Pedro was a 9 month old parrot that was offered for sale in a bird store that was going out of business. I had always wanted a yellow naped amazon and he was UNBELIEVEABLY affordable! He was very shy and didn't like to be touched or held, however he didn't bite. I could just tell that he would be a great bird and a wonderful pet. My son also wanted him and just had to have him. He was actually purchased for my son. Although he joined our family unexpectedly and on a whim, he is a friendly, smart and beautiful member of our flock. He is the 4th parrot that has joined us. My son had just viewed the movie Napolean Dynamite, prior to getting this bird, and he decided to name the new bird "Pedro". After we had Pedro for about 2 weeks he started saying "good girl". It was at this point that we started referring to this new parrot as female (for several years). Once Pedro became a little older and became protective of Rocket, I started to think that he was a boy after all. Pedro has never had a DNA test, but I now believe that he is a male. Pedro has became an amazing talker and is learning how to say some of Rocket's favorite phrases, too..

Hi! My name is PEDRO...the destroyer!!

I am a Yellow-Naped Amazon from whiting, NJ.

Pae, Pae Pae, Pae Birdie, Badro, poo poo birdie

11 years old   M

Yellow-Naped Amazon

Pedro's favorite treats are Lafeber's Nutri Berries. He also likes cashews and macadamia nuts, as well as Kashi heart to heart cereal and whole grain bread or toast. All of our birdies love to have a bit of cheddar cheese for a treat, too!

Pedro loves to play on the top of his cage on his play gym with all of his birdie toys. He is fond of all sorts of bird toys and spends lots of time with them. Pedro's very favorite spot to be is sitting on Mom's shoulder! He also likes to hang out on his portable sandy perch, with "the flock" during the evening, while watching tv. Pedro also enjoys his bathtime in the shower on a shower perch. He especially likes it when he is joined by "Rocket Birdie".

Pedro is a coach and relief pitcher for the Bird Channel "Wonder Wings" baseball team. Pedro is a quiet and encouraging baseball coach, but he gets mad when he doesn't get a turn to pitch during the game! LOL Pedro doesn't like it when Rocket (African Gray) just won't leave him alone, while they are outside of their cages and playing. Pedro also doesn't like to have anyone reach inside of his cage to get him, unless he is ready to come out on his terms!

Pedro started out as Dominick's parrot, but now prefers Mom. "I love how my owner gets me a morning snack even before she has her own breakfast. As soon as the refrigerator door opens, I just say "Pedro's hungry" and mom knows just what I want. My owner gives me lots of birdie toys and I play on my playgym everyday. I also like to shower on my shower perch with my owner and with my african gray friend, "Rocket". My owner shares her time with all of us flock members!"

Pedro had a strange infatuation with an orange "rubber octopus" toy that he had. He slowly destroying it, although it is supposedly "bird proof" against chewing. Pedro greets me when I come down in the morning by saying "How's my girl??!!!" Hee also asks for food anytime that he hears the refrigerator door being opened; and he says "MMMM Pedro wants food", and "Pedro is a very hungry parrot!" Pedro furiously flaps his wings as a sign of strength whenever African Gray "Rocket" is out of his cage at the same time that he is. When playing with toys, Pedro also enjoys laying on his back in his food dish (which is attached to the upper bars of his cage)while playing with toys. It is a pretty funny sight to see him laying on his back while holding a toy up in the air with his feet and growling at the toy. He also makes very dainty burping and "gas passing" noises at random. (He recently learned this from Rocket, who learned it from my son.) Rocket has been burping and passing gas for years, but his sound very manly and very loud! Pedro talks in a very delicate, kind voice..

If you want to keep me out of trouble, give me lots of toys!! If you want to keep me quiet, feed me!!!.

