    You are welcome to view “GR (African Grey) invites you to a game of snap”.

    Intechfs- as for the tone of the voice, l can use any tone and he will still know what the answers are (I have used children to do this in their own voices) so you can outrule this in respect.

    Intechfs – The only time l show him the board is when we are interacting and the only reason for the board is, he knows that it is lesson time thats all – I do not use any cues or indicate to the bird with any expressions what so ever.

    I am sure these people love their dear bird, but why not put the board on the table. The reason is most probably that there are subtle cues given by how the board is handled. There is no doubt that the bird is perceptive, but to prove the bird’s intelligence, the board should be placed flat on the table surface and the owner should state the requested response one time in a neutral voice.

    Dear Mintrvo1 -Be assured that GR is greatly loved and greatly respected with care – He is part of our soul and fits in perfectly with our family – (we are part of his flock.
    He is the love of our lives, he enlightens every minute of our lives….
