  Hi Popeye
I'm finding out what some of these strange thing are in my Cinn-A-Castle. Mom said they are toys for me to play with. I found out what the bell s for, and after a few minutes, it makes her tell me to stop. Hey, I do like the sound it makes, and she has to be happy that I am playing with it, and not bugging her, as I do so well.

Come visit me, Cinn-A-Bun.

Well I have finally been paroled again. Dad's ear is about healed. Mom has started diffusing oils daily to help regulate my hormones. We will see I how much it helps. Hmmm I would have insisted on at least tasting that steak .... I have to at least examine it and tongue it to see if I might like a taste. Very rude if dad didn't offer you a sample. Hope all is well. Have a great day. V4U. Hugs.

  Hi Popeye
Hello to all my BC friends. Zeena here with today's BOTM Post. Today we will take a look at one of natures most beautiful birds, also my Momma Deb's" dream-bird", the Hyacinth Macaw.
The largest species of macaw, Hyacinth grows to be up to 40 inches (1 m) long. The Hyacinth Macaw survives today in three known distinct population in southern Brazil, eastern Bolivia and northeastern Paraguay. In 1990, the wild population was estimated to be 2,500 birds. The world’s captive population is probably much larger, numbering in the thousands. Today, the wild population is less then 600 individuals. They are critically endangered in their native habitat.
Of the 145 species of parrot in Central and South America, 45 are in danger of extinction. All 18 species of macaws are threatened. The primary causes are habitat loss and heavy exploitation for the pet trade. The Hyacinth Macaw is especially vulnerable to capture and habitat destruction because it is noisy, intrinsically fearless, predictable, and dependent on palm trees. Hyacinth Macaws do not breed every year even under the best circumstances, so the predation on chicks is particularly bad for the species’ survival. Since captured young survive so poorly (up to 99 percent die between capture and final sale), adults are sometimes trapped through liming of perches or use of baited clap-nets. Still, for every macaw that arrives safely abroad, it is likely that five died on the way.
The United States is the largest market for the exotic pet trade. In the last decade, 8.5 million birds, at least 85 percent of birds captured in the wild, were imported or smuggled into the United States. Even when the export of birds is controlled, the domestic bird trade often is not regulated. Another threat to the Hyacinth Macaw is the increased commercial sale of feather art by the Kayapo Indians of Gorotire in southern Brazil. The feathers from up to 10 Hyacinth Macaws are needed to make one headdress. In addition, ranchers kill Macaws because they believe that Hyacinths damage palm trees, which ranchers use for fenceposts, and scare cattle with their noisy behavior. In some places, local people still hunt Macaws for meat. Add to this clear-cutting of Rainforest and you can see the danger the Hyacinth population has to becoming extinct within the next decade.
Compound all the above and it is easy to calculate that their best chance of survival as a species is through captive breeding. Selling in Canada at upwards to $40,000US each these beauties of the Rainforest will remain one the worlds most desired Macaw species.
One more Question for Thought.
It is often people’s love of animals that causes them to desire exotic animal pets. What can be done to educate pet owners about the impacts of wild-caught birds and other animals?

