I was walking through the pet store and he and his brother were on the floor walking around. Dixie started to crawl up my leg and I picked him up and looked into his big beautiful eyes and that was that..

Hi! My name is Dixie

I am a Green-Cheeked Conure from Marstons Mills, MA.

Keets, Keetsie

22 years old   M

Green-Cheeked Conure

Dixies loves fruity pebbles, peanut butter, all kinds of fruit and food.

favorite hangout spots are snuggling inside my bathrobe or coat at night watching t.v or on my shoulder as I move through the house. Also he likes to go walking with me in the good weather on his harness or in his carriage.

Doesn't like to be kept in the cage all day. He doen't like it when he can't be out where all the action is. And he doesn' like it when he sees my suitcase when I go on vacation. He will pull all the underwear and soxs out of the luggage. Dixie also doesn' like taking his meds and will give me a good fight. If I don't hide it in his favorite foods good enough, he will know and won't eat it.

Mom spoils me the most and I get to eat off Dad's plate and don't have to spend time in the cage when Mom's home and I get so much love and kisses everyday! And snuggle time!

Dixie loves to take showers in the kitchen sink and spray water all over the place. He also loves to flap his wings in the shower on his shower perch. Dixie also likes to walk around the bird room floor looking for crumbs..

Have wings will travel. Must be where the action is..

  Sugar waddles quietly through the house~
and tip toes down the hallway. She peeks around the corner and sees Dixie waiting by the bird room door! She rushes into the room and throws her wings around Dixie. She holds him tightly and tells him how very happy she is to be here tonight. She has been waiting all day to get over here!!

"How are you tonight? I hope you had a great day. I am very happy to hear that you ate very well at Nana;s. It makes me feel so much better to know that you are eating.. I have been so worried about you!"

The friend waddle over to the platform and snuggle close together. Sugar hands Dixie the Hello Kitty lunch box. He opens it up and finds 2 coconut covered cupcakes. He places the cupcakes on napkins for them while Sugar pours them each a mug of hot cocoa with cream!
They nibble on the cupcakes and sip the cocoa while Sugar starts to read the book she has for them tonight!

"This book is called "Curious George and the Dog Show".
George is going to a dog show. He has visions of the dogs doing all sorts of tricks and everyone have a great time! When he gets to the show George sees there are lots of dogs there. They are all just standing, walking and doing a bit of running around a ring. George thinks it is pretty boring. Why aren't they doing any tricks.
After the show George goes back to visit with the dog when the show is over! He really likes all of them and decides to take him home. While their owners are collecting their ribbons, George takes the dogs to his house! He wants to know how many new friends he has but the dogs won't sit still! He puts the big dogs in one room, the hairy dogs in another room and the small dogs in yet another room. Now he can count them! There are 9 dogs all together. They are having a great time playing together when the Man in the yellow hat comes home! He is shocked to see all the dogs running around the house! He calls the dog show and lets them know that the dogs are at his house! The owners come over to pick up their dog and George waves goodbye to all of them. The dog show was pretty boring but having all the dog over for a play date was great!"

MY SWEET WONDERFUL FIBLINGS. I JUST SO LOVE YOU. I AM GLAD THAT YOU LIKED THE PICTURES I MADE USING YOU FOR A GREAT CAUSE. TOO MANY ANIMALS ARE BOUGHT AS GIFTS THEN ARE TOSSED AWAY OR IGNORED. ONLY RESPONSIBLE PEOPLE SHOULD HAVE A PET AS WE ARE LIVING BREATHING CREATURES THAT NEED LOVE AND ATTENTION. MOM THOUGHT THAT YOU WOULD LIKE THEM.

WOW THAT IS SO NICE TO HAVE ALL OF YOU WORKING TOGETHER MAKING THINGS FOR EASTER. I BET YOU HAVE A WONDERFUL EASTER WITH YOUR FAMILY.

DID THE VNA SEE THE FOOD BEING MADE? DID SHE SEE HOW WELL NANA IS DOING WITH COOKING AND SUCH? I THINK THE ONE THING THAT NANA MIGHT HAVE TROUBLE USING WILL BE THE VACUM. YOUR MOM MAY HAVE TO GO OVER TO DO THE VACUMING FOR AWHILE TILL NANA IS FULLY BALANCED AND CAN HANDLE IT WITHOUT CANE OR ANYTHING. USING A VACUM MAY LOOK EASY BUT IT TAKES ALOT OUT OF THE BODY. THAT WHEN YOU FIND OUT HOW MUCH YOUR BACK OR ARMS AND LEGS FEEL WHEN DOING ANY VACUMING. THATS WHY MOM ONLY DOES IT ONCE IN AWHILE HERE AT HOME. ITS ALSO HEAVY, MOM IS TRYING TO TALK G-PA ITO GOING TO BUY A NEW ONE AND HOPEFULLY IT WILL BE LIGHTWEIGHT BUT CAN SUCK UP SEEDS AND PELLETS WITH EASE.

