Moriarty Milestones: Window Perch

It took time, but finally, on the 5th April, Moriarty braved the window perch!

Due to Perry & Lennie’s current lack of flying ability, the window perches have been out-of-bounds for well over a year (certainly Dalai was the last to use them).  This has meant that Moriarty had to find his own way to the window perches, without anyone setting an example.

I would try & encourage him onto them when he was sat on my finger & a couple of times he would touch them & once even put his foot on one, but needed a bit more courage to take that next step.  On the occasion I had Perry on my finger, I would take him over, hoping he would remember the old days when he liked to sit on the window perch but if I got too close he got a bit worried so I would withdraw.

Moriarty regularly sits on the back of my chair & looks out of the window from there.  It was from that location that he took the brave leap to the window perch.  Unfortunately he was not there long enough for me to record the historic occasion!  However, since then, the window perch is now a regular haunt for him.  I am pleased about that because it provides more stimulation, from watching birds, squirrels, wind through the trees, rain, people passing through or children playing games.

    This is wonderful news! A budgie on a window perch is almost as good as a budgie on a swing!
