Yesterday I dropped into a pet store called Fauna on the Upper West Side, because it had a sign saying “Exotic Birds” and I thought: “Sweet! Free zoo.” Indeed, it had a small bird habitat with all sorts of awesome birds.
I got into a conversation with Daniel, the store’s owner, about the bonding abilities of these animals. I looked at their small heads, imagined their small brains, and said: “These things probably could care less about humans.”
In response, Daniel opened the cage of a nearby parrot. The parrot instantly darted out, landed on Daniel’s shoulder, and started frantically nuzzling against his face. It was quite a demonstration. What amazing creatures.
