Big Birdie Mess: Bird Term of the Day

The definition of the word “mess” is “a disorderly accumulation of objects; a cluttered, untidy, usually dirty condition.”

By Melissa Kauffman

Blue headed Pionus parrot mess
My blue-headed Pionus Deacon made a big birdie mess in my office while I was working on the Bird Word of the Day.

Big birdie mess: (noun) The definition of the word “mess” is “a disorderly accumulation of objects; a cluttered, untidy, usually dirty condition.” A big birdie mess is an accumulation of debris created by a bird in his quest to break up bigger objects into little bits and pieces that could someday become bigger bits and pieces – like if we were in a forest – which we aren’t, so it is just a big disorderly accumulation of bits and pieces of whatever the bird’s beak got a hold of all over our floors, tables and walls. A bird that follows his instinctive duty – and believe me, they follow that duty until the last breath they take – will never stop in his quest to create the all-time biggest, baddest disorderly accumulation of objects. (Note: That being said, a big birdie mess does not stop pet bird owners from keeping a bird because there are some quick and easy ways to contain it and clean it.)

My budgies are champs at Big Birdie Messes. You wouldn't think a parrot that little would be such a trooper at it, but they are.
