Re: Everyone else tired of my excitement!

So I tried Google but didn't really get the information I was looking for... we are hanging out on the couch and he loves to sit on my chest but is also adamant he rest his beak on my face? If I move he will just get back in there and continue pressing his beak against my cheek. What does this mean!?

Not sure why you can see AB's photos Debbie. There seems to have been a similar incident back on Laura's thread about Penny, where either Laura or bug_n_flock had incompatible security settings on their phone - or something like that anyway!

Hope that helps!

As for why Teddy is resting his beak on your face AB, I would be merely speculating. Wanting to be near mama's "beak" for a potential feed? Beaming up at you with total adoration? Probably that last one

Re: Everyone else tired of my excitement!

Okay, that beak on the face... I have no idea exactly, but feels to me like a love/bonding kind of thing. BOTH of my Ekkie boys have done it, constantly. It's so cute and endearing, but gets to be a little much sometimes. My Tucker sometimes gets very demanding of it and will grab my nose or lip and pull me back if I try to turn away. Foolish boy. As tuned in as they are to it, I wonder if it's some sort of reading our emotions through vibes or facial temperature? They definitely explore and read so much of the world with their beak, so IDK, but I'll take it.

Re: Everyone else tired of my excitement!

Amazons, as individuals will physically connect in different ways. They're beak deep into the soft, warm skin on our face is a combination of seeking beak warmth and a symbolic warm connection with us. In addition, they will use their beak as a third point of stability, while napping or just hanging-out.

Happy to hear that your developing a strong bonded relationship.

I'm not the only one then. Eh AB, are these photos posted from your phone? If so, perhaps unlocking security as did Laurasea may help???? I'm desperate to see this little munchkin!
