Hi! My name is Cu-Bird Happy New Year-I laid an egg 12/31/13!

I am a Timneh African Grey from Newton, NJ.

Cute Bird, Crouton, Junior, Mini Me and Brat Bird for now. My full name is Cuchulain, a mythical Irish warrior is my given name by my former owners. Mom thinks Cu Bird is short for "Cute Bird"-can't argue that!

11 years old   F

Timneh African Grey

Papaya, turkey breast, watermelon, pizza crust.

Anyone's shoulder, I'm a social climber and on that T stand! I also like to snuggle and cuddle with mom.

I hate to be left out of all the fun! My frother Blue--gets real nosey and comes over on my cage. Now that I have moved, I am Elvis's neighbor, so much happier now!

I get to go all over the place with mom. I also get to sit on Aunt Jeanne's shoulder when she visits. I love the formation of the African Delegation here with my fister Miranda and my frother Boomer who moved in with Meiko's flock. It is much fun with culture, history and music. And we get to watch movies with the family at night!

I would rather escape from my cage and hang out on the T stand. I now have mastered the art of getting on the bottom of my cage and chasing the mop when mom does the floor..

"I'm NOT Miranda!" "And, I'm definitely NOT a Paterson grey pigeon!".

  Hi CuBird
Of course, come on over for Easter! I do my own thing, I dance back and forth on a perch, but my favorite thing to do is to shred anything I can get hold of. I go under my grate and get into the paper on my tray if mom forgets to put a chunk of the phone book, some paper towels, or coffee filters in my cage. The boys are too young yet, and Maxine is probably too tired to do anything. The doves lay eggs like clockwork every month.
Oh no, poor Nigel! Even though he's a villain, that's too bad.
Mom meant to share this on Monday, but forgot. Remember when she was at the parrot class on Sunday? Well, she learned something new there that all of us should be aware of. You know that zinc is toxic to birds, but did you know that there is zinc in those rubber balls, footballs, and all other soft rubber toys? Mom didn't know that! No more of that stuff in our cages for sure.
Today mom did the mammal nursery and the groundhog that's out in the first RVS cage. The groundhog is looking pretty good, should be gone soon. There were several squirrel babies in the mammal nursery as well as one injured adult possum. Many of the squirrels are still being hand fed, but a couple have their eyes open and are eating on their own now. It seems so soon!
Hope you are having a nicer day than we are. It got down into the low 20s last night, and it's slow to warm up today. The sun is out, but it's still really cold. I hope you get lots of love today, too. Hugs, Falco

  Hi CuBird
Is it the same villain? Mom loved him in the first movie, because every time he got mad, he'd puff dust all around him. She thought that was cute, and the fact that of all the birds in the movie, he was about the only one out of place geographically was funny, too.
Bree didn't get here yesterday for our birdicures, so mom is hoping she makes it today.
Mom went shopping in the snow today for Easter dinner. She got all the stuff except for salad makings and the greens for wedding soup. She'll get those late in the week. It is snowing today, but not sticking, so we have hopes the daffodils, tulips that haven't been eaten by the deer, hyacinths, and of course forsythia and lilacs will survive. It's going into the low 20s tonight, but there should be a warmup by Thursday. At least that's what the weather guys said. Today we have mom for the rest of the day, but she will be scrubbing our cages down, which we all hate. Just when you get stuff where you want it, along comes somebody to move it and clean it, then you have to start over again. I say phooey to that! Hope you are having a good day with nice weather.

  Hi CuBird
Well of course I didn't complete my thoughts yesterday! Sorry! Mom went to her regular eye doc on Monday, and she sent her to a retinal specialist on Tuesday. They diagnosed wet macular degeneration, and started a series of 3 shots. They did the first one on Tuesday, will do the second in May and the third in June. Hopefully that will arrest the progress of the disease.
Thanks for the prayers, mom feels good to hear that so many people care enough to pray for her.
Mom talked to a friend at the museum yesterday who has the same thing in both eyes. She says the shots will stop the progress of the condition, even if they don't reverse it. Mom feels they caught it in time so it's not too bad. She felt relieved to talk to her colleague too.
Polly is doing super, yesterday she hid from mom when mom was ready to carry her down the steps. Mom called to her, then she went downstairs, and Polly came right down after her. She still can't go up, but that's a great step for her. Mom can tell when they walk that Polly is feeling much better, too, because she's walking normally again.
Mom had 7 year olds today at the museum for a dino tour, and they liked it. It is raining today, so the dogs probably won't get another walk. Mom will go to the fish fry tonight to get her and her neighbor fish dinners, though. I hope you are having a good day, getting some sun and warm weather, and seeing lots of flowers. Hugs, Falco

