The Kiwi bird

We bought our new condo and no longer have restrictions on hanging things, so Kiwi got a sky gym! Still need to make a ladder to the Jolly Ball, as it is yet unaccessible to him, but he can (and was) climbing the boing earlier. Hadn't even been up 5 minutes and he was already on it Pardon my phones horrendous camera




P.S.- I haven't fully decked everything out with toys yet, but he has enough to tie him over for a while.

And because I'm sure you can all relate to this one- Joe left him unattended on the table with a bowl of pasta

Kiwi thinks: "Shoot, I'm totally busted, look really innocent and cute"


"Uh o I am totally a suspect...."..... "Whaaaaaat?! You suspect meeeeeee? No!"


"Nah, it wasn't Kiwi, must've been some other marauding pasta thief"

Congrats. I'm excited for you. I know moving can be a tough transition, and having a feathered friend can be an additional challenge!

Thanks! We're really glad it's over and we don't have to think about it anymore!

Kiwi has moved around quite a bit with us and probably did in prior homes too. He's pretty easily adapted so long as we're there and his area gets set up. We have an open loft bedroom in this place and I can look down on his swing stand (which isn't near his other stuff). He's been show the bedroom and the stairs, but I don't quite think it's clicked yet for him where I am in the condo when I look over the edge and talk to him

Re: The Kiwi bird

Congratulations on the new home, April! I'm happy for you guys! I hope you can unpack faster than I did. I still have a box or two in the basement yet to be unpacked from around 10-11 years ago. Lol!

Looks like Kiwi is adapting quite well to his new surroundings and digging the new aerial components to his gym. Like Jules, I'm looking forward to seeing the completed setup.

And the infamous food thief strikes again, eh? I'm beginning to think he has an "inside man" accomplice in Joe! Lol! There's the payoff! Now you know why he lets Joe get away with darn near anything! Hahaha!

Re: The Kiwi bird

Congratulations April! I'm glad the move is over and you and your family can enjoy your new home!

Love the photos! Kiwi's corner looks great already, I bet you have lots of design plans for the new place.

Kiwi is obviously a well adjusted bird, not a feather out of place and raiding the kitchen. He looks so cute with stolen pasta on his beak.

Thanks! We actually finished unpacking this weekend. Kiwi is settling in well Had to go to Home Depot for new locks yesterday (relator suggested we change them) and he got to come along. All is now right in bird world (poor little guy hasn't been coming out much lately).

I also suspect Joe finds it hilarious to let Kiwi steal food. I'm not in agreement, but he is usually very monitored in his diet, so the occasional pasta/sandwich binge probably won't hurt him
