The flight of the BB..

Sponsored Links
..all of a sudden in the last few day's, BB has taken flight. He used to do a lot of walking or quick hop's and a flap flap. Lately however he has been actually FLYING from his roof top to me on the couch or from the counter top to my HEAD. Last night he took off from my shoulder in the kitchen,flew in a circle and HOVERED for a few seconds,only to land,with percision,on my hand.

I guess after nearly two years,he finally discovered his arms

Re: The flight of the BB..

BB flies and gets an upgrade to First Class!!

Amy had better be nice or he'll drop little "bombs" of pens, and other small objects!

Re: The flight of the BB..

Tonight he was back at it. He was on his roof top while I'm on the couch about 12 feet away. I said to him "c'mon BB c'mon"..and he repeats c'mon...c'mon..and he squats a little and stands back up..and squats again ( like he's thinking about it lol) and I keep it up with c'mon c'mon..and he did! Right on my shoulder..no crashing into me head or face...like he's been doing it for years.
NOW when he is on my shoulder he climbs the back of my neck to get on my head
He has flown from his digs to Amy's play top..I'm getting nervous about that. Even though Amy has never shown any aggression toward Beebs,he does get all poofy and a flared tail...excited.
Seems like he is really checking out his new found ability..just took off from my shoulder and flew from this room into the living room and landed on top of my tv...a good thirty feet away.
I'm really wondering how,all of a sudden,he decided to do this flapflap thing,and how he learned to be so good at it..
Whst's he been doing behind my back?



Jim
