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 & my Spider~Happy Halloween friends...

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....

  It was not to bad of a day. We got our showers this morning . While we was drying mommwent out in the garage and bag up all the left over stuff from the garage sale and had brother take it to a donation center. Plus sphe has some dog items she going to donate to the animal shelter.

It was a little chilly here today but sunny. Dad had to put a new heater core in mom car so his day was not fun it took him almost all day.

Your fruit and veggie bowl sounds good maybe mom will make us one with things she has around here.I know we have grapes peaches apples carrots and broccoli she got them yesterday at the store I hep, her unpack the items. Not to much more going on here kicking your vote off BBF DITTO

  Hi
It's Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars!

My Dad and his friends took a road-trip to Rochester, NY on Thursday. One of their stops was a place called "Birds Unlimited". Though I'm not a fan of Dad admiring other birds - he did bring me home treats and the greatest new toy! ~Thanks, Dad~

Come visit me, Flitzer.

Pimer walks up still wearing his crown at a jaunty angle. Wanted to thank you for sharing my day at the castle. Sorry I haven't been by sooner but mom's been down with a bug. Makana and Oatie was all over her yesterday trying to find the bug so she'll get better, but they ended up biting at each other so much that she gave up trying to get a nap. Then today Sophie and I tried to find the bug. Ipo was checking her eye and ear to see if she saw anything, I was flying over and Sophie was checking everything else. We did let her take a nap before we started....even if it was only 5 or so minutes, but it was a nap. She still didn't appreciate our efforts. They never seem to be to happy do they? We try so hard too. hehehe
I better fly now since it's so late and mom said I couldn't stay long. Thanks again.

Come visit me, Shaggy--2010-2013, Ipo, Sidney ~~ALWAYS IN MY HEART~~6/1996-2/2013, Oatie Odette *Thank you for the honor 11/27/13, Sophie O'Too, Pimer--Thanks you all, Punkin *My Dearest Little One--5/23/03 to 9/16/13* & Makana *I am honored as BOTD 10-17-14* Thank You.

  HELLO FROM LITTLE LUCY
Hi Mr. Ziggy,
How nice of you to pay me a visit. Mommy says that your Daddy is really going to like that wonderful book, "The Parrot Who Owns Me". Too bad you can't read. Maybe your Daddy will read it to you.

My Daddy was in the hospital again this past week, but only for a couple of days this time. He came back home again on Friday afternoon. He'd better stay home this time. I'm getting really tired of him always flying off to that hospital. He must really like it there. Well, take care and sleep tight. It's my bedtime and hopefully yours, too. Lots of Love and Big Hugs from Little Princess Lucy♥

Come visit me, Mr. Finnegan, Daisy - R.I.P. - BOTW 9/17-9/23/07 & Miss Lucy Blue.

  Hi Jenny Lynn
It made our heart smile to see LaLo win botd too.Glad the wraps are helping your dad ...though time consuming at least they are helping so that is good.
Mom was getting some cleaning done in the back rooms and I kept whistling to her and she would whistle back to me so I knew she was back there. Then she told me she was going to meet her sister a little bit since any day now her sister will be leaving for Arizona for the winter. Moms BIL is working driving truck and has a job to finish up and not sure when it will be done. Once its done they will be leaving but just not sure yet when that is but know before it gets much colder and chance running into bad weather across country. “I love you to the moon and back my friend” Leaving a vote along with my note~~Your forever friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Come visit me, Gus --Chi chi ♥ RIP & Chi chi RIP my sweet girl..

Glad to hear that dad did pretty good at the appointment. He has to keep doing better.
I'm sure happy that mom is back! I kept giving her kisses and making my cute noises for her.

  Hi Ziggy!
Finally, I am getting by to thank you for honoring me as BOTD! Lotsa stuff going on here! I exchanged properties with Josh since he has this giant condo and I am now the gate keeper. This is an eggcellent trade because I will make sure that Josh doesn't peck dad's head when he is going in and out to grill. We pray for your sweet daddy every day, that he may be stronger and healed completely. Love and winghugs, Blue
