Presently have six Greenwing Macaw (17 yo), Red Fronted Macaw (12 yo), Red Lored Amazon (17 y.o.), Lilac Crowned Amazon (about 43 y.o.) and a Congo African Grey (11 y.o.)
Panama Amazon (1 Y.O.)
So, this morning when I was getting breakfast for the birds, Tusk and Lila were doing their usual waddling around on the floor number. Tusk decided to hide under the macaw cage, and he will routinely play a game where he pops his head out and grab one of my toes as I walk by...

Only this time he did it just hard enough to make me jump. Problem was I had two full bowls of water in my hand at the time... which of course, immediately sent a large puddle of water splashing down on Tusk's head...

This is a bird that absolutely HATES water. He was NOT amused.

He popped his head out again, and gave me a look that would kill... and then said, "HEY! WHAT'S THAT STUFF?!"

:D That's a phrase I use with him when he's acting up... doing something he's not supposed to do. "Dad, I was only playing. Why'd you dump water on my head? That was sooooo not cool!" :D

They say the darndest things! And right at the right moment too!

My Smokes detested hands..would NOT step up.only if cornered.
She was on the kitchen table playing with an empty med bottle one day while I cleaned up. It was time to bring her back to her house,so naturally I had to chase her around the table,till she cornered herself..
She then looked me directly in the eyes...and said... " What the H*** are you doing??"
I almost fell over! Where did she pick that up from, I have no clue..
