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
Mom won the first raffle at the pool this year; it's a gift basket of gift cards! She doesn't know what they are, since she thought she was just contributing. (She rarely wins anything.) But she'll pick it up today and we'll find out. The pool opens at 4 all this week, so mom will pretty much be home after she's done at the museum every day.
This morning's tour was in PA natural history with 7th grade kids. The hour went pretty quickly and the kids were more or less attentive. The group mom had was with a teacher so she was able to keep them focused somewhat. This time of year, though, the kids are done and are looking for summer fun.
Mom posted a pic of the nighthawk and the kestrel on Falco's page for everyone to see. These are a couple of the birds from the avian nursery that mom cleaned yesterday. Sorry they are sideways again, they were right side up when mom looked at them in the file.
I hope you are having a great day. It's beautiful here, lots of sunshine and heat. Get lots of cuddles and scritches today. Hugs, Peppino
PS: We'll leave a vote for the Warriors, too

  Heya, Chipper!
Have your Mom check your email--there is a picture of you! You are in the Prom contest. Not too many gal birdies entered the contest, so the rules were waived. Miss Sallykins is also in the contest. I sure hope you like the pic--Mom says she thinks it turned out pretty well.

And that is all we did today, work on some pictures. It was nice out, but Mom got up late (9 AM!) and she said she felt like it was a good day to stay home with me. Who am I to object?! So she did her exercises and did some stuff around here, and I got to look outside from the hanging planter (no plant in it anymore, as I chewed up the silk flowers that were in it years ago). Mom turned on the air as by 5PM it was super hot with the sun coming in, and the nice breeze we had left us.

Hope you had a greyt Memorial Day!

Wing hugs coming from your buddy,

  Hi Chipper
We'll still vote for the Warriors, then.
Happy Memorial Day to all!
Yesterday was a washout at the pool, it rained nearly all afternoon. Mom did go to dinner with her daughter, though, and had a good time. Mom's granddaughter Lena called, too, and they have plans for next Sunday. Guess what? Lena is still willing to cut mom's hair! So mom will drive down there on Sunday to visit and get a haircut in the afternoon.
Today mom cleaned and fed in the avian nursery. There is a big variety of birds in there now, including bluebirds, those cute downy woodpeckers (who are in a fledgling cage now), a pileated woodpecker, a baby kestrel, a nighthawk, some ducklings, and the usual assortment of baby songbirds, sparrows, and pigeons. It's getting very crowded in there! Mom got all the cages done except for the little crow, and that was because, since she had the 30 minute timer, she just ran out of time. The thirty minute timer was for 2 incubators today, which means about 40 baby birds all needing cleaned and fed every half hour. That takes a lot of time!
After the center, mom came home, changed, and went to the pool, where she jumped into the water just to cool off a little before she even set up her chair. She stayed at the pool for about 3 hours, and now that she's showered and dressed, she's ours for the rest of the day. No picnics this year, unfortunately, but that's okay. Mom bought a chicken wrap at the pool to eat for dinner tonight, so she still doesn't have to cook.
I hope you are having a wonderful Memorial Day celebration today, maybe attending a parade, or giving thanks to our vets in some other way. Get lots of attention for yourself, too! Hugs, Peppino

  on Memorial Day . . .
The flag flies over this land of the brave and the free
as a symbol of the liberty enjoyed by you and me.
It flutters in the breeze of a quiet afternoon
reflecting sounds of battles in which men died too soon.

The flag flies overhead in cities and in towns
where people seek a haven from worlds turned upside-down.
It tries, gallantly, to honor, on quiet afternoons,
memories of warriors -- young men who died too soon.

The flag flies overhead -- unseen, by some, it seems,
who hurry on their separate ways in search of private dreams.
It waves farewell then, it appears, with the rise of the evening moon,
it gently reaches out to touch the men who died too soon.

Quiet day here with Mom. She went over to Grandpa's today and brought me some pecan kringle back. Yummy stuff, for sure! It was a lovely day--patio doors open, beautiful breeze coming in, and the humidity and dew points were bearable! We got into the high 70's but with that breeze, it felt so nice!

If all goes well, my mom will be there for PP this year. After the wedding (skinsis gets married next month) she can relax and start planning. Hope you see you there. They have lots of cute birdies looking for homes, you should check them out.
Another day of nurse scrubs for me, mom had a bad sick day. I sure hope she is well soon as I want more play time. Hope everybird is having a greyt weekend with greyt weather.

