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

Hi! My name is Chyna on vacation

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

Baby Girl, Chyna Cate

4 years old   F

Yellow-Collared Macaw

melon, apples, popcorn, peas, scrambled eggs.

On Mom's chair ...

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

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

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

Be happy and healthy.

  Flitzer at the Movies
Hello, BirdChannel Friends. Flitzer in The Director's Chair here.

This month is Oscar Month, so we're going to be Squawking about Movies.

Stay tuned as we dish about the stars, the films, those hideous designer gowns and all the poop that hits The Red Carpet.
- - - - -
The beginnings of film:
Silent Films were never silent!
Rather than leave audiences with only the noise of the projector as an accompaniment, theater owners hired a pianist or organist or, in large urban theaters, a full orchestra to play music that fit the mood of the film at any given moment. By the early 1920s, most films came with a prepared list of sheet music to be used for this purpose, and complete film scores were composed for major productions.

Come visit me, Flitzer takes The Director's Chair.

  Hi Chyna
Hello BC commando's, Amando here on this final day in the Brazilian Rainforest. We we took a bite out-of-crime, Sugar and Dory watched baby Armando. He was very restless and alert as he listened to the screams and calls of the angry birds. Suddenly he hears a familiar call echoing over the treetops. He replies happily. The calls continue as baby Armando replies over and over again. Captain Finny appears over the edge of the clearing, and there, following close behind are two beautiful adult Blue-fronted Amazons. The three land close to Sugar. Baby Armando stands up as tall as his tiny legs will allow him to and chirps non-stop. A lovely Zon moves closer, chirping softly in reply. The baby gets even more eggcited.
JL and Amando whistle in loud short Zon calls and the attack comes to an end. The birds leave their prisoners lying entangled in the nets and rejoin them near to baby Armando and the two wild Parrots. The wild Zon reaches forward to touch the baby gently, not certain if it is their chick after so long. The baby responds with happy chirps of happiness, "Momma? Poppa? it is me baby Armando."
The two Parrots grin happily and snuggle their stolen offspring to them. "How do we ever thank-you for saving our baby, and freeing our flockmates from the cages those evil poachers had them imprisoned in? Our flock was once very large over 80 adults but the poachers come again and again stealing them away, taking our chicks from our homes. They cut down our nest tree and stole Armando and our two other babies. We now have no home to take Armando to."
Gus speaks up happily, " we have a nest for you. BB built it to trap the poachers but we didn't have to use it. It is solid, and warm and we will put it high into a tree were you and your family will be safe."
The BC Commandos cheer as they watch baby Armando with his Momma and Poppa. The family is so happy to be together once more. "Sadly this is not the true outcome of poaching. Humans can help stop this awful trade in wild-caught Parrots by becoming our voice in the World. By NEVER buying Parrots without bands or documents showing where they originated from. Remember that many wild Parrots are sent to Europe to be shipped back into the USA. Encourage Eco-tourism as an alternative to poaching. HELP US STOP THE UNNECESSARY TRAPPING OF WILD PARROTS THROUGH OUT THE WORLD!"
Remember Paoo, what he suffered because of human greed, and also remember that many former poachers now fight on the other side of the law because of their intimate knowledge of the area and of bird habits, these poachers-turned-rangers are undeniably the most able bird conservationists available.

  Hi Chyna
It's Alex.
We miss you, too.
We had some rain yesterday. Not really rain, just dribbles but every little bit helps. It wasn't even enough to register on dad's weather station but the ground was wet. That's good enough for us. Mom and dad went to the movies and saw The Gambler. No, not the one staring Kenny Rogers, the newer one that just came out. Mom and dad both liked it. When dad started to fix dinner, mom said, "Wait, I want to clean one cage." Mom cleaned Emmie's cage. It only took five minutes cuz Emmie is a clean little birdy.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 73 and a low of 52. Mom's going to finish up the rest of the cages and dad has a computer to work on.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Alex.

  It's Saturday - Flitzer Day
Hello Fellow Feathered-Friends!

