Watch The Birdie!

He's IN!!!

Turns out the ultimate enticement to get into his new cage was tortilla chips...
He doesn't normally eat "people snacks", but those, he loves.

Marley in his new house (below):

Later, when he's had time to get used to the new cage, I'll post a picture of the convertible play top opened out. I didn't want to freak him out by opening it up just yet.

and here's Bandit in (well, ON) her house (below):

and so they don't feel left out, and you can see them, Sophie the (male!) lovebird, on the right (okay, they're little birds, so look hard and you'll see them), and Roxie & Zulie the parakeets on the left. Roxie is the yellow/green one, named Xerox, because he was found, & came home in a Xerox box, and Zulie's real name is Azul (blue). She's the blue one, obviously. :-) (below):

So that's the birdie crew. They keep us entertained! :-)

Thanks, Janet! Yes, their spaces are quite comfy, I think. :-)

Our kitties would just LOVE some beautiful birdies in the house. But it would be a disaster!

So I'll have to settle for visiting my mom's two African grays. One of hers, poor thing, plucks out big sections of his own feathers when he's anxious.

Bandit does that - she's the white one. But she's actually starting to get better, I think.

I have cats, too, and dogs, but they're not allowed in the "bird room" unsupervised...

I wonder, when the cages are open, do they investigate each other's pads or is there some unwritten rule about not going into other cages uninvited?

Definitely a no-invading rule!

Bandit tried once, with the old cage. She got on the top, and Marley was inside, even though his door was open so he could come out. He tried to bite her toes through the top, and she tried to bite him back, the whole time hopping around on top of the cage to get away from his beak and my hands - I was trying to get her off of his cage! She's a total brat! ;-)