MOM WENT TO THE GYM TODAY. SHE DID HER SITUPS (2 SETS OF 70 THEN 2 SETS OF 80) AND PUSHUPS (45). THEN SHE CONCENTRATED ON DOING A LOT OF THE MACHINES FOR LEGS AND ARMS. SHE DECIDED TO STAY OFF THE TREADMILL TODAY. HER LEG IS DOING BETTER BUT DOESN'T WANT TO AGGRAVATE IT. WHEN SHE GOES ON THURSDAY TO MEET WITH HER TRAINER, SHE WILL JUST DO A LIGHT 30MINS ON THE TREADMILL. MOM WILL NOT GO ABOVE ELEVATION OF 6 WHEN DOING THE TREADMILL.

WE HAD A VERY NICE SPRING DAY AGAIN TODAY. THE SUN WAS IN AND OUT OF THE CLOUDS, TEMPS WAS IN THE UPPER 50'S AND A SLIGHT BREEZE. TOMORROW WILL BE IN THE LOW TO MID 60'S. WE CAN HANDLE THIS TYPE OF WEATHER PERFECTLY.

MOM AND G-MA ARE GOING TO GET THEIR HAIR CUT TOMORROW. MOM'S HAIR IS GETTING TOO LONG TO SPIKE ANYMORE. THE BACK IS ALSO DOING THE FLIP UPWARDS WHICH LOOKS STUPID.

WE ARE NOT SURE ABOUT WHAT WE ARE DOING FOR EASTER YET. WE MAY BE GOING TO MOMS BROTHER'S HOUSE. MOM HASN'T SEEN HER NEPHEWS SINCE CHRISTMAS. MOM DIDN'T EVEN GET A BIRTHDAY CARD FROM HER BROTHER.

MOM SAYS IF ITS NICE OUT SHE IS GOING TO TAKE HER CAMERA WITH HER NEW MACRO LANS AND GO AND SEE WHAT SHE CAN TAKE PICTURES OF. NO FLOWERS YET BUT THERE ARE SOME BUDS ON THE TREES. MOM ALSO WANTS TO GET A GOOD BUG PICTURE TOO. SILLY MOM.

SENDING YOU THE SWEETEST BEAKIE KISSES AND WARMEST WING HUGS.

PRAYERS FOR EVERYONE TO BE WELL AND HAPPY.
PRAYERS FOR NANA TO CONTINUE IN GETTING STRONGER EACH DAY AND FOR DIXIE TO HAVE MANY PAIN FREE DAYS. PRAYERS FOR SKIN SIS TO BE STRONG AS SHE GETS READY FOR HER UPCOMING SURGERY. PRAYERS FOR SKIN BRO FOR SOMEONE TO TAKE A CHANCE AND GIVE HIM A JOB SO HE CAN BE ABLE TO PAY HIS BILLS AND AND MAYBE START SAVING A FOR A NEW CAR THAT HE SO NEEDS.

WITH ALL MY LUV,
KACEY

  Heya, Dixie!
Stopping by to check up on ya. Hope you are doing okay, and that your Mom is just taking a day off from blogging cuz she is running all over the place and is tired. Sure do understand that one! Mom fell asleep at the puter on Friday again. And she is gonna get your blog in and that will be it for tonight.

Sunny day, around 50 today. Mom says it was great to walk outside, and to the park overlooking the lake front. Water was super blue, too! I hope she takes me down there one day when it gets warm out so I can see the water. She says she wants to do that. And you know I will love going anyplace with her.

Not much else going on here. Sending you our love and prayers and good thoughts, and hope you eat something today. Lizzie made some of her famous whipped sweet potatoes for you...and I can tell you, they are super yummy! Wing hugs and beaky kisses coming your way and to all in your flockily, too!!

  Hi Dixie
Somehow we got out of sync here so stopping in to see how your feeling and congratulate you on winning Most Irish at the milonga in case I didnt already. I hope your eating better and things are moving along well for you and your flock and family too. The memorial for Mario was very nice but so sad. Dad went out for the paper this morning and to mail some things in the mailbox. He saw a bunny had gotten hit on the road a little down from our drive way. He scooped it off the road with a shovel and then buried it. For two years there has been this one here along with two others about a year now for them. Mom and dad think this is the one that was here the longest and stayed under our shed and dad always feeds them. Mom and dad both felt bad . “No matter what the weather may be, I can always count on chatting with my friends on BC” Leaving a vote for you my friend~~Hugs, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Dixie
Your mention of the Dollar Tree made my mom think of something for your mom. We have 99 cent stores here, which I am sure are the same thing. That is where Mom buys her socks for the gym, since she has baby feet and can't wear the ladies sizes. I bet your mom's feet are just the same. Those kids socks are super, and they are so cheap at those stores. Mom has a pair in just about every color. She just holds them up to her feet to see if they will fit, and off she goes. Usually they are 3 pair for 99 cents!

