He bit me and then laughed!

So I just had to share this story because my husband and I were just cracking up at Oliver.

Let me just start by saying that Oliver hasn't bitten me since about November of last year. He just doesn't bite anymore and when he used to, you could always pin it to territory aggression (he never just bites for no reason), so you can imagine my surprise when he is sitting with me at dinner just chattering away and then out of no where-in the middle of me saying something to my husband-Oliver bites into the soft part of my fingertip. Really hard! It was so hard, way harder then he ever has bitten me before. I couldn't help but yell out a bit in surprise and pain. Then Oliver just started laughing. He was actually laughing for several seconds or even minutes! He was doing his heart wings at the same time that he was cracking up. OMG, my husband and I started laughing and it was just hilarious.

I still don't know why he did it, but he sure does know how to make sure he doesn't get in trouble It is hard to be mad at a tiny, adorable, laughing yellow fluff ball.

It must be an Oliver thing. I have a Long Billed Corella called Oliver. Last year at his first show some stupid man tried to feed him a sunflower seed. Oliver bit him and then said Gotcha. Man was not as upset over the bite as he said it was his own fault, but the bird saying Gotcha annoyed him with its sarcasm.

Oliver is a little rascal. I agree, no matter what they do, you can't get mad. I tell Miss Kauai that she is a bad girl, but you're so cute.

4thebirds, you know that parrots won't share. From Ollie's point of view you are h i s wife, but you talked to your husband.
Maybe he wanted to attact your attention.
