Hi everybirdie Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure POST. I want to take a moment to thank you all for your continuous daily votes, and awesome blogs. I am trying to use them in my story line so keep them comin.' IF anybirdie still needs a Halloween picture please let me know your choice of costume and I will see what I can do to help you out.
"AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" Sky screams shrilly and he a Jake back up quickly from the mound of parted grass. "What was that thing???"
"I have no idea but I'm outta here" Jake heads back to rejoin BB and the others, with Sky following on his heels.
Sky shivers, and ducks behind BB. Peaking out to stare towards the grass with dilated eyes. "EEEEEKuck." Sky did not get the words out before birdies began to scream and jump as fast as they could to join Jake and Sky behind BB and BonBon who had come to see what was wrong with her Poppa Sky.
"S-P-I-D-E-R-S!" from every direction big, ucky, black, beady eyed spiders crawl, hang and appear out of every tree, bush and from behind every blade of grass. The girl birds huddle close together as the spiders spin their webs angrily from every solid object. Sky nervously sneaks a peak again from behind BB, closing his eyes. He hates spiders, well no, Sky is afraid of them, and these are BIG, black ucky ones with a quadrillion legs. He shutters, then takes a brave breath of air.
"BOYS, we must protect the ladies" Sky announces not too confidently.
"Yeah, that's right" Cookie says, hanging tightly onto BB's leg once more. " we'll protect you girls"
"Oh really, they're just Spiders" BooBoo says snatching one in her beak and swallowing it whole, "YUMMMMMIE"
The others look at BooBoo and make faces, "how disgusting BooBoo, eating it without BBQing it first" BonBon chirps up. " AHHHHHHH, ones chasing me" she says taking flight. She lands on her Poppa Sky's head. "I'll sit up here and keep watch on them for you" she grins down at her red feathered Poppa.
The spiders continue to emerge, spinning thick webs everywhere. Their black eyes glaring like fiery flames of anger. The birds huddle closely as the Spiders move closer and closer. Suddenly Jesse sees what looks like an opening, and yells, " Follow me" he runs as fast as his talons will carry him between two Mulberry bushes with the others closely upon his heels. The duck low to avoid the heavy webs hanging from the old dark trees, and weave to the left and right around the huge black spiders who appear to block their path of escape. Jesse rushes forward, jumping over an old fallen log, and lands inches from a monstrous Spider, who growls and snaps his feet at the pasting birdies.
"EEEEEEEEEEEE" the scream brings the fleeing birds to a halt, "LITTLE ANGEL, the Spiders grabbed her into their web, HELP HER!!!!!

Hello friends, Jesse here with our Saturday BOTM Adventure Post. As we turned for a final look at BC Lake, the water is once more calm, glass-like and no sign of the past violent storm remains. Even the row-boats have disappeared. "WHAT! The row-boats, their gone!" Kacey exclaims loudly as she stares in disbelief. For indeed the boats had vanished into thin air.
BB looks at Sky and Jesse, then back at the Lake, "I hope we can find the BC Castle. It is funny that it has disappeared on us. I know it is a magical place but why would it vanish on the birds who love it sooooo much???" Then looking down towards the ground she says with a sigh, "Can somebirde please remove Cookie from around my legs? Its hard to waddle this way."
" SURE HOPE WE FIND OUR WAY BACK TO THE CASTLE THEN FIND OUR FRIENDS. THIS IS ONE SCAREY TRIP.' Sweetpepper tells Kiddo with worry in her voice. Kiddo takes her wing in his, and holds her tightly. "We'll get out of here, don't you worry Sweetpepper."
Spot comes to where Sky, BB and Jesse are standing, trying to decide what to do next. Jake walks towards the group, but suddenly stops dead in his tracks. "What was that?" he asks pointing to where he had thought he saw something peaking out of the grass at him. Seeing nothing he joins the others.
Bonbon looks and sees that her picture with Parker is in the photo album Hesse has on his gallery. turning to spot and Parker she says, "Jesse put me and Parker in the profile!Hehee!!! I can't wait to show Snowflake........ Oh no! I forgot that she disappeared!" BonBon starts to cry loudly because she misses her friend!
Spot hugs her and says, "don't worry BonBon. We'll find her and all the others too!"(He sounds more confidant than he feels, but he won't let BonBon see that!)
"Hey, Panther! I have an idea! We're tiels, and fly well! let's go up as high as we can and look for them!"
"Good idea, Spot," says Panther.
Jesse says, "you guys be careful! And keep up in sight range, OK?"
"OK, let's go Panther!" Spot lifts into the air
They fly straight up and fly in a big circle looking for their friends. Finally, they land and report to Jesse. "We didn't see them, we also didn't see the castle in any direction! I think we're lost!"
Worry lines form on Jesse's handsome face again, and he says, "it must be a trick of some kind by the BC ghosts! The Castle has to be there. It's always easy to find from the Lake."
Jake and Sky stand close, talking. "I am certain I saw tiny black eyes staring at me from over there, then they disappeared." Sky looks in the direction Jake indicated. Seeing nothing he frowns. " We better go check it out, just to be sure." The two boys inch closer to where the eyes had been. Parting the grass carefully using a stick Sky found on the ground they lean over for a better looks and suddenly the air is split in two by their terrified screams........

