One of the joys of owning your own house is that you can do crazy things. We had a giant swing in our aviary in Vancouver that was on an old rusty chain. We removed the chain and restrung it on some nylon rope, adding a bunch of new toy parts to the side, and then hung it in our kitchen.
Because everyone needs a giant swing in their kitchen, right?
Keela thinks it’s evil still, and Theo is not a big ‘let’s go up in the air on things that move’ sort of bird, but Tlalli found it awesome.
We got some pictures too, of course.
Today’s life lesson for you. If there’s a parrot out there that you meet that has this expression on her face — do not touch her. This is a SUPER excited greenwing macaw.
All of her, including tail.
Eating swing — we’ll have to re-string this pretty frequently, I fear.
For times when we might not want to have a giant swing in our kitchen, it can be easily removed and stored elsewhere.
However, for fun parrot times, it looks like this one is a hit. :)
