Calder and Norris were very close. We think they may have been brothers who lived together their whole lives. Since the death of Stanley, they became even closer. On Monday afternoon Calder died. He hadn't been sick so we were all surprised, especially Norris. Since then I've become increasingly worried about him. He hasn't eaten, just sits on the top perch calling for his friend and looking all around. This morning when we uncovered him, he started calling for Calder again and we made a decision.
We were one of the first customers at the pet store this morning and took some time to pick out Calder's new friend. I chose a mostly white bird who seemed pretty active. I had only planned to get one bird, but the white one had a little yellow friend that stayed close to him at all times. So, of course, we got them both.
Stay tuned for names. I have a few ideas.
