Kiwi's out and about thread 2018

Sponsored Links
Going to try one of those mega threads for chronicling all of Kiwi's outings this year instead of posting individual threads. We'll see how it goes

Yesterday was the first real warm and sunny day this year I've been able to take he who is mostly green out. He was pumped when I brought out the pak-o-bird over the weekend for steam cleaning. Immediately upon being placed in the car, he went through his full range of happy noises and as soon as we hit the freeway, he was making his high pitched "weeeeet" noises and spinning circles (I couldn't pay too much attentions as I was driving but I caught a glimpse and certainly heard it!). Kiwi is pretty funny in the car. He likes to go fast and has a very strong opinion when stuck in traffic, stopped at a rail crossing or long red light etc... It's rather amusing to drive with him

We ran a few errands then went to the Bird Hut to say hello to the other birdies and get some goodies. It was really LOUD in there, which Kiwi was none too pleased with. He's a quiet bird and is used to a quiet home. He was a bit rattled at the volume of 20-30 shouting parrots (I was a bit rattled by the racket as well! Made me REALLY appreciate how quiet Kiwi is comparatively). For some reason, they have a lot of large macaws right now and I never realized how loud CAGs can go either because there was one in there keeping pace with the Big Macs in jungle call volume! I know, it was rude to do right in front of him, but they have this darling elderly YNA who is not for sale, but she does have a sign by her cage saying she likes scritchies. I think she would have had me there all afternoon rubbing her little head. So sweet! The other one who's extremely loud voice got me was an alexandrine parrot, who I can only presume was jealous I was scritiching the YNA, but his sign did not say he liked to be petted. I rather like having all my fingers more than petting strange birds and those big alexandrines have sizable beaks They also had a big DYH who was quite interested in me and an all around gorgeous bird (NO I am not considering purchasing him) and several blue fronts and yellow napes for sale as well. While Kiwi did not come home with a new friend, he did come home witch several new toys, some cuttle bones and a whole bunch of those Chinese finger traps he likes to rip up.

After we got home, something was out like a light for the rest of the afternoon until hubby got off work. Never a bad thing to wear em out and have a few hours of peace and not being doomed by a certain

More tales of Kiwi's outings to follow!

Re: Kiwi's out and about thread 2018

With the 'Star' status of Kiwi and his Mother's touch for dry humor, this Thread will likely need that Warning Sign: Danger: Drinking, holding liquids and /or having liquids within arms reach is Not Recommended!

I know that a certain DYH Amazon will be logging in 'after-hours' to keep-up with his partner in behind the door covert activities of their group: Amazons Unite!

Star status. Pshhh... don't say things like that. He has more than a big enough ego However, do be careful where you set your glass if it's not right beside you because while you're reading this thread, a certain yellow headed amazon is liable to go dip a food covered potty beak in it for a drink

"NO, sir, officer... our amazons are definitely, positively NOT in fact planning a summertime Doritos truck jacking at beak-point Why ever would you ask such a question?"

Don't be too Jealous. It's right back to chilly and rainy today. Yesterday was a freak nice day in early March, but it typically isn't much good parrot weather here until mid-April.

Tell Amy it won't be long before she can go out too!

Re: Kiwi's out and about thread 2018

I think you'll like having a 'home thread', just remember to write about all the good stuff, so when you feel like tripping down memory lane, you realize what a swell parrot Kiwi is.
