For the longest timeI had been wanting to add, either an African Grey or an Amazon to my home, and both were for sale in the pets for sale in the newspaper, for the same price! When Jenny and I met, the search was over, as she walked over to me and started crawling up my leg, she knew, and I knew, that we would be forever friends, and while she was no longer wanted in her other home, you should see and feel the love she exudes to all who come near her, she adds the brilliance of Summer sunshine to our home daily! I could not possibly imagine my life without Jennifer, without Jen I would cease to be, she gives me reason and makes my heart beat!! Jenny Lynn is an awesome parrot...

Thanks again to all of you, and if I can do it, you can also, see ya on the BC my dear friends...

Hi! My name is Jen Lynn~Come on BC beach party, & all Zon Guys

I am an Orange-Winged Amazon from Rock Island, IL.

Jen Lynn, Daddy's girl, and sometimes 'Gator Girl', and Da Coach... I'm Alfie's chick

14 years old   F

Orange-Winged Amazon

Mac and cheese, pizza crust, and cheetos, toast & chunky peanut butter and all fruits and veggies...and aunt Betty's birdy bread, yummo...

Almost anywhere in or on my brother Ziggy's cage, or when he is in mine, we are together 24/7, I love my new flock mate...

Seeing my dad play with my sister bird and don't touch my brother, he's my buddy!!

Jen Lynn is my owner, and she is the most loving, caring
intelligent animal I have ever been around, and the things she says and does is a constant source of total amazement at what her little brain brings forth everday! To know her is to love her...I know her, and I love her, and with God as my witness, I love her more than life itself...


The early spring defensive posture that we call the Amazon Attitude, also robbing banks, and drinking Jack Daniels, and getting in fist fights with those who would be bullies to other parrots....

As always forever....

  Hi Jenny Lynn and all of the Dallas'
dad got good news when he went to the doctor today he said that the new medication would be fine for dad. Dad has an appointment with his primary doctor so he can write the prescription and write the letter to the NHRA. Dad was so stressed out that his blood pressure went up by 30 points since yesterday which was not good. As soon as he got the good news he was exhausted...
To
It was 105 yesterday and somewhere around that today...supposed to get down to 99 tomorrow...wow

Tomorrow is grocery day and we need it as mom is almost out of everything.

That slow cooker chicken sounds yummy, that is something mom should do...I'll have to tell her.


Have a great Friday and weekend...wing hugs & love Scoober

  Hi Jenny Lynn
Sounds like a very busy day at the Dallas home. I can just smell that slow cooker ...yum!
Mom says there is so much she needs to get done but it's just not happening. Maybe tomorrow I'll help her with some chores.
We're having a heat wave ... it was 73 degrees today with sun!!!! I had a nice sunbath on the patio. But tonight should be 51 degrees, better than 45! That nasty polar vortex is playing with us again. I wish it would completely go away. Hope everyone had a nice day. G'nite.

  Heya, Miss Jenny!
Mom sent an email to the BC asking how long it will be before the avatars are back. Sure do miss them--so much easier to get around the BC, you know?! And it is so slow again, too. Sheesh!

We had a lovely lovely day here today--it was warmer, and sunny! Supposed to get rain but that did not happen. Mom was in meetings forever today. She is glad she is not in a bunch of them tomorrow! Anyway, the sun was out, and it warmed up to around 80. Am counting the hours till tomorrow evening when I get Mom all to myself!

  Hi Jenny Lynn
Well the parronts had another early meal today and I got my condo cleaned earlier too which should of made me more aware but you know how that goes. Anyway off they went to leave me. Said they were going to the farm…doesn’t dad know his mom doesn’t live there any more?? Guess he misses it since he did grew up there and they got to see the nephew and his family a bit. Then the parronts visited old friends that live up that way that dad went to school with. They got home in time to tuck me in for the night so guess that was ok and I was a bit tired from the vet visit yesterday so got caught up on my beauty sleep while they were gone. “I have learned its not what I have in life but who I have in my life that counts.“ Leaving a vote for you …your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Jenny Lynn and Flock
i think as soon as anyone is experiencing any type of problem on bird channel they should immediately email what is going on. what is the worst they can do? cancel bird channel? they are already going to do that. crystal also said that right now the demise of our bird e club has been put on hold for now. maybe we can make it through to the end of the year. that would be awesome!mom emailed crystal and crystal said she would send it to the tech department and would mom please tell them also about the missing avatars and aviaries so mom did. their email is sitesupport@i5publishing.com crystals email is capilado@i5publishing.com.
crystal said something about them counting how many complaints they are getting about it so we should all complain to them loud and clear.

