After losing Bindi, I still had a place in my heart for another little bird that I needed to fill. I started doing research on Parrotlets and found my baby Parrotlet, which happens to be an Albino Parrotlet, at Almost Angels Aviary. I picked up my baby on July 5th, 2013. I'm not sure if it's a she or a he, but I'm assuming it's a girl since all my other birds were girls. I named her Poco. The Parrotlet originates from the same place as the White Bellied Caique which is in the northern part of South America. The language there is Spanish, therefore I named her "Poco" which means little..

  Hi Poco and Pico
Well, since it is July 1st tomorrow, I thought we would start off the month with a BIG Canada Day Celebration to bring in the fact that hopefully (Mom is smiling) I will be dragged off growling, by some castle guards at midnight according to some of you here, and I will wake up in a strange place in the morning. Wake up – are they going to drug me so I will fall back asleep? Nobirdy seems to really know what happens. Or nobirdy is telling. I was told the entire flock is to come with me. They’d better!
I want to thank EVERY BIRDY who has voted for me this month, even if you did not come by every day. I want to thank TiPaul, my campaign manager, who helped me with research, and blogging, and making sure I did not forget one single birdie who left me a blog, or any birdie who is on the list of those who want to get in the 10K club. I also want to thank him for handing me his crown, the one he wore when he was BOTM so long ago. It means a lot to me to wear it.
Okay… here is the list of activities that I have asked the City of montreal to bring to the Castle for us, so we can partake in the Canada Day festivities.

  Hi Pico and Poco
The Château Ramezay is a museum and historic building on Notre-Dame Street in Old Montreal, opposite Montreal City Hall. Built in 1705 as the residence of then-governor of Montreal, Claude de Ramezay, the Château was the first building proclaimed as a historical monument in Quebec and is the province’s oldest private history museum. It was designated a National Historic Sites of Canada in 1949. Over the years, the Château changed owners and functions several times, with Ramezay's descendants selling the manor to the fur-trading Compagnie des Indes. From 1775, it became the Canadian headquarters for the Continental Army when it seized Montreal. Benjamin Franklin stayed there overnight in 1776, while trying to raise troops to fight for the Americans in the American Revolutionary War. After the conquest until 1849 the house was again used as a governor's residence, this time by the British governors. For official purposes it was known as Government House and was the governor's official Montreal residence which complemented his other residence in Quebec City (the Chateau St. Louis), and a country retreat in Sorel. In 1878, the building opened its doors to host Université de Montréal's first Faculty of Medicine. The building was bought by the Numismatic and Antiquarian Society of Montreal and converted into an historical museum and portrait gallery in 1894. Sir Andrew Taylor designed alterations to the Chateau in 1895. Today, the museum's collection is composed mainly of gifts from private Montrealers and is estimated at 30,000 objects, including manuscripts, printed works, numismatic items, ethnological items, works of art, paintings, prints and furniture. From 1997 to 2002, the Château Ramezay underwent indoor and outdoor restorations, including the creation of the Governor’s Garden, inaugurated in 2000. In 2003, the Château Ramezay Museum earned the National Award of Excellence from the Landscape Architects of Canada. It has greeted more than a million visitors.

First known as the Molson Centre when construction was completed in 1996 the arena was renamed the Centre Bell in February of 2002. This new arena replaced the aging Montreal Forum that was built in 1924 and was considered the most storied building in hockey history. Located in downtown Montreal and with a capacity of 21,273 seats the Centre Bell is the largest arena for hockey in North America and one of the most technologically advanced and versatile venues in the world. It’s home to legendary Montreal Canadiens Hockey Club and the headquarters for evenko. Every year, the home of the Montreal Canadiens attracts more than 1 million spectators to their hockey games, while 650,000 people walk through the doors to watch over 120 shows, for a total of 1.5 million spectators. The Centre Bell incorporates cutting-edge technology to ensure the perfect ambience when it comes to sound, comfort, catering and otherwise for any event, whatever its magnitude. Whether it's attending a Canadiens' game, a concert with a world famous artist or a family show, the Centre Bell is clearly at the top of anyone's venue list. Furthermore, the Centre Bell is the perfect place for corporate gatherings and receptions of any kind.