I will leave a vote for the Warriors every day, didn't know you were still going for the 10k. I may not blog, but will leave a vote.
Your mom's best bet is to find a breeder then.
Yesterday it was such a beautiful pool day. It was warm, sunny, and the water was wonderful. Mom didn't do any laps, but she did get in the water, which is a step in the right direction. Mom's sister was too tired to go, since they got home after 1 in the morning, but the other people mom knows there did show up, so she was able to chat and read. Those are the main reasons for going, haha.
Today mom will be there again, then later, her daughter will take her out to dinner. Mom's son in law has gone to Ohio to see his mother, and her daughter thought it would be good for the two of them to get together. Mom likes that idea, especially since she doesn't have to cook.
I hope you are having a pleasant spring day, with lots of sunshine and plenty of attention! Hugs, Peppino

  Heya, Chipper!
Mom opened up the patio doors in the living room and bedroom until around 4 PM, when the sun came full force. Then the air came on. Not as sticky as yesterday, which is a relief! Mom did not go out at all--she worked on a couple prom dresses for a couple of birdies. She has to see how they turned out, too. Now it is raining, and supposed to get thunder boomers and lightening. Don't care as long as I am with Mom.

Not much else going on...which is the way I like it!

  Hi Chipper
Sometimes that's true, but most reputable rescues will find out the age of the animal. Still, getting a baby is wonderful, and the best place to do that is from a breeder or store. I left a vote for the Warriors.
After mom walked the dogs this morning, she watered everything again. There were supposed to be showers last night, but they never materialized. Jeff brought over a huge bag of onions and mustard greens, so mom cooked that for him while she was cooking our bird food. He also brought over some sunflower seeds to plant. One of them is called Teddy Bear, and it's the cutest sunflower in the world! Mom hopes it grows here.
Today the pool opens, YAY! So mom has to pull out the bathing suits, towels, and cover ups, as well as the SPF 8 that she starts the year with. I know, 8 doesn't sound like much protection, but for mom it works. Her sister does a 16, and one of her friends at the pool has a 75, but that seems like overkill.
Anyway, mom will be at the pool today, then when she gets back and showered, if she's not going to dinner with her sister, she'll be ours for the evening. She isn't sure, since her sis just got back from the Alaskan cruise.
I hope you are having a wonderful Saturday, with sunshine, warm temps, and lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

  Heya, Chipper!
Humid again today. Mom donated blood, and she felt okay afterward in spite of the humidity and high dew point. She went to Sam's and then to Metro Market. By the time she was done, she was happy to head home, as she was feeling the humidity. I was so happy to see her, too. She brought me good food, and boy, am I happy to get some fresh peas and carrots.

I have been obnoxious the past couple days. At least that is what Mom says. I am going after her toes and feet, trying to feed her fingers...oh yeah, hormones are going! Mom says that she loves me to pieces but enough is enough! She says I need to have my toenails done, which seems to subdue the raging hormones for a little while. At least she hopes so! They are getting nice and spikey, so maybe.

  Hi Chipper
That was a fun party! Thanks for coming to help me celebrate.
Today mom posted some pics of animals at the center on Falco's page. She apologizes for the sideways downy woodpecker pic, it was right side up before it got posted here! Those are the babies that were in the tree on Saturday. The other pic is Cecilia, our resident barred owl with her foster baby. She's a first time foster mom, and she's doing great!
Mom cleaned the recovery room again today. The falcon has some pep in her step now! She's doing quite well. There is also a red tailed hawk in there who broke its beak. About half the top beak is missing, but we think with time, it will grow back. This bird might be a very long term resident, though. Mom put the raptors into carriers while she did their cages, and the poor hawk didn't want to get back out. Mom had to get the huge gloves back on to get it out of there and into its bigger cage. Usually birds want to get out of the small carriers!
There are 2 ducks, 2 turtles (the one with nail polish and another one), and the mom possum all in there too.
We had our pedicures today. I'd like to report that we were all good, but both of us boys were screaming bloody murder! Millie and Lily remain the best of all, and Falco was even cooperative today. I hope you are having a great day. It's hot and sunny here for now, but showers are predicted for later. Mom is hoping that's true, because things could use more water than she gave them yesterday. She still has to move house plants outside for the summer, but probably will get that done today. I hope you get lots of well deserved attention, cuddles, and scritches today. Hugs, Willie and Peppino

  Heya, Chipper!
Mom is so glad she cleaned the a/c filter yesterday--she said she sweat so bad yesterday she felt awful. She drank a ton of water, too. Today she sweat when she started to move around--humidity was 90% and dew point was 68%. On went the a/c. She did her ironing today as she had the a/c on. We keep it at 80 or 81, depending on how sunny it is. The one in the living room has an adjustable setting so it will shut off once the temp is met, and turn on when it falls below. And right now she is gonna up the temp cuz it is feeling a bit chilly (at 80!)

