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
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.

Gosh last night we sure had some very bad storms. A lot of thunder and rain and Tornado warnings in our area. I don't think Mom was too happy with all the noise, and it kept her up very late. Today's another day, and it's looking better for us.

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

Thanks for liking my pic. Oh ... look at your new background ... very pretty!
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.
Maybe we'll start getting better weather soon, I hope so.

  Hi Chipper
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!

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”.

  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.

  Hi Chipper
The milonga sure was a lot of fun, although I still say the ladies in bikinis (you know who you are!!) took serious advantage of distracting us poor guys in the volleyball game. Still not sure who won, and I don't really care. What fun! The band sounded greyt as usual, Ms BB and her liquid refreshments were delicious and Lizzie's buffet....well, let's just say nobirdy went home hungry.

If you come to my page and look at the first two pics in my gallery you will see Gloria the car in all her gleaming glory (why do you think Mom named her Gloria). That's right; the new USB cable arrived yesterday and the pics are finally downloaded on my page. I don't mind sharing space with her at all, as long as she doesn't drive me to the groomers. We are going to have a long chat very soon.

Had a nice sunbath this morning, and we didn't get out till 9:30!! There were actually a few clouds out, so the weather was very slightly cooler. Just in the upper 80s today, which is an improvement. It still doesn't cool off much at night, and Mom has to leave the fan going in my room with my cover open about 6". Which means I wake up as soon as the sun comes up. Mom usually gets up around then anyway, but now I make sure she does!

Oh, and today I like peaches! Mom bought a couple more when she and Dad went to the grocery store yesterday, since they had some more locally grown ones. This time I decided they were good, which is fortunate since Mom said the grapes were so awful she didn't get me any.

  Hi Chipper
It's Alex.
It was pretty warm yesterday. Warm enough that dad didn't want to go outside and work. Instead he spent the day getting caught up on stuff in the office and helping mom with our cages. Sassy's and mine are the only ones that didn't get cleaned but they'll do them today. In the evening dad went out and fired up the charcoal side of his new BBQ grill and cooked some Tri-Tip steaks. I guess they were good cuz all we could hear was chewing and grunting and groaning. I heard dad say that there is nothing like a charcoal grilled steak. I don't know about that. I think I'd take millet over steak any day.
Today, after mom finishes our cages and dad re-mops the floor, they're going to try cooking a pork roast in the Ninja cooker, using the steam/roast function. They've never used that function before so, if the roast doesn't turn out well maybe dad will have a new door stop.
Today will be another hot one. It will be partly cloudy, with a high of 91 and a low of 67.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Alex.

It was another fun milonga last night. It was great to see everybirdie there! Mom signed off because of all the thunder and lightning, but we all stayed til the fireworks were done, then went home in Ipo's shuttle. Thanks to Kiddo, Taz, Lizzie, and Sam for another great party!
Mom spent yesterday afternoon at the pool, it turned out to be a gorgeous day. Last night the thunderstorms rolled in right around time for the milonga and continued til about 2AM. Mom was kept awake by Daisy, who is scared of the noise. She was wearing her thundershirt, but she was still pacing and whining a bit. Today it's gray, cloudy, and looks like it will rain again. It might be a shopping day or just a stay at home and clean the porch day. I hope you are having a fun day of sunshine and summer weather, and that you can get out to play awhile. Hugs, Falco

It's already almost 8:00 in the morning and it's dark and dreary out ! Storms are occurring on and off all day. In fact when mom got up, although we had power, we had lost our internet/cable :( That put a damper on her morning !

Yesterday the parronts went to help out the g'parronts. After dad did the yard and mom took g'ma shopping (can you say cherries for $1.89 ?), they went to look at 'puters ! Yep, at 86, g'pa wants dad to teach him how to use a computer ! ! ! Exciting huh ?

it was nice seeing you at the milonga tonight. sorry we let the milonga early. as soon as we logged on it started thundering really bad but no rain. moms son clued on the phone and since mom hardly ever hears from him it was very nice to have a short talk with him. then dad wanted mom for something and mom had the tv on and sat down for a moment to watch something and fell sound asleep because she only got about 4 hours of sleep last night. when she woke up it was too late to go back to the milonga. it was still thundering and finally we are now getting one good rain.

