Sorry I’ve been MIA (I’ve been sewing masks for local healthcare workers about 12 hours a day)...OMG, thanks. What a special birdie!
I didn't know a wild parrot, especially a member of a flock, could be that tame and desire affection from a human.
I wonder whether he was raised by humans.
But then I'd be surprised that it would have the social skills to function in, and be accepted into, a flock.
This confounds me, and I love it.
I've always thought of tame vs. wild as a very black and white thing in parrots, with no overlapping gray area possible.
Wild birds taking food handouts is one thing, but this parrot clearly formed a very close social bond with the woman.
I love having my "knowledge" challenged.
Thanks so much for posting.
This is amazing.
