Mr SKY & the lovely MISS BIG BABY (BB) are to be wed in JANUARY 2014
date to be announced
Baby is the LOVE-OF-MY-LIFE- , and always will be.

THE SPOTLIGHT ON CARING blogs will resume in November 2013 with Polly & Zippy



Sky was a bird that was extremely abused early in his life. He sustained many injuries that where never treated.
At 2 years old SKY was rescued and went to live in a parrot rescue near London, Ont. He lived there for 7 years. It became necessary to rehome SKY into a forever home with someone who would accept and make allowances for his disabilities. By chance I saw something regarding Sky on the internet and decided to check it out. I am so glad that my curiosity brought us together. HE is a true gentleman and a spokes bird about abuse and rescues.
He travels around Eastern Ontario where he & Momma Deb speak to people or groups about humane bird care, about abuse and about bird rescues etc.
HE is a home town celebrity, with people stopping in to visit with him regularly.

We're still very cold after another day of mother nature teasing us yesterday. We've only had a couple feet of snow this whole year, the problem is it's been so cold, it's still here ! Every flake ! Daddy says not to get too excited yet though - historically, our biggest storms have all been in March !

We had snow this evening--nothing too heavy. Just enough to make a mess. We have had a very easy winter, but they are talking the big storm might hit us on Tuesday. Guess we will have to wait and see. Might be closer to normal temps, too--it has been so darn cold here, it is not funny.

Not much else happening. Just glad Mom is home and I got my head scritches.

  Hi mr. Sky
Truly a happy humpday ! RT hit my 30k this morning ! Although it is exciting, I must say the friendships forged here are so much more important to my little green heart !

We're supposed to hit freezing today ! I don't think it's going to melt anything though . . . at least there's nothing more than flurries in the forecast for the next few days :)

I've been very cranky the last few days - between hormones and pin feathers, I've been squawking a lot ! Mom tried to get me to take a bath last night, but I don't want anything she does ! ha !

Have a great day and if you get a chance to play Name that Tune (231616) go give it a wing ! But dress warmly, it's chilly over there ! LOL ! love Cookie

Same old cold. With snow showers this morning. And fierce wind. What can I say? We must be in a real rut, and Mom and I are so desperate to get some warmth. Sun had a bit of warmth to it but that wind just made things super cold. Oh yeah, and damp cuz of the lake.

  Hi Sky
Thanks for the great St. Pat's pics go to Aunt Rose once again. She always comes through for us.
We are in the deep freeze again, not that we ever got out of it. Most of the schools around here had a delay today from the cold temps. They were warning people to cover themselves well if they had to go out this morning. When mom walked the dogs, though, it didn't feel that cold. Of course she waited until 9:30, so that probably helped. The dogs' outdoor tie outs have cracked in several places because of the weather, so I guess mom will be buying new ones already.
Nothing much going on today, mom will run some errands and tend to laundry before washing all the cages later on. We've been using Poop Off for years, which works just fine. It's a bit pricey, though, so if anyone has a better alternative, we're open to suggestions.
I hope you have a great day today. Stay warm, and get lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

Mom's first day back went pretty well and she came home to the BirdTalk magazine in the mailbox ! She ordered it just a couple weeks ago with her BC points ! There's an article about cockatiels written by my vet - so far all she's done is look at the pictures. By the time she got home and we played some, it was time to start dinner. Besides she wants to savor it . . . she really misses the monthly BirdTalk :(

Then the accountant's office called and the taxes are ready ! Daddy will go pick them up today - mom is hoping she can not only get a new sofa and loveseat, but maybe coffee table and end tables ? Wings crossed ! Maybe even, if I cross my toes too, some new toys ?

Have a wonderful Tuesday ! love you ! Cookie

Not much going on here--we have the same old cold/wind and snow showers on the way. Mom wishes it would just get a bit warmer, and the cold would go back up to Canada. Still we are luckier than so many others who have piles and piles of snow, or ice or whatever. Still it sure would be wonderful to have a glimpse of spring, wouldn't it?

