I love this! A useful thing to teach a bird... sure beats the ol' "Polly wants a cracker" crap! :biggrin:

Since bird people have the advantage over dog people of being able to teach their pets how to tell people who they are, I'll take this as yet another opportunity to remind everyone how your dog can tell people who he is and how to get him home... his ID tag and microchip are his voice. Don't take his tag off because you think he doesn't need it when he's hanging around the house and the jingling is driving you nuts. Don't tell yourself you'll get around to microchipping him one of these days. Make sure your dog has his "voice" so he can find his way home!
