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.

Hi! My name is Squeaky- Vote for Laka for BOTM 259145

I am a Sun Conure from Chuburna Puerto, Intl.

Squeakerdoodle, Squeaks

20 years old   F

Sun Conure

I adore almonds and fruits! And Special K cereal and breakfast bars! And oatmeal!

My favorite place to hang out is with my mom! I love to sit on her shoulder and in her lap and get scritches and chew on her bird shirt!

I don't like fingers and I'm not fond of men! I insist on sitting on my mom's lap only if her old chewed up, raggedy sweatshirt is there for me to chew.

She lets me groom her face and gives me showers in the kitchen sink! I love to sit on her head and groom her hair in the evenings!

I love to chew rope! I love to take baths in my water bowl! I help mom serve dinner to the flock every night! I love to sit on my mom's lap or shoulder every morning for hours and blog on BC!.

You said you LIKE your fingers? Hehehe.

  Hi Squeaky
Cute pic, even if it is sideways. Mom was watching a vet show the other night. It's Dr. Jeff from Colorado, and during this show, he went to Mexico to do some free work on animals. He was in Merida and Progreso, so mom was looking for Magali and your mom, hahaha.
Today mom had a fourth grade group for PA natural history. They were fantastic! She's a little biased, though. The second group was a bunch of first grade kids doing an animal tour. They had the attention span of goldfish, so it's a good thing they had 4 chaperones for the group. Mom finally gave up and just played I Spy with them in the dioramas of North American and African wildlife. They seemed to like that better.
Mom stopped back at the feed store to pick up the suet that got delivered yesterday afternoon. There was only one kind, and she usually buys a variety. She didn't care, just got 10 of the Nutty treats. Then she stopped for milk before finally making it home where she could change into shorts and a tank top. It's pretty hot outside; the car registered mid 80s and the deck thermometer registered high 70s. So after the blogs are done, I think mom will be out tending the new plants, watering them at least. I hope you are having a fine day today and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Squeaks
Love your new pic but it's sideways .... can you turn it?
I stayed home with dad while mom went to the shower. She had a good time and was so happy to see Jess. She also met the new in-laws in person and loved the family. And, she got to spend time with her grand-puppy, Luna. Her wonderful son-in-law took her around as did my skinsis. Mom and Jess went shopping and got more things for the wedding. That will be in a month (06/24).
We haven't seen George ... still with girlfriend in another pond. This is a bad time to see the animals around here.
Sure hope your mom feels better soon. Is everything finished at home?
I'm back! I missed mom but she had a good time at the bridal shower and site seeing. I found out that I'm honorary flowerbird girl. This is eggciting! Mom got home at 3am so has been moving slow today. She missed me and dad and our warm weather (88 to 90). It was in the 60's and low 70's in UT! Hope all is well with everybirdie.

  Hey Squeaky,
I'm surprised that you didn't take place with your pretty hat. :(


Today mom came home sick. She was coughing all night long is what it seemed like. But she went to work then she went to the clinic. The same one that she went to the first time she got sick. She thinks it's a relapse or something. She got some good antibiotics this time. It's called the "z" pack? It's only for 3 days so I'm guessing that it's pretty strong.

Mom has bronchitis and what seemed like walking pneumonia, but that was not confirmed.

Here's a vote for you. Hope your day was nice and sunny. ;)

Love & hugs,

Oh no, I'm so sorry to hear that your mom is still really sick. Tell her to get well soon ... love and hugs.
The BC crashed last night after dinner. Crystal came to our rescue.
No party for mom this year. She could have had one except the people all went back up north.

5/10
We had a nice day today of low 80's. I watched my parronts swim and chatted with Molly Mockingbird, Redd the Cardinal and then E (egret) flew over. It was a good day for me! Mom gave me dinner as they were leaving for the beach. I got angry and tossed my dish. The parronts said the ocean was warm and the dinner on the beach was greyt. Well, not for me as my dinner sat on the bottom of my condo. Sent to bed with no dinner! Mom says I'd better get up on the right side of the perch ... whatever!
5/11
The BC is back yay! I did get up on the right side of the perch today and ate my dinner like a nice girlbird should. Mom found out that George Gator flew the coop (well his pond). He left looking for a lady gator, hope he comes back. They say that they change ponds sometimes, he will be missed. My parronts stay in our pool so, I know where to find them.

