I hope you're safe and dry today seeing as TX is getting lots of odd weather, INCLUDING SNOW! Here I am in IL and it's raining on the day before Christmas. Actually, I believe those flakes are falling north of you but it may well be raining where you're at. Be safe, Benny.

Hello!!!! Oh my, you've no idea how thrilled I was to hear from you. I trust you're well and still flying about joyfully among the twigs and leaves of your great big wonderful world. The finches here at my house are now out in the Bird Barn and some of them have been allowed freedom in the yard again. They fly all about during the day and then come back in the barn at night to sleep where it's safe and dry. During the day, when I'm out in my parrot pen, some of them come in there with me and eat out of my dish. Silly little birds; they seem so happy, always 'beeping' up a storm of song. I'd sing too if I could fly all over the yard like they do. There are three new baby finches in the bird barn; they make more noise than all us big birds put together, I do declare. What hungry little beggars!!
I've not checked out the Birdie Camp yet. I've barely had time for the BC this summer. Some days the only computer time I get is taking care of things on the Hatchday Calendar Page that I put together to keep track of upcoming Hatchdays. I know you don't know you're exact date, but if there were a special day, say the one your parronts meet you, that could be the date you add to the list and BC friends could come by and wish you an extra dose of happiness on that day.
Wishing you many more happy summer days... K *v*

Tell me it's nice and warm at your place and that all is well in your stretch of the world. It's a whopping 1° here right now and I can tell the wind's blowing by the way the trees are waving at me through the window so I bet it feels even colder than a measly one degree. I trust you're still coming by for your regular supply of seed and safflower treats. The little birds that live outside here have been clustering on the front porch, nibbling away at the feed mom puts out there for them. Some of that includes leftovers from my bowl and in your honor I always leave a little extra for my outdoor cousins... Wishing you wonderful, carefree New Year. Kisses from K *v*

  Hello Benny!
How have you been lately? I am here on request of my brother Poirot. I know that I don't normally want to do too much for him, but thought I'd help out with this one. He is a finalist in the BirdChannel Dance Off. You can find it on the homepage. Would you be willing this week to fly by and leave him a vote everyday? We would really appreciate it. Here is a limerick we wrote for it :~ Our Parrot is dancing with Toad ~ But only when he's in that mode,~ He gives it a kiss, ~ Pecks Spoon with a miss, ~ While head bobbing down the road. Thank you very much. Leaving you a vote. Pringle

  Hello Benny!
Today I got to share some squash from the garden, with Poirot. He shredded it and tossed some pieces my way, which I gobbled down. It was pretty good. We are preparing for the Dance off finals this weekend. Poirot is not into dancing on tape right now and we are running out of time. I hope he does okay tomorrow and obliges Mama. Nibbling off your vote button. Squawk at you later. Pringle

  Hello Benny!
Today is my turn to catch up on my blogs. Right now I am enjoying time in the aviary while the sun is shining and no smoke anywhere to be seen. Yesterday I spent six hours outside. I really like it outside. I grew up in an outdoor aviary. I do like it when Mama comes and pets me or brings me more food. But I am okay being alone in there with my mirror, while seeing all the wild birds. I am quite content to watch them eating at the feeders and flying around. Sometimes I'll even settle down next to my mirror with my head tucked into my wing. If I am lucky, we'll go on a walk later. I sit on the bottom of my carrier chewing on paper towel and looking at the sky. I hope you have a great day. Flying away with your vote button. Pringle. P.S The finals for the Dance competition, will held from Sep 7th to Oct 18th. Looking forward to seeing who made it from the 3rd round.

  Hello Benny!
I am so sorry that I missed your blog to me about two weeks ago. Are you free flying in your yard? Last summer, Mama raised a baby starling that flew free outside and eventually left. We feed the wild birds. They empty the feeders so often, that they are going through about 30 pounds of seed a week. I hope you have a great weekend. Leaving you a vote. Pringle

I didn't realize you had fellow finch mates with you there in your yard! How wonderful that you're not out there flying all alone, the only one of your kind. I wonder if you have a nest somewhere, maybe a collection of eggs with a special Mrs. Those little finches here at my place are sure busy adding to their flock. Mom told me there are babies in nearly every nest hanging in the finch room! (There are 14 nests, with at least three babies in 10 of them!) I think the finch seed's gonna have to be SHOVELED in to keep all those hungry mouths happy! Wonder what tasty morsel you enjoyed today. I had cucumber, grapes, and brown rice this morning, just like the finch families did. Sending a kiss on the wind to you... K °v°

