It surely has been a long time since I was last on here, but when I saw the email a few weeks ago about Toose getting BOTD, I had to make the time to get on here and thank everyone, it was just so sweet of everybirdie here! Things have been so busy and hectic and so much as happened in the time I have last been on here, but it is nice to see familiar faces still on here, such as your beautiful cockatiels...I hope all is well! left a vote

this one blue jay keeps hanging around. it calls to me and today i actually answered. mom doesn't want it getting too close. mom was reading and the blue jay snuck up and was quite close but when mom looked at it, it flew away. i think it is curious as to why i am in a cage.

HAPPY HUMPDAY

we haven't seen the snake around. of course that doesn't mean its not lurking nearby. usually outside birds will sound the alarm if they see anything.

while Cori was getting her bath today i was sitting in my cage minding my own business when a bluejay flys to a nearby tree and starts talking to me. mom quickly came back to the porch so the bluejay wouldn't land on my cage. the bluejay thought better of coming near me once it saw my mom who was covered in bugs and Cori who was soaking wet and busily chasing all the bugs off mom.

  Hello Pepper~
I hope you are having a great day! Everything is fine here at my nest. I'm having some playtime with mom and soon I will head off to the play cage for my apple.
We have lots of chores to get done today and I think mom is going over to the market to get a few things. It's only at the end of our driveway so she won't be gone long. Later on we will be getting some cooking done. My beans and grains for my mash are soaking and mom will cook those tonight. I am hoping that some corn bread will be on the menu too! A little corn bread to go with my mash sounds like an excellent idea to me!
I do hope you enjoy your day! Leaving a vote and a big hug!

  Hi Pepper
mom bought a new coconut shell and ordered raw hide strips from drs foster and smith catalog and built me a newer safer nest. i don't like it. i won't go near it and i won't make my baby sounds any more. its been hanging in my cage for a week and i want it out of there. of course mom always takes it out before i go to bed and if the parents leave the house for any reason in case i would somehow get tangled up in it while they aren't around.

  Hi Pepper
its been raining here for 24 hours. no meteor shower show for us to see. speaking of water... Add A Little Water To Make Your Yard Irresistible To Birds
Because many birds do not eat seeds, suet or sugar water, there is another way to draw them in from the natural cover for close-up viewing.
In various forms, water will attract the insect- and worm-eating birds that would not otherwise be drawn to your yard.

The simplest and least expensive way to provide water for birds is in a ceramic or metal birdbath mounted on a pedestal.
As long as the water is clean, and changed frequently, birds will respond. The presence of water, the third essential to bird life in a backyard habit, will attract birds that would not otherwise be seen. In spring and summer, when the neotropical species are in the North, birds such as flycatchers, wrens, robins, vireos, thrushes and even owls will readily come to water, but not to feeders.

A better solution may be to set up a birdbath with moving water that is pumped from one level to another. The sound and motion of water is a great attractant for birds and will draw them in from some distance to drink and bathe.
The ideal water area for birds is a recirculating, multi-tiered pool in which an electric pump moves the water to the uppermost level, which allows it to flow back to the lowest level, and then back again to the top. As long as there are many shallow areas, no more than a couple of inches deep, the birds will use all the levels of water as it flows from one to another. There have been times when as many as 13 American robins or 10 cedar waxwings have used such a bird bath at one time.

Water is not only essential to the survival of birds, but its presence in a backyard habitat will guarantee the attractions of a whole different spectrum of bird species.

i know those wild bunnies are very sweet and don't seem to mind sharing their food. today mom forgot to check for the bunnie and took the doggie out to pee. the bunny was sitting right there and the doggie ran over to the bunny and jumped at it. the bunny hopped a few feet away and the doggie did her business and came back in the house.

it didn't rain today and we had a sunny warm day today but we couldn't go outside for some sun because the neighbor was spraying something on his house. dad even went over and asked if he was spraying for ants and all the neighbor would say was no. so mom isn't taking any chances.

wow did we have the thunderstorms this morning. it rained all night long but early this morning it really poured and the lightening was hitting right in the yard. you would hear this giant crack and see a white light and then hear sizzling sounds. we kept having power surges but we never lost our power. that cats were hiding under the bed. when dad took the doggie out to pee the little bunny was on the front porch and dad chased it into the gardens so doggie wouldn't chase it. dad asked if we could bring the little bunny inside but mom said no the little bunny is happier in the yard eating moms flowers.

