Re: What are some of the cute things your birds do?

Kiwi is clipped and doesn’t know how to fly, so he’s dependent on us to get around. I like when the foot goes up for a ride and if it is not noticed or ignored, it starts grabbing for you lol.

It’s also super cute how he sometimes gets in this mood where he’ll roll onto his back with a toy or hang from the roof of his cage by one foot with a toy in the other foot and just shake his head/face his wings in absolute birdie excitement overload

That sounds super cute!

Remi is not clipped, well his flight feathers have all grown in from last year when they clipped him at the pet store. He still gets taxied around because he is too lazy to fly, lol.

Re: What are some of the cute things your birds do?

Well, the ol' Rb is endlessly amusing/endearing in my eyes. How can I choose?
I guess it has to be the bell thing. Al (Wrench13) sent a tubular bell to the Rb a few years ago, and it has become the bird's prized possession.
I never miss an opportunity to show it off.
Luv ya, Al!
Ring that bell, Rickeybird, ring that bell!

Re: What are some of the cute things your birds do?

LOL, Gail, he loves to hate it just like Salty does. I think he would burst if he couldn't have his daily argument with his bell.

Cute.... is when I walk in the door at night and I am greeted with "Hi Daddy!".

Not sure if it is cute...but Sunny started to yell/call at me in patagonian after those vids of the RB.

(She is a bit lower voiced because of the size difference...but I think the RB has another admirer!! Gail: are you really, really sure you do not need another insane parrot? )

My conure will do this when I get home and take him out of his cage. He's in the highest corner, so it's always an awkward moment when I try to position my hand for him to step up.
He doesn't grab me when I ignore him, but he'll just keep his foot in the air like "I'm waiting"

Remi will start "humming" with me if I mumble a tune. It's hilarious!

Re: What are some of the cute things your birds do?

Let's see:

Ollie: When he disapproves of something he does this beak chewing noise we call the "chew chew". He isn't scared or anything when he does it, he's basically just saying "hey...that's not how to bird!". He's a very by the rules sort of fellow. He will also cuddle with me sometimes and go unded my neck and just sit there while I stroke his head.

Paris: She's a sweet but very jumpy little person. We give our birds like a half tsp of seeds a day as a treat at 6pm. Paris gets SO excited she literally runs all over her cage top as fast as she can pacing back and fourth until I give her the seed bowl. She is 3rd in line to get them so she does it for quite a while. I love how cute she looks when she is on her back...she let's me put her on her back anytime and will accept neck scratches and closes her eyes. Sweet girl.

North: She has a lot more in common with Ollie... she's a bit of a grumpy little thing sometimes. If I do something she doesn't like she'll cuss me out for like at least 5 minutes or so. She just keeps going on and on...not really screaming but just telling me something lol. She also is very sweet and just likes to curl up in my hoodie and have her beak tickled.

Finley: Man oh man did they broke the mold with him. If you just look at him you die of cute poisoning. He'll just stand there looking at me with his foot in the air or if I'm offering treats to the other birds he'll rush down to the edge of his play top to give me a kiss. If I have a pistachio I can just say "come give mommy a kiss" and he'll come down and kiss me! When it's bed time he will also come down to his play top and arrange himself on my shoulder as I'm having Ollie step up to go to their sleep cages. I find that to be very cute and smart of him. He is so cute and always lets me stiff him as much as I want and never bites me face haha. Finley is REALLY smart. I just wish he would stop being so afraid of the couch! Lol.
