Looks like Dinner

Sadie checking to see how big Lila is to see if she will fit in the roasting pan.


In all honesty, we have to watch Sadie like a hawk to make sure she doesn’t actually harm the birds when they are out of their cage. We also must make sure that Lila doesn’t maim the cat because she is just that vicious.

Big Eater

Whenever we eat any fruit or vegetables we always give some to the birds.  Eva could care less about most of it, but Lila is like a garbage disposal.


Zucchini is so tasty!


Did I get it all off of my beak?

Good Day to be Outside

The weather was so nice yesterday that the birds got some outside time.  Fresh air and sunshine does birdies good.



Yellow Tips


I got a good shot of Lila’s tail, so I though I would show her off.  She is such a colorful girl!

Happy Monday!


Eva says she hopes everyone is having a spectacular Monday 🙂

Now that’s a tasty toy


Glen:  Lila, try the watermelon….it’s quite tasty.


Lila:  Are you trying to trick me?


Nom nom nom!

Lila actually ate very little of the watermelon.  She mostly treated it like a toy and destroyed it.


Our pretty, but vicious, Eclectus has been plucking her feathers.  I have had her for eleven years and we have been struggling to figure out why she started plucking about two years ago. 


Here she is having a bit out out time with Glen.  We keep telling her that “naked” birdies get cold without their pretty feathers, but she won’t listen to us.  On a good note, she has decided that Glen is now trustworthy and will step up for him.  That is a HUGE milestone for her because she hates men. 

Happy and Disgusted


Eva hamming it up and thoroughly enjoying her out time.


As you can see by the look on Lilly’s face she is completely disgusted.


Eva is fascinated by the stubble on Glen’s face.  If you let her, she will make every attempt to pull out the hairs….one at a time.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
