As I sit here, Jimmy is in his cage, chirping away to himself.
He's doing one of my favourite cute budgie things where he's all sleepy and he keeps closing his eyes even though he's sleepy he still wants to chatter away.
I think this is really adorable.
Also, when I was down with Jay yesterday, he was sleeping with his head to the side (Jimmy never sleeps like this), and Jay also does the resting on one foot thing (I freaked out at first because Jimmy doesn't do it and I worried that he was hurt but he was fine).
So anyway, what are your favourite cute budgies things.
Flies to my chair when I'm working on the computer, lands on the arm of it and says loudly and clearly, "Whatcha Doin'?"
Likes to perch on my left shoulder and just sits there and sings to me for 15 or 20 minutes at a time
When I tell him it's time to go "Night Night" he jumps onto his beaded grapevine swing and starts ringing the little bell that hangs next to the swing. When I uncover him in the morning and tell him good morning, he starts ringing the bell again.
Waits patiently for his turn for attention then comes to the side of the cage, sits near me and talks budgie talk very softly. After telling me about his day, he always plays the "blinking game" with me.
I don't have a budgie currently (bringing baby Kimchi home in NINE days!) but my very favorite thing Joy, my previous budgie did, was when he would invite me to pet him. He didn't do it too often, but on occasion he would fluff his feathers and put his head down so I could scritch his neck (He did is especially when there were itchy pinfeathers back there.) Those moments were so precious that I still think of them today, years after he's gone.
My favourite things :
Blue, he is not hand tame but he will choose to fly down onto my shoulder or hand and sit , he then always cocks his sweet little had to the side and looks at me closeley
Fifo, Is also not hand tamed , he is more flighty than Blue and can give a mean bite when the mood partakes him, But I love how he sings non stop from the moment he is uncovered in the morning , always a wonderful way to start the day for us all.
Budget, I truly can say there is not one thing I don't love about my little pocket Rocket. He talks, cuddles and plays games he is simply THe Best.
Perhaps when he comes and snuggles under my chin after he has just ate some basil and thyme, he smells divine and he starts to gently preen my lips, hint to me to start to preen him He then starts to beak grind, talk in his sleep ,and then completely lay flat on me and have a deep sleep. How lucky am I
Icy loved to run around on the floor, pecking and singing to all of the chair legs, and chewing on my slippers. I miss seeing him stretch his wings and legs every time he sees me, and when the cage door gets opened.
Sunbeam...sadly I did not get to know him/her, since he/she passed away very suddenly.
Lucky always gently nibbles on my hand when he wants something. I love how ridiculously happy and excited he looks whenever I get vegetables. Sometimes, he can't wait and hangs upside down from the cage ceiling, trying to climb closer to the leaves.
Blueberry is usually an elegant bird and sits "neatly," so it's funny when she's being silly by trying to fit into the small food dish. This usually results in her being upside down with both of her legs waving around in the air.
