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!

  Florida ? Warmth ? Sunshine ? Congratulations !
TGIF ! Although it's supposed to still be warm today, the humidity is supposed to be lower so there should be some relief from this very summer like weather . . .

Yesterday there was a really neat assembly at school for mom. The guys name was Patrick Dunning and he's a multimedia artist. He's working on this massive piece called the SignatureProject made all of signatures - and now mom's is one of them ! After school, she had the nerve to go to dinner with a friend and leave me and daddy to eat on our own ! And she didn't even bring home a birdie bag ! ! ! On top of that, when did she get home ? Tucking in time - of course that's good news, cause as you all know, daddy is not a very good tucker-inner . . .

Happy Friday - just think by Monday it'll be June ! Love Cookie

  Hi sweetie,
what a surprise to see that you are moving to Florida, I am and so is my mom jealous. Mom looked up that area and it looks really nice. We can't blame you for wanting to get away from all that cold weather. Your house is beautiful so it should see fast, at least, I think so. If all goes well, you may not see snow again...wouldn't that be nice...

Got pretty warm here today...high 80s today. No gardening for mom in the heat.

All in all, a pretty quiet day here. Nothing is going to top your news...

Love you, Scoober ♥

  Hi Chyna
mom put me in the lilac bush again today and while she was standing there holding my leash she noticed a big round thing laying in the yard. she picked me up off the branch and we walked over to inspect it. it was a birds nest laying there. it was very well made with twigs tightly woven on the bottom and the middle had plastic bubble wrap woven into hardened mud. on top of that were more tightly woven twigs. the nest itself wasn't damaged and must have fallen out of a tree. there were no egg shells or baby feathers or anything laying around it so hopefully no eggs had been layed yet or if they had it was long before it fell and everyone hatched and grew up.

love Cori

  Heya, Miss Chyna!
Wish Mom luck cuz she has her financial adviser appointment tomorrow. She is hoping he has good news for her, too. The longer she doesn't work, the more she doesn't want to! I think that is funny, and so does she!

I had to take another bath tonight--two days in a row! Gosh, I love being so nice and clean. The sun was coming in thru the window and that was my cue. Mom says that all I wanted was to be blown dry with the little blow dryer that I really like. So she did. That felt so nice, too! She gets all that wet off but doesn't completely dry me, so I can preen to my hearts content.

Not much else going on here, so will wish you a great Thursday night!

Wing hugs,
Your buddy,

  Hi Chyna
Mom thought it was going to rain today so she decided to wash the sheets off the bed and clothes yesterday. It was cloudy in the morning and mom put the clothes in the dryer when it didn’t brighten up. The weather guess said by 10 oclock the rain would be out of here. Mom tried 3 times to either hang the sheets out or got them up and rain came or rained while she was hanging them up so she finally gave up and they went in the dryer too. Oh yea in the afternoon the sun came out very nice and was a nice wind but mom had the sheets dried and put away by then. Dad calls it “dancing with the sheets” LOL. At least mom and I sat out later on the porch and I even got out again today for a sunbath. “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--
Wow, that was really a surprise message your Mom put on FB today. Florida by Christmas? Wow....you'll have plenty of sun there! Any idea where you'll end up?

The Hot and Humid has arrived here. Mom cleaned pots yesterday, cuz playing in the water is a good thing to do when the weather is hot and humid. She is cleaning out the sheds this summer (we have two) and is going to use one for her extra plant pots and saucers, so they are all getting moved over there, but very slowly, because who wants to work when it's hot and humid, right?

Other than that, we have been driving Mom crazy by playing "let's go sit on the painting by the front door." That makes mom yell, get up from her nice comfy chair, and come chase us back into the house. I guess she finally had enough of the game, tho, cuz she took the painting down! Party Pooper!

Hope you're finally warming up! Hugs to ya....