Well, Mom got me outside for my sunbath today at 9:45, and even though the weather geeks are claiming it is a high of only 75 today we were quite comfy out there. Mom thinks it is a lot closer to 80 for a high.

Then Mom ran off to the gym for zumba. She always wears pink on Tuesday, because her trainer, Becky, hates pink and Mom doesn't work out with her on Tuesdays. However she then made a point of finding Becky and making her look at her pink shirt and socks. Mom is verrry mean! She stopped at the store on the way home to drop off a script and pick up some more frozen lunches. She got a Butternut Squash ravioli for our lunch today which they have been out of for a while, which made me mad because it is one of my favorites. All sorts of goodies for a birdie to love in there.

And now we are blogging. I was sitting quietly on Mom's knee, but now I am on the desk chewing on the ball of string sitting there. Since it is for making birdie toys, Mom decided that is acceptable behavior. Yippee!

Don't forget today is the last day to vote for our dear little BooBoo for BOTM, although between you and me I am sure she has won. What a wonderful and educational campaign she has run. Next up is Mikey D, and his campaign looks pretty eggciting. April will be another greyt month here on the BC.

  Hi Dixie
Birds can be helpful to each other in many ways. The most familiar form of cooperation is when an owl or hawk appears in the neighborhood, causing every songbird within a quarter of a mile to sound alarm calls and even dive at the predator. Perhaps the most interesting form of help is when young birds of the first brood of the year help their parents raise the second brood of the year. There have been many reports of juvenile eastern bluebirds carrying food to the nesting houses containing their parents’ second brood.American crows and Florida scrub-jays demonstrate some of the same cooperative behavior, when sexually immature one-year-olds help their parents gather nesting material, protect the territory, and carry food for the next generation.Cooperation occurs among acorn woodpeckers of the Far West, when groups of up to 10 birds live together, year-round, jointly defending the communal territory, gathering food, and together incubating eggs and feeding the nestlings of each pair in the group.

Sometimes birds of different species lay eggs in the same nest. This has happened among American robins and northern cardinals. The two species take turns incubating eggs, sometimes sitting side-by-side, and jointly feed the young when they hatch.There are also adoptions. For example, a male Carolina wren started feeding an incubating female house wren. When the eggs hatched, the male Carolina continued by feeding the babies, causing both of the true parents to desert, leaving the rearing of their young to the foster father.

This is my last day of my campaign and I want to thank all of you for your help in making my campaign a success. it has been so much fun visiting with each of you every day. i apologize for not being able to answer all your comments individually but i did read every one and enjoyed them very much. i love you all so much.

  Hi Dixie
I'm sorry the books haven't arrived yet. I hope they didn't all get destroyed! Sugar got hers, though, so it gives me hope that you will get one package, too.
Mom is cooking wedding soup, Easter bread, ham, roasted potatoes, whatever veggie her daughter makes, and salad for Easter dinner. Not sure about dessert yet, we haven't planned it so far.
Just a brief mention of the cart contents: the animal pelts that mom displayed were hunted probably 100 years ago, when guys went and trophy hunted. A lot of the collection is from a guy named Childs Frick, a friend of Carnegie's and son of Henry Frick, whom you might remember from Peppino's blogs. If the pelts are newer, they were donated by the zoo after the animal passed away.
Mom added stuff to the squirrel mix she brought home yesterday, some kibble and more nuts, so she has a lot of food now for the released squirrels.
Today a guy is coming over to measure the cabinets and show mom what's available. She is anxious to see what he has to offer. Then later, she will go to PetSmart for a few doggie things, like new tie outs and maybe a new leash. She wants to look for a treat pouch that hooks onto her jeans if they have them, too.
After that, she's ours for the rest of the day. I hope you are having a great day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Peppino

It's Ginger.
Yesterday was "work in the yard day" for dad. He edged the front lawns to get them ready for mowing and then he cleaned up the south side of the house Guess he wasn't sore enough so he cleaned up the flower bed along the back fence and then mowed the weeds in the backyard. Now he's real sore. Then he took a shower and grilled steaks for dinner. This morning we can hear him creaking and moaning and groaning. "Hey dad! Look at the date on your driver's license. You're not as young as you used to be. Lighten up!"
today will be partly cloudy with a high of 79 and a low of 55.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Ginger.

  Hi Dixie,
I just checked the NTT page and saw you had up the songs for this week. I can't believe you're doing it!! That is so kind of you. You have been through so much and you are still preparing
a list of songs and a theme for the contest. You two are very dedicated. I know I need to get you my pictures for winning the themes. I had won the theme last week too but with all you were going through with Mario and Nana, I didn't mention it! You have too much to do right now.

Hope that mom is feeling better today!! Leaving a vote for you. Talk to you soon!

