Hi! My name is King Flitzer sends his love

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

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

6 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..

Hope your Dad didn't break anything flopping around on the ice..Were the roads ok for him to drive, or did he get his exercise shoveling ice like Mom's been doing?

  Hi Flitzer
It's Ginger.
Mom and dad saw a great movie yesterday. It's called "Spare Parts". It's about some kids from a tuff neighborhood who enter a robotics contest. It's a "feel good" movie with a happy ending, and it's a true story with a positive message to young people. Mom and dad liked the movie better than any award winning movie they've seen this year.
This week is restaurant week here in Orange County. Mom's parronts are taking mom and dad to lunch at a real nice place. During restaurant week the restaurants prepare special menus and great prices. It's a fun time.
Today will be clear, with a high of 74 and a low of 48.
Something grey may be coming to the La Habra.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Ginger.

  Hi, King Flitzer
That is good of your dad to try to keep up with normal activities despite the icy conditions. Think ice skates would help? Sure sounds dangerous to try to walk on the ice or water covered ice without falling.

We love apples! Gotta be raw, have the skin still on, sliced in slim wedges, yummy!

I went into the confessional box after decades of being away from the Church...

Inside I found a fully equipped bar with Guinness on tap.

On one wall, there's a row of decanters with fine Irish whiskey and Waterford crystal glasses.

On the other wall is a dazzling array of the finest cigars and chocolates.

Then, the priest comes in and I said to him…

"Father, please forgive me, for it's been a very long time since I've been to confession…

But I must first admit that the confessional box is much more inviting than it used to be."

The priest then replied…

" You moron, you're on my side." RT

Pretty cool pic you have up! I saw that movie with my parronts (rented it). I thought you would be in the movie too.
Oh no, you had your awesome hawk claws trimmed ... so sorry. But, dad time is worth it.
It was just another sunless snowy day. Not as bad as we thought it would get but yes, dad was out plowing. I was busy helping mom with laundry.

  Heya, King Flitzer!
Oh! Michael Keaton is truly a birdman! Great picture!!

Mom worked from home today cuz when she woke up, she saw snow, and it was coming down pretty good. She was not about to venture out in it, as the highway looked pretty bad, with snow all over it, and people driving like snails. Which is a good thing, as it was heavy and people were skidding off the road. So I had her at my beck and call, and boy did I! Call that is. I have no idea what beck means, other than Kanye West saying that he did not deserve the Grammy. I don't think that is the answer, do you?

Other than that, I am glad to have Mom home. She was happy to be home. And I helped her out when she was on the phone with work during a meeting. I made all kinds of cool noises. Her co-workers were suitably impressed. Mom says that birds should be seen and not heard during meetings, but I never listened to her before when she did it. Hehe!!

Hope you don't get more snow your way. The freezing stuff came down but not enough to coat the snow much. Whew. I hate winter. Mom hates winter. We need to go someplace warm!!

  Hi King Flitzer
Well, we got a little more rain (.27") last night to bring us up to .91 for the past 5 days. All that uproar and 2 or was it 3 different storms, and it all adds up to less than an inch! However the lawn sure seemed to like it. Just a week since Dad mowed, and it is a jungle out there. Should have a warm up this weekend which means a sunbath for me and sun tea for Mom.

Mom was feeling a little ooky this morning, so she skipped zumba. She figured jumping around while her tummy was doing strange things was not a good idea. I agreed, since she spent the time reading her kindle with me.

I hate to admit it, but Dad is a genius. He brought out the old radio/CD player that he had stowed away because the CD player part didn't work, and now I have sound in my room again. And then he reminded Mom that when she replaced the TV in the bedroom, it was because she wanted an upgrade. That TV still worked. So they tried hooking it up in the living room, and voila! They just saved about $550!! Mom asked Dad if she owed him that much since she was going to buy the new stuff, and he just laughed at her....so maybe he's not so smart after all.

  Hi King Flitzer
today is World Wildlife Day—a day to celebrate the amazing variety of animals with which we share the planet and a special day to raise awareness of the plight of wildlife.

The United Nations has designated March 3 as World Wildlife Day, described by the UN as “an opportunity to celebrate the many beautiful and varied forms of wild fauna and flora and to raise awareness of the multitude of benefits that conservation provides to people. At the same time, the Day reminds us of the urgent need to step up the fight against wildlife crime, which has wide-ranging economic, environmental and social impacts and obstacles faced by those who wish to conserve populations of endangered species and their habitats all over the world.

Wildlife crime is a key issue when it comes to the conservation of increasingly dwindling environmental resources shared by humans, plants and animals. Without the help of citizens all over the globe, wildlife crime will remain a threat to our world and all who share it. Thousands of species are decreasing at alarming rates as ruthless profiteers prey on the most vulnerable populations around the world.The illegal wildlife trade is among the worst and most lucrative transnational crimes, after drugs, arms, and human trafficking. Global commercialization of wild animals and plants is a multi-billion dollar industry that results in extreme animal cruelty and severe population declines.

On World Wildlife Day, we ask that you reflect on how wildlife crime is endangering our planet, and what you can do to help.

Today, on World Wildlife Day, speak out loudly for wildlife—because they can't speak out for themselves!

Did your dad see Birdman? Mom wants to see it, if it's good. We don't even know the plot, though. Winter is brutal in Buffalo. We have family in Syracuse, where it's not much better.
There's not much going on today. Mom is going to have a late lunch/early dinner with her sister later, after they shop at Barnes and Noble and maybe a few other places. Other than that, it's a dull day here.
It's supposed to go up to 42 today, which will mean that a lot of the nasty ice will melt, but mom never believes that until it happens. I hope you are having a great day, staying warm, and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

It's Sawyer.
The rain that was predicted for yesterday never showed up. There were rain clouds all around us but when they got close to us they turned around and went the other way. Not Fair!
Mom and dad filled the car up with gas yesterday afternoon. Dad looked around for the loan officer so he could finance the gas but couldn't find him. Then they had a nice Japanese dinner and then to the movies to see The Hobbit. It was almost 11pm when they got home. Meanwhile we were in lockdown. Hummmph!
Today will be clear, with a high of 68 and a low of 47.
Hope your day is fun.

Glad you had a greyt time.
Oh yes, we get nasty winter storms in March with snow in April, May and sometimes June :(
We had another sunny day with 18 degrees. Tuesday it's back to a winter weather advisory. It looks like an all day snow. The bad part is, we always get a really bad winter storm at the beginning of March or the end. So far, it came in as a lamb ... oh oh! Well, it's back to the footie pj's and hot chocolate for me.

  Hi King Flitzer
since we are still getting winter advisory warnings, more snow and temps still dropping down to the low 10s i thought i would talk about chickadees those cute little black and white balls of fluff we see flying around outside in this weather. Chickadees Are Cold Weather Machines

Though any bird that survives winter in the North amazes those of us that depend on furnaces and warm blankets, the black-capped chickadee may be the most incredible of all winter survivors. although none can compare to the emperor penguin thats for sure.

“Black-capped Chickadees have a wonderful assortment of adaptations for the winter. “Carefully hidden food items, dense winter coats, specially selected winter roost cavities, and perhaps most remarkable of all, the ability to go into nightly hypothermia, thus conserving large amounts of energy, greatly increases the chances of survival,” The ability to go into regulated hypothermia actually lowers the chickadee’s body temperature in a controlled manner, down to about 12 or 15 degrees (F.) below their normal daytime temperature of 108 degrees (F.). This remarkable adaptation allows the bird to conserve almost 25 percent of its hourly metabolic expenditure when the outside temperature is at freezing. The lower the outside temperature, the more energy conserved

“Chickadees are not the suburban wimps that some people think they are as every winter morning chickadees replace the fat they used overnight and struggle against starvation and stinging cold. even though they are tough survivors that live close to the edge of life i still find myself partial to Bue Jays as i spot their bright blue color against the white snow and hear them calling out to me every morning. at least i like to think they are calling out to me.