  Hi CuBird
Tell mom to get on it, you NEED a song and a hat of your own. I must say, though, Miranda looks lovely in her new outfit, and Sam looks pretty dapper too.
I don't know what you know about mom right now because it's been a few days, but she has a retinal problem which will delay the surgery for cataract removal in the left eye. She's really really worried about it, too.
Our willow has catkins on it, the forsythia looks kind of yellow, although it's only buds, and there are buds on the azalea and lilac. The peonies are starting to come up as well, we can see little red spears near the ground. Spring must be here!!!
After many phone calls and deliberation yesterday, mom has decided to go ahead with the April 24th surgery for her right eye, so she'll have at least one with clear vision. Lens crafters say they can replace the right lens in her present glasses so that's why she made the choice.
Today mom has 2 tours at the museum, then we get her for the rest of the day, YAY! She was going to go shopping with a friend, but decided we're more important. Kind of makes us feel good, you know? HOpe you are having a beautiful sunny day like we are. Even if it doesn't get warm yet, the sun gives us hope! Hugs, Falco

Can't wait to see that video! Chyna found my hat on some human hat website. Ask her, she'll tell you where. She is far more into the hat thing than I am, but she does find me pretty ones.
Mom spent her whole shift today at the center feeding the bats, but she got to see the 2 week old babies. They are fully furred, fairly large, and still cuddling under mom's wing. Their mom ate 46 mealworms! My mom couldn't believe that little bat could put away so many, it seems her tummy wouldn't be big enough. They normally eat between 12 and 25 mealworms at a time, which still seems like a lot to mom.
On the bottom of my page, mom posted some recent pics. The first one is of Murphy at the baby shower on Saturday. He kept moving away when mom tried to get a good shot. The second one is the Great Horned Owlet that Martha is currently fostering, the third one is little photogenic Irwin, who is 2 already. The last shot is mom in the ghillie suit, so you can see how silly she looks when she feeds the owl baby. It will also be used for corvids, foxes, and any baby hawks that arrive.
Mom sees the eye doc today to make sure the bleeding stopped. She is hoping so, it seems she is seeing a bit better from that eye at least. Hope you are having a good day today, and getting some sun (we aren't) and scritchies. Hugs, Falco

  Hi CuBird
Haha, you made me chuckle with your talk. I love it! And yes, we nandays are a little bit loud, heehee. We don't have bears here, as we are too close to the city, but we do have foxes, raccoons, skunks, possums, squirrels, ground hogs (which mom swears watch the garden as closely as she does), chipmunks, and tons of amphibians, insects, and of course, birds of every stripe. Every now and then mom spots a snake or 2 as well. She loves when that happens.
Yesterday it stayed in the 40s all day, with cold winds blowing. This morning when mom walked the girls, it was in the 30s! I think Mother Nature is going backwards. There was frost on the ground too. That's sort of normal for this time of year, as long as it warms up during the day. Mom filled all the outdoor feeders with seed, suet, and peanuts in bright sunshine, so hopefully the day will warm up. We're dying to open windows here!
The baby shower event was great yesterday. Where mom and her crew were they got mostly cash donations. Some other places got more goods. What's nice about the cash is the woman who owns the store said she'd contribute a check equal to the amount of cash, doubling the donation. The other thing is the cash is easy to carry. Mom left a bit early to come home and give Polly her meds. She was going to return, but the women there said they could handle things, they'd return Murphy and all the stuff to the center. What a nice event it was, mom thinks they got a lot of stuff.
Hope you are having a sunny day and getting lots of scritchies. Hugs, Falco

  Hi CuBird
You should work on that mind of yours, you know they function best when open! That wildlife was in your yard before your folks were, you know, heehee.
It seems things are popping out all over! There are now some crocuses blooming in the yard, and it seems all the tulips, daffodils, and hyacinths are growing by the day. None has bloomed yet, but they're getting taller! It's pouring down rain right now. It rained most of the afternoon, evening, and night yesterday as well. April showers, right?
In between the showers, mom got Polly to walk around the bend in the road yesterday to our neighbor's house and back again. That was a great thing, but today it was even better. When mom came home from the museum it wasn't raining so she took both dogs around the block. Polly walked around a whole block and was fine. This healing seems to be faster than the last one was. Maybe the little trooper knows what to expect now, or she's pushing herself a bit. Whatever it is, she is doing much better this time around. Thanks to those who pray for her, for sure!
Mom had a kindergarten group this morning, and one of the new docent class members followed her tour to pick up some pointers. She hopes he learned a lot. The kids were pretty attentive for being so young. The teacher listed 2 words on her pre-visit sheet: oviparous and extinct. That's really strange, because at that age, most of the kids learn herbivorous, carnivorous, etc. and maybe extinct. Oviparous seemed a weird choice to mom, as many animals are oviparous, including the monotreme mammals. Oh well, hope they learned something at least. They were interested and excited.
I hope you continue to see signs of spring around you and the flowers are getting enough rain to pop out any day now. Get lots of hugs and scritchies today, too. Hugs, Falco

