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!".

It looks like we are in for a nasty overnight snow and Ice storm, the guessers say 8 to 12 inches, but we'll believe it when we see it! We can't complain, we have not had much nastiness so far this Winter, and we DO NOT trust Punxatauny Phil, that dude in on somebody's payroll, LOL! Christy & I are watching the Super Bowl at Sugar's home, with her, aunt Eileen, Scoobers, and Mandy! I have promised no swearing or throwing my beer cans at their TV, bummer! Have great Saturday, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow...

  Hi CuBird
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

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Peppino, Divo & Falco.

  Hi CUBird
We woke up this morning to another dismal grayish day out there and another sunless day the highs for the day were 32 which we never saw and the lows will be 27 it's 30 right now and snowing hard. As Mom finished up our room,cleaning and feeding us and getting our cages set she vacuumed the whole house as she couldn't do it yesterday with everyone here and as she was putting the vacuum away skin bro drove into the spare driveway.He came in and Mom served him breakfast of English muffins with strawberry jam and butter and made him some hot coffee. He stayed for several hours and then took off to pay his car insurance bill and then was short on money for some reason they told him he needed $11.00 more,they must've raised the price on him,he has to call the person in charge but he has to wait to do that now because everyone is gone because of the storm.He called Mom but he was right down the street from Nana so Mom told him to get the money from her and Mom will pay Nana back when she sees her,he felt bad about taking the money from Nana but Mom told him he'd better get down there before they cut him off his insurance,so he did.Then he went back to Nana's and is helping her get her fireplace started and bringing up some logs for her to burn to keep them both warm and my cousins,skin bro will be staying with Nana,he went back to his apartment to get some things.My dad was able to come home for a few hours to get a hot meal and an hours nap before he has to be back out to work the storm at 6:00pm tonight,Mom had his dinner on the table as he walked in the door at 4:00pm,Mom finished the dinner dishes and then reloaded two lunch cooler bags/boxes for him with everything she could fit inside,Kcups(EggNog flavor),juice boxes,8 PB&J sandwiches,cookies,breakfast bars and Pop tarts.Mom is going to get the coal/wood stove started tonight so that if and when the power goes off we can all come right into the tv room and stay warm with her,she'll shut the door to the rest of the house so we don't lose the heat out there.She still has to get all our cages in(deck cage and other smaller cages as we are in a triple decker and that is too tall and heavy to move and will have to be taken apart to fit though the door and down the step to the sunken living room(tv room).It looks like Mom isn't going anywhere for the whole week as this storm isn't going to be over until Wednesday sometime.My dad went out after he got to work and brought Mom back two 40lb bags of coal to use so she will have enough for at least two or three days.Mom just hates that stove as its so old,and falling apart on the inside and the thing that shakes the ashes down usually is frozen so Mom's gotta go down on her belly to scrape it all off with the scraper thing which really doesn't work that well.Now the wind is picking up and the snow is blowing sideways!Mom is so praying our power stays on.We apologize for the rush tonight as Mom is trying to have us answer as many blogs as she can before th

  Congrats for BOTD lovely Ms Cu-Bird, from Ms LaLo
Dad watched the 1st half of the Pro-Bowl last night and just couldn't take it any longer, those guys are high paid pros, and nobody wants to hurt anybody else, dad thought they should all wear little pink skirts, and carry parasols, LOL! All the new rule changes took all the fun out of the game, no kick offs, no blitzing, come on, give me a break! Our guessers have predicted 1 to 2 inches of snow, no big deal, but it will keep our dad at home today! Sweet LaLo was climbing all over dad, last night biting holes in his t-shirt, she loves her daddy so much! Our prayers are going out to our East coast birdie friends, Winter Storm Juno is said to be the worst ever, God Bless them all! Give our love to all in our happy home, stay warm, see ya tomorrow...

Our temperatures were ready to drop like a rock so yesterday after Mom finished cleaning our cages, and Dad did things he had to do, the two of them headed to the nearby village to pick up things they needed in the way of groceries and other stuff, knowing that tomorrow the roads would be like a skating rink. WE had a delicious assortment of veggies, but Mom did something silly. The phone rang and she put the plate on top of Micky's cage to run and answer it. She continued getting our supper ready, totally forgetting about the plate, when suddenly she heard a crash and it all came back to her. This was one of her plates from her set of dishes and she is not yet ready to be missing a plate. She went online, found the one she is missing and ordered it, and cringed at the cost of shipping to Canada. Of course the set is discontinued now, but she wants that plate. From now on, she will use plastic containers when preparing our fruits and veggies. After we had our dinner and they had theirs, Mom was so tired, she curled up on the couch and fell asleep. There went computer time again. Today is a bright and sunny day, even though it is cold, so this afternoon, it might be a popcorn and movie day. Wing hugs and Beaky Kisses from TiPaul