  Hi Poco and Pico
The Montreal Insectarium is a museum located in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, featuring a large quantity of insects from all around the world. It is the largest insect museum in North America and among the largest insectariums worldwide.[1] It was founded by Georges Brossard and opened on February 7, 1990. Its average attendance is 400,000 visitors per year. It displays both live and dead insect collections, from butterflies to bees and ants. It is one of the city's most popular tourist attractions, along with the Montreal Botanical Garden, Montreal Planetarium and the Montreal Biodome. Seen from the sky, the Montréal Insectarium resembles a stylized insect. This can also be seen from the observatory of Montréal's Olympic Stadium. Be sure to check out the pictures I have put on my page. There are lots this time.

Pointe-à-Callière, a recognized national historical and archaeological site, leads visitors through centuries of history, from the times when Natives camped here to the present day. The Museum opened in 1992, the result of over 10 years of digs. It showcases major archaeological discoveries made on this site starting in the 1980s. Set on a site bearing evidence of over 1,000 years of human activities and on the very birthplace of Montréal, Pointe-à-Callière houses and protects remarkable archaeological remains, displayed in situ with absolute respect for their integrity. On May 17, 1642, on a point of land at the confluence of the St. Lawrence and another, smaller river, Father Vimont held a mass celebrating the founding of Montréal, attended by Sieur de Maisonneuve, Jeanne Mance and their companions. On May 17, 1992, on the very same site, Pointe-à-Callière, the Montréal Museum of Archaeology and History, opened its doors. Until the Museum opened, only historians knew about the "Pointe à Callière," so named because it was here that Chevalier Louis Hector de Callière, third governor of Montréal, had a home built in 1688. Today, the point has actually become part of the shoreline of the Island of Montréal, but its name lives on and is better known than ever, thanks to the Museum.The Museum was founded as part of celebrations to mark Montréal’s 350th birthday, and owes its existence largely to the significant archaeological discoveries made on the site during the 1980s. In fact, the Museum and its site are inextricably linked. Rising above evidence of more than 1,000 years of human activity, it houses remarkable architectural remains, displayed in situ with absolute respect for their integrity. Pointe-à-Callière is the only sizeable archaeology museum in Canada. The hundreds of artifacts it houses are grouped into six main sections: the Éperon, a modern building that has won many architectural awards; the archaeological crypt on the lower level; the renovated Ancienne-Douane building (Montréal’s first Custom House), the Youville Pumping Station, the Archaeological Field School and the Mariners' House. The museum of a site, a history and a city, Pointe-à-Callière delves into the past to foster a debate on urban issues both local and global, and to encourage visitors to reflect on the future.Pointe-à-Callière: recognized as a historical and archaeological site of national importance ...by Canada On May 17, 1998, to mark the 6th anniversary of Pointe-à-Callière, the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada unveiled a plaque commemorating "the site which gave birth to Montréal.” This tribute to the national historic importance of the Pointe à Callière site also saluted the restoration and development work done by the Museum.

