I am a rescue. I was sheltered in a basement when I was adopted. I was in a separate cage while 4 conures lived in the cage next door (these also were adopted). I think the plan was to breed us, however, since 4 of us are guys, us just wasn't happening. So we were offered to mom. My hatchday is January 8th since I am named for the King of Rock n Roll..

  Hello Elvis~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's going to be a billion degrees here again!hahahahahaha One month of summer to go and hopefully my rain will come back!
Russell Wilson is going to be a Seahawk until 2019!!! I guess he knew how much this 12th bird wanted him to stay! He is going to get a gazillion dollars! Well close to that I think! Now we have to worry about whether or not they have the money to keep the other players! I'm sure they make a whole bunch of money on merchandise so I think they can afford it! The players jersey's are 100$ each and this state is filled with people wearing them!
Training camp opens today and Taima is there! I can't wait to see the pictures! I follow him on Facebook and love to see all his pictures. Wish I had a wing span like that!!!
Have a great day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love from Seahawk Sugar!

  Hello Elvis~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!! I think it's hot just about everywhere now. I think we are going to break the record for the most days over 90 today. I guess they have been keeping the record for about 120 years.
Seahawks training camp starts tomorrow and Taima the hawk is coming over for a meet and greet! Wish we could get up there to see him but mom has to work the whole weekend. Everyone is very excited for football to start again. It seems rather dull around here without it!
We are finishing up laundry and getting things ready for mom to go back to work tonight. It's not much fun but I do have some new toys to keep me occupied!
I hope your day is just fabulous!! Stay cool and enjoy it!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's been nice here. We are suppose to get hot weather over the weekend but that is a good thing since it's Seafair weekend! The Blue Angels are in town! Cool! It goes on for weeks but the Blue Angels are only here for this weekend.
It's our weekend so we are going to be cleaning up the place. Boring I know, but it has to be done! Tonight we are going to watch a Harry Potter movie and have some popcorn! Love popcorn!
Enjoy your evening and I hope it's just perfect!

  Hi ya Elvis~
I hope you are having a fun day! I love the picture! I went and posted mine too! You are so kind to say I don't look like an elder! I am one! Don't mind it at all!
I supervised the turtle tank cleaning and now I am sharing some oatmeal with mom. I have dried cranberries in mine and she has raisins in hers. I don't like raisins much.
The rest of our morning will be spent cleaning bathrooms and finishing up the laundry. Not very exciting but it has to be done. We finally got some rain back so I am enjoying that. Who knew I would end up missing rain???
I have my gifts for my elders and am going to drop them off at the Milonga page. I'll be there but will be silent cause mom will be sleeping!
Enjoy the day and I hope it's just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug just for you!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Elder Elvis, who us the adopted Too you speak of..
...on Sugar's page! This note is from Elder Jen, and inquiring minds want to know! You know we love all Toos, Zons, & Greys, but what the heck, we would never turn our back on any parrot in need of love and a good home, and if we could not provide one, we would find it one! Tonight's Pow-Wow at the Milonga will be something really different and very exciting! I have been selected as a Tribal Elder, and I am honored, but I have no idea what to expect! Unfortunately we will not be able to stay long past the opening hellos and I love you's, that's about the time dad runs out of gas, I wish I could give a better reason, but as you age, you will understand better! We just love Chief Panther and his momma Staci & the Bigfoot tribe/family, especially his big bro Kevin who is an Army Airborne Ranger, the Army people stick together! Have a great Saturday, & give our love to all in your family, hope to see most of you tonight at the Milonga, I want a slice of fry bread and Custer Butt...

True love from Elder Jenny, and my Tribal members...WE WILL ROCK YOUR WORLD-----

  Hello Elvis~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Tell Doo to take a look again! Someone adopted him!!!
I guess you don't really know exactly how old you are. Mom knows exactly how old I am because my first mom left all my information at the pet store where she left me. I don't have a band because my parents were probably smuggled into California illegally! I guess that make me an illegal too! YIKES! hehehehe It was insinuated by the pet shop owner that the person my original mom got me from was breeding at home! I sure wish I knew what happened to my parents but they would not share any info on the breeder.
I hope you all enjoy the day!

