A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of bird sitting this fun fellow.  He is a sun conure, owned by Hannah's BFF Madison. 
 I had no idea that a bird could be as pleasant of a companion as a dog.  This little guy always wants to be with you, he is actually pretty bitter about being left in his cage for very long.  He likes to sit on your shoulder, climb all over you and taste your clothing, give kisses, groom your hair, eat off your dinner plate, and follow you around the room.  Believe it or not, he is even potty trained.  If you hold him over the potty - he performs.  It's quite fascinating. 

We even have the same favorite snack - pistachios.  Of course he is much more efficient at cracking them open than I am.   He would take them right out of my mouth if I let him. His pistachio lips in this picture just cracks me up.  He's a messy eater.  Just for the record, when I am a lonely old lady - I WILL be one of those crazy women who walks around talking to the bird on her shoulder - I'm just sayin - be prepared.
