~*!*~THANK YOU TO ALL THE WONDERFUL BIRDIES WHO SUPPORTED ME IN MY JOURNEY TOWARDS BIRD OF THE WEEK!!!~*!*~ I am making my way to thank all of you personally for voting for me. Mom and I are sooo happy!! We could not have done it without all your help!!

**~ 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 Boo Boo #162724 for BOTM in April!

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!

  Hi Kaji
Well, Mom got me outside for my sunbath at 9:30 this morning, and it's a good thing she did. It was already so warm she had to move to the shade in about 10 minutes. We hit 91 today, and I think it was already in the 80s that early.

I got pretty good Mom time today, although she deserted me mid-morning to help her friend Judy with a couple of papers for her Masters courses. She is really doing well, and she says she can thank my mom for polishing her writing to always get the good grades. Mom says her ideas are what are getting the grades. Sounds like a mutual admiration society to me!

Then Mom went to get her therapeutic massage, and she stopped at the library on the way home and the car wash so Gloria looks all pretty. Now what is missing from this scenario? You guessed it! She forgot to eat lunch again! I think there is some chicken in the fridge, and if so she will have a piece and I will get a thigh bone. Yippee!

Today is the last day to vote in the Milonga Picture Contest, so be sure and get over there and cast your flock's 5 votes for the day. There are several very close races going on, so you wouldn't want to miss a chance to vote for your favorites. Polls close at midnight EDT.

  Hey Kaji,
I need your help buddy. I've asked King Flitzer if we could use the Castle grounds to hold a Celebration of Life in Little Mario Adlers name.

He says okay so I will need some help with the decorating.

Can you and your flock give us a wing?

I'm gonna be asking more friends for help in making this a nice memorial for Mario Adler, Dixie's lil frother.

Pookie bows and says the Castle Ballroom it is!

Can you help spread the word for us?

Mom only has her phone thingy and its a little slow at times.

I'd really appreciate all the help we can get.

Mario was a sweet sweet little guy and he will be sorely missed, especially by me and my flock.

I'll gather some friends and well decorate the ballroom.

Thank you so much again for all your help and for letting us use the Castle Ballroom.

We just hafta spread the word so that no one gets left out.

Sending big birdie hugs and a vote.

We want to hold it this coming Sunday.

Love,

Pookie, Laka Aolani and Angel Sallykins

  Hi Kaji and Lizzie
Bald Eagles are nesting on all three of Pittsburgh's major rivers! Who knew the day would never come when Pittsburghers would be cheering for the Eagles…Bald Eagles, that is!

It has probably been more than 250 years since Bald Eagles last nested along Pittsburgh’s three rivers. In the 18th century, suitable nesting habitat in the form of mature tall trees was stripped from the hillsides flanking the rivers to meet the lumber and fuel demands of a rapidly growing human population in the area; second, industrialization beginning in the 19th century led to extensive unregulated pollution of the rivers, which decimated fish populations that eagles feed on; third, beginning in the mid-20th century eagles (and many other birds) showed signs of succumbing to the unintended side effects of widespread use of the pesticide DDT (developed for use in World War II) which eventually caused chronic nesting failure for the species. As recently as the mid-1980s, there were just a few remaining nesting Bald Eagles pairs anywhere in Pennsylvania, all of these in the northwest corner of the state.
One nest, located on the Monongahela River in the community of Hays is the most famous because a web camas been set up to view the nest. millions of people are viewing the nesting activity. Last year this pair successfully raised three eagle babies. this year they only layed 2 eggs. one of the eggs had a crack in it and the mom tried to keep it together but when the dad eagle came to sit on the egg he saw the crack and threw the egg out of the nest. during a recent snowstorm the mom eagle was totally covered in snow while incubating the single egg
The Bald Eagle,has made a tremendous comeback throughout its range in the lower 48 states. Its recovery is due to enforcement of federal laws protecting it from persecution, the banning of DDT, which bio-accumulated in eagles and other piscivorous (fish-eating) birds, eventually causing complete reproductive failure through the thinning of their egg shells to the point that eggs simply broke when parent birds tried to incubate them; passage in the same year of the federal Clean Water Act, and, direct recovery measures taken by our Game Commission, which brought nestling Bald Eagles from healthy populations to hacking sitese when the state’s breeding population was down to just a few nesting pairs. Similar efforts by game agencies in surrounding states also have contributed to the rapid increase in the number of nesting Bald Eagles in Pennsylvania. By 2000, there were about 50 known nesting pairs of eagles in the state; as of 2012, more than 200 nesting locations are known for Bald Eagle in Pennsylvania, including nests in almost every county!

