3 wet Pois

Saturday was shower time.
The best wet bird pictures, in order:

#3, Shade who felt the lure of food overcome her desire to pose nicely for the camera (resulting on her being on my hand for one shot as to not have her head in the bowl)

#2, Joey who always cracks me up when wet

#1, Zuri because this is just a really nice shot of her (caught in mid-fluff too!)

A week after...

..well more like a couple of days really.

Tully went back home last Monday evening. I haven't really continued with the posts, because it was more of the same. She has settled in quite well.

But what happened after is maybe something to note.

Shade had been her independent self while Tully was there (Shade has moments when she'll be more needy than others, but she's fairly good on her own). Since Tully left, she's been a bit more clingy. Maybe trying to prove that she's still bird #1 (bird #2 where Piper is concerned). She's been spending more time on me or close to me.

Zuri...Zuri was being possessive of me while Tully was there. Then Tully left and that had a weird impact on her. She regressed as to how she was in the beginning..very shy and nervous around myself and my boyfriend. She's getting over it and slowly becoming more like herself of late.

Wonder if she was afraid that she would also have to go soon?
After all, she is the last one to have moved in to the flock and might be frightened of Tully's short stay here. It's all assumptions really, but I do wonder what went through her mind.

Day 4 & 5

Yesterday and today were pretty uneventful.
Tully seems to have adjusted really well and the others are accepting her more and more.

Yesterday, Tully showed a preference for my boyfriend, today it was for me. Maybe it's because I shared a peach with her...she definitively likes food :)

She didn't squeak as much today either.
I don't think she made the sound because of being uncomfortable; it seems that today she was more in a whistling mood.
