  Hi Peewee
Hello Everybird, Zeena here with the continuing article on the Ara Project. Today we will look at the Great Green Macaw ( Military or Buffon's). We will look at their distribution and what has pushed them to the point of extinction.

Once prevalent throughout the entire Caribbean, Great Green Macaw (Ara ambiguus) populations have declined alarmingly in recent years due to poaching and deforestation, in particular the cutting of Mountain Almond trees. BirdLife International states" that over the past 50 years global populations have been reduced by half." A census conducted in the Cordillera de Chongon Colonche and Esmeraldas Province in Ecuador in 2010 found only 8 birds, with the current population in all of Ecuador suspected to be 30-40 birds (E. Horstman in litt. 2012). Recent conservation efforts in Costa Rica have stabilized numbers with less than 300 birds and an estimated 25-35 breeding pairs remaining (PsittaScene Aug. 2011). There are less then 1000 individuals in South American.
Factors contributing to decline in numbers;

Unsustainable exploitation, poaching for the wild bird trade
Subspecies guayaquilensis reportedly shot as a crop-pest
Conversion of forest to oil-palm and banana plantations, causing the loss of the large Mountain Almond
Increased impact of logging, agriculture, illegal coca plantations, gold mining and hunting
Illegal trapping for in-country trade, food and feathers


This macaw prefers lowland humid forest and also strongly deciduous forest; in Costa Rica lowland primary forest. It is found at altitudes to 600m (1968 ft) in Costa Rica and1000m (3280 ft) in Panama. Less gregarious than other large macaws, it is found in pairs and groups of 3-4 birds, foraging on fruits and flowers.

Tomorrow we will take a closer look at the plight of the Scarlet Macaws, and what we can do to help save the remaining populations.

  Hi Peewee
We have finally arrived at Monday once more. It's hard to realize one week is already gone on my BOTM campaign. Today we will take a short stop-over in Costa Rica to visit some good friends of mine and see what they have been busily working on. Being a Macaw this is one subject that is near and dear to my heart. The Ara Project. The Ara Project is a Costa Rican non-profit organization that’s breeds, for the sole purpose of release into the wild, endangered Scarlet & Great Green Macaws. With only 2000 Scarlet Macaws left in Costa Rica and only around 2500 Great Green Macaws ( also known as Buffon's or Military) left in the world the Ara Project is proving "breeding for release" to be a valuable tool to prevent further declines in the numbers or even extinction of these magnificent birds. They work in conjunction with MINAET (Costa Rican Ministry of Environment, Energy & Telecommunications).
The Great Green or Military(Buffon's) Macaw is endangered, and has been one of the key elements in the proposal for the formation of a new National Park in Costa Rica, Maquenque National Park. Already significant parts of the bird's existing habitat is covered by Nature reserves and other conservation projects. Project Ara is working hand in hand with locals to reestablish a strong breeding pool of wild Macaws with the end result to stop and reverse it's rapid decline.

The Ara Project incorporates breeding techniques and aviary management in order to carry out controlled release programs in conjunction with Costa Rican wildlife laws imposed by MINAET. The Ara Project has released a total of 80 Scarlet Macaws on its release sites. The Ara Project aimed to started their Great Green Macaw reintroduction program in 2011. This will be Costa Rica's and the world's first official reintroduction of the species. To date having released a number of both species
In the 80's retired American couple Margot and Richard Frisius started a licensed zoological park to take care of parrots confiscated by the government or disowned by private owners. In 1992 they officially started a breeding program to participate in macaw conservation, resulting in the establishment of the non-profit organization formerly known as "Amigos de las Aves" (Friends of the Birds). Over the years they created what has become the biggest collection of Great Green Macaws in captivity and, upon acquiring a breeding stock of sufficient genetic diversity, a successful Scarlet Macaw reintroduction program.

  Hi Peewee
Happy Sunday to all my BC friends. Zeena here with a look at a species of bird, well reputed as THE best talker and mimicker. Once abundantly available at low prices, today an often difficult to find and much costly addition to ones Flockily. Momma Deb says as a child she recalls seeing a number of these interesting, entertaining birds kept in Pet Stores, and businesses. She has been searching for one for over ten years and only encounter one at a very costly price.
The Mynah, the loved and disliked Clown of the avian world.
The Common Myna (Acridotheres tristis), sometimes spelled Mynah, also sometimes known as "Indian Myna", is a member of the family Sturnidae (starlings and mynas) native to Asia. An omnivorous open woodland bird with a strong territorial instinct, the Myna has adapted extremely well to urban environments.The Common Myna is an important motif in Indian culture and appears both in Sanskrit and Prakrit literature. "Myna" is derived from the Hindi language maina which itself is derived from Sanskrit madana.

The range of the Common Myna is increasing at such a rapid rate that in 2000 the IUCN Species Survival Commission declared it one of the world's most invasive species and one of only three birds in the top 100 species that pose an impact to biodiversity, agriculture and human interests. In particular, the species poses a serious threat to the ecosystems of Australia where it was named "The Most Important Pest/Problem".

Mynahs are a lively, confident, aggressive, and noisy bird. It is friendly and perky, and the large flocks that gather at roosting time are usually raucous and grouchy. As pets they have many redeeming qualities including an inmate ability to mimic sounds, whistles and human speech. Once quite common in the pet trade, they now are difficult to locate. The Greater and Lesser Hill Mynahs are most thought of when imaging a Mynah Bird. Their clownish, outgoing personalities winning many a fan in years past.

Mynah's eat a mixture of specially formulated insect mash and fresh foods. Like the Lories, they have watery, odorous droppings, making them difficult to maintain in a home environment. those who endure the mess speak lovingly of their companions who seem to adore children, and adults alike. Daily cage washing, bathing and out of cage time are mandatory for good health. Momma Deb recalls that in her childhood most Mynah's were caged in small cramped cages,eating a diet of sunflower seeds and fruit. Thus living a miserable, short life. As advances came, it was found that Mynah's must have a balanced, more natural diet, and lots of room to move around in their cages. Bonded pairs breed readily in captivity. Babies that are hand-reared average $1200 to 1500 each when available. Bali Mynah's are rare and available to collectors only.

I wish to thank all my friends here on C for their daily support, and words of encouragement.

