I had been passed around from a lot of people and the day I saw my mom visit the house I was living at, I just flew over to her shoulder, snuggled in her hair and smiled. I was home!.

Hi! My name is Scion

I am a Bronze-Winged Pionus from Chuburna Puerto, Intl.

Zonie

16 years old   M

Bronze-Winged Pionus

green beans & cookies (mini vanilla wafers), any kind of nuts

I love my hanging toy in the living room ceiling; I get excited when I get to go outside on the porch in my cage

When napping sort of keeps one eye open to see what is going on.

I love how they tickle tickle my head and don't expect me to always be sitting with them. Mom is always there when I need tickle tickle or some cuddling.

Loves to fuss at his parronts if he doesn't like something. My mom says I look like a little old man when I walk around and fuss at everybody! I hate it when anyone carries anything big past my cage! I love to help dad feed the flock at breakfast time!.

Where's the food?.

  Hi ya Cuz~
I hope you are having a great day! Absolutely nothing of interest going on in my world but I did want to come by and say hello!
We have been doing more spring cleaning this week and it's really not very exciting at all!! Mom scrubbed the sliding glass door and the screen! It's so bright and pretty and I have an excellent view of the flags out in front of the complex! It's always windy around here so they are always flapping! They have red tulips on the flags and I enjoy watching them wave in the wind!
I hope you are all doing well! I hope there have been no more seizures! Do you suppose that hormone season has anything to do with it???
I hope you are enjoying your day and that window cleaning is not the most exciting thing going on in your life! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  Hello Cuz~
I hope you are having a great day! It's very pretty here! A real spring day!
Mom was off last night and she'll be off again on Friday. She couldn't get two days off in a row this week because there is too much work. It's clearance week plus they added a special weekend ad. The store is having it's Fuschia event this weekend so there will be special sales to go along with it. It's an annual event and everyone looks forward to it. They have geranium and fuschia starts for sale and if you bring your own pot the garden staff will plant them for you. Hanging baskets are a big thing up here so by next week you will be seeing them everywhere.
I have spent the morning trying to keep Merlin away from mom! He had his outside on the balcony time and play with the ribbon time but he is trying to butt into my climb on mom time! I told him he needs to go grab a nap until I'm ready for my apple and then he can jump up on the computer desk again!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's a spectacular day!

  Hello My Cousin~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! I just finished some toast with peanut butter while mom ate her ruby red grapefruit. She loves that stuff but I won't even try it. It looks weird to me!
We are getting stuff ready for mom to start her workweek tonight. She'll be working 7 days straight to get back to her usual schedule. No more weekend ads scheduled for a while so she can go back to her old schedule. She figures sometime near Easter there will be more but since she and the kids are going to see Captain America 2 next Thursday she won't be able to work Thursday night anyway.
I will be supervising some cooking in a bit and I am hoping for some birdie bread today. The dog needs more meat cooked and we need to have a few meals done since everyone is working different schedules for the rest of the week. I think the birdie bread should be the first thing we do!
I hope your day is just fantastic! Stomping out a vote and sending hugs your way!

I hope you are having a fabulous day! I am having a late start today. Mom gave a friend a ride home this morning and he lives in the middle of nowhere!! Really! The city he lives in is called Kapowsin. There are only about 300 people who live there. Lots of horese and cows and roads that are unpaved! Mom had to drive very slowly because there are tons of holes all along the roads! It's only half an hour away but it's a whole different world out there! I could scream and scream and no one would notice! Cool!hahahahahaha
Any news on the new website?
Enjoy your Sunday and I hope it's just spectacular!

  Hi Scion
I wasn't on the pirate adventure this year, as Giz and Sam were best friends so he took over for me. I went with Sugar and Ceasaur to help rescue wild birds, though. Thanks so much for remembering me. Mom still misses me, I know, so it's good to know that others remember me, too. Giz and I met here, and we are best buds now. Hugs and angel kisses, Divo

  Hi ya Cuz~
I hope you had a wonderful day! Happy Last day of winter! Spring will be here tomorrow even if the weather outside doesn't look like it. We had some really nice sun breaks today but some really big downpours also! The downpours seem to happen when mom had to take the dog out or go to the market! She seems to be a rain magnet!hahahaha
Mom was off last night and tonight too. She is usually off on Thursday and Friday nights but the store she works at is having a big sale for Friday and Saturday so mom has to be there on Thursday night to get it set up. On Friday she will be helping with freight since most of the freight crew will be off. They did inventory on Tuesday so the schedules got changed.
Mom got us a lovely white cake with spring sprinkles on it to celebrate the coming of spring! It was yummy and the cat even had a bit of it! He's not a normal cat you know!hehehehehe
Happy spring to you all and I hope it's a wonderful season for us all!