  Hello Pedro~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's going to be a billion degrees here again!hahahahahaha One month of summer to go and hopefully my rain will come back!
Russell Wilson is going to be a Seahawk until 2019!!! I guess he knew how much this 12th bird wanted him to stay! He is going to get a gazillion dollars! Well close to that I think! Now we have to worry about whether or not they have the money to keep the other players! I'm sure they make a whole bunch of money on merchandise so I think they can afford it! The players jersey's are 100$ each and this state is filled with people wearing them!
Training camp opens today and Taima is there! I can't wait to see the pictures! I follow him on Facebook and love to see all his pictures. Wish I had a wing span like that!!!
Have a great day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love from Seahawk Sugar!

  Hello Pedro~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!! I think it's hot just about everywhere now. I think we are going to break the record for the most days over 90 today. I guess they have been keeping the record for about 120 years.
Seahawks training camp starts tomorrow and Taima the hawk is coming over for a meet and greet! Wish we could get up there to see him but mom has to work the whole weekend. Everyone is very excited for football to start again. It seems rather dull around here without it!
We are finishing up laundry and getting things ready for mom to go back to work tonight. It's not much fun but I do have some new toys to keep me occupied!
I hope your day is just fabulous!! Stay cool and enjoy it!

  Hello Pedro~
I hope you are having a fun day! I supervised the turtle tank cleaning and now I am sharing some oatmeal with mom. I have dried cranberries in mine and she has raisins in hers. I don't like raisins much.
The rest of our morning will be spent cleaning bathrooms and finishing up the laundry. Not very exciting but it has to be done. We finally got some rain back so I am enjoying that. Who knew I would end up missing rain???
I have my gifts for my elders and am going to drop them off at the Milonga page. I'll be there but will be silent cause mom will be sleeping!
Enjoy the day and I hope it's just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug just for you!

  Hello Pedro~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's still cooler here and it feels wonderful. We are suppose to get some rain later too! It feels more like what the Northwest should feel like.
We are getting chores done today since mom did not do much this last week! It's catch up time and I have to say it's pretty boring. I want to come out of my play cage but mom has to take Jennifer to work so I have to wait until she gets back! I don't know why she doesn't trust me to be out when she is gone!hehehe
Mom tried calling dad this morning but he didn't pick up. He'll call back later. She needs to tell him that our rent is going up nearly $200. He is going to be pretty upset but everywhere in town is the same. Mom and Ian checked out all the places around here online and most are even higher. We are still going to be $50 below what new renters have to pay. They are talking about rent control in Seattle so every other city is kicking up the rents before that happens here. It's sad since they finally got the $15 minimum wage in Seattle and now everyone is going to have to pay more for rent. Things will never get better for people if they keep raising how much everything costs!
I hope your day is just perfect and that you get to do lots of fun stuff!

I hope you are having a wonderful day. It's cooler and cloudy here and I'm loving it.
It's our weekend so mom took a nap when she got home this morning. I had my English Muffin in my night cage and played with a toys while she slept. She has had to go out a few times but she's home now and we are trying to figure out what to make for dinner. Anything with corn bread sounds good to me!
It was very exciting to see your mom's pictures on FB. You have some lovely birds who live in your neighborhood. It must be so much fun to see them out there! I've got crows, sparrows, robins, blackbirds, seagulls and the Canadian Geese. Seeing what you have in your area is so much fun!
I hope your evening is just wonderful!

Mom had chores to get done this morning. The kitchen and the bathrooms were pretty messy and no one else did any cleaning. It's usually like that unless dad is home. He helps clean.
Dad is in Maryland right now and he is picking up Monster Trucks! Isn't that fun? They have to be in Connecticut by
9 AM tomorrow so he'll be driving all night. He likes that better anyway since there is less traffic! I wouldn't mind seeing what a Monster Truck looks like but they are in trailers so dad won't even see what they look like!
I hope you have a nice peaceful Sunday just like me!

