Not been here in a while but I do check in on occasions. I just wanted to share a funny story my husband, Steve, told me yesterday about our Max.
Max is the singer of the pair, LuLu tends to squawk. They do make this amusing little noise in the evenings which almost sounds like a pigeon crossed with a dog. But Max loves to chirp really really loud.
So we live on the top floor of a building so 3 stories up and we have a large shelf outside the window, we are on the sea front so mainly see seagulls at our level. Occasionally we see Mr Crow doing his head bobbing walk around the shelf outside, it's quite amazing.
However in the front garden is a palm tree ( yes in the Isle of Man!) and the sparrows love that tree, you hear them all the time squabbling and chatting. So yesterday one of them must have heard Max and ventured up high to find him. The cage is in the corner and there's a window just next to it, so Steve told me little sparrow was outside this window chirping at Max and Max was in his cage chirping back at him.
Steve said it was brilliant almost like they were chatting. Bless my little Max he's like his human mum, likes to talk! He often chirps to the Tv if he hears any birds.
Thanks for reading and I hope you and your fleather babies are all well. X
That sounds funny. Lilly and Bubble both used to do that, talk to birds on the TV.
I miss that.
Max and Lulu sound fun.
Thank you they are just over a year old now. I'm struggling with veggies though, previously I had new birds with older birds and they learnt from them. I will keep trying but they get added dried veggies in their food.
Sounds like Max is a friendly bird. When the sparrow came to the window he was in, Max joined him in the chirps back and forth. He probably also made a friend whith the sparrow who most likely will return to see Max again.
