    Man, I love this bird!

    I just got done doing some serious cuddling with Angel . She is so incredibly sweet, i love her so much! I was sitting in the recliner chair in the bird room with Angel and since it's getting dark she was getting sleepy. She ran around for a few minutes, chewing on me and getting scratches and being silly then she settled down under my chin and started falling asleep. She was letting me scratch under her wing and on her head. She was just so cute, i didn't want to move her, but it was getting dark and soon i wasn't going to be able to see in there lol. She wanted to stay so bad, it was so sad. I put her in the cage once and she ran up my arm and under my hair trying desperately to stay on me but as soon as i put her on her sleep perch she settled down. But it was one of our greatest bonding moments. I was so happy. It took 6 months, but that mostly because she was previously bonded to a man, so it took her a while to adjust to me, but she is finally bonding to me. Before we would just have our moments here and there but she is becoming very attached to me. She is so freaking sweet, I am so glad i found her .

    There's nothing better than having a HH cuddle under your chin and fall alseep. It's just so adorable.

    Isn't it just the best feeling when you know they love you as much as you love them. I have that with Tully but not Juno yet...

    Awww that sounds so sweet. And it really is hard to put them to bed when they're being so darned sweet isn't it? I know. I get the same thing with Cosmo.

    That is great. I posted something the in another thread the other day regarding African Greys and I feel just like your title. I love all my fids but I cannot imagine a day of my life without Ruby. We are so, so bonded.

    So glad you have that with Angel.

    Re: Man, I love this bird!

    Got some pics today during our little snuggle session. I swear she is just too cute. She kept snuggling under my arm, my leg, everywhere she could think of. Finally she settled down in my arm and let me scratch under her wing while she nibbled on my shirt and fell asleep .
    We are making progress with getting her more comfortable with me touching her. I got her to lay on her back in my hand for a few seconds before she gave me a little nip to let me know she was done. That's another thing we are working with, i blow on her gently to let her know she is biting too hard and tell her to be gentle and she calms down. She also knows tolet go of my camera strap when i tell her too. She is so smart .
    Anyway, here are the pics....

    Trying to snuggle in between the chair and me. She couldn't get comfy lol.
