Not much to write about... but thought I'd make a quick entry. Have had a horrid headache for the last few days, thankfully it's gone today. I took off of work yesterday because of it and rested a lot... and late in the afternoon, I guess around 3:00 pm or so, I saw some green object over in the tree across the street, so I got up and went to the window.... AND GUESS what/who I think I saw??!!!!
Fonda! I don't know if it was her, but it looked just like her. She was climbing around in my FIL's tree across the street.... just having a great time, it seemed like. She was eating the leaves or thoroughly enjoying something on that tree. I opened the window, snapped a few quick photos (I'll post them here in a little while - when I get home - but they're not real clear or close up), heard her snapping a few tree branches... and then I decided to call her name. After I said "Fonda", the bird, if it was her, looked over in my direction and held the gaze for a few seconds... I called again. She stopped what she was doing and looked in my direction another time and then continued to break branches and climb around in the tree. She was so cute and so free. I wanted to let Henry go when I saw this... all I kept thinking was how much happier he'd be to be out there w/ Fonda or that bird, climbing around in the trees... free.
I wish my husband had been home so he could have seen her... She stayed in that tree for probably a good 10 minutes.... and then when she flew off, she squawked loudly as if to say hello to Henry. Well, Henry heard her. He started squawking back... and I found myself wondering if he thought about her.... or if he knew something I didn't know. Was it Fonda? Was she saying hello to him? I guess in a perfect world, that could easily be the case... but in all actuality, I don't even know if it was Fonda.
I know the other green birds that I've seen over in that tree aren't as big as Henry and Fonda.... they're the smaller parakeets like the ones we have (Oprah & Stedman). But this one is bigger, like Henry. I hope it was Fonda. I hope she survived getting out of our house... however that happened.
Now, I only wish I could set Henry free... to fly free... to live free of cages.
