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 Mr Ziggy-Chyna dear I am trying to be a good YCM

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...

13 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....

Hey Zig.

Dad leaves on his trip early early Thursday May 5th.
He'll be returning late on the 9th.

Although it SOUNDS like a short time, it will be an eternity for both of us.

Hello, Ziggy. cool morning in Buffalo.
--
Dad busy cleaning, moving things, and getting things changed so men can measure front windows for much-needed replacement. The windows don't open and it gets oppressively hot here in the Summertimes.
--
Those Quadruple-Berry Muffins were wonderful the other day. Dad knows how to make me happy from beak to tail.
= = =
I was very good for Aunt Maria on grooming day. I did flit across the room for a moment and landed in a plant [yeah - they laughed at me], but after that, I was still and patient for the grooming.

Make it a wonderful day

"There's Nothin' in the Bowl, Dad"
........................
Dad says that bowl was for mixing our Quadruple-Berry Muffins. We love those!
~~~~~~~
Hope you had a great weekend. Nice here -Dad was busy in and out, but we got some time together. Cool mornings but warm afternoons here. Dad never knows which jacket to grab.

= = =
Today I'm visiting Aunt Maria for my "Day of Beauty" aka wings and claws day.
Dad holds me without the towel [hate the towel], so it's not so bad.

Hello.
A nice week here in Buffalo - warmer, with a little rain. Now it's going to be cooler, but not too bad.
--
Dad is making preparations for his May trip to see Grandma in Kentucky. He will be there for Mother's Day and on Derby Day as well. [I'm suggesting a flowered hat, but he doesn't like the idea].
When Grandma calls on Sunday I call to her, sometimes making their conversation hard to hear.
"I'm here, Grandma, it's me, Flitzer". She often wonders how Dad can live with me. Ha-Ha.
--
Aunt Kathy, the bird-sitter will be checking in on me, while Dad is away.
Last time, we were both miserable to each other. Dad is asking me to PLEASE TRY and be good. We shall see...

Hi. A perfectly wonderful weekend here in Buffalo.
Dad took me outside in the Travel Cage both Saturday and Sunday.
It was great seeing the outdoors and feeling the sun. We took a walk and visited friends in the neighborhood.
- - -
The Spring Milonga was fun, but Dad had to step away before the end, that's why I seemed silent for a while.

  Happy Saturday from Flitzer's Dad
Greetings Ziggy and Family!


Flitzer's Dad here with the tale [tale] of an (almost) lost bird
- - - - - - - - - - -
The house got quiet - and I couldn't locate Flitzer. I looked everywhere, calling his name.
No sound. No response
--
I know he had been in the video cabinet - as my DVD Sleeve for "THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA" was shredded all over the place.

He did not make any sounds when I called, nor when I rattled the DVDS.

After searching the rest of the house - I started taking out DVDs from the cabinet. For sure he was hiding back there. Keeping perfectly still.

Thank Goodness he's OK - Sometimes it's tough being a Dad!

  Please do not worry about me-from Mr Ziggy
...I am in a much happier place with all ladies! It took dad 3 and a half years to figure I hated men, sorry dad! My daddy is continuing to work on his strength and walking, but he is still very wobbly, and still can not stand up for any length of time! He misses LaLo and I very much, they could always provide a spark of entertainment and love when needed the most! Have a great day my dear BC friends and give our undying love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

Forever love on TGIF day, Jenny, Ms LaLo, Angel Christy, & daddy

Happy Sunday.

Dad is on the mend, feeling stronger every day. I'm giving him plenty of love and attention.
We sing together - although I don't know if the singing helps chase the flu bug away. Dad is so silly.

Hopefully our last cold Buffalo weekend for a while - looking forward [hopefully] to real Spring...

Greetings from Flitzer and Dad.

Love from Buffalo, New York.
We had a warm, sunny Easter weekend - is was so pretty and wonderful
Sadly we're back to cold rain, high winds and threats of ice and snow.
-
Dad and Uncle Geno saw a great movie the other day: "REMEMBER" (Dir Atom Egoyan) STarring Christopher Plummer. We read disappointing reviews, but we thought the film was Excellent.
Being a "smaller" film, I'm sure it won't stick around very long. We highly recommend it.
-
Tonight, friends are going to the local Art House Cinema to see a new Restoration
of Akira Kurosawa's film "RAN" from 1985. A great event!

Dad was wondering if ever other birdie does "Banana-Time" the way I do:
1. Bananas MUST be hand-fed.
2. Between each bite, I go into my "banana-dance" and Dad MUST follow my moves and prepare to feed me my next bite of banana. [Repeat dancing, then next bite]
3. Dad finds this both fun and exasperating. I love banana-time!

I’m still Squawking and wishing everyone a Happy Day.

Hi, Ziggy -

Dad made the mistake of putting jelly beans in the candy dish.
Well, I had to go over and taste-test them all for quality
- even the ones of the same color.
Now some are half-eaten and all others at least have a beak-mark in them.
Job Well Done.

  Hi Sweet Mr Flitzer & daddy-from your Ziggy man
Well we survived a long lonely W/E, and like all the rest of you, we are starting a brand new week! We do not have a lot on our plate today, but we are prepping for our cleaning lady to come and tidy up our home! We do not have any snow in our forecast until later in the week, that is doable! We hope none of your snow sticks around very long, let's make room for the Crocus, Daffodils, and Hyacinths! Have a great Monday dear friends, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow...

Forever love from Jenny, Christy, Ms LaLo, Ziggy, & our daddy

PS~We got our batteries recharged yesterday, dad called aunt Eileen & Sugar bear...

  My dear Ms Chyna, I have a confession for you only
My dad has not wanted for me to tell about my hatred for him, he hates to admit failure, but after our last visit at obedience school, our love can never be! I will always be my daddy's Macaw, but we would rather no one else knew that! When dad saw me with the lady I am living with, he was sadly pleased, some things are meant to be, and some can never be, after 3 years, it is over for dad and I! Please continue to be my friend, you were the very best I had, and I shall continue to give you updates on my life, and maybe even come back home someday, I shall always be my daddy's bird! JUST LOVE ME, like I love you, and give my love to aunt Jane & Scoobers, you are forever on my mind...

Love forever, from Mr Ziggy
