After mom and dad got Tango, my Citron-Crested Cockatoo sister, they wanted another parrot so they came to look at Marc Marrone's birds again. I cried and wailed and stepped over the other greys to get them to see me. That was it. They were sold. I had them.
I could barely walk and had very few feathers. I had to come home in an aquarium tank and mom and dad hand-fed me for a few weeks.

Next came Bumbles,a Rose-Breasted Cockatoo, who was rescued from a man who couldn't bring Bumbles with him to his new condo in Florida. You can see pictures of him below, with me. He now lives with Dad. I miss him a lot but he is happy and I get to see him sometimes.

Mom strongly encourages people to get a rescue bird. So many abandoned birds need a home with someone who will give them tons of love and care. And they have so much to give in return!

Hi! My name is Kahlua -- Thank you everyone for BOTD on 7-17-14

I am an African Grey from Wappingers Falls, NY.

Lu, Lu-Lu Bird, Louie, Grey-Grey (she gave herself), Beautiful

9 years old   F

African Grey

Sun Seed Sesame Rounds (but only the peanut ones and only the peanut inside), anything mom eats (although I don't get everything I want), Chex cereal, cashews, pine nuts, almonds, and walnuts. I like apples and grapes and blueberries too. I try to drink the juice out of the grapes! I would eat candy, like jelly beans or Skittles if only mom would let me. I don't understand why I can't have those things!

I love to sit on the chair or a pillow next to mom, on her knee when she reads, under a blanket when I'm tired, my green curvy perch, and on mom's laptop while she works. Of course I like to be in the highest place I can be. I love rope swings too and spiral hanging ropes but our apartment ceiling where we live now doesn't hold any type of hook. The ceiling just crumbles and the rope falls down. :-(

I hate loud or unfamiliar noises and I try to hide under the table, bed, or even a pillow.

I shake my head if I don't like something -- a song, a noise, a TV show. I'll keep shaking until it stops.

I like to cuddle on mom's chest at a certain time of night and will intentionally try to disrupt any activity she's doing if it gets too late.

I hate to see myself on video shake my head to "no" to tell mom to turn it off.

Also I will not do stuff in front of the camera. I will stop whatever I'm doing. Mom has to hide the camera to get me on video.

I don't like the word "bye" or "good-bye". I refuse to say it or acknowledge it if someone says it to me. When mom goes out and I have to go to my cage, I go on one of my perches and I sulk. I won't play or do anything until mom comes back home.

I am not happy that mom and dad are not together anymore. Dad has my old friend, Bumbles, the Rose-Breasted Cockatoos you see in my photos, and the parakeets. Bumbles was my partner in crime. He was adopted by mom and dad and he got in lots of trouble all the time. He used to teach me all these bad habits!


Mom acts silly and sings and dances with me.
She buys me my favorite treats and cuddles with me on my own terms.

She teaches me cool words and phrases and songs.

She bought me fish to watch swim when she isn't home.

She laughs at me and let's
me watch my favorite TV shows.

She knows I don't like to be pet all the the time so she shakes my hand and gives me high-fives.

She lets me "help" her around the house. She tells me how much she loves me.


I love to bite my nails.

I shake my head from side to side before I eat a piece of food.

I want you to rub my head but then I pull away.

I have to be with mom all the time, but don't want to be pet. I just want to sit close. I also have to be with mom anywhere she goes in the house -- not because I don't want to be alone but because I want to know what's going on.

I know when mom is about to cry and I make the same crying noises too.

And I laugh and cry while watching TV shows before the audience even gets a chance to laugh.

I love Judge Judy and will do the intro song to Judge Judy at 4pm if mom doesn't have it on when she's home. Mom thinks I probably do it even when she isn't here!

I'll also do the PC Richards Jingle at 4PM because they used to sponsor the time and temperature message that came on right before Judge Judy. I do that jingle all the time too.

I used to do the Jeopardy jingle at exactly 7pm when mom used to watch that.

I like to "help" feed the fish mom got. If she doesn't feed them at the right time, I go to the end of the bed and bop my head "yes" and call to mom to remind her it's time.

I love to imitate the noise they use to bleep out bad words on TV programs.

