Easy Landings

Don't mess with a fully flighted parrot's preferred perching spot.

By CB Buckley

easy landings excerptIf you aren’t familiar with the TV series “All In the Family,” you should still be able to relate to this. In that series, the father (Archie) had a favorite chair. The favorite chair held the key position in the living room and had the best view of the television.

The chair was Archie’s domain. No one else was allowed to sit in it — even if he wasn’t in it at the moment. Although old and worn out, he refused to have the chair replaced, fixed or in any way altered.

So, when Archie entered the room, he went straight for his chair. If someone happened to be even near the chair, they got out of the way for him instantly. That was his chair — and that’s pretty much where he stayed (except when he was chasing someone out of the house).

Do you have an “Archie Bunker perch” in your house? Does one of your fully flighted parrots have a preferred perch that is pretty much his or her domain?
