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!

Chipper enjoys sitting in the nest, standing on the perch, and laying on the bottom of the cage.



She takes me out of my cage, gives me attention, and spends a lot of time with me.

  Hi Chipper
Hello fellow Amazon Adventurers, Amando here with a rather "fishy" situation. After scaring the Hippos away with a Cappy scream and landing safely down River, we soon made the discovery that that the Amazon is home to some pretty "fishy" characters. Red-bellied Piranhas.
Cappy shudders when he sees the bucket and the churning water ..." I think it best to stay away from that water ... Thank goodness those things can't come on shore ... just look at how fast they ate through the bucket ... Faster than I could have ... whew."
The others back away from the water as Jenny-Lynn eyes the chewed bucket, then leans over to look at the fish. "could I get one of those Piranhas with tartar sauce and lettuce, LOL! "
Just as the birds had settled for lunch Capt. Finny flew in at a swift speed, between breathes he related the outcome of the Green Angel's search of the area. "Kacey and Kallie sent Chuey to tell Chipper and I to get up the river fast! Pearl and Silver have been on the look-out with them to see what kind of suspicious activity is going on. We're getting pretty near where we could be spotting Armando's Momma and flock anytime now. So we wanted to be really careful. You're not going to believe this, but we saw more poachers! And this time they were really operating undercover, spreading nets. I think they may be after Armando's flock! You've got to get up here fast with JL and the gang, but be sure you keep little Armando out of sight. We've come so far and we're so close now, but this is going to be dangerous."
Amando looks at Jenny-Lynn and Sky, then at all his friends. He goes to Sugar and leans over to whisper into Armando's ear, " you're almost home little buddy. We're not going to stop now. Soon you will be back with your Momma" he kisses him softly on the head and sadly smiles at Sugar.
Turning to the others he says, " Finny and the Green Angels have found poachers ahead. Armando's flock is in danger. We are BC Commando Birds and we will not give-up, back-down or retreat. Who is with me?"
With one voice the cheer fills the Rainforest opening where the group stopped for lunch. "We will not be defeated. Together we shall win the war over poaching!" Amando's heart filled with hope and courage as he returned to Jenny-Lynn and Sky. Sitting on an old log, the three discuss with Finny the area ahead, the location of the poachers and make their plan of attack. Little Armando must be returned to his flock. Jenny looks at the drawing of the area and frowns. The nesting site for Armand's flock is close by. "I have no doubt that they are indeed after Armando's flock. " Jenny growls angrily, and glares off into the jungle growth.
"OK Birdie Commando's let's move out. It's war. This time it is no-holds-barred" Amando yells.
Sugar and Dory get Armando ready for the cross jungle trek. With Guards, Taz, Spot, Gus, Cori, Sweetpepper, Kiddo and Pookie in closed formation around Armando they begin to move out.

We got about 6 inches of snow so far last night and today. Mom shoveled the front walkway after she walked the dogs. It's still snowing, though, so she called off at the center and is going to wait to do the driveway. She is kind of hoping that Josh comes by to shovel when the snow stops. It's supposed to stop by one, but it will snow again later.
Mom's family came over last night with pizza, salad, and ice cream cake to celebrate her daughter's birthday. They will try for Nicky's Thai next week if the weather is good. Everyone had a big dinner, and some of us(Willie, Peppino, and Maxine) got to have a little crust and salad, too. Mom made sure we were all in cages before everyone left, too, so none of us would try to follow them outside in the snow.
There's not much going on, due to the snowfall, so I will wish you a day filled with cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Monday kinda day...Flitzer
Happy Monday, friends.
--
Sunday was a cold icy day in Buffalo. Dad had to go in and out a few times – he did manage not to fall, but it was treacherous walking and driving.
--
Dad thoroughly cleaned my cage Sunday afternoon. On the advice of a few good bird-expert friends, he removed my 'Happy Hut' for a time. I really love my hut for sleepy-time. They told him it would help in this time of trying to re-bond with me. This will probably be quite temporary.
I was good with Dad on Sunday - and we enjoyed some good time together. In the evening I flew around the apartment with my loud happy squawk.
--
I nipped Dad instead of stepping-up this morning. He has walked away –says he’ll come back when I want to behave. ~~Sigh~~

