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.

14 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
Not much new here today either. The parronts saw N0n-Stop a couple of weeks ago. Mom liked it but, she likes Liam.
Mom has been wanting pizza for over a week now .... maybe tomorrow night.
HAPPY EARTH DAY! We had a cold day of 33 degrees with snow flurries. Hurry summer!

  Hi Ms Alex
So you liked our Easter egg hunt ... hehehehe! Sounds like a good time at your house. We had a nice one too. We had an extra person here, skinsis's boyfriend.
Now, we have to get ready for the derby party and a week later the Milonga derby.
It was just another dreary day today. Little darling, it’s been a long cold lonely winter … here comes the sun … lalalalala. I hope so!
The vet says that Blue (54066) is doing greyt but, has to wait 2 more weeks before the stitches come out. She still needs prayers.

  Hi Ms Alex
At least you can see your yard. Did you see the new pic that dad took today of mom in our driveway? Those are eggs on top of the snow.
My dad messed up hard boiling the eggs to color too. What's with dads and eggs???
I'm so happy for you that the oven now works. That is a pain to deal with.
We had a rainy Easter of 51 degrees. The bunny left me two wood toys. They sure were fun. At least I have memories of them … hehehe. Hope you had a wonderful Easter.

YAY! So happy to hear that your mom's accounts are fixed. My mom won't use PayPal after the problem she had with them years ago.
So, the oven will be fixed in time for Easter, sounds good to me.
UPDATE: Blue’s (#54066) stitches will be removed on Monday. Her side is very tender and she’s using her right leg very carefully. Please keep her in your prayers.
I wish every bird and family a very HAPPY EASTER. Let’s hope this starts some warm weather.

  Hi Ms Alex
I sure hope that fraud problem gets fixed right away. Maybe the stove part will come sooner.
This has been a busy week for my parronts. I hope we can get everything done for Easter on Saturday.
The new cushions for the patio furniture came today. Too bad the patio is snow covered!
Don’t forget the Milonga on Saturday night ~ the viewing of the hats for the derby contest.

I just heard the sad news that Lupe (226033) has gone over the rainbow bridge. This has been a very bad “season” for too many birds. Fly free Lupe.

  Hi Ms Alex
Oh no! What a mess with PayPal! I hope everything gets fixed real soon. We had to get a new credit card because of Target. We were not liable cause it was a credit ... had it been a debit card ... you are out of luck! Mom had lots of problems with PayPal years ago. It took 3 years to get it fixed! They need to come up with something better, too many are getting hacked!!!
My parronts enjoyed 12yrs too. It's a true story but very sad, great acting.
Well, it’s official; our little area received a total of 200 inches of snow this season. We won for the most snow in the Lower Peninsula! I feel so lucky. The record was 183 inches. At least it’s slowly melting and we can see some bare spots on the top of the sunny hill. Looks like Easter Sunday will be rainy and maybe 50 degrees. I hope the Easter Bunny wears his coat and boots when he comes to visit.

