I always wanted an African Gray parrot. They are just gorgeous and oh so smart. I purchased Rocket's cage before I purchased him. I kept looking around in stores that sell parrots. Rocket sort of picked me and we have been "Best Buds" ever since! Rocket was the second bird to join our household. His older brother, "Buddy", is a dusky headed conure. Rocket also has a younger sister, "Susan" who is a solomon island eclectus and a younger brother, "Pedro" who is a yellow naped amazon..

Hi! My name is ROCKET....rocking the house!!

I am a Congo African Grey from whiting, NJ.

Rocky, Rock Rock, Rock, Rocket Birdie, Rockers

14 years old   M

Congo African Grey

Rocket likes mashed potatoes, macadamia nuts, cashews, pasta, blueberries, orange slices and whole grain bread with an occasional bit of cheddar cheese. Rocket is not a picky eater at all, and will try most anything.

Rocket likes to hang out on the door of his cage or on the back of a kitchen chair. Rocket also likes to play on his playgym, which is on top of his cage. Rocket loves to invade Pedro's space (cage) when he can. (Pedro is our yellow naped amazon.) Rocket especially likes sneaking into Pedro's cage and eating his food and taking a bath in his water bowl! He loves his evening cuddle time with Mom. Who says Grays aren't cuddly??!!!!

Rocket dislikes unfamiliar items, strange people, and unusual situations; and he doesn't like to share "getting attention" with the other parrots. Rocket is also a coach and relief pitcher for the Bird Channel Wonder Wings baseball team. Rocket doesn't like it when he doesn't get a turn during the games to pitch a few balls. As a coach for the team, he also gets aggravated when he can tell that some of the players have not been practicing! LOL

I love how my owner keeps my cage spic and span clean. She gives me great foods and spends lots of cuddle time with me at night. She is my VERY FAVORITE PERSON. No One else can even touch me!!! You get out of an african gray, what you put into them...and Colleen is my very favorite person!

Rocket enjoys making burping and "gas passing" noises. He imitates the sounds of almost everything in the household that makes some sort of noise. He also immitates everyone in the household's voices, including the other parrot's voices and sounds! He likes to take a bath in Pedro's water dish whenever he has the opportunity to invade his space (cage). (Rocket only has a water bottle in his cage...because he made such a HUGE mess with the water bowl). Who says that CAG's don't like to take baths!! Since having his cage moved right next to Pedro's cage, he has also learned to make the sound of "Pedro making a poop". Rocket likes to do this while I am cleaning Pedro's cage, and he is still in it!! I believe that Rocket thinks that it is funny to watch, when I pull back really fast to avoid being pooped on!!! It took a few times before I caught onto what he was doing!!! Rocket has quite a sense of humor (yes, a parrot can have a sence of humor) and he is also a VERY gifted talker. I have actually had short conversations with him!!! "What are you looking at"???!!!! He is too funny and is the "alpha king parrot" of our flock!.

If you can find a way to get a reaction out of it...just do it! It doesn't matter whether the reaction is a good one or a bad one! ;-) Just as long as you "rattle someone's cage"!!!!!.

  Hi Rocket
still no hummingbirds here yet "sniff"

mom used to skin her shins all the time when she was a kid roller skating with the skates that fit on your shoe with a key, riding her bike and falling off and playing with her brothers. she never remembers a skin shin that hurt so much. she finally took off the bandage today and that made it feel better. dad told mom that if she can just pull all the leaves down on the 3rd hillside of the house he will have the lawn service come and suck them up and that is a big relief to mom. if only that darn shin would start healing.

the painter who is painting the house came yesterday at 1pm to start and left t 3pm. today he came at 1pm and left at 3pm. his work is meticulous but he works extremely slow and since he works only a few hours at a time at this rate he will be painting the house all summer. mom has 5 bushes (2 mountain laurel & 3 yellow twig dogwood) she wants to plant around the foundation but is afraid to plant them until he is done and by that time it might be too late to plant them. he told mom he was checking her outdoor bird houses and found some of them filled with wasp nests so he took them out so the birds will come and use them so he is a good guy but can't expect him not to smash her shrubs with his ladder. we had to replace the wood in several sections of the house because it was rotted a few years ago when we had the flooding inside the house and it was determined that water was draining off of the roof and running down the side of the house. well the guy who did that did a half ass job and it all has to be replaced. now that the big blue spruce pine tree has been cut down we see that the wood has rotted because the tree was too close to the house. dad wants to buy a big shrub to replace that. anyway the painter is doing the wood replacement also. today he lost his pack of cigarettes and spent about 1/2 hour hunting for them but never found them. so he painted for 1-1/2 hours.

