Wonderful entry from His Majesty, please pass along our humble thanks to Julio for taking time off from his royal responsibilities to participate in our contest. Good luck, Handsome Julio.

Kise has been with me for 14months. The breeder didn't know when she was hatched. Her son went in to checked/cleaned the nest and he got bitten by her (Kise).

He thought it was the snake bites; he called his mom and they opened up the nest and saw Kise was sitting there and doing her biting/attacking mode. ^_^ (By the look of her feathers growing, they were guessing she about was four-five months old. She was fed by her parents since she got took out off of the nest.) They went to grabbed the towel and took her out off of the nest and doing hand feeding. She was a biter since day one.

I love her at first sight, then knowing she has the same story I have; because I don't know when I was born... I picked my own Birthday and name... ^_^


This pic below drawn by my friend few days ago. The pic is at Michael's right now for special framing. **dances*

I think Kise is about 17months old.


This is the first time Iíve heard this part of your journey with Kise. Itís no wonder the two of you have such a deep bond. Thank you for sharing the story and the beautiful photo. Sweet piece of artwork by your friend.

Betty and Stevie are darling together, thank you for sharing the beautiful story and photo and thank you so much for providing a home to these two sweethearts. Stevie is a very fortunate kid to have Betty for a mentor and you for a mom.

First, I apologize for not being clear in the original contest announcement, Iím so sorry but in the interest of a fair playing field this contestís entries will be limited to photos.

Jacobís story is a one of those that touch us deeply, thank you so much for adopting your momís beautiful boy. We will use the kiss photo for Jacobís official entry. Best of luck, Handsome Jacob.

All our POTM Contests are limited to one single official entry per member. Congrats on the two new family members. Not only do we not mind a few photos, we welcome a whole landslide of photos, no limit on just for fun photos but please remember to designate your entry photo. Best of luck with both the new arrivals and the contest.

Yep, Spike is 31. He does sometimes have trouble with gripping so has a short, wide cage in case of falls. In our houseful of big birds ,Spike is our oldest now
I hope your baby has a life as long Spike's too!

Also, congrats on adding to your flock at the end of the week. Looking forward to hearing about them and seeing the pics!

And I LOVE those example pics! Spike the elder statesman, showcasing his great taste in aunties, Harry, the master of in-context conversation, and sweet lil' Sweet Pea, who reminds me of my Suzie!
Doc, you are most welcome! My pleasure to do this monthís contest, look at all the amazing entries already!

I will happily pass along your kind comments to Spike, Harry & Sweet Pea!

Re: July 2019 POTM Contest

Just for fun, Gonzo, first parrot. He was a Mother's Day gift for my mom in 1985 but has been in my custody for a long while. Thirty four years and he was likely in the range of 2 to 4 at purchase.

Shall I club you or bite?

That sounds fair, still like sharing my little videos as these days since I got my mom's camera I've been taking mostly videos and forget to actually take pictures sometimes. Lucky for me I can just screenshot my videos and I have pictures.

And the honesty in those eyes clearly tells one that their choices are very limited as is their time!!