For this “little island” of land holds symbols that tell of the growth and development of a city that for many years was Canada’s metropolis. ...and by Quebec The anniversary of the Museum and of the founding of Montréal, on May 17, 1999, was also an opportunity for the Quebec Department of Culture et des Communications (MCCQ) to officially classify the Pointe à Callière site as an important historic and archaeological site for all of Quebec. These two tributes come as formal recognition of the heritage significance of these sites and of the Museum itself.
The Where Montréal Was Born permanent exhibition takes visitors to the heart of an authentic archaeological site: Montréal’s birthplace. The unusual underground route covering six centuries of history, from the times when Natives camped here to the present day, is an emotion-packed look at the very essence of a city born over 360 years ago. Step back in time, as you follow a trail marked with archaeological remains and artifacts revealing the different incarnations of this site over the centuries. See Montréal’s first Catholic cemetery (1643-1654), brought to light during extensive archaeological digs in 1989. It is the oldest man-made structure directly associated with the city’s founding. Your tour starts in the remains of the Royal Insurance Building (1861-1951), which housed Montréal’s Customs office from 1871 to 1917. Architect Dan Hanganu drew his inspiration for the Museum’s triangular footprint from that building. Discover the legendary Royal Insurance building, explore its fascinating history and have fun with an interactive module set amidst the remains. Throughout these remains, the visitor learns about the history of this site from the Amerindian period to the 20th century and discovers the first catholic cemetery (1643). Families will also find spaces reserved especially for them where they can learn about the ways of life of the St. Lawrence Iroquoians and the various roles of women, men, and children, as well as on tool-making, games, and the recipe for sagamite. Along the way, you’ll cross through an imposing vaulted stone tunnel, where the Little Saint-Pierre River once flowed, and see how it was converted into a collector sewer from 1832-1838. In the archaeological crypt, don’t miss the huge interactive fresco that portrays the expansion of Montréal’s harbour in the 1840s. Nearby, in addition to five superb models showing how the city’s core evolved over the centuries, you’ll find the Market Day projection. Relive a market day in 1750, with virtual characters in scenes recalling daily life as it once played out here in the town’s main public square.

Pointe-à-Callière is seeking curious and courageous young people who are ready to embark on an adventure! The Pirates or Privateers? exhibition gives young visitors and families a golden opportunity to discover and measure themselves up to the rough and ready sailors who scoured the St. Lawrence River in the days of New France. Presented in an immersive environment, this discovery-exhibition takes place in a setting evoking a privateer ship—The Iberville—on which young people, playing their parts in a tale of adventure, can test their physical and intellectual skills.
In line with its series of exhibitions on symbolic Montréal places, Pointe-à-Callière is presenting Lives and Times of the Plateau, an exhibition saluting the intertwined everyday lives and multitude of invented lives that have given the Plateau Mont-Royal neighbourhood its distinctive character and tremendous creativity.
A crucible of artistic brilliance, intellectual vitality, political upheaval and entrepreneurial daring, the Plateau perfectly symbolizes Montréal’s diverse and vibrant culture.
Today considered one of the most “creative” neighbourhoods in North America, and hailed by international magazines as one of the best places to live, the Plateau attracts hip young professionals, shoppers and people watchers from the suburbs as well as tourists. But look a little deeper and you can still see traces of the days when it was home to artisans, shopkeepers and labourers. This is where Francophone city-dwellers invented a life for themselves, in the midst of the waves of immigration that fundamentally altered Quebec’s cultural reality. Indeed, it is not just a single culture, but a whole wealth of cultures, that have shaped the Plateau Mont-Royal from the very beginning. In less than 200 years, thanks to the inventiveness of the Plateau’s residents, it was first transformed from its rural origins into a working-class area and then metamorphosed into an electrifying neighbourhood. This rapid pace of urban evolution made Plateau Mont-Royal one of the sources of the major transformations that have marked the city’s history and its imagination, a true cradle of Quebec culture and the meeting place of people with colourful pasts – and futures.

  Hi Poco & Pico
TiPaul reminds everybirdy to take a look at the artwork on Pepper’s page. There is some from different exhibitions and special shows that have might only have been temporary.
The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts has one of the highest attendance rates among Canadian museums. Every year, over 1 million people visit its unique encyclopedic and its original temporary exhibitions, which combine artistic disciplines (fine arts, music, film, fashion, design) and feature innovative exhibition designs. It conceives, produces and circulates many of its exhibitions across Europe and North America.
Over 200,000 families and schoolchildren take part in its educational, cultural and community-oriented programmes each year. The fall of 2011 saw the opening of a fourth pavilion at the Museum – the Claire and Marc Bourgie Pavilion of Quebec and Canadian Art – and a 444-seat concert venue – Bourgie Hall – housing an outstanding collection of Tiffany stained glass windows. This expansion also brought about the reinstallation of the Museum’s rich holdings in its other three pavilions, which house the world cultures, international art, Medieval to contemporary European art, and decorative art and design collections. Music is now an integral part of the Museum, providing another perspective on the visual arts, through musical audioguides and other innovative activities.
The Studios Art & Education Michel de la Chenelière, which were inaugurated in 2012, have almost doubled the Museum’s facilities for schools, families and community groups. A fifth pavilion devoted to international art and education will open its doors in 2017 for Montreal’s 375th anniversary.