Hope we all have a great week. ~Wings Up~

moms back is slowly starting to heal. she didn't think it would ever feel better. she can now stand up straight and walk instead of all crouched over. its still hard to get in and out of bed. since mom has had so much time she started to try and fix the new 19 inch samsung tv she bought for herself for about 1 month now the screen was so dark all she could see where the actors eyes and teeth. she got that fixed and is working on the color which is a tad too green. it was actually nice to be able to watch a movie and see what was going on

dad insists his email is now in moms computer and is having the tech erase it. mom says his email is not in her computer and all mom did was change dads email password with comcast. since mom now knows the password she can access it by going into comcast. dad doesn't understand. mom told dad he can change his password and mom won't be able to read his email

  Hi Chipper
We are supposed to get snow dumped on us this afternoon through tomorrow morning; the latest prediction is up to 6 inches. Mom decided with that prediction, she'd better do her errands this morning before the stuff starts to fall. So, she went to Barnes and Noble for another book (big surprise, right?) and then to Home Goods for another picture frame. The one she got for Falco's pic broke when it fell off the Command hook last week. So, she drove through misty rain there and back. It's 37 out there, and if the temps hold up, it will probably be rain instead of snow. Who knows? The weather folks are wrong more often than right.
Tonight the family is coming over with pizza and a birthday cake for her daughter. Yes, they are still celebrating birthdays. This is the last until February 20, though.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Chipper
Hello everybirdie. Amando here with today's Adventure update. After a frightful emergency with my fister Sweetie and her Pet Store toy, we are back on our trip to return Armando to his Momma and flock. With the Hippos awake things got pretty nasty for poor Cappy and his boat load of Amazon Adventurers. Hippos are not native to South America but were relocated here by someone then left to fend on their own when their owner was killed by authorities. The warmth, abundant water and plant life are perfect habitat for the displaced African natives. A large male awoke by the passing boat lets out a loud roar of annoyance that rouses the others from their afternoon rest. He runs forward, his strong legs moving easily across the river bottom. The others in his pod follow, heading towards the longboat.
Cappy sees the angry hippo coming and let's out a huge Cockatoo SCREAM, crest up, feathers fluffed. The male Hippo comes to a screeching stop and stares in wonder at the large white bird standing on the helm of the longboat. The others stop behind him, not certain what to do. The leader roars again and steps forward. Cappy screams again, this time he is joined by the other BC friends. The sound is deafening as it echos across the water. The Hippos having never seen or heard a Cockatoo before stare for a moment longer then turn on their heels and head back towards the distant shoreline. Cappy screams once more for a final warning, before smiling happily at his friends in the boat. "You just don't mess with a TOO!" he says, grabbing his oar. "OK, let's paddle out of here."
The other boats pass by undisturbed as the hippos keep a nervous watch from the banks. The group sails past Manaus, before BB calls to them to head for shore for lunch. Dixie and Little Angel were so comforted to be in the boat with Cappy as their guard,he sure did scare those hippos fast! They wouldn't want to mess around with that strong big beak.
BB opens her travel bag & gets out the portable kitchen. Out of the storage bins she gets corn on the cob, veggie Kabobs,Soy burgers and Spam hot dogs. Little Bits Best root beer is in the coolers along with Cream & Ginger Ale sodas.
"I am going to call in the supply shuttle for more food. Any birdie have a request for food??" she asks looking at Sky, " yes Pickles, I won't forget. Sky could you and Jesse go bring some water from the river please?"
Sky grabs two buckets as he and Jesse wander back down to the River where the others are playing a game of beach volleyball. Bending over, sky dips the bucket into the river and suddenly the water begins to turn and bubble. Startled Sky yanks the bucket out. "WHAT ???" he yells looking at it. The whole bottom was gone, eaten away. "Stay out of the water, Piranhas!"
Everybirdie stops dead and stares at the bucket, and the River.
"So many dangers to be wary of" Kaji sighs

We had a sudden, unexpected ice storm late Saturday afternoon. Freezing-Drizzle mixed with snow coating everything - making an icy world. Dad changed his evening plans to stay inside.
We had popcorn!

Dad has to go out a lot today - but sadly, instead of temperatures going up to melt the ice, the temps have fallen to keep everything slippery n nasty. Hope he doesn't fall.

