  Hi Paddy and Piddy
Mom went with her niece to see the opera last night. The scenery was really cute, it looked very 2 dimensional, and was mostly drawn onto a white background, so looked very childlike and unsophisticated. The music was typical Stravinsky, mom liked it a lot. In fact, she enjoyed the music more than the singing, because the music was playful in spots. The cast was very well matched vocally, and the chorus did a bang up job! For an opera written in 1951, it was pretty good. Mom doesn't usually like contemporary works like that. They had dinner at Nicky's Thai Kitchen before the performance, too.
Today mom has to do a 3 hour spotlight at the new pterosaurs in Dinosaur hall. They are cicnorhamphus, and they are hanging above the hall. Mom thinks she'll be on the second floor balcony, so people can see them better. They are pretty cool pterosaurs, have beaks that indicate they were filter feeders, something like flamingos.
I think after the museum, mom will head to Barnes and Noble, then come home. I hope you are having a good day there. It's gloomy here, and raining off and on. Get lots of cuddles and scritches today. Hugs, Peppino

Mom goes to Family Eye Care Associates, usually in Penn Hills, but this doctor doesn't go to Penn Hills, so she had to go to New Kensington. The MapQuest directions were all messed up.
Thanks for the vote, hope you are having a good day. Paddy, you need to quit tearing down the house, haha. Hugs, Peppino

  Hi Paddy and Piddy
Here's Falco's update from the vet visit: I had another visit with Dr. Pleban yesterday afternoon, and she says I'm healing quite nicely. All my meds are done, and she said I don't need any more. I have several feathers growing in, the scab on the inside of my leg is gone, and the big one on the outside is looking good. She says everything is moving right along. She left my little turtleneck collar on, and wants to see me next week. She made the appointment, to make sure her staff knows that when she says one week, that's what she means.
My appointment yesterday was at 3:30, which put us in the middle of rush hour traffic again, but mom chose a different route home, so the trip home only took 40 minutes, not 80 like last week. Next week my appointment is 2:40, so we shouldn't hit any traffic there or back except for school buses. Hugs, Falco
Today it's raining hard out there, but of course the dogs still wanted a walk. It's funny, because they hide under the overhang on the deck when mom puts them out in the rain, but they'll walk on leads right out in the rain! Mom got wet, too, even though she was carrying an umbrella. It's a spring rain, though, so it will be good for the flowers. Temps are mid 50s, it feels like.
Mom is getting that laser treatment on her eyes today, we think. She doesn't know if he'll do both eyes today or not, but we're kind of hoping he does, just to get it over with.
I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of sunshine, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

  well mom over did it again. today she started on the 2nd hillside. she got 7 50lbs bag full of leaves. that wasn't the hard part. it was dragging the leaves up the hill that did her in. she slipped and ripped open her shin on a rock. she was so exhausted from dragging the leaves up the hillside she never finished the last bag. the blood on her shin dried and her stuck her jeans to her leg. the good news is their was no tear on her jeans. she was so exhausted she didn't even wash up afterwards. she just got dad his dinner and watched tv all night. i soent the evening pulling all the sticks and leaves out of moms hair. it was a dirty job but somebody had to help her.

love Cori

  Hi Paddy and Piddy
It's a bit warmer today than it was yesterday. It's around 70 and sunny right now. Mom went to the bird show this morning, and it was pretty good. She bought some new sea grass mats with toys on them, some poop off, many other toys (of course), and a huge bag of fresh chop. The chop was being sold fresh to benefit a parrot rescue group, so mom was happy to contribute. The lady making it made an immense plastic bin full! She put in more things than mom cuts up every day, so we're going to try it with Maxine and we boys. Mom might give Falco some too, to see if she'll eat it.
She got to see 2 presentations at the bird show, one on how to make chop, and one about the new rescue in our area. They had lots of birds with them, including 2 adorable nandays and a galah that mom was really admiring. I have to say that she came home with lots of stuff, but no new birds. This place offers foster opportunities though, so she's thinking about that. There were the usual raffles going on, as well as a huge raffle for an outdoor aviary. Mom did not buy tickets for that one, though! She'd never get it put up outside.
When she left the show, she stopped at Moio's, a local Italian bakery, to take some goodies to Aunt Ginny who is recovering from pneumonia. Mom was her first company, although her adult kids have been with her every day and evening for the past 2 weeks. They had a nice visit, then mom came back here and divided the chop into some smaller containers for the freezer. It's supposed to be good frozen for 3 months. She is really hoping we'll eat it.
Here's Falco's update: The vet called yesterday and changed my appointment to this week. She had wanted to see me in a week, but the front desk made the appointment for 2 weeks instead, due to availability (mom's and the vet's). So, I'm going in this Wednesday at 3:30, which means another trip in rush hour traffic to return home, but it's all good. Mom says as long as I'm getting better, that's what counts. We can sing in the car on the way home. Hugs, Falco
I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

