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.

  HI SKY
How Do Birds Survive Winter Storms?
It’s cold out.. where do birds go for protection during severe weather such as blizzards, hurricanes, and tornadoes?

Many birds have an amazing ability to find refuge from storms and use a variety of ways to cope, depending on the species and the bird’s natural habitat.Some find protection against the cold and storms by communal roosting, often in a bird house. This shares warmth, and keeps the birds out of the wind, rain and snow. cavity nesters, such as chickadees, titmice and woodpeckers, also seek out old nesting sites in dead trees or bird houses in which to roost or find protection during a storm. Nuthatches, which sometimes nest behind a loose piece of tree bark, may seek the same kind of shelter against the cold.Flocks of Rosy finches often roost in an outcropping of rock where they can get out of the cold wind.Bobwhite make a circle of the covey, huddled side-by-side, with head facing out. This allows them to share body heat, while being ready to escape in all directions, should they be attacked.Ruffed grouse take a different tactic. They dive into a snow bank, and may stay there for several days until the storm passes. The Ruffed grouse has the largest range of any grouse species in North America and winter hikers have been surprised by a startled grouse bursting from the snow at their feet.Many other birds retreat to dense, evergreen thickets where they are protected from the elements for the duration of the storm.

  Hi Sky
Keep thinking spring! Daylight savings time starts this weekend, and spring is only 15 days away.
Meanwhile we had more snow overnight, about 4 to 6 inches. Mom checked this morning and both her museum tours were cancelled. That's good because it's now after 11, and the plow/salt truck just went up our street. When mom walked the dogs, it wasn't done yet and the streets were a bit slippery. The good news is that mom waited to walk the dogs, and a lovely thing happened. Apparently school was cancelled here, and there were 3 teens with snow shovels walking around the corner. She pointed out the house, and by the time she got back with the dogs, the driveway and front walk had been done. Mom is always happy to pay someone to do that for her. They also salted and took the recycle can to the edge of the driveway. They were going to take the trash out, but mom told them to leave that can as she wasn't done loading it yet. It looks like a good day to stay home and read today.
Thanks to Sweetpepper and Kacey for updating us on Nana's progress. Mom hasn't called Aunt Rose for a couple of days. I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

Although it's in the 20's now - that's a whole heap warmer than mornings have been ! And, even better ? It looks like Thor has decided to stay south of us ! We're only expecting 2-4 instead of the original 4-8 ! Good thing - mom is getting so behind with the kids . . . yesterday was another delay ! It sure is tough fitting a whole day into half !

I don't complain though - it means more mom time for me :) Yummy things like a bit of corn muffin and strawberry for breakfast :) mmmm, mmmmm, good !

Spring is only 16 days away ! ! ! love Cookie

Mom and I are fine, but she has work to do tonight--looks like this will be a regular thing every 3-4 weeks as she has to write acceptance criteria for the project work that is being done. So of course it runs into my blogging time...but I will forgive her. She says she will take the time back on another day if she can.

Sorry for the short notes but you know how it goes when the puter is being used for work and not fun.

HAPPY HUMDAY

The Smith’s Longspur May Be Nature’s Champion Lover
Are you the type that has an insatiable appetite for lusty affairs?
Do you seek the same qualities in a partner?
Then you’ll probably enjoy the story of the Smith’s Longspur. This bird’s 70’s swinging style is enough to make even Hugh Hefner blush.

Arctic Summers, Midwest Winters
Small like a sparrow, the Smith’s Longspur spends its summers in Alaska and Canada and its winters in the Midwest and the South, often congregating in open fields.In terms of range, then, it’s a lot like some other species. What sets the Smith’s Longspur apart is its astonishing libido.

An Insatiable Appetite For Love
At the peak of the spring mating season, the typical Smith’s Longspur copulates more than 350 times a week. The females solicit these encounters, and the males cooperate roughly half the time.Otherwise the creatures are resting and refueling—for their fall migration or just to maintain their busy love lives!

