  FIRST BIRD SPOTTED IN THE NEW YEAR
Many birders play a New Year's game called "Bird of the Year." The first bird you see on January 1st becomes your theme bird for that year—one to bless your perspective, your imagination, your spirit. don't be disappointed if your "bird of the year," is a European Starling. "As an urban dweller, turn to the starling as easily as any other bird for lessons in living with resilience and attunement to the natural world

  Hi Paddy and Piddy
Happy Chinese New Year Everybirdie! It's the Year of the Monkey, I wonder if that gives us all a chance to act like monkeys all year long? Congratulations to the Broncos, too. We didn't watch the game, but Lady Gaga did one great job with the National Anthem, and Beyonce did a fine halftime show. We tuned in to that to see Santana play a little.
Mom finished the Pterosaur book, watched the videos from the AMNH website, watched the Puppy Bowl, and even turned on the Fish Bowl for a few minutes.
Mom cleaned the mammal nursery today, with 3 squirrels and 2 possums, all adults. None of them was ready to go outside yet, though, they each need some extra care. The little flying squirrel has a stash of around 2 pounds of nuts that she's keeping in a pillowcase in her cage. Everyone is letting her keep them. We think when she gets released, she'll have a stash to start with in the spring.
Someone brought in a fennec fox! These guys are desert foxes who live in the Sahara. He said he found it on his back porch, didn't know what it was, and brought it to us. The poor little thing is emaciated and dehydrated, as well as blind in one eye. They are keeping him in the treatment room for now and trying to bulk him up a little. If he survives, we think he'll be going to the zoo or to some kind of sanctuary. It makes mom so angry when people take wild animals and try to make them pets. There are enough dogs, cats, and other animals who make good pets already.
It's supposed to snow here tonight through Wednesday, but we'll see what happens. Those guys are wrong probably more than they are right. I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches today. Hugs, Peppin0

  Hi Paddy and Piddy
She got it at Levin's out near Murraysville.
Mom made that joke about 20 minute lunch because for many years at school, that's all the time teachers got for lunch. Mom's lunch yesterday was longer than 20 minutes, they spent over 2 hours talking and looking at old and new pictures. Mom had a great time.
I haven't even looked at the new chair yet. Falco keeps going over there and getting chased off, though.
This morning mom had a tour with 4 year old kids again. They were there to learn about animals, and their chaperons insisted on the full hour tour! By the end of 45 minutes, mom's group and all the others she could see were getting restless, wandering off, talking to each other, etc, but mom, like the other docents, kept on going for the hour. Mom also found out that she can't take pics in the Pterosaur exhibit. She suspected as much, because the usual rule in the museum is that what belongs to them can be photographed, but not what doesn't. There is a nice book that mom will buy which goes along with the exhibit. Maybe we'll be able to share pics from there.
Now that she's home, mom is ours for the rest of the day. She got a load of laundry done the other day, so maybe today she'll get sheets and towels done, too. You never know...
I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Don't forget to submit your pics for the Valentine contest on the Milonga page. Voting starts tomorrow! Hugs, Peppino

  Hi Paddy and Piddy
The chair is here! Falco landed on it first thing, but mom chased her off. We don't know why. We'll post a pic later. Willie got 3 new toys for his hatchday, so he was happily making toothpicks last night.
Today we are writing a short blog, because mom is meeting a couple of other retired teachers for lunch. She has to be there at 11:30, so it sounds like the old days at school. We are hoping they will have more than 20 minutes to eat, haha! After that, she has a ton of errands to run. We need wild bird food, she needs to return a gift, check out what happened to her Barnes and Noble membership, get to the bird warehouse here and buy more pellets, and a few other things. We think she'll be gone all afternoon, even if lunch is only 20 minutes long.
I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of attention as is your right! Hugs, Peppino

  Crowds of 30,000 people now swarm Punxsutawney to watch Phil make his annual prediction. There could be some truth to the link between clear weather on Feb. 2 and a longer winter — since sunny days in winter are often caused by cold, dry air masses, and cloudy days tend to result from moist, mild ocean air. wild groundhogs in North America often hibernate into late February and March — suggesting they may know winter isn't over without even stepping outside on Groundhog Day.

the groundhog is the largest species of ground squirrel in North America.
They dig extensive burrows that can be up to 5 feet deep and 45 feet long and
are one of the few true hibernators, relying entirely on body fat to make it through winter. Their heartbeat slows from about 75 beats per minute to as few as 4, and their body temperature drops from the 90s into the 40s (Fahrenheit).
An internal biological clock controls when wild groundhogs wake up from hibernation, but their actual emergence from the burrow depends more on daily temperature than intuition.Even aside from dedicating a holiday to it, Americans and Canadians have been very good to the groundhog. The species was relatively scarce when Europeans first settled the continent, but as settlers fragmented forests to set up farms and towns, they created more of groundhogs' favorite habitat — the edge between open and woodland areas — while also killing wolves, cougars and other top predators. Although groundhogs thrived and expanded their range, however, they still usually try to avoid contact with people.

