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 and very thin. 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
This morning was a dark grey and very windy day with our highs for the day of 73 and the lows of 61,its 68 right now at 7:00pm and it feels so cold because of that awful wind.Mom fed us all and cleaned our cages and then she loaded the car with all the donation stuff she had cleaned out from the tv room closet and got in the car and took off.She stopped at the donation place first,the Mashpee Senior Center and unloaded the car and had to take it inside the building all the way to the back of the store by herself.It took her six trips back and forth as the boxes and the big huge garbage bags were so heavy.Then from there she went to Nana's and she and Nana went to our Papa's grave,(Nana's husband,Mom's dad)at the National Cemetery.There were thousands of flags everywhere on all the graves and there were several new graves there since the last time Mom was there and they were digging another new grave while Mom and Nana put the Rhododendron flower on Papa's grave.The grass was soaking wet and Mom got her feet all wet walking the distance to find the gravesite.Then from there they went to Market Basket and Mom and Nana were trying hard not to overdo it and spend too much money there.Mom got only the things she needed and there were several good markdowns she got there but no good grill meat that she could afford.Then from there they went to our house so Mom could drop off all the frozen foods she had and her other groceries and to pick Dixie up.Then they went back to Nana's house to drop off all her frozen groceries and groceries and then they went to Roche Bros grocery to find something to eat for lunch,(it was now after 3:30pm)but found nothing there to eat,then they went to Stop&Shop and found fresh corn on the cob and some other groceries,then from there they went back to Nana's house where Nana made them a salad with bruschetta.It was after 4:30 by the time they had lunch.Then Mom helped clean up and packed Dixie up and went home to make dinner for dad,it was 6:30pm by the time she got home and had to put all the groceries away and clean our cages(Dad had already given us our snacks),and she was so tired she just gave Dad a frozen dinner,it was too late to start cooking anything big.By the time Mom got done with everything it was 7:30pm.Now she can finally start our blogs for us!
That's a long time to be without a car,your poor Mom is stranded while Jess uses it to get to work.Mom is still trying to figure out how to get to Nana's house and get her car to use if she needs to take Nana to the drs visits and for her errand runs.
Oh how scary you had a black bear right next to your yard!We've seen them on the news and how dangerous they can be and they sure do love those bird feeders.

  Hi Chyna
Other than disappearing blogs from time to time, I am not having issues with BC today. Seems like when I vote the page I am on loses the blogs, so I have to remember to blog first. Then I sometimes forget to vote! Oh well....

Well, I finally got a good sunbath, and it was worth waiting for. Mom and I went outside right after lunch and it was perfect. (Yeah, I got Mom to eat!!) She brought out her book and two nutriberries, so it was a very satisfying sit in the sun.

And as I wend my way around BC today, I am starting to see some nice pics for the Milonga Renaissance Faire contest, but nobirdy has actually entered their pics on the Milonga page #165848. Please be sure to do that, and you will want to list your page # when you do. We can accept more than one bird from a flock, but living birds only, please. So far it looks like the categories are: Knights, Ladies, Couples, Warriors (who aren't knights) and Humorous. Entries will be accepted through midnight EDT 6/15, and voting will begin on the 16th through the 25th to allow time for counting and creating awards before the Milonga on the 27th.

Just come back home and had a fresh bit of spinach which was lovely! I had a great time with Tommy, and while I was there, my whole nose turned blue! I am now a boy again!

It was lovely to see mum again, who looked quite different with sun burn on her forehead! We have had lovely weather here, getting to 20 degrees, but it is gradually getting colder and it has just rained.

I love your pictures of you next to the pink flowers! You look very pretty in them!

