  Hi Beenie
Hi everybirdie, Amando here with our current Rescue Mission update for Monday. Word has been that there are poachers at work close-by in the Jungle. They have located feeding grounds for Blue-Fronted Amazons. My frother Casey wants to have at them, as does many of the group but we have to plan this carefully. We don't want anyone hurt or worse. With Paoo safely aboard the shuttle, under the watchful eyes of our BC friends. It is time for some tactical planning.
``Wow that was fun," Jenny-Lynn has her wings full holding back a bunch of PO'ed parrots ready to do battle with the poacher. Taz, Puffin, Oz, and Flitzer are on standby, while Finny & his green Angels are doing overhead surveillance, with Chipper and P&S! The hardest one to hold back is Cappy Miller, he must be part Amazon. JL has vowed to wait for Amando and Sky's order to coordinate the attack, if necessary! A gnarly faced Jenny says in a Zon growl " I want one of these poachers for lunch!" Jenny reaches into her ruck sack and pulls out a banner that reads "NO MORE WILD PARROTS", and it brings a silent roar amongst all the brave rescue parrots, trying hard not to give their positions away...
Cappy is so disgusted with the poachers that he just wants a chance at them. He sits and sharpens his beak just in case he gets an opportunity to RIP some poacher flesh.He listens as Amando, Jenny-Lynn and Sky plan their attack.
" You and your team did a great job getting Paoo out of there. It was nerve wracking to say the least. Now what are we going to do about those POACHERS?? They're some evil, scary folks!" Finny says as he returns for a quick updating on their next course of action. He tells the group that "the poachers have moved their location further south-west and have set up traps by painting "a glue-like substance" onto the branches of the trees in a wild Mango grove. Chipper had gone in for a closer look and reported back that there are 7 poachers in the group, and that they were hoping to capture 200 Blue-fronts for their buyer."
Little Angel sits with Dixie holding baby Armando who happily wiggles and flaps his tiny wings. An angry glare crosses LA's eyes, "Let me at' em, I'll show them poachers a thing or two or three, maybe even four! Just let me at 'em."
"I say we make a air-bourne attack on these low-lifes. Teach them a lesson they won't soon forget." Kaji and Hulk say letting out low growls. "The Green Angels know where the traps are set and we won't land, except on those Poachers"
The debate gets pretty heavy but the general agreement is, " We group and attack. No bird flies alone, no BIRD, hear me, no bird, lands anywhere in those trees. What do ya say?" Jenny-Lynn asks
"LET"S DO IT!!!!!!!!!! everybirdie yells quietly in agreement.
So, here's the plan......

  Hi Beenie
Amando here today to update everybirdie on our current rescue mission. We were successful in freeing Paoo from his chains of imprisonment, but just as Paoo and his rescuers reach cover, the morning silence is erupted by the shrill screams of Taz, Puffin, Tango, Oz and Flitzer. The panicked alarm sends everybirdie flying and running for cover. Finnegan and the Green Angels fly in at top speed, adding their distress calls to the chaos. Landing silently next to Sky and Amando they tell what they saw as they checked out some activity towards the West. Jenny-Lynn leans close so as not to miss a single word as they convey their message.
"Chipper, Pearl and Silver flew towards the south west while Kacey, Kallie and I headed towards the north west." Finnegan takes a deep breath, " as we flew over head to regroup we saw them, The POACHERS!"
"They were setting traps in the jungle growth" Chipper says angrily, " they have nets and cages hidden in the under growth."
"How many are there?' Amando asks concern crossing his face
"maybe 6." Finnegan replies in disgust
"I'm sure the calls have gone out over the Amazon. They will not be successful today!" Jenny-Lynn says growling in outrage.
"They were waiting for Blue-Fronted Amazons to land at their feeding grounds. We intercepted them and they've left the area"
As quickly as it began, the air once more becomes silent, but the rescue group knows they now must hurry before anyone realizes that Paoo is missing and go in search of him. Angel and Pepper lead the way as they quietly lead Paoo to their Rescue Central and the shuttles. As they move along, others from the group join them, each lost in their own thoughts about the Poachers at work in the area. Pushing the brush aside, they arrive safely at their camp.
"we're here Paoo, this is our camp. In a few minutes all the birds will be back from their positions during the rescue mission, and we'll take off for Macapa' and the trip up the Amazon. You're going home my friend, you are going home!" Amando tells him, taking his wing to lead him onto the shuttle.
"Thank-you my friends. All I have dreamed of is being once more back home. They took my flight away, and blinded my eyes from seeing the world, but never did they take away my longing to once more be free, even if it is for only a short while. My flock will take care of me." Paoo smiled sadly as he spoke. "too many of my kind, of all our species have known my fate, and that of my dear Rosa. Until someone will stand up and say "NO MORE wild Parrots" this cruelty will go on. I pray you will share my story and make a difference."

