We went to a Christmas Eve dinner and Willow seemed fine, but now I’m getting seriously groomed. I think he was more anxious than I realized. There were a couple of moments where a motorized scooter startled him but in general he was chilling out and preening.
Anyhow we’re back in my apartment and I think perhaps it’s simply past bedtime! Yes, Willow ran into his cage and up to his sleeping spot. He was just grumpy.

Lucky Willow going out to dinner, Casey is home when we go out but he sees the car coming in the driveway and is calling by the time we unlock the door. Frigid weather here with high winds. Casey couldn’t go out even if he wanted to though
Hope you had a great Christmas, despite the weather!
We went to Melbourne for a week, but it's the wet season in the Northern Territory and I had my sister looking after Bonnie (just visiting our house) and there was torrential rain every day whilst we were away.
In the NT it's the wet season, which goes for 7 months. It's really humid as well (the dry season goes for 5 months and is generally more bearable, LOL).
Since we moved to the NT I've noticed that Bonnie reacts more to noises (including birds and neighbours' machinery/music etc.), probably because the sound carries more, but perhaps also because people are outside more because it's not freezing cold.
We are having our morning cuddles. Willow has his beak tucked right under my eye and I feel his hot breath on my cheek. Willow tripped running out of his cage this morning and fell at my hand with his beak open. So I jerked back my hand. And he spun around to the underside of the door.
I scooped him up while he was hanging from the door, but he was scared and gave me a few good bites. So I’m making it up to him. I hear some loud beak crunching so I think Willow has gotten over his fright.
