Luna was the explorer right from the beginning, curious and confiding. She showed Bo, how to get some foxtail millet, and so both Lineolated Parakeets were tame quite fast. She never was afraid towards me, but observed very carefully all the time.
It was her, who enjoyed the first shower in their new home, while Bo was watching the spectacle mistrustfully. But she didn't bargain for the fact, that she couldn't fly quite well in that wet condition. So the first flying attempt after the shower ended in a book shelf. Meanwhile all my birds love it to get a shower, and before starting to fly they preen themselves and their partners.
In my flock Luna is the most inconspicuous bird. Even if she sometimes helps Bo with his defence and displacing attempts, altogether she is very peaceful and not aggressive towards anybody without a reason. She is not clumsy like Balu or Feebee, above-average tame like Gizmo and is able to fly.
Luna is sized on an average and has got a proper plumage. Just one of her claws at the outer, front toe of her right foot is twisted in a right angle. Probably that happened in the nesting box. But it doesn't seem to bother her.
