Hey Pretty Girl!
Isn't it amazing how each of us parrots are so different in so many ways, and yet similar in others. There's somethin' sweet about you being your Mama's baby. It's easy t'see why that's true. Too bad your beak is so strong that your love-nips are actually painful to the one that you love. Sometimes I grab hold of mom's thumb or finger with the idea I'm going to "feed" her something and end up holding on too tight. I know I have to do that because I know she's going to try and get away, but I don't want her to leave before I give her my gift of love. It's sweet that you liked being touched all over. I allow pretty much anything to be done to me with the exception of my tail; it doesn't like being touched. Mom will playful pet it every now and then but I always look at her like, "Must you?" It sounds like just you and Greenie are the only ones that enjoy lots of contact. Thank goodness the other macaws will step up for your Mama when she asks. That makes it a lot easier to do things for them. It's a good thing Reba will step up and behave whenever she's asked to because she's terrified of the transport stick. Used to go into a panic just seeing it picked up. Mom could easily believe that she'd been hurt or beat by a stick in her first home but she met the people and they seemed so nice, so caring about Reba and her B&G brother. In the two years Reba's been here, she's managed to trust the stick enough to touch it with her beak without any fear. If I'm asked to step up on it though, Reba thinks something bad is going to happen to me and starts wailing and flapping her wings. It's sad to see her so concerned. Little by little though she's making progress and learning that nothing bad is going to happen because of that oak stick.

Boy, listen to me ramblin' on again. I get here and just can't stop talkin'! I loved hearing about your flock, Scarlet. You have such a beautiful family and a wonderful mom. I always smile when I think about all of you...

Happy Sunday, Sweetie.
