It's time for Tuesdays' Show & Tail' over at Angela's West Virginia Treasures! If you have a cute story and picture of a pet, or any furry (or non-furry) friend, you are welcome to join in! Check her blog for the rules, post away - and thanks, Angela, for being our host!This is a photo of Mr. Wonderful and Presto3. You may have seen this photo before. Presto3 is a Lovebird, and Lovebirds communicate with squawks and whistles and squeaks - NO Back Talking! There are some who claim they have been able to teach their Lovebirds to speak...I have not tried. I do know male parakeets are able to learn, and larger parrots. I have yet to see a Lovebird that can talk. Do you know of any? If you do, tell me - it would be great to hear of any out there!
Presto3 has been fairly friendly in all of his 2.5 years. He does not prefer to be hand fed, and ignores the foods that my previous Lovebirds have enjoyed. He loves to perch on Mr. Wonderful's spectacles and watch the Boob Tube in the evenings - it's his favorite spot to park!
FYI, it is possible to tell if a bird is right or left handed (footed)! When you extend your finger for it to "step up", the foot it prefers to use first to perform the feat is how you find out! So now, you can impress your friends and relatives with that little tidbit of information! By the way - - - Presto3 is Right Handed!