Helloooooo, Jesse screams in fright as the row boat bounces wildly on the storm tossed lake. The waves reach high over the sides of the row-boats filling them with cold, icy water. The frightened birds yell for help, their voices lost in the crashes of thunder from above.
After what feels like an eternity, the small wooden row-boats bump roughly into the rocky shores of the BC Lake. With a deep sigh of relief everybirdie scrambles to escape from the angry waters, and wind, jumping over the edge quickly, and running for cover in the nearby brush that watches over the normally quiet Lake. Jesse crawls along the beach, counting heads, making certain everybirdie is safely ashore. With so many disappearing he doesn't plan to take any chances at all from here on. Sitting down beside SKY, BB and Jake Jesse rubs his chin as he thinks of the next thing he ought to do. HE frowns sadly, uncertainly etching his handsome face with worry lines.
"I'm not certain where we are?" Jesse says, sneaking a peak out from around the brush he and the others are hankered down behind.
"We aren't far from the Castle. In fact from every point of BC Lake we can see the Castle. We need to get our bearings." BB says with confidence.
"Ok, Jake and I will head up that small hill and get a better idea where we are." Sky says climbing to his feet, with Jake beside him. ' Be right back" he tells BB and Jesse as they head off up the hill.
"You any idea where we are?" Sky asks Jake as they climb the hillside.
"NOPE!" Jake says looking around slowly. " NEVER saw this place before"
Sky takes Apache's binoculars from his jacket pocket and scans the area. " I can't find the Castle. Actually I can't see anything I recognize."
Sky hands Jake the binoculars. HE looks along time, then " whistles softly. Nope, me either. I think if we head towards the west we will find the Castle, or at least something we will remember."
Sky and Jake climb back down to where they'd left Jesse and BB. After a moment of explanation, they decide that they better keep moving. BB agrees that the Castle should lay tot he West. Jesse once more moves down the brushes, stopping to explain the plan to each group of nervous adventurers. He stops where Falco and Boo Boo sit quietly looking rather scared. " I'll get you outta here, and we will find the others. I promise." Falco smiles softly.
"OKAY, everybirdie, let's keep moving. I am sure that if we keep heading WEST we will locate the Castle, or somewhere we will all recognize. We need to hurry, we have to find Sugar, Cori, Pepper, Gus, Snowflake and Cydney."
With much murmuring the tired, wet, scared birdies follow Jesse as he begins to walk towards the West. The group climbs a small hill, coming to rest at the top for a moment. As they reach the summit, the wind fades, the clouds part, and once more the sky shines blue, and golden with the warm sunshine.

Hi everybirdie, Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure POST. " SHHHHHH, we don't wanta wake up those crazy trees again."
"Turn three times and head to the East" Jenny-Lynn reads the sign, " what do you suppose this is all about Jesse?"
"HHHHMMM" Jesse rubs his chin, thinking deeply, as he looks around at the land before them, " not too sure but if the sign says head East we better do it." Jesse pulls his compose from his backpack and gets his bearings. " Ok, this way!"
"WAIT!" Chyna yells, "the signs says we have to turn three times first."
Jesse shrugs, shaking his head, "Girls" he thinks to himself. "East is East, but ok" he motions for everybirdie to stand still.
"The sign says we have to turn three times then head to the East" Jesse begins to turn in a 360 degree circle, " One, Two, Three" he stops and waits as the last of the group completes their third turn. "WOW, that makes me dizzy" Jesse giggles as he tries to get his balance.
"Alright, let's go this way. The road is narrow so be careful not to get too close to the trees and bushes as we get down this hill." Jesse strides off, happy to be moving as far away from the Enchanted Forest as he can get. The sun brilliantly shines down upon the birds as they enjoy the walk along the old dirt road heading towards the Castle in the East.
"Look, ahead" Rio says to Jesse, " what's that?" he points to a shiny area off to the side of the road about a quart mile away.
"Apache? Did you bring your binoculars?" Jesse asks
"Yes, of course, can't be a good scout without them" Apache pulls them over his head, and hands them to Jesse. " It's a lake. It must be the BC Lake" he hands the binoculars back to Apache. "we're nearly back tot he Castle" Jesse breathes a sigh of relief. Soon he could get the Macaw Guards and go back to find his two missing friends. His happy thoughts are shattered by a frantic cry.
" Cydney and Snowflake. They're gone" Raffi cries, as he rushes around, searching for them. " Where's Pepper? and Gus?" the others begin a frantic search for their friends. I saw Snowflake and Cydney, over there by that red rock. The boys spread out to search, but not a feather can be found from their missing friends. Tears fill their eyes as they return to the milling group, and tell them their friends have disappeared into thin air.
"We have to get out of here, and back to the Castle. Come on, let's hurry" Jesse leads out in a quick waddle as fast as his legs will carry him. The others scramble to keep up as they continue down the road drawing closer to the Lake. As the walk, the breeze begins to pick up, and clouds begin to blow blocking out the warm sun. Jesse feels a shiver of dread as he rushes towards the East..

