**~ BOTW 20 Sept - 26 Sept 2009 ~**

I was looking for a bird to keep me company, and when Kaji's Dad took me to look for birds for my birthday, when the clerk brought Kaji over to me, he did this little head-bob thing and climbed onto my shoulder and would not leave it. He chose me!! It has been love ever since! Kaji's Dad is long gone but he gave me the best present he could have (other than leaving!): Kaji. After 19 years, it has been a joy and an honor to have Kaji here with me.

Hi! My name is Kaji ~ Vote ZEENA #255116 BOTM in July!

I am a Meyer's Parrot from West Allis, WI.

Kaji's nicknames are Big Cutie, Turkey-Bird, Kaji the B!

24 years old   M

Meyer's Parrot

Kaji loves food, so it would be easier to say that he doesn't like bean sprouts or radishes. He eats better than most people do. He is a bread bird--he loves Sunny Millet by Natural Ovens of Manitowoc.

Mom's left shoulder, under her shirt if it is winter, his playgym, his "Love Nest" hanging toy--anyplace that he can find to snuggle or tunnel into makes Kaji a happy bird.

Kaji hates balloons of any kind, getting up early in the morning, and not being on Mom's shoulder when she is at the computer.

Mom spoils me--fresh papaya, raspberries, watermelon seeds--you name it, she will buy it for me. And the head and neck scratches are beyond compare! She even preens my headfeathers! She is the best Mom of all, takes me to the bank in the car, to the farmer's market. She even had Grandpa make this three story playgym that I love to run around on. She loves my noises--I ring the telephone, let her know I am hungry by making microwave beeps really fast. I was really lucky she came to the store that day--I have been in heaven since!

Kaji thinks he is a puppy! He will scream "Happy Puppy!" when he is particularly pleased with something. If you say the word "car", he is ready to hop in his carrier at at time of day. Loves to go places and do things with Mom..

Food? Where's the food?
and
I only look small but I am a Macaw at heart!

  Happy Humpday !
It's like summer is on vacation and fall is trying to sneak in under the cover of night ! It's 57 now and only heading to 77 today - is this what they call the dog days of summer ?

Another day of love and play ahead :) I was a little cranky last night when dad wasn't home - I do expect both parronts to be here with me in the evenings ! ! You know the old adage - if mom says no, go ask dad ! ! ! har har har

Missing summer ? There are summer songs over at Name that Tune this week (page 231616). Give it a wing ! love Cookie

So far tonight, no avatar, no aviary, and moving v-e-r-y s-l-o-w!
Mom is having a good day today, thanks. That happens every once in a while, lately a little more.
I think that your new routine of Velcro bird is good! We should all be Velcro birds.
Oh no ... not more storms coming. Mom didn't even look tonight :(
What a day! This morning it was 57 degrees. We finally warmed up to 64 degrees ... yay, what a summer! Mom was gone all day and dad had to feed me dinner. It wasn't done the way it should have been. Dad needs better training ... hehehe.

  Hi Kaji
Yeah,hey whats with all of us not having all our aviaries and avatars!We have lost them before for a couple of days I guess we'll get them back again,I hope!
We had a beautiful day here today with the temperatures at 78 and Mom took us all outside late this afternoon when her chores were done and we all got a nice soaking shower and got to dry off in the sunshine,then we got to join the parronts on the deck while they had dinner!We were outside for three hours and it was so much fun!
How awful that you are getting those horrible storms,that lightening and thunder are like the worst!And especially when it comes with all that mugginess!Your poor sweet Mom must be soo exhausted with all those meetings and having to work late,I don't blame you for being velcroed to her and if it were me I wouldn't let her outta my sight for nothing!
My Mom is going out for the day tomorrow and I will be caged all day again and she probably won't get home til late as usual so my dad will come home and give us all our snacks!
I'm sending you and your sweet Mom all my love and soft beakie kisses!We so look forward to yours as they bring us the sunshine and the love we so need!Yours always brighten our day and theres nothing better than to get them they put a song in our hearts!
Loving you always and forever,my sweet buddy!Love your buddy,Dixie

  Hi Kaji
Yep, my mom agrees that Gloria is prettier than the latest TT. And she has never seen another one that color, which she just loves. It reminds her of the British Racing Green that her brother's TR3 was back in the 60s. She loved that car too, although she never got to drive it. She was too young.

