Oy, multiple bird syndrome hits again! I was in a small, crappy pet store and she caught my eye because they dont carry birds other than finches and parakeets. The story is that a woman bought her as a baby from a very reputable bird store and decided she freaked out her dogs, so she dumped it at this whole in the wall. They knew they couldnt properly care for her, so I bargained them down and took her home. On the way home, she screamed out "Let me out! Lets go swimming! swimming, swimming, swimming!" I've only had her about a month or so, but I've already been able to work with her and we're bonding nicely.

Rainbow Lory

Apples, crackers and lollipops

EVERYWHERE!!!!

Anything that takes the attention off of her, high pitch sounds

He likes to play with me

Bobs up and down saying, "let me out, let me out, step up, step up..." over and over until I let her out.. then she greets me with "kiss kiss, goodbye..".

Screech as loud as I can and everyones ears are bleeding until someone pays attention to me.

  With Sadness...
It is with sorrowful eyes that I keep looking at the "RIP" after your name, Jackie. I can't believe you're no longer with your flock. How Jewel must be missing her bestest friend. And your dad... oh dear, his heart's gotta just be broken over this. I know he adored you, pretty little girl. I know I do. Always enjoyed your notes- you made me laugh. The memories will always make me smile.

The world is a little less colorful with you gone, Jackie. You'll always be missed.
With luv... R ('>

  Dear Jackie...
How are ya? I trust all is well, seeing as you've logged in in the last nine days. I myself am having quite a challenge at getting mom to log me in. Spring is always a tough time for me to get her to the computer; the yard work, the weeds, the garden, the horses, the other birds in my house, they all rob too much of her time and my BC blogging suffers for it. But know that you are in my thoughts wether or not a note from me is on your page. I'm going to be brave and beg from you a note that will let me know that all is well with you, the flock and your Dad. Please share a cheery hello with Jewel for me. Hope yous-two's friendship is as close as ever. Luv to U... R ('>

Wow! A whole extra day to this year for being your friend!! Cool! I think about the pictures of you and Jewel snuggling and playing together a lot... and I always get such a warm, happy feeling, imagining how precious you two are together. Bird Talk Magazine needs to publish one of the two of you together, to show that friendship is possibly no matter the size difference in birds!! You're a unique and special couple of feathered friends. Love you both! R ('>

Rainbow here! How are ya? From your pictures it appears you and Jewel are the best of friends! That is SO sweet. Just look at you given her neck a wonderful preening. I'll bet she just loves you for all the itches you nibble away! How awesome that such a little bird and such a big bird can be such close friends. How's the rest of the flock? Keepin' your Dad busy I bet. I know things are hoppin' here; seems when us birds can't spend anytime outside the mess on the inside really doubles!! Dad was watchin' Mom sweep up a pile of seed hulls and feathers, string pieces, splintered wood and shredded paper and asked, "Is that all from this weekend?" Mom laughed out loud and said, "No, this is just from last evening and this morning!!" We birds make lots of work for our parronts, don't we. And yet they still love us!! Yeaaaaaa!! It's been a whoppin' 5 degrees outdoors here today! That's just a tad bit too chilly for me to go out! It's so unusually cold right now that the tile floor in my room is actually cold!! So Mom's got an extra heater plugged in and aimed right at me so that I don't get chilled while I sleep. I'll bet it's been downright cold at your house here lately also. Well, with Jewel to cuddle close to I'm bettin' that you and she will stay warm together. Hope all is well with you, the flock and your family. Thinkin' of ya... R ('>

  Hi from Lonnie
Good Morning Big Bird, Jackie, I just love the help I get on BC. Today, I decided to take Zeus advice. I think and just let Ellie build our nest herself. I love her to death and just want to help but she reminds me that for safety sake I cannot put material so close to the hole. She thinks the chicks will fall out. I guess she is right, but a man likes to look out the door when resting on his nest. Our teils, Ms.Skeeter and Mr. Wishbone have two eggs already and she is still laying. Beep and Peep the Zebras have 3 eggs and are expecting on January the 6th also. I guess all good things come to those who wait. I'll be patient with Ellie. Afterall, I can't lay the eggs. hehe she is the expert there. Well, got to fly...Here is a vote for you and your flock too. It is from all of us. Yes, Fortune has the Big Head.....Patrick and I love it for him though. Happy 2008 my friend. Lonnie

