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 Jenny Lynn~Loving that warm sunshine...

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

15 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....

  Send me some of that sunshine Jen !
It's been pretty gloomy here - snow showers again yesterday morning when mom was leaving ! UGH !

Today is mom's long day, but I think it'll be easy since vacation is looming on the horizon :) Tuesdays her class has no specials which means she has no prep periods, and then she has her drama club. They're doing a western this year and the kids are having a great time ! To be truthful, so is mom ! She really enjoys working with the middle school age . . .

I hope you have a lovely day ! Hurry spring ! love Cookie

  Hi Jenny Lynn,
we had a nice day here, the parronts went to the store and got the supplies needed to do the floor in the trailer. Mom looked at the flowers but the selection still wasn't that great so she will wait a while longer. Dad did remove a couple of plants from the front garden. They had gotten overgrown and needed to go. Mom will get a couple more new once she finds what she wants...

Chica and Napoleon want to say a special thanks for the banana chips and all the birdies want to say thanks for the nuts...yum!

Wing hugs and love, Scoober

  Hi Jenny Lynn
My parronts will be doing that clean up soon. We have one day when we can get rid of anything at our township hall. Dad will load up the trailer. Mom wants to get rid of more than dad does!
I woke up to snow again this morning. But, the sun finally came out in the afternoon. Looks like rain for tomorrow. Maybe it will get rid of some snow. Where is the ground?
Not much going on here. Mom is sick with a sinus infection and cold. I took good care of her.

  Hi Jenny Lynn
and the wonderful loving Dallas flock and family
This morning was another dark dismal day with our temperatures highs being 42 and the lows being 33.Right now its 37 and fairly cold.Skin bro came and picked Mom up at around 8:00am this morning.So Mom really had no time to do much of anything except to clean all our cages quickly and feed us all.Then she collected the trash and recyclables and skin bro loaded them in his car while she got Dixie in his carrier and wrapped him with a blanket.When they got to Nana's Mom got Dixie settled in his cage there and set his food bowl down for him and he immediately started eating then skin bro and Mom collected Nana's trash and recyclables and they loaded them in Nana's car and they went to the dump,when they came back the VNA came to work out with Nana.The VNA had Nana walking over and over around her house with a cane.They are trying to get her out of the walker.But she is not to use the cane when the VNA is not there and she is not to go outside yet as the ground is too uneven and Nana promises she isn't going to try as she doesn't want land back in the hospital or rehab again!Mom and Nana were supposed to try and make at least one loaf of Easter Bread for Easter but that never happened so if Mom makes it over to Nana's earlier tomorrow they can start it then,Nana will mix all the ingredients and Mom will do the kneading.Then skin bro is going to take Mom grocery shopping at Market Basket to pick up some things for Easter dinner.They both have no idea what they will have for Easter dinner this year as Nana isn't feeling well with her broken hip,Nana doesn't know if they can make ravioli's.Mom said she wouldn't mind trying to make them as she's been helping make them for a while now.After they left Nana's skin bro drove Mom into Falmouth and he bought Mom and himself a medium blizzard at DQ and then he took Mom to the Dollar Tree to get our dad some funnels that he needed.Then he took Mom home and it started to rain again and got dark as night.When Mom got home she made dinner for my dad,cleaned all our cages and dad had already given us our snack and put our light on for us and filled our humidifier.
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs and soft beakie kisses to everyone there from everyone here,Loving you always and forever,Dixie and flock and family too!

