Autre is really protective of her little ones. Guapo came over and bobbed his clown head aggressively, and fixed her with a beady eye. Autre was having none of that. She drew herself up to her full height – maybe 18 inches – puffed her neck feathers all up and talked some shit.
Then she leapt up into the air, puffy and resplendent, and made that tongue-out Polynesian-dance ugly face. Whoa.
Meantime, the little guys enjoy pecking and peeping, as well as pooping in the water dish.
