A Fun Place to Play

You know what one of my favorite places to play is? A desk drawer. My person has a desk drawer that's full of the most wonderful toys -- pencils, paper clips, notebooks, and lots of other stuff, too. I love picking up the paper clips and tossing them around. I try to see how many I can get to land outside the drawer and fall on the floor. That's lots of fun. And when I'm done with that, I like to pounce on the measuring tape and pick it up and shake it around. Then I look for something nice to chew like a pencil or a notebook cover. I have to warn you, though, if your person sees you throwing paper clips on the floor or chewing the cover of her favorite notebook, she'll probably put you back in your cage and slam the drawer shut and then sulk around for a while. I speak from experience.

Fright Flight

OMG. You won't believe what I saw the other day. My heart is pounding just thinking about it. I was hanging out peacefully in the kitchen, sitting on my person's shoulder, when all of a sudden I saw it: A huge hawk, right in our driveway! Of course I took off right away, flying as fast as I could in the other direction. I didn't stop to look where I was going, I just wanted to get away as fast as I could when, suddenly, bam! I slammed into the picture window and dropped to the floor. Ooooooooh, that hurt. That's an experience I don't certainly don't want to have again. My person rushed over and picked me up. I was so shaken I had to spend the rest of the afternoon hiding in my person's shirt. Of course, while I was flying away, my person just stood there like a big doofus. I hope she realizes how lucky she is that the hawk didn't eat her up. Anyway, we are both safe and sound now, but I will be keeping an extra careful watch out for hawks from now on.

Here I am eating some delicious applesauce that my person made. Yum!  It feels so smooth and sweet on my beak. I think homemade applesauce is my very favorite treat, next to homegrown sunflower seeds, of course. September is such a great time of year because that's when all these tasty treats come out of the garden.What about you? What treats do you like to eat at this time of year?
