I had to share this, it took me by surprise this morning lol.
Next door has a little dog - like the dog "nipper" in the HMV slogan listening to the old fashioned gramaphone. Anyway this dog is often in his garden next door and I guess he barks though it's not the kind of bark you notice as not often he does bark and it's low pitched. This morning after the birds had been given their breakfast I was sitting here with a cuppa and I heard next door's dog bark his usual low quietish bark and just happened to look up and there was Beau with his beak moving, yes you guessed it the dog was nowhere to be seen! So funny how close to the real thing it is lol
We went hiking this morning. The starting point was quite tough because it starts with steep slopes. After climbing the slopes, I took a break waiting for my wife to catch up. A man was coming down from the opposite direction. He saw me and Cocoa. He asked, " you have a bird on your shoulder. what bird is that?" I replied, " it's an eagle." He asked again, "how long have you been keeping this EAGLE? Hahaha! He really believes Cocoa is an eagle.
Here's a funny thing that my previous conure used to do: First he would take one small piece of those colored pellets with artificial coloring and then walk slowly accross his whol cage to the water dish which was on the other side. Then he'd leave it there and walk back accross his cage to his little toy that was his bed. Then after about 20 seconds he'd get up and walk accross the cage again and then get the soaked pellet out of his water and put it in his mouth and then go back to his bed. Then he would take his little toy or bed and drag it to where he was hidden from everyone and eat it. Lol, then right after he eats it he repeats!!!!!
That's all for now, i'll try to think of some stories that my birds that i have now do.
I went hiking again this morning, this time only Cocoa and I as my wife had to go to the wet market. I met another hiker when I was taking a break.
He asked if Cocoa was a parrot. He then asked if I had an eagle which he saw me carry around in the street. He didn't know Cocoa was the eagle he saw in the street.
