My former owner spotted Mom with Elvis, the Blue Fronted Amazon(perched on shoulder)visiti- ng the local vet. My former owner felt I needed a greater quality of life (like Elvis) and since she is a dog breeder(larger dogs, Borzis)she felt I was not safe amongst them. One of her Borzis killed my predecessor. I was purchased as a replacement, however that dad and I did not hit it off. My mom now took me into this flock hoping I would bond with this dad and I did!.

  Hi Miranda!
Hi Everybirdie! Tonight we will be making a shreddable toy that looks like a person. You will need,

- A wiffle ball
- Cupcake papers
- Beads
- 2 bigger wood beads
- Mini wood blocks
- Paper straws
- A treat cup
- 3 paper loaf cups
- Safe stringing material

Start by taking a pretty long piece of string, and tying a loop at the top. String on a bead, and then take 5-6 cupcake papers and cut the sides into strips, and then string those on like you would for a puff, one facing down, one facing up, and so on. Now string on the wiffle ball, and then a longer or bigger bead. Now you are going to take a new piece of string, and tie it onto your first piece under the big bead you just added. Once you tie that on, you should have two pieces hanging down on either side of the original piece. On both strands, you are going to string on a mini block, and then half of a paper straw. Then knot the ends on both sides. Now going back to the original string, take a treat cup and poke a hole in the bottom, then string it on facing down. Now take your 3 loaf cups, and poke holes in the bottom of them. String one on facing down, then string on a bead, then another loaf cup, then another bead, then the last loaf cup. Now string on 2-3 beads, and then take another new piece of string and tie it on the original, just like last time. You will want the two pieces hanging down so that they are longer. On each strand, string on a single big bead, and then knot the bottoms. Now string one more bead on the original strand, and knot the bottom. You're done!

Mom just adores this toy, she says it is one of her favorites that she has made. There is a picture in my gallery!

Thank you so much for voting for me! Just one more night until I will hopefully be in the castle! I'll see you tomorrow night. (:

Hugs,

Hi Everybirdie! Tonight we will be making a shredder toy that looks like a cupcake. You will need,

- A treat cup
- Cupcake papers
- Beads
- Safe stringing material

Start by taking your string and knotting the bottom. Take your treat cup, poke a hole in the bottom, and string that on facing up. Now take beads, and string them on until you have beads almost to the top of the cup. Take your cupcake papers, and cut the sides into strips and poke holes in the middle. Now we are going to be making a puff on top. String on a paper facing down, then one facing up, then one facing down, and so on until you have a puff that looks like frosting. Now take some beads, string them on, and top it off with a bigger red bead. Tie a loop, and you're done!

When mom starting making this toy tonight, it was supposed to turn out like a bowl of ice cream. But she thought it looked a lot more like a cupcake and left it that way. There is a picture in my gallery!

  Hi Miranda!
Hi Everybirdie! I am so sorry for not blogging yesterday. Mom had a very bad headache and couldn't keep her eyes open. But, I am happy to report that when she woke up this morning she felt just fine! To make up for not blogging last night, we will be making two toys tonight. For the first toy you will need,

- Cupcake papers (for small/medium birds) or mini cupcake papers (for extra small birds) or coffee filters (for large birds)
- Beads
- Safe stringing material

Take your string and tie a knot at the bottom. String on a bead, and take 3-4 cupcake papers or coffee filters, poke holes in the center, and string them on. String on another bead, and then more papers. Keep stringing on the beads and papers until it reaches your desired size. Then finish off by stringing a bead on top, and tying a loop.

For the next toy you will need,

- Wood (what ever size and type is right for your bird)
- Beads
- Safe stringing material
- OPTIONAL: a bell

Take your string and tie a knot at the bottom. If you are using a bell, tie the knot on the bell. String on a piece of wood, then a bead, then another piece of wood, then another bead, and so on until it reaches the desired size. Finished it off by adding a bead to the top and tying a loop.

