(An aside, Aqua is on my shoulder chewing away on my necklace!)
Ahem, Aqua! Stop chewing on my ear! Sorry, Aqua is being annoying. I have had him for only about a year. So far, everything is running smoothly. Oh, yesterday we clipped his wings. He is a Goober. (If you do not know what a Goober is, it is a very funny animal that can get away with almost anything!) Well, right now he is in his cage, trying to start a fight with his mirror. He is chirping away, just like a Goober.
Well, so far, Aqua can do these things:
1 Wolf whistle VERY clearly
2 Be Very brave and hang upside down
3 Bite very hard
4 Lift his mirror up and throw it down
When we clipped his wings, it wasn't very easy! It took 5 tries before we could. I felt SO sorry for him, but it was for the best. I got him just before Cristmas, after falling in love with one of my best friends birds. I couldn't decide on what to name him. Finally, I decided on a name. Sir Aqua Hash Spicer. VERY smart. He likes that Discovery.com commercial where those metors burn up.
Mom wanted to name him Charlie, but I said , NO WAY! I AM NOT NAMING HIM CHARLIE! He likes to run around on the tiles in our kitchen. TICKETY TICKETY TICKETY TICK!!! SCRATCHHHHHHHHHHHHH TICKETY TICKETY TICKETY TICK!!! SCRATCHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
Whew! that takes alot of energy, even for such a energitic bird! Right now he is swinging on his snake, and sliding down the side of his cage. Oh, he LOVES to chase his blue car. He pickes up white beads runs off, drops it and then he sits on it! It's halarious! He loves grass & gladiola petals. He'll pick up a long blade of grass and chew on it. It looks as if he has a moestache! He has his own ladder. I'll go "Ladder" and he'll climb up it! OH! My name is Amanda and I am eleven years old. Aqua is one year old. Sometimes, he will pick up some seed and throw it. That creates a BIG mess.
Well, Mom's barking at me to get finished. So, good-bye! Oh, I thought Eddie the Peanut was especially good.