I hope you are having a great day! Spring has sprung up here. We have had a bit of rain but the temps have been near 60 and the cotton wood trees are bright pink and the frogs are delivering me joyous noise every single night! Now normally I don't really like hearing those hundreds of frogs but since they are announcing spring, I will put up with them!
Mom went out to the market for a while and she is going to hit the library soon. New books for Sugar! YAY!!! We will get some dinner done and then I hope we can have more popcorn and watch another movie.
You enjoy your evening! I hope it's just perfect!

V4U today. Thanks for flying by to wish me a Happy Hatchday. Mom's been super busy and is finally getting caught up with answering our flocks blogs. We had a few nice days of weather, now it's cold and damp again. Hoping the spring weather will be here soon. Have a good day. From, Dandy

  Hi ya Cuz~
I hope you are having a wonderful day. I'm getting some computer time this morning! It's been way to busy around here lately and I just don't like it!
Yesterday we took a break in the morning and watched Catching Fire. I really like it! Lots of action and you know I love action movies!
Today we are getting a bit of cooking done and getting mom ready to start her work week. She is going in an hour early tonight since I have been told we are losing an hour tonight! I really don't see any reason that the time has to change! It seems to be working just fine the way it is!
Mom went to Petco to get my Higgins Sunburst and they are out of it again! They say the warehouse is out of it so there is nothing they can do. She got me some Higgins Safflower Gold and it sort of looks and smells the same to me. There are no sunflower seeds in it but that is okay with me! It's only part of what I eat everyday so as long as she keeps a big supply of apples I will be a happy zon!
Spring is inching ever closer and that is making the frog outside my window go crazy! It started with just a few of them but last night it sounded like there were about a thousand of them out there! As long as they are here to announce spring I suppose I can put up with them!
I do hope you enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug as I waddle off!

  Hi Scion
I usually sit behind my mom's chair and watch the squirrels climbing up/down the trees outside. We have wild cats in the neighborhood so my mom does not take me out except when she washes my cage. It must be nice to stay outside very often.
I love your pirate pictures too, we look like buddies.

  HI ya Cuz~
I hope you are having a great day. It's cloudy up here and the rain will start soon but that is the way it is suppose to be this time of the year. We did have 2 really nice days so I can't complain about a little liquid sunshine!

I think spring it pretty close now because the pigeons outside have moved from the front to the eaves over our balcony. They do that in the spring. Mom will be cleaning poop off the balcony now but she would never complain. It's nice to hear them cooing out there and mom says they live here too! Some of the neighbors complained last year and they did the power washing up on their balconies to chase them away. I think that is why they came over here because we don't say a word about them being there! Mom is use to cleaning up poop!

We are doing some cooking today and then mom will get her stuff ready for her workweek to start tonight. I really think weekends are just too short.

Enjoy your day and I do hope it's a great one! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you are having a great day! We are having what we in the Northwest call a "Trick the Tourist" kind of day! It's a day where the sky is blue and there are just a few white puffy clouds. Not real warm but you can't tell what the temps are from a picture! The tourist board runs out and takes pictures down at the waterfront to get people to come visit Washington! They are in for a huge surprise when they get here and it's raining for 3 weeks straight!
OH! I love it! So sneaky!hehehehehehe
Mom found a really cool screensaver of an amazon! The background is green and there is a really handsome amazon peaking at me from the right bottom corner! I have named him Wilbur and he is my computer buddy! She had to go get a new screensaver after she reloaded the programs!
The computer is working well and mom found a virus program, downloaded it and is running it every day! I just hope this never happens again!! It sure did take mom a long time to figure it all out but hey! She did it! I must say that I'm impressed!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's an awesome one!