  Hi Chyna
Mom got a mani/pedi, and got a design on her big toe as well as her fingers. She might post pics of the fingers, as they are really nicely done.
Mom had an evolution tour with 7th grade folks today. It was a lot of fun, but it's hard to get that information done in one hour! They started with the fossils in the main hallways, then went into some Paleozoic and Mesozoic areas. By the time they got to Cenozoic, the time was up!!! Mom knew they had another hour on their own, so she suggested they look at the mammals in cenozoic, and go to the second floor to see modern mammals, and hit the third floor for birds. It's too bad they don't schedule 1 1/2 or 2 hour tours for that subject, though. The teacher with the group asked mom if she could schedule her family for a tour with a docent, so mom gave her information and told her to get in touch with visitor services.
It started out rainy this morning, but it sure looks pretty now. Maybe mom will get to the pool this afternoon, just for a little while. They open late this week and next, so if she goes, it will just be for a little while before dinner.
I hope you are having a great sunshine filled day, and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Chyna!
I am here early today because some people are coming for a birthday dinner tonite. They bought a house right on the water here ten years ago but couldn't move until they sold their house in CT. They finally sold it and arrived here last week for permanent residence. It is the lady's birthday so mom is doing a dinner for them and our friends Pono and his wife are coming over too. I am cooking with mom all morning. We made dip, homemade bread, birthday cake and deviled eggs. We still have to make a salad and potatoes! Dad is grilling meat! He is out golfing and then he'll come home and take a nap before dinner! hehehe!
Yesterday they went to see Tomorrowland. Dad slept through most of it. Mom thought it was pretty good.
Happy Hump Day!

It's Alex.
Mom and dad saw a very good movie yesterday, for free movie day. It's called "The Longest Ride". Mom and dad both enjoyed it.
After the movie mom and dad went shopping AGAIN. They went to Target, Walmart, BevMo and Sprouts. Oh, and dad went to Lowe's for a replacement hose for the sprinklers, which he forgot to install when he got home.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 78 and a low of 58. Dad's going to try framing some pictures.
The BC has been messed up for months.
Hope your day is fun.

Oh My ... bears in the bird feeder?? How scary is that?? Can't imagine there being anything substantial in there that a bear would want? LOL. 200lbs you say? That sounds like a small bear but then again what do I know of bears other than daddy is one lol.

We had more rain and hail last night and expecting more through the rest of the week :|

Have a great day. V4U. Hugs.

  Hi, Chyna
Know the oil companies get fined for spills but wonder if they also have to pay for the clean up? They should as even if an accident it was still their oil and should take responsibility no matter what.

Makes sense not to want the horse to drink too fast after having run so hard in a race. We do know they have to cool down properly as well.

Did the parronts see/hear the bear? Not sure how close your next door neighbor would be. We live in a suburb so all houses are very close together. Hopefully that critter won't be discovering your bird feeder next.

The BC issues are ongoing. When we first get to a bird page everything is there. Once you vote the blogs and pics disappear. So, if need to read the eggisting blogs must vote after sending a blog. We always open a second window for blogging so can refer to our own page when answering blogs. Wish they'd fix it. Haven't had any problems logging in.

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

"Flitzer Coffee" A touch of coffee with a drop of milk and whipped cream. It is a favorite treat.
The Soy Sauce behind me is simply where Dad keeps it, as he uses Soy instead of Salt when he is cooking.
Monday evening, Dad shared a favorite movie on DVD "AFTER HOURS" (1985 directed by Martin Scorsese). It's a very "different" dark comedy.

  Hi Chyna, ♥
it is hard for dads to listen and take it easy. Dad is doing a pretty good job so far as he knows if he doesn't then he won't be racing this weekend, mom won't let

It is weird that all that happened to her. Terrible start to the year and will end up taking her most of the year to get better.
Her husband, Wade, will have to do all the care for their birds...think that right now they have about eight. He is around dad's age so he is no spring is tough on him not being able to go and visit her in Spokane but he has to stay and take care of the flock and the dogs.

That is awesome that you were able to have BBQ, so what made your tummy so full?

  Heya, Miss Chyna!
You had a black bear come to visit? Yowsa! That had to be a bit of a scare to see one--at least I would be scared! Glad he did not bother your bird feeders--or hopefully did not get any birdies!

Weird day here. Rain, clearing, grey, rain, clearing, sunny. WIND! And that darn humidity. Mom says she is not ready for that to be here--she hates feeling like she needs a shower right after she took one. We were in the 70's today. Not bad. Had a good day snuggling with Mom. I have no idea why she suddenly started to laugh when I walked on her side under her shirt, though. She said I tickled her. Is that good?