Hello, Jesse here today with you next BOTM Adventure POST. " I always liked trees, but now I don't know" "HHHMMM?"
Spot reaches his Poppa Sky's side, " here, you'll need this" Spot hands his Poppa a hatchet.
"Where'd you find that?" Spot points to a rock by a tall Pine tree. It was just sitting there."
Sky grabs the hatchet and chops the limb off the tree. " AAAAHHHHH!" the Tree yells in pain.
"What?" Sky says to Spot who is helping fight off the vine with Poppa Sky;s pocket knife.
"That hurt" the Tree growls angrily. " now I'll show you" the Tree reaches out so quickly that Sky is not ready for the attack. It grabs his leg and pulls him up into the top-most branches, hanging him upside down. BB hears the scream, and rushes out of the safety of the Boulder where her Sky had left her. Others had found the safety also, and hurried to join her. " NO WAIT HERE" she says picking up a large branch lying on the ground. " that's my Mr Sky" she dashes and runs over the snaky vines, and ducks under the limbs reaching out to grab hold of her. She stands below the tree holding her SKY captive, and pulling back she let's the limb swing, slamming a home-run hit on it's trunk. The terrified tree screams in shock. " Let my MR SKY go, NOW!" she orders angrily. The terrified tree watches as she readies for a second hit. With aloud gasp, and thump, Mr Sky is dropped onto the ground at her feet, in a pile of red and green feathers. Seeing Sky is ok, if not embarrassed she orders the tree, " and Cookie too, and any other birdie you have up there to"
One by one they drop onto the soft leaves and grass below. Six birdies jump free and scramble for safety behind the boulder.
"Ok, let's go rescue the others." Sky tells Spot and BB. They work their way from bush and tree to tree. Leaves shaking furiously at them, as they release their bounty. "Where's Jesse?" Spot asks once the others were in safety. I haven't seen him yet. JESSE?" Spot listens carefully. "Hear that?" he asks BB
"This way" Spot leads the rescuers towards the source of the muffled sound. There, lying rolled in Ivy and wild grape vines with only his bright yellow head feathers showing was his Uncle Jesse. " et eeee utta ere." Spot begins to carefully cut the twined vines and Ivy free, making sure not to cut Uncle Jesse in the process. " Ah, thanks Spot, I was starting to loose consciousness."
Jesse scrambles free of the vines, panting. HE looks around at the trees, now standing quietly, leaves stirring gently in the soft, autumn breeze, like a man sleeping in the sun. " What just happened?" he says out loud.
" We best be gettin' outta here quick, before these crazy trees wake up." Jesse waves the others onwards, as he stand watch until the last one is clear of the " Enchanted Forest". He hurriedly takes the lead once more, as the group climbs a hill. At the peak, a sign reads; turn three times and head to the East.

Hello everybirdie. Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure Post. I know right now, I sure wish I'd brought my cell phone with me.
Jesse and Jake head across the room, following the sound of the voice, with Kiddo and Sweetpepper joining them.
"Let's grab hold and pull." The birds grip the handle with all their strength, " One, TWO, THREE!" Jesse yells and they tug as hard as they can. They pull, and pull, with all their might. Suddenly, the handle gives, and a small door springs open in the wall. " We did it, we got it open" Picabo calls out happily, as sunlight beams in through the opening. "We're free"
Jesse smiles, happy to think that they would be out in the sunlight in a minute, and soon the Castle macaw Guards would be there to help find his friends Cori and Sugar."I bet their already outside ready to jump out and frighten us as we step into the sunlight." he thinks to himself as he starts to climb through the small door.
"Come on,it's beautiful outside. I'm glad to be free to that corn maze for good." Jesse calls over his shoulder as he steps into the open again. The trees look pretty with all their colorful leaves stirring in the gentle breeze.
Quickly the others rush out through the small door and shake their feathers to calm themselves, after being in the pitch dark, dusty room. They smile as the sunlight beams onto them, and the soft breeze stirs the leaves on the ground around their feet. They start off in the direction of the Castle, looking for help in locating their missing friends. They hadn't gone very far at all when suddenly a terrified scream rose from amongst them. Every head snaps round just in time to see Cookie disappearing into the leaves of a nearby tree. The birdies yell in fright, as the trees and bushes around them spring to life, branches and limbs reaching out to catch hold of them, as they dart and twist to get free. Screams shake the air as birdies are gripped by the leaves and twigs, pulled high up into the air.
"Jesse" Elvis yells, as he dashes to stay free of a vine, trying to wrap around his foot. " help, we gotta save the others"
Elvis, leaps just in time and the vine snakes back into the darkness below the tall Oak tree nearby.
Sky dodges a limb, grabbing BB by the waist and hurrying behind a large boulder away from the trees. " You stay here, I'm going to save our friend Cookie. Sky hops,and jumps vines and limbs that fly forwards to capture him, as he works towards the tree where Cookie is yelling for help. " I'm here buddy." Sky ducks as a branch reaches for his head. " That's it. Enough" he takes out his pocket knife and cuts the vine around his foot, and snips the end of the branch as it reaches forward once more.

Happy Sunday to all my BC friends. I hope you all are having an enjoyable weekend. Thank you to each of my friends for their votes, messages and encouragement. I hope your ready for today's adventure in the Corn Maze.
"AUHHHHHH!" Sky coughs, as dusty air fills the room. "What is that awful smell? "
"I don't know buddy, but it wasn't me who did it." Jake laughs loudly, sneezing as the dust swirls and turns in clouds around them. How can that dust blow everywhere when we haven't moved?"
Looking from one to the other, their eyes big. One by one the group files into the stinky, dusty room and crowds together in the damp, blackness. "Everyone here?" Jesse asks
The room is alive with answers. " CORI? SUGAR?" No answer comes.
" Has anybird seen Cori or Sugar?" Jesse questions fearful of what might have become of them in the darkness
" After a moment of puzzled questions and answers, " NO, last time I saw Sugar or Cori was when we were by that hole in the wall, where the maggots where." Pookie and Laka reply. Laka's pretty face pales at the thought of what might have happened to her friends.
"I'll go back and look for them" Raffi says, Cinn-A-Bunn joining him, as they lave the room and feel their way back down the wall. Sky and Jesse rush to catch up, as the four boys search for their missing friends. In the gloomy room, the others stand restlessly waiting. Fearing what fate might have befallen their missing companions.
"We should have gotten to the hole by now. It wasn't this far Jesse" Cinny says
"Yeah, where did the hole go?" Raffi asks concern in his voice, it should have been back a ways in the other direction. " Let's go back, we must have missed it somehow." The four boys turn and retrace their steps. Arriving at the door frame once more they step inside. " DID they show back up?" Jesse asks hopefully. When he hears that negative responses he swallows the lump in his throat.
" I say we go onwards, get outside and go get the Castle Guards to help search. They likely found a way out and are waiting to scare us when we step out the door." BB says, looking at Sky her eyes filled with tears. " I know they're ok, you'll see" Sky pulls her close and hugs her tightly, " we'll find them sweetheart."
"Let's all check out this room carefully for the way out. Stay close so you can feel each others wings and us your feet and wings to feel for the door out of here." Jesse instructs the group. They make their way to the walls, and start to run their wing tips over the icy surface.
"I found something right here" Picabo says, touching a handle made of wood, attached to the wall in front of him. " It must be a trap door outside."

