big baby bird

I’m supposedly a grown man, but this kind of thing always makes me squeal.

From the description on the photo’s Flickr page:

    Beemer is a blue-fronted Amazon. I got him from Bob Wheeler when he was 2 weeks old and raised him as a birthday present for my husband Jeff. Rowdy is a Pacific parrotlet. From the first time he saw Beemer, he somehow recognized that this creature towering over him was a baby, and began trying valiantly to feed him. Here he’s preening Beemer’s baby feathers.

I just think this is so great.
