Move over, Romeo + Juliet

What's in a name? that which we call t3h cute
By any other name would be as cute;
So fl00fy would, were it not fl00fy call'd,
Retain that dear perfection which it owes
Without the title...

Oh my goodninks! They're gorgeous. Reminds me of my Dutch friends bird Ricki, i'd lay my head on the arm of the sofa and he'd hop up and preen all over my face and make little chuttling noises. Adorkable.

Picture-wise, it's interesting seeing the monochrome bird next to the color one. It's like that noir effect.

"The dame reached over and painted me one against the cheek before she sang like a canary. That's just one of the stories in the big apartment. I'm a bird, and this is one of them."

LOVEBIRDS!! Lovebirds! lovebirds!

"A bird and his birdette
shall not be parted by
colour, or lack thereof
for in the blush of one's
cheek shines the blush
of the other's love."

I'm confused...Why is the whole picture in color except the one widdle love-bird is NOT??? Part of me wonders if it's a NEW color??? (gray???)(his beak IS in color...)
We had lovebirds years ago --- precious little guys, but lovebirds *are very naughty* little things!!! &:o)

you guys r silly
 |  May 08, 2006 at 10:07 AM

The gray one is probably a female - they tend to have less color than males. Her beak *is* in color, and her cheeks have a faint pink tinge to them.

Keep up the birdie pictures! :)

Mercutio, in Romeo and Juliet:

"Appear thou in the likeness of sigh;
Speak but one rhyme, and I am satisfied!
Cry but 'Ay me! pronounce but 'love' and 'dove':
Speak to my gossip Venus one fair word..."

And last - but absolutely *not* least, The Reflections:

"Our love's gonna be written down in history
A-Just like Romeo and Juliet

(Ooh-ooh-oop)
(Dooo, doot, doot, doot, doot, doot, doot, doo-doop)..."

What stars do spangle heaven with such beauty,
As those two eyes become that heavenly face?

"'Tis not through envy of your happy lot, /But being too happy in thine happiness, /That thou, light-wingèd Dryad of the trees, /In some melodious plot /Of beechen green, and shadows numberless, /Singest of summer in full-throated ease. . . . /Thou wast not born for death, immortal Bird!"

ElfOwl, could this be by John ParaKeats? (Sorry, I could not resist!)

Oops, sorry jaypo - I thought you were ElfOwl, though the statement's still true. ;)

I always preferred Cyrano myself:

"A kiss is a message too intimate for the ear, infinity captured in the bird's brief visit to a feeder, secular communication with an aftertaste of heaven, the wings rising in the air to flutter its name on a lover's beak: 'Forever'"

I have lovebirds..Im glad others appreciate the cute

Erin
 |  May 08, 2006 at 07:27 PM

Dangit, E.C.! I *knew* I was missing *something* good. Mainly I dropped those lines cuz Ode to a Nightingale is one of my favoritist po-ems EVAR. EXCELLENT pun. I'm only disappointed I didn't think of it. I am, after all, the girl who named her car Otto. :-P

ElfOwl
 |  May 08, 2006 at 08:18 PM

Just so's y'all don't think I've completely flipped out, that quote up there was a couple of lines from "Romeo & Juliet" by Dire Straits, from the Making Movies album. And by "hop the pond," I meant, wrong continent, try the other side of the ocean.

Not feeling terribly well understood today.

Theo
 |  May 08, 2006 at 08:28 PM

"I am, after all, the girl who named her car Otto."

Argh!!! Actually, I'm kinda surprised the parakeats thing occurred to me, since I'm really *not* all that punny.

Theo, I knew you were talking about England... 'Fraid the Dire Straits ref was lost on me, thouugh.

E. Collison
 |  May 08, 2006 at 08:35 PM

"I am, after all, the girl who named her car Otto."

I wouldn't expect anything less from a 'Lady Writer'.

Aubrey

The "grey" lovebird is a colour variety called Dutch Blue. Lovebirds are not sexually dymorphic; males and females are identical and it's virtually impossible to tell them apart without having them professionally sexed. My lovebird is twelve years old, and I STILL don't know if it's a male or female! It doesn't matter unless you plan to breed, though; the personalities aren't gender-based.

The birds are anerable and the comments are great.
Theo for quoting from one of my favorite Dire Straits songs I send you this,

Grasshopper:

I believe that Truffle, from The Daily Kitten, achieves at least one rule of cuteness - i.e. wee teeny tail. Now, Truffle also features Front Paws Close Together, which I thought was another Rule of Cuteness (ROC). However, I did not see it featured.

Awww....reminds me of my late lovebird, Hoku. He loved to snuggle with his parakeet friend Tiki, and they learned how to make each other's little chirpy noises!

Every once in a while, even though Tiki now has a new parakeet girlfriend, he'll still jump up and down on his perch and make lovebird noises.
