Private Parrots no. 4 So...the parrots often teamed up and one would groom the other for about 10 minutes. It seemed to be quite an elaborate and predictable ritual, with the groomer working through various parts of the other bird's feathers. The most photogenic part was when the groomee would extend its wing as shown here. The grooming seemed to be hierarchical - when this groomer had finished its work, it hopped down to a lower branch and started all over again with another bird.
