Re: There and Back Again: A Conure's Tail

Today I took my dear sweet Finley out and about around town. 1st we went to Petco to get some Zupreem and a toy he liked. People in Petco swooned over him and one of the workers there apparently has an evil Nanday Conure who bigger than Finley...so she said. I'm a bit curious though... perhaps I should have offered to take a look at her bird and try to train him up. Hmmm perhaps in the future.
Then we went to CVS to pick up a prescription and some Reese's (for me ofc).
Next to Game Stop to get a gift for my son. The shop worker there just treated us normal which I think is nice instead of asking me "is it real? Does it talk?".
Up after that to the Post Office to send the thing for my son along with his prescription ezema cream.
Lastly, we went to Starbucks where we're basically celebrities. A barista there said are home she has a green cheek and a cocktail but was still gushing over Finley so I wonder if it's maybe her parents birds.
So yeah that was our day out! Finley was on a harness the whole time and he loved it. He loves going places with his mommy. He's so handsome and draws a crowd everywhere he goes.

Re: There and Back Again: A Conure's Tail

Knowing that our dear Fin is with you lifts my heart every time I think about it. It truly does.
I bet that our little rooster felt himself to be quite the bird about town!

Re: There and Back Again: A Conure's Tail

I'm glad it does Gail! I really do have to take extra special care for him because he's so difficult but I find if I do it right he definitely improves and is much happier and so am I.
Something funny that happens is on the weekends I get up late and my husband has already gotten the birds up and I go around and say good morning to each of them individually. I often get scolded by my husband because I spend wayyyy too long saying good morning to Finley or when I'm done with good mornings I go back to Finley and gush over him way too long and make the other birds sad. Lol. Oh Finley how I love thee!

Re: There and Back Again: A Conure's Tail

Young Northie is doing well after her toe removal surgery. I'm surprised she isn't upset about it but I guess she's young enough to have adapted quickly. She's a bit of a weirdo in general...kind of like Ollie who's cautious, always aware and scared of various items in the house.
Paris and Finley are more alike... they're sort of off in lala land most of the time.
Boy has it been a weird month. I've been to the emergency vet 3 times in March and once in April. Ollie with his eye, Paris with breaking her feathers and night frights(x2) and North with her toe. I'm so lucky to be in a position where I don't even have to question if I should go to the vet or not or drive hours to find one...I can just go anytime 24/7.
Other than that things have been good here. Finley is getting much much better with everything but obviously something is still not right with him but I can tell he is doing his best. He has only had like one freaking out where he luckily didn't physically injure himself and I was able to intervene before it got too bad. He's a good boy.
Ollie is kind of on my sh*t list right now because he bit North's toe but I forgave him because I think he actually does feel bad about it because he saw my crying my eyes out while I was trying to stop the bleeding and he doesn't like it when I cry.
Paris...hmmm... she's such a good girl but she's super frantic at times and gets excited and jumps off her cage top. I usually see her do it or hear her do it..well Sunday I did neither. I went I to the kitchen nook and saw that she wasn't on her cage top and I had Finley in my hands. I saw her on the floor and I stepped to get her and she ran under my foot. Yeah so I kind of sort of stepped on her tail. Luckily she wasn't hurt and she only lost some of her tail feathers but was scared to death. So was I...
Well that's pretty much an update of everyone. I hope the coming days doesn't lead to more vet visits!

Re: There and Back Again: A Conure's Tail

Okay, I'm sooooooooooooooo bad about imputing hidden machinations to my little friends, but I SWEAR that the Finster is looking coy and smug that HE wasn't the villain in the whole North toe scandal...
Innocence must be a real rush for that little rooster.
Love you, Fin. Stinker.

Re: There and Back Again: A Conure's Tail

Oh and Ollie is even more on my sh*t list because he pooped his morning poop on my for the 1st time in about 2 1/2 years this morning. Ugggg so much for saying sorry, thanks Ollie.

Re: There and Back Again: A Conure's Tail

This morning was interesting. Finley was being quite off. I usually take the birds downstairs for their morning poop in the sink and then I give them a small amount of nuts,seeds and fruits/veggies as their morning breakfast. Until I put the bowls in the cage and they're eating they all scream in unison for me to get the butt in gear and do it faster. Finley LOVES to eat...loves it. So to my surprise today he did not want to eat but instead if I would go to his cage to see what he was up to he'd climb into my shoulder and that NEVER happens unless I accidentally dumpped his breakfast on my shoulder. Lol. So I would oblige him for a few minutes then put him back on top of his cage to eat. Still no ..he climbed on to me again and again...he also seemed to be looking towards the ground part of the time which is strange. Have you ever seen a bird look at the ground for 5 minutes straight? Well let me tell you... it's weird. So after about a half hour of this dance I put him back and he starts eating like normal. Also he and Ollie have both been eerily quiet today.... something is amiss....

Re: There and Back Again: A Conure's Tail

Ack! I always get all superstitious and worked up when stuff like this happens. Back in New Mexico, out-of-the-blue weird bird behavior sometimes meant earthquakes!
