  Hi cutie !
Another choice from Tia !

PARROT TRAINING: A GUIDE TO TAMING & GENTLING YOUR AVIAN COMPANION by Bonnie Munro Diane is just what parrot owners need to bring up happy, well-behaved pet birds. Whether your parrot is a lordly macaw, a tiny budgie or any of the numerous species in between life can be beautiful when communication works. This guide discusses: 3 basic obedience skills; how an owner's behavior influences training results; working with babies & weanlings; training techniques for adult parrots & much more.

The author infuses light comedic prose into her writing. The comic illustrations are an absolute hoot! Tia's mom highly recommends this book!

  Hello Miss Caroline
Jan. 19
PROVIDENCE OF A SPARROW : LESSONS FROM A LIFE GONE TO THE BIRDS by Chris Chester is a story mom can relate to. As a teen, her mother rescued a sparrow in the yard and raised it. Bucky became a part of mom's family. In this memoir the author also rescues a sparrow and makes "B" a part of his family. This is the story of the joy and wonder of their relationship - charmingly written - touches the heart (at least mom's)

  Hi Caroline !
LIFE WITH BEN by Jessica Hagedorn is the story of the author as a young woman heading to college and all the stress and anxiety that brings. It wasn't the counseling or the meds that saved her though, it was Ben, a 'zon she met in a local pet store. Ben's original owner had died and Ben was in need of love as much as Jessica. This is the story of how they saved each other - don't you just love happy endings ?

You are the best ! Thanks for stopping by :) love Cookie

Today we're taking a picture book break ! Me and mom love picture books too ! This one is IF I NEVER FOREVER ENDEAVOR by Holly Meade. It's about a baby bird snuggled in the nest trying to decide whether to fledge or not. Adventure vs. anxiety . . . something all humans can relate to - plus the illustrations are wonderful !

Thanks for stopping by ! Many have asked about a cumulative book list - we'll certainly save the posts and find a spot for them . . .

Today is a little more serious. HOPE IS THE THING WITH FEATHERS by Christopher Cokinos tells the histories of 6 extinct North American birds. It is a fascinating personal story into the past. In the author's words, "The birds taught me that we can learn from these losses, take comfort in what remains and redefine hope . . . work to protect the still=astonishing nonhuman lives that have come to depend on us for patience and care."

Have a great day ! Love Cookie

Oh yes, mom & I are very close. I wouldn't let anyone touch me at my first home. I would only set up. Then I met my new forever parronts. Things have changed a lot. I have a good home, good food, I'm healthy after 7 months of illness and one surgery. Just try to take me from mom! I stick like glue to her.

  Hi Caroline!
I'm so glad your mom found you and you're in a safe place now! It takes some time but eventually you'll just love to be with your new parronts and trust them. I got placed in a lot of homes and didn't have much luck but then I found my parronts and I've been with them since 2004. I still have "my ways" but I let mom scritch my head and I've just started stepping up on fingers instead of my stick. I still don't let dad scritch me although I will ride on his shoulder and step up on his fingers. It just takes a long time! Squeaky has been with me for years too and she only just now is allowing mom to scritch her head! She has always enjoyed dancing and riding on mom's shoulder and she just started riding on dad's shoulder and giving him kisses.
Hopefully everything will work out with the vet and the owl. He is doing really well eating - quite the piggy!
We had a little rain last nite but the weather is very nice so we've been able to be outside. This weekend we should be outside on the porch with mom so that will be nice. We love being outside and watching dad work in the garden!
Sleep tight, sweetie!

