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 CHYNA!!!!
We sure know how your Mom must have felt when that happened to a doe and her fawn that you knew because even though Mom does not know the doe and sees that a fawn was hit by a car the first thing that goes through Mom's mind is how upset that doe must be and how horrible to let this fawn be born and then taken away before it even has a chance to grow up...That is our Mom a sure animal lover..Well today we are suppose to be getting a couple inches of snow but so far the temps have been hanging around 40..Maybe it will be all rain instead..That is if we are lucky..Hope you are having a nice Tuesday..Just pecked a V4U..With many warm birdie wing hugs to you our dear friend..Love you, Princess & Cydney :o)

  Hi Chyna
Hope your mom feels better soon.
Just a brief mention of the cart contents: the animal pelts that mom displayed were hunted probably 100 years ago, when guys went and trophy hunted. A lot of the collection is from a guy named Childs Frick, a friend of Carnegie's and son of Henry Frick, whom you might remember from Peppino's blogs. If the pelts are newer, they were donated by the zoo after the animal passed away.
Mom added stuff to the squirrel mix she brought home yesterday, some kibble and more nuts, so she has a lot of food now for the released squirrels.
Today a guy is coming over to measure the cabinets and show mom what's available. She is anxious to see what he has to offer. Then later, she will go to PetSmart for a few doggie things, like new tie outs and maybe a new leash. She wants to look for a treat pouch that hooks onto her jeans if they have them, too.
After that, she's ours for the rest of the day. I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

It's Alex.
Yesterday was "work in the yard day" for dad. He edged the front lawns to get them ready for mowing and then he cleaned up the south side of the house Guess he wasn't sore enough so he cleaned up the flower bed along the back fence and then mowed the weeds in the backyard. Now he's real sore. Then he took a shower and grilled steaks for dinner. This morning we can hear him creaking and moaning and groaning. "Hey dad! Look at the date on your driver's license. You're not as young as you used to be. Lighten up!"
today will be partly cloudy with a high of 79 and a low of 55.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Alex.

  Hi Chyna,
The Irish picture and the Easter picture are both from last year's original picture. I look pretty good in it, don't I. LOL I am so good when I get my picture taken but sometimes I do move and it's hard to get a shot. For some reason, last time I got my picture taken, they came out absolutely horrible. And I am a cute bird so it must have been the camera. LOL

But we will try again! We'll keep you posted. Have a good day!! Leaving you a vote.

  Hi, Chyna
Hopefully the eagles can modify their nest to ensure the eggs don't get water logged again. Know once that happened wasn't much chance of it drying out with the continued snow/rain/cold you've had there.

Amazing how the tiny bit of syrup scent was enough to get the ants chewing thru the house to reach it. Survival instincts.

Glad that you got some sun. Can always sit by the window to feel the warmth as probably a tad cold to go outside. Hopefully your mom feels better quickly.

We are honored to be today's BOTD. Thank you everybirdie.

Ugh, Sorry to hear mom isn't feeling so well. Dory hands Chyna a thermos of her homemade Chicken & Noodle soup ... this always makes my mom feel better.

We are expecting more bad weather this week ... mom really hopes and prays the tornados stay away but knows that we are in prime season for these nasty things. Mom says sometimes the best thing you can do is stay out of mother natures way we she is mad ... hmmm that I agree with lol. Have a great day. V4U. Hugs.

  Hi Chyna,
It was me with the blood test. It's to rule out my kidneys, liver and to check for diabetes too.

Cause my mom gives me water when she comes home and she's worried cause I used to drink a couple of sips to now the most I drank was 15 sips as she has been counting. :(

Moms hoping that its something simple and cureable.

I should get my test results on Wednesday, I'll let you know what the vet says.

Here's a vote for you sweetie.

Sending you warm hugs!

Love,

  Hi Chyna, my sweet,
it did seem like a lot of birdies went home earlier than usual. Maybe BC was giving them to much trouble?