  Hello Popeye~
I hope you are having a great day! Sounds like some good eats at your house! We love Mexican food around here. Mom's uncle is from Mexico ans she grew up eating all sorts of good things at his mom's house. I just love the tortillas! I like corn, I like flour! It's all good to me!
Mom made chicken, bacon and a salad. IT all got tossed together and put in pita bread! Everyone was eating at different times yesterday so this was easy and no cooking was needed. Dad is home today so he will probably have tacos for dinner. He always has tacos when he comes home.
I hope you all enjoy the day ! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Popeye
Going to the Magnolia Bird Farm sounds like the best part of the week to me! My mom is the same way about food, hates to waste it. She even tosses our morning fresh food out to the chippies and squirrels if there are leftovers. They have all learned to eat my purple pellets, too! I say they can have all those purple ones.
The guy collecting parking fees at the museum said to mom we are lucky this year. We are getting 2 Septembers! It's been another cool, cloudy day here. There were thunderstorms predicted, but so far we haven't seen any.
Mom's tour this morning was a group of day care kids ranging from about 7 to 12 years. They wanted animals, so mom started in Bird Hall, of course. She also did a ton of mammals on the second floor, both North American and African. Then she took the kids out on the balcony to see the giant pterosaur, Quetzlcoatlus, with its 40 foot wing span. There was a reason, though. When that guy stood on the ground he was as tall as a giraffe! They had just seen the giraffe, so mom wanted to show off the pterosaur. It was a good move, because the museum had moved the herps to that balcony! So while they were out there, mom did frogs, salamanders, and snakes, too.
We are hoping for better weather tomorrow, even though mom won't have a chance at going to the pool. Her eye surgeon's appointment is in the afternoon.
I hope you are seeing warm weather, sunshine, and lots of cuddles, just for you! Hugs, Falco

Today is hot again, although maybe not as bad as Monday. They are calling for a high of low 90s. I got outside for my sunbath at 9:15 (yes, I was playing hard to get again), but it was OK. Mom had to sit in the shade, but then that is probably just as well. The sun is not nearly as good for humans as it is for us birdies. When we came in Mom took me into the kitchen for some blueberry pie. She likes the berries and I like the crust, so we share.

Being Wednesday, Mom will leave me for the gym from 4-6, but since she feels so guilty when she gets home I don't mind. I get her right up to bedtime at 8:30. Besides the zumba teacher on Wednesday is really energetic, plus she has no breaks between songs. Mom's trainer takes it easy on her on Wednesdays, but Mom still comes home whacked out. Luckily she is still strong enough to support me on her shoulder, but then I only weigh 70 gms.

Dad worked pretty hard yesterday getting ready for the lawn man, and he is in the process of making a whole new wooden play top for Limon's new cage! It will be complete with many perches, swings, food stations, and hanging toys, much like Christy's was! It is visiting VA Nurse day for dad, but no big deal we always hope! I am wishing you all a very happy hump day, and some of our fantastic weather! Have a great day dear BC friends, and give my love to all in your hump day home, see ya all tomorrow...

Hey, is anybirdy else missing their avatar and the ones in their aviary? I got nothing! Very annoying!

Well! My mom made a deep dish blueberry pie this morning before she went to the gym. What's the problem, you ask? The morning is MY time! Yes, she did take me out for my sunbath before she made the pie, and yes she did sit in my room with me while it was baking. Just because it is too hot in the afternoons to turn on the oven, I had to give up at least 30 minutes of MY mommy time while she put that pie together. And I only like the crust. She could have just baked a crust for me in much less time than that!

At least after she got home from the gym (and showered), she spent the next hour with me. However I was still mad at her from this morning, so I just ignored her. She sat and read, and I played with my toys. To be honest I was glad she was in there, but I would never let her know. Even if she did fix one of my favorite toys and reattach the bell. I do love those bells.

  Hello Popeye~
I hope you are having a great day! It's very pretty here and there is a nice breeze. It's going to be in the high 80's but that breeze makes it nice!

I have had to use other birds pages to get around BC today. My page won't load! I suppose it's working out okay with me jumping from page to page! At least we all know each other and I can find most of my friends on other birds pages!

Mom brought home a rug cleaner today! She has been saving up for it and thought she would buy it on Senior Discount day next week but it is went clearance last night and the clearance is 50% off this week. With her discount and some gift cards she only paid 23.34 for a 120$ cleaner!! She is very happy to have one because of all the messes Mandy and Merlin make! I of course don't make any messes like that!hehehehehehe
Mom may be very happy but I have to tell you it looks very much like that evil vacuum so I am not thrilled in the least!! Mom says I will not be in the room where she is using it so I suppose it's okay.