I hope you are having a wonderful day!! Today is my 6th BC anniversary! 6 years ago mom and I went looking for pictures of Amazons and discovered the BC! They were having Camp Birdie and I joined! It's been a wonderful 6 year all because I have made so many awesome friends! Sure do miss Camp Birdie though! It was so much fun!
There was a fire on South Hill last night. It's about 4 miles from me. It was all brush but there was wind and they were afraid that the embers might catch some houses on fire. They were getting ready to evacuate but they got it under control. They are using bulldozers to plow it all under so they won't have to worry about flare ups. Mom could smell it at work be we can't smell it up here. I think the wind is blowing the other way so that saved me from the stink! I'm just glad no houses burned down and not one was hurt and that I didn't have to smell the stink!!
Enjoy the evening and I hope it's perfect!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's been way cooler here the past few days and we even got some rain! I was missing it believe it or not!
Last week was so busy! I did not get much time on BC hence my absence from your page!
Dad was home for a few days last week. He was still working but it was all local deliveries and he got to come home in the evenings. There always seems to be too much running around when dad is home.
I have been molting so I have been a bit cranky lately. I bit mom a couple of times but there wasn't too much blood. She understands! I'm just cranky! I am still the cute, adorable, sweet Amazon the mom knows and loves!hehehehe
Back to school is in full swing at mom's store! The kids have only been out for 2 weeks so I doubt any of them are ready to look at back to school stuff yet! Mom says they do have really cute lunch kits and backpacks this year.
I hope all is well at your nest and that you will have a wonderful day!

  Hello Pedro~
I hope you are having a great day! I hope your 4th was tons of fun! Ian told mom the fireworks went on here until midnight. At mom's work it went on until 4am! Ian told mom he went to check on me a few times and I fluttered! That means he woke me up!! It was nice of him to check up on me.
I am sorry I didn't get many notes out yesterday! Mom drove Jennifer down to her dads house. They decided to go to Olympia first because Half Price Books was having a half off sale. Ian said that made them Quarter Price Books!hahahahaha Anyway, you don't really want the Bad Mom in a bookstore because she will spend way too much time looking at the books while her adorable Sugar is home waiting for her! Merlin was locked up in the bedroom and I bet the Bad Mom forgot about that! The Bad Mom was gone for 3 hours! A trip down to Lacey (where Jennifer's dad lives) should only take 1 hour and 10 minutes! The Bad Mom bought 9 books and a reusable shopping bag for $4.17! Great bargain but the Bad Mom should have been home in 1 hour and 10 minutes!
Now mom tells me there is a Half Price Books in Tacoma and she wants to go check that store out! Tacoma is only 15 minutes away but after this fiasco I am not sure I can trust her to come right back!
It is still a billion degrees here and today it's suppose to be a billion and one! I think I have had enough summer now thank you! There are no fans or A/C left in any store around here! Guess everyone should have believed the Weather Channel when they said this was going to happen! Glad the Bad Mom did and got us extra fans! I'm staying cool!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's perfect!

  Hello Pedro~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!! It was about a billion degrees here yesterday!!! Okay, it was 98 but it felt like a billion! We are really big babies when it comes to anything over 80! Guess it's going to be like this for the next week or so. Mom got the portable A/C out and Ian and Jennifer spent the entire evening on the sofa watching a silly show on HULU about people racing around the world. It thought it was pretty boring and nothing was blowing up either!!
When mom and Ian came up here to look for a place to live, about 20 years ago, they were having a heat wave and mom thought they were all being too dramatic. They lived in Mojave at the time and it would be 122 by 10am! Now mom understands! The cool weather was a huge selling point when they were looking for a place to move to! Dad was already working up here at the time. Just like with the snow, the heat happens up here every few years.
Mom is going to drive Jennifer down to her dad's house tomorrow so I am going to wish you a safe and Happy 4th today in case we don't have time for notes tomorrow. Mom is working through the weekend but Ian is off so he'll be here to take care of me and Merlin. Neither of us are bothered by fireworks but mom would never leave us alone anyway.
The gardeners are here now and trimming all the bushes. I guess they wanted to get an early start so they don't have to be doing it when it gets to be a billion degrees again!hehehe
Have a fabulous day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Pedro~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! I have had a nice day just hanging out with mom!
Fireworks are not allowed in our complex. We actually have a security service that drives around here at night so they will stop anyone from doing them. We don't have any dry brush near us since the gardeners come every week and take care of the grounds. We have 9 sprinklers in the house and Ian will be here to watch over me and Merlin. Our carriers will be ready just in case.
Well I have 5 new cousins! They are all canaries! Mom's sister took them in after their previous people decided to move to Eastern Washington and did not want to take them along. It's really not a very far move so I have no idea why they decided to let them go. There are 2 brown ones, a boy and a girl, and 3 yellow ones, 2 girls, 1 boy.
When mom's sister got them she saw that one of the little brown ones is sitting on a nest with 3 eggs! Guess that means I'll be having 3 more new cousins pretty soon. Mom's sister asked mom if she would like to have some canaries but mom doesn't know where we would put them and keep them safe from Merlin. Mom's sister has a second bedroom where the budgies and canaries live to keep them safe from her cat. I haven't seen a picture of them yet but I hope to soon.
We have had 8 days of temps over 85. We usually only have 10 for the entire year and it's only July 1st! Guess the weather channel was correct and it's going to be a hot summer here. I have been keeping cool by taking lots of showers. It helps with my molting too!
Enjoy the evening and I hope it is lots of fun!

