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

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

Baby Girl, Chyna Cate

3 years old   F

Yellow-Collared Macaw

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!

  Hi Chyna
Hello my dear friends. Thank you all for the lovely words of encouragement and your faithful daily votes. i hope you are enjoying viewing a few very rare and uncommon Parrots and birds. All the birds I have discussed are species that are kept in captivity. Some we will not see, or won't see available for a long time due to their rarity.
Today we will stop by to visit some very common friends, in some very interesting and striking colors. Momma Deb has raised many Green Cheeked Conures in her lifetime but none like those we will see today. Many are only available to breeders at this time due to their difficulty in reproducing their colors. I hope you will enjoy what you see.
Momma Deb and I tried to locate the current price of many of these beauties and have listed them here, just for your information sake--

American Dilutes--$2000.00 US a pair and up
American Dilutes yellow-sided---$ 3800 to 6000Us a pair
Red-Faced Yellow-sided----$2500 to 7000.US a pair
Sun Cheek -------$ 4500 to 8500US a pair
Moon Cheeks---$7000Us and up for good stock
Mint-----$5000 to 10,000US a pair
Turquoise---$500 US a pair and up
Cinnamon Turquoise---$750 US and up a pair
Recessive Pied-----$4000 to 8000US a pair and up
Red-Factored Pineapples--$300US and up per pair
Dilute Moon Cheeks---$7000US and up per pair

There are by far not all the new and shocking color mutations available but will give you a good idea of what has been hatching in Green Cheeked Conure nest boxes lately.

Habitat:
Seen in dense, low forests and woodlands. Also in moist, mossy cloud forest on E Andes where seen up to 2900m (9512 ft).

Threat Summary:
Probably declining in E Bolivia because of rapid forest clearance. They are found on CITES
Appendix II. There are flocks living in both Florida and California which can be seen in company of the wild Amazon Parrots.

It's Alex.
We have new neighbors. A huge flock of Mexican Red Headed Amazons have taken up residence in the tall trees around our house. There must be over 100 of them. You sure can tell when they arrive. Talk about noise! The other evening dad went out and took pictures of them. They haven't visited our backyard feeder yet but dad's hoping they will.
Yesterday, while mom was at the police station, dad vacuumed all the floors and carpets and by the time he was finished it was time to pick mom up. When they got home dad fixed bunless hamburgers. This time there was hardly any smoke but the burgers sure did smell good.
Today is free movie day so mom and dad will be gone for a while but we're hoping they will be home after the movie. We hate Lockdown.
Today will be clear and hot, with a high of 90 and a low of 65.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Alex.

  Hi Chyna
It's nearly your hatchday! I think we should celebrate by getting our talons done with designs. I told SP I'd get lilies today and you and she can pick whatever designs you want. It's exciting! We can both party for both days if you want.
It is a gorgeous day today! I think it's the best one of the week. Tomorrow we're supposed to get thunderstorms again. Usually by this time in July the grass is brown and dry, but everyone has green grass still. Mom has some grocery shopping to do, but it can wait. She needs to buy fresh fruits and veggies, but we have enough to tide us over for a few days. Today is definitely a pool day, and tonight mom and her sister will go to a Japanese restaurant for dinner. Mom bought a groupon a few weeks ago and wants to use it before it expires. Tonight will also be cage cleaning night, so we all have to be prepared to fix up our homes as soon as mom is done destroying them.
I hope you are having a bright and beautiful sunny day and getting lots of attention that you deserve. Hugs, Falco

  Hi, Chyna
Not sure but mom thinks she heard that areas north of us might get rain today. Hopefully some parts of CA get some. Since dad hasn't watered the back lawn it is mostly dead so he rototilled it to alleviate any fire issues. First had to repair the tiller as it needed cleaning and new spark plugs. Furball isn't thrilled having dirt for a potty now.

Hopefully that recall isn't too time consuming to repair but know it is annoying to be without the vehicle yet again.

Well, one more day till your hatchday and be awesome for the weather to cooperate to give you lots of patio time.

