  Hi Snowflake
Hope your mom is feeling much better. My mom is still coughing up a lung!
I’m back! Mom was late getting home tonight. But, it’s ok because she came home with a bag of chew toys for me. We had two days of snow and cold. Today was 24 with the nights down to 11 degrees. I hear that mom saw grass and some flowers downstate must be nice!

I was a very good girl today and helped mom put the groceries away. We got to enjoy window sun bathing afterwards. Then we called Falco, Willie, Peppy’s house. I was chatting with them and Aunt Arlene. I enjoy talking on the phone.
As you can see the snow hasn’t melted very much. But, we can now see out all of the windows. It’s going to stay in the high 40’s to 50 thru Sunday. Monday, we will get a little more snow. If you want to go sledding, come on over.

Thanks for the delicious breakfast but remember Cheyenne and I are flying home today. I haven't been home in a while. Maybe next weekend you & Jedi and whoever else wants to come, can fly up to our home. Okay, Babe I had such a great time with you and your Brothers as I always do. I'm waiting for Cheyenne to get ready and then we're going to leave. Hope your Mom gets some relief from her pain soon. Here's a vote for you, Babe.

MOMS NOT DOING VERY WELL. THE HARDEST IS TRYING TO SLEEP AT NIGHT. THEN HER USUAL MORNING OF SNEEZING IS TAKING A TOLL. THE BATHROOM SINK BECAME CLOGGED AND HAD TO CALL A PLUMBER WHO CAME THIS MORNING. MOM HAD TO CLEAN THE BATHROOM BEFORE THE PLUMBER SAW IT. THEN SHE HAD TO CLEAN IT AFTER HE LEFT. THE PLUMBER KEPT TELLING MOM NOT TO KEEP BENDING DOWN. IT WASNT THE BENDING DOWN THAT GOT MOM BUT THE STANDING UP AFTERWARDS. ANYWAY AT LEAST ITS FIXED AND THE BATHROOM IS CLEAN. MOM JUST KEEPS TAKING TYLENOL. THE WHOE BACK THING STARTED WHEN DAD ASKED MOM TO CLEAN UP SOME LEAVES ON THE SIDE OF THE YARD ON MONDAY. MOM DID BUT THEN TRIPPED ON A LOG BURIED UNDER ALL THE LEAVES AND FLIPPED OVER THE HILLSIDE.

I WANT TO GIVE MY MOST SINCERE APOLOGIES FOR NOT GET BACK TO EVRYBIRDY SOONER. I HAVE BEEN READING MY BLOGS BUT SINCE I CANT TYPE I HAD TO WAIT FOR MOM. I AM THRILLED TO BE QUEEN.CAN YOU BELIEVE I BECAME QUEEN ON APRIL FOOLD DAY! WHO ELSE BUT ME, RIGHT? I DIDNT THINK I COULD WIN IT. OF COURSE I WON BECAUSE OF ALL MY DEAR FRIENDS SUPPORT. BOO BOO WORKED HER LITTLE TAIL FEATHERS OFF HELPING ME AND WAS ECSTATIC OVER WINNING BOTD TODAY. PADDY AND PIDDY WERE OVER JOYED TO GET TO COME TO THE CASTE WITH US AND HAVE BEEN DANCING THE DAYS AWAY. WE ARE THOROUGHLY ENJOYING OUR TIME AT THE CASTLE AND EXTEND AN OPEN INVITIATION TO EVERYBIRDY TO COME AND JOIN US ANYTIME AND STAY AS LONG AS THEY WANT. ITS ON ME.

I know what you mean! I was having BC problems, squawk page etc. Then I had net problems. I was just trying to get to your farewell castle party. I see there is some leftover cake. I'll enjoy a piece.
Well, after a couple of sunny days in the 40’s (so nice) we dropped back down to the mid 30’s. The bad news is we have a winter storm hitting us on Friday! Give us a break!!!!
Last night was the second night that our internet crashed. Mom called the cable company and they said, yeah our system crashed again you might have it working tomorrow … GRRR!

How is it just being a 'civilian' again? Do you miss the castle?
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

  Good morning, Queen Snowflake!
Thank you so much for my BOTD surprise! I had lots and lots of fun exploring the castle and causing trouble with the little racing piggies! heheh!

I have been having so much fun here at my new home. Did you know that I've only been here for a week and one day? Mother and I both agree that it feels as if I've been here for forever. Mother's training is going very well. She's quickly learning to pick up my poops quickly or else I'll go back later when they're dry and try to eat them - hehe! She had to pull one right out of my mouth the other day.

She's also learning to never stop watching me when I'm out, even for a second! I love climbing the curtains and getting into all sorts of mischief, like biting her earrings or trying to tangle my tootsies in her hair. Hehehe! I have been good sometimes though! I have recently started eating apple and learned that I love it. Besides peanuts, it's the only food other than pellets that I'll try though. Mother hasn't given up though!

Yesterday, Mother tried to trim my nails, because they are quite long. I'm a bit clumsy because of them. Mother has been training me through the week to be comfortable with her hand around my entire body, so I took to that quite well. But when HER mother came over with those clipper things, I changed my mind on the whole situation. A few hard bites to Mother's hand, some screaming and wasted minutes later, they got one nail clipped (:

Thanks again for my BOTD the other day! I think I'll go back to playing on my cage top now. Hopefully I'll come back and talk to you all again soon!

