One day I went to visit the bird store where I usually bought Skittles toys and saw Pico. I wasn't there to find a bird, just to get my "bird fix" since I lost Skittles. Anyway, he caught my attention, so I did what anyone would've done and asked if I could see him out of his cage. He was so sweet & full of kisses that something just tugged at my heart. I knew then I was ready for another bird ~ What a way to celebrate July 4th!

Yogurt Dips is one of my favorites! Another favorite is Nutriberries. My favorite fruit is black berries. My favorite veggies is corn & carrots. Another big favorite is a chicken wing bone. And, I also love the Golden Feast! That's yummy! What can I say.. I love to eat!!

My favorite hang out spot is with my mom whether it be on her shoulder or on top of her head! Next would be on my playground which is also fun.

Having to stay on on my playtop. ...would rather run around on the floor!

I love her because I know she loves me. She's always kissing on me, talking to me, & buying me new toys. She also lets me preen her hair!

Mom tells me I'm the messiest eater she's ever seen! I get food all over my beak, feet, and even my tummy sometimes. Another quirky & bad habit is that I climb down my cage & walk around like I own the place..

  HI PICO
A bill under consideration in the Senate puts a target squarely on the back of some of our nation's most iconic species like polar bears and bald eagles.Tell your Senators to oppose the anti-wildlife "Sportsmen's Act of 2015" and to reject any similar bills.The so-called "Bipartisan Sportsmen's Act of 2015" is laden with anti-wildlife provisions. Among them:

Preventing the Environmental Protection Agency from (EPA) addressing lead contamination through ammunition. Millions of birds die avery year from lead poisoning. Eagle, condors, hawks, owls, and at least 70 other wild bird species are poisoned by spent lead ammunition. This bill would prohibit the EPA from enforcing the Toxic Substances Act to remove lead from bullets and fishing equipment--as the country has with toys, paint, and gasoline.

Allowing the import of 41 sport-hunted polar bear "trophies" from Canada. Polar bears are protected as threatened under the Endangered Species Act and the trade and import of their parts violates federal law. Giving an exemption to the trophy hunters that killed these bears would put polar bears--and other imperiled species--at risk.

Requiring federal agencies to open up millions of acres of public lands to hunting and trapping. This provision could wreak havoc on endangered and threatened species like wolves, grizzly bears, and wolverines. Giving the green light to yet more indiscriminate trapping would put native species of all kinds at untold risk.

Directing land managers to build or expand shooting ranges on public lands. Outdoor shooting ranges have been found to be major sources of environmental lead contamination. Just last month, the state of Wisconsin ordered a shooting range operator on the Lake Michigan shoreline to ban lead shot at their facility due to environmental impact. More ranges will mean more lead, all while the Senate handcuffs the EPA's ability to curtail lead in bullets. California condors, eagles, and other imperiled birds and scavengers will be exposed to greater levels of toxic lead under this plan.

This is the third consecutive year that this bill has been brought to the Senate for consideration. It has failed each previous attempt, and with your help it will fail again. Please email your Senators today and ask that they oppose this dangerous legislation.

How Do Birds Survive Winter Storms?
It’s cold out.. where do birds go for protection during severe weather such as blizzards, hurricanes, and tornadoes?

Many birds have an amazing ability to find refuge from storms and use a variety of ways to cope, depending on the species and the bird’s natural habitat.Some find protection against the cold and storms by communal roosting, often in a bird house. This shares warmth, and keeps the birds out of the wind, rain and snow. cavity nesters, such as chickadees, titmice and woodpeckers, also seek out old nesting sites in dead trees or bird houses in which to roost or find protection during a storm. Nuthatches, which sometimes nest behind a loose piece of tree bark, may seek the same kind of shelter against the cold.Flocks of Rosy finches often roost in an outcropping of rock where they can get out of the cold wind.Bobwhite make a circle of the covey, huddled side-by-side, with head facing out. This allows them to share body heat, while being ready to escape in all directions, should they be attacked.Ruffed grouse take a different tactic. They dive into a snow bank, and may stay there for several days until the storm passes. The Ruffed grouse has the largest range of any grouse species in North America and winter hikers have been surprised by a startled grouse bursting from the snow at their feet.Many other birds retreat to dense, evergreen thickets where they are protected from the elements for the duration of the storm.

  Hi Pico
Hello BC commando's, Amando here on this final day in the Brazilian Rainforest. We we took a bite out-of-crime, Sugar and Dory watched baby Armando. He was very restless and alert as he listened to the screams and calls of the angry birds. Suddenly he hears a familiar call echoing over the treetops. He replies happily. The calls continue as baby Armando replies over and over again. Captain Finny appears over the edge of the clearing, and there, following close behind are two beautiful adult Blue-fronted Amazons. The three land close to Sugar. Baby Armando stands up as tall as his tiny legs will allow him to and chirps non-stop. A lovely Zon moves closer, chirping softly in reply. The baby gets even more eggcited.
JL and Amando whistle in loud short Zon calls and the attack comes to an end. The birds leave their prisoners lying entangled in the nets and rejoin them near to baby Armando and the two wild Parrots. The wild Zon reaches forward to touch the baby gently, not certain if it is their chick after so long. The baby responds with happy chirps of happiness, "Momma? Poppa? it is me baby Armando."
The two Parrots grin happily and snuggle their stolen offspring to them. "How do we ever thank-you for saving our baby, and freeing our flockmates from the cages those evil poachers had them imprisoned in? Our flock was once very large over 80 adults but the poachers come again and again stealing them away, taking our chicks from our homes. They cut down our nest tree and stole Armando and our two other babies. We now have no home to take Armando to."
Gus speaks up happily, " we have a nest for you. BB built it to trap the poachers but we didn't have to use it. It is solid, and warm and we will put it high into a tree were you and your family will be safe."
The BC Commandos cheer as they watch baby Armando with his Momma and Poppa. The family is so happy to be together once more. "Sadly this is not the true outcome of poaching. Humans can help stop this awful trade in wild-caught Parrots by becoming our voice in the World. By NEVER buying Parrots without bands or documents showing where they originated from. Remember that many wild Parrots are sent to Europe to be shipped back into the USA. Encourage Eco-tourism as an alternative to poaching. HELP US STOP THE UNNECESSARY TRAPPING OF WILD PARROTS THROUGH OUT THE WORLD!"
Remember Paoo, what he suffered because of human greed, and also remember that many former poachers now fight on the other side of the law because of their intimate knowledge of the area and of bird habits, these poachers-turned-rangers are undeniably the most able bird conservationists available.