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

It's a shame that Cappy is so unpredictable. Mom wouldn't trust him with anybody. This time mom and dad were sitting quietly and the TV wasn't on and Cappy just attacked like a light switch being turned on. I suspect if this continues much longer Cappy may find himself in even an unhappier place because daddy is only going to take so much abuse. Mom already thinks he is a saint for what he has put up with. Have a great day. Hugs. V4U.

4) You just attempted to do it.

6) You are laughing at yourself.

7) You have a smile on your face and you skipped No. 5.

8) You just checked to see if there is a No. 5.

9) You laugh at this because you are a fun loving person & everyone does it too.

10) You are probably going to send this to see who else falls for it.

You have received this blog because I didn't want to be alone in the idiot category. Have a great Day. Laugh, and then Laugh and sing.

  Sweet Chyna Girl,
I love you so much...

I am glad that you got to have such nice weather so you can go out on the patio with your mom. Wouldn't it be nice if summer would last forever but alas it won't unless we all move to somewhere warm like Florida...

That's too bad that your mom got another recall on her Escape, the parronts got a letter today saying that there was a recall on the 06 vette but we don't have it anymore so no worries here.

Dad relaxed again today but mom worked...she deep cleaned Napoleon and Rosie's houses today and then she changed all the papers in the rest of our houses. She also made all of our breakfasts of course. Mom decided to clean the washing machine too...

I know you will get lots of toys on Wednesday, cause you deserve them. I am wanting some hatchday cake...my beak is watering just thinking about it...

  Hi Chyna
i can imagine how upset your mom is hearing those awful chainsaws roaring away. most people only care if they can make a buck on something. i see it time and time again that all the old oaks surrounding homes that people buy are what enticed people to the house in the first place and then before you know it the first thing they do is saw them all down and then plant a tree that is only a foot high. parks were originally built to be tranquil beautiful, esthetic ,natural places. now when they talk of making an area a park it actually means it will have ball fields and playgrounds. no area for wildlife or plants or nature or trails for people to hike to observe everything.

  Heya, Miss Chyna!
No way am I scared in the car wash! I love all the water, and it doesn't get me wet. Not bad!

We are due up for hot and humid tomorrow. It was lovely here today, with a wonderful breeze and not as humid as they predicted. Would be lovely if things are nicer tomorrow, but at least one day was hot and NOT humid! Even though it was warm, Mom took her walk down to where she can see the lake, and that haze over the horizon sure seems like we are gonna get that icky weather. Good day for sailing--Mom wishes she were out there on the boat!

Hope you are having a great evening, and sending big wing hugs your way!

Well dads saga continues with another ear piercing from Cappy. Poor daddy. Needless to say Cappy in lockdown again until dad calms down. Daddy is really starting to loose patience with him. He has been with us almost three years and these attacks on dad seem out of the blue. Drs think dad didn't have a stroke but a high blood pressure spike and inner ear issue. Dad is getting an EEG tomorrow ... Not sure what that is supposed to test. Have a great day. V4U. Hugs.

It sure seems like its been a lot worse then it has been before on BC so hope they fix it soon!
I have been going to bed a bit earlier then I was before so guess the days are getting shorter mom says. Last night I just got on my perch to wait for mom to cover me for the night and the dog next door started to bark. If I wasn’t so tired I would of gotten up on that windowsill and barked back at him like I do in the day time when he is out. Finally he must of went in the house and I gave mom a kiss good night and she covered me for the night. ”Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forward”. Leaving a vote for you!!

Birdieville is more like FB to us and we don't like FB,I sure hope that something happens soon and they change their minds about kicking us all off BC,if only they would fix it and let us stay here!I would sure miss the derby if we could no longer have it!
It was another busy day for Mom even though she was home with us all day,while my dad was outside scraping paint on the trim of the house so he could paint it with fresh purple paint that my Mom bought a month or two ago! Mom was going through more stuff to take to the donation places and to the dump and recycling places.It was a cloudy,on the cool side day but yet humid if you were out side working!It was 72 degrees and the sun never came out until 4:30 this afternoon.Mom decided that as she was waiting for dinner to heat up she would take us all out on the deck to get some sunshine as we haven't been outside for several days.It was good to be able to watch all the wild birds come and go all around us!
Mom will be home for one more day before she goes to Zumba on Wednesday morning and then her errand runs with Nana and skin sis so I'm taking advantage of every moment that I can!At least my dad will be here all week so we won't be totally alone while Mom is gone all day!
BC is so aggravating when it just won't quit all the nonsense and the blogs being eaten by those annoying squawkatiels is enough to make you scream!Mom will remember to put her city and state for the Skype sign up,hopefully if dad has some time in between scraping and painting he can help my Mom get this thing started!Mom is anxious to be able to chat with your sweet Mom as are Dixie and I!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses my sweet Chyna Doll!Loving you always and forever,Kallie