  Hi CuBird
Thanks, sweety. Mom has an appointment on Monday with her eye doc, and they didn't seem too concerned about it. Mom is probably more worried about it than she needs to be.
Thank you for helping me celebrate my day of fame today. There will be a party in the never ending party room in the castle all day long, come on by for a snack, a drink, and some fun. Cori and I will see you there.
Well, the news about Polly is fantastic, mom thinks. First of all, she walked from the car to the house yesterday, which she didn't do after the first surgery. Then twice, when mom took her outside yesterday, she walked to the curb, once even from the back door. She ate last night, and again this morning with gusto. Mom thinks this one will be a faster recovery, she's already touching down with her toe.
This morning mom cleaned after the new baby great horned owl, so she had to wear the ghillie suit. It's a jacket and hood with cut out leaves fluttering all over it, and the head piece has mesh over the face with the leaves on it, too. It's a little hard to see from, but it beats the 'ghost suit' sheet that mom wore last year. It's lighter and easier to maneuver in. She also cleaned the main aviary and the RVS room today. The baby bats seem to be okay, and the ground hogs are doing well, even the one that got hit twice by cars. The poor little raccoon didn't make it though. He was too badly injured.
That's all the news for today, don't forget to come to the castle for the PARTY! Hugs, Falco

  Hi CuBird
Everyone is telling mom the surgery is no big deal, so she's not too concerned about it. She is, however, concerned that her left eye is bleeding. The doctor said there was a hemorrhage on her retina. They are going to see her on April 7. She thought about it and thinks maybe when I nipped her close to her orbital bone, I may have knocked that eye for a bit of a loop and caused the bleeding, because there is simply no other explanation for it.
Yesterday the dino tours were a lot of fun for mom. She had sort of big groups for both of them, about 35 people altogether. The other guy with mom also had 2 big groups. They were both glad, because they both like doing that tour.
Polly went in for her second surgery today, and mom took her prescription to be filled already. This way, she can go pick up Polly after her meeting tomorrow, and not have to stop anywhere in between. We hope this one goes as well as the first one.
When mom got to the center, she had to take care of the foxes, then do the RVS room, with the bats, groundhogs, and a raccoon. The baby bats are still being held close by their mom, so she still hasn't seen them yet. The ground hogs are doing well, and the poor raccoon who was hit by a car is a bit more active today.
Mom still has to take Daisy for a walk today, so she's doing that when we are done talking to our friends. Hope you are having a good day. It's cool but sunny here today, so maybe spring has sprung. We hope that's true, anyway. Have a great day, hugs, Falco

Mom had a busy day yesterday, and found out the surgery dates for her eyes. They will do the right eye on April 24th and the left one on May 8th. She also found out she has some hemorrhaging in the left eye right now; we're hoping that goes away. The real fun was driving to the funeral home with dilated pupils! Mom was probably a road hazard, but she made it there and back in one piece. The lady that died was n her mid nineties. Her husband is 98 and had a math problem for mom yesterday! She's still working on it, heehee.
Today wasn't much better for lazing around. Mom did 2 tours this morning at the museum, one in Dinosaurs and Hillman hall of minerals, and the second one in Egypt. Both groups were 7th grades, but they were interested and engaged, so mom was fine with that. Later she went to get her nails done, then she had to drop off a form at her doctor's office. They want her to have a physical before the surgery, but that's silly because she just saw her doc 2 weeks ago! So she dropped off the form, hoping the doc will just fill it in and fax it off without her having to go back in there. Now she has a break to blog for us, but she has to prepare dinner for her neighbor. He was in the mood for Pesto, and mom has some frozen, so she told him to come here to eat tonight. They made the pesto in the summer with basil and garlic from their gardens. They will have tortellini with pesto and tilapia! Hope you are having a good day today and getting lots of attention!

