  Such a funny bird
She dives into her breakfast cup at night and chuckles loudly. She knows I want to take it away. I don't even have to approach the cage. She sees me picking up the other breakfast cups from the other cages and she reacts.

  Protest
I was taking the blanket that we use to cover up Tessa's cage to shake out on the deck. As I walked by her cage with the blanket, Tessa started yelling out loud whistles. Yes, I know it was way too early to cover you up. I'm just cleaning your cover!

  Nippy lady
Tessa has been a brat lately. I sit in the chair next to her cage and open the door. She immediately comes out and climbs up to my shoulder. Then she climbs down and starts tugging at my left sleeve. What do you want? She gets pretty aggressive with it, so I have to discourage her. Then she bows down her head and starts making these clucking noises. Must be some kind of nesting behavior.

  The bell
Tessa loves the bell she got for Christmas. She even rings it with her cage covered and she is supposed to be going to sleep! And in the morning, she rings for breakfast!!

  What's going on?
Tessa always needs to investigate what I'm doing whether inside or outside the cage. This afternoon, I was topping off seed containers that live under her cage. I was sitting on the floor while doing this, so of course, Tessa had to come down to the bottom of the cage and investigate everything with her 'evil eye'. She is such a kick!

  No egg
Tessa usually lays a couple of eggs around this time of year, but so far, nothing. Not that I really want her to lay eggs.

  Bird nest
Tessa has filled her seed cup up with perfectly shredded pieces of paper towel. I think she must be getting ready to lay an egg.

  Candy Crush crazy
Playing 'Candy Crush' on the iPhone and Tessa is going crazy again. She loves, loves, loves that game. Must be the colors and the noises.

  Out time
Tuesday and Wednesday nights I have Agility classes with the Pembrokes so Tessa doesn't get to come out as I get home too late. So Thursday nights, when she gets to come out after two straight nights, she is usually pretty bratty (and that means nippy!) but last night she was a good girl. No nips!

  More Candy Crush Fun
Tessa yelled at the Candy Crush game on the iPod again last night. She just loves the sounds and colors and probably the movement of the pieces.

  Good morning Tessa and flock
That is funny. I know how over eggcited birds can get over the silliest things. Today is a beautiful, sunny day and they say it will be 87f this afternoon. Finally a couple good days. Tomorrow the roan returns.
How is everyone doing? We haven't been on BC as much a usual due to lots of work to be done. Things will soon be back to normal, whatever that is.

  Hi Tessa
That is funny how you got so excited about the candy crunch game but guess those bright colors excited you LOL. Mom went to the fruit stand today and got some more fruit and veggies for the week so we are set again. At least the fruits are tasting better now too. Today was weigh in day here for us again. Mom says I need to gain a few ounces. I like to sit with mom and don’t eat as much in the summer either I guess. “A friend is a gift whose worth cannot be measured, except by the heart.” I just stomped on your votey button too! Your fid friend, Gus.

  Hi Tessa and flock
Thank you so much for this honor of BOTD!! We were so surprised to find out I won it and mom gave me a new happy hut for winning too..woooo hooo! This evening mom and dad went to the one grand daughters softball games. It was a good game and in the beginning they weren’t winning but in the end they did and the team was very excited too. The grand is a good pitcher and helped the team get ahead in the game and won the game ball which she will get her team mates to all sign. “Roses are red, violets are blue, I just left a vote for you.” Your kissing cousin, Chi chi.

  Hi Tessa, I'm Jesse's fister Zeena
Zeena here to visit and wish a wonderful weekend for you and your family. I have been busy working out for the up-coming bazeball season and haven't been around to see all my new friends lately. For this I do apologize.
To make for it, I was busy in the kitchen with Momma Deb today. We made popcorn balls on wooden Popsicle sticks and coated some with a little honey glaze to which I sprinkled crushed peanuts, walnuts or almonds. I also made some of my famous fruit chewy bars with wholewheat flour, fresh rolled oats--I love that old guy on the box, eggs, peanuts, almonds, cashews and of course tons to diced fruits; strawberries, raspberries, oranges, apples, and more. While it baked in the oven for 25 minutes I eat several popcorn treats. I wanted to be sure that they'd be just right for all my friends.
I hope you enjoy your snacks. I think I'll have to have a BBQ soon and have you all over for chicken wings, burgers and salads
etc. GOTTA have cake> I LOVE CAKE. YUMMY
hugs, and votes
Zeena

  the water dish
Funny thing this morning. I had cleaned Tessa's water dish and filled it with fresh water as I do every morning and I was putting it back into her cage through the swinging cup holder when she grabbed the edge of the dish and pulled the door shut! Clever girl!