HAPPY HUMPDAY

  Hi Rocket
the hummingbird feeders are up but no hummingbirds have been spotted.

mom has not been feeling well at all. instead of resting up and feeling better she was feeling worse and worse but continued to try and get things done. these last few days it was agony just sitting. her back and side hurt and her leg was throbbing. yesterday she didn't do much of anything and last night she felt even worse so finally went to bed early. today she is feeling better. she changed the bandages on her leg and saw it wasn't healing at all but its not infected. after cleaning it up and a[plying new bandages it feels better now. the painter is at the house and has found lots of wood that is rotted and needs to be replaced. maybe thats why we have so many ants.

moms eye is feeling better and just a little itchy . her side really hurts but that should go away. mom waited for dad, at the eye doctors, for 3 hours. she finished a book and then dad came out and said the doctor said his eye was much better and dad was very relieved. it was good mom was forced to sit there since she couldn't get into anymore accidents while reading. mom came home and then slept and slept some more and is feeling more rested. today she bought 3 yellow twig dogwoods to plant. they re good for -40F and don't require much sun.

Bad Paddy Cake was at it again and landed on top of the curtains in the bedroom and took off with the silk poop protector mom made to cover the curtains. its about 12 feet long and when Cori saw that thing dropping down to the carpet , panicked, and ran into the cat carrier for safety and wouldn't come out until mom had it draped over the top of the curtains again.

I saw it falling first and had already hoped to the other end of the bedroom before Cori even knew what was happening.

HAPPY TGIF DAY

  Hi Rocket
the painters haven't started yet. mom thinks she will put up the feeders anyway and move them when the painters start.

well mom over did it yesterday. she started on the 2nd hillside. she got 7 50lbs bag full of leaves. that wasn't the hard part. it was dragging the leaves up the hill that did her in. she slipped and ripped open her shin on a rock. she was so exhausted from dragging the leaves up the hillside she never finished the last bag. the blood on her shin dried and her stuck her jeans to her leg. the good news is their was no tear on her jeans. she was so exhausted she didn't even wash up afterwards. she just got dad his dinner and watched tv all night. Cori spent the evening pulling all the sticks and leaves out of moms hair. it was a dirty job but somebody had to help her.

mom was pretty sore when she started to blog for us. she did Coris first and just as she was about to blog for me a muscle spasm shot down her whole leg. she has had them in her foot and calf but never the whole leg. mom had to stand up and try and walk it off. today she is so sore she can barely move. then she was hanging the sheet on the bed and because her leg hurts she shifted her weight wrong and her a pop in her side which means she hurt another muscle which feels similar to a broken rib but is quicker to heal. then mom hd to go to the bank and try and set up a checking account for g-ma so mom can write her checks and the bank said their law department had to approve that. mom had all her papers proving she is power of attorney. she thinks the woman she talked to didn't know what she is doing. after that mom bought super giant bandaids with extra padding and struggled getting them unwrapped so she could cover her seeping shin after she washed it well poured hydrogen peroxide on it and then covered it in neosporin mainly hoping that might prevent scaring.

Paddy Cake has been leaving me alone lately and i was surprised that Piddy Girl flew over numerous times to visit me tonight and was doing her hop skip walk/

mom thought she has seen hummingbirds but since her feeders aren't up yet they aren't lingering. the spot where she hangs the one feeder has a bid house hanging that mom hangs up for birds to use in the winter and now mom can't move it because a bird has a nest in there now. then painters are coming to paint the house so mom wants to wait until they are done before hanging the feeders up.

now that skin bro is done with training he will be on a better schedule and be able to visit even if he is in a different state as long as it isn't too far. of course i am sure your parents will be visiting him also.

