Syd keeps disappearing

I was calmly working away on my laptop and suddenly looked up and Syd was gone.

I called - nothing. I called again louder knowing he couldn't be far away. Nothing! I carefully stood up and looked carefully where I was putting my feet - Syd has taken to walking around on the floor recently - nothing! Again I called and yet again beginning to really wonder where he could have disappeared to. Suddenly a little head popped out with a beady eye soundlessly telling me 'here I am'.

Underneath Syd's new cage is a really handy shelf and on it I keep 2 collapsible cube storage boxes which are black with his bits and pieces in. That's where he was and now this new game of hide and seek is his new obsession. The little monster!

Re: Syd keeps disappearing

Yep, they do that. Clark has his own drawer is a chest of drawers I don't use. He somehow snuggles in like a hampster or a rat under the little opening by the foot pieces...then climbs up the back, I leave that drawer open about three inches so he can get some light now.

I made sure there was nothing dangerous he can get a hold of so now it's, well, ok by me.

Re: Syd keeps disappearing

DITTO,

Pico ( GCC ) does the same thing.... walking around on the floor and suddenly disappears.... Mostly he's under the kitchen sink cabinet or gets behind the Microwave... If I don't see or hear him, I know he is hiding and up to no good..... LOL

My place is probably more kids-proof ( well bird proof ) than most houses with kids, but this little green monster always finds new places to hide....

Re: Syd keeps disappearing

With a free roaming Parrot it should be mandatory that both of you have a fully functioning contact call route in place. Your Parrot uses the contact call and you response! You use the contact call and your Parrot responses!

It is the only way to assure the safety of your Parrot. There are so many places, including dangerous places, they can get into quickly that you have to be able to find them and quickly.

I thought we had, but obviously it is at his behest rather than mine. This is the one occasion that I have so far come across where communication broke down. Because he can see me he evidently feels the call superfluous. He is coming up to a year old next month and I suspect teenage rebellion approaches! Obviously more work to be done.
