Hi! My name is Flitzer

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
Mom would like to know a little more about the End of the Tour, since she and her friend, Judy, are thinking it just might be their kind of movie. Any more details?

Well, I got out for my sunbath by 9:30, but it was probably not necessary to go that early. The cool down continues with a high of only 80 today! It was quite pleasant outside, and Mom even sat in the sun for a little while. And the nice lady with the two little white dogs came by and said hi. Ms Gardenia Tree is covered in blooms, so Mom did move over and sit right under two freshly opened blossoms and enjoyed them while reading her kindle.

Then she decided not to go to the gym for zumba, and I am sure it was because she wanted to be with me and had nothing to do with the new book she downloaded on that kindle today. Hmmm, should I be jealous of her kindle? I do know when I try to chew on it, she won't let me. I find that very selfish on her part, don't you?

And we are having roast beef wraps for lunch, but that darned Dad did in fact pick up spinach for my mom yesterday. So you just know there will be green stuff in there. Oh well, I just spit it out on her shoulder anyway.

  Hi Flitzer
It's Sawyer.
We're not completely sure what went on yesterday. For some reason mom was in a really bad mood. Poor dad. No matter what he did, it wasn't right. Dad finally took mom to the police station, where she had an even worse day but dad got floors mopped and even installed some new radio antennas on his car. By the time dad picked up mom the weather had cooled off so things were better. Dad grilled lamb chops and cooked some lima beans for dinner and had home made brownies for dissert.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 83 and a low of 62. Bob is dropping by later this morning and they all are going to lunch.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Sawyer.

  Hi Flitzer
Thank you for the short editorial on the movie, greatly appreciate that.
In response to your query about not liking JJ, sometimes we birds just decide we don't like someone[like Zippy not preferring mom--eggcept for bringing FOOD]--cause mom put medicine down her crop YEARS ago. Then, there was a budgie that mom would trap his toes between her fingers to 'catch' it to put it in the cage at night--it LIKED mom but NOT mom's hand. Y'know we animals sense fear in other beings too. Does JJ fear 'the beak'? Has dad shown off any 'war wounds' from you? It might be to work on JJ's fear and just spend time. Eventually to leave just JJ, not dad or Uncle Geno as company for you and you might like JJ better. (My dad has a treat that only HE gives me, he is working on that being our 'thing')

  Morning Mr Flitzer, fromJennifer Lynn
We have Summer returning to our area for about a week, not a big deal, but the A/C came on about 7:00 AM for the first time in nearly three weeks! With us it is the same old story, dad is running hopelessly behind his normal duties (but he is caring for us), he will do anything to make sure we are fed, watered, and properly loved, he is all we have, and we are all he has, our own private entertainment committee! Dad would love to hold one of the owlets aunt Arlene speaks of, but he is aware they do not just bite like Jenny would, they rip and tear flesh, but oh so beautiful! Have a great day dear BC friends, and as usual, give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

Love always from Jenny & our Dallas family

  Hi, Flitzer
Wish we had some words of wisdom for your dad. Sounds like you tried to be friends at one point and maybe just have to start the process over. Know that any bad behavior must be ignored and maybe more locked in if being nippy. Otherwise be patient, reward/praise anything positive.

As others have said like hoomans some we like, some we don't and just tolerate. Just keep everyone safe.

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

  Hi Flitzer
Yes, we do form attachments for some and others we dislike on sight. My dad is my enemy, and I just know he can't be trusted. The books say to have the "least favored person" give a treat to the bird, but when Dad offered me a peanut I went for his fingers instead. After 10 years I tolerate him, especially if Mom is not home. We will never be friends. That is just the way it is.

Not a lot to report today. It being Monday and still hot, I did not get my sunbath. By the time Mom gets home from the gym the trash trucks are all done, but it was mid 80s which is a big improvement but still too warm for a sunbath. Mom doesn't leave for the gym tomorrow until nearly 11, so I will get out there before she goes for sure. Only one pb cookie left in the bag, so maybe it will cool off enough for Mom to bake tonight.

Meanwhile we had a very nice roast beef and Swiss on rye sandwich for lunch, and Yay! Mom is out of spinach. Boo! Dad is going to stop by Valley Produce to pick up some fresh Parmesan for his sketti, and he promised to get her some spinach too. I knew there was a reason I didn't like that man!

  Hello Flitzer~
I hope you and dad are having a great day! It's not unusual for a bird not to like a certain person. You might sense that he is not comfortable around birds or it may just be that you haven't seen him enough to realize he is an okay human!
Wish I had some good ideas for you but I just get locked up when someone comes over.

Today is my last day in the castle.The last two months have been awesome and I'm honored to be able to share my heritage and traditions and the real truth with you.
I have come to all of you with a pure heart filled with love.Carry that love with you in everything you do and every journey you may go on. Love is very powerful in my tribe.
Today I'm offering you something very powerful.

The gift of life from our creator and all our service men who have turned from warriors to soldiers to fight for all of us now and before and fight for our lives and our freedom.

I have two or three pages in my gallery with pictures.Please honor our service men and women by picking up a few pictures and putting them in your gallery...

Let these these pictures be reminders of why we are all here and safe with our freedom.As you look at the pictures always say a prayer in honor for all our US Soldiers.You can pick out as many and any picture with the warriors heart who calls out to you.

I also have a picture of my uncles war pony. Her name is Winter moon. The first bird who claims her can pick up her picture and take her home with with you.
There are also pictures from the artists from my tribe. You can pick those up too.

Well it's the end of my trail as your King War Chief.
May the Great Spirit Watch over you...

Love

Mommy's busy making German potato salad for the annual bird club picnic tomorrow, and skin sis is making an amazing dessert. Wish I could go and have some of that wonderful food. There probably won't be any left to bring home either. Mommy did let me help lick the beaters though this morning. Boy, were they ever good! Skin sis is leaving Tues. and Mommy is leaving either Tues. or Wed. for CO to visit another skin sis. So my blogs will be very erratic if at all for a while.

It's a warm, but cloudy day today with a little chance of rain. It has been a while since we had rain and sure could use it. The art festival is this weekend in the park across the road. It's really busy today with tons of cars, and people visiting and looking at all the work from local artists.
I have been doing well,and haven't fell in a while, so i get to have a big girl cage now. I used to fall from the roof of my c ge to the floor all the time, and slip of perches a lot. I have learned to get around fast on one leg and balance a lot better.

What a cutie in that crown!
This morning mom had a terrible time signing on to BC. It took at least a dozen tries from everywhere on the computer but we're here now!
We got a big surprise yesterday, thanks Uncle Chuck! Mom says they match the kitchen perfectly! And we love our new toys, too.
Well, Aunt Rose is on her way to meet us soon, and we know she's meeting lots of BC folks on the way here, too. It sounds like the ideal vacation to us.
It looks like a perfect summer day here, so we know where mom will be. At least for the afternoon, that is. Later on, she's ours. Tomorrow morning John comes to fix the wall for the backsplash and install the new floor. Mom told him to be here well before noon, so she can go to the pool, hahaha!
I hope you are having a great summer day with lots of good weather and cuddles, too. Hugs, Peppino

  Hi Flitzer
HAPPY TGIF DAY
vulture populations are plummeting in Africa
Africa's eight vulture species have declined in number by an average of 62 percent during the last 30 years. vultures are one of nature's most important scavengers—a flock can strip a carcass in a matter of minutes.these natural recyclers, which breed slowly and need years to mature, could be extinct in Africa in the next 50 to 100 years.

poisoning from eating pesticide-laced carcasses caused as many as 60 percent of the vulture deaths recorded since the 1970s.When a large predator such as a lion kills livestock, a farmer will sometimes sprinkle poison on the carcass to kill the predator in retaliation, Vultures usually get to the corpse first. They die after eating the pesticide-laced carcasses intended for lions and other predators. Pesticides are poorly regulated in Africa, and sold as "lion killer" . many farmers don't know what the chemicals are really used for.vultures have largely disappeared from commercial farming areas where pesticide are used

Vultures often collide with the wind turbines and are crushed or are electrocuted by power lines

Vultures are also also targets for poachers, who sell their parts to people who use witchcraft. The birds are known for their tremendous eyesight, and many believe their body parts can be used to see into the future.Their brains are ground to snuff by witch doctors who believe the substance has magical powers.

The scavengers also die after feeding on carcasses left behind by poachers. Illegal hunters poison the corpses to throw off law enforcement, which use circling vultures as a beacon for illegal activity.500 dead vultures were found surrounding a pesticide-laden elephant carcass poachers had poisoned leaving the bodies to rot. terrorists groups are profiting the most from poaching affording them lucrative profits to buy guns and bombs

I hope you had a fun day today! So glad you enjoyed your day in the spotlight!
Sorry the film wasn't that good. Your dad is correct! Sometimes they are going to stink!

  Heya, Flitzer!
So did it get cooler in your neck of the woods? We are rainy, and have temps in the 60's again. Supposed to warm up next week, but for now it is rainy and chilly. Feels like autumn!!

Wing hugs coming your way!
Your buddy,
Kaji
