What are some of the cute things your birds do?

Remi can be really particular about eating a hard cracker. He loves to dip it into water. It is so cute to see him dunk it a few times, lol. He also puffs up his head feathers if he doesn't like someone or something. It really isn't scary, it's just darn cute, lol.

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

When my blue crowns are in a full out mutual preening session. They look so cute as they seem to be enjoying it so much.

And when Rosco gets protective over Tootsie when I am near her. But it is really just a lot of bluff. I call it his "Puff 'n Bluff" mode. His head gets all boofie and he acts like he is going to bite my hand off. But if I move towards him, he is like "Never mind! It was all a mistake."

noodles123 will become famous soon enough
Re: What are some of the cute things your birds do?

Noodles will randomly decide she wants to do "upside-down bird": I always ask first and if it is a "no", she moves to my wrist, but if it is a "yes", she stands on my fingers and I swing her 4 feet or so in the air while she hoots upside-down lol. She also tells me when she is ready for bed (which I love) and loves certain music.

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

Hmm. When it comes to conures; cute = manipulative. lol. Cuteness, hmm, where do I start? lol. Pretty much everything he does is cute, which I'd imagine must be very hard work to remain so cute constantly. The kissy noises when he wants something, the tongue wagging when he wants juice (that one is just priceless). I think his cutest feature is they way he communicates with me. It blows my mind how much rapport he and I have. There is a catch to it though, I can't just jump up whenever he says jump. I've had to teach him patience so that he doesn't start acting like I'm controlled by remote.



I'd be remiss if I didn't mention his 'napping' on my shoulder as one of his cute things.

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

Appie all of a sudden decided: "if it aint swingin' it aint worth perchin' on ".


A few weeks ago I was redecorating the cages and Japie absolutely does not like swings of any type (just like Sunny- though I think in her case it is because she has nooooo idea what to do with them and how to not fall off) so on a whim I gave Appie one...
(a boing-type)



She has not left it exept to sleep in her usual corner.
I just turned and found her swinging upside down on the end of a rope .. her newfound way of safely investigating a new-to-the cage shallow carboardbox I placed there this morning for demolishing/toy purposes.
(too shallow and open to be interesting as nestoption)


She wil actively propell the swing in my direction to grab some treats and even get some very short scritches.

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

My GCC, Callum, does so many adorable things. As a user mentioned before, I'm sure it's a "if I be cute, I get something awesome." sort of deal.
Despite being flighted, he loves to waddle around on the floor and eat stray rat food, or food he's chucked out of his cage. If I'm sitting on a chair and he isn't on my shoulder, grooming my hair, he's picking at my toes. He does this with guests as well. I have a case manager and she has a toe ring. He was infatuated with her toe ring!
Of course, there's the begging. If I'm eating something, he tries to steal a bite from me. He had some steamed white rice last night and he didn't know how to eat it. He couldn't hold it well enough, so he get set it down and munched on a few grains at a time.
If I'm drinking water out of a bottle, the evil green cap must be attacked.
If I set anything down near Callum's cage, he must crawl out of his cage, throw it from his area onto the floor, and then go back to his cage.
Despite having a perch at his water bowls, he has to dip his food in his water bowls while he is hanging from the side of his cage, upside down.

If I sneeze, a screaming fest ensues. Then I laugh with his screaming and then he does my cackle back at me, which then causes more cackles from him. I can't tell you how many guests have been cry-laughing because of Callum's cackles. He also know if he cackles, it'll get me to cackle more, so he then cackles even more.
If I'm laughing really hard at something, I don't really make any noise for a little bit (I know, I'm weird), so Callum will cackle for me.

My Joey, the cherryhead conure, she's 27 and her entire life she's had her cage covered at bedtime until we get up the next day. When I cover her she always says "nite nite" over and over.
