  Hi Maxie
Happy Sunday to all my BC friends. Zeena here with a look at a species of bird, well reputed as THE best talker and mimicker. Once abundantly available at low prices, today an often difficult to find and much costly addition to ones Flockily. Momma Deb says as a child she recalls seeing a number of these interesting, entertaining birds kept in Pet Stores, and businesses. She has been searching for one for over ten years and only encounter one at a very costly price.
The Mynah, the loved and disliked Clown of the avian world.
The Common Myna (Acridotheres tristis), sometimes spelled Mynah, also sometimes known as "Indian Myna", is a member of the family Sturnidae (starlings and mynas) native to Asia. An omnivorous open woodland bird with a strong territorial instinct, the Myna has adapted extremely well to urban environments.The Common Myna is an important motif in Indian culture and appears both in Sanskrit and Prakrit literature. "Myna" is derived from the Hindi language maina which itself is derived from Sanskrit madana.

The range of the Common Myna is increasing at such a rapid rate that in 2000 the IUCN Species Survival Commission declared it one of the world's most invasive species and one of only three birds in the top 100 species that pose an impact to biodiversity, agriculture and human interests. In particular, the species poses a serious threat to the ecosystems of Australia where it was named "The Most Important Pest/Problem".

Mynahs are a lively, confident, aggressive, and noisy bird. It is friendly and perky, and the large flocks that gather at roosting time are usually raucous and grouchy. As pets they have many redeeming qualities including an inmate ability to mimic sounds, whistles and human speech. Once quite common in the pet trade, they now are difficult to locate. The Greater and Lesser Hill Mynahs are most thought of when imaging a Mynah Bird. Their clownish, outgoing personalities winning many a fan in years past.

Mynah's eat a mixture of specially formulated insect mash and fresh foods. Like the Lories, they have watery, odorous droppings, making them difficult to maintain in a home environment. those who endure the mess speak lovingly of their companions who seem to adore children, and adults alike. Daily cage washing, bathing and out of cage time are mandatory for good health. Momma Deb recalls that in her childhood most Mynah's were caged in small cramped cages,eating a diet of sunflower seeds and fruit. Thus living a miserable, short life. As advances came, it was found that Mynah's must have a balanced, more natural diet, and lots of room to move around in their cages. Bonded pairs breed readily in captivity. Babies that are hand-reared average $1200 to 1500 each when available. Bali Mynah's are rare and available to collectors only.

I wish to thank all my friends here on C for their daily support, and words of encouragement.

  Hi Maxie
Good afternoon my dear BC friends, Zeena here with today's BOTM blog. We will once more make a stop in South American to visit one of natures very interesting and unique inhabitants. Our host is one of aviculture's beautiful, and unusual songbirds. The Green Oropendola. The Green Oropendola is of exclusively Amazonian distribution.The Green Oropendola (Psarocolius viridis) is generally common in its wooded habitats that are found in the Amazon and Guianas of South America; specifically Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Peru, Suriname, and Venezuela. Largely pale green above, the posterior underparts and rump are chestnut, and the tail is largely yellow except for the central rectrices. The bill is green basally, becoming red towards the tip, and the skin around the eyes and lores is pink. Males and females are similar in plumage, but the latter sex is substantially smaller. Like most oropendolas, this species breeds in colonies, usually of five to ten pairs, and constructing a hanging ‘basket’ nest of woven plant fibers. The species’ displays are similar to those of the Crested Oropendola (Psarocolius decumanus).
Related common species include such song-birds as the Meadow Lark, Bobo-Link and Bullock's Oriole to name but a few.
The Green Oropendola eats a diet of fresh fruits, insects, mynah bird food and nectar in captivity. An active, high energy species these birds require a large, long flight to maintain them in good condition. Somewhat difficult to breed, these beautiful birds require an aviary suitable to house a number of mature pairs to have any success in nesting and rearing offspring. Hand reared babies of the Green Oropendola are occasionally available but do not tend to retain tameness once weaned. In the wild they typically nest in colonies similarly to Quaker Parrots, building their hanging basket-like nests in a common tree. Captive breeding is seeing an increase in successful clutches being raised to fledging and adulthood.
These are definitely not a species for the beginner avicultarist, and their pricy purchase costs in excess of $850.00US each leaves them to the more well off and experienced collectors. Their song is soft and melodious, a pleasure to listen to. Their call is often described as flute-like and low.
Tomorrow we will visit with a wonderful, entertaining species of bird, that once filled many living rooms, but today is rare both in captivity and their wild habitat.
I wish to thank all my many friends for their loving support on my quest to be August's BOTM. I couldn't make it without all of you.
love and scritches

