An outbreak.. of Preening!

In the last week, George has started preening Sky. Sky has never preened another budgie or been preened by one.

Yesterday, we noticed that Sky was preening Blithe, as though he had decided to pass the knowledge on that preening is great.

I managed to get a photo of Sky preening Blithe, it’s not a great photo as I had to be quick!

The other budgies seemed to be just as astounded as we were.

    Preening is by far the most beautiful behavior among birds, I think, because the preener seems to enjoy it just as much if not more than the one being preened. Happy New Year!

    This is so sweet. I love to watch mine preen each other and also enjoy it when the male flirts with my females and makes a big show of it. Budgies are the best!

      I can confirm that budgies are definitely the best 🙂
