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 Miss Chyna
Hello to all my Amazon Adventurers, Amando here with an update on events as they unfold in the Tropical Rain forest. Some of asked about those blue-fronted Amazons in the cages in my gallery. That is where our Armandos family will end up if we do not stop those poachers from trapping them for the PET TRADE. I have no doubts we will put a stop to their plans.
BonBon, Boo Boo, Pepper, Angel, Chyna, Polly, Zippy, LA and Dixie sneak off through the undergrowth to get a better look at what the poachers have been working on. Being very careful and quiet they work slowly towards the opening where the Green Angels have observed their enemies devilish work. Taking note of the area, the nets and where each poacher waits, hidden in the trees for the unsuspecting Blue-Fronted Amazon flock to arrive at their feeding grounds. Returning to the others they explain in detail the whole scene. After listen quietly, Cappy's anger grows to a frenzy of temper, "Today would be an eggcellent day to kick some poacher tail feathers." Cappy ruffles his feathers in anticipation and the look in his eyes would scare anybody.
Kaji grins,"Gotta say, Lizzie is so ready to torch those guys if you want her to. More than happy! She could do a slow roast, good fire power control." Lizzie smiles sweetly and puffs a small flame from her mouth to emphasize Kaji's point.
Ipo is more then ready for battle against the poachers. Ipo whips out her sword. "This is getting too much!!" She gets ready to fly when she feels Sophie's wing on her shoulder "this isn't your time, Ipo. We must await the other rescuers. Your turn will come soon. Now put that away." Jenny and Amando consult together with Sky, Cappy and Kaji, then standing on a rock JL clears her voice and begins to outline the plan for attack. "we will sneak up on them. The Special Forces will tend to the nets, cutting them down from the trees. Silver, you and Chuey are in charge of rope chewing, pick helpers and remove every rope you see. The rest of us will wait for the nets to drop and begin our attack. We are going to bite, scratch, chase, net, warm-up ( she grins at Lizzie) those poachers like they have never dreamed possible."
The birds cheer and high 4 one another, "Then we will return Armando to his flock safe and sound. We have to deal with these thieves first. This poaching happens everyday around the world. Innocent Parrots are stolen from nests, their flocks, many die, many suffer untold abuse and neglect just so people can get "cheap" Parrots. ENOUGH!" AMANDO YELLS.
Sky grabs BB's nest box and carries it under his wing as the BC Commando troops move into position. With the help of Elvis, Willie, Oz and Chyna they get the trap high in one of the trees.
"OK TROOPS Let's go get us some poachers" JL calls with determination as they move as one and begin their plot to stop their unsuspecting enemies.

He has almost totally adjusted to a salt free diet, and very few sugary snacks at bed time (a bad habit), worse than smoking and drinking Bourbon!

  Hi Chyna
We are so sorry that we never got back to you,our power went out on Tuesday morning around 7:00am and Mom was busy trying to get the old coal/wood stove to run and after two and a half hours she finally succeeded.Then when the embers were bright orange she put the coal on top and it actually took this time.Mom shut the tv room door to keep the heat in the tv room and brought all our small deck cages in and then brought us all inside,she had to tie the door shut as the strong winds just whipped through the house and kept opening the door.All day and all night we listened to the wind whipping around us out there and the windows were all pasted with the snow so you couldn't see out the windows.Mom called NStar and they told her that it would be multiple days before we got our power back because as soon as they would fix one area another would break down.Then on the street that we are off of a big tree fell down and one of the town trucks broke down and NStar couldn't do the repair job that needed to be done.Early this morning Mom went out to see just how bad things were and there's a tree that fell over in the driveway and the snow is piled higher than my Mom is.The deck and yard are covered and the snow is as high as the four foot fence,the snow on the deck is up to the top of the bottom of the glass part of the storm door and right against the house.Mom was out there this morning trying to shovel the snow,its 23 degrees and the sun is out today but Mom's fingers are frozen and they were beginning to sting so she came inside for a rest.She tried to use the snow plow but the snow is way too high for that little thing.Mom is trying to get just dads side of the driveway done as he's been staying at work overnight for the last few nights and is running out of food so Mom has to get the driveway shoveled so he can come home.She tried calling plow companies but they haven't gotten back to her yet.We got well over 24 inches of snow as the surrounding towns got 24 inches.
Mom finally got someone to plow out half her driveway and the guy kept getting stuck as there was lots of ice underneath it,he had to get pulled out by the guy who was plowing out the neighbors yard across the street with a bob cat.He had a big truck with a plow on it and no matter what he did he kept getting stuck.He even pulled the tree up that had fallen across the driveway for Mom.The roads here are badly done and you can see everyone bouncing up and down coming down LakeSide even in their SUV's and skin bro came to help Mom this morning and got stuck on the corner of Lakeside,the street that Mom is off of and no one would help him,he had to get out and shovel himself out and finally someone came along and pushed him but instead of coming into Lakeside they pushed him onto the main road so Mom told him to go home as he kept fishtailing for most of the way down here.Mom was so scared he might slide into something.This snow is way too much and we have no place to put it and we're supp

