Bird Love: Bird Hate; Or, Canary Personality Profiles

Generally things don't change in the bird world round these parts, but every once in a while the urge to share feathered cuteness overwhelms.

Herein is writ the fascinating personality profiles of my wee feathered dudes.

Photobucket
My good bud Butters.
He's made several appearances on this blog, since he's the most patient of all the boys. Sweet tempered, loves to eat, and has an annoying habit of never taking baths.

Butter's orange neighbour, and constant posturing opponent, Ives.
He has no time for humans, and instead likes to stay in his cage and (during louder times) bark territorially at Butters. He has zero patience for cameratime, and so had to be held for this here portrait. And, as you can see, couldn't even keep still (yes, this was the best of the entire session).

Photobucket
The pretty-boy Mats is all squawk no action.
I think he knows he's pretty, since all he ever does is wash his face and sit moodily on his favourite perch. Here you see him pouting for the camera.

Photobucket
The Greatest Escapist Hilts.
Being the tiniest, perhaps he has that "little dog" syndrome - feels he must compensate for his size through toughness. He's always one to fly out of his cage, any chance he gets.

The tiny ones do have moxie - across all species. My Jack Russell Terrier loves to prance in front of the big dogs, but mostly when she knows they're behind a fence.

Thanks for showing the sweeties to us! We had canaries years ago, but now my husband said he doesn't want to get more until we know there is a vet nearby who treats birds ...