Hey, is anybirdy else missing their avatar and the ones in their aviary? I got nothing! Very annoying!

Well! My mom made a deep dish blueberry pie this morning before she went to the gym. What's the problem, you ask? The morning is MY time! Yes, she did take me out for my sunbath before she made the pie, and yes she did sit in my room with me while it was baking. Just because it is too hot in the afternoons to turn on the oven, I had to give up at least 30 minutes of MY mommy time while she put that pie together. And I only like the crust. She could have just baked a crust for me in much less time than that!

At least after she got home from the gym (and showered), she spent the next hour with me. However I was still mad at her from this morning, so I just ignored her. She sat and read, and I played with my toys. To be honest I was glad she was in there, but I would never let her know. Even if she did fix one of my favorite toys and reattach the bell. I do love those bells.

  Hi ya Kaji~
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!

  Hi Kaji
Hello to all my dear BC friends, Zeena here with today's BOTM POST. Today we will take a look in brief at a touchy subject that has people lined up on both sides of the debate. It involves the breeders verses conservationists. I am not sharing this to side with either group, but as a general interest topic. These are exerts from an interview with Tony Silva a world renowned expert on Aviculture.
Interviewer; In light of all the talk about breeders, verses the conservationist groups, how can we make our legislators, the animal rights radicals, and the conservation elitists, understand that what we as private aviculturists do, is valuable and should be encouraged, not strangled with laws and regulations which in the end, will result in extinction, not preservation, of exotic birds?

Tony Silva: "We need an active, strong avicultural industry. Breeders must be allowed to breed for the pet industry, unimpeded by regulations and laws that simply do not work for us or the birds. The birds we raise for the pet industry supports the work we do with endangered species. And we have to do this, because third world countries don't care about what happens to their birds, they simply don't care. We have to look at individual species like the Spix. If it weren't for private aviculture, there would be no Spix Macaws. And the Brazilian government recognizes this! They say, 'Look, we don't care if we ever reintroduce Spix Macaws. We're just happy that authorities say we'll still have the species around, even if it's not in the jungle. '
Interviewer; Has the establishment of the CITES treaty curbed the explotation of wild Parrots

Tony Silva: I never would have thought imports would stop, because to these countries, birds are a renewable resource. In Southern Argentina a number of years ago, they were packaging up Patagonian Conures in cans and selling them to the Japanese as delicacies because nobody wanted to buy them as pets or to breed.

Look at the Tucuman Amazon. It is so rare they are difficult to locate in their habitat or aviculture. Officials in their range gave permits to shoot them because they were raiding the cornfields . Then there's the Scarlet Macaw in Surinam. It is on CITES Appendix I, but it is perfectly legal to bag up to 3 a day. The natives use them for food. Trade in birds' countries of origin will go on because these people have to survive. There is such a lack of education -- and you're going to tell them not to shoot this or that bird, or to protect this tree! And people won't believe this unless they see it. It's like the Hyacinth Macaw study. The researchers have a few lunches with bird trappers and gives their opinions as first-hand knowledge. But it's not accurate. Without captive breeding many species of Parrots the world over will cease to be in the next ten years. We need breeders to guarantee there will be any Parrots left in the end.

  Hi sweet Kaji, from Queen Angel Christy
This morning when our daddy finally finished the morning paper changing route and food and water dishes, he sat down and powered up this cursed machine! He was so not ready to see his beloved Angel in the BOTD spotlight, he almost lost it! He had just came back inside from his morning prayers at her grave, today will be a solemn day of celebration at our home! There are certainly more beautiful birds in the world, but none was ever more loved, sadly, there can NEVER be another Christine! We have another fabulous day here in Rock Island, give our love to all in your great home, see ya tomorrow...

Love from Queen Angel Christy, Jenny Lynn, & our loving family

PS~We are all so proud of our Toos, their only demand is to be talked to, loved, played with, and have us spend time with them, that don't seem like to much to ask....

