dish rack

One of Pico's favorite places to sit while she watches Ashley cooking is the dish rack. One morning, after cleaning out all our compost containers and piling them up to dry in the rack, Pico climbed right under one and nestled in. I just thought it was the funniest thing—she looked like she was flying in some silly parrot spacecraft!
Another video-worthy moment was when Ashley set the salad spinner with wet kale in it in the dish rack. She decided it was a perfect bathing opportunity! It doesn't get cuter than a mini green bird diving into and rolling around in a pile of wet greens!

And she thinks there is absolutely nothing funny about any of this!


  1. you have a Pico in your salad!!
    that is soooo adorable,I wish I had a cute bird like that ^_^ But I am incredibly allergic to birds...booo

  2. Reminds me of when I halved a honeydew melon to eat and my parakeet decided to bathe in it instead.

  3. Aw! Pico is so cute, I love how friendly she is. Now I want a little parrot of my own.

  4. Hahaha! That is so adorable! I'm typically not one for birds (my grandmother used to have quite a flock, which I think pushed me away), but I really liked your little video! I can see now that birds can do just as many cutesy/funny things as any other pet.

  5. Birds are such opportunistic bathers... my parakeet once dove head first into a glass of water he was sipping from. Pico looks so pleased with herself to be sitting in that tupperware, what a funny little bird!
