Now that is so so adorable, I have over 500 videos of my blue and gold and I have yet to film him sleeping, as soon as he sees me watching him with the camera he just loves the attention and needs to show off.

Little miss Dj the day we met her. Asked the store owner about a lavender IRN, and he said that one had found a home, but he showed me this little one, and we ended up with a pair.

Sadly she is going through a terrible molt, and she looks similar to that picture currently with pin feathers everywhere, and she's turned into a rotten little soul, my ear is still scabbed from her taking a nibble about a month ago.
Check out Miss DJ looking all brand spanking new! No wonder you wound up with a pair after seeing such a beautiful baby! She's gorgeous! Sorry you had to take that shot to the ear, but hopefully she'll be back to her sweet self soon enough.

Knocked OUT! Lol! Yep, he's definitely feeling at home in that shot. All safe and secure. Nice!

Alrighty I'm finally ready to serve up my entry. The time stamp tells me that the end of the New Mexico era was officially in July of '97. Next stop, Cleveland.

I love this one of Lady Abs and The Infamous RB! And the end of an era! That's pretty much a natural for this month's theme. A worthy entry indeed!

I liked the part where he opene3d his eyes and it looks like he says "HUH??oh...it's just you.." and goes back to snoozing lol. He is certainly comfortable and a handsome dude too!

What a sweet video! It definitely shows how comfortable Kass was feeling, I love it

I believe only Youtube videos can be embedded here, but will add for people to click the image in the poll thread so no one misses out on seeing this precious video

What a perfect entry, Kirby! I love this picture of Gail & the Rb, and it really shows how many years of wonderful memories have been made together.

Re: November 2019 POTM Contest

Wow! Thank you, Rival! That's really sentimental of you! Yep, the next day we loaded up the crate and the car and made our way to the North Coast.
This is such a sweet POTM contest. And it's only week one...

Rival did such a great job in choosing the pics he posted! Your love for each other shines through in every post and it is beautiful to witness it. A huge thank you to Rickeybird for bringing y'all here

Re: November 2019 POTM Contest

Bless you, Terry. Bless you in all you do! Bless you and this place and our whole Community. And this place! Okay, the blessings are completed.


EDIT
I JUST HAD A THOUGHT... THIS PHOTO WAS FROM DECADES LONG GONE, AND I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND GOING OUTSIDE WITH AN UNHARNESSED BIRD... EVEN A CLIPPED ONE... I JUST WANTED TO FLAG THIS FOR NEW OR INEXPERIENCED PARRONTS. YIPES!

Just found out Spike passed away this morning so my entry has become so much more emotional for me. Here's an album I made of Spike: https://imgur.com/gallery/woV4A5O
