Hi! My name is Cu-Bird -Justice for Ozzi

I am a Timneh African Grey from Newton, NJ.

Pippin, Perfect Little Pippin, Peeps, Cute Bird, Crouton, Junior, Mini Me and Brat Bird, African Princess . 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!

12 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 was rescues as a boy and on 12/31/13 I laid an egg!.

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

  Morning Ms Cu-Bird, from Ms LaLo
It was 53 degrees when dad went out to get our paper and pray with Christy this AM, but our (never been wrong before) guessers say we will get back to August weather next week with temps in the mid-nineties for several days, that's okay, JUST BRING IT, they can't scare us, we have been around to long and seen it all! We shipped out 5 Angel Wings Toy boxes yesterday, and dad has 6 more almost ready to ship, he is getting a little burned out, but he will continue, so as to honor Christy's memory! Have a great ToosDay dear BC friends, and give our love to all in your fabulous home, see ya tomorrow...

Forever love from Ms LaLo Lee & the Angel Wings Toy Shoppe

  Hi CuBird
Mom is hoping to talk to Robin tonight or tomorrow, so we'll be in touch with you soon. Mom will be there Thursday through Sunday nights, because she doesn't want to drive home on Sunday afternoon in the western sun. We don't like that she'll be gone that long, but we all like Bree, so it's okay that she will be with us.
We are in a streak of good weather here. It's gonna be another bright sunshiny day, so mom will be heading out at noon for a few hours at the pool. Everything will need watered soon if it doesn't rain, though. This is going to present a problem, since the hookup for the hose is in the garage with the new cabinets. Mom doesn't want to have any water in the garage until the cabinets are out of there. She can't do laundry until they are moved, either, since the dryer vents into the garage.
The other day mom won a little basket at the pool fundraiser. She thought at first glance that it was tea, but when she opened it yesterday, there was pasta, sauce, some candies, a gift card, and one box of tea. The good thing is that it's English Breakfast tea, which mom likes. She is starting to pick tomatoes from the planters, too! We got some Siberian ones and a couple of indigo blues yesterday. Mom put pesto on them for a little salad, and they were delicious.
I hope you are having a great day today and getting lots of love. Hugs, Falco

How are you, girl? Thanks for the hatchday wishes. Mom will either call your mom or email her this week after she talks to Robin about Parrot Palooza. Hope they can figure it out, mom wants to make sure about the reservations.
Last night was a fantastic time for all of us, I think. Thanks to Kiddo, Taz, Kaji and Lizzie, and especially Panther for another great milonga! We all had a terrific time.
Mom went to Madonna del Castello last night for their festa, and got a hot sausage sandwich, melanzane rolatini, and pizza fritta to bring home. That's eggplant stuffed with ricotta and fried pizza dough for those not acquainted with such delicacies. Mom doesn't make eggplant all that often any more, and never fries dough! It was sure tasty.
Today is a bright sunny pool day, and later, a birdie kind of evening. I hope you are having a wonderful summer day and that your feet aren't too tired from all that dancing. Hugs, Falco

  Is this my pretty Cu-Bird fiend, from Ms LaLo
We had a ton of bad weather and tornadoes in our area last night, and aunt Denise's town of Monmouth really got nailed! I just heard from her on iChat, they could see several twisters touching down all around them, but they made it through them unscathed, thank goodness! We always worry about all our friends in harm's way, and are always relieved to hear all is well! We have more storms and a weekend heat advisory to contend with, so I think dad is going to run to the store for our supplies soon, so we can relax over the weekend! Have a great Friday and give my love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

Eternal love from Ms LaLo Lee & our Dallas family---BE SAFE & BE COOL

PS~We love the Stark flock & family so much, you and aunt Tanya have given us so many wonderful memories...

  Hi CuBird
A lot of people still believe that old wives' tale about not touching baby birds. The thing that really gets to mom though is when they bring birds to the center and tell the intake person they've fed it bread dipped in milk! When mom does tours or is out speaking about the center, she always mentions that birds don't have nipples (no milk) and they don't often shop in bakeries. It usually gets a laugh, but mom thinks the people get the point.
Mom hasn't really looked for a roomie yet, but she will be doing that shortly. Does your mom want to stay? Maybe they can be roomies. Tell your mom to call mine, it's better because your mom still works, so she can call at her convenience. We think Aunt Robin will come, too, if that's more incentive.
Yesterday when mom got back from the pool after a couple of hours, it started raining. It rained off and on all night long. It's sort of overcast right now too, and we think it's going to rain again today. This is getting old! We've had more rain in June than normal. It's the last day of June, though, so maybe July will bring better weather.
Since mom got her nails done on Sunday, if it rains today, she'll start packing up the kitchen. I know it's still a couple of weeks away, but she figures a little at a time will be better than trying to do it all at once.
I hope you are having a good day, summery weather and lots of cuddles and love. Hugs, Falco

Mom will probably stay at the Sheraton in Bucks county again, it's really close to Sherman and Peabody's moms and about 20 minutes from the event. Last year, Robin and Eva as well as Mary and Kristen stayed there too, so it was a party hotel for them.
Mom did the RVS room today, then stopped at the Giant Eagle on the way home. We all needed fresh veggies.
In the RVS room, the person who was coming to replace her walked in right at the end of mom's shift. Mom was on a step stool which had 2 steps on it. Rebecca asked mom a question, and mom backed up with 2 raccoons in her hands to answer her. She forgot about the second step! She didn't fall, but kind of fell into some cages. She dropped one of the raccoons, and Rebecca picked it up; thankfully it wasn't hurt. Mom thinks she sprained a finger which is no big deal. Guess what else was in the RVS room today? Skunks, baby skunks all over the place, and baby bats! They are adorable. The skunks look like beanie babies, and the little bats look like gremlins. It was really hot in there, so mom kept cleaning, then going into the kitchen to make up food dishes. She normally cleans everyone then feeds all of them, but she was looking for any excuse to leave the RVS room and get some air today.
The good news is that the sun was out for a couple of hours, so mom got to the pool! She only swam a couple of laps, but it felt so good to be in the sun. It's raining again now, but it's not storming, which is good.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Your folks are turning into travelers for sure. So when do they get to Pittsburgh? We'd love to meet them and show them around.
Mom found out yesterday that Bree will be able to stay here so she can go to Parrot Palooza! Now to find a roommate, and she'll be set.
We had our grooming yesterday, and as usual, I bit mom on the arm, Willie was drama king, and little Peppino took a page from Willie's book and yelled, too!
Thanks to all the girls who made girls night out such a fun party! We had a great time, and it was good to see everyone.
Not much going on today, it's sunny though and that means pool time for mom.
Mom ordered her tile for the kitchen from La Fuente in CA, and now there are great looking tiles on the side of BC in the ads! It was sure tough picking out tiles, there are so many pretty ones.
Hope you are having a fun day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi CuBird
Of course Cookie can come, I forgot she was in your flock, too. Sorry! That party was a lot of fun, thanks for having us for your 'cultural' event, haha.
Mom has a friend who is a defense attorney, and she taught in a ghetto for 31 years, so she's more accustomed to hearing, 'do you know ....., I'm defending him.' When she hears the success stories, it makes her feel she did make a difference. She is actually in touch with a few former students on Facebook, and knows they are successes, too.
The tree guy came this morning and looked. It's going to be a big job, it's a big elm! He says they can get started in a couple of weeks. He thinks the oak tree is going to cause problems soon, too. Mom actually thought it was the oak tree until she took a closer look and saw the elm leaning over behind it. Anyway, hopefully it will be done soon.
The weather guessers are saying thundershowers and rain for the next 5 days, which figures, since the arts festival is in town! It happens every year, no matter when they hold it. It usually means 2 weeks of rain, but this year, they got some nice weather last week.
Mom found some local stores where she can look at tiles. Now I guess she has to measure the wall and see how many she'll need. Right now the backsplash is only on the sink wall, but mom's sister thinks she should extend it to the wall with the stove, too. Mom will measure for both and see what she can find.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

