I was looking for a Macaw & decided to get one that needed a good home. I saw an ad in the paper, went to see her,& brought her home that day 16 years ago!
A heartfelt thanks to all my friends for BOTD 11/20/12!

I am a Military Macaw from Irwin, PA.

Mommy baby, Bub or Bubby. I picked these names myself!

19 years old   F

Military Macaw

Pistachios, pizza, "sketties", & lollipops.

On her perch, my cane or strolling around the floor, or Mom's shoulder or head.

Doesn't like to be in her cage & doesn't like that our 2 1/2 yr Dachshund thinks she's the boss of her.
NEVER touch my tail feathers!!!

My Mom spends lots of time with me. We play, dance & sing & just enjoy sitting together & cuddling.

Barks at my dogs, loves to sing loudly & off key to Pink Floyd. I LOVE to give kisses!!!.

  Hi Tia!
Hi there, it is Jester! How are you doing? I'm doing well. Right now I have a bunch of pin feathers growing in on my chest, and mom is hoping that I won't bother them. but mom gave me a new toy to play with while I'm in here. Mom made me a bunch of fun toys the other night to keep me busy. I love homemade toys! They are so fun to play with, especially when they are filled with treats! Mom is learning how to play the piano, and I really love to listen to her play! Her keyboard is in the same room as my cage, so I love when she comes in and practices. (: Hugs, Jester

  Hi, TiaMaria
Thank you for the update. We are keeping our wings crossed that your mom continues to heal and no more complications. So much better for your mom to have that treatment at home. We will see you whenever your mom feels up to it. No worries as none of us will forget you!

We got some much needed rain over the w/e. All in the morning and then it had the afternoon to soak in. The sun came out briefly and mom saw a rainbow on her way home from work yesterday.

Have a great day, wing hugs beak kisses and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

  Hi Tia & aunt Sandy, from your old friend Jenny
...we feel so bad for your sweet momma having all that pain, and we hope se will be better very soon! We have really missed you guys on the BC! Hi Tia gang, at 10:00 AM, my dad finally got the BC up and running, don't laugh, at his age he said that was kind of a good thing, LOL! However with the BC being down for so long, it ate up a lot of our designated BC time! Tomorrow he has two appointments at our local VA Outpatient Clinic for a complete physical and an eye doctor visit to test for Diabetic Retinopathy, he needs that one! We love you guys, have a great day, and give our love to all in your magic home full of love, see ya tomorrow...

Forever love from Jenny & our Dallas flock

  Hi Tia
Wow, your mom has been through a lot! We feel bad for her. Hope she is getting better now, though.
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

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

  What a sight for sore eyes !
You made me so happy with your visit yesterday ! I've missed you lots ! Your poor mom though, what an ordeal she's been through - she sure is lucky to have you there helping to take care of her :)

Things here have been pretty quiet - typical NY winters - in fact Mom is waiting now to see if there'll be a delay, snow day, or if she'll have to schlep in. The roads look fine - but it could be ice and the changeover to snow is happening later than expected. Lots of districts have already called the day . . . another day of total freedom would be nice ! I had that yesterday from the moment I got up for my breakfast till bedtime :)

Then next week she has her mid-winter break - a whole entire week of Cookie playtime !

Hope you have a great day and welcome back ! love Cookie

  Hi Tia
Glad your mom is doing some better at least but sure is a long ordeal! Yesterday mom had her coat and purse out and I knew she was going somewhere so I flew over to be with her. Well she hoodwinked me! Yep took me downstairs and there was my wingabago waiting on me and put me in and then into the car and off we went to the warehouse for my beak and nail trim! I was so upset when I came home I just sat and pouted but today I am over it. I did see two cockatoos there and boy the one sure had lots to say. I saw a caique getting a trim job too. I didn’t want any birdy to notice me so I made love bird whistles like I learned from Chi chi. Cindy said she heard a love bird and mom told on me. Mom said my nails hurt her hand and it was in the 40’s yesterday so that is why she took me. I am just glad its over! “The wagon rests in winter, the sleigh in summer, the horses never..” Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Tiamaria
Oh how awful all the things your poor sweet Momma had to endure,she sounds like my Mom who refuses to be trapped in the hospital and clawed her way out also,they could care less that you have a family to take care of and who needs you to be there with them.Our Nana has a bunion and has had it forever and we never knew you could have it removed either!I guess its just better to keep the thing on you and not opt out for all that eggstra pain and aggravation like your poor Momma had to go through!Mom will be sure to put her name in our book of special intentions at church for extra prayers each week for healing and peace from pain.Just know that she will always be in our thoughts and prayers for healing and peace from pain.Give her our love and a warm wing hug from my Mom too! Its so good to hear from you again!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses and a vote for you too!Loving you always and forever,Dixie and flock ad family and Mom too!

