The Cranky Parrot



The Cranky Parrot

Another critter from the Baluarte. We were so happy when we entered the place because the birds were just by the entrance and they're not in cages, which means we can take good pictures with them!

There was a school field trip, and the place was packed with lots of hyper kids in elementary, and you bet they were all over the place! We were happy about that because the place was so happy, but when I wanted to have a picture next to this parrot, the parrot got cranky, and the staff said that this bird's really cranky and doesn't want anything to come near, so I just stood relatively far from it. Just as soon as brother hit the shutter, the bird cried so loud, and it turns out, a kid pinch the parrot! The staff thought it was me because I was the one who wanted to have a picture next to it! The kid ran off in shock, so all the blame was poured in me! Geez...

Anyway, it's nothing for me -- it was a kid, a hyper one at that, so being someone older, I just understood it. But of course, I was so humiliated when the staff scolded me and all people looked at me.

That looks like a ginormous bird. Nice that you were able to take its pic when it was looking at the cam.
