My sister and I had been from home to home and my mom wanted a sun conure and took both of us. Unfortunately my sister died a few years ago. We used to groom each other, had our babies together and fed each others' babies. Mom thought I'd be heartbroken but I was really happy! Now I have more time to focus on my owner.

  Hello Squeaky
My mom feels better off and on.She still feels like she has no energy and her chest and throat really hurt and she has a cough.Good thing she goes on vacation in a few days.
That party bus sounds like it would be fun it's to bad you couldn't go.
My parronts watched the movie Get Hard with will Ferrell and Kevin heart. My mom was pretty dissapointed the previews made it look much funnier than it was.
Sunny again today it's getting warmer 60 today and mid 60's tomorrow. If it keeps up maybe I can get out soon.
Well my mom needed to order more checks so she just sent cash before she got the info about PayPal hope that's okay.
Hope your having a nice day say hi to Picabo for me.

  Hi Squeaky
A party bus? Sounds like a good ride to us! It also seems your GHO is getting a good variety of food. At the center, they feed the raptors a variety, too, but mostly rats. Martha, the resident GHO, won't eat chicken meat unless they roll it in feathers first. I guess she doesn't like the way it looks otherwise.
On Willie's page is the cart I'm talking about below. Mom did that presentation on Sunday to the public.
Just a brief mention of the cart contents: the animal pelts that mom displayed were hunted probably 100 years ago, when guys went and trophy hunted. A lot of the collection is from a guy named Childs Frick, a friend of Carnegie's and son of Henry Frick, whom you might remember from Peppino's blogs. If the pelts are newer, they were donated by the zoo after the animal passed away.
Mom added stuff to the squirrel mix she brought home yesterday, some kibble and more nuts, so she has a lot of food now for the released squirrels.
Today a guy is coming over to measure the cabinets and show mom what's available. She is anxious to see what he has to offer. Then later, she will go to PetSmart for a few doggie things, like new tie outs and maybe a new leash. She wants to look for a treat pouch that hooks onto her jeans if they have them, too.
After that, she's ours for the rest of the day. I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Squeaky and Picabo,
Thanks for helping with the set up of the Ballroom for Angel Mario's celebration of life.

I thought it went well, not a dry eye in the room.

It's a good thing I put the little Kleenex boxes on each pew perch.

Just about every birdie used one. I had mine under my wing so no one could see it.

I think it helped Angel Mario's flock to see just how many birdies cared for him.

Just like my fister Angel Sallykins. :)

Thanks again for all your help and love and support.

Your just the greatest gal! Pookie gives her a hug and kiss. :)

Here's a vote for you.

Thanks, it was a surprise to win a ribbon for my pic.
The robins are around usually the middle of April to the middle of May. Don't know when the snow will melt.
I woke up to snow again this morning. But, the sun finally came out in the afternoon. Looks like rain for tomorrow. Maybe it will get rid of some snow. Where is the ground?
Not much going on here. Mom is sick with a sinus infection and cold. I took good care of her.

  Hi Squeaky,
Thanks for the congrats! No, unfortunately we were not able to make the milonga this time. We were very disappointed and we heard it was very good, as usual. Kiddo and Taz do a wonderful job on them.

Congrats to you for your win!

Hope your week is off to a good start!! Leaving a vote for you!

  Hi Squeaky
I know I probably asked you before, but what do you feed your GHO? And where do you get it? At the center, they used to get control rats from Pitt, but they shut down the animal labs many years ago. Then they bought them online but they were prohibitively expensive. Now the center raises its own, and it's a lot more economical. They even eat all the leftover food that used to get thrown away.
Today mom got some bad news. Quincy and Danny, the bob white quail who lived at the center, got put down yesterday. It's a shame, but both boys were close to 9 years old! In the wild, they live for a year or 2, and in captivity they can survive to 5, so we were lucky to have the boys for nearly 9 years. Mom cried, of course, but she realized a few months ago that their time was short.
In other news, mom attended a mammal handling class today, and at the end, they said to take mammals off site the volunteer first had to go with staff a time or 2. Mom asked if that was necessary for her, since she's been doing that for 13 years! They told her no, they would grandfather her in, haha.
Then she worked at the museum for the Preservation Fair today. She worked at a table that showed the effects of things like water, abrasion, light, and even using the wrong kind of pen could damage artifacts, prints, photos, etc. Did you know that Sharpies are not permanent, and can cause damage to your CDs? Mom found that out today. She writes on all the CDs she burns, and uses a sharpie. Guess that stops today.
I hope you are having a great evening. We'll talk more tomorrow. Hugs to you, Falco

