Interspecies flock life comes with all kinds of perks.

You can count on always being the best-looking one in group photos.

You have plenty of “beta” flock mates to boss around.

If another flock member’s breakfast looks better than yours, you can poach it.

Of course, the same holds true in reverse, and you can’t always assume your flock mates will be quick to take the hint.

Let’s say you are just minding your own business, chowing down on your cockatiel breakfast, when all of a sudden you see your large featherless flock mate approaching.

Out of the corner of your eye, you notice she is eyeing your breakfast with great interest.

This is your signal to act quickly by “staking your claim” (a technical term).

Cockatiel breakfast bowl 1
You might just be casually chowing on breakfast, when all of a sudden a fellow (large, featherless) flock member starts moving in your direction.
Cockatiel Breakfast Bowl 2
By placing one (cute, pink) foot on both breakfast bowls at the same time, you send the clear message that this breakfast is taken.

Of course, not all flock members are so quick on the uptake. Here, a (piercingly cute) glare may be required to send the poacher packing.

  1. One of my guys sits in the bowl to keep others away. Anyone brave enough to try to approach from a corner gets “the look” which Pearl seems to have perfected.
