NorthernGannet is on a distinguished road

She's a bird, she's a plane, she's a dancer!

Recently I got rid of my old loveseat and replaced it with a recliner. Well, this has allowed Luna to discover feet. DARN!!! There's no turning back, but she will fly to my feet, shoes or no, and chew and bite. So my feet have been turning into earthquakes and major vibrating appendages in order to discourage her from being on them.


The other night she was incorrigible, and finally during one of her incoming zooms I lifted my feet completely off the footrest and started waving them around. I assumed she would turn around and fly away. But no, she actually 'chased' my feet midair in her attempt to land on them. We literally did this dance, my feet moving this way and that (being VERY careful not to kick her), and she turning and flitting in/over/under/around them like a mosquito trying to land. I wish I had it on video because it was actually a testiment to her wonderful agility skills.


You've seen those videos of people dancing with their dogs? It was like that.

You have discovered that p'letts are one of the most agile birds around! Ricochet will fly full speed towards the kitchen from the living room, almost stop dead in mid air, then reverse course back to the living room in a split second. He is fast. He flew right at my wife's face at full speed then stopped and reversed back the way he came.


Once a p'lett discovers something he/she is fascinated with, they remember it and go after it every time.! Beautiful to watch, are they not?

Yes, it is amazing how acrobatic a parrotlet can be. First time I say Jules hover and change direction I found it amazing.

Bryan will become famous soon enough

I have a chair and ottoman and Pip does not bother my feet thankfully. He did make his way down to the ottoman for a little while but he got bored with it and does not go on it anymore. I find with Pip the more you disorage him the more he wants to do something... hehe

He is for sure agile though. I have seen him change directions and curve around things just all kinds of crazy stuff when he does his flying.