As hard as it may be to believe given the cold affecting much of the country, but spring is only 16 days away

  Hi Sky
Well, mom was supposed to go to a meeting at the museum today, but with the horrid weather conditions, she opted to stay at home. It was rain changing to snow when she got up this morning, and the temps have been falling since then. When she walked the dogs (at 10!) the salt truck was going up the street, so it's slippery. We don't have sidewalks in our plan, so mom walks on the street and was glad to see the truck. If mom goes out at all today, it will be to Mystery Lovers Book store to pick up some books she ordered last week, and to the supermarket to buy more grapes and berries for us.
I hope you are having a nicer day, less yuck on the ground, more warm in the sky. Get lots of scritches and cuddles today and stay warm. Hugs, Peppino

Happy Humpday ! Mom didn't have her drama club yesterday - all after school activities were cancelled cause of snow. It didn't start till about 3:00 but it came hard and steady till we had about 4-5 inches and then overnight it changed to freezing rain and sometime this morning it's supposed to go over to plain rain. The sanders just went by . . . later tonight it changes back to snow - 4-6 inches tomorrow ! When will it end ? Although, I must say it was nice having mom home early to play yesterday !

Don't forget to go play NAME THAT TUNE on page 231616 ! Love Cookie

  Heya, Sky!
Mom worked from home today cuz when she woke up, she saw snow, and it was coming down pretty good. She was not about to venture out in it, as the highway looked pretty bad, with snow all over it, and people driving like snails. Which is a good thing, as it was heavy and people were skidding off the road. So I had her at my beck and call, and boy did I! Call that is. I have no idea what beck means, other than Kanye West saying that he did not deserve the Grammy. I don't think that is the answer, do you?

Other than that, I am glad to have Mom home. She was happy to be home. And I helped her out when she was on the phone with work during a meeting. I made all kinds of cool noises. Her co-workers were suitably impressed. Mom says that birds should be seen and not heard during meetings, but I never listened to her before when she did it. Hehe!!

Hope you don't get more snow your way. The freezing stuff came down but not enough to coat the snow much. Whew. I hate winter. Mom hates winter. We need to go someplace warm!!

  HI SKY
today is World Wildlife Day—a day to celebrate the amazing variety of animals with which we share the planet and a special day to raise awareness of the plight of wildlife.

The United Nations has designated March 3 as World Wildlife Day, described by the UN as “an opportunity to celebrate the many beautiful and varied forms of wild fauna and flora and to raise awareness of the multitude of benefits that conservation provides to people. At the same time, the Day reminds us of the urgent need to step up the fight against wildlife crime, which has wide-ranging economic, environmental and social impacts and obstacles faced by those who wish to conserve populations of endangered species and their habitats all over the world.

Wildlife crime is a key issue when it comes to the conservation of increasingly dwindling environmental resources shared by humans, plants and animals. Without the help of citizens all over the globe, wildlife crime will remain a threat to our world and all who share it. Thousands of species are decreasing at alarming rates as ruthless profiteers prey on the most vulnerable populations around the world.The illegal wildlife trade is among the worst and most lucrative transnational crimes, after drugs, arms, and human trafficking. Global commercialization of wild animals and plants is a multi-billion dollar industry that results in extreme animal cruelty and severe population declines.

On World Wildlife Day, we ask that you reflect on how wildlife crime is endangering our planet, and what you can do to help.

Today, on World Wildlife Day, speak out loudly for wildlife—because they can't speak out for themselves!

There's not much going on today. Mom is going to have a late lunch/early dinner with her sister later, after they shop at Barnes and Noble and maybe a few other places. Other than that, it's a dull day here.
It's supposed to go up to 42 today, which will mean that a lot of the nasty ice will melt, but mom never believes that until it happens. I hope you are having a great day, staying warm, and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

Mom had a really short day yesterday - two hour delay for school cause of snow and then she had a workshop in the afternoon - she got home when she should have is all that mattered to me :) This afternoon is her drama club meeting . . . only we're supposed to get a couple more inches of snow so she may cancel - wait and see.
Good news is that by the weekend it's supposed to be near 40 ! ! !