  Hello Elvis~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's still cooler here and it feels wonderful. We are suppose to get some rain later too! It feels more like what the Northwest should feel like.
We are getting chores done today since mom did not do much this last week! It's catch up time and I have to say it's pretty boring. I want to come out of my play cage but mom has to take Jennifer to work so I have to wait until she gets back! I don't know why she doesn't trust me to be out when she is gone!hehehe
Mom tried calling dad this morning but he didn't pick up. He'll call back later. She needs to tell him that our rent is going up nearly $200. He is going to be pretty upset but everywhere in town is the same. Mom and Ian checked out all the places around here online and most are even higher. We are still going to be $50 below what new renters have to pay. They are talking about rent control in Seattle so every other city is kicking up the rents before that happens here. It's sad since they finally got the $15 minimum wage in Seattle and now everyone is going to have to pay more for rent. Things will never get better for people if they keep raising how much everything costs!
I hope your day is just perfect and that you get to do lots of fun stuff!

I hope you are having a wonderful day. It's cooler and cloudy here and I'm loving it.
It's our weekend so mom took a nap when she got home this morning. I had my English Muffin in my night cage and played with a toys while she slept. She has had to go out a few times but she's home now and we are trying to figure out what to make for dinner. Anything with corn bread sounds good to me!
I hope your evening is just wonderful!

  Morning sweet Elvis buddy from Jenny Lynn
This summer weather has just been crazy, severe rains, storms, heavy flooding all over, out of control wild fires, and oppressive heat! About all we can do is try to adjust and live with it as best we can! This will be a very busy day for us, with all the doctor appointments and errands to run, but we shall get to as many of our friend's pages as possible! Be well our dear friends, try to stay cool and dry, even though that might be a real challenge, please give our love to all in your sweet home, see ya all tomorrow...

Forever love from Jenny & our Dallas family

I hope you are having a great day! It's hot here again so I took a shower! Feeling pretty good!
Mom had chores to get done this morning. The kitchen and the bathrooms were pretty messy and no one else did any cleaning. It's usually like that unless dad is home. He helps clean.
Dad is in Maryland right now and he is picking up Monster Trucks! Isn't that fun? They have to be in Connecticut by
9 AM tomorrow so he'll be driving all night. He likes that better anyway since there is less traffic! I wouldn't mind seeing what a Monster Truck looks like but they are in trailers so dad won't even see what they look like!
I hope you have a nice peaceful Sunday just like me!

  Good morning handsome Mr Elvis Stark-from Jen Lynn
So far we have been very lucky, and have escaped most of the really severe storms and major damage, for which we are thankful! However mother nature has yet another one planned for us this weekend, and along with the oppressive heat index we are praying for deliverance once again! All through central Wisconsin, from Green Bay to Madison through lake Michigan are going be hit very hard, we are praying for Kaji, aunt DJ, and Hulk, we just want all our dear friends to be safe, that can't be to much to ask! Enjoy your weekend, and give my love to all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow...

Love always, stay safe, Jenny & our Dallas family

  Hello Elvis~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!! Today is my 6th BC anniversary! 6 years ago mom and I went looking for pictures of Amazons and discovered the BC! They were having Camp Birdie and I joined! It's been a wonderful 6 year all because I have made so many awesome friends! Sure do miss Camp Birdie though! It was so much fun!
There was a fire on South Hill last night. It's about 4 miles from me. It was all brush but there was wind and they were afraid that the embers might catch some houses on fire. They were getting ready to evacuate but they got it under control. They are using bulldozers to plow it all under so they won't have to worry about flare ups. Mom could smell it at work be we can't smell it up here. I think the wind is blowing the other way so that saved me from the stink! I'm just glad no houses burned down and not one was hurt and that I didn't have to smell the stink!!
Enjoy the evening and I hope it's perfect!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's been way cooler here the past few days and we even got some rain! I was missing it believe it or not!
Last week was so busy! I did not get much time on BC hence my absence from your page!
Dad was home for a few days last week. He was still working but it was all local deliveries and he got to come home in the evenings. There always seems to be too much running around when dad is home.
I have been molting so I have been a bit cranky lately. I bit mom a couple of times but there wasn't too much blood. She understands! I'm just cranky! I am still the cute, adorable, sweet Amazon the mom knows and loves!hehehehe
Back to school is in full swing at mom's store! The kids have only been out for 2 weeks so I doubt any of them are ready to look at back to school stuff yet! Mom says they do have really cute lunch kits and backpacks this year.
I hope all is well at your nest and that you will have a wonderful day!

