Does ta-dah look and act shocked when the popsicle is really cold? Lucy always looked shocked after a taste of popsicle or frozen banana and then sat still, moving and feeling her beak.

She also begged for ice cream, but I found it gave her an upset tummy.

This will be the first public summer I’ve had Willow. He has not experienced popsicles yet, most likely. And I suppose he doesn’t really NEED to but if I am having one, he will be insulted if I don’t share. I suppose frozen banana or frozen fruit pops would be excusable.

Squawking update! Whew!! Its nerve grinding loud around here!

Pikachu and Pheobe are highly hormonal. Have taken their relationship to friends with benefits!!! And they are practicing those benefits a lot! With lots if screaming...like most of the day. They fly to the ceiling fan so as not to be disturbed....they only take a few breaks to visit me and refueling before back at it....
3 days in.....I'm hoping this will wane soon...or I'm going to have to get creative.

Well, at least you don’t have to worry about baby birds. I’m sure you’ve thought of cutting back their daylight hours.

Three Quaker Parakeets must get awfully loud.

I am kind of glad I only have one. Willow is sitting on his basket now, preening and being quite happy with random kisses on his head. I’m sure he’ll grind on his perch later but that doesn’t hurt me any.

Today was way less squawking loud. Thank goodness! The hormones seem to be waning! They spent more time with me and on activities and foraging

The popsicle is funny I must say. I can't remember the last time I ate alone. I have to put both of my parrots in the their cage, and close their doors, and make sure their latched. Not to mention I better find some ear plugs. They are scavengers! They always want to "share". I know better then to eat in front of my birds. I'm going to have to hide in my bathroom to eat eventually lol. They follow me everywhere.

Welp Phoebe and Pikachu are back at ceiling fan screaming...a majority of the day...and love making and its hard to take let me tell you!

I have to get a broom to make them leave the 20 foot ceiling fan perch....ugh

Got to work on foraging...possibly alternate their time out of cage for awhile.. maybe some training or other distraction