  Hello Pedro~
I hope you are having a great day! It's nice here this morning and I'm snacking on some apples and almonds.
They opened up the firework stands yesterday so of course people were blowing them up last night. I think this is going to be going on for the rest of the week. You can actually buy fireworks up here year round because they sell them at the Indian Reservations. They are asking people not to blow them up this year because it's been dry and they are afraid of fires. I don't think anyone listened. Good thing for me is that they are not allowed in our complex. The noise doesn't bother me and I like the pretty colors it makes but it's nice not to have to worry about anything catching on fire.
Mom has one more night and then we have our weekend! I do not know what is planned but I hope we can watch a movie and have some popcorn! Popcorn by itself would be nice too!
We just loved seeing the pictures of little Dominick on FB. He is so cute! You guys are so blessed to have him in your family!

I hope you had a great day. We had a quiet kind of day. Mom had some running around to do and then we had to get dad ready to go back out on the road. Mom grabbed all his stuff and put it on the dining room table so he wouldn't forget anything.
Once again we would like to thank every bird for their kind notes! We hope we can get more birdsonal notes done soon.
Mom went by and got Mandy's paw print from the vet today. It's just beautiful. She is going to get a shadow box and put it in there. That should keep it safe.
Mom is doing some rearranging also. We are just trying to keep busy and find our new normal.
Merlin has decided to be my best friend now. None of us realized how much he would miss Mandy. He has been trying to sleep by my play cage but I got down to the bottom and tried to bite him! He gets locked in the bedroom when mom leaves the house because she doesn't trust him or me!hehehehe

I hope you are having a wonderful day! As some of you know, we lost Mandy yesterday. It's been so hard not having her here. She wasn't there to get me out of my night cage and I had no one to share my toast with.
She was ready to go. Mom never understood that until yesterday. When mom got home Merlin was curled up next to her with his head on her shoulder. Mandy had quit eating on Sunday and when mom sat down next to her yesterday morning she knew it was time. It was very peaceful and the vets office were so kind. They did a paw print on a clay heart for us as a memorial.
We are working on a new normal around here. It's still seems so strange not to see her on her blanket in front of my play cage.
Thank you all for your kind notes. We appreciate it so very much.
Enjoy the day!

I hope you are having a great day!
We didn't get to watch a movie because dad was watching a show about making over bars! The man on that show yells a lot and there are tons of beeps when he is talking. I don't think that is a good thing! Dad got bored with it but iw as too late to watch a movie by then. Mom says we will find something and watch it early on Friday since she working. We saw McFarland on the Redbox site so we will check that one out! It sounds like a good story! Thanks for the suggestion!
Ian came out of the bathroom this morning and he had shaved his head!!! I let out a very loud "wooger" and got onto my corner perch. He was bald on the top and decided he would just shave off the hair and see if he likes it that way. He says it will grow back if he doesn't! It sure was a shock to me but I started laughing when he came to say hello to me!
The lady downstairs from us has a very old cat. She says it has dementia now and won't come in the house. It sits under my bedroom window and howls which gets Merlin up there and he starts howling too! Last evening Merlin was up there howling and dad said he would get him. He called to mom and said she had to see this! Mom looks out the window and there is an orange cat in my tree! It's not the one from downstairs. The cat kept climbing higher to get to Merlin so mom took Merlin out of the room and told the cat to get down. It climbed all the way to the top of the tree and got on the roof! It went to the other side of the building and climbed down.
Mom has seen the cat before and really doesn't like that the people let it out. There are lots of wild birds outside and since that cat is not afraid of heights, it needs to be kept inside so it can't get the birds! We live on a 6 lane road so it's not safe for the cat either! Sometimes Humans are so dumb!