I'm glad mom's meeting went well. She found it okay, too, right? I love how you become velcro bird when mom is home. Falco sometimes does that, I occasionally do it, but not often. I like playing too much, I guess.
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, Willie

My Mom sure didn't think that she would get skin sis's hair done right at all and she was a nervous wreck the whole time!That was the first time that Mom ever cut a girls hair!Mom was so pleased that skin sis loved her new haircut!My Mom would be the same way,she'd do her own hair and really give herself a bad haircut big time!
I'm the same way,I hate to get up super early in the morning and I won't budge off my special perch while I have my face right on my Bird Warmer!That was so good to hear that the meeting went well for your sweet Mom at the other campus!But she sure must've been egghausted by the time she got home to you!
We had a dark cold rainy morning with peeks of sun every now and then yesterday,one minute it would be dark as night and then the rain would start dumping and then it would get so hot and muggy,then by the end of the day it was bright sunshine!We all got to go outside and join Mom and dad on the deck for dinner for an hour,but by the time we got out there the sun had just about gone and the wind really kicked up and nearly blew the deck table away!My dad had to hang onto it til the wind stopped and then he took the umbrella off it!
This morning it was very cool but the sunshine is warm and so far its 70 out there!Your Mom is so right about this being good sleeping weather!
I'm hoping to get outside today now that the sun is out and its getting warmer!We haven't been outside for three days again because of all this rain!They had a bad tornado in Revere Beach which is over the Bridge toward the Boston area and what a mess that was!Those poor people all thats left is twisted metal and wood splinters all over the place,they lost everything and couldn't even try to go back to get anything out of their houses,all they have were the clothes on their backs!
I'm wishing your sweet Momma and you a wonderful day today and I'm sending you both all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses!Yours give us the glow of love in our hearts and we love you both more than you can know!Loving you always and forever,my sweet buddy,from your buddy,Dixie Oh,and vote #8991 coming your way too!

Yes, that's what the weather people said .... a cool summer with an early fall and a winter just like the last one!!!!!
I hope you didn't get that nasty storm. It was so nasty. It had loud thunder booms with bright flashy lights in the sky and a tornado watch and lasted for hours! I didn't mind just the rain part.
I agree with you ... don't mess with me when I'm in bed sleeping. The velco bird part is good.
Today was a bad asthma day for mom. I took real good care of her. Outside it was dark and cold (60's) ... it looked like November! This is wrong ... summer is suppose to be warm and sunny. Where is my summer?

I DID GOOD, I DIDN'T YELL AT THE VET BUT I DID NOT LIKE HIM TOUCHING MY TOES.

KACEY EVEN DID GOOD. THE VET TOOK KACEY TO THE BACK ROOM TO DRAW BLOOD FROM HER GOOD WING. NOW WE WAIT FOR THE RESULTS. THAT IS THE HARD PART.

I WEIGHED 125 WHICH IS WHAT I WEIGHED BACK IN THE WINTER. KACEY WAS 98 TODAY AND SHE WAS 100 ON FRIDAY BUT VET SAID THAT WAS FINE.

IT WAS IN MID 70'S HERE BUT THE BREEZE MADE IT SEEM LIKE IT WAS COLDER OUT. SO NO OUTSIDE TIME FOR US.

  Hi Kaji and Lizzie
we don't know what we will do about Boo Boos nest. its a coconut shell that dad wired into a tiny easter basket. then mom fills the nest with alfalfa. the handle of the basket attaches to the top of the cage and Boo Boo swings in her basket when she jumps in it. she always sits in her basket every morning and makes baby sounds for dad who then gives her some canned dog food rolled up into a meatball. since she doesn't have the nest now she didn't make the baby sounds. she only makes them for dad. the bottom of her cage is lined with thick foam so she doesn't \hurt herself when she jumps down. every toy in her cage is a worry because of her bad leg and foot. she can't control it very much and it gets caught on things

i think i must have slept through the months of July and August because with this cool weather it sure feels and looks like fall.today continued with rain and wind with a high of 62 and tonight its 51 brrrrr.

  Hi Kaji
Yes, Mom is glad that Gloria the car is all pretty again. Several of you have asked about her after seeing her in my gallery, so here's her info. She is a 2001 Audi TT Quattro, and she only has 88,500 miles on her which is low for such an old car. Mom was lucky she didn't ever have a long commute, and one year only drove 1.5 miles to work! Anyway Mom bought her back when she was working and making bunches of money; she could never afford such a nice car today. That is why she plans to keep Gloria for a very long time!

I gave my mom a tough time about going outside this morning, but I finally gave in and climbed on her shoulder so she could carry me over to my outside carrier. Once there I had no problem climbing right in; I just didn't want to be interrupted in my meditation I was doing on my big swing. Anyway we got out there at 8:45 and it was a bit cloudy which meant it was not overwhelmingly hot yet. High today in the 90s again, so it's a good thing I didn't mess around too long. By the time Mom got home from the gym at 12:30 it was way too hot. In fact, Mom doesn't plan to leave the house again today. Works for me!!

