At this point, Mac is pretty good about staying, it's too much effort to move that 950 grams of weight. Boko is the one that'd fly so she has to stay caged (or enclosed someplace, like in the bird room at home).



And if you're wondering - can't do leashes on their legs as it'd wind up breaking them due to the fragility of their hollow bones. Not like your usual predator birds, eagles, vultures, etc., they have real tough legs, claws, etc.

We have aviator harnesses for several of our birds. Our Catalina macaw weighs over 1300 grams, and the blue and gold is 1150. Neither are overweight, just big. A harness for them is a no go - I'm fond of my fingers.

The Eclectus hooligans will wear them if we are going outside. We have eight parrots total, six of them rescues.

We are still deliberating. I want to drive it a bit before we start whittling down the asking price. However, we got over a foot of snow last weekend and three more inches yesterday. Slipping and sliding is scary with four wheels - I don't want to try it with more.

The rig has a lot of nice goodies...but we're still on the fence. Save a little more and trade up for newer, buy this one, keep the rig we have...with no clear answer yet. Driving it may well be the deciding factor.

Sigh.

Deliberation is good... snow, not so much.

Yea, Mac is a little one, he/she was always smaller. Had a hard time weaning during that first year and that may have set the stage for being smaller or maybe it's a girl! even though I keep calling Mac a "he".

That's quite a crew you have there, I'm not sure I could handle that many.

I was up to three birds for a bunch of years but the 3rd was another grey I got from a pet store when it was 8 years old and it was abused. Couldn't fly (wings over-cropped), kept falling, eventually hurt his insides and any sign of harm only showed up a few hours before he died. It was sad, had a necropsy done at the local college to find out the actual cause. That was Nunzio - a true rainbow rider as he loved going for rides

okmunky Deb,

The GC@CL was a magical experience. It was the most fun I've had as a grown-up. Can you say that about geocaching?

Therein lies my delimma. Yes, I can say that about geocaching. We usually volunteer at the Block Party and get to meet cachers from all over the world. People fly in to Seattle just for this event. And this is the last time they are doing this event, as they are doing something different next year.

So you have been there... done that... come do something really wacky and different with us!

After warming us up at Bryce Canyon, maybe you could then attend the big Midi-C outside phoenix and we could practice our Geocaching abilities looking for that 24 vegetable geocache hidden in the Superstition Mountains

So...there are just a few caches in Apache Junction and we haven't done any of them. I was trying to figure out which ones you were talking about but alas, sleep got to me last night.
