Big hugs

When the weather starts to cool down and Thomas starts wearing house jackets (is that the right word?), that sometimes means trouble for the parrots!

Rocky and Beeps love it when he envelopes them in his jacket. Max will not stand for it, so he doesn't even try any more with her.

Over the weekend, Stella was perched on the sink, the perfect target. He swooped in and landed on the floor with her in his embrace:To everyone's surprise, she appeared to like this! As she didn't struggle or try to get out even when he moved his arm away. They stayed in that position for quite some time, with him petting her head.
After a minute, Max had to fly over to check things out. She was jealous, even though she wouldn't have wanted to change places with Stella!

I love this!

Such adorable expressions! The cockatiels like to hide in blankets but not inside shirts. It's all about the appearance of a nestbox for them.

Omigod, that last one with your timneh watching from the sink is too ridiculously cute for words!!! My AG is super jealous. I'm bottle feeding a kitten right now, and he HATES the kitten with a passion. He bit me in earnest for the first time in years last time I held the kitten then picked him up. He's uber-jealous!