  Hi Pepper and Angel!
We're flying around thanking everybirdie who played NTT over the last couple of months. It has been a horribly busy summer at our flock - we moved to a different house on the other side of the city, the Cuddler has been busy with school, and she started a new job. The semester is over and the move is done so she has a couple weeks to breathe until it's time to get ready for school to start again!

Butterball adjusted just fine to the move. She and Apollo stay in the Feeder's room and he gives them lots of OUT time every day. He keeps a close eye on her so she hasn't been able to get into much trouble or chew on anything worthwhile. You should have seen the miniblinds in his old room; they were trashed and chewed beyond recognition!

Hope you both are having a greyt summer! Stop by and see us at NTT again!

Your friends,
Rico & Paulie at NTT

we don't know what we will do about Boo Boos nest. its a coconut shell that dad wired into a tiny easter basket. then mom fills the nest with alfalfa. the handle of the basket attaches to the top of the cage and Boo Boo swings in her basket when she jumps in it. she always sits in her basket every morning and makes baby sounds for dad who then gives her some canned dog food rolled up into a meatball. since she doesn't have the nest now she didn't make the baby sounds. she only makes them for dad. the bottom of her cage is lined with thick foam so she doesn't \hurt herself when she jumps down. every toy in her cage is a worry because of her bad leg and foot. she can't control it very much and it gets caught on things

my leg is still sore and i am holding it up a lot but i am also using it to jump around.

mom and dad were eating dinner tonight and mom heard commotion coming from my cage and saw my foot was caught in my baby nest i sit in. i was flapping and hanging off the side by my bad leg. mom went over and held me so i wasn't dangling anymore and then dad took the nest from the cage which i was still caught in and worked for at least 3 minutes to get my foot untangled and dad said no more nest for me. tonight i sat all evening with mom in the bedroom and held my leg up but i still hoped around a bit using the leg. mom is glad i didn't pull my leg off i was struggling so hard.

and Angel, Thanks so much for the good wishes for my hatchday, but especially for coming over to help me celebrate my special day. The cake and ice cream were luscious, weren't they? I got a new Jungle Talk Cotton Candy, new party whiskers, and my favorite movie popcorn nutriberries! Mom spoiled me all day.
Today mom cleaned in the RVS room, but didn't get it all done. She cleaned the fisher's big cage which takes up half the room, the bat's enclosure, the groundhog, and 8 of the raccoons, but had to leave 4 cages undone. Steph said they'd take care of them, though. It was a perfect pool day, too, so now mom is home to blog, and apparently in time to find BC up and running! Hope you are having another beautiful summer day today and getting lots of love and hugs. Hugs, Falco

  Hi Pepper
Been off bird channel for a few days because moms been having sever pain running down her left leg due to her back problems.moms wearing her back brace and its taking pressure off her leg so her leg doesn't hurt as much. mom looks like a dork with the back brace on.we thought this was interesting and want to share it with you.

Moths are among the most diverse and successful organisms on earth. In fact, scientists estimate there are more than 150,000 moth species worldwide! Move over butterflies, moths come in bright colors and dazzling patterns. Species can take a myriad of shapes and can be as small as a pinhead to as large as an adult’s hand.
here are five awesome (and often little-known) facts about these winged wonders.
1. Some moths don’t have mouths. For example, the beautiful Luna moth does not have a mouth — so cannot eat — and will live only for about one week, with the singular purpose of mating!
Luna moth
2. Moths are great impersonators. Many moths have evolved to imitate other animals as a way to deter would-be predators. The Polyphemus moth has bold eyespots to startle and confuse those looking for a moth snack. The hornet moth looks just like a hornet, but is completely harmless. The beautiful wood nymph, a moth that has evolved to look just like bird poop.
Wood nymph
3. Moths love a good microbrew. Interested in trying your hand at mothing? Nothing attracts these guys like beer. A tip from our scientists: Mix a paste of beer, brown sugar, and banana. Paint it on some trees, kick back and relax, then check back in the evening with your flashlight to see the multitude of moths you’re sure to attract.
Attracting moths... with beer!
4. Moths can turn bears into tigers. We’re all familiar with wooly bear caterpillars — but did you know this bear can turn into a tiger? Yep, the wooly bear emerges from his cocoon in the spring as a lovely Isabella tiger moth. Fun fact: Once a cocoon is spun, the caterpillar turns into a mushy soup during metamorphosis before emerging as a moth.
Moth metamorphosis
5. The death’s-head hawk moth has a serious claim to fame. He got his start in Bram Stoker’s Dracula, then went on to leading roles in both The Silence of the Lambs and The Mothman Prophecies. This famous moth gets its name from the scull-shaped pattern on the thorax, and has the unusual ability to emit loud squeaks when irritated.

