Phenomenal - love the soft colour in the first one - adds to the warm parental fuzzies. The second one - so dynamic!

A friend has several birds from the parrot family. The most talkative is a CAG. He won't go to sleep without a story and after he gets one and she puts the cover on his cage she can hear him telling a story to his toys. She's posted so many of them to you-tube.

She also rescues birds for the local shelter. She had a pair of Sulfur Crested Cockatoo's for a while and they wee so sweet. They had no feathers when she got them and when they left they were beautiful.

Was tempted to stop by the animal shelter as they had rescued many birds, just to see what they had.

Maybe I'll stop by on Saturday since it will be raining and I decided not to go to Seattle.

I stop by a enormous centuries old tree to collect magpie feather. They seem to molt all year round.

DS and I had a chance to play in a lorikeet enclosure. They were very sweet and had the cutest voices.
