Being the parrot mad people we are, high on the entertainment agenda was a trip to the Tikki bar with the two Macaws that we had met on holiday two years previously. Yes they were still there and yes they were still attracting lots of attention.


T


he only bright light, shining like a beacon at the end of an endlessly long winter was the thought of the annual Freeman family holiday to the stunningly beautiful island of Majorca. The allure of sun filled days, crystal clear seas in sandy coves, whitewashed houses trailing exotic flowers and warm balmy nights was almost too much to bear when wrestling with a stubbornly inside out umbrella on yet another wet, windy morning in Wales. But endure we did and soon enough we were preparing for sunnier climes. Fellow Parrot Society members will know that it isn’t possible to drop everything and jet off at a minute’s notice on holiday when you own parrots. The days just before you leave when normal, unparroty people are packing their suitcases, we are jet washing cages, ordering vast quantities of parrot food (just in case our plane is stranded and we can’t get back),raiding the fruit and veg aisles for bargains in Tesco and writing instructions for our parrots’ care that would rival a university dissertation.
