I was orginally adopted and hand fed by a very nice human but they brought home a baby human and couldn't take care of me anymore. I was taken to a nice bird store in Bellflower California. I was very lonely until my mom and dad took me home to be part of the La Habra flock, forever.

Hi! My name is ALEX has moved to YouPet.

I am a Yellow-Collared Macaw from La Habra, CA.

Stinker. Chicken Bird.

17 years old   F

Yellow-Collared Macaw

I love peanuts and red grapes.

I love to sit on the top of my cage or just hang out with my dad.

Just like all of my sisters, I don't like being left alone.

My dad brings me out into the living room to watch TV. I love to jump over onto his sholder for some serious beak grinding and wing flipping. Life is good.

I love to play catch. I take my toys and toss them on the floor. My dad picks them up and puts them back in my cage so I can throw them on the floor again. This can go on for hours. I also love to destroy things. My mom and dad gives me lots of wood to chew up so I don't destroy anything important. I also like to make the sound of the Pop Top on a soda can. Sometimes I "open" a whole six-pack at one time.
I like to go "Walkabout" to see what I can get into, like the dishwasher and the freezer. There's a big naked bird in the freezer but he doesn't say anything. He must not like me.
.

If you can reach it, chew it..

  Hi Alex
searching to see who is still left. glad to find you . well we are still here and waiting for the execution. we like you re not giving up the ship and will stay til the end whenever that may be. we will not say goodbye but continue on you pet nd try and make the best of it. one thing about bird channel we will miss is being able to read all the blogs of everybirdy on their pages if we hadn't been able to blog that day. it kept us connected to our friends and kept us informed about what was happening in their daily lives. i guess that will be gone. not really interested in blogging on you pet right now until bird channel is finally gone and who knows when that will be. stay strong and holding our wings together with each other we stay united.

love Cori, Boo Boo, Paddy & Piddy

  Hi Alex
In the great Milonga room There was one red balloon
And a picture of-
the big bird channel family
jumping over the moon
And there were four little birds sitting on chairs
remembering all the fun bird affairs
And a quiet old bird who was whispering “hush” Goodnight room
Goodnight moon
Goodnight birds jumping over the moon Goodnight light
And the red balloon
Goodnight fun
Goodnight sun
Goodnight fun time
goodnight great friends
And goodnight to the old bird whispering “hush” Goodnight stars
Goodnight air
Good night noises everywhere

love forever and ever
Cori,Boo Boo, Paddy & Piddy

having trouble with ads tonight even with ad block. hard to go to different pages. our computer just freezes.

moms been spending a lot of time on you pet trying to figure it out and thenn by the time she gets over to bird channel its too late to blog. this makes mom made and since there are only a few days left before i5 dissolves she will not spend any more time on you pet even though as soon as she starts blogging it makes us very sad trying to talk with our friends when we know our private birdy club is ending . this makes it difficult to just talk about things happening because it doesn't seem as important since we know everybirdy is probably thinking like us. we hope when bird channel dissolves us it doesn't hurt .

love Boo Boo

we are having a very hard time blogging. we feel so sad and know how upsetting it will be when we try to go on bird channel and nothing is there. i don't understand why they just can't give us the website. they don't want it and they are just ending it so they wouldn't lose anything by giving it to us.

mom went to take a shower today. the water was trickling out of the shower like a spray bottle .it took mom over an hour. she finished and checked to see if something was wrong with the pipes in the house . nothing was wrong and no water was leaking. she then went to the post office and saw the whole road was blocked off. no one told her what was wrong. tonight the water pressure is back.

love Boo Boo

we probably joined bird channel around 2007 but weren't very active on it and bird channel took away all our points because of it. then we got back on and would just vote for birds but not say anything. eventually Hulk stopped by and started talking and we talked back and it hasn't been the same since. bird channel came to usat a time when we really needed it. who would have thought we would have made such wonderful connections and become good friends with people we had never even met. many we used to talk to have now left bird channel and we always wonder what happened to them and how they are. some have passed on and we miss the conversations and fun times with them. we have a wonderful warm loving family and it is so very sad to see it end. at least a few years ago when bird channel announced we were going to be dust we had enough sense to start collecting email addresses names and phone numbers. we have dreaded that this day would finally come but knew i5 publishing had no interest in keeping us together. we knew we would stay to the very end and knew it would be hard to say goodbye to all our fun times. its very hard to talk right now as tears are making it had to type.