Both of these are very simple, but fun to play with! The wooden toy was made for Paris using balsa, and the cupcake paper toy will be for one of the conures. There are pictures of both toys in my gallery. (Mom apologizes for the hideous colors of the cupcake paper toy. She had no pretty colors!)

  Hi Miranda!
Hi Everybirdie! Tonight's toy isn't pretty, and very simple, but so much fun to shred! You will need,

- 3 paper bags
- Crinkle paper OR tissue paper
- Safe stringing material
- Treats

Take your first paper bag and open it. Take another paper bag, and without opening it, put it in the first one. When it is in, you can stick your hand in and open it up. When that one is opened, take one more closed one and stick it inside the others, and then open that one too. Stuff the bags with crinkle paper or tissue paper, and throw a treat or two in it. Close the bags, and fold over the tops. Take a piece of rope, make a loop, and then make a hole near the top of the bag (that goes through the front and folded over part), and string the loop through the hole.

I know this toy isn't the prettiest or most amazing, but Jester and I just love them! And they are so easy to make, and mom uses the hanging loops over and over again. LOL. Picture in my gallery!

Thanks for voting for me!

  Hi Miranda!
Hi Everybirdie! Today mom went out to the pet store to pick up some pellets, and not only did she buy pellets, but she came home with TWO little BABY CHICKENS. They are super fuzzy and she thinks they are adorable. You can go see a picture of them on their page (The Peepers). They don't have names yet, mom is still thinking about them. They are very loud, they keep PEEP, PEEP, PEEPING. Mom thinks I will pick up the peeping noise by the end of the week, LOL. Anyway, for tonight's toy you will need,

- A wooden base (one that has 3 holes)
- Square wooden blocks
- Wooden slats
- Beads
- Paper treat cups
- Finger traps
- Safe stringing material

Take a piece of rope and tie a loop on it. String a bead on under the loop, and then string the rest of the rope through the middle hole on the wooden base. Add another bead, and knot it. Take another piece of rope, tie a knot, string on a bead, and the string the rest of the rope through one of the holes on the ends. On the piece that is hanging down, string on a wooden block, a wooden slat, and another wooden block. Take a treat cup, poke a hole in the center, and string it on facing down. Take a finger trap, a string that on through one opening all the way to the other. Take another treat cup, and string that on. Then string on another wooden block, and a wooden slat. Then tie it off. Then repeat that process through on the other end hole.

Jester is going to enjoy this one. Picture in my gallery!

  Hi Miranda and Cu!
Hi Everybirdie! Today we will be making a paper plate fan toy. You will need,

-6 paper plates (full size for big birds, small size for smaller birds)
-Bird safe stringing material (we use poly rope)
- Mini bagels OR wood blocks OR large beads

Take your string and tie a knot at the bottom. Poke holes in the bottom of all of your paper plates. String one of the paper plates on the rope, and then string on your wood block, large bead, or if you are using mini bagels, string on three of them. Then put another plate, then another block/bead/3bagels, and so on. When you string on the last plate, tie a knot. Now, bunch the plates together at the top, and poke a hole through the tops. String a new piece of rope through the holes on all 6 plates, and then knot it really tight. Then make your hanging loop, and you're done!

I really enjoy these! They are fun to shred apart. There is a picture of one made with small plates in my gallery.

Thank you for voting!

Grey Bird

  Hi Miranda and Cu!
Hi Everybirdie! I hope you had a nice day. I'm glad that you guys like my theme. I know that I sure do love toys! Make sure to let us know if your parronts try any of the toys out, and how you like them! Tonight I am going to share with you how to make a toilet paper tube wreath. You will need,

-7 toilet paper tubes (smaller birds) OR paper towel tubes (bigger birds)
-Bird safe stringing material (we use poly rope)
-Crinkle Paper

Take your tubes and fold them in half. Poke a holes through them, and put all of them on your rope. Make sure the openings are all facing out, and tie the rope closed so that the tubes form a circle. Make sure that it is tight! Once the rope is tied, make a hanging loop. Now, stuff the open ends with crinkle paper, and stuff some through the hole in the middle of the circle too!