  Hi Jenny Lynn
Mom and I got out for the sunbath this morning at 9, but we were back inside by 9:45 because it was already getting too warm. High in the upper 90s today, and Mom has a pre-surgery appointment with her GI doc this afternoon at 5. Probably be about 90 still, and she is sure glad Gloria's a/c works well and cranks up fast.

Last night when Dad poked his head into my room to say hi, I was right at the door! He backed up and couldn't close the door without squishing me. So he walked down the hall and I waddled right behind him. He walked pretty slowly, so I did too and when he stopped I did too and gave him the old evil eye. Then Mom came out of my room and scooped me up. I am sure I had Dad terrified though...don't you think?

P.S. Although Gloria is very fast and maneuverable, I do not think Mom would be willing to loan her to you. She won't even let me or Dad drive Gloria!

  Hi Jenny-Lynn and the Dallas Flock
hello everybirdie. Zeena here on my final day of July. Today I want to take the time to thank you all for all the wonderful comments, and helpful topic input. When any bird runs for BOTM, it is a family affair. No one can make it to the BC Castle with out the help and votes of their many friends. I have met many awesome birds this month, and have learned a great deal about the various species we visited.
With a flock legacy of BOTMs to follow after, it was a challenge to equal their efforts and enthusiasm. Sky, Little Angel (Adler) and my frother Casey set the measure by which I hoped to inform and share with you. I had the most wonderful month. Thank you one and all.
This being my final BOTM Post I decided to stop by and visit with a beautiful and unusual species that is a delight to watch.

The Black Palm Cockatoo is considered to be the most beautiful of the Cockatoos.

However, the Palm Cockatoo is endangered in the wild and is mostly kept for breeding purposes. While the Palm Cockatoo is known for being loving and affectionate, just like any Cockatoo, they are also very needy. If you own a Cockatoo, then you know why they are called the "love sponges" of the parrots. And you also know that they are the most needy of all the pet birds and often love their owners too much.

Cockatoos require a lot of time and attention--much more than any other pet bird. If you are able to spend at least two full hours a day with your bird (out of his cage), not leave the house for 6 or more hours everyday, cook for your bird and provide him with a variety of healthy foods, handle the loud screaming, afford the large cage and huge amount of toys, and deal with the adjustment stage that can include aggression, then rescuing a Cockatoo might be a great idea. Make sure you research as much as possible because you don't want to add to the already out-of-hand rescue problem.

Because so many Cockatoos are left to rescues, I highly encourage you to visit your local parrot rescue, see what I'm talking about, and consider rescuing one of these poor majestic creatures instead of buying one in a store. If you can handle all this, then this really might be the right bird for you.

But keep in mind that Black Palm Cockatoos in particular are very hard to find. They can cost upwards of $16,000 because of their rarity and endangered status. So, don't get your hopes up if you have your mind set on this species.

with love and scritches Zeena 255116

  Hi Jenny Lynn
and the wonderful Dallas flock and Uncle Chuck too!It is a beautiful day here today,with temperatures of 77 degrees and bright warm sun and that summer breeze that intermittently goes by you!Mom is trying to get her chores done so that we can get to enjoy the outdoors as well and have those wonderful soaking showers and a dry off in the sunshine for our feathers!Tomorrow Mom will be on the run again going to the dump and helping Nana get more of her chores done and maybe helping with more of her yardwork too!Today she is home with us,giving us all her undivided attention and love!Our whole weekend is going to be filled with rain so there will be no outside time for us then.We had better take advantage of the sun right now!
That boneless chicken dinner in the slow cooker sure sounds really good and the leftovers from it sound like an even better meal and a less time consuming meal for your sweet daddy to prepare!Mom always loves those kinds of meals!The kind that don't require a lot of thought going into them to prepare them and serve them!
I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses to everyone there from everyone here for a peaceful warm summer day!Loving you always and forever,my sweet Jenny Lynn and Limon too!Loving you,Dixie and flock and family and Aunt Rose too!

  Hello Jen
I'm finding out what some of these strange thing are in my Cinn-A-Castle. Mom said they are toys for me to play with. I found out what the bell s for, and after a few minutes, it makes her tell me to stop. Hey, I do like the sound it makes, and she has to be happy that I am playing with it, and not bugging her, as I do so well.

I bet you all have fabulous cage top play gyms!
We are missing summer! It's another cool day here too, but it's supposed to hit 80, so we'll see what happens. There was a strange glow in the sky this morning, and mom actually put on sunglasses. She told us not to stare at it, in case it gets scared and goes away. Even if it's gorgeous today, it will not be a pool day for mom because of the appointment with the eye surgeon. We'll let you know what's going on tomorrow.
Meanwhile, I hope you have a good day today and get some sunshine and blue skies, along with all the cuddles you have come to expect. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Jenny,
what did your dad have to do to get ready for the lawn man?
I bet Limon will love his new playtop, he'll have such fun with the wood. Is he a big wood chewer like our Taz is? How is it going for your dad having another Citron in the house, I know how much he loves them?

