Hi! My name is Flitzer w Uncle Geno

I am a Green-Cheeked Conure from Buffalo, NY.

"My Little Love", "Flitter-Bug", "King Flit-Flit", "Mr. Poopers"

7 years old   M

Green-Cheeked Conure

Carrots, Apples, Bananas, Brocoli. Doritos, Edy's Fruit Bars. Peanuts

Wooden Perch, Happy Hut, Daddy's shoulder

I speak "Bird", not "English". Please stop trying to make me say things in English. I say: "Kiss-Kiss" when Daddy greets me in the morning, and "Seeds" when it's Seed-Time. ..isn't that enough?

He makes up silly songs about me. He says "I love you" every chance he gets.

Dad knows that ^I* am THE BIRD, and treats me like a King.


love to twirl forks and spoons.

I'm The Bird. Pretty birrrrd..

  Hi, Flitzer
Sounds like your dad has done all he can to ensure you will be well cared for while he visits his mom. Many don't enjoy flying but it is the quickest way to get to faraway places. Hopefully weather is fine for the flight and that he has a good visit. Be good for Aunt Kathy. We eggspect you'll like when Uncle Geno visits.

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

...you just keep helping your daddy pack, most humans need our help, LOL! We have another rainy and overcast day, it is getting very old! For the most part all of dad's meeting went well, but he will need to adjust some of his meds, especially the diuretics, the smaller amount was causing excess water retention and edema! Another appointment today and our nurse comes tomorrow, she is a welcome guest, always so pleasant and caring! Dad plans to rest as much as possible today, they ran him ragged yesterday! Have a great ToosDay, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow BC friends...

Forever love from Jenny, Ms LaLo, Ziggy, Angel Christy, & our tired daddy

  hi Flitzer and uncle Mark
Tuesday is no longer mom's humpday ! Now it's a Wednesday just like the rest of the world :) She and her co-coach cleaned up the stage after school yesterday and put all the props and sets away. When she got home we played peek a bird ! It is a favorite game of mine - we play it like hide and seek - I hide under a heap of paper or in a box and mom calls for me . . . and calls and calls . . . till I holler PEEK-A-BIRD !

We are in the middle of a dreary rainy week - on and off all week long. The sun came out just long enough last night for the parronts to go take a walk by the river while I enjoyed my nutriberri. After some skritching time, it was night-night. Now I've got today to look forward to :)

Be good to the bird-sitter ! Make dad proud when he gets home ! love Cookie

  Hi Flitzer
Is your dad going to the KY Derby too???? If so, I'm so jealous!

Today was pretty boring ... laundry day. I faked being so tired that I had to rest. When mom wasn't looking, I was busy chewing up a wood toy. After she was finished, I had all the energy of a sugar buzz .... hehehe. Yes, I was chatty and playful and charming of course. Tomorrow, mom wants to paint her closet ... I feel a relapse coming on ....

  Heya, Flitzer!
Oh, we do understand about not being thrilled to travel (flying now is a pain, too, depending on the airports you have to use). She likes to fly. But she HATES to leave me!! Maybe the reason you don't like Aunt Kathy is cuz she is a woman? You like Uncle Geno, and your Dad, so maybe it is just that you like guys better. Be nice to Aunt Kathy, though.

Mom's dental appt. went well today. The insurance still is up in the air. Mom thought she had 50% coverage, but she doesn't. She has 25%, but she is glad to have the insurance. Next January it will bump up to 50% across the board for the major stuff, which is okay.

Mom stopped by the office today to make sure Frank said something about the cabinet. Not sure when it will be taken care of. We are hoping soon (before the bottom totally disintegrates!) We will have to wait until the owner comes, which should be relatively soon. They do a good job on the buildings--or Mom would not have stayed here 18 years.

Have a super rest of the night! Wing hugs coming atcha!

  Hi Flitzer
Don't bite Aunt Kathy! That is the hand that feeds you for the next several days.