  HI CU-BIRD
today i would like to talk about the BIRD MAN OF ALCATRAZ. in 1963, Robert F Stroud, murderer of two men died after spending 54 years in solitary confinement. no man in the history of the world ever spent more time alone. were it not for his deep intelligence and love for birds, Stroud would have converted to a human vegetable, but instead became one of the worlds greatest bird pathologists. in an article in the respected Scientific American, the author states that Stroud learned more about bird diseases than any other amateur investigator. a book THE BIRDMAN OF ALCATREZ and a movie of the same name starring Burt Lncaster, made stroud's genius for curing sick birds world renowned. of course it did not gain freedom for Stroud. one of the men he killed happened to be a prison guard. Strouds book was first published in 1943 and the only major change in the treatment of birds since then has been the introduction of antibiotics such as Terramycin, aureomycin and others in the treatment of bird diseases. antibiotics require a doctors prescription and Strouds treatments do not as they are more of a homeopathic treatment but would require a compounding pharmacist to make them up since some of the ingredients might be hard to obtain today. treating a birds disease is in recognizing what the disease is and what caused it. there is still no other book in the world, in any language which can help laymen more in treating bird diseases than the book Strouds digest on the disease of birds.

Here it's warming up a bit, should be in the 40s by tomorrow. We are enjoying some sunshine, too. What a nice day today!
Polly is at the groomer's today! She got those stitches out, so she's no longer a coneheaded dog. The doctor told mom to phone in a month to set up the next surgery. She walked around the block today again, so she's feeling better.
Mom did the avian nursery today, with a lot of screech owls, a sharp shinned hawk, some doves and pigeons, a cardinal, a blue jay, and a starling! Lots of variety. She also cleaned the small flight aviary and the RVS room again. It was a fun day at the center.
We are playing the Warriors again tonight, so if you're on either team, be there! Let's not forfeit another game.
Here it is, a late Ash Wednesday, so Easter will be really late this year. I hope it doesn't delay spring! Hope you are having a great day and getting lots of hugs. Here's one from me, Falco

Mom does tend to go on and on about the wildlife, doesn't she? Sorry if it was too much information!
They called off the huge Winter Storm Warning late yesterday afternoon. The storm system veered south of us. Instead of a foot, we got about 4-5 inches. Mom is still waiting for Josh to shovel the driveway though. She just doesn't want to do it any more. We are hoping that this was the last major event of a dying winter. Mom called the center and told them she'd be there after the driveway is done.
On another note, Polly walked to the neighbor's house and back again today. She is nearly prancing, she's so happy to be on a walk again. Granted, it's not a long one, but at least she's out with Daisy and feeling like she's part of the pack again.
Mom baked some birdie bread yesterday, then made cookies. She delivered some today to Jeff, and will try to give Josh some when he comes to clear the driveway. Hope he wants some because there are a lot of them. They are white chocolate chip and walnut cookies.
I hope you are staying warm and dry today, and getting a lot of love. Hugs, Falco

Your brother Elvis is so good looking!
Okay, a few notes about possums: they are not dangerous, and they will never have rabies or distemper because they have a body temperature too low to support either virus. They are scavengers, who do us a favor by cleaning up our earth. They are the only North American marsupial, so they should be cherished as unique. I know, I know, they have that yucky bald tail and bald ears, but they can't help the way they look. Also, they don't really have a den, so if it's on your deck, it's probably short term residency. They also don't live very long. A possum only lives for 2 or 3 years. They will hiss at you and show you their 50 teeth if they feel threatened, but they will rarely be aggressive. They're more likely to fall over and play possum (look dead) than attack. I hope this helps your mom to deal with the little visitor. Tell her it won't be there forever! Hope you are having a good day, sweetie. Hugs, Falco

It's great to hear from you! It's been too long, girl. I'm glad the parronts are feeling better and the computer will be better soon, too.
Sorry we weren't online yesterday, but mom had other things on her mind. Here we've had nuisance snow for 2 days. Mom had a meeting yesterday at the museum, then she got Polly's prescription filled before going to pick her up. When she got to the vet's office, the tech had more pills, some liquids, and a lot of instructions. Mom was able to pick Polly up though, so she's recuperating at home. Last evening she was pretty drugged, did not eat or drink, although mom squirted some water in her mouth with a syringe.
Today she brought home a bigger crate from the center because the one she borrowed before is too small for Polly's head with the cone on it. Mom tried putting a sock over the stitches and taking the cone off, but Polly got the sock off and was trying to lick at the stitches, so the cone is back on.
So far, mom has iced the area a couple of times, done some passive range of motion exercises with her, and tried to get her to eat or drink. Today she ate some cat food, which they said wouldn't hurt. She's not drinking much, though, and mom is a bit concerned about that. She did walk outside today twice, just long enough to go to the potty the second time. She seems a bit more with it today.
Today at the center, mom cleaned the squirrel porch, which is still full of possums. They released the first bunch, but there are still more out there, recently moved from the mammal nursery. There are also flying squirrels out there: they are really cute. Then mom did the RVS room, which is pretty empty, but not for long. There are about 9 bats, the heron, and the ground hog still in there.
I hope you are having a good day and staying warm and dry. Hugs, Falco