  HI ALEX
HOPE YOU CAN GET THAT RESOLVED QUICKLY WITH THE STOLEN PAYPAL ACCOUNT. THATS WHY MOM NEVER USES A DEBIT CARD. WE HAVE HAD OUR CREDIT CARD NUMBERS STOLEN MANY TIMES AND THE CREDIT CARD COMPANYS ARE VERY GOOD AT CATCHING ODD TRANSACTIONS. THE DEBIT CARD ALLOWS DIRECT ACCESS TO THE CHECKING ACCOUNT AND THEY CAN WIPE YOU OUT BEFORE YOU KNOW WHAT HITS YOU. THE FIRST TIME OUR MASTER CARD WAS STOLN THE PERSON WAS PAYING FOR TAXI CAB RIDES AND HAVING PIZZA DELIVERED TO THEIR HOUSE SO THEY WERE EASY TO CATCH BY THE CREDIT CARD COMPANY. MOM CANCELLED THE CARD ANYWAY. THE PAYPAL CREDIT CARD WAS BEING BILLED FROM SOMEONE IN SPAIN BUYING THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS WORTH OF TRAIN TICKETS. THE PAYPAL CREDIT CARD WAS STOLEN A SECOND TIME AND IT WAS SOMEONE GETTING BREAST ENHANCEMENTS IN HONG KONG. DADS MASTERCARD CREDIT CARD WAS STOLEN FROM SOMEONE IN GERMANY BUYING OPERA TICKETS AND TICKETS FOR A EUROPEAN CRUISE. ALL CARDS WERE IMMEDIATELY CANCELLED BY THE CREDIT CARD COMPANY AND NEW ONES ISSUED. WE DO A LOT OF INTERNET SHOPPING AND HAVE LEARNED TO ONLY USE SECURE SITES THAT ACCEPT PAYPAL OR AMAZON. OTHER THAN THAT WOULD MUCH RATHER HAVE A STATEMENT SENT TO THE HOUSE LISTING ALL THE MONTHS CHARGES. LUCKILY EVEN THOUGH MOM HAS A CREDIT CARD FROM TARGET SHE NEVER USED IT AND IT FINALLY EXPIRED. AT LEAST WITH A REGULAR CREDIT CARD THEY DONT HAVE DIRECT ACCESS TO YOUR BANK ACCOUNT. IT IS A REAL PAIN STRAIGHTENING ALL THAT OUT AND HOPE YOU =R DAD DOESNT GET TOO FRUSTRATED BY IT.

Wow! First the chimney had to be looked at and have a minor repair. Now, the stove needs fixing. Why is it that things seem to go in 3's ... look out, what could be next?? Good luck.
Looking forward to Thursday’s mid 40’s but not the rain/snow mix. I sure hope that is it for the snow. Hey, it’s almost Easter! I don’t think the Easter bunny will get around in the deep snow very well. It did melt a little more.

What a beautiful day we are having for our trip. Everybirdie is having such a good time. There is an activity planned for each night on the boat.

Last night, there was music and refreshments, just a time of fellowship for all of us to get to know one another better. Refreshments will be served all day today as well.

Tonight, we are going to see the movie Rio 2. There will be fresh popcorn and drinks for everybirdie.

  Hi Ms Alex
Sounds like your parronts are pretty busy. As for boot camp, no thanks not for me.
That is wonderful ... NO aftershocks. Hope you are done with that for a lifetime.
My parronts took a fast trip downstate to pick up a china cabinet from an auntie that is now gone. I didn't get to go cause it's too cold.
I’m back! Mom was late getting home tonight. But, it’s ok because she came home with a bag of chew toys for me. We had two days of snow and cold. Today was 24 with the nights down to 11 degrees. I hear that mom saw grass and some flowers downstate must be nice!

  HI ALEX
WONDERFUL YOUR DAD PASSED HIS SELF DEFENSE COURSE WITH FLYING COLORS. DID HE ALSO PRACTICE SHOOTING BAD TARGETS AND NOT SHOOTING THE GOOD TARGETS.

WE TRIED TO WATCH THE ECLIPSE OF THE MOON LAST NIGHT. IT WAS A CLEAR STARRY NIGHT UNTIL 1AM WHEN THE ECLIPSE STARTED AND THEN THE NIGHT SKY QUICKLY FILLED UP WITH SO MANY CLOUDS YOU COULDNT EVEN SEE THE FULL MOON. WE WOKE UP TO LOTS OF SNOW FLURRIES THIS MORNING. ITS BEEN A COLD MISERABLE DAY. TONIGHT ITS DROPPING DOWN TO 22.

