Dad continues to have health issues, but hopefully he is getting a all the time. For now it is just watching the protein, because the chemo left his kidneys weak.

Kiddo flew into Dad's warehouse, but the owner of the company said he had to go OR ELSE! Finally after a week they managed to lure Kiddo down using a baloney sandwich as bait. After trying unsuccessfully to find his owners, he tried living for a few weeks with Dad's co-worker and her African Grey. That didn't work out (the grey was jealous and so was Kiddo), so he came to live with us. He was supposed to be Dad's bird, but he bonded with Mom from day one, and now we are best friends. I love him dearly. Although I had never thought of having a bird as a companion, now I can't imagine life without him. The first thing I do each day is join him for breakfast and beaky kisses. We share our lives and love. What joy he has brought to my life.

Hi! My name is Kiddo says vote 4 BooBoo #162724 for BOTM!

I am a Senegal Parrot from Simi Valley, CA.

Dad: Superbrat, Mr. Snooty Beak & Falcon.
Mom: Cupcake, T-Rex & Sugar Butt
At bedtime: Bonzo


13 years old   M

Senegal Parrot

Raw cashews and almonds. Sweet potatoes, grapes and bananas. Dried papayas are definitely parrot candy.

The heating grate over the door (when the heater isn't on). My playstands. Mom's kneecap and shoulder.

Dad: I am very jealous of the time Mom spends with him. She should be with me 24 hours a day.

Mom loves to cuddle me when it is time to go to sleep at night. I love to snuggle up under her chin and coo at her. We have a great time together.

Doing the "Godzilla stomp" when Dad sticks his head in to say hello. I am a very tough hombre. I know I could take him out any time I want. I am just biding my time.....Of course, I do dance with him, too. I am the best dancer in the house!.

Watch your fingers....my beak is sharp..

  Hi Kiddo
It's Popeye.
Mom needed things at Costco so she sent dad over to Costco right when the opened yesterday. She said that it would not be crowded at that time. WRONG! It was packed. Dad managed to make his way through the store and even made his way to the "grazing stations". All in all, it worked out ok.
When dad got home and put stuff away it was time to pay the month's bills. We know that dad loves doing this because of all the neat sounds he makes. Does anybirdy know what a "&%$*@@" is? Anyway, that went on for the longest time.
Finaly, dad was finished and he and mom could relax. Yeah, we'll see about that! "Squawk squawk squawk! We want our snacks!" "Oh, so mom and dad get to eat that Margarita Pizza and we get apples? "NOT FAIR!!"
Today will be clear, with a high of 84 and a low of 54.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Popeye

We had to say goodbye to our 15 year old doggie, Ms Tiger, yesterday. Mom mad the decision that since she was in so much pain and not able to get around without help that is was time to let her go. She will be missed and mom is in a zombie state for awhile ... sigh. Have a great day and soak up that sun. V4U. Hugs.

That is good the ins co has the necessary paperwork to process the claim. Sounds like that hospital more training in the billing department. Hopefully all gets straightened out and your mom won't have to worry anymore about it.

Another wonderful Milonga. Ms. BB's green ice cubes was a great idea. Food is always delish and can't beat the music and singing.

  Hi Kiddo,
My vet visit went good, she liked my camo outfit. :)

She said I looked very cute and stylish. :)

Unfortunately I still hafta wear my collar tho.

I hafta go and see her again next Saturday as I hope that will be the last.

Mom hasta give me the rest of the antibiotics until its all gone.

By then I should be good.

Mom has let me preen for a few hours today so that was nice and I'm trying to be good and not pick at my boo.

Laka went to the vet too but her appointment was in the morning.

And she didnt like the part when they took me in the back to take my blood. :(

Mom didn't hear me scream so I guess that was kinda good.

This test will show if my kidneys or liver is infected. Also it'll check for diabetes too.

The vet told mom he could get the results by Wednesday or Thursday at the latest.

My bill broke moms bank account, she didnt have enough on her credit card so she had to do a half from the savings to her checking and also used what was left on another credit card.

I sure hope we get some good results and that what I have is easily treatable.

I'll let you know when I get my test results back.

Love, hugs and a vote.

We too are having problems with the hospital. One bill they are having a hard time printing for us and another they say we are behind (first time getting a bill) ... what's with that????
Thanks, I just love the song Danny Boy. Glad you enjoyed it.
Enjoy those 82/83 temps for me. I hope those trucks try to be quiet around you. Just yell at them!!!