  Hi Peewee
Good afternoon my dear BC friends, Zeena here with today's BOTM blog. We will once more make a stop in South American to visit one of natures very interesting and unique inhabitants. Our host is one of aviculture's beautiful, and unusual songbirds. The Green Oropendola. The Green Oropendola is of exclusively Amazonian distribution.The Green Oropendola (Psarocolius viridis) is generally common in its wooded habitats that are found in the Amazon and Guianas of South America; specifically Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Peru, Suriname, and Venezuela. Largely pale green above, the posterior underparts and rump are chestnut, and the tail is largely yellow except for the central rectrices. The bill is green basally, becoming red towards the tip, and the skin around the eyes and lores is pink. Males and females are similar in plumage, but the latter sex is substantially smaller. Like most oropendolas, this species breeds in colonies, usually of five to ten pairs, and constructing a hanging ‘basket’ nest of woven plant fibers. The species’ displays are similar to those of the Crested Oropendola (Psarocolius decumanus).
Related common species include such song-birds as the Meadow Lark, Bobo-Link and Bullock's Oriole to name but a few.
The Green Oropendola eats a diet of fresh fruits, insects, mynah bird food and nectar in captivity. An active, high energy species these birds require a large, long flight to maintain them in good condition. Somewhat difficult to breed, these beautiful birds require an aviary suitable to house a number of mature pairs to have any success in nesting and rearing offspring. Hand reared babies of the Green Oropendola are occasionally available but do not tend to retain tameness once weaned. In the wild they typically nest in colonies similarly to Quaker Parrots, building their hanging basket-like nests in a common tree. Captive breeding is seeing an increase in successful clutches being raised to fledging and adulthood.
These are definitely not a species for the beginner avicultarist, and their pricy purchase costs in excess of $850.00US each leaves them to the more well off and experienced collectors. Their song is soft and melodious, a pleasure to listen to. Their call is often described as flute-like and low.
Tomorrow we will visit with a wonderful, entertaining species of bird, that once filled many living rooms, but today is rare both in captivity and their wild habitat.
I wish to thank all my many friends for their loving support on my quest to be August's BOTM. I couldn't make it without all of you.

  Hi Peewee
Hello everybird, Zeena here with today's BOTM blog. First I wish all my US friends a happy and safe 4th of July Holiday. It is also the day that my little fister Little Angel will marry her beloved Dixie. Their wedding will take place on the BC Castle page number 239094. All are invited to join these two "love-birds" this evening at 6PM Eastern Time as they share their vows of love. The reception will follow on the same page. Today we will take a peek into a few nesting boxes around the world and see what we find. Come on, let's be very quiet, as we explore the many new Blue and Gold Macaw mutations .Color Mutations are considered "pure" birds. They occur in nature, although rarely and if they do, they often don't survive long, if the "new color" is too vibrant and they are easily visible by predators.

Color mutations in captivity are perpetuated by breeding like colored birds to like colored birds (of two birds that carry the color gene). The resultant offspring will often be the color that is desired. Hybrids are the crossing of two species, whereas mutations occur spontaneously.

Most of us know the Blue and Yellow Macaw. Many of us own one or more, however there are some really eggciting new mutations I'd like us to take a look at. We are most familiar with the typical blue and Gold. However there is a larger variant from Bolivia called the Bolivian Blue and Gold Macaw. The Bolivian variety is distinguished by its larger size and its coloring. On all these Macaws the colors are vibrant, but the Bolivian has more of a true blue rather than the teal blue seen in the average Blue and Gold. They all share the same wonderful personality and characteristics.

The Bolivian Blue and Gold Macaw is a variant originating only in Bolivia. It looks just like the typical Blue and Gold, however, it is much larger. A mutation of the Blue and Gold Macaw has also been reported where the yellow coloring is absent creating a blue and white bird. Although seldom seen or available there are many new mutations being bred. Many sell for over $50,0US each.
Momma Deb told me she would love to have one of each, they are so beautiful, I am certain you will have to agree.

  Hi Peewee
Hello everybirdie. Zeena here with today's Rainforest findings. I wish to thank everyone for their awesome support and hope you will enjoy today's feature species.
The Harpy Eagle is a majestic shadow that silently soars above the Rainforest canopy. Once common, and plentiful, today they rest on the brink of extinction. Previously a common sight in Brazil, the Harpy Eagle has become as rare as seeing a unicorn would be. Hunted to near extinction for their feathers, sport and out of fear and concern for their livestock, these awesome giants of the Raptor world are rapidly disappearing. These birds terrify hapless animals that forage in the shifting sunlight of the high canopy. Harpy eagle is the largest and the most powerful raptor throughout America. They belong to the family of accipitridae. American harpy eagle typically inhabits lowland rainforests but are disappearing from much of its range due to habitat loss and it almost extirpated in Central America.
The Harpy Eagle weighs in at 20 to 27 pounds for a hen and 12 to 17 pounds for a male, standing between 40 and 60 inches in length, sporting 5 to 7 inch talons it is a formidable predator dining on a diet consisting largely of sloth and moneys, with other animals making up the balance. In flight the Harpy flies on strong 5 to 7 foot wide spans, silent and watchful for a meal below in the dense Rain Forest canopy.
With wide spread clear-cutting and man's guns, the Harpy Eagle is soon going to be gone from the wild habitat it once claimed. Nesting in tree top nests, the single chick remains with the parents for up to two years. Pairs mate for life thus making it harder to rebuild endangered populations. Many Harpy Eagles have be poached for the private collector market relentlessly, with current breeding programs being established to help stave off their total elimination. Used by Bird of Prey enthusiasts and trained to hunt on command. Many die from lack of proper diet, and education of would be owners. New Government regulations being in place it is hoped to make owning Harpy Eagles a more difficult objective. Would be owners now have to finish a Government regulated Raptors training program which entails sixteen to eighteen months apprenticeship training in care, training and husbandry.
Tomorrow we will take a closer look at a new and exciting find that is shaking the bird community. Discovered in a nestbox, this unusual baby has enthusiasts in awe.
A quick reminder that on Friday July 4th my fister LITTLE ANGEL THRIFT will wed the handsome Mr Dixie Adler at the BC Castle page number 239094

  Hi PeeWee
Hello everybirdie, Zeena here with today's BOTM post. As we land in Brazil, we are cautioned to be very quiet so we don't disturb the Macaws. SHhhhhh!