I hope you are having a great day! It's been busy around here with drawer cleaning. Mom had to go buy more drawer liner. I've been doing my part by yelling and making a fuss when she is out of the room! I am the bird so it's my job to make lots of noise!
Mom is looking for new placemats but couldn't find any she liked. She is going to try Bed, Bath and Beyond tomorrow and see if there is something she likes there. Dad spilled something on the ones we had and destroyed them! We have had them for a long time so it was probably time to get some new ones anyway.
Since mom is off tonight instead of Friday night, we will do our movie night tonight. Don't know what we are going to watch but there will be snacks so you know I'll be there. She wanted to get Jupiter Ascending but it's not at the Redbox yet. We'll find something we like!

I hope you had a good day! It's been a very busy week here and today was no different. There always seems to be so much cleaning to do!
Mom, Ian and Jennifer loved Jurassic World. Mom wants to see Inside Out and Minions too but the others didn't seem interested. Mom will just go by herself if they don't want to go!
Mom did the marketing today and dad went with her. Not a good thing because dad just grabs stuff and never looks at the price! They did buy us a new food processor so we shall have grated carrots once again! The old one had a part that broke and Kitchen Aid does not make the model mom has anymore so we got a new one! This one is a Black & Decker since mom is mad at Kitchen Aid for not making replacement parts on a very expensive food processor!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! It was very pretty here and not too hot! It's suppose to get hot this weekend but it probably won't be too bad. There are big trees outside my bedroom window and it stays nice and cool in there.
Mom took a nap when she got home this morning. She took Jennifer to work and then went to the market and got some rice for us to share for lunch! It was good! Tomorrow she is taking Jennifer down to her dad's house. He has his heart valve replacement surgery yesterday and it all went great. He'll be out of it for a while and has to spend about 5 days in the hospital. Jennifer's youngest sister is up from Florida so Jennifer will get to see her.
After that mom will be home and we will have our weekend! We are still working on drawers and closets but there will be time for us to just hang out, which I love!

I hope you are having a good day! It is a wet, windy and cool day here in the Northwest. It's going to be like this for the next few days and then Summer is coming back! I'm enjoying it.
Not much going on around here. We have the kitchen to clean up but that is an everyday thing. The 12 inches between the sink and the dishwasher seems to be too far for some people around here!hahahahahaha I will of course supervise and give mom my opinions on how the job should be done. She would be lost without me you know!
Tell your mom thank you for sharing the pictures on Facebook. We just love to see them! That is one big camera she has! She really is very talented and should be very proud of her work!

We got up to 82 and there were lots of people in the pool! We had our inspection this morning and it lasted all of 30 seconds! The guy walked through the hall into mom's room and said thank you and left! They had the outside alarms going for a very long time. The gardeners were here too trimming the bushes outside my kitchen window so it was even louder! I tried to out scream them both but I just wasn't loud enough! Mom says she is very thankful that the inspection is only once a year!
Susan sounds like me! I wait until the cage is nice and clean with new paper on the bottom and then take a shower! If I'm going to be in a clean cage then I have to be clean too! Makes sense to me!

