Funny fid stories

I didn't see a thread like this, and I always love to see these threads. Most feathered kids are jokesters, with such wonderful senses of humor and seem to enjoy making us laugh. Just post a funny story or quirk...or two about your fids you'd love to share.

My blue fronted amazon parrot, Joey, in particular seems to love just messin' with people. Heaven forbid you're visiting for the first time and don't know what he's up to. He will mimick the phone ringing, and then when your go towards the phone to answer it, he immeadiately begins his version of laughter (this is one of the few things he does that is not very clear). He is so proud of himself for "tricking" you. He will often strut while he laughs, and he has a naughty look in his eye. If you do not fall for this, he will eventually begin to scream "Come here, Come Here, COME HERE" getting louder and louder in volume until someone gives in. Either way he's greeting you with laughter and a strut. It's even funnier when he calls "Come here" and the dog comes and he starts laughing and my poor old doggie is confused. Silly old boy.

He will also call "Come here, come here" and then when you arrive, will then tell you "Good bye". It's not a very...advanced "trick" but it always makes me laugh.

My conure, Gizmo, just likes to steal things. Random things...not even food lol If I'm doing homework she will walk over, very slowly, and then grab either my pencil or piece of paper and make a get away. One time she stole my eraser, and I spent 30 minutes looking for it until I found it....torn into bitty pieces on the floor. Good foot toy I suppose for only 25 cents

"You own those biting, screeching, chewing machines?"
-falls on ground laughing- "Actually they own me...and I love it."

You're never dressed without your smile, or your parrots feathers.

too funny!!

Let's see... One of my favorites is my linnie, Loki. If he's separated from his girlfriend he cries "oh nooooo, baaaaby, ooooh noooo!" Also does that if something bad happens - someone falls off the cage, he's upset by something, etc. He also, when scared or stressed will dive bomb my *ahem* chest and hide in there lol

YouTube- loki crying
As for Goober... she's just a dork lol. She'll sit on my shoulder then roll on her side to chew her foot and fall, rolling all the way down till she lands on my back, belly up, and she'll look at me, cock her head and go "Goooooober!"

I'm fostering a Quaker now who came from a Russian family, so when she says "step-up" it comes out like a command, complete with accent! She reminds me of a little army general, lol.

My BFA will attempt to out-do anyone who is trying to have a conversation in her immediate area, especially if you've just gotten home from work and are trying to tell your spouse about your day!

Poor Loki, calling for his girl! And Goober...what a silly girl. Dorks are the best

Russian generals would scare me... Blue fronted amazons seem to love to talk or scream whenever you really just want them to be quiet. Alot of times they win, no?
