All the girls -- The Photo Shoot

Here's a closeup of each of the girls taken the first day they arrived. They were very cooperative with their photo shoots. Each one very definitely has their own personality!

The one with the white head still does not have a name yet, but I affectionately refer to her as "Singing Eagle" for now. Why, you ask? Because all day long she sounds like a beautiful songbird and she's so scraggly looking she reminds me of a baby eaglet... and... because she screams like you're plucking all her feathers when you pick her up! I know you'd never know it from the peaceful look on her face in the photo. Once she gets over the initial shock of being picked up, she's fine.

The nearly all black one is now "Ruby". She's mostly sweet, but she will peck at you if you do something she doesn't like. She likes to hang out with "Singing Eagle".

It's hard to tell from this picture, but this little brown girl is the smallest of the bunch. She was initially the most skiddish but has come to be quite calm and friendly. She doesn't mind being held or photographed. It took a little longer to come up with a name that fit her sassy personality and cuteness all at the same time. Thank God for my dear friend Cari who helped me figure out that her name is "Petunia".

This beautiful brown girl is "Clara". She's the biggest of the bunch and appears to be the bossiest! She's also very sweet. Her and Petunia like to hang out together. Clara is very excited about her wings and is working on figuring out exactly how they work.
