Sorry we have not been on the BC for a while. Mommy has been really busy with college and right before Thanksgiving mommy’s grandma who she was really close to passed away from cancer. So mommy is trying to get by. Also, guess what!? Mommy rescued a double-yellow headed amazon she name Phoenix. This birdie is beautiful but very aggressive. She broke mommy’s thumb with 1 bite! She has sent mommy to the ER several times, but mommy understands that people made Phoenix this way. She was locked in a cage that was less than 36x28x36! Can you believe that?? Mommy saved all her money and got Phoenix a cage that is 76x48x36. She loves the new cage and all the room! Mommy also got a pineapple conure named Aurora and she is great. Mommy also rescued an abused cocker spaniel named Boots. This 10 year old pup was in a bad way. She was really sick and is getting better, she was hit and kicked and there is nothing mean about this Boots. She is love wrapped in fur. So as you can see mommy has been very busy but wanted to thank you all for the cards and gifts. Mommy’s computer crashed so she does not have any of your email addresses. If you could email Mommy at
she will get back with you straight away. Oh I and Ridley are doing great! Rid is still chewing at her feathers, just the ones on her neck now, she let her pretty red tail come back in. We are so wonderful!
Thank you again,
Cooper, Ridley, Phoenix, Aurora, Poe, Piper, Boots, and Tricia

Hi! My name is Cooper

I am a Blue-and-Gold Macaw from Altoona, PA.

Cooper-Booper

18 years old   M

Blue-and-Gold Macaw

I love Banana's, Banana Chips, bread, crackers

My mommy leaves my cage door open so I like to stand on it,I like to be outside on the porch, I love to go for rides with mommy in the car. I love to be in the living room with mommy and the dogs, anywhere mommy is I want to be. I like to be with my mommy's friend that I have a crush on, shhh.

I don't like when people do not respect me!

When my mommy runs the vacuum I climb behind my cage and start talking and whistling, then when mommy looks at me to talk back, I turn my head like I am completely innocent! I love that my mommy lets me be me!

When being picked up I will only step up on the right arm. I like to meow really loud and when the dogs bark, I will either tell them to shut up or I will bark back at them! hehehe.

Cracker!.

  HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM LONG-LOST LITTLE LUCY
Hi Cooper, I don't know exactly how you and I got separated, but I'm so sorry about that. It was probably between all of Mommy's traveling in her job (which she doesn't have anymore) and my Daddy having cancer the past year and a half. Things got pretty hectic what with all the visits for radiation everyday and then the chemo every week. But, hey, Praise the Lord! Daddy is all better now. He's still not back to work because he developed neuropathy in his hands and feet from the chemo. So his feet hurt a lot when he stands on them for any length of time. They even hurt when he doesn't stand on them.

Have your parronts rescued or adopted any new birds lately? We have a sort-of new bird in our house. After little Daisy's terrible accident, Mommy needed to find another feathered baby who needed a home. He's a re-homed little guy that Mommy adopted last April. His name is Finnegan and he's an ekkie. Actually his name WAS Simon, but Mommy thought he needed a new name for a new life and she thought he looked more like a Finnegan than a Simon. He's about 2 1/2 yrs. old and has been a wonderful addition to our family. He's so friendly to everyone who comes in the door, but Mommy is still his favorite. He has never bitten anyone and is just very affectionate. However, he doesn't like his back touched, so Mommy can't pet him. She can stroke his tummy a little and can even touch his wings a bit, but not his head or back. Any suggestions? Well, I want to wish you and your family the very best new year ever, filled with good health, happines and as many blessings as our Good Lord can shower on you. Our family sends our love to all of you. Vote 4 U! Big Hugs from Little Lucy and Finnegan

Come visit me, Mr. Finnegan - Merry Christmas Everybirdie!, Daisy - R.I.P. - BOTW 9/17-9/23/07 & Miss Lucy Blue - Merry Christmas Everybirdie!.

My friend RIO is the bird in the spotlight this week. Please, pretty please, if you should happen to fly by the BC today I invite you to visit Rio's and give his vote button a good beakin' both today and tomorrow!

  Hey Coop~
Caymus here. Today I’d also like to mention that it’s “Prevention of Cruelty to Animals” month. My little friend Pippin from Dearborn Heights, MI, along with his flockmates Dusty Beaker, Skipper, Sammie, Max and Sapphire, reminded me of that fact. Thanks, Pip! I got my green idea of the day by going to Disney.go.com/Earth, where you can preview the trailer for the new movie coming out on Earth Day. And, to celebrate the premier, the film’s makers will plant a tree in honor of every moviegoer who sees the film in the opening week. The trees will be planted in the Brazilian Atlantic Forest, which is considered the most endangered rainforest in the world. Some of our wild cousins live there…so now mom’s trying to figure out how she can smuggle me in the movie theater! hehehe Stay green my friend-hugs and votes all around!

  Hey Coop!
Caymus here. Well it’s that time of year again when I really show my true colors and invite everybirdy our there to “go green” with me! Even my fister Peachy has gotten into the spirit…I mean, have YOU ever seen a green Canary? Rumor has it that I painted Sam the Grey green last year, so you better be careful or this year I may come after YOU! hehehe And of course, stay tuned for my “green ideas of the day” as well as some really neat quotes, and of course a silly joke or two. Earth Day is very important to our flock not just on April 22nd, but every single day of the year because as an old Cree Indian Proverb says, “only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught, will we realize we cannot eat money.”

  Hi Cooper its Captain Mac & Louie
Mommy & Daddy would like thank all our BC friends & family for the wonderful donations for us. Daddy is out of work because he hurt his leg and now needs knee surgery, and Mom & Dad have been worried about how they are going to feed us all birds without any income until EDD/SDI starts paying Daddy for lost of pay which is taking a long long time. Thank you again for all your prayers, supports and donations. Here's a big vote with birdie hugs and kisses Every birdie and their family are very special to us Boyds!!!!!!!!

This is Rocky's mom. I just left Rocky at the vets. That was the hardest thing I've ever had to do. Seeing him rocking back and forth in the cage, not wanting me to leave him there. I feel sooooo bad!!! I hope it all goes good for him. He's scheduled for surgery at 10:30 this morning so as soon as I hear from the vet, I will let you know how he's doing. Please keep him in your prayers. My poor little guy!! Love ya, Stacy

  Hi Cooper,
Good to see you back on the BC! Mom doesn't check my page real often since I went to the Rainbow Bridge. Maybe once a week. She usually checks my fiblings pages daily. Mom has a B&G Macaw now too. Her name is Bobbi and she has a page here too. She's still a baby...only 5 months old. You might want to check her page out! I'm always looking down on all my BC friends. Birdie hugs from heaven...angel Buddy

Happy New Year! I know that Peachy and I have not been around much lately but that doesn’t mean we haven’t frequently thought about all our dear friends here on the BC. We just wanted to fly by today to say that we have not forgotten about you, miss you dearly, and promise to keep in touch in 2009. You’re friendship has meant a lot to us (and mommy, too) and we all wish you joy, peace and prosperity in the new year. Ok, have to leave you with a “joke of the day….” Question: Why can’t a chicken coop have more than 2 doors?………………………………………….Answer: Because if it had 4 doors it would be a chicken sedan! hehehehe!

Hey bud, we miss you! I hope your ok. Please let us know. Well I am campaigning for Sprout again because he didn't make it so if you could please vote for him everyday this week, I'd really appreciate it. No one in his flock has ever won and I think he deserves to win because he treated me so kind while I was at his house and I would love to pay him back. Oh and his mom makes some excellent clam chowder soup! I ate 2 bowls of it! YUMMY!!! So if you could help us out again this week and I would like to thank you for all the votting you did for him last week. Your such a sweet friend and I hope you have a great day!!

Buddy's mom here! Thanks for your kind words on Buddy's passing. Yes, I too think I'll be with him one day. It's just so hard when you're left behind. Poor Clyde calls out to Buddy. I guess he wonders where he went. I hope another one crosses my path one day. It is eerily quiet here, even with Clyde who is also a cockatoo. If you want to email me (kathyk@seasidestampin.com) I will send you a tribute video of Buddy. It is 5 minutes long and was made by Stacy (Rocky's mom). It is beautiful. Email me if you'd like to see it. Thanks again for stopping by and give Cooper a big smooch! human hugs, Kathy

So how are you? Fall is coming quick, I can't wait 'till those pretty leaves come down! Lucky for me I got a window seat :) Well, Mom actually got injured running from an injury, see she was on a stool helping Dad install a microwave, you know those over-the-stove ones? Well the stove started making wierd noises so Dad opened the stove door, and it blew a ball of fire and gasoline at them both, and mom jumped for dear life, forgeting she was on a stool, and tore a muscle (And sprained her knee) in her left leg. So...Could you pray for her? Here's a vote! Love Suzyanna

  Happy July from Caymus
Hello Cooper! Please excuse the “form” email but it is the only way I can catch everybirdy up on what’s been shakin’ without sounding like a broken record. Anyway, we’ve all been very busy with yet more projects around the house. Mom has permanently put my cage out on the back patio and (drum roll please) bought me a nice new (bigger..yippie!) cage for the living room. She got kind of tired of rolling me in and out of the house and my water dish splashing all over the place. I started a few conversations with the neighborhood Mockingbirds, but the Blue Jays and Cardinals are still scared of me. The Pelicans fly too high for me to talk to, and I HATE, HATE, HATE the stupid vultures that sometimes land of the neighbor’s roof. I’ll scream my head off if I see one of these buggers! I’m getting along well with my skin-sis while she’s on summer break. Some days she goes to camp but on days she is home I make sure she doesn’t sleep too late and get her up around 9-9:30am, which is pretty nice of me considering I’m a Conure and I love a good morning yell! On the other wing, she does give me a treat for letting her sleep in a bit and I’ve helped her clean out her room, which is her project for the summer. And if you can believe, she came up with that project all on her own without any instruction from our parronts! Let’s see…what else? Oh yes, the back patio…well you know the one I’m on is screened in. Well mom and dad decided they want to lay a brick patio on the outside of the screened room, too. So this weekend mom started tearing up the grass and she’s got about half of it done. Next she has to level and tramp down the existing dirt, then spread paver sand on top of that, and then finally she will have to put down each paver, one at a time, leveling it out and fitting in the next one. Daddy wanted to hire someone to do it, but mom’s got her frozen lemonade and her big umbrella all ready to go and told daddy she wants to design her own patio and if it takes all summer, that’s ok. Daddy just has to supply the materials and mom will do all the work. And I’ll supervise! hehehe Dad’s bettin’ she cries “uncle,” but if I know mom, she’ll complete the project to perfection. I’ll let you know how that turns out. Oh, and last thing…I heard a firecracker go off a few nights ago. Scared the bejesus out of me and I took cover in my happy-hut. Last night, however, it was no big deal. Sometimes the humans in my flock are louder than an entire fireworks display. (I’m sure my parronts would say the same about me.) So mom’s happy that I’m taking it all in stride and she won’t have to worry about me having a nervous break-down on the 4th of July. On that note, I’d like to leave you with my joke of the day…Q: “What would you get if you crossed the American national bird with Snoopy? A: A bald beagle! Woo-hoo-hoo-hoo!!!!! Leaving big hugs and a vote…squawk at ya later!