  Hi Kaji
Hi everybirdie, Zeena here with Monday's BOTM POST. Today we visit a beautiful song bird making a new comeback in homes around the globe. The Pekin Rokin, a song bird of extraordinary talent. I wish to thank all my many friends for their votes and stopping to leave comments on my page. I read them all.
The Red-billed Leiothrix or PEKIN ROBIN (Leiothrix lutea) is usually found in India, Bhutan, Nepal, Burma and parts of Tibet. This species is a bird of the hill forests, found in every type of jungle though it prefers pine forests with bushes. It has also been found at elevations ranging from near sea level to about 7,500 feet.

The species was introduced to the Hawaiian Islands in 1918 and spread to all the forested islands except Lanai. Its population on Oahu crashed in the 1960s and it disappeared from Kauai, but is now common and increasing on Oahu The leiothrix was released in Western Australia but it failed to become established. This species was also introduced in Great Britain but permanent establishment was unsuccessful. It was introduced to France, where it is now established in several areas.
Adults have bright red bills and a dull yellow ring around their eyes. Their backs are dull olive green, and they have a bright yellow-orange throat with a yellow chin; females are somewhat duller than males, and juveniles have black bills. It has also been introduced in various parts of the world, with small populations of escapees having existed in Japan since the 1980s. It has become a common cagebird and amongst aviculturists it goes by various names: Pekin Robin, Pekin Nightingale, Japanese Nightingale, and Japanese (Hill) Robin, the last two being misnomers as it is not native to Japan.
Pekin Robins don't fly frequently, except in open habitats. This bird is very active and an excellent singer but very secretive and difficult to see. It makes a wonderful addition to a mixed aviary with good cover provided. Housing one pair per flight.
The standard fare for Pekin Robins in captivity comprises a mix of dried insect food, fresh fruits and mealworms. they especially like fruitflies and live crickets especially in the breeding season.
Pekin Robins are difficult to find for sale but well worth the expenditure and effort to find them.

  Hi Kaji
Weird weather, right? Thundershirt works for Daisy if mom gets it on before the thunder starts. She still gets nervous, but not as bad. Without it, she paces, cries, salilvates, and just looks miserable. With it, she still paces a bit, but doesn't pant or cry. She still looks a bit scared, but not quite as bad.
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

  Hello Kaji
Gosh last night we sure had some very bad storms. A lot of thunder and rain and Tornado warnings in our area. I don't think Mom was too happy with all the noise, and it kept her up very late. Today's another day, and it's looking better for us.

Come visit me, Cinn-A-Bun.

  Hi Mr Kaji, from your new friend, Mr Limon
Thanks so much for the honor of BOTD! I am so proud to be here amongst all you fabulous BC parrots! I love all the new found attention I am getting, you know us Toos must have constant interaction with those who love us! I have a lot to learn but my daddy says I am as smart as any Too, and I'm learning very fast! I can see sweet LaLo down the hall, and Jen comes flying by like a fighter jet once in awhile! I don't talk a lot just yet, but dad said I don't have to be loved and show love, much like my sister Angel Christy was! Have a great day and give my love to all in your sweet home, Jen will be back on tomorrow, but this is my day to shine...

My love, it's new & forever, Limon TooMan & my new Dallas family

Good morning ! I'm finally here - this is the second day in a row that we woke up to NO cable/internet ! During the night some really wicked storms came through - one KA-BOOM at about 3:40 was so loud it must have hit something ! As long as it didn't do any damage - there were no sirens so mom is hoping maybe just some minor damage . . . if any.

Well, mom's kitchen vacation is over :( Tonight she starts cooking again - bbq chicken and corn on the cob :) Nice going mom . . . find something daddy can cook ! har har har

Have a great day ! love Cookie

  Hi Kaji
Well, we got kicked off the Milonga and then blogs were disappearing and then re-appearing and the songs were doubled and the page was jumping. Mom checked on other sites and we were good ... just happening on the BC.
Mom is still trying with that harness thing ... I hate it! You should see how fast I can move away from it.
The really bad t-storms and tornado watch is finally over!
Today sure was a nasty big stormy day. The thunder booms and flashy lights were pretty bad. There is a lot of damage around. We were lucky and are fine. I hope that every bird and family are doing ok too.
Maybe we'll start getting better weather soon, I hope so.
Hey, Velcro bird is always a good thing :)

I'm glad Lizzie thought I filled out that speedo well I was nervous about wearing it at first.
Man what a change today from yesterday no humidity at all and even a stronger breeze.We even had two storms blow through out of no where.
Sound's like you had a great time as usual at the market I love getting out too and seeing people. You sound so cute doing your flirting and talking. I'm with you that corn on the cob is so good. Have a good night.