Hi friends, JESSE here once more with your BOTM POST. "WOW, it sure is dark in here" Being a boy Amazon, I have to be brave, bold and courageous? "Jenny-Lynn? You here?"
Little Angel clings tightly to Dixie's wing-tip, as she tries to think how to get out of this scary, dark corn maze. How hard can it be to chew through the corn stalks anyways?
"I have an idea" LA calls out in the blackness. We can chew through the corn stalks and climb out."
"Greyt idea LA" Jenny-Lynn says heading tot he wall and grabbing a beakful of corn-stalk. " HEY, hello? I could use of help here" she says as she pulls a piece free and throws it onto the floor. Soon, everybirdie is busily working their way through the wall of dried corn stalks. " I'm through. Come on, let's pull these piece out and get outta-here."
Sky, Jake, Jesse and Finnegan work quickly to remove the remaining wall, as the others push them out of the way. Jesse carefully climbs through and steps down onto the ground. "AHHHHHHH!" he screams in terror. "Pull me back in, pull me back in, hurry" The group of adventurous birdies grab their friend and guide and yank him through the hole into their midst. " Maaaaaagoootts" he says trembling.
"Let me at them" Boo Boo chirps up, " their greyt on bread with peanut butter"
"YUCK!!!!, OWWWWWW!! GROSS!" everyone gags at the thought of maggots on peanut butter.
"HEY, don't refuse it till ya try it" Boo Boo says grinning, a twinkle in her eye.
"Let me look" Jenny offers, sticking her head through the large hole in the wall. " YEP, maggots all right." she backs into the room, " millions of them everywhere"
Jesse calms down and shakes to make sure none got onto his feathers. " We can't go that way to get out. We'll have to feel our way and go on" He places a wing tip onto the wall, " OH, watch your step" he trips over what feels like a fallen tree limb?' He wonders to himself how a tree limb got into this hallway.
Everybirdie places their wings onto the rough wall, and inching carefully forward follow Jesse down the twisty hallway. Jesse feels his way until he reaches what feels like a wooden door frame. He stops and runs his wings over the frame, then the cold, hard door. "I found a door. It must be the door that leads us outside again."
Jesse pushes on the door, but it is stuck tight. Then in the pitch blackness, his wing touches a metal doorknob. Using both wings he turns it. Slowly it moves, grinding and clicking, as it opens the door. Jesse pushes the door and it opens noisily on rusty sounding hinges. A puff of stale, dusty air escapes into the hallway, making everybirdie sneeze. " ok, come on, we're going to get out of here. When you go through the door stop and wait until we are all together. We don't want to leave anybirdie behind."
Jesse walks into the room, followed by Jake and Sky, BB and Kiddo. They cough as foul-smelling dust rises into the air.

  October BOTM POST number three
Hello friends, Jesse here with today's BOTM Adventure Post. I am busily picking up your costume photos, so if yours is ready let me know and I'll fly over for it. IF you need some help with one, just let me know and we'll see what we can create for you. Are you ready???
The others follow, trusting that Little Angel must know what lay before them. Birdies flick on their flashlights,as they are enveloped in blackened gloom. Staying close together they step cautiously along the wall, keeping as close to LA as possible. Jesse hurries to the front of the line. Not wanting to be left behind.
"Little Angel, do you know where you're going?" he asks anxiously
"NOPE" LA answers with a flash of annoyed eyes, as she continues to slowly lead down the straight entrance wall. After what seems like a long walk but in fact was only a rather short one,they come to a sudden stop in the darkness. Two tunnels lay open before them. One leading to the right, is narrow, and appears to be clear of rocks and other hidden obstacles. The second tunnel is huge looking with many large boulders scattered around the entrance.
Jesse takes a deep, slow breath, and gazes at the two tunnels before them. He looks as closely as he dare in first the one, then the other.
"AH SKY? JAKE?, birdly-conference" Jesse yells out louder then necessary, then catches himself and continues, " can you please join me for a momenttttt?"
Sky and Jake hurry in the direct that Jesse's voice had come from. They find Jesse pacing up and down in front of the two tunnel entrances. Seeing his frother SKY and Jake, he stops in mid-stride and joins them as they huddle in foot-ball style heads close and whispering in soft voices.
"What way do we go?" Jesse questions
"Don't ask me, I'm only here for the trip" Sky says, trying not to sound too nervous himself
"Let me see" Jake says looking closely at both, " well, how's bout we toss a coin? Heads we go to the right, and tails we leave all together.?"
"Why don't we just leave the same way we came in?" Jesse says, " we can always say the pathway is blocked for repairs. Permanently"
Suddenly the air is split by a high-pitched terror filled scream. Everyone freezes in fear as Little Angel screams a second time, sending chills up and down everybirdies spine.
"What? What was it? Did you see something?" Sky inquires urgently of his fister
"NO!!!! Little Angel looks white as a ghost, " AAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH" she screams again, " I FORGOT my red and orange SPARKLES in the Castle!" she looks so upset and tears are streaming down her green cheeks. " I left them on the table in the Banquet room. I can't go on an adventure without my sparkles. Cookie gave them to me for my hatchday!" She turns to run, but stops dead in her tracks, the entrance hall is gone!!!!!!

