Here is a pic from a few nights ago. Salty eating his chop, well, wearing his chop, with some Avicakes mixed in. Looks good on him, no?

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Mr. Rival took a look over my shoulder and is now howling about 'why is a bird cute with food all over his face, but let me get one tiny cookie crumble stuck on my lip and...' and on and on, yadda yadda yadda...

You're GORGEOUS, Salty-o! Chop on!

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Oh thats not even that messy, sometimes you cant even see his nostrils, like when he is eating yams. We expect him to sneeze out half a serving.

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Right now, Salty is just about going to bed, with Mrs Wrench having administered his training the last few nights, as the band is down in Florida playing at a pirate festival. Amazingly, Salty actually did most of his tricks for her, but not all, and Geri said he would just walk to the edge of the training table and throw the prop ( ball, cup, whatever) over the side, to indicate "I'm DONE" , something he never does with me.
I was able to make friends with a Senigal parrot and a Severe macaw down here, curtesy of one of the other pirates who travels with her birds. Both in excellent feather, took me awhile, sitting quietly by their cages and waiting with a treat for each. Her Seni really talks well. While it was fun to meet these two, it made me miss the Salty boy, but we'll be flying out tomorrow early AM, and I'll be home in time to wake him up and hear his "Good Morning".

Re: Right now Salty is.....

He DOES have the most amazing smile. Looks genuine, too. Sincere and affectionate, unlike some birds. One bird.

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Wow, Salty did a 180 on me yesterday, after we got back. He seemed glad to see me and then administered one of the worst bites he has ever handed out. He had not bitten me like this in 6 or more months. But then after showing him the blood coming out from my hand and saying ' look what you did to Daddy?' and letting him just sit on his boing for awhile, he did a 180, and was begging me for a scratch, and a little treat. He made up with me and I forgave him, how could I not?
And as if to show he meant it, the nights training session was so smooth, and he put his heart into it, even did his harness training with gusto. It all made up for the pain and blood. I told him I called it even steven .
