Next she’ll be using a tin cup and playing a harmonica

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Multimedia experiments

This is what we call The Kling Klang. BB does this to let us know she wants out of the cage.

If you hold out until the 30 second mark you’ll see how far she can get.

p.s. Ha. You also get to hear my silly pet voice. You know how your voice goes up an octave when you’re talking to your pet cats and dogs? Well, it’s the same with bird owners. *sigh*

That is just too cute! I have a pet bird as well and love watching them play.

My 6 year old loved this (and is now asking for a pet bird. thanks).

Also, your “pet voice” is my “baby voice”.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