I do hope you enjoy the day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Popeye
Hello to all my dear BC friends, Zeena here with today's BOTM POST. Today we will take a look in brief at a touchy subject that has people lined up on both sides of the debate. It involves the breeders verses conservationists. I am not sharing this to side with either group, but as a general interest topic. These are exerts from an interview with Tony Silva a world renowned expert on Aviculture.
Interviewer; In light of all the talk about breeders, verses the conservationist groups, how can we make our legislators, the animal rights radicals, and the conservation elitists, understand that what we as private aviculturists do, is valuable and should be encouraged, not strangled with laws and regulations which in the end, will result in extinction, not preservation, of exotic birds?

Tony Silva: "We need an active, strong avicultural industry. Breeders must be allowed to breed for the pet industry, unimpeded by regulations and laws that simply do not work for us or the birds. The birds we raise for the pet industry supports the work we do with endangered species. And we have to do this, because third world countries don't care about what happens to their birds, they simply don't care. We have to look at individual species like the Spix. If it weren't for private aviculture, there would be no Spix Macaws. And the Brazilian government recognizes this! They say, 'Look, we don't care if we ever reintroduce Spix Macaws. We're just happy that authorities say we'll still have the species around, even if it's not in the jungle. '
Interviewer; Has the establishment of the CITES treaty curbed the explotation of wild Parrots

Tony Silva: I never would have thought imports would stop, because to these countries, birds are a renewable resource. In Southern Argentina a number of years ago, they were packaging up Patagonian Conures in cans and selling them to the Japanese as delicacies because nobody wanted to buy them as pets or to breed.

Look at the Tucuman Amazon. It is so rare they are difficult to locate in their habitat or aviculture. Officials in their range gave permits to shoot them because they were raiding the cornfields . Then there's the Scarlet Macaw in Surinam. It is on CITES Appendix I, but it is perfectly legal to bag up to 3 a day. The natives use them for food. Trade in birds' countries of origin will go on because these people have to survive. There is such a lack of education -- and you're going to tell them not to shoot this or that bird, or to protect this tree! And people won't believe this unless they see it. It's like the Hyacinth Macaw study. The researchers have a few lunches with bird trappers and gives their opinions as first-hand knowledge. But it's not accurate. Without captive breeding many species of Parrots the world over will cease to be in the next ten years. We need breeders to guarantee there will be any Parrots left in the end.

  Hi Popeye
Wow! We never even heard about the lightning strikes, and nothing like that happened here. Although Mom did think she heard some thunder. She decided she must have been mistaken....maybe not!

Pork roast is wonderful, but you really have to be careful not to cook it too long. My dad is a champ at getting it just right, and so Mom always lets him do them. It is too easy to get them too dry. Cooking with beer? Mom usually puts a can of beer in her beef stew, but she always usually a light beer. I think it is called Pilsner, maybe.

Yes, Mom is glad that Gloria the car is all pretty again. Several of you have asked about her after seeing her in my gallery, so here's her info. She is a 2001 Audi TT Quattro, and she only has 88,500 miles on her which is low for such an old car. Mom was lucky she didn't ever have a long commute, and one year only drove 1.5 miles to work! Anyway Mom bought her back when she was working and making bunches of money; she could never afford such a nice car today. That is why she plans to keep Gloria for a very long time!

I gave my mom a tough time about going outside this morning, but I finally gave in and climbed on her shoulder so she could carry me over to my outside carrier. Once there I had no problem climbing right in; I just didn't want to be interrupted in my meditation I was doing on my big swing. Anyway we got out there at 8:45 and it was a bit cloudy which meant it was not overwhelmingly hot yet. High today in the 90s again, so it's a good thing I didn't mess around too long. By the time Mom got home from the gym at 12:30 it was way too hot. In fact, Mom doesn't plan to leave the house again today. Works for me!!