The Spix's Macaw (Cyanopsitta spixii), also known as the Little Blue Macaw, is a macaw native to Brazil.First discovered by German naturalist Georg Marcgrave, when he was working in the State of Pernambuco, Brazil in 1638 and it is named for German naturalist Johann Baptist von Spix, who collected a specimen in 1819 on the bank of the Rio São Francisco in northeast Bahia in Brazil.
The bird is a medium size parrot weighing about 300 grams (0.66 lb), smaller than most of the large macaws. Its plumage is various shades of blue, with a grey-blue head, light blue underparts, and vivid blue upperparts. Males and females are identical in appearance, the females being a little smaller on average. The Spix Macaw is reported to be extinct in the wild, with the disappearance of one last single male in 2000. All remaining Spix Macaws are now kept in several private breeding programs without the world. Due to their extremely small numbers none are available for public viewing. The largest colony of approximately 40 birds is currently owned by an Arab sheik who has been working on breeding these beautiful birds with the final hope that they will be able to be released into their former remaining habitat.
The Spix Macaws were destroyed in the wild by excessive deforestation and hunting. The colonies were ruthlessly killed, poached for the pet trade and shot for pure sport until they had been eliminated in their territory. The introduction of predators into their habitat, including rats, monkeys and feral cats also aided the quick decline in wild Spix populations. In recent years there have been isolated reports of Spix Macaws in land in protected, isolated locations but this has not been publicly verified, although it possibly might be true, to protect what remaining wild pairs there are.
A sad note, this past Wednesday PRESLEY, the second to last known wild-born member of the species flew to the Rainbow Bridge after a brief illness. Presley had been kept as a pet in the USA for years, but was returned to Brazil in 2008. He left no progeny. He was 40 years old at his death.
Presley's death is a blow to conservation efforts in both a symbolic and literal sense. Critically endangered, these native Brazilian birds (Cyanopsitta spixii) are believed to be extinct in the wild. Decades of deforestation and rampant wildlife trafficking have besieged the medium-size macaws, who also ended up having to compete for nest space with introduced Africanized honeybees.
Now with fewer then 100 living specimens, most closely related, the Spix Macaws future hangs in the balance. This spring heralded in the hatching of 5 babies, 3 of which were due to artificial insemination. Perhaps someday our grandchildren will be able to see the wild Spixs fly free once more.

  Hi Peewee
Hello Everybirdie
Today we kick off my month of July BOTM run with a special celebration. It's Canada Day here with all the food,fun, family and firework displays. I hate fireworks, too noisy, but being a Macaw I'm always up for some food, and fun. I want to begin this month by telling you a little bit about myself. Most of you already know my handsome frother SKY, my mischievous fister Little Angel and my adventurous frother Casey, but some may not know me birdsonally.
I joined the Sky Flock in 2013. It was Easter weekend when Momma Deb received the call from my former owner to "come today and get her PLEASE!!!!!" I am sure glad that Momma Deb did, because it was the best thing that happened to me in a long while. I had lived with my first owners for 13-14 years but it became necessary to rehome me and I was sold to a lady who had a whole house full of very large, very aggressive Pitbulls and Rottweilers. I never left my cage and spent a whole year and some living in fear of being attacked by the dogs. I thought things were going to get better when once more I was resold. The lady who bought me had two large dogs who constantly barked and growled at me. I was so stressed I began to pluck some of my feathers out and I never spoke, and hadn't in 2 1/2 years.
It was my best day when Momma Deb arrived to take me away from there. I'd only been there a short while but I was relieved to be going somewhere I hoped would be better. I am very happy here at the Sky Flock, I get out of my cage all the time and love to yell at the other birds to be quiet. Momma Deb discovered I have a rather extensive vocabulary and know how to count to sixteen, and know a number of songs as well.
Enough about me. Let's get our suitcases, cameras and sunscreen ready as we begin our trip to every corner of the world. We will visit some very rare and endangered species, learn about some interesting and unusual birds, and my favorite take a look at some of the awesome mutations showing up around the planet of some of our most common feathered friends.
I will see every one tomorrow.

  The Open Chest
Hello, Queen Little Angel here with THE REST OF THE STORY. I am having a wonderful time in the Castle. The Tropical Fruits Garden is nearing completion, and soon every bird will be able to enjoy all the wild, exotic fruits and plants from their native habitats.
"The blackness closes tightly around the group of birdies trapped in the dungeon with Queen Little Angel.Dixie & Little Angel
stand close to one another as the other birdies that are trapped in the dark,damp,dank,dismal dungeon gather around them in a dark circle,each one thinking of a way they can get out of there! Everyone has got to give it their best shot and think about what we can do! "Since its so dark down here,we should form a fid bond by each of us taking the wing of the next birdie beside us and keep going down the line like that so we never lose another birdie in our group!" Dixie explains. So, wingtip to wingtip to wingtip and so on and so forth all down the line the birdies form a fid chain to keep each one safe and with one other! "Now I have a great idea,"Cookie steps up from the blackness of the eerie dankness of the cavern and then starts telling them all his idea.
"there has to be a doorway here. Somewhere that the pirates used to go in and out. If we move around the room wing in wing, we are sure to find it. We have to be careful."
UP in Popeye's office SamIAm, Spot, Willie and Polly watch the images on the screen. Popeye chuckles, " I sure hope SKY's idea to scare Little Angel into being more careful works"
"Ok, let's give this a try" Snowy says as he grabs tightly onto Chirpy and Falco's wings. Slowly, tiny step at a time the line moves towards the wall. "OOOWWWW!" cries Cori in the darkness "I found the wall."
Using their wings the group touch the walls and side step one step at a time along the whole wall, and around the corner. "NOTHING!" Dino sighs sadly, " Now what?"
"Let's go back to where the chest is." Queen LA says, leading the way. As they proceed towards the wood box, Zippy trips over something hidden in the mounds of jewels and coins. Bending down, Zippy feels for the object she had tripped over. "Here, I found this!!" she holds up a very rusty, old key.
The birdies let out a startled gasp. " It's the key to the chest!" Dixie takes the heavy key and feels it's shape with his one free wingtip.
"Let's open the chest!" Snowy says eagerly.
"Noooo, Captain Jack will be back and who knows what will become of us if we dare" Cori adds.
"We'll open it quickly and look inside, then we can lock it and hide the key again" Queen Little Angel replies, taking the old key in her two wing tips. She very carefully inserts it into the lock on the chest. With much effort she turns it and they hear a loud "clicking sound" as the lock springs open and...............
see ya soon, With the REST OF THE STORY, love Queen Little Angel