Did all go well with the visiting nurse today? Sure hope so...

Not a lot new here today...dad went to the doctor today to see about changing his meds so he can get his drag racing license. Turns out that the med may not be okay for dad to take so he has to go to a cardiologist tomorrow to learn more about it's safety. Dad is getting concerned that the drug won't be okay and then he doesn't know what he'll do. He loves his racing and sure doesn't want to quit...keep your toes crossed for him...

Another HOT day today, yesterday we set a record at 106º, might have done it again today...

So, you are having nice weather? Please send some our way ... 60's is too cold for summer. I saw the map that showed the polar vortex is still messing with us. We are right in the bad spot, lucky us!
What brand of cage did Limon get? Mom is still looking around for a new one for me.
Mom has a little bag of wood rings for small bird toys and will send it to you as soon as she gets her act together. It's barely a one bite for me.
We had another cold, dark and rainy day. I was busy destroying two more toys so, I didn't care. I was told I made a big mess and I will be cleaned tomorrow! Birdsonally, I think it looks nice!

and the wonderful Dallas flock and family and sweet Uncle Chuck too!
Mom left early this morning with skin sis to go to zumba class for 9:30am and they got stuck in more traffic,skin sis was stuck in it getting to Mom and they were late for class about fifteen minutes.Then right from zumba they picked up Nana and went to Trader Joe's to get all us fids some bean mix,and a few other things,then they went to the Mall for skin sis to get something with the coupon she had for Gap,but neither she nor Mom found anything they liked there,then they went to Ocean Lot where she got some wild bird seed and a birthday present for skin sis,The Dollar Tree,and Shaw's and both Mom and Nana picked up some groceries there.By the time Mom got home dad had already given us our snacks and Mom had to put the groceries away and get dad his dinner and us cleaned up and ready for bed.We never got outside as it was late after 6pm and getting cold,it was a nice warm sunny day here,the temperatures were 77.Mom is hoping to get her chores done early tomorrow so we can go outside and get another soaking shower and dry off in the sunshine!Its supposed to be a good day again tomorrow,the whole weekend will be rain,no laundry on the line for Mom then!
Please know that Mom always puts your sweet daddy's name in our special intentions book at church every week for prayers of continuing good health and peace and comfort from pain too!We are all praying for a greyt VA visit for your sweet daddy today!Limon is such a lucky boy to have your daddy work so hard at making him a new wooden playtop for his cage!

Sure would like to see a picture of Limons new play gym when dad gets it done!
Mom was busy again this morning and had to go over to skin sis too after she got her cleaning done. When mom got back she was getting things together towards supper since it had to be early eating so mom and I could visit that new vet. I went in my wingabago cause it was a bit chilly out and I like I can see out every where in it to. The vet was nice but again mom just talked to him and I didn’t need to have any grooming done so that made it lots better too for me. He did all the right things though and mom said when we need one this will be the one we will visit for sure. “I have learned its not what I have in life but who I have in my life that counts.“ Leaving a vote for you …your friend, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Jenny-Lynn and the Dallas Flockily
Hello to all my BC friends. Zeena here with today's BOTM Post. Today we will take a look at one of natures most beautiful birds, also my Momma Deb's" dream-bird", the Hyacinth Macaw.
The largest species of macaw, Hyacinth grows to be up to 40 inches (1 m) long. The Hyacinth Macaw survives today in three known distinct population in southern Brazil, eastern Bolivia and northeastern Paraguay. In 1990, the wild population was estimated to be 2,500 birds. The world’s captive population is probably much larger, numbering in the thousands. Today, the wild population is less then 600 individuals. They are critically endangered in their native habitat.
Of the 145 species of parrot in Central and South America, 45 are in danger of extinction. All 18 species of macaws are threatened. The primary causes are habitat loss and heavy exploitation for the pet trade. The Hyacinth Macaw is especially vulnerable to capture and habitat destruction because it is noisy, intrinsically fearless, predictable, and dependent on palm trees. Hyacinth Macaws do not breed every year even under the best circumstances, so the predation on chicks is particularly bad for the species’ survival. Since captured young survive so poorly (up to 99 percent die between capture and final sale), adults are sometimes trapped through liming of perches or use of baited clap-nets. Still, for every macaw that arrives safely abroad, it is likely that five died on the way.
The United States is the largest market for the exotic pet trade. In the last decade, 8.5 million birds, at least 85 percent of birds captured in the wild, were imported or smuggled into the United States. Even when the export of birds is controlled, the domestic bird trade often is not regulated. Another threat to the Hyacinth Macaw is the increased commercial sale of feather art by the Kayapo Indians of Gorotire in southern Brazil. The feathers from up to 10 Hyacinth Macaws are needed to make one headdress. In addition, ranchers kill Macaws because they believe that Hyacinths damage palm trees, which ranchers use for fenceposts, and scare cattle with their noisy behavior. In some places, local people still hunt Macaws for meat. Add to this clear-cutting of Rainforest and you can see the danger the Hyacinth population has to becoming extinct within the next decade.
Compound all the above and it is easy to calculate that their best chance of survival as a species is through captive breeding. Selling in Canada at upwards to $40,000US each these beauties of the Rainforest will remain one the worlds most desired Macaw species.
One more Question for Thought.
It is often people’s love of animals that causes them to desire exotic animal pets. What can be done to educate pet owners about the impacts of wild-caught birds and other animals?