Yes I think you were just leaving as I was pretty much getting there. As I was responding to you you guys left.BC has been acting up for me all day so I'm surprised I was able to get to the milonga.
I saw we came in third for best couple that's great.
It's a bit warmer today than yesterday in the low 40's today with lots of sun.
My mom has a bit of a cold nothing to bad just a sore throat and some coughing and she feels tired and run down.
My weekend is quiet since it's my mom's weekend to work but that's okay she's on vacation in a week and I will get lots of time with her then.
Goodnight to you and sweet dreams too.

  Hi Squeaky!
Just to let you know Spot has already set the time and place on the calender page.

It'll be this Sunday at 4 pm.

Thank you Sugar for putting Mario's Celebration of life on the calendar page for all to view.

This way every birdie can come and join in.

The Castle Page number is 239094 and it will be in the Ballroom this Sunday.
I'm guessing they only have 1 ballroom ? I don't want to get lost.

I guess Spot knew the Ballroom page number, that's good. :)

Since he said it starts at 4 pm EST I'll try to set up early so that if some birdies can only come in the morning it will be okay. I'll be there with my flock to welcome them. :)

Here's a vote for you my sweet friend !

Love & hugs,

Well, the cage you had when I was there was white. Then you got a new condo but your dad hadn't put it together. He was waiting and I never heard anymore. It looks nice.
Tell your mom to have fun with taxes ... hehehehe.
Hope you can make it to the Milonga. Join us at the band table as usual.
Today I went for a ride in the car with mom. I saw some sun and asked if we were going to Florida? She said no but we should be. Dad was using some smelly ant stuff in the basement so, we had to be gone most of the day.
Very sad news today for the Pitts-Hays Eagle parronts. The remaining egg cracked open but was not viable. Mom eagle is so sad and staying with the lost baby. I hope to see them again next year.

I love your new picture I hope that's not a new egg and one of the old ones.
After the weekend it looks like it will start warming up nicely here it will be just in time since my mom is on vacation the week after next .Only got to 31 today but it was very sunny so that was nice.
I bet that census guy got a big kick out of your mom knowing exactly how many lights there are and getting to practice his English.
I bit my mom pretty hard earlier when I was stepping up onto her hand to take a shower with her. Her hand was pouring blood and boy was she mad.I can't help it my hormones are really starting to act up.
I hope your Internet will keep working with all those tourists there . Hope to see you at the milonga tomorrow night. Goodnight and sweet dreams.

  Hi Squeaky
Hope that's one of your old eggs, and not a new one. That is our first baby great horned owl at the center this year, isn't it adorable?
It was snowing when mom left the center today! Where is spring??? She had the bunny room, but there was only one bunny in there, so it was quick. She also cleaned the main aviary and the rolling aviary with the doves in. There were 5 doves and 13 pigeons today! She got the areas cleaned, got all the birds and the bunny fed, then went in the kitchen and did dishes for about 45 minutes, until her hands got too cold and she had to take a break. The gas guys are still up there digging, so maybe some time soon there will be gas again. The dryer turned out to be gas, so the interns are taking laundry to the shelter or to a local laundromat to clean. It's pretty much a full carload when they go, too.
Tonight is the last night of the fish fry at a local church where mom goes every Friday in Lent for dinner for her and Jeff, our neighbor. Mom told him to savor it tonight, as it will be a year before he tastes anything this good again.
I hope you are having a good day, getting spring like weather, and of course, enjoying cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hey Squeaky,
Thanks for offering to help with the Celebration of Angel Mario's life.

I'm waiting to get some information from King Flitzer like which Ballroom and the page number.

But I'm afraid it might have to be next week Sunday as there's not enough time this week to spread the word and set up the decorations and stuff. Well need more time, plus the Milonga is Saturday so a lot of the birdies might be hung over or too tired.

I think it would be best next Sunday that would give us more time to prepare.

What do you think?

Let me know as I'm still waiting to hear from King Flitzer too.

I thank you in advance for helping and participating with the preparations for Angel Mario's Celebration of Life party.

I think he and his flock will be happy with our celebration plans.

Here's a vote for you.

