Rocky and the blanket

Last night, Thomas and I were making dinner in the kitchen. At first, the greys and Beeps had flown in and Rocky had walked in, but after a few minutes, Rocky disappeared into the living room. After a few minutes, I went in there to check on him and this is what I found:

He'd climbed up on the couch and gotten himself tangled up in a blanket. This video is a little long (51 seconds), but I was trying to get him to show his face. One great thing about Rocky is that when you call his name, he emerges from wherever he is to look at you (unlike Max who freezes when you're trying to find her).

Unfortunately, this time he'd really dug himself in to the blanket and couldn't quickly get out, although you can see he's trying.

In this second video, I lift up the blanket at the end so you can see that it is, in fact, him under there.

This habit of his comes in handy when we need something to keep him occupied for a few minutes. We just put him on the couch and throw a blanket on him. He loves it!

As with most things involving Rocky, I wouldn't recommend people do this with their parrots at home. Every other parrot in our house would hate this (and we wouldn't allow our females to do this anyway as it's a bit too close to nesting).
