Day 1 at Home: Mozart can fly!

We picked up Mozart from the airport at about 6:20 PM after she had been away from the breeder for a total of 8 hours!!!  She

came to us in a pink carrying case, and boy was she mad at first! She was growling and screeching at the man who handed us her case. As soon as I started to give her food and water through the bars, she became very sweet and chatted the whole way home.

When we got home, I put out a soft blanket and some foot toys. She was scratching to be let out, poor thing, so I opened the door. She climbed on top of that carrier and FLEW to a nearby hanging light fixture. I quickly put her play stand beside the area, and that’s where she stayed until bed time.

She stretched, preened, chirped, and squeaked at us, being very sweet. She took water and sweet potato from our hands.

We soon found out that our clipped baby bird is QUITE a talented flier! She had some crashes and made us VERY NERVOUS as new “parronts.” She’s a tough girl, though.

  1. Certainly a day full of changes for her. She is gorgeous! I’ve never really liked birds-scared of them actually-but this little girl has made me fall in love with her already! Can’t wait to meet her in person.
