The Gucci Man!! Who is quickly becoming very spoiled around here!!! ha ha ha

A little blurry......but still a neat picture of Soleil.

This is our new Pied Sun Conure owned by Susan and I. She is from Montreal, so we thought Soleil was a fitting name for her. She is named after one of the Suns that I hand fed earlier this year as well, who I loved! She should lose most of the green as she matures. I think she was trying to turn the radio on in this picture...maybe for a little romance music to flirt with the Sun Conure statue in the back! ha ha ha

Myah and Soleil

Paris having a nap with the kids.

"Auntie Jewel you are the best!!!!"

This Pineapple sweetheart has an eye that has what looks like a hazy covering, she flies in circles as I believe she can't see very well at all out of the one eye....but she seems to function just fine otherwise. She is so sweet and trusting of us all......what a doll she is!!!!

This is our friend and neighbour John....I think he is falling in love with this Pineapple girl!!!! He says he comes over to visit us for a "BIRD" fix.....ha ha ha

A cage full of Feathered Imps.....I am hand feeding this bunch for my friend Angie. There are 3 Pineapples and 3 Yellow sided Conures!

Gucci and friends.

This is Gucci....the designer bird...ha ha ha..... He is a beautiful yellow sided green cheek conure.

Yellow sided green cheeks.

A pineapple trio!

The baby Pearly Conures are starting to get some feathers. I can already tell these little birds are packed full of personality!!

"Feed me first Mommy"...."No, me first"....."No, me first I am smaller"..."No, feed me, pick me"....."Pick me Mommy"

Feeding these Pearly's has been so funny...they are so noisey. They make baby Sun Conures seem quiet!!!!

This is Dixie...she is a Painted Conure who belongs to my friend Susan. I am taking care of her until she gets a mate...cause I love her.... he he he... She is a sweetie-pie!!

Dixie loves to stretch her neck up as high as it will go....she does the cutest little high pitched squeaks and she loves to dance!!

Work it Dixie....give us a smile!!

Sweet Molly...she is getting lots of new feathers on her back and wings....but I think she will never get any on her belly due to follicle damage. She is a doll and loves to sit on my shoulder and preen my hair.

Hard to see, but the three babes are growing fast. The oldest has opened his eyes and we banded him with our first band!! A Precious Feathers first!!!

She was not quite what you would call refined. She was not quite what you would call unrefined. She was the kind of person that keeps a parrot.....Mark Twain

"Just A Bird"

From time to time, people tell me, "Lighten up, it's just a bird" or, "That's a lot of money for just a bird." They don't understand the distance traveled, the time spent, or the costs involved for "just a bird."

Some of my proudest moments have come about with "just a bird." Many hours have passed when my only company was "just a bird", but I did not once feel slighted.

Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by "just a bird", and in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of "just a bird" gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day.

If you too think it's "just a bird", then you will probably understand phrases like "just a friend," "just a sunrise," or "just a promise." "Just a bird", brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust, and pure unbridled joy.

"Just a bird", brings out the compassion and patience that make me a better person. Because of "just a bird", I will rise early, and look longingly to the future. So for me and folks like me, it's not "just a bird" but an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future; the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment.

"Just a bird" brings out what's good in me, and diverts my thoughts away from myself and the worries of the day. I hope that someday they can understand that it's not "just a bird" but the thing that keeps me from being "just a human."

"So the next time you hear the phrase "just a bird." Just smile, because they......"just don't understand!"

This past weekend I did a radio interview with the lovely Deena Cooper, for her show on 1050 Chum called Deena Speaks Dog. I talked about my wonderful Salukis and what it was like to own a Saluki. I was so nervous!! ha ha ha I am sure you will be able to tell!! LOL It airs on Saturdays at 11 a.m. Here is the link to her site.

Bonjour everybody, Paris here. I thought we would do some Saluki Yoga to start the day!! :)

The first thing we need to do before we start is have a good stretch!

This move is called the tail bend. First you grab the end of your tail...

....and you pull the tail up and over the back and hold!

Now for the leg breaker. You have to put your leg behind your head like this and....

...then you see how far you can bend your leg up over your back!!!

So that is how I keep looking so cute!!!
Au revoir
