You guessed it! He's a bird. My husband Tim named him Mr. Keets, a variation on parakeet, but presently his gender is in question. You see, the only way to sex a bird--that I know of, anyway--is by the color of their cere, the nares above their beak. Males have blue ceres, whereas females have white to brownish ceres. Mr. Keets is a young man; the ceres of all young'uns are blue until they turn.
|What are YOU lookin' at?|
No matter what the gender, I admit that I am already in love with the bird, mainly because whatever I take care of, I end up loving. My dog, kids, husband, and eyebrows are living proof of this adage.