It doesn't take much for ants to come in for a visit and then never leave...carpenter ants are not good to have where there wood. I hope your dad got them this time. Sorry to hear that the deck is toast and has to be rebuilt. You will make a great supervisor for the project. You will keep your dad on track for sure.

The amount of snow you are getting is just ridiculous...

We had a nice day here, the parronts went to the store and got the supplies needed to do the floor in the trailer. Mom looked at the flowers but the selection still wasn't that great so she will wait a while longer. Dad did remove a couple of plants from the front garden. They had gotten overgrown and needed to go. Mom will get a couple more new once she finds what she wants...

  Heya, Miss Chyna!
Well, gotta say that I am doing just fine. Eating and being spoiled by Mom. I love all the attention, and my head looks good, too. No more antibiotic, cuz it doesn't look sore anymore. No headaches, either. I have done this before, but this time more feathers fell out. Go figure.

Well, gotta say it was a sort of nice day today. Rain came this afternoon. Great day to nap, only Mom was at work. So I had to nap in my house. Perfectly okay though. Mom says she would have loved to be able to take a nap--with work winding down, there is not a lot for her to do, and she is bored. Guess it could be worse, huh? Getting paid for being bored!? Ha.

Have a great rest of the day, and will cya tomorrow!

  Hi Chyna,
Thanks for liking my picture! I actually did get my picture taken again when they had the Irish Photo Contest, but they came out terrible. The best picture of me is the one I used last year for the horse race. We will have to use that one again. Not to worry, if RB's mom has any problem doing it we will help her. I know last year I came out small and it was harder for her to make it but we will work with her. I really want to be in the races so we will make it work.

Hope your week is off to a good start!! Left you a vote.

Thanks for Suzi and my winning and congrats on you also. Love the band picture too ...so cute!
Today mom was washing clothes and scrubbing the floors. She was in the kitchen and I let out a little noise and went flying to her. Along the way my walnut fell to the floor but I never fly with them so mom thinks I had my beak in the crack and it stuck but when I flew it fell off. Mom hugged me and made a big fuss over it all and I was ok but you know after all that she could of at least opened it for me!! “No matter what the weather may be, I can always count on chatting with my friends on BC” Leaving a vote for you my friend~~Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

This morning was another dark dismal day with our temperatures highs being 42 and the lows being 33.Right now its 37 and fairly cold.Skin bro came and picked Mom up at around 8:00am this morning.So Mom really had no time to do much of anything except to clean all our cages quickly and feed us all.Then she collected the trash and recyclables and skin bro loaded them in his car while she got Dixie in his carrier and wrapped him with a blanket.When they got to Nana's Mom got Dixie settled in his cage there and set his food bowl down for him and he immediately started eating then skin bro and Mom collected Nana's trash and recyclables and they loaded them in Nana's car and they went to the dump,when they came back the VNA came to work out with Nana.The VNA had Nana walking over and over around her house with a cane.They are trying to get her out of the walker.But she is not to use the cane when the VNA is not there and she is not to go outside yet as the ground is too uneven and Nana promises she isn't going to try as she doesn't want land back in the hospital or rehab again!Mom and Nana were supposed to try and make at least one loaf of Easter Bread for Easter but that never happened so if Mom makes it over to Nana's earlier tomorrow they can start it then,Nana will mix all the ingredients and Mom will do the kneading.Then skin bro is going to take Mom grocery shopping at Market Basket to pick up some things for Easter dinner.They both have no idea what they will have for Easter dinner this year as Nana isn't feeling well with her broken hip,Nana doesn't know if they can make ravioli's.Mom said she wouldn't mind trying to make them as she's been helping make them for a while now.After they left Nana's skin bro drove Mom into Falmouth and he bought Mom and himself a medium blizzard at DQ and then he took Mom to the Dollar Tree to get our dad some funnels that he needed.Then he took Mom home and it started to rain again and got dark as night.When Mom got home she made dinner for my dad,cleaned all our cages and dad had already given us our snack and put our light on for us and filled our humidifier.I've been having trouble logging on BC I keep having to hit the send button over and over again.Most times it takes me 8 or 15 times before it takes.That wonderful Memorial for Mario did help me with feeling much better with Mario's loss.I really do miss him still as he used to always preen me and play with me!I so agree with you we are waiting for beach weather and the warm sunshine on our feathers!
Dixie happily gets ready for bed and Chyna helps him with the soft braces so he can get to hear her sing Danny Boy to him,her voice is so soothing and calms him and gives him a feeling of warmth!