Well, Mom went to the gym this morning, and this time she wasn't back home in 15 minutes! Yep, she made it thru the warm up just fine, so Becky said she was ready for a session. Of course, then she made it a balance work out rather than anything more strenuous, but Mom still got a bit sweaty. They chatted between sets so Mom wouldn't get too worn out as well. Becky said she needs to be careful till she builds herself back up, so Mom didn't stay for zumba. She is thinking she will try it on Wednesday afternoon though.

And yay!! I got a sun bath today! It got up to 74 today, and since Mom got me outside right at noon it was warm but not too hot at all. We both sat in the sun for 30 minutes, but then I got antsy so we went back inside. Oh! And I climbed right into my carrier to go out there with no argument.

Mom was so pleased with me that she shared a hot pastrami and provolone on rye (or half of one anyway) for lunch, and then we had a peanut butter cookie for a treat afterwards. I sure do love those things! Yum!!

I just know you'll be missing your daddy while he's gone just like I always missed my Mom when she took off on vacation and didn't take me with her!But if Aunt Kathy counts down the days for you the time will pass by much more quickly for you!It sure helped me alot when my fid sitter counted the days for me!
This morning was a dark drizzly day with the highs for the day of 55 the lows of 45 and right now its 49.After Mom got dad off to work she got our bean mix, eggs and angel hair pasta ready and Dixie's antibiotics ready.Then she got us up and cleaned our cages and swept our room and we got our bean mix.Then she washed the kitchen and bathroom floor and scrubbed out our water bottles.It got really dark here and then it really started pouring down heavy.We are supposed to get this kind of weather for the rest of the week.What happened to our May sunshine and warm temperatures?We can't wait to get outside and go for stroller rides or sit in the sunshine on the deck getting a nice soaking shower to dry off in the sunshine and Mom wants to be able to put her wash outside and not have to keep using the dryer!UggggH!Other than Mom working on chores all day today its going to be another wonderful boring day here for us!Nothing of interest going on at all!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm GCC hugs and soft GCC kisses for my GCC friend!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

  Hi Flitzer
You hang in there, dad will be back from his vacation soon. You can be a good boy!
Mom talked to about 50 people yesterday about the pterosaurs hanging from the overlook. She spelled it wrong yesterday, for anyone looking them up: It's cycnoramphus, with a y not an i. They have weird mouths, tiny teeth only in the front. There were lots of people using the elevator and the stairs on the overlook, just not that many stopping to look at what mom had to show. She even had a cast of a pterodactyl for folks to touch.
After the museum, mom went to Barnes and Noble to use the coupons she had. As usual, it didn't take her long to find things to read.
Today at the center mom had the avian nursery to do. There are some nestlings there who had to eat every 30 minutes, and she had the timer for them, too. The nestlings were a little fuzzy finch, a Carolina wren, and a baby robin. There were also several mallards in there, 10, at least, in 2 cages with decoy moms and mirrors. There was a baby goose with a decoy mom in its cage, too. There were the usual mourning doves and pigeons, as well as an eastern screech owl, a cardinal, and a pileated woodpecker. Mom also set up a cage for a grey catbird, but didn't see it, as it was still in the treatment room.
She was a few minutes late getting out today; that was a lot of birds, with the baby feedings thrown in.
Now, mom is home with us, hoping to finish a book today, and maybe get some laundry going. Tomorrow Falco has a follow up appointment with the vet; she is seeing that girl before rush hour starts, YAY! She's going to see more than 2 feathers growing in, too. Mom says it looks like a bunch of chest feathers are coming. I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

It is positively uncalled of me to not have replied to your last message, definitely not like me at all, Floop, and I apologize. I so rarely get messages, i don't go to the computer, and besides I would destroy the keyboard in less than 5 minutes. har har har Yesterday I gave mom a warning nip and back in my cage I went for a time out and when I said no bite bad, I was allowed out again and I was good. Well, it is spring time and I do sometimes forget the strength of my beak. Our dad has a short beard, like your dad's but we cannot play in it. Your Uncle Geno's looks like I could groom it. I wish you could come here while your dad is on vacation. We have fun here! Hopefully the time will go by fast for you. See you soon my friend.