Love & hugs,

Awww, look at you ... your very own Easter egg. Love the pic! Is that a new cage?
Thanks for liking my bunny. I got her last Easter. I was tested and the lab said I was a girl but, I knew that!
That is amazing about Kirby or should we say Kirbie?
That would be fun to have a girls night. better wait until those people leave! Hope to see you at the Milonga.
Thanks for liking Jess's pic.
Today was an all day snow. This is a good day to hang out on the perch in my fuzzy robe and slippers. I hope we get early spring weather for us ... middle of April. Where is the sun??? Friday, we will get a little more snow :(

Okay I will let you surprise me with your hat sounds good to me because I'm not big on shopping.
That's exciting news about your friend Kirby turning out to be a girl.My mom always tells people I'm a boy until I lay a egg.
Has gone back to winter here only going to be in the low 30's for a high tomorrow. My mom just couldn't get warm today and she's normally on the warmer side so she hopes she's not coming down with something. Now her throat is starting to hurt so she's drinking some tea .She's got the day off tomorrow and is filed on resting at home I like the sound of that.
Yes if you can't make it to the milonga I can talk for both of us.I should be there at least I hope to be.If anything I will be late since it's my mom's weekend to work.
That dessert your mom made sounds delicious let's hang out and share a piece. Goodnight and sweet dreams.

You're the absolute sweetest. Thank you so much for the flowers and the pretty card with its best wishes. Oh my, do I hope everything comes out alright. That's an understatement for sure. Thanks too for all the advice you shared with me about this egg-laying business. I hope if it ever has to happen again, it goes a lot smoother than this first time did. As for figuring out what inspired a conure egg, that could be tough. I'm not around a sleepy hut except at night and I don't sleep in it, I perch on the top, lined up with Paige and Felix. (Mom doesn't know wether Paige is a M or a F. I do but I'm not telling.) I've done that for years. The only real change is Felix's presence. We're friends but we're not, you know, "friendly". We hang out together but he's never made a pass at me. I hope I'm not sending any sort of message that's suggesting he should. How awful it would be to have to live separately from him; we're a party of conures who have a great time playing together. I have no idea what I'd do with an egg. I didn't get the chance to even look at the first one. After how I felt I don't think I'd care to snuggle up with it.

You're right about feeling lucky about having mom and I know mom is feeling doubly-lucky to have me. She's whispered that in my ear a whole bunch of times in the last couple of days.

Well, it's time to hop off mom's shoulder and into the night cage. Sweet dreams to you, Squeaky, and thanks again for everything.

  Hello Squeaks!
How's things with you these days? I hear it's been so warm there it's almost too hot to hang out on the patio sometimes. Boy, that's sure different than it is here. I think what we need is something in between what you and I have, yes?

I have a bit of news for you. It involves an egg.... and the letter "F" next to gender instead of an "M". Yup, mom's just figured out that I'm a girl, not a guy. Quite the shocker. Unfortunately I didn't lay the egg. It was stuck and I let mom know by acting very sleepy, fluffing up my feathers and looking just all over very sad. I got a long ride in the car for looking that way but within ten seconds of when my vet picked me up she announced that an egg was the cause of my sorrows. Things got really rude after that and I'd just as soon forget all the poking (shots) and peeking (how embarrassing) that went on. In the end the egg was pierced and the (unfertilized) yolk was withdrawn from the soft shell. This meant that I had to get the shell out on my own and that was not a fun task. Mom ended up rushing me back to the vet's two days later because it seemed I was doing worse. I think mom thought she was going to lose me. There were moments I actually wondered myself. The upside to all of this drama is that I've spent a lot of the last five days laying under mom's chin sleeping, and sometimes getting wet because mom's eyes were leaking water on me. At the moment I'm still in my recovery tank where it's toasty warm and humid but I'm finally eating and moving around like a bird who plans on living awhile yet. Another interesting thing, I've never seen my mom so excited about bird poop like she has been lately. In fact the other day after the stupid egg shell was finally out I nailed mom with a huge deposit right on her bare foot but she was actually super excited about it. Strange, very strange. Anyway, I wanted you to be the first to know about my change in gender information. Maybe you'd be willing to share with me some secrets about laying eggs successfully. I'm definitely not very good at this process and will likely have to deal with it again sometime. Why the sudden need to produce eggs after 7 years, I don't know. Maybe it's that Felix is a boy though just a youngster still. I've been the only GCC here for five years but now have the company of two so maybe that inspired the change. Then again, it might've just been time. The Vet Lady gave me calcium supplements which are to be added to my water but mom is thinking there should already be plenty of calcium in my diet thanks to the ground brown egg shells that are added to our birdie loaf and sometimes sprinkled on our rice. The parakeets and 'tiels don't seem to have this soft egg problem and I eat the same things they do. It's a mystery why I had such a soft shelled egg and I'm hoping it never happens again. That whole experience has been awful, although all the mom-cuddle time has been really nice.

