Unless you’ve owned a bird, few truly understand the rich and dynamic personalities portrayed by our fine feathered friends. Sure, they’re not the easiest to snuggle with and can seldom be potty trained, but birds are like little people. In fact, a few species have the intelligence — and temperament — of a 2-year-old human.
Here are 15 character traits we bird owners know to be true.
This poor little budgie doesn't understand why his new mate doesn't want to play.
“Oh, oh… lower. Lower. Yes, please.”
“Wheeeeeee.” Don't we all wish we could wake up with as much energy as our feathered friends?
Being away from one's best friend is disheartening.
"You have friends coming over? Let me put on a wild show for them!"
Happy hour! Just kidding. But seriously — they pretty much throw their own private party when you come home from work.
Fortunately, a bird's doo-doo is preceded by a short stint of bird-twerking. Be on the lookout!
They really do love all the special attention.
That super expensive food item you splurged on at Whole Foods? Your bird is probably eating it right now.
If they're mad, they'll let you know.
Maybe that's just them calling out for attention, but it's usually at super inconvenient times, like when you have work to get done but your bird is all like, "No, let me distract you with my dance instead!"
They're always up for some jokes. That little turtle has never moved so fast in its life.
No modesty. Anywhere, anytime.
And not just themselves. Feathers, hair, fur? Doesn't matter. If it's out of place, it's going to get fixed.
Yeah, they're obnoxiously loud and chatty, but we love them anyway. Our homes would feel so lonely without their constant squawking.
