I'm aiming to be the crazy parrot lady

This morning I had a guard of honour on my way to university. Eight(!) rosellas escorted me and my bicycle all the way to the end of my street.

I think they were pissed off because I took away their sunflower seeds half an hour earlier than usual, when some of them were only just arriving. So maybe it was more a case of chasing me off their land, rather than following me because they love me so much.

Whatever. It was still pretty damn cool.

I so totally want to see a video of this, it's not even funny.

I'm sorry, shrinky, but not even for you would I operate a video camera while riding a bicycle and watching parrots :)

I'm with Shrinkykitten on the video. Could you use your cell phone to photograph the parrot brigade? Perhaps if you did it quickly enough they would think you were just chatting.

StyleyGeek said...

Yeah, if I had a cellphone :)

They don't mind me taking photos of them usually. They don't like coming really close if I'm holding a camera, though. And I'm not sure if they'll repeat the flying escort thing. But if it becomes a regular feature I'll definitely get a picture.

And it's probably about time for a random parrot snap anyway. I'll try and get one this afternoon.
