    Dad: The bird magnet

    Post by andrea on Sat Jan 11, 2014 8:12 pm

    Backstory: My brother finally got into a Masters program (Physics) after trying for 2.5 years. YAY! But he had less than a month's notice that he needed to move from New Brunswick to Saskatoon. As such, my mom has accompanied him to Saskatoon to help him find and furnish an apartment while he starts classes. As such, my poor dad is left all alone in NB, with their flock of four.

    Now two of the flock are fairly antisocial (two rescues, Zack and Squeaky - I call them the Grumpy Old Men because they are always running around together making mischief). They DO NOT get along very well with the other couple (yes, couple), Zulu (tiel) and Pinkie (lovebird), who spend their time scouting 'nesting' places and then forgetting about them. But they must be missing people because looks what happened when my dad sat down to watch his football game:


    from furthest to closest: Zack, Squeaky, Zulu, Pinkie

    Absolutely adorable!! Poor Cricket would love to sit like that with Freddy, but he won't hear of it.

    well, Zack usually sits only with Squeaky, and hates Zulu. Pinky likes Zulu's company, and Zulu likes being preened by Pinky. Squeaky is having a blast running around with Zack, but doesn't give a hoot one way or another about the others.

    Gee, I just realized how complicated mom's birds' social lives are  Surprised

    Might do them good to be missing Mom Giggle Looks like they can manage to get along with Dad in charge.

    Days of our Birdie Lives

    Could work. But we'd have to find some to dub from Birdese to English
