Mon and Monta have been seriously fighting all day. I’ve never seen anything like that. They always squabble a little, but nothing like this (play the video). Mon was even getting on board Monta’s swing, which she never does, and was fighting with him. I think she was the instigator. When they weren’t fighting they were in a stand-off staring at each other getting ready to fight. I’ve separated them into separate cages for now (for the first time in years!) and they finally seem to have calmed down, each resting their respective nests. It’s very unnerving.
In separate cages to calm down.
Mon was too scared to approach. But here Monta meets Niaja! His expression in the last photo is priceless. I think he was scared of her cameras. He did sit on Niaja’s hand for just a bit though.
He had a long day today, what with his visit to the vet and all. So he needs some snuggling time.
We had a little outing together this morning. Mon and Monta visited the vet to get their nails trimmed. This is the only time they ever sit that close together.
They were very good birds today.