  Hi Kaji
Mom says it would probably be easier and faster to feed bat babies, just tube them and shoot the milk in! These ones have to be individually hand fed, and some of them eat a ton of mealies!
Mom had little kids yesterday for her tour. They were preK, so around 4 years old. You can imagine it was hard to keep them focused. They started in Bird Hall, though, so they liked looking at the pretty colors.
Well, today is going to be one great day for us birdies, after mom gets done scrubbing the cages, that is. She has a few errands, but they won't take long, and the day is ours! We love days like this, they are rare this time of year. The museum will be super busy from after Easter until mid June, so this may be our last whole day for awhile.
I hope you are having a fun day today, getting some springlike weather, and of course, lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

Everyday mom feels better and so does dad ! Now that his tooth feels better mom is more worried about him accidentally chomping down on something before the stem gets put in next Friday to secure the tooth.

Rain today :( Dark and dreary - but hopefully it'll wash away the leftover snow ! It's supposed to be near 50 too ! Tomorrow we'll have mud !

Don't forget to go try your wing at Name That Tune (page 231616) Songs that evoke feelings of spring ! Happy Thursday - love Cookie

My mom saw the migration one time and said it was amazing. They fly up I-75 and cross over the Mackinac Bridge. I wonder who collects the toll from them?
Yeah, I'm staying home ... too many raptures ... don't want to give them any ideas.
Glad you enjoyed your bath and the splash ... hehehehe. That's the way to do it.
Woke up this morning to freezing rain. Then it turned to snow coming down very heavy. The roads were really bad. Dad was out there plowing. Now it's going down to really cold again. My sunglasses and flip flops have been put away. I have a pot of hot chocolate ready, come join me.

  Hi ya Kaji~
I hope you had a fun day! Sound like it! I have been taking showers everyday for the last week. I don't usually do this but I have been molting a bit so it feels good! I look very fluffy too!!!
I am really glad that Aunt Rose did not listen to the silly vet and that Mario had a great last few months. We are going to have to face it soon with Mandy but mom knows she is doing the right thing and we are making lots of memories!
Mom was off last night and off tonight. They are having more weekend ads so she has to adjust her schedule for a few weeks. She doesn't like it but it has to be done.
We are doing some spring cleaning and it is pretty boring. Mom found 6 computer mice in the side table drawer and not one of them works! They all got tossed into the garbage. Now mom has to figure out what to do with all the broken cell phones dad threw in the drawer. He has left quite a trail of broken cells phones in his wake!hehehehehe
Have a wonderful night!

  Hi Kaji
sweet Lizzie and Aunt DJ,
This morning was another bright sunny morning with the high's of 43 and the lows of 35,its 37 right now.Mom got us up early and fed us and then did a major clean up of our room.She cried the whole time having to look at Mario's empty cage and all his things in it. I think she washed his cage more with her tears than with the soap and water and Poop Off she was working with.After she scrubbed every inch of his cage she took it out of our room because Kallie wouldn't stop trying to sit on it.Mom moved it out to the spare room in the front of the house and shut the door so she wouldn't have to be reminded of it and not ever going to see Mario again.Candida kept making these loud mournful sounds which only made Mom cry more.And on the whole we were all very quiet today,we didn't even call out for our late day snack.Mom left shortly after she vacuumed and washed our bird room floor.Dad took her to Nana's so she could help her and dad fixed Nana's mailbox which had completely fallen over.While dad went to the hardware store to get some lag bolts to fix the mailbox with,Nana had Mom call in some nachos for their lunch.Skin sis and skin bro came down and so did the VNA to give Nana a shower the first one since she came home.The VNA thought that skin bro did a wonderful job of installing the hand held shower and it really felt good to Nana to have a nice hot shower.After the VNA left Mom and skin sis went down to Bobby Burnes to pick up the nachos and all five of them sat and ate together.Mom cleaned up the kitchen and then they left shortly afterwards so Nana could get some rest.Nana will be seeing the surgeon tomorrow so Mom will be back to bring her there with skin bro.When Mom and dad came home,the house was very quiet,we all usually yell out to her when she walks through the door,she panicked when she called out to us and we didn't answer her back.So she ran into our room fast.We just have been in a very quiet mood lately,missing our frother,Mario and wondering just why he's not in his cage beside us anymore.Mom and all of us can't thank you enough for the comforting words and love you send us.Please give Lizzie a big hug and kisses from all of us here,it gives us great comfort knowing she was there with Mario and helping him make the transition over to the Bridge.He really must've been so happy to see Gabbie again. We know that Mario is there on the Bridge surrounded by all our angel friends.The hole in our hearts for him are still so fresh and we are hoping in time that it will lessen and not hurt so much.
Mom is going to talk to Nana's surgeon tomorrow when she sees him and find out about the Coumadin and why they upped it so much.Mom is really nervous about that also.
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all our love to you and that wonderful Mom of yours along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses!We can't thank you enough for all the good thought,prayers and wing hugs you send us,we just don't know

