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 ~ Merry Christmas

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.

  Heya, Miss Chyna!
No sun here today.

Mom ran for groceries today, and we took a nice nap. I have head feathers that needed preening, so I woke Mom up and hooked my beak on her lower teeth, and she gave me a heavenly head scritch! I love that--and when I want to have her scritch a new spot, I move my butt in a little dance to the left or right so she can get the spot. Smart, huh?

Looks like we have rain coming then snow...1-4 or 3-5 inches depending on who is telling the weather, on Christmas Eve. Guess we could not avoid it forever.

Your buddy,
Kaji

  Hi Chyna... TiPaul here
Mom and Dad went to their Christmas dinner and came back with a Christmas music CSD, made by the guy at the restaurant. He is a fantastic singer and has made a few CD's in the past, of which Mom has already. he sings in English, French and Italian. She and her girlfriend were both given a CD tonight, and Mom was so happy. It is playing now in the background while we are writing to all my friends. Mom will go back tomorrow to get our turkey bones. They will be making the soup tomorrow and we get all the leftover bones. It looks like we will have our own party. mom says the meal was delicious - she is so full, that even with dancing, she said she cannot go to sleep yet - she is stuffed! I told her that is good... I have more friends to write to. See you tomorrow.

  HELLO FROM FINNEGAN
Hi Chyna,
I'm sorry that I haven't been arond much lately. It's been a hard month for Momma with Daddy in the hospital and more surgery again. He's been home now for about nine days, but Momma has to give him lots of attention and take him to many doctors' appointments, AND skin bro was here visiting last week which was wonderful! And poor Momma is exhausted. Just when she thinks she could blog at night when we're all in bed, she's so tired that she falls asleep at the computer, sometimes even at the dinner table! So she needs to go to bed.
Love & Big Hugs from Your Friend, Finnegan♥

We had some sun here today for about an hour if even that but it was nice to see it at least!
Mom has been working on this one baby afghan for a while. Tonight she decided it didn’t look right on the one side and kept looking at it and wasn’t happy. She tore out about 10 rows she had done so now she has a lot more on this afghan to do to catch up where she was. Mom said its best to tear it out when you see the problem then to keep going on it and eventually have to do that anyway. Its all single crochet stitches so a slow process too. “One small crack doesn’t mean you are broken, it means you were put through the test and you didn’t fall apart.” Leaving a vote for you my friend~~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Chyna
the budgies were very very bad today. they escaped from their cage while mom was cleaning it and feeding them this morning. mom immediately thought she locked the cats in the bedroom and the doggie in the office. somehow the cats got out of the bedroom and while mom was trying to grab the cats to get them back in the bedroom the budgies flew over and landed on Coris cage. all mom could think of was budgies with no more feet. when she got them off Coris cage their flew over and landed on mine and i was ready but not as fast as mom who was running around like a maniac trying to catch them. finally after mom and the budgies were exhausted pidddy landed on moms head and mom grabbed paddy and got them into their cage. bad bad budgies.

mom was reading something very interesting today. a group of scientists from the netherlands have developed a mushroom that eats only plastic. they developed this to try and take care of the huge amounts of discarded plastics floating around in giant floating piles in our oceans today. most of the discarded plastics are from the united states.. the scientists say it will be many years of testing before they can determine if the plastic eating mushroom would be edible by humans. since many plastics are now used in shampoos and makeup mom had a disturbing thought. as a young girl in the 50s she saw a movie called attack of the mushroom people. it was about a group of travelers who had been stranded on this island with no food. they found these delicious mushrooms that staved off their hunger but the more they ate the faster they actually turned into mushrooms themselves. mom was terrified to eat any mushrooms for fear she would turn into one. now she has to worry if the mushrooms will attack her face because of the plastic in the makeup or attach themselves to moms hair because of the plastic in the shampoo. what if the plastic eating mushrooms form a gang and liberate the poor mushrooms grown on mushroom farms because they aren't being treated humanely. at least mom feels some sense of hope that some are trying to get rid of the huge piles of plastic trash and maybe being a mushroom might not be such a bad deal.

