Face Bite

This morning it has become clear again that I may be smart and loving to my family, but that I am not a human being. I was in the kitchen with Jan, and as usual after a while he wanted to take my back to my room again. He approached me... I don't know what got into me... but I bit him in the face. No, no, no, no, don't think that I was afraid, or mad, or whatever, it is just that I am an animal with jungle instincts. I don't know what got into me anyway, but those things occasionally happen to parrots. I am happy to say that my family members understand the nature of parrots completely. Instead of punishing me, Jan quietly took my back to my cage and acted like everything was just normal. But long after I had forgotten what I had done, Jan's lip was still bleeding... as a reminder that a domesticated parrot does not mean that you live with a 100% safe creature...

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!