  Hi Popeye
Hi everybirdie, Zeena here with Monday's BOTM POST. Today we visit a beautiful song bird making a new comeback in homes around the globe. The Pekin Rokin, a song bird of extraordinary talent. I wish to thank all my many friends for their votes and stopping to leave comments on my page. I read them all.
The Red-billed Leiothrix or PEKIN ROBIN (Leiothrix lutea) is usually found in India, Bhutan, Nepal, Burma and parts of Tibet. This species is a bird of the hill forests, found in every type of jungle though it prefers pine forests with bushes. It has also been found at elevations ranging from near sea level to about 7,500 feet.

The species was introduced to the Hawaiian Islands in 1918 and spread to all the forested islands except Lanai. Its population on Oahu crashed in the 1960s and it disappeared from Kauai, but is now common and increasing on Oahu The leiothrix was released in Western Australia but it failed to become established. This species was also introduced in Great Britain but permanent establishment was unsuccessful. It was introduced to France, where it is now established in several areas.
Adults have bright red bills and a dull yellow ring around their eyes. Their backs are dull olive green, and they have a bright yellow-orange throat with a yellow chin; females are somewhat duller than males, and juveniles have black bills. It has also been introduced in various parts of the world, with small populations of escapees having existed in Japan since the 1980s. It has become a common cagebird and amongst aviculturists it goes by various names: Pekin Robin, Pekin Nightingale, Japanese Nightingale, and Japanese (Hill) Robin, the last two being misnomers as it is not native to Japan.
Pekin Robins don't fly frequently, except in open habitats. This bird is very active and an excellent singer but very secretive and difficult to see. It makes a wonderful addition to a mixed aviary with good cover provided. Housing one pair per flight.
The standard fare for Pekin Robins in captivity comprises a mix of dried insect food, fresh fruits and mealworms. they especially like fruitflies and live crickets especially in the breeding season.
Pekin Robins are difficult to find for sale but well worth the expenditure and effort to find them.

  Hi Popeye
A ninja cooker sounds intriguing, as long as it doesn't cook ninjas, that is. Your dad is sure having fun with that new grill, isn't he?
Today is a rainy day and rather cool. I don't think it will hit 70 today. Mom cleaned and fed 13 skunks today, but her record of not getting sprayed still holds, knock on wood! She also took care of those little hawks who are quite grown now, and in the flight cage. (The flight cage is a pre release area for raptors, the center staff makes sure they can hunt, land, preen, do all the birdie things they'll need back home in the wild.) As well as all those, mom also cleaned and watered 3 more juvenile red tailed hawks and 5 screech owls. She also did some dishes and laundry while she was there today. Both of those areas tend to back up quickly if someone doesn't pitch in and help.
After the center, mom went shopping, but now she's home with us, with only one load of laundry to do, so she's basically ours for the day.
I hope you are having a pleasant day filled with sunshine and love. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Popeye
The milonga sure was a lot of fun, although I still say the ladies in bikinis (you know who you are!!) took serious advantage of distracting us poor guys in the volleyball game. Still not sure who won, and I don't really care. What fun! The band sounded greyt as usual, Ms BB and her liquid refreshments were delicious and Lizzie's buffet....well, let's just say nobirdy went home hungry.

If you come to my page and look at the first two pics in my gallery you will see Gloria the car in all her gleaming glory (why do you think Mom named her Gloria). That's right; the new USB cable arrived yesterday and the pics are finally downloaded on my page. I don't mind sharing space with her at all, as long as she doesn't drive me to the groomers. We are going to have a long chat very soon.

Had a nice sunbath this morning, and we didn't get out till 9:30!! There were actually a few clouds out, so the weather was very slightly cooler. Just in the upper 80s today, which is an improvement. It still doesn't cool off much at night, and Mom has to leave the fan going in my room with my cover open about 6". Which means I wake up as soon as the sun comes up. Mom usually gets up around then anyway, but now I make sure she does!

