Great captions, but, uh, are you sure you were correctly identified as a New Zealander?

StyleyGeek said...

That's how parrots speak! Didn't you know? They learned it from the cats.

As I read it, my big desire was to hear *you* read those captions in your adorable voice and dialect. Is that offensive, calling it adorable? Cuz it is.

StyleyGeek said...

Not offensive, but it makes me go all blushy.

That is so cute! That is right up there with my Boy answering questions for the blog world!

Gnome said...

Hehe, the first one made me smile. I wonder if this updated the cats....

I'm so jealous!

One of my friends had a Cockatoo, and being a bird person, I was happy to make friends. What seemed weird was that its feathers felt like they'd been powdered or something. It was totally different from other parrot-type birds I've had the joy to get to know.

StyleyGeek said...

That IS weird. I've never touched a cockatoo. And they are slightly too big and pointy-beaked for me to include them in my hand-feeding ambitions.

Strangely, though, although they don't come feed nearly as often as the rosellas, they seem to be getting tamer at the same sort of speed. Maybe they watch the rosellas and realise that nothing bad is happening to them. Or maybe they are just too big to be scared of much. But I was able to walk right out onto the balcony to get these pictures, and a few weeks ago they would fly off even if they just saw me moving inside the house. So maybe I'll get to feel the powderiness yet...

Wonderful photos! I won't mention the captions. I'm too jealous.

I shook hands with a cockatoo once. That would have been fine, but it didn't let go. They seem to be very POSSESSIVE birds.

(I wish Japan had parrots. All I have in my garden is a spitting rosemary bush, which is very difficult to photograph.)

But it will probably grow up into a very cute spitting rosemary bush, and then you can get lovely photos.