  Hi Maxie
Hello everybird, Zeena here with today's BOTM blog. First I wish all my US friends a happy and safe 4th of July Holiday. It is also the day that my little fister Little Angel will marry her beloved Dixie. Their wedding will take place on the BC Castle page number 239094. All are invited to join these two "love-birds" this evening at 6PM Eastern Time as they share their vows of love. The reception will follow on the same page. Today we will take a peek into a few nesting boxes around the world and see what we find. Come on, let's be very quiet, as we explore the many new Blue and Gold Macaw mutations .Color Mutations are considered "pure" birds. They occur in nature, although rarely and if they do, they often don't survive long, if the "new color" is too vibrant and they are easily visible by predators.

Color mutations in captivity are perpetuated by breeding like colored birds to like colored birds (of two birds that carry the color gene). The resultant offspring will often be the color that is desired. Hybrids are the crossing of two species, whereas mutations occur spontaneously.

Most of us know the Blue and Yellow Macaw. Many of us own one or more, however there are some really eggciting new mutations I'd like us to take a look at. We are most familiar with the typical blue and Gold. However there is a larger variant from Bolivia called the Bolivian Blue and Gold Macaw. The Bolivian variety is distinguished by its larger size and its coloring. On all these Macaws the colors are vibrant, but the Bolivian has more of a true blue rather than the teal blue seen in the average Blue and Gold. They all share the same wonderful personality and characteristics.

The Bolivian Blue and Gold Macaw is a variant originating only in Bolivia. It looks just like the typical Blue and Gold, however, it is much larger. A mutation of the Blue and Gold Macaw has also been reported where the yellow coloring is absent creating a blue and white bird. Although seldom seen or available there are many new mutations being bred. Many sell for over $50,0US each.
Momma Deb told me she would love to have one of each, they are so beautiful, I am certain you will have to agree.

  Hi Maxie
Hello everybirdie. Zeena here with today's Rainforest findings. I wish to thank everyone for their awesome support and hope you will enjoy today's feature species.
The Harpy Eagle is a majestic shadow that silently soars above the Rainforest canopy. Once common, and plentiful, today they rest on the brink of extinction. Previously a common sight in Brazil, the Harpy Eagle has become as rare as seeing a unicorn would be. Hunted to near extinction for their feathers, sport and out of fear and concern for their livestock, these awesome giants of the Raptor world are rapidly disappearing. These birds terrify hapless animals that forage in the shifting sunlight of the high canopy. Harpy eagle is the largest and the most powerful raptor throughout America. They belong to the family of accipitridae. American harpy eagle typically inhabits lowland rainforests but are disappearing from much of its range due to habitat loss and it almost extirpated in Central America.
The Harpy Eagle weighs in at 20 to 27 pounds for a hen and 12 to 17 pounds for a male, standing between 40 and 60 inches in length, sporting 5 to 7 inch talons it is a formidable predator dining on a diet consisting largely of sloth and moneys, with other animals making up the balance. In flight the Harpy flies on strong 5 to 7 foot wide spans, silent and watchful for a meal below in the dense Rain Forest canopy.
With wide spread clear-cutting and man's guns, the Harpy Eagle is soon going to be gone from the wild habitat it once claimed. Nesting in tree top nests, the single chick remains with the parents for up to two years. Pairs mate for life thus making it harder to rebuild endangered populations. Many Harpy Eagles have be poached for the private collector market relentlessly, with current breeding programs being established to help stave off their total elimination. Used by Bird of Prey enthusiasts and trained to hunt on command. Many die from lack of proper diet, and education of would be owners. New Government regulations being in place it is hoped to make owning Harpy Eagles a more difficult objective. Would be owners now have to finish a Government regulated Raptors training program which entails sixteen to eighteen months apprenticeship training in care, training and husbandry.
Tomorrow we will take a closer look at a new and exciting find that is shaking the bird community. Discovered in a nestbox, this unusual baby has enthusiasts in awe.
A quick reminder that on Friday July 4th my fister LITTLE ANGEL THRIFT will wed the handsome Mr Dixie Adler at the BC Castle page number 239094

