90:365 - Piper

With a little mischievous glint in his eyes - which mostly led to him flying to my shoulder and putting an end to taking pictures.

Three months done! Only nine more to go!

Happy Hatchday Shade!

Shade turns 8 today!

Which means my adventure in owning Pois (or them owning me) started almost eight years ago.

I will never forget the first time I got to meet her little fuzzy butt (April 30, 2006) for the first time. She was a month old back then and injured (broken leg which was not healing properly). Those first few months of her life involved lots of visit to the vet but it was all worth it.

This morning she surprised me by saying something she used to say much more (but had stopped for some reason) - a very loud and clear "Bisou!" (kiss in French). It warmed my heart and made me very happy. Not that I insist that my parrots talk, far from it, but the enthusiasm she put into this request for a kiss got to me. Eight years and she still surprises me.

Happy hatchday Shade!

(And this wraps up the series of hatchdays I had for March, next two to come in May!)

89:365 - Birthday girl!

She'll be getting a hatchday related post a little later, with more pictures - so not much to say along with this one, other than I'd rather it have been a sunny and warm day by her birthday, instead of seeing more snow falling down!

88:365 - Framed

I'm really having a hard time with titles, having ran out of ideas, and I'm not even a third of the way done with this 365 days project!

Joey and some sunflowers

What do I see?

Ah ha! MINE

Maybe I can move onto it...

This is much better!

 (This one is here because of his silly face!)

(And this one because it almost looks like he's wearing the hat!)

Shade and the swing

Which block would be best destroyed?

This one?

Or maybe this one?

Yeah I think this one has potential!

Maybe from a different angle...


85:365 - Fluff up!

New weeks starts today, as far as the 365 project goes, and it once again starts with Petey! The random generator sure likes to pick his name first!

I find he looks very sweet here - it's almost deceiving...

A few weeks ago, Crystal's Bird Toys was having a sale (the exact nature of which I can't recall) and of course I was tempted to put in an order. Add to this that I meant to order some of her Daleks for some time now, I didn't really stand a chance to pass on the sale.

This was an order mainly geared towards the smaller Pois (Piper has plenty of toys to go on rotation as he rarely destroys things in his cage and I got quite a stash or larger toys for Léa).

What did I get?

The Daleks of course!


 I also got five "Lovebirds", although I only took a picture of one as they didn't fit nicely in the picture frame and this way you get a better idea of what one looks like.

Finally, I also added some "Make it Snappy" to my order. Again, ordered five of them, but for the same reason as I wrote above for the Lovebirds, I only took the picture of one of the toys.

Two Lovebirds and a Grey

I went over to my parents yesterday, at my mother's request, to take a few pictures of birds of whom she didn't have pictures of yet.

Here are a few of the pictures I took.

83:365 - Just a little closer...

It was hard picking one picture of Joey. He had quite a bit of fun with that toy, more pictures will be shared eventually.

82:365 - What's up?

Petey didn't ham it up for the camera as much this week. I ultimately got two pictures I like of him, and all I need is one.

Playful Piper

Chewing on seagrass.

81:365 - Shade

There were quite a few pictures of Shade I like for this week's picture. Ultimately, the Boy selected this one as I couldn't make out my mind.
