My Bird is So Smart

It is not news that parrots require a lot of toys. Some things to destroy, some to make noise, some to dispense treats, some just to figure out. Kiwi the Grey doesn't destroy things as fast as, say, a cockatoo. But then, she is sometimes convinced that a toy is going to eat her. (Have you seen those piƱata things? From the Devil, she thinks.) So I am always looking for new things to try.

Barrel of Fun is a little plastic thing that hides a treat. The bird must figure out how to twist the "key" at the end to open it. It is a bit more difficult because it unlocks at an awkward point. Kiwi has figured it out and opened it three days in a row.
Not a fluke.

She also poses for pictures very well. I am incredibly proud of her.