THE PLUMBER CAME THIS MORNING TO FIX THE GARBAGE DISPOSAL. HE COULDNT BELIEVE HOW BAD MOMS HANDS LOOK AFTER WORKING TRYING TO REMOVE THE MEASURING SPOON FROM THE DISPOSAL AND TOLD HER SHE NEVER SHOULD HAVE TRIED THAT. HE WORKED AND WORKED AND COULDNT REMOVE THE SMALL MEASURING SPOON. HE FINALLY PULLED THE WHOLE DISPOSAL OUT AND PLACED IT ON THE KITCHEN COUNTER AND WORKED AND WORKED SOME MORE. FINALLY HE TURNED TO MOM AND ASKED MOM TO ONCE AGAIN TRY AND REMOVE THE MEASURING SPOON SINCE HIS HANDS WERE TOO BIG. (MOMS HANDS LOOK LIKE SHE HAS BEEN IN A 10 ROUND BOXING MATCH WEARING NO BOXING GLOVES) MOM ONCE AGAIN ATTEMPTED TO REMOVE THE MEASURING SPOON. NO LUCK! THE PLUMBER THEN SAID IT LOOKS LIKE YOU WILL NEED TO BUY A NEW DISPOSAL BUT LETS TRY ONE MORE THING. HE REMOVED THE DRAIN FROM THE DISPOSAL AND THE SPOON CAME RIGHT OUT. THE PLUMBER SAID THIS WAS A FIRST FOR HIM AND WILL NOW KNOW WHAT TO DO NEXT TIME HE EVER FINDS SOMETHING LIKE THIS AGAIN. TOTAL PLUMBING BILL $118. FOR $100 MORE MOM COULD HAVE HAD A NEW DISPOSAL. ANYWAY EVERYTHING IS NOW WORKING AND MOM WENT TO THE HARDWARE STORE AND BOUGHT A DRAIN COVER FOR THE SINK. WHAT A RELIEF THATS OVER.

  Lifespan of a Diamond Dove
The lifespan of the diamond dove is different in captivity than if living in the wild.

In captivity, the diamond dove usually lives about 12-15 years. With proper care, they can even live into their 20's.

In the wild, however, diamond doves only live 3-5 years.

  Vocalization
Doves are relatively quiet birds. They make a variety of soft, low-pinched cooing sounds. Their cooing, however, may be persistent and repetitive. Many people find the cooing very pleasant.

  Supplements
Your dove should be given a vitamin/mineral supplement to assure you are providing all the nutrients it needs, especially if it is a finicky eater.

Note: Although the directions may tell you to put the vitamins in water, this is not good to do. Vitamins can settle to the bottom or lose its potency. It is best to put the supplement on soft foods or moist fruits or vegetables.

In addition to a vitamin/mineral supplement, doves need a small amount of grit. Unlike most birds, doves swallow their seeds whole and grit helps to digest them.

There are two kinds of grit:

Indigestible grit, which is sand or bits of ground rock. However, if your bird overeats this, it can become sick.

Digestible grit such as oyster shell, ground cuttlebone, or crushed eggshells pass safely through their system and is also a good source of calcium.

That sounds like a fun evening. Glad they enjoyed it. It's good that you had all the attention today. As for the weekend, I wish your dad all the luck, come back in one piece! I will be offline on Monday. Mom will be back from a visit to her cousins on Tuesday night.
It was another pleasant day with sunshine. The next two days will be (we hope) 50 degrees with rain. Maybe that will knock more snow down. Is any other birdie hooked on watching the Pittsburgh Eagle Live Cam? Mom & I watch it all the time. They are so adorable.

I LOVE YOUR DERBY HAT.

WELL MOM FINALLY HAS TIME TO SIT DONE AND TYPE FOR ME. WE ARE SO MAD AT HER. MOM WASHED AND REHUNG THE EXTRA LARGE DRAPES IN THE LIVING ROOM. THE 2 DRAPES ARE 9 FEET WIDE APIECE AND IT IS BIG JOB GETTING THEM DOWN WASHING THEM AND SLIDING THE HOOKS BACK INTO THEM WITH OUT THEM WRINKLING. PLUS WHEN MOM REMOVED SOME OF THE DRAPERY HOOKS SHE FOUND THEY WERE BENT OUT OF SHAPE SO SHE WAS GOING CRAZY SEARCHING THROUGH ALL THE CLOSETS TRYING TO FIND SOME EXTRAS THAT ARE THE CORRECT SIZE. ON TOP OF THAT OUR 2 LONG HAIRED BLACK CAT LIKE TO LAY BY THE WINDOW SO THEIRBODY BRUSHES UP AGAINST THE BOTTOM OF THE DRAPES AND THEY WERE FULL OF CAT HAIR(THE DRAPES OF WHITE) SO MOM HAD TO USE A LINT BRUSH ON THE DRAPES BEFORE PRE-SOAKING THEM, THEN WASHIG THEM AND DRYING THEM AND THEN USING THE LINT BRUSH AGAIN ON THEM. THE DRAPES COVER OUR 2 DOUBLE GLASS SLIDING DOORS SO WHIE THE DRAPES WERE BEING WASHED AND DRIED MOM WAS WASHING THE WINDOWS AND VACUUMING UP CAT HAIR.WE WERE QUIET AS A MOUSE WHILE WATCHING MOM DO THIS. IT WAS EXHAUSTING TO SEEAND I AM SURE GLAD SHE IS FINALLY DONE. SHES BEEN WORKING ON THEM SINCE YESTERDAY. NOW ONLY THE SMALLER DRAPES IN THE DINING ROOM NEED TO BE DONE. PLUS DAD IS HAVING A SEVERE VERTIGO ATTACK AND IS HAVING MOM WAIT ON HIM HAND AND FOOT.

