Random fun at the Lowry Park Zoo

Residents at the zoo, these macaws get to fly around from the entrance to the stage area for the bird show. I caught them flying around one morning and they stopped for a break.

The last bird of 2012 and first bird of 2013

Yesterday a lot of people were posting their last bird of 2012 and first bird of 2013. My last and first bird has been the same for 19 years. At night when I put Buddy to bed and in the morning when I wake him up before I even open the curtains. Spikey has been number 2 for the last 7 years.

Buddy will be 20 years old this spring. This was taken on Christmas day last week while visiting the in-laws in Atlanta. Buddy and Spike always make the trip with us in the car.

He loves to whistle and talk. He only says a few things. His favorites are “I love you Buddy”, “Gimmi a kiss” and “Hello Buddy”.

They love people food that’s not processed. Above, Buddy is eating tomatoes and cooked rice.

Spikey always shies away from the camera but Buddy is a ham. He loves to wave which means he wants his head scratched.
