George at six years, and counting

George, threads Yesterday marked the sixth anniversary of the day we bought George (yes, as in Inauguration Day), so we consider it like a birthday. He has started singing again over the past week or two, but not very loudly or frequently. He has also started to molt, which is typically when birds are at a low energy level and therefore less inclined to sing or engage in other mating displays. For her part, Princess continues to flirt in the window, but not as vigorously as before. Nevertheless, they are both quite healthy and content, to our immense delight.

Here George is playing with the cotton thread that Princess uses to build her nest.