  Hi Scion
Thank you so much for your congrats on BOTD. I felt very loved by all the birdies on BC. We finally got a couple of Spring like warm days during the weekend. Now it is cold again, but I'm sure Spring is just around the corner, can't wait. I'm thinking to buy a harness for Lingo so I can take him outside while I'm in the garden, but afraid of the thought that he might accidentally fly away. Does Scion go outside with you?

I hope you are enjoying the day. Nothing much going on around here. I played with mom this morning and then growled when Merlin decided he wanted some play time too! Dad will be home this weekend but he's been gone 5 weeks so I don't think Merlin is going to forgive him anytime soon! You know how cats are! He figures that mom is the one around to play with him and feed him so he's become a Velcro kitty! At least he has gotten use to being fed with Mandy when mom gets up. The first few weeks he was waking mom up 2 hours early because he figured he needed to eat!
All the Easter stuff is up at mom's store and she enjoyed scanning it all. She said it cheered her up to see such pretty pastel colors and all the cute things they have for Easter. I think spring will be here before we know it!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's just perfect!

Thanks Scion for your detailed info regarding your diet.
I'm surprised that you have eggs and toast for breakfast every morning. But I think Lingo started to like more human food too. Yesterday I gave him boiled corn, cracker, and today I gave him some broccoli, he chewed them all into pieces, not sure how much he actualy ate. I'll give him some pellet food to see how he likes it.

I hope you are having a nice day. My rain stopped and there is sunshine outside my window!!! A bit of a surprise but it is a welcomed one.
I know spring can't be too far off! It's not because of my sunshine, it's because there are Cadbury chocolate eggs on all the check stands at the store mom works at!hahahahahahahaha Yep! Only 2 short months until Easter so spring had got to be close! Right??
We spent yesterday cleaning off the balcony because the building is going to be pressure washed. They do it every year and it is a pain but at least it stays nice and clean out there. They said it had to be done by 8am and since mom doesn't get home from work until 8am we did it yesterday! So far no one has showed up and it might be tomorrow before anyone does but at least we are ready.
It's very noisy when they do it so mom puts the radio on to cover up the noise. I like listening to the radio anyway and it helps a little. I will have to do some squawking anyway because I am the BIRD! Mandy doesn't hear well anymore so I don't know if she will notice or not. If she does, she will try to get to the nearest exit and get out of here!hahahahaha Merlin, being a cat, will just roll over and go back to sleep!
I hope you have the most wonderful day!! Leaving a vote and a big hug too!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! The snow we had last night did not amount to much at all. The grass and the bushes are still covered but I doubt it will last the day. The rain should be back tomorrow so it will feel more like winter in the Northwest.
Mom is off tonight which is a big deal because she rarely takes a Saturday night off! We are going to do some stuff around the house today and I am hoping for popcorn and a movie tonight! Right now we are going to straighten the pantry out because the skin kids put the groceries away and you can not find anything! The stuff for my mash is in there somewhere and mom needs to get it soaking so she can cook it tonight!
Do we have enough people signing up for the new website? I will mention it to every bird while I deliver my notes. I know a few who are already on board with the project but I would really love is every bird on here came on over!

  Hello Cuz~
I hope you had a wonderful day!
It's been an exciting day with the huge parade for the Seahawks. Mom let me sit on her shoulder while we watched it on the computer. It would have been fun to go but since there were a million people there and it's under 30 outside it was not a good idea for us! I still enjoyed seeing it on the computer!
It's funny how quiet the streets are around here! I guess most of the state went up there. There were 13 thousand kid's out of school just in Seattle so I know where they were! Hey! It's a history lesson of sorts!
Sorry about those renter using up all the GB! That was not very nice of them. It must be very hard to put up with renters especially the ones who don't follow the rules. They really should be more thoughtful of your family.
Thanks for the Hatchday wishes too! Can you believe I am 36 today! Wow! Time flies when you are having fun! It was a fun day and I really enjoyed myself. Mom has the next 4 nights off so I'll be enjoying myself even more!
Enjoy your evening and I do hope it's wonderful!

