Catching some rays

George_fluffed_up_in_sun Especially during molting season, George likes to sit in the sun and fluff up his feathers. I'm not sure whether the warmth sooths his irritated skin, or if the sunlight wards away mites. Whatever the reason, it looks rather odd when he's in that pose. He and Princess remain in a low-key, restful state for the time being: no singing, no nest-building, and relatively little romancing.
