  Good Morning!
Hello Jaffa..... it's nice to meet you. I've never met another Dusky Lory.

We make wonderful pets. I am very affectionate and I love to play. When I get tired I like to take naps on Mama's tummy or shoulder. I like to dance and chase balls. I think your mom will have a wonderful time with you! Sending you lots of love.

Come visit me, Shami, Pip, Caillou & Isaac.

  Hello Patu-paiarehu
I hope you have had a good weekend. Mama continues to be busy but I've finally tied her to the computer in an effort to write to all my friends. What a bird has to do to get things done. *sigh*
Yesterday we got some much needed rain, not much, but it was better than nothing. It washed away some of the pollen that the ponderosa trees have been sending out in yellowish/green clouds. Everything looked so nice after the rain.
In the evening, shortly before going to bed, I begged Mama to play with me. She held my stick up for me and I flew across the room to her with either one of my boats or my spoon in tow. Right before I'd land on the stick I'd drop the toy and it made a wonderful sound as it hit the floor. Then Mama would send me back across the room and I'd fly back with another item. After I was all done with the flying, Mama held me upside down and swung me by my feet and tried to grab the toys I'd dropped on the floor. Sometimes I'll even say, "wheee, ooooo... " when being swung like that. It was greyt fun.
I spent a little time in the aviary today, but have mostly been calmly sitting in my cage eating popcorn or perching with one foot up on Mama's knee.
I hope you have a greyt week. Tossing Spoon at your vote button.

  Hello Patu-paiarehu
Thanks for flying by. I've not been on here much lately and I have been champing at the bit to getting back to blogging more. I've been told this is the week to write so here I am. I sure hope I don't get so behind again. I've missed my friends soooo much.

It seems Spring has finally sprung. The last few days have been so warm. Pringle and I are looking forward to spending a lot of time outside in the aviary. Just last week some days barely went above 40 degrees F. This morning we went on a long walk. We didn't take the normal route so it was pretty exciting to see new things. I tried my quail sound successfully. It's one saved for outdoors only. None answered me though. We passed by several houses where there were big dogs. They barked excitedly as we passed and I barked back at them. At one point I tried barking like them. I had only ever barked like our small yappy things we have here. I also made my peacock sound which sounds like a very sick one. Then I'd proclaim, "It's a cat," and when corrected as to which animal it was, come up with a much improved sound. Pringle, of course, just sat on the bottom of her carrier or on the perch, all prim and proper and looked around. I think she's pretty boring but even I have to admit she can be cute at times.

I hope you have a great week and hope I can be back before long.

Calling like a peacock till your vote button falls off.

  Hello Kiwi and Maori
I saw your names and had to come by right away. Then I saw that you are Kakariki's and got sooo excited. Mama lived in NZ when she was a kid and used to see wild Kakariki's when she went to school. She's been keeping her eye open for any on the channel.
I hope you come and visit me.

The license is a bit costly, maybe in time or maybe just admire them at the store and raise a bit of something else. I am sure it is a lovely lamp, we have some sunlight bulbs in a floor lamp but we need to put some in the other light fixtures. Well I hope you are having a great morning, going to post a card to your Mum, better late than never, right.xoxoxoxo

  Hi again from Monty
To get those yummy roses, I whisper in Mums ear "oooh pretty, ooooh pretty, I smells it". Mum lets me smell them. I then ask her "Monty haves it pretty flowers peas". That one always gets me a rose.

Come visit me, Monty.

  Hi from Monty
Hi Kiwi & Maori, Mums been a bit too busy lately for me to visit here too. Are those your babies?
Look Mum they "gots no feathers". Mum thinks its a bit hard to call them cute at the moment. Mums just incubated some chicken eggs. She let me listen to them in the shells and watch them hatch. When I told her "Wants one", she said not yet, they're too small.
"But I Wants One, peeease". Now I have to wait until they get bigger. She's got some duck eggs in the incubatorat the moment, I get to see them when Mum candles them. They won't answer me when I say Hello, and they don't tap back when I tap on the shell with my toe nails.

Come visit me, Monty.

  Kiwi & Maori,
Oh, my gosh!! CONGRATULATIONS!!! Two babies.....Baby Tiki and Patu-paiarehe, you two are so little. Mom is always curious about the names.....how did she come up with Baby Tiki and Patu-paiarehe? When were they hatched? Can't wait to see you two grow! Can your mum tell the two of you apart....is one baby bigger than the other? I know your mom must be so proud~ Love ya, Pico & Cindy

Hello Kiwi & Maori! I hear that somebirdies are going to be new parronts? Is it true that little baby birdies are on their way? I know it's your first clutch so I've got my wings crossed for a successful hatch. Tell your mommy to take some pics of the eggs. I bet even those little eggs are so cute! Mom wishes she had pics of me when I was just an egg, or when I just hatched. Keep me posted!

Hello! You must be about the same size as me. I'm about the size of a ring-neck actually. Would love to see you reaching out with your long legs :) Yes, Suzie is a great talker but so am I! She's just louder than me :) Have a great day!

Hello again, Mum hopes you'll see Kirby's wild cousins someday. She wants them to make a comeback :) She also has a question about you two. What size are you? We don't know much about Kakariki but it sounds like you may be small since that's what your name means? Maybe Kirby's size? Here's our vote for you. Have great day!

  Hi from Kirby
Welcome to BC. I'm an Australian bird, a Superb parrot (they call us barraband's here), so we're from the same general area of the globe :) But I hatched in California and then mum moved us to Oregon. I live with Suzie, an African grey. It's very nice to see you here on BC, you are very beautiful :) Here's my vote for you. Love, Kirby

  Hi Kiwi & Maori,
Well, you're the first "Red crowned Kakariki Parrots" I've met.......and fine looking I have to admit! Welcome to Bird Channel - I'm a friend of Lori & Smeagols who told me about you two. Mom said she's going to have to read up about you two so she'll know something about you. I want to know how you got your name, Kiwi....I read about Maori which means small parrot. Are you two about the size of a parakeet? Will you get any bigger? What about talking? Can't wait to get to know you two better ~ Hope you two had a fun weekend! Love ya, Pico

I'd first like to make a correction to my name. It's actually Majesty. My mom was still crying from the death of her other bird,Mercury. He was a cockatiel. My mom didn't see Plum Headed Parakeet so she put Bourke's Parakeet. But she found Plum Parakeet today, so she changed it. Thanks for the heads up. I'm leaving you a vote and adding you to my Aviary.

Come visit me, Majesty & Cinderella.

If my Mum was able to have a Kakariki, she wouldn't have me, so just as well she needs to have a permit. Here on the islands around the Chatham Islands, we also have the yellow crowned Kakariki. Monty

  Welcome from Caymus...
Hi Kiwi & Maori, and welcome to the birdchannel. Lori & Smeagol told me about you two so I just had to stop by for a look. Silly mommy thought the only Parrot in New Zealand was te Kea, and here to find out...there are actually four different kinds including one that is flightless! This has been a very educational day for mom, especially since her dream vacation is to New Zealand to visit the Waitomo caves and of course daddy to go to the wine country there. Now mom knows even more about those lovely islands thanks to you! Oh, and I do the chicken scratch dance too...but only on a papertowel on top of a pillow. It looks like I'm digging for something. So will you ever be tame enought to let mom touch you, or are you mainly kept in a avaiary? Hey, you're safe from predators and well taken care of so that's all that counts! Leaving you guys a big vote and a hug...can't wait to hear more about you!
