Yesterday was the big day. I went outside for the first time this spring. When my person said, “Go for a walk,” I could hardly believe my ears. Did she say “Go for a walk” or “Go for a squawk?” But when I saw my carrier sitting in the kitchen, I knew the big moment had finally arrived. I hopped right into the carrier and waited while my person put on her jacket and zipped the carrier up. Then we went outside. I was so excited, I was shaking. How wonderful it was to feel the fresh outside air on my feathers and the warm sunshine on my beak! There were so many sounds to hear and so many things to see I just didn’t know what to pay attention to. My person and I went for a nice long walk and saw and heard many things. I can’t wait to go outside again. Unfortunately, today is cold and rainy so it looks like I’ll be staying inside for today. But now that spring is finally here, I can look forward to lots of outside activities—walks, mowing the lawn, gardening—I can’t wait!
