  Hi Beaker!
Happy New Year! I know that Peachy and I have not been around much lately but that doesn’t mean we haven’t frequently thought about all our dear friends here on the BC. We just wanted to fly by today to say that we have not forgotten about you, miss you dearly, and promise to keep in touch in 2009. You’re friendship has meant a lot to us (and mommy, too) and we all wish you joy, peace and prosperity in the new year. Ok, have to leave you with a “joke of the day….” Question: Why can’t a chicken coop have more than 2 doors?………………………………………….Answer: Because if it had 4 doors it would be a chicken sedan! hehehehe! See ya next year!

  HAPPY EARTH DAY FROM CAYMUS
Happy Earth Day, Beaker! Today is the day to celebrate our plant, do something positive to make it a better place, and to pass on that message to our future generations. Mom and I want to take this time to thank you for reading my “Green Ideas.” You know what the best part was? We have realized that all the BC parronts out there are the largest group of green-minded folks around! I mean, I send out an idea and I get tons of responses back that your flock is already doing these things! Now, I know there are a lot of really good people out there with an appreciation for nature and the will power to save our plant. But for everybirdy here to all have that same ideal? My theory is that us birdies have a special influence on our humans. That when they look in our eyes, they see compassion. When they see us fly, they know our hearts. And when they feel our feathers against their skin, they know that the trust we give them comes from a spirit within us all. I’m so honored to be a part of this BC family, and so my final “green idea of the day” is to BE KIND TO ONE ANOTHER…WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!

  Caymus here...
It’s a quiet day today…just hanging out listening to some Jimmy Buffet (hey, I’m a Florida bird…what do you expect?) and pulling apart what little remains of the toy daddy bought for me on Sunday. Mom should be home by the time I’m finish with that, and then it’s toy rotation time! (CAYMUS’ "GREEN IDEA OF THE DAY": If every American switched to receiving just one bill as an electronic statement instead of a paper one, the one-time savings would be 217,800,000 sheets—enough to completely blanket the island of Key West in a single layer of paper. 5 more days until Earth Day!)

Hello Beaker, just a quick fly-by today since daddy took a “mental health day” and mom wants me to daddy-sit him until she gets home this afternoon. We’re expecting some thunderstorms this weekend so it’s going to be kind of quiet and lazy around here. Leaving you a vote and a hug!

  ‘Twas the Night Before Easter – By Caymus & Peachy
‘Twas the night before Easter, on a warm Florida night**And Caymus was snuggled in his hut out of sight.**Peachy was snoring, the cats on the couch,**Mom and dad in the bedroom; all was quiet in the house.**And while the Conure was dreaming about hard-boiled eggs**(Which he was soon to consume and get all over his head),**In the sky flew a birdy not many have seen**He was yellow and blue and orange and green.**He had all of the colors that we’ve come to know**When we look up in the sky and see a rainbow.**Purples and pinks, some teal and blue**And gold was his tail, leaving streaks where he flew.**Now we have heard stories about bunnies and such**Who leave hidden treasures from his basket’s clutch.**There are chocolate eggs from Cadbury and jelly beans galore;**There are sugary treats, Peeps, bubble gum, and more.**But high in the sky, flying over the trees,**Above all the rooftops and smooth like the breeze,**Came a birdy so beautiful no one could deny,**Delivering delights to all his friends who can fly.**He had a gray beak, and a little round belly,**And his favorite treat was raspberry jelly!**As he landed upon one particular home**He looked down in the windows to see if any lights were on.**Now there was no movement or sound from inside this space,**So down the air vent he went (because in Florida you don’t need a fireplace).**Now Caymus the Conure was on high alert this night**And said, “Squawk, who’s there? You gave me a fright!”**“Don’t fret now, my friend…I mean you no harm.**But I’ve just flown in for the birdy nut farm.**I’ve got peanuts, pistachios and cashews, all unsalted.**Walnuts and sunflower seeds, too,” then he took a deep breath and halted.**Caymus said, “So who are you then, and why are you here?”**And the stranger responded, “haven’t I made that quite clear?**I have come to bid you happy Easter wishes**To you and your flock, even the mice and the fishes.**Thank you so much for letting me stop by,**But I’ve got to move on and to the next house I must fly.”**And like that he was gone before Caymus could blink**And that Dusky was left saying, “I just saw the Easter Birdy, I think!”**So the story now goes at this special time in the Spring,**If you turn your head late at night and think you see a wing,**If you find extra treats inside of your cage,**You’ll know the Easter Birdy is real, and could even visit your BirdChannel page!**

  Hey Beaker!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I’m wearing my green…are you? (hehehe) Mommy’s been sick but is finally feeling better. She still sounds weird and she um, looks a little, um, how shall I say…tired? But she has more energy than I saw all last week. She promised me today I would be able talk to all my birdy friends again so here I am…here to entertain! Q: Why should you never iron a 4-Leaf Clover? A: Because you don’t want to press your luck! (hahaha) Well I hope you have a very lucky day and I’ll fly by again real soon. Big “Patty Day” hugs from your pal Caymus!

  Hello from Caymus
Hi Beaker! I hope your having a bird-tastic day! While mommy and daddy were visiting family in Miami this past weekend, they went to Simbad’s Bird House (it’s on BIRD Road…get it?). She met three Hyacinth Macaws, a Palm Cockatoo and a beautiful and very rare Golden Conure. She really liked a cute little Rainbow Lory who would not leave her alone and would make little baby sounds whenever she would walk away from it’s cage. Heck, I even know mom’s a sucker for baby birdie sounds! Daddy was quite relieved when mommy left the store a good two hours later…he says it will be a couple years before she can bring home another bird because “the zoo is full.” But mommy and I are breaking him down, inch by inch, piece by piece…..wha-ha-ha-ha-ha! Well tomorrow is my 1st birthday and I can’t wait to see what surprises I’ll get! Mommy is even baking me a special cake that I can eat. I’m going to love it because everyone’s attention will be on ME, ME, ME! hehehe Here is a big birdie hug and vote for a great friend. Squawk at ya later!

  Hey Beaker
Hello my friend. How's it going? Wow what a snow storm. My Mommy got stuck in the driveway yesterday morning taking my skin brother to school. the plow had gone by and plowed in the end of the driveway and Mommy did not realize how deep it was. Oh well, it took only four hours to dig it out. The snow was heavy and full of ice chunks. Plus it was snowing again.Today we have sunshine but it is 0*. Too cold for these birdies to want to go outside.We got to fly so beaked the vote thingy for you. birdy hugs.

Love has no boundaries when it comes to race, religion, age or size. And as evidence of the special bond between a bird and it’s human, it knows no boundaries between species either. Happy Valentine’s Day from our flock to yours!

  Hello from The Konawa Oklahoma 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........ (we will go hit the votey thing for your flockmates if you have any before we go visit other friends

Hi Beaker, and welcome to the birdchannel. I am so sorry to here that your mom is away at school; I know I'd miss my mommy. But the rest of my flock really loves me, too and my daddy always bribes me with treats whenever he gets home before mom. The best thing is to just be in a great home where we are loved by anyone, because alot of birdies out there aren't as fortunate as us. Here's a vote and a big birdy hug. Fly by and come visit me some time!