gma's hubby turned 100 yesterday and the family had a giant bash for him at the assisted living facility. g-pa was super happy whether he could remember who you were or not. his family made a movie collage of all the memorable times in g-pas life, people got up and made speeches, the historical society of oakmont gave hime a award for all his service to the community over the years, the author of a series of books on the history of oakmont talked about what a great man he was, the people living in the residence came in and told stories and congratulated g=pa. one guy said g-pa had just beaten him in a game of ping pong the day before. they served horsedouvres, wine,beer, lemonade, chicken,beef tips,potatoes,green beans,portabello mushrooms, salad,rolls,baked salmon, and then a giant birthday cake afterwards and g-pa asked for ice cream. all the tables had pictures in frames of g-pa and different family members which everyone was encouraged to take home afterwards it was a big event. by the time mom got home she was too tired to blog.

today mom worked outside and got 4 bags of leaves from the side of the house. 2 more sides to go.

mom was cleaning our cages today and Paddy and Piddy escaped and the first thing thy=ey did was fly over to my cage and all i could see was their Oh Oh's when i looked up. it was not a pretty sight. mom ignored them since chasing them never works and finished cleaning the cages and then put a super huge sprig of millet in their cage and after about 1/2 an hour they went right back in.

later mom was outside working today trying to get the yard cleaned up. it was a beautiful sunny 76 outside. while dad was in the back blowing leaves into a pile for mom to put in bags, mom decided to get the fountain cleaned out. she started pulling all the leaves out of it and found a dead bird inside. it had no head or body just it wings. from the color of the wings it appeared to be a female cardinal. at first mom thought it might have hit a window and crawled into the fountain for safety but if that happened then where did its head go? mom now thinking maybe a cat killed it, ate the head and body and buried the wings under the leaves in the fountain. all the feathers on the wings were still attached and didn't looked broken or anything. maybe it did crawl int the fountain and died and then the head and body were eaten by bugs and critters. very sad and strange.

Trump Comb-over Protected as Habitat for 300 Endangered Species

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service this week confirmed rumors that the comb-over wilderness atop the pate of presidential contender Donald J. Trump is indeed "critical habitat" for more than 300 endangered species. Among them is a rare subspecies of mite, Pityrosporum ovale, with an uncanny ability to survive in white-hot proximity to hubris, shamelessness and maximum buffoonery.

The Greater Trump Tundra ("The greatest ecosystem you're ever going to see, absolutely the BEST," Mr. Trump says), is also reportedly home to two species of owls, a jumping mouse, a flightless flying squirrel, three kinds of blind salamanders and a spotted frog. All are endemic to the region and spend their entire lifespan in Trump's face and coiffure, where they hatch, eat, mate and ultimately die. All have evolved to become completely deaf, a mutation scientists speculate is vital to their survival.

HAPPY APRIL FOOLS DAY

In response to Alaska’s massive common murre die-off in January 2016, John Piatt, a research wildlife biologist at the U.S. Geological Survey’s Alaska Science Center, said he didn’t know what the future held in store for common murres. Sadly, this seabird die-off saga has just taken a plot twist for the worst: Another 6,000 to 8,000 common murres were recently discovered in another massive Alaskan die-off — in the most peculiar location.In the beginning of 2016 an estimated 8,000 emaciated (dead and alive) common murres washed ashore a beach in Whittier, Alaska.It looked like many of the birds had starved to death, but why couldn’t they find food to nourish themselves? It’s not an easy answer, but the two leading theories at the time were:
1. “Warmer water surface temperatures, possibly due to global warming or the El Nino weather pattern’” could be impacting the murre’s prey fish. Once the temperature goes beyond a certain point, many fish will move on or die.
2. Harsh winter storms that made hunting more difficult for the birds.

in the Most Recent Die-offt he seabirds didn’t wash ashore on a beach like they did before. This time, the thousands of dead birds were found over 12 miles on a freshwater lake (Lake Iliamna) — even though the birds prefer the ocean during the winter.it is believed that the murres couldn’t find food in the Pacific Ocean and flew to Lake Iliamna to eat salmon smolt. its unusual that the lake itself wasn’t frozen.
Seabirds, like common murres, are barometers that scientists use to gauge the health of marine ecosystems.