  Hi Jenny Lynn
The guy collecting parking fees at the museum said to mom we are lucky this year. We are getting 2 Septembers! It's been another cool, cloudy day here. There were thunderstorms predicted, but so far we haven't seen any.
Mom's tour this morning was a group of day care kids ranging from about 7 to 12 years. They wanted animals, so mom started in Bird Hall, of course. She also did a ton of mammals on the second floor, both North American and African. Then she took the kids out on the balcony to see the giant pterosaur, Quetzlcoatlus, with its 40 foot wing span. There was a reason, though. When that guy stood on the ground he was as tall as a giraffe! They had just seen the giraffe, so mom wanted to show off the pterosaur. It was a good move, because the museum had moved the herps to that balcony! So while they were out there, mom did frogs, salamanders, and snakes, too.
We are hoping for better weather tomorrow, even though mom won't have a chance at going to the pool. Her eye surgeon's appointment is in the afternoon.

  Hi Jen
Limon must think he is living in Santa's workshop with all the new toys he is getting. What a greyt new home for him. We are all so pleased he is finally with you.

Today is hot again, although maybe not as bad as Monday. They are calling for a high of low 90s. I got outside for my sunbath at 9:15 (yes, I was playing hard to get again), but it was OK. Mom had to sit in the shade, but then that is probably just as well. The sun is not nearly as good for humans as it is for us birdies. When we came in Mom took me into the kitchen for some blueberry pie. She likes the berries and I like the crust, so we share.

Being Wednesday, Mom will leave me for the gym from 4-6, but since she feels so guilty when she gets home I don't mind. I get her right up to bedtime at 8:30. Besides the zumba teacher on Wednesday is really energetic, plus she has no breaks between songs. Mom's trainer takes it easy on her on Wednesdays, but Mom still comes home whacked out. Luckily she is still strong enough to support me on her shoulder, but then I only weigh 70 gms.

  Hi Jenny
It's Popeye.
Dad finally got the front yard mowed. Mom worked at the police station so dad came home and worked the rest of the afternoon in the yard. He got it all done and even had time for a shower before he picked up mom. Good thing he took that shower cuz he was real stinky.
About a week ago, when mom and dad were at Walmart, mom picked up a package of crispy tortillas. Yesterday, on the way home, dad stopped at Albertson's and picked up a can of refried beans and some salsa and guacamole. When he got home he put some frozen taquitos on a cookie sheet and used the gas side of the new grill to heat them up. Mom didn't know you could use the grill as an oven and not heat up the kitchen with the big oven. Then dad made tostadas with the crispy tortillas, the beans and other things. Mom made some homemade pico-de-gio and that's what they had for dinner. They busted up some of the crispy tortillas and they made great chips for the salsa.
Today mom is going to work at the police station again and dad is going to continue cleaning the carpets.
Today will be party cloudy and even hotter, with a high of 94 and a low of 69.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Popeye.

  Hello Jenny
All in well in my world, and things just keep getting better each day. I'm learning to play with a new toy Mom got for me. I even like ringing the bell, and sometimes I do it t the point where she say, "ENOUGH ALREADY". If she didn't want me to make noise, why did she give it to me?

Come visit me, Cinn-A-Bun.

  Hi, Jenny Lynn
Temps went down a tad here yesterday to just under 90. Still feels hot so hopefully it'll drop more today. Busy, busy again at mom's work as the scheduling was funky again. Could've used one more worker, eggspecially when it came time for the breaks/lunches.

So awesome to see Angel Christy in the spotlight yesterday. Wonderful that she could receive the BOTD honors again before BC is gone.

Have a great day, wing hugs, beak kisses and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  morning y'all !
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

love Cookie

  Hi Jenny Lynn
We believe that Christy made sure you & Ziggy & Lalo and Limon became a flock with your daddy.
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.
Hugs
Chyna

Come visit me, Chyna & Bailey ♥ RIP.
