I'm thinking about getting a pair of parakeets or some other low-maintenance bird when I get into graduate school. That being said, I want to be able to fly occasionally first and foremost, and I am willing to postpone the birds until graduation if necessary. THAT being said, is there anybody here who has simultaneously taken care of a parrot and flown RC, and how did you do it? Should I leave it in the room to have some alone time as I venture for an hour at a time to the local park? Should I bring it along in a cage and hope it doesn't get scared of all the loud beeping and buzzing monsters around it?
