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

Hello from King Flit-Flit!

Dad and Uncle Geno watched two movies in a row the other night:
The first film, "SAFETY LAST" (1923) with Harold LLoyd -they couldn't stop laughing.
--
The second film, "THE NORMAL HEART" (about AIDS) -they couldn't stop crying.
Humans are silly creatures.

..................
Cool but sunny today. Dad is going to the first Cookout of the Season with friends.
Hope he brings back something yummy for me.

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.

Dad went to see "While We're Young" starring Ben Stiller last night - a quirky little comedy.

  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.

We had some great Daddy-n-Bird Time on Thursday. In fact I visited Dad in his bedroom at nap time {I rarely go in there} As he rested he rubbed my back and I squawked happily.
These times of affection are rare but wonderful.

Dad had his friend, JJ, over last night and we watched Alfred Hitchcock's "Notorious" (1946).

Happy Thursday. Cold mornings here, but afternoons are getting sunny and warm.
Seedless grapes today - hurray, a toy and a food in one.
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]

I wake up to discover that Dad bought the wrong bird pellets. All my life I have eaten Roudybush "Minis" ...these fresh pellets are Roudybush "Small". They're huge.

Haven't decided yet weather to turn my beak up at these huge ugly things. Dad is not near any place that carries my pellets so he is going to have to journey for them or order them -so it may be a few days until I get the right ones.
Silly human.

  Flitzer - Daddy has a bad start for his day
Locked Out!

Due to poor policy regarding keys [they never give keys to ANY of their staff] , nobody could enter the gym today.
This used to happen a lot - and we have begged Management to give a key to the Trustworthy morning staff. They refuse to do so.
Sadly, Dad has a very busy day with no opportunity to return later today.

We had a gorgeos Sunday. Dad invited his friend Geno to lunch and we shared lemon cookies.
I don't normally like people other than Dad, but Geno is really great. He's my new buddy.

Later Geno and Dad went to see "THE SOUND OF MUSIC" at the Theater. Sadly the place is not 'bird-safe' so I had to stay home. I do love when we see "The Sound of Music" at home, so I can sing along.

He called me over to share some, but I was in the middle of a project. Again, a little later he called to me. Nope. I'm Busy.

About 10 minutes later I was done and ready to eat...the dish was empty. Wha? You didn't save me any? I looked up at him sadly. The pig had eaten it all. Fine - Fly Away -- {flap flap flap}

  Hi Baldrick
and Teal'C of course, Thanks for the congratulations. I had a great time in the castle with Queen Booboo, we hid Easter eggs all over the place. Hope you find some, they had some neat prizes inside.
Mom had 14 for dinner today, and they began to arrive around noon. Dinner was served at 2, and there was plenty of food for everyone. Mom sent home care packages with nearly everybody, too. People were gone by 8, so we have a little time to blog. Hope your Easter day was all you wanted it to be and that you had a good celebration.
Mom has an eye appointment in the morning, so we may not get online until later in the day tomorrow. Hope you got lots of cuddles and scritches today. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Peppino, Divo & Falco.