  Hiya Backatcha!!
Jackie! Thanks so much for thinkin' of me and stoppin' by my page. I've not been very successful at gettin' my mom to lounge in front of the computer much these days. She tells me we'll definitely do more of it when the snow flys but I don't wanna wait that long!! Besides, if I have to wait for snow in order to write to my friends, well, I might never get to write-we get less and less snow here each year. You'd think that would make a tropical bird happy but because I want my mom to have more time for writing I hope we get snowed in for weeks!! I wonder what you've been keepin' yourself busy with these days. You and Jewel still hangin' out together or is her beak gettin' big enough you're using more caution around her? She's seems like such a sweetie, I can just picture you two being buddies forever! Trust the rest of the flock's doing fine. All the birdies here at my place are doin' great. There's never a quiet moment-if one of us is nappin' another one takes over the singin' or squawkin'. We wouldn't want anyone to forget there are birds in the house! Good to hear from you. Take care!

  Well, hello there.
It was good hearing from you. I'm glad you are all doing good. That's great that you and Jewel are best friends. I have been trying to behave myself but some days Mama says I'm a little brat, but, that's part of being a lory. Take care and if you get a chance stop and see me again. I'm off to leave you a vote.

  Hey Jackie.
How have you been? I've been staying out of trouble this whole week. I have been letting Mama pick me up even when I know it's time to get back in my cage. She is going to a bird show Saturday and I want her to bring me back something super special. Mama says that's why I've been so good. We'll just have to see how long this well behaved spell lasts. I voted for you. Later, Skittles.

  Hello Jackie.
Mama didn't have to work today so we were all out and about. I was on top of my cage, Starburst's cage and Zeemore's cage, on the dresser, on the nightstand,and on and under the bed. I ignored the playgyms cause I was having too much fun hopping from place to place. I was good, though, when Mama wanted to get me back in my cage. I only evaded her for about 10 minutes before I let her pick me up. Have a good weekend! I voted for ya'. Skittles

  Rainbow here!
Jackie! I'm thrilled to hear that you and Jewel are gettin' along so well. That's cool! It's gotta help that Jewel is young and at a great age to 'train', meaning you can show her the ropes and let her know who's in charge at your house. I imagine your smaller size doesn't deter you from rulin' the roost if need be!! I'm the biggest bird here and sometimes I get told what to do by the smaller birds here! They're not afraid of me ...most of the time, anyway. Of course I don't want you thinkin' I'm a big push-over 'cause I could bounce those little 'tiels if I needed to! Guess I just haven't needed to yet! They like to come over to my space and eat all the little seeds that I don't care for in my dry-mix bowl. Once it looks like I've eatten well Mom refills the bowl and I end up with lots of my favorites again! What have you been doing with those apples Dad picked? Are they sliced up and served to you or are they hanging in your cage now as something to play with and destroy? That right there is a great idea; think I'll suggest Mom hang an apple in my cage and let me beat it up! Well Jackie, I hope life's going great at your place. I'm gonna flap over to Jewel's page and say Howdy to her! R ('>

It was good hearing from you. Fresh apples? Yummy. I guess you and Jewel grooming each other does get a laugh. I'm glad she's gentle, though. Just don't ever make her mad, girlfriend, cause she's a LOT bigger than you. I left a vote for you as I came in. I'll be seeing you. Skittles

  Hi, Jack.
So, has anyone found out your guilty secret about bathing in Jewel's water bowl, yet? I bet she would raise the alarm if she caught you. Mama was playing bluegrass music, today, (of all things) and I actually liked it. Every time I heard that banjo thing, I started hopping around all over the place. A few of the others were getting into it, also. I guess you never know what's going to strike your fancy. Here's a vote. Later, Skittles

  Hey, Pretty Girl!
Rainbow here! How's it goin' with Jewel and the rest of the flock? Bet you all are just havin' a grand time! What a party!! How's your dad doin'? Hopefully he's feelin' better, what with all the lovin' comin' from you guys. Keep it up, Jackie, he needs ya! There's a picture on my page of me and one of the two Greys that also live here. We rarely hangout together so there are few photo opportunities for Group Shots! Due to inquires from some of my friends about my flockmates, Mom made a point of getting a picture of the two of us together. We tend to get into Beak Battles when too close... it's all Kelly's fault, I assure you. Wait, Mom givin' me the Evil Eye...I guess it's not totally Kelly's fault... sometimes I try and see if I can back her off of her cage when I come for a 'visit'! Sometimes that smaller bird gets all brave and insistant and makes ME get off HER cage! Well, the nerve!! You and Jewel should get along wonderfully as she's just a baby and getting to know you and your expectations while she's young. Well, just wanted to say 'Hi'...hope your weekend's a good one, Jackie! R ('>