Mom is trying to do too much. She got her new humidifier the other day and came home exhausted. Then yesterday she had to make another trip into town. Two days of silent votes... and no computer time for me. Today we are back on track. She went to bed early and woke up with the sun. It looks to be a good day, but very cold again. We will have her all to ourselves in the bird room, with the promise of an afternoon movie and some snuggles. See you tomorrow... wing hugs and beaky kisses from TiPaul

  Hi CuBird
Last night was incredibly awesome! I do hope your fibblings did not bother you too much when they arrived home. It is too bad your mom cannot make a short visit to our place - we presently have a few visiting Greys here until sometime this week, one being one of the babies Mom raised. he has grown into such a character. he is so like his brother from another generation (a year or so older). Mom took a double take when he found his way into the kitchen. He looks so much like Leroy - and how the heck could it have been any birdy other than Leroy finding his way around the house. Mom was in shock. He got out of his cage and found her, just like that. Pepper helped to raise them, and pepper must have a lock on his cage, if that explains things. please direct your Mom to the bottom of my page, where your flower basket is sitting there waiting for you to pick it up, and put it on your own page. :)
We had all our cages cleaned yesterday and today, and it is about bedtime for both mom and perch time for me. Here is the rest of the news in copy and paste form... with a couple of changes.
It is still cold here... they were promising us 0 but it never got there yet. Tomorrow it is back to real freezing temperatures again. Mom decided to get another humidifier and looked online for one like we have - and she found someone selling one at a super price. She was laughing because she just sold a pair of dance boots to a friend, a pair she had bought which are too small for her because she has to wear special inserts when she dances. I don't get the joke - a pair of boots for a humidifier. Well, she said it works for her, and it will help her sinuses... see you tomorrow. wing hugs and beaky kisses from TiPaul

  Jasper pulls in to the driveway
and TiPaul and CuBird get out of the car and slowly head to the front door. It is very quiet - the rest of the flock has not come home yet, but TiPaul knows CuBird will get teased by certain birds. Thank you very much again for coming with me tonight. I had a wonderful time, even though we did get kicked off BC at one point when everything slowed down. TiPaul leans over and gently gives CuBird a beaky kiss on her cheek... and says I will see you again very soon, I hope. He turns and heads to the waiting car, turning back once to smile and wave to the lovely bid he has just spent the most wonderful evening with.

  TiPaul arrives at the home
of CuBird and nervously knocks on the door... Good evening Ms Tanya, I am TiPaul, here to pick up CuBird to take her to the milonga this evening. My fister Jasper will be driving, and she is a very good driver or Mom would not have allowed her to get her licence. Micky is also coming along, because we have practiced a line dance which we are hoping to do this evening. Oh CuBird - you look LOVELY! TiPaul hands this gorgeous Grey a basket of flowers that Jasper wanted to eat on the way here... (the picture is on my page and you can download it to put it on your page) and Micky was ready to bite her tail every time she looked at them. I guess we should be on our way now...we won't be too late. I have Mom's cell phone, so we can phone just in case there is a change of plans. See you later. TiPaul takes CuBird's wing gently, and off they go to the car, where Jasper is waiting patiently, with the back door open, ready for the happy couple to get in... Micky excitedly says hi while Jasper gets in, reminds everybirdy to put on their seat belts and they are on their way...

  Hello my Sweets...
I am all ready for tonight, but Mom says it is not yet time. She still has a few more cages to clean, and our bowls are all ready to put in our cages. She is doing pretty good considering she started late today. Jasper is our chauffeur tonight - she is looking for any reason to get away from Pepper and she also knows the way to the milonga. Besides, she can drive. hihihi I will be by to pick you up just before 8PM, since it only takes a few minutes to get to the Milonga the route Jasper takes. See you in just a few hours... I can't wait! Wing hugs and beaky kisses... TiPaul

  Good morning Sweetie...
I cannot wait until tonight. Mom got home from dancing last night and we did a few blogs but she was tired and wanted to get some sleep, because today is the day she cleans all our cages, and she will be working fast so as to finish early, and relax before being able to type for me all evening. Gotta love Mom. She usually sets up a movie in the living room for a few of the others who will sit nicely and watch, and I can sit with her and off we go to the Milonga. I can pick you up along the way, or we can meet there - whatever works better for you. It starts at 8 o'clock, and I am not going to get there way ahead of time. Have you thought about your New Year resolution? It has to be something we can keep, and they will be checking on us throughout the year. The rest of my flock backed out of this one. Besides, there was one time Mom went nuts typing for more than one of us for something - maybe it was a baseball game, because at the milongas not that many birds talked to us. They seem to hang out in clicks. That is okay with me. I am looking forward to spending the time with YOU! Mom said she will get me back here at the computer to read my blogs later on... because we are in the same time zone. Love and beaky kisses from TiPaul