  Hi Chyna
On Christmas eve mom will be at her sister's house all day. That's where the family gathers. Then on Christmas day everyone goes to mom's brother's house. Mom does an open house on New Year's day for all the family and friends. They will have hot sausage sandwiches and lots of goodies at Aunt Renee's, then a nice dinner of (usually) stuffed shells and filet mignon at her brother's. Mom makes sauerkraut and pork for New Year's day, but serves a lot of other foods, too.
Sorry for the short blog today. Mom, her daughter, her sister, and her niece baked all the Italian goodies today, and did the peanut butter blossom cookies, too. Mom is totally wiped out, and it's nearly dinner time. She had hoped to do some laundry, but that's not gonna happen. Maybe tomorrow... Anyway I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of scritches. Hugs, Falco

Hi, and thanks for your daily visits and votes!
Today we are still downtown, very near the holiday square that we visited yesterday. The buildings and surrounding areas make up PPG Place. The skyscrapers are glass, and pretty impressive, but they have an ice skating rink set up outside right now in the plaza, you can see it with the tree up in my 5th pic. The 6th pic is without the tree, taken later in the winter. The 3rd and 4th pics show the buildings, and the first two pics show an interior space in the main building called the Wintergarden. It's a big, airy open space. Right now there are gingerbread houses in with the plants, but mom's pics are older. They decorate for Christmas every year, too.
I hope you are having a great day, and hope to see you tomorrow! Hugs, Peppino

Well, I am in with my mom dictating my blogs, but I suspect I will be banished back to my room shortly. No! I have not bitten her again, but I am climbing all over the desk and chewing on medical paperwork, which is a no no. She doesn't mind when I tunnel under it, but I can't seem to control my beak!

We did not have Chicken Bowl for dinner last night. Dad's company had their Christmas luncheon yesterday, and he brought home a bunch of scalloped potatoes that were left over and very good. Mom loves those, and it is one of the few things she has never successfully made. So she and Dad scarfed taters for dinner (I got some too!), and then they went to Chicken Bowl for lunch after grocery shopping this morning. I do love me some Chicken Bowl for lunch. Mmmmmm!

Still not warm enough for a sunbath today, but the weather geeks are calling for 73 tomorrow, and upper 70s on Monday and Tuesday. I call that sunbathing weather, and I bet I get outside. Unfortunately I will probably also get a nail trim some time in the next few days. Darn it! There always seems to be a down side to the up side!

  Hi, Chyna
Would assume that people who didn't live that close to a town would can and preserve enough for winter and stored it in the root cellar.

Does sound strange that it would be a longer trip to come to your area than for your parronts to drive downstate. Can always send 'em a pic of your snow.

Very hazy sun for us since it rained again. Not heavy but enough to get the ground wet and leave a few puddles.

Last night when mom got to work (midnight start time) there were still quite a few shoppers. The store didn't close until 2am! And there were still three shoppers! Then opened again at 6. Not too many shoppers at that hour but a couple and know it would get busy by 9 or 10.

Keep warm, wing hugs, beak kisses and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

  Hi Chyna dearling, from Jen & Zig
...in reference to our cards, most of you will be receiving them late, forgive us, they still hold all the love we can give you at Christmas time! Dad just got back from buying our Holiday Ham, and all of us will be munching on that puppy, it looks good! We are having a horrendous time with our Apple Mac Internet, we are hoping it will calm down after awhile, or it is back to visit dear aunt Denise, she can usually bail us out, pure genius, that one! We may drop off the BC for this moment in time, until it acts more user friendly for us, we'll see! Headed for Sugar's page while we still can, I think! Have a great day our dear friends, and give our love to all in your happy Christmas home, see ya tomorrow after sun up...

Forever love from Jenny, Ziggy, & our loving Dallas Flock, we are the real deal!!!

