Do gender biased parrots understand human gender roles?
I know in the parrot world, many individual pet parrots prefer one gender over another when it comes to their humans. For example, my friend's rainbow lory loves to interact and cuddle with men but hates women with a passion.
But does the parrot just know whether you, the human, is a male or female? Or they learn by getting environmental cues from typical human gender characteristics?
Like how would a men-biased parrot react to a man comes in wearing a long wig and a dress? Would parrot still seek attention from this human or would the parrot treat the man as if the man was a woman?
