    what a gorgeous bird. We dont get them over here in australia which is a enormous shame. My Green/Blue GCC has just started to cuddle with me so I understand the feeling very well. All I can say is congratulations.

    Re: Man, I love this bird!

    Thanks everyone.

    She is getting closer to me the more time we spend together. She now flies to me across the room because she always wants to be on me when she is out. She instantly lifts her wings now for scratches, it's now her favorite place to be scratched. She'll sit on my lap all snuggled close to me chewing on my shirt for hours as long as i'm scratching under her wing.

    I moved her cage the other day because i noticed she wasn't using all of it. It was because her cage was in a corner (it IS a corner cage ) and the corner was too dark for her liking. So now, she is in front of a window and she is finally using all of her cage .

    She has also decided to become a bit noisier than usual. She does her jungle calls for so long, i don't know how she does it. Of course, she doesn't do this when i'm in the room so i guess she is flock calling for me. Hopefully it doesn't get too bad.

    Oh, i took this picture of her yesterday and i thought it was kinda cute.

    'Momma, please let me out *pouts*'



    I was looking at old pictures of her the other day and i realized that she was in pretty bad shape when i got her. She looks sooo much better now. Her feathers were all ruffled and broken. She only had 2 tailfeathers, and her beak looked horrible.

    Then:




    And now most of her feathers are straight and pretty again, almost all of her tailfeathers have grown back and are looking great and even her beak has grown in, with only slight discoloration, which still might grow back in. I am so happy to see that she has improved so much.

    She does look great, Brittany. You're a great parront and she's thrived under your care and love. My late Ernie (budgie) used to fly to me (uninvited ), too, cuz she wanted to hang with me and simply cuz she was nosy. It was awesome. She'd look at me, as if to say, "Hi! I'm here! What're we doin'?"

    That photo....very cute. All she needs is a tin cup to bang on the bars, and she's the real deal of a jailbird... hee.

    Every time I see your pics of Angel she takes my breath away. She's a beautiful, loving bird and when I see those "before" pics it makes me happy that she's finally with someone who will love and care for her the way they should!

    AWWWWWW!!! I'm so glad everything is going well with Angel. I'm sure you're so happy with the decision you made. It's nice to hear she is trusting you and enjoying your company just as much. Seeing those before and after pics really is a testament to your parronting! Congrats!

    Loki loves to snuggle too. She often tucks herself next to me, under the blanket when I watch TV. Loves to be pet and warm.

    See videos of Loki and the boys here!

    Thanks guys .

    Angel really is a sweetheart. Her only problem is she is nippy. Even when i am petting her, she will hold my finger in her hand and just nibble on it. She hasn't hurt me though. One time she even grabbed onto my finger and i lifted it up and she hung on, but it still didn't hurt. She is kind of like a GCC with her nippiness. It's not too bad but i'm trying to control it because other people are scared of her, especially when she puts her crest up and starts barking at them lol.
