Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens....no don't worry this bird is not going to perform a tribute to Julie Andrews, however I do have my favourite things and also things I don't like. As well as my love of crepes and Fatima's jam I have a love of buttons, bracelets and earrings. I am able to easily remove earrings and buttons with a slight of beak as skilful as a magicians slight of hand. Bracelets turn, look pretty as they catch the light and can make a nice sound. However some things don't go down quite as well with me for example I do not like red hair. Maybe I feel a little threatened by people who challenge my colourful plumage but for some reason I am a little hesitant around them. I am not hesitant around men who show an interest in Sally though and I am likely to get a little rowdy like a disgruntled teenager, squark loudly, flap my wings and throw things around. Still I'm only young and maybe my likes and dislikes will change maybe to bright copper kettles and warm woollen mittens.... Hold on isn't that a song.........
A little piece of Bella.....
I will not be everyone's pirate accessory. However my feathers are in demand and when I lose my lovely feathers people make earrings and necklaces with them and put them in their hats. If a guest is lucky enough then I may make sure I just drop one in their sight... I am thoughtful like that and then a little bit of Bella goes back with them to the country they came from. Then who knows when they find that feather in years to come they may think back to Sally's B&B. As I write this blog I have dropped 4 feathers in my cage for Sally today.
My name is Bella and I am a McCaw parrot living at Sally's B&B. I will be sharing some of the many stories I hear from my friends and guests from all over the world.
