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....

  Flitzer Tuesday
Hello from Buffalo.
Sad to report the "Hot-n-Muggies" are back for the week.
The humidity is like a steambath, and the temps in the morning are what it should be in the heat of the day. Time for those fans and cool drinks again.
- - -
Dad and Uncle Geno went to see "THE END OF THE TOUR" with Jason Segel, which they liked.
It's not for all tastes, certainly, being a film of two humans talking. No parrots, no big action scenes... Still they enjoyed the movie.
- - -
Hope all is well in your happy home

A note of concern from Flitzer's Dad:

~ ~ ~ ~ ~
For some reason, Flitzer has never liked my best friend, J.J.
J.J. is not a great fan of birds, but he has tried to be friendly with Flitzer.
After a long long time, they both seemed more comfortable with each other and started getting along.
- - - -
J.J. has had a rough year this year, and hasn't visited here very often. When he was over this week, Flitzer made it clear that he was Not Happy JJ was here in his home. Flitzer made disapproving sounds, grumbles, flew over and pooped in inappropriate places, and later tried to hide.
- - - -
I was quite embarrassed with Flitzer's behavior. He's good for me and great to Uncle Geno, but he becomes a little brat when JJ is visiting.
- - - -
Any suggestions?
-Thank You-

  Feisty Flitzer Friday
Thanks, everyone, for helping me make my Bird-of-the-Day Celebration a wonderful day.

Dad, Uncle Geno and I had a fun day full of laughter and feisty fun.
--
Dad n Uncle Geno went to a special showing of Jean-Luc Goddard's "CONTEMPT" from 1963.
Dad enjoyed the visual style, but neither of them liked the film very much.
Guess you can't like 'em all.

Be good to your humans and have a wonderful day.

  All my love from Ziggy Man...
It is happy Throwback Thursday once again, and for those who asked, dad's nurse visit went remarkably well once again, all his numbers were as good as a young man! It was announced that this is the start of Ragweed season, beware asthma sufferers! We will leave the doors shut for our Jenny, she is one of you! Dad put a small beef roast in the crock pot, they always make our home smell so good, and there will be carrots and potatoes for us parrots! Have a great day and give our love to all in your home, see ya tomorrow...

Forever love from Ziggy, Jenny, & our Dallas family

PS~We got the sweetest phone call from aunt Tanya Stark last night, what a pleasure she is to talk to...

  Wednesday Flitzer Time
Happy Wednesday from Buffalo, NY.
We are so happy that it's much cooler and very comfortable here this week.
[it makes Dad a lot less grumpy].
--
I'm still having trouble landing due to my recent wing-clip. I fly ok
(flit), but Dad usually has to pick me up and bring me to my destination. Glad I don't hurt myself when I stumble.
--
Yesterday Dad helped Uncle Geno get his dog, Lucy, back to the vet to get her stitches removed.
Lucy is a white German Shepherd - quite a large dog.

Hope you have a wonderful day full of hugs n happy times.

  Saturday Flitzer the Birthday Bird
Hello dear friends.
Thank you So Much for all the HatchDay Wishes....it's great to be 7.
It was such a great day that I started doing my 'happy squawk' in the evening and wouldn't stop for a long time. Daddy laughed and laughed.
- - -
Dad gave me a happy day filled with treats and surprises. I even got Lemon Sherbet for a yummy birthday dessert.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Uncle Geno hosted another Marilyn Monroe Move Night on Thursday. They watched:
"The River of No Return" (1954) which was fun.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Dad and Uncle Geno went to the theater to see a German Film called "PHOENIX".
Dad called it his favorite film of the year so far. Sadly some of our friends have fear of subtitles - isn't that silly. Many miss out on such good films this way.

Thanks again for your gifts and wishes. ~Wings Up~

  Hi sweet Ms Chyna from your Ziggy
It was in the mid 50's when dad got up this AM, it actually felt chilly, but that is only because we are so used to high 80's and 90's, and suppressive humidity! When dad woke up, it felt like a three dog night, he had left our door open, BRRR! Dad called our sweet aunt Theresa last night, and she is doing well, Ms Puffin sure let her presence be known, dad loves the wonderful noises a Cockatoo makes, THEY DEMAND ATTENTION, LOL! Have a great day dear BC friends, there is no good reason not to! Give our love to all in your happy little home, see ya all tomorrow...

Forever love from Ziggy and our Dallas family

  Hi Ziggy
We are having the same temps up here as in Port Charlotte (SW FL). Good thing we are going to a more even temp place than the hot and flooded central FL. We like the ocean breezes, beaches and boat area.
you will have to grab your suit and fly down to enjoy the pool!

Happy Monday. Hot n muggy still for the next few days. We're looking forward to being out of this steambath.
= = =
Saturday Dad and Uncle Geno took me for grooming - wings, beak and claws. The woman was trying to even out my wings and took a little too much off and I can't fly well right now - Dad helps me get around as I tend to fall instead of landing well.
= = =
On Sunday Dad went to see the latest Woody Allen film "Irrational Man". Many are giving it negative reviews, but Dad liked it. He thinks a lot of the negativity is from people going into the movie expecting a typical Woody Allen comedy, when it's not. The film takes interesting paths.

Sunday evening Dad and Uncle Geno watched "Paul Blart: Mall Cop" which was very silly n fun.

  Saturday News from Flitzer
Thursday Dad and Uncle Geno went to The Erie County Fair - Dad's first time there in many years.
A nice sunny day, but not too hot. They got in and out before the big afternoon crowds.
--
Thursday night Dad and Uncle Geno went to see the movie "APOLLO 13" playing for $3.00 at the old Riviera Theater. Before the film they played the old Wurlitzer Organ -always fun.
The movie was fantastic. Dad had never seen it on the Big Screen before - wow.

- - -
Terrible Thunderstorms and hail last night - big storms scare me - and Dad doesn't think much of them either. Hope we have a clear evening tonight as Dad has an outdoor party.

  Wednesday Flitzer
Hi from Flitzer.
--
Dad spent most of Tuesday helping Uncle Geno with his White German Shepherd, "Lucy".
Lucy had a growth on her leg and needed surgery.
--
Lucy hates the vet and (being a big dog) can be hard to handle in these situations.
--
Although the surgery went well, Lucy had a hard time coming out of the anesthesia.
We got her in Geno's truck, but she wouldn't come out - even into her home or yard.
It took a long time of patience and attention - we finally got her (reluctantly) out of the truck.
--
Have a great day. ~Wings Up~

  Flitzer Sunday
Happy Sunday Squawky Friends.

Many of you have asked about "Goetta", which my Dad's Mom brings him each year:
--
Goetta is a meat-and-grain sausage or mush of German inspiration that is popular in the greater Cincinnati area. It is primarily composed of ground meat (pork, or pork and beef), pin-head oats and spices. Pronounced gétt-aa, ged-da or get-uh in Americanized pronunciation.
This dish probably originated with German settlers from the northwestern regions of Oldenburg, Hannover, and Westphalia who emigrated to the Cincinnati and Dayton area in the 19th century.
--
Goetta was originally a peasant dish, meant to stretch out servings of meat over several meals to conserve money.
--
Glier's Goetta, the largest commercial producer of goetta, produces more than 1,000,000 lb annually, around 99 percent of which is consumed locally in Greater Cincinnati.

Corn bread waffles with real Maple Syrup. Bacon,
Goetta [Grandma brought it special for Dad from Cincinnati]
