Moving stuff in our cage, Floof that won't go where we want it, not being able to get at the guys in the other cage.

She keeps our cage sparkling clean in spite of all our best efforts.

  Hey Finches
Mom has been bad, hasn't she? But we will forgive her because we got a package today with birdie gifts! Even Millie and Lily got one! Mom says we have to wait until Christmas to open them, though. Poor mom, getting bit by Marie can't be fun, that girl has a huge can opener on her face! Hope the uncles are having fun, though, that sounds like a great trip.
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

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Season's Greetings, Everybirdie!, PEPPINO, please vote me BOTM for the new year, Divo & Falco, Merry Christmas!.

  Hi Finches
Would the feather picker please ID yourself!!!!
A pkg came today, thanks. Mom hung up the card and put the pkg under the tree. I really have more things to open than mom ... LOL!
Wasn't it uncle Tim that showed mom a pic of the new cage? That was a really nice cage. It was pricey and mom doesn't have the $$$ to get one for me.
Please tell Mom T-bird that my mom used to drive an hour to work downstate in good weather. It was 1 1/2 in bad weather (sometimes 2 hours).
It was clean Chyna's condo day. I don't like that! I worked hard to get it that way.
At least we saw the sun again today! Looks like 3 more days of partial sun and then 3 days of snow. It will even snow on Christmas.
Better get the peppermint hot chocolate ready.
Hugs

  Hi Finches and Sherman & Peabody
OK, who's the bad guy????? I guess it will be the only one that has feathers!!!!
As for Sherman & Peabody ...oh oh, they are building a nest? Sounds like enough for the whole group. Maybe they could sell the nesting paper for some profit? You really need to set up a page here for them. We will not be using that Birdyville.
Glad that mom T-bird likes her new job. How far away is the drive? Tell her not to worry about the windows. dad did ours and now you would never know they were ever clean!
Did Uncle Tim get Einstein's new cage set up? Wasn't he in that huge cage? I guess that Marie only likes her dads.
We always leave our Christmas stuff up until the Epiphany (Little Christmas) too. Not sure what we will do this year as, our vacation isn't long after that.
I saw the sun for an hour today. It made all the snow on the trees and ground look like crystals, very pretty. I don't know why it won't stay. The snow will be back for sure on Tuesday. I hope the sun comes back too. It stays away much too long!
Hugs

V4U today. Mom is so far behind with answering our blogs. The days have been flying by, and it will be even busier the closer it gets to Christmas. Yes, that was really good news on our dog. The tumor was cancer, but it was caught early and the vet said the outside margins were clear. She's doing fine for an old gal of 13. We have to carry her up and down the stairs when we take her out to do her duty, but she walks just fine in the house, especially when she hears her food bowl. Her hearing is just fine! LOL :)Have a good day. From, Mayo

We bet mom really misses Tooth as a cuddler. In time, she may want another birdie to cuddle but he or she won't be the Tooth.
Thanks for your vote, and thanks to Aunt Rose, Dixie's mom, for our beautiful and seasonally appropriate pics.
I decided I'd feature Pittsburgh for at least a few days, without getting tedious.
Lots of people have the wrong idea of Pittsburgh, they still think of it like it was in the '50s, Hell with the Lid Off, because of all the mills and pollution. The mills are long gone, the riverfronts have been developed, and it's a great place to visit or to live.
We actually have a beautiful clear skyline today, with lots of tall buildings. But today I want to stress the academic climate here. Pittsburgh and the surrounding areas are home to many colleges and universities. Let's start from where I live and go towards town. There's Chatham College, Carnegie Mellon University, University of Pittsburgh, Carlow University, Duquesne University, Point Park College, Robert Morris, and LaRoche. Isn't that a lot of higher education? Mom has a particular fondness for Carlow, where she attended undergrad school on a working scholarship, and the University of Pittsburgh, where she got her Masters degree. Okay, so now you know where the eggheads in Pittsburgh are!
Thanks for your vote, see you again tomorrow, I hope! Hope also that you are having a great day. Hugs, Peppino

  Hi Finches
Mom's sister did the hanging trick, and didn't spend on any geraniums this past spring. Mom didn't and spent a bundle!
I am so tired of not seeing our pics! I know they're there someplace, but not on our pages for us to see.
The KB is active! I am having a great time there, and hope to see everybirdie there at least once during my 2 weeks. We will be showing Christmas movies, starting with ELF, my very favorite one.
Not much news today, mom is going out for the Christmas baking supplies and our radiator. The guy who sold us the furnace said he has one at home with his cockatiel in the house, so he knows they are bird safe.
Please vote for Peppino every day this month, he would appreciate the support.
I hope you are having a good day and getting cuddles and scritchies. Hugs, Falco

