  Day 19--Sights and Scenes to behold
"HELLOOOO!!!!!!!" Angel Girl yells, listening to her voice echo off the rock faces of the mountains. " This is so cool. We have so much to do in this one park, it's incredible."
"Oh look" Kaji points as he spies a large mother black bear with three tumbly teenage cubs following behind, wrestling and rolling in the long meadow grass.
There are many activities to do when visiting the Cape Breton Highlands National Park. Activities include camping, hiking, sightseeing, swimming, fishing, cycling, golfing, kayaking and surfing. There are endless swimming options available for all ages in the park. There are five main salt water ocean beaches in the park and two freshwater lakes. The ocean beaches include Ingonish Beach, North Bay Beach, Broad Cove Beach, Black Brook Beach and La Block Beach. The two freshwater beaches include Freshwater Lake and Warren Lake. Freshwater Lake and Ingonish Beach are both supervised with a lifeguard during the summer months. There are very strong currents at Black Brook and Ingonish Beach which must be considered when bringing small birdies to these two beaches.
"Hey let's go white water kayaking down the Cheticamp River." Pookie says eager for adventure. " Then we could try surfing off the beach."
"Sounds like fun." Angel Girl climbs up on a tree stump to be heard. " OK, who wants to try some kayaking in white waters?" she looks as every wing goes up. " cool bunch of adventures."
"They Park ranger says they have kayaks arrival at the top of the river. We can ride the horses there, or hike cross country." Jenny-Lynn tells the group.
"We better hike, leave the horses here until we return and head down tot he ocean later for some surfing. Pookie offered to help teach us a few basics." Willie adds, grabbing his backpack
. The sun shines like sparkles through the heavy pine forest canopy. As the group walk they reach the opening over looking the ocean and park below. Steep cliffs and deep river canyons carve into a forested plateau bordering the Atlantic Ocean.
"BB, this is so beautiful, I feel like we have escaped into the past. Look how alive it all looks here." Sky hugs BB close as they look out over the park.
"Dixie, look, deer" Little Angel watches as the group graze in the shadows of the mountain.
Rio and Cydney, stand in awe at the size of the ocean stretched before them. " It goes on forever"
Jesse, joins Falco as they take photos to member their trip to Cape Beeton. " Popeye, Cori, Boo Boo and Pearl stop to admire an Eagle soaring high in the sky above them.
"We better get going so we have time to kayak before the sun gets too high in the sky. It will be so much fun bumping and splashing down the river." Angel Girl talks to Lalo and Sugar as they begin to hike down the soft, leaf covered pathway.
Sky grins, patting his backpack. " some pickles just in case I get hungry."
Angel Girl giggles and shakes her head at her frother, " always hungry"

  Hi Finches
The birdicure was fine, Willie is the only one who reacts, and he's a real drama queen, heehee. He would get mad if he heard that, he's considered the king of drama here.
Today is my 3rd day on the antibiotics, so mom got her 3rd bite today (on the arm instead of the hand this time). Only 11 more doses to go, heehee. I don't really like getting toweled and told what to swallow, but I think mom means well. She is wondering if anybirdie out there has a suggestion for probiotics, as well. She hates to buy benebac, because I'm only one bird, and those tubes are expensive. Has anybirdie tried a dot of yogurt? We think that may work, but we aren't sure. Mom says it would be such a tiny amount, it shouldn't hurt, be we'd like to be sure.
Mom cleaned the coyote pens today, and both boys are getting big. They should be gone soon, we think. Yesterday the 22 outdoor raccoons were released, YAY, and today about 6 turtles said goodbye to us and went home to the wild. It's really clearing out there. Martha's foster owlets went into the flight cage this morning after the red tailed hawk was released from there, so it's starting to slow down considerably at the center.
I hope you are having a good day today, even though these days are getting shorter and the weather is cooling down. Get lots of extra cuddles to keep you warm, okay? Hugs, Falco

  Hi finches
V4U today. It's great that fall is finally here. We sure do like the cooler weather. Nothing new, just busy as usual. Our two clearance hibiscus flowered yesterday for the first time since we bought them. They were in pretty bad shape when we bought them so it was a treat to see them in flower with healthy looking leaves. Wishing you a nice weekend. From, Mayo