  October BOTM POST number TWO
Hello everybirdie, Jesse here with today's BOTM blog. Well, I have changed my mind. NO ladies, I'm not a girl birdie, but I was thinkin' long and hard and spoke with my friend Jake from the K Kritter Koral and have decided rather then doing a month of educational blogs " We're Birds and we gotta have FUN!!!" Halloween is just around the corner, ok, well many corners so this month with the help of my lovely fisters Queen Angel Girl and of course Little Angel Adler we're going to try our wing at the BC Castle Corn Maze.
What I really want from each of you is your HALLOWEEN Photo for my Gallery. Give it a try, edit yourself with a scary, funny or cute costume on, and I'll pick it up and post it for everybirdie to enjoy. For any of you birdies who have a little trouble with editing Momma Deb has agreed to HELP ME edit a photo for you. What I require is !) a clear photo of you in all your beautifulness, and 2) a costume idea or theme. Now, if you like surprises just the photo will do, and we;ll see what we can come up with for you. It does take time to complete all the photos so be patient please. My Momma Deb had a horrible month with our fister Sassy so critically ill, and her flight to Rainbow Bridge..
My handsome frother Mr SKY has said he will pick up the Spotlight blogs after the month and share all the information with you that I have researched. We think my Momma needs to laugh and have fun too now. She cries a lot right now. So, everybirdie get ready for some eggciting, spooky and terrifying adventures in October. You too. I watched the Macaw Guards busily working on it this morning and might I say it sure looks difficult. I hope we make it out ok.
Jesse, stands staring into the corn maze opening. A sense of fear and dread runs up and down his spine. The birdies gather close around him, peering into the high stalks of dried corn. Wide, frightened eyes look from one to another. No birdie is ready to take that first step into the maze. SKY comes strolling forward, intent on being the leader into the Adventure. He walks boldly up to the entrance then suddenly comes to a stop, feathers ruffles, head feathers standing on end. He looks into the blackness, then turns and looks at the others standing bathed in bright fall sunshine. Turning slowly back, he looks once more into the Corn Maze. It is totally black inside. No light. Yet nothing to block out the light. " Ok, Jesse, you lead on" Sky states, stepping carefully away from the scary darkness.
Jesse takes a deep, nervous breath, and moves slowly forwards. The others hold back for a moment before moving behind him as one large bird. Each birdie staring in the abyss ahead. Little Angel pushes past Sky and BB, and comes up beside Jesse. She looks at the Corn Maze. " Oh, come on everyone" she heads boldly into the entrance and walks carefully along the edge near to the wall.

  October's BOTM POST number ONE
Hello every birdie, my name is Jesse, a double-yellow headed Amazon, from the Sky Flock. I am your October BOTM candidate. This month I will be exploring many new and important developments in the avian world, as well as eggploring some controversial techniques and methods used presently and in our past all in the name of profit. I know that you will be both encouraged, and shocked at what we will discuss this month. Some of your parronts might need some Kleenex too as we look at my most important subject--" at what cost?"
Before we get started I want to take a few minutes to thank everyone for all their support, and daily votes for my fister Queen ANGEL GIRL.The words of condolence sent for the loss of our beautiful Umbrella Cockatoo Fister Sassy have touched my Momma's heart and have helped her through the last days. Because of Sassy's critical illness last month, Momma Deb's attention and energy was given to what mattered the most, loving and caring for Sassy. Thank you all for supporting my Fister even when blogging was last thing on our minds. She promises to make up for it this month by holding a fun SCOTTISH FESTIVAL to be announced.
I will work diligently to both entertain and inform you as the month progresses. October looks to be a very busy month, with our Canadian Thanksgiving and of course Halloween. Our BOTM campaign month will include a fun Halloween SPOOK-TACTUAL PARTY. I trust you shall enjoy our month spent together and I look forward to meeting many new friends, and blogging daily with lots of my long time friends too.
My history is rather ordinary compared to others int he Sky Flock. I lived with my first daddy and mommy most of my life. My daddy became ill, and went away and never returned. I missed my Daddy whom I loved early and became very angry. My Mommy did not understand me, and became afraid of me, and put me into a small cage in a far off corner to "protect" the Grandchikldren. I hated it and became even more aggressive and angry. Finally I was sold to a lady who loved me, but did not understand me, and when I bit her aggressively posted me for sale once more. Momma Debhad always wanted a DYH Zon and saw the ad. I was the second larger parrot to move into what became the Sky Flock. Momma has had to work hard with me about my biting, and I still do if given the chance. However, I have my very own room to fly in, a best buddy Ollie, a Quaker, a TV and lots of love. Momma says I am 200% better then the day I arrived. It just proves that hands-off parrots can be greyt companions too. I have my forever home.
Tomorrow we will begin by looking at some very controversial methods used to stop biting in companion Parrots.
with love and hugs
Jesse 227428