  Hi Kaji
Hah! I got my sunbath yesterday after all!! After Mom got finished with my blogging at 2PM, we went back into my room and I flew right on to my outside carrier and climbed in and chirped at Mom. So she took me outside, and it was just barely still warm enough. However we got a good 25 minutes before Mom thought it was cooling down too much. Then today we got out there at 11 (no fooling around from me today!). Good thing we got out early too, because it was pretty darned warm. It was forecasted for 84 degrees today, and Mom thinks it may have even been warmer. Now tomorrow they are saying 88, which is better than the 90 they were predicting. We will still get out early though.

Mom goes to the gym from 4-6 today, so she is spending as much time as possible with me before then. She is buried in her kindle when we are in my room, but all I have to do is land on her shoulder and she gives me all of her attention.

We had the Methi Malai lunch today, and Mom's curiosity finally got the best of her and she googled it. It is an Indian dish, which didn't surprise her. I love the kidney beans, but I insisted on grabbing one before Mom blew on it to cool it down for me. Boy, did I drop that quickly! Once it cooled off, Mom gave it back to me and cooled off a couple more. Yum!! And I got blueberries with my breakfast, which I liked for the first time! I ate them all, and then we had a piece of the cookies Mom baked yesterday for mid morning break. Life is good!

  Hi Kaji and Lizzie
HAPPY HUMPDAY
OBSERVING NESTS (PART2) from yesterday

7)Search carefully: It is critically important that we avoid damaging nest sites. Nests that have yet to be discovered are particularly vulnerable. When searching for nests, move slowly through dense foliage, being careful not to dislodge any nests. The nests of ground-nesting birds, such as Killdeer, Ovenbirds, Bobolinks, and many waterbirds, are difficult to see, so tread lightly and be cautious around potential ground-nest sites.
8)Be wary of nest predators: Avoid leaving tracks that can direct predators to nests. Nest predators are everywhere—on the ground, in vegetation, and in the air—and many are smart enough to watch you, so be careful that predators such as cats are not following you! Also try to not damage or trample vegetation that could expose nests.
9)Minimize disturbance at the nest: It is important not to startle a bird as you approach the nest; this may cause it to accidentally knock out eggs or young when it flies off. Before approaching the nest, try to see if a parent is sitting on it. Whenever possible, wait a few minutes to see if the bird leaves on its own. If they do, this is the ideal time to check the nest. If a sitting bird does not leave on its own, do not force it off the nest. In this case, you will need to come back later. Remember to keep each visit brief.
10)Never handle birds or eggs in the nest: Eggs can be easily cracked or small nestlings injured, and there is no reason to touch these fragile younglings, despite how cute they may look. Small nestlings are remarkably helpless and may not be able to crawl back into the nest cup if displaced, even inside of a nest box. Children observing nests should always be under the supervision of an adult.
11)Don’t leave a dead-end trail: If you plan on visiting the nest frequently, try to take a different route away from the nest site than the route you took to reach it. Walking to the nest and back along the same path leaves a dead-end trail that can lead predators directly to the nest.

  Hi Kaji
There are 7 bats there right now!
Today mom has a tour at 11:20, so I'm going first in the blogs, as she thinks I can finish mine before she has to leave. I don't know if that's true, but I'll try.
Mom's dinner party at Uncle Gene's went well last night. They all had a good time, and Gene cooked some good food for everyone. Mom loves seeing her nieces and nephews, so she was glad there was one of each last night. They also told mom they would be here for Easter dinner, which is spectacular news. Maybe that means Aunt Gin will come for dinner, too. That would be a real treat.
I think once the tour is over and the blogs done, mom will be at our disposal the rest of the day. I'm sure we can keep her busy, what do you think?
Have a wonderful day, and hope spring is getting to your house soon. Hugs, Willie

I've decided that it's not so bad, daddy having a bad tooth ! He's on a soft food diet till next Friday when the root canal is done and the stem put in to secure the tooth. That means mom is making pasta ! Lots of pasta ! I love pasta ! ! !

