I Love Millet, but not sure of those things called veggies, or fruit...

Being stuck in his cage. He think's my shoulder is his perch.

She does let me ride around the house, on her shoulder, and I like that very much.

  Hi Cinn-A-Bun
hello everybirdie. Zeena here on my final day of July. Today I want to take the time to thank you all for all the wonderful comments, and helpful topic input. When any bird runs for BOTM, it is a family affair. No one can make it to the BC Castle with out the help and votes of their many friends. I have met many awesome birds this month, and have learned a great deal about the various species we visited.
With a flock legacy of BOTMs to follow after, it was a challenge to equal their efforts and enthusiasm. Sky, Little Angel (Adler) and my frother Casey set the measure by which I hoped to inform and share with you. I had the most wonderful month. Thank you one and all.
This being my final BOTM Post I decided to stop by and visit with a beautiful and unusual species that is a delight to watch.

The Black Palm Cockatoo is considered to be the most beautiful of the Cockatoos.

However, the Palm Cockatoo is endangered in the wild and is mostly kept for breeding purposes. While the Palm Cockatoo is known for being loving and affectionate, just like any Cockatoo, they are also very needy. If you own a Cockatoo, then you know why they are called the "love sponges" of the parrots. And you also know that they are the most needy of all the pet birds and often love their owners too much.

Cockatoos require a lot of time and attention--much more than any other pet bird. If you are able to spend at least two full hours a day with your bird (out of his cage), not leave the house for 6 or more hours everyday, cook for your bird and provide him with a variety of healthy foods, handle the loud screaming, afford the large cage and huge amount of toys, and deal with the adjustment stage that can include aggression, then rescuing a Cockatoo might be a great idea. Make sure you research as much as possible because you don't want to add to the already out-of-hand rescue problem.

Because so many Cockatoos are left to rescues, I highly encourage you to visit your local parrot rescue, see what I'm talking about, and consider rescuing one of these poor magestic creatures instead of buying one in a store. If you can handle all this, then this really might be the right bird for you.

But keep in mind that Black Palm Cockatoos in particular are very hard to find. They can cost upwards of $16,000 because of their rarity and endangered status. So, don't get your hopes up if you have your mind set on this species.

with love and scritches Zeena 255116

  Hi Cinny
It's Popeye.
You should have seen dad, trying to clean the carpets. Yesterday he dropped mom off at the police station and went to the Magnolia Bird Farm for our food. Ok, that was fine but it's what happened when he got home that's really a hoot!
Dad decided that he had enough time to work on the carpet cleaning so he got the Rug Doctor machine out of the garage and took out a bottle of cleaning solution. Now for the fun part. He brought in a big bucket and started filling it at the kitchen sink. When it was full dad lifted it out of the sink but not quite high enough. He ended up dumping three gallons of hot water all over the kitchen floor. That's right. The floor he just finished mopping for the second time. He ran out to the garage and brought in his big shop vacuum. It sucked up the water in no time but now the floor looks real bad, AGAIN. Dad refilled the bucket and very carefully lifted it out of the sink and filled the cleaning machine. Because the carpet hadn't been cleaned for quite awhile dad had to use the hand tool to scrub the real dirty spots. Now, the handle on the tool is about six inches long. Just big enough for his hand. So dad had to get down on his hands and knees to scrub the spots. Now keep in mind, yesterday was a little warm. 92 degrees. And it was humid. Put that together with all the hot water and what do you have? A really sweaty dad. And most of it ended up on his glasses so he couldn't see so good. Never the less, he did scrub the carpet pretty good.
After scrubbing the dirty spots, dad put the hand tool away and used the machine for the rest. Well, almost. He ran out of cleaning solution. He looked through the garage but didn't have any more Rug Doctor cleaning solution. He found some other brand and read that it said for all cleaning machines. That wasn't exactly true. You see, the Rug Doctor solution has an anti-foaming agent in it and the stuff that dad found didn't. That's right, he ended up with a hallway full of foam. Dad had to stop using it and clean up all the foam in the hallway and all over the inside of the cleaning machine. It looked like someone had a whipped cream party in the house. By the time dad got everything all cleaned up it was time to pick up mom. Dad's thinking about calling someone to clean the carpets.
Today's the day dad gets fitted for his police uniform so he'll drop mom off at the police station and he and his partner will head to the uniform store.
Today will be clear and hot, with a high of 94 and a low of 67.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Popeye.

