    I think Frodo hates my red polar fleece jacket

    I don't know if parrots have thing about certian clothes. But whenever I wear my red polar fleece jacket Frodo won't step up or come out. He lunges and tries to bite me and refuses to come out.
    But soon as I take that jacket off and get something else he will come out.

    So don't know if he really just hates that jacket 0.o

    Hi Tarryn! It is good to see your here again. I have no doubt that Frodo is afraid of plain just does not like your red fleece jacket because I have noticed that lots of birds seem to hate certain things when they see it. Boomer use to be scared to death of our waterbed when we took off the sheets to wash them, he would fly in a panic out of the bedroom like it was going to eat him! My daughters Conure is afraid of rolling balls on the ground and will freak out when he sees them. Not as panicked as Boomer but definitely afraid.
    Fly Free Boomer, we will forever love you.

    Yeah seems like he hates it or is scared, Only piece of clothing he seems to have an issue with. Its too hot for jackets but he seems to prefer I have one on as makes easier for him to balance with his missing toes/rather than bare skin etc

    That is too funny. My budgie, Marlee is afraid of a shirt I wear, that has a picture of a deer on the front. She flies all over her cage and tries to hide!!!

    Sammy upset one of my best friends a while back by refusing to come near her - and he usually loves his aunty.

    Wasn't until halfway through the visit I'd realised her nails were bright, glossy red sparkles for Christmas.

    He HATED them.


    Thanks Lee for the adorable sig!

    Funny I found this post the little canary I had called cinnamon hated when a guy would come near me... He would puff himself out and fan out his wings even if my own dad tried to hug me. It was rather odd but cute at the same time I really don't know why he did this but now that I no longer have the little guy this post brings back good memories of him.

    Re: I think Frodo hates my red polar fleece jacket

    Almost 30 years ago I had a baby sparrow I had raised from a hatchling. He went absolutely everywhere with me. I had a job driving over 60 miles each way to make deliveries. Bitsy went with me. He was fearless except for one thing. Whenever I'd put my windshield wipers on, he'd freak. In order to drive with him in the rain I had to put a towel over his carrying cage so he wouldn't see the wipers.

    Even though Bitsy was with me all of his life, I figured he had an innate protective mechanism that made him fear large flying birds who prey on sparrows, like crows.
