Throwback Thursday

Another "wings up in the air" shot, this time featuring Joey.

This was taken in April 2014.

Doesn't he look like he knows how to pose for the camera?

Petey interrupted

He was on his way to do something, but noticed the camera...

Joey felt the need to go down, all the way to Léa's cage, which was only allowed since there is a thick piece of Plexiglas above her cage. He was removed immediately after his feet touched the Plexiglas.

Throwback Thursday

It has been a busy week, so I haven't really had a chance to post, which means there are two
Throwback Thursday posts in a row.

This one features a picture of Zuri with his wings up in the air, taken in April 2014.

Throwback Thursday

I was going through pictures this morning, thinking of what I could use for throwback Thursday, and found this one of Shade, which is fairly recent (less than two years old) and gave me an idea for the next few TBT shots - favourite past pictures of the birds with their wings up.

This one was taken in April 2014.

This feels nice!

More self-scratching Pixel, this time using the abaca rope net.

He loves knots

He loves to chew on knots of any material.

Throwback Thursday

Here is one of my favourite older pictures of Léa. She was doing a whole body shake, ruffling her feathers, and this little piece of down feather flew off of her and I caught it still mid-air. This was taken in November 2012.

He loves to play in an upside down fashion

Quite a few pictures of him mid-play feature him in a similar position.

Mutual preening

It's been a while since I last posted pictures of a preening session between Shade and Zuri, in which Shade more often gets preened and poor Zuri gets little of the same attention in return. As you'll see below, Zuri starts preening Shade, does it for some time before he stops and presents his head for some preening. Shade will normally resist a little, give in for a few seconds and then lower her head for more, and Zuri will typically start preening her again.

I'm stepping over you!

The progression of poofy

Piper, getting progressively more poofy with each picture.

Happy New Year everyone!
