Cori has just had her bath and had her beak buffed by Boo Boo. Boo Boo feels one must always look their best when speaking to the public. Cori clears her throat and continues her speech about bird songs.
male birds sing in the morning to appear more macho and by delivering a lusty dawn chorus he sends out the message he is full of energy and raring to go. blackbirds and song thrushes can do this more than 1-1/2 hours before chaffinches and blue tits. scientists have discovered that the bigger the birds eyes the sooner in the morning it strikes up its song. their singing not only determines their territory but attracts mates and also predators like owls. with their hearing out of action while they warble they must be able to rely on heir eyes to see attacks coming. those birds with smaller eyes need extra sunlight to be sure of their safety. birds pass on songs from generation to generation. fathers pass on their repertoire of chirps and tweets to their sons and mothers give theirs to their daughters. female songbirds learn their songs at a much faster rate than the males do (who didn't know that one). a female cardinal learned her selection of music in one third the time it took her male sibling to learn the exact songs. females are attracted to the male with the largest and loudest songs so those males really have to work it.male birds that imitate other songbirds songs like the mockingbirds, the mynah and the australian
lyrebird are very attractive to the female because they feel if the male knows so much about the other birds songs it must also know where they keep their food
tomorrow we will continue along this same vein of thought

  Hey Joey
Let's find the nets before we head out ! I encountered a few pesky squawk-a-tiels on my way down ! We can have a picnic and go hunting ! Maybe a campfire tonight - roast some marshmallows ?

  Hi Joey
Boo Boo rubs beak gloss on Coris beak, before her speech, to make it glisten.

the goose barnacle gets it name from the long rubbery stalk that attaches this crustacean to ships, whales or pilings. to the ancients, this resemblance to the neck of a goose was more than a mere coincidence, goose barnacles were actually thought to be the embryos of barnacle geese, a small species that winters in europa. people thought they were making an educated guess since no one had ever seen a barnacle goose nest since there breeding grounds are in the far arctic and the birds black and white plumage was thought to match the light and dark plates of the barnacles
Pelicans were mistakenly believed to feed their young on their own blood and were medieval symbols of sacrifice .an emblem adopted by the christian churches in the dark ages.

Boo Boo breathes a sigh of relief that Cori got through the speech without any mishaps.


love Cori and Boo Boo (campaign manager)

  Hi Joey
I AM RUNNING FOR BOTM and would appreciate any votes you can give me
Boo Boo uses a lint brush on Cori to brush off all the pieces of shredded paper stuck in Coris feathers before Cori hits the stage and begins her speech for the day.

all creatures gather into groups at some point in their lives making it harder for packs of prey to attack them, collective wisdom to make better decisions, or just a social time for mating. these groups have been given non-scientific names based on mans understanding or beliefs at the time they were named. many bits of folklore were once taken as fact and have since been proven to be false.ideas like sparrows spontaneously generated from horsehair and mud or that birds hibernate en masse at the bottom of oceans and lakes. don't forget that the general belief was that the earth was flat and what other explanation could explain where large groups of migrating birds were flying off over the oceans yet always returned each spring.
even before written language birds have inspired mans folklore, superstition and even religion.they are representatives of hope and despair, good luck and bad.


love Cori and Boo Boo(campaign manager

ps. we forgot to add from yesterday the sayings FREE AS A BIRD: not true as birds are prisoners of the land they fly over and the air they fly through .rules imposed by nature
BIRD BRAIN: to explain someone who is not too bright. not true as we all know how very intelligent birds are (thanks Spot for reminding us)

fix all kinds of snacks and head into the tv room . . . they keep hearing lots of birds chattering outside and know that spring must be coming eventually :)

They grab some crayons and paper to start making a list of all the things they want to do -

tubing, swimming, picnicking, biking, flying kites . . .

  Cookie has arrived
in Texas to party with Joey and Manu! Man o man that BC credit card comes in handy doesn't it, Cookie? That's the greatest thing since French fries!!
Are you bringing anyone with you? Maybe we could ask Mango to fly over. He lives in Florida and is basking in the sun down there. Maybe he could be here for the super bowl! Left you another vote, Cookie! Glad you are here!
