Leyla and the T4W Watermelon Carbunkle

She was chewing on a block of balsa until she noticed me with the camera, at which point she uncharacteristically came closer and started posing (usually she is scared of the camera).

Rigby at the Playground

Rigby's been hanging out on this little playground a lot lately. He mostly spends his time there either flirting at his reflection (so vain!), chewing on the Bird Candy, or throwing the foot toys off the edge and watching them fall to the floor, silly bird.

Mash Balls for Dinner

Sweet potato, butternut squash, and carrots:

While it was cooking I started some quinoa cooking as well.

Meanwhile I chopped some kale and two hot peppers:

And mixed together some rolled oats and ground flax seeds for the coating:

I mashed the sweet potatoes, squash, and carrots, and mixed in the quinoa, kale, and peppers. I also added some hulled millet, crushed walnuts, and paprika:

After forming into balls and rolling in the oat/flax coating:

The finished product:

All the birds loved them, the bowls were almost spotless when they were finished eating! I just took pictures of the lovies though:

As you can see, the mash balls were definitely a hit! I froze tonight's extra, and I will be making them again!

Not to forget the humans in the house, I also made peanut butter cookies! Yum!

Nin Practicing "Turn Around"

It took just two quick training sessions for him to learn to turn around on cue! He is a little smarty pants!

We are now working on taking liquid from a syringe. He will touch the tip for a treat, but does not like being surprised by a drop of OJ or water!
