Hi! My name is Baldrick Thank you for BOTD 3/20/14

I am a Nanday Conure from Newton, NJ.

Balders, Mr Baldrick, The Boys(because he co-habits with Charlie), Goodfeathers(be- cause he acts like a Nanday Mafiosi)
Baldrick's Hatchday is 8/15(for actor Tony Robinson who played my namesake in the Blackadder Series)


16 years old   M

Nanday Conure

Pasta, fresh oranges, orange juice, Saltines and Cheese-Its

I love to hang out in the townhouse on top of our cage, inside cardboard boxes wtih Charlie.

Foods that I find offensive I run away from. I also am very protective of my preen buddy Charlie Daniels

Mom just overindulges me. Food, toys, attention, can't be beat.

This little guy will disassemble any structure you give them--he is a conure "chop shop"-Baldrick has smuggled a phillips head screwdriver in somewhere, because he is very adept at removing screws
I like companionship. I came to this flock with a cagemate Captain Kevin Darling who left me after 10 years for Samantha Carter. Teal'c and I became cagemates however after 7 years I could no longer tolerate his bossiness, chewing off my flight feathers, so I left him for Charlie Daniels, the Cherry Head Conure

  Flitzer Midweek
Tuesday evening Dad and Uncle Geno went to a special event at Parkside Candies.
The evening included 'Make Your Own Sundaes' at the ice cream counter and a tour of the candy factory. Much of the original equipment from 1927 is used to make all kinds of candies.
They even gave 20% discount on candies bought that evening.
A great time! [Cue 'Willy Wonka' music].
Fortunately Dad did NOT get turned into a giant blueberry!

Cappy asks if I'm back to normal now - yes, no more sore spot - I'm feeling great. Thank you.

HAPPY MONDAY, BC FREINDS
Rainy all day Saturday and Sunday this weekend.

Dad and his friend, Paul, went to see "A LITTLE CHAOS" with Kate Winslet and Alan Rickman.
Good simple story - good acting. Kinda fun on a rainy Saturday afternoon.

Uncle Geno was over on Sunday. He and Dad are up to Season 5 of "Mad Men". Dad hadn't seen it before, and they're doing a marathon together of the whole series.

Happy Friday. A beautiful day here today - sadly it's supposed to be cold and heavy pouring rains all weekend.

Dad got the toilet fixed (silly flimsy workings never hold up very long) and all is well.
--
Dad and friends went to a local little theater last night to see a production of the musical "THE WILD PARTY". A fabulous show presented by a local theater group. They had front-row seats so it was like they were in the middle of the wild party itself. Dad behaved himself and didn't get up to sing and dance. A fun night at the theater.

On Tuesday Dad was gone a good deal of the day, taking friends across town to the doctors.
Afterwards they all went to the pancake house for food.
--
In the afternoon, Dad joined a couple friends to see the film "LOVE AND MERCY" about Brian Wilson.
Bad rains for the drive and doctor visits, then bright sunshine when they were inside for the movie - isn't that the way they say it goes.

Dad and Uncle Geno were here in the evening, so I did get some time with both of them.

Hi, Friends
Saturday was the start of Dad's favorite weekend of the year -
The Allentown Art Festival -this was the 58th year for this huge outdoor festival of arts, crafts and food along the streets of the Allentown District in Buffalo, NY. Artists come from all over to be in this prestigious event.
Besides art, of course there is food, crowds, babies in strollers, dogs on leashes and the joy of Summer finally coming to the Buffalo area.

Nothing particular for birds, but the weekend gets Dad in good spirits, which is always nice.
Have a great day. ~Wings Up~

This process has to be followed.

Step 1: Ignore it - this may go for a week

Step 2: Be Afraid of it - *Squawk* and fly away if I get near it.

Step 3: Test it out when Dad is not looking

Step 4: Love it

Our Sunday movie: "THE WAGES OF FEAR" (1953)

Some have asked about my photo. In this photo I am on a birdie-dish having a treat:
"Flitzer Coffee" A touch of coffee with a drop of milk and whipped cream. It is a favorite treat.
The Soy Sauce behind me is simply where Dad keeps it, as he uses Soy instead of Salt when he is cooking.

Monday evening, Dad shared a favorite movie on DVD "AFTER HOURS" (1985 directed by Martin Scorsese). It's a very "different" dark comedy.

Dad and friends took a Road-Trip to Rochester, NY on Thursday.
It was a beautiful day for a drive. Shopping, Visiting a Friend and dinner for the Best Thai Food in Western New York. ['The King and I' in Henrietta, NY]

At Daddy's request, one of the stops was 'Birds Unlimited' - a wonderful huge bird store.
[although Dad did let a beautiful turquoise green-cheek flirt with him, he knows that I'm the Bird, and always comes home to me]

Uncle Jim, Uncle JJ and Uncle Geno all bought me something special - as well as Dad.

I haven't seen all of my surprises as yet. I'm grateful to have such thoughtful friends.

We had a funny moment this morning. I stepped up on Dad's hand and he was taking me to my morning poop place when...
Dad sneezed.
It scared me - so I flew off his hand and across the room - where I pooped in a "wrong" place.
It's All Daddy's Fault.

  Flitzer Biography
Happy Sunday, BC Friends.
Since Dad lives in an apartment, he was looking for a "relatively quiet" bird.
Previously he had only cared for a parakeet -who was handicapped.
--
Dad considered a clutch of 4 birds at the local bird store, which is about 45 min away from home.

The first time Dad tried to hold me I bit bit bit, to show him who was boss, but later visits I was calm and kind and loving.

I was the eldest and decided I wanted him. I waited patiently as Dad was attracted to the others, but he was Mine and I let him know that I was "The Bird".
--
I was hatched in August and was supposed to go to Dad's home in November, but Dad had a bad fall when he moved Oct 31st, and that was delayed until mid-December.
Dad had my name chosen early on. Flitzer is German meaning "To Streak or Move Very Fast".
He named me after a Roller Coaster called "The Flitzer", a favorite in his childhood.

Dad has broken up some of the huge Roudybush pellets, but also leaving some of the big ones -he's trying to find out if I'll eat them - so far the answer is "no"....but I'm thinking about it.
[He does have a bag of the right size pellets, but would like to see me eat some from what he has already opened]
