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

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

Stinker. Chicken Bird.

16 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 Ms Alex
Oh wow! Didn't know that palm trees were so tough! So, dad better get another chain saw ... he sold his!!!!
Wonder if there is a good book regarding gardening with tropical plants.
We still haven't hit 80 degrees yet, maybe this weekend. I have one more vet visit on Thursday for my interstate veterinary health certificate and then all we have left to do is finish packing. It won't be long and I'll be a beach bird!

  Hi Alex
As many as 35,000 African elephants are killed by poachers every year. In the last five years, the elephant population in Tanzania—historically one of the great elephant range states—has declined by more than 60 percent. To the south, nearly half of Mozambique’s elephants have disappeared, again as a result of poaching. And in Central Africa, 65 percent of forest elephants have been killed in the span of a decade.

The elephant carnage in Africa is being driven by demand for ivory carvings and trinkets abroad, namely in China, Hong Kong, Thailand and the Philippines, but also in countries such as the United States. Truth is, the U.S. is among the largest markets for ivory. A trade that kills 96 elephants every day International trade in ivory has been banned since 1989, yet a black market enables the industry to persist, as ivory is smuggled under the table—or rather under tea leaves and other legal products stowed in shipping containers. As demand grows, it fuels the poaching on the ground.

The multi-billion dollar illegal wildlife trade draws in organized criminal syndicates that often traffic other "products," including people, drugs and arms. It draws in reasonably-armed non-state actors such as the Lord’s Resistance Army and Sudanese Janjaweed. It tempts the father of six living in a rural community with few job opportunities to turn to a life of poaching. It enriches the citified fat cat sitting in Dar es Salaam or Maputo who facilitates the deal with regional traffickers or contacts overseas. It corrupts some rangers and law enforcement officers, and endangers the rest. Its sole contribution is the decimation of species, the theft of a nation’s natural heritage and the erosion of the rule of law.

  Hi Ms Alex
My dad is so happy that we will have a small yard to mow. But, the palm trees are new to all of us. We were told that the one tree (3 branches) should come down as it's too close to the house and is laying on the roof. So they are pretty solid trees? I may be asking for info in the future.
It's getting closer to my move, a week from Friday. I hope all the flooding is gone in our area. Our house is ok. I'm getting my swimsuit, flip flops shades ready!

  Hi Alex
mom makes me so mad. she puts me in my outside cage and it makes me very happy. of course if mom doesn't sit there with me i scream for her. mom ttys to read and maybe pick up sticks in the yard to pass the time but after about an hour she comes and gets me to take me back inside. i think mom should sit out there all day with me don't you.?

the hummingbirds are still coming to the feeders but their numbers have slowed down. mom just made a new batch of nectar which should last about a month. we have seen hummingbirds come as late as November. not many but they must be stragglers coming from the north. we got a light sprinkle of rain during the night but we need a lot more.

I wonder if FL has save power days?
We can't wait to get there as it's so cold up here ... this is NOT summer!! This is why we are leaving .... the weather! Just can't take it anymore.
Another gloomy day with NO sun and rain tonight. It did get up to 72 but, didn't feel like it.
I will be off the internet on Saturday night. It's family re-union time.
I'm having lots of internet problems tonight.
Don't forget to cheer for American Pharoah on Saturday's Travers Stakes in Saratoga NY.

  Hi Alex
HAPPY TGIF DAY
vulture populations are plummeting in Africa
Africa's eight vulture species have declined in number by an average of 62 percent during the last 30 years. vultures are one of nature's most important scavengers—a flock can strip a carcass in a matter of minutes.these natural recyclers, which breed slowly and need years to mature, could be extinct in Africa in the next 50 to 100 years.

poisoning from eating pesticide-laced carcasses caused as many as 60 percent of the vulture deaths recorded since the 1970s.When a large predator such as a lion kills livestock, a farmer will sometimes sprinkle poison on the carcass to kill the predator in retaliation, Vultures usually get to the corpse first. They die after eating the pesticide-laced carcasses intended for lions and other predators. Pesticides are poorly regulated in Africa, and sold as "lion killer" . many farmers don't know what the chemicals are really used for.vultures have largely disappeared from commercial farming areas where pesticide are used

Vultures often collide with the wind turbines and are crushed or are electrocuted by power lines

Vultures are also also targets for poachers, who sell their parts to people who use witchcraft. The birds are known for their tremendous eyesight, and many believe their body parts can be used to see into the future.Their brains are ground to snuff by witch doctors who believe the substance has magical powers.