Stay warm, and get some good Mom time and lots of head scritches!

  Hi Sky
Our weather is clear but cold today. It's great to see the sun, even if the air is cold.
This morning mom cleaned the recovery room. It was interesting, because of the variety of animals in there. There were 3 snapping turtles, 2 box turtles, a canvasback duck, a Canada goose, a barred owl, a Cooper's hawk, and a broad winged hawk. It was one of those days where the room was short of supplies, so mom had to gather newspaper, paper towels, daily care sheets for some of the charts, and make fresh disinfectant spray for the cages. The Coopers hawk got loose, and mom had to move a bank of cages to get it to fly to where she could net it. Always an adventure there! After the center mom picked up Lena and they went to the Smiling Banana Leaf for lunch. It's a Thai restaurant near where Lena lives. It was quite tasty, too. Then mom picked up a few things at the Giant Eagle, including her prescriptions, and went to the bookstore to order some new reading material.
Now she's back and ours for the day! Once she finishes our blogs and showers, that is. I hope you are having a great day, staying warm and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

Jeeezze ! Mother Nature sure did tease us yesterday ! The sun was shining, the temps were up to 36, and although I can't tell, I think some snow melted ! Now this morning it's -2 waking up and only hitting the teens . . .

Back to work for mom today - she had a terrific vacation. It was everything a vacation should be - relaxing, stress-free and best of all, it had lots of quaker time in it ! Hopefully, the kids all had the same kind of time so that they're ready to work again :) I know she'll be tired coming home this first day back so I'll be ready !

Guess we are back to the deep freeze again. Wonder when the big blast from up in Canada will come to an end and we can at least stay around 30 for more than a blink?

Nice day with Mom. Nothing much special, just a great day of watching her work, and chase after the balls I throw on the floor when I want her attention. Love watching her go after them!

  Hi Sky
Congratulations on your win last night. We all love that pic of you and BB!
It was a harrowing drive to and from mom's daughter's house last night. There had been snow until about 4, then it changed to rain, and of course, ice on the roads. Dinner was great, mom only contributed saffron rice, and her daughter made lemon chicken, asparagus, and a lovely salad. The birthday cake was spectacular, it came from a French bakery, it was light and had fresh red raspberries between each layer.
The milonga was a lot of fun last night, and we congratulate all the winners. We got kicked off for about 15 minutes, but other than that, we had a blast. Thanks once again to Kiddo, Taz, and Chyna for her beautiful voice. Thanks also to Spot, Pearl and Silver for playing some good dance music as well.
Today mom is working at the museum, so we are hoping the roads are less icy than they were when she walked the dogs this morning. I hope you are having a good day, staying warm, and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

It's still snowing ! The weather guessers said the temps were to rise overnight (they did - it's 27 now !), and the snow would change to rain. hmmmpf ! Our winter weather warning has been extended from 8:00 to noon . . . then the folks will head up to dig out the g'parronts, maybe have a little lunch and rush home to me ! Mom wants to have a quiet night to emotionally prepare for heading back to school tomorrow. She's an early morning riser, so it's not the getting up that's tough, it's the getting ready and out !

It was a great time last night at Milonga ! Congratulations to all the winners :) The only problem is the crowds - can never get to chat with everybird :(

Today it's snowing like crazy, must be 4 inches out there already, and it hasn't slowed down yet. Mom walked the dogs, and they all came back with a layer of snow on top of fur and mom's coat, hahaha. We are glad we don't have to go out in this. The wildlife center cancelled Raptor Handling training. Mom will stay in until it's time for dinner.
Tonight mom and the family are celebrating Lena's birthday with a dinner. Everyone was going to come here, but mom's daughter does not like driving her monster of a car in the snow, so now they're all going to her house. Lena will pick mom up, though, so it's less cars to try to park. Hopefully we will be back in time for the milonga, but if not, we will be there as soon as mom returns. I hope to see you tonight. Till then, stay warm, get lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

  Hi mr. Sky
Today was the coldest one so far ! ! So cold it hurts - but as mom said - you don't have to shovel cold ! So she did go out yesterday and get her feathers trimmed and pick up a few groceries since snow comes today - only 4-6 inches, and I know it's not much but YIKES ! More ?