John Piatt agrees that something’s not right, “We’ve talked about unprecedented things about this die off. To have 6,000, 8,000 birds in the lake is pretty mind-blowing, really. I’ve never heard of any such a thing anywhere in the world.”
The latest death toll between the die-off events and independent cases is 36,000. Let that sink in: 36,000 dead common murres !While researchers continue to try to solve this common murre die-off crisis, they continue to be thrown for a loop, “We don’t even know what we don’t know,” Piatt says.

Cori is a little hormonal now. mom sat down with her coffee to read the paper and Cori was sitting on her cage preening.i was busy watching a blue jay sitting at the birdbath. after a little while Cori flew over to mom. mom wasn't concerned because she flys over to her every morning and sits in her hair and then tries to get coffee. today she bypassed moms hair and latched on to her earlobe. mom screamed because she said it hurt and tried to knock Cori off with a paper towel roll. finally Cori let go. mom is grateful she didn't crush the cartilage like she has in the past. mom put her back in her cage and locked the door.I would never do that to mom, especially since i can't fly. Cori was very bad and mom should have given her a spanky.

the big fad going on now is flying drones. lots of people are now able to get closer and closer to wildlife to get pictures using the drones. drones are dangerous to wildife. the propellor blades whirl very fast and drone flyers have lost fingers because of them. video on you tube of hawks attacking drones is very dangerous because of the serious injury implications to the hawk. when the drone flys at wildlife and they can't get away they will attack the drone. i guess this is what people want to happen and so they are chasing and harassing the wildlife to get their videos and pictures. incidents of drones being flown close to nesting birds like eagles have also been reported in the Philadelphia area which could potentially cause the parents to abandon the nest and babies.hunters are also now using drones to find out where to kill their prey. PETA was flying drones to monitor illegal hunting activities in Pennsylvania. the hunters complained that PETA had no right to harass them. when PETA found out the drones where upsetting the wildlife like bears they stopped using them. they replied to the hunters that hunting would be much more traumatic to the wildlife since the main goal is to stalk and kill them. Pennsylvania tried to pass laws preventing drone use in hunting but the laws didn't pass. they have signs posted in state and national parks saying it is illegal to fly drones in there but people are ignoring the signs and still harassing and disturbing wildlife. if an area is posted as illegal to enter then if you enter by using a drone you are breaking the law and will receive substantial fines if you are caught. other states are having no problems passing laws prohibiting drone use.

HAPPY TGIF DAY
In the coming weeks monarch butterflies will embark on their return journey to the U.S., and they’ll need food and places to lay their eggs when they arrive.
In an exciting rebound, the population more than tripled in size to an estimated 150 million butterflies, but a sudden winter storm last week in the butterfly’s overwintering site in Mexico took a heavy toll.The unseasonable snowstorm and below-zero temperatures are just one of the many obstacles that monarchs face and highlight the need to give these beautiful butterflies every opportunity to thrive.

Please help the butterflies on their journey by planting native milkweed this spring. Monarchs benefited from efforts to plant native milkweed and restore habitat last year and it’s time to help these essential pollinators again. Native milkweed is crucial because it is the only monarch caterpillar food. The monarchs need milkweed all along the path of their many hundred mile journeys.

milkweed is disappearing because of human greed and carelessness, falling victim to heavy use of herbicides and monocrop agriculture.Please plant native milkweed, untreated by pesticides. plant the species of milkweed native to your area and that you do not buy it from vendors who pre-treat it with pesticides.Xerces Society have all the resources you need to find milkweed native to your region. If you can’t plant this spring, you can also plant milkweed seed this fall to aid next spring’s migration. You can plant milkweed in a pot or planter box.Ask your friends, family, school, and community gardens to plant milkweed too. Together, we can help save the monarch migration.

Bird channel is slowly disabling things on bird channel like botd and botm. on friday you couldn't blog at all because the site was down. we figure at this point we might have abut a year before they shut down bird club. mom found their web server and can't understand why they just don't turn it over to us since its paid for til 2019. anyway they say a email will be forthcoming to let us know what is going on.

