...your Dr. automatically schedules your appt. for first thing in the morning because she knows that any other time would interrupt the bird schedule.

You say “good bird” to a human being at LEAST twice a day.

You panic when it gets too quiet.

You have a list of things to say when people ask about your bird in public.

Nobody understands you anymore.

A crossover Quaker Scuti (F), A Sun conure name TBD (?), A Cinnamon Green Cheek conure name TBD (?), and 6 budgies, Scuti Jr. (f), Blue (m), yellow (m), clark Jr. (f), and two babies name TBD (f&f).
The birds fly around the room coming inches from your head and you don't even flinch. And you don't even bother to track them everytime... unless the entire flock takes off. But then you're not worried it just looks cool.

When you're in a video conference meeting for work and someone asks what al that screachy noise is, and it takes you a while to realize it's your birds they are hearing... you didn't even notice they were making a racket anymore.

You spend hours lovingly prepping bird food but end up ordering in takeout for yourself.

You can identify any species by the noise, feathers, and sometimes eyes.

You relate to this thread.
