Today Luigi turns 5 months old (May 27th), so I thought a picture update was in order.
Last week the little fellow met and played with Leonel during out of cage time. Luigi mimics all the words I taught to Leonel, it's so funny because I never intended for him to learn and he also mimics a couple of chirps done by the lovebirds (mainly the flock call and the sweet chirps they do right before sleeping).
Here they are, Luigi on the left, Leonel on the right
Leonel was over excited and was having other things on his mind... I could tell from his eyes.
My beautiful boy, Leonel.
Yesterday I moved both Leonel and Peppy into the breeding cage, she is 14 months old and he is a few months older and very eager already to start a family, but for now Peppy wants none of it.
Leonel can be a bully at times, but he didn't harm Luigi. After a bit of bickering, all was well.
Now comes more of Luigi's photos
He loves to talk to my finger and preen it as well
He still has his helicopter feathers
This photo I took last week is one of my favourites
These 3 pics I took today to mark his 5 months celebration:
You can see he already has all 6 of his "big boy" throat spots. He was getting ready to fly and land on top of my head (his favourite place to be)
Still hasn't outgrown my head scratches