love you forever and ever Cori,Boo Boo and the very bad budgies Paddy & Piddy

  Hi Alex
want to apologize for being off of bird channel for so long. moms back and side really start to bother her if she sits or stands for too long. as long as she keeps moving she feels better. the big branch they fell and miraculously mixed all the shrubs has been driving mom crazy and for the last few days she has been slowly dragging off to the side of the yard. its almost the size of a tree and probably needs to be cut up with a chain saw. on Sunday night the neighbors were going crazy with fireworks and one neighbor looked like they had a professional fireworks display. on the 4th it pretty much rained all day and the neighbor below us was starting to set off rockets and mom put on the house spotlights and stood right on the side of the yard daring him to shoot a rocket but he just said i guess no rockets will be shot tonight and went inside. before that they were setting off firecrackers on their wooden deck with their dogs sitting there.. in the meantime one of our birdhouses outside which is a head of a cat with its mouth open fell off the tree . when mom checked it was full of a yellow jacket nest and then were not happy to be laying on the lawn. mom waited til it got dark outside and put a plastic bag over the birdhouse and then covered it with a bucket and the dragged it it to the edge of the property . mom is amazed she didn't get stung.today she checked on the bird house and had neglected to remove the plastic bag so mom used another dead branch that had fallen off of a tree last night and lifted the plastic bag off and the yellow jackets were all alive and making quite a racket mom feels her back and side are finally starting to heal because even though it still hurts its not that sharp cutting pain. its been really hard for mom to sleep because no matter what position she was in everything was aching and hurting so she hopes tonight she will be able to sleep better

oh and by the way i got to go outside for about 1 hour and was mad when mom brought me in for dinner.

love Boo Boo

on wednesday considering the size of the oak tree tall timber did an excellent job trying to protect everything in the yard as they cut the oak down. they did damage shrubs that were near the trees being cut. they pulled out of the ground all of moms birdhouses on poles so they wouldn't damage them and mom spent hours trying to get them back in the ground. she couldn't find the holes because the tree falling on the ground compacted all the dirt. the ground is very dry right now and its hard to get anything in the ground since moms seems to have lost all of her upper body strength. it was really hard getting those posts back in the ground. they dug up a few shrubs and when mom replanted once again she evenhad a hard time doing that. all the birds have abandoned the yard at this point. i think they thought once that painter was gone they would be safe. anyway mom was carry a patio table from where they had placed it back to the patio and tripped over a brick that had fallen somehow on the step. she didn't hurt herself because she sort of rolled on her back but she twisted it so she is having a hard time sitting but tylenol is helping. the yard is all cleaned up now. the tree that fell last week smashed all moms iris and lilies plus other flowers like milkweed to attract bees and butterflies. we will see if they come up next year. dad said it didn't matter because it was all weeds and mom wanted to kill him. mom has worked solid for 2 days trying to get everything back in place and is exhausted while dad sat in the house and complained his dinner wasn't ready so mom came in a broiled chicken wings for him. byway mom is glad it is over. they also recommended getting rid of some of the smaller trees that might try and crowd out the large trees so that work will be done in the fall so as not to cause anymore damage then necessary. mom is just glad its over for now.

today moms side is killing her from the fall on Wednesday. she can barely move. at least i got to go outside for about 45 minutes. there was a nice breeze i was in dappled sunlight and the temperature was ideal. mom read her book and then took us inside so she could get dinner which was a tv dinner and mom even had a hard time lifting that. lol

