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..

  Hi TiPaul
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

I had a fun day on Thursday, destroying my new toys. I was able to wish Falco a Happy Hatchday and then shortly after ...no BC! I kept trying most of the night and then gave up. 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.
Thank you for the box of nuts and fruits ... I love them :)

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

  Hi TiPaul
Mom made a recommendation to readers in the BC Library (Cookie's page), if anyone likes thrillers/mysteries.
Dinner last night was good, the groupon was for a local Japanese restaurant, but not traditional Japanese, one of those places that puts on a show of cooking on the hibachi. It's called Saga, and the chef came out and cooked in front of mom and her sis. They shared a sushi roll for appetizers, and her sister had a tempura banana for dessert. Mom was much too stuffed to have any dessert, though. Plus, a fried banana didn't sound appealing.
Mom has her mammogram and bone density appointment today. There is a women's imaging center that does both at the same site, so that's where she'll go. They are predicting rain today, but if the walk with the dogs this morning is any indication, it will be another bright sunny day, so pool time again!
I hope you are having a bright sunshiney day with lots of hugs. Hugs from me too, Willie

V4U today. We finally saw our first hummingbird last weekend, and we've been seeing the same hummingbird every day since. We only see one so far, but maybe there are more. The mockingbird babies are getting so big. They scamper in and out of the bushes. Wishing you a nice day. From, Mayo

  Heya, TiPaul!
Woo...we were toasty today! It got to 88 degrees, but the humidity was super high, so it felt warmer. The nice part was that it was kinda windy where Mom works, so that helped cut the heat from feeling as warm as it was. Mom did get a walk in though after lunch--she said there were not many sailboats out on the lake today. Guess people are working or something. It was a good day though, and the time pretty much flew by. I don't know anything about time flying, do you? I don't see it. Do you?

It is a gorgeous day today! I think it's the best one of the week. Tomorrow we're supposed to get thunderstorms again. Usually by this time in July the grass is brown and dry, but everyone has green grass still. Mom has some grocery shopping to do, but it can wait. She needs to buy fresh fruits and veggies, but we have enough to tide us over for a few days. Today is definitely a pool day, and tonight mom and her sister will go to a Japanese restaurant for dinner. Mom bought a groupon a few weeks ago and wants to use it before it expires. Tonight will also be cage cleaning night, so we all have to be prepared to fix up our homes as soon as mom is done destroying them.
I hope you are having a bright and beautiful sunny day and getting lots of attention that you deserve. Hugs, Willie

We are due up for hot and humid tomorrow. It was lovely here today, with a wonderful breeze and not as humid as they predicted. Would be lovely if things are nicer tomorrow, but at least one day was hot and NOT humid! Even though it was warm, Mom took her walk down to where she can see the lake, and that haze over the horizon sure seems like we are gonna get that icky weather. Good day for sailing--Mom wishes she were out there on the boat!

Just a quick note today to let you know we're thinking of you. Mom cleaned the skunks, foxes, groundhogs, and coyotes today, all outdoors, and very muggy, so she was happy to get to the pool. We need her tonight, though, so we're making her hurry up with our blogs. Hope you are having a wonderful summer day with lots of love coming your way. Hugs, Willie

Another wonderful day with Mom, though I am grumpy today cuz she did not get up until 8 AM! I was up and ready to go at 7 but that lazybones did not get out of bed until later. Now mind you, 8 AM is not super late, but she is normally up by 7 on Sunday. So I had to wait a whole hour for her! Sheesh. But we had a good day, and now she is getting things ready for her return to work tomorrow, and I am not happy about that at all. So I am velcroing myself to her shoulder. Get me to move? No way.