Hope you have a great day. ~Wings Up~

Mom heard from Aunt Jane via email last night. They are having lots of 80 degree days, and getting sun. Chyna has made friends with an egret who hangs by the pool at the house they're renting.
It snowed here overnight, so mom shoveled the driveway and front walk. She wouldn't have done it so soon, but she has to work at the museum today. (It's supposed to snow again later and overnight.) It's FROZEN day at the museum, as well as another Ask the Scientist day, so mom is anticipating the place will be crawling with Olafs, Svens, Anyas, and Elsas, as well as cavorting reindeer, etc. The scientists will set up on the first floor, and mom will be on the third, with a Polar World cart and artifacts from the frozen north. On the way home she needs to stop for more broccoli and grapes, so I don't starve. We have lots of fruits and veggies, but I'm a picky eater! Hope you are having a great day filled with cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Hello, BirdChannel Gang!
I've developed a fun little time - when Dad opens the food/water doors of the cage, I slip out the hole. It's much more fun than the regular way of climbing out of the cage.
Daddy says "Holes are for Bowls" =but I just laugh and slip out that hole.

MOM PICKED UP THE HARRISONS PELLETS AND A FEW LIGHT THINGS AT THE GROCERY STORE. THEN SHE CAME HOME AND DID A BIG LOAD OF LANDRY. THIS MIGHT NOT SEEM LIKE MUCH BUT IT IS WHEN YOU ARE IN PIN AND ITS THE FIRST DAY YOU ARE OUT OF BED. MOMS BACK WAS ACHING AND SHE WAS GOING TO LAY DOWN WHEN DAD GOT SOME SORT OF VIRUS ON HIS COMPUTR AND STARTED YELLING TO MOM FOR HELP. MOM TOLD HIM TO TURN OFF THE COMPUTER AND CALL COMCAST. COMCAST SEURITY TOLD DAD NOT TO TURN ON HIS COMPUTER BUT USE MOMS COMPUTER SO THEY COULD INSTALL A ANTI VIRUS SOFTWARE ON HIS COMPUTER TO STOP THE VIRUS. MOM SAT THERE FOR 2HOURS WHILE DAD WOULDNT QUIT TALKING WHEN COMCAST WAS TELLING MOM WHAT TO DO. MOM HAD HER PHONE ON SPEAKER PHONE AND WHEN DAD WALKED INTO MOMS ROOM AND SAW SHE WASNT HOLDING THE PHONE HE STARTED YELLING AND MOM SAID SHE DIDNT HAVE TO HOLD THE HPHONE IT WAS ON SPEAKER PHONE SO DAD PICKED UP THE PHONE AND STARTED TALKING WITH THE SPEAKER PHONE ON AND NO ONE COULD UNDERSTAND HIM AND MOM GET TELLING DAD TO BE QUIET SO SHE COULD HEAR THE MAN FROM INDIA TELLING HER WHAT SHE SHOULD DO. DAD KEPT TELLING MOM NOT TO TELL HIM TO BE QUIET. IT JUST WENT ON AND ON. DAD IS NOT SUPPOSE TO TURN ON HIS COMPUTER UNTIL THE COMPUTER TECH NERD COMES ON MONDAY TO CLEAN IT. DAD DIDNT LISTEN AND MOM COUD HEAR DAD YELLING TO COMCAST ALL EVENING AND WHEN DAD WENT TO TELL MOM ABOUT IT SHE SAID SHE DIDNT WANT TO HEAR ANYMORE SO DAD IS MAD AT HER.

  Hello Chipper~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Mom spent way too much time running around today and I didn't like it at all. Everyone else had to go to work and all at different times. Dad was going to leave early but they changed his pick up time. He was gone for an hour and a half this morning and told mom he was going to get some groceries for the truck. He never made it so mom took him to the market before she took him to the truck! Just crazy today and it didn't seem like a day off for mom at all!
The good news is that the NFL said that Taima can lead the Seahawks out of the tunnel for the Superbowl! YAY! I don't know what the Seahawks would do without him! He is a very important member of the team! Even people who don't like the Seahawks have to admit that Taima is the coolest mascot in the entire NFL!
Dad tried putting the old phone, that went through the washer, in a bag of rice to see if it would dry out that way but so far it still won't turn on. I don't suppose it matters now since he has the new one.
I hope your evening is a relaxing one! Mom and I certainly plan on one!

