I've returned to give you more gooseybumps. hee hee.
How are you today? I'm doing well...considering Papaya, the curl crested Aracari, is in the birdie room right now (carpets getting cleaned and Papaya usually stays in the family room). Wow is she a weird one. You asked my what my take was on the newbies.....and I've got quite a bit to say!
Papaya is not a bird but more like a cross between a small lap dog and a squirrel. She hops, she is all over the house and follows the parronts around, she loves to attack human toes (but doesn't hurt them), she eats her fruit really strange - in one gulp! she doesn't use her toes like us more elegant birds do. She doesn't talk (boring!) but she sings to us all the time and I do like that. She is not a shoulder squatter (thank goodness) but likes to fall asleep in laps or inside t-shirts. All in all, she is pretty cool.
The Vasa baby is not here yet because he is not weaned and still on two feedings a day. In this state no babies being hand fed can go home. He will be more interesting I think. No shoulder squatter either because he is too BIG to be one. Mom says he almost weighs 500 gms. Yipes!
Dad is doing well and so is mom. How are your folks?
How do you like your new GCC friends? Is that them (below in pics)? How pretty they all are! It must be nice to have the company. I know I like hanging with Lyzo because he's the same size as me. Uncle Clyde, the largest of the conures, hangs with us as well, interestingly enough. He loves us and because he is now blind (cataracts) he stays close to us and we offer him snacks. Sometimes Raven will wander over and offer us treats from his well protected hut, but Apollo has sharing issues!
Anyhow my gorgeous Kirby, I need to see if I can sneak a piece of Mango from Papaya's bowl...I wonder if she will notice...
Big kisses to you my Kirby!
