We were so excited when our first visitor arrived. And boy did he arrive, announcing himself in all his finery. We had fun at first as he pecked around the house, letting us know where he was at all times, especially when he wasn’t happy.
Eventually we began to worry that he was going to hurt himself. We realized he was probably pretty lonely, and we hoped that he would find a lady friend that would distract him from what seemed like endless pecking all hours of the day. We thought he might move on when he went days with no lady prospects in site.
We worried; we hoped; we figured he would eventually get bored. But after more than two weeks of this, it appears we are stuck with him… he cares not that he has worn out his welcome.
