Gary, good idea for his own food show, but I think the title needs amending to "The Feathered Gourmand"... His obvious enjoyment (in both type of food and amount) extends far beyond the norm, methinks.
I really like that he has his own little cute birdie dish on the table. At least he doesn't try to swipe food off your plate, as Bonnie does (even though she has her own supply of the SAME food).

Biteybird, it's funny you should say that. Mr P will climb up on my shoulder at dinner and survey the table to ensure he IS getting the same thing we are eating. Once he has determined that what is in his dish is the same as what is on our plates, then he will happily eat from his own dish. However, if he notices that we are eating something that he doesnt have (normally something not bird friendly) he will make an attempt to snag stuff from my plate, or worse, go straight to the source (the bowl its being served from) and try to snag some from there.
LOL.... I just love these pictures. Oscar is much the same when it comes to eating my meal. I try to convince him to get his own off my plate but he would rather sit on my hand and let me feed it to him.... (got me well trained). I have learned to eat everything with one hand now... lol

For a long time, Mr P was afraid to stand on any flat surface so he would sit on my hand and eat out of the dish. It has just been within the past few months that he will willingly stand on the table. So, I understand eating with one hand! yes, our FIDS sure have us trained
