News - I got a new home... well not realy. It's a new big cage like Pepper's but the top is like my old one. I can move around more in it and Mom put extra perches so I won't fall. I love it. Mom moved some other furniture to make room for it beside Pepper's cage, where I was before so it was not too much of a change for me.
The postman asked me to take care of his 2 birds over the long weekend at the beginning of September. When he and his wife came back to pick up the birds Monday evening, he saw how well TiPaul was getting along and decided he would do better with us. He is a great bird, but we are still getting to know each other. ***UPDATE AS OF NOVEMBER 6th *** Just over 2 weeks ago, TiPaul decided to jump off his cage again, but this time he was not so lucky. Having less feathers than the average CAG since he breaks them off, and having virtually no tail, his balance is way off. His chest area opened, where he had fallen in the past while with his second owner, who let him heal naturally. I took him to the vet, where he had to be put under and stitched up properly. He was also put on antibiotics for 2 weeks. Well, within of a few days, I thought I had a new bird in the home. He started talking, his firts words being *hello, I love you*, he started clicking like my other CAGs, and he started playing, shredding a cardboard box, and just being a fantastic bird. He has never bitten my partner nor me, and he plays well with Pepper, my other male CAG. Yesterday was 2 weeks from his surgery and we went back to the vet. He is doing great - he has healed perfectly - the stitches will fall out on their own. It seems he did this once before with the first owner too, but was hospitalized and taken care of. You cannot begin to realize how happy I am that he found us and his permanent home.

Hi! My name is TiPaul - Who was 8000??? Who will be vote 9000?

I am a Congo African Grey from Entrelacs, QC.

nope

13 years old   M

Congo African Grey

We're still working on that one. UPDATE: He is taking food from my hands and loves almonds, peanuts and nutriberries along with fresh fruits and veggies.

On top of his cage, walking the floors and on my shoulder

He is still not settled in completely, as he only came to live with us 2 weeks ago. UPDATE: He is acting like a CAG - loves shredding apart his cardboard boxes

She is patient with me and lets me go about fitting in with the other parrots at my own pace. She also insisted that my old cage be delivered here, because I am used to it. UPDATE: It has been 3 months since I have come to live here, and I am so happy - I know what a real flock is all about.

Feather picking and biting his nails.

If it's cardboard, and it's a box, let me at it..

We are getting storms tonight, complete with lightening. and thunder. It sure was icky before that, and Mom and I watched the clouds roll in. She got home later tonight cuz she worked a little longer--meetings all day, and she had a couple of things to do before she left. I am velcroed to her since she got home, as per my new routine. I love it!

I hope you are having a great day! It's very pretty here and there is a nice breeze. It's going to be in the high 80's but that breeze makes it nice!

I have had to use other birds pages to get around BC today. My page won't load! I suppose it's working out okay with me jumping from page to page! At least we all know each other and I can find most of my friends on other birds pages!

Mom brought home a rug cleaner today! She has been saving up for it and thought she would buy it on Senior Discount day next week but it is went clearance last night and the clearance is 50% off this week. With her discount and some gift cards she only paid 23.34 for a 120$ cleaner!! She is very happy to have one because of all the messes Mandy and Merlin make! I of course don't make any messes like that!hehehehehehe
Mom may be very happy but I have to tell you it looks very much like that evil vacuum so I am not thrilled in the least!! Mom says I will not be in the room where she is using it so I suppose it's okay.

I do hope you enjoy the day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

Hope mom retrieved the voice mail mom left, but in any case, she did get the envelope and we thank you very much.
It's cool here today, don't expect the temps to go much above 70. If that's the case, mom will probably scrub the porch railings, since she finally found the Simple Green she was looking for. It's a good cleaner for the outdoor stuff. Of course, if it gets warmer, that plan will die in favor of the pool. It's open for such a limited time, mom likes to take advantage of every day she can go. Labor day is coming too soon! Nothing much else going on; Mom has a tour coming up tomorrow at the museum, and Thursday is the big eye appointment. Gene will be going back to Germany on Saturday, so she'll probably go visit him on Friday. Other than that, the week is a slow one, but we're never bored, and neither is mom. Hope you are having a great day and getting lots of sunshine and scritches. Hugs, Falco

What is up with Lil Bit? Everything okay? Sure hope so!

Mom's meeting at the other campus went well. She got up really early--and then she expected me to be up, too. HA! I was happily sleeping when she uncovered me. Did I give her a dirty look too! I gave her a little grief when she came to take me over to the playgym. Of course, I was sweet after that. But hey, that was super early this morning! Was glad when she got home, and I could velcro myself to her.

Chilly day here, but sunny. Mom says it is good sleeping weather. And I know I will be ready for it whenever she is!

