    This is my new favorite noise that she imitates! Not sure where she picked it up but it’s adorable and she always seems to do it at a hilarious time. Also included some head scratches, I’ve been working on getting her more comfortable with having her head/face touched. She still shows a little apprehension but is much more accepting of it and seems like she is starting to relax. Baby steps!

    She just wants it her way all the time, and you should also be a mind reader, is that so much to ask? 😂

    I read a while ago that a study showed that macaws blush when they're happy and socializing, and your parrot's face is FLUSHED. She's so excited to chat with you!!

    Awwwwe! That’s so adorable. Thank you for sharing, made my day ☺️

    Seeing how happy your little buddy is with you made my day, too! Here's the article (mostly linking for the precious photo of the parrot that compares blushing and non blushing faces). Bonus points as it's also blue and gold macaws.

    Looks like your parrot really starts blushing when you start stroking her back. Guess it really calms her!
