Sunday Bird Blogging: Monsoon Spring

With all the rain we've been having, Sunny the sun conure has been passionately into bathing. I guess because he can't be out in the downpours, he creates his own in his water bowl. He climbs into the water and splashes it up, down and around until he's soaked. Meanwhile the maternal biological clock of Whitey, our albino parakeet, seems to have been thrown off course. She's been laying eggs despite being nowhere near her old lover Queenie, with whom she had a hatching of babies a couple years ago, or any other male keet. Then there's Bosco the peach-faced lovebird. The wet Spring weather is bringing out the beast in him and he's been starting fights with many of his toys. Bosco's fiercest wrath has been reserved for his acrobatic monkey on a string. The noises he makes while attacking this toy are positively blood curdling. He told me he thinks the monkey looks like a BushChimp. (Click on photos for larger versions.)

Does Sunny bathe when you run the vacuum? Our cherry-headed conure takes a bath when we run the vacuum, the blender or the egg beater. We think it is because it sounds to him like rain in the tree leaves.
