3 quick things

Meet Yawnie, our parakeet-on-loan while we're in Japan.
He loves singing, speaks a little Japanese, and likes to sit on Brian's head.

We finally got a shot of the second crane (and a couple ducks).
Is it actually a different kind of bird?

Cute as this picture is, I can't help but wonder if my students think I'm fat!
*le sigh*


  1. Of course I must ask if Yawnie is named in honor of the Andrew Bird song, "Yawny at the Apocalpyse", which, if I'm not mistaken, is about a parakeet.

  2. You know, we're big Bird fans, but I've never heard that song! His name was given him when he was first found on the side of the road 10 years ago. After being taken home, they noticed he yawns a LOT (I've noticed it too!!). It's really cute.
