Ask me for a photo of my bird, I have to post one!
Celebirdy of the Month
- Real Name
I bet my B&G would love that window perch! Every time a car goes by he makes the cutest noises of excitement and pinches me to make sure I see it too (the bigger the vehicle the funnier his expression), and whenever a bug flies up to the window he looks at me like he’s just seen a UFO.He now can watch and yell at the neighbours and the wild birds in total comfort.
Sarah did an extra special order and got in a window perch for Burt.
Burt chases the tiny little bugs that flutter about on the window and if they are on the inside of the window he squashes them- some he will eat and others must taste or feel yuck lol. The butterflies, bees, dragonflies and tiny little wrens need to be screamed at and chased away by the big scary bird that he is lol. He does the same to the bigger birds but only when they are flying away, if they are looking at him and flying in our direction he freezes or panics till I tell him he is fine.I bet my B&G would love that window perch!

He is flighted... he is never going to be fat. Yah, that was my guess. 1200. Korbel is 1170 but I haven't weighed him in ages. Any drastic weight changes I can tell when I pick them up and I've had no reason to weigh him. Kailua, while she looks bigger than Korbel is only 950.I no longer take him outside with his harness as there are always massive kites circling the paddock out the back and our yard, the first time we went out in the yard here on the harness was the last time! He was being watched and it scared the both of us pretty good. They are a good size and will pick up rabbits no problems so I am not comfortable with Burt being out there. At the old place we used to go out every day and he would meet people walking past and watch the cars and little birds. No kites and wedge tail eagles there in town hardly ever.
Yes I have been told he is big and he is not fat either.... he is just under that weight, usually 1194 to 1198. I am tipping tomorrow he will be a bit less.