V4U today. Glad to hear you had a nice Thanksgiving, same here. :) We received good news about our oldest dog. The tumor was removed and the pathology report showed no cancer cells in the margins around the tumor, so we are very happy about that. Our dog is 13 and we realize that she is old, but we hope and pray she lives a long time. She is a rescue, and is very special. Have a good day. From, Mayo

  Happy Thanksgiving Finches
V4U today. We're flying by to wish you and your family a wonderful and a very Happy Thanksgiving. :) Mom's busy in the kitchen, Dad's busy reading the paper. LOL :) Everyone will be coming to our house for Thanksgiving lunch today. Our flock has been told that we will get some of the food, too. :) Mom is sorry that she has not been blogging lately. Along with being busy, our oldest dog just had a cancerous tumor removed. So mom has been preoccupied with that. Thank you for your friendship, and have a wonderful and Happy Thanksgiving. :) From, Mayo

  Hi Finches
Just a hint about the geraniums: we heard mom talking about it. If you pull out the plants by the roots (before the frost, so it's probably way too late this year) and hang them upside down in a cool dry place for the winter, they should be able to come back in the spring. Mom hasn't tried it because she can't do dahlias or poinsettias due to either temperature or humidity in the garage. Mom's sister has had success though, with geraniums, begonias, and dahlias.
We have a Christmas cactus in bloom, and an amaryllis almost ready to open, not to mention a ton of narcissus, some in bloom, and some still growing.
Well, we are hoping for an end to the seemingly eternal furnace saga today. Yesterday the nice young man stayed and checked absolutely everything out. It was all running nicely when he left, but 2 hours later, the temps were falling and the furnace was not responding. Mom's sister brought over some batteries she had just bought, in case the ones mom put in as replacements were somehow too old. They didn't help! So, mom called the company back. The nice young man called her and asked if she wanted him to come back last night, but she said it was under control, and she'd see him today. Well, it was 57 again this morning when mom got up! She turned off and restarted the furnace like he had showed her yesterday, and it worked to warm the house.
Mom went ahead and ran a couple of errands before going to the center for her shift, so she would be home by noon. She called the company when she got home just to let them know, and the secretary didn't have her on the schedule for today! You can imagine mom's dismay. They finally got it straightened out, and the same guy will come today to install the new switches. We all sincerely hope this is the end of the story, because it's getting old. Plus, mom worries about how these temperature changes are affecting us birds. Mom is listening for changes in our breathing and is really alert to our posture. So far, we all seem to be okay.
This morning at the center, mom cleaned the main aviary, the little screech owl in the habitat building, and the raptor aviaries. There is a turkey in one of them, heehee. We know, turkeys are not raptors. It is keeping him close to the building, though, so he can't get as cold as he would if he were in a free standing outdoor pen.
The pigeon is still gaining weight, and the little waxwings have their light, so mom was happy to see that. LT. Dan, the wood turtle, is still trying to escape, but not bruising his little armpits, because the pillowcase solution seems to be working.
We may be late or not get online at all tomorrow because mom is working an event from 11 to 4, so if you don't hear from us, we're okay. She was going to have Jake the snake with her, but they have her assigned to Quincy and Dan Quail instead. They put others with the snake, turtles, Irwin, etc.
I hope you are having a warmer time than we are, and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falc

  `Ü´ Greetings & Good Evening
My Finchly Society Featheriends!

I am flitting by this evening for a very short visit to share with you a little bit of the great fun I had this Tuesday past presenting a program with Momma for The Sylvan Seniors at Mt Sylvan United Methodist Church in Durham, where Momma and Daddy attend. (They do not attend the s-e-n-i-o-r-s functions. **TeeHee** They attend CHURCH there.)

Momma and I were given half an hour to address the group, to share what Life with a Parrot is like, for most of them had never had an eggsperience with a companion parrot; particularly not one of my size! When we have a program like that, Momma usually starts out by eggsplaining how she and Daddy came to start a flock like the K Kritter Korral, and how it grew; and then, through sheer human curiosity, we have a wonderful conversation about what all is entailed in living with a parrot (or parrotS). Of course, I-I-I contribute greatly to program content; this time including a stroll back and forth in front of the front row at one point, for emphasis of the subject matter at hand. (At just the right point in time I climbed down off my play stand and let Momma know I had something to add. **GRiN**)

When our time for the presentation was over, the group had some lunch together. I was given my fill of some lovely white grapes by a number of brave ladies and gentlemen, and then several of them wanted to have their picture taken with me. In my Gallery at the bottom of my page you can see just a couple of the lovely folks I visited with parrotsonally.

