  HI SOCRATES!
Just browsing along & came across your blog. I noticed 1) You are quite a good-looking dusky conure and 2) you live in Staten Island just like we do. Speaking of seeds stuck together, mom's been giving us these birdie cake treats which she mixes in with a bucket filled with millet, and we are really loving it!

I notice you haven't been on BC for a while but I figure you'll get an e-mail notifying you of this msg. Would be great to hear from you!

Love,
Treasure, Lily & family

P.S. Did you know there's a bird club in Staten Island? It meets every 3rd Thursday at the Blue Heron Park Center.

P.S.

Come visit me, Monique, Treasure, Lily : Thanking all of voting me BOTW!, Eloise, Simon, Mojo, Quentin & Bungee.

The one mom got pics of, was pretty big around 2 1/2 foot to 3 foot. It's been so hot here that we're all staying in the AC.Here's a V4U, talk to ya later.Gunner

  Hey Socrates!
How are you? It's a busy week for me, cause I'm making all kinds of new friends, everyone coming to congratulate me, and I want to thank all of them! So lots of typing for mommy, and my voice is getting hoarse from dictating! I wish I could type, but my toes don't do so well on the keys, it takes me forever, plus I can't resist trying to pop the keys off the keyboard with my beak. So mommy said she'll take care of typing for me. :) Talk to you later, and here's a v4u. Speedy

Come visit me, Lester, King Piper the Brave - R.I.P my little friend..., Speedy, Jellybean the Gypsy & Sapphire - R.I.P., my little friend. I miss you..

  Hey Socrates!
Hey there! How was your weekend? I had a great time camping! We rented this camp, but it had water and electricity, so mommy said it was her idea of camping, not daddy's. But I got to go outside and play in the trees (with my harness on, of course) and hang out with my cousins (the human ones) and eat all their food with them. But since I was in an unfamiliar environment, I acted like I was scared so mommy would hold me the whole weekend. :) I kind of was scared a little by the 4-wheelers, so mommy protected me, but I had so much fun that I got SO tired and couldn't keep my eyes open. I slept the whole 3 hr drive home! I'll tell you more adventures later, especially the adventure with the dog! See you! V4u. Speedy

  Hi Socrates:
You look a little bit like me. I am a Hahns Mccaw and just thought I would fly by and welcome you to the BC.
Hope you will find the time in your busy schedule to do the same for me. Here is my vote.

Pecks galore,

Sweet Pea

Come visit me, Sweet Pea.

  Hi Socrates
So nice to meet you. Welcome to BC. I'm an orange wing Amazon, & we're not sure of my age. My Doc told my mom that the band on my leg tells where I came in to this country & that those places were closed down 23 years ago, so I have to be at least that old. She said I could be a lot older. There's no way to tell for sure. Stop by & say hello sometime. I love making new friends. Here's a vote for you today.

Come visit me, Fred & Sunshine Birdie.

  Hey Socrates!
Woo hoo! I'm your first vote! Welcome to the BC. It's a great place to meet other birdies and make friends. Come say hi when you can, and we'll chat. In the meantime, here's a vote for you, from your new friend, Speedy!

Come visit me, Lester, King Piper the Brave - R.I.P my little friend..., Speedy, Jellybean the Gypsy & Sapphire - R.I.P., my little friend. I miss you..
