Rosy-cheeked

Yesterday, Phineas was being his normal self, regurgitating, eating, regurgitating, preening, regurgitating & regurgitating.  I went & sat at the other side of the room for a few minutes but when I returned to him he had a splash of red on his cheek.  It looked like a beetroot stain but I knew it was not as they had not had beetroot (nothing can escape my powers of deduction!)  I could only assume it was blood!

A panic set in as I tried to work out what had caused it.  There was no fight as I was there the whole time & Bezukhov was in the manor whilst Phineas was in the Silver Villa.  Did he catch it on something?  If he did, there would be blood over something else.  I looked over the cage but did not see any blood elsewhere.  In the meantime, Phineas was being his normal self.  It clearly was not bothering him at all.

I decided that a small blood feather on his cheek must have burst.  Fortunately, there was no drama (Phinny missed a trick there!) & life has (thankfully) carried on as normal.
