We found each other at the Panthers football field.I was lost and all alone.Still a baby.My mommy and my skin brother Kevin found me and I found them.I was so scared I walked up to my big frother Kevin and my mommy.Kevin picked me up.My mommy and Kevin fell in love with me.And they brought me to my home.I was so hungry and cold my mommy fed me and held me close to her all night long to keep me warm.I never would have made it by myself in the cold night.And I could have been stomped down by those big football players who couldn't see me in the dark...I'm now with my family where I'm loved and protected.We are so bonded.I am so happy to be part of the family I am meant to be with...Now Im as tough as nails heehee...

We said goodbye to our 15 year old doggie (Ms Tiger) yesterday. Mom is a mess but knows it was the right thing to do because she was in pain and not getting around well without falling. Mom already misses her girl. We are all sad and hope mom feels better soon. Have a great day. V4U. Hugs.

  Heya, Panther!
I am doing great. Mom says I look like her but she has a couple hairs coming out of the very thin spot on her head. I don't have any feathers. But she sneaks the antibiotic on it when I am not expecting it. At least her fingers don't get shredded!

Not much happening here. It was a lovely day with Mom. Colder, with winds that gusted to 40 mph. Sounded like winter when you were near the window in Mom's bedroom. Nice and toasty inside though.

We stopped over at Mario's memorial too, but think we mixed up the times. In any case, we did get there and it was lovely.

  Hi Panther
A few birdies have commented on my mom's fight over getting the hospital bill from last August paid by the insurance co, and Mom would like for me to make it clear that the villain in this scenario is the hospital not Blue Cross. B.C. has asked the hospital for the records of the procedure since they used an invalid code in their billing for several months now. Apparently they finally received all 125 pages of it, and hopefully Mom's claim will finally be processed. This hospital is always a problem, and Mom has sworn to never have anything done there ever again. Of course, hopefully she won't need another hospital stay at all.

I hope everybirdy had a good time at the milonga last night. I think it went quite well, and the awards presentation was a lot of fun for me. I just love giving out prizes to all my friends and buddies. And the food, drinks and music was all terrific. How about that corned beef by Lizzie, and I loved Ms BB's green ice cubes. However when Chyna sang Danny Boy it brought down the house.

Mom went to the gym this morning, and although she came home very sweaty she took me out for my sunbath first thing because the temp was just right if we sat next to the shade of the gardenia tree. There was a good breeze blowing, so I didn't need to worry if she was extra stinky. She did take a shower as soon as we came in though. With a high of 82, if was nice enough. Tomorrow they are calling for 83 degrees, and Mom doesn't go to the gym on Mondays so we will get out early. However those trash trucks will be rumbling by, so Mom might have to put my outside cage in her lap a time or two. It's pretty big, so it really fills up the chair. Makes me a lot more comfortable when those noise machines roar by though.

  Hi Panther
The Purpose of Play
All play that wild birds may use helps them develop necessary survival skills. Even adult birds may continue to play and refine their abilities, though not necessarily with the same frequency as juvenile birds play.
Manipulation play helps birds get more coordinated to build nests, capture prey or extract food from different sources. This type of play keeps bills and talons in good condition and builds up the necessary muscle strength and dexterity for intricate actions.
Investigation play teaches young birds about the world they inhabit, including edible and inedible foods and what objects are safe to touch. As birds investigate more, they refine their ability to cache objects and develop their senses.
Chasing play strengthens wing muscles and helps young birds develop greater agility in the air, or for terrestrial birds, strengthens their legs and helps them be more agile when running. This also helps carnivorous birds develop sharper hunting skills.
Taunting play sharpens a bird's reflexes and increases their agility. It also helps them learn to anticipate prey reactions or how to avoid predators, and will be useful for mobbing behaviors or defending their territory.
Balancing play strengthens foot and leg muscles and helps birds learn how to use their wings to counterbalance air currents or disruptions. Balancing can also be useful for different types of foraging or courtship displays.
Curiosity play teaches birds more about their world, expanding their knowledge of both threats and benefits and helping them react to the unexpected. Curious birds can be more adaptable and will be more successful when encountering changes in their habitat.
Mimicry behavior teaches young birds how to act like adults of their species and learn essential skills such as proper sounds and songs or how to use their unique bills or other physical attributes to the best effect.
While different play behaviors all have a purpose in helping birds survive, some birds do seem to play just for the sheer joy and fun of the activity. As with many types of bird behaviors, the exact purpose of all play is not yet understood, even by dedicated ornithologists, but birders can still enjoy watching the playful behavior of birds. Every time they see their feathered friends engage in another game, they learn just a bit more about birds even as the playing birds are learning more about their world.

