As promised, here is a picture of Tycho enjoying the FunTime Birdy Playgym he received for Christmas. I'm pretty sure he thought the humans finally came to their senses as he helped show them the best way to sit by a tree shredding wrapping paper. This was his first Christmas, and it turns out that he's a natural at unwrapping presents.
After we assembled his playgym this morning, we set him on his perch and he immediately started throwing pellets all over the place. Then, having wreaked enough havoc, he started preening himself triumphantly atop his food dish.
With best wishes for the holiday season and a happy New Year,
Megan, John, and Tycho (Quaker Parrot) - Illinois
