When making great conversation, it helps if you are very cute (which typically means you have feathers).
Reason being, regardless of species, beings just tend to pay more attention to your words when there is eye candy to look at too.
But there is also an art to conversation itself.
For instance, you want to make direct eye contact so your conversation partner knows you are really paying attention.
You also want to use welcoming body language to encourage the other being to share more.
And of course offering compliments is always a great way to keep the conversation flowing.
