Is Your Bird An Introvert Or An Extrovert?

Take this quiz to gauge whether your bird is an introvert or an extrovert.

In the December 2009 issue of BIRD TALK Magazine, you learned about extroverted vs introverted birds. Now take our quiz and find out if your pet bird is an introvert or an extrovert or both!

1) Whenever someone approaches your bird’s cage, your bird:
a. Leaps from whatever distance to grab the cage bars nearest you and tweet, "Hello."
b. Slowly stretches its wings, fluffs up its feathers and waits to see what the person does.
c. Scurries to hides behind a mirror or favorite cloaking toy.

2) Open the cage door and your pet bird is likely to:
a. Raise its foot to give the “Pick Me Up” command.
b. Climbs out on to a playgym on the cage top but ignores the “Step Up” cue.
c. Hiss, grumble or lunge.

3) You’re hosting your book club and your bird is:
a. Congenially being passed by you from visitor to visitor, getting
scratches and enjoying words of praise from all in attendance.
b. Chewing contentedly on sisal hanging from its playstand, occasionally whistling.
c. Sounding the alarm to any bird within a mile radius that dangerous, possibly armed (albeit, with scones), strangers have invaded its home.

4) It’s feeding time and you are busy. Your roommate/partner fills in as a back-up caretaker. This causes your bird to:
a. Make a few side-to-side glances then fluff up and preen for this exciting new feeder.
b. Hesitantly accept that you won’t be the one attending to it today, and this stand-in will probably forget to hide the macadamia nut or millet in the right spot.
c. Attack, attack, attack!

5) Your bird is sitting contently on your lap watching TV with you, when your friend stops by for a surprise visit. Your bird:
a. Leans forward for a closer look and to give out cat call whistle.
b. Is intrigued by this newcomer but climbs up to your shoulder to give them a look over from there.
c. Screeches in protest by the presence when this guest attempts to pet it.

Kazoo is extroverted up until someone wants to handle him. Other than that, he is the life of the party and unless you pay attention to him, he gets VERY upset!