My latest project includes carrying my set of measuring cups one at a time and filling up all the food and water bowls with them ! Then when I get hungry or thirsty, I throw them and they make a great big clunking noise ! ! !

Stay warm ! love you Cookie

Snow, rain and freezing rain. That means ice. Mom is not driving in ice. She hit some black ice a year or two ago, and took out her bumper. That was pricey, for sure, to get fixed. She does not want to have anything like that happen...or worse. Best to stay home and work from here. She has too many meetings, so she can't call in sick. Well, she could but she is not gonna do that. Hopefully her boss will be okay with it. He should be.

Off for my head scritch and then me and Mom are gonna perch. She is tired tonight.

  Hi Sky
since we are still getting winter advisory warnings, more snow and temps still dropping down to the low 10s i thought i would talk about chickadees those cute little black and white balls of fluff we see flying around outside in this weather. Chickadees Are Cold Weather Machines

Though any bird that survives winter in the North amazes those of us that depend on furnaces and warm blankets, the black-capped chickadee may be the most incredible of all winter survivors. although none can compare to the emperor penguin thats for sure.

“Black-capped Chickadees have a wonderful assortment of adaptations for the winter. “Carefully hidden food items, dense winter coats, specially selected winter roost cavities, and perhaps most remarkable of all, the ability to go into nightly hypothermia, thus conserving large amounts of energy, greatly increases the chances of survival,” The ability to go into regulated hypothermia actually lowers the chickadee’s body temperature in a controlled manner, down to about 12 or 15 degrees (F.) below their normal daytime temperature of 108 degrees (F.). This remarkable adaptation allows the bird to conserve almost 25 percent of its hourly metabolic expenditure when the outside temperature is at freezing. The lower the outside temperature, the more energy conserved

“Chickadees are not the suburban wimps that some people think they are as every winter morning chickadees replace the fat they used overnight and struggle against starvation and stinging cold. even though they are tough survivors that live close to the edge of life i still find myself partial to Bue Jays as i spot their bright blue color against the white snow and hear them calling out to me every morning. at least i like to think they are calling out to me.

Yesterday mom did call off at the museum, as the weather was horrid. It snowed most of the morning and into the afternoon, then it changed to rain and froze. The good news is that Josh came and shoveled, then salted. That didn't keep it from freezing overnight, though, so mom had to salt the front walk and the driveway before she could walk the dogs and leave.
Mom did her taxes yesterday, and with the refund, she may buy a new stove. At least that's what she's thinking right now.
Today mom worked at the very cold wildlife center. They have set up space heaters, but the building is so big with high ceilings, they didn't help much. Mom cleaned up after the gull in the small flight aviary (no heater in there), then she worked in the recovery room (again, no heater in there). She was pretty cold when she got done with the animals, so she asked if it was okay to leave. They said yes, of course! Now she's working on warming up.
I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches, and staying warm. Spring in 18 days! Hugs, Peppino

Where does the weekend go ? Although yesterday was a good day with my Laura coming to celebrate her birthday ! After some chicken (yum) there was a strawberry for me while the hoomans had brownie cake ! Then I got to have the wrappings from the present . . . the only bad part was it ended too soon since mom wanted Laura home before dark cause of all the snow !

Yep, about 6 more inches ! It started just before noon and kept coming - a light snow, but steady, so it added up to a 2 hour delayed start to school !

Have a good day :) I love my friends ! Cookie

We had a nice day. Mom did all her stuff for getting ready for work tomorrow. I sure hope she can stay home on Tuesday with me. I hate having her drive in yuck. Not so much her, but the other guys who think that they know how to drive, and don't.

Who knows what will hit us on Tuesday when Thor visits our area? Mom heard 3-5 inches of snow turning into ice. Guess we will know more tomorrow. Maybe!?