  Hi Tia
Mom has seen those cool walkers and is envious. Was it the fall the day after surgery that maybe helped cause the osteo myletis? When mom did her hip the doc told her to watch for fevers. YAY that mom had in house care, probably a lot safer.
Friends have had that bunion thing done and are happy to be able to wear normal shoes now. Hope when all is said and done mom can say the same.
Thank you for the update--WOW, what a time your mom has had.

  Hello to all my dear birdie friends & parronts! Thank u all so very much for my 19th Hatchday wishes on 1/31/15 & for BOTD on 2/1/15! U are all so kind & loving to think of me when we haven't been on BC for so long! Mom & I are truly thankful for our wonderful BC friends & we have missed u all so very much!

So much has been happening. Mom is FINALLY doing a little better. Mom had foot surgery on 9/30/14, & really had a rough time with it. Mom's bone from the big toe to the ankle was twisted. The surgeon removed the cartilage & inserted a plate & 5 screws. Since he was doing that, mom decided to have him remove the large bunion from her big toe...which she really regrets! Mom had the stitches removed after 2 weeks & everything looked good at that point. After about 3 weeks, her foot swelled bad & turned purple & the large incision opened up & she started running a 105 temp. Mom was admitted to the hospital. They did a bunch of tests & an MRI & told her she had Osteo Myletis...a bad infection in the bone...but not where the plate was, but where the bunion was removed. After 4 days in the hospital, they told her she needed 6-8 weeks of IV antibiotics & moved her to a nursing home. Let me tell u, mom WAS NOT her usual pleasant self & was driving the doctors & nurses crazy! They must not have been animal lovers, because they didn't seem to care that she had 6 animals at home & couldn't stay there for 6-8 weeks! Mom must have done the right amount of bitching coz it was cleared by her insurance company to do the treatment at home & have a visiting nurse come. She was in the nursing home for 4 days. They put a PICC line in her upper arm, which is a type of central line for long term IV medication use. Mom had the PICC line for 7 weeks & had it removed 4 days before Christmas.

Mom had a very difficult time using the crutches & fell the day after surgery. She had a surgical shoe on & when she fell, her ankle bent backwards & is still jacked up. She still can't put full weight on it yet, but her doctor gave her this really cool walker that has a seat on it! Mom won't let me anywhere near it, though. For some strange reason, she thinks that I will snip the break wires!

I promise I will be back on BC & keep in touch with my dear friends! Probably not daily, but I will make sure mom gets on here, or I'll give her a hard pinch!
Love to all & a vote

TiaMaria & mom Sandy

  Happy Bird-of-the-day from Flitzer and Dad in Bflo
Hello, BirdChannel Friends. Flitzer in The Director's Chair here.

This month is Oscar Month, so we're going to be Squawking about Movies.

Stay tuned as we dish about the stars, the films, those hideous designer gowns and all the poop that hits The Red Carpet.

- - - - -
The beginnings of film:
Silent Films were never silent!
Rather than leave audiences with only the noise of the projector as an accompaniment, theater owners hired a pianist or organist or, in large urban theaters, a full orchestra to play music that fit the mood of the film at any given moment. By the early 1920s, most films came with a prepared list of sheet music to be used for this purpose, and complete film scores were composed for major productions.

Come visit me, Flitzer behind the great movies.