Well, I nearly didn't get a sunbath today, and this time it wasn't my fault (really!). The clouds were covering the sun first thing this morning, so it wasn't warm enough when Mom left for the gym and her trainer and zumba class at 10. When she got home at 12:30, she thought it might be too warm, but I made it clear I really wanted to go outside. So we did, but we just stayed for 25 minutes. When we came back in I didn't want to leave my carrier and stayed in there and played for a while. Who would believe I used to be afraid of that thing?

Mom is making chicken gumbo for dinner, so this will be a short blog. She has to keep adding things to the pot. Since I really like the stuff, I guess I can't complain. Oh! And I did get peach for breakfast, but I don't like it.

  Hi Chyna
Hello everybirdie, Zeena here to start this week with one of the worlds most well known Parrots. Today we stop to visit the Senegal Parrots and their mutations. I wish to thank you all for your greyt support and daily votes in my quest to earn the Title of Bird of the Month for August.
Over the last 30 years as many as 3 million wild Senegal parrots have been removed from the wild – 811,408 CITES Export permits have been issued since 1975. Unregulated trade in African parrots peaked in the 1980s and ’90s, and still exists today. This lucrative black market industry is fueled by profiteering middlemen who exploit wild bird populations. In 2005, the Senegal parrot was the most traded bird on the CITES Appendix II, with an average of over 45,000 individuals being removed from the wild each year. Today, African parrots remain among the most traded species on earth.
The Poicephalus parrots, including Senegals, Red-bellied and Myers etc are among the hardiest parrots on earth being able to survive in the harsh, African subtropics. All of their ranges are under serious pressure from the booming charcoal industry, out-of-control commercial logging , burning by local people for pastures and agriculture, as well as climate change. Deforestation rates on the continent are now twice that of the rest of the world. Africa has lost one half of its old-growth forests and forest restoration has become absolutely essential to save endemic forest bird species.
Long-lived forest specialists like Senegal parrots and rose-ringed parakeets are particularly sensitive to forest degradation. The added pressure of the wild-caught bird trade is often catastrophic, resulting in local extinctions in many Africa countries. Meyer’s parrots have all but disappeared from South Africa, African grey parrots are no longer seen in Kenya or Tanzania, Ruppell’s parrot and the brown-headed parrot have disappeared from much of their ranges in Namibia and Mozambique respectively, and the Cape parrot is only found in small forest refuges in the high mountains. Anyone who has traveled by road in Africa will tell you that every time you are in or near a forest you will start seeing parrots in cages or with their feet tied up on the roadside. Africa is exporting its parrots, its wildlife, its birdlife, its natural heritage,at alarming rates.
The Senegal Parrot is now extinct in many of it's ranges. The only way to stop this trade in wild-caught Parrots is to refuse to purchase birds that are not born in captivity.
Many devoted Senegal breeders have been working with a few unique mutations that have appeared in nestboxes starting in the early 1990's. These rare and beautiful mutations are still expensive and normally available only to other breeders, they include the yellow, pied, opaline, dilute and cinnamon. Regardless of color Senegal Parrots will remain one of the most common family pet birds kept the world over.

