More Rio :)


Here's a picture of Rio I meant to post with the others and forgot. I'd ordered some toys from Sonoran Parrots for the birds and here he is browsing through the smaller ones. He finally chose the little green airplane and in a matter of minutes, reduced it to teensy bits of chewed-up plastic. Good times.

I don't know if the pose gives you any idea of his size, but he's perched on my arm. Of course, my arm isn't terribly big so I don't suppose that's a real good gauge of measurement. *grin* Think of it like this: his beak is almost the size of a budgie's (parakeet's) head. He looks quite huge beside Sun conures or cockatiels. But then I look at him next to Pancho and think how small he is! (Pancho's a big fella.)

And Rio insisted that I repost the computer picture - it seems I didn't make it clear who that was busily working his little talons off. That's Rio at the keyboard, not Pancho. Rio got his beak quite out of joint with me over that. Sheesh. Prima donna. At least I didn't mention that my biggest concern when he's working is poop between the keys, and not any typos he might make. Yeah, good thing I didn't mention that.



Oh, you people are gonna be so sorry you asked about the birds. Bwahahahah! There's more to come!

Now I want parrots even more. For myself! Rio looks like one of those moody avant garde writers - is he?

He certainly is. :D

Sometimes he manages to type in a few random letters before I stop him and then he protests violently. I suspect he's trying to send a message that says something like: "help....held prisoner by crazy lady...send bird treats."

Anne, I'm becoming a bit concerned - ever since I met you and became so enamored of the darling parrots I seem to have developed an odd set of markings on my feet - I PM'd you a picture - perhaps we should blog about this?

Suddenly "Blame it on Rio" takes on a whole new meaning. :-)

LOL, September. :D

Dawno, I think a blog about this is certainly in order. One question: do you feel a strange compulsion to consume green bean casserole?

Dawno said...

All the time! I've got it bad, don't I - don't hold anything back!
