First, here are a couple of cute photos of Monta this evening. Following that is a photo of two cute bugs on a tree in a park in my neighborhood this morning. Finally, two photos from the Lotus Pond at Ueno Park on Friday. Summertime in Tokyo.
Monta got upset at my finger, but then remembered it was me.
Monta didn’t really seem to like taking a bath in my hand tonight. But he tolerated sitting under the water and taking a refreshing shower. Here he is drying himself off afterwards.
Monta took a bath in my hand for the first time just now. He never used to like that. But for quite a while now he has been unable to use his own bath, and I know birds like water, so I gave it a try tonight. He took a few sips of the water to test it out and then hopped right in and splashed around! He did fall down once (as you can see in the video) but I was able to pick him right up again. He really seemed to enjoy himself, and is happily drying himself off now.
