Lily says sorry.

When Lily screams to get my attention, I turn my back to her until she calms down. She has pretty much stopped the "omg, I want to play, get me out of my cage, now!" tantrums since I started doing this. Today, she did this when I put her in her cage so I could go to work. When I turned around, she got quiet, and then I heard a quiet, "Ssssooorrrryyyyyy!

When ever I accidentally hit a sore pinnie and she squeaks, I say " sorry!". I guess she picked it up. That she understands it is an apology, and that her temper tantrum upset me, amazes me.

Birds are just so smart.
