birds birds and more birds!!!

which means little mango

after much thought, 
and even some tears 
i decided that mangito, the lovebird
wasn't a good match for me or i for him.
he just wasn't happy.
he would screech and squawk all day long
and once he tried to escape his cage 
and flew into a window
then smashed into a wall
and then smashed into another wall
this was after his wings were clipped.
i felt he needed a mate.
some birds just refuse to bond with a human.
such is the case with mangito.
he was such a beautiful bird
but very neurotic, nervous
and LOUD!

when i ordered the bird i had asked 
for a lorikeet which is an australian parakeet
the store owner couldn't get them in so i 
got the lovebird instead.
but i was uncertain for the beginning
so when i brought him back 
rick wasn't surprised.

so i got a little sweet parakeet instead.
no name yet.
that will come.
but i was pleased that after one day he was
willing to eat out of my hand.
i think he will be more tameable.

no name yet for him
his tail feathers are the color of turquoise
so bob thinks
turquoise bay
for short.
i am not sure.
any ideas?
