  Youy look awful happy in your new home. Did you know my name was Oscar for a few months? The lady at the rescue changed my name to Oscar. Mom changed it back to Calypso for me since I LOVE saying my name! Do you have any presents under your tree yet? Mom hasn't put any under ours. I think she's thinking I might sneak a peak when she's not looking. Mom's going to make us Birdie Berry Almond Drops today. She's trying a new recipe so I hope it turns out! Here's a vote! Calypso

Rose’s mom here. Rosalie is, once again, hospitalized. At this point, her life is not immediately threatened, although what we are dealing with is serious. I have posted a note on her page giving a brief explanation of what has happened to date, if you would like to learn the details. Please keep her in your prayers. Many thanks, Eva

Alex, it is So sad for all of us, those that followed your lifes work in the news & those that just heard of you, that you couldn't stay with us earth bound mortals longer to teach us more, we still have so much to learn. And you were a patient teacher. You will be dearly missed, I am sure Griffin and Aurthur are greiving also.~ ~ Fly high, fly straight, fly amongst the clouds and those other feathered angels in the sky above us, always....... ....... 7 ....... .......

  `Ǖ´ Extry!! Extry!! Read All About It! <~)
I’ve got a baby sis, and I’m gonna SHOUT IT!!! ~~ I’m sorry I haven’t been in touch with you like I shoulda been recently; like I woulda LIKED; like I think I OUGHTA! This summer has been really BIG for me!! It’s my first summer in the South. It’s the first time I’ve EVER had my own web page. It’s the first time Mom and I have ever had to ‘play Nurse’ for my Dad. A-N-D… it’s the first baby MACAW sister I’ve ever gotten! (Wait for it…it’s comin’. I promise!) ~~ We’re all having a challenge getting used to the climate here in SC (compared to what I’ve known all my life up in MI). When I first got down here, it seemed really neat to be able to go outside for a walk in March and April. Now, I can’t even imagine how hot a 117° heat index feels ‘cause Mom won’t let us out in it! (Now that I think about it, SHE doesn’t go out in it either!) ~~ Mom and I have been havin’ SO MUCH FUN meetin’ all our new f[eathe]riends, Dad’s beginnin’ to EXPECT to find us in front of the computer whenever he loses sight of us (or in the middle of the night, when he gets up to go potty!). And I know that you know that we just don’t know how to send SHORT notes! (Case in point: THIS ONE!) ~~ Then there was Dad’s gall-dern bladder exor-cision the first part of July. Man! Did he take a looong time getting’ back to work after that one. And, o’course, Yours Truly got to bein’ his favorite care taker during his recovery. I’ll tell ya a secret: I think he took a long time to heal ON PURPOSE, ‘cause he liked the brand of TLC he got from Mom and me. ~~ And the toughest part of the summer has been waiting (until Dad was better enough) to be able to bring home my new baby Green-Winged Macaw sister!!! Her name is Ruby Francesca Begonia!! And she was hatched May 3, 2006! (Mom’s birthday is May 2! Neat, huh?!) ~~ Last week, I got to go stay with her (in the cage next to her) at the bird store where she has been livin’ until we brought her home with us. My best pal, Rainbow, the Harlequin Macaw, called it ‘Camp Get Acquainted’! And get acquainted, WE DID!! While I was at camp, Mom and Dad got us both new cages and set ‘em up in our living room on either side of the computer so’s we can each dictate our correspondence to our BirdChannel friends right from the comfort of our own cribs. So Mom got to work, once Rubes was home, makin’ up a brand new web page just for the Rubicube. And THAT’s really the reason for my note today. We want to invite all my buddies, my pals, my friends to stop by Ruby’s page and say “Hi” to the new baby. You’ll like her. She’s CUTE!!! ~~ Thanks so much for stayin’ in touch with us. We plan to be back on top of all our correspondence again, startin’ now. After you visit my new sis, stop by and see me. I’ll be lookin’ for ya! ~<~)~

