Peek-A-Boo!

I'm not even going to pretend to be objective here - the following pictures are of the cutest baby bird EVER! This is Imelda, my Greater Vasa parrot. She is 13 weeks old in these pics - they were taken at the breeder's facility in Florida this past weekend by another Vasa owner from the bird club I belong to (the Rocky Mountain Society of Aviculture - very nice people, who do great work for birds of all kinds).

In the first two pics, she is playing peek-a-boo under a paper towel. It just doesn't get any more adorable than that...





Feel free to adore the infant queen, and gift her with gold, frankincense and myrrh - although I am told she would prefer grapes, corn, and cherries. She is scheduled to arrive at the Black Vatican sometime in August. I'm thinking of asking for paternity leave...

No. Flynn is a cyber-hottie with a phallic symbol for hair.
And you are a bird mommy, it is sweet. Seriously, congrats on the newest member of your flock. Oooo, bad pun!

See, that's not fair, I like puppies... but it's a bird, it's like 3 steps from KFC... come on people!

(I am of course kidding, I was seriously considering getting one of those little buggers myself)

You can set up a registry at Petsmart...