It's great to see you again, I've missed you, girlfriend! Sure, we'll be there for African culture night, I'm looking forward to it. There's a girls night out on Tuesday, hope you and Miranda and Samantha can make it. It's at the Thirsty Parrot, it's a pajama party, and the theme will be Caribbean. My mom loved Epcot! Hope your folks do too.
A parent of 2 of mom's former students contacted her on Facebook the other day. It was nice to hear that both girls grew up to be successful. One is a librarian and one is a teacher. She told mom both girls remembered her fondly. What's funny is that as soon as she read the names, she remembered the kids! That probably wouldn't happen with all of them, but she was proud of herself for remembering after all these years.
Thanks to Uncle Chuck, we got a box of bird toys delivered last evening! Mom opened it up and was surprised at all the goodies in there. Thanks, Uncle Chuck! We'll get some pics posted as soon as we can.
Mom cleaned the recovery room this morning, and had charge of the 45 minute timer in the avian nursery. She was feeding about 35 birds every 45 minutes, and still managed to clean the 4 turtles, pigeon, owl, mallard, and gosling cages in between. In the nursery, the birds she was feeding were all out of the incubators, but there were about 20 in one large rolling aviary cage, robins, thrushes, sparrows, and starlings. In another cage were about 10 robins, and in the third rolling aviary there were 5 bluejays. They are so funny, fluttering wings and demanding food as fledglings.
The pool was delightful this afternoon. Mom needed to take a plunge as the center was extremely hot and sticky. She finished the new Stephen King book and passed it off to her sister, and her sister finished the Dean Koontz and passed it to mom. That worked out well.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of good weather, cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Good morning my sweet Cubird
The day is getting closer. Marley is on her way to the stables now, and is staying overnight, so as to have two good final workouts with ER before Saturday evening. She is not going to do much more than an easy run on Saturday morning, so as to not tire him out. A restful day is best for the day of the actual race, is what Marley was told. She is going to see what every other birdy is doing come the big day. I, on the other hand, am looking forward to spending time with you! just the other day, it seemed like Saturday would never come, but now it is only a couple of days away. It will definitely be an exciting time, more so than some of the other Milongas. I am also looking forward to it. I will see you at your home just before 8 o'clock my love... Wing hugs, and beaky kisses... TiPaul

  Good afternoon my sweet Cubird
you must be a mind reader... or something. I was just thinking I MUST write you and invite you to the milonga because my fister Marley is going to be riding a horse, and she is doing well with practicing, or so she says - and I would LOVE to be there with you. I miss you! I am going to have to ask somebody to get a hat on my sweet head. Mom lot the program she had when she moved - her hard drive went with the move, and she has not done much since the move. in any case I will be picking you up! it should be a fun evening. We all laughed when it was announced that Marley is riding Exchange Rate, us living in Canada and all and the rate of US to Canadian money being so high. We shall squawk before then.

  Hi my sweet CuBird!
Mom just received an email, that told her the Irish Milonga is tomorrow evening. She has been so busy this month, and she has a horrible cold that she picked up form going dancing with someone last week who had it, that she decided not to do much this weekend, including no dancing, but she told me if I would like to go to the Milonga for a couple of hours, she will do her best to type for me. So... I am here to ask you if you are game for another evening of fun, and whatever they have on the agenda? If yes, I will be at your place around 8PM to pick you up...

It sounds like Elvis has had it with the nandays and Charlie! Hope they aren't still jumping up and down on his last nerve. Mom learned at the preservation training that they used scotch tape on the Dead Sea Scrolls. Talk about damaging acid! Those xrays pasted into a book sound as bad, though. Mom is thinking of staying at the Bucks county Sheraton, that's where she and Jane stayed last year, along with Robin, Eva, Kristen and Mary H.
Well, spring starts tomorrow, and we're supposed to get 4 or 5 inches of snow! Not Fair, I say.
Mom's class on baby mammals went well last night, it lasted for about 2 1/2 hours, which is typical. There were a lot of volunteers there. Mom loved when Jill was talking about baby bunnies, she said she could see people shaking their heads and saying they'd never feed them. The reason is that baby bunnies get tube fed, and it's pretty tricky. Mom knows how to do it, but only does it in a pinch.
Today there were 2 middle school tours on evolution at the museum. During the first one a fire alarm went off, so everyone had to vacate the building. It took over a half hour of standing in the cold before they were allowed back inside. As a result, the tour was extended for that time, and they picked up the second tour a half hour late. That was fine, because they hadn't finished their lunch yet when the alarm went off. What was refreshing to mom is that the kids had a real grasp of evolution and deep time! For middle school kids, they were pretty interested and engaged. She got to show off her 380 million year old ammonite, too, which is always fun. (By the way, it's from New York.)
I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

