http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iZncwPGP4Zg I don't usually post more than one thing in a day, but technically it's Monday now, and I'm too excited to wait. In my quest to help Maverick get on with my boyfriend, I put O. in charge of his bird chores, so that our Senegal Parrot associates him with lots of good things,... Continue Reading →
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mCvJpghG_K4 Gloster Canary Pip loves to sing along to me playing viola. I'm just noodling around in the video... I'm not concentrating on what I'm playing at all, so I mess up Bach a few times, haha. The point is Pip! My canary is cute.
We put Mishka on the table beside us while we had a nap. This is what happened: And that, above, is what I saw when O. flicked on the light. Mishka pretended she'd started out there all along, and we went with it. It's best not to upset the creeper bird.
Maverick will lie like this all day, if you let him. With his feet up like that, it's actually called Bronco'ing. This is a position Senegal Parrots are known to love. They will often flip themselves onto their backs just to lay that way. It can be a defensive posture, though, as this puts the... Continue Reading →

My dad offered to buy some bird stuff as a Christmas present, and me being me, I only just got round to it. We've... Continue Reading →

I happened to catch one of our cockatie's ahem, 'moments,' on video. Not her worst one to be sure, but it still made us laugh! Anyway, I recently thought of... Continue Reading →
I like taking photos. Most of the time, I'm too lazy to go and get my actual camera, let alone set up a proper shot, but nevertheless, it's still something I enjoy. It also means I have plenty to supplement my blog posts with if I haven't got much to say. My week has been... Continue Reading →
