new girl in town

It has been over two weeks since Nyota, the world's only peachfronted peachface lovebird, has come to town. Not a classic 30 day quarantine but it's difficult for me to believe that a tiny bird who survived Hurricane Isaac could have all that much wrong with her, so I'm slowly allowing the other birds to become aware of her. On the morning of Sunday, September 30, I walked onto the bird porch with Nyota on my shoulder for the very first time.

She immediately picked out the dominant bird and flew at Courtney. Yikes. He merely looked annoyed and didn't even bother to squawk from behind the safety of his hardware cloth. But I am coming to conclude that Nyota is an odd combination of bashful and aggressive. She has never bitten, or even threatened to bite me, but she has certainly attempted to lay claim to the other birds' territory. It will bear watching, and I will need to be very careful.