Hey, that's a gorgeous Big Sister you've got there. Jewel appears to be such a sweetie, already sittin' nicely beside you on the play gym. It's great that we're now able to post lots of pictures 'cause I get to see a variety of photos that include some of the other members of your flock! Wow, you have a neat family! A couple of Amazons, a 'Tiel, a Quacker & a Macaw. If it weren't for that tiel you'd be the smallest one there. Somethin' tells me, tho, that you've got the BIGGEST personality of 'em all. Tell me it's true!! I've been thinkin' lots about you but haven't been able to write as Mom's been gone AGAIN. This bein' left is gettin' old! The featherless brother that takes care of me does ok but life just ain't the same without the one who rises each day just for ME! I know you know what I'm talkin' about; your Dad obviously loves you all so much! I can tell by happy he looks in the pictures with all of you. I hope his heart is feeling better everyday after the tough break it went through. You birds keep bein' all charming, cute and loving and it'll help him feel better, huh?! Take care, Jackie! R ('>

  Hi again from Woof and Meow
Also just wanted to say hi to a fellow New Yorker. We never heard of a lorie who likes to go swimming. Bathing, yes, but swimming, no. We live in the Park Slope area of Brooklyn and our owner bought us from a bird store in Manhattan called Urban Bird. It's not around anymore, but it was a cool store. All the birds were out and about, although the bigger birds were sorta kept in their area from smaller ones. There was a big window in front of the store, and every now and then, a bunch of sun conures would sit in the window to stare at the passersby, who would stop to admire how straight and pretty they sat in the window.

Come visit me, Woof and Meow.

Hi Jackie -- Congratulations on the new addition to your family. I hope you have a lot of fun with him. Caiques are fun too, and about as lively as lories. You're a really pretty lorie. Here's a vote. And I hope you get to have a caique in your future at some point!

Jackie!! So great to hear from you! Sorry I couldn't write back right away; Mom's been away from eight long, miserable days and I wasn't allowed access to the computer in her absence. I wonder why?! Anyway, your news is SO exciting... a B&G flockmate at your house! Wow! Are you in for some excitement! I'm sorry, tho, about the troubles with your Mommy. Thank goodness your Dad has you to work at cheering him up. It could take a lot of kisses and charming Jackie-behavior to help him feel better but I know you're just the bird for the job. Who could resist your darlingness!! I & my Mom send him love, hope and friendship. A new Macaw oughta help too! Wow, Jackie, are you prepared for such a BIG bird in the house? Actually, I have to confess here, I've not been around to meet the other members of your flock...something I usually do when I make a new friend...get to know who you live with. Maybe you're already used to big birds. Then again, maybe YOU're the biggest in the house...up to the point! I promise, once all my note writing is caught up that I'll flap around and introduce myself to your flockmates. And I look forward to meeting your newest sister. She' aughta love you... you're such a sweetie...keepin' her new space warm until she arrives! Catch ya soon, Jack. I know your weekend's gonna be an exciting one! R ('>

Just stopping by to say hello and give you a vote. Mama took my eggs out and I didn't even mind very much. I'm back to my loving self, again, and Mama and I are buddies once more. I had some cream of wheat for breakfast this morning. It was good but a bit messy. Mama will have to put my bathing bowl in here so I can clean up. Looking forward to hearing from you, again.

  Hello, Jackie.
I saw a note from you on my friend's site and thought I would say hi, from one rainbow lorikeet to another. We rainbows are special. I'm glad you have a good home, now. Everyone needs to be loved. I have been a little on the grouchy side, lately, because I've been busy laying eggs. I'll be back to my sweet, lovable self after Mama gets to take my "babies" away. I have a cage to myself, but I still do the egg thing every so often. I'm leaving you a vote while I'm here. I'll talk to you, later. Skittles

Hey-new pictures! Oooo! You're so pretty, Jackie! That's a really neat shot of you; the mirror reflecting your sweet little face! Doesn't the sun feel good. I love to go outside. I spent most of yesterday outdoors. Got a spray-bath in the afternoon so I'd have plenty of time to dry out. I spent the day in the walk-in aviary. Normally I scream my fool head off when I'm put in that particular pen but for some reason I was cool with the idea yesterday. Only problem out there is that my food sits on the ground and I don't like to get down there to eat so I was pretty hungry by the time Mom took me back in the house in the evening! There's a rabbit that lives in that pen...you'd think I'd know to trust them, seeing that YOU hang out with rabbits and you're SMALLER than me! Trust all is well with you...lookin' forward to hearing an undate on your neck of the woods! Until then...R ('>
