I can just see a parrot added to our menagerie someday…..
I just love your posts!

Well, get ready for doing a little hunting! They tend to wander off if you don’t have your eye on them every second…
I must say they do enjoy it and Greys are occasional ground foragers, so it’s instinctive I think. Thank you for the kind comment. It’s nice to hear from you!

Hey, I LOVE to go walkabout too but I’m usually looking for Mom or Dad when I do. However, I am quite fascinated by the underside of the kitchen cabinet overhang. Quite cozy under there.
BTW, I see Pepper’s got some red feathers too! I’ve had a few come and go over the last few years and until the last couple months had never heard of such a thing. Now, we’re EVERYWHERE I look!

Thanks for toddling by. Pepper isn’t a climber. That’s Parker’s department. But she does enjoy trying to cram herself under the china cabinet occasionally.
Pepper has had red feathers for a while now. I think she has damaged follicles from what I’m not sure, but I think some of it is due to a malnutrition deal she must have had going on before she came to live with us. But now she eats like an utter hog and gets good reports from Dr. Backos.

Great photos, Tim! We especially like the closeups of Mac. The super closeup of his eye and over the shoulder are our favs. And we see you’re a fellow Mac person. Is Mac named for the computer or macaw or both? ; >

Thanks Tim! They’re beautiful. I appreciate you sharing it. It’s kind of like my set-up except it’s about ohhh, 10 times as big…

ROFL!!!!! OMG! Patricia this is so funny. My two greys are just like this and I just laughed all through your pictures. Very fun! One of my greys also likes to sit in the bathroom. He just sits there in the dark by himself with his back to the cabinets. I do wonder why this is, but apparently they have their reason.
Thanks for sharing.

I’m glad I’m not the only one who’s birds go for “Walkabouts.” I’m simply amazed at how much they enjoy strolling around.