Mom has made me one of these out of paper towel rolls once, and it was fun! She made a little one with a wrapping paper tube cut down into TP roll size tonight, and she thinks that one of the conures will enjoy it! There is a picture of the little one in my gallery.

Thanks for your vote!

  Wednesday Greetings, My Love!
Today Mom is getting me an earlier start on my blogs. It's about time this bird thinks!

I have a perfect story to tell you about this NEW toy I've been enjoying lately. I know you & your flock would greytly appreciate it. It's all wood pieces that are so BRIGHTLY colored. Mom has had it out on my gym when I'm inside my cage, then she hangs it just below the gym, hooked to the side so I can go look at it, which I do. I've been studying it for about 3 months now. Mom had me out yesterday & was about to hook it to the side again but stopped. She asked me as I was approaching the opened "balcony" door, "Sammy, would you like to investigate this nice wood toy today? I can put it right here at your balcony so you can chew it, if you're brave enough." Hmph. IF I'm brave enough? Sheesh. What an African Grey has to go through to be thorough in his investigation techniques. Well, Mom hangs the toy just inside my cage at the balcony exit where I love to be. I was able to swing that toy partially onto the balcony & I had a lovely time chewing & making toothpicks out of all those colors.

Mom was busy making & packing boxes (one of them is coming your way, so keep you eyes peeled!) while I worked on this new brightly colored toy. I guess it's because I have such light colored facial feather around my beak, but the next time Mom looks at me, I look like I've be "pyschodelified" I had colors all OVER my beak & nares, streaks of colors that almost looked like I was painted in "war paint"! Mom wanted to help me get it off with a paper towel but I consider those things EVIL! That's what Mom will dry my cage off with & I have to run around trying to rip those things to shreds. NO WAY am I allowing THAT to be rubbed on my face! She must be a crazy Momma to think I'd go for THAT!

Mom then decided I was so cute she had to take a picture! WHAT?
Another deadly enemy she tries to subject me to??!! No way was I going to have anything to do with that so every time she pointed the camera at me, I'd turn my back to her. She took about 20 pictures but they're all of my back & my turned head. No pictures to show I have colored myself into punk fashion. Mom just laughed at me & told me I won, she wouldn't bother me anymore, just enjoy myself with my new toy. Which I did by the way & had a marvelous day to boot!

I hope I have another marvelous day & hope you do, too. Big hugs to all, SamIAm

  Sweet Miranda, My Dear....
....I have our Valentine in my gallery waiting for you to pick it up & your good Momma's convenience. I will email her a big one for her computer, too. I do hope you like because I mean it with all my heart!

Hope you & your flock will fly over to my page for some cake & ale & some funny pirate limericks. Nothing too fowl (arrrr...) nor too obscene (which cuts into the character of a true pirate but there are rules & I don't want my good Momma to be kicked off the BC)

Today, I'm 11 yrs. old! WoooHooo!

In real life, I'm sitting on my play gym investigating some horrid foot toys that I know where trying to sneak up on me in the dark & hurt me. Each one is being smartly bit, leaving a mark, that lets me know I've killed it. They had it coming, really they did!

  Avast There, Good Matey....
I’ve come by to invite you to my 11th Hatchday Pirate Party over on me page. There ye will find in the “How I met my owner” section of my profile some limericks that I’ve brought back from the far corners of the world to share with you! If ye feel compelled to write some words of yer own on my page, please try to keep it clean & with the rules of this good BC in mind. Garrr….there were many that I couldn’t share with ye because of it being a bit risqué . It wouldn’t be much of a “pirate” limerick without such things but pillaging & dismemberment will have to satisfy ye!