While mom is disappointed that we won't get a package of nandays, I must say I enjoy being the queen of scream around here.
Mom and Aunt Jane are beginning their plans for Parrot Palooza, Oct. 9 to 11 this year. Just a heads up for your mom.
Last night we had dinner and movie night. I was unusually quiet for the event, but Peppino more than made up for it. That boy is loud, sounded like 3 or 4 birds for a good half of the movie. Everyone loved the pizza and wings dinner, and Gene brought a fruit plate for dessert, which was perfect. The Theory of Everything is a wonderful movie, if you haven't seen it yet, it's worth your time.
Today mom got trained for the Preservation Fair which will be at the museum on March 28. The docents will be conducting experiments to show people how to mark their goods, shop for acid free stuff, etc. Mom tried an eraser on her ID badge today, and it did clean it somewhat. She's had that badge for 11 or 12 years, and it was looking decidedly dingy. The eraser took off some of the grime and left the badge in good shape.
I hope you are seeing more and more signs of spring around you. Today it is sunny, blue skies, and around 50 after a frosty morning. I hope you are also getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Mom got excited about going back to Parrot Palooza after she talked to your mom. She is beginning to make plans!
Mom was at the eye doc this morning for her 6 month follow up after cataract surgery. The doc told her that her vision is 20/20 with her glasses! YAY! She also gave mom a glimmer of hope when she said the retinal vitreous docs might release her from their care in the future, if the macular bleeding is under control. That's great news, too.
The guys will be here tomorrow to fix the porch roof that couldn't be done all winter. Mom will ask them when they are coming back to do the kitchen as well. Hope it won't be too long.
We are having company tonight for dinner and a movie. Gene, mom's friend from Germany, and Aunt Ginny will be here for Pizza, wings, salad, and The Theory of Everything. Mom can't wait to see the movie.
It's springlike today with temps, into the high 40s/low 50s range! No sun, but the snow is melting at last. I hope you are getting lots of cuddles and scritches, and maybe even a little sunshine. Hugs, Falco

Thanks, mom is looking forward to hearing from yours! Tell Elvis not to box the nandays, they will scream their heads off! Mom would love to have them visit, but I'm not sure I would, I love being the queen of scream here!
Well, mom didn't say anything about the bingo except that she was tired. Their table made over $1200! Mom doesn't know what they got from the gate yet, but that was a good day of work. Yesterday's tours at the museum was fun, there was the cutest little 4 year old on her first tour who had a ton of questions. That always makes the tour interesting.
Today mom called off at the wildlife center to go to the emergency room. Her ankle woke her up several times during the night, so she thought it was a good idea to get it checked out. It turns out that it is osteoarthritis, which mom suspected anyway. They wrapped it up with an Ace bandage, told her to take Tylenol for the pain, and sent her home with a referral to an orthopedic group. So, after she gets done with our blogs, she will put up her feet, call the orthopedic guy, and put ice on it.
Hope you are having a good day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. It feels like spring here! Temps in the 40s and sunny today! Hugs, Falco

  Hi my Sweet CuBird
BC decided to let Mom log in on her laptop this morning, so here I am! Mom got up so early, when it was still dark. She quietly came into the bird room and left us each a handful of nutriberries and told us she will be back in a while. She went for her blood tests. She wanted to get there early and get back before the rush, and she did it. A whole lot of people came after her, and there were not many in line when she got there, but there was this one lady from who they had trouble getting her blood, and she went from one nurse to the other, and mom was lucky to get in when she did. The first thing she did when she got home was come in to us, bring us some yummy grapes and then she said she needed a coffee, but she told me we will get some voting and blogs done now. Yippee! Have a greyt day, and see you tomorrow. Wing hugs and beaky kisses from TiPaul.

