Hi Again Sweet Pea
So you're an only bird. I gotta confess, there are days I'd have to admit envying you. You never have t'share your parronts with any other feathered kids! There is the cat and dogs though, so you still need t'share once in awhile, even if you are Queen of the House. (Way t'go on that status, Sweet Pea. Do BIRDS RULE or what!) You have an amazing vocabulary. I am totally impressed. I'd love t'hear you sing your songs. Have they ever been recorded? Are you on YouTube perhaps?? I have all of five words to m vocab so have t'get creative when I need to communicate a thought or need. "Bye bye" is one of them. Just tonight after giving my dad a loud squawk for getting too close to my mom, I got told that one more outburst like that would get me sent to my room. "It'll be bye-bye for you, RaneBeau," mom said in her sternest voice. I looked at her, looked at dad and said very sternly, "Bye bye." ... as in, he's the one that can leave! Mom shouldn't have laughed but she did. "Bye bye" said sweetly is my way of saying good night. Mom says it's one of her favorite parts of the day, hearing me say that all soft and sweet. I bet your voice is absolutely precious, tiny and darling. It is, isn't it.

Like your dad, my mom feels that animals are a very special part of God's world. We can make life here more meaningful, more joyful, but only for those humans who truly open their hearts and minds to interacting with God's creatures. I'm so glad you've found the home and family who values you for what you truly are, Sweet Pea; an amazing, wonderful bird!

You asked if I've ever bitten my mom. Sadly, yes. At the time when I was adopted, I'd gone about 8 years without being handled so I was way out of practice with interacting with humans. It took several years before this beak was trustworthy and in that time, there were lots of bites, pinches and bruising. I haven't bit in a long time although just t'day I gave mom a good bonk on the wrist which I haven't done in ages. It's just a solid tap with a closed beak but it's reminiscent of days gone by when I would act out when things weren't going my way. I thought I was being taken back to my room when I wasn't quite ready t'go so I tried to give directions with a poke on the arm. It didn't work. I got ushered back to my room where despite the offer of a kiss, I got left behind. Poooor me! The Greenwing gall has not managed to bite anyone, but that's not t'say she hasn't tried. She has fear issues and sometimes lunges if she's caught off guard. So far, so good for mom at reading Reba's body signals.

You also asked how many birds I live with. I'm almost embarrassed t'say but here goes; 1 other macaw, 3 Greys, 1 DYH Amazon, four conures, (all different kinds), 12 cockatiels, 17 parakeets, five Society finches and 1 canary. Many are rescues or rehomes, myself included with only one of the Greys being a purchased bird. Mom never intended to have more than her first Afri