even though Coris feathers still have the maroon coloring on them she is feeling better and better these days. she used to be a real couch potato and scream just so mom would pick her up and carry her so she wouldn't have to fly. every morning mom would let her out of her cage and she would climb to the top and just sit there. now she is getting bored with doing that and will fly to mom hang around in her hair for awhile as she reads the paper and then fly upstairs to sit under the sky light with all the house plants. well today she heard dad in his office coughing and decided to go in there to see him. dad was laying on the floor and she walked over and stood on his pillow and talked to him. dad didn't know she was there and yelled to mom that Cori was loose which scared her causing her to flew around his office and landed on his train collection. dad then saw she was there and put her back under the skylight after he told her how happy it made him feel for Cori to come visit him. then Cori saw her breakfast was ready and flew back downstairs for breakfast.

then when mom went to take care of me ,I jumped out of my cage because i wanted to see my daddy also.i know how to get to his office .mom had to quickly catch me before the cats saw I was loose. luckily i didn't give her too hard of a time catching me. mom is happy we are feeling better than we have been for a long while.

today was 71 and mom was outside working in the yard picking up sticks and leaves. it looked so much better after mom was done but she only got a small part done and will be working as long as the weather co-operates

it is hard to resist biting a finger especially when it is offered right through the cage bars. glad it wasn't too serious but do know it must have really hurt and glad it wasn't serious. hopefully she won't do it again and won't end up being afraid of you also.

we found the first giant black ant of the year running across the kitchen counter today. it was 65 outside but have never had the ants start invading so early before. we are suppose to get snow on thursday again.

was having a heck of a time with our computer. mom tried to fix things herself and really messed it up. she reset her default or something like that and ended up losing a lot of things. when the apple tech guy finally called her on Friday he was able to correct a lot o the problem but said when mom hit the default she ended up permanently eracing many things which he couldn't bring back. the biggest problem was her mouse. every time she clicked it ten things came up a once doing screen shots, deleting, saving ediiting all at the same time. she forgot to tell him about the music that keeps playing. a jingle from some nissan commercial so we will have to live with that.

moms being doing some kitchen closet cleaning. she found a black and decker toaster/broiler oven that is almost brand new that she hasn't used for years. she called the company to ask about the type of coating on the inside and they told her to throw it away if she has birds in the house. next mom is going to call about her cuisinart toaster because she thinks it might have some type of teflon coating also. dad likes toast and makes it all the time. mom found a toaster at bed bath and beyond that is made by Brevile which is suppose to be pdf fume free and she may buy that. she also found a broiler toaster oven made by Waring that is all stainless steel on the inside with no coating whatsoever. the broiler and the toaster cost about the same and mom thinks she will go with the toaster because it takes up less space but she hasn't decided yet dad is upset mom is getting rid of things. mom told dad to be quiet or she would take him to goodwill lol. dad is still very ill and mom is doing her bed trying to cook things he can or will eat.

Cori being very active and flying around the house and using my mom as a climbing tree. tonight she climbed up to moms neck with a cardboard paper towel holder and shredded it on her shoulder. I was non stop hoping all over the bedroom tonight.

we woke up to snow, then rain and now ice. all the shrubs in the yard have collapse from the weight of the snow & ice . they are resilient and should straighten up on their own and be fine. mom was coming home from the grocery store and after she pulled into the driveway she heard hawks calling and she looked up and these 2 red tailed hawks were circling right over moms head about 10 feet above her. then they flew over to the neighbors yrd and then flew back over moms head. either they thought moms head looked like a bunny, they were courting, or there had been a squirrel nearby when mom pulled into the driveway. it sounded like a nature documentary with them calling to each other. mom took the groceries inside and came back outside and stood on the porch but the hawks were gone and the chipping sparrows were making noise once again.

FORMER PRESIDENTS COMPANION BIRDS
19 U.S. presidents have kept birds while in office, perhaps most notably nature-lover (and Audubon supporter) Teddy Roosevelt, who not only owned several birds—including a Hyacinth Macaw and a one-legged rooster—but also kept a bird checklist of species he saw on the White House grounds. In honor of President’s Day, here are a few other notable bird-president relationships.
Several of the Founding Fathers shared their presidential homes with birds, including George Washington, whose wife, Martha, kept a parrot at their house in Mount Vernon. Thomas Jefferson owned several mockingbirds before and during his presidency, whom he would often write about in his meteorological diary, “Weather Memorandum.” Jefferson's pets apparently charmed the wife of his Secretary of State-turned-successor—when James Madison took over the presidency, his wife, Dolley, bought a green parrot of her own for the White House.
Andrew Jackson owned a parrot named Polly, whom, lore has it, he taught how to swear. According to researchers from his Tennessee home, the Hermitage, Polly allegedly caused quite a disruption during Jackson's funeral.
They say you can't survive in politics without a healthy ego. Maybe that's why John Tyler named his pet canary Johnny Ty.
Abraham Lincoln learned the hard way that when you're planning on slaughtering an animal for Christmas dinner, you probably shouldn't let your children pal around with it first. When a live turkey was sent to the White House in advance of the 1863 Christmas feast, Lincoln's son, Tad, bonded with the bird, whom he named Jack, and begged his father to spare it.