  Hi Maxie
Mayo is 3 votes short of 10k, where are you? Do you want me to welcome him to the HOF????
I have been picking at that bandage since yesterday when the vet put it on. It's still there, though, so mom hasn't put any more ointment on it. She is just going to leave it for another day, if I let it stay there. I have been taking meds but biting mom every time. I have to let her know I do not approve! I am back to my own self, though, noisy and sweet most of the time.
Mom found out she can read actual books with a higher magnification of glasses. She is so excited about that, because she hasn't read a real book since April. She has been reading novels and such on her Nook, but hasn't held a book for so long!
Has anyone gotten a new Foster & Smith catalog? Mom is looking but we don't have a current one and she wants to buy some food for us. If she shops online, will we still get free shipping is her big question. I guess she'll go to the site and see what happens. We haven't found that Madagascar Mix either, does anyone know who makes it?
I hope you are having a great summer day. We are getting clouds and sun mixed, and don't know if it will rain or not. Whatever comes, we'll make the best of it. Get lots of love today! Hugs, Falco

  Hello Maxie
Hello everybirdie, Zeena here with today's BOTM post. As we land in Brazil, we are cautioned to be very quiet so we don't disturb the Macaws. SHhhhhh!

The Spix's Macaw (Cyanopsitta spixii), also known as the Little Blue Macaw, is a macaw native to Brazil.First discovered by German naturalist Georg Marcgrave, when he was working in the State of Pernambuco, Brazil in 1638 and it is named for German naturalist Johann Baptist von Spix, who collected a specimen in 1819 on the bank of the Rio São Francisco in northeast Bahia in Brazil.
The bird is a medium size parrot weighing about 300 grams (0.66 lb), smaller than most of the large macaws. Its plumage is various shades of blue, with a grey-blue head, light blue underparts, and vivid blue upperparts. Males and females are identical in appearance, the females being a little smaller on average. The Spix Macaw is reported to be extinct in the wild, with the disappearance of one last single male in 2000. All remaining Spix Macaws are now kept in several private breeding programs without the world. Due to their extremely small numbers none are available for public viewing. The largest colony of approximately 40 birds is currently owned by an Arab sheik who has been working on breeding these beautiful birds with the final hope that they will be able to be released into their former remaining habitat.
The Spix Macaws were destroyed in the wild by excessive deforestation and hunting. The colonies were ruthlessly killed, poached for the pet trade and shot for pure sport until they had been eliminated in their territory. The introduction of predators into their habitat, including rats, monkeys and feral cats also aided the quick decline in wild Spix populations. In recent years there have been isolated reports of Spix Macaws in land in protected, isolated locations but this has not been publicly verified, although it possibly might be true, to protect what remaining wild pairs there are.
A sad note, this past Wednesday PRESLEY, the second to last known wild-born member of the species flew to the Rainbow Bridge after a brief illness. Presley had been kept as a pet in the USA for years, but was returned to Brazil in 2008. He left no progeny. He was 40 years old at his death.
Presley's death is a blow to conservation efforts in both a symbolic and literal sense. Critically endangered, these native Brazilian birds (Cyanopsitta spixii) are believed to be extinct in the wild. Decades of deforestation and rampant wildlife trafficking have besieged the medium-size macaws, who also ended up having to compete for nest space with introduced Africanized honeybees.
Now with fewer then 100 living specimens, most closely related, the Spix Macaws future hangs in the balance. This spring heralded in the hatching of 5 babies, 3 of which were due to artificial insemination. Perhaps someday our grandchildren will be able to see the wild Spixs fly free once more.

