3 January 2016
The cockatoos convened a round-table (or more accurately round-pool) meeting to discuss their New Year’s resolutions. The consensus was:
1. Resolve to eat more from the bird feeding tray.
2. Step up the training of the Bird Feeding Tray Replenisher via negative reinforcement – ie chew the nearby wooden window frames every time the feeding tray has failed to be replenished within 30.5 seconds of it being emptied.
Although it is only day 3, they are sticking to their resolutions remarkably well. They are suitably impressed with their own abilities…the Bird Feeding Tray Replenisher is less enthused about their progress.