Mom didn't have her camera, so no pics. Maybe she can get her sister to send her one, though.
Just a quick note today to let you know we're thinking of you. Mom cleaned the skunks, foxes, groundhogs, and coyotes today, all outdoors, and very muggy, so she was happy to get to the pool. We need her tonight, though, so we're making her hurry up with our blogs. Hope you are having a wonderful summer day with lots of love coming your way. Hugs, Falco

Our house has a long story to it!It was originally my Nana's and Papa's house and my Mom and her sister went there on weekends in the summer(summer place)and on vacations.It started off as a four room house,two bedrooms,a bathroom,dining area and kitchen and cellar,but you could only get to the cellar from the bulkhead which was outside.Then Nana and Papa as soon as they saved the money would add on another room,the first room was the sunken living room(tv room)then the following year or two later,it was the pantry,another year or two later,came the two car garage,then the Florida room just outside of the sunken living room,then back on the other side of the house by the front door was the mud room and another room which became their bedroom,so Mom and her sister could have their own rooms.Then when Mom married dad,they had just had their own house built in Marshfield,Papa offered my dad a deal on our house here and he took it right away,the two car garage sold him on it,well,we were here a year and Mom was having skin bro and skin sis had the one bedroom so skin bro went in with her,it was so small it could barely fit his crib and her bed.Then when skin sis was in 1st grade skin bro would keep her up all night crying so she told mom to get him outta there,so it was time for Mom to do something so she had the whole second floor added on,two nice sized bedrooms and another full bathroom!They changed the Florida room to an all glass sun room and the eggstra room behind the mud room became a play room.Then everything changed again,the glass in the sunroom roof was cracked,the ones on the wall side spider webbed and shattered,so Mom yet again changed that back into a regular room with regular windows and a real roof!As the skin sibs got older skin sis moved out of her bedroom(which is now our Bird Room)into the room behind the mud room and skin bro had the room upstairs across the hall from mom and dad!We have 11 rooms,not very big but are filled with all the skin sis's junk!Thats just the thing what you said if they ever move out!Skin bro finally moved out of Nana's house after nearly two years and he still has junk there all over her house that he's got to get rid of so she can have her house back again and cleaned up!
It was a sunless day here for us 72 degrees but it keeps looking like rain again,it really poured last night!Everything is still so damp and wet,so there's no out side time for us again today.
That Art in the Park sounds quite interesting!How does one get picked to view all the stuff they have in the booths?I can imagine how eggspensive things must be there though! How awesome that your parronts got to see another polo match! I sure do hope you get to have lunch on the patio,I sure miss having my time out with my parronts on the deck!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses for my sweet Chyna Girl!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

  Hi Chyna
It's Alex.
The bricks are mostly done. Dad just needs to even them out but hasn't figured out how even he wants them. Dad's not a gardener or a landscaper so it takes him awhile to get things looking good.
Last night dad tried the charcoal side of the new grill. Holy cow! There was so much smoke that you would have thought the house was burning down. Dad had to open the garage door to get all the smoke out of the breezeway. The Charcoal got hot enough to cook on in no time at all and dad grilled chicken thighs. Mom made a marinade with fresh lemons, fresh garlic, thyme, cumin and fresh ground pepper. Boy did it smell good. Dad hadn't cooked with charcoal in over ten years but he did a good job. The chicken was cooked perfectly and tasted "Out of this world". We were already in our sleep mode for the night but we'll get to try the leftovers. The charcoal stayed hot forever. Dad went out at 10pm to check his lights and it was still too hot to dump the coals. Dad learned from his last job that coals can stay hot for 24 hours.
Dad also installed a window fan in the garage. Mom thought he was crazy. In the summer the garage stays hot forever. The fan will help cool it down so dad can work. Oh, aren't all humans crazy?
Mom may work at the police station today. Dad wants to clean up the work bench in the garage. It looks like his tool box threw up on it.
Today will be clear, with a high of 85 and a low of 63.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Alex.

  Hi Chyna
Actually it's a target to make sure she can hit it.

I played with mom in the afternoon, and she let me run all over her. Well, she sure learned a lesson. Next time she has to put a towel of something on her shoulder, or she'll end up being used as a potty place. Hey when a kid has to go, they have to go.

  Hi darling dear Chyna, from Jenny & Ziggy
...let's just enjoy our Summer and let the rest lie where it will, and tell mom to stay away from bees, hornets, and wasps! It looks like our heat and humidity will be cranking up for the next couple of days, no big deal, it is after all late July! Limon comes out of his cage first thing every morning and is out all day, he is so sweet when when makes a few whimpers and grooms himself, what a pleasure he is! This is busy Monday for us, but we don't have a lot on the 'to do' list! I hope the start of your week is going well, I wish for you a happy, peaceful, and productive week, & give my love to all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow...