  Hi Maxie
Hello Everybirdie
Today we kick off my month of July BOTM run with a special celebration. It's Canada Day here with all the food,fun, family and firework displays. I hate fireworks, too noisy, but being a Macaw I'm always up for some food, and fun. I want to begin this month by telling you a little bit about myself. Most of you already know my handsome frother SKY, my mischievous fister Little Angel and my adventurous frother Casey, but some may not know me birdsonally.
I joined the Sky Flock in 2013. It was Easter weekend when Momma Deb received the call from my former owner to "come today and get her PLEASE!!!!!" I am sure glad that Momma Deb did, because it was the best thing that happened to me in a long while. I had lived with my first owners for 13-14 years but it became necessary to rehome me and I was sold to a lady who had a whole house full of very large, very aggressive Pitbulls and Rottweilers. I never left my cage and spent a whole year and some living in fear of being attacked by the dogs. I thought things were going to get better when once more I was resold. The lady who bought me had two large dogs who constantly barked and growled at me. I was so stressed I began to pluck some of my feathers out and I never spoke, and hadn't in 2 1/2 years.
It was my best day when Momma Deb arrived to take me away from there. I'd only been there a short while but I was relieved to be going somewhere I hoped would be better. I am very happy here at the Sky Flock, I get out of my cage all the time and love to yell at the other birds to be quiet. Momma Deb discovered I have a rather extensive vocabulary and know how to count to sixteen, and know a number of songs as well.
Enough about me. Let's get our suitcases, cameras and sunscreen ready as we begin our trip to every corner of the world. We will visit some very rare and endangered species, learn about some interesting and unusual birds, and my favorite take a look at some of the awesome mutations showing up around the planet of some of our most common feathered friends.
I will see every one tomorrow.

  Hi ya Maxie~
I hope you are enjoying the day!
We had a crazy day. The fire alarm people did not show up until nearly noon It's the annual check thingy. They started on the other side of the complex! We had already done all our chores and were just waiting for them to show up. Mom had just gotten on Facebook and went to click on a Linkin Park Video when the fire alarms went off! Mom thought it was feedback from the video and turned the sound down! When the screeching kept going she final realized it was the alarms!hahahahaha
Mandy, Merlin and I were taken into mom's bathroom to wait for the inspection to be done. It was only for 10 minutes but Mandy was freaking out! She was panting hard and kept trying to squeeze behind mom! Merlin just sat in the sink like he always does. I was perfectly okay and just spent time chatting with mom.
Mom had to go to the market after that. She wasn't gone for a long time at least. She and Ian went to the mall to look for shoes for Ian first. He wears a 15 so not all the stores have shoes that big. He found some at Famous Footwear so he's happy! They stopped at Dairy Queen after that. They were taking donations for the children's miracle network at Diary Queen so mom bought a big balloon and put my name on it! It's now hanging at the Dairy Queen in the Mall! I'm gonna be famous!hahahahahaha It's the biggest balloon there!
I hope you all enjoy the rest of your day!
Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar

  Hi Maxie,
Hi, long time no blog, but now i'm back...for a while at least! What's going on on BC & what's new?
Mum just posted some pics of some of her stuff. It's just a very small selection of what she's been making. Not so many birds anymore, but she really loves to make Barbie clothes & has a whole big bag full of it. She's been to quite a few markets & her stuff is ever so popular. Tomorrow she's going to one again. It's called "our love market" & all the things on sale have to be made with love, so mum thought that's perfect for her.
Hope you're well & your family is too.
Big hug & birdie kisses,v4u
Jivu ♥

Come visit me, Hi everybirdie, i'm back!!!!.