Last night I was so happy, I had a bath . . . daddy played in the water with me since mom has his cold now. Luckily, she is feeling better this morning so it seems to have been a quick one . . .

WOW ... the BC is sure acting up for me tonight! It's taking forever to blog! It keeps freezing and dropping words.
Mom has to clean up all my chewed wood ... that's the biggest mess daily. The big clean up is once a week. I just like my stuff my way!
We are waiting for the snow/ice mix to come soon .. oh joy!
Spring migration has begun in Mackinac Straits (50 miles from my birdie condo). They say it's a strong start with eight species of hawks, 113 bald eagles and 224 golden eagles. As for me, I'll stay in my condo and chew up some wood toys and eat some treats. I'll wing wave as they go by.

  good to go.The TV room ceiling looks so much better without having to look at all those big brown stains from the snow and rain.Mom is feeling a little bit down and still crying over losing Mario so please forgive us for not hanging around too long tonight.Mom has to deal with cleaning out his cage in the morning and she couldn't even bury Mario as the snow is still too deep and the ground underneath is too frozen to even try to dig up.Mario will be resting in the freezer until the winter goes away and we can put Mario in his final resting place.
Oh how awesome to have your snack hidden in bubble wrap like that and to be able to play with it and snap it,that's always so much fun to hear those bubbles snap like that!
I would be so upset also if I were you to be going on a nice car ride and ending up at the vets only to have my flight feathers taken away from me!But I'm like you mad for a while but velcroed as if your life depends on not letting you Mom get away from you!
Why doesn't this snow just leave us alone?Its time for winter to go away and the warm sunshine and summer to get back to us so we can go outside again!
Your poor sweet Momma,Mom and I don't blame her for not wanting to go back to work after she got to spend a long weekend with you at home,you just can't beat that time together!
Wishing you a greyt day and we're sending you and that awesome Mom of yours all our love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses!You just don't know how much we so appreciate all those good thoughts you send to us and prayers,they mean so much to us!Loving you always and forever,my buddy,Love,Dixie

  Hi Kaji
Nana has no idea but yesterday they upped her Coumadin to three pills and you're right it has to do with blood thinning.She had bad cramps last night and she thinks it was from the Coumadin being upped.But she only has to take it until Thursday,that's when she sees the surgeon.
It was another bright sunny but cold morning,with the highs of 34 and the lows of 25.Both my Parronts got up early at 7:00am and got dressed and Mom was going to leave us til she got back from helping dad drop off her car,but as they were leaving skin bro was already in the driveway so my dad told Mom to stay home while he and skin bro dropped Mom's car off.Mom went back into the house and cleaned our cages and fed us but our frother Mario wasn't really feeling good so Mom just picked him up and gave him a kiss on his little tiel beak and told him she'd be back to give him some snuggles when she got home,but that never happened.By the time Mom came home Dad met us in the garage with a bag and Mario was in it.Dad had checked on us earlier and we were fine and then in the late afternoon he went to give us our snacks and found Mario on the bottom of his cage.Mom is so upset right now.She doesn't even feel like doing anything else.She feels that maybe she should've done more for Mario,taken him with her or spent a little more time with him.
When skin bro came back with my dad from dropping Mom's car off at the repair shop,Mom got right in his car and they went to Nana's.They all had some breakfast there and some tea with Nana and then Mom vacuumed Nana's whole house,her bird room,bedroom,hall and living room and kitchen.Then the PT VNA came and put Nana through another grueling workout with her legs.She brought resistance bands with her and Nana did both strengths and told the PT person that they were easy to do so she gave Nana the harder of the two bands to work out with.After she left,Nana whispered how bad her legs ache right now!Then skin bro and Mom took off to find Nana a hand held shower head so she can start having showers instead of the sponge bath thing.So skin bro drove them to WalMart and they found one there and they ran one errand for Nana and then skin bro went to West Falmouth Market and bought all three of them a Gobbler sub,(turkey,stuffing,cranberry sauce)and they went back to Nana's and ate together.Then skin bro installed the new shower for Nana and Mom helped him and he did really greyt.The one mistake they made was forgetting to put the washers inside so when skin bro turned the water on to test it it leaked from the top where the connections were so he had to take everything apart and do it all again but they finally got it right.Now when the VNA that comes to give Nana a bath tomorrow,Nana will be able to have a shower and use her shower seat.My dad worked on the TV room ceiling all morning after he got the car back,he had to walk up to get the car and it only took him 25 minutes so now Mom has a new battery,new tires and an alignment so she's