Your friend,
Chipper

  Hi Dixie
Mom came home before sunset, whoo hoo! She came into our room and had some leftover home made hamburger helper. She sat on the floor next to Josh's cage and said "want some?" (Josh always said that to mom and then would bow his head at the bars of his cage for a head scritch. Josh ate some of mom's dinner while and said a few things then he reach out and grabbed her fork and threw it on the floor. So ended dinner. Then Miranda and CuBird went upstairs to the PEC Parrot ENrichment Center where mom worked on a few toys. As the sun was setting, Cu didn't want to sit on the play stand near the window and chose one close to mom. Miranda said it was a pretty sunset and enjoyed playing with the toys on the stand. Then the girls came back to our room and Doo came out to watch some tv with mom while dad was out at his bible study class. Doo made sure mom drank half her container of barium for today's CT scan and then he came back and we all had our scriches and tuck in along with a treat. As usual, I wasn't much interested in the treat and rubbed my head over mom's hand. I hope tonight I can come out for a while and check out the PEC and help mom with the music. She also said we can watch dvd's in the guest room as well. So while we do not have run of the entire house, we are getting out and having fun. We are soooo happy that you are eating sweet little frother! And how wonderful that nana is using her cane! Mom is not doing anything for Easter as she is not up to it. I am hoping for at least for some hard boiled eggs as I know Moggie loves them as well. Have to move mom along for room service today, since she has to be at the hospital at 7:30 for that scan. Oh, and mom should be home at a reasonable hour tonight so she will visit with your mom. Love and winghugs, Cookie

  Hey Dixie,
Thanks for the prayers for us.

I can't wait to go fish-kin too, I'm gonna need it after this collar comes off I tell ya!

But at least mom is giving time with it off, but once she sees me picking at it that darn collar goes back on me! :(

I'll keep you posted on Laka's test results, it should be in by Wednesday.

I'm glad you liked the pineapple cake. I like to eat cake for breakfast too, but only on certain occasions of which I don't know. Only when mom lets me have some I'm a happy camper.

Mom is gonna make cake for Dr. Byrd, hopefully it will be my last visit too.

It'll say, Thank you Dr. Byrd! Love, Sneaky Pookie :)

That sounds about right, don't it? ;)

I'll let you know what she says after she tries it. :)

Here's a vote for you buddy and hope your eating more now. :)

Gotta keep your strength up, so we can plan our fish-kin day. Okay?

And I'll try not to pick on my boo boo, is that a deal?

Dixie says okay, deal!!

Love & hugs,

Sounds like Nana will b doing a 5K by summer. This is greyt news! AND, you had a good lunch at Nan's ... also wonderful news. I'm so proud of you. You have to keep up your strength.
Easter will be sad for me. My parronts have to go to the b-friend's parronts house for dinner. They live 4 hours away. So, dad will be driving 8 hours with a little help from mom. I will stay home and fishsit for dad.
I woke up to snow again this morning. But, the sun finally came out in the afternoon. Looks like rain for tomorrow. Maybe it will get rid of some snow. Where is the ground?
Not much going on here. Mom is sick with a sinus infection and cold. I took good care of her.
Time for bed my friend ... I'm going to sing Summertime (cause I want summer).

  Dixie and Sugar love the cookies and the cocoa. They both smile at the story because they understand how much you can miss Mama when she is gone! They both miss their mama's when they are gone too!

Sugar cleans up after their snack and props Dixie's legs up onto the Hello Kitty pillow. She massages his legs and asks about the rest of this day. She hopes Nana is feeling well and getting stronger everyday! She asks how Aunt Rose is doing and if she is getting enough rest!
Sugar tells Dixie that her dad had two doctor appointments today so there was a lot of running around. It's all done for another 6 months now.
Jennifer came home from her dad's house yesterday and was very sick again. Sugar guesses that the cold was not completely gone. Jennifer did not go to work today but slept most of the day! She came by to say hello to Sugar but did not get too close. Sugar sure hopes Jennifer is feeling better tomorrow!

Soon the friends are yawning and stretching their wings. It is time to get some sleep!
Sugar wraps a wing around Dixie and gives him a kiss goodnight. They say their prayers and include a special one just for Nana.
Sugar has her own prayers just for Dixie. She loves him so very much and thanks the Lord everyday for bringing him into her life!

Sleep tight and sweet dreams Bird of My Heart! ♥
I love you to the Moon and back!

"How are you tonight? I am so happy to hear that you went to Nana's house and ate lots of good things! I have to tell you that you are on my mind all the time now and it makes me feel so much better to know you are eating!!!"

The friends waddle over to the platform and snuggle close together. Sugar hands Dixie the Hello Kitty lunch box. He opens it up and finds egg shaped sugar cookies inside! He place the cookies on napkins for them while Sugar pours them each a mug of hot cocoa with cream! They nibble on the cookie and sip the cocoa while Sugar reads them the story she had for them tonight!

"I thought about this book when you said you were missing your mom! It is "Llama, Llama Misses Mama". We have read it before but I love this story. Hope you do too!
Llama Llama warm in bed, Wakey, Wakey Sleepyhead!
It is Llama's first day of school! He gets up and makes his bed. He gets dressed, has breakfast and brushes his teeth. He and Mama are off to school!
After Mama parks the car, she introduces Llama to his teacher. The teacher tells Llama how much fun he is going to have and how many new friends he is going to make!
Mama kisses him goodbye and leaves. All that Llama can think about is that Mama has left!
There is storytime but Llama doesn't want to read that book. They have blocks and trains to play with but Llama doesn't want to play! He wants Mama to come back!
They have their lunch but Llama doesn't feel like eating! He really misses Mama and wants her to come back! He starts to cry. Everyone gives him a hug and tells him not to worry. Mama will be here when school is done. Llama starts to feel better and goes outside to play on the slide. He comes back in and draws a picture for Mama. When he turns around, Mama is there! He takes Mama out and shows her the playground and the slide! On the way home he tells her all about his day!
When Mama tucks him in that night he tells her how much he loves her! He tells her that he loves school too!"

MY DEAR SWEET KALLIE, PEEPERS , CANDIDA AND DIXIE. YES THE MEMORIAL FOR MARIO WAS BEAUTIFUL YESTERDAY. DID YOU SEE ANGEL MARIO IS OUR BOTD? HOW WONDERFUL.

OH I CAN'T BELIEVE HOW GOOD NANA IS DOING IN HER THERAPY. SHE IS A STAR PATIENT. OH I DO THINK NANA WILL BE USING A CANE IN NO TIME ONCE SHE IS CONFIDENT IN HER BALANCE. SHE MAY NEED TO GO TO A PHYSICAL THERAPY PLACE TO LEARN HOW TO WALK ON UNEVEN GROUND LIKE GRASS. WHEN MOM HAD HER KNEE SURGERY THEY HAD HER STAND ON ONE OF THOSE SMALL TRAMPOLINES AND THROW A BALL AT A NET WHILE STANDING ON BOTH LEGS, THEN SHE HAD TO DO IT STANDING ON HER RIGHT LEG THEN ON HER LEFT LEG. THATS HOW SHE LEARNED HOW TO BALANCE.

I HOPE THAT SKIN SIS WILL DO JUST AS WELL IN HER THERAPY. NOT SURE EXACTLY WHAT WILL BE INVOLVED IN HER SURGERY SO DON'T KNOW JUST WHAT HER LIMITATIONS WILL BE. I DO KNOW SHE HAS A HIGH PAIN TOLERANCE IF SHE CAN WORK THRU THE PAIN SHE IS IN.

WE HAD A WONDERFUL SPRING DAY HERE TODAY. IT WAS IN THE LOW 60'S AND TEH SUN WAS SHINNING TILL 3PM. THEN IT LOOKED LIKE IT WAS GOING TO RAIN BUT IT DIDN'T. TOMORROW WILL BE BACK IN THE 50'S BUT WE CAN DEAL WITH THAT.

MOM WENT TO THE GYM TODAY. SHE DID THE TREADMILL BUT SHE OVERDID IT. SHE DID 30 MINS ON ELEVATION 6 AND SPEED OF 4.0. THE SHE UPPED THE ELEVATION TO 8 FOR 10MINS, BAD IDEA. WHEN SHE GOT OFF THE TREADMILL HER CALF MUSCLE WAS VERY TIGHT AND PAINFUL FROM MIDCALF TO ANKLE. IT MADE WALKING HARD. MOM ENDED UP LIMPING TILL SHE GOT HOME AND RUBBED THE BACK OF HER LEG. MOM WILL NOT DO THAT AGAIN. SHE ALSO GOT IN HER 45 MODIFIED PUSHUPS AND
4 SETS OF 70 MODIFIED SITUPS ON THE BALL. TOMORROW WILL BE WORKING OUT ON THE MACHINES MOSTLY AND LIGHT WALKING ON THE TREADMILL.

I HOPE EVERYONE HAS A WONDERFUL DAY TOMORROW AND NO MORE SNOW OR SLEET.

SENDING YOU ALL THE SWEETEST BEAKIE KISSES AND WARM WING HUGS.

PRAYERS FOR EVERYONE TO STAY HAPPY AND HEALTHY.

Hey little buddy! So you ate an Nana's house today? Yay! Way to go!

  Heya, Dixie!
We are so happy to see Mario's picture on the home page today!! It was such a beautiful service!!!

