Apparently, somebody needs to get his wing feathers clipped.
Peanut is a little slow to recognize when he's molted enough of the clipped feathers to fly loops around the living room. And even day to day, now that he can
fly loops, he won't try to do it every day. But you can see the gears whirring in his head when he flies a little loop, and then a minute later flies really fast
in another little loop.
Today he ended up on top of the Finsterium, which is just a little too tall for me, my hand can't reach high enough for the bird to step UP, so he just climbed around the edge and laughed at me. So I grabbed the camera from the office, and a dowel for him to step up on. Lucky for me, Peanut stepped up on the dowel, and went home. He's such a good bird!
Of course, the weather in Michigan isn't ideal for taking Peanut to the vet's for a clip: the temperature is just below freezing, and there's a bit of snow on the ground. We'll have to see how often he remembers that HE CAN FLY!
