My bird was up for adoption at the pet store. I was told he was injured so they could not sell him. They were giving him to someone that would give him a good home. When I saw him, I knew he needed to come home with me. Chipper is doing great now!

  Hi Chipper, from Queen Angel Christy
This morning when our daddy finally finished the morning paper changing route and food and water dishes, he sat down and powered up this cursed machine! He was so not ready to see his beloved Angel in the BOTD spotlight, he almost lost it! He had just came back inside from his morning prayers at her grave, today will be a solemn day of celebration at our home! There are certainly more beautiful birds in the world, but none was ever more loved, sadly, there can NEVER be another Christine! We have another fabulous day here in Rock Island, give our love to all in your great home, see ya tomorrow...

Love from Queen Angel Christy, Jenny Lynn, & our loving family

PS~We are all so proud of our Toos, their only demand is to be talked to, loved, played with, and have us spend time with them, that don't seem like to much to ask....

It's Alex.
Yes, mom and dad did eat the roast. They don't like to waste food. They'll know better, next time.
The weather wasn't that bad, yesterday. Mom and dad needed to send a letter to the bank's corporate headquarters, regarding the way their fraud case was handled, or should say, "mishandled". It took most of the afternoon to complete so no outside work for dad and no police station for mom. For dinner, mom sautéed some fish and dad picked up some soup, appetizers and veggies at their local Chinese restaurant.
Mom may work at the police station today and dad says he must mow the front lawn. Dad does need to pick up food at the Magnolia bird farm this week.
Today will be about the same as yesterday. Partly cloudy with a high of 92 and a low of 66.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Alex.

It's cool here today, don't expect the temps to go much above 70. If that's the case, mom will probably scrub the porch railings, since she finally found the Simple Green she was looking for. It's a good cleaner for the outdoor stuff. Of course, if it gets warmer, that plan will die in favor of the pool. It's open for such a limited time, mom likes to take advantage of every day she can go. Labor day is coming too soon! Nothing much else going on; Mom has a tour coming up tomorrow at the museum, and Thursday is the big eye appointment. Gene will be going back to Germany on Saturday, so she'll probably go visit him on Friday. Other than that, the week is a slow one, but we're never bored, and neither is mom. Hope you are having a great day and getting lots of sunshine and scritches. Hugs, Falco

It rained and stormed last night and today some too. It has cooled off a lot and mom said too cool for me to go out today even between the raindrops! Since moms cousin is recuperating from her surgery and is off work her and mom have been chatting back and forth a lot. Moms cousin just lives next door and loves to sew and joined a quilt club and keeps showing mom things she has made. I know mom is wanting to do a quilt project but keeps saying where to find the time with all her other craft projects she has going on. Maybe that will be a winter project and I will help her with it I am sure LOL. “I have learned its not what I have in life but who I have in my life that counts.“ Leaving a vote for you …your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Heya, Chipper!
Mom's meeting at the other campus went well. She got up really early--and then she expected me to be up, too. HA! I was happily sleeping when she uncovered me. Did I give her a dirty look too! I gave her a little grief when she came to take me over to the playgym. Of course, I was sweet after that. But hey, that was super early this morning! Was glad when she got home, and I could velcro myself to her.

Chilly day here, but sunny. Mom says it is good sleeping weather. And I know I will be ready for it whenever she is!

I gave my mom a tough time about going outside this morning, but I finally gave in and climbed on her shoulder so she could carry me over to my outside carrier. Once there I had no problem climbing right in; I just didn't want to be interrupted in my meditation I was doing on my big swing. Anyway we got out there at 8:45 and it was a bit cloudy which meant it was not overwhelmingly hot yet. High today in the 90s again, so it's a good thing I didn't mess around too long. By the time Mom got home from the gym at 12:30 it was way too hot. In fact, Mom doesn't plan to leave the house again today. Works for me!!

  Hi Chipper
Hi everybirdie, Zeena here with Monday's BOTM POST. Today we visit a beautiful song bird making a new comeback in homes around the globe. The Pekin Rokin, a song bird of extraordinary talent. I wish to thank all my many friends for their votes and stopping to leave comments on my page. I read them all.
The Red-billed Leiothrix or PEKIN ROBIN (Leiothrix lutea) is usually found in India, Bhutan, Nepal, Burma and parts of Tibet. This species is a bird of the hill forests, found in every type of jungle though it prefers pine forests with bushes. It has also been found at elevations ranging from near sea level to about 7,500 feet.