James Buchanan was given two Bald Eagles, which Buchanan kept at his home in Wheatland, Pennsylvania.
William McKinley takes the prize for most patriotic pet: His parrot, whom he named Washington Post, could whistle “Yankee Doodle.” But no president matches Calvin Coolidge for sheer numbers:the couple owned a pair of canaries named Nip and Tuck, a white canary named Snowflake, another canary named Peter Piper, a “yellow bird” named Goldy, a thrush named Old Bill, a goose named Enoch, a troupial named Do-Funny, and an anonymous mockingbird.

  Hi Rocket
This weekend bird enthusiasts from around the world will become citizen scientists for a few days during the 19th annual Great Backyard Bird Count, which is happening this year February 12-15.During this four-day event, which is organized by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, the National Audubon Society and Bird Studies Canada, people will be headed outdoors to count their local birds in the name of science.The goal of the count is to give scientists a better understanding of bird populations and distribution during the winter. The data collected can help them answer questions about how they’re being affected by factors like disease, development and climate change and how the timing of migrations may change over the years, in addition to offering insight about where conservation efforts need to be focused to protect species at risk.
The Great Backyard Bird Count first launched in 1998 and involvement has grown exponentially over the years. Last year more than 140,000 people from more than 100 countries participated, counting 18,726,079 individual birds from 5,090 different species. The total resulted in what organizers called “the most detailed four-day snapshot of global bird populations ever undertaken.”
This year organizers are encouraging more people to join. They believe the unusual weather patterns associated with El Niño may have a significant impact on birds being spotted.
“We’ve seen huge storms in western North America plus an unusually mild and snow-free winter in much of the Northeast,” said Audubon chief scientist Gary Langham. “And we’re seeing birds showing up in unusual places, such as a Great Kiskadee in South Dakota, as well as unseasonal records like Orchard Oriole and Chestnut-sided Warbler in the Northeast. We’re curious to see what other odd sightings might be recorded by volunteers during this year’s count.”
While organizers note odd sightings may be exciting, gathering data on common birds is just as important to see how they’re faring.
“Citizen-science projects like the Great Backyard Bird Count are springing up all over the world,“More and more, scientists are relying on observations from the public to help them gather data at a scale they could never achieve before. The GBBC is a great way to get your feet wet: you can count birds for as little as 15 minutes on one day or watch for many hours each day at multiple locations–you choose your level of involvement.”
Participating is easy, and free, and is open to people of all skill levels. Experts are being encouraged to help fledge newcomers and there are plenty of tools for those starting out to help identify local birds.

tonight Cori shredded a egg carton on the bed. then she thought it would be cute to flap her wings and send all the shredded egg carton on the floor. when mom looked at me she saw i had taken everyone of my treasures and had them spread all over the carpet. mom had to get down on her hands and knees and pick each piece of paper up individually to throw in the trash so she didnt get any of my treasures mixed in with it.i will check tomorrow to make sure they re all still there. it was nice of mom to make the effort because she knows how much i love my shinies.

this is not an infomercial. mom was very excited when she found this website. tired of being in a culture of waste and contributing to the massive landfill dilemmas. remember when products from the 50's lasted forever and if you are lucky enough to still own any chances are they are still working. now their is a website that only stocks products that guarantee they will last a lifetime
Tired of replacing stuff? Buy Me Once solves that problem. i suggest you check it out. they don't carry everything and are interested in know about things you think are excellent products.

if tour mom has to work an extra day this weekend at least it will be quiet and non stressful. our mom does better working under stress for some reason but it is exhausting to her.