Sorry to mislead you, Sugar told us that Lumina IS i5.

I'm just writing a very short note today because mom had to get a shot in her eye this morning and can't see to type. She has a court date tonight for traffic court, too, so we're hoping the dilation has worn off by then and she can see to drive downtown. She's fighting a parking ticket which was issued for a ridiculous reason. It's getting cloudy outside, but the temps are still nice and warm. Hope you are having a good day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

Willie is in the Kissing Booth for the next 2 weeks, so visit him there, as well as here on his page. If you want a turn, please please let Ms. BB and her dad know! Mom did Willie's KB pic this time, so if you need help making a KB pic, mom can do one for you.
Mom cleaned the avian nursery today. It's still pretty sparsely occupied, only an adult sparrow, robin, 2 pigeons and 2 doves, as well as 2 doves in one of the incubators. It went well, and pretty quickly. Mom also got to feed the baby raccoons. There are only 2 of them, but it was a treat for her after so long.
After the center, she went for a mani/pedi. The new color is blue, with designs on the toes and fingers. Mom got blue tips on her fingers with purple and pink flowers. It looks pretty good.
After she got done at the nail place, she went to the Giant Eagle to buy some goodies for us, berries, and such. Jenny, her nail tech, told her a new yogurt place opened, so she walked over to see that, too. She bought a container of frozen yogurt, but for as much as she paid for it, she could have bought a 48 ounce ice cream! Still, it was worth seeing. They do fruit smoothies there, too, so maybe next time, mom will try one of those.
I hope you are having a great day today. It's in the low 80s here! Of course this won't last even until the end of the week, but it still feels good while we have it.
Tomorrow mom is doing the lesson for the new docent class on Polar mammals and birds, then Falco's appointment at the vet is at 3:30. If we're not on in the afternoon, we'll let everybirdie know how it went tomorrow night. I hope you are having a great day today, and getting some attention, cuddles and scritches! Hugs, Peppino

  mom was cleaning our cages today and Paddy and Piddy escaped and the first thing thy=ey did was fly over to my cage and all i could see was their Oh Oh's when i looked up. it was not a pretty sight. mom ignored them since chasing them never works and finished cleaning the cages and then put a super huge sprig of millet in their cage and after about 1/2 an hour they went right back in.mom was outside working today trying to get the yard cleaned up. it was a beautiful sunny 76 outside. while dad was in the back blowing leaves into a pile for mom to put in bags, mom decided to get the fountain cleaned out. she started pulling all the leaves out of it and found a dead bird inside. it had no head or body just it wings. from the color of the wings it appeared to be a female cardinal. at first mom thought it might have hit a window and crawled into the fountain for safety but if that happened then where did its head go? mom now thinking maybe a cat killed it, ate the head and body and buried the wings under the leaves in the fountain. all the feathers on the wings were still attached and didn't looked broken or anything. maybe it did crawl int the fountain and died and then the head and body were eaten by bugs and critters. very sad and strange.

