Zons versus Greys

Postby Pajarita » Sat Nov 26, 2016 12:28 pm

I started reading this article with a lot of enthusiasm but her using the word 'breeds' instead of species really ticked me off because, in my personal opinion, anybody who doesn't know the difference has no business writing about birds. But, in any case, here it is:

It is really dumb to compare species. Personality of each bird is different.

I do not let Rainbow into the bathroom. He chews my cabinets. The other day he tried quite a few times to get in but I chased him out. After about the 5th time of telling him to get out he decided I was not as smart as he is. I told him to get out and he started toward the door. Then he slowly started walking backwards thinking he could fool me that way. It is really all I can do to keep from laughing. That would only encourage him.
