Re: Nike Picture thread

low quality video of Nike on my shoulder. Sorry about the background sound, it recorded much louder than it was.

Nike is molting so she's a little ragged, especially her crest but she does put it up a few times.

Re: Nike Picture thread

I love it!

Jolly kept responding to her kisses with his own. Along with a bunch of hello's. Me thinks my boy may be smitten! Lol! I didn't have the heart to tell him that Nike couldn't hear his romantic overtures.

Re: Nike Picture thread

Thanks, she is probably a boy but I called my OWA a she for 39 years (probably also a boy) so after she passed and I got Nike it just seemed natural to keep her feminine.

Re: Nike Picture thread

Really enjoyed this thread. Never even if a hawks head parrot, but her head does look hawkish. What a wonderful display with those head feathers. Wow! Never seen anything like it except with cockatoos.

Re: Nike Picture thread

Nike cuteness.

While camping this morning I was watching her preen for about 10 min before it occurred to me to grab my phone.

Re: Nike Picture thread

Thanks. Here's another from the campsite.

What a sweetheart last evening. She's been on the road a lot lately and spending a lot of time in her small travel cage. Last evening around 8pm she settled down on my shoulder and wouldn't budge. It was the first time that she slept on my shoulder.
