Flashback of sweet little Rain 💕 She was posing for me from the first day we brought her home ❤️
.

I’m so sorry I haven’t been active this week. It’s been busy and I’ve kinda been a mess. We sent our son off to his first year of college and I really wasn’t prepared to face that reality. I can’t even look at his room without getting emotional. It’s a big mix of feelings...being proud of what Connor has accomplished already, excited for this new phase of life for him and trying to accept the fact that one of my babies has left the nest 😢 I haven’t been in the mood to edit but I’m sure I’ll get back to it soon. Just needing a little break. Thank you for the messages of concern and well wishes. I apologize for causing worry but do appreciate that you care 🙏🏼❤️

Starting the week off with kisses 🐥💋🐥
.
Always be careful with flowers and plants around birds (and other animals). Hydrangeas are toxic to birds. I had an assistant standing right there to be sure neither bird took a chomp. They were more interested in each other anyway 😍😉

Ummm, how do you make this thing go? 🐴🤔😼
Ever is our very own Puss In Boots. Can’t you just picture him with a feathered hat and tall boots ready to ride off in search of adventure? 😺🐎🗡️🎩

Where’s the Pipster? 🐭👀
#whphidden 🕵🏻‍♀️
The Littles love to bury themselves under blankets. This is why Freya always checks multiple times before getting onto any furniture. Sometimes I have to even lift the blankets up to show her there are no Littles under there before she’ll jump up ☺️

Let’s dance!! 💃🏼🕺🏼 Sound On!!! 🎶
This is an old video of River and Rain ♥️ River was wanting to “dance” 😏 while Rain was like “woah buddy, I just want to cuddle” 🤚🏼😅 I can still barely watch videos of Rain but this one makes me laugh ☺️ Happy Friday everyone!

I had some requests for a baby bear cub pic when I posted puppy Freya last week. As promised, here’s Finn. A ball of fluff from the start 😍🐻❤️
.
We’re having just a tiny bit of bird drama these days. Winter has moments where she goes after Sprig (not in a nice way) and won’t stop until I give her a few minutes in a time out or separate the two pairs for some time. Not sure what is going through her mind. She doesn’t seem to be interested in him at all...just wants to beat him up some 👊🏼💥😬 #keepingupwiththefloofs 🐥

Well I couldn’t let #InternationalCatDay go by without posting Ever or I’d never hear the end of it... #MEOW 😼
.
This is from May. He’s grown so much since then and his rosettes have really come in! I’ll have to see if I can get a similar shot and do a comparison post soon 😊

Willow is perfectly expressing how I’m feeling this week. So tired I could melt into the branch 😴 I’m a night owl but the staying up late and then getting up bright and early with the animals has caught up to me. Gotta get myself on a better schedule 🤤☕️ Hope you guys are doing well 💗

It’s a throwback of baby Winter for this Monday because this happened last night and I didn’t get my editing done...
.

River and Winter came to sit with me while I started editing as they usually do. Winter likes being with me but doesn’t like me to touch her with my hands. My face is fine but no hands. Hands can be a problem for a lot of birds. They look like big claws coming in to get them. Anyway, she was sitting on my phone so I decided to try the training I did with River to get him used to my fingers. I slowly bring my finger to her beak while saying “gentle”. She reacts by opening her beak to bite it. I make a “ahahah” sound in a flat voice and move the finger away. I try again in an upbeat, baby talking kind of voice saying “gentle”. Eventually she lets me touch her beak and I give her loads of praise (happy sounds). Birds love sound, especially upbeat, animated voices. My voice is her reward. When Winter would go to bite, I did the no sound and then followed with silence. She started letting me touch her beak for longer periods so she could hear my voice. I wasn’t expecting it but she eventually let me give her scritchies. First time in over a year! She used to let me when she was the only bird but then Sprig and River came and she wouldn’t allow it from me again. Birds require a lot of patience and their trust has to be earned. But what a reward it is when they offer it to you! Oh and the whole time I was doing the training, River sat on my arm repeating “gentle” and “ahahah” whenever I said it 😂🤦🏻‍♀️🐥

Iggy dance party 💃🏼🎉🕺🏼😂

These two (Rocco 🐒 and Pippa 🐭) can usually always be found together whether they’re snuggling under blankets, sunbathing on the deck or singing the song of their people (if you have iggies, you know what I speak of 🙉). Pippa flirts with the Finn bear and loves playing with Ever but Rocco is her best friend and she is absolutely everything to him ❤️

Eva and Everest met up close for the first time. The fact that they are so different made no difference to them. Eva was super gentle in her introduction and Ever was trusting. And a new friendship was formed. Such a beautiful thing to see ❤️

I personally think River is one lucky guy. Winter (aka the Snow Queen) is stunning 😍❄️👑🌸
.
I wanted to mention the precautions I use when photographing birds with flowers. I do this in multiple ways. If the flowers are organic and not toxic to birds, then I use them freely. If they are unknown, have the possibility of pesticide or are poisonous, I either photograph them separately from the birds and then combine the two images in photoshop or I have someone on hand making sure the birds stay on the safe branches. Please make sure you check “safe for birds” flower, plant and tree lists before trying this with your own birds. And check multiple lists. I once found a flower on a safe list only to later find it was listed as poisonous on every other list I came across. Orchids are bird safe by the way (and generally non toxic to dogs and cats though they could cause an upset tummy) 🐥🌺
