Of Plotting Parrots and Potted Plants

Today, I put some new houseplants in my room, carefully vetting them first to make sure they were non-toxic to birds, and then putting them out of Malaika's reach anyway because he loves to shred plants.

So, things were set up and more or less tidy, and I got Malaika out and put him on his desk to play.

He instantly spotted the change in the room, climbed the blinds to reach the top of the book case and used that as a launch-pad so he could glide across the room to the dresser where the plants are.

A bowl of cornflakes and a new box to shred have distracted him for the moment, but I have a feeling that I may be spending quite a lot of time separating bird from plants.
