Default Animal Antics -- Parrots-McCaws?? Crazy birds

Here are two shots taken in Kona, Hawaii on the big island. They are not the same bird.

In the first shot, the bird took about two minutes to get the cap off the bottle. He did not tip the bottle. He wanted the cap which he promptly mutilated!

The second shot although shot with my camera, was not shot by me but by the owner of the birds. That's me in the purple shirt. The d--- bird grabbed my glasses and removed them from my face. The expression of terror was because I didn't know what he was going to grab next or if he would drop the glasses to the sidewalk.

Cal,
I see that you fell for the birds.

I agree these fellas are very friendly in a sometimes nuisance sort of way. Those are pretty colorful Aloha shirts.

Cheers, Selvin

Very cunning birds, and lovely captures, Cal!

The 2nd photo is a real 'memory keeper' - your expression is priceless! As I also wear glasses, I can just imagine what you're going through.

Aloha indeed!

Paul
