    Talking Clever Rhoo

    I snapped photos of Rhoobarb just now showing how he gets onto his favourite place to perch - the handle of the balcony door.

    First, he flies up to the curtain rail, and pulls the curtain along with his beak until he thinks it is in the right place.



    Then he climbs down the curtain, making numerous holes in it on his way down. It looks like moths have been at it with all those holes!



    Then, when he is at the same level as the door handle, he flaps his wings whilst gripping the curtain with his feet, to pull himself along far enough to reach the handle. He has his route all sussed out!



    Then he climbs on (watch out for the red butt shot )



    Proud of himself. Now he can watch the world go by.

    And they say animals don't have logical thinking... Bullsh**! They are smarter than humans! Roo is very cute and smart! I am slightly glad Bill had not demostrated such abilities yet... He did figure out that if he jumps from his T-stand on to the bed and then walks to my husband, I have time to catch him, so now he just jumps from the T-stand to as far into the bed space as possible instead of the edge, since I have less time to intersect him then... He also figured that if he walks very quietly to my mom and then says Boo, she freaks out and he has a good laugh!

    You're serious? ROFLMAO! Oh that is one sick puppy you have there...what a wonderful character! Hahahahaha!!

    LeeAnne, I think Rhoo is one of the smartest birds I've ever seen/read about You must be very proud of him !

    What does he do when you wash the curtains? **snickers as she sees LeeAnne rush to take them down for a "good wash"**

    LoL...yeah I would imagine that he'd smack his beak into the door when he tried to land..cause they gotta lean forward to get their balance and there's not a ton of room in between the door handle and the glass.

    Adorable pictures btw...Rhoo is adorable..and I just LOVE the name Rhoobarb for him. I love the red butt pic as well. Smart little dude. I don't remember if you've said..is he getting better with the biting? I know a little while ago he was pretty bitey with you. Hope that's gotten better

    What does he do when you wash the curtains?
    He tends to avoid the window when all the net curtains are down too. I think the whole 'open' look of the room confuses him. I wish I could keep the curtains down permanently to stop him climbing and BITING them. He is so naughty!

    I do wonder why he just didnt fly to the handle to begin with, is he too big to make a successful landing?
    I think Alicia is right, that there is not enough room there for him to land properly. He'd probably smack his head into the glass.

    is he getting better with the biting?
    Yes! Much better than before. The major jealousy issues have slowly gone away since Jo Jo died. He still bites now and again under certain circumstances, but that is to be expected coming from a hormonal jealous 7 year old grey. There is still some work to do, but he is certainly mellowing out now.

    Dude, I love Rhoobarb! He's just so funny! I love how he looks so proud once he gets to his "perch." All the pictures are just awesome!

    Ahh, I just can't get enough of Rhoobarb.

    He is so cute! Wow
    Success: To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
