Parrot of the Month 🏆
Because the temps today were in the low 50's, I decided to harness Salty up and go visit his Mommy (Geri) in the re-hab facility has been in since mid-October, to cheer her up a bit. Also in preparation for the presentation I am making in March to the local bird club. He was a bit hit with the residents and staff, and he was very cool about all the strangers in strange surroundings. Cool UNTIL one of the staff members tried to touch his tail feathers (she might have even actually made contact). He let out a typical Amazon scream and everyone jumped back a few feet. I guess I'll have to do more desensitizing trips there and other places, weather and temps permitting, before March - I really would like to bring him along to the presentation.