  The Legend of Captain Jack's Treasure
Hello every birdie, Queen Little Angel back after a short absence with THE REST OF THE STORY.
Dixie & Little Angel head to the right and as they start walking in that direction they feel a cold chill whizzing by them! All of the birdies trapped below get a sudden chill up and done their spines. Too scared to move frozen in place, they try to see any images they can configure in the darkness,if any at all! Turning to the left,holding their wings out stretched wingtips dragging along the cool,clammy, dank, dismal castle walls,Dixie cries out in surprise! "Oh,I just felt something along this wall!" He brushes his wingtip back over the space on the wall that he thought felt different,raised and not flat or stoney like the wall usually was! Locating the place he grips something!"What is this?????" escapes Dixie's beak as suddenly the floor opens and all the birdies are sent falling down a smooth, winding tunnel. Screams of fright and startle coming from everyone. Unable to grasp anything the group of terrified birdies plummet downwards.
Coming to an abrupt stop at the bottom on a large pile of hard, round and oval shapes.
"Where are we?" cries Cookie, grabbing Dino and Cori close. " I don't know but it's dark and cold in here." Polly says nervously.
"Dixie?" Queen L.A. calls trying to feel for him in the blackness.
"I'm here sweetheart" Dixie calls trying to crawl over to where he heard Little Angel's voice.
" We have to stay calm. Let's see if we can find out what we landed on. Maybe it'll be a clue as to where we are and help us to escape..." Queen L.A. exclaims trying to think of a plan.
Willie looks around to see where the others have disappeared to. " Hello? Where are you guys?" Willie frowns and tries the door. " HHHMMM, locked tight" Thinking for a second he decides to follow the long, dark hallway to the coke machine and suit of armour. As he walks carefully along he recalls the description his friend Angel Sunny had told him of her visit to the dungeon. "Ok, just around this corner.." Willie continues along the hall. "There it is. I'll take the elevator up and see if they went upstair to the main floor. If not, Popeye can help me find them" Pushing the button he steps into the opened door.
"Whatever this is, it is cold, hard and taste: sputter, spit, UUUCKKK, bad like metal" Queen LA says out loud. Rubbing a piece on her feathers she tries to see it in the dark. "I think I found some diamonds and rubies over here" Snowy says eggcitedly.
"Yes, there is a big box here, with a large lock on it." Chirpy tells everyone. "I think we've found the long hidden treasure of Captain Jack"
Every birdie stands very still and quiet. A ripple of fear passing over them. They had all heard the scary tales of the Captain and the curse on the treasures he hid deep within the BC Castle long, long ago.
See you tomorrow with THE REST OF THE STORY
love Queen Little Angel

  The Castle Dungeon
Hello fellow explorers. I hope some birdie brought a flashlight, just in case.
Queen Little Angel and Dixie hold each other wing in wing as Queen Little Angel leads the whole group of friends to the entryway!As they begin to descend the long, dark, winding,very steep,musty and old smelling stairs, the group of brave(?) birdies stay close together, moving as if one huge multi colored bird. The old stairs creak and groan as they take one careful step after another.
"Come on, let's go. This is going to be sooo much fun. I've never been into the dungeon before. Sky wouldn't let us when he was King in Dec. 2012." Queen L'il Angel laughs and claps her wings happily as she leads them deeper under the castle. Stopping at the bottom,Queen L.A. recalls Angel Sunny's words. "Angel Sunny had said to her,, "It is very bad and very scary?" Queen L'il Angel pauses but a moment then remembering the dream she, looked for the sign she had been shown.
Seeing it exactly where Angel Sunny had told her, she reads it out loud. The sign reads, "WARNING" The sounds and images in the dungeon are very realistic. If you scare easily, do not continue. "Hummmph!"Angel Queen Sunny told me, "If you are tough, you can take it."
"Ok, this way" Queen L'il Angel says hurrying off towards the old wooden door . Just as she reaches to turn the handle the lights go out, leaving them in pitch darkness. The birdies scream in fright. "HEY!" Queen L'il Angel yells as some birdie grabs her tightly.. " It's just me Cookie. I wanted to protect you"
"Let's go back. I'm afraid of the dark." Zippy says out loud.
"I brought a flash light" Falco says. " Willie has his too."
Queen Little Angel pushes the door hard and it opens slowly on rusty hinges, making a eery sound.
"YEAH! This way. Angel Sunny showed me the way. We have to follow this hallway.." The group reluctantly follows behind Dixie and Queen L'il Angel staying close together in the dim light on the two flashlights. Seeing doors as far as the eye can see in the faded light. Queen L'il Angel points down the long, dark hallway to one with the lock opened.
"Ok, let's go. There's a room with the lock removed. We can start here." She is off as fast as her short legs can take her. Waiting at the closed door for the group to join her. "Ready, set, let's go exploring!!" turning the old wooden door handle the door refuses to move. "We have to push hard togther. The birds all put their wings on the door and P-U-S-H. the door flies open sending the group of adventures falling into the darkness of the room. Suddenly the door snaps closed. "AAAAAAAAHHHHH, EEEEKKKK, AAAGHHHHH!" the screams echo as everybirdie tries to push it open. "We're trapped!!!!!!!"
See you all tomorrow, love from
Queen L'il Angel

  Day 5 in the Castle
Hi every birdie, Queen Little Angel here with THE REST OF THE STORY. I must first let you all know how much fun it is here at the castle. Having so many of you staying with me makes it all the more eggciting.
Queen Little Angel wakes up early on Monday morning ready to go exploring. With her frother Sky off to visit his Miss BB what better time then now to sneak off to the dungeon, way down deep under the castle.
Last night as she slept in her comfy bed, Queen L'il Angel had dreamed a dream. In the dream a beautiful lutino Ringneck had come to visit her from the Rainbow Bridge.
"Hello, Queen L'il Angel. I'm Sunny, and I've come to warn you about the dungeon. Do NOT go there, it is very scary and very dangerous. BUT if you MUST I shall watch over you to keep you from harm."
Queen Little Angel clearly remembered the dream as she sat for just a moment on the edge of her bed. " I'll go down to the dungeon today and look around with my friends. It can't be THAT SCARY". Hopping down Queen L'il Angel stretches her wings and checks her reflection in the mirror. "Time for breakfast at the magic dining table. I love that table it gives me whatever I ask to eat and I can even change my mind. I'll have to look into getting myself one for my cage at home."
Heading to the bedroom door, she pulls it open quietly. " Good morning your highness!" comes the response, making Queen Little Angel jump. " OOOHHH, I thought I was alone at this early hour." The guard opens the door more to allow Queen L'il Angel to pass by. Walking softly to the stairs, she is surprised that everybirdie is already up and about. Seeing Dixie she rushes to join him for breakfast. " Good morning!" Queen L'il Angel calls as she enters the dining room. "Dixie sweetheart, I hope you slept well!" Dixie stands up and hugs his Little Queen close kissing her softly on the beak. " Yes. Come, join me for breakfast so we can get exploring sweetie."
"I think I'd like pancakes today, with real maple syrup, maybe scrambled eggs and multi-grain toast." Poof, it appears before her. "One could get to like this Dixie" smiling she bows her head to say a blessing and dives into the hot, delicious food.
"Polly, so nice to see you this morning. Cydney, you look ready for adventure in that outfit." Queen L'il Angel finishes her food and swipes her beak. " orange juice would be nice too." The glass appears from no where. Drinking all of her juice, she stands up "EVERYONE READY FOR ADVENTURE???" the room echos with "yes, ready and a few OH NOOOS. Cookie, I heard that OOHHH NNOOO!" she giggles and begins to share her dream with her friends. "Let's go then. Off to the dungeon. The room grows very quiet as birdies look to one another nervously. Don't worry, it can't be that scary" The group gathers behind Queen Little Angel and they begin their first adventure.
See you tomorrow as we go to the dark, scary dungeon together..
with love Queen L'il Angel