  Love ya forever Mr Stark, you are special-Jenny
We were pleasantly surprised last night when we got a call from our sweet neighbor lady Judy Wyatt! She recently recovered from lung cancer, and chemotherapy, but she called to see how our daddy was doing, bless her sweet Christian heart! She is tough like Charles Dixon in Mi, they are strong survivors! We made it to Friday once again, but all our days seem to run together, but we don't mind, dad has taught us to be thankful for every day the Lord has granted us sunlight and time to spend together, life is good and it sure beats the alternative, dad is trying so hard to get back to a normal health pattern! Our love to all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow...

  Hello Elvis~
I hope you are having a great day! I hope your 4th was tons of fun! Ian told mom the fireworks went on here until midnight. At mom's work it went on until 4am! Ian told mom he went to check on me a few times and I fluttered! That means he woke me up!! It was nice of him to check up on me.
I am sorry I didn't get many notes out yesterday! Mom drove Jennifer down to her dads house. They decided to go to Olympia first because Half Price Books was having a half off sale. Ian said that made them Quarter Price Books!hahahahaha Anyway, you don't really want the Bad Mom in a bookstore because she will spend way too much time looking at the books while her adorable Sugar is home waiting for her! Merlin was locked up in the bedroom and I bet the Bad Mom forgot about that! The Bad Mom was gone for 3 hours! A trip down to Lacey (where Jennifer's dad lives) should only take 1 hour and 10 minutes! The Bad Mom bought 9 books and a reusable shopping bag for $4.17! Great bargain but the Bad Mom should have been home in 1 hour and 10 minutes!
Now mom tells me there is a Half Price Books in Tacoma and she wants to go check that store out! Tacoma is only 15 minutes away but after this fiasco I am not sure I can trust her to come right back!
It is still a billion degrees here and today it's suppose to be a billion and one! I think I have had enough summer now thank you! There are no fans or A/C left in any store around here! Guess everyone should have believed the Weather Channel when they said this was going to happen! Glad the Bad Mom did and got us extra fans! I'm staying cool!
I am very glad that Papa's picture made into the gallery. We don't know what happens because when we add it it was there and then we saved it and it wasn't there!
A pool party sounds like just the way to spend today! Let's go!

  Hello Elvis~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!! It was about a billion degrees here yesterday!!! Okay, it was 98 but it felt like a billion! We are really big babies when it comes to anything over 80! Guess it's going to be like this for the next week or so. Mom got the portable A/C out and Ian and Jennifer spent the entire evening on the sofa watching a silly show on HULU about people racing around the world. It thought it was pretty boring and nothing was blowing up either!!
When mom and Ian came up here to look for a place to live, about 20 years ago, they were having a heat wave and mom thought they were all being too dramatic. They lived in Mojave at the time and it would be 122 by 10am! Now mom understands! The cool weather was a huge selling point when they were looking for a place to move to! Dad was already working up here at the time. Just like with the snow, the heat happens up here every few years.
Mom is going to drive Jennifer down to her dad's house tomorrow so I am going to wish you a safe and Happy 4th today in case we don't have time for notes tomorrow. Mom is working through the weekend but Ian is off so he'll be here to take care of me and Merlin. Neither of us are bothered by fireworks but mom would never leave us alone anyway.
The gardeners are here now and trimming all the bushes. I guess they wanted to get an early start so they don't have to be doing it when it gets to be a billion degrees again!hehehe
Have a fabulous day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Elvis~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! I have had a nice day just hanging out with mom!
Well I have 5 new cousins! They are all canaries! Mom's sister took them in after their previous people decided to move to Eastern Washington and did not want to take them along. It's really not a very far move so I have no idea why they decided to let them go. There are 2 brown ones, a boy and a girl, and 3 yellow ones, 2 girls, 1 boy.
When mom's sister got them she saw that one of the little brown ones is sitting on a nest with 3 eggs! Guess that means I'll be having 3 more new cousins pretty soon. Mom's sister asked mom if she would like to have some canaries but mom doesn't know where we would put them and keep them safe from Merlin. Mom's sister has a second bedroom where the budgies and canaries live to keep them safe from her cat. I haven't seen a picture of them yet but I hope to soon.
We have had 8 days of temps over 85. We usually only have 10 for the entire year and it's only July 1st! Guess the weather channel was correct and it's going to be a hot summer here. I have been keeping cool by taking lots of showers. It helps with my molting too!
Enjoy the evening and I hope it is lots of fun!

