I went out for a run this morning, and when I came home, placed my chapstick and key on the counter. I left Rocky alone in the kitchen for a few minutes, and found that he had taken my key AND my chapstick and thrown them into the garbage we keep next to the counter. Here he is, looking at my stuff he threw away! Luckily I had recently changed the bag and my stuff didn't get dirty.
The rest of today's entry is full of videos. I was watching Max and the caiques eat their grapes, and I was struck at how differently they eat!
Max eats the most similar to what I would consider a "normal" parrot:
Calypso likes to first lick as much juice out as possible (by the way, that's Rocky screaming in the background because he doesn't really like grapes):
Beeps tries to not use his foot to eat as much as possible. Sometimes he wants us to hold whatever we're giving him, but we're not THAT accommodating!:
And then there's Rocky. He wasn't interested in the grape. When I had my back to him, filming the rest of the birds, he wandered over to where I had placed the apple I was planning on eating for breakfast. He always gets a slice, but apparently he decided to take matters into his own hands! He didn't eat too much, and I was able to salvage my breakfast!:
