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 Claus is coming to town-My 2nd Christmas!!

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 Hello
Happy Monday.

Sunday, Daddy got me in my travel cage and we went to visit friends.

I was very good not flying into Christmas decorations or breaking anything, staying mostly on my Dad's back and shoulders.
It is really great hearing people say how pretty I am.

  Hi Ziggy
Nice Christmas portrait! As you can see, I will sit with the hat but not wear it! The dog is dumb enough to put that outfit on, so we fids can sit back and laugh our tailfeathers off! I was very naughty yesterday, just screamed and screamed. Well, mom took my big honkin' blocks of wood toy out of my cage and said it has to be restrung. She could have at least replaced it with something in the meantime. I have become more mellow with the days...when mom comes home from work I come up to the bars of San Simeon here and ask "want some?" and allow her to scrich my head all the way down to my neck. Pretty good stuff and makes mom feel real good to be home. So I am tapping my foot waiting for my toy to come back home. Have to watch out for those little guys in the flock. They think they are real wise guys or something. My little fister Samantha Carter the Jenday came over and sat on my door,checking out my food bowls. What is it with conures and food? It's not as though we don't get fed enough here! I suppose I will have to address the tresspassing issue at the next Cage Owners Association meeting. Have a greyt sunday and love to your sweet daddy!

Thanks for your votes every day! I love hearing from you.
Today we are in Market Square, in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh. Every Christmas season it turns into a Holiday Marketplace, with booths set up for buying locally made crafts and artworks, food booths and tables for the people brave enough to sit outside and eat, a house for Santa to stay in and see the children, and even a stage where locals can perform music, theater, and dance. It's a fun place to visit during the holidays, and it sure brightens up the downtown area for everyone. It has become a destination for some, along with decorated store windows, and the replica of the Vatican nativity scene on Steel Plaza.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of love. Hugs, Peppino

Did you know how I got my name? "Flitzer" is German for "to streak or fly very fast". It's used for cars and planes.
My Dad loved a little roller-coaster called "The Flitzer" at Crystal Beach Amusement Park, and I am named for that coaster.

Thanks for your continuing votes! I love hearing from you every day, too.
Today we are taking some public transportation! Not your common bus, subway, or trolley, but the INCLINE! (Pittsburgh does have the trolleys, buses, and a little subway system as well.) For anyone not from around here, the inclines are a way to get from downtown to either Mount Washington or the South Side, depending on which one you take. The first 2 shots are the Duquesne Incline, which goes up from Station Square in town to Mount Washington, a neighborhood of Pittsburgh that offers spectacular views of the downtown area. The next 2 are the Monongahela (or Mon) incline, which goes to the slopes of the South Side of the city. Believe it or not, there used to be public steps every bit as steep as the inclines are, where steelworkers and glassworkers would climb from their jobs to their homes. Imagine going up a couple hundred steps after a long day in the mill!
The inclines were originally used for that same purpose, but today they are mostly a tourist attraction, although some folks still park up there and ride to town because parking is cheaper on the hills. If you are a senior citizen, you ride for free, the same as all the public transportation in the city.
I hope you are having a fun day today and getting some sun. It's cold and kind of snowy here. Hugs, Peppino

Thanks for your votes and visits daily! I love hearing from everybirdie.
Yesterday we did everything Heinz, today we are moving to Frick. He was one of those robber baron guys, but he gave back some to the city. Not like Andrew Carnegie, who gave back a ton, but still...
Henry Clay Frick gave Pittsburgh Frick Park, a beautiful space in the eastern part of the city with tennis courts, many playgrounds, walking trails, a nature center, a running track, an exercise track, a bowling green, as well as many picnic pavilions. In my pics today, the fifth and sixth ones are of Frick Art museum, right across from the bowling greens of the park. The Museum isn't part of the park, though. It's a small museum with many beautiful paintings. In a neighboring block is Clayton, a Frick city mansion. One of the pics is the garage. A friend of mom's is curator of the cars. The mansion itself is huge, the rooms are incredible, there is great woodwork inside. Right now it's decked out for the holidays. I don't know if you can see it, but one of the pics shows the staircase draped in greens. There are tours conducted there when people request them.
I hope you are still enjoying your tour of Pittsburgh. I'm having fun bringing to you all the great areas of the city. Hope also that you are having a great day! Hugs, Peppino

  Hi Ziggy
Thanks for stopping by again! I appreciate each blog and vote, and of course, all the hugs, too.
Today we're going to do everything Heinz! You may have noticed that Pittsburgh has some recurring names to things, Carnegie, Frick, Mellon, Heinz...
So the Heinz family built the Heinz plant on the North Side of the city, and they made 57 varieties of things, including Heinz Ketchup. (They also gave PA a great senator, John Heinz, who passed away at a young age.) Anyway, they have given a lot back to the city, so going from the last new pics (5&6) to the first they are 2 shots of Heinz Chapel. This is a nondenominational church located on the University of Pittsburgh campus, very close to the Cathedral of Learning (and the museum). One of mom's nieces got married there, it's a very popular place for weddings.
There are both exterior and interior views. The next 2 pics(3&4) are at Heinz field, the Great Hall. This is where the several Vince Lombardi trophies and super bowl rings, as well as lots of other Steeler memorabilia, are shown. It's like its own museum. The first 2 pics are the Heinz plant and the pickle pin!
When mom was young, Heinz plant tours were popular for kids. Her class toured the plant, and each kid was given a pickle pin at the end of the tour. They must have given out millions of pickle pins in their time here. Today the plant is owned by DelMonte, and lots of the stuff isn't made here any more, but the building still stands.
And we've seen Heinz Field and the Heinz History Museum already. So that's all things Heinz in our area! Thanks for reading, and hope you have a lovely day, and get lots of attention.
BTW, did you see the parrots singing carols on the new newsletter? They are really fun to watch. Hugs, Peppino