  Hi Chyna
It has been brought to my attention that there may have been a miscount on one of the categories in the Irish Picture contest, so I would like to declare at this time that Cookie and Chipper tied for first in the Most Irish category.

I must admit I do like Mondays. Not only is it not a gym day for Mom, but Dad is off to work and not competing with my mom time. The only down side is that it is trash day. However Mom got me out for my sunbath at 10:30, and we timed it just right. Not a single truck came by while we were out there, although one did rumble past the house right after we came inside.

Then Mom helped her friend, Judy, edit another paper. Now Judy is getting her Masters in Poli Sci so she can teach at the Community College level. This paper was on the erosion of voter turn out over the past 20 years. Mom and Dad vote in every single election, whether it is a major one or just a local. She asked me to take this moment to remind everybirdy's parronts that voting is not just a right, but also a privilege that should not be shirked. If you don't like the way an election turned out, but you didn't vote...shame on you!

That said, I would like to comment on the lovely lunch Mom and I just shared. (Yes! She remembered to eat!) It was one of her frozen lunches, Basil Chicken and Pasta. Needless to say my favorite part is the pasta, and I have to admit I got more than my share. Mom is very generous with the stuff, because she knows how much I like it.

And now I am sitting on her knee dictating my blogs. It looked dicey for a bit, because she has her kindle charging on the desk, and I really wanted to chew on it. However I settled down, so it looks like I am good for the duration. How about that!

  Hi Chyna
this is a continuation of birds intelligence from blog on 3-27. we messed up on the order.
Examples of bird intelligence include…
Carrion crows in Japan that deliberately place nuts in roadways, wait for cars to crush the nuts then retrieve the nut meats, all while coordinating around traffic lights to keep safe.
Woodpecker finches in the Galapagos Islands that trim sticks to the proper length for use as tools to forage for insects.
Green herons and other heron species that use bread fed to ducks or picnic leftovers as bait to attract fish for their hunting.
Blue tits in the 1920s that learned which color of milk caps on delivered milk had the most cream (whole milk) and pierced those caps to drink the cream.
Western scrub-jays that hold funerals for dead birds by making loud noises and avoiding the corpse, behavior that may be warning other birds of fatal threats.
Northern mockingbirds that recognize individuals who may be a threat to their nests and will attack only those individuals rather than attacking all passersby indiscriminately.
Aplomado falcons that hunt cooperatively in pairs and thereby increase their hunting success by a large margin through this teamwork.
Jays that cache hundreds of seeds and nuts in fall and manage to retrieve the majority of them over the course of the winter, exhibiting great recall for their hiding places.
Other well known examples of bird intelligence that could be attributed to instinct but still show at least some higher mental capability include:
Amazing nest architecture with intricate construction
Returning to the same ranges, even the same nests, for many years
Ability to navigate migration safely despite changing landmarks
Play behaviors, including taunting cats or playing with objects for entertainment
Recognizing who refills feeders and interacting with that person
Curiosity when responding to pishing or investigating new stimuli
Showing emotions through courtship, caring for nestlings, etc.
Some Are Smart, Some Are Stupid
Like any animal, not all birds are equally intelligent. Ornithologists generally agree that corvids (jays, ravens, crows, rooks, jackdaws, etc.) and parrots are among the smartest bird species and that social, gregarious birds often exhibit more intelligent behavior than solitary species. Still, every backyard birder has seen that one "stupid" bird at their feeders who just can't figure anything out, while another bird of the same species seems to be an Einstein in comparison. Watching birds and witnessing their intelligent behavior can be a joy for backyard birders, and learning more about bird intelligence in quantifiable ways is sure to keep ornithologists busy for decades to come.