Love from Jennifer, Ziggy, & our Dallas family

PS~We love you guys vey much...

  Hi, Chyna
The tiny bit of rain we got the other night did not soak the ground as it was perfectly dry when mom left for work the next morning. That would've helped the lawn and plants. Continues warmish here but with temps no more than very low 80s not bad. 70s is still great summer temps. Enjoy those patio lunches while you can.

Our mom's family is all over CA and so is dad's immediate family but his eggstended family (cousins, etc.) are all back east as that's where his parronts were from.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Hi sweetie,
dad got all his 6 passes in and got his papers signed, now mom has to put it all together with his physical and of course a check...she has to send the originals so she'll make copies of all the paperwork just in case.

Dad made a total of 8 runs yesterday. They were very close together and dad got very tired, his 5th and 6ths runs were not very good so he had to make 2 more. He told them he needed to rest and after a rest he made his last 2 passes to complete the requirement. Dad ended up making himself sick...over heated and at the point of total exhaustion. Their friends at the track help mom and dad pack up and put the bike away and that was a good thing cause dad wouldn't have been able to do it. Dad managed to get them home safe and sound but he had a lot of camps in his legs, arms, and even fingers; when they were finally home dad got really sick, he had the dry heaves as soon as he got out of the truck.

Dad felt better after a nice hot bath and mom gave him a heating pad to put on his legs and that really helped. He even got a good nights sleep. He was still really tired today and didn't do much but get the bike out of the trailer with mom's help.

Mom took care of all of us last night...we did get our nite nite snacks before we had to go to bed. We did get to stay up really late...11:30 pm...we are night owls.

Mom didn't do much on the computer at the track as it seemed like she would just get settled and then it was time for dad to make another run...normally, she uses this time to catch up...not this time though.

Mom just can not take the heat like she used so she was really tired as well yesterday and again today. She did do a few things...she got us all fed and we got to stay out a long time and dad was in our room watching the NHRA drag races.

I loved spending time with you and it is always fun to be with you when your parronts are away and we have time to ourselves.

That is good the parronts had a good time at the reunion and then off to the polo match the next day...busy parronts...

Hugs and kisses,love, Scoober ♥

  Hi Chyna
moms wearing her back brace and its taking pressure off her leg so her leg doesn't hurt as much. mom looks like a dork with the back brace on.we thought this was interesting and want to share it with you.

Moths are among the most diverse and successful organisms on earth. In fact, scientists estimate there are more than 150,000 moth species worldwide! Move over butterflies, moths come in bright colors and dazzling patterns. Species can take a myriad of shapes and can be as small as a pinhead to as large as an adult’s hand.
here are five awesome (and often little-known) facts about these winged wonders.
1. Some moths don’t have mouths. For example, the beautiful Luna moth does not have a mouth — so cannot eat — and will live only for about one week, with the singular purpose of mating!
Luna moth
2. Moths are great impersonators. Many moths have evolved to imitate other animals as a way to deter would-be predators. The Polyphemus moth has bold eyespots to startle and confuse those looking for a moth snack. The hornet moth looks just like a hornet, but is completely harmless. The beautiful wood nymph, a moth that has evolved to look just like bird poop.
Wood nymph
3. Moths love a good microbrew. Interested in trying your hand at mothing? Nothing attracts these guys like beer. A tip from our scientists: Mix a paste of beer, brown sugar, and banana. Paint it on some trees, kick back and relax, then check back in the evening with your flashlight to see the multitude of moths you’re sure to attract.
Attracting moths... with beer!
4. Moths can turn bears into tigers. We’re all familiar with wooly bear caterpillars — but did you know this bear can turn into a tiger? Yep, the wooly bear emerges from his cocoon in the spring as a lovely Isabella tiger moth. Fun fact: Once a cocoon is spun, the caterpillar turns into a mushy soup during metamorphosis before emerging as a moth.
Moth metamorphosis
5. The death’s-head hawk moth has a serious claim to fame. He got his start in Bram Stoker’s Dracula, then went on to leading roles in both The Silence of the Lambs and The Mothman Prophecies. This famous moth gets its name from the scull-shaped pattern on the thorax, and has the unusual ability to emit loud squeaks when irritated.