I shall return with those promised eggsplanations of the positions of the players on a FootBall team when next I visit.

Toutes alors, mes amies,
[Until then, My Featheriends]

Up North Update:

We made it thru the worst and didn't lose power. Looks like two more days of heavy snow. It was so windy last night that it howled all night long. Today was full of whiteouts and strong winds again. The roads are very icy. I watched my dad plow snow most of the day. Then he was using the roof rake, I didn't like that part when the snow came down and made a big thud! Boy, is it ever COLD up here! I have my footie pj's on and a big fluffy robe. Mom & I have been hitting the hot chocolate. Come over if you want to go sledding or use the snow shoes.

I know you aren't on the BC very much but, here's my update :(

Well, it was a good thing my parronts went down to Traverse City today. It wasn't bad going down but, coming home the weather got worse. Just in case I lose power, here's the story. We have a winter storm warning thru Wednesday at 5am with up to 12 more inches of snow. Road conditions will be bad with whiteouts and 40 mph winds. We are staying home. This means I get lots of attention! Get out extra blankets, footie pj's and a ton of hot chocolate!

North Update:

Hope every birdie is having a nice weekend. Saturday thru Tuesday will be snow with highs of 19 to 27 degrees for us. The roads are covered in ice and I don't think we will see the ground again until late spring. Hope you are wearing your footie pj's and having a nice cup of hot chocolate with lots of marshmallows.

  Hi Finches
That sounds like a lovely way to spend time. HOpe the moms had fun. Mom asked Bree about sitting in December, so now she needs to know where you are staying and for one night or 2? She's thinking for herself, 2 nights might be better, she can come in on the 5th, go to the show on the 6th, and leave the 7th to go back home. If Debbie M. is going, maybe they could be roommates? Let us know. It's probably easier to phone and find out.
It's been kind of dreary looking here yesterday and today. It rained all night, we think, and when mom walked the dogs this morning, it was drizzling a bit. It gave her a chance to wear her new rain jacket, though. She also went shopping for us, a few fruits and veggies.
Later today it's cage cleaning again, since trash goes out tonight for tomorrow morning. Mom has a 'date' with her sister to do some shopping and go to dinner at Mitchell's, a nice seafood place on the waterfront a little later today, but mostly she will be home with us, YAY. Hope you are having a fun day and getting some cuddles as well. Hugs, Falco

Well, we will find a way. I think mom will have aunt Gail plant them. Then when mom moves to a warmer area (hehe) she can get it back!
I just knew that Mom-T would do very well and I hope that job opens up soon for her.
Thank you for liking my royal portrait. You knew I had to have my diamonds on ... hehehe.
Please say hi to your G-pa, Patrick, Tim and Mike for me and mom. And of course a big hug to both moms from both of us.
It's still raining ... I'd better get the ark ready! We just got an email tonight for a winter wonderland get away. Are they crazy?????

Mom is so bummed out about those seeds. maybe she will try to grow a couple and give the rest to aunt Gail. Since it is a large bush, it would be hard to bring in every winter.
Maybe your mom can come here and paint. I see a lot of rooms in this house that need it.
Going on another trip to Williamsburg ... how nice. So, how did her test go?
It was another cold day and the snow is still here! I did something clever today ... at least mom thinks so. I was eating a pellet and wanted a drink. I didn't want to waste time so, I held on to the pellet with my beak really good while drinking from my water bottle. I never dropped it and continued eating ... hehehe.
Stay warm!

  `Ü´ Greetings and Happy Halloween, Finch Society!
It is I, Ruby Francesca Begonia; the GirlBird who is dreaming of being voted the Bird of the Month for December. I don’t suppose you remember me now … Dooooo You? *GRiN*

I have been a member of this BirdChannel Community since August the 2nd of 2007. I am actually the Official Flock Leader of The K Kritter Korral; not that loud beaked frother of mine, (Ö> CR Jake, as HE would have everybirdy believe. It is understandable, though, that everybirdy would think that, since he does seem to have more to say than any of the rest of us in the flock.

