I'm so sorry that your wings had to go. I had to laugh when I read your description of what happened to the veggies and fruit. Such destruction brings greyt joy to my mind :)Now I want to sink my beak into something juicy and messy. lol.
I bet you must be enjoying a break from the heat. I do believe we birdies tolerate it better than the humans do. One thing that might help with those nasty gnats that you have, is a fan blowing through the aviary. Of course only on very hot days. Mama read recently that it helps keep the bugs down. We might try it in ours because the mosquitoes, (oddly don't have a problem this year) usually sit on the ceiling of the aviary and come down to bug us.
You are right. It is HOT here. It was over a hundred today. On Sundays Mama can't get us out to the aviary until the afternoon. When she checked the temps it was already 87, so she didn't even bother taking us out. I've gone back to being picky and not wanting to stay out there for more than half an hour. So in the past few days Pepper has been out there pretty much by himself. When he's alone, he'll actually talk and whistle non-stop. Guess what we heard him practicing? "Eeeeer." I've been encouraging him and repeating matter-of-factly and oh-so-properly, "Dr. Speer." I wonder if he'll learn to say it correctly.
I have been keeping myself very busy lately. I was foraging before for my food, but the challenge has been upped and now I feel I'm working almost full time.
I almost forgot. I have a WONDERFUL story to tell you. You know that the loft I have access to holds boxes and other such packaging stuff. Sometimes things are put up there and not put away properly. Mama has no problem with me chewing a box or two on the edge. I was investigating a certain box. In the process it tipped over and I fell down, with the box landing on top of me. Pepper flew straight across the room, turning at last second and clonking to the floor. I flew right back into the loft to see what else I could do. I found a whole string of air bags about 5' in length. Not long after, I was careening around the room, air bags flapping in the wind and making a wonderful crinkly sound. Pepper held onto his perch for dear life and Pring shot off her eggs, crest raised and her body swaying back and forth. Oh it was so much fun. Mama was doubled up with laughter and disappointed the camera was not on me. It was GREYT!
My nights have continued to be OK. Last night I took more feathers than Mama would want, but it wasn't too bad. I'm not afraid of going to bed either.
Good night my precious Kelly and thanks for the good night kiss. P*>X<*K
