A new year of canary romance

Princess, George grass Princess gave up on the lone egg she had laid last month, and by Christmas she had already resumed her "flirtatious" ways, flapping her wings in the window and chirping in the nest. Even after all these years (almost six!), such behavior still puts George into an amorous mood, manifested by aggressiveness, affection, and some singing. They happened to be together in this tuft of "grass" this evening, and the lamp light made for a good photo op. That stuff grew from the stray bird seeds that end up in the flower pot.
