In most featherless circles, there is a misconception that feathered beings are messy eaters.

In fact, just the opposite is the case.

Feathered beings are such neatnicks they can’t stand to have any detritus lingering – on their feet, feathers, beaks or anywhere.

Such beings who are lucky enough to have quick, well-trained large featherless waitresses may not struggle much with this issue.

But for feathered beings whose waitresses are still, well, learning, a well-timed “covert fling” can make all the difference in maintaining dining sanity.

Well this dish looks tasty - I'll just have some.

Sigh. I can feel the buildup on my neat curved beak, but my waitress is still working on the last assignment I gave her.

  1. Wow! Amazing photo of the fling! I have been hit so many times with flying cooked rice but never realized how concentric the fling is.

  2. Wow, I agree with Roxy. That pic is just grand! And his face showing his satisfaction, priceless!! Love you Pearl. Have a nice weekend full of tasty treats.

  3. Yeah I saw that covert fling ! My Vinny is neurotic if I don’t remove the empty branch from his Millet spray. He takes it to the corner of the cage bottom till Mom removes it ! And hopefully replaces it with more Millet ! LOL !