  Hi Kaji and Lizzie
mom and dad were eating dinner tonight and mom heard commotion coming from my cage and saw my foot was caught in my baby nest i sit in. i was flapping and hanging off the side by my bad leg. mom went over and held me so i wasn't dangling anymore and then dad took the nest from the cage which i was still caught in and worked for at least 3 minutes to get my foot untangled and dad said no more nest for me. tonight i sat all evening with mom in the bedroom and held my leg up but i still hoped around a bit using the leg. mom is glad i didn't pull my leg off i was struggling so hard.

love Boo Boo

  Hi Kaji
Mom and Dad went out to breakfast at Hearth and Kettle and it took forever to get out of there!Mom had a birthday coupon for $10.00 off a meal and they got that all messed up!Then when they got home,skin sis came over with Peepers,Celine and Mario for Mom to clip their nails and for skin sis to do her laundry,they hung it out on the line and the minute the last piece of clothing got pinned up it started to rain!They had to run back and get it all down and put in the dryer so,so much for saving on energy and getting fresh smelling laundry!Then Mom cut skin sis's hair for her,she was really nervous about cutting her hair,Mom is all right with doing the boys hair but not girls!Mom started of with the clippers that she uses on the boys and the comb and layered skin sis's hair on the sides and layered bangs for her and left the back long!She trimmed a little off the length and then quit as she was afraid to go any further!Skin sis actually loved her new haircut!Mom made her a lunch of hot dog omelet and blueberry pan fried toast.
Today's highs were 74 and when the sun was out this morning it felt really good,but the intermittent rain was such a bummer especially when it kept getting dark!Then the sun comes out after 4pm for a few seconds!What good was that?Our lows are 69.We are getting more rain tonight and tomorrow the whole day will be rain and thunderstorms here!
Oh your poor sweet Mom having to be at work sooo early in the morning!My Mom agrees with your sweet Mom on waking up slowly without having to rush around!My dad goes back to work tomorrow morning and Mom will have the house to herself again so she can finally get the things done she needs to do,like washing the floors and cleaning the bathrooms and cleaning out more junk from the house!We are supposed to get into the 80's by the mid week!Skin sis didn't take any more stuff from the house today as she had my frothers and fister with her and didn't want to squish them in the car going back home!
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you and your amazing Mom all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses! Yours make us smile and give us the warm sunshine we so love,we so look forward to them every day!Loving you always and forever,my awesome buddy! Love Dixie!Oh! and here's vote #8966 for you too!

  Hi Kaji
That farmer's market sure sounds like a greyt place for a parrot to get lots of attention. I bet Paula thinks that YOU are a cutie!!

The milonga sure was a lot of fun, although I still say the ladies in bikinis (you know who you are!!) took serious advantage of distracting us poor guys in the volleyball game. Still not sure who won, and I don't really care. What fun! The band sounded greyt as usual, Ms BB and her liquid refreshments were delicious and Lizzie's buffet....well, let's just say nobirdy went home hungry.

If you come to my page and look at the first two pics in my gallery you will see Gloria the car in all her gleaming glory (why do you think Mom named her Gloria). That's right; the new USB cable arrived yesterday and the pics are finally downloaded on my page. I don't mind sharing space with her at all, as long as she doesn't drive me to the groomers. We are going to have a long chat very soon.

Had a nice sunbath this morning, and we didn't get out till 9:30!! There were actually a few clouds out, so the weather was very slightly cooler. Just in the upper 80s today, which is an improvement. It still doesn't cool off much at night, and Mom has to leave the fan going in my room with my cover open about 6". Which means I wake up as soon as the sun comes up. Mom usually gets up around then anyway, but now I make sure she does!

Oh, and today I like peaches! Mom bought a couple more when she and Dad went to the grocery store yesterday, since they had some more locally grown ones. This time I decided they were good, which is fortunate since Mom said the grapes were so awful she didn't get me any.
