This is just beautiful. My sis has bird over 15 years old now. One thing I've learned about them is besides loving very deeply they can be little brats at times too lol. This pic is lovely, you did a stellar job on it ma'am.
I you appreciate my comment please leave your own [link] I love comments too
Cockatiels are my sis favorites as well. She only closes his cage when she's cooking or when the doors open. fortunately he loves his cage but sometimes he'll land on my shoulder in my room without warning lol.
My friend just got a love bird but it was too much for him. I don't think some people understand the commitment of a bird. A hamster will die in a number of years... A bird stays with you a good portion of your life. Lol he said the thing was too noisy. I don't know what he expected... It's a bird.