  Hi Beenie
Hello friends, Amando here with our current rescue mission update. SHHHHH! we have to be very quiet, and make sure not to make a sound. Jenny-Lynn being well trained in organizing under-feathers missions for the Homeland Security organizes the rescue teams. Amando, Dixie, Peppino and Pookie hand out camo gear they'd brought from the BC. The birds hurriedly change and check that each one has everything they'll need to successfully complete their first mission; freeing Paoo.
Sugar kisses little Armando on the head as he peeps happily in l'il Angel's wings, " be good, we'll be back soon."
Silently the group moves out keeping to the cover wherever possible. Sky checks to be certain he has the bolt cutters needed to remove the chain from Paoo's leg shackle. Suddenly Finnegan and his Green Angels team land where Amando and Jenny's team are doing last second equipment checks. " All is clear between here and Belem, but we did see some human activity to the west. We're heading off there now. Keep Safe" Finnegan says as his group take silently to the air.
Quiet as mice, the teams take their positions. Spot and Cori fly to the trees next to the store where Paoo is held prisoner. Not a word or sound is exchanged as each bird begins their job. One mistake could mean disaster for the rescue teams and poor Paoo. Flitzer watches from the tree, taking in every movement in the city below. A dog wanders by oblivious to the scene about to unfold before him.
Jenny-Lynn, Amando and Sky creep slowly closer to where Paoo is chained. They can make out his still form from the distant cover. Kaji and Cappy head around to the opposite side and wait for the signal to move in. Taz lets out a short, high whistle, the signal all-is-clear, and from the distance it is echoed by Spot, then Gus, Cori, Kiddo and finally Sweetpepper.
"OK, coast is clear, let's move in, cut Paoo free and get him out of here." JL directs. BooBoo flies up to the roof of the store, taking her position to help lead the rescue team to where the others wait to help assist Paoo in getting safely to the shuttle. Amando leads the way, keeping to the shadows and low brush as they move in. Paoo lifts his head at the faint sound of BooBoo flying past. Unable to see, somehow within his heart knows that today he will finally be freed. Moving cautiously to the end of his branch he waits. Amando and Sky had promised him to return for him. " today I go home!"
Sky speaks softly to Paoo as the group reaches his side, " we're gonna cut the chain, and help you out of here. The shuttle is ready, but we have to be very quiet."
Jenny-Lynn looks at the chain in disgust. Cappy and Kaji help hold it so Sky can use the bolt-cutters to cut the link. Boo Boo watches for any signs of danger from the roof top. With great effort the chain is cut, and Kaji helps Paoo onto the ground. Taking him by each wing, Cappy and Kaji lead him towards the undergrowth where BonBon watches eggcitedly.

  Hi Beenie-
Happy TGIF my birdie pals, Amando here with today's continued Amazon Adventure update. We woke extremely early in the morning, prepared to make our rescue mission well before any humans would be up and about. With Jenny-Lynn leading the rescue party, we would free Paoo from his imprisonment and make a quick, safe escape to Macapa'. Before the humans would know what had taken place we would be many miles away.
(Before continuing further I must tell the reality of Paoo's life. Paoo lived 4 years in a totally dark prison, afraid to move beyond a few feet to eat and drink from his dirty bowls. He lived outdoors subject to the eliminates, no shade, no place to stay dry from the daily showers. Paoo never tried to escape, he was unable to see, so there he sat, until finally one day Miguel, the person who forced this prison of pain upon him rescued him. He was euthanized and finally reunited with his Rosa and flock at the Rainbow Bridge. Miguel grieves his past but fights harder then any of us to change the future, and protect the wild flocks. Everyday his life is in danger, because the poachers are not gone, the market for wild Parrots is alive, and those involved will kill men to continue it. Fly free Paoo my dear friend. Although the CITES act stopped the import of wild caught Parrots, the Parrots can and do daily enter the USA and Canada through Europe and overseas sources. Most of the "imported birds we buy are not bred in captivity-except those with closed metal bands. DO NOT buy imported birds--do YOUR part to stop this crime)" Miguel"
"OK, Taz, Spot, Gus, Cori, Sweetpepper and Kiddo, you six have to be our watch birds. Sugar, Cookie and Raffi you keep look out for any cars along the main road. SKY, you and Cappy come with Amando, Kaji and I. We're going to get Paoo and help him to escape to cover, Where Bonbon, Boo Boo, Pepper, Angel and Chyna, will assist Willie, Falco, Jesse, Pico and Hulk to bring him back here to Rescue Central. Dory you and Little Angel watch baby Armando and make sure he is fed and ready for a fast escape by shuttle once we bring Paoo back with us. If you can help load the shuttle Picabo, Elvis and Indy that will really help.
Jenny-Lynn stops to look at a map she has made of the area. "Puffin, Tango, Oz and Flitzer we need you to be on the alert for any signs of danger, sit in the trees out of sight. IF any human appears I need you to scream as loud as you can so we'll know that danger is lurking close by. Chipper, you, Finnegan,Kacey, Kallie and Pearl and Silver are fast, swift fliers. Your mission is to deliver information between all rescue party members. Move silently, so as not to bring any attention to our secret mission." Jenny-Lynn growls fiercely and " should I encounter any human resistance, we'll just........" she stopped not speaking the words that she knew Sky and Amando and the others already felt.
"Ok, let's say a prayer for our safety"

