Outsmarted by the bird.

So I'm sitting eating breakfast (banana bread) and mango is begging for scritches. I oblige her, and give her a tiny piece of bread. She loves it of course, and then starts begging for more of my breakfast. She reaches down to grab a piece off of my plate, to which I say, "No!" She looks disappointed, and then looks up to stare at the ceiling. Sometime she sees bugs and spiders up there, so I look up to see what she's looking at, except there is nothing there. When I look back down, she has a mouth full of banana bread. Mango, 1. Human, 0.

Re: Outsmarted by the bird.

there is a reason conures are regarded as the clowns of the parrot world, they can be the best actors.

Re: Outsmarted by the bird.

Hilarious. As soon as I saw the thread "outsmarted by the bird" I KNEW it had to be about a sunnie!

NEVER, EVER underestimate the intelligence OR determination of a sunnie. They make look totally innocent, but I tell ya, there's ALWAYS something mischievous going on inside that brain of theirs.

We've all seen parrots perform tricks and do things they are trained to do. Great to see, but its nothing compared to the 'unplanned, untaught little gimmicks they come up with. They do things that even we couldn't make up! lol