The species was introduced to the Hawaiian Islands in 1918 and spread to all the forested islands except Lanai. Its population on Oahu crashed in the 1960s and it disappeared from Kauai, but is now common and increasing on Oahu The leiothrix was released in Western Australia but it failed to become established. This species was also introduced in Great Britain but permanent establishment was unsuccessful. It was introduced to France, where it is now established in several areas.
Adults have bright red bills and a dull yellow ring around their eyes. Their backs are dull olive green, and they have a bright yellow-orange throat with a yellow chin; females are somewhat duller than males, and juveniles have black bills. It has also been introduced in various parts of the world, with small populations of escapees having existed in Japan since the 1980s. It has become a common cagebird and amongst aviculturists it goes by various names: Pekin Robin, Pekin Nightingale, Japanese Nightingale, and Japanese (Hill) Robin, the last two being misnomers as it is not native to Japan.
Pekin Robins don't fly frequently, except in open habitats. This bird is very active and an excellent singer but very secretive and difficult to see. It makes a wonderful addition to a mixed aviary with good cover provided. Housing one pair per flight.
The standard fare for Pekin Robins in captivity comprises a mix of dried insect food, fresh fruits and mealworms. they especially like fruitflies and live crickets especially in the breeding season.
Pekin Robins are difficult to find for sale but well worth the expenditure and effort to find them.

Yes, Mom is glad that Gloria the car is all pretty again. Several of you have asked about her after seeing her in my gallery, so here's her info. She is a 2001 Audi TT Quattro, and she only has 88,500 miles on her which is low for such an old car. Mom was lucky she didn't ever have a long commute, and one year only drove 1.5 miles to work! Anyway Mom bought her back when she was working and making bunches of money; she could never afford such a nice car today. That is why she plans to keep Gloria for a very long time!

I gave my mom a tough time about going outside this morning, but I finally gave in and climbed on her shoulder so she could carry me over to my outside carrier. Once there I had no problem climbing right in; I just didn't want to be interrupted in my meditation I was doing on my big swing.

  Hi Chipper
Today is a rainy day and rather cool. I don't think it will hit 70 today. Mom cleaned and fed 13 skunks today, but her record of not getting sprayed still holds, knock on wood! She also took care of those little hawks who are quite grown now, and in the flight cage. (The flight cage is a pre release area for raptors, the center staff makes sure they can hunt, land, preen, do all the birdie things they'll need back home in the wild.) As well as all those, mom also cleaned and watered 3 more juvenile red tailed hawks and 5 screech owls. She also did some dishes and laundry while she was there today. Both of those areas tend to back up quickly if someone doesn't pitch in and help.
After the center, mom went shopping, but now she's home with us, with only one load of laundry to do, so she's basically ours for the day.
I hope you are having a pleasant day filled with sunshine and love. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Chipper
It's Alex.
Yesterday turned out to be 1.8 degrees hotter than Saturday. Even though dad really needed to work outside he decided to work inside instead. He helped mom finish cleaning the last two cages and then he re-mopped the kitchen floor. At that time, dad heard something outside. He went to see what it was and guess what? IT WAS RAINING! It was a real downpour. And it lasted a fantastic 45 SECONDS! BIG WHOOP! It evaporated in less than 5 minutes. but it was worse in other places. There were lighting strikes on Catalina Island that started brush fires and knocked out power and phones. There was also a lightening strike on Venice Beach that sent over 10 people to the hospital. Yup, that's life in Southern California.
After all the excitement was over, mom and dad started on dinner. They had decided on cooking a small pork roast in the Ninja. Dad wanted to used the steam/roast function. Mom had a recipe that called for beer so dad bought some beer and added it to the pot, along with onions and garlic. It sure did smell good while it was cooking, but smell isn't everything. The beer that dad used was too strong and the liquid was sour. And to top it off, dad cooked the roast too long and it turned out dry. We think that dad should stick with the BBQ grill.
Today will be with a high of 91 and a low of 68.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs.
Alex.

Good morning ! I'm finally here - this is the second day in a row that we woke up to NO cable/internet ! During the night some really wicked storms came through - one KA-BOOM at about 3:40 was so loud it must have hit something ! As long as it didn't do any damage - there were no sirens so mom is hoping maybe just some minor damage . . . if any.