I've been getting to Buddy's page every day since you told me, I hope he's getting tons of votes!
Today mom had a trainee at the center. They did the outdoor (big) squirrel pen in the back, rather than the squirrel porch. That was good, it gave the trainee and mom experience in navigating snow and ice to get to the animals. They had to go back to the building for more blankets and towels too, since there were more carriers back there than mom anticipated. She figured with 6 squirrels, probably 3 carriers, but there were 7 in there!
They also cleaned the recovery room, which has 3 snapping turtles, 3 box turtles, a cooper's hawk and a red tailed hawk recovering right now. The poor Cooper's hawk seems to have a head injury and his wing was wrapped. The staff took him down to the shelter to get an xray, but mom doesn't know how that turned out, since she left before they got back.
I think mom is with us the rest of the day, YAY! I hope you are getting lots of cuddles and scritches today. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Chipper
Hello Adventurers. As we draw close to Manuas, Brazil, we must be watchful for both human threats and the ever present threat from wildlife both on land and aquatic. Although the Hippo is an African animal, there are now over 50 individuals and counting living happily along the Amazon and other South American Rivers. In the late 1980s, Pablo Escobar kept four hippos in a private menagerie at his residence in Hacienda Nápoles, 100 km east of Medellín, Colombia, after buying them in New Orleans. They were deemed too difficult to seize and move after Escobar's fall, and hence left on the untended estate. By 2007, the animals had multiplied to 16 and had taken to roaming the area for food in the nearby Magdalena River. In 2009, two adults and one calf escaped the herd and, after attacking humans and killing cattle, one of the adults (called "Pepe") was killed by hunters under authorization of the local authorities. As of early 2014, 50 hippos have been reported to exist on the Amazon and it's tributaries.
With Mick Dundee departure after enjoying BB's lunch, the birds begin to wonder how they would get past the Hippos ahead in the River. Amando, Jenny-Lynn and Sky sit close, deep in discussion trying to figure out the safest way past the upcoming danger.
"I think we simply paddle by, staying as far away from them as we can. If we take one boat past at a time it shouldn't disturb them overly" Jenny-Lynn adds, worry on her face
"But if they do attack the boat and it is alone we might not be able to get there in time to help them." Sky adds
"I think we stay close together." Amando replies after some thought, " we paddle as little as we have to, let the river move us by"
"It might be best if we separate and place guards in each boat while passing the hippo pod." Jenny-Lynn directs
Sky and Amando agree, and set about moving guard birds into each boat. The nervous Adventures load their boats, and pushing off from shore, slowly paddle towards possible danger lurking the the River ahead. Finny and Chipper had reported back that the hippos were resting near the west bank of the river in shallow water. The birds move their boats towards the eastern shore, paddling carefully, ever watchful for danger. Rounding a sharp curve in the River near Manuas, JL in the lead boat with Sugar, Cookie, Raffi, Peepers, Laka, Strawberry and RT spots the first group of hippos. Resting submerged below the murky Amazon waters, just their heads exposed. Pointing she let's out a shrill whistle to inform the others that danger was ahead of them. JL directs her companions to stop paddling, and allows the boat to move slowly along pulled by the current of the water. Sky and Kaji's boats pass by the hippos without incident. Next boat to pass is LA and Dixie's group, guarded by Cappy. As Cappy instructs his friends to stop paddling, one huge male Hippo opens his mouth and lets out an angry roar.

  Hi chipper
I'm Not bad for an average CAG, living on pop's fixed income, in the land of sunshine and blue sky's. Give him his darn discount. Pushing right along, and I understand that when he's done with my business, it's off to the beach, to see the lovely sights. Actually, I do believe he will be eye-balling the babes. Ha, ha, ha.

Come visit me, JeTTa.

Hello BC!
Today was the first day in a long time I "stepped-up" on Daddy's hand and went to the proper place to poop. Daddy is thrilled. I hope this means the end of my moodies for a long while.
A busy weekend ahead. Sending all our love. Flitzer and Dad. ~Wings Up~

Come visit me, Flitzer.

