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
V4U today. Well, we had a few warm and sunny days. Yesterday the rain returned along with the cold weather. There are freeze warnings for the weekend. This always happens right before Easter, glad we didn't put our deck plants out yet or we would be bringing them right back in. LOL :) The wild birds have returned to our yard, hopefully we'll be seeing some nests soon. The wasps are back, too. LOL :) Have a good day. From, Mayo

Come visit me, Mayo, Dandy & Marigold.

Mom had little kids yesterday for her tour. They were preK, so around 4 years old. You can imagine it was hard to keep them focused. They started in Bird Hall, though, so they liked looking at the pretty colors.
Well, today is going to be one great day for us birdies, after mom gets done scrubbing the cages, that is. She has a few errands, but they won't take long, and the day is ours! We love days like this, they are rare this time of year. The museum will be super busy from after Easter until mid June, so this may be our last whole day for awhile.
I hope you are having a fun day today, getting some springlike weather, and of course, lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

  Hi Chipper
Bald Eagles are nesting on all three of Pittsburgh's major rivers! Who knew the day would never come when Pittsburghers would be cheering for the Eagles…Bald Eagles, that is!

It has probably been more than 250 years since Bald Eagles last nested along Pittsburgh’s three rivers. In the 18th century, suitable nesting habitat in the form of mature tall trees was stripped from the hillsides flanking the rivers to meet the lumber and fuel demands of a rapidly growing human population in the area; second, industrialization beginning in the 19th century led to extensive unregulated pollution of the rivers, which decimated fish populations that eagles feed on; third, beginning in the mid-20th century eagles (and many other birds) showed signs of succumbing to the unintended side effects of widespread use of the pesticide DDT (developed for use in World War II) which eventually caused chronic nesting failure for the species. As recently as the mid-1980s, there were just a few remaining nesting Bald Eagles pairs anywhere in Pennsylvania, all of these in the northwest corner of the state.
One nest, located on the Monongahela River in the community of Hays is the most famous because a web camas been set up to view the nest. millions of people are viewing the nesting activity. Last year this pair successfully raised three eagle babies. this year they only layed 2 eggs. one of the eggs had a crack in it and the mom tried to keep it together but when the dad eagle came to sit on the egg he saw the crack and threw the egg out of the nest. during a recent snowstorm the mom eagle was totally covered in snow while incubating the single egg
The Bald Eagle,has made a tremendous comeback throughout its range in the lower 48 states. Its recovery is due to enforcement of federal laws protecting it from persecution, the banning of DDT, which bio-accumulated in eagles and other piscivorous (fish-eating) birds, eventually causing complete reproductive failure through the thinning of their egg shells to the point that eggs simply broke when parent birds tried to incubate them; passage in the same year of the federal Clean Water Act, and, direct recovery measures taken by our Game Commission, which brought nestling Bald Eagles from healthy populations to hacking sitese when the state’s breeding population was down to just a few nesting pairs. Similar efforts by game agencies in surrounding states also have contributed to the rapid increase in the number of nesting Bald Eagles in Pennsylvania. By 2000, there were about 50 known nesting pairs of eagles in the state; as of 2012, more than 200 nesting locations are known for Bald Eagle in Pennsylvania, including nests in almost every county!

  Hi Chipper
HAPPY HUMPDAY
OBSERVING NESTS (PART2) from yesterday

7)Search carefully: It is critically important that we avoid damaging nest sites. Nests that have yet to be discovered are particularly vulnerable. When searching for nests, move slowly through dense foliage, being careful not to dislodge any nests. The nests of ground-nesting birds, such as Killdeer, Ovenbirds, Bobolinks, and many waterbirds, are difficult to see, so tread lightly and be cautious around potential ground-nest sites.
8)Be wary of nest predators: Avoid leaving tracks that can direct predators to nests. Nest predators are everywhere—on the ground, in vegetation, and in the air—and many are smart enough to watch you, so be careful that predators such as cats are not following you! Also try to not damage or trample vegetation that could expose nests.
9)Minimize disturbance at the nest: It is important not to startle a bird as you approach the nest; this may cause it to accidentally knock out eggs or young when it flies off. Before approaching the nest, try to see if a parent is sitting on it. Whenever possible, wait a few minutes to see if the bird leaves on its own. If they do, this is the ideal time to check the nest. If a sitting bird does not leave on its own, do not force it off the nest. In this case, you will need to come back later. Remember to keep each visit brief.
10)Never handle birds or eggs in the nest: Eggs can be easily cracked or small nestlings injured, and there is no reason to touch these fragile younglings, despite how cute they may look. Small nestlings are remarkably helpless and may not be able to crawl back into the nest cup if displaced, even inside of a nest box. Children observing nests should always be under the supervision of an adult.
11)Don’t leave a dead-end trail: If you plan on visiting the nest frequently, try to take a different route away from the nest site than the route you took to reach it. Walking to the nest and back along the same path leaves a dead-end trail that can lead predators directly to the nest.

