She's pretty amazing. Such a well-traveled bird. :) How does she do in the car?

She does really good in the car, she'll purr and rub her face all over my cheek and make kissing noises if I kiss her cheek lol. She usually sits between the two front seats and at stop lights or straight roads I pick her up so she can see.

It took her a while to get used to it though, she would get really scared if it was at night and swing her head in circles over and over. When I first started driving with her she had to sit in my lap, if I tried putting her anywhere else she would jump and flap her wings trying to get to me which was a hazard.

I'm hoping to get her a travel cage soon that I can put in the back seat, It makes me nervous having her in the front where a airbag can crush her.

Dang, I wish I could see people's expressions when you come to a stoplight and they see such a gorgeous bird sitting there with you. :)

It would just be so fun to drive around with you for an afternoon with a video camera, taping people's reactions. XD

Yesterday when I got back from camping and after I said hello to everyone I put Rosie on the shower door and jumped in the shower(nothing feels better then a shower after a camping trip when your dirty, and sweaty). I notice Rosie preening some so I take the mister(yes, I keep a bird mister bottle in the shower) and mist her some, and guess what! She lifted her wings and was enjoying it! First time she ever did that and it was awesome.

Here's a example of what she was doing, only difference is her head was down XD

Some people swim with fish, some people take showers with cockatoos. :D She looks pretty hilarious like that (it's such a funny angle!) but also so happy.

The photo isn't of her, I would get my camera wet if I tried XD It was super cute though.

And you'd be surprised, so many parrot people take showers with their birds. Even if the parrot doesn't get wet the humidity in the air is really good for them and their feathers.