Wild groundhogs in North America often hibernate into late February and March — suggesting they may know winter isn't over without even stepping outside on Groundhog Day.
"Groundhog," "woodchuck" and even "whistle pig" are different names for the same animal — Marmota monax, the largest species of ground squirrel in North America.
Using only their teeth, claws and sturdy limbs, wild groundhogs dig extensive burrows that can be up to 5 feet deep and 45 feet long.
The name "whistle pig" comes from their noisy reactions to being disturbed, which include whistling, squealing, barking, chattering and grinding their teeth.
While most squirrels eat the reproductive parts of plants like seeds and nuts, groundhogs mainly graze on grass and leaves, but they sometimes eat insects, snails and bird eggs, too.

  Groundhog Day is coming
Phil is 130 years old, supposedly. The average groundhog lives to be between 6-8 years, but Phil takes a magical elixir every summer to extend his lifespan. The elixir also changes his appearance which explains why Phil may be grey one year and a youthful brown the next. the elixir does not work on humans. it just makes them fat and baldThe groundhog's name is Punxsutawney Phil, Seer of Seers, Sage of Sages, Prognosticator of Prognosticators and Weather Prophet Extraordinary.When Phil comes out of his stump on Gobbler's Knob on Groundhog Day, he has a conversation with the president of the Inner Circle of the Groundhog Club in Groundhogese. The president then announces Phil's prediction. he's never wrong, however,if the president doesn't translate Phil's prediction accurately -- which is why sometimes it looks like Phil got it wrong.

Phil weighs about 20 pounds. He is 22 inches long, while the average groundhog weighs 12-15 pounds and is 20 inches long.Phil has had many wives. While Phil has an extended lifespan, his wives do not partake in the elixir so they pass away like normal groundhogs do. Phil always finds love again, though. Phil's current wife is called Phyllis While there is nothing wrong with Phil reproductively Phil has no children - he and his wife decided they are really too busy to raise a family. But that doesn't mean he does not love kids.He considers everybody under 127 years old his kids. Phil has such a full schedule he was not able to partake in the filming of the movie. In the Bill Murray movie he is played by a groundhog named Scooter - who bit the actor three times during filming.Handling Phil is a dangerous Groundhog Day task because of his fondness for biting.He once threatened to impose 60 weeks of winter if he didn't get some booze during Prohibition. Oat and honey granola bars are Phil's favorite food, in particular Nature Valley ones.He has a special car called the Philmobile. It's a little bus that houses members of the Inner Circle. Phil has a special seat on the outside, so he can be seen on parades.Oftentimes during summer parades, crowds will panic as the Philmobile draws through because they will see Phil lying flat on his back, legs in the air looking dead. But he isn't, this is just how groundhogs cool off Some people get upset when he calls for six more weeks of winter,but it's not his fault that he sees that coming."

  n 1723, the Delaware Indians settled Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania as a campsite halfway between the Allegheny and the Susquehanna Rivers. The town is 90 miles northeast of Pittsburgh, at the intersection of Route 36 and Route 119. The Delawares considered groundhogs honorable ancestors. According to the original creation beliefs of the Delaware Indians, their forebears began life as animals in "Mother Earth" and emerged centuries later to hunt and live as men.
The name Punxsutawney comes from the Indian name for the location
"ponksad-uteney" which means "the town of the sandflies."
The name woodchuck comes from the Indian legend of "Wojak,
the groundhog" considered by them to be their ancestral grandfather.
When German settlers arrived in the 1700s, they brought a tradition known as Candlemas Day, which has an early origin in the pagan celebration of Imbolc. It came at the mid-point between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox. Superstition held that if the weather was fair, the second half of Winter would be stormy and cold. For the early Christians in Europe, it was the custom on Candlemas Day for clergy to bless candles and distribute them to the people in the dark of Winter. A lighted candle was placed in each window of the home. The day's weather continued to be important. If the sun came out February 2, halfway between Winter and Spring, it meant six more weeks of wintry weather.