I hate pooping in my cage. I will hold it in all night until I get up and out of my cage in the morning. During the day, I like to go in Tango's cage. Why mess up my cage?

Sometimes, when I see a picture of my old friend, Bumbles, or if he comes to see me, which is not often, I often start doing all those things I'm not supposed to do that Bumbles taught me.
.

I'm a cool grey! (I taught myself that phrase.).

  Hello Everybirdy!
We just wanted to post a quick note to thank all of you for making me BOTD on July 17th. That is my Grandpa's B-day. I got lucky because we had a small celebration that night and a slighter larger one today!

Thank you all for voting for me and for stopping by to congratulate me. It was a nice surprise and a very special day for me. Mom is getting around to helping me write back to each of you personally, but in the meantime I wanted to send a general message of thanks. Thanks again! Love you all!

Love and Grey wing hugs,

  Hi, Kahlua
Think most of us on BC have sent ourselves blogs that were meant for another. Know we have and also called birds by the wrong name or gender on occasion. Good thing when we fly to a page have to scroll past all previous blogs to send a new one.

It was so awesome to see you in the spotlight yesterday. Hmmm, that love boat pic of you and Pepper, is that the same Pepper that is our BOTM king? Know you and Tango had a blast at the Castle yesterday.

Another humid day for us, but since temps were only in the upper 70s wasn't bad. Mom took skinsis and lil one to get a few baby things since the greatgrandparronts (mom's parronts) gave skinsis some $$.

Have a greyt day, wing hugs, beak kisses and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

Congratulations on BOTD. So awesome to see you in the spotlight. Here's a vote in celebration. Have a wonderful day at the Castle with fellow Grey King Pepper.

Pearl & Silver can't help but giggle when they see that Kahlua sent their blog to herself! They assure her they've done that and sent blogs to one bird that was meant for another.

So glad that Tango was able to sit with your mom to watch TV once she got that thingy hidden and only two hours to convince the silly 'Too it was gone the next day?

Very tough to sit in a docs office waiting for an hour or more. Eggspecially if one isn't feeling well. Our mom always takes reading material, music and her knitting just to have choices in case of a long wait.

Wing hugs and beak kisses, Pearl and Silver. ♥

This morning when Mom tried to offer me some of that baby food, she told me I was suppose to eat it, and not play with it. I did manage to eat a little, but was more interested in the seeds. Even got a few veggies, and not so sure about them. She said they were good for me. I'll make up my mind what's good for me.

  Hi Kahlua !
Wow ! It sure turned nice out today after a yucky morning ! Although me and mom must admit, we like that it's only been raining at night !

Mom has been feeling lazy ! Yep ! She hasn't done much of anything the last day or so but read and hang out ! But later tonight, her niece (aka MY Laura - birdsitter !) is coming. Mom did some cleaning in her classroom this past June and before she tosses anything she wants to see if Laura can use any of it - she teaches at Westchester School for Special Children in Yonkers - and has no budget and being a new teacher, no supplies !

How is your mom's job hunt going ? We're still saying lots of prayers for her . . . although what she's doing by helping take care of g'pa is a really important job too . . . Mom and dad try to help out dad's parents whenever and however they can -

Is there a garden at g'pas ? We've got little baby tomatoes on our plants ! I love tomatoes so I can't wait ! Of course I'm not a picky eater - I love FOOD ! har har har - well, you be good, say hi to Tango and give hugs to mom !

love Cookie and mom

I'm doing better today. I was up kind of early looking for mom to come and give me a feeding. I started making a lot of hungry noise, and she finally came and got me. We had breakfast at the kitchen table. I guess I just needed a few bites of my baby formula to get me started for the day.

  Hi, Kahlua
This is eggactly what is so wonderful about BC. Can send out a general question or somebirdie will see a blog and has some helpful info to share.

Guess if Tango is scared to go near your mom with the hidden thingy means more mom time for you!

Oh, very irksome when a simple doc visit turns into hours while waiting. Know that delays happen but can't docs office call and say they are running behind and show up a tad later?

That is good for gpa that your mom was able to move in and help him since she is between jobs and housing. Hopefully she can find a writing job or something she can do mostly from home. We know you fids would love having her around more as well.