I hope you are having a fantastic day! It's very cold here and we have snow flurries but nothing that is going to stick. It's going to be cold for the next few days but after seeing the East Coast and the Midwest, I can not complain! Mom will be off for 4 days so we'll just hang out in front of the fireplace!
I am sorry I didn't get around much yesterday but the internet went out. Don't know why and it's fine today. Maybe all those Comcast people were out celebrating the Seahawks win!hehehhehehe
I put a picture of Taima in my profile. He's the real Seahawk. Actually he is a Augur hawk because there isn't really a seahawk. He is very beautiful but I don't think I'd want to see him up close and birdsonal!
There is going to be a parade in Seattle tomorrow to celebrate the Seahawks victory. It's the very first time we have ever won the Super Bowl so I know most of the west side of the state is going to be there!
It must be bittersweet for Squeaky to see Captain Morgan in the spotlight box today! I sure do miss them! Macalune was one of my best friends but unfortunately this is what happens when the humans get that thing called divorce. It's how I ended up in the pet shop where mom's sister found me so I guess it worked out okay for me! I'm sure they are all fine only I do know that the flock was split up. Bummer!

I didn't eat anything the whole time I was at Nana's,my foot is all balled up again and I finally stopped throwing up!It was all so surreal,the huge long rifles,watching the cops pull the kid from the house,he was 17 years old and had robbed the blind and curtain shop on the main road,they tracked him down by his cell phone!Mom and I felt like we were in the movies or one of those shows on tv where they're always shooting guns!It was just awful and Mom doesn't want to go through that ever again!

Mom and I were on our way to Nana's house and Mom had her signal on to turn into her street,but there was a police SUV blocking off the road and he kept waving Mom on!Now its very hard to find Nana's street through the back which is several more side streets down.We'll after getting lost,the side streets back there weren't plowed and all of them were very hilly,Mom tried to find her way up one of those side streets and nearly crashed into a tree as it was very slippery so she backed out of there and continued on her way on the road she was on!She finally made it to Nana's street and before she got there,a policeman came flying up behind her lights flashing and all,Mom thought that he was after her so she pulled to the side,he flew past her,and as Mom got closer there were 20 or so police cars,undercover cops,the Sheriffs vehicle,Mom stopped behind the last police car and told the policeman that she was trying to get to Nana's house and he told her to go back,she couldn't get through,then as Mom sat there with no where to go,the cop opened his trunk and pulled out the longest rifle you ever saw and all the other cops had rifles and guns and just like in the movies leaning over their cars and pointing the guns at this house and shooting the guns,pop,pop,pop,pop,pop,pop,Mom thought there was something wrong with her car,she's never heard real rifles go off before it didn't sound like the ones on tv,Mom had called Nana and told her she couldn't get to her house,Nana said wait I'm walking down to you,so Mom waited for what like seemed hours but Nana wasn't allowed to come to where Mom was,she was made to go home,so after waiting for over a half hour in the car with me,Mom called Nana again and she told Mom to meet her on the main road,so Mom somehow found her way out of that confusing development and got to the main road and met Nana on the main road,(she lives off a main thoroughfare,and the cop that was blocking that entrance to Nana's street told her to take me to the vet as Nana told him that Mom had a sick bird in the car,Nana said that she had to call the vet first,well,he helped stop traffic so Nana could cross the street and get in Mom's car,Nana wasn't allowed to go back to her house,even walking she couldn't!Mom drove us down to the Church and we waited there,I was really sick,I pooped all over Mom's pants and my blanket and when we got to the church I began to throw up!My foot was all balled up and while Mom was waiting for me I got very faint,Mom was so scared!Nana held me and talked to me while Mom called skin bro to tell him that he couldn't get to Nana's and he already knew he was trying the same thing Mom did going in the back way and getting denied!He met Mom and Nana at the Church and waited there with us,Nana holding me the whole time and trying to keep me warm,the church was getting cold.Skin bro finally called the car repair shop which is near the end of

