Re: You know you're a Parront when...

... when you obsess over minor feather curiosities...


I have often noted that his contour feathers (back, chest, legs, neck, face) are two-part, paired with a down-looking feather. There's a larger colored part, topped by a shorter, gray little fluff thingie. All his down is gray. I sometimes find larger down feathers that seem to have/had no color at all.
I give you four photos showing bottom, right , left, top.
This particular magnificent specimen is from his red-prange belly.






Flight and tail feathers do not seem to have these little down-fluffs. Google enlightens me about feathers in general, but not this particular phee-nom.

I wonder what other birds' down feathers are like...

When you come to work and realize you have bird poop on you and say "Oh well..." like it's not a thing.

You know you are a parront, when you come to work and they look all surpriced and ask "Where's the parrot?"

My coworkers are so used to me having a parrot to work, they are all surpriced if I don't bring one- happened today.

But on Thursday I'm going to bring 2 parrots to work, so I guess it makes up for it

Re: You know you're a Parront when...

You know when your a Parront when you feel bad cuz you had to trick your buddy into his cage so you can go out to run errands.

You know your a parront when you come back from errands and both you and the parrot are excited to see each other. Especially when you get a Hello Daddy from them.

When you eat pellets so your fids will too
Same with veggies.
You no longer eat chocolate in bed.

Re: You know you're a Parront when...

... when you show up at work for a meeting with a new client (and several staff) and the new client sees bird poop on your shoulder and says "Oh, no a pigeon dive-bombed you!" and the staff who KNOW you snicker and subsequently in halls and offices ask you how the "PIGEON" is doing. Finally the client gets wise and joins the mocking!
