Headless grey

Well, not exactly, but that's the first thought that went through my head when I saw this picture:Saturday night, we were watching TV with the parrots. Stella was on Calypso's cage, eating his food and preening.

You can see her feathering is improving somewhat, but she's still doing some picking. It may be an entrenched habit, but maybe not.

She's got a down feather on top of her head:
She's finished preening and apparently doesn't realize there's a feather on her head!

Nat -- what I find funny about the last picture is that she looks so regal and put together...except for that! She'd spent so much time preparing herself and missed an important detail.

DB -- hope she's not as scary as the Headless Horseman!
