Thanks Helen – that bird has so many different facial expressions – who would believe it!

Hehe – I think we should re-meme Bishop as giving the Stinky Eye instead of the Death Stare. Good one, Gabe.

Are those little buggers as aggressive as Rainbow Lorikeets?
October 2, 2014 at 1:27 pm
Probably more aggressive Stafford (depending on the relationship with the person) and their beaks would be stronger – was talking to a lady at the pet shop who had one and her friend’s lip got completely ripped in half by an Alexandrine – she needed stitches at the hospital. Our neighbour gave us this bird – had no idea how noisy they would be either (ear splitting squorks)!

I can just imagine the glare of disapproval from the parakeet.

The eyes narrow significantly when the parakeet is annoyed and they open up wide when she is looking at my husband, who she adores!
