No she didn't go anywhere!
I've mentioned on a few occasions already that when Fall and Spring comes around, so do hormones within the flock. And while some of them birds tend to be a bit more unpredictable with bites and such, Shade gets a bit more independent and less cuddly than her usual self.
It feels like that period was a little longer this year, but, if this past week-end is any indication, she seems to be returning to her old self and wanting to sit on my right shoulder and cuddle for long periods of time.
It makes me happy!