The wild birds that come to our yard are mostly dull colored wrens and finches. (Haven't heard too many piercing bird sounds here for you to imitate - did we hear a sigh of relief from your mom?)

We'll keep our wings crossed for gpa and your mom!

Have a great day, wing hugs, beak kisses and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

  Good Morning
Well, this sure is an interesting place, and I am adjusting to my new home very well. I'm use to being up early, but my new Mom is not a morning person. I started making a racket kind of early, cause I was hungry. I'm still on one feeding a day, and usually I get it a little earlier than. I didn't eat too much, but I like the idea of being fed by her. I really like to ride around on her shoulder, and see all kinds of new places in the house.

  Hi, Kahlua
Must be so frustrating to have docs that don't take one's ins. Or find one that isn't taking on new patients. Be interesting to see what the doc will say when your mom reports that the dose of the med isn't helping her any. Hopefully the doc won't wait too long to make an adjustment or try something else.

How scary to be without power, eggspecially when there is a storm outside. Oh, and your gpa is on oxygen? Another scary thing but so good that the 911 call brought help quickly. Weather patterns are similar around here. One area will have lots of rain and wind and another not far away will have things more mild.

Maybe we'll get on FB to read the story of Zack. It is always wonderful to hear of a reunion between lost pets and their hoomans.

Usually at work mom has too much to do but she does prioritize and gets other things done when she can. The store is gearing up for inventory so getting things prepped so hopefully all goes smoothly.

How awesome to have a cardinal couple in the yard. They are such striking looking birds and don't have any in CA. So special they chirp to your mom! (Is there a bird feeder? We don't have one but parronts put out our leftovers.)

We'll keep our wings crossed for your mom's test to go smoothly and that no birdie is scared of the monitor she has to wear. See that Ms BB's dad assures that it won't be visible but sometimes a fid just knows something is different.

I seen your blog to cookie.
My Dad has had two of the 24 hr Holter Monators & 2 of the 30 day Holter Monators. All the wires are under clothes so you wont see them.

The Drs have been up through Dads groin 3 times & into his heart to try & stop the Atrial Fibalation. He still has it but not as bad as it was. Drs have him on Sotalol 160 mg. 1/2 tablet twice a day.

  Hey buddy !
It's been dark and cloudy all day and we've been expecting the storms that the weather guessers have been talking about, but now the sun is just peeking out ! Jeepers, it couldn't do that earlier than 6:00 ? Looks like a couple icky days coming up - means mom will probably stay home with me !

Yesterday the parronts went to take care of the g'parronts' yard - I perssonally think they should bring me when they go, but while dad was mowing mom went on the great nutriberri hunt ! I was out ! All she could find were the huge big tubs ! She didn't find them - this could have been cause for revolt - luckily she and dad headed down to BirdJungle and got them today . . . whew ! That's how mom gets me into my cage at night for night-night time !

Mom is feeling a little lazy now and is thinking this might be a really good night for a sandwich supper . . . for dessert I happen to know there's either cherries or watermelon ! I know this cause I helped her put groceries away on Friday :)

What's up at your perch ? How's mom feeling ? Can the dr. give her anything to regulate her thyroid ? Give her my love ! Cookie

  Hi, Kahlua
Guess it is good to know eggactly what health issue your mom is dealing with and awful the doc isn't the best fit with her. Such a long time till Sept to see the other doc but probably a good sign that doc has such a full schedule. Just boggles the mind when a doc won't listen to when a patient tries to tell 'em a med isn't working or in your mom's case the dose isn't strong enough to help.

Good that she has the great heart doc and hopefully all is well in that area.

Hmmm, not sure who Zack is, but if he was lost and now back home that is wonderful. We know his family is undoubtedly overjoyed as never know when a lost pet will be found.

Being busy at work is okay, but even when not busy our mom can always find something that needs to be done. Inventory is coming up so lots of work prepping for that.

We will love to see and hear you in action. Mom thinks bird voices are the most precious sounds - even if can't always tell what is being said.

  Hi Kahlua and Tango and mom !
Boy is it hot ! We hope g'pa has a/c ! Mom holds off as long as she possibly can before turning it on - but always turns it on before she starts cooking. If she didn't, all we'd eat in the summer would be sandwiches !

