Re: September POTM Contest

Yay babies! I don't have any baby pictures, sadly. Here is a picture of one of our first bonding sessions. Espresso was terrified of hands so she wouldn't step up and treats were not an option for the first month that I knew her (I got a couple of beak touches in the early early days but that was it). I spent hours and hours finding things for her to do that involved me but not my hands...lots of boxes and shredders. Then I found out her absolute favorite treat in the whole world: cold water from a water bottle! She went crazy for it!

Re: September POTM Contest

Cute pic of Kyo and siblings . I know... I also have pics of Raven and my other late BWP with siblings, and can only guess which one they are when it was the back view where their individual markings didn't show.

Re: September POTM Contest



Sarah and Sweepea, my RFM, the night Sweepea came home.

No reds. No oranges. Not really any blues (the tips of a few feathers), just a little red spot, and a gleam in her eyes...

Complete MUSH from the egg... (and usually up to something!)

This was taken about 8 years later... She's still getting new colors as she molts. Even now at 12 years old, she still doesn't have all her adult blues. And the leading edge of the wing has changed to an even darker orange. She gets a few more red head feathers every year... about the only thing that hasn't changed is the mush factor.

Re: September POTM Contest

Sydney's first night home, didn't have a cage yet and couldn't perch, so he slept next to me like this for the next two weeks.

The day I met Henry. He's in back, with his head blissfully resting on my thumb. Come to think of it, he still does that!