  Hi Chyna
Can you believe that we woke up this morning to snow? It was even covering our deck but it soon went away and is kind of drizzly out there and cold at 36 degrees.Mom was too tired last night to make our bean mix up so we had to wait for her to cook another batch up for us this morning and instead of bean mix(she ran out of it)she made us pastene pasta with eggs in it and oh was that sooo good! I chowed my bowl down in a heart beat and Mario,who hasn't had any interest in food for a week now or more came right down even before Mom could put the bowl down for him and he chowed right down!Mom got up at 4:50am this morning to give skin bro a wake up call and then went right back to bed and never got up til near nine and we were all waiting on her!But it was worth the wait as she gave us such a nice warm breakfast!Mom is going to spend the day catching up with the house chores and cleaning our cages good as she was out all day yesterday and then she's going to start wrapping presents for her sisters family and get that all done so she can just relax and get ready to start baking some things to bring to Nana's for Christmas.So far the forecasts here are for heavy rains and lots of it as much as 2 inches in some places or a little more.We don't mind the rain as long as its not freezing rain to take our daddy away from us on Christmas day.
Mom and I cherish the pic you sent us little or not!Mom only wishes she could've had the time to get some made up for all of us,she's going to see if she can do better next year and start earlier and not get so messed up in other things!
Mom doesn't like meat of any kind in her ravioli's,spinach is fine and basil,maybe parsley but nothing else!
Oh how I hate it when our condo's get cleaned out and then we have to spend all day just to get them back to the way we like them!Just imagine all that paper I meticulously chewed gone in an instant!I do hate it though when Kallie chews his paper and boxes and the debris comes right down into my condo,I don't want his mess there,I create nice chewed up designs where Kallie just rips everything with no thought of artistic designs!
Dixie settles down in bed quickly for Chyna to sing to him The First Noel another one of his favorites at Christmastime!A smile wraps around his beak and his eyes slowly close as Chyna begins,The First Noel,the angel did say....
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses!Loving you always and forever,my sweet Chyna Girl!Love,Dixie

It's Alex.
Yes, we received your Christmas flower order.
Yesterday dad put the nest boxes back on Blue and Jewel's and Skye and Rio's cages. Guess we're going to hear the pitter patter of little claws again soon. After that mom and dad went to WalMart. They picked up another McSandwitch maker and found some "Good and Plenty" candy. Dad hasn't had it in a million years. They also went to Costco and got some fresh fish for dinner. Mom took two big fillets and baked them. Then made a lemon Caper Butter sauce to spoon over them. Dad cooked some rice and steamed some squash. Guess they liked it cuz it's all gone now.
Today mom and dad have a play to see in Los Angeles so they'll be gone all afternoon.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 66 and the low will be 50.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Alex.

ahhhh . . . I am so excited about mom's vacation that I woke up extra early today ! From under my cover I started calling "hii" :) Since mom and dad are heading to the g'parronts today, I'll nap and catch up on my sleep then - After my nap I'll watch the wild birds outside or look at all my cards from my friends that mom hung on the hallway door where I can see :)

Mom met a couple friends for dinner last night and had to re-tuck me in when she came home - with kisses of course !

Have a wonderful day :) love Cookie

mom does a quick cleaning of our houses every day, so I totally understand what you mean about getting it back to how you like it. I patiently wait until MOm is finished, and then I go at it while she works on the other birds' homes. It is bitter cold here too, and is going to be that way for a couple of days. We have enough snow for a while, but are in for more too.

  Hi Chyna, my love,
mom hasn't posted the tree pictures yet, she couldn't get the disk to load on her laptop so she has to use her desktop and she didn't get it done yet. Last night her laptop quit working, she tried to do a restart on it but it wouldn't restart so mom didn't get any notes done. This morning she unplugged the laptop and ran it on the battery, then she took out the battery...put it back in and did a restart and it worked...she has no idea what was wrong but she is going to back up the computer and then do a restore back to the original factory settings.

I bet you get lots and lots of great things...lots of super toys with wood for you to chew...I bet your eyes will light up when you open them.

We saw the sun today as well, it was so nice to see it. Mom says it is very pretty when the sun shines on the snow...it sparkles like diamonds...

You got sun?Still no sun here and looking at the extended forecast there's no sun in that either.
Mom got out today to go shopping with her dad and have some lunch they had a nice time as its been a long time since just the two of them went out to do something.
I was naughty tonight and went into the kitchen to chomp on some wood while my mom was baking. When she had me step up I bit a hole in her sweater and ended up in a time out in my cage for awhile.
My mom got the tree up tonight but can't find the lights anywhere. She has no idea what happened to them as they aren't with the other Christmas decorations so now she has to go get more. It's always something I tell you.Have a good night.

Mom going to make popcorn too. We are finally ready to mom will be doing baking tomr but mot letting us help. She said on Sunday we can help with the Santa bird bread we will be leaving out for him. We all get to pick one thing to put in the bread. That might be a very interesting bread tehe. There will be 8 of us plus the finches. I and Little Foot a cockatiel belong to my older brother !

Yes the sun does look pretty glistening on the snow but we sure havent seen any sun for a good while here either.
Today mom was messing with making a card she has been working on for a while after she got her house work all done. Then this evening she decided to print out on this thinner paper with a saying on it. The first one came out fine but the second one got stuck in the printer! Mom worked for a good while and then dad came with all his tools to see what he could do with it. After about 3 hours dad got the paper out of the rollers and plugged back in. He ran one paper thru and it was a bit dirty and at this point mom isn’t about to even try it again!!