Something really sad and disturbing happened here yesterday. I was just sitting with mom having a lovely head skritch and all the wild friends were outside on the patio eating, when all of a sudden a hawk flew in - right onto the patio, not 2 feet from the sliding glass door - and snatched up a blue jay ! Right from the porch ! ! ! Mom cried and hugged me tight, I squawked and daddy closed the drape . . . Although there are a lot of hawks around here, none has ever come in this close to the house ! We know that's nature's way, but we don't want to see it !

Hope to see you tonight at Milonga ! And I say hope with all capital letters ! We had some internet problems this morning and it took forever while daddy did a system restore . . . sigh. love you ! Cookie

Happy Chinese New Year (Tet) to everyone. Did you dance under the dragon at the KB yesterday?
Today it's really cold again, it was 0 when mom walked the dogs quickly around the block. They had a very short one today. At the wildlife center, mom cleaned the main aviary, which is full of pigeons right now, and did the bunny room. There are only adult eastern cottontails in there right now, and one of them charged at mom! She was surprised, because usually the bunnies are so scared they try to stay still so no predator can see them. Anyway, the chores there were done and mom ran some errands before coming home.
Today is Lena's birthday. Can you believe mom has a granddaughter turning 31? She herself only turned 21 this year, hahaha. Mom is having the family for dinner tomorrow, so she had to buy a few groceries. Then she went to the mall to get her vitamin supplements, and dropped off posters for the baby shower and summer camps at the supermarket, her nail place, and the vet's office. Now she's home with us, and after she finishes our blogs, she will finally finish making those bows for the Biscuits Bingo. Then she's ours for the day.
I hope you are staying warm, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

Well, it's not a TGIF here today ! Last day of mom's vacation - she goes back Monday and we don't count tomorrow or Sunday since those are days off anyway ! It was a nice relaxing one - I've gotten used to her being at my beak and wing ! I even had a nice bath yesterday, and splashed her good ! ! !

Of course it was too cold for her to go out and do much - today she is getting her feathers trimmed, but that's all ! Then it's just laundry and house cleaning. It's our last day of minus temps . . . back up to the 20's for Sat. and 30's and RAIN for Sun. ICK !

  Heya, Sky!
Well, it was bitterly cold this morning. Even worse than whatever we had before. I hafta say that I don't like cold. Mom doesn't either.

She went to the dentist, and for sure, she had a tooth that was getting ready to abscess. So the dentist drilled through her nice crown and cleaned out all three roots. Luckily it was not bad, and the novacaine froze it pretty good. She did feel some twinges though in one of the areas. And she needs a root canal. So they sent out a pre-authorization for it, and since she had an appt. for cleaning on April 6th, she made it for that day. She was going to take off anyway.

She is working from home cuz gosh, now that the freezing wore off, her mouth hurts. She is staying home tomorrow (already okayed).

Stay warm, and stay safe!

  Hi Sky
Mom and her sis went to Aunt Marge's funeral today, that's why we're so late getting here. It was touch and go getting to the funeral home yesterday, as it started snowing really hard when mom was ready to leave. Today mom and Aunt Renee just met everyone at the church, since it was closer to where mom lives than the funeral home. She will be missed, but she lived to the ripe old age of 97, so we sort of have to celebrate her life. Mom told everyone the story about how Aunt Marge took a fully cooked pot roast back to the butcher at the local supermarket and told him to feed it to his family, as it was too tough for hers. She actually got her money back! She used to tell mom if she waited long enough for something in the store, they would eventually be throwing it at people to get rid of it. That was the time to buy.
Anyway, it's really cold here, about 6 out there now, and going back down later today. Mom will go to the center tomorrow, but if it's this cold, she will come right back here after and spend the day with all of us.
I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches, and most of all, staying warm.