If the sun made an appearance on Candlemas Day, an animal would cast a shadow, thus predicting six more weeks of Winter. Germans watched a badger for the shadow. In Pennsylvania, the groundhog, upon waking from mid-Winter hibernation, was selected as the replacement.
Pennsylvania's official celebration of Groundhog Day began on February 2nd, 1886 with a proclamation in The Punxsutawney Spirit by the newspaper's editor, Clymer Freas: "Today is groundhog day and up to the time of going to press the beast has not seen its shadow." The groundhog was given the name "Punxsutawney Phil, Seer of Seers, Sage of Sages, Prognosticator of Prognosticators, and Weather Prophet Extraordinary'' and his hometown thus called the "Weather Capital of the World.'' His debut performance: no shadow - early Spring.

The legendary first trip to Gobbler's Knob was made the following year.

The earliest American reference to Groundhog Day can be found at the Pennsylvania Dutch Folklore Center at Franklin and Marshall College:February 4, 1841 - from Morgantown, Berks County (Pennsylvania) storekeeper James Morris' diary..."Last Tuesday, the 2nd, was Candlemas day, the day on which, according to the Germans, the Groundhog peeps out of his winter quarters and if he sees his shadow he pops back for another six weeks nap, but if the day be cloudy he remains out, as the weather is to be moderate."

If the sun shines on Groundhog Day;
Half the fuel and half the hay.

  Hi again
Thanks for all the answers! They helped a lot! My dad doesn't use non stick pans or chemicals, but if the power ever goes out he uses candles. He better make sure he uses safe ones next time! My dad put millet spray in my cage and I was terrified of it! Is it better to get one or two if you want to train them? It would be cool to have a boy and a girl, but my dad wants them to be tame. some people say that if you keep two together they don't get as tame. Is that true? Also, how loud are they? Here's a vote!

Your pretty! My dad is thinking of getting a parakeet, and he would like to know if you have any information about them. Do they make good pets? How long does it take to tame and train them. If he wants to train them, Should he get one or two? He doesn't have too much time to spend with them, and he looked online and found that they need you to spend an Hour playing with them daily. That might not get done every day. How long do they live? Is it best to get them when their young? Come see me sometime. Here's a vote.

  we apologize for not being on bird channel these last few days. lots of problems with the internet. we did manage to blog a few but most of the time right in the middle of blogging we were losing the internet. calling comcast was useless since we could only talk to robots who couldn't understand anything mom was saying. it then would tell mom she could go on the internet to talk to them yet mom cpuldnt get on the internet. we also couldn't dvr any of the tv shows so mom was forced to watch the shows on demand and watch al the stupid commercials along with them. tonight when mom once again tried to get on bird channel the whole computer screen was covered in black lines. at this point mom unplugged the computer and let it rest and is now coming back to try once again.

we didn't win the power ball or even get 1 number. most startling news we heard today is that tens of thousands of dead bird bodies are washing up on the beaches of prince william sound in alaska. the birds are called Common Murre and appear to have starved to death suggesting disruptions of herring and other fish the birds eat. seabirds are indicators of the health of the ecosystem. climate change, the 1983 valdez oil spill in prince william or el nino weather patterns may or may not be the cause. scientist and biologist are rather alarmed at this point.

HAPPY TGIF DAY

  Hi P&P
My Dads back home from the VA. He is walking a little funny but getting around OK. (Cardio Ablation through the groin.)

I was on lock down for 3 days!! The bird sitter dont like to let us out cause we dont want to go back in our cages.

Dad gave us special treats this morning (grapes) with our regular fruits & veggies.

Cookie is having winter sports at the KB now. Grab your skies & go down a hill with us.

  we got about 3 inches of snow at our house. it didn't seem like a lot but it came down all at once. it seemed to hit our area harder than others. the roads werent even that bad but there were accidents all over the place because no one slowed down and when they tried to stop their cars they would just keep sliding. tomorrow will be on the low teens and then by Friday rain. the saga of dad and his winter jacket continues. dad took two of the jackets back to Macys tonight. mom will return 2 tomorrow. there are still 2 here and two more are coming by UPS. then dad will decide which one to keep. all the jacket colors are very drab and bland this year in ladies and mens styles.

tonight mom gave me that almond that i can't crack. i lost interest in it and threw it on the floor.