  Hi CuBird
To heck with the macaws, of course we are in charge. You have never met Pepper. You don't WANT to meet Pepper. he tries to rule the bird room. he is the only bird that can stand atop of any of the bird cages and have the macaws go as quiet as can be. Mom is surprised by it too but that bird is something else. hihihi He also has the other Greys, except for me, doing what he tells them to do.

Mom went to town yesterday for an appointment, and when she got home, after fighting the traffic, she fed us, spent time with us, and then got the others settled in for the night. We started in on blogs and she looked at me and I saw it in her face - she was beat. I told her we would do my blogs while she has her coffee this morning. She gave me kisses and I think she probably was asleep before I was. Today she is typing up a storm, faster than I can think. It is going to be a busy day, and another cold one for us, but mom will be home with us all day. See you tomorrow... wing hugs and beaky kisses from TiPaul

I would like to thank you so much for supporting me on my quest to get into the 10K HOF, which I did yesterday, and for coming by to party with me. I think it is still going on strong, which is fine by me. I love a good party! Dad pointed out that I am the first bird from Canada, or out of the USA to get in, which makes it more exciting. Now, if only the world would recognize how we can all get along! Hugs and beaky kisses from TiPaul

  Hi CuBird my sweets
I did not know you had a bitten toe too. Was it just a minor bite or did you lose a part of your toe? Either way, that is an ouch! Those bigger birds or even those of the same size can be vicious at times and they are only protecting their own space. Mom wants to get plexi-glass to put atop of each of our cages so if one of us lands on another bird<s cage, we are safe. The problem is sometimes one bird will land on the side bars and you should see Mom run. She is fast! She once knocked over the bucket of water, nearly flew into another cage trying to catch a bird, but she caught the culprit, and git whoever it was into his or her cage and then cleaned up the water. We had a clean floor. hihihi


We don't know who is more tired from all this partying - us or Mom. Somebirdy said something about Mom not being at the castle Friday. She was... that is why she was so tired. She spent time watching us having fun before she went off dancing. Those castle parties are wild, and today with Pepper there, she decided to come home with me and do some serious blogging. Today our friends dropped off their birds to stay with Mom and us for 10 days while they are on vacation where it is hot. one of the birds is a Grey that mom raised, and he did something he never before - he pinched her. He was all happy to see her, and was up on her shoulder, and here was Mom carrying ceramic food bowls into the bird room. Well, he climbed down to see what was in them and he got her right on the skin between the thumb and index finger. Mom was so thankful this was not her left hand, which is the one she will be getting operated, because she would have dropped the bowl in that hand. That hurt! hihihi A certain bird had time out and went back to his cage for a little while. HE looked at Mom and said *I'm a bad bad bird.* Mom did everything not to crack up laughing. Pepper said heh heh heh. Mom got out of that room fast - she could not control herself. Pepper did have some say in raising the little ones way back then. So did I. I showed them how good it is to eat all sorts of veggies. Well, tomorrow might be the Magic day for me. I need less than 25 votes now. Thanks for all your support! Love and beaky kisses from TiPaul

  Hi Sweetie!
I just can't master flying. The other birds here - the Greys, the Amazons, they can fly, but me - I only grew my feathers back so maybe in time if I keep trying. I don't mind walking. I have been doing it all my life, but the others seem to enjoy flying. It looks like fun.

Mom got in really late last night from dancing, and was so tired, I told her just to get to sleep - we will do my blogs today. Some dancers from other schools where Mom and Dad almost moved, were there and they kept asking for more special requests. It was greyt fun for all. Today was Pepper's hatchday and we had a small party here and Pepper did not forget to ask for a new toy, but Mom had one all ready for him. She told me that when I get into the 10K club, she has a new shredder toy for me - one of the big ones that I especially love. I had so much fun in the castle yesterday with King Peppino and all my friends who came to visit me and that includes YOU! Thanks again for all your support. Yesterday, being BOTD was a bonus to my journey to the 10K HOF club. I never expected that. With love and beaky kisses from TiPaul.

