Hi! My name is Flitzer

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.

  Hi Flitzer
I was hatched AuGUSt 25 and that is how I got my name from the AuGUSt. Lots more behind the month and date also.
It sure was a pretty day here today. Yesterday was nice but thinking today was even better if that was at all possible. When mom got some things done here in the morning I got to go outside and got a sun bath. Boy did that feel good on the feathers. The one skin brother came to visit a bit and I got a tad loud and kept saying by by. I thought he would leave but guess he didn’t understand what I was trying to tell him but know mom did cause I often do that when I want someone to leave LOL “Don’t cry because its over, smile because it happened.” Left a vote for you ~~Your forever friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

What a wonderful Bio! Your daddy sounds like such a loving and caring Parront!I love also how you got your name!We green cheeks sure are very fast and we do look like green streaks with red tails when we decide to take off!
This morning was a bright sunny morning with the highs for the day were 58 the lows will be 47,right now its 52 and still sunny at 6:00pm.Mom got us all up this morning and fed us our warm bean mix,cleaned our cages and room,made dad his fresh PB&J sandwiches for the week and then she went to print out a coupon for LongHorn Restaurant that skin bro wanted her to get off his email and when she went to go to his email it wouldn't let her on as she didn't know the password.So she went to go back to her own email and it threw her off also as it said her password was wrong so for over an hour dad was trying to get everything back,he finally had to call Comcast and get Mom a new password.Mom finally got the coupon and they left here around 11:45 to go to Nana's and meet Nana and skin bro there.Mom wasn't sure that Nana would be able to get into dad's car as it was taller as Mom has a hard time in it also he(Dad) had to put a shoe box down so her feet could touch the ground and not dangle.He's looking to find a stool for her but can't find a little step stool so far.Nana did get to get in his car and they took off for the restaurant and they ordered renegade steaks with sweet potato baked in butter and cinnamon and sugar and Mom and Nana had a tossed salad to go with it,skin bro had a salad and garlic fries my dad had a burger with shaved steak on top,lettuce tomato and sautéed onions on a huge roll,it was so big he couldn't get his mouth on it he also had plain fries to go with it,plus they serve everything with the honey wheat bread before you get the meal.Then skin bro ordered the Chocolate Stampede Cake for dessert and oh was that so sinful!That is the most wonderful dessert ever and it comes with chocolate cake,with chocolate mousse,whipped cream,two big balls of vanilla ice cream drizzled with chocolate sauce.The four of them shared it and were they so full and in need of a wheel barrow to get them out to the car after that.Skin bro paid for the whole meal for all of them.They went to Stop&Shop after that and Nana got some oranges and bottled water and banana's for our cousins and then they went to Walmart as Mom was looking for a specific item that they didn't have.Skin bro and Mom went to Walmart and Nana and my dad waited in the car for them.Both came out empty handed and they went back over the Bridge to Nana's again.Mom and Dad said goodbye to both Nana and skin bro and Dad took Mom to Roche Bros and they bought eight gallons of milk together.Milk was $1.99 a gallon,but its that price on Sunday's only.Dad got four and Mom got four as there was a limit of only four.Then Mom and dad went home where Mom came in and cleaned our cages for the night and gave us our snacks,she was over an hour late,we get our snacks at 4:00pm an

  Hi Flitzer
Liked your bio!

Mom and Dad's trip to the grocery store yesterday was very productive for yours truly. Not only did the sugar snap peas finally improve, but the blueberries were slightly on sale. Not enough to buy pie quantities, but I did get blueberries with my breakfast and Mom had them on her cereal. Good thing since the bananas were all too ripe.

I didn't get my sunbath today until Mom got back from the gym, because the cool down finally arrived. Of course, that is cooling it down to 73. I know many of my BC buddies would consider that a heat wave. We have officially entered "May Gray" though. The clouds were thick this morning and didn't burn off until just before noon. And then of course I had to be coy and play hard to get for my sunbath. Mom got home from the gym at 12:30, and I didn't make it outside till 1:30. After much dodging around, I suddenly decided it was time and climbed right in. Gotta keep Mom guessing!

  Hi Flitzer
It's a good idea to stay away from the big dogs. We have little dogs here, but mom teaches us to stay away from them, too.
We all got out yesterday, everyone except Falco. She was being a brat and was not willing to get into her travel cage, so mom just put her back in her indoor cage and took Maxine, Willie, and me outside for a while.
She went to dinner and the opera with Jessica, and enjoyed both. By the time they got to town, all the barricades for the pet walk and 5k walk were down. Dinner was at the Renaissance Hotel, which has a wonderful restaurant, and the opera, Daughter of the Regiment, was really funny and the singers were perfect! Great voices, good costumes, and funny dialogue, what could be better entertainment?
Today mom had to turn around 3 times to get to the museum for her tour. It's marathon Sunday and all the roads she usually takes were blocked off. She did make it on time, after driving all over Carnegie Mellon's campus. The kids on the tour were curious cub scouts, and mom went a little overtime with them, but they were fun.
It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood today, sunny and high 70s. Mom is hoping to finish our blogs without too much trouble, so we can go outside for a little today too. Hope your day is filled with springtime, cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

