Stormy, explaining to me why this is actually HIS salad.
I felt this cross post might belong here.
Scout is a total grump, but I still love him so much. :)
1. This is why all my indoor plants are bird safe and 2. You little yellow bastard.
Guys, I went to Aracari (and Toucan) heaven!
Stormy resembles a fluffy, pink pear. Or possible an avocado. :/
Sleepy floof melting before my eyes.
Haven’t posted a pic of Stormy and Scout in a long while. Here are the little maniacs I love. :)
Stormy was a little champ at the vets this morning!
The Nights Watch.
Scout is a lousy guard bird, but a fabulous model! :)
I felt like I was being watched...
No more painting! Time for snacks before bed!!!
The myth of personal space.
Stormy is 50% bird, 50% tail feathers.
Pretty sure I've figured out my birds alignments.
Stormy got a heated perch and he is in floofy parrot heaven.
Happy 2nd Hatchday, Stormy. I love you, you little maniac. :D
Two years ago exactly, we went to a small, clean back yard aviary to look at an entirely different bird. Instead, this charmer won us over and we said, We've changed our minds; we want this one. Best decision ever. Stormy's Gotcha Day.
When road tripping to Vegas for Thanksgiving, it's only fair everyone in the car take a shift at the wheel.
Stormy is SO MAD that it's cold (the grumpy fluffball is sitting on his heated perch).
When your birds, who are not crazy about each other, both sit calmly on your lap so you cannot move and sit there until you die of natural causes.
Guard birds on duty!
This is how extra I am with my bird.
Can I get a hot cider with a side of borb, please? Thanks.
The look I get when Stormy is clearly tired of my shit.
Who could say no to this little face, I ask you?
Stormy, the best grief counselor around. Last night my beloved 13-year old dog passed away. Stormy has stuck to me like glue and his antics have made me smile when I felt that smiling was impossible. Thank you, my little pink dinosaur.
The ball on the right (natural) is a favorite toy; the ball on the left (orange) is UNACCEPTABLE and CANNOT BE TRUSTED.
Scouts current favorite toy is his lost tail feather. :)
Guys, meet Kaiju!
Stormy and I did a little reading up on his ancestry last night.
From arch nemesis to BFF in 24 hours (the love story of Scout and his heated perch).
Have birb, will travel. I'm loving my Celltei Pak-o-bird backpack.
Scout and Stormy were so good while we had guests staying with us last week, they got a millet party tonight. :)
Tell me again that I'm *just* a little bird! Scout, looking majestic as f*<k.
Scout *might* turn out to be a boy. Colors are developing that way. Not that it matters, cause we love our little yellow dinosaur.
Did someone ask for more Bourke pics on this sub? Here’s Stormy in full on Fluff Mode.
There's reading a book, and then there is how bird people read a book.
My little rainbow dinosaur (sounds like a kids TV show).
The Skymice are good at this game.
Don't let the demure expression fool you; she's taking over the house. Welcome home, Scout!
Set fluffage to maximum, Mr. Stormy!
Happy 3rd Hatchday Stormy! We love you, you little maniac!
I saw one of The Enemy on my commute to work this morning.
Happy first Hatchday, Stormy!
I too have a burd squash.
We got some serious cheek-floof going on here.
Super Fuff Mode- ACTIVATE!
BourkeChop and Mr.-I-Hate-Everything
Hello human - I see you have eyelashes that need preening.
Stormy is giving me the stink eye for disturbing his nap.
Movie night with the boys - Scout looks unimpressed by my choice of Star Trek Beyond.
We are such stuff as dreams are made on; and our little life is rounded with a sleep. - The Tempest, W. Shakespeare
Stormy’s love of popcorn is only exceeded by his enthusiasm for eating it.
Scout, showing off those red wing patches!
Dem fluff cheeks! (Stormy napping)
I landscaped Stormy’s cage with pet-safe artificial turf. He seems to like it. He’s hoping his property taxes don’t go up.
Stormy needed a little millet temptation, to realize the new toys were not that scary.
Stormy reporting for the Bourke uprising....Um, anyone? Anyone? So, just me then.
Scout and I got in a little morning reading on my day off.
Own a parrot and you will never eat couscous alone. Or anything else, for that matter.
How can we expand on this definition to make it better?
Bourke’s Parakeet #RateASpecies
This little dinosaur came home with me today! Everyone, meet Stormy. :)
Stormy is an artist and cork is his medium. Here is his latest piece titled, This Bed Wasn't Dirty Enough.
Marley and I are going to have a discussion about personal boundaries.
From compostable lunch tray to bird foraging toy!
Bird vs. oats (it was nice knowing you, oats).
Pin feathers everywhere and Stormy hates having his head touched.
We took Stormy and Scout on a bike ride today. Like you do. ;)
Here's to a (symbolically) fresh start in 2017! Scout looks out on the first sunny new day of the year.
Most people wait until the spaghetti is cooked to eat it. My bird is not most people.
Stormy would like to remind all birds out there to bite smarter, not harder.
Squad goals MET!! (At Anime Expo in Los Angeles)
Saw a cockatiel Ugly Christmas Sweater on teespring.com and thought the 'tiel folks might want to know.
Dramatically lit Stormy.
I'm bird sitting Beth and Molly this weekend, and they are so cute and sweet! My husband and I just call them The Ladies to differentiate them from our 2 male birds, a.k.a. The Stinkers.
My new necklace arrived
The tiny ears of popping corn have proven to be a big hit with the Skymice!
Sunday morning noms.
A nice cuppa Turquoisine (Scout likes my sugar free apple cider).
The skymice were very curious about the birdcage (decorative ONLY) that I bought in Thailand.
Rain = birb entertainment.
I'm off to Thailand for two weeks and I'm going to miss these little maniacs so much!
You came to the wrong neighborhood...
Apparently, Aracaris used to be kept in fish tanks, but these days they have productive careers as dogs. (Source: https://nouvelleviehaiti.org/colorful-birds)
The Japanese magazine Companion Bird is pretty awesome. :)
My new car decal arrived - :)
Shut down all the garbage mashers on detention level!
My Polly Wanna Bird Box Arrived! Looks like good stuff. 3 toys and an herb salad.
My Bourke turned into a Parrotlet when he got startled and dropped all his tail feathers except one. (He's totally ok)
Finally got my little tropical retreat finished for Stormy and me.
There is a certain, undeniable logic to this.
The positions Stormy contorts himself into while preening, simply amaze me.
Today's Word of the Day seemed relevant to our interests!
Movie night with my little dinosaur.
Saturday afternoon; Stormy watching the world go by. :)
Sometimes the bird chooses you. :)
She's no Jean Louise Finch, but this is my Scout! (She comes home next month)
Everyone's an art critic! Stormy was unimpressed with my toucan drawing.
The tiniest chop (for 1 small bird).
When I want another bird, I think of this.
Stormy and Scout - forever frenimies. :)
Guardbirds, on the lookout for coyotes or suspicious millet.
My Turq uses his feet to eat , but my Bourke never, ever does. Do your grassies exhibit this behavior?
My Grassies, Stormy the Bourke’s and Scout the Turquoisine. :D
