My Daughter, My Bird……
My daughter was the first to notice that our new bird Loki was……um….growing. At first I thought she was crazy but she is the Birdwhisperer. She has a knack with birds that is truly uncanny.
There are two parrots that put up with us. They both have us well trained. One being Maxi, a white fronted Amazon and the other is Loki, an African Timneh Grey. Both birds were given to us.
We knew Loki was young and still had some growing to do……but there is growing and there is growing.
Since my daughter was the first to notice Loki’s abnormal growth patterns, she wanted to be the one to tell his story. We took pictures periodically to show his growth. That was the evidence I needed to finally convince me that something was amiss with my little guy.
My husband, Capital G Geek, did some research on gigantism in animals. You may want to read his entry prior to viewing my daughter’s entry on Loki.
A picture truly is worth a thousand words in this case……..