  Hi Chyna
My Mom doesn't like meat in her ravioli's and if it is it has to be the homemade sausage that my Nana makes,it doesn't taste like regular sausage and has a distinct delicious flavor to it,Mom just loves to eat that plain,but she most definitely prefers her ravioli to be just cheese!She has seen some in the grocery store that has butternut squash,even lobster or some kind of fish in them,EWWW,not for Mom or me!
It was a bright sunny morning here and the temperatures were 35 and it was freezing.Mom got us up early again and cleaned our cages,fed us and then dad helped Mom put the trash she collected in her car along with some other things and then she collected Dixie and got him in his carrier and wrapped him up In a warm blanket and put him in the car that dad had already warmed up for Mom,and off to Nana's they went.Dixie got to stay with our cousin Trixie II while Mom and Nana went to the dump,Post Office,then to Walmart,Michaels,and Shaws,then they went to Stop&Shop and got a few things there and then by the time they got back to Nana's house it was 4 O'clock and getting dark.Mom got all the groceries loaded in her car and then came back and got Dixie and they came home where Mom had to get Dad some dinner,clean out our cages,feed us our snack and put all the groceries away.While Mom was gone all day my dad put the purple lights in the dining room window and do they look just awesome!
My Mom was going to make our pictures to send out but that never got done,she ran out of photo paper and couldn't get the kind she likes.We are supposed to get some kind of storm here for Christmas Eve and Mom and Dad are keeping track of it and we are all praying that it won't be anything but rain and no snow!Mom and I want to have a Christmas this year!
Dixie puts his feet up so Chyna can put his soft braces on and cover him up so she can sing him another song!As Chyna start to sing Silent Night,Dixie's eyes slowly close,he fights so hard to stay awake to hear her pretty voice and see her pretty face,but sleep overtakes him.....
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
Well, I am happy to report that I have been a good boy so far today, and no biting since yesterday's disaster. Now I am in my room for another reason altogether. I took a bath in my water bowl, and Mom wants me in the warmest room in the house till I dry off. I keep calling her, but I want her to come in here not for me to leave. Not working out too well so far.

Mom went to the gym this morning, and since she was verrry sweaty when she got home after training and zumba she needed a shower. However she came in to sit with me first, since I was calling her. She had to wear her summer bathrobe too, since her warm winter one is bright red and I would freak out immediately. I wonder why so many of us hate the color red? It must be something dangerous in the wild that is bred into our feathers. Anyway I got Mom time, then she got her shower and then I got more Mom time. Now I just need to dry off!

  Hi, Chyna
Guess plowing in the cold three times a day would be very tiring but good that he is able to do it so the family isn't stuck inside the house. Must've been difficult in the olden days to keep things clear.

We won't miss a white Christmas but can understand why some others would since it does look pretty. Guess if your dad's family wants it and doesn't have it in their area can always visit your house.

Not much sun for us today as it rained a bit and was mostly cloudy. We are supposed to have clear weather for Christmas.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

Mom still has to wrap things and get the baking done, but one day at a time, we're getting there.
This morning mom went to the center as usual, and was assigned the squirrel porch and the squirrel pens. Needless to say, she had her new coat on, not thinking of working outside. So she hung up her coat and got one of the ghillie suit coats to wear while she worked. It was really cold outside, or she'd have gone out in just her sweatshirt. Haha, I bet the squirrels never saw her coming! She was disguised as a bunch of leaves, haha. There are 19 squirrels spending the winter outside this year.
After she got home her sister called her to go to the Italian store to buy food for Christmas eve. So, we are here after 3:30, just starting our blogs. At least Peppino went first, and his are done.
That's all the news for now too, so I hope you are having a wonderful day full of anticipation of Santa Bird coming to visit you, and being so very good. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Chyna
Thanks for your votes every day! I love hearing from you.
Today we are in Market Square, in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh. Every Christmas season it turns into a Holiday Marketplace, with booths set up for buying locally made crafts and artworks, food booths and tables for the people brave enough to sit outside and eat, a house for Santa to stay in and see the children, and even a stage where locals can perform music, theater, and dance. It's a fun place to visit during the holidays, and it sure brightens up the downtown area for everyone. It has become a destination for some, along with decorated store windows, and the replica of the Vatican nativity scene on Steel Plaza.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of love. Hugs, Peppino
