Afternoon mischief

As soon as we get home in the afternoon, we try to let Marco out of his cage for some free time. Unfortunately, he immediately looks for trouble. Usually it starts with him flying over to the computer and walking across the keyboard. He did that just now and I shooed him away. So he pranced over to where we keep some fish food and started trying to bust into the bag. Brat!


When I shooed him away from that, he flew into one of the bedrooms and spent some time hanging out on the bed. He refused to step up on my hand when I tried to make him come to me. You can't leave him unattended (unless you want to return to a disaster scene) so I finally had to grab him and make him go back to his cage. I took another picture first.

He doesn't care what you think.
Life with a parrot can be a lot of fun, but it can also be a real pain in the a** sometimes!

  6. And he looks so innocent. I hear there are now huge wild flocks of green Parrots in the UK (Parakeets, maybe?). Someone must have let a few go, and they bred like crazy.

  7. He is such a character! Does he get on okay with the dogs?

    1. He's fascinated by the dogs and will call them both by name. Ginger and George ignore him for the most part. We dare not let him out of his cage if the dogs are in the house, though. It would be too easy for something bad to happen.

  8. Marco is a bird who knows what he wants to do and he does it. And he is a beautiful green colour.

  11. Phew! That's a relief! The title of this blogpost led me to suppose that the two characters in the tale would be you and Gregg - not you and Marco!

    2. Did you also know I would say this?....
      A ch'im un pinnara, i kangsan ungum e,
      Chawon do kaduk han samch'olli,