Today I posted one more pic of PennMac, the cheese counter! It is as popular as the meat counter, and always crowded.
Next, while we are in the Strip District, we have to visit the Heinz History Center. It's in the heart of the Strip District, and houses Pittsburgh history, including a trolley. They have traveling exhibits there, too. They are doing a Heinz exhibit right now though, featuring Heinz ketchup and pickles, haha. The first pic is one of an evaluation of antiques they do at the history center each August. From what the people bring in to be assessed, they film 10 to 12 episodes of Hidden Treasures, a TV show kind of like Antiques Roadshow, but with all Pittsburghers and their stuff. Some of it is quite valuable.
We probably should leave the Strip soon, so mom doesn't end up buying a lot of stuff. Some of the stores, like Wholey's fish market, are unique and wonderful to visit!
See you tomorrow with another installment of Pittsburgh stuff. Hope you are having a great day! Hugs, Peppino

Thank you for your daily visits and votes!
Today we are visiting another area of Pittsburgh which used to be little known, but now is pretty much known to any tourist who comes here. It's the Strip District. No, people don't strip to go there, it's a strip along the Allegheny River very close to town. It used to be a large warehouse district where greengrocers, butchers, and other merchants went early in the day (think 3AM) to get fresh supplies for their stores. The public could also go there and shop. In mom's family, they went in the fall to get whole pigs for sausages and crates of grapes for wine. Over time, as more of the public went there to shop for goods, it became specialized into ethnic shopping areas. There were stores like the Pennsylvania Macaroni company, catering to Italians, Stamboolis, catering to near eastern groups, Greek and Asian markets, etc. Today, the strip has become more genteel, so to speak. There are no longer hucksters in the streets, and lots of the big warehouses are now art galleries, bars, dance clubs, or broken into groups of smaller shops, like the Pittsburgh Public Market.
The oldest stores, like PennMac (Mom's favorite), Wholey's Fish market, and a few others are still up and thriving, but smaller markets, like the biscotti company are doing well too. They have even started sidewalk cafes in the strip for the summer trade. It retains some of its old flavor, though, which makes it still a great place to walk and shop.
Have a wonderful day, don't forget to give out kissies for those scritches. Hugs, Peppino

Today we are going back downtown to the Cultural District. It's a few blocks of theaters and art galleries in the heart of the city. The 4th and 5th pics in my gallery are mom's favorite site; that's Benedum Center, where mom goes to the opera! The Benedum also houses the Civic Light Opera and the musicals which come here from Broadway. The other shots are other theaters in the area. The first pic is Heinz Hall, where the Pittsburgh Symphony and the Pittsburgh Ballet Theater perform. Guess what they're doing right now? That's right, The Nutcracker! They also do 2 Messiah performances during December: One is a singalong where they seat you according to voice and only have soloists on stage; the other is the Mendelssohn choir with soloists performing. Mom likes them both, of course. Right up the block from the theaters is the High School for the Performing Arts, too, so the students are right in the thick of things.

We're staying at the aquarium today, because mom found pics of the penguins, a good one of the polar bear, and a SEA DRAGON, Yay! The aquarium takes up a couple of levels, the shark tank takes up all the levels, though. It goes from top to bottom of the aquarium, with sharks and other fish swimming in the whole thing. The penguins are out walking in our pic, the zoo people take them for a walk through the zoo at least every week. They live at the aquarium, though. They have one big corner enclosure where they can be on ice or in the water.
Do you love the sea dragon? Mom thinks they are really beautiful fish, and like sea horses, the male keeps the eggs safe in a pouch on his belly. They blend right in with the leaves on the plants and when you go to the aquarium, sometimes it takes awhile to spot them because they are so well camouflaged.
I hope you are having a good day today and I thank you for your ongoing support! Hugs, Peppino

Thanks for your daily votes, I love hearing from you each day and returning the favor.
Today we will look at the *PPG Aquarium. It's part of the zoo at Highland Park, but is newer. Mom was looking for pics of the neat sea dragons, but couldn't find any from PPG. Sea dragons are in the sea horse family, but are much more colorful, and they have a neat tank of them at the aquarium. There are mostly what you would expect there, fish, like sharks and things. They have piranhas, too. There is an outdoor part with PA freshwater fish in it, and the polar bears are there as well. They also have a breeding facility. So the aquarium is home to lots of marine and freshwater fish, jellyfish, a huge coral reef, and lots of other things that live underwater. One of mom's favorite parts is that you can walk underneath the polar bears' pool and if they are swimming, it looks really cool. They have a fisherman's village set up beneath the polar bear exhibit, with lots of artifacts, as well as lists of sustainable fish to eat, and those that are not sustainable. When you leave the aquarium, you can either head home or go to the children's zoo. Mom likes going through the whole place, though, so even though she's far too old to be a child, she heads for the children's zoo at the end of the aquarium.
Hope you are having a good day and that I'll see you again tomorrow. Hugs, Peppino
*PPG stands for Pittsburgh Plate Glass, the sponsor of the aquarium.
