birds birds and more birds!!!
mangito 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
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
i am not sure.
