Jail bird

Kirk in his kingdom


The life of a parakeet. Kirk has trained us so that when he wants to take a flight around the family room he sits by his door and squawks until we open it. Then he comes out, flies two or three circuits of the room, and then sits on top of the cage for a few minutes before returning inside. I figure it’s good exercise for him.

As a pet Kirk’s not particularly cuddly. When you change his water or food he hops up to the top perch as far away from you as he can get. Yet he’s fun to watch. He hasn’t seemed too lonely since his friend Spock died. And now the real Spock (Leonard Nimoy) has passed away as well. Live long and prosper, Kirk.
