper mousse,both Mom and Nana had one with all fruit in it.Nana was hankering for some Honey Dew donuts and skin bro drove to Cotuit to the shop there and they made some Barvarian cream donuts up fresh for Mom as those were Nana's favorite so they got a dozen donuts there while Nana waited in the car,then they went to Stop&Shop to get some bananas and salad mix.It was pouring rain hard while they were out and Mom was so cold from getting wet in the rain.They went back to Nana's and skin bro got Nana safely back into the house and Mom made coffee for everyone and they had a donut and coffee,shortly after that skin bro took Mom home as it was well after 5:30pm and Mom still had to go home and make dinner for my dad.When Mom got home everyone fairly much ate but Dixie didn't touch any of his food at all,he didn't even eat the animal cracker that dad gave us all for a snack.Mom tried everything to get him to eat and he refused.Nana told Mom to take Dixie with her tomorrow when she comes there to help with the trash,Dixie always eats there and he may be missing his time with Nana and the car ride.
We all just love your Easter photo,how sweet to see you with the pink bunny!What a greyt pose too!

Your picture in your gallery with the bunny is awesome..We just love it...Yes your have 6 months of winter but your spring, summer and fall are all very short..We have about 4 1/2 months of winter, 2 1/2 of spring, 1 1/2 summer, and about 3 1/2 fall..Winter to long,hardly any spring,summer way to short and fall is the nicest for us...That is when it is most beautiful but also sometimes that is not as long and winter is longer....Well hope you are having a nice Thursday...Put on some extra hot chocolate and we will come to join you....With many warm birdie wing hugs to you...Love you, Cydney and Princess :o)

  Hi Chyna
Well, Mom got me outside for my sunbath at 9:30 this morning, and it's a good thing she did. It was already so warm she had to move to the shade in about 10 minutes. We hit 91 today, and I think it was already in the 80s that early.

I got pretty good Mom time today, although she deserted me mid-morning to help her friend Judy with a couple of papers for her Masters courses. She is really doing well, and she says she can thank my mom for polishing her writing to always get the good grades. Mom says her ideas are what are getting the grades. Sounds like a mutual admiration society to me!

Then Mom went to get her therapeutic massage, and she stopped at the library on the way home and the car wash so Gloria looks all pretty. Now what is missing from this scenario? You guessed it! She forgot to eat lunch again! I think there is some chicken in the fridge, and if so she will have a piece and I will get a thigh bone. Yippee!

Today is the last day to vote in the Milonga Picture Contest, so be sure and get over there and cast your flock's 5 votes for the day.

  Hey Chyna,
I need your help buddy. I've asked King Flitzer if we could use the Castle grounds to hold a Celebration of Life in Little Mario Adlers name.

He says okay so I will need some help with the decorating.

Can you and your flock give us a wing?

I'm gonna be asking more friends for help in making this a nice memorial for Mario Adler, Dixie's lil frother.

Pookie bows and says the Castle Ballroom it is!

Can you help spread the word for us?

Mom only has her phone thingy and its a little slow at times.

I'd really appreciate all the help we can get.

Mario was a sweet sweet little guy and he will be sorely missed, especially by me and my flock.

I'll gather some friends and well decorate the ballroom.

Thank you so much again for all your help and for letting us use the Castle Ballroom.

We just hafta spread the word so that no one gets left out.

Sending big birdie hugs and a vote.

We want to hold it this coming Sunday.

Love,

Pookie, Laka Aolani and Angel Sallykins

Come visit me, Angel Sallykins, Pookie strutin' new Camo duds & Laka.

  Hi Chyna
Bald Eagles are nesting on all three of Pittsburgh's major rivers! Who knew the day would never come when Pittsburghers would be cheering for the Eagles…Bald Eagles, that is!

