This was how it was in the beginning. The babies stayed in their little "clique" and Buster was the "outsider". Buster pulled out all the tricks to charm them. He is very charming so it wasn't long before...
...Ah Scritches from Baby #1! Just the right spot! Buster was so cute. He kept trying to get the babies to scritch his little neck.
You can see the difference in coloring on their wings. When Buster was younger he was more blue on his back.wings, but as he molted out he has gone more grayish which I find is very normal in the blue males. The babies seem to have a tighter scallop effect that is very iridescent and deep in coloring on their backs/wings.
Buster has infiltrated the "clique". You can really see the lovely
scalloping on the wings of baby #2.
Buster came over for a little wing trim. Once he realized that I was going to "ground" him he took off and showed off his aerodynamics skills. He gracefully landed on my mantle!
I think these would make great Christmas Cards for Buster's family this year!
He was so proud of himself!
Buster brought me some nice freeze dried fruit for the babies & I sent him home with a couple of toys & some nice fruity seed mix! I am so proud of the beautiful boy he has become!
