May I Introduce? His Name Is Gobbin

Gobbin arrived at noon. His “parents” dropped him off in his cage. Gobbin is a Conure Parrot.

But when I get near him and talk to him he’s coming real close and his beak is grabbing my mustache. But he’s not ripping at it, just exploring that grey hairy stuff.

Molly is flabbergasted about the new live-in comrade. She’s jealous too.

I get close to Gobbin and Molly is sticking her head right up between us. And the rest of the time Molly is right in front of Gobbin’s cage looking straight up, trying to figure out what this birdy is doing here.
Are we having fun here? You bet we have.

  1. Molly is curious. She wants to know who her new sister is. Maybe the you'll have two barkers in your family now.

  4. Great photo of the three of you. I love birds and have owned 2 parrots and a cockatiel in years past. Sadly, due mostly to my nomadic nature, I have had to find other homes for each of them. But they are amazing in their affection, character and intelligence. Maybe I will stop traveling someday and finish my years with a feathered companion. BTW, there is a great documentary about conures called "The Parrots of Telegraph Hill."

  5. Gobbin is so pretty but let Molly know she is still my most favorite beautiful girl. Our friends have a cockatiel who travels all over with them and we get to bird sit sometimes. So fun.