  Hello Chipper~
I hope you guys are having a great day! It's been boring around here but that is just fine with me. Mom worked last night and now we have our weekend again! I think she should take 3 days off every week!!
Dad washed his $300 Galaxy phone in the washing machine last night! Guess what? It doesn't work anymore!hahahahaha He is a bigger dork than mom is and that's saying something! He really can't function without his phone. It's a very sad, sad thing!hehehehehehe
He went by Costco and got another one. Let's hope he doesn't wash this one! He got the warranty on it but I do not think it will cover things done to it by dumb users!
I hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Chipper
Hello fellow Amazon Adventurers. I was sure glad to see that Ms BB had welcomed her pal to join us for a part of our trip up the River. She musta known we were going to run into some nasty company along the way. Nothing worse then Crocs or gators for rocking the boat so to speak. Thankfully we had warning from Finny and the Green Angels. With BB's shuttle always on the ready she was able to have her friend Mick from Australia join us . He has a nickname of Crocodile Dundee. Mick stepped up on the bow of the long boat so the crocs could see him better. When they did they all headed for the bottom of the river & stayed there. They didn't want to be made into boots,belts,hats or luggage!!! I sorta feel sorry for them after Cappy and Little Angel got done with them.
"OK, enough with the green gator guys, Ok Crocs. Let me at' em. I'll show them a thing or five. I'll bite their noses, sparkle their tails and then......"Li
"il Angel yells at the crocs as they swim around the boats. "Oh you don't wanta wake the baby.
Too late....LOOK OUT CROC HERE I COMEEEEEEEEEEE." Little Angel grabs an oar and whacks the croc on the nose hard making tears come to his eyes.
Little Angel" Sky yells, "Stop hurting the Crocs, you're making them cry. OH no not that." He watches as she grabs one by the tail and bites down as hard as she can, "and trust me that's hard."
"Little Angel, I thought I told you be good?" Amando looks at her and can't help but grin as he watches the neon sparkled crocs swimming away in shame, that a little girl bird beat them up.
Everybirdie laughs as the crocs disappear. Then little Angel turns to see Mick standing on Ms BB's boat. She grins sheepishly and giggles. "Way ta go mate" Mick calls to her making LA happy.
"Whew! That was a close one! Thankfully, LA, Cappy and Ms. BB took care of those nasty crocs! Good grief! What will we encounter next?? Oh, oh....my Green Angels just informed me that there are some hippos up the river. Just what we need! Do be careful. Hippos are even more dangerous than crocs. We have to find baby Armando's Momma and get him home before anything else happens. I'm off to check on the hippo situation and really search for Armando's Momma. " Finny waves his good-bye as he heads off up-river to re-join the Green Angels as they gather information about the hippos.
Heading into shore, tie off their boats and relax. Its lunch time so Ms BB sets up her portable kitchen." How about deep fried gator bites, corn dogs and deep fried pickles?
I have been told by Mr Mick Dundee the gator bites taste like chicken. " Picabo makes a face at the thought of Gator bites. Boo Boo yells, " Bring'em on!"
"Then we can sneak past those Hippos and continue our hunt for the baby"s Mom & Dad."
As BB and the girls cook lunch, the boys bring out some maps and check for possible nesting sites ahead. As they look over the map Willie points to a treed area, "LOOK! A nesting area of Amazon species"

  Hi Chipper
We saw a bit of a warm up today, but the driveway is still icy in spots. Mom salted it this morning before she went to the museum. She had a tour with Kindergarten kids today. The teacher in charge told mom that she remembered her from last year! Of course, K kids are like herding cats, but it was okay, only one tour today.
Mom is thinking of going to Barnes and Noble to renew her membership, but it depends on what time we're done with our blogs. We let mom know our priorities. If she doesn't get there today, she'll make it tomorrow, for sure. Tonight is cleaning the cages night, so we all have to be ready to rearrange things once mom has finished disrupting our beautiful work.
I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of warm cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Happy Thursday from Flitzer
Happy Thursday. Running late today as Dad had an extended work-out at the gym ["Flitzer-Lifting" isn't enough exercise, I guess, as I ony weigh 80 grams].

Yesterday Dad and his best friend went to see "American Sniper". Dad doesn't take me to the theater but tells me all about it. i really wanna go sometime, cause I *love* popcorn.