Yay, we won't lose our blogging abilities! Congrats for signing up for the new website.
I'm so happy to be spending this month on the yacht in the Caribbean. I fear we will lose some of our guests when the pirate adventure begins, but until then, have another fruity drink with an umbrella, spread out your towel on the beach chair, and relax in the sun.
It's snowing today (again), and mom had to pick up Polly's meds at the vet. Her neighbor drove her, since the driveway needs shoveled, and it hasn't stopped snowing yet. The vet is only open til noon today. Mom told them that Polly is not walking well on her other back leg either, but they could only leave a note for her vet today. Mom is keeping her crated nearly all the time, and feels bad about it, but it's the only way she'll stay away from playing with Daisy and aggravating it further. Plus, if she can rest both legs, they might feel better later. Her annual appointment with her vet is on Friday, so he'll see her then, at least. Mom thinks if it doesn't get any better, though, she might just try another surgeon, other than the one she has scheduled, to see if they can help her out any earlier that March 4.

  Hi CuBird
I hope mom and dad are both better soon, especially mom with the surgery coming up. We didn't know she was getting a corneal transplant. We wish her the very best and a speedy recovery, too.
You certainly are a pretty bird, but I suspect your whole flock suffers from the same fate, including Miranda, heehee.
Happy Valentine's Day to all our birdie friends today. I hope all of us get a little extra love today.
It was supposed to stop snowing last night, but when mom walked the dogs this morning, it was snowing hard. It has been an ugly winter this year. We were on the edge of that snowstorm, so we shouldn't complain. Others got hit far worse than we did, including many folks who never see snow. Still, it's just been a long winter.
Mom will get caught up on laundry today, and perhaps, if the weather permits, will go out on a quest for more rock salt and a few other necessities. Otherwise, she's ours all day long, and we love that!

Get to work on mom, we don't want to lose you!
It didn't start snowing in earnest here today until everyone was in school, so mom had to drive to the museum in a storm. She thought the roads might be better on the way home, but no such luck! She stopped to pick up more salt, too, since we're nearly out of it again, but the supermarket was also out of rock salt. Mom ended up parking on the street until either the snow stops and she can dig out the driveway, or until it stops and Josh can dig her driveway out. With no salt, we hope it's not slippery underneath.
Thanks to Cookie and Gus for advertising the new website in their blogs. I'd like to add, if you haven't done so yet, check out Squeaky's note on the calendar page and sign up soon! We would like to see a successful new website where we can keep all our friends.

Aunt Rose did our pics, mom isn't good at that. WHAT??? You're just going to leave us???? No new site? When will mom get her hard drive up and running? There's no rush, if you sign up, we're still looking for at least 100 flocks to join, and I think they are under 50, still. Please don't go. We know mom is frustrated, but I bet she gets her computer back before the site is up and running.
The verdict is in on Polly: she needs surgery to repair a torn ACL. Her regular vet as well as the one who saw her last week confirmed the initial diagnosis. Today mom will call the surgeons they recommended and set up the time. Poor Polly, and she's still trying to do all the things she loves, but mom is restricting her to a little morning walk, and she's carrying her on the steps. Daisy doesn't quite understand, but so far, she's behaving towards Polly, not leaping at her and trying to pull her all over the house.
We are all well otherwise, mom will go teach her English students today, then be with us until dinner time, when she and her sister are going to Red Lobster.
I hope you are having a good day, and getting lots of scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Cu-Bird!
I'm really enjoying the sun here in Arizona!! Linda and I often eat outside on the patio. She usually gives me my own little plate of whatever she is eating that is bird-friendly. I especially love tomato soup, noodles, and corn. Oh and grapes are fun to eat, too!

I hear that your parront(s) are going on the next Parrot Lover's Cruise!! Last year's was Linda's very first and she didn't know what to expect but it turned out to be lots of fun. She sat at dinner each evening
with Falco and Gizmo's mom and Chyna's mom. Getting to know them was one of the best things about the cruise for Linda. Carol, the Cruise Director, has just recently adopted a new little Indian Ringneck that looks like me!