I hope you had a great day too! It got cloudy and cooler here today so I don't think anyone is missing the pool. They painted it today and then put the lights and the filter covers back on. It is now ready for water when it dries.
Mom has to drive Jennifer down to her dads house tomorrow. The doctors have been checking him ever since he has the heart attack and found he has a leaky heart valve. He is going to have to have surgery to fix it and Jennifer is worried. Mom thinks it will be okay since they do so many of those kinds of surgeries. They haven't scheduled it yet but we keep him in our prayers everyday.
Mom went over to Costco today and it was very crowded. They had all the registers open so it really didn't take long to get out of there. She brought back some lovely blueberry muffins and Mandy, Merlin and I shared one! Yes, the cat likes blueberry muffins!
It sounds like your mom had an exciting day and will have one tomorrow. Do they band them every year? It is a very important thing and your mom is just awesome for doing it!
I hope your evening is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Pedro~
I hope you had a great day. Mine was pretty good. Mom was busy with chores and spent some time looking for recipes for veggies. She found some really great ones so it as time well spent.
The pool is still empty. The lights from the bottom are sitting along side it. They plastered it so I think now they have to smooth it out again and then paint it blue again. It was warm here today so I think everyone is anxious for that pool to be open!
I hope your evening is just perfect!

  Hello Pedro~
I hope you are having a great day! It's still overcast here but we are suppose to get Sun very soon!
It looks like they have plastered the pool so it might be a few days before they fill it up. I've been checking but no one is out there. It will probably open the day after Memorial Day. The office is closed on Holidays and you have to go through the office to get to the pool. Everyone has a key except for us because we don't use the pool!
The reason they are thinking about moving the salmon in trucks is because the waterways that come from the snow melt won't be there. The rivers and lakes are okay but the little streams that allow them to cross to other places won't be there. I wonder if it wasn't there if they would just go back? I don't think it will hurt them to get a ride. The whole plan is to get them to the spawning grounds safely.
Mom can start thinking about retirement in 2 years and 8 months. Not that she is counting down but it's nice to have it so close. She it thinking she will get her SS and work part time to have her medical insurance. She'll leave her 401K alone for a while. This is what her sister did and it's working out well for her. She only works 3 days a week and has 4 days to do her crafts and just have fun! Sounds good to mom!
Enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Pedro~
I hope you are having a great day! Oh you just have to try pancakes! They are so yummy and you can put all sorts of fruits in them! I like peaches and blueberries. Mom even makes the corn one occasionally.
Our drought is only half of the state so I don't know why the entire state was included. I am hoping that someone gets smart and loads up some trucks with water and sends them over the mountain. We have plenty of water here and it seems wasteful to let the plants die when we can share the water. We share the food so why not help out?
I am wondering if they take the salmon in trucks to the spawning grounds if they will be all confused since they didn't make the trip in the usual way?
I hope your day is wonderful!

  Hello Pedro~
I hope you are having a great Sunday! Isn't it exciting that there may be a triple crown winner this year! Hasn't been one for a very long time!
My Governor declared a Drought Emergency for the entire state this weekend. I'm not having a drought but over on the other side of the mountain they are. Not enough snow this year to fill up the lakes and rivers over there!
They have already decided to use the water on the crops that would be too hard to replant, like pears and apple groves. They are even talking about catching the salmon, putting them in tank trucks and driving them to the spawning grounds! I'd love to see that! At least they are planning ahead. We are going to figure out how we can conserve around the house. Mom found out that using the dishwasher is more efficient than hand washing and that paper plate are not recyclable! Bummer!
Have you tried pancakes?? I love pancakes better than anything. Mom puts all sorts of interesting things in them! Peaches, blueberries and strawberries! She even made corn pancakes once!
I hope you enjoy the day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Pedro~
I hope your day was perfect! Yesterday I was not able to get on BC when mom had time to do my notes! She cleaned in the morning and said we could get notes done when she was done! Well, that turned out to be a bad idea!!!hahahahaha
We had rain this morning but it cleared up and turned out to be a very nice day. We even opened the window! Mom got a pizza for dinner and I had 2 pieces of crust!
Mandy has been moving around more the last 2 days and seems to enjoy hanging out in front of my cage. That's good news!
Tonight we are watching a movie and getting my notes done before I hit the night cage. It's our weekend and we are going to enjoy every minute of it!!
Enjoy your evening! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's very pretty up here. We have lots of chores to get done today so I will be supervising. I am very good at supervising.
Mom has to work for 3 hours tonight for a Mother's Day sale. I'll be sleeping when she is gone and she will still be able to get some sleep when she is done, so it's all good.
It's movie night so I am looking forward to some popcorn and something interesting to watch!!
Enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