  Hi Cinn-a-bun
You have the right attitude! That's the way to feel about the toys, you know.
We are missing summer! It's another cool day here too, but it's supposed to hit 80, so we'll see what happens. There was a strange glow in the sky this morning, and mom actually put on sunglasses. She told us not to stare at it, in case it gets scared and goes away. Even if it's gorgeous today, it will not be a pool day for mom because of the appointment with the eye surgeon. We'll let you know what's going on tomorrow.
Meanwhile, I hope you have a good day today and get some sunshine and blue skies, along with all the cuddles you have come to expect. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Cinn-A-Bun
Well, I think that bells are the best! I have a long chain hanging on the side of my condo (cage) and when I destroy a toy, the bell is added to that chain. I now have the chain covered with bells and when I ring it ... you can hear it a long ways!!! I also have two stainless steel bells that I can't take the dinger out!!!
We had another cold, dark and rainy day. I was busy destroying two more toys so, I didn't care. I was told I made a big mess and I will be cleaned tomorrow! Birdsonally, I think it looks nice!

  Hi Cinn a bun
Mom was busy again this morning and had to go over to skin sis too after she got her cleaning done. When mom got back she was getting things together towards supper since it had to be early eating so mom and I could visit that new vet. I went in my wingabago cause it was a bit chilly out and I like I can see out every where in it to. The vet was nice but again mom just talked to him and I didn’t need to have any grooming done so that made it lots better too for me. He did all the right things though and mom said when we need one this will be the one we will visit for sure. “I have learned its not what I have in life but who I have in my life that counts.“ Leaving a vote for you …your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Cinny buddy
July 30th BOTM POST
Hello to all my BC friends. Zeena here with today's BOTM Post. Today we will take a look at one of natures most beautiful birds, also my Momma Deb's" dream-bird", the Hyacinth Macaw.
The largest species of macaw, Hyacinth grows to be up to 40 inches (1 m) long. The Hyacinth Macaw survives today in three known distinct population in southern Brazil, eastern Bolivia and northeastern Paraguay. In 1990, the wild population was estimated to be 2,500 birds. The world’s captive population is probably much larger, numbering in the thousands. Today, the wild population is less then 600 individuals. They are critically endangered in their native habitat.
Of the 145 species of parrot in Central and South America, 45 are in danger of extinction. All 18 species of macaws are threatened. The primary causes are habitat loss and heavy exploitation for the pet trade. The Hyacinth Macaw is especially vulnerable to capture and habitat destruction because it is noisy, intrinsically fearless, predictable, and dependent on palm trees. Hyacinth Macaws do not breed every year even under the best circumstances, so the predation on chicks is particularly bad for the species’ survival. Since captured young survive so poorly (up to 99 percent die between capture and final sale), adults are sometimes trapped through liming of perches or use of baited clap-nets. Still, for every macaw that arrives safely abroad, it is likely that five died on the way.
The United States is the largest market for the exotic pet trade. In the last decade, 8.5 million birds, at least 85 percent of birds captured in the wild, were imported or smuggled into the United States. Even when the export of birds is controlled, the domestic bird trade often is not regulated. Another threat to the Hyacinth Macaw is the increased commercial sale of feather art by the Kayapo Indians of Gorotire in southern Brazil. The feathers from up to 10 Hyacinth Macaws are needed to make one headdress. In addition, ranchers kill Macaws because they believe that Hyacinths damage palm trees, which ranchers use for fenceposts, and scare cattle with their noisy behavior. In some places, local people still hunt Macaws for meat. Add to this clear-cutting of Rainforest and you can see the danger the Hyacinth population has to becoming extinct within the next decade.
Compound all the above and it is easy to calculate that their best chance of survival as a species is through captive breeding. Selling in Canada at upwards to $40,000US each these beauties of the Rainforest will remain one the worlds most desired Macaw species.
One more Question for Thought.
It is often people’s love of animals that causes them to desire exotic animal pets. What can be done to educate pet owners about the impacts of wild-caught birds and other animals?

