Secret Sex Lives of Parrots
Smokey is a male Congo African Grey parrot that we fostered for a time. He has one particular toy in his cage that he favors. On occasion in the middle of the night, in the pitch black dark, we would hear the bell on the toy start ringing. Now we know why.
We are happy to report that Smokey's new mom hears that bell ringing on occasion in the middle of the night. Now she knows why!
We discovered that Smokey's amorousness (if that's a word) was not solely focused on his bell. Hands would suffice just as well.
And since we're on the topic of birds masturbating, we know your life is not complete if you've never seen a hummingbird masturbate. So here you go.
