Message:Yes, that is so true! The first time I got sick with flu after acquiring birds (all I had was the macaw at the time) I really dreaded it. I thought he'd be screaming his fool head off because here I was, home, and he wasn't being let out of his cage. When we're home and able to supervise, birds are always out of their cage. So here I was not "busy", just sick and I thought if I came out and laid on the couch in his room that he at least wouldn't feel like I was ignoring him although I certainly didn't feel well enough to chat, only to sleep. He sat quietly watching me and even played quietly. It touched me to the point of being misty-eyed. It was so heartening to receive such compassion out of my feathered friend. Aren't birds wonderful? Indeed!