Good your mom could still go horseback riding at least LOL.
Mom went to the fruit stand today and came home with some more goodies for another week. She went to the grocery store too and they are re arranging everything in the store in different areas and boy trying to find things is a bit rough. Mom goes up and down every aisle now cause that is the only way to find what your looking for. Needless to say mom is gone a bit longer then usual but I didn’t get to go outside anyway since it rained and then mom got busy once it did get nice so maybe tomorrow that will happen. “All you need is love, but a little millet now and then sure doesn’t hurt.“ Leaving a vote for you~ hugs., Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Chyna
Happy Tuesday everybirdie, Sweetie here with your BOTM blog for the day. I so enjoy the blogs, I read them each and sometimes twice in case I missed anything. Such great information is available right here among our BC friends. It's been a rather eventual few days. Momma Deb was called on to take in an older Cockatoo, but through many conversations was able to keep him safely in his own home. This poor M-Too was severely plucked and sported a rather nasty hole ( self-inflicted) on his neck. His past owners moved suddenly and gave up him, and an Amazon to a fellow local rescue who deals with small species only. Hola, as he is named was fostered into a home of experienced Companion Parrot owners with no Too experience. After Momma told them about the need for blood work to test for diseases, need to have the wound treated by the Vet and to discover, if possible the reason he is plucking, Hola is now at an Avian Vet under-going treatment.
We, BC Companion Parrot Ambassadors have so much we can share, so much to give to the Avian World. So many of you have done so much to help others learn about life shared with a feathered Fid. Everytime you suggest a good food to someone eying various foods for their Parrot at home you are making a World of difference both to their Bird and also to those whom speak with. It does matter. A few shared words of wisdom can save an innocent Parrot years of neglect, or re-homing. It is better to dissuade someone getting a bird, then remaining silent. From experience I see it often here, in my forever home. People visit, and OH I LOVE THAT ONE! I always wanted one of those? What is it? Can IT talk!? Oh they certainly are told the facts no holds barred. We are loud, messy beyond words, destructive sometimes, expensive, eat only the best out-of-season fruits and can be down right nasty when upset, hormonal or angry. People leave with a new understanding of life with a Parrot. It is not all that TV version of the Macaw on the shoulder talking in cognitive sentences, or a small, flitting bird singing happily in its barred prison.
Mom says she is going to keep close tabs on Hola, so he doesn't fall through the cracks, and disappear forever. She has arranged with the very BEST Cockatoo Sanctuary she knows of in Canada to take him there to live forever. There he will be safe, cared for and loved dearly by the owner, and volunteers.
I want to encourage everyone to get involved in some small way. Some of you have done quite a lot to education people about Companion Parrots. Not everyone has that ability, but we can all offer to be an advisory, to offer help to owners through animal shelters, or a Vet office. You might be surprised how willing they are for someone to refer people to with bird problems.
PLEASE keep sharing your stories they are fabulous.

Well, when Mom got home from zumba at the gym, she thought she was going to take me out for a sunbath. In fact, she actually did. However after we were out there for less than 5 minutes, Mom decided it was definitely not warm enough, even though it was 1:30 and the warmest part of the day. A cool breeze was blowing, and Mom didn't want to take a chance on my getting chilled. So in we came. Seemed pretty silly to me.

However right after that Mom heated up some enchilada pie for us to share, so I was a happy boy.....till she called me enchilada breath, that is. A guy can't help it if he smells like what he eats, now can he?

And then we tried to blog, but obviously the working out I have been doing has my beak just too darned strong. I was opening the desk drawers even with Mom trying to hold them closed. So she is telling you my story, but I am back in my room. Phooey!

  Hello Chyna~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! The pool is finally filled up but it was a bit of a disappointment. There is a room across from the pool which mom says is the control room. They just turned on the faucets and filled it up! Sort of like a bathtub but bigger. Not very exciting at all.
Mom made me some macaroni and peas to cheer me up! Mandy just loves macaroni and cheese so mom baked a pan to give her a treat also. She is a very happy dog! She spent the morning ripping up the wee wee pads and tossing the pieces side to side. Since I do that with the newspaper at the bottom of my cage, I can't say a thing! Mom didn't seem too happy that she ripped them up. They were unused by the way!
I'm off to supervise kitchen cleaning! Mom says if you cook you gotta clean! I didn't cook so I'll just supervise! In mom's case, she cooked and went to the movies yesterday so she has to pay the price!hahahahahaha She saw Tomorrowland and enjoyed it so she says it was worth it!
I hope your day is spectacular! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

