Hi Morgan,
today, mum went for an indoor swim & feels so much better for it! She thinks, the old jet-lag is finally making it's way out!!!
She wants to tell her first story from the holiday & this one is her favorite one, b/c it's got to do with...what else than.... parrots!!!!!
So here it goes: They mainly stayed in mum's home town, where they all liked it very much & all their friends live.
There's a little animal park there with lots of parrots & mum went & visited them every day.
She befriended 3 of them really well. There were mainly amazons, African grays & a lot of Australian native parrots & parakeets, but the one she liked best was a smallish, blue headed amazon. She gave him the name 'Pico' & he started listening to it pretty soon.
Whenever mum approached his aviary, he started to whistle so cute to her & got really excited . He usually sat right in the back of his enclosure, but when mum called out to him, he flew all across the aviary & landed right in front of her (inside the bars of course!)
When he was close enough to mum, he'd bend down his head for mum to scratch his head, neck & chin. He seemed to be really enjoying it & closed his eyes. Whenever she made a move & walked away from him, he'd start to sing & whistle in such b'ful tunes, that mum had to come back to him! When it was time to say bye bye, he let out this mournful cry, as if to say, don't leave me!
There was another, slightly bigger, yellow sided amazon in the same aviary, he (she) was a bit more shy & reserved, but also got interested in mum & what she was doing with 'Pico.' So he (she) eventually came over as well & wanted to be scratched, but 'Pico' wanted nothing of that & got so jealous that he bit him & chased him away, so naturally mum felt very sorry for that one & worked out a strategy. She made them both sit on a perch near her, but apart from each other & scratched them simultaneously, one with each hand! Peace, at last! In another aviary was a very cute white, yellow-crested cockatoo, who always came up to mum & wanted to just lick on her fingers & be scratched as well. He never made a sound, only looked at her with his big, black, shiny eyes! It melted mum's heart!
In the same cage was a very large B&G macaw, who's over 50 years old. Even he came up to mum & let her scratch his head, but only once!! Mum was very impressed by that & he also once, held her finger with his claw!
She's got pics of all of them & also took some videos, but as mentioned before, it'll take some time for them to be posted! Hope you liked that first story & mum promises there are more to come!
That's all for today! Here's a vote for you & a big hug,
Jivu ♥
