cuteness overload with Leon!

so leon was being rely clingy today and wanting to sit on my hand and sing to it so i took the change to get some pics

and the cuteness overload begins!

Shake!




singing to my finger




his heart stealing face


the full pic


singing to my thumb


closing his eyes and singing to my thumb


still loving my thumb!


preening and looking around :P






"floofing"/ "puffing"





preening again


staring at the camera




i have a cute video of him playing with the camera and checking it out. i will have to see when i can get that up

Adorable! I will note that in one of the photos his skin looks pretty red under his beak. Give him a little mist, even if he doesn't like it, and see if it goes away. Just looks a little irritable is all

i will see if he will take a bath because he usually swims so it should wash it a little. it might have just been the shading and the light might have emphasized it. nothing out of the ordinary really popped out when he was like that

Could just be the lighting then my birds get red skin when they haven't been misted (or if mites are around, but I doubt he'd have them without you spotting them)

i havent seen any mites. i cant imagine that i have any because i keep every thing pretty clean. when poop off is in stock again, i will be getting some of that to clean the tree.. wet and dry paper towels just dont do!

That poop off failed me. It worked great for my flock, except the lories. Which is ironic because I needed it for Darwin's mess and turns out there's a black capped lory just like him on the label

Trick of the trade, half Poop Off half water works just as well for ordinary poop and saves you money. It's what we use at work all the time for budgies/tiels/lovies.

Yes it's because of the diet, but you'd think it would be strong enough!

Leon is a beautiful budgie! I love his color. I use Poop-off and really like it, I don't own lories though, so I can't speak for how it works with them. I soak everything from the bird cages in hot water and Poop-off once a week. Then get to scrub the cage and all the dried up fresh food on the floor, table and walls with it as well!

yeah it also pied. the weird thing is that it used to just be pink but when he was finally exposed to butch after being an only bird for so long, he for the blue on it and sometimes it gets brighter and sometimes it doesn't