If you want me to go derby hat shopping with you let me know or I bet you might want to surprise me with the pretty hat you pick out.
How did your dad do with the golf?One of my mom's uncles got his very first hole in one this past Tuesday he was so excited.
My mom's only been to a Costco once she didn't think there was much there we could use.A lady brought one of their cakes into work one day it was huge. It was like this quadruple chocolate cake my mom had a piece and felt like she was just shaking later from all the chocolates. Made her not want chocolate cake again with how rich it was.
Not sure of plans here this weekend. My mom is hoping for a quiet one.Maybe dinner out with dad on Saturday night and a movie at home later on.We will see.
Let's go back to the kissing booth I had fun watching cartoons with you. Have a good night.

  Hi Squeaky
I could see the excitement if it were a new store, but if it's just replacing the old Costco, what's the big deal? Your mom was wise to stay with you, and you all got cuddles out of it too! Mom says thanks for the heads up on Birdman, too. She will wait.
Mom didn't actually get the squirrels yesterday. They were getting too stressed with the girls trying to catch them. Mom thinks Friday when she goes up for her shift, she can just pop some chicken wire over the fronts of their hide boxes and take them home to release.
Well, spring starts tomorrow, and we're supposed to get 4 or 5 inches of snow! Not Fair, I say.
Mom's class on baby mammals went well last night, it lasted for about 2 1/2 hours, which is typical. There were a lot of volunteers there. Mom loved when Jill was talking about baby bunnies, she said she could see people shaking their heads and saying they'd never feed them. The reason is that baby bunnies get tube fed, and it's pretty tricky. Mom knows how to do it, but only does it in a pinch.
Today there were 2 middle school tours on evolution at the museum. During the first one a fire alarm went off, so everyone had to vacate the building. It took over a half hour of standing in the cold before they were allowed back inside. As a result, the tour was extended for that time, and they picked up the second tour a half hour late. That was fine, because they hadn't finished their lunch yet when the alarm went off. What was refreshing to mom is that the kids had a real grasp of evolution and deep time! For middle school kids, they were pretty interested and engaged. She got to show off her 380 million year old ammonite, too, which is always fun. (By the way, it's from New York.)
I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Yes and no. Yes I'm trying to behave but this satellite dish is so uncomfortable that I keep tearing the cardboard ones out. Hehehehe. So no I'm not behaving. :)

That's my name Sneaky Pookie! Mom just made that poncho thing for me today cause she thought I wouldn't chew it up, she was wrong!

So she took it off me and says I can wear that one to sleep. Like that's gonna make a difference, I don't think so!!

I can't wait till Saturday, I sure hope the vet says that these dishes can come off!

Mom says my boo boo is looking okay. But I feel like a greased pig! Yucky yucky!!

Plus I'm getting the oral meds down my throat twice a day. That greasy antibiotic cream mom puts on me 4 times a day! Ewwwww!!!

I am not a happy camper! :(

Here's a vote for you, that's the best thing that I did all day. :)

  Hi Squeaks
I'm having a ton of BC problems the last two days!!!
Glad you don't have any more eggs!
Oh no, sorry your dad needs surgery. Will he have it done down there? Better get his golf in now ... hope he wins! Tiger woods isn't playing much since all his back problems and surgery ... don't tell your dad.
We are getting ready for Jess's b-day on the 20th and surprise party on the 21st. The boyfriends parronts are staying with us. My mom is a wreck! I hope it all goes well.
Saw a really crummy movie called Birdman. Both my parronts said it was a waste of time. I think they missed Big Eyes and The Theory of Everything while we were on vacation. Will have to wait to rent. Mom wants to see Still Alice but it hasn't been up here.
yes, we still have several feet of snow ... it's still March!
The same weather again today. We might get high 30's on Thursday. The BC is acting up again tonight ...GRRRRR!
Dad is busy with maple sugaring time. I'm helping mom clean the house. Have some tea and a cozy night.

