    I just noticed, in the 6th pic of Rhoo, you can see dark markings on the wings where he had been wet. No wonder he is prancing along the perch in that pic - he hates to be wetted. He only likes to bathe on his own accord now and then, and his bathing is usually triggered by the sound of the hoover, & he dives into his drinking water.

    Wierd!

    Hahahaaa, whenever I see a grey with pupils that small, I just want to laugh my head off. Pokey looks like a BIG loser whenever she does that!

    I loooooove Rhoobarb! I'm always happy to see new pictures of him! My favorite is the second to last one -- he looks so funny! (and loserly!)

    If by get along you mean maim for life then yes, Rhoo and Banshee are best friends. Rhoo sadly bit Banshee awhile back and broke his leg. It had to be amputated. http://www.tailfeathersnetwork.com/c...ad.php?t=20128

    Excellent pictures Lee-Ann.
    You say it best, when you say nothing at all.

    The face that Rhoo is pulling in the 'watching Banshee' photo is Rhoo's ultimate jealous face. He pulls this face when he sees any human paying another animal attention. Usually it means "keep away from me - I'll bite you!".

    Banshee seems to be recovering well! I am glad the little guy pulled through ok. It is rough when one of our pets get hurt or are sick.

    Re: Rhoobarb sunbathes

    Oh man... I really should check in on the budgie forum more often -- I completely missed that whole thread. Just finished reading through it all... Poor Banshee! But I'm so glad to hear that he's doing better and is adjusting well. And I'll make sure to be more careful whenever Ebo and Pokey are within reach of each other!

    my birds "sing along" to the vaccuum cleaner- they seems to like really awful noises the best for some reason- coffee bean grinders, vaccuums, power tools all have them squealing & whistling in delight!

    and i am sad to say, coby (the jenday) loves bad music as well. mainly annoying commercials form the home depot and ones that star the blue man group. awful!

    Hahaha! I know what you mean! Ebo's favorites are the vacuum and loud running water from the sink. Birds have bad taste in sounds! ^_^
