Pet birds.
First I bought a female. She was a pretty little thing, and would sit on my finger if I moved gently around her.
Then I got a male so she wouldn’t be lonely. Now they flee the moment I make a move.
I’m nice to them. I feed them, refill their water every day, clean their cage at least once a week.
What do I get in return? I get to clean up their feathers and droppings every day.
But it’s cool to watch them interact. I’m trying to figure out whether they fight or flirt, but I guess it’s a bit of both.