Tomorrow she donates blood and will stop for some groceries afterward. Her hairdresser's hubby called at around 5 PM and wanted to get together with Mom tomorrow to go over the website info, and when Mom told him she was donating, he was like:Why would she do that?! Um, it is the holiday weekend, and the need for blood never goes away. It gets worse on holidays. She doesn't think he was too happy, but when you call at 5PM the day before, you have to accept that other plans might be made. So he will call Tuesday.

Off to get a lovely head scritch!

I got to 20k votes, so let's party at the HOF! Congratulations to my friend Chyna for making her 30k votes! The party at the HOF should be in full swing right now for both of us. We're heading back there as soon as our blogs are done.
Mom had 2 tours again today. The first was with sixth grade on biomes and climate change. They were great! It was an all girl group, because the teacher had separated them out that way. Mom thinks that's a good idea for 6 and up, because then the girls aren't shy about answering and asking questions. The second group was fourth grade in dinosaurs. One of the chaperones was a former docent! Mom knew her well, so had her help out with the touchable skulls during the tour. Those kids were fantastic! But you knew mom would say that: 4th grade, dinosaurs...
Today after we're finished, mom is going to water the plants, hopefully finish planting all the other stuff Jeff brought over last night, and get the house plants outside for their summer vacation. After that she's ours for the day/night! Tomorrow we have birdicures scheduled, yuck!
I hope you are having that fine weather like we are having here, low 80s, sunny, and beautiful. Have a fun day, get lots of cuddles and scritches, too. Hugs, Willie and Peppino

  Heya, Chipper!
Oh, my, it was so humid today! And tomorrow is supposed to be 85 and even worse. We had some storms roll thru. Mom got the air conditioner cover off and the filter washed, so we are ready for it. Mom also wanted to clean her Vornado fan--normally very simple. She called the company and found out they put 3 teeny screws in the front grille that you could barely see, and you needed a long and skinny Phillips screw driver to get them loose. Mom tried and tried, and called the company back, and they are sending her a long Phillips screw driver with a magnetic tip. Of course, Mom did not give up after she hung up the phone--and finally got those little buggers unscrewed! Getting them back in after she cleaned the grill and the fan was another story. What an adventure! The old fan she had was wonderful. Simple to take apart. This one is another story!

Then she did the bedding so she could change to the light weight quilt, and did the air conditioner (cleaned it and the filter). Love the heat but hate the humidity and dewpoint when it is so high. I took a big bath, and Mom took a nice shower--we both needed it! Greyt to be nice and clean!

Have a greyt rest of the night, and wing hugs coming your way!

  Hi Chipper
Today mom had a fourth grade group for PA natural history. They were fantastic! She's a little biased, though. The second group was a bunch of first grade kids doing an animal tour. They had the attention span of goldfish, so it's a good thing they had 4 chaperones for the group. Mom finally gave up and just played I Spy with them in the dioramas of North American and African wildlife. They seemed to like that better.
Mom stopped back at the feed store to pick up the suet that got delivered yesterday afternoon. There was only one kind, and she usually buys a variety. She didn't care, just got 10 of the Nutty treats. Then she stopped for milk before finally making it home where she could change into shorts and a tank top. It's pretty hot outside; the car registered mid 80s and the deck thermometer registered high 70s. So after the blogs are done, I think mom will be out tending the new plants, watering them at least. I hope you are having a fine day today and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie and Peppino

Thanks for the congratulations on BOTD! Can't believe it, but wow, having two days to celebrate is pretty special.Thank you so much for helping Lizzie with the food and the Hatchday Cake, too! Please make sure you come back to the Dragon Cave to enjoy! There are a couple birdies who are still there from yesterday, I think.

It is gonna be another warm one today--81 now, and the dew point is creeping up steadily. Kinda overcast. Mom says she hopes this summer is not gonna be a scorcher, but the weather folks say it is gonna be hotter than normal.