  Hi Chyna
Sounds like so much fun! I bet the pelicans were awesome!
Today it's quite cold, it was 12 degrees when mom walked the dogs earlier. It's supposed to go to 25 today, and if it warms up, mom might make it to the supermarket for a few things. She doesn't rush out before a storm because we usually have enough in the house, but a neighbor needed some things, so mom shared. Tomorrow we're supposed to go to 39, but they are predicting a wintry mix of ice and rain. That's scary, because mom has a tour at the museum tomorrow, and will have to go out. Hopefully the weather guessers are wrong, and it won't be so bad.
Did you laugh when the National Weather service issued that apology? We thought it was hysterical, since they are wrong about 60% of the time! It's good that the snowfall was less, but it was still a big storm.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Commando Chyna
Amando here with today's Amazon Adventure update. We have located the flock of wild Blue-Fronted Zons who had been attacked by the same group of poachers earlier this year raiding countless nests for babies. The poachers have been secretly laying nets to trap Armando's flock at their daily feeding grounds just ahead of us. We must move with extreme caution and be on the ready from here on.
Capt. Finny, Chuey, Kallie and Pearl return to the group for a quick briefing. "Since spotting baby Armando's flock, the Green Angels and I have been flying from tree to tree trying to locate his Momma. At the same time we are warning all 38 blue-fronted Amazons of the danger lurking beneath them. We are warning them to stay as high in the tree canopy as possible since the poachers cannot get too high where the branches turn into twigs, and watch out for nets. We told them that we have an entire company of parrots coming to their aid and told them to stay hidden until they hear JL's command to attack. Then they can join in the fun of ripping those poachers to bits and wrapping them in the very nets they had intended for the birds. In the mean time we'll continue our search for his Momma. Only 11 more trees to go..." off they fly to continue their search.
Kiddo whispers to Susan and Polly, " Nothing makes me madder then poachers, and they are just lucky my mom isn't here.."
Kaji tells Amando his idea, "We gotta get to the flock before the poachers do. I still say Lizzie could torch the dirty jerks, no problem. I bet she would scare the living you know what out of those evil people." Amando laughs at the thought.
Sweetpepper plays with baby Armando, she tells Sugar and Dory" It's very sad that 17 babies died. We will give baby Armando back to his parronts and save them from those rotten poachers." Sugar smiles but the anger in her eyes tells it all.
Cori and Boo Boo sigh, we have an idea, "we say lets get rid of these poachers once and for all. ,hey are only doing it because they need money. lets show them something they can do that doesn't harm anything and makes them lots of money, turning their poo into bio fuel." Sky can't help but grin at that thought. Jenny-Lynn nods her head in agreement then suddenly raises her wing for the group to halt, making the "be quiet" sign at the same time. Leaning close to Amando's ear she says, "your plans for Armando's return is a good one, we certainly have the parrot power to succeed! I almost feel sorry for those poacher folks! Somebody will have to hold Cappy back, I think that dude can get violent, LOL!"
They watch Cappy sharpening his beak. Cappy speaks up," if there are 5 poachers then I suggest a two fold trap ... the net and also a deadfall ... a hidden box with a fake nest and bird to attract them poachers in and as soon as they reach for it ...baaam ... the box slams shut ... effectively trapping them and making them vulnerable to our attack. What do you think ."

