(Sunflower) is a sweet ray of sunshine in our lives. We have a
parakeet, two cockatiels and a white-capped pionus. Sunny is gentle and
loving and usually very quiet. She loves to sit on the window perch and
watch our backyard that teems with wildlife.
Sunny is special because she is so gentle. She enjoys sitting on our
shoulders or knees when we watch TV. She likes to ride on our shoulders
as we walk around the house. She helps with the housework, too! As I
empty the washing machine, I bend over to put the items in the clothes
dryer. She carefully walks down my back so she won't fall off. As I
stand up again, she walks back up to my shoulder.
Every morning when my younger son gets ready for school, she accompanies
him while he brushes his hair. All in all she is a very happy little
bird who enjoys being part of our family. She brightens our day and
cheers us up with her love.
