I fed this bird almonds and bits of fruit the night before, and it came back in the morning looking for me. Every time I gave it a piece of almond too large for it to ingest, it would bury it. Birds are kinda fun when they're not in a cage, squawking and making awful smells in your apartment.
I caught the train back to Santa Barbara and drove straight back to Glendale, arriving this morning at 6:00am. I'm pretty damn tired right now. My whole body aches.
Totally worth it.
