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~ I am hanging with my best pal Jenny Lynn

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....

  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

  Hi from Flitzer
Hi, Ziggy - thanks for your note. Yes, I love my name, it's rather unique. I do "Flit" here and there and everywhere.
Daddy named me after a beloved amusement park ride, "The Flitzer", which was like race cars on a roller-coaster track.

Have a wonderful day, Flitzer

  Hi Jenny Lynn and Flock
HAPPY TGIF DAY
we didn't get much of a storm the other day but temps has certainly dropped. today was no higher than 62. i know we will get some warm days here and there but hate the thought of cold weather coming.

since dad won't go anywhere he sent mom to the Olive Garden on wednesday night to bring home dinner. she got braised beef tips for both of them and lots of salad. after bringing it home and eating it mom and dad will now call the restaurant the Vomit Garden. they became so sick mom actually thought she was going to die. she spent the whole day yesterday in bed. today they are both fine.

love Cori and Boo Boo

From the THINGS YOU JUST HAVE TO KNOW File:

One week after a Maine teen and her dad caught a rare blue lobster near Portland, farther up the coast veteran lobsterman Joe Bates discovered what researchers consider a 1-in-100-million find: a white lobster.

"When the trap broke the water, it stuck right out. And I was really surprised and a little bit excited just to see it," Bates told New England Cable News. He caught it Aug. 30.

Then on Thursday a couple of miles to the northwest, lobsterman Bret Philbrick caught a second albino crustacean off the breakwater in Rockland.

A person is more likely to drown — 1-in-3.5-million odds — or get attacked by a shark — a 1-in-11.5-million possibility — than see an albino lobster, according to the Lobster Institute at the University of Maine in Orono and the folks who keep the International Shark Attack File at the Florida Museum of Natural History in Gainesville. No one has calculated the odds of finding two 1-in-100-million albinos in the same week.

AUG. 26: Blue lobster gets new home at Maine State Aquarium
AUG. 23: 14-year-old, dad nab 1-in-2M blue lobster

Under normal circumstances, both of these crystal lobsters would have been tossed back because they were too small to harvest. But the Maine Marine Patrol made exceptions and they were brought to Owl's Head Lobster Co., about 65 miles south of Bangor, where 45 boats haul in more than a million pounds of mostly brown or dark green specimens each year.

The two white lobsters are being housed in the same crate now, but one will get a new home at Maine State Aquarium in Boothbay Harbor and the other will go to Brooks Trap Mill in Thomaston, a marine supply store just east of Rockland that has a tank of other Maine sea life.

Although Bates has not won Mega Millions with its 1-in-259-million odds, he won the lobster lottery again Monday, catching a yellow specimen. Those odds? 1 in 30 million, according to the Lobster Institute.