I hope you are having a great day! It's another pretty on up here!
Yesterday was such a crazy day! Dad had to go back on the road and getting him ready and out he door is a nightmare! He really should pack up the night before! They were out the driveway and half way down the street when dad told mom he forgot his phone. Mom drove back and dad rushed upstairs, only he couldn't find it! It was packed in his bag!hahahahahaha
Dad is on his way to Utah but only made it as far as Idaho! There is a sensor in the truck that says the truck is out of coolant. This shuts the truck off and dad can't restart it! He checked the coolant and it is fine! They can't get a repair truck out there until tomorrow so dad is spending the day in Idaho! Luckily he is at a truck stop with food and it's not hot there. He can't run the A/C when the truck won't start! Who knew there were so many gadgets on trucks these days? Just more stuff to breakdown!
I hope your day is wonderful and that you get to do lots of fun stuff!

  Hello Pedro~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Dad took over the computer yesterday to watch the West Wing so I never got to get my blogs done! I suppose I have to share it with him since he bought it! He has seen the West Wing several times but is watching it from start to finish again!
I got to watch Thor 2 last night! Ian and Jennifer have been watching all the Marvel movies in order leading up to the Avenger 2 release tonight! Since they were starting them when mom left for work, I had to go to the night cage and missed them all!
Mom, Ian and Jennifer are going to the 8pm showing! Dad didn't want to go so he'll be here with me, Mandy and Merlin. I will get to see it when it is released on Blue Ray. I can't wait because I know it will be very exciting! They are all very exciting movies and you know how much I love watching things blow up!
Today will just be more chores once I'm done with my note!
I hope your day is just perfect!!

  Hello Pedro~
I hope you are having a fantastic day! We are getting mom ready to head back to work tonight. She'll have to work 6 days this week but then she will have a 3 day weekend! YAY! They are going to go see Avengers II! I will have to wait for the DVD since I hear that movie theaters are not a good place for birds!
I have been busy this morning deleting birds from the hatchday list and the memorial list. I usually delete a bird who has not been on BC for a year since I figure after a year they probably aren't coming back. Today I had several request from flocks to delete their names. Some of their pages have been deleted also. They have other projects they are going to be working on and will not have the time for the BC right now. If you see a friend missing from the list, I did not mess up, it was just a request from the flock!
I hope your day is spectacular and that you get to do lots of fun things!!

  Hello Pedro~
I hope you are having a great day! It was pretty nice here today. It was suppose to rain but it didn't so I had a nice sunny day! The rain will be back tonight but that is just fine with me. Since we didn't get much snow this winter, we need all the rain we can get! They say that the Northwest is going to be the hottest place in the country this summer! I am not looking forward to that!>
How is your mom feeling? We hope she was able to catch up on some sleep! It's just awful to wake up and not be able to get back to sleep. Happens to mom sometimes too and she hates it. We just hope your mom can relax and take care of herself! Easy to say and hard to do sometimes, but she deserves some peace and quite too!
Mom got new tires for the car today. She had one tire that was going bald and decided to replace them all. It's been a few years since she got tires so it was time. It only took 45 minutes since the place was empty. She goes to a place called Les Schwab tires. She and dad have been buying tires from there for a long time and the people are always very nice and will do repairs for free. Once many years ago, they stayed late to fix a leak in mom's tire and she never forgot that. Those are the kinds of companies we like to give our business too!

