As promised, here is Salty's and my entry for this month.
He literally learned the trick last night, and got it right on the 3rd try.
He is so freakin' smart, it's spooky.

Salty has trick or treating perfected! I agree, Salty is incredibly smart as well as beautiful:)

Oh yeah, he definitely knows the bone should go IN the pumpkin. I've always said that parrots understand the concept of cheating. When he cheats in other tricks, I'll say 'Fix that' and he will do so. For the sake of brevity in this video I let it slide for the last bone.

Reminds me of Aina (partner's senegal) when she has to put the blue bottle caps into the blue bowl, and the yellow ones into the yellow bowl.

Sometimes she tries to either put all it the same bowl OR take one cap from one bowl and put into another... or do complete opposites.

It has been 5 years or more since she learned it and still cannot grasp the concept or the trick 🤦‍♀️

Is there any trick Salty will start doing when he wants to train/play?

I honestly run out of words for our Salty...
Okay, where's my thesaurus?
Alrighty.
That's a start!
I don't know that Salty is all of those 43 attributes, Gale. He's smart enough to get angry with me for not being home in time to put him to bed last night at his appointed time of 10:00 PM, and delivering a nip to remind me! Smartness in a parrot is a double edged sword! Talk about a real Trick(nip) or Treat(accepting a head scratch).

And a Normal Grey Cockatiel named BB who came home with me on 5/20/2016.
I love this! The ekkie freeze part in the beginning made me laugh. My Ekko is the only one of our birds who can sit absolutely still like that. I'm so happy they are getting along so well:)
If I was a "non bird person" and saw these vid's and photo's I'd be amazed. However,being a birdy guy, I am AMAZED! :D All of these entries and JFF's are spectacular( as always) Going to be so difficult to chose (again...as ALWAYS LOL) Al and his Salty Boy are so in tune with each other. I LOL sooo hard when I hear him laugh (Salty...not Al) and that evil OOooohhh at the end gets me every time. My fav Salty vid,posted awhile back,is when Saltmiester does the slide trick then he eagerly runs back to do it again while laughing and saying OOoohhh! Awesome job Salty,and Al of course!

Horrible quality photo, but it's the best I could do because I didn't want to move and took this on my PC camera on a very dark rainy day, BUT…

You certainly are right about that Farnoosh. No more awe-inspiring treat than winning the trust of a sweet little soul like Paisley. Beautiful pic, my friend! ❤️

Love this pic for several reasons.... Huge breakthrough for you and Paisley!! Image has ethereal tone with ghostly image of background painting and shading of walls. Quite perfect for Halloween theme!
