Johnny, Beth's Source of Joy
Johnny is such a sweet old bird. I don't know exactly how old he is.
The breeder I bought him from said he was an older
bird and sold him for a lower price. Johnny likes to stand in
front of his mirror and whistle at himself. When it comes to toys he is not real
interested in anything except his mirror. He likes to look at himself.
He has been known to look at his reflection for hours. He loves to eat Cheerios. His favorite activity is
riding around on my shoulder.
My husband has nicknamed him Pit Bull because he tries to
intimidate you when he is in one of his invincible moods.
Johnny acts so macho but really is
little bit of a coward. He is afraid of a lot of things. The sound of paper scares
him so bad he climbs to the top of the cage and hides. He
is also afraid of my 4-yr. old son but even I can identify with that.
Johnny also enjoys the
company of his girlfriend Casey, although sometimes they don't get along.
Johnny is jealous.Casey is my gray and is also a very sweet bird. She and
Johnny will compete to get their heads scratched. If you
scratch Johnny's head,you better believe that Casey will be their
in a second flat. Johnny is very very jealous of little Case.
If she is perched on the food dish he will stop what he is doing
and go clear across the cage to knock her off the dish. She of
course in return always gives him a run for his money.
Johnny has brought joy into my life
in so many different ways. The most important way is that he knows how to love. He likes to
get close to my face and rub his little head on my nose. I call them hugs!! It would take me 3 pages
to describe my genuine bird. So I'll leave it at this. I love Johnny so much.
He is a unique,one of a kind bird and the joy of my life!!!!