  Hi Beenie-
Hello my friends, Amando here in the Brazilian sunshine. After our conversation with Paoo, Sky and I return to rejoin the others at the shuttle landing site. We gathered together to discuss the frightening information that we had uncovered. The reality that this happens daily here in South America, Mexico, and around the planet was a wake-up call to some, and a sad reminder to others like myself of the freedom we lost. As I spoke of Paoo's prison his final words echoed loudly in my mind. " you must take Armando back home"
" I am not so certain it's a good plan to take Armando back to his parents, what if he too is trapped?" Falco questions worry on her pretty face. Jesse puts his wing around her protectively.
"I agree, it might be safer if we take him back to BC and let him live with us." Gus adds tickling the baby under his beak
Jenny-Lynn and Sugar hold Armando protectively, anger filling their hearts as they think of the pain Paoo and Rosa and others suffer at man's cruel hands. Cappy stands watch over Armando, his crest raised in aggressive protection. " We will not stand anyone to harm our little friend!"
"NO! Let us come across the poachers, any poachers, we'll teach them a lesson they will never forget" SKY Screams loudly, his eyes burning in outrage. " We have to help Paoo. He sits daily without shade, at the mercy of the rain or sun , exhaust fumes filling his lungs. We'll take him with us. We will help him, we will return him to his family." Sky screams, and it is echoed in the voices of all the BC friends.
Baby Armando chirps, unsure of what was going on, but sure it was something eggciting that lay ahead for them all. Dory takes the baby and holding him gently, feeds him his lunch. Armando grins happily, his crop full, as he cuddles close to her for extra protection. Dixie and Little Angel offer to watch Armando for a while so Dory and the others can begin to pack up the bags for the first leg of their trip into the Amazon. Lizzie and BB work with Chyna and the girls to make snacks for their cross country journey to Macapa' in the state of Para. From Para, they will start the trek along the Amazon River to find Armando's family.
Pará is the most populous state of the northern region with a population of over 7.5 million, being the ninth most populous state in Brazil. It is the second largest state of Brazil in area, with 1,2 million km², second only to Amazonas. Its most famous icons are the Amazon River and the Amazon Rainforest.
" Before dawn we will go for Paoo, then take the shuttle to Macapa'. We will be using long boats to navigate the Amazon River. JL we need you to organize a rescue mission. Finnegan I need you and Spot to fly ahead to scout out the route we will be taking once our shuttles land near the city. Check for any dangers, both wild animals and humans.

