    We are having a three day adventure with Milton.

    Yesterday, Milty and Irving visited our church's vacation bible school. We always make a visit there, so Milt is used to the experience.
    He was a perfect gentleman...he danced and waved at the kids ...he let them pet him...then lifted his wings so they could pet him there...a high honor. ;)

    Today, another "Bark at the Park" event at the baseball game. Milt loves the attention showered on him there. It's supposed to rain today, but we sit in a protected area.

    Tomorrow...Milton and Buddy's annual in Buffalo, NY...an hour and a half one way trip with two squabbling birds in the back seat...I'm getting the satellite radio in the rental tomorrow to drown out the arguing...;)

    Love to see a video of Milton and Buddy arguing. Do they use words at each other or just sounds.

    And thank you for finding that thread, I had to go to bed.

    Buddy yells (screams) at Milton...and Milton tells Buddy to "SHUT UP"...unfortunately, there's no way of getting this "discussion" on video since I'll be making the trip by myself..no one else wants to be subjected to the screaming on a road trip...;) :rolleyes:

    Milton is such a good boy! I’m sure he made the kids at the Bible school soo happy :)
    Have fun on the trip, and remember dad: when the kids start arguing in the back seat you just threaten to turn that car right around!! :p

    I’m glad Milton is having so much fun lately! :dance4: I bet those kids were overjoyed.:heart: The idea of traveling with two parrots arguing like two kids in the backseat cracks me up!:rofl:

    ..the idea of the two screaming at each other is already giving me a headache...or is the screaming of all of them right now giving me the headache?

    Oh boy!! I can’t imagine getting to see a Cockatoo at Vacation Bible School. That’s so fun!
    Good luck on your trip—might as well have a couple toddlers in the back seat. :laugh:

    Our visit at VBS was nice...Milton was a perfect gentleman, let the kids pet him. (even under his wings-a high honor) He even danced for them...he was so happy for all the attention that was shown towards him...naturally. ;)

    The "Bark at the Park" night had problems. Even though Milton had been there three times before (with no problems) the ticket scanner person refused to let us in. He had three off duty cops there to "back him up". I demanded to see an official from the baseball team to talk to him about it. While I was waiting the cops made inappropriate remarks and began laughing at me...calling me a "bird brain, etc".

    Talking to the official, Milton and I were "permitted" to attend. I have filed complaints against the police involved (who were uniformed, so even if they were off duty, still represented the City and the taxpayers) charging "unprofessional conduct".

    Our trip to the AV went fine. Both birds got a clean bill of health, although Buddy tried to bite everyone in sight, and Milton tried hiding under my chair in an attempt not to get weighed.
    They fussed and complained all the way up and back...as usual.

    I can't get over you had an issue like that with the police! Make sure something is done about that Bob! That ruins the whole night!

    I wish I would have seen this sooner. I believe we go to the same AV. It would have been nice to meet .

    You are quite correct...it ruined the whole evening. I don't blame the organization...I just can't believe the insensitivity of some people.

    And it's funny...the game night staff who work the games all recognized Milton right away...they're all so happy to see him...

    Such jerks...I don't understand why that even happened. I wonder if it was someone new at the gate? :bored:

    I don't know.

    The Bark at the Park nights are really fun nights...I'd never considered taking any of my birds to a game until I saw games in Pittsburgh and San Diego on TV. The game in San Diego showed a pot bellied pig in attendance...and the game in Pittsburgh had a fan dressed like a pirate...with a Blue and Gold Macaw on his shoulder!
    Just for reference, the baseball team in Pittsburgh are the Pirates...so the connection is a natural one...the team in San Diego are the Padres (no pigs involved ;))
