But as you all know I also have a house full of woofers and tweeters of another sort. When we brought the three new birds home we were concerned as to whether they'd all get along. Then we had a bigger concern. Caulder spent the first two days here sitting on the floor of the cage, trembling. We were both afraid that we'd chosen another sick bird. The answer is Calder was young and frightened and now they all get along very well. In fact they're so noisy that at times I have to cover them to shut them up. I found out today that pointing a camera at them also shuts them up. Here they are in action.
Elwood enjoys the company of his three roommates and is especially fond of Stanley. Norris is just happy and sings all the time (except when I want to film them singing). Calder, the fraidy bird, has turned into destructo bird. His mission seems to be to chew apart every toy and try to take the cage apart all the while screeching at the top of his lungs.
Noah and I want to thank all of you for your crossed paws and good wishes. He's feeling much better. Apparently he did pull something in his lower back, but his pills have made him feel like a new dog. He'll be taking them for the rest of the week, then we'll see if the pain is gone.
