Can you just see the anticipation in their eyes? They saw me get out the little paper cup in which I freeze their bean mix, so they know its coming…. beans for dinner!
This is the look of a Nanday Conure intent on getting to the coffee table on which his little dish of food awaits.
This is how the more laid-back Bronze-Wing Pionus indicates his eagerness to participate in the demolishment of dinner.
They usually don’t share well so they each get their own dish. They have no manners either which is why I have all the furniture and floor protectors in place. Although I’m sure it would be neater to eat in the kitchen, we prefer our dinners in front of the TV.
Nom nom nom…
More nom nom nomming. In case you are wondering, I soak a bag of dried bean mix over night, then cook till they are softish but not squishy. I usually add a half a bag of wild rice and some popcorn in the last half hour or so. Then I spoon the mix into little paper cups and freeze them. I feed the birds the mix every couple of days as their dinner. The other nights they get some of whatever vegetables I’m eating.
Bandit decided Merlin’s plate looked much more flavorful and interesting. Merlin isn’t so sure he wants to share.
Mom, quit taking pictures and get him out of my dish!
I takes me twice as long to clean up on bean dish nights. What a mess they make of my coffee table. But I love do love my birds, spoiled as they are.
