  Hi Zazoo
Hi everybirdie. Zeena here today with another very unique and endangered bird that is fighting for survival .The Nicobar Pigeon.
The Nicobar pigeon (Caloenas nicobarica) is a pigeon found on small islands and in coastal regions from the Nicobar Islands, east through the Malay Archipelago, to the Solomons and Palau. It is the only living member of the genus Caloenas. They drink water without having to raise their heads in the process; their chicks are helpless at birth but develop at an amazing pace . What is more, they forage for fruits of plants that have evolved with them the entire time. The Nicobar is planning and planting forests as they forge and eat.

It is a large pigeon, measuring 18-22 inches in length. The head is grey, like the upper neck plumage, which turns into green and copper hackles towards the breast. The breast is grey. The tail is very short and pure white. The rest of its plumage is metallic green. The cere of the dark bill forms a small blackish knob; the strong legs and feet are dull red. The iris is dark. Females are slightly smaller and less colorful.

The Nicobar pigeon roams in flocks from island to island, sleeping on offshore islets where no predators occur and spends the day in areas with better food availability,. Its food consists of seeds, fruit and buds, and it is attracted to areas where grain is available. A gizzard stone helps to grind up hard food items. Its flight is quick. Unlike other pigeons groups fly in columns or single file, not in a loose flock. The white tail is prominent in flight when seen from behind . The young birds' lack of a white tail is a signal of their immaturity clearly visible to an adult Nicobar pigeon, it is obvious at a glance which flockmembers are neither potential mates, nor potential competitors for mates.

This species nests in dense forest on offshore islets, often in large colonies. It builds a loose stick nest in a tree. It lays one elliptical faintly blue-tinged white egg.

Nicobar pigeons are hunted in considerable numbers for food, and also for their gizzard stone which is used in jewelry. The species is also trapped for the local pet market, but as it is on CITES Appendix I, such trade is generally illegal. Internationally, captive breeding is able to supply the birds demanded by zoos, where this attractive and unusual bird is often seen. Direct exploitation of the species, including the illegal trade, might be sustainable on its own; however, its available nesting habitat is decreasing. The offshore islets which it requires are often logged for plantations, destroyed by construction ,or polluted by nearby industry. Also, increased travel introduced predators to the breeding sites, and colonies of the Nicobar pigeon may be driven to desert such locations or be destroyed outright. There is an estimated 1,000 adult birds remaining, its long-term future is increasingly being jeopardized.

Hello everyone, Zeena here with today's topic. The African Grey Mutations. Please note that all mutations occur spontaneously. A hybrid is made by combining two species from the same family group. Mutations do occur in the wild, but often fail to survive due tot heir coloration making them easy prey.
Several mutations occur naturally in the wild, like the F2 Pied Mutation, which results in a broad red band across the abdomen. 1998 saw the first created Grey mutation when South African bird breeder Von van Antwerpen and New Zealand partner Jaco Bosman selected F2 Pieds and created the first red African Grey. These early red pigmented Greys sold for more then $250,000 US each. Since the early 1990s red-factored Greys were being caught in the wild and sold to breeders who in turn attempted to propagate the coloration. This first red baby saw the beginning of a number of spontaneous mutations occurring all around the world.
Today there are a large number of beautiful, rare mutations available to breeders and collectors. Each mutation possesses the same personality traits, intelligence and healthy composure as their normal Grey relatives. Although some argue that mutation breeding weakens the lines, to date this has not proven to be true, since these mutations occur from F1-2 generation parents, and often from visually normal grey parents who carry the mutation coloring.
Today we will stop and take a look at several of the more common, and some fairly new and uncommon mutations available. Each has it's merits, and following. It takes many years and generations to stabilize a new mutation to breed true-to-type. Dedicated breeders work hard to breed the strongest, healthiest birds from the chosen mutations. The road to success it wroth with pit-falls and disappointments, but the desire to perpetuate their selected mutations makes it a labor of love to continue onwards.
Most of the mutations shown today in the gallery are unavailable to the public. Those that are sell from $5000 to over $150,000US each. I hope you enjoy seeing these beautiful birds, some for the very first time.

