Quiet Day

Is it just me or did anybody else notice less people about today than usual? The freeway was actually moving at 5:15 pm- there were fewer cars on the road.

Could the fact that this is the anniversary of 911 have anything to do with that?

Pepper

This is Pepper, a very old Grey-cheeked parakeet in his 20′s. His owner, Alexandria, took this shot outdoors. Pepper loves being outside- Alexandria says it looks he’s praying not to be taken back inside!

Thanks to man’s mishandling, these birds are very difficult to get as pets, and are endangered in their natural environment.

Hopping for Joy

Here is a video of a bird like mine having a hoppin’ good time. This is the way they like to cover distance; instead of running they hop like this. The first time I saw my bird Gizmo do this, I couldn’t stop laughing!

Goin’ Coconuts

It’s been awhile since I had a bird post. Two ladies from my bird club sent me these and they are too cute not to pass on. Both birds are Grey-cheeked parakeets, very hard to find. These two retire for the night inside their coconut huts, dreaming of ocean breezes and swaying palm trees.
