I saw an ad on the internet offering Jesse for sale at a good price. I inquired and was told he was very aggressive and hard to handle. I went to meet Jesse and decided to take on the challenge of living with a bird that bites aggressively. He has improved 110% since I started teaching by positive re enforcement

  Zena's hatchday
Zena's hatchday will be next week. Eight years old already! I've been having to give her antibiotic drops twice a day. There was a sore under one eye and at the corner of her beak. The avian vet thinks it might have been from some injury in the cage. Though her cage is fairly large, we guess she must have gotten into a night fright that we missed and she injured herself. We only noticed the scabs a few days ago and immediately took her to the vet. Nothing serious and the scab under her eye is already healing up nicely.

It was a real surprise to discover my beak in the winner's spot yesterday, let me tell you.

  kitchen rennovation
Birds don't seem overly upset with all the banging in the kitchen. The area is completely sealed off with plastic so no dust or other debris is affecting them. Birds are adjusting but it is tough for us with no kitchen! We'll be away for part of the time and by the time we get back, a lot of the work will be done. Tessa seems to enjoy all the commotion the most for some reason. She's been whistling at all the people working here!

  This and that part II
Our kitchen is all torn apart now. We are preparing meals with just a toaster or the microwave. Birdies are just fine because the only thing that gets heated up is the birdie bread and I use the microwave for that every morning anyway. But the stove is out of commission and the kitchen sink is going away this morning. We'll use the bathroom sink for water. It is a bit more travelling around to get things done in the morning, but we'll survive. My wife and I are off on a vacation the end of this week for 10 days so a lot of work should be able to get done while we are away. We have a house sitter coming to take care of the Pembrokes and birdies.

We had some rain yesterday and now everything is a sheet of ice. It was tough to walk the dogs this morning.
Everybirdie has had breakfast. With the cages consolidated, it doesn't take as long. When I am chopping up veggies, Babette and Teddie always come to the kitchen (our Pembroke Welsh Corgis) and they wait patiently until each of them gets a carrot. Well, maybe not so patiently :-)

  change of routine
Wednesday and Thursday are the 'tear apart' cage cleaning days. I usually do them in two stages because it takes so long. But our kitchen demolition starts tomorrow and I'm not sure how much I'll be able to use the kitchen sink, so I did them all today. It wasn't too bad. I used to do them in one day anyway, but it has been a while since I've done them that way. Besides there are three cages less to clean as we had to consolidate birds to get everything out of the way. The cordon bleus were in there own cage for breeding, but they never did anything for two years so I put them back in the larger aviary with the Gouldians. Then we had one lone owl finch so he went in that cage as well. Everyone settled out rather quickly with the move, so it was just fine. And a lone Dybowski twin spot finch went into a divided cage. Cuts down on a lot of work. It will be great to have a new kitchen so it is all worthwhile.

  Getting ready for a new kitchen
My wife and I cleared out the kitchen in advance of the renovation and all the birds are situated in their new, temporary spots. It is a bit cramped maneuvering around, but it will work while the construction is being done. We cut down on three cages. The cordon bleu finches moved in with the Gouldians along with one male owl finch. They are all fine together in the larger aviary. The Dybowski twin spot finch went into a split cage with the budgie breeding pair. He is by himself on one side of the cage and the budgies are on the other. The budgies are completely fascinated and the twin spot doesn't seem to mind. I'm so used to a pattern of giving breakfast to the various birds that I was confused this morning about what I was doing!

  Another nor'easter on the way
We have a forecast for another nor'easter for Thursday. Forecast is calling for 10-15" of snow. Guess we should start preparing now.
Tessa was grooming my beard last night. She was getting a little overzealous so I encouraged her to go back to my shoulder. My hair had always been short and I have been letting it grow long just because I wanted to try a change. Tessa moved up to my shoulder and then started grabbing strands of my hair one by one and running them through her beak! Pretty funny.
We are starting a major kitchen renovation next week so we have been working on getting the birdies out of the way of the construction. Debris from the construction is not a major concern though because our contractor is walling off the construction area.

