Can a parrot see a picture of a persons face and know what they see
by Gary Jensen
My double yellow amazon squawks until I come back into view.If I sit where he can see me ,he will talk and make nice noises,but as soon as I leave the screaming starts.Its anoying to say the least.He only started doing this in the last year and a half. We have had him for 10 years now.
We also have an African Grey who is 10 years old that is starting to copy the squawking.If I put a picture of myself in a heavy plastic type picture frame hanging from the top of the cage,will he be able to see it with his eyes,and maybe calm down,and maybe use it as a toy. I have also thought about giving him to friends of ours,for maybe a month,and then bring him back home to see if that would help Thanks for an input.
