My new mom and dad heard about me from a friend at Dad’s work. Because of circumstances beyond my first Dad’s control, we were forced to look for a new family for me. My new dad’s friend is a part of my first family, and he also knew that Dad and Mom wanted to adopt a Blue-And-Gold (like ME!) very badly after they lost their B & G girl, Rosalie Hale Bopp, last fall. ~~ It was KISMET ! ! ! What other reason could there possibly be for my having family in South Carolina knowing both that I needed a new home, and that Mom and Dad needed another Blue-And-Gold to love?! ~~ Mom and Dad drove over 2,000 miles roundtrip, just meet me and bring me home. I officially came to my new “flockily” (Mom makes up some very strange words!) on March 1, 2008. And something tells me that no matter where we are, how strange I feel in my new surroundings, or whatever the future holds, it will hold me safely, securely, and happily in the arms and hearts of this family; and forever in the hearts and memories of my first family.

Hi! My name is (Ö> Charles Riley Jake ~ AaaaaAA!

I am a Blue-and-Gold Macaw from Warrensburg, MO.

My REAL name IS Jake! But Mom insists that nearly everybirdy in this flockily have 3 names. (She says that way, we know right off the bat how much trouble we're in by the number of names we hear--another one of Mom's strange habits!)

14 years old   M

Blue-and-Gold Macaw

I'm holding out for this special "Stitch's Spicy Popcorn" that I've been hearing so much about. Then we'll take it from there.

I'm not sure yet. But Mom's arm seems like a nice enough place.

Being stuck in my travel carrier for the 17-hour trip from Michigan to my new home in South Carolina. I kept begging in the cutest way I know how for my new mom to let me out. But she just wouldn't do it ! ! !

Mom doesn't let me scare her when I lunge at her and make like I want to take a chunk out of her. She even lets me "pretend to bite" her, to show me that she knows I'm just scared because I don't know her very well yet. (My first dad told her that I wouldn't REALLY bite her!) So she just tells me "what a good boy" I am for not really biting, and that I'm okay, and everything is going to be fine. And, I think I believe her!

I spend a lot of time hanging by one toe from the top of my cage, while nibbling on a juicy morsel I've foraged from my bowl and carried up there specifically for the occasion..

AaaaaAA!! (Ö> My scream is MUCH worse than my BITE!!.

  Hey Jake
We're all glad you had fun in the booth, and that storm shelter is pretty neat. When I was there, and later, Willie, it was just that, a booth! It had a portable heater and some beakstick behind the counter. Now it's really expanded into a fun place to hang out.
Bree didn't get here yesterday for our birdicures, so mom is hoping she makes it today.
Mom went shopping in the snow today for Easter dinner. She got all the stuff except for salad makings and the greens for wedding soup. She'll get those late in the week. It is snowing today, but not sticking, so we have hopes the daffodils, tulips that haven't been eaten by the deer, hyacinths, and of course forsythia and lilacs will survive. It's going into the low 20s tonight, but there should be a warmup by Thursday. At least that's what the weather guys said. Today we have mom for the rest of the day, but she will be scrubbing our cages down, which we all hate. Just when you get stuff where you want it, along comes somebody to move it and clean it, then you have to start over again. I say phooey to that! Hope you are having a good day with nice weather. Hugs, Falco

flying by with a vote and a blog. Mom is hoping the blog will show up. She wrote it in Word first, just in case. We are having a lot of rain and that is the cause of our slow internet.

We had no internet and so far this evening things are working... Here is a bag of walnuts - hope you enjoy them! Shhh... They are Floop's favorites so they must be yours too.

  .~*º•º*~. CONGRATULATIONS! .~*º•º*~.
Congratulations my Handsome Guardsbird and a belated Happiest of Hatchdays to you!

I feel like I've dropped off the edge of the world, but believe me when I say you're always in my thoughts.

I've brought you a couple of yellow roses, the colour we have in common. Think of me as you shred them. :)

Things have been pretty crazy here from the human point of view, but me, I'm just enjoying life as I always do. I've shown interest in eggs already a couple of times this spring, but I'm more easily deterred and haven't thought of them seriously. Anyway, at my age I don't want to waste 3 weeks sitting on them.

As always I prefer playing with the toys that aren't mine. Mama has just found that Poirot is interested in beads on strings again. It made me interested too, so after taking one of his strands, I was given my very own. It was fun untying a couple of knots and chewing on ribbon.

Suddenly this week the cold weather has gone and it's been in the 70's. Our aviary hasn't been scrubbed for the summer, but we've gone out a few times in our small cages. It's such a wonderful feeling, soaking up the rays of warm sunshine. The bugs haven't quite figured out the weather, so not many are around to buzz us.

My flying has really slowed down lately. One of my wings doesn't like to stretch out all the way. Even with this wingdicap, I can still get around pretty well. I just have to know how much to turn or how much extra effort to use to get to the perch I'm headed for. Makes flying in circles easier.

Well, I'm very happy that you're Bird of the Day. Makes this little tiel smile.

Good to be back here chatting with you. Leaving kisses; even better :)

Good night and sweet dreams.....

Sam bows to King Jake. I do hope you are having a wonderful time! Sam ducks just in time to a big beach ball soaring past. The beach volley ball looks to be fun. Sam hops up from a horse shoe toss gone wild as it twirls past them both. A badminton shuttlecock flies over their heads as two birds run by with the rackets flaying back & forth. It looks like greyt fun is continuing on today! Suddenly, a croquet ball rolls by and through the metal wicket that is set in the lawn. Sam smiles and steps away from the line of play. I guess saying "have fun" is rather redundant right now. Enjoy your time, your Majesty. You really deserve it! Sam bows once again, then gives big King Jake a hefty hug. Your humble subject, SamIAm

  Happy Hatchday Jakester!
Hope it's been a greyt one! Lots of goodies I see! I have a present for you, too! Sam pulls out a wrapped gift for Mr. Jake. Jake eyes it & smiles. He accepts it and soon rips paper flying in all directions. The bow lands on his head, sticky side down. He looks quite handsome as a "gift". Sam watches as he opens the box with one greyt big crunch of the lid. Jake flings it like a frisbee to the side. He begins to go through all the tissue paper & finds it. It is a golden bell that has a crisp clean ring to it. It is engraved with, The Golden Rule. "Do unto others as you'd have done to you." Sam smiles as Jake holds it up and rings it. Sam tells Jake, "That was part of the booty we brought back. I can't believe someone would think that was 'trash' & dropped it in some dark dank cave. Maybe they couldn't read English. I'm sure if they could, we would have never found it. I thought you should have it because I know no other who lives very much those words themselves. At least, tries his hardest to do so. Happy Hatchday you big lug! I loves ya, MAN! Hugs, SamIAm

Kiddo rushes up to his buddy with a hatchday bag of almonds and a vote, but he has to dodge a kiss from the big ole Macaw.

Yuck, Jake, I do not want a beaky or any other kind of kiss from you. How about a chest bump?

They bump and Kiddo goes flying since Jake is so much bigger than he is.

Good think I am fully flighted!