  Hi Poco & Pico - Thanks for your support!
Mount Royal (French: mont Royal, is a hill in the city of Montreal, immediately west of downtown Montreal, Quebec, Canada, the city to which it gave its name. The hill is part of the Monteregian Hills situated between the Laurentians and the Appalachians. The hill consists of three peaks: Colline de la Croix, Colline d'Outremont, and Westmount Summit. It is often called a mountain, as there are no actual mountains in the Montéregie region.Some tourist guidebooks state that Mount Royal is an extinct volcano. The mountain is not a traditional volcano as such. However, it is the deep extension of a vastly eroded ancient volcanic complex, which was probably active about 125 million years ago. The mineral montroyalite, discovered in Montréal, is named after the mountain that provided the definition sample.The first European to scale the mountain was Jacques Cartier, guided there in 1535 by the people of the village of Hochelega. He named it in honour of his patron, King François I of France. He wrote in his journal: ("And among these fields is situated and seated the said town of Hochelaga, near to and adjoining a mountain ... We named this mountain, Mount Royal.")The first Mount Royal Cross was placed there in 1643 by Paul Chomedey de Maisonneuve, the founder of the city, in fulfillment of a vow he made to the Virgin Mary when praying to her to stop a disastrous flood. Today, the mountain is crowned by a 31.4 m (103 ft)-high illuminated cross, installed in 1924 by the Société Saint-Jean-Baptiste and now owned by the city. It was converted to fibre-optic light in 1992, and then to LEDs in 2009. The cross is usually lit in white, but can now be changed to any colour, including the purple traditionally used upon the death of a Pope. Beside the cross, a plaque marks the placement of a time capsule in 1992, during Montréal's 350th birthday celebration. It contains messages and drawings from 12,000 children, depicting their visions for the city in the year 2142, when the capsule is scheduled to be opened.

The mountain is the site of Mount Royal Park , one of Montreal's largest greenspaces. The park was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, who also co-designed New York's Central Park, and inaugurated in 1876, although not completed to his design. The park contains two belvederes, the more prominent of which is the Kondiaronk Belvedere, a semicircular plaza with a chalet, overlooking downtown Montreal. Built in 1906, it is named for the Petun chief Kondiaronk, whose influence led to a major peace accord between the French, Iroquois and other Indian tribes in 1701. Other features of the park are Beaver Lake, a small man-made lake; a short ski slope; cross-country skiing trails; a sculpture garden; and Smith House, an interpretive centre. At the foot of the hill, overlooking Park Avenue, the park features George-Étienne Cartier Monument, home to the Tam Tams, and a gazebo which has been recently named in honour of Mordecai Richler. The lush forest was badly damaged both by mayor Drapeau’s morality cuts of the mid-1950s and by the Ice Storm of 1998, but has since largely recovered. The forest is a green jewel rising above downtown Montreal, and is known for its beautiful autumn foliage as well as extensive hiking and cross-country ski trails. Biking is restricted to the main gravel roads. The park, cemeteries, and several adjacent parks and institutions have been combined in the Mount Royal The park, cemeteries, and several adjacent parks and institutions have been combined in the Mount Royal Natural and Historical District by the government of Québec, in order to legally protect the rich cultural and natural heritage of this region. It is the only place in Québec to have the combined status of a Natural and Historical District. There is much more I could tell you about the park, the peak of the mountain, the winter activities, but I don’t want to bore you.

