My old owner couldn't take care of me anymore, so my new mommy adopted me. I'm a special bird, my bird mommy bit the ends of my toes off when I was a baby so I have trouble holding onto things..

  NOW PLAYING ... (Ö> JAKE AND FRIENDS ! ! !
You asked for it…YOU GOT IT ! Yes, indeed, Mom and I have been workin’ on a way for me to satisfy my urge to explore AND satisfy Mom’s directive for me to STAY OUT OF TROUBLE ! ! (At least I THINK this will do it…) ~~ Buddy and I have decided that we’d like to ‘explore’ our creative side; try somethin’ new; jump into a new project; STAY ON THE GROUND ! And we thought we’d try our luck at the visual arts. You know…movies, TV. ~~ You might have noticed that I seem to excel at the dramatic. So, having been told I’d be a natural at it, I’m gonna try my hand at acting! And since Buddy’s talents lie in organization and presentation (i.e. his reputation as a ‘Master of Disguise’), AND he has one REALLY WILD IMAGINATION, he’s gonna take on the role of Producer/Director. ~~ Now, obviously, this is gonna hafta be a scaled down version. Since we operating on a scaled down BUDGET ! Each day, we’ll put a scene from a well-known movie or TV program in my main pic (‘cause we just can’t afford a real moving picture production), so you can see what we’ve been workin’ on. BUT…and here’s were YOU come in…I’m gonna be needin’ co-stars. So, you’ll just hafta take a peek everyday to see who’s gonna be in the ‘show’ with me! ~~ And to make it interesting, I’m gonna give you a clue in my note to you each day about what movie or TV program the picture is gonna be from tomorrow! Just a little way to keep havin’ fun with all my new BirdChannel f[eathe]riends. No big deal. Not a contest or anything like that. Just a game. I think I’ll call it “What’s My Line?” (Get it? Movie, script, line…) ~~ Hope you’ll play along. When I hear from you, I'll send you back a clue. AaaaaAA!! Scream at ya again soon! CRJake (Ö> Trouncin’ on your vote button on my way out…

  Hiya Percy!
Oh, sorry, Percy. Excuse me just a minute. I gotta talk somethin’ over with my partner here. ~~~~ “Okay, now let me get this straight, Buddy. That…that…that GUY […that &%$#head…that “WISE ONE”] is tryin’ to tell us that n-o-w we hafta go on a SCAVENGER HUNT?! And the thing that’s gonna get us back home to our moms and our flockilys is some kindov FOOTWEAR??!! ~~ Now, pray tell, Pal, just where are we supposed to start lookin’ for said ‘slippers’? We’ve got no idea WHERE WE ARE! Let alone how to get THERE from HERE!! A-n-d we haven’t got the slightest idea just where THERE is anyhow!!! … Alright, I’m calm now. Now just how are we supposed to go about this little assignment, Buddy? Are these three gonna be of any better help than they have been so far? Or do we ditch them, and just rely on our own good sense? Man, I’ve been browsin’ that OZ-Net connection they showed us yesterday, and I can’t make heads or tails outta the stuff on there. There’s talk of witches, and flyin’ monkeys, and some girl named Dorothy (got NO idea on THAT one), and even some little dog named Toto. But not a s-i-n-g-l-e mention of any FOOD, anywhere! And I’m getting’ hungry, Buddy! ~~ I say we take a break and go get somethin’ to EAT!!! Are ya with me?” ~~~~ Sorry ‘bout that,Percy. Buddy used up all the time I have for today. Just enough time left to press your vote button. Scream at ya again soon! CRJake (Ö>

We are caught up in a tornado and don't know where we will end up!!As you can tell, I don't just blog about the weather..we like to have some fun, make silly pictures, and hopefully get a laugh from whoever comes by my page!!

Hi, Patrick here with a vote for you. Yeah, this morning I was just waiting to jump up on Mom's shoulder and help feed the rest of the flock. Fortune and I both helped. Fortune squawed on about "crackers" a word I have never used (I don't like them) so I decided to let Mom know I could say it to. She was so proud of me.......WISH YOU A HAPPY WEEKEND, Please visit my fiblings too as I am blogging for us all.

  Hi Percy from Zachary Senegal
Hi Percy - For a 'special' bird you are very attractive. My mommy does bird rehab - that's how she acquired me and my 3 friends here in NJ. You mommy is a good person to care for you. Be sure you give her extra kisses today. You said I was making a big mess. Yes I was. It was corned beef I was chewing up last St. Patrick's Day. I snuck over and started shredding it. Yum! You take it easy now Percy. Thanks for writing. Miss Zachary Senegal

  Hello from Fortune, St. Patrick D' bird and Lonnie
Happy Lord's Day Everybirdie, Mommy just now stopped to take a breath and help us write to our friends. Daddy is not feeling well and Mommy went to church then cooked lunch for our skin sis and her three kids. It has been a great day. We (Lonnie and Ellie) watched while Fortune actually played with the skin grandkids...They were thrilled. Patrick made a huge circle flight path through the house and has been flying laps. hehe He found the new FIDS ( Slate and Mica ) Mommy is almost hysterical... She was trying to keep us all separated. Now all she can do is pray that they are not sick or we all will be sick. Mommy said to tell you PICS OF NEW FIDS on FORTUNE'S page. BABY ZEBRA 12 day)PIC is on PATRICKS page. VOTES 4 ALL our friends. Love and Kisses, Lonnie, St. Patrick and Fortune

Wow...that is interesting that you still have those bright red tail feathers. I am glad to hear that you have learned to let some of your tail feathers grow in. They sure are pretty. Is it only your tail feathers that you pull? Mom worries that I might pluck one day since I am constantly cleaning myself. She thinks I am an over-preener...is that anything like an over-achiever? he he he! I hope you learn to let all those feathers come in. Thanks for visiting me. Kisses! ~TOOTLES~

  Welcome to the Channel!
I hate to be beaky but is that a recent picture of you? I see you are older but you still have those congo reds. Mom thought I would lose mine as I get older. Sorry...hope you don't mind the question. My mom loves to be beaky. he he he! I am sorry to hear that your birdie mom wasn't so nice. It sounds like you have a nice human mom and I am glad to hear that. Welcome to the channel. Take care. ~TOOTLES~

  Hello from Ollie
Hello Percy my name is Ollie. I don't like it when mom doesn't share her food with me too. So now mom makes me up a small dish of whatever she is having for dinner and we eat together, the way it should be. She likes it because now I don't scream at her for her food :) It's great that you found a new loving home. It's hard when an owner gets older. My mom has a friend that had to give up his Umbrella Too when he moved into a housing development. It was as hard on him as it was the bird. Here is a vote, fly by and visit me if you get the chance.
