Merlin, my Bronze-Wing Pionus, enjoys monitoring my progress as I make dinner for us all. Our routine rarely varies, so the last week or so which has had me stuck at work later than normal has upset us quite a bit. Tonight, Merlin has decided to keep a very close watch so that I don’t forget anything.
Nekoka makes sure I have not forgotten to add some carrots and olives to my dinner. He is so considerate!
He wanted me to toss in some parrot too, but Merlin skedaddled away to my shoulder for safety.
As you can see, we all enjoyed the salad immensely. Bandit my Nanday preferred the bean dish however. When I picked up the camera he retired to my shoulder so I didn’t get any pictures of him munching down tonight.
Merlin makes sure there are no left overs. Anything the parrots don’t eat goes on the floor.
While I don’t mind occasionally having to put in some extra hours at work, it really does upset the routine and I miss the time with my flock while there is light in the day. They get especially cranky if they don’t get any fly time. Both my parrots are flighted and they love their time out of the cage. I try very hard to keep their sleep schedule intact, so when I am late getting home, they get shorted. Only one more day though, and it is weekend time… and that means lots of playtime for the flock, the cats, and me!
