Have you ever had a moment with your parrot, where you say to yourself "how the hec did you know to say that?" Or do a double take after they have caught you unawares? My B&G often uses the most appropiate sayings at the most appropriate times. Like he bites and then asks you "was that sore?". He even cocks his head to see your expression. Or he falls off his perch and proclaims "Ow!" The one day I was playing with him, by tickling and cuddling him by putting my face in his feathers, for him to turn to me and say Nooooo! He has also tapped me on the shoulder and has asked me for a kiss. The best was today, we had a black out, so we went to the electricity box to switch the lights back on. And as we enter the room, the one African grey James starts barking! Our own little gaurd dog! we laughed so hard as it was so unexpected and yet so appropriate.