  Hi Squeaky
Thanks for the heads up on Chappie. Mom saw Sigourney Weaver on one of the late night shows last week, and she talked it up, but now mom's thinking if it comes to HBO she will see it then. She wants to see Still Alice and Birdman, though.
Mom had a tour at the museum this morning with third graders. They were doing American Indian hall, and it was the first time in awhile that mom has done that tour. She had a good time, and apparently the kids did too. One of the boys said it had been awhile since he was at the museum, and he had forgotten how much fun it was.
After the tour, mom picked up a few things to make fudge for next week's staff meeting and spring luncheon. Everyone likes her fudge, but she doesn't do anything special, just follows the recipe on the Kraft marshmallow stuff. It's fairly straightforward and easy.
She then went to the wildlife center to pick up a box of squirrels for soft release on our property. The squirrels weren't ready, so she waited for awhile for the girls to catch them and box them up. The squirrels were getting too stressed, though, so mom decided she'd pick them up on Friday after her shift. She is depending on one of the other volunteers to come here with a ladder to mount the box high enough in a tree for them to feel comfortable.
Tonight is training for baby mammals. Mom and all the volunteers who want to work with babies during the spring have to attend the class. Mom has attended this class at least 12 times in the past 13 years, but each year brings something a bit different, so it's always worth going.
I hope you are having a good day today, feeling spring approaching (2 more days!), and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

if you wear, eat or drink anything green you will have good luck. anyone not wearing green must be pinched

four leaf clovers are lucky because they protect from witchcraft. if you cross poison ivy with a four leaf clover you will have a rash of good luck.

A bird stumbles up to the only other patron in a bar and asks if he could buy him a drink.
"Why of course," comes the reply.
The first bird asks: "Where are you from?"
"I'm from Ireland," replies the second bird.
The first bird responds: "You don't say, I'm from Ireland too! Let's have another round to Ireland."
"Of Course," replies the second bird.
Curious, the first bird then asks: "Where in Ireland are you from?"
"Dublin," comes the reply.
"I can't believe it," says the first bird.
"I'm from Dublin too! Let's have another drink to Dublin."
"Of course," replies the second .
Curiosity again strikes and the first bird asks:
"What school did you go to?"
"Saint Mary's," replies the second bird.
"I graduated in '62."
"This is unbelievable!" the first bird says.
"I went to Saint Mary's and I graduated in '62, too!"
About that time in comes one of the regulars and sits down at the bar. and asks "whats up"
"Nothing much," replies the bartender. "The O'Birdy twins are drunk again."

  Hi Squeaky
The Prairie Chicken is one of americas best dancers and their courtship performance is the sort nature documentaries love to feature.

Prairie chickens are native birds of North America. There are two kinds of prairie chicken, and both are chunky, brown, chicken-like prairie natives. The Greater Prairie-Chicken is the larger of the two varieties and has a broader range, encompassing eleven Midwestern and Plains states. Greater Prairie-Chickens prefer tallgrass prairies, Lesser Prairie-Chickens choose a shortgrass prairie habitat. Once rather widespread, Lesser Prairie-Chickens now exist only in northern Texas, western Oklahoma, southwestern Kansas, and southeastern Colorado.the Greater and Lesser have suffered catastrophic decline due to loss of habitat.

Prairie chickens are called arena birds because of the males tendencyto pick out a special area, or arena, in which to display for interested females. The male prairie chickens arrive at their arenas just before sunrise. The arenas, also called leks, look no different to humans than the rest of the prairie — that is, until a female or two glides or struts onto the scene, and the males start trying to impress.Bending forward and raising their tail feathers and the special dark feathers near their heads, the male prairie chickens then inflate the air sacs along their throats (orange in the Greater and pink or purplish in the Lesser). From these sacs the birds let out great booming calls, which resonate across the early morning prairie lands. “Ooo-loo-loo, ohh-loo-loo” echoes from all around as the suitors serenade females. Sounds is similar to an amplified sound of blowing across the top of an empty bottle. To top off the performance, the anxious males rapidly stamp the ground as they call, thus creating a strange song-and-dance routine.
It’s quite a site and puts most other courting rituals,to shame.

Beware the Ides of March.