Dad did take a slip-slid and fall outside the Doctor's Office. It is nasty-icy out there.
He wasn't hurt but still doesn't like to fall.

I can hardly wait until you get home so I can see you and the photos of your trip...my love.

Mom watched Media Day at the Super Bowl...some players from each team are required to talk to the media so mom wanted to see what Marshawn would do as they, the NFL, told him that if he didn't show up at media day he would be fine $500,000.00. A ridiculous amount of money...

Tomorrow is grocery day so we hope mom finds some yummy food.

Oh we are tickled pink that your in the warm area and enjoying it so!! Maybe you could just stay there till June and by then it wont be too cold at your house either.
I sure do like to fly and during the day I often do a fly around between the dining room and living room in a neat circle too. Lately mom has been taking me to the back of the hall and telling me to fly home and I fly all the way down the hall and to the living room and dining room and finally to my condo. Mom says its good exercise for me too. ”Dear Winter, I’m breaking up with you. I think its time I start seeing other seasons. Summer is hotter than you.” V4U Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Commando Chyna
Hello Birdie Commandos, Amando here in the sunny Brazilian Rain Forest. We are on our way to intercept baby Armando's flock and reunite him with his Momma. We have been made aware of poacher activities in the clearing up ahead at a frequently used feeding grounds. As we begin our trek across the dense jungle of south America our goal is to stop the poachers and take a BIG bite out of the illegal Parrot trade once and for all. Amando, Jenny-Lynn and Sky move out ahead of the others using their machetes to cut through the vines and growth making a path for the others to follow. " Those paochers are gonna be sorry they messed with us!" JL comments with an angry Zon growl. Calling a halt, the group stops for a brief rest beside a cool stream.
Cappy quickly sharpens his beak and talons before the group heads off again. He wants to make sure he is able to rip and shred flesh easily. Dory and Dixie hang back with little Armando and Dixie quietly plays peek-a-boo with him to take his mind off what's going on. Rudy ... is looking for something to eat again. Finding some avi-cakes to munch on.
"We need to make a plan to catch them cold-handed, and teach them a lesson they won't forget." Jenny comments to the others.
"If we lay the net on the ground and cover it with leaves, maybe they'll get caught and tangled and trip over themselves !" Cookie exclaims determination on his face
"A note to the poachers; "I know who you are, and what you do I shall never forgive you for, ever, YOU BELONG TO ME! My name is Jenny Lynn, and this is the same jungle my mom and dad grew up in, you are dead meat, GAME ON! " She gets an angry look in her eyes as see thinks of all the birds who have lived and died at the hands of poachers, of the thousands, upon thousands who have been stolen away from their homes, families and flocks, of Paoo who was mutilated for the enjoyment of humans to see. THIS IS WAR. We must fight hard, and we must never given in." she yells loudly and is joined by the cheers of agreement from all the others.
Amando climbs up onto a fallen limb, " Our greatest challenge lies before us. Captain Finny and the Green Angels have been doing reconnaissance and have brought back confirmation that there are 5 poachers ahead to the south west. Also they have located the flock from which baby Armando was stolen. There are approximately 38 Blue-fronted Amazons living and nesting not four miles from here. It appears that the same group of thieves raided the nests of fourteen nesting pairs this year taking all but two youngsters from their homes. Three adults were severely injured while attempting to defend their nests from intruders. Very fortunately no adults were killed at that time, but the mortality rate among the stolen chicks was high, out of thirty-three chicks, seventeen died en-route to the village from chilling, dehydration and crowding. We believe baby Armando is one of the survivors of that nest raid."

  Hi Chyna--
We saw you went to visit Felix! Did you kiss him? You could bring him to the kissing booth, but Scoobie might get jealous!

  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...

Love from Jenny, Ziggy, & our Dallas flockily

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

Dad has to slip-slide to the Doctor, so need to cut this short - Make it a great day. Flitzer

  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...

Love from Jenny, Ziggy, & our caring family