  Hi My Sweet Cubird...
mom got her operation on her wrist and you can only guess where our computer time went. Mom has not even answered her own mail. I kinda gave her a big mess to clean today and she was so upset, she walked out of the birdroom and said I could have time on the computer afterwards. That is now but heck is she slow. one finger or two. I could peck faster than she can type now. okay... I heard there is a milonga tomorrow and it has to do with Valentines Day and I would love to have you come with me. mom will be a rotten typist but heck, it will still be fun. What do you say my dear? I am soooo glad you enjoyed my gift. I told Mom we had to arrange that early, knowing she would be out of sorts, getting things all ready for the operation. The others in my flock won,t be coming - mom can't type for all of us. Jasper will dive me to pick you up and will pick us up afterwards. She is such a sweetie... but Mom said she can have a new toy like the one she finished that she so loves. I am anxiously awaiting your reply... and hoping you say yes. If so, I will be at your place just after 8 o'clock EST so we won't be the first ones there. LOL Wing hugs and beaky kisses.

  Hi CuBird
Haha, that's funny! Too bad we can't rent Cookie out for a few days to put Daisy in her place, although I've been known to fly at her and startle her some times.
Yesterday mom had 2 tours at the museum, and it was a miserable day with snow and white out conditions. The first tour was for members, and it was on insects. Mom started out with the paleozoic insects, and went to dinosaur hall to show mesozoic ones, then they went to the second and third floors to see lots of bugs, flies, and beetles. They ended up at Egypt, looking at scarab beetles after passing around some mounted dung beetles. It worked out okay, although mom doesn't feel she's the best one to do an insect tour. The dinosaur tour was great, some of the people on the first one hung around for the second one, and some other people joined. So the time at the museum was fun.
Then came the ride home. Was it fun? NO, NO, NO, it was not! Before mom left, she talked to Josh, the guy that usually does the driveway, and told him to come when the snow stopped. (It never did, so she was a bit worried on the drive home.) She left an envelope of cash in the door for him. He had the drive shoveled and salted and finished about 20 minutes before she got home. The ride home was horrendous, the roads were slippery, the traffic was slow (of course), and the hills were nearly unmanageable. There are a lot of hills here, too. Mom decided to come home over a road called Coal Hollow, since it's more widely traveled than her usual route. She figured it would be cleaner than the side streets she usually takes. Well, she slid all over the place coming down the hill. Want to hear the kicker? The plow/salt truck was 2 vehicles behind her, and she couldn't find a place to pull over and let him go in front. As you can tell, she did get home, but it took twice as long as usual. She was relieved to see the driveway done and salted, for sure.
Mom got a bit of bad news when she got back, too. Aunt Gin's mom passed away. Mom has said repeatedly she would not cry when that happened, because Aunt Marge was 97, and ready to go, but she did. Aunt Marge was a wonderful woman who always spoke her mind and lived a loving, full, and beautiful life.
Today when mom took the dogs for their (very short) walk, it was -3 out there with a wind chill of -20. I believe we'll have mom the rest of the day. I hope you are having a great day, staying warm, and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi CuBird
Sounds like we need Cookie here to teach us how to do that. Our terrier, Daisy, stares at us when she can, and sometimes tries to jump at our cages. Mom is always vigilant, but it drives her nuts. Polly, on the other hand, is a Chinese crested/poodle mix. She's pretty laid back.
Well, we're back in the deep freeze today. Temps have plummeted back from the 50s yesterday to the high 20s right now. I think more snow is in the forecast too. Hope it's not too much.
Mom did the raptor mews today, so it gave her a chance to connect again with Martha, the great horned owl, and Maxina and Chuck, the red tailed hawks. There was also a patient in one of them, a turkey vulture who is still pretty freaked out when humans are near. After she did that area, she did the center room, called the Runs. There were 2 red tailed hawk patients there, as well as Cecilia, our new barred owl for education, the 3 resident vultures, a peking duck, and that snapping turtle who was in the small flight aviary on Friday. He got moved because there is a gull in there now. It was a pretty busy day at the center for mom with all those animals, but she still managed to do a few dishes.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of warm cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi CuBird
That wasn't Phil, that was some groundhog in Wisconsin, near where Hulk lives. His name is Jimmy, and he's not nearly as famous as Phil. Maybe that's why he bit the guy, to put his name in the headlines, hahaha.
Today it's supposed to go into the 40s, but we'll wait and see about that. After their walk this morning, mom took the dogs to the spa. They are both due for a bath (they probably have salt all over them), and Polly definitely needs a haircut. Her bangs are covering her eyes and no matter how often mom brushes, the hair keeps falling into them. The guy at the grooming salon said, 'she's not matted, it should be an easy trim.' Mom brushes her all the time, of course she's not matted!
Later today, mom will go with her sister to the South Side for dinner, or maybe a late lunch, if the dogs get done early enough. She doesn't really want to try to park there on a Saturday evening. She got a Groupon that is ready to expire, so she has to use it soon. Plus, if she goes early, we get out of our cages earlier, too, and get more mom evening time.
I hope you are staying warm, getting lots of cuddles and scritches, and having a happy Saturday. Hugs, Falco

