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....

  Hi friends-from Ziggy & dad
...dad does in fact have an emergency Freedom Alert to wear around his neck, but he wanted to know that an ambulance would not be called, he will not go back to any hospital ever again, unless he is dying! There are 4 phone numbers programmed into it, and one is our across the street neighbor man! Dad talked to him early this morning when he came to take our trash around to the alley! He told dad not to worry! Dad was up early getting things ready for Ms LaLo, it is a labor of pure love, and he is looking forward to a visit with our dear friend aunt Denise! Very few notes today, but we wish you all a great Thursday and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

Very busy love from Jenny, LaLo, Christy, Ziggy, and dad

The next few days will be hot and muggy - I don't mind tropical, but Dad is used-to cold Buffalo,
so he suffers.

Hello, EveryBirdie!
Dad is home from his trip to Kentucky for Mothers Day. Very happy to see him.
--
I am very happy to report that I was a joy for my bird-sitter, Kathy,
and had fun with visits from Uncle Geno as well.
= = =
Dad had a nice visit with Grandma including great food, and visits to the Cincinnati Art Museum and Cincinnati Symphony [Where Award Winning pianist, Evgeny Kissin, played Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2].
Grandma kept telling him he needs to lose weight, but kept feeding him and offering him fattening foods - his Mom is sweet but silly.

It's great to be back on Bird Channel. Hope you're doing well.

  Flitzer, readying for Dad's trip
Happy Monday. Dad is packing and running around the house setting up "bird-care"stations.
He's nervous about leaving me w Aunt Kathy - they were both miserable to each other last time.
Dad will be gone 5 days, and is praying we all survive the duration.

Dad is visiting his Mom in Kentucky - and he'll be flying. He hates travel, hates flying, and hates being away from home.

Hello dear Ziggy & friends-

Dad's making preparations to leave on his short vacation. Of course it will not seem short for either of us.
-
Aunt Kathy, the Bird-Sitter, will be lookin in on me, and my dear Uncle Geno promises to visit as well, so they will help pass the time....but nothing's the same without Dad. It's gonna be tough.
I have Dad trained for when it's time for fruit, when it's time for seeds. . .
Dad keeps telling me to be nice - last time I was so sad and angry and everything else that I was miserable to the bird-sitter . . . .
= = =
Saturday was a nice day. Dad and Uncle Geno took a short drive into the country.
Today is rainy and Dad will be at the movies in the afternoon.

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.

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.

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

We sing together - although I don't know if the singing helps chase the flu bug away. Dad is so silly.

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.

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!
