PEAK A BOO
Ever get the feeling your being watched? I get that all the time, and no, I'm not having a Prozac moment. The eyes that follow me are attatched to my Timothy. My favorite name for him is "Little Man", so I will use that often on this blog. A short while ago, my little man yawned while viewing the same show I was watching. Ignoring his obvious boredom, I asked him if he was tired, and he just shot me a knowing glance, that it was by no means his bedtime! Fastforward a couple of days: I was passing by his cage and unknowingly yawned within his sight....in a nano second he asked, "are you tired?" There is nothing quite like being mocked by a parrot!
Little Man isn't the only one that keeps a close eye on me when I am making toys. Zeek (the beak), my Nanday Conure always manages to get his two cents worth in also. He is the namesake for my shop on Etsy, where I make and sell bird toys: http://www.zeeksbeak.etsy.com/ Zeek and Timothy have shouting matches that could shatter glass. When I first got Timothy, I wondered why Zeek had started to increase his volume so immensely...until I found out that it was Timothy mimicking Zeek in stereo surround sound! Zeek is loud, but Timothy is louder. So now, when I hear Zeek's voice in stereo, I know it is just Timothy amping up the volume!