  mom went to the grocery store to buy a boneless , skinless chicken breast in the meat deli. mom told the butcher she wanted the chicken breast and pointed out which one she wanted. the butcher then picked up the chicken breast and cut it in half. mom said i didn't want it cut in half i wanted the whole chicken breast. the butcher said most people don't know this is a whole chicken breast. mom said i don't care what most people want i want the whole chicken breast. the butcher said well its buy one chicken breast and get one free. mom said fine but actually you are selling me 1/2 a chicken breast and giving me the other half free so how am i saving any money. the butcher said i will give you another breast and mom said no just give me the whole chicken breast. then when mom got home and was cutting up thepieces of chicken tonight with cutlery scissors and accidently also cut one of her fingers. she immediately washed it off and then poured hydrogen peroxide on it and tried to stem the blood flow with a napkin while trying to get the dumb bandaid out of the package. it was almost impossible to get the bandaid out. there was blood everywhere. what is the purpose of having bandaids so tightly packaged you almost have to cut them in half just to remove them from the packaging. mom finally got it out and dried the blood off of her finger and quickly put it on. its a good thing. the cut is in a place where overtime mom moves her finger it starts bleeding again. anyway the chicken is cut up cooked and frozen and then will be thawed out as needed for us and the cats mom is grateful Cori didn't see the band aid and attack moms finger this evening. Cori doesn't like things like that.

HAPPY HUMPDAY

  dad helped mom on saturday to place the new cage on the stand and screw it all together. dad thinks the cage is great but mom is very upset because it seems so much smaller than Boo Boos other cage. mom spent the afternoon placing her perches just right so she can jump from one perch to another. mom then hung all her toys up, filled the food bowls and placed Boo Booin the new cage. it didn't bother her at all. i don't know why mom is so upset. mom keeps measuring the cage to determine why it seems so much smaller. its about 1-1/2 inches shorter in width than the old cage. with everything on moms mind you wouldn't think this would bother her but she can't even sleep and keeps checking on me to see if Boo Boo is ok. perhaps other things are building in moms small brain and she is focusing them on the cage. the cage is white and the other cage was cream colored so maybe that is making the cage appear smaller or maybe mom is just losing her mind. kings cage is suppose to be a very good cage and dad keeps telling mom she is nuts. also there were sections in the old cage that were completely rusted through but not in any area where Boo Boo could reach .

dad now has a rash completely covering his body and had mom rub cream on it which dad said made him unbearably itchy so mom has to wash it all off. dad spent the day at another retina specialist and had to cancel his dermatologist appointment. these things always happen just when mom is getting ready to blog for us.

  Hi Paddy and Piddy
Aw, you two look so cute!
The opera yesterday was really well done. It's usually done as a 19th century period piece, but the staging for this one was 40s to early 50s Hollywood! There were people watching screen clips when the curtain rose during the overture, and they actually showed the Bugs Bunny cartoon which used that music! The audience cracked up! Later, there were many references in costumes, behavior, and movie posters to things like the Marx Brothers (one of the main characters dressed like Harpo, and so did the tenor at one point: they did the I Love Lucy thing!), Charlie Chaplin, Singing in the Rain, and a bunch of other neat things. All in all, it was a fun time. When they were leaving, Mom lost her phone, so her sister parked on the street while she went back into the theater to see if she could find it. She looked where she was sitting, but it wasn't there. She went into the lobby, was talking to an usher, and another usher came up to her and asked: Is this it? It was! Someone had turned it in. Mom was so relieved.
Today at the center, she was assigned the bunny room, along with another volunteer. They had most of the cages cleaned, when a staff person came in to get some for release. They released about 15 bunnies! Mom and the other volunteer got to help round them up and release them. They were then able to get some of the ones from smaller carriers into the large cages, and get rid of about 6 small dog carriers that way. The room looks a lot neater now, but if mom is right, there will be a whole bunch more bunnies soon. At least for a little while, the room won't look so crowded.
It's a gloomy looking, rainy day so far, but rain is better than snow. I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches too. Hugs, Peppino

Pics will come when mom gets them into the computer. The water heater is in, so we can do laundry today.
We're all writing short blogs today because mom has so much to do. She has to shop for fresh fruits and veggies for us, get some laundry done, and she has 2 tours at the museum today, too. Tomorrow we have a vet appointment for the doggies, then mom has an eye appointment in the afternoon. We will get tomorrow's blogs done between the two appointments. Mom still has Irish nails, heehee! She will have to get those done soon, too. Then Saturday is the baby shower for the wildlife center, and Sunday afternoon is the opera. Mom's next day off is next Thursday, and she'll sure be ready for it!
I hope you are having better weather than we are, it's cold and gloomy looking today, and mom had to wear a jacket when she walked the girls this morning.