Her hives are still bothering her - dr. says it could take up to six weeks before disappearing all together - benadryl and cold compresses . . . sigh. Good thing she has me to distract her from the itchies ! That's the best medicine you know . . . quaker therapy !

We have flowers on our tomatoes ! I'm keeping a close eye on them to make sure no wild critter eats them before we do ! I sit at the window and squawk at anyone who comes near my property ! And in my mind, if I can see it, it's MINE !

That's all the news here - what's up at your perch ? Be good to mom and help take care of g'pa. That's a very important job ! love Cookie

The family here doesn't always BBQ, but they didn't hear that it was a spare the air day (too much pollution and BBQing is banned on those days) so went ahead and got the grill going.

That is good your mom can clean for gpa. That kinda activity does make one tired.

  Hi Kahlua !
It was such a perfect day today I squawked till I got my bath tub and then soaked everything ! Mom included :) As I dried I sang and chatted with mom - she was drying everything in the vicinity ! har har har

Mom and dad went to Stormville to the flea market for a while this morning and even though they didn't find anything they had a good time. HGTV was there doing a show ! Cool huh ? Then they went to Fishkill to do the yard work but the grass didn't really need it yet so they came home early :)

Right down the street from us is a farm and garden shop. The owner has an m2 who likes to come to work on nice days with her daddy (the owner). He always asks about me and today sent mom home with about a dozen sugar snap peas for me ! Sweet . . .

How's mom's job hunt going ? Tell her I've got my wings crossed that something comes along soon ! love Cookie

  Hi, Kahlua
Sounds like your mom has a good plan to get you on that video. Hiding the camera in plain sight works if there's always cups and stuff on the table anyway. If things looked different you'd be suspicious and that would never do.

While viewing fireworks isn't the same as seeing it outdoors live it is still spectucular and less vibration and no smell either. We will be asleep, but hope you enjoy it with your mom.

Yes, gpa's parronts had a business on Cannery Row but he didn't want to take it over so it was sold when his widowed mom retired and since he couldn't find a job in that area when grown moved away. Just think mom could've lived down the street from the aquarium.

Since our mom prepped all the food it was a breeze to BBQ after she got home from work. We got some corn on the cob, so yummy! Hope your 4th was fun!

Have a great day, wing hugs, beak kisses and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  some holiday !
There have been so many thunderboomers the last couple days ! Mom and dad usually head to West Point for fireworks and the Army band, and even though it's supposed to stop by then, they'll stay home. They usually bring a blanket to sit on and the ground will be way too wet !

Instead we'll have another Cookie day ! I just got a brand new roll of calculator paper so I'm happy and busy :) Presently I'm unrolling it so there's enough to wrap not only around myself, but the bars on my playgym too ! Mom does have to run to the market for a couple things and just hopes it's not too crazy in there !

Mom and dad love the zoo ! It doesn't bother mom too much cause they really do their best to enrich the animals' environments and provide everything they need - not like in days of old . . . besides, unfortunately, zoos are some of the animals only chance at survival . . . In fact in August, mom and her niece plan on taking the little nephew for his first trip !

What are you two up to this holiday ? Anything special ? Whatever it is, have fun ! At least it's cooler ! Love Cookie and mom

Come visit me, Cookie - summertime, summertime . . ., BC Library Now Open & Fly with the angels my Sally.

  Hi, Kahlua, Hi, Tango
It must be so fun to listen to you making conversation with your words and sounds filling in as needed. Your mom needs to find a good hidden spot for the camera that is aimed where you perch often and just leave it on and see what is captured. With digital can always delete as necessary.

Know that furball's name will never be on the top ten names for dogs, heehee.

Aquariums are awesome to visit. Our mom's dad grew up near where the Monterey Bay Aquarium is located. They do a lot of study there to help marine life and habitat.

Heard that the sky will go black in the middle of the day with some of those storms. Be quite scary if daytime and know it should be light out. Those automatic night lights work well to give enough light to see by. Anything is better than total darkness. Dad also found some sorta motion detector light (battery operated) that if one walks by it turns on. Helpful if one is up in the middle of the night.

Have a Happy 4th of July, wing hugs, beak kisses and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.
