Hey there,
Some folks here have already met me, I'm also Tovah on TB (Talvi is the name of one of my cats). Along with our 2 budgies, Rowan and Sage, I also have a sun conure named Stewie, a dusky conure named Sidney and an african grey timneh named Morgan.
Stew is my sunshine. We have a super bond. He was our first non-budgie. Stew says a few words and is very friendly and outgoing.
Sid is working through some issues with his past but is coming around (at a snails pace). He was re-homed several times before coming to us. Just this week we've made some great progress. He's started letting me rub his head through his cage. This is brand new for him, he's never let me touch him before (he has always been the one touching, he likes to snuggle if I keep my hands to myself). Hopefully it will continue. He is fond of the backslide. (Just to clarify, he comes out of his cage often, he enjoys playing and snuggling with us, he detests being touched by hands)
Morgan is very sweet, just prefers my husband. He mostly just thinks of me as his head scratcher and treat giver. We have long conversations when I'm at my computer. Morgan is also a clown. He's just starting his first big molt (he's a year and a half but always molted gradually before). Poor guy. Morgan is also known around here as The Movie Talker. From the time we plop down on the couch to watch a movie until the time the credits roll, Morgan is a motor-mouth. He has pretty good comedic timing and sometimes his sound effects go perfectly with the movie lol
I've rambled enough for one post, and it's well past bed time for me.
Looking forward to seeing some familiar faces and meeting some new ones :)

Thanks guys :) Grey's are fun and definitely keep you on your toes!
As requested, some mug shots :biggrin5:

Morgan thinks he's cute (sometimes he is) *Please excuse his feathers, he's beginning The Great Molt of 2010. (He's also pretty peeved about the camera. He does this thing where he stands still but rotates his body in a wide circle. I think it's meant to be scary. Really it's just silly though, poor guy :giggle:

Stewie loves my chainmail necklace. Stew is a ham and loves to be the center of attention. He has no problem with me taking pictures of him :photo:

Blurry Stewface!

Sid is not a fan of the paparazzi. Sid is actually not a fan of much. He's coming around though... sometimes.


I'm having trouble getting new pictures of the budgies. I so need to upgrade my camera to one with less of a shutter delay. I'm currently using a P.O.... less than awesome cheep-o one. New camera for my birthday though!

Thanks! lol he sure isn't... much of the time he puffs up and sways at it... I feel a little guilty that I find his irritation so amusing... but not guilty enough to stop taking pictures of him :giggle:
