They can come out but only when parked. They have A/C and lots of heat so are really enjoying their lives. I just tell them let's go on holidays and they are all up for going. They also have boating experience as well and adapt to that very well. My sister has a dog that comes on the bus and really likes to lie by the woodstove so no complaints from the animal kingdom.
I guess there really only is one int'l border for us to cross but we choose to stay at home and enjoy our country.
Hello! Thank you!
That's a great idea. Thank you so much for replying
And I think it says under you're name you're from or in Ontario, we're in Ontario too
I had seen so many videos with people who had dogs or cats, but no one with birds, so this is great.
Yeah, we don't plan to go South any time soon, but we would like to eventually and I wasn't sure on how difficult it would be to take the birds across the border, but I have friends with birds who'd happily look after them while we were on a trip to the states

One cat cried all the first day, was fine after that. I plan on doing it again.
Our cockatiel is a big scaredy-cat and our budgie is fairly new, so I doubt they'd be that bold to ride on a shoulder while driving at first, but I know eventually they'll view the space as home and get more comfortable. Our cockatiel is a love bug and LOVES to cuddle and be held and play games, but the moment something new shows up visually, he's on red alert and he's flighted, so he's gone.
I just love that visual though, a happy bird riding on a shoulder and looking at the open road
And sleeping at the foot of your bed <3
Thank you both for responding. I was really unsure about how our birds would do. I wont know until we buy a bus how and where we'll fit their enclosures in, but I know we'll figure it out
