    Wow. That must feel awesomely comforting for both of them.

    Little one looks like the Sun Conure I saw at the park a couple weeks ago. Big one looks like his cockatoo friend except he wasn’t as big (relative to the conure); I’m guessing he was still young, then.

    Also, Talk Talk prison! 😆 😆

    (Morgan Freeman voiceover:) I must admit I didn’t think much of Andy first time I saw him. Looked like a stiff breeze would blow him over.

      ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

      I love you and I hate that I didn’t think of that first.

      Think they’ll make it to Zihuatanejo?

        OK, I have to ask – a movie?

        • Not That Mike The Other Mike September 30, 2016 / 11:36 pm

          Yes, it’s a reference to “The Shawshank Redemption,” about two men who form a friendship in prison. I cannot say more without spoiling the story. If you haven’t seen it, it’s one of the greatest movies ever.

            I knew I liked you.

          You need to watch Shawshank.

    … the little one has his foot on the bigger one’s foot…. I just can’t….*clonk* *ded*

    • Mikeyfur September 30, 2016 / 2:15 pm

      Oh! I didn’t see that little foot until you mentioned it. Precious.

    • Smartypants September 30, 2016 / 2:40 pm

      Oh, good eye – I would’ve missed it too.

      Cutest protection racket ever!

    AWWWWWWWWWW. Fluffy white clouds and a sunset.

    “Talk Talk prison”! Ha!! This is so adorable. What a sweet ‘too! (Though I’m wondering if the wee conure is comfort plus a sort of avian hot water bottle….)

    I can’t believe that two people voted this down…

    • Madame X September 30, 2016 / 4:20 pm

      Maybe people who disapprove of keeping birds (or animals as a whole) as pets. Me, I’m all for Teh Qte, wheresover it may be found…

  8. Jakepets September 30, 2016 / 4:40 pm

    I actually checked for down votes, because I think the headline (cage = jail) was kinda asking for ’em. Not from ME, though! Diane Ackerman describes a similar scene between 2 species of bat housed together in her essay collection “The Moon by Whale Light.” So sweet.

    🎤🎧 Did you ever know that you’re my hero.
    You are the bird beneath my wing.

      Ahhhh.

    • Murray C. September 30, 2016 / 11:19 pm

      Sweet.

    So cute I literally teared up! Now if we could just get, say, a tawny frogmouth cuddling the cockatoo, and an eagle owl cuddling the tawny frogmouth, and a little parakeet being cuddled by the conjure, and a hummingbird being cuddled by the parakeet, and me cuddling all of them! That would be ideal.

    • Haha September 30, 2016 / 10:33 pm

      Matryoshka birds!

      • Murray C. September 30, 2016 / 11:21 pm

        Explain, please?

        • allein 🐾 September 30, 2016 / 11:50 pm

          Russian nesting dolls

          • Haha October 1, 2016 / 1:03 am

            A matryoshka doll also known as a Russian nesting doll, or Russian doll, is a set of wooden dolls of decreasing size placed one inside another.

            I just changed doll for bird. 🙂

            This explanation is doubly appropriate because of “nesting” dolls.

            • Murray C. October 1, 2016 / 10:51 am

              I have some of them just didn’t know the Russian name. Sort of embarrassing since my husband is half Russian. And, yes, excellent punning.😉