It has probably been more than 250 years since Bald Eagles last nested along Pittsburgh’s three rivers. In the 18th century, suitable nesting habitat in the form of mature tall trees was stripped from the hillsides flanking the rivers to meet the lumber and fuel demands of a rapidly growing human population in the area; second, industrialization beginning in the 19th century led to extensive unregulated pollution of the rivers, which decimated fish populations that eagles feed on; third, beginning in the mid-20th century eagles (and many other birds) showed signs of succumbing to the unintended side effects of widespread use of the pesticide DDT (developed for use in World War II) which eventually caused chronic nesting failure for the species. As recently as the mid-1980s, there were just a few remaining nesting Bald Eagles pairs anywhere in Pennsylvania, all of these in the northwest corner of the state.
One nest, located on the Monongahela River in the community of Hays is the most famous because a web camas been set up to view the nest. millions of people are viewing the nesting activity. Last year this pair successfully raised three eagle babies. this year they only layed 2 eggs. one of the eggs had a crack in it and the mom tried to keep it together but when the dad eagle came to sit on the egg he saw the crack and threw the egg out of the nest. during a recent snowstorm the mom eagle was totally covered in snow while incubating the single egg
The Bald Eagle,has made a tremendous comeback throughout its range in the lower 48 states. Its recovery is due to enforcement of federal laws protecting it from persecution, the banning of DDT, which bio-accumulated in eagles and other piscivorous (fish-eating) birds, eventually causing complete reproductive failure through the thinning of their egg shells to the point that eggs simply broke when parent birds tried to incubate them; passage in the same year of the federal Clean Water Act, and, direct recovery measures taken by our Game Commission, which brought nestling Bald Eagles from healthy populations to hacking sitese when the state’s breeding population was down to just a few nesting pairs. Similar efforts by game agencies in surrounding states also have contributed to the rapid increase in the number of nesting Bald Eagles in Pennsylvania. By 2000, there were about 50 known nesting pairs of eagles in the state; as of 2012, more than 200 nesting locations are known for Bald Eagle in Pennsylvania, including nests in almost every county!

  Hi Chyna
Oh, I'm so sorry it got so cold again! It is raining here today, and dark out, but that sure beats the snow. Do you think it will thaw any time soon there? You really need to move!!!
Well, today is going to be one great day for us birdies, after mom gets done scrubbing the cages, that is. She has a few errands, but they won't take long, and the day is ours! We love days like this, they are rare this time of year. The museum will be super busy from after Easter until mid June, so this may be our last whole day for awhile.
I hope you are having a fun day today, getting some springlike weather, and of course, lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Peppino, Divo & Falco.

  Hi Chyna
It's Alex.
Temecula is a big wine area. There are acres and acres of grape vines. Mom and dad belong to a wine club at one of the wineries. Every three months they pick up their club selections. They will be going back in June.
Mom and dad discovered another theater that has free movie day. It's a little farther from home but not much. So yesterday they saw another true story called McFarland USA. It was a great movie.
Mom and dad's friend was moved to another rehab place. This is a small privet home that rents rooms for rehab people. He will be there for about 30 days more than he will finally go home.
Today will be clear, with a high of 94 and a low of 62.
Hope your day is good.
Hugs,
Alex.

  More ice & snow, you poor dear-Jenny & Ziggy
...throw another log on the fire, and set out two more cups of hot chocolate, we'll be right there Ms Chyna, and no bourbon in Jen's cup, she gets squirrelly enough without that nasty stuff! We are having about normal weather for this time of the year, but we don't care one way or the other, the sun is shining, and dad got all his errands successfully done yesterday, and his Nurse report was better than he has a right to expect! Only a few minor issues, not worthy of mentioning! We are praying for Cappy and the Millers of Okalahoma, they had another killer tornado, we are hoping our dear Okie friends are okay! My goodness, tornado season already, they can hit any of us at any time! Have a great throwback Thursday dear friends, and give our love to all in your safe and secure home, see ya tomorrow...

Eternal love from Jenny, ZiggerMan & our Dallas group

  Hi Chyna
Mom is fond of saying she has wild hares lol. Well we survived our first storm of the season. A town south of us, MOORE, was hit again ... mom says she wouldn't live their if you paid her a million bucks. Dad watched a tornado form over our house and then we got hit with pea sized hail ... we were lucky. Others were hit by baseball sized hail just 3 miles from us.

Daddy then shut off his phone and says he wont use it again because someone apparently added him to a group message and it was blowing up his phone. Daddy doesn't text .. at all ... so he was very annoyed and ready to just cancel his phone .... mom we see how he feels later. Have a great day. V4U. Hugs.
Love Dory

Come visit me, Captain (Cappy), Rudy, Dory & Dixie.

  Hi, Chyna
Yup, that's a new pic of the grand. Mom's been trying for ages to get a smiling pic as they happen so quickly. Not the best quality since used the cell phone.

It must truly be awesome to see all the hawks and eagles in multiple numbers as they are migrating to nest. Hopefully the weather will warm up a bit for all the wildlife trying to raise families in spring.

Keep warm, wing hugs, beak kisses and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.