  Hi Squeaky and Picabo
Don’t think of her as gone away
Her journey’s just begun
Life holds so many facets
This earth is only one.
Just think of her as resting
From the sorrows and the tears
In a place of warmth and comfort
Where there are no days and years
Think how she must be wishing
That we could know today
How nothing but our sadness
Can really pass away
And think of her as living
In the hearts of those she touched
For nothing loved is lost
And she was loved so much

  Hi Squeaky
I just love that pic!
Yesterday was a good Mother's day, mom picked up her new glasses, then got those coupons credited back to her gift card at Bed, Bath, etc. Then she stopped to see Aunt Ginny, who had made brunch for her kids. Mom ate there, because there were a lot of leftovers.
When mom got home, there was a message from her daughter, so she called. Jamie and her husband brought over pizza and salad for dinner, as well as some gorgeous flowers for mom. Of course, they brought plants: a huge begonia and some oriental lilies. They also brought over a new wind chime. Mom loves those things.
This morning at the center, mom did all the raptor mews, then cleaned the turtle pen. The baby great horned owls are doing quite well, and everyone else looked good, too. She also had the timer for the half hour incubator, so she was feeding baby birds in between the rest. She also managed to get a bunch of dishes done on her shift. It's that time of year when dishes and laundry pile up if nobody pitches in.
It's only about 55 degrees and cloudy right now, so the doors are closed. I guess we won't be going outside today. I hope you are having a good day there, getting lots of sunshine as well as cuddles. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Squeaky,
Thanks for coming by and helping us celebrate my Angel Birdie of the day.

I'm glad you had a good time, as I know I did. I always enjoy having friends over celebrating something special. :)

Did you get enough to eat ?

Yeah the parronts cook for what seems an Army so feel free to come by my page and eat leftovers as there's a lot.

We can bring some by to the pie shop too and I was thinking of bringing some food to the KB also. I know how every birdie likes to chow down. :)

Glad you were here to celebrate with me. :)

It's been so hot in Hawaii lately and tonight we got some rain. That's good to cool off the island and keep it green. ;)

Mahalo for your friendship and I always enjoy hosting parties. :)

Big Angel wing hugs and beaky kisses.

Here's a vote for you.

Love from above,

Your friend Angel Sallykins

I can just see Picabo now with his feathers shaved off good thing you got a break from those hot temps. We are looking forward to a warmer day tomorrow where it could hit 80 maybe even 82.
My mom kind of wants to see that Captain America movie but probably won't make it for another week or so.
Oh that's terrible with the lovebird poor baby.
Practice with Whirlaway is going great he's such a gentle horse a big baby at that
Thanks for sharing that chocolate it was delicious. It's way past my bedtime so I better hit the perch for the night. Sweet dreams my love.

  Hi Squeakt!
Laka waves to her and says over here! The buffet line starts here. Laka passes her a big plate and it has sections in it like a school lunch tray. This way you put the most in the big section and the rest in the little sections.

Laka describes all the food on the table. There's Kalua pig which was roasted in an underground oven. And it has a smokey flavor which is really good. Then we have the luau leaves or some sort of spinach and the fat from the meat is what gives this dish a very succulent flavor. Then of course we have the sticky rice or fried potatoes. There's also my favorite tater tots, mashed taters and macaroni/potato salad.

There's bar-b-Q on a stick teriyaki style which is also a local favorite too. There's toss mix greens with baby spinach and cucumbers and grape tomatoes with a lemon wedge. There's Italian dressing along with a papaya seed dressing which is pretty good too,

There's a big bowl of fruits all mixed together. Grapes, watermelon, kiwi, strawberries, cantaloupe, apples and olives too.