  Hi Kiddo
This morning was a bright sunny morning with the highs being 36 and the lows of 30.Its 28 right now.Mom got us up and cleaned our cages and fed us and then skin sis came over around 9:30 this morning with Peepers and Celine.Mom got them set up in a spare cage and then Mom,Dad and skin sis took off for IHOP as my dad had been wanting to try their criss cross croissants so they went and had them,then dad took them through the car wash to see all the pretty colors of the soap as it went on the windows of the car,looking like a rainbow.When they came home,Mom did birdie cures on every birdie,nails,beaks and flights and then skin sis wanted to bake something with Mom as this would be her last time to do so as she's going in for surgery next week.So they made seven layer cookies,cherry dump pie,and mock pumpkin pie.Mom gave skin sis half of what they baked to take home with her and skin sis left around 5:30pm.Mom cleaned up the kitchen and all the baking dishes and mixing bowls and utensils.
Mom kept trying to get me to eat,and I finally obliged her and just nibbled a little of my warm bean mix,just to make her happy.She gave me an animal cracker later on in the afternoon and I wouldn't eat that either and I love those.After awhile I nibbled on a few crumbs.Mom is taking me with her to Nana's tomorrow as I always seem to do better there where eating is concerned.I will try and eat for you though Kiddo,I just love hearing how you are enjoying the warm sunshine there and getting the sun on your handsome feathers.I promise I'll try to eat in the morning when Mom gets us our bean mix before she leaves for Nana's.Mom is holding off getting me on the scale til mid week at least.
I also want to thank you again for giving us the best time ever last night,I didn't want to go home and I stayed til the end.I have to thank you for my winning for my picture,I was so ecstatic,it really made my day,and the food that Lizzie made and your sweet wife bird SweetPepper's chicken tenders were my favorite along with those red velvet cookie bars!Thank you so much for always making the next Milonga better than the last one!
They both attended Mario's Memorial and it was just so beautiful,tears were coursing down both Mom and skin sis's faces,it was such a beautiful ceremony and all of us including Mom and skin sis are so thankful to all those involved with making it such a wonderful and special time.We all just can't thank you enough for all the outpouring of love and caring you have given us here,you have put the sun back in the sky for us and in our hearts.
Wishing you a greyt day and I'm sending you all my love along with warm birdie hugs!Loving you always and forever,Dixie

  Heya, Kiddo!
Yeah, Mom is watching that bald spot. She says now I have a part in my feathers like she has in her hair--very thin and sparse! I am doing fine though. Mom sneaks that ointment on it when I am least suspecting--that is good for her, cuz it preserves her fingers!!

Not much happening here. It was a lovely day with Mom. Colder, with winds that gusted to 40 mph. Sounded like winter when you were near the window in Mom's bedroom. Nice and toasty inside though.

Had a great time at the Milonga last night, and we stopped over at Mario's memorial too, but think we mixed up the times. In any case, we did get there and it was lovely.

Have a super day, and I have a feeling that your Mom does not stink after her workouts. Dewy, yes. Smelly, nope.

  Hi Kiddo
The Purpose of Play
All play that wild birds may use helps them develop necessary survival skills. Even adult birds may continue to play and refine their abilities, though not necessarily with the same frequency as juvenile birds play.
Manipulation play helps birds get more coordinated to build nests, capture prey or extract food from different sources. This type of play keeps bills and talons in good condition and builds up the necessary muscle strength and dexterity for intricate actions.
Investigation play teaches young birds about the world they inhabit, including edible and inedible foods and what objects are safe to touch. As birds investigate more, they refine their ability to cache objects and develop their senses.
Chasing play strengthens wing muscles and helps young birds develop greater agility in the air, or for terrestrial birds, strengthens their legs and helps them be more agile when running. This also helps carnivorous birds develop sharper hunting skills.
Taunting play sharpens a bird's reflexes and increases their agility. It also helps them learn to anticipate prey reactions or how to avoid predators, and will be useful for mobbing behaviors or defending their territory.
Balancing play strengthens foot and leg muscles and helps birds learn how to use their wings to counterbalance air currents or disruptions. Balancing can also be useful for different types of foraging or courtship displays.
Curiosity play teaches birds more about their world, expanding their knowledge of both threats and benefits and helping them react to the unexpected. Curious birds can be more adaptable and will be more successful when encountering changes in their habitat.
Mimicry behavior teaches young birds how to act like adults of their species and learn essential skills such as proper sounds and songs or how to use their unique bills or other physical attributes to the best effect.
While different play behaviors all have a purpose in helping birds survive, some birds do seem to play just for the sheer joy and fun of the activity. As with many types of bird behaviors, the exact purpose of all play is not yet understood, even by dedicated ornithologists, but birders can still enjoy watching the playful behavior of birds. Every time they see their feathered friends engage in another game, they learn just a bit more about birds even as the playing birds are learning more about their world.

It's Popeye.
Not much happening around here this weekend. Yesterday mom helped clean floors and dad worked around the house, trying to fix little things that have been bugging him. Thanks to his efforts they are now BIG things. I guess he will continue with them today. In the afternoon, one of the neighbors had a birthday party and had a live band. Mom and dad sat and listened to them and it brought back memories for dad. He played in a band when he was in high school.
Today will be clear, with a high of 85 and a low of 56.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Popeye.

We want to thank everyone who hosted and worked hard for another successful milonga. Kiddo, Taz, Sam, Lizzie, and everyone else, including the dancing leprechauns, made it a great event. Congrats to all the picture winners, too. It was tough to vote this time, all the pics were outstanding.
Yesterday was a busy one for mom, and today looks to be a bit better. She is working at the museum from 1 to 4 on the African wildlife cart. It should be interesting, they got the giraffe ankle bone (cannon bone) back on the cart, and added a lion and cheetah pelt. There are also some cool skulls there to put out, a gorilla, a horn from a sable, and a few other things. It should be a fun afternoon.
After mom gets home, she's ours for the evening. It's still cold here, so I know mom will come straight home to be with us. Of course, she'll clean cages first, but then she's ours! I hope you are having a terrific day, getting lots of cuddles, scritches, and maybe even an extra treat. Hugs, Falco

Another great Milonga. Thanks to you, Taz, SamIam, and all the rest. Such a big turn out. Know that several birds had BC issues but we didn't seem to have any problems.

The parronts went to the bookstore yesterday. Mom wanted to get a cookbook for skinsis upcoming birthday. So many choices. Skinsis received a crockpot as a wedding gift and since mom never had one has no idea how to use it! Now she'll have a couple of cookbooks to give her recipes and ideas.

  Hi Kiddo
It's so frustrating to deal with insurance and doctors. We should go to a single payer system, kind of Medicare for all, which would eliminate a lot of this nonsense.
Today mom got some bad news. Quincy and Danny, the bob white quail who lived at the center, got put down yesterday. It's a shame, but both boys were close to 9 years old! In the wild, they live for a year or 2, and in captivity they can survive to 5, so we were lucky to have the boys for nearly 9 years. Mom cried, of course, but she realized a few months ago that their time was short.
In other news, mom attended a mammal handling class today, and at the end, they said to take mammals off site the volunteer first had to go with staff a time or 2. Mom asked if that was necessary for her, since she's been doing that for 13 years! They told her no, they would grandfather her in, haha.
Then she worked at the museum for the Preservation Fair today. She worked at a table that showed the effects of things like water, abrasion, light, and even using the wrong kind of pen could damage artifacts, prints, photos, etc. Did you know that Sharpies are not permanent, and can cause damage to your CDs? Mom found that out today. She writes on all the CDs she burns, and uses a sharpie. Guess that stops today.
I hope you are having a great evening. We'll talk more tomorrow. Hugs to you, Falco

  Heya, Kiddo!
Great Milonga! And I hafta say that I really like the contests that have the multiple winners in the categories like you have been doing. That is so awesome. We were not very active but we did read what was going on...And I will say that there are so many hungry birdies!! Wow, we went thru the food at such a good pace. We left some for the birdies who are still there, just in case they got hungry again.

We are supposed to get sleet and snow tomorrow. UGH. It was nice but a bit chilly today. Lots of sun.

Mom is not sure what happened, and neither am I, but I bumped my head someplace, and now I have this big old patch of bald!! My feathers were on the floor, and Mom heard a noise when she was in the bathroom. I made a beeline for her, and when she saw me, no feathers! I think I beaned my noggin. Oh, are those feathers gonna drive me nuts when they grow in. My cleaned the area off, and put a bit of antibiotic on it cuz there was a red spot. She is worried about me getting a concussion, but so far I am eating and being my usual self, so I guess I am doing okay.

Thanks for all the hard work on the Milonga!!

This morning was another dark,dreary,dismal pouring rainy day here and then by late morning it all turned to snow,with big heavy flakes coming down,our highs for the day will be 34 and our lows will be 28. Its 34 right now with those big flakes of snow still coming down.Its not sticking to much just the lawns and not the deck or the walkway or the street which is good.Mom was busy today cleaning our cages and room,then she vacuumed the whole downstairs of the house and kept trying to get me to eat.Ever since Mario flew to Rainbow Bridge I stopped eating.Mom has the day off today so she will be spending more time with us between playing catch up with the house chores. Its going to be an uneventful day here and that's just what we need right now,for Mom to stay home with us and not have to leave.We haven't had one of these days in quite some time now!You can bet I'll be at the Milonga tonight,I'm hoping to have some of SweetPeppers fantastic chicken tenders!

I am planning on being at the Irish milonga tonight with my gal Suzi so hope to see you all there later tonight! I usually help mom with my blogs here to all my friends on BC. Sometimes I will sit behind her on the couch and just watch. Other times I get down by the key board and wipe my beak or get mom to hold me a bit. Well if you ever want to get the parronts confused just hit that one that says caps lock. Yep that sure messes everything up especially when they need to sign in or do the pass word on something. Then to top things off trying to log into BC is bad enough but oh boy when I hit that key sure takes lots longer but now I notice mom is checking to make sure that cap lock isn’t on when she cant get on BC. Yep I try to help as much as I can LOL. “When I count my blessings I count my BC family” Leaving a vote with my note, hugs from Gus (RIP Chi chi)

  Hi Kiddo
Birds That Play
All birds engage in playful behaviors, and more intelligent bird species need greater amounts of the mental stimulation that comes from play as they develop. Bird species that can seem especially playful include…Jays, crows, rooks, ravens, magpies and other corvids,Parrots, parakeets, macaws and Keas,Tits, chickadees, nuthatches and small finches,Gulls, terns and related species.
Many social and adaptable birds also play, as do young birds of nearly all species as they socialize with their siblings in the nest. The extent of play and how much play each bird species carries into maturity varies, and different birds engage in different types of play to help them develop a range of skills.
Types of Bird Play
There are many different behaviors birds engage in that could appear to be play. The most common playful actions include…
Manipulation: Using the bill or talons to drop, toss, bend, tear, rip or otherwise manipulate objects, even objects without any food value.
Investigation: Seeking out unique objects or trying a wide range of different foods, continually noting new objects and poking or prodding them.
Chasing: Following one another in short or acrobatic flights, or chasing other objects such as insects or fluttering leaves.
Taunting: Teasing or deliberately harassing one another or other creatures, such as teasing a domestic cat or instigating fights.
Balancing: Swinging, swaying or dangling on wires or weak branches, possibly releasing and reattempting different acrobatic actions.
Curiosity: Responding to pishing or other unique noises, such as being attracted by ringtones, mechanical noises or music.
Mimicry: Imitating an adult's behavior, including physical actions such as foraging or preening as well as songs and sounds.
Not all playful birds will engage in the same behaviors, but they often try different actions and activities as they are learning new skills and refining their abilities. Play may be only between birds of the same species, while some types of play, particularly chasing or taunting, may be between birds of different species.

  Hi Kiddo
It's Popeye.
The plumber finished up around 2pm and did a beautiful job. Now mom can use the sink in her bathroom. However, what mom and dad found out is not good. When mom agreed to take the house as her inheritance from her grandmother she was told that the all the plumbing was new copper. Yesterday they found out that only about 10% of it is copper and that part was installed incorrectly and is causing leaks and could cause the pipes to break. Mom and dad are facing a $6,000 plumbing bill. Mom's family lied to mom and dad. Believe us, you don't want to talk to dad right now.
Today will be clear, with a high of 88 and a low of 58.
Hope your day is fun.
Hugs,
Popeye

  Dear Mr Kiddo you are a lucky parrot-Jenny & flock
...we will be seeing you, SP, and Tazzie, tonight It is still very cold here, but the sun is shinning brightly! We have a casual day planned, but we will be at the Irish Milonga, to bump wing elbows with our friends! Ziggy will be sitting at the band table with Ms Chyna, that little YCM surprised dad today by flying into the kitchen! He is fully flighted but rarely does fly, he was following his so called girlfriend 'Jen Lynn', who flies over the place! Daddy just smiled, he loves it (a little bit), LOL! Hope to see you all at the Milonga tonight! Saturday love from our home to yours, and spread our love to all in your sweet home, see ya all tomorrow...

Forever love from Jen, Ziggy, & our Dallas family

  Hi, Kiddo
Okay, being 80 degrees at 7:30 pm is just not right. It is spring and temps need to cool once the sun goes down. We got a cooldown but sounds like you continue to swelter. We imagine your mom must've been very warm during sunbath time and good she had you in the partial shade.