This morning mom was busy prepping things for dinner tonight so she was in the kitchen a while. She told us she was going with her gal pals to chat and make a few cards together. They do this about once a month. She promised she would bring me scrap papers and she did too!! I wasn’t allowed to beak the cards but she showed them to me. “Someone once asked us, “how can you be friends with someone you have never met?” and we told them “you’ve never been on BC I bet” and that about sums it up my friend” V4U.

  hi caroline
once they get into the habit of plucking it is sooo hard to make them stop. my flock mate boo boo doesnt pluck but cuts off the ends of her feathers and just sort of mutilates so that they all look scraggly. when she is able to spend time outdoors in the summer she doesnt do this. mom is always afraid she might cut off a blood feather and bleed to death. she will also take any of my feathers that she finds and mutilate them also. mom has always had a suspicion that maybe its a vitamin deficiency but so far no luck in finding a cause so we have to assume it is just from boredom. love cori

  Hey Pretty Miss Caroline
Thanks for the information about where your name came from. Mom says she hasn't heard of it, but it's a very pretty name for a very pretty bird. Mom and dad aren't big tv watchers so they're not up on all the shows, eggscept maybe the older ones, older like them, heehee. Don't tell mom I said that, ok?
Mom is relaxing a little today. She has been watching all the wild birds at the outdoor feeders. She said it was bird central this morning and that makes her smile.
I've just been busy humming a lot... Maybe I'll sing opera!

Today's book review is WESLEY THE OWL by Stacey O'Brien, a biologist who specializes in wild animal behavior. She rescues a baby owl with an injured wing and over the next 19 years she studies and falls in love with Wesley. This is the story not only of their relationship, but all the author learned about owl behavior, intelligence and communication.

You are lucky to have a flock. They help you preen and can play birdie games. I'm an only bird. So, mom has to preen me and play with me. I spend a lot of time with her.
That's ok, I was at my first home all alone for a year with little attention. So, I'm happy here.

  HI Caroline!
Have your tried rice? That is great too. I made a big mess eating tonite. My beak was covered in seeds! Yea! What fun!
The police brought my parronts an injured owl yesterday. Mom thinks he's a Great Horned Owl. He had a broken wing. My parronts cared for him all nite and this morning they took him to their wildlife vet - she's our bird vet. She took him for an xray and his wing was broken in 6 places so she had to amputate his wing. He is doing great and eating live mice at her house. She breeds snakes so she has lots of mice. My parronts will visit him on Monday but he will go to live with some other owls that a person cares for in the city if possible. The vet has to call the government, like our fish and wildlife people, to see what they want her to do as it is illegal to have a wild owl here. He can't go back in the wild though. He is a beautiful bird and my parronts were so happy to be able to share a little time with such a special bird and get to hold and pet him. He was very calm and didn't try to hurt anyone even though he must have been in great pain. And such lovely eyes....
Well, that's our eggscitement! Have a fun weekend!
Hugs, Scion
P.S. Tell your mom to start with a little rub on the beak at first and then after a few weeks, maybe you'll let her move her finger up on your forehead area and eventually you'll get a head scritch. That worked for my fister Squeaky who hates fingers but now loves a good head scritch for an hour or so.

Thanks for stopping by on my hatchday! I had an awesome day.
Mom doesn't really know when my hatchday is because she got me at a bird fair, but my leg band says January so she picked a random date.

She even forgot we were celebrating today until she saw all the blogs saying happy hatchday. :P That's my Mom for you.

Thanks for the compliment - mom says she's kind of partial to my name too. Because Athena was the goddess of military victory, she thought it fitting for a military macaw, and that's moi. Mom says she doesn't know what show your name came from but she does really like it. Pretty name for a pretty bird. We got rain today and probably tomorrow too. We don't mind and mom says she likes it, even if she has to be out in it. Big birdie hugs and a v4u!

This cozy corner is purple but my favorite color is hot pink LOL. Its a funny story but fids on BC know I have hot pink tools I have helped build things with. Mom didn’t get much of the envelopes made today. She was stamping on some cards she had made before and didn’t finish them. Don’t think she is going to get any crocheting done either today. Guess you might say she is taking a few steps forward and then more back today LOL. “Laughter is an instant vacation.” V4U. Your forever friend, Chi chi.
