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.

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

  TGIF mr. Sky
It's been a busy week here ! Mom had back to school night last night and didn't get home till 10:00 ! ! Of course she said good-night and re-tucked me in ! Daddy is a great pal and my favorite playmate, but he's not very good about tucking in ! I'm hoping for lots of Cookie time this weekend !

After school today though mom has to go buy a new shower/tub valve - ours just fell off ! The plumber says it's because we have hard water things just don't last . . . last spring it was the sink - sigh - always something :(

Have a lovely Friday - Cookie

  Hi Sky
The Verizon mess is sort of straightened out, but mom is still not happy. There's a popup about Java script every time she signs on, and it's annoying because it won't go away. The first guy she talked to told her over 700,000 accounts had been disabled, due to a breach in security, so hers was one of them. The second guy told her that her computer has a virus, in spite of the fact that we have Kaspersky installed, which is one of the best antivirus thingies out there. Since she had no problems with the rest of the computer, BC, AOL, she figured the first guy was right and the second guy not so much.
In case you missed the buzz yesterday, the vet found nothing broken, but I do have a huge wound on my side, possibly one I picked open when my leg was hurting. Mom can't see anyplace in my cage where I could have injured myself that badly. It's about 2 cm of open wound, with the skin that far apart. She said it would make no sense to try to stitch it, so just to apply a topical ointment to the spot. She was pleased that my leg is nearly healed, too. That wound was all around my leg, and is healed to about a 2 to 5 mm area of scabbing. Mom is putting the ointment on that, too. I am also taking oral antibiotics for 2 weeks, and have a follow up appointment next week.
Mom has an event to attend as a GUEST tonight at the center, how about that? Last year she was invited as a guest, but worked the event instead. This year, they told her to just come and enjoy.
It's another beautiful day in the neighborhood here today, lots of sun and warming as the day goes on. I hope you are having a good day and getting love and sunshine. Hugs, Falco

  Another Thursday morning !
and another lovely day ! We have been having perfect weather this week - 50's at night - high 60's during the day with lots of sunshine :) Mom doesn't even mind that she has recess duty today ! Except tonight is back-to-school night . . . that means me and daddy have to dine alone and daddy will be tucking me in . . . of course, mom will fix my cover when she comes home !

Silly mom is still on her cleaning streak ! Yesterday she came home and did the windows and curtains in the bedroom ! Tomorrow I think she's aiming for the windows in the living room and dining room - when will it end ?

Have a great Thursday and don't forget to give thanks for Queen Chuey and our own lovely Miss Falco's recovering health ! love Cookie

HAPPY HUMPDAY

TODAY WAS A FUN DAY BECAUSE WE GOT TO MEET MS FALCO BEAK TO BEAK AFTER HER VET APPOINTMENT. SHE SURE IS ONE PRETTY GIRL. AFTER FALCO AND HER MOM LEFT MOM WAS DEBATING WETHER SHE SHOULD TAKE DOWN THE HUMINGBIRD FEEDERS SINCE WE HAVENT SEEN ANY HUMMERS FOR ABOUT 2 WEEKS. WELL ABOUT 4 MINUTES AFTER FALCO LEFT A LITTLE HUMMINGBIRD SHOWED UP AT ONE OF THE FEEDERS. THE NECTAR WAS PRETTY OLD SO MOM WAS SCRAMBLING LIKE CRAZY TO CLEAN THE FEEDER AND REFILL IT SO THE LITTLE HUMMER WOULD GET A FRESH MEAL. THE MALE HUMMERS ALL WENT SOUTH A LONG TIME AGO BECAUSE THEY ONLY COME NORTH FOR ONE REASON AND AFTER THEY HAVE DONE THEIR DEED AND EATEN THEIR FILL OF BUGS AND NECTAR THEY HAVE NO MORE REASON TO STAY. THE ONLY ONES LEFT AT THIS POINT ARE YOUNG ONES AND SOME STRAGGLER FEMALES FROM THE NORTH. MOM WILL MAKE ONE MORE BATCH OF NECTAR IN CASE ANY MORE SHOW UP IN THE ENSUING WEEKS. IN THE PAST 1 OR 2 HUMMERS HAVE SHOWN UP AT THE END OF OCTOBER AND WE WANT THEM STRONG FOR THEIR LONG FLIGHT SOUTH.

