Question: Why All the Head-Bobbing?

Reader Keith asks:

Dear Marv,

Why do parrots bob up and down? It's a curious looking motion. Does it serve any purpose?

Dear Keith:

I cannot speak for other parrots, but I do not "bob up and down." I am actually nodding, in continuous agreement with all my brilliant thoughts.

You should be doing this as well.

Also, sometimes it's because I'm listening to metal.


Here is a video of parrots who think they are sheep.

Those baby macaws were very cute. Marv - you are one handsome bird yourself.

Can your human make a movie of you talking and saying clever things?