Hello everybirdie, Zeena here to start of this week with a visit to one of the planet's wonders in the avian field. It was a special request from our dear friend Mr. Kiddo. We need to be very quiet as we visit these unique and highly endangered gems of the bird world. I wish to thank everyone for their votes and input.
The kakapo (Maori: kakapo, night parrot), also called owl parrot, is a species of large, flightless, nocturnal, ground-dwelling parrot of the super-family Strigopoidea found only in New Zealand. It has finely blotched yellow-green plumage, a distinct facial disc of sensory, vibrissa-like feathers, a large grey beak, short legs, large feet, and wings and a tail of relatively short length. A combination of traits make it unique among its kind; it is the world's only flightless parrot, the heaviest parrot, nocturnal, herbivorous, visibly sexually dimorphic in body size, has a low basal metabolic rate, no male parental care, and is the only parrot to have a polygynous breeding system. It is also possibly one of the world's longest-living birds. Its anatomy typifies the tendency of a bird's evolution on oceanic islands, with few predators and abundant food: a generally robust physique, quick movement efficiency at the expense of flight abilities & reduced wing muscles, . Like many other New Zealand bird species, the kakapo was historically important to the Maori, the indigenous people of New Zealand. It was hunted and used for both for its meat as a food source and for its feathers . It was also kept as a pet.
The Kakapo lays one to three eggs in a ground concave usually only raising one or two chicks per breeding season. The species is in a critically endangered position due to poaching, habitat distraction and the introduction of predators such as feral cats. Man's infringement on their breeding territory is causing a drastic and rapid decrease in numbers with only 6 chicks in 2012 surviving to maturity. A key part of the Recovery Plan is the supplementary feeding of females. The kakapo breeds only once every two to five years, when the Dacrydium cupressinum (rimu), produces protein-rich fruit and seeds. Observations of the relationship between intermittent breeding and the plant's mast year help biologists choose which suitable supplementary foods to increase kakapo breeding frequency. In 1989, six preferred foods (apples, sweet potatoes, almonds, Brazil nuts, sunflower seeds and walnuts) were supplied to 12 feeding stations. Males and females ate the supplied foods, and females nested on Little Barrier Island in the summers of 1989–91 for the first time since 1982, although nesting success was low. In March 2014, with the kakapo population having increased to 126, it sits on the verge of extinction. As man's awareness of their plight becomes known it is hoped that Conservation efforts will see a greater success in breeding these wonders of the Parrot World.

  Hi Zazoo--Zeena with my BOTM blog
Hello to all my BC friends, Zeena here with today's BOTM POST/ Today we stop for a visit in New Zealand's lush forests to meet the endangered, but beautiful New Zealand Pigeon. Thank you to all who shared their feelings regarding the cross species Galah Too and Cockatiel. The hatching of this specimen may answers years of debt over the relationship between Cockatoos and Cockatiel.

The New Zealand pigeon, arboreal fruit-pigeon found in forests from Northland to Stewart Island/Rakiura, ranging in habitats from coastal to mountainous .[6 The general morphology is that of a typical pigeon, in that it has a relatively small head, a straight soft-based bill and loosely attached feathers. It also displays typical pigeon behaviour, which includes drinking by suction, a wing-threat display, hitting with the wing when threatened, a diving display flight, a 'bowing' display, ritualized preening and 'billing' during courtship. New Zealand pigeons build flimsy, shallow, twiggy nests and feed crop milk to hatchlings.

The mainland New Zealand pigeon grows to some 51 centimetres (20 in) in length and 650 grams (23 oz) in weight, compared to 55 centimetres (22 in) and 800 grams (28 oz) for the Chatham Island variant.[8] The head, throat and wings are generally a shiny green-purple colour, but with a bronze tinge to the feathers. The breast is typically white and the bill red with an orange tip. The feet and eyes are red. Juveniles have a similar coloration but are generally paler with dull colours for the beak, eyes and feet and a shorter tail.

The New Zealand Pigeon breeds in spring and fall, dependent on the availability of fruit, especially figs. They eat both the fruit and leaves as well as flowers from several species of trees, and plants.New Zealand pigeons nest in trees, laying a single egg, in a flimsy nest constructed of a few twigs thrown together. The egg is incubated for 28–29 days and the young bird takes another 30–45 days to fledge. In seasons of plentiful fruit the pigeons can successfully nest up to four times.

The Department of Conservation is involved in educating the public about the plight of the New Zealand pigeon and encouraging local initiatives to save it. In Northland, the Department has been working with local iwi in an attempt to curb illegal poaching by educating young Maori about the disastrous effect this activity is having on the birds' survival rate. On the Chatham Islands, landowners have helped protect the habitat by creating reserves and fencing remnant bush to keep out stock. Numbers have recovered from a low of about 40 birds in the 1980s to around 525 in 2013.

  Hi, Zazoo! You look like ME!
And I bet you like Nutriberries, just like me, too. I love to get up on the couch with Mommy & Daddy when they watch TV, because it's my snack time. I get two Nutriberries, but I'm always interested in what Mom has. The other night she had a banana and I sort of dove into it and made a big mess. Then I play with my foot toys. I don't like head scritches right now because I am getting new feathers and I look like a porcupine. Man, do they itch! We have 3 kitties and they are fun to chase around. I took a bath in their water fountain, though and got feathers in their water. They went to management and Mommy told me the pie plate was my bath. Sometimes I cheat and just get my feet and my tail wet and say "All Done!" Mommy plops me back in the pie plate and says "ALL of you gets clean!" Fooey. Sometimes Mommies are no fun! But most of the time I get away with lots of stuff because I am just SO cute and she loves me SO much! Write back!

Come visit me, Tillie, Layla, Sully & Caoimhe.