  Hi Beenie
Hello everybirdie, I must finish Paoo's story even though it brings much sadness and grief to us. Paoo was real, his story was shared with my Momma Deb by Miguel a former poacher who has since learned the truth and now fights daily to stop the illegal trade in wild-caught Parrots in South America and Mexico. I wish to thank him for showing us the reality of poaching of Parrots world-wide. Flew free my friend Paoo.
" The terror that filled her once beautiful eyes broke my heart, and spirit. I sat next to her as she slowly died a pain-filled death, screaming in agony. It is this faithfulness to one another that allows many Parrots of all species to be trapped in the wild. When one among a group is injured the others respond by coming to their aid. As I sat next to Rosa, watching her life fade IW as unaware of the danger soon to befall us. A net was sudden shot over the group of Macaws settled on the ground guarding their dying comrades. Some escaped the net as it hurled across the opening launched from special cannons. Many of us did not."
"When the net fell I tried to fly but the weight held me to the ground, I fought hard but became entangled in the webbing. Men came, Miguel came and grabbed each of us roughly. Some of my friends received injured or broken wings due tot heir rough handling and our struggle to get free. We were thrown into metal cages one upon another, cramped together so we could not move, or barely breath. The hot sun, no water and food made many of us sick and very weak. By the time we arrived at Miguel's home in the Amazon we were tired, scared and unable to put up a fight. We were left in these conditions for days. Finally one by one we were yanked out, our wings were pinioned( a practice were the end of the wing is cut off to prevent any future ability of flight). Some of my family fought the men, and they were dunked head first into pails of cold water again and again until they quieted down or died of fear. I was young and strong and fought and screamed in anger as they cut the ends of my wings off. I bit hard and tried to escape. Unable to fly I fell tot he ground and was easily captured. To stop my fighting I was held down as a red-hot needle was touched to my iris of each eye. The pain was unbelievable and somewhere during this abuse I passed out. When I awoke I was once more in the cramped cage, but my world had become filled with pain and darkness. "
" Miguel and the men took the remaining survivors from my flock to the market were we were sold for $60.00 to $200.00 US each. Many of us had died from abuse, fear, sickness, thirst and hunger. Other had infections in their open cuts were their wing tips had been chopped off, and some of us were forever blind due to our desire to once more fly free. My friends be careful of man. No matter what never stay in the open long, avoid common feeding grounds and please take the baby home."

  Hi Beenie-
Hello everybirdie, time to rise and shine. We will finish loading the shuttles and grab a quick breakfast before the sun rises over the BC castle. Then we are off to the warm, tropical Rain Forest of Brazil. We will land in Belem Brazil. From Belem, we shall begin our dangerous journey into the interior of the Amazon Rain Forest, following the Amazon River and the Orinoco Water Shed.
"I have spoken to a dear friend of mine, who once flew free in the Amazon. He was trapped and brought into Brazil’s $1billion illegal pet trade. It targets many highly desirable psittacids. Domestic and international demands for Brazil’s parrots is enormous. He warns us that according to a recent report by researchers David Pearson and Les Beletsky, domestic aviculture is an “iconic (activity) in all classes of Brazilian society”. Over 70 percent of wild-taken parrots are sold domestically, despite harsh laws that prohibit possession of wild-caught psittacids. The remainder are shipped to the USA, and Europe. We must be ever watchful, and careful least we too become part of this illegal trade in wild Parrots."
"Come and get it" BB calls between gulps of steaming hot coffee.
The boys yawn, and try to go back to sleep. They had spent the night taking turns feeding and caring for the baby Amazon. The baby is wide eyed and ready for breakfast as Kiddo opens one eye and looks down at the bundle of energy snuggles beneath him for warmth. " You sure don't sleep very long do you little one?"
After a quick hearty breakfast, the shuttles are loaded and with one final glance around the KB the Amazon adventurers and baby with his watchful foster Moms Dory, Sugar, Jenny-Lynn, Sweetie and Spot are belted in. With a final look around at BC and home, they head south-east towards their starting point in the resort city of Belem, on the Atlantic coast of Brazil. The flight is uneventful, and Baby sleeps quietly only waking long enough to eat and take a quick look out the windows at the clouds and blue skies around them. Landing carefully under the expert talons of Ms BB and Mr Sky, the shuttles touch down outside the city in a secluded location, where it will be safe for them to exit the shuttles and get their bearings. Having left the cold and snow of Canada and many parts of the US behind, the sun and heat feels good after the long flight.
" Hulk, Kiddo, Sky, Picabo, Silver, Pearl and I will go scout out the area. Wait here till we return. Be care and keep an eye out of humans." Amando says, as the boys head off towards Belem. The others unload the backpacks, tents and gear they brought along, readying everything for the long trip up the Amazon River. After a short while the scouts return with word that "it should be safe to explore some today in Belem, but stick together, never be alone."

