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.