  Hello Chyna~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! I love your bunny!! It is too cute!
It's been too long since I got blogs out to every bird and I wish I had something exciting to share but it's been rather dull around here.
Dad is home for the day since he had to go to his doctor. Just the usual 6 month check up because of the cholesterol medicine he takes. You would think the cat would be all over him since he doesn't see him much but Merlin is still following mom everywhere. She is the one who feeds us so I can't blame him for sticking close by! You wouldn't want to miss a snack!
I will be having "turtle tank" cleaning duties once mom gets back from dropping Ian off at work. He wasn't suppose to work today but someone called out again! Ian picks up most of his hours that way!
I have the very important job of watching George and Gracie while mom washes the tank. They go into a little box which mom calls there summer home! I watch to make sure they don't escape! Gracie is always wanting to get out although I have no idea where she thinks she is going to go. It's a turtle thing I guess!
I hope your day is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Chyna
That was a beautiful service for Angel Mario yesterday. What a great way to celebrate his life. We were there, but silent, as mom was working. On Willie's page are 2 pics of what she was doing yesterday. One of them shows where she was set up, right by the camel driver and lions, and the other shows what she had out on the cart: lion pelt, cheetah pelt, sable horn covering, giraffe ankle bone, an impala skull, a gorilla skull, and a warthog skull. The pelts were new, and got a lot of attention. It was a good afternoon for talking to folks.
Today at the center, mom did the RVS room again, and was supposed to feed the bats. When she got to the treatment room, Jess (staff) had already fed 4 of them, and cleaned their terrarium. She was feeding one of the baby squirrels, and invited mom to feed the other one. Mom gladly did that! She hasn't fed babies for nearly a year, so it was a nice change.
Speaking of squirrels, when mom walked the dogs this morning, there was a squirrel near the bird feeders in front of the house. It ran when it saw mom and the girls, and it ran right into the hide box that mom brought home and got nailed up last week, so it was one of the new kids! Mom was happy to see that. She got more squirrel mix while she was at the center, as things aren't really growing outside yet. So they will have food for at least another week.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Chyna!
We were surprised to find out that the internet is working and pretty fast this morning! So mom is trying to get all over BC just in case it doesn't work after this! hehehe! We got a cold front in on Friday so that kept a lot of tourists from coming out to the beach. Now as it warms up, there should be a lot of people coming out this week to their houses.
Last nite my parronts went to the fair in the village and rode the party bus (a double decker bus with blaring music that goes through the streets of the village) and ate churros and salbutes. They went early so there weren't too many people but as they were leaving, carloads of people were flowing in to eat and enjoy the fair.
Hope you are getting some spring weather. When do the robins come up there?
Big hugs! Love, Squeaky
PS Congrats on winning 2nd in the Overall Irish contest Sat. nite. Our internet was painfully slow, mom was reading a book in between pages loading, so we didn't stay very long!

  HI CHYNA!!!!
Thank you for the compliment about my picture..Somehow Mom lost the Easter picture of me and could not post it so she posted this one of me that is sort of Spring like...Yes, mom is so glad about living here where no hunting is allowed what so ever.Because she come from a family on animal lovers and even gets upset when passing an animal on the road that has been hit by a car....That is especially the deer and their fawns..People should remember late Spring that the fawns are being born and that to drive with more care..But they do not and it is so sad to see one of those little babies that has been hit by a car....Stay warm.We are having another cold spell here and this morning there was a dusting of snow and tomorrow morning it should be the same..That is what the weathermen are telling us anyway...Have a nice Monday...Pecked a V4U..With many warm birdie wing hugs to you our dear friend...Much love to you, Princess & Cydney :o)

  Hi Chyna
V4U today. As usual, we're behind with answering our blogs. LOL :) Nothing new, just busy as always. Seems like today will be a nice day after having a weekend of freeze warnings. The flower bulbs are popping up more each day. This is such a nice time of the year. Have a good day. From, Mayo

