How do your birdies stretch

I don't know about you guys, but I just love watching Elvis stretch out and how much he takes his time with it... Any stretching pics around of your babies?

I don't think I've got any photos at hand but I love it too. I love the way they go side to side and then throw their wings up

An upside down stretch is pretty impressive.

SPX does this one foot on the perch and stretches out the other foot behind him while he stretches out a wing in front and back. He usually stretches both sides of his body and assumes the position on the perch.

He always stretches when someone comes in the den where his cage is. It's like he's got to adjust himself to perk up and face the human.

I would laugh every time I saw her plop over.