  Hi Beenie-
Hello fellow Adventurers, as promised today we will pick the baby's name. Due to the number of names I have made a separate list and posted it onto my page--PLEASE pick one name and let me know your choice--they are all greyt. Remember the baby is a BOY.
Rushing into the food tent, everybirdie places their food on the counter, as Sky and BB get busy cleaning and blending them through the food Processor. "WAIT SKY, not the Blackberry, it's not a fruit it's an ipod." Hulk yells as Sky prepares to drop the blackberry into the mixture.
Spot finishes feeding the baby by regurgitating food into his hungry mouth. "There, all full" he hands the baby back to Sugar who makes a disgusted face and tries not to gag.
"SPOT, you really know what you're doing" Parker says looking sorta nauseated
"THAT was so, owwwww, yuck!" BooBoo says holding her beetle in her beak. "GROSS!" she says, tossing her head back sending the beetle into the air. It falls straight into her beak. "YUMMY! Now that's how I like my food. Fresh, squirmy and crunchy"
"Now, that's GROSS!" Jenny-Lynn says, turning her attention back to the sleepy eyed baby in Sugar's wings. "Finnegan, how'd you like to take a turn watching baby for a while so we Zon Girls can get something for supper?"
Finnegan takes the little fluffy baby gently into his wings, looking at him with soft, wide eyes. "We'll get you home, don't worry little fellow"
The moment is broken by BB's loud yell, "SKY! What are you eating?"
Sky turns red, a large ladle in one wing, his beak full, " NUFFIN"
"Did you eat the baby's supper?" She eyes him and the half empty pot of blended food.
"I just tried a little, you know to be sure it tasted right without the pickles in it" Sky replies
BB shakes her head, taking the pot and ladle away from Sky. "We put this into small jars for our trip, unless you want to feed him?" she says with a shiver.
"We'll take turns BB, we're all pretty good at feeding fingers, hands and toys, so we can all take a turn feeding baby." Kiddo says proudly, smiling at the little sleeping chick, "it'll be good experience for us"
With the baby soundly sleeping in Finnegan's wings, the hungry birds fill up their plates from some of Lizzie and BB's fine cooking at the food tent. With full bellies, they set about fueling the shuttles, packing provisions, and building a bed for baby to sleep in during their long trip up the Amazon River.
"Jenny-Lynn, you really think we'll be able to find the baby's parents in all that Rain Forest?" Sweetie asks as she packs her favorite toy and some extra pellet and Finnegan's bag of Kaytee handfeeding formula into her backpack
"We'll find them. We're Zon's we don't give up, we don't back down and we don't ever break our promise to a baby" Jenny-Lynn says with deep conviction.
"Let's get some sleep and we'll leave at dawn. We need to take turns feeding baby every two hours or whenever his crop is empty, whose first?" Amando asks

  Hi Beenie--I am running for Bird of the Month
Hello everybirdie, Amando here with our third day's Adventure update. I want to say the names you are coming up with are great. I will post them in Sunday's blog and everybirdie can vote on their favorite choice. The name with the most votes on Monday will be our new name for the Baby Amazon. Talking about baby's I sure hope we can find his Momma soon, he's starting to get pretty hungry.
"Chirp, chirp, CHIRP!!!!!!!!!" the baby cries as he stares at Jenny-Lynn and Sugar who are snuggling him close to help keep him warm. "CHIRP!!!!!"
"He's hungry, what are we suppose to feed him?' Sweetie asks Kaji who is watching from a safe distance. "Do you think Lizzie might cook something for him?"
"I don't think babies eat food like that, he needs special baby food, mushed up bugs, and worms and spiders" BooBoo says, hurrying to bring the baby a nice plump beetle she just caught.
"Boo Boo, stop, baby birds don't eat that stuff, not baby Parrots anyways!" Cori grabs her fister by the wing to slow her down
"That's correct, a baby Amazon needs high protein foods, warm, partially digested and fresh. Fruit, leaves, bugs and other foods the parents find when foraging. Being how young he is, he needs fed every hour or so, from sun-up to sun-set" Jenny-Lynn explains
"Ok, spread out everybirdie, look for fruit, veggies, leaves, and other healthy foods, seeds and nuts especially" Amando directs, as he rushes off in search of dinner for the little hungry fluff ball.
" I have a couple pickles" Sky says loudly, he'll love them!"
"SKY!"" BB frowns at Sky making him turn red, " babies don't eat pickles, and besides what are you doing with those pickles?"
"Look I see a walnut tree" Sky points and tries to get away as fast as he can, but BB follows him telling him all the dangers of too many pickles all the way there.

" It's ok baby, I'll take care of you" Jenny-Lynn tickles the baby under the chin, " we'll get you back to your Momma safe and sound."
"Just wait until I get my beak on those poachers, they'll regret stealing baby Parrots" Sugar adds, an angry glow in her eyes that only Amazons have.
"Let me at 'em, I'll show them a thing or two" BonBon yells in her highest Budgie voice. Spot holds his fister back as she gets worked up over someone stealing baby Birds from their nest holes.
" Look what we found!" Amando says happily as the group of foragers return to join Sugar and JL with their treasures." We have walnuts, chestnuts, oats, wheat, apples, a pear and someone found this, a Blackberry.
" Let's go to the Kissing Booth food tent and get our little friend fed, then we'll get ready to start our trip to Brazil" Amando says eggcitedly.
