Hi! My name is TiaMaria, Thank you all for BOTM

I am a Military Macaw from GREENSBURG, PA.

Mommy baby, Bub or Bubby. I picked these names myself!
My hatchday is 1/31/96.

18 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
Did I tell you I have a new room mate. His name is Buba & he is a Military Macaw just like you.

He is just here till his Dad can find a new place to live. They had a fire in there old house & cant live there anymore. The fire department did more dammage than the small fire did. So far he stayes on his cage & I stay on mine but we do screach at each other. When he gets too loud I tell him to shut up like I do the small Tiels & Sun Conures in the room.

  Hi TiaMaria
Sorry we had to do the drawing of horses without your picks. I sent you emails but wasn't sure if I had the right one. Hope all is well.
RaneBeau's mom will be doing the derby pics as usual. So, I'm sure you will be hearing from her soon.
The derby is on May 10th.

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.

  Hi Tia Maria
We are so sorry it has been a month since our last blogging but the parront has been busy working 5am to 1:30pm for the last 8 weeks. She needs to save some money and also to pay home and car insurance. The A/C broke and she does not know yet how much will be the cost to repair it. The weather is getting hot here already.She also needs a new car, so many expenses.

On Monday 24February she got her first injection on the lower back, there was no much improvement after it, last Monday she got 2 more injections on her lower back, so far her lower back is not bothering her. On Monday 31 she will have another injection on the cervical area.

Also the computer is getting slow, and she does not understand windows 8 yet so she could start using her new laptop.

This is our current situation. Since she is very busy we don't know yet when we will be able to blog again.

This is all for know

See you soon

  How are u sweetie? It's been a crazy 1 1/2 weeks! All 3 g-kids had Strept throat...but all better now! I want to give u the last one of the bill of rights, then discuss some household hazards.
You have lots of rights, but I can only assure one. And that is, if u treat me the way I have described, I will reward u with unwavering love, humor, knowledge, beauty, dedication - and a sense of wonder & awe u haven't felt since u were a child. When u took me home, u became my Flock Leader, indeed, my entire universe - for life. I would hang the moon & stars for u if I could. We are one in Heart & Soul.

Some household hazards outside ur bird's cage to be aware of:
* unscreened windows & doors
* mirrors
* exposed electrical cords
* toxic houseplants
* unattended ashtrays
* venetian blind cords
* sliding glass doors
* ceiling fans
* open washing machines, dryers, refrigerators, freezers, ovens,
or dishwashers
* open toilet bowls
* uncovered fish tanks
* leaded stained glass items or inlaid jewelry
* uncovered cooking pots on the stove
* crayons & permanent markers
* pesticides, rodent killers & snail bait
* untended stove burners
* candles
* open trash cans
Next, we will talk about toxic plants. Have a great day sweetie!

  Hi Tiamaria
Boo Boo uses a lint brush on Cori to brush off all the pieces of shredded paper stuck in Coris feathers before Cori hits the stage and begins her speech for the day.

all creatures gather into groups at some point in their lives making it harder for packs of prey to attack them, collective wisdom to make better decisions, or just a social time for mating. these groups have been given non-scientific names based on mans understanding or beliefs at the time they were named. many bits of folklore were once taken as fact and have since been proven to be false.ideas like sparrows spontaneously generated from horsehair and mud or that birds hibernate en masse at the bottom of oceans and lakes. don't forget that the general belief was that the earth was flat and what other explanation could explain where large groups of migrating birds were flying off over the oceans yet always returned each spring.
even before written language birds have inspired mans folklore, superstition and even religion.they are representatives of hope and despair, good luck and bad.


love Cori and Boo Boo(campaign manager

ps. we forgot to add from yesterday the sayings FREE AS A BIRD: not true as birds are prisoners of the land they fly over and the air they fly through .rules imposed by nature
BIRD BRAIN: to explain someone who is not too bright. not true as we all know how very intelligent birds are (thanks Spot for reminding us)

  Hi Queen Tiamaria
Boo Boo holds up her wings before Cori gives her talk. she implores every birdie to please not take pictures of Cori using any type of flash because bright lights scare Cori.
The United Nations has declared today as World Wildlife Day, coinciding with the signing of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) in Washington, D.C. on March 3, 1973.
World Wildlife Day provides a strong opportunity for the global conservation community to speak with a unified voice and declare that there is no excuse for the indiscriminate killing, selling, or captivity of wild animals.
march 3rd. todays topic WORDS FROM BIRDS:
1) BIRD IN THE HAND IS WORTH TWO IN THE BUSH: better to cherish what we have than to look longingly at things that are beyond our reach
2) LIKE WATER OFF OF A DUCKS BACK: Let everyday annoyances leave us as quickly as water slides off the well oiled feathers of a duck
3) BIRDS OF A FEATHER FLOCK TOGETHER: most of the time time. even in winter when large gatherings of flocks of ducks and geese are visible most stay in groups of their own species.
4) EAGLE-EYED: self explanatory
5) EATS LIKE A BIRD: if you did you would be very obese since most birds consume up to 20 percent of their body weight daily
6) HAPPY AS A LARK: refers to the birds exuberant song flight. larks have bad days
when troubles come home to roost gong them 7) SOME TO GROUSE ABOUT
8) MAD AS A LOON: loons aren't mad but their call sure sounds that way
9) SWAN SONG: a belief that the mute swan silent all its life gives out a single song just before it is about to die
10) WISE AS AN OWL: HOO are we to say they are not wise!

They called off the huge Winter Storm Warning late yesterday afternoon. The storm system veered south of us. Instead of a foot, we got about 4-5 inches. Mom is still waiting for Josh to shovel the driveway though. She just doesn't want to do it any more. We are hoping that this was the last major event of a dying winter. Mom called the center and told them she'd be there after the driveway is done.
On another note, Polly walked to the neighbor's house and back again today. She is nearly prancing, she's so happy to be on a walk again. Granted, it's not a long one, but at least she's out with Daisy and feeling like she's part of the pack again.
Mom baked some birdie bread yesterday, then made cookies. She delivered some today to Jeff, and will try to give Josh some when he comes to clear the driveway. Hope he wants some because there are a lot of them. They are white chocolate chip and walnut cookies.
I hope you are staying warm and dry today, and getting a lot of love. Hugs, Falco

No more snow for the rest of the week, but the bitter cold sub-zero Vortex wind chills will stick around for awhile longer it seems! It is Monday morning once again, let's jump in and see what it holds for us, after the Winter we all have had, nothing can surprise us anymore! The Pearl is getting more and more fun everyday, we are currently off to Midway Island, to replenish the ship's water supplies and stores!

2) Hawaii Kona Coffee

An Arabica coffee grown at about 2,000 feet above sea level on the fertile slopes of Mauna Loa and Hualalai Volcanoes on the Big Island of Hawaii, Kona coffee is known for its rich yet light and delicate taste with a complex aroma.

Well-balanced with a medium body, it is clean in the cup with a bright and cheerful acidity. Kona coffee often reveals buttery as well as spicy qualities and subtle winey tones with an excellent aromatic finish.