  Hi Sweetie... ummm Cubird
TiPaul cannot stop laughing. So, Miranda got potted eh. We won't tell her we were laughing. You see - I finally stopped mutilating my feathers, and they are grown back except for the odd one that I will chew, just to remind myself I know how, but Mom gives me the dirty look and then I give her kisses, so it's okay. Even with all my feathers, I can't fly. I never could, and I have tried a few times, and I Know if I work at it, one day I will be able to. Mom's intention is to put a harness on me this summer, and get me outside in the open where she can run with me like she did back a few years ago when she raised the babies. Even if I get liftoff, it will be a good thing. If that happens, she will get me up to speed by using a bicycle or something to allow her to keep up with me. She really wants to teach me, knowing it will give me self esteem.
As for the milonga - I am excited too... A week this Saturday. I told Mom not to make any plans for that night!

After getting up twice in the night to add wood to the stove, Mom is ready for an early night of it. Her dance class was cancelled because too many people could not get their cars started. It is supposed to warm up in the night, which is good - we need a break from minus 40 temperatures. I spent time renovating my cage today, after it was so clean the other day. It is almost back to how I like it, but the weekend is coming fast which means it will be thorough cleaning time again. We will be having visitors come this weekend to stay for a week, but I will still get my blogging time with Mom. But now, I am going to get some scritches, and then have a snack and get to my perch which is nice and warm. Thanks again for all your support. With love and beaky kisses from TiPaul

  Hi CuBird
I really miss you, girl, haven't seen you since before your folks were on that cruise! Hope all is well with you and we haven't done anything to hurt feelings. Pino is so happy to be in the castle this month, and it's thanks to birds like Carter that helped him to get there.
It's 3 outside right now, and the dogs were even cold for their walk this morning. Poor furry things were holding up their feet! They won't wear boots, but they will wear sweaters, so mom thinks it was just their feet that were cold.
Mom has a few errands but if it doesn't warm up, they will wait for a warmer day. She finally got her Christmas Thank you cards out today and wrote them. It's about time, right? Also, her eyes aren't dilated today so she can read and write blogs much better than yesterday. I hope you are having a fun day and getting lots of attention and warm cuddles. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Peppino, Divo & Falco.

  Hi Cubird
I am so excited, doubly so now... that you said yes to going to the milonga with me! We will most definitely have a GREYT time! Have you thought about a New Years Resolution yet... one that you will keep? I can't think of any that I can be sure to keep ALL year round. That is a hard one. I am sure one will come to me when they ask me at the Milonga.

Mom took Marley to the vet today, and got her beak filed. She looks real pretty now. Heck, she is always pretty. After we all helped Mom and Dad eat their Shish Taouk dinners, I helped Mom get all the others to sleep and it was finally time for the computer. Of course there were distractions... the phone not working because the line froze, and other crazy things, but we are here now. Not every birdy has ridiculously cold weather like we do, and I don't think you want it either. it may be winter, but this is awful. It is supposed to go down to minus 32 Celsius, which is minus 25.6 Fahrenheit and with the wind chill it is minus 40 which is the same in either C or F. When is it going to be spring? Mom says not for a long time. Thanks for coming by... see you tomorrow. Love and beaky kisses from TiPaul

  Hi there Cu-Bird
So, you like to party. It seems there is another milonga coming up on Saturday the 17th... it should be very interesting. We have to make a New Years resolution - one we will keep. That is going to be a tough one. They are going to check up on us. Anyhow, would you like to go with me? I don't have the final details on it yet - I guess it will be posted on the Calendar Page. That is where Mom read me all that I know so far. It should be fun. I know Jasper's resolution and she has not even made it yet. I will tell her what it is when she needs to think of one and I am sure she can keep it all year round. hihihi

We are freezing here. Not in the house of course, but outdoors it is minus 29 Celcius, which is minus 20.2 Farenheit which is beyond cold. This is the coldest night we have had so far and it is getting colder. Mom has a good fire going in the stove and she just added another log. I like to watch it, but from far away. She stayed home all day today, and spent lots of time with us. She also downloaded some pictures people sent her from when she went away one weekend - she is making the DVDs for those who want them. She is behind in a few things she has to get done, but getting caught up slowly. Next month she will finally get her wrist surgery done, so will be out of commission for a couple of weeks. The doctor scheduled her in since the injection did not work. Knowing mom, she will get everything done, just slower. She has already requested a full cast instead of just a bandage, so we cannot bite away at it, and it can heal properly without her moving the wrong way. The fun part will be the drive home from the hospital because Dad doesn't drive anymore and the car is manual. But now, she is going to help me finish up here, and we are going to sleep. our room is very warm - the heating in there is a different system, and Mom is thinking about moving in with us for the night. See you tomorrow... love from TiPaul