I hope you are having a great day! It's nice here this morning and I'm snacking on some apples and almonds.
They opened up the firework stands yesterday so of course people were blowing them up last night. I think this is going to be going on for the rest of the week. You can actually buy fireworks up here year round because they sell them at the Indian Reservations. They are asking people not to blow them up this year because it's been dry and they are afraid of fires. I don't think anyone listened. Good thing for me is that they are not allowed in our complex. The noise doesn't bother me and I like the pretty colors it makes but it's nice not to have to worry about anything catching on fire.
Mom has one more night and then we have our weekend! I do not know what is planned but I hope we can watch a movie and have some popcorn! Popcorn by itself would be nice too!

  Hello my handsome Elvis-from Jennifer Lynn
More rain, gloom, & overcast for us today, you would think we would be used to it by now, but that is not happening! I must briefly report, that my daddy had a very rough night and his left knee (the trick one) was buckling during trips to the bathroom! He was going to run to the store to buy us all our fresh veggies, but that will just have to wait a day or so! It is caused from lack of oxygen being supplied to vital areas! CHF and COPD really sucks, but enough of that, no birdie wants to her about my daddy! TGIF to all our BC friends, be sure to love each other, we certainly love all of you, and give our love to all in your happy Friday home, see ya tomorrow...

I hope you had a great day. We had a quiet kind of day. Mom had some running around to do and then we had to get dad ready to go back out on the road. Mom grabbed all his stuff and put it on the dining room table so he wouldn't forget anything.
Once again we would like to thank every bird for their kind notes! We hope we can get more birdsonal notes done soon.
Mom went by and got Mandy's paw print from the vet today. It's just beautiful. She is going to get a shadow box and put it in there. That should keep it safe.
Mom is doing some rearranging also. We are just trying to keep busy and find our new normal.
Merlin has decided to be my best friend now. None of us realized how much he would miss Mandy. He has been trying to sleep by my play cage but I got down to the bottom and tried to bite him! He gets locked in the bedroom when mom leaves the house because she doesn't trust him or me!hehehehe
I hope your evening is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hello Elvis~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! As some of you know, we lost Mandy yesterday. It's been so hard not having her here. She wasn't there to get me out of my night cage and I had no one to share my toast with.
She was ready to go. Mom never understood that until yesterday. When mom got home Merlin was curled up next to her with his head on her shoulder. Mandy had quit eating on Sunday and when mom sat down next to her yesterday morning she knew it was time. It was very peaceful and the vets office were so kind. They did a paw print on a clay heart for us as a memorial.
We are working on a new normal around here. It's still seems so strange not to see her on her blanket in front of my play cage.
Thank you all for your kind notes. We appreciate it so very much.
Enjoy the day!

I hope you are having a great day! It's pretty up here but not going to be very warm. I can live with that!
Your mom's idea for a movie sounds like it would be a lot of fun! Sir Patrick Stewart is fabulous!!
Mom suggested to Ian that he should put sunscreen on when he goes out but he is usually wearing a hat. He doesn't wear it to work but any other time he will have it on. He loves that hat! So far he likes having no hair. He told mom he was going bald anyway so he wants to see what it's like. He sort of looks like mom's younger brother now!
That cat showed up in the tree again last night! Mom thinks that the people who own it let it out when they get home from work because it was suppertime when it showed up. Mom hopes it doesn't make a habit of coming to visit Merlin everyday because the howling woke her up! It doesn't seem to be around during the day so I think mom is right!
The school buses are all coming home early today since it's the last day of school here. I am looking forward to a summer of Marco Polo in the pool!hehehehe
Have a wonderful day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  My dear fabulously handsome Elvis-love from Jenny
Regretfully, I must report that dad has not regressed, but he has not progressed either, unfortunately it takes a week or ten days for new meds to come from the VA Pharmacy in Iowa City! He is trying everything he knows to change his schedule to a more favorable one, but for now we will only show a rare appearance on BC, unlike the old times! Please don't give up on us, WE WILL BE BACK, we promise! Love to all you love, see ya tomorrow...