  Hi Poco
Is that your new toy? It sure looks like fun!
Mom had a meeting at the museum this morning, and it's primary election time in PA, so on the way home she voted. Since she had to be at the museum early, the dogs didn't get walked until she got home, so they were really happy to get out. Today was the docent luncheon day, where all the docents bring a dish and it's potluck, but mom didn't stay. There was an all staff meeting before the luncheon could begin and her days of attending more than one meeting are over with forever. Anyway now she's finally doing our blogs, then hopefully, she will get to a local nursery to finish with the plants for outside. It's supposed to rain again today, so that might not get done. Mom is getting ready to change days at the center next week. Instead of Monday and Wednesday, she will go Monday and Friday, since that is a day they are short handed. It will be quite a change in routine for mom.
Our deepest sympathy goes to Captain Darling's family and flock, he was a good friend.
I hope you are having warmer weather than we are, and getting some sunshine and lots of love. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Poco...Marley here
We were surprised you were not our BOTD here, with all the attention you got on your 1st hatchday. I saw that new toy of yours because I was in the computer room when TiPaul left you a vote and your wishes. It sure has lots of colors in it. I am not one to chew wood but Floop would chew a toy like that in 5 minutes. Thanks for coming by to see me. I don't get many visitors these days.

  Hi Poco
I'm so happy that you had a wonderful special hatchday. Mom & I go on FB just to see pics as we aren't a big FB fan. We are mostly on BC ... until they close us out. Then we will be on the new BC.
Today I was sneezing, shaking my head and scratching my head a lot. Mom gave me a bath and it felt better. It was a bad allergy day. But, it was nice outside. I got to feel the breeze and see the sun for a little while. I’m still taking the bene-bac gel meds with no problems at all. I act like it’s a treat!
Hugs

I was hoping you would be BOTD, but maybe it hasn't been a year yet. Anyway Sweetie makes a really pretty queen. At least you got a greyt toy, and I am glad you enjoyed the almonds.

  Hi Poco and flockily
thank you for visiting my page and congratulating me on BOTD. What a surprise it was this morning to see me in the spotlight. I am doing well and learning to get around, and climb all by myself. It's not hard for us birds to adjust to changes, not like our humans, we adapt.
I never got to meet Casper, but SKY said he really loved you and thought the world of you Oz. You are very pretty.
Come join me in the castle today for the party with Queen Chipper.

  Hi Poco,

How are you, cutie? My name is Parker and I'm an English Keet. Mommy thinks I'm so smart cause I know about "45" words and phrases. Would you like to be Friends with me? Stop around and see me anytime. I'm that Big Pink Bird, Oz's(she might be bigger than us but she's the Sweetest LOL) Brother. Cheyenne is also my Sister and my Brother is Apache. A Friend of my Mommy's had a Pacific Blue Parrotlet and Perry was fearless. He thought he was a Macaw in a little Bird's Body LOL. I'll bet you boss your Sister around, don't you? Although, we hear Caique's can be pretty tough. Mom once saw a Caique attack a young Rose Breasted Cockatoo for no reason. She really was thinking of getting one until she saw that. But they are beautiful Birds. Okay, here's a vote for you. Stop around sometime, we love getting company. Bye for now.

Winghugs,
Parker

WE ARE TRYING TO BLOG AS MANY AS WE POSSIBLY CAN BUT LAST NIGHT WHEN EVER WE WENT TO BIRDIES PAGES THERE WAS NO VOTE BUTTON. TODAY WHILE BLOGGING AGAIN WE NOTICED THAT A LOT OF OUR BLOGS WERE NEVER EVEN POSTED ON THE PAGES FROM YESTERDAY. ALL THAT WORK AND NOTHING TO SHOW FOR IT.

THEN TODAY WHEN I GAVE CORI HER BATH BEFORE HER CAMPAIGN SPEECH SHE POOPED IN THE BATH WATER AND I HAD TO WASH HER ALL OVER AGAIN.
