I'm sorry... I know, I'm mean Hehhehhehh

Maybe if Bucky lives long enough, you will eventually inherit him. Amazons are some of the longest lived parrots. Longer lived even than some that are larger.

He's pretty young, I would say early twenties. I've already been assured that I can have him--in fact, his owners have actually tried to convince me to take him earlier, since he doesn't share a bond with any of them.

However, I've had to decline since I'm going to school and I wouldn't be able to see him much, so it will have to wait

For now, I will delight in seeing your beautiful boys and thus live vicariously through you!

They're all beautiful. In that first picture of Griffin and Raven they look like they are planning to get into some mischief. I can here them talking saying " Wait not yet, she's looking, wait until she leaves the room."

Haha, that's why I don't leave the room anymore for more than 30 seconds if they're out! I know they must chat like that all the time... I can see them conspiring together, then all of a sudden you will see Griffin walking across the floor heading for trouble, and Raven walking right behind him ready to follow everything he does LOL! It's funny, but at the same time it's so not! It's also hilarious that Raven is the bigger and older one, but he follows Griffin's lead.

As promised, more cute pics of the boys. First, Robin.



Robin in bed . Don't worry, he's just posing .
I've heard of too many unfortunate accidents. Please don't sleep or nap with your birds!



Waiting to be petted


New portrait of Raven



Showing his colors. The turquoise under his tail is under his wings too, and on the underside of most of the body feathers.


Mischievous Griffin



Sticking his tongue out at the camera

Julie, they are absolutely stunning!

These pictures are beautiful and show their unique personalities off so well

The pictures of Robin made me squeal out loud--he's too cute for words! Raven's portrait is precious and I'm sure Griffin will be pleased to hear that in every photo of his, he looks like he's up to something Probably because he is

I can't wait for more!

Thanks Star . I am obsessed with taking birdie pics nowadays. Time to dust off the digital camera that I forgot how to use lol. This motorola phone camera is actually ok and does take crisp clear pics (when it decides to focus properly) but the shutter speed is so slow it's hard to capture subjects such as birds without it being blurry. Then the iPad camera forget it, it's really bad quality.

Griffin is always up to something. It's interesting how he's a related species to Robin (both in the genus of Poicephalus parrots) but they have such different personalities and temperaments. That's more individual though, than species. When Griffin started to grow up I said "ohhh no... we have trouble!"

Lately, I've started flying Griffin around the room first thing when he comes out of the cage. Hopefully he will get in the routine and start doing it automatically. I'm teaching him the word "fly". Funny but he goes inside his cage after, thinking it's time to go in . It burns off a ton of pent up energy in him, and stops him from the aerial attacks on my head and Raven! I'm so glad I figured that one out! That's what the boy needs, to fly more. He's too full of hormones and energy. Now that I've gotten his phobic disorder he has is down to a minimum (took about a year working with him which was so not fun), I'm also planning to start target training him.

I was just remembering... When Griffin was very young, he was actually "friends" with my late budgie Twigs. As soon as I saw his behavior changing, Twigs cage was moved to a different part of the house. Looking back, I'd never put a budgie near a mature parrot again.

Julie,
I absolutely LOVE these pictures.
I agree with Star -- you've captured their personalities exquisitely.
I'm really glad you're becoming "obsessed" with taking pictures of your birds because we truly love seeing them.

Oh great I'm so happy that you're enjoying them and that you are not getting bored yet!

I was looking through all my photos, and realized that I should post ALL of the boys "best shots of all time" . For each of them I have some great favorites. You know when you're lucky enough to snap the camera right at the perfect moment? I will work on posting those this week.
