None. My wife has one too many. Kidding!
Oh, yeah, Scott, I got this! After all, what do I NOT want to change about the bird?
A perfect kick-off for 2020.

Here is Her Royal Highness's Authorised January Contest Entry.

The first of January has brought forth the first flush of ivory curl flowers, and guess who is right into them up to her excited little eyeballs!

WARNING: This video does contain images of the Royal Rear End and gratuitous usage of the word "bum".

[ame="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MhTFXe6sJGM"]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MhTFXe6sJGM[/ame]

And guess which faithful servant has to go out in the heat to harvest them for her!!

(Note to Mods, I've uploaded this to that YT channel, not sure if that's the correct way to enter a video into the contest. Please give me a yell if it isn't!)

Thanx you guys :)

Lilly makes that throaty little gurgle when she’s really enjoying herself which is why I particularly wanted to do a video entry - you don’t hear it in a photo :)

Scandalous! The Royal Rear End has indeed been exposed! Darn those paparazzi!

And yes, pics just don't capture those cute little noises.

Lilly is so precious, I just wanna hold her and give her snuggles! What a great mama you are to bring those flowers that bring her such pleasure:) She has you trained well!

Holy cow, this made me laugh so hard! Gonzo was obviously so unimpressed with what was in his dish, that look is priceless.

Love this Scott! :D Two weeks, that's impressive. Levi took to the Harrison's pretty quickly as well. They are still his fave, thank goodness. :)

Kise is demanding the right of approval before you buy a new condo!

Jacob the blue and gold macaw
Just for fun:

Jacob's first time meeting another macaw other than his parents and siblings when he was born. Her name is Simon, yes it is indeed a Simon that is also a she. She was never sexed and laid an egg at around 20 years old. Jacob enjoyed his time with her. Simon is on the left and Jacob is on the right, as you can see Jacob was just a youngling.