Caesar, as he passed the soothsayer on his way to the senate chambers, mocked and called Spurinna a false prophet- for the Ides of March had come to pass and he remained unscathed. But the prophet warned that though it had indeed come, it had not passed. Then Caesar, entering the senate conclave, headlong into the hands of fate did violently perish.
The Kingbird's Omen

A king-bird flew in Pompey’s Hall
Pursued by others from the grove
With laurel sprig in hand it strove
To hard elude the brawl

But overcome by violence wide
It fell the victim of its foes
And as they there in triumph rose
On purple floors it died

These symbols in Spurinna stirred
And warnings out to Caesar went
But fruitless was the message sent
The omen went unheard

Then there he was near Pompey’s Hall
Pursued by fate and too by Jove
And as he toward the senate strove
There Caesar met his fall

For overcome by violence wide
He fell the victim of his foes
And as they there in triumph rose
On scarlet floors he died

thankyou for your support for my BOTM campaign

  Hi Squeaky
Mom wanted to see Big Eyes, was it good? She still wants to see the third Night at the Museum and Still Alice as well. There are always robins here, they don't migrate. Most robins shift a little south and change their diet for winter. Instead of worms, they eat berries, ends of twigs, suet, etc. We notice them more this time of year because the ground is thawing so they're looking for worms again, and it's mating season as well.
Today mom has to work at the museum. She is doing tours in Dinosaur Hall for the general public again. She likes doing them, because each group is different. We are hoping when she comes home that she will spend the rest of the day with us. I bet she will, as I peeked at her calendar and there was nothing else on it for today.
It's cold again here, guess winter is not quite done with us, even though we're finished with it. In 5 days spring will be here, and we are hoping it will bring some nice springlike weather so our crocuses, daffodils, hyacinths, and tulips can come out and visit us again. I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Sneaky & Picabo,
My visit to the Vet was good and she wants to see me next Saturday. My boo boo looks okay but mom has to put the antibiotics on more often now.

Mom made me a cardboard satellite dish for my neck as I was tearing up the one from the vet. So now I'm in HD with 2 satellite dishes on my neck.

Mom says i've been tearing up the cardboard one but that's okay whatever keeps me busy and my BooBoo heals.

Thank you for the well wishes and prayers as I heal from the tree stabbing me.

Here's a vote for you.

Love & hugs,

Sneaky Pookie Bond 007. Hehehehe :)

  Hi Squeaks
On no, I don't like that singing either, poor mom. Sounds like your parronts have been very busy ... rest up.
As for you, STOP laying eggs ... you are not a chicken! What will Hulk think?
Happy to hear that Picabo is enjoying the derby Farms. It's a nice place for the jockeys and horses.
This is a busy month in our family for b-days!!!! Jess (20th - first day of spring) and her boyfriend (14th) are having a joint b-day party this Saturday. So I will not be at the Milonga. I hope to sing a song via Skype.
I put away my beach chair, shades and flip flops. Today was a cold 35 with high winds and snow. Yes, SNOW! That was a short spring for me, hope it gets better soon. It's back to hot tea for me.

I has fun with you today on the track practicing Union Rags we should do it again tomorrow I will take you for a ride.
Oh my mom use to really hate that when she would go out for her birthday and the wait staff would sing talk about embarrassing. Luckily that hasn't happened in a long time your poor mom.
Sure sounds like it was a busy week hopefully this upcoming one will be better.
Still haven't seen any Robins but it continues to be nice but a cool down to the 40's is coming starting Tuesday. Anything is better than snow sure hope we have seen the last of that.
I was naughty yesterday and boy was my mom unhappy with me.I went into the kitchen to chomp on the wood and when my mom came in to get me and told me to step up I kept pinching the skin on her wrist and broke the skin.Well then she was going to put me in my cage for a time out only I wouldn't step off her and started pinching her again.She left soon after to go to her parents house for a visit and didn't even leave cartoons on for me like she normally does. 
Oh boy not another egg 4 now that's to many.No more okay Squeaky.
Have a pleasant night and sweet dreams my love.

The Red-capped Manakin (Pipra mentalis), aka theRed-capped Manakin Moonwalking Bird is an amazing little bird. Its famous moonwalking behavior captured on film and an all-time favorite bird video.

Manakins are sparrow-sized birds that live in tropical forests in South and Central America. Males perform elaborate courtship displays to impress females. Included in its repertoire is Michael Jackson's moonwalk. Or does Michael Jackson do the manakin moonwalk? Maybe he stole it from the birds! Even people who aren't into birding are amazed by the "moonwalking bird". The film is just slowed-down videography caught on special high-speed cameras. This advanced camera can capture a few seconds of action at up to 1,000 frames per second. So what you are seeing in the video is not real-time. The high-speed film also helped to explain how the manakins made all the weird buzzes and other noises when displaying. It's produced not vocally, but rather by the vibration of their wing tips. They actually move faster than a hummingbird's wings!

Check out the videos on U-Tube. type in manakin doing moon walk or michael jackson dancing bird.
