"I have an Alex who is about 5 years old, she is just lovely, affectionate and clever. She sits on me like a little baby making little chirping/bopping sounds. I don't know whether she thinks I'm her mate or what the go is. I have had her since she was a dorky looking baby with her beak way too big for her head, and the second I saw her, that was it, I had to have her. Her vocabulary is not too big and consists only of a very sleezy "helloooo".... She has flown away a few times over the years (about 4 times) and every single time she has flown back home again. The last time she flew straight back into her cage. Each time she has spent 2 nights out in the "wild", calling to me periodically just so I know she is ok. There is no mistaking her call, although I can never quite work out which tree it is coming from! Then on the 3rd afternoon out she will start making her way closer and closer to home until she can glide back to me. She will then eat like she has never eaten before. Every time I have lost her I have spent the whole time worrying that this will be the one time she won't come back, but each time she comes home. I am amazed at how clever she is. Especially since each time she has flown away she has been in a completely different suburb or even state, and she still finds her way back! I used to clip her wings, but it made no difference to her ability to fly, so now I leave them alone so at least if she does manage to get out I know she is able to fly properly which will give her a good chance of survival."