The scavengers also die after feeding on carcasses left behind by poachers. Illegal hunters poison the corpses to throw off law enforcement, which use circling vultures as a beacon for illegal activity.500 dead vultures were found surrounding a pesticide-laden elephant carcass poachers had poisoned leaving the bodies to rot. terrorists groups are profiting the most from poaching affording them lucrative profits to buy guns and bombs

  HI ALEX!!!!
So you like watermelon..It sure is good and juicy...Pecked a V4U...Today for my campaign blog I will be talking about the Casino Theatre and Village Malt Shoppe Mt.Pocono,Pa..It was originally a one story 1922 Casino building used as a dance hall & night club which was converted to a movie theatre after being purchased by a woman from Stroudsburg...Then it was sold in 1974 to three couples one by the name of Mr.& Mrs. George Litz..The families renovated & modernized the vintage structure opening the business 4/4/1975..Less than a year after the grand opening the structure burned to the ground..The new building opened 4 months later 7/1976.A new single screen movie theatre & new ice cream parlor.The new building was built with a slanted floor allowing a modern movie-going experience instead of the neck-craning involved when watching a film from a flat floor..Within a few years the Litzes bought out their partners and began expanding the operation.Today after more than 30 yrs.the Litz Family still own and operate the Casino which is in its second generation. The Casino is now a 2 screen movie house & ice cream shop. It shows first run movies plus still features an old fashioned soda fountain with many flavors of ice cream as well. Plus the Movie Theatre & Malt Shop they added a Sandwich Restaurant, Children's Arcade, Miniature Golf Operation and a Gift Shop with the 1950's theme of decor featuring nostalgia & retro items were added with items featuring Betty Boop, Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, I Love Lucy & other Icons of the 1950's...Well my friends I do hope this might also be something you would like to see while visiting in the Poconos...Have a nice Friday...Thank you all again for voting for me everyday...I certainly do appreciate it...Many wing hugs....CYDNEY :o)

There is still a lot of running around and phone calls regarding this move. I sure hope it's over soon.

  Hi Alex
Michael Vick has just been signed with the steelers football team.

Vick served 21 months in federal prison after he admitted in 2007 that he had operated a dog fighting ring at a farm he owned in Virginia.
Vick admitted in 2007 to keeping dozens of dogs for a dog fighting ring. Federal authorities say many were badly abused and some brutally executed
Federal authorities seized 70 dogs, mostly pit bulls. Many of them showed signs of severe neglect and abuse. Authorities allege he and his friends had brutally executed several other dogs

the disgraced NFL quarterback also neglected his pet birds, allowing one to starve to death and another to go without food and water.
Vick left one exotic bird in its cage to die of starvation and nearly allowed a second to succumb to the same fate. Vick, he had a beautiful pet bird named Junior that he allowed the roam around his mansion.'Mike decided that the home he lived in at the time was too small for someone of his stature purchased a home in the same neighborhood that was more suitable to the growing size of his bank account,'
Weeks later, after he moved into the new house the star football player at his new Atlanta mansion, but Junior the bird was nowhere to be found.
he hadn’t moved everything out of the old house and when he went back over there to check on things, Junior was still there and in his bird cage, dead'
'They had treated Junior like he was just another piece of furniture that they could just set aside and move at a later date.Vick said because he was an Atlanta Falcon player, fans were always trying to give him birds, and so Junior was no big loss.'
a second bird, a Cockatoo called Crystal,was in its cage without food or water at his home. the bird was later adopted even though Vick told her he wanted it back when he got out of prison.

I can't believe those mice are still running around! Time to call out the big guns! This could be made into a movie ... hehehe. I bet your dad doesn't think it's funny!
Remember the movie, Ratatouille? The mice were taking over a kitchen! LOL!
I'm back! My parronts landed in FL during a t-storm and had to run for it (no jetway). They opened the tail of the plane too ... had to get everyone out fast. It was sunny and 86 to 96 degrees ... they loved it! They spent most of their time looking for houses. They found one they liked. Finally on Sunday, everyone reached an agreement and the house was "sold". We leave here in about 3 weeks. I have a couple of pics on the bottom of my page. They came home to non-stop rain and 50 degrees as a high, still raining. Only a few weeks until I'm a beach bird!

