February 24th, 2005 -- Mark Nash reports: Today was Remi's first visit to the vet for a quick check-up. While quite routine (at least for us), Dr. Luckwaldt will not be on Remi's x-mas card list - that's for sure!! While it was just a quick visit, with the usual trimming of nails and beak, and a quick examination, it would appear that even the skilled hands and good bedside manner of an experienced avian vet could not soothe Remington! She was obviously not amused, and the doctor really got told off. I suspect that much of the vocalizing by Remi was not for children's ears :-((
Pictured after the ordeal, Remi was no worse for wear, although my ears are still ringing some hours later!! She is a very powerful bird indeed, and quite a scrapper.
