We met ON THE BIRD CHANNEL!!! Mommy met another quaker owner blogging on the Bird Channel and found out she had 2 blue quaker babies for sale. She and Mommy emailed each other a few times and then talked on the phone. The nice lady sent Mommy pics of her 2 blue babies. Next the two Mommies arranged a time to come and pick me up. Then Mommy and Daddy drove to Ohio on a Sunday afternon and picked me out. It was hard because my fib was very cute, too. But I crawled up on Mommy and snuggled under her chin, so she chose me! (Or so she thinks...I actually chose HER!) And that's where I stayed all the way home, snuggled under Mommy's chin for 3 whole hours! We bonded and she's been MY favorite human ever since!.

Hi! My name is Miss Lucy Blue - Thank you all for your votes!

I am a Quaker Mutation from White Lake, MI.

Lucy-Loo, Baby, Baby-girl,Littl- e Lucy, & Miss Lucy-Blucy

7 years old   F

Quaker Mutation

Nutriberries, cheese, crackers, Great Grains Crunchy Pecan cereal, eggs, pistacios, pecans and peanut butter.

ON MY Mommy ALL the time, sometimes on the boing, or playstand and out on the enclosed porch which is my summer cottage.

Mommy leaving the room without me. Mommy talking to or giving ANYONE attention but me, especially Daddy. I'm very possessive and jealous of my Mommy. (I actually like Daddy, but only when Mommy is not around. Hehe!)

All of the kisses and snuggles she gives me. I know my Mommy loves me more than anything. She talks to me all the time 'cause I'm with her almost all the time. She protects me when I'm scared, too. I just love to kiss my Mommy and snuggle up against her neck! I'm Mommy's girl!

I am potty trained! I don't think that's a quirky habit. Aren't you potty trained? I'll go poopy anywhere my Mommy tells me to whether it's over a wastebasket, the toilet, on my playstand, in my cage or just on a tissue she's holding in her hand. I'm very co-operative. Oh, and I LOVE to play peeky-boo! I'll play under the sheets when she's making the bed or in the towels when she's folding clothes, or even when she peeks her head around the corner at me. Peeky-Boo!.

I'm true blue!.

  Thank you Miss Lucy
For your visit on my BOTD. Thank you for the honor.
Life is still a bit unsettled here. Dad is still not liking 'lectricity. At least we can have some things on, and he just sits at a distance. When he wants to watch TV it is funny. He likes to sit close to the TV to see & hear, and now he needs to sit quite a distance.

  Hi Miss Lucy
The Purpose of Play
All play that wild birds may use helps them develop necessary survival skills. Even adult birds may continue to play and refine their abilities, though not necessarily with the same frequency as juvenile birds play.
Manipulation play helps birds get more coordinated to build nests, capture prey or extract food from different sources. This type of play keeps bills and talons in good condition and builds up the necessary muscle strength and dexterity for intricate actions.
Investigation play teaches young birds about the world they inhabit, including edible and inedible foods and what objects are safe to touch. As birds investigate more, they refine their ability to cache objects and develop their senses.
Chasing play strengthens wing muscles and helps young birds develop greater agility in the air, or for terrestrial birds, strengthens their legs and helps them be more agile when running. This also helps carnivorous birds develop sharper hunting skills.
Taunting play sharpens a bird's reflexes and increases their agility. It also helps them learn to anticipate prey reactions or how to avoid predators, and will be useful for mobbing behaviors or defending their territory.
Balancing play strengthens foot and leg muscles and helps birds learn how to use their wings to counterbalance air currents or disruptions. Balancing can also be useful for different types of foraging or courtship displays.
Curiosity play teaches birds more about their world, expanding their knowledge of both threats and benefits and helping them react to the unexpected. Curious birds can be more adaptable and will be more successful when encountering changes in their habitat.
Mimicry behavior teaches young birds how to act like adults of their species and learn essential skills such as proper sounds and songs or how to use their unique bills or other physical attributes to the best effect.
While different play behaviors all have a purpose in helping birds survive, some birds do seem to play just for the sheer joy and fun of the activity. As with many types of bird behaviors, the exact purpose of all play is not yet understood, even by dedicated ornithologists, but birders can still enjoy watching the playful behavior of birds. Every time they see their feathered friends engage in another game, they learn just a bit more about birds even as the playing birds are learning more about their world.

  Hi Miss Lucy
V4U today. Well, we had a few warm and sunny days. Yesterday the rain returned along with the cold weather. There are freeze warnings for the weekend. This always happens right before Easter, glad we didn't put our deck plants out yet or we would be bringing them right back in. LOL :) The wild birds have returned to our yard, hopefully we'll be seeing some nests soon. The wasps are back, too. LOL :) Have a good day. From, Mayo

  Hi Miss Lucy
RULES TO KEEP IN MIND WHEN OBSERVING NESTING BIRDS
OBSERVING NESTS (PART1)
1)Nest visits shouldn’t last much longer than 1 minute: Please exercise extreme caution and responsibility when searching for nests to ensure the safety of birds, nests, and nest contents; observations of nests should never jeopardize the well-being of birds!
2)Don’t check in the early morning: Most birds lay their eggs in the morning, so plan on visiting nests in the afternoon. Also, most adults will temporarily leave the nest when you are near, and eggs and young nestlings can become cold quickly if left alone in the morning.
3)Avoid nests during the first few days of incubation: If necessary, observe nests from a distance and approach only when the female leaves the nest.
4)Do not approach nests when young are close to fledging: When the young are disturbed during this stage, they may leave the nest prematurely. Young that fledge prematurely usually do not stay in the nest despite attempts to put them back, and their survival rates away from or outside the nest are low. So when young birds are fully feathered and very alert, only observe the nest from a distance.
5)Avoid nests during bad weather: If it is cold, damp, or rainy, postpone checking nests until another day. Checking nests during this time can be very stressful for birds.
6)Don’t check nests at or after dusk: Females may be returning to the nest for the night, and be alarmed by your presence. The exception to this would be owls, which typically leave the nest at dusk.
i hope you are finding these facts interesting

  Flitzer's Monday Musings
Sunday afternoon Dad had a friend over for BluRay Day. They watched Stanley kubrick's long, slow and magnificent film "BARRY LYNDON".
I got bored and played with a spoon and ate seeds. HA.

At "Intermission" [whatever that is] they had Pizza and Wings.

Cold in Buffalo with some unexpected snow showers Sunday morning. Hopefully Spring will struggle it's way back on the stage this week.

  Hello Miss Lucy Blue!
Yes, our mom has a difficult few years. Actually three birds and a cat went the bridge within two weeks. The can was old and the choice was our Mom's. The birds were a shock, especially Siesta. We took a couple of them to our vet to try to find out why but other than an enlarged spleen with no liver involvement we never did learn why. About a month and a half later mom's divorce was final. She got all of us but one. She was so upset at at the time she didn't realize what she was agreeing to or didn't clarify it clearly enough with her lawyer. Mom still has two cockatoos that don't have pages here. They were Dad's but he didn't want them. Siesta was mom's and the sweetest of the three toos. That was a miserable year. Any way, we have a new life now. We thought of you and Louie and wanted to check up on you which is why mom let us on the BC. Got to find Louie the IRN. Feathery Hugs and Kisses, Cera, Cookie, Sweetie, Twinkie, and Jingle. We left you a vote like we always do.

I hope you are having a wonderful day! Lots of laundry being done around here since dad is getting ready to go back on the road. He gets to go to Phoenix so at least it is warm there.