  Hi Pico
Amando here, shhhhhh! We are just preparing to wage an all-out attack on five poachers int he Rainforest of Brazil. Make sure you have your camo hat on, and let's await JL's order to move in!
The Green Angels and Finny have found Armando's Momma and Daddy!! But have warned them that it's not safe to reunite them until we get those poachers. So even though they are very anxious to get their little Armando back, they've agreed to wait and help us. They're up there with the Green Angels and Finny right now in the tree tops tending the nets, ready to cut them down at a moments notice. Their awaiting the signal, but they're really geeked!
Jenny-Lynn and Amando stand on fallen tree limbs, Sky is perched in the tree near to the trap nest box. The Special Forces are standing, beaks ready at the net ropes. Zippy has already begun working on a rope that holds a large webbed net. Suddenly JL and Amando let out a shrill Zon whistle, the signal to begin their attack. The birds begin to chew and tear at the ropes holding the nets in place.
"WE ARE READY TO TAKE DOWN THEM POACHERS AND TEACH THEM A HARD LESSON" Sweetpepper whispers to Kiddo.
With wave of her wing JL leads the BC troops into battle, "we will do what we came here to do, and by the way you have all come together, we shall be invincible!" moving ahead she exclaims, " WE SHALL LEAD FROM THE FRONT! No more stolen parrots, no more needless suffering, are ya with me gang!" Then loudly so the startled poachers hear," Poachers, this is not your day, on this day you pay for your cruelty.'
The startled poachers turn every-which-way trying to see who has spoken. Then out of the jungle, from the sky above come the birds, screaming in anger as they swoop in for the attack. JL and Amando see the Blue-fronts crammed into wire cages and their hatred boils over. Cappy attacks the ring-leader without mercy, biting his hand hard and refusing to let go. The Special forces have the nets freed and as the five cowardly criminals try to run, the net falls entrapping them like they the innocent Parrots they have caught in the past. The air is filled with screams of outrage as the wild Blue-fronts arrive to help. The men scream in fear as bird after bird attacks, biting or pooping on them as they struggle to get free of the nets.
BonBon and Parker are gone to get the jaguars! The cats are very eggsited to help get the poachers! Their kind is also being poached for their fur! The angry jungle cats growl fiercely as they see the poachers flailing in the nets they'd set to trap Parrots. The poachers cry for help, like the Parrots they've captured but no one can hear them. Falco and Jesse free the trapped Zons from their prison, only one is injured from this group. They join in the assault on their enemies.

  Hi Pico
Hello to all my Amazon Adventurers, Amando here with an update on events as they unfold in the Tropical Rain forest. Some of asked about those blue-fronted Amazons in the cages in my gallery. That is where our Armandos family will end up if we do not stop those poachers from trapping them for the PET TRADE. I have no doubts we will put a stop to their plans.
BonBon, Boo Boo, Pepper, Angel, Chyna, Polly, Zippy, LA and Dixie sneak off through the undergrowth to get a better look at what the poachers have been working on. Being very careful and quiet they work slowly towards the opening where the Green Angels have observed their enemies devilish work. Taking note of the area, the nets and where each poacher waits, hidden in the trees for the unsuspecting Blue-Fronted Amazon flock to arrive at their feeding grounds. Returning to the others they explain in detail the whole scene. After listen quietly, Cappy's anger grows to a frenzy of temper, "Today would be an eggcellent day to kick some poacher tail feathers." Cappy ruffles his feathers in anticipation and the look in his eyes would scare anybody.
Kaji grins,"Gotta say, Lizzie is so ready to torch those guys if you want her to. More than happy! She could do a slow roast, good fire power control." Lizzie smiles sweetly and puffs a small flame from her mouth to emphasize Kaji's point.
Ipo is more then ready for battle against the poachers. Ipo whips out her sword. "This is getting too much!!" She gets ready to fly when she feels Sophie's wing on her shoulder "this isn't your time, Ipo. We must await the other rescuers. Your turn will come soon. Now put that away." Jenny and Amando consult together with Sky, Cappy and Kaji, then standing on a rock JL clears her voice and begins to outline the plan for attack. "we will sneak up on them. The Special Forces will tend to the nets, cutting them down from the trees. Silver, you and Chuey are in charge of rope chewing, pick helpers and remove every rope you see. The rest of us will wait for the nets to drop and begin our attack. We are going to bite, scratch, chase, net, warm-up ( she grins at Lizzie) those poachers like they have never dreamed possible."
The birds cheer and high 4 one another, "Then we will return Armando to his flock safe and sound. We have to deal with these thieves first. This poaching happens everyday around the world. Innocent Parrots are stolen from nests, their flocks, many die, many suffer untold abuse and neglect just so people can get "cheap" Parrots. ENOUGH!" AMANDO YELLS.
Sky grabs BB's nest box and carries it under his wing as the BC Commando troops move into position. With the help of Elvis, Willie, Oz and Chyna they get the trap high in one of the trees.
"OK TROOPS Let's go get us some poachers" JL calls with determination as they move as one and begin their plot to stop their unsuspecting enemies.

  Hi Pico
Amando here with today's Amazon Adventure update. We have located the flock of wild Blue-Fronted Zons who had been attacked by the same group of poachers earlier this year raiding countless nests for babies. The poachers have been secretly laying nets to trap Armando's flock at their daily feeding grounds just ahead of us. We must move with extreme caution and be on the ready from here on.
Capt. Finny, Chuey, Kallie and Pearl return to the group for a quick briefing. "Since spotting baby Armando's flock, the Green Angels and I have been flying from tree to tree trying to locate his Momma. At the same time we are warning all 38 blue-fronted Amazons of the danger lurking beneath them. We are warning them to stay as high in the tree canopy as possible since the poachers cannot get too high where the branches turn into twigs, and watch out for nets. We told them that we have an entire company of parrots coming to their aid and told them to stay hidden until they hear JL's command to attack. Then they can join in the fun of ripping those poachers to bits and wrapping them in the very nets they had intended for the birds. In the mean time we'll continue our search for his Momma. Only 11 more trees to go..." off they fly to continue their search.
Kiddo whispers to Susan and Polly, " Nothing makes me madder then poachers, and they are just lucky my mom isn't here.."
Kaji tells Amando his idea, "We gotta get to the flock before the poachers do. I still say Lizzie could torch the dirty jerks, no problem. I bet she would scare the living you know what out of those evil people." Amando laughs at the thought.
Sweetpepper plays with baby Armando, she tells Sugar and Dory" It's very sad that 17 babies died. We will give baby Armando back to his parronts and save them from those rotten poachers." Sugar smiles but the anger in her eyes tells it all.
Cori and Boo Boo sigh, we have an idea, "we say lets get rid of these poachers once and for all. ,hey are only doing it because they need money. lets show them something they can do that doesn't harm anything and makes them lots of money, turning their poo into bio fuel." Sky can't help but grin at that thought. Jenny-Lynn nods her head in agreement then suddenly raises her wing for the group to halt, making the "be quiet" sign at the same time. Leaning close to Amando's ear she says, "your plans for Armando's return is a good one, we certainly have the parrot power to succeed! I almost feel sorry for those poacher folks! Somebody will have to hold Cappy back, I think that dude can get violent, LOL!"
They watch Cappy sharpening his beak. Cappy speaks up," if there are 5 poachers then I suggest a two fold trap ... the net and also a deadfall ... a hidden box with a fake nest and bird to attract them poachers in and as soon as they reach for it ...baaam ... the box slams shut ... effectively trapping them and making them vulnerable to our attack. What do you think ."

