A Christmas present

I have, in the past, mentioned having a portrait done of each of the birds by a local artist. The last one I had received was in December 2011, although I didn't remember it being that long ago!

Well, one of my Christmas presents from the Boy this year was a new portrait. Let's say when it appeared under the tree, it wasn't hard to guess what it was (even though it was wrapped) and since the last portrait was of Petey, I knew this one was going to be Zuri (as the portraits are being done in the order the birds joined the flock).

Here is a picture of it - which doesn't do it justice.

It's gorgeous! The Boy had provided the artist with a link to pictures I've taken of Zuri and this is the one he picked to base the painting on:

Here are links to previous posts for the other paintings I have:





Joey in a bowl

This is the new norm with him. This bowl generally holds a smaller one which holds fresh food (so we can take out the smaller bowls after breakfast and wash them in time for dinner, while the larger bowl remains in the cage until after dinner.

He generally does this when the smaller bowl is out of the larger one.

The eye

An alternate to one of the 365 shots I posted earlier. I quite liked Shade's pinned eye, although it is not the sharpest picture.

Exchange that just happened:

"Hey Léa, you are a bird, use your birding abilities."

~The Boy, referring to the fact that Léa could fly off his hand to another perching spot she was eying, but instead, she decided to "flip and bite" (which is also a bird ability...)