Good to see you at the Milonga. It sure was fun.
It's been a dark day here with a little rain. The really bad storm is south of us and heading for PA and the east coast. We had the scary thunder booms last night.
This evening, Mrs Fox came to the patio looking for scraps. Sorry, but I ate all my dinner. She sat out there for a little while staring at us. Try again tomorrow.
What a fun Milona Beach Party tonight. I just wish the BC didn't act up for some of us.

  Heya, Chipper!
Did you like the steak? Lizzie just is the best chef ever!

I was waiting for Mom to get up this morning. Nope, was not hungry. Not cuz it was light out...but because I know today is Saturday! FARMER'S MARKET DAY! Mom had to run to the store first, but I followed her around the house just in case she forgot that I knew it was the best day of the week. She says I am pretty darn smart. Of course!

And we went to the market, and I got the nice guy from the pie place whistle for me, and had so many people say hi to me. Got to flirt with Paula, too, and even said "You're a big cutie!" which came out pretty clear for her. She just thinks I am the best! I think she is awesome! Got some carrots there, and corn on the cob (oh, soooo yummy!) and some potatoes--YUMYUMYUM! I just love Saturday!

Guess we get some rain too, tonight or tomorrow. Big storms heading out east, so hope all is okay with everyone.

  Hi Chipper
Yeah, we had trouble with BC too & couldn't get blogs to send. Unfortunately for us, mom got frustrated with the whole thing & did other stuff instead of typing for us. We're so glad things are sorta back to normal! Have a great weekend!

Hugs,

Angel & Pepper

Come visit me, ANGEL & PEPPER.

  Hi Chipper
Hello my dear BC friends. It was a long day without our beloved BC family but we are happy to say once it was up and going it was actually much faster then before. I had a special request from one of my friends to example the breeding of mutations. As this is a limited BOTM series I will touch on it briefly. For anyone interested in more in depth study I have a number of very good links and references.
In simplest terms a "mutation" is any deviation from the "normal wild-type" of any species of animal or bird. They occur spontaneously in the wild, as well as in captivity. In the wild MOST mutations have a very limited life-span owing to their coloration or other physical characteristics that make them more visible and easier prey. An example of a successful mutations are the red markings on normal Congo African Greys. These individuals integrate well into existing grey colored flocks.
In Captivity mutations are able to live and mature thereby offering breeders an opportunity to reproduce like marked/colored offspring. An excellent example is the Blue Budgie. These spontaneously occurred in several continents. By breeding Blue offspring back to normal parents the breeders were able to produce more of the same. Through selective culling and breeding of F2-second generation-blues the color was stabilized. Mutations can continue to occur even in a new mutation color--such as the blue Budgies who then produced offspring with yellow-Lutino or albino pigments. Inbreeding, selective crossing and out crosses to other colored mutations has given rise to all the many colors common in Budgies.
When looking specifically at Quaker Parrots, whose natural color is green/grey we find that the first mutation was a Blue baby hatched in Belgium in the 1940s. It is a complete replacement of the normal green plumage by blue. The gene for blue plumage is Autosomal Recessive and both hens and cocks can be heterozygous or ‘split’ for or‘carriers’ of blue – depending upon your favored terminology! This means--both parents must carry the gene to produce blue even though they are visually "normals" Today there are a large number of mutations being bred.
With all mutations, breeders must cull out the colors they do not want and breed the desired colors into the gene pool. Through consecutive generations of offspring the color is improved upon, often mutating from the original mutation thereby adding yet another new color for serious breeders to work with. Mutation possibilities are limitless as they occur spontaneously and can not be "created" by humans. Hybrids must not be confused with mutations. Hybrids are the result of breeding two diverse species within the same Genera together--examples of which are the Hybrid Macaws, Blue/Gold mated to a Green Wing etc.
Today we will visit a selection of mutations from a number of different species, I hope you enjoy the results.
