We don’t always get Cooper’s photos right on the first shot*. Here are some pics that didn’t make the cut.
* Due to the photographer and through no fault of the model, of course.

Babadook lives in the United States with Hannah.
Baba loves his bell toys, particularly grabbing them with his beak and swinging them around. He also likes to make funny noises into his food dish.
He’ll always go for a sprig or two of millet, but his secret weakness is baby carrots.
You can see more photos (and videos) of Baba on his facebook page, Babadook the Budgie.
This month’s book is The Mermaid and The Parakeet by Veronique Massenot.
The Mermaid and the Parakeet is a story inspired by a painting by Henri Matisse (The Parakeet and the Mermaid). A beautiful mermaid is stranded high in a tree by a storm. Without the water, she will not be able to survive. Luckily, the Prince of the Parakeets wishes to help her. But how will a tiny bird be able to carry a mermaid down a tree?Cooper adored this story. She loved the colorful illustrations (by Vanessa Hie) and the happy ending. Cooper also liked that it was a parakeet who saved the day by rescuing the mermaid. At the end of the book there is information about Henri Matisse, the illustrations in the book and creative process that went into making it.