Linda is so busy here in Arizona that she doesn't check the Bird Channel much any more. She has to go up to the Activity Office to use the computer.

Stop by and visit-- I will ask Linda to check the Bird Channel soon.
Wing hugs, Robin

Come visit me, Robin- BOTD 11/09/13.

Don't go calling them? Why not, will they magically service the area with telepathic power?
If you haven't made it to our rented yacht sailing the Caribbean this month, what are you waiting for? It's sunny and warm here, not like it is at home!
On another note, please go to the calendar page, 190654, and read Squeaky's message! We need lots of friends to sign up for the new bird page for when BC shuts us down. Sunny, Squeaky's mom, will be glad to send you the info.
Mom stayed in all day yesterday, but in the afternoon a guy came with a shovel and got the driveway cleared. Of course, it snowed again last night, because we haven't had enough yet. (That requires a sarcasm font, but there isn't one.) Today she was able to go teach the English class, and the salon wasn't busy, so it worked out for both her students.
Polly dog is favoring her left leg, so mom made a vet appointment for this afternoon. Later she is going out to dinner with her sister, so our time outside cages will come this evening. That's okay, though, because we had all day yesterday. I hope you are staying dry and warm, come see us on the yacht! Hugs, Falco

It was nasty here overnight. We had a mixture of snow, ice, and rain, so it's a heavy slush underneath with an icy coating on top. Mom tried to shovel the driveway this morning, but with no success. It's just too heavy for mom to move. It took about 1/2 hour to do the front walkway to the street, which normally takes 5 minutes. Anyway, she called off at the center, and called off the English lessons today. We are hoping either that it melts during the day or that Josh comes by when he is done working to clear it off. But it has shaped up to be a totally bird/mom day all day long, yay for us!

Mom thinks he found a great understanding home, so Casper can be himself and be happy now. You'll never guess why the woman wanted to rehome him: she bought him from a breeder who sold him unweaned. That's illegal here in PA, but she went to Ohio to get him. She never properly weaned him to a variety of foods, so he ended up just eating the brown Higgins pellets and nothing else. He still made baby noises to get fed, sometimes, too. Mom thought that was his way to get some attention, but apparently that noise was on the woman's last nerve, and that's why she got rid of him. By the way, he made that noise here one time. Mom didn't react to it, but when he tweeted, whistled, or tried to speak, she made a big fuss! He didn't repeat baby too begging noises here ever again. He was one smart cookie, for sure. Mom thinks if she could have had him, she'd also have him eating a bunch of fresh foods, too. When I came here, I wouldn't eat any fresh stuff, but I soon loved apples and grapes. Mom was worried about the fruit, but she found out that we conures eat 80%fruit in the wild, so she was ok after that. She never gave up, though, and now I eat broccoli too, and she is hopeful that some day I'll try a carrot, a piece of yam, a pea, or something. I've eaten corn and lettuce on occasion, too.
Okay, enough rambling, see you soon, have a great day! Hugs, Falco

  Hi CuBird
That was ultimately the thing mom hated most when Casper came here. We all live in mansions, and here he was in a cage no taller than his head! He couldn't really spread his wings either. Mom would take him out and play with him, but the poor boy had to go back inside when any of us were out. That was trying, because mom likes us to be out nearly all the time when she's home. Mom offered to go to his house to feed and water him, and play with him for an hour or so each day, because he had a large cage there. The woman wasn't comfortable with that, I guess, because she just kept bringing him here in that tiny cage. Eventually, she offered him to mom, saying she just couldn't keep him any more, but mom had to say no because of space here and of course, my feelings! It was a total shame that person ever bought a bird and ruined him. Hope you are having a good day, and come on with us on the yacht for a few days if you're tired of the cold. Hugs, Falco

Robin's page is 264389, but she and her mom Linda are traveling to Arizona right now, so probably are not online. Her mom posts on FB occasionally as they travel, though. Her name is Linda, and I think she's in the BCommunity there.
Mom birdsat for a U2 a few times, but I didn't like him, and the last time he was here, I kept going to his cage and yelling STUPID at him. Mom told his mom she couldn't birdsit any more for him, because she was worried he'd go for my toes, and also because his parronts would leave him here in a travel cage for the whole time they were gone, which mom thought was a cruel thing to do. He was a pretty nice bird, mom loved him, but I definitely did not. He had the nerve to be louder than I! Hugs, Falco