  No Felix, huh? Are you maybe a...Grouch?!
I can't imagine that being the case. You're far too cute! And your family is far too nice for you to have anything to be 'grouchy' about. (Not to mention that really cool 'forest' you live in--waterfalls and all!) Mom just has this thing for individual nicknames and, since she's the one doin' the typing, I kinda hafta go along. Ya know?~~ Guess what?! I get to go meet my new vet here in SC next Tuesday! Mom says it's my turn to get a new doc, since we moved down here from MI in January this year. Mom and Dad did; the cats did; the dog did; and now ME. After I get my 'Well-Bird Check' I'm gonna go spend about a week at the bird store, livin' in the cage right next to my new GW baby sister. The folks there said they would do that so's we can get acquainted 'on neutral ground'. Then she FINALLY gets to come home with us. I'm startin' to get just a little excited about it now. Mom is gonna double check with Dr. Jose about my feathers while we're there. Sort of a little 'free' training and education, she says. And she wants me to say "Thank You" for the warning about the 'poopy stuff' on the internet. She always tries to get a few different perspectives on an issue when the information is coming from an unknown source. That's why she appreciates your input, 'cause you're a person who has experience in the matter!~~ I guess it's time for me to go do a little 'fancy footwork' on your umbrella now. Have a great weekend, Blue! -<`)-

  Is there a Felix to your Oscar?
Good evening, kind sir. Since my mom started this whole conversation about my yucky-looking feathers, she has been paying a little closer attention to the random markings on the feathers of other birds too. I'm getting a baby Green Wing sister, and she seems to have some (although not quite as much) dis-coloration at the ends of some of her feathers too. (Meaning "She dis took da color right off!") The owner of the bird store where Ruby is living until we bring her home with us told Mom that her feathers are 'pretty beat up' because she is just a toddler, and she crawls around her cage and lays on her back playing with her toys a lot. Now, mind you, I AM NO TODDLER. But Mom just realized, watching me today, that I tend to crawl all over my cage, and sqwoush my feathers pretty good too sometimes. Thanks for reassuring her, and making her more aware of ME!~~ Now I have a question for you. Is that Frank in the picture in the center, on the top? And, I'm gonna take a wild guess that that's YOU on his shoulder? Do you always sit on his left shoulder, like I always sit on Mom's left shoulder? Somethin' about that side that just seems more stable to me. Does that mean that I'm 'left-brained'? (Or does it mean that my brain LEFT?!)~~ How is Jolly doing? I haven't stopped by her page, either, since we last visited. Mom's gonna take me there in just a couple minutes. But I wanted to say "Hey!" and do a little dance on your vote 'umbrella'. Watch how my fancy footwork makes the number go up for "... friends voted for how cool I am." See ya! -<`)-

  Hey Oscar
Thanks for all of your help. I have not been to Rose's page yet to tell her what you thought of the feathers but I will if you haven't yet. I am glad your Dad got Miss Jolly out of where she was. With that bad wing it must not have been good. Mom got me from a lady who didn't have time for me at all. You should have seen the pictures of my beak when mom first got me. It was so long it was sticking me in the neck. Mom had the vet trim it and she tried to fix the damage to the top of my beak but it didn't work. Well, I'll go talk to Rose and tell her what you said about the black. I'll have her check out your pictures too. Thanks for being a great friend..
Big Hugs,

Hey Oscar! Thanx for soaring to the rescue. Those feathers you're showing are exactly what I'm talkin' about. Am I understanding correctly that my beautiful colors actually rub off?! Do you have any idea what causes it? Am I preening it off; or maybe not doing or eating something I should to make my color-glue not stick like it ought to? I am greatly relieved to learn that others of my kin experience the same thing, but is there something I should be doing about it? Or is this just normal everyday stuff for us Macaws? I so appreciate your sharing your knowledge (for my mom's sake) and the special time and effort your making to help us out. Here's a 'Thank You' vote for your trouble. -<`)-

  Hi Oscar
My Auntie Conny said maybe you could help my mom out. We have a friend who has a B&G that is having problems with her feathers. There are black tips on her feathers. Her name is Rosalie Hale Bop and she comes to my site each day. She has the pictures of hwer feathers on her profile. Do you think your dad could take a look at them and maybe help her out? I would appreciate it. Gave you a vote..

Just wondering if your Mom made that spaghetti yet? How are you doing? Are you all settled in and being properly spoiled I suppose. That is what we are for we share our beauty and kisses we get spoiled and get spaghetti and treats, I may get a thing called a dumpling tommorrow. Your parents are very lucky to have such beautiful children.

  Hi Oscar
Mom got me some of that Pluck no more. I have been taking it for 5 days now. I am also getting Red Palm oil, Flax oil, Wheat Germ, and acidophylis culture, as well as a Quickon Bio vitamins. The vet is big on being natural if at all possible. They think I need more nutrition, as my beak should not be black. Thanks for the tip~~Hollie
