Re: September 2019 POTM Contest!!

My official one is going to have to be this old favorite of mine, of me and Miley working together on grooming Alaska (both of whom have since passed away, RIP)




But I'll also have to include these more recent "just for fun" ones!

I'll make this my official entry unless I get a better picture, I took this one a month and a half ago of branch and poppy taking turns preening each other as I got ready for the day. Cage was cleaned later that day so no judging the mess please!

Hahahahaha! Jacob is enjoying the heck out of that self-applied head rub! Nice! Beautiful plumage too, btw.

Great grooming shot of Kise handling her business! And, as always, I'm floored by the play area you've set up for her. Wow!

Tami, your photography skills always make me swoon! Damn, you're good! And it definitely doesn't hurt to have such a beautiful subject, either! Please give Levi a scritch or three from me.

Petting (for POTM contest) - YouTube
When I will be sure if videos of Zenek above show grooming, I'll decide which is my official entry
I loved both of these videos! Zenek is such a character! That petting vid is just the embodiment of bliss, though. Brought such a smile to my face!

What a sweet pic of Jacob! And you can tell he knows it, too! Showoff! Lol!

I bought a baseball cap and we have now been successful in ~95% shoulder landings. Mommy forgot her baseball cap this morning and my boy decided to take advantage of the opportunity!
Hahahahaha! Oh, I love this! Bertie just KNOWS he is a master hairdresser, doesn't he? Don't you love how they just swoop in at any given opportunity? Hilarity!

Every single one of these is absolutely awesome, but that first one! Wow. That is just beautiful. Such a loving moment captured, frozen, in time. I love it. I'm so sorry for your loss of Miley and Alaska. As your photo most expressively shows, they both knew they were loved, and they loved in return. That is the hallmark of a life well lived.

What a sweet shot of them both! They're really serious about their work, too! You can see that neither one is slacking in their grooming duties!

Nice to see progress leading to grooming! And there are two kinds of cages.... those freshly cleaned, and a snapshot five minutes later!!