It's still cold here - we're going all the way up to 15 later today ! By Sunday it's supposed to be mid-30's and rainy ! ! ! Huh ?

Another day of relaxation with mom - although she is hoping to get an appointment for her feathers either today or tomorrow. She ran a couple quick errands yesterday, but otherwise played with her crafts - I love when she's home and kept calling for her to come and play with me instead !

Today mom is kind of relaxing for awhile, but later she has to go to the funeral home. It's the one day viewing for Aunt Marge, with the funeral tomorrow morning. Mom talked to Aunt Ginny today again and she's holding up well. They were laughing on the phone and chatting about all kinds of things.
Mom doesn't like sitting in the funeral home for long, so she'll go this afternoon, but not go back tonight. It's really neat that Aunt Marge had all this arranged from 2002. She had everything paid for, and all the service arranged, because she told the funeral director that she didn't want to stick her kids with any bills. Mom is thinking that's a great idea, so she will talk to someone soon, and make arrangements. She expects to be around for some time, but it's a good idea to have things taken care of.
Okay, enough with the morbid, it's time for bird talk. Has anyone redeemed points for the new annual Bird Talk magazine? We redeemed points, haven't received it yet, and are hoping it will be the 2015 edition. Mom says when she redeemed the points, it was still a picture of last year's magazine. It occurred to her after she pressed the key that it was an old picture. If anyone has received it from points, let us know.
I hope you are having a good day, staying warm, and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

  Heya, Sky!
It was about 15 here today, but the temps are dropping like flies. And when Mom came out of work, she noticed that it was snowing a little bit. By the time she got out of the parking garage, it was full blown SNOW. And it continued to snow, dropping maybe a half-inch of the stuff on the ground. And then just like that, it stopped. Just enough to make a mess. Now mind you, we are thrilled that it stopped, and that we don't have the 8 feet of it. We are heading to the big chill again, too. I so want to go someplace warm, and so does Mom.

So far so good today. No chewing up on Mom. She is so happy about that.

Stay warm!

  Hi Sky
Mom had a docent meeting to attend this morning, so that took up the first half of the day. They took a brief break for lunch, then mom and Tony, another docent, did training for the new class. Tony did biomes and talked a little about plants and climate, and mom did animal adaptations and talked also about a few plants. Mom had asked them to start her part in Bird Hall, and when they got up there, it was dark. One of the guys turned on the overhead lights, but the cases were still dark. Mom did the best she could, though. She talked mostly about beaks, feet, and leg placement, although she brought out a few things about sexual dimorphism (colors, long tails, etc. in males), and addressed a few anomalies. Of course everyone knows that male songbirds are more colorful than females, but did you know there is an exception? Yep, it's the female phalarope (there are a few species), and she is the more colorful because the males brood her eggs and raise her chicks. She mates with many males, lays an egg in each male built nest, and leaves! The guys are left with the kids and the responsibility! The other anomaly is that penguins have solid bones, more like mammals than birds, but they need that extra weight for diving.
After the birds, they talked about a few animals on the second floor, and mom showed them the touchable carts for Africa and North America. It was a fun afternoon, and they were done by 2:15, which surprised mom.
Anyway she's home now and ours for the rest of the day. It has gone all the way up to 21 degrees, feels like a heat wave. Even the street outside has melted, and you can see pavement again. After mom finishes our blogs, she will walk the dogs, then clean our cages, and play with us the rest of the evening. You know that tomorrow we will be rearranging our cages, right? We can do that while mom is at the funeral home.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Stay warm! Hugs, Peppino

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

  Hi Sky
It's snowing ! again - although daddy says we shouldn't complain, we have only a couple feet and we've never gotten more than 10 inches at a times (most of the times just 5-6 inches) - it's just not melting cause it's so cold !

The folks went to the g'parronts again yesterday to knock icicles and dig out from the last storm. I did notice that the days are staying lighter - they got home around 5:00 and it was still bright out ! They even brought home a box of clementines :)

love Cookie
