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...

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....

  Flitzer Midweek
Tuesday evening Dad and Uncle Geno went to a special event at Parkside Candies.
The evening included 'Make Your Own Sundaes' at the ice cream counter and a tour of the candy factory. Much of the original equipment from 1927 is used to make all kinds of candies.
They even gave 20% discount on candies bought that evening.
A great time! [Cue 'Willy Wonka' music].
Fortunately Dad did NOT get turned into a giant blueberry!

Cappy asks if I'm back to normal now - yes, no more sore spot - I'm feeling great. Thank you.

HAPPY MONDAY, BC FREINDS
Rainy all day Saturday and Sunday this weekend.
- - -
Dad and his friend, Paul, went to see "A LITTLE CHAOS" with Kate Winslet and Alan Rickman.
Good simple story - good acting. Kinda fun on a rainy Saturday afternoon.

- - -
Uncle Geno was over on Sunday. He and Dad are up to Season 5 of "Mad Men". Dad hadn't seen it before, and they're doing a marathon together of the whole series.
Have a great day. ~Wings Up~

Happy Friday. A beautiful day here today - sadly it's supposed to be cold and heavy pouring rains all weekend.

--
Dad got the toilet fixed (silly flimsy workings never hold up very long) and all is well.
--
Dad and friends went to a local little theater last night to see a production of the musical "THE WILD PARTY". A fabulous show presented by a local theater group. They had front-row seats so it was like they were in the middle of the wild party itself. Dad behaved himself and didn't get up to sing and dance. A fun night at the theater.

Happy Saturday.

Dad and a friend went to a special late-night showing of a wonderful Indian film on Thursday:
"Pacher Panchalli" (1955, Dir; Satyajit Ray) . The film is the first of a trilogy
[The Apu Trilogy] and the world is celebrating the wonderful restoration of these films.
The movie showing started at 9:45 pm, which is normally Dad's bedtime. He says it was well-worth the effort to see this special movie.

Happy to hear your dad had a good check up. Now to get him to sleep ... then all will be well.
Wasn't a good day here. The tree crews came back and blocked our driveway and so the realtor couldn't come. They will be back tomorrow ... hope that will be it. Mom says this really did it for her ... doesn't want to live here anymore. They sure took down a ton of trees and it looks bad. It was over kill to trim out the power lines.
Today I got a ride in the new car ... to the vet! Now, I hear that I will go see the other vet tomorrow. This is NOT worth a car ride! I'd better get a treat!
We had a surprise rain today. But, it was still a decent day.

Happy Wednesday.

Oin Tuesday Dad was gone a good deal of the day, taking friends across town to the doctors.
Afterwards they all went to the pancake house for food.
--
In the afternoon, Dad joined a couple friends to see the film "LOVE AND MERCY" about Brian Wilson.
Bad rains for the drive and doctor visits, then bright sunshine when they were inside for the movie - isn't that the way they say it goes.
--
Dad and Uncle Geno were here in the evening, so I did get some time with both of them.

Hi, Friends
Saturday was the start of Dad's favorite weekend of the year -
The Allentown Art Festival -this was the 58th year for this huge outdoor festival of arts, crafts and food along the streets of the Allentown District in Buffalo, NY. Artists come from all over to be in this prestigious event.
Besides art, of course there is food, crowds, babies in strollers, dogs on leashes and the joy of Summer finally coming to the Buffalo area.

Nothing particular for birds, but the weekend gets Dad in good spirits, which is always nice.
Have a great day. ~Wings Up~

Oh, I have started the process with the new playstand:
This process has to be followed.
~~~
Step 1: Ignore it - this may go for a week

Step 2: Be Afraid of it - *Squawk* and fly away if I get near it.

Step 3: Test it out when Dad is not looking

Step 4: Love it

I got a new Playstand!

Dad came back from the Bird Fair with seeds, a couple small toys, a new bag of pellets and a wonderful grapevine Playstand.

Saturday night Dad went to dinner with friends [Uncle Geno & Uncle JJ]. Afterwards they all came to my house and watched the movie "NOTES ON A SCANDAL" (2006) with Judi Dench and Cate Blanchett. Of course I watched it perched on Uncle Geno's shoulder.

We always worry about our dear friends. Keep in touch with us when you can. Oh yes, I remember those days when we would have 35 to 40 blogs. Now, it seems that we get 20 to 25 a night ... sometimes less. many of our friends have left the BC. Well, I'll be here until they close the door on us. FB is just not the same. But, if that is all we have, we will post pics on there. many times, we don't even see some posts!
We had a little sun today but, it was still chilly. Looks like rain on Sunday. But, the greyt news is American Pharoah won the Triple Crown today (winner of KY Derby, Preakness, Belmont)! Way to go AP, it's been a long 37 years waiting to see it happen.

  Thank you all dear friends, from King Zig
...I feel so honored by your presence on my pages! First of all, we want to thank all who took the time to come to King Ziggy's FB and BC pages, he don't get a lot of press these days! We also wish you all a Happy National Doughnut Day, that makes us think of Homer Simpson, and our heroes in Blue, and they are all heroes to us, where would we be without them! It was a hectic day for our poor old dad, he did all his running, and waited for his best friend Mike to come over and fix some issues with our old lawn mower, it works just fine for now! TGIF dear friends, and the neatest thing that happened was listening to aunt Eileen's pretty voice on the phone, she can lift our spirits without even trying! Give our love to all in your home, CYA tomorrow...

Forever love from King Ziggy & our Dallas family
