Happiest Couple of Green-Cheeked Parakeets 

Hi folks, weather is warm and comfortable on sunny days recently isn't it?
Today, we focus on a couple of parrots that looks very happy on such a warm sunny day.

Here are two Green-Cheeked Parakeets, Haru(female) and Kotarou(male).

Here's somewhat scientific description;
-common name; Green-cheeked Parakeet
-scientific name; Pyrrhura molinae(Psittaciformes, Psittacidae)
-distribution; restricted from eastern to mid Bolivia, South America
-habitat; In forest from low wetland to hilly areas

These two have been dealing with visitors in a sunny corner of the Parrot Zone. They are well fed with pieces of apple given to them by visitors, and they get sleepy.....

.....and Kotarou has fallen asleep, leaning against Haru.
Haru also looks comfortable in her sleep.

Oh, Haru is so sleepy that she has bent her neck!



You can see how they are in good harmony while they are preening each other.

Kotarou; Haru, shall I preen you?
Haru; Yes please, thanks.

Kotarou started preening Haru from its head.....


Kotarou; I'll scratch wherever itches. Any request?
Haru; Not in particular.....ohh, I'm sleepy.....

Just see how comfortable Haru looks!



Though they look lax in pictures we've shown so far, they are willing to deal with visitors when they have to be.
They turn very active when they have visitors in front of them. And when they are dying to have food, they show a peculiar behaviour.

Here's a video clip.




Very cute, aren't they? They look as if they were rattling off "please give me a dice of apple, apple, apple!"

In the end, it looks like a kind of fight over which one will get to eat the food first. Hey Haru and Kotarou, stop fighting, for there is enough food for both of you.

This humorous behaviour takes place whenever the parakeets are hungry. Please don't forget to feed them during your visit.