It's very exciting, mom agrees. Xcaret was fun to visit, and that behind the scenes tour with the birds was great! It's good that dad is enthusiastic about it too, they will have a great time. Mom loved both cruises, even though the one on Carnival was pretty loud. She thinks your folks will have a wonderful time. Is Indiana Sam's mom going this year? She has been wanting to go, so we were wondering. Terri is Rudy, Cappy, Dory, and Dixie's mom, right? It should be a lot of fun. Linda is going again, too, that's Robin's mom. Tell Carol you want to sit with other BC folks at dinner. Meanwhile, we'll be there to party with you. Hugs, Falco

Tell the folks not to get too excited. Mom thought they were going to release parrots, too. Here's what they did: they took them backstage, so to speak, showed them how they worked with the birds, showed them the birds that would be eventually released into the wild, then had each person hold either a military or scarlet macaw. These birds they took to a small knoll, where they 'released' them to fly over the park. Mom asked, and they told her the birds return each day, sometimes after 10 minutes, and sometimes after a few hours. They keep their mates, who call them back! So releasing the birds just means releasing them for some free flight time. They look great flying over the park, though! Hugs, FAlco

  Hi CuBird
Are they going to Xcaret? It's a neat place, mom got to work with a military macaw and release a scarlet to free fly over the park. Your folks will get to do the same, I bet.
We all apologize for missing what looked to be a wonderful milonga last night. Mom had every intention of having us there for the whole thing, but she didn't get home until about 9:30, so we just basically made an appearance. By the time we got back it looked like everybirdie had gone home.
Here's what happened: Mom knew it would be a late dinner because of the weather. Her son in law is a mail carrier, and he had a rough day because of the snow yesterday. He phoned about 6:15 saying they would be on their way to pick mom up shortly. By the time they got here, there was a white out! Snow everywhere, roads slick, nothing had been treated since late afternoon when the last snow stopped. They were right out in the beginning of a new and severe storm. They got to the restaurant a long time later, sliding on some of the roads and mom was hanging on in the back seat, hoping for the best. Anyway, by the time they finished dinner, the major roads had been plowed and salted, and they followed a plow/salt truck up the biggest hill to get back. It was definitely an adventure that mom does not want to repeat!
When mom got back from walking the dogs this morning, she refilled the peanut feeder for the squirrels and the bird feeders for the wild little ones.
Hopefully we can have a milonga in a warm place again next month, and we will be able to attend. We are leaving our avatars up because they remind us all that winter can't possibly last forever.
Hope you are staying warm and dry today and getting lots of love and attention. Hugs, Falco

Carol is really nice to deal with, too. She has birds of her own as well. She just got a new baby, an IRP. Mom loved the seminars on the ship, and some of the excursions, but she booked her own for some of the ports, too. Do your parronts like cruises? Mom liked the 2 she took, but they were both with Carol. The first one was on Carnival, and it was pretty loud on the ship. The second one was much better! More adult oriented, she thinks, on the Celebrity cruise line. What line are they going with? Is there a drink package, a discount on purchases, or anything as an incentive? Just curious. Mom isn't going this time, it looks like too much time on the water, with only 3 stops. Where are they leaving from? If there are bird people there, your folks should hook up with them before they leave. We met Maria Kendall last year in San Juan, she was terrific! Hugs, Falco

Isn't John Lege fantastic? Wow, your parronts are going on the cruise? That's good news, we think they'll love it. Mom has gone for the past 2 years and has enjoyed it each time.
Mom is thinking of our Caribbean avatars and hoping she can come up with something. We just got our January ones done about a week ago!
Mom drove to the pool yesterday, but something special was going on for MLK's birthday. The center will be closed on Monday, so they held the celebration yesterday. That meant there were no parking spaces within a 5 block area! Beyond that, there is no parking allowed, so mom did not get in any laps yesterday. Today is laundry day, and maybe some errands. She needs to buy peanuts for the squirrels, and more wild bird food. We still have some suet, but those seed eating birds are really cleaning up this year!

We had rain all day yesterday. Today the temps are supposed to fall a bit, and it will just be cloudy all day long.
Mom went back to the bird warehouse after the meeting yesterday to buy a few more food items and some scrubbies. She ran into John Lege, known as that guy with the birds. If you don't know him, you should Google him to learn about what he does. He's remarkable! She also saw George, the guy who sold her Willie and Peppino, who was very happy to see pics of the boys. We had a nice day with mom after she got home, she spent the rest of the day being lazy, catching up on some TV from the DVR, and reading. It was just a relaxing day. Tonight we will be in lockdown, though, because mom is meeting some friends at a middle Eastern restaurant, and finally giving them their Christmas presents.