love Cori

  when mom was picking me up tonight to put me to bed she noticed my whole head was covered in pin feathers. mom felt bad because she has been working with Cori sp much she hadn't noticed before. mom quickly preened my head, which i didn't like at all and now i have feathers once again..

  yesterday mom decided to dremmel my beak and reshape it a little. it took mom over an hour and a half because i wouldn't cooperate and kept wriggling out of the towel she had me wrapped in. mom said after she was done that my beak looked much better but i didn't care. i was so angry at mom that when i sat on her shoulder i faced backwards towards the wall. tonight i was feeling much better and shredded the cardboard lid of a shoe box, cracked open an almond and ate it and then had a little banana for dessert. i have to admit my newly shaped beak is working pretty good.

  the rain stopped for the day but now its back again. they say it will snow tomorrow but it seems very warm outside right now.

i was.so hungry this morning i stepped right on my new perch and ate my breakfast. its harder to walk on than my wood perches. i can't just slide across it but actually have to grip it. mom says i need the exercise.

  we are getting lots of rain . its around 40 degrees. dad has been hunting for a winter jacket. so far we have three and 2 more are being shipped from Macys. after we have all the jackets dad will pick out what he likes and return the rest. some really good bargains going on right now. moms been going through closets and trying to get rid of things. so far she likes everything she has found. did manage to throw away 2 pair of shoes. its taking her forever and she not getting much done. mom moved the rope perch down in front of my food bowls thinking i would use it just to get to my food. well guess what? i didn't eat dinner tonight because i won't use it!

  as you know my health hasn't been the greatest but mom does all she can to get me back in shape. a few months ago we had a carbon monoxide poisoning in our home and at the time i quit flying completely. then after my molt instead of my feathers coming in green they all came in a drab maroon color and mom has been quite concerned. when ever mom or dad let me out of my cage during the day they had a tendency to forget i was loose because i just sat there. in the past week i have become more interested in flying around again and have been flying upstairs and to mom or dad. today after mom fed us our breakfast she was washing all the dishes and i decided to fly over to her. she was completely taken by surprise when i decided to jump into the soapy dishwater to take a bath.mom grabbed me and tried to rinse me off but i wriggled out of her hands and jumped back into the soapy dirty dishwater. mom got a better grip on me and took me down to the laundry room where i got a good rinsing off. even though i was a very bad girl mom was pleased to see i am now once again becoming interested in keeping up with my personal hygiene and am wanting to fly around again. keeping my toesies crossed that the next molt will once again also show pretty green feathers and not maroon.
HAPPY NATIONAL BIRD DAY
National Bird Day, an “unofficial” national holiday, was created to promote avian awareness.Nature lovers, bird lovers and bird watchers across the country annually recognize National Bird Day on January 5.National Bird Day is one of several designated “holidays” celebrating birds.

National Bird Day is a day to shine a spotlight on issues critical to the protection and survival of birds, both captive and wild, from disease and environmental factors to illegal trade and welfare of birds in captivity

The health of the global bird population is a reflection of and early warning system facing our wider ecological health. current research indicates that nearly 12 percent of the world’s almost 10,000 bird species are in danger of extinction in the current century..

  onight the bad budgie Paddy ignored Boo Boo and directed his attention on me.Boo Boo was relieved but now i know what she is talking about when the bad budgie bothers her. he kept buzzing my head over and over again. then when i was drinking my water he decided he wanted to drink with me and flew right over to the water dish. mom ended that very quickly. even Piddy Girl isn't that brave or dumb to do something like that.

love Cori and Boo Boo

  while mom was gone to celebrate the first day of the new year at Aunt Arlenes house dad was making me a meatball. he kept hearing something saying i love you. he looked at me and i looked back and said it wasn't me telepathically. then he looked at the bad budgies and they looked back every so innocently. as he gave me the meatball he kept hearing this i love you over and over again. finally he caught the very bad budgie Paddy who was pressing the i love you key on his little bird recorder whenever he thought dad wasn't looking. then Piddy went over and showed dad she can do it too. they are very bad but dad thought it was very cute.

  don't like the new perch. mom also rearranged all the other perches in my cage and i don't like that either. i don't see why i can't just sit on mom all the time.

love Cori

the storm missed us and it was fairly mild today at about 47. mom says i am feeling nice and chubby.

  thankyou for all your information about how good the rope perches are. i really value your opinion and others on bird channel. i still won't use the perch but will hang in front of it by 1 toe nail attached to the top of my cage and swing there like a bat. mom says it might take me a while for me to get used to it. mom says i am like an old dog thats hard to teach new tricks.