Oh, and today I like peaches! Mom bought a couple more when she and Dad went to the grocery store yesterday, since they had some more locally grown ones. This time I decided they were good, which is fortunate since Mom said the grapes were so awful she didn't get me any.

  Hi Popeye
Hello everyone, Zeena here with today's BOTM POST. Today we head to the warm tropical Island Luzon, Philippines and visit an unusual and exotic species of Dove. The Luzon Bleeding-Heart. The Luzon Bleeding-heart (Gallicolumba luzonica) is one of a number of species of ground dove in the genus Gallicolumba that are called "bleeding-hearts". They get this name from a splash of vivid red colour at the centre of their white breasts. The Luzon Bleeding-heart is the species in which this feature is most pronounced, and on first sight it is hard to believe that the bird has not recently been wounded. A reddish hue that extends down the belly furthers the illusion of blood having run down the bird's front. The Luzon Bleeding-heart was featured on a Philippine 2-peso postage stamp in 1994.


The Luzon bleeding-heart is classified as Near Threatened (NT) on the IUCN Red List and is listed on Appendix II of CITES., since it is commonly trapped. Local people use it for meat, but its striking appearance means that there is also a market for it in the pet trade. A captive breeding project has been started in Australia, and the Philippines. Habitat conservation is a priority but it will also be necessary to bring some of the three other species of bleeding heart doves (Negros, Sulu and Mindoro) into captivity, to prevent their extinction. Recently the first captive population of Negros bleeding heart doves has been established in the Philippines.

Only two of the five species of bleeding heart doves are held in captivity in Europe at present: the Luzon and the Mindanao. The European breeding programs for these species are coordinated by Bristol Zoo Gardens. They are being managed to provide a self-sustaining captive population and to develop important care and breeding techniques for use in the Philippines.

Identifying the areas where Luzon bleeding heart doves are found and the numbers that are left is the next step needed to secure this species in the wild. Once sites have been selected with the local community, the area will be protected to ensure the survival of the species in that area.

The areas where the bleeding heart dove lives also contain many other birds unique to these islands, all of which have been threatened by deforestation. In addition, some are threatened by hunting and illegal collection for the pet trade. By highlighting the plight of the bleeding heart dove, conservationists work to save the habitat for all the species in the area.

Although extremely rare in Aviculture 2 pairs were found for sale at $5000.US per pair.

  Hello Popeye
It certainly sounds like your Mom keeps your Dad busy. I guess that's the way it should be. It helps to keep them out of trouble.

All was not lost, as Mom made it home at a reasonable hour last night. I didn't hear her come in, but I sure made noise this morning to let her know that I missed her.

Come visit me, Cinn-A-Bun.

  Hey Popeye...
Yesterday it was totally SQUAWK for us !!! We couldn't send out one blog and couldn't get on our own page...
Friday we managed to get on BC and answer a few blogs before we got BC technical issues.
Yes we missed you heehee. It's been too hot here and my mommy is not feeling well because of the heat...
Maybe she will go to the beach today to cool off.

Have a cool and comfy day
Love
Panther.

  Hi Popeye
It sounds like you are having a fun time, and those grilled lamb chops and fresh green beans sound fine.
It was another fun milonga last night. It was great to see everybirdie there! Mom signed off because of all the thunder and lightning, but we all stayed til the fireworks were done, then went home in Ipo's shuttle. Thanks to Kiddo, Taz, Lizzie, and Sam for another great party!
Mom spent yesterday afternoon at the pool, it turned out to be a gorgeous day. Last night the thunderstorms rolled in right around time for the milonga and continued til about 2AM. Mom was kept awake by Daisy, who is scared of the noise. She was wearing her thundershirt, but she was still pacing and whining a bit. Today it's gray, cloudy, and looks like it will rain again. It might be a shopping day or just a stay at home and clean the porch day. I hope you are having a fun day of sunshine and summer weather, and that you can get out to play awhile. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Kaji, TiPaul, and Sky for 10k!, Peppino, In Divo's memory & Falco, Mikey and Chipper for 10k.

