Flowers, Feathers, Fur and Flora

This is Kelly, my precious African Grey. She's been a part of my family for 15.5 years now, and has just celebrated her 16th "hatchday". She delights me with her comical ways, her cuddly moments, and her child-like inquisitiveness.
She's missing a portion of one toe because she thought she could win a game of tag with my macaw. She was wrong. She doesn't try and play that game anymore.

The title of the pic is the direction I'm going to go for the month of May (since sticking close to home is still the desired level of activity here in Illinois, USA). The flowers, the feathered kids, the 'fur babies' and other growing things in my yard will have to suffice as my photography subjects for the next 31 days.
Occasional celllo?? I watch a clip of Julian Lloyd-Webber ( he's famous here!) playing his 'cello last night, your one is prettier, but he has a heart in his bridge thing that supports the strings!!

Thank you for educating me!!

You can almost see her sweet intelligent curiosity in her eyes. I look forward to this month’s gifts

It just occurred to me that I should look in my photo archives and see if I have some photos of my beloved cello so I can share them with you

Great choice of monthly topics :) Hope Kelly gets to test her wings and has a good fly every so often.

@gilbertwood Kelly is fully flighted which is why, when outdoors, she must be inside her parrot aviary. She's a wily thing in the house, often zipping through the door of her room for a quick zoom down the hall. She has learned to fly to my hand on command, something I hope will be a lifesaver should she ever accidentally escape from the safety of the house.

@jgpittenger I would like that very much!

@lyndemc That's lovely to hear :)

Just when the horrible memories of that annoying blue and gold macaw next door begin to fade, you have to post this. :-( I'm sure Kelly would be a much more desirable neighbor. She sure is a pretty one! Hope you're able to get out and about a little more than we are here in Kalifornia.

That is a beautiful photo of your African Grey. Is she talkative - the only other one I've met was.

15,5 years is quite a bit. My dog is 15 and two months now and she has full rights as a member of the family!

How sad life must be without the additional adopted family members! Kelly is gorgeous, and I know the greys are real charmers!