  The Coronation of Little Angel part 2
Hello to all my friends, Queen Little Angel here with the REST OF THE STORY. I must say I am having so much fun at the castle, and enjoying your visits. I hope some of you can come to stay. Tomorrow we can start to explore the castle. I promised Momma Deb and SKY I'd be good today!
"Queen Bella smiled as she greeted me into the BC Castle. Queen Cookie was there too, to welcome me. All my friends stood in a long line from the Royal Carriage right up to the front doors. That was when I first saw my Dixie."
Dixie eggcitedly watched his new Queen Little Angel,his one true love, on her very special day as she arrived to be inducted into the Castle as the official Queen for the month of August! "How beautiful everything is" and he watches as she steps out of the most beautiful gilded carriage driven by six white horses! As his Little Angel stepped out from the carriage,he stood in the line of all their friends and watched her elegant entrance into the warm lights of the Castle and her ascent up the steps to the Throne,being led on her way by the Royal Guardsmen! A smile ever so proud starts to form on Dixie's little green cheek beak."
Little Angel smiles and curtsies to Queen Bella and Queen Cookie. Queen Bella stands up in the now crowded Throne Room and comes to stand before a kneeling Little Angel. After a short speech and exchange of oaths, Queen BElla takes Little Angel by the wing and turns her to face the Throne Room, and their many friends. " Today, I present to you Queen Little Angel. Do you accept her to be your BOTM Queen for the month of August?"
The birdies in attendance of the coronation clap, and yell "YES, we do." Smiling, Queen Bella hands to Queen Little Angel the Royal Specter and says " your August Queen, Little Angel." Queen Bella walks Queen Little Angel to the Royal Throne where she takes her seat.
"You will be a wonderful Queen Little Angel" Queen Bella says hugging her.
"I hope I do as well as you did Queen Bella"
The Royal trumpets sound as Queen Little Angel begins here month at the castle. No longer able to contain her eggcitement Queen Little Angel hops off her throne, waddling as fast as she can to embrace Dixie. "
" Let the celebrations begin!" SamIAM calls out as the Scruffy Birds begin to play.
"May I have the first dance my Queen L'il Angel?" Dixie asks bowing. Queen Little Angel laughs at how formal Dixie is tonight, taking his wing they begin to dance among their friends on the Royal dance floor."
It was such a wonderful night, filled with magic, friends and laughter. I will forever remember it.
with love Queen Little Angel

  The Coronation of Little Angel part 1
Hello to all my Bird Channel Friends, QUEEN LITTLE ANGEL here with THE REST OF THE STORY!
It was such an eggciting month, I just loved having my friends take part in some of my many misadventures. I plan to continue to write while at the castle. I hope some of you can tell me all the different rooms, and places in the castle.
It was at the stroke of Midnight when I heard the soft sound of something or someone moving towards my cage. Ever so cautiously I opened one eye to check it out. Boy was i surprised when I gazed upon a Royal Guard just inches away from my cage door.
"HELLO Little Angel. I am here to escort you to the Royal BC Castle!"
"ME?" I asked half asleep
"Yes, you are going to your Coronation, as Queen for the month of August" the guard smiles and held open my cage door. Taking my wing tip he helped me out and lead me to the most beautiful horse driven carriage. Six white horses shifted their feet, eager to get going.
When I stepped outside into the night, I was surprised to see five other guards all lines up in a procession to the doorway to the white carriage.
"Come, let's be going" the guard assured me as he took me through the honor guard and helped me into the Royal carriage.
It seemed but minutes and we were pulling up before the most beautiful castle. I had forgotten how lovely it was when my frother SKY was KING last December. I simply stared at it in amazement. It was all like a wonderful fairytale dream, but it was really happening.
The door swung open and the guard told me to "come with him, everyone is waiting inside." Holding out his wing he took me into the light of the palace. What a surprise to see so many of my friends there, and Royal guards lined up one by one leading right to the throne where Queen Bella sat smiling at me...
PLEASE come visit at the Castle we can explore every room together. Tomorrow I will finish the REST OF THE STORY.
my deepest love to all of you
Queen Little Angel

  hi Peewee
Hello every birdie, Little Angel here with THE REST OF THE STORY. It may be the end of July but to those who know me, it will not be the END OF THE STORY. I must say a HUGE THANK YOU to each of my friends who have faithfully supported me this month with votes, encouragement and GREYT story lines. I just wish I could have used them all.
"Oh yes, back to the story..." Dixie and I sat in the warm sun, ever so glad to be away from those crazy mirrors. As we relaxed, Ranebeau wandered by heading to the House of Mirrors, seeing us he stopped by to ask " if I take these Hazel nuts I got into the house of mirrors, would that mean I'd have like a ZILLION hazelnuts? !!!! They'd be these GIGANTIC nuts, big as an apple! Huge! I'm gonna try it. I'm gonna take these hazelnuts... RB looks in the basket and sees there's just one left... Okay, I'm going to take this ONE hazelnut into the House of Mirrors and see what happens. L'il Angel gives Dixie a worried look, "be careful, there's a huge, monsterous spider in there. RB steps into the mirrored maze, sees himself here, there and everywhere. He next looks for the humongous hazelnut, duplicated all over the place. He doesn't see it. Instead he sees this tiny little minuscule nut in his grasp, shrunk to an itty-bitty size by all the mirrors. "Well, ain't that the luck! I get the mirrors that make things smaller!" HE laughs as he pops the nut in his beak and enjoys it none the less.
"Dixie I have an idea. Why don't we go to the Tunnel of Ghouls and Ghosts? or the Ferris Wheel, or the Roller coaster or the..."
Dixie grabs Little Angel kissing her on the beak.
"How about we go to the Tunnel of Love ?"
Dixie looks hopefully at L'il Angel. " I'm sure you can't get into trouble there. All we have to do is sit in a little boat and..." Dixie looks and L'il Angel is gone, waddling towards the merry-go-round. " Wait up!" Dixie calls as he follows her
"I'm gonna ride on the big white horse. Come on, let's hurry Dixie" L'il Angel exclaims as she takes his wing tip in hers.
"After the merry-go-round maybe we can go to the Birdie Haven Park to roller skate?"
Dixie sighs softly. Thinking to himself that at last L'il Angel won't be able to get into any mischief. They can enjoy the rest of the day together just having fun. Then Dixie looks at his Little Angel and grinning to himself knowing fully well that the misadventures seem to find Little Angel regardless of what she is doing.
"Ok, that sounds like fun L'il Angel"
"We'll have so much fun Dixie, we can........."

