Car Ride

Decided to take our conure with me to pick up son from football practice. Obviously used a small cage. He seemed unsure at first but quickly decided it was play time. When the football team walked across the parking lot he really perked up listening to all those feet Overall it was a good experience. He did not stress out and son was really excited when he made it to the car.

Next adventure . . . How will he handle visiting my classroom of 5-6 year olds????

He looks like he's having fun! I'm sure he'll enjoy the company with everybody talking to him

I took him to work with me today. He wasn't too sure about getting up early and the 30 minutes plus of rush hour traffic (each way)but it was okay. He did learn that hanging upside down by one foot while scratching his head doesn't work well with potholes or lane changes. We alos had an ambulance with lights and sirens going pass right by his window -- definitely not a fan of that! By the time we got home this afternoon he was calmly sitting on his perch closest to me and just watching out the window. We will go again tomorrow.

This is how we deal with those pesky semis, motorcycles, and emergency vehicles now. He's decided Mom will protect him

He's settling in for his daily car rides. It may be just the lack of emergency and other loud vehicles the last couple of days, but I am enjoying my morning and afternoon snuggles. And I have to remember to take a healthy breakfast in the car with me. If its not good for a bird to eat, its not good for me either.
