  Caymus here...
It’s a quiet day today…just hanging out listening to some Jimmy Buffet (hey, I’m a Florida bird…what do you expect?) and pulling apart what little remains of the toy daddy bought for me on Sunday. Mom should be home by the time I’m finish with that, and then it’s toy rotation time! (CAYMUS’ "GREEN IDEA OF THE DAY": If every American switched to receiving just one bill as an electronic statement instead of a paper one, the one-time savings would be 217,800,000 sheets—enough to completely blanket the island of Key West in a single layer of paper. 5 more days until Earth Day!)

  ‘Twas the Night Before Easter – By Caymus & Peachy
‘Twas the night before Easter, on a warm Florida night**And Caymus was snuggled in his hut out of sight.**Peachy was snoring, the cats on the couch,**Mom and dad in the bedroom; all was quiet in the house.**And while the Conure was dreaming about hard-boiled eggs**(Which he was soon to consume and get all over his head),**In the sky flew a birdy not many have seen**He was yellow and blue and orange and green.**He had all of the colors that we’ve come to know**When we look up in the sky and see a rainbow.**Purples and pinks, some teal and blue**And gold was his tail, leaving streaks where he flew.**Now we have heard stories about bunnies and such**Who leave hidden treasures from his basket’s clutch.**There are chocolate eggs from Cadbury and jelly beans galore;**There are sugary treats, Peeps, bubble gum, and more.**But high in the sky, flying over the trees,**Above all the rooftops and smooth like the breeze,**Came a birdy so beautiful no one could deny,**Delivering delights to all his friends who can fly.**He had a gray beak, and a little round belly,**And his favorite treat was raspberry jelly!**As he landed upon one particular home**He looked down in the windows to see if any lights were on.**Now there was no movement or sound from inside this space,**So down the air vent he went (because in Florida you don’t need a fireplace).**Now Caymus the Conure was on high alert this night**And said, “Squawk, who’s there? You gave me a fright!”**“Don’t fret now, my friend…I mean you no harm.**But I’ve just flown in for the birdy nut farm.**I’ve got peanuts, pistachios and cashews, all unsalted.**Walnuts and sunflower seeds, too,” then he took a deep breath and halted.**Caymus said, “So who are you then, and why are you here?”**And the stranger responded, “haven’t I made that quite clear?**I have come to bid you happy Easter wishes**To you and your flock, even the mice and the fishes.**Thank you so much for letting me stop by,**But I’ve got to move on and to the next house I must fly.”**And like that he was gone before Caymus could blink**And that Dusky was left saying, “I just saw the Easter Birdy, I think!”**So the story now goes at this special time in the Spring,**If you turn your head late at night and think you see a wing,**If you find extra treats inside of your cage,**You’ll know the Easter Birdy is real, and could even visit your BirdChannel page!**

  Hello from Caymus
Hi Ivy! I hope your having a bird-tastic day! While mommy and daddy were visiting family in Miami this past weekend, they went to Simbad’s Bird House (it’s on BIRD Road…get it?). She met three Hyacinth Macaws, a Palm Cockatoo and a beautiful and very rare Golden Conure. She really liked a cute little Rainbow Lory who would not leave her alone and would make little baby sounds whenever she would walk away from it’s cage. Heck, I even know mom’s a sucker for baby birdie sounds! Daddy was quite relieved when mommy left the store a good two hours later…he says it will be a couple years before she can bring home another bird because “the zoo is full.” But mommy and I are breaking him down, inch by inch, piece by piece…..wha-ha-ha-ha-ha! Well tomorrow is my 1st birthday and I can’t wait to see what surprises I’ll get! Mommy is even baking me a special cake that I can eat. I’m going to love it because everyone’s attention will be on ME, ME, ME! hehehe Here is a big birdie hug and vote for a great friend. Squawk at ya later!

Love has no boundaries when it comes to race, religion, age or size. And as evidence of the special bond between a bird and it’s human, it knows no boundaries between species either. Happy Valentine’s Day from our flock to yours!

