The swing has been a huge hit.

The kitchen swing has been so much of a hit that we’re adding another one which is being drilled and crafted as we speak. Of course, we still lack hooks to hang it up, but I’m sure we can manage that at some point.

In the meantime, would you perhaps like to see a random cornucopia of parrot pictures?

Cody’s settling in pretty well, getting used to life in this house. He’s talking quite a bit with the other birds and with us, and seems to be having a great time. Eating well, has had several baths, and finds Ky significantly less evil than I do. ;)

He thinks the swing is pretty okay too.

It’s funny. Amazons are pretty awkward looking fliers at best. They resemble a football trying to hurl itself through the air. However, Cody has not had a great deal of practice in landing, and he’s even more of a kamikaze flier than Ky is — he frequently stops by crashing into curtains.

Or atop cabinets.

He’s got the pretty amazon wings though.

Keela says that she is an excellent flier, which is pretty true. She’s still got a number of clipped feathers, but she maneuvers very well.

Today’s interesting fact. Cody was born at HARI, and I took a guess to see if they had kept information on them. They had, and he was born on July 17th, 2005, making him less than a year younger than Ky is.

This is a horrible picture, but in the upper right corner, you can see the feets of a disappearing amazon.

Ky had to be rescued from atop the toy holder on Tlalli’s stand.

Tlalli (who is finally molting yay!) thought that was interesting.

Keela too, with her little grey waistcoat.

Cody now plays this ridiculous game where he throws around a cat toy. I took a few pictures of it.

But it’s way better in video. You can also hear some of the others in the background. :)

Last night, I laid down on the couch to watch some TV, and Keela came over and decided that she needed to be a little nesty. It was cute enough to take a picture of before I removed her. She clacked disapprovingly at me.

Everyone loves the swing, even (slightly less) fat African greys, who flew up there on his own after his spray bath and has more or less moved in.

Tlalli shows off how very, very long she is as she walks around on her stand.

Cin has decreed that it is acceptable to destroy a Lady Grey teabag wrapper. No tea was injured in the making of this photograph.

Then he did some elaborate preening.

While Cody investigated a toy.

And with that, we come to the end of the gazillion pictures that I’ve taken over the past few days.
