    B&G (Jack), MM (Maynard) - RIP, Hy (Zaf), GW (Salsa), NC (Bozley)
    I think it may be more of a macaw thing and a cockatoo thing than a general parrot thing. I've seen lots of 'toos do it as well. As for my four macs, Zaf and Salsa do the up n down bobbing all the time. Whereas Jack hasn't ever done it during the nearly 36 years he's been with me! He does however do his side-to-side swaying.

    So since Jack and Lucky are both B&Gs, this suggests to me that the bobbing-dance proneness may not be so much species-related as it may be personality-related. But I also think both of those aspects may contribute to some degree.

    Then there's Maynard. He does neither the bobbing nor the swaying... so go figure . This all suggests that while the up n down bobbing seems more of a macaw and cockatoo thing than a general parrot thing, it as well seems to be directly related to a bird's particular personality. In any case, I think it's a cute and interesting trait

    Is it love???

    I love seeing birds do the swaying dance. Rosie doesn't do it but I wish she would. It so reminds me of Stevie Wonder and puts a big smile on my face.

    You're right. It really is a cute and interesting trait. Also, I really like the message in your signature to adopt older birds.

    I too love watching the swaying dance. I have a couple that do. Adopted an older bird the other day. Feeling happy.

He is however about a quarter of the weight of Lucky so it must be quite a strain on your back muscles. Osteopaths are expensive!
    Wow, I really love parrots. Parrots are amazing because they can copy your sound and they bite really very hard. They like chillies and their eggs are also amazing.

    GeorgeBernard, do you have any parrots yourself? How did you become interested in them?
