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! My name is Miranda -Justice for Ozzi-ty 4 botd 5/13/16

I am a Congo African Grey from Newton, NJ.

The African Queen (I am given the hatchday of Katherine Hepburn because of my nickname)

16 years old   F

Congo African Grey

Cashews! Almonds! Peanuts!

On Mom or mostly Dad's shoulder for unlimited scritching (or the top of my cage or on the outside perch, my veranda!

NO sticks! Give me your arm/hand--I will growl and bark at the stick! Birdicures? I growl like a rotweiler!

Scritches, and dad helps maintain those nasty pin feathers.

I like to munch on crushed ice and will try to take the largest chunk from your beverage! Lately, I enjoy hiding under the cages and attacking mom's crocs..

Scritches--hone- y, don't stop!.

  Heya, Miss Miranda!
Thanks for the congratulations on BOTD! Can't believe it, but wow, having two days to celebrate is pretty special. And bring the flock over to celebrate at the Dragon Cave! Lizzie has all kinds of food, and some of that Hatchday Cake, too! There are a couple birdies who are still there from yesterday, I think.

Wing hugs coming your way!
Your buddy,

  A belated congrats for BOTD yesterday-from Ms LaLo
Today is Ms Chyna's Milonga Derby Day, and we wish you and all our other birdie riders a clean safe race! While we would all like to win, winning is not everything, we already feel like winners just to be allowed to participate with such an illustrious field of ponies and friends!

Thanks for all the B-day cards and e-cards so many of you have sent our daddy for his special day today! He feels so thankful to be alive and still have so many caring friends, Have a great Saturday, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya all tomorrow...

  Hi Miranda
I do remember Boomer; such a handsome fella. Looks a lot like me!!

I am late blogging today, because when I first tried BC was very slow and sticky, or is that stinky? Anyway Mom and I went back to my room to read for a while, and hopefully it is all better now.

Mom continues to think about turning on the radio in Gloria, even though she knows very well it isn't in there. Just shows what creatures of habit those humans are. Speaking of habits I lost her to Becky for their session at the gym and zumba this morning, and she is back up to 40 minutes of zumba. Soon she figures to manage the whole hour. Phooey!

I had a very nice sunbath today, and I absolutely didn't give Mom grief at all about getting into my carrier. It was nice and warm out with a temp of about 76, although it is nearly 80 now. Oh! Ms Gardenia Tree has a bloom! It smelled wonderful. So there we were having a nice time, and Mom had just given me my nutriberry, when we heard a heart chilling scream up in the sky! It was a red tailed hawk being harassed by crows! Mom was sure he would not be interested in me with those guys dive bombing him, but she didn't want me to be scared, so we went inside. I had gotten my required 30 minutes anyway and finished my nutriberry indoors.

Don't forget the Milonga Derby is tomorrow night. It is going to be amazing, and it very well might be the last one ever so don't miss it!!

  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,
Grey Bird

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!

Thanks for voting for me!

Grey Bird

  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!)

Thank you so much for voting for me!

Hugs,
Grey Bird

Hi Everybirdie. Tonight we are going to make a little forager/shredder toy. You will need,

- A treat cup
- A palm flower
- Beads
- Cupcake papers
- Finger traps
- Crinkle paper
- Safe stringing material

Take your string and tie a knot at the end. String a few beads on, and then take a treat cup, poke a hole in the bottom, and string that one. Fill the cup with crinkle paper and treats, and then take the palm flower, poke a hole in the center, and string it on top of the treat cup. Take a few cupcake papers, poke holes in the centers, and cut the sides. String those on, then string on 3 finger traps, a few beads, and tie a loop on the top.

There is a picture in my gallery.
