My friend didn't have the time or patience to care for her properly- she was kind to him but was very time poor (and baby Jack was demanding).I had wanted him from the first time i laid eyes on him so I adopted him- it was love at first sight..

  Hi Jack
Boo Boo uses a lint brush on Cori to brush off all the pieces of shredded paper stuck in Coris feathers before Cori hits the stage and begins her speech for the day.

all creatures gather into groups at some point in their lives making it harder for packs of prey to attack them, collective wisdom to make better decisions, or just a social time for mating. these groups have been given non-scientific names based on mans understanding or beliefs at the time they were named. many bits of folklore were once taken as fact and have since been proven to be false.ideas like sparrows spontaneously generated from horsehair and mud or that birds hibernate en masse at the bottom of oceans and lakes. don't forget that the general belief was that the earth was flat and what other explanation could explain where large groups of migrating birds were flying off over the oceans yet always returned each spring.
even before written language birds have inspired mans folklore, superstition and even religion.they are representatives of hope and despair, good luck and bad.

THANKYOU FOR YOUR VOTES

love Cori and Boo Boo(campaign manager

ps. we forgot to add from yesterday the sayings FREE AS A BIRD: not true as birds are prisoners of the land they fly over and the air they fly through .rules imposed by nature
BIRD BRAIN: to explain someone who is not too bright. not true as we all know how very intelligent birds are (thanks Spot for reminding us)

  HI JACK
Boo Boo holds up her wings before Cori gives her talk. she implores every birdie to please not take pictures of Cori using any type of flash because bright lights scare Cori.
The United Nations has declared today as World Wildlife Day, coinciding with the signing of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) in Washington, D.C. on March 3, 1973.
World Wildlife Day provides a strong opportunity for the global conservation community to speak with a unified voice and declare that there is no excuse for the indiscriminate killing, selling, or captivity of wild animals.
march 3rd. todays topic WORDS FROM BIRDS:
1) BIRD IN THE HAND IS WORTH TWO IN THE BUSH: better to cherish what we have than to look longingly at things that are beyond our reach
2) LIKE WATER OFF OF A DUCKS BACK: Let everyday annoyances leave us as quickly as water slides off the well oiled feathers of a duck
3) BIRDS OF A FEATHER FLOCK TOGETHER: most of the time time. even in winter when large gatherings of flocks of ducks and geese are visible most stay in groups of their own species.
4) EAGLE-EYED: self explanatory
5) EATS LIKE A BIRD: if you did you would be very obese since most birds consume up to 20 percent of their body weight daily
6) HAPPY AS A LARK: refers to the birds exuberant song flight. larks have bad days
when troubles come home to roost gong them 7) SOMETHING TO GROUSE ABOUT
8) MAD AS A LOON: loons aren't mad but their call sure sounds that way
9) SWAN SONG: a belief that the mute swan silent all its life gives out a single song just before it is about to die
10) WISE AS AN OWL: HOO are we to say they are not wise!

  Hi Jack
well we finally got hit with the winter storm last night. its not too bad so far and only about 3 inches. lets set our thought on spring today and think about songbirds The use of DNA by scientists has provided new food for thought to people who had assumed that most birds were faithful to their mates, if not for a lifetime, at least for a single breeding season.

It turns out that there is more hanky-panky going on in the back fields and woodlands of the country among birds than anyone could imagine. DNA studies of songbirds have shown it is a common practice among songbirds to copulate with birds other than their mates, thus producing broods of nestlings with mixed parentage.

Divorce is also common among birds, particularly in birds of prey. If a mated pair of hawks, for example, is not successful in producing a brood of youngsters, an avian divorce often arises and one or the other will seek another mate

the Smith’s Longspur is enough to make even Hugh Hefner blush.

Small like a sparrow, the Smith’s Longspur spends its summers in Alaska and Canada and its winters in the Midwest and the South, often congregating in open fields.

In terms of range, then, it’s a lot like some other species. What sets the Smith’s Longspur apart is its astonishing libido.

At the peak of the spring mating season, the typical Smith’s Longspur copulates more than 350 times a week. The females solicit these encounters, and the males cooperate roughly half the time. Otherwise the creatures are resting and refueling.

  Wow
I hope you had a wonderful hatchday, Jack, and that you also had fun in the castle with Queen Miss BB. Kisses are available for free at the KB, mom is donating a quarter a kiss to the wildlife center where she volunteers. She did that for all of us, except back then, it was 50c a kiss, because far fewer birds visited the booth. She also did it when our friend Puffin was there. I guess she will use any excuse to donate to the wildlife center! Hugs, Falco

Hah! Not only are you another year older, but you are wearing a crown again. Suits you, mate. Although you'll never keep it on if you keep hanging upside down like that!

Well, your heat wave made the news here. Apparently the Australian Open is going on, and the tennis players were not happy with the temps. One even fainted, and when he came to they asked who his opponent was and he said Snoopy! Guess he thought he was in a cartoon!

  Congratulations For Being BOTD!
Sam hurries in and bows to Queen Jack. Sam smiles but is all out of words because he is confused. The info says "female" but the name is "Jack"? Sam is afraid to speak in fear of insulting today's monarch & decides to perform his juggling act. He reaches into the inside pockets of his vest & brings out 3 baseballs and begins to throw them up, down, and around & just repeats this action. Soon, he raises his leg & begins catching & throwing one ball underneath & over keeping perfect alignment with the other balls. Sam opens wide his big pocket on the side of his vest & catches all 3 balls and then bows to the BOTD, Jack from Down Unda. Sam gives a salute & a wave as he hurries away before he's asked to speak to the King....uh...Queen um....Monarch!