  Hello Pedro~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's sunny and windy here. We had to put the fireplace on for a bit just to warm up the living room. We got a bit of cold weather for a few days but since they really needed the extra snow in the mountains I am just fine with it.
Mom had to renew Merlin's "Home Again" chip this morning. They charge $17.99 a year but that is not bad at all. With him being such a crazy cat it is necessary to keep all the info updated just in case he does get out. Everyone has learned to be vigilant when he is around so hopefully it is a service we never have to use.
Mom is feeling much better today. We have some cleaning up to do and then she needs to stop by the market. No bread or milk in the house!! Mandy will be getting a bath also. Then mom will be back to work tonight. She is not going to work on Friday night since there really isn't any reason to. She'll just take a vacation day for Sunday night.
I hope your day is just perfect!

I hope you are having a great day! Yep! This is a new one for BC. Blogs invisible and not updating! Very creepy! I can not update anything~no Calendar, no BOTD list! I was able to ad Jake's royal portrait thought only is doesn't always show up when I go to look!! I'm pretty sure it's there!
I had a seagull come visit outside my window this morning. They usually hang out at the Burger King up the street mooching french fries from people! Mom says it heard me making all this noise and came to see what was the matter! I don't believe her at all! I think she is just trying to make me be quiet but when the joy wants to come out, I let it out!hahahahaha

  Hi Pedro
It's so much better when mom is at home, isn't it? We hope her workday goes fast, too.
There's not much going on here. We don't have any flowers except crocuses in bloom in our yard, but as mom was walking the dogs this morning, she saw hyacinths, grape hyacinths, daffodils, and even some tulips in bloom. We have what mom calls a microclimate zone here, since we are close to the woods. Our flowers are a week or so behind the rest of the neighborhood. It's okay, though, it means mom and the dogs get to enjoy flowers twice as long, since they can see the other yards, too.
Mom will do some shopping today, but other than that, we have her for the rest of the time. I hope you are having a wonderful spring day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo and Divo, mom loves you both, Willie, Peppino & Falco.

  Hi Pedro
The wildlife rehabilitators all depend on nice folks like your mom to bring patients to them. Without her and people like her, lots more animals would die, never having a second chance at life. The bats are crucial, too, because they are insectivores and eat tons of mosquitoes in the wild.
We are getting rain today. When mom started out on the dog walk, she left the umbrella because it was not raining at the moment. She should have known to carry it to ward off the rain, haha. The walk wasn't too long, for sure, because the rain started soon after she left.
Today looks like laundry day. Lots of table linens as well as the usual stuff need to be cleaned. Later mom will scrub cages, we think. She does that all too often to suit us, but what can I say? We are waiting for the contractors to call with prices on the kitchen, too. Hope they call soon. Mom is off today and tomorrow, which is good, because her left eye is still pretty sore from yesterday. This will give her a chance to rest it, in between laundry and cleaning, haha.
Hope you are having a great day and getting some spring weather, as well as lots of cuddles and scritches. Oh, mom posted a pic of the pastel deviled eggs, so you can see how cute they are. They were all eaten, so must have tasted good, too. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Pedro
Mom volunteers at a local wildlife rehabilitation center, and that's where she is caring for the bats. They hope to release all of them, that is the primary goal at the center. Last year the center took in nearly 3000 animals, and released nearly 2000 of them, which is about double the national average of wildlife releases.
Since they are rabies vector species, only the volunteers with pre exposure rabies shots can work with them, so every time mom is up there, she's the only one with shots other than staff. They assign her because it's time consuming and the staff can better spend their time with other animals. Did you see the owlet on my page? That's the first great horned owlet the center got this year, and our resident education owl, Martha, has already been introduced to and accepted her first foster baby.
Sorry, I'm just going on and on. You did a great job in the kissing booth! Peppino is there for the next couple of weeks, so I hope you'll go by and visit him. Mom is donating a quarter a kiss to the wildlife center, and Frank is donating a quarter a kiss to Deb Thrift's account with that vet in Canada.
Mom is making us keep it short today. She had an eye appointment this morning and needed another shot. It's been 5 months, though, so she said she wasn't going to complain. It's just that both her eyes are still dilated, and the left one feels scratchy, which always happens after a shot.
I hope you are having a good day, and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco
