*******We are always visiting our local bird store to be around the other birds and bird lovers. Tahoe showed up and was always quivering. She would never come out of her cage, but once she was out, she'd step-up and be fine. I learned she was a very special bird who needed a home and a loving family. I kept going in and finding myself drawn to this lovely endearing bird. I had been reading so much about Greys and my husband realized how serious I was about her. He agreed that we get her and we couldn't be happier! Life with a Grey in the House is amazing!.

Congo African Grey

Yogurt covered papaya and almonds in the shell

I love my perch near the window and also the back of the chair on the porch

If the dogs come around while I'm being held, someone's gonna get poked!

She knows just the way I liked to be scritched on the neck and to cuddle. He passes out great almonds...I'm starting to warm up to him...a little.

  Hi Tahoe & Flock
T'was the night before Christmas, when all through the tree,
the birdies and parrots were all filled with glee,
The clutches were snuggled in their down feathered nests,
while vision of flight, sent them all soaring west.

Fresh millet sprays had been hung with great care,
with hopes that "Old Scarlet" (Parrot St. Nick) soon would be there.
The Conures and Amazons had all settled down,
but those crazy cockatoos were still hopping around.

When high in the tree tops, a ruckus arose,
I thought I should check, just to see what goes.
Peeking through branches, leaves lit by the moon,
I thought I was dreaming it looked just like noon!

When what to my wondering eyes should there be,
but a flock of eight Grey's with Red Tails shining landing in the next tree.
Gliding behind, holding reins in his beak,
I spied the red bird, with a blush on his cheek.

He whistled and squawked, calling each one by name,
buoyed by a breeze, as closer they came.
Now Talon, now Josey, now Dayo and Ana Grey,
on Corky, on Misty, on Gilda and Gracie.

To the top of the palms, to the top of trees tall,
now fly away, fly away, fly away all!
I watched as they circled the green jungle maze,
and thought for a second I'd lost sight, I was in such a daze!

But, soon they appeared, drawing a basket behind,
which was filled with new toys of the bright, shiny kind.
Back to my branch I climbed mighty quick,
I'd heard of Old Scarlet, surely this was no trick!

He carefully perched by an old snoring grey,
while I fretted and wondered if he'd get scared away.
He wasn't even distracted when the parakeet sneezed.
He hung the new whirlygigs, sighed and looked pleased.

Standing proud and quite stately, he filled me with trust;
but I felt ashamed, his feathers were covered with cockatoo dust.
He paused, just a moment, fluffed and preened in a stoop,
turned around slowly, saying "At least it's not poop."

Then he laughed out loud--like a real human being.
I blinked my eyes twice, at what I was seeing.
He picked up a peanut and tossed it my way.
"Here's a small Christmas treat. Don't get spoiled, okay?"

He strutted back to the basket, put a strap round each wing,
chirped at his flock, who started to sing.
Their tones were so perfect, they were magically dear.
I was sure it was Memorex or a choir quite near.

The melody lingered, for a moment or two,
but I caught one last glimpse, before they flew.
His eyes were so merry, twinkling with impish delight.
His charming ways had brightened this long Christmas night.

As upward they soared, toward the golden round moon,
I heard every word, he joyfully crooned.
"Merry Christmas to all, peace, joy and cheer.
Be good little birdies. I'll see you next year!"
love Cori,Boo Boo & the BAD Budgies

  Hi Tahoe!
“Hi, I'm Jester! I am running for Bird of the Month, and I would love if you would stop by and vote for me if you have the time! We are going on vacation all month, and we are having lots of fun together! Today we are headed to Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts! This is a place that mom and her family used to go to a lot when she was younger, and she said it is wonderful. (: Our first stop is going to be the Gingerbread Cottages, so let’s go!!” They arrive, and all love cute colorful cottages! Zippy asks if they are really made of gingerbread, but Jester tells her that they are just called that. They stroll down the street, all picking out their favorite houses. Hulk’s favorite is a bright blue one, Picabo likes a yellow one, and Queen Sweetie loves a cute pink one. When they are done looking at the cottages, they head to the Gay Head Cliffs. When on the cliffs, the birds have a lovely view. They snap some photos and enjoy the view, before heading to their next stop. Their next stop is Mad Martha’s Ice Cream. The birds get their favorite ice cream, and sit and enjoy it. When they finish their ice cream, they head over to Oak Bluffs, to visit The Flying Horses Carousel. They get there, and learn that it is the oldest operating platform carousel in America. They birds all get on the carousel, and have a very fun time, going round and round, and trying to grab the rings. They had so much fun, that they decide to ride it again! After their second ride, they head off to their last destination. They arrive at The Tabernacle in Oak Bluffs, to hear Vineyard Sound, a male vocal group. They all enjoy the performance, and have a lot of fun. After that, they head to the cottage they rented, and relax and play games until bed. – See you tomorrow! Hugs, Jester

Come visit me, Jester Bean, Pressie, Honey Belle, King Grey Bird, Paris, Peatree & Angel Budgies.

  Dear Lady Tahoe-a special note from LaLo & daddy
Today's blog note will be one of a personal nature! It deals with dad's failing health, but mostly losing his strength and stamina! It has been brought to our attention by several of our dear friends that they are concerned for him! He just don't have the ability to answer all our notes everyday, unlike the old times when we would do as many as 20 to 30 a day! Please try to understand our occasional absence from your page is not a reflection of our love and admiration for each of you, be patient with us! Dad has not told you everything, but he firmly believes the BC is for Parrots only, not about some human malfunction! That is all we want to say about this issue at this time, suffice it to say we love all the friends we have made over all the many years on BC! Don't forget to remember the brave souls that landed on the bloody Normandy Beaches on June 6th 1944, my grampa Dallas was one of them, Lord rest his soul! Our love as usual to all in your home, don't worry about us, just love us...

Eternal love, no matter what, Ms LaLo Lee & my proud Dallas family

PS~Good luck to your horse in the Belmont Stakes today, we want a Triple Crown Winner, for Ms Chyna & aunt Jane, if for no other reason...

  Hi Tahoe
we had a ball celebrating with you. thanks for inviting us. that cake was delicious it was a beautiful day today and after mom finished trimming the forsythia off of the road so the township doesn't come and hack them away she was going to take us outside but as she was dragging all the cut branches she saw the neighbor with his pesticide canister strapped to his back spraying his rocks with the wind blowing it right on our property so that put an end to us getting outside.

You're looking as beautiful as ever. In fact, being 15 years old makes you look all the more gorgeous!

Wishing you an extra special sort of day of celebrating life, love and all the good things that have happened along the way.

Kelly *v*

P.S. All is well with me and the rest of the McFlock. I've spent the last five or six months enjoying the privilege of flight, something I'm so hoping I won't lose now that the weather's warmer and we're going outside now and then. I've recently started to fly to mom on command, something I'm sure she doesn't want me to forget how to do so surely she won't take my long wing feathers away from me now. Sending a hello to Molly and Cookie from RaneBeau and Kirby (who has a bit of news for Cookie).