  HI SKY
March has come in like a lion in our neck of the woods and its snowing snowing, snowing. i would like to start out my campaign by talking about HUMAN POOP. More than 2.5 billion people in the developing world lack access to toilets, and a child dies every 15 seconds from diarrhea, usually the result of food or water becoming contaminated by human waste. Each year, 200 million tons of the world’s poop also goes completely untreated, ending up directly in lakes, rivers, and oceans.

in Kenya, , $324 million is lost every year due to sickness and missed work hours caused by poor sanitation. Nonprofits and businesses have experimented with what to do with human waste. Haiti is famous for distributing “composting toilets” that drastically lower the risk of contracting diseases. by collecting the poop from toilets, treating it, and selling it as fertilizer.

in Kenya Instead of composting the waste to grow food, it’s turning it into energy to cook it by distributing toilets to local families, emptying them each month, and turning the poop into briquettes. After the waste is collected from toilets around town, it’s put it in a solar concentrator that uses mirrors to heat the waste to temperatures that have been shown by the Centers for Disease Control to kill pathogens, making it safe for reuse.

Across Africa and around the world, hundreds of millions of people cook with wood and charcoal. Most charcoal comes from trees that are slowly cooked down in huge earthen ovens, removing the moisture without oxidizing the wood so that it becomes a more efficient source of heat per volume. But the process consumes a lot of trees—four tons of trees produce just one ton of charcoal, according to the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization—and with populations on the continent rising exponentially, deforestation is only increasting. Already, forest cover in Kenya has fallen to just 2 percent, and the price of charcoal is rising.

Moreover, smoke from burning charcoal indoors can be hazardous 6 percent of global diseases and 7 percent of disease-related deaths are caused by respiratory infections. poop briquettes contain one-third less charcoal than normal ones. For now the briquettes being given away for testing purposes.“When you look at the chemical composition of poop, it’s 90 percent organic matter and 40 percent carbon. So not only is there a high demand for fuel, but poop from a chemical composition standpoint already has a great composition to be turned into fuel,” he said.one major obstacle is the “ick” factor. reservations tend to disappear as soon as they try out the odorless briquettes for themselves. the proof is in the smell—or rather, lack thereof. They see it’s not smelling, it’s cooking good.”

It was bright and sunny--sure made it seem like it was warmer than it was. I thought for sure I would be going with Mom to the store. She told me it was way too cold out there, even if it was sunny. She did bring me back some peas and carrots and fresh papaya and raspberrries and grapes. So I will forgive her. Oh, yeah, and samosa's from Trader Joe's. I had the meat ones and did not like them that much, so Mom picked up the veggie ones. Oh yeah! Now that is what I call a samosa!! Mmmm!

We are supposed to have some light snow tonight. Mom took the car in to be washed today too. She says it looks much better. That grey film of salt and road yuck is all gone. And boy were there a ton of folks at the car wash! Anyway, Tuesday is the big winter storm day, so you know Mom is staying at home with me. They are saying 6 inches after rain and sleet. Not driving weather. Nothing like the folks out east got, thank heavens.

We were surprised to see Divo as Angel of the Day today. Thanks for remembering him.
Mom was at the center this morning as usual, and had the RVS room to clean. There was only one groundhog in there today, as well as that mean raccoon, and 5 bats. The good news about the bats is they are all in one terrarium. That's also the bad news! It's hard to keep track of who's been fed, and the white out was nowhere to be found. They all ate, mom thinks. They are so cute when they drink, too. Mom gives them water in a 1cc oral syringe, and their little tongues just lap it up from the tip of the syringe.
After the center she went to the supermarket to get us fresh veggies and to get herself some juice. Tomorrow she has raptor class at the center, it will be on medical handling for raptors, we think. They might redo the mammal handling class, which is great, since mom missed it. She also told them already that she would miss next week's raptor class because that's the day she helps out at Biscuits Bingo. Hopefully they will do something to make sure mom qualifies for raptor handling, since she's been doing it for 13 years.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of warm cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

  Hi Sky
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 !

My Laura has a birthday on Sunday so she's coming over to celebrate with me ! I got her a charm for her Pandora - a little silver bird ! ! ! love Cookie

  Heya, Sky!
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.

Your buddy,
Kaji

  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

  Heya, Sky!
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.

Have a greyt night! And a Terrific Toosday!
Your buddy,
Kaji

  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

  hi Sky
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
