Funny, Snoopy reacts exactly the same way to a car ride. She does the same thing in a boat -- LOVES it! As far as her daily routine, her favorite thing is to greet my husband (still in bed) in the morning, and then run around on the bed while he drinks his coffee. She checks every wrinkle in the sheets, tries to climb up the pillows to chew the headboard, and harasses the dogs who are also on the bed (and who pretty much ignore her). The only way I can get her (willingly) off the bed is to tell her breakfast is ready.

Which brings up a question. Snoopy almost never chews on wood of any kind in or on her cage. But let her near a piece of furniture and it's Katie-bar.the-door. 'Splain me that!

Re: your birds favorite activity?

Who is snoopy? several of my amazons LOVE to ride in the car, unless it gets dark, then they want their cage. Fuss,fuss,fuss. Stop the car, put them in their cage ,they're happy. Well ,almost happy, after dark ,they want to be home.

Re: your birds favorite activity?

Ekko's current obsession is a toy that Jen sent him. It is a ball that is covered with fleece, and has shredded ends. He plays with it all day, every day since he got it...rolls on the floor with it, growls and whispers to it..I have never seen him love a toy so much

Re: your birds favorite activity?

Ha.
Lokis favorite activity besides being on my shoulder or chest is EATING. She loves to eat, and gets REALLY into her food.
Wingnuts favorite activity is chewing on me.
Knuckles favorite activity is trying to preen any skin she can on my body. It's annoying and I think she needs a new hobby, like chess or something.

Re: your birds favorite activity?

With both my amazons, it's sitting outside in the tree out in front of my house. Sally goes to her spot about 3/4 of the way up the tree. Lila stays on the lower branches closer to me and Tusk...

Re: your birds favorite activity?

Mango and Kiwi both love shower time. Mango though relishes it more. His first shower, using our kitchen sink faucet, he was so enamored that he dove head first into the water! Well, he soon found out that was not the smartest thing.

They also both have a hanging castle, a cardboard box made just for them hanging from the ceiling. They love hanging out in there