  Hi Max
thankyou for coming to my HOF party

i am so behind in my blogging it is unbelievable. i want to thankyou for your support in helping me be inducted into the 10,000 HOF.the morning of the day i achieved my 10,0000 vote mom was called to the emergency room at the hospital because 92 year old g-ma fell and broke her hip. there went my typist. her husband is 97 "our step g-pa" and needed moms support also. he is still driving and mom made him go home before it got dark out. then mom had to stay and feed g-ma who could still eat and drink until 12 pm that night. g-ma also insisted mom stay with her all night so mom did. the surgery was then scheduled for 3pm monday so mom came home fed us did 2 or 3 blogs and then went back to the hospital. g-ma came thru the surgery beautifully but is somewhat confused at this point and seems to think her dog which died many years ago is coming to the hospital to see her other than that she is sharp as a tack "sort of". she is a tough old bird and our dad says she will outlive all of us. anyway after the surgery a torrential downpour occurred where we got 2 inches of rain in 1 hour. this caused all the roads to flood. mom was worried about g-pa driving home in this but he made it amazingly. mom waited until the rain topped and g-ma was back in her room before heading home where she had to drive through 3 feet of water. her Kia did good job because mom was afraid she would float away in it. anyway by the time she got home she was completely exhausted. so it is only now that i am getting my thankyou notes out. anyway the party is going strong and i hope you are enjoying yourself. its crazy also with all the pigs running around that all the birds who are racinng in the pig milonga brought with them. actually they are better behaved that some of the birds who at this point maybe should be drinking some coffee. but i say party on, eat enjoy and have fun being with all our friends.

love Cori

  Hello Max
Hello to all my BC friends. Casey here with today's blog. I was squawk-atieled all day on Sunday. It is working today so here I am with the continuing Adventures of Casey & Kiddo.
Thank you all for your votes of support. It means a lot to have such wonderful friends as all of you are to me.
Casey is startled by the amazing beautiful before him as he takes in the waterfalls, the vines and the lovely pond covered by water Lilies. Grabbing a close by vine, Casey climbs up to get a better look at the scene before them.
"Kiddo, come on up here. The view is amazing" Casey leans down and calls as loud as he could to be heard over the rushing waterfalls. Kiddo grabs a vine and carefully climbs up to where Casey is perched high above the jungle floor.
"Isn't it beautiful Casey?" Kiddo asks, smiling as he sees the wonder in Casey's eyes.
"It is indeed. I am so happy you brought me to this place." Casey carefully scans the leafy canopy for signs of danger.
"We better get moving on Casey" Kiddo says, starting to work his way back down the twisty vine. Casey sighs and follows closely.
With one foot on the ground, the other still clinging onto the soft green vine. Casey stops dead in his tracks. The air echos with his terrified screams of fear.
Kiddo looks quickly around the area where Casey is staring wide-eyed into the under growth.
" WAIT! DON'T BE AFRAID" comes the loud, unknown voice. " I won't hurt you my name isssssss.............."
Casey scrambles to reach the highest branch of the tree, from which the vine has entwined itself. Nervously looking down he sees that Kiddo has reached the jungle floor. Before Casey can call out to him, a HUGE monstrous-sized Tiger appears from the dark shadows. Kiddo stands watching as the Tiger plods towards him.
"KIDDO RUN!!!" Casey screams as he finds his voice. " Run! The tiger is going to eat youuuuuuuuuuuu!"
Casey covers his frightened eyes as the tiger reaches the place where Kiddo is standing. Kiddo disappears from view for but a moment then swings his leg over the tiger's broad back. The tiger roars and purrs with delight as Kiddo pats him on the head and shoulders.
"CASEY! CASEY! Come down here. Come meet my best friend George the Tiger. I brought him here, and created this jungle for his home when I was King of BC..."
see you tomorrow
love & votes

Hi Max. Okay now it's time for some Amazon questions, :) my mom likes me to have full flight feathers, when I went to the vet 2 weeks ago, the vet clip to my wings and my mom was so mad because she did not want my wings clipped! She pills this is just a personal decision and its for my safety. What is your thoughts on clipped or I'm clipped wings? Also when I got home from the vet, for the next week I acted depressed is this possible? And I spend all day with my Mom. When she takes a shower she takes me with her, I have my own custom perch so I can shower too.Do you think I should spend more time alone? I am getting a new friend tomorrow,his name is Ritz, My mom has told you about him, And now we're wondering how to divide up the time and how long do you think it will be for us to get used to each other?our Vet told mu Mom to keep him quarentined (Sp) for 6 months

  (Ö> HiYa Max!
Bet ya was wonderin’ if’ ya’d ever hear from ME again, wasn’t ya?! Well, here I am, like a bad penny, showin’ up at your cage door again … with what I hope is some REAL EGGSCITIN’ NEWS for ya!

So, here’s what we got. Last year’s Officiatin’ Staff o’ The Birdie BazeBol League’ve been mullin’ it over an’ they’ve come up with a Jim Dandy idea to help stave off the cravin’s that some o’ you Birdie BazeBol Players an’ Fans’ve been sufferin’ from, ‘cause o’ the lack o’ playin’ this Season.

They’ve all put their heads t’gether to give us a one-time opportunity t’ play ourselves a little BazeBol THIS summer! YuP! YaHooooo!! We’re goin’ back t’ Th’ Stadium!!! The 2012 All*Star Birdie BazeBol game’ll be played at KEVLAR Memorial Stadium th’ afternoon o’ Saturday, August 18th. Th’ plan is t’ play BazeBol startin’ at 3:00 pm CENTRAL TIME, an’ then party that night at the same time we always party for Th’ Milonga! (Translation for th’ Time Zone Challenged: 4:00 pm Eastern, 2:00 pm Mountain, 1:00 pm Pacific.That’s for the BazeBol Game now!)

