Weekend randomness

I haven't posted about Calypso in a while. He's so easy-going and doesn't really do much that is blog-worthy. He is one of the sweetest, most patient birds around. He needs to give Beeps lessons on this! Proving, yet again, how species generalizations are not always useful, as my two teenage male black-headed caiques could not have more differences in their personalities!

Peacefully chipping up some wood while I eat breakfast:************************
So happy that spring is on the way! Spent too much time watching this squirrel eating in my backyard.
There has been an increase in animal activity in our backyard, leading to Thomas frequently yelling, "Robins! Come quick!" or "Come here to see this cardinal!" This will be old hat again soon.

Little Brian hanging out on the shower door:
This morning, Thomas was eating breakfast. He had his last piece of toast in his hand when Brian ran over and started eating. This made us laugh, as previously he'd eschewed food when offered and would only eat something off of our plate. Of course, when I tried to get a picture of this, he had to run over to pose for the camera.
He is so obsessed with the camera! How does he know what it is? He wasn't allowed out of his cage for 10 years, so I can't imagine they were taking many pictures of him.

Silly idea I know, but would it be the lense as he would be able to see himself?

I think Sam is on to something there -- Brian probably sees himself in the lens.

Either way, every time you write about Brian I want to run out and get a budgie! He is so cute.