  Hi Maxie
V4U today. We've had stormy weather along with tornado watches on and off since the weekend. It's still raining heavily right now, almost 5 days in a row of rain and storms. The little wrens didn't make it. A predator bird got to the nest. The nest was so well hidden inside of the rose tree, so the bird must have been a strong and bold one. Same thing happened to our neighbors mockingbird nest just a few weeks prior. Thankfully the robins made it and flew off on their own. Wishing you a nice day. From, Mayo

  Hi Maxie!
I think mom has finally gotten used to me being a female, what a good joke on her.
Thank you again for all you do for BC
Mom had her hip replced about 3 1/2 weeks ago, so has not been much on her puter. She has to stand to use it and she only stands for a bit of time.
Sure hope you and your mom are doing well. Is there still a move in your future?

  Please vote me for BOTM!
Hello, I am Pepper, African Grey from the Quebec Flock. I, like most Greys, am quite intelligent and I often put together words to make sentences that surprise Mom to no end. Many of you met me when I got bitten some time ago – when I broke open that lock. Well, that one went in the garbage, and so did another one that I managed to beak open. Mom buys a different brand now.
I am running for BOTM this month, something my frother TiPaul encouraged me to do. While he is flying around voting for his friends to get in the 10K club, he said he will fly farther out of his range to help me get more votes. Thanks fro!
I had a difficult time coming up with a subject that might interest you all. Every birdy has been writing such fascinating things. Then it occurred to me – there are so few flocks from Canada, and just our flock is from Quebec. I am going to take you on a tour of our home city, Montreal… Please come to my page to take a look at the pictures at the bottom for pictures I have posted, and will post every day. Thank you in advance for your support!

  Hello Maxie~
I hope you are having a great day! It's 60 and sunny here. Another trick the tourist kind of day!hahaha
The gardeners are here so I've squawked a greeting to them and yelled at the silly humans in the pool! A good days work so far!
Mom had to go to the market but Jennifer is off today so she was here to keep me company! I don't need anything since I have my apples and a nice big bag of organic grapes so I'm set! Mom looked a the cherries but they are 6$ a pound and not even organic! I like the grapes better anyway. She had to get food for Merlin and even though he's a pest, I wouldn't want him to starve! He would drive us all crazy with his howling if there wasn't any food for him! He howls anyway but it's worse when he wants food!
Mom fell over Mandy when she got up this morning. She is just fine but I thought we were all going to play some kind of game since she was on the floor! I climbed down to peek out under the cage cover and asked her if she was okay. Merlin was sitting at the end of the bed howling for breakfast even though it was very early and Mandy was looking a bit worried! I started laughing and so did mom, so Mandy calmed down. Merlin just kept howling! He's only a cat so we have to forgive him for being unconcerned! It was nice to start the day off with a laugh!
I hope you enjoy your day and get to do some laughing too!
Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar

  Hi Maxie
V4U today. Well, the 3 wren eggs haven't hatched yet, should be any day now. The mommy wren is a busy bee, she sits on the eggs all day long, but we do see her fly in and out from time to time. More nests have popped up around our yard, it's neat to see the birds building the nests, each one is a little different. This morning a robin had a whole beak full of straw, and it was really cute to see. Have a good weekend. From, Mayo

  Hello Maxie
Hi sweetie, so good to hear from you! Glad to hear your doing well. Thats a bummer though that you have not been able to sell your house? Are you able to rent it out instead?? I have heard of birds parronts doing that if they were having a hard time selling. I know its risky too though taking on that rental part never know sometimes. If you have a good tenant then its great! If we lived there, we would take care of it for your mommy no prb!! Anyway what have you been up too? Weren't you BOTD the other day? COngrats if you were!! YAY Yeah I see the club is getting bigger and bigger, I am soooo long away from being in that royalty thats for sure. Mom is doing good, just working and finishing up her school. She cant wait, few more months and she should be done. Well I better fly for now, just wanted to drop a line and say hello. Oh I forgot Sassy and I are having a lake party we are rentign pontoons and boats for skiing and a BBQ no parronts needed I will stop by and pick you up sound good? It will be fun, we just thought it would be neat to have our close friend hang out with us! Feel free to bring friends too I will pick them up too. See ya later sweetie. Love ya, birdy hugs. Love Chico

Come visit me, Chico says I love you Sassy.