HAPPY TGIF DAY

well we couldn't blog last night because we had no internet. yesterday mom spent lots of time at the office store xeroxing documents, then she spent time at triple A having a notary stamp papers, then she went and bought more file folders then she went back to the office store and xeroxed some more and then went to the post office to mail poa letters to health insurance and mail order pharmaceutical company for g-ma. then a guy came this morning from the Pa dept ar agriculture and sprayed the hemlocks for red spider mite infestation which he said was kiling the hemlocks. mom was very upset because she doesn't like any kind of insecticide. this morning she went to ss and it only took about 5 minutes to change Gmas mail to our house and when SS lady asked for a verification document mom had all of them with her and had to go through everything to find what the lady wanted. when mom came home she spent the rest of the day weeding the along the side of the road and trimming it with a scissor. then some guys came and cut down all 5 of our rhododendrons that were about 25 feet tall. because the the dept of pa agriculture said they had a fungus called root rot which was killing everything so they will be treating the soil next week for that. tomorrow will be a nightmare because tall timber tree co is coming to cut down 3 trees. the 50' oak will take them about 5 hours to bring down and the other 2 not too much time. mom and dad had the place looking absolutely perfect today and mom said for what. tomorrow it will look like a total disaster. mom has some babies in one bird house and figures she will just stand somewhere safe holding the bird house so the mom will come and feed the babies. hopefully the men will dig up a few of the shrubs before they bgin so they won't get damage. the tree is only about 15 feet from the house and there could potentially be damage to the house as well. anyway might not be online since a branch might cut off our power.

mom says this POA for G-mais really complicated. G-pa's son who is his POA apparently changed all G-ma's mail to his address yet he was not POA of G-ma. since mom is legally G-mas POA all these companies want proof that she is POA just so they will forward G-mas bills to mom yet they don't send any forms to tell you want they need as proof. mom now has forms coming out of the wazoo. she has now spent 3 days just talking with G-mas medication pharmacy on how to pay the bills and legally let them know she is POA. she will now make double copies of everything and send one set to the pharmacy and one set to g-mas health insurance and hope that is enough. Gpas son just opened an account for Gma with SS and told mom she can use that to change G-mas address but according to SS that is illegal so mom will then take all the forms she has with her to SS to change g-mas mailing address to her own and hope she doesn't get G-pas son in trouble for doing it the way he did. mom is not going to take any chances and do anything wrong. dad told mom she should start charging g-ma for being POA and for all this work.

last night after being disappointed that the milonga was cancelled we didn't stick around and didn't realize that it was still going on or we would have stayed. mom stayed up to 3:30am watching a foreign german film called labyrinth of lies about a young german attorney prosecutor who brought to trial 18 former SS nazi officers at Auschwitz. it was a true story and quite fascinating to watch. mom was exhausted when she went to bed and was almost asleep when she felt something walking on her leg. she reached down thinking it was a ant but felt nothing. a second later she felt it again but this time on her thigh and after reaching down she felt nothing. finally she pulled the sheet bak turned on the light and found a CENTIPEDE crawling on her leg. mom was too tired to be horrified or else she would have jumped out the window. she grabbed a pillow and bushed it off of her leg and it ran under the bed. mom is hoping Boo Boo the hunter will find it tonight when she is loose in the bedroom. Boo Boo misses nothing.

the storms missed us last night and were mostly south of the city. we just got lots of rain. tonight while mom was on the computer she saw a bright flash and heard a loud rumble. she went outside to investigate and a branch had fallen on our power line but it had bounced off and then fallen to the ground so we didn't have any problems. apparently the neighbors across the street are having electrical problems due to our tree falling last week because the electric company was here tonight restringing cables but not to our house.

  Hi Alex
did you hear that someone illegally went into the monarch butterfly sanctuary in Mexico and illegally logged about half of the forest. the trees on the perimeter protected the inner trees from wind and storm damage. the monarch butterfly population has gone down by 90 percent already. then this spring when the new monarchs were getting ready for their big migration a big storm hit and killed 40 percent of the monarchs there because there weren't enough trees left to protect them.

we are getting hurricane warnings tonight. every time mom sits down to blog dad calls her for something. last night someone hacked into his email and dad was all upset. mom told him to change his email. dad never listens to mom. now someone is sending out phishing emails in dads name using his email. still getting estimates for tree removal. mom is sad that all the years of her hard work and plantings will be destroyed by the guys when they remove the tree.

thankyou for wishing me a happy hatchday and thanks to Lizzie for the most scrumptious hatchday cake ever. i singed Happy Hatchday to me all day long. i am 9.years young today. i hope you had as much fun as i did celebrating with me today today. what makes the day special is being able to celebrate it with the ones you love and that means you. i say eat, drink and enjoy until every crumb and drop is consumed

very humid out so mom didn't take us outside. i think the humidy is 100 percent. moms dealing with problems with social security for g-ma and sat on the phone for 1 hour and got nowhere so next step is to sit in the SS office and wait all day. all for a change of address for g-ma. meanwhile tree people coming and giving estimates.

love Boo Boo the Hatchday Girl
