So birdie has only been out of his cage a few times (4 or 5? ) and I've had him for a week, but he really surprised me today!

He was roaming around on my desk trying to chew everything lol but after 30mins he got tired, so he decided to sit really close to me. so I put my arm near him and he climbed up, so I lifted him up a little bit and he decided to preen my hair.. anyway he decided he wanted to be higher up so he clambered up to my shoulder!! I was really surprised by that because I've never had him on my shoulder before and this was only his 4th or 5th time out of his cage! Anyway I snapped some quick pictures with my phone. How adorable is this?! I didn't expect him to do this for at least a few more weeks.





I'm floating on a cloud, hahaha!

So sweet! Love the pic of the beaky smooch. :love:

Joey loves scritches, has never stepped up, or been on a shoulder.. until today. He flew to my shoulder once, stayed a few seconds and flew away. He then came back and landed on my head, twice.

These are certainly proud mama moments, aren't they?

Might've something to do with the fact that he's in my office with me and I work from home. I sing/whistle to him most of the day :) But even so, I really didn't expect him to bond this fast - I've had him exactly 7 days today. I'm just glad he's happy here!

It is always interesting when tiels have a fave group or artist. :D Despite being named for Joey Ramone, and liking their music, Joey's fave group is Judas Priest, but he also loves Ray Charles. Any time we play Judas Priest, he dances and chirp/sings along.
