perelin

My birds are delightfully weird

1. Every time one of the cockatiels sneezes (Fuchur gets powder down in his nares every time he preens, Smärg thinks she has to dunk her entire face in the water dish), Perelin the budgie fake-sneezes back at them. I’d love to teach her to do this on my cue because it’s adorable.
2. Fuchur does not turn if he doesn’t think he absolutely has to. He will crab-walk like he’s scooting down a branch instead of turning to the right or left and walking forward after that. He also scoots backwards until he crashes into something, *then* turns around to glare at whatever is obstructing his path.

Of course I can never get any of this on video.
