A little fun with our Sun Conure (Sunshine) a wonderful little youtube clip of his latest antics to leave you smiling for the rest of the day….
Until recently it was thought that man was first to use tools. This recently uncovered video from 2012 clearly shows a beautiful (and very clever) Sun Conure using a shovel to dig :-)
We have no idea how Sunshine learnt / decided to utilise a bottle top as a shovel, but once he realised how effective it was, he leaps into action with his little plastic shovel the moment new food arrives. The room fills with joyful sounds of his activity and in a mattter of minutes the floor of his cage is covered with the new seed. We have now incorported a secondary catch-tray beneath the food bowl to make sure he has something to eat after he has finished his excavation. Sunshine delights in this activity, and makes us all begin our day with laughter… Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ35 Southland New Zealand May 2012