For the dessert table there's Teds chocolate Mac nut haupia pie, moms pineapple cake, chocolate dobash cake, pumpkin pie, apple Dutch pie and dads favorite key lime pie.

To wash it all down we have every kind of local juices, hot tea, hot cocoa, coffee, diet soda, regular soda and of course bottled water.

Everyone is sure to waddle out of here or sleep over. :)

I guarantee there will be lots of leftovers tomorrow and the next day too.

So help yourself and enjoy our Hawaiian style luau and later dad will be setting off the fireworks and later I will be dancing the hula. If I don't fall asleep eating too much. :)

Here's a vote for you and much Mahalo's for letting our fister Angel Sallykins be Queen for a day.

She is so happy, Laka sighs, just look at her, she's gleaming with sunshine. :)

With love from the Hawaii Ohana. :)

  Hey Squeaky,
Thank you for letting me be Queen Angel for today. I sure do like all the new stuff at the Castle. And those Mac nut trees we grew, boy they're growing faster than weeds! How cool is that? :)

There's a luau going on tonight at the Castle along with King Grey Bird so come on over.

We'll have all the Hawaiian favorites including the sticky rice! :)

Lots of local sweets like Leonard's malasadas and those purple poi donuts too.

Mom is making a ton of pineapple cake so we will be happy campers. And as the night goes on dad is doing the fireworks thing at 8 pm and we'll also have the bonfire too.

Marshmallows and smores galore. Come and stuff yourself and then go on a diet the next day. That's what we'll be doing. :)

Dancing doing the disco duck and other favorite songs will be playing and Laka will also be doing the hula too. We can all dance along with her. Grass skirts will be provided so no worries. :)

A big Mahalo for letting me be Queen for the day. :)

Love, hugs and a vote for you.

I want to thank you for your votes for me in the quest to get my BOTM Badge.

It's just not fair as I had worked so hard through out the whole month campaigning. Only to find out that the BC was not fixing the site.

Perhaps with every birdies help me and the others like Kacey and Mikey will get our recognition like we should have.

Oh thank you that's so sweet. But there must be another way of doing this. What do you think?

Yes I agree that BooBoos idea is great but I don't think mom is up to that much campaigning again. :(

She's still on the horse pills of antibiotics twice a day. Now her organs are hurting from all that coughing. :(. She has ta hold her tummy when coughing as she might break a gut. So to speak.

Today mom is doing more resting and sleeping as she has ta go back to work in Monday.

Hope you have a nice sunny day!

  Hi Squeaky
Mom got quartz countertops here, for the same reason your mom got glass: cheaper than granite, and doesn't need sealed. The quartz came in many gorgeous colors, too. That glass counter sounds great. Mom likes the idea of a turquoise couch, but if you can get a couch and a bright accent chair, that would be neat, too.
I had another visit with Dr. Pleban yesterday afternoon, and she says I'm healing quite nicely. All my meds are done, and she said I don't need any more. I have several feathers growing in, the scab on the inside of my leg is gone, and the big one on the outside is looking good. She says everything is moving right along. She left my little turtleneck collar on, and wants to see me next week. She made the appointment, to make sure her staff knows that when she says one week, that's what she means.
My appointment yesterday was at 3:30, which put us in the middle of rush hour traffic again, but mom chose a different route home, so the trip home only took 40 minutes, not 80 like last week. Next week my appointment is 2:40, so we shouldn't hit any traffic there or back except for school buses.
Today it's raining hard out there, but of course the dogs still wanted a walk. It's funny, because they hide under the overhang on the deck when mom puts them out in the rain, but they'll walk on leads right out in the rain! Mom got wet, too, even though she was carrying an umbrella. It's a spring rain, though, so it will be good for the flowers. Temps are mid 50s, it feels like.
Mom is getting that laser treatment on her eyes today, we think. She doesn't know if he'll do both eyes today or not, but we're kind of hoping he does, just to get it over with.
I hope you are having a good day, getting lots of sunshine, cuddles, and scritches. Hugs, Falco

