I am owned by 2 gorgeous blue-headed pionus parrots, Sueño and Gracie. There was no deliberate intention to have a mated pair in my house. They were both re-homed and came to me at different times. When I got Gracie I was actually looking for a companion for Sueño, as he had been alone for about 5 years following the death of my long-time companion of 31 1/2 years Papa, my panama parrot.

So since it had been about 6 years since the loss of our beloved Sunshine, I was looking for another sun conure. But I also wanted a bird with a known sweet personality and Kelly said the sun’s were still too young to tell but there was a female blue-headed pionus whose mommy became a traveling nurse and could no longer care for her. And Gracie is the sweetest soul.

I must say that I’ve had parrots since 1972 and this is the first time I’ve had a male and female of the same species. Last year was the first time that Gracie went into nesting mode. Now, I am not creating a nesting set-up. Breeding is not my goal. But Gracie displayed the behavior.

Sueño turned into “guard bird” did his best to “protect” Gracie from me, especially when she was staying for hours in her sleeping cage. But this spring while he was spending time with her, I guess he got bored and left that room to come find me. He would say “hello” and I knew he was coming. I would pick him up and he sure wanted the head scritches I gave him.

So I believe Sueño is a critical thinker. When he realized that Gracie didn’t need him to stand vigil while she was “nesting” on the perch, he decided to do something else. He did something for himself.

What’s going on in your life that you need to make your own decision about, that you need to think critically about and not just do what you’ve done before?

Wishing you to learn lessons from my feathered kids,