I sooo agree with you,I just love chatting with you and Squeaky soo much and treasure you more than you can know! Mom took your advice and made the tent on her bed and I just crawled inside and wanted to stay there and not wanting to leave!Oh how right you are about how good my feet and legs feel not having to sit on something so hard and round!And the softness of the quilt is so warming and easy on my feet!Mom and I just can't help but thank you and your wonderful sweet Momma for all the help about the GABA powder! Mom is going to order me some tomorrow when she gets home,hopefully with my new thermal perch!She just can't wait to try that on me and see if I can have my beak dremmeled without going into seizures!Please wish your sweet daddy a very happy birthday for all of us here!Its so good that he got his game of golf in before all the bad weather hit!It sure sounds like your parronts had a nice celebration party for him with a movie and wings for lunch!How awful to have such rude renters and such noisy ones at that!We had some renters in the house next door and they always played their loud weird music and left trash out in the front yard so we kept getting rats and the landlord wouldn't listen to Mom when she kept calling,we sure know what you were going through and are so glad for you that they are gone now!Please give sweet Squeaks my love and a big GCC hug!She like you are soo special to me!Those baby lovies sure do have an appetite and a death grip on you with their beaks!I can't believe how eggspensive parrots are there!Oh My word!nearly $10,000 for a macaw,and Lovies for a hundred and sunnies for $1500 and up!It sure sounds like us parrots are like gold there!You have to have papers in order for your sweet Mom and Dad to keep you?That sure is incredible!Those lovies sure can be pests for sure and bug you and make you crazy!I do hope that you can take a nice peaceful nap and those lovies will leave you alone and not get inside your cage!We love you all sooo much,your whole flock and family and of course your sweet wonderful Momma too!

  Hi Scion
V4U today. Did I hear you mention parsley cookies? Today would be a good day to bake a batch of them it's so cold here! LOL :) Thanks for flying by and congratulating me for winning BOTD. Well, all I can say is that the BOTD crown may look very pretty on me, but I can't wait to get back in my pirate hat and sail the seven seas. I am ready to fly the coop from this ice box called Tennessee. LOL :) Have a good day. From, Marigold

  Hi Scion
My Mom is so inspired by what your sweet Momma has done for you and she's going to try and make my corner perch all cozy and covered with soft material so I can sit on it too!She'll see how she does with making that and then she'll try and attempt to make the tent part of it!She went out yesterday after the snow stopped(we got 7 more inches)and took my thermal perch back as it stopped working and was ice cold,the pet store told her that they would call her on Friday to let her know if she could get another one in exchange for the one she brought back.I just can't thank you enough for all the info on the GABA powder,Mom has been trying to get that for me now for over a year!Mom and I send you lots of hugs and kisses for helping us out so we can actually get some!The vets don't want to give me any or even tell us how to get it!You are so amazing and we all love you!Thank you soooo much!Oh those lovebird babies are never ending!Mom used to raise them and she had one breeding pair,Ralph and Alice,and as soon as the last egg was in the nest there would be another clutch in the nest the next day started!She had so many babies she couldn't keep up with them all,and you couldn't hear the tv,or anyone who called on the phone,it was so loud!They are so cute to watch form and grow from the egg into the little pink ET's to when they get their feathers!Mom raised both Keets and Lovies together so you can imagine what a mess and the loudness of the house with them all there!Mom would pull her babies at two weeks to hand feed them,it helps with taming the Lovies as they are quite nippy and can bite to really make you bleed,even the babies do too!I think that's a great idea for your sweet Momma to steal the babies to hand feed them!My Mom was feeding them every 2 hours till they got older,between the Keets and the Lovies,(she had over 50 babies at one time)she was a zombie and she had my skin bro who was a baby at the time also so that time in her life she never got any sleep at all!She couldn't see herself doing that today,that's for sure,my dad keeps her sleepless with all this snow!We got 7 more inches of snow yesterday and it made Mom late going out to run her errands as she had to wait for the snow to stop around 10am.Its really cold here a warm 19 degrees!Thank you again for the info on the GABA powder,and Mom will figure out from what you take to what I should be getting!Hi! Squeaks! How are you doing? I can be warm now because of you and Scion! I love you both soooo much! You get some sleep now and I'll be talking to you again! I'm so glad we met!I love you all!Give your sweet Momma a warm hug from my Mom and give Squeaks a big GCC hug from me and I give you all my love also!Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses! Loving you always and forever,Dixie