  Hi CuBird
Thanks for stopping over. Where is that friend of mine "Blue" hiding ...????
I'm home! I sure missed everybirdie. Thanks for all the blogs and thinking of me. I will send this long c/p to let all of you know my adventures.
It started very early on Jan 16. We had our first stop in MI a five hour drive to visit Aunt Gail. Then we left very early on the 17th. It was dark when we started the drive. I got to see lots of horses in Kentucky and mountains in Tennesee. Then it was dark again and I saw a big city called Atlanta, all lit up. We spent the night in Georgia. The next day, we finally arrived in Florida.
I saw lots of palm trees and different birds. The house we rented was really nice. It had a lanai with a pool. I spent a lot of time in the sun. My feathers look good! A flock of birds landed next to the screened in pool. One came over to talk with me. He was a snowy egret, I called him "E". Every day he would visit and we would talk. My parronts were going to the beach, site-seeing and mom had shopping to do. My dad even had gator for dinner one night ... YUCKY!!! He did come across one on the golf course too!
I had an adventure too. We went over a big bridge called the Skybridge. The pelicans would fly next to the car window. I yelled hello but they would just glance at me. We ended up at Felix's house. His mom is so very nice and we had a wonderful time. Felix even had a dish of his favorite nuts for me to enjoy. Felix is very smart and Kirby talks all the time. Butters is a sweet lady and Snickers is a wild and crazy guy. Loved them all! They liked me too. As I was leaving, Felix called out goodbye several times.
We had sunny days with temps from 72 to 80. On Saturday the 31st, we started home. First there was a bad accident and so we sat in FL for 1 1/2 hours. We only made it up to Tennesee and spent the night there in the mountains. The drive was good, saw more horses in KY and then when we hit Ohio, rain started. Then it turned to snow and the roads got bad. We were stranded south of Toledo and spent another night. The next day, we left on a very slow and scary drive and finally made it to Aunt Gail's. That was last night. Today we arrived home around dinner time. It was good to see my own bed again but NOT the snow!
My profile pic is me at the pool. Mom will get the pics posted this week.
Have a greyt night.
Hugs
Chyna

Come visit me, Derby Farms, Chyna & Bailey ♥ RIP.

  Hi CuBird
That silly groundhog lives in the library in Punxy, what does he know about weather? A couple of years ago, the director of the Wildlife Center where mom volunteers, cracked mom up. She had been at the ceremony in Punxsutawney, and stated unequivocally that Phil was a girl, at least that year... Typically males leave their burrows in early Feb. to visit the ladies in their range, then go back to sleep for awhile.
Okay, mom recorded the Fish Bowl on Sunday. If anyone is interested, don't bother! It was just a bunch of goldfish bowls, some containing clownfish, set around a farmyard, so cows, pigs, sheep, bunnies, and horses could see them. It was boring, and mom deleted it after fast forwarding to see if anything changed.
Well, Punxsutawney Phil predicted 6 more weeks of winter. At least he didn't bite anyone's ear. (We caught that on the news last night, but don't remember where it happened.) Not much new to report, it's still cold and mom isn't going out much. Chyna should be home today, as her mom and dad stayed at a friend's home last night.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

