Never to early to make a first impression

My ex-wife has an African Grey. Rather, her second husband had an African Grey, and when he passed, she wound up with a pet that very well might outlive her. He's totally bonded with her, and treated my daughter like she was a sibling, and he's fiercely intelligent for a bird, and...well, he's kind of a dick. To be fair, that's to me, because my ex-wife and I don't get along, he catches the vibe and he absolutely hates me on her behalf. To the point if he hears my voice on the phone, he does his level best to become such a distraction that the call ends, and his person can be free of my presence. I get it, but damn.

My daughter has since moved out of her mother's house, and for the first time in, well since she moved in with the sucker, she's marveled at how quiet a house can be. The bird is...well, they can be very vocal. And sometimes a li'l aggressive and dickish if their little feelings get put out of sorts. They're still wild animals, not domesticated, and while there are plenty of heartwarming stories, when you deal with these suckers, you have to understand that if they can't go their own way on their own, they get a little weird from the captivity. And being about as smart as a three or four year old...with a slightly better emotional maturity as they age, they can be taxing as pets.

My daughter is not looking forward to her mother approaching her to take care of fella when she gets on in years. Amazing critters to be sure, but maybe better as companions if they choose to come over out of curiosity, than as pets far from their homes.

So many things I would do differently would be wrong.
Followed the rest of the story because I was curious about her methods, that she ignored what the woman had told her...   she goes on to explain in great detail why he chose the methods she did.
Pretty cool.

Beautiful bird. As stated above, I could not take one on because a few reasons mentioned and more, but damn impressive they are.

Video is a year old and in the description it says, "Bean has been legally surrendered to Ronie's For the Love of Birds Parrot Rescue"

Good. That woman was scaring the crap out of that poor bird.
