Re: Parrots reading human body language

As creatures of prey, parrots have evolved with a keen awareness of their environment. While they observe our bodies, the nuances of poise, facial expression, tone/tenor of speech, and dress give yield great clues to their minds. They seem capable of discerning intent from interrelated activities, such as putting on shoes, jacket, and heading for the door to leave.

My job required a uniform differing greatly from my usual casual wear. I'd leave home for typically 3 or 4 day intervals, and I learned to say "goodbye" before dressing. Initially, my uniform engendered a painful clinginess with knowledge I'd be gone for a long while.
