This is so cute when I go up to my birds they will do this... hunker down, spread wings and ask to be pet. Sooo adorable! Never thought I would say that about a bird! I also think I am spoiling them a bit , when I go to the back door they come running as fast as their two little feet will carry them to be fed treats! (Leftovers) Of course, the dog our little yorkie gets into heated debates with them to share food, but the birds always gang up on her and win! Its really kinda fun to watch a dog back down to birds!
