I have seen it numerous times, and have always wondered why they do it. and today, while watching Americas Funniest Videos, i saw it again.

Why do some birds, trim pieces of paper, and put them on heir bodies like feathers??

Not important or anything, I am just curious as to why they do this??:)

Hey Crittercrazy, I use to have a love bird do it and asked a lady that my mother knows who works at the petshop and also breeds cockatiels/lovebirds/parakeets. She said because they're getting ready to start nesting...

My Cockatiel, Milly, has never worn the paper, but she is an expert at shredding it when she is ready to lay an egg.