Your Mom is definitely taking care of her family--human and flock, that is for sure. Good deal that Skin Sis will be at your house during her recovery. And we sure are glad that Nana is doing so well. I guess I would be nervous about taking a shower by myself after her surgery, so it is great that your Mom is there to help her with that. Mom has one of those handheld shower things, and she sits down in the tub and shower's that way. I get to go on her shoulder when I want to, and I make sounds like the water running off her. Hehe.

I am doing good by the way. I love being with Mom, and she says that she is gonna probably take the car in for its oil change this week and work from home on Thursday, she thinks. She has no meetings, and is bored to tears as she is not working on anything right now. She hopes that something will come along, but if not, she will be okay. She thinks, anyway. Insurance is gonna be pricey to pay on her own. She might have to forego it. But who knows what will happen. She is just going to give it up to the universe. She is sad, though, that she was not able to do the project to the end. Ah well.

Sending you wing hugs and beaky kisses and some really good smashed taters from Lizzie--and stuffing! My favorite foods!!! And sending prayers and good thoughts to your entire skin family and your feathered one, too!

  Hi Dixie
The celebration of life memorial for Mario was really a wonderful event, wasn't it. So glad that your mom and skin sis found some consolation from it. It is those special moments that help us heal.

Now did you eat at Nana's? I worry so much about your health, my dear friend. Please tell me that you are eating. And no fibbing, you hear? Really eat that warm bean mix. It is so good for you, and it will build you back up in no time at all.

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

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

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

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

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

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

  Hi Dixie!
How are you and your family doing? The memorial yesterday for Mario was so lovely! We were unable to attend due to no internet yesterday but this morning we were able to leave our respects and read all the amazing blogs from the service! And of course, he is our dear Angel BOTD today! How wonderful! He will remain so loved in all our hearts! And I wanted to say congrats to you for winning 3rd Place in the Most Irish contest at the milonga. There were so many birdies at the party and I never got even close to giving you a hug and kiss there. So here is one now! Smooch and a big hugs, Squeaky wraps her wings around Dixie! We all loved your picture! You were really in camouflage! Very Irish of you! Our internet was so slow during the milonga, mom was reading a book between page loadings! So we didn't stay very long since it was such a pain in the feathered butt! I don't think it was BC but becos of all the people vacationing here at the beach....
I hope you and your family and flock enjoy a nice week and get to relax. And I wish you all a very nice Easter! I know Scion is with Mario now and that makes me feel better too. I bet they will be the best buddies. Did Mario like to eat? If he did, well, I know he and Scion will get along greyt!
Love you so much and your flock and momma and family!
Love, Squeaky

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

V4U today. What a wonderful surprise to see that Mario won Angel Bird Of The Day today. :) We hope that each day for your family and flock will be better and happier than the day before. That is funny how you helped yourself while Nana and brother were eating their breakfast. Our flock does that too. LOL :) Nothing new here. Just very busy as always. Our cold snap with the freeze warnings has ended for now, although we can always get a freeze again before April is over. Wishing you a nice day. From, Marigold

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

  Hi Dixie
Now are you eating? Don;t make me come up there and regurgitate something for you just like mom used to do when you were a nestling! Elvis was up in the new room yesterday checking stuff out. He said it is very warm and sunny which is nice since we had another inch of snow last night! He said there were lotsa toys and more parts that mom is working on. He said he didn't chew on any of the plants, just sat back and enjoyed the sunshine. Mom couldn't get the music thingy playing so tonight after work she will switch out the boom boxes. She has a disc called Rain Forest and I think we will all enjoy that...just when it gets nice and tranquil on the disc, we can let out a good, loud SQUAWK! just for atmosphere. Josh continues to be eggstemely violent towards mom and that makes her very sad because he used to be her birsonal trainer coming out of his condo in the morning and supervising her workout. Well, time to get mom moving and grooving to do our room service. Now, you're gonna eat well today my frother! Moggie is going by Mario's page today to let him know his is not gone and forgotten.

  Hey Dixie,
My vet visit went good, she liked my camo outfit. :)

She said I looked very cute and stylish. :)

Unfortunately I still hafta wear my collar tho.

I hafta go and see her again next Saturday as I hope that will be the last.

Mom hasta give me the rest of the antibiotics until its all gone.

By then I should be good.

Mom has let me preen for a few hours today so that was nice and I'm trying to be good and not pick at my boo.

Laka went to the vet too but her appointment was in the morning.

And she didnt like the part when they took me in the back to take my blood. :(

Mom didn't hear me scream so I guess that was kinda good.

This test will show if my kidneys or liver is infected. Also it'll check for diabetes too.

The vet told mom he could get the results by Wednesday or Thursday at the latest.

My bill broke moms bank account, she didnt have enough on her credit card so she had to do a half from the savings to her checking and also used what was left on another credit card.

I sure hope we get some good results and that what I have is easily treatable.

I'll let you know when I get my test results back.

Love, hugs and a vote.

  Pookie walks softly to check on lil Dixie,
He is sleeping so Pookie leaves a plate of moms pineapple cake at his cage for his breakfast in case he doesn't want to eat his regular breakfast.