Bring a good appetite & be prepared for some ale & rum, lads & lassies! ’Tis a fair day fer turnin’ 11! (aye-aye). See ye real soon! Sam bows & waves with his pirate hat “goodbye”.

  Love that new picture, Lovely!
...Just absolutely lovely, sweet Miss Miranda. I'm glad you enjoyed the Milonga. I really like those & of late, Mom has been stopping everything making a big deal that she MUST be there or be square! Since she's not in the living room to argue with her mate as to what to watch of the television, he leaves her alone about doing some time on the Milonga parties! Weee! I still need WEEKS to catchup with everyone!

I have a special valentine I'll bee sending you soon. It's okay to share it with your flockily. Mom made it as a probable wedding favor to hold honey for the guests to take home with them. Some are going to be from Australia so some natural honey from where Shanna (her daughter who's getting married in the summer of this year) is from seemed like a nice idea for them to enjoy while in the States. But alas, it seems this wedding is going to have lots of children at it & so Shanna feared an all out "honey fight" with the kids might would happen since there seems to be a real "prankster" in the group. So she nixed Mom's idea. Mom thought she might use it for something else but I've snagged it for myself!! Heehee! She's looking for it all over the place & can't remember what she did with it. That's because I TOOK it! See, there's still "pirate bird" in me!! It just doesn't go away so easily!

Well, you have a "sweet" evening & I'm going to snag your pretty picture for myself!! Hugs to all, SamIAm

  Hello, My Dear One!
Happy Thanksgiving!

Well, it was mostly a Happy Thanksgiving at our house. But previously, and the reason I haven’t been around lately, is because I’ve been flying “sorties” after an invasion of a reptile who decided to overwinter in our home!! The weather had turned warm again after a few mornings of frosty teases that colder months were just around the corner. Mom & her mate were coming home with some groceries when, as they opened their door with arms full of yummy goodness, the opportunistic skink ran inside the house!! OH!! Did I tell you they happen to be poisonous? Not so much to humans & us birds but to those very dim witted cats, they are.

Every time Mom’s mate has left the house, Mom has opened up my cage & told me, “Sam, I have an important mission for you. We’ve been invaded! Here’s his picture.” She shows me this picture of an “Eastern Blue Tailed Skink”. Then she says, “Sam, I want you to fly all around the house looking for this…” she points to the skink picture. “If you find him, I want you to squawk as loud as you can & I’ll come running! I have a “lizard cage” because we don’t want to kill him. We want to rescue him & get him outside so he can go hibernate with his family.” Mom says all creatures have a place in this world & this reptile happens to be a ‘good guy’. They like to dine on fairly large insects like cicadas, grasshoppers, Japanese & pine beetles, and most of all….cockroaches!

So, I have flown many sorties & I have found Mr. Skink. The problem is that Mom’s ‘running’ is slower than a snail on valium. By the time she’d get there, said skink had already took off for other destinations. I would whistle, scream, yell, “THERE HE IS, MOM! HURRY!” When the lizard would run away, I told her, “THERE HE GOES!!” to let her know she had missed him AGAIN! I am flying all over the house searching for him & I have been really good about going to my “station” to use the bathroom. Mom has been giving me cinnamon apple bits as rewards for being a good bird & coming back to give her reports on the where abouts of Mr. Skink. I can tell you, I’ve had some great exercise these past few weeks.

We still haven’t located where Mr. Skink has scurried off to lately, but Mom cringes at the thought of finding him dead & withered up years from now. She also worries about those cats finding him first then having to take them to the vet after devouring Mr. Skink. No, they never learn. They’ve done it before & they would certainly do it again. Especially, finding him INSIDE the house where he can’t dart down one of his tunnels that they like to dig.

This is Capt. Sam of Air Command & Skink Rescue hoping you have had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I know I will locate that rascally skink once again but time will tell if Mom will be able to move fast enough to rescue him! Over & Out with hugs for all, SamIAm

..... Let's hope this isn't something they are foreseeing needing in the near future considering the conflicts of this crazy world. It scared the bajeebees out of Mom & her mate & it is said it has scared wild turkeys so badly that they died of fright!! I think they need to check along I81. There are probably a few humans scared to death there also!

Well, hope you're having a wonderful day! I sure am, sitting with Mom as she takes my dictation. As it should be, finally!

  Hey There, Miss Miranda!
Yay! Mom's home! She & her mate traveled through the mountains from Aunt Arlene's & saw so much scenery! The mountains were blanketed with amazing color! There were many lovely trees & where the trees stopped, emerald green pastures rolled along with cattle & horses grazing as if they were painted in place. There were modest homes with smoke billowing from their chimneys where someone was making it toasty warm inside. I'd even bet there were some apple pies baking in there!

Once Mom had crossed over the West Virginia/Virginia border, the interstate hung on the east side of this enormous mountain they were crossing. Most of the time, the traffic had been light but at this one moment, things became bottle necked & they were in the midst of large semi-trucks & the occasional slow moving cars. As they were passing some big-rigs, this H.U.G.E. noise erupted & literally drowned out the stereo inside their car, the roar of the big-rigs, & it shook the car, the big rigs & the mountain itself!!! It was so loud that it made Mom cringe tightly, shutting her eyes, balling up her fists, bracing for an impact of some sort. Her mate was driving & he actually thought they were being run over by one of the big rigs! But they were both wrong. It happened to be an F18 flying very low....well, over & around THIS mountain it was low, but looking down into the valley below, it was very very high! It rattled everything including the truckers, the car drivers, & most likely any living thing that had been in a 1 mile vicinity of this jet's trail.

Mom recognized the sound because she was raised in Pensacola, Florida where the Blue Angels are based. There is also a Naval/Marine school for jet pilots there along with training of Navy Seals. Hearing jets has been with her since she was in diapers. But that's the thing. They are on you so fast, there's no time to speak, there's no time to react, by the time the sound hit Mom & the caravan of southbound cars & trucks moving on this interstate, the jet was way ahead of the sound. It was as if it was unattached with the sound it was making. In other words, it was slightly traveling faster than sound, but not so fast that it made a sonic BOOM. Mom & her mate were so rattled that they got off at the next exit to take an early lunch & collect their wits that had just been scared out of them!

They weren't the only ones either. Some of the truckers & car drivers took a reprieve from the I81 southbound to shake off the shakes of what just happened. It was certainly a shaky affair because Mom was shaking even about 15 minutes at the restaurant. She was spilling her drink & it had a lid & straw on the top of it! Heehee! That Mom!

Mom googled the area & jets & has found out that the "Uppity Ups" have increased the jets making runs through the mountains of eastern West Virginia & western Virginia from 70 runs to over 2500 fly overs using the mountains as an obstacle course. Let's hope this is

  Hey There, Miranda!
I'm BAAACK!!! Mom's computer has been at the computer hospital getting a work over. She picked up a trojan from the internet (they KNEW her weakness....bridal dresses!) Anyway, she's learned a hard lesson & her computer has been down at the Geek Squad shop for all of this week! I have been totally "pouty" about the whole ordeal but it did give me a lot more "Mom time"!!

It is REALLY raining a lot here for an area that has spent all of the summer in a severe drought! Mom's been praying for rain for all the farmers here in the south but still a lot of fields are just scorched corn & other crops as well. It's not a case of "too little too late" but "monsoon too late!" Now, Mom & her area is under a flood watch warning until MONDAY. And that warning was issued either yesterday (Thursday 10/1) or Wednesday (Sept.30) It is for sure a time of happiness for the scruffy birds & other wildlife whose natural water sources have receded so much that boat ramps & such have been closed for quite a few months now. I'm sure I heard some splash dancing outside where the animals have been partying in celebration for the moisture!