Today was mom's last day at the museum for at least a week, she thinks. She's not on schedule for next week, but if her boss needs a fill in, she'll go to work. Next week will be the last really busy week for the year, then it should quiet down for summer camps and lazy summer days. She had 6th grade in animal adaptations today, and most of them paid attention.
I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of sunshine, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Miss Chyna
Happy Thursday to all my friends. Sweetie here once more with our BOTM blog. I did miss yesterday as momma Deb was called upon at a moments notice to help out with a rather difficult birdie related situation. All went well, and it has a happy, satisfactory ending. Today we get all Momma's attention and she promises extra treats for everybirdie who was so well behaved yesterday when our friend King Mikey D's Momma helped get us ready for bed.
Our month is quickly coming to an end. We have shared some very timely and sensitive issues and discussion and I truly hope each of us has learned a little or a lot from one another's experiences. A life with a Companion Parrot is never dull, never ordinary and certainly never boring. No two species are alike, and among like species we each have our own extraordinary individuality and quirks. Some of us are as bold as a lion, others as shy as a mouse, yet we all possess the inherit ability to melt our Parront's heart, worm our way into their every thought and garner their love and respect. I wish that this description was universal, and it grieves my little Blue-Fronted Amazon heart that at this very moment, Parrots are suffering untold neglect, abuse or worse death at the hands of mankind. Never did my Momma Deb in her wildest thoughts think she would ever be writing as a Companion Parrot Advocate. That she would be one of the ones to stand up against our mistreatment and to put up the fight for our rights. Life has a way of changing suddenly, and if we allow it, it can transform a one time breeder into a Parrot Spokesperson.
I am only one Parrot, but I want to encourage each of you to take the challenge to become a Companion Parrot Ambassador. Never doubt your ability to bring about change. Whether you are a "get in your face" type, or a "quiet, shier one at a time" personality type we ALL can make a difference. Just imagine if every bird loving Parront spoke to just one person about life with a Parrot, about proper care, feeding or even shared what it is like to be owned by one of us, the impact would be fantastic. We could make change, stop improper selection of species for first time would be Parronts, change how one Parrot is treated, or how it is viewed within it's own family situation. We might open a cage door closed for years, allow a Parrot to begin to enjoy better food, have room to move in it's cage at last, find out how much fun a toy can be, or receive the Veterinarian care it needs and deserves. You would be shocked at how many do not know that their Parrot should be seen by a Veterinarian regularly. The number who feel a Parrot only needs peanuts and sunflower seeds. We need YOUR voice to make change happen.
NOW FOR TODAY"S QUESTION: It is not a question at all. Please continue to share YOUR special MOMENT(S) with your fids with us. They are interesting, educational and encouraging to read. Your experience might make a difference for someone else too.

Come visit me, SKY, Little Angel, jesse & SWEETIE, Let's talk Parrot for May's BOTM.

It's Alex.
Dad finally got the hose replaced on the sprinklers. Now, they all seem to be working fine. Dad also got two of the three pictures mounted in their frames. The third one held two pictures and dad worked on it for ever and got no where. He ended up taking the frame and photos Back to Aaron Brothers and they are doing it for him. Meanwhile, mom went to the police station to work for a while.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 83 and a low of 58. Mom and dad may both work at the police dept. today.
Hope your day is fun.

Thanks for helping me celebrate in the castle. Always fun times!

This may date us a bit but mom is reminded this morning of an old Johnny Cash song - Five Foot High And Rising ... thinking about the wall of water coming into the city real soon. This is a slow moving system and its going to cause more flooding ... sure wish mom could have stayed home from work ... then again we always wish that lol.

  Hi beautiful !
Weird, weird weather yesterday ! Hot, humid and icky sticky sunny all day - then around 4:30, it starts raining . . . with the sunshine ! Then it stopped raining and got dark as midnight for about an hour !
Still hot though, usually a storm will cool it off . . . so of course I squawked for my tub to take a bath ! Then even though it was time to cook, mom didn't want to put the a/c on till I was dry - no chilly quaker in this house !

20 days to go - should be 17 - June 22, 23, 24 are three half days tagged onto the end to make up for snow days this past winter . . .

  Hi my love, ♥
I like corn, mom got some today when she was out grocery shopping today.
She has now decided that she wants a little red wagon to help her in her gardening. She thinks she cab hook it up to the back of her chair when she is out trimming her roses. She needs something to put all the trimmings in. She saw on in WalMart but it wasn't quiet what she was looking for, it was bigger and had two seats in it for kids so it wouldn't work. Dad told her to look on craaigslist.so she is going to try that, she can get one online if needed.

That is a big bear, I think. Glad he didn't get your bird feeders...do you think he will be back?

I am not sure how long we have been having BC problems about it has been quiet a long time.