!we sure have missed talking to everybody. we apologize for not being on bird channel for all these days. moms just been a little over whelmed with things and doesn't want to bore everyone with the details. mom took dad to the hospital at 4am tuesday morning for his heart catherization. he was prepared to stay in the hospital because the doc felt he should have more stents put in his heart. it dropped down to 20 degrees that morning with 2 inches of snow. you woulnt believe all the car accidents on the road because since its been warm and then got cold all the snow turned to solid ice. mom dropped dad off and came home to feed the cats and birds. she couldn't drive any faster than 5 mies an hour because she kept sliding but she preserved and made it home ed everyone and then wired for the hospital to call. they clued and said to come and pick dad up because he didn't need anything done and by the time she went bak to the hospital all the snow and ice had melted but joe biden was in town so there was a huge traffic jam and the main road was closed because of bridge work. dad will then have lots of tests done on his head and eyes to determine what needs to be done. then since mom is power of attorney over g-ma there are quite a few problems and g-mss investment company UBS told mom if something isn't done with g-mss money she will be broke in 2 years. g-m wrote a check in one month for $34,000 and no one knows why so mom needs to keep a copy of g-ms will and power o attorney and start investigating what is happening to g-ma's money and who is writing the checks. UBS charges $6000 a year just to invest g-ma's money and g-ma is steadily losing money with them every year then g-ma is writing a check to some church for $1000./mo and she doesn't have the money. mom is also going to the assisted living facility and getting a itemized statement on everything they are billing g-ma for since supposedly everything was already paid for in one lump sum when g-ma moved in there.

the house is over run with ants. we have never had a problem like this before. mom cleans our cages everyday. when mom changes Cori soft food her cup is full of ants but you never see any crawling into the cage. there has never been one ant found in MY cage because I AM ON THE BALL and destroy them on sight. if it wasn't for the cats mom would let me loose and that would solve the ant problem. i am the destroyer of all crawly things.

Mom says it's good to be home. Falco was a brat with Bree, wouldn't let her clean the cage grate. She texted mom and was worried, but mom told her to clean what she could, and mom would handle the rest after she got home.
Mom had a wonderful week in FL with Aunt Jane, Uncle Bill, and Chyna. She was flattered that Chyna actually let her play with her and pick her up this time. Mom came home to a broken water heater, though, so we're working on getting that fixed today. The good news is that it happened last night, so Bree and all of us had all the hot water we needed. Mom will give more details about the trip as time goes on, and will post some pics, too.
For today, we're just glad to be back online and happy to see everybirdie. I hope you are having a great day today, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Falco is in the KB for the next 2 weeks, so she hopes to see you there! Hugs, Peppino

  rainforests are key to fighting climate change

As children, trees were our magical companions. They gave us cool shade in the summer, trunks to climb, and branches to birdwatch. And they’ve never forgotten us:
1)1 tree can convert as much as 48 lbs of carbon dioxide into clean air per year.
2)Some rainforests provide a home to 15,000 species in a single acre.
3)A mature tree can reduce peak summer temperatures by up to 9° Fahrenheit.
But trees are falling at an alarming rate and every living thing that depends on them is in jeopardy

67,000 ACRES OF RAINFOREST DESTROYED PER DAY

We must restore our connection with trees
The United Nations has acknowledged that trees cool temperatures, sequester greenhouse gases, and purify air and water. Now we must actively work together to conserve them in order to combat climate change – and protect the planet.

  Trump Comb-over Protected as Habitat for 300 Endangered Species

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service this week confirmed rumors that the comb-over wilderness atop the pate of presidential contender Donald J. Trump is indeed "critical habitat" for more than 300 endangered species. Among them is a rare subspecies of mite, Pityrosporum ovale, with an uncanny ability to survive in white-hot proximity to hubris, shamelessness and maximum buffoonery.

The Greater Trump Tundra ("The greatest ecosystem you're ever going to see, absolutely the BEST," Mr. Trump says), is also reportedly home to two species of owls, a jumping mouse, a flightless flying squirrel, three kinds of blind salamanders and a spotted frog. All are endemic to the region and spend their entire lifespan in Trump's face and coiffure, where they hatch, eat, mate and ultimately die. All have evolved to become completely deaf, a mutation scientists speculate is vital to their survival.

