Be thankful he doesn’t do this to guests 🤣😂🤣 my sun conure likes to fly over people to defecate on them. I can’t crawl into a corner fast enough. I get embarrassed easily.

Well @kme3388, Lovejoy has so far resisted the temptation to turn his tiny talons on me or any houseguests. And as for pooping, that would be the preserve of the two cockatiels and the budgie, who are all equal opportunity poopers and will poop on anyone, anytime, and anywhere. They are VERY non-discriminatory about that!! :poop::poop::poop:

It was a hot one in Briz Vegas today, so hot in fact that the little red rooster had not one but TWO baths, one in the cockatiel's water dish and the other in his Pyrex swimming pool. I was SO hoping that Peachie would join her handsome boyfriend for a cooling dip but she still seems to prefer the mist bottle while Lovejoy still hates it! Or maybe they just don't want their romantic canoodlings in the pool being plastered all over the interweb - who'd have thunk?! ;)

All that extra time in the tub yesterday must explain why he’s looking SO handsome this morning 😍

And why Peachie is finding him particularly irresistible and is even bringing him gifts!!

What a Love Story!!

Clearly see why the glass pie dish is working so well!! It's the assurance of those strong net ropes holding it safely in place!!

Very happy that he is enjoying his splash time!!
Could be, Uncle Boats, could be! Or maybe he just likes the extra space the pie dish gives him to show off his roosterly magnificence to his pretty little girlfriend ;)❤️‍🔥 :love:

And, Yes, he should!!
As he has a sweetheart to confirm that reality every few minutes of every day!!

To be very honest, it looks like he is confirming that reality!!
The eyes tell the story, so clearly!

You are so very lucky dear friend!! So, very lucky indeed!!
Oh I know, Uncle Boats, he's been a blessing and a delight since the day we brought him home. It's not for no reason that his name is "Lovejoy!" And looking at him, it's hard to believe it's the same little birdie with the scruffy baby feathers and the messy beak we brought home last September - such a contrast between then ...

If we didn't know better, I'd never believe it's even the same bird in those pictures. My little Aussie nephew has grown into a most handsome rooster! ❤️

I was trying to find an app or something online that might convert the image to UV with no luck, so the "solarizing" effect on this one that @Rozalka posted a while ago was as close as I could get. I wonder if this is what they might look like in the UV range?

Rozzy's pretty smart though, she might know of an app that can convert an image to UV. I reckon they'd look pretty spectacular in the wild, my bird vet regularly takes trips up north and sees them in their natural range - I would LOVE to do that some day!!

Because she is a sweetheart and owns it so very well1
That she is, and yes she does, Uncle Boats! Although sometimes it seems Lovejoy may think she comes on just a little too strong and he has to hide behind his mum!!