  Day 18--Cape Breton Highlands National Park
Hello everybirdie, Angel Girl here with today's BOTM post. It was so eggciting to see the whales so up close and personal. The majestic giants were happy to show-off their talents, leaping, and blowing for us as we paddled among them heading for our new campsite at Cape Breton National Park. I wish to take a moment to thank everyone for their their daily votes and support in my quest for the throne. Sharing this adventure with all my friends is making it a special memory for me.
After paddling along the coast we finally arrived at Cheticamp, on the edge of Park. Here we were reunited with our horses, and were able to pick up a few needed supplies that my frothers Jesse and Amanda, being boys, forgot to include in our packs. The park is located in the northern end of the island and covers one-third of the Cabot Trail. It passes through the park featuring spectacular ocean and mountain views. The park is well known for its "steep cliffs and deep river canyons that carve into a forested plateau bordering the Atlantic Ocean" The park was the first National Park in the Atlantic provinces of Canada and covers an area of 948 km². It is one of 42 in Canada's system of national parks. It is known worldwide as the place where singer Taylor Mitchell died after being fatally attacked by coyotes, the only adult human fatality from coyotes in history.
At the western entrance of the park is the Acadian village of Chéticamp on the Gulf of Saint Lawrence . On the eastern side of the park are the beaches at Ingonish on the Atlantic Ocean. In between are mountains, valleys, forests, waterfalls, rocky coastlines and a tundra-like plateau known as the Cape Breton Highlands. Park wildlife includes moose, black bears, coyotes, and Bald Eagles. The park provides habitat for the uncommon Bicknell's Thrush and Gaspe' Shrew. The first nest records of Boreal Owls for Nova Scotia were found in the south west corner of this park.
" Lalo, come on, you have enough souvenirs" Jenny-Lynn says, wings on her hips as she keeps an eye on her fister in the gift shop in Cheticamp.
"What's this Acadian thing?" Gus asks Hulk, "reading a sign mounted in town square
"Acadians are of mixed decent, French and other races. They came here from Louisiana"
"So we can get some Cajun cookin here? Let's go get something to eat!" Gus replies happily
"Wait for us" Susan and Snowy yell as they weave through the crowd of horses and riders." can't pass on a greyt meal"
Angel Girl continues to check their supplies list preparing to head to their next camp site.."Oh we need more eggs and oatmeal." She gives the list to Sky who heads off to gather all they need from the store near by.
"This place is beautiful" SamIam comments, looking out over the ocean, :has a historic appeal to it."
" I have everything we need. We better ride out before it gets too dark: Sky tells Angel Girl
"Ok, let's mount up birdies, time to head into the mountains."

  Day 17--A Whale of a Good Time
Good morning everyone, Happy Humpday. Today we will finish our trip along the coast. Arrangements were made for our horses and supplies to be delivered to our newest camp site in the Cape Breton Highlands National Park. It's sure been an awesome sight to see all the wild seabirds including Arctic Puffins and several Gull and Tern species. The Grey Seals were a playful surprise, however as many of us know their plight is sad as animal rights groups world-wide fight to ban the annual seal hunt. We had just set off when we were joined by a pod of playful, entertaining whales.
Spot lands eggspertly in his kayak, and waves at a whale! BonBon and Snowflake shriek and laugh as one of the whales 'blows' right next to them and they get showered!"Oh, no, we're covered in whale snot!" yells BonBon! Spot and the band of bros. laugh at them as they try to wipe off the stuff!
"That'll teach you to get too close to the whales! " says Spot.
Just then a whale comes up under Spot's kayak and dumps them into the water! The mama Whale says," it's not nice to laugh at the pretty girl birds! "
"Yes ma'am, we're sorry!" says Spot and the boys reply! He whispers to Panther," we better get out of here!"
"What an adventure! "says Panther." We could have been eaten by whales!"
Angel Girl laughs and says, "silly boys, whales don't eat birds!"
"Today we visit Cheticamp, Cape Breton, a famous Nova Scotia destination, known for it's whale sightings. The most frequent sightings are big Fin whales, dolphins, Minke whales, Humpback whales and Pilot whales. Seals and Puffins are observed on nearly every tour.
"hey look, spotted whales?" Puffin calls out, " look at the white spots"
"They are actually North Atlantic right whales which come here rarely with their calves for the summer from Florida and Georgia waters. Those white patches seen on the right whale's head are raised tissue that is actually dark in color called callosities. Whale lice or cyamids covering the callosities are what makes them appear white. " Sky explains
Little Peep and Rio stand tall to get abetter glimpse of the rare whales. Kiddo and Sweetpepper take photos of the whales as they surface close by. Pilot whales splash happily at the kayaking birdies, as they call in whale-enise to one another. " They're so cute" Kacey adds as she sketches a whale jumping out of the water on her art pad.
" These are so gentle yet so large" Mr Finnegan comments to Susan as they sit watching from their kayak.
" Until recently Whales were feared as being dangerous and aggressive, yet look, how gently they swim and play close to us." BB states as she snuggles with Sky to watch they giants of the ocean.
"Willie, did you get a good shot of that baby and her Momma?" Falco asks from across the group of kayaks bobbing softly in the calm waters.
"YEP! Mom's gonna love these pictures."
Reluctantly the group begins to paddle towards their next stop-over! Spot waves good-bye!