  Heya, Sky!
Looks like the squawk-a-tiels are back again. Sheesh!

It was lovely today, sunny and around 63 degrees, Mom said. She went down to the lakefront at lunchtime, and it was delightful to see a couple sailboats out there on the lake. And when she was sitting there, all of a sudden a bunch of monarch butterflies flew up over the railing (the area she goes to is like a huge deck behind the War Memorial, and it is raised up about two stories high from the ground). And then the dragonflies came along with the monarchs. Watching them both was so cool! She has never seen that many monarch butterflies in one spot at the same time, or dragonflies either. It was hard to go back into work, she told me. And the geese on the water, and ducks...and the flock of seagulls that hovered over the lake was just so neat.

Mom says she is going to her special spot until she can't stand the cold any more....it just makes her feel so in tune with everything around her. She says next year she is gonna take me down there when it is nice out so I can see it for myself. I can't wait.

  Hi Sky
Today when mom tried to sign on to her Verizon account, she couldn't do it. It kept cycling onto the intro page and wouldn't let her proceed. She tried changing her password, too, but that didn't work either. Anyway, she called Verizon and is waiting for a call back. But it took valuable time, since today is my vet appointment.
Yesterday mom took me to the center and the staff up there found much more wrong with my leg! They advised mom to call the vet and get me there, so that's what we're doing today. The appointment is at 1:30 and mom is just feeling horrid about not knowing it was so bad.
I haven't been spending time with her like I used to, but mom thought I just was upset about my wing clip. Instead, now she thinks I've been in pain for over 2 months, and she is kicking herself for not doing something sooner.
We are hoping they can do something for my leg, though.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of sunshine and love. Hugs, Falco

Mom has been on a cleaning frenzy this week for some unknown reason - Monday she did her bedding and closets, yesterday the living room - even pulling out the sleeper and vacuuming EVERYTHING !

  Heya, Sky!
Well, today was sunny, but still only got to 63 degrees. Mom was glad it wasn't raining today, cuz she went down to the lakefront and watched some sailboats on the water (boy, they sure must have had to be wearing some heavier clothes, cuz it sure was chilly there!). There were geese out on the lake, and of course a seagull or three flying overhead. And the neatest thing--a monarch butterfly was dancing in the wind in front of Mom, and it followed her as she walked back to the building. Made Mom smile, too! So pretty in the sunlight, and Mom has not seen many of them this year, so this was very special.

Mom had a meeting today at the museum, so we are just getting online now. It was mostly about teaching new docents the rest of the halls. Mom had 2 years of training, but the docents who were hired in the spring only had training either in Dinosaur hall or in 3 cultures. Now they are worried that the new folks can't do tours in the rest of the museum. Anyway mom signed on to teach ecosystems, biomes, and animal adaptations, as well as possibly PA natural history. Hope they can use her expertise in some way or other.
Bree came by to do our birdicures yesterday and while she and mom were talking, mom mentioned that I am not as active with her as I used to be, and that I haven't really wanted a bath for awhile either. Bree looked at my injured leg and she thinks I might still have a fractured fibula, the little bone in the leg. So mom called Jill today to see if she can look at me and give her opinion, and maybe some vet wrap too.
I hope you are having a good day today, getting a lot of love and sunshine. Hugs, Falco

Another chilly start to the day - but after a few morning sprinkles, it's supposed to warm up to about 70. Of course - mom came home yesterday and cleaned out her bedroom - she filled two whole garbage bags of things for charity ! Also she got out a few lightweight sweaters for these mornings. I hope these cold mornings are not a coming attraction !

