Mr Ziggy wasa carefully guarded secret at our QCPS bird rescues shelter, for 2 years! His previous mom had become unable to care for him properly, and was forced to give him up, but it was her wish that he didn't go yoyo just anybody, but a bird loving person! I had spoken several times for several months about Zig, and on February 16th at our bird club meeting, the Big Zig became a Dallas bird! I want to point out that he was not abused from cruelty, rather neglected somewhat by his loving previous owner, waiting to do the right thing for him, consequently some negligent abuse, but he has recovered, and is a very happy and well adjusted parrot! He prefers women to men, and he really loves his aunt Denise! I think he felt like a big shot hanging out with RaneBeau and Coach Reba today! He is truly one of those simple pleasures in life, and as he sits beside me every day, he brightens my world like you can't believe! He has been in my home for nearly 2 months, and I love him dearly, what is not to love...

Mr Ziggy, daddy Chuck, & the Dallas flock

Hi! My name is Ziggy~Happy Easter & thanks aunt Mary Haines

I am a Yellow-Collared Macaw from Rock Island, IL.

Zigmeister, Zig Zag, Z-man, and Zigster, so far! Now his BB knick name is Big Zig Hammer...he is the sweetest bird, I can not imagine why nobody wanted him...

12 years old   M

Yellow-Collared Macaw

Some fruit & veggies and a few unsalted peanuts in the shell, and his special Higgins parrot mix...

...on top of his cage, and back by his toy, he loves his toys and bells! This little guy has a big appetite, he wants to be like his new big buddy RaneBeau...

Any and all sudden movements, and not being covered at night night time

He is so patient and never yells at me for any reason! I get fresh food and water every single day, and sometimes a tidbit of human food, love that stuff...

Zigs will not step on your hand, but prefers a sleeved arm, and what a sweetheart, he is....

...pray a lot, and remember there is somebody for everybody, my Lord is a good and just Lord....

  Flitzer's Monday Musings
Sunday afternoon Dad had a friend over for BluRay Day. They watched Stanley kubrick's long, slow and magnificent film "BARRY LYNDON".
I got bored and played with a spoon and ate seeds. HA.

At "Intermission" [whatever that is] they had Pizza and Wings.

Cold in Buffalo with some unexpected snow showers Sunday morning. Hopefully Spring will struggle it's way back on the stage this week.

Dad put the Happy Hut back in my cage. He took it out when I was having my behavior problems a couple months ago. We're trying it back in - I was so happy to be sleeping in my wonderful hut.
Great to have it back, at least for now.

Dad is having a BluRay Cinema Day here. Friends don't own BluRay Players, so they're coming over to see a movie or two in his BluRay collection.

I'm sure I'll get some snacks from them today.

Dad and I watched the Diane Sawyer special with Julie Andrews about "THE SOUND OF MUSIC". It's hard to believe the film is 50 years old. My Dad has loved it his whole life.

Colder with rain and threats of snow -These warm sunny days were just a tease and we're not getting Spring yet here in the ol Buffalo.

Saturday Vote n Hug from King Flitzer.
We watched "Foxcatcher" last night - quite disappointing: Stupefyingly dull.

5 Oscar nominations? We're glad it didn't win any. We don't mind a slow film if it actually tells a good story - but this was simply boring.

  Friday with Flitzer
We are celebrating the 50th Anniversary of "THE SOUND OF MUSIC". Dad saw it when he was very little with his Dad, Sister and Friends.
Later, in the 70s he saw it again in the theater on a gigantic screen.

Although the film is still fun on the television, there is nothing like the majesty of the mountains and the music of the movie when seen BIG.
--
I know all the songs, and squawk along as well. [i think those nuns are funny]
HAPPY 50TH, "Sound of Music". We love you.

  Flitzer Thursday Squawks:
All the snow and ice that melted for two days is now refrozen. Sadly we are below freezing again today in Buffalo – and the world is slippery again.

Dad is gathering his friends to go out to dinner tonight. It is 'Restaurant Week' when local restaurants offer dining at a discount. Dad is that kinda guy -gathering friends for food and laughter.

Make it a Great Day. ~Wings Up~

Didn't see you today ... just busy?
Ahhh, it was another good day up here with sun and 43 degrees. I had my beach chair set up in front of the window and enjoyed fruity drinks with umbrellas in them. I hope this lasts until the snow melts.
