Intelligence

Hi Everyone,

The very first budgie I had (Bluey) I believe was extremely intelligent and did many strange things which showed its intelligence.

One springs to mind:

I was repairing an electrical device and Bluey, being hyper inquisitive decided to investigate.

I had put 7 screws in a spray can top and Bluey noticed this. He stood there simply looking at them for about a minute and then decided to remove each screw one by one.

After doing this he decided to have a little fly around and then came back to where he had dropped the screws.

He looked at them again and then proceeded to pick each one up and return them to the top he had removed them from.

It was fascinating to watch.

Another thing he insisted on is when we had our Sunday roast he wanted to sit on the edge of the table while we were eating. We gave him a small plate with some of the roast on it and he happily chomped his way through it.

Basically he had his dinner every Sunday with us.

I'm sure someone can top these stories so if you have any stories about the intelligence of budgies and cockatiels I'd love to read about them.

Re: Funny budgie, parakeets and cockatiel stories

My brother (Mel) had a male African Grey Congo named Sam that could mimic sounds quite well and talked a lot. On occasion when Mel was in the shower he'd hear his wife call out and say "Mel, telephone". So he wrapped around a towel and went to the phone only to find out it wasn't his wife calling him . . . . . . . . . it was Sam.

funny bird momma

Does anybody else catch themselves whistling to pets other than their bird? Thatís been my m.o. since I got my keet. Not sure what the pups think of a whistle in response to a bark, but it gets their attention at least!

The budgie my family found loves the song Stayin' Alive by Bee Gees. I put music on today to try and make him more comfortable, and this little dude starts chirping along nonstop.

Re: Funny budgie, parakeets and cockatiel stories

The funniest thing my little Quaker Sugar ever did was try to attack my daughter, who was three at the time.

We had just returned from vacation, so Sugar was already mad at being left with my mother in law for a week. I took her out and put her on the floor and was holding her, and it was the one and only time that she bit me like she meant it. Her bites are normally no more than a mediocre pinch, even at her worst. She bit my cheek, hard, didn't draw blood but left a mark.

So I set her on the floor, and my daughter, 3, who she HATED (She's 21 and she still hates her, even the sound of her voice on the phone will send Sugar into a screech rant) was sitting about 8 feet away from me, not very close, but not very far away. Sugar was walking on my lap, jumped down onto the floor, and ran after my daughter with her wings up, screeching and yelling loudly, literally screaming at her as she charged after my poor daughter, and chased her down the hall. It was so funny! This tiny green bird, just terrorizing my kid. She managed to jump up onto a bed to avoid being bitten, but I feel like if she could have reached her she would have succeeded in getting a big bite in.

We still laugh about the time Sugar tried to kill my daughter, lol
