It’s the first time I have ever seen him sitting there.
Here’s a video of Monta hanging around this evening (and some photos below the video). As you can see in the video, he’s a bit on the weak side. He tried flying just before and ended up just fluttering to the ground. He then hopped back on my hand. He seems to enjoy spending time with me at least. Last night we watched some videos together of java sparrows singing and he was entranced!
Monta is cleverer than I thought. He is having trouble flying well and getting from perch to perch. But he wanted breakfast and figured out if he flings himself to the cage wall and grabs it, he can then lower himself to the perch where the food is.
Here he is enjoying his morning service, prepared to his liking.
