Syd my Senegal Parrot comes strolling into the kitchen

Syd my Senegal Parrot

I left Syd in my room where he was playing on the table and he can get to the windowsill, where he can see out the window. I thought he was quite happy, he had his lovely farm music by the 4 jacks and jill playing in the background. All those wonderful moo moo noises and tractors starting up. But of course he could hear all the girls chatting in the kitchen, it was Sunday and the whole family was around.

Lo behold here is Syd my Senegal Parrot strolling in

I was in the kitchen when suddenly I decided to look down, lo behold Syd is standing there on the floor next to the fridge, he must have strolled down the long passage to get there. Syd has perfected falling off things, since he has been to the vet in September for his wings clipping, he has decided he will find a way to get down. So his new trick is to pretend to slip, he has even practiced on his basket where he has figured it unbalances if he sits on a certain side. I guess there is a lesson in it for me or all of us, none of us really like being alone, we are all connected to the universal mind. We are all one really, Syd just set his intention and promptly put it into action believing, never doubting that he could do it.

Joy to watch Syd my Senegal Parrot with newspaper

Syd and the newspaper

Syd, my Senegal Parrot just loves chewing paper, of course the newspaper that he hates people to read, or hate is a bit strong. He constantly tries to get in the paper when you are reading it, climbing inside at every opportunity. Take a look at the pictures, so cute, normally he does not go all the way in but I caught him in action.

Syd with newspaper

Some days he chews up the newspaper at the bottom of his cage, ripping it to bits, all parrots seem to like the newspaper to chew. Of course he loves any piece of wood or wooden pegs as well.

Joy to behold to watch Syd with newspaper

It is a joy to behold how Syd gets into this focus with chewing the newspaper or fascinated with climbing or sticking his head into it.

Syd the Senegal Parrot

Syd, Senegal Parrot

I am Syd, I am beautiful, I am magnificent, I am gorgeous, I am Clever. Yes this is my ego talking but I really am these things.

Senegal Parrot, my life Syd

I wake up in the morning, then I get my favorite berry juice, then later I get rusk dipped in coffee, yes I know I am not allowed this, but what the heck once a day wont kill me. I get my normal veggies and I have my moms cereal with sesame seeds in it has to be the unshelled variety. I have cereals before the rusk dipped in coffee, so quite healthy really, my other food is some sunflowers, yes not so much, i mainly eat my walnuts and wholenuts and love to crunch on monkey nuts.

Syddie, me the Senegal Parrot and family member

Yes Sunday the house gets invaded with the rest of the family, Ethan who is 7 years old we watch the cartoon network together. I must confess he can be a bit rude, sometimes he kind of ignores me, it is so easy to acknowledge me, what can I say children of today. Then my aunty Jenny who wants to feed me, I do like her, but don't want her to do things to me, Andrew I am quite fond of he has a kind heart, Brigette as well. But it gets awfully noisy so it is nice and peaceful when they all go and peace abounds then. Oh well this is the life of a Senegal Parrot, sleeping for me is 13 hours a night, sometimes I have a room mate Brigette.