Today is a long one for her even though she doesn't start her drama club till November . . . no prep periods on Tuesday :( Have a great day my friends :) love Cookie

  Hi Sky
it doesn't usually get cool like this until October. i hope this doesn't mean we are in for a super long winter. winters already way to long. with all the rain we had you would think the ground would be moist but everything is dry as a bone so mom was trying to water some of the shrubs that are really wilting. its important that they get plenty of water in the fall because once the ground freezes they don't get any water at all. mom had planted some shrubs called beauty berry because they get these tiny purple luminescent berries in the fall and are quite pretty and the birds also eat them. well when mom went to water them today something had cut off all the branches with the berries on them and they were laying all over the ground. mom can't understand why someone would do that. it wasn't a deer because a deer would eat it and not leave it laying on the ground so it had to be some nasty neighbor or kid. didn't see the little bunny today but will continue to watch for him

  Hi Sky
Today Bree is coming for our birdicures. This morning mom cleaned the outdoor RVS pens for the first time in awhile. There are 2 adult coyotes out there in separate pens as well as 22 raccoons! Good thing the raccoons are social and don't mind sharing quarters, because the center doesn't have 22 cages out there! They can be housed in a few large cages, but those are real bears to clean, so it took mom over 2 hours for all the outdoor areas today. Still, it was nice to be out in the sun, even if it was cooler than we like.
I don't think we'll get out today, because it's not very warm again. In fact, it looks like it's gonna be cool all week long. I hope you are having better weather, getting some warm sunshine and especially getting lots of cuddles. Hugs, Falco

The temperatures are not even reaching 70 this whole week - time to put away the shorts ! Mom needs to go through her closet - too many things there she doesn't wear - daddy too !

we were so happy to see that the little bunny is back sitting in our yard. we were so afraid something had happened to him because he has been gone for about a month. he is now sporting a long haired winter coat. he needs it because it is dropping into the 40s now at night. of course in a month that will seem warm and will be our average day temps.

It was sunny and reached 63 degrees. Still chilly though! I did take a huge bath when it got warmer in the apt. That was pretty cool. I now have very clean feathers, and Mom is happy that I took the bath today versus tomorrow morning when she is trying to get into work!

Other than that, just a great day with Mom today. We watched the Brewers game (they won) and the Packers (they won, too!). Heard that RGIII left the game today with an injured knee. Hope it is not super serious. Washington won, so that is awesome for them.

Today mom was up super early to feed us and the dogs, then get to an event on time. She thought she would have time to walk the furballs, but she didn't, so she's going to walk them when we are done with our blogs. The event was called Wild Rumpus, and there were 2 obstacle courses, one for adults that was 5km, and one for kids that was considerably shorter, as it was all in a field with a hill on it. There weren't as many people as mom thought there would be, but it was not well advertised and was competing with at least 2 other local events. It was damp and cool out, but mom was mostly dressed for the weather. She refused to wear real shoes, though, so her feet got cold in her sandals. Twitch the squirrel was pretty cute, though. He ate a couple of Brazil nuts which mom gave him as a challenge. She thought it would take him awhile to get through the shell into the nut, but he surprised her with his quickness.
I hope you are having a good day today, staying warm and getting cuddles. Hugs, Falco

Yesterday turned out to be not too bad ! The friends of the parronts who came have two tween girls who played with me ! They all tried to go to the park to see the 9/11 memorial but after they parked and started walking (the memorial is about 3/4 mile from the parking lot - the skies opened and it poured on them ! So they all came back and I got to come out ! Mom had a vegetable tray and I got to have broccoli and cauliflower and cucumber :) Even better ? There were sketties for dinner ! !

Of course that means today they'll go to the g'parronts . . . guess I'll start fixing up my cage to the way I want it ! Hope you have a good day :) love Cookie

  Heya, Sky!
Well, did not get to go to the farmer's market today, cuz it never hit 60 degrees, even though there was sun. BUT--Mom had stuff to run to Goodwill, so she loaded up the trunk then came back upstairs for me. Since I was not outside at all, that was super. Then we went thru the car wash, so it was a pretty cool day. Paula missed me lots, too. We feel so sad for her, as her brother died suddenly. He was at his place up north near the Michigan border, and he was doing stuff around the place...and just had a big heart attack and died. It was strange, Paula said, as he loved it up there, and would say that if he died, he hoped it would be up there. Mom said that at least he died doing the things he loved, and that is a blessing. Paula agreed.

When we got home, we took a nice nap. It is still so cold here, Mom has the heater on for me. I think she likes the heater too.

Breaking news: A massive pesticide company has just asked the U.S. government to increase the legal limit for its bee-killing pesticides by 4000%.