Hopefully that ins battle will get all straightened out. Should not take this long.

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Hey Kiddo !
It's the weekend ! Best of all only a few more days of school till mom's vacation ! She's off Friday and the first week of April :) Lots of time for ME ! Even though this morning there will be an incarceration while the folks go visit the g'parronts. They never went last week between mom's cold and dad's tooth. At least mom will come home with my sugar snap peas !

I'm really looking forward to tonight - me and mom need some fun and frolic ! It's been a long winter ! See you later ! love Cookie

  Hey Kiddo,
Just to let you know Spot has already set the time and place on the calender page.

It'll be this Sunday at 4 pm.

Thank you Sugar for putting Mario's Celebration of life on the calendar page for all to view.

This way every birdie can come and join in.

The Castle Page number is 239094 and it will be in the Ballroom this Sunday.
I'm guessing they only have 1 ballroom ? I don't want to get lost.

I guess Spot knew the Ballroom page number, that's good. :)

Since he said it starts at 4 pm EST I'll try to set up early so that if some birdies can only come in the morning it will be okay. I'll be there with my flock to welcome them. :)

Here's a vote for you my sweet friend !

Love & hugs,

Pookie

  Hi Kiddo
The BC just ate my blog!!!
Please send me some of those temps!!!
I was kissing my bunny. I like her, got her last year.
Have fun with insurance. My skinsis slipped and fell on broken glass/liquid and broke her wrist/arm. We are trying to get the place to pay for her medical bills. They are giving her a hard time.
Today I went for a ride in the car with mom. I saw some sun and asked if we were going to Florida? She said no but we should be. Dad was using some smelly ant stuff in the basement so, we had to be gone most of the day.
Very sad news today for the Pitts-Hays Eagle parronts. The remaining egg cracked open but was not viable. Mom eagle is so sad and staying with the lost baby. I hope to see them again next year.
Hugs
Chyna

Come visit me, Derby Farms, Chyna & Bailey ♥ RIP.

MY WELL TANNED HUSBIRD. OH I BET YOUR FEATHERS JUST SHINE WITH THE SUN YOU ARE GETTING. I CAN'T WAIT TILL ITS WARM ENOUGH FOR ME TO GO OUTSIDE.

I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT YOUR MOM IS STILL BEING BOTHERED BY THE INSURANCE COMPANY ABOUT THE PROCEDURE DONE LAST FALL. SEEMS LIKE THEY SURE DON'T TAKE GOOD CARE OF RECORDS OR MAIL THAT COMES IN. I PRAY THAT ITS DONE AND OVER WITH.

WE WOKE UP TO A COVERING OF SNOW ON THE GROUND THIS MORNING. OUR HIGH TEMP WAS 35 DEGREES AND WINDCHILL OF 21. WINDCHILL???? THATS FOR WINTER TIME NOT SPRING TIME. THE ENTIRE WEEKEND WILL BE ABOUT THE SAME. THEY SAY WE WILL GET INTO THE 50'S AND 60'S NEXT WEEK. I SURE HOPE SO.

PLEASE ENJOY SOME SUN FOR ME.

TOMORROW NIGHT IS OUR MILONGA AND SUNDAY IS THE MEMORIAL FOR MARIO. IT WILL BE A BUSY WEEKEND FOR US BIRDIES HERE ON THE BC.

SENDING YOU THE SWEETEST BEAKIE KISSES AND WARMEST WING HUGS.

YOUR VERY COLD WIFEBIRD,
SWEETPEPPER

  Heya, Kiddo!
Oh, you were so nice and warm today! We are so jealous! We were in the 20's with wind chills that made things brrrr!

Mom says that her boss told her that she is going to talk to the Big Boss about projects in other areas, as they don't want to lose her from the company. Mom also got submitted to a financial company but she has no hopes of that one--she worked in insurance pretty much her whole life, or as a nurse. So she understands health insurance and health stuff best. And then there is the tempting retirement part. So she will see what happens. She should have money coming in to the end of April or early May. She will figure it out by then! But she is tired of the rat race...but not tired of earning some nice pay. She is just concerned about the health insurance.

We are winter here again. UGH. Snow in some places last night. YUCK. Not sure what the weekend will bring. Wish it would be spring!!

Your buddy,
Kaji

Come visit me, Kaji ~ Vote Boo Boo #162724 for BOTM in April!.
