Perched on a Perch

Another breakthrough! Today, for the first time, very wobbly, I sat on a real perch! Jan nailed a twig to a platform so it can't roll away. After one minute I got tired though, so I stepped off again. Jan is very afraid that I might hurt myself, so he made sure the whole perch was no further from the floor than a quarter of an inch.
And now, if you will excuse me, I have an important job to do. I have to dig a hole in the sawdust. I do that several times a day, for no reason I can think of. I guess I just like to see the sawdust fly around and have Hilke moan again.

His New Life

They say that you get used to everything. This is true, but still we miss our Dandy. We phone to the refugee center regularly to ask about our Dandy, and the answers are always the same: Dandy is still in quarantine but fine, he has adjusted well, he has stopped picking his feathers, he is between other Greys, although still in the same cage on his own. We are not allowed to visit him yet, but we will, as soon as his quarantine period is over!


I have caught a terrible cold. All day long, I am sneezing and coughing. Haaaaa-CHEEEEEEE! Cough! Rattle! Don't you feel pity for me? Well, don't worry, I'll tell you a secret. I haven't really caught a cold, but it is just a sound I can't resist. This is Hilke's way of sneezing... and I just copied it! Do you hear me calling her name?

The Big Oh Three

This is a special moment. Earlier this year, Sophia has reached the Big Three Oh. Today, I have reached the Big Oh Three! I am growing up fast and will soon reach full maturity. Later this month, I will contemplate about my life so far but now I will go to sleep. Good night!