Cake is always good for breakfast. Pookie smiles as he hears Dixie snoring away as he is sleeping good. He needs his rest as he and his flock had a long day.

The memorial celebration was lovely as eggspected.

Pookie leaves the special Pikake lei by his cage door do he'll smell it when he gets up.

Pookie blows a kiss towards Dixie's door and says sleep well my friend.

Sweet dreams and remember we all love you.

Then Pookie flies back home as mom needs to give him his medicine.

Love,

I can't believe how bad the BC has been for the last two weeks for me. It just freezes and I can't save my blogs ... all have to be rewritten.
Thanks for liking my pic and I love yours too. It was a surprise to get a ribbon.
I'm happy to hear that you did eat a little. But, you need much more. I don't want you sick. Tomorrow at Nana's please eat well.
That was a lovely memorial service. I hope that helped you with a little closure. I know how much you miss him.
Now please take care of yourself.
Today we had more snow with freezing rain. Maybe we'll see a couple minutes of sun on Monday. I'm waiting for beach weather.
Now it's late and time for bed. Let me help you with the braces. Are you ready?

Oh Dixie boy, the pipes are calling

  Sugar and Dixie love the rolls and the cocoa! They are both laughing every time Hookie starts to sneeze! A dragon with a cold is a bad thing!

Sugar cleans up after their snack and props Dixie's legs up onto the Hello Kitty pillow. She massages his legs and tells him that the Memorial for Mario was just beautiful. She hopes it helps him to know how many friends love him and support him.

Sugar tells Dixie that her dad is home for a few days. Merlin is very happy to see him and so was Sugar. She helped mom get the kitchen clean today and helped with laundry too. Since dad is home, he will be doing all his laundry so she and mom had to make sure theirs was all done!

Soon the friends are yawning and stretching their wings. It is time to get some sleep.
Sugar wraps a wing around Dixie and gives him a kiss goodnight. They say their prayers and include a special one just for Nana.
Sugar has her own prayers just for Dixie. She loves him so very much and prays that he starts eating well very soon. She thanks the Lord everyday for bringing him into her life!

Sleep tight and sweet dreams Bird of My Heart! ♥
I love you to the Moon and back!

  Sugar waddles quietly through the house~
and rushes down the hallway. She has been waiting all day to get over here and can't wait another minute! She sees Dixie waiting by the bird room door for her! She waddles into the bird room and throws her wings around Dixie. She holds him tightly and tells him how very happy she is to be here!

"How are you tonight? I hope you had a wonderful afternoon! Did you eat more?? I hope you did. I don't like that you are not eating enough! I'm glad you will be going to Nana's today and having a nice meal! I know it's very hard on you right now but you have to eat!"

The friends waddle over to the platform and snuggle close together. Sugar hands Dixie the Hello Kitty lunch box. He opens it up and find cinnamon rolls inside! There are some wet wipes too for when they are done! He places the cinnamon rolls on napkins for them while Sugar pours them each a mug of hot cocoa with cream. They nibble on the rolls and sip the cocoa while Sugar starts to read the story she has for them tonight!

"This story is called "Please Don't Sneeze". In the story there is a wonderful cafe in the forest. All the fairies, trolls, witches, animals and even humans love this cafe. There is always fabulous cakes and tart for everyone to enjoy. One day a troll comes running into the cafe and tells everyone he has seen a giant egg! They all think he is being silly until he shows them the egg! It is huge! All of the sudden the egg cracks and out step a creature. No one seem to know what this creature is until the witch steps up and tell them all it is a baby dragon! They all help with raising the dragon. He is a joyful little guy and loves to eat tarts! They name him Hookie!
Hookie grows up and soon is too big for his little house. He likes to roam around so he stays outside now. One day it starts to rain and Hookie gets all wet! Soon he is not feeling well and has the sniffles! They put him to bed in his new house and tell him to rest! Hookie starts to sneeze and when he does, fire comes out of his mouth! The fire department comes over and puts out the fire. They are going to have to find a way to keep Hookie from sneezing!
They take him to the doctor who gives him some medicine. Hookie sneezes and puts a hole in the doctors pants! They get Hookie back to bed and in a few days he is feeling great! They all agree that they need to make sure that Hookie never gets a cold again."

MY DEAR SWEET FIBLINGS. WHAT A BEAUTIFUL MEMORIAL SERVICE IT WAS. WE CHECKED IN EARLY AND MAYBE AGAIN LATER BUT THEM WE DIDN'T GET BACK. MOM WILL GO AND READ THE REST. A LOT OF BIRDIES SHOWED UP TO HELP CELEBRATE THE LIFE OF MARIO. I KNOW THAT HE WAS WATCHING US AND HAPPY. HE KNOWS THAT YOU ARE NOT EATING AND HE WANTS YOU TO EAT DIXIE. HE IS WORRIED ABOUT YOU. HE SAYS HE IS ALRIGHT AND HAS MANY FRIENDS UP THERE.