Thank you once more from the depth of my heart. I have had sooo much fun and sharing it with all of you has made it all that more eggciting. Maybe my frother SKY will let me share a story now and then when he resumes the SPOTLIGHT ON CARING blogs after His and Miss BB's wedding and honeymoon in SEPTEMBER.
"Oh my. If I make it to the castle there is just so much to do there, places to explore, rooms to visit,,,,,,,,,
with all my love

  Hi Peewee and Cheeky
Hello to all my BC friends, Little Angel here with THE REST OF THE STORY. Just two blogs left and July is over.
"The eery laugh filled the room where Dixie & Little Angel
reunited hold each other close and ever so tightly as if they were joined at the wing,they both hold their breath,and listen to the loud eerie ghostly laugh coming out of the darkness,and feel the coldness in the room right down to their hollow bones! Little Angel buries her head in Dixie's neck feathers shivering like a leaf! As Dixie tries to turn Little Angel in the direction he thinks that they both came from, he feels a freezing cold wind blow by him and Little Angel that makes the feathers stand up on his head,making him look like a Hawk-head. The shadows in the room making large black points above their heads high on the walls and the ceilings The shimmering of the mirrors casting soft silvery light on their frightened faces!
"Come on L'il Angel" Dixie leads Little Angel in the direction he was planning on going to get out. Hearing the laughter, coming closer, they stop. As they listen they feel an ice cold breeze go by then. " What was that?" This time the laughing didn't fade into the distance, but stopped and stayed right where he and Little Angel were standing! They both looked up with frightened faces. With just one look, they screamed in fright, " AAAAWWWWW! HHEEELLLPPPP! EEEEEEHHHH!"
"Run L'il Angel, run!" screamed Dixie grabbing her by the wing and pulling her along with him. Panting in fright they find the hall that leads to the exit. Running as fast as they can move they bolt for the door.
"WHHHAAATTT?" sighs the little Spider looking at his reflection in the mirrors. "Oh well, I'm having fun!" he sticks out his tongue and makes scary sounds, laughing and laughing at his strange reflections.
Falling onto the grass outside, they hold one another close. " THAT sure was a BIG, terrifying, Cave Monster" L'il Angel says, trying to calm herself down. Dixie nodding his head in agreement. As the two sit in the sunlight, they see SKY and Miss BB heading into the House of Mirrors, with Cori, Pepper, Mayo, Pookie and Jivu. " Think we should warn them?" Dixie asks.
"NAh! We'll wait for them right here."
It isn't long before L'il Angel and Dixie hear the eery, scary laughter. "They should be running out of there any minute." L'il Angel tells Dixie with a wink. When no one appeared they begin to worry that the Cave Monster got them. Shortly they hear the laughter of SKY and the others heading out the exit door.
"L'il Angel you forgot your friend!" Sky opens his wing tip, showing them the tiny, Itty-bity spider.
"AAAAHHHHH, EEEHHHH," Dixie and L'il Angel scream running away as fast as they can, hiding themselves behind a bush.
"OH WELL!" Sighed the spider, " This happens every time I see those two!"
see you all tomorrow, with the end of my stories
with love Little Angel

  I think I'm seeing double?????
Hello, Little Angel here with THE REST OF THE STORY. I`ve had so much fun this month, it is hard to believe it is almost over. Thank you everyone for your votes and encouragement along this journey!
"I'm Lost!" L'il Angel sighs and looks around for something familiar. "Oh where is Dixie?" She listens carefully to hear his voice but all is silent. It is then that L'il Angel hears the scary noise again, coming from somewhere deep within the House of Mirrors. Dixie sits and cries uncontrollably because he feels so trapped in a situation that he just can't control! No matter which way he turns he can't seem to get away from all the mirrors that surround him,he can't even call loud enough to get Little Angel to hear his cries to her! Hearing a voice in his head to get up and do something,he stops crying and decides he's going to find Little Angel one way or another,even if it takes all day! Finding his way back down the very hall that Little Angel trod just minutes before,he gets to the very end of it, and trips over something in the darkness and falls into a larger room with even more larger mirrors."
L'il Angel hears a loud whooshing sound and turns quickly to see what it was. There is nothing but mirrors and reflections to meet her worried gaze. "Ok. I must try to find Dixie, and my way out of here. I will go slowly and try to retrace my path." Slowly she heads off to the left down a long corridor of large mirrors. Looking at herself as she goes, L'il Angel begins to laugh out loud.
Dixie, stands up and takes in the large room of large mirrors. " OH nooo. Now I will never find L'il Angel!" Dixie stands very still for just a moment then decides to head of to the right along a row of tall mirrors. As Dixie walks he listens for any sound of L'il Angel. As Dixie rounds a sharp corner he hears an eery, high pitched sound. Stopping in his traces he takes a deep breath. "Oh Nooo, not only am I lost, L'il Angel is lost and now there's something scary in here too."
"What was that noise?" L'il Angel asks herself. She listens but all is quiet once more. L'il Angel starts walking and comes to a sharp turn in the hall of mirrors. She looks into the mirrors and heads around the corner. At the same instant only steps away Dixie is also looking into the tall funny mirrors. "DIXIE!!" "Lil ANGEL" they both yell at the same time walking smack-dab into one another. "EEEHHHH, EEEEEEE, AAAAHHHHHH!" they both scream in fright.
Freezing in their tracks they stare into the dim mirrored light. "Dixie?"
"Little Angel?" what relief they both feel at being reunited. Hugging one another close they stand still as out of the darkness comes a LOUD, EERY, GHOSTLY LAUGH.

See you tomorrow with THE REST OF THE STORY
with love, hugs and votes

Hi, Little Angel with the REST OF THE STORY. "Dixie, let's hurry, we can ride on the Ferris wheel. I love the Ferris wheel." L'il Angel dances around Dixie eggcitedly.
"Come on everybody, let's get to the amusement park. We'll have lots of fun there!" Cookie calls. Mayo, Pookie, Cori and Pepper hurry to put their skateboards away. Jivu is already to go, as excited as L'il Angel.
"The group quickly arrives at the Amusement Park. Each heading in a different direction to check out all the games and rides. Dixie, and L'il Angel wander towards the house of mirrors. "Let's go inside and look around" Dixie leads the way.
"AHH, this is funny" Little Angel giggles looking at herself in a mirror. I'm all small and long. Now I'm big and my head is so big I look like a dinosaur." L'il Angel laughs and runs from mirror to mirror.
"Wait up" Dixie calls after her, but Little Angel is so busy looking at herself in all sorts of different shapes that she doesn't hear Dixie.
"Little Angel? Where are you?" Dixie calls trying to find where she went. The mirrors make everything look reversed, big and small. "Oh L'il Angel where are you???"
Dixie calls again and again but there is no answer. Worried about Little Angel Dixie tries to retrace his steps outside to find SKY and BB and some others to help him search for her inside.
"OH NOOO. I'm lost!" Dixie starts to cry. Taking one way after another Dixie continues to call for Little Angel, all the while hoping to find his way out. No matter which way he goes, Dixie runs into a wall of mirrors.
" OH Little Angel where are you?" Dixie sits down and begins to cry. HE doesn't know where Little Angel is, and worse yet, HE'S LOST! Listening carefully Dixie hears an eery voice coming from somewhere in the House of Mirrors. "Oh No a ghost. It's going to get Little Angel. Why did she wander off so far ahead?"
Little Angel is having so much fun looking at herself in so many funny ways that she doesn't realize that Dixie isn't behind her. "Dixie? Where are you?" she calls loudly. The voice echoing off the walls. " That sounds scary" she giggles to herself. I'll go back to find Dixie."
L'il Angel begins to walk back only to end up at a dead end. Turning to the right she follows the hallway until it stops with no where to go" L'il Angel looks around worried. "I have to go back to find Dixie!" Then she hears it. A loud, eery voice. She can't understand what it is saying but it sure is scary. "Ok. I need to follow this hall back and head left." Little Angel turns around and goes back the way she came, but instead of arriving at her starting point, she finds herself in a whole new room filled with big mirrors..'I'm lost!!"
See you Monday with THE REST OF THE STORY

  Com'on let's go to the Amusement park!!!
"Hello friends, Little Angel here with THE REST OF THE STORY. I'm so eggcited tonight is the Milonga. Hope to see all of you there.
Now, back to the oak tree by the yucky, ucky muck puddle"
Dixie and all the others gather round Little Angel and want to know just what she has in mind for everyone after they return the compass watch to Sam's Dad!
"Well," Little Angel starts telling them,"after returning the compass watch we can go to the amusement park and go on some of the rides there! They have the funhoue mirrors which are really cool to look at yourself in, with all the different sizes and shapes they make you look like and the roller coaster rides and the haunted house rides too!" The others all look at one another. Dixie just isn't too happy with this idea at all,its just too much space for Little Angel to get into trouble with! Dixie looks pleadingly into Poppa Sky's eyes and Sky suggests "that they all go to Cookie's house to play in the backyard." However, before Sky has a chance to finish his sentence, L'il Angel is off like a shot running towards the Amusement park. " Com'on, everyone follow me! We'll stop by Sam's to leave his Dad's watch first" Waving her wing she races ahead of the others.
"Wait up, L'il Angel" Dixie yells hurrying to keep up. Little Angel stops for a second to allow Dixie to catch up. " Sam's house his this way" Dixie points to the southwest.
Knocking on the front door L'il Angel holds the watch tightly in her wingtip. Sam arrives at the door. "L'il Angel? Hello everyone" Sam calls happily.
"Look!" L'il Angel says holding out the shiny watch. " I found your Dad's compass watch in the Crow's nest." she carefully places it into Sam's wing tip." "Thanks L'il Angel" Sam hugs her and hurries inside yelling for his Mom Robin. Shortly he returns with his Mom. She has a tray of drinks with her for everybirdie. They sit together in the backyard enjoying a few seconds rest. Dixie takes a deep sigh and turns to speak with L'il Angel. " OH NOOO! She's gone" then Dixie sees her two burgundy and green tail feathers disappearing throw the hedge row. "L'il Angel stop! Wait!" Dixie runs to catch up.
Seeing Dixie take off on the run, the others finish up their drinks, thanking Mom Robin and Sam and hurry to catch up. " she sure moves fast" says Cookie to Chirps as they rush after her.
"Dixie, let's go past Birdie Haven Park (253770) and see if our friends are there skateboarding.'
As L'il Angel talks to Dixie, the rest catch up tot hem. "WOW, you sure move fast!" Leroy and Pico say out loud.
"I wanta play on the Ferris wheel" L'il Angel smiles happily. " I am fast because I have no feathers to slow me down" she giggles " Let's go we'll have lots of fun there" L'il Angel takes Dixie's wing and walks to the skateboard park to see if their friends are there. Arriving there, they see that Mayo, Pookie, Cori, Jivu and Pepper are there ...
See you Sunday with THE REST OF THE STORY

  TGIF--Hurray for Fridays
Hi all, it's Friday at last and I'm lookin' forward to the weekend. Here's wishing you all a greyt one. Keep safe my friends.
"Sky sits in the mud laughing. "It's all in a day with L'il Angel. Is anybirdie going to help me outta here?" he calls to the group on the grass.
" Oh yeah. We almost forgot. How are we going to get SKY out of the ucky, yucky mucky mess?" asked Dino and Peatree.
"Here, I'll do it!' says Miss BB. She walks to the edge and jumps onto the ladder . " Don't worry SKY I'll save you!" Baby calls as she carefully walks across the muck on the ladder rungs. Reaching MR SKY she bends over and with both her wings she grabs hold of Sky by the waist. She pulls upwards and lifts Sky out of the mud. HE is still laughing so hard he can't talk. Baby, throws SKY over her shoulder and retraces her footsteps back to the dry ground. "There. Are you ok sweetheart?" Baby asks softly. Sky finally stops laughing and turns beet-red. " YES, yes, I'm fine. HHMM? I wonder who'll carry whom over the threshold on our wedding day?" Sky starts laughing once more and soon every bird is laughing over the latest predicament L'il Angel found herself in.
"NOW, all you muddy birdies stand in a line over by the trees. We have to clean off all that yucky muck before it dries." Miss BB holds the fire hose while Pico and Dory turn on the water. The water rushes out the hose nozzle at full force sending all the muddy birds flying into the long grass behind the trees. "Ok, turn off the water" Baby calls. " I think they're clean now!"
"Dixie brings a towel to Little Angel and drapes it over her shoulders and briskly wipes her dry so she won't get chilled. Dixie brings Little Angel up by the trees and has her sit under the big old oak tree while he goes to get her something to eat and something warm to drink! "You just stay right here under this tree,"he tells her,"I'll be but a moment to get you something to eat!" Dixie walks backward keeping his eye on Little Angel the whole while till he had to go inside! He points his green wing at her in a"you better stay right there" gesture before opening the door and going inside!
Little Angel sits quietly for a minute or two or three or six then looking up at the shiny firetruck ladder,her eyes light up and she makes a fast dash to climb it. Sky leaps to grab her but misses. "You get back down here L'il Angel." Dixie yells as he hurries back with a drink and snack.
"I just wanted to ring the bell on the Firetruck.." Stomping her foot at SKY she climbs back down. " Fine, I have another idea anyways........"
"OH NOO" yells everybirdie.
"L'il Angel what do you have in your wing-tip?" Silver and Pearl ask her.
"THIS!!!" she opens her wing
"It's a shiny compass-watch. It's Sam's Dad's. The Crow had it in the nest." she holds it int he sunlight. ' we all better go to Sam's house to return it"
"After we all can......"
See you tomorrow with THE REST OF THE STORY