Today mom has a tour at 11:20, so I'm going first in the blogs, as she thinks I can finish mine before she has to leave. I don't know if that's true, but I'll try.
Mom's dinner party at Uncle Gene's went well last night. They all had a good time, and Gene cooked some good food for everyone. Mom loves seeing her nieces and nephews, so she was glad there was one of each last night. They also told mom they would be here for Easter dinner, which is spectacular news. Maybe that means Aunt Gin will come for dinner, too. That would be a real treat.
I think once the tour is over and the blogs done, mom will be at our disposal the rest of the day. I'm sure we can keep her busy, what do you think?
Have a wonderful day, and hope spring is getting to your house soon. Hugs, Peppino

We loved seeing everyone's St. Pat's pics up, and now we are loving all the Easter pics. BC moms and dads are so creative!
Mom was at a meeting this morning at the museum. It took all morning, but it was the spring luncheon, too, so at least the food was good. Mom took some pics of the very end of the meeting, which was a lot more interesting than the beginning. The staff got to see the latest museum outreach program about Spinosaurus, complete with a spinosaurus 'baby' which is a 6 foot animatronic/human puppet! It was really neat! Mom will try to post pics if she can figure out how to get them off her phone.
Tonight mom is going to Gene's for dinner, as he's leaving for Germany again on Saturday and won't be back for awhile. She has some fudge to take over there, as what she made for the luncheon didn't get all eaten up.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of scritches and cuddles. It's still cold here, hopefully you are having springlike weather. Hugs, Peppino

  Hi Chipper
RULES TO KEEP IN MIND WHEN OBSERVING NESTING BIRDS
OBSERVING NESTS (PART1)
1)Nest visits shouldn’t last much longer than 1 minute: Please exercise extreme caution and responsibility when searching for nests to ensure the safety of birds, nests, and nest contents; observations of nests should never jeopardize the well-being of birds!
2)Don’t check in the early morning: Most birds lay their eggs in the morning, so plan on visiting nests in the afternoon. Also, most adults will temporarily leave the nest when you are near, and eggs and young nestlings can become cold quickly if left alone in the morning.
3)Avoid nests during the first few days of incubation: If necessary, observe nests from a distance and approach only when the female leaves the nest.
4)Do not approach nests when young are close to fledging: When the young are disturbed during this stage, they may leave the nest prematurely. Young that fledge prematurely usually do not stay in the nest despite attempts to put them back, and their survival rates away from or outside the nest are low. So when young birds are fully feathered and very alert, only observe the nest from a distance.
5)Avoid nests during bad weather: If it is cold, damp, or rainy, postpone checking nests until another day. Checking nests during this time can be very stressful for birds.
6)Don’t check nests at or after dusk: Females may be returning to the nest for the night, and be alarmed by your presence. The exception to this would be owls, which typically leave the nest at dusk.
i hope you are finding these facts interesting

  Hi Chipper
It seems that birds may not be as faithful to their mates as we’ve been led to think.The use of DNA by scientists has provided new food for thought to people who had assumed that most birds were faithful to their mates, if not for a lifetime, at least for a single breeding season.

It turns out that there is more hanky-panky going on in the back fields and woodlands of the country among birds than anyone could imagine. DNA studies of songbirds have shown that among any four baby birds in a single nest, it is typical that only an average of two are the creation of the parent birds that are raising them. The other two nestling have either a different father or mother, or both. In other words, it is a common practice among songbirds to copulate with birds other than their mates, thus producing broods of nestlings with mixed parentage.

Not Every Partnership Lasts The Season
Divorce is also common among birds, particularly in birds of prey. If a mated pair of hawks, for example, is not successful in producing a brood of youngsters, an avian divorce often arises and one or the other will seek another mate.

Some birds that are faithful to their mates.Although there are a few exceptions, parrots are monogamous breeders which nest in cavities and hold no territories other than their nesting sites.The pair bonds of the parrots and cockatoos are strong and a pair remains close even during the non-breeding season, even if they join larger flocks. Eagles, some Owls Geese, Swans and some seabirds are uncommonly faithful, often for life. Indeed, true love does seem to exist in the bird world, though it is hard to find.