  Hi Pico
Hello Birdie Commandos, Amando here in the sunny Brazilian Rain Forest. We are on our way to intercept baby Armando's flock and reunite him with his Momma. We have been made aware of poacher activities in the clearing up ahead at a frequently used feeding grounds. As we begin our trek across the dense jungle of south America our goal is to stop the poachers and take a BIG bite out of the illegal Parrot trade once and for all. Amando, Jenny-Lynn and Sky move out ahead of the others using their machetes to cut through the vines and growth making a path for the others to follow. " Those paochers are gonna be sorry they messed with us!" JL comments with an angry Zon growl. Calling a halt, the group stops for a brief rest beside a cool stream.
Cappy quickly sharpens his beak and talons before the group heads off again. He wants to make sure he is able to rip and shred flesh easily. Dory and Dixie hang back with little Armando and Dixie quietly plays peek-a-boo with him to take his mind off what's going on. Rudy ... is looking for something to eat again. Finding some avi-cakes to munch on.
"We need to make a plan to catch them cold-handed, and teach them a lesson they won't forget." Jenny comments to the others.
"If we lay the net on the ground and cover it with leaves, maybe they'll get caught and tangled and trip over themselves !" Cookie exclaims determination on his face
"A note to the poachers; "I know who you are, and what you do I shall never forgive you for, ever, YOU BELONG TO ME! My name is Jenny Lynn, and this is the same jungle my mom and dad grew up in, you are dead meat, GAME ON! " She gets an angry look in her eyes as see thinks of all the birds who have lived and died at the hands of poachers, of the thousands, upon thousands who have been stolen away from their homes, families and flocks, of Paoo who was mutilated for the enjoyment of humans to see. THIS IS WAR. We must fight hard, and we must never given in." she yells loudly and is joined by the cheers of agreement from all the others.
Amando climbs up onto a fallen limb, " Our greatest challenge lies before us. Captain Finny and the Green Angels have been doing reconnaissance and have brought back confirmation that there are 5 poachers ahead to the south west. Also they have located the flock from which baby Armando was stolen. There are approximately 38 Blue-fronted Amazons living and nesting not four miles from here. It appears that the same group of thieves raided the nests of fourteen nesting pairs this year taking all but two youngsters from their homes. Three adults were severely injured while attempting to defend their nests from intruders. Very fortunately no adults were killed at that time, but the mortality rate among the stolen chicks was high, out of thirty-three chicks, seventeen died en-route to the village from chilling, dehydration and crowding. We believe baby Armando is one of the survivors of that nest raid."

  Hi Pico
Hello fellow Amazon Adventurers, Amando here with a rather "fishy" situation. After scaring the Hippos away with a Cappy scream and landing safely down River, we soon made the discovery that that the Amazon is home to some pretty "fishy" characters. Red-bellied Piranhas.
Cappy shudders when he sees the bucket and the churning water ..." I think it best to stay away from that water ... Thank goodness those things can't come on shore ... just look at how fast they ate through the bucket ... Faster than I could have ... whew."
The others back away from the water as Jenny-Lynn eyes the chewed bucket, then leans over to look at the fish. "could I get one of those Piranhas with tartar sauce and lettuce, LOL! "
Just as the birds had settled for lunch Capt. Finny flew in at a swift speed, between breathes he related the outcome of the Green Angel's search of the area. "Kacey and Kallie sent Chuey to tell Chipper and I to get up the river fast! Pearl and Silver have been on the look-out with them to see what kind of suspicious activity is going on. We're getting pretty near where we could be spotting Armando's Momma and flock anytime now. So we wanted to be really careful. You're not going to believe this, but we saw more poachers! And this time they were really operating undercover, spreading nets. I think they may be after Armando's flock! You've got to get up here fast with JL and the gang, but be sure you keep little Armando out of sight. We've come so far and we're so close now, but this is going to be dangerous."
Amando looks at Jenny-Lynn and Sky, then at all his friends. He goes to Sugar and leans over to whisper into Armando's ear, " you're almost home little buddy. We're not going to stop now. Soon you will be back with your Momma" he kisses him softly on the head and sadly smiles at Sugar.
Turning to the others he says, " Finny and the Green Angels have found poachers ahead. Armando's flock is in danger. We are BC Commando Birds and we will not give-up, back-down or retreat. Who is with me?"
With one voice the cheer fills the Rainforest opening where the group stopped for lunch. "We will not be defeated. Together we shall win the war over poaching!" Amando's heart filled with hope and courage as he returned to Jenny-Lynn and Sky. Sitting on an old log, the three discuss with Finny the area ahead, the location of the poachers and make their plan of attack. Little Armando must be returned to his flock. Jenny looks at the drawing of the area and frowns. The nesting site for Armand's flock is close by. "I have no doubt that they are indeed after Armando's flock. " Jenny growls angrily, and glares off into the jungle growth.
"OK Birdie Commando's let's move out. It's war. This time it is no-holds-barred" Amando yells.
Sugar and Dory get Armando ready for the cross jungle trek. With Guards, Taz, Spot, Gus, Cori, Sweetpepper, Kiddo and Pookie in closed formation around Armando they begin to move out.

Hello everybirdie. Amando here with today's Adventure update. After a frightful emergency with my fister Sweetie and her Pet Store toy, we are back on our trip to return Armando to his Momma and flock. With the Hippos awake things got pretty nasty for poor Cappy and his boat load of Amazon Adventurers. Hippos are not native to South America but were relocated here by someone then left to fend on their own when their owner was killed by authorities. The warmth, abundant water and plant life are perfect habitat for the displaced African natives. A large male awoke by the passing boat lets out a loud roar of annoyance that rouses the others from their afternoon rest. He runs forward, his strong legs moving easily across the river bottom. The others in his pod follow, heading towards the longboat.
Cappy sees the angry hippo coming and let's out a huge Cockatoo SCREAM, crest up, feathers fluffed. The male Hippo comes to a screeching stop and stares in wonder at the large white bird standing on the helm of the longboat. The others stop behind him, not certain what to do. The leader roars again and steps forward. Cappy screams again, this time he is joined by the other BC friends. The sound is deafening as it echos across the water. The Hippos having never seen or heard a Cockatoo before stare for a moment longer then turn on their heels and head back towards the distant shoreline. Cappy screams once more for a final warning, before smiling happily at his friends in the boat. "You just don't mess with a TOO!" he says, grabbing his oar. "OK, let's paddle out of here."
The other boats pass by undisturbed as the hippos keep a nervous watch from the banks. The group sails past Manaus, before BB calls to them to head for shore for lunch. Dixie and Little Angel were so comforted to be in the boat with Cappy as their guard,he sure did scare those hippos fast! They wouldn't want to mess around with that strong big beak.
BB opens her travel bag & gets out the portable kitchen. Out of the storage bins she gets corn on the cob, veggie Kabobs,Soy burgers and Spam hot dogs. Little Bits Best root beer is in the coolers along with Cream & Ginger Ale sodas.
"I am going to call in the supply shuttle for more food. Any birdie have a request for food??" she asks looking at Sky, " yes Pickles, I won't forget. Sky could you and Jesse go bring some water from the river please?"
Sky grabs two buckets as he and Jesse wander back down to the River where the others are playing a game of beach volleyball. Bending over, sky dips the bucket into the river and suddenly the water begins to turn and bubble. Startled Sky yanks the bucket out. "WHAT ???" he yells looking at it. The whole bottom was gone, eaten away. "Stay out of the water, Piranhas!"
Everybirdie stops dead and stares at the bucket, and the River.
"So many dangers to be wary of" Kaji sighs

  Hi Pico
Hello Adventurers. As we draw close to Manuas, Brazil, we must be watchful for both human threats and the ever present threat from wildlife both on land and aquatic. Although the Hippo is an African animal, there are now over 50 individuals and counting living happily along the Amazon and other South American Rivers. In the late 1980s, Pablo Escobar kept four hippos in a private menagerie at his residence in Hacienda Nápoles, 100 km east of Medellín, Colombia, after buying them in New Orleans. They were deemed too difficult to seize and move after Escobar's fall, and hence left on the untended estate. By 2007, the animals had multiplied to 16 and had taken to roaming the area for food in the nearby Magdalena River. In 2009, two adults and one calf escaped the herd and, after attacking humans and killing cattle, one of the adults (called "Pepe") was killed by hunters under authorization of the local authorities. As of early 2014, 50 hippos have been reported to exist on the Amazon and it's tributaries.
With Mick Dundee departure after enjoying BB's lunch, the birds begin to wonder how they would get past the Hippos ahead in the River. Amando, Jenny-Lynn and Sky sit close, deep in discussion trying to figure out the safest way past the upcoming danger.
"I think we simply paddle by, staying as far away from them as we can. If we take one boat past at a time it shouldn't disturb them overly" Jenny-Lynn adds, worry on her face
"But if they do attack the boat and it is alone we might not be able to get there in time to help them." Sky adds
"I think we stay close together." Amando replies after some thought, " we paddle as little as we have to, let the river move us by"
"It might be best if we separate and place guards in each boat while passing the hippo pod." Jenny-Lynn directs
Sky and Amando agree, and set about moving guard birds into each boat. The nervous Adventures load their boats, and pushing off from shore, slowly paddle towards possible danger lurking the the River ahead. Finny and Chipper had reported back that the hippos were resting near the west bank of the river in shallow water. The birds move their boats towards the eastern shore, paddling carefully, ever watchful for danger. Rounding a sharp curve in the River near Manuas, JL in the lead boat with Sugar, Cookie, Raffi, Peepers, Laka, Strawberry and RT spots the first group of hippos. Resting submerged below the murky Amazon waters, just their heads exposed. Pointing she let's out a shrill whistle to inform the others that danger was ahead of them. JL directs her companions to stop paddling, and allows the boat to move slowly along pulled by the current of the water. Sky and Kaji's boats pass by the hippos without incident. Next boat to pass is LA and Dixie's group, guarded by Cappy. As Cappy instructs his friends to stop paddling, one huge male Hippo opens his mouth and lets out an angry roar. His sudden call rouses the others in the pod.

  Hi Pico
Hello fellow Amazon Adventurers. I was sure glad to see that Ms BB had welcomed her pal to join us for a part of our trip up the River. She musta known we were going to run into some nasty company along the way. Nothing worse then Crocs or gators for rocking the boat so to speak. Thankfully we had warning from Finny and the Green Angels. With BB's shuttle always on the ready she was able to have her friend Mick from Australia join us . He has a nickname of Crocodile Dundee. Mick stepped up on the bow of the long boat so the crocs could see him better. When they did they all headed for the bottom of the river & stayed there. They didn't want to be made into boots,belts,hats or luggage!!! I sorta feel sorry for them after Cappy and Little Angel got done with them.
"OK, enough with the green gator guys, Ok Crocs. Let me at' em. I'll show them a thing or five. I'll bite their noses, sparkle their tails and then......"Li
"il Angel yells at the crocs as they swim around the boats. "Oh you don't wanta wake the baby.
Too late....LOOK OUT CROC HERE I COMEEEEEEEEEEE." Little Angel grabs an oar and whacks the croc on the nose hard making tears come to his eyes.
Little Angel" Sky yells, "Stop hurting the Crocs, you're making them cry. OH no not that." He watches as she grabs one by the tail and bites down as hard as she can, "and trust me that's hard."
"Little Angel, I thought I told you be good?" Amando looks at her and can't help but grin as he watches the neon sparkled crocs swimming away in shame, that a little girl bird beat them up.
Everybirdie laughs as the crocs disappear. Then little Angel turns to see Mick standing on Ms BB's boat. She grins sheepishly and giggles. "Way ta go mate" Mick calls to her making LA happy.
"Whew! That was a close one! Thankfully, LA, Cappy and Ms. BB took care of those nasty crocs! Good grief! What will we encounter next?? Oh, oh....my Green Angels just informed me that there are some hippos up the river. Just what we need! Do be careful. Hippos are even more dangerous than crocs. We have to find baby Armando's Momma and get him home before anything else happens. I'm off to check on the hippo situation and really search for Armando's Momma. " Finny waves his good-bye as he heads off up-river to re-join the Green Angels as they gather information about the hippos.
Heading into shore, tie off their boats and relax. Its lunch time so Ms BB sets up her portable kitchen." How about deep fried gator bites, corn dogs and deep fried pickles?
I have been told by Mr Mick Dundee the gator bites taste like chicken. " Picabo makes a face at the thought of Gator bites. Boo Boo yells, " Bring'em on!"
"Then we can sneak past those Hippos and continue our hunt for the baby"s Mom & Dad."
As BB and the girls cook lunch, the boys bring out some maps and check for possible nesting sites ahead. As they look over the map Willie points to a treed area, "LOOK! A nesting area of Amazon species"

  Hi Pico
Good morning Amazon Adventurers time to rise and shine! Amando calls out happily as he wakes his sleeping friends. " It's once more time to load our long-boats and move further in-land on our search for baby Armando's Momma and flock." The sleepy eyed BC Adventurers yawn and climb off their sleeping perches, waking to the smells of Ms BB's fresh brewed coffee and the warmth of the Brazilian sun falling softly on their faces. Eating a quick breakfast the travelers ready their boats, pushing off from shore, determined to make Santarem by late afternoon.
Santarém (Portuguese pronunciation: [s?~ta'??j]) is a municipality in the state of Pará in Brazil. The Tapajós joins the Amazon River there, and it is a popular location for tourism. It is the second most important city in the state and the financial and economic center of the western part of the state. It was once home to the Tapajós Indians, a tribe of Native Americans after which the river was named, It is located some 800 km (500 mi) from both the largest cities in the Amazon, Manaus, and the state capital Belém. It has a population of 300,000.
Pushing out into the Amazon River, the group paddles through the early morning without incident. Suddenly Finny and the Green Angels arrive, landing on the helms of the boats. "Amando,
just wanted to warn you guys to be careful up ahead. There are some crocs sunning themselves up the river. You never know if they'll take off after a boat or not, so be on the lookout and be very careful with little Armando." With that they were off again, scouting ahead for danger and Armando's Momma.
"I THINK BABY ARMANDO RECOGNIZES THE SOUNDS HE IS HEARING. OH I DO HOPE WE FIND HIS MOMMA AND HE KNOWS HER VOICE." Kacey and Sweetpepper say as they cuddle the baby close, keeping him safe. Armando chirps happily, straining his neck to see everything as the boats slip effortlessly through the murky waters.
"We are all so excited to be on this journey to find baby Armando's parronts.And to destroy all the poachers along the way who have done all this damage to our native habitat!" Dixie tells L'il Angel, an angry look in his dark eyes.
The boats turn the bend in the river, and there, laying on both banks are dozens of crocs and gators, basking in the mid-day sun. As the boats move forward, the paddles ripping swiftly through the water, black eyes open and disappear beneath the water at the edge of the river. Suddenly Falco lets out a terrified scream, grabbing onto Jesse. Their boat vibrates as the croc comes up from underneath, hitting the boat from below. Hulk and Willie hold tightly to their oars as the croc swims around the sides of the boat, then disappears under the water. " HELP!" Boo Boo yells as the croc hits the boat on the side, tipping it over, and causing it to take on water.
BB and Sky turn their long-boat quickly, with Kaji and JL paddling as hard as they can, Cappy holds his oar up, hoping to get a swing at the angry reptile.

  Hi Pico
Hello everybirdie, I am sorry for missing Sunday but we were Squawked right off of BC from dawn to dusk. I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and are ready to continue our trek down the Amazon River to find baby Armando's parents. Some have commented that they are unable to make a picture of themselves on our Adventure. Picture or not you are all a necessary active part of this trip and we couldn't do it without your help. Thanks for your daily support and tot hose who leave comments we are able to write into our daily posts.
"We're off in search of Armando's Momma" Amando calls out as the long-boats push off from shore. The eggcitement of the day and the upcoming adventure slips away as the boats cut smoothly through the water. Native birds fly over head shouting their greetings as the group of Adventures paddle down the river in search of Armando's flock.
Jenny, always on the vigil, oversees Sky & Amando's plan of returning baby Armando! She will not allow this venture to go South, "there will not be any days like that! This is not a vacation, THIS IS SERIOUS CRAP! " Jen is learning to understand the Napanee flock, and just like her, they are as serious as a heart attack, Jen loves the real things in life! This adventure will not fail!
The birds joke and laugh as they paddle enjoying the scenery slipping by on the shoreline. A Jaguar leans over to get a closer look at the passing Birds. BonBon and Parker fly over to speak to him. " Do you know of a flock of Amazons that have a baby that was stolen from them? We found him, but don't know where to find his Momma."
"He is likely from further inland. Poachers were raiding nests in there a few weeks ago, stealing countless babies from nests, cutting down their nesting trees if necessary. I have seen many dead babies lying discarded along the trails, tossed away like garbage, all in the name in profit" The angry Jaguar roars his displeasure. " Once the nest trees are destroyed there are no places for future nests or chicks to live."
Susan shivers as her boat passes by a submerged tree, where a large snake lies sunning herself along the edge of the water. The snake watches as the birds pass by, watchful least they bring danger to her homeland.
Finnegan and the Green Angels swoop in and land on the helm of the boat where Amando, JL, Cappy, Sky and Kaji navigate the River. "It looks like the coast is clear for now, but the Green Angels and I will be keeping a keen lookout for trouble. This route along the Amazon is really beautiful, at least the birds'eye view of it is." with that they fly off to scout of the river ahead.
Baby Armando wakes up chirping happily as he hears the calls of his native land. " I think he knows where he is now" Dory says to Chyna, Falco and Sugar, "Look" the baby flaps his tiny wings happily.

  Hi Pico
Hello everybirdie. Amando here with today's Amazon Adventure Update. I want each of you to know how proud I am of you, and how hard you fought against the poachers who were stealing the wild Parrots. Many species of birds and Parrots are extinct or on the brink of extinction. The two of the leading causes being destruction of habitat and unchecked poaching. With the criminals behind bars we are off to the shuttle and the trip down the Amazon to find baby Armando's parents.
Finnegan swoops in, "Hey Amando and team.....that was GRRRRRRRRREAT! We did it! Everyone did a fantastic job nailing those poachers. Now my Green Angels and I have to get busy scouting out the route and helping to look for little Armando's mama and flock. You know there could be many more poachers on our route. There are lots of them out there. So we're still going to have to be VERY careful. My Green Angels have excellent eyesight are the best team you could wish for. We're off." with that the Green Angels head up into the blue skies towards Macapa', and the beginning of our trip.
Kiddo comes to Amando, JL and Sky, " I think those guys are so glad to be in custody. Obviously jail was preferable to the wrath of the beak!" The birds erupt into fits of laughter at that, as they recall the looks of relief when the authorities showed up.
The BC Commando Birdies head back to the shuttles waiting int he clearing. Everything is loaded and ready. Baby Armando is fast asleep in Dory's wings. Cori tip-talons over to see him, smiling at his quiet form, sound asleep oblivious to all that has taken place. Dory hands the tiny parrot to Cori who kisses his little pin-feathered head. He opens one eye long enough to see who has him before falling back to sleep. Everybirdie is glad to sit down in the shuttle, after the awesome fight they just completed. Eggcitedly they relay the events to Paoo who smiles." There are more, many more out there. As long as people buy them, Parrots will be stolen from their homes."
The Shuttles lift off effortlessly and in a flash are landing outside of the City of Macapa'. The birdies climb out cautiously, keeping their eyes open for danger. Finny and his Green Angels fly by relaying the all clear message. Sky and Amando head tot he river to find their guide Jose' who will escort the group down the Amazon in search of the flock that Armando belongs to. A dozen long-boats sit moored at the waters edge. Jose' looks up as he hears Amando heading towards him. "I have already heard word of the fight your group won against the poachers at Belem. Word travels fast through the Rain Forest." The tall Macaw grins widely and offers a wing in friendship.
"Let's get the gear loaded and get moving. We have a long trip ahead of us." Sky exclaims
"Es, and many dangers also" Jose' replies with a knowing look.
"OKAY, all is ready" Amando calls loudly, as the three birds return together to the shuttles. "We're off in search of Armando's Momma"

  Hi Pico
Hi Commando Birdies, Amando here to update you on progress in the Amazon Adventure. Having encountered poachers in our vicinity we took it upon ourselves to take matters under our own wing before heading deeper into the Amazon to return baby Armando to his Momma.
"Bombs away!" Amando screams as the birds take perfect aim and Poop all over the frightened poachers.
Cappy stares down that ring leader, his eyes pinned and crest straight up. I am coming for you and I require a blood draw. He laughs loudly making the man cringe under the weight of the net.
Dixie and Little Angel have joined in the battle and rip up as much flesh off these poachers as they can get,and as Little Angel clamps her beak down even harder on the one poachers nose, he writhes in agony on the jungle floor. Dixie makes a play for his ear and bites down with the sharp point that his Mom had dremmeled for him to bite into his food easily,making the poacher's cries of pain reverberate throughout the jungle!
Finnegan lands by Amando and Jenny-Lynn, "Wow! That was a great attack, Amando! Let's get the big guy and keep it up until they all have to CRAWL out of the jungle. Then they'll never come back...I hope."
" I think we better escort these criminals back to Belem and make sure they turn themselves over to the authorities." Sky exclaims, watching in delight as the seven men begin to whimper and cry as bird after bird poops on them then flies off to return again. JL stands so close to the netted Leader that he can feel her breath on his face. Mikey D caught up in the action yells to her, "GO FOR THE EYES... THEY CAN'T HIT ...WHAT THEY CAN'T SEE."
"OK, get to your knees slowly" Amando orders the seven criminals," get crawling" they move obediently, " NOW MOVE IT" The six poachers crawl towards their leader, they help remove the net from him, as they keep careful watch on the angry birds. Jenny Lynn bites the smallest guy hard when he attempts to stand up. " I said your knees" Amando yells loudly.
The men crawl through the jungle, moaning in pain from the multitude of cuts and bites they have earned. The birds continue to swoop and dive at them the whole trip. They crawl the many miles back to Belem. Once there Sky and Finny head off to locate wildlife enforcement officers. Getting their attention by screaming, they bring them to where the poachers are being detained by the BC Birdie Commandos at the edge of the city.
"PLEASE, PLEASE arrest us, PLEASE." The poachers plead, "we have broken the law and have been poaching wild Parrots for many years" tears falling from their eyes, "PLEASE save us from these BIRDS!"
The Officers grin as they look at the bloodied, poop covered men cowering under the watchful glare of the BC Birds.

Hello Birdie Commandos, Amando here in Brazil. We are taking a huge bite-out-of-crime as we teach these seven poachers the price of stealing the wild Parrots of South America. I'm certain word will fly fast around the globe that the birds are ready to fight back. It's hilarious how grown men will cry like babies when a few dozen birds decide to fight back. Jenny-Lynn lets out a loud Zon scream and leads the attack. Sky lands on the terrified man's back, leaning in for a good shoulder bite. The man screams in pain. Jenny grabs his right arm in a Zon lock and clamps down hard. Sugar bites his leg as he tries to run. Amando flies towards his face. In fear the lead poacher screams for help but his six friends are busily learning a lesson about crime. Amando bites hard on the mans nose making him yelp in pain, He tries to fight off the angry attack but is unable to stop the bites that come one after the other. Falling helplessly to the ground he cries out in fear for help.
" Stop crying you baby!" Sky orders glaring at him inches from his face. "for years you and your band of thieves have trapped, killed and stolen birds from these jungles without one thought of their lives, their families."
Jenny-Lynn bites down hard on the man's hand causing blood to flow from yet another bite wound. "Soooo, how do you like it? How do you like being the victim?!!!" She growls angrily, glaring furiously into his terrified eyes. " I am not even sure we should let you live for all the birds that have suffered and died at your hands, and those of your friends." She bites down hard again making the poacher scream in pain.
"What should we do with these criminals?" Amando yells out to his friends who have cornered the six others in frightened, bloodied submission. Afraid to move, the seven poachers lay still as the birds stand guard over them, others flying above keeping watch lest their be others hiding in the brush.
Raffi growls menacingly at the head poacher while he stands on his chest, beak inches from his now very sore nose." why don't you try to run?" Raffi moves even closer making the man shiver in fright, as Raffi does his loudest Grey growls.
The Ring leader manages to stumble to his feet, pushing Cappy off him in the process.
Ms BB is waiting in the jungle for a pocher to run by. She has her super dupper net gun ready.
"Bammmmmm !!!!! Bulls-eye!" The net goes over the big screaming man running from Pearl and Silver, Cappy, LA, Raffi and Angel and Pepper. He thrashes on the ground cryen and whimpering.
"Now he knows what a trapped bird feels like,"says Ms BB grinning triumphantly at her victim.
" Let's decide what to do with these thugs!" Amando calls out. While birds stand guard the others begin to fly in circles above their victims, "BOMBS AWAY!!!!!!!!"

  Hi Pico
Good morning everybirdie, Amando here in the jungles of Brazil as we, BC Birdie Commandos prepare for an all-out war against illegal poaching. A shadow passes over the poachers causing them to startle just long enough to look up and see the huge flock of descending birds. Panic flows through them as they suddenly realize that the birds are not the Blue-Fronted Zons but a huge flock of mixed species, and they are flying directly at them.
Cappy is looking for that head poacher ... he spots a pretty big burlesque man and starts his attack run. He swoops in avoiding flailing hands and objects and rips into some tender flesh and blood starts squirting everywhere ... Cappy chews a little and spits as he takes off to prevent getting hit by the bad guy .... he circles and waits for another opportunity. "Is that a bird in trouble over there????" Cappy immediately heads over to help.
Pookie says" lets get dem Poachers!!" and swoops at the smallest poacher, biting him on the arm as he flies past quickly. The frightened man lets out a loud scream of pain, grabbing at his bleeding arm. Cappy and Cookie land on his back, biting and screaming angrily. The little man tries to get them free by spinning in a fast circle only causing him to trip and fall to the ground. BonBon, Parker and Spot land on their target making him yell out in pain.
"We WILL AVENGE ALL THOSE WHO HAVE SUFFERED. LET THEM POACHERS HAVE IT." Sweetpepper yells as she and Kacey fly towards a second fleeing poacher, biting him on the shoulder before flying away to make a second attack.
"LET 'EM HAVE IT!" Angel & Pepper join in to help with the attack, chasing a third poacher into the jungle, they are joined by a very angry Flitzer, Puffin and Chyna. The man trips over a fallen branch as the birds dive and swoop, biting as they pass by. He yelps in pain as strong beaks leave their mark behind. A forth and fifth poacher flee screaming in terror as flocks of parrots and birds follow, talons and beaks making their marks.
Gus, Kaji and Hulk join forces with the Green Angels as they attack a sixth large man, who tries in vain to fend off the attacking Birdie Commandos. Chipper grabs a beakful of hair and yanks hard as Finny, Chuey and Kallie take bites out of crime. The man begins to cry in pain, pleading with the angry birds to stop. Little Angel and Dixie enter the battle ready for the attack to teach them not to mess with innocent fids who are minding their own business and only want to be left alone to live and let live! LA grabs the man by the nose and bites down hard, refusing to let go as he withers in pain on the jungle floor.
Then the birds turn their attention on the ring leader. His eyes grow huge as dozens of angry eyes glare in his direction. The blood flowing from countless bites inflicted by Cappy........

  Hi Pico and Poco
I would like to thank you so much for supporting me on my quest to get into the 10K HOF, which I did yesterday, and for coming by to party with me. I think it is still going on strong, which is fine by me. I love a good party! Dad pointed out that I am the first bird from Canada, or out of the USA to get in, which makes it more exciting. Now, if only the world would recognize how we can all get along! Hugs from TiPaul

  Hi Pico
Hello Amazon Adventurers Amando here in Belem Brazil. With Paoo safely aboard the shuttle we BC Avengers are preparing to wage war against some well known local poachers before we continue our journey to reunite our small friend baby Armando with his parents.In low whispers the birds plot their revenge.
Cappy listens intently, as he continues to work on his weapons. Satisfied Cappy is ready for WAR ... his beak and talons are sharpened and his crest is up and he is fully alert. If he has too he will go it alone but he will make them poachers bleed buckets before he is through with them. Cappy glances at the little guy and gives him a scritch and a wink and tells him "you have lots of flock mates to protect and love you."
Amando describes in detail the jungle area where Finny and the Green Angels had spotted the band of poachers setting traps for the unsuspecting Blue Fronted Amazon flock. Jenny-lynn thinks for a moment then says, " We better break up into teams, each responsible for a different part of this mission. With the Green Angels doing over-head surveillance we'll know exactly where thtey are and what they are doing. "
"Keep away from all trees, and don't land on the ground, keep your attacks directed at the poachers, IF they flee out of the clearing, chase them, but beware of anything that doesn't seem like it should be there." Sky adds
"WE WILL LET THEM POACHERS HAVE IT FOR SURE." Kacey and Sweetpepper yell angrily, and are joined by the rest.
"Yeah, we are gonna get those poachers good!!" Kaji fluffs up and gives his mean look."They are not gonna mess with us, no sireee!"
"I am not usually one for violence but in this case I think a few Zon bites might be a good idea!!! Sugar growls.
"We can handle a few poachers easily" BB adds "JL and I can take care of a couple each. My Dad sharpened my talons for me."
An anxious Cookie ruffles his feathers and says loudly, "LET'S GO GET 'EM ! ! !
BonBon and Parker, being budgies have already begun chichi-ing in agitation, anxious to get going to attack the poachers! BonBon says, "let me at 'em! "
Spot says, "Parker you keep my fister safe! I'll be dealing with them on my terms!
Dixie leads the group in a prayer for their safety, and at the Amen they let out a triumphant cheer, taking to the air as one, they follow Finny, Chipper, Kacey, Kallie, Chuey, Pearl, and Silver towards the battle grounds. Flying in fighter-plane formation they circle their target before beginning to branch off into groups of angry, protective Birdie commandos.
Jenny-Lynn lets out the attack command " OK, N O W!!!!!!" and the battle begins in the clearing in the hot Brazilian jungle