Your weather is like ours is right now, up and down. It was in the 80s here today but unfortunately it looks like race day could be in the 90s...way to hot for May.

Mom is still working on trying to get that video but so far I am not being very co-operative when the camera is on...lol

Mom is also working on the renaissance faire costumes...she has SuziQ's done so far.

  Hi Chyna
Oslo the Norwegian capital has inaugurated the world's first 'bumble bee highway' a corridor through the city with pollen stations every 250 meters.
“The idea is to create a route through the city with enough feeding stations for the bumblebees all the way,” ”Enough food will also help the bumblebees withstand manmade environmental stress better.” Bumblebees and other pollinating insects struggle in urban environments where there are few flowers rich in nectar, effectively starving them. flowerpots were placed on rooftops and balconies along a route from east to west through the city.

During the last few years, bees, bumblebees and other insects have suffered, with many colonies dying out, causing damage to agriculture that depends on the insects. Although Norway is not as hard hit as the US, six out of 35 Norwegian bumblebee species are close to extinction.

Oslo's municipality is co-operating with environmental organisations, the public, and and companies, who are asked to plant bumblebee friendly flowers on their property.To help the insects along, the organisation BiBy (Bee Town) has created an app, where the public can see the “grey areas”, long stretches with no food for bees, in order to encourage the planting of flowers in areas that don’t have nearby parks.
“It will be easy to see barriers and obstacles on the map. The goal is to inspire people to fill these gaps.”The public will also be able to upload pictures of their projects to improve the situation for bees and bumblebees, such as flowerpots and bee hotels.”Some bee species like to live in solitary rooms. They need small hollows like a crack in an old tree trunk. It’s very important to have some old wood lying around,”
love Boo Boo the Bee

  Hi Chyna
between the problems on bird channel and problems with the computer it is driving mom crazy. she can't edit a blog, delete it, correct a spelling error, read anyones blogs. then on her computer it just stops loading pages and mom has to force quit and then loses everything.

be careful with the bear hanging around. once it finds a food source it will come back over and over again. thy are so strong and smart that if it can't find anything good to eat it will try and come in your house and raid the fridge. then if you call the game commission they will come and shoot it and you don't want that. don't feed the birds for a while and hopefully it will move on. they are beautiful animals just trying to find food and can be very unpredictable.

HAPPY HUMPDAY

i finally got outside today with no problems. no jackhammers and no poisons being sprayed. mom put me in the lilac bush where i chewed off some dead branches. a warbler flew over to the lilac bush to see who i was. i ignored it. when i saw a bug fly around mom i would try and bite it. i was very happy when mom took me inside.

  Heya, Miss Chyna!
Other than missing blogs and pictures in the gallery and family pictures on some pages, and slow response times, the BC is as usual.

We had a repeat of yesterday weather-wise. Thought it is less sticky now. Had a lovely day with Mom, and then took a huge bath and got toweled off (boo, hiss). Then she brought out the little hair dryer. Oh yeah, I liked that! She got me semi dry, and let me preen and dry off completely. I am one happy, clean bird!

Mom had a phone interview for a job today. It is only for a couple months, and she is not getting too excited about getting an in person interview. She wants to see what the financial guy says first. And if she gets the second interview, that would be okay either way.

Wing hugs coming your way!

  Hi Chyna
Does your mom ever ride horses now? She must be really good to do the jumps and all those years she did that too! Oh yea figured re arranging the grocery store would be for more impulse buying too. Sometimes a bear is seen on the trail a few times in the summer. One year there was one in the parking lot when dad was down there too.
Last night on BC was hard to do. The pages were so slow at moving and though we blogged everyone we sure hope they went along with the vote we always leave for every birdie too. Mom even tried to do the vote question and it said she didn’t leave an answer and she did. I am sure we all had this same problem but boy it sure is frustrating when it takes so long to just get the pages to turn and then wonder if they even went or if the vote went too. Hope fully tonight will be better. “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)

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.
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses for sweet Chyna Girl,Loving you always and forever,Dixie

  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!

From Joey!

Come visit me, Angel Archie & Joey.

  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

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Peppino, Divo & 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!
Love, Squeaks

  Hi Chyna
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.
Hugs,
Alex.

  Hi Chyna
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.
Love Dory

PS: Come visit the castle for cake and ice cream and to help me celebrate!
