Re: Watching my boy preen.

My favorite thing is watching them preen their tail feathers... it's just so neat watching the long feather run through their beaks and look so smooth and clean afterwards.

Re: Watching my boy preen.

I could not agree more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
When it comes to relaxing... preening-watching is as good as rain on the roof, Peter Paul Mounds, or a foot massage.

Re: Watching my boy preen.

If the birds get into preening mode on their play perch I'll get up close and just watch. They are so used to me watching sometimes I sneak in a belly smooch and they just keep preening. I am bipolar, can get manic and my anxiety makes me sweat right thru my shirts in dead winter. But for a few minutes, when they are preening and I can watch, my mind stops spinning and life doesn't get me down so much.

Re: Watching my boy preen.

They're the purest sort of magic.
Thanks for this thread.
Let us never overlook the sweet little miracles of everyday life with them, right? Right.
