Isaac's eight months old. We just inherited a small bird.
Isaac has never seen a bird in a cage or any of the birdcage accouterments. But, immediately, his attention was fixed on the bird. His eight-month old brain immediately filtered out the shiny bell, the sizeable cage, the multicolored rope, the cool birdfood dishes, and the perch/mirror combo. The bird was barely moving. It was the interesting bit.