  Hi Chyna
It's Alex.
Mom needed things at Costco so she sent dad over to Costco right when the opened yesterday. She said that it would not be crowded at that time. WRONG! It was packed. Dad managed to make his way through the store and even made his way to the "grazing stations". All in all, it worked out ok.
When dad got home and put stuff away it was time to pay the month's bills. We know that dad loves doing this because of all the neat sounds he makes. Does anybirdy know what a "&%$*@@" is? Anyway, that went on for the longest time.
Finaly, dad was finished and he and mom could relax. Yeah, we'll see about that! "Squawk squawk squawk! We want our snacks!" "Oh, so mom and dad get to eat that Margarita Pizza and we get apples? "NOT FAIR!!"
Today will be clear, with a high of 84 and a low of 54.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Alex.

Mom must have gone to be before we got your blog! My parronts were up late watching the Palm Sunday shows onnTV!

  Hi, Chyna
So heartbreaking for those eagle parronts to do all they could to keep the eggs safe but weather was just too harsh. Wonder if they could adapt and make a nest that is somewhat more shielded from rain/snow?

Uh, oh, dad left syrup that the ants smelled and wanted? Hopefully after all the repairs that won't be repeated. Know how difficult it is to redo a deck as it had to be done at gma's.

Hmmmm, maybe we won't mention that our forecast for today is a temp of 80? We aren't happy about that as just too high for spring. Hope you get some sunshine and don't miss it.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Hi Chyna
Well we are morning the loss of our wonderful furball and doggie friend Ms Tiger. She was mom dog and was her very favorite. She will be sorely missed. Nom struggles over this for several days but poor old Tiger was in pain and not getting around hardly at all without help. She passed away in mom and dads arms and loving care yesterday at 1:00pm. Needless to say moms a mess. Dory gives Chyna same dandelions from the yard ... don't worry mom never sprays the yard. Have a great day. V4U. Hugs.
Love Dory

  Hey Chyna,
My vet visit went good, she liked my camo outfit. :)

She said I looked very cute and stylish. :)

Unfortunately I still hafta wear my collar tho.

I hafta go and see her again next Saturday as I hope that will be the last.

Mom hasta give me the rest of the antibiotics until its all gone.

By then I should be good.

Mom has let me preen for a few hours today so that was nice and I'm trying to be good and not pick at my boo.

Laka went to the vet too but her appointment was in the morning.

And she didnt like the part when they took me in the back to take my blood. :(

Mom didn't hear me scream so I guess that was kinda good.

This test will show if my kidneys or liver is infected. Also it'll check for diabetes too.

The vet told mom he could get the results by Wednesday or Thursday at the latest.

My bill broke moms bank account, she didnt have enough on her credit card so she had to do a half from the savings to her checking and also used what was left on another credit card.

I sure hope we get some good results and that what I have is easily treatable.

I'll let you know when I get my test results back.

Love, hugs and a vote.

Pookie and Laka

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

  Hi there, my little songbird,
I loved your song and it made it even more special because you sang it for me...

That is an unfun thing to do for sure...what are they planning to do in the basement? Anything special or just spring cleaning?

That must have been very fun to have lunch out with your mom...that was a smart thing to do when any kind of insecticide is used anywhere where you are...

Sorry the parronts deck didn't work out for them so hope my parronts project turns out better. It will probably be painted sometime next week. Dad still has to wash the floor and nail down some of the areas that are starting to come up. Then he'll have to put down the sealer/primer before he can paint. They are also putting in some stuff in the paint to make it look better...metallic flakes, I think.

Love you more than you can ever know...Scoober ♥

Come visit me, TAZ..Thank you for all the birthday wishes..., SCOOBER...I LOVE CHYNA, CHICA ...HAPPY EASTER, ROSIE...HAPPY EASTER, NAPOLEON...LOVE MY ANGEL CHI CHI, SUZIQ...HAPPY EASTER, THE GREY'T GREY WINGS - THANKS TEAM, The Proctors...GO HAWKS!, SIMON...Loves Reba, Chloe...I MISS GIZMO & JEWELS...HAPPY EASTER.
