mortelle: ([Birds - Petri])
[personal profile] mortelle
I'm pretty upset and stressed out about school. I already look forward to my reading break (two weeks from now) so I can do some major damage-control. The one thing that I'm going to miss about the Vancouver Olympics is the extra week we got off in February :(

On the other hand, have some Harley pictures that I took today:

I snapped this one as he was saying "YEAAAH!!" really loudly. The lighting in these was really awful (they were supposed to be test shots), but when I uploaded them onto my computer I decided to mess around with the colors to see if I could make something of them. So yeah, here you go, have some over processed parrot!

And lastly,

Here's my Harvey picture for the day. She is the one on the left in this picture, and Peanut is on the right. She and Peanut were very good buddies; she was always kind to him. On his 'bad days' (he's severely handicapped, so he has 'off' days a couple of times during the month where he sleeps in a little fish tank with a special warming light bulb) she would fly over to him and preen his little head for hours. We would always be amazed at the amount of empathy and kindness such a little bird could show. The day when Harvey passed, Peanut went all over my room searching for her. He spent the day after flock-calling for her, and the day after that moping around in a corner. It makes it harder on me to see him suffer too. He definitely misses her and understands that she's gone :( My other budgie, Beau, isn't much of a companion for Peanut, so I know these next few weeks will be especially hard on him.

And for those who haven't been around my lj for that long, my birds are:

Peanut (green budgie)
Beau (blue budgie)
Petri (whitefaced cockatiel)
Harley (quaker parakeet)

just so that you all know what I'm talking about when I refer to them.
