This is me, swanning off

Wow, apparently including the word “butt” anywhere in your post in any context is enough to get it hidden under “explicit content”, even if it’s just talking about fluffy little birdy butts. I was wondering why my post wasn’t showing up in the Ringneck tag…

Also of note, I generally cruise the birb tags with explicit content hidden, because seeing even one photo of a bird perched on a dick is more than I ever wanted to see. :/

I went out and got some more colors to play with! This one is a little male Indian Ringneck Parakeet. Went a lot smoother (and more quickly) than the cockatiel sculpture - my first needle-felting experiment - did. I’m hoping that as I get better at this, and faster, maybe I could start selling some of these little guys, help raise a little bit of extra money for the local parrot rescue…

I got a needle-felting kit at ComicCon yesterday so I could have a nice, low-mess, relaxing sort of art to play around with. Here’s a little tiel I just made!

I had to make do with the colors I had. Still, cuteness accomplished??

(Random ornithologist attack!)Hi there! Actually, the reason these baby finches have such weird mouths is pretty cool - vidua finches are a family of bird that exclusively lay their eggs in the nests of estrildid finches. To defend themselves, estrildid finches have evolved these mouth patterns so that the host parents can check the gaps of their babies and distinguish which ones are actually their own, and which belong to the vidua finches (although, since each species of vidua finch specializes in just one species of estrildid finch, their gape patterns tend to look very similar).

This took me so long to finish, but finally! It’s done!
Bucky Barnes from MCU, my beloved brainwashed assassin ♥
I'm still pretty much not over him and it has been months since the movie came out, and I know that at least half of the tumblr are in the same situation as me - still hopelessly drowning in the overwhelming ocean of feels that is Bucky Barnes life story.
I said it once before, this is Loki kind of tumblr-crazy, and that is really something.
Yeah, I love Bucky ♥ Also, the metal arm, let’s not forget the arm. That shit is just plain awesome.
Please enjoy ♥
P.S.: My wrist is much better btw, so I will be opening commissions soon. Also, I’m planing to make a tutorial from this picture, so, stay tuned =D

These are my favorite opals. Don’t they look like hatching dragon eggs? My mom has a bunch, but we went into an opal store and they had cases and cases of them. It looked like an incubator lol

I need these in a little nest in a tiny bird cage so bad, RIGHT NOW!!

Oh that would be so pretty!

Amazonian royal flycatchers are typically drab-looking brown birds. During courtship, however, both sexes display a brightly colored crest that is normally hidden from view. It is rare among birds for both males (red) and females (yellow) to have such colorful markings.

Hey baby, wanna see my crest?

THEY FKLY OVER TO HER SO SHELL FEED THEM IM DYING

Their little waggling heads!!

Got to see my birds again this past week! Didn’t get many photos though, in part because the tiels (Donnelly in particular) absolutely love chewing on my iPhone case, so every photo ends up looking like the second one if I take too long. XD

Argyle (napping all cuddled up with me) managed to knock out half her primaries during a night fright, so she’s no longer flying around, but she seems to be doing well and is far more chill than the Donnelbird, who is molting into his yellow face and cannot exist without being attached to a human. He also said his first word! Arguably, at least. I mean, he’s a cockatiel so “peekaboo!” comes out more like “ERRerrerr!”.

Esther is still the prettiest little budgie hen, and the most active and playful of the three. Ripley (the big fat English budgie, and still the only bird I’ve actually heard fart) and Rygel (the tiny skittish American budgie) tend to stay in the cage and twitter at each other. I was amazed to see Argyle actually present her head for Ripley to preen - traditionally they have only just tolerated each other! Maybe she will even learn to get along with Donnelly, some day.
