“….or is it Memorex?”
Memorex was one of the first producers of audio tapes. In their early commercials, they portrayed people having a difficult time distinguishing whether the sound came from a live person or a recording.
I have the same sort of issue with TV. I often can’t tell the difference if a raptor is really in front of me in 3-D or just a two-dimensional moving object across a pixilated screen!
Mom and dad love watching “Nature”, “Natural Geographic” and “Oasis” channels which host many animal-based documentaries. I love keeping them company (actually, I have difficulty staying away from them when I am out of the cage!) when they watch these (or any other) shows.
I either play “the door”, by sitting on mom’s chest while she is in semi-prone position on the couch. “What???? Why shouldn’t I have the best seat in the house?” My positioning makes it difficult for her to watch so she usually tries to get me to move over to her left shoulder so that she can see the TV! Otherwise, I will move over to dad’s left shoulder or onto the bicycle seat.
TV often makes me sleepy, and I usually get some shut-eye. Except, of course when there is a hunt going on! I hear the sounds of those raptor and immediately come alive!
I bow down, come up (along with my crest), spread open my wings and hiss! I need to make myself look big and fierce! I probably should run over to mom for protection but I don’t want those big birds to think I am a wuss!
I also react to others birds too! I find them fascinating and try to communicate or at least let them know that “I am here”! The sounds of primates sometimes get me confused though. Silly monkey! Not sure why they want to sound like us birdies!
