Oh, Tane, I will always love you.

TANE'S SONG

Strumming my heart with his ritrits
Singing my life with his chirps
filling me softly with his song
filling me softly with his song
lighting my whole life with his chirps
filling me softly with his song

I heard he sang a good song
I heard he had a style
and so I came to see
and listen for a while

and there he was this young bird
no stranger to my eyes
Strumming my heart with his ritrits
Singing my life with his chirps
filling me softly with his song
filling me softly with his song
lighting my whole life with his chirps
filling me softly with his song

I felt all flushed with fever
Enfolded in a cloud
I felt he knew my feelings
and sang each one out loud
I prayed he would not finish
That he'd just keep right on
Strumming my heart with his ritrits
Singing my life with his chirps
filling me softly with his song
filling me softly with his song
lighting my whole life with his chirps
filling me softly with his song

he sang as if he knew me
In all my darkness fair
and then he looked right to me
as if it wasn't there
and he kept on singing
singing clear and strong
Strumming my heart with his ritrits
Singing my life with his chirps
filling me softly with his song
filling me softly with his song
lighting my whole life with his chirps
filling me softly with his song

Strumming my heart with his ritrits
Singing my life with his chirps
filling me softly with his song
filling me softly with his song
lighting my whole life with his chirps
filling me softly

he was strumming my heart
yeah he was singing my life
filling me softly with his song
filling me softly with his song
lighting my whole life with his chirps
filling me softly with his song

hi!

sorry about your buddy Tane.
I always feel sympathy when some of you guys loose one of these lovely fellas, they indeed fill up our lives.

I don't spend a lot of time with mine and I don't interact as much but I have a hard time when I see one of them down.

RIP Tane

And I hope you take another feathered buddy into your life. They are full of joy.


Cheers / Pablo

Not to worry, Pablo, I still have his companion Paua, and she has come along tremendously being a single bird. Now she will fly to my hand if I put it out for her (if she feels like it, of course!). She's a proper cheeky thing, unlike Tane who was the staid English gentleman type, a very strange parrot. Paua enjoys buzzing me - flying very close to my head on her way from one place to another. We really interact; I'm hoping she will get enough faith in me to stay with me as I move around the room, not just visit me and fly away again.

Tane was a *very* special bird and he will always be with me. But I'm hoping also that Paua will be with me for quite a time! Wink

Thanks for your msg, Pablo, I wish you could have known Tane.
Chaikhe.

hi Chaikhe,

I'm glad you still keep a companion bird.

About the behavior, I don't mean to be bearer of bad news, but don't expect a kakariki to perch and stay like for instance cockatiels do. Kakariki are too busy gossiping around to stay more than 1 second around hehe.
It's their own way of interacting. In fact they never preen each other, nor they are cuddly like other species.

But they get confident very quickly, and they are usually fearless. Now that she's alone she'll probably become more interested about your activities.
If you read some of Steps' posts you can probably find some ideas to challenge her and make her curious about what you do.

Cheers / Pablo
