Bird let loose, kind of. Since Birdies escape into the world a couple of weeks back (read about it here) I had been wracking my brains of ways that I could take her out with me that didn’t involve wearing a harness that was so big for her that she’d wriggle out of it and escape. I’d seen bird bags/ carriers before on the internet but never revisited the idea until I saw one advertised on my Instagram and I instantaneously ordered one. I pink little spaceship for my favourite little bird.
Bird Let Loose
The estimated delivery wasn’t until the 22nd of September so I was fully expectant to not receive it until then, but to my surprise, it came much sooner and that meant Birdie and I were about to embark on some amazing little adventures together. On the first night that we’d received the carrier, we put her in it, with some of her belongings and took her up and down the street so that she could get used to it and she seemed to warm to it pretty fast. Initially putting her in it she panicked and I thought that it was going to be a complete disaster buy.
Luckily she blooming loved it and so that meant we didn’t have to leave it very long before we took her back out for some more adventures. In fact, we took her out the very next day for a walk around the Arboretum, a park literally around the corner from us with the dogs. Getting her inside was a bit of struggle again because she’d not yet determined that going in this pink spaceship means outdoor adventures but. never the less she was absolutely loving it once she was in and secure.
In the car she was watching the tree’s and buildings as we passed by them and at the park, she was making the chuntering noises that she does when she’s content and every now and then would shout out to us just to make sure we were there, as she was on my back, she couldn’t see me and Stewart occasionally wandered ahead with the dogs. You’d have thought we’d have driven a lot of attention to us walking around a park, but it was a Thursday and the park was pretty quiet and I don’t think a lot of people tend to turn around to look at a bag that someone who they’ve walked past is wearing so it probably wasn’t that noticeable that I was actually walking around with a bird on my back.
I’m already planning my next trip to take her out, I honestly didn’t expect her to be so good about it, I expected her more to squark devilishly loud and distressing but the fact she didn’t make me really happy. If you’ve got a conure as small as Birdie and you are struggling to find a harness to fit them, I definitely recommend buying one of these bird carriers to take them out on adventures with you. It’s worth every. single. penny.
