When I first got Jo Jo, the breeder told me that I should not allow mirrors in her cage if I wanted her to bond with me. So, I didn't put any in and used tiny stuffed animals (small parts and ribbons removed for safety) for her 'friends'. It worked like a charm!

The first time I showed Jo Jo a mirror was a couple of years ago when she was four years old. I stood real close to the mirror with her on my shoulder and pointed at my image in the mirror saying "Mama" then pointing to myself. Then I pointed at Jo Jo's reflection and said "Jo Jo" then pointed at her. It has now morphed into a game ... when I stand by a mirror now, she will try to say "Mama" which comes out sounding a little like "Mee-mee" and her own name which sounds like "Ju-Ju". When she tries to talk, she fluffs out and shakes her whole body as she makes her sounds ... it is really cute and funny to watch.

However, if I put a mirror in her cage now, she will attack it ... "Thou shalt have no other yellow birds before me." :-) :love:

So many things I miss from having a flock of birds, one of them is to see them talking.
I hope u can record a video of her talking... :3

We finally got a decent video camera ... I just have to figure out how to use it. Oh, yes ... and to catch her talking. You know how fickle they can be and will be quiet the minute you try to video them! lol

Well, there are more budgies at big pet stores like PetSmart and Petco, usually there's only one or two at the bird store, but mostly it's bigger birds. Chica will tweet at other birds, but the funny thing is... when my friend brought over her budgie, she was only a bit interested, then abandoned him to go peck herself in the mirror. She left the real bird for a virtual one! :XD: And I usually take her in a little cage when she goes to the store because she can fly. She goes maybe a couple times a year, and is very chirpy.

:iconsighingplz: I hope not. I have a bad history with a narcissist, and it is just about my least favorite personality type. Chica loves to interact with people, more than birds, I think she's a bit unfamiliar with interacting with birds since she hasn't been with them since she was a chick. When I leave the rooms she chirps for me to come back.

But it does remind me of a song called Cerulean Blue by Replacer. [link]
"To call her narcissistic is an understatement and yet
She's just that good, it's not surprising that it goes to her head"
I'll admit she is a bit proud... ^ ^

I've heard a story like your Chica. Once the owner bought the bird mate, it didn't cry anymore if the owner left the house ^^;

Aww... yeah that's why I haven't gotten another budgie, despite temptations.
The people in my house are her flock, and she is pretty attached and loyal to us.

My birds get freaked out when they see the mirror, because they're wondering where I've been hiding these other birds. *lol* My senegal wants to attack. The nanday becomes very alert.

Hmm, Papao likes to check the back of the mirror every time she sees her reflection. Sometimes she just stares blank when she finds nothing there, wondering where the doppelganger goes...

Probably because there is not a safe spot left in front of the mirror when 4 of his family members admiring themselves in front of the mirror...

I wonder what they think about their mirror image. :D
I mean - dolphins, some apes and elephants can recognize themselves in the mirror, and I'm curious if parrots can do the same.