Well, I certainly should have gotten a sunbath today, since it hit mid-70s here, but I just wasn't having any part of it. Mom tried every trick in the book to get me into my carrier, and I would not cooperate at all. Even the walkabout technique failed, because I wouldn't get on Mom's shoulder to go for a nice walk around the house which always ends up with her taking me to my outside carrier and I climb in. No shoulder, no ride, no sunbath. Not sure why, but it is supposed to be in the 80s tomorrow, so she will really want to get me out there and in the morning too. Hopefully I will be in the mood then.

The voting for the Milonga contest seems to be picking up, so I am hopeful we will have a good representation of the BC birdie's choices for winners. With 5 categories, there are plenty of chances to win something.

Mom is doing laundry today, which I really don't like because she will not let me help. Then later she is planning on baking a batch of her protein oatmeal/date cookies, which also takes her away from me. Am I being punished for not cooperating on the sunbath? Not sure, but I do not like it!!

  Hi Kaji
Poor you, wing trims are humiliating, aren't they? Good thing you forgive your mom. She really does love you, you know.
Mom goes to the center for a couple of 2 hour shifts, at least twice a week, and sometimes more. With all the training the volunteers get, the center expects a 4 hour commitment from each one every week. The coordinator hasn't seen the bat population explode, she thought there were only 3 in there, so that's why she assigned mom to all of that.
We loved seeing everyone's St. Pat's pics up, and now we are loving all the Easter pics. BC moms and dads are so creative!
Mom was at a meeting this morning at the museum. It took all morning, but it was the spring luncheon, too, so at least the food was good. Mom took some pics of the very end of the meeting, which was a lot more interesting than the beginning. The staff got to see the latest museum outreach program about Spinosaurus, complete with a spinosaurus 'baby' which is a 6 foot animatronic/human puppet! It was really neat! Mom will try to post pics if she can figure out how to get them off her phone.
Tonight mom is going to Gene's for dinner, as he's leaving for Germany again on Saturday and won't be back for awhile. She has some fudge to take over there, as what she made for the luncheon didn't get all eaten up.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of scritches and cuddles. It's still cold here, hopefully you are having springlike weather. Hugs, Willie

  Hi Kaji and Lizzie
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

I didn't think there was a real Wally World. My mommy saw it on National Lampoons vacation. The movie was funny...What a trip heehee !!!

Yesterday my mommy and daddy got back from Vegas at 5AM...
My mommy was so happy and tired. She slept all day !!!
So now it's all about catching up on blogs...

My mommy said that she partied like a rock star heehee...
My daddy and her ate anywhere they wanted and they got to pet real dolphins.
There was lot's of shows and my mommy won some money playing her favorite slot machines.
They danced all night and had an awesome time.
The temps there was in the 80's and hot !!!
But she stayed indoors at the air conditoned casinos and restraunts.
They stayed at the Golden Nugget Hotel. My mommy and daddy stayed there before and loved it...

Today is going to be hot and by this weekend we are expecting a major heat wave.
Not very good. My mommy hates the heat !!!

  Morning Kaji
Happy Tuesday ! Good thing mom stopped and got me pellets and nutriberries on her way home yesterday . . . she woke up during the night with that cold that daddy had last week ! Jeepers, it's nice that he wants to share, but this is silly ! If mom hadn't missed so much time with her drama club this winter and the fact that their program is about 3 weeks earlier this year, she'd take the day and medicate herself and sleep it away . . .

Daddy had a good check-up with the surgeon so now he's done with dentist appts. till Friday. And that's all the NY news ! Have a great day - I'll be thinking of you since I'll be caged :( Love Cookie

  Hi Kaji
We had our snow yesterday. We still have that leftover snow (several feet). There is more coming. I'm so tired of it. Mom says the horses will have to wear boots for the derby if this keeps up.
What a trick! You get a nice ride only to show up at the vets! I don't like my nails or wings done ... esp the wings!
I get my condo major cleaning once a week and clean ups way too much I think.
It's still winter up here. Wednesday, we will have all day snow with lows in the negative. Looks like the high on Thursday will be 12 degrees. Back to the winter boots and hot chocolate for me ... bummer.
Hugs