  Hi Cinn A Bun
You got a good point there if your mom didnt want you to ring your bell like that why did she give it to you.
I love to fight my bell and swing from it so it rings like crazy.
Do you ever sit under your bell and wear it like a hat?I know some cockatiels like to do that.
Happy humpday.Enjoy the afternoon.

  Hi Cinn-a-bun
I hope those storms are gone!
The guy collecting parking fees at the museum said to mom we are lucky this year. We are getting 2 Septembers! It's been another cool, cloudy day here. There were thunderstorms predicted, but so far we haven't seen any.
Mom's tour this morning was a group of day care kids ranging from about 7 to 12 years. They wanted animals, so mom started in Bird Hall, of course. She also did a ton of mammals on the second floor, both North American and African. Then she took the kids out on the balcony to see the giant pterosaur, Quetzlcoatlus, with its 40 foot wing span. There was a reason, though. When that guy stood on the ground he was as tall as a giraffe! They had just seen the giraffe, so mom wanted to show off the pterosaur. It was a good move, because the museum had moved the herps to that balcony! So while they were out there, mom did frogs, salamanders, and snakes, too.
We are hoping for better weather tomorrow, even though mom won't have a chance at going to the pool. Her eye surgeon's appointment is in the afternoon.
I hope you are seeing warm weather, sunshine, and lots of cuddles, just for you! Hugs, Falco

  Hi Cinny
Bells are my absolute favorite. Mom keeps the bell when I destroy, I mean wear out, a toy, and then she will attach it to any toy that doesn't have one.

Today is hot again, although maybe not as bad as Monday. They are calling for a high of low 90s. I got outside for my sunbath at 9:15 (yes, I was playing hard to get again), but it was OK. Mom had to sit in the shade, but then that is probably just as well. The sun is not nearly as good for humans as it is for us birdies. When we came in Mom took me into the kitchen for some blueberry pie. She likes the berries and I like the crust, so we share.

Being Wednesday, Mom will leave me for the gym from 4-6, but since she feels so guilty when she gets home I don't mind. I get her right up to bedtime at 8:30. Besides the zumba teacher on Wednesday is really energetic, plus she has no breaks between songs. Mom's trainer takes it easy on her on Wednesdays, but Mom still comes home whacked out. Luckily she is still strong enough to support me on her shoulder, but then I only weigh 70 gms.

  Morning Cinny-B from Jenny & flock
Dad worked pretty hard yesterday getting ready for the lawn man, and he is in the process of making a whole new wooden play top for Limon's new cage! It will be complete with many perches, swings, food stations, and hanging toys, much like Christy's was! It is visiting VA Nurse day for dad, but no big deal we always hope! I am wishing you all a very happy hump day, and some of our fantastic weather! Have a great day dear BC friends, and give my love to all in your hump day home, see ya all tomorrow...

Love from Jenny & my family

Update: Dad canceled the VA Nurse visit, but he is really just fine...

  Hi Cinny
It's Popeye.
Yup. A California downpour usually only amounts to a few drops.
Dad finally got the front yard mowed. Mom worked at the police station so dad came home and worked the rest of the afternoon in the yard. He got it all done and even had time for a shower before he picked up mom. Good thing he took that shower cuz he was real stinky.
About a week ago, when mom and dad were at Walmart, mom picked up a package of crispy tortillas. Yesterday, on the way home, dad stopped at Albertson's and picked up a can of refried beans and some salsa and guacamole. When he got home he put some frozen taquitos on a cookie sheet and used the gas side of the new grill to heat them up. Mom didn't know you could use the grill as an oven and not heat up the kitchen with the big oven. Then dad made tostadas with the crispy tortillas, the beans and other things. Mom made some homemade pico-de-gio and that's what they had for dinner. They busted up some of the crispy tortillas and they made great chips for the salsa.
Today mom is going to work at the police station again and dad is going to continue cleaning the carpets.
Today will be party cloudy and even hotter, with a high of 94 and a low of 69.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Popeye
