Food For Thought

Ahhh, one of my favourite things, the great and noble pursuit of eating.  Today Janie was eating a pear, I wanted it, Janie gave me a piece, I wanted hers.  We had a battle, Janie gave me what was left of her pear.  This is what happened to it.  It was on the walls, on the chairs, on the floor, on Janie, it was wonderful.

You see I have discovered in the months since I have been born, that getting air to food is very important to getting the taste just right.  So the more I throw the food about the better it tastes. Janie sometimes gives me odd looks, but one day I know, she will learn this valuable lesson.

Oh before I go and get on with a little more eating I have compliled a short list of food that I should never eat, there are bound to be more, so before feeding me a new thing Janie always checks to see if it is safe for me.  She is good like that.

Bad for Me
Egg Plant (Aubergine)
Fatty Foods
Fizzy drinks
Raw onion
Apple Seeds
Grit (We don't need it in our diet)
That's all for now folks,

A Flight of Fancy

Hi again, have you all missed me?  I have been having such fun lately, as you can see my flying is coming on in leaps and bounds, I just love it.  I have told both Stuart and Janie that I do not want my wings clipped, I love to fly, and they agree with me, though in this photo of my coming into land on Janie's camera, you can't really see my wings to well, they were flapping to fast for the camera.

Maybe you can see in the background my play area window has expanded a little, with a hanging climbing frame, and another hanging bamboo pipe the other side of my Boing, you can't see it though as it's not in this picture.  My Boing also has a foraging toy near the top now so I can look for some food in it when I feel hungry, which is most of the time.  I like food!!!  Especially if someone else is eating it, that's the best food there is.

The photo also gives you another good view of my tail feathers, imagine what they will look like when they are bright red all over!!!!  I just can't wait.  Life is so good.  Till next time.
