||Two years old|
||Elk Grove, California, USA|
is my beautiful boy Tango. He hasn't been with me very long, but in
the time that he's been with me I have fallen in love with him and he has
made my life brighter. I have seven other birds including him, and I love them
all equally, I'd write about them all if I could, but he's my companion
bird. Tango knows when I'm sick or I'm sad. He tells me when I'm being too
reclusive and gets me to hold him or walk him around the house. He'll be
quiet all day but the moment he hears me come home and hears my voice he
screams and screams till I come say hello.
He's very jealous and possessive of whoever he's around. If Its me or my
mother, it doesn't matter, if one of us tries to feed the other birds or
hold one of them he'll shriek till we move away from them. This is
particularly true with my little love bird, Ferocious. He was fine with
her till the day we introduced them and she bit his tongue, and he hasn't
really trusted her since.
He's a funny little boy and will try to kiss you when you least expect it
and where you least expect it. Forget preening, he wants to kiss your
nose, lick your nostrils, your ears, and your eyeballs. He's the light of
my life, and I'm lucky his first mommy let him go to me. She raised a
wonderful bird and I feel honored to have him in my life, and I think he
knows that which is why he can get away with so much and I just let it go.
I'm watching him finish demolishing a toy I just got him right now as I am
typing this, I think he wants to be held, so I should go now.