mom spent all afternoon grooming our older cat. first she tried to get as many mats off of him without pulling her hurting him. she tried to cut them in half and then pull them apart and then try and brush them out. one of the mats had a stick in it. then mom gave him a bath with tearless conditioning cat shampoo and then put a coconut cat conditioner in his fur. then she tried to brush some more mats out. then after she towel dried him she blow dried him and he seemed to enjoy that. his fur wasn't dirty at all and he doesn't look any different after all that but he must feel better. then mom wanted to brush him some more but she misplaced his brush or else he hid it from mom so she would stop. then after dinner she gave Cori a nice shower and then bow dried her. moms sys her feathers feel very soft now and she spent about an hour preening herself after wards. i watched all this in horror and thought to myself thank god its not me

  Hi Rocket
Crowds of 30,000 people now swarm Punxsutawney to watch Phil make his annual prediction. There could be some truth to the link between clear weather on Feb. 2 and a longer winter — since sunny days in winter are often caused by cold, dry air masses, and cloudy days tend to result from moist, mild ocean air. wild groundhogs in North America often hibernate into late February and March — suggesting they may know winter isn't over without even stepping outside on Groundhog Day.

the groundhog is the largest species of ground squirrel in North America.
They dig extensive burrows that can be up to 5 feet deep and 45 feet long and
are one of the few true hibernators, relying entirely on body fat to make it through winter. Their heartbeat slows from about 75 beats per minute to as few as 4, and their body temperature drops from the 90s into the 40s (Fahrenheit).
An internal biological clock controls when wild groundhogs wake up from hibernation, but their actual emergence from the burrow depends more on daily temperature than intuition.Even aside from dedicating a holiday to it, Americans and Canadians have been very good to the groundhog. The species was relatively scarce when Europeans first settled the continent, but as settlers fragmented forests to set up farms and towns, they created more of groundhogs' favorite habitat — the edge between open and woodland areas — while also killing wolves, cougars and other top predators. Although groundhogs thrived and expanded their range, however, they still usually try to avoid contact with people.

Groundhog Day is coming
Phil is 130 years old, supposedly. The average groundhog lives to be between 6-8 years, but Phil takes a magical elixir every summer to extend his lifespan. The elixir also changes his appearance which explains why Phil may be grey one year and a youthful brown the next. the elixir does not work on humans. it just makes them fat and baldThe groundhog's name is Punxsutawney Phil, Seer of Seers, Sage of Sages, Prognosticator of Prognosticators and Weather Prophet Extraordinary.When Phil comes out of his stump on Gobbler's Knob on Groundhog Day, he has a conversation with the president of the Inner Circle of the Groundhog Club in Groundhogese. The president then announces Phil's prediction. he's never wrong, however,if the president doesn't translate Phil's prediction accurately -- which is why sometimes it looks like Phil got it wrong.

Phil weighs about 20 pounds. He is 22 inches long, while the average groundhog weighs 12-15 pounds and is 20 inches long.Phil has had many wives. While Phil has an extended lifespan, his wives do not partake in the elixir so they pass away like normal groundhogs do. Phil always finds love again, though. Phil's current wife is called Phyllis While there is nothing wrong with Phil reproductively Phil has no children - he and his wife decided they are really too busy to raise a family. But that doesn't mean he does not love kids.He considers everybody under 127 years old his kids. Phil has such a full schedule he was not able to partake in the filming of the movie. In the Bill Murray movie he is played by a groundhog named Scooter - who bit the actor three times during filming.Handling Phil is a dangerous Groundhog Day task because of his fondness for biting.He once threatened to impose 60 weeks of winter if he didn't get some booze during Prohibition. Oat and honey granola bars are Phil's favorite food, in particular Nature Valley ones.He has a special car called the Philmobile. It's a little bus that houses members of the Inner Circle. Phil has a special seat on the outside, so he can be seen on parades.Oftentimes during summer parades, crowds will panic as the Philmobile draws through because they will see Phil lying flat on his back, legs in the air looking dead. But he isn't, this is just how groundhogs cool off Some people get upset when he calls for six more weeks of winter,but it's not his fault that he sees that coming."