Hopefully, despite the cold rain here, life will return to normal now that mom's drama club is done till November . . . Yesterday I squawked for an early night-night since it was so dark and dismal - that was OK though, since I think mom was ready too ! She and dad did pick up my peas and string beans earlier, and some more calculator paper for my art projects, so I'll be ready for today.

Oh, what a greyt picture of Uncle Geno and you! And that is so awesome that you will get to see Uncle Geno while your Dad is gone. That should make you a little happier, shouldn't it?

We had another dismal, grey day here today. We did get to 50, but it only felt like the low 40's due to the wind. Damp. Rain on and off. Guess you get the general gist of things--another blah day outside.

However, Mom and I want to wish you all a very happy Lei Day! We love Hawaii, which most of you know, so we always look forward to Lei Day as it means May is here, and we love May! Derby, Mom's Day, Mom's BD, my adoption day...yeah, May is our month.

Oh my mom sure hates going on vacation too cause we miss each other so much.
I knew mom didn’t get those feathers cut short enough! Yep she went today and flew off. After she got us all breakfast (her, dad and me) and my bean mix made and a bowl of fruit made in the frig for dad to give me she went to pick up the one grand and then to skin sis and picked her and that grand up and they went shopping. The one grand is going to the 8th grade farewell event but the other grand doesn’t want to go. Really neither wants to get all dressed up to go but some friends are talking the grand into going so she needed a dress for the occasion. The grands pitching coach is getting married in October so imagine the grand will wear it then too. Mom got dad a couple pair of jeans there since mom can usually find his size there in the brand he likes. I was glad that dad was home with me and yep I got that bowl of fruit in the afternoon. I was glad when I heard mom pull in the garage though!! “A memory last forever never does it die. True friends stay together and never say goodbye.” Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

What an awesome sweet pic of you and Uncle Geno!It looks like you both are having some good snuggle time together!
This morning was a dull,dismal,dark,dreary day here.The highs for the day will be 53 the lows of 41 and its 47 right now and cold and raining.Mom got us all up this morning and cleaned our cages,swept our room and fed us our bean mix with eggs!We all just love eggs!Then she got dad his breakfast of raisin toast and coffee and then made dad his peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the work week and then the two skin sibs called her and drove her crazy.Mom managed to get a wash in the washer and was going to hang the sheets out on the line when she forgot to get the laundry out of the washer and dad told her it has already started to rain.Mom is so tired of going back and forth with both skin sibs about the apartment next door to skin sis.Skin bro went up to meet with the landlord and at the last minute backed out of it.He later found two places that included everything and he's got an appointment for one tomorrow at 5:30pm and the other one you have to go in person to look at.They don't take phone calls,Mom is hoping that he'll take one of them at least and get this thing over with once and for all.Mom thought that she would have a nice quiet day here but skin sis still is coming over to do her laundry and bring our frother and fister with her.Mom is hoping that she'll take more of her stuff back with her.She was hoping that skin bro was going to come and take all his box springs and mattresses out this weekend but now Mom's gotta wait longer for that to happen.It looks like Mom will have to wait til tomorrow to have a nice quiet day.Mom hasn't gotten much done today at all except be on the phone with both skin sibs.Skin sis came over and did her laundry and Mom clipped Peepers flight feathers.Mom made lunch for everyone,skin sis and Mom had broccoli,onions,diced tomatoes and parmesan cheese with angel hair noodles.Then Mom made lime jello for dessert.Dad had soup and crackers.Skin sis finished her laundry while Mom cleaned up the kitchen.Mom made a tuna noodle casserole,but everyone had a very late lunch and no one is interested in eating dinner so Mom will have it for tomorrow night's dinner.Skin sis finally went home after 6:00pm and Mom ran upstairs and took a shower and made up the bed with dad.Because of the rain here all her wash had to go in the dryer.
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm GCC hugs and soft GCC kisses!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

  Hi Flitzer
I don't let my mom take vacations! No one else can handle me!!

Well, Mom abandoned me right after breakfast to go put gas in Gloria before the cheap station got too busy. And then she went grocery shopping with Dad, but I forgive her for that since she brings home my sugar snap peas, nanners and grapes. However she also brought home a salad for lunch, and although she expected me to enjoy sharing it since it had corn and beans (Southwestern style chicken salad), I was not really impressed. Amazingly I did eat a tiny piece of lettuce, but the second one I picked up ended up on Mom's shoulder.

