Solstice Sunny by Windthin Solstice Sunny by Windthin
Taken this past solstice, this is Sunny. He is over two decades old and still in amazing shape, given that he's technically an elderly cockatiel now. He was found many years ago by my wife when she was a kid. Her grandmother called her and told her there was a bird, clearly a lost pet bird, in her back yard. Rachel biked all the way over with a budgie cage balanced precariously on her handlebars and was quite surprised to discover the bird was a cockatiel. He came right to her, though, relieved apparently to be with humans again, and is the reason she got her own cockatiel eventually, and that we own three now. He still lives with her parents, and is a very peculiar and paticular bird.

He hates fingers. Fears crows and blue jays, which probably picked on him in the wild. Loves vanilla ice cream. Say hello to Sunny, folks.

naaaww he looks very adorable, but I think the cage is too small for him.

Oh, no, this is a pretty standard-sized cage for a cockatiel. You do want to let them out for a time.

Our birds have a massive four-cage complex they can roam around on, interconnected in various ways, festooned with toys and treats.

Yeah, birds can be curious in their appetites. Maui has a love of carrots, while Liriel, sadly gone, really loved spicy blue corn chips.
