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 King Ziggy~Thanks for your votes & this high honor

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....

  Hi Ziggy Boy
then our favorite one next Sunday in Orlando? WE just love sending mom and pops, cause he always brings something home for us. I guess you could say we have him well trained.

Happy Friday, Friends.
Things are finally cooling a bit in Buffalo. Going to be much more comfortable today.

Dad's Mom is in town for a few days. Dad is spending Saturday with her. I don't know if she'll be visiting here. She is not a big fan of birds, although we did get along alright on her last visit.

We got up to a sunny 95 degrees today! Still no time for the beach. Mom says when all the house stuff is done, we will relax. I'm looking forward to that! I'm so busy supervising, it's a tough job!

Hot Humid - Muggy-Muggy-Muggy Buffalo, NY
This whole week is going to be miserable.
No air-conditioning, and our upstairs apartment is an oven - even with 3 fans going....

Dad is away from home a lot this week helping his friend. His friend's Dad (98) is very ill and may pass soon. A sad time. Fortunately I get lotsa hugs and treats and fun time when Dad is around.

I hope LaLo is ok and this is just her regular check-up. I don't like check-ups at all!
Hmmm, maybe dad is busy and he will make the birdie bread soon.
I have about 7 more weeks to go to the new home.

Hello from feisty Flitzer

A nice Friday evening with Dad and Uncle Geno.

They did step out earlier to go to the movie: "SOUTHPAW" with Jake Gyllenhaal
(great performance, but predictable film) and then to their favorite place for Chinese Food.

Slightly cooler and more comfortable here in Buffalo, NY the past couple of days.
It should be nice the rest of the week.

Tuesday 4 of Dad's friends saw the movie "TRAINWRECK". Rude but funny.

Wednesday evening, a friend hosted a BluRay Night and 3 friends watched:
"RIFIFI" (1955 Directed by Jules Dassin) - the greatest heist film ever made.

  Thanks Chyna & Flitzer-from your Ziggy
...you wo are some of the few that come to my page these days, I genuinely appreciate the effort, I want to be loved also! We had a ton of bad weather and tornadoes in our area last night, and aunt Denise's town of Monmouth really got nailed! I just heard from her on iChat, they could see several twisters touching down all around them, but they made it through them unscathed, thank goodness! We always worry about all our friends in harm's way, and are always relieved to hear all is well! We have more storms and a weekend heat advisory to contend with, so I think dad is going to run to the store for our supplies soon, so we can relax over the weekend! Have a great Friday and give my love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

Eternal love from Ziggy & our Dallas family---BE SAFE & BE COOL

Happy Friday.

Thursday evening, Dad went with five friends to see a movie in the Tom Hanks Summer Movie Festival at the old Riviera Theater. The feature:
"A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN" (1992, Dir: Penny Marshall) . Dad had never seen it before.
The six of them enjoyed the movie, popcorn and a great evening together.

---
Polly mentioned something about being scared of a broom or mop. For some reason, I always shriek when Dad tries cleaning with a broom or mop. I don't know why - but they set off my Conure Alarm.

Have a great day.

Hello from Buffalo.
Tuesday was Rain Rain Rain. So glad I'm an inside-bird.
Wednesday promises to be still damp, but cooler - which will make Dad happy.

--
Dad and Uncle Geno went to see the movie "The Overnight" which was very rude and funny.
--
Today Dad runs errands and shopping for his friends who need his help. Dad's friend's Mom just moved into Assisted Living, and hopefully his Dad will join them soon - he is in Rehab from a bad fall. It's been a very stressful month for all of them.

  Saturday Flitzer Hello
Happy Saturday.
--
Nice in Buffalo this weekend, although next week will be hot n muggy again.
--

I had a bout of night terrors last night - and kept "flittering" off my perch.
Daddy tried to calm me down but at first I "flittered" out of his hands.
Finally he got me - took me into his room and calmed me down.
-
I rarely get these, but it's scary for Dad and I both when it happens.
-
This morning I am back to my feisty self.

Hope you are all having a great weekend.

  Hi Ziggy
Thanks for making me BOTD yesterday! I had a great day in the castle with King Jester, he's a lot of fun. I hope you got by for a piece of cake and some of Little Bit's root beer, it was sure a fun party.
Last night mom and her sis ate at El Campesino, and they shared a ceviche appetizer. Mom was shocked that her sister ate it when she tasted the jalapenos in it. Her sis doesn't usually like spicy food. Mom thinks the shrimp in there made up for the peppers, haha. The platter mom ordered had so much food on it, she brought home half of it to eat today.
Mom had the recovery room to do today at the center. She thought she would see the peregrine falcon again, but they moved him into the small flight aviary. If you missed the update on FB, it's a boy! His flights are growing in nicely, and they're still awaiting some of the bloodwork results. He's growing up nicely, it seems.
Meanwhile, mom cleaned and fed about 7 turtles, including a wood turtle, a red eared slider, and several box turtles. She also cleaned and fed a few pigeons and a hen turkey. Mom thought she'd get to the pool today, because the guessers said it would be gorgeous. Guess what? It's raining and now the weather says cloudy and rainy all day AGAIN! It's getting old, you know. We just can't seem to shake the rain.
I hope you are having a great day, getting some good weather, and of course, lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

Come visit me, Gizmo and Divo, mom loves you both, Willie, Peppino & Falco.

Cooler for a couple of days, but the heat and the muggies promise to return for most of next week.

on Tuesday Night Dad and Uncle Geno went to a Special Preview of the Robin Williams film,
"BOULEVARD". Afterwards they broadcast a Q & A with the director and a few cast members.
.
The film was a serious role {Dad prefers a serious Robin Williams]. A small film - sad, but well made. it will never be a big box-office hit, but it does show off Williams' talent.

Dad is excited about his upcoming 35th Year High School Reunion. - - Yes, my Dad is an Old Man. Hee-Hee. I'm around to keep him young.