Bitter bitter cold here - Dad says he's ready for 'Global-Warming' whatever that is.
--
Dad stayed in last night - we had popcorn [Yay] and watched "It Happened One Night"
(best picture, 1934). I'm still not sure what "it" is, but the people in the movie must be sad as there wasn't a parrot in the movie.

Bundle Up if you venture outdoors. ~Wings Up~ =Flitzer

  Hi Chyna
Amando here, shhhhhh! We are just preparing to wage an all-out attack on five poachers int he Rainforest of Brazil. Make sure you have your camo hat on, and let's await JL's order to move in!
The Green Angels and Finny have found Armando's Momma and Daddy!! But have warned them that it's not safe to reunite them until we get those poachers. So even though they are very anxious to get their little Armando back, they've agreed to wait and help us. They're up there with the Green Angels and Finny right now in the tree tops tending the nets, ready to cut them down at a moments notice. Their awaiting the signal, but they're really geeked!
Jenny-Lynn and Amando stand on fallen tree limbs, Sky is perched in the tree near to the trap nest box. The Special Forces are standing, beaks ready at the net ropes. Zippy has already begun working on a rope that holds a large webbed net. Suddenly JL and Amando let out a shrill Zon whistle, the signal to begin their attack. The birds begin to chew and tear at the ropes holding the nets in place.
"WE ARE READY TO TAKE DOWN THEM POACHERS AND TEACH THEM A HARD LESSON" Sweetpepper whispers to Kiddo.
With wave of her wing JL leads the BC troops into battle, "we will do what we came here to do, and by the way you have all come together, we shall be invincible!" moving ahead she exclaims, " WE SHALL LEAD FROM THE FRONT! No more stolen parrots, no more needless suffering, are ya with me gang!" Then loudly so the startled poachers hear," Poachers, this is not your day, on this day you pay for your cruelty.'
The startled poachers turn every-which-way trying to see who has spoken. Then out of the jungle, from the sky above come the birds, screaming in anger as they swoop in for the attack. JL and Amando see the Blue-fronts crammed into wire cages and their hatred boils over. Cappy attacks the ring-leader without mercy, biting his hand hard and refusing to let go. The Special forces have the nets freed and as the five cowardly criminals try to run, the net falls entrapping them like they the innocent Parrots they have caught in the past. The air is filled with screams of outrage as the wild Blue-fronts arrive to help. The men scream in fear as bird after bird attacks, biting or pooping on them as they struggle to get free of the nets.
BonBon and Parker are gone to get the jaguars! The cats are very eggsited to help get the poachers! Their kind is also being poached for their fur! The angry jungle cats growl fiercely as they see the poachers flailing in the nets they'd set to trap Parrots. The poachers cry for help, like the Parrots they've captured but no one can hear them. Falco and Jesse free the trapped Zons from their prison, only one is injured from this group. They join in the assault on their enemies.

  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.

Once again we are having about normal Winter weather, no real complaints here in Rock Island! We got our new 2015 issue of Bird Talk Magazine from I5 publishing, we are anxious to read through it!

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! Have a great day dear friends, and give our love to all in your pretty home, see ya tomorrow...

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

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

Hi, BC Friends!
I was a great bird for Dad on Tuesday - even Stepping-Up and everything. Dad was so happy with me!
--
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.
--
Very cold 6 degrees today - and Dad has a busy day in and out [Freeze/Thaw Freeze-Thaw].
I will try to keep him happy when he's home.

My campaign for BOTM starts soon - counting on your visits and votes throughout February.

  Hey
We heard that the really bad part of the storm missed Zoo York City. And that people were complaining cause they close down the city.

They closed everything, BUT, the stock market was open, and we took a real bath. My nest egg sure got smaller.

Come visit me, JeTTa - PLEASE help Me get to 10K.. Thanks.

  Hi Sweetie,
so you met THE Felix...that must have been lots of fun, wish I could have been there with you...so sad....I miss you lots...

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.

Super Bowl is getting closer, only 4 more days to go...Go Hawks!

All my love is yours, forever...Scoober ♥

  Hi Chyna
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)