Until then,

Miss Daisy ♥

In case I did'nt say so before, you were a wonderful Queen! I know Apache is proud of you, as am I! So is Angel Ms. Chirps!!
the Macaw guards should be very grateful to you for whipping them into shape! When Cori comes in tomorrow, she'll probably spend all her time strutting in from of all those very buff boy birds!Hehehehe!!! (Better warn them, I think she's a little hormonal!) I'm sorry I haven't been over much, but as you know the Pearl sailed very quickly and I got to be on it! I'll see if Puffin and I can spend some time at the KB when you get there!
Tell Apache not to worry, I know you're in love with him, even though I see a lot of boy-birds gazing at you!Hahaha!!! They stop that when they see me glaring at them, after all you are my adopted fister!(Also, I think Angel Ms. Chirps would drop a lightening bolt on them if they get too forward!)Hahaha!!!

  HI QUEEN SNOWFLAKE
Boo Boo announces before Coris speech that they woke up to a dusting of snow this morning and then she wishes all the birds a lovely day.
Many of the birds inhabiting the south american rainforest depend on old growth forests for their winter stay before migrating north in the spring. the deforestation and destruction of the rain forests are wrecking havoc on migratory birds. while in the north migratory birds might live entirely on insects upon arrival of the old growth forests they will depend entirely on fruits to sustain them. logging for timber by cutting down old growth tress plus the fragmentation of the forests by the oil and gas companies by drilling and fracking are causing an alarming decrease in bird populations. this hasn't even covered the topic of all the toxic spills that have occurred polluting fresh drinking sources and polluting the air. I’m sorry to say the latest news from Galveston Texas is not good.
The slick caused by the recent toxic spill in the Gulf of Mexico is drifting toward Chester’s Island, a critical bird habitat in Matagorda Bay. The island hosts tens of thousands of breeding waterbirds each year.This crisis is far from over.
thats why i would like to talk today about trees and their importance.
THE VALUE AMOUNT OF A TREE IS $193,250. according to Professor T.M.Dass of the university of Calcutta. One tree living 50 years will generate $31,250 worth of oxygen, provide $62,000 worth of air pollution control, control soil erosion and increase soil fertility to the tune of $31,250 recycle $37,500 worth of water and provide a home for animals worth $31,250. this of course does not include the value of the fruits or beauty derived from trees.

  HI QUEEN SNOWFLAKE
Ravens have inspired a large body of folklore and legend which is not entirely negative. i would like to concentrate on the more positive tales . for a good laugh you can google the Raven saying Never More Never more WHACKA WHACKA WHACKA on u-tube.

the vikings worshipped and revered ravens and its image was carried on all their banners and shields. since ravens had the power of human speech they were thought to fly all over the world everyday returning at night to tell of what they had seen and heard. the irish phrase"ravens knowledge" applies to anyone who appears to see and know all. in europe the raven was considered a mystical and magical bird. Alexander the Great was said to have been guided across the desert by two ravens sent from heaven. in Briton legend maintains that England will not fall as long as Ravens remain in the tower of London.

the raven was connected with the creation of the world by american indians who made people out of a rock and a leaf. the raven showed the leaf to the people and said "see this leaf" you are to be like it. when the leaf falls from the branch and rots there is nothing left. thus the raven also brought death to the world. one indian tribe believed he raven was a mythical ancestor of their tribe and performed many wonderful deeds at the beginning of the world. one such deed was determining the particular task a bird should perform, where they should live and what their color should be. for instance the American Robin was was to give pleasure to man through its beauty. all birds were told to dress differently so they could recognize each other. the Blue-Jay was told to pie its hair high and tie it with a string. the magical Raven could transform itself into whatever shape it chose and remove its feathers like a coat. as a spirit of creation he had not beginning or no end.

The rain came for many hours last night. We woke up to ice covered snow and icy/slushy roads. But, the cool thing was, Mrs. Fox came to our patio door via my dad’s tunnel thru the snow. I wish I had been awake to see her.
Hugs
Chyna

  HI QUEEN SNOWFLAKE
Cori decides to do something a little different today and tells Boo Boo to take a seat with the rest of the bird audience because today she is talking about Blue Jays. Boo Boo clapped her wings with glee upon hearing this and listens intently to Cori.

noisy and fearless and found throughout the eastern united states and canada but also extending westward and sometimes spotted in western states. there are a few legends that blue jays have acquired over the years. southerners say Blue Jays were yoked to a plow by a sparrow and the mark left by the ole can still be seen on the blue jays breast.
the Cherokee indianas suggest that if find a blue jay feather, soak it in water and then gently brush a childs eye with it, the child will become an wary riser. this will not work if the feather is taken from the bird, it must be found on the ground.
indians from the hudson bay area believe the Canadian jay crowed out a warning whenever the tried to sneak up on a Eskimo camp and for this reason the indians often killed the Canada Jay
because Blue Jays do not always retrieve all of the acorns and other seeds they bury in the fall, they are friends to the forest by "planting" new seeds.
around the time automobiles became common, a Jaywalker meant a rustic bumpkin who didn't look where he was going and a "Jay" often referred to a silly person perhaps because they were considered vain about their gaudy plumage.

HAPPY TGIF DAY
THANKYOU FOR YOUR VOTES
love Cori and Boo Boo (campaign manager)
