Warning - Parrots are Thieves!

 

It's an amazing experience to have a parrot sit on you. It's less amazing when they pinch your gold jewellery, dissemble your earrings and eat your buttons. Yes, these are natural parrot behaviours.

Swallowing the pearl from Grandma's favourite earring can also be very bad for the parrot. Expensive vet bills can ensue. Please dress appropriately.