Well, there's many birds I want to say my "hey there's & hi there's to" before Mom & her mate go off to eat out in celebration of her mate's birthday. Mom made him a chocolate pound cake yesterday, his REAL birthday. But he had to work & so they are doing the eat out thing tonight.

Hope all are well at your nest! Hugs to all, SamIAm

....Country Fair Milonga. Sam confesses his favorite Milongas are the Country Fairs because he & Miranda can have some fun & cheer on their friends and just because he can be with her more during this time. He always has such a very good time when they are together. However, tonight the invasion of those cotton pickin' ?? truly unnerved him. They practiced that song & no ?? showed up. There were no ?? on the page where his Mom C/P the lyrics. There were no ?? when she proof read the blog to post to the page. But once the blog was posted, BAM!! ??? were everywhere questioning everything sung! Questioning everything played. Questions were flying around everywhere!! It was totally unnerving. Had there not been still guests at the Milonga, I would have grabbed you by the wing & we would have run away!! Thank goodness the Scruffy Birds help me swat as many as we could! I don't know if any escaped or not. I hope they don't follow me to your page....or my page either!! Holy smokes! I just thought of that! What if they go following me around?? See!! There's two of them right there! Miranda smiles & gives Sam a reassuring hug. Thanks, Miranda. You always make me feel better. I better say good night. Sam gives Miranda a slow soft peck on her beak. He squeezes her one last time and waves his good bye.

  Morning Beautiful Miranda & Cu-Bird, from Ms LaLo
We really enjoyed all the football games yesterday but the Bears lost big time and it don't get any easier, they play Sugar's Sea Hawks this coming weekend! The Packers played very well, but the Hawks had their chances to win! One game does not a season make, we still love to watch football, I think LaLo likes commercials and half time the best, then she gets more attention, LOL! Have a great Monday dear BC friends, and give our love to all in your sweet home, CYA tomorrow...

Monday love from Ms LaLo Lee & our Dallas family

  Oh My....I Can't See Any Of Your Previous Blogs.
...or those who have blogged to you. Mom needs that to make sure her correspondence to you is not repetitive.

Mom has made a new avatar of me playing guitar & you dancing in the sand with a hula skirt & chest covering. I don't understand why she does that....birds do not have utters so they needn't worry of such things but there you have it. She's a little kooky that way.

Mom found some awesome swan paddle boat images & hopes to have our picture together done soon.

Oh, yes, by the way, Mom is going to Parrot Palooza this year. She really needs a vacation. She's hardly here, either, so if you are missing her, so am I!! Tomorrow, we are having a special day together & then the Milonga. I hope to see you there, too!

Hugs to all,
SamIAm

  Congratulations
on your 2 day celebration, Miranda! We all hope you had a good day in the castle, even though it was kind of quiet here at BC today. (Mom couldn't sign on earlier, and apparently there were technical difficulties.) Anyway, nothing like stretching out a hatchday into a 2 day fete! Say hi to the flock for us!

  HI MIRANDA!!!
Just so nice to see one of our other flock friends being BOTd..Oh yes your sisters and ours are doing just wonderful..Baby Girl sure has become a real cutie..So Moggie is still being Moggie..The weather has certainly been beautiful until today.Guess it was to soon for all the warm temps...Mom was rushed to the hospital 2 weeks ago with Acute Deep Vein Thrombosis in her left leg...The blood clot was traveling up past her groin and actually very close to the main artery...The Cardiovascular Doctor Surgeon had to put a filter in and Mom will have to go back for more surgery in June..They are going to put a stent in where the vein is being blocked by an artery laying on top of it...So Dad is taking care of both Mom & the flock...Hope you are enjoying your day...Many birdie wing hugs to you and your flock...Love, Sam and the Dingmans Ferry Flock. :o)
