Birds & Babes

How do these birds know not to take a chunk out of a baby? And how do the babies know not to squeeze or swat at the bird? There seems to be some kind of understanding here… which I don’t understand.

Babies & Birds

Is it just me reading too much into this–or do the birds in this video actually understand what a human baby is, and have a wish to please the baby? Given that parrots and parakeets are surely at least as smart as cats and dogs, I think it very likely that they do.

Just don’t let the baby use the little yellow bird as a pacifier.