Its a dark dismal dreary looking day here and kinda cold out there the highs for the day were to be 71 and the lows to be 60 and right now its 66 degrees and with that cold wind blowing its freezing out there!Mom just got back from the car repair shop and she's got an appointment for June 15th and it may take four or five days to get Mom's car back.Oh there are just so many things that one collects in a house over the years!Mom has to get to the donation places tomorrow so she can clean more rooms there's no room in the garage with all the big bags of stuff she cleaned just from the closet!Its so good to hear that you could finally get to enjoy your BBQ and the rain gave you a break!We are supposed to have all kinds of storms here for the rest of the week,thunderstorms included.Mom hopes its not so bad for when she has to go out tomorrow,she hates driving in the rain with all these tourists up here crowding our roads its even harder to get to where you want to go!Mom made us some fresh bean mix this morning and then went to do something else and she forgot she had the bean mix on the cooktop and when she finally realized it it had all spilled over and she had to clean that up and the cook top and then the pan that some of it got stuck on.Its a good thing Mom had the pan on low or else it would've been an even bigger mess!

Mom's brother has the medal and it's in a nice box. He cherishes it.
Mom got a shot this morning and her eyes are still dilated. The left one is scratchy as well, but that happens with the shots. Anyway, it's a warm cloudy day here today, and we're expecting rain on and off. When mom's eyes clear up, she's going for a manicure.

  Hi Chyna
It's Alex.
Dad finally got the sprinklers in place and tested. Everything works except there is one hose that is leaking and puts out more water than the sprinkler heads are. Dad will have to replace it right away.
After dad cleaned up from the sprinklers, he and mom went out and stopped at Aaron Brothers for some picture frames. Aaron Brothers was having a sale and mom and dad had coupons. They picked three nice frames so dad will be working of pictures today. But first, it's free movie day. Not sure what they'll see but it will be free.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 75 and a low of 55.
Hope your day was fun.

  Morning Crabapple Chyna, love from Jenny & Ziggy
I must say our day started out every nice with gorgeous weather, but right after noon, our MediaCom internet, phone, and TV cable service went down for 4 hours, bummer!

Love to all in your happy home, you are all very loved by this flock, see ya tomorrow...

Forever love from Jenny & our Dallas family

Hello Chyna,
Oh dear, where to begin? Let’s begin with thank you, thank you, thank you for all the lovely wishes for my hatchday and all the congrats on my BOTD win! That was such a big surprise! You are all so kind to keep visiting me when I’m on hiatus. Mommy says that that’s probably the way it will go all summer and into the fall because we’re expecting lots of company this summer from my skin sisters, brother, and grandchildren. Many of them live in other states.
Skin brother was here for Mothers’ Day and stayed for a weeklong visit. Mommy says she just loves that guy. Finny does, too, but me? I just love Mommy! But it is fun to have him around. He makes everyone laugh! We had our bird club meeting last Sunday. Mommy always has to spend Sat. cooking for it ‘cause it’s a yummy potluck. A week ago Monday, Mommy took our Goffin’s, Dolly, for her visit with Dr. O. in Toledo. That takes up most of the day since it’s an hour and a half drive each way. Dr. O. seems to think that Dolly is improving on her regime of meds. She has ABV and has seizures, but they are improving, and she isn’t having very many anymore and they don’t last as long either.
The weather is getting really nice here and we can be out on our porch everyday now. And guess what? We have baby swans after all! The parents came out on our lake Saturday with their four little cygnets! They are so cute…little tiny gray fluff balls! Just thought you’d like to know.
Lots of Love and Hugs from Little Miss Lucy♥

Come visit me, Finnegan - Thanks for your votes!, Daisy - R.I.P. - BOTW 9/17-9/23/07 & Miss Lucy Blue - Thank you for my hatchday wishes!.

  Hi, Chyna
Yes, more needs to be done to prevent the oil spills from even happening. Those pipes and things just need to be inspected, repaired, etc.

The horse gets the drink from the sponge? Guess they must squeeze it out into the mouth. Imagine drinking out of the bucket would be messy.

Good you got the BBQ time in before the rain. We still have food to cook for today. Hopefully you'll get lots of good weather later in the week.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Good morning miss Chyna
Sounds like a good day yesterday at your perch . . . mom and dad relaxed here - went for a walk after dinner, but that was it. The whole entire day they were home with me !

Now it's back to school for mom :( For 22 days ! Yep, it's time to start counting !

We're in summer weather this week - mid 80's with chances of thunderboomers each afternoon. Hope you have a nice fun day - love Cookie

Come visit me, Cookie waiting for summer fun, BC Library Now Open & Fly with the angels my Sally.
