Sunday. Midnight. Tossing and turning because of a toothache. I've been postponing the dentist for weeks.
I hear a bird scream outside in the dark. Sounds like a parrot. Couldn't be one of mine though, they're both in their nest box.
OR ARE THEY?
Creep downstairs. Open the front door to check...

This is a thread for all those people who worry about leaving their birds for a few days.
I left mine for what should have been a few months, but ended up being a year. No contact, no video calls, nothing. Yes the first few months were hell.
