Trying to bathe on the go!

Scout's morning routine is to accompany me while I feed and water all the inside birds, and sample everyone's food, eat out of the big bowl, and in general be a little boy. He often hovers over my head as I walk, uses my hair as a slide to slide down my face and into whatever I am working on, etc. Well today he was trying to bathe in every water dish - while I was walking! I have tried many times and many ways to get him to take a bath, with no luck. Well today, he wanted one! So, after forcibly removing him from Sully and Acu's water dish so that THEY could have it, I grabbed a dish for him and put him on the table. He was glad I finally took the hint!

Re: Trying to bathe on the go!

he has not before this. All of my GCCs can fit in their water bowls, and Blue uses hers as well when she wants a bath, but Scout has not ever before, and he also rejected sink baths/showers and showering with me. I guess he will just let me know when it is time!

Oh SiverSage, that is one beautiful bird! Seems like scout was testing the water first hehehe. The video played fine for me, took it a second to load.
Thanks