  Hi Pepper & Angel
We didn't do anything special but, it was nice.
Today was just a laid back day for us. It started out with rain, sun, back to rain and then sun again. The cold is heading our way. Mom cleaned my condo and gave me a shower. Then I took apart a hanging wood toy and chewed it up and tossed the splinters all around. I think it looks better that way.
Hugs
Chyna

Come visit me, Chyna & Bailey ♥ RIP.

  Morning Pepper & Angel, from Jen & flock
We are planing another peaceful Sunday, the very best kind, dad is already caught up with chores, and is in the kitchen playing with Limon, they are becoming good friends already! Limon was locked up all day in a spare bedroom, and eventually became aggressive to his owners and to himself also! He will never be alone at our home, and will be talked to and played with daily! He is a gorgeous Citron Crested TooMan, only slightly larger than our Angel Christy was! Have a great Sunday, and give my love to all in your weekend home, see ya tomorrow...

Sunday love from Jenny & our Dallas family

  Pepperbird, please forgive me
I really didn't stand you up! Mom is just not often typing STILL. She has gotten some new eggcersizes and is trying to get more done around the house so, sometimes she "poops out", I am still looking for the droppings--I don't think she is being literal.
Even tho' she has gotten into the basement, I haven't seen the spa come up. I think its up to us!

  Hi Pepper
We loved our visits, the water park was so much fun!
If you didn't read it on the calendar page yesterday, I'll spread the news today. Mom didn't blog yesterday because her eye was scratchy all day long after the shot, and made it hard to focus. But, the news is terrific! The Macular Degeneration is halted, no new bleeding. She got the okay for the cataract surgery, so she has to make that appointment, and hopefully she will be able to see clearly again. She still has to go for shots, but her next one is scheduled for 2 months from now.
My leg is much better, but mom is still insisting on giving me the antibiotics as long as the doc prescribed, so I'm on meds until next Wed. It looks much better, though and I'm walking normally again.
Not much else is new here, hope you are having another perfect summer day! Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Kaji, TiPaul, and Sky for 10k!, Peppino, Divo, welcoming his old buddy Tooth home & Falco, fly free, Tooth.

  Hi Pepper
we enjoyed coming to see you at the kissing booth.

last night our township had their 4th of july celebration and Cori actually was very upset by the booms. usually its me who gets jumpy. mom put all the spotlights on around the house to keep the neighbor from setting off any more rockets. last year he his just missed hitting mom with a rocket when he aimed it at our house and didn't see mom standing there watching him.

we had one of those days where it slightly sprinkled all day long but no actually rain fell and then finally a thunderstorm rolled in very quickly but we still diet get much rain. then they said thunderstorm warning for all evening but no rain just thunder. tomorrow is suppose to be more of the same.

the trash collectors came today and can't believe they took 10 of the heavy bags full of leaves branches and forsythia trimmings from all moms hard work the other day.. didn't want to put all the bags up so will do that this weekend

love Boo Boo

  Hi Pepper
Oh you are welcome, I wouldn't miss voting for you. I was surprised to see you had left the booth today.
Today was a very nice warm and sunny day. My parronts decided to go to the polo match way up at the tip of the mitt! After they drove all that way no one else was in sight except the horses in the paddock! Because of the t-storms and rain all night, they called it off. Oh well, mom came home with a polo t-shirt and dad took her to Wilderness State Park (close by) and then out to dinner. I was happy to see them come home early.
Hugs
Chyna

Come visit me, Chyna & Bailey ♥ RIP.