  Hi Copper Popper, from bank robber Jenny
Thanks Kiddo, SP, Taz, & Lizzie, what a fabulous Beach Party Milonga you put on last night, and Sammy and the Scruffies did a great job also, with good music! Sorry we had to be pulled away so soon, the neighbor man wanted to talk, and dad's sister called about a family matter, both were very chatty! Limon had a really good time and got to meet his hero Taz, they like each other as good buddies already! This should be a peaceful Sunday for us, dad has to finish assembling Limon's new cage, it should work really good for him! We are going to try to get Limon's BC page put up as soon as time allows, he is truly a remarkable TooMan! Have a great day, and give my love to all in your home, see ya tomorrow dear Sunday friends...

Love forever, from Jenny & the Dallas family

  Hi Popeye
Well I got nails trimmed and a wing clipped. Daddy was tired of me flying and attacking. The vet also sent home something called "Releaves". It's supposed to help with regulating hormones. Daddy will try anything to get me to settle down. Gotta run. Have a great day. V4U. Hugs.

  Hi Popeye glad to see you're back today
Hello my dear BC friends. It was a long day without our beloved BC family but we are happy to say once it was up and going it was actually much faster then before. I had a special request from one of my friends to example the breeding of mutations. As this is a limited BOTM series I will touch on it briefly. For anyone interested in more in depth study I have a number of very good links and references.
In simplest terms a "mutation" is any deviation from the "normal wild-type" of any species of animal or bird. They occur spontaneously in the wild, as well as in captivity. In the wild MOST mutations have a very limited life-span owing to their coloration or other physical characteristics that make them more visible and easier prey. An example of a successful mutations are the red markings on normal Congo African Greys. These individuals integrate well into existing grey colored flocks.
In Captivity mutations are able to live and mature thereby offering breeders an opportunity to reproduce like marked/colored offspring. An excellent example is the Blue Budgie. These spontaneously occurred in several continents. By breeding Blue offspring back to normal parents the breeders were able to produce more of the same. Through selective culling and breeding of F2-second generation-blues the color was stabilized. Mutations can continue to occur even in a new mutation color--such as the blue Budgies who then produced offspring with yellow-Lutino or albino pigments. Inbreeding, selective crossing and out crosses to other colored mutations has given rise to all the many colors common in Budgies.
When looking specifically at Quaker Parrots, whose natural color is green/grey we find that the first mutation was a Blue baby hatched in Belgium in the 1940s. It is a complete replacement of the normal green plumage by blue. The gene for blue plumage is Autosomal Recessive and both hens and cocks can be heterozygous or ‘split’ for or‘carriers’ of blue – depending upon your favored terminology! This means--both parents must carry the gene to produce blue even though they are visually "normals" Today there are a large number of mutations being bred.
With all mutations, breeders must cull out the colors they do not want and breed the desired colors into the gene pool. Through consecutive generations of offspring the color is improved upon, often mutating from the original mutation thereby adding yet another new color for serious breeders to work with. Mutation possibilities are limitless as they occur spontaneously and can not be "created" by humans. Hybrids must not be confused with mutations. Hybrids are the result of breeding two diverse species within the same Genera together--examples of which are the Hybrid Macaws, Blue/Gold mated to a Green Wing etc.
Today we will visit a selection of mutations from a number of different species, I hope you enjoy the results.

  Hi Popeye
Just a quick fly by to remind everybirdy that tonight is the July Fun in the Sun milonga. It is a lakeside beach party, and I sure hope everybirdy will be there. It will be a simple one, since the County Fair is in August and that one takes a lot of time to get ready, but it will still be a lot of fun.

  Hello Popeye
Mom got home late last night, and we had dinner together in the kitchen. She let me run around on the table, and I found all kinds of things to get into. I like to explored my surroundings.

Come visit me, Cinn-A-Bun.
