Booboo likes to groom Papug and Papug likes to be groomed. Unfortunately Papug doesn’t want to preen Booboo back… Booboo has to groom himself.

Papug is my 7 year old lutino cockatiel and Booboo is a 6 year old lovebird. Aren’t they cute? :)

    They are so adorable! I can almost hear them cooing softly… Great shot, Monika!

  • Thank you Johanne :) Booboo is a real lovebird, and just loves to groom everybody… he often wants to preen my hair too (makes for a very unique hair style! LOL…)

    So lovely, my mom will love this! She’s crazy about cockatiels

  • Thank you, I completely understand why your mom would love cockatiels, they are soooo smart :) Papug makes Booboo groom him but refuses to groom him back… LOL…

  • Thank you very much Anneka :) Yes, they are in a relationship and snuggle every day like this. I just wish Papug would groom Booboo from time to time too… :)
