Sadly we lost Barney but since his passing Betty and Sophia have added 7 more babies to our finch family. Our family has grown, we now have Betty and Barney to add to Sophia and Gino.  Mom walked into the pet store and fell in love with us, she looked at Daddy and said please and he said okay.  So now we are home with lots of other birds..

Hi Cotton Ball here, wishing you a wonderful day. Patrick has a special request along with the Limerick of the Day under his Motto. Be sure to stop by and read it..the featured bird is in a unique situation and brings joy to so many humans. ( shhh) I'll give the secret away if I keep chatting. We are supposed to have severe weather today so I must get my voting done early... HERE"S ONE FOR YOU! sweet kisses and hugs... Cotton Ball (3 months old today) and the boys. Be sure to visit my brothers too...they love notes and votes too. (besides they paid me to say that)

  NOW PLAYING ... (Ö> JAKE AND FRIENDS ! ! !
You asked for it…YOU GOT IT ! Yes, indeed, Mom and I have been workin’ on a way for me to satisfy my urge to explore AND satisfy Mom’s directive for me to STAY OUT OF TROUBLE ! ! (At least I THINK this will do it…) ~~ Buddy and I have decided that we’d like to ‘explore’ our creative side; try somethin’ new; jump into a new project; STAY ON THE GROUND ! And we thought we’d try our luck at the visual arts. You know…movies, TV. ~~ You might have noticed that I seem to excel at the dramatic. So, having been told I’d be a natural at it, I’m gonna try my hand at acting! And since Buddy’s talents lie in organization and presentation (i.e. his reputation as a ‘Master of Disguise’), AND he has one REALLY WILD IMAGINATION, he’s gonna take on the role of Producer/Director. ~~ Now, obviously, this is gonna hafta be a scaled down version. Since we operating on a scaled down BUDGET ! Each day, we’ll put a scene from a well-known movie or TV program in my main pic (‘cause we just can’t afford a real moving picture production), so you can see what we’ve been workin’ on. BUT…and here’s were YOU come in…I’m gonna be needin’ co-stars. So, you’ll just hafta take a peek everyday to see who’s gonna be in the ‘show’ with me! ~~ And to make it interesting, I’m gonna give you a clue in my note to you each day about what movie or TV program the picture is gonna be from tomorrow! Just a little way to keep havin’ fun with all my new BirdChannel f[eathe]riends. No big deal. Not a contest or anything like that. Just a game. I think I’ll call it “What’s My Line?” (Get it? Movie, script, line…) ~~ Hope you’ll play along. Watch for the first clue tomorrow. AaaaaAA!! Scream at ya again soon! CRJake (Ö> Trouncin’ on your vote button on my way out…

Come visit me, (Ö> Charles Riley Jake ~ AaaaaAA! & ..

  Aloha, friends!
Mom is getting ready to logoff, but I talked her into sending you a greeting and a vote! I love when she looks around and sends my friends notes and makes new friends. I'm the only feathered one in the family, and it's hard to believe that there are others who look like me . . . or at least have wings. I'm glad that there have not been any snow days lately. It's been cold, sometimes, but no snow. Even though everyone stays home with me when it snows a lot and I get to go by the window and feel the sun, it's cold. Since Spring is so close, the sun shines more and my flock puts my cage near a window--especially the kitchen window because they are all gone during the day. I listen to classical music and enjoy the natural sun--and the lights in the kitchen. Ah, life is good! fly by soon! Beak rub, Mango

Come visit me, Mango Aloha.

Cotton Ball here, This has been a dreary day. However, I had a great time flitting about in the cage with the other zebras. Fortune wanted to get out and help mommy play cards with dad and skin sis. He jumped up on the back of the chair and then flew right on to skin sissy's shoulder and balanced but his beak hit her on the head pretty good. She screamed, OMG GET HIM. He was laughing all the way to his cage and yelling "Squawk,,,,Get him!" We all laughed our beaks off.. Later, we heard her say. "Did he go to sleep?" Mommy told her yes he just needed a little exercise to help him rest. Sis said he could leave her out of his next exercise routine. Well here is a vote for you and your fibs if any....Cotton Ball and the gang.....

Cotton Ball here, Mommy made it home from church and the little skin niece is with her. Slate and Mica moved into the bird room wirh us this morning. They moved into a larger cage. Yes, they promptly escaped while Mom and Dad were gone. They wouldn't get out of the room and just ran around climbing on everybirdies cage to visit. It was great fun, until Mom put them up. hehe We want to drop off a vote for you and wish you a lovely day. Your friends, St. Patrick, Slate, Mica, Lonnie, Cotton Ball and Fortune........
