|Maybe if we hang around long enough, they'll feed us!|
Last night, they were banging things around. They don't intentionally damage things, but I worry they may throw something to the ground, breaking it. When they continued to bang, I went in there to see what was going on and retrieve them to the living room. I did not expect to be so entertained by them.
|Pretending to eat onions will definitely get us attention!|
As they were banging things, they kept an eye on the hall I'd be emerging from, and as soon as they glimpsed me, they ran over to pretend to eat the onions. (They did this twice last night, so the second time in particular I paid close attention to their behavior and observed this.) They did not actually want to eat onions -- they would have done so quietly. Nope, they wanted a reaction. If this continues, we're going to have to figure out a new place for the onions.
Just to be clear -- onions are on the danger list of foods for parrots and they do not eat them.