Guess what . My old mom was here today to see me. I was kind of naughty she wanted to hold me but I had things to play with and Stormy was showing me how to be a neighborhood watch bird. Then I wanted to set on mom shoulder not my old mom shoulder. Mom felt bad for her. She told mom well she has settled in good here. I guess she already forgot about me. Mom said she had tears in her eyes. Mom told her no she has not forgot about you she just being a little stinker today. I have not forgot about her I still luv them. But after all this is my home now and I have lots of fiblings to tease and play with. Plus I'm being very spoiled here.

Mom went with a friend and got a pedi cure today to she was gone awhile but the good news is she came home with treats for us and the dogs.

Did I tell you mom is watching a friends little dog until Friday . His mom going to Los Vegas
So he going to hang out with our dogs while his mom is away. His name is Jeter. Mom sad he a real little dog. . Well not much going on here. Here a Sunday vote. Thank you for stoping by and voting for me... Tiel friend CHYNA

  Hi Peewee and Cheeky
Spotlight on Caring
Spotlight on Caring -Taz part 7
Sky here with our last blogs with the Proctor flock. I must say I have dearly enjoyed learning all about this well known B.C. flock. SKY; Please continue, Mom Gail; SUZIQ was the next member of the flock. She came from the same bird store as Scooby. We used to visit there fairly often and buy food there as well. Suzi was a sweet bird and used to live with the owner's wife but then after nine months she decided that she did want to sell her so Burt bought her for me to try and ease the pain of losing Xena, I was not ready for a grey and didn’t know if I ever would be. Suzi still is a beautiful and sweet girl who loves her me and only me. Suzi does like to lay eggs a lot. I have had her checked out to make sure her calcium levels were okay and they were, I also make sure that she gets enough calcium in her diet. Ekkies are also very sensitive with regards to their diets. They don't do well with a lot of additives in their food or with pellets; they need a nice fresh food diet. They also have a tendency to toe tapping and wing flapping usually due to an excess of additives in their diet or stress can also be the cause. Suzi did start to toe tap and wing flap years ago and I had to play detective to try and figure out what was causing this as she was not on any pellets or other type of bird food and there didn't seem to be any cause for stress either. After a lot of research I decided my only recourse was to do an elimination diet for her. I took away all food except peas to start with until she quit and if she didn't start up again after a few days I added another vegetable which was carrots...all well there but when I added corn well Suzi started up again, mom took it away and after three days she quit again. The only food to cause an issue was corn so no more corn for her ever. If she gets a little bit of corn cause she gets the wrong bowl the toe tapping and wing flapping come right back. No corn and all is well.
CHLOE is next to join, I was still missing having a grey around the house so Burt looked through the papers and found Chloe in a neighboring state. I talked to Chloe's mom through e-mails and we met them to pick her up and take her home. Chloe has been and is a joy to have around; she decided that she liked her dad best even though she was a Mother's Day present for mom. She is a good talker and has lots of sounds, some that she makes up. She loves to sing.
SIMON came to join us the following year. I always wanted a B&G macaw and so back to the papers for Burt. He spotted Simon in a neighboring state as well. We took the drive to see him. When we got there, we were let in to a very dark house where all the blinds were drawn and there was another macaw in the back screaming with a blanket over the cage

Come visit me, SKY, thank you for Jan 17th, 2016 BOTD & Little Angel.

As soon as Simon saw us he let out a really loud and friendly Hi, and as soon as we walked in we knew he was coming home with us no matter what. He has been a challenge for sure and I got bitten quite a few times in the beginning. He does not like men at all, in the 12 years he has been here that has not changed. He is a momma's boy and he has anger issues but I have figured him out pretty good now so I rarely get bitten unless I cause it by not paying attention. He is a very sweet bird in his own right. He loves being held and loved; I call him my cockatoo in a blue suit. My heart melts when he looks up at me and says "I love you", just like a guy. CHICA flew into our lives when her previous owner decided that he couldn't care for her anymore so he gave her to me. When Chica first came to live her she didn't like to be touched very much. She used to eat absolutely everything in sight until her bowl was empty. She gained quite a few grams now she is starting to enjoy being preened and held. It has taken time and patience so it is so nice to see her enjoying herself. She has learned a lot of new words from Simon and she has the most infectious laugh that it is impossible not to laugh with her.
PEARL was a beautiful little cockatiel. Burt saw her in a pet store, he really needs to stay away from those places, and brought her home. This was shortly after Tweety passed away. She was a sweetie and was sitting on Burt’s shoulder a few days after getting here and laid two eggs, she never laid anymore after that. She was with us for a few years and then got sick, we tried hard to save her but eventually she just couldn't stay with us anymore. It seemed as if she had turned the corner and was doing better but the next morning she was gone. She is buried in our back yard in the flowers. Miss you little girl. NAPOLEON joined us next. In case you didn't guess by now, I love greys. A lady in the bird club wanted to find a home for him and while at the meeting Napoleon and I were bonding so Burt talked to the lady and Napoleon was mine. They brought him over with his cage that evening. Napoleon is a wonderful companion and a wonderful bird. Napoleon is a sweet and loving bird who loves to give me kisses. He is constantly learning new words but won’t talk in front of Burt, when Burt leaves the room he starts talking or if he is with mom he talks…of course he doesn't like Burt or men for that matter. I am now complete...I have my grey...
Sky; Thank you for sharing such loving and touching facts about your bird family.
with my heart filled with love