I am just stopping by today to say “Hello” and to introduce myself (or Reintroduce, as the case may be) to everybirdy before my “Run for the Roses” commences tomorrow. And I am also inviting you to stop by my page (#35469) each day during the month of November to see what Momma and I have been able to come up with to entertain you and make it worth your while to cast your invaluable vote to help me attain my goal. Because, as everybirdy knows, this coveted Award does not just fall out of the sky each month. It takes work. And a desire to have a LARGE AMOUNT of FUN to make it happen.

And FUN is precisely what I intend to conjure up for everybirdy, as much as a GRITS GirlBird can. **TeeHee** I say that because, you may have noticed that my way of speaking may seem just a bit odd to you. That is because a “GRITS” GirlBird stands for a GirlBird Raised In The South, as I was; and as you may well know, we Southerners have a distinct way of speaking. I hope I will not be too formal for your tastes, and that we will all be able to have a great time … even if it does take a bit of getting used to. I shall try my hardest to give you all a good time!

Also by way of introduction, you may or may not recognize me as a partner with Miss Alex of the La Habra Flock in The Pretty Rose Flower Shop (Page #188440). If in no other way, you may recognize who I am from your having placed an order or received a Floral Gift from our Shop at some point. If that is how we have met, I do hope we have served you well and that you will give us many more opportunities to do so again in the future.

But I ramble on. Suffice it to say that I hope what Momma and I have planned for you for the month will be both fun and interesting. And, at this point, I also wish to thank Mr Jesse, the October candidate for November Bird of the Month, for his kind invitation for all of you to come play with me during his reign.

  Hi Finches
Good luck to Mom T with the interview! I know we were by already to congratulate you but I had some things to share with you too. Mom got more marigold seeds from her sis so if your bighead is interested, she can send some of those too. She doesn't know what kind, though, because her sister doesn't separate the marigold seeds.
What a football game yesterday! It was a real quarterback battle, and the Steelers tried to give it away in the second half, but they ultimately prevailed. Mom doesn't remember seeing such a high scoring pro game ever.
Today at the center, mom did all the RVS animals, because she was the only RVS person on the schedule for the day. She cleaned the outdoor raccoon cages, then went in to find the bat. At first she didn't see it, she peeked under the towels hanging from the sides of its terrarium and it wasn't there. Then she took out the tiny lid that was in the bottom of the cage with water in it. She was a little worried that the bat had escaped at this point. When she removed the water, she noticed a tiny lump in the towel at the bottom of the cage. She lifted it carefully, and the bat was there. It was laying directly on the heating pad, so the poor little one must have been cold last night. There was a frost here, but the furnace at the center usually kicks on. Maybe the heat didn't extend into the RVS room, or the bat just needed some extra heat. Anyway, it took a bit of effort to get it to start eating, but once it got started, it ate 20 mealworms. It's hard to imagine, but mom thinks with 20 mealworms you could probably construct a whole bat, so she doesn't know where the bat puts all that food. Maybe they have hollow legs or something, heehee.
If you think we birds eat a lot, you haven't seen bats eat.
After the center, mom mailed a package, then got gas and went shopping for a little lunch. Now she's home with us, and we get to blog. It's another beautiful day here, crisp and cool, but sunny. The lawn guys came today and cleaned up all the leaves, so the lawn looks as nice as the gardens do now.
I hope you are having a good day, getting some sunshine and cuddles. Hugs, Falco

  Congrats for B'sOTD sweet Finches from Ziggy & Jen
So far all of dad's family visits have been fabulous, it is amazing how much one can learn from their own childhood and young adult life from the view of one's siblings! They are all in good health and very happy, and that is a blessing within itself! We all spoke of our beloved mother and her soft gentle nature, we all drew our wisdom and strength for her! Dad has one more go-around with them today, then back to normal once again! We are having a very warm day, in the upper 70's, have a great Monday and give my love to all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow...

Love always from Ziggy, Jenny, dad, and our family

Come visit me, Ziggy Claus is coming to town-My 2nd Christmas!!, Jenny Lynn~with a precious Christmas memory--, Limon Dallas~Love my home & still see my old mom, The Raiders~Happy New Year from the team in 2014!!, Angel Christy~I love all the special things..., Ms LaLo~Merry Christmas my friends-I love you!! & Mr Flash~Summer at the McAviay.

  Congrats Royal Society!
Are there only 2 of you left in the cage? Will you be getting any more to join you? We think of your morning confabs and planning sessions frequently.
Polly got a new collar and I'm JAILED. Mom started cleaning my play yard and didn't even give me the unfound pellets but put them aside for "treat" later. I ask, do you think that is much of a TREAT?
