New behavior from Psy

Hello all!
My wife owns a Rupell Meyer's parrot named Psy. He is very intelligent, fully flighted, and very bratty(about 2 years old).

Recently he has started exhibiting a new behavior. When he is free and my wife starts watching TV and ignoring him he will grab a toy, fly at high speed toward the TV and then drop the toy into the TV.

Is this normal behavior for a parrot?

Also, he just learned his first swear word!

Re: New behavior from Psy

Funny! Yes, totally normal! Don’t worry, he will step it up quite a bit more!
Hey, I know of a parrot that a couple kept in their bedroom. A very vocal couple!

Re: New behavior from Psy

Does she have a ruppell's parrot or meyer's parrot. If ruppel's that's awesome. I have one too.

Re: New behavior from Psy

Looks like a Ruppell's Parrot - the biggest distinction is that Meyer's Parrots have a green chest/belly.

Yes, the ruppel's parrot. I don't know why some people say "Ruppel Meyer's parrot", I saw somebody here named it the same by Meyer's and Ruppel's are two different species of parrots.

Re: New behavior from Psy

Your Ruppell's is beautiful. I thought about getting one but I know they are very difficult to find and I already have several birds.