Congrats on your win last night!
We want to thank everyone who hosted and worked hard for another successful milonga. Kiddo, Taz, Sam, Lizzie, and everyone else, including the dancing leprechauns, made it a great event. Congrats to all the picture winners, too. It was tough to vote this time, all the pics were outstanding.
Yesterday was a busy one for mom, and today looks to be a bit better. She is working at the museum from 1 to 4 on the African wildlife cart. It should be interesting, they got the giraffe ankle bone (cannon bone) back on the cart, and added a lion and cheetah pelt. There are also some cool skulls there to put out, a gorilla, a horn from a sable, and a few other things. It should be a fun afternoon.
After mom gets home, she's ours for the evening. It's still cold here, so I know mom will come straight home to be with us. Of course, she'll clean cages first, but then she's ours! I hope you are having a terrific day, getting lots of cuddles, scritches, and maybe even an extra treat. Hugs, Falco

So great to see you and the flock at the Milonga. Such a fun event. Congrats on the award. Know many birds were having BC issues but we didn't notice anything. Always eggspect it to be slow though.

Congrats on your win at the Milonga!!

We are supposed to get sleet and snow tomorrow. UGH. It was nice but a bit chilly today. Lots of sun.

Mom is not sure what happened, and neither am I, but I bumped my head someplace, and now I have this big old patch of bald!! My feathers were on the floor, and Mom heard a noise when she was in the bathroom. I made a beeline for her, and when she saw me, no feathers! I think I beaned my noggin. Oh, are those feathers gonna drive me nuts when they grow in. My cleaned the area off, and put a bit of antibiotic on it cuz there was a red spot. She is worried about me getting a concussion, but so far I am eating and being my usual self, so I guess I am doing okay.

Congrats on your win at the milonga! Way to go!
Today mom got some bad news. Quincy and Danny, the bob white quail who lived at the center, got put down yesterday. It's a shame, but both boys were close to 9 years old! In the wild, they live for a year or 2, and in captivity they can survive to 5, so we were lucky to have the boys for nearly 9 years. Mom cried, of course, but she realized a few months ago that their time was short.
In other news, mom attended a mammal handling class today, and at the end, they said to take mammals off site the volunteer first had to go with staff a time or 2. Mom asked if that was necessary for her, since she's been doing that for 13 years! They told her no, they would grandfather her in, haha.
Then she worked at the museum for the Preservation Fair today. She worked at a table that showed the effects of things like water, abrasion, light, and even using the wrong kind of pen could damage artifacts, prints, photos, etc. Did you know that Sharpies are not permanent, and can cause damage to your CDs? Mom found that out today. She writes on all the CDs she burns, and uses a sharpie. Guess that stops today.
I hope you are having a great evening. We'll talk more tomorrow. Hugs to you, Falco