Pecked a V4U...Hmmm...Interesting..Today my campaign blog will about the Houdini Museum..The Houdini Museum was established in 1988 at Scranton, Pa. It is in a turn-of-the-20thcentury building that has been entirely renovated.Houdini performed in Scranton and did several special challenges there. His brother, Hardeen, also appeared in Scranton and in its sister city, Wilkes Barre. Documents & letters attesting to this are on display at the museum & on its website. Houdini, performed at the Poll Theater for S.Z.Poll in Scranton, that was part of the Keith-Albee-Orpheum Circut at the time. This would become the RKO Movies Circut. The Houdini Tour, Show & Museum attraction is one of Scranton's most popular things to do and is highly rated. Stories about the Museum and its performers have been featured in recent years on television shows throughout the world. The live show at the Museum includes two of the best, nationally known magicians, Dorothy Dietrich & John Bravo(aka Ray Carter & Dick Brooks). The Houdini Museum covers Houdini's career and facts about Houdini. The Houdini Museum has national & international significance, especially since the tragic fire of an exhibit in Niagara Falls in May 1995. A part of the exhibit was on display for 13 years at the Magic Towne House in New York City. The Houdini Museum features memorabilia, artifacts, mannequins and films of the master magician. The Houdini Tour also includes a magic show as part of the tour...This is another point of interest to see while visiting the Pocono Region..Thank you every birdie who continue to vote for me everyday..I appreciate it very much...Have a great Tuesday....Many wing hugs to you...CYDNEY :o)

  Hi Alex
The bee-harming pesticides we've been fighting for years are worse than we imagined. Research suggests that neonicotinoids aren't just decimating bee colonies -- they're hurting birds too. Researchers found that in areas with high concentrations of neonicotinoids, bird populations declined every year. This means our worst fears are coming true -- neonicotinoids may be moving up the food chain and killing our birds and our bees.
For the sake of the birds, the bees, and the whole food chain, we are challenging one of the biggest neonicotinoids producers of them all: Bayer.It's not just the bees anymore. Neonicotinoids are killing our birds too. It's time to get Bayer to stop producing these chemicals.We already knew that bees, insects, and small creatures that consume neonics are facing a decline in population. Bayer's neonicotinoids are even more harmful: Birds that eat food that consumed neonics are dying too. researchers searched extensively for any other outside cause that could account for the declines: urbanization, other environmental factors, land use changes. They couldn't find one. The only plausible explanation? Bee-harming neonicotinoids. Bayer is trying to write off this scientific study. Because for companies like Bayer, profits trump saving our food chain. By speaking up, we're changing the equation for these companies and making sure they protect the bees.Here's the scary part about all this: until more research is done, there's no way to tell how far up the food chain neonics can reach.major American retailers Home Depot and Lowe's have stop selling neonics. Bayer's lawsuit against the EU for banning this chemical is being challanged-- over a million of us have spoken out against the lawsuit. We've made a lot of progress together, but we're far from done.

  HI ALEX!!!!
Pecked A V4U...Dad still did not get that critter?...Today I will be talking about the Pocono Snake & Animal Farm, Marshalls Creek....Jack Lowris founder of the long-time Pocono attraction, was a police officer in New Jersey who was fascinated with snakes..He decided to open a rattlesnake building & Lowris made his dream come true in 1969 when he built a world of snakes, monkeys, birds and other exotic animals in Marshalls Creek..With more than 100 reptiles & animals to care for the workers at Pocono Snakes & Animal farm keep a tight schedule.. The workers have a strict routine every morning they cut up fresh fruits to feed the animals and fill bottles to feed the pigs & goats..They also make sure that each animal is clean & place ready to go for lots of tourists...Walking into the farm is like walking into a jungle with animals that many have seen on television..The farm houses guinea pigs, rabbits, snakes, alligators, monkeys, a bear, wolf, turtles, a leopard, deer, goats, a mountain lion, a bobcat & more..All of the animals here at the farm are donations from the state, individuals and rescues..None of the animals are wild...At the front door desk patrons can purchase food to feed the alligators, monkeys & other animals..The goats can also be fed with a baby bottle filled with milk..Many of the animals are celebrities or known for their unique personalities & amazing stories...Shelly the 150 lb. turtle is a century old..She once appeared on the "The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson"...Another amazing story Hemingway a male alligator was found in a New York City apartment & rescued by Animal Planet's own "Animal Cops" before being donated to Pocono Snake & Animal Farm...This is not a big building where they are housed but whenever passing it the parking lot is always crowded..Some people do find this a place of interest while visiting in the Poconos....Hope you all are having a nice Monday...Thank every birdie who does vote for me during my campaign to be BOTM...Many wing hugs....CYDNEY :o)