  Hi Sugar
Mom has found that blogging from PC isn't working worth a hoot but she can get throug on her phone. However that takes a lot of TIME. I have a vet recheck Saturday to check on my beak. I am actually doing really well and I am back to foraging and eating as normal. Mom watches me like a hawk now ..... Disturbing that LOL

Have a wonderful day. V4U. Hugs.
Love Rudy

  Hi from Woof and Meow
Sorry to hear you haven't sold the house yet, Maxie, but we're sure the new price will do the trick. Now that Memorial Day's over, got any plans for the 4th of July besides staying away from the fireworks? Guess what, toward the end of June, Woof will be 16 years ago. Meow turns 16 in August. Mom's planning the menu already!

Come visit me, Woof and Meow.

  Hi Maxie
We always like seeing friends in the spotlight!
Congratulations to Dixie for making it into the Hall of Fame! We welcome him with big hugs and open wings.
Mom thought we'd all have to swim over to your page today, it rained so hard yesterday and most of the night! She took her sister and brother in law out for sis's birthday dinner, and they dodged raindrops and jumped puddles to get in and out of the restaurant. The meal and the company was worth the trouble, it was a fun time. Mom thinks she's getting old now, because her sister is the baby of the family, and she just applied for social security! We keep telling her she's as old as she feels, though.
This morning mom trained a receptionist at the center. He is a personable young man and quick to pick things up, so mom says on Friday he can man the desk, and she'll work another assignment, but be there if he has any questions. She thinks it will work out for him, and later if he wants, he can get training in animal care. The center does not train people in busy season, it's just too much.
It's laundry day, so we're keeping this short and sweet. I hope you are having a good day and getting lots of attention. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Kaji, TiPaul, and Sky for 10k!, Peppino, Divo, welcoming his old buddy Tooth home & Falco, fly free, Tooth.

  Hi Maxie
It's Popeye.
Long time no squawk. I think one of your famous margaritas would hit the spot. It'll go great with the homemade chips and salsa I brought.
Yesterday was a nice, peaceful day. Mom and dad met their friend, Bob at the theater and all three got in for free, with popcorn and sodas. They saw Draft Day and said it was a very good movie. Then they all went back to the SeaFare Inn for another seafood dinner. Seafood is Bob's favorite food so he's really bummed that their closing, too. The restaurant has a list of names and phone numbers of people who want to have things that are in the restaurant. Mom asked for all the seashells and all dad wants is one menu.
Today dad is going to take one of the weeds from the front yard to a special nursery to ask their lawn expert what he recommends for getting rid of them. not sure what else they'll do today. Maybe nothing else.
Today will be partly cloudy with a high of 82 and a low of 60.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Popeye.

  Hi Maxie
It was greyt spending time with you yesterday... but it just was not long enough. not like it used to be. Things are not like they used to be but I do understand. Your Mom is busy, mine is too, and we just can't seem to get it together. Zak sighs. I finally found a friend in the flock here. When I am out of the cage, I spend time with (of all birds) Pepper. He has always been the mentor with the Greys, except with Gizmo, but he and I will groom each other, and he has never hurt me, and I trust him. When I am out of the bird room, and yes, I will actually walk or flutter out of there on my own, I will allow Mom to handle me just like she does the other birds - she can pick me up, scritch me, but in the bird room I act tough and I come and go to my cage on my own. Go figure. She says I learned that from Pepper. Well, hope to hear from you soon. Miss you my Sweet Maxie. ...Zak
