I wish I could get a decent picture of my birds and I in our normal around the house activities. But it just isn’t easy to shoot yourself with a bird on each shoulder.
I’m trying to smile while Bandit, my Nanday Conure, is whispering his little kisses into my ear. If I look exhausted, it is because I am! Merlin, the Bronze-Wing Pionus, is thinking to himself “Man, here she goes with that camera again.”
Now both parrots are looking at down at Sassafrass (my female cat) who is wiggling around my feet trying to distract me. She is no help whatsoever.
Merlin is rubbing his beak up and down my cheek in his “I’m so cute, you really want to scratch my head now” foot in the air pose. Bandit is tucked into my palm; he loves pushing against my hand more then he likes me to scratch him.
Merlin is really getting into rubbing my cheek here. Bandit is getting jealous, he’s scootching closer to my neck. I’m trying to look into the mirror at the camera to see if I have a good angle, I don’t know why that looks like I’m staring up into the sky in these pictures.
Merlin is staring at a bird flying past the patio door. Bandit has gotten bored and has decided to preen his back feathers.
Bandit has just about had enough and is one flap away from exiting stage left. Merlin keeps on looking sweet and loving (he fakes that so well, doesn’t he?).
Yup, off went Bandit to the CD stand. Nekoka is wondering how delicious he would be fresh off the wing. The cats just don’t understand why I haven’t fried up parrot for them yet.
