I've found a stash of parrot candy -- little pieces of wood wrapped in colorful paper. My parrots love this! In this picture, you can see Max, Stella, and Beeps (in the back) enjoying this treat. Beeps later went back and grabbed the pieces the greys had dropped to completely destroy them.Since his hormones have calmed down, I've been able to take a few more pictures of Beeps. Here he is, eating a pecan. I just love the way he holds things. It's so nonchalant; he has such a loose grip but always manages to hold on to his treasure.
We're leaving town for a week, so there will be a short blog hiatus. It's also the reason I haven't had time to read all of my favorite blogs -- I've been too busy making sure I got everything done in time. I can't wait to catch up with what you all have been doing and that's the explanation for why you'll be receiving very tardy comments from me!
The parrots know, as always, that something is up. Beeps attacked me this morning, as he does every morning that we leave. I knew it was coming and managed to evade him before he broke skin! The other parrots have just been clingy, which makes it harder for us to leave them.
I should have some beautiful pictures when we return; including, hopefully, some of wild parrots in their actual environment!
Have a great week and I'll be back shortly!