Mom had a leisurely day yesterday, and ended up finishing the book she was reading and going to get her nails done. She got a blue polish with fish. Today mom did the RVS room and the bats again. She talked to the volunteer coordinator, though, and told her it has to be one or the other in her time slot. If she wants her to do the RVS room, that's okay, she can do that and one other small room, but not the bats. If she wants her to do the bats, that's fine, but with 7 of them, it's about a 2 hour job to collect the mealworms, feed them all, and get their cages done.
Mom got the box of squirrels today, too! They caught 5 of them and put them in a nest box, and sent it home with her. One of the other volunteers came here with a long ladder, and they nailed it way up in a tree in the yard. She scattered food under it for them, so they won't go hungry. We will continue tossing food out to them until stuff starts growing here and they can find enough for themselves.
Mom's daughter also came over today to help with the downstairs curtains. Mom wanted everything on all the windows washed and put back up, and Jamie didn't want mom on a ladder without supervision, hahaha. Anyway, now all the window stuff is done for the spring, and it looks and smells better in here.
I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of cuddles, scritches, and good weather. (It's still cold here, but sunny today at least.)

HELPING BIRDS WITH NESTS
NESTBOXES

‘Cavity-nesting birds’ like different boxes to nest in, depending on their size. You can build nestboxes for birds as different as owls, bluebirds, certain ducks, kestrels, and other species! Another great citizen science project at the Lab of Ornithology, NestWatch, works very closely with nesting birds, and has fantastic tips and learning aids about nestboxes, among other things. Here are some helpful links from the NestWatch program regarding nestboxes:

Nestbox plans: Be sure to check out the sections on protecting from predators and dealing with invasive competitors.


Features of a good nestbox: If you do decide to use kits instead of building boxes yourselves, please make sure that they are good for birds. You’ll want to make sure they have proper ventilation, no perches by the entrance hole (they often help predators access the nest), a sloped roof, drainage holes, thick walls, and a tight-fitting roof that does not permit water to enter the box.

TOMORROW more on watching nesting birds

  Hi Chipper
Mom had 3 different tours yesterday, which was good for her, she didn't have to remember if she said something or not when she changed groups. The first 2 tours were samplers of the museum, so mom always lets the group pick where they want to go. The first ones wanted Egypt and Dinosaur Hall, and they were elementary aged kids, so that was a piece of cake. The second group were high school kids and they wanted Gems and Minerals and Dinosaurs. Another easy trick. The third group was a cub scout den who wanted PA Natural History, so mom spent that hour on the second floor, in Botany Hall, then in North American Wildlife, sticking to PA plants and animals. The parents were just as interested as the kids, which is always good for a tour group.
Last night mom and Aunt Ginny went out for dinner and the opera. They ate at a great Thai place which is more and more crowded every time they go there. The good news is that Aunt Ginny made indoor reservations, as it was chilly outside. Dinner was fantastic, as usual. The opera was Carmen, which both mom and Aunt Gin have seen many times. It was a good performance, well balanced cast, nice scenery, and good dancing, too. The orchestra was just right, not too loud. All in all it was a great day for mom, but we spent the day in lockdown. Today mom says it's going to be a lot better. She is off! She may run some errands, but otherwise she is ours for the day.
I hope you are having some good weather, and especially getting lots and lots of Sunday cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

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

Dad put the Happy Hut back in my cage. He took it out when I was having my behavior problems a couple months ago. We're trying it back in - I was so happy to be sleeping in my wonderful hut.
Great to have it back, at least for now.

Dad is having a BluRay Cinema Day here. Friends don't own BluRay Players, so they're coming over to see a movie or two in his BluRay collection.

I'm sure I'll get some snacks from them today.

  Hi Chipper
Wow, thanks for voting me Bird of the Day yesterday! You guys are all so nice, I really appreciated it! I am settling in well in my new home. Today my new momma gave me head rubs. I asked her for them, all I had to do was say "head scratchin' " 5 or 6 times, and she came over and did it, hehe. After she gave me my scratches, she left my door open and told me I could come out if I wanted to. I haven't been out in awhile. But, I decided to try and climb out on the door. It wasn't bad at all, and then I went and sat up on top of my cage. She let me sit up there for a few hours, and I was really happy. I didn't remember how nice being out was. I went back in my cage when she put a treat in my treat bowl. I hope I can come out again, it made me really happy. I also got a new toy today, I've already started working on it! (: Well, it is nice to meet all of you! I'm really excited to be here! (:
