Warm Hawaii sun.

The bf and I went to my parents house for lunch today and we brought Mika along for the ride.  He got to enjoy lots of time out in my parents beautiful backyard soaking in the warm Hawaii sun (with ample palm shade as not to overheat) while I stuffed myself with thin crust pizza.  ;) 

Both Mika and Rappy got new travel cages recently.  They still aren't complete, as I'm waiting for color-coordinated rope perches and toys from Grey Feather Toys.  Everything in Mika's cage will be yellow and Raptor's will be all green to match the cage bases.  Yes, I'm a bit OCD.  LOL

Parents gorgeous backyard.

Mika's new travel cage.

Loving the sunlight!

Whenever possible, we take the birds out with us because it gets them used to being in their travel cages, going on car rides, and being in different environments - it also gives them extra time in the sun.  Mika has been going all over the place with me for 10 years now so he's a veteran and never get phased.  Raptor, on the other hand, is still not completely used to it.  Raptor stayed home from this trip because he often freaks out with strangers and we didn't want him to thrash around in his travel cage with my family being around.  He will be coming out with us tomorrow though and I'll take pics then.


  1. Hey! Just found your blog :) Love the photos!! We're very jealous of your climate :)

  2. Thanks, Coco!!

    There are several downsides to living in Hawaii (cost of living, overpopulation, roach/ant problem, traffic) but we definitely wouldn't want to live anywhere else, and I'm sure the birds agree! ;) I am VERY thankful that the boys get to have direct sunlight daily.

  3. I love the pics! For some reason I just feel all happy when i see birds outside (and cheerful carriers certainly do not hurt!)- maybe because I enjoy sitting outside with mine so much, maybe because I just enjoy seeing happy birds! Mika looks very cute in his sunny personal transport.

  4. Colour-coordinated rope perches..should have guessed, lol!
    Lovely pictures :)