They've been selectively breeding apples for many many years, that's why we have such a variety. A new kind is honeycrisp, developed at Penn State, we think... Anyway, we all eat genetically modified food like corn, beans, etc. The danger is in cloning, because if everyone is growing the same strains of food, when it gets diseased or something attacks it, all of it will be affected the same way. They are cloning most of the trees people buy now, which is not a good idea. Sorry for the rant, so were there any eggs in the robe, heehee???

Sorry we could not blog before but with the new schedule it is even harder for the parront to find time to do our blogs. We don't have a specific blogging day now. She will blog whenever she has a chance.

We are sorry to hear that BC is closing but we don't know yet if we would continue blogging on facebook. The parront does not have facebook, she does not like it.

So far her back is not bugging her at all. She has a follow up appointment on Friday 17.

Some days the weather has been really cold here. Today is cloudy but it is Ok.

The parront is fasting because her church is doing a 21 days fasting. It will end on the 26th.

This is all for now. See you next time we have a chance.

Let us know when you figure out the BT covers...we have picasa too, so we might be able to do something, if mom isn't too stupid or impatient.
It's warmer today, and supposed to hit 50 here tomorrow. What a crazy week, from -9 to 50! Mom has some errands today, but once she gets back, she's all ours! I suspect she's going to wipe down all the cages today, though, since she only changed papers last night. Oh well, I suppose a good wiping will be okay. I am still enjoying broccoli every day now with my apples and grapes, and mom is thinking of making a little pasta soon, to see if we will all still eat it, me included. I might just surprise her and do it, you know. I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of attention and scritchies. Hugs, Falco

I think the magazine cover revises the size to fit the cover or something. Willie and Peppino both look so tall and thin, and so does Hulk.
We're having a heat wave today, it's 20 degrees outside! Mom did some grocery shopping after she left the center today, then went to gas up the car and get some cash. It was good for her to run those errands today after being housebound yesterday. There are 4 screech owls, a cedar waxwing (who is over wintering), a dove, and a downy woodpecker in the avian nursery today, where mom was assigned to clean. She also did the recovery room again, with ducks, possums, turtles, and a pigeon looking for a home. The poor thing can't be released, and so far, nobody wants to take him. Mom says we have no room here, but she hopes he finds a home soon.
We hope you are in the warming weather today, too, and that the polar vortex has gone back in the arctic! Hugs, Falco

It's not just our moms and Tooth, it's also Bree from the wildlife center and mom's son in law. Lots of important people and birds share the day! Mom was going to get Bree a bottle of wine, but decided that, given the cold, she'd be able to use a pair of gloves with the fingers cut out for working at the center. For son in law, an Amazon gift card was perfect.
It was below zero when mom woke up today, and the dogs haven't been walked yet. She's hoping that it will warm up a little so she can take them out. Poor Daisy, with her short hair, she's about frozen just going out on the deck to do what she needs to do.
Mom took down the Christmas stuff, so it's put away for another year. It took a lot less time to put it away than it did to get it out, so she suspects she'll be finding traces of Christmas for the next week or so.
Last night, I was determined to have a bath, but it was only to get mom wet. When I jump in my bath bowl, I usually splash a little, but last night, I splashed nearly all the water out of it. Mom ended up having to change her shirt!
With mom stuck in the house all day, it means we get a lot more free time, what could be better? Hope you are inside, cozy and staying warm. Hugs, Falco

I like it, you got your cover girl shot done! It looks like a bunch of you in the flock got new cover shots! What a crew of models!
I shocked mom last night. During dinner I actually ate some pasta!
Lena's art show last night was delightful. She has been working on oil paintings that she displayed in the show for the past year or so, and she's quite good. After the art gallery, mom and the family went to Phipps to see the winter flower show. It was spectacular! Lots of candles and glass sculptures made the conservatory especially beautiful by night. The outdoor garden was all lit up and quite spectacular too, and it wasn't too cold to go out and take a look around.
Our high was reached at midnight last night, and temps are steadily dropping. When mom walked the dogs this morning, it was about 25. Now it's down low 20s or high teens. By tonight it's supposed to hit 8 below zero. It hasn't been this cold here for a long time.
When mom went to the center this morning, she was hoping they had her assigned to indoor rooms, and they did. She did the mammal nursery, with possums, squirrels, and a cute flying squirrel, as well as an African turtle, which is really neat looking. It has large eyes! Then she did the recovery room: 4 more turtles, but they were eastern box turtles; 3 mallards; 1 pigeon; and 2 more possums. It was a good morning to be indoors working.
I hope you are staying warm, and that you have a good day with lots of attention. Hugs, Falco
