Teleconferencing With Parrots

People seem skeptical when I tell them my wife and I use Skype to teleconference with our parrots when either of us is away.

Well .... These are Skype screen shots off my computer at our home in Tucson, where I have been for a month, working on a book. My wife and our blue-and-gold macaw, Petey, and our African Grey, Rosie, were at our home in New Jersey.

And parrots are amazingly technologically savvy. They get it immediately, and talk back. Except the little grey one seems to think I am actually inside my wife's laptop, and keeps marching behind it to look.