  Hi Scion
I'm soo glad to meet you,and you have such a precious fister in Squeaky! I so love her dearly and am so blessed to have her in my life and now I'm soo happy to have,met you also! What a fantastic,warm and loving Mom and Daddy you have to do all those nice things for you! Mom and I have read just what you have been describing to me and my Mom is going to try and make one of those shelves,she has some nice soft material she can try and cut out,I do love to snuggle under a tent like structure and that sounds just what I could use! She gave me a wide board to sit on in my cage and I just ignored it completely and when she put me on it I promptly got myself off it!And we just found out that my thermal perch isn't working anymore,no heat coming from it at all,so Mom has to see if she can take that back and get a new one.We haven't had it for long!I don't blame you for not wanting a bright pink cave in your cage,being a guy and all!That's like everyone calls me a she when I'm a he!Just because Mom thought I was a girl for the first 6 years of my life and dad gave me that name!Mom has asked my vet for GABA powder but she tells Mom she hasn't heard of that helping with seizures and Mom doesn't believe her,if it is helping you it most certainly will help me! I just can't thank you for giving me all this information! You just don't know how much I appreciate it as the vets here aren't very helpful and told Mom last December that since I had gout,between the meds I was to take,(Mom took me off them entirely) and my gout I wouldn't be here past three months time,well,its been a year since then and here I am!Mom's giving me cherry juice for my pain and massaging me for an hour or more every night and keeping me warm as she can and doing lots of snuggling with me as soon as the chores are done for the day! Mom and I just can't thank you for all you are helping me with!You just don't know how much it means to us and me especially!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs! Loving you always!Dixie
Ps Please give Squeaks a big hug and a kiss for me and tell her I'm thinking of her always!

  Hi ya Cuz~
I hope your day is going well! I hope that visiting cat has gone home and stayed home! That kind of cat should not be allowed out at all! They may be considered domestic animals but like us they are still wild animals. I hope it went home and that the guy keeps him home. They cost a bundle so you would think he would be more vigilant about where they are!!
Any news on the website? It sounds very exciting to us. We don't think the cost is all that much either. Dad and his friend have a website and it is 20$ a month for that one.
Dad left yesterday morning and the cat is having a really hard time understanding that he is going to be gone for a while. Mandy and I have been through this before but it's all new to Merlin. Mom keeps having to take him around to show him that dad is not hiding somewhere. After she showed him this morning he went and had his breakfast and then played for a while. He is off taking a nap now.
Dad will be driving cross country again. He has done it lots of time so it should be okay. Mom thinks it would be fun to see new places but she would have to be able to have me with her because she would be so lonely without me! I sure would be lonely without her too!
I hope you all have a wonderful day. I hope you haven't had any seizures either. I always keep you in my prayers everyday!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar

  Hi ya Cuz~
I hope all is well with you, the parronts and the flock! I made sure mom got over here today because I just miss you so much!!!!!
The computer is still running like garbage and mom doesn't have a lot of time to read up on how to fix it. It will take some time but eventually we'll get it running faster. Skin brother said he would help out too. They are both working and have to fit things in around their work schedule!
After 3 years, dad got a job! He's back to driving and found a company where he doesn't have to do any heavy lifting. After he damaged his shoulder 3 years ago he went through all kinds of physical therapy but they said since it he had damaged it before and because of his age, it was as good as it was going to get. They opted out for the surgery because the surgeon said it really wouldn't improve the movement. He seems to be happy to be back on the road. Mom dropped him off at 7am this morning so he's of and running!
The cat doesn't realize that he is not coming home tonight. I think Merlin is going to be pretty depressed. Mom had been having playtime with him when I go in my play cage for my apple in the morning. Dad had orientation for 3 days but he was home by 5pm so Merlin got use to it! Tonight he will probably be in bugging mom while she is sleeping because dad won't be here! I'm being nice to him right now because I know how I would feel if it was mom that was gone for a while!
Mom is starting Spring cleaning early. She had to go though the linen closet to find dad's sheets and his comforter so she figured we might as well start getting things cleaned up around here. She is off for 4 days starting on the 5th of February so we will devote more time to getting the computer running!
I hope everything is wonderful down there! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar
