Feeling Chirpy

The cockatiel has been on antibiotics for eight days and doesn’t look quite so much like a reject feather duster.

I wanted to get a video of his showstopper version of Jan Pierewiet, and discovered he is shy. Bring up the camera and he scurries off to the back of the cage. But he is looking, and sounding, much better. He wants to go outside, but we are going into autumn, and it’s getting cold. Enjoy your spring, northern hemisphere.

Thanks for all the good wishes for the little bird brain. Much appreciated.

This post is being written on my phone. There is thunder and lightning out there, and I don’t want my desktop zapped. We do pretty hectic thunderstorms up here on the highveld.

    Glad he is feeling better. He even looks better. Good for you catching on to he wasn’t feeling well.

  3. So happy to hear your bird is doing better! I’m so grateful that there are avian vets now. My mom had her cockatiels for 22 years, and those birds would never have lived that long without the wonderful vet she found for them.

  4. Very happy the Little guy is recovering well!
    Happy Easter πŸ€—

    Well good. A shy but healthy guy πŸ™‚ My girlfriend gets her fancy bird to come to the phone camera by turning it toward him so he can see himself πŸ˜‰ He’s quite a ham!

    I had a dog that was camera shy and would get super nervous whenever I tried to take a photo of hers. I can only imagine it gets even worse when you expect the poor bird to sing while being filmed!

      He could have been an Internet sensation! Cranky Cockatiel, more famous than Grumpy Cat!
      I could have been rich!!!
      I’m just glad he feels better.

  7. He is looking so much better! So glad to hear he is feeling better too πŸ™‚ Hope the storms weren’t too bad and passed without damage!

  8. Hooray I’m glad he’s on the mend πŸ™‚