  Hi Guys
and girls, too. Thanks for helping me celebrate BOTD! I was so surprised to see myself staring out on the main page. It was a great party in the castle, too, hope you were able to attend and get some of that great cake.
Sorry I didn't get here earlier. Mom just got back from the vet. The Doctor was actually pleased with the healing on Falco's leg, but the wound in her side was not there before. It hadn't bled that mom could see. When her leg got hurt, she bled all over the cage. This new wound might be from her picking at her side, we just don't know. Anyway, she is on oral antibiotics for 2 weeks, and they will go back for a follow up next week. Mom is also putting some aloe vera healing balm on the leg and side for now, as well. The gook news is that her gram stain was normal and she has gained 5 grams, bringing her weight back to where it should be.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of hugs. Here's one from me, too. Hugs, Peppino

  Hi PM & Al
Another nasty puter night for us ... at least the net is up ... sort of! We had days with no power!
It's only 4 weeks before mom is there ... YAY!
So you want mom to bring the cold cold rainy weather with her???? She was ready to pack now, it might be winter clothes!
So, Sherman and Peabody are wild ones ... hehehehe. Looks like some training will be going on ... better you than me!
What a cold and dreary day we had. The high temps were 48 to 52 degrees ... BRRR! I had to wear my hoodie to keep warm.
Today we remember all the people lost in the WTC, Pentagon and Shanksville PA ... keeping them and the survivors in our thoughts and prayers.
Hugs

  Hi PM & Al
Thanks for sending a note up to angel tooth for me. I don't think anyone could have stopped those 4 nasty severe t-storms that hit us. Mom & I were very scared but dad thought it was interesting. We got a good sleep the next night.
We had a nice sunny day of 72 degrees today. But, the temps will continue to fall all week. I guess I'd better dust off the snowshoes, so sad.

Well, you could always call him PM (prime minister ?Phoebe Montgomery ... hehehe).
Oh yes, I'm very girly. That was my face painting from the Milonga Fair in August.
I'm so happy that the package arrived in one piece. You know how my mom worries! Hope the moms liked it. It does have some bling (you know my mom), but not too much. We just wanted to remember their special day.
We did get 72 degrees but that was it. I'd say we won't see a real summer this year. If we get the early, short and cold fall followed by a worst winter; don't think we'll have a good summer next year either.
I'm back! What a week we had ... tornado, severe t-storms, flooding ... so many power lines and trees down on roads! Last night was an all night LOUD t-storm with no power. We finally got our power and internet (and phones) back tonight. I was scared and whimpering a lot. I didn't like that very LOUD noise that shook the house for hours. Mom made me take a long nap today and early to bed tonight. We were lucky, only a few trees down with power lines on two different nights. We lost trees on our property too. Hope every bird is fine, missed you.
Hugs

Hi everybirdy!
Tia here, sorry I haven't been around in quite awhile, sooooo much has been going on, I'll let u know all about it. Mom FINALLY unpacked the box that contained her notebook that has everybirdy's page #s! Today, mom & I ask for ur prayers.

A good friend of mom's has an adorable 4 yr old daughter, Mila. The past 14 months have been a horrific nightmare for Dawn, Mila's mother. Mila was born with Li Fraumeni Syndrome, which is an EXTREMELY RARE genetic condition. Certain receptors shut off & leaves that person very prone to cancer. Last summer, Mila began acting strangely...bobbing her head around, running into things, suddenly falling down & grabbing her head & screaming. Her pediatrician immediately ordered a brain MRI. Dawnh& Neil were devastated to learn that their precious 3 yr old daughter had Choroid Plexus Carcinoma, an EXTREMELY RARE & very aggressive brain cancer. Mila had brain surgery 3 days later. It was touch & go for the 1st week, they had to restart her heart 4 times. Miraculously, she made it thru, although she spent 3 months in intensive care. She was released fromthe hospital 2 days before Christmas...a true Christmas miracle...Mila had ABSOLUTELY NO mental deficit! Since then, she must have an MRI every 3 months. All of them had been perfectly spotless - until her MRI last week.