  Hello Miss Pico
Hi everybirdie, Amando here with our current Rescue Mission update for Monday. Word has been that there are poachers at work close-by in the Jungle. They have located feeding grounds for Blue-Fronted Amazons. My frother Casey wants to have at them, as does many of the group but we have to plan this carefully. We don't want anyone hurt or worse. With Paoo safely aboard the shuttle, under the watchful eyes of our BC friends. It is time for some tactical planning.
``Wow that was fun," Jenny-Lynn has her wings full holding back a bunch of PO'ed parrots ready to do battle with the poacher. Taz, Puffin, Oz, and Flitzer are on standby, while Finny & his green Angels are doing overhead surveillance, with Chipper and P&S! The hardest one to hold back is Cappy Miller, he must be part Amazon. JL has vowed to wait for Amando and Sky's order to coordinate the attack, if necessary! A gnarly faced Jenny says in a Zon growl " I want one of these poachers for lunch!" Jenny reaches into her ruck sack and pulls out a banner that reads "NO MORE WILD PARROTS", and it brings a silent roar amongst all the brave rescue parrots, trying hard not to give their positions away...
Cappy is so disgusted with the poachers that he just wants a chance at them. He sits and sharpens his beak just in case he gets an opportunity to RIP some poacher flesh.He listens as Amando, Jenny-Lynn and Sky plan their attack.
" You and your team did a great job getting Paoo out of there. It was nerve wracking to say the least. Now what are we going to do about those POACHERS?? They're some evil, scary folks!" Finny says as he returns for a quick updating on their next course of action. He tells the group that "the poachers have moved their location further south-west and have set up traps by painting "a glue-like substance" onto the branches of the trees in a wild Mango grove. Chipper had gone in for a closer look and reported back that there are 7 poachers in the group, and that they were hoping to capture 200 Blue-fronts for their buyer."
Little Angel sits with Dixie holding baby Armando who happily wiggles and flaps his tiny wings. An angry glare crosses LA's eyes, "Let me at' em, I'll show them poachers a thing or two or three, maybe even four! Just let me at 'em."
"I say we make a air-bourne attack on these low-lifes. Teach them a lesson they won't soon forget." Kaji and Hulk say letting out low growls. "The Green Angels know where the traps are set and we won't land, except on those Poachers"
The debate gets pretty heavy but the general agreement is, " We group and attack. No bird flies alone, no BIRD, hear me, no bird, lands anywhere in those trees. What do ya say?" Jenny-Lynn asks
"LET"S DO IT!!!!!!!!!! everybirdie yells quietly in agreement.
So, here's the plan......

  Hi Pico
Amando here today to update everybirdie on our current rescue mission. We were successful in freeing Paoo from his chains of imprisonment, but just as Paoo and his rescuers reach cover, the morning silence is erupted by the shrill screams of Taz, Puffin, Tango, Oz and Flitzer. The panicked alarm sends everybirdie flying and running for cover. Finnegan and the Green Angels fly in at top speed, adding their distress calls to the chaos. Landing silently next to Sky and Amando they tell what they saw as they checked out some activity towards the West. Jenny-Lynn leans close so as not to miss a single word as they convey their message.
"Chipper, Pearl and Silver flew towards the south west while Kacey, Kallie and I headed towards the north west." Finnegan takes a deep breath, " as we flew over head to regroup we saw them, The POACHERS!"
"They were setting traps in the jungle growth" Chipper says angrily, " they have nets and cages hidden in the under growth."
"How many are there?' Amando asks concern crossing his face
"maybe 6." Finnegan replies in disgust
"I'm sure the calls have gone out over the Amazon. They will not be successful today!" Jenny-Lynn says growling in outrage.
"They were waiting for Blue-Fronted Amazons to land at their feeding grounds. We intercepted them and they've left the area"
As quickly as it began, the air once more becomes silent, but the rescue group knows they now must hurry before anyone realizes that Paoo is missing and go in search of him. Angel and Pepper lead the way as they quietly lead Paoo to their Rescue Central and the shuttles. As they move along, others from the group join them, each lost in their own thoughts about the Poachers at work in the area. Pushing the brush aside, they arrive safely at their camp.
"we're here Paoo, this is our camp. In a few minutes all the birds will be back from their positions during the rescue mission, and we'll take off for Macapa' and the trip up the Amazon. You're going home my friend, you are going home!" Amando tells him, taking his wing to lead him onto the shuttle.
"Thank-you my friends. All I have dreamed of is being once more back home. They took my flight away, and blinded my eyes from seeing the world, but never did they take away my longing to once more be free, even if it is for only a short while. My flock will take care of me." Paoo smiled sadly as he spoke. "too many of my kind, of all our species have known my fate, and that of my dear Rosa. Until someone will stand up and say "NO MORE wild Parrots" this cruelty will go on. I pray you will share my story and make a difference."

  Hi Pico and Poco
Mom got in really late last night from dancing, and was so tired, I told her just to get to sleep - we will do my blogs today. Some dancers from other schools where Mom and Dad almost moved, were there and they kept asking for more special requests. It was greyt fun for all. Today was Pepper's hatchday and we had a small party here and Pepper did not forget to ask for a new toy, but Mom had one all ready for him. She told me that when I get into the 10K club, she has a new shredder toy for me - one of the big ones that I especially love. I had so much fun in the castle yesterday with King Peppino and all my friends who came to visit me and that includes YOU! Thanks again for all your support. Yesterday, being BOTD was a bonus to my journey to the 10K HOF club. I never expected that. With love from TiPaul.

  Hi Pico
Hello friends, Amando here with our current rescue mission update. SHHHHH! we have to be very quiet, and make sure not to make a sound. Jenny-Lynn being well trained in organizing under-feathers missions for the Homeland Security organizes the rescue teams. Amando, Dixie, Peppino and Pookie hand out camo gear they'd brought from the BC. The birds hurriedly change and check that each one has everything they'll need to successfully complete their first mission; freeing Paoo.
Sugar kisses little Armando on the head as he peeps happily in l'il Angel's wings, " be good, we'll be back soon."
Silently the group moves out keeping to the cover wherever possible. Sky checks to be certain he has the bolt cutters needed to remove the chain from Paoo's leg shackle. Suddenly Finnegan and his Green Angels team land where Amando and Jenny's team are doing last second equipment checks. " All is clear between here and Belem, but we did see some human activity to the west. We're heading off there now. Keep Safe" Finnegan says as his group take silently to the air.
Quiet as mice, the teams take their positions. Spot and Cori fly to the trees next to the store where Paoo is held prisoner. Not a word or sound is exchanged as each bird begins their job. One mistake could mean disaster for the rescue teams and poor Paoo. Flitzer watches from the tree, taking in every movement in the city below. A dog wanders by oblivious to the scene about to unfold before him.
Jenny-Lynn, Amando and Sky creep slowly closer to where Paoo is chained. They can make out his still form from the distant cover. Kaji and Cappy head around to the opposite side and wait for the signal to move in. Taz lets out a short, high whistle, the signal all-is-clear, and from the distance it is echoed by Spot, then Gus, Cori, Kiddo and finally Sweetpepper.
"OK, coast is clear, let's move in, cut Paoo free and get him out of here." JL directs. BooBoo flies up to the roof of the store, taking her position to help lead the rescue team to where the others wait to help assist Paoo in getting safely to the shuttle. Amando leads the way, keeping to the shadows and low brush as they move in. Paoo lifts his head at the faint sound of BooBoo flying past. Unable to see, somehow within his heart knows that today he will finally be freed. Moving cautiously to the end of his branch he waits. Amando and Sky had promised him to return for him. " today I go home!"
Sky speaks softly to Paoo as the group reaches his side, " we're gonna cut the chain, and help you out of here. The shuttle is ready, but we have to be very quiet."
Jenny-Lynn looks at the chain in disgust. Cappy and Kaji help hold it so Sky can use the bolt-cutters to cut the link. Boo Boo watches for any signs of danger from the roof top. With great effort the chain is cut, and Kaji helps Paoo onto the ground. Taking him by each wing, Cappy and Kaji lead him towards the undergrowth where BonBon watches eggcitedly.

  Hi Pico
Happy TGIF my birdie pals, Amando here with today's continued Amazon Adventure update. We woke extremely early in the morning, prepared to make our rescue mission well before any humans would be up and about. With Jenny-Lynn leading the rescue party, we would free Paoo from his imprisonment and make a quick, safe escape to Macapa'. Before the humans would know what had taken place we would be many miles away.
(Before continuing further I must tell the reality of Paoo's life. Paoo lived 4 years in a totally dark prison, afraid to move beyond a few feet to eat and drink from his dirty bowls. He lived outdoors subject to the eliminates, no shade, no place to stay dry from the daily showers. Paoo never tried to escape, he was unable to see, so there he sat, until finally one day Miguel, the person who forced this prison of pain upon him rescued him. He was euthanized and finally reunited with his Rosa and flock at the Rainbow Bridge. Miguel grieves his past but fights harder then any of us to change the future, and protect the wild flocks. Everyday his life is in danger, because the poachers are not gone, the market for wild Parrots is alive, and those involved will kill men to continue it. Fly free Paoo my dear friend. Although the CITES act stopped the import of wild caught Parrots, the Parrots can and do daily enter the USA and Canada through Europe and overseas sources. Most of the "imported birds we buy are not bred in captivity-except those with closed metal bands. DO NOT buy imported birds--do YOUR part to stop this crime)" Miguel"
"OK, Taz, Spot, Gus, Cori, Sweetpepper and Kiddo, you six have to be our watch birds. Sugar, Cookie and Raffi you keep look out for any cars along the main road. SKY, you and Cappy come with Amando, Kaji and I. We're going to get Paoo and help him to escape to cover, Where Bonbon, Boo Boo, Pepper, Angel and Chyna, will assist Willie, Falco, Jesse, Pico and Hulk to bring him back here to Rescue Central. Dory you and Little Angel watch baby Armando and make sure he is fed and ready for a fast escape by shuttle once we bring Paoo back with us. If you can help load the shuttle Picabo, Elvis and Indy that will really help.
Jenny-Lynn stops to look at a map she has made of the area. "Puffin, Tango, Oz and Flitzer we need you to be on the alert for any signs of danger, sit in the trees out of sight. IF any human appears I need you to scream as loud as you can so we'll know that danger is lurking close by. Chipper, you, Finnegan,Kacey, Kallie and Pearl and Silver are fast, swift fliers. Your mission is to deliver information between all rescue party members. Move silently, so as not to bring any attention to our secret mission." Jenny-Lynn growls fiercely and " should I encounter any human resistance, we'll just........" she stopped not speaking the words that she knew Sky and Amando and the others already felt.
"Ok, let's say a prayer for our safety"

  Hi Pico
Hello my friends, Amando here in the Brazilian sunshine. After our conversation with Paoo, Sky and I return to rejoin the others at the shuttle landing site. We gathered together to discuss the frightening information that we had uncovered. The reality that this happens daily here in South America, Mexico, and around the planet was a wake-up call to some, and a sad reminder to others like myself of the freedom we lost. As I spoke of Paoo's prison his final words echoed loudly in my mind. " you must take Armando back home"
" I am not so certain it's a good plan to take Armando back to his parents, what if he too is trapped?" Falco questions worry on her pretty face. Jesse puts his wing around her protectively.
"I agree, it might be safer if we take him back to BC and let him live with us." Gus adds tickling the baby under his beak
Jenny-Lynn and Sugar hold Armando protectively, anger filling their hearts as they think of the pain Paoo and Rosa and others suffer at man's cruel hands. Cappy stands watch over Armando, his crest raised in aggressive protection. " We will not stand anyone to harm our little friend!"
"NO! Let us come across the poachers, any poachers, we'll teach them a lesson they will never forget" SKY Screams loudly, his eyes burning in outrage. " We have to help Paoo. He sits daily without shade, at the mercy of the rain or sun , exhaust fumes filling his lungs. We'll take him with us. We will help him, we will return him to his family." Sky screams, and it is echoed in the voices of all the BC friends.
Baby Armando chirps, unsure of what was going on, but sure it was something eggciting that lay ahead for them all. Dory takes the baby and holding him gently, feeds him his lunch. Armando grins happily, his crop full, as he cuddles close to her for extra protection. Dixie and Little Angel offer to watch Armando for a while so Dory and the others can begin to pack up the bags for the first leg of their trip into the Amazon. Lizzie and BB work with Chyna and the girls to make snacks for their cross country journey to Macapa' in the state of Para. From Para, they will start the trek along the Amazon River to find Armando's family.
Pará is the most populous state of the northern region with a population of over 7.5 million, being the ninth most populous state in Brazil. It is the second largest state of Brazil in area, with 1,2 million km², second only to Amazonas. Its most famous icons are the Amazon River and the Amazon Rainforest.
" Before dawn we will go for Paoo, then take the shuttle to Macapa'. We will be using long boats to navigate the Amazon River. JL we need you to organize a rescue mission. Finnegan I need you and Spot to fly ahead to scout out the route we will be taking once our shuttles land near the city. Check for any dangers, both wild animals and humans.

  Hi Pico... hi Poco
Thank you so much for coming by to help me reach my goal! :)

Mom took Marley to the vet today, and got her beak filed. She looks real pretty now. Heck, she is always pretty. After we all helped Mom and Dad eat their Shish Taouk dinners, I helped Mom get all the others to sleep and it was finally time for the computer. Of course there were distractions... the phone not working because the line froze, and other crazy things, but we are here now. Not every birdy has ridiculously cold weather like we do, and I don't think you want it either. it may be winter, but this is awful. It is supposed to go down to minus 32 Celsius, which is minus 25.6 Fahrenheit and with the wind chill it is minus 40 which is the same in either C or F. When is it going to be spring? Mom says not for a long time. Thanks for coming by... hope to see you tomorrow. Love and hugs from TiPaul