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

  Hi Flitzer-thanks for sharing YOUR history
Hello everybirdie, Sweetie here on this warm, bright Sunday. I want to begin by thanking you all for sharing your past histories, in your birdographies you tell the sad and happy events that have led you to be where you at this moment in time. I ask that every parront take the time to really read each one, for within each is a wealth of information and hope for someone else who may be facing or in the future may face a similar obstacle to Companion Parrot ownership. I hate that term ownership; signifying possession because no one truly "owns' a Parrot. We are not domesticated like a companion cat or dog. It is for these reasons that so many of us end for unwanted, neglected, abused or worse. We hatch from eggs will all the instincts of our wild cousins, except the ability to be free to exercise them.
As Falco's Mom and others noted dealing with hormones has been the most difficult challenge. That factor alone shows that we differ from all other commonly kept "pets". Where dogs or cats can be sterilized thereby removing that obstacle, Parrots, except under very unique circumstances are not. That fluffy bundle of down will one day be a fully mature, hormonal-driven adult with one desire; to reproduce their kind. Frustrated Parrots can become extremely aggressive, biting and lunging at those they once adored. The need to chew can wreck havoc on furniture, wood work and other humanly valued objects.
It is a tragic fact that over 70 % of baby Parrots will live in no less then two homes. Many will live in ten or more and some will be forever bounced from place to place. Many of the largest Parrot rescues in the USA have very large populations of Macaws and larger species Cockatoos. The Iowa Parrot Rescue has no less then 60 % population of these two species. Of these most are adult males five or older. After countless conversations with different rescue owners ( all USA/Canada based and with larger rescue populations) most of these 60% are surrendered due to aggression, screaming or other hormonal behaviors.
After reading every one of your comments, it is clear that many of us on BC have had previous homes. We were either rescues or re-homes due to necessity. Sadly some, Like Sam I Am suffered the most common Parrot/Owner scenario. A once adored baby becomes a problem to be dealt with. Stuck in solitary confinement due to our own natural behaviors we develop unwanted behaviors that cause us to be "given-up."
NOW TODAY'S QUESTION--who do YOU feel is to BLAME for this problem of Parrots being rehomed so often? IS it the breeder? Where do the stores fit into this? Are they responsible for finding suitable homes? Are sellers of babies failing to educate the potential buyer thereby setting up a high potential for failure of new owners keeping their Parrot for it's lifetime? What ideas do you think might help stop this sad situation of buyers of babies giving them up? How can we start to help end this problem?

It's Sawyer.
Well, yesterday mom and dad never made it down to the beach. Instead they worked around the house and watched Izzy. In the afternoon their friend Bob called to say HI. He still has his cold but it's not stopping him. He's going fly fishing. Now I ask you, don't we have enough flies around that we would need to go fishing for them? All he has to do is just leave his back door open.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 78 and a low of 55.
Hope your day was fun.

Thanks for your background story. Silver picked out our dad and mom saw that he and Pearl were bonded so said we have to adopt both birds. We are never apart. Wondered about your name as don't think there's any others on BC with the same.

Grey Bird here! I wanted to fly by and let you all know that I am doing fabulous in my new home. I have a chest full of new feathers, and even more coming in. Mom is hoping that I won't pluck them, so she has been making me new toys everyday for me to play with, so that I don't play with my feathers. We are still working on stepping up, I'm still not so sure of it. I have started to pick up mom's voice! I will say "Go get it!" and "Head Scratching?" in her voice. I like the dog, I try to boss her around, and sometimes she even listens. :P Hugs, Grey Bird

Today was a pretty nice day. This afternoon mom loaded me up in my stroller and put me in the back seat of dads pickup and we went down to the trail. Mom pushed me and I got to see all the people and some dogs on leashes and the water on the river. One place the water runs very fast and makes lots of noise. Coming back there was a train on the other side of the river and mom stopped so I could watch it a bit too. Lots of people saw me in the stroller and stopped to look and talk to me. I just looked at them. I sure was tired when we got back home and I got to ride so bet mom was really tired out! “Don’t cry because its over, smile because it happened.” Left a vote for you ~~Your forever friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Makana gives a hug. Mom and us watched Tron last night. Oh, sorry, not the old Tron, the new one. It's good but we thought we could do some of those things better than a human, but mom just gave us an odd smile. I don't think she believes us. Oh well, we will let her have it her way for now. hehe
We got hummingbirds now and they feed outside our window. They're fun to watch. But we really get to squawk at the deer and that's even more fun. They all walk around outside and we let them know where we are. Of course, other than Sophie, Oatie and me are the loudest. haha We even have seen some of those hummingbird moths or butterflies or whatever they're called. We thought those were only back east until yesterday. Now mom needs to figure how to get some pictures of em.

  Hi Flitzer
You will be happy to hear that my mom's lips are healing very quickly. The repeated applications of Neosporin really seemed to do the trick. You would think it happened a week ago instead of just a couple of days.

However I was stubborn about getting in my carrier today, so Mom was getting pretty annoyed with me. It took almost an hour to get me in there, and she actually tricked me to do it. That is, she picked me up (me thinking I am getting a cuddle) and popped me in there. Of course, once I was inside we were all good to go. We made it out by 10, and it was a good thing. Any later would have definitely been too warm. Cool down coming though, and the next several days are just supposed to be in the 70s which is normal for here this time of year.

Mom and I shared a salad for lunch, and Mom would not let me have the red onions that I wanted out of it. She believes they are bad for parrots. She doesn't remember where she heard that, so any info would be appreciated...I really wanted to eat them.

Sweetie's campaign is off with a bang, and Mom and I have really enjoyed reminiscing about my early days here and sharing them with Sweetie. I hope you are all doing the same thing and, of course, voting for her while you are there....the Hat Contest needs your votes as well.

  Hi Flitzer buddy
Hello everybirdie, Sweetie once more with today's BOTM blog. I want to thank everyone who stopped by, especially those who have shared their past with us.I hope every parront will take the time to read these interesting and heart-moving accounts of how their fid(s) joined their lives. We Parrots are all so unique and individual both in our personalities and in our relationships to our human caregivers. What I hope to do this month, as the days pass is to begin an active, open discussion about s wonderful, fascinating and sometimes difficult Parrots.
Whatever means we took to join our now forever homes, as varied and interesting as they all are, the one factor that remains common is, "none of us were born to live within the human environment." Sharing our days with humans was not a consideration when we were first created, and often times this factor brings with it untold challenges, conflicts and joys for both the owner and their wonderful, independent and awesome companion Parrot. My hope is that dialogue we can share these moments, thereby helping one another grow, over-come and expand in our relationships with one another.
We will look at, and talk about various Parrots and their loving Parronts, how they came together and how they have over-come problems; road-bumps along the way to developing that mutual trusting relationship. Even those who arrived into their families as weanling babies had obstacles that had to be faced and worked through. Since no parront has arrived yet at that place where never a new challenge or problem shall come along, we can help one another to forge through these birdie-barriers with renewed confidence.
My Momma Deb has over forty years of bird-related involvement, yet daily things come up that are a "first" for her. As a writer Advocate for Flockcall.com she is able to share her day to day observations with others in the hopes that someone will gain a tiny morsel of wisdom that will help them with their own Companion Parrots. I have been a challenge to her. Although only two years old there was and still is a communication problem; a language barrier that has slowed my transition to my new home. The problem is not my failure to learn English, but her lack of knowledge of another language which I grew-up with. Momma Deb has had to re-think her approach to these several times, and after many hit-miss attempts has worked out a solution to our understanding. It is this sort of thing that I want to have us share with one another. What works for you might just work for someone else.
Please, feel free to continue to write about how you came to be in your current Companion Parrot home. TODAY'S QUESTION: is simple but important: WHAT WAS THE MOST DIFFICULT CHALLENGE YOU, the PARRONT, had to overcome with YOUR new fid? and HOW did you OVERCOME IT?

Come visit me, SKY, Little Angel, jesse & SWEETIE, RUNNING FOR BOTM IN MAY.

  Hi Flitzer
It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood today, it's warm and sunny already. When mom walked the dogs this morning it looked and sounded like National Mow the Lawn day or something! Lots of folks out working. Jeff, our neighbor, brought some dahlias that he potted and some gooseberries to plant. Mom will plant them as soon as we finish our blogs.
This is marathon weekend in Pittsburgh, and tonight is opera night. Mom is hoping that by the time they go downtown, the marathon walkers will be done. Today is pet walk and 5k walk, and tomorrow is the 26 mile run. There are streets blocked off already for today, and there will be more tomorrow, all the ones mom uses to get to work. She forgot it was marathon weekend and signed up for a tour tomorrow, what a dummy.
Tonight is dinner and the opera. Mom and her niece Jessica will eat at a restaurant downtown, then go to see Daughter of the Regiment. Mom can't wait, but it won't be as good as the last time it played here. Then Joan Sutherland played the lead role, and she was the best soprano of her time.
I hope you are having a bright spring day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

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

  Hi Flitzer
It's Sawyer.
Izzy is all moved into his now condo. It's three times bigger than the small travel cage he was in for a week. Dad will post another picture on Popeye's page later. Also the vet called to let mom and dad know about the results of Issy's blood tests. They all came back perfect. Izzy is in perfect health.
Today will be clear, with a high of 87 and a low of 57. Mom and dad may drive down to Long Beach to spend the day at the beach.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Sawyer.

Come visit me, ALEX, POPEYE, SAWYER, BLUE & JEWEL, GINGER & CALICO.

  Hi, Flitzer
Good decision to stay home and redecorate your birdhouse instead of getting near those huge furballs. Some are just too eggcitable for a fid's peace of mind.

Hopefully our weather will not go higher than 70s today as forecast. Two days of heat is plenty we think.

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.