I am planning on being at the Irish milonga tonight with my gal Suzi so hope to see you all there later tonight! I usually help mom with my blogs here to all my friends on BC. Sometimes I will sit behind her on the couch and just watch. Other times I get down by the key board and wipe my beak or get mom to hold me a bit. Well if you ever want to get the parronts confused just hit that one that says caps lock. Yep that sure messes everything up especially when they need to sign in or do the pass word on something. Then to top things off trying to log into BC is bad enough but oh boy when I hit that key sure takes lots longer but now I notice mom is checking to make sure that cap lock isn’t on when she cant get on BC. Yep I try to help as much as I can LOL. “When I count my blessings I count my BC family” Leaving a vote with my note, hugs from Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Panther
Birds That Play
All birds engage in playful behaviors, and more intelligent bird species need greater amounts of the mental stimulation that comes from play as they develop. Bird species that can seem especially playful include…Jays, crows, rooks, ravens, magpies and other corvids,Parrots, parakeets, macaws and Keas,Tits, chickadees, nuthatches and small finches,Gulls, terns and related species.
Many social and adaptable birds also play, as do young birds of nearly all species as they socialize with their siblings in the nest. The extent of play and how much play each bird species carries into maturity varies, and different birds engage in different types of play to help them develop a range of skills.
Types of Bird Play
There are many different behaviors birds engage in that could appear to be play. The most common playful actions include…
Manipulation: Using the bill or talons to drop, toss, bend, tear, rip or otherwise manipulate objects, even objects without any food value.
Investigation: Seeking out unique objects or trying a wide range of different foods, continually noting new objects and poking or prodding them.
Chasing: Following one another in short or acrobatic flights, or chasing other objects such as insects or fluttering leaves.
Taunting: Teasing or deliberately harassing one another or other creatures, such as teasing a domestic cat or instigating fights.
Balancing: Swinging, swaying or dangling on wires or weak branches, possibly releasing and reattempting different acrobatic actions.
Curiosity: Responding to pishing or other unique noises, such as being attracted by ringtones, mechanical noises or music.
Mimicry: Imitating an adult's behavior, including physical actions such as foraging or preening as well as songs and sounds.
Not all playful birds will engage in the same behaviors, but they often try different actions and activities as they are learning new skills and refining their abilities. Play may be only between birds of the same species, while some types of play, particularly chasing or taunting, may be between birds of different species.

  Hi, Panther
More 90s? That's terrible. At least we cooled down yesterday. Back to the low 70s but forecast for temps to be back and forth from 70s-80s depending on the day thru the w/e and into next week. Naturally we hope to be more in the 70s. Good that it cools at night and having the security door means everything is all locked and safe and still get the cool air.

We hope the Sharks can win today's game. They need all the wins they can get from here on out.

Mom doesn't watch the basketball games but does check the standings. Knew the Warriors have never been that dominant a team and didn't know they had a new coach. What a difference that obviously made. Let's hope they go all the way. What's the ultimate championship for basketball called? (Know hockey is Stanley Cup, football is SuperBowl, baseball is World Series.) No idea about basketball.

Keep cool, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Hi Panther,
Just to let you know Spot has already set the time and place on the calender page.

It'll be this Sunday at 1 pm now. Things just seems to change quickly here.

Thank you Sugar for putting Mario's Celebration of life on the calendar page for all to view.

This way every birdie can come and join in.

The Castle Page number is 276082 and it will be in the Ballroom this Sunday.
I'm guessing they only have 1 ballroom ? I don't want to get lost.

I guess Spot knew the Ballroom page number, that's good. :)

Since he said it starts at 1 pm EST I'll try to set up early so that if some birdies can only come in the morning it will be okay. I'll be there with my flock to welcome them. :)

Here's a vote for you my sweet friend !

Love & hugs,

Pookie

  Hi Panther

Thanks for the stew dinner, it was yummy. and warmed me up.
Today I went for a ride in the car with mom. I saw some sun and asked if we were going to Florida? She said no but we should be. Dad was using some smelly ant stuff in the basement so, we had to be gone most of the day.
Very sad news today for the Pitts-Hays Eagle parronts. The remaining egg cracked open but was not viable. Mom eagle is so sad and staying with the lost baby. I hope to see them again next year.
Hugs
Chyna

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

  Heya, Panther!
Can you send some of that warmth this way? We had 20's with wind chills in the single digits. Mom wore her heavy winter coat. UGH!!!

Mom says that her boss told her that she is going to talk to the Big Boss about projects in other areas, as they don't want to lose her from the company. Mom also got submitted to a financial company but she has no hopes of that one--she worked in insurance pretty much her whole life, or as a nurse. So she understands health insurance and health stuff best. And then there is the tempting retirement part. So she will see what happens. She should have money coming in to the end of April or early May. She will figure it out by then!

Your buddy,
Kaji
