Budgie Sunday - Arguments

Ive observed that my budgies (parakeets) settle arguments by making themselves taller than thier opponent. Here's an example with Secondo & Goliath:




Secondo: "Yum Yum, lovely cool fresh celery leaves, life is good!"
Goliath: "Hey Mate, scoot over a bit so I can get some too."





Secondo: "No! Go get yerself stuffed elsewhere...Mate."
Goliath: "Oh, pull yer head in, theres plenty of room on this perch for...."





Secondo: "No, means No! So p*ss orf, pigeon! See, Im bigger than you are and Im gonna kick your tail now!"
Goliath: "Bring it on!"

Secondo then got even higher up on his toes, and then, much to his chagrin...




...he fell off the perch.

Goliath: "You 'right, Mate?"

Hhahhahhhaaa, very funny Lavender ;) Jack does this with ME! He always wins when he sits on my head because I can't get higher than that! Thanks for the action shots, it makes for a very funny story :)))

It was pretty ambitious of Secondo to try and out 'tall' Goliath.

Lavender said...

OMG. I laughed out loud! What a wonderful sequence you captured. You should submit some of your posts to the I and the Bird carnival.

Bevson LOL Im so glad you enjoyed it, I couldnt believe my luck getting the whole thing on film! Especially as I was holding that celery, tehehe.
