   The days are no longer long enough. Schedules planned are a waste of time. It seems airlines no longer care if deliveries are on time or not. Waiting and pacing are now part of picking up birds. It throws a wrench into all the other jobs that need to be done.

   The birds are healthy and active. Almost all go out everyday. At the end of this week, we will have a complete inventory of the birds in the loft. Our planned pickups this week are Wednesday, day time, north along the 400, in the  evening, Pearson airport, and Friday, Cornwall. On Thursday we have short trips to the east. Call my cell 905 269 2348 if you want to meet.


FRIDAY, MAY 13, 2022

  I will br at Pearson airport tonight. We will be at Burger King, Brittania and Dixie Rd at 7:30 this evening to take delivery of your birds. Rick



  The birds are doing well with 150 now going in and out. Plenty of sunshine certainly helps. We will be in the Burlington/Oakville area this afternoon and at Toronto Pearson airport for pickups this evening. We will be at the US border at Alexandria Bay tomorrow and again at the airport in TO on Friday night. If we need to stop to meet you, call or text my cell, 905 269 2348.



   On Friday, 81 of 102 birds in the first section took advantage of the open trap to explore outside. We donot push the birds out the first couple of weeks so those that don't find the trap stay in.  Today we are picking up birds in Toronto and the birds will have to stay in the fly pens and enjoy a bath. Our pick up at the USA border has been postponed untill Friday. Paper work is pending.  

    Next week our schedule will be Thursday afternoon, Burlington/Oakville and Toronto airport in the evening. Friday the border in Gananogue and Friday evening Toronto to deliver birds and the airport to ship. There's plenty of opportunities to meet next week.



   The first group of birds have open hole and can go in and out as they wish. Not all, it seems, are ready for the great outdoors. I had a problem with the clock, or so I thought, but it was a faulty power bar that was the culprit. The clock will be on all afternoon.



    The birds are doing well and the first group are know going in and out of the loft. Unfortunately, I have forgotten one step of the clocking set up. They clock to the loft unit but not to wincompanion. I'll have the problem solved today and try again tomorrow. Rick

   The birds are all doing well. They have access to the settling cage all day long and they use it. A vey small group are settled and the rest will start this week. We will do their e-bands today and tomorrow so we can start tracking who is here and who is not.

    We are receiving birds today and are meeting others on Wednesday. We have an airport pick up for Thursday evening so we can meet Thursday night at Burger King. If you have your birds ready, text me what time I can expect you. We will be at the border in Reynolds on Tuesday, May 10 and in Cornwall on May 20. Another trip is planned for western Ontario around the 15th of May. 



   The birds now in the loft are doing well. All are healthy and have a hardy appetite. This week they have access to the settling cage and they will be ready to go out by the first of next week. We will put their erings on before they go out. 

   On Thursday, we will be in London, returning home to Brighton at 15:00. We will stop along the 401 to receive your birds as we travel east. We have an early pick up at the airport[18:30] and then we'll head home via the 401. We already have one pick up at Whitby but can stop anywhere along the highway home. Please call my cell 905 269 2348 if you need us to stop along the way.



   I will be at Pearson Airport, Toronto this evening, April 21. If you want to meet at Burger King on Dixie, or along 401 East,  please call or text me at 905-269-2348. Thanks, Rick


   Enjoy your Easter Sunday. I believe it's pretty cold across this continent in a lot of places and I've heard the rabbit isn't coming out. Santa will be delivering the eggs.

   We made a swing into Eastern Ontario to pick up a lot of birds. Very enjoyable seeing familiar faces after a winter apart. We will be in Cornwall on the 20th of May and at the US border the 10th of May for more east end pick ups. Toronto and area we do almost weekly so please call when you are ready to ship your birds. Birds are vaccinated upon arrival but you have to, if at all possible give them a shot 2 weeks before we get them. If not possible, let us know. We do have vaccine we can pass along to help you out.
