I read an anecdote from someone whose African Grey didn’t particularly get along with her Amazon parrot, Paco. One night she was preparing cornish hens for dinner, while the grey hung out with her in the kitchen. He got a closer look at one of the hens, looked his mama dead in the eyes and asked, “Paco?” Then he laughed.
that is one sadistic bird
I am slightly afraid now.
I love birds?
African Grey Parrots are one of the smartest birds, and seems they can be known to play “jokes” or “pranks” on their owners or any visitors.
I was visiting a friend of the family one time and I was just casually watching tv when I thought I heard the water running. I go into the kitchen but everything’s fine. the parrot looks at me and says “gotcha”.
Parrots are awesome.
My parrot loved to answer the phone when no one was looking.
And call the dogs as soon as they fell asleep.
Or… when I moved from Nevada to Arizona, I moved the parrot first. I dropped her off at the new house and told her “I’ll be right back.”. I had to drive back to Nevada and come back in the morning. When I got back, she turned her back on me and muttered “Be right back.”
Or how about all of those times she made the ICQ “UH OH” message notification noise to get my attention?
Greys are brutal. :x
