I was trying to talk to Apollo today so he wouldn't get grumpy. He really doesn't like it when he feels ignored. With my voice gone I was worried about he would act. So, I got up real close to his cage and talked to him as much as I could. Which is to say, I whispered to him. The crazy thing is, he started talking back to me, quietly. Of course he doesn't know how to whisper (yet), but he got real close to me and talked quieter than I have ever heard him talk. Do I have a cool bird or what?
