Visiting a friend’s home —- I met these two sweet birds. My friend wanted me to let them climb up onto my hand, but I was afraid of experimenting. The greens one is Sammy, but sorry to say I have forgotten the grey one’s name.
They were excited to see me, and climbed out of the cage to greet me, twittering in their language, making delighted noises. I cooed at them from a safe distance, afraid to get closer. Disappointed with me, they went back to perch on their hold. They ignored my cooing, and went on with their earlier conversation with each other.
I’m disappointed with myself too.
