The Secret of Life, as any pet parrot can tell you, is knowing where the sunflower seeds are kept.
In my case, it's the kitchen cupboard that holds this big old bucket of trail mix.
I have to admit, I don't mind nibbling on the occasional dried cranberry or nut that I might come across, but, fortunately, sunflower seeds make up the largest portion of this mix. Any time my person is in the kitchen, I'm right there with her, pulling on her ear to remind her to open the cabinet and bring out the seeds. Sadly, she doesn't always obey me, but that's a subject for another post.