  A Healthy Diet (Continued)
PROTEIN

In addition to fruits and vegetables, you need to include protein in your dove's diet.

Insects are a good source of protein, although they are not necessary for your dove. You can either give them live insects or dried ones.

Another good source of protein are chopped hard-boiled eggs. This is important for breeding doves that are raising chicks. Crushed egg shells mixed in with the egg will provide calcium with the protein. Note: Eggs must be cooked thoroughly. Your bird can become sick from partially or uncooked eggs.

You can also give your dove tiny bits of thoroughly cooked meat or bits of cheese. However, this should be given only rarely and as a special treat.

What a day you had! Cars are a pain sometimes. I'm glad that it is fixed and ready to go. We haven't seen that movie, good to know it's a good one. I myself want to go see RIO 2. But, my parronts say I have to wait to rent it as they won't let me in the theatre ... unfair to birds!
Well, another trip for your parronts on Monday. I might be in lockdown on Monday, not sure yet.
Not much going on today. It rained most of the day. The sun came out at 4pm and we looked out to see if any snow melted, not much.
Hugs
Chyna

  A Healthy Diet
FRUITS AND VEGETABLES

Although all common pet doves are in the seed-eaters group, there are additional foods that can be a part their diet.

Seed-eating doves cannot tolerate large amounts of high-water-content foods. However, a daily treat of fresh food is fine for most doves.

Fruits and vegetables are a good source of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. When choosing produce, (one's that are safe for birds) bright colors are the healthiest choice. Example: sweet potatoes are more nutritious than white potatoes, red peppers have more vitamins than green peppers, and red grapes are higher in antioxidants than green grapes. Dark leafy green vegetables are also nutritious.

Some of the most favorite foods of the dove include:
shredded greens, grated carrots, finely chopped broccoli florets, diced apple, berries, fresh corn and peas. Your dove may not like all these foods, but as you experiment with differents ones, you will find that they may be some of their favorites.

  HI ALEX
WE JUST LEARNED SOMETHING NEW TONIGHT FROM A 14 YEAR OLD KID FROM ENGLAND WHO WAS ON THE DAVID LETTERMAN SHOW BECAUSE HE BUILT A NUCLEAR FUSION REACTOR IN HIS GARAGE. HE IS TRYING TO MAKE THE NUCLEAR FUSION REACTOR BETTER AT PRODUCING ENERGY. WHAT IS USED TODAY ARE NUCLEAR FISION REACTORS. NUCLEAR FISION SPLITS THE ATOM CREATING TONS OF RADIOACTIVE WASTE THAT THEN MUST BE DISPOSED OF PROPERLY. OF COURSE WE HEAR THE HORROR STORIES DAILY OF ILLEGAL DUMPING OF NUCLEAR FISION WASTE MATERIAL INTO OUR DRINKING WATER AND ON OUR LANDS. A NUCLEAR FUSION COMBINES THE ATOMS AND CREATES NO WASTE RADIOACTIVE OR OTHERWISE. STRANGE HOW A 14 YEAR OLD HAS A BETTER UNDERSTANDING ON
WHAT WOULD BE BETTER TO USE FOR ENERGY THAN ALL THE ENERGY COMPANIES NOW IN EXISTENCE. HOPEFULLY THAT KID WILL BE OUR SAVING FUTURE!

HAPPY HUMPDAY

LOVE BOO BOO
