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
Well, we didn't get much done on Sunday either ... cause of all the storms we had! There is always tomorrow. Too bad we couldn't send the rain water out to CA! We sure had plenty. But, I wouldn't send the nasty scary part.
Did your dad get those critters yet?
I hope all our dear friends and family are all ok from the fires in CA, floods in FL and the super storms on Sunday in northern MI. There is so much clean up here and will take weeks in many places. We had windshears of 100 mph. One beautiful town has been cut off, can't get in or out. They are working on cutting a path thru all the many trees on the roads to get people to a safe place. We were lucky this time and only had a couple of trees down and debris that we could move to get out. We had a little sun today before the rain. It has really cooled down after the all day storms on Sunday.
Have a good night.
Hugs

  Hi Ms Alex
Your dad was sure busy ... isn't he really tired today?
I wish I could send you all the rain we got here today. We were sure hit hard. One town was hit so hard that no one can get in or out.
Our northwest corner of MI was hit hard today (we are ok, just a couple trees and limbs are down). We had severe t-storms on and off all day. The wind had gusts up to 70mpr. Several trucks and campers were knocked over on the Mackinac Bridge so, it was closed. Hope it calms down as I need to get to sleep on my perch. Hope you are having a peaceful storm free night.
Congrats to American Pharoah (Triple Crown Winner) had another amazing win today at Monmouth Park NJ.

  Hi Alex
What Can We Do for Birds in Summer?
In some parts of the country, summer can be quite dry. With global climate change, droughts are becoming more frequent. Natural sources of water have dried up. Creeks run low or underground. Rain is scarce, and temporary puddles are gone. And birds need water – to bathe and to drink.

A clean bath with sloping sides is a great way to start. Be sure to hose it out every day, otherwise the water will become stale and dirty, and mosquitoes may lay their eggs. OK, it's a fact: birds poop in their baths. And a robin taking a bath can splash out half the water in one go. On a hot day, you may find yourself on hose patrol, but the birds will love you for it.

If you have the time and inclination, go one step further and offer two or three birdbaths. Larger birds need deeper baths, which might pose a danger to small birds. An inch of water – or even less – is ideal for small birds. A wide, shallow birdbath that deepens a bit in the center will suit a broad range of birds. And some birds like to bathe closer to the ground. Certain shy birds will visit a birdbath set flat on the ground, but may shun a birdbath on a pedestal. (Just keep an eye out for cats! When a bird is refreshing itself in the spa, it's an easy mark for a cat.)

Want to really spoil your birds? Put out a mister, and watch the smaller birds – including chickadees, nuthatches, warblers, and especially hummingbirds – flit in and out.

love Boo Boo

  Hi Alex
We often call the solstice "Midsummer," but it's actually only the beginning. August 1st is Midsummer. the birds have stopped singing. No longer are we awakened at 4AM by the dawn chorus.

Many birds – wrens, robins, and others – may raise more than one brood in a breeding season. Depending on what part of the country you call home, your local birds may still be feeding fledglings, or those young ones might be completely independent by now. This is the time of year when a lot of birds begin to look shabby. Crows are missing feathers, and male Mallards look almost like females. [Listen to Male Mallards Disappear] Northern Cardinals and Blue Jays can be positively bald! It's their annual molt. Or one of two or more for some birds. American Goldfinches lose their bright summer colors in order to blend in with their dull winter surroundings. They'll molt again in the spring to show off those bright yellow feathers.

Some birds even lose the ability to sing after the breeding season is over. The part of the brain used for singing shrinks to lighten the bird's body mass. During the non-breeding seasons of fall and winter, most birds don’t need to sing to establish a breeding territory and attract a mate. Their lighter body mass makes them more agile and thus more likely to evade a predator during their winter foraging

It's always something that needs fixing or replacing in a house. Have fun with that!
I wish I could see that K9 officer and his dog get the award! That is so greyt! I hope you have a pic of that team for your page.

It was a nice day today. I was busy making wood art. Looks like Sunday will be t-storms all day. That's ok because the flowers and lawn will be happy.

HAPPY TGIF DAY

mom decided to take a break for a little bit and go to the nearby county pool. it was a beautiful day and not too hot but nice and sunny. when she got there they closed the pool because a doody was spotted floating in it. last week when mom decided to go to the pool just as she got there they closed it because they found someone floating in the water. mom doesn't know what happened because there was nothing in the news about it and nothing on the internet. there sure were a lot of police and ambulances called so maybe the revived the person.

That sounds like a yummy dinner. We love BBQ at our house!
That is so cool you have a K9 officer at your station. Try to take some pics too so we can see him.
Today was 79 and cloudy. It rained a little and then the sun came out. By late afternoon, we had a mini t-storm with sun after. Then a little rain at dinner. Not a bad day. The parronts got a lot done with my supervision help of course. I think I deserve an extra treat for all that work!

Hmmm, is that Entourage movie the same as the TV series? If so, my dad watches that ... mom doesn't like it.
I sure hate those power outages ... GRRR! That is bad on a hot day with no AC and a cold day with no heat!
The last couple days have been very windy. Today we started our cool down. It was 80 and maybe Friday will be 80 but then we will end up at 70 in a week. I guess summer is over :(

  Hi Alex
HAPPY HUMPDAY

98 degrees at our house today. mom said too hot for us to go outside. instead mom went to visit her mom who turned 94 today at the nursing home which is about 15 miles away. lots of road work being done so there was a lot of car lines. mom had just crossed one of the bridges over the Allegheny River and traffic had backed up so mom stopped her car but the truck behind mom didn't notice and came barreling down on moms small car. mom thought well this is it. at the speed he is going he will probably knock us right off the bridge into the river. mom braced for the impact. suddenly the driver noticed all the cars including moms were stopped and slammed on his brakes. he must have been a terrific driver because the truck spun sideways and turned completely backwards as his big truck tires screeched on the pavement and missed hitting moms car by about 6 inches with his rear end facing moms rear end (that doesn't sound good does it?) all mom could do was sigh and say thank god. the truck driver looked at mom for a moment and then sped off in another lane and exited the bridge. g-ma was crabby and upset that her deceased mother and sister hadn't gotten there yet for dinner and said what a wasted day it was. mom gave g-ma her b-day card and g-ma threw it on the ground. all mom can say is she is she is glad she is home now.

That sounds like a long and busy day for your dad. I wouldn't want to be stuck in the dark with just one computer either. Hope that doesn't happen again.
It was only 88 today. We didn't see the sun until afternoon. There was a lot of coming and going today but, mom remembered and cleaned my condo and my beautiful chewed wood collection! I'll have to start over.

it seems the west nile virus was found in a mosquito here so the city has already been spraying and never announced it. no one has contracted west nile but they are merrily spraying anyway. tonight they sprayed some of the city from a truck.

Even with all the rain we have had it has now become so dry from all the heat that mom has been out watering some of the shrubs that are wilting and thirsty.

I hope you liked the elder gift I gave you (silver leg band with dream catcher on it). You sure don't look like an elder!
Better have Popeye have her patrol out looking for those critters. Maybe hire a gun like Jen Lynn!!!
We are rock n' roll people mostly ... no country for us.
So, you are going to have some rain. I hope you will get enough to help out and green everything up. Your dad better be careful mowing all that grass in the heat!!! Keep an eye on him.
We had another lovely summer day. I can get used to this .... and I will soon.