So, I’m here right now t’ fill y’uns in on all th’ What-Not’s an’ Why-For’s of how this thing is gonna work. So tuck yer feathers b’hind yer ear holes and listen up ….

Th’ first thing that has t’ happen is CHOOSIN’ TEAMS.

Here’s how that’s gonna work. See this here hat I got in my wing? Well, right over there on that table is a bunch o’ scraps o’ paper for y’all t’ write your names on an put in th’ hat.

BUT THERE’s A CATCH!

There’s only ONE birdie PER FLOCK allowed to put their name in th’ hat ! ! ! I know. I KNOW! But there’s only 12 positions available on two teams so we gotta make it so’s as many flocks get a chance t’ play as possible, an’ this was the fairest way the Umps could think of.

So … Two teams; twelve players each (10 reg’lar positions an’ 2 reserves). One team’s gonna be ALL GIRL~BIRDS and one team’s gonna be ALL BOY~BIRDS!

We’re gonna keep the “HAT” out ‘til July 15. Then those Umps’ll pick the players for each team out o’ the hat … lottery style. An’ th’ positions’ll be assigned th’ same way too … lottery style.

You can bring all your little pieces o’ paper with your names writ on ‘em t’ my page so’s Th’ Kommish don’t miss any of ‘em. Bring ‘em t’ MY PAGE (#66865). DON’T leave your name on Th’ Milonga Page ‘r Th’ Kidder’s page ‘r RanePlayer’s page, an’ NOT on Th’ BazeBol Page ‘cause it might get missed! An’ I ab-si-tively, pos-o-lutely DON’T want that t’ happen!!!

GOT IT?! GOOD ! ! !

Come visit me, (Ö> Charles Riley Jake ~ AaaaaAA! & ..

07/11/2012 02:18.06 PM Report This Comment  
  We also got all yous CheerLeadin’ Types covered too! An’ the same deal goes as for th’ Players: Names in th’ hat; two squads; maximost number o’ birdies on each squad – 6; one squad ALL GIRL~BIRDS (who’ll be cheerin’ for th’ BOY~BIRDS’ team, by th’ way) an’ one squad ALL BOY~BIRDS (cheerin’ for th’ GIRL~BIRDS’ team o’ course!); chosen lottery style. An’ the same rule applies ‘bout only ONE birdie PER FLOCK bein’ a CheerLeader. H-O-W-E-V-E-R, there can be one birdie’s name in the hat for PLAYIN’ and one birdie’s name in th’ hat for CHEERIN’ from th’ same flock. (An’ I don’t wanna be in ANY birdies flock meetin’s when they’re decidin’ which birdies from the flockily get t’ put their names in th’ hat an’ which ones don’t! NosirreeBob!!!)

Now, in case you’re one o’ th’ birdies who weren’t at th’ Milona last Saturday night, you missed what th’ names o ‘ th’ teams’r gonna be. Them ol’ soft hearted Umps decided it would be nice t’ honor th’ most recent Rainbow Bridge Departees in namin’ the teams for this here All*Star Game, just like they honored ‘em at th’ Milonga that night. SO … The GIRL~BIRDS’ team is gonna be called “Th’ Angel Wings” an’ th’ BOY~BIRDS team is gonna be known as “Berts at Bat”. Got a nice ring to it, don’t it?

Th’ Team Line-Ups’ll be announced at th’ next Milonga, July 21st.


So get yer names in the HAT an’ then get out there an’ start warmin’ up them Wings an’ Bats an’ doin’ cart wheels an’ stuff!!!

  Hi! Max,

You're such a handsome boy. So glad you found your Forever Home. My name is Oz and I'm a Rose Breasted Cockatoo. Mommy is my 3rd owner and she says that I'm now in my Forever Home. Guess what? I was taught by my other owners to step up on a perch and that's fine with my Mommy. But when I get scared, I step up on my Mommy's arm. That makes my Mommy so happy cause she thinks that I must feel secure. I don't play any sports but would you like to be Friends with me? Please stop by and see me and my Flock cause we love getting company. Before I go I'm gonna vote for you. Bye for now.

  Ribbit!
hehehe..Hey Max...Blanche here with a very quick hello today. I'm a night bird too! Caymus goes nighty-night way before me. And I mellow down after 8 p.m. anyway and am content to just hang out on or by mom. Especially when mom's laying down I love to stand on her chest with my head curled down which happens to be the exact best angle for head scritches.

Happy Cinco de Mayo by the way! Mom thought about finding a tiny birdie sombrero for me but then she dismissed the idea knowing I'd just rip it apart. hehehehe Big hugs coming your way!

Come visit me, Blanche, Caymus & Peachy (2004-2010) - Thank you for BOTD!.

  Max!
Blanche here to give everybird a status update on the goings on in our flock since we’ve been off BC for a few weeks have lost touch with others along the way. All is great here and mom is giving the Cay-man and I lots of attention and play time as we get ready to host Easter Dinner with the flockily.

Spring is here and we’ve spent lots of time on the back patio watching mom and dad pull weeds and trim trees and make the yard look pretty and filled with flowers again. We occasionally get to go “outside the outside” in our travel carriers to explore the yard and spy on the neighbors. Last weekend mom took our cages to the front drive to spray off the layers of feather dust our Spring molt left behind. I got to stay in the cage while mom sprayed it down…and she finally found how I like to bathe. In the very fine “mist” setting the hose provides. I was very entertaining to the little boy next door and he thought it was funny when I laughed at his laugh, which made me laugh and then him laugh even more….

