After mom and dad got Tango, my Citron-Crested Cockatoo sister, they wanted another parrot so they came Marc Marrone's place again. I cried and wailed and stepped over the other Greys to get them to notice me. That was it. They were sold. I knew I had them.
I could barely walk and had very few feathers except those soft fluffy down 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 for BOTD 07-23-2015!

I am a Congo African Grey from Poughkeepsie, NY.

Lu, Lu-Lu Bird, Louie, Grey-Grey (I gave myself that one), and Beautiful

10 years old   F

Congo African Grey

Sesame Rounds (but only the peanut, not the soy), 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 and blueberries! I would eat candy, like jelly beans or Skittles if only mom would let me. And I always know how to spot cheese. I now mom puts it on Cheeseburgers and even it it's hidden under the bun, Tango and I both know it's there so we tag team the burger. One of us flips the top off and then we both go after the cheese! I don't understand why I can't have some of 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 the place 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, blanket, 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 "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 words "bye" or "good-bye". I refuse to say them or acknowledge them if someone says them 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 Cockatoo you see in my photos, and the Budgies. We call them "The Littles". Bumbles was (and is) 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. She 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. I pick up my own as well. I decide which words, phrases, sentences, sounds, and noises I like.

Mom bought fish and I love to watch them swim when she isn't home -- and even when she is. But don't worry. I can't get to them.

She laughs at me and lets
me watch my favorite TV shows.

She knows I don't like my head rubbed all the the time so she shakes my hand and gives me high-fives. She also taught me lots of tricks that I LOVE to do!

She lets me "help" her around the house. She tells me how much she loves me -- all the time! I tell her, "I love you."


I love to bite my nails. I also like to bite on fabric. I don't eat it but just throw the little pieces all over the place.

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 cuddled or have my head rubbed all the time. I just want to sit close or have her nearby where I can see her. 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. Now that I'm getting older, I can tell if she's sad even if she doesn't cry and I make the crying noise at that time too.

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 Richard Jingle a lot -- especially at 4PM or at night because they used to sponsor that "Time and "Temperature" message that came on right before Judge Judy. I do that jingle if mom asks me to do it.

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 and does when he visits.
.

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

  Hello Kahlua~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's going to be a billion degrees here again!hahahahahaha One month of summer to go and hopefully my rain will come back!
Russell Wilson is going to be a Seahawk until 2019!!! I guess he knew how much this 12th bird wanted him to stay! He is going to get a gazillion dollars! Well close to that I think! Now we have to worry about whether or not they have the money to keep the other players! I'm sure they make a whole bunch of money on merchandise so I think they can afford it! The players jersey's are 100$ each and this state is filled with people wearing them!
Training camp opens today and Taima is there! I can't wait to see the pictures! I follow him on Facebook and love to see all his pictures. Wish I had a wing span like that!!!
Have a great day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love from Seahawk Sugar!

  Hello Kahlua~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!! I think it's hot just about everywhere now. I think we are going to break the record for the most days over 90 today. I guess they have been keeping the record for about 120 years.
Seahawks training camp starts tomorrow and Taima the hawk is coming over for a meet and greet! Wish we could get up there to see him but mom has to work the whole weekend. Everyone is very excited for football to start again. It seems rather dull around here without it!
We are finishing up laundry and getting things ready for mom to go back to work tonight. It's not much fun but I do have some new toys to keep me occupied!
I hope your day is just fabulous!! Stay cool and enjoy it!

  Hello Kahlua~
I hope you are having a fun day! I supervised the turtle tank cleaning and now I am sharing some oatmeal with mom. I have dried cranberries in mine and she has raisins in hers. I don't like raisins much.
The rest of our morning will be spent cleaning bathrooms and finishing up the laundry. Not very exciting but it has to be done. We finally got some rain back so I am enjoying that. Who knew I would end up missing rain???
I have my gifts for my elders and am going to drop them off at the Milonga page. I'll be there but will be silent cause mom will be sleeping!
Enjoy the day and I hope it's just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug just for you!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Kahlua~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's still cooler here and it feels wonderful. We are suppose to get some rain later too! It feels more like what the Northwest should feel like.
We are getting chores done today since mom did not do much this last week! It's catch up time and I have to say it's pretty boring. I want to come out of my play cage but mom has to take Jennifer to work so I have to wait until she gets back! I don't know why she doesn't trust me to be out when she is gone!hehehe
Mom tried calling dad this morning but he didn't pick up. He'll call back later. She needs to tell him that our rent is going up nearly $200. He is going to be pretty upset but everywhere in town is the same. Mom and Ian checked out all the places around here online and most are even higher. We are still going to be $50 below what new renters have to pay. They are talking about rent control in Seattle so every other city is kicking up the rents before that happens here. It's sad since they finally got the $15 minimum wage in Seattle and now everyone is going to have to pay more for rent. Things will never get better for people if they keep raising how much everything costs!
I hope your day is just perfect and that you get to do lots of fun stuff!

It's our weekend so mom took a nap when she got home this morning. I had my English Muffin in my night cage and played with a toys while she slept. She has had to go out a few times but she's home now and we are trying to figure out what to make for dinner. Anything with corn bread sounds good to me!

  Hello Kahlua~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!! Today is my 6th BC anniversary! 6 years ago mom and I went looking for pictures of Amazons and discovered the BC! They were having Camp Birdie and I joined! It's been a wonderful 6 year all because I have made so many awesome friends! Sure do miss Camp Birdie though! It was so much fun!
There was a fire on South Hill last night. It's about 4 miles from me. It was all brush but there was wind and they were afraid that the embers might catch some houses on fire. They were getting ready to evacuate but they got it under control. They are using bulldozers to plow it all under so they won't have to worry about flare ups. Mom could smell it at work be we can't smell it up here. I think the wind is blowing the other way so that saved me from the stink! I'm just glad no houses burned down and not one was hurt and that I didn't have to smell the stink!!
Enjoy the evening and I hope it's perfect!

  Hello Kahlua~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's been way cooler here the past few days and we even got some rain! I was missing it believe it or not!
Last week was so busy! I did not get much time on BC hence my absence from your page!
Dad was home for a few days last week. He was still working but it was all local deliveries and he got to come home in the evenings. There always seems to be too much running around when dad is home.
I have been molting so I have been a bit cranky lately. I bit mom a couple of times but there wasn't too much blood. She understands! I'm just cranky! I am still the cute, adorable, sweet Amazon the mom knows and loves!hehehehe
Back to school is in full swing at mom's store! The kids have only been out for 2 weeks so I doubt any of them are ready to look at back to school stuff yet! Mom says they do have really cute lunch kits and backpacks this year.
I hope all is well at your nest and that you will have a wonderful day!

  Hello Kahlua~
I hope you are having a great day! I hope your 4th was tons of fun! Ian told mom the fireworks went on here until midnight. At mom's work it went on until 4am! Ian told mom he went to check on me a few times and I fluttered! That means he woke me up!! It was nice of him to check up on me.
I am sorry I didn't get many notes out yesterday! Mom drove Jennifer down to her dads house. They decided to go to Olympia first because Half Price Books was having a half off sale. Ian said that made them Quarter Price Books!hahahahaha Anyway, you don't really want the Bad Mom in a bookstore because she will spend way too much time looking at the books while her adorable Sugar is home waiting for her! Merlin was locked up in the bedroom and I bet the Bad Mom forgot about that! The Bad Mom was gone for 3 hours! A trip down to Lacey (where Jennifer's dad lives) should only take 1 hour and 10 minutes! The Bad Mom bought 9 books and a reusable shopping bag for $4.17! Great bargain but the Bad Mom should have been home in 1 hour and 10 minutes!
Now mom tells me there is a Half Price Books in Tacoma and she wants to go check that store out! Tacoma is only 15 minutes away but after this fiasco I am not sure I can trust her to come right back!
It is still a billion degrees here and today it's suppose to be a billion and one! I think I have had enough summer now thank you! There are no fans or A/C left in any store around here! Guess everyone should have believed the Weather Channel when they said this was going to happen! Glad the Bad Mom did and got us extra fans! I'm staying cool!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's perfect!

  Hello Kahula~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!! It was about a billion degrees here yesterday!!! Okay, it was 98 but it felt like a billion! We are really big babies when it comes to anything over 80! Guess it's going to be like this for the next week or so. Mom got the portable A/C out and Ian and Jennifer spent the entire evening on the sofa watching a silly show on HULU about people racing around the world. It thought it was pretty boring and nothing was blowing up either!!
When mom and Ian came up here to look for a place to live, about 20 years ago, they were having a heat wave and mom thought they were all being too dramatic. They lived in Mojave at the time and it would be 122 by 10am! Now mom understands! The cool weather was a huge selling point when they were looking for a place to move to! Dad was already working up here at the time. Just like with the snow, the heat happens up here every few years.
Mom is going to drive Jennifer down to her dad's house tomorrow so I am going to wish you a safe and Happy 4th today in case we don't have time for notes tomorrow. Mom is working through the weekend but Ian is off so he'll be here to take care of me and Merlin. Neither of us are bothered by fireworks but mom would never leave us alone anyway.
The gardeners are here now and trimming all the bushes. I guess they wanted to get an early start so they don't have to be doing it when it gets to be a billion degrees again!hehehe
Have a fabulous day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Kahlua~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! I have had a nice day just hanging out with mom!
Well I have 5 new cousins! They are all canaries! Mom's sister took them in after their previous people decided to move to Eastern Washington and did not want to take them along. It's really not a very far move so I have no idea why they decided to let them go. There are 2 brown ones, a boy and a girl, and 3 yellow ones, 2 girls, 1 boy.
When mom's sister got them she saw that one of the little brown ones is sitting on a nest with 3 eggs! Guess that means I'll be having 3 more new cousins pretty soon. Mom's sister asked mom if she would like to have some canaries but mom doesn't know where we would put them and keep them safe from Merlin. Mom's sister has a second bedroom where the budgies and canaries live to keep them safe from her cat. I haven't seen a picture of them yet but I hope to soon.
We have had 8 days of temps over 85. We usually only have 10 for the entire year and it's only July 1st! Guess the weather channel was correct and it's going to be a hot summer here. I have been keeping cool by taking lots of showers. It helps with my molting too!
Enjoy the evening and I hope it is lots of fun!

  Hello Kahlua~
I hope you had a great day. We had a quiet kind of day. Mom had some running around to do and then we had to get dad ready to go back out on the road. Mom grabbed all his stuff and put it on the dining room table so he wouldn't forget anything.
Once again we would like to thank every bird for their kind notes! We hope we can get more birdsonal notes done soon.
Mom went by and got Mandy's paw print from the vet today. It's just beautiful. She is going to get a shadow box and put it in there. That should keep it safe.
Mom is doing some rearranging also. We are just trying to keep busy and find our new normal.
Merlin has decided to be my best friend now. None of us realized how much he would miss Mandy. He has been trying to sleep by my play cage but I got down to the bottom and tried to bite him! He gets locked in the bedroom when mom leaves the house because she doesn't trust him or me!hehehehe
I hope your evening is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Kahlua~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! As some of you know, we lost Mandy yesterday. It's been so hard not having her here. She wasn't there to get me out of my night cage and I had no one to share my toast with.
She was ready to go. Mom never understood that until yesterday. When mom got home Merlin was curled up next to her with his head on her shoulder. Mandy had quit eating on Sunday and when mom sat down next to her yesterday morning she knew it was time. It was very peaceful and the vets office were so kind. They did a paw print on a clay heart for us as a memorial.
We are working on a new normal around here. It's still seems so strange not to see her on her blanket in front of my play cage.
Thank you all for your kind notes. We appreciate it so very much.
Enjoy the day!

  Hello Kahlua~
Long time not chat! I hope your day was perfect! Yesterday I was not able to get on BC when mom had time to do my notes! She cleaned in the morning and said we could get notes done when she was done! Well, that turned out to be a bad idea!!!hahahahaha Not much else exciting going on around here lately!
We had rain this morning but it cleared up and turned out to be a very nice day. We even opened the window! Mom got a pizza for dinner and I had 2 pieces of crust!
Mandy has been moving around more the last 2 days and seems to enjoy hanging out in front of my cage. That's good news!
Tonight we are watching a movie and getting my notes done before I hit the night cage. It's our weekend and we are going to enjoy every minute of it!! We hope your mom is doing well. We love seeing the postings on Facebook! It is so nice of her to do that!
Enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Queen Boo Boo
stands in the royal courtyard with all her friends Chyna, Willie, Kacey, Pearl & Silver, Kaji & Lizzie,Finnegan, Alex ,Hulk, Raffi, Sam I Am, Sugar,Cookie,Chipper, Panther, Kiddo, Angel & Pepper,Zippy,Gus MikeyD,Sky,Flitzer,Stormy, Oki, Jenny Lynn, Peabody& Sherman, TiPaul,, Peanut, Rocket, BonBon, Laka & Pookie, Ms BB,Rudy, Picabo & Squeaky,Dixie,Blue & the Crew, Rocket, Dandy, Cheyenne, Cocnut, Chico, Poco & Pico, Kahlua & Tango,Cori, Piddy & Paddy, Stormy, Molly, Dino,Taz & Coconut surrounding her. they are waiting for the UPS truck to arrive with their package of bees. it is the perfect time to release the bees as the sun is slowly setting. Hulk screams i see the truck coming up the royal driveway. the UPS driver sees all the birds standing in the courtyard and fearing he is in the Alfred Hitchcock movie "THE BIRDS" birds, slams on the brakes and takes the package of bees and flings it as hard as he can at the huge crowd of birds standing there before hightailing it out of there at a high speed. Queen Boo Boo yells "OH No" and Cookie leaps into the air like super bird and catches the box of bees midair and gently places them on the ground. everybody gathers around the box and Queen Boo Boo makes a tiny hole in the box so she can see the bees. the bees aren't happy and they don't know what is going on but they aren't angry either.Queen Boo Boo hunts for the Queen Honey Bee to place her in the hive first. Willie says let me see and spots the tiny Bee wearing a tiny crown so he knows its the Queen Bee. Raffiremoves the middle trays on the super and Queen Boo Boo ever so gently picks the small Queen Bee up and places her in the middle of the hive. Pearl and Silver who are dressed in appropriate bee gear gently spray the little girl honey bees with sugar water to relax them before Sam I Am gently shakes them into the middle of the hive with their queen. Pearl & Silver then very gently start placing the removed trays back into the hive being careful not to hurt or crush any of the bees. Kaji & Lizzie seal up all the entrances to the hive until the bees become adjusted to their new home.this will also keep predators out of the hive until the bees are strong enough to defend it. in the meantime Queen Boo Boo needs volunteers to come and spray the bees with the syrup until they are strong enough to go find flowers. this has been quite exciting and amazingly nobody was stung even though some of them had been a little worried. they all listen to the happy buzz of the honey bees and know they will fit in perfectly at the royal birdy castle. Queen Boo Boo says and the best part is we will now have fresh organic honey.tonight we celebrate the royal guards dressed as bees standing at attention while Lizzie unfolds a outdoor table loaded with all kinds of honey candy,honey cookies, honey cake, honey wax to chew, honey for your tea or booze whatever you prefer, plus honey based skin creams. there also is a table set with the finest royal china.whatever you

Come visit me, Paddy Cake & Piddy Girl, CORI vote PANTHER 245623 & BOO BOO vote PANTHER 245623.