I missed you my Sweet! TiPaul here with a vote and a smile! Mom has some sort of flu bug. She got up in the night coughing a couple of days ago and the symptoms have been coming on, one at a time. She was doing greyt until today, when all her energy left her at once, and she crawled up on the couch for a nap. She had a fever since yesterday, but today it was higher, and she is doing what her body is telling her. Yesterday it told her to give us each a bunch of yummy fruits and nuts so she could rest, and today it was even better - a movie and popcorn while she slept, and steamed veggies after that. Delicious. Of course, she slept so long, she is wide awake for awhile now, so I asked if we can blog to my friends, and she said yes! She is having a clementine and we can share, so long as I don't drip on the computer. We are near the end of the season for the sweet ones, so are enjoying them while they last. Hoping you had a wonderful day! Wing hugs and beaky kisses only for you... TiPaul

I hope mom is better today and that nasty plague thing goes away. Good help is hard to find, we agree.
Wow, you were rooting for the Seahawks? We are surprised, given that you are from the east coast. We were rooting for them, too, hahaha. It's too bad they didn't win.
Mom heard from Chyna's mom last evening. They were stuck outside Toledo, and had to get a room and stay over. The roads were all closed due to the weather. So, you might hear from Chyna tonight, as long as they get home today.
We watched the Super Bowl, and mom taped the Puppy Bowl and something on NatGeoWild called the Fish Bowl...We'll let you know about that one. Mom posted a pic of Martha, the Great Horned Owl at the center as a SuperbOwl on her Facebook page last night, haha. We thought both teams played their hearts out. It's too bad only one team could win, it was a really good game.
We got rain nearly all day yesterday, no new snow. It didn't snow overnight, either, and today it's getting colder and colder. Our driveway was icy this morning, so mom salted before she went to the center. It got so cold, it's still icy out there.
This morning at the center, mom did the main aviary, then did the RVS room. There is a raccoon in there that is really aggressive, so mom just replaced his food and water, and told the staff they could clean his cage. She had 2 groundhogs and 4 bats in there to do, so it kept her busy.
We don't know what the groundhog said today, but we guess he said something like there will be six more weeks of winter, or spring will be here in 42 days.
Either way, we can't wait for spring.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Sophie shakes her head. OH NO!!! the plucking of feathers isn't new around here since Oatie is pretty naked and has been most of her time. But to pull flight feathers! I don't dare do THAT or else how will I ever chase Oatie and Ipo away from mom? No that's just too much to imagine. Well, it does make dad wait hand and foot on Cookie more. hehehe COME GET ME OR I USE MY OUTSIDE VOICE!! my favorite saying. hahaha True I don't use human speach but mom knows. Oh yes she does. She listens to how loud and long I ring my bells. Gets the point across or I use my outside voice. Those without understanding, think my inside voice is my outside voice. Mom puts that to rest in no time. hahaha
We couldn't watch the game yesterday, but heard the halftime score and then the final. Couldn't believe we didn't even get one more score and that NE flew into the front!! Oh well, next year will bring new challenges.
I'm going to fly over to Cookie now and have a talk. bye

I've missed our chats! It's good to see you again. It was fun in the castle with Peppino, wasn't it? He found a new play area, so he'll be there today if you want to hang around and join him.
I hope you are all safe and warm in the storm. It's supposed to be a doozy! Well, it snowed here Sunday evening, pretty much all day yesterday, and overnight as well. Mom walked the dogs on a partially plowed street this morning, so the trucks haven't finished yet. We've had probably about 7 or 8 inches. The good news is that Josh came and dug out the driveway and walk late yesterday, so there's not much to clean up today. Mom says if he calls again, though, she'll pay him to do the work. There's not much to report, mom is catching up on some reading and we are getting lots of mom time. I hope you are getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

I am so glad to be able to spend at least a part of this special occasion with you at the castle. It is so nice and warm here, not like at home where it is back to the deep freeze. Tell me what is planned for the rest of the evening - I am game for anything that you and King Peppino might have planned.
