They do, sometimes.
Take for example, the seagull that stole a pair of hot pink knickers (truth be told, it was a thong) straight off a clothesline, only to be spotted minutes later wearing said garment over his head.
I mean, anybirdie with an ounce of self respect – and common sense, would agree that regardless of feather stripe, knickers don’t belong on yer head!
Welcome to Our New Page!
Each month will bring commentary on current happenings from a rather jaded, salty-beaked seagull’s point of new.
Now remember, seagulls are not like parrots, they tend to have saucier beaks and squawk endlessly of wildly exaggerated tales of adventure – usually involving the theft of knickers, fries or other tasty treats from unwitting humans. Seagulls are also not known for being polite as most have graduated from the school of Hard Knocks, having to learn how to survive and thrive on the edge!
So watch this space (page) for The Roost’s resident seagull’s perspective on anything and everything a bird can find in a parking lot, on the wing, underneath pooped-on newspaper, or something completely out of left birdie field!
P.S. A name for The Roost’s seagull would be most helpful (Morty had some suggestions, but let’s just say they aren’t repeatable!) so suggestions welcome!
Everyone who lives with a parrot knows that if you’re not in sight, your feathered companion will do whatever it takes to get your attention. Cheeks doesn’t like it when her human leaves her alone and goes out. She waits and waits and waits (kinda patiently but not so much) for her mommy to get home.
See Cheeks’ reaction when no one answers her call in the August issue of It’s A Birb Thing.
It’s hard to accept, but sometimes we’re not our bird’s favorite human. Often, with more than one person in a household, companion birds choose one person who they like best, bonding with that individual in a strong, special way.
This doesn’t mean the ‘second favorite’ person isn’t liked, it’s just that the bond isn’t as strong.
But, there are ways to ingratiate yourself and become their close-to-favorite person. Sherri’s August Feathered Frenzy article provides tips on how to build trust and show that you respect that while you may not be their favorite human, you do love them and want to part of their cherished flock.
Morty’s latest escapade takes him on a mission to right the wrongs perpetrated by an errant little Goldfinch who’s wreaking havoc in mum’s garden.
Morty confronts this pipsqueak and demands it refrain from damaging any more of mum’s beloved plants.
However, Bratbird’s reaction to Morty’s plea only inflates his feathers! See how Morty deals with this little upstart in the August issue of Beneath the Cage Grate.
