Recycling Rocky

Earlier this week, Rocky was being very demanding. Nothing was making him happy. Thomas decided he needed a change of scenery, so he wrapped him up and put him in our paper recycling box.

They do strange things like this frequently. As always, I would not recommend doing any sort of thing like this with a typical parrot -- they will just get angry and maybe fearful. But Rocky loves this kind of attention.

The main reason I'm posting this is because of the way he uses his wings to fly down from the box. A month ago he would have either tried to climb down from the box or screamed until Thomas or I rescued him. Since it's likely that he didn't have the opportunity to learn to fly until he was in his 20s, I'm not sure how skillful he'll become, but it will be interesting to watch!
