Who's a Clever Cockie then?

They may be clever but the much smaller Rainbow Lorikeets scare them off in my garden



Only one sneeks in when I am sitting on the patio.

That really is pretty amazing isn't it? Though perhaps we simply don't credit birds with enough intelligence, and maybe we shouldn't be amazed at their ability to solve problems. It's long been known that crows will drop pebbles into a bucket of water to raise the level of the water enough for them to drink from it, or retrieve food floating in it.

I'm afraid Perth is a touch under 4000km from Wollongong and the WA border has been slammed shut to all residents of NSW.

Re: Who's a Clever Cockie then?

Ok no probs..could not see on your profile where you were..I have a friend David Jones of all names and he has moved down from Perth to Denmark. He did say when we talk on messenger the other day that he tried his phone also and it is dead...He is going up to his kids places in Perth late summer and he is going around his house to see if he can find out anything....Cheers Bruce..

David to the right and My husband to the left..he was best man to his first late wife...Younguns for sure, wow where do the years go,,,and of course there is a whole story why he ended up in Aussieland after the tragic death of his Wife...Hubster still has that tie...lol..not much hair though!!

Re: Who's a Clever Cockie then?

I live parrots, they are so intelligent. I have an African Grey and he is so funny.

If you very never seen a video called Look Who's Talking you need to search the net, its amazing. There is a bare eyed cockatoo who is owned by an Australian woman and its an absolute scream, ilwhen its naughty it shouts out, NOW CUT IT OUT . Too funny. In fact I think I'll go look for it myself and watch it for the 100th time lol
