  Hi, RT
Busy, busy at mom's work with lots of Easter and summer things being bought. Reminds mom she needs to make a lil basket for the grand. No candy as too young for that so guess some age appropriate snacks and toys.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

How are Squak & Jetta doing?
Today I went for a ride in the car with mom. I saw some sun and asked if we were going to Florida? She said no but we should be. Dad was using some smelly ant stuff in the basement so, we had to be gone most of the day.
Very sad news today for the Pitts-Hays Eagle parronts. The remaining egg cracked open but was not viable. Mom eagle is so sad and staying with the lost baby. I hope to see them again next year.
Hugs

  Hi ya RT~
I hope you are having a fun day! We are going to run the carpet cleaner again but that is about all we will be doing today. Mom is always wiped out after the first night back at work. She tries to keep normal hours when she is off and doesn't always get enough sleep the first day. She'll sleep good this afternoon! I am getting a new toy in the night cage since I have destroyed the last one, so I should be content!
I hope you have a really fun day!!

  Hi RT
Birds do a lot of activities that may seem smart, but how much of their behavior is instinct instead of intelligence? Ornithologists are continually studying birds and learning new information about their brains, how they think and why they behave why they do.

Deciding just how smart birds are depends on how intelligence is defined. Birds exhibit a wide range of intelligent behaviors, including good memories, extensive communication, planning for the future and remembering the past. Some birds can solve problems, and others have been observed playing – both activities that indicate more than just basic instinct. The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines intelligence as:The ability to learn or understand or to deal with new or trying situations or the ability to apply knowledge to manipulate one's environment.
Do birds do this? Scientific studies indicate that yes, birds do learn, and every backyard birder knows birds are capable of adapting to new environments and conditions. Quantitative measurement of bird intelligence is difficult because birds cannot take intelligence tests or attend classes to be measured with their peers. Observations and studies of birds are revealing that birds may be far more intelligent than initially believed.
Bird Brain Structure
Brain size and structure is not an automatic gauge of intelligence, but it can be a clue. Birds may be small, but they have a proportionally large brain compared to their overall body and head sizes – in fact, bird's brains are similarly proportioned to primates. Studies of birds' brain anatomy also suggests that while the structure is different than that of mammals' brains, birds may have a higher degree of connectivity between the sections of their brains, which could indicate more intelligence and faster reasoning than previously believed.
Evidence of Bird Intelligence
The best indication of how smart birds are is direct observations of birds acting intelligently. While some observations have been made under scientifically controlled circumstances and through laboratory experiments, other observations have come from casual birders who notice their favorite birds behaving in peculiar ways, ways that seem planned and premeditated.

We do missing seeing you every morning. However, we are also well aware of how much discomfort too much puter time could have on the hands/wrists. We'll see you whenever you are able.

Dad is looking into renting for a month next year in FL. This is a good step. The condos are long gone.

Today was an all day snow. This is a good day to hang out on the perch in my fuzzy robe and slippers. I hope we get early spring weather for us ... middle of April. Where is the sun???

I hope you are having a great day! Now you don't worry about getting over to blog!! I'll still be here everyday to leave a boring note about how nothing exciting is going on! If your dad needs help falling asleep, he can just read our note and it will put him right to sleep!hehehehehehe
It's beautiful here today but unfortunately mom goes back to work tonight and will probably be working until next Thursday. I don't understand why her store had to have these weekend ads. They are suppose to have a back up to take care of it but they don't. Mom has to do it since the other lady won't and mom will just end up being scheduled anyway.
I hope your day is just perfect!

  Hi RT
Bald Eagles are nesting on all three of Pittsburgh's major rivers! Who knew the day would never come when Pittsburghers would be cheering for the Eagles…Bald Eagles, that is!

It has probably been more than 250 years since Bald Eagles last nested along Pittsburgh’s three rivers. In the 18th century, suitable nesting habitat in the form of mature tall trees was stripped from the hillsides flanking the rivers to meet the lumber and fuel demands of a rapidly growing human population in the area; second, industrialization beginning in the 19th century led to extensive unregulated pollution of the rivers, which decimated fish populations that eagles feed on; third, beginning in the mid-20th century eagles (and many other birds) showed signs of succumbing to the unintended side effects of widespread use of the pesticide DDT (developed for use in World War II) which eventually caused chronic nesting failure for the species. As recently as the mid-1980s, there were just a few remaining nesting Bald Eagles pairs anywhere in Pennsylvania, all of these in the northwest corner of the state.
One nest, located on the Monongahela River in the community of Hays is the most famous because a web camas been set up to view the nest. millions of people are viewing the nesting activity. Last year this pair successfully raised three eagle babies. this year they only layed 2 eggs. one of the eggs had a crack in it and the mom tried to keep it together but when the dad eagle came to sit on the egg he saw the crack and threw the egg out of the nest. during a recent snowstorm the mom eagle was totally covered in snow while incubating the single egg
The Bald Eagle,has made a tremendous comeback throughout its range in the lower 48 states. Its recovery is due to enforcement of federal laws protecting it from persecution, the banning of DDT, which bio-accumulated in eagles and other piscivorous (fish-eating) birds, eventually causing complete reproductive failure through the thinning of their egg shells to the point that eggs simply broke when parent birds tried to incubate them; passage in the same year of the federal Clean Water Act, and, direct recovery measures taken by our Game Commission, which brought nestling Bald Eagles from healthy populations to hacking sitese when the state’s breeding population was down to just a few nesting pairs. Similar efforts by game agencies in surrounding states also have contributed to the rapid increase in the number of nesting Bald Eagles in Pennsylvania. By 2000, there were about 50 known nesting pairs of eagles in the state; as of 2012, more than 200 nesting locations are known for Bald Eagle in Pennsylvania, including nests in almost every county!