It's been upper 80's to 91 here. We still are very dry. The pool temp has been 90 and mom loves it ... just like bath water!!!
Our new sofa is a soft aqua and mom loves it. If you got the other sofa, you can always put aqua throw pillows on it for color.
Hmmm, that glass would scare my mom ... like your dinning room table! Wonder if yoiu could get the clear glass in frosted? That would look greyt.
Have fun with your moving in your "new" home.
Today was another sunny and warm day in the upper 80's. We are still waiting for rain. And, we had a new visitor. Bunni came with a bunny friend right up to our front screen door this morning. But, they didn't leave any Easter eggs or treats. I guess that's over with. They are very friendly.

  Hi Squeaky
Wow, it would be so great for us to meet your mom in Sept! Then next October, she will be ready to meet everyone else at the palooza!
I mutilated my leg because I was angry that mom left for FL, she thinks. The vet agrees with her! I was out of my hormonal time for 2 days, just getting used to cuddling with mom, and she took off! Well, I showed her! I wouldn't let Bree into my cage to clean it, so all she could do was change my papers in the bottom and wipe the outside of the cage. I started pulling feathers on my right leg, and ended up with a dime sized hole in my thigh. I've been on meds for nearly 2 weeks now, tomorrow is my last day. Wed. I go see the vet again, and maybe get my collar off. If not, that's okay, because new feathers are just starting to grow and mom doesn't want me to bother them.
Mom got back late from the center today. She went up about 15 minutes early, and started right away to do animal intakes. One couple brought in 3 bunnies in their nest (mom had been hit by a car), and while mom was doing the intake info on them, another lady came in with 7 baby possums. So, between answering the phone, and doing the paperwork, there went her advantage in being there a little early. Mom checked with Jess, one of the rehabilitators, to see how she could help, because Jess looked very stressed out. Jess told her she needed to stimulate and weigh all the baby bunnies and she was the only person there who knew how to do that. Mom said not true, I can help! So she stimulated about 24 baby bunnies to help them urinate and defecate, then weighed each one of them and marked the charts. It saved Jess a ton of stress and time.
After that, mom cleaned the squirrel porch, and prepared 2 cages out there for babies from the mammal nursery who are ready to go outside and see the world, although they're not ready for release yet. When she finished that, she cleaned the small flight aviary, where Martha the great horned owl is raising a young one. The baby has grown quite big, and was clacking its beak at mom, just like an owl should do. Martha is a great foster mom.
They had scheduled mom to feed raccoons at noon, but it was already 10 after, the raccoons' milk was not even warm yet, and mom was tired, so she told Jess she was leaving.
It sure was a long and busy morning. Now she's back with us, and as soon as she's done with our blogs and a shower, she will work on her presentation for the docents tomorrow. She will be doing Egyptian and Hopi animals. She is including reptiles in this presentation, because both groups are/were desert dwellers, so there are lots of reptiles there. Also, in Egypt, she has to include the dung beetles! She's not sure it will last for 2 hours, though. That's fine with her, of course.
Today is a bright, sunny day, in the 60s so far, which is normal. I hope you are having a great day, getting sunshine, and lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo and Divo, mom loves you both, Willie, 8 votes to 20k!, Peppino, vote Laka for BOTM & Falco, vote Laka, 259145, BOTM.

Dad says that bowl was for mixing our Quadruple-Berry Muffins. We love those!

Hope you had a great weekend. Nice here -Dad was busy in and out, but we got some time together. Cool mornings but warm afternoons here. Dad never knows which jacket to grab.

Today I'm visiting Aunt Maria for my "Day of Beauty" aka wings and claws day.
Dad holds me without the towel [hate the towel], so it's not so bad.