Your forever friends, Jenny & our Dallas family

  Hello Elvis~
I hope you are having a great day!
We didn't get to watch a movie because dad was watching a show about making over bars! The man on that show yells a lot and there are tons of beeps when he is talking. I don't think that is a good thing! Dad got bored with it but iw as too late to watch a movie by then. Mom says we will find something and watch it early on Friday since she working.
Ian came out of the bathroom this morning and he had shaved his head!!! I let out a very loud "wooger" and got onto my corner perch. He was bald on the top and decided he would just shave off the hair and see if he likes it that way. He says it will grow back if he doesn't! It sure was a shock to me but I started laughing when he came to say hello to me!
The lady downstairs from us has a very old cat. She says it has dementia now and won't come in the house. It sits under my bedroom window and howls which gets Merlin up there and he starts howling too! Last evening Merlin was up there howling and dad said he would get him. He called to mom and said she had to see this! Mom looks out the window and there is an orange cat in my tree! It's not the one from downstairs. The cat kept climbing higher to get to Merlin so mom took Merlin out of the room and told the cat to get down. It climbed all the way to the top of the tree and got on the roof! It went to the other side of the building and climbed down.
Mom has seen the cat before and really doesn't like that the people let it out. There are lots of wild birds outside and since that cat is not afraid of heights, it needs to be kept inside so it can't get the birds! We live on a 6 lane road so it's not safe for the cat either! Sometimes Humans are so dumb!
I hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Elvis~
I hope you are having a great day! It's been busy around here with drawer cleaning. Mom had to go buy more drawer liner. I've been doing my part by yelling and making a fuss when she is out of the room! I am the bird so it's my job to make lots of noise!
Mom is looking for new placemats but couldn't find any she liked. She is going to try Bed, Bath and Beyond tomorrow and see if there is something she likes there. Dad spilled something on the ones we had and destroyed them! We have had them for a long time so it was probably time to get some new ones anyway.
Since mom is off tonight instead of Friday night, we will do our movie night tonight. Don't know what we are going to watch but there will be snacks so you know I'll be there. She wanted to get Jupiter Ascending but it's not at the Redbox yet. We'll find something we like!
Enjoy your evening and I hope it's perfect!
love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Elvis~
I hope you had a good day! It's been a very busy week here and today was no different. There always seems to be so much cleaning to do!
Mom, Ian and Jennifer loved Jurassic World. Mom wants to see Inside Out and Minions too but the others didn't seem interested. Mom will just go by herself if they don't want to go!
Mom did the marketing today and dad went with her. Not a good thing because dad just grabs stuff and never looks at the price! They did buy us a new food processor so we shall have grated carrots once again! The old one had a part that broke and Kitchen Aid does not make the model mom has anymore so we got a new one! This one is a Black & Decker since mom is mad at Kitchen Aid for not making replacement parts on a very expensive food processor!
I hope the evening is just wonderful! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Elvis-a special note from Jenny and 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, Jenny & 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...

  Elvie dear, some Friday love for the Starks-Jen
...we are in the process of making some toys for Poppy/Papa, but dad has slowed down and is running behind, we will send them to your sweet palace, yo must know by now we love all Zons! First of all, we want to thank all who took the time to come to King Ziggy's FB and BC pages, he don't get a lot of press these days! We also wish you all a Happy National Doughnut Day, that makes us think of Homer Simpson, and our heroes in Blue, and they are all heroes to us, where would we be without them! It was a hectic day for our poor old dad, he did all his running, and waited for his best friend Mike to come over and fix some issues with our old lawn mower, it works just fine for now! TGIF dear friends, and the neatest thing that happened was listening to aunt Eileen's pretty voice on the phone, she can lift our spirits without even trying! Give our love to all in your home, CYA tomorrow...