  Hi Tessa
Spotlight on Caring -Taz part 2
SKY; How did you become a bird owner?
Mom GAIL;When we got back from Hawaii we started doing a lot of research on parrots, especially cockatoos. While doing that research a friend of ours had a little cockatiel named Tweety that they wanted to find a home for since his wife was pregnant and they didn’t think it was safe to have her around bird poop, so Tweety was our first bird and we were hooked. The rest of the flock followed though out the years…
Tweety (Cockatiel (RIP)
TJ (CAG) (RIP)
Jewels (Nanday Conure)
Taz (Citron C2)
Xena (CAG) (RIP)
Calabar (Mitred Conure) (RIP)

SuziQ (SI Ekkie)
Chloe (CAG)
Simon (B&G Macaw)
Pearl (Cockatiel (RIP)
Chica (B&G Macaw)
Napoleon (CAG)
Rosie (GALA)) SKY; TAZ, when did you join BC?
TAZ; 11/16/2006 but Mom didn’t start using it much until 3/23/2011 and Suzi Q was voting to help Chi chi attain her 10K votes…
SKY; tell us a little about how you are involved with birds?
Mom Gail; Other than taking care of my own flock, I am the secretary/treasurer of our local bird club. We are involved with rescuing birds and finding homes them and others that need a new home.
Sky; thank you Taz and Mom Gail. We will continue with our interview next Wednesday.
with my heart filled with love,

  Tessa: star of the show
I gave a presentation today on pruning for interns in the CT Master Gardener's program. As part of the presentation I had a short segment on how our companions interact with plants and had a little video of Tessa climbing over the night blooming Cereus in the living room. Tessa was the star of the show!

  Hi Tessa
I hope you are in a good mood today because it's your turn to have me stop in. I have been away because of Momma Deb being sick. She is much better now and can finally breath and isn't coughing all the time. My Momma Deb isn't a very good patient.
Our snow is nearly gone with all the warm sunny days we've been having. I hear freezing rain is on the way but the temps will have to drop quite a bit first.
Do you go to the Kissing Booth page? I have been stopping in there. Have lots of fun over there and the 2 girls manning it are very sweet. Today we have a limbo contest.
I don't have the page number but if you come to my page and in the aviary box next to my smiling beak there is a pink box with a bird at a booth--Kissing booth--just click on it. I am off to limbo, hope you get over there.
Jesse

  Hi Tessa
Good morning to you. So, you are a music bird? That's cool. I love dancing and singing myself. At times I get in trouble for my volume however. I don't get it, so what if I sing at the very top of my lungs?
It's snowing again today and so far we've had 2-3 inches since earlier this morning. Everyone is getting upset about the weather but it is only February after all. That's ok, soon the humans will be complaining it's too hot , too many bugs, too much rain.
I'm watching cartoons this morning while I chew on my pellets. I like this cartoon that has ballerinas doing different actions to get kids to exercise. Mom says it's the dumbest one on there but hey, how weird is it to watch humans jumping around wearing tights? I think they're pretty funny looking.
Momma Deb's not feeling better yet, still coughing and lots of chest congestion. I hope she's better soon. I think I better go let her take care of the b aby birds and head back to b ed for a nap.
Talk to you tomorrow,
Jesse

  Hi Tessa
Spotlight on Caring-February 14th-Falco & the boys
Hello every bird, SKY here with this weeks Spotlight on Caring. This being Valentine's Day I want to first all our BC friends and family a day full of love and romance! This weeks Spotlight features a flockily well known to many, Falco, Gizmo, Willie and their Mom Arlene. SKY; mom Arlene, when did you first become interested in birds? Mom Arlene; I used to have a budgie as a teenager. He was constantly with me when I was home. SKY; How did you become a bird owner? Mom Arlene; I became a bird owner from working at the wildlife center! We get ring necked doves there nearly every summer: you know the kind--either beige with a ring around its neck, or all white, and people release them at weddings or funerals or who knows when else. Anyway we always have to rehome them, as the owners don't band their legs and nearly every year some get lost and don't return home. I took a pair the first year, but doves aren't that interactive. Later (in 2005) I answered the phone when a woman asked if we rehomed parrots. I told her no, but that I might be interested. She gave me her information, and I called when I got home. That's how I got Falco! Her breeder/owner had gotten too infirm to care for her properly, and the rest of the family already had enough birds. When we met, Falco came right to the front of her cage and began talking and dancing. That's how I knew we were meant for each other!
SKY; when do first join Bird Channel? Mom Arlene ; I believe it was in 2009
SKY: thank you Mom Arlene, for sharing with us. Next Wednesday we will hear the REST of the STORY. I promise you it is well worth the wait.
GIZMO is working on the 10K HOF. PLEASE stop in to support him with your votes.-190123
with my heart filled with love, SKY

  Egg-cited
Tessa wouldn't come out of her cage last night and instead I saw she was sitting in her seed cup. Sure enough, when I checked, she was sitting on an egg. We were very egg-cited!

  Tessa, what a naughty girl
you aren't suppose to bite like that. You should try the sneak attack. It gets them by surprise!
Casey here to drop of a vote for all and bring you another box to shred. Maybe we can do it together? Casey climbs up next to Tessa as they each pull and rip and tear the box into confetti sized pieces.
"WOW, that was fun" Casey says, " Let's go look to see what else we can tear apart!"

  Bratty bird
Last night Tessa was trying to burrow up my short sleeved T-shirt so I gently shooed her off and she flew back onto her cage. Then she flew back off and lunged at my arm with a big bite. Ouch! Bratty bird. She settled down after that though.

Well, I had some left over Jalapeno pepper in the fridge so decided to see if Tessa might be interested. She gave it the evil eye, and then attacked it. Guess she likes it.