Well, mom's kitchen vacation is over :( Tonight she starts cooking again - bbq chicken and corn on the cob :) Nice going mom . . . find something daddy can cook ! har har har

ok you are saying this happens when you click on the milonga picture in the family photos? if you just click on that picture it should refresh the page for you although sometimes bird channel gets stuck and it might take a few minutes. also clear your history and hit the F5 key before you start blogging and refreshing the page. if your history is cleared and the F5 button help make the page load faster. don't hit the refresh button on your computer because the bird channel website is too old and doesn't cooperate well when you do that just click on the milonga picture in family photos

It was another fun Milonga until the BC started with problems.
Today sure was a nasty big stormy day. The thunder booms and flashy lights were pretty bad. There is a lot of damage around. We were lucky and are fine. I hope that every bird and family are doing ok too.

mom and dad were eating dinner tonight and mom heard commotion coming from my cage and saw my foot was caught in my baby nest i sit in. i was flapping and hanging off the side by my bad leg. mom went over and held me so i wasn't dangling anymore and then dad took the nest from the cage which i was still caught in and worked for at least 3 minutes to get my foot untangled and dad said no more nest for me. tonight i sat all evening with mom in the bedroom and held my leg up but i still hoped around a bit using the leg. mom is glad i didn't pull my leg off i was struggling so hard.

  Heya, Chipper!
What did you think of those doves that were on Zeena's page? I thought that they were pretty neat!

Today was a strange day weather wise. We started out hot and sticky. then we got grey and icky. And it went back and forth between being sunny and raining like crazy. Oh, and the temperature dropped from 83 to 61, but then went back up to 76. And more rain is on the way, and tomorrow we will have a high of 70, with low humidity. That is the best part of it!

Hope you had a lovely Sunday!
Your buddy,
Kaji

  Hi Chipper
The milonga was lots of fun last night and thanks to all that make it happen! Mom and dad went down to skin brothers to day. Dad needed to get skin brother to do a weld job for the trailer that belongs to the trail. Mom went along to see the grands since she hasn’t been down in a while to see them. She had some things to give them too. The girls have long black hair like their mom and it grows so fast too. Its so black and shiny and thick and even dad remarked how pretty theirs was. They sure are growing up so fast!! The oldest one goes to the senior high this year and is a little nervous about that but am sure she will do fine. ”Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forward”. Leaving a vote for you!! Hugs~~ Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Come visit me, Gus --Chi chi ♥ RIP & Chi chi RIP my sweet girl..

  Hi Chipper-7369
Hello everyone, Zeena here with today's BOTM POST. Today we head to the warm tropical Island Luzon, Philippines and visit an unusual and exotic species of Dove. The Luzon Bleeding-Heart. The Luzon Bleeding-heart (Gallicolumba luzonica) is one of a number of species of ground dove in the genus Gallicolumba that are called "bleeding-hearts". They get this name from a splash of vivid red colour at the centre of their white breasts. The Luzon Bleeding-heart is the species in which this feature is most pronounced, and on first sight it is hard to believe that the bird has not recently been wounded. A reddish hue that extends down the belly furthers the illusion of blood having run down the bird's front. The Luzon Bleeding-heart was featured on a Philippine 2-peso postage stamp in 1994.


The Luzon bleeding-heart is classified as Near Threatened (NT) on the IUCN Red List and is listed on Appendix II of CITES., since it is commonly trapped. Local people use it for meat, but its striking appearance means that there is also a market for it in the pet trade. A captive breeding project has been started in Australia, and the Philippines. Habitat conservation is a priority but it will also be necessary to bring some of the three other species of bleeding heart doves (Negros, Sulu and Mindoro) into captivity, to prevent their extinction. Recently the first captive population of Negros bleeding heart doves has been established in the Philippines.

Only two of the five species of bleeding heart doves are held in captivity in Europe at present: the Luzon and the Mindanao. The European breeding programs for these species are coordinated by Bristol Zoo Gardens. They are being managed to provide a self-sustaining captive population and to develop important care and breeding techniques for use in the Philippines.

Identifying the areas where Luzon bleeding heart doves are found and the numbers that are left is the next step needed to secure this species in the wild. Once sites have been selected with the local community, the area will be protected to ensure the survival of the species in that area.

The areas where the bleeding heart dove lives also contain many other birds unique to these islands, all of which have been threatened by deforestation. In addition, some are threatened by hunting and illegal collection for the pet trade. By highlighting the plight of the bleeding heart dove, conservationists work to save the habitat for all the species in the area.

Although extremely rare in Aviculture 2 pairs were found for sale at $5000.US per pair.
