Floyd is afraid of mirrors do he doesn't have one. When we take him up to a mirror he'll turn around and hide

You mean all birds aren't self centered??

Toby thinks the world revolves around him.... I've tried to explain to him that it doesn't but... well, he doesn't believe me.

My parakeets aren't in love with themselves, but with their toys. At least twice a day they have to go and cuddle with their toys, it's so cute!

Jodi I'm getting there, slowly slowly! If we have injured birds at work now (like pigeons, doves etc. that have been attacked and we need to handle them to inspect for damage, not pet birds) I will actually pick them up and put them in a cage. I would never do that before!!!!
I love hearing bird stories so keep them coming!!!!!

Beekle certainly likes to look at himself in a mirror or window but he's happy to play with me as well. Sometimes I do think he just sees me as a handy mobile perch though

Good for you Carmen!!

Toby is moody just like you and I. It's funny to watch his moods change.

We took him out yesterday to the mall. He was a complete and total goofball. Everytime he saw a little kid (he loves little kids) he would say "Hey Bird" really loudly. He let a little 7 year old girl hold him for a minute. He sat and whistled at her and made kissy noises. Toby likes girls too... he's a FLIRT! It's embarrassing sometimes when you walk by a girl and Toby whistles at 'em. You want to make sure you say to them "it wasn't me!! It was the bird!! "

Our cockatiel is obsessed with mirrors. He constantly checks himself out, and even takes his food over to a mirror to watch himself eat. Self-centered? Ding ding! His cage is currently infront of a wall of mirrors we made for him. Now we know, he'll never get bored.