Today mom was washing clothes and scrubbing the floors. She was in the kitchen and I let out a little noise and went flying to her. Along the way my walnut fell to the floor but I never fly with them so mom thinks I had my beak in the crack and it stuck but when I flew it fell off. Mom hugged me and made a big fuss over it all and I was ok but you know after all that she could of at least opened it for me!! “No matter what the weather may be, I can always count on chatting with my friends on BC” Leaving a vote for you my friend~~Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hello Jen~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's been a bit dull around here.
Dad is home for the day since he had to go to his doctor. Just the usual 6 month check up because of the cholesterol medicine he takes. You would think the cat would be all over him since he doesn't see him much but Merlin is still following mom everywhere. She is the one who feeds us so I can't blame him for sticking close by! You wouldn't want to miss a snack!
I will be having "turtle tank" cleaning duties once mom gets back from dropping Ian off at work. He wasn't suppose to work today but someone called out again! Ian picks up most of his hours that way!
I have the very important job of watching George and Gracie while mom washes the tank. They go into a little box which mom calls there summer home! I watch to make sure they don't escape! Gracie is always wanting to get out although I have no idea where she thinks she is going to go. It's a turtle thing I guess!
I hope your day is just wonderful! Please give dad our love and big hugs to you all!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Jenny Lynn
It has been brought to my attention that there may have been a miscount on one of the categories in the Irish Picture contest, so I would like to declare at this time that Cookie and Chipper tied for first in the Most Irish category.

I must admit I do like Mondays. Not only is it not a gym day for Mom, but Dad is off to work and not competing with my mom time. The only down side is that it is trash day. However Mom got me out for my sunbath at 10:30, and we timed it just right. Not a single truck came by while we were out there, although one did rumble past the house right after we came inside.

Then Mom helped her friend, Judy, edit another paper. Now Judy is getting her Masters in Poli Sci so she can teach at the Community College level. This paper was on the erosion of voter turn out over the past 20 years. Mom and Dad vote in every single election, whether it is a major one or just a local. She asked me to take this moment to remind everybirdy's parronts that voting is not just a right, but also a privilege that should not be shirked. If you don't like the way an election turned out, but you didn't vote...shame on you!

That said, I would like to comment on the lovely lunch Mom and I just shared. (Yes! She remembered to eat!) It was one of her frozen lunches, Basil Chicken and Pasta. Needless to say my favorite part is the pasta, and I have to admit I got more than my share. Mom is very generous with the stuff, because she knows how much I like it.

And now I am sitting on her knee dictating my blogs. It looked dicey for a bit, because she has her kindle charging on the desk, and I really wanted to chew on it. However I settled down, so it looks like I am good for the duration. How about that!

  Hi Jenny Lynn & Flock
this is a continuation of birds intelligence from blog on 3-27. we messed up on the order.
Examples of bird intelligence include…
Carrion crows in Japan that deliberately place nuts in roadways, wait for cars to crush the nuts then retrieve the nut meats, all while coordinating around traffic lights to keep safe.
Woodpecker finches in the Galapagos Islands that trim sticks to the proper length for use as tools to forage for insects.
Green herons and other heron species that use bread fed to ducks or picnic leftovers as bait to attract fish for their hunting.
Blue tits in the 1920s that learned which color of milk caps on delivered milk had the most cream (whole milk) and pierced those caps to drink the cream.
Western scrub-jays that hold funerals for dead birds by making loud noises and avoiding the corpse, behavior that may be warning other birds of fatal threats.
Northern mockingbirds that recognize individuals who may be a threat to their nests and will attack only those individuals rather than attacking all passersby indiscriminately.
Aplomado falcons that hunt cooperatively in pairs and thereby increase their hunting success by a large margin through this teamwork.
Jays that cache hundreds of seeds and nuts in fall and manage to retrieve the majority of them over the course of the winter, exhibiting great recall for their hiding places.
Other well known examples of bird intelligence that could be attributed to instinct but still show at least some higher mental capability include:
Amazing nest architecture with intricate construction
Returning to the same ranges, even the same nests, for many years
Ability to navigate migration safely despite changing landmarks
Play behaviors, including taunting cats or playing with objects for entertainment
Recognizing who refills feeders and interacting with that person
Curiosity when responding to pishing or investigating new stimuli
Showing emotions through courtship, caring for nestlings, etc.
Some Are Smart, Some Are Stupid
Like any animal, not all birds are equally intelligent. Ornithologists generally agree that corvids (jays, ravens, crows, rooks, jackdaws, etc.) and parrots are among the smartest bird species and that social, gregarious birds often exhibit more intelligent behavior than solitary species. Still, every backyard birder has seen that one "stupid" bird at their feeders who just can't figure anything out, while another bird of the same species seems to be an Einstein in comparison. Watching birds and witnessing their intelligent behavior can be a joy for backyard birders, and learning more about bird intelligence in quantifiable ways is sure to keep ornithologists busy for decades to come.

