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

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

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

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

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

  Hey Mr. Twiggs.

I am glad to see that we are not the only birds that have to put up with three cats! Thankfully we have ours mostly trained but every now and then they will decide they want to get too close to investigate so we have to put them in their place (they can get away pretty fast considering they their wings are missing).

We love to chew on remote controls too but dad seems to be losing his sense of humor about that for some reason...

Anyway, we have never been to New Mexico but Daddy grew up there and plans to take us back to visit our human grandmother someday soon so we will wave as we pass through on I-40.

Take care!

Come visit me, Sage & Pepper.

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

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

  Hello from Caymus...
Hi Mr. Twiggs! My mom is doing a little research on Red-Bellied Parrots to see how compatible one would be with me. Do you have any other flock members? Are any of them Conures? The reason she asks is the weekend my mommy and daddy went to a bird show and met a 6 week old male Red-Belly. Mom really fell for him, and daddy’s “thinking about it.” But mom wants to ask around to see if other mommies or daddies have any advice on if bird like you would tolerate someone like me who is constantly “on the go” and has very little fear of anyone or anything. Here’s a vote and a big birdie hug, and we appreciate your expertise!

  Hey Mr Twiggs
Good morning my friend. It is a cold one again here in Wisconsin. Hope you are staying warm where you are. I was 'helping' Mommy with her paperwork yesterday. I had great fun. I don't know why Mommy was upset when I helped myself to an envelope or two. Mommy went and got her feathers trimmed yesterday. Funny, she did not squack. I do self trimming. Mommy is working to help me stop that habit. Well, I got to fly so I beaked the vote thingy for you and leave you birdie hugs. Have a wonderful day in the Lord. Sassy

  Nice to meet you!
Of all things, I was just talking about Albuquerque-- My humans used to live there. I am a red-belly, too! You are a handsome devil! I've never had an M & M, but I do try to grab another no-no-- I want COFFEE! I will dive into a coffee cup at the first chance if I'm out and it's unattended. I just had to vote for another Red-belly with a weakness for the unhealthy stuff. I bet your humans don't let you have much candy. I don't get to have coffee either-- unless they are a millisecond too slow! :) I've recently discovered the joy of fresh sprouts. That, and there's nothing like brussel sprouts and Cheerios! (Why is mommy making such a sour face over that combination?) Anyway--votes for you! Have you had any Hatch Green Chiles? Oh, how we miss them!

  Hey Mr. Twigs!
I've never had M&M's, my mom won't let me have chocolate =/ It looks really good though! You must have a lot of fun playing with your bird mom and dad =) I used to have a bird daddy and mommy until I was given to a little girl. Now I get *a lot* more attention than I used to living with 6 other birds and 12 dogs. I love it here!

  Hi!
I love getting my picture taken too! I pose sometimes BUT after a few seconds I usually run up to the front of my cage and stick my face in the lens. My mommy has gotten some funny shots that way. The one of me in my profile with my head tilted (I think it's my last photo) is when I ran up to the front edge of my cage when she was taking my picture.

I like sitting on my mom's lap or arm when she's using the computer too. SOMETIMES I'm a bad bird and I'll leap onto the computer table, rip a key off the keyboard and then I'll run around the desktop when she's trying to catch me to get the key back. It's so much fun!! Wish she'd just let me crunch up the key into little pieces.

Come visit me, Sunny.

  Hi from another red belly!
Hi! I'm a red belly too and I'll be 8 in March.
I loved mashed potatoes too and dancing! I always dance around when I get impatient because someone isn't getting me out of my cage fast enough OR giving me some of what they are eating fast enough.

What do you like to play with? I love empty tissue and cracker boxes.

Do you like to dip food, such as crackers or pizza crust in your water dish and then fish out and eat soggy pieces of it? I love doing that!

Here's a hint.. When you're trying to climb up to your water dish with something big, hook the cracker or whatever over the side and use it as a tool to help pull yourself up with! It works every time... It makes my "people" laugh too.

Come visit me, Sunny.

  Hi Mr. Twiggs!
Mr. Twiggs is awfully cute. You should send that photo of him below in to Bird Talk, it's just so adorable! Thanks for the story on how Mr. Twiggs got his name. My Twig bird got his name because I had already picked out the name Leaf for the little yellow cheeked one. My boyfriend jokingly suggested Twig for other, and thats what he became thereafter. It's a great name! He can say it really well. My Twig tells great "Twig" stories, too :)
