Perry’s Pleasurable Places

Following on from my post on Lennie’s pleasurable places,  I will attempt to balance things out by reporting on Perry’s pleasurable places. Perry has not been anywhere near as prolific as Lennie in the wiggle/jiggle department, but has indulged nevertheless.  His first foray into this habit was with the red mirror.

28th February 2017 – The red mirror.

 

However, Perry’s current preferred pleasurable place is the green peg (below).

26th June 2017 – The green peg.

 

I choose to believe this behaviour is completely normal. 🙂

Lennie’s Pleasurable Places

This post has been a long time coming & because of that, is quite long & video heavy.  Warning over!

From early on, Lennie began to wiggle & jiggle when & where he could.  He has come across as experimental but it is possible he has just not been fussed & made the most of whatever was available at the required time.  In the following videos you can get a flavour of his open-mindedness.

1st December 2016 – Raffia toy.

 

14th December 2016 – Perch, holding onto millet.

 

22nd December 2016 – White seed feeder.

Birthday millet

This post is a bit late, but I wanted to share photos of the millet party on Bezukhov’s birthday in June.  I think they all enjoyed it:

 

 

Hot birds

We are having a last minute bit of summer weather here in the UK.  It is warm rather than hot.  I always know when it is properly hot because I get the fan out & the blinds are kept down.  If it is unusually hot, I put an ice pack in front of the fan!  These photos were taken in June:

 

Below are some photos of the hot boys – they usually sit with their wings out, a bit like they need to get air to their wing-pits.

 

 

It seems I did not get a photo of Dalai looking hot.  So as not to leave him out, I have included a photo of him looking handsome:
