Adorable Photos Show The Loving Bond Of A Pair Of Pacific Parrotlets
Photographer Rupa Sutton is an owner of 4 “pocket parrots” – pacific parrotlets. They are tiny and adorable and full of personality. Lovingly Sutton calls them ‘The Floofs’, and this is their photo series that shows just how loving and intelligent they are. “My flock can be completely crazy, which is absolutely normal for Parrotlets,” shares Sutton.
“They chase and fight with each other daily and there was definitely some shoving and pushing that went on at the bath. But when needed, they come together and take care of each other.” In the beginning, they were the fantastic 4 – Sprig, Winter, River, and Rain. Unfortunately, Rain passed away.
“The daily squabbles were thrown out the door as they helped each other get through that very difficult time.” Soon a new fourth member arrived by the name Willow. The birds seem to be in pairs and have unique relationships with each other. “River and Winter are not as passionate as Sprig and Willow… but their bond is growing stronger each day. It seems there are different kinds of love and relationships with birds as there are for us humans.”
