The various misadventures of my birds: budgies Oliver, Horatio, and Violet, Spencer the green cheek conure, and Beatrix the cockatiel. With pictures.

Oliver looks so startled at the sudden Horatio
My favorite thing is how you can see the degree to which Oliver’s head feathers have deflated between the first picture and the second. :D (I think Oliver’s startlement was my fault, since I think Horatio was standing on my hand. I must have just zoomed Horatio over there really quickly when Oliver wasn’t expecting it.)

Phin, let me love you, poor baby!
Phin is so confused by Horatio and Oliver, poor thing. He still seems to think like a baby, so I don’t think he understands why Horatio feeds Oliver but doesn’t feed him. :( (I did let him out for a snack after that happened, though, so he recovered quickly from his disappointment. :D )
Look at his little tooooongue! That’s the pudgiest I’ve seen him!
I’m super happy with all the conure tongue shots I’ve been able to get lately. :D (My new goal is to get some tiel tongue shots!) And he’s been SO FAT. He just keeps dropping little poofs of down everywhere, so I imagine he’s fluffed to try to keep himself insulated, poor chilly beeb.
I have no idea what happened, but suddenly he is the clingiest bird in the world. I can’t even take pictures of the budgies without him trying to cuddle my arm. It’s like someone found his “velcro bird” switch and turned it to “on”.
In addition to being snuggly and soft, he also keeps preening my face/hair and saying, “Good boy,” into my ear. I LOVE HIM SO MUCH ;_;
(He’s been kind of low energy the past day or so. :/ He’s eating and drinking normally, so I’m pretty sure it’s just due to the fact that he’s molting pretty heavily, but I’m keeping an eye on him and will take him to the vet if I see anything else that concerns me or if he’s not back to normal in a few days.)
