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)


17 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 silly friends. There's nothing in the bowl...but me.
This Pasta Bowl is my favorite perch to watch Dad make yummy things in the kitchen.
Dad loves when I'm there - he calls it "BIRD IN A BOWL" -he says he should serve me that way for lunch - then laughs.

Hello, EveryBirdie!
Dad is home from his trip to Kentucky for Mothers Day. Very happy to see him.
--
I am very happy to report that I was a joy for my bird-sitter, Kathy,
and had fun with visits from Uncle Geno as well.
= = =
Dad had a nice visit with Grandma including great food, and visits to the Cincinnati Art Museum and Cincinnati Symphony [Where Award Winning pianist, Evgeny Kissin, played Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2].

Grandma kept telling him he needs to lose weight, but kept feeding him and offering him fattening foods - his Mom is sweet but silly.

Happy Monday. Dad is packing and running around the house setting up "bird-care"stations.
He's nervous about leaving me w Aunt Kathy - they were both miserable to each other last time.
Dad will be gone 5 days, and is praying we all survive the duration.

Dad is visiting his Mom in Kentucky - and he'll be flying. He hates travel, hates flying, and hates being away from home.

Hello dear friends-

Dad's making preparations to leave on his short vacation. Of course it will not seem short for either of us.

Aunt Kathy, the Bird-Sitter, will be lookin in on me, and my dear Uncle Geno promises to visit as well, so they will help pass the time....but nothing's the same without Dad. It's gonna be tough.
I have Dad trained for when it's time for fruit, when it's time for seeds. . .
Dad keeps telling me to be nice - last time I was so sad and angry and everything else that I was miserable to the bird-sitter . . . .

Saturday was a nice day. Dad and Uncle Geno took a short drive into the country.

Dad busy cleaning, moving things, and getting things changed so men can measure front windows for much-needed replacement. The windows don't open and it gets oppressively hot here in the Summertime.

Hello, Baldrick -

A nice week here in Buffalo - warmer, with a little rain. Now it's going to be cooler, but not too bad.
--
Dad is making preparations for his May trip to see Grandma in Kentucky. He will be there for Mother's Day and on Derby Day as well. [I'm suggesting a flowered hat, but he doesn't like the idea].
When Grandma calls on Sunday I call to her, sometimes making their conversation hard to hear.
"I'm here, Grandma, it's me, Flitzer". She often wonders how Dad can live with me. Ha-Ha.
--
Aunt Kathy, the bird-sitter will be checking in on me, while Dad is away.
Last time, we were both miserable to each other. Dad is asking me to PLEASE TRY and be good. We shall see...

Hi. A perfectly wonderful weekend here in Buffalo.
Dad took me outside in the Travel Cage both Saturday and Sunday.
It was great seeing the outdoors and feeling the sun. We took a walk and visited friends in the neighborhood.

The Spring Milonga was fun, but Dad had to step away before the end, that's why I seemed silent for a while.

Flitzer's Dad here with the tale [tale] of an (almost) lost bird
- - - - - - - - - - -
The house got quiet - and I couldn't locate Flitzer. I looked everywhere, calling his name.
No sound. No response
--
I know he had been in the video cabinet - as my DVD Sleeve for "THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA" was shredded all over the place.

He did not make any sounds when I called, nor when I rattled the DVDS.

After searching the rest of the house - I started taking out DVDs from the cabinet. For sure he was hiding back there. Keeping perfectly still.

Thank Goodness he's OK - Sometimes it's tough being a Dad!

Sadly we're back to cold rain, high winds and threats of ice and snow.

Dad and Uncle Geno saw a great movie the other day: "REMEMBER" (Dir Atom Egoyan) STarring Christopher Plummer. We read disappointing reviews, but we thought the film was Excellent.
Being a "smaller" film, I'm sure it won't stick around very long. We highly recommend it.

hi Baldrick -

Dad made the mistake of putting jelly beans in the candy dish.
Well, I had to go over and taste-test them all for quality
- even the ones of the same color.
Now some are half-eaten and all others at least have a beak-mark in them.
Job Well Done.

Dad was generally plesed with The Oscars.
'SPOTLIGHT' was a good film and deserved Best Picture. Leonardo DiCaprio deserved an Oscar sometime - even if this wasn't his best performance. It would have been great to see Stallone win, but Rylance was wonderful in 'Bridge of Spies'.
The show itself was awful: Three hours of beating up on talented White People....not what The Academy Awards is about. We feel we deserve and award for enduring this mess.
3 hrs insulting Talented White People - and then - an Asian Stereotype Joke - - Really??