HAPPY APRIL FOOLS DAY

  mom was gathering up all my treasures i have hidden all over the room so she doesn't vacuum them up and found that one of the treasures i had hidden in one of my many hiding spots was a hairball from one of the cats. mom says what is junk to one is often a treasure to someone else.

  a farmer pulls a prank on Easter Sunday
after the easter egg hunt the farmer sneaks into the chicken coop and replaces every egg with a brightly colored one. minutes later the Rooster walks into the chicken coop and spots the colored eggs. the Rooster then storms outside and beats up the Peacock.

  In response to Alaska’s massive common murre die-off in January 2016, John Piatt, a research wildlife biologist at the U.S. Geological Survey’s Alaska Science Center, said he didn’t know what the future held in store for common murres. Sadly, this seabird die-off saga has just taken a plot twist for the worst: Another 6,000 to 8,000 common murres were recently discovered in another massive Alaskan die-off — in the most peculiar location.In the beginning of 2016 an estimated 8,000 emaciated (dead and alive) common murres washed ashore a beach in Whittier, Alaska.It looked like many of the birds had starved to death, but why couldn’t they find food to nourish themselves? It’s not an easy answer, but the two leading theories at the time were:
1. “Warmer water surface temperatures, possibly due to global warming or the El Nino weather pattern’” could be impacting the murre’s prey fish. Once the temperature goes beyond a certain point, many fish will move on or die.
2. Harsh winter storms that made hunting more difficult for the birds.

in the Most Recent Die-offt he seabirds didn’t wash ashore on a beach like they did before. This time, the thousands of dead birds were found over 12 miles on a freshwater lake (Lake Iliamna) — even though the birds prefer the ocean during the winter.it is believed that the murres couldn’t find food in the Pacific Ocean and flew to Lake Iliamna to eat salmon smolt. its unusual that the lake itself wasn’t frozen.
Seabirds, like common murres, are barometers that scientists use to gauge the health of marine ecosystems.

John Piatt agrees that something’s not right, “We’ve talked about unprecedented things about this die off. To have 6,000, 8,000 birds in the lake is pretty mind-blowing, really. I’ve never heard of any such a thing anywhere in the world.”
The latest death toll between the die-off events and independent cases is 36,000. Let that sink in: 36,000 dead common murres !While researchers continue to try to solve this common murre die-off crisis, they continue to be thrown for a loop, “We don’t even know what we don’t know,” Piatt says.

  Hi
i guess i m a little hormonal now. mom sat down with her coffee to read the pper and i was sitting on my cage preening. after a little while i flew over to mom. mom wasn't concerned because i fly over to her every morning and sit in her hair and then try to get coffee. today i bypassed moms hair and latched on to her earlobe. mom screamed because she said it hurt and tried to knock me off with a paper towel roll. finally i let go. mom is grateful i didn't crush the cartilage like i have in the past. mom pt me back in my cage and locked the door.

the big fad going on now is flying drones. lots of people are now able to get closer and closer to wildlife to get pictures using the drones. drones are dangerous to wildife. the propellor blades whirl very fast and drone flyers have lost fingers because of them. video on you tube of hawks attacking drones is very dangerous because of the serious injury implications to the hawk. when the drone flys at wildlife and they can't get away they will attack the drone. i guess this is what people want to happen and so they are chasing and harassing the wildlife to get their videos and pictures. incidents of drones being flown close to nesting birds like eagles have also been reported in the Philadelphia area which could potentially cause the parents to abandon the nest and babies.hunters are also now using drones to find out where to kill their prey. PETA was flying drones to monitor illegal hunting activities in Pennsylvania. the hunters complained that PETA had no right to harass them. when PETA found out the drones where upsetting the wildlife like bears they stopped using them. they replied to the hunters that hunting would be much more traumatic to the wildlife since the main goal is to stalk and kill them. Pennsylvania tried to pass laws preventing drone use in hunting but the laws didn't pass. they have signs posted in state and national parks saying it is illegal to fly drones in there but people are ignoring the signs and still harassing and disturbing wildlife. if an area is posted as illegal to enter then if you enter by using a drone you are breaking the law and will receive substantial fines if you are caught. other states are having no problems passing laws prohibiting drone use.