Mila now has 2 aggressive tumors - the larger one, the size of a small navel orange, & the other is a bit larger than a golfball. The larger one is in the same spot as the one removed last year, but it is tangled in her nerves & has been deemed inoperable. She will once again have to endure chemotherapy & this time start radiation. The smaller tumor will be removed. I just spoke to her mom Dawn, they will be leaving for Children's Hosp in Pittsburgh in a couple hrs. Mila will be having brain surgery tomorrow morning at 7:30am. to remove the smaller tumor & hopefully be able to remove part at least part of the larger one. We are all heartbroken that this precious little girl hasto go thru tthis again. I hope all our dear friends will say a special prayer for Mila, that God in Heaven will once again restore her health! Thank you my dear friends & God Bless u all.
Love
TiaMaria & mom Sandy

V4U today. The tropical hibiscus that we have are very small except for the one tree, and that's not very big, either. They won't take up too much room in the house once winter is here. We plan to put them in front of our dining room window (how lovely, yes) LOL LOL We are really behind on answering our blogs. There's nothing new, just been busy as always. We had a nice Labor Day Weekend. The weather was cloudy and cool on Sunday, which was great. Yes, the hot and humid weather has returned. Hopefully we'll have fall weather soon. Wishing you a nice day. From, Mayo

  Hi
Please tell your mom to watch for a package in the mail on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Hope you had a nice Labor Day. We didn't have a BBQ today. Instead, northern Michigan had a nasty t-storm and a tornado. Three areas were hit but, no one was hurt just houses, cars, trees. The tornado was 20 miles south of us. We lost several trees on our property. Our power was out because a tree fell on the wires and took them down on the road. This was next door to us. My parronts went to town and came home with chicken. We ate our dinner in the dark with a flash light. I don't like eating in the dark! We are finally with power again ...YAY!

Tell your mom to put up a page for the lovies here. We don't know when the other site will be ready to go. And, we are all staying on the BC to the end.

It's Saturday and we have some sun! In between the rain our temps have been between 75 and 78 with humidity. That's right, you heard 78!!!! Ahhhh, it was nice to bask in the sun for a while before the next rain came. The only downside of the weekend is the bike people are back! Yes, it's the DALMAC weekend. They start in Lansing and end up on the Mackinac Bridge (3rd longest suspension bridge of 5 miles) walk on Sunday. There are three routes with 1500 bicycles on each route. Our scenic road is one of them, lucky us. Just try to get down our curvy wooded road with them riding 2,3,and sometimes 4 across! They will all be gone on Monday and back to normal around here. Meanwhile I'm enjoying what sun and warm temps we have. Then tonight is the fun Milonga Fair. See you there.

V4U today. There's nothing new here. Mom's just been so busy as always. There are now 4 tropical hibiscus on our deck and 1 hardy hibiscus planted in the yard. LOL :) They were all on clearance and needed a good home so home they came! LOL :) One of the hibiscus is in especially poor condition so hopefully it will bounce back after some TLC. It's been so hot and humid here, the mosquitoes are as big as birds. Not really, but you know what I mean. LOL :) Have a good day. From, Mayo

  HI SOCIETY OF FINCHES!!!
Thank you for stopping by everyday with your votes...Yes, only 2 more days to go....V4U...Sorry about not getting my campaign blog out earlier but Mom had some appointments today...Today I will talk about Future Trends....The growing interest in cockatiels stems partly from the development of the various colors.Whereas several colors of budgerigar are known to have been seen first in flocks in Australia,no mutation of the cockatiel has ever been recorded from the wild.In their native habitat,cockatiels range widely over frequently inhospitable terrain in search of food and water.They have evolved their powerful flight to enable them to cover these large distances;at the same time,their rapid and high reproductive capacity is an essential ingredient for the survival of the species in a region where rainfall-and therefore a supply of grasses and other green food-can be highly unpredictable.At present, the natural appearance of the cockatiel has been little altered by selective breeding, in noticeable contrast to the budgerigar.However,this could change quite rapidly as increasing numbers of cockatiels are exhibited.Should the trend favor larger cockatiels on the show bench,then breeders will obviously aim to conform to such requirements.This carries with it a risk that the natural grace and elegance of the cockatiel will be lost in a stampede for size in exhibition birds.Thankfully, this does not appear to be the case at present,but the risk remains,especially while there are no official standards for exhibition cockatiels laid down in many countries......Hope your Thursday has been a nice one...Many birdie wing hugs...Sam :o)