Today is a rainy day and rather cool. I don't think it will hit 70 today. Mom cleaned and fed 13 skunks today, but her record of not getting sprayed still holds, knock on wood! She also took care of those little hawks who are quite grown now, and in the flight cage. (The flight cage is a pre release area for raptors, the center staff makes sure they can hunt, land, preen, do all the birdie things they'll need back home in the wild.) As well as all those, mom also cleaned and watered 3 more juvenile red tailed hawks and 5 screech owls. She also did some dishes and laundry while she was there today. Both of those areas tend to back up quickly if someone doesn't pitch in and help.
After the center, mom went shopping, but now she's home with us, with only one load of laundry to do, so she's basically ours for the day.
I hope you are having a pleasant day filled with sunshine and love. Hugs, Willie

  Heya, TiPaul!
Today was a strange day weather wise. We started out hot and sticky. then we got grey and icky. And it went back and forth between being sunny and raining like crazy. Oh, and the temperature dropped from 83 to 61, but then went back up to 76. And more rain is on the way, and tomorrow we will have a high of 70, with low humidity. That is the best part of it!

It was another fun milonga last night. It was great to see everybirdie there! Mom signed off because of all the thunder and lightning, but we all stayed til the fireworks were done, then went home in Ipo's shuttle. Thanks to Kiddo, Taz, Lizzie, and Sam for another great party!
Mom spent yesterday afternoon at the pool, it turned out to be a gorgeous day. Last night the thunderstorms rolled in right around time for the milonga and continued til about 2AM. Mom was kept awake by Daisy, who is scared of the noise. She was wearing her thundershirt, but she was still pacing and whining a bit. Today it's gray, cloudy, and looks like it will rain again. It might be a shopping day or just a stay at home and clean the porch day. I hope you are having a fun day of sunshine and summer weather, and that you can get out to play awhile. Hugs, Willie

It's been a pretty dark day here with the sun showing up for a few minutes. Then around 3pm ... very dark with some rain. Mrs Fox came to the patio looking for handouts but, I ate all of my dinner. She was so funny, sat down and waited for scraps but, none tonight sorry. Look out PA and the rest of the east coast ... a storm is coming your way. Hope everybird has fun at the Beach Milonga.

It's supposed to rain and thunder today, but the sun is shining brightly so far. Mom has plans either way: If it is sunny, naturally it will be pool time; if it's raining, there is a street sale going on in Oakmont, which is close by, and also she got coupons for Penney's. Either way, she'll be back in plenty of time for us to attend the milonga. Hope to see you there, too. Hugs, Willie

we normally like to blog around 11:30pm and let night we couldn't even get on bird channel. mom stayed up til 2:30am and still no bird channel. then this morning still no bird channel. then around noon today bird channel was back. i hope everything runs smoothly for the milonga tomorrow night since we won't be having many more of them

today was a beautiful bright sunny day. have never seen a day in Pittsburgh were there wasn't one cloud in the sky and a high of 78. its taken Cori a whole week to forgive mom for trimming her nails and i pulled out the rest of my tail feathers today. mom says i now look ridiculous. i did enjoy my short time outside today. i can't take the sun though and prefer being in the shade but there are still plenty of UV rays in the air for me to absorb. also the hummingbirds have finally started coming back to the feeder after a months absence. maybe they didn't like all those nesting birds on and near the front porch

mom was at the store today waiting for the cashier to ring up her order and a woman with 2 small girls was in front of her. the littles girl was whinning for some candy and the mom kept saying no so the little girl picked up a candy bar and bite into it through the wrapper and all and then placed it back with the other candy. the little girl then noticed mom was staring at her watching her bad behavior and gave mom this cutey pie smile. for one of the few times in moms life she kept her mouth shut and face expressionless as she stared down the little brat who then burst into tears and ran to her mommy. mom thinks she taught the little girl a lesson but isn't quite sure what. either don't do that again or to be more sneaky. mom is hoping for the first result. by the way don't ever buy the candy near the checkout counter at any store.

love TiBoo Boo

Friday morning, still no BC! I say we kick that server in the tail feathers! At least the weather is partly sunny and low 70's ... not too bad. Have a greyt weekend.

Thanks so much for the good wishes for my hatchday, but especially for coming over to help me celebrate my special day. The cake and ice cream were luscious, weren't they? I got a new Jungle Talk Cotton Candy, new party whiskers, and my favorite movie popcorn nutriberries! Mom spoiled me all day.
Today mom cleaned in the RVS room, but didn't get it all done. She cleaned the fisher's big cage which takes up half the room, the bat's enclosure, the groundhog, and 8 of the raccoons, but had to leave 4 cages undone. Steph said they'd take care of them, though. It was a perfect pool day, too, so now mom is home to blog, and apparently in time to find BC up and running! Hope you are having another beautiful summer day today and getting lots of love and hugs. Hugs, Falco

It's cooler here today than it has been for a couple of days, only going into the mid 70s today. That's good pool weather though. Mom will spend the afternoon reading by the pool, then do some grocery shopping which is really needed at this point. (She only had 7 things to cut up into the our bowls today.) Later we will celebrate Falco's hatchday with songs, special treats, and maybe a new toy. She's hoping to get her favorite popcorn nutriberries. ♫Happy Hatchday to Falco! ♫ Come on over for some cake and nutriberries later! We can all watch as Falco opens her gifts. Hugs, Willie
