My neighbor has this sweet, lovely and very well trained parakeet. I will often see her wandering through the neighborhood with the bird perched on her shoulder.
Sometimes she chats and other times they just walk together in comfortable silence. She never seems flustered, even when there are dogs or children near by.
She Made a New Friend
The other day as many of our neighbors were working on a community garden, my husband made a new friend. She settled in on his shoulder and was quite content to observe the activity from her perch.
While she is very social and will typically go from person to person, on this day she decided Andy was her guy nestling up close to him and moving away from others who extended a hand for her to step on too.