  Hi Jenny Lynn
That was a beautiful service for Angel Mario yesterday. What a great way to celebrate his life. We were there, but silent, as mom was working. On Willie's page are 2 pics of what she was doing yesterday. One of them shows where she was set up, right by the camel driver and lions, and the other shows what she had out on the cart: lion pelt, cheetah pelt, sable horn covering, giraffe ankle bone, an impala skull, a gorilla skull, and a warthog skull. The pelts were new, and got a lot of attention. It was a good afternoon for talking to folks.
Today at the center, mom did the RVS room again, and was supposed to feed the bats. When she got to the treatment room, Jess (staff) had already fed 4 of them, and cleaned their terrarium. She was feeding one of the baby squirrels, and invited mom to feed the other one. Mom gladly did that! She hasn't fed babies for nearly a year, so it was a nice change.
Speaking of squirrels, when mom walked the dogs this morning, there was a squirrel near the bird feeders in front of the house. It ran when it saw mom and the girls, and it ran right into the hide box that mom brought home and got nailed up last week, so it was one of the new kids! Mom was happy to see that. She got more squirrel mix while she was at the center, as things aren't really growing outside yet. So they will have food for at least another week.
I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Jenny
It's Popeye.
Mom needed things at Costco so she sent dad over to Costco right when the opened yesterday. She said that it would not be crowded at that time. WRONG! It was packed. Dad managed to make his way through the store and even made his way to the "grazing stations". All in all, it worked out ok.
When dad got home and put stuff away it was time to pay the month's bills. We know that dad loves doing this because of all the neat sounds he makes. Does anybirdy know what a "&%$*@@" is? Anyway, that went on for the longest time.
Finaly, dad was finished and he and mom could relax. Yeah, we'll see about that! "Squawk squawk squawk! We want our snacks!" "Oh, so mom and dad get to eat that Margarita Pizza and we get apples? "NOT FAIR!!"
Today will be clear, with a high of 84 and a low of 54.
Hope your day is fun.

Mom agrees that dad needs to ease up. Mom hasn't done anything with his phone yet but he isn't using it either. The Drs were able to calm his concerns for the most part.

Errrr, haven't read the emails about a new bird site. We will stick with BC until it is gone but the way it looks now doesn't seem to be in a rush to go.

Only seen Felix here and there and agree he is quite entertaining.

What a wonderful celebration for Angel Mario. We were good friends with him and Peepers and visited them everyday. Had such fun singing and playing music. He will be missed.

That was a fun Milonga but a short night. Sam had many songs planned and we didn't get to do them. It was good to have him back on Milonga night.
As for the new site, it is not up. Only phase one is up. Kathy is working on a major project with it. The blog portion will be at the very end. We felt that it wasn't fair to the other people to work on the other site and then not use it as we are paying for it. It seemed to be more like FB to me. I'm not a big fan of FB.
Today we had more snow with freezing rain. Maybe we'll see a couple minutes of sun on Monday. I'm waiting for beach weather.

THE MILONGA WAS A LOT OF FUN LAST NIGHT BUT I THINK BC WAS BEGINNING TO ACT UP SO IT ENDED EARLY. WE GOT KICKED OFF BC LAST NIGHT THEN IT TOOK 4 TRIES TO LOG BACK IN. THERE ARE BC TROUBLES HAPPENING AGAIN.

THE MEMORIAL FOR MARIO WENT WELL TODAY ALSO. SO MANY FRIENDS SHOWED UP TO SAY GOODBYE. WE STOPPED IN A FEW TIMES.

  Hi Jenny Lynn
A few birdies have commented on my mom's fight over getting the hospital bill from last August paid by the insurance co, and Mom would like for me to make it clear that the villain in this scenario is the hospital not Blue Cross. B.C. has asked the hospital for the records of the procedure since they used an invalid code in their billing for several months now. Apparently they finally received all 125 pages of it, and hopefully Mom's claim will finally be processed. This hospital is always a problem, and Mom has sworn to never have anything done there ever again. Of course, hopefully she won't need another hospital stay at all.