I KNOW SINCE YOU WERE RIGHT THERE WHEN MARIO PASSED THAT IT WILL TAKE YOU A BIT LONGER IN GRIEVING. ITS GOOD THAT AUNT ROSE TAKES YOU WITH HER TO NANA'S.

HEY I THOUGHT THAT PEEPERS LIVED AT YOUR HOUSE?? WHAT WAS HE DOING AT SKIN SIS HOUSE? JUST HAPPY THAT HE IS BACK HOME AND THAT CELINE WILL BE VISITING ALSO.

I HOPE ALL GOES WELL FOR SKIN SIS SURGERY NEXT WEEK. IS ALL HER PRE-OP TESTING DONE? THEN SHE WILL COME BACK AND STAY WITH YOU AND AUNT ROSE TILL SHE CAN GET AROUND ON HER OWN. MAYBE SHE WILL DO JUST AS WELL AS NANA IS DOING.

WE HAD A CRUMMY DAY HERE TODAY. WE WOKE UP TO CLOUDY OVERCAST AND RAINY DAY HERE. HIGHS WERE UPPER 30'S. THE SUN PEEKED OUT FOR JUST A VERY SHORT TIME ABOUT 4PM. REST OF WEEK IS SUPPOSED TO BE IN THE 40'S AND 50'S WITH ONE DAY POSSIBLY 60. THEN BACK INTO THE 30'S FOR NEXT WEEKEND.

MOM WENT TO OUR LOCAL BIRD FAIR. SHE GOT SWEETPEPPER SOME AVICAKES BUT THEY DIDN'T HAVE MY PELLETS. MOM SAID THAT THERE WERE VERY FEW VENDORS THERE.

THERE IS A REALLY BIG BIRD FAIR THAT IS ONLY A ONCE A YEAR DEAL. ITS ON MAY 30TH AND MOM MAY GO TO IT. THEY LOTS AND LOTS OF STUFF THERE. MOM IS GOING TO SEE IF HER SISTER WILL GO WITH HER. ITS A LONG DRIVE AS ITS IN A NEW AREA.

I HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A WONDERFUL MONDAY.

  Heya, Dixie!
I am okay. My feathers all fell out though when I hit whatever it was that I hit. Mom says that I am just trying to be like her, but she has a couple of strands of hair in her thin spots. She hates having thin hair. Never used to but must be that old lady thing.

The Memorial was so awesome! We got there a little late--confusion on Mom's part thinking in Central time and not Eastern. But it was so lovely!! We know you miss Mario, but LIzzie says that he wants you to eat something--he misses you so much too, but he doesn't want you to get sick. Here is some chicken soup and these yummy breadsticks Lizzie made just for you! And some very special pound cake, too--full of all kinds of goodies to make you want to eat more!!

Mom is just disappointed that things did not work out for her. She just is not sure what she will do. If nothing comes along in the next two weeks, she will still be okay. She is thinking of just taking the early retirement--and will be available to help Grandpa out. See Kim more. She is just feeling a bit sad. She will get over it. Guess maybe it gets harder as you get older? No clue.

Not much happening here. It was a lovely day with Mom. Colder, with winds that gusted to 40 mph. Sounded like winter when you were near the window in Mom's bedroom. Nice and toasty inside though.

Wing hugs, beaky kisses and all of our prayers and good thoughts to you and your entire flockily! We love ya so much, and only want the best of everything for all of you and yours!!

  Hi Dixie
Thank you for your loving thoughts and prayers for us. We had a good Sunday with mom. I came out and danced to the vacuum. Those macaw frothers just scream like girls! Josh is still very angry and would not come out todsy, lunging and striking out at mom. Mom says between Josh trying to kill her and Petey leaving his toy on the stairs it won;t be ling for her now. I told Petey off yesterdsy screamed at him and chased him away from Aunt Jeanne. Mom bought another toy orgy at PetSmart and got me 3 of the same toy because I destroy one every week! She says I do an eggcellent job and I sit on my door dancing with a piece of wood in my beak. Last night mom made her studio a fid enrichment center with all of our perches and playstands so we can go up there and help her make toys and listen to music. There are plants that are non toxic and lotsa art and of course a greyt view of the garden. So between our room and mom's studio it will be fine. Dad is calming down and right now I think he is nervous about mom's ct scan on Tuesday. We are sorry we missed Mario's memorial today--please know he lives on in our hearts. Love and winghugs, cookie

  Hi Dixie
What a wonderful memorial that was for Mario....a true celebration of life. I am sure he was watching from the Rainbow Bridge. I could feel him there with us. And my dear friend, you know he would want you to eat and not grieve for him. If you won't eat for him, then eat for me, OK? Loving you!

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

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

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