Groundhog Day Facts
In 1723, the Delaware Indians settled Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania as a campsite halfway between the Allegheny and the Susquehanna Rivers. The town is 90 miles northeast of Pittsburgh,. The Delawares considered groundhogs honorable ancestors. According to the original creation beliefs of the Delaware Indians, their forebears began life as animals in "Mother Earth" and emerged centuries later to hunt and live as men.
The name Punxsutawney comes from the Indian name for the location
"ponksad-uteney" which means "the town of the sandflies."
The name woodchuck comes from the Indian legend of "Wojak,
the groundhog" considered by them to be their ancestral grandfather.
When German settlers arrived in the 1700s, they brought a tradition known as Candlemas Day, which has an early origin in the pagan celebration of Imbolc. It came at the mid-point between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox. Superstition held that if the weather was fair, the second half of Winter would be stormy and cold. For the early Christians in Europe, it was the custom on Candlemas Day for clergy to bless candles and distribute them to the people in the dark of Winter. A lighted candle was placed in each window of the home. The day's weather continued to be important. If the sun came out February 2, halfway between Winter and Spring, it meant six more weeks of wintry weather.If the sun made an appearance on Candlemas Day, an animal would cast a shadow, thus predicting six more weeks of Winter. Germans watched a badger for the shadow. In Pennsylvania, the groundhog, upon waking from mid-Winter hibernation, was selected as the replacement.Pennsylvania's official celebration of Groundhog Day began on February 2nd, 1886 . The groundhog was given the name "Punxsutawney Phil, Seer of Seers, Sage of Sages, Prognosticator of Prognosticators, and Weather Prophet Extraordinary'' and his hometown thus called the "Weather Capital of the World.'' His debut performance: no shadow - early Spring.

The legendary first trip to Gobbler's Knob was made the following year.

we were happy we didn't get all the snow that was predicted. all night long you could hear the road crews working on the roads. this morning there was a car parked in the neighbors front yard. looks like someone skidded as they came around the bend and slid right into the yard. they must have just left the car and this afternoon someone came by and dropped someone off who got in the car and drove away. luckily no one is living in the home at present since it was reposed by the bank.

we apologize for not being on bird channel these last few days. lots of problems with the internet. we did manage to blog a few but most of the time right in the middle of blogging we were losing the internet. calling comcast was useless since we could only talk to robots who couldn't understand anything mom was saying. it then would tell mom she could go on the internet to talk to them yet mom cpuldnt get on the internet. we also couldn't dvr any of the tv shows so mom was forced to watch the shows on demand and watch al the stupid commercials along with them. tonight when mom once again tried to get on bird channel the whole computer screen was covered in black lines. at this point mom unplugged the computer and let it rest and is now coming back to try once again.

we didn't win the power ball or even get 1 number. most startling news we heard today is that tens of thousands of dead bird bodies are washing up on the beaches of prince william sound in alaska. the birds are called Common Murre and appear to have starved to death suggesting disruptions of herring and other fish the birds eat. seabirds are indicators of the health of the ecosystem. climate change, the 1983 valdez oil spill in prince william or el nino weather patterns may or may not be the cause. scientist and biologist are rather alarmed at this point.


more on the saga of dads winter jackets. dad has now return 4 and mom returned 2. then dad bought more over the internet. so they will be coming soon. mom became so annoyed at dad she went online on Macys and found a faux shearling lamb skin coat and bought it. no animals were used or injured in making the faux coat. it came, mom likes it and she's keeping it.they didn't even sell this coat in the store so mom is glad she looked online

when mom was picking me up tonight to put me to bed she noticed my whole head was covered in pin feathers. mom felt bad because she has been working with Cori sp much she hadn't noticed before. mom quickly preened my head, which i didn't like at all and now i have feathers once again..

the parents stayed home for new years eve. at round midnight a few neighbors set off some fireworks but for the most part everything was pretty quiet. while mom was gone to celebrate the first day of the new year at Aunt Arlenes(Falco,Willie) house dad was making me a meatball. he kept hearing something saying i love you. he looked at me and i looked back and said it wasn't me telepathically. then he looked at the bad budgies and they looked back every so innocently. as he gave me the meatball he kept hearing this i love you over and over again. finally he caught the very bad budgie Paddy who was pressing the i love you key on his little bird recorder whenever he thought dad wasn't looking. then Piddy went over and showed dad she can do it too. they are very bad but dad thought it was very cute.