  Hello from Caymus...
Mommy and daddy are getting really busy around here, wrapping stuff up in really colorful paper with bows and ribbons on top. I love what they're doing; I'm sure it's all for me to shred and rip up! So we probably won't be signing on to the BC in the next few days and we all wanted to wish you and your flock a very Merry Christmas, and if you don't celebrate that, we're still hoping you have a very nice holiday season and send out big birdy hugs! Love, Caymus, Peachy, Mommy, Daddy, Sister and all the other critters here at the "zoo."

  Hello from Caymus...
Hi Ivy...haven't been by in a while so I thought I'd stop by to say hi. And, my mommy got me a flight harness. I'm not sure what it does yet but it's fun to chase the shiny things. But I have to grab on because my mom tries to take them away from me. And then I hang on and get lifted off the ground and I can swing on the leash! My mom says this is NOT what it's intended for but I'm having a blast so whatever. Hope all is well and I'm leaving you a vote. Come visit some time!

  Hello from Caymus
Hi's always great to meet another Dusky Conure. Aren't we the best? I see you have a flight suit. My mom's thinking about getting me one. Even though my wings are clipped I still manage to fly, I'm just a little clumsy. And being outside looks like sensory overload...woo-hoo! Did it scare you when you first put it on? Was it easy to put on? Hope you stop by and say hi sometime. Here's a vote.

  Hello Ivy!
Thanks for stopping by to visit me! I smiled when you said your 12 year old is interested in the Mayan and Aztec cultures. My Mom likes to give us names that you don't hear often, and usually she picks one that has something to do with where our ancestors originated. But this time, it was just a name on her heart waiting for someone like me to own it! She jokes with me sometimes and says the messes I leave behind are like the Mayan Ruins! I'm kind of clumbsy in by baby stage right now! My Mom knows a couple of Aztec boy names if you're interested. One is Teuch (pronounced Tuh Took) and it means "strong". Another Aztec boy name is Yaoti, which she really likes. To put simply Yaoti is used in America to describe combining human behavior with animation to attract attention (sort of like the Geico lizard on the TV commercials) She thinks that describes a parrot well, since they like to parrot human behavior. Alot of the Aztec names are long and difficult to pronounce, but these were short and pretty simple to say. We don't know if you will like them, but we thought we'd pass on a few ideas to you to see if we could help. Anyway, thanks so much for visiting me! I just love to get mail! Have a really great day! I think you are cute!

Come visit me, Cricket, Chile, Safari, Kitts, Cayman, Cayenne & Mayan.

  Hi again from Buddy
My Mom wanted a Grey too, but she never thought she would have one. We already have 4 dogs..we merged 2 houses when she got engaged to Michael and he had 3 dogs! Mom's not too thrilled with that many dogs..our dog didn't shed and was little..he has a Mastiff!!!So I think my Mom got me for her birthday because she puts up with those dogs..I help her by yelling shut up when they bark!!She is so happy I'm here..I keep her company and we chat all day!!

Come visit me, Buddy !!!, Little Bird & Gracie*.

  Hello from Pippin
Mom has hand raised a couple Dusky Conures. You guys are always a bundle of fun! Although the one that stayed at our house didn't like me very much. Is that a flight suit your waring? Mom got one for me but when she tried to put it on I had a freak out, so that was the end of that! I try not to go potty in my cage either. I wait untill the door is opened and then I'll sit on the door and go ouside the cage. Mom has lined newspaper around the sides of the cage for easy clean-up. Well here is a vote for you, stop by and visit when you get the chance!


Come visit me, Brett - Greater Vasa Parrot, Pippin & Ollie (the bird formerly known as Harry).

  Aww you seem very loved, Ivy. That is a really cute picture you have! I don't really like to go potty in my cage either, I hold it as long as possible and I like to wait for mom to let me go in the trashcan. My cage needs to be as clean as possible! Heres a vote from one conure to another! Love, Lily
