Then we took a plane – Qantas carrying a cockatiel!

Quantas pretty good service this time

At the end of the flight when we picked him up in Adelaide fresh out of the Qantas hold he was traumatised the. PTSD last about weeks. I don’t know if this applies to all birds but Cockatiels are very sensitive little creatures. In the mornings all birds tend to be, well er noisy! In Lucio’s case this manifests itself as chattiness, he will speak all the three word sentences he has ever learned but after the plane trip and a few days later the 8 hours inside the car in the hot hold of the spirit of Tasmania he was stressed very stressed all his words came out jumbled up and even the sylables were in some cases back to front. All very odd. There is a Phd thesis in there somewhere…
