I decided today to do something a little different than usual. Instead of going out bird watching, I checked around at a few shelters and pet stores looking for a bird of my own that wouldn't fly away before I could take a picture. To my amazement, I was able to get one, a female cockatiel whose about 6 or 7 years old. I know a lot more about birds, than you would think, so I'm quite glad to have gotten her. She even warmed up to me fairly easily, as the shelter told me they had found her out in the wild and she had trouble warming up to anyone. She's very quiet though, and there is something about her that is different. I guess I'll have to figure that out as I get to know her better.
Here's a picture; like I said she's different. There's a mirror in her cage but she hardly ever looks into it, and when I put my phone into her cage in order to take this picture she became aggressive when she was calm only moments before.