  Musical cages on a snowy day
We're stuck indoors with a pretty good snowstorm going. Good day for some clean up and housekeeping (and, next step: back an apple pie!). We're having some construction done starting in a few weeks so I had to consolidate some birds into one cage and make some room. The Cordon bleu pair was in a breeding cage. They used to be in with the Gouldians. They had been in that cage by themselves for a couple of years with no results so I put them back in with the Gouldians and that cut down on one cage. Then we had an owl finch that was all alone in his own cage and we added him to the larger Gouldian aviary so that was a second cage taken care of. The finches all are happy together so that was pretty easy. That frees up a bit of space and cuts down on some cage cleaning chores for me.

  Nippy lady
Tessa has been a brat lately. I sit in the chair next to her cage and open the door. She immediately comes out and climbs up to my shoulder. Then she climbs down and starts tugging at my left sleeve. What do you want? She gets pretty aggressive with it, so I have to discourage her. Then she bows down her head and starts making these clucking noises. Must be some kind of nesting behavior.
We took Zena and one of the other parrotlets to the avian vet the other day for beak trims. Zena has to go every 3 months. Zorro last had to go two years ago, but his beak got to a point where we thought as long as we were bringing Zena, we might as well bring Zorro. Zorro is a blue parrotlet and is in a cage with his mate, Zelda. They don't have a page here. Anyway, its a two hour round trip to the avian vet for a 10 minute appointment. Still, its worth the trip because we trust our avian vet to do a good job and they know how to handle the birds.

  Gracie
Our Lady Gouldian, Gracie went over the Rainbow Bridge this morning. She was my first bird. Gracie was very old for a Gouldian and had been declining for several months. Three of her children that she raised are still with us. I found a nice spot in the garden for her. Fortunately, the ground wasn't entirely frozen and I was able to provide a proper resting place for her.

  Love the photo
Nice photo of Jesse! I really should get some new photos going of the birdies, especially Tessa as I haven't taken some of her in a while.
Tessa always needs to investigate what I'm doing whether inside or outside the cage. This afternoon, I was topping off seed containers that live under her cage. I was sitting on the floor while doing this, so of course, Tessa had to come down to the bottom of the cage and investigate everything with her 'evil eye'. She is such a kick! Bet that would have made a good photo.

  Zena's beak trim
Zena had her beak trimmed by the avian vet the other day. Vet drew a little blood on the bottom beak as she was trying to get it down some more, but Zena was just fine. First time the vet ever did that and we go 4 times a year. Zena is a green rump and they seem to have the problem with the beaks growing. As soon as Zena came home she dived right into her breakfast cup and ate her birdie bread!

How is everybirdie? Tessa managed to squeeze out of the cage through her food cup door while I was changing the cup. She blocked the swinging latch from coming down and got out. Tessa thought it was playtime, but it was getting off to work for Dad. So I just completed the rest of my morning chores, while she hung out, but no luck...she knew she wasn't supposed to be out. She got between the cage and the wall so I had to get the net which has a long handle. I used the handle end to encourage her out but once she was out she flew over to Zena's cage. Step up just wouldn't work here, so I just netted her and brought her back to the cage. Later at night she had her usual out time. When I am sitting down in the chair by her cage, she hangs out and goes back inside on her own. Such a funny girl.

  Very bratty bird
Tessa was out at her usual time last night and moved off my shoulder on to the back of the chair I was sitting in. She was playing around back there for a while and later on I turned my shoulder to see where she was and she was no where in sight. So I whistled to her and she whistled back but I still didn't know where she was. Finally figured out she was under the blanket which was draped over the back of the chair. My wife, Char came over and lifted the blanket up and Tessa was caught by her toe on a loose thread. As Char was prying the thread off her toe, Tessa latched on to her finger with her beak pretty hard. She was biting down for all she was worth. Ungrateful bird! I finally distracted her and Tessa let go of Char's finger. No blood drawn, but it sure must of hurt. Tessa went back to playing around and finally went back on her own to the inside of her cage. Poor Char.

  New Birdie bread
The new birdie bread is a big hit with everyone. I baked up an 'original loaf' from Momma Bird's Café. I also bought the bag that makes the Harvest loaf but I haven't had time to cook it up yet. The bread freezes really well. I cut it up into squares and zap it in the microwave for 15 seconds and it is perfect. I have enough squares from the one loaf I made for about two weeks. I'll make up the Harvest loaf this week-end and then try both out to see which one the birds like most.
