Saliva

I know that dog and cat saliva is poisonous to birds, but is our saliva poisonous to them as well?

Macaw tongues are certainly the most unique, especially the big macaws like GW and Hyacinths

What an odd conversation...I wonder what the birds would think if they knew we were obsessing over their tongues, eh?
