Lou has been with us for 3 weeks now. She has loads of spunk and doesn't pay Bijou much mind when he gets irritable and thinks that he has to be in charge! Today is a warm winter day (almost 50 degrees!) and they are on one of their favorite play cages basking in the sun and napping after a little romp in the bird bath.
|Here's Lou ignoring grumpy Bijou.|
Lou showed Bijou how to take a dip in the little pool on top of their play cage. With all of the sun streaming in the window, she just knew that it was the perfect opportunity! I tried to get a picture, but every time they saw me get close they stopped and got out of the water. Guess I was invading their privacy! Ha ha.

Bijou watched Lou carefully, eventually he decided that it looked like great fun, playing in the water.
When Lou was done, Bijou went in for a little splish-splash. Then both spent the requisite amount of time preening and fluffing their feathers. (See his back? All new feathers! Hooray!)
Then it was time for a little lunch and a nice nap. I played with this photo for a while, but the sun is so bright that Bijou is washed out on the bottom there.
Here's another shot where I tried to adjust the camera settings. Bijou is giving me the evil eye - "I'm trying to sleep, crazy lady. What's wrong with you?!"
Well, I'm off to get inky while they are occupied. I'll be back here in a bit if I get anything created.