And although it is warm enough for a sunbath today, Dad suggested Mom wait one more day before sitting out in the sun to make sure the antibiotic is out of her system completely. A sunburn right now would not be fun, eggspecially since she is pretty sure she will be good to go for the gym tomorrow (no zumba yet, though). I wouldn't cooperate about getting into my carrier anyway, so Mom took that as a sign that a sunbath was not a good idea today.

BooBoo had a greyt idea: since we do not have a candidate for BOTM this month, why don't we all vote for Laka again so she can get her BOTM plaque from BC. In case you didn't know, apparently BC has started doing that again, and Grey Bird actually received his plaque. Laka and Kacey & Mikey should deserve the same recognition.

You guys look adorable there! Likewise, we are preparing for the birdsitter at the end of the month. She will have her hands full with the 12 of us plus the additional 2 tiels. Birdsonaly, I am very pleasant to Mandy and thinks she does a wonderful job. My fister Kookie always sulks and give her the stink eye because mandy will no allow her out of her condo. Get over it, sis! We all are in lockdown while the parronts are away and have to be good birds and boys and girls. Another soaking cold weekend, blah! Some sunshine would be nice. Mom has our full spectrum light on us today. (and the heat) Love and winghugs, Baldrick

  Hi Flitzer
uou and Uncle Geno look so sweet together. Hopefully you will be good for the bird sitter this time. I bet it will help having uncle Geno stopping in to check on you.
Been a gloomy cool dull weekend here but I have been getting a ton of mom time so that's a plus. Have a good afternoon buddy.

Come visit me, Hulk vote Laka BOTM.

  Hi Flitzer,
Oh my your dad is going on vacation? Without you? Well, he'll be home before you know it. I'm sure.

Just keep busy, that's a good way to pass the time. :)

Here's a vote for you.

Hugs,

Laka

  Hi Flitzer
It's Sawyer.
Dad finally worked on the front lawn and at least part of it looks better. He's going to try to get more done today. Not sure how much because their friends from Colorado will be here today. Not sure how much we'll be on the BC this next week. It depends on how busy mom and dad are with their friends.
Mom made homemade gumbo last night. Sure did smell good but dad said we couldn't have any because it was too spicy for us. Hey, we like spicy!
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 76 and a low of 53.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Sawyer.

  Hi, Flitzer
It is tough for us fids to understand about parronts leaving for vacation without us. We've been left at home with someone coming to tend to our basic needs and we've also been taken to the grandparronts (birdhouse and all) to stay there. That is more fun since gma plays piano and love to listen to that.

Hopefully you will be polite to Aunt Kathy and good that Uncle Geno will also visit since we know you enjoy his company.

Temps went into the 70s yesterday and should reach the low 80s today before cooling back down. Just too high for spring we say.

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  hi Flitzer
Rain here in NY today . . . but that's OK, cause there's not a lot going on. Mom is recovering from last night. The show went really well - only one little actor missed a line, and it wasn't an important one. The cast party was LOUD. She was even able to eat a slice of pizza ! ! Thank goodness in junior high there's only one performance unlike high schools which do two full weekends. Don't think she could do that ! Me either - I do love my daddy, but he's not a very good tucker inner and mom had to fix my blankee when she got home about half past midnight.

She will go out later to get me my fresh veggies - yesterday she got hers and daddy's foods. I'll try to be a good boy and let her rest . . . have a great day - won't you fit in dad's suitcase ?

love Cookie

  Hi Flitzer!
Hi Everybirdie! Tonight is the last night! I am so excited! Mom was finally able to pick up all of the bird toy parts that have been scattered around her room for the past month. She was happy about that! Haha! Tonight we are making a toy that looks like bird. You will need,

- Cardboard
- Coffee filters
- Finger traps
- Beads
- Little bird toy trinket pieces
- Safe stringing material
- OPTIONAL white paper

