Duncan has called his little bird Drake. Drake has started flying a little. He's not swooping and soaring yet, but he does manage to flap short distances if he has a good take off. We've been taking him outside for short periods, hoping he'll make friends and find an outdoor home where he's not pooping on my carpet. He sits in the tree near our deck and chirps. There are a couple sparrows that immediately fly down and start chirping back at him.
Today he flew off too far for me to reach him. He was outside for a couple hours and only returned to me when he got hungry.
