Wednesday evening

Since Wednesday morning is when I go to the farmers' market, Wednesday evening means delicious salads!

As usual, dinner making time means excitement for our grey parrots! Max came over to examine the asparagus:She was more excited when I brought out the cheeses to shred:
Yes, she is perching on our salt shaker!Not surprisingly, Stella had to come over to see what Max was doing:Once the bowls were filled with lettuce, both greys had fun throwing lettuce on the counter and also licking water off of the lettuce:
Max also grabbed a mushroom:
The lettuce and mushrooms on the counter in the background are courtesy of the greys:On yesterday's post, The Homeless Parrot expressed some concern about Max eating garlic. I really appreciate it when people leave comments about ways I can improve my parrots' lives. I hadn't even considered the possibility that garlic could be dangerous -- I know it is recommended, in small quantities, in holistic parrot treatments, so wasn't concerned with Max eating it. However, allowing Max free access to all the garlic she likes is not small quantities! After doing a bit more reading on the topic, we will be restricting her access to garlic -- it's not worth the potential risk. Thanks for your comment and concern, HP, I really do appreciate it!

:) No problem. I guess you will all have to risk vampires now that Max is no longer protected!

I can't tell you how much I enjoy your blog, and I just absolutely love the wonderful expressions on your parrots' faces. You and Thomas keep up the great work!

Oh, and I don't feed my parrots garlic either but only because I hadn't thought about letting them have access to it. But I'll for sure be more careful now; thanks HP!