  Hello from you Grey Friend!
What's up, Benny? How many flight miles have you logged in since my last visit? I'll bet it's a bunch. I know how fast you finches can fly... bet you see a lot of acreage in a little bit of time. The finches here at my house have not been let out into the yard yet this year. I think I heard mom say something about it being more economical if she didn't have to feed the finches outside of their cage 'cause she wouldn't be feeding the sparrows the more expensive finch food. I bet the flock is feeling envious of you at this point. I know in ways I am; oh to zoom through the air, perch on a branch, fly to another one, pause there for a bit before cruisin' off to another tree. What fun I imagine. Well, just wanted to say 'hi', let ya know I'm thinkin' of ya. K (°v°)

It's Kelly, flying by to say 'Hi' and to wish to you a wonderful week. I've had an interesting morning listening to this weird DOG toy my mom gave me that 'talks' whenever I touch it. I know what she's hoping will happen; that I'll repeat some of the silly things that toy says. Yea right, like I wanna sit around as say 'Good Dog' all day! There is a good one tho; Bing-Bada-Bing. Now I could have fun with that one. I'll let you know if I decide to add that to my vocab. Sing me a sweet song today, Benny. Keep your eye on the sky and a smile on your beak. K *v*

Benny! How are the friendly skies of Texas today? Mine are blue this morning but it's back to being extremely cool; in fact yesterday there were huge snowflakes blowin' around! Yuck!! After being able to go outside for several days the sight of snow is depressing!! Mom says 'Get used to it... it snows a lot in Colorado.' That's where she wants to move in a couple of years. Geez... taking a tropical bird to the mountains of CO just sounds cruel, if you ask me. Brrrrr! Wishing you sunshine and a nice shady spot for a safe nap... K *V* (That's me wearing sunglasses!)

  Hi Birdy Friends!
Isn't it exciting Lilly Lou got BOTW? Congrats for her! Mom is a bit frustrated at her cable company because she suddenly can't get on line at home. She wasn't able to blog everybody she wanted to. Now she is once again sending out a generic blog to try to catch up. I hope you don't mind. I am getting used to hearing the 2 new cockatiels in the house. They make some funny noises! One woke mom and dad up yesterday morning at 6:30 with the weirdest chirps. He sounded like an alarm clock or something! At least I am nice enough to sing Andy Griffith instead. Well, hope all is well & here is a vote!

Well Fortune just wants to go on another trip.. he is still yelling bye bye and squawking at Mom today.. silly bird loves to travel.

Thank you SO much for comin' by and wishing me a Happy Hatchday. It was indeed a very nice day; full of adventurous outings and permission to do some of the things I'm normally told 'No' about, like play on the kitchen counter for a little while. Mom gave me a whole collection of utensils to play with...wooden spoons, a wire whip stuffed full of peanuts, keys, measuring spoons (which made a lovely racket when they hit the floor!) Your visit added to the happiness of my day. Thanks for flyin' by! I'd also like to say I'm touched to be featured in your Aviary. Your avatar is just darling, almost as cute as YOU in the feather! Fly safe and may your weekend be filled with sunshine and blue skies. Luv from K 'v'

  Hi Beautiful Bird!
Yes, we can be friends! My mommy has a lot of finches and doves that live around us. We have some nests right now, and mommy loves watching their moms care for them, and I love to hear them sing! The weather is finally nicer, and I get to hear them more. I am glad you stopped by to visit! Please do any time! Pecks and a hug!

I'm sure they'll be very excited about the chance to sit in the sun, play in the rain, sing to all the other birdies in the yard... just like you get to do everyday! I got to spend a couple of hours outdoors yesterday when the sun's was at its warmest. Lookin' forward to when when I can stay out ALL day! Fun!! Take care, Little Friend. K 'v'

Hey, did you happen to see that Easter Bunny while you were buzzin' around the neighborhood? I hear he was out and about, dropping precious birdie eggs behind him everywhere he went. I didn't see him but maybe that's because it snowed like crazy here yesterday; big huge flakes—could hardly see across the yard. Funny thing tho, the grass never even looked's too warm for the snow to stick and pile up! That's a good sign Spring is really making an effort to show up. I trust you're warm and happy... just the way I like to picture you. Flap a lap for me! K 'v'
