I'm sitting in the living room, feet up, enjoying a cup of tea while watching a news program. From behind me comes the sound of short, stubby wings in flight. I put one foot on the floor.
I wait a minute and a Mexican Double Yellow-Headed Green Amazon parrot pigeon-toes across the carpet to my feet.
He waits for his elevator (my foot) ride to my level.
Once he's settled on my leg, he produces four seeds from his beak and lays them on my knee.
They are his favorites--a shelled sunflower and three safflower.
I'm touched. He's happy.
Such a good bird......
I said "touched," not "tetched."
