Jan, Hilke and Sophia went to sit in the garden and took me with them. I never thought I would think that way again, but it was as cozy as it was in the beginning (March). They were chatting to each other, again I saw many birds and the wind played in my feathers. After ten minutes I gave my first sound while being outside: the wolf whistle. I noticed the world did not change after that, so I carefully uttered a few more sounds. All the same, I was happy when we went inside again after half an hour.
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!