HEY KAJI. WELL WE DID GET SNOW BUT OURS DIDN'T START TILL 9am. IT CAME DOWN PRETTY HARD. MOM TOOK SOME PICTURES OUT THE FRONT DOOR AND THE BACK YARD AND SENT TO YOUR MOM. IT FINALLY STOPPED ABOUT 12:30pm. THEN A COUPLE HOURS LATER THE PLOW PEOPLE CAME TO CLEAN OUR STREET AND DRIVEWAYS AND SIDEWALKS. WE GOT I THINK 2 1/2 INCHES - 3 CAUSE THE PLAOW GUYS DO NOT COME UNLESS ITS 2 INCHES OR MORE.

MOM DIDN'T GO EXERCISING TODAY CAUSE OF THE SNOW. IT WILL BE ALL MELTED BY WED WHEN THEY SAY TEMPS WILL BE IN THE UPPER 50'S TO 60. ALSO RAIN IS COMING SO THAT WILL WIPE THE SNOW OUT. IT WAS PRETTY AS IT CAME DOWN. I HOPE THAT THIS IS THE LAST OF IT.

MOM REMEMBERS THAT ON HER BIRTHDAY (MARCH 25, 1970) THERE WAS A BIG SNOW BLIZZARD. NO ONE CAME TO HER BIRTHDAY DINNER. IT WAS NOT A GOOD DAY.

I AM SORRY YOU GOT YOUR WINGS AND TALONS CLIPPED. MOM SAYS ONCE ITS NICE OUT THAT ME AND KACEY HAVE TO GO AND GET OURS DONE. THEY AREN'T TOO BAD RIGHT NOW.

WELL I GUESS YOUR THREE DAY WITH YOUR MOM ARE UP AND SHE HAS TO GO BACK TO WORK. JUST KEEP THINKING THAT IN 4 DAYS ITS THE WEEKEND AGAIN.

How did your wing and nail trim go today? Hope you and your mom had a great day together today. Have a good night.

  Hi Kaji and Lizzie
It seems that birds may not be as faithful to their mates as we’ve been led to think.The use of DNA by scientists has provided new food for thought to people who had assumed that most birds were faithful to their mates, if not for a lifetime, at least for a single breeding season.

It turns out that there is more hanky-panky going on in the back fields and woodlands of the country among birds than anyone could imagine. DNA studies of songbirds have shown that among any four baby birds in a single nest, it is typical that only an average of two are the creation of the parent birds that are raising them. The other two nestling have either a different father or mother, or both. In other words, it is a common practice among songbirds to copulate with birds other than their mates, thus producing broods of nestlings with mixed parentage.

Not Every Partnership Lasts The Season
Divorce is also common among birds, particularly in birds of prey. If a mated pair of hawks, for example, is not successful in producing a brood of youngsters, an avian divorce often arises and one or the other will seek another mate.

Some birds that are faithful to their mates.Although there are a few exceptions, parrots are monogamous breeders which nest in cavities and hold no territories other than their nesting sites.The pair bonds of the parrots and cockatoos are strong and a pair remains close even during the non-breeding season, even if they join larger flocks. Eagles, some Owls Geese, Swans and some seabirds are uncommonly faithful, often for life. Indeed, true love does seem to exist in the bird world, though it is hard to find.

Well, voting in the Irish Milonga Pic Contest was just made simpler! The avatar (look for the shamrock) is now in the aviary on the Calendar Page (thank you, Sugar). So when you go to check on hatchdays and such, you can just click on the Shamrock to get to the milonga page and vote. You can find it in my aviary as well. (Thank you, MB, for that lovely avatar!) We had a better turn out yesterday, but there are still birdies who are not coming to vote. PLEASE!!! We want to know whose pics you want to win.

I had a nice morning time with my mom, but then she abandoned me to color her feathers. She says I am lucky she does it at home, since it is quicker. However I am still not allowed out of my room while it is going on; something about fumes. She doesn't really look any different to me though.

We did get outside for a sunbath today about 12:30. It was just warm enough, but Mom was not wearing shorts and a tank top today. However she was able to stay in the sun with me, so I guess it's a trade off. A car slowed down to look at me, so I gave him a good squawk. And the later time to go out meant all those noisy trash trucks were done.

Mom just had a protein fruit smoothie for lunch. Now I do like those, but there is nothing to chew on. I want pasta! At least she remembered to have lunch today. She forgot both Saturday and Sunday. Who forgets to eat??!
