Melon progression

This series of photos was taken last week, after Thomas had scooped fresh canteloupe into bowls for dessert (for the humans).

First, the exploration:Then, partial claim by putting one foot on the bowl, making it difficult for humans to remove the melon from the parrot:
Finally, full claim to the melon! The only way for the human to take the melon bowl to eat is by bringing the parrot along!

Mary: Yes, underneath the noise of Charli the brown-head, and the two cockatiels (Bobbsey Twins) it is horribly silent. There's a huge space where her cage was, and nothing I can think of seems right to put there -- not a play stand or a chair or anything. But I try to think more often of the fun things she did and remember her when she was well and quite full of herself. I guess I'll miss her all my life. Thanks for checking in.

Charli will put her left foot on her treat dish, too. She's very clear that it's her dish and she ain't sharing.