That’s right. Four. Thousand. Percent.

Bees are already facing a massive global die-off. This could be a death sentence for millions more bees. Bees fill a crucial ecological role as pollinators and are essential for agriculture, and are responsible for every third bite of food we eat. In other words: No bees, no farms. No farms, no food.

because of this we have come to the conclusion that all CEO's of chemical companies are space aliens intent on the annihilation of all life on earth as we know it. just watch any alien space movie and you will see we are right!

Mom walked the dogs in the rain today, but the showers are supposed to end soon. We'll see, the weather guessers are usually wrong. Mom had to pull out capris and shirts with sleeves for today. It's pretty cool out, high 50s, and not expected to do much better as the day goes on. Mom has public tours today in dinosaur hall, and she's hoping to cut her tour time to a real mini tour today, between 35 and 40 minutes. We'll see...
Tomorrow mom will be working the Wild Rumpus event for the wildlife center. She will be taking care of Twitch the squirrel. He won't be the only one there, though. There will be at least 4 animals and their handlers throughout the obstacle course. This is the first time they've done this, so mom doesn't know quite what to expect, except for 5 hours outdoors and minding Twitch.
We'll let you know tomorrow afternoon what happened.
By the way, Twitch is the perfect example of why people shouldn't keep wildlife in their homes. He came to us after being kept as a 'pet' in a small cage for over a year. He was really fat, his tail is twisted irreparably, and he has metabolic bone disease from not being fed the proper diet growing up. He's called Twitch because of his seizures, as well. The poor boy is destined to be an education animal for as long as he lives, instead of being a healthy outdoor squirrel.
Hope you are having better weather than we are, more sun, more heat... And I hope you will get lots of cuddles today, too. Hugs, Falco

  hello mr. Sky
Hooray for the weekend ! Even if it's a busy one for the parronts - the only bad part is I heard mom say she wanted to clean my cage before guests come today :( I spent all day yesterday pulling the newspaper up from under the grate in my cage and shredding it all ! ! ! Now I'll have to start all over :(

Rain coming today, so at least that means the company will stay in and I'll have company. No hanging out in the yard ! Tomorrow is supposed to be nice but chilly . . . mom is hoping to get to the farm before heading to the g'parronts ! I do love the apples and peaches from there !

Happy Saturday - enjoy your day ! love Cookie

  Hi Sky
HAPPY TGIF DAY
we didn't get much of a storm the other day but temps has certainly dropped. today was no higher than 62. i know we will get some warm days here and there but hate the thought of cold weather coming.

since dad won't go anywhere he sent mom to the Olive Garden on wednesday night to bring home dinner. she got braised beef tips for both of them and lots of salad. after bringing it home and eating it mom and dad will now call the restaurant the Vomit Garden. they became so sick mom actually thought she was going to die. she spent the whole day yesterday in bed. today they are both fine.

love Cori and Boo Boo

  Hi Sky
Mom went to the center today and got there just in time to see the USDA inspector arrive. They pop in periodically to check on the animals and the cleanliness of the building. Guess what he found wrong? A cobweb in the upper corner of the possum cage and some thistle seed(finch food) spilled on a storage can lid in the kitchen! Talk about picky! Anyway the center passed with flying colors, he even complimented us on how well the animals looked.
Mom cleaned the RVS room again today, then went on to the the birds, cleaning the raptor aviaries, the small flight aviary, the main aviary, and the screech owl's enclosure in the other building. It was a very busy day, but mom feels she got a lot done.
I think she plans to read today, using her new glasses. It will be a good day for that, since it's much cooler today than it has been for awhile, only in the low 60s. I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of cuddles. Hugs, Falco

  TGIF
It's the big cool down - again daddy got up during the night to close windows . . . not only do we have company coming tomorrow, we have rain coming too ! Then Sunday it's off to the g'parronts :( Doesn't look like a very good Cookie weekend. In fact that not very good Cookie weekend starts today since mom will go do the grocery shopping on her way home this afternoon . . .

But, at least it is the weekend and mom made it through her first full week :) And she says it looks like it'll be a pretty year !

Have a good Friday ! Love Cookie