I was not good today. I kept going after Mom's toes and feet, and took a nice little bite out of her left foot. She was not happy. I got a time out, too. Luckily the bite did not bleed much and the skin has a flap on it. Mom put some styptic stuff on and it was fine. Then she ran to Meijer and picked up some good food and other stuff she needed. She apparently forgave me cuz she brought me some raspberries! Oh yeah!

THANK YOU for the lovely Hatchday pic!! I have it on my page as my profile picture!! Very cool!! Mom and I love it so much! Stop by for some good Hatchday Cake that Lizzie made for me over at the Dragon Cave!

So far today I had some good stuff--a little piece of apple pie and a little piece of pecan pie! And some cole slaw, too. I am waiting patiently for my chicken and stuffing, and Mom says she might just throw a baked potato in with it. I am in heaven! Of course, I had some grapes, mixed veggies, and other good stuff. But today I get to splurge and have things that are special for my big day! And of course, Mom sang to me, and we have been having a lovely day together, even if she did dye her feathers and I could not be on her shoulder for that.

  Hi Chipper
What kind of bird are you looking for? Maybe call a rescue and see what they have? I know in Lancaster there's a big rescue, and they usually have a bunch of birds for adoption... Just a thought.
Mom's tours yesterday were great, she enjoyed each one of them. She had a question on the last one that she didn't answer to the woman's satisfaction, and she really tried to answer it to the best of her ability. The question was very unclear, though, so maybe that was the problem.
We had a lovely time with mom after she got home, though. We all got our cuddles and scritches from her, and she even sang and danced with us.
Those baby woodpeckers that were rescued on Saturday are doing well.
Today mom cleaned the bunny room at the center. She also prepared 3 more cages for incoming patients in the treatment room. It seems that as soon as some bunnies leave, there are others to take their places. Mom also fed the mom possum, the falcon, and the mallard in the recovery room, as well as doing 3 laundry tubs full of dishes. She was going to run out for bird seed but she's tired, so may do it tomorrow instead. It seems the wild birds around here are eating up the suet and seed as soon as it gets put outside!
I hope you're having a great day, getting lots of sunshine and some cuddles and scritches, too. Hugs, Peppino

  Heya, Chipper!
Greyt to hear from ya! So happy you have your page back again!!

Mom went over by Grandpa's today, and checked for maple seedlings--yippie! There were only two that she found. When she was between his house and the house next door, she heard a 'woof' and turned around--the guy has two pugs, and one was sitting in the open window--and so Mom said hi, and the dog practically wiggled it's butt off. That was so cute. The other one, though, started barking, and the guy called to both of them. At least one is super friendly! Then Mom sat down in the yard, and saw two bunnies chasing each other. One of them ran into Grandpa's yard and rested under the bridal wreath. Male cardinal started singing away, two sparrows were doing a dance...Mom loves watching all of it!

Quiet day otherwise. Mom keeps telling me about my birdthday tomorrow, and how we met 26 years ago! Can't wait to see what good stuff I get to eat tomorrow, too!

Wing hugs coming your way!
Your buddy,
Kaji

  Hi Chipper
Thanks for the votes! We sure do miss you here. Is mom thinking about getting a bird?
Mom did 3 tours at the wildlife center yesterday, and Meaghan, one of the educators, also did 3, so there were about 60 visitors. Mom's tours were great, until the last one, when it was pouring rain. She was still able to show everyone the nurseries, the animals in the habitat building, the foxes and raptors who live outside, and the menagerie. On the last tour, she left out the turtles, because it was muddy to get back to where their summer home is. People seemed glad to see the place, and learn what is done there for the wildlife. When mom got there, there had been 1082 intakes for the year, but while she was doing tours, another bunch of animals were being brought in, so she thinks by the time she left, there were probably 1100 intakes for this year.
Jeff lent some saws to them yesterday so they could cut some baby woodpeckers out of a log. Someone had chopped down a tree without checking for wildlife, and when they realized there were babies in one of the tree cavities, they called the center and brought in the log that contained them. The mother wouldn't go near them once they were on the ground, so the center is their best chance. When mom got there, she showed the people on her tours the log they came in, and was able to encourage people not to tear down or wall up any places where wild babies may be hidden.
Today mom is doing her final weekend tours before the summer. The pool opens next Saturday, so she will not sign up to do weekends at the museum until after Labor Day. She's doing 3 dinosaur tours today, so it's a great way to finish her weekends.
I hope today is bright and sunny for you. It's still cloudy here, and supposed to rain later today AGAIN. May you get lots of cuddles and scritches today, as well as your favorite treats. Hugs, Willie and Peppino
