Here are some photos of my sweet April. She is going home in a couple of days and I will miss her soooo much! She has become my fast friend and companion. I cannot believe how incredibly smart and sweet she is.

And I now LOVE her chirping :) I keep waiting for the loud piercing sound that annoyed me just a week ago and I can't hear it! I am fascinated by the number of different sounds she can make. They are really interesting. Anyhow, here's some of her on the budgie boys cage and the play gym. She loves sitting on top the boys cage and is very curious about them. I watch her carefully to make sure she doesn't 'beak' them or hurt them but she just seems very curious about them and wants to play. They, however, want nothing to do with her! :rolleyes:

I'm glad you had lots of fun bird sitting April, and yes lovebirds are very smart and I'm amazed at how their brains work. They are able to make use of utensils without us ever teaching them. I have seen many times mine using a flat surface of a toy to eat their sunflower seeds (making it like a plate), none of my budgies have ever shown this type of innate resourcefulness.
It's also great that the chirps no longer bother you and you have grown to like them! :D

Wow, that's amazing how they have worked out how to use the toys like that. I can see how easy it would be to teach them little games. I tap my finger away from April and she runs to it and pecks it gently. I do it on the opposite side of her away from her and she runs there to do peck it again. She reminds me of a puppy so much for real! Especially when she follows me around on the floor if I don't return to her in time. And how cute it their little hop de hop they do when walking!!! :rolleyes:

YES!!! I call that their happy hopping, they look like bunnies! :)
My Khaleesi also follows my every move, even when he is on the cage and we truly are inseparable. After he takes a bath he even comes to me to dry himself and rubs his wet face and tummy on my shirt and also asks for cuddles.
When I get out of the shower he always wants to come out of the cage to preen my hair dry, making it hard for me to brush my hair.

Madonna,

It's obvious that little April has stolen your heart. :lovers:
Once you've experienced that sort of bond with a cute little lovie you'll never be the same. ;)

I know you are going to miss her -- April was very fortunate to have such a wonderful "vacation" with you the past few days.
