Subject:My New Gizzy Bird - Cute Story
Message:Well this evening will complete my first week with my new Nanday who is a few years old.  This bird, I've found loves her cage and unless she is on my shoulder, she really likes being in or on her cage.  In fact, if I pass her cage when she is on me, she attempts to get back to it and unless I pass it quickly enough, she will make it back to her cage.  I like to get her out and about, so I'll take her to the screened in back porch and into different rooms of the house that she hasn't experienced.  I just want her life to be interesting.

Well, my hubby was doing things around the house while I took a nap laying by the dogs on the living room floor.  All 23 parrots here were out of their cages and most everyone else was also napping, the house was actually quiet (rare occasion here <smile>).  Well, I had my eyes closed but I wasn't asleep and all of a sudden I feel something rubbing themselves on my fingers - it was Gizzy bird.  I didn't even hear her leave her cage.  She has only been with me a week, but our bond was nearly instant from the moment I first saw her at the store.  For a little bird who really loves her cage, she sure left it to come see if maybe I was OK laying there on the floor (I guess??).  She climbed up onto my chest and stayed with me for 5 minutes or so (long enough to put a little poopy on me) and when she was convinced I was fine and just resting (I guess??), she looked back towards her cage which was about 10 feet away and jumped off of me, trying to fly with her trimmed flight feathers, and ended up gliding 1/2 way back to her cage.  My hubby helped her back up to her cage where she promptly crawled back inside, preened herself, played a little with her straw and proceeded to nap a bit herself.  What a sweet baby.  I guess I have quite an imagination to suppose she was checking on me, but who knows?  Maybe she was.  None of my other birds cared to see if I was OK.  LOL!  I love my little Gizzy bird!!