Take a large piece of cardboard and cut out a nice sized bird head and body. Once you have the body cut out, take a piece of string and knot the bottom, then poke a hole in sorta in the middle of your cutouts body, but a little lower. String your string through the hole, with the knot being on the back side. Take some coffee filters, and cut the sides into strips and poke holes in the middles. String those on like you would for a puff, one facing down, one facing up, and so on, until it is a nice sized puff on the body. String on a bead and knot it. Now poke a hole in the middle of the cutout near the bottom. Take a piece of string and knot them bottom, then string it through the hole with the knot on the front side (you won't see it, it will be under the puff). Take three finger traps, and string those on. Then string on a bead and knot it tight. Once they are tied, you can stick them out in different directions like a tail. For the head, it will be different for everyone depending on what kind of bird you want it to look like. We did a Green Cheek Conure. If you want an eye ring, cut out a small oval and poke a hole in the middle. Then to attach the eye, poke a hole on the cutout where you want it to be, take a piece of string and tie a knot at the bottom, string it through, and then string on the paper, and then a dark bead. Then knot it. To put on markings, you will do the same thing with the holes and string. Just add them (beads and random toy pieces) however you'd like in what ever colors you want. To make it so that you can hang it, you can make a loop, make a small hole in the cutouts head, and then string the loop through. Or, you can tie a bagel to a piece of string, then make a small hole in the cutout under the puff and string it through the hole with the bagel on the back side. Then knot it. You can then attach it by sticking the bagel through the cage bars and turning it the opposite way so that it stays.

I will post a picture of both the front and back sides of this toy in my gallery.

Thank you SO much for voting for me!

Hugs,
Grey Bird

  Hi Flitzer
I never get to go on vacation with my mom either but I do go on vacation to my skin sis when mom goes and I like it there but boy do I miss mom and she sure misses me too. One reason mom doesnt go much though.
Today mom was home all day though she was downstairs cleaning a little bit so I had to be in my condo then. Maybe this feather trim is keeping her home now.
After she got her feather trim yesterday all her curls were gone so she had to give herself another perm when she got home. When mom does that she hides out in the back room till she is done because she doesn’t want me around the stinky stuff. Good it don’t take her long though and a double good cause dad was home so I could be out of the condo at least.
I did get my bath today and mom blow dried me cause it was a little chilly and she don’t want me getting chilled. I am still fixing my feathers and picking out all those little white fuzzies too.
Mom got her duplicate drivers license today in the mail so she will put those back and use her original ones though. She has to get new ones next year for her birthday present anyway LOL. “A memory last forever never does it die. True friends stay together and never say goodbye.” Your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Flitzer
Count down! Really, can't you go too? Sometimes I beg. Sometimes I get LEFT at the vet's or the pet store(Mom was not as happy with them). At the vet's at least I get talked to and watched over much better. Its also lots more expensive and further away.
When my mom leaves me, skinbro will be home to help watch over us.

  Hi Flitzer,

How are you, Buddy? It's Parker.

Not too much going on here. It's a gorgeous day in Philly though. Yesterday was cold & rainy & tomorrow we're having more rain but it'll be in the 60's.

Hope you're having a nice weekend with your Dad. Here's a vote for you, Flitzer. Bye for now.

Winghugs,
Parker

  hi Flitzer and uncle Mark
That would seem like an eternity - that many night-nights without your daddy - I'm sorry. You can come perch here if you get lonely !

What a lovely afternoon yesterday ! Mom came straight home from school plopped down on the sofa and skritched my head :) When I started squawking, she brought me my bath tub and we both got soaked before settling down for a nice long talk and the singing of some songs :) Daddy made burritos for dinner so mom didn't even have to leave me to fix dinner ! ! Then I got apple for dessert ! ! Life is good !

It'll be even better after the weekend of drama club ! This morning she and dad will do some grocery shopping before she heads back to school to start getting everything ready. I'll bet she'll even try to take a nap - cause it'll be a mighty late night ! Cast party till midnight ! Two adults with 47 young teens (6-8 grade) ! Pretty scary !

Well, you have a great Saturday ! See you tomorrow :) love Cookie