Then Sunday, mommy went to the bird expo with Mischa and Scrithes’ mom. I must say I’m a bit disappointed by the number of toys she brought back. Only two for each of us! But….I suppose a restocked cabinet of food is a good 2nd place. After all, mom says nobirdy eats with as much enthusiasm as I do! (Although I’m sure some of you out there could probably prove her wrong.)

And I’ve yet to show mom any signs of the Springtime Amazon attitude. She’s actually becoming a bit concerned. Then again, I’ve always been a little “different.” I think mom just sees me as well behaved because, compared to the lean-mean-green-machine, I’m an angel! Well I must be scottin’ along…Caymus has been slackin’ on his Friday Funnies and needs to use the ‘puter to write his column for tomorrow.

Big ‘Zon hugs coming your way…hope to hear from you soon whether it be a quick hello or long visit, a visit from a friend always makes us smile.

Therefore, the Stadium will be opened for a gathering to be officiated by our own Rev. CR Jake <Ö) (I’m sure you all remember him from Asha’s wedding!) beginning at 2 PM EASTERN TIME ON SATURDAY, APRIL 16. There will be an opportunity for anybirdy who wishes to say a few words to do so. And after the memorial service we will have a gathering of food and friends. Bring a covered dish to pass and stay as long as you like. This is our Royal Send Off for Our Fearless Leader. Everybirdy is welcome!

Our Coach Jenny Lynn would love to see as many of the Amazon Rainforest Raiders at this memorial as possible. If there's anyway you can attend, it would mean so much to her.

Sincerely, Your Assistant Coach, AL

Come visit me, Alfie.

  Hey Max
Thanks for stopping by with a vote, and tell mom if she's too tired to blog, that's okay. We try to keep everyone up to date with the flower facts, but if you miss a day and want to see, you can go to Kiddo or Spirit, they have all my blogs to date. Thanks to your dad, too, I appreciate every vote!

Thanks for your continued support. I'm overwhelmed with the fact that you all keep coming back with a vote!
If you like tulips, and who doesn't, a good place to put even more of them than you have now is under deciduous trees, except for black walnut trees. The tulips will grow and bloom before the tree leafs out in the spring. You have to use early blooming tulips for this, though. If you have mid or late season bloomers, they might not get enough sunshine to be successful. Well, see you tomorrow with another flower fact. Hugs, and a vote for you, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Congrats to Kaji!, Peppino, Divo & Falco.

  GAME TIME FOR THE RAIDERS!!
Your Assistant Coach, Alfie McZon here to remind you that we're slated to play in the season opener tomorrow against the C2 White Hawks! Game time is 4:00 pm (EST) but the crowds will be gathering well before that. Come show your team spirit. It works wonders!! Coach Jenny is counting on us to give the AMAZON RAINFOREST RAIDERS a shining victory. Let's do this one for Asha....

See you at the Kevlar Stadium (123746) tomorrow.

Good luck, Team!

AL <ª)

And just so you know, our team pictures are almost done. The Baseball Commissioner's secretary- she's making them for us - she's been mighty busy with all sorts of baseball stuff including our team portraits. You'll receive yours as soon as the team roster is completed.

Come visit me, Alfie.

  Hey Max!
Alfie here. Actually, I'm on my way to Zak's page. I don't have his address but I do have YOURS from being on the same baseball team as you so I thought I'd use you as my key to get to Zak's page.

How ya doin' anyway? Keeping all those macaws and greys at your place in line? I don't know how you do it but you do! Must be a Zon thing, huh. I'm not the only Amazon in the McFlock anymore. Nope. Meet my frother, Mozart. We call him "Mo" most of the time. He's had himself a rough time in life but mom's promised him it'll be better from here on out.

Well, gotta dash. I'm late getting in touch with Zak about cheerleading. Jen'll have my head for being this late! Take care, Max

A <ª)

  Hi ya Max~
How is the day going? I was wondering if you guys have to change your clocks up there in Canada? I do not like having to change the time and I don't see what was wrong with the old time!! It all seems silly to me but I suppose someone thought it was a good idea!
Did you get to visit TiPaul in the castle yet? I bet he needs help with the babies running around there!
TiPaul told me about the man from Peru and it would be cool if one of the babies got to so there. Would it be to hard on mom to let them go??
I hope you all have a great day! Leaving a vote and a hug for you! Please tell the flock and your mom that mom and I say hello!!
With love from Sugar

  Amazon Rainforest RAIDER!!
AL McZon, your assistant coach and 2nd basebird, here to inform you that our newly named coach, the stunning Miss Jenny Lynn, has called our first team practice for this coming Saturday at the Kevlar Stadium (123746). While her original plan was to rouse everybirdie bright and early, I pleated on your behalf (and mine) to move the meeting time to 12-noon CST. If you're not able to make it there for that hour session, show your beak at some other convenient time of your choosing. That'll surely pacify the coach.

For Jen's original announcement, visit the Baseball Page. And while you're there, leave a cheer for your team. Let's put the fear of ZON out there!

In case you'd like to know who you're joining forces with, here's the new roster:

Covering the bases:
1st Macalune 154166
2nd Alfie 11189
3rd Ceasaur 149667

Shortstop Sugar 145943

And in the Outfield:
Right Field Fred 79968
Center Field Ethyl 79968
Short Field Billie Jo 172627
Left Field Max 40581

In Reserve
Andre 53031
Pretty Girl 174032

On the Mound: Jenny Lynn 50146
Catcher Maxie 66311

And introducing, Mozart, Equipment Manager and General All Purpose Bird ie; Bat Bird! (203795)

See you at practice, Max.

Come visit me, Alfie.