Please say hi to Magali from my mom .... hola!
The wedding is in June and she is so far from being ready. She needs to get moving fast!!!!
This morning mom said I could make a phone call. I got to talk with Jenny's dad. He likes to hear me talk. After that, I had my shower on the lanai. The sun felt good. Then, my parronts went to St Armands Key this afternoon. I took a beauty nap and was ready to go when they came home.
Hugs

  Saturday Flitzer
Hello.
A nice week here in Buffalo - warmer, with a little rain. Now it's going to be cooler, but not too bad.
--
Dad is making preparations for his May trip to see Grandma in Kentucky. He will be there for Mother's Day and on Derby Day as well. [I'm suggesting a flowered hat, but he doesn't like the idea].
When Grandma calls on Sunday I call to her, sometimes making their conversation hard to hear.
"I'm here, Grandma, it's me, Flitzer". She often wonders how Dad can live with me. Ha-Ha.
--
Aunt Kathy, the bird-sitter will be checking in on me, while Dad is away.
Last time, we were both miserable to each other. Dad is asking me to PLEASE TRY and be good. We shall see...

  Hi Squeaky!
Hi Everybirdie! Tonight we are going to make little balls made out of toilet paper or paper towel rolls. You will need,

- A toilet paper or paper towel roll
- A treat

Take your roll, and cut four rings off of it. The rings can be what ever thickness you'd like, but we tend to cut ours a bit on the thick side. Start by taking two of the rings and sticking one inside of the other, so that it forms an X. Take a third ring, and slip it over the other two. Now you should add a treat. Finally, take the fourth ring and slip that over the others, and you're done!

These are super fun the play with. I love them! There is a picture in my gallery.

Thanks for voting for me!

Hugs,
Grey Bird

PS. Mom will get around to sending you the rest of the toy instructions this weekend!

  Hi Squeaks!
I will have my mom email your mom all of the previous toy instructions! (:

Hi Everybirdie! Tonight we are going to make a cute cupcake paper toy. It is pretty small, but super cute! You will need,

- 1 mini bagel
- Mini cupcake papers (we haven't tried it with regular sized cupcake papers, but if you want to try it so that it is slightly bigger, I'd say go for it!)
- Beads
- Safe stringing material
- A small chain (optional)

Take the mini bagel and a piece of string, and tie the piece of string on to the bagel. After you tie it on, you should have two pieces of string hanging down. String a bead on to one of the pieces of string, then take a few cupcake papers and string them on. Then another bead, then more cupcake papers. Do this until you reach your desired amount, and then tie a knot on the end. Repeat on the other side. To make it so that you can hang it, you can either take a short piece of chain and put it on the bagel and join the two ends with a quick link, or you can tie on a loop with you stringing material.

Mom hasn't made this toy in awhile, but she has made them for our previous budgies. We will see if Perry likes it. :) Picture in my gallery!

Thanks for voting for me!

Hugs,
Grey Bird

  Hi Squeaky
I love your hat! Thanks for liking mine my buddy Kaji picked it out for me.
I can't believe you and Pavarotti ignored your dad while your mom was gone. Not a surprise Picabo didn't he seems to be a daddy's boy. I will have to check out his basketball game. That's cool your mom brought home all those goodies for you guys.
Mom saw a picture of your mom holding a gator.
I did go to the milonga for a little bit it was fun .
I had a great time with you last night and loved those blueberry muffins.
Have you got to the kissing booth to pick out a frog yet? I did last night his name his Billy let's go there tonight. Have a good night.

Come visit me, Hulk vote Laka BOTM.

  Hi Squeaks
Oh yes, your mom better get her tail feathers over here and meet me in the feather! It was mom fun but way too short!
Our local bunny that we named Bunni comes in the evening and eats out grass .... very cute and kind of friendly. See the pic on my page.
Did you enter the hat contest? Voting starts tomorrow (04/21)

Today was a mom and me day. We did laundry together. Dad was golfing and then came home and worked on the pool. I heard that the parronts will be going to the beach soon. I'll stay home and nap. Or, maybe all of you can come over and we can have a pool party ... sound good?
Hugs
