... taking inventory

I am a fortunate bird. Being domesticated, I have a lot of time to ponder. At change of season, I like to take stock. I have a fine home with the proper birdie accoutrement, delicious birdseed and plenty of reading material. But the "jewel in my crown", as it were, is SWMBT, my keeper, my friend. She is almost family.

She is usually calm and gentle in her handling of me, which I appreciate. Except, of course, when I bite her. Why do I do that? Maybe to keep her on her toes.
