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.

Green-Winged Macaw

Sky loves bananas, cantaloupe and Macaroni with cheese, pizza, oatmeal, spaghetti, and everything food....

On the front porch with his Momma, and his play stand that he shreds weekly and has to be rebuilt.

Having his tail touch. He doesn't like his almonds to touch his walnuts in the bowl.

I love when Momma holds my feet so I can fly. I can't fly due to a injured wing but when she runs with me I feel like I could fly for miles

  Good morning Mr. Sky
Mom's vacation is over - if it only weren't for all the snow this past winter she'd still be home ! She's guessing though that there will be many kids out - family's planned vacations before the snow and won't be cancelling or coming home early . . .

Hopefully the weather will be better. Yesterday was bright and sunny, but only 50 and boy was it windy ! Dad and mom went walking and mom got back really quick cause of the blowing pollen aggravating her allergies !

Guess what ? Mom won a mini-grant from Cornell ! A whole birding kit to use with the kids - it has identification books, feeders, coupons for seed, suet, etc. and 10 pair of binoculars ! ! She can't wait to get it set up !

Sending healing hugs your way :) love Cookie

  Heya, Sky!
The sun was out today, but gosh, it sure was not warm at all. Only got to about 45. Then the clouds rolled in and we are supposed to get rain tonight and all day tomorrow. At least it is not snow! Mom and I had a nice day--I watched to make sure that the cable TV guy did not do anything funny when he came to check on the cable. Mom tried to watch the Brewers game last night and when she turned on cable, the box showed the numbers, but she did not see one darn thing on the TV. Just completely black screen. So she called to find out if it was out in her area, and the rep told her it was fine, but maybe her HDMI cable burned out. But this morning the cable was on just fine. Go figure. The cable guy made sure everything was fine, and told Mom that they probably were doing some work. The cable, the box and the TV are perfect. That makes Mom breathe a sigh of relief. And that guy was actually pretty nice. I did not have to attack him.

Happy (you KNOW what day it is!) Humpday!

  Hi Sky
Of course we understand, sweetie! Take the time you and mom Deb need to grieve. It's never easy losing a family member.
Today might be mom's last day blogging for a couple of days. Tomorrow is the surgery, and the follow up appointment is on Friday, so we may not be back until Saturday.
It got really chilly here today, not expected to get out of the low 40s, and there's a possibility of some snow flurries. I say SPRING is no time for snow! Phooey!
Mom cleaned the outdoor raptor mews and aviaries today then did the middle room of the hospital called the Runs. It's for a wide variety of animals, but there were all birds in there today, except for one snapping turtle. She hasn't done that room for awhile, so it was interesting to her.
Then she went to the grocery store to get our veggies and fruits, since she didn't go yesterday. (She and Lena had walked to lunch and back, so she had to come straight home to put in the eye drops the doc wants her to use.) After buying our goodies, mom went to the nail salon to get the polish removed from one nail on each hand prior to the surgery. Tonight she has to go back to the center for a class on animal medicine, but she's going to get some laundry done before she leaves.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of attention and maybe some sun and warm weather, too. Hugs, Willie

  Happy Humpday mr. Sky
Mom's vacation is almost over - she's staying home today though. Says she wants a day of peace before heading back to school tomorrow. Vacations aren't supposed to be all work ! And that's what they did - mom and dad spent a lot of it painting at the g'parronts - except for Monday - my day of doom ! ! It's taking a little getting used to walking around and not hearing my toe nails click, click, click ! But at least I still have my flight feathers :) YIPPEEEEEE

Have a great day and go play NAME THAT TUNE (page # 231616) if you get a chance ! love Cookie

Don't you just love it when you supervise your mom? I just love telling my mom what to do. When she is cleaning my cage....I lean down....get right up in my moms face and say....Do it! Heehee! Mom says if I'm so smart I should learn to clean my own cage! I think not!

  Hi Sky
Happy Earth Day! It's raining here, so the earth will be shooting up more flowers and green grass soon in celebration of her special day. Mom spotted some buds on the lilac this morning when she walked the dogs. Spring is here!
Today is a relaxing day for mom. She is will meet Lena and see her new apartment, then go to lunch with her. It's always fun to spend time with her grands. She will then do some shopping for us, fruits and stuff. Later she is meeting her sister to plan strategies for Thursday, the date for mom's surgery. They have to figure what time they're leaving and see exactly where the place is. It's an outpatient surgery center, not the hospital where mom thought it was. Most of the day is ours, though.
I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of love and scritchies. Hugs, Willie

  Morning Mr. Sky
Mom and dad are going to do some more painting at the g'parronts today . . . that means I'll be in lock down - me, with my wings still intact, can't go flying anywhere ! Mom says to watch it though, she can always make another appointment if my attitude gets too big ! I don't see what the problem is, if dad would just bring me a treat every time he goes to the kitchen I wouldn't have to chase him down !

Have a wonderful day my friends ! love Cookie

  Heya, Sky!
Today started out kinda nice--it was 70! The sun was out for a bit, but then went behind the clouds. Cold front came thru, and the temps dropped to the mid-60's. Started raining again, but no big storms or anything. And the sun came out around 5PM. Odd day, but very nice for me and Mom. She did laundry and looked for jobs. I kept her company on her shoulder. Perfect day as far as I am concerned!

Hope your Monday was magnificent!

  TiPaul sneaks in a
late night vote before perch time. Mom had a very busy weekend. On Saturday she went to a Cancer fundraiser where she used to dance and saw her old teacher who has cancer. Mom was happy to see her but so down about the fact that this might be the last time she sees her. Someone took a picture of them together... a lot of people were doing this. Yesterday Mom had two people come to help clean our cages and then Mom had time for our baths and our nails and just time for us. It was so good - and she even cooked Easter dinner. It was a full day bit a good one. Today was another busy day but she felt like she did not get as much done as she had wanted. Her friend came to pick up her birds that Mom had here for the weekend. Mom did their nails too and her friend said she did a really good job. The Eclectus sat there and just let Mom do his nails without a fight. Talk about a good bird. He likes his Auntie Paula. Well, see you tomorrow.

  Hi Sky
Well, yesterday was sure a success. The food was delicious, the company was a lot of fun, and mom even got a haircut in the middle of it all! Her colored deviled eggs were a huge success, so next year, she's going to make even more. They disappeared in a hurry. Some people weren't even here yet, so they never even saw them.
Three of us had a taste of the wedding soup and some salad, too. Falco didn't, of course!
Today mom picked up the eye meds she has to do before and after surgery. She also dropped off wedding soup to Mary at the nail salon. At the center, she did birds and the outdoor ground hog cage. There are some interesting birds in the avian nursery, a yellow bellied sapsucker, for instance. They are always fun to see up close. There are about 6 screech owls in there, too. Anyway, she's home and ours for the rest of the day! Hope you are having the bright sunshine we are getting today. We're supposed to go up into the low 70s, mom hopes that's true! Here's a hug for you, Willie

We sure hope everybirdie had a great Easter - I did ! Mom and dad got home by 7:00 so I had plenty of time to play :)

Today is the day of doom . . . if you hear a whole lot of squawking around noon est, it'll be me ! ! I've been trying really hard to NOT chase down either parront who heads into the kitchen . . . but I know that's where the treats are and if they have something, so should I ! ! Don't you think ? And why does it bother the folks so much ? To the point where they're contemplating clipping my wings ? NOOOOOOOO !