I hope everybirdy had a good time at the milonga last night. I think it went quite well, and the awards presentation was a lot of fun for me. I just love giving out prizes to all my friends and buddies. And the food, drinks and music was all terrific. How about that corned beef by Lizzie, and I loved Ms BB's green ice cubes. However when Chyna sang Danny Boy it brought down the house.

Mom went to the gym this morning, and although she came home very sweaty she took me out for my sunbath first thing because the temp was just right if we sat next to the shade of the gardenia tree. There was a good breeze blowing, so I didn't need to worry if she was extra stinky. She did take a shower as soon as we came in though. With a high of 82, if was nice enough. Tomorrow they are calling for 83 degrees, and Mom doesn't go to the gym on Mondays so we will get out early. However those trash trucks will be rumbling by, so Mom might have to put my outside cage in her lap a time or two. It's pretty big, so it really fills up the chair. Makes me a lot more comfortable when those noise machines roar by though.

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

  Hi Jenny Lynn
We want to thank everyone who hosted and worked hard for another successful milonga. Kiddo, Taz, Sam, Lizzie, and everyone else, including the dancing leprechauns, made it a great event. Congrats to all the picture winners, too. It was tough to vote this time, all the pics were outstanding.
Yesterday was a busy one for mom, and today looks to be a bit better. She is working at the museum from 1 to 4 on the African wildlife cart. It should be interesting, they got the giraffe ankle bone (cannon bone) back on the cart, and added a lion and cheetah pelt. There are also some cool skulls there to put out, a gorilla, a horn from a sable, and a few other things. It should be a fun afternoon.
After mom gets home, she's ours for the evening. It's still cold here, so I know mom will come straight home to be with us. Of course, she'll clean cages first, but then she's ours! I hope you are having a terrific day, getting lots of cuddles, scritches, and maybe even an extra treat. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Peppino, Divo & Falco.

  Hi, Jenny Lynn
So good to see you and the flock at the Milonga. Always fun to see a big turnout even if some aren't able to stay long or arrive later.

Our weather continues to be very much spring. More flowers are blooming and trees that drop leaves are already green again. It does sneak up on one!

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

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Top o the mornin' to you miss Jennifer
It sure was good to see you last night ! What a great party ! It was just what I needed - a night of green after it snowed all day long yesterday ! Yep, snowed ! Only about an inch and only on the grass and trees, but still . . . it's spring and April is just a couple days away ! Then this morning ? 13 degrees when mom woke up :( Jeeeesh ! I hope it warms up for her vacation !

Relaxing today and helping mom with some school work :) The kids are working on fractions so if I nibble a corner, they can figure out how much ! har har har !

Thanks to Kiddo, Taz, Lizzie, Sam and the Scruffy Birds, and Miss Chyna for the wonderful evening of fun !It is always a good time getting together :) love Cookie

Come visit me, Cookie - Happy Easter, BC Library Now Open & Fly with the angels my Sally.

  Hi Jenny Lynn,
I had a great time at the Milonga tonight, did you?

It was sunny today but very windy and cool so mom didn't go flower shopping today, maybe tomorrow or Monday.
The parronts have a project to do in the trailer, they are planning to redo the laminate floor as it is not looking so great anymore. They are going to paint it with a special paint so we will see how that turns out. It was going to be very expensive to replace the floor so they are going to give this a try as it is quite a bit cheaper...

Mom tried to get a picture of Taz chewing on one of the toys that your dad sent but he wouldn't chew on it when she had the camera but she did get a couple of him by his toy. He pretty much chewed it all up. The pictures won't load on this computer so she'll post them tomorrow.

Wing hugs and love, your friend Scoober

  Hi Jenny Lynn
Thanks for liking my bunny pic.
I heard that you and Ziggy were flying around today ... bet you had fun.
We are out of the teens and back to sun with high 20's today. More snow coming on Sunday.
My parronts are cleaning the basement, why they do these un-fun things I just don't know?
I'm busy getting ready to party at the Milonga tonight ... see you there or blog you on Sunday.
Hugs
Chyna

Come visit me, Derby Farms, Chyna & Bailey ♥ RIP.