Forever love from Jenny ZonLynn & our Dallas family

  Hello Elvis~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It was very pretty here and not too hot! It's suppose to get hot this weekend but it probably won't be too bad. There are big trees outside my bedroom window and it stays nice and cool in there.
Mom took a nap when she got home this morning. She took Jennifer to work and then went to the market and got some rice for us to share for lunch! It was good! Tomorrow she is taking Jennifer down to her dad's house. He has his heart valve replacement surgery yesterday and it all went great. He'll be out of it for a while and has to spend about 5 days in the hospital. Jennifer's youngest sister is up from Florida so Jennifer will get to see her.
After that mom will be home and we will have our weekend! We are still working on drawers and closets but there will be time for us to just hang out, which I love!
I hope your day is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug just for you!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hello Elvis~
I hope you are having a good day! It is a wet, windy and cool day here in the Northwest. It's going to be like this for the next few days and then Summer is coming back! I'm enjoying it.
Not much going on around here. We have the kitchen to clean up but that is an everyday thing. The 12 inches between the sink and the dishwasher seems to be too far for some people around here!hahahahahaha I will of course supervise and give mom my opinions on how the job should be done. She would be lost without me you know!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's perfect!

  Hi Elvis
Hello everybirdie, Sweetie here on this first day of June. I have greatly enjoyed sharing with all my friend this past month. It has been mind provoking and educational for me and I have gained some awesome insight too. Sharing is after all what Flockcall.com is all about. The Advocate writers share from their daily life with Parrots. It offers the opportunity for everyone to share, express their thoughts, ideas and insights in a safe, nonjudgmental and encouraging form.
I am the last of the Sky Flock to run for BOTM. I follow a long line of worthy predecessors, King SKY, King Amando, King Casey, King Jesse, Queen Little Angel, Queen Angel Girl and Queen Zeena. I must say it has been a fun month and a great privilege to get to know each of you better in the process. The current Companion Parrot Crisis is far from over, and there are, as we revealed, no hard- fast rules or ways to resolve the issue. Too many Parrots, too few good, forever homes is at an epidemic level. If I venture to say, "all we can do is our best to share what life is truly like with a Companion Parrot." Perhaps one person at a time we can make an impact and make change for the better. If we do nothing, the problem won't just away.
I am one of the fortunate ones, I ended up in a safe place, and received the emergency medical care I required. The story often has a sad ending for many others who disappear never mourned or missed. Their life from start to tragic end a story of misunderstanding, neglect and sometimes intentional abuse. It is heart-breaking but none the less a reality for many Parrots.
I want to thank everyone for their daily votes and participation this past month. You have made my month purposeful. I hope that the sharing of information which once was Bird Channel will continue as we head into the future. I am now off to finish chewing my wooden blocks. It's a rainy day and perfect for some serious Parrot recreation.
Thank-you all for the honor bestowed on me, as receiving the title Queen Sweetie this morning. I tried to visit you all yesterday but BC would not let me post any blogs. Geesh. I would not have got here today without each and every one of you.
with love and hugs
Sweetie

