A while ago I bought one of those drinking birds to have around my desk at work. When I was in high school I bought one when given the opportunity during one of my science classes. Tragically that one met with an accident that ended in broken glass and chemicals. My current bird is still going strong (except the cloth around his head is very loose and fragile and will rip easily when it’s moist).

Yesterday Anna was asking me why I didn’t have any water for my bird ever since I took him home. So I got the cup I had been using at work and went for the filtered water. In my mind I was getting the filtered water because I knew the water could get a little gross since I don’t change it often, so hopefully filtered wouldn’t get gross as fast as tap water. In retrospect it does look like I’m concerned about the quality of water my drinking bird gets 😛
