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

I’ve gone blue to raise awareness for the blue-throated macaw!  Beatrix doesn’t mind as much as I thought she would.  :D  I was challenged by pepperandpals.  I’m not issuing any particular challenge, but if anyone out there has been looking for an excuse to dye their hair blue, now’s your chance to do it for a good cause!
Blue-throated macaws are critically endangered, with the remaining wild population estimated to be, at maximum, around 350 individuals.  Their numbers have been depleted by habitat destruction and trapping for the wild pet trade.  It is illegal in the United States to sell wild-caught parrots as pets.  Please do your research before purchasing a pet bird and be sure you’re purchasing a domestic-bred bird, or, better yet, adopt from a shelter!
For more information, please visit the World Parrot Trust’s website, and please consider donating to help with their conservation efforts.  There’s a “donate” on the linked page, on the right-hand side below the photo of the two macaws in the hollow tree.

tiny phabyyyy

He is SO LITTLE and ROUND compared to the other budgies!  And he looks even smaller in this photoset because of the perspective.  :D  SO CUTE.

Squishy accordian Bea!

I love it.  :D  When she snuggles like that, it seems like the primary purpose of her neck being so retractable is so she can smoosh her face up against mine to the greatest possible degree. 

Horatio’s getting nicer to Phaby.  Here, Horatio was serenading Phin while Phin napped, although you can tell that Phin still doesn’t quite trust him.

I see everyone is in Spencer’s cage XD

It’s like the hip budgie nightclub!  Poor Phin will throw himself off the top of the playgym trying to get into Spencer’s cage (he hasn’t figured out how to climb down yet).  :D

I have your blog under the quick access thingy on my laptop, so whenever I open a new tab, I can go to yours right away~
I mostly go to your blog first then resume to tumblr from there, I just love your blog so much <3
I bet you can spot where your blog is :P

Aww, thank you so much!  :D  I’m so glad you enjoy the blog!  We’re all so flattered!  Look, you made Beatrix blush.  :D

Who´s ringing that bell? :D

I was trying to figure that out myself!  :D  I think it must have been Beatrix on her triangle swing.

He’s starting to let me scritch him while I hand-hug him, although a lot of the time this makes him fall asleep.

paopuketsu asked:

here in the uk we still call past kings and queens by that title so i have a feeling it's different depending on the country!

Thank you!  I was actually wondering if it might differ from country to country.  As someone from the U. S., I am COMPLETELY ignorant on this topic, so I appreciate the information!  :D