  HI SOCIETY OF FINCHES!!!
Well my friends do you really want everyday to go perfect?...I am guessing that will never happen....Thanks for your votes...V4U...Today I will finish the second part of "Treating a Sick Bird"....Make sure that water is freely available; a sick Cockatiel will find it easier to drink from an open hook-on-container, rather than a tubular drinker.Put food within easy reach; sick birds can sometimes be persuaded to feed from the hand, but do not cause them stress at any stage. As the cockatiel's condition improves, you can gradually lower the temperature of its surroundings. Before returning a bird to its regular cage, make sure that it is fully recovered and re-acclimatized. Egg-binding is another very serious condition that often happens to female Cockatiels.Sometimes they continue to lay eggs and they must be watched closely. Because one egg might get stuck in the vent and if it is not removed it could become fatal to the cockatiel.A bird in this condition must be handled very gently, so as not to break the egg.The most effective treatment is usually an injection of calcium, given by a veterinarian.This appears to restore the the muscular activity, so that the female cockatiel can lay the egg without difficulty.In extreme cases your veterinarian may undertake surgery as a last resort..Check your cockatiels diet after a case of egg-binding. It may be that insufficient cuttlefish bone was available to them, or perhaps they could benefit from a supplement containing Vitamin D, which is responsible for moving calcium stores around the body.....Have a "HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY EVERYBODY"....Many birdie wing hugs....Sam :o)

  HI SOCIETY OF FINCHES!!!
Thanks for your votes....Wow!! sure am busy with the votes today....V4U..Today my campaign blog will be about "Treating a sick bird"....Accurate diagnosis of illness in cockatiels can be very difficult without laboratory assistance,but you will soon see that a bird is sick.It will sit quietly, with its plumage no longer sleek, and its eyes may be closed.The droppings will alter in appearance and,in some cases,can even show traces of blood.If you begin treatment during the early stages of the illness, there is a good possibility that the bird will make a full recovery.Antibiotic drugs,prescribed by a veterinarian if necessary, can be administered via the cockatiel's drinking water or, in more acute cases injected directly by the veterinarian.Carefully follow all instructions about dosage and never stop a course of treatment before the recommended time.Antibiotics are useful in countering bacterial disease, but are of little direct value in viral and most fungal infections. Fortunately, viral infections are uncommon in cockatiels and the main problem involving fungi is candidiasis,which can be controlled by feeding a well-balanced diet.Sick birds need a warm environment up to 90 degrees F or 32 degrees C.You can keep them in a hospital cage with an infrared lamp.Choose a 'dull emitter'variety, because this produces heat but not light.Suspend the lamp over part of the cage.The cockatiel will then be able to adjust its position,moving closer to the heat to the heat source as necessary...Tomorrow I will continue part 2 of "Treating your sick bird"....Hope you are having a great Sunday....Birdie wing hugs to you...Sam :o)

  HI SOCIETY OF FINCHES!!!
Appreciate you stopping by with a vote for me while I am campaigning to be BOTM....Just pecked a V4U...Today my campaign blog will be about "Pelleted and Complete Foods"....Encourage your cockatiels to eat one of the brands of pelleted or complete foods now available. You can use either a diet produced for parrot-like birds, or preferably, one intended specifically for cockatiels. Pellets marketed for large parrots often prove to be rather wasteful for cockatiels, so pick small sized pellets. It is important to keep this food dry at all times. Introduce cockatiels to pelleted food my mixing it with their regular diet at first. Then cut back on the amount of seed as they start to feed on the complete diet. Because it is a complete diet, it is not usually necessary to use any supplement with foods of this type in fact using supplements can actually be harmful. Be sure that the cockatiels have adequate water available at all times, since they tend to drink more when feeding on pellets, which are very dry. Any shortage of water may be dangerous to the birds health.....Have a great Wednesday....Many birdie wing hugs....Sam :o)

  Dear Flockily of the Society of Finches
Our heartfelt regrets for your loss of Montgomery. We at the Henhouse are praying for your hearts to heal.
Your BOTD honors for your society are because we all love you so much. Mongomery will be wearing a special crown on the Bridge! My fister, Angel Bertie will be there, too! She always did love your cute little ways. We used to joke about all your meetings over every decision, but we were a little jealous at how closely you all worked together for the good of your flockily.
All the recently departed members of your flock are probably gathering for a meeting right now with the Lord who created you! We know He must be smiling to watch your cute, earnest meetings! Ya'll are always so cheerful, so we will know whenever a sudden smile of laugh comes to us, it comes from your sweet souls, as a result of one of your meetings! God bless you all.
Luv, Ms. Chirps, Spot, and mama Rea♥