  Hi Elvis
Hello everybirdie, Sweetie here with our Saturday blog. This month sure has flown by quickly. It seems like just yesterday I wrote my very first words, and now I an coming to a month's conclusion. I wish to thank everyone of you for your votes towards my quest for the Throne. Although it is not my ultimate goal, it is part of it. My main goal was to start some serious sharing and that goal has been far surpassed. Your input and comments are encouraging, and inspiring. We are but, one small group for Parrot lovers. Can you imagine what impact we could have if every Companion Parrot owner united the World over?
There is a sad trend among humans to disagree and even fight over what in fact equals nothing vital nor important to us Companion Parrots. All one has to do is view a photo on FB of a Parrot and dog to see the level of anger and opinions. No one asks if someone was supervising the interaction, or about the past relationship of the two. I am not referring to obvious dangerous situations were the bird could be in danger of injury or worse. Post a photo of a Parrot climbing into a cupboard, then read the comments left by others. There is obviously someone close by supervising, after all who took the photos? Instead of fighting over such non-essentials why not focus on what really matters?
Parrots are individuals. We have such singular personalities that there is no hard-fast rules that can work for every bird, in every home, with every owner. While one owner snuggles their fid, and another one believes that you should only scritch the head and upper neck area, neither is wrong. One owner might feel you should keep wings trimmed for safety and another that fully flighted Parrots are the happiest, both are right, in their own personal Parront-Parrot relationships. Every situation is unique. What works for one, may not work for another. It does not make one person right or wrong, it just equals the truth about living with a Companion Parrot. There are no straight forward, fits-all answers when it comes to Parrontship.
The important point is that sharing is not criticism. Sharing is openness to new ideas, and views. If all the Parrot Rescues would learn to live peacefully together rather then back biting they would accomplish so much more. That does not mean turning our backs on obvious wrong treatment, misuse of funds donated and outright abuse and neglect. Rather accepting that every Rescue, like every owner (yuck, there's that word again) is a separate unique situation. As long as there is mankind there will be good and bad. that is a sad given reality. Support those who are doing their best to help the Parrot Crisis.
Tell yourself each and every day that, "I AM a Companion Parrot Ambassador" and use your power to spread the word " ADOPT! DON'T SHOP!" and make a change one person at a time. YOU have the power.

  Hello Elvis~
I hope you had a great day!
We got up to 82 and there were lots of people in the pool! We had our fire alarm inspection this morning and it lasted all of 30 seconds! The guy walked through the hall into mom's room and said thank you and left! They had the outside alarms going for a very long time. The gardeners were here too trimming the bushes outside my kitchen window so it was even louder! I tried to out scream them both but I just wasn't loud enough! Mom says she is very thankful that the inspection is only once a year!
Have a great night! Leaving a vote and a big hug!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Elvis
Hello everybirdie. It's the weekend again and also the end of the month draws ever closer. I have had a wonderful month sharing and reading all your awesome thoughts, ideas and suggestions. The Companion Parrot Crisis is huge, far more then one small blue-fronted Amazon can tackle on her own but together with each of you we can and will make a difference. The general populous needs education and enlightenment about sharing their lives with one of us feathered wonders. As you all have so eloquently pointed out, we ARE NOT at all like owning a dog or cat. No one can own a Parrot. While dogs and cats are domesticated, Parrots are not, and never will be truly humanized. There is a problem when humans begin to rationalize our behaviors in humanistic terms. Our behaviors and responses are based on instinctive and learned responses just as those of our wild cousins. We can be trained to do tricks through positive re -enforcement but we can not be controlled or expected to obey commands as a dog will.
One point I have observed in my short 2 years of life is that people tend to judge us by our species not by our individual personalities. Not all Macaws lunge, not all Cockatoos bite and scream, not all Amazons are aggressive and unpredictable. The list goes on and on. We are singular beings, and although certain traits are inheritable we are also influenced by our past experiences. Companion Parrots can not be generalized into "types" any more then all humans are the same.
My hope and desire is that one day there will be no need for Parrot Rescues, and every Parrot will have a loving forever home of its own. The abuse and neglect will be in the past and every Parrot will know happiness and never experience fear or terror. Will that world ever come? No, but if even one Parrot can be freed from pain, released from it's caged prison, and receive it's very first spark of hope my life will be rewarded, and my purpose on Earth fulfilled. Momma Deb says she will not rest until she knows changes have come, until Rescues are not forced to turn away unwanted Parrots from lack of space and funds. Her goal is awareness, education and to make a change even one person, one Parrot at a time. She has no magic formula for making it happen, but as long as she has a voice she has the power to see it happen. One voice can start a war, so many voices speaking up for us can surely start a Worldwide movement to better the lives of ALL Companion Parrots, end Poaching and legalized trapping of Wild Parrots for profit.
The logo for our Rescue is ADOPT! DON'T SHOP! a universal phrase that says it all. It is spring and countless thousands of babies will hatch from eggs. Ten years from now where will they be? Will they be in loving homes? Will they be in Rescues? Their fourth homes? How many will have died from abuse, neglect at the hands of mankind?

Come visit me, Mr and Mrs Sky and BB Thrift, Little Angel, jesse & Queen Sweetie, Thank-you friends for BOTM.
